Lt. Jason Menard, a Worcester fire lieutenant, died last week in a third-floor house fire after saving two of his colleagues from a tragic death. He was supposed to leave for Disney World with his wife and three kids the next morning. My family and I were around the dinner table when this heartbreaking...

Silence is awkward. It's uncomfortable. It drags on five times as long as it actually lasts, and our generation is terrified of it. We live in a world that is connected at any given moment at all times of the day, but we’ve never been more disconnected from each other. Each and every one of us holds...

With the college football season more than halfway done, one question comes to my mind: who is going to win the Heisman? Everyone will say that the winner will be this quarterback or that quarterback, but I wonder if this will be the first time in 22 years that a defensive player or transfer quarterback ...

Quarterback Boom: Lamar Jackson (Baltimore Ravens) If I told you that one man could produce numbers that would make him both QB1 and RB1 eligible, would you believe me? You probably wouldn’t. Well, up until this year that is. Lamar Jackson has posted Madden-like numbers through the first eight weeks ...

The Washington Nationals came into the 2019 season with some of the lowest expectations in the league. They started the offseason by losing their star player, Bryce Harper, in free agency to a divisional rival. No one expected Washington to make a deep playoff run. Washington was twelve games under .500 in ...

Album Review: ‘Ghosteen’ by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

October 21, 2019

When I heard there was a new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album coming out, I almost fell out of my chair. I was introduced to the band right before their last album, 2016’s “Skeleton Tree.” That record contained sparse instrumentation - drums, synths and soft orchestration - but was full of emotion that ...

Cliques: a group of people with shared interests, commonly found in high school, given assumptions based on unfair and often untrue stereotypes. Also the reason why you don’t know much about the kid who sits next to you in math class.  If you’ve ever attended – actually, if you’ve ever eve...

Over the span of her 13-year career, Taylor Swift has released six vastly different albums that vary both in topic and in genre. “Lover,” Swift’s seventh album, released Aug. 23 this year, pays tribute to them all. All of the varying artistic styles Swift has used in the past come together i...

Week five in the world of college football has come to an end, and to be completely honest, I’m not impressed. The week six Associated Press (AP) poll was released on Sunday, Sept. 29, and the top ten teams are as follows:  Alabama Clemson Georgia Ohio State LSU Oklahoma Auburn Wi...

October 2, 2019

School serves the sole purpose of providing an education, a privilege that we students can sometimes under-appreciate. It’s easy to fall into the trap of hyper-focusing on a letter grade, and it's difficult to look past the point system and simply take advantage of the opportunity to learn. For ma...

Warrior Weekly: Antonio Brown’s Downfall

CJ Brown

September 27, 2019

When the Patriots signed Antonio Brown, I immediately started to compare it to our Randy Moss acquisition in 2007. That acquisition led to the single greatest regular season in Patriots history. As a Pats fan, I couldn’t help but think that this big-name wide receiver signing was exactly the piece...
