With the new year upon us, many people like to make unrealistic goals pertaining to fitness. This could be losing 30 pounds in a month or working out every single day. I have somewhat held myself up to these harsh and far-fetched goals. Having done this before, I can tell you that it’s not healthy ...

Dear Editor, I thought that the newspaper was well written. The problem was that the topics weren’t engaging or interesting enough to me as a student. Me personally, I’m not as interested in the new administrators. The AC portion was sort of interesting but I would care more about what’s being d...

Dear Editor, I read ‘Nonla Burger: A Retro Sit-Down with A Modern Twist’ by Abigail Lindblade. I liked the article because it was about food of course.

Dear Editor, I have read the article, “The Good Boys of Norrix,” and I am confused as to the purpose of the article. The article was titled, “The Good Boys of Norrix,” but it did not describe anything noticeably “good” about the dogs. The title itself does not imply worth reporting; almost ev...

Dear Editor, I read Knights Speak in the newspaper. I liked how it included everyone’s opinions and didn’t put any bias. I like this because everyone should have a voice here.

Dear Editor, When reading mental illness in school and the unheard pleas for help I thought the article addressed the more taboo topics most people avoid talking about.

Dear Editor, I liked the article about teachers having and not having guns. I thought it was interesting to see the claims and argument they would have. I like the one saying teachers should not have guns because I agree with them. I like how they both had articles side by side like if it was a comp...

Dear Editor, I read the Knight’s Speak opinions about the walk protest. I really liked the answer choices, because they really captivated the thoughts of those who protested and of who opted-out. I know now that I opt-out for the same reason as others. But now that I read other opinions to protest...
