It’s just team sports

It’s just team sports

Team Sports classes are a good way for students to play a variety of different sports in a non-competitive environment. One of the reasons I’m taking a Team Sports class this year is because I wanted a stress-free part of my day where I could get some exercise. However, the “just for fun” atmosphe...

Walking down the halls of Mill Valley, there are very few phrases someone could say that would be understood by the mass majority of students. Some of them would probably be huge cultural or political statements, but if I could guess, a lot of them would be connected to Vine, the social media platfor...

The First Amendment states “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble.” The American people need to review these rights due to the chaos of Charlottesville on Saturday, August 12 and the free speech protest in ...

Junior year was a wild but important ride

Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

It’d be an understatement to say that my junior year was a roller coaster ride. Through an amazing musical, abnormal “play,” exceptional Relay for Life and, most recently, an interesting StuCo election, it’s safe to say that I’ve had a fair share of ups and downs. However, throughout the chaos t...

Wow, I can’t believe my three years of newspaper are already up. It really doesn’t feel that long ago that I was called down to the office my freshman year and told I was going to be on the JagWire staff. Being a part of staff has forever changed my life and the benefits will continue to impact my futu...

Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

Since I joined staff three years ago, I have struggled with getting myself into situations I find to be dangerous, which happens to be similar as a car ride I experienced with editor-in-chief Braden Shaw after a boys soccer game. It’s hard to believe this now, but I honestly did not want to go out...

Ever since I was in the fifth grade, I’ve wanted to be a sports journalist. Granted, back then I didn’t even know what that entailed, but I liked to write and talk about sports, so it sounded good to me. My friend Jimmy felt the same way, so we naturally started up our world-renowned sports blog ...

As I finish up the semester, I am letting out a huge sigh of relief. AP Chemistry, which has been the source of both excitement and stress for the past 9 months, is finally over. I can definitively say that it was the hardest class I’ve ever taken, not necessarily because of the content, but because of ...

For all you avid country music listeners out there, here’s something that’ll liven up your summer, especially for you teens out there with no money: a free, yes, I said free, concert series called “Hot Country Nights” that takes place every Thursday night during the summer. They’re sponsored...

Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

When I walk into the World War I museum, I can smell the history. The walls are lined with glass casings and artifacts. Being a history junkie since I was younger, I loved going to museums. This museum by far is the most unique I have ever been to due to it’s spectacular collection of WWI artifacts and...

Morgan Gurwell, JagWire managing editor

April 16, 2017


Filed under OPINION, Opinion columns

For the past few years, I’ve frequented the downtown area quite a bit for doctors appointments. I absolutely hated going, which my mom was plenty aware of, so one day after an appointment, she took me to the Filling Station. It quickly became a tradition after every appointment, making me actually...
