• Old Vine is Empty, Yeet!

    They say that you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. Something you now take for granted may go away one day and leave you feeling quite empty on the inside. That’s how I feel about Vine. When I heard Vine was going under due to not making enough money in January of 2017, I thought ‘Good, I’m glad […]

    Vine, a popular social media platform among, came out in 2013, but had an abrupt end last year and was shut down.
  • Students Take the Stand

    Mock Trial is exactly as it sounds, a mock of what a real trial is like. The Hale Mock Trial Club is one of the only student run mock trial teams in the seattle district. The students in the club are divided into two groups. Half of them are the defense and the students remaining are the prosecution. Both sides […]

    Hale’s mock trial is the only mock trial club in the area that is run by students; other schools are run by a teacher or mentor.
  • New Intentions for MLK Assembly

    Different leadership, a different assembly, and a different message. This year, for the first time, the annual Martin Luther King Jr. assembly was run by Hale’s Black Student Union, BSU. “In previous years, they definitely missed the mark because the people running the assembly were white,” senior Precious Anetipa said. The annual MLK assembly has been run by the leadership […]

  • Interhigh Leadership Conference

    On Jan. 11, the Seattle Public Schools area had its first ever Interhigh leadership conference, hosted right here at Hale. Seniors Denait Fisshazion, Precious Anetipa, and Olivia Mirascian organized this conference as their Hale Action Project after attending an annual conference held in Marysville every February. “It’s a conference where we invite all Seattle public and private schools to attend […]

  • Underground Currents Change Music Scene

    In recent years, dozens of musicians have become critically acclaimed with only a laptop in hand. And for every successful artist, there are thousands of bedroom musicians with small and dedicated followings. Most established underground artists know how to promote themselves. Senior Liam Dunlap is one of them. While active, his project “Color Hue” got considerable attention on Soundcloud, gaining […]

    Senior Liam Dunlap’s project “Color Hue” got considerable attention on Soundcloud, gaining over 315,000 plays.
  • Point Counterpoint: Defund NASA?

    I: NASA is a waste of $18.4 billion. Unlike every other way federal money is spent, NASA doesn’t make living any easier for anyone. The only purpose of NASA is to satisfy the white man’s desire to colonize the world now the darkest reaches of Africa are known. Space being cool is not a reason to spend money.   K: […]

    Point Counterpoint: Defund NASA?
  • On the Road with the Beautiful Friendship

    It’s 7:15 a.m. The sun hasn’t yet risen. It’s a foggy Wednesday morning at the Maple Leaf Lutheran Church parking lot. But there is laughter in the distance. The laughter of three teachers on their way to school. Physics teacher Karl Englert and language arts teachers Mark Greenway and Joel Jacobson are best friends. Everyday they meet on the corner […]

    Their route goes from Northeast 100th Street and 32nd Avenue Northeast, down 32nd Avenue, down Hale Hill, and into school from the student parking lot. They often make stops to find things and explore the neighborhood.
  • Mayor Creates Program for Free College

    Mayor Jenny Durkan started her first day in office by signing an executive order creating the Seattle Promise College Tuition Program. The program would allow all Seattle public high school graduates to go to community college for free, for two years. “There is no better investment we can make as a city than in the education of our young people,” […]

    New Mayor Jenny Durkan addresses the participants of the MLK rally at Garfield High School. Durkan discussed her new plan during her speech.
  • Fifteen Years of Anti-War Protest

    An anti-war sign hangs by two straps from a man’s shoulders as he paces along the street corner, offering pamphlets. A cluster of other protesters stand and sit, chatting with each other, holding banners, and maneuvering around sidewalk signs. “What you’re seeing is what we do every Saturday,” protester Glen Milner said. Their group, Lake Forest Park for Peace, meets […]

    John Makey (sitting) protests war every Saturday on the corner of Ballinger Way and Bothell Way. He’s been coming since 2002.
  • Transgender Troops Allowed to Serve

    Many residents of the U.S. look forward to serving their country. It is their chance to give back to the country that gave them freedom and opportunity. However, this hasn’t always been a reality for transgender individuals. President Donald Trump announced through a series of tweets last July that transgender troops could not serve in the U.S. military because of […]

    Citizens fight for transgender people’s rights to serve in the military during a protest in Washington D.C.. Protests broke out nationwide in response to President Donald Trump’s transgender military ban last July.
