The last weeks of a four-year journey for many of us. Our senior year is almost over although it seems
like it was yesterday when we were getting our schedule and meeting our new teachers. Some of us feel sad, while others could not be more ready to leave Highschool. Either way, we will all be left with
memories that will remain with us for the rest of our lives. Yes, school was hard at times. We all got frustrated because of our assignments, not to forget all the teachers we sometimes got annoyed at (we all did it... let’s admit it). We got stressed because of the
projects we decided to do last minute and ranted about the excess work we were given. But besides all
this, I assure you most of us would decide to live this experience all over again because, besides all the
bad things, there were memorable moments.
Yes, we leave Deming Highschool behind, but we keep all the good memories we had. We will no longer
walk through the hallways as we used to, but our laughs will remain. We will no longer sit down in our
classrooms, but our conversations will remain. Even all those games of UNO many of us played where
some of us were forced to eat what felt like the whole deck of cards; will also remain in our memory.
We are now to move on with our lives and embark on the real world as many might say. For those who
have been ready since day one, I congratulate you. But for those who have been unsure since day one,
the truth is that although it is hard to let go of phases in our lives, we must move on. Many say that we
are in the best years of our lives, that college will be one of the best experiences, so why not be excited
about it? Being so close to graduation, we are now creating the last memories of our high school journey. We are so close to the day when we will have to say our goodbyes. The day when we will no longer say “see you tomorrow” but instead “until we see each other again”. Some of us might not even see each other again. But no matter what, we will always have the memories and experiences to unite us. We will
always be able to say that we were once Wildcats.
Reflections On Graduation...
By Calleigh Sweetser
My final article for the Deming High School Broadcaster is dedicated to the Senior class of two-thousand twenty-two. As we enter the next chapter of our lives, I believe it is important to reflect on those who shaped us and helped us to become the people we are today.
First, to my teachers, thank you for pushing me to accomplish my
goals and do the best I can. Thank you for being willing to work with my hectic schedule and giving grace where you could. I will never forget the support you provided throughout the past four years, and the wisdom and knowledge you have departed to me.
To my “enemies,” though I hope there are few, I’m sorry for anything I did to cause animus between us. I hope that as we mature and move forward, we can progress past our differences and put a little more peace into a world that so desperately needs it.
To my family, thank you for supporting me throughout my entire life. Thank you for encouraging me to try new things and branch out, even if I was hesitant. You are so much of who I am and I hope that I make you all proud.
Finally, to my wonderful friends. We made it! Thank you for standing by me through some of my worst moments and making high school bearable. Often, my only motivation to come to school was to see you all. Whether it be practicing our choir songs, writing and recording podcasts, playing D&D or just watching movies together, so many of my best memories include you. Thank you for putting up with me these past years and I promise to annoy you every now and then in the future. I love you!
To future classes, this is my advice: enjoy your time here. We may be a small town, but we are not short on opportunities. Anything you enjoy doing can be found if you look in the right places. Join clubs, organizations, and activities, and don’t allow yourself to be bored or take these years for granted. Life is too short to spend it hating where you are.
So, this is officially my sign off from the Deming High School
Broadcaster. I can’t say that high school was without challenges, but I can say that great friends and great memories more than make up for any hardship. I will remember my time at Deming High School with a fondness and I look toward the future with hope.
Go Wildcats, and CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2022!!!
Kardashian V. Blac Chyna trial
By: Erika Hernandez
Black Chyna is an influencer and model who co-starred with Rob Kardashian on E!’s reality show, “Rob & Chyna,” which aired for one season in 2016. Chyna is suing the Kardashian family seeking $109,635,021 in economic damages and an additional $36 million in general damages for emotional distress. In a motion seeking dismissal, filed this past week by the Kardashians attorney, Michael G. Rhodes, the family is asking the court to dismiss Chyna’s claims. Rhodes represents Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner, who are all defendants testifying in the current trial. The case revolves around Chyna’s 2017 lawsuit, which alleges that Rob Kardashian, her ex-fiancé with whom she shares a five-year-old daughter, was abusive and that the Kardashian-Jenners were responsible for the cancellation of the former couple’s short-lived show. Chyna sued the entire family over claims of defamation, assault, battery, domestic violence, and interference with prospective economic relations. That same year, the family responded to the claims with their own lawsuit, alleging that Chyna was the one who
attacked Rob Kardashian.
New Mexico Film Prize Jr
By: Alyssa Olivas
Deming High School participated in the New Mexico Film Prize and summitted two films. Deuce by Joaquin Kriegel, starring Kevin Martinez and Mr. Hand. This film is about a teenage
boy who is always late to class, he gets warned about his tardies and told not to be late again. Shockingly, he is and it’s all because he couldn’t make it to the restroom. This film took place at
Deming High School and won the “Audience Choice Award”.
The second film summited by Deming High School was Estela en el Mar, starring Gabriel Ruiz Ruiz and Luna Robledo. This is a documentary about the lives of kids who travel from Palomas,
Mexico, to school in Deming NM. The struggles they face and everything they do in order to go to school here. The teens talked about what they must do every morning and how early they
wake up to make the bus and how late they get home after school. This film took the overall win and won best documentary, with this being the first time this competition has ever been held in New Mexico! This year’s Festival took place in Espanola, New Mexico.

The Deming high school drama class put together the play Aladdin and demonstrated it to the school. The play starts off by a girl with a white dress and a blue cover singing Arabian night. Kevin Martinez as the main protagonist Aladdin, Calleigh Sweetser as princess jasmine, and Caiden Gray as the genie. The play had to be put in a nutshell since it could only last one class period, but it was still a good play. The cast interacted a lot with the crowd, which made the play more entertaining and funnier. The props were well showed and used throughout the whole play, which made the scenery feel more alive. Calleigh
(princess jasmine) sang the song speechless with her actual voice instead of air syncing to it. The play will be held at the auditorium at 6:00pm 4/30/2022.

Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar. During Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn till sunset, meaning they cannot consume food nor drinks throughout the day. The main reason Muslims are obligated to doing so is because God asked them to do it, therefore they must obey. Another reason
is so they feel what the people who suffer from poverty feel most of the time when they are unable to purchase food or drinks. But Ramadan isn’t only about not eating nor drinking, but it also allows
Muslims to devote themselves to their faith and come closer to Allah, or God. Fasting is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which form the basis of how Muslims live their lives.
Within our community, the number of Muslims has increased throughout the past years, therefore learning about the religion could make them feel more welcome here. One thing us Muslim
students struggle with at school during Ramadan is the P.E. class, many P.E. teachers don’t know anything about Ramadan which leads them to not excusing the students from running and working out. I think teachers should always consider the cultural differences between the students and should excuse a student from things such as working out when there is a valid reason such as fasting.
Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard
By: Erika Hernandez
Johnny Depp has sued Amber Heard, his ex-wife, on grounds that she defamed him in an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post. The defamation trial in Virginia
between the actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has become a fierce battleground over the truth about their relationship, with both sides accusing the other of repeated domestic abuse in what was an unquestionably tumultuous marriage.
Amber Heard, wrote an Op-Ed for The Washington Post referring to herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” After more than a year of legal sparring, Heard then countersued Depp, alleging that he defamed her when his former lawyer released
statements saying her allegations of abuse were a hoax. Many of the allegations being aired in the courtroom have already been heard in a British case, Depp lost, in which the actor sued The Sun newspaper for printing a headline that called him a “wife beater.” The Trial, which started with opening arguments on April 12, is expected to last about six weeks.
STOP THIS by Autyana Bollier
Scientists are speaking out about climate change (Impacts on fossil fuels) Peter Kalmus, Nasa scientist risks his career to warn the nation. Scientist are gluing their hands to the buildings and are being arrested just for trying to warn us about the future. They said we are going to lose everything, and they are not joking or lying or exaggerating. Scientist said we only have around 3 years left so Here are some ways you can help stop it:
-Delete unwanted apps and emails
-hand and wash clothes outside instead of a washer or dryer
-Use reusable bags and properly recycle
-Use ECOSIA as your search engine They will plant trees for every 45th or so search
-unplug stuff when you’re not using it
-Pick up trash around on streets or bodies of water
-Eat less meat
-Avoid buying stuff with a lot of plastic DON’T BURN PLASTIC
There are plenty more ways you can help, and you can see by doing research. We only have around 3
years before the earth’s temperature rises to a place that we won’t be able to fix. We will lose animals
and our natural resources like water. Natural disasters will become worse, and we won’t be able to
come back from it.
Please help save our planet earth
Is it Cake?
By: Adisyn Gonzales
Is it Cake is a 2022 TV show that was brought to Netflix on March 18th. There is currently one season with a total of 8 episodes all about 35-39 minutes long. As of now it is placed in the top 10 on Netflix as #2 in TV shows today. So, what is it about? Well, you may have a pretty good guess! After, multiple videos swarmed the internet cutting into things that you may have seen as any other object turned out to be a cake, that’s right a cake! Netflix has now taken what was a trend and made it into a TV show. The show consists of many talented bakers who put their skills to the test as they make very realistic cakes which are later judged. The baker who wins at the end could make up to 10,000 dollars with a chance to also compete for 50,000 dollars. This show puts you on the edge wondering what is and isn’t a cake. From the episodes I’ve watched I think this show is really fun and interesting to see.

There was an estimate that 34 people were hacked but 15 of them were false and has all their tokens. Therefore Saturday impacted 17 users of Open Sea, one of the largest NFT marketplaces. Over 250 NFTs were reportedly stolen in the attack, worth at least $1.7 million. Company officials tried to reassure users that it was safe to mint, buy, list, and sell NFTs on Open Sea on Sunday. The attack occurred during Open Sea’s move to its New Wyvern smart contract system, which began on Friday that is set to be completed by February 25. Peck Shield counted 254 tokens stolen over the course of the attack, including tokens from Decentral and and Bored Ape Yacht Club. The small number of targets makes such a threat to come. The attacker tricked the targets into signing an incomplete contract which gave the attacker complete control.
