As the annual SADD dance occurred this past Saturday, it got me thinking about how my senior year is coming close to an end. I didn’t really think about it too much before SADD as I was just enjoying my senior year. I didn’t realize how close it was to being over until now. I’ve experienced many la...

Politeness: An Important Virtue

Westin Miller, Senior Writer

February 20, 2018


Filed under Opinion

When you are a child, most parents will teach you how to be polite.  They will tell you how to behave around strangers, how to act at the table while eating, and how to act when with family.  Being an important virtue of a person’s life, politeness is needed in the world.  Without it, a person w...

The first substantial book that I ever read was Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I didn’t start on the first book in the series because I wanted reading points and this book had the most out of any in the library. I know starting more than halfway into a book series doesn’t make the most sen...

Filed under Courier Top Opinion Article, Opinion

Let me just start this off by saying that I was never one who liked to read. In elementary school we had to read simple books that took little to no comprehension after one read the words off a page. This type of reading never really sparked my interest at a young age. I found it to be somewhat borin...

Growing up I was always an avid reader. Unlike many of my peers, I actually enjoyed to read. I would read a book from any genre ranging from romance to science fiction to determine which I liked the best. However, as soon as I picked up Harry Potter for the first time, I knew I would be hooked on fantas...

Have You Ever Tried To Stop Thinking?

Filed under Courier Top Opinion Article, Opinion

Have you ever sat down, cleared your mind, and just tried to stop all thought? As simple as this task seems, it would be very hard to stop your mind from thinking. Personally, I have tried this on many occasions, and I have always wondered if it were possible at all. The concept of not thinking seems f...

People ban books because of morals, religion, sexual content, language, or political reasons. However, often times deeper meanings exist behind banned books. Books can make someone cry, reunite with a lover, or in extreme cases kill another person. The impact a book can have is huge, and that is why s...

Despite their only losses to Tennessee, Western Kentucky, and Ohio State, the Purdue Boilermakers may finally have a shot at winning the NCAA tournament. As a Purdue fan I believe this has been long overdue. The one and only time Purdue claimed the title “National Champions” it was given to them by the Hel...

To The One Who Never Said Goodbye,   I don’t know if you realize it or not but you went about this all completely wrong. You shouldn’t have left things the way you did. You thought not saying goodbye would make things all easier, but it didn’t if anything it made things worse.  ...

Firearms: A Major Part of My Life

Westin Miller, Senior Writer

February 2, 2018


Filed under Courier Top Opinion Article, Opinion

When I was a child, I had no knowledge or interest of firearms and how they functioned.  My main focus was what toy do I want to play with today or what is there to watch on the television.  Even though I enjoyed playing and watching cartoons, it all changed on my eighth birthday. This birthday is wher...

Voters nowadays differ widely from one another as compared to the past where only white, landowning males could vote. Each person of each ethnicity, age, and background has his or her specific reasons for why they do or do not vote and whom they vote for. I have reasons for why I want to vote, but not...
