    It’s obvious that school dress codes have become a hot topic in the past few years, and they only become more popular as the school years carry on. However, it appears  the intentions behind them have definitely changed.   After reading stories pertaining to teachers being accused of sexual harassmen...

  Editor’s note: Anderson’s commentary was inspired by the book “Blue Like Jazz” by Donald Miller.  If you were to walk down the street and ask a handful of people about their thoughts on Christianity, each one would have a different response.   Some might be faithful, others ...

  It has always been in my nature to question authority, whoever it may be. Whether it’s my soccer coach, parents or teachers.   Even though an authority figure says something is right or wrong, it is our job as a society to question it and when we do, we can truly be educated.   I re...

 It’s 9:02 p.m. on Oct. 18. I’m baking chocolate chip banana muffins for my journalism class, my mom’s cleaning the kitchen and my dad’s watching a documentary about the Obamas.

  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

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

Rachel Nimtz, Writer

October 20, 2017

  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...

Guest Commentary: The ‘Rich Out’ broke my heart

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...
