Fall colors paint the trees of the woods across from East High School. Students and staff put away their summer clothes and were in full autumn mode during the rainy end of the first nine weeks. Fall Break came and went and East students were looking forward to a spooktactular end to October.

It may very well be said that junior Andrew Henrichsen has the toughest schedule at East. With eight Advanced Placement (AP) classes, and plans to take nine AP tests, Henrichsen has decided to make the most of his last semester at East. He can often be seen walking the halls holding a huge stack of books, with even more in his backpack. The Oracle got the scoop on his schedule.

think ‘What??? Are you crazy? Well, that is something you would do.’”

“I can only do it [schedule] with copious amounts of help from Heavenly Father, by getting up at three a.m. each morning, and one moment at a time.”

[My future plans include] to go on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints, to go to college and hopefully get a PhD in the Sciences with a Bachelors in Spanish (probably), to take at least one psychology class, to get married and have children, to remain an active member of the LDS Church, to do good daily, to accomplish every goal I set for myself, and to be happy!

meet bandit

The most noticeable thing about senior Mary Urquidi’s horse may be his size, but there’s more to him than just his height. Bandit is actually completely blind in his left eye due to the abuse from his previous owner and has severe cataracts in his right eye, yet “he still can run barrels, ride trials and jump jumps,” Urquidi said. Urquidi decided to get the seventeen-year-old Apaloosa horse because of her passion for horses. “I’ve always loved horses, and I’ve always wanted to work and train horses. I’ve been riding for about 10 years now, so I thought a horse with a disability would be a fun challenge,” Urquidi said. Despite his disability, Urquidi would switch places with Bandit in a heartbeat. “I’d like to experience maybe what he goes through. View the world the way he does. To be able to trust so deeply the way he does would be something very awesome to experience.” Trust plays a huge role in the relationship Bandit and Urquidi share. “It takes a lot of trust on his part to allow me to ride him, especially because of his lack of sight.” Though his disability sets him apart, Bandit is different in other ways. Said Urquidi, “He’s his own horse, and has a mind of his own! Sometimes it seems like he knows what I’m saying, or other people around are saying.” Urquidi definitely channels Bandit’s independent spirit, especially when she responded to what she thinks Bandit would say about his life. She laughed, “The pastures always greener on the other side of the hot wire!” -Shelby Woodard
