As the 2019 New Year’s party decorations are taken off the shelves, red and pink petals and chocolate boxes are exchanged for shoppers who desire the sentiments of the impending commercial holiday.

As we begin the new year, resolutions arise, and resolutions soon decline; with the hope of a positive outlook on life many fall short or let the evil of the world disrupt their beauty.
Recent current events have arisen such as the longest government shutdown in history (affecting federal employees and allowing for them to go unpaid), an extremist attack at a Kenyan hotel and an ISIS led suicide explosion in Syria injuring United States service members are just some of the many unsettling events that have happened already in 2019.
A widespread event over the past couple of years with an expression of reform, unity and standing up against society in a way to protect the civil rights and sanctity of the people has been the Women’s March.
Amid controversy in the 2019 Women’s March, followers of the original group accused them of being biased or more favoring of white women; the group is believed to be ignoring real issues that others with diverse backgrounds struggle with on a daily basis. This affected the organization and the movement in a negative way causing the state of the United States and the overall sanity of the groups beliefs to be divided.
Hearts pounding. Nerves rattling. Football is just a game, right? Wrong. Tears, confetti, fans fleeing and fists in the air. One is a champion and one fell to defeat. This game was not an ordinary conference championship game. It meant more. There was history between the coaches, the teams and the fan bases. On the field, battling it out to decide the others fate, and the victorious champions of the SEC are the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Money flying in the air, did someone just waste it or spend it wisely? Alabama and Georgia were back at it again. As for Georgia fans that phrase leaves a bitter taste in their mouths.

As many fall sports come to a close, the wrestling team prepares to kickoff the winter season with passion, intent and victory. Along with a new season comes a new list of achievable goals and a set of guidelines to help the team perform to the best of their ability.
Head wrestling coach and Bible teacher Brian St. James said, “We have had a massive amount of success over the past two seasons under coach Stromie. We are a much younger team this season after graduating 10 state placers in the last two years. My goal for our team this season is to win the area dual tournament and have 4 individual state placers. We have a great group of underclassmen who I hope can gain invaluable experience this season by filling in some key varsity positions.”
