Reaching for redemption: Spartans Volleyball ranks sixth
10/18/2018 8:31am

By Julia Wheelerman This week marks the third week that the womens volleyball team has had a spot on the American Volleyball Coaches Association AVCA Division II coaches poll and they are currently ranked eighth. This is almost kind of a redemption year for us, sophomore Katie McKiel said. Last year, the Spartans fell out of the AVCA ranking within the first week for the first time in over two decades. In 2014, the womens volleyball team had a 13-1 start to the season and finished with 34-1, making them national champions. This year, theyre hoping to imitate that past winning streak. We had a rough start to last season with injuries and we were three wins-10 losses at one point, McKiel acknowledged. We felt like we didnt play to the level we were capable of. Currently, the womens volleyball has a .281 hitting percentage, 13.61 assists per set, and 14.46 kills per set, putting them at the top of the SSC schools. McKiel herself leads the team with 256 kills and a .256 kill percentage alongside fellow sophomore Sorrel Houghton. Im looking forward to playing the regional crossover next weekend to play new teams and to play ...

10/18/2018 8:00am

by Sydney Rhodes This summer, mail services relocated to portable buildings, while the Riverside Center on UTs campus has been undergoing drastic renovations. On Monday, Oct. 8, mail services moved back into the Riverside Center and opened the new mailroom for students to access and receive their mail and packages. Mail services has made some significant changes to their newest office, including a new locker system where students can retrieve recent packages. The lockers feature a kiosk station where students can enter an eight-digit code that opens the locker box. The locker location and code are sent in a notification email that also informs students when a package has been received. We have received a lot of student comments on the locker system, and they have been very positive, said mail services supervisor Kathy Fryer. Using the lockers will have a huge impact on students who have had to wait in long lines trying to claim their items. Eight hundred and 27 lockers have been added to the new post office as well as a new customer services counter, where students will be assisted by a mail clerk who can obtain first class mail and large packages with a ...

Living in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael
10/18/2018 8:00am

by Gabriela Mendez On Oct. 10, Hurricane Michael made landfall in Floridas panhandle and caused extensive damage. According to multiple news outlets such as CNN, this hurricane has been declared as the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S. in over 50 years. The arrival of Hurricane Michael caused disorder in Floridas panhandle, since it rapidly developed from a tropical storm into a category 4 hurricane. Yet, no one expected the destruction to be this catastrophic. Mr. Brunson, a resident of Florida, stated in Far from shattered coast, Michael Packed an Unexpected Punch an article for The New York Times, how no one affected by the hurricane expected for the destruction of Michael to be so severe. CBS has reported that more than 900,000 homes and business in Florida, Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas are without power. The destruction caused by Hurricane Michael was so devastating that there are places residents cannot return to. In Bay County, Florida, federal officials have been clearing out debris and other damage caused by the storm to allow residents to return. Its still not safe to return, particularly to Bay County, Florida, stated Bronck Long, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency ...

Zero waste movement draws attention from millions of people
10/18/2018 8:00am

byArden Igleheart Graciela Vidals coworkers knew she was a bit of a tree-hugger. Last Wednesday, they learned on the news she was more than that. My story from Fox 13 aired on the news while I was at work, Vidal said. And a lot of people I work with knew that I was vegan and I was all about the environment but I guess they didnt realize how far I go on a daily basis. When they saw my story, they were like You really do all that Vidal, 37, lives a Zero Waste lifestyle. This means she tries to produce no trash in her daily life. Each month, all of her and her sons trash can fit in a large mason jar. Vidal makes her own deodorant, toothpaste, face toner and house-cleaning products to avoid buying them in plastic packaging. At the grocery store, she fills her own containers in the bulk section and buys almost exclusively unpackaged produce. They just looked at me like I was some alien or something, Vidal said. Zero Waste is an internet sensation. A search for zerowaste on Instagram returns almost 1.5 million posts. Bea Johnson, author of Zero Waste Home, has over ...
