Letters to the editor Dear Editor, I am writing in response to your article “Lost In Time.” I also like fashion and music from past generations, but I feel as though a lot of people over romanticize the era they like; they only see the fashion, but don’t really think about the flaws. While I’d agree that the 1800s were […]

Dear Editor, I am writing in response to the article, “Stuck Inside the Bubble”. Mason as a city isn’t the utopian town seen by Kastens, where everyone is blissfully ignorant of the outside world. Now, there are a good handful of people who are well beyond the clouds and would be wholly unprepared for any solo journey to an inner […]

Dear Editor, I think for Mason City Schools the 2014-2015 year will be the year of big change and the year of new opportunities for both the students and the teachers with the change from trimesters to semesters. I believe that moving from trimesters to semesters is one of the best things the school could do for everyone, teachers included. […]

Dear Editor, I can really agree with the sibling rivalries because just like others in your article, I have an older sibling that I am expected to surpass. My sister was great not only academically but also she was great in lacrosse. After my first tri here at Mason, I got three A’s and two B’s, not too shabby if […]

Dear Editor, I really enjoyed your article on long term relationships. I, myself, have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for almost 16 months. …I also agree with what Ana Perez said about having someone you can turn to for anything. I know I can count on him and that he’s always there for me. It is hard sometimes […]

Dear Editor, Making the student choose a fruit of vegatable with their lunch is a good idea, but when the student can get pizza and fries, does a fruit and vegetable make it healthier? Most of the students throw away the fruit or vegetable anyway and that is just a waste of money and food. -Grace Kastens, freshman Dear Editor, […]

Inappropriate movies have negative influence on students Dear Editor, I think Project X is [a movie] for high school students with certain insecurities that just want to escape and “fit it” with the generic teenage label. To me, it displays their immaturity and adolescence. The fact that Project X parties are a main topic of conversation amongst seniors concerns me […]

Negative ads have a place in politics Dear Editor, I have a different view on the negative campaign ads then in the article, “Negativity a Key Player in GOP Campaigns” when the mudslinging of republican Candidates is addressed. When running for office, one’s public image is everything. In a campaign, the nominee’s only and ultimate goal is to appear fitter […]

We should pay more attention to teenage drug use Dear Editor, The DARE program was started many years ago to teach young kids about the negative effects that drugs have on a person. When we did the program in sixth-grade, we all enthusiastically vowed we would never do drugs, but over that short period of three years until we got […]

Dear Editor, I read the article “Originality snobbery is for five year olds.” I agree with this article. It’s always good to think for yourself and not let others change you, but there is nothing wrong with going along with the social “norm.” We can all…like similar things without stealing the idea from [an]other. When we were little, we called […]

Dear Editor, I read the “Struggling to Fit in” article, and I feel good about this story because sometimes, I feel like I dont fit in either. I am an ESL student, and I am from Vietnam, and I dont speak very well. It is difficult because some people can’t understand me, and I can’t say the things I want […]

Dear Editor, There once was a joke I heard, and it went something like this, “I’m tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That’s deep enough. What do you want—an adorable pancreas?” This made me chuckle, but [it] also made me realize how shallow we all are as Americans. In the last Chronicle, “Beauty in The Eyes […]

Dear Editor, Homecoming is a gathering of students at Mason High School. Over the past couple of years the administration has noticed there is a lot of physical activity happening at the school dances. I think this is something we could change if we really wanted to. The school, I feel like, doesn’t put enough into telling the students grinding […]
