All good things must come to an end. This is the reality I face as my time at the Royal Purple has come to a close. It’s tough to put this chapter of my life behind me, because working at this publication has meant so much to me. After all, when you’ve been at one place for so long, saying goodbye is the hardest thing to do.
It’s Game Day and Levell Coppage’s eyes are closed. He’s lying down and visualizing what will occur on the football field that day.

The P.E.A.C.E. organization at UW-Whitewater has joined the efforts in displaying their dislike for Walker’s proposed bill, as they will hold a gathering at 12:30 p.m. near the University Center’s Fiskum Gallery.
Phil Negri can’t believe where the time has gone, but still doesn’t like thinking about the finish line. “I’ve tried really hard not to,” Negri said. “[I’m] just trying to stay focused and not really worry about the end.” But the end of his basketball career is quickly approaching for the senior point guard.
