Obama makes last campaign stop in pivotal Ohio By Charles Babington The Associated Press

CLEVELAND — President Barack Obama made Ohio his final campaign stop Sunday in the tumultuous midterm elections, trying to help hard-pressed Democrats in a state that could prove crucial to his fortunes in two years. Republicans said it was too little and too late, confident their party will pick up more than 40 House seats and regain the majority they lost four years ago. Republican control of the Senate seems less likely, although they expect to gain several seats there, as well as numerous governors’ seats. Obama, bracing for perhaps one of the biggest midterm setbacks in recent times, made a four-state weekend sprint to help embattled Democrats as best he can. He said their chances are good if their supporters turn out heavily on Tuesday. But Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, predicted voters will send a sobering message: “You blew it, President Obama. We gave you the two years to fulfill your promise of making sure that our economy starts roaring back to life again.” As he did in three other states this weekend, the president implored voters in Ohio to recall how poorly the Republicans handled the economy when they were in control, and to give Democrats more time. “It’s up to you to remember that this election is a choice between the policies that got us into this mess and the policies that are leading us out of this mess,” he told about 8,000 people at Cleveland State University. Obama said Republicans would return to policies that cut taxes for billionaires, cut regulations for special interests and “cut loose” middleclass families to fend for themselves. But Republicans see Tuesday’s vote shaping up as a stern public rejection of two more years of Democratic control on Capitol

MT. PLEASANT, Mich — After losing three games in the final seconds, BG finally pulled one out Saturday. Jordan Hopgood scored from a yard out with 21 seconds remaining, giving BG a 17-14 victory over Central Michigan. Starting from their own 41-yard line thanks to a fumble recovery by the defense, quarterback Matt Schilz directed a 7-play, 59-yard drive with 2:36 remaining. With under a minute remaining, Schilz found Kamar Jorden for a 32yard gain which set up Hopgood’s touchdown from a yard out. “We were just taking it play-byplay,” Schilz said. “They blitzed us, and I hit Kamar [Jorden] up the middle for a pretty big gash.” The win improved BG to 2-7 (14 MAC) and prevented them from tying the 1953 1-8 team for the worst start in program history. It also allowed the Falcons to celebrate by singing “Ay-Ziggy-Zoomba” for the first time since beating Marshall in the third week of the season.

“It was long overdue,” BG coach Dave Clawson said. “Some of the vocal chords were cold, but it was a great locker room. It was great to have that [winning] feeling again.” While it was the offense that led the game-winning drive, the BG defense put together one of its best performances of the season, limiting the Chippewas to 231 allpurpose yards. Leading the way, sophomore defensive lineman Chris Jones had five tackles for a loss and Champ Fells recovered the fumble that set up the game-winning drive. “Game after game we had gone down, down. Now I think things are looking up for us,” Jones said. The Falcons took a 7-0 lead on 10-yard touchdown run by Calvin Wiley at 11:41 of the first quarter. Out of wildcat formation Wiley took the direct snap, faked the hand-off to Willie Geter and ran untouched along the right edge. It was Wiley’s second career touchdown and his first on the ground. BG pushed its lead to 10-0 in

“It’s up to you to remember that this election is a choice between the policies that got us into this mess and the policies that are leading us out of this mess.” Barack Obama | President Hill. “What the American people are looking at and they’re saying is, ‘The Obama policies aren’t working. We need new policies, we need an economic-growth agenda,’” said Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, chairman of the Republican Governors Association. “If Republicans win, that’s what it will be, a repudiation of Obama’s policies.” Obama carried Ohio easily in 2008, and Democrats once had high hopes of re-electing Gov. Ted Strickland this year and taking the Senate seat being vacated by Republican George Voinovich. But with the recession barely losing its grip in the state, and the president’s approval ratings sagging, Democrats have all but given up on the Senate race and are desperate to save Strickland and several imperiled House members. Obama campaigned Saturday in Philadelphia, Connecticut and Chicago. All are generally friendly locations for Democrats, and the White House strategy is to fire up core voters who may feel despondent in this GOP-trending year. In Portland, Maine, former President Bill Clinton campaigned again Sunday for Democrat Libby Mitchell as she and four other candidates for governor ramped up their get-out-the-vote efforts. It was Clinton’s second stop in Maine in five weeks to help Mitchell, who’s sagging in polls to third in the five-way race, behind Republican front-runner Paul LePage and independent Eliot

Cutler. Alaska is perhaps the most unsettled state politically this weekend, and Democrats say it’s conceivable they could score an upset Senate win there. With GOP nominee Joe Miller stumbling badly, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski making a rare write-in effort after losing the primary to Miller, little-noticed Democrat Scott McAdams might find a way to sneak through to victory. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has poured more than $160,000 into the once-ignored race. “We believe that Scott McAdams actually has a real chance of winning this race,” committee chairman Robert Menendez, D-N.J., said Sunday. In Ohio, a Strickland loss to Republican John Kasich would have many ramifications beyond the state. Ohio will lose two House seats because of the 2010 census, and its governor will help oversee a redistricting process that may be fiercely partisan. Governors also can direct substantial political resources to the presidential contender of their choice. Should Obama lose Ohio in 2012, it would make it all the more important for him to win other highly contested states such as Pennsylvania and Florida. Strickland underlined the symbolic importance of Ohio, telling the Cleveland audience that the state is “a microcosm of America.”

PLEASANTVILLE: BG football wins nail biter in Michigan.

Residents feel ordinances allow more ‘special’ rights than equal rights By Christine Talbert Reporter

This week, residents of the city will be voting on the discrimination ordinances 7905 and 7906. Those leading the opposition to the ordinances believe the laws do not give gays and lesbians equal rights, but “special rights.” Last year once the laws won approval from the city council, the opposition passed petitions to put the issues on the ballot. “We really thought it wasn’t good for town,” said Crystal Thompson, spokesperson for the group called “BG Citizens Voting No to ‘Special Rights’ Discrimination.” Thompson said members of the organization do not believe people of different sexual orientations encounter discrimination in Bowling Green. “We have not seen discrimination in Bowling Green,” she said. “We aren’t against homosexuals, we just feel there should be equal rights, not special rights.” Thompson said that the ordi-

nances are unnecessary and would give gays and lesbians advantages over straight people when it comes to applying for jobs since employers may face backlash if they decide against hiring someone of that sexual orientation. “I worry that the laws will force business owners to cater to homosexuals,” she said. “If there is a lawsuit filed, business owners would somehow have to prove that they weren’t discriminating.” Ordinance 7905 applies to the rental housing and real estate markets within the city limits of Bowling Green. Through ordinance 7905, the terms “discriminate” or “discrimination” are redefined as follows: “Any difference in treatment based on race, color, religion, national origin, gender, gender expression, gender identity, sex, pregnancy, age, sexual orientation, creed, ancestry, disability, military status, veteran status, marital status, family sta-

Ordinance 7906 applies to businesses, educational institutions and public facilities within the city limits. These local businesses, schools and public facilities will be subject to the same anti-discrimination categories as above. BG Citizens Voting NO to “Special Rights” Discrimination was created by a group of concerned citizens that live and/or work within Bowling Green. Many of the group members own businesses within the city. “Our members welcome change within the city, as long as the change is productive, fair and promotes healthy family growth,” the website states. “We care that by granting special rights to one small group you risk violating the rights of a more vulnerable group within our community.” Local resident Norm Almanson said he would encourage Bowling Green voters to vote no on the ordinances because they are unnecessary and potentially harmful to businesses. “There are already laws that deal with various

Council passed the ordinances in August 2009, but the laws were quickly stalled when an opposition group submitted referendum petitions to put the issues up for a city-wide vote. Protesters have warned of the ordinances creating frivolous lawsuits and wasting time and money, Zanfardino said the ordinances call for mediation prior to any court action, meaning unfounded claims would not proceed needlessly. Penalties are only enforced if a business fails to address the problem, he said. “At least 16 other cities in Ohio have similar anti-discrimination ordinances in place, and none have experienced a rash of lawsuits,” he said.

Faculty well-being to benefit students Last week the votes were counted on whether the BGSU Faculty Association (BGSU-FA), the local chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), should represent BGSU faculty as a collective bargaining agent. Fifty-seven percent of our faculty colleagues voted in favor of binding negotiations between the BGSU-FA and the BGSU administration compensation, benefits, and working conditions. You are probably wondering what this means for students. If faculty press for increased salaries when state subsidies for higher education are falling, won’t that mean tuition increases? Aren’t student and faculty interests opposed in this case? The FA believes that of all of the “stakeholders” at the university, the students and the faculty have the most interests in common. This is an institution of teaching and learning. That is what the students and faculty do. Other activities, like administration, student services, dining services, maintenance, and security, as valuable and important as they are in themselves, provide support for the main function of the university: Learning. That is why the Faculty Association asserts that in most ways, what is good for the faculty is good for the students. We know about several faculty who have left the

“In most ways, what is good for the faculty is good for the students.” university because they could not afford to stay, because of salary or benefits, or because the environment elsewhere seemed better. Salaries of BGSU faculty have ranked at or near the bottom of state universities in Ohio for many years. When we hire a president at a high salary, the justification is that you have to pay to get good people. This applies to faculty hires as well. And so students stand to benefit from an improvement in the material well-being of faculty. If you compare the recent faculty annual salary increase (2.5% or less) with the recent tuition hikes (3.5% twice within a year), you see that faculty salary increases and tuition increases are not necessarily correlated. The tuition hikes were needed because of losses in state funding, and they preceded and were not driven by faculty salary increases. (Faculty did not receive an increase for 2009-10). When the FA can negotiate salaries with complete budget information, we will take the situation of students fully into consideration. But the benefits are not only material. I quote the reaction of one of my colleagues to the positive faculty

It felt like I truly belong to this campus; I have a ton of energy, ideas and expertise and want to share it for the better cause. I felt I belong here. I can contribute better to my students and the community simply because now I feel I have a voice.” While not all faculty believe that the Faculty Association improves community, many colleagues, apparently a majority, do think and feel that this is so.

A few things for everyone to consider …students continue to text and take phone calls in class? Unless they’re physicians, nurses or EMT workers, why not turn them off and listen to what’s being said? Someone is paying for them to be in class. Additionally, it’s discourteous. Someone should spread the word that this behavior is completely unacceptable in the work world. …no one bothers to thank the people at ITS in Hayes Hall for the wonderful work they do in grading Scantron sheets and giving advice on IT problems? Talk about good service — they’ve got it! …there is so much emphasis on the prevention of bullying these days? Have we forgotten “sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me”? Or, more to the point, where are the parents and the monitoring needed to prevent child bullies from becoming adolescent and young adult bullies, often with tragic consequences. …incandescent light bulbs are on the way out, by order of the Federal Government? They’re cheaper to buy and easier to dispose of. Ooops, sorry; they’re not “green,” whatever that means nowadays. Disposing of the new compact fluorescent bulbs is quite an undertaking, due to the small amount of mercury in the bulb. So we’re trading a less efficient light bulb for one that presents a risk of mercury poison-

PHIL SCHURRER FACULTY COLUMNIST

Why is it that… …a substantial number of voters in Bowling Green are students, and yet they’re transients from a voting standpoint? Not very many will be around in five years to feel the consequences — both good and bad — of their vote in local elections. Maybe students should be required to vote in the district where they have a permanent residence. …few recognize the good work done by Disabled Student Services? I deliver exams to their office for their clients who are my students. The folks at DSS are knowledgeable and on top of things. Hats Off! …everyone has been jumping on the back of BP since the oil spill about killing about 1,300 birds? Yet no one pays any attention to thousands of birds, including eagles, killed each year by wind turbines, especially at Altamont Pass, California? Additionally, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimates that 4 to 5 million birds are killed annually in collisions with communication towers. I guess the killing of fowl is acceptable if it’s the collateral damage done in the name of a “higher good.” That thinking seems rather foul to me, though.

ing. The last incandescent bulb factory, located in Winchester, Virginia, is being closed down, with a loss of several hundred jobs, according to the Washington Post. So, we’ll eventually be consuming less power but will suffer through more unemployment. A better suggestion: Let consumers decide what kind of light bulb to buy. It’s their money, after all. This is yet another instance where Main Street is smarter than the “hired help” in Washington by several orders of magnitude. The Nanny State — begone! …the forces who champion political reform have lately attracted so many nutjobs? Some of these people couldn’t find their brains with two hands and a flashlight, or else have a chronic case of foot-in-mouth disease. It looks as though both parties have their share of wing nuts. Guess that’s why they call it the “lunatic fringe.” …the BGSU Counseling Center is one of our campus’ hidden gems? From time to time, I refer students to them, because they have problems beyond my area of expertise. I’ll occasionally ask them how they’re doing, and the ones who have used the Counseling Center’s facilities and expertise have unanimously said it was well worth it. Keep it up! What do you think?

batteries prior to driving two hours away. And second, we were having way too much fun for our journalistic experience to be called “work.” The feeling was surreal. I’ve always been a strong advocate for fulfillment in a career that makes you happy, rather than a career that makes you rich. Following my coverage of our University’s pre-union phase, I’ve never felt more confident that I’ve made the right college and career selection. I’m not going to say being the faculty reporter has been all fun and games. It hasn’t. I’ve dealt with pressure from both sides of the issue. I’ve dealt with criticism and feedback. When I mess up (and I will admit I have), someone is quick to tell me. But hey, that’s

journalism. Instead of dwelling on the down sides, I treat each unionrelated encounter as a learning experience — and I’ve learned a lot. While the emergence of a faculty union means hope and excitement for some and resentment and disappointment for other, for me it means neither. It is just an additional chance to better myself as an aspiring reporter. As a journalism major, I’ve been trained to remain objective. I’ve done research and evaluated both sides, which both have their pros and cons. I’ve gotten to the point where I could recite the unionization issues in my sleep. A faculty union means University faculty members can negotiate salaries, workload and benefits as a collec-

tive unit. There’s no gray area — a faculty member is either a union member or an administration member — and for the next few years, faculty members are going to devote some time to organizing their union and beginning negotiations with said administration. In its simplest form, that’s what unionization, or “collective bargaining,” is. You can delve further and formulate your own opinion on whether those are good or bad things. I’m not here to debate or take sides; I’m here to inform. As the Faculty Association transition from an advocacy group to a full-fledged union, it’s likely I’ll have plenty left to tell as I cover this news-rich best in the spring semester. Although the union has passed, the coverage is hardly over.

Being the faculty beat reporter may not be the most glamorous job, but it’s my job, and one that I’ve become passionate about since I began my research late this summer. I’ll continue to learn throughout this experience and undoubtedly hone my skills that will help me throughout the rest of my journalistic career. Most importantly, I’ll continue to affirm my perfect career choice every day. For those who question who could possibly find enjoyment in telling the story of something that raises so much debate and fuels so much passion: Only me, the aspiring journalist.

Falcons split pair of matches, drop final contest in Anderson By Justin Onslow Reporter

AARON DEAN | THE BG NEWS

OVER THE NET: Senior Noelle Spitler looks to tally a score against Akron Saturday.

Rugby captures 30th MAC title with win over Miami By CJ Watson Reporter

Friday night’s excitement was overshadowed by a tough loss Saturday as the Falcon volleyball team split its final two matches in Anderson Arena. BG toppled Buffalo in four sets Friday night but allowed a five-set showdown with Akron to slip away Saturday afternoon. The loss against Akron was an emotional one for coach Denise Van De Walle, who has spent her 28 years with BG in Anderson Arena. “It hurts,” Van De Walle said. “It hurts a lot. It’s a tough one because it was the last match here, and that means a lot to me.” Although the Falcons battled back from a 29-27 loss in the first set Saturday to take the second set, the team had difficulty passing in the third set and entered the fourth down 2-1 in the match. “We did not play well at all in the third, but then found a lot of momentum and energy with good

They were spectacular.” Denise Van De Walle | Coach serving in the fourth set,” Van De Walle said. Freshman Paige Penrod had five service aces in the match, including four in the fourth set. Three of those four aces came in succession to give the Falcons a 19-8 lead late in the set. With the weekend split, BG enters its final stretch of the regular season with a record of 8-19, including a 2-10 mark in the Mid-American Conference.

Friday: BG vs. Buffalo The Falcons came out swinging Friday night, taking the first two sets from Buffalo in dominating fashion, 25-19 and 25-9. Its second-set win

was the team’s largest margin of victory in a set this season. Led by Penrod and her careerhigh 25-kill performance, BG closed out Buffalo in four sets on .278 hitting as a team. The Falcons held the Bulls to just .194 hitting. “We played very well offensively,” Van De Walle said. “You have to compliment [Penrod] and [Tonyan]. They were just phenomenal.” Tonyan added 16 kills on .355 hitting, as she and Penrod accounted for 41 of the team’s 58 kills. Senior Noelle Spitler added six

Goalie stopped 44 of 48 shots Saturday

Things weren’t much better for BG Saturday, as they played poorly from start to finish. The Falcons were outshot 48-13 in the game, including a 25-2 shot deficit in the first period. Despite giving up four goals, Hammond still had a pretty good night, stopping 44 of 48 shots faced. “If it wasn’t for Andrew Hammond, it would’ve been 10-0 [after the first period],” Bergeron said. “Completely unacceptable effort and things are going to have to change for us to have any success at all.” The Nanooks had a 3-0 lead just 15 minutes into the game, led by reigning CCHA rookie

of the year Andy Taranto, who had two goals on the night. Cam Wojtala scored his first collegiate goal five minutes into the second period to make it 3-1, but the Falcons were unable to capitalize on other opportunities to make the score closer. “We had a power play there at 3-1 that really could have gotten us some momentum, but we weren’t ready to compete at a high level tonight, just like we weren’t last night,” Bergeron said. “Alaska was and they sure proved it. “The scoreboard may not have shown it but the shots surely did.” The Falcons return to home ice this weekend to play No. 11 Notre Dame.

Akron recorded seven kills and no attack errors. “We were completely flat in the fifth. They came out aggressive to win it, and we just came out,” Van De Walle said. “Instead of playing to win, I think we played not to lose the last match in Anderson Arena.” Four Falcons recorded double-digit kills, led by Tonyan, who posted 17 kills on .250 hitting. Butterfield posted a careerhigh 13 kills and Spitler and Penrod added 11 kills each. For Van De Walle, the match was a sad farewell to the building she has called home for nearly three decades. “I have 28 years of good memories here,” she said. “I grew up as a coach in this gym, and I’ll miss it.” The Falcons will travel to Oxford on Thursday to take on Miami (OH) and begin its final stretch before the MAC Tournament. That match is scheduled for 7 p.m.

kills and freshman Lindsey Butterfield provided five more for the Falcons. Sophomore Kari Galen and freshman Laura Avila accounted for the other six kills. Avila also tallied 48 assists and 12 digs for the Falcons. Freshman Ashley Dunn led the team with 14 digs and added three assists. Van De Walle was thrilled with how Penrod and Tonyan played, and expects them to continue to make a big impact in the future. “I think you’ll see even bigger things out of Paige as she gains more and more confidence,” she said. “She and Danielle are carrying a lot of weight for this team right now, and they know that. They were spectacular.”

BG played inconsistently and struggled with its passing throughout the match. The Falcons also committed 31 attack errors and hit .179 as a team. Although BG posted more kills and service aces than Akron, the errors were too much to overcome. “[It was] the biggest night serving, but one of our weakest passing,” Van De Walle said. “Some of the easy plays, we made difficult. You can’t do that against a team who is trying to stay in the race to win the East Division.” BG played well in the second and fourth sets, but committed six attack errors in the fifth.

COLUMN From Page 6 If this was the BG defense’s Halloween costume, it was fantastic. It was even more fantastic considering the offense has been the marquee attraction at Doyt Perry. A program that has developed itself as an offensive juggernaut throughout history, defense has seemingly taken a backseat to its offensive counterpart. To put it into perspective, the past three head coaches — Urban Meyer, Gregg Brandon and now Clawson — have been “offensive minds” and Saturday’s 17-14 win was the first time since 2001 the Falcons have won a game in which they scored under 20 points.

While that isn’t a positive reflection on the past 10 years of Falcon defense, the win could usher in a new era (yes, this might be a stretch, but I’m feeling optimistic today) for the Falcon defense. All year youth has been the issue, players getting acclimated to starting or college football in general is one of the big reasons this team is 2-7. However, this team is 2-7 and youth can be a positive move forward. Dwayne Woods, Aunre’ Davis, Aaron Foster and Jones — who should be named the MAC defensive player of the week for his efforts — are all sophomores or younger who could build a solid core for the future. Woods, who’s been a con-

Schilz

NOTES From Page 6 Moore combined for 2.5 sacks. “We kept playing harder as the game went on,” Jones said. “We picked it up this game and I think it’s really looking up for us.” The Falcons had seven sacks on the season prior to Saturday’s game and of the 16 players to record tackles against CMU, nine of them had at least one tackle for a loss.

Long time coming BG’s 17-14 win over the Chippewas was its first win when scoring less than 20 points since a 17-0 win at Ohio in 2001. “I’m not ready to pronounce us a good team but we finally got a low scoring win which is certainly progress for our defense,” Clawson said.

While he started against Marshall when the Falcons picked up their first win of the season, quarterback Matt Schilz had to leave the game with a shoulder injury and Aaron Pankratz came in relief to finish the game. Saturday, Schilz played the entire game and truly got to experience what it was like to win a game as a starting quarterback. “It’s definitely rewarding to actually be in the whole game and get a win,” Schilz said. “We’ve been trying to get this all year. We keep fighting each week.”

stant contributor all season, already looks like an outside candidate to earn MAC Defensive player sometime over the next two seasons. Jones, if his breakout game is any indication, could establish himself as a top-level defensive lineman in the conference. Yes, this is a reach and based on speculation and BG still has two strong offensive powers in Toledo and Miami on its schedule, the Falcon defense could be on its way to challenging the offense as the main attraction. Maybe it was a Halloween costume and a one-time deal; maybe it was a change of culture. No matter which it is, for at least one week the defense got the job done right.
