When I first joined The Web my sophomore year, I remember thinking to myself that when I wrote my senior column, it would be full of wisdom and would end up inspiring others and hopefully, bring some students to tears. Now that I am a senior and am writing my column, I have realized that I do not hav...

As I was beginning to write this article, I realized that there is not just one classroom that is the best. They all have different parts to them that make them the best, so I cannot write about just one classroom. I have narrowed down the classes to four finalists, and each room has a different aspe...

Skim milk, Ever since I was born, you’ve been there for me. Every cookie that needed to be dipped, every bowl of cereal, every lunch and dinner, you were there by my side. I can always count on you to be there for me when I’m dying of thirst. So many people misjudge you. They say you lack fla...

As long as I have lived in Ames, Jimmy Johns has always been the place to go. When people want a sub, they don’t hesitate to drive to the nearest JJs they can think of without a single thought of possibly going to Subway. There is a recent addition to the sub sandwich restaurants that are in Ames, a...

First appearing in 1990, IT was one of the most horrifying movies of its time. But as the years went by and technology got better, IT faded into the background and became the “classic horror film” that many people think of today. With so much hype, this movie had a lot pressure to be as unforg...

If you’ve ever been in the athletic office to talk to Judge, turn in a physical form, or pick up a form, you’ve probably had the pleasure of meeting Sally Matters, the athletic secretary here at Ames High.

Prom. A supposedly magical night that will be forever remembered by everyone who attends. But let's be real here. Prom is nothing more than an event that leaves students stressing over who to have as a date and what to wear. Don’t get me wrong, it is fun to get all glammed up and dance with friends, but ...

With many fast food restaurants in Ames, it can be hard to determine what place has the best meal. Putting burgers and chicken strips aside, I decided to figure out what fast food restaurant had the best fries. All I needed was $20 and an empty stomach, so I was good to go. Do to my budget, I only ...
