Finding God’s Truth

Jeff Palmquist, Columnist

March 28, 2020

Picture a room full of more than 1,000 people locking their arms behind each other’s backs. A sudden, simple sway overtakes the crowd, and like a wave, the lyrics of the Rocks' Alma Mater move steadily through the silence.  This moment between Trinity brothers will forever and always be my m...

A Family for Life

Andrew Hamill, Columnist

March 28, 2020

Imagine walking through the halls your first day of high school -- just a tiny freshman unsure what you're doing. I finally found my locker, and I know all I have to do is open it, and the rest of the day will run smoothly. But no, it has to be jammed. I struggled for a couple of minutes as the hall...

Men of Faith and Men of Character

Preston Romanov, Editor in Chief

March 28, 2020

It’s been three and a half years of morning routines. Once again, I dress for school, putting on my regular school khaki pants, a buttoned-down dress shirt and a tie. As I grab some breakfast and my books, I reflect on the days at a special place called Trinity High School. On the drive I think...

Maximum Effort of the Soul

Gus Boyer, Contributing Columnist

March 28, 2020

Clang….Clang….. An old church bell, hoisted up by worn-out rope into the towering heights of the second story chapel -- a great monument above the tattered sheet metal and concrete houses that surrounded it -- rang out. This was not the start of a Mass, or even a small communion. As the be...

Provide a Path to Citizenship for Immigrants

Nick Huls, Contributing Columnist

March 19, 2020

We live in a time where immigration policy is dictated by sound bites. While towering walls and garrisons of troops provide tantalizing tag lines on campaign advertisements and in stump speeches, they fail to recognize the economic, political and social complexities of the situation. No public polic...

Tax on Carbon Emissions Could Save the Future

Bryce Thompson, Contributing Columnist

March 18, 2020

Humanity is at a crossroads, facing the gravest crisis in its history. Although the climate is constantly fluctuating due to natural factors such as solar variability, orbital position alterations and volcanic activity, the shifting climate is increasingly caused by human-induced variables. The effects of c...

Many More Issues to Address Before Mars Blast-Off

Michael Chou, Contributing Columnist

March 3, 2020

“Prepare for landing in T-minus 15 minutes.” The astronaut rouses himself from perhaps his last unpleasant nap. Pushing himself out of bed, he leaves his sleeping chamber and greets the other four people on the ship. One crew member floats over to the radio and begins the regular check with Missi...

Kentucky Needs to Expand Language Requirement

Kentucky Needs to Expand Language Requirement

Gus Boyer, Contributing Columnist

January 24, 2020

“She was called Belisa Crepusculario, not by her baptism or on recommendation of her mother, but because she sought the name until she found it. Ever since, the name had adorned her. Her profession was to sell words." “Dos palabras," by Isabella Allende, tells the story of a woman who creates and ...

No Need for MacGyver — Just a Bit of Duct Tape

No Need for MacGyver — Just a Bit of Duct Tape

Jack Brown, Columnist

October 23, 2019

Being a younger sibling makes you trained to see opportunity. Sustained by a constant stream of hand-me-down clothes, books, and even games, I learned from an early age you need to be resourceful. When my older brother moved away for grad school, there was no delay before I migrated to his room; it ...

A Rose — or Watermelon — by Any Other Name

A Rose — or Watermelon — by Any Other Name

Gus Boyer, Columnist

October 23, 2019

Crimson, luscious, and full, the tomato sat cradled in the knotted hands of the sunbaked old man. Towering over me with his beanstalk frame, the farmer gently placed the fruit in my uncalloused palms and told me, “Here is a tomato. Treat it with the care of an infant.” As I cautiously set the tomato o...

A Little Help from Ronald McDonald to Patty Melt the Cultural Divide

A Little Help from Ronald McDonald to Patty Melt the Cultural Divide

Nick Huls, Columnist

October 23, 2019

My heart was a drum roll in my throat and my stomach a leaden mess. I shifted my weight to my left leg, bit my lip and peered down the muted, gray terminal with its shiny linoleum floors. With my brow furrowed, I stretched to see over the crowd people that began flowing from the narrow hallway. My h...
