Hey there! My name's Peter, I'm a sophomore, and I'm the USJ's managing editor and assistant news editor. I believe that the first amendment is incredibly important, and as journalists we have the right and the duty to uphold it. I am very passionate for news reporting, from small, local issues, to major politics or systemic change topics. This is why I love political/breaking news reporting, and one day I hope to be an investigative journalist. I also enjoy artistic photography in my free time. I play trumpet and mellophone and I am part of Creek's Marching Band. I'm enthusiastic to inform this school on the happenings of our community, from Capitol Hill to the quad. Also, check out my column, Peanuts and Cracker Jack, where I talk about in-depth baseball!

To underclassmen, the variety of courses offered at CCHS can be overwhelming. And its a well-known and statistically-proven fact that Creek is an outstanding school. We have a heavy academic culture that promotes taking seven classes, and prioritizing weighted courses. But no one should feel pressured by that culture to take on more than they can handle.

A WWII-used TBF Avenger dive bomber on display at the Intrepid Museum in New York City. Planes like these are what drew me into the historical aviation world. But every year, more and more crash in flying incidents. With each plane destroyed, we lose a real connection to the veterans and the history of WWII.

Colorado Rockies rookie shortstop Ezequiel Tovar hits a single against the Oakland Athletics on July 30, 2023. Tovar showed consistency in his batting in the 2023 season, leading a new batch of Rockies rookies like Nolan Jones and Brenton Doyle, rookies that I hope will be the future of the team, bringing Colorado back to a respectable position in the league.
