District Champs [Poetry]

The game begins We’re full of school spirit We yell and cheer Till the whole world can hear it We continue to play We’re falling behind We wish we could put the clock on rewind It’s halftime and we’re losing 24 to 7 The whole team prays to God up in heaven We come back […]

Through the looking glass: Teacher uses photography to introduce students to wonderland of creativity, success

A lot more than an image can be captured through the lens of a camera. A glimpse of human interaction can be frozen, a memory can be saved. A photographer is taught to pay attention to detail, to step away from a scene to catch the bigger picture, and how beauty is found in unexpected places. Photography teacher John Burrows teaches students not only how to search for these hidden meanings, but also how to find their own passion and spirit through learning. Because he struggled with school, Burrows’ goal is to make learning relatable and interactive for his students so that education isn’t as intimidating.

Good Things – November 2014

2014_11 Good Things

Not everything goes: Florida Georgia Line’s new album proves duo the Nickelback of country music

It may seem premature to declare the worst album of 2014 while it’s only November, but this year I make an exception for Florida Georgia Line’s Anything Goes. Florida Georgia Line is a country duo from Nashville that specializes in a newer breed of country music. Coined in 2013 by Jody Rosen as “Bro-country”, this frankenstein of a genre is the sour mixture of hip-hop, pop, rock, and whatever’s left of country music as each of the contending genres stir together a repulsive witches pot of terribleness.

Sibling Emptinester: Learning to deal with older siblings absence highlights importance of relationship

From fighting to loving, making memories to making each other cry, the love/hate relationship amongst siblings is a powerful thing.

Vikings forge hammer, create symbol of pride

Thor’s hammer is a mythological weapon, said to have been wielded by the Norse god of thunder, allowing him the ability to fly and summon lightning against his foes. Thor was seen as a protector of humanity, fighting for what was just and right against formidable enemies; however, only those who were “worthy” could lift the hammer, thus gaining the power of Thor himself. Bryan High students have proved themselves worthy, lifting high their very own Thor’s hammer.

There’s no ‘I’ in team: Cross country member impacts team unity

After crossing the finish line to earn first place at the Nacogdoches meet, freshman cross country member Samantha Hernandez ran half the race again. JV member sophomore Brooke Weaver suffered from a hip injury and was struggling to finish the race. Samantha went back and finished the race again, stride-by-stride, with Weaver.

Trainers exercise detection, prevention of concussions

Under the blinding lights of Friday nights and a roaring crowd that pushes players to get the next first down even when they’re at their wits end, the sound of helmets cracking resounds underneath bone-crushing tackles. This is an exciting aspect of the game that thrills fans, but the players sometimes struggle to stand after […]

Animated classic captures childhood through characters, cinematic wonder

When someone asks about classic movies, most people think about the milestone movies for each movie genre. Bela Lugosi films for those horror-geeks, the typical 80’s high school movies for some nostalgic middle-aged woman (and current teenage girls), and, of course, Charlie Chaplin for all the hipsters and film buffs. Any way you slice it, there are some undeniable classics. The movies-less-watched can often times be the best movies, especially when created and directed by genius Hayao Miyazaki.

Heroes of Olympus series dies out with last book

Books: culturally defined as the object which civilizations have stored volumes of information, but that’s not all they’re used for. Some permeate your imagination and creativity, some provide knowledge and skill, and then some are John Green books (all John Green emotions put to side), but in contrast there are Rick Riordan books.

Underclassmen retakes scheduled for Wednesday
