Revolution, Part One: My Epiphany

Revolution, Part One: My Epiphany

Liliana Owen, Journalist

February 6, 2020

I had the most ridiculous epiphany when I was about seven. I remember the moment as if it was crystallized in time. As if it was yesterday. I was laying in my bed —I had the top in a bunk bed. I was in the bedroom that my sister now has for her own. The wall color, if I remember co...

Representing America

Representing America

Eric Riddle, Journalist

February 6, 2020

America, the land of promise, was built by men and women seeking refuge from unjust systems of government. They formed their ideal government and it has stood longer than anyone expected. The reason for this is because America is a representative government. This means that we are the people mak...

Les Miserables: Is It Worth It?

Les Miserables: Is It Worth It?

Liliana Owen, Journalist

November 25, 2019

Imagine a man, a holy priest, who has done nothing but good in his life. One day a criminal comes along and asks to stay the night. Being the good man that he was, he said yes. But when morning came, the man was gone, taking with him the priest’s most prized possessions: a silver tableware set, his last worldly treasure. The criminal was caught by the police and dragged back, where the priest was asked to confirm the man’s claim that it had been a gift. What does the priest do? Does he tell the truth and send the man to prison for life, or tell a lie and let the criminal go free, giving him a second chance at life?

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...

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.

Gun Control: The REAL Problem

Gun Control: The REAL Problem

Treysen Anderson, Guest Writer

October 8, 2019

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.

Shark Attack? Or Human Attack?

A.M Gilbert, Journalist

Many people believe that sharks are vicious predators that eat people at random and are a real threat we should be scared of every time we swim in the ocean. Rumours have been spread about how sharks kill hundreds of people each year. No matter how you look at it, sharks seem to be held as evil creatures ...

Farewell to Mr. Reynolds: Quiet Confident Optimism

Sophie S., Journalist

May 2, 2019

We sit in classrooms, not the conventual sense, but through the highly debated blackboard and zoom rooms. From the outside, it may seem like a guarded way of learning, but our mentors have cultivated an environment where students are proud to speak on behalf of their beliefs. Mr. Reynolds didn’t...
