After having Barack Obama in the White House the past seven years, this country is in desperate need of change. The "change" Barack Obama brought only shrunk the middle class and hurt the people at the bottom even more than before. He has politicized nearly every single issue, and as a result, divided the country more than any president...
After effortlessly faking a drive, dropping Kawhi Leonard, and pump-faking a three, Stephen Curry steps back and knocks down a contested jumper. This play would have made highlight tapes even if a lesser defender had been guarding Curry, but it was the leading candidate of Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard? The Lebron James stopper Kawhi Leonard? The "NBA's Best All Around Defender" Kawhi...
Stepping into the MADI museum downtown, the surroundings appear more like a magic show than an art gallery. Loud, bold artwork explodes from every hidden crevice (even the restrooms). Young kids and adults alike play with shapes and create unique art on tablets adjacent to fifty-year-old art. Critics pace back and forth before each frame, gasping with shock before...

The exhibit started on November 7th and will continue until late January of the coming year. Following the 50th Anniversary of his Jesuit graduation, De’Ore has given back to Jesuit with his time and art, providing Jesuit with many watercolor pieces...

Walsh, Vice Chief of Naval Operations,  appeared before reporters at the Pentagon to explain the results of a month-long review of the detention facilities at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. Situated on a bay that Christopher Columbus described as “broad…with dark water, of unsuspected dimensions,” the Guantanamo Bay Naval Station has served...
“Kay is somebody of strong opinions. She is feisty and is very dedicated to the school and Jesuit’s education, but she is also very caring. She is certainly capable of standing up for herself.” - Fred Donahue, Admin. Go back 43 years ago to a time when 3D-television was a thing of dreams, when Jimi Hendrix serenaded the country with...
The entire packed auditorium at Fair Park focuses on Charles as he walks up to the stage, looking toward the principal of Jesuit High School, Fr. Michael Kammer, S.J.  Shaking his hand, Charles gazes out into the crowd of students watching him. This is not just any other night; it is the class of 1958’s graduation, a night filled...
