“The New Black” deals with issues in black community

Monday, February 17, 2014


Film to show at Woodland Mall Cinema on Feb. 19 By Amirah Adams Reporter

A documentary covering race, religion and sexual orientation is bound to be controversial, but it also has the power to bring important social issues to the forefront. “The New Black” will be shown at the Woodland Mall Cinema on Feb. 19 at 6:30 p.m. The film is about gay rights issues in the black community and homophobia in the black church. Senior Shaunda Brown arranged for the film to be shown because it covers a topic she feels needs to be discussed. “I saw a conversation that wasn’t being talked about on campus,” Brown said. “A lot of students have issues talking about it because of the religious aspect.” When she began to promote the event, people weren’t surprised that the film was being screened, but about where it was being screened. “I didn’t want to have it screened on campus because I wanted it to be a community conversation,” Brown said. “We’re all students but the community also makes up our experience here as well.” When her request to have the film viewed at the movie theater in Woodland Mall was accepted, she was just as surprised as her peers. “I was completely like ‘this is not happening,’” Brown said. “I was in complete disbelief because I’ve been here long enough to

know they don’t really have black movies at all.” The acceptance of the request was only the beginning. Her next goal for the screening was to sell 104 tickets, which would fill the theater. “I feel like if they were even willing to say yes, I needed to make it happen,” Brown said. Students like sophomore Luke Zona think the screening of this film is a great thing. “I think it’s great that she was able to do that,” Zona said. “It’s helping to do what’s right for human rights.” Other students weren’t aware that the film was being screened, but are interested in going. “A lot of things like that aren’t shown in BG,” sophomore Zack Sturkey said. “I think it’s great. I would go see it.” Brown expects people to be caught off guard by the film. She was shocked herself when she first saw the film at a conference. “Even being from what would be called a stereotypical black community, I had moments throughout the film where I was like ‘whoa,’” Brown said. She hopes that people will be inspired by the film, and take away a positive message. “I want people to understand the spaces that they are in and call their own, and then challenge those notions,” Brown said. Tickets can only be purchased online at http://www. for $12 prior to Feb. 19.

Winterfest connects community members, tourists in demonstrations, cook-offs By Kathryne Rubright Reporter

After two hours of work, Josh Smith was covered in snow and had turned two 300-pound blocks of ice into two sculptures of Cupid. Smith gave an ice sculpting demonstration at Winterfest on Saturday. “It’s just straight fun,” Smith said of his job.

He has been sculpting ice for a year and a half. Smith started working at Ice Creations by bagging and moving ice. Ice Creations is based in Napoleon and makes ice sculptures for various occasions, including all of the sculptures at Winterfest. “Once you start working there … [sculpting]

Potholes blamed on frigid temperatures By Stevon Duey Reporter


THE WINTRY weather has caused several potholes to appear on campus and in the city.

Bowling Green city workers are struggling to keep up with road repairs on East Wooster Street. Potholes plague the city’s busiest street west of I-75. The Public Works Department has been trying its best to keep up with repairs, but continuous falling snow and ice has prevented city workers from making more permanent repairs. Public Works Director Brian Craft

said heavy snowfall and frigid temperatures are to blame. “This winter has been much worse [than usual],” Craft said. “But we aren’t alone.” Bowling Green and surrounding cities saw more than two times the average amount of snowfall accumulations last month than in past years, according to the National Weather Service website. Craft said the department is using a cold patch process to repair potholes, but those repairs are only a

short-term solution. A cold patch functions as a temporary solution when temperatures are too low and moisture is too high to put down a more permanent patch. As temperatures rise and fall, a freeze-thaw cycle breaks down paved roads and cold patches are easily undone. “Nothing is more frustrating for us than the freeze-thaw

Workshops, sessions allowed students to self-grow, learn traits of being leader By Liz Sparks Reporter

At the spring Leadership Conference on Sunday, students learned that they need to think of themselves as passengers. “You’re a leader because you’re going some place that others want to be,” Dafina Lazurus-Stewart said. “Thinking of yourself as a passenger instead of a pilot will give you a better idea of what goes on in the cabin, instead of just in the cockpit.” Lazurus-Stewart, associate professor in the Department of Higher Education and Student Affairs, gave an opening speech about what it means to be a leader. She said that it is important for leaders to think of themselves as a member of an organization instead of a officer or executive board member to know what the people that make up the organization

are thinking. She spoke about the vision and mission of being a leader; she also emphasized the importance of the climb to becoming a leader, not just being at the mountaintop. “Leadership is the small things that no one else would notice,” LazarusStewart said. Ann Marie Chaya, part of NRHH, organized the event because she finds leadership important. “There is always something new that you can learn about yourself and community so you can make positive changes,” Chaya said. Lazarus-Stewart ended her speech by telling the students she was going to ask them a question, but before she asked the question, she told them the answer. “Right here.” “Now,” Lazarus-Stewart said, “where are my student leaders?”

Dafina LazarusStewart Ph.D and Associate Professor

The group all shouted in response, “right here.” The event was comprised of three separate sessions each with five available workshops students could attend. The sessions included presentations with various groups such as Vision, Student Leadership Assistants, The Panhellenic Council and others. The workshop titles varied from “How to be an LGBTQ-Inclusive Leader” to “Disney’s Magical World of Leadership!” and “Fighting Apathy with Accountability.” Most of the students attended for organizations they are involved with like Hall Council and SLA, but others went for their own benefit. Briana Stewart, a

junior, went to learn more about herself as a leader. “I am just trying to find out what I’ve already got [as a leader],” Stewart said. “I want to lead the way I lead.” Caitlin Shortridge, a freshman, also attended for herself. She said her favorite workshop was one called Introverts as Leaders, a session about people who identify as introverts and their own abilities to lead. “Being an extrovert, it’s nice to see a different perspective,” Shortridge said. “Also, how to handle situations and relationships with both introverts and extroverts.” Freshmen Megan Reid and Kayla Sands both enjoyed t he Disney workshop. “I love Disney,” Sands said. “It’s such a passion of mine. It was interesting to see how I had become a leader through the little things they taught me subconsciously.” Free Gas Free Basic Cable Free Shuttle Recycling

I wanted to write to thank Ian Zulick for his column last week [‘Blind support of troops … ’ Feb. 14]. It was a column that allowed him to openly express his negative opinion of American soldiers, thanks to our country’s freedom of the press and freedom of speech. Unfortunately, it seems like Zulick failed to correlate his ability to write and say what he wants with the impact our military has on these democratic principles. To be clear, I’m not saying that our freedoms as American citizens are protected by the fighting in Iraq and our continued presence in Afghanistan. Zulick had a problem with people assuming that soldiers are fighting for our freedoms, citing the Patriot Act and Guantanamo Bay as instances in which Americans and others are restricted in order to protect liberty. There are two main criticisms I have with this— first, the servicemen and women he is so adamantly against have little to do with the passage or implementation of the Patriot Act or the funding of Guantanamo Bay; if the military wasn’t involved with these two programs, contracted civilians would likely be hired by the government to continue these operations. It seems that the bulk of the responsibility for these very unpopular programs rests with our lawmakers, including President Obama, who has stated on the record several times that he plans

to close the U.S. installation in Cuba and has consistently failed to do so. Secondly, due to the very nature of terrorism, it is difficult to quantify how our presence abroad has protected our freedoms at home; however, I would remind Zulick that if not for the soldiers that he refuses to support, Osama bin Laden would still be hiding in a compound in Pakistan, actively engaged in planning more terrorist attacks against our nation. And while he likens members of the military to war criminals, I would ask that he review the statistical data that confirms an overwhelming majority of soldiers abide by the many laws and rules of engagement [such as the Law of Armed Conflict and the Geneva Convention protocols] that dictate how war fighting should be conducted to reduce collateral damage. In closing, while I appreciate the fact that Zulick and others are not proud of what our country’s elected representatives have ordered its military to do, I want to remind him that the service members he is so dismissive of are people, too. They are mothers, fathers, neighbors, volunteers, students at the University and members of the community that deserve respect and our support, just as any other American citizen. And when he asks, “How can we call every single soldier a hero when some of them end up committing war crimes?” I ask in response, how can you dismiss an entire group of people who have volunteered to risk their lives to make you safer?

Minimum wage wouldn’t benefit people, economy “Yet, the actual existence of a wage floor works against the incentives to attend a university.”

davood dadfar COLUMNIST One of the classic debates Americans have been consistently having for the past 30 years has been the advancement and growth of minimum wages. President Obama recently called for a raise in the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10. The call to raise wages comes at a controversial time as the United States has just recovered from the greatest financial meltdown in history, followed by bankruptcies in its once overpaid auto industries, but all of this still isn’t uncommon. So what’s the problem with a little increase? The problem with altering minimum wages is the impact it has on natural markets and the demand for certain wages. If a car wash attendant is only worth $5/hour, then why should he be forced to get at least $7.95? As a result, the excess resources [money] are expended for non-value added services that present no real market value to society. In other words, the extra $2.95 isn’t creating any more benefit to the customers. These non-value added services start off by decreasing margins for businesses, increasing prices for customers, and creating more obstacles for businesses to advance. Furthermore, the actual advancement of these wages

could result in less spending. If you decided to opt out of washing your car due to the increased price, then what will the car wash attendant do for a living? Naturally, most college students support increasing minimum wages. Some may even graduate just to get a degree that pays a minimum wage. Yet, the actual existence of a wage floor works against the incentives to attend a university. Students have less incentive to attend four year colleges and gain degrees if their non-college graduate counterparts can work in factories or assembly lines for near similar wages without the additional burden of debt that follows. In the end, it’s not all about financial reward, either. An academic institution has the ability to create a vast amount of intrinsic value into its students. In order to spotlight the value on these skills and appeal to incoming students, price floors like minimum wages should be removed as they ultimately destroy the value attained at an academic institution.

Orr gets 200th career win on Saturday Men’s basketball avoids being defeated by 3rd consecutive buzzer-beater By Cameron Teague Robinson Sports Editor

It took four attempts, but head men’s basketball coach Louis Orr recorded win number 200 of his career and number 100 in his time as the Falcons’ coach. For the third game in a row, the Falcons’ opponent had the last possession with the chance to win, but this time the Falcons’ defense came up with the stop. “We had a bad feeling the past two games,” said BG’s Spencer Parker. “We just didn’t want that feeling again so we had to get some stops down the stretch and get this win.” With six seconds left in the game, the Cardinals dribbled the ball to the free throw line, but the Falcon defense did not allow them to get a shot off in time. The late defensive stop gave the Falcons the 66-64 win and moved the Falcons to 11-14 and 5-7 in the Mid-American Conference with six games left. “We have been in a lot of close games,” coach Louis Orr said. “They played with courage, stayed confident and played until the end. That’s all you can ask for your guys.” Junior guard Anthony Henderson made the game-winning layup to give the Falcons a 65-64 lead with 44 seconds left. Junior Richaun made the front end of the 1-and-1, but missed the next free throw, giving the Falcons their 66-64 lead. The Falcons overcame shooting just 39 percent from the field and 16 percent from behind for three in the second half. For the second straight game the Falcons got out to a fast start as they led 13-4 five minutes into the game. The Cardinals’ use of the three shot got them back in the game as they shot 47 percent the

The Bowling Green State University women’s track and field team had a successful showing at the Grand Valley State University meet. Brooke Pleger and Jasmine Redman had dominant performances in the beginning while the relay teams managed to close the meet out strong. They also hit another automatic qualifying mark. The Falcons now have two days to rest and prepare for the Mid-American Conference Indoor championship. The team managed to kick things off with Redman and fellow teammate Brittany Sinclair racing in the 400 and 5000 meter events. Both managed to hit automarks in their respective events, giving the Falcons a total of 10 for the year. Redman’s time of 17:26.08 exceeded the automark by seven seconds, while Sinclair posted a new personal best of 56.53 to achiever hers. Lou Snelling, the Falcons’ head track coach, was happy to see her qualify by exceeding the automark. “It was good stuff for her, we felt she should be confident going into the event and we’re glad she exceeded it,” Snelling said. Pleger, a junior, continued the stride for her team by dominating the weight throw event. She managed not only to break BG’s weight throw record of 63.975, but she also became the thirteenth player in the country to throw more than 67 feet. Those records allow her to participate in the national championship weight throw event. It was a special moment for Pleger and the Falcons. “It was one of those moments,” Snelling. said. “Before it even landed, you knew it was going to be a special throw. She has a real shot at getting the national championship.” The following day was also good for the Falcons as they competed in the 1600 relay race event. Out of 24 total schools, BG won it in first place with a time of 3:49.32, which marks the first time the Falcons have surpassed the 3:50 mark this season. Snelling said that this effort gives them a good shot at the championship game. Redshirt freshmen Heather Baruxes and Lindsay Kaatz set new personal records in their events to close the day. Baruxes came in sixth with a time of 10:23.30 and Kaatz ran a time of 2:21.24. With the MAC Indoor championship two weeks away, Snelling said the main thing for the team to do is realize that they control what happens in the event. “We’re in a much better spot than last year, we control our destiny,” Snelling said. “If we do well, good things will happen ... we need to be ready for that.”

Falcons get 2nd win of season against Eagles By Tara Jones Assistant Sports Editor

The BG women’s basketball team overcame Eastern Michigan’s grueling zone defense and claimed a win on Feb. 15 by a score of 61-56. With Saturday’s win, the Falcons advanced to 21-3 overall and to 11-1 in the Mid-American Conference. BG has won seven games in a row. Nearly halfway through the first half, the Falcons went 21.4 percent on 3-of-14 from the field while the Eagles went 7-of-14

for 50.0 percent. By the end of the half, the Falcons increased their field goal percentage to 37.1 percent and Eastern Michigan dropped to 37.5 percent. By the end of the game, the Falcons finished 36.5 percent from the field and 25.0 percent from three-point range on 7-of-28. Eastern Michigan went 33.9 percent from field goal range and 23.8 percent from behind the arc. Seniors Jillian Halfhill and Alexis Rogers were the only two Falcons to post double-digit scoring efforts, but both players

finished with a double-double. Halfhill finished with a game-high 21 points and 10 rebounds. Rogers added 13 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Rogers also recorded seven assists, a total that set a new career best. Head coach Jennifer Roos said that the rebounding of Rogers at the end of the game and the play of Halfhill helped the Falcons come out on top. “Our seniors know the difference of playing an opponent in

The BG gymnastics team struggled on several apparatuses this weekend, posting a 48.050 on bars. The Falcons finished in second place in a three-team meet in College Park, Md., beating Yale 193.875 to 188.525 and losing to first-place Maryland who had a score of 194.675. “One area we need to do better [in] is stuck landings on our bar dismounts,” coach Kerrie Turner said. “While the scores didn’t reflect this, the team did work on details all week long and made some excellent improvements on their routines.” The team got off to a rough start and was not able to overcome the deficit Maryland gave them. “It is always hard when you have a start like that because we know we were capable of doing better, but at that point there is nothing you can do but move forward and focus on making the rest of the meet the best that you can,” said BG gymnast Alyssa Nocella. The team now falls to 6-5 overall of the season and even with the defeat, the Falcons get a sixth win, which is the most wins in a single season since the 2002 season. “Recruiting, training, mind set and all the other factors that go into a collegiate program have really

brought us to this point and we plan to continue building on this as our program continues to grow,” Turner said. Despite the team’s loss, the Falcons were resilient and ended the meet on a good note especially on floor and vault. The Falcons posted a 48.975 on vault, the team’s best event with Amanda Lievendag, Lauren Feely, and Nocella achieving a 9.800 or better score. “We did not have our best meet but kept fighting until the very end,” Nocella said. “We had a rough start on bars and beam, but really came together and finished with two strong solid rotations on the floor and vault.” Along with the floor, Nocella posted a season-high 9.875 on the event. In addition to Megan Harrington, several other Falcons scored a 9.700 score or higher on the event. “This team knows how to fight and finish a meet,” Turner said. “After having to count a fall on balance beam, they really rallied, knowing that meets are never over until the last routine. It really speaks to the character of this team.” BG will return home to Anderson Arena on senior night Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. to face off against MAC opponent Northern Illinois for a chance to improve their conference record.

A RETICULATED Moray Eel is in the lab, which is located in the Life Sciences Building.

Marine biology lab home to different species of fish, open to public for weekly tours By Alex Traczyk Reporter

The University is the only school with a Marine Biology program in Ohio and one of the only schools in the Midwest with a lab accessible to students on campus. Justin Grubb, head coordinator of the Marine Biology Lab, said this is the main reason why he came to the University. “We have students from all around the country that came here for the lab,” Grubb said. “The lab here gives students the unique opportunity to work with aquaria that most labs

don’t let you have.” The lab is located on the second floor of the Life Sciences Building. He said other schools he visited didn’t give students freedom to do what they wanted to in the lab; it was controlled by what the professor wanted them to do. The animals were another reason he decided to study here. The main purpose of the lab is for educational purposes, said Matthew Partin, faculty director of the Marine Lab. There are a variety of animals that anyone can go see in the lab. “Some of the animals come from

breeders, some are donated, some we get from other aquariums and some we buy from pet stores,” Partin said. There is a moray eel, an archerfish, an anglerfish and two white-spotted bamboo sharks to name a few. “We have a little over 5,000 gallons of water in the entire lab, but it can vary when doing water changes,” Grubb said. There isn’t much trouble getting animals unless they are larger in size, Grubb said. The little animals can be ordered online and sent through the mail.

With the way the weather has been lately, some students are beginning to get cabin fever. In an effort to give students an opportunity to leave their residence hall rooms, the University Activities Organization has put together a one-day bus trip to Cleveland in which students can register to take a bus to explore the city for a day. The trip will consist of a visit to The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as well as an opportunity to go ice skating if participants wish and the freedom to explore the city for a day. The trip is part of UAO’s “series” program, directed by Jessica Catellone and Zach Ginther. UAO consists of six different programs, including Fine Arts, Late Night, Series, Social Outreach, Traditions and Special Events. Series hosts about three events a semester, usually including a bus trip of some sort, similar to the Cleveland trip. “We’re really excited about this trip,” said UAO Adviser Mike Freyaldenhoven. “Students don’t realize what Ohio cities can offer.” Freyaldenhoven also explained the importance of the trip in regards to awareness of Black History Month. “We got really lucky with this trip, [The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is] featuring an exhibit that celebrates black musicians,”

Freyaldenhoven said. “This is a great way to show students something historical and cultural for Black History Month.” The advisers aren’t the only ones looking forward to the trip. University Activities Organization member Kaylyn Messenger is also excited about the event. “I definitely think it’s a cool idea for students who haven’t had much of a chance to explore Ohio or even more for those who are from out of state,” Messenger said. “It gives them a cool opportunity for them to see something unique to Ohio.” In addition to bus trips, UAO is also responsible for events like the annual fall concert, the annual comedy show, movie nights and other programming. “We do most of our events on campus,” Freyaldenhoven said. “But we’re committed to giving students a chance to get off campus.” The bus trip to Cleveland is coming up Saturday, Feb. 22. The bus will leave at 9 a.m. and will leave Cleveland at about 7 p.m. that evening. Students can purchase tickets for $5 at the information desk in the Union, and there are 45 spots available. According to an employee at the Union information desk, 11 students are signed up to go on the trip so far. Contact UAO advisor Mike Freyaldenhoven at or visit the Union information desk to sign up for the trip.

Hockey ties Friday, loses Saturday

By Corey Krupa Reporter

The Falcon hockey team earned one point in Friday’s 2-2 tie at Alaska-Anchorage; however, BG fell out of fourth place in the WCHA due to Saturday’s 5-2 loss. Only the top four teams are guaranteed a home playoff game in the first round of the WCHA tournament. On Friday night, goaltender Tommy Burke made 30 saves, while forwards Kevin Dufour and Camden Wojtala scored for the Falcons. The Falcons held a 2-0 lead the majority of Friday night’s game, however the Seawolves scored two goals during the final 14 minutes of regulation

to force overtime. The Falcons had four shots on goal in overtime, but eventually the game ended in a 2-2 tie. “It’s disappointing to lose the lead, but they came at us hard and they’re a good team,” BG head coach Chris Bergeron said. “We made some mistakes on their goals, but give them credit because they took advantage of their opportunities.” In Saturday night’s contest, it was another third period collapse that prevented the Falcons from winning. The Falcons held a 2-1 lead in the third period; however, the Seawolves scored three unanswered goals to eventually beat the Falcons 5-2. “The third period cost us

the game,” Bergeron said. “We didn’t start the third period well with the power play and, unfortunately, it carried on through the rest of the period.” BG received goals from defensemen Ma rcus Perrier and Mike Sullivan in Saturday’s game. Tommy Burke made 17 saves in the loss. “It’s a huge loss in terms of the standings, but there’s nothing we can do about it now,” Bergeron said. “All we can do is prepare for our next two games at Northern and that’s what we’ll do.” Meanwhile in Sochi, Russia BG defenseman Ralfs Freibergs recorded an assist during his Olympic debut Saturday in Team Latvia’s 5-3

loss to Sweden. Freibergs finished the game with seven shifts, totaling 4:56 on ice time. He was not on the ice for any of Sweden’s goals. Freibergs dressed but did not play in Team Latvia’s first two games, a 1-0 loss to Switzerland and a 4-2 loss to the Czech Republic. Team Latvia is 0-3 in the preliminary round and will play Tuesday in a qualification game. The four qualification winners will advance to the quarter-finals on Wednesday. The Falcons will return to the BGSU Ice Arena Friday to face the U.S. National Development Team in an exhibition game. The puck will drop at 7:07 p.m.

Baseball finishes 1-2 in weekend series with Belmont Falcons split double header Saturday, claim loss in final game of series on Sunday By Brett Creamer Assistant Sports Editor

After a long seven-hour road trip to Tennessee, the antsy Falcons had to wait another day to start their season due to the rain. The 2014 season began against Belmont University where the team played a double header on Saturday and the third game on Sunday. In game one, the Falcons were leading 1-0 in the bottom of the 6th inning when the Bruins rallied for two unearned runs to give them a 2-1 lead. While the Falcons threatened to score in the 7th inning, they were unable to capitalize when pinch hitter Matt Smith grounded out to first base to end the game, giving the Bruins their first win of the a season. Bowling Green senior pitch-

er, Cody Apthorpe, started his third consecutive opening day where lasted 5.1 innings on the mound while allowing two unearned runs, three hits and one strikeout. The Falcons lone run came in 4th inning when left-fielder Andrew Kubuski singled through the left side when T.J. Losby scored which gave the Falcons a 1-0 lead. After a tough first game loss, the Falcons found themselves victorious in the second game of the double header 8-3. Bowling Green struck first with scoring the first three runs of the game. The Bruins battled back in the 6th inning with a key two-out, two-run double by Tyler Walsh that tied up the game 3-3. After the score was tied, the Falcons rallied for five runs in the final three innings scoring one run in the 7th, three times in the 8th and one more

in the 9th. The Falcons tallied a total of 16 hits as well on the day. Both Patrick Lancaster and Brian Bien had three hits on the day. Losby went 2-4, with three RBIS to lead the Falcons. Pitcher Ben Singer came in relief where he threw 4.2 innings allowing two earned runs, three hits and two strikeouts while earning the win. The Bruins defeated the Falcons 3-1 in the rubber match on Sunday. This was the second time this weekend where Belmont held Bowling Green to just one run in the series. Despite this, the Falcons scored first in all three games this series. Andrew Lacinak started on the mound for the Falcons and lasted five innings without allowing a run. The Bruins could only manage three hits

against Lacinak during his five innings of work. The Bruins tied and took the lead in the 6th inning on a Matt Kinney fielder’s choice to make the score 1-1. Tyler Walsh singled to center, while Kinney crossed the plate to give the Bruins a 2-1 lead. Belmont scored an insurance run to make the score 3-1 in the 7th inning when Spencer Petett singled scoring Jamie Ritchie. The winning pitcher Patrick McGrath threw seven innings for the Bruins while allowing just one earned run on five hits, and five strikeouts. Greg Brody threw a scoreless inning earning the save. The Falcons’ Devin Daugherty was tagged with the loss. Bowling Green’s next series will be this upcoming Friday when they travel to Murray State to play another threegame set.

She said her team needed to get defensive stops and the offense would come. “Our biggest thing in the huddles and in the [media timeouts], we said we have to get stops or else they’re going to keep running up the score,” Halfhill said. The Falcons will return to the Stroh Center on Feb. 19 as they welcome Central Michigan at 7 p.m.

naturally comes along once you start picking up tools and trying different stuff and having fun,” Smith said. The sidewalks downtown were lined with ice sculptures in front of businesses that sponsored Winterfest. Winterfest is mostly attended by people from northwest Ohio, said Wendy Stram, a Winterfest planning committee co-chair. However, some people traveled in from well beyond that region. “I flew in to cook,” said Kathy Mitterway, a New York City resident who entered the chili and soup cook-off with her friend Drew Hanna. This was her second year traveling to Bowling Green for the cook-off. This past year, she and Hanna

University alumnus Edward Schwartz said he’s all too familiar with the pothole problems in town. “I’ve ridden on the University shuttles around town and been bounced around like a rock tumbler,” Schwartz said. East Wooster Street underwent construction and repaving 10 years ago. The street is full of utility lines under the surface that contributes to the unusually high amount of potholes, Craft said. “The more utilities under

FISH From Page 6 “The lab also gives tours every Thursday and has a class called Bio Lab Tours that is a whole class devoted to giving tours,” said Grubb. “Every Thursday we have some group of students that come and they start off downstairs in the herpetology lab handling those animals and then they come up the marine lab.” Sophomore Lacie Dean visited the lab last fall semester for her Life in the Sea class. “I thought it was very interesting and a good tool that we have as a University to teach us about marine life as close to real life as possible,” Dean said. Dean said even though she was required to go for a class that she would encourage other people to go for the experience because it was entertaining. “The people giving the tour made it easier to write our paper about the fish we chose because they were so enthusi-

placed third in the individual category. “Each year, Kathy almost didn’t make it [to Bowling Green],” Hanna said. Mitterway did not allow the snow to hold her up, and she walked, rode and flew her way to Bowling Green starting at 5 a.m. Friday. On Saturday, she got up at 4:30 a.m. to begin cooking the chili. Eight hours later, the Veteran’s Building at City Park was bustling with people sampling chili. “We usually have over 200 people that come,” said Deborah Wooldridge, an organizer of the cook-off. Wooldridge, president of the Ohio Board of the American Association of University Women, worked with representatives of Zonta Club of Bowling Green and the Bowling Green Women’s Club to

organize the cook-off. The groups will split the proceeds to fund scholarships for women. Others spent the afternoon sampling sandwiches during the Sandwich Stroll, a fundraiser for the Bowling Green Arts Council. “Today’s been good. I have a full house,” said Lori Hanway, owner and manager of A Taste of Amish Deli. At times, there were no available seats in her deli. “I like to do stuff with the community all the time,” Hanway said. She said she appreciates the support she has received from the downtown area. Hanway gave back during Winterfest by donating sandwiches for the Red Cross Fire & Ice fundraiser at Cla-Zel. “I like to give back to the community any way I can,” Hanway said.

the surface, the more likely it is to have potholes,” Craft said. Craft said the Public Works Department has been working day and night to keep up repairs on the roads. During the day, city workers apply patches to the roads while temperatures are above 10 degrees, which makes them more effective. At night, the department turns its focus on keeping the roads clear of ice by running plows and laying rock salt. As more snow is hauled away, citizens will be able to move their cars closer to curbs and city workers can make roads more passable. Working around the clock has taken its toll on the depart-

ment’s budget, however. Public Works has already exhausted nearly its entire yearly overtime budget for employees in just a month and a half. The department may catch a break later this week as temperatures are forecasted to rise to nearly 50 degrees. With higher temperatures, the department will lay a more permanent solution called a durapatch. In order for these patches to be the most effective, low amounts of moisture and precipitation are needed. Other roads in the city are in good shape according to Craft. “We’re hoping to have the problems fixed in maybe a month,” he said.

astic and passionate about the animals,” Dean said. Dean said she liked being able to be so close to the fish and also liked that people were given the opportunity to touch some of the animals. Children are also allowed in the lab whether they are with their schools or just visiting. Sibs N’ Kids weekend is usually the busiest time for the lab because of all the little children that come visit, Grubb said. “What are you going to do with your little kid? Bring them to the marine lab to see fish,” Grubb said. “We get a lot of traffic. I think we get about 2,000 visitors in a year just from groups that we can quantify.” The lab is open Monday through Friday roughly 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. “The lab gives people a place to belong,” Partin said. “Biology students feel like they have a sense of ownership. It is somewhere they can go to hang out, do their homework and take classes. It is a big social network.”
