I’m insanely disappointed in Ames High students. I witnessed all the feedback from Joel and Shelby’s articles from last month’s edition of the WEB. There were people calling them out on twitter and instagram. On instagram, Joel’s article was accused of attacking the prom committee. Which is...

The quiet kid in the presentation group who put together the entire presentation by herself then watched as her partners took all of the credit. The Energizer Bunny, who ke...

Friends, Someone said once that all relationships end in either death or breakup. Whether marriages or friendships, this is assuredly true. The relationship might be unimportant, and the death might be decades away, but our time with people is fundamentally finite. It is this scarcity of life that...

The Outside World: Beyond the Ames Bubble

Christopher Jackson, Ames High Reporter, Columnist

February 23, 2014

During my sophomore year, one Ames High teacher claimed that we weren’t living in the real world. He claimed that Ames consists of a couple square miles, bordered by Boone County, Ada Hayden, I-35 and I-30, essentially in a bubble from the rest of the world. As one weekend this January showed me, that teacher was...
