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...

  On the first full day of school, there is a mix of emotions hanging over the crowd. The consensus though is that students do not want to be going back to the demanding school day.   Why is it that students are generally not excited to go back to school? Students lose motivation from a...

The confusion everyone felt on the first day of school when they heard the new bell has not completely faded away. It, of course, has caused a few issues throughout the year, but has the change really been all that bad?  The main cause of confusion was the sudden change of the bells from previous years. They came with no announcement, and everyone just had...

Some people do daily mediocre tasks without being able to see clearly. Such as showering, swimming, and basically anything that requires glasses to come off.

Baseball season is upon us, which means bright lights, over-priced concessions, and dirt being blown in your face or staining your nice white shoes. Players have several different traditions, but perhaps the most noticeable tradition is the hair style known as the "Baseball Flow."  The haircut, or lack thereof, called the "Baseball Flow" is where baseball players grow out their hair long enough for it to be noticed i...
