There, Their & They’re

April 10, 2016 3:31pm |

It exists in the shadows of our memories, it lurks in our internet history, it is reborn time and time again, it’s a beast we fight with daily… Yes people, I’m talking about the ever so touchy subject of vocabulary. (I can practically hear the English […]

Caucuses are a Mess

March 2, 2016 12:16pm |

If you went to a caucus on Super Tuesday you know quite well that the process is one of the most cumbersome ways to vote.  The organization is weak, regulation is minimal and the process involves an ungodly amount of time.  Choosing a party candidate […]

Valentine’s Day: Reality vs. Expectations

February 14, 2016 5:38pm |

Every year, Valentine’s Day is made up to be this incredibly romantic occasion. Whether they’re single, or in a relationship, people tend to wrap themselves up in this big fantasy. We imagine our own romantic moments that could come straight out of Hollywood.  But, every […]

Sanders Stands Out

February 2, 2016 7:38pm |

Last night at the Iowa caucus, our favorite democratic socialist, Bernie Sanders, was able to close the gap behind front runner Hillary Clinton to land a tie.  Sanders was predicted by the Des Moines Register poll, historically the most accurate poll in the Iowa Caucus, […]

December 31, 2015 7:04pm |

I’ve thought about this reflection for weeks. At first I figured I would recap some of the events of the year, as if there won’t be an indescribable amount of recaps. I would mention the January terrorist attack on the French satire publication Charlie Hebdo, the […]

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, step right up to see the newest attraction at the Littleton High School Fair! Here we already offer exhilarating rides and games such as the I.O.P. Tilt-a-Whirl, the Final Exam Emotional Rollercoaster, the Pin-the-Tail on Your Self-Worth, and Wasting […]

Black Friday is upon us

It is that time of year again. The smell of cookies in the oven, the sight of snowflakes hanging delicately from the tree branches, a slightly over-cooked, fifteen-pound Butterball resting in peace on the kitchen table, frantic shoppers forming angry mobs outside of department stores. […]

Give me a break

November 24, 2015 8:52pm |

We did it! We worked through 21 whole weeks of school and got to the fabled, ever-powerful fall break. The magical powers of the week are supposed to allow us to stuff our faces with unreal amounts of soul food, celebrate a day when our […]

How we can help Paris, France in their time of need

November 14, 2015 10:54pm |

I am sickened to say that there has been another terrorist attack. Although it may not be close to us, and many of us are not directly involved in it, it is still heartbreaking. Sometimes, it’s easy to think things like this can’t happen. But […]

Who doesn’t love dressing up once a year, on an especially spooky night, to get free candy? Everyone has had a time in their life when they were filled with excitement at the thought of trick or treating. For some of us, that time is […]
