Column: Self love is the key to surviving personal challenges

As I sat in my chair waiting for my name to be called “T’Aja Charnay Cameron,” I held back tears that I had accumulated in four short years that felt like a lifetime. And as I walked across the stage, I felt nothing, and I barely even smiled. The day had turned into just another day of the week.

Opinion: Why we should limit the federal government

n 2018, the idea of the federal #government intervening in everyday life is normal among young people and Americans in general.

It is not a partisan issue – it is getting back to America’s roots.

Column: Though new technology is more convenient, nothing compares to the beautiful crackle of vinyl

In my house, music is always playing. It is not uncommon to wake up to the sound of Journey, Tom Petty, or Van Halen. Likewise, no car ride is complete without the classics. At age 10, I could sing every word to nearly every song by Kiss. For me, music has always played a large role in my life. I am a firm believer that music makes the hard times easier and the good times better.
