As once said by holistic health practitioner/food advocate and author, Ann Wigmore, “The food you eat can be the either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” I, as a consumer, am very impressed with the lunches that are served here at HHS.

Filed under Opinion, Sports

After another season of sitting in front of the TV or going to the Target Center, the Minnesota Timberwolves will again fall short of the playoffs. Since I was a little kid, I’ve always been a huge fan of the Timberwolves, whether it was when I was watching the Wolves draft Ricky Rubio and Jonny Flynn over Steph Curry, sitting in front of the TV at the kitchen table with my dad listening to us trading OJ Mayo for Kevin Love, seeing us pass up on Demarcus Cousins for Wesley Johnson, or even exciting moments, like watching us trade for Andrew Wiggins and drafting Karl-Anthony Towns.

Even though it was expected, it still came as a shock to me. The Minnesota Vikings made a big decision this offseason with their star player. On February 28, I looked at my phone and saw an update about Adrian Peterson, now ex-running back for the Vikings, saying the team will not exercise the 2017 opti...

Filed under Opinion, Variety

To me and so many others, Gilmore Girls is more than a heartfelt story line, and it’s more than a relationship between a mother and daughter; it’s a way of life.
