Sea World of Hurt

Sea World of Hurt

Lydia Johnson, Design Editor

January 25, 2018

Kyara was the last Orca whale to be bred into captivity for SeaWorld. In the summer of 2017, the three month old calf died. This was following the death of Tilikum, SeaWorld’s most famous orca and prior to SeaWorld’s oldest orca, Kasatka, according to CNN. SeaWorld satisfied the public’s outrag...

A Survivor’s Story

A Survivor’s Story


December 20, 2017

This writer chooses to remain anonymous.   The day that I lost my virginity was one that I will never forget. The feeling of him grabbing my neck and telling me to do what he said is something I will never forget. I will never forget the way that his breath felt on neck as I screamed for him...

A Time for Tragedy

Kelsey Deering, Senior Staff Writer

December 20, 2017

  59 people killed, 527 injured, and the most horrific mass shooting in modern United States history is considered a tragedy that shook the nation. Today, the word tragedy is overused. Often times, to me, It serves as a go-to in society when anything negative happens.   We know that 26 died...

Pain is Never Permanent

Lauren Leaseburg, Photo Editor

December 20, 2017

  I have lived with depression since 8th grade. I don’t remember life before it and it has been a daily part of me since. Depression doesn’t define me, but it is a part of who I am. Some days it hits me like a train. I’m exhausted, physically and mentally, I’m irritable, and I lose all interest...

Total Internal Reflection on the Actions of Others

Kai Christiansen, A&E Editor

December 20, 2017

  I’ve never been a violent person, but a few weeks ago I was pushed to my limit. The rage I felt was channeled into violence toward myself and not toward the people who made me feel the way I did. Things need to change at this school, hell, everywhere. It’s not just a simple lesson of “understanding...

Protests, Anthems, and Football

Alyssa Patil, Anonymous, and Sahil Chugani

November 1, 2017

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...

Oh Jeans!!

Kai Christiansen, A&E Editor

October 24, 2017

  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...

  It’s been a good four years Wayzata. A lot of everything has happened since Freshmen year.   There have been tears shed, dances organized, papers written, ACTs taken, tournaments won, laughs had, but most importantly there have been incredible memories shared.   Each year is h...

A Letter to my Freshman Self

Ellie Olmanson, Managing Editor

June 2, 2017

  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

Paige Jaeger, Staff Writer

May 26, 2017

  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

  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

  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...
