Home invasion gone wrong By Casey Premoshis Staff Writer

Photo by: Caitlin Birmingham Shoots rang out in the 100 block of California Road in California Borough. One person was injured during the home invasion gone wrong.

Tuesday morning, Carey Davis of California Borough was shot twice in a home invasion. Davis, 22, lives less than a mile from Vulcan Village on California Road. Due to the proximity of the incident to Vulcan Village, a crime alert was issued to all students at 8:30 a.m., stating that there were two “African-American” male suspects. There is little information available on the suspects. University spokeswoman Christine Kindl said in a statement that there were “extra police patrols” at Vulcan Village, and University Police were assisting in the borough’s investigation. According to the police report, Davis said he was awoken by his barking dog and then saw two black males inside of the house. After grabbing a firearm and chasing the suspects out of the house, he continued to chase them up the road when one

subject reportedly fired on him. When police arrived, paramedics were treating two gunshot wounds which were nonlife threatening. One bullet struck Davis in the left arm, and another struck him in the buttocks. The Pennsylvania State Police helped in processing the crime scene for forensic evidence, during which they found a bag of what was believed to be marijuana. Borough police were later granted a search warrant for the property, where they found “approximately two pounds of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and a large amount of cash.” However, the report does not state whether the homeinvasion was related to the drugs, or if there was a separate reason for the break-in.

Human trafficking panel PAGE 2

By Lisa Pfaff Staff Writer

Human trafficking is a crime against humanity and can be defined as modern day slavery. Different forms of trafficking involve receiving a person through coercion, force, fraud, and other means for the purpose of exploitation. Human trafficking is one of the most profitable organized crime industries in the world. Some sources estimate annual profits of around US $32 billion in the trafficking industry, making it the world’s largest illegal market. Roughly 600,000-800,000 humans are being trafficked internationally, seventy percent of the victims are women, fifty percent are children, and 12.3 million people are enslaved around the world as you sit and read this article. On Sept. 22, Bo and Hollie Renes spoke at an open forum regarding human sex trafficking, for California University students, faculty, and commu-

nity members. The husband and wife currently work for a Non-Government Organization (NGO), in a small village outside of Mumbai, India, near the Pakistan border. They work to aid woman and young girls who are at risk of becoming sex trafficking victims, and those that have already become victims of the industry. In regions around Mumbai it is common for families to sell their daughters into prostitution for around US $1000-$1500. On an average Sunday in Mumbai, around 200,000 men will visit these prostitutes, and each girl might average as many as fifteen customers in one day. Bo and Hollie are currently working to find a solution to cut down on sex trafficking in the village they work in. Due to the cast system in India, it is extremely difficult for NGO’s to operate. It is believed that lower-class women are the scum of society, and the higher cast population will abuse and rape women in the lower cast. “It

comes to a point that you feel like you don’t have emotions anymore,” Hollie said. Bo and Hollie are currently working to raise funds for a new center in their village, which they plan to use for education and medical purposes. Their organization teaches women how to make handbags and jewelry that can be sold for added family income and teaches men how to speak English and work with their hands so they can be more readily employed. The work that Bo and Hollie are doing is only the tip of the iceberg. In many instances young women are coerced away from their families, in countries such as Nepal, by professional sex traffickers. Employers will promise daughters in poverty stricken families good, decent paying jobs, but secretly the employer has extremely bad intentions. The daughter will then be sold into sex slavery, but due to her culture she will be too embarrassed to call her family or ask someone for help. She will

Cal U students able to “Think Fast” By Noah Gruskin

For the Cal Times Think fast is a game show in which an entire audience competes for a chance to win a cash prize. Questions consist of popculture and general knowledge inquiries spanning from “what is the name of Lady Gaga’s first album” to “Who won the Heisman trophy last year?” As you enter the area in which the game show is hosted, in this case the Natali Performance center, you receive a remote that gives you a team name and a potential ticket to a cash prize. There is a DJ on stage, with two large screens on either side of said stage, which show the question and the answers to choose from. The faster you answer the question, the more points you get. As time passes hints appear next to the answers that are incorrect. Each question lasts for thirty seconds at the most requiring one to “Think Fast.” Whoever scores the highest in the initial trivia rounds, goes up on stage to stand at a podium and compete against three others in a jeopardy style

trivia round. The three highest three scorers get spots on stage as well as the winner of the “wild card round.” The wildcard round consists of a competition judged by the rest of the audience. The wild card rounds featured in Cal U’s competition were a singing competition and a dance competition, both judged by the amount of applause the participants receive from the audience. There were two of each of the sets (initial trivia, wild card, then jeopardy style) in which the winner of the final round on stage won two hundred dollars cash. The winner of the first round on stage was automatically placed in the second stage round. In second podium stage, the winner of the first set takes a place on the stand, as well as both wildcard winners. The winners of the trivia rounds have room to get questions wrong while the winners of the wildcard rounds get kicked off stage after getting one wrong and are replaced with the runners up from their respective wildcard round. The first person

to earn a thousand points (100 for each correct answer with no points subtracted for incorrect answers) wins the prize. In the final round of Think Fast at Cal U, Drew Sivins took the prize after beating out his opposition by two hundred points. Drew claimed his two hundred dollars for a third consecutive year dubbing himself the champion of trivia.

feel ashamed of what she has done and have nowhere to turn, and it will be as if she is trapped in a cage with no escape. Occurrences of sex trafficking are becoming more and more prevalent around the globe. During my travels to Thailand and Cambodia, last December – January, I was able to gain a better understanding of how widespread the human trafficking industry is throughout the world. In every city I traveled to, there were vast numbers of vulnerable street children, orphans, and poor families. A young child is an easy target for a trafficking predator; children are young, afraid, and easily manipulated. It is difficult to understand that such things exist in our world, for these types of atrocities are not so common in our American society. As citizens of our ever-changing world, we need to become educated on global, humanitarian issues including human trafficking. By becoming educated people can begin to make a dif-

ference in society. Thousands of men and women are being trafficked annually into the United States for sexual and labor exploitation. In their presentation, Bo and Hollie stated that the Super-bowl is the biggest event in the United States that brings in trafficked women, a demand which is fueling the worldwide epidemic. Americans need to think about how they might be contributing to such problems as they go about their daily lives. “If you can change a child, you will change a nation,” Bo said during his presentation, and I believe in that mind-set whole heartedly. As you go throughout your lives, I challenge you, the reader, to take a stand against human trafficking and the injustices occurring in our world today. The first step is to become educated about the world around you by making strides through personal learning and education, and eventual choices and actions.

At the beginning of the month, Porky’s Pub was the location of another shooting that had a non-fatal injury, and last Thursday a shooting intown occurred with no injuries resulting. This all follows the Sept. 8

guilty plea of Edward Jones to third-degree murder charges related to the shooting death of Jeron Grayson at a homecoming party last October. Grayson was a student at another university and was visiting friends when Jones fired shots, resulting in Grayson’s death, with two California University students receiving minor injuries. Anyone who has information relating to this or other crimes should contact California Borough Police at 724-938-3233.

A “Fair” to remember By Tyler Kimmel For the Cal Times

The club and organization fair is more important than people may think. A resume is something that everyone has to fill out. A college degree is one o the first things listed. What separates one resume from another is the activities that person has participated in. On Sept. 22, the performance center in Natali was packed with over 100 clubs available for students. The focus was on freshman, who had to talk to three different clubs and get signatures from them. The purpose was to allow freshman to explore organizations they may be interested in. Clubs advertised themselves to students to help get more members. Colorful posters, stickers, lollipops, and cookies were all some of the free stuff available. Students were also encouraged to look up clubs on twitter and facebook to learn more information. There was a fencing display

on the performance stage. There were swords and shields flying through the air. The games club had Guitar Hero for students to get to participate in and have some fun with. To say the performance center was crowded would be an understatement. There were never ending rows of tables. The aisles were more crowded than Wal Mart on Black Friday. Students couldn’t walk to the tables without bumping into someone else. The clubs and organizations fair was a success once again. Freshmen were exposed to tons of extracurricular activities they can add to their resumes. Upper class men got another chance to get involved in something they may have missed out on their first few years on campus. Clubs were able to add more members to help continue to build their foundations. It was a win-win situation for everyone.

Kawehi Performs By Diane Cywinski For the Cal Times

The Underground Café hosted Kawehi on Sept. 22. Her music filled the student union while students enjoyed free coffee and non-alcoholic mixed drinks for the Lau theme. Kawehi performed songs from her first full-length album, “Songs From My Apartment”. She surprised the audience with a few covers including “Baby Got Back” and “Billie Jean”. Her down to earth persona and enthusiastic attitude had the audience fully engaged during the entire performance. Kawehi spent the afternoon in the studio recording the hook to “Lonely Road,” for California University’s own Daeshawn Ballard, Rich Baur, and Scott Spindler. Kawehi was born and raised in Hawaii and currently resides in Los Angeles. She is an acoustic singer/songwriter who started her musical journey at the age of five when she started learning piano. Eventually she got tired of lugging around her heavy keyboard, and about four years ago she decided it was time to start playing the guitar. Kawehi takes her guitar everywhere now and enjoys writing in a different style. “You have to change instruments, to change your musical style,” Kawehi said. Her musical inspiration stems from other artists including The

Beatles, Shawn Colvin, and Ingrid Michaelson. Kawehi’s favorite thing to write about in her songs is food, but like many other artists she writes about relationships, “…I try to steer away from the typical relationship song but I eventually always find my way back,” Kawehi said. Kawehi has been on tour all along the east coast and has spent the past month performing at colleges and festivals throughout Pennsylvania. She enjoys meeting new artists and kids along the way that share the same passion for music. Kawehi enjoyed performing at California University. “I love the kids and the whole idea of putting on an open microphone every week. It’s refreshing because I don’t come across many schools that do this for their students. I’ve heard many different genres played here tonight and the students were all very supportive of one another,” Kawehi said. Kawehi’s new album is set to come out in March of 2012. If you want to listen to Kawehi’s music, watch her videos, or read her blog, you can check out for all of her links.

VulcanNowTheater Weekend Show: Super 8 showing Friday and Saturday at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.

By Justin Carlo

Cal Times Film Critic

Justin’s Rating: 4 1/2 stars “Super 8” has the feel of an early Spielberg classic with its young heroes and intense mystery. The big difference between “Super 8” and the classics such as “The Goonies” and “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” is the advancement in special effects since those classics were made. With J.J. Abrams in the director’s chair and Steven Spielberg producing, there was no way the movie was not going to be one of the summers biggest hits. With the movie’s youthful feel that brings you back, possibly way back, to your days of traveling only by bicycle, sneaking out at midnight, and communicating via walkie-talkie; the stage is set for the young characters to tackle an adult-sized problem. Set right at the start of summer in the 1970’s we see our young hero Joe Lamb (Joel Courtney) trying to forget the recent death of his mother by helping his boisterous friend Charles (Riley Griffiths) make a 8mm movie about zombies. Joe’s dad and Deputy Sheriff Jackson Lamb (Kyle Chandler) does not approve of his son playing with cameras and movie makeup, so of course all of the production must be done in secret, and doing it this way just seems like more fun for the kids. Along for the ride is their misfit group of friends and the pretty, slightly older Alice (Elle Fanning) who agrees to play a game changing role in Charles’ movie and also to be the one that drives them around. At just around midnight the group goes to a local train station to shoot a pivotal scene in the movie, and when a real train starts to come down the

tracks the kids go into a panic to get the shot while it’s there to up the production value. As the train flies past, Joe notices a truck coming down the tracks towards the train and screams to warn everyone right as the two vehicles collide starting off an intense and long combina-

tion of exploding and soaring train cars. These are some lucky 13-year-olds, barely getting a cut or scrape from all of the flying metal and strange cargo. The kids swear silence to one another about being at the scene of the accident but soon discover how strange of an

accident it really was. Bizarre things start to happen to people and things throughout the small Ohio town, but I wouldn’t dare reveal what those happenings are. Some of the best parts of the movie include the interestingly little amount of detail that is given up until the end. Even during the promotional months before the film’s release, hardly any information was revealed disclosing what the film was actually about. Even the trailer left the audience with a lot to assume. This suspense is what makes the film so anticipating and exciting when you finally see what is going on after that train crash. Abrams does an exceptional job with the young cast. The almost unknown ensemble of Joe, Charles, Alice, and their friends do a remarkable job in such an intense film. Elle Fanning especially brings it all out with her emotional performance that even the cast of young boys notice. The goofy friends continually bring excellent comic relief, especially the smart-mouthed pyromaniac Cary (Ryan Lee), who in one of my favorite lines of the movie, has a barely audible shout-out to my hometown “fireworks capitol of the world” New Castle, Pa. “Super 8” delivers a feel good movie side by side with an amazing action flick. The movie holds strong with a solid cast of well known stars and up-andcoming young actors that you are bound to see more of in the future. Abrams uses a great old fashioned style of filmmaking that brings back the heart to the story and does not dilute it with special effects and explosions. And to share a little secret with you, stay for the credits.

Soccer teams dominate East Stroudsburg: Women’s soccer posts 5-0 victory

By Joshua Laska

Sports/Managing Editor The No. 3 California University of Pennsylvania women’s team battled to a 1-1 double overtime tie at West Chester on Sept. 21. But came back the next game and beat East Stroudsburg 5-0 on Sept. 24 for Family Day and the dedication of the Cal U soccer complex. The Vulcans are now 5-0-1 on the season and 3-0-1 in PSAC play. The Vulcans did have their opportunities to score posting ten shots on goal. Junior forward Carley Work led the team with four shots on goal. However, it took until the 63rd minute when junior midfielder Kayla Fransko scored her first goal of the season to give the Vulcans a 1-0 lead. With less than five minutes left in regulation the Golden Rams of West Chester evened the score to force overtime. Senior goalkeeper Paula Jackson tied her career high of eight saves in the tie. This marks the first tie the Vulcans have posted since a 1-1 tie to West Chester last Nov. in the Third Round of the NCAA Tournament. After East Stroudsburg’s goalie was ejected, in the 32nd minute, for receiving a red card after taking out senior forward Breeanna Robinson the Vulcans did not look back. Robinson made sure to get her revenge and buried a shot in the back of the net in the 33rd minute off of

Norbuts. The Vulcans took a 4-0 lead in the 67th minute when freshman forward Chelsea Crockett registered her second goal of the season off of assist from senior defensive back Kayla Klimasko. Work scored her third goal of the game to complete her second

hat trick of the season, off of a feed from senior forward Jodi McDonald. Cal U out shot ESU 30-5 and attempted an impressive 24 shots in the second half. The Vulcans returned to action on Sept. 28 when they took on Gannon, but that game

ended to late for press time. The Vulcans travel to Mercyhurst tomorrow to take on the Lakers at 4 p.m. Look for a recap of both games in next weeks Cal Times.

Hispanic Student Association By: Angelina Lorenzo

SPANISH PHRASE OF THE WEEK: Quisiera la sopa de pollo, por favor. (I would like the chicken soup please.) The Hispanic Student Association has been busy this month planning our big trip, planning a Salsa Night for the campus, working on fundraisers, and figuring out how to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic Heritage Month takes place starting on September 15th and ends on October 15th. It is a time when our nation celebrates the Hispanic culture and how it is a big part of our country todayexactly what HSA stands for! As college students, one way we can celebrate the Hispanic culture is through delicious food. HSA has explored many Hispanic restaurants over the years and found that there are many good choices in the surrounding area of California and even more in Pittsburgh. One of my personal favorites is a Nicaraguan restaurant we found last semester in Pittsburgh called Rivas. The prices were really good and they gave us so much food! So grab some friends and take a road trip to a Hispanic Restaurant this month. Use the SPANISH PHRASE OF THE WEEK to order in Spanish. Come to HSA meetings every Thursday in the Carter Hall Multi Cultural Center at 11 a.m. Email Angelina Lorenzo to get on our email list.

Mayo/Lalich combination leads to another victory By Daniel Williamson For the Cal Times

The weather couldn’t have been better for Family Weekend football versus Clarion. A good turnout of students, family, and fans watched the California University of Pennsylvania Vulcan football team take on the Clarion Golden Eagles on Sept. 24. The game started slowly with a scoreless first quarter as the competitors gauged each other. From there, the Vulcans took off and didn’t let up. Midway through the second quarter, the Vulcans broke the tie fighting for a 95-yard drive finishing with a passing touchdown from junior quarterback Peter Lalich to senior wide receiver Chedrick Cherry. On the next drive, senior defensive lineman Steve Santia forced a fumble, scooping up the ball and returning it 35 yards for a touchdown. With 1:10 remaining, Lalich found wide receiver Thomas Mayo for a 56-yard touchdown, stretching the Vulcans’ lead to 20-0 before the half. Just after halftime, the teams traded rushing touchdowns. Freshman Jeff Knox scored the 1-yard touchdown for Cal U. With the Golden Eagles miss-

ing their point-after attempt, the score read 27-6. Early in the fourth quarter, Knox scored another 1-yard touchdown as the Vulcans stretched their lead to 34-6. On the next drive, freshman defensive back Stephon Burnam made his first career interception. The Vulcans converted the turnover into points when Lalich found Mayo for a 68-yard touchdown. Clarion would score one more touchdown before the game ended, making the final score 40-13. Peter Lalich went 23 of 32 with 350 passing yards for his second straight 300-yard game. He threw three touchdowns and one interception. For the second straight week, Lalich was named the PSAC West Offensive Player of the Week. Thomas Mayo entered the game ranked second in receiving yards in the NCAA Division II. Mayo had seven receptions for 164 yards and two touchdowns. This was Mayo’s third consecutive 100yard game. The Vulcans (3-1) will return to action tomorrow at Lock Haven (0-3). Cal U beat Lock Haven last year at Adamson Stadium, 58-0, their 7th straight victory over the Bald Eagles.

Get to know your Vulcans: Kristen Orrett

#17 left defensive back for the California Vulcan women’s soccer team Interviewed/Layout by Joshua Laska Sports/Managing Editor

What was it like coming to America to play soccer? It was an exciting experience getting to finally be living my dream of playing soccer in the states.

How much different is it playing at the Cal than in Canada? Playing at the collegiate level you are faced with girls of a broader age range and the competition has therefore been that much harder.

How hard was it to adjust to college play? It wasn’t too difficult. It was more so getting used to a higher level of physical play.

What was the hardest thing to learn at the college level? You can never be complacent or content with your game; you’ve always got to be looking to improve.

How do you stay “in the game” during the offseason? Training constantly so that you are physically fit and ready for when you get back in season.
