Fashion Forward: Women’s Fashion

Kyle Freese, Reporter

January 26, 2012

Filed under Opinion

I can’t say that I really paid a lot of attention to what women wore until writing this piece. However, walking through the hallways lately, I’ve noticed that girls pay much more attention to how others perceive them than to how comfortable they are and what they enjoy wearing. This doesn’t speak for all, b...

Cafeteria Food

     During lunch, all around me, kids are walking around with cafeteria trays loaded with pizza, tater tots, sherbet, etc. and I can’t help thinking to myself, is this healthy? From what I’ve seen, Free State students prefer to buy their lunches instead of bringing them to school. Don...

Masculine Materials

Men’s fashion. When I was first asked to write about this, I honestly did not know where to begin. How do I write an article about a pair of jeans and a t-shirt? I decided the best way to find out about men’s clothing was to head to the manliest place I could go without being thrown out: the b...

Freshman Point of View

Dear Seniors, we are the freshmen that are apparently ruining your last year in high school. We are not the type of freshmen that are loud and obnoxious. We’re not the immature kids we were in seventh grade. And may God help the seniors that write us off as someone we are not. ...

Pucker Up in Private

Whoever engages in public displays of affection in the hallways at Free State needs to stop immediately. I don’t want to see a girl and “her boo” sucking one another’s face while I am trying to get to my Spanish III class. I’m only a sophomore; however, I can already tell that my years...

Friending Your Family

Anytime I hear people in high school say their parents have their Facebook password, I shudder a little bit. The same thing applies when someone is going off about how they won’t let their parents have Facebook. As far as the first situation goes, parents: let your babies leave the nest. If your...

Holiday Hoopla

Holiday Hoopla

Natalie Hiebert, Reporter

Filed under Opinion, The Spotlight, Top Stories

It is that time of year again. The time of year when Christmas carols pollute the air waves with their holiday cheer and stores deck their halls with boughs of holly and greenery. But all of this pre-holiday mayhem has been the cause of consumer controversy. In the spirit of Charlie Brown, many people...

Letter to the Editor

October 28, 2011

Filed under Opinion

One of the rudest things someone can do is put words in another person’s mouth and assume that their opinion is a definite way. You cannot, in any way, say that the senior class does not want the freshmen to be a part of Free State. The reality of it is, they are here, they aren’t leaving, why ...

Miranda’s Column

Dear Freshmen, I’m one of those seniors. The kind who will probably not like you. The type who will be irate if you go to prom. And may God help the freshmen that sits in front of me at a football game. Yep, I’m one of them. I’m sure plenty of you are really nice people but in all honesty I do...

The young ones #2- A sophomore’s survival guide to being on the bottom

September 7, 2011

Filed under Opinion

The first two weeks of high school passed by and Free State still looks like a maze to you. Every time you walk in the halls, you still see someone who you believe is brand new to the school. And even though there are hundreds of people eating lunch in the same block as you, finding a seat in...

School Parking Frustration

September 6, 2011

Filed under Opinion

Beads of sweat drip down the young man’s face as he grips the steering wheel with all his might. He wants to lay on his horn in frustration and scream because of all the time he’s wasted in this traffic jam day-after-day. This frustration is caused by the unaware, or maybe just uncaring, pare...

To the Freshman….

For many seniors this isn’t the way they imagined their senior year would start. They may feel the freshman are ruining their senior year; a year that is supposed to be the best year of their lives. What I don’t understand is why they’re upset. I’m a senior and I do not blame the freshman fo...
