    The Gen Z of Politics

    Cover Photo Credit: www.orlandosentinel.com By Denise Uy (Feature Editor) On August 28th, a handful of Nease students were able to take their first few steps in American politics—as those who were eligible to vote were able to directly participate in American democracy for the first time in this year’s primary season. This year, Florida’s political atmosphere is in full-swing as the state prepares to elect a new governor in November, with former Governor Rick Scott (R) becoming ineligible to serve another term. Along with the gubernatorial election, Florida prepares to routinely elect representatives for its twenty-seven congressional districts and one available Senate seat for the federal government’s midterm elections. Though previously serving…

    Sharks Took Over Halftime

    By Brady Lorch (Sports Editor) During halftime at the Nease vs. Ponte Vedra game on the 24th of August at Nease High School, members of the Nease band and color guard were disappointed when they couldn’t perform their full show at this important rivalry game. The reason for this was that Ponte Vedra performed both parts of their performance when they were only supposed to perform the first part. This extended performance cut into precious time for Nease’s performance, allowing them to do only one song before they had to give the field back to the football teams. Many students and parents were excited to see their friends or children…

    Cover Photo Credit: Lily McKenna By: Lily McKenna (Social Media Manager) and Halie Childress (Layout Editor)   For the 2018-2019 school year, Nease has a few exchange students from around the world. They have experienced things differently than us Nease-natives; however, they’re also normal kids just like all of us.   We decided to interview one of these students to learn about their experiences when moving to a whole new country. In addition, we have some tips on how to better welcome an exchange student to our school.   Joris Louvier, a French exchange student who is currently attending Nease for his junior year, decided to share some thoughts about his experience…

    Senior Expectations vs. Reality

    By Bre Jarvis (Editor-in-Chief) Senior year is the greatest year of your life: unless you’re a senior, of course. Sorry to crush your dreams, but being a senior just isn’t everything you’ve dreamed up in that innocent little mind of yours. So, to help prepare you for reality, I’ve prepared a list of some of the expectations you might have about senior year vs. the reality of actually being a senior. Expectation: underclassmen in the halls will part before you like the Red Sea Reality: you’re still trudging along at 1 mph with everybody else, the cheese-grater walls slowly scraping your flesh off Expectation: you’ll feel confident now that you’re…
