Time for some sparkle: Back to school shopping
I have always been a shopper. The excitement of getting new things and the energy just gets me. Also, I really like getting new clothes. I don’t know why I’m this way. I do know, however, that I have been excited about shopping for a long time, as I specifically remember choosing...

Holly McCamant: Jumping off bridges and drinking too much, just another day at the lake
Every summer, I look forward to this huge party with a lot of kids my age. We come from all over the state to drink way more than usual. We get so crazy that we start doing stuff like jump off Long Bridge and run through sprinklers. But believe it or not, I’m not talking about...

Driver’s license test: Sometimes it’s OK to just pass
I am the type of person who loves to ace tests. If you go to school with me, you most likely know this. However, most of you kind readers probably don’t so let me explain. I love going into a test, fully prepared, and just owning it. It’s what I do. I don’t freak out if I...

Holly McCamant: Lake Tahoe family reunion
As I mentioned last week, I was at my family reunion at Lake Tahoe. Since the article was on road trips, I didn’t elaborate much on how the reunion went. The reunion was just beginning, and I wrote that column as (almost) always, in a coffee shop. Now, in a coffee shop in Butte,...

Holly McCamant: After a long road trip, you can handle anything
Road trips are the strange sibling of travel. Some consider them the ultimate vacation. However, others see them as the less desirable oddball. I’ve actually been on a fair amount of road trips. It started when I was young. Every two years we have a family reunion, and every...

Holly McCamant: Camp counselor has best three weeks at camp ever
I spent the last three weeks at Camp Cherith this summer. Camp Cherith is this amazing Christian camp that teaches girls and boys how to give up all they have and devote their life to Christ. I was looking forward to this summer for years because I wanted to become a CILT. CILT...

Holly McCamant: Nothing compares to the lakes country
A couple of weeks ago, I heard somebody say that Detroit Lakes was a city of snobs. Apparently somewhere it’s on a list of richest cities in Minnesota. This person didn’t have the best judgment and made the assumption the Detroit Lakes’ people weren’t always the nicest...

Holly McCamant: Working to be a camp counselor
Ever since my parents decided that I should go to camp with my cousin the summer after fourth grade, I’ve gone to Camp Cherith. I started out new there but this year will be my seventh summer. If you don’t know, Camp Cherith is a Christian camp located in the not-so-scary Vergas...

Holly McCamant: Inside the life of an only child
In just about every culture, siblings are a way of life. It’s especially evident in the American culture, where the average American household has around two and a half children. Just about everyone I know is fortunate to have a brother or sister. It’s very evident both...

Holly McCamant: Regardless of journey, it’s ‘where I’m supposed to be in the end’
High schoolers have all the fun, they said. Teenagers go out and party and have the time their lives. Last Friday night, I realized that wasn’t quite true. Last night, my junior high friends had a lot of fun at a birthday party while I did a practice Math ACT test. The corrected...

Country v. City: It all depends on you
Around here, the people are a certain type. We are known as country people. When summer comes around, we flock to the lake. Many hikes will be taken. Fishing happens even more than it does in the winter. When the fall comes, we still spend a fair amount of times outdoors. Plenty...

Shaving seconds off: Tracksters run a season to remember
This track season’s training began during last track season. I had learned a lot, mainly that getting sick at a critical time is not a good idea and running when sick is an even worse idea. Then came cross country. I had a wonderful team and great new coach. However, I was way...

Holly McCamant: Why summer ‘vacation’ is great
“I can’t wait until summer!” is basically the mantra for every high schooler in spring. All school year, kids my age dream of sunny days with swimsuits, frozen yogurt, and adventures better than taking a test without studying. The whole teenage year revolves around summer...

Holly McCamant: Advice to incoming seventh graders

Holly McCamant: Confidence is true beauty
In today’s society, many of us have heard of the lack of confidence in young girls. I’ve seen it myself. It’s a thing that many girls have. For the most part, I’ve been confident about how I look. I know I’m one of the few, but I believe that fast 800 times and writing...
