The Revolution

Stereotyping is bad

Blair Doby

December 17, 2012

Dear Editor, It has come to my attention that our school is full of stereotypes. I am appalled with what I hear about people based on clothing, social activities, and appearance. Allow me to name some examples. If you wear camouflage, you are considered a redneck. If you join marching band, you are...

Beating Senioritis

Jessica VIckerman, Editor-in-Chief

December 17, 2012

It’s that time of year again. Teachers are piling on the work before Winter Break, the weathermen are lying about the chances for a snowstorm, and seniors are finishing up (or starting) college applications. With the promise of college looming ahead for many seniors, many forget a very real threat:...

Your guide to the breezeway: know your place!

Your guide to the breezeway: know your place!

November 19, 2012

The breezeway is a cherished part of student life at AHS. It’s those seven minutes between classes that we all look forward to for chatting up with friends and catching up on all the latest. Although the breezeway has its fun, it can be a little chaotic with the entire school standing in it. As...

Letter to the Editor: Peeved at PDA

November 19, 2012

Dear Editor, I wanted to write a letter concerning PDA. When in the hallway, I am not interested in being sidetracked by people who act as if their only goal in life is to procreate as quickly as possible. Love is great. It has been the basis of many great works and created many amazing things...

No Shave November is not just for fun

Kaitlyn Miller, Managing Editor

November 19, 2012

No-shave November.  The 30 days of high school boys growing out struggling mustaches and girls letting their leg hair run wild. I have nothing against those who participate in No Shave November.  In fact,  I strongly support those raising awareness for a medical condition. That’s right, No...

How to juggle school and sleep

Austen Weathersby, Copy Editor

November 19, 2012

“Finishing the club stuff took forever; I got only like, four hours of sleep!” “I stayed up ‘til 4 am last night because of that stupid project.” “I fell asleep in class today because I had to stay up to finish that outline.” Sound familiar? High school students are infamous for...

Julia Hates Something: Mentioning the Unmentionables

Julia Hates Something: Mentioning the Unmentionables

Julia Harrison, Staff Reporter

November 19, 2012

“Keep it classy, Albemarle,” the morning announcements remind us each morning, and yet its simple message goes unheard. Either girls should start wearing shirts or the school should provide complimentary tank tops for the students of Albemarle. Albemarle is rumored to be slightly upscale, so it...

The ups and downs of an extra CHAT

October 15, 2012

The new school year brought another new change to the schedule:  a Thursday CHAT. Though this addition has improved many of the time constraints from last year’s schedule, more could be done to increase the benefits for students. First of all, there are some solid benefits. Socially, having two...

Please, pick up your trash

Please, pick up your trash

Alexa Hodges, Staff Writer

October 15, 2012

Being a high school student sometimes feels like a luxury. Students are, for the most part, passed their days of being told what to do, having their hands held, and being given timeout. Some of us are years away from college, while for others, it’s just a few months away. Regardless, we can all...
