Thanksgiving. Family and friends all over the country will be sharing meals and smiles as they evaluate everything they are blessed with. It’s the time of year where the half-empty cup perspective flips into half-full. In my life, I have celebrated 15 Thanksgivings. Plus even more with my parents be...

A family that loves me for who I am. The people that attend the EHS’ annual Veterans Day celebration, Nov. 10, made me realize I take al...

Last night’s election determined so many things beyond who our next president will be. For example, nine states had marijuana measures on the ballot. At least seven of those passed with one measure yet to be determined. Arizona voters did not legalize marijuana while four of those states made medical...

On October 21st, Fox 2 News came to EHS to host a pep rally before our first playoff game against Lindbergh. Although I'm sure they had good intentions, the final result was something absolutely pointless and not journalistic. If you disagree with me then I encourage a letter to the editor explaining...

A free press is the cornerstone of a democracy. I strive to be an ethical, independent journalist in an age where questionable practices haunt professional journalists. I have way more bad journalism role models than good. Brian Williams has been caught lying to the American people on multiple occa...

“In second place with 155 points, the Juniors!” These eight words filled me with joy as I sprinted out with my peers to hoist the historic trophy over the crowd of storming people. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning opening a present I’ve wanted for years. As senior class president, I con...
