Editorial: Homecoming a success despite incident
For the past few years, Farmington’s annual homecoming week has been pretty successful. This year, though, one incident could have damaged that reputation. Thankfully, it didn’t. The 2014 homecoming week started off on a great note. On the first day, Sept. 27, the Farmington...

Veterans Day. It comes around once a year. At Farmington High School, we like to celebrate Veterans Day in a special way. We celebrate our veterans by hosting a Patriotic Day dinner and presentation. The food at this event is spectacular. It’s something that many people look...

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: It's tough to get the lights right
There is no shortage of treasured holiday traditions. Every year we gather with the same family members and eat the same foods. We listen to the same six Christmas songs on a loop at every single store while we wait in interminable lines because we put off all of our shopping until...

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....
