CALLED INTO QUESTION In 2016, 21 calls have been made to 911 from the Village Pantry, 9 since school began


Patrick Calvert Political Reporter

he Village can be a lively place on the weekends, with a number of bars and restaurants attracting big crowds. But recently, the commotion has become too much to handle, some who live and work in the bustling area said. The Village Pantry near University and Dill streets has made nine calls to 911 since school started Aug. 22, All calls made from the Village: These include calls made to MPD or UPD from University to Dill Street.

according to University Police Department crime logs. Altogether, there have been a total of 21 calls from the location since the beginning of 2016. Patrick Townsend, a clerk from Yorktown who works at the Village Pantry, said he doesn’t feel safe working at the gas station on the weekends. One recent night in particular shocked him the most.

GRAD BLOGS, TRAVELS FOR LIVING Alumna shares post-grad career experience in the travel industry Samantha Kupiainen Daily News Reporter When you’re a travel agent post-graduation, traveling is part of your job description. It’s one descriptor that Ball State alumna Lucia Borgmann can’t get enough of. “Just picture me with a huge grin on my face, wheeling my luggage down the streets of Vancouver, passing food trucks, skyscrapers, bars and foreign restaurants to get to my hotel on Robson Street,” she said, describing a recent trip to Canada. Borgmann majored in geography with a focus on travel and tourism and minored in anthropology. Since graduating, she has begun working for Great Destinations, a travel agency here in Muncie, and started a travel blog to share her adventures, “Wanderlust Lucia.” Her inspiration to be a travel agent came from her mother, who was also a travel agent, as well as the Travel and Tourism degree at Ball State. “I know that my career will always be in the travel industry, so I figured a travel blog was a good way to practice my writing and also tell stories about my travels and what it is like to be a travel agent,” Borgmann said.

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE Samantha Brammer // DN File

Senior defender Lorina White has started on the back line in every Ball State soccer game this season. The Cardinals currently have a record of 7-0-1 in the MidAmerican Conference.

Defense leads Cardinals to 10-game unbeaten streak Jacob Lee Soccer Reporter

The third and final debate between candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is tonight.


Did Donald Trump's sexual assault comments cross the line?

Leah Mattingly, Lorina White, Taylor Pooley and Yela Zisweiler. These four defenders should be noted on every team’s scouting report. After all, they’ve started on the back line in every Ball State soccer game this season, and the Cardinals are on top of the Mid-American Conference standings with a 7-0-1 record (12-2-2 overall), with just 10 goals allowed through 16 games. And only two of those goals were scored during Ball State’s current 10-game unbeaten streak. Filling out the back half of the lineup has been a nobrainer for head coach Craig Roberts.

Every issue we take a look at a national or worldly topic and get student commentary on what's happening around the globe.


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) —There are an estimated 21.6 million veterans in the United States. Among them, nearly 9 million are enrolled in health care provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs. About 4.3 million veterans get disability compensation from the VA and nearly 900,000 have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. WHERE THEY STAND Hillary Clinton has pledged to ensure veterans have access to timely and high-quality health care and vows to block efforts to privatize the Veterans Health Administration, the VA’s health-care arm. Clinton also wants to bolster veterans’ benefits, including education and housing aid included in the GI bill. She would

ensure that military sexual trauma is acknowledged as a disability under VA rules. Donald Trump says he will expand programs that allow veterans to choose their doctor — regardless of whether they’re affiliated with the VA — and still receive government-paid medical care. Trump says that’s not privatized care but, he told The Associated Press, “a way of not allowing people to die waiting for doctors.”



WHY IT MATTERS Lifetime health care is part of the bargain for many of those who put their lives on the line in the armed forces, and it’s become clear the government isn’t holding up its end. Veterans are also a politically consequential group. Nearly 70 percent voted in the 2012 presidential election, a higher rate than the general population.



“I’m not really big into politics so I can’t say who would be best, but this is important because veterans deserve more because they put their lives out there,” the sophomore premedicine major said.


“Trump has publicly denounced veterans with PTSD and said they are not strong enough. He is definitely not the best choice,” the junior telecommunications major said.

4-DAY FORECAST Ethan Rosuck Weather Forecaster




“I feel like Hillary Clinton is only out for her own gain and Trump is just a spoiled brat who doesn’t really care about veterans and their health care,” the senior computer science major said.

Booker fills in for injured starter on offensive line

Grace Ramey // DN File

Ball State offensive lineman Kadin Booker has filled in for injured starter Steve Bell in the last two football games. In those starts, the Cardinals have run for a total of 522 yards.

Redshirt sophomore proves himself in previous two starts Jake Fox Football Reporter Ball State offensive lineman Kadin Booker isn't an ordinary backup. When senior Steve Bell missed time in the offseason with an injury, Booker took first, second and even third team reps. He's had the same training as a starter, and with Bell sidelined by a foot injury, Booker has started the last two games for the Cardinals — and hasn't skipped a beat. "Game 1 was just OK," said offensive line coach Kyle DeVan. "I thought Game 2, golly, he got better. He got better from the first quarter of Game 1 to the fourth quarter of Game 1, and did the same thing in the second game against Buffalo. ... Those little things he cleaned up, and I thought he did a great job stepping in and performing." Booker entered the game late in an Oct. 1 loss against Northern Illinois, only his second career appearance in a Ball State uniform after transferring from Monroe College in New York. When Bell was ruled out the following

week at Central Michigan, it was Booker's job to again step in at right tackle. The redshirt sophomore admitted he was a little anxious at first, but as the game went on he settled into the role he had been preparing for. "When you first go out there you're nervous to see all the people in the crowd," Booker said. "But then after that first hit, you're ready to go." Booker's progression took another big leap last weekend at Buffalo. The offensive line paved the way as sophomore running back James Gilbert rushed for 264 yards, the second-highest single-game rushing total in school history. Several of Gilbert's big runs in the second half went to the right side where Booker blocks, including an 80-yard touchdown that put Ball State up 21-14 with 3:28 left in the third quarter. "I've seen guys in backup roles go in there and the offense stinks, and subconsciously, you think it's your fault," DeVan said. "Well, when we were able to go in there and have a ton of success, and run the ball at Buffalo like that, I know it proves to him he can play at this level.

KADIN BOOKER — BIOGRAPHY • Jersey number: 58 • Year: Redshirt sophomore • Position: Offensive line • Height: 6-foot-6 • Weight: 286 lbs. • Previous school: Monroe College

And he should never think that he can't." Booker has a physical gift that most linemen aren't blessed with: long arms. He can use that length to create separation in pass protection and is working on being more aggressive in run-blocking schemes. The offensive line has been solid since he entered the lineup, but there have been slip-ups, like when a Buffalo defensive lineman broke through to force a fumble by quarterback Riley Neal. Still, Booker said the rest of the starters have welcomed him and helped a lot in his development. "Coach DeVan always preaches, 'You practice how you play,'" Booker said. "For the older guys, they've really showed us how to practice right and how it translates to the game." At practice Tuesday, Booker was still

taking first-team reps at right tackle. Bell was in full pads, without the walking boot he's been sporting the past couple weeks, but head coach Mike Neu seems comfortable with Booker if Bell is forced to miss more time. "I think he's done a nice job," Neu said. "He's one of those guys that two weeks ago, he had no playing time. ... I think that's good for him to be able to get those repetitions. Yes, we miss Steve Bell, we'd like to have him on the field, but I think [Booker] has done a great job and is getting better and better each week. Booker knows his time as a starter might not last much longer, but that won't change the way he has approached the game this season. "I'm just trying to find something every day to get better at," Booker said. "I know [Bell is] just about back healthy now, so we'll see what happens this week. But I'm still preparing like I'm the starter." Contact Jake Fox with any questions or concerns at @FoxJake_

• Nine shutouts (1st MAC) • .62 goals allowed per game (1st MAC) • Two goals allowed during 10-game unbeaten streak

“Each of them are talented in their own different ways, whether it is speed or it is decision making,” Roberts said. “Each player on the back line is not the same, though they are balanced, and they are consistent. You get some major strengths they bring to the game, and because of that, they’ve been very productive.”

A PARTICULAR SET OF SKILLS Mattingly, now a senior, immediately made her mark when she arrived on campus in 2013. She started Ball State’s season opener as a freshman and has been in every game since, starting all 78 of the Cardinals’ games over the last four years. Now, Mattingly is the captain of the team and owns the Ball State record for most minutes played. The rest of the defense didn’t start coming together until 2015, when White transferred from Monroe College in New York and Pooley enrolled as a freshman. White, like Mattingly, started every game in her first year at Ball State. Thenjunior White became the first Cardinal to ever win MAC Defensive Player of the Year. While White and Mattingly led Ball State to last season’s regularseason title, Pooley watched from the sidelines, missing most of the season with an injury. She was already looking forward to getting healthy and earning a starting role this season. “I knew there would be some openings in the back line, and I was ready to do everything I can and rehab the broken ankle and do anything I can to solidify that spot,” Pooley said. It was the offseason, Roberts said, where Pooley began to shine. “We knew she was talented and we got to see a little more in the spring,” Roberts said. “Subsequently when she overcame the injury situation, she started to gain more confidence, and I began to see in her what I saw when I started

Ball State defender Taylor Pooley, along with teammates Leah Mattingly, Lorina White and Yela Zisweiler, has started on the back line for every soccer game so far this season. The Cardinals are currently on a 10-game winning streak.

recruiting her.” Zisweiler, the last piece of the puzzle, is a freshman from Spiez, Switzerland. It’s her first year playing against collegiate opponents, but she’s also a member of the Swiss U19 National Team. “[Zisweiler’s] international experience and decision-making were immediately seen during the preseason,” Roberts said. “She’s a very intelligent player, who reads the game very well, and makes good decisions.”

NIGHTMARE FOR OFFENSES No team in the MAC allows fewer goals per game than the Cardinals’ .62 average. Their two senior stalwarts are usually flanked by Zisweiler and Pooley. “Since me and [White] have been experienced with being in the backline already, I think it’s helped [Zisweiler] and [Pooley] kind of get used to playing back there since [White and I] play between them,” Mattingly said. Ball State also leads the conference with nine shutouts. Its goalkeepers, however, are near the bottom of the leaderboard with just 3.31 saves per game because less than four shots on goal get past

the defenders each game (3.94). “[The defense] does such a good job of holding teams to very few shots on goal,” said junior goalkeeper Alyssa Heintschel. “So my job is just to come up big once or twice when it does get by them.” Mattingly said the Cardinals have come a long way since her freshman season in 2013. That year, they made the MAC Tournament finals for the first time ever but lost seven games overall, including four losses in MAC play. Ball State has only lost five games in the last two seasons combined and hasn’t lost a regular season conference matchup since Oct. 18, 2015. “I think every year we’ve progressed and we’re getting better,” Mattingly said. “So it’s not a surprise we’re [40th] in the nation because we keep continually getting better, and I think we have better things to come.” THE END OF IT The Cardinals are now ranked 40th in the NCAA Women’s Soccer RPI rating — the highest they’ve ever been ranked — behind

the suffocating defense Roberts pencils in before every game. “They understand that they are a part of a unit and that collectively they need to sustain any offense that is going to be put against us,” Roberts

said. “And so by them being a very intelligent group of individuals who are consistent and can concentrate the entire time, [it] obviously gives us the backbone for the offensive unit to give them time to develop and give

them time to operate and score goals.” Ball State is on top of the conference standings and has three games remaining before the MAC Tournament. Today, the Cardinals play at Ohio (3-11-1, 1-7 MAC), followed by a matchup against second-place Kent State (10-1-2, 6-0-2 MAC) Saturday. Ball State closes the regular season Oct. 27 at home against Miami (Ohio) (8-5-2, 5-1-2 in MAC), who is tied for third. In those games, Roberts could very well tinker with his lineup. So far this season, 20 different players have started at least one game for the Cardinals. But four names will likely remain unchanged: Leah Mattingly, Lorina White, Taylor Pooley and Yela Zisweiler.

From feral to friendly Ball State professor rescues cat who loves hunting, comedy Megan Melton Daily News Reporter Editor's note: Teacher’s Pet is a Ball State Daily News series featuring university faculty/ staff and their pets. If you have any suggestions as to who we should feature next, send an email to When one thinks of the word “homeless,” an image of a cat is not what immediately comes to mind. However, one particular cat was exactly that. Poppy, a 12-ish-year-old cat, was a wild beast that was king of an apartment complex. That is, until a Ball State professor opened his door. “He was wild. He was homeless, living outdoors,” said Michael Begnal, an assistant professor of English. “So he was semi-feral. I was always a cat person so I had no problem letting him in. He clearly knew how to be inside a house. Fairly quickly, he latched on to me.” Poppy’s wild nature has never truly left him. As the saying goes, you can take a cat out of the wild, but you can’t take the wild out of the cat. Or something like that. The name “Poppy” doesn’t really describe his personality. Begnal said this cute name popped into his head and now, it’s almost ironic. “He doesn’t know how to just play,” Begnal said. “He goes all in and when he bites, he really wants to try to sink his teeth into you. You can kind of see the wild look creep into his eyes, and you know to kind of move your arms out of the way.” Poppy is also true to his fierce warrior cat reputation as he loves to hunt. “He was a very good hunter. I have seen him kill a number of animals,” Begnal said. “I’ve seen him catch a number of birds, a squirrel; it was not very pleasant. He even had a frog once.” One of Begnal’s favorite stories about Poppy is one from his hunter days. Begnal frowns upon Poppy killing small animals. Still, the


Continued from page 1 Borgmann’s blog has been more successful than she imagined it would be — but the time and effort required to make it successful have been a hurdle to keep up with, she said. “For a travel blog post to be successful or notable, you have to post three times a week. On top of working at a desk all day and writing, this has honestly been a struggle and something I know I will have to work on,” Borgmann said. The inspiration for her travel blog came from her desire to showcase all of the great things Muncie has to offer, Borgmann said. Ranging from a post about Howth, Ireland, to all of the hot spots in Muncie, her blog is captivating the highlights of having the travel bug. “I see it [Muncie] struggle with its socioeconomic issues and college living, so I wanted to put those myths that Muncie doesn’t have anything to do to rest,” Borgmann said. “For me, this job and travel blog are not about the photos taken or marking countries off a list … it is the sights, smells, sounds and people that make a destination truly remarkable.” Borgmann came to work with Great Destinations after a one-hour job shadow for an introductory class, and later after completing an internship with them as part of a degree requirement. After she completed her internship, Borgmann worked as support staff, which is the equivalent to a receptionist, and after a year began working as a fulltime travel agent. Great Destinations, a full-service travel agency, started in 1952. Their goal is to serve the community of East Central Indiana. The agency’s president, Julia Wadsworth, welcomes students to become involved with Great Destinations. “It is our hope that the Ball State students that major in travel and tourism will be exposed in our office to the many varied careers that can come from studying travel and tourism,” she said. Wadsworth couldn’t agree more that the travel industry is a career that excites and opens up doors someone could never imagine. “The most exciting part of being a travel agent is to be able to help people explore the world and explore the world in the way they want to explore it,” Wadsworth said. “Every time you pick up the phone you have no idea who's on the other end or where they want to go. It takes a broad knowledge of the world, a broad knowledge of our industry to be able to be a good retail travel agent.” Contact Samantha Kupiainen with any questions or concerns at

story of Poppy catching the squirrel was a noteworthy one. “It was fall, and I saw this squirrel coming down. I thought to myself, ‘Of course, the squirrel sees him there,’ but I was wrong. I guess the squirrel didn’t see him at all, because there were so many leaves or something, and he just sprung and caught him,” Begnal said. “There was a tussle. He suddenly sat up and lifted his head, and he was holding the squirrel by the belly with his jaws. He looked over at me with the squirrel, and I said, ‘Poppy! No! Put him down!’” Unfortunately for the squirrel, Poppy didn’t listen to his owner, and instead darted to the bushes behind the house to finish his snack in peace. Begnal’s colleague, English professor Emily Rutter, also knows Poppy.

Rutter’s favorite Poppy story is a little different than the squirrel massacre. “[Begnal] and I once took him on a long trip, and he was yowling a lot. We put in a CD of the comedian David Cross and that pacified him for the rest of the time,” she said. “So, we surmised that Poppy loves loud, often abrasive — but nonetheless hilarious — comedy.” Although the fierce Poppy has had many days fighting squirrels and frogs as “Protector Cat of Michael Begnal’s Yard,” he also has a bit of a sensitive side. “He’s been a boon companion. He’s a good guy, even though he can also be a jerk sometimes,” Begnal said. “We’ve forged a close relationship over the years, even though he doesn’t always like to acknowledge it.” Contact Megan Melton with any questions or concerns at

Latest Cave Theatre musical examines family dynamics

Alexandra Smith // DN

The Cave Theatre’s latest production, “john & jen,” will have shows today through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and additonals shows Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. The production follows the story of Jen Tracy and her very different relationships with two men with the same name.

Performance follows 39 years of one women's life, explores relationship with brother, son Alexandra Smith Daily News Reporter In the Cave Theatre’s latest production, the audience will follow the journey of one woman and her very different relationships with brother and son — two men with the same name. “john & jen” is the story of Jen Tracy, and her life from ages 6 to 45. The show focuses on her brother John in the first act, and her son, also named John, in the second act. “It shows how these relationships develop,” said Kelsey Skomer, who plays Jen. “It shows how the love that a sister and brother and a mother and son have can overcome anything.” Skomer, a junior acting major, said the show is a fun challenge because the changes between scenes and ages are so fast. Skomer plays Jen at all ages, and uses costume changes and different methods to help portray those ages. “A lot of it is mindset, but there’s also techniques,” she said. “For example, a young girl doesn’t have vibrato, so I don’t use vibrato as young Jen.” Vibrato is a singing technique that uses rapid pitch changes. The show is giving Carson Crow, a junior directing major, his first opportunity to direct and produce on his own. It’s also the first fully produced student musical in the Cave

Theatre. “It’s crazy fun,” Crow said. “There’s the music and acting sides, and so many things are layered on top of each other.” What Crow finds interesting about the show is the dynamic between what he calls the “two Jens,” the sister and the mother. “It’s interesting to see her journey,” Crow said. “She can really be herself with her brother John, but we see how that changes with her son John in the second act.” Vince DeRe, a junior marketing major, plays both Johns — Jen’s brother and then her son. For him, the show has been about getting back into the world of theater. “It’s been fun getting back into what the department is all about,” DeRe said. “It’s very refreshing from all the business classes.” DeRe has a background in theater, after performing in high school and being a theater minor. Having connections to the department, he was asked to audition by the director. Playing two different characters has been fun for DeRe; he said even though they’re both named John, they’re very distinct from each other. “It’s been fun finding the intricate details that make them different from each other,” DeRe said. For Skomer, the play has taught her a lot about working with peers. “It’s always super fun working with your classmates,” she said. “We’re learning and building off each other and get to explore the show in a way that’s very unique.”

PERFORMANCE DATES • Oct. 18-22 — 7:30 p.m. • Oct. 22, 23 — 2:30 p.m.

DeRe said trust is an important factor in making the show a success. “Everyone is their own Superman,” he said. “[Skomer] also makes everything tremendously easy for me; it’s so easy to play off her.” Crow said although the process is stressful, it’s also amazing. “I’ve learned so much about what the rehearsal process takes, what it’s like to work with actors on a full script and how to work with other directors,” Crow said. Having a musical aspect has created a different experience for Skomer, who doesn’t normally do musicals. There are about five segments less than a page long that are just speaking, she said. “The creation of the story is through music,” Skomer said. “Having the opportunity to explore character development through music is new [for me]. It’s more than just words, the way you sing a note can tell the audience something about the character.” Crow said the show appeals to lots of different audiences because of the musical aspect and the relationships in the story. “Everyone has been in one of the positions, either a sibling or someone’s child,” he said. “Everyone has experienced at least one of the dynamics.” Contact Alexandra Smith with any questions or concerns at

Koch grant causes concerns over integrity Contract allows gift to be revoked with 30 days notice Kara Berg Crime Reporter A Kentucky university is split after the Charles Koch Foundation and John Schnatter donated $10 million to fund a center for the study of free enterprise. Faculty members at the University of Kentucky are hesitant to accept the terms of the center because of a stipulation in the contract that allows Koch and Schnatter to revoke the grant at 30 days notice.

This stipulation is also present in Ball State's contract for the John H. Schnatter Institute for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise. The contract allows Koch and Schnatter to take back their gift, solely based on if they approve an annual written report the university must submit and if they are happy with the support the university is giving the center. Some faculty at the University of Kentucky say this potentially sacrifices academic freedom, and could leave the university on the hook for the center, according to Inside Higher Education. They're questioning if a gift that can be

taken back at any moment is actually a gift. But Joan Todd, university spokesperson for Ball State, said it would be "unusual" for any donor to decide to not continue funding, especially on a project they supported. Todd maintained that the university has had entrepreneurial programs for decades, and the funding from Koch and Schnatter just helps accelerate plans that were already in place. Todd said the institute has been operating since it was announced in March, because it's a continuation of something that was already underway.

The university is still searching for faculty positions for the institute, and no one has been hired yet. When Koch and Schnatter originally donated the $3.25 million to Ball State in March, some students protested against it and showed up to Board of Trustees meetings to voice their opinions. A group of students created an UnKoch My Campus branch, to "fight against outside influences they believe could corrupt academic integrity at Ball State."

Townsend said during the frenzied event he ducked into the back of the store to protect himself from flying bullets. “I don’t see how nobody got hit,” Townsend said. “It’s just a good thing the Gatorade was stacked in the window that night because if it wasn’t, somebody would have got shot.” Although Townsend said he likes his laid-back job, he thinks there needs to be more concern about the employees who work there on the weekends. “Every weekend there is only one person here,” he said. “It’s unsafe.” Townsend said he believes the Village Pantry could be safer if there were two clerks working or if the store hired a security guard. But the gas station employee said he feels like no one cares. When upper management calls about an incident at the store, they only ask if Samantha Brammer // DN anyone got hurt during the incident. The Village has seen a rise in crime since the start of the school year. The Village Pantry has made nine calls to 911 since classes started. “They call ... ‘Did anybody get hurt?’ ‘No.’ ‘OK well fine,’” Townsend said. from the shooting Aug. 28. “I would say at least 30 people were Hedrick’s roommate, said she “[There is] no real concern.” Lydia Hedrick, a senior child out there yelling and screaming at each frequently hears the emergency Townsend said there is always development major, lives in the other,” she said. vehicles coming up and down something going on at the location due apartments above the Village Panty and After looking out the window for University Avenue, as well as bar to the store’s close proximity to nearby remembered what happened during the a few seconds, Hedrick said she saw fights that happen outside of bars and bars, and he believes it has contributed “crazy” event. people ducking and running behind other businesses in the area. to an increase in crime.
