O. D.’s Rant 57-14

Donald Lierman Sports Editor Dearest reader, I have been maligned for too little or too many words in this, our last missive, of the book of O.D. I considered writhing or maybe just writing the word “THE” 666 times. But for you, dear faithful, I shall cry once more into the wilderness. Again, I am…

O. D.‘s Rant 57-13

Donald Lierman Sports Editor Cheers to MSU’s NCAA tournament play. The naysayers didn’t have them even picked to make it through the first round. However, without their best player they made a great run. Usually, I would never cheer for any team that defeated Sparty. However, the Butler Bulldogs come from a second tier conference…

O. D. ‘s Rant 57-12

Donald Lierman Sports Editor The SC4 men’s basketball team not only made college history this year by making it to the national tournament but performed not too shabbily there either. The Skippers dropped their first game at the NJCAA Division II National Tournament in Danville, Illinois to Lewis & Clark College (IL) by a score…

Health care reform is a mixed bag

Brian Johnston Editor in Chief This past Sunday, Congress passed the Health Care Reform Bill. All that’s needed is Barack Obama’s signature. And people are either far too happy or far too upset about it. For starters, there are the accusations of “socialism” coming from the conservatives. They see it as just another step toward…

O. D.‘s Rant 57-11

Donald Lierman Sports Editor Let ‘em play, let ‘em play, let ‘em play … Now that’s old time hockey. The Olympics provided a stage for what purists call the way the game should be played. Few whistles, hard hitting, tight checking… all that was left out was a few droppings of the gloves.  Oh, I…

Beaches and Beer

   Everyone wants to have an enjoyable spring break, and for many of us at SC4, this year could very well be our first college spring break experience. Why not make it memorable?    I personally have many years of travel experience under my belt, and have recently returned from a venture to Cozumel, Mexico…

Where there’s smoke, there’s litter

Brian Johnston Editor in Chief    As an editor for the Gazette, I spend a lot of time on campus. On a given weekday, I probably spend more of my waking time here than at my actual residence.    It can be said I consider SC4 my “home away from home.” As such, I have…

O. D.‘s Rant 57-10

Donald Lierman Sports Editor I nearly changed the name of the column to Rah Rah’s Rant. Because O.D. is excited. Pending Wednesday’s outcome with Oakland Community College, the 11 nationally ranked SC4 men’s basketball team could be playing for a slice of the MCCAA Eastern Conference pie. Saturday, February 20, the 5 ranked Mott Bears…

Tats-Who?

Brian Johnston Editor in Chief    After taking on comic book giant Marvel twice, then going toe-to-toe with rival game publisher SNK three times, Capcom is now duking it out with Japanese animation studio Tatsunoko in “Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars.”    “Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom,” like its predecessors, is an arcade-style fighter. Exclusive to the…
