Teen Speak Out
Posted on Jun. 17, 2013Summer is almost here! I can’t wait to be out of school and be an official high-schooler! So excited! (reply)
Posted on Jun. 17, 2013Why is there such a weight issue in this country? Why do people think that overweight people are less important than those who are not? Girls that are super-skinny don’t get the bad attention that the overweight girls do. It’s a sad problem and an unfair one. What can be done to change the way we view people so that our future generations can be different? (reply)
WHY CAN’T I GO?
Posted on Jun. 17, 2013There are tons of awesome summer concerts coming to our area and my parents won’t let me go. My friends are going and I can’t go. I have shown responsibility and have stayed out of trouble. Why is it that I can’t go? (reply)
Posted on Jun. 17, 2013In response to “SPOILED BRAT:” I think you need to understand that we are still children. Our parents are still responsible for us, whether you like it or not. They need to pay for the book and let the kid graduate. They can work something out with their child to pay the money back. This isn’t going to cause the child to think everyone should take care of them in the future. It was a mistake, and the parents will deal with it. Stop being so dramatic. (reply)
Posted on Jun. 17, 2013In response to “NOT AGAIN!”: And where is this extra money coming from? The town is standing there with their hands out waiting for taxpayers’ money. Taxpayers have no money. With people losing their jobs, cuts being made to salaries, inflation and everything else, many are just trying to keep their heads above water. We need to be using our money wisely, and part of that may include improving our town, but it may not. This sounds selfish, but families need to make sure that they can take care of themselves before they make the town their financial priority. (reply)
Posted on Jun. 13, 2013In response to “CAR:” Apparently your parents feel that continuing your education is more important than a set of wheels. You have two choices: 1. Use that college book gift certificate and make something of yourself. 2. Sell your gift certificate, get kicked out of the house and end up flipping burgers. (reply)
Posted on Jun. 13, 2013I hope I get a lot of money for graduation. My parents are throwing a big party. Don’t most people give cash? I have big plans! (reply)
Posted on Jun. 11, 2013In response to “SUMMER CAMP:” I am so glad that you are going to have such a great summer. Enjoy summer camp! (reply)
BE A CHILD
Posted on Jun. 11, 2013In response to “HAVE A SAY:” I don’t have a say now. I watch and listen, but I don’t have a say. We are not old enough to know enough to form an opinion on any of this. Enjoy being a child; you will have plenty of time to worry about the big picture of politics later in life. (reply)
LET US KNOW!
Posted on Jun. 10, 2013In response to “JUST ASK HIM:” We want to know if that girl ever asked that young man to go to the prom with her. Please keep us informed! (reply)
RAIN, RAIN GO AWAY...
Posted on Jun. 10, 2013I hate rain. We have had enough. Go away and come back as snow! (reply)
Posted on Jun. 10, 2013My friend’s parents got her a car for graduation. I got a gift certificate to the college book store! (reply)
Posted on Jun. 10, 2013My parents are thoroughly angered to hear that my town’s budget was voted down twice. We can’t bear any more cuts to the programs that make our town special. Come on, taxpayers! Pay a little more, and be happy with what you get! How are we supposed to succeed when we are outdated? (reply)
Posted on Jun. 06, 2013I wish I had a fairy god-parent like Timmy does on that show I watch sometimes. I wish my parents were more active in my life and looked out for me more. I am on my own and I shouldn’t be. (reply)
Posted on Jun. 06, 2013I am going to camp! I am so excited to go to camp with my friends! These are the best days of the summer! I didn’t think I was going to be able to go due to finances this year, but I am! So excited! (reply)
MAKE A MOVE!
Posted on Jun. 04, 2013In response to “LOST BOOK:” Get a job and pay for your book or ask your parents to pay for it and you can pay them back. I am sure they want you to graduate. Talk to them before you walk down to get a diploma that isn’t going to be there. (reply)
NOT MY PROBLEM!
Posted on Jun. 04, 2013In response to “DON’T BE ASHAMED:” I agree. It’s so stupid. It’s so hot in school and we aren’t allowed to wear tank tops and shorts that are short! Um, hello! It’s 90 degrees! We are hot! I am sorry if some hormone-enraged teenage boy has an issue, we should be able to stay cool. It’s not our problem they are sickos in school. (reply)
JUST TO BE RE-ELECTED
Posted on Jun. 04, 2013In response to “BIG DEAL!” Yes, you can change the future. But as for the political process, you can only change the future based on candidates the political parties offer you. Sort of like Dumb and Dumber. Which future do you choose? When in doubt, look at what Malloy and Obama have done. Some good, but mostly bad. And not for the people, but for the chance of being re-elected. (reply)
GRIN AND BEAR IT
Posted on Jun. 04, 2013In response to “SPLIT TWO WAYS:” Well, it’s a tough spot, but as you get older, you’ll have to deal with these types of situations. Families are tough. If it’s not this, it’ll be something else. My mother used to think that every family had it so much better than ours. They always were doing it right and we were doing it wrong. There is no perfect family. Do the best you can and that’s all you can do. Just grin and bear it. (reply)
Posted on May. 30, 2013In response to “LOST BOOK:” So you lost your book and can’t graduate until you either find it or pay for it. You are having good training now before you enter college. In college, no one will hold your hand if you lose a book and you have to pay for college books! Retrace your steps from the last point where you remember you had your book. If you still can’t find your book and you are not working, sell some of your personal items to get the money to pay your school. Stop being a big baby. Hope you had the common sense to get a summer job. (reply)
