March Madness players are like US presidents

Jackson Bayer, Columnist

March 25, 2019


Filed under Columns

March Madness is in full swing, and college basketball’s biggest stars are all making names for themselves on the sport’s biggest stage. While none of the players in the tournament are professionals yet (because God forbid they see any of the money the NCAA makes off of the tournament), experts and...

How to win the 2020 election

Dillan Schorfheide, Assistant Sports Editor

March 24, 2019

Trump 2020 is something he and his followers have already spoken about and anticipated, and honestly, his chances of taking the Republican ticket again are probably decent. But, as has been the case for the last year (especially it seems), Democrats are doing everything in their power to not only les...

Take a break, enjoy the spring

Andrew Paisley, Opinions Editor

March 24, 2019


Filed under Columns

One thing I love about spring is the fact that it seems to put me in so much of a better mood than I am in during fall and winter. I guess it is because the temperature is seemingly warmer, you are able to go outside without feeling like you are dying of frostbite and you can actually breathe without the...

Recently NBC San Diego has obtained information on a leaked database that contains information on journalists and immigration advocates/activists inside the United States and Mexico. According to the leak, this database is run by the United States Government and in some cases placed alerts on some of...

Do not use any clichés in your writing

Logan Rashke, News Editor

March 21, 2019


Filed under Columns

A cliché is a saying or idea that does have some meaning, but its value has been stripped away from it being overused in conversational communication. That is my personal definition of a cliché. An idiom, like “it’s raining cats and dogs,” can also be a cliché. Here’s an example of a cliché: All that g...

What will music sound like in 10 years?

Megan Keane, Columnist

March 20, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

I find myself wondering if I’ll like the music my kids listen to. I’ve recently began wondering about it again in light of the Jonas Brothers reunion. My sister and I forced my parents to go to—not one, but—two Jonas Brothers concerts. I’m sure they weren’t thrilled to listen to their albums...

We all have the power to be remarkable

Carole Hodorowicz, columnist

March 20, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

March is one of my favorite months of the year. The weather actually starts trying to figure itself out, there is an entire day dedicated to pie (or pi, depending on whether you are a mathematician or allergic to math like I am), and the sweet release of summer is even closer. And of course, the most...

Don’t let setbacks stunt your growth

Natalee Reynolds, Columnist

March 19, 2019


Filed under Columns, Opinions

The last couple of weeks have been tough, but they have taught me that no matter what I face, I’m tougher. Two weeks ago, my car brakes, gas and steering all went out while I was driving home from work. When it finally came to a stop, it had already shut off and would not start up again, so I got a ...

How to: filling NCAA tournament brackets

Jackson Bayer, Columnist

March 18, 2019


Filed under Columns

March is unquestionably, without a doubt, 100 percent the best month of the year. No, it isn’t because spring begins, or because of St. Patrick’s Day, or even because it’s Justin Bieber’s birth month. March is the best because of basketball. The past week has been full of college basketball’...

Here’s my ‘bad decision’ from spring break

Karena Ozier, Columnist

March 18, 2019


Filed under Columns

Now that spring break has come and passed, college students are left to reflect on the decisions that they’ve made. Some good… And most, not. My bad decision was not intentional. The much anticipated 12-hour drive back from my spring break destination in Texas proved to be quite a challenge. All al...

Family isn’t always supportive

Andrew Paisley, Opinions Editor

March 17, 2019


Filed under Columns

It truly is amazing how some of your own family members can be the ones that aim to bring you down. Unfortunately, I’ve experienced this tragedy practically my entire life with certain people in my family. I guess it really only got worse when I came out of the closet. These people thrive to make sure that ...

If you like soda, pop, taste Ski

Dillan Schorfheide, Assistant Sports Editor

March 17, 2019


Filed under Columns

The cultural divide between Eastern students from southern Illinois and northern Illinois has plenty of differences, but none bigger than soda. In reality, that is not the biggest difference, but it is certainly one that always happens to come up in conversation whenever students from the different are...
