On January 4th, 2019, an unknown Instagram user decided to post a picture of a brown egg. Everyone was talking about it, wondering why someone would do this in the first place. But when they read the caption, all was explained. Of course, eggs are just an everyday breakfast food- but breakfast had nothing to do with this.

It all started when Kylie Jenner posted a picture of her five-day-old baby, Stormi Webster, on February 6th, 2018. The post was created to announce the baby’s name to her 123 million followers and fans. With everyone adoring the picture of the baby holding her mother’s thumb while asleep, it had the most likes on Instagram- over 18 million.

Almost a year later, the unknown Instagram user posted the picture of the egg; and all to prove a point. The caption read, “Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram. Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this.” More…

Ms. Walters Conspiracy Theories 15

Now, Ms. Walters is a favorite among the many Language Arts teachers here, as well as Journalism. However, there is something very peculiar about her that she isn’t quite telling us. The Journalism Investigative Team have come back again and found so many strange things that not even the world could explain. Now sit back, relax and eat a snack (that is healthy).

Is Ms. Walters Secretly a Horse?

Ms. Walters, if you are reading this, we don’t mean this in a mean way. Ms. Walters once mentioned that she was a veterinarian nurse before becoming a teacher. She also has several horse pictures inside her classroom. Everyone who has heard her read The Outsiders knows that she has a nice accent. We asked and she has clarified that she has a horse. While that may explain where that horsey smell comes, has anyone considered that she might actually BE a horse herself?

Now, this may sound strange, but Ms. Walters could very well be a centaur which is half horse half human. However, instead of being half and half, she might be able to control it so that she could shapeshift back and forth from a horse and a human. It all makes sense now, doesn´t it? More…

Mr. Woodruff Conspiracy Theories 25

Now, we all know Mr. Woodruff as a fun, enthusiastic band teacher who plays music for the sake of music. However, is there more to him than being just a simple band teacher? What the Journalism Investigative Team has uncovered is simply shocking.

Does Mr. Woodruff Control Gravity?:

Mr. Woodruff has made plenty of jokes in the past about nothing other than gravity. Whenever he drops something or something falls, he always tends to blame gravity. However, is this more than just some frivolous joke?

When in Mr. Woodruff´s band classes, many students noticed than random items just randomly fall, even when they are perfectly balanced on top of a table. Mr. Woodruff may be controlling gravity to specifically make these jokes. Is it all coming together now? We thought so. More…

Spongebob’s All Washed Up 1

The whimsically childish, funny, and entertaining sponge that many of us grew up with was once one of the best children’s shows on the air. It had both dumb and childish humor for young kids, more clever humor for whatever older kids were watching, and some adult type humor that goes completely over kid’s heads. It really was the perfect recipe for a wonderful, enjoyable show.

However, I can’t say the same for recent episodes. Spongebob has gone seriously downhill.

For one, all the characters have changed incredibly. It’s like the writers forgot who they are supposed to be. Squidward, for instance, is supposed to be a grump. You’re not supposed to like him at all. And he’s supposed to hate Spongebob and Patrick. But more recently, Squidward has actually been nice to them. Apparently, he even helps Patrick run a lemonade stand. What even happened there? More…

Is 16 an appropriate age to start driving? Reply

Savannah McVey

In California, 16-year-olds have higher crash rates than drivers of any other age. Is this epidemic really due to age though?

At the age of sixteen teens can receive their intermediate license, giving them some power behind the wheel. However, many argue that 16 is too young of an age to drive. On the other hand, some claim age doesn’t matter when it comes to driving, maturity does.

Arguing against driving at this age, many believe there is a major lack of experience. Some teens don’t take much time to practice before rushing into the test for a permit. They haven’t had enough time to get comfortable driving on the road. More…

Ms. Phan Conspiracy Theories 15

The Journalism Investigative Team

Does Ms. Phan Teach/Attend Hogwarts?:

Anyone who has ever been in Ms. Phan’s classroom knows that she is a full-blown Harry Potter fan. She collected all a fan could want. Papers, POPS, and even her own cat! But could she just store this all in her classroom because her house in the wizarding world is too full? Our theory is that Ms. Phan also teaches the history of magic to students while they are away from whatever school they go to. More…

The Journalism Investigative Team

We all know Mrs. Ortega as a friendly, yet challenging teacher who adores her students. However, is there more to her that we can uncover? Is there more to her life that she isn’t telling us? Let’s find out.

Is Mrs. Ortega Secretly A College Level Professor?

Many may know that Mrs. Ortega is one of the more challenging teachers here at Stacey and loves to push her students. But could she secretly be going to Cal. State Long Beach every weekend to teach college students? Evidence of this is that she is known to say that her work is, “preparing you for college.¨

She is even an AVID teacher, or (Advancement Via Individual Determination). If you are not aware, AVID is a class designed to help students graduate from college. She seems to know a lot about colleges. This must mean that she is secretly a college professor when nobody’s looking. More…

Gavin Mercado and Annabelle Lona

Everyone’s favorite mouse has turned 90 on Monday, November 5th. At Disneyland and other Disney parks around the world, it was quite a palooza!

At Walt Disney World, a whole new dance party was created for the mouse himself. Strolling through Main Street, a huge float soars through the streets and above guests. When the float stops, the celebration becomes less of a parade and more of an incredible dance party.

At Disneyland, wait times to meet Mickey Mouse in his house, soared up to hours. Some Disney fans celebrated at home in their living rooms with Mickey’s 90th Spectacular. ABC says this, ¨Mickey’s 90th Spectacular,” a dazzling two-hour primetime event celebrating 90 years of Mickey Mouse, aired Sunday, November 4 8|7c on ABC. From the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, the elegant affair will feature star-studded musical performances, moving tributes and never-before-seen short films. Superstars from music, film, and television will join the festivities to celebrate the birthday of the internationally beloved character on Mickey’s 90th Spectacular

If viewers missed the episode, they can still watch the extreme celebration on the ABC app.

Mickey was initially created as a replacement for Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, who was an earlier cartoon character for the Disney Studio and originally belonged to Charles Mintz. During the time Mickey was being put together, it was decided he would have 4 fingers on each hand. His ears were drawn to look circular no matter what direction he was facing.
