Autism is more than just a label

Carole Hodorowicz, Columnist

April 3, 2019

Adapt, accept, advocate. This is one of the many mantras repeated throughout April in honor of Autism Awareness Month. This is the lifestyle for one in 59 children and their families. This is something that needs to be recognized year-round, every day. Autism is not the piano prodigy or doctor...

Spring comes with multiple problems

Kate Rehwinkel, Columnist

April 2, 2019

Spring has sprung, and I for one am not happy. I would prefer fall or winter weather over spring and summer. I dread summer the most, but spring is a close second. I do like some days in spring that are the epitome of beautiful weather. For example, I prefer a partly sunny day in the 50s or 60s with...

Carry out your responsibilities on time

Andrew Paisley, Opinions Editor

April 2, 2019

One thing that truly bothers me is when people do not get things done in time. Of course, we all have those times where something pops up or there is an emergency. Those are understandable. When someone does not fulfill their commitments a number of times in a row, this poses a problem. You...

‘On My Block’ season 2 better than season 1

Jordan Boyer, Photo Editor

April 1, 2019

The following review contains spoilers for “On My Block” seasons one and two. “On My Block” yet again impresses me as reviewer. Season two took what made season one so memorable and built upon it tremendously. Season two dropped this past Friday on Netflix, and I spent most of the weekend binge ...

Smokers need to respect non-smokers

Karena Ozier, Columnist

April 1, 2019

When I go to the store or to a restaurant with my friends and family, I do not want to walk through a cloud of cigarette smoke before I enter the building. I can understand that it is not the easiest thing to stop smoking, but there should be an understanding between the people who smoke and the people...

Grieving at Walt Disney World: Part 1

Jackson Bayer, Columnist

April 1, 2019

I love Disney World—honestly though, who doesn’t? But while it may be the happiest place on Earth, it’s not all magic and rainbows. The following is an excerpt from my essay entitled “Waiting in Line at Disney World: A Grieving Process.” The second half of the essay will be published next Tuesday. Denial. There’s...

Will program cut fund border?

Dillan Schorfheide, Assistant Sports Editor

March 31, 2019

President Donald Trump’s administration said Saturday it intends to end foreign assistance programs for Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. On the surface, that move does not seem to imply more than what you and I can read it for at face value: They just will not send more aid to those countries, ...

Get rid of unnecessary ‘clutter’

Andrew Paisley, Opinions Editor

March 31, 2019

Sometimes in life you have to really evaluate what is important and what is not. I have had to do this a lot lately, and it includes determining whether or not certain people should be a part of my life. There are people in life who want to see you fail and thrive in knowing that your life is completely un...

Criminologists will love ‘Mindhunter’

Logan Raschke, News Editor

March 28, 2019

“Mindhunter” is a must-watch for deviant psychology education fans, serial killer documentary enthusiasts and any (borderline cliché) cop show lovers. David Fincher, the director of the cult classic film “Fight Club,” is directing a Netflix Original called “Mindhunter.” The show is ba...

Consider the third parties in politics

Jordan Boyer, Photo Editor

March 28, 2019

In a country ran by a traditional two-party system, the other political parties can be overlooked due to the dominance of the Democratic and Republican parties. It is commonplace for people to be affiliated with these parties because these are the well-established dominant parties Americans have followe...

Is it our job to recognize struggles?

Megan Keane, Columnist

March 27, 2019

I, unfortunately, know a ton people that will only offer help when there’s personal gain involved. And, yes, there’s always a little bit to gain personally when you help someone. You feel good that you did a good thing—or, at the very least, you feel useful. That’s not enough of a motivator for...
