The Mouse In My House Is A Welcome Guest

Mikaylie Sosnowski, Staff Writer

April 15, 2020

I’ve never understood why people are afraid of mice! As far as wild animals go, they’re the best one to have in your house. Snakes I get being scared of: they’re creepy, crawly, and they’ve got no arms or legs. Freaky! Spiders I definitely understand: they’ve got too many legs, too many eye...

The World is Ending

The World is Ending

Katherine Kregness, Website Editor

April 15, 2020

So the world is ending. This is not news. We are all very much aware. The real question is this: how are we all going to die? What will be the straw that breaks the camel's back? Will it be famine? Floods or droughts? Wildfires like the ones destroying Australia? Volcanoes and earthquakes? All very plaus...

Restricted is a Joke

Restricted is a Joke

Restricted study, honestly, is a joke. People have said when you walk in there and all of the students are either watching Netflix or on their phone. Every student I have talked to who has been in restricted says it’s not even a punishment. It is just an extra time to get work done or watch netflix ...

Where identity and music meet

Where identity and music meet

List all the Asian-American music artists you know. (That’s Asian-American. So cross it out if it’s k-pop, sorry). Cross them out if they’re male. Now cross them out if they’re half-white. I’d be surprised if you had more than three left. That’s how many match what I see as two large part...

Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems

Adam Khelah, Staff Writer

January 9, 2020

“Uncut Gems” is one of the best movies I’ve seen all year. Yes, it stars Adam Sandler, but don’t let that turn you away. He’s been in a lot of junk in recent years, but this is one of the best movies Sandler has starred in for awhile. Here he plays Howard Ratner, a jeweler crippled with gamblin...

Frozen 2: Can we just “Let it Go?”

Frozen 2: Can we just “Let it Go?”

Maneeya Leung, Staff Writer

January 9, 2020

I did not care about the plot of Frozen 2 nor did I understand it. Maybe my two experiences are related, but as a semi-intelligent viewer aged older than ten, I generally go into Disney movies expecting to know what’s going on. It was going to take much more than just magic to make a cohesive plot,...

Erasing the Past is a Waste of Time

Erasing the Past is a Waste of Time

Adam Khelah, Staff Writer

November 15, 2019

In this day and age, we are very motivated to bury the past of anything we deem unacceptable. Whether it be a celebrity, public figure, monument, or name. But I ask you: What’s the point? To bring justice? To help those harmed? To make the world a better place?  Yet, does it really do any of thes...

All the things wrong with our society

All the things wrong with our society

Baylee Brabender

June 7, 2019

There are so many things wrong with our society. I hate when people talk about things they hate all of the time. The reasons for why people do things, post things, and just live their  lives are ridiculous. I am so sick of it. I am so sick of social media. So sick of people trying to obtain the per...

OPINION: Hairspray won’t diversify the theatre department

OPINION: Hairspray won't diversify the theatre department

Funmi Banjoko, staff writer

November 3, 2018

This year the EPHS theater program has decided to tread into uncharted waters: diversity. The swinging 60’s Tony Award winning musical turned hit New Line Cinema film “Hairspray” is this fall’s musical, and as a certified black girl I am admittedly less than pleased. “Hairspray” follows...
