Planned Parenthood helps low income women

There has been a lot of recent drama in the news lately regarding Planned Parenthood. The organization was accused of selling fetal tissue for profit and, despite the rumors, this accusation is not true. With the mother's permission, Planned Parenthood donates the fetal tissue for scientific research. The organization only receives reimbursement for its expenses in processing the tissue. According to Eric Ferrero, the vice president of communications for Planned Parenthood, there is no financial benefit to either the patient or Planned Parenthood.

Teachers help with end of course exam reviews

With the holidays here, a majority of people are caught up in the season's spirit.

NCHS writer wants dress code relaxed

In the morning, many girls all over get up an extra hour early to dress themselves and put on makeup, only to be judged upon arrival at school. The judgement does not only come from fellow students, but also from administration and teachers. This judgement comes from the dress code enforced for female students. While we understand certain dress codes are enforced in the workplace, we ask for administrators to understand we are teenagers.

Past experience

Do you remember what is was like at 15? You do not want to be considered a child, but you do not yet qualify for all of the adult endeavors in life. Everyone has been stuck at this awkward stage. You are dying to get a job, but you lack the necessary experience.

Teachers provide the foundation for achieving life’s goals

The dictionary defines influence as "the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone." Influence is a simple word also defined by our personal interpretations of how a person makes us feel. A feeling that can leave us changed forever. An influence may be found in the way a person helps mold our career plans or our daily conduct. It's a lasting impact that moves us from point A in our life, to point B. We begin as someone completely different from the individual we turn out to be on the other side. High ...

A farewell to high school

As my senior year draws to a close, I've come to the realization that no matter where you go, you will always have someone in a position of authority over you. Being a student for 12 years means that I have been under the authority of many teachers- some wonderful and some not quite so.
