To vote or not to vote

Attack advertisements. Policy discussions. Debates, rinse, and repeat. It is that time yet again.

As Karl Marx once said, “The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives […]

Grants, not loans

Imagine you are a senior in high school, opening up a letter from your university or college of choice to find you have been officially accepted. Before you start jumping for joy, one question pops into your mind– how on earth am I going to pay for this? This is a legitimate concern, as the […]

Cheerleading a Legit Sport

Throughout the U.S., cheerleading has increased in popularity as more teens have become involved in the sport, however, the debate remains – is cheerleading a sport?   Although the growing number of cheerleaders suggest otherwise, most Americans do not consider it a sport.

Without a doubt, the debate over Proposition 30 is one that needs to be heard by not just Pierce students, but all students and supporters of the community college system.   If you’re unfamiliar with the November 6 ballot proposition, Prop 30 would increase the sales tax by 0.25 percent, and it would increase the […]
