The email went on to say: “sorry, spoiled millennial [expletive], but seniors have worked and PAID FOR their SS and Medicare.” I don’t dispute the middle epithet: I am indeed a millennial.

It’s a glimpse into the Wildcats’ future, which couldn’t be much brighter. Although Weber will start seniors Davion Berry, Kyle Tresnak and Jordan Richardson in Friday’s tournament opener against Arizona, coach Randy Rahe’s rotation also includes four youngsters who form his next foundation.

By far the most experienced Aggie, Medlin was there for some of the Aggies’ best seasons. He is among the last Utah State players to have gone to the Big Dance. He’s seen Stew Morrill’s 500th win as well as his 600th. The Texan is strongly linked to the Aggies’ history. And he’s hoping he and his fellow seniors aren’t yet done carving their place in it. “It’s just one of those thin...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The politically dicey move affecting a private insurance alternative highly popular with seniors immediately touched off an election-year fight.
