September 21, 2020

I had just finished dinner with some friends. Walking into my living room, I was on a social high and excited to keep the positivity going for the rest of the night. But then I saw the devastation on my parents’ faces and the television headline announcing the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth B...

‘The Half of It’ Review

‘The Half of It’ Review

Claire Williams, copy editor

May 14, 2020

“The Half of It” is a cute, coming-of-age movie that doesn’t feature a straight white girl as the main character. Instead, it follows Ellie Chu, a girl who owns an essay-writing business, and Paul, a somewhat dim-witted boy who is hopelessly in love with the most popular girl in school, Aster....

Everything is uncertain right now. We’re at a point where everyone’s just sitting on their hands, waiting for things to go back to normal. Recently, however, something that’s stayed steady and reliable is the LT administration’s response to the situation at hand. They’ve handled this situatio...

Equality—that's literally all we're asking for

Maggie Kahn, Sports Co-Editor

April 15, 2020

While trapped in quarantine, my two best guy friends and I were Facetiming when we stumbled upon a very emotional, heated topic: feminism.  I wouldn’t describe myself as an extreme liberal when it comes to my political views, but the stigma this term carries makes my blood boil.  When I aske...

If you’ve been keeping up to date with our website, you would have seen that a lot of people are offering up their mindset and feelings about coronavirus. I have to say, I agree with everything my peers have said. From the importance of keeping distance to the sadness surrounding the cancellations...

6 feet—I mean it

Maggie Kahn, Sports Editor

April 6, 2020

As the outbreak of the coronavirus slowly made its way to Lyons Township High School, many people did not fully understand its impact. At first COVID-19 seemed like some faraway myth based in China, nowhere near our perfect little bubble of serenity and normalcy.  But when Principal Brian Waterman announced ...

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...

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...

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...
