ASB money is used to benefit the whole school. Well, some of it. Truth is, part of the ASB money, or should I say most of it, is used to pay for sports equipment. I think compared to what clubs get—also known as nothing—is really unequal because the clubs bring more success to this school than sports... Read more »

Even though the controversy hasn’t hit our state as much as it has others, the big problem with teenage girls right now is their right to wear yoga pants and leggings to school. Schools shouldn’t have the right to make this decision. Recently, girls in certain school districts in different areas... Read more »

November 19, 2014

To jailbreak or not to jailbreak, that is the question. The act of jailbreaking gives your iDevice root access, which means that you have the ability to do whatever you want with that device.

Popular fiction generic, uninspired

You’re always reading them, the books where the main character describes themselves as completely ordinary, yet as soon as you start reading you realize they’re the atypical-better-than-you-will-ever-be dreamboat babe, whose intelligent enough to rule the world, athletic enough to beat a Greek god,... Read more »

Horror movies fail to terrify

Sara Koenig, Staff Reporter
October 7, 2014

With them being called horror movies you would expect them to be horrific. But it seems that instead of inspiring terror they make us want to die…of boredom. With a copious amount of gore and a surprising shortage of original ideas, our fearfulness is far past beginning to suffer. Some agree that horror... Read more »

The big 3 ISPs (Internet Service Providers) (Comcast, Verizon, and Time Warner Cable) are in the process of changing the internet for the worst. This will allow ISPs to charge customers for a “fast lane” and a “slow lane.” Essentially this will allow internet providers to monopolize the internet... Read more »

School will come to an end soon and summer vacation will begin! Some students don’t like the break because it’s too long from the school year and they would like to continue learning. Other students like the break because they want to have fun in the sun and hang out with friends. I like summer because... Read more »

Dark Souls 2 lags

June 10, 2014

Dark Souls 2 is a very unpolished game, especially in the multiplayer. It is more broken than the last game, and the lag is even worse. ‘From Software’ made some dumb decisions on how to “balance the game.” In Dark Souls 2, ‘From Software’ introduced two new stats for characters to... Read more »
