Life of a jean jacket

Life of a jean jacket

Leigh Ann Barnett, columnist

March 10, 2017

It was the spring of 1981 when my mom, 19 years old at the time, bought her first Levi’s jean jacket from the chain store Famous Barr, now Macy’s. The oversized boxy silhouette was all the rage, completing her goal to look the part of the “in crowd” with that jacket. The first year she had the...

Shoe trends straight from the hallway

Shoe trends straight from the hallway

Leigh Ann Barnett, Staff Writer

February 28, 2017

Walking through the halls I see three main trends: the classic Chuck Taylor Converse in white, white adidas sneakers, Chacos and ankle boots. Converse Chuck Taylors have a retro look, especially when they’re a little beat up; the imperfections they get after being worn for such a long time create a cha...

Kristin Priest, Staff Writer

December 20, 2016

As we enter the final weeks of 2016, the holidays return in full swing. Opportunities for the family get-togethers, outings, gift exchanges and recipe swaps exemplify December. The holiday season brings joy, but it is very easy to get overwhelmed with all the possibilities during the month. But fear...

Every two weeks, Justin and I go through our music to find the tracks that have been running through our heads non-stop each time adding five tracks apiece.

We’re Really Clef-er: the presidential one

Justin Cupps, News Editor

November 8, 2016

The POTUS playlist was created by Arts & Entertainment editor Dani Fischer and the blog written by News Editor Justin Cupps. With a simple read through of the song titles you probably figured out that this wasn’t anything at all like Vice President Joe Biden’s “2016 Summer Playlist” or President Obama’s ...

Cheap, easy and stylish looks for Halloween

Cheap, easy and stylish looks for Halloween

Kristin Priest and Leigh Ann Barnett

October 31, 2016

On Oct. 31, everyone always want to be prepped with an Instagram approved costume. Halloween grants us a time to dress up and become another persona, yet many high schoolers are rushed for time and low on funds. Searching for a Halloween costume that is unique and reasonable in price is a task in itself....

We’re Really Clef-er: Homecoming playlists for all

Justin Cupps

September 17, 2016

In lieu of homecoming, the two of us have decided to make two playlists of polar nature: one to get pumped to go to homecoming and the other to wallow in sadness or (in my case) play Super Smash Bros across various platforms with friends. If you wish to see the wallowing-in-sadness playlist, read the lower piece. P...

We’re Really Clef-er: Indie Folk Playlist

Justin Cupps

September 13, 2016

NOTE: I do suggest you listen to the playlist before reading this because it will make a lot more sense once you do. After finding another online newspaper that made weekly playlists based on holidays or other major events, the Pathfinder editorial board thought ‘We must have it!’; thus, this blo...
