  • Quest for the Best: No Waffling on this; West Egg it is

    By Lucy Lombardo The story of Southern food is teeming with generations of visionary chefs who have spent their lives refining their craft. Though not as popular as fried chicken, waffles are an integral part of Southern culture.

  • Ouija board? More like Ouija bored.

    “She’s gonna die. She’s gonna die. She’s gonna die,” the person next to me whispered right before a corpse dropped across the screen in the opening scene of this year’s new Halloween thriller. From the producer of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the producer of Insidious, Ouija opened in theaters on Friday. Ouija’s plot is set in motion when a […]

  • Piedmont neighborhood tunes out Music Midtown

    Peter Conlon, president of Live Nation Atlanta, which puts on Music Midtown each year, has always said “great cities have great music festivals.” In his view, Music Midtown is one of those for the city of Atlanta. This year, though, the show went on without the support of their Midtown neighborhoods. On July 31, the Midtown Neighbors’ Association, which represents […]

  • Fanatic behaviors disrupt stadium atmosphere

    The way I see it, the importance of an ideal sports fan is rooted in three separate roles: embracing a competitive environment, exhibiting sportsmanship from the stands and behaving themselves in a manner that represents the school or the city for whom the team plays in a positive light. When fans exhibit all three of these characteristics, they do much […]

  • Limited space bats away chances for softball success

    BY GRACIE GRIFFITH AND REILLY BLUM They’re not in the gym. They aren’t in the stadium. They aren’t in Piedmont Park, or even at any other APS facilities. Where is Grady’s elusive softball team? The softball players are forced to practice in the sliver of grass wedged between the trailers and Charles Allen Drive. Even though the team occasionally practices […]

  • A Walker on Sesame Street

    Taylor Walker did some amazing things in her high school years at Grady, and she’s done some amazing things since.

  • District puts safeguards in place in wake of cartoon controversy; experts agree creationism has no place in science class

    As the 2013-14 school year ended, a ninth-grade biology assignment brought the debate of teaching creationism in public schools into the national limelight. The assignment, which included a PowerPoint and accompanying guided notes packet, was intended to teach the standards of evolution and natural selection. The materials, however, included the definition of creationism and contained a controversial cartoon, which was […]
