You’d have to live under a rock to not know the acclaimed 1988 Beetlejuice movie, a classic story combining humor with creeps. However, this new Beetlejuice is not only just as popular, but in a new form — on Broadway. The musical adaptation of this film hit Broadway on October 14, 2018, and in a little over a year it’s al...

A “Stolen” Emotion: Love or Stockholm?

Stolen was published by the author Lucy Christopher in 2009. It is a realistic-fiction book written in the form of letters from a hostage to her captor. One of the main reasons this book is so delightful and hard to stop reading is because the letters never really stop. There are no chapters or de...

December 4, 2019

Expectations: a belief that someone will or should achieve something. These beliefs, reasonable or unreasonable, cause stress. No matter how healthy one is, or how old, expectations will cause stress. Normally, people say their stress comes from parents, or bosses, or even their peers. However, an u...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is exactly what this franchise needed to redirect the series back into the spotlight of greatness. Despite the flaws and bugs this game has launched with, it is currently my favorite Call of Duty because of the direction of gameplay, story, and that sweet new game engine....

Who Should Read This Book? Some Boys Should.

Madison Crumpton, Reporter

October 25, 2019

I was desperate. I needed a book to read for my English class. I was pillaging through the sad three bookcases of Brashier, when I found the book. THE BOOK. I had no idea at the time it would be that good; I simply read the back cover and said “good enough.” Let me just say that I finished the bo...

Catholicism: the OG Christianity

Allie Weber, Reporter

October 23, 2019

Catholicism, known as the universal religion, is practiced by over 1.2 billion people worldwide. With its capital in one of the largest cities in the world and its leader, Pope Francis, being a Twitter icon, I find it difficult to believe that so little is known or understood about Catholicism by those of o...

When you think of 2K Games as a company, you probably think of them as the publishers of the Borderlands franchise and the makers of the NBA 2K franchise. In my opinion, however, they are actually one of the greediest companies in the gaming industry right next to Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard. N...

March 12, 2019

Nothing makes acts of police brutality okay but not enough attention to the good things police do daily for their communities is not okay either. The bad aspects of a cops job are constantly pushed into the media to spread throughout the public. This can give a terrible image of cops in general, causi...
