  How far would you go to save a dollar? For some, penny pinching can be a gratifying way to afford a Snickers bar at the checkout line at Publix.

   Ah, Sadie Hawkins. The one day Trinity Prep students don their touristy Hawaiian T-shirts or dust off their flamboyant 70’s attire. In theory, it is a great opportunity for girls to take initiative and ask guys to a school dance—something that is a bit of an anomaly at Homecoming or Prom. Yet its ...
