Eighteen months ago I knew exactly what I wanted to do, who I wanted to be. I worked hard in my career, provided a valuable service and did my job well. I had no intention to deviate from the path I was on until in August 2015 that all changed when a letter came in the mail from a small private university law school offering me an opportunity to advance science in a way I knew was needed, but had no idea was possible. Without the assistance of a law adviser or any guidance whatsoever, I embarked down this strange and time- consuming path towards a law degree.

With the Inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States just days away, we should take a moment to know who Trump is putting into some of the most powerful positions in the U.S. government. Many of these picks have already sparked controversy, and for good reasoning, seeing as they may destroy the progress made under the Obama administration the last few years.

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!)
