Budget, CMED East top trustees’ agenda Board to vote on budget that’s $1 million smaller than last year By Neil Rosan Staff Reporter
A proposed $440.7-million budget for the 2014 fiscal year and formal approval of the College of Medicine East campus in Saginaw will be discussed Thursday when the Central Michigan Board of Trustees holds its quarterly meeting. The proposed budget has been cut from the $441-million budget
unveiled from last year’s budget and will once again rely on the use of reserve accounts. “Colleges and service units will use some of their one-time carryforward funds from years to offset the shortage” created by a decline in fall enrollment, the university said in a news release. CMU anticipates a 5-7 percent drop in on-campus undergraduate enrollment, which is expected to
cause a $12 million general fund deficit and a $6 million auxiliary fund deficit, according to an email sent out to faculty and staff last month. Additionally, the board will vote on final approval of the College of Medicine Saginaw Phase I facility, a two-story, 52,100-square-foot structure which will be built on the campus of Covenant HealthCare. The project will cost $25.2 million, and funding will come from CMU reserve funds, CMU medical educational partners and fundraising. In May, the board met
for a special, one-item meeting where the final $350,000 was approved for the planning of the project. The CMED East facility will serve as a place for CMED students to complete their residencies in their third and fourth years of medical school. The board will also consider a project in collaboration with the city of Mount Pleasant to connect East Campus Drive to Mission Street. The board will meet at 8:30 a.m. Thursday at the President’s Conference Room on the second
HOW CAN YOU FIX CMU’S FALLING ENROLLMENT NUMBERS? “If you look carefully, it’s not every college that’s down. It’s not every major that’s down. So, you have to look at where the opportunities are to expand the growing majors and to look at the majors that are down. Does it mean that a major no longer needs to be here? It’s finding those right niches. “
floor of the Bovee University Center. Additionally, two committee meetings, which will also take place in the President’s Conference Room, will take place Wednesday afternoon. Trustees will discuss the university’s enrollment management plan during the Academic and Student Affairs Committee meeting at 3:45 p.m. and the proposed KellyShorts Stadium hotel project at the Finance and Facilities meeting at 2:30 p.m. email@example.com
CMU looks to expand out-of-state recruitment By Neil Rosan Staff Reporter
Central Michigan University wants to build its in-state and national reputation to reverse a steep decline in enrollment over the past several years. The university is looking to out-of-state students, financial aid reform and bridge programs to counteract a projected 5-7 percent drop in on-campus undergraduate enrollment from fall 2012 to fall 2013, Vice President of Enrollment and Student Services Steven Johnson said. A drop in Michigan high school graduates is partly to blame. “The lack of high school graduates is a big part of the falling numbers, Steven Johnson but it is driven by the major relocation out of the Midwest. If we don’t have families staying in the area, there won’t be as many kids staying in the area to take advantage of the state’s educational opportunities,” Johnson said . “What we have to do is not just see ourselves as an only Michigan-based institution, but understand that we have to expand our regional and national footprint so we can attract a good amount of out of state students.” In an email to CMU staff and faculty late last month, University President George Ross’ office announced undergraduate enrollment is expected to drop by 5-7 percent next semester from last year, resulting in an estimated $18 million in total debt for the 2014 fiscal year. In response, Johnson said CMU will spend its marketing into Texas, Florida and Georgia, among other states. “We are always going to primarily be a Michigan school, but what we want to do is have a greater representation of out of state students on campus and global campus,” Johnson said. “We want to be able to get the word out and let people know about the value of Central Michigan University and its quality

As Michael Gealt prepares to take over as Central Michigan University’s provost in August, campus officials are looking to challenges that might lie beyond his hiring. Fostering working relationships between university administration and the school’s academic division, consisting of nine colleges including the College of Medicine to be opened this fall, is vital for Gealt as he takes over for retiring Provost Gary Shapiro on Aug. 1. While relationships between faculty and administration have shaky over the past several years, instructors hoped that Gealt’s extensive background in academics will lead the charge toward better communication throughout the inner workings of the university. “He’s not going to walk in here and everyone will trust him,” psychology professor Timothy Hartshorne said. “He needs to prove that he supports faculty concerns. He needs to continue the work of healing.” Referring to a one-day faculty work stoppage three years ago when contract negotiations between CMU administration and the Faculty Association broke down, Hartshorne said that the former Dean of Science at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock must maintain a “faculty perspective” when serving next year as leader of CMU’s academics. “Coming out of our last negotiation, there’s much more tension than before,” Hartshorne said. “If we see him going in a direction that we don’t want, he needs to persuade us that he still has our best interests at heart. He needs to remember where he came from in terms of being a biology professor. I have high hopes for him.” Hartshorne worked as co-chair, along with Dean of Communication and Fine Arts Salma Ghanem, of a 14-person search committee consisting of faculty and other academic officials that selected Gealt for the position last spring. With CMED opening in August, Hartshorne was wary that Gealt will have more on his plate than the typical provost. He said medical schools usually report to their own provost but at CMU, there is only one. “He’s going to have his hands full with CMED,” Hartshorne said. “Usually medical schools are separate, but here, it’s combined under one provost. That’s something most provosts don’t have to deal with.” Some faculty expressed concern that Gealt’s background might cause him to lean toward the areas he’s most familiar with, denying attention to such fields as the social sciences and fine arts. “My hope for the new Provost is that he will equally engage and support the faculty of not just the natural sciences and medical school where he is comfortable, but faculty in the rest of the university,” said political science instructor James Hill. “Faculty and administrative relations remain strained. A lot of bridge building is still needed.” A GEALT | 2 PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY SHANNON MILLARD/STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER

CMU suspends three students in connection to fires at end of spring semester By John Irwin Editor-in-Chief
Five Central Michigan University students have been identified by the Office of Student Conduct in connection to the furniture and couch fires that rocked Mount Pleasant last May. Three of those students have been suspended, and the other two students could face disciplinary action in the future. Director of Student Conduct Tom Idema said he could not disclose the names of the students and other details related to the suspensions because they are protected by the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. Idema said his office has worked closely with the Mount Pleasant Police Department and
other law enforcement authorities in investigating the fires and any student connections. “We’ve had a great working relationship with law enforcement authorities in the community,” Idema said. “We’re all a part of a community, and we all want to do our part to make sure it is safe.” Between April 28 and May 5, 32 furniture and dumpster fires burned in Mount Pleasant as the spring semester came to an end. An up-to $5,000 reward was offered by the Michigan Arson Prevention Committee for anyone with tips that could lead to the arrest of any suspects. It is unclear if these five students or others have been arrested in connection to the fires. Calls placed to MPPD Tuesday afternoon have not been returned.
Idema said it should be “common sense” not to light furniture or dumpsters on fire as a student. “We all want to see students complete their classes and graduate,” Idema said. “But these are things we don’t want to see in the future.” He said the university is still looking into other possible cases related to CMU students and his office will act should they be made aware of them. The fires took place throughout the city, including four dumpster fires at Lexington Ridge Apartments, 3700 E. Deerfield Road, and furniture fires on Main Street, Franklin Street and at the Jamestown and Deerfield Village apartment complexes. firstname.lastname@example.org

GEALT | CONTINUED FROM 2 Hill also hoped that Gealt will actively address criticism from his constituents in strengthening relationships between administration and the academic division. “A good start might be embracing faculty who have been constructively critical of the administration,” Hill said. “A lot more can be learned than simply keeping these individuals at arms-length.” Gealt also maintained that although his experience is in molecular biology, he is a “lover of the arts” and an egalitarian administrator. “They (faculty) have my trust,” he said. “The faculty and search committee have done extensive research into my background. They’ve investigated me. That is their way of figuring out if they trust me. Working together helps build trust. I’ve got a really thick skin.” Gealt looked forward to working with criticisms from faculty and students alike. He hopes to maintain a constant presence on campus and to work closely with President George Ross. “(Ross’) role will occasionally take him into
the community, but I’ll be the main guy on campus,” Gealt said. “It’s the job of the Chief Academic Officer to say we’re going to do the best for academics. I want the students to tell me what we’re doing wrong. I don’t want a lot of yes people around me.” Ross was confident the school’s second-highest ranking official will collaborate fairly with deans and instructors to bring CMU’s internal communication back to where it needs to be. “It’s a huge responsibility,” Ross said. “He will set the agendas and keep communications open. There is still some healing left to do. It’s got to be a commitment on the part of the staff. It has to be participatory.” Ross was confident that Gealt will rise to the occasion. “His proven track record of success was evidentiary of the great things the new provost could achieve at CMU,” Ross said. “I’m very pleased (with Gealt’s hiring). He has an academic and employment record that is exemplary. I will encourage him to work across faculty lines. We’re going to be partners.” firstname.lastname@example.org

of education in other market areas. At the same time, we want to expand our region and gain a greater market share in the state of Michigan.” Johnson said the university hopes to market itself to students in the Midwest as early as the ninth and 10th grades. It is also looking to reform its financial aid programs to accommodate more students. “We are looking at our whole financial aid philosophy and how we award money to students. Our ultimate goal is to make sure we have funding to be able to award money at certain levels than we have in the past. We know there are still families that have challenges and sometimes that forces their student to have to make a different decision,” Johnson said.
“We know we can’t give every student everything, but we want to create a program that is more responsive to the students that need the most help.” According to Johnson, the university is looking for the right balance of programs and the amount of money going to each of the programs. “Right now, there are proposals for increasing or adding financial programs and money to existing programs,” he said. “We are looking to see if there are places we need to add money because we have a greater number of students who have this qualification or need, but we may also need to find areas where we are not responding to.” Establishing Bridge programs with high schools and
Q & A CMU Provost Michael Gealt By John Irwin Editor-in-Chief
WHAT’S YOUR LEADERSHIP STYLE LIKE?
Central Michigan University Provost Michael Gealt is a talker. “I’m the kind of guy that likes to verify opinions,” he said. “I do a lot of information collecting. You never want to get stuck in an elevator with me because I’ll ask you questions.” The former dean of the College of Science and Mathematics at the University of Arkansas - Little Rock is set to take over for retiring Provost Gary Shapiro on Aug. 1. In a lengthy discussion with Central Michigan Life, Gealt cast himself as someone who can form consensus and work with others while also making “tough decisions.” The following are excepts from the interview:
WHAT KIND OF ADJUSTMENTS HAVE YOU OR WILL YOU HAVE TO MAKE MOVING TO MOUNT PLEASANT FROM LITTLE ROCK?
“It really is the big question. People ask, ‘What are you going to do about the snow?’ Well, (my wife and I) like snow. We grew up around snow. This is the first time we’ve ever had a house with well water, so that’s going to be interesting. But, I will tell you this: Every time we’ve moved from a bigger city to a smaller one, we’ve enjoyed it.”
“I’m very democratic in that I like people to voice their opinions and gather opinions and talk to people who tell me I’m wrong. I’m very open. At some point, an administrator has to make decisions, and I’m very data-driven when it comes to that.
HOW DO YOU ENVISION YOUR ROLE WITH THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE AS IT OPENS UP IN AUGUST?
“I hope it’s a very active role. I’ve met with the dean, and I’m looking forward to more interactions with him. He and I seem to be on the same page in terms of the way we should be educating M.D.’s. I’ve been involved in developing new curricula for engineering students. Both my postdocs have been at medical facilities. I have a background, so I can talk M.D. if I have to. “We’re very interested in active learning processes. We’re very interested in community outreach. We’re very interested in case-based initiatives. So, I think we’re on the same page in terms of how we should be educating physicians.”
READ THE ENTIRE Q&A AT CM-LIFE.COM school districts will be a priority, he said. “Bridge programs are programs that are designed to get students in their high school years engaged with the campus. The students would start coming on campus to engage in academic and social activities to increase their awareness of CMU,” Johnson said. “They would also get some exposer to our labs and facilities as well as student organizations so when they choose an organization, Central is higher on their list.” Though undergraduate numbers are falling, Johnson said the university should experience an increase in international students. “We need to understand the more students you bring form other states and other cultures, the more the campus is diversified and improved and makes the student experience even better,” he said.

MAKING HEADLINES High school students attend three-day journalism workshop on campus From June 28 to June 30, about 25 high school students came to Central Michigan for a three-day workshop. During the workshop, students interviewed CMU students and faculty members, took photos and recorded video to create a multimedia package. The students stayed on campus and got to know the area while they worked on aspects to becoming a good journalist all-around, whether it be writing, interviewing, photography and video. Some students got a chance to watch what reporters do and ask questions on, not only how to become a writer and different techniques, but the balancing act between writing for a college newspaper, social life and classes.
LIFE IN BRIEF OFFICE PROFESSIONALS
UAW RATIFIES NEW CONTRACT WITH CMU UAW Local 6888, a week after rejecting a previous agreement with Central Michigan University, voted to ratify a new contract with the university that takes CMU’s office professionals through June 2016. The new deal, ratified on Jone 27, gives CMU’s 324 office professionals a 2.5-percent base wage increase during the 2013-14 financial year, with 0.5-percent increases in the two years following. In addition, retirement contributions will grow from 8.5 percent to 10 percent over the course of those three years. The UAW’s old contract with the university was set to expire at the end of June. In June, CMU and the Supervisory Technical-Association, which represents the university’s 118 supervisory-technical employees, reached a tentative agreement that also takes them through June 2016. Like the UAW contact, the STA contract gives those employees a 2.5-percent base wage increase during the 2013-14 financial year followed by two 0.5-percent increases in the following years. - CM Life Staff Reports

Challenges remain after Supreme Court DOMA ruling By Adrian Hedden Staff Reporter
Students at CMU witnessed a changing tide in American politics after the Supreme Court ruled a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional last week, requiring the federal government to treat all marriages – gay or straight – the same. Following the June 26 ruling, both sides of the student political spectrum at CMU began to come to terms with the ruling, which struck down the most controversial portion of the 17-year-old law signed by former President Bill Clinton. Across party lines, students said that despite the federal ruling, the future of marriage equality lies in the hands of the states. “The court has ruled, and that’s just the reality,” said CMU College Republicans Vice Chair Mike Holmes, a Grand Rapids senior. “We will always stand for state’s rights. Some who believe in the historical definition of marriage were disappointed, but we’re not going to the streets with pitchforks and torches. You don’t have to agree, but respect the process.” A DOMA | 5

Congress resumed a heated debate over student loan interest rates Monday, and both parties are pointing the finger at each other. On July 1, student loan rates on government-subsidized student loans doubled from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent on any loans made starting that day or later. Lawmakers had been up to the deadline to find a compromise, but to no avail. “It’s time for the president to lead, and it’s time for him to bring his Senate Democrat leaders together to develop a solution. The House has done its job,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said, referring to a stalled House Republican bill that would tie government-subsidized loans to the 10-year Treasury note. The House GOP plan is similar to President Barack Obama’s, but the president has threatened to veto the bill because it would not set a fixed loan rate for the life of the loan. “What they’ve done over there is worse for students than doing nothing at all,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said. “The legislation passed in the House would balance the budget on the backs of struggling students. Attempt to balance it at least.” Senate Democrats are pushing for a bill, introduced by Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, that would return Stafford student loan rates to 3.4-percent. A vote is expected on that bill, but Senate Republicans are expected to block the bill. - John Irwin, Editor-in-Chief

EDITORIAL | Why CMU needs to address its enrollment problem
Time to get to work
he expected drop in Central Michigan University’s on-campus undergraduate enrollment numbers, expected to be down between 5-7 percent in the fall from fall 2012, is disappointing to say the least. Sure, CMU could never expect to maintain numbers as high as its fall 2010 record of 19,368 (and there are good cases to be made that it shouldn’t even want to, but such a steep drop in on-campus students could spell major trouble for the university and for the
students who are still here. The sharp decline in on-campus students this year, coupled with the decline we have noted over the past few years, means that the university just will not have as much money coming in through tuition and other
costs as it has in the past. Indeed, in an email sent out to faculty and staff last week, the university said it is expecting a $12 million general fund deficit and a $6 million auxiliary fund deficit next year. That’s bad news, especially if those numbers become typical over the next several years. The university cannot afford to be operating in the red, and it has promised to address the deficit by re-evaluating certain positions and having colleges dip into their carryover funds. In the short-term, that can do. But when you take a look at the big
picture, some major choices will need to be made if these numbers hold up over time, and none of the options are fun. The university might have to make drastic cutbacks to certain programs, costing faculty their jobs and perhaps resulting in further enrollment decreases. On the other hand, the deficits and enrollment drop could result in a steep tuition increase in the future, which would come at a terrible time for students already battling record high student loan debt levels and could make CMU a less attractive option for prospective students. Only time will tell if those scenarios become reality. In the meantime, though, CMU needs to re-examine how it markets itself to students instate, but especially out-of-state. There are fewer graduates in Michi-
gan today as the state’s population decreases. That means CMU will have to look to expand its reach outside of the state if it hopes to bring in new students. In order to effectively reach out-ofstate students, it needs to focus on creating a specific brand for itself. Should it brand itself as the university where students can get a relatively cheap, high-quality education in a state where tuition isn’t as high as other states? Should it focus on advertising strong programs such as the education program or the new medical school? Those are the types of questions the university needs to ask itself if it should hope to get itself out of this mess and save its students, faculty and staff a lot of pain.

Readers real issues through criticism of coverage As tragedies inevitably befall our society, news organizations have their hands full providing coverage and information in a timely and consumable manner. And as the mass media has swollen in recent years, following the advent of the Internet and social media, the news industry is now more competitive than ever before. Readers have many more options to choose from than before, and as newspapers and websites struggle to distinguish themselves with eye-catching headlines and photographs, the public has developed a bloodlust for criticizing these outlets of public information. Rather than reading into plane crashes and school shootings, hoping to learn from the past so as not to repeat it, readers now feel they can challenge the credibility and sensitivity of established news organizations. As readers have clamored to debase the Chicago Sun Times headline “Fright 214,” from the paper’s cover story about the recent plane crash in San Francisco, it is clear that the tragedy has often become secondary for some in the overempowered readership’s penchant to play reporter themselves. Readers develop their own opinions, and with the unbalanced freedom of the Internet, can publicize their claims of racism and insensitivity in distraction from the causes and lessons to be learned from the tragic events. This is the same public that indicted George Zimmerman through demonstration and vilify-
Adrian Hedden Staff Reporter ing posts, months before he even went to trial. As towering forensic evidence now builds in favor of Zimmerman’s self-defense claims, the public is exposed as hoping for the worst. With more technological tools than in past decades, users now pollute what could be a machine of greater access and larger discussion on important issues and events. The Internet should be a tool to bring forth a wider range of perspective, with instantaneous ease. But the uniformed masses have continued to deluge the Web with an unending stream of negativity. When irresponsible Twitter feeds reported on the false death of Joe Paterno and unfounded Facebook posts named Adam Lanza’s brother Ryan as the Sandy Hook shooter, the Internet struggled and our prized vehicle of public information may come grinding to a halt. It used to be a cliché to tell children to think before they speak; that demand has evolved, as even adults must Google before they post.
It really took us 10 years to find this guy? In addition to being one of the most evil and horrendous people in world history, former terrorist mastermind and current one-eyed, deep-sea fish meal Osama bin Laden was also the weirdest, luckiest jihadist alive. In addition to detailing its “gross incompetence” in capturing bin Laden when he was hiding on its own soil, a 337-page report completed by the Pakistani government and published by al Jazeera details some truly bizarre aspects of his life and about how he was able to escape the gaze of the U.S., Pakistan and so many other countries for so long. Just check out these doozies from the report: w He hid in six homes from 2002 through 2011, all in Pakistan, including the borderline hilariously overdone McMansion of a compound built for him just down the street from the Pakistani version of West Point. (Seriously. No one bothered to check there?) w The wife of one of bin Laden’s two most trusted bodyguards never once saw him or his family while living in that compound because apparently you can’t be too secure when you’re the most wanted man in the world. w Women were banned from watching television in the compound because the daughter of that bodyguard spotted her “poor uncle,” who she was told was too poor to leave the household, as the diabolical terrorist mastermind he really was on TV. w Bin Laden was a fan of gardening and teaching children, taking charge of the compound’s religious educa-
John Irwin Editor-in-Chief tion and vegetable garden when he wasn’t busy plotting an attack. w He shaved his beard and frequently wore a cowboy hat to avoid detection. A cowboy hat. Wow. w And get this: He was pulled over by Pakistani police for speeding, but he and his bodyguard were let go without questioning because the cop didn’t recognize the leader of the world’s most dangerous terrorist group. He almost sounds like a villain from a 1970s Saturday morning cartoon. It would be hilarious if it weren’t for the fact that bin Laden was a waste of oxygen responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent people. If nothing else, all of this makes me feel at least a little bit better about the federal government spying on us. After all, if our gigantic national security apparatus, with all its worldwide surveillance and its massive invasions of privacy, couldn’t track down bin Laden, another in a long line of diabolical yet goofy evil masterminds, for 10 years, at least I know my secretly obtained phone records and Internet history won’t be used for anything productive. That’s the next best thing to protecting my Fourth Amendment rights, right?

‘The Lone Ranger’ reprises a classic without letting its brain get in the way By Adrian Hedden Staff Reporter
Amid the canyons and sandy mountain peaks of the arid Texas wilderness, calm has set in. But just as easily, that native serenity is swiftly dashed by the cries of gunshots and terrified villagers that populate the setting in Jerry Bruckheimer’s colossal revitalization of the classic “Lone Ranger” saga. Dispensing of the politicized pretension that has been in vogue for this summer’s blockbuster season, “The Lone Ranger” was a refreshing, action-packed romp through the Wild West. The obvious but easily digestible plot of this rare western vehicle easily leads viewers through nearly three hours of quick-draws and stoic comic relief. And the bloodshed and grit pose violent pageantry against an immersive and realistic desert backdrop. Although “The Lone Ranger” is clearly not out to intellectualize its aging genre, it does provide hedonistic thrills. A heavily
made-up Johnny Depp as the soft-spoken Tonto is thankfully downplayed as a sidekick to the surprisingly aggressive star Armie Hammer. Hammer’s short but successful career has mostly found him acting in dramas such as “The Social Network” and “J. Edgar.” Here, his dramatic melodrama is mildly present but eagerly overshadowed by the physicality of his jaw-dropping stunts. And the villains who threaten justice throughout the Southwest couldn’t be dirtier or more depraved. From corrupt politicians to snarling gunslingers, the baddies may terrify youngsters with their scarred faces and dastardly acts. Comfortable as the lead outlaw and antagonist, William Fichtner has made a name for himself as a hideous villain over the past decade. Here, he plays to his strengths as the hated Butch Cavendish in a simple but highly theatrical antagonist to the heartwarming heroes. Although “The Lone Ranger” stretches just barely under 2.5 hours, it is evenly paced in its
’THE LONE RANGER’
★★★★★ w Genre: Action/Adventure swashbuckling glory, finding plenty of room for comic relief as the chemistry of Hammer and Depp does shine about every 45 minutes. It is a fun watch, but viewers must hope “The Lone Ranger” will be left at that unlike Bruckheimer’s now tired and forced “Pirates of the Carribean” tetralogy. Although there is plenty of mindless glee amid the realistic, naturalist cinematography, this film is clearly geared for a younger audience. It could easily depress seasoned fans of the legendary serials with its corny jokes and physical comedy. This summer, The Lone Ranger rides again with guns, glory and little thematic gluttony for all.

Set in western Texas, “The Lone Ranger” stars Armie Hammer, right, as the masked crusader and Johnny Depp as his comanche sidekick, Tonto. The film contains little commentary on the Western Expansion but remains a fun western film for the summer.

Michael Knaapen, left, and his husband John Becker embrace outside the Supreme Court after hearing that the Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, Wednesday, June 26, 2013, in Washington, D.C.
Holmes said disputes over social issues have become more prominent in recent years. “The younger generations on both sides are more moderate on these social issues than they have been in the past,” he said. “This is not the defining issue for us. The independent ability for the states to make their own decisions is.” CMU College Democrats President Taylor Gehrcke said he was ecstatic about the court’s ruling but was wary of future fights over gay marriage. “I have so much happiness for those people in California,” he said. “It was a victory to repeal DOMA, but there are still a lot of issues. It will challenge the Republicans as we are starting to see a shift.
“It’s one of the biggest rights people have been fighting for, gay or straight. I love my allies.” Sean Vanevery, Mount Pleasant Junior They’re going to be a little more open-minded.” Also pointing toward immigration, Gehrcke hopes the GOP will adapt to changing demographics and beliefs. “If (Republicans) want to stay a party, they need to adapt to what people want,” he said. “It’s that one step closer towards where we want to go. I would really encourage supporters to keep on supporting because same-sex marriage is still not allowed in Michigan.” Mount Pleasant junior Sean Vanevery, who serves as president of Spectrum at CMU, a gay-straight alliance student organization, remained wary of the challenges ahead for the gay community. “There are still issues facing the community,” he said.
“People still can get fired for being gay or not approved for housing. Michigan does not approve of same-sex marriage. It’s definitely something we need to get on the ballot. I think it’s a change we want to see in the states getting rid of discrimination. Human rights are something we have to fight for.” But, Vanevery still considers the ruling a victory for those who have been fighting for equal rights for decades. He said that all human rights activists should consider it a win, as well. “It’s one of the biggest rights people have been fighting for, gay or straight,” he said. “I love my allies.” email@example.com

EXTRA POINTS WOMEN’S BASKETBALL
TO THE TOP
BRADFORD HELPS TEAM USA TO 120-32 BLOWOUT OF MALI IN WORLD GAMES OPENER It wasn’t the 20 points and 10-plus rebounds Central Michigan fans are used to seeing out of junior guard Crystal Bradford. But her presence was felt for Team USA as it opened the 2013 World Games with a 120-32 win against Mali. Bradford played 17 minutes in the win, sixth most on the team, and scored six points while brining down six rebounds with two assists with a block. Crystal Bradford Connecticut junior guard Bria Hartley lead USA with 17 points, two rebounds, five assists and three steals. Southern California senior forward Cassie Harberts lead USA in minutes with 23, she scored 14 points and brought down four rebounds with her time and added an assist, block and three steals. Head coach Sherri Coale (University of Oklahoma) was pleased with the team’s transition offense, something Bradford is known for at CMU. “We got out in transition, ran really well,” Coale said in a release by usabasketball.com. “Every day that we play together, we get a little bit more comfortable with one another. The chemistry was better, and we communicated better on defense. Every opportunity to log minutes on the floor together as a unit makes us better.”

Kyle Randall vying for roster spot with NBA team By Kristopher Lodes | Managing Editor
laying in the NBA is a dream that every young basketball player has when they first start playing the game.
For former Central Michigan guard Kyle Randall, that dream is within reach. Randall is one of 15 players to be named to the Sacramento Kings Summer League roster. This isn’t a guarantee that Randall has made the NBA squad, but it’s an important first step to achieving that goal of making an NBA roster. “This is just another opportunity,” Randall said. “With this opportunity, I get to perform and tryout for every team, so I’m pretty much try-
ing out for not only the Kings, but every other team in the NBA. Hopefully, it goes well, and that’s my first goal. After that, it’s like I’m starting all over again in high school or college. Get one team, make a name for myself, get in the lineup and hopefully fill my resume.” Randall hasn’t taken the paths most travel to the NBA. He wasn’t a high school stud who played a year in college before bolting for the NBA. He wasn’t even a typical
senior who played four years and graduated into the NBA. Randall played three seasons at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, where he graduated after three years. UNCG went through some coaching changes and the new style coming in wasn’t suited to his game, so Randall made the decision to leave. “That was a pretty big decision that I had to make,” Randall said. “I felt the program there was going in a different direction that wouldn’t benefit me, so I decided to leave.” Randall didn’t know where he was going after the decision, but CMU was going
through a coaching change itself. He landed there with new head coach Keno Davis and his up-tempo offense, and he flourished. “He showed that he could lead the MAC in scoring and has several other skills that he is just beginning to scratch the surface with,” Davis said. “We needed that point guard position to be solid ... We worried about the recruitment of point guards and to be able to get somebody like Kyle Randall, who not only had experience and graduated in three years, but was someone we could build that season around.” A RANDALL | 7

ENNS MAKING MOVES IN YANKEES SYSTEM In 19 games for the Class-A Charleston RiverDogs former Central Michigan pitcher Dietrich Enns went 4-1 with a 0.61 ERA Enns was promoted to the Advanced Class-A Tampa Yankees where he has made three appearances. Enns was made a starter, but struggled in two starts in Tampa where he went 0-2 in eight innings with eight hits and eight earned runs. Despite getting roughed up in two starts, he was able to record eight strikeouts in five innings in his first game and was strong in a relief role in his last game on Wednesday, July 3 when he went 4.2 innings allowed no earned runs and recorded three strikeouts. Much like Rheault, Enns was selected in the 19th round by the New York Yankees and was apart of five-player CMU draft class in 2012. Shortstop Jordan Dean and pitchers Zach Cooper, Jon Weaver and Ryan Longstreth were also selected with Dean and Longstreth going to the Detroit Tigers, Cooper to the Philadelphia Phillies and Weaver to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Central Michigan lands Michigan State defensive end transfer Gainer By Aaron McMann Staff Reporter
The Central Michigan football team has landed Michigan State defensive end transfer Jeremy Gainer, who graduated in the spring and has one year of eligibility remaining. Head coach Dan Enos confirmed the addition on last week, adding depth to a defense that ranked in the bottom half of the Mid-American Conference last season. “When we went into the spring, it was one of the areas we were trying to gain depth and an older player
to help us immediately with a pass-rushing presence,” Enos said. Gainer is expected to start right away at defensive end and play opposite fifthyear senior Alex Smith, who started three games at defensive end in 2012 before suffering a seasonending knee injury in a loss at Northern Illinois. Senior Kenny McClendon will also give the two competition, bolstering a defense that allowed an average of 432 yards of total offense and ranked seventh in the MAC.
“We were able to get Alex Smith back for a fifth year at defensive end, and now we add another fifth-year senior who has played football in a very structured program and will come in and know how to work, know how to do things,” Enos said. “I think those two guys are going to be a great bonus to our defense and our team.” Gainer, who moved from linebacker to defensive end prior to the 2012 season, played primarily on special teams last season, recording one tackle in 14 games.
Ironically, he was recruited by Enos in 2009, then an assistant at Michigan State, out of Clarenceville High School in Livonia. There, Gainer was the No. 15 ranked outside linebacker in the nation according to Rivals.com. But since then, he hasn’t been able to become a consistent fixture for the Spartans. After redshirting his freshman season and playing in just one game in 2010, he recorded 11 tackles and had two forced fumbles in 2011, appearing in all 14 games but never started.
Gainer moved to defensive end in spring 2012, but his time was limited again, playing behind eventual pro Will Gholston and junior Marcus Rush. “He wanted to increase his role and become more of an every-down defensive end, rather than just a guy who played in special situations,” Enos said of Gainer’s decision to transfer. “Him and coach (Mark) Dantonio talked, and coach granted him his release and then they contacted me.” firstname.lastname@example.org

FORMER CHIPPEWA CHRIS KAMAN SIGNS ONE-YEAR CONTRACT WITH LAKERS By Mike Bresnahan Los Angeles Times (MCT)
The Lakers found themselves a center, a familiar name to Los Angeles sports followers. Chris Kaman agreed to a one-year, $3.2-million deal with the Lakers three days after Dwight Howard spurned them to sign with Houston. Kaman represents the Lakers’ “mini” mid-level exception, their only free-agent tool of note this summer. They can
offer players only minimum salaries ($1.4 million at most) to fill out the rest of their bench.] Kaman, 31, averaged only 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds in 66 games with Dallas last season. He was a part-time starter and missed 10 games because of a concussion. Kaman takes a steep cut from the $8 million he made last season but might start at center for the Lakers if they
want to keep Pau Gasol at power forward. “I am going back to LA and it’s to play for the Lakers!” Kaman said on Twitter. “I am excited about this move and can’t wait to play.” Kaman spent the first eight years of his career with the Clippers after they drafted him in 2003. The Lakers now have nine players under contract for next season.

The point guard position quickly went from something that worried Davis and his staff to one of the team’s strengths. Randall and freshman Chris Fowler created one of the strongest backcourts in the Mid-American Conference, with Randall averaging a MAC-best 18.7 points per game while earning AllMAC Second Team honors and Fowler breaking the CMU freshman singleseason mark for assists and became a scorer himself at season’s end while being named to the All-MAC Freshmen team. Randall was able to play to his potential and get noticed by the NBA, while Davis was able to be competitive in Year One and now has a core to build around that learned from Randall’s veteran leadership. “The more we got to work with him, the more he exceeded our expectation,” Davis said. Randall isn’t the first NBA prospect Davis has coached. While at Providence, Davis coached first-round draft pick MarShon Brooks, who is now a rising star with the Brooklyn Nets. Davis has found some comparisons between Brooks and Randall with their character and development. “I saw the same type of development that Kyle Randall had gone through
(with Brooks),” Davis said. “Brooks was a player who wasn’t heavily recruited and played sparingly as a freshman, but he continued to work and keep his goals in front of him.” That is where Randall is, looking at his goals right in front of him. Randall has a shot that many of those kids who dream of the NBA don’t ever get. “I’m confident enough in my work ethic and the way that I go about training and getting better,” Randall
said. “I can be that, I can be a known guy in this league. It’s all about getting that chance and going to the team that fits you.” Randall knows all too well that playing in the right system and taking advantage of opportunities helps his chances. After all, that’s what he did at CMU. “Once I get that opportunity, I know that I’ll work my hardest to keep it, increase, accelerate it and keep moving forward,” Randall said. Randall’s first opportunity comes Saturday, July 13, at 3 p.m. PDT in Las Vegas against the Dallas Mavericks. email@example.com
