Worst paying jobs

You want to become filthy rich. If you are the standard oxygen-breathing person, this applies to you. You have pondered from time to time the potential fast tracks to this lofty state of wealth and income. Many of you may have even found fortune in the money-making business. For those on campus who have yet to decide on their ideal vocation and make definitive educational goals, the most recent Payscale survey may offer some insights.

Cosmetology students raise money for cancer

USU Eastern’s cosmetology program joined area salons in the community to raise funds and awareness of breast cancer with a cookie and cake sale on Oct. 11 in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center where they raised $575.
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Alicia Marelli, owner of Bellasano Salon and Spa, is in her second year of the annual fundraiser to help women in the community offset the financial struggles of fighting breast cancer.

SUN Center: you never know when you will make a difference

Recently, the SUN Center participated in the United Way Day of Caring. Volunteers went to the Active Re-Entry facility near the fair grounds southwest of Price, where they were able to do some landscaping work for them. Although some results of the project were immediately apparent, we did not know the effect of the service until we received this thank you note:
“Dear SUN Center,

Coach Madsen selected as Outstanding Staff by his peers

Scott Madsen was chosen as USU Eastern employee of the quarter by a committee f staff members.

New face at the Disability Resource Center (DRC)

At USU Eastern, there is a new face, Dannette Moynier, who is located in the Disability Resource Center. She is a MSW intern as she works towards her master’s degree in social work. With this program, she has to have 600 hours of counseling experience, all volunteer.
Moynier is directly under Jan Thorton, director of the Disability Resource Center, who helps supervise, answer questions and give support. “She’s [Jan] is awesome, and because I’m a student we have counseling once a week, which helps me.”

Nursing students experience being in a wheel chair for an hour

can go across campus in a few minutes to get to class. We go to the restroom with relative ease. We are able to overlook numerous problems, many that would never even come to mind.
The nursing 1030 class was given an assignment that would open their eyes to some of these obstacles. The assignment being to spend one hour in a wheelchair, during which they were required to go shopping, use an elevator, go over a curb, sit at a table, use the water fountain, go to the restroom, and spend 15 minutes wheeling themselves.

USU Eastern sweeps Utah Elite, Colorado NW

The Eastern men’s baseball team took four games from this past week’s action. The Golden Eagles first faced Utah Elite, a Utah scout team ran by a former USU Eastern baseball assistant. Eastern proved to be no match for Utah Elite as they dominated on offense and defense. In the first game, starting pitcher Joe Barta paced Eastern defensively. Barta worked out of a jam in the first inning, and then threw five strong innings. In his five innings of work he struck out eight. The offense was led by freshman Cory Mckendrick who had two doubles in the game. Eastern won 7-1.

Co-head coach brings talent, strength to program

Coach Chelsey Warburton has always had a love for sports, with a love of volleyball bringing her to USU Eastern. She played volleyball while attending Carbon High School. She went on to attend College of Eastern Utah where she played basketball for a year and then onto Weber State University where another three years of basketball were played, but returned to Carbon County to coach the Lady Eagles.

Smurf Turf

Smurf Turf is impressed along with some other sports journalists in the Beehive state. Statistically speaking the best quarterback in the state of Utah is an 18 year old from Texas. Enter the man…er… kid they call Chuckie Keeton. Keeton is starting to make residents in Logan realize that the best football in Cache County is not at Logan High School.

The great debate

Who belongs in the BCS National Championship game? It seems like this debate comes up every year, and it does have to come up every year because unlike the professional sports college players don’t have to worry about salary caps and lockouts, which in reality makes life really nice. But back to the real subject who belongs in the title game? Right now five teams in the BCS standings and the AP Top 25 poll are all stand out teams that are undefeated and have a legitimate claim to go to New Orleans and participate in the All-State BCS National Championship Game.

Volleyball: hot and cold

The past few weeks have been rough at Utah State University Eastern. The USU Eastern Volleyball team rescheduled their College of North Idaho game, traveled north to the College of Southern Idaho and played Colorado Northwestern Community College in Rangley.
