October 23, 2013   The ever iconic superman t-shirt. Yesterday was literally a galaxy of shirts, capes, and socks all plastered with that indestructible "S" for which there seems to be no known Kryptonite. The Super Man presence smothers the life force of all other masked men and seekers of justice. Where's the variety? Where are the female super heroes? Wh...

October 22, 2013     Although it was probably tempting to curl up in your comfy pjs and fall asleep, I hope you managed to stay awake today. I saw a surprising amount of relaxed students roaming the halls and almost got lost among the sea of plaid pants and UGG boots. Also, a big ...

May 31, 2013   For most of you, there are still a few years of high school in your future, so summer is a valuable break from school and stress. It becomes a magnificent two and-a-half month party, until the fall comes around and puts an end to the late nights, the vacations, and all the beauty of Summer. But some of you are done. You're out. Gone. June 6th will mark the en...

By Ella Jensen | Staff Writer May 31, 2013 With a week left of freshman year, I can honestly say it was mostly the pits. However, there were some good points. I've have heard too many freshman jokes and have seen too many seniors shake their heads as five foot freshmen pass by with their ten ...

By Ella Jensen | Staff Writer May 29, 2013 Yesterday my friends and I were talking about all the sports we participate in. But when I started to talk about how I am a competitive horseback rider, they instantly rejected horseback riding as a sport. Contrary to popular belief, horseback riding is a sport. This is because, like other sports, horseback riding is a strenuous ...

May 29, 2013 To all the social media addicts/impediments to my academic success who gobble up library computer space: I would think you'd have learned your lesson by now about misusing the library computers. I am most positive the librarians have warned you enough times to work on school related projects instead of updating your Facebook post or re-blogging the lates...

May 23, 2013   The paper clip. Such a simple, wonderful little contraption. But also evil. To whomever leaves paperclips on their desks, you're condemning the next occupant of that seat to an awful fate of distraction and procrastination. On the list of the most distracting things on the planet, paper clips are pretty far up there. And when you leave something that di...

By Maddy Buie | Staff Writer My 22, 2013 When I was younger I always dreamed of growing up and being on varsity sports teams at my high school. I loved the thought of playing on a team and making friends through the sports I would play in high school. Never then did I once think that other kids couldn't have that ...

May 21, 2013 Just exactly who was it that thought installing the word "Senior" to the official Dos Pueblos High School sign on Alameda was a good idea? Does anyone actually think that without the word "Senior" on the sign, people would get Dos Pueblos Senior High mixed up with Dos Pueblos Junior H...

By Max Essig | Staff Writer May 21, 2013 The age of novice skiers casing and ruining every single jump for the boarders is over. Well, for the most part. There was a time when I thought that snowboarding was in fact "cooler" than skiing, even being a skier myself. But now, I'd have to disagre...
