The staff is super attentive and food comes out hot which is a pretty big pet peeve when it doesn't. Good food for the price and good local hangout. Poway Sushi Lounge: Awesome happy hour sushi specials! They have a huge selection of items for half price during happy hour. You can practically get an entire dinner for under $8. Be sure to get there early as the line usually goes out the door during happy hour and they cut off the special right on the dot.

EDITORIAL Issues at Meadowbrook: Phones Bennett Harvey Let me tell you something that is a big problem for everyone at Meadowbrook Middle School; phones. It is a problem for all teachers, students, and parents. Let me explain why. It distracts other students from doing their work; it distracts the user of the phone and encourages him/her to always do it and never to do his/her classwork. It also distracts the teacher from teaching the lesson. No matter which way you put it, or who you are in the situation, it’s always a lose-lose-lose situation. Nobody wins. Here are some reasons why students shouldn’t use their phones. The first reason: Listening to music. Lots of people secretly hide a set of ear buds behind their hair, around a headband, or in a hood of a jacket. They hide it so it gives them a better chance to get away with it, which breaks 5 of the 6 Character Counts pillars: Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Caring, Respect, and Citizenship. The second reason: Playing games. Playing games like Clash of Clans, Minecraft, and etcetera is unnecessary, and breaks the same Character Counts pillars. Playing games is pointless, and when you do it, you are pretty much just skating on thin ice. Make it a great day or not, the choice is yours. Do the right thing Meadowbrook, it’s the best decision. OPPOSING VIEWPOINT: Angela Escamilla It’s the 21st century and now students deserve to use the technology that we have available to us. Our smartphones and tablets that we’re provided with are powerful resources that can help guide students through the years of school that they face. It wouldn’t be a distraction because teachers are great supervisors who can make sure consequences are given to anyone who is getting distracted by the use of these devices. Cell phones are good resources. A lot of help can be found online through various websites. I hope that in as we go towards the future our school can embrace the times and these amazing tools that we have.
