Jason Kraft, Opinion Editor

February 21, 2020

The Marvel movie machine has been recognized at the Oscars this year, as they’ve been given a simple nomination for visual effects. However, this is meager compared to the 11 nominations and two Oscars that “Joker” has received, or the 10 nominations that Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman”...

Our View: Additional days are a waste of resources

February 21, 2020

Thank you Governor Larry Hogan for prioritizing vacations to Ocean City over the wellbeing and education of Maryland students. Thank you for causing plenty of confusion in school schedules by mandating that public schools must start after Labor Day and thus ruining the scheduling norms students had become...

What I learned in the service industry

Molly Szymanski, Editor-in-Chief

January 6, 2020

Last April, I sat scrolling through Indeed and Glassdoor, as one does when they are freshly fired, thinking of something I could possibly do to pay for gas. All of the babysitting jobs in a five-mile radius were taken, and you’d never catch me dead in another fast food joint, specifically those that se...

Our View: The student matters more than the school

Brick and mortar stores closing ruins holiday spirit

The holiday season should bring about a time of joy and happiness for everyone, but it is often marred by the reality that the stores we know and love are doomed to close. With every passing year, online shopping orders skyrocket and easily outcompete in-store sales especially during the holidays. This...

The war on Christmas continues

Lindsay Clarke, Managing Editor

December 19, 2019

Decorating a week before Thanksgiving, hiding the elf of the shelf, and putting up an unreasonably large blow-up Santa in your front yard are traditions celebrated by many. Yet there is a growing number of people who don’t consider Christmas as a religious holiday and in 2019 the religious elements...

Christmas nostalgia sets in once again

Elizabeth Schriver, Reporter

December 19, 2019

The holiday season is finally here and during this time of year holiday nostalgia is bound to set in. The terrible three-week gap between Thanksgiving and holiday break is the longest stretch of the year, and undoubtably is killing us all with deadlines and long-term projects. All this stress has me remin...

Phone policy allows exercise of First Amendment rights

Phone policy allows exercise of First Amendment rights

Jason Kraft, Opinion Editor

December 19, 2019

The right of every student to free speech seems to be a very loose subject given the very nature of school. You’re always subordinate to someone else and there is always some adult breathing down your neck threatening swift punishment if need be, so can a student really stand up against something they...

AllTimely Helps with Stressful Student Life

Joan Steinly-Marks

December 19, 2019

Picture this: each morning, you’re running out of the auditorium to your homeroom. You throw your backpack to the ground and run next door. “Do you have enrichment?” you cry, only to be met with a shake of the head. You run out of this room and to the first floor to meet your English teacher. The...

Joanie’s Baloney, Featuring Art by Emma Hankey

October 22, 2019

Painting your nails is fun. Lots of people agree with me on this; it’s a form of self-expression that, unlike cutting your hair, can be easily changed if you decide that you don’t like it anymore. So why are certain groups shamed for doing it? To be perfectly clear, I’m talking about guys.  W...

Spirit Restored in Home Football Games

Sarah Dickerson

October 2, 2019

Being someone who transferred to Hereford last year, there were many differences between my old school and here. The one that stuck out to me the most had to be the lack of spirit and fans at sporting events, especially football. This year, however, has sparked a change in the lackluster spirit. At...
