We have been called the Kearny Komets since the beginning of time, literally. But I’ve always wondered why aren’t we called the Kearny Meteors?
In science comets, or as we call them “Komets,” are formed from dust and ice that have been compressed into basically a floating rock in space, BUT in the Kearny logo the so called “komet” is on fire which is the exact opposite of which it should be. Meteors are the ones that are engulfed in flame. Technically our colors are incorrect also, we are maroon because …
I’m having a problem with a person who eats with my group at lunch. He’s stinky, and annoying, and overall, he just makes me mad. How can I tell him to leave and not be mean about it?
Dear Mr. Clean,
I think what you need to do is be upfront and honest. Pull he/she aside and talk to that person about the problems you have with them. Be kind and understanding about their situation. Being upfront and honest is a great way to take care of problems. …

The Chinese zodiac uses 12 animals, each representing one year in a 12 year cycle. The first year is of the Rat, followed by the Ox as second, then by the Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, and Dog as the eleventh with the Pig as the last.
2010 is the year of the Tiger in the Chinese zodiac, which would make it the 4708th Chinese year. In western (or American) culture, its sign would most resemble an Aquarius horoscope. It started on February 15th earlier this year and …
I asked over 40 students which of the following they had preferred: Facebook or Myspace. Over 2/3 chose Facebook over Mysapce.
“Why is this,” you may ask. Well everyone is entitled to their own opinion as to why they prefer one over the other.
DMD student Angelica Sanchez stated, “I like Facebook more because it has a more mature sensation to it then Myspace where its only kids from middle school that talk about immature topics.” Many also prefer Facebook because it lets people join causes like “Breast Cancer …
A lot of you already know what STAR testing is and probably don’t care much about it- but you should. To most of us, (even myself at one time) it is one of the things we completely dreaded and don’t really see the point in, anyway. Ironically, however, STAR testing is one of the most important weeks of the school year.
I know you’re probably tired of hearing this, but you need to take the STAR tests seriously. How well you do on this test …

Reported by Lashane Sinclair, DMD 10th Grade
This last semester the 10th grade class completed their Crime Time semester project. Although there were positive aspects to the project there were also a few negative points that stand out. Here is what I thought about Crime Time.
The teachers did a good job with what they had. Most of the 10th grade team this year was new. This included teachers such as Jena Workman, Lindsey Spikula, Robert Carr, Erin Preston and Luke Corazza. These teachers did a really good job for which they …

There comes a time in everyone’s life when we have to move on, learn new things, and realize that there is a whole world out there for us, and for many seniors, including myself, that time is now. We have chosen to quickly jump aboard the boat where young adults can follow their aspirations and see where life takes us. I am going to early grad, and so it is time to pass on my position as Senior Editor to some else. So this is my tribute to not only …
