Picture this: me, in my 2001 Chevy Cavalier driving from my house to the school. There’s really nothing extraordinary about this morning; I’m not running late or anything. The new Lady Antebellum album is playing, maybe a little louder than necessary. Oh, a red light. I stop. Easy enough, right?...

Dieser Kuchen ist köstlich! For those of you who have to use google translate like I do, you most likely do not know the meaning of this german phrase, which means “This cake is delicious”! This week I decided to make the big kahuna, (aka a german chocolate cake). I hold this recipe very near...

How many times have you complained about being too cold in school today? In the last week? In the last month? The answer is probably too many to count. You probably believe the school temperature should be changed, because it’s a distraction to your learning and you’re simply uncomfortable in class...

A few months ago, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a seemingly shocking fact. According to Psychology Today, “the average high school kid today has the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient in the early 1950s.” Now, many adults who do not have consistent contact...

You wake up on Christmas morning with excitement filling the air. But that's not the only thing filling the atmosphere. Cinnamon rolls are baking in the oven, consuming the house with a cozy cinnamon and bread-dough aroma. How could life get any better than this? Now, I know what you're...

You’re next up in the lunch line. Today’s your favorite: cheeseburgers and french fries. The only drawback, however, is that you’re not a giant fan of processed cheese or sweet potato fries, yet they get piled onto your tray regardless. A lot of people may have never stepped back and thought...

One Saturday morning, on the way to work, I decided to get a little pick-me-up at Starbucks. I ordered a coffee in the drive-thru, then got my debit card out of my wallet to pay for my large white chocolate mocha. The man in front of me was taking longer than usual, and I saw him point his thumb towards...

Class rank should be optional

Filed under Opinion

In the quantitative society we live in, class rank seems to fit right in. Without taking an in-depth look, it sounds like a good idea. We can view a student compared to their peers, and then make a decision on how talented or hardworking a student is. It provides a look into how well a student does in...

Fall is officially in full bloom! The orange, red and yellow foliage, along with the crisp coolness in the air, make me want to curl up on the couch, watching my favorite Halloween movies, Halloweentown and Hocus Pocus. Yes, Halloweentown is cheesy, but in my book it is nothing less than a classic. Another...

Many students who arrive early Friday mornings may notice the glaring absence of what should have been a school staple: doughnuts. In September, during late start Friday mornings, FCCLA started selling doughnuts for $1 per doughnut. The student response was overwhelming. Every week the organization...

The Maze Runner Review

October 22, 2014


Filed under Opinion

“The Maze Runner” is a fast-paced, action-packed dystopian movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat, but deviates heavily from the novel it was adapted from. Based on the novel by James Dashner, the movie follows a group of teenage boys trapped within a maze, with no memory of who they are...

New year. New look. New feel. To go with the saying “variety is the spice of life,” the staff decided to redesign the newspaper. As a senior, I want to leave my mark on the school and community. My hope is that the new design of the newspaper will be a standard for the coming years, with future...
