Green Bay Packers pleased with draft results, look forward to upcoming season

Welcome to Wisconsin. Land of the Packer fans. Although we are a border town, you’re still in Packer territory. Even though the stores here cater to both, don’t confuse where you are. You are still in Wisconsin after all. I have to admit I don’t know much about the sports world, and I don’t have […]

New immigration law passed in Arizona promotes intolerance

Police officers in Arizona are now allowed to stop citizens they have “reasonable suspicion” may be an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States.” Wasn’t this one of the qualities we despised in communist states such as the Soviet Union, East Germany and apartheid-era South Africa? In retaliation to this new immigration law, […]

‘National Day of Prayer’ in violation of religious freedom

I congratulate District Judge Crabb for declaring the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional. You, ma’am, have taken another step towards true religious freedom in the United States. Our government needs a purely secular backdrop to operate. Judge Crabb ruled on March 1st 2010 that the National Day of Prayer was unconsitutional because it is “an […]

Traditions, tips for college studentsʼ most popular recreational lawn games, sports

Aside from frisbee golf (frolfing?) and broomball, bean bags have to be the biggest summer time hit for the college age recreational athlete. While frisbee golf is often regarded as the pastime of hippy-like college students, the bean bag spans the spectrum. Everyone plays it, but few are good at it. This game, known as […]

Rainy day activities keep students occupied inside

The rainy season seems to be upon us, and with it a desperate need for distraction. Almost as bad as being trapped in during the winter, but with the hope of sunnier days. Rainy days are a peaceful time spent inside in which we have the opportunity to do a list of interesting things. Here […]

Sarah Palin’s actions have similarities to McCarthyism

Sarah Palin incites violence against healthcare proponents. And she’s doing it with avid listeners. Who are the people that can believe the hateful things she says on an almost daily basis? The woman who failed to name a newspaper she read or a Supreme Court ruling she agreed with during her campaign? Consistently, this model […]

Columnist offers numerous suggestions for improvement around UW-River Falls

Not everyone looks like you. Not everyone believes what you do. Not everyone wants the same things that you want. Basic concepts and yet they seem to escape the grasp of the University’s programming. With last semester’s demonstration of the campus’ surviving problem of racism, I would hope the University would have stepped up to […]

Professors should not place great emphasis on technology

Since the first professor brought a VHS into the classroom, technology has created both passageways and barriers. As one of my parting gifts (this being my last semester), I give you a list of how technology has harmed me while in college. My professors don’t know how to use D2L. This has got to be […]

Holidays such as Mardi Gras celebrate life, people

Somewhere deep in the human nature struggling against the urge to be unique is a dark urge to be unknown. Once a year the human conscience needs release. This submerged drive is the root of masquerades, masked holidays, Mardi Gras, Carnival and Purim. To be masked is to be unrecognizable, and to be unrecognizable is […]

‘Fake News’ yields more influence than actual news

We don’t read newspapers, we don’t watch the news, and the radio isn’t our fount of current events. So where does our generation get its news? Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart. So what happened to make Comedy Central the source of daily news and world events for the twenty-something generation? I mean for a show that […]

UW-River Falls needs an underground music scene

For as long as I’ve been here, I haven’t seen a single inch of an underground music scene. This surprises me a little. River Falls is a college town. Where is the college town spunk? The college town swagger? The college town music? I mean, we can’t strive to to match the workings of Dinkytown’s […]
