The earth is gone, they say... there is nothing left. The scientists said this would happen. We kept things the same, we refused to change. In history class, we learn about animals and glaciers. We wear masks that teach us to breathe CO2. Dinosaurs never existed; there is no proof. Beaches are prohib...

“Dianne.” His voice sent a sharp prick up my spine, but somehow it felt right. “Father.” Hearing his voice lit my heart on fire, like the revival of a flame that had been smoldering for years. We stood there for a few moments, the door slowly creaking back and forth on its hinges...

“Oh my goodness Jade!” said Tooki. “You are a genius! This is the most amazing thing I have ever seen!” I blushed in pride and embarrassment. I looked at my creation and I did feel like this was a piece that deserved to be called amazing. But me being a genius well... I d...

Energy Profiling: The Personality System That Revolutionized My Family

Liliana Owen, Journalist

October 22, 2019

About four years ago, my family was kind of a mess. We weren’t very nice and understanding of each other, and we were being pushed to do stuff that was not very accepting of ourselves. Quite frankly, I did not love myself very much and did not accept my personality. I was constantly being pushed to be that social butterfly, the one that is friends with everyone. At that time, I had almost no friends. Social events were torture. I felt so left out, so alone, so unwanted by my peers. Then it all changed when my mom discovered and introduced my five siblings and me to Energy Profiling, a personality system created by Carol Tuttle.

The full moon lights the walkway to my home as I quietly but quickly make my way to the front door. All the lights are off, which is normal enough in my house at midnight, but something doesn’t quite feel right. Or maybe it’s just the full moon in the sky? I’m a rather superstitious person. I open the door, and step inside. The moonlight does not seep through the thick curtains, and in the pitch blackness, I see nothing. I flip the switch and pull off my shoes, giving my tired feet a break. Then I notice the person standing in the doorway between the living room and the dining room. I jump and frown. How did he get there? Who let him in?

The Importance Of Sleep

The Importance Of Sleep

Olivia Harris, Journalist

Today, people seem to have less time than ever before. Young people in particular lead very busy lives. When attempting to juggle education, social events, sports, and various other activities, sleep often gets put on a back burner. Many people feel that they just don’t have enough time to get the...

“Why do you fear the stars?” my best friend asked with an interested smile. We sat on my favorite hill looking at the night sky. It was a little cold. I looked her in the face and asked, “Why do you ask?” She responded, “I see you come to this hill often and look in the sky with fear in your...

TBG: What was your favorite place city to visit? Ethan Cannon: They were all amazing, but my favorite was probably Antequera, since we got to go to El Torcal and see the amazing rock formations there. Gibraltar was a close second because we got to see (and even hold!) the macaques monkeys that live there.

Gun Control: The REAL Problem

Gun Control: The REAL Problem

Treysen Anderson, Guest Writer

Alright. I’ll humor you. Let’s say it is the fault of the guns that these people are being murdered. From mass school shootings to gang brawls to hate deaths, in all of these cases the guns can and should be blamed for the bloodshed. After all, 14,000 people were killed in gun related incidents last year. Let us restrict, establish gun-free zones against, and even ban guns. And, following this same principle, all road fatalities brought to pass by texting and driving can and should be blamed on the phone. 40,000 people were killed by car wrecks, and roughly half of those were caused by phones, leading to a grand total of 20,000 deaths due to phones. However, in these cases, the phone is merely ignored and we continue on, warning and encouraging our communities to use their phones wisely, when we all know that phones should be restricted and we should establish phone-free zones to protect our citizens.
