Soulmates: Do they exist?

I believe that my parents, pictured above, are truly soulmates.

Rebekah Sems, Feature Editor

May 27, 2020

Ever since I was young, I always dreamed about having the ultimate best friend. Someone who liked all the things I liked, who was good at all the things I was good at, and who would always be around for me to hang out with. As I got older, I realized that what my younger self was after was to b...

Thirteen and Me

Ava Hollmann, Opinions Editor

May 27, 2020

Well, this is not how I thought I’d leave WCA. At the end of this year, I was supposed to have a fun, chill week with my teachers and friends. After this week, I was also supposed to have a track season, with rainy, early morning relays, hot afternoon practices, and personal best times under ...

A contaminated city

April 27, 2020

January 21, 2020, in retrospect, appears a rather insignificant day in the grand scheme of our nation’s storied history.

Wow, what a crazy world we live in. I never thought my second semester of senior year would look like this, and honestly, I never thought I would live through a global pandemic that would cause every school in the country to close, along with restaurants, universities, stores, and practically everyth...

COVID 19 Chronicles: Isabella

For those with anxiety, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused heightened symptoms.

March 25, 2020

My name is Isabella, and I have anxiety. This means that I often worry about little things, overanalyze everything, and begin to panic when I feel out of control. In everyday life, I manage pretty well; in fact, most people do not even know that I have anxiety.  But, when the national panic over COVID-19 ...

“Let’s Talk About… it.”

Though it may seem daunting as a Christian, it is proper and necessary to explore the way in which God intended sex to bless a husband and wife.

Ava Hollmann, Opinions Editor

March 4, 2020

Sex. Now that I’ve captured your attention, let’s talk about one of the most awkward subjects in Christianity, and frankly conversation as a whole.

March 3, 2020

In order to truly understand the financial situation at Westminster, we have to go back to the beginning, when the first ideas of transitioning to the campus we are at today came about. Around 2002, the piece of property that we call home, formally West County Technical School, became available and th...
