Think about walking into a store, there is Christmas music playing and shelves full of Santa Clauses and miniature Christmas trees. Jingle Bells plays overhead. Red and green lights blink out at you from various places. There is only one weird thing about this - its October. In the words of Senior Tae...

The day of Tam’s back to school rally; when my friends and I were walking near Mill Valley Middle School. All of us are Latinos. Jazmin, Jorge, Diego, and Victor are all Mexican; Lily and I are both a mix of Salvadoran and Guatemalan and Samuel is Guatemalan. It was a hot day and we were just happy...

I abstain from using the A word. This particular A word is not short for a--. It's not innocent censorship, not like H-E-double hockey sticks. My A word is an abbreviation for awkward, an over used and damaging speech trend in my Tam High life. Walking through campus this very afternoon, I couldn't help...

As many of my friends and classmates know, I am a citizen of Canada, that country above the almighty U.S, and contrary to Americans' popular belief, Canada is not uninhabitable tundra full of toothless hockey players.

Keeping on task with homework, college apps, crafting fine pottery, brewing meth or whatever kids do these days is difficult, due to the fact that the procrastination machines we call computers and smart phones are so integral to our everyday lives. But today I am not here to discuss how technology is...

Filed under Opinion

Dear Tam News, Two weeks ago, while in New York on business, someone sent me a link to the article “Getting personal: Craigslist offers more than just furniture” in the Tam News.  I have to say I was stunned and bitterly disappointed that such a recklessly cavalier and nonchalant perspective...

Welcome to Mill Valley, a magical land of wonderment where singing children frolic through forests of cypress and wealth seems to flow like the river Nile. It is a place where doors are left unlocked and grand houses are unattended by adults for weeks on end. Some may call it paradise, cynics may refer...

As the nation marked the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, I thanked the universe that the proposed “Burn a Koran Day” had never come to fruition.
