There are some questions in life that will never be answered, like just how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop, or how many jelly beans are in the jar. But one of life's major questions is being answered everyday, and that question is, what happens when you put six very different people in one house and remove all supervision? The simplified answer is that you get a pure college experience.

The student run newspaper is, by precedent, a news outlet. Although over the years it has evolved into something much less noble than that, it's heart and soul lies in reporting important events that happen on campus. Such important events as people making out on Gibby on True Eagle night, or any time that Orrin Hatch comes to visit. Students crave news reports about how much Sessions residents hate eating in the cafeteria every day, and coverage of events they were too busy playing Sega Dreamcast to participate in.

Price city set up a 52-foot screen in Pioneer Park showing Ghost and Scooby Doo free as a way of thanking residents for conserving water this past summer. People brought families, chairs and blankets to watch the four hours of movies. A local citizen said, "I liked it, it's a good thing to have for a family outing it gives the kids something to do."

After making the decision to attend CEU, many students may begin to wish they had gone to another college campus where there is more to do. Even many natives of Carbon County are heard complaining that there is nothing to do and they can't wait to leave the area and move on. Whether or not you find yourself constantly bored is up to you.

Each year, ASCEU sponsered True Eagle night crosses the line of what is acceptable and proper in a school event. This campus activity takes away from the integrity of our school, and defaces the morals our college should stand for. The purpose of an institution of education is to inform and prepare us to become responsible members of society. It is not to confuse us and turn us into Vegas street dwellers, forced to lead a life of sleeping in trashy hotels and selling ourselves to support an illicit drug habit.

I have decided to do a follow-up to my Parker Jensen story due to the countless e-mails that flood my box daily. I had no idea that this story would stir the country to the extent that it has. I have received e-mails from people throughout the United States and actively deliberated on this subject for hours. I did not fully understand the ramifications of an article advocating the state to take a position of authority for a sick little boy. I am amazed that even a small newspaper like The Eagle has the power to affect the scope of the news.

Some inventions have changed all of humankind. When fire was created, man no longer was forced to eat raw food, but could create delectable treats such as smoked salmon, flame-broiled hamburgers, and s'mores. Some inventions were even more important than just changing what food we eat. When man first made brass, everyone threw out their old calendars, and started over again with the Brass Age, this also happened with the Iron-Age, and the Industrial Age.

As the weather gets cooler and the leaves start to turn colors there exists a certain sensation that penetrates the skin and goes straight to the soul. It is not, however, a sensation felt by everyone and is something almost intangible and indescribable. It is a feeling that stirs the spirit with the memory of stories told around campfires and the association of only the closest friends and family. Those who find themselves constantly turning their eyes towards the mountains and sniffing the breeze for the fresh scent of pine trees have been smitten.

A person should express himself or herself through written words to convey to the reader their feelings and ambitions. I have always stated my personal assumptions and assertions as a writer and will continue my effort to make changes at the College of Eastern Utah.
