Local bar requests donations for system


Village venue creates Kickstarter, hopes to replace outdoor sound IAN PANTALE STAFF REPORTER | Local music venue and bar Be Here Now has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a new outdoor sound system. The fundraising campaign started April 24 and has $611 out of its $3,500 goal thanks to 29 backers so far. The campaign ends at 1 BY THE NUMBERS p.m. June 1 and will only receive funding if the goal Be Here Now is utilizing is raised. Be Here Now’s Kickstarter to raise Kickstarter offers incen- money for a new outdoor tives that range from Be sound system. Here Now merchandise and free shows to a free dinner with the owner have pledged since it and a private party at the started April 24 bar with Afroman. The decision for the venue to use Kickstarter has been raised and tap the community for help came after the winter. The page says re- is the goal of the cord low attendance and Kickstarter record high utility bills made an impact on Be Here Now’s finances. “Whitney [Lewis, the bar’s owner] hates asking for help, but he was willing to give this a try,” Neal Soley, a spokesperson for Be Here Now, said. “Be Here Now is a venue and a community and more than just the average bar. We want to keep that community open and even just give people a way to show they want us to stay around.” Local musician Wes “Hambone” Morgan has played with his band at Be Here Now for four years and said an upgrade to the equipment is necessary. He supports the bar’s decision to reach out for help through Kickstarter. “The support is voluntary,” he said. “The bar isn’t raising prices at the door or on drinks, and people who want to help can do so directly, this is really the best way. There is this sense of ‘part of the crew, part of the ship’ with Be Here Now’s community and if the bar needs help, they will want to help.” C.D. Tolbert, a local musician and audio student, has volunteered at the bar for 11 months and played music at Be Here Now since he came to Muncie three and a half years ago. “We’ve repaired the old sound system many times, and it’s gotten to the point where it’s more cost effective to just replace the system,” Tolbert said. “Be Here Now is the cultural hub of Muncie. ... If we go down, so does the music in Muncie.”

Ball State buys Hiatt Printing, moves forward with McKinley Commons

29 backers




Hiatt Printing on McKinley Avenue closed Friday after owner Chris Hiatt announced his plans to shut down the Village location. After two years of waiting and a dropped eminent domain case, Ball State secured the location and announced plans to move forward with McKinley Commons. CHRISTOPHER STEPHENS CHIEF REPORTER |



all State is moving forward with a 2-year-old plan after purchasing Hiatt Printing, following negotiations and a dropped eminent domain case. The university spent $450,000 to buy the last piece of property needed to build McKinley Commons, a four-story residence hall, hotel, conference area and restaurant space. The McKinley Commons project, originally announced in 2012, will function as a living-learning community for around 50 students as well as a fully functioning hotel. The building also will offer laboratory space for hospitality, food and event management students

McKinley Commons has been in the works since 2012. Here’s a timeline about the stages it has gone through:

“I don’t see anything other than good things for our students with the program,” said Sotiris Hji-Avgoustis, chairperson for the department of Family and Consumer Sciences. The university announced Friday that it purchased Hiatt Printing for $50,000 more than its original offer in 2012. The announcement came a few weeks after Chris Hiatt said he would shut down his Hiatt Printing location

Aug. 2, 2012 The Board of Trustees cancel a meeting to discuss acquisition of Hiatt Printing, as the project was at a standstill. A university spokesperson said the meeting was canceled because Ball State was currently in formal and informal negotiations with Hiatt.

April 23, 2012 The university gives a written $400,000 offer to Chris Hiatt, owner of Hiatt Printing, for his business located on 506 N. McKinley Ave. where McKinley Commons is proposed to be built. The offer was $25,000 more than a market estimate. April 25, 2012 Ball State announces the McKinley Commons project, a four-story residence hall, hotel, conference center and restaurant space. The building is expected to house beds for 50 students and 100 hotel rooms, replacing the university’s existing hotel in the L.A. Pittenger Student Center.

at 506 N. McKinley Ave., which closed Friday. Hiatt’s other location, at 1716 N. Wheeling Ave., will have longer hours and the T.I.S. College Bookstore in the Village will offer course materials from Hiatt Printing. “I’m glad we were able to come up with a resolution that works for my business and for the university,” Hiatt said in the press release.

Sept. 5, 2012 Ball State authorizes a plan to use eminent domain to obtain Hiatt Printing. Eminent domain allows government agencies to acquire property that will work to enhance the public good.

Newsome finding transition to NFL ‘comfortable’ Rookie gets 1st chance to impress his coaches, teammates at minicamp ANTHONY LOMBARDI SPORTS EDITOR | @Lombardi_Dial8

A former Ball State defensive end and new Indianapolis Colts’ linebacker Jonathan Newsome is ready to do anything to win over his new teammates. “Coming into the [NFL], I have to be able to prove myself,” Newsome said. “I have to earn the respect of these guys around here, so whatever I have to do, that’s what I’m going to do.” Newsome’s first opportunity to impress his new coaches and teammates came Saturday when he participated in the Colts’ three-day rookie minicamp.

TODAY 3. BOSNIA FLOODS TRIGGER MANY LANDSLIDES BRCKO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Floodwaters triggered more than 3,000 landslides across the Balkans on Sunday, laying waste to entire towns and villages and disturbing land mines leftover from the region’s 1990s war, along with warning signs that marked the unexploded weapons. The Balkans’ worst flooding forced tens of thousands of people from their homes and threatened to inundate Serbia’s main power plant.

DALLAS (AP) — AT&T Inc. on Sunday agreed to buy satellite TV provider DirecTV for $48.5 billion, or $95 per share, a move that gives the telecommunications company a larger base of video subscribers and increases its ability to compete against rivals. AT&T currently offers a high-speed Internet plan in a bundle with DirecTV television service. AT&T could use the deal to improve its Internet service by pushing its existing U-verse TV subscribers into DirecTV’s videoover-satellite service, freeing up bandwidth on its telecommunications network. “This ... [will] create a company able to offer new bundles and deliver content to consumers across multiple screens — mobile devices, TVs, laptops, cars and even airplanes,” AT&T’s Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson said. With 5.7 million U-verse TV customers and 20.3 million DirecTV customers in the U.S., the combined AT&T-DirecTV would serve 26 million. That would make it the secondlargest pay TV operator. AT&T and DirecTV expect the deal to close within 12 months.

Authorities organized a helicopter airlift to get terrified families to safety before the water swallowed up their homes. Many were plucked from rooftops. Floodwaters receded Sunday in some locations, laying bare the full scale of the damage. Elsewhere, emergency management officials warned that the water would keep rising into Sunday night. “The situation is catastrophic,” Adil Osmanovic, Bosnia’s refugee minister, said.

4. SPACEX DRAGON RETURNS HOME FROM SPACE CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The commercial cargo ship Dragon returned to Earth from the International Space Station on Sunday, bringing back nearly 2 tons of science experiments and old equipment for NASA. SpaceX’s Dragon splashed into the Pacific, five hours after leaving the lab. “Welcome home, Dragon,” the California-based company tweeted. After a one-month visit, the SpaceX cargo ship was set loose Sunday

morning. Astronaut Steven Swanson, the station commander, released it using the big robot arm. “Very nice to have a vehicle that can take your science, equipment and maybe someday even humans back to Earth,” Swanson told Mission Control. The SpaceX Dragon is the only supply ship capable of returning items to Earth. SpaceX is competing for the right to ferry station astronauts, perhaps as early as 2017.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry took a poke at the NBA’s controversy surrounding Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling during a speech at Yale University’s Class Day. Kerry joked about college and pop culture at the start of his speech Sunday. “You are ... the most diverse class in Yale history,” he said. “Or, as it’s called in the NBA, Donald Sterling’s worst nightmare.”

The study took into account base salary, bonuses, retirement, severance and deferred pay.

The comment drew laughs from the audience. The NBA commissioner has banned Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million following the release last month of a recording in which the Clippers’ owner makes racist remarks. The commissioner also called on owners to oust Sterling from the league. According to a speaker at Class Day, students from 61 countries are graduating from Yale this weekend.

After finishing its regular season schedule with a sweep of Northern Illinois on Saturday, the Ball State baseball team will head into the 2014 Mid-American Conference Tournament as the No. 1 seed. “It was a phenomenal regular season, no question,” head coach Rich Maloney said. “The way these guys contribute each day is what makes our team so special.” The Cardinals finished the season strong, winning eight of its final 10 games en route to a 38-16 record. In conference play, the team performed even better, going 22-4 while leading the MAC in many offensive categories including batting average with .287 and home runs with 43. If a deep tournament run is in the folds for the Cardinals, Maloney doesn’t believe it will take anything special from his squad. “It will be no different then it’s been all year,” he said. “Got to make the routine play, get the timely hit, throw strikes and don’t walk to many guys. If we just play like we have, we will have a good shot.”

Hoosier gets 500 pole win for 2nd year Carpenter posts speed of 231 mph for 4-lap average | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS — Local driver Ed Carpenter has made himself at home on the Indianapolis 500 pole. The last of nine qualifiers to take the track, Carpenter bumped James Hinchcliffe from the top spot, posting a four-lap average of 231.067 mph to win the 500 pole for the second straight year. “I felt that it was harder,” Carpenter said. “It was just a different position because when I made my run last year, we didn’t really have anything to lose. This year, being the last guy to go out, I think there was a little bit of pressure to not mess it up.” He didn’t mess it up, not at all. Carpenter’s No. 20 Chevrolet was the car to beat all weekend, and the hometown favorite showed no signs of rust in his first IndyCar Series race of the season. He owns Ed Carpenter Racing and decided in November to run only on ovals, where he excels. He turned his car over to Mike Conway on road and street courses, and skipped the first four races of the season. He knew he had the pole secured when he nailed the final two corners on the last lap. “I could really just kind of enjoy it knowing that we were going to be on the pole for the second year,” he said.

Hinchcliffe will start second after sustaining a concussion last weekend in the Grand Prix of Indianapolis. Will Power will join them on the front row. Three-time Indy 500 champion Helio Castroneves was fourth followed by Simon Pagenaud and Marco Andretti. Carlos Munoz, Josef Newgarden and J.R. Hildebrand will be on the third row. Carpenter, the stepson of former speedway executive Tony George, was 10th in last year’s Indy 500. He is 11th driver to earn consecutive 500 poles and the first since Castroneves in 2009-10. “It’s all about the race,” the 33-year-old Carpenter said. “Hopefully, we can close the deal this year.” As a single-car team last year, Carpenter was unable to get help on data and much-needed setup information. He didn’t want a repeat this May, so he hired Hildebrand to drive a second car at Indy for Ed Carpenter Racing. Hildebrand nearly won the Indy 500 as a rookie in 2011, but he crashed exiting the final turn and was passed for the win by the late Dan Wheldon. “I wish we could have got him up on the front row with us, but the shootout’s tough,” Carpenter said. “The conditions were hard today, but having him go first today also helped me because we were able to make an adjustment.” Montoya was followed by reigning series champion Scott Dixon and former NASCAR champion Kurt Busch.

Athletics fundraising campaign close to goal Committee will try to name new facility after volleyball coach

The minicamp finished Sunday, but Newsome said he will continue to study the team’s terminology as he readies himself for training camp and the start of the season. Though he has entered a new chapter in his life, Newsome said he will never forget where he JONATHAN came from and NEWSOME Former Ball remains thankState defensive ful for the op- end portunities Ball State football head coach Pete Lembo gave him. “[Lembo] definitely believed in me,” Newsome said. “He definitely saw the good in me even when I made mistakes, and he stuck with me. I appreciate him for that, and I’m going to keep putting on for Ball State and keep representing the program well.”

Though she did not attend Ball State, one Muncie resident is playing a major role in the university’s Cardinal Commitment campaign. Beth Lang’s sole tie to the university is women’s volleyball head coach Steve Shondell — her daughters played for him during their time at Muncie Burris High School. Around 1995, Lang became a Shondell fan and later made the jump to supporting Ball State’s volleyball teams. Now, she is part of a committee to name a new practice facility after former men’s volleyball head coach Don Shondell, who is Steve Shondell’s father. She continues to lead within the community of those who give back, and she acknowledged how difficult it can be. “It is possible, once you get in the work world, to give back,” Lang said. “But if I asked my kids, ‘Can you write a check for $500?’ They’re going to look at me and go,


‘Are you kidding me?’” Even $500 donations help Ball State move closer to the $20 million goal of the Cardinal Commitment campaign. So far, the university has raised roughly 85 percent of its goal, said Hudson Akin, vice president for university advancement. He said the campaign has reached its most intense portion. Instead of five- and sixfigure gifts that are more common during the private portion of the fundraising campaign, the bulk of donations are small gifts. The university announced the Cardinal Commitment campaign in April 2013, at which point it had raised more than 60 percent of its goal. Athletic Director Bill Scholl, who works with Akin and others to pull gifts from Ball State alumni and former studentathletes, said the smaller gifts require more time. “You’re now looking for multiple gifts at lower levels,” Scholl said. “They’re critical, very important and great signs of support, but are more time-intensive.” Prior to initiating the campaign in early 2011, Akin said more than $50 million in upgrades were highlighted. After hiring an outside company to complete a feasibility study, though, that number was seen

to be out of reach. After setting the fundraising goal of $20 million, the list of projects was narrowed down to those that were needed most and would generate the most interest among donors. A facility for men’s and women’s volleyball and basketball was one project with a need to be completed. “We knew there was great interest in a new practice facility that would take some of the pressure off Worthen Arena,” Akin said. “It’s the only playing surface we had, and it’s also the only practice facility we had.” For Lang’s group, they need

to raise half of the estimated $8 million costs associated with the new building in order to buy the naming rights for Don Shondell. The building is not fully funded at this point, but other projects have been completed. A new playing surface was finished at the Briner Sports Complex for the field hockey team last summer, in addition to the bathrooms built near the Ball State softball complex. Funding for a new football facility is complete, and construction is scheduled to begin in June. Both the softball and baseball facilities will be upgraded as part of the Cardinal

Commitment campaign, too. Akin said the original goal of raising $20 million was meant to be a stretch. He never believed the fundraiser would be a “slam dunk.” Raising the final $2 million to $3 million of the goal will be a process that requires more impersonal donations, Akin said. Early stages of the program required Akin to take part in face-to-face meetings with donors. The second half uses informational letters, phone calls and emails to reach out to donors who can contribute. “It’s harder to get in front of those people in California, but we’ve made calls to them,” Akin said. “And the people in Georgia, Florida or wherever they may be.”

PACERS TOP HEAT IN GAME 1 OF EASTERN FINALS Even attack leads to double-digit win over rival opponent | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana is done talking about homecourt advantage. The top-seeded Pacers are ready to use it against the twotime defending champs. The team took its first step Sunday, when Paul George fin-

ished with 24 points and seven assists, David West added 19 points and seven rebounds and suddenly surging Indiana led wire-to-wire in a 107-96 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. “This is just a fun matchup,” George said. “It’s one that we’ve been waiting for all year.” For the first time in this year’s playoffs, the Pacers won a series opener. And for the first time in the team’s

last three playoff battles against the Heat, the Pacers won Game 1. Game 2 is Tuesday night. The home team has won all five games in this season’s fiercest and most competitive rivalry, though none was more impressive or important than this one. All five Indiana starters and backup C.J. Watson scored in double figures, helping Indiana produce its highest point total of the playoffs. The Pacers limited the

Heat to just four offensive rebounds and 6-of-23 shooting from beyond the arc. LeBron James went one of five on threes and shot just two free throws, and Miami fell so far behind so fast, it never even had a chance to tie the score. The challengers in this matchup insist they know it’s only a start. “There’s nothing to celebrate,” Hill said. “It’s not like we won a championship. It’s one game.”

For most of her life, Emily Schebler hasn’t been away from her family for more than a few days. But in June, she will start her sixweek study in Wales as part of a Fulbright Summer Institute. The freshman political science and legal studies major received a place with Fulbright in April as Ball State’s only participant. Prior to college, Schebler didn’t know the Fulbright program existed. After learning about it in an honors course, she spoke to her parents about the Fulbright and decided to apply. “None of us thought we’d actually get it,” she said. “It was really great when we did.” Schebler began her application in December and submitted

Year in academic debate University handles intelligent design, redesigns reviewing



A little more than a year ago, Ball State became the center of a debate in higher education about academic freedom. The controversy surrounded an honors course taught by Eric Hedin called Boundaries of Science. Hedin was accused of intermingling his religious ideas, including intelligent design, in with accepted scientific teachings. President Jo Ann Gora later said the teaching of intelligent design, the idea that a creator shaped the universe, has no place in a science course. This statement didn’t bring an end to complaints against Ball State. Here is a look at the events that changed the course content and review process of the Ball State Honors College courses and set a precedent for the rest of the university.

MAY 15, 2013

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, an organization advocating for the separation of state and church, files a formal complaint against Hedin, an assistant professor. The complaint accused him of expressing religious beliefs in his Boundaries of Science course.

JUNE 2013

The university selects four professors, one from Indiana University and three from Ball State, to investigate Hedin’s course. The members are Gary Dodson, a professor of biology; Juli Eflin, a professor of philosophy; Richard Fluegeman Jr., a professor of geological sciences; and Catherine Pilachowski, a professor of astronomy at IU.

JUNE 12, 2013

Ball State hires astronomy assistant professor Guillermo Gonzalez, a senior fellow with intelligent design think tank Discovery Institute. Gonzalez previously taught at Iowa State University but left after he was denied tenure for reasons he said included his ties to intelligent design. Gonzalez released a statement saying he pledged not to discuss intelligent design in his classes.

JULY 31, 2013

Gora releases a statement saying intelligent design is a religious belief and not a scientific theory, and therefore should not be taught in a university course. She also argued against many critics who call the teaching of a creator is academic freedom. The panel investigating Hedin allowed him to continue to teach if he adjusts his course’s content.

State’s methods when investigating his class. The Discovery Institute criticized the university, saying the methods were inconsistent with a similar case — George Wolfe, a music professor, who was accused of pushing his political ideas into his class in 2004.

SEPT. 10, 2013

Gora receives a letter from the Discovery Institute. The letter demanded the university investigate four classes, focusing on Paul Ranieri, an associate professor of English. The institute said Ranieri’s HON 390 class Dangerous Ideas, which uses “What is Your Dangerous Idea?” as its textbook, teaches a one-sided view of religion, including a section that declares “Science must destroy religion.” The other classes criticized are assistant English professor Brent Blackwell’s HON 296 “Old” and “New” Science, associate biology professor Ann Blakey’s HON 297 The SustainABLES: Air, Biodiversity, Land, Energy, & the Seas [Water] and assistant biology professor James Olesen’s HON 298 The Biology of Life.


Fall Semester begins and Hedin starts teaching with a full course load, although some people complain about Ball

Ball State announces a new, formal review policy for all Honors College courses. The process will investigate teaching style, teacher’s qualifications and course material. Current honors classes will be reviewed and all new classes will be evaluated a semester before they begin.

“Since the students call me JoGo, I’m hoping that the center becomes known as the ‘JoGo Center’ — and that has already appeared on Twitter,” she said at the Fort Wayne, Ind., event. Gora is on a three-stop tour to connect with alumni and others. So far, she has stopped in Fort Wayne and in Chicago. Zach Perlinski, a 2011 telecommunications alumnus, said in Chicago that he met Gora at the Freshman Convocation

and decided to take up her free lunch offer for freshmen. “She is someone who has been front and center in my career at Ball State,” he said. “This is another chance to connect with her before she leaves Ball State.” At the Chicago event, Gora told a story about when she climbed on the rec center’s rock wall at Ball State. At the time, she had challenged the members of her cabinet to climb and only the female members showed up to

AUG. 19, 2013

March 10, 2014

Four conservative lawmakers, led by Senate Education Committee Chairman Dennis Kruse, send a letter to Gora to question the university’s decision to prohibit the teaching of intelligent design. The letter said Gora’s statement against intelligent design raised questions about whether Ball State had violated Hedin’s religious and academic freedoms. Other signers of the letter include Sens. Travis Holdman of Markle and Greg Walker of Columbus and Rep. Jeff Thompson of Lizton.

MARCH 18, 2014

Gora replies to the legislators’ letter to ask Kruse, Holdman, Walker and Thompson to meet with the university in person to discuss the disagreement involving academic freedom. Later, the legislators agreed to meet on Ball State’s campus with Gora.

APRIL 3, 2014

Kruse, Walker and Holdman meet with Gora. The legislators later released a statement calling the meeting productive, saying it offered an opportunity to discuss academic freedom and receive input from university officials.

MAY 2014

Hedin is among 19 assistant professors to be promoted to associate professor by the Board of Trustees. Hedin said he was thankful the university confirmed that he is a valued faculty member.

the competition. She said one of the younger members won. With her retirement, Gora said some of the first things she will do is sleep late, read The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, read a mystery book and go to the beach. “I am looking forward to having a little vacation time, and then I’ll see what else looks interesting to do,” Gora said. Her last stop is Wednesday in Fishers, Ind.

learn how to be an independent,” she said. “I had to become an adult instead of teenager.” She picked this particular program from Fulbright because of her interest in politics and globalization. She said she looks forward to seeing how accurate information she learned in a Ball State globalization class is as well as how Welsh politics work. “You take an American politics course and don’t get to see how it

works in another country,” Schebler said. She doesn’t know what she is going to do in her free time just yet, but she does have a few things in mind. “I have been talking with my cohorts to go to London one day,” Schebler said. “... I just want to experience the culture the most I can.” She also plans to look at historical landmarks, including the National Assembly for Wales. “As a political science nerd, I am very excited for that,” Schebler said. Her interest in politics extends past her major and her activities with Fulbright. At Ball State, Schebler serves as the secretary for the Mock Trial Association and is a member of the College Republicans, the Student Honors Council and the DeHority Hall Council. She plans to attend law school after graduating. Schebler will depart June 20 and will return in early August.

HIATT: McKinley Commons to be ‘anchor’ in Village | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Tony Proudfoot, a university spokesperson, said the university will try to stick as close as possible to the original plan for McKinley Commons. However, exact costs and a timetable are currently unavailable. “We are certain we want to get started as soon as we can,” he said. In 2012, McKinley Commons was estimated to cost $25.9 million and would be paid for through tax-exempt revenue bonds. At the time, President Jo Ann Gora said the facility would be considered an auxiliary operation, making it not require capital funding from the state or student tuition. The university’s other auxiliary campus operations include John R. Emens Auditorium and residence halls, which operate off their own revenue. Hji-Avgoustis said he thinks McKinley Commons will offer students the chance to practice in a real world environment. “My feeling is that it will be welcome news for our students,” he said. “Parents and prospective students, as well, will see that it is a step forward.” He said because he wasn’t at Ball State in 2012 when the project was announced, he is looking forward to learning the details of the project and working with the university to finalize them. Proudfoot said the L.A. Pittenger Student Center hotel will continue to operate for the foreseeable future, though McKinley Commons will eventually replace it. The building will offer 100 rooms and possibly two restaurants and several small meeting areas, according to a press release. “McKinley Commons is important in so many ways,” Gora said in a press release. “... McKinley Commons will be a strong anchor in the Village. I couldn’t be more pleased to have it moving forward.” The project was put on hold after Hiatt declined Ball State’s offer for him to sell the property. Ball State offered him $400,000 for the property in


March 2013 Delaware County Circuit Court 5 rules against Hiatt Printing in the eminent domain case. Hiatt said he planned to appeal the case to protect his four decades of business. June 6, 2013 Ball State drops the eminent domain case after a court ordered appraisal of $375,000 was offered for Hiatt Printing, but Hiatt requested $1.3 million. A university spokesperson said the gap could not be reconciled. April 26, 2014 Hiatt announces plans to close his McKinley Avenue location in an email to university customers. FRIDAY Ball State announces plans to move forward with the McKinley Commons project after purchasing the Hiatt Printing location for $450,000. Hiatt Printing on McKinley Avenue closes.

April 2012, which was $25,000 more than its appraised value. Hiatt asked $1.3 million for the land in 2013. After failing to purchase the property, Ball State tried to obtain it through eminent domain, which is a governmental power to take private property and convert it to public use, according to The university dropped the case in June 2013. Hiatt contested the case, not only working to keep his business but also fighting the university’s right to privilege itself to property. He said in June 2013 that he planned to use his experience to work with legislators to change eminent domain law. “Ball State, as any other subsidized university, shouldn’t have the capacity to condemn and seize private property,” Hiatt said at the time. “There’s a defect in Indiana that needs to be addressed. I hope this experience shows why the law needs to be changed.”

MUNCIE CRAFT FAIR OUTLET FOR MANY CREATIVE HOBBIES Heekin Park hosts local artists selling art, beauty products JORDAN HUFFER STAFF REPORTER | A variety of artists sold their goods to the Muncie community Saturday at Heekin Park. When crafter and Muncie resident Eugene Boyd retired in 2011 from General Motors, he was looking for something to do. He decided to sign up for a ceramics class at Cornerstone Center for the Arts in downtown Muncie and said he was instantly hooked. “I started totally ignorant,” he said, standing next to a table filled with his crafts, all of which were created on a potter’s wheel. “My first bowl that I made ... my instructor said it would make a good doorstop.” Boyd valued the classes he

took at Cornerstone, saying it’s a place to try many things without spending a lot of money. “You don’t wanna invest in all the things, so you can go there and they can give you a start,” he said. For Ashley Lambert of Eaton, Ind., Minnetrista helped her become more interested in plants. In 2010, she picked up a calendula as part of Minnetrista’s Plant of the Week. Now, she owns and operates a small business where she makes allnatural beauty products. She sells these at craft shows as well as on Etsy. Lambert found challenges in creating her products, including the basics of her craft. “I had to find a base recipe, then make up my own,” she said. “I’m still perfecting it. But it was a good couple of years before I felt comfortable with coming out with new products.” She advocates for crafters to be

1200 N. Minnetrista Parkway educated in what they’re making. This includes the creative side and the business side. “If you don’t know what you’re working with, then you’re not going to make a good product,” she said. “You’re not going to know what to tell [your customers] what is good or bad for them.” Creating handmade items is a way to give back to the community — Boyd now volunteers at Cornerstone to teach people about the art that he has come to love.

Large, dark rooms full of the smell of popcorn and the sounds of the newest blockbusters is what summer means to me. And if this summer is anything like last year, then I’m definitely in for a treat. I’m looking forward to quite a few films this season, but here’s a list of the top five.


Release: June 13 Studio: DreamWorks Animation Rating: PG Starring: Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler and Cate Blanchett This sequel to the 2010 Dreamworks film “How to Train Your Dragon” is almost here. In the first film, we were introduced to Hiccup, voiced by Jay Baruchel. Hiccup is a Viking boy, CHERCABULASMINDBOX.COM who is often bullied, and befriends a dragon — Toothless. When the people of his town are threatened, he and his dragon sidekick are the only ones who can save the day. The second film will follow Hiccup and Toothless five years later as they travel outside of their town of Berk to explore new lands. Cate Blanchett joins the cast as Hiccup’s estranged mother who, similar to Hiccup, is able to connect with dragons in a way others cannot understand. It was surprising that the first full-length trailer for the movie dropped the enormous spoiler of Hiccup’s mom being alive. She was originally introduced as a “mysterious dragon rider,” but her identity was immediately given away in the trailer.


The Daily News forum page aims to stimulate discussion in the Ball State community. The Daily News welcomes reader viewpoints and offers three vehicles of expression for reader opinions: letters to the editor,

After finding his mother, Hiccup and Toothless become wrapped up in a larger feud between humans and dragons. Just like the first film, they work to bridge the gap and bring peace. In an interview with Slash Film, Baruchel said the second movie is going to “smoke the first movie.” “How to Train Your Dragon” is my favorite animated movie of all time, so I find this hard to believe. But if he’s right, then we are in for an incredible journey.


Release: July 11 Director: Richard Linklater Rating: R Starring: Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Lorelei Linklater

“Boyhood” is a movie I’m interested in seeing CINEMASALEM.COM solely because of how it was filmed. Director Richard Linklater, best known for his work with the “Before” trilogy starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, began filming this movie in 2002 and just finished in October 2013. It follows Mason Jr., played by Ellar Coltrane, from his youth to when he becomes an adult. Since the filmmaking actually followed Coltrane’s growth from when he was 6, we get to watch him transform in a way that film has not done before. Last summer, three very similar coming-of-age movies came out — “Mud,” “The Kings of Summer” and “The Way Way Back.” While all three of these films were great in their own way, the movies all surrounded boys with troubling family situations, who rebel in some way and through whatever trials they faced, they became men. I’m ready for something new for a change and from what I can tell, “Boyhood” is going to deliver just that.

3. “THE FAULT IN OUR STARS” Release: June 6 Director: Josh Boone Rating: PG-13 Starring: Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort

I typically stick to watching films instead of reading the books that inspired them. However, “The Fault in Our Stars” is one I’m glad I read. John Green’s youngadult fiction tells the story of Hazel Grace Lancaster, ALICEMARVELS.COM a 16-year-old with Stage 4 thyroid cancer. At the request of her mother, she goes to a cancer support group. She is unaware, however, that this is where she’ll meet Augustus Waters, a 17-year-old former basketball player and amputee who will change her life forever. Shailene Woodley is a rising actress, starring most recently in “Divergent” with co-star Ansel Elgort. I’m glad that the two chosen for these roles have previously worked together, which should help their on-screen chemistry. “The Fault in our Stars” is a beautiful, heartbreaking story about love and loss, and it may be a little masochistic to be excited about the film. I get pretty emotional at movies already, so this one is bound to be a sob-fest from start to finish.


Release: July 25 Director: Zach Braff Rating: TBA Starring: Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Josh Gad, Mandy Patinkin and Jim Parsons

In April 2013, Zach Braff launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise the $2 million it would take to fund his movie. After the success of his 2004 indie “Garden State,” it was his intention to make this movie exactly the way he wanted.

Release: Aug. 1 Director: James Gunn Rating: TBA Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel

“Guardians of the Galaxy” is the next film in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and features Chris Pratt as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord on a journey to save the universe. To do this, he will need to join forces with FLICKTV1.BLOGSPOT.COM Dave Bautista’s Drax the Destroyer, Zoe Saldana’s Gamora Saldana, Bradley Cooper’s Rocket Raccoon and Vin Diesel’s Groot. I don’t know anything about the original stories of the Guardians, so I have no expectations of what the movie should include. I’m simply looking forward to seeing this ensemble cast in some good action scenes.

After a few days, he had raised the money. By the time the Kickstarter campaign was over, he had raised $3,105,473, making it a movie for the fans and by the fans. The film follows Braff’s Aidan Bloom, a husband and father of two, on his journey to find himself. Overall, the film looks to be both heartwarming and inspiring while maintaining a level of humor. It’s hard to tell anything FILMDROID.HU from the trailer except that the movie is going to be very pretty, but I trust Braff to deliver a fine picture.

CANNES FESTIVAL SEES ‘BRING BACK OUR GIRLS,’ PARTY SIMILAR TO PANEM CANNES, France (AP) — The Associated Press is all over the Cannes Film Festival — from its glitzy premieres to the celeb parties and quirky moments in between. Here’s some of what reporters have seen and heard. ‘EXPENDABLES’ BOOST NIGERIAN GIRLS The “Bring Back Our Girls” message has made its way to the Cannes red carpet for the second night in a row. This time, it was the cast of “The Expendables 3” — which includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Jason Statham and Wesley Snipes — who each held up signs bearing the message. The phrase refers to the worldwide effort to bring home more than 250 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by the extremist Islamic group Boko Haram a month ago. Despite a multinational effort, they have yet to be recovered. “The Expendables 3” is not an official selection at Cannes, but its stars have made the most of their Cannes visit — arriving on the Riviera on Saturday morning in tanks. A PARTY FIT FOR THE CAPITOL It was like a night in Panem as the already lavish Hotel du CapEden-Roc was transformed into an extravagant party that mimicked those thrown in the fictional capitol of the “Hunger Games” series. Saturday night’s event was to promote the future release of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1,” the second-to-last installment of the blockbuster apocalyptic series. Stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Julianne Moore and Donald Sutherland were among those who attended the event.
