Following the graduation of seniors Ian Adler and Brooks Argento last year, some students were left wondering what would happen to the well-loved comedy segment, Hall Talk with Brooks and Ian.
The 2016-2017 school year, however, has brought a new pair of students who have taken on the challenge of filling the void.
Juniors Liam MacQuillan and Jared Pofi have adopted their own form of Hall Talk, a job they obtained somewhat by fate after a teacher recognized their comedic talent.
“I had them in class last year and I just thought they were pretty popular guys and good students.” Mrs. Valerie Stone said. “I just thought they’d be able to pull it off and I think they’re doing a fabulous job.”
Macquillan and Pofi took her recommendation and are continuing to run with it.

Many people have been asking, what’s in and what’s out this year. It seems that a lot of fashion from the 80’s is coming back, which means people will be seeing denim skirts, graphic tees and lots of plaid.
Turtlenecks are back and loose-fitting sweaters are seen throughout the school. Shoes such as Vans, duck boots, and Converse are coming to surface as well.
“Converse are my absolute favorite shoe, I love the classic black color,” Junior Kristen Nowicki said. “I think the white ones are pretty popular too.”
Just about anything denim is back and booming. Denim skirts paired with cropped sweaters is a popular look for girls. Any sort of denim shirt or jacket can also be seen on boys. High-waisted pants or shorts are becoming more common for girls, as the styles have changed drastically compared to previous years.
Hoodies, graphic tees, and plaid shirts are common for boys. “The flannels from Hollister are cool, I have a few of them.” Senior Jake Holt said. Bucket hats, beanies, and snapbacks are prevalent headwear options. “They’re great for bad hair days.” Senior Jake Holt said. Nike sportswear is also popular for both genders, especially when it comes to shoewear.
Styles do vary, as do trends. This year, we are seeing a more retro take on style. 80’s fashion trends supremely returned in today’s youth. It’s time to grab our sneakers and sweaters, the 80’s are back!
