The Best and Worst of Super Bowl LI

Every February, American television is taken over by the Super Bowl frenzy. Some people get swept up by the game: they criticize the referees, yell at the tv, and go crazy when their team scores a touchdown.  I interviewed Middle Schoolers and asked them, “Did you enjoy the game, or not?”

The Truth Behind Fairy Tales

By Helena F.

Everything about a fairy tale seems magical and perfect. The birds are always singing a  “song” or the girl falls in love with a prince and they live happily ever after. Or the girl gets married and rides off in a silver carriage into the sunset with her prince charming. Although, are fairy tales as innocent as they seem? Or are they much more gruesome than anyone could ever imagine?

Are You From Nothing, Arizona? Funniest Names of Cities in the U.S.

Do you live in Nothing, Arizona? You probably think it’s a joke, but at one point people lived there. There are over 50 completely absurd names of cities and towns in the United States of America, and even more overseas. Some were just odd, some not funny enough to make the cut, and I wasn’t allowed to put a few names on the list because they were… a little too off color (not in my mind, but the advisors’ minds).  I pulled out fifteen or sixteen town names and knocked it down to the ten that made the list following.  Here they are…

Cafeteria Food: Yah or nah

By: Maddie Daniel and Luke Lendler

“Cafeteria food is pretty overpriced,” said every student at GFS. Middle School students have many thoughts on the cafeteria, such as the long lines, the expensive food and the good sushi always being gone. Middle Schoolers agree that it could use some improvements.

Editorial: Does Middle School Matter in Life?

Being a student in middle school, it can be difficult to grasp the fact that high school seems right around the corner. Many middle schoolers ask, “does what we do in middle school affect our high school and college experience?”—and in the bigger picture, our life?

MS Dances=Tribal Warfare?

By: Dean D.

Every trimester, the adults make our lives more horrible, by making cups of chips, throwing together some candy, hiring a DJ, and rearranging the Smith Gym. What fun. Of course, our adolescent brains turn this into a total storm of gossip. If you are seen within three feet of someone from the other gender, the chance of you hearing the end of it is as much as the chance of a gopher ruling the world with an army of stormtroopers and star destroyers.

What is Trump’s Appeal?

Why did Donald Trump win the 2016 US election?  He hardly looks qualified for it with no history in politics and how he suddenly changed from voting Republican to Democratic multiple times (He was Republican from ‘87 to ‘99, ‘09 to ‘11 and from ‘12 to present, Democratic until 1987 and again during 2001 to 2009, he was independent from 1999 to 2001 and 2011-2012.)  However, since the election is really based on what the people say, the question isn’t why did he win, it is who made him win.

Less Is More

A common problem that America has been facing is obesity. And honestly, I understand why. With a fast food restaurant or corner store at every turn, it is much easier to get a cheeseburger for one dollar and right nearby then a salad at a cafe for 10, where you have to walk a while to get it too. But one thing I’ve noticed in America’s food industry is proportions. And the large amount that they come in too.
