Are you in way over your head this year? Did you sign up for the “easiest” classes after them being recommended by your peers? “It’s an easy A,” they all said. I walked into 2 out of my 3 AP classes at the beginning of the school year thinking that this will be a breeze. I could not have been...

Filed under Opinion

For my birthday this year, all I asked for was every season of the hit series, The Office. As one of the only adolescents in the modern world who does NOT have Netflix, I watch tv as the episodes come out and fill up my DVR with shows that I love. I know, it’s barbaric.

If you’ve driven Middletown Road recently, you, like me, might have been struck by the sea of “Trump 2016” signs, or maybe you’ve spotted a local supporter sporting a campaign T-shirt or a “Make America Great Again” ballcap which is being mass-produced and imported from China. Yep we’re...

Disrespect. That’s the only word that comes to mind when I think of 49ers’ quarterback Colin Kaepernick. And there’s a simple reason for that. The Star-Spangled Banner, along with the American flag, has symbolized freedom since it was penned by Francis Scott Key during the Battle of Baltimore...
