  • The Standards Are Watching You

    By Samuel Schwartz
    Standardized tests have become a rite of passage in public high schools. Everyone sits for one. Everyone stresses about one. Everyone anxiously checks, re-checks, and re-re-checks their inbox on that fateful day when the mysterious test-grading powers-that-be descend from their palanquins to distribute scores to the expectant masses.

  • Snow Days Stealing Our Summer?

    By Kate Koenig

    As the school year entered early February, the groundhog’s prediction of an “early spring” wasn’t looking good. The Edmonds School District received heavy snowfall in the first and second weeks of February, with over 8 inches of snow in some areas. As March begins, piles of snow still remain in the Edmonds-Woodway student parking lot. In total, six days…

Inherit the Wind: Parallel Trials

By Stephanie Farmer

In the Edmonds Woodway Theater, the year finishes boldly with a drama: “Inherit the Wind” by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee.

A Need For Change In The Fashion Industry

Op-Ed by Anna Johnson

Without realizing it, you could be killing the environment and supporting the inhumane treatment of third-world employees. Many people don’t understand that the clothing they buy is made by underpaid laborers. Or that garment production leads to pollution. Or that billions of pounds of textiles end up in landfills each year. In a society fueled by materialistic values, we have become blind to the

Edmonds Woodway student Miriam Gold has founded a new club at Edmonds Woodway called Challah for Justice. The club makes traditional Jewish bread (pronounced Hah-luh) and sells it for charity.

Homeless in Seattle – What does it cost?

Op-Ed By Sarena Minden

SEATTLE – This beautiful place is one of the most well-loved and well-known cities on the West Coast, but how much does it cost to live here? When someone says ‘Seattle, Washington’ they probably think of great coffee, waterfront restaurants, universities and leading technology. What they don’t think about, or don’t want to think about, is the number of homeless people that currently call this city their home.

The Electoral College is Partisan

Op-Ed by Kaleb Nichols

“I think it needs to be eliminated.” That was Hillary Clinton in mid-September 2017 in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, reflecting on the 2016 election and the flaws in the electoral college that allowed her controversial opponent to take office (Merica). Similarly, her running mate Tim Kaine mentioned the strangeness that a candidate can win the popular vote but still lose the election in his speech shortly after the results of the election were announced (ABC News).

Walkout for Parkland

By Emelia Persell 

It’s hard not to know about the recent school shootings around America. Their effects are widespread; from victims dealing with grief, to people across the country thinking, “what if that happened here?” Perhaps even more disquieting, the people who relate to the shooter, who keep the cycle of violence alive.

A group of students* from Edmonds Woodway have decided to…

Ecosia

By Roni Flynn

Our world is engulfed in information. Smartphones, computers, and even TVs all have access to the search engines that we use dozens of times a day without even thinking about it. Even within writing the introduction to this article, I used a search engine twice already. Google, Yahoo, Bing, and many many more allow…

Words Should Mean Something

By Sam Schwartz

Words should mean things. Let me explain.

Take mission statements, those corporate-slime covered, oh-so-saccharine sentences that find their way onto business cards and the weird brochures that companies have to advertise themselves. While there are a few mission statements that have managed to evade this coating of syrupy hogwash, most are nothing more than…

Diversity Film Series: Become Indifferent to Differences

By Kristen Santarin

We live in a world that is made up of various characters, each person with a background and identity unique to them alone. No two people on the planet are the same. We each carry differences that shape us into who we are as individuals. Unfortunately, we also live in a world where these differences are often viewed in an unbalanced favor: some traits are viewed as pleasant, some are ignored, and some are…

Reputation By Taylor Swift

By Anna Fjortoft

Selling 1.216 million copies of an album only in the first week? Not a surprise for artists such as Taylor Swift. Reputation, her sixth studio album (Billboard), dropped on November 10th. The name of the album for sure is prevalent in most of the 15 tracks, as Taylor delves into the media scandals and rumors that plagued her public life last year.

The Implications of Free Will

By Graham Everhart

Do you control what you do? That depends on your definition of “control.” I won’t go full Vsauce-Michael-Here on you, but free will is one of those concepts that makes less sense the more you think about it. Many religious groups and philosophers claim it exists. Many claim it doesn’t. I claim that it’s impossible to know for sure, but I can analyze its consequences.

76th and 212th: A Look Into the Bane of My Ability to be on Time

By Kaiona Apio

From your alarm not going off, to your car not starting, the construction outside our school is probably on top of the list of reasons you’re late to class. It is for everyone. However, the majority of the student body is not aware of the details of the project. City Capital Projects Manager Jaime Hawkins and Transportation Engineer Bertrand Hauss elaborated…

Numbness Sweeps America: The Texas Shooting

By Bridget Smith

By now it’s routine. The country awakens, the residual innocence of sleep not yet dissipated. Coffee is brewed, the curtains fling open, and NPR flicks on. It isn’t until then that the soothing state of sleep is finally crushed; the news proclaims the most recent massacre or shooting. Body count, missing persons, various celebrities and politicians “thoughts and prayers,” and suspects flash on the screen. How did we get here? This violence…

Former U.S Attorney Becomes Seattle’s First Female Mayor Since 1928

By Emelia Persell

Seattle’s last female mayor was Bertha Knight Landes, the namesake of Seattle’s tunnel boring machine. Durkan won in a resounding…

Is the Blue Bin Really Green?

By Phoenix Cloutier

Recycling is one of the most basic practices preached by environmentalists, and for good reason. In 2016 alone, the Department of Energy recycled 230 tons of waste that would have otherwise ended up in landfills. Because of this, the government saved $13,800 which can now be used in other areas. There is seemingly no reason to throw recyclables into the trash. However, at Edmonds Woodway…

Inside Lionel Hampton

By Graham Everhart

The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, a regional competition between student jazz groups held annually at the University of Idaho, is a special experience because of how ordinary it is.
Perhaps “ordinary” has too negative of a connotation. I always enjoy Lionel Hampton. I’m part of the EWHS jazz program, and the jazz program attends every year, and every year…
