UAO finds other uses for extra funding

Cancelled concert diverts money into other programs By Danae King Pulse Editor

Since the University Activities Organization cancelled its traditional homecoming concert, the organization used the money originally allocated for the concert on other programs. The concert was cancelled due to the large amount of other concerts in the Stroh Center, said Bri Cowart, former UAO president, about the cancellation in October. Cowart said she thought it was a good decision to not have the concert. “It expanded opportunities for us to do some new programs we hadn’t done in the past and to form new traditions,” Cowart said. Approximately $70,000 that was not spent on the concert went into UAO’s programming fund, said Mike Freyaldenhoven, UAO

staff adviser and assistant dean of students in the Office of Campus Activities. Freyaldenhoven said the money from the concert was distributed widely into other programs. UAO has a “big three” or traditions programs that they usually bring back every year, Cowart said. These three programs are the comedy show “LOL with UAO,” Sibs N’ Kids weekend and the homecoming concert. Both of the other two of “big three” took place this year and they were supposed to be expanded since the organization had money from the concert, Freyaldenhoven said. However, Sibs N’ Kids weekend stayed the same expense-wise, he said. Last year, the program used $13,000 of the organization’s budget, and this year

The boyfriend of freshman Kayleigh Chambers, 20, who was found dead in her Second Street apartment Thursday, was arrested on unrelated drug charges Thursday evening. Ethan Bishop, 20, was arrested on trafficking charges by the Bowling Green Police Division after contact with the division following Chambers’ death, said a Bowling Green police dispatcher. Bishop was held at the Wood County Justice Center. Bishop was also previously arrested April 10 for trafficking marijuana on the block Chambers was found, according to police reports. The division received a call at 4:36 p.m. Thursday to check on

From the front lobby to the office where Jacob Raderer works, everything is new, giving the new Falcon Heights sort of a “hotellike” feel to it. “It’s interesting to hear the residents talk about it like it’s more of a hotel,” said Raderer, a hall director who also lives in Falcon Heights. “They seem to really like it.” The building’s name, Falcon Heights, marks the second time since 1945 it has been used as a type of housing on campus, but in a different way. The old Falcon Heights was a temporary trailer park on campus consisting of 40 units. The trailers, located where Jerome Library now stands, housed veterans returning to school on the GI

Chambers’ condition at 602 Second St. Police were told she had threatened to harm herself and was in possession of a shotgun, according to a press release from Bowling Green Police. Police set a perimeter around the residence as crisis negotiators attempted to communicate with Chambers via a throw phone and public address system. “They were saying … ‘we’re going to break some windows but don’t be scared,’” said Kasey Ellis, a witness and nearby resident Thursday. With no response or activity in the apartment, the Wood County Special Response Team entered the apartment at 6:50 p.m. and found

This week, The BG News examines what changes will happen while students are away for summer.

Union’s Falcon’s Nest slated to undergo renovations during summer By Eric Lagatta Reporter

MOLLY MCFADDIN | THE BG NEWS

VALENTIS ATHLETICA hosted The Bowling Green Soccer Challenge on April 27th through the 29th in the intramural fields.

Students returning to the University next fall will notice a few changes in dining, particularly in the Union, where the Falcon’s Nest and both restaurants will undergo renovations. Dining services will introduce four new food concepts to the Falcon’s Nest next year, including two new brands, said Mike Paulus, director of dining services. First, Panda Express will replace Zona Mexicana, Paulus said. “It’s unique to the marketplace [since] it doesn’t exist in BG,” Paulus said. “It does me no good if you can go across the street and get it.” Second, Marco’s Pizza will replace 2mato 2night, an option Paulus particularly likes since it helps to support local businesses. The Falcon’s Nest will also include a chicken place called Chicken Dippity, and replacing Wendy’s is what Paulus described as an upscale deli concept with salads, breads, beverages and

other snacks. “What we’re doing is the fresh cuisine concept,” he said. The Falcon’s Nest itself will be completely redesigned to make it more efficient and the size will be increased to make for better flow of customers. The goal with Steak Escape in particular is to redesign it to reduce wait-time from around three minutes to around one minute, Paulus said. Along with adding a new burger concept, Steak Escape will also be providing breakfast next fall as well, he said. Sophomore Jesse Coyle is looking forward to the changes in The Union next fall. “I think more people will go to the Union and use the dining services BG offers,” Coyle said. Coyle is most excited about eating at the fresh cuisine location and Marco’s Pizza, she said. Also, the Bowling Greenery and the Black Swamp Pub will be combined in the Pub’s space

UAO From Page 1 Freyaldenhoven said it used almost that amount, but he isn’t sure of the exact number yet. Another traditions or “big three” event, “LOL with UAO,” which is a spring comedy event, was supposed to grow because of the money from the concert. However, the event didn’t have a big name comedian. “With our ‘LOL with UAO’ we did have plans to have a bigger comedian come in for that, but unfortunately the comedians we had selected weren’t able to come,” Cowart said. The organization spent $6,950 on “LOL with UAO,” whereas last year they spent $30,000, according to the organization’s expense sheets. Since the money wasn’t spent on the other traditions programs, some of it went into other spring programming such as The Buried Life, Dan Savage, Improv Everywhere and Style your

Soles, Freyaldenhoven said. The Buried Life was a new event this year and occurred as a result of the homecoming concert cancellation, Cowart said. The program cost the organization $25,000, according to UAO’s expense sheet. “It Gets Better,” an event where Dan Savage, columnist and founder of the It Gets Better project, spoke, also happened because of the absence of the concert, Cowart said. The event cost $17,531.43, according to UAO’s expense sheet. Improv Everywhere, a group that came to the University, was projected to cost $9,500, which was the amount UAO paid the group, Freyaldenhoven said. UAO doesn’t have the final numbers for how much the event cost, but he said it is most likely a little more than that amount because of blank CDs the organization bought to promote the event. “Style your Soles,” the TOMS Shoes sale, was bigger this year than expected, Freyaldenhoven said.

“[It] was slated to be a 150 pairs of shoes event, ended up being 310 pairs so that was another expense we just created to figure out how to redistribute that money a little bit,” Freyaldenhoven said. Last year the organization spent $2,142.45 on the event, according to the organization’s expense sheet. This year it spent 310 pairs multiplied by $20, Freyaldenhoven said. T he nu mbers Freyaldenhoven provided equal approximately $6,200 total that the organization spent on the event. “Not a ton more money but the program was allowed to just spend to wherever it was naturally stopped,” Freyaldenhoven said. The organization still didn’t use the entire $70,000 it allotted to the concert in its budget, Freyaldenhoven said, so it will use the leftover money for next year’s concert. “It should be minimal, I have no idea if it’s going to be ... $10,000 or $15,000 but I expect it to be somewhere in

that amount that will rollover,” Freyaldenhoven said. “We’ll take that money, combine it with the money we’ve committed to next year for the concert and add it to it so our reach is further when it comes to being able to bring in big name artists.” Freyaldenhoven said the group is attempting to get very recognizable artists for the concert, such as artists that may fall into the “top five” or “top 10” category. “We did a survey on what genre the students want to come,” said Maureen Carr, UAO president. “Students voted alternative rock or country.” The organization has already started to work on the fall concert, Freyaldenhoven said. Carr said she thinks it is important the three traditions programs happen every year. “I think students look forward to them every year,” Carr said. “We do offer a lot of new events every year but I think it’s important to keep the ones students look forward to.”

UNION From Page 1 next fall. “We’re molding them into one,” Paulus said. Apart from an increase in seating, there will be new furniture, a new design for the bar and a separate billiard room, which will feature all of the sport memorabilia currently in the pub. The menus for both places will be combined to offer the best of both worlds, Paulus said. “We’re making sure we keep the favorites on there because people get very passionate about that,” he said. The combination will allow the kitchen on the second floor, where the Greenery is currently housed, to focus exclusively on catering. The likely name would be something like the Black Swamp Pub and Bistro, Paulus said. The Kreischer Sundial will also be experiencing one major change in what it offers. The chicken bowl will be regularly available “due to campus popularity,” Paulus said. Founders Keepers, however, will close after this semester. “The reality is, location, location, location,” Paulus said. “Nobody’s there.” Founders’ income has dropped 45 percent since last fall, he said. The Outtakes in Founders, however, will remain open and will move down the hall so its size can be increased and more food options can be offered. Coyle currently lives in Founders but does not regularly eat at the dining hall. “I think it’s probably good that it’s closing because not many people are going there this year so it’s good that they’ll be focusing on places people go to more,” she said. Tim Hoepf, General Manager of Founders, said he agrees with the decision to close Founders on account of little traffic.   “We have a small but loyal customer base but I think we are just out of the way and not a convenient location,” he said. “Students simply prefer to eat at our other locations.” Hoepf will be managing the Black Swamp Pub and Bistro starting next fall. “This will be a restaurant the campus and BG will be proud to have in our community,” he said. “I’m personally very excited to be part of this.” All construction will begin May 12 and will be completed by no later than July 30, Paulus said. “This is the time to get in there and do it with the least disruption,” he said. The main goal of all the changes is to add more variety for students, Paulus said. “It’s all about you guys,” he said.

HEIGHTS From Page 1 Bill, according to a 1946 Key Yearbook. Come fall 2012, the lobby will hold a piece of the old Falcon Heights. Sarah Waters, director of Residence Life, and Raderer plan to hang either a large photo or plaque describing the history of Falcon Heights and how the new hall got its old name. “It’s nice to see the starting point,” Waters said. Trailers lined the field in rows where the old Falcon Heights was located, from about 1945 through the mid1960s, according to The Key, a University yearbook turned magazine. “I’m fortunate enough to have lived in this Falcon Heights,” Raderer said. “I can’t imagine what it would be like

to live in one of those trailers, but I guess it was the best solution at the time.” The sense of history the name brings to campus is what makes Falcon Heights special, Raderer said. “There’s sort of a historical tinge to it,” Raderer said about the two Falcon Heights locations. “It’s cool that we’ve been able to maintain that.” The new Falcon Heights, a residence hall on campus, is a little bit different than the Falcon Heights that once stood where Jerome Library now stands. While the new residence hall pulls in an income primarily from its student residents, the old trailer park pulled in revenue from a single Coca-Cola vending machine, according to a 1946 BG News article. Like the new residence hall,

the old trailer park was headed by a council of students who helped to manage the revenue and activities within the “community.” While the old trailer park may have been like its own community, the council in the new residence hall has been trying to keep that sense of community in a hall where some students have the luxury of having their own bedrooms and bathrooms. “The hall council is very active over there,” Waters said. “Its definitely got a good sense of community. Despite being named after a former trailer park, the new Falcon Heights has a few more amenities than its trailer predecessors of the 1940s. Rather than one, the new Falcon Heights has multiple vending machines, as opposed to a single CocaCola machine in the former

trailer park. The new building also has more than 300 bathrooms, whereas the original Falcon Heights had no running water. It has multiple rooms, while a Falcon Heights trailer had one main room, Waters said. Although population didn’t triple at the start of the 2011 school year, it did welcome in one of the largest freshman classes on record and along with it, a new Falcon Heights. With its “hotel-like” feel, the new Falcon Heights may be a lot different from the old one, but the idea to name it came about when students started pushing for it back in summer 2010, Waters said. “The difference in complexity of the two is just an interesting juxtaposition,” Waters said. “It was about resurrecting that name and bringing it back.”

Monday, April 30, 2012 When pushing for the name, students also didn’t realize a similarity between the two Falcon Heights. Similar to recent enrollment, in 1945 housing opened up to an increased student population, according to a 1946 Key Yearbook. Such a similarity is another reason why the University was “reclaiming something from the past” in bringing back the name Falcon Heights, Waters said. While the old Falcon Heights welcomed students with an open field rather than a new lobby, the new Falcon Heights does so with a fireplace and a balcony area, right outside of Raderer’s office. “It’s funny, I don’t know if many students know, but this building has something more than just its hotel-like qualities,” Raderer said. “It’s got history.”

her dead. Police are working with the Wood County Coroner’s Office to investigate the incident, said Administrative Lt. Brad Biller. “[The] protocols in place were followed,” Biller said. “I know this is a difficult time for the University community,” said President Mary Ellen Mazey in an email to students. “Our thoughts are with Kayleigh’s family and friends.” Mazey reminded students that counselors are available on campus and calls can be made to The Link at 419-3521545.

I hate it when people don’t re-rack their weights at the Rec when they are done with them. Be considerate. At a public gym, you would be warned and then kicked out for these actions.

You need to apologize before you get any physical comfort from me again. —STRONG-WILLED AND BROKENHEARTED I hate it when people use being drunk as an excuse to act irrational. Case in point: those who say “I was drunk, it doesn’t matter” after they cheat on their girlfriend or boyfriend. Just because you got blackout drunk doesn’t mean you can make all kinds of mistakes. After all, if you get drunk and stab someone, you’re still going to get in trouble! —DRUNK AND DISORDERLY Someone needs to manage the tunes that play on the floor at the Rec.

Stop ridiculing all the high schoolers for their dresses. Let them have their fun. They don’t need some junior in college ripping on them for their dance pictures.

GUEST COLUMNIST

By now, if someone hasn’t heard about the issue of fracking one can safely say that they’re living under a rock. While there is pun intended, the issues that have arisen recently from the practice certainly aren’t a laughing matter. Fracking, or more correctly known as “fraccing” or “hydrofracking,” is the practice of injecting millions of gallons of chemically altered water and sand underground in order to fracture fine-grained shale rock. Fracturing the shale rock, which contains hydrocar-

bons in the form of natural gas, releases the gas up the pipe to the surface where it can be captured. The media has only recently focused on the practice, but it has been going on for more than 20 years, specifically in the Barnett Shale of Texas. So what’s all of the noise about? Companies have discovered a relatively new way to extract a valuable resource, but it seems it is coming at a cost to communities. Movies like “Gashole” and the short film “Fracked Off” on Journeyman.tv have introduced the country and the world to the potential downsides of fracking. The films interview community members and activists who have been affected by the increased drilling, and the result is not usually

“They may or may not be harming the communities they’re drilling in, but once again this conclusion comes down to providing solid proof.” good. Many cite contaminated drinking water and gas leaks resulting from drilling that lead to health and safety problems. On the other hand, the industry argues that there is no proof that their drilling results in the problems. As each new study comes out, the industry seems to find a way to refute it. Plus, the industry also has its supporters, who often have more power than the local residents. Phelim McAleer, a filmmaker who some may consider the Darth Vader to “Gashole” creator Josh Fox, is a staunch supporter of

the hydrofracking agenda. He claims the media is blowing all of the criticism out of proportion. The problem at this point in time is multifaceted and the mudslinging continues, but the main issue is that there isn’t enough science to validate either side’s opinion. On one hand, the industry is saying that it is following regulations and that the drilling procedures don’t affect drinking water or the environment. With the sudden increase

COLUMNIST

This past Sunday morning I was given a link to a cartoon where President Reagan schools President Obama on the evils of socialism. I want the five minutes it took to watch this video back. What utter nonsense it was. To think Obama is anywhere near a social-

“If a real liberal like Lyndon Johnson or Franklin Roosevelt were in office, the Republicans in our country would collectively have their heads explode.” ist is ridiculous; he barely passes for liberal. If a real liberal like Ly ndon Joh nson or Franklin Roosevelt were in office, the Republicans in our countr y would collectively have their heads explode. The right-wing media machine has worked doubly hard since Obama has

taken office to make the more intellectually challenged among us believe he is one step below a Soviet premier. This is pure and simple drivel. To all my fellow students who believe the Republican tripe about socialism I have four words: don’t fall for it.

Whether or not you are a Democrat, Republican, or undecided, we live in a quasi-socialist society. To not believe this is at best folly and at worst lying to oneself. We are all on the dole to a certain extent. Bowling Green State University is a state-funded university. Before state funding, college was the domain of the wealthy and privileged; lack of government

Personal beliefs are motivators for life success TARA KELLER COLUMNIST

Do you believe in ghosts? This question was pingponged around my floor this busy week before finals. Whether it was because we were truly interested in discovering the truth about the paranormal, or preexam week nervosa was rapidly descending, is actually unimportant. The important thing was that we were having a conversation about belief and how utterly essential it is to believe in something. Now, I believe in God. I’m not overly religious, but I like to think there’s someone

up there keeping things in check. Saying that, I also applaud atheists. I may not agree with their views, but the fact most of them ardently believe in the inexistence of something is wonderful. Not all beliefs are religious. My little brother believes Duke basketball is the best team to ever grace this planet. Every game he suits up in one of several blue team hoodies and roots them on through wins and losses. It makes him feel he’s part of something and gives him something to look forward to. All beliefs should do this. Most of the children of the world believe in Santa Claus. A silly belief? Of course. But almost every eye read-

“I may not agree with their views, but the fact most of them ardently believe in the inexistence of something is wonderful.” ing this column can remember that week of gloriously magical anticipation before Christmas when you knew without a doubt that the man in a red suit was going to shimmy his way down your chimney and give you that toy you simply couldn’t imagine life without. People believe they’re going to find true love. They walk into a restaurant or into the first day of class and wonder: “What if she’s the one?” That excitement, that belief that somehow, some way, there is somebody for

everybody is perhaps the most important belief of all. Unfortunately, there are those people who truly don’t believe in anything. They rely on themselves for satisfaction and for comfort. They don’t raise their eyes to heaven, or sometimes even hell, for a reassuring nod. Their days must be dark, I imagine. Not having being able to stand up and fight for some-

Softball wins three of four games to keep pace in MAC By Ethan Easterwood Reporter

The BG softball team continued its Mid-American Conference dominance by going 3-1 this past weekend, earning a split with Northern Illinois and a sweep of Western Michigan as well as setting conference records. The Falcons started off slow as they lost to the Huskies of Northern Illinois in their first game of the home doubleheader on Friday, falling 4-3. BG was led offensively by Katie Yoho and Rachel Proehl. Yoho nailed a home run and Proehl went 3-for-4 with a scored run.

Northern Illinois got on board first, scoring a run in the first inning. The Falcons responded with a run of their own in the bottom of the first inning, thanks to Andrea Arney who hit a double that sent a run home. BG scored two more runs in the bottom of the third due to Yoho’s ninth homer of the season that drove both runs in. The Huskies returned with three runs of their own in the following four innings, scoring two in the fifth and the go-ahead run in the seventh. The Falcons punished the Huskies in game two by a score of 15-2, breaking several school and MAC records. BG broke the school

records for most home runs in a game (six) and home runs in one inning (four). Both stand as MAC records as well. Junior Hannah Fulk had two home runs and four RBI setting her career highs. Paige Berger had a home run as well as a double with three RBI. Arney snapped her 14-game drought with her home run, earning her tenth of the year. Erika Stratton, not to be forgotten, added another home run. The Falcons scored two sevenrun innings, including the record breaking third inning with four home runs. Even with the bats on fire, Fulk secured the single season walk

record by earning her 38th in the second game. The junior is now sitting in second place on the career list with 81 chasing the record of 121. “That was the first time all year that we had the entire team on track offensively, and that was really exciting,” said head coach Shannon Salsburg. “We’ve been waiting for that moment, and it usually comes from a rally or just a game where the kids want it. The next thing you know you get back-to-back hits or back-to-back home runs. Wherever it came from, I hope it stays.” The momentum would stay with the Falcons as they swept Western

Michigan with scores of 4-0 on Saturday and 2-1 on Sunday; a fine finish for the seniors of the team on their senior day. The sweep brings the Falcons to a 13-4 record in the MAC as they maintain second place for the MAC tournament with a .764 win percentage. They trail Ball State (11-3) who has a .785 win percentage on fewer games played. The Falcons have concluded their home games for the season as they will travel to Oxford, Ohio, to play Miami in a doubleheader on Friday, before traveling to Ball State to finish the season this Saturday and Sunday. BG is now 34-17 overall.

Falcons take two of three from Ohio to keep conference tournament hopes alive By Nick Juskewycz Reporter

FOOTBALL

The BG baseball team kept its MidAmerican Conference postseason hopes alive by taking two of three games from Ohio University this weekend. The BG baseball team hung on to defeat Ohio University, 4-3 on Friday at Stellar Field. The Bobcats scored three runs in the seventh inning, and put two runners on in the ninth inning, but Nick Bruns induced a ground out to the only batter he faced to close the game for his sixth save of the season. Matt Malewitz started the game for BG and continued his strong run of recent starts. He didn’t give up a run until the seventh inning, finishing the game with 6 2/3 innings pitched, allowing three runs on nine hits and no walks, striking out five. Two of the runs in the seventh were inherited runners that Ben Singer allowed to score. Despite allowing 11 hits and three walks, Brent Choban pitched the

entire game for Ohio, allowed four runs in eight innings. Brian Bien, T.J. Losby, Andrew Kubuski and Jessee Rait each had two hits for the Falcons, while Kubuski, Jeremy Shay and Brandon Howard each had RBIs for the Falcons. The Falcons got on the board with an RBI single by Kubuski in the bottom of the first. BG added two runs in the fifth inning and a run in the sixth. Following a rainout Saturday, the Falcons split a doubleheader with the Bobcats on Sunday, losing the first game 11-0 and winning the second 8-7. The Falcons improved to 18-25 and 7-11 in MAC play while Ohio has dropped to 23-20 and 12-6 in the MAC. “We came into today with a chance to win the series and that’s exactly what we did,” said coach Danny Schmitz. “We’re happy with that and we had a bad inning and we gave a few extra outs out there and didn’t capitalize but the kids did not quit and they did a great job.”

Ohio came out strong on the afternoon for the first game of the double header by defeating the Falcons 11-0 to even the series at 1-1. The effort came behind Bobcat pitcher Jason Moulton, who threw a complete game shutout along with 18 hits for the Ohio offense. BG did record eight hits of their own and only trailed by four runs heading into the ninth, but the Bobcats tacked on seven runs to put the game away. However the Falcons had other ideas for the second contest. In an up and down match that included 11 hits for each team and six combined errors, both squads had a lot to play for. The Bobcats were trying to keep within striking distance of Kent State for first place in the MAC while the Falcons try to position themselves for a late season run to make the MAC tournament. Despite Patrick Martin pitching two innings on Friday, he started the game for the Falcons because of the number of injuries to the BG pitch-

DEVIN From Page 4 in fracking in the Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York regions there aren’t enough regulations set up to deal with potential side effects of fracking. T ha n k f u l ly, t he Environmental Protection Agency has just come out with a new regulation regarding the capture of escaping methane, but this won’t be enough to satisfy environmentalists. There also isn’t enough science on the side of those claiming to be affected by natural gas drilling. Reports continue to come out, but many are dismissed by the gas companies and sometimes by the complainants themselves. They are afraid of going up against a large corporation.

PAUL From Page 4 funding dictated this. Government f unding of education is about equality. It is about helping those among us who cannot afford Harvard or Kenyon. It is about giving the poor and middle class a chance at higher education. It is about economic justice. This is the main tenet of socialism. Make no mistake, the Republican Party in America today wants to destroy any program meant to help the vast majority of Americans. While most of us work and deal with the “real world,” college does provide a sort of cocoon that shields us from the worries of the “real world.” Living in our collec-

There needs to be a strong scientific database set up to record complaints of contamination and their relationship to nearby wells. Water wells a nd groundwater also need to be tested in areas before they are drilled, giving scientists data that they can compare post-drilling results with. The Obama administration claims that over the next 10 years the influx of drilling operations in the Marcellus Shale region will create over 600,000 jobs. With “job creators” being the buzzword in a down economy and an upcoming presidential campaign, it’s hard to argue against such a powerful industry. And, with some predictions stating that the reserves will last for close to 100 years, many but not all of these

“Just this last week, we had yet another example of what is bogus.” tive cocoon though does not give us the right to be politically apathetic. It is our duty to be smart, vigilant, and discerning. We must examine the dialogue in this election year and decide what is real and what is bogus. Just this last week, we had yet another example of what is bogus. One of Mitt Romney’s aides came up with a doozy. He stated that the auto industry bailout that saved General Motors and Chrysler from insolvency was Romney’s idea. This is a complete lie. Romney is on record stating that he was against

WWW.BGNEWS.COM

jobs could be sustained for more than a generation. It would be a shame to throw away all of that potential, but the industry can’t continue to barrel ahead amidst such criticism from citizens claiming that they have been hurt by the companies. It truly isn’t in their interest to contaminate groundwater, even if it isn’t their intention. They may or may not be harming the communities they’re drilling in, but once again this conclusion comes down to providing solid proof. The term ‘fracking’ gets dirtier and dirtier the more it is used in the media. To the industry’s ire, it has become the flag that the environmentalists and citizens wave as they battle against the industry. It’s important for those not in the fray to avoid get-

ting caught up in words and connotations. We should remain objective and take a reasoned approach to the situation. The natural gas industry could give the U.S. economy a significant boost and help us decrease our dependence on foreign resources. Yet it would be better for the companies to slow down operations and allow measured tests to be done so they can proceed with more support from the people. And if tests conclude that the practice is harmful, then is it really worth the jobs to sacrifice someone’s health? If so, then we will need to begin directing more energy at the politicians and push for more regulation.

the bailout; he would have let the automobile industry collapse. Once again the Republican Party is on the wrong side of history. The auto bailout worked. Because of government help, a whole segment of our workforce was saved and GM and Chrysler are healthy again. This is a great example of government expenditure working. This is a great example of socialism at work. So how do Romney’s and the Republican Party’s fabrications apply to the college student? First, many of you are American citizens who are getting your first opportunity to vote for the president. Please realize what a privilege this is and vote wisely. Second, realize that there are Americans out there who are still margin-

alized and still need that helping hand. Realize how fortunate we all are to be here at Bowling Green and how many of us got here. Many of us are here on Pell grants. Many of us are here because of student loans. These are socialist programs. These things are products of socialist thought. These are not Republican Party creations. Realize who has your best interest at heart and who wants to lend that helping hand. Politics affects everything in our lives. It is up to all of us to understand just what politics can give and what it can take away.

ing staff. The short rest did not seem to bother Martin in the slightest as he gave BG the hot start by throwing three perfect innings. In the fourth, after a Logan Walker error for BG and a double by Ohio’s Tyler Wells with no outs, Martin found himself against the wall. After a conference at the pitching mound, the Falcons responded and Martin held Ohio to just one run in the inning. “He’s been a real trooper,” Schmtiz said. “Patrick has been one of those guys if we have to use him the first game of the series and his pitch count isn’t very high we try and bring him back Sunday … he did a terrific job.” In the fifth inning, the Falcon offense came alive and tacked on four runs including a Jeremy Shay homerun over the leftfield fence to make the score 5-1. BG seemed in complete control of the game until the top of the seventh. Ohio began a rally that started with Dan Schmidt reaching first on an error, and was then capped off by a Tyler Wells three-run homerun to give Ohio the 6-5 lead. Wells went 6 for 11 between the two contests with three RBI’s and three runs. The Falcons continued to fight and broke through in the eighth inning when TJ Losby hit a two RBI double to give the Falcons the 7-6 advantage. The Falcons were three outs away from a victory however, the Bobcats didn’t quit. Ohio’s Ian Mezlak scored to tie the game from an Ethan Newton single, who then advanced

7

to third on a wild throw in from Jake Thomas at center field. With the dangerous Wells coming up to bat, with one runner on third and only one out, BG had to find a way to keep the score tied. The Falcons succeeded as Wells hit a fly ball into right field that was caught by Jesse Rait, who then fired the ball to Jeremy Shay at home plate and tagged out Newton to end the inning. Shay instantly took that momentum into the bottom of the ninth and singled through the left side. Fred Sharp came into pinch run for Shay to give the Falcons some speed on the bases. Matt Pitzulo came up next and singled down the right field line advancing Sharp all the way to third. Ohio elected to intentionally walk Logan Walker to load the bases in order to get a force out at home. After Brandon Howard lined out to the shortstop it was up to Jake Thomas. Before Thomas could even get a crack at the game winning hit, Tyler Stage threw a wild pitch that catcher Cody Gaertner couldn’t stop and Sharp slid in at home to greet the celebrating Falcons to cap off an 8-7 win. “It wasn’t the prettiest W in the world but a good ‘W,’” Schmitz said. “Each year you hope to have a turning point in the season and I’m hoping a victory like this can maybe get us going because we have three weekends left and each game is very important now.” BG will return to action this Friday for a three game series in Ypsilanti, Mich. as they face Eastern Michigan. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Friday, 3 p.m Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.
