       Dear Coronavirus, you’re making life hard to live right now. You have not only taken students out of school but have cancelled things that are very dear to them. You have caused isolation over several countries and have left the population to crumble. Everyone only has one question for you...

I woke up to my mother’s voice wishing me a happy birthday. I noticed I obtained more energy than usual because excitement filled me for my long day ahead. I open my phone and read the many texts from friends and family wishing me a happy birthday. I smile as I think about the day ahead, hoping for...

Sitting in bed and laptop out, you’re silently freaking out about how bad you procrastinated. Imagining all the classes you have to hastily finish homework for and study for the numerous tests due to the end of the nine weeks is almost unbearable. What does one do when stressed out and procrastinatin...

Imagine you and your fellow teammates are staying at the school overnight... all of a sudden the police sirens sound and the police charge into your school yelling. This may seem unrealistic but welcome to my Saturday night.  This Saturday the cheerleaders had their annual sleepover at the high schoo...

I’m putting a brave face on but inside my guts feel twisted and my heart is about to jump out of my chest. What is stressing me out might seem silly to others but is a worrisome matter for me: I procrastinated and had to find a dress last minute. The only matter I cared about at that moment was findin...

Extinct: Small Town Pride

Samuel P Miller, Senior Writer

January 28, 2020

An epidemic in our school and our generation is occurring before our eyes. The mentality that we are above what we once conceived normal is destroying the communities we cherish. I’m aware that most of the students at the school believe I obsess my life over the pep club, which might be true, but ...

Remember the Good Ol’ Days?

Bella Panmei, Junior Writer

January 23, 2020

The alarm goes off at 6 a.m. I, a drowsy, little second grader, optimistically ran to the closest window in hopes of snow; the ground danced with snow flurries being harshly blown by violent winds. My wish became a reality. Bianca, my little sister, awoke to me jumping on her bed and dragging her to ...

  As my high school career is coming to an end, I am reminiscing on all of the memories I've made with my friends and family. My least favorite part of my senior year is letting go of all of the sports that I have played my whole life. Letting go of something I love so much brings me hardship...

Chickens weren’t originally domesticated, rather found outside in the wild. People first domesticated chickens around 7000 BC in Chin...

Last Friday the kings played in the Regional Championship game at Andrean Highschool. Unfortunately, the result did not fall in our favor. It was a hard fought game, and we didn’t roll over. The worst part about losing the game is that it was the last time I would ever put on the shoulder pads, helme...
