President Trump should not censor government research

Facts matter. In a political climate in which politicians’ use of ‘alternative facts’ is rampant, it is necessary for the electorate to be well-informed on important issues. That is why the estimated $473 billion the U.S. government spends on research is so important. Spread across a variety of agencies, research on everything from the economy and...

Shoulders shaking with each sporadic fit of violent coughing, he mentally braces himself for a miserable day of school, which he, despite his physically weak condition, instinctively feels forced to attend because it’s just too hard to miss school and keep up.  High school students of...

True Food Kitchen

“Healthy” and “natural” are the first adjectives that pop into my mind when I think of True Food Kitchen. The wooden brown and dark green interior decor and the dim lights hanging above tables gave the restaurant a calm and centered atmosphere.

TPHS should add a mid-level Honors English class for juniors and seniors

Advanced Placement classes were created to offer students who were genuinely interested in a subject like, say, chemistry, an avenue through which to pursue that interest. Unfortunately, that idealistic view has been generally lost on the students at TPHS, many of whom often take multiple AP classes to make themselves more competitive in the college admissions race rather than to learn each of those part...
