The Downey Legend

As a returning Downey Legend news staff member, Alexis Gutierrez, 12, plans to expose more of what Downey High School has to offer. “I returned to newspaper because explaining new aspects of school life has really put me out there,” Gutierrez said. “I can't wait to continue discovering downey's little stories.”  


When I first met Alexis Gutierrez we did not get along whatsoever. We share the same opinions, but for the most part we are very different people. In the beginning we constantly argued in a manner that was not friendly at all. We would constantly get on eachothers nerves to the point where I think both of us would get irritated solely by looking at the others face. However, as time passed by we slowly—and I mean very slowly—developed a friendship. Alexis may be very opinionated and outspoken, but I’ve learned to appreciate her for it. Plus we have pretty much all the same opinions so that helps. As opposed to myself Alexis takes pride in her work and puts forth all her effort to do a great job. She has no fear in sharing her opinions and voicing her concerns which really impresses me. She can easily accomplish any task put in front of her and I have no doubt in her ability to accomplish any goal of hers. I consider Alexis a vital part of The Downey Legend and I am grateful for all the arguments we’ve had so far. Alexis Gutierrez is as corny as it sounds an independent and candid person who can do most if not all things she sets her mind to. She also never failed to call me out on my malarkey, so she should be thanked for that.

Barnes and Cheyenne have not been working with each other for a long time, but they built a strong relationship and work well together. “I’ve only been caring for Cheyenne for about 2 1/2 weeks, but I have her at the most important stage where she is learning to hunt,” Barnes stated. “I will only have her for a few more weeks until I get my other bread bag.”
