Students studying abroad remains consistent
LCME focuses on three strengths
By Catey Traylor Senior Reporter
Community engagement, sucessful structure, experience cited By David Oltean Senior Reporter
The Liaison Committee on Medical Education cited three areas of strength in the preliminary accreditation report for Central Michigan University’s College of Medicine. The report, made available on CMU’s website on Wednesday, cited engagement with the regional community, a successfully-created structure for implementing a regional approach to medical education and the university’s experience with distance learning as strengths of CMED. Along with the strengths, the report cited six areas of “insufficient progress toward compliance” and 10 areas in “compliance with monitoring” after an LCME survey team evaluated CMED in November. The report also cited the completion of CMU’s on-campus medical facility as a strength. “The College of Medicine’s recent completion, on time and under budget, of its core teaching and administrative facility enhances the college’s ability to recruit both faculty and students,” the report stated. CMED Dean Ernest Yoder said he was excited after hearing the school would receive preliminary accreditation and be one of only 137 M.D.-granting medical schools. “CMED is very pleased with the findings of the LCME,” Yoder wrote in a letter regarding the accreditation report. “The LCME cites CMU’s extensive experience with distance learning and multiple delivery methods for instruction as a key strength along with the engagement of members of the regional community in the creation of CMED’s mission to train future physicians to address a growing shortage of doctors in mid- and northern Michigan.” Six areas were acknowledged as having “insufficient progress toward compliance” in the report, including a need for improvement on the standards of conduct for faculty and students, a lack of instructional faculty, a lack of detailed plans for medical students’ research plans and a need for a better method of evaluating the learning environment. Ten areas were cited as compliant, with a need of monitoring. A LCME | 2A

Master of Ceremonies Jason Whitehouse said “a Pow wow is social gathering” during the first grand entry Saturday at the 23rd Annual Central Michigan University Pow wow. This year the social gathering, based on the theme “Celebrating Life,” ran for a full 10 hours from 12 p.m. to just after 10 p.m on Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Events Center. Attendance was higher than last year’s Pow wow with a little more than 2,000 in attendance. “It was a great turnout overall, from the community to dancers,” said Colleen Green, director of Native American Programs. “This was a great weekend overall, great food and great weather.” The Pow wow meant something different to everyone involved, and for some, it was a celebration. “A Pow wow is a celebration of life, a gathering of people from all over, that started over hundreds of years ago,” said Mike Perez, a Bay City resident. “People travel from all over the country to meet in the middle and celebrate for days, to see people from all over and celebrate dance and culture.” As leader of the Anishnabe Ogitchedaw Warrior Society, a veterans’ group,
Perez said he was honored to carry the Eagle Staff during the first grand entry Saturday. “The Eagle staff is a representation of our culture,” Perez said. The staff is a representation of all Native American nations. Perez was an active dancer during the grand entry, as people walked and danced during the grand entry. “I feel the music, and I have to dance,” he said. “My back will suffer later.” For attendees, a Pow wow can be primary opportunity to learn about culture. Following the grand entry were intertribal dances, which invited everyone, no matter their race, to join. “Let’s just do it,” said Gross Pointe freshman Jen

Stratelak, who then joined the dance with her friend Danielle Hartman, a Gross Pointe resident. They were two of about 20 non-tribal participants who got up to dance. “Everyone is dancing and I just wanted to dance, because I wanted to be a part of it,” Stratelak said. She is studying Anthropology and said she’s interested in learning more about Native American cultures. “I like it. No, I love it,” she said. “We’re having a lot of fun.” In addition to joining in on the traditional Native American dancing, attendees could also sample native food such as Indian tacos, blanket dogs, fry bread and nachos.
“An Indian taco is like a typical taco but has bread instead of a shell,” said Hunter Carrick, a professor of biology. “I liked it.” Attendees could also try award-winning fry bread made from flour, milk, sugar and water from vendor Sista’s Grub. For dancers, a Pow wow is a time to perform and have a good time. Ten-year-old Hayden Recollet said he has been dancing at Pow Wows since he was 11 months old and has already danced at five Pow Wows this year. “I dance the Prairie Chicken dance,” Recollet said. “It’s a dance to just show off.” Recollet said he even made $13 from dancing.

The Study Abroad program has managed to remain a constant for Central Michigan University students despite the rise and fall of Michigan’s economy. The Office of International Affairs and Study Abroad provides about $160,000 in scholarships each year to students studying abroad, and Study Abroad Adviser Amber Schneider said the possibility of getting this money kept study abroad popular even during poor economic times. Additionally, individual departments typically offer scholarships to students studying abroad on a case-bycase basis. “The number of students dipped slightly with the economy, but this year I think we’ll have a large number of students going,” Schneider said. “CMU started putting together a lot of study abroad scholarships to encourage participation, and it’s definitely paid off.” Applications from the 20112012 school year are still being processed, but Schneider said during the 2010-2011 school year, 455 students went abroad and the number has remained consistent. Students are most drawn to study abroad in one of three places, Schneider said. “In 2010-2011, the top three countries were England, Italy and France, although China and Mexico are also very popular study abroad destinations,” she said. Last year, study abroad participants ranged from freshmen to graduate students. The freshmen class had four percent of students study abroad, sophomore class had 17 percent, the juniors had 22 percent, seniors had 39 percent and graduate students had 18 percent, Schneider wrote in an email. To keep participation high, the Office of International Affairs and Study Abroad hosts a number of events geared at students throughout the year, in addition to an extremely detailed website available to the public. “We send information to students by email, hold an annual Study Abroad Fair each September and host a Study Abroad Expo in January. The office also works with faculty and many departments to approve study abroad courses for fulfillment of degree requirements,” Schneider said. “There are also many scholarship opportunities available, both on campus and nationally, to help make study abroad affordable for all students.” Rockford junior Ashleigh Kline studied abroad during the spring 2011 term and went to Angers, France. She said the program she was involved with was planned well, and the cost wasn’t overwhelming thanks to scholarship opportunities. “I received scholarships from the study abroad office, my department and a private donor,” Kline said. “The study abroad office was very helpful to me because they broke down every part of my trip that needed consideration. From how to apply to payment, getting there, living there and travel, the specific program meetings that were required were phenomenal. The study abroad office educated students and not only informs them how to be safe abroad but also how to get the best out of their trip.” email@example.com

“I don’t know why they threw money on the floor (while I was dancing),” he said. “I guess just because they thought I was good.” His mother, Tracy, is also a dancer and competed in the Women’s Fancy dance, which she said had a “very energetic style.” The two traveled from Sudbury, Ontario for the Pow wow. Everything they wore, except for the bells strapped around their ankles, was handmade by Tracy or by friends. For some CMU studentathletes, the Pow wow meant something different entirely, as it relates to the Chippewa name they wear to represent the school when they travel across the nation. “I feel like a lot more student-athletes would appreciate the name more if they came,” said Tamica Harbour, a track and field athlete. “There’s more behind it, like the culture.” The Ohio junior said it was her third year coming to the Pow wow. “Being a Chippewa means a lot,” Harbour said. “It instills pride, honor and integrity, and we should be proud to be a part of it.” For vendors, the Pow wow
was a chance to showcase their various items such as T-shirts, moose skin moccasins, organic goat milk soap, beadwork, jewelry, books, CDs and DVDs. Ken Ratte with his wife, Heidi Leduc, traveled from Quebec to the Pow wow for the first time. The couple travel to 25 to 30 Pow wows a year selling handmade dream catchers and various jewelry. “To me, this Pow wow means commerce,” he said. But outside of commerce, Ratte said he is also a traditional dancer. “I dance for my ancestors to make sure they can continue dancing through me, as my kids will dance for me,” he said. But there is no dancing without drummers. Bear Creek, a 15-man group comprised of men from Ontario and Michigan, won first place at last year’s Pow wow, and received the honor of being the host drum this year. Drumming is evaluated on togetherness, drumming, singing, timing and overall feeling of the song. Lead singer of Bear Creek, Gabe Gaudet, said the drum is made from bull hide, and

the drumsticks are handmade from the flag poles of bikes, sponge material and leather. “We drum to give good energy to the Pow wow and make the dancers dance,” the Toronto resident said. “For me, a Pow wow is a place I can go celebrate, have a good time and be a native guy.” email@example.com

Massachusetts junior Sarah McNeill acts out a sex worker for women who discusses the intriguing details of her career and her love of giving women pleasure in ‘The Women Who Loved To Make Vaginas Happy’ Saturday night during The Vagina Monologues in Plachta auditorium. Central Michigan University brought the production to campus this year to raise money for Women and Girls of Haiti, SAPA and VOX’s 2nd annual Sextival, which raises money for Women’s Aid of Mount Pleasant.
The ‘Vagina Monologues’ brings out more than 600 people Saturday By Sienna Monczunski | Staff Reporter Emily Nuss said the most difficult part of performing in the “Vagina Monologues” was attempting to portray the emotion of a woman who had been sexually abused. “I think we’re all really exhausted. At times it was a bit difficult, because some of the scenes were so emotional,” the Lansing senior said. “I’ve never experienced the trauma of being sexually abused, so it was a bit difficult to portray that emotion.” More than 600 people attended the first two showings of “Vagina Monologues” in Moore Hall’s Plachta Auditorium Saturday. The productions made more than $1,000 in ticket sales. All of the proceeds will go to Women and Girls of Haiti, Voices for Planned Parenthood and Sexual Aggression Peer Advocates. The event, known as V-Day, was planned to raise awareness and help end violence against women and girls. Some of the monologues presented included “Because He Liked to Look at it,” “My Angry Vagina” and “My Vagina Was my Village.” The play featured a combination of humor, facts of sexual abuse, the four letter
word and even the story of a woman who has never looked at her vagina. The spotlight monologue told the story of women affected by the natural disasters of Haiti and New Orleans and women who are sexually abused in the Congo. “Vagina Monologues” was originally written by Eve Ensler who interviewed hundreds of women about experiences they’ve had with their vaginas, with the goal of giving women a voice to talk about things they’ve never talked about before. “It sounded interesting, so I
decided to come see what it’s about,” Fenton sophomore Sean Rositano said. “I’m a bit conservative, so some of it was really shocking, but I understood they had to be that way in order to get their point across.” Before the play, directors Jordan Wyer and Jolie Masters, both Kentwood seniors, thanked audience members for coming.
“It was amazing; they had so much energy,” St. Johns senior Libby Aldrich said. “It’s nice that they fed off the energy of the crowd. The more laughs they got, the more funny they became. They did really well considering they only had six practices.”
Greek life at Central Michigan University has established a “Greeks Clean up the Streets” program designed to beautify and work with the community. Sigma Alpha Epsilon brother Jon Reusch, a Macomb senior, and Jeff Pickler, code enforcement officer for the city of Mount Pleasant, were responsible for setting up the group. Reusch said the main idea of the program is “to improve the image and increase positive awareness of what Greek life can do by providing a service for the community of Mount Pleasant.” Jeff Pickler, who has worked as the city’s code enforcement officer for more than 14 years,
said “This isn’t a one-time litter pick-up. This is going to be an ongoing relationship with students and the community, and we’re very excited about it.” The first clean-up took place after St. Patrick’s Day on March 18. A group of about 40 volunteers from Greek sororities and fraternities met in the Grawn Hall parking lot at 2 p.m. They then divided into groups of about four people and set out to clean Main, Douglas, University, Franklin, High and Washington streets. Those who participated received vests, gloves and plastic bags that were provided by the city for clean-up duties. Also on hand were cookies and bottled water for everyone involved. Both Reusch and Pickler said they were more than happy with
the number of volunteers who showed up to help out. “We were looking for 20 to 24 people when we started, and we definitely exceeded that,” Pickler said. “It was an excellent turnout for our first event.” Reusch said he recruited volunteers by speaking during group meetings such as the Panhellenic Council and through Greek Force. He said he received a lot of positive feedback. “They’re extremely excited to do good for the community and to clean up the area they live in,” he said. Jacob Kobylarz, a sophomore from Westland and a member of Sigma Tau Gamma, said he came out to help because it was such a nice day, and volunteering for the program was an easy way to make a big difference. He
also said he hopes the program relieves any tension there may be between Greek life and residents of Mount Pleasant. “I feel like Greeks have been getting a bad rap lately by having too much fun partying and not showing respect to the community, so I feel like this is a good way to reach out and show we care,” Kobylarz said. Pickler said sometimes people unfairly associate negative ideas about the Greek community, and this was a great way for them to see positive impacts. “This is something where we can visually see improvement, and we can see the accomplishment of a cleaner neighborhood,” he said.

The 2012 primaries and presidential election will be the topic of discussion Tuesday during the final scheduled Speak Up, Speak Out forum at 7 p.m. in the Bovee University Center Auditorium. “Elections 2012: The Power of the Primaries” is the series finale and will be facilitated by communication professor Jeff Drury. The two-hour forum will open with a 20- to 30-minute video before Drury takes over in leading the group discussion until 9 p.m. “The video is to get everyone on the same page and to understand some background information,” Drury said. “The forum is designed for people who have interest in politics but maybe don’t know a lot about it.” Panelists include Central Michigan Life Staff Reporter Theresa Clift, College Republicans’ Nathan Inks, College Democrats’ Alex Middlewood and political science professor J. Cherie Strachan. “I’m very excited about our panelists,” Drury said. “We always try to balance viewpoints, and we wanted to make sure we were representing both parties as the student body is concerned.” Having representation of both a conservative and liberal student group on campus is important in covering multiple view points, said Middlewood, vice president of communications for the College Democrats. Middlewood said the media has given the primaries too much attention, and there
was an overabundance of debates, while major world issues — like the crisis in Syria — receive little coverage. Megan Gill, secretary for the College Republicans, said she agreed there was an excessive amount of debates, though she felt the coverage of the primaries has been reasonable. “The media’s extensive coverage of each primary and caucus is justified, because the nominee has not yet been determined,” Gill said. “However, when you have multiple debates in a single week, candidates merely end up reiterating their talking points, and the debates lose their effectiveness.” Drury anticipates the discussion of the role of gender within the campaign will be a popular topic Tuesday. “With all the stuff going on with Rush Limbaugh, contraceptives, abortion and reproductive health, it should be interesting,” Drury said. “Also we’ll hear about the media and its role in the campaign and how it works at the primary level.” Higher education will be an expected topic of interest as well, given that the audience will be primarily college students. The event is open to the public and is expected to attract students with a wide range of political knowledge. “I think it’ll be a mixture of students,” Middlewood said. “I know a lot of professors offer extra credit to people who go, especially for political science classes. There’s always an opportunity to learn more.”
World-renowned primatologist, anthropologist and conservationist Jane Goodall will be speaking on campus Wednesday in McGuirk Arena. Central Michigan University paid $60,000 to the Jane Goodall Institute to have Goodall come to campus and the event, part of CMU’s intermittent Speaker Series, is free for people who attend, said University Events Director Rob Ebner. Those interested in attending can obtain a free ticket from the CMU Box Office to reserve a seat. The 77-year-old is best known for her work studying chimpanzees of Gombe National Park in Tanzania and and her work on conservation and animal welfare issues. Her speech, “Making a Difference,” will focus on the Gombe chimpanzees and the work of the Jane Goodall Institute. About 3,000 people are
expected to attend, including students and faculty from other universities in Michigan, Ebner said. Jane Goodall Goodall was chosen to come to campus because of the large interest from students in the biology department. “We have one of the largest departments of masters on this campus in biology in that area,” Ebner said. “The Speaker Series goal is really to tie in an educational aspect of the university any time we bring somebody in.” Contribution for the sponsorship of Goodall’s visit came largely from the Provost’s Office and Council of Deans, said Professor of Biology and Speaker Series Committee Chairwoman Anna Monfils.

Midnight release of ‘The Hunger Games’ attracts students in droves By Sarah Donetti Staff Reporter
Lines of excited students filled Celebration Cinema, 4935 E. Pickard Road, on Thursday night, anticipating the midnight release of “The Hunger Games.” About 1,450 tickets were sold prior to the night of the showings and took up several soldout screens. According to BoxOfficeMojo, Thursday’s opening night was the fifth-largest box office success ever, and the film had raked in about $155 million nationally, as of Sunday. The excitement and number of preordered tickets surpassed the expectations of the theater, said Operations Manager Greg Howell. “We originally thought the attendance would be about half of the crowd we got for the ‘Twi-
light’ and ‘Harry Potter’ films,” Howell said. “Once we started selling tickets early on Feb. 22 and saw a ton of tickets being sold out, we began to see it was going to be bigger.” “The Hunger Games,” based on a 2008 novel written by Suzanne Collins, takes place in a post-apocalyptic North America where the nation of Panem holds an annual survival competition between 24 young adults. The main character of the novel, Katniss Everdeen, becomes one of the participants after volunteering to take the place of her younger sister in the competition. Howell said some of the eagerness for the film was probably because of its similarities to “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” in being part of a recent, popular book series. “It has that rabid fanbase that
we love,” Howell said. “It also really helps these films that they’re strongly marketed to females — you didn’t see this kind of marketing toward a female audience 20 years ago.” While waiting in the theater lobby, Big Rapids resident Corbin Hammond said the book’s popularity was partially because of its appeal across many genres. “It’s got stuff for everybody,” Hammond said. “There’s romance, gore and fighting and a great story.” White Lake senior Michelle Vermilya said she read the book in December and liked its attention to detail. “It’s a very graphic and fun read,” Vermilya said. “My favorite character is Peeta, because he seems very genuine.” Assistant Professor of English Language and Literature Joseph

EDITORIAL | Questions the sub-committee on higher education should consider
Octavia Carson Staff Reporter
Equal representation needed in U.S. Senate As I sit here and look at the statistics over and over, my mind is blown. Currently only 17 members of the U.S. Senate are women. I thought my voice was being heard, but clearly it is not. I am being misrepresented in so many ways. Although women make up 51 percent of the United States population, we are not represented this way in the United States political arena. Yet, in other places around the world, women have had more political representation. In 2010, there were 89 other countries ahead of the United States when it came to women in politics. These statistics make me feel ashamed to be an American, but at the same time, they make me feel as though I have a job to do. I need to make others aware of this issue. The United States prides itself on equality and justice for all, but we continue to struggle with it. It was only recently that this information came to my attention, and I learned the fight for equality is continuing even in 2012. I thought our society should have it together by now, but I thought wrong. It was only weeks ago someone asked me if I was a feminist, and I was appalled. I thought to myself, “Do I seem like someone who would be radical?” Then I became educated on what a feminist truly stands for. I learned a feminist is not out there to hate men or make it seem as though women are above all. A feminist is someone who wants equality for all people. If it is that simple, then why didn’t I understand this concept before? Well, the answer is easy. The media often portrays feminists as radical people, and it shapes our opinion of the term “feminist” into something with a negative shadow. A number of men consider themselves feminists as well. There are many men proud to stand up and say they are a feminist. They believe their female counterparts should receive equal treatment. This may be shocking to some people, but why shouldn’t everyone want equality for all? Isn’t that the end goal? It is important to have equal representation in Congress, because if women do not have representation, then overall equality will never be accomplished. Sure, we all can make a change, start to consider ourselves a feminist and become more open-minded about this situation, but in a democracy, permanent change comes in the form of legislation. If there is not an equal representation in Congress, then the laws passed will not always represent equality.

Can there be any justification for recent frivolous spending, and will there ever be a way to make up for it with fundraising? With news that Central Michigan University spent $10 million in reserve funding for the Events Center without telling the public came another point that may have been missed. “Look, if we fall short in our fundraising for the medical school, we will probably use university reserves, (too),” Ross said to the Academic Senate on Feb. 15. That day, he also announced the biosciences building would be the biggest financial investment of the university, with the project slated to cost $95 million. If it’s clear that CMU can’t make enough private fundraising money to pay for the Events Center, how on earth does it plan to make enough money to cover the College of Medicine, the biosciences building or any other future projects? Will a shift toward more online classes really improve student learning or just make more money for the university? There is an increased emphasis toward taking classes online, even for on-campus students. These classes appear to offer less direct instructional contact and collaborative learning, yet they cost no less to enroll in than those taught on campus. Will further pushes toward online learning serve the best interests of students at CMU and colleges across the state, or are such programs merely designed to minimize expenses for the university? Is the CMU Board of Trustees actually active in the decisionmaking process or rather just a group that meets to

approve whatever administrators want? Would a state-wide central governing board be more useful than the current trustees? As it stands, trustees rarely ask questions during their meetings on CMU’s campus, and even more rarely pose hard questions to administrators. A governing board of a university should have disagreements and not rubber-stamp everything sent its way. People who truly care about an institution often disagree about how best to run it. Effective oversight sometimes requires less than cheery relations — a sacrifice our trustees seem unwilling to make. Are the reserve funds being used correctly? It’s been well-documented that the university has had to dip into reserve funds to help fund various projects in the last few years, but is that an effective use of money often characterized as a “rainy day fund?” We venture that it is not, especially given the state’s current economic condition. Is CMU prepared to weather a significant decrease in enrollment? Would it be better prepared had its funds not been spent on such expansive new projects? Why is there such a lack of transparency at CMU? While the details were sent to the state about the funding of the Events Center, the true nature was never publicly disclosed. It had to be uncovered by CM Life. When hard questions were asked in the Academic Senate about online promotional materials still referring to the complex as “fully privately funded,” those references were scrubbed immediately, without making those recent alterations clear on the pages. Was this the proper method of disclosure at a public institution? Are the current projects the university is spending money
on essential for the operation of CMU? Does CMU really need a College of Medicine? Administrators would tell you the answer is yes, but the truth might not be so clear. In fact, according to documents distributed by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education following an onsite assessment in November, CMED was lacking in six distinct areas necessary for a good program. Oakland University, which is also opening a college of medicine, was lacking in none. This begs the question; is CMED the right call for CMU? Will the shared governance committee actually matter? The committee, approved by the Academic Senate, could be the answer to some leadership problems at the university. But it is difficult to see how an administration that has grown quite comfortable existing without oversight would respond to a system of shared governance. Have the concerns brought up in several votes of no confidence against Ross or Provost Gary Shapiro been answered? A wave of votes of no confidence against Ross and Shapiro first began at the A-Senate’s Dec. 6, 2011 meeting. Since then, 17 academic departments along with the Council of Chairs and university librarians have followed suit. Alone, the A-Senate vote was a bold move, but the number of units that have joined it clearly shows there are flaws with CMU’s leadership — flaws that are not going unnoticed. It’s a hard question to ask, but a necessary one, especially because CMU gets nearly $70 million in state funding each year. If there are so many clear issues with this administration, should Ross and the others be left accountable for all that money?

Dear ladies, let’s have some class
This column is dedicated to all of the ladies in Mount Pleasant. Listen up. I know the weather has been gorgeous, and we’re all dying to wear those summer clothes we found on sale during the winter months, but let’s remember to keep it classy. We have reputations to uphold here. For the past two weeks, daytime highs have been around the ‘70s, trees have begun to bloom, the sun has been shining and Chippewas have certainly taken full advantage of the weather. Skipping classes to lay out, frequenting Doozie’s, hosting cook outs and corn hole games have been regular sightings on campus. All of these things remind me of the season I love the most, and the atmosphere in Mount Pleasant when it’s nice out is unlike any other. Unfortunately, the nice weather also drives people to believe they have the right to wear anything they would please. Yes, tank tops, short shorts and sundresses are great summer staples, but when the whole class can see your leopard print bra through your tank that is two sizes too small or we witness your thong fall out of your shorts when you take your seat, you’ve taken it too far. I understand you’ve been cooped up in jackets and jeans all winter and are dying to show off your summer bod, but leave some things to the imagination. Especially when you’re in class. Please. For the sake of us all. I heard a girl in class the other day (leopard print bra girl, actually) say she wished the boys in our lab would stop staring at her, because “they’re all perverts.” It took everything I had not to tell her to sit down and shut up. Moral of the story; if you wear clothes that scream “look at my bra and thong,” boys are going to look at your bra and thong. One more point; as much as I love summer weather and hate to be a “Debbie Downer,” I’d just like to make sure we’re all aware that we live in Michigan, and this streak of fantastic weather probably will not last. For example, in the next week, highs are supposed to range from high 40s to low 60s, thunderstorms are projected for three of the seven days, and on the days it’s not rainy, it’s supposed to be cloudy. I’m not saying it’s time to break out the parkas and snow shoes, but nobody should be surprised when Michigan weather once again screws us all, and we’re stuck in another tornado. That being said, let’s learn, as a gender, to distinguish between an outfit that is appropriate to be worn to the Wayside and an outfit that is appropriate to be worn to a biology lab. Please and thank you, in advance.

Student play ‘The Unsaid’ debuts in Moore Hall’s Theatre-on-the-Side By John Priest Staff Reporter
“The Unsaid,” an original play directed by Alpena graduate student Kevin Currier, debuted Thursday night to a packed house in Moore Hall’s Theatreon-the-Side. Described as a “slam choreopoem,” the production, adapted from original poetry written by the cast and crew by Florida senior Richard Bronson, is part dramatic monologue and part poetry. “The Unsaid” will be showing at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday in the Theatre-on-the-Side in Moore Hall, with doors opening at 7 p.m. Currier called the production “reader’s theater.” “The actors go on stage and present poetry to the audience,” Currier said. The production is comprised of six actors, each of whom alternate reading poetry meditating on the theme of loss, grief and reconciliation.
“It started back in early summer, when Richard lost his mom,” Currier said. “He wasn’t able to talk about it all summer, and he started writing poetry about it. We wanted to expand on that.” Currier’s and Bronson’s main goal is for the audience to relate on a personal level to the characters struggles with grief. “Almost everyone has been through the grieving process,” Currier said. “Anyone who knows grief personally knows the ‘five stages’ don’t exist. It’s a personal experience.” “The Unsaid” is designed to be unconventional; from its postmodern concept — the play has no defined plot or ending — to its immersive, colorful set, designed to represent a fractured sense of grief and personal loss. ���This has to be an emotionally-driven experience,” Currier said. “I want the audience to just let go. The overall idea is to make them think with their emotions. I just want them to feel it.” The script was a collaborative
Pickler said the “Greeks Clean up the Streets” program will hopefully work to form a stronger relationship among Greek life, code enforcement, office of public works and the police. “Students will actually get to meet city representatives in a positive manner, so they can put a face to the name, and hopefully this will develop trust and make a better working relationship,” he said. The program is planned to continue to meet for the rest of the semester and most likely into following semesters. The dates for the meetings will be Saturday and on April 22, 29 and May 6. They will all begin at 1 p.m. in the Grawn parking lot and are open to anyone who wants to help.

effort, with Currier, Bronson and faculty member Sadie Chandler holding a series of workshops with the actors to develop their parts. Actor and Saint Clair Shores resident David Giles, a junior at Mid-Michigan Community College, said the workshop process was extremely helpful. “I’m into acting, not poetry,” Giles said. “I’ve never thought of myself as a writer, so it really helped. We talked about our experiences and brought our ideas in. Things to get us into the mindset for writing poetry. Now I want to write more.” The theater space doubles as an art gallery, where Plymouth artist William Carl Hornshaw Jr.’s work is on display. Hornshaw’s haunting, sculptural paintings, made with polyurethane, are designed to compliment the production’s environment. “I started to cry. It was really moving,” said Taylor Johnson, a Belding sophomore.

Mount Pleasant will have a new vegetarian option for dining out when The Broadway Bistro opens next month. Joe Henning and Will Scott are opening the restaurant at 1010 W. Broadway St. “We’ve noticed there aren’t a lot of places for vegetarians to eat in Mount Pleasant, so we wanted to make sure to cater to those customers, as well as our customers who like to eat healthy,” Henning said. The new restaurant will be serving up fresh sandwiches, soups, paninis and grilled wraps. Low-calorie options can also be found on the menu. The bistro will have a de-

livery service in hopes of catering to people without cars. “This restaurant will be like no other,” Scott said. “We have a lot of healthy food available, and with the delivery service, our customers won’t even have to leave their house or business; we’ll come right to them.” Henning is also the owner of Central Michigan Catering, where he works with Scott. Scott said he has been waiting to open his own business for quite a while. He is currently Henning’s chef at Central Michigan Catering, and the two have known each other for more than five years. Scott said he is ready to be his own boss and is excited
to see where the Bistro will lead him in his career. Carson City senior Lindsey Brown said she is looking forward to The Broadway Bistro opening. “I’m really excited for a healthy restaurant to come to Mount Pleasant,” Brown said. “It opens up a lot of opportunities for jobs, as well as good food.” After remodeling the building, Henning and Scott both said they cannot wait for opening day. The two owners spent two months on the remodeling project and are relieved the restaurant is almost ready to open. They are looking to hire and encourage anyone interested to come by the restaurant to apply. email@example.com

Voter ID laws stir controversy for Republicans, Democrats By John Irwin Staff Reporter
Fears of voter fraud are the forces behind new voter identification laws being passed by states around the country, but some say those fears are overplayed. States such as Georgia, Kansas, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania have passed controversial laws that require eligible voters to show photo ID at the polling place in order to vote, in an effort to cut down on voter fraud. Other states, including Michigan, request photo ID but are not required. In Michigan, if a voter does not have a photo ID, the voter must sign a form saying they are not in possession of ID. Some critics say voter fraud is an overblown issue and is being used as an excuse to disenfranchise the poor and minorities. Political Science Professor James Hill said voter fraud certainly exists but is overplayed. “There is certainly some degree of voter fraud in any

About 100 students were nominated to attend a speaker panel featuring Goodall before her speech at 8 p.m. “About a week before spring break, we asked faculty from the anthropology and biology departments to nominate students who would be interested in asking her questions,” Monfils said. Kelly Jo Baker was nominated by Monfils to attend the
situation,” Hill said. “The question becomes ‘Do you want to disenfranchise the many to get the few?’ Unfortunately, it would appear that the motives of some who claim voter fraud is a huge threat to our democracy mask their real intentions, which have a more partisan purpose.” Political Science Department Chairman Orlando Perez agreed. “The fact is that these moves to establish ID laws are aimed at reducing turnout among minority populations or among students,” Perez said. “They are driven by the Republican Party in order to reduce turnout of traditionally Democratic groups.” Nine states have either passed new voter ID laws or tightened existing ones since the beginning of last year, though the U.S. Justice Department has rejected two of them in South Carolina and in Texas, saying they place an unnecessary burden on minority voters. A 2007 report by the Brennan
Center for Justice at New York University Law School found “it is more likely to be struck by lightning than that (a voter) will impersonate another voter at the polls.” It also found voter fraud cases in Michigan “would amount to a rate at most of 0.0027 percent.” The report showed states with ID laws had the lowest voter turnout rates in the country. The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, disputed the Brennan study, saying it is “clear in its intentions, fuzzy in its methodology and wrong in its conclusions. Such doomsday predictions of widespread disfranchisement are increasingly being exposed as untrue as more legitimate research is performed and reported.” Similarly, a study conducted by the University of Delaware and the University of NebraskaLincoln found “concerns about voter-identification laws affecting turnout are much ado about nothing.”
the book is a must-read.” In the theater lobby, members of the Harry Potter Alliance collected canned goods and donations for the Isabella Community Soup Kitchen as part of their “Hunger Is Not a Game” campaign. Some of the excitement during the movie screenings wasn’t all from the movie alone. Sanford senior Bethany Juen said an intense part of the movie was disrupted
in one of the screenings when one of the padded sections of a wall fell down. “There was a noise in the back of the theater,” Juen said. “When I looked over, there were three people with their arms over their heads holding up this piece of padding. Nobody was hurt, though, so it was pretty funny.”
pre-speech panel. “Jane Goodall was the first person I can remember idolizing early in my life, and I still do,” the Clare junior said. “She emanates magnanimity and undying kindness coupled with an intuitive unprejudiced compassion for all people, animals and the environment.” Baker said she is looking forward to hearing the inspiring knowledge and advice Goodall has to pass on to the audience. Monfils said Goodall is a real pioneer in pursuing things
she has a passion about. “I think that can speak to anyone; it doesn’t have to just speak to students interested in animal behavior,” Monfils said. “I think this is an example of a truly remarkable woman, and regardless if you’re interested in science, she is an enormous role model for women.” A book signing will follow the speech, and Jane Goodall Institute merchandise and memberships will be available for sale on site.
Kony 2012 video promoting wrong issue The recent viral release of the Kony 2012 video has caused a stir amongst student populations across the country, raising awareness about the Lord’s Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony in Northern Uganda. The video may not be quite what it seems though, the Western Herald reports. The problem with the video is simply a misrepresentation of the situation and informa-
and rumors have spread that he is now either dead or in hiding but far away from Northern Uganda. “It is a valid issue, but the way it is used, it is more of a benefit for (Invisible Children),” Hudson said. “Just like what happened with the Red Movement in Africa, it is all publicity and will die out.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Researchers at the University of Michigan may have unlocked the secret to fending off, or at least slowing down, the aging process, the Michigan Daily reports. The key to anti-aging lies within the synthesizing of chemicals to increase calcium flow to cell lysosomes, which serve as recycling centers for cellular waste. “The importance will be similar to the trash-removal system in our daily lives that includes trash bins and janitors,” Haoxing Xu, head of the research team and an assistant professor of molecular, cellular and developmental biology at U-M, told the Michigan Daily. “Increased cellular-recycling activities could provide a treatment for diseased cells with excessive accumulation in the lysosome and/or slow trafficking.” Xu said research will need to continue for at least two more years before commercialization of a drug would be possible. This research includes animal experiments, pre-clinical and clinical research, as the teams tries to find ways to increase calcium flow to diseased cells. The benefits of the new research and potential drug reach farther than simply cosmetic. “This work might provide an alternative strategy to treat lysosomal storage disorders and common neurodegenerative disorders,” Dongbiao Shen, a graduate student research assistant in Xu’s lab, told the Michigan Daily.

Kristin Teubner saved her best performance of the day for the floor exercise. Teubner was named Senior MAC Gymnast of the Year, scoring the highest mark at the entire meet with a 9.925 to take the title on the floor. “I don’t even have words for it,” Teubner said. “I’m just so happy.”

In 28 years, head coach Jerry Reighard has won eight MAC Coach Of The Year honors. On Saturday, he won his ninth. Reighard had to coach the team through an injury-plagued season but was still able to capture first place in the regular season and the MAC Championships.
Sophomore Brittany Petzold took the title of best all-arounder at the meet. Petzold finished with a score of 39.150. Petzold helped carry the team for much of the season and will be counted on as the new leader next year. “It’s good to know that all my hard work in practice paid off,” Petzold said. “It’s just a really good feeling.”

Sophomore Meaghan McWhorter took the title on the vault exercise, scoring a careerbest 9.9. McWhorter told head coach Jerry Reighard before the meet that she was going to score a 9.9. “What a time to finally do it,” Reighard said.
Freshman Taylor Noonan and senior Kristin Teubner shared the title on the balance beam with a score of 9.825. Noonan came to CMU as a balance-beam specialist and has been one of the most consistent scorers this season. “She put together a beautiful routine on the beam today,” Reighard said.
The star of the tournament was CMU sophomore Brittany Petzold. Petzold won first place as an all-arounder, with a score of 39.150. Senior Kristin Teubner finished fourth as an all-arounder and freshman Halle Moraw finished eighth. Reighard was delighted with Petzold’s performance at the tournament. “We are extremely proud of Brittany Petzold,” Reighard said. “I can tell you no other sophomore works as hard as she does at practice. Her title was well-deserved.” Petzold embraced the feeling afterwards. “It felt really good to be first place all-around,” Petzold said. “It’s good to know all the hard work I put in paid off. The team really came together too, and we had each other’s backs. We had a whole bunch of injuries at the beginning of the season, but we just pushed through it to win a championship.” The title was never in doubt. “They were extremely excited, as we led from start to finish,” Reighard said. “It was a tight race at every rotation, but we kept picking up tenths. The story was balance beam, where we had the highest team score.” Before the meet, Reighard preached to his team to go all out instead of being guarded. The team did just that. “We went absolutely all-out today and didn’t hold anything back,” Reighard said. “Nothing lacked today. The effort was what I wanted, and more importantly, the attitude was we are going to win this. They went out and did that.” Sophomore Meaghan Mc-
Whorter took the title on vault with a 9.9. Reighard and McWhorter knew she had the ability to do it. “She comes into practice everyday saying she is going to score a 9.9,” Reighard said. “That hadn’t happened up until today, and what a day to do it.” McWhorter said she had been waiting to do this all year. “I’ve done it countless times in practice,” McWhorter said. “I’ve just been waiting to pull it off at a meet, and I did it at the MAC Championship.” The titles kept coming as freshman Taylor Noonan took first place on balance beam. “She had a beautiful beam routine,” Reighard said. “We predicted that if she put it together at the MAC Championships she would win.” Teubner took home a couple titles herself, as she repeated as the floor event champion, scoring a 9.925, the highest score at the competition, and won senior MAC Gymnast of the Year. Teubner could hardly put her feelings into words. “I’m just so happy about today,” Teubner said. “I don’t even have words for it. I felt really bad about bars after messing up, but my teammates and coaches helped me. I just went out there and did the best I could. It happened to be the best of the day. To be able to perform well all year round and win the senior MAC Gymnast of the Year has been a goal of mine from the start.” The last title of the day was given to Reighard for MAC Coach of the Year. email@example.com

Ryan McCullough sets hammer throw record at LSU Relays Randolph: ‘One of the best openers that I’ve seen.’ By Adam Niemi Staff Reporter
Ryan McCullough started off the outdoor track and field season with a recordsetting performance in Baton Rouge, La. Friday, the Central Michigan senior thrower set a school record in the hammer throw with a distance of 204 feet, 2 inches. It is the 10th-
best distance in the nation so far, according to the Track and Field Results Reporting System. M c - Willie Randolph Cullough also finished 11th in the discus with a distance of 148-07. His performance underscored the successful weekend for the team as a whole throughout the weekend. The weekend was especially unique for director of track and field Willie Randolph. It
was his first time back in the New Orleans area after he left in 2006 to coach at the University of Louisville. “At the beginning of the weekend, it was nervewracking to go back to a place that wasn’t so positive when I left,” Randolph said. “Then it was humbling and exciting, because I got to see former athletes and friends.” Randolph said some of his former athletes drove from up to three hours away to see him. Also, one of Randolph’s former University of New Orleans assistants, Trent Ellis, now coaches at LSU, the host
of the meet. He said he considers it the best start to the season since he began at CMU in 2009. “I think we had a good opener, one of the best openers that I’ve seen since I started here,” Randolph said. The meet was unscored, but strong performances from the 34 CMU athletes who competed at the LSU Relays hints to what could be upcoming. Junior runner Renaldo Powell placed third in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.65 during the first outdoor meet of the season.
Megan Heffner finished fifth in the women’s 400m hurdles with a time of 1:03.09. The women’s 4x400m relay placed fourth with a time of 3:48.04. The men’s relay finished seventh with a time of 3:14.55. “We hope this continues through to the end of the season at conference and nationals,” Randolph said. “We saw a lot of production.” CMU will compete at the Toledo Collegiate Challenge in Toledo, Ohio Saturday. firstname.lastname@example.org

Softball ‘trying to fine-tune’ against Detroit before hitting MAC play By Adam Niemi Staff Reporter
Players on the Central Michigan softball team reflected off of head coach Margo Jonker’s sunglasses as she stood against the fence by the dugout and watched them go through drills. As she answered a question about the upperclassmen on the team stepping up and leading the team, she interrupted herself. “You need your upperclassmen to be the leaders and – Lauren make sure you don’t flip the glove! Keep it down,” she said and returned to the answer, “you need them to set the tone for the whole team.” Jonker said she knows, as the team plays at the University of Detroit on Tuesday, the success of the season rests on whether all the young players progress. CMU has a two-game win streak going into the double-header that begins at 2 p.m. Twelve of the 19 players on the team are freshmen and sophomores. Jonker said she is
preparing the team in oversight of the whole season, instead of specific games. “We’re not preparing for Detroit specifi- Margo Jonker cally,” Jonker said. “Prior to the game, we’ll go over their tendencies, what kind of pitches they throw and things like that.” Senior infielder Molly Coldron leads the team with four home runs and 20 RBIs. She is hitting .333 and has four doubles and a triple. Junior outfielder Macy Merchant leads the team with a .423 batting average. CMU plays its first MidAmerican Conference games in a double-header at Kent State on March 30. “We’re trying to fine-tune different aspects of the game,” Jonker said. “It’s always a matter of progressing.” Jonker said the team has been successful overcoming the

Our hitting is getting better.” The first home game is April 4 against Michigan State at 4 p.m. email@example.com

Team hits walk off to take series with Buffalo, 14-13 CMU starts 2-1 in MAC play By Kristopher Lodes Staff reporter
It didn’t look good for Central Michigan going into the bottom of the fifth inning down 12-4 to Buffalo with the series on the line. But that didn’t faze the Chippewas (11-13, 2-1 MAC), after coming up short Saturday, losing 11-10. The team had an opportunity to redeem itself and did, winning Sunday 14-13 at Theunissen Stadium. CMU, trailing 13-10 in the bottom of the ninth, scored four runs with one out. The winning two-run RBI coming off the bat of senior designated hitter Nate Theunissen. “I was just thinking, I need to find some barrel,” Theunissen said. “Everybody was doing their part getting on base, and I was just trying to keep it going.” After falling behind eight runs, freshman third baseman Joey Houlihan hit an RBI single; then, on a passed ball, junior Jordan Adams scored from third base, making it 12-6. With two outs, senior centerfielder Tyler Hall hit a home run to right field, making it a 12-9 game. “(Buffalo) banged the ball, and we didn’t really have an answer until Dylan Rheault and (Dietrich) Enns came in,” head coach Steve Jaksa said. “Then we were able to put on the rally shoes, and thank goodness for that.” Senior Ryan Longstreth allowed six earned runs on nine hits in three innings. Senior Jon Weaver came in the fourth inning and gave up three hits on three runs. Freshman pitcher Matt Trowbridge lasted just one inning after giving up four
Linebacker added from Holland By Brandon Champion Staff Reporter
Central Michigan head football coach Dan Enos announced the addition of linebacker Nathan Ricketts to the team’s 2012 recruiting class Friday. The Holland native will join the 25 other newcomers previously announced on Feb 1. Last season, he was a Parade Magazine All-American after making 168 tackles for a team that finished 9-3 overall, advanced to the regional finals and posted the first two postseason wins in school history. Rivals, a recruiting website, had him listed as a three-star prospect with offers from Western Michigan and Toledo. He was named to the Associated Press Division 3/4 honorable mention all-state team, selected to play in the 2012 MHSFCA East-West AllStar Game and ranked No. 52 on the Detroit News Blue Chip list. While at Holland High School, he averaged 14 tackles per game and was credited with a career-high 24 tackles in a 56-50 loss to Kenowa Hills last season. Ricketts also caught five touchdown passes last fall on offense. “Nathan will be an outstanding addition to our football program,” Enos said. “He is a tough, athletic player who can help our defense for years to come, and we are looking forward to seeing him in the maroon and gold.” Ricketts will join CMU for preseason workouts in August. The Chippewas are losing captain linebackers Armond Staten and Mike Petrucci after they exhausted their eligibility. firstname.lastname@example.org

hits and two runs. “We were hoping good things would happen when he (Dietrich Enns) went in there, and Dylan (Rheault) was just tired, so we had to get Enns in,” Jaksa said. “He hadn’t thrown in a while and everyone said he was ready, and it looks like he is.” Saturday, the Chippewas were in a similar situation down in the ninth inning in another high-scoring affair, but Buffalo was able to hold off the rally that time as it took game two of the series 11-10. Friday, CMU senior pitcher Zach Cooper held the potent Bulls offense to two a
runs and struck out 10 batters, making him No. 10 all time on the CMU all-time strikeout list. “Big win, especially the way we lost yesterday (Saturday),” Jaksa said. “We know how it is to start in a hole, but it is much better to start 2-1 than 1-2.” The Chippewas hit the road for the next five games, starting Wednesday, before getting back to Mid-American Conference play Friday through Sunday at Bowling Green.

Centerfielder Tyler Hall makes his comeback felt for team By Kristopher Lodes Staff Reporter
Last season, Tyler Hall batted .367, leading the Central Michigan baseball team to its second-straight MidAmerican Conference West Division Championship. He played and started in all 58 games last season, but this season he got off to a different start. The senior centerfielder began the season with an injured leg and was labeled on a week-to-week basis. “I tore my medial meniscus, and I went in and repaired it,” Hall said. “I feel 100 percent, and my legs are getting back to where they were muscular wise.” This week, the Chippewas welcomed back their 2011 MVP, and he made an instant impact. In his first at-bat against Northwood Tuesday, he hit a single up the middle into centerfield. Friday, the team opened up MAC play against Buffalo, and Hall showed his glove and legs are back as well with an over-theshoulder catch in centerfield and then doubled off the runner on first to get CMU out of the inning. Saturday, in a high-scoring game, Hall earned his first two RBIs of the season with a single to centerfield in the third inning and again in the fourth inning. The next day, with CMU down 12-6, he came up after going 0-for-3. He came up with a three-run home run that got his team back in the game. “It was a little slow at the start and I expected it, but I got into a groove,” Hall said. “I started seeing the ball a lot better than I was, and I feel a lot better getting back on the field.” Last season, Hall mainly played third base but now has started his first three games in centerfield giving
“It was a little slow at the start and I expected it, but I got into a groove. I started seeing the ball a lot better than I was, and I feel a lot better getting back on the field.” Tyler Hall senior Eric Wrozek the spot at third, who has been giving the bottom of the Chippewa lineup some pop with several home runs last weekend at Tennessee Tech. “I’m pretty versatile you can put me anywhere, and I can play the position,” Hall said. “I’m just thankful to be playing and getting back on the field.” With Hall being out, head coach Steve Jaksa was able
to find out who could step up around him in the batting order. “With him missing the games, it allowed us (to) figure out who was going to be around him,” Jaksa said. “He is protected well with (William) Arnold, Sammy Russell and (Nate) Theunissen. We have a plethora of guys who can swing the bat.” email@example.com

William Arnold, Jon Weaver create tight-knit catcher-pitcher bond By John Manzo Staff Reporter
About a month ago, Central Michigan senior catcher William Arnold was in the midst of discussing the respect between pitchers and catchers. And that’s when CMU senior pitcher Jon Weaver pulled a low blow, throwing a tennis ball beneath Arnold’s waist. All in fun, Arnold said, “I’ll get you back.” But according to Weaver, he’s still waiting for Arnold’s revenge. Despite their comical personalities, these two — as well as the entire pitching/catching staff — get along well. The pitchercatcher relationship is important, because they work handin-hand, game after game. “I get along with (catchers) all really well, actually,” Weaver said. “Out of all the people I hang out with on the team, I’d say the majority of the time it’s with the catchers, especially Will.” Arnold, who was named the Louisville Slugger National
Player of the Week on Feb. 21 after hitting four home runs and eight RBIs in a weekend series against Troy, wasn’t originally a catcher. The Mount Pleasant native was recruited as a shortstop, but the move was made to put Arnold at catcher – a position he hadn’t played much of since little league. “Catching is a lot of fun,” Arnold said. “It’s definitely a whole different game than anyone ever realizes. It’s much more mental than any other position, and I definitely enjoy that part of the game.” Head coach Steve Jaksa is glad the change has worked out. He said Arnold’s passed-ball count is down, and Arnold’s athletic ability made the switch effective. “He’s a good athlete, and we’re able to do that,” Jaksa said about Arnold’s position change. “It’s been really good for him and really good for us. It’s a twoway street.”
Arnold is in the midst of his second season as a catcher, and he’s making strides. Last year, assistant coach Jeff Opalewski decided what pitches were to be thrown throughout the course of a game. Now, Arnold is in command. “Will calls his own game, and I don’t think I’ve shook him off, maybe once,” Weaver said. “He knows what I want to do, and we just go out and do it.” Arnold said he gets along with all of the pitchers, but the bond between him and Weaver is tight because of their days on the same summer league team. The two have been a part of the Lima Locos’ baseball program for the past two years in Lima, Ohio, and this tight-knit relationship has built trust that has branched to all the pitchers and catchers. “I think the more they learn each other, the more they trust each other,” Jaksa said. “There’s a trust that’s so very important.” firstname.lastname@example.org
