For the third weekend in a row, the Ball State baseball team came away victorious in three of its four games. “Once you get used to winning, losing becomes even that much harder because you like the way it feels when you win,” head coach Rich Maloney said with a laugh. “I hate to lose, and you want to develop that mentality in your program.” One day after getting shutout 0-13 by Liberty on Saturday, the Cardinals and Flames faced off again. This time, the matchup proved to be much more competitive. The Cardinals raced out to an early lead, when junior left fielder Brandon Estep’s sacri-

City shoveling law goes unenforced City Council member says citing for code doesn’t fit in budget |
KARA BERG STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Despite the amount of snowfall this winter season, one little known law isn’t being enforced in Muncie. City law dictates that by 10 a.m. each day, residents must shovel sidewalks in front of their house or face a $20 fine. “You need to shovel them, period,” said Duke Campbell, superintendent of the Department of Public Works in Muncie. Campbell said it is a resident’s responsibility to keep sidewalks clear for use, especially for people who may face difficulties moving through snow. Although the ordinance says sidewalks have to be shoveled, Campbell said they haven’t ticketed anyone this year. Linda Gregory, Muncie City Council member, said the ordinance is not enforced be-

is when owners or occupants of any buildings are required to clear their sidewalks cause it costs too much for the two code enforcers to write up every person who doesn’t shovel their sidewalks. “There are lots of laws not enforced,” Gregory said. “The main reason is there isn’t enough money in the budget to pay for code enforcement. There’s no way they could take on writing citations for every sidewalk that isn’t shoveled.” Bill Mitchell, a junior information systems major, said he doesn’t own a shovel and doesn’t plan on buying one just because of the ordinance.

VIENNA (AP) — Iran is cutting its stock of uranium that is closest to atomic weapons-grade as mandated in a deal with six world powers, the head of the U.N. nuclear agency said Monday. But Yukiya Amano noted the agency remains short of money to be able to monitor Tehran’s compliance with the agreement. As part of the six-month interim deal, Iran is to dilute half of its 20-percentenriched uranium to a lower grade suitable for use as reactor fuel. Amano told the International Atomic Energy Agency’s 35-nation board that process “has reached the halfway mark.” The other half of the uranium is to be changed into oxide, a precursor of nuclear fuel that is relatively difficult to reconvert to 20 percent. Iran has told the agency it now is working on facilities to carry out that transformation.

The idea of bus advertisements is to give cash-strapped school districts a way to raise revenue without increasing taxes. Several districts already sell advertising on their high school stadiums.

as many said they got them for free from friends or relatives. Only 15 percent of the most frequent abusers said they bought the drugs from dealers or other strangers. Those abusers “are probably using at much greater volumes and simply asking a friend for a pill now and then is not going to be sufficient,” said Dr. Leonard Paulozzi, a researcher at the CDC. The study said two-thirds of abusers used the drugs infrequently.
2. EGYPTIAN POLICEMEN GET 10 YEARS FOR DEATH 5. PARADE DEAL OVER GAY VETERANS STALLED CAIRO (AP) — A court sentenced two policemen Monday to 10 years in prison for the 2010 brutal beating death of a young Egyptian that became a rallying cry for the protesters who overthrew longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak. Rights groups, however, said the years-long wait before anyone was held accountable for the killing of 28-yearold small businessman Khaled Said in the port city of Alexandria highlights that the wider problem of police abuse,
a major grievance of the 2011 protesters, remains unresolved. Photographs of the dead Said’s face, disfigured by what appeared to be a brutal beating, were posted on the Internet and became a rallying cry against torture and other police brutality under Mubarak. Activists used a Facebook page set up in Said’s memory to call for the protests that ultimately forced Mubarak from power in February 2011. Authorities had long denied the killing.
BOSTON (AP) — A gay rights advocacy group said Monday that it is pushing for gay people to be allowed to march “openly and honestly” in Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, but an agreement has not been reached with parade organizers. It appeared Saturday as if Boston Mayor Martin Walsh had brokered a deal between MassEquality and parade organizers to allow gay military veterans to march under the group’s
banner, but the deal was not finalized even after both sides met a day later. The sticking point is whether and how members of the group can identify themselves in the parade. “LGBT people need to be able to identify themselves as LGBT people,” Kara Coredini, MassEquality executive director, said. “It’s as simple as that. There’s a lot of ways that can be done, and that is a conversation we’re having now with organizers.”

COLLEGE EXPENSES Army, Navy enlistment rises due to student debt DERREK TIPTON STAFF REPORTER | email@example.com
crumbling economy and student loans are leaving college students with a few options only in jump-starting their careers. One of the most common options is joining the military. Lt. Col. Wes Russell, the recruiting and operations officer for Ball State’s ROTC program, said the top two reasons college graduates join the military is to protect their country and for economic reasons. In Indiana, students with debt will accumulate an average of $27,886, according to the Institute for College Access and Success. “Sometimes, the military becomes an option for [students] to pay back loans they may have or to simply have a job for the next four to six years,” Russell said. Kathleen Welker, a public affairs officer for Army Recruiting Command at Fort Knox, Ky., said the Army brought in 4,727 graduates with bachelor’s degrees in 2013, which is slightly up from the 4,319 graduates who joined in 2012. But over at the Air Force, spokesman Michael Dickerson said the Air Force brought in 2,566 active-duty recruits, which is down from the 4,270 recruits in 2012. After he graduated with a telecommunications degree from Ball State in 2004, the job market looked bleak to Lt. j.g. Adam Demeter, public affairs officer at Navy Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Ill. He spent most of his time moving from place to place, trying to find a job that suited him. He was an assistant manager at a clothing store, a construction worker and worked a part-time job at a news station. Then one day, his sister brought him a card from a Navy recruiter, and he realized military service might be the answer. “I was working and I was doing fine, but I wasn’t happy,” Demeter said. “The Navy offers security that you can’t find anywhere else.” In 2013, a study by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity found that 48 percent of employed college graduates have jobs that do not require a bachelor’s degree. With a bachelor’s degree, graduates can apply to a version of Officer
Candidate Schools in all branches of the military. Demeter said it can be challenging to get accepted to OCS because a bachelor’s degree does not guarantee acceptance. He discovered his college grades would hurt his chances of being accepted, so he enlisted instead. Eventually, he worked his way into OCS. The duration of training at these schools vary depending on the branch, but the training typically takes around two to three months to complete. Candidates are evaluated on physical and mental characteristics to determine if they are fit to be in a leadership position. After completion, OCS graduates have a guaranteed spot in the military as an officer. Russell said some students choose another option, if they decide they want to join the military after college graduation. They can attend a 28-day Leader’s Training Course at Fort Knox, Ky., which is an accelerated version of what ROTC cadets learn in college. After the course, they can go back to school to complete a master’s degree. “They will get their master’s degree paid for and then become an officer in the military,” Russell said. Demeter said college graduates should utilize the skills they picked up in school to have a more successful career in the military. “Things I learned in college helped me when I joined,” he said.

Russia moves troops to Ukraine | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS KIEV, Ukraine — Russian troops said to be 16,000 strong tightened their stranglehold on Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula on Monday, openly defying the U.S. and the European Union and rattling world capitals and stock markets. The West struggled to find a way to get Russia to back down, but with little beyond already threatened diplomatic and economic sanctions, global markets fell sharply over the prospect of violent upheaval in the heart of Europe. For its part, Moscow reiterated its price for ending the crisis: restoration of a deal reached with the opposition less than two weeks ago to form a national unity government in Kiev that represents pro-Russian as well as Ukrainian interests, with new elections to be hosted by December. Ukraine, meanwhile, accused Russia of piracy for blocking two of the besieged country’s warships and ordering them to surrender or be seized.
Russia says Yanukovych requested troops
Ukraine’s fugitive President Viktor Yanukovych requested Russian soldiers in the strategic Crimea region “to establish legitimacy, peace, law and order,” Russia’s U.N. ambassador said Monday, contradicting the president’s own comments last week, while Ukraine’s ambassador said 16,000 troops are now deployed there. The third emergency Security Council meeting in four days came amid fears that the Kremlin might carry out more land grabs in pro-Russian eastern Ukraine. Russia faced demands from almost all council members to pull out its troops and got no support for its military action from close ally China. “With the exception of one member of the Security Council — the Russian Federation — we have heard overwhelming support for the territorial integrity of Ukraine and for peaceful dialogue,” U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said.
Ukraine’s divided loyalties
European Union leaders called a special summit for Thursday, where they are expected to freeze visa liberalization and economic cooperation talks with Russia if Moscow hasn’t taken steps to calm the crisis in Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula. EU foreign ministers said they also have stopped preparation for the G8 summit, which is set for June in the Russian resort of Sochi. EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said the EU would give Russia until the Thursday show clear signs of goodwill, including a willingness to open talks and a withdrawal of Russian troops to their barracks in the Crimea.
The United States’ reaction
In Washington, the State Department warned of a “dangerous escalation” and said the U.S. would hold Moscow directly accountable for any threat to Ukraine’s navy. Russia is “on the wrong side of history” in Ukraine, President Barack Obama said, adding that continued military action would be “a costly proposition for Russia.” Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office, Obama said the U.S. was considering economic and diplomatic options that will isolate Russia and called on Congress to work on an aid package for Ukraine. Still, it was not clear what the West could do to make Russia retreat. The clearest weapon at the disposal of the U.S. and the EU appeared to be economic sanctions that would freeze Russian assets and pull the plug on multibillion dollar deals with Russia. Already the economic fallout for Russia was being intensely felt. Russia’s stock market dropped about 10 percent Monday and its currency fell to its lowest point ever against the dollar. But the economic consequences of antagonizing Russia also were acute for Western Europe. The EU relies heavily on Russian natural gas flowing through a network of Ukrainian and other pipelines.
Russian soldiers stand guard next to a Ukrainian military base in the town of Bakhchysarai in the Crimea.
Tense standoff in Crimea
Forces of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet based in Crimea and additional Russian troops sent to the peninsula have seized or blocked Ukrainian air bases, air defense missile batteries and other military facilities, and garrisons throughout the region. Ukraine’s military acknowledged that “practically all” of its military facilities in Crimea have been surrounded or taken over. Russian forces overtook a ferry crossing linking Crimea with Russia, which would allow a quick military buildup in Crimea if Russia chooses to do so. Armed people also have sealed a narrow strip of land linking the peninsula with mainland Ukraine. The Ukrainian military said Russia has recently brought four navy ships from other seas to the Crimean port of Sevastopol. The Russians have demanded that Ukrainian soldiers in Crimea lay down their weapons. Some have agreed and left or joined pro-Russia forces. But others have refused and barricaded themselves at their bases.
EU halts Russia talks
Ukraine’s loyalties have been sharply divided between the Russian-speaking east and south, where people favor close ties with Moscow, and the west, where residents want to integrate more closely with the European Union. Ukraine’s armed forces reflect that divide. Units stationed in Russian-speaking regions are mostly manned by local residents who don’t necessarily support the new government in Kiev. That raises doubts about their loyalties in case of a military conflict with Russia. The Ukrainian military’s reluctance to confront the Russians became obvious in Crimea, where a newly named Ukrainian navy chief went over to the pro-Russian local government, a day after his appointment. Regional officials said thousands of Ukrainian servicemen have done the same, but that claim can’t be independently confirmed.

The campus master plan will not be complete until next year, and one consultant said there is “still a lot to be done.” The original goal was to complete the plan by the end of this academic year, but consulting firm SmithGroupJJR said it will work over the summer to complete the recommendations and come back to campus one more time in the fall. “Our hope is to have direction far enough along to garner strong input before the end of this semester,” consultant Michael Johnson said. “A lot of refinement is happening.”
Gregory Graham, a university architect, said pushing the plan back isn’t necessarily a setback. “It will always be an evolving plan,” he said. Masterplan.bsu.edu will host new questions today regarding student’s ideas about specific space use, like where they meet to collaborate with professors and how far they are willing to walk from parking to campus. “We are looking for continued refinement,” Johnson said. “Our hope is rather than casting a broad net, we are asking clarifying questions about ideas that have been discussed to get further clarity as we angle toward [the] refinement stage.” SmithGroupJJR consultants visited campus last week to share original ideas from the plan. The plan will address McKinley Avenue, the Quad and physical classrooms, and
the group has identified a specific plan for each area. Graham said because McKinley Avenue gets traffic from cars, buses, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians, adding parallel bike lanes near the Cow Path and accompanying bike storage is an option for the future. He said current open spaces like the Quad can be enhanced to connect other existing open spaces. “Right now, there is disjointedness from [the] old Quad to newer Quad areas,” Graham said. Johnson said the academic master plan influences the campus master plan 100 percent. The academic master plan also is currently in development. “We’re working side by side with that team,” he said. “They are helping us to determine what physical implications come out of academic goals.”
ment major Josh Berry said he always shovels his sidewalks in the winter. “I’m in a fraternity, so we have shifts when we have to shovel,” Berry said. Berry said he thought people should always shovel,
just to make their lives a little easier. “It’s hard to walk around when people don’t,” he said. “I’ve seen a bunch of people fall. I actually started walking in the streets because they’re clearer.”

Graham said the data analysis revealed a deficit in lab space classrooms, an example of something the university may address in the future if the areas of science, technology, engineering and medicine take a larger role in the academic plan. Johnson said the consulting firm wants to connect the campus plan to the academic plan with classroom space that “better meets needs of 21st century learning.” Graham said the consultants will make preliminary presentations to the Board of Trustees in the near future. He stressed the importance of the plan’s ability to be flexible based on future needs, economics and direction. Graham said it is hard to define exactly when projects are likely to happen when planning so far into the future. “[The] further you get out, it becomes cloudier,” Graham said.

MARDI GRAS: Continents participate in cultural customs, wear traditional colors | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
The most popular celebration stateside is undoubtedly in New Orleans.
Kingâ€™s Day, or Twelfth Night, usually celebrated Jan. 6, marks the beginning of the carnival season. However, the 12-day period leading up to Mardi Gras is the most eventful with more than 70 parades. While an abundance of alcohol and flashes of nudity may first come to mind, most parades and festivities are actually family-friendly. The official colors are purple, gold and green â€” representing justice, power and faith, respectively. Colored beads were
originally tossed to people who exhibited the colorâ€™s meaning. Other throws, or items tossed from floats, are cups, stuffed animals and plastic coins. When Mardi Gras celebrations first began, masks allowed people to hide their identities and socialize with people outside of their social class. Now during parades, masks are worn by float riders only, who are required to wear them by law. On Mardi Gras, the public can wear masks, too.
King cakes are popular during the carnival season. King cake parties are hosted on or after the Twelfth Night to honor the three wise men who visited baby Jesus. A tiny, plastic baby is hidden inside the braided Danish pastry

TODAY Follow the Ball State men’s basketball team as it travels to Eastern Michigan for a conference matchup.
BASEBALL: Strong pitching brings team victories during weekend road games | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The Flames proceeded to load the bases with two outs in the inning, but Ball State senior relief pitcher Tyler Jordan’s pitching helped the Cardinals escape with the lead still intact. Liberty would threaten again in the eighth and ninth innings, but once again Ball State freshman Zach Plesac stepped on the mound and delivered a performance to seal the victory and move the Cardinals to 9-3 on the season. “It would be easy to say that [Liberty] is a really good team, but that’s not how we think,” Maloney said of the way his team responded to its previous meeting with the Flames. “We want to be that team. We want to be the team that they’re saying is going to regionals.” Besides the first matchup against Liberty, Maloney’s bullpen played a vital role in the team’s three wins. In those games, the Cardinals’ bullpen pitched 12.6 innings, racking up 13 strikeouts while allowing one run to cross home plate. “It’s huge,” Maloney said. “It gives the team a lot of confidence to know that [the bullpen] can hold somebody at bay. ... You could say without question that the bullpen has been a very important piece.” Jordan made appearances in all three of Ball State’s wins over the weekend, pitching 5.2 innings, picking up a save and getting the Cardinals out of the seventh inning, bases-loaded jam in the team’s final game. Plesac also continued his start to his college career by earning his fourth victory
WEDNESDAY The Ball State women’s basketball team faces Northern Illinois at home as the season’s end draws near.
UPCOMING MEN’S BASKETBALL at Eastern Michigan | Eagles’ Record: 17-12 After beating Central Michigan in its final home game and snapping a 10-game losing streak, Ball State will attempt to earn a needed road victory this evening. For a team that sits at 0-13 on the road, winning an away game seems like a tall order, especially against Eastern Michigan. “We got a real good test this week because Eastern’s defense speaks for itself,” Ball State head coach James Whitford said. Ball State last played the Eagles on Feb. 12, where opposing center Da’Shonte Riley controlled the game on defense. Ball State lost as it committed 21 turnovers. Freshman Zavier Turner was a standout for Whitford as the 5-foot-9 point guard was praised for his ability to distribute the ball effectively with eight assists and five turnovers. Over the past three games, Turner averaged 5.7 assists and 3.7 turnovers. Senior guard Jesse Berry has improved in scoring, averaging 18.3 points during the last six games.

and second save over the weekend. His performances could make him a candidate for his second conference pitcher of the week award. Even freshman B.J. Butler came out of the pen pitching like a veteran, tossing three shutout innings in the team’s 5-4 win over Rider on Saturday. While the starting pitchers try to find their groove
FRIDAY After a weekend sweep, the Ball State men’s volleyball team takes on Belmont Abbey at home.
to start the 2014 season, the bullpen has done its part in helping Ball State race out to its 9-3 record. “It’s just a matter of time before our starting pitchers get back to their consistency level,” Maloney said. “We know they can get there, and I think when that happens, we will have a chance to be an awfully good team. ... It’s a journey.”
