   When I was growing up, there was a family in my neighborhood who turned their backyard into a breeding ground for my nightmares once every year. As I walked through my neighborhood on Halloween with my orange plastic pumpkin full of candy, I always dashed across the street to avoid this backyard...

  The Chiefs are not my number one team (let’s go Chicago), but they are my number two. So I had to cheer for them when they played the Patriots, who I despise almost as much as the Packers. The Chiefs had a great comeback, starting the second half down 27-21.    As I watched the game, I saw how ...

  I thought senior year would be much scarier, but so far it has been great. Just kidding. The past month has been a whirlwind of drama, last minute studying and an abundance of herbal tea.    I went into this school year with the intent of buckling down and keeping my grades up for one final ego boost...

For the past few weeks, every venture into the Twitterverse has launched me into a full length summary of every little redeeming quality the fall season has to offer.

Spring Cleaning or Bathrobe Finding?

Emily Johannes and It's my Opinion: Managing Editor

Filed under Opinion

One of my favorite things to do is to clean out my closet at the end of winter. There is something very satisfactory about purging out the old things and making room for the new. Out with the old, past fashions, in with whatever new trend is making its mark. I have tossed out some pretty embarrassing ...

What New Theater?

What New Theater?

Lacy Williams and Grace Buehler

Filed under Opinion

This “no performance theater” thing has really prepared me for my future as a performer. I’m going to be able to adjust to many different settings when I tour. However, it would be nice for LHS to be able to call a theater (big enough to hold more than 250 people) home. I’m one of the biggest...
