Samantha Meyer, Staff Writer

October 8, 2010

      Recently, I read Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen. It’s a cute book, and a really easy read. It’s a little over 200 pages, and the print is big. Flipped is the lighthearted story of first love, set in a quiet suburban town. It has two narrators: Bryce Loski, and Julianna Baker. Julia...

FlashForward

Kelly Looney, Editor in Chief

October 23, 2009

Science fiction is not my forte, so when my boyfriend pleaded me to sit down and watch a TV show with him, I was immediately annoyed.

October 5, 2009

While the music blasting from car radios may have made eras before us cringe, our method of use is something they would have applauded. Music has moved from record players to cassette tapes, from cassette tapes to CDs, then from CDs to the all-knowing and powerful mp3 players. As time has gone on the...

Broken Hill

Noah Quortrup, Staff Writer

September 16, 2009

I will start off by saying that my expectations for Broken Hill, directed by Dagen Merrill, were far less than average. The trailer was muddled and confusing. The synopsis seemed disjointed and random, and I can honestly say that I had no idea what the movie was about before walking into the auditori...
