A look back at the week in sports

Written by Conner Celli         Let’s first start with looking at how the college football teams in the state of Washington faired. The Washington State Cougars and Washington Huskies entered the weekend as top ten teams, but both suffered losses and fell out of the top ten.         The Cougars were having a lot of success due to the play of Heisman candidate Luke Falk. Unfortunately, Falk may have had the worst game of his college career and the Cougars suffered a very disappointing loss to California by a score of 37-3. The Cougars still have a lot to play […]

Western Cooks: Acorn Flour Cookies

By Rachael Buselmeier   Whenever fall hits, I get into a baking mood. Something about warm spices and being trapped inside by the rain just screams fall to me. As I was walking across campus deciding what to bake, I came across a box of acorns in Miller Hall. The white board next to them said they were great to cook with and free to take. Although I had never tasted an acorn, I do like a challenge almost as much as I like dessert. On the Farmer’s Almanac website, I was able to find some instructions for making acorn flour. […]

Doctober at Pickford – “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World”

By Monique Merrill   In 1958, radio stations temporarily banned Native American musician Link Wray’s song “Rumble” from airplay, worried that the unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll sound might be too much for listeners to handle. It is the only instrumental song ever to be banned, and that was just the beginning of its effect on the industry. “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World” is a documentary that fills in some of popular music’s history with Native American writers and performers. The documentary is named after the pioneering and controversial vocal-free song by Wray, which can be seen in this film […]
