“In a world that can sometimes be lacking in empathy and deep thinking, I think ‘River Teeth’ makes space for the opportunity to inhabit another human being’s

experience in a meaningful way,” said Jill Christman, senior co-editor of the creative nonfiction journal “River Teeth.” This year, the biannual literary journal is celebrating its 21st anniversary, as well as its move to Ball State from Ashland

University. Since coming to campus, both the spring and fall 2019 issues were published from Ball State. The journal’s founding editors and editors-in-chief Joe Mackall and Dan Lehman now work closely with Ball State English professors Mark

Neely and Todd McKinney to publish “River Teeth.” Neely said “River Teeth” receives roughly 2,000 submissions each year, and the journal has an acceptance rate of about 2 percent for publishing.

UPD arrests man for theft, trespassing

Jan. 7: The Ball State University Police Department (UPD) arrested a man on charges of a previous theft and criminal trespassing after a repeated attempt to enter a building on campus. Dustin Smith, 37, had been verbally warned to stay off Ball State property in 2012 and was arrested the first time in 2015 for violating his 2012 trespass order and committing theft.

Men’s basketball stays poised, takes victory

Jan. 14: Through the entirety of their game against the Eagles Tuesday, the Cardinals lost the lead just once. Even early on when Eastern Michigan went up by one or went on a 21-8 run to open the second half, Ball State always jumped ahead. In a game of big runs and droughts, Ball State Men’s Basketball’s consistency on offense allowed it to cruise to a 69-52 win.

complain going to middle school feels like being in jail. Now, a former Muncie middle school building will actually become one. The Delaware County Justice and Rehabilitation Center will move from its current location in downtown Muncie to the former Wilson Middle School building in

November to expand its jail capacity. The former school, located at the corner of Tillotson Avenue and 26th Street in south Muncie, will not only become a jail but will also house the Justice Department offices and six courtrooms. The site is undergoing renovations that are estimated to cost the county around $45 million, said Sherry Riggin, Delaware County commissioner. This is the cheapest solution

for the county, according to the Delaware County website. Tony Skinner, Delaware County sheriff, said previously the new site was the most economically feasible one because expanding the current Justice Center would cost a minimum of $65 million. The current Justice Center was built in the early 1990s and is suffering from maintenance issues and overcrowding, Skinner said.

UPGRADED SHOPPING OPTIONS Muncie’s new ALDI aims to appeal to college students. Other features that came with the location change and remodeling process have helped improve the store’s appeal to college-age students over the last few years, such as Instacart, which Kline said ALDI rolled out over the last year. Instacart is an online, same-day grocery pickup and delivery service for stores like Target, CVS Pharmacy and Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, according to its website.

Kline said the move to the new location is part of a $5 billion expansion and replacement program across the entire ALDI chain that replaced some older stores, like the McGalliard location, while also remodeling around 1,300 other locations. The larger store, he said, allows for a 20 percent broader product range, including a 40 percent increase in fresh meat and produce. The new ALDI store employs 17

stockers, cashiers and managers, including five Ball State students like junior communications major Madelynn Goldenstern, who was first drawn to work at ALDI because of the scheduling it offered. Kline said though there are currently no plans to hire more new employees, there may be more opportunities in the future. Contact John Lynch with comments at jplynch@bsu.edu or on Twitter @WritesLynch.

Prices of basic grocery items at different stores in Muncie ALDI

ALDI’s new location at 210 W. McGalliard Rd. opened Nov. 21, 2019, after the closing of the previous location at 108 W. McGalliard Rd. ALDI Director of Operations Greg Kline said the move was part of a $5 billion expansion and renovation project across the entire ALDI chain. JOHN LYNCH, DN John Lynch Reporter Muncie’s ALDI has been at its new location at 210 W. McGalliard Rd. for over a month — a mile away from its former location on the same road. The new store, which opened Nov. 21, 2019, brought with it some new features that appeal to college-age students, said Greg Kline, ALDI’s director of operation in Muncie. “Our greatest increases in our customer-base groups of the last couple years are millennials,” Kline said. “The fresh product, again, is something that has really brought them in.” Those fresh products have been a main attraction for Robert Poppe, sophomore business administration major, who has been shopping at ALDI for a year.

Poppe said he buys 75 to 85 percent of his groceries at ALDI, purchasing generic-brand produce and fresh foods, while going to larger chains for namebrand products. “A great example is PopTarts,” Poppe said. “Some people don’t like off-brand PopTarts. I personally don’t care, so I’ll buy Pop-Tarts here. But say you want the name brand one — that’s the one thing I’ll pick up from Walmart.” Pricing is another factor for Poppe. He said ALDI’s pricing is often fair and accurate to what he expects a product should be worth. “I come to ALDI with the expectation that I’m going to buy some cheap stuff because, you know, we ballin’ on a college budget. Like, we want something cheap,” Poppe said.

Students in the interior design immersive learning class designed this cruising wall. Children can hold onto the wall for support to stand up and walk. EMILY SCHRIPSEMA, PHOTO PROVIDED

Designing for special needs Ball State students help develop and install equipment for a pediatric clinic.

Rohith Rao News Editor “Purples, greens and yellows.” These colors calm children and help them better understand and think through ideas. This is something Emily Schripsema, senior interior design major, learned during her immersive learning class focused on children with autism. As part of Ball State’s Health and Environmental Design Research Lab, the project was funded by a $20,000 Provost Immersive Grant. The class also partnered with Children’s TheraPlay, a nonprofit pediatric clinic in Carmel, Indiana, which serves children with special needs through physical and occupational therapy. The first phase of the project challenged students to design a plan for a new construction project at the clinic. Last semester, students

helped design and build customized furniture focused on the five senses and how kids with autism can benefit from those designs. Throughout the semester, Schripsema said, she worked on a cruising wall with knobs that assisted children learning to stand up and walk and a sensory wall, which featured LED lights that created a puzzle. “We can design anything we want, but we actually had to figure out how it was put together — joints, and screws, and lengths and widths,” she said. “It brought a whole new dimension and reality to our project.” The class, led by Shireen Kanakri, associate professor of interior design, began in fall 2018. This partnership with the clinic is important, she said, because there is a gap in interior designing to produce designs that benefit children with autism. “I decided to share it with our

Natalie Hopf, senior interior design major, helps build equipment for Children’s TheraPlay pediatric clinic. Shireen Kanakri, associate professor of interior design who led the project, said the partnership with the clinic was important due to a lack of designs that benefit children with autism. EMILY SCHRIPSEMA, PHOTO PROVIDED

students to get [a] variety of design solutions that might help the kids with autism,” Kanakri said in an email. Megan Draper, senior interior design major, also worked on building the living wall — a wall with plants and a self-contained irrigation system. A trough at the top of the wall helps children water the plants and learn how to take care of them. Apart from experiencing nature indoors, Draper said children can experience sensory inclusion by touching and watering the plants. “It’s really opened my eyes to just the impact that interior design can have on people and their living environment,” she said. All of the new equipment built by students was completely funded by Ball State, which Kathy Pelletier, executive director of the clinic, said was “invaluable” to the clinic because it operates on a lean budget. Another benefit from the partnership is students can customize the pieces for the clinic’s environment, specifically for the needs requested by therapists, Pelletier said. “That’s something that probably under ordinary circumstances would be cost prohibitive to us to just get a customized piece of furniture in our facility,” she said. With all the design plans and blueprints ready, Pelletier said the new construction project at the clinic is scheduled to begin in April. “It’s so great for us to be involved in something that’s really impacting students at Ball State,” she said. “It’s a great partnership which is mutually beneficial for us and the students at Ball State.” Kanakri said students benefited from the project by dealing with a real client, having a real site to work on and being able to test their designs

with real people. Draper, who will be working for a custom residential interior design company after graduation, said she didn’t have an appreciation for the different things that are included with interior design when she first joined the program. “I guess as I’ve gone through school, I’ve learned more of the importance of designing for specific needs in populations,” she said. “I wouldn’t have considered how big of a need it was to design for children with disabilities and just that little things like that can really have a big impact on their lives.” Schripsema, who wants to get into pediatric health care design, said the project gave her an opportunity to learn about how children with disabilities experience the world. “Having the chance to do something in that field, specifically involving children with disabilities and specialities — it was something I wouldn’t have gotten if I didn’t do the project,” she said.

So, the corrections officers working in the control room can see all the activity in all of the jail cells from one centralized location.” Another advantage to the facility is the space it provides for day-to-day operations. “If you just move the jail,

Brown leads Blackford past Madison-Grant In last season’s contest between Blackford and Madison-Grant, the Argylls won by two points in the final seconds. That defeat left a sour taste in the mouths of the Bruins, and they were ready for revenge. They got it Friday in a 93-74 victory behind 35 points from junior Luke Brown.

Cardinals eke out 7th win in a row

Ball State’s performances in second halves so far this season has helped it grow the number in the win column. The Cardinals were even better again in the second half against Eastern Michigan, and it was enough for them to come out with a 59-54 win to extend their win streak to seven games.

Despite what head coach Joel Walton described as “pretty mediocre” offense, the Cardinals were able to put away Belmont Abbey in three sets. They followed that with a sweep of Queens the next night, moving their record to 2-0. Ball State’s next match is Friday, Jan. 17 at Cal State Northridge.

“Being an editor means you have to say, ‘No,’ to a lot to people who have put a lot of work into something,” Neely said. “They’re wonderful, amazing writers, but unfortunately, we have to make really hard choices for publishing.” As editors, Christman, Neely and McKinney must consider their budget for the number of pages in each issue.

Working and talking with the writers about their essays is really insightful and helps us as editors bring light to their work.” Because of the quality of all submitted essays, the editors all said it is difficult to choose one favorite piece, but Christman said her favorite essays are the pieces from which she learns something new and feels a connection to the author’s personal journey. In addition to the “River Teeth” journal, Ball State is also the publishing grounds for a “River Teeth” submagazine, “Beautiful Things,” which accepts micro-essay submissions of 250 words or fewer to publish online and

WHERE DOES THE NAME, “RIVER TEETH” COME FROM?

English professor and senior co-editor of “River Teeth” Jill Christman holds the spring and fall 2019 issues of “River Teeth.” These issues include works from authors including Jeff Gundy, Anne McGrath and Chris Siteman. JOSHUA SMITH, DN deliver to email subscribers once a week. McKinney works with Christman and English department graduate student Valerie Weingart to publish “Beautiful Things” essays as well as update “River Teeth’s” website and social media. “To be given the opportunity to work with ‘River Teeth’ as a graduate student is like a dream come true,” Weingart said. “I’ve had to get comfortable with communicating with people who have a lot more experience than I do who

are important figures in the literary world. I was a little bit starstruck for a while, and I still am a little bit, but I’m getting comfortable with that, and I definitely don’t take these opportunities for granted.” Christman and Neely, who are both teaching creative nonfiction classes this semester, said they are excited to share “Beautiful Things” essays with their students. Neely also said there may be future options for students to better understand the editing process through the new “River

Teeth” Learning Lab. Currently, Neely is recruiting interns to attend classes and help students learn more about creative nonfiction writing. “Moving ‘River Teeth’ to Ball State gives us the opportunity to start building our program in literary publishing and give students the opportunity for hands-on learning,” Christman said. McKinney said he hopes reading memoirs and creative nonfiction motivates people to think about how they can relate to the author’s experiences.

“When students, or just readers in general, read ‘River Teeth’ essays, I think it gives them permission to examine their river teeth moments and figure out the emotional journey that they’re on and what it means to them,” McKinney said. Each of the faculty editors said they have high hopes for the future of “River Teeth” at Ball State, and one of their collective goals is to involve as many students as possible. “Hopefully, we’ll have 20 more years of ‘River Teeth,’”

David James Duncan wrote “River Teeth: An Introduction,” the journal’s first opening essay in 1999, where he compared the experiences people returned to in their minds to a living tree growing in a river. In his essay, Duncan described how the flowing river strips the tree apart and causes the knots in the tree’s wood — which represent our past experiences that still stand out to us — to look like “enormous fangs,” and he named this concept “river teeth.” Source: River Teeth Journal

Personal Transgressions

Breaking the system Catcalling is still sexual harassment.

Rhyan Radabaugh gets out of her car Jan. 14, 2020. “Always park under a streetlight,” Radabaugh said. JACOB MUSSELMAN, DN ILLUSTRATION Rhyan Radabaugh is a junior communications major and writes “Personal Transgressions” for The Daily News. Her views do not necessarily agree with Rhyan Radabaugh those of the newspaper. Columnist, On a Personal Thursday Transgressions

night, my friend and I decided to join in on the festivities Be Here Now, a bar in the Village, had to offer. A local band was headlining, and we were ready for a break from responsibilities for a night. The beginning of the night was fun, as we swayed along with the loud indie music and shouted jokes back and forth. I felt relaxed and happy — like I was living in a real-life college movie.

We decided that after the set, we would head back to my friend’s house and hang out before the night ended. As we strolled along, I noticed two men laughing with each other in the parking lot. I didn’t think much of them until we walked past. The two men instantly whipped their heads and whistled at us. I glanced back and caught them giving me a once-over with their eyes.

One of the men got brave and said loud enough for the whole parking lot to hear: “Woah baby, look at that ass!” I wasn’t embarrassed or shocked, but I did feel my stomach drop ever so slightly. My friend, being an oblivious guy, didn’t think too much of it, so we kept walking casually to his house. But it didn’t end there. The two older men began following us through the

parking lot. They continued asking what my name was. At that moment, my mind began to race with all the stories of women being kidnapped or assaulted in situations just like this. I began to panic and grabbed my friend’s hand while awkwardly jogging out of the parking lot all the way to our destination. I didn’t look back to see if they had stopped following us until I got in the house safely and

locked the door. Although it was a fun night, I knew I wouldn’t remember anything about it but that terrifying moment. The reality is women have to think about their safety in almost every aspect of their daily lives. Whether it’s parking in a well-lit area when going to shop at Target or texting all of your female friends to let them know you got home unscathed, we

make slight adjustments to our routine in order to avoid harassment or assault. What happened to me in the parking lot is a form of sexual harassment society refers to as catcalling. Catcalling can be many things, from what happened to me to someone shouting out their car window at someone walking down the sidewalk. A 2018 national study discovered 81 percent of women have experienced sexual harassment within their lifetime, and 43 percent of men have experienced it as well. Sexual harassment is so common that almost every woman I know has had an encounter with sexually suggestive slurs or, in severe situations, assault. Catcalling is a lot more than just a few derogatory words, though. It’s a way for harassers to test the waters — to see how far they can go before there are repercussions. It may start with a guy whistling in your direction. When you don’t respond, he may feel confident enough to shout out,“Hey beautiful.” When you ignore this advance, he may think he can get more risky — shouting what he loves about your body or your clothing. In my case, the two men harassing me got brave enough to start following me out of the parking lot. I was

27% fortunate enough to get out of the situation before it could escalate into anything physical. Some women aren’t as lucky. In my opinion, we have made progress as a society in terms of bringing light to the very dark subject of sexual harassment, but that doesn’t mean we cannot do better. Catcalling is a result of a society that does not respect women as equals. I don’t think catcalling is going away any time soon, unfortunately, but we must break this system of objectification for women’s safety. Sexual harassment is not just a global issue — it affects our friends, our family members, our fellow students and us. We cannot continue to allow catcalling to be brushed off as harmless when it has the possibility of leading to more terrifying situations, especially kidnapping or assault. I want to be able to get into my car without having to quickly lock the doors and check my backseat. I want to be able to walk to my apartment from campus without holding a key like brass knuckles. I am tired of constantly being on guard. The parking lot incident was not my first experience with sexual harassment, and unfortunately, I know it won’t be my last. At 17 years old, I was hired for my first job by a restaurant’s 30-year-

old kitchen manager solely because I was “hot.” On one of my first Saturday night shifts, I was the only girl working in the kitchen, along with my manager and two other older men. My manager came up behind me and pointed to my butt, letting me know I had a “cool zipper on my butt where I could hold my dollar tips.” They told me they loved when girls wore leggings in the kitchen because looking at a “good piece of ass on the job” helped make the hours go by quicker. Realizing he could get in trouble for these comments, he pulled me toward the section of the kitchen where no cameras were present to tell me not to tell anyone what he said because “we’re family, after all.” I responded by telling him the comments made me feel uncomfortable — he laughed at me and said it was really no big deal. When I told my boyfriend at the time what had happened, he looked at me as though I was crazy for feeling uncomfortable and dirty. I thought if no one else considered it a big deal, maybe I should just let it go. So, I didn’t report the situation. Instead, I worked my shifts with zero complaints. These harassers normalize our discomfort, and they gaslight our emotions.

Brothers Fashion Show Party Because of this, we hesitate reporting incidents of sexual harassment because what if we’re just being dramatic? What if we are lying? What if we just want attention? There is a bigger problem in our society if nearly every woman in our lives has had an experience where she felt unsafe or uncomfortable due to the comments and actions of others, most often men. Deciding not to talk about it only sweeps the issue under the rug — it doesn’t eliminate it. Education for both parties — for men to be educated on comments and actions that make an individual uncomfortable and for women to be educated on what to do if these events occur — is so important. Going forward, both men and women alike must be open to continuing the conversation about what sexual harassment and catcalling are and ways to combat them. I’m not calling for every man to completely cut off women and go nowhere near them. Rather, I’m calling for a change in the way we approach this topic, starting with a mutual understanding of actions and words that may result in a woman’s discomfort.
