FOIA request for LaBelle, CMU lawsuit denied By Ben Solis University Editor

A Freedom of Information Act request filed by Central Michigan Life asking for a copy of a legal settlement between Central Michigan University and LaBelle Limited Partnership was denied by the Office of General Counsel. CM Life requested the settlement information after learning both parties had reached an outof-court settlement on a lawsuit filed after failed attempts to construct an on-campus hotel near or around Kelly/Shorts Stadium. The Office of General Counsel cited attorney-client communications as its reason for denying the public records request. In response, CM Life has filed new FOIA requests to obtain a copy of the settlement and any other court documents related to the settlement and for copies of any financial expenditures paid to LaBelle as part of the settlement. Plans for a LaBelle hotel were dismantled when the board of trustees approved moving the hotel to a different location on campus, which was not part of the original verbal agreement between LaBelle and former University President Leonard Plachta, said President George Ross at the Dec. 5 board of trustees session. The arrangement ended in a lawsuit between CMU and LaBelle that was dismissed, appealed and settled out of court. During their Dec. 5 meeting, the trustees approved a $175,000 30-year land lease allowing construction of a proposed six-story Courtyard by Marriot hotel near or around Kelly/Shorts Stadium. The new hotel arrangements were reported to be between CMU and Mount Pleasant Hospitality, a company also known as Lodgco. University officials, including Ross and Steve Smith, director of Public Relations, told CM Life that a “gentlemen’s agreement” was also reached between CMU and LaBelle regarding the release of any information regarding their lawsuit. The “gentlemen’s agreement” stated if any member of the student or professional press wanted to view or keep a copy of the settlement agreement, they could do so by sending a FOIA request to the university’s General Counsel, Smith said. CM Life sent an initial FOIA request on Jan. 26 which requested the final agreement. The request was received by General Counsel the next day, Jan. 27. A denial of request letter dated Feb. 4 was subsequently sent back and was received by CM Life in mid-February. According to the Michigan Constitution, Article Nine, Section 23, the public has the right to view or request copies of checks or expenditures paid using public monies through FOIA requests. Besides the cited exemption, Mary Roy, CMU’s Freedom of Information officer, wrote that the university sent a copy of the final agreement to CM Life on Dec. 5. CM Life has received no such document. university@cm-life.com

Obama’s Ann Arbor speech highlights challenges for young Americans, college students By John Irwin Senior Reporter

ANN ARBOR — Matt Roughton is worried about how his children will be able to pay for college. Roughton, 52, was among dozens who gathered along East Hoover Avenue in Ann Arbor on Wednesday to watch President Barack Obama and his motorcade drive by before and after his speech at the University

of Michigan’s Intramural Building. With tuition rates continuing to skyrocket nationwide, and fewer jobs available to pay for it, the Ann Arbor resident and father of two is worried about how he will be able to get them through college. “College is important, but it’s concerning that college is becoming so expensive,” he said. “We’re asking kids now to work through college and graduate in four or five years, but

that’s impossible when there are so few jobs.” Obama was in Ann Arbor to push for an increase in the federal minimum wage from its current $7.25 status to $10.10 per hour. His speech was geared toward people like Roughton’s daughters, who are concerned about their futures as student loan debt rises and well-paying jobs struggle to come back. He spent much of the speech

criticizing congressional Republicans for failing to get behind a minimum wage increase, pointing to polls that indicate as much as 75 percent of Americans support an increase. “(A wage increase) would lift millions of people out of poverty right away,” Obama said. “You would think this would be a no-brainer, politically.” w obama | 7

Union Township trustees address corruption complaints By Amanda Brancecum Staff Reporter

Pay rates and the attendance policy for the Union Township Board of Trustees were heavily discussed in a Wednesday workshop meeting after complaints of corruption from residents. Meeting pay is a small, but important part of the more than $10 million budget. Funding for the budget comes from the near 11,000 Union Township residents’ tax dollars. Past and present trustees have been accused of poor attendance at meetings, one of the main calls for a deduction in pay. A main concern among the board members was preventing abuse of the policy, which Trustee Tim Lannen said has been in place for more than seven years. “I have seen it abused,” said Trustee Bryan Mielke. “I have seen members ... during their lame duck sessions suddenly start attending meetings for five minutes and then they would leave. I haven’t seen anybody here doing it, but I have seen it in the past.” One of the residents viewed the tape from the last meeting and gave some feedback to Trustee Phil Mikus regarding pay. “It seems quite clear that two new board members, Bryan (Mielke) and Roger (Hauck), found a loophole in the meeting policy,” Mikus said. “The loophole being that our policy states that we, as board members, can attend meetings that we are eligible

to attend. (There is) no definition of eligibility.” Board of Trustees Supervisor Russ Alwood said he turns in only some documents for meeting pay from the ones he attends because he feels he is constantly in meetings. The township does not have defined hours of work for its employees. With the position being part-time,

Alwood said he doesn’t know when members have working days or time off. Mikus proposed an 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. shift for their regular township business hours. In the draft of the meeting pay policy, this would mean the township supervisor, clerk and treasurer would not receive any extra pay during those hours if at an extra meeting took place.

“The way our policy is, it states that all seven of us could go (to a meeting) and all seven of us could get paid,” Hauck said. “I just don’t see how anyone on this board thinks it’s in the best interest of our taxpayers to go to any board meetings that they want to when we can assign one board member to go to that meeting.” w union | 2

Lannen, who earned the most of the four trustees from extra meeting pay ($3,950), was against having just one person go to meetings. He said he doesn’t encourage limiting the opportunity for trustees to learn more about what is going on in the community through meetings for the planning and road commissions. “Nearly 50 percent of our residents are students,” Lannen said. “Limiting (trustees) would probably be the last thing I would want as a taxpayer to ask my board to do.” There are some trustees assigned to go to extra meetings, such as Alwood, who attends the road commission meetings, and Mielke, who is already part of the planning commission. “We don’t want to come down on anybody,” Mielke said. “We just want to maximize the bang of the buck for our taxpayers.” Mikus said he was happy with the policy introduced at the last meeting, as it could fill the loophole that was discovered. They added a specific definition in the revised meeting pay policy draft created by Mielke, Mikus and Hauck, which was introduced at the last regularly scheduled meeting Wednesday, March 26.

However, Lannen believes there is a good system of checks and balances already in place. “You guys (have) insurance,” said Mount Pleasant resident Edward Peters. “You’re getting a wage and a per diem. I know other people who were on the tribunal board. They never get paid. They do it because they want to help this community.”

Revised minutes for the workshop will be reviewed April 9 at the next Union Township meeting.

Elementary Evidence Children help CMU Police solve mock murder By Stephen Cross Staff Reporter

Madeline Lee solved her first murder before she could even drive a car. The 10-year-old and her classmates worked closely with the Central Michigan University Police Department and its forensics unit at the “Crime Scene at the Museum” mock investigation in Rowe Hall. “Looking at the bones outside and picking them up was so much fun,” Lee said. “We solved that murder and I even got my fingerprints taken by cops.” The crime scene program had children solve a phony murder using forensics Wednesday at the Museum of Cultural and Natural History in Rowe Hall. Tammy Draves, a teacher at Mount Pleasant Seventh-Day Adventist Elementary School, brought eight of her students to participate in the crime scene scenario. “I like the idea of my students learning how police do their jobs and having them realize that the police are here to help, not to be afraid of,” Draves said. “All kids love a mystery, and my students are having a blast.” Participants worked outside at the fake crime scene that contained the remains of a skeleton, pieces of evidence including a Styrofoam cup, a Pop Tart wrapper and CDs. The kids recorded the information in their investigation logs, and strapped on gloves to collect the remains and gather evidence to bring to the classroom lab to analyze. Dearborn Heights senior Kaitlyn

Schroeder developed the crime scene program last year, and offered an improved version Saturday. “I got the idea for the crime scene program from a disease class I took at CMU, and I used other, different ideas from an osteology and forensics class, too,” Schroeder said. “Seeing how much fun these kids have with it feels amazing.” The children were separated into three groups to work on the different forensic stations in a classroom lab to find out which of the provided suspects was the murderer. One of the groups analyzed the fingerprints they found on the CDs and the Pop Tart wrapper to match them to a suspect. They also had their own fingerprints taken with assistance from CMUPD Sgt. Mike Morrow and Officer Tim Prout. The second group worked on the skeleton analysis, organizing the bones to form a complete skeleton, comparing the bones to see what damage was dealt to the victim. The third group worked in the dentition area, where they analyzed the bite marks found on the Styrofoam cup and compared the bite marks with molds of the suspects’ teeth. Together, the children compared the evidence they found and worked cooperatively to solve the murder and pinpoint the victim through the use and analysis of forensic evidence. “It’s great to work with the kids to show them what we do,” Morrow said. “This is the fun part of the job.” metro@cm-life.com

CMED ‘patient’ program helps students diagnose illnesses By Mark Johnson Senior Reporter

Growing up, faking sick either got you out of school for a day or in a heap of trouble for attempting it. But for those hired by the College of Medicine to take part in the Standardized Patient Program, the fine art of faking symptoms of illness is helping students learn, work and interact with real human patients. Standardized patients are individuals paid by the school to portray a patient with some kind of sickness or other side effect. Students interact with the patient by interviewing them, and diagnosing the disease the patient might have. “Many students have not had any interactions with real patients in the real world, so this gives the students an opportunity to be face-to-face with somebody, who’s responsive to their questions, facial expressions and how they speak and phrase the questions,” said Nhu Dargis, director of the Standardized Patient Program. “The feedback they receive from the patient is from a different perspective than from what they would receive from an instructor.” Patients are hired through referral program and are paid $15 an hour to start, though some receive higher pay if they stay in the program long enough. Some patients refuse the pay because they are happy to help the students any way they can.

Before working in the program, they are hired on a temporary basis and go through an extensive training process. This training period teaches them how to mimic symptoms of a disease. Aside from practicing their interviewing skills, another key focus of the program is to help students learn how to administer physical exams, like taking a patient’s blood pressure, and to familiarize them with potential medical histories. The training facility for both the students and the patients is a replica of a working doctor’s office, with real medical equipment. Cameras capture the encounter between the students and patients so the footage can be reviewed later by the students and professor. Nico Conti, a first-year medical student from St. Clair Shores, is in a course titled “essentials of clinical skills,” which uses the Standardized Patient Program every other week. There are two parts to the program, Conti said. The first involves learning how to conduct medical exams from a group of physicians. Next, the medical students practice on each other, administering the examinations throughout the week. Students get to work with the standardized patients the following week. Conti said the program has been beneficial in terms of relating his course work to practical, hands-on skills.

Professor Sean Baker, who took a personal leave of absence after an intoxicated incident and a string of altercations with other journalism professors, is unlikely to make a return to teaching classes this semester. Journalism department officials said they were given notice that Baker would not return after his slated twoweek leave of absence “until further notice.” An email notifying professors of Baker’s status was sent out by Jiafei Yin, the chair of the department. According to the email, Baker’s status and future with the department is still unknown. Professors will be meeting with Salma Ghanem, dean of the College of Communications and Fine Arts, and Dennis Armistead, the director of faculty and employee relations in the Faculty and Personnel Services department, to discuss any updates available on the situation. “There is a process that we have to follow (when looking at professor conduct),” Ghanem said. “We haven’t had to do anything like this before, so we are doing our due diligence while also trying to protect the professor’s privacy.” Journalism professors were concerned about the lack of action to address Baker’s conduct as it progressed over the past few years, as well as concerns about the perceived unwillingness on Ghanem’s part to share all available information. Ghanem said she has tried to be in contact with professors as much as possible. Calls to Armistead to confirm whether Baker is under a formal inquiry or investigation of misconduct were not immediately returned before press time. The meeting with Armistead and Ghanem is scheduled for 2 p.m. on April 11.

Courtesy Photo | University of Communications Dr. Meredith Goodwin, assistant clinical professor and co-director of the essential skills course block, teaches medical students Magalie Bernardo, Patric Knecht and Shelby Reitzel how to preform a medical examination using “patients” faking illnesses.

“You retain and remember stuff a lot better when you are taking it out of context, rather than when someone is dictating to you what you should see, or say, or do,” he said. “It helps prepare us for what we will see in the future.” CMED professors share Conti’s sentiment, including Meredith Goodwin, associate clinical professor and co-director of the essential clinical skills course block. Goodwin teaches 64 students who use the program.

She teaches a class that uses the program and agrees the experience is much more valuable than learning the same subject matter in a classroom or a lecture hall. “By working with the standardized patients, we get an objective assessment of the students’ abilities,” she said. “Everybody is really enthusiastic about the program and the students really like it because it’s like being a real doctor.”

As spring approaches, fraternities and sororities at Central Michigan University get ready for one of their most anticipated events of the year: Greek Week. Scott Courter II, a program assistant for Greek Life, in the Office of Student Activities and Involvement, said this year’s chosen philanthropy is Special Olympics. Events for Greek Week 2014 begin Sunday. Signs promoting Greek Week and mock rock are being created to hang up around campus. There will be an all-Greek photo in McGuirk Arena at 6 p.m. on opening day. Penny Wars, the main fundraiser for the week, also begins Sunday. All pennies collected are positive points, while all dollars and other coins collected are negative points. On Monday, there will be a Special Olympics keynote athletic speaker at 7 p.m. in Plachta Auditorium. Tuesday’s event will be academic games at 7 p.m. in Plachta Auditorium. Courter said the games played will be much like “The Newlywed Game,” where paired fraternities and sororities have to correctly answer questions about their partner’s organization. Greeks will challenge each other’s athletic prowess during the athletic games at 6 p.m. Wednesday in McGuirk Arena. The long-awaited mock rock concludes the week at 6 p.m. on Friday in McGuirk Arena. All events are completely open to the public, and everyone is invited to come watch the Greeks compete. -Andrea Peck | Staff Reporter

EDITORIAL | Renewing an emphasis on safety, security

LOCK IT DOWN B

eyond expecting a quality education, students at Central Michigan University expect a

certain degree of security, privacy and safety. However, some recent events have caused a disconnect between that expectation and reality. Last year, a student was robbed of his wallet near parking lot 42 and 7-Eleven, a student was abducted at gunpoint outside of the Student Activity Center and several laptops were stolen from Cobb and Carey residence halls. This year, a homeless man was charged with larceny, trespassing and destruction of property after vandalizing — and living in — Finch Fieldhouse over the course of at least a couple of days. The man also stole a backpack full of equipment valued at around $400. CMU Police Chief Bill Yeagley epitomizes the attitudes surrounding our city. After the abduction in January, he said the scariest part of the incident was that nobody thinks these types of situations can happen.

MOUNT P L E A SA N T On

Students, how do you feel about security measures on campus?

Facebook Beau Christian Arlt: I would like to see more blue light emergency polls for individuals walking alone on campus. I think our school doesn’t provide enough emergency outlets that are distinctly clear and available.

Mount Pleasant and the CMU community need a reality check. While Mount Pleasant might be safer than many cities in Michigan, crime is inevitable. The common mindset that our community is excluded from the realities of the rest of the world is inaccurate and misleading. Although these crimes are not the fault of the victims, CMU and its students need to realize that the real world can oftentimes be a dangerous place. Every precaution should be taken to promote our personal safety. Ultimately, our personal security rests most heavily on our own shoulders. While our police department — with a high-response rate and an advanced surveillance system — provides comfort from the inescapable, the first step in preventing

crime is to recognize that it exists. All buildings on campus should incorporate a higher standard of security to protect our students. Although the residence hall checkin policy is useful for the evening hours, the majority of campus does not facilitate heightened safety measures. Western Michigan University, Grand Valley State University and Eastern Michigan University have implemented campus ID scanner systems for entry to residence halls. It’s time CMU does the same. CMUPD employs 20 police officers. Our on-campus population is 19,634 students. With no additional security presence on campus, that leaves each officer charged with protecting 982 students. More can be done to expand our security. While the homeless should never be able to camp out in university buildings and students shouldn’t live in fear of being kidnapped, it’s an unpleasant reality both our facilities and our students could — and should — be more prepared to face.

Christopher Lynn: It still blows my mind about that kidnapping that happened in the SAC parking lot. It just shows anything can go wrong on campus. It doesn’t take much — even if there are beefed up security measures.

Tiffany Frutchey: I feel pretty safe here. Maybe locks in the dorms could be better, but that’s a pretty small complaint. I do know I would be absolutely terrified if the students here were allowed to carry firearms.

Mount not-so-Pleasant In fall 2013, Central Michigan University’s on-campus undergraduate enrollment decreased from 18,686 students to 17,771. Many argue the university is to blame for the decrease in enrollment. I have to disagree. When I was contemplating which university I wanted to attend during my senior year, CMU’s rural location knocked it off my top-choice list. Mount Pleasant was a less-than-desirable location. I couldn’t see myself spending my undergraduate career here. It seemed like a small community and I wanted

a campus where I could explore diverse surroundings. When perspective college students visit CMU, they are left with an impression of Mount Pleasant largely defined by Mission Street. It’s busy, it’s impossible to make left turns on and it’s plastered with fast-food. It isn’t Mount Pleasant. I never knew there was a downtown Mount Pleasant until after I was already enrolled. There are many other entertaining activities and attractions that help define the city, but they remain largely out-of-view, hidden away from campus.

Madison Taylor Phillipich: Maybe add more cars and employees to Saferides so it doesn’t take an hour for you to get picked up. Sometimes they never even show up.

James WIlson Social Media Coordinator

When perspective students are given a campus tour, they are informed about the programs and awards each department has, but they don’t truly discover what Mount Pleasant can offer. Why don’t we inform our students that there are five golf courses? What about our 15 local parks? We even have a skydiving location 10 minutes from campus. Additionally, there are many restaurants downtown that are much more appetizing than Mission’s fast-food, including Dog

Dustin C Coulter: Students and staff with concealed pistol licenses should be able to carry their pistols while on campus.

Central, Camille’s on the River, Max & Emily’s Bakery and even a vegetarian/vegan restaurant with a full tea bar. What Mount Pleasant needs is an effective public relations team. Students need to know there is so much to do in Mount Pleasant other than getting drunk or gambling at Soaring Eagle. CMU and Mount Pleasant need to work together to promote the positive aspects of each. One cannot grow without the other. Maybe then, perspective students will really appreciate the city and again consider attending our university.

Students, community to support cancer survivors at ‘Relay for Life’ By Megan Pacer Senior Reporter

Illinois senior Jason Clements has been dedicated to “Relay for Life” for 15 years, when his sister was first diagnosed with cancer at the age of three. He was initially involved in his residence hall’s team, and has created his own team with a group of friends called the Zetterbeards. “I didn’t get involved with actually fundraising and everything until freshman year at Central (Michigan),” Clements said. “I look forward most to the luminaria ceremony because a lot of times I don’t take the time to think about how much cancer impacts everyone and impacts me, and how lucky I am that my sister is still alive and moving on with everything. That gives me a moment to put everything in perspective and really understand why I’ve been raising

money for months.” This year’s “Relay for Life” at Central Michigan University begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday in the Indoor Athletic Complex. Students, faculty, staff, and the community are invited to the life-saving tradition practiced across the country. The 24-hour event raises money for the American Cancer Society. Mackenzie Guest, a junior from Rockford, has been involved in “Relay for Life” for 14 years. Her mother was involved with the organization in her hometown since Guest was in grade school. Becoming a co-captain for her Larzelere Hall team her freshman and sophomore years at CMU was simply the next logical step. The Zetterbeards team will feature homemade smoothies and possibly a mini-stick hockey game at Relay to raise money. Those who attend Relay can expect to see the Zetterbeards

HOOP! THERE IT IS!

and other groups, registered student organizations and Greek organizations surrounding the track in the IAC. Relay is well-known for being a high-energy event, even into the early morning hours. “I like just seeing all the teams show up, and then seeing how their attitude at the beginning of the day and their attitude at 3:00 in the morning is exactly the same,” Guest said. “Everybody’s still got a smile on their face. It’s such a motivation at relay to keep pushing forward throughout the whole 24 hours.” In addition to the luminaria ceremony, the event will feature a Disney prince and princess competition, as well as a reflection presentation, during which patrons can share their stories of survival and support.

Members of the Central Michigan Life Advertising Department proved determination can surpass experience at this year’s College Newspaper Business and Advertising Managers convention. The team won first place for Best College Newspaper and 16 other awards for their mobile app, yearly sales increase and training program – and they did it with a predominately new group. “We had to train completely new staff,” said Julie Bushart, advertising manager and a Redford senior. “Everybody brought new, fresh ideas.” Having such a young staff allowed Bushart and the other managers to shape the school year in a way that could guarantee success.

University of Michigan students wave to President Barack Obama after his speech in the U-M Intramural Sports Building on Wednesday.

The president, speaking to a crowd of hundreds of mostly students, criticized Republicans for dismissing a wage increase as a benefit only for younger people. “We should be making it easier for your generation to grab a foothold on the ladder of opportunity,” Obama said.

Samantha Madar | Photo Editor President Barack Obama and Gary Peters, a representative for Michigan’s 14th congressional district, walk out of Air Force One on Wednesday at Willow Run Airport.

Earlier this year, the president signed an executive order raising the minimum wage for federal contractors to $10.10 per hour. “If you cook our troops’ meals, our country should pay you a living wage,” Obama said. The prospects of a federal minimum wage increase are up in the air, however, it stands a slim chance of passing the Republican-controlled House. In the Democratic Senate, moderate Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine is attempting to win over several Democrats on a compromise measure that increases the minimum wage by a smaller degree. Still, Obama urged Americans — especially younger people — to call their representatives and ask them to raise the minimum wage, and he called on businesses to raise their wages on their own. “Fair wages and higher profits aren’t mutually exclusive. They can go hand-in-hand. That’s what Henry Ford understood,” Obama said, referencing the automotive pioneer who paid his employees a thenunheard-of $5 per hour.

Obama took time to highlight other actions he has taken over the past five years that have impacted students, pointing to the student loan reform law he signed in 2009, which cut banks out of the federal loan process and capped many loan payments at 10 percent of a person’s income. He also attacked congressional Republicans for the budget written by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., that was unveiled Monday. Obama said it would drastically cut funds for educational programs, while providing tax relief for the top income brackets. “They do, to their credit, have one original idea, and that is to repeal Obamacare,” he said sarcastically. “Because they haven’t tried that 50 times.” Obama highlighted his signature legislative accomplishment as a way his administration has worked to create “opportunity for all” by creating access to quality health care. “We believe everyone should have a chance,” Obama said. metro@cm-life.com

Many Republicans and conservative groups have called a minimum wage increase dangerous for a still-fragile economy. Michigan Chamber of Commerce Director of Health Policy and Human Resources, Wendy Block, said similar increases being pushed for by Democrats in the state legislature would place an unfair burden on many businesses. “Our members don’t need the government to tell them to pay their workers a good wage,” Block said, adding that businesses already pay their workers as much as they can because that is the best way to stay competitive. She said a nearly 40-percent mark-up in the minimum wage could “strangle economic growth in the state” as it recovers from the Great Recession, which Michigan received the brunt of. “Many members are still struggling with the costs of government-mandated health care, otherwise known as Obamacare,” Block said, referencing the Affordable Care Act. “They don’t need another government mandate.” The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office issued a report in February that painted a mixed picture on a $10.10 minimum wage. It estimated it would lift about 900,000 Americans out of poverty, but it would also cost the economy an estimated 500,000 jobs. While warning a minimum wage increase would not solve all the country’s economic problems, Obama said upping the minimum wage would help to create “opportunity for all.” “Nobody who works full-time should be raising their family in poverty,” Obama said to loud applause. “That’s what’s happening right now all across the country.”

Gymnastics team has ‘best chance’ to advance to nationals Saturday By Taylor DeOrmeau Staff Reporter

“Every tenth, every turn, every routine, we fight.” Senior Emily Heinz leads this chant before every meet. “Basically (it means) that every tenth, every quarter-tenth counts, so we’re going to fight for everything so we don’t give anything away,” Heinz said. No. 18 gymnastics hopes the “fight” will help them advance to nationals for the first time in school history. Central Michigan will need to fight for every tenth of a point in Saturday’s regional to takedown either host No. 6 Georgia or No. 7 Michigan if it wants to advance. The chant is based on the rallying cry from the movie “Red Tails” and finishes with a call and response of ‘we fight.’ Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade used a similar motivation when his team trailed the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 NBA Finals. While head coach Jerry Reighard has helped CMU to a record-setting 15 Mid-American Conference championships in his 30 seasons, he has never made it to nationals. “I think it would be, in my career as a coach, certainly a capstone of my career,” Reighard said. “(It’s) something that I’ve strived to attain year after year.”

Reighard said this year is the best chance the Chippewas have had to advance to nationals since 2003, when they missed out due to a tiebreaker. “Actually, I think this is a better chance for us,” Reighard said. “I really feel that top to bottom, depthwise, this team is a better team. But that 2003 team was not to be denied. From top to bottom they came out with a little fire in their gut and it paid off.” The top two teams from Saturday’s regional in Athens, Ga. will advance to the national championships April 1820 in Birmingham, Ala. CMU follows in seeding behind Georgia and Michigan. No. 22 Ohio State, North Carolina State and Rutgers will be the other three teams at regionals. “I feel fairly confident that both Georgia and Michigan are going to be in that 197 range,” Reighard said. “The score that we had at our championship meet isn’t going to move us on and we’re going to have to be even better than that. We have got to be pushing the 197 envelope to even be in the running.” CMU has scored more than 197 twice in school history, the last time being in the 2004 MAC championships. Georgia has finished first or

Georgia and Michigan rank sixth and seventh in vaulting nationally with CMU and NC State coming in at 22nd and 23rd. Michigan’s Austin Sheppard is the favorite to win the event individually, as she ranks second in the nation. CMU sophomore Kirsten Petzold is the top Chippewa on vault, ranked 33rd in the country.

Georgia has the seventh and ninth best gymnasts on beam in the country, but CMU junior Taylor Noonan is close behind in 17th. Michigan lurks one spot behind CMU on beam, just .005 behind, according to the Regional Qualifying Score.

Georgia is the top-ranked bars team in the nation, averaging a 49.485 for the season. They have five individuals in the Top 25 nationally, including two gymnasts tied for second. While CMU sits fourth out of the six teams at regionals, they’re coming off their best performance of the season on bars with a 49.475.

second at regionals every season in program history, dating back to 1984 and has won 10 NCAA national championships. Michigan has finished first or second at regionals 15 of the past 17 years. Reighard said one of the toughest aspects Saturday will be proving to the judges that CMU is worthy of being mentioned with teams like Georgia and Michigan. “I think there’s a little more respect (for Georgia) than the unknown factor of Central Michigan,” Reighard said. “I really feel like that’s going to be our biggest battle. The faster we can convince the judges that we are a quality program, the better the scores are going to climb for us.” Heinz and senior Brittany Petzold have been to regionals the past three years with CMU, but they believe this is the best chance they have had to advance. “This is the first time since we’ve been here that I think we can go to nationals,” Heinz said. “Last year we talked about it, but we still had those doubts. This year, I have no doubts we can beat Michigan or Georgia or both.” The meet will start at 4 p.m. Saturday and can be watched live at georgiadogs.com. sports@cm-life.com

Michigan is fourth in the country on floor, with Georgia and CMU coming in at 10th and 13th. Michigan’s Joanna Sampson is the only gymnast ranked higher than CMU junior Halle Moraw in Saturday’s regional. Sophomore Taylor Bolender also has a shot at the title, tied for 23rd in the country.

Baseball carries undefeated MAC record into Buffalo home series By Kristopher Lodes Staff Reporter

Baseball hopes to keep one streak alive after another was snapped Wednesday. After losing to Michigan, ending seven-straight wins, Central Michigan hopes to keep its unbeaten Mid-American Conference record this weekend against Buffalo. “We’ll focus on (Buffalo) when we get back (to Mount Pleasant),” said head coach Steve Jaksa following the 6-3 loss to the Wolverines. “By (Thursday), it’ll be time to turn the page on to the weekend against Buffalo.” The Bulls have improved in recent years, going from 10-16 in MAC play in 2012 to 19-7 last season. As a team, they are in the top five in the MAC in slugging percentage, on-base percentage, triples, home runs, sacrifice flies and are patient at the plate with 104 walks (No. 4 in the MAC). In pitching, Buffalo is No. 3 in team ERA at 4.05, two spots behind CMU at 2.66. Opposing batters are hitting a MAC-worst .231 against Buffalo with 164 hits and 87 runs earned, No. 2 in the

MAC behind the Chippewas (70). “We know Buffalo pretty good,” Jaksa said. “We know they’ve got a good ball club and I’m excited we’re going to (be)playing at home again this weekend.” With the three-game weekend series, CMU wraps up a five-game week. The bullpen has seen increased innings of work this week, though Jaksa said it’s a reality of the game. “You have to be able to handle the highs and lows of a game,” he said. “We play mid-week games every year and we have to look (at) what happened in those games and strike to improve from them.” Jaksa hopes to see an improved effort on defense this weekend. The Chippewas recorded six errors in two games this week, resulting in nine unearned runs. “That’s the key,” Jaksa said. “How do you get better when you’re playing one or two mid-week games?” sports@cm-life.com

HOROSCOPE By Nancy Black Tribune Content Agency (MCT) Today’s Birthday (04/04/14). Happiness shines brighter than silver this year. Compassion with community enlivens you. Education and communication skills further your career, with extra points for artists of all media. Creativity comes easy. Home is where your heart is, with family and friends. Balance work with romance over springtime, then play full out over summer. An autumn revelation provides freedom, innovation and integrity. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) -- Today is a 7 -Prioritize talk over action. Tell imaginative stories. Entertain and inform. Reality interferes with fantasy, however. All isn’t as it appears. Emotions prevail where logic fails. Cut to basics... aim for simplicity. Organize and plan who’s doing what over a shared meal. Enjoy fun with friends. Taurus (April 20-May 20) -- Today is a 6 -Discover a way to work smarter and earn more. Connections, communications and clever ideas win profit. Streamline procedures and routines to save time. Pay off bills before spending on frills. Put in extra work for high quality results. Dress up for a fun social event. Gemini (May 21-June 20) -- Today is a 6 -- A little illusion goes a long way to spark emotions. Build this for promotions. Avoid travel, big launches or transportation. More work is required. Stay where you are and increase productivity. Long-distance communication provides the info you need. Teleconferencing saves time and money. Cancer (June 21-July 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Think, plan and research. Hunt for inspiration. Write, record and brainstorm. Satisfy your curiosity. Make a list of potential costs. Your skill at pinching pennies comes in handy. Avoid gambles or risk. Do your homework to meet deadlines. Be sensitive to another’s view. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Enter a two-day party phase, and get involved with your community. Your friends are there for you. Hold meetings, collaborate and throw ideas around. Respectfully abandon a scheme lacking soul (or advise another to do so). Have fun while contributing for a good cause. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Con-

sider new opportunities today and tomorrow. Trust emotion over rationality. Go with your feelings and intuition. There could be a test. Upon winning, new responsibilities raise your stature. Choose a direction that’s grounded in reality, even as you aim for the stars. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Reduce speculation by announcing your plan. Today and tomorrow begin an expansion phase. Include travel and fun in the agenda. Make a promise, and put it in your schedule. Take a bold step, supported by friends. Take it slow. Get yourself a treat. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Today is a 6 -- Support a partner with financial paperwork like insurance or taxes. Every little bit counts. Consider practical details. Today and tomorrow favor financial review to save money. Make sure funds are there to cover upcoming events. A little planning goes a long way. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Today is a 7 -- Partnership and negotiation take priority today and tomorrow. Consult with experts on strategy. It’s easier to delegate; someone else on the team wants to be more directive. Pay attention to all offers. A caring soul has a fresh perspective on a big decision ahead. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Today is an 8 -- There’s plenty of work... you’re extra busy and things could seem hectic or intense. Rely on your schedule, and move items forward as needed. Creative ideas abound, and you’re in the thick of the excitement. Take frequent deep-breathing breaks, or go for little walks. Stay frugal and focused. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Today is a 7 -- Go back to basics, and follow the rules. Abandon far-out ideas, and go for low-hanging fruit. Confer with your team. You get some good press. A barrier is dissolving, or becoming unimportant. Set long-term goals with your sweetheart today and tomorrow. Attitude is everything. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Today is a 7 -- Today and tomorrow favor making household decisions and changes. You and your partner have the energy for it now. Imagine sharing your cozy home with friends and family, and clean up with that vision. Play music that makes you dance. Snuggle into your lovelier space tonight.
