Whoa dude, school is starting already? Whoa dude, be nice! Okay, OK, all right, sure. Yes, school is really starting already. It seems the older I get, the quicker the summers go by. But I digress.

First of all, I would like to thank the Hawkeye for giving me a spot in their award winning newspaper each edition.
