    Cats vs. Dogs is one of the age old battles of good and evil. Much like Voldemort vs. Harry Potter, one of the sides is clearly good while the other is monstrous, evil.

    This is a very big year for politics. In November, America will elect, or re-elect, Barack Obama or Mitt Romney as president. The election in November offers many exciting options, especially the opportunity for many 18-year-olds to vote for the first time. 

    “I’m very excited. It makes me feel grown,” Elizabethtown High School senior Mariah Dennison said.

    Here we go,  summer has arrived. Time for sunbathing, movie-watching and hanging out with friends. Wait. What’s this about college and putting together a dorm room?

    For many new high school graduates, what to do about the dorm is a major blank spot on the college checklist. There are so many essentials we tend to forget about in our grand plans for college life.

  • Television
    The Doctor of "Doctor Who" is an alien who travels through time and space in a little blue box (it’s bigger on the inside). He fights aliens and befriends others, as he shows his human companions more of the world than they can even imagine. The show ran from 1963-1989, but it was revived in 2005 and it will begin its seventh season later in 2012. Anyone who is a fan of the sci fi genre should definitely check it out, as well as anyone who is a fan of quick-witted British humor.

  • About 10 years ago, Morgan Morrow, 24, developed a desire to visit missionaries in Liberia and collect supplies for the people there. In March, she finally took the leap and went to the country in West Africa.

    It all started when missionary Albert Stewart, a former member of Faith Apostolic Church, which Morrow attends, returned to the church to present what he had been doing as a missionary in Liberia with his wife, Tegeste.

    “When he played the DVD, it broke my heart and I felt a burden,” Morrow said.

  • It’s all about relationships.

    Those connections we forge with family, friends and coworkers that sustain us and prod us and make us better than we could be by ourselves.

    It’s about the bouquet of flowers the friends of a colleague of mine sent her at work when she was going through a rough patch caring for her ailing mother. That circle of friends has taken her out to breakfast, cried with her and listened to her as she’s grappled with the difficult decision of moving her mother, no longer able to stay in her own home, to a nursing home.
