Bombs exploding. Shrapnel slicing through flesh. Bullets whizzing past like tiny meteorites, a sound of thunder following a split second later. A strangled scream. Blood pooling in the dust. All in the life of the American soldier. These soldiers suffer through arduous basic training. They are trained...

It’s lunch time. You are sitting with your friends, laughing, eating and enjoying your lunch period. Then you glance up. You see a couple at their lunch table. They aren’t eating food though. They’re eating the other’s faces. PDA—public displays of affection—is something we have all experienced...

I hear the classroom door open. I turn my head to see who is about to enter the classroom, an excuse to focus on something other than the lesson for a few short seconds. He walks in with a smile on his face and empties the classroom garbage can. This is daily routine, and he never asks for anything in...

He said she said. That’s all it is. Rumors and here say. Recently at Albert Lea High School, students along with some staff members have been curious about backpacks. Are we students getting the privilege of using backpacks taken away? No. No we are not. This ordeal was nothing but a rumor. And this...

Take a look around your classroom; how many people are wearing variations of the outfits pictured to the left? I bet at least two or three, or even more if it’s a Monday. We wake up to the chilly Minnesota air wishing to stay in our warm beds all day. Not caring how you look, you throw on whatever...

Here at ALHS, there are a number of people who work behind the scenes to help make this school run. We, as a staff, feel they are sometimes under appreciated and would like to show appreciation for them. First, we would like to thank the teachers who take so much time out of their life and make so much...

Okay, so there aren’t really robot space aliens taking over the world. But there is something else taking over our world, and the music industry. Auto-tuning. Which I guess you can call those who do nothing but use auto-tuning robot space aliens. That is what they sound like. For those of you that...

Just a few weeks ago, Scott Schmeltzer was writing about how the ALHS boys varsity sports needed to step it up. A few weeks later, he wrote an apology/clarification column. I believe the Ahlahasa staff had something to do with that. On Oct. 10th, Schmeltzer came to the Publications classroom and was...

Whenever I think of advisory, it brings me all the way back to Southwest Middle School. Every morning up until I started high school. In high school we would only have advisement whenever we needed it like for pep rallies, etc... Now that we have advisement everyday, it seems that the high school has...

The bell rings and the crowds instantly begin to form. Student’s conversate and laugh along with running, pushing and shoving. All the students run to lunch like they have never eaten before. Pure insanity. I doubt it’s solely due to students enjoying this year’s new food menu. Maybe it’s because...
