  Science and history concur that in the beginning, the universe – with all of its irreplaceable laws and inner workings – was not created by man.   However, some innovators yielding influence today believe they can redefine and alter laws that have allowed the world to remain in relative...

The stigma surrounding mental health needs to stop

Samreen Siddiqui, Voices editor

October 27, 2017

  The subject of mental health has always been a topic that is hard for me to open up about.   Whenever I start to voice my opinion, I feel myself put this psychological wall up in order to conceal my true feelings about it.   I blame my hesitation to express my ideas on society’s n...

Stop using ‘like a girl’ as an insult

  I’ll never forget the time when I was 11 years old and my uncle taught me how to throw a football. “Rachel, don’t throw like a girl,” he said.   In the moment, without even thinking about it, I just acknowledged what he said and threw the ball back to him.   But in the back ...

  As you sit in the visiting stands of the Del Oro High School football stadium, you aren't able to see the appearance of the fans on the opposing side.   You can pick apart the main colors, black and gold in support of the Golden Eagles, but whether it's a rugged, stained and ripped t-shirt o...

Jennifer Leighton, GBHS principal, Guest Commentary

September 26, 2017

There’s a fairly recent attempt by the Tribe to poke fun at the perception that Granite Bay High School is the rich school and Del Oro is the farm school when we meet for football.  Neither is true.   Our students call this the “Rich Out.”  And although meant in jest, it actually  reinforc...

My friend and her family live in a small apartment whose previous inhabitants let mold grow so thick even after multiple rounds of bleach they still can’t get the stains out. She is also complimented on her trendy outfits and designer bags, and was once asked if she was rich. Sometimes people...

In only a few more days, I will be walking across a stage, receiving a (temporarily empty) diploma folder and taking in my last few moments at Granite Bay High School. There are officially 507 students in the class of 2017. For the past four years, I’ve spent most of my days seeing a new face fo...

Misunderstanding and ignorance leads individuals to misuse time, and leave them bargaining to the gods, or in search of myths like the fountain of youth.
