People are sick; wash your hands

It’s November. Fall is in the air but, sadly, so is the flu. People are getting sick and, on a school campus especially, that means that everyone seems to have something.
With H1N1 being the big scare, surely there’s something we can do to prevent it, right? In my perfect world, I would tell you all that salvation is nigh. We shall all be saved from this virus and no one else would get sick. But, seeing as I don’t play God here, this isn’t the case.

Archeologist studies tree-rings in SE Utah

Good news should be top news

The news seems to be sad, especially in recent decades. Don’t get me wrong, I want to know what is happening and what I need to be aware of but, a break from murder, disaster and war is welcome.
When I was on the newspaper staff in high school, I would sometimes write a “good news” article to cheer up others and myself when I felt the world was burdening me with depression and anguish. So I decided to continue with that tradition considering the events that took place throughout the year.

Broadening the mind; best reason to travel

CEU’s undiscovered heroes

Did you know that the College of Eastern Utah is full of unfound heroes? You see them every day, students learn from them and sit in their classes and maybe even sit by them in classes.
These heroes are not looking for publicity or even medals; because most of them have already earned all they wanted. These heroes are the men and women of our armed forces, whether they are serving, retired or disabled; they served our country with valor.
