Every Sunday evening from 5:30 to 7:30, a group of teenage Christians gather at 1027 Weems Rd. for fun, community, and worship. I was new to City Group this week and was welcomed right away.  At first we just hung out. We took loads of silly pictures, hula-hooped, played basketball, and I even joined...

Do we reward children and others too much by offering participation trophies and consolation prizes? We do well to celebrate hard work put into a commitment, but there is a line that must be drawn. We need to congratulate children on their effort, but they cannot be coddled into believing that the bare...

Want cows in your back yard? Boom, move to the country. Want constant noise and lights everywhere you turn, well the city is just for you. Trust me when I say the country is a way better decision then the city. In the country you have the opportunity grow your own food, and the air is actually cleaner...

Ah yes, school. The magical place where all students go to sit in different classrooms for eight endless hours a day, only to come home, study, and hopefully get eight hours of sleep. Throughout the day the only thing that keeps me going is caffeine, friends, prayer, and looking forward to lunch. Th...

Sports are very important to Springville High School and our community, but do we deserve more? Many schools have upgraded their football fields, and we need to be the next to do so.

  The Chewy candy that we are so familiar with today first came into existence in 1974. Skittles spent the first five years of its life solely in Britain, since it wasn't until 1979 that North America got a chance to taste the rainbow. There is much thought surrounding the creator of Skittle...

As upperclassmen settle into their day-to-day schedules at SHS, a clear divide emerges between students who were previously referred to as "advanced." Moving into junior year offers a unique opportunity that was not previously available: we can enroll in Advanced Placement (AP) or dual enrollment courses....

Homework Doesn’t Help; It Hurts

Filed under Opinion

Throughout the school day, students usually only have one thing on their minds: will we have homework tonight? The answer is a usually a dreaded yes followed by a discouraging sigh. Thanks to my many AP, Pre-AP, and Dual Enrollment classes, my afternoons are usually crammed full of homework assignments fr...

Filed under Opinion

Springville High School should switch to a four day school week. Switching would save money for the school by not running the buses, not needing substitutes, and lower utility costs for the one day everyone is not at school. A school district in Colorado made the change, and they are hoping to save...

Pumpkins. Bonfires. Apple cider.
