(Above) The beautiful waterways of Venice provide breathtaking views. However, the city of Venice is no stranger to crime and death. While the waterways are beautiful, they contain a rich and rather haunted history. Whether it is polluted waters or the dead bodies of cursed citizens, the waters of the city of Venice are a history waiting to be explored.

(Above) Conan Bickford has many big responsibilities as a part of the LHP security team. A lot of these jobs often go over-looked by students because they are things that normally would not cross our minds. One of these responsibilites is to ensure that all safety signs stay up. Bikers and walkers often knock down the “No Tresspassing” signs around campus. Mr. Bickford must ensure that these signs stay put to make sure every Lake Highland student and staff member is safe.

(Above) So much work was put into publishing this book. Endless hours of writing any time and in any place all paid off when Isabella Delbakhsh received her first copy of Freedom Speaks in the mail. Publishing her own book, let alone becoming an Amazon Best Seller, was no easy feat and a remarkable achievement. Let this be an inspiration to make a difference and leave a positive mark on the world around you as well. After all, Delbakhsh is proof that people of any age can advocate for change.

(Above) Currently, only Universal Studios hosts Halloween Horror Nights. However, there are plans set in the future for Islands of Adventure to possibly also host the event. This new change could add more scare zones, haunted houses, and shows for guests to enjoy. But for now, only Universal Studios lights up the night with its spooky decorations that are sure to give guests a fright before even entering.

(Above) Concerts are undeniably crucial to the vitality and essence of folk music. Folk music, at its core, is an art form rooted in community and human connection. Live performances are the lifeblood of this genre, as they provide an unparalleled platform for artists to engage with their audience in an intimate and authentic manner. Folk concerts, or better yet, festivals, offer an environment where stories are shared, traditions are preserved, and emotions are conveyed with raw sincerity. Folk concerts also serve as a way to promote cultural heritage, allowing artists to pass down oral traditions and keep ancient songs and stories alive. This is seen best through not-so-mainstream artists such Creole folk singer, Bo Dollis’s concerts before his passing in 2015.  Through concerts, folk music finds its truest expression, preserving its authenticity and reminding us of the timeless importance of storytelling and shared experiences in the human journey.
Folk Music Breaks Through the Pandemic

(Above) The fan project that has dominated the Eras’ Tour has been trading friendship bracelets, which is inspired by the lyric, “So make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it” from the song, “You’re On Your Own Kid” on Swift’s newest album, Midnights. Fans, such as Kathryn Hudson, grade 11, and Isa Tapia Arocho, grade 11, pictured here, traded before and after the show (or in a McDonald’s
like the transaction I saw prior to the doors opening). Another thing that was featured on most fans’ hands was the number 13. This comes from Swift’s affinity for the number as she was born on December 13. In an interview with MTV back in 2009, Taylor Swift explained why she always draws the number on her hand before a show, noting, “I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first #1 song had a 13-second intro.”
