Addressing the Unaddressed

Addressing the Unaddressed

Maddie Mollner, Staff Reporter

May 15, 2017

A theatrical performance’s main focus is, undeniably, to entertain. Another focus that is more often overlooked is to spread a message, to create an awareness inside the viewers that was not present before. Using the arts to spark consciousness about a particular subject is a highly effective way to...

Turns Out, You Really Should Study for Those AP Exams

Turns Out, You Really Should Study for Those AP Exams

Tom Hermanek, Features Editor

May 8, 2017

Like many stories of bad decisions go, it seemed like a good idea at the time. Back in February, I had the chance to take an AP Psychology exam, an opportunity to earn a college credit that would be nearly universally accepted. Since I was already dual enrolled for the psychology course through th...

This Cat Obtained Immortality, and So Can You!

Peter Quinn, Opinion Editor

Suppose you place a cat in a box with a device that will release a poisonous gas at a random moment, killing the cat (Theoretically, of course. No cats were harmed in the writing of this article). After some time passes, you open up the box. Now the question arises: is the cat dead or alive when you...

How I Failed College Before Even Graduating High School

How I Failed College Before Even Graduating High School

Sam Wiegand, Sports Editor

May 8, 2017

It's important to always take advice with a grain of salt, I learned this the hard way. I was told to take AP classes to get some college credits early, instead I took actual college classes prior to my senior year. Unfortunately, following my brief stint of classes, I'm on academic probation at Metrop...

The Life of A Teenage Library Employee

The Life of A Teenage Library Employee

Lily Yates, Quintessence Copy Editor

May 1, 2017

I always knew that I'd do whatever it took to avoid getting a job in food service in high school. Fast food and waiting jobs are high-paying, pretty straightforward, and heck, they hire sixteen year-olds - so I can see what makes students often choose dim steakhouses or drive-thru windows. Though...

What High School Never Taught Me

What High School Never Taught Me

Molly Gubbels, Entertainment Editor

May 1, 2017

Eleven days. Eleven short days stand between me and the satisfaction that, after four years of blood, sweat and especially tears, I will be moving on to college. An approximate 1,460 days have passed in preparation for the night that I receive my diploma and head confidently into the unknown world of...

Big Names Feature in the 1st Round, but Then Disappear

Bob Killgore, Posters Coordinator

May 1, 2017

It's that time of year again as NFL teams grade prospects and determine what college athletes can help their team win the coveted Lombardi trophy. The first round of the draft is filled with gems and superstars athletes, like Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers in the draft's past. This first round draft...

A Pro(m)posal: Next Year, Reschedule Prom

Hope Stratman, Copy Editor

May 1, 2017

Last Saturday at 10:30 PM, I was watching my long dress flare out as I spun to an irresistibly upbeat song. Last Saturday at 11:30 PM, I was unraveling the difference between enthalpy and entropy. The notoriously difficult AP tests, which cover material from the whole year and require several...

One Question Becomes Difficult to Ask

One Question Becomes Difficult to Ask

Sam Klemme, Staff Reporter

April 24, 2017

It's that time of year again. A time where people create puns to ask someone to prom. Each “promposal” is documented and out on twitter or facebook. Why can't this just be a simple question anymore? Promposals have become too ceremonial and intimidating. With social media becoming a dominant method...

Newspaper Sucks

Newspaper Sucks

Peter Quinn, Opinion Editor

April 24, 2017

Some may think that being allergic to something like pollen is odd, but not much is stranger than the fact that I am “allergic” to newspaper. The most ironic part is that I am part of newspaper, but luckily Skutt Catholic no longer has a physical copy, or I would be done for.   Now, I...

I Replaced My Sister and My Closest Friends With a Mule

I Replaced My Sister and My Closest Friends With a Mule

Maria Miller, Birdfeed Editor

April 24, 2017

I’ll admit it; I swapped out the three most important people in my life with a mule named Shoelace. Now don't get me wrong, I didn’t literally exchange three people for an animal like some medieval bartering system, but they were the direct cause of my impulsive purchase and trek down to Oklahoma. A cou...

Opinion: Nebraska’s Absurd Age of Majority

Tom Hermanek, Features Editor

April 24, 2017

At age 18, you're old enough to fight, and possibly even die, defending your country. But according to Nebraska State Law, you're too young to buy a lottery ticket. You're also too young to enter into a legal contract or change your name without your parents' permission. In 47 states, the legal a...
