SBARRO CORPORATE TIMELINE
emolition is underway as the Atrium says goodbye to a 13-year-old pizza shop. Ball State’s contract with Sbarro ended Tuesday, and the university is looking for a different pizza business to take its place, said Jon Lewis, director of Dining. “[Dining services] thought it was time for a change,” Lewis said. “We felt like students were asking for a change [after 13 years].” When the news was announced in a campuswide email, students tweeted about it — a few to say goodbye but many more to say “good riddance.”
1956 The Sbarro family opens an Italian grocery store in Brooklyn. The store also offered fresh, authentic Italian food, including homemade mozzarella, imported cheese and sausage. 1967 The family opens its first mall-based restaurant in Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Brooklyn. This store was one of the first modern Sbarro concept. 2007 MidOceans Partners, an equity firm operating out of New York and London, buys the company. 2011 Sbarro files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy as it works to restructure.

Ball State announced Tuesday that Sbarro would close Wednesday for the university to work on construction for a new pizza establishment. The university has not decided what franchise will replace Sbarro, which has been in the Atrium for 13 years.
University gives out STUDENT TURNS TO CROWDFUNDING Incoming freshman asks 22 tickets in 1st year for help to pay tuition, doesn’t have citizenship LAUREN CHAPMAN STAFF REPORTER | firstname.lastname@example.org
Burton says low amount SMOKING BAN 17 citations of smoking citations evidence of compliance were issued in the Fall Semester 5 citations ALAN HOVORKA CHIEF REPORTER were issued in the Spring Semester | email@example.com Ball State wrote 22 citations for the first academic year of its on-campus smoking ban. Gene Burton, director of public safety and University Police Department chief of police, said the low numbers show the success of the new policy. “We’ve gotten compliance without a lot of enforcement,” Burton said. “The goal was to do this without writing a lot of tickets.” The Fall Semester had 17 citations and the Spring Semester had five. Each citation is $100 — a ticket students have to pay to avoid a Bursar hold on their account, which prevents them from registering for classes or receiving their degree. The fees from collected citations work to pay for educational and promotional materials of the policy. Abe Underhill, a Dining employee who smokes, said he still has mixed feelings over the policy. “It’s not a big deal for me because I can just walk from the Student Center to an off-campus spot and smoke,” Underhill said. “For Noyer, they spend their entire break walk-

ing to a place they can smoke. I just think the university didn’t take this into consideration.” This policy generated complaints not only from smokers, but also residents in the fall on or near Petty Road, west of campus. People were cutting through yards and standing in the street off campus to smoke. During the winter, Burton said he did not receive many complaints. “There weren’t much,” he said. “Just a few people calling in here or there. What I’ve heard has been mostly anecdotal.” The Daily News reported that in the winter, some students were violating the ban intentionally because of extreme cold. This resulted in a citation for one student. However, the number of warnings given during this time are unknown.

For one incoming freshman, not even a 4.2 GPA and multiple after-school activities can make up for one major obstacle in trying to pay for college. Her citizenship status. Karla Fernandez was accepted to Ball State for this fall, but she came to the United States without legal permission. Though she has lived in Indiana since she was 3, she does not qualify for in-state tuition or certain scholarships because of legislation that passed in 2011 in Indiana. “I knew I was illegal, but I never realized all the restrictions I would have along the way,” Fernandez said. “I didn’t know I couldn’t receive scholarships. ... A few years ago, students could receive these scholarships if they had a high [grade point average].” When Fernandez realized her status meant she needed to pay out-of-state costs at Ball State — approximately $33,070 for a year of tuition, fees, room and board — she turned to social media in early April for help. She started a fundraising page on GoFundMe, which has gained statewide recognition. Her GoFundMe page has raised $14,413 for her tuition as of print. Fernandez’s situation caught the at-

It also was reported that the football meeting room will undergo renovations that cost $1.5 to $2 million. This is incorrect; it’s the coaching building that will cost $2.6 million and will start this summer.
TODAY NEW YORK (AP) — Leaders of the soon-to-open Sept. 11 museum portrayed it as a monument to unity and resilience ahead of its dedication today, saying that the struggles to build it and conflicts over its content would be trumped by its tribute to both loss and survival. “It tells how in the aftermath of the attacks, our city, our nation and people across the world came together,” former New York City Mayor Michael
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana residents with Verizon Wireless service are now able to text 911 dispatchers in nearly a third of the state’s counties. Other cellphone companies are looking to add the service for the state. Statewide 911 Board Executive Director Barry Ritter says emergency dispatchers in 28 Indiana counties had been equipped and trained to handle text-to-911 calls as of Wednesday. The goal is to expand the service statewide by year’s end. Verizon Wireless is the first carrier providing the 911-texting service. T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T also are moving ahead to provide the texting option across Indiana. Ritter said 911-texting will aid people who are deaf, hearing- or speech-impaired by allowing them to alert dispatchers in the event of emergencies. He said 911-texting would also help people who are unable to speak due to injuries or are afraid to speak in hostage situations.
Bloomberg, the memorial foundation’s chairman, said at a news conference Wednesday. “This museum, more than any history book, will keep that spirit of unity alive.” After today’s dedication, the museum will be open for six days aroundthe-clock to Sept. 11 survivors, victims’ relatives, first responders and lower Manhattan residents. Then the National September 11 Memorial & Museum opens to the public May 21.
4. NIGERIA VIGILANTES KILL ISLAMIC MILITANTS BAUCHI, Nigeria (AP) — The villagers knew an attack was coming, so they used the dark of night to ambush the suspected Boko Haram militants, killing scores and arresting at least 10 in a move to deter the extremists and make future attacks “impossible.” Vigilante groups have been springing up in north Nigeria over the past year amid accusations the military is not acting fast enough against the Islamic extremists who are holding captive
more than 270 schoolgirls. In Kalabalge, a village about 155 miles from the Borno state capital of Maiduguri, where the terrorist network was born, residents said they took matters into their own hands. On Tuesday morning, villagers ambushed two trucks with gunmen, residents and a security official told The Associated Press. At least 10 militants were detained, and scores were killed, the official said.
5. JUDGE STRIKES DOWN IDAHO’S MARRIAGE BAN
SOMA, Turkey (AP) — In a relentless procession that ignited wails of grief, rescue workers coated in grime lumbered out of a mine in western Turkey again and again Wednesday, struggling to carry stretchers laden with bodies covered in blankets. The corpses’ faces were as black as the coal they worked on daily. There were 274 of them — and the fate of up to 150 other miners remained unclear in Turkey’s deadliest-ever mining disaster.
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Gay and lesbian couples in Idaho could start getting married as soon as Friday after a judge ruled the state’s ban on samesex marriage is unconstitutional. U.S. District Magistrate Judge Candy Dale wrote in her decision that Idaho’s laws barring same-sex marriage unconstitutionally deny gay and lesbian citizens their fundamental right to marry. Ten other federal district courts have issued similar rul-
While emergency workers battled a toxic mix of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide in deep underground tunnels to try to find survivors, anger and despair engulfed the town of Soma, where Turkish officials said at least 274 miners died in Tuesday’s coal mine explosion and fire. Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said 787 people had been inside the coal mine: 274 had died, 363 had been rescued and scores of them were injured.

I’m a former player and I’m 31. From that standpoint, I’m not so far removed that I can relate to the current guys on the team.

From a basketball standpoint, I think I’m well-versed, especially in the system that coach Whitford wants to run. Unlike many places as an assistant where you’re a fly on the wall early on, I think I can be a contributor from day one.

ACADEMIC ISSUES KEEPING SCHOOLS FROM POSTSEASON
NCAA looks to help grade improvement in low-income areas | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS — The money gap at Division I colleges is continuing to show up on the playing fields and in the classrooms. Thirty-six teams will be banned from the 2014-15 postseason because of subpar scores on the newest Academic Progress Rate, which was released Wednesday. Not one of them comes from a power conference. Of the 17 football and men’s basketball teams, eight are from historically black schools. Alabama State and Florida A&M made the list in both sports. Even the NCAA recognizes the disparity.
“While the low-resource institutions are overrepresented among the population (postseason bans) we’re talking about today, they’ve made improvement, they’ve made significant improvement as a group,” said Walter Harrison, chairman of the NCAA’s committee on academic performance. “They’re just starting at a lower spot. We’re trying to help them with some advice and some financing.” The NCAA has awarded approximately $4.3 million over the last three years to lowresource schools, defined as those ranking in the bottom 15 percent in funding. The money is to be used for extra tutoring or other academic resources for student-athletes. Historically black colleges and low-resource institutions have seen a 15-point improvement in one-year
APR scores over the past three years, from 947 to 962, and their four-year average has jumped 23 points, from 930 to 953, in the last three annual reports. Despite the improvement, the hardest hit league was the Southwestern Athletic Conference. Five of the league’s 10 football teams could be banned from the postseason. Alabama State, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Mississippi Valley State and Prairie View A&M all made the NCAA list. All of Southern University’s athletic teams have been ineligible for postseason play since Dec. 2 because of questions about the school’s APR data. NCAA spokeswoman Michelle Hosick said Southern was not included on the banned list because the school’s teams could still regain their eligibility.

JEREMY ERVIN NO SLEEP TILL MUNCIE JEREMY ERVIN IS A JUNIOR MAGAZINE JOURNALISM MAJOR AND WRITES ‘NO SLEEP TILL MUNCIE’ FOR THE DAILY NEWS. HIS VIEWS DO NOT NECESSARILY REFLECT THOSE OF THE PAPER. WRITE TO JEREMY AT JRERVIN @BSU.EDU.
In a mystical world consumed by darkness, the princess Aurora is the only chance for evil to be lifted. Transported from her real home on Earth, defeating the witch Umbra is the way for her to return to her father and save the magical realm. The most apparent aspect of “Child of Light” is the entire game’s striking aesthetic. Looking a lot like Ubisoft’s title “Rayman Legends,” the textures, proportions and execution all contribute to the fairy-tale feel of this side-scrolling adventure. Objects sway in the wind, tree branches creak under Aurora’s weight and the multiple layers of background counteract the restriction of movement to make the whole world feel alive and large. Almost all of the writing in the game rhymes, too. Various schemes and meters are used, but whether it’s narration or dialogue, meter and carefully chosen words invoke the spirit of ancient fables. As for the gameplay, “Child of Light” combines multiple elements in new ways. It’s a sidescroller, so hidden chests, acrobatics and puzzles are all par for the course. A door in your way? You’ll have to backtrack to figure out how to get around
or unlock it. The streamlined format means there’s no objective marker and that these challenges are not spelled out. In the beginning, Aurora meets a little blue firefly that accompanies her through her journey. The bug is controlled with the right analog stick and can be used to see through the dark, reach hard to find objects and stun enemies, helping the princess avoid unwanted combat situations. Moving both Aurora and Firefly at the same time can be challenging, but this creates the opportunity for sections that will put your analog-stick chops to the test. Combat is the strongest deviation from the tried and true jump-on-their-heads melee typically found in side-scrolling adventure. The map is littered with enemies, but touching or coming into close proximity will trigger a turn-based combat event. These aren’t the same “Final Fantasy” turn-based fights you may be used to, however. At the bottom of the screen, there is a bar on which each of the participants is placed. Each character’s bubble slides across the meter at a speed in accordance with their stats. When their
bubble reaches a “casting” zone, they may select an attack and a target. Depending on the speed of the attack, the bubble will continue through the end of the field and be executed. Timing can be the difference between life and death. If Aurora can land an attack while an enemy is still casting, their sliding bubble is knocked back on the meter, essentially allowing fighters to “lap” each other or get in more attacks. The opposite also is true — enemies can knock you back. The whole system takes turn-based fighting beyond a tedious maze of menus and allows the player to feel like more of an active participant than a far-removed observer. This change adds more drama and realism to fighting and still allows for the complex strategic nuances that drive turn-based combat. All in all, “Child of Light” is a charming and well-executed game that combines time-tested methods into one elegant package. If you’re looking for a story, a fight or a journey through a beautiful and frightening landscape, this downloadable arcade title is worth the $14.99. RATING: HHHHI

Ball State alumnus runs for political office Music education major wants to improve schools, public policies if elected
EVIE LICHTENWALTER FEATURES EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Focusing on education and samesex marriage, a 23-year-old Ball State alumnus has begun his race to the Statehouse. Sean Shanley graduated from Ball State in Spring 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in music education and is the Democratic candidate for Indiana’s District 28. During his time at Ball State, Shanley was involved in concert choir, chamber choir and the Statesmen choir, but no political organizations.

Don Ester, a professor of music education, was one of Shanley’s main instructors during his time at Ball State and has known him since the first day of classes his freshman year. Although he is not surprised Shanley is running for office, he didn’t think it would be so soon. “He’s a very intelligent young man,” Ester said. “He’s very thoughtful and has a really good demeanor for public service. He’s someone that will really listen to different people’s ideas. In that sense, I think he has a skill set that I would consider to be important in public service.” Shanley ran unopposed in the 2014 primary elections and received 400 votes. He will run against Thompson in the Nov. 4 election.

Don and Barbara Irving put the land up for auction because of their failing health. “My parents need a break,” said Dave Irving, the owners’ son. “It’s kind of bittersweet.

Schrader Real Estate and Auction Co. auctioned off the 169-plus acre property in three parts for a total of $831,000. The remaining land was split into two sections. Tracts 3 and 4, totalling nearly 50 acres, sold to Don and Deanna Case for $141,000. Tracts 1, 5 and 6, which is more than 100 acres, sold to David and Sherry Berry for $610,000.

Pence to propose new 2-tier insurance idea Healthy Indiana Plan offers more options to low-income people | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS — Lowincome Indiana residents would have more healthinsurance options, including some with no cost, under a two-tiered plan Gov. Mike Pence plans to unveil on Thursday. The proposal is an attempt to win federal approval to continue insuring poor Indiana residents through the state-run Healthy Indiana Plan rather than by expand-

ing Medicaid. President Barack Obama’s health reform law called for expanding traditional Medicaid coverage to people earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level. The state has been talking with federal Health and Human Services officials about using Healthy Indiana as its vehicle for Medicaid expansion but has not received approval to do so beyond Dec. 31, when a one-year extension expires. Pence’s proposal appears to be an attempt to address some of the federal government’s concerns about HIP, including a requirement that recipients under the poverty line con-
tribute the first $1,100 of their care. Statehouse and health care leaders with direct knowledge of Pence’s new proposal told The Associated Press on Wednesday that participants enrolled in the first tier would receive very limited coverage at little or no cost. A higher level dubbed HIP Plus would include dental and vision coverage and require participants to pay in. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the proposal before it was announced. Pence’s new proposal has not yet been submitted to the federal government.
The Healthy Indiana Plan was launched in 2008 under former Gov. Mitch Daniels as a way to provide insurance to Indiana residents who did not qualify for traditional Medicaid but couldn’t afford private insurance. The program currently covers about 40,000 low-income Indiana adults. Those briefed on Pence’s proposal say participation could rise as high as 500,000 people if the federal government approves the plan. Department of Health and Human Services spokesman Fabien Levy noted that any expansion of Medicaid would be covered 100 percent by the federal government for

There is no way of tracking warnings given to violators of the policy, said Brenda Smith, secretary to the vice president for Student Affairs. Warnings are generally given when the officer tells the person “to stop or do it somewhere else.” Kay Bales, vice president for Student Affairs, said in a statement that the warnings are the university’s approach to remind people on campus of the policy. Underhill said he has broken this rule a few times and that the new policy isn’t effective. “All the times I’ve been stopped by a cop, he tells me to stop and gives me a warning,” he said. “In all honesty, I should have been given a ticket. The university isn’t making any money off of it, and it’s not being enforced.”
• If that happens, up to
500,000 people could join
new enrollees the first three years and then be scaled down to 90 percent of the cost after that. “We are encouraged by Indiana and Gov. Pence’s commitment to helping cover more of the state’s uninsured population ... and look forward to seeing his proposal,” Levy said.

GOOGLE TO PUT OUT ITS DIVERSITY DATA ABOUT WORKFORCE MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) — Google is planning to release statistics documenting the diversity of its workforce for the first time amid escalating pressure on the technology industry to hire more minorities and women. The numbers are compiled as part of a report that major U.S. employers must file with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Employers, though, aren’t required to make the information publicly available. Google Inc. had resisted calls for it to share the diversity data. The company announced its about-face Wednesday during its annual shareholders’ meeting after the Rev. Jesse Jackson, a longtime civil rights leader, urged Google to lead the effort to hire more minority and women in technology. Jackson applauded Google for its concession. Google Inc. says the information will be released sometime next month. The company employs nearly 50,000 people. –

FERNANDEZ: Federal, state legislation prevent student from aid, in-state tuition | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
LEGISLATION Fernandez said Ball State tried to work around the state and federal restrictions, but couldn’t. Indiana passed House Bill 1402 in 2011, a bill that prohibited resident tuition for anyone who is not living in the country legally. When the bill was passed, about 60 opponents protested outside of the Statehouse to ask former Gov. Mitch Daniels to veto it, according to the Indianapolis Star. Five people were arrested when they refused to leave the hallway outside of Daniels’ office until he spoke to them. Federal restrictions prevent Fernandez and her parents from applying for financial aid. In August 2012, the federal government passed legislation that would grant temporary citizenship to children that immigrated without legal permission. Fernandez participated in the Deferred Action program, but it does not affect college tuition or federal aid. She has a temporary license and social security and
legally works in the U.S. She’s far from the only student who is living in the nation without legal permission. Of the 3 million high school graduates each year, about 65,000 immigrated to the U.S. illegally, according to the DREAM Act, the bill that would create a path to citizenship for immigrants without legal permission already in the United States. Errington said Fernandez is the type of student that Indiana should encourage to continue education and work in the state. “She would be an asset to Ball State,” she said. “She thinks outside the box. She’s determined to go to Ball State, and she’s going to figure out a way to pay.” Errington said legislation was created in 2013 to provide a way for students in Fernandez’s situation to get in-state tuition. The legislation provided protections for students who were forced to drop out after the passage of 2011’s bill. However, the amendment to protect students like Fernandez was defeated.
GOFUNDME.COM KARLA FERNANDEZ
On April 12, Karla Fernandez started her GoFundMe page to help raise money for her tuition, which is approximately $33,070 for out-ofstate tuition, fees, room and board. Fernandez has lived in Indiana for 15 years, but is considered out of state without her citizenship. Raised: $14,413 Goal: $25,000 Donators: 149

Karla Fernandez has raised $14,413 through GoFundMe.com to help pay for her Ball State tuition, which is considered out of state because she is not a citizen. She has received donations from 149 people, including State Rep. Sue Errington.
“We had heard testimony from students who had to drop out,” Errington said. “These were students who were top students, who were begging to be able to go back to school.” Despite the legislative ob-
stacles, this challenge has highlighted Fernandez’s tenacity, said Dennis Goins, adviser of the school’s TV program, BDTV. “[Fernandez] is highly motivated and is very determined to succeed,” Goins said. “But I think
the most important trait that she possesses is her persistent attitude. She won’t take ‘no’ as an answer and she will not give up. ... I believe this has made Karla a better person.”
Fernandez said many of her teachers at Ben Davis have been her cheerleaders, helping to share her story and her GoFundMe page to raise money. Many of her past and current teachers have donated to her cause. “I haven’t really seen any negative response,” she said. “All I have received was posi-
tive response.” Those who support Fernandez overshadow the few people who have commented negatively on her page. On GoFundMe, 149 people have raised more than $14,000. This brings Fernandez more than halfway to her page’s goal of $25,000. Fernandez said she looks forward to attending Ball State as a telecommunications and international business administrations double major and is optimistic about getting to college. But she said her fight doesn’t stop once she has enough to pay for her costs. “There have been situations that if people speak up, their family can be sent back to their country [of origin],” she said. “I want a permanent change for not just one person, but for everyone. ... “It’s not equal for this to happen. It’s not about fairness; it’s about equality. If they’re going to double or triple the amount of money for someone who has been here for 15 years, that’s not equal.”
‘Grace of Monaco’ kicks off Cannes, SBARRO: Dining director says people ready for new pizza Kidman stars in film about royalty | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
Only female winner of Palme d’Or says industry is sexist | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CANNES, France — The Grace Kelly melodrama “Grace of Monaco” kicked off the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday with classic French Riviera glamour, behind-thescenes controversy and emphatic boos from critics. The film, starring Nicole Kidman as Kelly during her marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco, gave Cannes some local Cote d’Azur color and star wattage for a flashy opening. But it also started the 11-
day festival on an unusually tumultuous note. “Grace of Monaco” has for months been embroiled in a feud over the final edit with North American distributor the Weinstein Co. “There is only one version of the film,” Dahan said, adding that any changes would be made mutually. “There is no longer any dispute. We work well together.” It has also been criticized by the Monaco royal family as inaccurate. The film, which chronicles Kelly’s retirement from Hollywood and adjustment to life as a European princess, is a labeled as a “fictional account inspired by real events.” The festival jury, which decides the prestigious Palme
d’Or award, led by Jane Campion, was also introduced Wednesday. As the only female filmmaker to win the Palme, for “The Piano” in 1993, Campion faced questions that have often surrounded Cannes about the inclusion of women directors. “I think you’d have to say there’s inherent sexism in the industry,” Campion said. Of the some 1,800 films submitted to Festival Director Thierry Fremaux, Campion said 7 percent were directed by women, though 20 percent are represented in the program. “But nevertheless, it does feel very undemocratic,” said Campion, who added that movies are losing out on a feminine perspective. Last year, the Palme went to

‘GRACE OF MONACO’
Nicole Kidman’s film features her as Grace Kelly and depicts Kelly’s marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco. The Monaco royal family has criticized the film as inaccurate. Starring: Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth and André Penvern the erotic French coming-ofage tale “Blue Is the Warmest Color.” In a first, Steven Spielberg’s jury awarded the Palme not just to the director, Abdellatif Kechiche, but also to its two stars, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux. This year brings a selection of 18 films somewhat light on Hollywood, but heavy on world-class auteurs.
Jordan Hansel, a senior communications major, said he liked to eat at Sbarro, but he knows some people that really despised the restaurant. “Some people are like ‘I hate Sbarro, how can you eat there?’” he said. Jenna Wise, a senior nursing major, said she is excited to see a new pizza shop move in. She said in a perfect world, she would like to see Cousin Vinny’s or Greek’s Pizzeria take over the vacant space. Lewis said the university is looking to add a franchise into the Atrium, instead of renting out the space, which will allow university Dining employees to work at the new business. He said the space is currently being renovated with a new
front counter area and replacement ovens to accommodate a new business. “Our hope is to have a new pizza partnership by the time August rolls around and Fall Semester begins,” Lewis said. Boar’s Head Deli will offer personal-sized flatbread pizzas throughout the summer and also serve pasta entrees on select days to make up for Sbarro’s closing. Lewis said with so many pizza options, he feels like students are ready for a change. “Sbarro is not exactly something that many students would come across unless they spend a lot of time in airports or malls,” he said. “... So I think it was an interesting brand, but I think students are ready [for something different].”
