Righetti High School Magazine ‘The Legend’ Goes Online

A Righetti High School publication that is capturing the lifestyles and activities of students is now available online for free.

The RHS magazine, The Legend, made its cyberspace debut a few weeks ago. More than 20 students and adviser Robert Garcia plan to complete five or six issues this year.

The students’ news gathering efforts have sparked many conversations about the way students dance, bullying, parent relationships, a closed campus and other topics.

“I want their work to show people what they’re capable of doing,” Garcia said. “The more exposure they receive, the more chances for opportunities later after high school.’‘

The publication features a fine selection of photographs, sports coverage and even personal perspectives from foreign exchange students. The magazine is also available in print. Several hundred copies are tentatively planned for next year because of rising costs.

RHS Legend staff member and student Iliana Gutierrez said the online opportunity has reached many more students and nonstudents than they ever expected.

“We’ve gotten responses from a former teacher, San Francisco and as far away as Germany,” Gutierrez said. “These people are all over the world.’‘

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
