I believe that the most important attribute to being a reporter is curiousity. In the article it says that a good reporter "takes pleasure in the new, and in the old, in the history...that got us where we are." This is so important because you have to love facts and stories, old and new to have prior knowledge about things. This prior knowledge would also help you be very excited about getting the next amazing story. I think curiousity is essential because if you don't have curiousity, then your only motivation for getting great stories is approval from the boss and a paycheck. You can get money doing any job, but reporting is special. Reporting is loving news and being passionate about sharing it with others. <33. Kels

Caffeine Machines

One issue at Edina High School is that things can change and we don't get much of a say in them. A recent example of this is how all our pop machines got taken out of the school by the EHS board of education. I fully understand how big of a problem obesity is, but I believe that kids should still get the right to choose. Taking away pop is not going to make kids stop craving it & give us better habits as we grow older; if anything it makes us want it more. I think most of the kids miss their daily caffeine fix :) & will probably just start bringing pop from home. Now we're back where we started, not really solving any obsesity problems at all.

Till next time,
