Des Moines, Iowa: referring to the fact that there's not many things to do in dsm... except for, of course, when it's caucus time.

A place that may not be the smallest city, but it doesn't stop you from eventually realizing that through just a few friends, you are connected to just about EVERYONE in Iowa.

Des moines Iowa Roosevelt high school's student newspaper. lead, designed, and edited by Emi Vilksin 2007-2008. a paper that strives to be taken seriously.

Iowa is one of very few states that offers student newspapers full adcantage of the freedom of speech. the roundup uses this right to publish controversial and news-worthy articles. this is an attempt to get high school students to be taken more seriously by elders and peers.
