Spring is without a doubt my favorite time of year. Maybe it's just because I grew up in Salt Lake City, where you get to experience four seasons, or maybe it's because I think that nothing good can come out of three-plus months of below freezing temperatures, but springtime is quite possibly the best...

I've sat down to write this letter half a dozen times, but it's always seemed like an impossible task.

Welcome to the first issue of The Circuit. The Pioneer is a continuously evolving entity. Every issue is a product not only of the current staff, but of those who have come before and the contributions that they made to the paper's development.

Why do we read newspapers? I suspect that each of you will have a different answer to this question; I'll give you mine.
