Honestly, I don’t know how we made it, but we did. That may sound pretty negative, but I do not think people understand what it takes to create a newspaper every week. It’s tough...

Hello, Eastern. I am the new editor-in-chief of The Easterner. First, I would like to say that it has been an insane year at The Easterner. We have had many ups and downs but we made it to the last issue, the one you are reading today.
