Hi. Recently, I read an article by Taylor Terreri about Planned Parenthood.

Cisnormativity and cissexism are ba...

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Showcase, Student Opinion, Uncategorized

Before I begin this I would like to make sure that everyone knows that I am using LGBT+ and gay both as umbrella terms for all of the sexualities and genders that aren’t straight or cisgender. In our society, gay rights and LGBT+ rights are just emerging. While this is exciting and represents ...

Social anxiety is real. It’s different than being introverted, but when you are both, your life basically revolves around avoiding people in general. Most people treat social anxiety like it’s a made up disorder for shy people to say they have. Social Anxiety is, summed up into two broad ideas, the f...

Teen jobs are stressed a little too much. Being a teen myself, it is unbelievably difficult to balance school, extra activities, and a job.

What’s the point of a newspaper if no one reads it? A newspaper is kind of like a mansion, each room being a different article. There are many things to look at and people go from room to room, eventually getting lost in their own discoveries. What’s the point of a mansion if no one goes in it?...

School spirit has been a part of American culture easily over a century, and it is a way for students to show their loyalty to their school who may not normally get to do so through playing in a band, running down a football field, or shaking pompoms.  At Horizon, we students are able to show spirit by...

Filed under Letters to the Editor

Ok, I really wanted this to be anonymous, but I don't really want to spend the time finding a website that sends anonymous emails. I would rather just speak my mind then pretend to not care. Nonetheless, the subject speaks for itself. And I know for a fact that I am NOT the only one. ...
