School Apprehends, Expels Students with Pot Brownies

Nate Rosen

Wednesday afternoon, Principal John Dodig sent an email to all parents saying that in two separate incidents in the last month, three students brought marijuana-laced brownies into school. The three were expelled for a year each.

In the email, Dodig says some may come back to school earlier “with the expulsion hanging over their heads ready to be reinstated if they make another big mistake.”

He explained that the school is not responsible for family decisions regarding drugs and alcohol. However, it is the school’s duty as educators to teach students about the facts and to punish them when they don’t follow school, and legal, rules.

“They get all of that information from their health classes. Still, the temptation is there for many reasons and the consequences of getting caught are dire.”

Dodig described this incident as a big mistake, especially because “drugs in school cannot be tolerated.” His email went on to encourage parents to teach their children about making safe and healthy choices. “Working together, as we have in the past, we will continue to be successful in this regard,” he said.

The note also included a warning about Thursday’s homecoming game. Dodig asked parents to talk to their kids, to ensure the safety and health of all students, especially at the football game. “I gave up preaching morality years ago… We must always be ready to acknowledge that some will continue to make mistakes in judgment,” he said.

Nate Rosen, Graphics Coordinator

When flipping through the pages of a freshly printed Inklings on a Friday morning at Staples, text, novelty-fonted headlines and especially graphics and pictures jump out to the Staples students and faculty. And a big applause is long overdue to senior Nate Rosen ’14, who is Graphics Editor in Chief this year and is the man behind a number of graphics in both the paper and web versions of Inklings.

 “It’s a creative outlet for me,” said Rosen ’14 who can be called an artist for his graphics and photos but claims he cannot draw for his life.

Doing graphics for Inklings since freshman year he has created numerous different visuals. One of his favorites is the banner for an article about The Great Gatsby. With gold and metal like textures the banner closely resembles the logo for the 2013 movie.

“That graphic I actually did on my own time, it was more for me,” said Rosen ’14.

Rosen claims that graphics is really a hobby for him; he could be on the Adobe software creating new graphics all day long. However it is easier to have an assignment for a graphic instead of creating the idea on his own.

But no matter how he gets the creative spark or how he creates his artwork, Rosen’s graphics will be printed and posted proudly in Inklings throughout the year.
