A day in a Catholic High School. At a first glance, St. James was nothing more than a school with 800 kids. To think about South, with only 800 students gives me the chills.

So this month, I made homemade lemon bars. A lot. Actually since school started, I’ve made four different 9x13 pans of lemon bars.

According to civicyouth.org, 21.5 percent of young adults ages 18-29 vote.

College Now and taking the Advanced Placements tests in May are both ways to save money, earn college credit and of course get a head start on college education while in high school.

It seems as though cable TV is becoming less and less attractive to many people.  With services like Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime, the need for cable TV is unnecessary and almost cumbersome.  Living in a technological age comes with new forms of entertainment.  Almost everything is online now; streaming...
