Last Friday night, standing under the scoreboard, at the football game, I was so proud of FRHS.  Not only because of the win, but also because of the determination to succeed.  I saw determination, commitment and hope in the eyes of our players and fans.  I saw student athletes give it their all. I saw fans screaming ...

Searching for the right college is stressful—finding one that has your desired major, a well-established program and a lively campus is a challenge.  Not to mention, completely funding your post-graduation education is becoming harder and harder as tuition rates rise and financial aid falls.  Whil...

  In the past week, all of Colorado has been on standby waiting and watching to see the outcome of a horrific abduction case. Although we all hoped for the best, we knew that after a body had been found the outcome was, in fact, bleak. When the body was identified to be that of the ten-year-old girl abducted the previous week, we were ...

Dear Fossil Ridge football team,   No matter what the score is, or whether we are winning or losing, I somehow always lose my voice at the game. Football games are a highlight for FRHS students in the fall. We look forward to cheering you guys to victory, and supporting you through some ...

It has come to my attention, by both a comment on my first Litterbox segment and by many of my friends, that my title is not self-explanatory enough. I’ve decided, for the sake of all seven of my readers, to enlighten you all.             My cat, who is gorgeous and filled with more contempt for humans and dogs than a senior for f...

Have you ever just wanted to sit and eat a bucket of ice cream and cry? Last week, I had that exact feeling come over me. The whole event started the night before; I was at a football game for my high school. My sister, a college freshman, graciously agreed to drive to and from the game. As we were leaving the...

  I will not write a cheesy letter to incoming freshmen, sophomore, junior, or senior students. Falling into that trap will be the end of me, not to mention an over-used waste of pixels in my wonderful column. Not to say that letters to students are bad. All I want to do is write something different, something original. This is something I’ve wanted ...

Over these next four years, everything about you is going to change, from t...

Life is full of extremely difficult circumstances. Circumstances that can run us rampant, beat us down, break us apart, and leave everyone wanting someone to hold them and answer the ever persistent question that they have pounding in their heads: Why? To be honest, I can’t tell you why the most horrific of...

I have always been an avid reader. I easily get lost in the pages of a good book. For me, the last chapter of any story is always the best.  The anticipation builds until the very end of the story. I must admit, even, that there have been times when I have read the last chapter of a book before actually reading the pre...

Dear Seniors, Remember when we were freshmen? We were so young and well, brainless. We thought that we were the coolest thing that ever happened. Don’t pretend like it’s not true! That feels like it was yesterday, doesn’t it? Time certainly does fly. As we begin our last year of high school, ...

Dear class of 2013, Can you believe that we are finally seniors? I still can remember the first day of freshman year so clearly, and now we are embarking on our final year here at Fossil. The class of 2013 is a special class. We were the first ever freshman to walk through this school. We are a class ful...
