There is no denying that in the past decade, various attempts have been made to make our town more eco-friendly. However, our grocery stores still use the extremely harmful plastic bags that many environmental-friendly citizens would cringe at the site of. The cafeterias in the public schools serve food on those notorious Styrofoam or cardboard trays. The majority of our students drink from non-reusable plastic water bottles that they dispose of in the normal trash cans once they are finished. With all this in mind, my question is this: Are we as green as we say, or at least as green as we think we are?
When students reflect on their favorite spots in DHS, the cafeteria, courtyard, or chill zone usually come to mind. Not many know about one of the nicest spaces in the school: Mr. Paulsen’s office. .
While most of the DHS parking lot seems to be filled with Jeep Wranglers this year, one giant car stands out among the rest. It’s a 4X4 Dodge Ram pick-up truck. Who drives this macho car? None other than senior Katie Maccarone.

Tired of the same old food at the same old restaurants? Cafe D'Azure brings a fusion of French and Lebanese inspired cuisine to Darien. Click above to read more about the variety of foods from kebabs to soups, tapas, sandwiches, and crepes.
Halloween is the time of the year where people put their biggest fears to the test. A classic favorite of Halloween is the spider webbed lined, nail-biting haunted house. Neirad went around polling students to see what would get them spooked in a dark haunted house.
At the helm of the Darien football program is a unique sort of leader. This year a bevy of leadership comes from the trenches. Senior offensive tackle Brett O’Donnell came off a great junior season amongst the fearless teammates who brought home an FCIAC title last year.
