Weighting for changes

Ify Anikamadu

December 21, 2012

As I look around my second period Weight Training class, I see on one side there are the fit athletes working hard to train for their respective sports.

When I was 4 years old, my mother asked, “Do you want sausage or cheese pizza?” The complexity of this question meant some serious contemplation.

The situation. In my time at Huntley High School, I haven’t gone a school year without hearing complaints about off-campus lunch at Huntley. Or rather, lack thereof.

It’s a plague that travels through the halls Huntley, affecting students, both dedicated and less than so. It destroys kids. Each year it escalates around the end of April. It’s a pandemic.

Walking through the halls, I bet you’ve seen them. Even if you don’t know it, they’re probably there. Girls (and guys) who’ve changed their whole appearance in a matter of minutes.

“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 ...
