Throughout the past couple of months I have never really realized how important friendships could be. I thought that if you had a personal problem that was your problem to deal with. You shouldn’t bother your friends with your problems because they have problems of their own that they have to deal...

Walking into a freshman class as a senior to make up a lab, I was shocked at what I witnessed. There was outright disrespect and disregard of instruction from the students and a paramount of patience modeled by the teacher. How is it that I’ve walked these halls for four years of my life, and never...

As distanced as some of our holidays have become from their original meanings, Thanksgiving is one of the few that has stayed true to its source, and it’s important to not forget the values at its core. Since its inception, Thanksgiving has revolved around gathering together with family and friends...

Its October, the weather is relatively cold, and I’m approaching the school, having just retrieved something from my car. Suddenly, my ears perk up; I get this fiery sensation in my chest that I can’t quite distinguish. I listen closely. I soon recognize the sound to be Christmas music, and I consequently...

On the first day of school last year, I walked into Portable 15 with my heart beating and my palms sweating. I was a freshman, unsure of what high school teachers would really be like, and out of all the things that I was expecting a high school teacher to be, French teacher Mrs. Deatherage-Larsen was...

The Performing Arts Center is definitely something to be grateful for here at Liberty.

It’s Friday night and you have nothing to do. Your options are to stay home with your mom and watch romantic comedies or go out with your friends and have fun at a loud, exciting, crowded high school football game surrounded by sweaty people. Your choice is obviously the game. You get there to find...

The massed amount of construction workers and working efforts to build our new school has been much appreciated. Liberty High School is an amazing school full of hard working people who deserve a nice school. For the past 40 years we have been learning in the original Liberty and it’s time for a change....

After a long day of stuff-doing, your worst fears as a prestigious and hardworking student come true: a night full of more stuff-doing. Piles of assignments surround you as you are entombed by textbooks and lab reports. Just when you are about to give up hope and softly kiss your immaculate academic...

Fire drills have become pretty common place at Liberty. Whether planned or set off by accident we are all used to the blaring alarm pulling us out of our classes while we wait for the fire department to arrive. When the fire trucks pull up and the fire fighters realize that there is no emergency, they...
