Meet the new Editor-in-Chief of “Live Wire”

By Danielle Shaver, Editor-in-Chief I am enter­ing into my fourth semes­ter at Har­ris­burg Area Com­mu­nity Col­lege (HACC). I am attend­ing classes at both the Lan­caster and Har­ris­burg cam­puses because not all courses for my major are offered at Lan­caster.

Superhero themed HACCFest was a great time for all

by Robert Beiler, Man­ag­ing Editor There are so many amaz­ing things to say this year about HAC­CFest, the annual event at Har­ris­burg Area Com­mu­nity College’s (HACC) Lan­caster Cam­pus. Between what appeared to be an amaz­ing turn out from the stu­dents as well as a wide range of options offered by the Stu­dent Gov­ern­ment Asso­ci­a­tion (SGA)

Super Smash Brothers for the Nintendo 3DS Preview

Photo via Forbes

By Nick Hughes, Con­tribut­ing Writer

On Octo­ber third this year Super Smash Broth­ers will be released for the Nin­tendo 3DS. As a result of a pro­mo­tion by Nin­tendo via their Club Nin­tendo I was able to get a down­load code for the games demo. With a con­firmed ros­ter of 48 char­ac­ters to choose from the demo only allowed selec­tion of five char­ac­ters. Those being Mario from the Super Mario Broth­ers series, Link from The Leg­end of Zelda, and Pikachu from the Poké­mon Series. These three are return­ing char­ac­ters. The two new char­ac­ters to the ros­ter include Mega­man from the Mega­man series and The Vil­lager from Ani­mal Cross­ing. Although there were only five char­ac­ters out of the 48 I have at least five hours invested in the demo. I was very impressed with the game as a whole. The com­bat was very fluid and extremely fun. All five char­ac­ters move sets were well done; espe­cially the two new­com­ers to the series. Mega­man and the Vil­lager. It took a lot of time to under­stand the Vil­lagers move set, but after a lit­tle bit of play­ing it becomes clear that the vil­lager is quite the char­ac­ter. As a side note, the Vil­lagers life­less eyes left me feel­ing a bit unsettled.

Vinyl is making a comeback at Mr. Suit Records

by Tucker Leighty-Phillips, Con­tribut­ing Writer

We live in a technology-driven world. The twenty-first cen­tury has seen peo­ple watch­ing all day press con­fer­ences for new com­put­ers, school chil­dren receiv­ing tablets for Christ­mas as opposed to toys, even shop­pers pulling out their camp­ing gear to go wait in line for the newest phone to be released. How­ever, in this new, high-tech soci­ety, there is one anti­quated piece of tech­nol­ogy that seems to be on the upswing — the vinyl record.

Vicki Van Hise wants to help student succeed

Vicki Van Hise sits at her desk.

by Robert Beiler, Man­ag­ing Editor

Vicki Van Hise has seen a broad range of Amer­ica per­sonal and pro­fes­sional life. The New Jer­sey native is the Dis­abil­ity Coor­di­na­tor at Har­ris­burg Area Com­mu­nity Col­lege (HACC), which over­sees stu­dents with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties to help them suc­ceed in their time with the col­lege. She has been in the posi­tion since 2010 when she started work­ing with HACC. Hail­ing from a small farm-centric town near the New Jersey/New York bor­der, Van Hise speaks of a town much smaller than Lan­caster. One where “every­body knew each other” or in some cases was even a rel­a­tive. While pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tions of her fam­ily had been farm­ers, her par­ents chose a dif­fer­ent path for their pro­fes­sional careers. A desire for a change of scenery how­ever prompted Van Hise to attend col­lege at Seat­tle Pacific Uni­ver­sity in Seat­tle, Wash­ing­ton. She then remained there for eleven more years after grad­u­at­ing with a bachelor’s degree in Fam­ily Stud­ies and work­ing as a pro­fes­sional in “cor­po­rate land” as she calls it.

Unhung Hero’ asks the tough questions

Patrick Moote, star of the film.

by Jared Sul­li­van – Con­tribut­ing Writer

Imag­ine that you are a col­lege stu­dent at a Uni­ver­sity with a major sta­dium for foot­ball games. You have per­son­ally arranged to be put on the kiss cam­era so that you could pro­pose to your girl­friend and because it is such a pro­found foot­ball school is humil­i­ated at least in front of 30,000 peo­ple. Then, to make things worse, your rejec­tion is put on YouTube by some­one record­ing it. Within four days it hits ten mil­lion views. That would be pretty harsh. What if the num­ber one answer as to why you were rejected is because you have too small of a penis?

Chicks dig Live Wire’s new Managing Editor

Robert Beiler, Managing Editor

By Robert Beiler, Man­ag­ing Editor

Tell me to write an arti­cle about polit­i­cal posi­tions and I could have it done no prob­lem. Tell me to write about myself and sud­denly I’m at a loss. Where do I begin? Do peo­ple care that I am a Lan­caster native? Is it impor­tant for them to know I’ve been to a Star Trek con­ven­tion? Does my time at Har­ris­burg Area Com­mu­nity Col­lege mat­ter to the reader? Per­haps not, we shall see. I am how­ever the new man­ag­ing edi­tor for Live Wire so we can start there. I’ve been with Live Wire for over a year, com­ing up on two. As the semes­ters change we see peo­ple come and go as they do with com­mu­nity col­leges. Each one brings some­thing new to the table, leaves a mark in some way. It’s been fun so far.
