  “Man of the Woods” is Justin Timberlake's fifth solo album and 11th studio album so my biggest fear when listening to it was whether or not Timberlake could make good music while keeping the music new and fresh. Well, he didn’t start off too hot as the first song on the album, “Filthy...

When our administrators and teachers discuss issues in teenage culture, whether it be in a classroom or assembly, they talk about things like substance abuse, mental health and bullying. But they are forgetting something crucial. They barely touch on the topic that 44 percent (90/204) of KHS students...

About 4,000 years ago, Babylonians made promises to their gods that at the start of the new year, they would pay their debts and pledge their loyalty. If they kept their promises, the gods would reward them the following year. Now, most aren’t as serious about their resolutions as the ancient Baby...

The day I found an entire, unopened, king-size Kit-Kat bar in the trash was the day I realized we had a problem. After roughly an hour digging through the hazardous waste dump that is KHS’s trash, I found it lying helpless in a puddle of lumpy yogurt and rotting orange peels, discarded by a no-doubt ...

In a meeting room next to a quaint local bookshop, with their notebooks out and pens scribbling, 20 women sit around a table all with the same goal in mind: to stop new legislation in Missouri that would allow guns in hospitals, public colleges and universities, daycares, places of worship and bars.

Nothing in this world is a terrible as the penny. It seriously makes no sense. Imagine the longest Schnucks line that you can, with you at the back.
