By Heidi Raine
I recently friended my best friend’s mother on Facebook. The interaction went like this:“Heidie, you have a Facebook? I thought it was for old people.”“Haha yeah, I guess...do you have one?”“Yes! Friend me!”Kimber is now one of my 738 friends, a number that feels ob-scene but also doesn’t begin to capture all of my family, high school classmates, coworkers, old teachers, church friends, college friends, camp friends, sis-ter’s-church’s friends and obscure ...

The writer should never be ashamed of staring. There is nothing that does not require his attention.
Sitting in the library, looking through the thick-paned glass of the upper-level windows, I am staring. I am squinting and watching and questioning all that passes below. This is what I see:

The 2000s Are Making a Comeback
By Anna Harman
It’s crazy to think that the 2000s began over 20 years ago. Many current Cedarville students were born in the early 2000s, and it hardly feels like it was so long ago. It’s common that fashion changes over the years. People often get bored with certain looks and create new ones or go back to old ones that were retired for a while. In this case, 2000s fashion trends seem to be making a comeback in 2022.
The 2000s were notorious for awkward style choices such as low-rise ...
