Your friends just might be tired of hearing the details of the application process?
College. Ever daunting. Ever present. Ever intimidating. As we shell out essay after essay, we come ever closer to the thing that we strive for most: the acceptance letter. Some of us have already begun to receive these life-changing pieces of paper from the state schools, but others are still waiting as the early decision deadline approaches. There is a little bit of fun within the application process, though. College visits make it all worthwhile. Walking around the campus, feeling the atmosphere, seeing the college students so at home at the school...it inspires extra effort in the paperwork. Here’s something else that lessens the stress: stop bringing it up with your friends. Spending every lunch period discussing how much you’ve …

This rugged two-way performer at MICDS is the tonic the Tigers really need right now.
Gary Pinkel, Mizzou football coach, are you listening? Next fall, without fail, you need to play new freshman Michael Scherer and probably both ways. I'd be happy to repeat that. Mizzou hasn’t had two-way starters since the 1960s when Andy Russell of Ladue played fullback and linebacker and Texan Johnny Roland started sometimes at runningback and safety. It can be done. Football is no more physical or demanding today than back in the Dan Devine era, in which, by the way the Tigers were never losing to Kansas State. Saturday’s woeful performance in the other Manhattan only proved the Tigers need to upgrade their talent. Tiny 185 pound backs ran Mizzou’s defense silly. Scherer, who will arrive at Mizzou filled out at least 6-foot-3, 238 …

How out-of-school activities dominate the lives of high school students
Ladue High School junior Carrie Seleman has joined Patch as a new contributor with an insider's look to peer issues with teens in our community. I know that I am not the only one out there who has had very limited free time on weekends. I also know that this hectic nature is no stranger to society. As a high school student, I spend my weekend attempting to balance family time with sporting events while making sure not to forget to feed my social life, not to mention fitting in studying somewhere. The treacherous roads to Sunday morning only added to this lack of time. Sometimes I wonder why I put myself through this. I constantly overhear my friends and peers complaining about their extracurricular activities. On rainy days, athletes…
