It is very easy to brush things off with the excuse that you "don't have time" or "don't feel like" doing them; however, this mentality can come back to haunt you in the long run. I have heard many people say their biggest fear is that they'll look back and say "I wish I had done..." Finish that se...

On Saturday the towns of Litchfield, Taylorville and Butler, to name a few, experienced damage to their houses and fear that some of us have not and may not ever experience.

Contrary to what many think, rock music lives on

I am a fan of many different musical genres, some that were popular in the past and some that are popular currently.  Rock and roll set the standard for rebellious youth culture after the death of jazz music, and it has unfortunately been a thing of the past for a while.  Or has it been a th...

Don’t take yourself so seriously

Carole Hodorowicz, Columnist

November 29, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

I like to tell myself there are few things I am pretty good at without question. Topping the short list of those things is my ability to be self-deprecating.  As a victim to several unfortunate trends throughout my time on this planet, I have a lot of regrets, burdens and embarrassing moments I carry....

For years it has seemed like the NBA and its surrounding community was the most inclusive and accepting in sports. It is a time where NFL players like Colin Kaepernick get blacklisted for speaking out on social issues. And in baseball, MLB players like Chris Archer say they feel uncomfortable spea...

Filed under Columns, Opinions

Within the last decade or so, lots of research has come out drawing a correlation between depression, anxiety, and short-term memory loss. Of course, this isn’t the case with everyone’s depression. Everyone experiences everything differently, etcetera, etcetera. Not to worry that you’re not depress...

November 27, 2018


Filed under Columns

America has juggled the issue of immigration since our inception. Unsurprisingly, this problem has again reared its ugly head with the formation of another migrant caravan currently camped on our southern border.

Life can be interesting and ironic

Karena Ozier, Columnist

Filed under Columns

How ironic would it be that when I say I haven’t had a nosebleed in a while and then within a few hours I get a nose bleed?  Pretty ironic right? Well, that is exactly what kind of irony that has been happening to me lately. I get a new phone and my dad tells me not to drop it, but of course I do...

Filed under Columns

You’re probably wondering why I’ve gathered all of you here today. As you know, Thanksgiving is now behind us, which means it’s officially Christmas, which also means it’s time for the best part of the Christmas season: Christmas movies. One of the best things about Christmas movies is that there a...

‘Entitlements’ aren’t entitlements

Colin Roberts, Columnist

November 26, 2018


Filed under Columns

I do not like US Senate majority speaker Mitch McConnell. Specifically, I do not like that he wants to cut ‘entitlements,’ because the deficit soared to 779 billion dollars. Here’s why I do not like that. When Republicans talk about ‘entitlements,’ what they’re really doing is using tric...

What are new phones on the market actually offering?

Dillan Schorfheide, Assistant Sports Editor

November 26, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

If you did not know, I am not a phone savant or a technological designer in any way whatsoever. But I am starting to notice more and more that the new releases for phones are seemingly recycled products, with the only difference being a better camera. Seriously, every commercial I have seen recentl...

Take time for yourself during the holidays

Mercury Bowen, Entertainment Reporter

November 26, 2018


Filed under Columns, Opinions

It is easy to get swept up in all the hustle and bustle of the season. What with the holidays, finals, family gatherings and all kinds of other hullabaloo taking up time, one can forget that it is also important to take a moment for themselves. When one gets so caught up in others and the things the...
