n the eyes of James Whitford, success in player development comes in two parts: finding kids with the work ethic to be great and a coach willing to push and guide them there. Ball State newest men’s basketball coach stressed the importance of both as he stood at the podium of his inaugural press conference on Wednesday. After athletic director Bill Scholl officially announced him as the 19th coach in university history, Whitford said the main focus in his first couple weeks on the job would be finding assistants, recruiting and forming relationships with existing players. “The talent pool we bring in and the staff we bring in are the two most important factors in us having success,” Whitford said.

BSU PLAYING 2 RANKED TEAMS Cards first in MIVA hitting percentage in 10-game streak
EVAN BARNUM-STEGGERDA CHIEF REPORTER @Slice_of_Evan
Six weeks ago, Ball State men’s volleyball slunk out of Loyola in a weekend where it was swept by then-No. 12 Lewis and Loyola. Those losses extended Ball State’s losing streak to five games at 8-5 overall and 3-5 in the conference. This weekend when No. 9 Lewis and No. 11 Loyola visit Worthen Arena, they will face a reinvented team, averaging a .328 hitting percentage (which would be first in the conference and second in the nation) since
those matches. No. 15 Ball State is on a 10-match winning streak, including wins over then-No.10 Penn State and then-No. 8 Ohio State, and has only dropped two sets, making the numbers next to the team’s names a little less important. “The rankings say we’re an underdog, but if you asked our guys, I don’t think they are feeling like that,” head coach Joel Walton said. These two last regular season matches that impact on where Ball State will be seeded in the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association conference tournament, which is based on conference standings. Depending on outcomes Ball State could finish as high as second, or drop as low as fifth.

AP correspondent shares Niger story 2 time Pulliam winner talks hunger brides of African country JEREMY ERVIN CHIEF REPORTER | email@example.com
Rukmini Callimachi has been called a combat journalist, a title she said she doesn’t agree with. However, she has seen one war, countless coups and multiple massacre sites during her time in French West Africa. Callimachi didn’t come to Ball State to talk about the deaths of men, but the lives of young girls: the hunger brides of Niger. The Associated Press West Africa correspondent met with students in Cardinal Hall at the L.A. Pittenger Center to discuss the writing and research of her piece, “The Hunger Brides of Niger.”
Callimachi began by outlining a problem for writers attempting to capture the pain of the problems contemporary Africa faces. The first slide of her PowerPoint presentation read “Another Famine – How to make readers care.” Twelve of the twenty least-developed countries in the world fall within her area of reporting. After receiving a tip of an impending food shortage in Africa, Callimachi wanted to dig deeper than the typical stories and photos of crying mothers and malnourished babies, cynically monikered “famine porn,” by some in the industry due to its repetitive and fantastic nature. “I wanted to get beyond the walls of the feeding center,” she said. In the country of Niger, and more specifically the region of Maradi, young girls are married off to suitors in exchange

Attendees of an independent film screening Thursday night will be transported to a community that takes a medication called “torpase” that prevents its users from experiencing psychological pain or pleasure. The smothering of emotion and the dark implications therein couldn’t more purely contradict the namesake of the story’s setting “Cheery Point” in North Carolina. Ball State alumnus Kenny Stevenson has created a number of short films and started his film company, Versa Studios, at Ball State. After building up Versa Studios, Stevenson set his sights on producing a full-length feature film — which became “Cheery Point.” On Thursday at 9 p.m., the most open and complete showing of the vision will hit the CHEERY POINT team’s screen at the AMC 12 WHAT Theater in Muncie. Independent film The film is an indepenscreening dent production, where WHEN much of the project’s 9 p.m. staff are students. SteWHERE venson financed about AMC 12 Theater half of the film’s $20,000 in Muncie budget with the David Letterman Scholarship he received, rest of the money was raised through loans, contributions and a Kickstarter campaign. Money is an overwhelming challenge for most independent film projects and “Cheery Point” was no exception. The production team paid for the travel and living expenses for cast and crew. Because the film was shot in locations in Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, travel reimbursements presented significant costs. Organizers recruited actors online through the Indiana Filmmakers Network, gaining professional talent close to home. In order to better accommodate professional actors, the primarily student crew developed guidelines and protocols to provide a consistent and professional working environment.

WHITFORD SHINES IN EARLY SHOWING
WHITFORD: Coach has familiarity with senior Jesse Berry | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 With that in mind, the former Arizona assistant said skill improvement, for the time being, was left up to the players. Instead of working them out in the final week and a half permitted by the NCAA, Whitford said he would wait until the first summer session of school to start a skills program. Individual player meetings are scheduled for this week to talk about expectations in the final four weeks of school to prepare for the program, Whitford said. “We invest our time in skill development year round because making these kids better is what it’s all about,” Whitford said. Former Cardinal Dennis Trammell (2003-05) made it clear he agreed after questioning Whitford about his plans for skill development in the press conference and talking to the Daily News afterwards. After playing for whom he called one of the best skill developers in the country in Tim Buckley, Trammell said player progression is the biggest thing holding Ball State back from success. “When I went here, even the guys who didn’t play a whole lot became better players through practice and individual skill work,” Trammell said. “When you become a better player it ends up helping the team.” Whitford said he plans to meet with each player on the roster individually in the next few days to continue to get to know them. While he admitted he’s more familiar with players like senior guard Jesse Berry because of former recruiting ties at Xavier, Whitford has gone out of his way to get up to speed on others. “In the last couple weeks I’ve really started paying attention,” Whitford said. “I started watching film on the guys before I got the job to get a better feel for who they were. You can learn a lot by looking at the numbers the type of shots they take and how they take them.”

Coach James Whitford fields questions from the media after the conclusion of the formal press conference Wednesday. Whitford started out with a press conference in the Alumni Lounge, then visited students during lunch at the Atrium and later met with Muncie community members at the YMCA.
New hire committed to increased student voice BSU administration came to Whitford with interaction idea
MATT MCKINNEY ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR @Matt_D_McKinney
When Bill Scholl was hired as Ball State athletic director a year ago, it ushered in a new era of interaction between students and coaches. But the level of interaction was never more obvious as Wednesday afternoon when recentlyannounced men’s basketball coach James Whitford made his way to the Atrium after his introductory press conference to talk to Ball State students. He began with a statement asking for fan support and making a pitch to boost college attendance, then opened up for questions from the crowd. Only one person from the crowd was brave enough to yell one out, as graduate student Marcus Watts stepped
forward and shouted, “Are we going to the tournament?” The group of students applauded and cheered at his confidence. Whitford’s answer exuded just as much confidence. “That’s why we came here,“ Whitford said. “We’re here to compete for championships and to go to the tournament. I’ve coached against Ball State and I’ve been on the wrong end of some of those Bonzi Wells days. I look forward to getting back to that era.“ Whitford said the introduction to students was the administration’s idea, but he jumped on board immediately. “It was a great idea,“ Whitford said. “One of the things we talked about in the search was ways to get the fans involved. I expressed to them that I’m willing to do any and all things they ask me to do because one of my jobs as a head coach is to generate interest and fan support.“ After Watts’ question, students formed a line to meet Whitford
and have a brief conversation. “I think the coach needs to be introduced to everybody on campus,” Watts said. “That way everybody knows who he is and what he’s about.” Watts is ready to see a new era of basketball culture at Ball State. “When a new coach comes to a school, you have to have a change of atmosphere,“ Watts, who is studying exercise science, said. “We want him to bring [the winning] culture here. We want that hard work, we want that effort.“ Tim Stavros, a sophomore sports administration major, said he wants even more interaction between students and members of Ball State athletics. “I’ve been here two years and I haven’t really seen this in the time that I’ve been here,“ Stavros said. “I think the students need it. I think [coaches] need it as well. That’s what I told the coach. It goes both ways. “The more he comes out, the more people he’s going to bring in.“
of the blue,” Whitford said. “He said ‘I want you to work with the program, be a student assistant, work as a manager.’” After two days on the job, Whitford knew he wanted to coach basketball for the rest of his life. From Wisconsin, Whitford moved to an assistant position at Miami of Ohio in the Mid-American Conference, making trips to Worthen Arena regularly. Whitford said the tradition of Ball State basketball is what made the job opening appealing to him from the beginning. But having been an assistant at Miami and Xavier, he was sometimes on the wrong end of the tradition. “I have two memories [about Worthen Arena] that I couldn’t forget,” Whitford said. “Every
time you get the defensive rebound and go to outlet the ball, don’t throw it until you see Bonzi [Wells] ... I always remember telling our players I don’t care how many times Duane Clemens goes left, when he hesitates he’s going left again.” The stories were followed by laughter from the packed crowd inside the Alumni Lounge at Worthen Arena. Ball State athletic director Bill Scholl said during the interviewing process with Whitford, was impressed by his recruiting he had done in Indiana and the Midwest. “I heard some stories today that I hadn’t heard,” Scholl said. “Clearly his ties to the Midwest, to Indiana ... certainly having ties to the area was an important factor.”

Through many of the early stages of his coaching career, Ball State men’s basketball coach James Whitford held connections to the Muncie community. As he was introduced as the 19th men’s basketball coach in Ball State history, Whitford spoke about his past experiences with Ball State and Worthen Arena. He also said how he got his start into coaching basketball with the help of a former Ball State player. “Ray [McCallum] called me out
TUESDAY, April 16 7:30 P.M. at Emens Auditorium
During James Whitford’s introductory press conference Wednesday, I listened for verbal pauses. I looked for nervous body language. I waited to see a wide-eyed man who felt small in one of the biggest moments of his life. And I came up completely empty. Whitford was charismatic, charming and poised in front of a packed room of donors, media members and Ball State athletics employees. He talked about how his children thought Ball State was in the NCAA Tournament Championship game, and how he first introduced his wife to his parents at Worthen Arena nine years ago. The former Arizona associate coach had the audience laughing throughout the entire press conference. And steadily, an anonymous man to the Ball State community became one of the family. Call it hyperbole if you want, but for a while I could have sworn I was listening to Bill Clinton speak about being named the new Ball State men’s basketball coach (the good Bill Clinton). It was the kind of performance needed for a coach stepping into a job that has as apathetic a fan base as Ball State does. Whitford will look over tape from last season and quickly learn that Ball State fans don’t embrace the Arizona motto of “Bear Down.” They just barely show up. So after six seasons of Billy Taylor’s uninspiring attitude, the program desperately needs energy. Whitford certainly brings that. Think back to when Pete Lembo was named the new Ball State football head coach. After two miserable years under Stan Parrish, Lembo sold himself as a likeable man who had the skills to rebuild the program. And so far, he has delivered. Two years later, Whitford mirrored Lembo in his first appearance with the Ball State community. But words don’t turn a program around, no matter how eloquently they are delivered. Wins do. Whitford doesn’t have the luxury to develop the team for a few years before the program becomes a consistent winner. Ball State fans are impatient for success after watching Lembo and women’s basketball coach Brady Sallee reach it so quickly. Whitford will need to prove that his teams won’t underperform the way Taylor’s did, and that his promises to install an up-tempo offense and great defensive identity won’t be empty come November. Ball State fans have every reason to trust that athletic director Bill Scholl and deputy athletic director Bill Hardin hired the right coach. So far, Scholl has seen success from all three of his hires in the past year. So as a fan, cherish this moment. For the first time in a long time, the future of Ball State men’s basketball looks promising.

The Tunnel of Unwanted Things is where anything that is less than the very best is sent. The tunnel was built out of material found during the course of rehearsals. The crew began searching for useful items at the beginning of the semester.
umpster diving is the art of sifting through someone’s garbage in hopes of finding a treasure. The process can be rewarding or discouraging, which is a lesson the crew of “Still Life With Iris” has discovered over the course of three months. Since the beginning of the semester, 30 students have been preparing for the premier of “Still Life With Iris” by digging through the dumpsters on campus for reusable material. In hopes of reducing their carbon footprint, the students have built the entire show out of materials they found dumpster diving, donated materials or what they already had in the theater department. “It has been a group effort to get everything we need,” set director Andrew Christianson said. “Two weeks ago an entire corner of Strother was filled with a huge pile of crud that we could dig through and find what we need.” “Still Life With Iris” is a magical play that tells the story of a young girl’s journey to return home. The play is set in a fantasy land where the workers make, by night, all of the things we see in the world by day. Ninety percent of all the materials used were found on campus. Chris Seifert, a freshman theater design and technology major, used recycled bed frames, donated pallets, thrown away treasures and trash to build a tunnel that covers the west wall of Strother Theatre. “We got the bed frames from a dorm on campus, and the pallets from different departments,” Seifert said. “We’ve been really lucky to find most of what we need in our own backyard. The project had students trying new
things and putting their imagination to good use. Sophomore acting major Nancy Hale has taken a step out of acting and tried her hand at props. Her hands moved quickly as she arranged plastic in piles and began cutting the tops off of the plastic bottles. She sat campfire style, paying close attention to the movement of the x-acto knife clutched in her grip. “It’s just like arts and crafts for adults,” Hale said. “The play is so out there that what we throw together can be out there too. We’ve found new ways to use pipes, hole punches, buttons and jars. It has been really eye opening. The concept of using recycled material came from director Wendy Saver. Saver has been trying to reduce her carbon footprint in her own life and brought the concept into her work. The project has challenged those involved to think of new ways to accomplish tasks. “We don’t realize all the products that harm our environment,” Saver said. “It has become so natural for us to take the easy route, and we’ve been challenged to stray away from that this semester.” The crew worked with a budget of zero dollars to start the project and buy materials, making them completely rely on reused materials. The only aspect of the show that didn’t cut back on its carbon footprint is the lighting and sound. To combat this aspect, the group of students will plant 50 trees at the John Craddock Wetland Nature Preserve. Freshman acting major Jake Milligan is one of the student’s participating, and to make sure the trees survive the heat, he will water them periodically this summer. “If we care for them and help them grow, they can last for hundreds of years,” he said.
A still from the film “Cheery Point,” which will play at the AMC 12 theater for a special one-night screening. “Cheery Point” explores what it means to live in a world without pain.
CHEERY: Students sacrifice college lives in film process “Something we found out was a big deal is confidence,” junior telecommunications major Andrew Bennett said. “It’s what separates professionalism from amateurism.” Bennett had directed several of Versa’s short films and is the associate producer for “Cheery Point.” Shooting a full-length movie around a student’s schedule presented obvious challenges. The leaders of the project spent significant time during preproduction and the crew traveled nearly every weekend during principal photography, which lasted from Spring Break until shortly after school let out. “That sacrificed any partying, typical college lifestyle,” Bennett said. While most of the crew had experience in production, much learning was done on the go. Because most film festivals will not show a movie that has already had an official premiere, the film has not yet hosted its official premiere and instead is currently hosting “private screenings.” The first of these screenings was held in Louisville, Ky. at the Baxter Theatre, where around 200 viewers

saw the first draft of the film. The film is still open to editing because there has been no official premiere, but Bennett said that any changes made from this point are likely to be minute. Versa hopes to raise enough money from these screenings to submit to film festivals, for which there is a registration cost. Cheery Point’s publicist is a junior public relations major Dylan Pieri. He has promoted the film by maintaining a presence for “Cheery Point” on social media. The crew recorded behind the scenes footage of the production, which can be found on the Cheery Point YouTube channel. The availability of these videos paid off in unexpected ways. Review of this content, prompted Ball State graduate and Hollywood actor Doug Jones to record a short video promoting the film. Jones has been cast in films like “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Doom” and the “Hellboy” series. “It’s about a whole group of people who sacrificed being a college student for a whole year to make sure this would happen,” Bennett said.
Play focuses on tradition in the face of Russian revolution MORGAN WEBSTER STAFF REPORTER | email@example.com In the small Russian village of Anatevka, the beginnings of the revolution begin to tremble beneath the villagers’ feet. “Fiddler on the Roof” is not just about iconic songs and spontaneous dancing; it’s a story depicting the unstoppable forces of change on an alienated village. “Fiddler on the Roof” opens this weekend at the Muncie Civic Theater in downtown Muncie. The musical centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish traditions while other influences are infringing on their lives. With a play that has 60 members in the cast, Laura Williamson, the director of the musical, said they wanted to create a community. “You never know how people are going to get along with each other by being a big cast and that is the risk. I have to say that it has been amazing, they have become more than a community but they have become mostly a family.” When being in a play with cast members from ages 12 months to 80 years old, sometimes it can be a lot of work trying to become the character.

$15 for adults, $10 for students and children wasn’t hard for him to evolve into this character. “I like to think of myself as a rebel sometimes, so getting into this character really isn’t that hard, it’s just believing in the character is the main part,” Carrol said. The play was first introduced in 1964 and is almost 50 years old. Williamson said that they started planning for the play a little bit after Christmas. “As a director you are looking at certain things, and it is easy to become focused on certain aspects of the story and miss other things because you are so focused on one particular thing,” Williamson said. The preparation for the play has been a lot of work and the characters will be able to show their work to Muncie starting on Friday. “We just used costumes for the first time the other night and it gave everyone the sense of this is real, this is coming up soon,” Carrol said. “I think everyone is excited and just ready to open up and show everyone what we have been working on.”

ORGANIZATION TO RAISE FUNDS AT BSU
Building Tomorrow Indianapolis has returned to Ball State for the second time to help raise money to build a school in Uganda. The event is called Bike to Uganda and Ball State students and participants ride stationary bikes while raising money. For every mile that volunteers bike, funds are raised to help build the school. The goal is to bike the distance to Uganda by adding up the miles on the stationary bikes and raise money along the way to help fund the construction of Building Tomorrow primary-level academics throughout Uganda. Building Tomorrow will be on campus for three hours on Friday at 11 a.m. All participants have to do is donate $15, which will give them each 30 minutes of ride time. The event is a way to help motivate Ball State to use resources and help bring education to kids in Uganda. If enough money is raised, Ball State architecture students will be involved in designing the school, and the Ugandan school’s colors will be cardinal and white. All the money raised through the organization goes to building the school. The goal for this week at Ball State is to raise $750, but the organization hopes to eventually raise $60,000 total for every school that participates. Vice President Ben Easley said Bike to Uganda already had a good start on their goal of $750 as of Tuesday, from money raised through donations. – JORDAN CLECKLEY

Climbers to compete at wall Speed climbing, bouldering to be part of competition RAYMOND GARCIA STAFF REPORTER | firstname.lastname@example.org
Dozens of climbers will be bouldering, speed climbing and competing Friday on the Student Recreation and Wellness Center’s rock wall. The second Boulder Ball will take place at 7 p.m Friday at the climbing wall in the Recreation Center. Registered climbers can compete in three different events: speed climbing, a dyno competition and the bouldering competition. Bouldering is rock climbing without a rope or harness and is usually reserved for shorter climbs.
About 40 climbers, including semi-pros from Kentucky and climbers from Purdue and Ohio universities, participated last year. “The event was originally started as another multi school competition last year,” said Jerrette Girardier, an Outdoor Pursuits employee and junior criminal justice major. While climbers from all over are welcome, the main focus is to encourage Ball State students to participate. “We decided to make it more for our patrons here, rather than reach far outside of the school,” said Megan Harris, an Outdoor Pursuits employee and a junior dietetics major. “It’s more of a big conference for climbers here. We still invite schools like Purdue and Indiana University to it.” The event offers different

will also have a chance to race each other in a speed climbing competition along the easy side of the wall. Prizes will be awarded to division winners and all registered competitors receive a swag bag which includes the official Boulder Ball T-shirt. After the series of competitions, the wall will be open until midnight for black light climbing, which is free and open to everyone. Participants are encouraged to dress to glow. The cost for late registration is $15 for Ball State students and non-affiliated students for $20. Participants may register up until 6 p.m. Friday. The climbing wall will be closed Thursday and Friday in preparation for the event. The wall will reopen at 7 p.m. Friday for the competition and resume normal hours Saturday.
CALLIMACHI: Story framed around young girls’ rapes on their wedding nights | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Callimachi eventually found a young girl who she determined to be between the ages of thirteen and sixteen, who had been married off to a much older man three months before having her first menstrual cycle. The story is framed around the girl’s village of Hawkantaki, where nine of the ten young girls were married or engaged. One girl named Zali Idy was married to a 23 year-old man when she was only twelve. The girls suffered significant sexual abuse. She said the stories of these girls’ wedding nights were the stories of their rapes. During the question portion of the presentation, there was an audible gasp when Callimachi specified that these girls’ husbands were also their first cousins. Many
audience members teared up. “My goal is not so lofty as a cause,” Callimachi said when asked what she wanted readers to take away from her story. “I want them to be transported to this place.” The laughing and giggling that usually accompanies the end of a lecture was noticeably less so. Some attendees took a moment to compose themselves, while others rushed the podium to get one of Callimachi’s limited business cards. Many students said they attended as part of a class requirement but walked out with much more than points or a grade. “It was a sad story to hear,” sophomore advertising major Spencer Abbot said. “I couldn’t imagine. As a fourteen year old, marriage was the last thing on my mind.” “It made me sick to my stomach,” freshman advertising major Rachel Giese said.

People to race rubber ducks Epsilon Sigma Alpha, SGA to have toys adopted for $1 each
CHRISTOPHER STEPHENS CHIEF REPORTER email@example.com
Two student organizations will try to prove that rubber ducks are good for more than just bath time this weekend. Ball State’s first ever Adopt a Duck Race takes place from 2-4 p.m. Sunday at the Park Hall Pond. The event hosted by Epsilon Sigma Alpha and Ball State Student Government
Association will focus on community outreach. “We invited the Muncie community to come too, [because] we want to bring community kids on campus,” said Ashley Noga, fundraising chair for ESA. Participants can adopt a rubber duck for $1 which they can cheer on at Sunday’s race. Prizes are $200 for first place, $100 for second and $50 for third. The event also features inflatables, games such as “chuck-a-duck,” a lucky pond as well as a fluffy duck craft. Noga said this event came about because she wanted to establish a yearly event that included the sorority’s mascot.
“Other organizations have different annual events that are well established, and [ESA] lacked that,” she said. “We wanted to create something completely different that we could have every year.” All proceeds go to Camp Riley, a summer camp associated with Riley Children’s Foundation, which allows children 8-18 with physical disabilities to attend a summer camp to help them become independent. More than 250 ducks have already been adopted to raise money for Camp Riley. Those interested can adopt a duck before the event. ESA will have booths at the Atrium from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Friday, as well as at the Muncie Mall outside Macy’s Friday from 5-9 p.m. and Saturday 2-7 p.m. Students will also be able to adopt ducks at the event Sunday. “We hope to dump 500 ducks into the pond, [but] we still have a ways to go though,” Noga said. Noga said ESA has focused this event to bring a spirit of community between Muncie and Ball State by advertising the event throughout the Muncie community, which has only helped the group. “We have run a lot of support from several different Muncie sponsors. It’s so nice that the community has supported us,” she said.
Prosecutors accuse Manning of getting Bin Laden evidence
beyond a reasonable doubt that the intelligence is given to and received by the enemy,” Lind said. The ruling means prosecutors can call the witness during the “merits,” or main, phase of the trial. They otherwise could have used his testimony only for sentencing purposes. The witness has been publicly identified only as “John Doe” and as a Defense Department “operator,” a designation given to SEALs. Prosecutors say he participated with SEAL Team Six in their May 2011 assault on the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed. His testimony would help establish a chain of custody for the evidence from its recovery to its analysis by a computer expert. Lind ruled later in the hearing that John Doe must testify in civilian clothing and “light disguise” in a closed session at an alternate, secure location to prevent disclosure of his identity or details of the mission. The disguise cannot obscure his demeanor, body movements and facial reactions. Lind said the trial also would be closed during the entire testimony of three other unidentified “special” prosecution witnesses who will discuss classified information.

Students hold a candle light vigil to remember suicide victims and to show support for people affected by suicide. Students gather around on the University Green Sept. 10 in the evening for suicide prevention week. A Suicide Prevention advocate, Heidi Bryan, will speak at 7:30 p.m. at Pruis Hall.
SUICIDE PREVENTION ADVOCATE TO TELL HER STORY OF ATTEMPT, LOSS A National Suicide Prevention advocate will speak at Ball State in response to the Center of or Disease Control and Prevention’s reports that suicide rates peak in the spring. “That spike from winter to spring is important to point out,” said psychology doctoral student and event coordinator Chris Drapeau. “I think it is really important because you don’t have to be an expert to prevent suicide, but I think it is important that people educate themselves on what to look for and what to do.” National advocate Heidi Bryan, who is also a suicide attempt survivor and suicide loss survivor, will speak at 7:30 p.m. today at Pruis Hall. Drapeau arranged the event along with sponsors including the Counseling Center and East Central Indiana Suicide Counseling Center. During Bryan’s speech, information will be given on how the attendees can prevent suicide, Drapeau said. “It’s important to hear her story just to understand what she went through and [how] she coped with the people who she lost and her own issues,” Drapeau said. “A lot of times in the media, we hear about the people who die, but we don’t often hear stories about the people who survive and go on to have what we would consider normal, healthy lives after. There are other options besides suicide.” Ball State’s suicide prevention hotline 1-800-273-8255 (TALK). – EMMA KATE FITTES

FORT MEADE, Md. — A military judge cleared the way Wednesday for a member of the team that raided Osama bin Laden’s compound to testify at the trial of an Army private charged in a massive leak of U.S. secrets to the WikiLeaks website. Col. Denise Lind ruled for the prosecution during a courtmartial pretrial hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning at Fort Meade, near Baltimore. Prosecutors say the witness, presumably a Navy SEAL, collected digital evidence showing that the alQaida leader requested and received from an associate some of the documents Manning has acknowledged sending to WikiLeaks. Defense attorneys had argued that proof of receipt wasn’t relevant to whether Manning aided the enemy, the most serious charge he faces, punishable by life imprisonment. The judge disagreed. “The government must prove

Run to benefit multiple sclerosis understanding Departments to teach people about overall well-being
JEREMY ERVIN CHIEF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The Jeff Clevenger 5k has attracted runners since the first step was taken ten years ago, but the event this Saturday is another bounding stride in a growing and evolving narrative that began in tragedy. Ball State alumnus Daniel Clevenger began the event after his father, Jeff Clevenger, passed away from multiple sclerosis in 2009. Daniel Clevenger was the president of the Ball State Exercise Science Club and started the 5k as a way to raise awareness for multiple sclerosis and to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Daniel Clevenger built the run from the ground and organized it in a time of the year that was devoid of 5k events at the time. “It became my baby because it was so close to my heart,” he said. Daniel Clevenger graduated in 2010 but the 5k blossomed into a burgeoning legacy. This year the race will be paired with an accompanying health fair operated by Dr. Larry Judge’s EXSCI 320 immersive learning class. “We want people to understand how important health is,” senior exercise science major Morgan Gipson said. The fair will be at Northside Middle School on Bethel Ave., where willing participants can also register for the event. Visitors can receive evaluations on their blood pressure, blood glucose levels, height, weight, body composition and more. Participants can then take this information to consultants in the exercise science 320 class and receive dietary, exercise and other health advice based on their readings. The fair is also serving smoothies and healthy snacks. Visitors will be able to visit a booth that helps them
understand the struggles of living with multiple sclerosis first hand, replicating symptoms like damaged touch perception. The exercise science course purchased food for the event, an expense that used to fall upon other organizers to contribute. Additionally, the sports administration 402 course has put together promotional materials for the race. Also, this year is the first time the race will use chipped timing, which organizers say will help ensure more quick and accurate results. Runners wear a small device on their shoe or bib and sensors along the route record the runner and their time. Organizers said that this should expedite the presentation of prizes. Their goal is to present them the morning of the race instead of mailing them out like in years past. The past three races have raised around $15,000. Exercise Science Club president Erin Yoeman hopes to set a new record and break the $5,000 mark. Also, contributions from individuals outside of the exercise science major have been more prevalent this year, indicating an expansion of influence outside of the event’s community of origin. Business sponsors have played a larger role than they have in the past. They not only provide lumps sums of cash for representation on banners or shirts, but they also provide coupons for runner’s swag bags. The Indianapolis Colts contributed a package that includes a Colt’s yearbook, apparel and other gear for a silent auction that will also be hosted at Northside Middle School. Yoeman said that pre-registration is modest, netting only around 70 runners. However, most participants register the day of. Organizers are anticipating 200 to 300 runners. “It’s turned into a really powerful weekend,” Daniel said. “It’s a time to get together, support the cause and remember my dad.”

â€˜Defining Spaceâ€™ debuts for showcase Choreography show varies from â€˜darkâ€™ to â€˜athletic, modernâ€™ KELLI BENNETT STAFF REPORTER | email@example.com Take a trip into â€œdisturbing realityâ€? through this weekendâ€™s Junior Choreography Showcase titled â€œDefining Space.â€? Eight junior dance majors and minors of the department will debut their choreography talents in Ball Gym as a part of the departmentâ€™s annual showcase. The show will open in the Korsgaard Dance Studio on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Each Spring Semester junior dance majors and minors of the program get the opportunity to participate in the showcase, exhibiting their creative talents and bringing a memorable
show to the Ball State and Muncie communities, said the group of choreographers. This year is no different; the students promise a show of variety including a dark contemporary piece â€œA Disturbing Reality,â€? choreographed by Emily Schmidt; a more athletic modern dance, â€œThrough the Waves,â€? arranged by Michele Mackowiak and â€œWhen the Sun Goes Down,â€? a contemporary modern piece by Madison Baker. Tori Cashman, a sophomore dance major and performer in the showcase, believes the showâ€™s variety and flow will intrigue the audience. â€œMost of the pieces work really well together, sometimes shows are kind of all over the place and donâ€™t make a lot of sense, but the show flows pretty well together,â€? she said. This yearâ€™s showcase will end with a â€œbang,â€? said Cashman, referencing the closing tap
dance number, â€œTaylorTylerHalieBaylee,â€? choreographed by Nicholas Smith. Sophomore performer Lisa Curatolo described the piece as refreshing, offering the audience more upbeat entertainment from the dark, slower pieces. The choreographers agree the showâ€™s name, Defining Space, truly encompasses their sole intention. â€œItâ€™s [Defining Space] taking our own definitions of what the space means to us,â€? said Kristin Dowdy, choreographer of the jazz-dance piece titled â€œFlexion.â€? Name creator Kaylin Klein said both the name and show allow the choreographers and performers to express their individuality. Behind this weekendâ€™s performances are months of planning, practices and technical details. The juniors auditioned dancers during the end of the 2012 Fall Semester

and have since held weekly practices. Theyâ€™ve learned the principles of production from stage lighting and run-throughs of tech week, said Baker. Along the way, theyâ€™ve also
learned more about themselves and the others around them. â€œI know myself better ... I know who I am [as a choreographer],â€? Mackowiak said. Dancer Curatolo admitted that being led by someone her
own age was difficult, but with respect the dancers and choreographers forged through to a great show. The choreographers, along with the support from the department, urge everyone to attend this weekendâ€™s showcase with an open mind. And, if you need another reason to support, junior choreographer Seth Robinson said, â€œWho wouldnâ€™t want to see a bunch of hot ladies dancing?â€?

so Walton said that the team had been working on a few new wrinkles to try and surmount Lewis’ conference leading blocks per set and Loyola’s conference leading aces per set and overall hitting percentage. The ‘wrinkles’ will compliment play for the Cardinals that leads the MIVA in opponent’s hitting percentage, kills and digs, and also has touted four of the last five MIVA Defensive Players of the Week. “We are at a point in the year, and the point in many of our players careers, that the time is now,” Walton said. “These are two really good measuring sticks, and I’m confident in what our team can do.”
No matter where Ball State ends up, it is almost assured that it will face either Lewis or Loyola in the MIVA tournament, but that will not affect Walton’s strategy for the weekend. “I’ve got no interest in holding my cards close to my chest,” Walton said. “If anything I want to send a message to these teams that this is who the Ball State Cardinals are this year, and we’re going to be a handful. “You better be ready for us because we’re ready for you.” Because of the MIVA’s video exchange program, both Lewis and Loyola will not be surprised by Ball State’s lineup,

Q: How do you build on the most outstanding freshman award for this season?
Q: After a practice or game, what’s the first food you’d go to?
A: I like to keep to myself a lot. A lot of people see me as extroverted and always out. And I like to watch a lot of movies. A: I’d have to say “Juice.”
A: That’s really just motivation for me to get better every day because I don’t want to be a freshman sensation that comes

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Indiana’s Cody Zeller turned down one chance to play in the NBA. He couldn’t say no twice. The 7-foot sophomore center who returned to school last fall for one more shot at a national championship announced Wednesday he is leaving college early to enter the NBA draft. The reason was simple. “The leaders that I came in looking up to and copying their work ethic were Vic, Christian [Watford], Jordan [Hulls], Derek [Elston], a lot of those older guys that are leaving now,” Zeller said explaining the difference between last year’s decision and this year’s. “IU will have a great
year next year, but the guys I was closest to are graduating.” The decision was first announced on the website of his family’s business shortly before the news conference at Assembly Hall. Zeller said he was eager to start working with the Christian basketball camps being run by his parents and two older brothers, something the youngest Zeller said NCAA rules barred him from participating even though the organization is considered a nonprofit. Zeller’s announcement came 24 hours after 6-foot-5 junior
Victor Oladipo announced he was turning pro, too, in the exact same spot — at midcourt inside Assembly Hall with the school’s five national championship banners clearly visible in the background. These Hoosiers wanted to add a sixth banner but that quest fell short when East Regional champion Syracuse beat the Hoosiers in the regional semifinals. Yet when Zeller walked off the court in Washington that night, he was already pretty sure he had played his last college game.
