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,...

PSA: wash your nasty hands

Jack Kirk, Staff Writer

February 20, 2019


Filed under Opinion, Perspectives

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...

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...

Jack Kirk, Staff Writer

February 6, 2019


Filed under Opinion, Perspectives

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...

It wasn’t time to cut Koetter

Macy McClintock, Sports Editor

As a beaming Bucs fan and aggressively passionate feminist, I've found myself morally torn throughout this season. And it's left me with a huge dislike for Jameis Winston. Yes, he served his suspension, yet he continues to make wrong life choices on top of not playing up to the hype that continuously...

As an emotionally exhausted Bucs fan, I am relieved that they moved on from Dirk Koetter and signed Bruce Arians as their new head coach. It was time for a fresh start and Arians is perfect for the job. History shows that Arians can lead a team and produce wins, as he only had one losing season in...

I would label myself a sports fanatic. Baseball, basketball, football, hockey- whatever the sport, I've most likely attempted to play it and continue to watch it on a professional level. Along with the games themselves, I enjoy following the athletes of my favorite teams as well. I look up to them, and...
