10 Signs You Are From North Canton, Ohio

1. Belden Village Mall was the "cool" place to hang out in middle school, even though all you did was walk around and look at things you couldn't buy.

2. The day the Hoover Company shut down was a very sad day. It is hard to see a once vibrant factory with holes in the windows.

3. Half the city lives at El Rincon.

If you haven't eaten there before, are you even from North Canton?

4. When you see Mr. Gallina in the hallway giving air high fives, your inner child emerges.

You couldn't be more excited.

5. If you wanted to be popular in middle school, you were on the volleyball team.

6. During football games, seniors ruled the student section.

If you were a freshman trying to get up front, well, it was nice knowing you.

7. The Roller Skating Rink on Whipple Avenue was the Friday night hang out location for all wannabe skaters and punks in middle school.

If you went here, you probably thought you were the toughest kid around.

8. Turkey Gravy Day is the best day of the year.

As soon as the lunch bell rings, you push and elbow shove anyone who tries to get in your way.

9. The Jaycee Fair is the place for middle and high school girls to dress extremely inappropriately in public.

If you went here in middle school, you probably tried to act like you were 20 for the night.

10. You make fun of the "Viking Strong" slogan.

However, no matter how much we make fun of it, it has real meaning. Our town has gone through some hardships, and we will always persevere and stay strong.

Student Life

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
