Spicy. Chicken. Nuggets. Three of my favorite words

Spicy. Chicken. Nuggets. Three of my favorite words

Haley Ellison, Gazebo Staff Writer

December 10, 2019

As you may know, Wendy’s brought back their spicy chicken nuggets in August. I was so excited. My addiction to spicy chicken nuggets began when I was in sixth grade. My older sister Libby and I would drive over to Wendy’s and grab some nuggets. Soon, these nuggets were so rudely taken off the me...

‘Made in America’ Chinese food just not the same

‘Made in America’ Chinese food just not the same

Grace Ge, Gazebo Staff Writer

December 6, 2019

I have lived in the United States for about a year and a half and have already tried the Chinese food here.  When I first had it, to be honest, I was surprised by the taste. I have noticed people living here usually order egg rolls, sweet-and-sour chicken, fried rice, and beef with broccoli.  ...

Sushi? Try it. You might like it (I did)

Sushi? Try it. You might like it (I did)

Olivia Coleman, Gazebo Staff Writer

December 6, 2019

My favorite restaurant is UMI Sushi in Atlanta. The first time I went, I was in seventh grade.  I can still remember what I wore that night. School had just started, and the weather was still warm, so I had on a black tank top from Sorella, which was too big for me at the time, with white jeans, ...

Hungry? Check out these food gems in Macon

William McCormack, Gazebo Staff Writer

November 15, 2019

Macon is a good place for people to branch out and find the hidden gems for restaurants in Macon. Over time, I have found some of the best, low-key places to eat. Eating downtown is a very popular option in Macon. I try to pick out the places that are not typical which can sometimes mean finding a...

Seeing ‘Hamilton’ was everything I expected … and more

Edie Sharpton, Gazebo Staff Writer

November 12, 2019

I had been looking forward to this night for more than a year.  It was late September in New York City, and I was on a trip with my family. I was going to see "Hamilton: An American Musical" on Broadway. For Christmas 2018, my parents surprised me and my 11-year-old brother, Cam, with tickets to "Hamilton'' in New York. Even though it was almost a year away...

From Skoogles to Speedos, swim has changed my life

From Skoogles to Speedos, swim has changed my life

Athena Leskovics, Gazebo Staff Writer

November 12, 2019

I put on my first pair of skoogles (a type of goggles) and hopped right into the world of swimming.  Swim has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I played soccer and basketball when I was younger and I even played piano. I tried gymnastics out but my mom said after two lessons she kn...

My love for baseball

Waldon Davis, Gazebo Staff Writer

November 12, 2019

Baseball is a sport that requires hard work, skill, and determination.  It is by far my favorite sport for those reasons.  I love to work hard, I have the perfect skills -- speed and good hand-eye coordination -- a baseball player needs.  I am determined to do my best in the process. I have been...

Transition to soccer has been life-changing

Knox Cleveland, Staff Writer

November 12, 2019

Up until my freshman year, two years ago, I had played baseball my entire life.  Then everything changed. I decided I was through with baseball and would play soccer the following year.  Leaving a sport I had played since I was about 3 was difficult. Even though I was sick of baseball and was leav...

I have been hunting for as long as I remember. My grandfather, T Wayne Roberts, introduced me to hunting when he purchased me a pellet gun and let me hunt squirrels behind his house in Gray.  I would spend hours chasing squirrels through the woods until one day I finally got one. The squirrel was on...

Falling in love with fall

Falling in love with fall

Cate Eddlemon, Gazebo Staff Writer

November 6, 2019

When the leaves turn orange and yellow, and the weather begins to cool off, you know fall is approaching. Fall is my favorite season for many reasons. Fall means it's football season. Football is one of my favorite sports to watch. This is probably because it is one of the only sports that I actually ...

What’s that smell? Country Music

What’s that smell? Country Music

Camilla Veale, Gazebo Staff Writer

November 5, 2019

The worst type of music is easily country, and I stand by this.  Living in the South makes my hatred for country music even more difficult. The majority of the population in the South loves country music. I hear it almost everywhere I go. When I tell people I hate country they always say, “How do you...
