Silent Memories

2018-12-03T14:55:06+00:00

By Alejandra Chamorro It was 80 degrees outside, the sky was clear and I was mentally preparing myself to walk 20 minutes under the blazing sun. The typical college student would usually drive to Walgreens, but I do not have that luxury. Unlike them, my form of transportation is either Uber or my own two legs. [...]

Alums on the Go: The Reluctant Journalist

2018-12-03T14:56:09+00:00

By Maria Gil When I set foot into my first journalism class in the Fall of 2015, I only had one thought: I am not going to be a journalist. I am here because my parents persuaded me against getting an English degree. I was going to become a storyteller, not a reporter. I, the [...]

Saving Manatees from Red Tide

2018-11-28T17:17:41+00:00

By Natasha Rodriguez The normal clear waters of Florida’s Gulf coast have now become a muddy brown-red color and manatee deaths have taken a heavy toll because of it. As of October, last year, the red tide, or harmful algae bloom, has had a higher-than-ever concentration and is still being tested for in Florida. [...]

Restoring Florida’s Paradise

2018-11-28T17:17:29+00:00

Though this would be a significant moment in the state’s history, what’s gone largely unreported is that the four black members of Congress from Florida are all but assured re-election, with only Rep. Al Lawson facing opposition from [...]

SFMN Washington Bureau, Remembering Matthew Shepard

2018-10-29T15:28:52+00:00

By Gabriel Poblete Yesterday, I went to the National Cathedral for the service for Matthew Shepard. I walked into the National Cathedral and found a seat on the left shoulder, having arrived too late for a center seat. I wasn’t able to see the stage, with one of those gray, immense arches blocking my view. [...]
