Whether it’s their first or last prom, people look forward to the dance for months. The excitement of getting ready, finding the perfect outfit, making plans for dinner and pictures. Everyone can’t wait for the event of the year.  But then they arrive.   As soon as they enter the building, it’s complai...

Money Can’t Buy a GPA

OPINION BY Vincent Lin, Staff Writer

April 30, 2019


Filed under News Briefs, Opinion, Showcase, Student Life

Money alone won’t lead you to success. It sure helps in getting a head start though.  This was the sort of doctrine that several wealthy families across the United States held in previous months. In March 2019, around fifty business leaders, coaches, administrators, celebrities, and parents were charged for scandalous...

In what feels like centuries ago, bathrooms were a public place where toilets could be used and hands could be washed in peace. This use of the room is rare nowadays, as a new primary use for the area has gained popularity. “Juuling." Juuls are a type of e-cigarette that are marketed as th...

“Alita: Battle Angel” tells the story of a robot dug up in a garbage heap that discovers a strange and hostile new world in the form of Iron City, or at least that’s the story it attempts to tell. 20th Century Fox saw fit to give this film a 200-million-dollar budget to Robert Rodriguez, or as you may ...

It’s Sunday night and you didn’t do any of your homework, so you wait for the snow storm to pass through tonight, hoping it’s enough to call off school. Your Twitter feed is filled with students harassing Dr. Rikli into giving us yet another snow day.  Dr. Rikli and the other superintendents get pressured ...

School sports tryouts are usually used to weed out the less experienced players and set different teams. For girls, however, the former is not a common practice.  Girls sports have been overflowing with players for year, yet the coaches cannot do anything about it. PLHS has long had a precedent that coaches are not allowed to cut fem...

Starting a conversation about suicide is just as hard as starting an article on it. The only time when we are allowed to talk about suicide is when someone has already taken their life. It’s disappointing that the death of someone loved by many is what is required for society to sit down to have...

When I first saw the trailer for the movie “Love, Simon,” I was so happy I couldn’t help but giggle. I remember going to the movies and having my mind blown at the fact that a gay character was the lead in a blockbuster movie, especially when the primary focus of the story was the main character questioning his...

Opinion: Best Year of High School

OPINION BY Lily Allpress, Assistant Editor-In-Chief

February 12, 2019


Filed under Entertainment, Features, Opinion, Showcase, Student Life

Ah, high school, the “best” years of our lives...supposedly. The four years we spend in this building change us, usually for the better, but, out of all the four years, which one is truly the best? Freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior year?   The angst that fills these walls is sometimes overpowering, the different age groups mingling and becoming friends. All the non-seniors f...

It’s officially 2019, and although 2018 may be over, the trends are never ending. We started the year off with the world record egg that went viral in less than the first 20 days of the new year. With over 50 million likes, the egg dominates the previously most liked picture on Instagram, which...

Valentine’s Day: Is It a Corporate Holiday?

Valentine’s Day: Is It a Corporate Holiday?

OPINION BY: Lily Allpress, Assistant Editor-in-Chief of PLPulse

January 31, 2019


Filed under Entertainment, Features, Opinion, Showcase, Student Life

 Where the heck did Valentine’s Day come from? The holiday of “love” seemingly came out of nowhere with its heart boxes filled with chocolates, flowers, and expensive gifts. People spend so much money on a random holiday for “love," but is there really a meaning behind it besides the overhan...
