The Spirit bowl is not a dish containing salad, soup, or extraterrestrial spirits. It is a room filled with Passion, Energy, Love, Hate, and Camaraderie. It was an unforgettable time watching students like Hershel Clinger and Brady Terry cover their faces with peanut butter, Sam Kid, Marin Geissing, Louie Kaufsi, Gary Gaskell, and Nathan Womack downing shakes that resembled puke, passing life savers with toothpicks, and Mr. Blake’s very disturbing dance moves. The stakes were high, and emotions elevated.   I even got booed out of the gym by my own seniors for accidently helping a junior (we

              A slight push from behind, a collision of shopping carts, a weeping woman in the corner, and suddenly, chaos erupts. The aisles of Wal-Mart are jam packed with bargain shoppers of craziness. There is no courtesy. There is no love. It’s the day after Thanksgiving: the first official day of holiday shopping. It’s Black Friday, and this year, I wanted to experience it firsthand.   

The Girls are Bawlin' Basketball

Coming into a season with little senior leadership sometimes poses difficulties for a basketball team, but not for the boy’s basketball team at Payson High School. The team that doesn’t have a senior on the roster has jumped out to a great start in the 2009- 2010 season. The Lions are showing that they are a force with wins over Union and Dixie. The young lions are really flexing their muscle especially on the offensive side of the ball. By the numbers the Lions are shooting just under 50 percent from the field this season and a scorching 36 percent from behind the arch.
