The Arkansas baseball team has been recognized as one of the elite programs in the country over the last 8 years. They have been consistently inside the top 25 and have even spent some time as number one in the nation over this time.  The team is expected to continue playing competitively, but the Razorbacks are in the midst...

Music has lost its meaning

Back in the day a performance qualified as someone walking on stage and bearing their soul. It was about the music, and it was about the talent. Now an artist qualifies as someone who is so bizarre, so outgoing, so appealing they can sell anything. Lately the music industry has been lacking in real talent. Many artists are...

Jan. 24, my lifelong dream came true. I was headed to the gym when my cell phone buzzed with an email.  I almost didn’t check it because usually it was nothing more than junk mail, but for whatever reason I decided to check it. My stomach dropped like I was on the world’s largest roller coaster when I saw who it was...

There’s an app for everything

From apps about how to kiss to apps dealing with the weather, there seems to be an app for everything these days.  Some may see this as a bad thing, but I believe that having an app for everything is a useful tool and helps our continuously changing culture. With new technology comes new problems.  Texting causes problems...

Bieber and Gomez’s “steamy” vacation

Hannah Blakely, Features editor

January 30, 2011

When I hear the term a "steamy" relationship, I normally picture a scene in "The Titanic."  In this scene Jack and Rose are running through the engine room, and they find a car where they have a romantic encounter.  This is my personal definition of a steamy relationship, so when I saw a headline on a magazine cover that called...

Talk of decreasing the Arkansas lottery scholarship has been brought up by the legislative committee that oversees the money. The cut is to affect future recipients of the lottery scholarship.

The reality of ‘The Bachelor’

Ben Burns, Opinions editor

January 23, 2011

Filed under Opinion

The Bachelor is a typical reality show. Nothing close to reality. It features overly expensive dates, breathtaking venues, romantic sunsets, and the absence of all things real. The real world we all live in is nearly absent from this over-dramatized version of the search for love. The search for love is an age old quest...

Miley Cyrus turned 18 on Nov. 23.  On Nov. 24, the teen sensation posed nude for Playboy. Cyrus' decision to pose nude is just one of the many things that has kept her in the light of controversy for some time now.  Her scandalous music video for the song "Can't Be Tamed," her semi-nude photo shoot for the magazine Vanity...

Last week a new monitoring system was placed in Officer Wooten’s office. The new system allows Wooten to view a live feed of what is going on in the school. These new monitors are great, but cameras aren’t the answer to our safety. They can show what is going on around the school but it doesn’t prevent intruders from...

T wo years ago my cousins and I conceived an idea that was crazier than anything we have every done. It was an idea so bizarre, I can’t even believe I was apart of it. It was Christmas break and I was visiting my cousins in Hydro, Oklahoma. I’ll be the first person to say that Hydro has absolutely nothing to do. It...

What is a true hero?

Filed under Opinion

In a self-centered world where we are so focused on ourselves and what we can “get out of ” things, truly selfless acts are rare.  So many times we see problems, but we choose to ignore them because it’s simply too much hastle.  And besides “someone else will fix it.”  We use this same excuse when we see people...
