On Oct. 28, Michelle Fleck’s physical geology lab students toured Capitol Reef National Park as one of their field trips. The day was spent hiking through the Capitol Gorge slot canyon and to Hickman Bridge. Students had the opportunity to see examples of several geologic features they had studied in class, including lava flows, the effects of erosion, rocks which have been folded by tectonic forces, the formation of sandstone cliffs and bridges and stream features such as incised meanders and slot canyons.

Utah State University’s Dining Services has a new manager, Emily Bradley, 42, who accepted the position on Oct. 1, and besides being the coordinator of campus events, Bradley also takes care of everything food-related on campus. For those students that eat in the cafeteria, they already noticed changes made by Bradley, which includes opening the side door of the cafeteria, giving it a bigger and open look. Also, the students can check the menu for the entire week instead of finding out what would be served on the same day.

eing a local, I have had 20 years to explore and find the best places to visit in and around Carbon County. One of the best places to visit, and an ultimate must-see, is Helper’s Mining and Railroad Museum, located on Helper Main Street, in Helper, Utah. The three-story building commemorates the interesting history of Helper, Utah. Jason Huntzinger, USU Eastern’s’ photography professor, is the director. He strives to use the museum’s photographic archives to tell the stories of this area’s history.

My father told me to go all the way through my dreams. “There is no place for cowards,” he said in his deep and serene voice, “no place for those who do not dare to chase their happiness.” Despite his simple appearance and quiet personality, his posture would show a profound and strong individual, whose notion of life had been tested quite a few times. His death in 2013 was a turning point for my family. It felt as if our core was gone. Being a 55-year-old father, he promised on my birth he would live until I turned 18. He did, by three extra months to be precise.
