A tick is a parasite. It clings onto its host and suckles until they implode from their own gluteny. Normally, the hosts despise these vile creatures that can only survive on their blood; however, Elsworth Toohey loves needy, tick-like parasites that cling to his name and influence. The feeling of s...

Are you Christmasing to Early?

Are you Christmasing to Early?

Cayl Garland, Senior Writer

November 15, 2019

It’s only the second week in November and people already have their Christmas trees up. Don’t get me wrong. I love Christmas just as much as the next person, but this an outrage. Why would some people put up their christmas tree this early? Who wants to skip over Thanksgiving? Some people go as far as puttin...

Wayne Gretski famously said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” This quote is especially true and hits home with our girls basketball team. The Lady Kings are sporting one of the worst losing streaks in the state with 19 losses and a record of 1-22 last season. However, the tide seems...

I Am Who I Say I Am

Samuel P Miller, Senior Writer

October 27, 2019

I am who I say I am.    Social media is a powerful tool and can cause chaos with a click of a button. This was proven over the weekend when I said, “Sportsmanship has a face, and it’s not mine.” For the unfamiliar onlooker this might seem crass and unnecessary. With reflection, I mig...

Complaining is something almost everyone does regularly. Whether it is going to school, having too much homework, playing against a really good sports team, or something as simple as having a hard practice, complaining is such an easy subject to fill our mouths with. As popular as complaining is, some...

Nifty Thrifty Thrifter

Hannah Plauschin, Sophomore Writer

October 11, 2019

I have been thrifting clothes for a long time, and I would even say that 80% of my clothes are thrifted. I know some people think thrifting means buying one-of-a-kind vintage clothing for large amounts of money at expensive thrift shops. I, however, do not thrift that way. Thrifting can mean buying ...

Gender Equality

Bella Panmei, Junior Writer

October 2, 2019

We have all experienced that time in elementary when a teacher would ask for two to three “strong” boys to help carry some items but never the GIRLS. Being a girl, nobody would ever look my way if they needed some heavy lifting done. Even though I look tiny, I can still carry the amount of materia...

What is this legacy turning into?

September 26, 2019

Toy Story 4 was one of the most anticipated Disney movies of the year. It was supposed to end the franchise in a huge way, but I thought the movie was very disappointing. The movie didn’t really end the franchise, it just moved in a different direction. The movie just didn’t live up to the hype. ...

Cheating is something almost everyone has done at least once or twice. It is a common thing, but why do people do it? Cheating is something constantly talked about in the school system. Cheating has always been around, but recently, more and more students are taking part in it. It is always depicted in...
