Anyone can get hacked, even me

Jenny Zhou, Visual Editor

November 17, 2014

On Saturday, October 11th, my mind was occupied with multiple choice questions and math formulas from the SAT. Little did I know that my life was being invaded in a way I had never imagined.

Beautiful Mess: Unplugging

Anna Ogilvie, In-Depth Editor

November 17, 2014

You look around the library and find your spot. 3 tables over, 2 back, and chair angled toward the center. Sheldon Cooper would be proud of you.

Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte is a seasonal favorite, with its lovely taste of pure pumpkin amazingness in the grande-sized white Solo cup with the classic green logo that looks like the Statue of Liberty.

October 28, 2014

You walk into the school 2 minutes after the tardy bell. Maybe you slept in because you don’t have a 1st period, or maybe you went to get coffee after that late night studying.

Junior Noah Snyder looks down at his phone, “I swear, he’s coming. Don’t worry. He’ll just be late, it’s typical Miles not to have his phone.” Soon enough, smiling sophomore Miles Snyder pokes his head into the room that the two brothers spend most of their morning in, the Ames High Choir...

October 21, 2014

With homecoming coming at us at full speed and with so many newcomers to dances, the idea of listing a few of the unspoken set of rules that apply to the Ames High homecoming dance seemed like a good idea.

October 21, 2014

I draw my left hand as a slightly misshapen blob.  Partly it’s because drawing accurate hands is the definition of living hell, but partly it’s because my hand actually looks like that.  I was born without fingers on my left hand, yet despite what many people seem to think, it doesn’t really...

Monica Gordillo-Herrmann, super-soccer mom, part-time business lecturer at ISU, is finally able to not worry about her 14-year old son missing the first half an hour of his school day. “[One morning, Felipe] was waiting for the bus, and the bus never came,” Gordillo said. “He had to come back...
