The three weekend-long festivities ended on Feb. 11, the beginning of the Lunar New Year.

Rickys TAKE 5 - Valentines Day Edition

Ricky’s TAKE 5 – Valentine’s Day Edition

Ricky Miller, Entertainment Editor | February 14, 2024
“Say Anything” (1989) This Cameron Crowe-directed romantic-comedy with drama finds John Cusack’s Lloyd Dobler falling for high school valedictorian Diane Court (Ione Skye). I really like the relationship of Diane and her father, played by John Mahoney. A+ “Joe Versus the Volcano” (1990) This dark comedy with romantic undercurrents has a dry sense of humor, especially in the beginning when Joe (Tom Hanks) gets fired from his extremely boring and uneventful job by Mr. Waturi (Dan Hedaya).

STUDENT VIEWPOINTS: Favorite Thanksgiving foods

November 23, 2023
Ais Bannister: “We usually cook at my grandma’s house – turkey, mash potatoes, green beans, dinner rolls, just lost of stereotypical Thanksgiving food.” Jasmine Gambia: “For Thanksgiving, I’m going back home to my parents’ main house. We’re going to hangout. It’s nothing formal, it’s just Filipino food, it’s traditional stuff like grilled pork, exotic stuff.”

Replanting hope and greenness

A dozen maple trees from the Richland Tree Farm were planted on campus to celebrate a very special Arbor Day on April 29. Although this is an annual event, this year was even more meaningful than usual, since the new trees replaced ones that were cut down last year due to the emerald ash borer beetle infestation that has been affecting North Texas for years.

OPINION: Indigenous Peoples Day

October 25, 2022

Because Oct. 10 was Indigenous Peoples’ Day, I want to share a few thoughts about an article I read the other day on concerning the Trail of Tears. It stated that Andrew Jackson wanted to remove “native peoples” from their lands to “make room for settlers and often for speculators who made large profits from the purchase and sale of land.”

If this was the case, why not point settlers and speculators to the lands (modern-day Oklahoma) where the State of Georgia and Andrew Jackson wanted to expel natives? If the land was as good as Jackson made it out to be, why not take it for themselves? Was not this land already available? Would it not be easier for all parties involved to send “settlers” and “speculators” to the unpopulated lands, rather than to force a nation out of its territory, and then deal with a “Trail of Tears”’?
