From the Editor
It’s here and then it’s gone.
Spring break never seems to last long enough. You’re anticipating
it for weeks, then all of a sudden, it’s Sunday night and back to school
and the real world Monday morning. The good news is, only six weeks
The rest of the semester will fly by and then it’s sweet summer time.
Some will be moving on to full-time jobs, some will have summer
school, and others will take the time to travel or relax.
Whatever you do, try to make the most of your time and do things
that make you happy, because, what else is there in this world?

If you are anything like me, you spent your Spring break stressprocrastinating.
1. Stress-procrastinate (verb): to watch Netflix, scroll Instagram
countless times or otherwise waste time even though you know you
have important homework or work to do. Instead of procrastinating
with ease, you do so stressfully, with your daunting work looming in
the back of your mind.
That is essentially all I did the entire break. Do some homework.
Take an undeserved break to watch Netflix. Stress about all the
homework I still had left. Repeat. At least it snowed while I was home
so that the outside world had no chance of taunting me and tempting
me to forget about all of my homework. Perhaps some of you had a
similar Spring break experience to me, but for your sake I hope you
spent it procrastinating regularly with no worries in the world.

Nez Perce County and Idaho
“Feel the Bern”
By Andrew Baron
of The Pathfinder
Senator Bernie Sanders beat
Hillary Clinton at the Nez Perce
county Democratic Caucus,
scoring 9 of 3 delegates for the
county, with a voting tally of
around 400 (Sander) to 150
(Clinton). The caucus was held
at Jennifer Jr High School in
Lewiston on Mar. 22 with over
five hundred in attendance. Nez
Perce County was one of many
caucuses across the state, with the
caucus in Ada county breaking
national records for the number
of caucusers in Boise.
Even before the day of the
caucus supporters had lined up
across the Boise State University
campus to attend the Sanders rally
at the Taco Bell Arena. College
students, Vietnam War veterans
and even labor unions, all turned
out to support Sanders and a
petition to “Get Big Money Out
of Politics” was also circulating
among the awaiting rally goers.
All counties except Lewis
county sent more delegates to
Boise for Sanders than Clinton.
Results from Idaho totaled 78%
for Sanders and the remainder
for Clinton. Idaho will now
send its 23 delegates-- 18 in favor
of Sanders and 5 for Clinton-onto the national convention in
Philadelphia this July, where a
candidate will be officially given
the national party’s nomination.
Utah joined Idaho
in favoring Sanders, while
Clinton swept to victory in
Arizona. Clinton still maintains
a lead over Sanders with 1712
to Sanders’ 1011. However, with
2382 delegates required for either
to claim victory, and 712 super
delegates who could change their
vote at any time, the likely winner
is still impossible to call.

Music review
Charlie Puth creates tear-jerker with his song, “See You Again” in “Furious 7”
By Amanda Wallace
of The Pathfinder
Everybody has that one album
or song that they fall in love with
and just play on repeat over and
over again. It basically becomes
your anthem, after all the times
you’ve listened to it. For me,
that song is “See You Again” by
Charlie Puth, ft. Wiz Khalifa. This
song played during the credits of
the recent “Furious 7” that they
dedicated to Paul Walker. It’s
definitely one you might tear up
over. The lyrics really hit home
for me, and I’m sure many other
people can relate.
Charlie Puth is an upcoming
artist, who has made a
considerable amount of hit
songs after his collaboration with
Khalifa on “See You Again.” His
debut album, “Nine Track Mind”
features many more collaborations
including Meghan Trainor on his
summer hit, “Marvin Gaye” and
Selena Gomez on “We Don’t
Talk Anymore.” Puth was first
discovered on Youtube by Ellen
DeGeneres. He was attending
Berklee College of Music,
studying to become a jazz pianist
at the time he was discovered. He
graduated a year ago, although
he did change his focus from jazz
to pop. He moved cross-country

chances and put himself out
there, and lucky for him “See You

Puth’s song was the perfect fit for
All of Puth’s songs on his debut

is about two exes who aren’t on
speaking terms; they were once
close and now they are nothing.
Both people of the relationship
in the song are still reminiscing
about the times they had, trying
to figure out what went wrong.
This breakup song offers an
upbeat track that could make
anyone start to sway on the dance
floor, with a breezy, tropical
house beat. This really sets this
breakup song apart from others
of the past. Puth and Gomez’
voices blend so beautifully and
magically together; it makes you
yearn for the “what might’ve
been.” The song gets you deeply
involved and intrigued in the
story behind it. The rest of the
songs on the album are just as
good, with rich, soulful pop, rock
and R&B sounds and lyrics. Let’s
just say, Charlie Puth has put a
spell on the music industry.

Austin Johnson named
Corban Head Coach
Lewis-Clark State
Press Release
Over the last six seasons,
the Lewis-Clark State College
men’s basketball team won
134 games, made three
trips to the NAIA National
Tournament, won three
Frontier Conference Regular
Season Championships and
two tournament titles. Every
year Austin Johnson was on
the sideline, but that will all
change next season as the
long-time Warriors assistant
has been named the Head
Coach at Corban University.
“There is no way to
gratitude for the past six years
spent at Lewis Clark State
College,” said Johnson. “I
would like to thank Lewis
Clark State and the LC Valley
community for an amazing,
life-changing 6 years. I was
fortunate to work with
unbelievable administrators,
faculty, staff, and students.
I would like to specifically
thank Brandon Rinta for
giving me an opportunity
to grow as a person and as
a coach. He was the best
mentor I could have asked for
as I developed my coaching
career. I also thank every
player that took a chance on
us as we began building a great
program at LC State and for
their commitment and trust.
The athletic administration
allowed us to flourish and gave
us every resource necessary to
build a championship team.
Thanks to everyone involved
along the way.”
Johnson begins full time as
the Corban men’s basketball
coach on April 1. Thanks in
large part to his recruiting
efforts and guidance LCSC
had a record setting season.
Lewis-Clark State set program
marks for 3-point field goals
made (370), 3-point field goals
attempted (369), 3-point field
goal percentage (.421) and
points scored (2,985). The
Warriors also won their first
national tournament game
in 12 years.
“I want to thank Austin
for pouring his life into this
program for the past six
years,” said LC State Head
Coach Brandon Rinta.
“Who he is as a person and
a coach is one of the big
reasons we have been able
to have some success over
the last four years. All of us
are extremely excited for the
opportunity he has earned
at Corban. We are going
to miss him here, but he is
more than ready to be a head
coach. It was just a matter of
time before he moved on to
his own program.”
During his tenure as
assistant and associate head
coach, five players have earned
NAIA All-American honors
and numerous others have
garnered All-Conference and
All-Academic recognition.
“Austin Johnson will be a
terrific head basketball coach
at Corban University,” said
LC Athletics Director Gary
Picone. “His strong character
qualities combined with his
passion to coach and educate
young people will be obvious
from his first day on the job.
He has made a significant
contribution to the success
of our men’s basketball
program, and I expect he will
make an immediate impact
at Corban University.”
Before coming to LCSC,
Johnson spent two years
as a graduate assistant
coach at Western Illinois
University in Macomb, Ill.

“Far Cry” prequel “Far Cry Primal” lives up
to its successors
By Andrew Baron
of The Pathfinder
Released by Ubisoft back
in Feb., “Far Cry Primal” is
the successor in a long line
of critically acclaimed action
adventure games. As a prequel
though, it turns the clock back
a bit further than most prequels
have. Set in the ancient land
of Oros in 10,000 BC, the
Montreal team at Ubisoft
took some liberty in recycling
map elements from Kyrat in
“Far Cry 4,”, but did a good
job of differentiating it from
the previous game. In fact, the
game play was so engaging

“Thinking Like a Social
Scientist” talk featuring
Professor Craig Parsons on
April 8

Thinking like a Social Scientist:
a 2 ½ hour workshop covering the
logic of quantitative, qualitative,
and interpretive methods
The scientific study of human
action and society, or “social
science,” is not just for scientists.
Everyone studies action and
society as part of normal life. We
observe general patterns, which
social scientists call “quantitative”
methods. We construct historical
explanations of why particular
things happened, which social
methods. We interpret social
norms, practices and beliefs
around us, which social scientists
call “interpretive” methods.
Researchers do these things
especially explicitly and carefully,
but their methods are still just the
ways in which everyone thinks
all the time. Thus “thinking like
a social scientist” does not mean
becoming a stuffy academic. It
just means becoming a more
conscious thinker.
Many kinds of non-academic
careers directly employ the
methods of social-science research,
though often they don’t realize it.
For example, consider how police
and policy-makers approach
problems of crime. Police datacrunchers sort through lots of
quantitative data to look for
patterns of crime. Detectives act
like qualitative researchers in
trying to solve particular cases
of crime. Criminal lawyers,
activists and politicians act like
interpretive social scientists when
they ask questions like, “Why is
this a crime? Is it a serious crime?
Should it be a crime?”
This workshop on April 8 will
be from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in
SGC rm 204, and it introduces
students to these different modes
of thinking in everyday life,
and shows how “thinking like a
social scientist” can sharpen our
thinking for a variety of contexts.

Professor Parsons is from the University of Oregon and will
give students and faculty fresh perspectives on the social sciences.

Zanon’s hot bat helps LCSC sweep OIT again
Lewis-Clark State College
Press Release
Jacob Zanon drove in seven
runs and helped the Lewis-Clark
State College baseball team pound
out 29 hits as the Warriors swept
a doubleheader from Oregon
Institute of Technology for the
second straight day with 18-3 and
5-2 victories on Sunday.
The sweep moves LCSC to
30-5 on the season and 16-3 in
NAIA West play, while Oregon
Tech falls to 2-18 and 11-28
overall. The sweep also helps
LCSC finish a grueling 13-game
road stretch over 11 days with a
10-3 record.
As in Saturday’s sweep, the
first contest on Sunday didn’t go
the full nine inning as the contest
was stopped after the eighth
because of the 10-run rule.
The first three hitters in the
Warrior lineup – Cabe Reiten,
Robert Smith and Zanon, were
a combined 9-for-14 with 10
RBI and eight runs scored in
the opener. Zanon was a perfect
5-for-5 at the plate with four RBI
and three runs scored. Smith
went 3-for-5 with three RBI and
three runs, while Reiten was
1-for-4 with three RBI and scored
twice. Hayden Meier, hitting
fifth, went 3-for-5 with three RBI,
while Cooper Golby was 4-for-4
with two runs scored and an RBI.
He also had three doubles in the

apiece in the first two innings to
take a 4-1 lead. Meier had a tworun single in the first, while Smith

After OIT scored twice in
the bottom of the third to cut
the margin to 4-3, the Warriors
scored four in the top of the
fourth. Reiten brought in the
first run on a sacrifice fly, while
Zanon and J.J. Robinson hit
back-to-back RBI doubles. Meier
singled in the final run for the
8-3 lead.
LCSC added three runs in the
seventh on a two-out, two-run
double by Reiten and an RBI
single from Smith.
The Warriors then went wild
with a seven-run eighth inning.
LCSC had five hits and two
walks in the inning and also took
advantage of two OIT errors.
An error allowed the first two
runs to score, while Smith drew
a bases-loaded walk to force in
a run. Zanon then doubled in
two, while Esteban Bastidas had
an RBI sacrifice fly. The second
error of the inning allowed the
final run to score.
LCSC starter Shane Desmond
gave up seven hits and three
earned runs in his three inning of
work and recorded one strikeout.
Peter Irvin pitched the final five
innings to pick up the win to
stand 2-1 on the season. Irvin
allowed three hits and struck out
two. He also faced just 17 batters,
two over the minimum, over the
five innings.
The 18 runs and 20 hits
were both season highs for the
Warriors. LCSC scored 17 runs
in Saturday’s 17-2 triumph over
OIT, and the Warriors previous
high in hits was 19, which also
came against OIT but in February
at Harris Field. The 16 RBI tied a
season high.
The second contest was close
throughout as the Warriors
used three pitchers in a predetermined three inning split.
Henry McAree allowed just two
hits and two walks with two
strikeouts to start the game, and
Jake Barnett allowed three hits

and a walk with two strikeouts
in his three innings. He also got
the win to improve to 5-1 overall.
Kevin Hamann pitched the final
three innings and allowed five
hits and two runs, but struck out
four. He earned his first save of
the season.
Zanon finished the second
game 1-for-5 with two RBI, while
Dylan Tashjian was 3-for-4 with
two RBI. Zanon also stole a base
and is now 19-of-19 on the season
in that category.
Zanon also finished the four
game series 10-for-16 with eight
RBI and eight runs scored.
The Warriors broke a scoreless
tie in the second game when
Zanon homered to left to open
the fourth. It was his seventh of
the season, which has him second
on the team. Julian Ramon hit
a two-out single and Tashjian
picked up his first RBI with a
double down the right-field line.
LCSC added two more in the
fifth for a 4-0 lead. Chase Hafer
reached on a bunt single and
moved to third on a double by
Reiten. Smith followed with an
RBI single and then Zanon’s
fielder’s choice grounder brought
in the other run.
Oregon Tech got on the board
in the seventh with the help of an
error, but LCSC answered in the
top of the eighth for a 5-1 lead.
Meier was hit by a pitch with
one out and scored on Tashjian’s
second double of the game.
OIT added its final run in
the bottom of the eighth but left
