Who is Landon Pigg? Ashton Kutcher’s body double? Maybe. My favorite artist of November? You betcha. If you’re looking for some quiet music to close your eyes and be introspective to in this chilly Fall season, you’ve found it. Enjoy.
Within thirty seconds of “Falling in Love in a Coffee Shop,” I guarantee you will be asking, “Where are you Landon Pigg? What coffee shop are you talking about? I’ll be right there!” His voice is so soothing and warm, I just want to snuggle up in it.
PHOTO CAPTION: The Saints are winning again, and as the season ends, they’re aiming for a a playoff spot.
The Flagler College men’s soccer team is fighting for a playoff spot at the end of this season, but no spot is guaranteed regardless of their positive results this season.
Flagler College Athletics have no conference affiliation as of now, which makes reaching the playoffs difficult even with a winning season. Teams that are affiliated with a conference have a much more probable chance of reaching the playoffs as each conference guarantees one spot in the playoffs to a member.
As the volleyball season comes to a close, it is the last for some of our fellow Saints. With only five more contests left prior to the Div. II post-season contests, four seniors — Jessica Wedemyer, Sarah Spraggins, Kelly Boese and Leah Melton, with a combination of 36 years of experience — are pushing to finish out their last season as their best.
Although they have been pushed through a tough season, the ladies still have full confidence in themselves, and their fellow teammates to pull through.
The Flagler men’s cross country team also competed Oct. 17 at the at the Hatter Invitational in Deland. The men placed placing 7th out of 13 teams, and Flagler standout Ryan MacManus also placed 7th in the 102-man field. He finished the 8K race with a time of 27:23.
With this run MacManus made the course’s top 10 best times. Alex Bonus finished 36th, Ben Joslin finished 45th, and Evan Roszkowski finished 60th.
Like most college athletes, determination and winning are the name of any game. But unlike most athletes, the balance between fighting a disease and fighting to win have become part of the game for one Flagler cross country runner.
Ryan MacManus has found himself competing on two fronts ever since being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease.
Crohn’s Disease is a lifelong inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Parts of the digestive tract get swollen and have deep sores called ulcers. Painful abdominal cramps, fatigue and fever are common symptoms.
After watching my Cowboys be taken to the woodshed by the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday, I was discouraged, to say the least. This Cowboys team was supposed to make teams like the Cardinals and Bengals look like they belonged somewhere between the Arena League and the XFL. What had happened?
David Matulewicz, sophomore and a vice president of the Political Guild, doesn’t believe the popular myth about apathy in the college-age voting demographic.
With many students attending recent political events like Rock the Vote on the West Lawn and the vice presidential debate in the Ringhaver Student Center, students at Flagler College show that they care about the political issues and plan to use their voices in the upcoming election.
According to Matulewicz, many students from Flagler are active in political campaigns around town.
The Democratic headquarters in St. Johns County has more for students to help with, but the Republication group enlists the help of Flagler students as well.
For example, all it takes are two requirements: Be a community organizer and serve in the Senate for four years. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? But ask Barack Obama, because that’s what he’s done.
One of Governor Sarah Palin’s main points during the vice-presidential debate was that she’s just an average American. I strongly disagree. I believe the average American is more qualified than Palin to be vice-president.
I’ll begin with Palin’s interview with Katie Couric, a journalist who’s known for her soft-news, morning-show style. Palin’s awkward silences and blank stares made Couric seem like an FBI interrogator.
Palin’s response to the bailout plan was so irrational and rambling that Saturday Night Live’s Tina Fey used Palin’s own words to mock her.
Frankie Lawton barely remembers finishing his public relations speech his sophomore year at Flagler as he fell to the ground, shaking uncontrollably. Classmates froze and a friend rushed to break his fall. Minutes later he was rushed away in an ambulance.
Flagler College junior, Nick Carey may look like the average college student, but there is more to him than just studies and college life.
Carey is a volunteer firefighter for the Flagler Beach Fire Department. He has been in training since the beginning of this summer. When the semester started, Carey continued his volunteering at the fire department, while maintaining his class load.
