“Come to Jesus!” The doughy faced Newt Gingrich, who is currently polled at 15 delegates according to RealClearPolitics.com, could use some of that divine intervention. Since early August, Gingrich’s campaign has constantly been relying on the connection between religion and state to garner support for his wavering fan-base. Behind Rick ...

Everybody knows that District 158 is run by biased little fiends who only have hearts and checkbooks for sports teams while the rest of the poor, defenseless extracurricular activities lie dying in the gutter—forsaken. A lot of people seem to believe that unless you’re in California where liberals...

Senior Zach Polentini leans forward in his seat and rests his chin on his clasped hands, eyebrows furrowed in concentration. He tries focusing as his AP Literature and Composition teacher discusses last night's lesson. A boy and girl sitting directly behind him gossip loudly so that he can barely...

Everyone has heard from their friends that this or that teacher “won’t let them fail.” With curved tests and grades, easy assignments with easy grades, and making the classroom an easygoing environment, school is becoming increasing hard to fail.

Every day, students wake up an early hour. Some, such as junior Darby Kelleher, wake up excited to start the new day—others like junior Haliegh Greer, do not.  Kelleher wakes up at 4:30 a.m., jumps in the shower, brushes her teeth and gets ready. Greer slaps the snooze button and rolls over, still...

As the teacher dutifully attempts to fill in as much notes as he can in the forty-seven minute class period, junior Kyle Nejman intensely clings onto to every word. However, his neighbor is not quite as fortunate to immediately pickup on every statement presented. “The person I was working with...

  She had the very first spot near door sixteen. It was the golden spot, a true luck of the draw for alumnus Ashley Pietrusiak when she drove to school as a senior. Though she never considered how other people would take advantage of that wondrous open space, and park in it even though it wasn’t theirs for parking in. It was a month into P...

  It has been a long, grueling task to battle through the first day of school, made bearable by the kind of hope that only lunch can inspire. Having syllabus after syllabus whipped at my head and clawing my way through congested hallways leaves my stomach roaring for a good meal. I am just...

  At 7:30 on a late start Wednesday, Huntley High School junior Sandy Le breathes a sigh of relief. She still has thirty minutes before school officially starts and the buses have appropriately dropped her off on time. However, outside those bulky HHS doors, junior Meagan Powell has just been reintroduced to the school’s ill-fitting idea of t...
