America’s peanut crunching, sunflower spitting, base stealing pastime recently received a facelift when MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred noticed that baseball no longer attracts a widespread audience like it used to. It seemed as though other sports were heading in a new direction and baseball lagged in the past and after hasty consideration, the MLB determined that “streamlining” the game would open the doors of the future to a broader audience — unfortunately, this decision was about as effective as hitting into a double play. The commissioner’s office failed to consider the rippling repercussions of modifying old rules and thus incited a predominantly negative reactions from tendered fans and players alike. The desired effects of eliminating the four-pitch intentional walk, implementing instant replay, and punishing aggressive sliding tactics, has obviously caused baseball more harm than good.

To those who value art, activism, or individuality, symbolism plays a large role. While we, as young people, strive to free ourselves from societal norms, we find comfort in representation through these symbols. Symbolism is involved in many aspects of our daily lives, from the icons on our computer screens to pride flags.
When I was a child, I was infatuated with teenage life. Thinking back, it’s understandable why I envisioned my ideal high school wardrobe and planned each prom—I grew up with the Disney Channel Original Movie lens on adolescence. Becoming a teenager represented self-expression, discovery, and yes, a slew of superficial details that decorated the entire dream.
From the homemade press to the slopes, ON3P skis will not disappoint.

For most people, Sandy is just the town they drive through on their way to Mt Hood, but to me, it’s the place I call home. Sandy holds a population of 11,000 and is a light 45 minute drive to Portland. Sandy is famous for our Joe’s Donuts, a local donut shop that gets plenty of business from skiers on their way to the slopes and still is home to one of the last standing “Blockbuster Movies” in the world.
