Satire—Commuting from home? Here’s three great places to scream out your agony

Satire—Commuting from home? Here’s three great places to scream out your agony

Harry Stine, contributing writer October 8, 2021
So today I offer up a resource for those like me, because if there’s anything I’ve learned from my time in college, it’s that the best way to solve your problems is by letting your emotions simply explode through nonverbal, yet extremely audible, actions such as screaming. It’s easy, it’s soothing and most of all it’s affordable.

Letter to the Editor—Finding home in Calhoun County

Lucy Blair March 18, 2021
When I read Ashley Beronja's recent opinion column about her experience moving from Battle Creek to Marquette, I couldn't help feeling like I was living a weird Act II of Ashley's story, as someone whose home went from being Marquette to living in Calhoun County, where Ashley grew up.

Opinion—Why moving out of your hometown is the best choice you can make

Opinion—Autumn brings both beautiful colors and homesick feelings

Alexis Stalker October 13, 2020
My sweet little farm back home in Clarkston, MI is something I’ve been missing lately. My mother has always had a deep connection to nature, and we finally got our own slice of happiness on the farm during our recent move to the property. I’ve always viewed autumn as a vulnerable state of nature, as everything is in the process of its passing. Going to the woods during this time is a cleansing experience to reset for just a moment with nature. My mother and I always strap on our Tevas and Smartwool socks to brace for the crisp autumn morning air before venturing out with our dog, Junior—who of course gets his own sweater—to wander the woods together.
