Barney’s Brunch House is a local brunch restaurant located in McKinney, TX. I have been there countless times and I am always pleasantly surprised by how delightful the food and service is. It took 20-25 minutes to be seated due to the restaurant always being busy. I recently ordered the classic French toast with a side of waffle fries and a glass of iced sweet tea. The French toast was warm and flavorful and was served with whipped butter as well as maple syrup, however, it tasted slightly of eggs. The waffle fries were crispy and savory, and the sweet tea was very refreshing. It took a bit longer to get served, however, the employees were very friendly and the order was correct. The restaurant was very clean...

Phones Distract

February 5, 2020

How long has it been since you’ve looked at your phone? one minute, maybe two? You could be reading this on your phone as we speak. In today’s up-to-date and speedy society phones have very quickly taken a cozy place in people’s lives. As their companion, anxiety sponge, and most important item. They are very useful indeed, however, do they do more harm than good? In regards to the safety and health of our youth and current students, I believe they can cause more serious long term effects and ...

Review: Lady Bird

Gracie Fillet

January 23, 2020

Lady Bird (2017)  Greta Gerwig’s solo directorial debut is a phenomenal coming of age story about a vibrant, strong-willed girl as she goes through her first love, first heartbreak, and truths behind what it means to be popular all wrapped up in an hour and 35 minute emotional cyclone. Set in Sacramento, CA, Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) is a high school senior with dreams about going to a college in “a city with culture” and ultimately leaving her hometown despite her mother’s feelings towards it due to financial struggles. In typical teenage fashion, Lady Bird ditches her best friend Julie (Bernie Feldstein) to be able to become friends with the most popular people (Timothée ...

  On November 13th, 2019, Lonestar High School was under close watch in the hours of 9am-10am. Students reported a student had been showing off what appeared to be his gun on the bus on the way to school. About 2,000 students were put into a mandatory lockdown and lockout drill until further notice, and around 15 police cars could be seen surveying the perimeter of the school. The surrounding schools- Stafford Middle School, and Phillips Elementary School- also followed the lockdown protocol as an extra precaution. At 10:20 a.m., Frisco PD released a statement saying the issue had been “resolved”, but without any other explanation. The student in question has been located, and no one was harmed.  This...
