Men and women standing outside of stores ringing bells, children’s names hanging on Christmas trees, piles of canned goods stacked at the local food bank – all symbols of goodwill that seems to pour out during the holiday season.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

Scorpions falling from the sky, fire coming from the surface of the earth, buildings and bridges collapsing, dead animals on the streets, humans eating humans, earthquakes every hour, tsunamis engulfing islands, cars falling through cracks in the streets and down to the center of the scorching earth to be burned, with no mercy on the lives of all 6 billion people living on this planet.

Family unscathed by opinions, basks in popularity created by show

Like it or not: we’ve all heard of, and most of us have even watched TLC’s hit show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

The reality show follows Toddlers and Tiaras star Alana Thompson in her daily life, which some regard as entertainment while others deem to be – well, repulsive. The Thompson family’s everyday activities – such as fixing roadkill for dinner, washing their hair in the sink, and playing the “guess who’s breath” game give viewers a look behind the scenes at the odd life of the young pageant queen, with a lot of laughs along the way.

Stepping out of your musical comfort zone

College a time for new experiences, not more of the same

The past 12 years of school have led us to this moment: your senior year. The days of naptime are long gone, and soon we wave goodbye to the familiar friday night lights. The next steps will most likely determine the course of our lives, or so we are told. But how are we supposed to jump into the ‘real world’? The possibility of college is daunting enough, but the possibility of leaving home, our hometown, or even the state does not come without fear or apprehension.

There is an ‘I’ in swimming: Self-reliance, determination, individualism prosper through sport

Swimming: a self-motivated, individual sport where one’s performance is based solely on their mindset and work ethic.

Expanding minds through expanded boarders

Most would say that people can only set life goals when they’re still young. Others, however, are still setting goals and have dreams to do bigger and better things even after they’ve figured out what occupation they want pursue. For English teacher Megan Black, these goals extend beyond borders of being a high school teacher.

As I walked into school, starting the tenth grade with nerves on edge, I noticed how many people were in the cafeteria. Then I saw the differences; a new principal, televisions in the cafeteria, and even more would be revealed later.

Principles, standard raised with new principal

“A hero is a person who helps someone else. He is always there for me. He never lets me down.” In the eyes of a child, few things mean more to them than their hero. Principal Lamond Dean’s son’s hero wasn’t Superman or Spiderman, but rather his own father.

School introduces plan allowing students to bring their own devices
