Filed under *Showcase, Opinion

Skutt Catholic presents many excellent classes in all fields of study; however, some of the classes students must take in order to graduate are not always practical. Although classes such as art and Character Skills are valuable classes to take, they are not necessary for many careers. Learning h...

The Importance of Year Round Giving

Filed under Column, Opinion

The Christmas season brings so much joy, cheer, and special attention to those who are less fortunate. I find the desire to help during the holiday season one that stands a wonderful testament to our society. However, we the Flightline are tired of only acknowledging the marginalized in one season of...

In the age of the internet, most if not all information about colleges and universities can be found at the click of a button. There is an alternative, however: a college fair. A college fair is a gathering where prospective college students can meet face to face with admissions representatives from...

The Real Meaning of School Spirit

The Real Meaning of School Spirit

Clara Pohlman, Feature Editor

Filed under *Showcase, Opinion

I love Skutt Catholic and all that it promotes, encompasses, and reaches to achieve. However, the fact is that our school is majorly lacking in having a well-rounded sense of school spirit in elements other than cheering for athletic teams. We, The Flightline, are tired of recognizing one section of...

Online Shopping is Superior to In-Store

Filed under *Showcase, Opinion

Online shopping is probably one of the greatest advancements in modern day technology. I can literally shop anywhere I want as long as I have a device to access the internet. A major pro of online shopping is the amount of time you can save. What could take 20 minutes to drive to the mall, an hour...

My first experience in Omaha Fashion Week, Omaha's largest fashion show, was in February 2016 when I walked for Tirzah Beam, now Tirzah Crawford. Her line that year was based on the movie The Shining. The looks were pretty simple at the start, then towards the end of her line, they were more dra...

The Problem with Icebreakers

Filed under *Showcase, Opinion

Icebreakers aren’t bad in concept. Getting to know some of your classmates before the year starts is a good idea, and when many classes are group-project oriented — it could even be deemed necessary. However, the type of information typically revealed in such games is entirely worthless. At no...

Does anyone else remember the midnight premiere? The excitement of waiting until the earliest possible moment to see a long-awaited movie in a packed theater with other people just as dedicated as you. Now, you might get a somewhat full room with a considerable amount of empty seats. Premiers hav...

Buying objects is a part of everyday life. Pay for it, use it and hopefully throw the wrapper away. For too long, though, trash has been left in the commons and hallways of Skutt Catholic. While there are numerous culprits, the freshmen hallway seems to be the worst part of the school. Please, pick up...

Why Hard Work Exceeds Talent

Filed under *Showcase, Column, Opinion

Natural born talent can be the first step in becoming successful in any activity. However, hard work is what will allow a person to go above and beyond expectations. I’ll be the first to admit I’m not the most athletic person. P.E. was never my favorite class, and I was never the first to finish...

March Madness is a time where the entire country becomes avid college basketball fans, whether they have seen a game or not. These fans become glued to their TVs, smartphones or any device where they can become engrossed in the hype. The NCAA tournament needs to be expanded to 128 teams rather than 64...

No, edgyusernamehaver99, you really shouldn’t unleash that blurry photo of your thumb onto the world just so you can fill the rant-space below it with angst. Instagram, which began as a photo-centric social media platform, has spent the past few years devolving into nothing more than a strikingly convenient...
