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.

Just when I thought I’d died and gone to shopping heaven, I got some even better news: Swedish clothing moguls H&M are expanding, bringing the store to Tyrone and WestShore malls -- in addition to the one recently opened at International Plaza.
Now all of the St. Petersburg fashionistas can venture to Tyrone Mall to grab a trendy last-minute outfit without having to make the trek to Tampa. Though why they are opening up a store in WestShore Mall, just a couple blocks away from International Plaza, is beyond me. But if it means more H&M in our lives, I'll embrace it.
Both stores are expected to open sometime in the fall. Tyrone and WestShore have already begun clearing space for their H&Ms, one of Forever 21's top competitors. Tyrone is clearing a six-store front space conveniently across from Forever 21 and next to Cotton On. Westshore is using the space between the former Pants Towne and JCPenney.
H&M's Super Bowl commercial, which stars steamy soccer played David Beckham advertising his line of menswear for the store, may not contain any clothing relevant to me, a high school girl, but it definitely made me want to hit the store for new clothes. (If you missed the commercial, we've provided a delightful photo of Beckham for you, top left. You're welcome.)
And though I have to wait until fall for the store to be in my own backyard, this is great news fellow clothing lovers. I waited years to get just one H&M in town, and now within a year all of us Tampa Bay fashionistas will have three. Oh, how the fashion gods have blessed me (and cursed my bank account).
