When I realized that this was the last article of the year my mind came to a bit of a standstill. What I should write about was a question that bounced around in my head for a while. Then the rough draft was due, then the final draft, and here on this Sunday night as I sit down to write I still don't...

El Mezcal: An Inside Look

El Mezcal: An Inside Look

James Keeley, Opinion/Editorial Editor

May 2, 2016

  Nothing screams authentic Mexican food quite like Norfolk, Nebraska. At least, that's what came to my mind as the 2016 State Journalism team stood around dumbfounded as lunchtime crept around the corner. El Mezcal was our third choice for lunch, (the first two were eliminated due to poor ...

When Nate Maher wakes up in the morning to a complimentary breakfast of waffles, coffee and muffins, it's not just because his mother cares deeply about creating a healthy morning routine. You see, Nate is living the grandiose lifestyle we all dreamed of back in good ‘ole 2005 when life was si...

I wasn’t aware a part of me existed that could work that hard until I was being paid to do it.

It took me about four minutes to form this first sentence. As I thought of how to begin this article, coincidentally my mind drifted because of the very topic I was writing about.

Snow Day Shenanigans

February 8, 2016

Is there anything in the world better than a day off school? Most likely yes, but days off are pretty far up there. Couple that with a hefty amount of snow and the possibilities are endless. As most of you are probably aware, on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week Omaha was hit with a sort of blizzard. ...

Wintertime Sadness

Wintertime Sadness

James Keeley, Op/Ed Editor

February 1, 2016

Nowadays, dull gloomy days only seem to be followed by bitter, prolonged nights. It is the endless pit of nothingness after the holidays called the third quarter. Classes seem relentless and summer appears to be eons away. All of this is enough to make even the most optimistic people downtrodden, but unbe...

At the beginning of this school year, I wrote a little piece about how a man named Donald Trump decided to run for president.

A trip from Omaha to Naples to experience true Neapolitan pizza would cost around $2,400, and that's just for airfare. A much more convenient option would be to drive down to Dante Ristorante, located in the Shoppes at Legacy at 168th and Center, and get a perfect taste of Neapolitan cuisine. The r...

Our Fascination with Fright

October 26, 2015

A loud bang in the middle of the night, a streetlight flickers, someone screams. Your heart is racing, and although all this is happening on the silver screen, your brain reacts as if it's happening to you. Our fascination with fright goes deeper than popcorn and candy however; people get scared because...
