You read that right. Do I have your attention? I’m just like any other person: I work, I read, I pay taxes, I can be happy, laugh, I can even get angry, just like many of you, I’ve had victories and defeats, highs and lows. Now I don’t know if I’m going through the stages of grief or if I’m just fed up with the unbearable hypocrisy enveloping my world, but I have a creative outlet and by god, I’m going to use it.

If the nursing program could be expanded to include a master’s degree it would certainly help out both USU Eastern and the residents of Carbon County. Such a program could contribute in campus funding and future careers across the county and all of Southern Utah. A student who finishes with the RN and LP or a Certified Nursing Assistant is going to Wasatch Front to continue with a master’s degree program, which is more expensive than if the program would be offered in Price.

“Live from New York! It’s Saturday Night!” is probably one the most recognized catchphrases in television history, but as soon as you hear it, you know you are going to laugh. Saturday Night Live! has been the staple of late night satire TV shows since its inception in the 1970s and will continue long into the late 42nd century. The show has always been a satire on various topics like politics, celebrities, movies, cultural phenomena and awkward situations you get yourself into when you glue your hand to a wall. (Yes, I’ve done that!)

I don’t know where to begin, for the first time, in a long time, I am struggling to find the words. As I stare at the blank screen and wrestle with my thoughts I am frustrated with the lack of eloquence I know I need to produce but my fingers fail me. Somewhere out there, there is the right combination of words that if put in just the correct order will somehow make everything better, yet finding them is proving far more difficult than I could imagine.

I recently returned from a weekend hunting trip with my brother and father, it’s a tradition that I’ve participated in all my life which predates me by many decades. More often than I care to admit, I find myself at odds with many whom I surround myself with over the practice and very nature of hunting. I take no issue with them, I feel they posit very real and understandable objections and to an extent I happen to agree with them if not in practice then in principle.

Life at USU Eastern is pretty average most days. When a sporting team wins, the decimal level goes up for a few minutes and then everything on campus returns to normal, even in the BDAC. Except this year. A university should be a place where differing ideas are celebrated not censored, even with the increased hostility during this election cycle. This is why several at USU Eastern found the removal of the television from the BDAC inappropriate.

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.

USUE is a great campus in Carbon County. Many students enjoy the campus and the management of it. Some of us heard the university needs to increase the number of the students enrolled here. Here in Price city, we have a two a three high School that provide a great number of the students to his university. A few strategies could be implemented to attract even more students each semester.
