Hannah Jewell Goodbye Letter

Hannah Jewell, Staff Writer | December 7, 2017

This past semester was something of a whirlwind. The time just flew by and now it is almost graduation. Through all the craziness, one of my favorite experiences here at UW-W was being part of the Royal Purple. At first, I was nervous about participating. I really did not know what to expect.

Lauren Fedorovich, Staff Writer | December 7, 2017

I switched to Journalism and never once thought that I could actually enjoy my school work.         I waited until my senior year to take my practicum courses because of my usua...

 The tax plan that passed through the U.S. Senate last Saturday will not save American citizens an extra $4,000, as promised. Instead it will cost many of us in the long-run through increasing taxes on middle-class Americans and adding $1.4 trillion to the national debt. Meanwhile massive corporations will receive a huge tax cut, leaving them with more money. According to the age-old theory...

Welcome to the new, unequal, cut-throat age of internet service deregulation. Last week Tuesday, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai announced the agency was moving forward with plans to roll back federal net neutrality regulations that prevent Internet Service Providers from limiting what websites you can visit, or how fast you get there. Without net neutrality, Internet...
