FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK: The glory days are still ahead, graduates

Posted on May 26, 2015 at 10:18 am

With the CHS class of 2015 now officially graduated and into the world I have been left reflecting on some of my high school days and how drastically the world can change in 11 years. I vividly recall some high school memories. Ironically, none of those come from inside the classroom. I remember getting my first car when I turned 16 – an older-model Pontiac Firebird. It was equipped with

    The swift action by Central High School principal Dr. Joey Vaughn to hire football coach Ryan Sulkowski to double as the school’s athletic director signals a move toward a more dedicated athletic program and is a decision worthy of praise. The school, in particular the athletic program, has been beaten up by negative news over the past couple of months. However, the hiring of Sulkowski is sure to turn the

    It is perhaps one of the least-hyped weeks of the many weeks recognizing certain causes out there – it is Teacher Appreciation Week. I get a list from one of our newspaper sources each month telling me what exactly we are recognizing each month. One thing that I’ve determined is that while we all may not care for National Barbecue Month (which, FYI, is this month) because we may not

    I left the sports department of the newspaper almost five years ago now to take over the editorial department. But to throw out some derivative of this often overused phrase – you can take the man out of the sports department, but you can’t take the sports out of the man. Over the past few years I have watched the Central High School athletic department from a distance. Keeping close

     Kids can take life and simplify it in just a few words that make me wonder why we make things so complicated in this world. Why do we need such big words and expanded vernacular to express ourselves? (See what I did there?) Gracie gave me a little spontaneous anatomy lesson the other morning that simplifies it all. There was a deer slowly making her way across our backyard. This

    Storms have always fascinated me. Since high school I have displayed an abnormal interest in stormy weather. Spring is here, which means I now get to watch The Weather Channel with regularity and draw awkward looks from Holly as if I were a psychopath. She gives me that jaw-half-open, head-drawn-back, eyes-kind-of-rolling look when I run to the kitchen and return with a bowl of popcorn for what I deem entertaining

  • FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK: Marriage – hot and cold

    By Josh Peterson, editor

    When I married my lovely wife I anticipated that we would occasionally encounter conflicts. I am young, therefore inexperienced and relatively stupid in the realm of marriage, but I knew for sure we would have disagreements in everyday life and philosophical disparities that would need worked out through the years. All relationships do. After all, every rose has a thorn or two. With all that is out there in the
