Lee: ‘Black Dahlia’ still an unsolved mystery

The Black Dahlia murder is the most famous, unsolved murder in California history. The real story couldn’t have been scripted better — a young girl moves out to Hollywood to become a star (she was beautiful), doesn’t make it (but making some porn is close), and ends up naked and gutted like a deer in the middle of suburbia (nice rack!).

Tension, competition mount between local coffee shops

The world of business is known for the rivalries between great owners like Rockefeller and Carnegie, and great products like Apple versus Microsoft. But nothing has prepared River Falls for the battle of the coffee shops. Hot Spot Coffee House and Billiards, Kinni Coffee and Lounge and Lighthouse Coffee,  now occupy three downtown properties in […]

Campus-wide events honor Black History Month

February is known as the month of love, the month when a rodent tells you how the weather is going to be and the month that is strangely short a few days. But it is also the month of cultural pride for many around the nation. February is Black History Month.   Black History Month […]

Inaccuracy of facts injures reputation

I am writing in regards to my name and “situation” which was printed in the “River Falls Police/Public Safety” section of your first printed issue.  As a fellow journalism student and former critic of film and music for your paper, I am very humiliated and disappointed with your reporting. The first rule that we are […]

Fall Out Boy’s new album fails to impress

Back when I was in high school, I remember being one of the first girls to jump on the emo, pop punk bandwagon. I bought a pair of Chucks, dyed my hair hot pink, wore too many plastic bracelets, and bought Fall Out Boy’s first album, Evening Out With Your Girlfriend.  From then on, I […]

Twin Cities band, Ice Land, begins to break out

There is a little part in all of us that dreams of becoming a rock star. Every time your roommate plugs a small red guitar into a PlayStation for a round of Guitar Hero or a drunken girl ill advisedly takes the mic at karaoke, they can pretend for a few minutes to rock out […]

‘Jesus Camp’ leaves viewers with opposing opinions

It would be easy to say that this film is just a sad portrayal of brainwashed little redneck children. But to look at it that way would be to miss a more important issue. This movie was completely intense, but very important to understanding a new population of Americans. Throughout the movie, the kids are […]

‘Departed’ keeps audience captivated

Jackass 2 is positively crude

What does it say about our society when the No. 1 movie in America, which has grossed over $25 million already, is about dick, fart and pain jokes?  I guess that just makes me a jackass too, because I could not have gotten enough of it.  It is one of the only movies you can […]
