Suspense and self help authors on campus for book signing

Fiction and practical advice are the genres of two local authors who will be signing their books in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center on Wednesday, Nov. 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the USU Eastern campus. Mandi Tucker Slack wrote a suspense-filled fiction novel about the FBI following a woman to Utah while Sherri Mills wrote a self-help book about saving marriages.
Slack was born in Price and grew up in Orangeville where she developed a great love of the outdoors. She enjoyed adventure novels as a child and has always been fascinated by books and writing.

Can I have your number?

The history of the practice of men being the ones to take the initiative, ask girls on dates, and ultimately to ask to wed, is a long and confusing affair involving multiple cultures, great minds, and a lot of excessive verbiage in which even a physicist would get lost. I prefer a simpler explanation, that, although it is not necessarily true, is much easier to follow and more enjoyable to imagine.

Chairapy is available to students, faculty

Have you ever felt stressed during the day? Have you just needed to go somewhere quiet to relax? “Chairapy” is now available to the students, faculty and staff of USU Eastern.
“Chairapy” is another name for the massage chairs located in the Student Activity Center building room 118.
There are two massage chairs and they operate for 15 minutes per person, Jan Thornton and Tammy Pantelakis from the Disability Resource Center came up with the idea.

USU Eastern’s campus is a dry campus

Officer James Prettyman of campus police and residential life warns, “enough is enough with this alcohol consumption by minors and adult minors. Someone is going to become seriously injured if not killed because of this activity.”

Mentalist comes to USU Eastern on Nov 4

Smurf Turf:

Dictionaries are changing, English teachers cringing, and sports columnists like me are smiling.  We have someone to write about who is the real deal and not just a jock jerk.  We have someone we want to see win just because he’s a really great guy.   His name is Tim Tebow.

World Series has memoriable moments

This year’s World Series between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals will go down in history as some of the best games ever. Both teams were not expected to even find themselves in the championship series.
The Cardinals won the first game 3-2. In game two, the Rangers won 2-1. Game three was one of the best games to watch because Cardinal first basemen Albert Pujols had three home runs. With those home runs, he tied Reggie Jackson’s record for most home runs in a World
Series game. The Cardinals ended up winning 16-7.

Fly fishing a lost art?

Most people have heard about and seen it but not many have done it. Fly fishing is becoming a lost art. Is this because people don’t want to put forth the effort to get good at it? It is difficult to become good enough to actually catch a fish. Everyone has bait fished. That’s where you sit on the shore and watch a bobber. It’s boring and not fun. This is why most people don’t like to fish. Not everyone has fly fished. It’s much more active with casting and anticipating a strike.

Bruins bite Eagles hard

 It wasn’t Utah State University Eastern’s night on offense nor defense. The Golden Eagles met the Salt Lake Community College Bruins at Brigham Young University on Oct. 20, 2011 to battle out a two-game series. The Bruins took an early advantage of pitcher Colter Moore and had three runs on the scoreboard before the team had a chance to get two outs.
The pitching struggled, as did the offense for USU Eastern which did not manage a hit until the fourth inning as shortstop Chance Abrath got on base with a single. The pitching staff was roughed up for 16 runs in seven innings.

A new beginning

Utah State University Eastern’s lady basketball team has a few returners and a loaded set of freshman. Returning to the team is sophomores: Candice Cornaby, Katie Bigelow, Jasmine Petit, Priscila Santos, and Abbie Kay. New additions really complement the team. A transfer sophomore from Alaska is Caitlin Nelson. With a young team of freshman, the coaches are excited for this year adding Hailee Parry, Sarah Fletcher, Whitney Fieldsted, Amy Arbon, Shelby Carson, Tandy Thackeray, and Brooke Slade.
