Hindsight is 20/20. It's easy to know what to do after something has happened, but it’s impossible to predict the future. This seems to be the mantra of lawmakers today when regarding enviornmental polcies. Among lawmakers, there seems to be a dwindling push for environmental legislation. Politics often ...

Bee Aware

Quinn Maslow, Senior Staff Writer

January 25, 2018


Filed under Opinion

These days, many of us take so much for granted: The clothes we wear, the food we eat, and the coffee we drink in the morning. All these things we take for granted wouldn't be possible if it wasn't for the honey bee. Bees aren't responsible for just making honey, but they also pollinate plants and ...

I used to love talking “politics”. It was a welcomed challenge. I don’t love it anymore. It’s exhausting, the fact that I have to explain why we should value clean water over money, or providing rest for refugees. It’s exhausting that I need to explain why you should care about other people and the...

  According to Apparel Search, the ripped jeans trend has been around for a long time, starting in the 1970s during the heavy metal era and continuing into the 2000s for the “grunge” look of alternative rock. But as the punk culture faded out, so did the look.   According to Apparel...

A Letter to my Freshman Self

Filed under Opinion

  Ellie: As I begin to write, there is so much blank space on this paper, yet my thoughts are anything but. To think of how to summarize the lessons I’ve experienced through my four years on Peony Lane seems a greater challenge than fighting through the crowd during passing time. To begin blun...

The Croc Craze

May 26, 2017


Filed under Opinion

  This won’t be a surprise to anyone, but I like crocs.   Not only do crocs provide a large sense of comfort, they allow me to express myself that typical running shoes do not. Crocs are considered goofy and childish. However, my mission from the beginning of high school has been t...

ACT Falls Flat

Lydia Johnson, Senior Staff Writer

May 26, 2017


Filed under Opinion

  For juniors, the ACT is a long and gruesome process. Along with school, sports and extracurricular activities, this type of testing adds a whole new level of stress.   Some students approach the ACT with books, classes, or even hoping for the best.   After taking my first ACT an...

Th1rteen R3asons Why Not

Kylie Bolter, Opinion Editor

May 26, 2017


Filed under Opinion

  Thirteen Reasons Why is a toxic show that not only inaccurately depicts suicide but dangerously twists a tragic event into a teen phenomenon about revenge, love, and drama.   If, like me, you have read the novel by Jay Asher, then you know the original plotline:   Hannah Baker, a los...

Ellie Ronning, Editor in Chief

May 24, 2017


Filed under Opinion

For my senior project in EAPPSSA I looked at the way that consumable products (such as foodstuffs, cigarettes, and alcohol) is marketed directly towards children. I started off, not really knowing how I felt about the issue—I didn’t even really see it as a problem. But then as I investigated more...
