Softball team on deck
Written by Tracy Mare'

For almost 25 years, Harding’s athletics department has been lacking one thing: a women’s softball team. Although Harding boasted a winning softball program in the 1980s, it unfortunately had to be terminated after other schools in the conference dropped their programs.

Beginning in the fall of 2013 however, Harding is re-creating the program under the guidance of athletics director Greg Harnden and head coach Phil Berry, in hopes of establishing it as a powerhouse in the Great American Conference.

Ready for retaliation
Written by Alexis Colleen Hosticka

When Bison football faced University of North Alabama last fall, they fell short by eight points.

But Harding has a chance to retaliate on Saturday when they take on UNA on the road for their first game of the season. Last season, second-ranked UNA scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, taking away the Bison’s six-point lead.

Harding is 5-7 against UNA, but both teams are expected to be stronger this year. This is especially true for the Bison defense, where seven of its nine returning starters are seniors.

After 32 years working at KATV Channel 7 in Little Rock, Harding alumnus Tim Hamilton has returned to the university this fall to take on a newly created position in the department of communication as multimedia producer.

Hamilton will focus on Harding sports production — overseeing the coverage of games, staffing and helping expand sports programming for TV16.

“I think [TV16’s] vision is just a matter of taking the programming of Harding sports kind of to a new level, just doing more games, using more cameras at a game, working in graphics, ... more instant replay capability during the games,” Hamilton said. “It’s like taking it up a notch.”

How to prepare for the Nov. 6 elections
Written by Lyndsey Nicole Ruble

After the countless debates, the neighborly strife over yard signs and both dramatic and harsh TV campaign advertisements, the 2012 election will all come down to a vote.

The youth vote will be of much importance in the coming election. Unfortunately, many young people are not well informed or ready to intelligently cast votes for choices that will affect them nationally and locally.

It is vital for students to know how to vote as well as who and what they are voting for.

Film captures exploration, stories of HULA program
Written by Holly V Bohnett

An adventure that lasts three months is hard to tell in a matter of minutes. A common question during the first week of school is, “How was your summer?” The response is usually, “It was great,” and then both parties move on with their lives. But once stories are told and Facebook pictures are shown, the interaction lasts longer than a walk-by greeting in the cafeteria.

In order to tell a story few have experienced, the never-before-seen HULA documentary will follow a dinner reception Friday, Sept. 7, at 9 p.m., at the Carmichael Community Center. The documentary will play on a large theater screen from a projector to incorporate the outdoors aspect of the Latin America program. In the case of rain, the premiere will take place in the Administration Auditorium.
