It’s that time of the year again when the Girl Scouts are out and about with lots of cookies to sell.

Being a Girl Scout can seem like an easy thing. All Girl Scouts have to do is sell cookies, but it is not actually that easy. People can be mean, even to fourth grade Girl Scouts just trying to sell some cookies.

Mia, a fourth grader in local Troop 3318 had a very discouraging experience while selling cookies with her mom. Mia walked up to a house and knocked on the door. A man opened the door, took one look at her, and slammed the door in her face. After he rudely slammed the door he yelled, “I don’t want your Girl Scout cookies,” aggressively.

Other than that, most Girl Scouts in Troop 3318 have had smooth and successful time selling their cookies. One Girl Scout Emily Fracassa has already sold $240 worth of cookies in only one week. Another Girl Scout Hannah has sold $400 worth of cookies. One box is five dollars.

All in all, there is no shortage of Girl Scout cookies being sold, and if you have a desire to buy a box or two then you should jump on the opportunity while it lasts.


In Depth: Eagles and Patriots 1

Super Bowl.jpeg

Ashley Wolf

The Super Bowl is a big event for football lovers all over the US. This year the top teams are the Philadelphia Eagles and The New England Patriots. Let’s get to know these two teams a little better.

Home Stadiums

Both of these teams have great home stadiums. The Eagles home stadium is Lincoln Financial Field, which is also home to the Temple Owls football team of Temple University.  It is a large stadium with a seating capacity of 69,176.

The Patriots home stadium is Gillette Stadium, which is also the home of MLS’s New England Revolution soccer team. In 2012, it also became the home stadium for the football program of  University of Massachusetts (UMass), while the universities stadium, Warren McGuirk Alumni Stadium, was undergoing renovations. Slightly smaller than Lincoln Financial Field, this stadium has a seating capacity of 65,878. More…

5, 4, 3, 2, 1, SCREAMMM! Oh, I’m supposed to write, sorry. Anyways, on January 8th, California Screamin had it´s very last screamers scream for one final time. Wow, that was a tongue twister. It was a sad day for many.

The reason why this attraction closed is because of the previously mentioned Incredicoaster that will be opening in Summer 2018. Very soon.

Recently, Disney released a wooden model of the inside of the tunnels (shown above), and I´ve gotta say, this is going to be so much better than California Screamin. Nobody really ever liked the boardwalk theme anyway. More…

Coyotes are Stronger Than Ever in Huntington Beach, and This Strength is Becoming More and More Evident. 5

Those who live in the Huntington Beach know that we live in an amazing area. Beautiful weather, a nice atmosphere, and only a five-minute drive to the beach. The people of Huntington Beach are truly lucky to live where they live.

However, no place in the world is entirely perfect. There are problems in Huntington Beach as there are anywhere else in the universe. One of these problems is getting out of hand. As coyotes grow in population and grow in comfortability, this problem makes itself more well known.

As previously mentioned, the coyotes in Huntington Beach are well known at this point and are beginning to seem regular. Let it be known that simply because you become used to a problem, doesn’t mean it no longer is one. More…

What Happened To The $5 Footlong? 1

Ah yes, we all remember when that $5 footlong song got stuck in our heads. Eventually, though, it seemed to just disappear. What happened to the $5 footlong?

Before we get too far into this, I just want to make sure everyone knows what a $5 footlong was. It was a sandwich deal that Subway made. A sandwich that was well, a foot long. Obviously the footlong is still at subway, but it’s now sold for $6.99.

Now let’s get into the juicy stuff. Many Subway franchise owners are suing Subway corporate office because they claim, “Profits are dropping.” These franchise owners want the $5 dollar footlong back.

They think this great deal will attract a lot more customers. But the $5 footlong ended February 2016. So why are they suing now? More…

Welcome to our second official article in “DisNews,” a Stacey exclusive series where we talk about the news of the past and present of Disneyland. Today we will be focusing on California Adventure!

On February 8, 2001, Disney’s California Adventure opened to the public. This new park was supposed to bring the highlights of California to you all in one day! There were lands called Condor Flats, Grizzly Peak, Hollywood Land . . . and of course the infamous Paradise Pier. Now Paradise Pier has many rides, such as Toy Story Midway Mania, California Screamin, Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Goofy’s Sky School, and many, many others. However, before these attractions even came to the parks, Disney’s California Adventure was a flop! More…

The Seal Beach Parade took place at the Seal Beach pier at December 1st. The parking lot was loaded with cars, so parking was hard to find. In the parade, there were up to one hundred and six lineups waiting to march including Cub Scouts, bands, and Santa Claus! The parade’s theme was “The Magic of Christmas.”

The parade was produced by the Seal Beach Lions Foundation with support from the City of Seal Beach. More than three thousand, five hundred people in one hundred six entries entertained approximately fifteen thousand people throughout the three block route from the pier to the Pacific Coast Highway.

The parade was in “continuous motion,” so the entries could not slow down or stop at any point during the parade. The parade started at 7 pm, and it ended at 8:30 pm. Chairs were set up for people to watch the parade.  More…

What is an Indian Summer? 5

It´s so Hot! We can all say that the week of October 23-27 was a very hot week, but, we may have some good news.

According to, an Indian summer is ¨a period of mild, dry weather, usually accompanied by a hazy atmosphere, occurring usually in late October or early November and following a period of colder weather.¨  

I think our current weather situations fits that description perfectly. Our hot weather has started in late October,  the weather was hot and dry, and we have had a hazy atmosphere. More…

Anaheim Hills Burned to the Ground 2


Avalyn Walton and Maddie Fracassa

A wind-fed wildfire roared and blazed over Anaheim Hills early morning on Oct. 9th, forcing thousands to evacuate for their own safety. At least 7,500 acres of land have been burned down as well as several homes.

Not all residents evacuated. However, some fought to stay. These citizens watched over their houses during the fire, despite the dismay of the police who had heavily advised them to evacuate.

An example of this would be Marty Temple, a resident of Anaheim Hills, who was one of the citizens who chose to stay. While he was there, a trash can caught on fire. He, at first, tried to put it out himself but realized the small garden hose was too small. He then had to run down the street and get the firemen to put it out. If he hadn’t been there, the fire would have most likely burned the house. More…

Why is it SO HOT? 10

hot weather

It’s getting closer and closer to Halloween, and wait- isn’t it fall? When everyone brings out their boots and cozy jackets while curling up by the fire sipping a nice hot cup of Starbucks hot chocolate or hot apple cider? Well, you may want to reconsider.  Keep those sweaters tucked away because you probably won’t need them

Now, nothing says “fall” better than the sweet scent of fresh apples, cinnamon, and pumpkins. Though it’s fall, the temps missed the memo, and in some ways, that’s causing some problems for our apples.

The owner of Drazen Orchards in Cheshire states, “Things are ripening faster than you’d like them to. We’re not getting cold nights. It has slowed down business a bit, we weren’t as busy yesterday when it was almost 90.” More…
