A single mother is living paycheck-to-paycheck because her minimum wage paying job is only paying $7.25 per hour. Should people really have to live this way, or should the minimum wage be raised? Personally, I believe the minimum wage shouldn’t be raised due to the effects it will cause on society. A...

Tests help guarantee the placing of a student in class and what they are capable of, but almost nobody is a fan of taking any sort of test and studying for it is even worse.Taking tests for classes are normal and students have time t...

Not many people sit around and think about what makes the work unique. Our world is the way it is due to God’s grandeur. This subject is spoken about all the time due to younger kids asking so many questions about how the world lives as one. In “God’s Grandeur” by Gerald Manley Hopkins, he st...

David, I wrote the our sisters one of these when I first started writing for the Kings’ Courier, so I found it appropriate to write you one while my days writing for the Kings’ Courier are coming to an end. I know we often don’t get along, but what siblings get along all the time? All that ...

This is for the people who think they are alone, for the ones who think nobody understands, and for the ones that seem to be unheard in a crowd full of people. No, this is not a pity party or a story looking for attention. This is simply me using my abilities for the better.   I understand that...

As people go about living their everyday lives, some forget ‘God’s Grandeur’ as poet Gerald Manley Hopkins points out. Everyone sees life through only his own eyes, not through the beauty of others. We seem to take advantage of the gift that God has given us: someone who cares. If people look past...

For the most part, every family has their own kind of family reunion every year or every couple years. For my dad’s Woolever/Spitznogle side of the family, this is an every year occurrence and it is always the ‘Spitznogle Christmas.’ I can’t remember a year when there wasn’t a Spitznogle Chr...
