    High school is all about experiences, whatever it may be high school is a time to remember. You remember school dances, football games, pep rally, sleepovers, parties, and time with all your friends. After this past Wednesday I added another to the list, school field trips. I was...

You may think the best thing about being a senior in the month of June is graduating, but really it’s going to senior week. Just think about a whole week with all your friends, no parents, no school, and no rules at the beach. You can go as hard as you want, as long as you want. Ever since freshman...

Last November 26.5% of Americans voted for Hillary Clinton and 26.3% voted for Donald Trump, but if “didn’t vote” was a candidate they would have won with a plurality of 44.6% of the electorate. The 2016 election had the worst turnout of any in 20 years (only 53% of Americans bothered to vote...

Emma’s Dilemma: Whites don’t have all the power

Last year, in the spring of my junior year, I walked into my engineering classroom and saw this: a chair with the words “WHITE POWER” scratched hastily on the seat with black marker. Is it me, or is that a little racist? Yes, we live in Hereford, which is predominately and undeniably white....

Salad? I’d rather have a steak

Salad? I’d rather have a steak

I have never eaten a salad. I know you may think this is a joke or a lie, but sadly it isn’t. Something about eating a leaf weirds me out. “Are you really okay with admitting that?” Jake Little (’18) said jokingly. Not only have I never eaten a salad, but I may be the unhealthiest eater...

Student parking lot suggestion: pay more for premium spots

Kyle Wetzelberger, Reporter
April 21, 2017
Filed under Opinion

Parking at the school is a big issue that a lot of people share but really gets me worked up. We have to pay $15 just to have the opportunity to park at the student lot. The key word being “opportunity.” This is an outrage and a scandal. You can pay $15 to park there, but then get there every morning...

We live in a free country. You all should know that. We have freedom of speech and expression, meaning that we can say and do as we please. You may take offense when you read the words I’m about to write, and you may lash out at the Harbinger on social media if you so choose, but remember that jus...

Students rely on their parents too much

Michael Purdie, Features Editor
April 21, 2017
Filed under Opinion

As time passes and we grow older, teenagers begin to be exposed to the real world. We are given more responsibilities, we pick up jobs, and we are expected to carry our own weight in a household. Or maybe not. Over the years, there has been a shift in the dynamics of the household. Children are...

Effects Of Makeup On Your Skin

Sophia Hagan, Reporter
April 18, 2017
Filed under Opinion

Who would think that a daily routine of foundation, a dash mascara, a little eyeshadow, and some lip gloss could cause harm to your skin. Many students wear makeup during the school day and when they go out without thinking of the harm makeup can cause to your skin. Everyone should be aware of the overall...

LeBron James is the one athlete I have an extreme amount of respect for and not just for his unbelievable abilities on the court. Of course he can run fast, jump high, and shoot a basketball but the way he’s composed himself and handled his life off the court since entering the league as an 18 year...

Sitting in the theater, heart racing, captured by the ending of “Beauty and the Beast,” I realized my nose was bleeding. I turned to Julia Zemanek (’18) and asked, “What should do?” I couldn’t leave the theater; I couldn’t miss the movie. Zemanek said “I will ask the lady next to me for...
