Last spring I had the privilege of spending the day with Debra Bass, a fashion reporter from the St. Louis Post Dispatch.  We spent the day touring the offices, visiting the old printing press, grabbing lunch at Pi Pizza in the Delmar Loop and running around town collecting items for the latest spring...

The 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame vote will forever live in infamy as only the third vote since 1960 to deny Hall of Fame (HOF) entry to every single one of the 37 players on the ballot. Not one of the eligible players received the necessary 427 votes from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America...

In the wake of the horrible tragedy that occurred in Connecticut, I feel it is important to address what I feel this means for Lafayette and the other Rockwood Schools. It seems that 2012 was an eye opening year for public safety and gun violence. It seemed almost every month a story came out about...

The United States was built upon the notion that everyone should have the right to speak their mind, regardless of what consequences might come with that.  But, with those rights comes the responsibility to, as a good citizen, know what is and is not appropriate to voice. If we limited the speech...

I haven’t been feeling well the last few days, ever since tragedy struck the once-unknown city of Newtown. In my mind’s eye, I can still see the Image staff and myself crowded around the television, watching in shock and horror as the news of the shooting unfolded. I felt like I was going to...

11. Dishonored Dishonored is so full of great ideas and deft execution that its inclusion on this list feels mandatory for me, but in all honesty, it’s still a product that lacks. The low chaos ending is decent thematically, but from a gameplay perspective, it’s far too simple and no fun at all. Dishono...

Pintrest seems to be the favored social network for high school girls looking for crafty, new styles to try out.  Everyone seems to be talking about the hair styles they "pinned last night" or the nail art they "discovered on Pinterest."

A style? A playlist on iTunes? A personality? Many people believe that to be 'country' one most own nothing but cowboy boots and jeans, drive an old pickup truck and blast songs such as "Barefoot Blue Jean Night" by Jake Owen or "Crazy Girl" by the Eli Young Band at top notch whole driving home to your...

In my AP Art History class, taught by Jean Peters, we just finished studying the Dark Ages.  There were plenty of book illuminations to be studied, but something else caught my attention. Medieval heirlooms.  There's something fascinating knowing that heirlooms were around even in the fifth century,...

Ever since I moved to Missouri from Michigan, I have had to deal with the bashing that comes with being a Detroit sports fan. When I walk the halls wearing my Red Wings jersey or Tigers jersey, I am ridiculed and questioned. "How could you wear that wear that? This is St. Louis." I simply respond...

Who wouldn't want to be a part of a school where their motto is "That all students and staff feel loved, celebrated, and respected."? At our school that is exactly what the Be The Change Team is trying to accomplish. After Challenge Day, hosted on Sept. 13, Lafayette staff and students worked...
