Staying Active During Quarantine

April 7, 2020

Last summer, my mom and I would walk around Lake Shawnee every Thursday morning. When we heard that school was moved to online for the rest of the year we realized that we could start this up again. Every Tuesday and Thursday morning for the past three weeks we have gone on a walk. We mostly have walke...

While everyone is in self-quarantine, we find ourselves having a lot of free time. So, I decided to watch Frozen 2 which blew my expectations out of the water. Not only is it worth the watch if you haven’t seen it, but it makes you laugh during this crazy time we are in right now. And if you haven...

The short story “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” was written by Ursula LeGuin in 1973 to show some insight to our capitalistic society. This story portrays a seemingly perfect utopian society with everything anyone can ever imagine. However, the one catch to this “flawless” city is a tortur...

Red Robin Review

Red Robin is the best place to get a well done burger! Their service is amazing, even if it gets busy all the time. The customer service is always great when I’m there, the workers always ask if everything is good or if I need another soda. Not much waiting for servers, because their servers are on the b...

Impossible Whopper Review

Hope Oswald, Writer

December 12, 2019

Being a vegan, especially in a town like Topeka, can be tough. While a few restaurants are beginning to include vegan options, many of these are ludicrously expensive and taste mediocre at best. There are barely any fast food options for vegan food, which can be annoying when you don’t feel like payi...

December 11, 2019

There are many children in the United States who live in foster care. They suffer silently, having little to no access to their parents and having to battle endless difficulties throughout their lives. Without the stereotypical, loving family, they have to rely on other adults for support when their b...

Life first appeared on Earth because of water. The human body uses water in all its cells, organs, and tissues to help regulate its temperature and maintain other bodily functions.

I go to Chick-Fil-A at least once a week and it’s the best thing ever! Their service is just amazing! I have never had a bad food item from any Chick-Fil-A location and never been disappointed. The workers there are so polite and I love it. They bring your food to the table and make sure everyth...

Olive Garden Review

Rachel Woodbury, Writer

November 22, 2019

A taste of Italy.  Olive Garden has been my favorite restaurant for as long as I can remember.  Along with their great American version of Italian food, they have extraordinary customer service. Most of us know the jokes about the waiter filling up our cups before they are even close to empty. Ho...

November 21, 2019

As the holiday season rolls around, I can’t help but think about the memories I have had during this wonderful time of year. One main memory that comes to mind is having to watch The Polar Express every single year at my elementary school, Wanamaker.  Did anyone else’s school gather them durin...
