The Beatles reunite at the Grammy Awards

The Beatles reunite at the Grammy Awards

Some would argue that having half of the remaining Beatles perform together at the “Grammy’s Salute," which is being recording the day after the Awards, would be much better than the Grammy Awards itself. I am not ashamed to say that I am one of those people, and we would have a pretty heated debate if you thought otherwise....

Sherlock Series Three

January 30, 2014

I just spent my entire Sunday afternoon watching the third series of BBC's "Sherlock." The entirety of the third series came out in the UK quite a while ago, but I never got around to watching it. I had to go to work, I was busy with school, I was simply too lazy to get my laptop out; these are several ...

Early Thursday morning, Jan. 23, 19 year old pop-sensation, Justin Bieber was arrested for drag racing and a DUI in Miami Beach, FL. Not exactly a surprise, with recent run-ins with local law enforcement and the arrest of rapper Lil Za in Bieber’s home. Many people, including myself, were left anticip...

Last week, as I was walking out of the cafeteria, I was caught up in the bottleneck traffic jam of the main door. As I struggled past all of my peers to try and get to my Link Crew advisory on time, a massive linebacker of a guy plowed right into me. I don’t know why I didn’t see him approaching on the horizon...

Ever since I was a little girl, I would come downstairs and look over at the television and have no idea what my father was watching. I shrugged it off as one of those silly science fiction shows he watched and I carried on playing with my American Girl doll like any other privileged child of around 9 ...

Are you a superficial Facebook user?

Are you a superficial Facebook user?

Holly Baldacci

October 27, 2013

Facebook makes me want to throw up in my hands. There are few things in the universe that I deem to be deserving of this disgust. Among them are mullets, romantic comedies, and the word “swaggy,” but none of the aforementioned items irks me as much as Facebook, which I’ve just recently joined. As a ...

As the spring season finally gets into the swing of things after the long weather delay, track, lacrosse, soccer, baseball, and softball teams will be hoping to aspire to the same success that girls basketball had during their season, or even better.  With many of the Huntley High School spring spor...

For all those who do not know about this, he is a former LAPD police officer and former United States Navy reservist whom has a connection with a series of shooting attacks on police officers and...

Staying home while sick is more productive than going to school.

December 21, 2012

December is the beginning of many things, snow: temperature, but most of all, getting sick. When you’re sick, it’s simple: stay home. It’s as easy as that. Or don't get sick. Germs are not big enough to be seen but they can spread. In order for Huntley to remain germless every spot would have...

In the spirit of new years why shouldn’t negative aspects of people be overlooked?

December 21, 2012

In the past few weeks, I’ve been thinking about what my New Year’s resolution is going to be. Now I’m fully informed that New Year’s resolutions can happen on any day of the year since they’re just motivators plopped on the start of a new calendar. I’ve given myself numerous resolutions...

As winter is coming up, everyone is looking forward to the holidays. Despite the hot chocolate, winter break and children playing in the snow, one thing comes into play that seems to dampen everyone’s spirit-flu. As students, the first thing that normally goes through our heads when we’re sick is:...
