Movies about serial killers don’t tell the whole truth

Movies about serial killers don’t tell the whole truth

Amelia Foster, A&E Editor

May 10, 2019

The constant stream of media about serial killers lately is exhausting. Everywhere I look, there's another movie or documentary about the "disturbing yet genius mind" of some serial killer from the late 20th century. But these people weren't geniuses whom we should praise, they were creeps who benefited...

School bathrooms aren’t porta poties

School bathrooms aren’t porta poties

Anna Woodward, Staff Writer

March 29, 2019

I can say with confidence that almost everyone at Robinson has gone to the bathroom, seen an insanely long line, sighed and, much to their dismay, waited because they had to. As a person who doesn't really like to use the school bathrooms unless I have to, it's simply annoying to go and have to wait...

Makeup culture only harms women

Makeup culture only harms women

Your teenage years are supposed to be the best of your life, a time when you find yourself. Yet, because of makeup culture constantly forcing beauty standards upon young girls, all too many of them are losing themselves. Makeup culture is the culture surrounding society's expectations of female beauty--specifically,...

Football is not the only sport

Football is not the only sport

Jack Kirk, Staff Writer

March 6, 2019

Before I begin, let me just say that football is by far my favorite sport. I love watching it whether it be two high school teams or two professional teams. A lot of my peers probably feel the same way about it and love attending high school football games. The problem lies in the other sports in high...

PSA: wash your nasty hands

Jack Kirk, Staff Writer

February 20, 2019

Growing up I was always taught to wash my hands after I used the bathroom, as I am pretty sure almost everyone else was. So I am absolutely perplexed at the amount of times I have seen someone use the bathroom and walk straight out without even looking at the sink. The Center of Disease Control recommends...

Vaccines shouldn’t be optional

Vaccines shouldn’t be optional

Anna Woodward, Staff Writer

February 13, 2019

If you're a person who for some reason can't get a vaccine because of medical issues like allergies, then this isn't for you. But if you are a person with the resources and the money to get a vaccine, but you don't want to because you "don't feel like it" or because it'll "give your child autism", then...

Drop cards are going to the wrong students

Jack Kirk, Staff Writer

February 6, 2019

Robinson has a system where students who get honor roll during one grading period get a card to drop one assignment in three classes during the next quarter. Now call me crazy, but if you get honor roll, you probably do not need the extra boost in your classes. The kids who are close to honor roll but...

January 23, 2019

The razor company  Gillette recently put out a controversial commercial that tackled various aspects of toxic masculinity, such as sexual harassment and violence at a young age.
