Why You’re Already a Feminist

Sydney Koehler, Features Editor

April 15, 2016

“I believe in equal rights, but I’m not a feminist.” I’ve always wondered where this notion came from that feminists aren’t champions of equality. I’ve always been confused when people have associated feminism with man-hating. I’ve always been puzzled by those who choose not to identify as...

Georgia Ansley, News Editor

April 14, 2016

Thanksgiving is the only holiday left un¬touched by money making hands and the only civil holiday celebrated by all Americans.

Tyler Story, Guest Writer

April 11, 2016

I believe that race is a difficult topic to think about. To speak out on it can be even more difficult, but a dialogue needs to be started. Due to recent events including Trayvon Martin and Ferguson there seems to be a larger interest in the African American community and how it is treated. Now is t...

ACT Losing its Validity

Lauren Hayward, Senior Staff Writer

April 8, 2016

The ACT test, now required for all high school juniors in the state of Minnesota, is not an accurate representation of student intelligence. There is a strong correlation between family income levels and ACT scores. According to the ACT, “the standards are empirically derived descriptions of...
