“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 ...

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...

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...

 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...

It is the day after Halloween, and Christmas music is playing on the radio while pine trees erupt in every corner of Target and Hobby Lobby.   The earlier that Christmas decorations come out, the more Thanksgiving is erased. Not to mention, the lack of patience for the holidays has caused th...

There’s always that one hallway in the school where no one moves for a good, solid minute, and it’s caused by a common factor: freshmen. They are always in everyone’s way, and it can get really irritating. But everyone's been a freshman; everyone has been just as bad as it is now. Upperclassmen, such as sophomore Trystan Wahl, stru...
