Food for thought

  I was reading the Spring ’05 issue of Hilltopics, and decided that I would write something about my memory of fall football. I was the last Homecoming queen for the final season of football. I never had the honor of crowning a new queen, but I had a great experience as the Homecoming queen.

Regarding the article written by Deb Erickson in “Notebook,” I agree obesity is an urgent health care issue. However, I would like to add something to the discussion of obesity. I think one of the important factors to consider is the possibility of humans ingesting growth hormones that are fed to the cattle, by consuming beef products. If articles have been written about the concern regarding ingesting the antibiotics fed to cattle, why not look at the growth hormones? Anyway, it’s food for thought.

I enjoy reading Hilltopics. It has become a very professional looking journal with interesting articles and photos. Keep up the good work!

“Academic Attraction” and achievements

  I enjoyed Nancy Ridgeway’s “Academic Attraction.” Ridgeway’s clever pairing of stories of loving relationships that formed at Bradley with brief passages on alumni’s careers in relationship building and healing allowed me to reflect fondly on social life at Bradley while allowing me to take pride in the achievements of our alumni.
