No break in cold temperatures By Andrea Lannom

News Editor Students around the region woke up to a shock with snow covering roadways, cars and sidewalks. The weather even caused Concord University to be on an inclement weather schedule Monday and Tuesday. Although many people may be longing for sun and warmer temperatures, John Sicora, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston, says temperatures will warm up and snow will taper off but it will be brief. Monday started off with light snow showers and cold temperatures. Sicora says the Athens region could expect at least an inch or so more of snow by the end of this weekend. “That’s when we’re expecting another snowstorm but it depends on

which way the system goes right now,” he said. The system could just dump rain on the region but accompanied by colder temperatures into Sunday evening, could turn to snow, Sicora said.

“Even with a slight warm-up, it’s still going to be cold through the weekend,” John Sicora, meteorologist, said.

Initially, through last Saturday and Sunday, a “Clipper System” swept the area, bringing moisture from the Great Lakes. Winds brought the snow and moisture into the region, he said.

ity, leading to the purchase of a dehumidifying unit. Before the problem was fixed, however, the flooring in the building was damaged and had to be replaced. Despite its previous issues, however, University Point is now ready for use. “The building will be used for alumni, advancement, and University events. There have already been two weddings held in the facility,” Becker said. “It is a beautiful facility that will serve Concord for many years.”

This week’s SGA meeting was the last SGA meeting of the semester. All organizations that currently do not have voting rights will not be eligible to receive funding in the spring semester. Four more organizations lost their voting rights this week. Those organizations are BCM, CSWO, Lambda Iota Gamma, and Amtgard. All organizations that had not used up all of their allocated money were requested to see Attorney General Adam Pauley as soon as possible. The Safety Committee received a complaint that one of the phones in the Wooddell parking lot is not working. The complaint did not state weather it was a payphone or an emergency police phone. If the complaint was about the payphone, the Safety Committee will see what they can do to have it activated or removed, and if it is an emergency police phone, the committee will talk to the campus police department about fixing the phone. The Publications Committee is in the process of recovering information on accessing the old SGA website. As soon as the old website can be accessed, it will be updated. The SGA’s facebook page is currently posting the weekly minutes, along with other updates. Continued on page 2...

and concert band,” he said. “The Campus Beautiful” will ring with the sounds of the Marsh Memorial Carillon 30 minutes prior to the 6 p.m. concert. Concord carillonneur Jesse Ratcliffe will perform the festive prelude on the world-class instrument. A reception will follow the “Sounds of the Season” performance in the Fine Arts Center lobby. A special guest will make an appearance for the children in attendance. The community is invited to attend this event. There is no admission charge.

30th annual Beckley Christmas Parade

Temperatures will warm up briefly starting Thursday but Sicora says the warm-up won’t be by much. “Even with this slight warm-up, it’s still going to be cold through the weekend,” he said. “We will see highs in the upper 30s and lows in the 20s.” So when can the region expect sunshine? The sun will briefly peek out on Thursday but after that, not any time soon, Sicora said. If snow does happen to hit this weekend, Sicora says motorists should be extra careful during snowstorms. Visability issues and snow drifts could prevail through the weekend. “It’s just common sense but if they haven’t gotten the roads cleared off, motorists should be careful,” he said.

The Division of Business is offering a NEW elective course for the upcoming 2011 spring semester... CRN 20758, FIN 301, Principles of Investing, 3 cr., Section 01, MWF 12:00-12:50pm, RH 315A, A. Zagorchev. This is a survey course of investments for non-business and business majors. The course will focus on discussion of investment issues and investment applications. No prerequisite.

The purpose of this is to address questions that exist regarding the inclement weather schedule. In the past, staff was expected to arrive at their regular start time (usually 8 a.m.) even though classes were delayed from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. due to inclement weather. Concerned about safety, Dr. Aloia and the Cabinet have now indicated that staff are not required to be at work until 10 a.m. unless they are essential personnel. Your supervisor will indicate to you if you are essential personnel and, if so, the time that you are to report to work. This change, however, raises questions about how the two hour delay should be handled in relation to our 37.5 hour work week. I spoke with legal counsel for the HEPC today. Series 38, section 13.3 reads as follows: Absences from work due to weather conditions other than during a declared emergency must be charged against accumulated annual leave, accumulated compensatory time, or the employee must be removed from the payroll for the time in question. Where institutions employ the “floating holiday” concept, the holiday record may be charged. Sick leave may not be charged for absence due to weather. Time lost from work may be made up in the same work week at the discretion of the employee’s supervisor. HEPC counsel does not view an inclement weather delay as an emergency closure. Therefore, here is how supervisors and staff should handle the situation: If Concord is on an inclement weather delay, staff employees are not required to report until 10 a.m. unless they are designated as essential personnel. The staff employee can make up the lost time during the same work week. In other words, if a staff member normally starts work at 8 a.m., but comes in at 10 a.m. due to inclement weather, they need to make up those 2 hours during that week. Alternatively, a staff employee can charge the two hours to accumulated annual leave or accumulated comp time. Student Government Association meetings are held Wednesdays at 4 p.m. in the Stateroom of the Student Center. All students are welcome to attend.

Reidmiller presents Greek vase painting Press Release

Dr. Lauri Reidmiller presented “Greek Vase Painting” at the fall 2010 West Virginia Art Education Association State Conference in Huntington, West Virginia in October. The presentation focused on the history, processes and techniques used to create Athenian Red Figure and Black Figure vases. This interactive presentation also provided the art educators in attendance with methods to integrate these processes into their existing art curriculum. In addition, the participants created their own ceramic paintings.

Assisting with the presentation were two Concord University’s Art Education students; Amber Blankenship and Denise Ward. “I always provide my students with the opportunity to assist me at conferences” stated Dr. Reidmiller. Since beginning the Concord University’s West Virginia Art Education Association Student Chapter last year, Dr. Reidmiller reports that its members have attended both state and national conferences. “Presenting and attending these conferences have enabled my students to become actively involved in their pro-

fession”, noted Dr. Reidmiller. “Joining the chapter has also given the art education students an avenue to become affiliated with a professional organization and the opportunity to network with educator from around the country. The students have gained leadership skills through the experience of starting a new organization on campus”, stated Dr. Reidmiller. The student chapter is presently fundraising for a trip to the National Art Education Association 2011 Conference in Seattle, Washington.

You’ll be addicted to Love and Other Drugs By Jessica Fowler A&E Editor

A free-spirited artist named Maggie, played by Anne Hathaway, and a charming ladies man named Jamie, played by Jake Gyllenhaal create a connection that is full of passion. Love and Other Drugs is a movie that will make you laugh as well as pull on your heart strings. Jamie is a pharmaceutical sales representative which leads to him meeting Maggie. At this time, all he really cares about is sex, selling pharmaceutical drugs (he especially wants to take over Viagra, which leads to hilarious events that take place at a “pajama party”), and climbing to the top of his company. At first, Jamie seems like a real douchebag in the eyes of women, but he really surprises you throughout the movie. Maggie seems to be a typical guy’s dream; all she wants

to do is have sex with no commitment whatsoever. But as the movie progresses, she truly wants more than just

sex with Jamie. Maggie has a medical condition that has made her perspective on life and relationships very dif-

ferent from many women. I was actually really surprised when I saw Love and Other Drugs. I saw Hathaway on a couple of different talk shows and it seemed like it would be full of nudity; that’s all they would really talk about when it came to discussing the movie. Maybe it was just the fact that she is seen nude in a couple of scenes because there really was not as much nudity as expected. She has come a long way from Mia in the Princess Diaries. Its purpose and reason of showing how two people can connect like Maggie and Jamie even under the circumstances is enough to go see this movie. It is so realistic and did not feel like a cliché romantic comedy. Overall, I will give Love and Other Drugs an A+.

Students learn Suminagashi art Press Release

The books on display at the Student Union were created through a collaborative partnership between Dr. Lauri Reidmiller and Paula Elliott. The students from the Art 224: Art Education Studio I and the Education 318: Content Area Reading classes learned about the ancient Japanese art form of Suminagashi. Suminagashi is the ancient art of floating colors of ink on water. This art form is believed to date back to the 12th century. This process involves dropping sumi ink onto water and moving the ink around to create a design. When a desired design is created it is captured on paper by making a contact print. Legend states that this art form was given to a man named Jiyemon Hiroba because of his loyalty to the Katsuga shrine. Today, Suminagashi is better known as marbleizing. Each student was asked to use their book as an avenue to illustrate a story about themselves through the use of the suminagashi paper, photos, visuals, quotes, lyrics, and their own words. The students also learned about the process of bookmaking and binding through this project.

“A Very Sunny Christmas Special” is the title of the straight-to-DVD, not suitable for prime time television, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” Christmas Special. As the previous sentence suggests, it’s very dirty, ridiculously inappropriate, and extremely hilarious! It’s also not one for the children. Before watching the Christmas special, I had never seen the show. This made it somewhat tough to understand at first because I didn’t know the characters. It did not take very long, however, for me to find myself laughing uncontrollably. Each year, Frank, played by the great Danny DeVito, buys amazing gifts for his two—now middle aged—children, Dennis and Dee (which it turns out are not really his), and then keeps the gifts for himself. This Christmas, Dennis and Dee decide to try to teach Frank the true spirit of Christmas by helping him meet the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. What follows is one of the most hilarious movies that I have ever

seen. From DeVito being sewn into a leather sofa to his messed up cartoon Christmas world, this part of the story will keep you in stitches. If the DeVito storyline was not funny enough, simultaneously told is the reflections of Mac and Charlie, the two other main characters. They recall their childhood Christmases, throwing rocks at trains. One recalls a tradition where “your family goes to

your neighbor’s house and opens their presents and then runs when the next family walks in. That’s why there were never any presents when we got home.” The other’s mother, who

turns out to be a harlot, received Christmas presents for her son from men—all dressed like Santa—who she provided a “service” to. They both deal with the realizations that their parents were criminals and prostitutes and that their Christmas memories as children actually sucked. It gets to the point that Charlie actually bites Santa’s jugular. I won’t ruin the ending for those out there who intend to watch, but the Christmas special will go down as one of the greatest ever in my book. If you’re not interested in something that pushes the limits, then this is not a Christmas movie for you. It is extremely vulgar at times and quite profane, but the comedy is superbly funny, outlandish, and at times, over the line. This is not the typical Christmas movie and it is definitely not for the typical Christmas audience. But for those who are looking for an hour of nonstop laughs, A Very Sunny Christmas hits the nail on the head. Five out of five stars, but leave the little ones upstairs; this is a comedy for a mature audience.

Project ROAR announced By Dustin Blankenship Staff Writer

Dr. Aloia announced at the start of the semester Project ROAR—Restore Our Aging to Amazing Rooms. The idea is to have alumni donate to the university to restore the rooms they stayed in while living at Concord as students. The project will begin in the towers and then potentially move on to other resident halls. President Aloia has been soliciting help from Greek organizations to recruit their

alumni to help kick off the program. He spoke with the Phi Sigma Epsilon alumni back in August and met with the national fraternities’ (IFC) and the national sororities’ (NPC) representatives this past month to discuss the program and announce an incentives program for the organizations with the most donations collected. According to Dr. Aloia, “Project ROAR is a great opportunity to get alumni back involved on campus in a big way.” There are several dif-

ferent levels of donation available and different incentives for each level of donation. Donors are asked for donations of any amount but will receive a plaque with their name on the door of a room for $1000 and will have a suite named after them for $15,000. Donors can also donate to a specific room, floor, or to Project ROAR general. For more information concerning Project ROAR, contact Alicia Besenyei at abesenyei@concord.edu

Students try to beat the odds By Zack Sowder Sports Editor

Photo contributed by Lance McDaniel Shown is an excerpt from the Project ROAR pamphlet, available at the Office of Advancement.

With a graduation rate across the state that sits around 15% for West Virginia college students, something had to be done. If students could not graduate in four years, then they would accumulate plenty of debt and lost time on their dreams. Those facts hit home for a group of students who wanted to make a difference. These students created the Beat the Odds organization and put on a forum with a knowledgeable panel of guests to try and guide students to beat the odds and graduate in four years. The panel was comprised of Coach Mike Kellar, Dr. Karen Griffee, Chief Mark Stella, Dr. Marjie Flanigan, and ESPN Radio personality Chris Meadows.

Coach Kellar started off the forum going through the structure and guidelines his players have in order for them to succeed. He mentioned that the more structure, the more success in most cases. The next speaker was Chief Stella, who told students to make the right decision when you are facing a tough choice, as your future truly depends on it. Dr. Flanigan talked about how to succeed in advising, and trying to pick your major early in your college career. She also pointed out that scheduling out your entire career is a good thing, and not just to schedule classes when it comes time each semester. Dr. Griffee spoke of how stress does affect each and every one of us, but that stress can be used as a motivator. When you move to-

wards your goal, the closer you get the lower the stress. The last speaker was Chris Meadows, a Concord graduate who came back to Concord after a short stint at West Virginia University. His message was simple: get it done. Do what you need to do today, not tomorrow. The Beat the Odds organization hopes to have made an impact, and hopes to have made an impression on underclassmen that you can graduate in four years, but you have to truly work hard to beat the odds. The Beat the Odds organization was comprised of Zack Sowder, Danielle Pye, Cindy Steele, Chris Slater, Marcus Wambich, Zach Atkins, Kayla Osbourne, Martha Delaney, and Brandon Link.

Concord overcomes Seton Hill

By Kyle Cooper Concord SID

Concord’s Men’s Basketball team spotted visiting Seton Hill an early 16-point lead in their WVIAC contest Saturday afternoon. From then on, the Mountain Lions were much less hospitable hosts. CU overcame a 27-13 deficit to defeat the Griffins 86-75 at the Carter Center. It was the Mountain Lions’ third straight win and first in the WVIAC, improving their record to 3-4, 1-3. SHU suffered its third straight loss to drop to 3-4, 1-3. After falling behind 27-11, Concord scored 13 unanswered points to draw within 27-24 with 5:25 left in the 1st half. The contest remained close until the Mountain Lions went on another rally with 12:53 remaining in regu-

lation -- a layup by Javaughn Acree-Manuel (left) gave Concord the lead for good, at 50-49, sparking an 18-5 outburst that put the Mountain Lions up 66-54 with 9:00 left. Seton Hill would get no closer than seven points after that. Acree-Manuel – the reigning WVIAC Co-Player of the Week -- continued his impressive season with a game-high 37 points on 1524 shooting. It was his 4th game of 30 or more points. He also added six rebounds, five assists and three steals. Gentry Shrewsbury (right) went for a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds. Matt Miller led four SHU players in double figures with 20 points. Seton Hill shot .609 (14-23) in the 1st half and .526 (30-57) for the game. Concord was .406 (13-32) in the 1st half, but

Griffins embarked on their run. Fueled by five Concord turnovers, the 4:06 outburst staked Seton Hill to a 62-61 lead. A Jolysa Brown basket gave Concord the lead back, but Jordan Burkes’ driving layup and Clare Berenato’s three-point shot put SHU ahead 67-63. A three-pointer from Sidney Lindsey drew CU within 6766 with 4:27 to go, but that’s as close as Concord would get. In the 2nd half, Seton Hill shot .550 (11-20) from the field while Concord was .375 (9-24). For the game, Seton Hill was 11-26 (.423) from three point range and outrebounded CU 36-27. Camisha Alexander topped Concord with 28 points, shooting 9-18 from

the field. Lindsey added 17 points and Brown 11. Burkes led Seton Hill with 28 points, including a 13-14 performance from the free throw line. Up next for the Lady Lions is an important early-season WVIAC matchup at Glenville State Tuesday, December 7. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 pm at the Lilly Gymnasium in Glenville, WV. The game will be broadcast on ESPN Radio 102.3 The Ticket, starting with the “Mountain Lion Preview Show” at 5:00. A link to The Ticket’s audio webcast can be found on the Women’s Basketball homepage at www.cumountainlions.com.

Opinions

Imagine...

By MariLuz Diaz Opinions Editor Imagine spending thousands of dollars a semester to attend the university of your choice; a school that, to you, stands above the rest. Now imagine that same school you adore, smacking you across the face by building a large-scale project that many of the students did not want to begin with. I’m sure many of you readers know exactly what I’m referring to: University Point. On one hand, University point opens the students to a non-denominational chapel so they can practice their reli-

gion safely and close to their dorm rooms. On the other hand, why the hell did they spend millions of dollars on a building we don’t need when there is so much good that that money could have gone to, but I’ll get to that later. When students leave their homes for college, they forfeit many of the luxuries that they once enjoyed. Probably one of the “luxuries” that people pay the least bit of attention to is a place of worship. Many people do not take this into account when thinking about their school. After all, we just want to get out of here as fast as possible, right? When I came to Concord for the Open House two years ago, I made sure to check out whether there was a place for Catholic students to go. I was instantly shown the Newman Center where they hold mass every Sunday evening for those students who stay on campus on the weekends. I thought it was really great that there was a place within walking distance of the school where I could attend the mass. One thing I didn’t take into consideration: walking that far in the cold/snow. How many students actually like to walk two to four

blocks to their place of worship in the snow? Not many. I know if you’re hard-core religious, then you’ll say that it’s worth it. But, you won’t find this girl walking that far and getting frostbite and then having an asthma attack. So, with that in mind, I like the idea of having a place that’s actually on campus that I can go to and pray. On the other hand, I feel like it wasn’t very smart of the University (a state institution) to build a religious building on campus. They shouldn’t have used money that could have gone elsewhere. Why not build another dorm hall (preferably co-ed)? Why not use that money for people who need extra financial aid/ scholarships? Why not buy laptops for all the students? (Hey, it could happen.) What happened to the separation of church and state? I seriously feel like the university has more stuff to deal with than giving religious fanatics a place to call “home.” But, that’s just my opinion. Well, again Concord, let me know what you think. Email me at diazm30@mycu. concord.edu and have an amazing Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Holiday break.

Salvation Army angel trees are a great way to give back

By Jessica Fowler A&E Editor

It’s that time of year again for the Salvation Army Christmas Angel Program. For those of you who are not familiar with this program, there are Christmas trees set up with tags hanging on them. Each tag represents a child between the ages of 0 and 13 and provides information about the child’s clothing sizes and also includes suggestions on appropriate toys for a child at that age. When you choose your Angel, you are to remove the bottom portion of the tag, leaving the top portion on the tree so that the Salvation Army can identify that it has been selected. The tag also identifies whether your Angel is a girl or a boy. I have participated in the

Christmas Angel Program for years. Personally, I love the program and think that everyone should donate to the Salvation Army at least once per year. Not only can you donate to the Salvation Army for this particular program but you can donate year-round. I usually go through my clothes at least twice per year and I usually donate a bag full of clothes to the Salvation Army. There are many ways to help out children and families in the community. To learn more about the Salvation Army, go to www. salvationarmyusa.org. The deadline for all gifts and donations at Concord

will be due in the Student Center by December 9th to allow them to be picked up by the Salvation Army.

Ask Ava!

Dear Ava, Recently, my girlfriend joined an on-campus sorority. Since joining, she has changed considerably. As far as I’m concerned, I’m not a big fan of this change. Some of my buddies have noticed similar changes from their girlfriends as well. What should I do? Signed, They Took my Sister

Dear Sister-less, First of all, it is great to hear from our male readership and secondly, your pen name made me laugh! College can be a big transition for someone, especially so for young ladies It is one of the few times in life where a person can redefine who they want to be in this great big world. If you really want to stay with this young lady, it is going to require patience and understanding. Often when a young lady joins a sorority, she is looking to increase her social

status, form friendships that will last a lifetime, and become a part of something larger than herself. On the other hand, she may just be looking for some cool people to hang out with. Based on what you have told me, it is not enough to discern the depth of the reasoning behind her choice. Now that we have established why she may have joined, let’s look at a few things you can do to support her as well as what you both need to do to make your relationship last. Calmly and rationally express the changes that you have noticed since she has gone Greek. Provide specific examples to her of what you have observed that has been “out of character” for her. Keep a cool temper and let her know that your intention is not to start an argument, but merely just to discuss what you have noticed. It is likely that after you bring it to her attention that she will fix things on her own. You may, however,

need to be patient with her if she is reluctant to acknowledge her changed attitude. If you are dropped into a society of people where it is acceptable to eat with your hands, pretty soon you’ll be doing it too. What in the world do I mean by that? Basically, your girlfriend has submerged herself into a group that has an established “norm” and it seems like it differs from her actions and personality. Therefore she is trying to follow suit with them, thus changing her personality to fit theirs. It is kind of like the saying, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” I could be wrong, but based on my experience in helping boyfriends in the past, I think this is the best way for you to go about dealing with the problem. Communication is always key in a lasting and healthy relationship. I hope this helps and feel free to email or Facebook me if you need any more advice! Much love always, Ava
