Salad? I’d rather have a steak

Salad? I’d rather have a steak

Filed under Opinion, Showcase

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...

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...

Brady’s Banter: Athletes and Politics not a good mix

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...

I don’t have Snapchat. Or Instagram. Or Facebook or Twitter or any other form of social media. I don't share my amateur photography with the rest of the world as many do. And frankly, I’m glad of that. Photos are heartbeats captured in a moment’s flash of color and light. It’s a shame we post...

Our View: Snow or Summer? We want both

March 10, 2017
Filed under Opinion

Snow days and delays are a no-win situation for Baltimore County. Some want snow days, some want a long summer, and as we know, there can never be a compromise. When it’s the dead of winter and nobody wants to go to school, students dream of snow days. But, when it’s the middle of June,...

Yes Megan Lime Lily Cavallaro What should I wear tomorrow? Maybe I’ll dress comfy? Except I’ve dressed comfortable every day for the last two weeks. What is the weather forecast looking like? It’ll be cold in the morning and hot by the afternoon. Haven’t I already worn this shirt this week?...

High school showering goes down the drain

High school showering goes down the drain

Four perfectly functioning showers are in both locker rooms, which means eight perfectly functioning showers are never used. Even if students wanted to shower in the full five minutes they are given after gym class, they cannot because the showers are full of miscellaneous equipment. Principal Joe...
