Next on the tee

T-E-A-M, that spells team.
You can ask any first or second grader that you know to spell team, and hopefully, if our educational system isn’t completely failing, they will spell it that way. It really doesn’t take an English major to tell you that there is not an “i” in the middle of team.

Smurf Turf: The endangered conference list

Okay, it’s only those with good memories or who have been here awhile who remember “Smurf Turf,” the thinking person’s sports column. “Smurf Turf” took a couple of years off while the columnist did what many young men of his faith do shortly after reaching the age of 19: We pin a name tag on our suits and head off for a couple of years and answer to the name “Elder.”

“Where’s the WIB building?” If this question were to be asked to a student, freshman or sophomore, they would probably be scratching their head. Some may even go in search of a newly constructed building on campus.

Controlling food cost, part of the USU cafeteria

The dining room at USU-Eastern has gone through many changes for the new semester. The reason for these changes is to control food cost. Now that we are with USU, we have to go by their rules. “USU sells in one day what USU-Eastern sells in one year,” said Becky Archibald. The price went up a penny from last year. There is also a new full time chef in the dining room is Tony Archibald. And now the dining room offers a buffet rather than when students paid for everything they took.
The new motto in the dining room is “Eat what you take and take what you eat.”
