  1. I am not a high schooler but I have enjoyed HawkTawk for years. This opening issue is fall of errors. You need a copy editor and fact checker. Also re your Opinion column, you should have two different sides, at least. Also a girl wearing a scarf top tells us that she’d like to be a stripper when she grows up. Not good.


    • Hello! I’m glad you have enjoyed HawkTawk for many years, I would like to further discuss with you the errors in the issue as I am unsure of what exactly it is you are talking about. When it comes to the opinion piece, yes it is important to have two different sides- that being said for years HawkTawk has been publishing one-sided opinion pieces, which, even if they do lack a full view give a good show of how one person feels about an issue. This is the first time we have had a more conservative voice write an opinion piece for us, and we at HawkTawk are all very proud of her outstanding work, even if we don’t agree with her. Opinion pieces are not reporting- something which we want to clarify, and as such are biased and meant to explain an individual opinion in depth as opposed to several different opinions in passing. We are careful to separate opinion from reporting but we do not see anything wrong with being opinionated in a piece meant to be so.
      When it comes to the girl in the scarf top wanting to be a stripper, I’m a bit confused as to what you mean. Would you be able to clarify that for me?

  2. To the stellar staff of the Hawk Tawk:

    The recent edition of “A Day in the Life of BHS” was very interesting, well-written, photographed, and illustrated. What a great idea to take something seemingly mundane and turn it in to something very personal and compelling. Kudos to you all.

    Both of my children are/have been students of Belgrade HS, so I don’t often take the time to read the Bozeman HS student paper. But the bottom line is: the US high school experience is, for the most part, a universal one that all – who are in it or have been through it – can relate to.

    You all have bright futures ahead of you. Keep on carrying the torch of The Fourth Estate. Your work and voices are more critical now than ever.


  3. Hey, as a former HT (sports) editor and BHS alum / old fogie, I am so completely impressed and moved by your issue that came with this morning’s chronicle(5/1/2020). The writing is clean and well-edited. The articles are interesting, relevant, well-researched, and thoughtful. Also, there is a lot of content!

    From a thoughtful response the the Tiger King (I mean it, it’s a really great take!), to Ms Bulis’ lovely piece about mental health, to the article about essential workers, to a great interview and piece of reporting about the woman who tested positive for COVID-19, this issue is deeply impressive and obviously represents a ton of time, care and effort.

    I feel terrible for you all being stuck at home, especially the seniors. What a strange and difficult time. Yet your team’s way of dealing with everything is to put forward care, critical thought and intentionality into a quality product.

    Damn. Good for you all. It’s enough to give a person hope. The kid’s are alright, so they say. Keep kicking butt.
