Presidential candidate Ron Paul to speak in Plachta Saturday By Ben Harris Senior Reporter
With the Michigan primaries fast approaching, Central Michigan University will see one of the contenders for the Republican nomination speaking on its campus. Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will speak at 6 p.m. Saturday in Warriner Hall’s Plachta Auditorium. Doors will open to those
who sign up for vouchers beforehand at ronpaulatcmich. eventbrite.com/ at 5 p.m., and remaining general admission will begin at 5:30 p.m. Paul was invited to speak by CMU Campus Conservatives. Campus Conservatives President and Mount Pleasant senior Taylor Jackson said the registered student organization is honored to bring Paul to speak at CMU. “This is an opportunity to
engage the community in a critical discussion on solutions to the challenges facing our country. Campus Con- Ron Paul servatives has always been about bringing together the extended conservative family for thoughtful discussions,” Jackson said
in an email. “This promises to be a great opportunity for students and the broader community to hear from a major voice at such a critical time in our country’s history.” Jackson said the event is designed to engage the community, including students, in discussions about possible solutions to problems facing America but that the event does not constitute an en-
dorsement by himself or the RSO. “(Campus Conservatives) do not endorse any single candidate,” Jackson said. “I’m an advocate of promoting that critical discussion and would host any candidate who wanted to come.” In January, Paul won CMU College Republicans’ primary straw poll. Keith Voeks, assistant director in University Events, said
University Events offered a number of different venue choices to Paul’s campaign managers, who decided on Plachta Auditorium. He said a sound system with technicians was ordered, along with custodians to clean the building, costing $933. Jackson said the cost will eventually be borne by the Campus Conservatives.

Science, Technology, HP colleges slated to receive most funds By David Oltean Senior Reporter
The Science and Technology and Health Professions colleges will receive the most in academic prioritization funding tabbed for Central Michigan University’s six colleges and Prof Ed program. According to funding documents provided by Provost Gary Shapiro, the Science and Technology College is tabbed to receive $880,296, while Health Professions will get $857,000. Combined, the two colleges will get more than 47 percent (24 and 23 percent, respectively) of the more than $3.6 million University President George Ross authorized to Central Michigan University’s six colleges and Prof Ed program. Criteria for ranking programs included room for enhancement, enrollment rates, employment oppor-

tunities and expected future enrollment demand. Out of the 401 programs, there were 34 Priority 1 programs and 88 Priority 2 programs. The prioritization, based off recommendations from deans and their advisory councils, along with Shapiro, ranked academic programs from Priority 1 through 5. All Priority 1 and some Priority 2 programs received portions of the funding. The College of Business Administration will receive $780,000, about 21 percent of the available amount. After that, the College of Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences, Communication and Fine Arts and Education and Human Services have been allocated less than 20 percent combined.

Proposed legislation may prevent grad. students unions
Motivational event draws 250 students
By David Oltean Senior Reporter
A recently proposed bill that may prevent graduate student research assistants from unionizing was discussed in a Michigan Senate Government Operations committee Tuesday. The proposed bill, Senate Bill 0971, would remove the collective bargaining rights and entitlement to representation of the more than 2,000 GSRAs in Michigan. State Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe, proposed the bill Feb. 15 and chaired Tuesday’s committee meeting. The proposed bill comes on the heels of a group of graduate students’ efforts to overturn a Michigan Employment
By Ryan Fitzmaurice | Staff Reporter Two hundred and fifty students absorbed personal revelations Monday at the motivational program New Year, New Life. The event’s creator and host, Milford junior Alexander Chouinard, said he has been working on the program extensively since his freshman year. The event, held from 8 to 9:30 p.m. in Pearce Hall 128, featured an introduction from Leadership Institute Director Dan Gaken. The program, according to its mission statement, aimed to be the most “successful and influential motivational program in the history of Central Michigan (University).” Chouinard said he doesn’t know if the program lived up to that goal, but he is confident it had a powerful effect on its participants.
Midland juniors Lauren Butler laughs with her fiance Ben Puckett as the two discuss “road blocks” in their life Monday evening during “New Year, New Life” in Pearce 128. “New Year, New Life” is a program created by Highland senior Alex Chouinard to help students reach true fulfillment in their lives.
“I haven’t been here for the history of Central Michigan; I haven’t seen every single motivational program that has happened on campus,” Chouinard said. “What I do know is that when you can get a group of students dedicated to making others lives better to bring in a group of over 200 people, you have a very successful program.” Chouinard said the most
powerful part of the evening came halfway through when he had students take part in what he called “the pointing exercise.” In it, he directed students to try and point crosswise against their body as far as they could. Then he had students close their eyes, and imagine pointing even farther. A NEW YEAR | 2a
black history month
Dick Gregory talks comedy, civil rights in keynote By Jessica Fecteau Senior Reporter
kaitlin thoresen/assistant photo editor
Comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory speaks in Warriner Hall’s Plachta Auditorium Tuesday night to a full audience as part of Black History Month.
You don’t go to school to learn how to make a living; you go to school to learn how to live, civil rights activist and comedian Dick Gregory told a crowd of about 800 people at his Black History Month keynote speech. “The No. 1 cause of death in America today is sleep deprivation, and I learned that when I went to college,” Gregory said Tuesday night in Warriner Hall’s Plachta Auditorium. “Take care of yourself. If you don’t have no money tonight, you’re not going to die. If you didn’t eat today, you’re not going to die. If I hold your nose
and mouth for 30 seconds, you’re dead; why? The most important thing on this planet is oxygen — and it’s free.” Multicultural Academic Student Services hosted the event as part of their celebration of Black History Month. University President George Ross introduced Gregory, calling attention to the comedian’s legacy as a civil rights activist. Gregory focused his speech around thanking Martin Luther King Jr. for his accomplishments. In 12 years, one person organized a movement based on a universal God and changed the entire planet, Gregory said. Instead of attending their usual Tuesday night meetings,
the Organization for Black Unity met in the auditorium for Gregory’s speech. “It’s important for us to come to as many black history events that we can,” said OBU President and Ypsilanti senior Jenee Graham. “It’s the month we can celebrate our heritage.” Although Gregory’s speech focused on serious topics, humor was prominent throughout his speech as well. “I was there when we used to call it Negro History Week,” he said. “And now it’s a month. We didn’t know any better that you guys give us a month — and it’s February with all those damn days missing.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Relations Committee ruling in 1981, which declared GSRAs as students. “An individual serving as a graduate student research assistant or in an equivalent position and any individual whose position does not have sufficient indicia of an employment relationship is not a public employee entitled to representation or collective bargaining rights under this act,” the proposed bill stated. Amber McCann, Richardville’s press secretary, said the proposed bill stemmed from conversations Richardville had with research assistants from the University of Michigan who did not wish to be unionized.

We didn’t have enrollment patterns but had projected enrollment. We didn’t have quality measures in terms of faculty publications because we were hiring faculty, so it was included to be reviewed, but it was somewhat outside the process.” Kathryn Koch, College of Education and Human Services dean, said she was not surprised by the amount of funds given to her college. “This whole prioritization

On Thursday, the U-M Board of Regents called an emergency meeting to vote to oppose the bill. The Detroit Free Press reported that the board voted in a straight-party line, six Democrats voting against it and two Republicans voting for it. “The bill is pretty concise,” McCann said. “Really, this is born out of discussions that the majority leader had specifically with research assistants at U-M that felt that they would be faced with the imminent possibility of being unionized.” Ruthanne Okun, director of Michigan’s Bureau of Employment Relations, said MERC has a case pending on whether GSRAs are classified as students or employees. Okun said a 1981 ruling by MERC against GSRAs from unionizing, graduate student teaching assistants were still allowed to organize. “The question that the judge from the Michigan administrative is determining is whether the facts have changed since the 1981 ruling,” Okun said. McCann said Richardville is not concerned about differentiating between teaching assistants and GSRAs, and graduate gard, and I look forward to (his visit). Some of his economic policies I don’t agree with, but as far as his social views, I can follow the line with some of those. I won’t vote for him, but I respect him.” Paul makes it clear that there is a definite choice to make in the upcoming election, English said. “(It is about) whether we believe the government is there to support and invest in its people or whether the government is there to pull out the rug from under our feet, and I believe that’s the choice in 2012. That will pretty much be the name of the game, as far as I’m concerned. Do we invest in our people, invest in education, invest in clean and renewable resources? Or and funding process have been jointly developed with input from all sides,” Koch said. “I understand why it is that we received the funding that we did and next year, when we’re asked for more recommendations, we’ll hopefully be able to prove we made good use of this year’s funding.” Koch said if Priority 4 and 5 programs are eliminated or combined in her college, it may strengthen it for the future. “With the Priority 4s and 5s, I think in the long term that it’s going to strengthen the college and departments to change certain programming,” Koch said. In addition to the Academic Prioritization funding, $2,163,000 will be reallocated from college resources to help high-priority programs.

[NEWS] student teachers will still be viewed as public employees. “Research assistants are there simply because they’re working on their own academic pursuit in conjunction with the university,” McCann said. Cedar Springs graduate student Michelle Campbell, vice president of Central Michigan University’s Graduate Student Union, said she was concerned about the wording of the proposed bill and questioned what the equivalent position mentioned in the legislation might include. “The big problem I have with the proposed wording of the bill that was introduced is that it says ‘graduate research assistants or an equivalent position,’ but they don’t define exactly what that equivalent position is,” Campbell said. Midland graduate student Jim Kowalski, the union’s treasurer, said some of CMU’s graduate assistants work in both research and teaching roles, making their employment title difficult to define. “We have a number of people whose appointment is partially research and partially teaching,” Kowalski said. “So we’re wondering what type of interpretation would be applied to those people.” firstname.lastname@example.org
do we have not (have those things)?” he said. Libby Aldrich, President of the RSO VOX, Voices for Planned Parenthood, said she is glad Paul is coming to campus but has a problem with Paul’s seeing abortion as a legal issue rather than a privacy issue — something she said is between a woman and her doctor. “It’s great to get people involved in our government,” the St. Johns senior said. “However, I disagree with his idea of limited government everywhere (except) in women’s privacy and reproductive health rights, especially since he’s a gynecologist and should know better.” email@example.com

“It was incredible, because almost every single person was able to point farther then they initially could. Everyone suddenly realized at once that if they truly believed in their heart that they could do something, then they could do it. That was truly a remarkable moment, and everyone in the room knew it,” he said. Gull Lake sophomore Benjamin Hoeksema, who helped organize the program, said he felt the night was a success. “There was a lot of excitement in the room, a lot of students got a lot out of it,” Hoeksema said. “What stood out was how everyone knew who Chouinard was and was invested in what he had to say.” Hoeksema said despite the program’s success, there are no concrete plans for another event. “Me and Alex talked about this after the conference,” Hoeksema said. “We have no plans at the moment, but we were both ecstatic at how everything
went, and we will both be thinking and praying on it.” Chouinard said if a similar program were to happen again, he would try to go through a university department or organization. “I’m sure it’s going to happen in the future,” Chouinard said. “(And) if it does, I want to try and reach an even larger audience and an
even larger amount of students. Being sponsored by an organization would give us that reach.” Chouinard said he wants to be careful not to take too much credit. “I want to be modest,” he said. “The focus shouldn’t be on me; it should be on the students who went to the program and made a difference in their own lives, who discovered something about themselves.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Graduate fights for equal treatment of disabled students By Catey Traylor Senior Reporter

Musician and actor Thomas Ian Nicholas talks about his career on his Gibson tour bus Monday morning shortly before performing with the Thomas Nicholas Band in the Bovee University Center’s Rotunda. The band, on the American Pie Reunion Tour, came to CMU to promote the release of the final chapter of the American Pie series.
rookies’ second act ‘American Pie’ actor Nicholas brings musical talent to campus By Jessica Fecteau | Senior Reporter
The Bovee University Center served up a lunchhour jam session Monday. About 65 people rotated in and out of the UC’s Rotunda to watch actor and musician Thomas Ian Nicholas’ band perform. Nicholas is best known for his role as Kevin in the “American Pie” series and for starring as Henry Rowengartner in “Rookie of the Year.” Program Board hosted the performance, one of 20 college stops on his tour for promoting the final chapter of the “American Pie” series, “American Reunion.” “It’s the first time I had a song in one of the ‘American Pie’ films,” Nicholas said. “When we did the first film so many years ago they did a lot of promotion on college campuses.” Although the first “American Pie” film has always been his favorite, Nicholas said “Ameri-
can Reunion” is the best sequel. “I had a lot of fun writing ideas or inspiring Seann (William Scott) to be funnier with Stifler,” Nicholas said. “Kevin doesn’t get to do any of those things, so we came up with some good bits together. But of course, he’ll take all the credit.”
Budget cuts have forced the department of sociology, anthropology and social work to offer fewer classes during the summer. Chairwoman Brigitte Bechtold said because of budget cuts, the department will be cutting two researchmethod classes that would normally be offered in the summer. “We have two professors who are retiring after the semester,” Bechtold said. “This doesn’t impact the summer schedule at all, however, because we’re able to hire people to teach the courses on
a fixed-term contract. We’ve been told by the dean that due to budget cuts, only the most important courses can be offered this summer.” The search for permanent faculty member replacements will begin full-force in fall 2012. The names of the retiring faculty have not been released. As opposed to the eight courses typically offered by the department, only five will be available this summer. “We’re only offering a total of five classes,” she said. “We’ll have options for the programs that require internships and the courses that relate to that. Also, we’ll have two field-school courses in

Sociology offering fewer classes this summer By Catey Traylor Senior Reporter
A 1998 Central Michigan University graduate is fighting to ensure what he claims should be equal treatment of all students at the university. Andrew Helmboldt, in a recent letter to Central Michigan Life, said teacher education student Kelly Laatsch is on track to receive her diploma in May. Laatsch, a Freeland senior, is working on completing her student teaching requirements but has a disability that entitles her to an interpreter that translates English using American Sign Language. Helmboldt said Laatsch requested an interpreter and was told by Karen Edwards, director of student teaching and Susie Rood, director of Student Disability Services, that if she were to implement use of her mandated reasonable accommodation, she would not successfully pass her student teaching requirements. When contacted, Helmboldt said Edwards and Rood said a section of the Michigan Department of Education Teaching Technical Standards indicates (students) should “understand and speak in English.”
Laatsch can do so, he said, but needs the assistance of an interpreter. According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Civil Rights website, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 protects disabled students from instances like this. “Section 504 forbids organizations and employers from excluding or denying individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to receive program benefits and services. It defines the rights of individuals with disabilities to participate in, and have access to, program benefits and services,” the website states. Edwards acknowledged the incident when contacted but declined comment. Rood did not return messages. Helmboldt said numerous alumni are concerned about this instance. “Kelly’s situation was brought to my attention by a friend of mine who works as an interpreter. He asked that I write a letter to bring attention to the issue, and I believe numerous people have written to CMU about it,” he said. “Hopefully we can get this resolved.”
anthropology.” Courses in research methods will not be available this summer. Of the five courses being offered, three of them are faculty-led study-abroad courses. “One study abroad course is a social and criminal justice course taking place in Brazil; there’s an anthropology course in Belize and another opportunity for students to do field work in Bolivia,” Bechtold said. Dianne DeSalvo, Study Abroad program director, said study-abroad courses are gaining popularity, particularly those in the field of anthropology and social work.
Students going to Belize will be there for 10 days. The Brazil program is 14 days, while the Bolivia program selects two or three students to stay the entire summer, supervised by Sergio Chavez, professor of sociology, anthropology and social work. “Applications are still coming in. The goal is to have 10 to 12 students per class,” she said. “There was enough interest in the Belize anthropology program that a second class was started. Therefore, some students will be going in May, and some are going in July.” firstname.lastname@example.org
The latest poll shows Rick Santorum’s lead over Mitt Romney has vanished as the Michigan Republican primary slated for next Tuesday gets closer. On Tuesday, the Michigan Information and Research Service released a poll showing Romney, former governor of Massachusetts, leading former Pennsylvania Senator Santorum 32 percent to 30 percent among likely primary voters, a statistical tie. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 points. A week ago, a poll done for MIRS by Mitchell/Rosetta Stone showed Santorum with a nine-point lead. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich comes in third at nine percent in the most recent poll, and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas finished fourth with seven percent. Twentytwo percent of voters say they are undecided. The poll underscores just how volatile and unpredictable the race for the Republican presidential nomination has been. Clinton Township senior Stephanie Jaczkowski, a member of College Republicans, said the messy process will help the GOP come general election time. “I think the ups and downs of the primary season will be beneficial to the eventual nominee,” Jaczkowski said. She said the controversies
that surround all the candidates will be “old news” come November. Jaczkowski said the volatility may be because of Republican voters’ high standards. “(Republicans) are looking for someone who is wellversed enough to debate President Obama, and somebody who is willing to make tough decisions to balance the budget and shrink the debt,” Jaczkowski said. Romney has struggled to connect in his home state, once considered a lock for his campaign. His 2009 New York Times column against the bailouts of General Motors and Chrysler, titled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt,” may be part of the reason for his struggles. Meanwhile, Santorum has won over Republican voters recently with his conservative social stances. Trying to win back support, Romney made trips to Grand Rapids and Bloomfield Hills last week. In addition, the proRomney super PAC Restore Our Future has spent more than $1.5 million on commercials in Michigan. The Romney campaign, to combat sluggish poll numbers nationwide, has spent enough money over the past two months that the campaign would be out of money within 20 days, according to Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight blog for the New York Times. email@example.com
CMU looks to step up recycling in nationwide competition this year By Shelby Miller Staff Reporter
RecycleMania has hit Central Michigan University. The annual, 10-week nationwide recycling contest began on Jan. 22 and is currently in its fourth week of competition following two weeks of practice. This year, 552 colleges and universities throughout the U.S. and Canada are competing by tracking the amount of recycling and trash collected weekly at each school. Alpena graduate assistant Sarah Reisner is co-chairing the event for the second time. “This year will mark CMU’s fourth year of participation in RecycleMania,” Reisner said. “We hope to make major improvements in our recycling efforts from years past.”
In 2011, CMU placed 176 out of 288 participating schools. Residence halls have since stepped up the push, posting signs in each hall and encouraging students to recycle their paper products, cans and bottles, cardboard, trash, food service organics and e-waste. “We have room to improve,” Reisner said. “Every year, CMU’s mission is to beat our previous year’s results, as well as to perform well against schools of similar size, such as Western.” Over the past few years, Western Michigan University has placed ahead of CMU, and to improve, the university is aiming to do more outreach to students through presentations, competitions and prizes. “We bought RecycleMania stainless steel water bottles, travel coffee mugs and other prizes
to give away at the Down Under Food Court at our trivia table,” she said. The recycling and green cleaning program also has an outreach team who will be holding events around campus, such as presentations and recycling floor wars in the Towers Residence Halls. Livonia sophomore Laura Gonzalez works with CMU recycling to do pick-ups in the Towers and outreach with students. She said she would like CMU staff and students to realize how great of an impact recycling has been, not only on the community and school, but on themselves as well. “Eighty percent of our garbage is recyclable,” she said. “There is a huge global problem with waste.” Gonzalez said it is important tstudents and staff know what
to recycle and the advantages of recycling. “RecycleMania is really beneficial to everyone,” she said. “Whether you live off campus or on campus, RecycleMania helps everyone become involved and become aware of what is going on.” Students and staff can easily become involved in RecycleMania by simply recycling on campus, Reisner said. “Staff are also promoted to do their office cleanouts this time of year as a way to decrease their clutter and to get their recycling of papers and books done while we are in the competition,” she said. Currently, CMU is ranked 47 with a 35.01 percent recycling rate. firstname.lastname@example.org

EDITORIAL | University of Michigan regents’ involvement far cry from CMU trustees’
A study in contrasts
ric ward, might sound unusual to a typical Central Michigan University student. The board’s vigilance in matters important to the school and their clear willingness to question and critique internal decisions is a far cry from the attitude and actions of the CMU Board of Trustees. While the transition to an elected board might not be what CMU needs, the U-M board’s vigilance demonstrates the ways in which oversight can be used to monitor the actions of monolithic public institutions. Our current rubber stamping committee hearkens back to a time when CMU was a relatively small school, not one of the top 100 largest universities in the country or the fourth largest in the state.
he University of Michigan Board of Regents should be lauded for its continued involvement in matters important to the school.
Most recently, the board held an emergency session to vote on whether to oppose proposed Michigan legislation that would prohibit some graduate students at state universities from unionizing. Under Senate Bill 971, proposed by State Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe, graduate student research assistants at Michigan public universities would not be considered public employees and, as a result,
prohibited from unionizing. The regents decided six to two to oppose the measure, but whether they voted for or against the legislation is beside the point. Their involvement in issues which concern the university from without, in the case of the aforementioned legislation, and within, in the case of calling for external investigations of an alleged sexual predator being allowed to continue work in a U-M hospital pediat-
The U-M regents met in an unprecedented emergency session to deal with a bill that would affect graduate students statewide, not only at their school. Instead, the issue, one with serious implications for students, faculty and people on all parts of the political spectrum, has been met with deafening silence. Other serious issues raised by students, faculty and this Editorial Board have been met with the same silence, or muddled non-statements at best. There have been no emergency meetings, no badly needed investigations or even acknowledgement of issues of great importance to this university. It’s quiet enough on campus to hear a pin drop. When will we hear the other shoe?

Santorum’s education plan lacking The topic of education is always a key issue in Presidential elections, and 2012 will be no different. On Sunday, Rick Santorum went on CBS, saying he wants parents to take a stronger role in shaping education. Santorum has been a longtime supporter of homeschooling, and some in the media unfairly twisted what he said to make it sound like he wants to end public education. Nothing could be further from the truth. What he said was, “Local communities and parents should be the ones who are in control of public education.” When pressed for his overall plan, he said, “First I’d get the federal government out … To the extent possible, with respect to mandates and designing curriculum and the like, I would get the state government out,” saying he wants parents to be “in charge, working with the local school district to try to design an educational environment for each child that optimizes their potential.” In terms of the federal government, the Department of Education has turned into a monstrosity of mandating test standards and failed policies like No Child Left Behind. The constitutionality of the Department of Education is shaky, at best, with supporters of the department saying Congress has the right to regulate education under the Commerce Clause. The existence of the department violates the 10th Amendment, and the right to regulate education should rightfully be left to the states. If Americans want a Department of Education, the Constitution should be amended to truly enable Congress to regulate education; however, such an amendment is unlikely to pass, because it would require lawmakers to admit the department has been running unconstitutionally for the past 32 years. In lieu of abolishing the department, the department’s role should be shrunk to only stepping in as a last resort. As for Santorum’s plan to decrease state involvement, this also violates the 10th Amendment. The federal government has no right to tell a state they cannot implement mandates or design curriculum. The people who know what students need most are often found at the local level. Teachers in Detroit know what Detroit students need a lot more than a bureaucrat in Lansing. The role of states in education should be setting broad standards and ensuring these standards are upheld. Struggling districts like Detroit may be unwilling to admit there is a problem until it is too late, and it should be the state’s job to keep school districts in check, but when it comes time to fix those problems, it should be fixed at the local level when feasible. Broad solutions that give nearcomplete power to local communities will be just as harmful to students as placing too much power in the hands of the federal government.

Catholic Church contraception issues are a Constitutional issue The past month has pushed major social issues such as abortion and contraceptives to the forefront of political debate. Two weeks ago, President Barack Obama presented a “compromise” to the Catholic Church in regard to the HHS mandate for all insurance plans to pay for contraceptives. The compromise is laughable; merely an accounting gimmick. Under the “new” plan, Catholic schools, hospitals and charities will still be forced to purchase insurance plans that cover contraceptives. HHS’s mandate covers all FDA-
approved contraceptives, including morning-after pills and sterilization. All of these directly violate the Church’s teaching on the dignity of human life and beauty of human sexuality. The issue is not whether you agree with the Church’s stance on contraception. The issue at hand is whether Americans still value the Constitution, religious freedom and the “Free exercise thereof.” Opponents to the Catholic Church’s teachings have propped up various straw man arguments as to why violating
the Church’s conscience is constitutional, such as Catholic use of contraceptives. Morality in the church has never been dictated by the masses. Perhaps, that is one way it has remained the largest provider of relief in the world. Today, Americans should not be debating whether or not contraception is a good or bad thing. We cannot risk being distracted from the true problem religious freedom. Stephanie Jaczkowski Clinton Township senior

folks and let them know we need their help! We need a blend of Emergency Managers, Snyder’s financial acumen and some Tea Party members who will come and clean house. And, the students need to mount a statewide media campaign. You need to talk like Limbaugh and Hannity and get on the Detroit talk stations, Grand Rapids, the Tri-Cities and start talking about the wasteful spending.
I know we’ve got talented students who can do this. Great editorial. Lansing is the last hope to get CMU turned around. Driver, Monday I think the problem here is partly the lack of accountability of the Trustees. We need elected trustees like U of M and MSU. The current board has no reason to bow to public pressure, as they are unelected appointees.

Stop sleeping in class I have never fallen asleep in a class before, and I honestly don’t know how people do it. There are more than a few classes out there students consider boring — like watchinga-blade-of-grass-grow boring. Whether the professor has a monotone voice or the material is presented in a way that lacks depth or passion, every one of us has had a class where glances at the clock are constant. But no matter how boring the class is, I find it impossible to doze in a deep, snore-filled slumber. Maybe it’s my paranoid instinct. I feel like if I were to fall asleep in class, I would be placing myself in a vulnerable position. I have this fear that someone will mess with me while I’m sleeping. I know it’s highly unlikely, but for some reason, I would not want to risk someone playing a cruel joke on me. I can just picture someone ripping off a piece of paper and tickling me on the ear in some huge lecture hall. I also know when I sleep, I sleep very deeply. A fire alarm probably couldn’t wake me up. What if I fall asleep in class and someone does not wake me up? How embarrassing! Not to mention, when I sleep in my bed, I wake up with white crust on my pillow from drooling; apparently I sleep with my mouth wide open. According to many sources, I have a loud, distinctive snore I don’t want to punish anyone in my class with that. But most of all, I would feel extremely guilty. Maybe I’m too nice, but it feels a bit rude falling asleep on a professor. Some seem like they would be offended, even angry, if someone fell asleep in their class. My guilty conscious won’t let me do it. But believe me, there have been times where I have literally forced my eyes to stay open. Every one knows how it feels to nod off; when your head starts to fall, then you jerk it upward and strain your eyes to remain open. Nodding off sucks, because it happens in cycles, too. I hate nodding off and would rather just lay my head on the desk and rest my eyes for a bit, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. I’ve had so many friends tell me they sleep in class regularly, and I see people do it all the time when I’m in class, so I feel like I’m left out of some amazing ability to escape a boring lecture. I know it’s wise to get abundant rest the night before so sleeping won’t happen in class, but sometimes I have to stay up so I can get things done. We are in college, and a lot of the time there’s a choice between getting all of your work done, having a social life or sleeping, and it seems like I’m forced to pick two out of the three.

Garcia project offers opportunity for students to learn about disabilities By Brittany Wright Staff Reporter
Seemingly simple tasks for most people still pose challenges for others, and that is exactly what the David Garcia Project aims to demonstrate. On Monday night in Kulhavi Hall, the program demonstrated for eight people just how difficult daily tasks can be for people with disabilities. The David Garcia Project is designed to educate people about the different types of disabilities people may have. The presentation is a simulation to show what it would be like if you have certain impediments. The four disabilities touched on were auditory, learning, visual and physical. The program asks students to do simple, everyday tasks such as taking a message, writing their name and taking a walk, all while experiencing barriers they normally

“It’s all hitting me now,” the Alma junior said after realizing who the lead singer really was. “I think it was the beard that threw me off.” The noon lunch-hour program was a hit with Administrative Clerk Jeanette Smith. “I think he’s awesome,” she said. “I love live music, and I appreciate people who can do live music.” As a fan of the “American
wouldn’t deal with. Students would take a message while they had ear plugs in their ears. While writing their name, they could only write it while looking in the mirror, and they had to take a walk with goggles that simulated a certain degree or type of blindness. Belleville junior Nicole Infante has been involved with the David Garcia Project for about two years. “It was really interesting to me, so I got involved,” Infante said. “My friend is now the coordinator, and this is my second year as a facilitator.” David Garcia was a 9/11 victim who suffered from an incurable and degenerate eye disease in which his vision worsened as he aged. Garcia was still active however, in his college life, social life and now in his after life as his memory lives on. The program was named after him to pass on his legacy and educate those about disabilities.
Birch Run senior Rhane Martin has also been involved with the project for about two years. He said he is involved, because it will help in his career. “I am going into physical therapy, and I wanted to be able to know how to deal with people with physical disabilities,” Martin said. Detroit freshman Chelsea Moss participated in the event and said she came along with a friend to support her, because she attended for a class. “This was a good experience to have; it gives you a different understanding on what some peoples’ lives are like and why they may have certain animosity,” Moss said. “My favorite part of the project would have to be drawing using the mirrors; it’s truly amazing to see how difficult it was to draw while looking in the mirror.”
Pie” movies, Mount Pleasant senior Vinnie Schiavi came to see Nicholas’ musical talent front and center. “I heard them when I was walking by, and it turned out to be really good, so I decided to stay for the rest of it,” Schiavi said. “He seemed really down to earth and really appreciative of us being here.” Being a musician and an actor gives Nicholas the opportunity to use two different sides of creativity at the same time, he said. “I think music is more of a representation of me,
because I’m pulling all the strings and I’m writing all the music and doing what I want to do, whereas acting is taking direction,” he said. Nicholas ended the show leaving the audience with: “You can tell people later on you were here when no one else was,” he said. “Because I’m going to keep touring and I’m going to keep playing, and one day you can say you were there. So tell your friends about us, unless you think we suck, then just don’t say anything.”

Mount Pleasant officials consider income tax study Commissioners cite need to boost local revenue By Jackie Smith Staff Reporter
Mount Pleasant officials will look into the feasibility of an income tax, citing future needs to boost revenue and maintain the current level of services. Last week, city commission-
ers were given a rundown of Mount Pleasant’s recent financial history before giving city staff the green light to search for a firm capable of completing a study of what potential an income tax could have. City Manager Kathie Grinzinger pointed to two major areas that could continue to weaken Mount Pleasant finances — an $8.6-million loss in state-shared revenue over 11 years and proposed legislation in Lansing that could eliminate

the local collection of personal property taxes. “I don’t want to raise anyone’s blood pressure with them thinking, ‘Oh, they’re going to do this income tax,’” Commissioner Sharon Tilmann said at the Feb. 13 meeting. “No, we’re trying to study what would be the best alternative for the city so we can continue to provide service.” The city has already invested several thousand dollars into exploring an income tax twice
in little more than two decades, according to city documents. First in 1990, Mount Pleasant employed the Ann Arbor-based firm, Stauder, Barch & Associates, to finish an analysis for $7,500. It later paid the Michigan Municipal League $18,000 for another in 2000. The first estimated possible revenue based on census data, while the later depended on employer data.

‘Super drunk’ law now enforceable locally By John Irwin Staff Reporter

Becky Pifer, CMU Manager of SAP HR Information Systems, dons her Pillsbury Bake-Off apron in her office in Foust Hall. Pifer’s recipe for peanut butter crunch layer bars is one of the top 100 finalists in Pillsbury’s 45th Bake-Off contest. In March, Pifer will go to Orlando to compete for a $1 million prize. The Phi Sigma Sigma adviser said if she wins, she will travel to Germany to visit the foreign exchange student who lived with her family for a year.
the million dollar bar Phi Sigma Sigma adviser is one of 100 Pillsbury Bake-Off finalists
By Jessica Fecteau Senior Reporter Blanchard resident Becky Pifer’s baking has won over the stomachs of many friends and family members, and she might now win $1 million because of it. The SAP HR Information Systems Manager and Phi Sigma Sigma adviser is one of 100 finalists in the 45th annual Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest. She said her recipe for Peanut Butter Crunch Layer Bars is a simple creation she just threw together for submitting. “There are people who submit hundreds of recipes every time this contest comes up,” Pifer said. “I literally submitted two.” All of the ingredients used in Pifer’s recipe had to come from a list of ingredients supplied by Pillsbury. Pifer has so far claimed a microwave, $125 cash prize and a trip to Florida for the finals on March 26. She said all of the finalists will compete using mini kitchen set-ups in a hotel ballroom and will be given four hours to make their creations for the judges. “We make it one time for the judges, one time for the display table for photos and if we want, we can make it a third time to give out samples to people who will be there as well,” Pifer said. The winner of the contest will be announced on the Martha Stewart Show, who is also the host of the bake-
Though the “super drunk” drivers law went into effect in 2010, it’s now fully enforceable after Gov. Rick Snyder signed a bipartisan package of bills last week. The “super drunk” law gives harsher penalties to drivers who have a blood-alcohol level of more than 0.17 percent, just over double the legal limit of 0.08 percent. The driver faces up to 180 days in prison and $200 to $700 in fines if convicted, as opposed to up to 93 days in prison and a fine between $100 and $500 for someone who is not “super drunk.” Since the maximum prison term was increased, law enforcement officers were unable to write tickets for violators of the “super drunk” law. Prior to the new law, municipalities such as Mount Pleasant, could only enforce 93-day misdemeanors under local ordinances. Now, they have the flexibility to prosecute cases under local ordinance instead of state law. “We must all work together to combat drunken driving and keep our roads safe,” Snyder said in a press release. “This legislation gives communities the tools to be effective partners in protecting Michigan families.” Mount Pleasant Public Information Officer Jeff Browne said ordinances conflicting with the new law was the issue
the Mount Pleasant Police Department had with enforcing the law. “The problem we ran into was that we could not enforce it through city law,” Browne said. “We had to go through state law in order to enforce the “super drunk” law, which isn’t harder. It’s just that there’s more paperwork.” Browne said roughly 40 percent of drunken driving cases the police department dealt with last year involved “super drunk” drivers. “(For) regular drunk drivers, through the city attorney’s office, 87 were processed,” Browne said. “Super drunks’ that we tracked through the prosecuting attorney’s office was 60.” Milan sophomore Meagan Sanders said the super drunk law is fair, and she is glad to hear the law is now easier to enforce. “I know a guy who was caught drunk driving at a level of .2, and he had his license restricted for 60 days,” Sanders said. “(He) had to pay a few fines, and that was it, and it wasn’t his first time.” Sanders said she was upset when she learned about his minor punishment, because it’s so dangerous and “all he got was a slap on the wrist.” “I’m glad to see that the punishment is more severe now, because I think this will deter people more from doing it,” she said. firstname.lastname@example.org

“My husband and I both loved these treats at a little deli called scotcharoos,” she said. “I tried to make a cookie of that theme.” Although Pifer comes from a family of baking and cooking, it’s her sorority family that enjoys the treats on a regular basis. “She has so many different recipes, and she tries new things all the time,” said Phi Sigma Sigma soror-

Blanchard senior said. “There’s almost always something on hand in the house to eat.” Kara said her mother bakes to make other people happy. “She just kind of does it so people can feel like they’re having a good day,” she said. Practice makes perfect for Pifer, who is now creating her recipe a couple times a month to get the timing down before the big day. The winner will take home $1 million and $10,000 in GE appliances. Kara expects her mother to win the grand prize. “She’s tried making some of the other finalist’s recipes, and none of them seem winning-worthy,” she said. “Hers just seems easy to make and (is) just wonderful.” email@example.com
Soaring Eagle Water Park and Hotel has 194 positions to fill for its grand opening in mid-April, but the number of applicants on Tuesday far exceeded that. More than 700 people were lined up at 9 a.m. at the job fair held at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort Entertainment room. Booths were set up for potential employees to turn in applications and talk to a representative about each position available. The job fair lasted until 5 p.m., and the final number of applicants will not be determined until next week when applications are sorted, said Soaring Eagle Water Park and Hotel Manager Bonnie Spraque. “It’s awesome to see all the individuals interested in working,” Spraque said. When Spraque presented the business plan to the Tribal Council, they immediately
saw the resort as a source to boost the economy, she said. “It’s definitely a strength,” she said. A previous job fair was held Feb. 15 for tribal members, first-line descendants and Native Americans. Saginaw Chippewa Indian Public Relations Director Frank Cloutier said there were 500 interviews from the job fair, although there were only 300 applicants. Many people were applying for more than one job, he said. The resort will need employees to fit many different areas including housekeeping, facilities, lifeguards, retail clerks, guest services and food and beverage. The biggest area to fill is the food and beverage department with the restaurant wait staff, host/ hostess, utility/dishwasher, line cooks, preparation, cashiers and supervisors. “We are looking at everybody,” Cloutier said.

U.S. colleges: What bad economy? Gifts rise 8.2 percent to $30.3 billion By Michael Muskal Los Angeles Times
(MCT) LOS ANGELES — Donations to U.S. colleges and universities rose 8.2 percent last year as institutions of higher education improved their financial condition after some tough economic years, according to a survey released Wednesday by the Council for Aid to Education. The survey showed that charitable contributions reached $30.3 billion in 2011, the second time the total had crossed the $30-billion mark— but it was still down from the

For Mount Pleasant resident Danielle Wisneski, it was her first job fair she attended on Tuesday. “I’m into the office-type of thing, so I’m hoping there’s something like that,” she said. Wisneski said she called the Water Park in search of a job, and they directed her to the job fair. Beaverton resident Tresa Haus was also attending her first job fair. Haus said she wasn’t intimidated with all the people there.

Because of the unlikelihood of state-shared funds being restored to a previous level, which was 50 percent of the city’s revenue about a decade ago, Grinzinger said officials have been in “constant review” of the city’s level of services, what they cost and how to increase efficiency. Over that same period of time, she said the city has reduced its number of positions by 12 percent and increased some fees, among other adjustments made, to preserve funds.
$31.6 billion record in 2008. Adjusted for inflation, last year’s increase is 4.8 percent over 2010, according to the Voluntary Support of Education survey. The good fundraising news doesn’t automatically mean that parents and students won’t face tuition increases. According to the council, 13.6 percent of the giving went to capital purposes such as endowments and buildings, while 4.7 percent went to operations. Because not all dollars can be used to defray current-year expenses, last year’s giving accounts for 3.8 percent of expenditures, one
of the major drivers in tuition. As is common in such giving, rich universities will continue to get richer while the less well-endowed will have to enjoy college spirit, rather than money. Of the $30.3 billion collected, $8.2 billion was raised by the top 20 institutions, about 2 percent of the 1,009 respondents in the annual survey. Fundraising in the top tier grew by 15.3 percent over the year before. The top quarter of those responding to the survey accounted for 86.3 percent of all giving, while the bottom quarter received just 1 percent.
“So far, so good,” she said. “Everyone has been very helpful, although I’m a little confused with where to go.” With 16 years in the food service industry, Haus said she hopes she is qualified for a position in that area. Weidman resident Amber Carman said the job fair was a perfect opportunity because of the ability to apply for several positions. “I need a job really bad,” she said. “I know the casino is a good place to work, so I figured I would try it out.” Weidman said she was hoping to land a position in the
food and beverage position. “We want as many candidates as we can so we can pick the best of the best,” Cloutier said. Cloutier said a job fair is the best way for the hiring process to be successful. People spend money locally, which will stimulate money in Mount Pleasant, he said. Cloutier said he hopes the Water Park and Hotel will give people an income who don’t currently have one. “The more people that can work, the more we can spur the economy,” he said.
The concern now for many officials, however, is that with the suggested elimination of personal property taxes, they may not be able to balance the 2013 and other future budgets without a “drastic” reduction in services or a substantial increase in “real” property taxes generated.
“(We) have only increased the millage rate once and never dipped into the rainy day fund,” Grinzinger said. “I believe, however, we’ve taken just about as many cuts as we can before we begin changing the face of who we are and what we want Mount Pleasant to grow up to be.” An income tax would collect money from residents, as well as those who work in the city. As it is only one of the multiple mentioned options to increase revenue, Grinzinger said city staff will not know more about which is the preferable choice until an independent study is conducted.

Norma Bailey leads push for anti-discrimination ordinance

tion to the Mount Pleasant City Commission Monday. Bailey said like many gays and lesbians, she hid who she was for many years. She said she didn’t come out until she was 34 years old. “It was a long process,” Bailey said. “After admitting to myself I was a lesbian, I ended my marriage and decided to do my part to help the community.”

A Central Michigan University education professor has shifted her social activism to a political one by fighting for a non-discrimination ordinance. Professor Norma Bailey and others hope the ordinance will pass after the final presenta-
She began speaking to schools and giving fellow teachers tools to better serve the younger community. “When you aren’t out to the community, there’s a sense of being cautious,” Bailey said. “You always have to stop and think, ‘Do we hold hands or to what degree do you wish to be out?’ You aren’t able to do things straight couples do without thinking in terms of how to function publicly.” Bailey said she’s not afraid of losing her job, but she knows of others who are. She said she remembers how internally isolated she felt before coming out. She said she now feels much more free and wants others to feel the same. Charles Farnum has been working closely on the ordinance with Bailey and said if it passes, long-term couples can be seen together without fear of losing a job, he said. Males will be able to hold hands across a table without being asked to leave a restaurant. Two post-college women will be able to rent an apartment together without inquiries into whether they’re “just
sharing or living together,” he said. “People that are against the ordinance for different reasons, including religious ones, can believe anything they wish,” Bailey said. “But they don’t have the right to discriminate against other people.” She said if someone can perform their job or are good renters, why does it matter what their sexuality is? Bailey said religious organizations will not be forced to hire people of the LGBT community. The ordinance simply states people can’t be fired, turned away from a place of business and kicked out of a housing situation because of sexual orientation or gender identity. Farnum said everyone should have the right to work, eat in public and rent a place to stay, regardless of who they fall in love with. That’s not the case right now in Mount Pleasant, but he said he hopes it will soon be. “This is so people know they can’t be turned away,” Bailey said. “No one should have to pretend; they should be able to
Anti-discrimination law to be subject of presentation City Manager Kathie Grinzinger has said it’s all a part of the normal process of enacting all ordinances — that after a municipality’s approval, residents reserve the right to file a referendum to bring the decision to voters. According to Mount Pleasant’s charter, an ordinance goes into effect after 30 days, unless such a referendum is filed. Though this was the case in places such as Kalamazoo, the ordinance from which served as a model for Mount Pleasant’s draft, no party has said if this city will meet the same fate. Jay Kaplan, staff attorney for the ACLU of Michigan’s LGBT Project, said for the most part communities in Michigan have embraced anti-discrimination ordinances. Much of that is embedded in the history of civil rights starting at the local level, he said. “This is no reinventing the wheel. It’s just a matter of treating people with dignity,” he said. “Most people don’t realize in the state of Michigan it’s legal to discriminate against gay people. That’s why it’s so important for communities to have the local human rights ordinances.”

Mount Pleasant may be one step closer to adopting an antidiscrimination law on Monday, but the effort could still face roadblocks outside of City Hall. At Monday’s City Commission meeting, Norma Bailey, a city resident and spokeswoman for the movement, will be helping present the proposed ordinance. She said those involved have been preparing to answer potential questions from officials over the proposed ordinance following a brief address. It’s only one of the several stages expected for the ordinance, which was drafted and proposed last year to protect people of more than a dozen demographics, including sexual orientation and gender identity. If the city were to eventually adopt the law, it would be the nineteenth municipality and the last that’s home to a large public university in the state to do so. “Right now, the goal is to have the city council pass it,” Bailey said. “Speaking from experiences of other cities, what has happened is outside forces, specifically the American Family Association, have raised issues and said, ‘Wait a minute, the people haven’t decided, just a commission did. You need to go to a ballot and prove that the people want it.’” The latest anti-discrimination ordinance adopted in the state, according to published reports, was last year in Traverse City, where city officials green-lighted the law before it was approved by voters. In 2009, Kalamazoo residents voted to adopt such an ordinance, after the city’s approval was received with some local controversy.
Potential opposition Agreeing with Bailey, Kaplan said the opposing agenda could come largely from representatives of American Family Association of Michigan. Contact with the American Family Association of Michigan were not returned as of Tuesday morning. The draft ordinance was first handed to city commissioners in a November meeting and was later referred to the city attorney for analysis. Last week, that analysis, along with research of similar ordinances
in other college towns, was the subject of a commission work session. The draft would ban discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodation, as well as policies or actions that have discriminatory effects. Regulation at the city level would supplement state and federal regulations by specifying the city as the agency responsible for enforcing it. Bailey has attested to the “broadness of support” human rights regulations in Mount Pleasant have received, after tripling the number of businesses pledging support in the past several weeks and seeing hundreds of residents sign an online petition at www. mpwelcome.org. However, much of the opposition could come from Lansing as the ordinance moves forward. A bill was introduced to the state House in October aiming to amend Michigan’s Elliott-Larson Civil Rights Act to prohibit policies from any city village, township, county or school district authority that supersede a law at the state-level. House Bill 5039, as it’s written, would affect local human rights ordinances, though so far it has not left committee. “Clearly, if that piece of legislation came along, it’s unconstitutional,” Kaplan said, citing a 1996 U.S. Supreme Court case that overturned a Colorado constitutional amendment, because it would have prevented local governments from lawfully protecting LGBT citizens. “Should this bill (see approval), we have every intention of fighting it in federal court,” he added. If the matter comes up during the presentation to the City Commission Monday, Bailey said that moving forward to

pass an ordinance is “the right thing to do, regardless if that bill passes.” The presentation is scheduled at the start of Monday’s regular twice-monthly commission meeting, which will begin at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 302 W.

be who they are.” It’s this fear that’s created when someone can’t be out, she said; without this protection it, limits people’s lives. Bailey and her group will have ten minutes to present to the commission to include the LGBTQ community in the antidiscrimination ordinance. “I sat down next to Norma; I did not know her at the time and saw an opportunity to use my past experience with community organizing to help a cause I believed in,” Farnum said. “Norma is a bundle of energy and has a wonderfully positive outlook on people. She works with determination on her goals, while being aware of her limitations and open to different ideas — a rare combination, in my experience. It’s been great.” If the ordinance passes, Bai-
ley said she hopes it’s part of the tremendous advancement of rights for the LGBTQ community she has seen come about over the years. After she retires from her first love of teaching in a couple years, Bailey said will continue to involve herself in social justice. “I grew up in the ‘50s and ‘60s. I didn’t do much, and looking back, I could’ve done more,” she said. “You have to ask yourself what is the difference I myself am making. It’s so invigorating to know I’m doing something proactive about an issue. “I never thought in my lifetime I would see gay people be married,” Bailey said. “The problem is some hate is still there.” email@example.com

Students use Etsy website to Importance of crime prevention sell art, clothing creations stressed in youth services decision CITY COMMISSION
In 2012 city spends $240,000 for programs
By Anna Palm Staff Reporter
Kaitlin Slack was about 10 years old when her aunt started teaching her proper techniques of jewelry making. Now, the Howell sophomore sells jewelry in Native American style on the online marketplace etsy.com. On Etsy, every user may sell handmade goods, supplies and tools to their own items. She said for a few years she stopped making jewelry to focus on other activities, such as tennis. When she started high school, she became involved in art again. She founded her shop OxygentoBreathe on Dec. 23, 2010. “It’s only been over the past few years that I’ve perfected my jewelry-making skills with a focus on polymer clay techniques,” Slack said. Her style is inspired by Native American art, said Slack, who has gone to many Native American art exhibits in the past. While growing up, her parents would take her to Indian Hills Gallery in Petoskey, Michigan. She uses metal, yarn, feathers and textiles in her art. Slack said she believes Etsy is a lot cheaper for businesses that are just starting out and don’t have the time, energy and money to create items on a regular basis. “I started selling my jewelry online, because it seemed like the biggest available market for me as a high school student with little resources,” Slack said. Over winter break, she made mittens out of recycled sweaters and made more than $400. Slack is not the only Central Michigan University student selling creations on the online website. Brynn Good, a Plymouth senior, opened a shop called Bib&Tucker on Etsy a few weeks ago. “My shop sells vintage clothing in the categories of outerwear, dresses, blazers, denim, blouses and jewelry,” Good said in an email. “I hope to soon expand to handbags and shoes.” She said her work started as

a hobby in high school, buying and modifying vintage clothing by altering them in some way, such as shortening a hem or adding embellishment. “My shop began as the love child of my obsession with period pieces and all things vintage and my entrepreneurial spirit,” Good said. She said she likes using polyester, wool, leather and silk — also in vintage format — which she finds through scavenging garage sales and small fabric stores. The oldest piece she ever found was a dress from the ‘40s. Good said she loves the fact that the items she sells can live past their owners’ use and be given life again instead of being thrown away. “I modify it (the clothing item) so that it can be used toward the next generation,” she said. Her dream is to become a business owner one day, and Etsy has enabled her to do so on a college-student budget, she said. While some other online marketplaces require members to pay a monthly fee, Etsy users only have to pay for each item they put up for sale. Good said it takes a lot of capital to start a regular business. She said she tries to price
items reasonably enough for college students to afford. A long wool coat will be more expensive than a polyester top, but if she finds a great deal on an item, she said she will transfer that savings to her customers. CMU alumna Jesi Parker has made her Etsy shop JustFollowYourArt into a success by painting canvases with inspiring messages and quotes. “I started painting as a way to de-stress from my classes and many student organizations that I was involved with (during my sophomore year),” Parker said. “My passion for painting grew when I noticed the happiness that my work brought to others.” Selling canvases has helped Parker raise money for LiveStrong and avoid taking out student loans while in graduate school at Grand Valley State University. So far, she has raised about $300 for the organization. After graduation, Good said she plans to buy an actual store in an urban area, someplace where she expects to find customers. “I’m passionate about what I do,” Good said. “If I could be doing this for the rest of my life, I would be the happiest person in the world.” firstname.lastname@example.org
Heart Cry International starting Widow’s Hope in Uganda By Hailee Sattavara Senior Reporter
Designs from mid-Michigan will travel across the globe in April. The Widow’s Hope project, through nonprofit Heart Cry International, will host a fashion show supporting the group’s efforts to help impoverished women from Uganda sew clothes for profit. “Widow’s Hope was started to keep children with their mothers,” said Heart Cry International Founder Carla Ives. Those who qualify as a widow have lost their husband through death or abandonment, Ives said. “Right now they only make handcrafted jewelry, so right now Heart Cry International is working with a ministry to
provide sewing machines to the women,” said Sam Hegeman, Heart Cry International intern and South Rockwood senior. At present, the women have an eBay business established by Heart Cry International so they can take steps to become independent and self-sufficient. “These women have no way to earn a living,” Ives said. Pattern submissions for the fashion show are open to anyone in the form of a paper pattern and sketch along with a $2 donation to the cause. Entries should be sent to the Heart Cry International office, 221 Bellows St. The deadline is March 2, and on March 12, voting on each submission will begin. The winning patterns will
be sent and sewn in Uganda after appearing in the Widow’s Hope fashion show. Heart Cry International is also working on another project in Uganda and one in Nigeria, Ives said. Submissions should fit one of four categories: shirt, skirt, shorts or dress. Those who wish to get involved with the nonprofit can meet up at World Changes at 9 p.m. the first and third Monday of each month. “I like to have people streamline with one project,” Ives said. Ives said Heart Cry International is always looking for volunteers. Internships overseas are available. “I would love to have as many students as possible,” Ives said. email@example.com

A community public safety program aimed at dissuading crime among local youth will push forward two more years, despite what had been an approaching March depletion date for current funding. The city’s 2012 operating budget accounted for an assumed $240,000 in outside funding for the Youth Services Unit, a cohort of the Mount Pleasant Police Department’s Community Services/Crime Prevention Unit. City Manager Kathie Grinzinger said now two of the unit’s four designated officers are funded with grant money that is due to run out next month. But last week’s 5-1 approval of a budget amendment, allotting $400,000 to cover the shortfall, has left city commissioners hoping other agencies will step up financially down the road. Commissioner Nancy English recalled to her colleagues looking into what parts of the program could be cut, sustained or re-prioritized but said she ultimately supported its value. “I think a clear warning is going out throughout the community, and I think the scare that this very likely could be cut,” she said. “We need to work as a community.” Commissioner Jim Holton stressed the need to look forward and search for financial partners for the program. “The city should not be the sole survivor in this deal providing the funds
for it,” he said. Much of the YSU funding in the past has come from 2-percent allocations from the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, which has recently declined more than city officials expected. City staff’s recommendation to amend the ongoing budget in response, Grinzinger said, also included the goal to make the issue a part of a more wide-ranging conversation in the future about what services and programs are important and affordable. The only commissioner not to support the budget amendment last week was Jon Joslin, who said he was uncomfortable with how the decision’s balance could eventually impact other city services.
“We’ve been trying to get people to understand that this program’s at risk, but nobody stepped up. It just always seems like it always falls back on the city,” he said. “Public safety is obviously very important to our community, but ... unfortunately, there (are) other things in the community that we need.” Grinzinger quoted Mount Pleasant Police Capt. Thomas Forsberg when she told commissioners of a final reason city staff made the recommendation to approve the budget amendment: “We have 23 officers dedicated to reacting to crime. It seems reasonable to devote at least four to preventing it.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Last season’s MVP Hall out with injury
Star player hooping at the SAC mid-season I’m not a basketball player, never have been. But, like many other students at Central Michigan University, I like to go to the SAC and participate in the endless games of pick-up basketball that seem to occur around the clock, seven days a week. I’ve seen no evidence they ever stop. Most of the time I meet my friends there, other times I’ll just join a team that needed one guy, but when I went to shoot a few hoops on Monday night, I played on a team with someone I never expected. So let’s play a game of guess who, shall we? I’ll give you some hints. First, it’s a girl, so that will eliminate the majority of the people playing basketball at the SAC. Second, she was about 6-feet tall, so that eliminates the majority of girls on campus. You got it yet? I understand if you don’t, so I’ll give you one more hint. This 6-footer is a Division I basketball player. If you guessed Crystal Bradford, you win. That’s right; my teammate at the SAC was none other than the sensational, but tumultuous, freshman guard for the CMU women’s basketball team. Bradford is the team’s leading-
Brandon Champion Staff Reporter scorer, averaging 14.1 points per game. That mark makes her the fifth-leading scorer in the MidAmerican Conference. Playing with her was fun, dressed in her CMU practice jersey. She was by far the most vocal person playing on the court and at the SAC; you know that’s saying something. It was none other than “CB23” who was organizing the chaos that ensues after a game is completed and people flood the court trying to figure out who is “next.” Once the game started, Bradford was the vocal leader of every team she played on. Whether it was pumping up the team, encouraging strong defense or yelling out the score, she was in control. Impressive, considering she was the only female on or around the court. We lost the game 12-10, Bradford probably had six of those points, and as the women’s basketball beat reporter,
it was cool to get to play with someone I have been watching all season. I just wish she would have passed me the ball more often. That being said, it wasn’t until after the game that I realized something and the journalist in me kicked in. I thought to myself, why is the leading-scorer of a Division I basketball team, which happens to be in the stretch run of its season, playing basketball at the SAC with a bunch of dudes? It’s especially concerning because “Air Inkster” has been suspended for a total of four games this season, including the team’s 84-76 loss at Ball State on Sunday. She didn’t even travel with the team due to violation of team rules. So why is she playing at the SAC? Is it because she’s not playing in games? Is it because she’s trying to make a point? Or is she just exercising her right to use the facilities offered to all CMU students? I don’t know the answer to that question, and I don’t know what she did to earn the suspension, but I do know what I think. Risking injury at the SAC in the middle of her season isn’t going to help her situation. I understand she probably wants to play, and right now

she isn’t being allowed to do that for the Chippewas. It’s really unfortunate, because the team really needs her. Bradford has a skill set that no other player on the team does; I found out first hand on Monday. “CB23” has a chance to take the Mid-American Conference by storm, and judging by how vocal she was while playing pick-up games at the SAC, she obviously has it in her to be a leader. She’s the best player on a team with tons of potential, but if CMU is going to go anywhere in March, it’s going to be Bradford that will lead them. Your best player has to be your leader, and risking injury playing pick-up games is not being a leader. I’m not at the SAC all the time, but I’ve never heard of or seen a Division 1 player there playing pick-up ball in the middle of their season. I don’t know when her suspension will be over, or if she will play in tonight’s game against Northern Illinois. But I do know she needs to be playing in front of hundreds of people at McGuirk Arena, not a handful of dudes at the SAC. As a fan, it was awesome to play on a team with her. As a sports journalist, I see why it could be troublesome.
