The library’s display of various Steampunk items and information on what steam punk is. “Our library director, Lori Brassaw came to me this summer, and asked if I would do a display on ‘Steampunk.’ I am assigned to the displays in the Library and change them on a monthly basis, with the help of our student supervisors. I decided to show this display in October because the movement itself is very costume oriented and I hoped it would go along with the month that most people seem to love to ‘dress up’ in costumes,” Library Manager Aimee Lauritsen said.

For most of this decade, the Green Bay Packers have been like a tsunami-proof house. They could withstand anything. Even when Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone early in the 2013 season, no Packer’s fan gave up. They still have that foundation. They can figure this out. We had the same attitude after Jordy Nelson tore his ACL in the preseason last year. They were able to figure it out and make the playoffs. That same attitude kicked in after the Packers struggled to start the 2016 season. Everyone says, “we’re going to be okay. They’ve been here before. They’ll figure it out.”

Photography students from Jason Huntzinger’s beginning photo class spent Oct. 6 in Goblin Valley State Park documenting the spectacular beauty and formations. Huntzinger said, “Goblin Valley is a unique and amazing geological phenomenon that is only a two- hour drive from our campus. It is a great photographic exercise to see everything in your composition because there is so much material, and a challenge to be selective about what to include in your frame.”

In the spirit of Halloween, I created a creepy recipe for everyone. I made a variant of chocolate molten cake, but instead of filling them with chocolate sauce, they have a blood-red pudding inside. I used a homemade tapioca pudding, because I liked the lumpy appearance it had. However, any pudding that you can dye red will work. Because it is so important to keep these cakes in one piece, the tin needs to be greased and floured. This will greatly decrease the chances of them sticking and being ripped opened.

There has always been debate over the existence of ghosts. But fortunately for Utah State University Eastern students, they can find out themselves. Carbon County is moderately famous for its ghosts. There are plenty of them, but none more famous than the White Lady. If there is anything known about the area, it’s coal mining. And in 1927 the first mine popped up in Spring Canyon. Two more followed trying to keep up with demand from Salt Lake. For the longest time the state’s best coal came out of Spring Canyon. This is where the legend of the White Lady lives.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you are the resident expert, the only person who can make the decision and provide solutions to any number of problems? I recently found myself in just such a predicament where I came to the gut-wrenching realization that I was overwhelmingly unqualified for the task at hand, parenthood. I have three children, that’s not much of an accomplishment in itself, they’re not terribly difficult to make, however, getting them from birth to adulthood physically intact and emotionally stable is another issue entirely.

During his presidency, President Obama has had to fight wars, rebuild an economy, deal with the most unproductive Congress in history, push equality, enact reforms and unite the nation. While he is a controversial figure in today’s politics, history will eventually remember Obama as one of the greatest presidents of all time.
