verything you need to know
Ruth Yi takes it one day at a time, just as she always has. While she has only been running Cottage Market on 16th Avenue and Hilyard Street for about three years, her fiercely loyal customers and overwhelming popularity in Eugene may lead one to believe she has been there for decades. Yi said she has “led a very simple life,” but that is only because she has lived a life of transition that has forced her to appreciate the simple things. Born in South Korea in 1945, Yi’s family lived comfortably until they returned home one day to find their house razed to ashes. Though the Korean War brought a great deal of instability for them, it did not mar Yi’s childhood entirely and, in a way, changed her perspective for the better. “At that time, Korea was a fairly poor country,” Yi said. “But we didn’t feel much of that. We were fed well, we were happy in the church and going to school, getting good grades — what else do you need when you’re young?” Yi attended the University of Guelph in Canada because her husband had a connection there, and the classes she took helped her learn English, which would go on to fare well for her when she moved to California in 1968. She arrived a month before her husband, so she said she sent him a postcard with a picture of Palisades Park in Santa Monica and a Pacific Ocean backdrop, which she described as “the most spectacular scene in L.A.” Five years later, she and her husband bought a cafeteria on the second floor of General Telephone Electric, where their window overlooked the exact same visual from the postcard. “Isn’t that amazing?” she said. “I say this story to everybody [who] comes to our house for dinner.” Despite starting with zero cooking experience, Yi and her husband operated the cafeteria for 13 years. Her customers, employees of the telephone company,
taught her recipes. “It was a family, they were so good to us,” Yi said. “They would come and tell me, ‘Ruth, did you know Californians like Mexican food?’ And they would tell me, ‘Let’s do the taco salad this week,’ and they would tell me the recipe.” “Relationship is always tradeoff,” Yi said. “You’re nice to them, they will be nice to you, right? I think it’s most crucial thing in any workplace.” Yi carried this sentiment with her after she lost her business and moved to Eugene in 1986. For 18 years, she worked at a dry cleaners, which she said she largely looks back on fondly. What came next, though, still baffles her to this day. Four years ago, Cottage Market, now known informally among students as “Ruth’s,” was nothing but a garage attached to a fixer-upper. A friend offered Yi and her husband the house to rent out for profit, but once the competitive market began to hinder their business, the city allowed them to operate a store out of the garage. Yi considered the opportunity a gift from the city, so she agreed to open the market. Now, she said she views the fact that she has one of the busiest stores near campus as a gift from God. “It’s unbelievable how kids support me. I’m not the only store here,” Yi said. Many of Yi’s customers are UO students, and they adore her. “She’s pretty much the sweetest woman around,” said one of her customers, Jake MacVicar. “Everybody has no choice but to love her. I feel like everybody does in this city, especially all the students. One regular, Jamie Peterson, described Yi as “one of the nicest people in Eugene.” “She’s an amazing person,” Peterson said. “She knows my major. She knows the fact that I’m going to be a teacher. She literally just asked me if it was my last term, if I was gonna graduate soon. She asked me if I was staying here.” Michelle Villa said Yi sang “Happy Birthday” to her when she visited the market on her birthday. “It was pretty
great,” she said. “She’s always been very sweet.” Some have even taken to social media to declare their appreciation for Yi. She struggles to make sense of the outpouring of support from her customers, and the only explanation she can think of is “God’s grace.” “I’m not the sweetest person in America,” she said. “I’m just old lady with my accent. But when I see them, I feel like they’re my grandkids, you know? They’re so sweet.” “I brag to everybody: I’ve never seen one rude person here,” she said. “They make my day, so they make my job.” Like all her previous jobs, Yi takes the time to get to know her customers on a personal level. Some students even bring their parents to the store when they are in town so they can meet her. Yi recalled one student who felt comfortable enough to discuss a tough breakup he was dealing with. “We had relationship already, he was not stranger,” Yi said, “and I liked them coming in together. So I used to talk with them, chat with them. That openness — we had the feeling already.” It has become increasingly difficult for Yi to take care of the store with her husband not being able to contribute as much at his age, she said. Still, her “attitude of gratitude” has not wavered, and she credits her customers for helping her stay motivated. “It’s my customers who bring all the joy,” she said. “They are amazing, I’m very thankful about that.” Yi may say she has lived a simple life, but simplicity has proven to be a successful recipe for her. She takes an Emergen-C every day for good measure to avoid getting sick, and if she sees a customer cough, she offers them one free of charge. “Once in a while, they just pay the money, but if you pay, you ruin my fun,” she said with a laugh. “Happiness is doing a little extra than you’re supposed to, like giving a little Emergen-C.”

ANTICIPATED ALBUM RELEASES OF DECEMBER BY FRANKIE KERNER Illustration of Camila Cabello by Christina Staprans.
As the end of the year and the decade comes to a close, many are looking back at the best albums of the past 10 years. With only one month left of the 2010s, the Emerald took a look forward into some of the most anticipated albums of this December. The Free Nationals - The Free Nationals Many know The Free Nationals only as the backing band of Anderson .Paak. You may have seen them performing alongside him in his Tiny Desk Concert for NPR, or perhaps at a live show. Now the time has come for their own album. Including the single, “Shibuya,” which features The Internet’s Syd, the project is sure to be packed with funky, soulful music and a modern twist. According to Consequence of Sound, the record is packed with

M O N D AY, D E C E M B E R 2 , 2 0 1 9
other guest features: Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Daniel Caesar, Kali Uchis, JID and more. Their self-titled debut album will be out on Dec. 13. Camila Cabello - Romance Camila Cabello first started out in Fifth Harmony, the female pop ensemble that ran strong until 2016, when Cabello left the group to start her solo career. In 2018, the singer released her debut album, “Camila.” Since then, she’s gained more traction in the pop world, especially this year with the release of her song “Señorita,” a collaboration with Shawn Mendes. The two artists have gained popularity since then, earning a Grammy nomination for the duet. Next month, Cabello is set to release her sophomore album, “Romance,” a record diving deep into her personal love life over the past few years.
Romance comes out on Dec. 6.
Kanye West - Jesus is Born
Harry Styles - Fine Line
We’ve seen Kanye West’s journey from a shutter shades-wearing, A Tribe Called Quest-loving, early-2000s hip-hop staple to a born-again Christian, premarital sex-denouncing, cultural phenomenon in 2019. Over this past decade, Kanye has had quite the transformation both sonically and personally. This past decade, he’s released seven albums, all with different sounds and impacts. His latest album, “Jesus is King,” was released in October and he’s already back in December with another Jesus-centric project, a gospel album titled “Jesus is Born.” This album was made with the Sunday Service, a gospel group he started that has been traveling together for almost a year. Jesus is Born is set to come out on Dec. 25.
Once one of the five members of the British boy band One Direction, Harry Styles is paving the way for his solo music career. After releasing his self-titled debut album in 2017, he continues to expand his repertoire. Following his Saturday Night Live debut a few weeks ago, where he performed both as the host and musical guest, fans of all ages have the singer on their minds. He has proven that he’s more than his boy band past, and while his music is still pop-heavy, he’s separating himself from how fans used to know him. The sultry music video released last month for his song “Lights Up” shows that he’s grown past his boy band days. “Fine Line” comes out Dec. 13.

TOP NEWS STORIES OF FALL 2019 Protests, new buildings and the EMU bells. Fall term 2019 at the University of Oregon was nothing short of interesting. We saw the Graduate Teaching Fellowship Federation protest for a new contract, the opening of the Lyllye Reynolds-Parker Black Culture Center and Tykeson Hall and we said goodbye to Smith Family Bookstore’s 13th Avenue location. Here’s a look back at the top stories of the term.
GTFF SETTLED A NEW CONTRACT WITH THE UNIVERSITY BY RYAN NGUYEN After nearly a year of bargaining, the Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation and the UO settled on a new three-year contract for its graduate employees. The contract, which includes six weeks of paid parental leave, a bump in salaries for many workers and no increases to health care costs, came after the labor union threatened to strike at the start of week 6 if it and the university could not come to a deal. “I am incredibly proud of what we were able to build over the year of negotiations,” GTFF President Ellen
The “bell” that can be heard from the EMU actually comes from speakers that are mounted on the roof of the building. (Marissa Willke/Emerald)
Gillooly-Kress said to the Emerald when the union announced the results. “I am also very excited to see what we can do next as we have built up an incredible network of people who are now engaged in the union in a way I have never seen in my six years of being involved.” The union represents UO’s 1,400-some graduate employees, graduate students who teach, research and work in university administration in exchange for tuition and fee waivers.

EMU BELLS ARE BACK IN TOWN BY CARRINGTON POWELL
An electric bell system, known as the “Carillon Chimes,” sits on top of the EMU. It has existed in some form since the 1950s and rings on the quarter of the hour, every hour, from dawn until dusk. It can play anything from music to an emergency alert system. But after a survey was posted on the UO subreddit, it was revealed that many people aren’t fans of how frequently the bell rings. Nearly half of
students said it distracts them from their work. The bells are especially disruptive in the LLC residence hall, where one student said that he could hear the chimes through his headphones when he had music on. However, most of the students in the survey still wanted the bell around. All they wanted was for it to ring less than four times an hour, every hour, every day. Workers prepare to strike. (Courtesy of SEIU local 503)
SEIU CAME CLOSE TO STRIKING BY RYAN NGUYEN AND GINA SCALPONE In September, classified employees at Oregon’s seven public universities also came close to striking. Negotiations had stalled for months between the schools and the labor union representing their classified employees, Service Employees International Union Local 503. The 4,500-member union planned to begin striking Sept. 30, the day before classes began at UO and some other Oregon colleges.

But the strike was averted days before its potential start when SEIU and the universities were able to come to an agreement. Classified employees include workers in food preparation, maintenance, custodial services and information technology, among other areas. The new contract includes increases to salaries and paid leave due to weather-related closures.
TYKESON HALL OPENS BY BRUNO CROLLA Tykeson Hall opened at the beginning of the fall term. The newest College of Arts and Sciences advising building on campus introduced an experimental style of advising using “flight paths.” These paths act as a way to consolidate similar majors in an attempt to help students who are not settled on one major yet. This building has been in the making since 2014 when Willie and Donald Tykeson made a $10 million donation to UO. They eventually held a ceremonial groundbreaking in fall 2017. According to the Tykeson website, the academic structure of Tykeson (its classrooms, advising models and career center) is the first of its kind in the country.

“One of the new things that’s very innovative for CAS students is this integrative model where you have academic advising happening while career advising is threaded through it. So when you’re thinking about these majors and programs, students are able to talk about careers and leading them to what those experiences are and advising,” Kimberly Johnson, vice provost of advising said of Tykeson Hall. Students seeking to explore career options, integrated academic and career advising, or who are just looking for guidance toward the right major can now find all of this in Tykeson Hall.

SMITH FAMILY BOOKSTORE CLOSES BY DONNY MORRISON In October, the Smith Family Bookstore announced that it would be closing the doors on its UO campus location after 45 years in business. It was the laststanding used bookstore near campus. For a long time, Smith Family was the closest and cheapest option for used textbooks. However, with textbook sales

moving online and a renovation happening at their second location on Willamette, it was time for Smith Family to close up shop near UO. We heard from second-generational owner Evon Smith about what the bookstore meant to campus in the ‘80s and what to expect from the expansion on Willamette street.
LYLLYE REYNOLDS-PARKER BLACK CULTURAL CENTER OPENS BY C. FRANCIS O’LEARY UO held a grand opening for the Lyllye Reynolds-Parker Black Cultural Center on Oct. 12. Speeches by ReynoldsParker, a former advisor at UO and the first Black person born at Eugene’s Sacred Heart Hospital, UO VP of Equity and Inclusion Professor Alex-Assensoh and members of the Black Student Task Force who initially demanded the construction of a Black Cultural Center on campus marked the event. The BSTF issued a list of demands to UO administration in 2015 in order to foster a more welcoming environment for Black students. UO President Michael Schill announced the construction of the building in 2017 and broke ground on the project in 2018. After considering more than 20 people for the honor,
a committee of students, faculty and staff chose Lyllye Reynolds-Parker as the namesake of the cultural center. The BCC is the first building on campus named for a Black woman, and Reynolds-Parker was chosen for her 17 years of work at UO and continued commitment to the Eugene community today. The Lyllye Reynolds-Parker Black Cultural Center is now home to a resource library where students can watch movies and check out books by Black authors and about Black culture; an art gallery; a conference room for student organizations and office space. In her speech during the BCC opening, Reynolds-Parker quoted her father: “‘Give people their flowers while they’re alive.’ Well, I’m smelling my roses today!” Colorful Nike shoes greet guests at the front desk of the Graduate Eugene.

GRADUATE HOTEL COMES TO EUGENE BY CARRINGTON POWELL The Graduate Eugene hotel opened up over the summer. The Graduate line of hotels brand themselves on being decorated completely in the style of the college and town that they set up in. Eugene’s Graduate Hotel is no different. The first thing seen when walking into the hotel is a custom-made Oregon Duck toy on wheels. The reception desk is a
glass case filled with vintage Nike shoes. Art from local artists decorates the hallways. Every small decoration in the room has meaning. The lamps are formed into statues of the goddess Nike, there are pictures of Otis Day on the wall and ducks on the bathroom wallpaper. It’s a micro version of Eugene that sits in the center of the city.
ULTRA-HIGH-SPEED RAILWAY TO COME TO OREGON BY JACK FORREST Leaders in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia, Canada are planning to connect the Pacific Northwest megaregion “Cascadia” using an ultra-high-speed railway. The new mode of transportation is currently planned to run from Portland, Oregon; to Seattle, Washington; to Vancouver, British Columbia, with each stretch taking around an hour. Eugene was originally part of the railway plan and would have acted as the southernmost station for the Cascadia high-speed railway. The proposed route for the train would have placed tracks following or crossing over Interstate 5,
according to Cascadia High-Speed Rail LLC. According to a business case published in July 2019 by the Washington State Department of Transportation, the project would generate an increase in gross domestic product 12 times that of the construction costs for the project. The railway initiative would also stimulate job growth with as many as 160,000 jobs being created by connecting the megaregion and another 30,000 directly from the construction of the project. These data sets are only for Washington and similar growth is expected in Oregon.

GRADUATE SCHOOL ISN’T THE NEXT STEP FOR EVERYONE BY CAMRYN PRIVETTE
As seniors approach the end of their undergraduate careers, plans for the future are made. For some, that means moving back home, moving to a new city or starting a new job. For others, an undergraduate degree is just the beginning of their education journey with graduate school looming in the background. But how do you know that grad school is the right path for you? First, you need to ask yourself: Does your career require graduate school or is it a cushion between you and the real world? If you want to work in law, medicine or academia, obtaining an advanced degree is a crucial step in your career path. Going to graduate school makes sense for those individuals, but others

often see graduate school as a resume booster or something to do after getting a bachelor’s degree. Graduate school isn’t a place to explore different areas of interest and switch programs until you find the right one. It’s expensive, costing upwards of $30-40K per year depending on the field, according to a June 2017 study done by the think tank the Urban Institute. The cost of graduate school varies depending on the university and the master’s program itself. But what’s the point in putting yourself in financial limbo for years to come if a graduate program isn’t a necessity? Compare how much money it costs to go back to school with how much you will profit in your field from this additional
degree. Investing too much money into your education could have more consequences than you think. Sometimes work experiences says more to future employers than the degrees you possess. Someone who has had real-life experiences in a specific career field could be more qualified for the job than someone who has just studied it. A graduate degree does not guarantee employment, and just like with any other application process, it is crucial to be a well-rounded applicant. Going to graduate school because you cannot find employment also isn’t a smart idea. We saw this happen during the Great Recession in 2008 when jobs were scarce and masses returned to education programs in
hopes of gaining future employment. For example, the New York Times reports that there was a 20% increase in the number of people taking the LSAT in October 2009 compared with October 2008. While it is impossible to tell, it makes you wonder how many people truly wanted to study law versus the people who saw law as a financially stable career path. While graduate school can add a lot to your resume, it isn’t for everyone. It’s for those who have a passion for their specific field and truly need it to advance in their career. It’s not for those who have anxiety about what to do post-graduation. Don’t use graduate school as a next step if you don’t have to, because sooner rather than later, it will catch up with you.
DUCKS GRINDS OUT
A CIVIL WAR WIN

BY OSCAR DUYCK The Ducks won the 123rd edition of the Civil War 24-10 on a frigid Saturday afternoon this weekend. Far from pretty, Oregon relied on its defense and special teams to carry it to its 10th win of the season. This year’s Civil War had a lot on the line — Oregon State needed just one more win to earn its first bowl game spot since 2013. “They just talk so much trash,” defensive back Jevon Holland said. “I don’t like how they talk so much trash and then lose.” After three quiet quarters, a series of wild plays in the fourth woke up Autzen Stadium. A fourth-quarter drive by the Beavers led to a powerful 19-yard touchdown run by Jermar Jefferson to cut the Ducks’ lead to seven. Later in the fourth, a Jaylon Redd touchdown was overturned because he lost control of the ball in the end zone, resulting in a turnover. The call elicited a chorus of boos from the Autzen faithful, but Redd had dropped the ball long before it hit the pylon. The Beavers got the ball with the momentum in their favor; however, their chance to tie the game was upended when Thomas Graham Jr. made a critical tackle on fourth and 5. Graham came up clutch again in the last minutes of the fourth quarter, when a streaking Jermar Jefferson
tried to hurdle Graham, only to lose the ball. It was scooped up Brady Breeze, all but icing the game. “It just felt amazing,” Graham said. “The best feeling was just how close I am to most of the seniors.” Oregon’s offense sputtered all game. Herbert overthrew open receivers and the Ducks were 3-14 on third down. The Ducks were held virtually scoreless for the entire second half, with the exception of a late touchdown run by Cyrus Habibi-Likio with a minute remaining when the game was all but decided. “Not up to our standard,” head coach Mario Cristobal said. “We got to get back to work and get better.” Special teams were a bright spot for the Ducks. With the exception of a missed field goal by Camden Lewis, Oregon’s kicking game pinned the Beavers deep in their own territory on numerous occasions. The highlight play of the game was Mykael Wright’s 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Wright torched the Beavers, earning his second kickoff return touchdown of the season. His score was especially important, considering how much trouble Oregon had scoring the ball. His electrifying returns brought back memories of one of the great Oregon return men of all time, De’Anthony Thomas. “I loved De’Anthony Thomas and this is what he
did,” Wright said. “Being able to do this is really a blessing.” Saturday was also the final game for the senior class. Justin Herbert and Troy Dye are some of the most notable departures from the program. They struggled in their first season together, finishing 4-8 and losing the Civil War. But now as seniors, they’re 10-2 and poised for a trip to the Rose Bowl with a win on Friday. The Ducks now face the toughest test ahead of them this season when they take on the winner of the Pac-12 South next week in the conference championship game. “They have a 10-win season, won the North and now they have a chance to play a great team in the Pac-12 Champioship,” Cristobal said. “That’s what your goal is when you go to a program.”
