  • Fine Arts illustrates student talent

    The week before Thanksgiving break saw a multitude of students come together to perform and showcase their talents.

  • "Knives Out" Rian Johnson

    I would have gone to see "Knives Out" even if it didn't feature Chris Evans as a smug, sarcastic, sweater-wearing murder suspect and Daniel Craig as a quirky, private investigator using donuts to explain murder, but those were certainly added bonuses. The whodunnit mystery-comedy opened in theaters on Thanksgiving Day and has viewers wondering at each plot turn.

  • California wildfires exhaust first responders

    Two fires are wreaking havoc on the state of California. Both the Maria fire, which is affecting Sonoma and Los Angeles counties and the Kincade fire, which has been contained mainly to the northern parts of the state, have first responders working tirelessly to put out the blaze. With the autumnal winds fanning the flames, this has been no easy feat.

  • "OCD" Logic ft. Dwn2earth

     On Monday, Oct. 28 while I was working, listening to my usual Spotify playlist I thought to myself, 'I haven't heard anything new from Logic lately,' which is a bit surprising after the year he's had. The next day I was in the darkroom listening to some generic radio on Spotify when I heard a familiar voice. I went out of the darkroom where it was safe to look at my phone and saw I was listening to the newest single by Logic.
