Why Do We Keep Making Sequels?

December 17, 2018

It is no secret that sequels often times are a let down and sometimes sully the name of a franchise. Sequels often seem like a cash-grab from big production companies that want to get money from the succ...

   Writing utensils: they unite us, stimulate lively discussion among us, and even cause tensions between us. Every student has his or her preferences. After 3.5 long years of high school, I too hav...

Banning words, banning democracy

Luke Brizzolara, Business Manager

February 9, 2018

In late December, a report surfaced that the Trump administration banned the CDC from using a list of seven words, including “science-based”, “diversity”, and “transgender”. It was soon discovered that the Trump administration had nothing to do with the banned words and that this ban was self-imposed by officials in the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). According to sources, officials didn’t...

Craigslist cautions

Liam Barton, Reporter

February 9, 2018

You might have heard that when a car leaves the lot it will lose almost 20% of its value immediately. Well, luckily that applies to almost everything. Buying used items can be a great way to save money. Other websites like Ebay can have great deals and thousands of results, but there’s not too much quality control and you never get to see the product in person, so you could get scammed. Websites like Craigslist have all...

  Every year, new viral dances sweep the nation for a couple of months. Most fizzle out but some are immortalized forever. When adults think of dances they may think of the electric slide or the twist. Here, I highlight some of the best dances of the younger generation’s childhood, and some that are generally new to most people. These are all subjective of course, but not many people can argue that all of these...

Best Dance at Broughton

Jack Covington, Caps Confer Editor

February 23, 2017

We have three dances, all a great amount of fun, but if it were narrowed down to just only have one dance, which would you choose. Starting in the first quarter we have the Sadie Hawkins dance. Some may say Sadie Hawkins is the most fun. Sadie Hawkins is a laid back dance. No need for the boys to go out and be forced to find a tuxedo, bowtie, and cummerbund. “It is my favorite because I can just go in my closet and wear...

Should school start later?

Regan Curtis, News Editor

February 23, 2017

Sleep-deprived, caffeine-dependent balls of stress. We snooze in class, doze off during homework, and sleep in past noon on weekends. These are the words that describe the stereotypical modern teenager. With sleep deprivation becoming more prevalent among teens thanks to early school start times, this stereotype is only becoming more accurate. I feel the effects of Broughton’s 7:25 a.m. start time every day. Over time...

Perfect presents

Stuart Holmes, Entertainment Editor

December 18, 2016

Ho Ho Ho! It’s the most wonderful time of the year again. With the Christmas season back in town it is time to talk about my personal favorite topic, Christmas gifts. While these gifts differ from grade to grade, person to person, something almost everyone can agree on is that there is nothing better than coming downstairs to see that Santa Claus has taken a bite of your cookies, drinken your milk, and left you a few presen...
