A final goodbye

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief May 19, 2015

After spending four years at BHS and three of those years in Mrs. Pendergrass’s Journalism class, I have developed a very strong and positive opinion on the class and newspaper that I have spent so much...

Social medias desensitizing effect

Social media’s desensitizing effect

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief April 19, 2015

I find that as I progress through high school, each class that enters as freshmen has become more and more apathetic and desensitized. Don’t misunderstand, every class has their nice and genuine individuals,...

Our school, our decision, right?

Our school, our decision, right?

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief March 20, 2015

High school can seem like merely a joke to many adults; they see it as a time of no real importance aside from the cliché idea that “high school is where you find yourself.” But to teenagers, there...

The new college investment

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief February 19, 2015

I think we all know that college has become more than an investment in our education, rather it has become an investment that we’ll be paying off for the rest of your life. For some of use, our loans...

Biddeford athletics need more support

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief January 15, 2015

If Biddeford is known for one thing, it has always been its love for and dedication to athletics. As long as I can remember, BHS sporting events, particularly football and boys hockey, have brought in...

The education downward spiral

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief January 13, 2015

Although I am a part of this very modern society, I find myself envying those that lived far before my years for reasons that would make a list longer than anyone could ever imagine. One thing I particularly...

The confliction and contradiction that is senior year

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief November 26, 2014

Senior year is one big pot of conflicting emotions. It’s the end of an era, a transition in about every possible aspect of one’s being, and the start of a new life all in a nine month span. We come...

How much we missed out

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief October 21, 2014

Homecoming week at Biddeford High School has always been a beloved and traditional competition between the classes. This year, however, the week has changed substantially, as the competitive nature was...

A glimpse into the Editor’s Mind

Cameron Petit, Editor in Chief September 19, 2014

Competition is a funny thing, really. It’s all around us everyday–the need to get the better grade, the excitement that comes with winning a football game, or the selectiveness of colleges and jobs–yet...

A glimpse into the Editor’s mind

Cameron Petit, Editor June 12, 2014

I have to say, if you would’ve asked me a week ago how I felt about the changes to graduation, I would’ve probably went on a rage about traditions and how we can’t change them. I think that’s how...

A glimpse into the Editor’s mind

Cameron Petit, Editor May 29, 2014

Almost all stereotypes that adults hold over teenagers I disagree with, because I don’t think that stereotypes capture all of the population, just a small, yet influential group. But in the case of our...

How our definition of bullying is affecting the problem
