Students protest lack of diversity among faculty By Mathew Davoli Reporter

Students wore black tape with “TAKE ACTION” on it over their lips outside the Union Friday. They were among the more than 200 students protesting a lack of diversity at the University. “We hope to raise awareness for the situation that’s going on with the faculty and staff here on campus, we feel like there can be a lot more diversity,” said senior Derris Cameron, vice president of the Black Student Union. “In the past, through three years, we looked at the statistics and noticed that there is a steep decline in the multicultural staff, and not just for African-Americans, but for Latinos and other ethnic groups,” he said. “We’re trying to stop this pattern of declining faculty and staff of color,” said senior Dean Bryson, former president and current member of the BSU. Many protesters expressed fears of future cuts to multicultural staff. “There’s word that there’s possibly 15 faculty and staff member contracts that are up for debate,

“... We noticed ... There is a steep decline in the multicultural staff.” Derris Cameron | BSU

and if those 15 contracts were cut, that would cut down 25 percent of the minority professors that work here,” said junior Tiffany R. Smith, coordinator of the protest and a BSU member. “We understand that there’s budget cuts, we understand our university, but we want to make sure that we’re not being slid under the bus,” Bryson said. Protesters believed they had a personal stake in the matter. “We would like more staff and more faculty on campus that share our cultural experience,” Cameron said. “I mean staff that we can relate to and have as mentors and contribute to our development as

Nearly 3,800 people said via Facebook that they would celebrate Falcon Fest, but poor weather and heavy law enforcement presence may have prevented it from becoming a large event. “By all accounts, it seems like this was pretty much a normal weekend,” said Bowling Green Police Sgt. Mark McDonough. “The wind, rain and cold were probably a factor.” Officers from at least four other law enforcement divisions coordinated with the Police Division, including University Police, the Wood County Sheriff’s Office and the Ohio State Highway Patrol, McDonough said. Liquor control agents and railroad police were in town as well, he said. Students typically get in more trouble as the weather gets nicer and exam week draws closer, and

Falcon Fest had the potential to raise those numbers further, said Michael Skulina, an attorney for Student Legal Services. “I didn’t know what to expect in court (Friday) morning, but I saw no evidence of any more arrests or citations than usual,” Skulina said. McDonough said there were some assaults as well as drunk driving and underage drinking citations issued throughout the weekend, but “nothing remarkably higher than normal.” Junior Nick Juskewycz said officers asked for proof of his age Thursday night when he was carrying a case of beer into Founders, but they didn’t mention what agency they worked for. “They were parked in the drive in front of the dorm,” he said. “They asked a bunch of questions because my license is from out-of-

It’s kind of like insurance, he said. Everyone pays a little, the resources are pooled and then whoever needs them is covered. Unless students choose to opt out of the SLS program (by unchecking a box on their Bursar bills), they are automatically enrolled each semester. Fleming said there are likely some students who pay the $7 fee without knowing it, but an opt-out fee was the only way to make the program work. When looking at other schools, he said, the University saw that if the fee was opt-in, too few students would participate and rather than $7, the cost would have to be closer to $100 per student. “Basically, the studies suggested you couldn’t do an opt-in and make it cheap enough,” he said.

University reaches out to veteran students by developing community

At The University, there are over 350 students who share a common experience. At one time, they voluntarily raised their right hands, swore an oath to the flag and the United States, promised to obey all lawful orders, and put on a uniform. They are veterans. There is no common profile of a typical University veteran. Twenty-five percent of them are women. In the past here at the University, they became known only through self-identification. You can’t identify University veterans by their appearance or by the classes they take. They are generally a little older than their peers, though not by much. Some are quiet and thoughtful, almost reflective. Some will take leadership positions; others prefer to quietly remain in a supporting role. In the military, some worked in clerical positions, some worked in maintenance of weapon systems, some drove vehicles and some cooked food. Some experienced a routine, others experienced combat and saw things no human should have to see. When they returned from duty, some were relatively unscathed and had pleasant memories. They continued to maintain contact with friends they found in the service. Some, however, remain wounded in body, mind or spirit by the searing sights and sounds of war. Perhaps a good description of a veteran is found in the following, adapted from the U.S. Marine Corps Force Recon Association website: A veteran is: - The cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia sweating two gallons a day making sure the armored personnel carriers didn’t run out of fuel. - The barroom loudmouth,

Nontraditional and Transfer Students Services, under the leadership of Barbara Henry, is hard at work implementing these recommendations and developing a comprehensive program for all veterans on campus. Today, 19 of those task force recommendations are either completed or in progress. For example, University veterans, as well as faculty and staff who are veterans, are considered a “veteran community.” Establishment of a Blackboard Community page and a Facebook page provides communication tools to reach out to this group. This past fall, the Office of Nontraditional and Transfer Students Services organized a veteran’s tent prior to the start of a home football game. The level of attendance and the degree of enthusiasm shown has prompted the decision to make it an annual event. A student veterans club has been recognized by the University and will conduct elections next fall. Additionally, social events are being proposed and planned that will help the University veterans feel a greater sense of community. The Office of Nontraditional and Transfer Students Services is coordinating these efforts together with outreach programs to Health Services, Housing Assistance, the Counseling Center and Disabled Student Services. The goal is to establish a “virtual office,” a one-stop shop, where the needs of University veterans can be met. Most veterans are content with the cushion of anonymity. Yet, our campus, state and nation are better off because some chose to do something special, and who have made our lives and our world a little safer. The University is taking steps to recognize them.

New GOP agenda takes resources away from middle class Americans By Matthew Thacker Columnist

Since coming to power in January on the heels of landslide winning elections last November, newly elected Republican congressmen, senators and governors have all but declared economic war on the middle class. Republican initiated class warfare is nothing new, as was evidenced by the economic state of the middle class after eight years under President Bush’s leadership. However, the Grand Old Party (GOP) has really stepped up its attempt to destroy the livelihood of working class Americans in the last four months. The debate in Washington D.C. over the national budget is just the latest battle in the Republicans’ war on middle class Americans. On April 5th, House Republica n Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan announced the GOP long-term proposal to cut federal spending. Representative Ryan’s budget plan would cut between $4-5.8 trillion of spending from the federal budget over the next 10 years. Ryan proposes this be accomplished by significantly cutting (or eliminating altogether) federal funding for social programs that benefit the lowest-income Americans. Programs on the chopping block would include: Planned Parenthood, Pell Grants and Head-Start programs. Ryan’s plan would also essentially end the Medicare and Medicaid programs as we know them through privatization, basically making them voucher programs. Medicare and Medicaid are the primary insurance programs for the poorest Americans, including seniors, children and the disabled. The battle over government funding of Planned Parenthood is cited by both parties as a main point of contention in the battle of the national budget, which nearly prompted a shutdown of the federal government last Friday. Republicans claim their main objection to the federal government’s partial funding of Planned Parenthood is the fact the organization performs abortions at specified clinics. There are rules already

in place, however, that prohibit any and all federal government funding from being used to pay for abortions. Defunding Planned Parenthood would mean thousands of mostly lowincome women would be denied essential medical services such as mammograms and cervical cancer screenings. Ryan’s budget proposal is just another attempt by the Tea Party-led GOP to balance the budget on the backs of working class Americans. Anti-Union bills—which have either been passed, or are being considered in six states— have become all the rage among newly elected Republican Governors. According to Northern Ohio’s The Morning Journal, Ohio’s union-busting Senate Bill 5 (SB5), which was pushed through the state’s General Assembly by the Republican-controlled state Senate and House of Representatives, could affect as many as 350,000 people, including all of Ohio’s teachers, prison guards, firefighters and policemen. Most in the GOP would say that bills like SB5 are necessary to balance the state’s budget (presumably by lowering the wages of state employees), but it seems to me that the real reason for this type of antiworking class legislation is the eradication of the middle class by eliminating the political party that is supposed to go to bat for them. Traditionally it has primarily been the Democratic Party that protects social programs for the poor. Do the Democrats have a perfect record on social issues? Of course not, no political party does, but the Democratic Party is responsible for legislation that enacted social programs such as Social Security, Medicare, and expansion of the earned income tax credit for working-class families. Therefore, stripping state employee’s unions of collective bargaining rights is a purely political move on the part of the GOP leadership. It is a well-known fact that unions—of all kinds—are among the biggest financial contributors to the election of Democratic candidates. By removing unions, the Republicans remove (to a large degree)

“Republican initiated class warfare is nothing new ...” the Democratic Party’s ability to effectively compete in campaigns at all levels of government. The political math is not hard to figure out. Breaking the unions is the same as breaking the Democratic Party, which breaks the backs of the middle class. If the Republican Party’s primary concern was balancing the budgets (Federal, as well as State) like they contend, they would not be opposed to raising the nation’s revenue by repealing the Bush-era tax cuts, which primarily benefit the two percent of Americans in the highest-income bracket. It would also seem logical to close corporate tax loopholes which allow many corporations with multi-billion dollar profits every year to pay little or no federal income taxes. This month it was made public by the New York Times that General Electric profited $14.2 billion last fiscal year,$5.1 billion of which was earned from sales in the United States, and yet paid not a single dime of federal income taxes. In fact, G.E. earned a tax credit from the U.S. Government in the sum of $3.2 billion. That’s right, our government gave a corporation that earned a profit of over $14 billion another $3 billion. That is government spending that seems exponentially more wasteful than Pell Grants to help low-income people seek higher education. So, my fellow students, I sincerely hope that you are all fortunate enough to make millions of dollars a year and that none of you are forced to rely on social programs to make ends meet. If that is the case, then you have no reason to worry about how the Federal Government balances the budget—chances are it’s not going to affect you. But for the rest of us, class warfare is being waged and our social standing has put us squarely in the crosshairs of the new GOP agenda.

WORLD BRIEFS Ohio man who killed 3 says he has ‘evil thoughts’

Fierce fighting in key city in west Libya kills 17

Gunmen free kidnap victim in Philippines

17 killed, scores injured in Chinese storms

BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (AP) — A man sentenced to life in prison without parole for murdering his girlfriend’s daughter and an elderly couple said in his videotaped confession that he constantly has “evil thoughts” and thinks about killing. Samuel K. Littleton II, of Western Ohio, pled guilty to three counts each of aggravated murder and gross abuse of a corpse in a deal with prosecutors to avoid the death penalty for the three February slayings. He shed some light on his thinking during hours of taped interrogations after he was arrested in West Virginia, The Columbus Dispatch newspaper reported Sunday.

AJDABIYA, Libya — Holding out under a rain of shelling and sniper fire, Libyan rebels fought Moammar Gadhafi’s forces Sunday in close-quarters battles in the city center of Misrata, the last major rebel foothold in western Libya. Seventeen people were killed, an NGO worker and an opposition activist said. Government troops have been laying siege to the city on Libya’s Mediterranean coast for weeks, prompting repeated international warnings of a dire humanitarian situation as well as calls for NATO forces to intensify airstrikes on Gadhafi’s forces there. — Ben Hubbard (AP)

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Kidnappers have freed a man after more than two months of captivity in the southern Philippines. Kidnappings for ransom have flourished in the volatile region for years. Regional police official Felicisimo Khu said Joel Indino Jr. was freed by his captors late Saturday in Payao town in Zamboanga Sibugay province and later underwent a medical checkup in a police camp. Khu said Sunday ransom was reportedly paid but the victim’s family has refused to comment. Several people have been kidnapped so far this year in the south in abductions blamed mostly on al-Qaida-linked Abu Sayyaf militants or kidnap gangs.

BEIJING (AP) — Chinese authorities said at least 17 people have been killed and scores injured after violent thunderstorms lashed parts of the country’s southern industrial heartland of Guangdong province. Emergency service officials said hail, rain and gale-force winds struck the province’s capital, Guangzhou, along with the nearby cities of Foshan, Dongguan and Zhaoqing. Victims were struck by falling objects and collapsing walls and work sheds, with the official Xinhua News Agency saying 118 people were reported injured. The region is home to much of China’s crucial export manufacturing sector, although there was no immediate indication of serious damage to assembly lines.

legal service for every student, Fleming said. So, SLS tries to meet most needs for most students. For example, SLS won’t help students dealing with felony charges. Felonies take up a lot of time and resources, Fleming said, and only a handful of students are charged with them each year. So, it doesn’t make sense for SLS to offer that as a service, he said. SLS also won’t represent students in lawsuits against the University or against other students because of a conflict of interest, Fleming said. Divorces and civilrights-violation suits against the police are also off limits. Fleming said about 2,000 students visit the SLS office every year for advice or a consultation. From t hat, he said, SLS opens about 1,000 cases. Fifty percent of those cases are misdemeanor criminal offenses, Fleming said, usually involving alcohol. Another 35 percent of the SLS workload involves landlord disputes. After that, traffic violations and other miscellaneous cases — such as living wills, name changes or dissolutions of marriage — make up the final 15 percent.

Falcon baseball takes two of three from arch rival Toledo By Michele Wysocki Reporter

BYRON MACK | THE BG NEWS

FIRE BALLER: Matt Malewitz fires a pitch in a game against Oakland earlier this month.

BG started off its series with arch rival Toledo in the right direction Friday when sophomore Cody Apthorpe threw a complete game and took the 6-2 win over the Rockets. Even with winds up to 40 mph, Apthorpe shut down Toledo’s offense by allowing two runs over nine innings, with 97 pitches to snap the Rockets’ 11-game win streak. Coach Danny Schmitz was pleased with Apthorpe’s outing and said he had total command of the ball and stayed ahead of batters. “Cody Apthorpe backed up his outing from last weekend and pitched well on an even weekend,” Schmitz said. “He did well on weekends one and three, we need him to pitch well for us on weekend number four, and he definitely did.” Apthorpe took advantage of the wind and got all three of his pitches over the plate with ease, but credited his team with the win. “When you have guys making plays and scoring runs, when you

need to score runs, it makes things 100 times easier,” Apthorpe said. “They had great energy.” BG’s bats didn’t wait to take advantage of the wind as tri-captain Jon Berti hit a two-out single through the right side, followed by a two-bag hit from designated hitter Matt Pitzulo. Berti scored from first, giving the Falcons their first run and broke Toledo pitcher Mike Hamman’s 17.2 scoreless inning streak. The Falcons put up runs in both the second and the sixth innings, taking a 4-1 lead over Toledo. In the eighth inning, BG added two insurance runs to extend its lead. Junior Patrick Martin was dealt a leadoff walk and he picked up a stolen base. Tri-captain Frank Berry caught the wind the right way and pounded the ball, putting runners in the corners. Freshman Andrew Kubuski singled to left, scoring Martin and advancing Berry. Berti came up with another

Men’s golf takes second at Earl Yestingsmeier Invite By Brendan Packert Reporter

After a rough start at the Earl Yestingsmeier Invitational, the BG men’s golf team came back and shot two of its best rounds in the tournament to finish in second place of 15 teams. Weather still played a huge factor at the tournament. Coach Garry Winger said the weather was dismally cold with rain, but there were no delays unlike last week in Kentucky. “They could have stopped play at any time, but they didn’t,” Winger said. Led by the leadership of team captain Drew Preston, the team almost overcame a 26-stroke deficit, but finished just nine strokes behind tournament winner and host Ball State. Preston shot 6-over par (71, 72, 73 - 216) to finish tied for third at the par 70 Delaware Country Club. He was only two shots off from Ball State’s Earl Eric Steger, who shot 4over par (67, 72, 75 - 214), to lead his team to the win. “We came back with a strong second and third round after a bad first round,” Preston said. Wes Gates shot an impressive 8-over par (74, 71, 73 – 218) to finish in 7th place. Rounding out the best scores on the team, Parker Hewit shot a 10-over par (80, 71, 69 – 220) to finish tied for 10th place. Hewit was the only golfer to shoot a 69 (1-under par) in the third round. “I knew we were in for a long day, and I knew we could still shoot a solid round,” Hewit said. The Falcons were tied for 9th at the end of the first round Saturday with a score of 380. After two successful rounds of scores in the 360s (365, 368); however, the Falcons held on to another great finish at the Earl Yestingsmeier Invitational.

Junior finished tied for third with 6-over par The Falcons won the 2009 Earl Yestingsmeier Invitational. “Experience played a part for our team,” Preston said. “After the first round, we knew the scores we had to shoot at this course.” Preston said the team was used to the rough winds from playing and practicing in Bowling Green. “They stepped up this week,” Winger said. “Last week, some guys shot worse than they normally do, but the confidence they had this week put them in a good position.” Two other Falcons finished in the top 50, with Torey Brummett finishing tied for 38th place with a score of 20-over par (79, 75, 76 – 230) 226 and Charlie Olson tied for 47th place with a score of 22-over par (76, 76, 80 - 232). The sixth Falcon to participate in the tournament was Bryan Mitchell, who shot a +31 over par (81 83 77 – 241) to finish tied for 76th place. Because of the tournament’s format, where a team can field six golfers but only count the lowest five scores, Mitchell’s score didn’t count for the Falcons’ team score. The Falcons have one more tournament next week at Purdue before the Mid-American Conference Championships. Winger knows how important confidence is in the game of golf and that his team has some going into next week’s tournament.

Fifteen different scorers earned 72 points for the Falcons in 12 events, managing one event victory as well as three second-place and two third-place finishes. Jessie Rowland and Jeanette Pettigrew earned the most points for BG. Rowland scored 18 points in the javelin and hammer throws and Pettigrew scored 12 points in four separate running events.

Pitzulo stepped up to the plate and singled, putting another run on the board for the Falcons and runners in the corners. Senior Ryan Schlater was hit by a pitch, loading the bases.
