Nathan's column: Naming annoying noises
Science, having solved the rest of the worlds problems, now appears well on the way to telling us all what sounds we find most annoying. Surprisingly, not a single entry in the top 11 involves the assembled cast of all those Real Housewives shows. The work, according to a recent...

Column: The coolest things in town
News programs in December and January are usually stuffed with Top Ten lists. Although they are a handy way to fill a little space in a column, until two weeks ago I hadn't yet resorted to them. Then for the first time ever, I decided to cull the best of Farmington into one giant...

Column: The kindness of strangers
All too often, I have to write about bad things done by bad people. Frankly, it gets a little old after a while. So when something good happened to me last weekend, I figured I was only due to write a column. A column about someone good. Really, I don't know too much more about this...

Column: All a-Twitter
I did something earlier this month I'm not very proud of. It's not the first time, I have to admit. Just one example in a long line of them. I signed up for something called Twitter. It is like the blogs everyone used to keep, but dumbed down. Like, way down. I know. Scary, right? You...

Student column: The impact of one
In today's society individuals are often overlooked. Many people are working for good just by everyday acts of kindness, but their impact is not known until they are out of the picture. On Tuesday, Farmington High School held an assembly featuring a program called Rachael's Challenge....
