Kaya Coffee House to remain in location, will not be rezoned By Greg Horner News Editor news@cm-life.com

The former SBX building that houses Kaya Coffee House will not be rezoned following a Mount Pleasant City Commission vote.  The city commission voted 4-3 Monday to deny a request that would rezone the location from commercial to residential. Local developer Rick McGuirk was in the process of purchasing the property on the condition that the rezoning request would be approved. He intended to demolish the building to develop the property for residential housing.  “We are not responsible for rezoning every parcel (of land) or building that has difficulty selling,” said Commissioner

Lori Gillis. “(This) is not compatible with the goals that we are trying to achieve south of High Street.” Dozens of people attended the public hearing to speak against the proposal. Kathy Martin has been a resident of Mount Pleasant for more than 40 years. She said that Kaya Coffee House has been a staple of the community and there isn’t a place like it near campus. “Mount Pleasant says that it supports small businesses,” Martin said. “It’s time for the city commission to ‘walk their talk’ in support of small businesses.” The building has been for sale since the SBX Bookstore closed more than two years ago. Emily Miller and Abigail Chambers, the owners of Kaya,

COMMISSIONER

lease a space in the property. They were preparing to find a new location if the request had passed, Miller said. Miller said she understands economic concerns for the SBX Building, which has remained mostly vacant since 2015. However, she argued the location is commercially viable. “We respect everything that is going on but we also do respect where our business is located,” Miller said. “It is a nice

safe haven for the students and we do think it’s successful as a business area.” Josh Geary, who represented the CMU Student Government Association., said an overwhelming amount of student comments opposed the rezoning. He read one statement written by a student. “Kaya is a safe space for minority students and many students on campus to come together and express them-

selves,” he said. McGuirk, the operations manager of United Apartments, said he understood people’s anxiety in regard to the request. “Change is tough and I respect everyone’s position,” he said. “I feel the best use of the land, as this parcel touches Central Michigan University, is for high-quality student housing.” Commissioner Jim Holton supported the rezoning

request and acknowledged it wasn’t a popular opinion. “Looking at the building, the state of the building and the land use which doesn’t show it as being a commercial area, “ Holton said. “Knowing those facts, that’s the way I’m voting this evening.” John Belco is a managing partner of the SBX Bookstore building. He supported the zoning request alongside McGuirk. “The building has been for sale for more than two and a half years and I hear a lot of great ideas about what can go there — (but) the phone isn’t ringing,” Belco said. “We’ve been paying a lot of expenses and taxes as that building has stood vacant and I’m not sure the business climate can hold a retail space that big.”

University says anti-Semitic card creator was previously a student By Evan Sasiela News Editor news@cm-life.com

Central Michigan University President George Ross said Tuesday that the creator of an anti-Semitic Valentine’s Day card is a former student. This is the third statement Ross has issued relating to the Feb. 8 incident. In his initial statement, Ross referred to the woman as a “non-student” throughout the release. The university has since clarified its position. In his latest statement, Ross wrote that assumptions that the student was suspended or expelled from CMU are false. The woman was not a CMU student this academic year, but was a student last year. Ross condemned the message of the anti-Semitic card handed out by a member of the College Republicans at CMU after a meeting on Feb. 8 in Anspach Hall. He said the university issued its first statement “less than 90 minutes after staff leaders from multiple units met, reviewed social media posts and determined (the Office of Civil Rights and Institutional Equity or OCRIE) would launch an immediate inquiry.” Those involved in the university inquiry include

Ross, the provosts’ office, the university’s General Counsel, OCRIE, Office of Institutional Diversity, Student Affairs, Student Activities and Involvement, the CMU Police Department and University Communications. According to Ross’ account of the investigation, OCRIE officials spoke to students in College Republicans and others involved, including the woman who created the card. They concluded that portion of the investigation by 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 10, Ross said.  Student Activities and Involvement office also spoke to a number of students to gather more information. Ross did not name the former student who created the card. He said the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act “precludes CMU from naming the individual.” Ross said the former student was allowed to be a member because of specific RSO rules.  Program Board, Student Government Association and Residence Hall Assembly are the only registered student organizations which are CMU entities who receive university administrative advisors and financial oversight. The nearly 400 other RSOs are independent. Despite the confusion caused by the first two statements, Ross praised those involved in the process of looking into the incident in further details.

SGA announces plans for State of the Student Body Address By Evan Sasiela News Editor news@cm-life.com

Student Government Association leaders presented tentative plans for a State of the Student Body address at the Trustee-Liaison Student Committee meeting, part of the Central Michigan University Board of Trustees, in the President’s Conference Room on Wednesday at the Bovee University Center. SGA President Jazmin Biernat said the address is tentatively scheduled for April 3. Biernat said they plan to open the address to the public and broadcast the event on News Central 34 and live on the SGA Facebook page. The may include a committee showcase, an update on community relations, Biernat’s formal address, an award presentation for staff and administration, and an open question forum. “The purpose of the State of the Student Body is to provide CMU and the surrounding community with an update on what it is that we are working on

and what we can do for the community,” said Anna Owens, SGA vice president. Former SGA President Chuck Mahone held the first State of the Student Body address in February 2016 in the Powers Ballroom. Members also discussed SGA’s plans for Earth Day and its goals for Greek Week, student concerns and recent advocacy efforts during the committee meeting. Biernat said SGA also plans to introduce a medical amnesty policy which would provide students an avenue to be excused from class if they experience a long-term medical absence.

ADVOCACY Biernat said SGA is looking into adopting an Election Day absence forgiveness policy. Members of SGA wants students to be excused from tests or projects due on Election Day so they can travel home to vote, or have time to vote during the day. Senators spent time tabling at specific events with a suggestion box to see if students want anything changed or improved upon on campus, Biernat said.

Josh Barnhart | Staff Photographer SGA President Jazmin Biernat discusses SGA updates to trustee members on Feb. 15 in the Bovee University Center conference room.

Among the suggestions were requests for more parking, longer library hours and better treatment toward sexual assault survivors. In terms of city outreach, the Governmental Affairs Committee and city of Mount Pleasant are working on the Crawford Road Pathway Project. The project was created in memoriam for deceased CMU student Ryan Tsatsos. Tsatsos was killed in a hit-and-run incident in November 2015 on Crawford Road. Biernat, who agreed the road is not well-lit, said the city is working with SGA to gather student feedback surveys to look at possible options. Two options include more lights or better lighting on walkways to and from campus, as well as a cut-through path to campus, Biernat said. On the Gender and Sexuality Center front, SGA established an ad-hoc committee which meets Monday nights following SGA’s regular meeting time, Biernat said. The committee works to get student support behind the center and distribute information to offices and organizations. The new center would combine the existing Office of LGBTQ+ Services, located in the lower level of the Bovee UC with a proposed Women’s Center in the same physical location.

Biernat said SGA has been working on implementing a women’s center for the past four-to-five years. Work on the project now is “the culmination of all that building up to now.” “There’s a very large student movement that’s growing behind it,” she said.

EARTH WEEK AND GREEK LIFE Biernat also gave updates on other SGA sponsored events, including an Earth Week celebration planned for April 17-22. It will be a collaboration between Student Environmental Alliance and Take Back the Tap, aiding campus and citywide cleanup days, along with presentations from speakers and musicians. Members of the Residence Hall Assembly and Greek Life also gave updates to the trustees in attendance, such as Patricia Mooradian, William Kanine and Michael Sandler. Max Sarvello, a representative from Greek Life, said the goal for this year’s Greek Week is to raise more than the $67,000 it raised last year for the Derrick Nash Strong Foundation. Greek Week 2017 proceeds will benefit the Isabella County Child Advocacy Center and the Kristy Malter Memorial Fund.  Servello said the goal is to split the funds and distribute it to each.

Academic college on probation after accreditation not granted By Ben Agosta Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

Faculty members from the College of Education and Human Services voiced concerns regarding a recent denial of accreditation during the Board of Trustee’s Academic and Student Affairs Committee meeting. The committee met Wednesday, Feb. 15 in the President’s Conference Room in the Bovee University Center. The meetings act as a precursor to Thursday’s formal Board of Trustees session. Elizabeth Kirby, the acting dean of the college, discussed plans to gain accreditation at a later date and what they need to do moving forward. Kirby said she and other members of the college were more than disappointed when The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation denied EHS accreditation in fall 2016. “To say that we are all very disappointed about the accreditation decision is clearly an understatement,” she said. Although the college was accredited by another body, the new agency became the sole accrediting body for education providers in July 2013, causing the accreditation of two older accrediting bodies to combine. Kirby said the college took appropriate steps to prepare for the accreditation change, adding that faculty members attended every one of the agency’s conference, conducted planning sessions and worked with colleagues throughout the state. Nevertheless, accreditation was denied and the college is on probation. “I’m not here to offer excuses, but I am here to explain the process we went through, how the decision came to be and what action we are taking to address this problem,” Kirby said. The dean said part of the problem was the accreditor was dysfunctional during the review of the college because it was still in the process of combining the two accrediting bodies. “We did not take our eye off this ball, but it was constantly a moving target with CAEP,” she said. “There was great dysfunction at this time within the organization, as these two accrediting bodies tried to come together. It was frustrating.” The Kirby added that the accreditation agency told the college to submit internal evaluations, and the college would receive feedback in 2014. “As of fall of 2016, we still have not received feedback from CAEP,” she said.

“To say that we are all very disappointed about the accreditation decision is clearly an understatement.” ELIZABETH KIRBY

ACTING COLLEGE OF EDUCATION AND HUMAN SERVICES DEAN

Kirby explained that the accreditation agency’s review process includes an on-site visit by the agency and an audit opinion rating colleges as clean, qualified or adverse. She said the college received a clean opinion from the audit — the highest rated opinion.  “So, when he had finished our site visit and the audit was complete, we felt we had a clean audit and we had three areas for improvement, which is pretty typical in an accreditation process,” she said. After the decision by accreditors in November 2016 – which shocked Kirby – the dean said the college submitted a request to CAEP for reconsideration. Last Friday, the college received a letter accepting the request for reconsideration. The accrediting body will determine whether CEHS will receive the accreditation during its accreditation council meeting April 22-24 in 2017. The college cannot submit new information and if the accreditation agency decides against CEHS, the college will be on probation until 2019. Kirby, however, said the college is not standing idly by and is taking action to make improvements. She said CEHS hired a consultant to look at every instrument in the agency’s rating system and what CEHS can improve upon. Kirby said the accrediting body’s biggest problem with the college’s instruments is its standards for measuring a teacher candidate’s pedagogical knowledge, or knowledge of teaching. “I feel like we have a very aggressive plan,” she said.” We meet weekly again on this issue, and we’re leaving nothing unturned in trying to turn this around and assure we have accreditation moving forward.” After Kirby finished her statements, Trustee Patricia Mooradian asked the dean if the college’s accreditation probation would affect the status of students graduating from CEHS. Kirby said it would not because the previous accreditation is still in effect, even if the accrediting body is now defunct.

Junior guard Marcus Keene poses for a photo on Jan. 25 in McGuirk Arena.

Junior guard unlike any athlete we’ve seen in recent memory, see him while you can Marcus Keene’s brilliant play during the 2016-17 season has drawn national praise and attention to a small Mid-American Conference gymnasium in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. Before this shooting star passes through our atmosphere and into the next phase of his career, we encourage all students to see him play firsthand at Central Michigan University. You only have three home games left this season to watch potentially the greatest basketball player to come through this school. Three games to watch history unfold. Take a break from studying, meet up with friends, take your parents. Let’s pack McGuirk Arena this weekend. It’s not often we see a student-athlete like Keene at this

school. In just one season, the junior Youngstown State transfer has earned his place on the Mount Rushmore of CMU basketball. He leads the nation with 29.8 points per game, notching five 40-point performances and one 50-point performance. He is CMU’s all-time single-season scoring leader with 775 points as of Tuesday and is 99 points away from becoming the MAC’s all-time single-season scoring leader. The 5-foot-9 guard from San Antonio is captivating when he’s on the court.

Keene’s scoring arsenal is seemingly endless and ever expanding — a 35-foot 3-pointer, a reverse layup while fighting off a defender in the lane, a steal and a no-look pass for a slam dunk in transition, an anklebreaking cross-over. The list goes on. And he does everything on the court with an ear-to-ear smile because he feels it “makes the other team mad if I’m smiling and also scoring.” Once you think you’ve seen it all, Keene goes a step further. If he makes three 3-pointers in a row, Keene tests the decibel meter by igniting the McGurik Arena crowd into a frenzy with a fourth and fifth. We witnessed one of Keene’s greatest finishes earlier this month when he weaved the ball between his legs, methodically eyeing down a Western Michigan defender as the

clock wound down, faked in, hopped back out and sank the game-winning 3-pointer with 4.3 seconds remaining. We have the chance to watch Keene continue making history on the hardwood.  After losing Tuesday to Buffalo, which dropped CMU to second place in the division, Keene refused to talk to the media for postgame interviews. While this is disappointing to us, he wanted to focus on what is really important to him — winning. With five regular season games remaining on the schedule, Keene and the Chippewas are in the hunt for a MAC West Division title. With the help of his backcourt mate Braylon Rayson, forwards David DiLeo, Josh Kozinski, Luke Meyers and company, Keene has his eyes set on leaving the ultimate legacy — a trip to the NCAA Tournament in

March. To do that, Keene and the Chippewas need you, CMU students, this weekend. The Chippewas play Saturday against Ball State at McGuirk Arena. The Cardinals sit one game ahead of CMU in the West Division. Tipoff is at 4:30 p.m. Take advantage of it while you can. We may never witness another Marcus Keene again.

Stop labeling reputable news outlets as ‘fake news’

The term “fake news” is a dangerous catch-all phrase created by ultra conservatives to discredit hardworking news outlets.  This buzzword intensifies the war on the media started by President Donald Trump has started. Yes, on occasion there are news stories from reputable national sources like NPR and The New York Times that have been carefully researched and reported on, but might include an unintended error. That does not make it fake news.   Stories with errors are misleading because of honest mistakes in reporting or because sources provide inaccurate information. That doesn’t make them fake. The true definition of fake news, on the other hand, is when the entire premise of a story is entirely fabricated to push an agenda.  The term “fake news” as a mainstream pejorative started being used during the 2016 presidential cam-

Kate Carlson Editor-in-Chief

paign. Some true instances of fake news include the false story that went viral about Pope Francis endorsing President Donald Trump during his campaign, or the “pizzagate” scandal meant to paint former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a truly deplorable light.  These are intentionally false stories — “fake news.”  Still, Trump, his supporters and his surrogates regularly call real news “fake.” This is dangerous, because labeling something as fake news due to a simple factual error which is often corrected immediately, is even more misleading than the error itself.  The improper use of “fake news” in

our culture’s lexicon chips away at the foundation of democracy and the sole mission of journalism.  Newspapers and journalists should regularly welcome feedback, including negative criticism. If the criticism is one-sided and not based in actual facts, the public will tune out and become uninformed. Central Michigan Life receives mentions on our social media channels frequently calling us “fake news,” without context or any indication of a stated grievance.  We recently received a mention on Twitter from a Student Government Association senator simply reading “you are fake news.”  When the commenter, Galen Miller, was then blocked from viewing the newspaper’s Twitter, he quoted his own tweet, saying “school newspaper can’t handle the truth #fakenews.”  Miller wasn’t responding to a specific story that he noticed contained an

error. He wasn’t commenting on biased reporting. He was using rhetoric from radical conservatives to make a blanket statement about a college newspaper without giving a reason for it.  When people use the term incorrectly, like Miller did, and put an incorrect label of “fake news” on an entire newspaper, they often do not provide solid reasons for such criticism. It’s an easy way to lead a pack of sheep to where you want them to go.  If Miller would have commented a specific reason why he didn’t agree with coverage or an error he spotted in a story, we would have worked to address it if his expression was valid.  When I reached out to him personally, he apologized, saying it was in a joking manner, but that he still didn’t agree with all of our coverage. When we had a civil conversation free of blanket accusations that were false, we reached a constructive resolution. Miller’s behavior on Twitter is a per-

OPINIONS

fect example of how some Trump supporters acted throughout the campaign and continue to act just months into his presidency — feeding into stories that were favorable only toward Trump and discrediting anything written in opposition to the billionaire businessman turned president.  What’s the result? An ultra polarized society where a president’s administration is actually telling lies — fake news or “alternative facts” — to the American people. Some people will blindly follow and call anything in opposition to their views using their new favorite term.  In order to save people from the “fake news” mindset, all trustworthy newspapers must stop using the phrase created to bring them down. We must unapologetically call out lies for what they are: lies. Likewise, if readers have problems with our coverage, they need to back it up with facts before falling back on simply labeling us as “fake news.”

Obama’s broken health care promises must be replaced soon On March 23, 2010, former President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, promising better quality and more affordable health care. Seven years later, this is not reality. Rising costs and poor health care coverage are results of a broken promise. Obamacare must be swiftly repealed and replaced. President Donald Trump has admitted repealing the ACA would take time and probably happen in 2018. There is no doubt that removal of this huge system will take time and effort, but it should be done sooner than 2018 to avoid further sloping into disaster. The broken promises of the Affordable Care Act start with healthcare insurance

providers. The law requires states to form insurance market places where people can shop around to look for the insurance plan that fits them. For those that must buy their insurance through these market places, their options are limited. The New York Times wrote last year that the three largest insurance providers — Aetna, Humana and UnitedHealth Group — have all dropped out of many state market places because they were losing

hundreds of millions of dollars. With these companies dropping out, the result has been insurance premium increases and less insurance plan options. In a town hall on CNN, Sen. Ted Cruz correctly noted that 70 percent of counties in America have access to only one or two choices in health care providers. The few providers left in the market have had to raise their rates to offset their losses. This skews the cost to purchase insurance. The Department of Health & Human Services released its report stating premium rates will rise by an average of 25 percent nationally. There are 19 states where the rates will increase by more than 25 percent. Arizona, for example, will see an out of

control 116 percent increase. The costs don’t stop there. In addition to the massive costs, the ACA has also burdened millions of Americans and small business owners with numerous taxes. The website of the U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means has listed 21 tax increases since the law came into effect. Twelve of them fall onto the shoulders of those making less than $250,000 a year. As Forbes points out, 155 million American households make less than $250,000 a year. These taxes have added to the massive tax burden on the middle class and poor. They are only stifling growth and the economic well-being of these millions of people. The burden doesn’t stop there either.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce conducted a survey of small businesses and 72 percent said the ACA made it harder for them to hire more employees. It would cost too much to employ them. The law has created far too many burdens and have only made Americans pay more. The massive tax increases, the burdens on the middle and lower classes, the stifling of small businesses, the premium costs increases and the few choices given to people buying insurance are all symptoms of a failing system and a failed promise. President Trump said it best: “People might not think that, but the Republicans have all of the cards. And this is the time to get rid of Obamacare.”

Andrea Rachko, Special Olympics Michigan senior development director, said the Polar Plunge is the largest fundraising event for Special Olympics. Rachko said the event raised $1.82 million in Michigan last year, and raised $75,000 in Mount Pleasant. This year, Rachko hopes to beat last year’s total and raise $80,000. Rachko herself has taken the plunge six times. “It’s the anticipation of the jump that freaks people out,” Rachko said. “The water isn’t actually that bad.” Money raised goes toward the Special Olympics summer, winter and fall competitions, as well as cutting costs for athletes such as uniforms and transportation. Money goes toward local communities for teams and training for athletes. Special Olympics Polar Plunge has been held in Mount Pleasant for 10 years. Last year 445 “plungers” jumped for the cause, and this year there are 458 plungers. People can register until the day of the event at Wayside Central. Senior Hannah Rickers will be wake up at 6 a.m. to start setting up. Rickers is an intern at the Special Olympics Michigan headquarters and is the student coordinator of Polar Plunge. “We’re basically advocates for all things Polar Plunge,” Rickers said. “We fundraise and raise awareness for the events as much as possible by talking to student organizations and Greek Life. Hopefully that encourages people to join.” This is Rickers’ third year plunging. She was the

captain for the Leader Advancement Scholars team. Last year she tied for the most money raised by a student with $1,205. Rickers has volunteered at every game since her freshman year. Her passion for the Special Olympics stems from her experience working in a special education classroom in high school and the friendships she formed there. In that classroom, she met Kirk, a student with Down syndrome. Kirk became one of Rickers’ best friends and walked with her for graduation. “I want all people to attend who want to be there and be able to compete,” Rickers said. “Every $75 I raise allows someone to compete.” For every person that plunges, two athletes get to attend the games free. Rickers has also raised money to support people with disabilities. She put together a pageant for girls with different abilities. The event raised $2,000. “We try to say different abilities instead of disabilities because of the negative connotation,” Rickers said. “It’s really important to show that different abilities doesn’t define a person.”

SGA supports proposal to create new UP subgroup By Haley Les Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

House and Senate members approved a proposal to create a University Program Group 4D at Student Government Association’s meeting on Feb. 13. Group 4D would be titled “Studies in Other Forms of Discrimination in the United States and Other Cultures.” “In 2014-15, this was brought up under the Chuck Mahone administration and it passed in both the House and Senate,” said SGA Vice President Anna Owens. “Since it’s two years since that passed, we are bringing it to (SGA) again so we can make sure this is something the student body as a whole wants.” The proposal states that adding Group 4D will provide students

the opportunity to take courses focusing on groups inside or outside the U.S. that experience social, economic and political discrimination due to identities or shared traits other than race. The House and Senate passed the proposal with 74 votes in favor, 13 in opposition and nine abstaining. “We hope that it (will) be on the Fall 2018 bulletin, but that is uncertain depending on when it would be approved by the Academic Senate through the university,” said Michael Mamp, associate professor of Human and Environmental Studies.

SPREAD THE LOVE CAMPAIGN SGA launched a “Spread the Love” campaign Thursday after an anti-Semitic Valentine’s Day card was distributed on campus.

The campaign is about spreading love around campus and making sure students know they are welcome and feel comfortable on campus, Owens said. “CMU’s campus has always been an inclusive environment (that is) open and welcoming to students,” Owens said.  “We want to make sure this doesn’t put a damper on anyone’s opinion of each other and make sure people were keeping the message positive.”

MASCOT The Senate voted to pass a resolution to clarify the student body’s position for support of a mascot, but the House tabled it. The resolution will be voted on again at SGA’s next meeting Feb. 20. Last year, the Spirit and Traditions Committee started looking into the creation of a mascot for

CMU, said SGA President Jazmin Biernat. The legislation was “an idea” to introduce the mascot plans this year, to clarify the effort’s progress for others to pick up the torch later again and to clarify some of the guidelines for “what would be a mascot.”

EXTENDED HOURS STUDY UPDATE The resolution supporting longer operation hours in the Extended Hours Study room that was passed last week by the House is not going to pass in the Senate soon because of new Dean of Libraries Jeff Luzius starting his position in March. Owens said the passage of the resolution will include a conversation with Luzius. ELECTIONS Candidate information

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ORGANIZATION TO HOST CULTURE NIGHT ON FEB. 18 IN FINCH The International Student Organization is hosting its Cultural Night and Expo from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. this Saturday, Feb. 18, at Finch Fieldhouse. ISO considers culture night to be the biggest multicultural event at CMU. The event, which is free, will showcase the cultures of a wide variety of international students on campus. “The event is so important for international students to show who they are and that they are a part of CMU,” said Lebanon senior Mariam Saad, the ISO president. The expo will have tables representing different countries from around the world and highlights food, fashion and pride that students have for their respective societies. There will also be a currency table featuring the different forms of money from each international student’s home country. There are also cultural performances planned from various students.

Cultural night will feature a raffle in which students can enter by either filling out a question sheet or by taking a picture in the ISO photo booth and uploading the photo to ISO’s Facebook page. Winners will be announced every half hour for a $10 gift card. President George E. Ross will be speaking at the event, along with two hosts who will make announcements and entertain the crowd throughout the night. Saad said the Cultural Night and Expo offers a way to bring the cultures that make up the international community and American students at CMU together, amidst a controversial political climate. “This event is important for international students to see the welcoming community and the support for them,” she said.  - Quentin Rodriguez Staff Reporter

t the beginning of the season, Keno Davis doubted Marcus Keene’s ability to keep up his scoring dominance.  Now, Keene is making history as Central Michigan men’s basketball’s all-time singleseason leading scorer.  After scoring 27 points against Buffalo on Tuesday, Keene surpassed Dan Majerle, who scored 759 points during the 1987-88 season. Keene now sits at 775, the most points scored in a single-season by a junior in MidAmerican Conference history.  With five games remaining in the regular season, Keene needs 99 points to become the MAC’s all-time single-season scoring leader, set by Ohio’s Dave Jamerson during the 198990 season.   After the game, Keene chose not to speak to the media during the press conference because he was tired, but his head coach spoke on his behalf, saying Keene’s accomplishment was only the tip of the iceberg.  “It’s very well deserved for him to get some recognition,” Davis said. “I think it’s a sign of

After breaking another CMU record, Marcus Keene is inching closer to the Mid-American Conference record for most points in a season. great things to come for him and his future in basketball.” During Majerle’s record-setting season, he averaged 23.7 points per game. Keene leads the NCAA in scoring with 29.8 points per game. He has had five 40-point games and 14 30-point games, which is also a CMU record. “I was asked into the first month of the season if (Keene) could keep the pace, and I said ‘no.’ It doesn’t happen and nobody keeps that pace.” Davis said. “He’s had off nights, but not very many. His off night is a 26 or 27-point game when he had an off stretch or an off half.” In an interview earlier this season, Keene said his scoring comes from believing in himself. “I’ve got confidence in myself (and) in my shot to where I know I’m going to be shooting the ball a lot for our team,” Keene said earlier this season. “It’s more just putting in a lot of work and confidence with me.”  In the Buffalo loss, Keene finished the first half with only four points all of them from free throws. Keene did not make a field goal in the first half. 

Needing two points to break the record with the Chippewas down 59-49 with 15:14 left in the second half, Keene drove to his right, spun off of a defender and made a contested righthand layup to achieve the milestone.  Keene added 23 points in the second half after the subpar first half, and the Chippewas clawed back into the contest but ultimately came up short.  He finished the game 6-of-19 from the field and added six rebounds and eight assists. Teammate and fellow Texas native Braylon Rayson said his teammate’s achievement was significant.   “It is huge,” Rayson said. “It is a big deal.” Davis said Keene’s record-breaking performance has helped bring notoriety to the team, and his play has elevated the entire group. “It is also another step for our program,” Davis said. “We might not win the championship, but we are as competitive as anybody, night in and night out.” Keene’s confidence and ability to shoot separates him from other prolific scorers, Davis

added.  “I’m not going to say that his confidence is better than the other great scorers that have played here at CMU, but there’s nobody with more confidence than him,” he said. “Also, his ability to create his own shot. We can just give him the ball, and he can score on his own. That is something that is really rare in basketball.” Though he scores at will, Keene fills the stat sheet with assists and rebounds. He averages 4.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. Keene’s 11 assists against Green Bay earlier this season is a season high. He has also had two games this season

where he has tallied 10 rebounds. The 5’9” guard averages 36.4 minutes per game for the Chippewas. His play time is only second to Rayson, who plays 36.8 minutes per game on average. “We want to try to give (Keene and Rayson) some breaks so they are fresh at the end of the game,” Davis said. “I think we will try to get those guys more breaks as we go through the end of the season.” Performances like Tuesday’s game and Jan. 21 — when he scored a McGuirk Arena-record 50 points and tied a CMU record with 10 3-pointers — have given Keene national attention.  On Feb. 8, the Wooden Award trimmed its watch list down to 20 college basketball players. With players like UCLA’s Lonzo Ball and Kentucky’s Malik Monk, Keene’s name was

also on the list. The John R. Wooden award, established in 1976, is an honor given to the most outstanding collegiate basketball player of the year.  Keene has also been nominated for the Naismith Award, which is awarded to the Player of the Year in men’s college basketball.  “I do not know what his chances are of winning those awards,” Davis said. “We are in a day and age that you can be in the MAC and people get a chance to watch online or on national TV. The exposure he is getting is great for him and great for our basketball program.” Keene’s efforts have the Chippewas in second place in the Mid-American Conference. CMU takes on Ball State in its second home game in a row at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at McGuirk Arena.

Flint broadcasting station to be sold by CMU for $14 million By Greg Horner News Editor news@cm-life.com

Following a year of silence, Central Michigan University officials have announced its Flint public broadcasting station will be sold for $14 million. The sale is part of the Federal Communication Commission’s spectrum auction. The auction is the first of its kind and was designed to clear broadcast bandwidth for broadband providers.  The university’s Board of Trustees opted to participate in the auction in December 2015.  A mandated quiet period went into effect Jan. 12, 2016, which stopped university officials from commenting on the status of the auction. News of the sale came Feb. 7, 2017, one day after the quiet period was lifted for participating broadcasters. The sale will not impact CMU’s four other television stations or eight radio stations. The Flint station, WCMZ-TV, is operated remotely and staff will not be impacted. The sale won’t affect students, said Ken Kolbe, the general manager of CMU Public Broadcasting. CMU purchased the station for $1 million in 2009. The FCC originally estimated the value of WCMZ-TV at $420 million, Kolbe said. Those figures were exaggerated to entice broadcasters to participate in the auction and the

university didn’t expect to make the $420 million, said Director of University Communications Heather Smith. “We knew that those figures were inflated and we knew going into this how much (money) we expected to get,” Smith said. The auction was initially supposed to end in fall 2016 and raise $31 billion in bids from broadcast providers, Kolbe said. The auction ends March 30 after raising more than $19.5 billion. “A lot of people think the auction didn’t go as well as (the FCC) hoped,” Kolbe said. “It still isn’t done yet, but they aren’t going to make much more.” The station will continue to air for three months following the close of the auction. A university press release stated that 99 percent of WCMZ-TV viewers can be serviced by other PBS broadcasters. The Board of Trustees will decide how to allocate the $14 million to the university. “This was a difficult decision,” said University President George Ross. “Two facts, however, greatly influenced our conversation. First, nearly all viewers will continue to have access to PBS through other sources. If that weren’t the case, we wouldn’t have participated in the auction. “Second, our students are our core mission. Our mandate. We must focus our resources on their success. This decision was made to benefit Michigan families, including those in Flint.”

Fire extinguisher and phone scam recorded in crime log By Ben Agosta Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

Citations, misdemeanors and disorderly conduct were recorded in last week’s Central Michigan University Police Department crime log. FEB. 8 • A 20-year-old woman was scammed by an individual claiming to be an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigations. The imposter claimed the young woman owed $10,000 in taxes and the FBI had a warrant for her arrest. After giving up her credit card information, the woman realized it was a scam. However, she was able to cancel her cards before any money could be stolen. No suspects have been identified. • While responding to a reported fight at 1:54 a.m. at the Wayside Central, officers were alerted to a similar situation nearby. A man was standing over a bleeding man on the ground. The man was arrested and charged

with aggravated assault. The injured man was taken to McLaren Central Michigan by ambulance.  • Minutes later, officers arrested another man — who was the reason behind the original call — for being intoxicated and trying to start a fight. He was charged with disorderly conduct. FEB. 10 • A 19-year-old man was convinced he was in Thorpe Hall when police found him escorting an intoxicated 19-year-old woman inside Saxe Hall. After an ambulance transported the woman to McLaren Central Michigan, conversation between the man and police escalated. The man was given a minor-inpossession and was taken into custody. • A 20-year-old man contacted police at 2 a.m. saying an unknown subject deployed a fire extinguisher in his residence at Northwest Apartments. The caller said it occurred when he was away. Despite powder being all over the apartment, nothing was stolen or damaged. No suspects have been identified.

New animation concentration to begin in the fall By Brianna Borowiak Staff Reporter news@cm-life.com

The Art and Design department is preparing to start a new animation concentration program in Fall 2017. Jonathon Russell, chairperson of art and design, said the program has been in the works for past three years and will include 2D and 3D animation. One faculty candidate for the new concentration, Steve Leeper, visited campus already to introduce himself to the CMU community. Two others are scheduled for introductions throughout February. Mike Jones will present at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday Feb. 16, and Brad Lewter at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday Feb. 21. Both presentations will be held in Wightman Hall 142.

Candidate forums are open to the public. Russell said the department will make a decision after spring break. Students can participant in unique opportunities with the animation program, Russell said, with classes involving 2D and 3D animation, story-board, story development, different software competencies and hopefully, stop-motion. “(There’s) a broad range of (possibilities) from making experimental films, 2D animated short films to Pixar and everything in between,” he said. “We don’t know yet exactly what our students will be interested in.” Beyond work in the television and film industries, Russell added an animation degree can lead to jobs in variety fields.

“Some examples of 3D animations that happen in Michigan are the automobile industry (which) uses a lot of 3D animation, 3D modeling and 3D rendering in the Detroit area,” he said. Animation courses will be available for students in Fall 2017. Russell said students will not be able to officially sign for the concentration until 2019 or 2020. Students interested in pursuing animation until then can sign as a Studio Art major and take animation courses in that program. The department is looking for a professional to lead the program at CMU. Russell said the department is looking for someone who has experience teaching 2D and 3D, experience in writing curriculum and building academic programs.

There is one position available for new faculty, however, if student interest increases Russell said the department will be seeking more. On Thursday, Feb. 9, Leeper, an animation professor at Huntington University who has been teaching courses for 12 years, presented himself for the position by discussing his aspirations for the animation program at CMU. In his speech, Leeper discussed his film “The Temptation of Brother Thomas,” a project based on his experience as a growing artist in a religious community. Leeper also displayed work produced by both himself and students, including a class project stop-motion film called “Frogs.” “(‘Frogs’) started out as sophomore level drawing for

Junior forward’s consistent play key for women’s basketball By Andrew McDonald Staff Reporter sports@cmlife.com

Tinara Moore’s extra practice has helped her become one of the Central Michigan women’s basketball team’s most dependable players.  While Moore has always been a part of CMU’s offense, lately the junior has taken on more of the lead role in scoring. Throughout Moore’s first 12 Mid-American Conference games, she has averaged 19.5 points per game. This includes a five-game stretch where she led the team in scoring and averaged 24.4 points per game. “It all starts with my team. Without them I wouldn’t be able to put up the scoring numbers I get,” Moore said. “My experience and confidence is growing, which is making me see the rim and my teammates easier, and that all works together to make it all come easier.” The Chippewas (18-6, 10-2 MAC) have won four consecutive games and sit atop the MAC West Division. 

During this stretch, CMU has averaged 93 points per game, in large part due to the success of Moore. Junior guard Cassie Breen said that Moore’s stretch, where she led the team in scoring for five consecutive games, has played a big role in everyone else’s recent success. “I think the key component to our success is everyone working together, and Tinara (Moore) gave us a good start on that,” Breen said. “When our post players draw double-teams like she does, it helps all of us get open and have more space to take a shot.” Head coach Sue Guevara said Moore’s recent success on offense has come from her patience when she has the ball.  “Tinara (Moore) has really just let the game come to her more inside,” Guevara said. “I know she can get frustrated when teams start to throw double-teams at her, but she has done a good job of creating space and making her own room when she has the ball.” The Southgate native said having all of the different defensive schemes designed against her has only made her a better player.

Rich Drummond | Staff Photographer Junior forward Tinara Moore shoots the ball during the game against Eastern Michigan on March 11, 2016 at Quicken Loans Arena.

“Just having experience over the years with all of these different defensive situations thrown at me has helped me develop a lot of moves,” Moore said. “You really start to see the floor a lot better and realize how many different options you have.” This recent stretch of scoring hasn’t been the only time in Moore’s career that she’s had success shooting the ball. Moore scored in double figures in 16 of the team’s 18 conference games last season and recorded the 13th most double-doubles in the nation with 18, which led her to being selected to the All-MAC Second Team.  Senior forward Jewel Cotton, who has played with Moore for three seasons, said it isn’t only offense that has made Moore a better player. Her efforts to be a complete player help her on both ends of the floor, she said. “(Moore) is great to play with and really is a key part as to why the rest of the game opens up to us as a team,” Moore said. “It isn’t just on offense that she is a great player, but she also can rebound and guard a player very well. I think it’s just something, like most of us, she has gotten better with over time.” In her sophomore year, Moore finished with the fourth most blocked shots in single-season in program history with 52. Currently, Moore leads the MAC with 48 blocked shots and two blocks per game.  With six games left in the regular season, Moore needs 15 blocks to pass Ann Skufca’s all-time singleseason blocks record of 62.  Moore said it would be an honor to hold the record, but doesn’t necessarily put it as a priority. “I don’t really think about it a lot. I just play the best defense I can and if I see the chance to swat the ball away, I’m going to go for it,” Moore said. “If I get to the record, great, it would be nice to have, but I’d much rather focus on just getting better.” When it comes to another part of Moore’s success lately, free-throw shooting is at the top of the list.

On the season, Moore is just a 71.3 percent freethrow shooter. Over her past 10 games, Moore is just below 79 percent from the free throw line, including a 11-for-13 performance against Toledo and a perfect 8-for-8 performance against Ohio.  Moore said she knows how important free-throws are down the stretch in games and has been putting in extra work to improve on them. “I was struggling a lot in the beginning of the season which was keeping me back from my full potential as a player,” Moore said. “I just told myself that I need to get in the gym more and keep shooting.” Moore said she doesn’t have many goals for herself from a personal standpoint, but rather thinks of the team goals as her goals.  “We just want to win championships,” Moore said. “Basketball is a simple game, and that’s how I like to think of it, so I don’t make it more difficult on myself and I can just go out there and help our team get to where we want to be.

Lacrosse seeks postseason berth in second season By Andrew Glezen Staff Reporter sports@cm-life.com

After a 6-10 campaign in its inaugural season, the Central Michigan lacrosse team is looking to qualify for the postseason after failing to do so last year.  The team will open the season 3 p.m. Thursday against Saint Francis in Loretto, Pennsylvania.  The Chippewas will take on Robert Morris Saturday before returning home to face Marquette on Thursday, Feb. 23 for the Chippewas home opener.  Head coach Sara Tisdale is entering her second season at the helm.  “We look to build on the style of play we’ve already established for our program,” Tisdale said. “We look to get out and

run a lot in transition and hopefully it will be an exciting season for our players and our fans to

participate in as well.” Several keys players return for CMU in 2017, including

four of their top five scorers from 2016. Three of the four consist a trio of sophomore midfielders from Minnesota.  Last year’s leading scorer Jocelyne Lemay also returns for the Chippewas. The Peterborough, Ontario, native scored 35 goals and added five assists for 40 points last season.  “I’m expecting to win a championship this year to be honest,” Lemay said. “Our team is very skilled and capable of making it to the championship.” Lemay was named to the 2016 Atlantic Sun Conference All-Freshmen team and was also named to the All-ASUN second team. In addition to her accomplishments last year, Lemay was voted by the fans as the 2017 ASUN Preseason Player of the Year. “It’s an honor to be named

that, but I don’t think it changes my idea of the season.” Lemay said. “I still have to go out, work as hard as I can and play my game.” Minnesota sophomores Logan Halvorson and Anna Schoonover were also named to the 2016 ASUN All-Freshmen team.  Halvorson notched 20 points last season while Schoonover tied with fellow-Minnesota native Riley Huda for third on the team with 30 points. In addition to being named to the All-Freshmen team, Schoonover was also named to the 2017 ASUN Preseason watch list.  

NEWCOMERS  The Chippewas’ roster comprise 13 freshmen led by midfielder and Ontario native Tyra Prince. 

Prince attended Everest Academy where she served as team captain and was a 2015 National Women’s Lacrosse Combine all-star. Prince was also named to the ASUN Preseason watchlist for this season. “It’s exciting but I have to focus on playing my game,” Prince said. “I was given that honor because I didn’t think about it and just played my game. A lot of our freshmen are very influential on our team so I’m excited for what we will bring.” After beginning the season with seven non-conference games, the Chippewas will open conference play March 24 against Mercer at the Lacrosse/Soccer Complex.  If the Chippewas qualify for the conference tournament, they will travel to Jacksonville, Florida, May 4-7.

Wrestlers stay confident despite traveling troubles “I feel really good right now. It took a little while to get accustomed to the style of 197-pound wrestlers,” Severn said. “I am starting to feel a lot more comfortable out there.” Severn said confidence is important to a wrestler’s performance because it helps with seeding and bids for the NCAA Tournament.  “It helps when you beat some of the better guys in your conference,” Severn said.  Wrestling is the hardest sport to travel that resultingly affects confidence levels, because so many things can go wrong and wrestlers have to rely on a schedule to make weight, Borrelli said. “The tough thing is that most of the time you have to be on a certain routine,” Borrelli said. “You get into a rhythm of getting your weight down, what you are going to eat, what time you are going to wake up and what time you are going to work out. When you are at home, all of those things are easy.” Borrelli said when the team goes on the road to an away meet, nobody knows what is going to happen.  “There’s a lot of little things that can get thrown

When a Central Michigan wrestler gets a big win, head coach Tom Borrelli doesn’t think about rankings.  Instead, Borrelli thinks about how the match impacted the wrestler’s confidence.  Confidence does a lot for a wrestler especially for more experienced wrestlers because they are already at their peak physical level, Borrelli said. “Once you get to a certain skill level and strength level, then everything is mental,” he said.  Since younger wrestlers may not have reached their top skill and strength level yet, it is less of a mental game for them. “For guys that are as strong as everybody else in their weight class and know the technique, it is 99 percent mental,” Borrelli said. Senior Austin Severn is an example of a wrestler who is influenced by his own confidence.

off,” Borrelli said. “For example, we had to get another bus to come to East Lansing after the Michigan State match because in the morning, we couldn’t use that bus.  “We were supposed to leave at 8 a.m., but we didn’t leave until 11 a.m. the next day. We had to get people from Missouri to come get us because the bus broke down. Now, we are scrambling with guys trying to make weight because everything is thrown off.” When the unexpected occurs, the wrestler’s schedule and routine changes. The away team is at the mercy of the home team because the home team decides when the visiting team is allowed to use facilitates to work out. “Making weight is a really big part of this sport,”

Borrelli said. “If you are a tenth of a pound over, you are overweight and you cannot wrestle. Everything has to be pretty well planned and organized, and it’s hard to stay in that routine when you are on the road.” During away meets, Borrelli said most wrestlers come in about two pounds overweight, then they lose the weight in the warm up an hour and a half before weigh-ins.  The wrestlers workout for about an hour and then get some down time to make sure that they can make weight. Then the wrestling starts an hour after weigh-ins.  The Chippewas’ last dual meet of the season will be a road match against Wisconsin at 1 p.m. Sunday.
