The bell rings, signaling the beginning of lunch. Students crowd around the cafeteria and pour into the lunch room, pushing, shoving, and even cutting through the lines to be the first to get food. The lunch staff attempts to control the chaos, but no one seems to hear or pay attention. By the end of lunch, the cafeteria and courtyard are trashed, and the only people standing are the janitors left to clean up the mess. Where is the respect? Respect is a consideration...

Unless you want to be stuck in an awkward gift exchange, at least listen to these suggestions. Gift giving has many subcategories, and they all depend on your relationship....

Sexual assault has always been an issue, and even though it is a hard topic to discuss, the time to end the silence is here.   On Oct. 5, the media’s attention was set on film producer Harvey Weinstein who was accused of sexual assault b...

Trump was recently accused of disrespecting a deceased soldier’s family during his phone call with the widow to express his condolences. Regardless of whose side you are on, we will never know what actually happened unless the phone call is released. That did not stop the topic from blowing up on Twitter though. While one side accused Trump of being insensitive, the other side thought that nothing went wrong with the phone call, and this whole ordeal was blown out of...

Missed drumlines, cancelled pep-rallies, an inactive student section, rained out games... A few weeks into to the year, the excitement seemed to disappear. How did this happen? We came blame Hurricane Irma, which caused plans to be rushed and postponed. It started with the most anticipated game of the year, Hagerty versus Oviedo, held on a Thursday night. Then a week of school was washed away, the Pink’d game was rescheduled to a school night, and a football game against La...
