Candidates clash at Firelands campus

CAMPUS BRIEF

Funeral arrangements announced for student

Some students eligible to vote for one of three Democratic candidates for Ohio’s 9th congressional district By Patrick Pfanner The BG News

HURON, Ohio — More than 500 people, including dozens of students, packed the University’s Firelands campus Thursday to watch a spirited debate between the three 9th District Congressional Democratic candidates seeking office. U.S. Representatives Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, and Dennis Kucinich, D-Cleveland, along

w ith political newcomer Graham Veysey, answered questions from the audience during a 90-minute debate. The 9th district stretches from Toledo to Cleveland and hugs Lake Erie. While Bowling Green falls just outside the border, many students living in cities such as Port Clinton, Elyria, Sandusky and Huron will be eligible to vote for one of these three candidates come March 6. When Republicans — under

the guidance of Gov. John Kasich — redrew congressional lines in January, they clumped together districts belonging to Kaptur and Kucinich, who both for years represented different ends of the state. Come March 6, only one of the three vying for the seat will become north central Ohio’s lone congressional representative. One question posed to each candidate included: “What will politicians do to help students

Funeral arrangements have been set for senior Thomas Cline, 23, of Mansfield, according to an email sent out by the University. Visitation hours are from 5 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 24 at the Wappner Funeral Home, 100 S. LexingtonSpringmill Road, in Ontario, Ohio. A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Feb. 25 at the funeral home, preceded by additional visitation beginning at 1:30 p.m. Cline died Sunday evening in his apartment and was discovered by his roommate, who called 911. Police arrived at the scene and affirmed Cline’s death at 6:34 p.m., said sergeant Mark McDonough. Further investigation is currently being conducted by the Lucas County Coroners Office.

City Tap owners purchase old ‘Bdubs’ location for new bar

Tyler Strittmatter Reporter

The old Buffalo Wild Wings location is under new ownership and will be transformed into an Irish pub and restaurant. The owners of City Tap, a bar and grill on Main street, purchased the wing franchise’s former location on the corner of East Wooster street and South Prospect street. Eric Pelham, one of the owners of City Tap, said that they are hoping to open the new location this summer in May. “It will be a similar business,” Pelham said in comparison to City Tap. “It will be a town-oriented place during the day, and at 11 it will turn into a bar.” With the new pub having multiple functions, Pelham expects everyone in town will be happy with it. “From diners to drinkers, we want to provide options for people in town and college kids,” Pelham said. A name for the establishment has already been agreed upon: The Stones Throw, Pelham said. “What makes it an Irish pub is the fact that we will serve Irish staples like shepherd’s pie and different whiskey and beer options,” Pelham

Students can voice their opinions on hot topics at the University through the 42 senators in Undergraduate Student Government. Senators voted at the organization’s meeting Monday night to remove Chick-fil-A from a survey as an option for the Falcon’s Nest as well as to deny the chain support if it became an option or was chosen to open in the Falcon’s Nest. USG senators represent certain portions of the student body and the “majority” of senators vote on what their constituents want, said Emily Ancinec, USG president. During the meeting, senators considered having a secret ballot instead of a roll-call vote, so the overall result of the vote would be announced instead of each individual senator’s vote. “I don’t feel like they’re [the senators] uncomfortable with the position constituents have,” Ancinec said. “It does take a lot of courage; they feel pressure in the room to go one way.” It is “general practice” to talk to constituents and vote the way they want, however, senators’ opinion “factors in a little bit,” Ancinec said. USG speaker Ben Goldsberry said he thinks the senate does a good job of remaining objective in voting. “I think that while the temptation is there, I think my senators vote for their constituents,” Goldsberry said. “I think they’re able to put the views of their constituents above their own.” Despite the pressure to vote a certain way on heated issues, both Goldsberry and Ancinec said they think USG accurately represents students. “A lot of our issues lend themselves to people having the same opinion,” Ancinec said. “But the student body completely agreeing on one subject — that’s not reality.” Senators often hear the same opinion from sets of students, Ancinec said. “It’s very rare that we hear a wide scattering of opinions on one thing,” she said. Senators hear student opinions through different methods, Ancinec said. They can approach students on campus and begin a conversation, or contact them through Facebook, Twitter or email, and students can contact senators themselves or use lobby time dur-

MEMBERS of the BGSU Army ROTC “Fighting Falcons” fall into formation after a cold and rainy afternoon of field exercises outside of Anderson Arena.

Iowa State University hosted the annual Midwest Bisexual Gay Lesbian Transgender Ally College Conference Feb. 10-12 in Ames, Iowa. Twenty-six University students attended among 1,700 other students from around the nation on behalf of the LGBT community. The conference draws students

from mainly the Midwest area to come together and talk about gender and equality said Tobias Spears, assistant director of the LGBT Resource Center in the office of multicultural affairs. H.U.E., Qpoc and Vision, two prominent LGBT organizations at the University, were awarded 26 scholarships to fund the students’ trip to Iowa. The LGBT community at the University far exceeds the 26 person

Armando P. Herrera, 36, of Toledo, was arrested on two active warrants from Sylvania and Perrysburg townships within the 2100 block of E. Wooster St. and was transported to the Wood County Jail. Thomas Getz Jr., 53, of Bowling Green, was arrested for driving under suspension/noncompliance and falsification within the 2100 block of E. Wooster St. He was lodged in the Wood County Justice Center. 1:43 P.M.

A female subject was reported to have damaged a yellow car within the 100 block of E. Napoleon Road. She allegedly broke off both outside mirrors and took one of them with her. 5:31 P.M.

said. “We also want to provide an atmosphere with lots of stone, to present [the pub] feel to customers.” Pelham said the new location is currently a work in progress, as they are doing a lot to the interior and exterior. He said when they are finished, it will look like a completely different place. Outdoor dining will be provided for customers on the patio, and Pelham said they want to incorporate live musical entertainment, specifically acoustic performers. Cory Breth, a senior at the University who has played at different bars downtown, said he is excited about the possibility of another venue to play his style of music, which is an acoustic, singer-

songwriter style. “This sounds like a good place for acoustic acts to get their names out and share their music,” Breth said. “I think people will respond well to this type of venue.” Breth said a lot of the downtown music scene is centered more on dance clubs with hip hop music and rock shows that are more “amped up.” Breth said he may not be able to reap the benefits of the new location, as he is uncertain he will remain in Bowling Green after graduation; however he feels this new venue “will be a perfect place that caters more to acoustic music. “I hope that it goes well,” Breth said. “I want singersongwriters to have more opportunities to play than I did.” You can check out Breth’s music at corybreth.com or

on Facebook at facebook. com/corybreth. Nick Williams, a senior at the University and one of the head bartenders at Granite City in Maumee, said that an Irish pub could add something different to the downtown bar scene. “An Irish pub brings a different atmosphere that’s more relaxed,” Williams said. “From what it sounds like, this new place could be similar to The Blarney in Toledo.” Williams said he hopes the new pub in Bowling Green will have a better and more diverse beer selection than just the typical domestic beer choices at some bars.

USG From Page 1 ing the organization’s meetings to give their thoughts on a topic. “We’ve never had a problem with student voice not being there,” Ancinec said. “We represent our peers, it’s difficult for us to lose touch with the student voice.” At the same time, a campus of this size can make it difficult to reach everyone, Ancinec said. “We need to go out and talk to [students] as much as we can,” she said. Office hours, which are hours either spent in the USG office (internal hours) or out of it (external hours) doing USG business, are another way for senators to reach out to students, said Derek Sword, USG internal affairs chair and at-large senator. Each senator is required to do one external office hour each week; during that time they can talk to constituents or administrators, or work with other senators, Sword said. Senators are held account-

able for office hours by an “honor system,” Sword said, as they mark whether they completed the hour each week by a check mark. Sword said he hopes senators do their office hours and thinks those who don’t are a “definite minority.” “I think the people in USG care about being there and do the requirements,” Sword said. Senator reports also allow executive officers to check that the senators are talking to their constituents, Goldsberry said. The reports are turned in monthly by each senator, letting Goldsberry know what each senator has accomplished, what their goals are and how they’re talking to students; it also makes sure they are doing what they should be, Goldsberry said. Personally, Ancinec said she relies on senators to reach out to students. “I spend a lot of time with administrators,” Ancinec said. “I represent the student body as a whole to the administration.”

Each day consisted of various workshops, presentations and keynote speakers, all of whom were very much representative of the students who attended, said Spears. “One of the most memorable parts was talking to other advisers from other schools there and finding out some had brought only one or two students and we had brought 26,” Spears said. “It just showed that not only does BG have a great community, but we also do things for that community by coming to conferences like this.” The conference focused on making sure to include work-

shops or presentations that persons of every gender, race, orientation or disability could relate to. “There’s this constant issue with bisexuality where people tend to claim it doesn’t exist and they’re just confused,” said freshman Daniel Rivera. “My favorite part was the bi/pansexual/fluid identity caucus because I was able to be in a room full of people that may have the same types of problems or questions that relate to me.” The University students who participated noted the diversity of the schools in attendance. Florida Gulf State University was in attendance; their LGBTQ organization is the second largest on campus, and the school has already banned Chick-Fil-a from its campus, said sophomore Maddison Prether. There were a few Christian affiliated schools there as well, which Prether said were more

underground organizations that had to provide their own funding for the conference. There’s been an increase in awareness this year, and more people are comfortable coming to the meetings and being out in general, said junior Amy Finkenbine. Finkenbine was elected as one of two Ohio representatives to be on the conference’s oversight committee, which plans the next two upcoming conferences. She said next year’s conference will be held at Michigan State University. The University’s large turnout of students may be a reflection of the growing LGBT community and network of similar organizations on campus. “There’s a thriving community here at BG and so many ways for students to get involved,” Spears said. “The conference was just one of the ways the inclusiveness and community aspect could be seen.”

One student energized by the political sparring among the candidates included Firelands freshman Haley Livengood. “The debate was ver y informative,” Livengood said.

1939 was the first year men were allowed to live on campus because the first men’s residence hall, Kohl Hall, was built. Kohl opened for 130 freshmen and 25 upperclassmen. At the time, Kohl Hall was the furthest building from the women’s hall.

Not Our Lady of Chalupa

S

t. Aloysius might share the block with Bowling Green’s infamous Taco Bell, but Father Mark Davis joked “We are not Our Lady of Chalupa!” St. Aloysius Catholic Church was founded in 1862 in a rather unique way. Twelve local farmers got together to build a place to worship. Ironically, all the farmer’s names began with Saint. They put all their names in a hat and randomly chose Saint Aloysius (Pieffer), which decidedly became the churches official name. Aloysius Gonzaga was later named the church’s patron saint, “not after Gonzaga University in March Madness,” laughed Father Mark. The church has continued to grow in size, adding almost 15 members a year to the current 3,500 member total. In 1960 St. Aloysius added on a school, which has also continued to flourish. The school now includes everything from pre-kindergarten readiness all the way up to eighth grade, plus full day daycare. St. Aloysius prides itself on educating youth in a religious centered environment. St. Aloysius is also very active in the Catholic Youth Organization that is run through the Toledo Diocese. CYO offers cross country for boys and girls grades K-8, girls volleyball grades 5-12, boys football grades 5-8 and basketball for both boys and girls grades 5-12. Father Mark and the members of St. Aloysius are looking forward to their Parish Mission this year on March 18th-20th. Father John Judie of the Archdiocese of Louisville, Ky. will be conducting the mission. Father John is not a stranger to St. Aloysius, he met Father Mark at St. Meinrad Seminary school and has continued to stay in touch. Father John founded his own mission organization and is also has an international reputation as a Gospel musician. This year’s Parish Mission promises to be an entertaining mix of program, music and prayer. St. Aloysius conducts mass every Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and also every Sunday at 8 a.m., 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. - plus free coffee and donuts! “At St. Aloysius we make a real effort to be welcoming to everyone; including people of other faiths. We are diverse but unified in the faith,” said Father Mark.

Japanese mayor denies Nanjing Massacre MATHEW DAVOLI COLUMNIST

In 1938, Ishikawa Tatsuzo gave an in-depth account of one of the hundreds of thousands of acts of sadism committed in Nanjing, China by Japanese soldiers over a period of six weeks. Around 300,000 Chinese civilians were murdered in those six weeks, and a large amount of the population was sexually violated. These crimes against humanity may have been committed several decades ago, but, as my wife is from the same province of China as Nanjing, I am very aware that the wounds are yet to heal. That is why I was shocked to read in the Wall Street Journal that this week Takashi Kawamura, the mayor of Nagoya, Japan, “told a delegation from Nanjing that he … [believed that the atrocities] ‘probably never happened.’” He went on to say, “Even since I was a national Diet representative, I have said [repeatedly] there was no [Nanjing] massacre that resulted in murders of several hundred thousands of people … We need to talk about this publicly without hesitation instead of behind the scenes.” As ABC reports, “[He] said he believed only ‘conventional acts of combat’ took place in Nanjing.” To better understand the implications of his words, one should remember that the Nanjing massacre was not an isolated incident. Japanese Unit 731, for example, murdered thousands of Chinese civilians in medical experiments. As Time Magazine reported in 2002, “[Victims of Unit 731] were frozen alive to research frostbite. Burned alive to research human combustion. Loaded into vacuum chambers until their bellies ruptured. Hung by their ankles to see how long a person can live upside-down. They were infected with plague, anthrax and cholera and subjected to vivisection without anesthesia.” Also, as Japanese scholar Saburo Ienga wrote in his book, “The Pacific War, 1931-1945,” there were total war policies carried out in China by some Japanese

units in which “every village and hamlet in the operations zone was burned to the ground.” Saburo went on the record that these policies resulted in mass hardships, as he writes, “Their farms ruined, millions of homeless people were left to starve.” Nanjing, in many ways, has become a symbol for all the various crimes committed against the Chinese people by Imperial Japan. For this Japanese leader to deny the Nanjing massacre, then, is to deny what many all around China have a living memory of. To my Western readers, this incident is akin to delegates from Israel being greeted by a mayor of a major German city with the words, “The Holocaust never happened.” The geo-political implications of this have been as one would expect. While I’m sure Takashi is receiving praise by some extreme-nationalists in Nagoya, the relations with its sister-city, Nanjing, has been harmed greatly. As the New York Times reports, Nanjing has broken off relations with Nagoya and further diplomatic troubles may lie ahead, although the Times reports that, “The top [Japanese] government spokesman restated Japan’s official position that the massacre did, in fact, take place.” Due to the political fallout, it is my hope that patriotic historical revision will be condemned with greater frequency in Japan, and that a form of national shame of past actions is propagated further as well. That being said, as I am an American writing to a largely American audience I should point out that we should not see ourselves as so high and mighty either. At times I encounter similar patriot revisionist history being propagated by American politicians and pundits. We should remember our own history as a nation, and never stray away from accepting what our country did in the past. We should do this not only because of its geo-political implications, but its moral implications as well. Never forget.

Wealthy pay more than their fair share of taxes MEAGAN WARD COLUMNIST

The dreaded tax season is upon us again. I recently sat and watched as my dad was trying to get everything together to file his taxes. My dad is what you would call the epitome of the middle class in terms of his income and living conditions. This gave me an idea. My dad allowed me to see his W2 which outlined what he paid in taxes to the federal government and to the state. He then showed me how much he pays in property taxes. Most people stop there.

We continued to research just a few additional taxes out there that are paid without any thought such as 43.1 cents per gallon of gas, sales taxes, use taxes, beverage taxes and fees for items such as license plates. Suddenly we were at approximately 35 percent of his income. There are countless business taxes out there. If one calculated the additional costs added to the price of our goods and services because of these taxes, it is likely that over 50 percent of my dad’s income goes to taxes. Again, I must emphasize he is middle class. There is an argument in society that the wealthy members should pay their fair share.

By using basic math, I could easily deduce that a millionaire makes about 20 times more than my dad but pays at least 40 times more in taxes. It sounds to me like they pay their fair share. Today the top 1 percent of wage earners pay 39 percent of all income taxes collected. The top 25 percent of wage earners contribute 86 percent of all income taxes collected. Sounds to me like more than their fair share. A recently released report from the Government Accountability Office indicated that there are redundancies in more than 546 federal programs. President Obama just presented a 3.8 trillion dollar budget blue print. He again

is calling for a tax increase on the wealthy. His budget has been presented as being laced with cuts. However, our federal debt will continue to grow. How naïve must someone be to believe spending more than you earn is a cut. Selling it that way is an insult to all Americans. Everyone needs to open their eyes to all of the taxes they pay, not just what is taken out of your paycheck. The government already takes more than enough money from its citizens and it is time to stand up and force them to be accountable.

We seem to love making ourselves happy CHANCE STOODT GUEST COLUMNIST

The definition of love is highly contested. I have often heard that love is blind, in that one should ignore outer beauty and focus on less superficial traits. I have often heard that love should be unconditional, in that one should love their partner despite their weaknesses and faults. I have also often heard that love is selfless, in that it requires self-sacrifice to sus-

tain. The fact of the matter is that none of these claims are true, but that to love is one of the most selfish acts man can commit. Why do we love those we love? It is certainly not a game of blind darts, where one takes chances on certain individuals in hoping things work out. It requires careful evaluation of an individual’s character. To love someone is to have the utmost respect, admiration and attraction to a partner’s values and principles, in comparison to one’s own. Just the same, love is not unconditional, but conditioned on acts and lifestyles that exhibit

these values. Love is not a blank check granted to any random individual undeserving of it. One does not love out of pity, but loves out of pure, selfish gain. A relationship must bring mutual happiness to both individuals. Love is not built on dependency or parasitical relationships, but mutual gain. Why does one spend money on dinners and gifts? Aren’t these examples of selfless acts? Contrary to that belief, these acts are not of self-sacrifice, but acts of selfishness themselves.

One values his or her partner’s happiness more than whatever was given, or traded, in return for that happiness. To love someone is to acknowledge that a specific person affects your life in a positive manner and shares your principles. To be loved is to know that one’s life brings joy and is a benefit to another. I close with a quote from Ayn Rand in The Fountainhead: “To say ‘I love you’ one must first understand how to say the ‘I.’”

BG hockey plays final home game of season against No. 3 Michigan By Matt Nye Reporter

After getting swept two straight weekends, the Falcons are still focusing on the positives that came out of those games. “We found out that we are not that far away from the No. 1 team,” said coach Chris Bergeron. “Why not us? BG has a lot to offer in the total package.” The road doesn’t get any easier. The Falcons take on the No. 3 Michigan Wolverines this weekend. This is the first time the Falcons have faced Michigan this season. Both games will be played at the BGSU Ice Arena and start at 7:05 p.m. The Falcons (9-20-5, 4-184-3 Central Collegiate Hockey Association) have had limited success against Michigan of late. They are currently on a seven-game losing streak to the Wolverines. The

last win for BG was back in the 2009-10 season, when it won 4-2. Michigan (20-10-4, 14-8-4 CCHA) is coming off a sweep of Northern Michigan, who swept the Falcons two weeks ago. The Wolverines won the first game 4-1 and then won the second game 3-2 in overtime. They have momentum and jumped up two spots in the national rankings heading into this series with the Falcons. The Wolverines are currently in second place in the CCHA standings behind Ferris State. They are led by junior defenseman Lee Moffie. He has recorded six goals and 23 assists (29 points) this season, which ranks second in the CCHA in scoring for defenseman. Freshman Alex Guptill and junior A.J. Treais both share the lead on the team with 15 goals. They have six players with 20 points on this season.

Falcons close home slate against Miami

They have a lot of experience between the pipes in senior goalie Shawn Hunwick. He is 20-9-3 in 33 appearances. He has a 2.05 goals-against-average and a .932 save percentage. Michigan’s offense has been explosive this year, ranking first in the CCHA and averaging 3.35 goals-per-game this season. It is solid on defense too, giving up 2.21 goals-per-game, which ranks it third in the conference. Its power play and penalty kill have been about the middle of the pack this season in the CCHA. Bergeron is very aware of their ability to score and defend at a high level. “They have great goaltending,” Bergeron said. “Their team defense is underrated, and they defend very well. If we are on and right, we can compete with them.”

This could possibly be the last home game for the Falcons. Saturday’s matchup against Miami will be the last regular season game for the women’s basketball team in the Stroh Center. The only other chance it would have to play a home game would be if BG made it to the first round of the NCAA tournament. BG is in the midst of a recordsetting season at home — they have not lost a game in the brand new arena since their home opener against Purdue. A record best in the Stroh Center, and a win against Miami, would give them the same home record as last season, which was their final season in Anderson Arena. In the five losses that the Falcons have incurred over the course of their season, all of them have been

within four points, excluding their first season game against Dayton, where they lost 69-38. Still on top of the Mid-American Conference with a record of 12-2, 22-5 overall, Miami trails the Falcons by two games, earning the second place slot in the East Division. The Redhawks clinched a bye to the quarterfinals of the MAC tournament with a recent win against Akron, while BG settled for a shared conference lead with Eastern Mich. after a loss against Ohio on the road. Despite the loss, the Falcons had a hearty performance from Alexis Rogers — she put up 24 points and a career-high of 16 rebounds, and 12 of the second half points from the Falcons came from Roger’s arsenal.

BG men’s basketball drops contest to Akron, 79-68, for second straight loss By Nick Marlow Reporter

Dee Brown reached 1,000 career points Wednesday against Akron, but a curb was placed on the senior’s milestone as the Falcons went down 79-68. Zeke Marshall paced a 57 percent shooting effort from Akron with 16 points and was one of five players to score in double figures for the Zips. Brian Walsh, Alex Abreu and Nikola Cvetinovic each had 12 points, and Demetrius Treadwell had 10. BG’s A’uston Calhoun led all scorers with 18 points and posted a team-high seven rebounds. The Falcons’ leading scorer recoiled

nicely after consecutive pedestrian contributions versus Ohio and Morehead State against whom he tallied just nine points combined. Brown finished with 11 points and reached 1,000 on a midrange jumper at the 14:13 mark in the second period. He got to 1,002 when he meshed a pair of free throws during a 13-1 run that ended with the Falcons within three points of Akron, 67-64, with 2:17 left. But the Zips would respond with a 12-3 run to get to the final margin and were perfect on eight free throw attempts in the final 45 seconds.

The Zips were 18-of-20 (90 percent) from the free throw stripe. Jordon Crawford, along with Calhoun and Brown, also finished in double digits for BG with 13 points. The point guard handled the ball with care and committed only one turnover which played a large part in the Falcons finishing with a season low of eight. The loss put BG two games back of

Women’s basketball falls to Bobcats By Nick Juskewycz Reporter

In crunch time with the MidAmerican Conference East Division title within reach, BG needed to execute once again in a tight game. Tenisha Benson of the Ohio Bobcats, who had never beaten the Falcons in her career, had a different idea. Benson scored eight of her 21 points in the final 2:08 of the game, leading the Bobcats to a 60-56 victory against BG. BG drops to 12-2 in MAC play and 22-5 overall while Ohio improves to 6-8 in the MAC and 13-15 overall. “We talked going into this game how well Ohio is playing,” said coach Curt Miller. “They are really stepping up at the right time, and we also talked about, going into this game, that seniors who have never beaten you want to find a way to beat you with that bull’s-eye on your back. We talked about how good Tenisha Benson is, and her attitude, and how badly this game would mean to her.” BG led by as much as 12 in the first half, but Ohio went on a 7-0 run to only give the Falcons a 32-27 lead at halftime.

“For 38 minutes we did a pretty good job on all those isolations, especially with Benson. But eight points in the final two minutes, and we just couldn’t find a way to get that stopped.” Curt Miller | BG Women’s Basketball Coach

The game continued to go back and forth in a second half that included five lead changes. The Falcons received most of their scoring from Alexis Rogers, who scored 12 of the 24 points by BG in the second half. After Rogers hit back-toback free throws at the 4:00 mark, giving the Falcons the 51-50 lead, BG ran into trouble. BG suffered a threeminute scoring drought due to two missed free throws, a turnover by Jessica Slagle and two turnovers by Danielle Havel. Benson of the Bobcats took advantage and scored on consecutive layups giving Ohio the 54-51 lead. However, BG would not quit. Jasmine Matthews spotted up from the deep right wing and swished a threepoint field goal with 1:04 to go, tying the game at 54. After a 30-second time out, Benson didn’t stop and drained a mid-range jumper

from the right wing to take the lead back 56-54. Rogers of the Falcons responded by drawing a foul on Symone Lyles and connected on both free throws to tie it at 56. Ohio took a full time out and drew up another play for Benson. Ohio executed once again and Benson took it strong against Rogers making the layup, plus the foul with eight seconds left. Benson missed the free throw, and Chrissy Steffen grabbed the rebound for BG, but Benson snuck in behind her and got tied up with Steffen for the jump ball. With the possession arrow facing Ohio’s way, the Falcons were forced to foul. Shavon Robinson went to the line for the Bobcats and made both free throws to ice the game and give Ohio the 60-56 win. Benson finished with 21 points and 9 rebounds while Robinson finished with 20

points and 5 rebounds. “They are really good at finding isolations, and they are a really good one-on-one team,” Miller said. “For 38 minutes we did a pretty good job on all those isolations, especially with Benson. But eight straight points in the final two minutes, and we just couldn’t find a way to get that stopped.” The Falcons received another monstrous performance from Rogers, finishing with 24 points and 16 rebounds. She played 38 minutes and made all four of her free throws, including two in the final minute. Matthews also scored in double figures with 11 points. The Falcons have already clinched a bye into the quarterfinals of the MAC tournament. While BG has made it a tougher task to clinch two byes into the semifinals, the team still controls its own destiny if it wins its last two contests. Also, if Toledo or Eastern Michigan lose one of their last two games, the Falcons would only need to win one of their remaining games for two byes. BG will return to the Stroh Center for Senior Day to face the Miami Redhawks with

BG gymnastics takes on No. 17 Missouri By Daniel Sierra Reporter

The BG gymnastics team faces its second top-20 opponent of the season, traveling to take on No. 17 Missouri Friday. The Falcons aim to deliver a big score on the road, after uncharacteristic struggles on vault held the team to 192.325 against Pittsburgh last weekend. Coach Kerrie Beach hopes competing against one of the nation’s best teams pushes her gymnasts beyond their current season-high score of 193.975, set against Northern Illinois. “When you walk in as the underdog, you feel like you basically have nothing to lose,” Beach said. “That’s the attitude they need to have. They need to put it all out there and not be afraid of anything and really fight for

Kerrie Beach

Coach leading BG into game against Missouir a better road score.” Beach notes that this will be the last week of intense practices for the team, before tapering off during March in preparation for the Mid-American Conference Championships on March 24. After a strictly scored meet in Pittsburgh, she knows that the Falcons need to polish up their skills and landings to impress the judges this late in the season. “You have to go in with the plan that the judging’s going to be tough, and that you can’t give away anything,” Beach said. “They’ve been really hungry to work on the little stuff this week. I saw

more stuck vaults and landings than I think I’ve seen all year. They’re completely motivated to get all those little tenths back.” BG fell to sixth in the MAC standings this week, but remains the top program on floor exercise. Along with a season-high balance beam performance last weekend, Beach is encouraged by the significant strides her team is making on uneven bars. Bars has given the Falcons plenty of grief this year, but Beach now has eight strong gymnasts vying for spots in the lineup — a luxury that helps the team ensure that its six best bar workers are out there for postseason. “They’re doing everything to compete over there,” Beach said. “I wouldn’t say that the lineup is set on bars. I’m still waiting to see who’s the most consistent and who’s going to

score well.” The Falcons have a hefty MAC schedule remaining, as the team has yet to meet Kent State, Ball State and Eastern Michigan. Beach says the team still needs to work on competing well at away meets, as the MAC Championships are hosted by Northern Illinois this year. The three remaining away meets are opportunities to test the Falcons’ abilities outside of their comfort zone — beginning with Missouri on Friday. “They need to be ready for anything,” Beach said. “That’s still the most important thing. I think we took a step this past week. I hope we can take a step again going out to Missouri and kind of get in that pattern of not just being on our own equipment. That will be the focus from here on out.”

BG baseball travels to Oklahoma State By Ryan Satkowiak Sports Editor

After starting its season with a pair of losses in a doubleheader, the BG baseball team briefly will have a chance to prepare for the format of conference play. Starting Friday, and ending Sunday, the Falcons will face off against Oklahoma State in a three-game set down in Stillwater, Okla. The series emulates how a MidAmerican Conference series is played, and will give coach Danny Schmitz an early chance to prepare his team for that format. “The way we look at the first eight to 10 games is, not necessarily an exhibition season, but we’ll try different lineup combinations,” Schmitz said. “Whether it’s on the mound — we’re not sure who our two and three starters or our middle guys are going to be yet. We’ll try some different combinations in the infield and outfield. There are definitely still questions to answer.” With the full three-game series, the Falcons will have a chance to set a full weekend starting rotation for the first time this season. Cody Apthorpe, who started the team’s season opener, will get the ball in game one. Starting game two for BG will be left-hander Patrick Martin. Ethan McKenney, who started BG’s second game last weekend, will start game three. Schmitz was pleased with the pitching and defensive phases of the Falcons’ two losses last weekend. However, he said the team needs to improve its hitting, particularly with men on base. “We struggled to bunch the hits together,” Schmitz said. “When we get chances to advance runners, we want to do that, and when we get chances to drive run-

Cody Apthorpe

Starting the first of BG’s three-game set ners in, we need to capitalize on that.” He also noted that the team needs better production from the top two spots in the lineup. Last weekend, Brandon Howard and Matthew Pitzulo — BG’s top two in the batting order in both games — combined to go 1-for-18 at the plate with no walks. In fact, BG only had two walks as a team in the two losses last weekend. “We can be a little more disciplined and select when hitting and work the counts a little bit more,” Schmitz said. “We want the guys to be aggressive, but not overly aggressive where they’re swinging at the first or second pitch. “That doesn’t help bring the opposing pitcher’s pitch count up if he’s getting in and out of innings. We want to work that pitcher and get him deep in the count.” The Cowboys were picked to finish sixth in the Big XII preseason poll, and are 2-3 on the season. They opened the season getting swept by Cal Poly, but have won games against Dallas Baptist and St. Gregory’s. Despite losing two of their top starters from last season, the Cowboys are led on the mound by Andrew Heaney, who had a 7-4 record and a 4.03 earned-run average as a sophomore last season. “He’s one of the top lefthanders in the country,” Schmitz said. “[As a team] they’re going to play very well defensively and swing the bats well. They’re going to try and put pressure on our defense, so we have to control the running game and go out and play good, solid baseball.”

the game. Slagle has started every season game and won MAC Player of the Week twice. She shifted from her original wing position to be the team’s leading point guard and has even led the team in scoring in seven games. Giese’s career was cut short due to a medical situation, but she has been with the team for every game. The final game in the Stroh against the Redhawks is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday.

The Falcons will have a chance to hoist themselves within a game of Kent State when they take on the Golden Flashes at the Stroh Center on Saturday. The two played at Kent back in January, and despite a 60-point second half the Falcons lost 92-87.

Track to compete in MAC Championships By Alex Krempasky Reporter

The BG track and field returns to action this weekend for the Mid-American Conference indoor championship meet. This will be the Falcons’ second consecutive meet at the University of Akron, the first being two weeks ago for the Akron Invitational. The team had the past weekend off to prepare for the

Mid-American Conference indoor championships. “Its nice having a weekend off,” said coach Lou Snelling. “It helps us jump start our focus and to be as healthy as possible for the upcoming meet.” This meet will showcase BG’s best talent for the chance of a MAC championship and a possible NCAA championship invite.

“We are going to expect some pretty good individual performances from a small group of girls,” Snelling said. “We are expecting those girls to perform at their highest potential.” Though there is a select group that the coaches have high expectations for, the whole team will have chances to win at this weekend’s championship meet.

BG tennis takes on Cleveland State Emily Reuland

By Nate Doolin Reporter

The Falcons start their three-game road voyage by taking on the Vikings of Cleveland State University Saturday afternoon inside the Paramount Tennis Club. This marks the second time BG has seen the Vikings in action this year. During the individual portion of the season, the Falcons saw CSU during the BGSU Invitational (Sept. 16-17) and the ITA Midwest Regional (Oct. 20-22). BG will go into Saturday’s match with a 3-3 record on the year and a desire to snap the three game losing streak. A large focus will be put on the sixth flight, as Viking player Alex Power has been dominant against BG, picking up a flight championship during the BGSU Invitational. Power also took down BG in the qualifying draw at the ITA Midwest Regional. The Falcons capitalized against CSU in the

Co-leading BG win 15 victories on the season BGSU Invitational as Maddy Eccleston defeated Catrine Bjerrehus in the third flight singles by a 6-3, 6-4 score. Johnson/Eccleston overcame Bjerrehus/Janek in flight two doubles by a score of 8-3. Reuland/Easdale sealed a hard fought flight three championship by surpassing Lazaris/Sherwood 9-7. Kara Sherwood from CSU notably beat her BG foe in three sets during her fifth flight singles contest to round out the face-to-face comparison of the Vikings. The Vikings currently hold a 5-3 dual match record for the season and are on a three game winning streak with a recent 7-0 victory against Case Western. Further Accomplishment seen by CSU this year stands with Nicole Janek being named

the Horizon League Women’s Tennis Athlete of the Week, for the week beginning Feb. 13. “I think we played really tough against Louisville last week, and even though we didn’t get the win, there was a lot of improvement from that match going into Saturday,” said coach Penny Dean. “Cleveland State is always a tough dual match for us. We’re going to have to make adjustments in warm ups, as their courts are a bit faster than what we usually see.” Nikki Chiricosta has found a good stride to her play as she is currently riding out a four-game winning streak and searches for five in a row Saturday. Emily Reuland also has not disappointed as she searches for her sixth win of the season with dropping only one loss. “Overall I think we have kept a good energy, and I am encouraged by the composure everyone has held throughout the season,” Dean said.

“It’s a championship,” Snelling said. “Hopefully we’ll see others step up.” After this weekend’s championship in Akron, the team will have one more indoor meet, the Alex Wilson Invitational at the University of Notre Dame, for one last chance to qualify for the NCAA championship meet at the Idaho Center in Nampa, Idaho.

Bar offers light, local food

By Geoff Burns Pulse Reporter

City Tap is more than just a bar — it’s also a restaurant that gives customers a variety of options in the dishes it serves during the day. Some include salads, wraps, hamburgers and fries, as well as appetizers. Eric Delham, owner of City Tap, said when the bar started more than two years ago it aimed to do something different than other bars in Bowling Green. The owners wanted it to be a place that would serve the whole town in the day and turn into a college hangout at night. “We wanted to represent the city well and serve the community such as the town people and the college students all at the same time,” Delham said. “By providing more than just your standard bar food, we’ve been able to do that.”

As money seems to be the typical college student’s struggle, the bar and restaurant strive to keep prices down as much as they can. “Happy hour is from 2-6 p.m. every day where we always have a special beer of the day for $2 and all of our appetizers are $4 or less,” Delham said. “If you’re coming in for a light snack you can get a great deal for that.” Ashley Mielcarek, server at City Tap, said the restaurant has really talented cooks that know what they’re doing, which contributes greatly to the taste of the food. “We have steak nights on Wednesdays and wings on Mondays, which are really popular,” Mielcarek said. “We have decent food and this causes us to get a variety of people to come in, such as families, couples, older people and younger people.” City Tap obtains its meat and produce products all from local-

ly sourced places in Bowling Green which contributes to a unique aspect about the bar and restaurant. “With food being local we can get deliveries two or three times a week just to make sure that we’re going through the products and that nothing has been here that long, all while supporting the Bowling Green economy,” Delham said. “It’s just a matter of making sure everybody gets taken care of. People take care of you, and it works out very well.” Senior Jessie Corp has eaten at City Tap many times and said the atmosphere is very relaxing, and she enjoys the food that is offered. “It’s clean and classy in the restaurant, which is what I like about it,” Corp said. “They have great burritos and french fries and their food is good. It’s not too expensive.” People under 21 are not allowed in after 10 p.m.

Those craving a hearty soup or searching for Vegenaise can swing by Squeaker’s Café and Health Food Store in downtown Bowling Green for an affordable lunch and vegetarian goodies. “Ninety to 95 percent of our customers are vegan,” said owner William Armstrong. “We’re excited to offer foods that fit their lifestyles.” The Café offers an array of salads and sandwiches, in addition to weekly specials and soups of the day. When I stopped in for lunch this past Friday, I was tempted by the “Steak” and Walnut Salad: marinated homemade seitan and mushrooms served on a bed of mixed greens, tomatoes, carrots, onions, celery, walnuts and mozzarella with goddess dressing. (Of course, any dairy options can be omitted to accommodate a vegan diet.) But I was in the mood for a robust sandwich. “The Cali Burger and Avocado Reuben are our two best sellers,” said Williams. My love of avocados guided me to the Reuben, a sandwich composed of Tofurky deli slices with sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing, mustard, avocado and mozzarella. Even though there could have been more fixings between the slices of

toasted whole wheat, the crunch of the sauerkraut and the tang of the dressing complimented the avocado’s creaminess. As an additional side, I ordered a cup of smoked tempeh red lentil soup, which was the highlight of my meal. Smoky in flavor with a kick of cayenne, this soul-warming soup perfectly matched the chilly day. The thick chunks of potatoes added more texture and body to the lentils and tempeh. Apart from the healthy vegetarian menu options, the café features live music Fridays during lunch (when I visited, Ken Waldman and Lucy Long played some lovely string music) and every other Friday night a three-piece jazz trio performs. “The live music really appeals to college students, and the Thursday Night Open Mic is a great time for young people to showcase their talents and appreciate others’ music while enjoying great food,” Long said; she is a performing artist and founder of the Center for Food and Culture in Bowling Green. Another draw to Squeaker’s is the Health Food Store. The wide selection ranges from refrigerated goods, such as vegan “cheese” and miso, to essential pantry items, such as quinoa pasta and organic canned beans, to personal care items, such as all-natural shampoos and supplements.

Chef achieves dream, “The Arabian Nights� offers new theatre experience plans to influence By Tara Keller Pulse Reporter

Steven Meese wanted to cook on TV, and didn’t quit until he finally appeared on the air. After years of studying cooking and working in culinary institutes, Meese’s dream of preparing food on TV came true. Meese recently appeared on Fox Toledo, WTOL CBS Your Morning Saturday and ABC Channel 9, teaching the audience how to prepare his signature dishes. “My element is cooking on TV. I love doing it because I’m sharing my cooking techniques and styles with a mass audience,� Meese said. “You can’t do that other than on television.� The owner and head chef of Edgy Eats, located in Northwest Ohio, Meese said he faced many obstacles to get to his status of chef and TV personality. “I got hundreds of no’s already,� Meese said. “I’ve been told, ‘You’re never going to be a great chef,’ but I never listen to them.� Meese said his mission is not only to one day host his own cooking show, but also

to educate people through his healthy cooking and help fight America’s obesity epidemic. “Food is all interpretation. I choose to cook healthier because why would I want to make people sick?� Meese said. Sheryl Umulis shares Meese’s desire to create healthier products. Umulis, the owner of the wine store and manufacturer Six Lugs in Michigan, said Meese partners her cherry vinaigrette with his food to create a meal that is delicious and healthy. “He used his chef skills with my products and found them really unique,� Umulis said. “His foods are very refreshing, light, earthy and good.� As for Meese’s future in TV, Umulis said she could see the chef having success. “He has a dream of getting himself out there so people can see his talent,� Umulis said. “He’s an absolute ball of energy. He enjoys using fresh products to make a meal and has a strong desire to be heart healthy.� Sarah Lahey helped Meese do a cooking demonstration at the Dillard’s at Westfield

Franklin Park Mall Feb. 18 and said she could also see Meese’s TV career expand. “He needs an audience,� Lahey said. “I see him front and center. It’s not like he’s cooking for you. He’s having a conversation with you.� Although his unique cooking style and health-first platforms earned Meese media attention, he said he won’t let it go to his head. “You have to walk in humility,� Meese said. “I will use my stature to make a difference with the youth of America.� Among television shows, Meese said he plans on releasing cookbooks, expanding his company Edgy Eats, opening culinary schools and teaching people about working to achieve their dreams. “I’ve failed so many times and I’ve got the word ‘no’ so many times,� Meese said. “Failure will eat you up. You have a choice to eat failure, or failure will eat you.�

Play first at University to be featured “In the round� for audiences By Danae King Pulse Editor

When the theatre department selected the show to open the Wolfe Center for the Arts’ Eva Marie Saint Theatre, it was looking for something special, which is why it chose “The Arabian Nights.� “It’s a super special theatre experience,� said senior and stage manager for the play, A. M. Duffee. The show features gymnastics, theatrical movement, singing, dancing and stage combat, Duffee said. The play, which premiered Feb. 16 and ran through the 19, will show again this weekend at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sunday. Its first weekend out, the show was sold out, said Jonathan Chambers, the director of the play and associate professor in the department of theatre and film. With the premiere of the play came an experience different than any other at the University thus far — theatre in the round. Theatre in the round is an

arena-type stage with the audience seated on all four sides, Duffee said. “When you come in you’re within a few feet of the playing space as you watch it,� Chambers said. This style adds intimacy between actors and audience members, said senior Dylan Stretchbery, who plays King Shahryar in the play. “All the actors are always on the stage,� Stretchbery said. “As opposed to being able to walk backstage you are constantly in the eye of the audience, you can’t drop character.� The play has a lot of appeal for students, Duffee said. “There’s a lot of sex in it and students like sex,� Duffee said. “I think it’s one of the best shows we’ve done that will connect to students lately.� Duffee named some things to look forward to as the Jester’s Tale and a threeminute-long fart scene. “[The Jester’s Tale] is four comedic sex scenes back to back,� Duffee said. “It’s very sarcastic, it’s supposed to be ridiculous.�

Gavarome moves ‘Spots’ to Main Street By Max Filby News Editor

Hot wings weren’t always hot and Jim Gavarome wasn’t sure how well they would help support his sandwich shop. Curently on Court Street, Gavarome’s restaurant, Mister Spots, will soon be moving to Main Street. “Spots,� as it’s sometimes called, offers customers the chance to enjoy “authentic� food with Gavarome’s steak sandwiches and chicken wings. Despite having about 27 years under his belt, Gavarome said he “accidentally backed into� his business. “A few friends just doubledog-dared me into it,� he says. When Gavarome opened his store on Court Street on Feb. 17, 1985, his wings quickly became one of a kind in the local food market. “We’ve done wings from day one,� Gavarome said. “We were kind of pioneers in that industry.� As a pioneer in the wing industry during the‘80s, Gavarome was going up against another restaurant in Columbus, Ohio — Buffalo Wild Wings. At the time, Mister Spots and Buffalo

Wild Wings were two of the only places in the area that regularly sold wings, Gavarome says. “It really became an intense rivalry,� Gavarome says. Eventually, wings became more mainstream as Buffalo Wild Wings started to expand, Gavarome said. While hot wings may have been a rarity during Gavarome’s rivalry, about 33 percent of all wings are now ordered at “casual dining restaurants,� such as Mister Spots, according to the National Chicken Council’s 2012 Chicken Wing Report. “Wings used to be sort of disposable,� Gavarome says. “They used to cost 30 cents a pound, you know, and now they cost something like $3.30. They’ve just gotten so big.� Although Gavarome may not be the man of a million locations or menu items, for the past 27 years, his sandwiches and his sauce has been “spot on.� “We make our own sauce,� Gavarome says. “It’s no garden secret though. We don’t have 82 flavors or any sort of nuclear sauce, but it’s pretty good. It’s basic.� When Gavarome bites

“We make our own sauce. It’s no garden secret though. We don’t have 82 flavors or any sort of nuclear sauce, but it’s pretty good. It’s basic.� Jim Gavarome | Owner into a wing or sandwich at his shop, he’s so satisfied that the only word he can find to describe it is as basic as his sauce recipe. “Deliciousness,� he says. “I truly eat this crap all the time.� Although Gavarome’s sauce is “basic,� he won’t give away the recipe, except for a few ingredients. At his Court Street location, currently in operation, Gavarome works with one of his best friends, Mark Koldan. Koldan, who is also the general manager at Mister Spots, first met Gavarome when playing club lacrosse together at the University back in the early ‘80s. “It’s great not just working with my best friend, but working for my best friend,� Koldan says. “My kids call him ‘Uncle Jim’.� When Gavarome played lacrosse, Koldan was his backup goalie. “Essentially, he’s my back-

up at Mister Spots, too,� Gavarome says. Since being put in charge in 1986, Koldan has been “steering the ship� at “Spots,� Gavarome said. Although Gavarome is now more of a “behind the scenes kind of guy,� he sometimes still makes his own sandwiches and wings. “Sometimes I’ll climb right behind the counter,� Gavarome says. While Gavarome may not always be behind the store counter, customers, such as five-year patron Michelle Crook, still love his products. “It’s on par,� Crook says as she finishes her dinner. “It’s local, casual and is pretty reasonably priced.� As customers like Crook leave Gavarome’s old restaurant location, something similar will ‘mark the spot’ at 206 N. Main Street, his new location. The doodle of Gavarome’s cat, Spot, wearing sunglass-

es, hangs on a sign above the doorway at each location. Gavarome did the doodle on the back of a textbook while sitting in a class at the University in the ‘80s. “I caught a lot of flack for naming the business after him,â€? Gavarome said. “My landlord called it Mister Flops ‌ he thought we wouldn’t last six months there.â€? Beneath the sign at the new Main Street location, people occasionally peek in to ask if the new Mister Spots is open for business. They thanked Gavarome as he sent them down to the Court Street location. “Welcome,â€? Gavarome said as they walked away. Inside his new location, a few wires hang below a TV screen. There’s still some work to be done before Mister Spots officially moves to Main Street later this spring. Different from its Court Street location, no customers are calling in orders and the dining room is still “spotless.â€? “The best part of all of this is the people,â€? he said. “At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.â€?

BGSU.EDU/DEPARTMENTS/THEATREFILM

Stretchbery recommended audiences come for the fart scene. “Usually if an audience member isn’t convinced on the comedy of a show this will win them over,� Stretchbery said. The opportunity to come back and do the play again excites those involved. “I’m ready to get right back into it,� Stretchbery said. Chambers said he is excited for people going to see the show. “I’m looking forward to the opportunity to share this production with another group of audience members,� Chambers said.

the wide range of GF bread, brownie and cake mixes as well as the multiple Bob’s Red Mill products particularly impressed me. “We’re working really hard to update the store, change the CafÊ’s menu and renovate the dĂŠcor,â€?
