A word currently thrown around on both sides of the aisle is the term “snowflakes,” which is mostly used by people who wish to describe the opposite side as not being able to hear any opinion other than their own. It is no secret this term has been used by conservatives to describe university students, typically used when defaming ...

“New year, new me.” You have probably heard this a lot since New Year’s, especially from your friend that just got their heart broken by their significant other on Christmas. Don’t mind them though, they’ll get better. I mention this to inform you all that this year, ASB is going to update th...

How change defines our year

Last year was tumultuous. It was met with conflict, disaster and tragedy, with hope fleeting at times. It didn’t matter what side of the political, social or economic spectrum anyone was on; whatever someone did, there was a passionate conversation alongside it. Perhaps Oxford Dictionaries phrased it best when they placed “youth...

A group of students and a few adults gathered in around the flagpole in front of MTHS late last month for an annual prayer circle, and as part of a global movement known as See You at the Pole Day (SYATP), locally organized by Mill Creek Foursquare Church. In fact, a scroll through the #SYATP Insta...

Assumptions, stereotypes and connotations

Filed under Letter from the Editor, Op/Ed

I was intimidated to write this column in fear of offending people or being thought of as a “feminazi.” That in itself is a huge problem within society. No one should hide their thoughts in fear of judgment or because they’re scared of being called a derogatory term that misrepresents their beliefs...

The future in store

Seniors. We love some, we dislike some, but no matter how you feel about them, a piece of you and MTHS is lost when they graduate. In the spirit of graduation, I decided to interview Aarthi Yogendran, Hani Nakkour and Judy Tran, a couple of seniors who represent the MTHS community well. Each one has be...

Filed under Letter to the Editor, Op/Ed

It is often said, in our society allegedly riddled with intolerance and prejudice from the right wing, that we should accept people of all cultures and beliefs - the notion being that no one should be judged for their opinions, their personal beliefs and especially not for their immutable traits such...

Filed under Dear President, Op/Ed

My name is Samantha Svikel. I’m a sophomore at Mountlake Terrace High School in Mountlake Terrace, Wash. and a reporter for my school’s publication, the Hawkeye. A few months ago you were elected into office and it surprisingly wasn’t as much of a shock to me as it was to others. I was defini...

Dear President Donald Trump Project

Filed under Op/Ed, Uncategorized

President Donald Trump has been making what seems like every headline in the news these days. It’s not necessarily because he’s a bad leader, but more due to his differences from former President Barack Obama. There are a lot of feelings in our country, community and around the world right now. ...

A free press is most deserved by American citizens

Filed under Letter from the Editor, Op/Ed

During my sophomore year, the Hawkeye Editor-in-Chief posed a challenge to the Hawkeye staff to memorize and recite the First Amendment. Later that same year, I would buy a T-shirt from a national journalism convention that read the First Amendment. This past summer, I attended class sessions held in the Newseum ...

Filed under Op/Ed

On the morning of Nov. 9, 2016, darkness tempted the sun’s wrath, the murk well-aware of its presence both literally and figuratively. The overcast weather only further enforced a mood of confliction that no one seemed to quite understand how to handle regardless of whose side they stood on. It took ...

Filed under Op/Ed, Staff Column

Looking back at 9/11 and more recently the Boston Marathon blast, people have started to write about and praise “first responders,” a person when hearing or seeing a catastrophe runs toward the incident immediately looking to help regardless of their previous training. OK, I know what you’re thinking. ...
