Famous Last Words

Famous Last Words

Molly Gubbels, Entertainment Editor

April 24, 2017

They say you can't judge a book by its cover, but you can judge it by its words. Whether it be a person, a movie, a favorite novel or a play, the things that we often find to be most interesting are what the people say. About two years ago, I started compiling a list of all of my favorite quotes and it'...

13 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Watch Netflix’s New Show

Alaina Anderson, Staff Reporter

April 24, 2017

After staring aimlessly at my bedroom ceiling unable to fall asleep, I decided to occupy myself with a wander through Netflix. I had heard everyone was raving about their new original series 13 Reasons Why, so I figured I would watch one episode because, let’s be honest, I had nothing better to do....

Seahawk Fan’s First Experience of Seattle

Bob Killgore, Posters Coordinator

April 17, 2017

Once I heard that the national high school journalism convention was being held in Seattle this year, I was ecstatic. Ever since 2010, when Russell Wilson joined the Seahawks, I have been a fan of them and desired to travel to Seattle for an extended period of time to truly be a part of the Seahawk's...

Hot Dog Drama

Hot Dog Drama

Nessa Woosley, Staff Morale Editor

April 3, 2017

Hot dogs are a beloved American classic with a new perspective: sandwich. The debate over whether a hot dog is a sandwich or not has become a highly controversial topic at Skutt Catholic. Despite various arguments, I believe hot dogs are just as much a sandwich as a Peanut Butter and Jelly. A hot...

As I watched the closing seconds of the Butler versus North Carolina last Friday, I went upstairs to get my hat to play basketball in my front yard. I was angry and frustrated with Butler's loss because they are my favorite college basketball team. To get over the loss and keep my mind off it, I sho...

A 4.0 GPA Doesn’t Mean Success

Peter Quinn, Opinion Editor

March 27, 2017

All throughout our schooling careers, we are drilled with the idea that doing our best in school should be our most important priority, so it would seem counterintuitive to say that putting all your effort into school would not get you very far in life. Given that I am an 18-year-old high school student...

March Sadness

March Sadness

Sam Wiegand, Sports Editor

March 20, 2017

Once a year in the spring a large quantity of the population gathers around and fills out a piece of paper hoping things finally go their way. No, this isn't tax day, this is March Madness. With the sheer fact that this event can, in this instance, be almost misidentified as tax day helps to prove an ev...

How to Be Alone

How to Be Alone

Lily Yates, Quintessence Copy Editor

March 13, 2017

After another call ending with a voicemail greeting, I made up my mind. It was Thursday night, and everyone was at work, play practice, or studying. So I put on my favorite outfit, grabbed my keys, and headed to the movie theater; something surprisingly few high schoolers can say they've experienced...

Jeopardizing Your Life Has Never Been So Relaxing

Jeopardizing Your Life Has Never Been So Relaxing

Peter Quinn, Opinion Editor

March 13, 2017

It would seem odd for someone who lives in a state home to the Great Plains to have such a passion for an activity that involves a very steep and long incline, but I have loved skiing my entire life. I have been skiing for 14 years (ever since I was four), and it is an experience that I would highly...
