The time machine

January 31, 2019

There is a corridor that I have walked many times – a hallway that leads me to the past. The walls are covered by a timeless coating of memories printed upon monochrome pages. With every step, I advance deeper into the world of my relatives, watching years of their lives blink past within squared frame...

Divided states of America

Divided states of America

Story by TJ Wall, sports editor

January 30, 2019

It ruins families. It ruins friendships. It causes arguments at the workplace. It surrounds us in everything we do on a daily basis. It’s called politics. We are not supposed to talk about politics at family gatherings and we often remain silent when any discussion that is even semi-political co...

The cycle of addiction

The cycle of addiction

Story by Joseph Asher, staff writer

January 25, 2019

This is the last time. Those five words have been said numerous times by those who ironically have many “last times.” Words that reassure the mind what you’re doing isn’t an issue and you have control over it all, telling yourself that you could stop anytime you wanted. But do you? As teens...

Learning to forgive

Learning to forgive

Story by Cameron Murry, staff writer

January 24, 2019

Breaking a bone hurts. Losing a loved one hurts. But holding a grudge? That leaves an ache so deep you can’t forget it. I don’t come from a happy-go-lucky background of fidelity and support. My parents were separated by the time I was six, and I was switching between custodial hands before I w...

Withdrawals and struggles

Withdrawals and struggles

Story by Cameron Murry, staff writer

January 12, 2019

When you hear that someone is “struggling with drug addiction” or is “having withdrawals,” a negative image often appears in your mind. We picture a shaky, gaunt figure dressed in baggy clothes with a needle in hand. The image of a bubbly, teenage girl doesn’t quite make the cut. Who coul...

The President’s impact

Story by Maddie Anderson, opinion editor

January 9, 2019

In his two years as president, Donald Trump has torn at the fabric of America’s core ideology, making citizens wonder what it means to be an American. He has tugged at the thread that has spun decades of foreign relationships and the idea of the U.S. as global pioneer of culture and politics. Th...

Growing pains

Growing pains

Story by Zane Johnston, staff writer

January 9, 2019

Asking a stranger for the time. Remembering to study for a test. Actually studying for that test. Telling someone how you feel. For many people, these seem absolutely impossible. For others, they are as easy as breathing.  However, the gap between these two lifestyles isn't quite as big as it seems....

December 27, 2018

Be who you want to be. Give back to the community. Express yourself. These were the things I was thinking when I started Bold, an organization to empower young girls to become women. I wanted to create a place where everyone has a voice, including those who don’t want to speak up. Bold is a sisterh...

December 26, 2018

The 14th Amendment has been cited most recently as a response to President Trump’s claims that he can end “birthright citizenship” with an executive order. The 14th Amendment states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of t...

Rights at birth

Rights at birth

Story by Jhovany Perez, editor in chief

December 26, 2018

The stroke of a pen. In his view, that’s all it takes to end the wave of anchor babies. To end the flow of immigrants into this country, as if a stroke of a pen would erect bigger walls to keep them out. As if that stroke would destroy the hope these parents have for their children. On Oct. 31 Presi...

Subject to the jurisdiction of prejudice

December 21, 2018

Every six weeks is like a routine. The newspaper staff goes through our usual process. Sit down. Discuss current events. Decide what issue the students care about. Write and publish a story. And like all issues, forget. But, we can’t forget. How could we when the futures of some of our student body are...
