Society decides to dictate our self-esteem. It likes to manipulate us and twist our conceptions, contort our standards, warp our values. This is common knowledge, but people need to have respect for others’ beliefs. Period. However, there are misconceptions. Respect doesn’t mean approval of the oppos...

Don’t hate on baseball: slide to third, not conclusions

Rachel St. Louis, Creative Writing Editor

April 29, 2019

Calling my favorite sport “slow” won’t offend me, because I know watching baseball trains a person to be patient. Of course, not everyone has that diligence. Things tend to get tense in the last few innings. But when people tell me straight to my face that “baseball is soooo boring,” I need to d...

Whether it is blaming games for violence, anti-social activity or the dances created by the games, gaming has always been criticized by the media in one way or another. Addiction to gaming is no different, with it being scattered across articles and blogs all over the internet warning parents that g...

Nobody stops learning. Throughout our lives, we are always the student. No matter what profession you may go into, no matter your status, you are always learning and you should always be asking questions. Teachers, this includes you too. So what questions could teachers be asking themselves to ...

I get to class early and sit down. I see a small, about 5’7” figure approach me. This figure is foreign to me. I don’t recognize it. As it gets closer I start to make out some facial features. It’s him, it’s Tyler VanAvery. But it is not THE Tyler I know. Something is missin...

Ok, so as a kid who wants to go into art in college I’m pretty mad and upset right now. Some of the art classes I was looking forward to taking may not run next year. I plan to take as many art classes as humanly possible before I graduate, and due to the fact that kids are either scared to take art classes after basic or just have no interes...

This writer of this article has chosen to remain unnamed due to the sensitive nature of this topic. I’m sitting at the dinner table, and as I lift my fork to take a bite, my mother makes a casual comment about calories. The scoreboard in my head illuminates. 75 for the pasta. 65 for the sauce. 31 for the green beans. Total of 171. Far too much. ...

January 10, 2019

The Mack Plaque pep rally this past fall might’ve been the worst in LHS history. This event leading up to the most anticipated weekend of the year for Lancer athletics lacked spirit and put many students in extremely uncomfortable situations. But now, five months later, the repercussions of this fail...

One guy’s response to ‘rape culture’ article recently published in Lancer Spirit magazine

Chris DeWolf, Reporter

December 13, 2018

I lived in a bubble. A bubble constructed of willful ignorance, of social normality and simultaneously social isolation. But I also live in a world where sexual harassment is more common than I ever thought. But there's one difference between me and most of the other people who want to approach thi...
