I’m sure you’ve heard about a million takes and thoughts on what Kaepernick did in a preseason game last Friday night, but I’m going to give you some more thoughts on it. Because in my opinion this is one of the most important sports stories of the year so far.

Lifestyles

The USU Eastern Eagle webpage lit up last week when Facebook posted stories about two deaths on campus from The Eagle webpage. Nothing unusual about stories being published from The Eagle on Facebook except for the accompanying photos. The first story was about a female employees in facilities who had died. Facebook did not post the photo of the female who died, but that of Jan Young, former director of academic records and registrar. Young retired in December 2015, is alive and happily enjoying her retirement.

Fall is my favorite time to cook. I love all the fruits and vegetables in season and how they mix with into a large array of dishes. As I started planning what to make for this article, I wanted to make something unique that I had never seen before to try and show exactly that. I decided to make apple-battered fish after a lot of planning. Even after I fully fleshed out my ideas and this recipe, a part of me doubted if this would work or if I had just created a monstrosity.

Or quite possibly you pictured a mighty, majestic waterfall cascading across massive boulders creating a picturesque landscape. For the students of Utah State University Eastern, this adventure can easily be reached in under an hour.

With summer drawing to a close, I am wrapping up what, for me, was the best summer of reading I’ve ever had. I’ve always enjoyed books, especially biographies. But this summer I wanted to mix things up and give myself a range of genres to cover, to test the waters and see if I would enjoy something I had not previously thought I would. I started with “The Pelican Brief” by John Grisham and found myself thoroughly enjoying it. Next I went way out there and read “Hardcore Zen” by Brad Warner, I found it a little tedious, but insightful, certainly not my cup of tea.

What an incredible time it is to be an Eagle with the 2016-17 school/athletic year here. Welcome back to another year of growth, school spirit, and athletic competition and student advancement. With any luck students had an ideal summer vacation and are restless to take on the year and challenges that wait in college.
