Signs of Autumn

After months of hot weather and before people start freezing from the snow of the harsh winter, there is a subtle change in weather. The subtle change usually indicates the start of fall. The colors, smells, and smiles are contagious. There’s a satisfaction of crunching the fallen leaves, drinking hot apple cider, and the brisk cool temperature that makes many people feel happiness about autumn. Flavors of pumpkin and apples appear everywhere in the blink of an eye. Turns out, there is a scientific reason behind why it’s so easy to fall in love with autumn and its stereotypes. The connotation of the word “fall” brings a lot of joy because of everything that surround the time of year. Emma De

Providence Shooting: Where's the Media?

If you were driving through Providence on May 5, you might have noticed how backed up the state of the traffic in the city is. I certainly did; I had to drive through it on my way to work at WPRO in East Providence. After about half an hour sitting in traffic on Route 146 and I-95, I gave up and took the Atwells Avenue exit, expecting that the highway traffic would be far worse than the traffic in the streets of the city. I was very wrong. Although a bit of the gridlock in the city was certainly due to a car crash, and a good bit can also be attributed to the never-ending Rhode Island construction, the traffic in the city was far worse than it should have been. So I decided to call my dad, t

Lincoln boys soccer home opener

The start of the school year has not been much to look forward to. However, the start of another season for the Lincoln boys soccer team has always excited students, and of course players. All the hard practices in the miserable hot weather was about to serve a purpose as the first game of the 2018 season was bound to arrive. September 4th had a marquee matchup between Mount Saint Charles academy vs the Lincoln Lions. An under the lights night featured the Lions trying to hold onto the winning traditions it has served for many years in the past. Going for a win in the first game can get a team in better shape by gaining confidence, and a shutout would not hurt as well. The first half showed

Kaepernick Impact: Time Will Tell

Colin Kaepernick is one of the most influential athletes of our generation; and he hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2016-17 season. Kaepernick made national headlines when he took a knee during the national anthem in a preseason game in 2016. Since then, players all around the league have joined him with groups of players dropping to one knee during the anthem. One huge misconception of the kneelings are that they are to disrespect our soldiers and the founding fathers, but this is not the case. Kaepernick, along with many other athletes, have explained that it is to stand up for minorities in the United States and how they are treated unfairly. "I am not going to stand up to show pride in

How Do YOU Beat the Heat?

As you enter the brand new doors of Lincoln High School, you feel the burdened weight of heat and humidity rest upon your shoulders. Blank white walls are in place of hallways and the flow of students is held up by the traffic of getting from class to class. Each classroom has their own fan that students are dying to crowd around in order to push away the impending sweat beading on everyone's foreheads. Students worry about their mornings clothing decision and how they could have anticipated the amount of heat trapped inside of the school walls. Incoming freshman students from LMS were required to attend a day in advance of the official first day of school on August 30th. This day, August 29

Students, know your rights!

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”- Amendment One from The Bill of Rights. As students adjust to the new school year, questions arise as more and more students become involved in politics, but still don’t know their own rights. One can not safely protest and express opinions without knowing the extent of how far they are able to go. Last school year, a walkout occurred across the nation, after a shooting took place in Parkland, Florida. Students walked out

Mapping our way to class: Where Did Everything Move To?

Construction signs plastered across the blue doors of Lincoln High School, Hard, sturdy white walls replacing particular areas in the building. I would say what’s going on, but it’s pretty straightforward at this phase in the process. On July 24th, 2018, Lincoln High School officially kick-started their renovation process. While for months before there have been a vast of rumors regarding the change, and the sights of certain teachers with either grins or whimpers on their faces as they now must pack up their things. Lugging their belongings together as they are about to depart from a room that would be covered in rubble in weeks time. The large windows we would pass by near the 200’s classr

Heat Wave

The 2018-19 school year has kicked literally on a hot streak. With the lack of air conditioning and seemingly non-existent air circulation in the majority of the classrooms, students and teachers are walking slowly through the halls, feeling sticky and oppressed. For years, the lack of air conditioning in the school has been the main complaint at the beginning and end of every school year and we just have to learn to deal with it. Based on what they’re telling us, the unbearable heat makes it tough for students to have the motivation to learn and it makes it extremely uncomfortable in the cafeteria during lunch. Senior, David Chatty, said, “The heat is unbearable and it’s the worst thing e

Adam Zangari is a free spirit

This past April, I received a call that would change my life forever. Fifty-one student journalists are selected from around the country to attend the Al Neuharth Journalism and Free Spirit conference in Washington, D.C. When I picked up my phone, a representative from the Newseum informed me that I had been selected to represent Rhode Island. It was by far the biggest honor of my life. I then got chewed out by Mr. Schofield for answering a phone call in the middle of English class. The next two months were full of anticipation. I had no clue what the conference would be like, and wasn’t sure how my fellow Free Spirits would be. May and June went by quickly, though, and on June 16th, I board

Football isn't about football anymore

The National Football Association used to be strictly about football. The talk was always about strictly football games being played on the field within the sixty-minute time frame. The talk was always about winners, losers, statistics. playoffs, and Super Bowls. A different approach is now taken. Controversy struck all of football when on August 14, 2016, quarterback Colin Kaepernick was seen kneeling during the national anthem in a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. A protest began as Kaepernick said, “ I have to stand up for the people that are oppressed”. A wild chain of events has occurred since his decision to protest, with multiple players across the association putting a k

It's not easy being new

Doors open, teachers and administration get ready for a new year, and buses release a new round of freshman to experience the famous four years called high school. When students reach high school, they are told to find a club, sport, or anywhere where they feel like they fit in. Freshman, Gabriella Feole, decided to play field hockey to make her transition easier. High school jitters are common and expected, but there are ways to feel more adjusted. On August 29 Gabriella Feole stepped into high school with nerves and left at the end of the day excited to experience the years to come. Every ninth grader is going through the same changes, so nobody is alone. There is a common misconception th
