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...

When I was six, I decided I wanted to be a journalist. While others dreamt of careers as princesses and Broadway stars, I envisioned myself on the sidelines as a sports reporter. I had grown up watching Erin Andrews and Leslie Visser, two influential female sports broadcasters who helped establish women’s...

Opinion: Club days are trivial and a waste of time

Opinion: Club days are trivial and a waste of time

Once a month, Robinson High School decides that the first Monday does not matter, so we have a club day. I feel that club days are the biggest waste of time that the school partakes in. We should just have a normal day and completely forget that club days ever existed. The most senseless part of club...

Many students are oblivious to things happening in our country on a governmental, social, and environmental level. But, there are some things that are too important to be neglected.

It's impossible to go throughout your day without hearing something offensive, especially in high school. Ever since I can remember, I've heard people make holocaust jokes, gay jokes, and school shooting jokes like they were nothing, then brush them aside, until another shooting happens and they post...

I'm an average student. I get good grades, I take an elective, and I try in school; the only difference is that I happen to have a heart disease. When I was born I was diagnosed with a life-long heart disease, and since then a dozen other things have been added on top of that diagnosis. Because of my...

Annotations are a key to understanding

Amelia Foster, A&E Editor

Filed under Opinion, Perspectives

Going through any Robinson hallway, you'll hear IB students gripe about the amount of annotations they have to do. The constant complaints have created a layer of fear and general distaste towards such a simple act as annotations. When living in such a negative state of mind you'll only ever be able...

The dress code at football games is too harsh

Alyssa Acosta, Staff Writer

Filed under Around the School, Opinion, Perspectives

Why does Robinson feel the need to be one of only high schools in Hillsborough County to have such a strict dress code at football games? Is Robinson scared of the bad reputation the school might earn if girls dress too provocatively and student get too wild? But Friday nights are the one day out of...

I've always been optimistic, but my desperation for change has driven me to the point of hopelessness. After the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012, I thought there would be change. After the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando in 2016, I thought there would be change. After the Las Vegas shooting in 2017,...
