Murder. Mystery. Dinner. Combine the three and you have an ominously enjoyable festivity hosted by the Maryville College Gamers club. This past weekend, Oct. 28-29, MC Gamers hosted two murder mystery dinner party events – the Walgrave Astoria Costume Ball and the Ravenwood Masquerade. Both events came with separate mysteries, and attendance was limited to a small group of fifteen people in order to foster a more tightly-knit environment. Each participant was given a character role, as well as a few pre-game tasks to complete before the event. Highlighted in this article is the Ravenwood Masquerade event, a mystery centered around the locals of the fictional town of Bloodworth Falls.

With news of the rescindment of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) reaching people around the U.S., many have chosen to reach out to their communities and organize protests against the decision. One such protest took place on Sunday, Oct. 1, in the form of a march and rally organized by Knoxville Dreamers and Allies of Knoxville’s Immigrant Neighbors, in partnership with a few other organizations local to Knoxville. Supporters of DACA gathered at a courthouse in downtown Knoxville in preparation. Before the march began, Patricia Robledo, a representative from the Mayor’s Office, spoke on behalf of Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero on the issue of DACA as it pertains to those affected in the East Tennessee area. “[Mayor Rogero] supports a continuation of DACA and the right of DREAMers to fully participate in the life of our community and...

Reputable hurricane charities

In times of great disaster, many people are driven to help others affected by catastrophic events in any way possible. One of the most common ways to provide support and assistance, especially when distance acts as a barrier, is through the donation of money and supplies to relief funds.

This has prompted many people to search for other more reputable, and ideally local, charities and organizations. Below are some charities specific to the...
