The USU aviation program was set back when its AST300 flight simulator broke down in spring 2012, but thanks the acquisition of a brand new, state-�of-�the-�art

CRJ700 simulator in December, the department is on course again. “It’s taken a long time and it’s been a lot of hard work to get everything going to get the proper funds,� said Simon Paquet, a senior flight instruc-�

tor. “Last spring many of our students didn’t even get to fin-� ish up. Decisions started being made and we were finally able to get the funding set for this new sim.� Even with the proper funding acquired from the university,

Paquet said the department is responsible to pay back the expenses. “Our students pay for every hour that they’re in the simula-� tor,� Paquet said. “Over sev-�

Campus Recreation cuts hours, some student jobs BY LIS STEWART staff writer

Campus Recreation shortened hours at the Fieldhouse, cut lap swim times at the HPER and decreased the number of student employees this semester to prepare for a potential budget cut caused by a drop in USU’s student enrollment. The department’s budget is expected to drop by $10,000-�$30,000, caused in part by the missionary age change announced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-�day Saints in October, according to Kevin Kobe, director of Campus Recreation. “We have to do something,� Kobe said. “We can’t just wait and then hope that we don’t have this drop.� The missionary announcement was a good time to decide how efficiently the programs under Campus Recreation are run, Kobe said. After assess-� ing the number of students who participated and when, it was decided to cut early morning lap swim at the HPER as well as early morning hours at the Fieldhouse, he said. The service desk by the locker rooms will also open later and close earlier. Kobe said the reduction in hours brought about a reduction in employees. The number of student employees before the cut was around 70, not count-�

The Utah State University football team proved itself as one of the best teams in the nation in 2012, but its athletes’ performance off the field earned them a top spot academically. The Aggies earned the ninth-�best academic success ranking, accord-� ing to the New America Foundation’s Education Policy Program’s yearly BCS Academic Bowl rank-� ings. The poll ranks teams with a formula comparing football player graduation rates to the rest of the male population at the univer-� sity, the team’s black-�to-� white male graduation rate to the overall school’s rate and the team’s gradu-� ation rate of black players to the graduation rate of black male students at the school. This season is the first time USU has made the top 25 in the poll’s six years of existence. “I’m proud of our team and their accomplishments in the classroom,� said current head coach Matt Wells. “We are definitely among some elite pro-� grams. The support our student-�athletes receive is second to none, and we will continue to strive to not just maintain, but do better.� Last season’s seniors comprise the first gradu-� ating class recruited by former head coach Gary Andersen, who said aca-� demic success stems from the work and commit-� ment from three different groups: the institution, the assistant coaches and the players. “The players have

UCC helps Hurricane Sandy efforts BY TMERA BRADLEY news senior writer

More than two months after Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast in October 2012, students of USU answered the call for help. Twice. Twelve AmeriCorps mem-� bers from USU arrived in New Jersey on Monday to aid in relief efforts. The crew was the second to be sent by the Utah Conservation Corps to begin service in a variety of capaci-� ties including debris removal, demolition and coordinating volunteers. “It’s an all-�star crew,� said Kate Stephens, program direc-� tor for the UCC. She said the team consists of people who completed a UCC program training and did an excellent job. “We need to have people out there who are pretty self-�

From page 1 ing officials and scorekeepers employed during intramurals. Kobe said while the changes caused contention from com-� munity members who come to the HPER pool for early morning lap swim as well as Campus Recreation employ-� ees, it was important to stay ahead of things to ensure the department does not go in the red.

“First, we have to save money,� Kobe said. “Secondly, we have to minimize the impact on students.� Campus Recreation is one of the divisions of Student Services hit by the budget cut because it is entirely funded by students, Kobe said. Campus Recreation is in charge of commonly used facilities like the Fieldhouse and the HPER pool. The department also runs intramurals, club sports,

the Fun-�Fit-�Forever program, the Outdoor Recreation Program and staffs the desk by the locker rooms in the HPER building. The effects of the sudden loss in student fees to the entire campus won’t be appar-� ent until the end of January, when the final drop deadline solidifies the number of stu-� dents actually enrolled at USU, said James Morales, vice presi-� dent of Student Services.

THE UTAH CONSERVATION CORPS sent a second team to help with disaster relief left by Hurricane Sandy last year. Members of the first team, seen above, survery

“Based on our initial projec-� tions for spring semester, we think we’ll be down about 250 students,� Morales said. The numbers are not nearly as dramatic as university officials initially projected last fall, Morales said. The mis-� sionary age change announced by the LDS church caused a stir on Utah campuses as more students than usual chose to leave college to serve missions. Originally they thought the

university could lose 1,350 stu-� dents to missions this semes-� ter, he said. However, losing 250 stu-� dents would still mean a drop in roughly $112,000 in student fees, Morales said. Now the situation to con-� sider is the long-�term effects of losing students over the course of the next two years, until the first batch of sudden mis-� sionaries returns. Morales said he estimates the university

will lose 1,900 students over the next two years. The uni-� versity is considering ways to compensate for that, including looking for ways to be efficient with student funds. “We don’t know the impact of that yet, so we might as well prepare for it,� Kobe said. – Twitter: @CarpetComm

directed, flexible and can handle the stress of an emergency response situation,� Stephens said. Stephens said about half the members in the group are returning volunteers from the first team who wanted to go back. “It was probably the hardest thing that they had ever done in their lives,� Stephens said. “Really, really tough work, crazy hours, physically demanding, but it was also incred-� ibly rewarding. There was so much gratitude and also individuals who were just so thankful for the help that they were offering.� Tim Spenser was one of the vol-� unteers who went last November. He said his days began with 4 a.m. shifts at the shelters. “There was a lot of running around,� Spenser said. “The best part of it was getting to be in a place

where people from all over the coun-� try come together to be a part of something to serve others.� On-�site supervisor Tim Carroll said this trip will be similar to the previous one, except the shelters they had been working at are now closed because hurricane refugees in the East Coast are returning to their homes. “Most of the operations are going to be focused on gutting people’s homes,� Carroll said. “Basically, demolition will be our main mission this time around.� With the cold weather conditions, the crew will center on getting heat and electricity restored to houses so residents can return to normal liv-� ing conditions. “It just takes time,� Carroll said. “We pretty much have to go one house at a time. It’s just a long pro-� cess.� Carroll said there is still a lot of

work to be done since the last trip to New York and thinks the damage in New Jersey will be a lot more wide-� spread. “It just looked devastating,� Carroll said. “Whole neighborhoods were destroyed.� Spenser said he had never seen hurricane aftermath until he went on the trip. “It was definitely a shock,� Spenser said. He said a lot of build-� ings were affected right down to the foundations. “That was wild to see,� he said. Disaster response is not the UCC’s usual emphasis, Stephens said. The organization is mainly geared toward partnering with land man-� agement agencies and nonprofits. “Utah Conservation Corps is open to students,� Stephens said. “We give priority to students to serve as AmeriCorps members.� Stephens said spring positions are

open beginning the end of February and summer openings starting in May in the American Southwest. “They serve in teams of four and do restoration work — for example, Russian olive removal and revegeta-� tion,� Stephens said. Russian olive is an invasive plant species, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture website. Stephens said UCC members par-� ticipate in a lot of backcountry work. “They’re living out of a tent for the whole summer and in really incredibly beautiful places,� she said. Students can also apply for an alternative spring break trip to the Grand Staircase-�Escalante National Monument in Bryce Canyon. The trip includes Russian olive removal and a backpack trip into the lesser known areas of the monument, Stephens said. Summer UCC members also have

the opportunity to receive USU credit through an ENVS course that focuses on land management and sustainability. Stephens said it helps students who are looking to obtain jobs with federal land management agencies. “It’s a great foot in the door,� Stephens said. “It’s a great opportu-� nity to get some hands-�on experi-� ence and work with a variety of land management agencies. I think all UCC members come away from the summer changed and feeling a greater connection to Utah public lands.� Students who are interested in joining the UCC can visit their link on the USU website or drop by their offices in TSC 318. – Twitter: @TmeraBradley

eral years this will actually be paid for through aviation student fees. Everything after that will be extra money that we’ll be able to put away for a future sim. Not everything lasts forever and this will help us to be able to run ourselves so we don’t have to go back to the school and ask for another loan in the future.� Many commercial airlines require pilots to complete a course in jet-�flight simulation before they can operate an actual aircraft. At USU, students can fulfill this prerequisite through training in the CRJ700 simulator. The aviation department is confident this is something that will attract new students to the uni-� versity. “To be able to say that we have a CRJ700 simulator really helps us to sell our program,� Paquet said. “We give tours to students who may want to come here and when you mention anything like this to them, 90 percent of the time we get a reaction of ‘This is where I’m going.’ That’s because people are very impressed by it and they know how this is going to help their future, and there aren’t very many other schools that offer this right now.� The CRJ700 simulator offers students the chance to train for the type of plane that is being adopted by most commercial airlines. “It’s a simulation of a popular plane that is becoming more widely used all the time,� said Chris Sidor, another senior flight instructor. “A lot of the airlines are transitioning from actual CRJ200 models to the CRJ700. It’s pretty much the same plane but only a little bigger and capable of carrying more passengers. They’re everywhere.� In addition to having an accredited flight simulator for the use of its stu-� dents, Paquet attributes the success and growth of the aviation program to instructors and trainers who have flown for companies such as Delta Airlines. “It’s great to have a simulator but you have to be able to actually teach your stu-� dents how to properly fly the aircraft and what to do in certain situations,� Paquet said. “We have very good instructors who have brought their experience from their airline training and they transfer the breadth of that knowledge to the stu-� dents.� The combination of experienced instructors and technologically advanced equipment sets USU apart from other universities that might offer similar pro-� grams. “Other schools might not have the opportunity of having instructors who came from airlines,� Paquet said. “They likely have a simulator where students can just press buttons and see what hap-� pens. We don’t do that here. We have a specific curriculum that teaches the student what they need to know to suc-�

Four Utah State University foot-� ball players are headed to the second annual Casino Del Sol College All-� Star Game, played at Kino Stadium in Tucson, Ariz., Friday Jan. 11. The four Aggies include senior tight end Kellen Bartlett, senior wide receiver Matt Austin, senior line-� backer Bojay Filimoeatu and senior defensive lineman Al Lapuaho. The 2013 Casino Del Sol College All-�Star Game is the second annual post-�season football exhibition of draft eligible college seniors. The game provides a platform for selected, elite athletes to showcase their talents to scouts from the NFL, CFL and Arena teams. Following the inaugural Casino Del Sol College All-�Star Game in 2012, 67 players were signed to NFL contracts. In all, Utah State now has six football players participating in all-� star games this year. Senior running back Kerwynn Williams will play in the 2013 East-�West Shrine Game Jan. 19 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., while senior corner-� back Will Davis will play in the 2013 Senior Bowl Jan. 26 at Ladd-�Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. Both the East-�West Shrine Game and the Senior Bowl will be televised live on the NFL Network.

Gov. Herbert to take oath The 2013 Inauguration will take place at the Utah State Capitol with Governor Gary R. Herbert and other State elected officials taking the Oath of Office.

We’ve already been receiving calls and emails about the simu-� lator and the program because of our new website we set up and because of the pub-� licity we’ve been getting.� As new applications come, the two senior flight instructors are hopeful for the department’s future. “This is a huge benefit for our school and our program and we look at it as a positive thing,� Sidor said. “By the end of their senior year, students are flying from Phoenix to Tucson.

Whether it’s for a creative arts class or for personal enjoyment, many students will take a trip to downtown Logan to see performances like “Stomp,� Brian Regan and other visiting productions at the Ellen Eccles Theatre during some point of their college careers. Built in 1923 after the Thatcher Opera House burned down, the theater was the vision of George W. Thatcher Jr. and his cousin Brigham Guy Thatcher. The men designed the theater to be the crown jewel of downtown Logan and decorated the interior of the theater like other great theaters. They named it the Capitol Theater and the Thatchers had murals painted in the colors of a phoenix to symbolize the rising of this new theater out of the ashes of the Thatcher Opera House.

Gym resolutions sometimes go wrong BY HAILEE HOUSLEY staff writer

Gyms are packed with New Year’s resolutioners who made the commit-� ment to get in shape. However, overpacked gyms can lead to accidents and embarrassing moments. “Any time after five during the first part of January, the gym is hec-� tic,� said Matt Roderick, a sophomore majoring in exercise science and a certified personal trainer. “I pretty much live at the gym, so I have a lot of unforgettable gym sto-� ries.� Roderick said it is almost always a good thing to ask others for help in the gym, but some-� times it can put people in embarrassing situations. About a year and a half ago, Roderick started training with Corey Wilkinson, former Mr. Utah, he said. “I saw him at the gym and wanted really big legs like him, so I asked him to teach me how to squat,� Roderick said. “He agreed to help me out and we

started doing twenty sets of squats a week.� Roderick said prior to this, he hadn’t done very much squatting. “I always felt ridiculous next to him because he always squatted at a much higher weight,� he said. “It was very humbling. Because of this, I decided to try a rep at a higher weight. When I started to finish my higher weight rep he said do seven more. I yelled, ‘No, no!’ Then he started pushing me down while I yelled no. Everybody at the gym went silent and looked at me while I yelled. He made me do eight extra squats. I collapsed to the ground, not moving, just moan-� ing.� “I like to think I can do more than I can do,� Roderick said. “Squatting with Mr. Utah was a pain-� ful lesson.� Students may find the gym a crowded place to learn lessons at the begin-� ning of the year. “The gym is definitely more crowded at the beginning of the year,�

I’m not sure why, but ever since that day the word “vegetarian� brings back memories of me being prompted to suck on dirty grass. I’ve grown up a little since then, and I know the correlation between my green friend and vegetarians is scant at best, but I’ve still had a hard time understand-

Work experience helps students plan careers BY JESSICA BEDINGFIELD staff writer

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed a man a lifetime.â&#x20AC;? Cassandra Stewart, a sophomore majoring in mechanical engineering, said she incorporated this saying into her education at USU. Stewart worked in a nutri-â&#x20AC;? tional lab one summer when she was still considering a major in chemistry. Stewart said she found her internship when searching the KSL clas-â&#x20AC;? sifieds after she went home for summer break. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By working, you learn a lot that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn in classes,â&#x20AC;? Stewart said. The popularity of intern-â&#x20AC;? ships, externships and fellow-â&#x20AC;? ships has grown during the past several years. According to Readerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Digest, 75 percent of college students complete an internship prior to gradu-â&#x20AC;? ation today while 3 percent completed an internship in the 1980s. Internship search engines such as internships.

com and Fastweb and other career specific websites such as CubReporters are emerg-â&#x20AC;? ing tools that are helpful for students looking for such opportunities. While having a good resume, good grades and lots of extracurricular or club experiences appeal to those entities offering intern-â&#x20AC;? ships, networking still is one of the best ways to get a solid foot in the door at most places, according to Jill Montgomery, a sophomore studying geology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make connections now,â&#x20AC;? Montgomery said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I actually was offered the internship because of a geology teacher I had at Dixie State College before I transferred to USU. Also, communicate with your advisers and show a desire for internships.â&#x20AC;? USU has on-â&#x20AC;?campus resources to help students apply for internships. Career Services, located in the University Inn, provides free drop-â&#x20AC;?in resume and cover letter editing, career coaches, practice interviews and gen-â&#x20AC;? eral advice.

The Huntsman Business College provides classes and social events focused on net-â&#x20AC;? working. Other departments provide similar networking

support with alumni for their students. The Institute of Government and Politics helps students from any

program across campus participate in internships in Washington, D.C. Montgomery interned at USU-â&#x20AC;?Easternâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prehistoric

PREFORMERS ACT IN â&#x20AC;&#x153;Les Miserablesâ&#x20AC;? at the Ellen Eccles Theatre. The stage has hosted many local and visiting acts since the 1920s. Statesman file photo

ART: Theater has been a staple for more than 80 years that came to Logan and the Capitol Theatre on the Vaudeville circuit, but by 1958 they stopped and the theater was repurposed to be used as a movie theater. The inte-â&#x20AC;? rior was painted a battleship-â&#x20AC;? green, murals were covered in burlap and a large wall was built to seal off the stage from the audience so movies could be projected. It was the distinctive deco-â&#x20AC;? rative details that caught the eye of then-â&#x20AC;?5-â&#x20AC;?year-â&#x20AC;?old Michael Ballam when he would attend

productions and films with his family. Ballam, who is now a professor of music at USU, said he watched the theater fall into disrepair throughout his child-â&#x20AC;? hood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could see at age five how run-â&#x20AC;?down and neglected the stage and the dressing rooms were,â&#x20AC;? Ballam said. After a career of performing on stages around the world, Ballam returned to Logan in 1987 to find the theater was going to be demolished. He went to Eugene Needham, who owned the theater at the time, and convinced him the building was worth saving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could envision exactly what needed to be done with the theater and convinced Eugene in very short order what we needed to do,â&#x20AC;? Ballam said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He needed to give it to the people and then we could restore it.â&#x20AC;? Ballam said it was no easy task to get the support he needed from the community, but when it came, it came in droves, and more and more people came to see the vision of the theatre the way that he did.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We began in great earnest to begin a fundraising cam-â&#x20AC;? paign that would allow us to bring the grand old lady back to life even more glorious than before,â&#x20AC;? Ballam said. Support came from the community as a whole, as well as from the George and Delores Doree Eccles Foundation, the Bullen family and many others. The theater was renamed the Ellen Eccles Theatre after Thatcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, an honored resident of Cache Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was saved by the com-â&#x20AC;? munity,â&#x20AC;? said Wally Bloss, who is the executive director of the Cache Valley Center of the Arts. The CVCA is now the primary caretaker of the Ellen Eccles Theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A while back, there were some issues with the city not wanting to continue to pay for things that they used to pay for,â&#x20AC;? Bloss said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some would say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you worried?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No, something will happen. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite know what, but I know the community sup-â&#x20AC;? ports the Theatre.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? In the spirit of the Ellen Eccles Theatre being a com-â&#x20AC;?

munity theater, the CVCA made it possible for more and more community theater groups to use the space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have cut back bringing in productions to help our resident companies grow,â&#x20AC;? said Amanda Castillo, program-â&#x20AC;? ming director for the CVCA. Castillo said there used to only be two community theater groups that would rent the space, but the number has increased to four groups. The challenge now for Castillo and her team is to figure out how to best find the balance of community-â&#x20AC;? based productions with the billing of outside perform-â&#x20AC;? ers, but with annual billings made by groups like the Bar J Wranglers and performers like Brian Regan, she said the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horizon is expanding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew we had a jewel in the Eccles,â&#x20AC;? Ballam said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was just a sleeping beauty. She needed a handsome prince to awaken her. I was not that prince. The people of Cache Valley were.â&#x20AC;?

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no shortage of dating advice in the world, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all worthless. Parents, siblings, friends and enemies will offer relationship tips at the slightest provocation. These impromptu gurus base some advice on personal experience, some on rumors.

FOOD: Eating healthy has challenges

From page 4 ing the appeal of life without meat, except for animal humanitarian reasons, of course. In my two months as a 21-year-old, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had two important revelations. First, my body is growing old and creaky far too fast. Second, I found out Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not only caring for my own body, but a tiny rice-grain-sized person inside of me. Oh baby. Hurting my own body is one thing, but having responsibility for someone else makes eating a little more complicated. These two things have forced me to closely look at what I eat. While Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never be a full-fledged vegetarian, the lifestyle has become more and more attractive. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found there are a number of misconceptions about vegetarians, including the idea that a dinner has completely consist of green peppers and

lettuce. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been introduced to a world of soyburgers, pinto beans and veggie-burritos and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I could go back if I tried. During Christmas break I watched â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forks Over Knives,â&#x20AC;? a documentary promoting a not only meat-free diet, but a dairy-free one as well. A scene at the end of the movie panned over a number of healthy, but delicious-looking, vegetarian meals. I had to hit the pause button for one because it looked so mouth-watering: veggie tacos. Before trying the healthy dish, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine a taco without beef, sour cream and cheese. After making and trying the dish over Christmas break, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine it with them. With the right amount of taco seasoning, I hardly missed ground beef and the cilantro, and red onion provided a burst of flavor

that would have been overpowered by other ingredients. I served the meal with a side of grapes and a small portion of refried beans, and both complimented the dish wonderfully. It may be cliche, but my New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolution is to find more recipes that are delicious as well as healthy. Anybody can go to McDonalds or live on an all-lettuce diet, but it takes a lot of time to plan menus, shop and cook. If you have any recipes that are quick, affordable and healthy, shoot me an email. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to hear about your food-related resolutions. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Allee Wilkinson is a journalism student and wanna-be food critic. She loves cooking and attempting to eat healthy. She can be reached at allee. evensen@aggiemail. and on Twitter @wilkified.


VEGGIE TACOS 4 cups cooked brown rice 1 cup canned pinto beans 1 tablespoon taco seasoning 1/2 red onion, sliced 1 medium-sized tomato, diced 8 corn tortillas Shredded lettuce Chopped cilantro

Cook the rice according to the package directions. Cut the onion, tomato and cilantro and set them aside. Fluff with a fork and add the taco seasoning. Drain and rinse the beans. Add the beans to the rice and cover, sitting on extremely low heat. Warm the corn tortillas in a microwave or on the stove if you like them more crisp. Spoon the rice mixture onto a tortilla and top with vegetables as desired.

GYM: Workout resolutions may result in embarassing stories

From page 4 rassing gym experience, he said he has friends who have been mortified. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out, but my one friend had a really embarrassing experience once at the gym,â&#x20AC;? Allen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She wanted to impress some guys so she turned the treadmill on really fast. It flung her off the back into the wall, and when she tried to stand up

the belt kept burning her. The guys she was trying to impress came to help her get up, but they never talked to her again after that.â&#x20AC;? Braxton Harris, an undeclared sophomore, said when lifting a lot of weight to make sure to keep all bodily functions in check. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One time in high school me and my friend were doing some lifting

for football,â&#x20AC;? Harris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole team was in the weight room doing their workout. My friend was doing military press where you jump and press the bar above your head and he was doing it with a lot of weight, and when he jumped and pressed it above his head, he shit his pants. He dropped the weight and walked funny to the locker room. No one saw him the rest of the

day.â&#x20AC;? Roderick said the gym can feel so crowded that it can be hard to find the right equipment to work out with, but the rush of resolutioners die out around February. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to find a bench at the gym during January,â&#x20AC;? Roderick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The resolutioners keep the gym packed from 5 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock to any time after 5. The gym is hectic, but

90 percent of the resolu-â&#x20AC;? tioners you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see by February. For most, once it gets to Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, they will be done.â&#x20AC;? Roderick has his own personal theory on why resolutioners quit their goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem that people have is they lack three things: knowlege, discipline and patience,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Resolutioners may want to be healthy,

but if they lack those three things they will fail their fitness goals.â&#x20AC;? He said most of all, people move too fast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People try to take their bodies from walking speed to race car speed in five seconds,â&#x20AC;? Roderick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to burn out your engine.â&#x20AC;?

She said she believes the job will help in her future education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will help me in my upper-â&#x20AC;?division courses and with leadership experiences,â&#x20AC;? she said. Jake Anderson, a junior in accounting, took a different path. He worked for Liberty Tax last year and found that the experience helped him in his tax class this past semes-â&#x20AC;? ter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really helped some people out who did not know a whole lot about taxes and it really solidified my desire to do accounting,â&#x20AC;?

He said knowing what can wait and what are urgent needs is a skill one needs to develop sooner rather than later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Writing down where you spent what amount of money sounds like com-â&#x20AC;? mon sense, but you would be shocked to know the percentage of people actu-â&#x20AC;? ally do this,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are many different types of STUDENTS CAN ATTEND workshops at the Family Life Center twice a month to learn about saving money, budgeting and cutting spending.

Aggies soar past Rockets BY CURTIS LUNDSTROM sports editor

WAC Champions. An 11-â&#x20AC;?2 record. Famous Idaho Potato Bowl Champions. Top-â&#x20AC;?25 ranking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best season ever in the history of Utah State football,â&#x20AC;? said former Utah State head coach Gary Andersen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And these guys have got that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be there until someone can take it away from them.â&#x20AC;?

The records and achievements fell fast and furious this season for the Aggies. From individual records to team achieve-â&#x20AC;? ments, the 2012 squad left its mark in the record book in a legion of ways. Most recent was senior running back Kerwynn Williams rushing for 229 yards and three touch-â&#x20AC;? downs to lead the Aggies to their second ever bowl victory with a 41-â&#x20AC;?15 romp of Toledo University to earn redemption. The 229 rushing yards

was the second most in Potato Bowl history, earning Williams the MVP award for the game. Williams also became the WACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-â&#x20AC;?time leader in all-â&#x20AC;?purpose yards with 6,928 in his career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was definitely big,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to thank my teammates for that.â&#x20AC;? While Williams stole the show in the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school record 11th win of the season, sophomore Chuckie Keeton also left his mark on USU his-â&#x20AC;?

tory after passing for 227 yards on 21 completions. Keeton set a school record for both completions in a season with 275 and total passing yards with 3,421 yards through the air this season. But for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad, it was about more than individual acco-â&#x20AC;? lades. It was about the team and achieving the goals set as a squad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To get to 11-â&#x20AC;?2, win the WAC championship and now to have a bowl game championship, they

reached every single goal that they set on January 7,â&#x20AC;? Andersen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen very often in life. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen very often in football. They set their goals. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask them to set goal, they do it them-â&#x20AC;? selves.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team did more than that. On top of winning 11 games, the Aggies also won the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first outright conference

Matt Wells named head coach


In an effort to maintain continuity, Utah State Athletic Director Scott Barnes announced that offensive coordinator Matt Wells will be Gary Andersenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successor as head football coach after Andersen accepted the head coaching position at the University of Wisconsin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m extremely honored and humbled to be the next head football coach at my alma mater,â&#x20AC;? Wells said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a univer-â&#x20AC;? sity that molded me as a student-â&#x20AC;?athlete, and I am fully invested in and passion-â&#x20AC;? ate about continuing the vision for this football program that was set before me. I would like to thank University President Stan Albrecht and Mr. Barnes for the trust, belief and vision they have in me to lead this program.â&#x20AC;? Wells, the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 27th head coach, said his primary focus as head coach was to fill out his coaching staff and to hit the

recruiting trail. As was the case under Andersen, the coaching staff will focus first on in-â&#x20AC;?state recruiting, followed by out of state. Having been promoted from offensive coordinator, Wells said the offense will maintain a â&#x20AC;&#x153;spread, up-â&#x20AC;?beat tempo,â&#x20AC;? and the defense will be very similar to the way it was under Andersen. Wells spent the past two years work-â&#x20AC;? ing with an offense that ranked 23rd in the nation in total yardage and set four school records in total points, total offense, completions, and total yards per game. Prior to Utah State, Wells spent time at Navy, Tulsa New Mexico and Louisville before returning to his alma mater. Every position Wells held involved working on the offensive side of the ball. Barnes and Wells each stressed that 979,)%('3%',1%88;)007 addresses the players were the number one priority for media after being introduced to Aggie Nation in a press con-

It was a busy holiday break for the Utah State menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team, from buzzer beating shots to tournament wins. It all culminated in a 12-â&#x20AC;?game winning streak as the Aggies improved to 13-â&#x20AC;?1 overall and have started Western Athletic Conference play with a 4-â&#x20AC;?0 record. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would have mentally been really easy to just kind of quit because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worn

out,â&#x20AC;? head coach Stew Morrill said after four games in eight days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that. We made enough plays. We really need to get bet-â&#x20AC;? ter in some areas, but right now we need to enjoy the win.

Turning the corner in conference play BY CURTIS LUNDSTROM sports editor

After a rough non-â&#x20AC;?conference schedule to start the season, the Utah State womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team has gotten off on the right foot to start conference play. Led by senior Devyn Christensen and junior Jennifer Schlott, the Aggies are 3-â&#x20AC;?1 in con-â&#x20AC;? ference play and have improved to 6-â&#x20AC;?9 overall this season. USU returns to action Jan. 12 with a visit to San Jose State at 3 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very pleased with how we started conference,â&#x20AC;? said head coach Jerry Finkbeiner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a 15-â&#x20AC;?foot jumper away from being 4-â&#x20AC;?0. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve turned the corner a little bit with game performance and we look forward to continu-â&#x20AC;? ing that.â&#x20AC;? Utah State 91, Idaho 85 The Aggies erased a 16-â&#x20AC;?point second-â&#x20AC;?half deficit to out-â&#x20AC;?duel the Vandals on the road behind 25 points from Christensen, a career-â&#x20AC;?high 21 from Makenlee Williams and 19 from senior Jenna Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Devyn is playing up to our expectations for her,â&#x20AC;? Finkbeiner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a foot issue and

playing at about 70 percent speed, which has affected her game. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a high threshold for pain and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played right through it.â&#x20AC;? Johnson added 10 rebounds for her third straight double-â&#x20AC;?double outing and USU shot 47 percent from the field and a blistering 50 percent from the 3-â&#x20AC;?point line to come back and stun the Vandals.

14 points and 12 rebounds while Johnson shared the team-â&#x20AC;?high 19 points and pulled down 11 rebounds. Four Aggies scored in double figures as Schlott had 11 points and Christensen shared team honors with 19 points. USU outrebounded the Bobcats 48-â&#x20AC;?41 and held the WACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading scor-â&#x20AC;? er in Diamond Ford to 18 points.

Playing its second overtime game in three games, the Aggies dropped their first conference game of the season despite a career-â&#x20AC;?high 32 points from Schlott. Johnson added 15 for USU, but the Aggies were unable to overcome a balanced Redhawk offense that saw four players score at least 10 points. Kacie Sowell scored 24 points for Seattle, the Redhawks out-â&#x20AC;? rebounded the Aggies 48-â&#x20AC;?33, including 15 offensive rebounds and outscored them 40-â&#x20AC;?26 in the paint to snap Utah Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season-â&#x20AC;? high three game winning streak.

Schlott recorded a game-â&#x20AC;?high 24 points and Christensen added 20 as the Aggies out-â&#x20AC;?ran the Roadrunners in the extra session. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a lot of individual game highlights and Jenna Johnson as well has been playing at a high level,â&#x20AC;? Finkbeiner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They both return experience and are showing it.â&#x20AC;? USU shot 40 percent from the field while limiting UTSA to 30 percent and the Aggies shot a scorching 96 percent from the free-â&#x20AC;?throw line to set a school record.

After giving up the first five points of the game, Reed took over for the Aggies with nine straight points as part of a 12-â&#x20AC;?0 run that gave USU the lead. The Redhawks stormed back but Davis fueled USU down the stretch to pull out the win. Utah State 81, Texas State 57 Led by a team-â&#x20AC;?high 21 points from Medlin, the Aggies buried the Bobcats with a 3-â&#x20AC;?point barrage.

Utah State 69, Utah Valley 63 Playing their second of three in-â&#x20AC;?state matchups this season, the Aggies scraped their way past the Wolverines in Orem behind a strong debut from freshman Marcel Davis.The 6-â&#x20AC;?foot-â&#x20AC;?2 American Fork native scored a team-â&#x20AC;?high 17 points and Shaw added 12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is just getting better day-â&#x20AC;?by-â&#x20AC;?day,â&#x20AC;? USU head coach Stew Morrill said of Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a little tentative early, but he has gotten more aggressive. A big part of it is he believes he can play.

community. I am definitely happy about him returning after spend-â&#x20AC;? ing my first two years in college working with him as my position coach. We return a lot of players on both sides of the ball, and it is going to be fun to watch how this team progresses under his leader-â&#x20AC;? ship.â&#x20AC;? Since his appointment, Wells has made several hires to the coaching staff and announced sev-â&#x20AC;? eral others that will remain on the staff.

Defensive line coach Frank Maile, defensive backs coach Kendrick Shaver, wide receivers coach Jovon Bouknight and line-â&#x20AC;? backers coach Kevin Clune will all remain on staff while Kevin McGiven will take over as co-â&#x20AC;? offensive coordinator. McGiven spent the 2012 sea-â&#x20AC;? son as the offensive coordinator at Montana State, helping the Bobcats to an 11-â&#x20AC;?2 record and a Big Sky championship while aver-â&#x20AC;? aging 33.4 points per game. This

will be McGivensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second position at USU after serving the 2009 season as assistant head coach to Gary Andersen. Wells also announced the hire of Luke Wells, his brother, who will serve as co-â&#x20AC;?offensive coordi-â&#x20AC;? nator, recruiting coordinator and tight ends coach after serving as tight end and wide receivers coach at Iowa State. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very happy to announce Luke Wells as a member of our staff,â&#x20AC;? said Matt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back-â&#x20AC;?

It also marks just the second time ever the Aggies finished the season ranked in the AP poll. The victory against Toledo was the 26th for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior class, tying the school record set by the 1962 class that won nine games in 1960 and 1961 and eight in 1962, though back then freshman werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eligible to play so play-â&#x20AC;? ers only had three years of eligibility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talk about it all the

time, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grow ourselves some young men into men and this should help them move through life,â&#x20AC;? Andersen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whenever they get their backs up against the wall theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll understand they can set lofty goals and have a great opportunity to reach them. They did that this year and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud of them.â&#x20AC;? The fact that USU was one of 31 schools that had a gradu-â&#x20AC;? ation rate of 75 percent or more of its football student-â&#x20AC;? athletes and the only team from the WAC honored attests to that. Needless to say, the 2012

Utah State football team had the best season in school history all the way around, and while Andersen said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to savor this victory for awhile, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s optimistic for the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a tremendous senior class,â&#x20AC;? Andersen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These 19 kids have been unbelievable as far as allowing the younger kids to produce on the field.

NHL ends bickering, beats US Congress Our nation faced a grave crisis not too long ago. Constant bickering between two polar opposites threatened to destroy a sacred institution financially. Leaders from both sides met constantly to try to work out a solution, sometimes making progress, other times suffering major setbacks. Many worried that this beloved entity would never be the same again, and the people would sufAn Editorial Opinion fer as such. Then, when all hope seemed lost, it happened. At the last minute, a deal was reached that saved our land for another 10 years. Citizens rejoiced at the deal and prepared themselves for a bright decade of success and happiness. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right: The National Hockey League lockout is over. A 48-game season will begin Jan 15. Oh, and Congress reached a last-minute deal, preventing the U.S. from going over the fiscal cliff or something. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of funny, really. The NHL has been locked out since October, costing the league half of its season. Both sides couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree on anything, and many thought the 2012-2013 season would be completely cancelled. But in a surprising move, the owners and the NHL Playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association managed to broker a deal that ultimately saved the season at its halfway point and guaranteed a period of stability for the sport for at least eight to 10 years. The fans, while still bitter over all the drama, will eventually get over it and return to the rink to cheer on their teams. The U.S. government, however, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come together at the halfway point to put together a deal that would finally get the country back on track toward financial stability. They instead waited until the last possible minute to do anything, and in the end simply kicked the can down the road a little farther. Yes, the Bush tax cuts expired, but more needs to be done in order to ultimately save the U.S. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s be honest here. Neither institution came out of their situations smelling like roses. Both narrowly avoided disaster by passing the problem down to future generations. The NHL will have to deal with the same crap in ten years, while the U.S. government still canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even come to an agreement on what flavor of punch to serve at a high school dance. Still, the NHL managed to get things going faster than the U.S. did and at least has a point in the future to work toward and plenty of time to reach another agreement. Congress, get your act together. When you let the fourth-largest sports league of the Big Four outshine you, you know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in trouble.

ForumLetters Coach spoiled USU Football To the editor: Dear Coach Andersen: What a year it has been for Utah State! As a BYU alumnus, I am also a big fan of the Aggies and the Utes and am so proud of what Utah State Football has accomplished this year. It was fantastic to think about how dominant USU might be in the future â&#x20AC;&#x201D; there is serious potential in its becoming a destination school for highly ranked high school football recruits! More than anything, it

was vital to me that you as head coach and Utah native make the decision to finish your career at USU, thereby creating something really special for our state in terms of rivalries, football notoriety, national press coverage, etc., regardless of whether that might mean some potential dominating victories over my beloved Cougars. I feel sick for you, Logan and USU and for myself, now that that dream is lost. I lived 15 years in St Paul, Minn., in close proximity to the Badgers, who were rivals with my U of MN Gophers. That commu-

Photo Editor Delayne Locke nity â&#x20AC;&#x201D; although beautiful â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is nothing compared to the quality of people in Logan. What a crushing decision you have made with regards to those of us, who have hoped for so many years to see USU Football one day become a perennial powerhouse. Why be a hero in Wisconsin (who can attract many more candidates than USU), so far away from home, rather than cultivate a glorious legacy in your home state? Really? Is it really worth it? Almost crying, David Rowley Provo, Utah

Did you know a recently passed anticrime law in Texas requires the criminal to Common give at least 24 Sense hours notice, either orally or in writing, before the offense is committed? How about that in Detroit, it is illegal to let your pig run free through the streets unless it has a ring in its nose? Are you aware that in our very own home of Utah, it is illegal to detonate any nuclear weapon or cause a catastrophe? Also in Utah, birds always have the right of way on the highway, it is unlawful to own a pet apple and my personal favorite: It is illegal to hunt whales. Does any of this sound odd? Have you ever wanted to go whaling in the Great Salt Lake, or perhaps detonate a nuclear weapon in your neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backyard after a Super Bowl bet gone bad? There are a lot of dumb laws in this country, many of them quite hilarious. I recommend if you need to kill a little time in a dull class to look up these laws at My name is Richard Winters. I have been graced with the privilege to rant about all of the things that defy common sense and boggle my mind. I intend to make it interesting, and for now, by way of introduction, let me simply say this: I am a senior double majoring in law and constitutional studies and communication studies. I may graduate this semester, or

next. Who knows anymore? It changes too frequently to keep track. At any rate, you should know a little bit about my views. This is in fact a bi-weekly opinion column so naturally, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get opinions. Hopefully youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll agree with much of what I say. If not, hopefully you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disagree with all of it. If you do, then hopefully youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look past my inadequacies to recognize Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just a regular guy trying to make his way in the world. Whatever you end up thinking, know this: Everything I believe and will write about in the coming semester will be based on logic, reasoning, high standards, real intrinsic evidence, historical analysis and most important of all, common sense. Thomas Paine published the pamphlet â&#x20AC;&#x153;Common Senseâ&#x20AC;? in 1776. It was this pamphlet that sparked the grassroots of dissent already arising in 18th-century America and paved the way for the Revolutionary War. This war led to America as it used to be known. America, of course, has changed dramatically. It does not matter what political leanings you hold or what religion you are. Everything you have from computers to cars, from the Internet to airplanes, the very technological advances that allowed for the newspaper you are reading and the university you attend came in direct consequence of men like Thomas Paine standing up to tyranny and fighting for the freedom we all at least claim to hold so dear. Thomas Paine said in his pamphlet, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason.â&#x20AC;?

In other words, just because some people preach something â&#x20AC;&#x153;isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wrongâ&#x20AC;? doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make that something â&#x20AC;&#x153;right.â&#x20AC;?

With all of the excitement surrounding the 57th presidential inauguration, it’s easy to forget there have been many inaugurations before it. Over the years, the event has become highly formalized, — McClatchy-Tribune with the day’s scheduled events taking on almost ritualistic significance.

Morning worship service

Procession to the Capitol

Officially begun in 1933 with Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s attendance of a church service at St. John’s Episcopal Church (Washington quietly visited a church before his first inauguration), nearly every president since has decided to participate in faith services on the morning of the inauguration. While most presidents went to Protestant or other Christian churches, John F. Kennedy, the nation’s first Roman Catholic president, attended services at Holy Trinity Church.

Every president has had a form of procession to the swearing-in ceremony, but the procedure we see today was established in 1849 with Zachary Taylor’s inauguration ceremony. After being escorted to the White House by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies — commonly referred to as the JCCIC — the president-elect, vice-president-elect and their spouses are joined by the outgoing president and vice president to journey to the Capitol for the swearing-in ceremony. Most presidents have ridden to their inaugurations in a carriage or automobile. Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson both walked to their ceremonies. In 1869, Andrew Johnson became the third outgoing president to not accompany his successor on the procession; Johnson was inside the White House until his term expired at noon, signing last-minute bills into law.

President’s swearing-in ceremony and inaugural address

Departure of the outgoing president

Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution includes the oath of the office of president. The president is typically sworn in by the chief justice of the Supreme Court in front of the Capitol, though this has frequently changed due to circumstance. The oath reads: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” And, of course, the president’s swearing-in ceremony is accompanied by the inaugural address, which is often the most anticipated portion of the inauguration. Though George Washington’s first address was lackluster, other addresses have set the tone for the presidency. William Henry Harrison gave his inaugural address — the longest on record — in bitterly cold and inclement weather, which was widely speculated to have caused his death a month later.

The 1889 “Handbook of Official and Social Etiquette and Public Ceremonies at Washington” described the ceremony this way: “His departure from the Capital is attended with no ceremony, other than the presence of the members of his late Cabinet and a few officials and personal friends. The President leaves the Capital as soon as practicable after the inauguration of his successor.” But from the start — the 1798 inauguration of John Adams, attended by Washington — the public has always paid a great deal of attention to the outgoing president. In recent years, newly installed presidents have accompanied their predecessors to a helicopter waiting to see the former president and his spouse off.

C H U C K K E N N E DY / P O O L / M C T

The Constitution specifically requires the vice president and other elected officials to step forward to take an oath to defend the Constitution, but unlike the presidential oath, it does not specify the form that oath must take. Also unlike the presidential oath, a variety of public officials can and have administered the oath to the incoming vice president. The oath, dictated by Congress, is the same one repeated by senators, representatives and other government officers, and has been in use since 1884. Since 1981, the swearing-in ceremonies have been held at the west front terrace of the Capitol.

Inaugural luncheon This tradition started in 1897, when the Senate Committee on Arrangements gave a luncheon for President William McKinley. Other presidents played host in a similar manner — in 1945, Roosevelt hosted more than 2,000 guests at the White House. The tradition did not begin in its current official form until 1953, when President Dwight Eisenhower and 50 other guests of the JCCIC ate creamed chicken, baked ham and potato puffs in the Old Senate Chamber. The JCCIC luncheon usually includes speeches, gifts from the JCCIC and toasts to the new administration.

TENTATIVE SCHEDULE ■ Jan. 19: Just like in 2009, the Obama and Biden families — as well as members of the president’s cabinet — will dedicate their time to serving others as part of a National Day of Service to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A youth concert will be held that evening at the Walter E.

Inaugural parade Going back to the first, the parade is an Inauguration Day standby. When the JCCIC has concluded its luncheon, the president and vice president will journey down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House amid streamers, confetti and general celebration. While the first parades were informal affairs, James Madison was accompanied by cavalry during his 1809 inauguration, setting the tone for the future. Abraham Lincoln’s second inauguration in 1865 — 148 years before this year’s swearing-in of Barack Obama — was the first time blacks were allowed to march in the parade.

■ Jan. 20: For the seventh time in U.S. history, Inauguration Day, mandated by the Constitution as January 20, falls on a Sunday. In keeping with previous Sunday Inauguration Days, President Obama and Vice President Biden will participate in a private swearing-in. ■ Jan. 21: A ceremonial public swearing-in will take place at the U.S. Capitol. After the ceremony, the president attends a luncheon organized by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) in the Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol. Following the luncheon, the inaugural parade will go along Pennsylvania Ave., from the steps of the Capitol building to the White House. In the evening the president attends official balls, which are planned by the Presidential Inaugural Committee. ■ Jan. 22:The sworn-in president and vice president will participate in a prayer service at the Washington National Cathedral. The service will be webcast live at

Inaugural ball Though the practice began informally, with multiple balls following Washington’s first inauguration, the growing number of balls necessitated the construction of dedicated ballrooms in Judiciary Square. Eventually, the idea of a single ball that could accommodate thousands of guests was embraced by partygoers who wished to view the newly sworn-in president. The event was canceled for the first time in 1853, when Franklin Pierce wished to mourn the loss of his son. Sixty years later, Woodrow Wilson firmly canceled the inaugural ball, and the practice of private parties sprang up when Warren G. Harding asked for a simple affair without pageantry to mark the occasion of his inauguration. In 1949, Harry Truman revived the practice of the ball, and Eisenhower’s inauguration in 1953 necessitated a second ball due to great demand for tickets. The number of balls reached a high of 14 during the second inauguration of President Bill Clinton in 1997.

Abraham Lincoln

March 4, 1865

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds ...”

Franklin D. Roosevelt

March 4, 1933

So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”

BY ROBERT S. BOYD McClatchy Newspapers

Inaugurals are a mixture of pomp, festival and gravity, the American equivalent of a coronation. Their rituals are laden with symbols of national purpose, continuity and unity. For 220 years, they have marked the peaceful transfer of power, a feat few other countries have achieved. Presidents have tinkered with the ceremony to reflect their personal style and the state of the nation. There’ve been top hats and bare heads, cheers and boos along parade routes, unruly mobs in the White House, poets and preachers, brilliant sunshine and bitter cold, glamorous balls and tragic circumstances. Almost always the day has featured a solemn swearing-in, an inaugural address, one or more parades, plus parties, receptions and fancy balls far into the night. The heart of the affair is the inaugural oath, first recited by George Washington on the balcony of New York City’s Federal Hall, the original seat of government, on April 30, 1789. The 35-word oath is prescribed in the Constitution, but Washington added the phrase “So help me God” and placed his left hand on a Bible hastily borrowed from a Masonic Lodge on Wall Street. Most later presidents have followed the founding father’s precedent. Washington’s successor, John Adams, took the oath in Philadelphia’s Independence Hall. Thomas Jefferson did it in the new Senate chamber in the District of Columbia in 1801. James Monroe moved the ceremony outside to the east front of the Capitol in 1817. It remained there until 1981, when Ronald Reagan switched it

And so, my fellow Americans: Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.”

We have every right to dream heroic dreams. Those who say that we are in a time when there are no heroes just don’t know where to look.”

to the Capitol’s west front as a giant stage prop for his inauguration. Sub-zero temperatures drove Reagan inside the Capitol building in 1985 for his second oathtaking and forced the cancellation of his parade, disappointing 12,000 marchers, 66 floats and 57 bands. Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson showed their common touch by eschewing carriages and walking up to Capitol Hill to be sworn in. Jimmy Carter delighted the crowd and horrified the Secret Service by leaving his armored limousine after the swearing-in, and strolling down Pennsylvania Avenue with his wife and children to the White House. Both Bushes, the Clintons and the Obamas walked part of the way at their inaugurals as well. Until Benjamin Harrison’s 1889 inauguration, the parades usually moved up the hill to the Capitol. Since then, they’ve flowed down the hill past the White House reviewing stand.

President Herbert Hoover, left, and President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt ride to the U.S. Capitol for Roosevelt’s inauguration in Washington, D.C., in March 1933.

Some grander parades lasted well into darkness. After his 1829 parade, Andrew Jackson opened the White House to thousands of his hungry and thirsty followers, who tracked in mud, broke windows and wrecked furniture. After Lincoln’s second

inaugural in 1865, unruly guests stole silver and draperies. There’ve been awkward moments between incoming and outgoing presidents. Adams boycotted Jefferson’s inauguration in 1801. Ulysses Grant refused to ride in the same carriage as Andrew Johnson in 1869. Herbert Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt drove to the Capitol in chilly silence in 1933. Not all inaugurals have been joyous occasions. Andrew Johnson took the oath in his boardinghouse the day after Lincoln’s assassination in April 1865. In 1901, Theodore Roosevelt was sworn in in Buffalo, N.Y., where William McKinley had died earlier that day. A grim-faced Lyndon Johnson was sworn in aboard Air Force One on the day John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas. Gerald Ford took the oath in the East Room of the White House after Richard Nixon resigned in 1974. Ever since Washington, most presidents have launched their

Jan. 20, 1993

We must act on what we know. I take as my guide the hope of a saint: In crucial things, unity; in important things, diversity; in all things, generosity.”


■ Who gave an inaugural address one year, then gave the one after the next president? Grover Cleveland gave his second inaugural address on March 4, 1893. To date, this is the only time a president has been elected, lost to his opponent in the next election cycle, then been elected again to serve a second term.

term with a formal address, usually calling for national reconciliation and setting out their vision for the future. Washington and Adams gave their inaugural speeches in person. Jefferson and a century of his successors sent theirs to Congress in writing. Wilson renewed the personal address in 1913. Some inaugural addresses have etched lines in the national memory: ■ Thomas Jefferson: “We are all Republicans, we are all Federalists.’’ ■ Franklin Roosevelt: “... the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.’’ ■ John Kennedy: “Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.’’ ■ Gerald Ford “Our long national nightmare is over.’’ At Kennedy’s snow-swept inaugural in 1961, the glare of the sun and a stiff breeze kept Robert Frost from reading a poem he had written for the occasion. Vice President Lyndon Johnson tried to shade the lectern with his top hat, but the 86-year-old poet protested “I can’t see in this light.’’ Instead, he recited from memory one of his earlier poems, “The Gift Outright.’’ William Henry Harrison’s 1841 address — an hour and 40 minutes long, delivered without hat or coat on a cold, damp day — turned tragic. The 68-year-old Harrison developed pneumonia and died a month later. His vice president, John Tyler, was sworn in at his hotel and never gave an inaugural address. Barack Obama’s first inauguration in 2009 drew a record 1.8 million people to the National Mall to witness the swearing-in of the country’s first black president.
