September 23, 2015

Filed under Opinion

There is a lost art that goes unnoticed in the world of education and learning. It’s a beautiful skill, which most take for granted or don’t even get to experience; it is the practice of accidental stumbling.

Most things in life are temporary, for instance: jobs, vehicles, friendships and relationships and that is something that is widely accepted in the world.

Legal drinking age should not change because of survey

Heather kemp, Staff Writer

April 12, 2014

Filed under Forum, Opinion

Do you remember that time when 100 college presidents signed a petition saying that the legal drinking age being 21 is not working? This sounds like a plot to a teen comedy that would rake in big bucks at the box office. If it ever was made into a movie, it would be based on true events because this actually happened. In 2009, t...
