• My chronic disease called glasses

    By Milla Miller I am a member of the freshman class at Nathan Hale High School. I am 5’3’’ with brown hair and green eyes. And I am a proud survivor of a terrible chronic disease called glasses. No worries. My illness proves to be neither fatal nor contagious, but it gives me large amounts of trouble and it doesn’t […]

  • The Grand Tour Review: Top Gear 2.0?

    By: Ethan MacLaren “Top Gear” was one of the biggest shows of the 2000’s. Now, Amazon and the stars of  “Top Gear” are trying to recreate the same magic on a different platform. In 13 years and 22 seasons Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May hosted the show which regularly had over 3million views per episode in the U.K. […]

  • Should I Protest?

      by Stanley Rex Godfrey Should I protest? That is a question I have been asking myself ever since the beginning of the 2016 election. I think all parties of the U.S. political spectrum would agree this has been an ugly few months. With all the major issues at stake and such different opinions on all platforms, it has been […]

  • Rogue One review: High in nostalgia, low in originality

    By Nicholas Gower I came to the theater with an open mind about this movie. After seeing The Force Awakens, I was concerned about the future of Star Wars. Was Disney going to churn out new Star Wars movies every single year, each one duller than the last? After seeing this movie, I can answer that question with a yes. […]

  • Mind Game

    by Thea Derby I’ve always avoided school sports, ever since I was small. There were a few occasions where I joined a sport in middle school–I joined basketball and quit after two practices. And then in seventh grade, I played ultimate frisbee. The reason behind not playing wasn’t because I was bad at the sport or because I wasn’t able […]

  • What about pep band?

  • A little less [his]tory and a little more [her]story

    by Anna Schactler History is taught in nearly every high school, but how many actually focus on women’s history? The answer is not many. We learn about general historic events and how countries and their economies were affected by various events. But we rarely go into depth on how women were affected. History teacher Erin Lynch is the only woman […]
