By Kim Stewart, Athletic Director/ Activities Coordinator

October 26, 2016


Filed under Op/Ed

Since I became the Activities Coordinator and Athletics Director here at MTHS in 1995 there is one thing that rips my heart out every time – having to tell a student athlete they cannot play. Whether it’s for grades or a violation of the athletic code, believe me it’s not a job many people w...

Filed under Op/Ed

That was a great Homecoming Week! I was so impressed by the effort put into planning the week by our ASB, for all of the spirit shown for all the dress-up days and on the day of the assembly. The whole week was just a great example of the kind of school we are—spirited, welcoming and enthusiastic. These are all ...

Making your voice matter

By Stephi Smith, Executive Editor

October 26, 2016


Filed under Letter from the Editor, Op/Ed

“Why do we have to keep talking about politics?” The voice of apathy interrupts the conversation, cutting a productive voice in half. It’s not a quiet voice. It’s raised above the others, eyes looking around as everyone stops in their tracks. I’m not sure when it became cool no...

In the summer of 1995 I made one of the best decisions in my life (I know you all weren’t even born yet) – I accepted the job of the Activities/Athletic Director at MTHS. I went from teaching five full-time health classes, to a world you can’t describe in a short article. As I sat at the...

Guns, blood, gore, fighting and profanity are what you will see in many of the video games of today.
