You can't go anywhere without hearing about the Powerball lottery draw Wednesday night. Seriously, it just seems to be all anyone is talking about. “Lottery this,” and “lottery that”.

"Required readings" is a two word phrase that can make almost any student cringe, but in the case of My Name Is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok, a mere cringe would be a compliment. The sophomores taking Pre AP English 2 this year were forced to read this, the most depressing book ever written. The novel ...

“Clear your desk, and take out a piece of paper. We’re taking the test,” the teacher says. As students throw everything in their bags and take out a pencil, a couple people turn to the person next to them and whisper something to them.

$1.25, $1.25 for one tiny little cookie, just one. There has got to be a limit, our parents only have so much money after all. Worse, a burger with nothing on it is at least $2.00 not counting the water, milk, or juice you might wash it down with, or the fries, salad, or fruit you would want for a side....
