Well, for one thing, it's the coolest high school newspaper in all the land. Watch our video and find out more.
Just about everyone knows someone who has been bullied, in ways big and small. Understandably, though, many victims are reluctant to speak about their experiences. We found some who aren't.
Here are some of the fair foods on this year’s menu, all available at the Carousel stand near the Charles M. Davis Special Events Center:
Mac and cheese burger
This burger features a standard bun, burger patty, bacon and a scoop of macaroni and cheese.
The Polish boy
A kielbasa sausage that is grilled, and then placed on a toasted garlic roll topped with barbecued pork, slaw, fries and barbecue sauce.
Bacon peanut butter burger
Elvis would have loved this — get it with a banana on top for the full King experience.
Deep-fried mashed potatoes
A favorite from the Texas State Fair: Big balls of mashed potatoes are injected with gravy and then battered and fried.
Deep-fried bubble gum
Consists of bubble-gum-flavored marshmallows dipped in a batter and deep fried “as is,” then drizzled with a pink and blue icing and a few Chicklets sprinkled on top.
