  • Does the oil spill concern you?
    As you may know, in April 2010 an oil spill occurred in the Gulf of Mexico; it is the result of BP taking "shortcuts" by replacing heavy drilling fluid with saltwater, which triggered the oil spill.
  • Fishing is great fun... try it today!
    Fishing is the activity of catching a fish. It is a worldwide past time, dating back thousands of years, with tons of techniques and traditions. To this day, fishing is still one of America's favorite past times.
  • Bring back desserts...please!
    School lunches have been lacking something this year - dessert. We usually get dessert two to three times a week. Last year we got dessert every day.
  • Student pleased with new pool hours
    Everything is changing, including the pool hours. The hours used to be perfect (1 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. was perfect), but then came along trouble (the 1 to 7 p.m. ...ugh).
  • Burning up the night sky
    Around 10 p.m. on April 14, the night sky lit up over the Midwest as a (more than likely) meteor flew over us. I didn't see it, but from what I heard in school and saw on the Internet, it was a green or blue light with a red or orange tail streaking across the sky.
  • Don't let the music die
    You turn the radio on and no sound comes from it. It's like words from the song "American Pie" by Don McLean..."the day music died." No sound, no wonderful tunes of the old days.
  • April 6 marked the start of quarter four; nine weeks to go until summer. It also marked the time to organize my second semester journalism class for submitting articles for the Spring Grove Herald once more.
  • The homework hustle
    Students these days get way too much homework. They have very busy lives outside of school. Between sports, extracurricular activities, and family, students just don't have time for homework, especially on the weekends.
  • Trollskogen Park needs to be made safe for all
    Rather than sitting in my house wondering what if one tree fell in Trollskogen Park on one child, I am writing today to convince the city to cut down the dead trees at the old Trollskogen Park. It would also benefit the park to update the old equipment.
  • City should consider bike lane on Main Street
    I propose we change the rule of not being able to ride non-motorized vehicles on sidewalks.Also, during the upcoming renovation of the city's main street and sidewalks, we should make a bike lane.
  • City curfew should be reconsidered
    Kids are always growing, and with that they should have more opportunities. One city policy that I would like to change is curfew hours and the ages that it applies to.
  • "Legion" is a new movie that is coming out to theaters on Jan. 22. The movie is about when God loses faith in mankind, and he sends his legion of angels to bring on the Apocalypse. Humanity's only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in desert diner and the Archangel Michael.
  • Growing up fast
    For the past week I have been dealing with my mom being hospitalized.
  • Having an exchange student is a great experience
    Most people would agree that letting a complete stranger live in your house is a bad idea, but my family is doing just that this year, and I would encourage others to give it a try as well.
  • What are you thankful for?
    What are you thankful for? I know that there are many things in my life that I often take for granted. Two of them are school and food.
