Column: T.V. title sequences evolve

Megan Ivey, Staff Reporter

April 6, 2017

It used to be the first thing you would hear as you clicked on the T.V. Saturday morning. With a bowl of cereal on your lap, you pushed the channel number on the remote by memory, sat back and settled in for your favorite cartoons. You know it was about to begin with the familiar song. For me,...

February 23, 2017

When I was in middle school, my best friend created a monthly dare. She would go to the condiment table in the lunchroom, pick up a napkin full of jalapenos, the spiciest food we could get at school, and place them before us. “Eat it,” she said to me. The tale-tell sign of childhood – someon...

It’s senior portrait week at Eastern, which means the journalism department is full of soon-to-be graduates in their best attire. While we had the 2017 senior class handy, the Warbler Yearbook staff initiated a project. In addition to the professional portraits, we wanted to have a little fun by opening...
