At the beginning of the year, Mrs. Duffel asked if anyone would be interested in writing a blog for the online portion of the newspaper. It sounded intriguing but the only reason I really decided to do it because other people wanted me to. Anyway, I decided to do it and in the middle of one of my...

The Magic of Couches

Emma Garcia, Staff Writer

October 22, 2014

Is it odd that when I think about comfort, I think about a couch? With the weather changing and it getting dark earlier I keep wanting to just curl up on a couch and watch TV or something. I don’t think I’m the only one. Some classic TV shows have appreciated the magic of a good couch as well. Think...

Cowboys dominate NFC

October 16, 2014

In recent years people have thought of the Cowboys as a joke. This year is much different. On Sunday the Seahawks hosted the Cowboys in what many people referred to as a “real test” for the Cowboys. Prior to the game, talk surrounded the Cowboys’ recent success. Fans wondered, “Are they a legit team or is this all just a fluke?” On Sunday the Cowboys answered that question. Not only was it a victory but also the Cowboys sent a message to the league that they are a force to be reckoned with. The Dallas Cowboys are 5-1 and look to be a huge threat in the NFC division.

Please Don’t Make Me Run

Question: if someone is on Homecoming Court, do the athletes run out with their sports? I doubt it because the girls are always wearing their fancy dresses but still, I thought I’d ask. If they don’t run out with their sports, I have an idea. I would like to be on Homecoming Court next year. Not that otherwise I would want to or be on Homecoming Court, but still. I will campaign. I will make it my mission to not have to run.

After sweating through the entire summer, it’s a relief to see sweaters and scarves making their comeback. Sadly, not everyone has enough cash to buy a completely new wardrobe for the autumn months. So, here are a few up and coming fall trends that can easily be paired with basic pieces that you already own. Hope this helps make the smooth transition from summer to fall.

Raiders’ woes continue with Carr’s underperformance

On the field Carr is not making as many mistakes as other rookie quarterbacks, but his inability to produce drives that lead to points could jeopardize his role as a starter.

My brother is a complainer

September 24, 2014

I’m here to make you all an offer: would you like to buy a ten-year-old boy who’s obsessed with comic books? If not, I’d be willing to pay you in return for taking him. No? Well, okay.

Staying Positive

Things were moving along fairly well; we bought a bassinet, received bags of baby clothes from generous friends, and worked on getting our room at Drew's cousin's house presentable.

United States must lead fight against ISIL

United States must lead fight against ISIL

For most of our lives, the United States was at war with the nation of Iraq, for reasons that I still to this day find unjustified. Growing up, we heard of cities like Baghdad and the corrupt leader named Saddam Hussein.

Ray Rice incident reflective of domestic violence among athletes

Peter Ha, Staff Writer

September 19, 2014

People are people and will make mistakes. Some mistakes are simply not easily forgiven. Ray Rice and his domestic violence case is an example of a mistake he should have to live with forever, knowing this mistake cost him it all — his fans, job and dignity. The NFL should follow through with a permanent suspension of Rice from the league. Though great talent is being left behind, bad actions deserve consequences. Allowing Rice to return to work would only hinder the message the NFL is trying to send: domestic violence will not be tolerated.

For years Division I players across the country have stood by while colleges have reaped the rewards for the use of their names, images, and likenesses to add to their coffers. But in a game changing decision, those rules will be changing.

A tribute to Robin Williams

A terrible, terrible pain was prevalent in this one man’s life, and an image of him has been painted that will never fade from our memories, and that image will hopefully help motivate us to reach out to those who are also suffering, and even if we couldn’t rescue Robin Williams’ from his own demons, it’s not entirely too late. We can learn how to save others, for his sake.
