Nothing reminds one that teachers are real people like seeing them in gym clothes. Thursday’s Student-Council event was consequently very eye-opening, as Mamaroneck High School students filled the Palmer Gym to cheer on their teachers in a good old-fashioned game of dodgeball.

A Matter of Time

By Andrew Ballard

On Oct. 7, 1998—a dry, windless Wednesday in Laramie, Wyoming—a bicyclist motored down a long country road. To his sides lay wide, open fields, and in one of them, he saw what at first glance seemed to be a scarecrow, wavering limply on the strands of twine that bound it to a ranch fence.
The figure on the fence,however, was not a scarecrow but a 21-year-old boy. He hung in a coma, burned, beaten, covered in blood and nearly dead after having been knotted to the post 18 hours before at the hands of two men he had never known. Continue reading “A Matter of Time”

Compared to the stellar 5-1 win in the sectional champion- ship, the first ten minutes of play in the New York State Regional Ice Hockey Final did not look good for the Mamaroneck Tigers. The Massena Red Raiders were off to a much quicker start, peppering goalie Tommy Spero ‘17 with 13 shots in the opening frame. The puck was mostly in the Tigers’ defensive end and their style of play was messier than the normally crisp approach fans have become accustomed to. “We had a tough time in the beginning of the game matching their physical play and breaking the puck out, but once we got into the rhythm of things, we were flying,” Senior captain Jason Bienstock 16’ said.

Kendrick Lamar limps to center stage. He is in front of a chain gang, surrounded by a dark stage. The stage resembles a jail. When he opens his mouth, he lights a fire under America.  Continue reading “The Importance of Kendrick Lamar”

By Emma Gottsegen

Every food has a history, but not many foods have a history like matzo ball soup. Each year, millions of Jews share in the celebration of Passover—the holiday commemorating the liberation of the Hebrew slaves from Egypt. The Passover meal, known as the Seder, is about remembering Jewish history and retelling the story of the Jews. Matzo, which is eaten for eight days in place of any grain or bread items, represents the unleavened bread the Jews ate while fleeing Egypt. Continue reading “How to Make the Best Matzo Ball Soup”

Fuller House Reboots Old Classic

By Sam Lurie

Nostalgia for the good old days of television manifests itself in several ways: the heartrending thought of not hearing Urkel of “Family Matters” ask, “Did I do that?” along with the tears shed over the lack of any “Friends” reunion. Fortunately, the pain should slightly subside knowing that “Fuller House” is now on Netflix. Continue reading “Fuller House Reboots Old Classic”

The Globefather: Bob Sacamano

“Advice you can’t refuse”

Dear Globefather,

Recently, I was introduced to a friend of a friend whom I hit it off with, and after spending sometime together he offered me some gum. I tried some, and it was pretty good. Turns out it’s from Chinatown and easy to get. This guy sees that I liked it so now he keeps driving back and forth to Chinatown to buy me cases of it. How do I tell him to stop?

Existential Riddles

By Emma Kaneti

What is the longest word in the dictionary?

Smiles, because there’s a mile between each ‘s.’

Will thinks of all the leagues of girls with beautiful smiles whom he’s been miles away from getting. Will considers an outlet for his built up desperation and self- hatred: screaming “pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanokoniosis” at the remorseless dictionary.

More Zzzs, Please

By Sophia Glinski

Hearing the beeping of her alarm clock, she groggily reaches out a hand trying to find the off button. She lets her head fall back to the pillow. Forcing herself to sit up, she flips on the light, the brightness of the room a harsh awakening. She drags herself out of bed and stumbles downstairs, her eyes heavy and swollen. All she wants to do is climb back into her cozy bed. Resisting the temptation, she continues to get ready for school. Continue reading “More Zzzs, Please”
