You are here
Most of you don’t know me and that is okay, I don’t know most of you. I am a girl who likes to hide in her room. I am an introvert with extroverted tendencies. I am comfortable talking to people once the conversation started, but don’t like to be the one to start a conversation. Once you get to know me, however, you usually can’t get me to shut up, especially about things I am passionate about.

I knelt on the floor, clutching Prince Bradmir close to me. “Is he okay?” Captain asked. I nodded, “A little shaken, but no harm done.” Captain shook his head, “She got away.” He stood up holding onto a chair for support. “She always does,” I snorted. “I should know.” I glanced at him, “Why did you confront Melanie?” Captain met my gaze. “I heard you yelling and decided to check it out.” He nodded, “You were right.” “So, you’re letting me go?” I said hopefully.

In September 2015, Madi Barney, a Brigham Young University student, was raped in her off-campus apartment and reported the rape to the police who began the investigation. Soon after the report came into the Utah County Police Department, Edwin Randolph, a deputy sheriff and friend of the accused attacker, released the case file to BYU’s Honor Code office.

Many across the nation associate Utah with three things: Moab, skiing and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This article sadly isn’t about Moab or skiing, so we will move right along to the influence that the LDS Church has in Utah’s politics, particularly in the 2016 Utah Legislative Session that ended March 10. It is important to note that even though it is said that there is a complete separation of church and state, sometimes the LDS religion weighs in on some issues like SB73 and SB107.

It’s easy to talk a big game, rhetoric is what gets you elected, but sentiment means little when evidence casts light on what kind of leader you truly are. It’s great to say that you are proud to be an American, but what are you taking pride in? That we are 22nd in the world in science literacy? Or how about we are only the seventh most literate country? We are third in median-house income. What exactly makes us so amazing that the world should continue to look to us as examples? The party divisions are deeper than they have been in a century, and for no reason.

Money is tight at USU Eastern, that’s a rhetorical statement. So why does Eastern fund two separate computer labs for student use? The library lab has a room with 20 computers and another 17 on the first floor. The Reeves Building has 92 computers on the second floor, west end. Student computer labs were needed a decade ago, but are simply not being used on this campus or most campuses.

Randolf once told me that idiots have a condition called, sheer dumb luck. It keeps people alive or something along those lines. I guess it works over time for me every now and then, since the bad-tempered goose didn’t rip my guts out. I didn’t see what happened because my eyes were closed. However, I could feel the rush of air as the goose turned in mid-flight. Instead of getting my anatomy displayed, I heard the goose let out a startled honk followed by the sound of a heavy object landing on the wood floor.

With most of the attention in the country surrounding the Republican primaries, many have forgotten the ongoing feud between Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Since February, these two have been, and still are, battling over delegates across the states, each needing to get 2,383 delegates to win the nomination. Currently, Clinton has 1,243 delegates to Sanders’s 980, when not counting the Superdelegates. Superdelegates don’t make an official decision until the Democratic National Convention in July.

We stand tall for Brussels. We change our faces to the French Flag. We weep for the lives of innocents lost in a war we don’t understand. And yet, we don’t weep for Lahor, we don’t even hear about Lahor. We don’t weep because we somehow comprehend that war in the Middle East is “inevitable,” that it’s been going on “for hundreds of years. They are used to the constant onslaught of death.” I’m sure it’s safe to say most of us don’t even know where Lahor is or even the grand extent of their rich and beautiful history.
