Can you trust your internet browser with your passwords? Can people easily discover your passwords? When people store passwords and personal information in their phones, others can pinpoint their location and potentially cause harm. According to Adam Levin, a smartphone expert, “40 percent of smartphone users do not secure their phones with any type of entry password.” If a phone is lost or stolen, anyone can gain access to all information and accounts.

Mrs. Liddle teaches what is known as the Special Ed classes.They are the most unique kids you can ever find. They all support the newspaper and read it every month. They are the newspaper’s number one fans! When they receive a new issue they read it, become familiar with it, and enjoy it. We thought it would be fun to give our number one fans a spotlight. Here is a little bit about each student.

This year for choir tour, the Payson High Concert Choir went to Disneyland. On the way to California, the concert choir first stopped at SUU to do a clinic with a professor there named Kevin Baker. After this, the choir had a choir exchange with Canyon View. (A choir exchange is where both choirs get together and perform for each other, spend some time singing together, and get to meet new people.) After singing for a bit then stopping for lunch, the choir then headed to Las Vegas. That night in Vegas, we had the chance to see the play Newsies at The Smith Center.
