Every year, Americans celebrate Veteran’s Day and honor those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. These soldiers fought and served our nation to protect our freedoms. While not all of us can make such heroic sacrifices, many students at Trumbull High volunteer in services that benefit their communities. Big or small, we can all make a difference for the betterment of society.

Beautiful mixtures of melodies, layers of smooth synthesizers, diverse tempos, and thumping 808 bass tracks; welcome to the world of trap music.
Although it originated in the early 2000s in the south of the United States, trap music has recently become ubiquitous, exploding in popularity around 2012. It has really taken over the stage of dubstep in terms of prominence, and plans to stay for a while. The music stemmed from several underground artists, also gaining recognition through dance forms. It became even more widespread as popular artists such as Swedish House Mafia incorporated it into new hit singles. Moreover, Youtube has become a major outlet for it, with countless users uploading their remixes of popular songs with the addition of trap and grabbing millions of views every day. It is obvious that trap music is currently in full surge.

Ever been on a tight budget for Halloween? Well, it’s always best to stick with clothes from your own closet; only buy the necessary items. If you plan to be a princess, buy a cheap tiara. Stores like Michael’s are perfect for finding a wide range of items. But, most importantly: be creative and work with what you have. Dressing up for Halloween is all in the name of fun.

The 2013 Trumbull football team was no joke. Finishing with a hard earned 8-3 record, they were a force to be reckoned with in the competitive FCIAC. Overcoming teams such as the Fairfield Warde Mustangs, Stamford Black Knights, Norwalk Bears, Westhill Vikings, Greenwich Cardinals, Wilton Warriors, Danbury Madhatters, and the Bridgeport Central Hilltoppers, the 2013 football team left their mark.
Come 2014, the football team was gutted. What survived graduation on offense were linemen Greg Goldman, Jon Newland, and Cory Haslem. As for defense, the one man left was linebacker Jack Kelly. Clearly, big shoes, or cleats, were left to be filled. But the team was up for the challenge.
