Cougar Catnip: Give us new waters fountains please

Cougar Catnip: Singing in the rain

Christian Montecino October 14, 2022

Since we don’t get much rain here in Ventura, it’s always refreshing to get even a little drizzle of water in our county. Just this past week, we had a big thunderstorm, our first in a while. To be...

Cougar Catnip: Having to use our IDs to get lunch is a nightmare

Kinda Mehael September 21, 2022

Since the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year, students have had to have their ID cards to get lunch. I think that’s very unnecessary and frankly, stupid. Most students don’t even carry their IDs,...

Cougar Catnip: Block schedule is NOT ideal!

Cougar Catnip: Where did the time go?

Samantha Castañeda May 18, 2022

School went by so quickly! I don’t have to wake up at six in the morning to get ready for school. Summer 2020 and 2021 weren’t that great because some places were closed and I couldn’t really do...

There are too many kids in my way in the school restrooms. My friends are having the same problem. Today my friend encountered some girl crying in one stall while three other people were bleaching their...

Cougar Catnip: These hands detest hand dryers

Cougar Catnip: These hands detest hand dryers

Livia Vertucci April 29, 2022

The hand dryers in the VHS bathrooms are repulsive. They work 10 percent of the time so students are left with soaking hands and they leave the bathrooms. Along with that the dryers are never cleaned,...

Avea Baker March 24, 2022

Recently there’s been widespread sadness over gas prices. People have started wanting to revert back to the wild west and ride horses, and I don’t blame them. The prices are astronomical. It’s climbing...
