Kids these days have the best toys

I miss how large the world seemed to be and how the only thing that mattered was what you were going to do that day. I fondly recall playing outside, causing havoc on my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle tricycle, having sword fights with my green,…

Letter to the Editor: Israeli government has a right to protect people

The article that ran in Feb. 13 issue of The Scout about American and Israeli relations with Arab countries surrounding Israel was poorly researched and written. If you want to write an article about how you hate Valentine’s day or how you believe student-athletes don’t…

Ruckus needs support, funding

A terrible thing happened to me last week. I woke up at my usual time about 9 a.m., climbed down my rickety ladder and plopped into my computer chair. Stirring my laptop’s mouse, I called up the screen prepared to listen to some “wake-up” tunes.…

Spare me your ‘25 things’ on Facebook

After flipping through TIME magazine for about an hour trying think of things to write my column on, I stumbled on something golden. It was an article in which a columnist wrote about the “25 things” notes on Facebook. She went through a few notes…
