I have observed this election turn people of a generally kind nature, into ravenous venomous vipers towards each other. Whether you voted for Trump or for Clinton, it seems that there is a great divide. Trump supporters have had their intelligence questioned to death, and Clinton supporters are labeled as whiny and sore losers. There are three words that can assist us all in this needy time of common sense. Get over it! If you really are willing to not budge an inch, then you are part of the problem. There is no middle ground where there once was.

I am one of those people who don’t want to be friends with people who voted for Trump. Because I am friends with people who share my values, and if you voted for Trump you obviously don’t share my values.

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.
