Zodiac signs are inaccurate, no scientific evidence

Zodiac signs are inaccurate, no scientific evidence

Witchcraft. That’s what I was told zodiac signs were as a child. As I became a teen, I would sneak on my phone to see what my horoscope was for the week. I’d always read it and wait for the prediction of my week to come true. But it usually didn’t. While zodiac signs are fun and interesting to...

Sexual assault and domestic violence awareness is no longer fresh news. It is a serious topic because of the severe consequences for all involved. Although more conscious efforts are being made to spread awareness of this form of abuse, victims have a hard time coming to terms with their situation...

Donald Trump came to Monroe on Nov. 6, to promote Eddie Rispone in the upcoming gubernatorial election, which will take place on Nov. 16. Much excitement surrounded President Trump’s visit to our city. So much so that around 40,000 people registered for free tickets to the rally but only around 7,000...

President Donald Trump. One of the most talked about people in America and possibly the world. And especially here in Monroe since he rallied for himself and gubernatorial candidate Eddie Rispone. While I don’t prefer Trump or Rispone, I think Trump’s visit to Monroe was impactful and shouldn’t...

Graffiti brings purpose, expression on issues

Graffiti brings purpose, expression on issues

We see graffiti everywhere we go. It’s on buildings, train cars, playground equipment, bathroom stalls and anywhere else you can think of. Some of it is seemingly pointless and sometimes offensive, while some of it is smart, detailed and well-drawn. Many say that it is not art, just delinquents defacing...

Retaking sections of ACT (AGAINST)

Retaking sections of ACT (AGAINST)

Hope Anderson, [email protected]

November 4, 2019

There will be new options concerning the ACT test starting in September 2020, including retaking sections of the test, according to act.org. I am not against students getting to showcase their highest potential. However, I am against the possible consequences that might spur from this new change: the...

When I was a kid, I dreamed of being able to go to college. I would often imagine myself packing my favorite things into big brown boxes and stuffing them into the backseat of a car I didn’t own yet. Then, I’d drive away as my mom waved goodbye to me from our front porch. This dream followed me...

Care less about grades, more about learning

Care less about grades, more about learning

Grades- it’s what a lot of students worry about. We worry about our grades because we want to get hired by future employers, maintain scholarships and just feel better about ourselves overall. But what if we stopped worrying about grades and focused more on what is actually being taught? The one...

Control what you pay for on social media

Control what you pay for on social media

Most of us use some type of social media, whether it be Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or something else. But imagine if these platforms began to require payment for you to be able to use them. This issue has become a hot topic in the realm of Internet communications. Content providers like Facebook...

I don’t know about you, but I am one of the most uncreative people I know. It’s hard for me to come up with cute party ideas, costume ideas for Halloween or even DIY projects to decorate my house. So, I depend on Pinterest and Google to find me the best ideas for my projects. But with all these...

Free candy won’t win my vote

Ready? Let’s say it together, “Thank God election season is over!” All of that free candy has ruined my appetite going into Halloween. But, on a serious note, we have got to fix how campaigning is done for student elections. You think it’s a normal day on campus, you’re minding your own business...

Has technology killed romance?

Has technology killed romance?

Hope Anderson, [email protected]

October 21, 2019

(Her Perspective) R.I.P. romance, for music and social media, has brought upon us its sudden and most likely temporary death. Despite that opening line, I want to go ahead and make it known that I am not one of those people who blame social media for the destruction of everything good in life. However,...
