  • Seniors’ school days come to an end

    After four years of hard work, the graduating class of 2012 finally gets to leave behind Los Alamos High School and start a new life. The following three seniors took time to reflect on the past year and their future.
    For Elizabeth Brug, leaving Los Alamos is kind of a welcome thought. Brug was born in Los Alamos and has lived here all her life.
    “My sisters and I were all born in the same hospital room and I’m ready to move on,” Brug said.
    Senior year allows for time to complete college applications and to do service projects and other activities that demonstrate leadership and organizational skills.

  • Ask Alex: Why do songs get stuck in your head?

    Music is a powerful medium. So powerful that it has the ability to claw its way through your ear canal and burrow itself deep inside your brain. At this point, there’s no escaping its clutches.
    The only way you can remove a song is by having another song fight its way inside you and wrestle the other song for control. So you have some power. You can choose whether you want to hum One Direction’s “You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful,” or whistle “Boyfriend” by Justin Bieber.
    At first, the song isn’t bad. You have just heard it for the first time, its catchiness making you tap your toes and bob your head.

  • James Dean’s legend lives on

    “That guy’s got to stop. He’ll see us.” Those were the last words spoken by 1950s actor James Dean, before his Porsche Spyder racecar collided with an oncoming car, killing him instantly. 

    Throughout the years, Dean has acquired a large fan base due to his rebellious persona and carefree life, even though he starred in only three major films, in a professional acting career that lasted only four years. 

  • Etiquette is still important

    In today’s less formal society and the ever-changing ways we communicate with each other, one can often forget that manners and etiquette should still be practiced. 

    Sure, today’s teens may not be as well-trained in etiquette as those raised in the 1950s,  but what I find shocking is that too many adults don’t use the manners they were taught as children.

  • Safety in science class: A wake-up call

    Sometimes the best way to learn about science is  through labs. These scientific experiments conducted during class typically reinforce a lesson that students recently learned. 

    With labs comes safety, and during the first week of school every year, for each science class, students watch videos that teach them the proper precautions they must take to keep them and their classmates safe.
