I would like to address the problem of non-registered students gathering on school grounds. These “students” appear to congregate closest to the parking lots on the south side of school. They don’t say much, but they furtively watch my every move.

When crumpling up a piece of paper, the first instinct is to fade away from the trash bin and shoot the wad of paper. When the wad is sailing through the air you don’t shout MJ, you shout K-o-b-e. Over the past 20 years, the NBA was taken by storm by a 17-year-old guard out of Philly. He was the first high schooler ever taken in the NBA draft, and to this day. At the...

The Broncos faced division rival Kansas City in a rematch of Denver’s week-two, 31-24 come-from-behind victory. Peyton Manning entered the game needing only three passing yards to surpass Brett Favre’s all-time career passing yards record and...
