The Biz with Liz

Elizabeth Hankins, Entertainment Editor

April 3, 2011

I remember kindergarden. When everything was simple and there was naptime and my biggest worry was if someone would take the toy I wanted to play with. Boys had cooties and toys were gold. Kindergarden was a great time. No one had to grow up and face the world. Now I'm older and things are changing,...

April 3, 2011

Choosing certain classes for the following year is the last thing on some people’s minds, but for me it’s stressful. Finally, when everything seems to be right March comes soon enough. With March comes decisions and responsibilities because it’s time for CAP (Career Action Plan). Going through...

Sharing Thoughts with Sara

Sara Lachance, Reporter

April 3, 2011

When most people think of the word "home," they think of a house with comfy furniture, a place full of warmth in the winter and nice, cold air in the summer.  But my home isn't made of bricks nor wood, and it doesn't have a roof or any walls.  My home is the soccer field.  The soccer field, for me,...

“In the know” with Joe

Joseph Jordan, News Editor

March 17, 2011

I imagine myself on my deathbed, looking back at the life I’ve lived, wishing with every fiber of my being that I could go back to when I was young, wishing I could change this very moment, and truly live for something.  Now is my chance, I won’t get  to go back. We get around 80 or so years...

Making Minutes Matter

Ben Burns, Opinions Editor

March 8, 2011

The clock hangs above the door each and every classroom. The same black numbers on a white background are present on each clock. The hands of the clocks slowly move over each number from one to twelve over and over. Each turn signifies one minute. Each rotation of the clock passes the time a teacher...

Gas prices reach record highs

Hannah Blakely, Features Editor

March 7, 2011

Every time I go to the pump to pay for my gas I am astounded it costs well over $60 to fill my 15 gallon car.  I start reconsidering going to places, and I stop spending my money on other things.  I stay at home and feed less money into the economy.  This is not only my problem but the problem for ...

Hanging out with Hannah

March 1, 2011

The windows were rolled down, but that could not cool the heat rising in my cheeks as I began to blush.  He had is arm around my shoulder and he was singing "Brick House" to me in between my bursts of laughter.  I felt happy sitting in his passenger seat as he drove me home from playing frisbee. ...

Tiffany Bounkhong, Co-Editor

March 1, 2011

I turn to the clock and the red LCD lights flash 2:00 a.m. I have yet to fall asleep. I rest my head on my pillow and have laid awake enveloped in my comforting sheets.  Thoughts constantly invade my mind. I'm constantly second guessing myself. I'm constantly questioning myself. Did I do the...

Growing up, I did a couple pageants, one when I was six and another one when I was about ten.  For me, it was just a day when I got to look extra pretty, but nothing out of the ordinary. It wasn't until this past Saturday that I really experienced the smell of hairspray and desperation in a beauty...
