Why Fantasy Football Is a Waste of Time

Why Fantasy Football Is a Waste of Time

Bob Killgore, Sports Editor

September 15, 2017

As the start of a new NFL season begins, three things are for certain: the Browns will stink, the Patriots are Super Bowl favorites, and everyone will start or join a fantasy football league. In 2017, there are 59.3 million people playing fantasy sports in the US and Canada. Avid football fans and casual...

Ask anyone with an athletic background, and they'll tell you that cheerleading isn't a sport. To some extent, they're right. Standing on the sidelines yelling “Go team!” doesn't require that much skill. However, we, the cheerleaders of Skutt Catholic, are tired of being labeled as just a team th...

I've heard the word ‘genius’ used to describe students with straight A’s or 36’s on the ACT. However, I've also heard it attributed to Picasso and Mozart. Who’s to say what intellect truly is? In its most basic definition, intelligence is defined as “the ability to acquire and apply knowle...

Wanna hear a joke? Sleep. Yeah, I don't get it either... With life being both exciting and ephemeral, it's disconcerting to hear how highly most people regard sleep. There's nothing less productive than habitually putting on special garments, lying on a mat, and then pretending to be unconscious...

Realizing the Importance of Opportunity

Realizing the Importance of Opportunity

Alaina Anderson, Op/Ed Editor

August 30, 2017

I've always known what I wanted my profession to be. While the other kids listed off policeman, teacher or doctor, I decided I wanted to be a cardiothoracic surgeon specializing in pediatrics.   Until recently, that dream seemed distant and unattainable in the present moment. However, I was able to...

Teachers’ Lectures Are More Than They Seem

Teachers’ Lectures Are More Than They Seem

Emma Brisbois, Copy Editor

August 4, 2017

If I asked a group of 25 people if they thought that they'd be smarter in ten years than they are now, chances are high that most, if not all, would say yes. Yet somehow most of us, at this ripe high school age, tend to brush off the opinions of many of the people older than us. Teachers are here to t...

I finally did it. After numerous attempts and threats, the end of my Newspaper career has come. It took almost as long as it took me to quit Taco Bell, but thankfully I did it myself this time, instead of having a friend impersonate me (thanks Gretchen). In the two and a half years I've been on staff,...

My childhood was sitting on the floor with her by my side. She'd peel grapes, I'd pop them in my mouth like a little bird. I'd smell the flowers in the fabrics of her floral print homemade dresses, thinking the scent of her perfume was the scent of the silken petals on her clothing. I'm taking...

The last three days of my senior year are laid out before me and suddenly everything is coming to an end. Soon I'll clean out my locker and finish up my last few finals and, unfortunately, I'll say my final goodbyes to Skutt and the people within it. With that in mind, my final article goes out to each...

Boats: Are They Just Water Cars?

Boats: Are They Just Water Cars?

Sam Wiegand, Sports Editor

May 15, 2017

Using the correct logic, anyone can prove anything. This is evident if you ever listen to unintelligent people talk about, well, anything. I decided for my final article as a member of the Skutt Catholic Flightline staff, I wanted to prove this. So, I am going to prove how a boat is not only a water ...

My freshman year, I had decided that I wanted to just get through my first year of high school and maybe do a few sports. I had always thought about trying out a choir, but I didn't decide until the end of freshman year when I tried out for show choir. This decision has changed my high school career...

Walking down the trodden halls of Skutt Catholic for the last few times is a bittersweet moment. Each senior has their own exciting direction moving ahead, but looking back at the past four years also reveals their uniquely individual high school experience. As seniors begin to make their biggest cha...
