robocop-2014

Director Josè Padilha, that guy that directed those movies you’ve never heard of, has created a remake of a film we’ve all heard of… Robocop. This 2014 rendition stars actor Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy, the only character to make it from the original to the remake… Obviously.

In the spring Arden devotes her time to not only writing but also lacrosse. This upcoming season she will be the team captain. She spends her free time reading, writing, and being with friends. Arden describes herself as being a “media junkie,” since she is online “all the time.”

Hannah Kern

Sue Lamphere

LampherephotoDelOSue grew up in Delaware in the 1970s, when riding your bike without a helmet from one end of town to the other was no big deal. Forty years later she’s come full circle, from the “can’t wait to get out Dodge” days of her youth, to the “can’t wait to move back home” feelings that brought her back to Delaware from Indianapolis in 2007. She works locally, but enjoys leaving the desk behind and exploring back roads, parks, and random destinations. When not spending time with friends and family, she enjoys reading, volunteering, walking, and dabbling in creative endeavors.
