USU Eastern campus in state of near lock down
Hydrant proves to be void of use
Seth Richards
news editor In the event of a fire in Sessions Residential Hall at USU Eastern, 1,200 feet of hose may be needed to save lives. In April 1989, the Utah State Legislature enacted the Uniform Building Standards Act Utah 5856 (UBS) in an effort to create uniformity in the construction requirements throughout the state. Prior to April 1989, building requirements were at the discretion of the municipalities or counties. Article one, section nine of the U.S. Constitution, prevents the act from being imposed on buildings built before the passing of the UBS. As a matter of public safety, Utah R710-4-3 requires at least one fire drill per nine-month school year as long as the building has a functioning alarm system, detailed floor plans, is not classified as a high rise, and does not contain excessive quantities of hazardous materials in academic buildings. The drill requirement does not require proximity to an external water source or necessitate an internal sprinkling system. The Eldon B. Sessions residential hall (Sessions) was last renovated and dedicated in October 1988. While the occupants of Sessions have previously been dependent on a hydrant on the south side of the hall, during an annual test during the summer, the Price Water and Sewer Dept. and USU personnel found a leak in the water source. The hydrant has since had a bag placed over it, to ensure that it is not tapped in the event of a fire. “The problem with this hydrant is that we can’t just repair it. It needs to be moved to another location.” Steve Bell, Utah State University fire marshal, said in an email, “A new location has been selected, which will serve [as] the fire sprinkler system for Sessions

None of these witnesses claim to have seen him leave; the city police speculate that this could have been easily done through the alley behind the house. According to a KSL report and the Price City Police, Schade and his wife deny any involvement. On scene, Steele called Prettyman with what he knew. Prettyman then contacted Blaney Hanvey, residential life coordinator. Hanvey sent texts to the residential advisors, “Please have all residents stay inside.

news editor The USU Eastern Price campus was in a state of near lock down and confusion on Tuesday, Sept. 25, when a local resident allegedly shot a high-powered rifle into the air near campus. At about 6 p.m., Officer Cletus Steele, of campus police, was in the parking lot behind the USU Eastern purchasing and receiving building when he heard the report of what he identified as a high-powered rifle. Steele was the first officer on scene at 660 North 200 East, Price. Price City Police, who were short handed that evening, arrived five or six minutes after the shooting, followed by the county and

state police. Helper Police Chief Trent Anderson and USU Eastern Police Chief James Prettyman came later to assist. The officer on duty in Wellington offered to assist, but wasn’t needed at the time. Sergeant tracy Allred was the first of the city police to take charge, but was relieved shortly after by Captain Bill Barnes. Attempting to contact the resident, Ralph Schade, the police were unable to find any phone numbers for him. Unable to get a car close enough to the house without putting an officer in danger due to the distance of the front of the house to the street and the alley running parallel to the back, the police attempted to contact Schade by megaphone. Witnesses claim that they saw Schade step into his front

People not signed up for Code Blue
news editor In the event of an emergency on the USU Eastern-Price campus, only 136 people would be informed as of Sept. 25. The Code Blue system uses students’ preferred email address and phone contact information to spread information about emergencies or hazardous situations that might require students to evacuate or stay where they are. The information is given to a few university authorities who can either use it to send out messages prepared in advance or to create warnings and send them to students.

SUN Center, athletes raise funds for disabled
USU Eastern’s SUN Center and athletic department were key players in the Active ReEntry’s 9th Annual Run, Walk and Roll Marathon on Sept. 23, in Price. Over $13,200 was raised by the 107 participants, said Liz Martinez from Activie ReEntry According to Terry Johnson, SUN Center director, 40 people from the USU Eastern community gave $15 each to sponsor the 58-race participants in the Annual 5K race.  Some sponsored more than one runner. We needed participants who were in fairly good shape so the athletic department took on our challenge. This helped on at least three levels: assisted our student athletes to be better prepared for their games, served those in need in the community and brought a smile to your own heart, he said. One half of the baseball team showed up to run that morning as well as basketball players.  Active Re-Entry didn’t turn them away and let them run for the cause.  Coach Paur offered to make up

Ambassadors given recruitment goals
editor-in-chief Eastern has the least name recognition of any other institution in the state, according to Greg Dart, director of enrollment services. “We’ve got to market better than anyone in the state and that’s what we plan to do,” Dart said speaking of the USU Eastern ambassador team. Last yea r, 2011-2012, 98 potential students attended the

Karli Morris

seven Eagle Experiences planned to come onto the Eastern campus and see how their life could be. As of Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012, exactly 500 potential students were signed up for the seven Eagle Experiences planned for this year. Dart said, “These numbers are nothing short of amazing.” Eagle Experience is a vital part of recruiting of USU Eastern. Someone who has visited a college campus is four times more likely to enroll. Someone who goes on an overnight visit

to a campus has an 80 percent likelihood of enrolling for the fall semester. New strategies have taken over the ambassador presentation to the many college days attended throughout the year. Rather than a presentation of facts and figures, such as tuition costs, ambassadors give potential students a look into what life is really like on the USU Eastern campus. An outline of a very involved student’s life is shared to demonstrate how

IT services listed as poor by residential life
editor-in-chief Internet services at USU Eastern’s residential units were listed as poor, as well as the enforcement of visitation hours, according to a fall 2011 survey of residential life residents. The survey asked questions about students’ experiences on campus, housing, activities and food. They were asked to agree,

disagree or remain neutral to a series of questions about campus life. Most students agreed that they would recognize their hall director if they passed in the hall, however, students seemed less comfortable actually talking to their hall director about issues or concerns. Most students seemed more comfortable in going to their RA (resident advisor) with problems. Word was getting out about

hall activities with responses of “agree” and “strongly agree”, although most students said that they do not actually attend such events. When asked to give ideas for what activities they would like to see in their halls students suggested more parties and more food. When the survey asked how life at residence hall could be improved most said that they dislike having visitation hours

Legislators came to look at building plans
editor-in-chief Three senators, four members of the Utah House of Representatives and state administrators visited the USU Eastern campus on Sept. 25, to take a closer look at the plans for the proposed arts and education building. The purpose of the visit was to let the legislator see the improve-

ments (Reeve’s and the WIB) that have already been made to the USU Eastern campus, as well as see the third of the campus that still needs to be updated (the SAC, Geary Theater and music building). USU Eastern administration hoped that the visit would help the legislators see the need on campus for the building. And that they did, “They expressed great understanding and sympathy,”

said Chancellor Joe Peterson. However, they expressed concern towards enrollment at USU Eastern. Peterson agrees that enrollment is an issue on campus. The USU Eastern recruitment team is making strides towards raising enrollment for fall 2013. If future enrollment increases, USU Eastern administration expects to be another step closer to receiving funding for the pro posed building.

Three things that you didn’t know were making you smarter
viewpoints editor Last week I depressed you by saying three things that were making you dumber without you knowing it. And I feel bad about that, I really do. In effort to make things up, I’ve decided to perk you up with this newest article, and so without further ado, I present you with three unsuspecting things

that can boost your brain power in ways that you would never expect. Things like… 3 -W hat you’r e wea r i ng: Throughout this article I will make reference to studies done by scientists and researchers because, well, most of us accept that scientists are smart guys. But what made them qualified? Genes? That so called education? What if it turns out that their secret is those fancy lab coats they’re always wearing? Well surprise! In a study known as a Stroop test (it measures brainpower) scientists tested a group of participants where half of them were dressed in a lab coat while the others were dressed normally. The results? Those wearing the lab coats only made half the mistakes

of those who didn’t wear the coats. While I would like to wish that it simply takes a lab coat to suddenly have 45 extra IQ points, apparently it doesn’t work like that. And just to make sure that this wasn’t some sort of insane fluke, they made another test, where participants had to find the differences between similar pictures. With this test, some of the participants were given lab coats while the other stayed in their ordinary clothes. Of those in the lab coats, half knew they were in actual lab coats while the others were told they were in simple painters clothing. Again the results showed that those in the lab coats had scored significantly higher than those who thought they were in painter’s clothes as well as those

in regular clothes. The researchers believe that wearing a lab coat simply makes us feel smarter, and as other psychologists have found; simply believing you’re smarter actually makes you smarter. Of course on the other hand, this seems to mean that we all think that painters are idiots. 2 -Your Attitude. Yes I know that many people are fans of a positive outlook on life and say thanks to it, they make it through the day, leave their house with a smile and come back with that same one plastered over their face. To them, the world and their job is nothing but sunshine and gumdrops. Psychologists, society, even our parents would like us to believe that our positive mood swings make us and the world a

better place. Better? Debatable. But more intelligent - absolutely not. Multiple studies have proven this, and one Australian researcher has even gone as far as to say, “Angst and sadness promote information processing strategies best suited to dealing with more demanding situations.” To prove this he made participants watch short films about cancer and death which provided a natural excuse for the somber mood before passing out different tests. These tests were designed evaluate arithmetic, past recollection and even judgment. When the time for grading came, he found that those who had been subjected to the films had made fewer mistakes, were better judges of character, and

What campus security and residential life don’t want you to know
news editor The second amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Utah State University, while it doesn’t necessarily infringe that right, will not tell you the extent to which you may exercise your constitutionally guaranteed autonomy with weapons. The University of Utah has maintained that the protection of the first amendment right to free exchange of ideas and information without reason to fear or be coerced requires that firearms be removed from academic environments entirely. In March 2002, the U of U filed suit against Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, who argued that the ban on weapons infringed on

Seth Richards

the rights of those who are permitted to carry concealed weapons anywhere other than legislatively determined safe zones. The result of this lawsuit is found in Utah 53B-3-103. In an effort to maintain the integrity of Utah as a free state, the state limits the carrying of firearms in prisons, courts and airports. On the campuses of publicly funded institutions of higher education, Utah 53B-3-103 stipulates that it is the privilege of the state legislature to regulate firearms. The section gives the power to establish no more than one secure area at a college for use as a hearing room, in which firearms may be banned to the institution. Furthermore, the state code authorizes institutions to institute rules permitting residents to request roommates who do not carry currently valid concealed carry permits.

It does not mandate that all institutions must make such a rule, nor does it permit the school to require that students without concealed carry permits not keep other, potentially deadly, weapons in their residences; a right which could be interpreted from Utah 762-405 which permits deadly force in the protection of an individual’s habitation. The USU Eastern residential life handbook prohibits in the residential halls, “Firearms or other weapons, per the code.” It is often stated by residential life authorities, that those wishing to keep firearms at the college may keep them in their vehicles or in the purchasing and receiving/police station. The USU Student Code V-3 B-20 (section relating to misconduct) warns students that disciplinary action will be taken in the event of, “Illegal or unauthorized

possession or use of a firearm, ammunition, explosives, weapons, or dangerous chemicals on University property.” The CEU Code of Conduct 4.1.11 prohibits: “Illegal or unauthorized possession of firearms, explosives, other weapons, or dangerous chemicals on college premises or use of any such items, even if legally possessed, in a manner that harms, threatens or causes fear to others.” While it is a citable offense in the state of Utah to brandish firearms or use them to threaten without cause, neither the state nor the school define “what threatens or causes fear.” It would seem safe to say that there will always be those who will fear firearms, and that by so stating in the code of conduct, USU Eastern effectively bans firearms from residential halls. While many acquire concealed

carry permits so that they may carry outside of their homes, the state of Utah recognizes the right of individuals to carry firearms without such permits in their habitations, and effectively recognizes automobiles as an extension of an individual’s habitation. That the college, state and federal codes permit the possession of firearms on college campus by those who are not using them for intimidation or in a threatening manner, is not something that the residential life authorities will tell the student body. The college may limit open carry to law enforcement, but is not afforded the privilege of limiting consee Security page 3

Auto Department hosts Odyssey
National Alternative Fuels Day set for Oct. 12
USU Eastern’s Automotive De partment is hosting the second annual Odyssey: National Alternative Fuels Day on Friday, Oct. Stan 12 from 9 a.m. Martineau to 1 p.m. in the Macdonald Career Center parking lot. Its theme is a Decade of Difference: Driving Change Across America. Odyssey is a biennial outreach event dedicated to promoting the use of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles, says Stan Martineau, automotive assistant professor. In addition to alternative fuel vehicles, demonstrations on fuel cell, solar and wind energy, waveform patterns, diagnostics, and five-gas analysis (showing the difference in vehicle emission particulates between older and new vehicles) will be presented. Information will be available on low resistance “green” tires and energy efficient oil. West Virginia University provides the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium that provides the nucleus of the program. Martineau is a contributing writer for the consortium. Martineau said the governor’s office is sending a representative to the event as well as other local, regional and state representatives. Displays include a Chevrolet with an electric Volt, Toyota with a hybrid Prius, Ford with vehicle information including their new electric Focus, Utah Clean Cities Coalition, EPA (what they do and why), Questar with CNG (compressed natural gas) vehicles and information, Les Schwab (green tires and energy savings tips) and CarQuest with energy saving tips. Demonstrations on fuel cells and biodiesel will be provided by USU Eastern students throughout the day. Martineau said the day should be a great fit for the science, technology and engineering students (STEM) plus career exploration opportunities. Junior high and high school students from Southeast Utah will attend the demonstrations.

New opportunities for employment on campus
lifestyles editor This year, students at the USU Eastern Price campus have an increased opportunity to find employment on campus. Dean of Student Life, Dr. Alex Herzog requested that the institution fund additional work-study dollars by $50,000. This effectively doubles the money available to hire students on campus. In past years, it has been noted that many students are not only struggling to find employment, but being forced to choose between working at a distant location, or attending classes. Work-study programs were cre ated to remedy that problem by providing students with a work environment that is conducive to academic success. Although the U.S. Government-operated FAFSA finances work-study opportunities for students who qualify (about 30-40 each year), there are many more who could benefit from an on-campus job. Herzog wants to provide students with

every possible way to succeed. So he, along with the financial aid office, have implemented a campus-wide program, inde pendent from FAFSA, which provides 30-40 more jobs for USU Eastern students. Departments such as, food services, distance education, maintenance, auxiliary, records and registration, the BDAC, disability resource center, English and math labs, teacher’s assistants, athletics and theatre tech are hiring student employees. The departments pay 25 percent of the wages and the work-study fund pays the remaining 75 percent. There are exceptions for de partments with great need and little to no funding; they are able to go through a process to apply for work-study employees paid for fully by the institutional fund. Work-study not only pro vides students with convenient employment, it also gives de partments an opportunity to hire workers for 25 percent of the expense of a non-student employee. This means departments can afford to have more

staff, which will improve the quality and efficiency of the departments and the college campus as a whole. There will soon be a page on USU Eastern’s website directing students on how to apply for work-study positions. Until then, Kim Booth and Tammie Pantelakis in the financial aid office can help students with any questions they might have. Ultimately, Herzog recognizes that when there is no pressure between work and school, students can feel at ease on campus and improve their academic performance. The institutional work-study fund has only been approved for this academic year. Herzog hopes that this pro gram will have a positive effect on students, and the departments that hire them. If the relationship proves to be symbiotic, it is possible that USU Eastern will continue to offer additional work-study opportunities to students. When a student works on campus, they stay on campus, they become a part of campus, and that is what the college experience is all about.

Lock down

continued from page 1 Leavitt Student Center. The BDAC was also effectively closed. “Nobody was locked down.” Prettyman said, “People perceived it as being a lock down. It really didn’t meet the definition because we didn’t send out a Code Blue warning.” After conferring with Steve Mecham, USU director of public safety, Prettyman contacted Brad King, vice chancellor for administration and advancement, and Alex Herzog, associate vice chancellor for student services, in an attempt to execute a Code Blue emergency warning. Although, at the time, only 136 students and faculty at USU Eastern were signed up for Code Blue, it would have made taken the school a step closer to a lock down. Judy Crockett, USU emergency management coordinator might have sent out the code blue, had she not first contacted Prettyman who told her, between 60 and 90 minutes after the shots were fired, Schade was located in Wellington with his wife. A Price officer was then dispatched to arrest him. Schade has been charged with use of a firearm within city limits, a class B misdemeanor, and released.

and that they feel like they are still being treated like children with a curfew. Others complained that they don’t think a person’s body should be considered an open container and that the Internet services were poor. Others thought life in residence hall was great and that nothing could be changed to improve their experience. Students were satisfied when it came to dining services staff being clean and courteous. The

While some still “strongly agree” that “the overall quality of food served is excellent,” many others selected “disagree” and “strongly disagree.” When the survey prompted comments on how dining services could be improved, most suggested better food quality and more variety, not certain food being offered a certain day of the week, every week. Other comments included, more seating by the Golden Grille and more meals offered on a meal card, or go back to a monetary value instead of by meal. Coordinator of Residential Life, Blaney Hanvey, said, “Residential Life Policies and Procedures are designed to promote academic success, student safety, and provide a comfortable living environment to students.”

Officer Jason Marshal, who was in the Bunnel Dmitrich Athletic Center, was asked to advise as many students as possible, that they should avoid north Price if they needed to leave campus, not to loiter outdoors and to stay out of the way of the police. Marshal started in the Western Instructional Building, closest to the shooting, and the Jennifer

There were about 1,290 contacts attending USU Eastern campuses, of which 136 were students and faculty at the Price campus. Members of the USU Eastern community are encouraged to sign up.

It will be a difficult week for many people both on campus and for those that felt Brad’s influence in their lives in other settings. It is amazing to look at the far reaching effect that he had on people’s lives and not just the young men with whom he associated. “His laugh and his ‘Live t he D rea m At tit ude’ were a b s olu t ely i n fe c t i o u s.   I will always remember his do the small thing well

Brad was a winner in every sense of the word.  We will continue to miss him.” All American USU Eastern basketball player and team cap tain last season, Chase Flint, said, “Since Brad’s death my life has changed a lot, I wasn’t sure who to turn to. But I say something or do something everyday that reminds me of him and it makes me happy of the influence he had in my life that I can have in other people’s life. I use his quotes all the time just about optimism and positive attitudes. When I talk to friends about him, always something like Barton would have loved that or that reminds me of what Barton

used to do. Even though he’s gone, he still has an impact in my life and many other people’s lives. So he’s gone but not forgotten.” Even though it’s hard to imagine Barton being in a better place, he always told everyone he was living the dream. And now that he is living the dream in a better place, we are reminded of the lyrics of Billy Joel’s song: “Only the Good Die Young.” “They say there’s a heaven for those who will wait, some say it’s better, but I say it ain’t.

The results were stunning in that they showed that after regular doses, the patients were two times faster and significantly more consistent at answering memory-based questions than the control group. This is all possible because nicotine is able to improve communication among the learning centers of the brain. Even if you can remember how the beginning of this article began (proving that you don’t have Alzheimer’s), nicotine has the same effect on you as on the elderly. This time, instead of pumping a teenager’s blood with the stuff they went for a more standard approach by first filling mice with the stuff and then testing them on their special learning and memory later in their adult life. They were able to find that those who had received small, steady levels of nicotine learned faster and had performed significantly better, even months later.

Halloween is right around the corner Beware of spooks, ghouls, zombies

SUN Center’s fall projects
staff writer Over 1,200 hours of service projects have been accomplished already this fall by the USU Eastern SUN Center. They began their service before the academic school year with some activities at the end of summer. At the beginning of August, various volunteers accomplished 124 hours of service at the Emery County Lamb Fry. The money raised from this service opportunity went towards the renovation of the Old Huntington Flour Mill. The SUN Center continued throughout August, volunteering at the Carbon County Fair Aug. 9-11. At USU Eastern’s combined leadership training, also known as Catalyst Training, Aug. 19-23, approximately 80 students and staff members were able to accomplish over 150 hours of service throughout the week clearing meeting areas, rebuilding an amphitheater and groom-

guest writer Color changes, cool winds and screams are just a few things fall brings every year. With Halloween right around the corner, you can guarantee that the Spring Glen School of Screams spirits are read to scare you. With new and improved rooms, the old school house is set with new scares and additions you won’t want to miss. Coordinators Jon and Jenny Black are keeping the original characters like the white lady and gypsies, but adding a new twist of characters including cannibals, babies and freaks. The volunteers from last year and a few new people have put in weeks of hard work to make sure this spook alley is as good as it can be. Rebecca Patterson, cosmetology student says, “I love this time of year because I get to come and volunteer doing

something that I actually enjoy!” The cosmetology girls will do hair and make up again this year and some are even volunteering to hide in the house. The school houses’ opening night is Oct. 5-6 and be open every Friday and Saturday night plus Halloween night from 8 to 11 p.m. in October. Like last year, the cost is $10 per person for all ages. The address is 1950 West 4100 North in Spring Glen and for additional information or questions, call (435) 472-HOWL. The Blacks have gone to great lengths to make this spooky school as fun as can be, while being mindful of safety precautions and even being careful of age appropriate scaring for those little ones you might think of bringing. They are asking to everyone to support the school and the community in an attempt to make improvements to the old building and have some laughs and, of course, scares.

ing trails. This was followed by several hours of service given by the leaders during Move-In Day at the USU Eastern residential halls Aug. 25-26. Things did not slow down after that. Since college began, multiple service opportunities have presented themselves. Student leaders were excited and ready to help with the Day of Caring and The Mammoth Marathon, both of which fell on Sept. 8. They also helped out at the state rodeo that weekend. Between those three service opportunities, there were over 100 students, faculty, staff and administration from USU Eastern that gave over 540 hours of meaningful service that day. The residential advisors were able to organize a basic campus clean up Sept. 12. This was quickly followed by the Kiwanis Kid’s Day on Sept. 15. On September 22, Active Re-entry held their annual Run, Walk and Roll. Many of the student volunteers were from USU Eastern’s Athletic department as

well as the student body, faculty, staff and administration. They, as a collaborative group, were able to give close to 170 hours of service at the Kiwanis Kid’s Day, while helping out the local Price community. There was an additional 226 hours of service rendered at Active Reentry’s Run Walk and Roll. Some of the upcoming SUN Center events include: Green Team, every Friday from 10-11 a.m.; Kids @ Heart, every Tuesday and Thursday, 11:30 a.m-12:45 p.m.; domestic violence 5K, Oct. 5, 9 a.m.-noon; cleaning the walkway, Oct.11; Shoopapaloosa Face Painting, Friday, Oct. 12-13, noon-9 p.m. both days.

Book Review: A Farewell to Arms
staff writer It may be difficult to pick up a book that was written more than 80 years ago. But that is what I did when I picked up A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway. Most people relate a “classic” with required reading in high school. It can be hard to break out of the stigma that required reading equals boring. Ernest Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature, which is one of the most prestigious honors an author can be awarded, in 1954 for his contribution to literature. He was awarded a Silver Medal of Bravery during World War I while an ambulance driver for the Italian Army. He was also involved in World War II. He lived a troubled life. He was married four times and committed suicide in 1961. A Farewell to Arms is a fiction piece loosely based on Hemingway’s life. An American Lieutenant Frederic Henry who is an ambulance driver for the Italians tells the story. The first part of the book is relatively slow. The lieutenant’s life on the front is pretty laid back; plenty of drinking and trying to meet women. He soon meets Catherine Barkley, a British nurse at the hospital where he is stationed. And so begins their romance. Lt Henry is wounded after the Austrian’s attack the Italian front. He is sent to a hospital in Milan to recover. Luckily enough Catherine is sent there too. They spend the summer together and fall in love.

When Lieutenant Henry has finally healed and is preparing to go back to the front Catherine tells him that she is three months pregnant. After only a few days back on the front, the Austrians break through the Italian front and the Italians call a full retreat. While in retreat, the Lieutenant and his party pick up two officers. On their way to their regrouping the two officers decide to revolt and leave the Italian Army. The Lieutenant has no choice but to shoot and he kills one of them.

A few days later, he is taken for interrogation by the Italian version of the military police. He sees that every officer is questioned then executed. The interrogators believe that it is because of the officers that the Italians have been defeated. He breaks free from his captors and rides a river and then a train to reunite with Catherine. They make plans to flee to Switzerland and escape from the Italians and war altogether. Lieutenant Henry and Catherine make it to Switzerland and

find an older couple to live with. Things are quite wonderful. They spend all their time together and wait for the baby to come. Once the baby decides to come, everything changes and their lives are turned upside down. A Farewell to Arms cements Ernest Hemingway’s claim as a great American author. His writing is straightforward and often grim. He never beats around the bush. Especially when it comes to parts about fighting and killing. His tone softens when it comes to parts with Catherine and Lieutenant Henry’s romance. A Farewell to Arms raises many questions to the reader. For one, Lieutenant Henry is an American fighting in WWI before the United States declared war. How many people are willing to do what it takes to receive any type of medal from the military? Would you be willing to return to a war front after you had been injured? Would you act as Lieutenant Henry did when faced with insubordination? And then a few days later, he runs just as the man he shot did. How do we act when trouble and tragedy strikes? During the first few chapters, I had to push myself to keep going. As soon as I reached the part where he was wounded, I wanted to keep going. It seems that most books written today have much more going on during their beginnings; so understandably I have fast paced everything ingrained into me. It is a book filled with more than just war and romance. The reader will have plenty of points of morality to ponder if they just look and ask.

Local artist KaeLynn Winn’s work featured at Gallery East

Emery County native KaeLynn Winn always knew she would return to her love of painting. Her talent for making art started at an early age and continued well into adulthood. “My first experience creating a painting is a treasured memory,” Winn says. “Up until kindergarten, my experience with art was limited to coloring with crayons, which I adored. One fateful day I was given vivid red and blue finger paint and set free! The juicy red and dreamy blue paint mixed before my eyes and a deep, rich purple appeared to delight my senses,” she recalls. From that point on, Winn was hooked. Her love of art and creativity motivated her to seek more knowledge and many ways to draw and paint. She studied art books and ‘how to’ draw

and paint handbooks. She checked out everything from the local library that served her artistic thirst and even took weekly lessons from a woman who flamed her interest in oil painting. Winn, who is known locally and among crafters for her original clip art designs, has developed her artistic skills since those early encounters with art making. She went on to pursue art in college, completing an associate of art’s degree from College of Eastern Utah, followed by a number of art history courses and studio art classes at Utah State University in Logan. “In the fall of 1991 I decided I needed a break from school and moved back home to work for a while and spend more time with my sweetheart,” Winn remembers. She married her sweetheart in 1991 and now, with her husband,

raises her four children in Ferron. In 2000, Winn began creating clip-art illustrations for an online company. For the past 10 years, she has produced approximately 700 full-color illustrations for the website. “ I was also chosen by the company to be a featured artist for one of the Provo Craft Hugware clip art CDs,” Winn says. “The entire body of clip-art was rendered in colored pencil with the exception of the last two sets which came out in 2009 and were painted in acrylics. Working on those last clip art sets helped me rediscover my love for painting.” Now, after a long break from painting, she is ready to produce and show her work again. “Winn has painted some wonderful pieces that reflect her love of this area,” says gallery director,

Noel Carmack. “I think visitors to the exhibit will not only be impressed with her skill, but also her obvious affection for the scenes and subjects found in her rural surroundings.” Winn’s exhibit, “Legacies of Home: Paintings by KaeLynn Winn,” will be on display from October 8 – November 8 at Gallery East on USU Eastern’s Price campus. An opening reception and artist talk will be held Friday, October 12, from 7-9 p.m. in Gallery East. The gallery is free and open to the public during the academic year. Gallery East’s fall 2012 hours are Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., closed Fridays, weekends and holidays. If you have any questions, contact Carmack at 435-613-5241 or by email at

USU Eastern goes Hawaiian with the Spirit of Aloha
Shadayah Jones
staff writer

“Aloha” means hello and goodbye in the Hawaiian culture, but there is a deeper meaning to the greeting. “Akahai,” meaning kindness, to be expressed with tenderness; “L okahi,” meaning unity, to be expressed with harmony;” Oluolu,” meaning agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness; “ H aahaa,” meaning humility, to be expressed with modesty; “Ahonui,” meaning patience, to be expressed with perseverance. “Aloha” is more than a word of greeting or farewell or a salutation. “Aloha” means mutual regard and affection and extends warmth in caring with no obligation in return. “Aloha”

is the essence of relationships in which each person is important to every other person for collective existence. “Aloha” means to hear what is not said, to see what cannot be seen and to know the unknowable. This year at USU Eastern, the students, staff, and faculty will be celebrating the Spirit of Aloha.

When you live the Spirit of Aloha, you create positive feelings and thoughts, which are never gone. They exist in space, multiply and spread over to others. Blaney Hanvey, coordinator-residential life, wants to bring this unconditional love and care for others with the Spirit of Aloha to campus. She came up with this idea while preparing for Catalyst, the student lead-

ership training. She said during Catalyst, they were given the topic of “community building.” Hanvey did more research and realized that this was perfect for the topic of community building. She decided to give out a Spirit of Aloha award. Five Spirit of Aloha awards will be given: one for an outstanding student leader, student, faculty member, staff

member and a community member that has helped campus and made a difference. At the Spirit of Aloha ceremony, plaques will be presented in honor of the award winners to recognize their outstanding efforts and the time and effort they put into making this campus better. Students and faculty and staff members will be able to vote once a semester and nominate one from each category. The residential life staff will review the nominations and decide the winner. The nominations will be online under the residential life link. Deadlines will be announced when the link is set up. Hanvey says, “I want people to see that they are being recognized for their great work and to see that they are making a difference on campus. I want the Spirit of Aloha Award to be something that will be continued throughout the years. I view the Spirit of Aloha as having an unconditional desire to promote the true good of other people in a friendly spirit and with genuine photos by Whitney Withers/ The Eagle caring.”

When asked what had been working in the restaurant one piece of advice he remembered most while growing up, he responded, “If you think it’s too good to be true, it probably is.” Archibald discovered young that he disliked “educated idiots” or the people who thought they knew more than they really did. As an employer, it is a pet peeve when his employees do not take heed to his word. “There was one time we had an employee who would set her drink on the kitchen work table. After several times of telling her not to leave it there, he filled her straw with mustard. We all got a kick out of that one!” said an employee. While at work, Archibald can be found working tirelessly to prepare the next meal while listening to local radio stations. “He believes and supports the shop local campaign in order to sustain our economy here,” says his wife Becky. His favorite artists to listen to when the grills are turned off for the day are Matt Redman and Chris Tomlin. He also enjoys hurrying home to catch the latest episodes of Pawn Stars, Storage Wars and Ice Road Truckers. Although he may never outwardly admit it, he loves the Discovery and History channels as well. Football is not really his Sunday sport, but if the Jazz are playing, you can bet he will be there to catch the game. Guitars, drums and fishing also fill what little free time Archibald has left in his day. Archibald is excited for this upcoming year.

Rather, you can tune all the strings standard tuning. The majority of songs, or open chords, are to whatever note the lowest or sixth string is. You need to know what a fret is and how in this tuning. There are a few ways to achieve standard tuning, and the easiest is to purchase they are numbered on the guitar. It might be a tuner. It doesn’t matter what type or brand confusing, but the fretboard is based on playing because they all work the same. When you an open string.

Football fans can be game changers
sports writer When we read or hear about college football, it’s usually about either the teams, the coaches, the match ups, or who’s going to go to a BCS bowl game, we don’t hear a lot about the fans, there are those rare occasions where you do. For example, the recent event that happened at the Utah vs. BYU game in Salt Lake City. The fans rushed the field and drew a penalty on Utah, which gave BYU another chance to win the game, one of three to be exact. Anyway, the point being, fans can influence a game one way or another. They can influence the team for good or for bad, while also affecting the other team and their performance as well. You know you have an amazing fan section when everyone is yelling and screaming, and the stands shake with a thunder of a crowd just as determined as the players. You know you are in for a good time. Being a player for the opposing team can be a quite intimidating with fans like these. You may not realize it, but as a fan you reflect your school and the spirit that burns within. Having a powerful and huge fan section can definitely affect the outcome of a game. Now there are many different kinds of fans. You have the ones that chant the cheer for a team, but really never wear the colors or watch the games, the ones that sit in their seats and give an occasional whistle or hoot here and there, and then there are fans who bleed their school colors, and go to every home game with painted faces. Utah has some pretty hard-core fans for college sports. I’m going to take three of the colleges and rank them starting from the largest fan base to the smallest. I would have to say that the Utes at the University of Utah take first place, then the Aggies at Utah State University in Logan, and then the Cougars at Brigham Young University. Each of these colleges can surely hold their own in their stadiums with their loyal supportive fans. Now, we will go over a little bit about each school’s fan base, and what sets them aside from other colleges. At Utah, their student section known as the MUSS (Mighty Utah Student Section) really amplifies the cheering in the stadium. The fans love to kick things off early in Salt Lake with the Ute tailgate party, and the Ute walk before the game. In Logan, their stadium holds 25,513 and they always deliver a huge amount of fans, they all seem to always chant in unison and throw signs in the opposing team’s face which creates quite a powerful atmosphere for their team to win. And when I say they deliver a huge amount of fans, their stadium is always packed. Down south at BYU, their stadium holds 63,470 and the fans are sure full of energy and they always have a full-student section supporting their team. All through Provo you will see BYU flags on the cars as they drive by, showing their pride and support. These colleges have a big fan base, but when compared to other teams throughout the country they seem a little small. Let’s start with the Florida Gators. They have a huge fan base, which you can easily see when they pack their stadium known as “The Swamp” with 88,000 strong. Let’s also not forget about Michigan State with their stadium known as “The Big House”. This stadium gets loud when there are games played here. These teams really deliver when there is home games, but when football is such a prominent thing and the stadium holds 80,000 plus, it really isn’t hard to do, unless the team isn’t that good, but most of the time, that isn’t the case.

Getting it together
sports writer   With a 10-8 record, the Lady Eagles are having a strong season so far. The women and Coach Chelsey Wa rbu r ton are pretty pleased and excited with how their season is going.     After the Lady Eagles loss against a highly talented Utah All-Stars team on Sept 21, the women bounced back with two

big wins. Three sets to zero in both of those wins. The team held a 6-0 set ratio in the past week against the Salt Lake All-Stars and the Colorado Northwestern Community College women.     The Salt Lake All-Stars is a team made up of fellow Eastern Utah players. On Sept. 21, the All-Stars showed up ready to face off against the 2012 Lady Eagles. The battle began with the Lady Eagles winning set one 26-24. They battled back and forth the entire match. The Lady Eagles played tougher than ever showing great moments in all aspects of the game, winning all three sets. Set two and three were both close, but the women came out of set two 25-20 and set three 27-25.     Day two of the weekend for the Eagles was traveling to Rangley, Colo.  After a long bus ride, the women thought they would be

tired and not ready right off the bus. Nerves were coming as this game was the first conference game of the year for the women. They came out and showed their hard work off. The Lady Eagles tore Rangley apart winning the first three sets out of five. The women won set one 25-9, set two 25-14 and set three 25-10.   Coach Warburton was feeling “really happy and pleased with her teams play in these past two games.” The women felt confident coming out of the weekend and said they love the feeling they have had these past couple of games, and plan to keep this streak going. On Friday, Sept. 28, the Eagles traveled to Snow College to play the lady Badgers. The women felt really strong and healthy after their last two games. Getting off of the bus, the women had

brought the intensity and mindset of the previous week’s outcomes. The Eagles played their style of game and had a good fight, but ended up losing in five sets: won 27-25, lost 25-15, won 25-23, and lost 25-20 and 15-9. Each set went back and forth all day.     On Saturday, Sept. 29, the Eagles traveled to Salt Lake Community College and hoped for a better outcome to their goals. SLCC, however, had a different game plan and came out victorious. The Bruins came out strong and took the Lady Eagles down in set one. The Eagles stepped up their game, but could not match up to their competitions. The match went quick as the Eagles lost three sets to zero. The Bruins won 25-15, 25-8 and 25-14.     Coach Warburton feels like, “her women came out flat on Saturday against SLCC; adding we did not

have much battle or intensity, and our passing was not exactly on like it was against the Badgers.”     Warburton said she is, “really pleased with how well Whitney Fieldsted has been playing day in and day out; she is a leader on and off the court and the women look up to her a lot.” Fieldsted had herself a hay day against CNCC, having 12 kills. CNCC had no answer for how to slow down Fieldsted’s game.     Listening to some of the women on the team, they feel like they cherished their achievements from the past wins too long, and did not have the right mindset or intensity for the games to come. Sydney Cornforth, a freshman, says, “I know the girls have a lot more in them and that they are all going to step it up and make this a memorable year for the volleyball teams to come in the future.”

5,000 miles, an ocean away from home
sports writer Almost 5,000 miles to attend college away from home seems like a great distance, but for three baseball players from Samoa, it proved to be a wise move. Ieti Savelio plays the outfield for the Golden Eagle baseball team and likes to spend his free time cutting hair or anything that involves using his hands. Isaia Helg plays third base for USU Eastern. He has a great sense of humor and can always make the team laugh. Fred Thomas, the youngest of the three, grew up in Fiji, an island near Samoa. Coming to the United States to play baseball, Savelio said, “So far I have really enjoyed all of the beautiful girls and all of the things to do here. I like being able to stay busy with the activities that the school has put on. I also enjoy the clothing style here, there are so many choices compared to back in

schooling here is also a big part of why I stayed. It is hard to get this good of an education back home so this is a really great opportunity for me,” Savelio says, “I really miss all of the beaches in Samoa. At home, I’m only 45 minutes from the beach anywhere I go so that is a weird thing not to have close. The weather in Samoa is also different; it is always perfectly sunny and not so dry. I do miss my family; it’s tough not to be able to see them all the time. I wish they were still only five minutes away. It’s a lot easier to get around Samoa too, in a car you’re only an hour from the other side photo courtesy Savannah Hrenchir /The Eagle (L-R) Ieti Savelio, Isaia Helg, Fred Thomas of the island so travel is extremely easy.” “My sarcasm has been the biggest change in other people, everyone in Samoa Samoa. All of the people here are also very nice and I enjoy is really sarcastic and I didn’t know if it talking to everyone from all these different backgrounds.” Savelio said, “the first place we stayed was in St. George would be the same way here. The first few weeks I was pretty and it was way too hot. I had a lot of trouble breathing because scared to joke with anyone. I didn’t know if they would take it serious and be mad or just joke around like back home. of the elevation change and suffered many nosebleeds.” Helg spoke about what brought himself and his team- Once a few people started joking around I figured out that mates to America. “I started playing on the I can be sarcastic and no one would be angry. It helps me Samoan national baseball team and we played feel welcome when I can joke around with everyone and be in St. George during the summer. I really myself,” Helg said. Helg, Thomas and Savelio are excited about what USU liked baseball here because the games are more competitive and we play much more. A Eastern has to offer them and the rest of their time here in regular season in Samoa is only eight games the states. You will be able to see them at any baseball game and then you’re done, so I also enjoy that. The in the upcoming season.

standard tuning unless the sixth string is tuned to an E. This method is great if you’re just jamming alone, but tuning the guitar is all relative to what you are playing. For instance, if you are rehearsing with a group or jamming to an album, you should be pitched to the correct notes(6-E, 5-A, 4-G etc.) and tuned to the other players or what you’re listening to. The other advantage is it will train your ears on a different level. Being able to hear and match pitches and frequencies will help your overall musical ability.

They know how to play together and stick together.” Freshman Kyle Durbin shares Madsen’s enthusiasm stating, “I’m super excited! Playing with new friend Luke Madsen is going to be awesome.

Here to build a winning team
sports writer Every school year begins with new faces, some who are here to further their education, and some who are here to help students along the way. This week we are going to take a look into the life of one of those new faces on campus and learn a little more about what he is doing here. The Eagle’s spotlight shines on men’s assistant basketball coach Carter Roe. He was brought in by head Coach Adjalma Vanderlei Becheli Jr, (Vando)  this year to build a winning team.

Hayden Peterson

The basketball players enjoy having Roe around because he cares for them not only as his athletes but also as people. “He is always reminding us of upcoming assignments in our classes as well as encouraging us to be better students,” said Travon Langston. Roe grew up in Arizona; he was born in Phoenix on New Year’s day in 1982. His mom, Beth, and his father, Jim, both worked while he was growing up so that they could provide for his family.  He said of his mother, “She is the GREATEST woman I have known, the definition of grace.” Roe has three siblings as well, his older sister Jordan, his younger sister Chandler, and a younger brother named Taylor, all of whom are successful. Probably being a little humble Roe mentioned, “To say I am the dummy of the family would be an understatement.” When he turned 11, his family followed his father’s work to Yuma, Ari.

Basketball was always the center of Roe’s life. The guys that he played with are still his closest friends and he cherishes many memories with them. After graduating high school Roe went on to study at Arizona Western College, it was there that he began his college education and ended his basketball dreams. “Basketball ended because I quit on myself, which is something I regret every single day of my life. Part of coaching for me is trying to make sure the kids I have a chance to influence never do what I did.” Roe has held many coaching jobs since graduating from NAU. He started at McCook Community College, where he also taught a few courses. Then he was offered what he called a dream job: a coaching position at Arizona Western, in his hometown of Yuma. Thanks to Coach Kelly Green, (the first coach who Roe worked with) we were able to land Coach Roe at USU Eastern. Roe said

that he’d be mistaken if he didn’t mention he was a Christian man, who falls short most days, but is trying to be better and more Christ-like each and every day.”    He is caring and always concerned about others before himself. Good luck Coach Roe. W e l o o k forward to watching your men perform on the court this year.

Nowadays though, you don’t even have to go to the game to be an avid fan. With today’s technology, you can watch the game crystal clear on the 72-inch plasma screen TV, and to top it off, you can now watch the games on the go

with your smart phone. With the ESPN College Football app, you can track any college football team and even see video highlights of the play with just the touch of the screen. To take it to the next level, there is also an app by ESPN called Watch ESPN, where you can watch live-streaming videos of multiple ESPN channels. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, you will always be able to check

on the score of your favorite team, and even watch the game. Whatever kind of fan you may be, always remember that if you cheer loud enough, or even rush the field, you could change the outcome of the game. Just make sure that the game is over before you go rushing. I have to remember that piece of advice when I rush the field again, at the end of the BYU vs. Utah football game!
