Knights reel in a winner UCF wins collegiate bass fishing title BRANDI BROXSON News Editor

Two members of the UCF Reel Knights bass fishing team came back to Orlando with a championship trophy, and it’s a keeper. Miles “Sonar” Burghoff and Casey O’Donnell beat out 144 other college teams at the 2011 BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship in Dallas, Texas last week. According to Burghoff, the tournament is the largest collegiate bass fishing championship in the nation. Burghoff and O’Donnell arrived in Texas on May 22 and practiced for two days before the start of the tournament. They fished for about nine hours each day, according to Burghoff. The win provided a great boost to the Reel Knights club at UCF. According to its website, the Reel Knights club was established in the spring semester of 2006 and is dedicated to preserving the sport of fishing. Reel Knights Bass Team President Chris Bozas said the championship win is a sign of good things to come. “This is the first time the UCF Bass Team has ever won a tournament, and it couldn’t have come at a better time,” Bozas said. “As our club and team continue to grow every year, this win puts us at a new level.” The duo had never fished together before the championship, but, according to Burghoff and O’Donnell, they worked well as a team. “From the first day of practice to the end of the tournament, we were having a great time,” said O’Donnell, a junior marketing major.

Burghoff said he has been fishing from a young age and has competed in more than 60 tournaments. Burghoff and O’Donnell said they won a total of $6,500 for the Reel Knights club, as well as fishing products, such as jigs and lures, a traveling trophy and an opportunity to advance to the Bass Federation National Championship, which will take place next spring. Burghoff said he prepared for the tournament by researching the lake they

would be fishing at, as well as researching the seasonal pattern of the fish. “Fishing is a very personal sport,” Burghoff said. “It’s based on your experiences and how you put the puzzle together.” Both O’Donnell and Burghoff said the Texas lakes were much different to fish compared to Florida lakes;

Hey UCF medical students, instead of lugging around a heavy textbook, how about pulling the contents up on your phone? There’s an app for that. Renal Physiology, a digital textbook application created by Dr. Jonathan Kibble, an associate professor of physiology at UCF, launched on April 19 as a less-expensive, high-tech alternative.

The launch is the culmination of a project started two years ago by Kibble and David Rogers, founder and CEO of Allogy Interactive, the Orlando-based mobile application developer. “The idea was to explore what a next-generation textbook is really going to be,” Rogers said. “We wanted to step beyond simply displaying the content in a new media to doing something more powerful.” The Renal Physiology app gives students the

Foundation of 330-year-old church found in N.Fla. University of Florida archaeologists have uncovered the foundation of what they say is a more than 330-year-old stone church in St. Augustine. Archaeologists say it's the oldest church of its kind in the state. The church is believed to have been built in 1677. The foundation was found on the site of the first and longest-lasting of the Spanish missions in Florida. After English raiders destroyed the church in 1728, the ruins were buried and forgotten. The site is now home to a modern church and chapel.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the two citizen patrol officers were on a routine patrol Friday in Brandon when a manager from a Pep Boys stopped them to report a man trying to make a fraudulent transaction. The sheriff's office says the volunteers started surveillance and called deputies, who arrested 19year-old Dalton G. Rowe. Authorities say Rowe had a warrant for escape from the Hancock County jail in Greenfield, Ind. A message left Saturday for Rowe's Indiana attorney was not immediately returned. — ASSOCIATED PRESS

You may not be familiar with unicoding, encoding or html, but junior computer sciences major Jeremy Mayeres utilizes his knowledge of these processes at his summer internship every day. Mayeres’ commute takes him through Kennedy Space Center and, with a flash of a badge, Mayeres enters the Cape Canaveral Air Force station and gets to work on developing codes for the Fleet Ballistic Missile program. The Central Florida Future had the opportunity to interview Mayeres to see what a day in the life of a software developer intern is like. Central Florida Future: What do you hope to pursue with your computer sciences degree? Mayeres: I want to be a software developer. The field is always changing, so I hope to be able to be on the leading edge of developing new technologies and software. CFF: Why computer sciences? Mayeres: I have always been interested in computers. I started in middle school; programming little things, making websites. I went to a high school that had a computer science track, and I’ve stuck with it through college. It’s fun; it’s my passion. I’ve known for years that I wanted to be a software developer. CFF: What do you do as a software developer? Mayeres: I develop code that supports the Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM) program. CFF: How/when did you get the job? Mayeres: I actually had this job last summer as well. I had applied for internships at Lockheed Martin and finally got a phone interview

CFF: Tell me about a typical day at your job. Mayeres: It’s more relaxed than it sounds. I come in (after driving 40 miles and getting past the badge check), go to my computer, catch up on emails and start working. Part of the job requires researching what I need to do exactly to get the job done (look at old code, find out who to talk to, write out a plan). It’s not all coding, though; there’s a lot of documentation that gets written, and I also have chats with others about how to do something or what needs to be in that program. CFF: What do you like most about your job? Mayeres: It’s hard to say; I really like the people I work with, the location and the job itself. Everyone is really nice and friendly. I get to work at one of the most famous locations and see some amazing things like the NASA Vehicle Assembly Building going to/from work, the Atlas and Delta launch facilities, the shuttle launch pad and the hangar where the solid rocket boosters come back from the recovery ships. And I get amazing experience in my field. CFF: What is it like to work so closely to the Kennedy Space Center buildings? Mayeres: It’s exciting for me. I drive past them every day, and I feel humbled to get to go by them every day. I’ve had lunch on several occasions at the NASA cafeteria, and it’s cool to know that the people eating there are all part of the space program. I’ve gotten tours (last year) of the Space Station Processing Facility [where I] walked on the floor, past such things as the Multi-Purpose Logistics Module, the United

Launch Alliance facilities, the Atlas V Vertical Integration Facility, control/launch rooms, and the Delta IV launch pad, under a Delta IV Heavy rocket, among other things. It was all really cool.

CFF: Has there been a shuttle launch when you were working? Describe the experience. Mayeres: My first day this summer was the launch of STS-134 (Endeavour’s [second-to-last] launch). Everyone walked out of the office a few minutes before launch and walked (a short walk) to the NASA Causeway, where we got to see the launch from up close. It was cloudy, so we saw maybe the first 20 seconds of it, but the sound was intense.

Auto engineers drive for top 25 next year FROM A1 The team paid a $2,000 entry fee, earned through donations and fundraisers, to tackle competition from all over the world including such countries as Singapore, Venezuela and Japan. The students’ performances were tested by automotive experts from General Motors, Ford and Honda — three companies seeking to hire new post-grad talent. Formula SAE at UCF placed 14th in the cost report event, in which the jury discussed the vehicle’s cost calculation based on the manufacturing materials. According to T.J. Yankee, UCF Formula SAE public relations spokesman, the total cost of the car came to $17,000. SAE placed 15th in the acceleration event, in which the race car was evaluated on its accelerating ability from a standing start over a distance of 75 meters. Yankee said the team began planning to construct the car during the summer of 2010 because of all the complications that can occur with having to build a car from nothing. “It’s really difficult to be able to create a car with raw materials that must perform the challenges imposed at the event,” Yankee said. “The hardest thing is to manage the time between doing well in school and building the car.” The student club met twice a week for a year despite their academic schedules. They dedicated as much time as possible to finish the car and completed the task just a few weeks before the

tors, and for the amount of funding collected, the results exceeded members’ expectations. “I can speak on behalf of Formula SAE [at UCF] that for what we had, we did extraordinarily well,” Herbst said. For the competition, SAE received $8,000 from SGA, while the remaining $9,000 came from individual efforts. Next year, the club plans on finishing SAE in the top 25. “We already began planning for next year’s event,” Herbst said. “The knowledge from this year will help us do better next year.”

Program to provide a creative outlet for veterans FROM A1 duty, Mujica decided to take advantage of the resources that were available at the Department of Veterans Affairs. According to the VA’s website, the veteran population in Florida is 1,650,900. Nationwide, one in eight military personnel returning from the battlefield suffers from some form of PTSD. Although he was not diagnosed with PTSD, Mujica said he’s seen little empathy for returning heroes, and most veterans are reluctant to seek help for fear of being stigmatized. “I’m not claiming to be a doctor, but I know that this mode of writing helped me deal with certain issues in the past,” Mujica said. In San Francisco, the VA Medical Center has started the Psychosocial Rehabilitation and Recovery Center, a program that tackles similar social-rebuilding skills. Veterans are medically screened and given a choice of activities to encourage selfexpression. Artwork, creative writing and journaling are just three of the most common formats that are proving successful. Mujica has researched extensively the power of journaling as a form of self-healing and selfexpression. He has just now begun to reach out to fellow veterans and students who share the same philosophy. UCF alumna Heidi Hosmer was more than willing to donate her time to the new team. Although not a veteran herself, Hosmer believes she has much to contribute to the program. “I am here to support veterans academically, and with any character development needed,” said Hosmer, who earned her degree in psychology. Jim Middlekauff, the assistant registrar for UCF Veteran Services, encourages all his veterans to be persistent. “Any assistance we can give our student veterans is what the VARC is about…[VARC] is their home to polish skills they will

need to achieve future goals.” Mujica and Hosmer are hopeful that more people will participate in the program.

“I just don’t think people know that these resources are here for them,” Mujica said. “My purpose is to bring a better

sense of community among veterans, and maybe eventually their families. Sometimes when words are on paper they resolve

themselves. Journal-keeping allows veterans to move on, and finally deal with recurring issues.”

Experts: Anthony defense team faces uphill battle KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated Press

ORLANDO — Legal experts say prosecutors’ meticulous murder case against Casey Anthony so far, along with the woman’s sensational claims that her father covered up her daughter’s death after the 2-year-old drowned, could make it difficult to avoid a conviction. Saturday ended the second week of testimony in Anthony’s murder trial, and prosecutors say it also marks roughly the halfway point of their case. Prosecutors are trying to prove that the single mother, then 22, suffocated her daughter Caylee by placing duct tape over the girl’s mouth and then dumped her body in the woods near her parents’ home. It’s a high-profile case that has demanded a methodical approach from a prosecution team with more than 70 years of combined experience — in part because, if convicted, Anthony could become only the fourth woman added to Florida’s current roster of 397 death row inmates. Meanwhile, defense attorneys introduced a wild theory during opening statements, saying that the toddler accidentally drowned on June 15, 2008, in her grandparents’ swimming pool and that grandfather George Anthony helped dispose of her body. They also claimed he molested Casey when she was a child, leaving her emotionally scarred. Even without a clear motive established for why Casey Anthony, now 25, might have killed her daughter, some court watchers said those defense arguments may be overshadowing any defi-

ciencies in the prosecution’s case. “I believe they have almost relieved the state of their burden of proof by making such strong assertions in opening statements,” said Karin Moore, a professor at Florida A&M University’s College of Law. “They are going to have to prove it now. It is going to be a difficult task for them.” Caylee was last seen by her grandparents on June 16, 2008. The state contends Anthony waited 31 days before telling her family the toddler was missing. George Anthony denied abusing his daughter and being involved with Caylee’s death on the witness stand, at one point lowering his head and saying, “When I heard that ... it hurt really badly.” So far, prosecutors have mostly ignored all that, meticulously showing jurors the carefree lifestyle Anthony led during the month her child was believed to be missing, and through the repeated lies she told friends, family and law enforcement. They have also presented evidence that a decomposing body — presumably that of Caylee — was in Casey Anthony’s car. But the bulk of their forensic evidence is still to come, and it’s unclear if it will be enough for a conviction in a highly circumstantial case. Casey Anthony told detectives she had been trying to find her daughter in the month before the disappearance was reported, but so far prosecutors have shown numerous examples of her going to nightclubs, shopping and hanging out with friends during that time. It’s also undisputed by the defense that once law enforcement was notified, Anthony continued to spin

a web of lies centered on an imaginary nanny named “Zanny” that she initially said kidnapped her daughter, taking detectives to a vacant apartment where she claimed the woman lived. She also took them to Universal Studios theme park, where she had told her parents she worked as an events planner, talking her way in despite having no employee identification. She dropped the charade as she walked detectives toward what she said was her office — but still said she had anything to do with Caylee’s disappearance. The detectives called her a liar and at one point asked her if Caylee had drowned. One potential problem for prosecutors is that all their witnesses who knew the two have only used

words like “loving” and “special” to describe Casey and Caylee’s bond — giving no indication the woman wanted to harm her daughter. That’s why prosecutors have focused on Anthony’s lies. They even showed more than five hours of recorded jailhouse visits she had with her parents, in which she continued to insist Caylee was kidnapped. The visits occurred after Anthony was jailed on child neglect and criminal obstruction charges and before she was charged with Caylee’s death. The videos also seem to undercut the defense contention that he helped cover up his granddaughter’s death, as he appears to not know where she might be and clings to the hope she might be alive.

Kendall Coffey, a former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida in Miami, said things don’t appear to be going well for the defense. “Given all the question marks about this case and the lack of strong motive evidence for Casey Anthony to kill her own child, there might have been a defense ability to pause at accidental death,” Coffey said. “But what happened is that in the opening, the defense went too far, raised other sensational allegations that they don’t seem to have any sensational evidence to back up.” Defense attorney Jose Baez has kept the drowning theory alive, getting lead detective Yuri Melich to admit that Anthony’s mother, Cindy, mentioned seeing the ladder to the

family’s above-ground pool up and the gate open in early June. At the same time, lead prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick and fellow state attorneys Frank George and Jeff Ashton have gotten virtually everyone Casey interacted with in June and July 2008 to say she never mentioned her child wasn’t alive during that time. In the end, Coffey thinks it might force defense attorneys to do something they don’t want to do. “They might not have any choice but to put Casey Anthony on the stand,” Coffey said. “And given the clear evidence that she is a compulsive liar, that is the worst kind of choice any defense lawyer would have to make.”

Duo overcomes the unknown, bad weather FROM A1 although they said it didn’t take them long to get used to the change and develop a fishing pattern. In addition to the change in lakes, the two also faced intense weather, according to tournament director Wade Middleton. “This year’s winners truly impressed me with their preparation and execution under the toughest conditions this event has ever been faced with," Middleton said. "The week started off with heavy rains, hail and even tornadoes; however, UCF never wavered or quit, and that determination and drive allowed them to be crowned this year’s national champions in a very deserving and decisive manner.” Their catch on the first day weighed in at 17.07 pounds. On the second

day, the duo added 10.85 pounds, finishing out the competition with a total of 27.92 pounds. The team from the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff placed second with a total of 25.67 pounds. According to the Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship website, the BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Series will be televised on Versus beginning the last Sunday in July at 2 p.m. Both O’Donnell and Burghoff said they are excited for the Bass Federation National Championship next spring and encourage others to join the Reel Knights club and get involved in fishing. “It’s such a great family sport, and it’s a great way to spend time with friends. The memories you can have during fishing will last you forever,” O’Donnell said.

App to serve as learning assistant FROM A1 place,” Kibble said. “Why not your class materials too?” This idea allows people to see the inner workings of the kidneys through their iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. This app, an interactive version of part of Kibble’s textbook, The Big Picture: Medical Physiology, is just the first in a series about physiology, according to UCF News and Information. The material was reformatted, and some new writing was done to create features like terminology, quizzes and clinical correlations, Kibble said. The app will save students cash and aggravation. “It saves students a ton of money and keeps their backpacks as light as their phone or tablet,” Colin Forward, communications director for Allogy, said.

Not only is it beneficial to medical students, but it can also be a valuable tool for instructors. It is a tool that can enable instructors to monitor their students’ progress. “It also coaches students all the way through the learning process, even providing reminders for important dates associated with the material, like exams,” Forward said. After spending some time figuring out what will best help students understand and retain information, the team at Allogy took the content provided by Kibble and worked closely with him to determine the proper methods for displaying graphics, administering quizzes and coaching students through their studies. “We start with development of a mobile application framework, and then add in the content, test it and find ways to improve the application,” Rogers said. “It is a

NADAL DEFEATS FEDERER FOR SIXTH FRENCH OPEN VICTORY PARIS — Rafael Nadal is still better on clay than the most successful Grand Slam champion of all time, beating Roger Federer in their fourth French Open final 7-5, 7-6 (3), 5-7, 6-1 on Sunday. Nadal, who equaled Bjorn Borg’s record of six French Open titles and earned his 10th major with the victory, dropped to his knees and covered his face after Federer sent a forehand long on match point. “To win this final against one of the best players in the world and in history is something which is really fantastic for me,” said Nadal, who will keep his No. 1 ranking. “It’s one of my most beautiful dreams.” The top-ranked Nadal improved his record at Roland Garros to 45-1, and to 17-8 against Federer. In Grand Slam finals, Nadal is 6-2 against his main rival. “As it often happens, he is the best on clay,” Federer said. “He proved it once again.” It was the first time in more than two years that Nadal and Federer met in a Grand Slam final. They have played in 13 major finals, seven more than any other pair of men in tennis history. Nadal was playing to Federer’s backhand on Court Philippe Chatrier, but even the 16-time Grand Slam champion’s forehand was off. He committed 56 unforced errors in the match, while Nadal had only 27. “For today, we played, I think, a good match,” Nadal said, then apologized to Federer for beating him. “Sorry for that and well done to his team.” Nadal is the second youngest man behind Borg to reach 10 major titles. The Spaniard also is about six months younger than Federer was when he won his 10th. Federer is 14-1 is Grand Slam finals against opponents other than Nadal. But besides the four defeats at Roland Garros, Federer lost to Nadal once at Wimbledon and once at the Australian Open. His two wins over Nadal both came at Wimbledon. “You’re not thinking of winning down two sets to love and 4-2, but you’re thinking of coming back and turning around the match,” Federer said. “All of a sudden at 0-0 in the fourth set you think, ‘OK we have a match again.”

Louisville Elite 11 QB Smith will be a Knight after all ERIKA ESOLA Sports Editor

It’s been a whirlwind spring for DaMarcus Smith. It all began on Feb. 4 when Smith spurned his hometown of Louisville, Ky., by choosing to sign with the Knights over hometown school Louisville to play football. At the time, Smith cited signing with UCF as a “business decision.” Then, on March 28, Smith’s mother, Daytonya Ward, called Knights head coach George O’Leary asking for a release of Smith’s signed National Letter of Intent with the Knights. O’Leary, who said Ward told him “her son really just wants to go to Louisville” at the time, declined the request. “With my situation, I’ve been getting a lot of media attention here back at home,” Smith said. “There’s been a lot of pressure.” The pressure is finally starting to dissipate for Smith. Smith will fulfill his signed NLOI and will be a Knight. — DAMARCUS SMITH The Elite 11 quarterback will arrive on campus at UCF in time for the summer B session.

Knights fall to Alabama 12-5, season ends TRESSEL “ALWAYS A BUCKEYE”

JESSICA GILLESPIE

UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio — Former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel told people at a rally on his front doorstep that he would always be a Buckeye and that the team will beat Michigan again this November. After a crowd of some 200 people had sung a song disparaging the archrival Wolverines early Saturday evening, Tressel said, “Don’t forget: Nov. 26th we’re going to kick their ass!” “We’re going to be Buckeyes for life,” Tressel said, his arm around his wife. “What’s that old saying? Buckeye born and bred, a Buckeye ‘til I’m dead.” He showed no emotion, thanking the fans as they departed after 20 minutes or so.

UCF’s road to Omaha came to a screeching halt in Tallahassee. The Knights couldn’t handle No. 3 seed Alabama, falling to the Crimson Tide twice in three days in the NCAA Tournament Tallahassee Regional. No. 2 seed UCF never led in Friday’s regional opener, a 5-3 defeat. With a chance for revenge on Sunday, the Knights could not break through as Alabama eliminated the Knights from the tournament, 12-5.

Federer, like fine wine, continues to get better with age As darkness began to bear down at Roland Garros on Friday, Roger Federer yet again saved his best for last. In a moment of sheer brilliance, Federer smashed an ace through the left corner of the service box. In doing so, he smashed Novak Djokovic’s dreams of entering the record books, winning the match 7-6, 63, 3-6, 7-6. Djokovic, who could have gained the world’s No. 1 rank with a victory,

Yet, Federer’s victory seemed to shock NBC’s broadcast team, McEnroe included, as they raised questions about his age and diminishing skill set. Really?

Players shift focus to MLB Draft FROM A8 game unfortunately doesn’t make a season. I want them to continue to focus on the bigger picture. They have a lot to be proud of and they represented UCF tremendously right to the very end." Considered one of the best defenses in the country with their .978 fielding average and only 53 errors throughout the season, the Knights racked up three against Alabama on Sunday. It was the first time UCF had three or more errors in a game since April 1. The Tide took advantage of starter Ben Lively, who didn’t record an out before he was pulled. Alabama scored four, one run being a lead-off home run by Taylor Dugas, in the first. Reliever Nick Cicio kept the Tide scoreless for three innings while the Knights continued to score a run per inning for the next three to tie the game. But Alabama turned the game around, finishing the Knights by scoring six unearned runs in the seventh inning. D.J. Hicks hit his 14th home run of the year in the ninth to give UCF one final run. Hicks went 6for-12 in the NCAA Tournament, while fellow

No previous draft pick. power-hitter Jonathan Griffin went 7-for-13 with three doubles, a triple, a home run and 5 RBI. After two UCF errors botched the pitcher’s duel that carried into the sixth inning, the Knights regained control with an eight-hit, eight-run attack in the seventh to take the lead and defeat No. 4 seed Bethune-Cookman, 16-5, in Saturday’s NCAA Tallahassee Regional elimination game. Starter Danny Winkler struck out six and gave up only two hits before Ryan Breen and Ronnie Richardson collided on a routine fly ball in the sixth and Breen overthrew second. Winkler couldn’t shake it off and with two outs, the Wildcats loaded the

bases and scored four unearned runs to take a one-run lead. The Knights fought back, adding eight runs in the seventh to regain the lead for good. Bethune-Cookman’s starter, Rayan Gonzalez, pitched six innings and fanned eight UCF batters, giving up eight hits but only three runs. Neither Gonzalez nor Winkler got a decision, as Cicio earned UCF’s win. UCF fell to Alabama in the first game of the Tallahassee Regional on Friday, 5-3. Alabama’s Nathan Kilcrease struck out 10 batters in seven innings for the win while Brian Adkins gave up four runs on nine hits in six innings in his fifth loss of

Ward had filed an appeal with the NCAA’s NLOI board last month appealing Smith’s signed NLOI with the Knights, but the thought of sitting out of football a year was too much to keep Smith away from UCF.

the season.

MLB Draft is next With the season now over, several Knights now look to the MLB Draft, which starts today. Drafteligible Knights include: seniors Jonathan Griffin, Nick Cicio, Chase Bradford, Johnny Sedlock and Derek Luciano; juniors Beau Taylor, Danny Winkler, Erik Hempe and Travis Shreve; sophomores D.J. Hicks and Ronnie Richardson.

Crawford, Randolph and Chicago Bulls’ forward Carlos Boozer, also 29, just signed long-term contract extensions; no need to worry about their professional careers. I understand that Federer has struggled in recent matches against Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, but he’s one of the few athletes in the world whose B-game surpasses other athletes’ A-game. Ask Andy Roddick (and his career 2-20 headto-head record against Federer) if Roger’s washed up. If you ask me, Federer has gotten better with age in a number of respects. First and foremost, he might be the most mentally tough player to come along in three decades. When he started his career, Federer was viewed as a bit of a punk who smashed his records and screamed whenever things got away from him. Now, he is regarded as tennis’ all-time mental warrior, owning a career record of 175-0 when leading after two sets in grand slam matches. Simply put, if Fed is ahead, put the match to bed. Federer has also developed a serve which rivals some of the biggest hitters’. His final ace on Friday scorched the earth at

127 mph. In the fourth set. In a tiebreak. After more than three and a half hours of playing. He might also be the most well-conditioned athlete in the sport, not just some “grandpa” as NBC jokingly called him. While Nadal has battled a number of nagging injuries along the road to greatness, Federer has not missed any significant time with an injury. Well, unless you consider his bout of mononucleosis an injury, that is. But at the end of the day, what makes Federer the toughest out in tennis is his ability to hit nearimpossible shots. Whether it’s a one-handed backhand down the line or a passing shot through his legs, Federer is never truly out of a point. So regardless of his defeat against Nadal in Sunday’s title, a man he’s now lost to in 17 of 25 career matches, it’s clear that we have not seen the last of the mighty Federer. While walking toward the net to shake the fallen Djokovic’s hand, Federer shook his pointer finger as if to say ‘I’m not done yet; I’ve got one more left in me.’ It also served as a reminder of who the true No. 1 is in the tennis world.

OUR STANCE

Elected officials should behave O

n Friday, former U.S. Sen. John Edwards (DN.C.) was indicted before a federal grand jury for allegedly using illegal campaign donations to conceal his affair with a mistress from the voters, according to the Washington Post. What makes this sad is this is an amazing fall from grace for someone who had serious potential to affect change in this country. Edwards is a high-profile figure; a brilliant, well-educated man who rose to fame through his abilities as a personal-injury lawyer who was able to win large settlements for the people whom he represented. When we were first introduced to Edwards, most regarded him as a handsome, well-spoken man with a certain southern charm to him that resonated with many voters. This led Edwards to become a prominent figure within his party, as a U.S. senator and a fierce advocate for the poor. Edwards spoke many times of making the eradication of poverty “the cause of his life.” Given his personal wealth and visibility as a public figure, he certainly had the means and attention with which to tackle this and many other issues. There is no doubt that if

he is indeed found guilty of the allegations against him, he will have definitely engaged in wrongdoing unbecoming of a former public official and national figure. The sad part, however, is the potential that has been lost due to his personal downfall. As a former U.S. senator, vice presidential candidate and presidential candidate, he carried a fair amount of influence with the American people. Had it not been for this affair and the current allegations against him, he could have easily found himself serving as a prominent figure in the Obama administration, possibly as a U.S. ambassador or a cabinet secretary. His voice could have been an important part of the national discussion on the problems that the government currently faces, instead, he finds himself looking at possible prison time. Edwards fell prey to the personal aggrandizement and narcissism that can develop in people who are given great power. Edwards admitted this himself in an interview with ABC News in 2008, where he discussed his affair with Rielle Hunter. “I went from being a senator, a young senator, to being

considered for vice president, running for president, being a vice presidential candidate and becoming a national public figure. All of which fed a self-focus, an egotism, a narcissism that leads you to believe that you can do whatever you want. You’re invincible. And there will be no consequences,” Edwards said in the interview. This type of behavior and thinking also cuts along party lines. Former U.S. Senator John Ensign (R-Nev.) rose to become chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, a body charged with electing Republicans to the Senate. He recently resigned from office amid a Senate Ethics Committee investigation into an affair with a woman who was married to one of his top legislative aides. With great power comes great responsibility, which is an important lesson that some elected officials never learn. Elected officials who are in power and given the public trust need to remember that they are public servants and are not invincible. Hopefully Edwards can serve as an example of how not to behave, and politicians will learn to be humble and walk softly.
