March 31, 2010

Jovel Queirolo Managing Editor Single-sex education provides a comfortable and less awkward environment for girls to be themselves as they grow into women while removing social competition during their teen years.

Lenten lessons lately learned

March 31, 2010

Jovel Queirolo Managing Editor My first post-Easter Mass egg hunt began with a face-plant and a mouth full of grass. Struggling to get up in my loose rain boots I finally stood, dizzy with boys and girls in suits and dresses flying by me, and sprinted toward the closest bush, squinting for a hint o...

Bay Area not ready for the next quake

Bay Area not ready for the next quake

March 31, 2010

Zoe Newcomb News Editor San Francisco is arguably most well-known for the two major earthquakes that have shaken up the Bay Area — one in 1906 that is notorious for widespread looting and destructive fires and another in 1989 that postponed Game 2 of the World Series. For a region plagued by seism...

Organized religion is the new counterculture

February 11, 2010

Jovel Queirolo Managing Editor The pews smell like stale floral perfume and a hardware store every Sunday. A sleepy warbling organ and a only a few enthusiastic voices back up a whining cantor singing “A-lle-lu-i-ah” as Father Mark takes his time settling the Gospel on its stand. Parishioners stand, b...

People should do more than just text to help Haiti

February 11, 2010

Relationships need to involve personal contact, not just the Internet

February 11, 2010

Jovel Queirolo Managing Editor High school relationships can be terrifying. Bad breath is the enemy. A girl might be confused about whether a guy likes her.

It is the season to be grateful for what we take for granted

December 16, 2009

Jovel Quierolo Managing Editor Thanks-giving is always herb-roasted turkey and ravioli in Lodi with my dad’s side. After food and card games, my grandma used to tell us stories about Cedarville — the ranch she grew up on — and how my kid dad dubbed himself king of the manure pile. Another night, u...

Colleges may learn from sports experts

November 2, 2009

Jovel Quierolo Managing editor Professional hockey players skate with a constant fear of losing their edge and their contracts. Every year the tough guys are asked to stay on their teams, get traded or get cut. Walking to HP Pavilion with my dad for a game, I was curious as to where my favorite Sharks pl...

Supporters of ‘trendy’ charities lose credibility

October 30, 2009

Zoë Newcomb News Editor Charities and causes have become like teeny, shivering purse dogs. They’re fascinating but they all look exactly the same. It’s not unusual to hear about classmates who are involved in five or 10 clubs; one to feed the homeless, one to help children with cancer, another ...

October 30, 2009

Staff Editorial Music is there for teens at times when their worlds are collapsing and changing as they grow — those times when they begin to ask, in the words of Tegan and Sarah, “Where does the good go?” In brooding over a first crush or a bad grade or a fight with parents, an emotionally u...
