As I see it: dare to be different

By Patty Juliuson, Columnist I was going to write a little article about why I have a broom in my shower, but I got distracted watching people, so you’ll just have to live wondering.

Neuenschwander honored as Mace Bearer

Creepy CGI babies, mythologically-incorrect vampires and fights

By Baker Pitts, staff writer What do creepy CGI babies, mythologically incorrect vampires and an admittedly awesome-turned-disappointing fight scene have in common? If you said Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2, then you are correct! I had the pleasure of seeing the end of the Twilight saga over the break. Now, let me preface this article by stating that I have ...

Confession time: Twilight Breaking Dawn, Part Two

By Ronna Fisher, assistant editor Confession time: I love Twilight. I have been to every midnight premiere since the book series became a movie series. I wasn’t always a fan, though.

By Ashleigh Buchanan, staff writer Webster’s dictionary defines fanatic as, “marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion.” We all know people who show “excessive enthusiasm” about their favorite sports teams.
