CJ students bring home the trophies

Fifteen students from CMU’s chapter of the American Criminal Justice Association recently attended the Region III Criminal Justice conference in Springfield, Mo. They returned home with more trophies than any other group represented at the conference. The students competed in several different categories including crime scene investigation, physical agility, criminal law, police organization, corrections, Lambda Alpha Epsilon knowledge and juvenile justice. They were entered against schools from Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Utah, and Wyoming. Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice Teri Haack placed first in four different professional division areas. CMU student Rebecca Brehe placed first in the upper division categories of police organization and juvenile justice. Alexandria Leiva also placed first

in upper division of criminal law. Along with those who placed first, several other students brought home trophies in each category. The full list of CMU winners is as follows: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION: Professional Division, First place: Teri Haack, Nicholas Glandon & Rebecca Brehe (Nick and Rebecca are upper level students) Upper Division: Second Place: Christopher Beaverson, James Rowe & Sean Goyer PHYSICAL AGILITY: Male: Age 25 and under: Collin Teal, 3rd place Male: Age 26 - 35: Sean Goyer, Second Place Female: Age 36 and over: 3rd place: Teri Haack CRIMINAL LAW: Professional Division: First Place: Teri Haack Upper Division (PLA swept this division): First Place: Alexandria Leiva; Second Place: Rebecca Brehe; Third Place: Cameron Yates.

The job description for a CMU student Ambassador sounds simple and straightforward. The job itself, however, is anything but. Eleven students are representing the university as ambassadors for 2011-12. To serve in the capacity, CMU looks each year for “the cream of the crop” amongst the student body, according to Julia Costigan, assistant director of admissions. Eligible students must attend CMU full-time and hold an exemplary academic standing, Costigan said. Literally hundreds of students meet those criteria. But not everyone can accomplish what Costigan said is the crux of being an ambassador: “To personally portray everything that CMU has to offer” to prospective students, and their parents. Though the ambassadors work for CMU’s Admissions Department, they are called on to help with a variety of university activities, such as alumni events or community/public happenings. When they aren’t doing that, or giving tours to prospective students and their families, they work in the Admissions Office doing a variety of tasks. Eldar Rizvanov, a senior political science major from Sterlitamak, Russia, is this year’s Lead Ambassador, Costigan said. In his fourth year working for CMU Ad-

missions, “he’s a big help to me in running the ambassador program,” Costigan said. The Lead Ambassador is someone who goes “above and beyond” on behalf of CMU, she added.

Ambassadors for 2011-12 include: Amanda Adair, sophomore business major from Boonville; Ronan Doyle, senior physical education major from Porto Alegre, Brazil; Kelli Esquivel, junior preeducation major from Marshfield;

New face in career development Nicolette A. Yevich, formerly associate director of the Student Center and Campus Life for Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., is the new director of CMU’s career development center. She began work Oct. 20. Yevich brings a wide range of experience in working with students and faculty, with more than 16 years in higher education. A resident of Columbia, this is her first experience in living in the Midwest. She holds degrees in communication and student development. The change in leadership is the

result of the late summer departure of Linda Lorenz to become director of Public Service and Public Interest at the Career Development Center at the University of Missouri School of Law.

twined with networking posssibilities. Several CMU students have been offered jobs from those they have met at these conferences. Students participate in workshops and meet nationally-recognized experts in the criminal justice field. CMU representatives prepared for about six weeks for the competition by using study groups for the respective academic areas. The five testing areas are criminal law, police organization and management, corrections, juvenile justice, and Lambda Alpha Epsilon Knowledge (consists of history, bylaws, and standing rules). There are three divisions are competition: lower, upper,

and professional. The lower and upper divisions are divided by the amount of credits students have. The professional division is for those who have finished college and are employed in a criminal justice field, such as a police officer or criminal justice professor. One interesting event at the conference is the crime scene competition. The crime scene is set up, and teams of three have 15 minutes to look for evidence. Each team has an interviewer, crime scene investigator (CSI) technician, and a sketcher. The interviewer asks witnesses questions while the CSI technician and sketcher collaborate for

measurements and evidence. After 15 minutes, the team leaves the scene and has 45 minutes to write a report. The interviewer writes the main report while the sketcher makes the sketches. The evidence log sheet is completed by the CSI technician. This supplemental report lists the evidence, where the pieces were found, why they were sent to the lab, and for what the items will be tested. “It was a challenge,” said Rebecca Brehe, chemistry major and criminal justice minor, “and it was fun to work with two experienced people. [Professor Haack and Nick Glandon] are both good at their respective jobs.” Brehe

ald Heaton, bassoon; Emily Schultz, alto saxophone; John Critchlow, alto saxophone; Danielle Amos (senior, accounting, Guilford), tenor saxophone; and Michael Utlaut, baritone saxophone. The various ensembles are under the direction of Ron Shroyer, professor emeritus of music; Jo Ellen Shroyer, adjunct professor of music; Dori Waggoner, assistant professor of music; John Perkins, associate professor of music; and Susan Quigley-Duggan, assistant professor of music and director of CMU’s opera program.

Criminal justice event provides real world experience (See also article on Page 1)

Members of CMU’s Pi Lambda Alpha chapter attended the American Criminal Justice AssociationLambda Alpha Epsilon Regional Conference two weeks ago. The region is comprised of schools from Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah. Along with competition, there are lots of learning opportunities for students.. Leadership and professional development is inter-

competed in the upper division and took first place in both juvenile justice and police management and organization. She received second place in criminal law. Brehe plans on becoming a crime scene investigator, so the crime scene competition was great experience. The event also confirmed that it’s the career field she wishes to enter. This year’s theme was “Doing the Right Things for the Right Reason,” which focused on ethics in criminal justice.

UMC leadership event set

By MICHAEL POPE The next CMU/UMC Leadership Institute is set for May 8, 2012. It will feature Bishop Will Willimon, leader of the United Methodist North Alabama Conference. He is a popular speaker, author and leader within the denomination. His topic will be “The Greatest Challenges of Leadership in the Name of Jesus,” focusing on the unique qualities of leadership in the church (and elsewhere) in the name of Christ. Questions he will address include: What are the distinctive contributions that the Christian faith can make to the theory and practice of leadership? How are Christian leaders particular sorts of leaders? Willimon’s presentation will be based, in part, on his new book, “Bishop: Questioning Authority by an Authority in Question.” The book will be included in this year’s registration fee, which is $15 per person. A noon meal will be provided at no additional cost. This traditional leadership event is sponsored annually by CMU, Salem-in-Ladue United Methodist Church, the Missouri Conference Office of Congregational Excellence and the Missouri Conference Office of Pastoral Excellence. CMU President Marianne Inman and Dr. David Kerr, CMU ’67, (retired senior pastor of Salem-in-

Ladue Church) first conceived of an educational leadership event that would be true to the Wesleyan heritage of connecting Christian faith with knowledge and good works. The gathering initially was known as the Clergy Day Apart at CMU which later evolved to include laypersons as well. The institute has undergone significant changes since 2007. President Inman realized the need to expand CMU’s outreach for this event and called a meeting early in 2010 with Bob Farr, director of the Missouri Conference’s congregational excellence office, and this writer, That was the beginning of what’s now known as the CMU Leadership Institute. The institute moved from the fall to the spring, following CMU’s graduation, to avoid conflicts with the academic calendar and fall programs of United Methodist congregations. Those changes, in addition to offering input from some of the brightest and most influential leaders on church growth and renewal, have enhanced participation of both clergy and laity.

Central F lashback Before the current Student and Community Center was constructed, many campus activities were carried out in the old Eyrie, a wooden World War II army surplus building acquired in 1947 and enlarged in 1963. The main ballroom included a mirror ball which hung from the ceiling and added a certain sparkle during school dances such as this one in the 1950s. The Eyrie was torn down to make room for the present facility.

P e rs p e c tiv e s

By GEOFREY BILABAYE Have you ever wondered about your worth as a human being among other living things? Have you ever wondered how much success a human can achieve or what the limits of human ingenuity are? In 1969, for the first time in the history of the world since its creation, man landed on moon. This was the most profound display of the greatness in human intellect that man has ever displayed. To me this tells me that my success in my life is limited by the limits I put on myself. The moment, I or we, say “I do not think I can manage such a thing,” that’s when we really cannot manage it and fail as a punishment for doubting possible things. Politically and technologically this was the biggest success for the United States over Russia, its closest rival in the race to the moon. The Russians sent Luna 15, which was an unmanned device to the moon, and then, three days later, America’s APOLLO 11 joined the race, and rendered real humans on the moon. The biggest fear for the Russians was whether they would be able to bring their men back to earth safely, while the United States took a considerable and calculated chance (or opportunity) and sent Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin Jr. as the first human beings to lay a foot on the moon. Despite the conspiracies rising among people whether the moon landing was faked, it still doesn’t make any sense to a person who has so far seen what a human being can achieve, a person who truly believes in the possibilities of everything to be achieved, a person who knows for sure if there is unshakable determination then “the road to success has no speed limits.” The only reason there are two main categories

of human beings psychologically, in my opinion, is that there are people who are made up of fear and think, unfortunately they cannot do so much for this world and probably only a few are gifted, and the other type of person who knows for sure they may not be good enough, but they believe they can still do something, no matter how little it may be. These people are those human beings who realize risk taking is costly but they still believe there are unlimited and uncalculated rewards if they are successful. An example is Armstrong and Aldrin. For some reason and because of the fact that these were human beings and people just like us, I do not doubt it was difficult for them to take this mission. They knew this adventure would bring pride to their country and to themselves and also provide new knowledge that had never been encountered, even by people who were believed to be the world’s top intellectuals. Because of their bravery, we now know what is on the moon, what types of rocks are there, and whether geologically the moon is still active or dead. But there was a real risk of life or death for the astronauts. The fear of death could not overpower the curiosity of humans and their desire to know what really lies in that thing up there in the sky at night. This curiosity was the driving fuel in their minds and the bravery that Americans will be proud of for many generations to come. A wise man once said, “Don’t tell me the sky is the limit while there are footsteps on the moon.” You are the one to say and decide what is the highest point to which you can succeed as a person.

Last call for fall viewing at observatory CMU’s historic Morrison Observatory will soon cap its telescopes for the season. The weekly guided sessions, open to the public from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. each Thursday, will end Nov. 17, according to Dr. Larry Peery, professor of physics and director of the observatory.

Peery and other CMU faculty and students. along with volunteers from the Central Missouri Astronomical Association, host the sessions, which include tours that explain the facility’s history and feature hands-on science activities. Visitors are able to use a variety of telescopes for viewing,

weather permitting. The Observatory, celebrating its 136th year, is located at 700 Park Road in Fayette next to the Fayette City Park. Peery said public access will resume next March. For additional information, contact him by email at




Moving sale planned In preparation for its ultimate move to a renovated Classic Hall, CMU’s Ashby-Hodge Gallery of American Art will hold a oncein-a-lifetime “moving sale” of artwork from its permanent collection. The sale will take place in the current gallery on first floor of the library (Cupples Hall). It will run from Sunday through Thursday, Nov. 13-17, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. each day. According to Curator Joe Geist, the sale will offer a variety

of items owned by the gallery, from oils and watercolors to posters and artifacts. Sale offerings will be presented in the gallery, as though disp;ayed for a regular show. The difference is that every item on the walls or pedestals will be marked with a price tag. Everything will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no admission fee.

Where’s the Beef!

By COLLIN BRINK Collegian Faculty Advisor There may be no cheaper way to enjoy a good meal with college friends than pizza. Fortunately there are a few places to find some good pizza. Most of you know Breadeaux and Casey’s here in Fayette have some tasty pizza. I swear I ate a macaroni topped pizza from Casey’s one time but I have not seen it since. I either dreamt it, was enjoying Brett Favre’s medicine at the time, or an employee at Casey’s was experimenting and I happened to show up that day. An investigation in to the Casey’s mystery pizza is for another day so let’s talk pizza. There is one name that pops up when talking about pizza in Columbia. Yes, Shakespeare’s Pizza is numero uno in many peoples’ minds. I disagree. I will admit Shakespeare’s pizza is good but I have a few others I want to tell you about. Shakespeare’s is good pizza but I also think it helps to have the unique atmosphere of the original Shakespeare’s on the corner of 9th and Elm. If you go to the Shakespeare’s on West Broadway then you will feel what I mean about the atmospheric difference between the original location downtown and the strip mall version out west. Be sure to go to Shakespeare’s downtown or you will miss out on the experience. As for the pizza at Shakespeare’s, the prices run from a $5 eight inch pizza up to the $30 sixteen-inch Masterpiece combo. You do pay a premium price at Shakespeare’s since their 16 inch cheese pizzas start at $13 and cost $2.50 for each additional topping and their 16 inch combinations are $23 each.

Their pizzas come in 8, 12, and 16 inch sizes respectively. Prices aside, Shakespeare’s is still worth the try so you can one day compare it to the other places I mention here. My top pizza place in Columbia is Wise Guy’s Pizza. It’s located inside McNally’s Irish Pub on 6th Street between Broadway and Walnut. It’s behind that place on Broadway where people drink those overly sweet frozen drinks. I forget the name of the place but some of you may know what I mean. The irony about McNally’s and Wise Guy’s sharing the same building is that McNally’s is an Irish pub that looks nothing like an Irish pub, but it does look like, because it is, is an old Godfather’s Pizza with a lot of pictures of Ireland and Irish beer memorabilia on the walls. So it’s an old pizza place trying to act like an Irish pub that serves the best pizza in town. The prices at Wise Guy’s are as good as the pizza. How about the 20 inch Untouchable Monster (a trademarked name!) with four plus toppings for twenty bucks? Their one-topping 10 inch starts at $7 and the prices top out with the aforementioned Untouchable Monster at $20. Their pizzas come in 10, 12, 14, and 20 inch sizes. In addition to the normal pizzas, Wise Guy’s offers a Chicago-Style deep dish pizza. The 12 inch single topping starts at $11 and tops out with a 14 inch pizza with up to 6 toppings for $17. A stuffed crust version of the deep dish is also offered

with nearly the same pricing. Please note the deep dish pizzas tend to take a little more time to prepare and cook so don’t order one with the idea it’s a quick grab and go. The deep-dish pizza is worth the wait. My next recommendation is Southside Pizza & Pub located at 3911 Peachtree in Columbia. As the name implies, the restaurant is on the south side of Columbia just west of Providence and a few blocks south of Nifong. Their pizzas range from small for $5 with a 75 cent charge for each additional topping to a medium for $7 with a $1 charge for each additional topping to a large for $9 with a $1.25 charge for each additional topping. Their combination pizzas range from $13 to $14 respectively. Some of the different toppings one can get here is shrimp, gyro meat, and feta cheese. Southside, like Wise Guy’s, is also more like a bar so it can get a crowd on certain nights of the week so don’t be surprised if you go and the seating is limited. Another pizza joint where you can get toppings like Feta cheese, gyro meat, artichoke hearts, shrimp, and anchovies is at G&D Pizzaria at the corner of Stadium and Broadway. Their pizzas run from a 10 inch for $8.10 to the 12 inch for $11 and the 14 inch for $13.35. Their combinations start at $9.25 and top out at $21.50 for the large House Special. I admit I am not as well versed on pizza at G&D because I also eat non-pizza items from the menu. When I do eat pizza at G&D, I normally add a couple of meat toppings to a pizza covered in

Lauren Robb pepper cheese and banana peppers. You cannot beat these toppings. An added benefit of eating at G&D is you may be able to support fellow CMU students since I know a couple who work there, so go and support your fellow students! As I mentioned above, I eat pizza with pepper cheese and banana peppersso I recommend you add pepper cheese to any pizza you have at any of the pizza joints I mentioned today. Pepper cheese is the gooey nectar of the gods when it comes to pizza. Trust me on this one. Banana peppers are also a good add on to pizza if you want real flavor, but it may not be for the faint of stomach. The final note

Name: Lauren Robb Hometown: Columbia Major: Athletic Training Activities: Soccer (Captain), Student Athletic Training Association – SATA (Member) Honors/Awards: Dean’s List, 3rd Team All-HAAC Soccer (2008), Team Captain (2010, 2011), NAIA Scholar-Athlete (2011) Favorite CMU Memory: “Upsetting 12th-ranked Baker this fall and beating them 2-1.” Advice to Freshmen: “Don’t take time for granted. College goes by so fast, so make the most of it. Create lasting friendships, do well in classes, get to know your professors, and don’t be too serious. Have some fun!” Plans after Graduation: “I plan to attend graduate school and get my Masters in something related to athletic training. I would love to go to graduate school in Colorado or someplace new that I can explore and hopefully have a lot of fun with.”

to pass along about all of these places, except Shakespeare’s, is that each offers other items on the menu like sandwiches or other entrees, so everyone does not have to eat pizza if he or she does not want. You and your friends can get a reasonably priced meal and have some fun while doing so. You can’t go wrong at any of these places so try one out the next time you head to Columbia. You may not agree with me as to which is the best, but I know you will be satisfied with what you eat.




(Sophie) sticated Style Fashion by Sophie Wilensky What to Wear and How to Wear It

Women: When it’s good to have the “blues” From the bright neon blues to the rich royal and cobalt blues, this winter season is proving that “singing the blues” is just what the doctor has ordered. The best way to add any shade of blue to an outfit is to add the color on as an accessory. This adds a very colorful visual interest to any outfit, and adds that pop of color when needed for a fabulous night out on the town with your girls, or the perfect date night with your man. The best way to wear your favorite shade of blue is to add any shade of the color to the grey, black and cream pieces in your wardrobe. When wearing your favorite cashmere cream colored sweater or that perfect vintage flannel, try wearing those blue suede heels, a cobalt blue mulberry bag, your favorite blue knit beret, or that must-have neon blue belt. Since it adds textural depth, wearing blue with these rich fall fabrics is one way to be the most fashion forward girl on campus, at work, in school or out at your favorite nightlife spot. All women

want to feel beautiful and confident and wearing a bold color such as blue is the perfect way to get noticed, and feel beautiful while doing so. Beauty Tips to Help Make Your “Blue Look” Complete Hair: Any form of the classic sleek, pulled back ponytail or the girly one-sided braid will match perfectly Make-up: For those sexy nights out on the town, the modern smokey-eye look is the best way to go. For the those casual vintage days with your girls on a shopping and lunch date, a neutral eye shadow with mascara, light pink blush and a neutral lip is the perfect compliment. And for the powerful working women, a perfect mix of a soft neutral eye with bold black mascara and beautiful red lip will do perfectly. P.S. - Adding any sweet smelling fragrance is the perfect way to make any outfit look and feel complete. XOXO - “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.”- Marilyn Monroe

Combined vocal concert happens Sunday CMU’s Swinney Conservatory of Music will present a combined vocal concert of the Conservatory Singers, the Church Street Boys, the Chorale, and the A Cappella Choir this Sunday, Nov. 6, at 4 p.m., in the Linn Memorial Church. Ron Atteberry, assistant professor of music, conducts the Conservatory Singers and the Church Street Boys; and Dr. Claude Westfall, assistant professor of music and director of choral activities, conducts the Chorale (shown above) and the A Cappella Choir, which is composed of both the Conservatory Singers and the Chorale. Adjunct professor Kelley Head and senior Pearse Hutson will accompany the groups. The Church Street Boys will sing “Starts of the Summer Night,” “Prayer of the Children,” and “God Be in my Head.” The Conservatory Singers are presenting “To Sit and Dream,” “Blow Ye the Trumpet,” “Beati Quorum Via,” “Song to the Moon,”with Dr. Dori Waggoner on flute and Hannah Wade on oboe, “I am not Yours,” and “Witness.” The Chorale will perform “Motetta, Wefet Panier

That’s what she said! By MEGHAN BARTON Collegian Columnist Rcently I made the journey back home to St. Louis to attend my cousin’s wedding. I’ve found the majority of weddings are consistent in two things: awkward conversations with family members you don’t know, and open bars (thank God). However, I wasn’t prepared to dodge these bullets all night, “Where’s your boyfriend? Oh, you don’t have one? I work with a gal who has a son in med school!” When I inform them of my relationship status, it’s always accompanied by a confused and disappointed face. Why is that concept so hard to grasp? As if my grandma thinking I’m a lesbian wasn’t enough. I’m mostly disturbed by the average age of individuals interviewing me. Most of the people were younger! Obviously my grandma thinks because I’m in college, I have to “find a nice young man to marry me.” It’s

funny and non-offensive to me because, let’s be real…she’s old. She met my grandpa during her years here at CMU. These questions don’t just come on a regular basis from my family, but from my employers, professors, and the Barista at Starbucks. Shouldn’t my professors be more interested in what I have to say about what’s going on in the world and how I intend to change it, not my relationship status? Aren’t we statistically marrying later, if at all? Why am I getting pressured to lure in the first sucker to slap a ring on my finger? Or am I just that naïve to think that the general public is fully behind the majority of the feminine gender gravitating toward devoting their lives to their careers instead of carpools and play dates? Obviously they’re not. My grandma’s mentality is that by being a junior in college, I’m “running out of time to settle down.” Settle down?! I haven’t even started yet!

When all three singing groups join as the A Cappella Choir, they will sing “How Great Thou Art” and “Beautiful Savior.” The A Cappella Choir was organized by Luther T. Spayde in 1932, and he continued to conduct the choir until his death in 1972. The group has toured in some form since that first year. Currently the touring segment of the choir is the Chorale, this year comprising 29 students. Additional choirs have grown from the increasing number of talented and interested vocal students in recent years. This this year’s A Cappella Choir numbers nearly 100 students. Westfall has been its conductor since 2008. Atteberry joined the faculty in 2010.

“No, Grandma, I’m not a lesbian”

I love my grandma and respect her opinion. However, I had no choice but to shatter her dreams by informing her that my wedding would not be the next she would attend. When or if I do or no not choose to reproduce, does not determine my success or happiness. My point: all the people at the wedding portrayed having a boyfriend as a necessity, a material possession. My grandma sees it as a means of security. But, dolls, from what we’ve learned so far, we’re the only ones we can count on (except for Daddy.) My girlfriends are my security. If you give someone the key to your house, they can steal everything you own. How politely can I explain to Great Aunt Carolyn, who I’ve met twice in my life, that if I wanted a boyfriend, I would have one? I am not giving anyone a key until I find someone who’s worth the risk. Are there really that many perks of being tied down? Like occasionally going out to dinner,

where everything goes from my lips to my hips. Great, thanks for that. Carrying my stuff from the weekend at home from my car to my room? Thanks, but I need the exercise anyway. Being called “boo”? I didn’t even know people really said that. Waking up to a good morning smiley face text? Barf. Having someone pay for me and carry things all the time makes me feel helpless. Sure I like gifts occasionally as much as the next girl, but I would rather buy myself something that I want because I can and I deserve it. Don’t get me wrong; I appreciate some aspects of chivalry. For example, if you deliberately let the door slam in my face, I will judge you and tell all my friends about it. My lesson I’ve learned this week is that just because I’m not on the prowl for a boyfriend or a potential husband, apparently I’m a lesbian. It’s not my fault you wear Capri pants and you’re a dude.

Sherman’s recruits ambitious to pull CMU out of cellar By GREG JACKSON FAYETTE ADVERTISER SPORTS EDITOR

Many basketball coaches dream of winning their final game of the season. It often signifies they’ve won a national championship, at whatever level of collegiate athletics. Central Methodist head coach Jeff Sherman discovered one of the exceptions to that theory last season. While his Eagles’ basketball team won its final two games, CMU’s conference record wasn’t good enough to crack the top eight in the HAAC, which is necessary to qualify for the conference tournament. After reaching the NAIA National Tournament in back-to-back seasons, the Eagles were finished before the end of February. The 2011-12 Eagles team will have plenty of fresh faces, and while it may be a stretch for this team to return to the NAIA Tourna-

ment for a third time in four years, at least getting back to the HAAC Tournament is an obtainable goal. “We’ve got a talented group,” Sherman said. “So once we can piece everything together and get a little confidence built up, I think we’ve got a nice ballteam. We only have two seniors, so we’re pressed for them not to get discouraged early if we’re not one of the better teams.” This preseason, the Eagles have already played in two scrimmages. The first one went well at Missouri Western State University, Sherman said. The two teams played five quarters, with the Griffons winning three and the Eagles two. The second one, at home at North Central Missouri College, didn’t go over as well against a lesser opponent. In three halves, the Pirates won two and the Eagles only one, although

CMU scored the most total points. Taking a look at this team, after finishing 11-19 last season, Sherman only returns three of his top 10 scorers and will be looking for four new starters as well. CMU’s top three scorers last season — Jake Clark, Tyler Bredehoeft and Curtis Smith — were all seniors and averaged more than 10 points per game. Despite losing seven seniors, Sherman said he’s brought in recruits that are more talented than the players the Eagles lost. But of the few returners, one has a chance this season to become the first player under Sherman to play in three NAIA Tournaments. That opportunity is available for senior Mike Regan, who is the Eagles’ top returning scorer with 8.0 points per game. Sherman told his team about this trivia tidbit a few days ago and said it should give his se-

nior something to shoot for, seeing how a handful of All-Americans have been through the program and never accomplished such a feat. “What that says about Mike is he’s been in the program during some good times,” Sherman said. “I’m hopeful that he will have the leadership capabilities with that experience, that he can relay that on with this team and have his best year. He got to play varsity as a freshman and has played in some very big games for us, but his problem has been consistency.” Only one player who participated in the 2010 NAIA Tournament game is still on the CMU roster and that’s junior Eric Franklin. He will take the reins as the starting point guard after dishing out 54 assists last season and averaging 6.1 points per game, right behind Regan. Franklin didn’t suit up against

NCMC during the scrimmage and Sherman said there was a noticeable difference. “Even if he’s not on the floor, if he’s on the bench ready to go in, there’s still a sense of confidence with the rest of the players, knowing that he’s going to be there,” Sherman said. “Last year, he took it upon himself to inherit a lot of the (point guard) qualities, but he has been bothered with injuries ever since he’s been here. If Eric can stay healthy, he will be one of the better point guards in the conference, but he has to prove himself.” Sherman’s starting lineup will consist of three guards and two forwards this season. The other two starting guard positions will go to junior transfer Robert Mason at the No. 2 spot, while senior Evan Lav-

Eagles beat Evangel for third straight win

The Central Methodist University football team rolled up 357 rushing yards as the Eagles won their third straight game with a 38-7 victory at Evangel University on Saturday afternoon. The Eagles scored 31 first-half points, including three rushing touchdowns, to take control of the game early. Senior Caleb Haynes scored his fourth rushing touchdown of the season with a fiveyard run to cap a six-play, 38-yard drive. The PAT by freshman Ezequiel Rivera gave CMU a 7-0 lead with 9:09 left in the first quarter. After the CMU defense forced Evangel to lose eight yards on the Crusaders’ next possession and after a short punt out of bounds, CMU took over at the Evangel 38-yard line. The Eagles took ad-

vantage of the field possession and five plays later junior Burton Iosefa raced 16 yards for a touchdown. Rivera added the PAT to extend CMU’s lead to 14-0 with 3:49 left in the first quarter. The CMU defense forced another Evangel punt on the following drive, giving the Eagles the ball at their own 38-yard line. CMU drove the ball to inside the Evangel 15-yard line, but the Eagles had to settle for a field goal. Rivera connected on the 29-yard attempt with two seconds left in the quarter to make it 17-0 in favor of the Eagles. The Eagles added to their lead by scoring touchdowns on their first two possessions of the second quarter. Senior James Cody Jr. rushed for his fifth touchdown

of the season with a nine-yard run to finish a six-play, 57-yard drive early in the second quarter. Rivera’s PAT extended CMU’s lead to 24-0 with 11:17 left in the second quarter. After another Evangel punt, CMU drove 53 yards in 11 plays to take a 31-0 lead on a 23-yard touchdown pass from junior Bryant Jackson to senior Eric Carrillo and another PAT by Rivera. Aided by a pair of CMU penalties, the Crusaders ended the shutout by driving 65 yards in six plays for a touchdown to make the score 31-7 in favor of the Eagles with 2:15 remaining in the first half. Evangel opened the second half with a 68-yard drive deep into CMU territory that lasted nearly seven minutes, but the Eagle de-

fense held on fourth-and-8 to give CMU the ball back. After CMU was forced to punt, junior Jeremy Boyce grabbed his third interception of the season, giving the Eagles first down at the Evangel 30-yard line. On the next play, Jackson completed a pass to Haynes who ran to the Crusaders’ 1-yard line before fumbling. The fumble was recovered in the end zone by junior William Eichman in the end zone for a CMU touchdown. Rivera’s PAT was good to close out the scoring at 38-7 with 1:51 left in the third quarter. The Crusaders drove the ball deep into Eagle territory again early in the fourth quarter, but an Evangel fumble was recovered by senior John Ryan at the CMU 8-yard line. After CMU was

forced to punt, Evangel took over at its own 20-yard line. Two plays later, senior Tim Cummins forced another Crusader fumble and Boyce recovered near midfield. The Eagle offense finished with 410 total yards, including 357 yards rushing. Cody Jr. led CMU with 158 yards on 22 carries, while Iosefa ran for 126 yards on 15 carries, his fourth game of 100-plus rushing yards this season. It was the second time this season that the duo has rushing for more than 100 yards each in the same game. Jackson finished 2-for-5 passing for 53 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, CMU held the Crusaders to 249 yards of total offense on 65 plays. The Eagles

old left-hander as a smart player who has enough experience to be the backup at point guard as well, but his recent injury will narrow his opportunity down to playing the No. 3 guard position. “He’s another really good defender that we can put out with our top three guards, along with Eric and Robert,” Sherman said. “That will be about as good a defensive trio as we’ve had, and you’ll see a lot of fun things when those guys are out on the court at the same time, from a defensive standpoint.” Regan will get the nod for one of the starting forward positions, mostly because of his experience. However, junior transfer Alex Barner out of Fort Scott CC is possibly the best all-around player because of his size (6-foot-4), ability to rebound and knack for the outside shot. Sherman said like the other transfers, he’s still learning the system, but once he understands it, Barner should be a big contributor, especially once the conference season picks up. Elliott Black, a junior transfer from William Woods University, appears to have locked down the fifth starting spot at the other forward position. At 6-foot-6, the pressure is on for Black to fill the void left by several departing forwards from last year’s team, which was noted when he was the first recruit signed for this year’s incoming class. After averaging 8.4 points per game for the Owls last year, he will play against his former team twice in the month of November. “Elliott is as strong a player as I’ve had for quite some time,” Sherman said. “I’d say he’s another Jake Clark. Jake was undersized in the post and Elliott’s a little bit bigger than Jake, but they’re both strong and they both run the floor very well for big men. Elliott will hold his own in our conference at the No. 5 spot. Sherman added another big man, 6-foot-8 junior Boshko Ognenovski, during the offseason as well. He said the big reason the Eagles were able to sign the Mace-

donia native is because each school he’s attended (State Fair Community College and Southwestern Assemblies of God University), the programs have had a new coach. As a result, the new coaches brought their players with them, leaving little playing time for Ognenovski. “He’s a late bloomer and didn’t start playing basketball until later in his career,” Sherman said. “He’s getting better hands and if his hands will come around, he’s going to be a guy who comes off the bench and give us some extra scoring and rebounding inside. So we’re pretty pleased about him.” Junior Derek Kitch, a Hallsville graduate, will also get some playing time as a forward this year. He saw action in 24 games last season and averaged just over two points per game, but his experience with Sherman’s system will help provide plenty of depth at the position, more than what CMU has had the past few years. Sherman said a couple of other newcomers will have to step up if this team’s going to be successful, but he also said they are not quite there yet. Junior Erick Roe, a transfer from Metropolitan Community CollegePenn Valley — along with Tillman — may be up there with Lavery as the team’s best three-point shooter, but he’s a spot-up shooter, not one who is going to come off a ballscreen and post up and shoot. Roe was also recruited heavily out of high school at West Platte, scoring more than 2,200 career points, and was named the team’s MVP at Penn Valley last season. Sherman said there’s no reason why he shouldn’t be capable of starting this season. Sophomore Josh Bailey out of Macon has added more to his 6-foot-3-inch frame since last year, when he picked up minimal playing time at the varsity level for the Eagles. Also, freshman Cody Anderson could see some time on the court as a point guard. Sherman said he will have to play when Franklin is out of the game. However, competing with him for

playing time is freshman Anthony Senevey, who was an All-State player for Linn last year. Although he’s played mostly against smaller schools, Sherman says the 5-foot11 guard doesn’t back down from anything. Defensively, the Eagles look to be more aggressive, but it will vary on which five players are on the court. Sherman said the team’s success will depend on how his players match up against opponents, but with a variety of players filling roles, CMU can counter either a quicker or a bigger team. On offense, CMU has the potential to be as exciting as it has in the past. Sherman would have to take a shot in the dark to guess who his top scorer is going to be this season, saying that it could be one of four players he expects to score in double figures. As he does every season, Sherman’s schedule is loaded with quality opponents during the nonconference season. William Jewell, now an NCAA Division II program, remains on the schedule and the Eagles have an exhibition against the University of Central Missouri coming up in a few weeks. The Eagles have also made a trip out of their games over Thanksgiving breaks and this year they are headed to California to play Azusa Pacific University, ranked No. 9 in the NAIA. He was planning to take his team to a Los Angeles Clippers basketball game while they were in California, but the NBA lockout won’t allow that to happen. “Since I’ve been here at Central, we’ve been to 30-plus states,” Sherman said. “We’ve never been to California. I’ve been wanting to go to California for the past five years. Our first goal was to play a Division I team while we were out there. We kept trying and trying and trying, but we couldn’t get the dates to work out.” But the Eagles will play a Division I opponent in mid-December, and this one hits close to home for Sherman. CMU will play an exhibition game at Northwestern State University in Louisiana, where his

son, Matt Sherman, is in his second year as a graduate assistant. It will mark the first time the two Shermans will be on opposite benches at a basketball game, but Dad doesn’t even try to look at it that way. “I think that’s probably going to happen a number of times if I stay in coaching for very long,” Sherman said. “You see so many fathers and sons together. If I stay in head coaching long enough, there’s a good chance we’re going to work together somewhere down the line. I think it’s more fun for him to get a chance to see his former team.” Matt Sherman’s former team was ranked fifth in the HAAC coaches preseason poll with 44 points. Although Evangel University received the most first-place votes, MidAmerica Nazarene University was picked first with 75 points. Benedictine College came in third and Missouri Valley College is just ahead of CMU in fourth place. “I think there are a couple of teams who were picked pretty low that I think are pretty good,” Sherman said. “Avila and Graceland are both teams who gave us fits last year. MidAmerica has had the best recruiting year and they also have the most players returning. There’s a legit reason why they’re picked to win the conference.” The Eagles may be led by seven top players, but Sherman said it’s going to take effort from everyone to climb out of the cellar and prove last year was just a down year. “This could be a fun year, but it will also be a year where we have to rebuild ourselves to get back on top,” Sherman said. “We have to go out and prove it. We look so good some days in practice, but when we had our last scrimmage, we didn’t do it then. You have to do it on game night to make it work. Our motto this year is ‘Championship Effort: Every Day at Everything.’” And Sherman pointed out to his players if you’re going to win your last game of the season, do it in Kansas City at the NAIA Tournament.

ery will handle the No. 3 position to begin the year. However, the twoare interchangeable at those positions. Mason, who came to CMU from Fort Scott Community College, is a 6-foot-2-inch guard who averaged 11.5 points per game last season, despite mostly playing as point guard. He may see some time as point guard this year, but at the start of the season, he’ll play at a position that suits him better. “He’s a good athlete and a very good shooter,” Sherman said. “He’s got good quickness and can be a good defender. The thing about Robert right now is he’s pretty good off the dribble and a much better defensive player (than Lavery).” Lavery, on the other hand, had high expectations at the start last year and was the heir apparent to Matt Sherman when it came to shooting from three-point range. However, like much of CMU’s roster last season, Lavery was hampered by injuries and played in less than half of the Eagles’ games. In hindsight, Sherman said they probably rushed him back to the court too soon. “Evan’s probably our best shooter,” Sherman said. “It’s just ever since he’s been here, the thing that has held him up has been nitpicky injuries, but last year he had a major one. He was our starting No. 2 guard the very first game of the year and then he ended up missing the rest of the first semester.” While Lavery will be the starter at the No. 3 position this weekend when the Eagles open the season against Park University on Friday and St. Louis Christian College on Saturday in the MidAmerica Nazarene Tip-Off Classic, he be in fierce competition for the spot when sophomore transfer Melvin Tillman returns from an ankle injury. Although the diagnosis has not yet been determined, Sherman said it could be a tendon strain, but they won’t know for sure until the swelling goes down. Sherman described the 25-year-

forced three turnovers in the game. Junior Mitchell Swan had a seasonhigh eight tackles to lead CMU. Cummins added seven, while seniors Brett Fitchpatrick and Matt Fraley finished with six tackles each. Fraley and junior Trevor Robinson each recorded a sack in the game. The sack against Evangel was Robinson’s ninth of the season, setting a new single-season record. The previous record for sacks in a

season was eight set by Justin Wisdom in 2007. CMU improved to 5-3 on the season and in the Heart of America Athletic Conference with the win, guaranteeing that the Eagles will finish at least .500 for just the fourth time in the past 20 years. The Eagles will return to action with a non-conference game at NCAA Division I-FCS Southeast Missouri State University on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. in Cape Girardeau.

Progress on local streets, bridges Contractors for the Missouri Department of Transportation remove the top layer of asphalt on North Church Street last week just north of the campus. Resurfacing of Church Street (Highway 240) through Fayette now is complete. And on Nov. 2 with

little fanfare, MoDOT opened the two new bridges south of town on Hwy. 240 which have replaced narrow, deteriorating bridges that had been in service since 1931. There is also now a left-turn lane into Hwy. 124 just past the second bridge.

Lady Eagles fall short in upset bid CMU’s women’s basketball team pushed NAIA No. 23 William Woods University to the limit, but the Lady Eagles fell short of the upset in a 5551 overtime loss to the Owls Tuesday night. CMU had several opportunities down the stretch to win, but head coach James Arnold was still optimistic after the game. “The most encouraging thing for me is we really didn’t play that well and we’re still playing without probably our leading scorer (Sami Dunger),” Arnold said in a phone interview. “It’s a process and tonight was a big step forward. It’s tough to swallow when you have tons of opportunities, but the important thing is this was against a program that’s been to the NAIA National Tournament. I thought we played a ‘C’ game and had to chance to beat a team that’s pretty darn good.” William Woods jumped out to an early 9-2 lead before senior Catherine Kyle made a layup and free throw to cut the lead to 9-5. The Owls went on a 6-2 run to take their largest lead of the game at 15-7 with 9:18 left in the

first half. Junior Raylyn Nuss made four of her first five three-point attempts to help the Lady Eagles outscore William Woods during the rest of the half, sending CMU to halftime with a 29-27 deficit. CMU took its first lead of the game less than four minutes into the second half at 31-29. William Woods quickly answered with a basket to tie the game. Two possessions later, Nuss made back-to-back three-pointers to put the Lady Eagles up 38-32 with 12:15 remaining in the game. CMU extended its lead to eight on a basket by Kyle on the next possession. “Raylyn Nuss played awesome,” Arnold said. “What’s gotten overlooked is when Raylyn Nuss was on (Sharron Andrews), she didn’t do much. She played 39 minutes and did a good job offensively.” With eight minutes remaining William Woods battled back to tie the game at 42-42. The two teams traded points the remainder of regulation and William Woods tied the score at 4949 by making one of two free throws with 39 seconds left. CMU’s final shot with less than 10 seconds remaining

was off the mark, sending the game to overtime. In overtime, Williams Woods took the lead for good at 51-49 with 3:12 left. CMU made it 53-51 on a basket by sophomore Sara Wagner with 24 seconds left in overtime, but the Owls made a pair of free throws to make it 55-51 and CMU’s missed its final two shot attempts as William Woods held on for the win. CMU shot 33.3 percent for the game compared to 29.3 percent for William Woods. Both teams shot identical from the foul line — 7-for15 — for 46.7 percent. William Woods finished with a 52-45 edge in rebounding, including 24 offensive rebounds. The difference in the game was points off turnovers, as William Woods forced the Lady Eagles to commit 24 turnovers. “The turnovers were a problem. They were the stat of the night,” Arnold said. “When we turn the ball over, we don’t get a chance to put shots up.” Nuss led all scorers with 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting, including 6-of-9 from three-point range.

ELECTION ANALYSIS: CMU student looks at recent developments By TYLER J. WINN Collegian Reporter

Just two weeks ago the GOP class looked stronger than ever. Perry had finally shown up in a debate, Cain had soared in the polls, Obama’s approval ratings kept going down, and Occupy Wall Street was being overrun by viral embarrassments. Then the GOP primary decided to get in the Halloween spirit and

scare its supporters away. Michelle Bachmann was told by her own Tea Party to drop out of the primary race, Ron Paul is planning on ending student loans, and Mitt Romney is still well Mitt Romney. None of them could hold a jacko-lantern though to Rick Perry and Hermann Cain. Hermann Cain started the Race to Scare with releasing his plan for an electric fence at the Mexican Border that would kill anyone who tried to cross it,

which he then said was a joke, unless you like the idea then it was not a joke. Confused? Yeah, so were all of us. Rick Perry followed it up with the unveiling of his flat tax system and took off to New Hampshire to propose his plan to the people. Either Perry arrived at this speaking engagement under the influence or he hired Charlie Sheen to be his new speech writer. One of the quotes was “Live free or die!

Victory or Death! Bring it!” If you have not seen the video look it up on YouTube and you will understand. To wrap up the Halloween extravaganza though Cain decided to put the Race to Scare contest to rest. First he released a new campaign ad that featured his campaign manager lighting up a cigarette during the commercial and now he has had three former employees accuse him of harassment during his times at

the National Restaurant Association. All while Obama continues to just wait until it the GOP primary field destroys itself, one at a time. He continues to push his new job programs trying anything to get unemployment numbers to drop before the general election. In the end the GOP handily won the Halloween holiday but it will be interesting now to see who will be giving thanks when Thanksgiving rolls around.
