It was a quiet day with quiet weather and bleach-white clouds blanketing the midday sky.

As I witnessed the dozens of feet shovel around me, I felt like Mufasa as he's...

Constructive Criticism

Bailey Bush, Online Editor

October 10, 2013

Unless you’re new to Albemarle, or just unobservant, you’ve probably noticed the changes in the library. From new furniture to a whole new room known as the Writing Center, the amount of money spent on this project was a whopping $75,000.             The “modern” changes are part of a county-wide program ca...

Outlining vs. Feeling the Touch of the Sun’s Warming Rays: The Adolescent Dilemma

Julia Harrison, Copy Editor

October 10, 2013

How ironic that I write this article while I’m sitting in a dark room with my windows closed, even though it’s a 74-degree evening, my lap burning from an overheated laptop. Although a hypocrite, I understand that just outside I could be taking a quiet walk with no shoes and no iPod, just enjoying...
