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.

staff writers There is a disturbing trend emerging on campus. We are concerned that too many students are apathetic towards important issues in the realm of politics. Many people do not even know how their views match up to mainstream political groups and parties. We decided to address this issue because we were weary of being met with a blank stare when asking somebody if they were a conservative or liberal. This article is written without political bias for the sole purpose of enlightening our peers about the two major trends in political thought, conservatism and liberalism.

It was with some disgust and great dismay that I painfully observed from a distance the patriotic spirit demonstrated two weeks ago at the candlelight vigil. The flames being passed around to honor the victims of Sept. 11, 2001, could have been put to a more appropriate use afterward by burning the flags posted around the pit.

The State of Utah argues that Parker should receive the chemotherapy that can potentially save his life. The parents fear that chemotherapy will stunt their child's growth and leave him sterile.

The college life is awesome. It's filled with friends, parties, late nights, and activities so numerous that it's hard to keep track of everything. Then there is the dating aspect of college that definitely can't be overlooked. Most of the dating is somewhat casual and it's not too difficult to go on three or four dates in a week with just as many different people. The idea of commitment doesn't even occupy space in the furthest recesses of the mind and doesn't seem like it will for years to come.
