Next year, Logan High School is trying a new type of schooling called the Innovation Program. The point is to make school more individualized for one hundred trial students from each grade, with the plan to include all South Campus students and give them a little bit more freedom with their schooling.
This new program is based off of the Innovations Campus in Salt Lake City. The staff, who went down to view the campus, thought it was a great idea.
“I was impressed with the engagement of the students in their personalized education,” said Rayann Hansen, a counselor.
"I think it'll be awesome for students who can keep themselves on track."
A team of five people from USU came in on April 27 to talk to any students that wanted to know about USU and the financials and the programs. They met with students in the Counseling Center from 10:30 to 12:35.
Though many went with the intent to talk about financial aid, students found themselves talking to the representatives that came. Senior Austin Baugh took this time to ask about the different programs and different financial options. “I talked to them, and USU is going to be a good time. I’m going to be studying psychology up there and it should be a great time.”
"USU is going to be a good time."
Everyone loves to take a luxury vacation from their hard work every once-in-a-while. But for some, the sad reality is that they simply can’t afford to take a plane or go on a cruise. Instead, their trips have to be more modest, which usually means they’ll be driving to their destination. And driving means wasted time out of the fun in the vacation. With life in the 21st century however, there’s always a way to solve these so-called problems.
Hyperloop One is one of the hottest topics you may hear about endlessly in the summer of 2017, and most definitely for many more years to come. Why, you may ask? Three words… High-Speed Transportation. During the summer this year, Hyperloop will host a competition where thousands of engineers will strive to create an efficient, safe, and clean prototype of the first 700 MPH transportation train that could take tourists the same distance as planes, at the same speed, for five percent of the cost. In the CEO of Hyperloop, Rob Lloyd’s words, “We’re not saving you money; we’re saving you time.” Time does play a huge role in the high-speed train, but to be completely honest, it also saves you a lot of money.
"We're not saving you money; we're saving you time."
Prom was different this year compared to other years. I say that because it was supposed to be junior prom, but the junior class officers decided to change it to prom so more people could go. What made it even more different is they decided to have one of the junior class officers DJ for prom, Rebecca Kiflom. They asked her to take over DJ and she asked me to help her out, too. We both were the DJ’s for the night. It’s different because I don’t think they’ve ever had any students DJ for prom.
The theme for this year’s prom was ‘’Forever Young.’’ The junior class officers decided to do that because you’re only young once. And I thought it was a perfect theme, because again, it was different--at least I have not ever heard any other Logan High dances with the theme Forever Young. As a bonus, there is even a song originally by Alphaville, too.
As far as I know, we were the first Logan High students to ever DJ for the prom.
The Hi-Los left Logan on March 1 and arrived to Orlando Florida on March 2. When the judges were done collecting their results, the Hi-Los managed to snatch 1st in Military, 3rd in Kick, and 4th in Officer -- impressive results!
On arrival to Florida, Hi-Lo Emma Cox said the weather was already better than how it was back in Utah. Before it was the military dance, Cox said she had such an excitement deep down, urging her to dance.

Recently, the “War on Terror” in the Middle East has caused the largest influx of Middle Eastern refugees to the Unites States and Europe in history. Although almost all refugees are simply trying to make a better life for themselves and not creating problems, a large number of “western world” citizens have created a stereotype, grouping the terrorist groups in the Middle East into the same group as those who are Muslim.
As xenophobia seems to be plaguing Europe and the United States, we may see more companies restricting certain groups of society from being hired.

Hold your breath, make a wish, count to three. Now count to a much higher number, such as 5,000. Why 5,000, you may ask? Because that’s the average amount of money it takes to grant an ill-stricken child their one wish or dream.
Many children all around the world get sick one way or another, from the flu, the common cold, sometimes even chicken pox. But there are diseases and viruses that some children get that either can’t be cured or will take a very long time to cure, leukemia being one of them. These children who can see the hooded figure down the street or a light at the end of a tunnel are frightened and are in pain. But when there’s trouble for these children, there’s a fairy-godmother or godfather there to ensure them happiness in these hard times. There’s an organization here in the United States that acts as those wish givers: Make-A-Wish America.
“It’s an absolutely noble cause that we were able to rally behind and to be able to reach our goal again this year. I am very grateful to the student body.”
Since the rise of the Iranian Republic of Islam in the 1980s, the Russian Federation in the 1990s, and most recently, the corruption of the Assad Regime in Syria in the early 2000s, both the Middle East and Europe have been dealing with an ongoing, shifting balance of power that has and will affect for years the political atmosphere of multiple nations that otherwise would be unscathed by outside influence.
Before the outbreak of the terrorist organization ISIS in 2011, Sweden had ended its 109-year-old mandatory military draft in 2010. Their ideas to get rid of it were not out-of-the-blue. They only had a total of 5,000 soldiers conscripted that year, a mere 10-percent of the amount mandated to join during the Cold War Era. The end to required military service seemed uplifting to Sweden, as peace looked to be just around the corner. But the world in 2010 looked significantly less violent than it does today.
“The re-activating of conscription is needed for military readiness.”
