It's the last issue of the year. Since both of us are on CEU's extended-study plan, we have no reason to write our last will and testament like the sophomores that are leaving. Long Overdue Some time ago we received a request from an alert reader to start highlighting the positive aspects of CEU. Apparently some parents would like to feel good about sending their students to one of the least expensive colleges in a state that refuses to fund higher education at an adequate level.

Dear Editor, I would like to bid farewell to the wonderful College of Eastern Utah. CEU has shaped me and has done so much for me. I would like to let you all know what a privilege it has been to come to CEU and serve you. I have spent the last 2 years of my life here and I would not change any of it for anything. I have learned how to love, live and just be me.

In an earlier article, I mentioned what an impression my third grade teacher made on my life, I think of sweet, old Mrs. McMahan, my little Dutch lady very often, and her kindness she showed me for the few years that I knew her. She wasn't only the best teacher that I ever had, but she was also one of my best friends.

The Eagle has undergone unwarranted criticism from one of our own editorial writers. His assumptions arise from the overall domineering attitude we hold towards the rest of the student body and the subjects we critique.

Dear Editor: In response to Jeff Spear's article about "Unfair Parking." I just can't let that one go. First off, CEU is a business. It is a non-profit business and the students are our customers. But most of the clientele that go to Cosmetology for haircuts are older ladies and gentleman. The ladies come once a week to get their hair done. For most of them they look forward to that all week. Most of these ladies are in their 70s and 80s. Do you really want to see them walk across campus to get their hair done?

Dear Editor, As a three-year student and member of ASCEU, I am truly perplexed at the attitude some administration have taken to not support students on this campus. Two recent cases in point: the student fee allocation committee voted to reduce the student's share of the Burtenshaw bond fee from $28 to $25. Remember every student who pays fees at CEU, pays for the Burtenshaw bond fee. There are 17 suites with three rooms per suite. It also is the home of the director of residential life.

I saw my psychiatrist this week. I did not really have a problem with seeing him, but I was sort of upset that I had to talk to him. The insistence of my family, friends and coworkers is hard to ignore. They called it an "intervention," which, (I guess), means that I really did not have much of a say in the matter.

This season is going by too fast and there is so much to do. We both had a lot to do this week and somehow managed to do it all Monday. Naturally, we had time to spend our afternoon walking around looking for things to put in this column rather than get caught up on anything. Gold. April Fools a day early

There is a war going on. It shames the war on terror. It belittles the Vietnam war. It overshadows both of the World Wars. Not only has this war reached the soil of the United States, but it has reached the soil of her brother and sister nations, be they friend or foe. It is the war against the creative mind.

Happy Birthday! We'd like to give a shout out to Jonas Harmon. Yesterday Jonas turned 23. One of the original writers of Say What, Jonas attends USU. We wish him well. Our own soap opera Not that anyone out there cares, but there's something we'd like to make perfectly clear to members of The Eagle staff: if you write something that people don't like, expect others to rip you to pieces. Expect criticism.
