“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 ...

Perhaps, as of late, sports bars have earned a bad rap, what with the whole ‘dudebro’ stereotype and all its drunken glory being associated with the patronage of these establishments, but maybe in our haste to condemn their exaggerated movie portrayals, we were too quick to judge their true character. Mayb...

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...

Its chimes are welcoming, and they are the gateway to a quiet coffee shop tucked in the end of the small strip of stores that lies on the northwest corner of 72nd and Giles streets.  This cozy store opened just over a year ago and...

The people we pass by on the street are generally strangers; strangers that we normally do not think twice about. Usually, we cannot even remember the face of one from just a few days ago, but regardless, all strangers have histories.   When almost fifteen percent of the US population consists of immigrants, you are bound to come across someon...

Across from the north gym, next to the bench many students sit on daily, hangs a plaque with the words “Papillion-La Vista High School class of 1972 and Nebraska’s first 7’ High School Basketball Player." Students walk past it daily; some notice it, but most do not. However, the story behind the...

Most things in people’s lives are taken for granted while they are there: food, clothes, water, shelter. But once they are taken away, they are dearly missed. Some items are hardly even thought about, but leave a deep impact when they’re gone.  The Monarchs for Social Justice club is holding a paper drive this week to get toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, and tissues for...
