Social Distancing Book Club

Sophia Schultz, reporter

April 2, 2020

As the world struggles through this strange time in history, we are left with only technology and our creativity to stay social. Although I do like to Facetime and Zoom with my friends, I wanted to think of something extra special to bring my friends and I together during this crazy time. I thought...

Mental and physical health treatments should be more connected

Nicole Klein, Website Editor

April 1, 2020

Since you can’t get blood drawn at a therapist's office and can’t talk about your personal feelings for an hour with your doctor, I used to think that mental and physical health were separate and treatment should be separate as well. However, there are many pieces of evidence that mental and physical...

Words of Wisdom

Tessa Voytovich, News Co-Editor

March 31, 2020

As the end of my high school experience quickly approaches, I often find myself reflecting on the mistakes and good choices I have made in my life since 2016. The four years I’ve spent at LT have not necessarily changed me, but definitely taught me some useful knowledge. I don’t have a younger sibling...

Reality for the Class of 2020

Mia Bonfiglio, Pulse Co-Editor

March 30, 2020

When I started writing this column about two weeks ago, I was writing about a completely different topic, but now I can’t even imagine writing about anything except the virus that took our country by storm just a mere week ago. If you would have told me two weeks ago that in seven days, my whole life...

“On My Block” Season 3 review

Liz Gremer, Co-Art Director

March 30, 2020

Like most people, I have been nestled up in my house for the past week, trying to figure out ways to make the time pass by. And what better way to pass a couple hours than to catch up on all the shows I watched. So, when the third season of Netflix’s “On My Block” dropped on Monday, I decided that...

Wanted: Roommate

Liz Gremer, Co Art Director

February 28, 2020

Like many seniors going off to college next year, I’m on the lookout for some potential friends and roommates. I’m trying to get on top of things and meet people before I even get on campus. So, just like everyone else, I downloaded Facebook. As I created my account and joined my school’s “Class...

‘Sex Education’ season 2 impresses fans

Liz Gremer, Co Art Director

February 28, 2020

When I first tuned-in to “Sex Education” last year in its first season, I was shocked, but also incredibly intrigued. Sure, the show graphically depicts teenage relationships and intimacy, but the realness and complexity of the storylines kept my eyes glued to the screen. I finished the first season...

Not funny anymore

John Hepp, Opinion Editor

February 28, 2020

I’ve always loved “Saturday Night Live.” I grew up with Bill Hader, Kristin Wiig, Andy Samberg and Maya Rudolph, just to name a few, making me laugh every Saturday night. That cast from eight to nine years ago was perfect, and created a golden age of SNL. Eventually, however, cast members move ...

The Snowflake Generation

Diane Makovic, Co Editor In Chief

February 28, 2020

We’ve all heard the stories from our grandparents and parents that start with “back in my day.” Typically these stories revolve around the idea that kids today are spoiled and don’t have to deal with the hardships the world had back then. And, as a whole, kids today are more sensitive than ever...

Vacate the Vapes

February 28, 2020

Our Position: LT needs to take more action to prevent students from vaping in the school bathrooms. It seems that every year vapes and drugs in general become more and more accessible to students. Many of those same students also feel the need to bring them into the school and ruin one of the few s...

It’s more than just a word

February 28, 2020

Our position: More students should speak out when they hear other students using derogatory language at school. Throughout the school day, it’s not uncommon to hear people using words in a derogatory way. With startling frequency, the “R-word” is used as a joking insult and “gay” is use...

Church league column

Tommy Layden, Sports Co-Editor

February 28, 2020

Church League is just rec league basketball. It is just a bunch of guys in a gym who aren’t the most skilled or the best athletes shooting hoops. Church League is all of these things, but it is so much more than a rec league. It is a continuation in a sport for many who had no chance of playing in...

“The fault in our sex education”

Paige Darling, Assistant Multimedia Editor

February 28, 2020

Sex education is a controversial topic because its main subject is taboo. Sex has a never-ending stigma that prohibits us from having productive conversations about it. What the world, especially the U.S., is failing to understand is that without proper education about sex, it will result in some negative...
