No progress made on proposed hotel By Catey Traylor Senior Reporter

Progress on the proposed hotel to be built near Kelly/ Shorts Stadium has come to a halt. The proposed national franchise hotel was originally expected to be completed in time for the September football game against Michigan State University. In July, the project was delayed because of expenses. Barrie Wilkes, university controller and associate vice president of financial services and reporting, told Central Michigan Life the proposed property tax rate on the project was too high. Derek van der Merwe, deputy director of athletics, said there isn’t a proposed cost for the project at this time. “That’s the part of the process that we’re still in. There is no estimate at this time. We’re trying to manage costs, and we’re doing that by assessing what our needs are,” he said. “We’re trying to build and design something that will fulfill both campus and community needs. Until we can assess those needs, we can’t determine a cost.” Van der Merwe said the

Student starts Juggling and Circus Arts Club A group of students can be regularly found twirling, spinning and catching props to techno music — but they aren’t circus performers. Brighton junior Matthew Peplinski and members of his newly created registered student organization, the Juggling and Circus Arts Club, were just a group of friends looking to improve their skills. Peplinski said the purpose of the RSO is for people to get together and practice juggling and different forms of circus arts. He said he also wanted members to have a permanent location for practices as opposed to trying to find an open spot to practice at the Student Activity Center. “I wanted to make a community of people who were interested in the same thing. Creating the RSO gives them a place to go where they can do what they love,” Peplinski said. “It’s one thing to try to learn on your own, but it’s 10 times easier to learn when someone is teaching and helping you through the process.”

Brighton junior Matthew Peplinski stands balancing juggling clubs Feb. 24 in the Events Center’s multipurpose room. Peplinski has been juggling for three years and is a member of the Juggling and Circus Arts Club.

The club meets twice a week: at 7 p.m. Tuesdays, they meet in the main gym of Finch Fieldhouse and at 7 p.m. Fridays in the multipurpose room in the Events Center. Practices usually end around 9 or 9:15 p.m., but Peplinski said if members have things to do or take care of, they are free to leave whenever they need to. Peplinski bought and cre-

The number of departments on campus endorsing the December vote of no confidence against University President George Ross and Provost Gary Shapiro continues to rise. Despite current Board of Trustees Chairman Sam Kottamasu’s statement expressing confidence in Ross and Shapiro at a Feb. 16 meeting, a total of 17 units on campus have endorsed the vote. The Human Environmental Studies department supported the vote and included a motion “calling upon the Board of Trustees to take action to address the concerns expressed and begin to rebuild the cooperative and collaborative academic environment that will enable CMU to move forward,” department chairperson Megan Goodwin wrote in an email. Goodwin did not provide specifics on the number of faculty members to endorse the motion. Additionally, Psychology Department Chairman

more people began to take notice once posters were created and placed around campus. Grand Rapids senior Spencer Grubbs joined the club after Peplinski taught him to juggle. He said he knew Peplinski, because they were both members of the Pipe Smokers Club. A CLUB | 2A

Students welcome the Quidditch Team as new RSO By Paulina Lee Staff Reporter

Quidditch is more than just a fun time riding brooms. There are more than 500 registered teams in the United States alone; there’s an official rule book, and it just so happens to be the only tackle co-ed sport currently being played at an intercollegiate level. For those unfamiliar with J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series, quidditch can be somewhat hard to describe. Dylan Clauson is the Operations Coordinator for The Quidditch Team at Central Michigan University. The Mason senior de-

scribed the sport as “similar to soccer in terms of the field movement and goals, but also like football because there’s tackling. With a little bit of basketball, because when you get down toward the hoops, you set-up and make plays like basketball.” The first ever real-life “muggle” quidditch game was at Middlebury College on Oct. 9, 2005. Since then, the sport has taken off with the creation of the International Quidditch Association and an annual world cup tournament, where top collegiate teams like Harvard, Princeton and Michigan State University compete for the coveted title, evidently thrilling Harry Potter fans in

ated many of the props on his own, and members are free to use whatever tools are available. Some of the skills they practice are juggling with various objects and spinning objects by practicing poi, a technique that originated with the Maori people of New Zealand. Peplinski and many of the other members taught themselves the various skills

project, to be built by Lodgco Hospitality LLC and include about 150 rooms and indoor and outdoor pools, is still in the conceptual stages of both design and budget. “We’re exploring all options. We’re open to anything, but we’re trying to see what financial revenues there are. Facilities to university events have assessed how the hotel would operate and what we’d need to do to get this up and running,” he said. “At this point, I would call all of our planning conceptual. There is absolutely nothing set in stone.” Keith Voeks, assistant director of University Events, said he was invited to a meeting in April regarding the proposed hotel and discussed how concessions would work with the new layout. “I was at one meeting with the athletic staff and the design firm, and they were asking questions about how we would need the space to be set up for a bar and concession service. Nothing has come from it since,” Voeks said. “I got no indication of a timeline when I was there. Nothing was clearly laid out.”

the process. But players want to do more than bring Rowling’s fantasy sport to life. Some are even advocating for quidditch to be recognized by the National College Athletic Association. All players on the oval pitch must carry a broom between their legs, thus leaving players with only one hand free. Players, called “chasers,” try to shoot the quaffle (a slightly deflated volleyball) through one of three hoops positioned at the opposite end of the field. The hoops are defended by a keeper and a line of defense, Beaters, who throw “bludgers”

Hajime Otani said the endorsement of the vote of no confidence was supported unanimously by 27 faculty members during a Feb. 10 meeting. Chemistry faculty member Phil Squattrito wrote in an email that his department voted to support the no confidence resolution during a Feb. 6 department meeting. Seven faculty members voted in support of the no confidence vote, six were not in support and two abstained, he said. Jim McDonald, chairperson of the Academic Senate, said the communication and dramatic arts, counseling and special education, recreation/park and leisure and English departments have all followed suit within the last month. Heads of each department could not be reached. When the university librarians met on Feb. 24, unanimous approval was also given to endorse the vote of no confidence by all 11 members in attendance.

Additionally, five concerns were prepared to be presented to the Board of Trustees. Those concerns were outlined in an email from Stephanie Mathson, assistant professor and reference librarian. Concerns included “failure to include the CMU campus community in planning and decision-making in a truly meaningful and collaborative manner; failure to regularly provide current, accurate and vital information to the campus community; failure to properly respect and support the faculty and students of the university; and failure to acknowledge the

“I’m taking 12 credits right now, so I wanted to join a few clubs,” Grubbs said. “When you’re practicing, you’re kind of in your own world, so it’s good for relaxing. I’m just finally feeling free.” Peplinski said once the weather gets a bit warmer, he and other members will perform tricks on campus for promotion purposes. He said he will teach anyone who wants to learn how to juggle. “It makes you feel very achieved, because when you learn more tricks, you feel better about it. With juggling and other kinds of circus arts, you can always get better at it,” Peplinski said. “I’ve been juggling for about a year and a half, and I’m still finding a million other new things I can learn.”

U.S. soldier kills 16 Afghan civilians in unprovoked attack By Jon Stephenson and Ali Safi McClatchy Newspapers

KABUL, Afghanistan — A U.S. soldier killed 16 Afghan civilians on Sunday, including three women and nine children, in an unprovoked attack in southern Kandahar province, Afghan officials said. Five other people were wounded in the shooting at Belandi-Pul village of the Panjway district when the soldier entered homes and opened fire, according to a statement from President Hamid Karzai’s office. “This intentional killing and terror is an unforgivable act,” Karzai said. The attack threatens to further worsen relations between the U.S.-led coalition and Afghans, already badly strained by the recent burning of Korans and other religious material by U.S. military personnel. That incident, at the U.S.-run Bagram airbase, north of Kabul, sparked a series of demonstrations and attacks on bases belonging to the U.S. coalition in which at least 30 Afghans were killed. President Barack Obama

and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called Karzai to offer their condolences and assure him that those responsible will be held accountable. “I am deeply saddened by the reported killing and wounding of Afghan civilians,” Obama said in a written statement. “I offer my condolences. ... This incident is tragic and shocking and does not represent the exceptional character of our military and the respect that the United States has for the people of Afghanistan. I fully support Secretary Panetta’s and General Allen’s commitment to get the facts as quickly as possible and to hold accountable anyone responsible.” Initial accounts Sunday said the U.S. soldier left his base at 3 a.m. and walked to nearby homes where he opened fire. There were widely varying claims about the number of dead and wounded. “Seven are believed to have been killed and eight wounded,” said Javed Faisal, a spokesman for the Kandahar governor earlier today. “The number of dead could rise.”

(slightly deflated kickballs) in hopes of causing the player to stop in their tracks or stun them, before tackling them to the ground. There is also the famous “golden snitch,” which must be caught by the seeker. The role of the snitch is placed upon a yellow-clad player who runs around with a tennis ball in a sock hanging out behind him. The fantasy, now reality, sport has been featured in various news publications like Time magazine and CBS News, who actually had their weatherman attempt to play quidditch. Students interested in joining the Quidditch team can attend practices at 8 p.m. Wednesdays in Finch Fieldhouse and Fridays at 3 p.m. at either the field by the Health Professions Building or Finch Fieldhouse, depending on the weather. Club Quidditch at CMU became a registered student organization at Central Michigan University several

weeks ago. The club team, led by President David Wilber, currently has 12 members. “We started out just messing around for fun and had heard about other schools doing it,” the Battle Creek junior said. “Now we’re actually practicing and have two tournaments coming up in March.” Practice for quidditch could be mistaken for any other sport, at least in the beginning. It starts off with warm-up laps and stretching, before going into passing, shooting and seeking drills. The drills are created by team members who took inspiration from football and ice hockey practices. Cadillac graduate student Christin Gostola said she has a lot of fun playing. “I love the book, and it’s so cool to have it come to life and have other people who enjoy Harry Potter too,” she said. “And now it’s not just something in the books; we don’t just talk about the books, we get to live it.” Gostla also got her boyfriend, Kori Marvin, also a Cadillac senior, to join the RSO. Both are Harry Potter fans

and have visited many famous sites from the series in England. Marvin is a chaser for the team. “I like it, because it’s a good way to exercise,” Marvin said. Many of the Quidditch team members are also members of the Harry Potter Alliance, a RSO that promotes the book series and relates it to real life. “It really started as a subgroup of HPA, like another activity for members,” Clauson said. Though Harry Potter fans and Quidditch players alike are often scoffed for being nerds, Clauson disagreed. “Jock-ish people at first think it’s really nerdy, but then you actually play and realize you have to be athletic,” he said. “Quidditich is a full contact, co-ed sport without padding, so there’s tackling, and the most protective gear people ever wear is like protective eye gear or mouth guards.” The team travels to its first tournament on March 31 at Michigan State University, which currently has four quidditch teams.

KOREA EXCHANGE Economics student Marcela Micheloni first in university exchange program

By Paulia Lee | Staff Reporter

Marcela Micheloni spent more than 100 days without a cell phone, 6,000-plus miles away from home, living with strangers whose native tongue was not English. The Sterling Heights junior spent her fall 2011 semester attending Korea University in Jochiwon, South Korea. She was the first ever Central Michigan University student to participate in the program. “I wanted to experience something completely different,” Micheloni said. “Because I’m from Brazil and I’ve lived in Latin America, I thought, ‘If I want something completely different, why not Korea?’” Life in Korea Micheloni was one of 17 American students at the university. Though she was in a foreign country and at a new school, Micheloni said she and the other students were warmly welcomed. “It was almost like we were famous there, because the students there really want to learn English and they really embrace western culture,” Micheloni said. “So they wanted to hang out with us and take us out to dinner.” Every English-speaking exchange student in the program is

placed with Korean roommates. Micheloni spent about four hours a week speaking English with the two Korean students she shared a room with. “They were very fluent when I got there, but it’s really just about being exposed to native speakers. They were very nervous and shy at first,” she said. She said one aspect that is different about Korean students is their level of involvement outside of academics. “Everyone there is very involved. They’re all doing something outside of school and a lot of them don’t have jobs; they’re

funded by their parents. So a lot of them mostly go to class and then their extracurricular,” Micheloni said. “They have all kinds of clubs like we do.” Like some American students, Micheloni said Korean students are very much into getting a career because of parental pressure to succeed. But she said they’re just like any other American college student in one aspect — they like to have a good time. “Once they get to college, they like to party — a lot,” Micheloni said. “They drink Soju and Makkoli; Korean rice wine and Korean rice vodka.” Micheloni said she is thankful for the opportunity she had to study abroad in Korea at such an affordable price. “If you’re looking for a contrast of ancient culture and high-tech, go to Seoul. It’s clean it’s big. Nothing like I expected, but it was just fantastic,” she said. A surprise CMU visit Micheloni was visited unexpectedly by a Central Michigan Univerisity professor, Yae Sock Roh, a professor of marketing and hospitality services administration and native of Korea. “He went to Korea to see how I was doing. He visited me while I was there. It was very nice,” Micheloni said. “It just shows how

Central takes care of people that go abroad. They kept in contact with me by email and checked up on me.” Roh, who acts as a liaison between CMU and Korea University, wanted to make sure Micheloni was getting the experience she wanted. “She was the very first student to go there, so I was a little bit nervous,” Roh said. “So that’s why I visited; to make sure she’s safe and secure (and) that all the resources are there, and she is treated right.” Roh credits Provost Gary Shapiro for helping facilitate opportunities like Micheloni’s semester abroad. “Gary Shapiro, the provost, did a tremendous job promoting the international relations, because he realizes that there are a lot things we can learn from others; family values, work ethic, like how they work more efficiently,” Roh said. He said he is a firm believer in the value of students studying abroad. “We have to know how to live together, and to do that, we have to understand others,” Roh said. “No matter what company or what industry, you’ll have diverse clientele and you have to understand them.” AKOREA | 5a

Central Michigan University’s College of Education and Human Services has reached its private funding goal thanks to a new donation. Last month, the college was awarded an $800,000 grant from the Kresge Foundation after applying in the winter of 2008. Soon after, the university launched a fundraising challenge, which ended in September, in anticipation of receiving the grant. Interim Dean Kathryn Koch said the grant means that the college has achieved its $7.5 million private funding goal for the $50 million building that opened in the summer of 2009. Koch said the award is an attainment that will not only improve EHS now but through the future. “This is an outstanding accomplishment for CMU and the College of Education and Human Services,” she said. “We are assured that students now and well into the future will enjoy a technologically advanced, inviting and environmentally unique facility.” For more than eight decades, the private, national foundation has worked to achieve its mission of promoting human progress through missions such as increasing college achievement.

According to its website, the Kresge Foundation works to “create opportunity, have community impact, foster institutional transformation and promote environmental conversation.” Koch said because of the values of the foundation, the EHS building’s certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design was of great importance. Of the $50 million project, the state of Michigan funded 75 percent of it, with CMU paying $12.5 million. The university set a minimum fundraising goal of $7.5 million. “This prestigious award demonstrates the strong commitment that our stakeholders have for our college programs,” Koch said, referring to students, faculty, alumni and friends. This is the second time the department has received a grant from the Kresge Foundation. The last grant, $600,000 for the Health Professions Building, was received in 2003. “The nature of the challenge grant from Kresge gives the opportunity to expand CMU’s donor base and to connect with its stakeholders,” she said. “In turn, this helps strengthen our private base of support for annual operating and program needs in the future.”

Art Walk Central adds prize money to event By Anna Palm Staff Reporter

A new element will be added to the annual Art Walk Central event this year. Art Reach Executive Director Kathy Hill said Art Walk has been held for 14 years, but this is the first time prize money is involved. She said they got the idea after visiting Grand Rapids’ Art Prize and saw how it affected the community. “I hope it (Art Walk) will do several things for Mount Pleasant,” Hill said. “I think it will show what we can do as a community and raise an awareness for art and culture but also an appreciation for it.” The total amount of prize money is $22,000. There is a youth category for ages 12 to 17 years old and an adult category for those 18 yearsold and older. There will be four winners, two from each category, as the judges and the public vote on them separately. Adults will win $10,000, while youths will win $1,000. University Art Gallery Director Anne Gochenour said she thinks adding prize money is a wonderful thing. “It’s similar to Art Prize in Grand Rapids, (and) that has brought tons of people downtown and gotten them excited about art,” Gochenour said.

The competition is planned for August. Anyone can participate and have their work displayed in Nelson Park, University Art Gallery, downtown and other locations in Mount Pleasant. Hill said the organization is partnering with the city to get businesses to volunteer as venues. Business owners can register online until March 30. She said she thinks the art competition will help businesses put their name out there and make people come back later. Tyler Kirkpatrick, Frankenmuth senior and program manager of the American Marketing Association, said Art Reach sought out AMA to spread information about the showcase. “Our overall goal is to create a marketing plan for Art Reach,” Kirkpatrick said. He said they are working on designs for a billboard and three different flyers. One flyer is directed toward CMU students, because they want to create an interest level among young people, he said. “It’s not much for CMU students downtown,” Kirkpatrick said. “I think it’s going to pull more kids down there and give them a sense of pride factor.”

Spread the Word to End the Word campaign launches its fourth year By Jessica Fecteau Senior Reporter

Across the world, people are using their voices to advocate for people with intellectual disabilities during the fourth annual Spread the Word to End the Word campaign. The campaign’s founders, Soeren Palumbo, who was a student at Notre Dame, and Tim Shriver, attending Yale, teamed up in the summer of 2008 to launch the movement while interning at the Special Olympics office in Washington D.C.. Their goal was to encourage people to stop using the words “retard” and “retarded.” “We wanted to tap into the power to affect change that college students have,” Palumbo said.

The campaign has since gained the support of 40 colleges and universities as well as dozens of high schools and elementary schools, Palumbo said. It has now spread to every continent besides Antarctica. “Intellectual disability is something that doesn’t know a race, doesn’t know a color and comes in every single community,” he said. Palumbo said his younger sister, who has intellectual disabilities, inspired him to start the campaign with Shriver. “One of my responsibilities as a big brother is to make the world a better place for her to live in,” Palumbo said. “When I grew up, I realized the social stigma associated with people with intellectual disabilities is in-

credibly complicated, but in a lot of cases, it’s still crystallized into the words ‘retard’ and ‘retarded’, which serve as a short hand in a lot of ways to communicate that discrimination and that stereotype of people with intellectual disabilities as clumsy, as hopeless and as worthless.” Although the national day of awareness was March 7, the CMU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee joined with Special Olympics to raise awareness in the Mount Pleasant community during the prior week’s basketball games. Several Special Olympics athletes donned blue campaign shirts and were honored on the McGuirk Arena court holding the banner signed by people who pledged.

Clare resident and mother of a Special Olympics athlete, Enette Wilson, said she appreciates what CMU is doing for the campaign. “It’s a nice thing to have these kids come out,” she said. “You guys do a good job when the Special Olympics come and I don’t have any fear that my kid is there for the entire week.” Enette’s son Billy, who was attending his first CMU basketball game, said his favorite Olympics game was snowshoeing in Traverse City. A Spread the Word to End the Word banner is hung up in the team locker rooms for all CMU athletes to sign, said junior field hockey player Erin Dye. A Campaign| 5a

EDITORIAL | Richeson, McGoff best leaders for SGA next year

Stepping forward

tive organization is the Academic Senate, where senators asked tough, pointed questions of the administration throughout the year and have seen results. Richeson, a former student senator in the A-Senate, could use its efforts this year as a model of effective oversight. SGA can be as important as it wants to make itself, and it seems that Richeson and McGoff have the tenacity and ideas to see through any changes and face future problems head on. Regardless of what happens in the presidential race, one thing is clear — the SGA president and vice president cannot be a public relations organ for the university, despite how closely they might work with administrators. That does not mean the pair needs to be constantly critical, but asking the tough questions when issues


t’s important to recognize new ideas and progress as voting begins for Student Government Association positions.

Killian Richeson and Shane McGoff are the presidential ticket best equipped to keep SGA stable while increasing its relevance and role on campus. General elections will be held today through Friday (you can vote on, though you’ll need to register on OrgSync), and it’s important for the next leaders to be a team which acknowledges Central Michigan University is not perfect. The duo seems prepared to imple-

ment their ideas, including making SGA more sustainable and allowing it to play a bigger part in the lives of students both on-campus and off. Furthermore, more than any other candidates, they acknowledged these are troubled times at CMU. Just because the Board of Trustees has largely ignored the university’s lack of transparency and other problematic issues does not mean other bodies should. A good example of a more proac-

make themselves apparent is not an unreasonable expectation. Students need leaders willing to question why trustees would choose to spend $1.5 million on a Real Food on Campus Mongolian grill station or $10 million on a “privately funded” CMU Events Center — all while it’s very likely the same trustees will raise tuition rates in July citing increased costs. SGA has an opportunity to become relevant right now just by serving as a loud, clear voice of student frustration with the current state of CMU. If elected, Richeson, or any other candidate, should not be afraid to sacrifice SGA’s current cozy relationship with administration to do their best for their constituents. This student body deserves leaders willing to stand up for all students past, present and future.

Clarifying Kony Invisible Children’s newest documentary, Kony 2012, was viewed more than 70 million times in just five days. For those who haven’t seen it, the video can be viewed at With this sudden fame came a flood of criticisms of the organization, namely the clarity (or lack thereof) of the movie and the financials of the nonprofit. I would like to clear up some of the confusion surrounding the campaign. First of all, the LRA is no longer in Uganda. While it is mentioned in the movie, many believe the rebels’ movement into DR Congo, South Sudan and Central African Republic is not obvious enough. It may have been a quick point made in the movie, but it is important to remember the movie’s intention: to bring awareness of Joseph Kony to American youth. To keep the attention of young people, simplicity is essential. If the documentary were simply a narration of facts of the complicated history of the war, it would not have been nearly as viral. People would get bored and stop watching. Invisible Children has made 10 other documentaries with a more thorough explanation of the war. None of them went viral. Many people do not realize the mission of Invisible Children. It is not an aid organization; it is an awareness organization. The nonprofit started as a documentary to bring awareness to a war in Central East Africa. After an outcry from the American public who wanted to donate, the organization began rebuilding schools, setting up a radio network and employing Ugandans. The aid provided is not the main goal, so only one-third of donations are used toward these projects. If you are not comfortable funding movies that bring awareness to child soldiers in Africa, by all means donate to other organizations like UNICEF who provide more aid to the affected community. Invisible Children encourages such donations. For an organization whose main goal is to bring awareness to Kony, I would say they have been successful. The salaries of some of the senior staff members have also been widely publicized and critiqued. Most make between $80,000 and $90,000 a year. While this may seem like a lot, it is important to remember they live in San Diego. An $80,000 salary in San Diego only goes as far as a $54,000 salary in Grand Rapids. For a family of four, the money does not go very far. One of the main points to remember about Kony 2012 is that you do not have to support Invisible Children to want to bring Joseph Kony to justice. This is not about three guys from San Diego who decided to tell a story. This is about children being forced to kill their parents and fight in a war older than they are. To anyone who criticizes the movement to stop Joseph Kony, I wish you luck in telling these children you actively helped turn people away from ending the war that is ruining their lives.

[comments] Comments in response to “Michigan Senate passes legislation against graduate student unions” Michmediaperson Randy, good job down there in Lansing. We don’t need any more unions in this state. The unions have destroyed Michigan over the years. Outstanding university employees don’t need a union. If they’re unhappy, move to another state. There’s plenty of good talent out there who don’t need a union. More unions means more union dues money going for advertising for Liberal Democrat’s political campaigns. Good to see Republicans getting the job done in Lansing. Nagiom Gotta love the republicans idea of “small” government. Nagiom Yeah, more government legislation is exactly what we need. Hypocrite. Guest Passing laws (or in this case amending a law) does not increase the “size” of government. Creating government agencies to perform tasks increases the size of the government and in particular the spending by government. This bill doesn’t do any of that. Whether you think reducing government spending and activity is a good thing or not, it would behoove you to at least understand the arguments being made. Otherwise, you are just an embarrassment to your side when you make comments like the ones above. Nagiom So you support increased intrusion into people’s lives as long as it doesn’t cost more money?

Who is paying to send these folks? CMU? The Michigan taxpayers? Sounds like a political organization, and if so, CMU and the taxpayers, I would think, shouldn’t be paying for it. Huge impact? Are you kidding? It has no impact. You think these countries are going to listen to six universities? Nope! I checked out their website. This is such a minor organization. They can’t even attract the more left-winged universities like Harvard, Cal-Berkeley. Our state department for years haven’t stopped child soldiering and human rights violations. We can’t even stop the human rights violations of Afghans killing our American soldiers. We have Americans right now having their human rights being violated in Egypt, including the son of one of Barack Hussein Obama’s cabinet secretary and Obama and Hillary Clinton can’t do anything about it. Why is CMU, a state-funded university, worrying about this in parts of unknown countries when the Detroit Free-Press and Detroit News ran front-page stories two days ago about the epidemic of children in Detroit being shot and killed by street gangs and the likes? Instead of a nice trip to Europe, CMU folks should be working to solve the problems of our state, since we are a statesupported university. Michigan comes first! Let’s face it, a spring break trip to Detroit isn’t as attractive as going to Europe. Will With all due respect Michmedia, you provide a very weak commentary on this one and fail to understand the fundamental points of this article. I am a graduate of CMU in 2008, who studied Political Science, and who has presented my own research at international conferences. Of course, with that I carry a perspective that speaking publicly or travelling internationally does not in fact equate to resounding global change.

where the problems are endless and where more work, more resources and more time are always needed - I believe that this article highlighted that perspective. Amidst these challenges, I believe CMU has a strong commitment to doing this necessary work both locally and internationally. However, to denigrate those who pursue their own interests and who want to speak to an issue on their own time demonstrates little more than a desire to be critical for the sake of being critical. Which, let’s be honest, is something the conflicted world you described could do with a little less of. CMU has a fine selection of programs to get involved with, Michmedia, that have created some pretty upstanding individuals. So, do some research, and you’ll find network of people who (among other things) are working to make Detroit better, who are working for the government of the United States and who have devoted their time to working internationally. And knowing some of these people, they are always looking for more volunteers.

John Priest Staff Columnist

Romney stronger than critics think When it became clear John McCain would be the Republican Party’s nominee for president in 2008, Mitt Romney gracefully bowed out of the primary. In his February 2007 concession speech to CPAC, Romney said, “If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win.” This year, Mitt Romney’s mathematical advantage is now insurmountable. Despite what you may have heard, the GOP primary is essentially over. Other, less-refined candidates would do well to follow Romney’s example from 2008. They won’t, of course. Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich will likely force an already brutal GOP primary to its unnecessarily protracted end. But when the mudslinging finally settles, the party will coalesce around the Romney candidacy, however reluctantly. As a candidate in 2012, Romney has a lot of weaknesses. In a Republican party driven increasingly to the far right, his moderate record as Massachusetts governor makes him a pariah to many conservatives. Being among history’s wealthiest candidates, Romney struggles with alienating middle class voters in today’s economic climate. To make matters worse, he is widely seen as unable to connect with younger voters. Despite these flaws, a Romney candidacy is considerably stronger than it seems. Much more than Gingrich and Santorum, Romney’s moderate record will appeal to crucial independent voters in a general election. These voters aren’t looking for conservative zeal; they’re looking for someone smart and pragmatic. With strong independent support, Romney’s inability to “feel your pain” economically will be largely overshadowed by pervasive Republican disgust for the president. After all, the GOP’s singular aim since 2008 has been to destroy Barack Obama. The incomplete nature of Romney’s candidacy and his many weaknesses must be countered by a smart vice presidential pick. There are plenty of popular conservative choices; Romney needs to make the right strategic decision. Most popular on the shortlist are Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Christie won’t accept the nod. His presidential outlook in 2016 is too good. Despite his wild popularity among conservatives, McDonnell’s highly controversial “transvaginal ultrasound” bill would damage Romney’s support from independent women voters. The obvious choice among these top contenders is Rubio. A Tea Party favorite, he could help Romney shore up support with skeptical conservatives. Rubio could help Romney win in Florida. He’s also young and charismatic; two things Romney decidedly isn’t. With the right name on the ticket, Romney poses a serious threat to Obama in November; more so than many give him credit for. His approval numbers might be up, but Obama’s hold on the White House is anything but secure.

Officials to look into absorbing road commission tasks By Jackie Smith Staff Reporter

CMU alumna Emily Doerr stands in the hall of Hostel Detroit. Doerr founded the hostel, located just outside of Corktown in Detroit, in 2011.


City’s only hostel founded by CMU alumna By Ben Harris Senior Reporter

Of the four street corners at the intersection of Vermont and Spruce in the Corktown district of Detroit, a building stands on only one. The others: Open fields with telephone poles, tree saplings and grass growing through the cracks in the sidewalk. The sign reading “Hostel Detroit” looks like the neon sign of a ‘60s restaurant. The hostel was founded by Emily Doerr, a 2007 Central Michigan University alumna. It opened for business in April of 2011. “The neighborhood is incredible,” she said. “It was kind of a natural fit to be where we are.” The hostel is centrally located — the bars and shops of the Corktown district are a short walk or bike ride away. The building used to be Section 8 apartment buildings. Now a diagonal rainbow of iridescent painted brick cascades across the side of the building. A keypad on the front door provides 24-hour access for lodgers. Inside, there is a small foyer with a guest book, blackboard with messages and events going on and an orange sculpture of a tree. Beyond that, the place resembles a home: A full kitchen with stacks of cookbooks above the cupboards; board games on the shelf over the washer and dryer; a dining room with a box of video cassettes such as “Buffy” and “The Wedding Singer” and a fireplace-themed space heater. At capacity, the hostel accommodates 26 people — 16 on the first floor and 10 on the second floor. Part of the upstairs is rented on a month-tomonth basis to lodgers looking for more permanent residence in the city. Art hangs on almost every wall. The portraits, photo-

Korea | continued from 3A

Roh said there are three reasons students should go to Korea. “Korea is an up and coming country in Asia. We know Japan too much; China — we know them too much too. But Korea just creates the best of the best talented individuals; sports, academics, scientists and writers,” he said. “The way of life is completely different from the United States in terms of the way they respect senior citizens and the way they value education. It’s not a choice; it’s sink or swim.” Roh also said Korea has “very deep and unique historical and cultural components, which (are) completely different from China and Japan.” Affordable study abROad programs Dianne DeSalvo, CMU Study Abroad director, said the exchange Micheloni went on was a new program that started in 2011 and allows students to study abroad at a very affordable price. She said studying abroad is essential in today’s global world.

graphs and sculptures have all been donated by community members. The project as a whole, Doerr said, was community-driven. Doerr shelled out the last of her savings account to get the keys to the door on Nov. 1, 2010 but said she was far from on her own after that. “I wrote a check to get the keys to the place, and four days later we had our first meeting,” she said. “We had done a Facebook and email group, and like 50 people showed up wanting to volunteer.” Fundraising efforts made it possible to get projects like electrical and flooring done professionally, but community members chipped in to donate the smaller things. “I just kept driving a U-Haul around Detroit and filling it up with books and furniture and blankets and dishes — lots of dishes, everybody has extra dishes — and we just kept getting all this stuff,” she said. “Everything is from the community, and that’s what’s so cool about the project. Everybody got to kind of have a hand.” The reason the community can have such a large role in the making of the hostel, Doerr said, is because the hostel is not for profit. “Typically in hostels, you check in and get charged for parking, locker, sheets and towel you get charged for laundry, and here you pay up front and you don’t have to dicker and deal with money,” Doerr said. “It’s far more cozy, and people are saying they like that. Yes, from a business standpoint, we could make an extra $2 a person charging for lockers, but what’s the point? We aren’t here to make money. We’re here to break even. We could make that money, but if we don’t have to, instead we can provide a better service so people feel more taken care of.” Students from CMU came

“Now it’s becoming essential. The world is becoming so interconnected,” DeSalvo said. She said the myth that it’s always going to be more expensive is not necessarily true. “For students who want affordable programs, all they have to do is tell us. We have a lot of tuition exchanges, and room and board will probably be pretty much the same, so all we’re talking about is a plane ticket, which you can apply for a scholarship for,” she said. DeSalvo said Micheloni is a perfect example of the program’s affordability. She said it was probably cheaper for her to be in Korea compared to a semester at CMU. “You get $1,400 toward airfare. It’s tuition exchange, so you just pay 12 credits here, free room and board in exchange for being a conversation partner with your roommates and a stipend of $600 if you’re willing to work in an English language clinic,” DeSalvo said. Registration is still open for students interested in studying abroad in summer or fall 2012. Appointments with a study abroad adviser can be made in Ronan Hall 330 or by calling the office at 774-4308.

with Judy Idema, the Honors Program’s associate director, to paint rooms upstairs a week before the hostel opened. The University of Michigan architecture school also designed a summer class where 15 students designed and built a multipurpose shed that could be used as a stage for performances or storage unit for bicycles, among other things, and all Hostel Detroit had to do was give money for supplies. Every weekend in the summer, the hostel is at capacity, Doerr said, and in the winter it gets good business. About half the visitors are international. “We have paid for no advertising,” she said. “People just Google ‘hostel and Detroit’, and it leads them to us.” Hostel Detroit is the only hostel in the city. David Naintis, however, is a local. An adjunct professor in the philosophy department at the University of Detroit Mercy, he stayed at the hostel along with three students doing work with immigration as part of an alternative spring break trip. Nantais said in the alternative spring break program, the students are supposed to stay somewhere communityoriented and safe — not a five-star hotel or a ramshackle motel — and the hostel was a perfect fit. “This is comfortable, clean and it’s nice,” he said. “It’s not in the suburb, but it’s not in the ghetto either. It gives the students a chance, because even though our school is located in the city, our school is 85 percent commuter.” As the University of Detroit Mercy is located in Detroit, some students would be apprehensive about doing an alternative spring break in the city, Nantais explained. “Last year, we assigned a kid to Detroit and he came in our

office literally screaming about how he was sacrificing his spring break and how evil we were, but by the end of the trip he stood up in front of a group of people and talked about how in the end he thought every student should do Detroit (alternative spring break).” Nantais and Doerr agreed Detroit is a complex and growing city. Doerr said although there were plenty of things she would change about the city, she loves it all the same, and the community drive behind the facility demonstrates Detroit’s potential. “Talk about meeting a need,” Nantais said about the hostel’s contribution to the city.

Isabella County officials have begun to consider the feasibility of absorbing road commission responsibilities since state lawmakers adopted legislation allowing them to last month. Toward the end of last year, a bill made headway in Lansing that aimed to give county governments the option to take on local road commissions’ financial and administrative tasks. Gov. Rick Snyder gave his stamp of approval Feb. 21. Now under law, a county in which officials appoint road commissioner, can establish itself as the authority overseeing maintenance and construction of county roads. However, in counties like Isabella, where road commissioners are elected, county governments can only decide whether to put the decision before voters. Isabella County Administrator Tim Dolehanty has said officials will have to consider capital costs as well as the road commission’s management structure. He said that includes evaluation of pension plans, employee benefits, equipment maintenance and cost and how many roads and bridges are in need of repair. “The real question then becomes, ‘Will that savings be enough to make up for this going in?’” Dolehanty said. So far, he said the preliminary answer seems to be “No.” Still, county officials have already begun to reflect on the matter — most recently in the establishing of a five-person task force. As discussion of merging continues, county board Chairman George Green, who was responsible for appointing members to the task force, said officials will try to make any information, budgetary and otherwise avail-

able for the public on the county and road commission websites. He pegged it as one of the most important points of the process, because some county residents have the misconception that the road commission is “rich.” “Roads are the biggest thing in the out-county that we have that people see,” Green said. “What I’d like to do in this endeavor is explain to people. Whether the road commission has hidden money or not, I don’t know, but I’m going to find out.” The road commission’s fund balance at a glance could be misleading to the public, said Tony Casali, manager of the Isabella County Road Commission. But he said the entity has faced several cuts over the past few years, including a near$800,000 budget decrease and a reduction in staff from 51 to 37. Even if the road commission does merge with Isabella County, he said, it still might not take care of the real problem — a lack of revenue. Casali compared the decision to purchasing a business. “You need to know all the liabilities and assets,” he said. “Part of it is looking at if we have any outstanding debts, the condition of the roads and what it’s going to take to get them into a good condition.” The soonest voters could potentially see the issue at the polls is August, which Dolehanty said could be beneficial to Isabella County’s fiscal start date in October. But officials say it’s too soon to know where the discussion will go. Green said he just wants to “make sure we have our ducks in a row.” “Otherwise, I’m wasting people’s money; people’s time,” he said.

It’s brand-spankin’ new. It’s a podcast about vibe. It might be funny... or not.

WMHW Modern Rock 91.5 to rebrand, change station name in fall 2012 By David Oltean Senior Reporter

Central Michigan University’s student-run radio station Modern Rock 91.5 WMHW-FM will rebrand itself, including a name change, in the fall 2012 semester. The station’s new name, “Moore Rock Radio,” has been approved for change on Oct. 1. The name was proposed by executive staff members to develop a new image and encompass a broader arrangement of music and was announced at the Student Broadcast Executive Council’s Feb. 23 meeting. The radio station’s student executive staff had discussed rebranding WMHW in semesters past and decided to schedule the complete transition for the upcoming fall semester, giving the staff the summer for preparation. Along with a new station name and a wider variety of rock genres to play from, WMHW will have new slogans, new voices in commercials and new station imaging. Rothbury senior Mitchell Anderson, the station’s program director, said the transi-

tion will not make a drastic change to the music played, though more genres of rock will be added to playlists. Anderson said the new brand will allow student disc jockeys to play songs from as early as the mid ‘90s, rather than the station’s primarily recent music that is currently played. “It’s now going to be a more all-encompassing rock station,” Anderson said. “We’re still going to support local musicians and play a lot of what we have on there now, but we want to broaden our rock horizons.” Anderson said talks of a new brand for WMHW had taken place before he became the program director, though next year’s staff will have to undergo the transition. “We’ll be preparing for it during the summer, and then next fall semester it will be the first semester to go live as a different type of station,” Anderson said. “I’m really excited for the next executive staff and 91.5 program director to take over. They’re going to have a lot of work to do, but they’ll be the first staff that gets to pave their own way for the new station.”

“If someone accidentally says the word “retarded” we will correct each other, and there’s more awareness after people sign the banner opposed to before,” the Missouri native said. Special Olympics Senior Manager of Social Media Ryan Eades said most of the Special Olympics athletes find this a positive movement. “They’ve dealt with stigma and prejudice and all kinds of stuff their entire lives, so for them to rally around a message of respect and inclusion is something they’re extremely excited about and extremely excited to advocate for,” he said. Since the campaign website’s inception in 2008, more

than 247,000 have pledged on to stop saying the word. Palumbo said on March 3, that number grew by about 35,000 new pledges. The movement makes the world a better place not only for those with mental disabilities but also for those who pledge, he said. “If you rearrange your thinking about people with disabilities this way, it will enable you to engage in this extraordinary self-enriching relationship with intellectual disabilities and be able to have that source of selfimprovement in your life,” he said. Palumbo and Shriver’s goal


Romeo junior Dillon Stanco, business grants director and DJ for the radio station, said the name change will allow the radio station to play more types of rock rather than the indie and alternative rock the station currently broadcasts. “We decided to broaden 91.5’s spectrum of music,” Stanco said. “It’s not going to be terribly different; we’re just going to try to include more types of rock.” Stanco said members felt the current name wasn’t drawing in the attention expected, so options were considered for a new name for WMHW. Stanco said the executive staff had considered switching radio station names to “Mountain 91.5” and “Modern Rock 101.1,” though they eventually decided to make a less significant change. “After some convincing, the executive staff decided that instead of a complete format change altogether, we could just try something less drastic and keep it simpler to refine modern rock,” Stanco said.

Zombies to invade Deerfield nature park for fundraiser By Brittany wright Staff Reporter

for the campaign now is for it to floruish beyond just signing the banner and for people to utilize it as a gateway for understanding people with intellectual disabilities. “We want this to be a much richer campaign about moving away from stereotypes to a more understanding inclusive campaign about people with intellectual disabilities,” Palumbo said. “People can take the pledge then volunteer with Special Olympics or just become more sensitive toward people with intellectual disabilities. It is the first step toward a deep life change and deep perception change for people with intellectual disabilities.”

At the end of the month, zombies will roam Deerfield Nature Park to raise money for Special Olympics Michigan. At 1 p.m. on March 31, a Zombie Attack fundraiser will be hosted by a group of five students from a RPL 430: Planning Recreation Programs and Events class. During the event, runners wearing flags will climb obstacles, sprint for safety and travel along wooded trails to avoid deadly zombies. Runners who complete the race with at least one flag will have an opportunity to place and win a prize. One assignment for the class is to plan an event, and the group decided on the Zombie Attack! 1 Mile Run (Away!) event. “I actually got the idea

from the Boston Zombie run, which is a huge event, and I thought it would be cool and a great chance to try it out here “ said Auburn senior Carley Shann, who is part of the group organizing the event. Entry costs $5 for those who pre-register and $8 for registration on the day of the event. The group chose to donate all proceeds from the event to the Special Olympics, which is meaningful to all of the organizers, Shann said. “We hope to have at least 25 to 30 people at the event, but we want as many people as possible to come,” said Ann Arbor sophomore and event organizer Kristina Graham. “There are no requirements, and it’s only a mile, so anyone could run or walk it.” The coordinators also

have planed to have 30 zombies roam the course while the participants are going through each of the different obstacles. Detroit freshman Damon Golden has participated in similar events and said he plans to be involved in this one as well. “I believe that this event is a good idea not only as support for the Special Olympics; I feel like it is going to be epic,” Golden said. Graham said people of any age can run in the event. If they are under 18, they have to have a parentsigned form. “We are encouraging people of all ages and athletic ability to come out for the one-mile run to support our local Special Olympics,” Shann said.

Women’s basketball 1.5 seconds away of NCAA birth, MAC title


By Kristopher Lodes | Staff Reporter

In a last-second finish in the Mid-American Conference tournament championship game, the Central Michigan women’s basketball team lost to Eastern Michigan 72-71 Saturday at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. It was the Chippewas (20-15) game to lose as they scored with 13.7 seconds left off a bucket from freshman guard Crystal Bradford to take a 71-70 lead and then MAC Player of the Year senior guard Tavelyn James traveled with 11 seconds left. Freshman guard Jessica Green was fouled with nine seconds left and went to the line for the one-and-one. Green missed the front end of it, and Eagles (23-8) senior guard Paige Redditt made a layup with 1.5 seconds left; CMU had no time to answer. “James is the best player in our league. I think sometimes the best player gets protected, and we were worrying about James, and it allowed Watkins to get to the basket,” head coach Sue Guevara said. It was the Chippewas first trip to the MAC Tournament championship game since 1991. A win would have put CMU in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1984 and only second time ever. The Chippewas were led by sophomore forward Taylor Johnson with 20 points and seven assists, while the freshman trio shinned as well. Freshman guard Crystal Bradford had 16 points,

Crystal Bradford scored 20 second-half points along with 12 rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and a steal to upset the top-seeded Falcons. w “This is a game of runs, and I just thought we maintained our poise,” Guevara said. “I think that’s the biggest thing, that we were very composed.” w The victory put CMU in the Mid-American Conference tournament title game for the first time since 1991. w

MARCH 9 NO. 1 Bowling Green 66

The Eagles layup with 1.5 seconds left sealed the deal and kept the Chippewas out of the NCAA tournament. w It would’ve been the first time CMU has been in the NCAA tournament since 1984. w “I think the experience of being here was good for the team. Now we know how it feels, and I know our team never wants to feel this way again,” Johnson said. “We did not feel any fatigue. We had this game. It still doesn’t feel real.” w



w The freshman trio of Crystal Bradford, Jessica Green and Jas’Mine Bracey led the Chippewas to a narrow victory. w The three youngsters scored 43 of the 58 points. w “We’re trying to help our team at least win a MAC Championship and help the seniors get a championship,” Bracey said. w CMU came roaring out of the halftime break


NO. 2 EMU 72

The Chippewas 2-3 zone stifled the Ball State offense to shooting just 33 percent from the field. w “Our defense has really cared for us these last couple games, and right now that has been our bread and butter,” head coach Sue Guevara said. w CMU only shot nine 3-pointers, making three, but did most of the work down low near the basket. w

The Central Michigan men’s basketball team finished with the secondworst season under head coach Ernie Zeigler’s sixyear tenure with 11 wins. That 11-21 record was an improvement to last season’s 10-21 team, but he said he was proud of the way they fought. “I was very proud of our guys, but unfortunately it did not get us over the hump,” Zeigler said. A late comeback attempt was not enough to extend the Chippewas season Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio against Toledo. The Rockets held off CMU 75-72 to advance to the Mid-American Conference quarterfinals. CMU trailed 59-44 with 7:10 remaining, but an offensive surge cut the Rockets lead to one with 57 seconds left. “These guys (CMU) played with great determination and heart,” Zeigler said. “The last seven minutes were very indicative of the growth we have had over the last month.” Freshman Austin McBroom had a chance to tie the game in the last second, but his 3-point attempt from well beyond the arc fell short. Sophomore guard Rian Pearson had a game-high 20 points, and freshman guard Julius Brown added 18 for the Rockets. “They both had good games, and they both helped their team down the stretch,” Zeigler said. CMU (11-21) had four players score in double-digits led by sophomore Trey Zeigler, who had 17. Sophomore Derek Jackson had 16, junior Olivier Mbaigoto had 14 and McBroom scored 13. Free-throw shooting proved to be a deciding factor with UT making 23-30 compared to CMU hitting 15-25. Trey went to the line with a chance to pull the Chippewas within one with 13 seconds left but failed to convert both attempts. A MEN’S | 3B

Wrestling wins its 11th straight MAC tournament title By Jeff papworth Staff reporter

The Central Michigan wrestling team won its 11thstraight Mid-American Conference tournament championship title with help from three wrestlers making their first postseason appearance March 4 at Athens,Ohio. The Chippewas fended off MAC regular season champion Kent State 89-79, after holding a two-point lead over the Golden Flashes entering the finals. “Our guys fought really hard the whole tournament,” head coach Tom Borrelli said. “It was really important to them to not

be the team to let the streak that we have going die.” Chippewas true freshman Zach Horan of the 133-pound division took his 0-1 mark in the MAC and defeated the first-ranked wrestler in his bracket on his way to a conference title. He defeated a fellow unranked foe in Robert Jillard of Northern Illinois 5-0 in the conference title matchup. Nobody wearing maroon and gold said they were surprised by Horan’s performance. He was the No. 17 ranked recruit in the nation and was a three-time state runner-up. “I expected to do well and yeah, I planned on win-

ning,” Horan said. “I’m really happy about it. I didn’t have anything to lose. I was unseeded. No one other than my coaches and me expected me to really do much.” He played in a de-facto play-in match against teammate Tyler Keselring on Feb. 24 to earn a spot in the starting lineup. “I (didn’t) think either one of them would have let us down because everything they had to fight through to get the opportunity,” Borrelli said. It came by no surprise that the Chippewas spark plug in sophomore Joe Roth and true freshman Mike Ottinger

also won a conference title on their first attempt. Roth was named the tournaments’ Most Outstanding Wrestler. CMU junior Ben Bennett breezed through his matches by grabbing a pin in his first time out and beating Brad Dieckhaus 8-1 to win his third conference title. Donnie Corby was another CMU junior who won a championship. It was his first. CMU wrestlers Peter Sturgeon and Scott Mattingly earned an NCAA bid without a conference title to their name.

Freshman trio lead women’s team in MAC tournament run By Kristopher Lodes Staff Reporter

Help was needed with sophomore forward Taylor Johnson and other veterans struggling to score at the beginning of the Central Michigan women’s basketball team’s trip to Cleveland. The Chippewas found it in its group of freshmen, guards Crystal Bradford and Jessica Green along with forward Jas’Mine Bracey. Against Ohio on Wednesday, in round two of the Mid-American Conference Tournament, they won 58-55, 45 of those points were provided by the freshman trio. Bradford led the way 17 points and 11 rebounds, Green had 16 points, Bracey added 10. Freshman guard Kerby Tamm also contributed with a key 3-pointer that started a 9-0 CMU run. “They have the confidence to score and get rebounds,” head coach Sue Guevara said. “Our team is coming together and understand, yeah the freshmen did lead us today, but tomorrow it could be the sophomores.” But the sophomores didn’t lead the way in the quarterfinals against Miami. It was the freshmen again in the 78-64 win on Thursday. This time, it was Bracey leading the way with 21 points, Bradford picked up another double-double with 19 points, and 13 rebounds, and Green had 17 points. “My team pumped me up

telling me I could do it and keep my head up,” Green said. “I listened to them, and my shots started falling.” It wasn’t just freshmen with good numbers. Junior guard Brandie Baker and sophomore guard Niki DiGuilio had eight points, but Johnson continued to struggle with just three points and 12 turnovers. “I know our team is better than our 8-8 finish in conference play,” Guevara said. “A big part of that is the maturation of this whole team.” Next up was top-seeded Bowling Green, and the Chippewas needed everyone to step up, and they did. Johnson was back to her usual self, scoring 14, and DiGuilio provided a spark off the bench with 12 points, including a couple 3-pointers. But it was the freshmen leading the team yet again. Bracey and Bradford both had doubledoubles, Bradford with nearly a triple-double scoring 20 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists. Bracey had 12 points and rebounds. Green also chimed in with eight points and rebounds, including the game-sealing layup after a Bradford steal and assist. “My freshmen are really welcoming to the challenge,” Guevara said. “There is no fear in their eyes.” The win over BGSU put CMU in the MAC Championship game against second-seeded Eastern Michigan and MAC Player of the Year senior guard Tavelyn James.

Johnson led the way with 20 points, but it was Bradford who, with three fouls, was the talk of the broadcasters down the stretch. In the final minute and a half, Bradford was at her best. With an assist to Green, Bradford helped put CMU up 69-68. With just 14 seconds left and her team down 70-69, it was Bradford with a spin-right lefty floater that gave her team the lead yet again 71-70. Although the Chippewas went on to drop the game in the final nine seconds, they never gave up, despite having no rest playing four games in four days and a fifth game on March 3. A lot of that has to do with a young team. “We did not feel any fatigue,” Johnson said after the loss. When CMU arrived to Cleveland, the MAC gave out its annual season awards with Bracey, Bradford and Green all on the All-Freshman team. But none of them won Freshman of the Year. That honor was given to Northern Illinois forward Claire Jakubicek. Jakubicek hasn’t played since Feb 16 with a broken foot. Bradford, Bracey and Johnson were named to the AllTournament Team. Bradford set tournament records in field goals made (36), field goals attempted (80) and rebounds (53). “I needed to bring it for my team and show that we can win,” Bradford said.

Kevin Mays one spot shy of NCAA finals, second team All-American By Matt Thompson Sports Editor

Kevin Mays, Central Michigan track and field senior thrower, finished 10th in the nation Saturday in Boise, Idaho in the NCAA meet. His throw of 66-04.25 was one position shy of making the NCAA finals round. His performance earned him the second-team All-American honors in the nation. “For Kevin to become an All-American is exciting for the program,” director of track and field and cross country Willie Randolph said in a quote from CMU athletics. “It shows our student athletes that our goals are achievable. That certificate doesn’t come close to fully expressing how we feel about him and the long-lasting impact he has made on this team and on this program.”

CMU shot 51 percent including 36 percent behind the arch, but the team was haunted by 20 turnovers including 11 steals by EMU. “Turnovers early was big, but we cut them down in the second half,” Guevara said. “When you’re in the championship game, those are the things you have to control.” The loss does not necessarily bring an end to the Chippe-

It appeared that Mays might sneak to the finals as last in while he was ninth with three throwers remaining. But Michigan State thrower Jay Gillespie outdid him and bounced him from the finals round. “We saw a very focused Kevin Mays,” Randolph said. “He knew he belonged here; he knew he could be on top of that award podium. It’s just unfortunate he didn’t have one more throw to get on that podium. We’re so proud of him.” Mays finished off indoor competitions for CMU this semester. March 23, the outdoor season begins with some CMU athletes being at Stanford and some at LSU. For Mays, this spring will be his last opportunity to compete for CMU. “What he did to come out here and still be able to comwas season.With its run in the MAC Tournament, it looks as if the Women’s National Invitational Tournament (WNIT) could be in the future for the team for the second season in a row. “I think the experience of being here was good for the team.

pete at a high level speaks volumes of this young man and his mentality,” Randolph said. “He came in here and gave everything he had. We’re proud of him, and we’re proud of coach Ridgway to help prepare him in that short time.”

The gymnastics team scored a season-high 195.300 Friday in Seattle while competing against No. 24 Washington and San Jose State. The Chippewas finished in second place out of the three schools, but a season-high performance is important heading into the final Mid-American Conference matchup Saturday against Western Michigan. CMU already clinched a share of the MAC regular season title, but a win against WMU would make it an outright championship. March 24, CMU will compete in the MAC Championships, and the follow week possibly in the NCAA Regional Championships. The bars helped CMU get to that high score by posting a season-best 49. Sophomore Brittany Petzold had a 9.875, while senior Kristin Teubner had a 9.850 leading the Chippewas. Teubner and freshman Halle Moraw tied for fourth on the beam with both scoring a 9.8. Junior Kari Dieffender also pitched in on the bars with a 9.8 score. The nationally ranked Huskies, who were playing at home, narrowly beat CMU by 1.05 with their 196.350 score. For the fifth consecutive meet, Teubner finished with a score above 39; she finished with a score of 39.2. That score was

CMU trailed 18-8 early, but the deficit was cut to one with a 12-3 run by the Chippewas. A 3-pointer by Mbaigoto capped the run, making it 21-20. The Rockets fourth 3-pointer of the half gave them a 33-27 lead with 1:52 remaining in the first-half. Toledo finished shooting 6-12 from 3-point range and led 35-31 at halftime. Coach Zeigler said he is excited about the direction of the program and the young talent he has to work with. “Of the four guys we had in double figures last night, two were sophomores and one was a freshman, and I think those guys will be a great nucleus to build upon,” he said.

MSU earns No. 1 seed, plays Friday











By Matt Thompson Sports Editor

Heading into Selection Sunday, it appeared three No. 1 seeds were locks in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament with slot one opening. Michigan State capitalized on that opening by beating Ohio State 68-64 in the Big Ten tournament championship game. Along with the Spartans, Kentucky, Syracuse and North Carolina were also the one seeds decided by the NCAA tournament committee. Central Michigan Athletics Director Dave Heeke served in that committee. Two other schools in Michigan will be dancing in the tournament. The Michigan Wolverines earned a four seed and will take on Mid-American Conference champion Ohio, a 13 seed. Two seasons ago, No. 14 Ohio knocked out No. 3 Georgetown in a major upset. Michigan and Ohio will play Friday in Nashville, Tenn. It may be confusing for Michigan head coach John Beilein, who refers to Ohio State as “Ohio,” to try to demote them. The University of Detroit won the Horizon League conference tournament and received an automatic bid. The Titans are a 15 seed and will face No. 2 Kansas Friday in their first round matchup. Michigan State will face No. 16 LIU Brooklyn Friday in its opening round matchup. With a win, the Spartans would go on to face the winner of the No. 8 Memphis, No. 9 Saint Louis matchup on Sunday. A No. 16 seed has never beaten a No. 1 seed; MSU will try to avoid being the first as they play in Columbus, Ohio. Other Big Ten schools are No. 4 Indiana, No. 4 Wisconsin and No. 10 Purdue. Purdue faces St. Mary’s Friday and with a win would face the winner of the Kansas-Detroit matchup. Virginia Commonwealth University, which last season made an impressive Final Four run as a No. 12 seed, is once again a 12 seed. VCU will face No. 5 Wichita State on Thursday.

Baseball: What we missed over break Team breaks even at 4-4 while traveling By Kristopher Lodes Staff Reporter

Some college students head to some exotic place for spring break. The Central Michigan baseball team went to two nice locations over break to continue its non-conference season by traveling to Lake Charles, La. to face Southeastern Louisiana and McNeese State. Then it was off to Manoa, Hawaii, where the Chippewas played four games with the University of Hawaii. It was an up and down trip for the Chippewas. With a late night double-header against the Warriors on Saturday, the team has split even over break going 4-4. The Chippewas are looking for a third-straight MAC West Championship run. Best Game: 7-6 win over Southeastern Louisiana Out of the four wins, the best had to be the team’s 7-6 comeback win March 2 over Southeastern Louisiana, who had only lost one game at that point in the season. The Chippewas were trailing in the bottom of the sev-

enth 5-3 when they tied the game on a fielder’s choice and an error off a hit from senior first baseman Nate Theunissen. Then, with two outs, fellow senior left fielder Sam Russell hit a double that scored two more runs, giving CMU the 7-5 advantage. In the ninth, Southeastern Louisiana got one run back and was looking for another by trying to steal second. But senior catcher William Arnold threw the runner out for the final out, giving the Chippewas the 7-6 win. Worst Game: 8-1 loss against McNeese State Out of the four losses, the worst had to be the following game of the doubleheader with Southeastern Louisiana. CMU not only lost the game 8-1, getting just four hits in the game, but it also lost its senior leader behind the plate, Arnold, with an injury. The Lions jumped out to an early 3-0 lead on the Chippewas who would cut it to 3-1 in the top of the third. But the Lions answered that run with one of their own in the bottom half of the third, making it 4-1, and continued to put on the pressure with two runs in the fifth and sixth innings, making it an 8-1 final.

Break MVP: Senior Sam Russell The spring break MVP had to be the senior left fielder Sam Russell who batted .357 with six RBIs. With Arnold hurting and senior third baseman Tyler Hall still injured, the Chippewas needed to look to a senior to get some timely at-bats and help them survive without arguably the two best hitters on the team. That senior was Russell, whose six RBIs included the two to pull ahead of the Lions in the comeback win during the first game of the break. He went 3-for-3 with two RBIs in a 6-5 win against Hawaii. Russell also had two against McNeese

Worst Game: 4-1 loss Mar. 3 against Loyola Marymount CMU only mustered three hits against the Lions, scoring its only run in the first inning. Senior Molly Coldren drove in the run with an RBI triple. LMU pitcher Molly Medeiros pitched a complete game while stricking out four and walking one. Junior Kara Dornbos pitched five innings allowing four runs, two earned in the loss for CMU. Biggest Surprise: Freshman Chelsea DeLamielleure DeLamielleure had two hits including a double

The weather is now feeling more like spring again, and CMU will open Theunissen Stadium 3:05 p.m. Tuesday against No. 23 ranked Madonna University of the NAIA division and then play the following day at the same time against

What to look for after break There is plenty to look forward to after students arrive in Mount Pleasant after break.


Davenport University. Catcher William Arnold saw some playing time at first base in the Chippewas 5-1 loss and recorded a hit, so look for him to return behind the plate.

The Central Michigan softball team entered Spring Break winless, 0-5, and looking for a win. Wins racked up as the Chippewas went 7-4 during their week spent in Tampa, Fla. competing in the USF Under Armour Invitational. Best Game: 5-3 win Mar. 9 against East Tennessee State The Chippewas held a 3-0 lead heading to the bottom of the sixth before the Buccaneers scored two and added another run in the bottom of the seventh to send the game to extra innings. CMU regained the lead in the top of the eighth, pushing across two runs. Sophomore Morgan Yuncker pitched a scoreless eighth to earn the win.

State to help end a twogame losing streak.

against USF on March 7. She also had an RBI double in the win against Temple and followed that game by driving in the game-winning run in the top of the eighth against East Tennessee State. The St. Clair Shores native had three doubles and four RBIs during break. MVP: Junior Summer Knoop Knoop had 14 hits and drove in eight over break. She was 3-3 with three RBIs in the win against Cleveland State and had two hits and an RBI against Hampton. The Reed City native drove in the winning run in a 2-0 victory against South Dakota State. Best performance: Junior Kara Dornbos Last year, Dornbos had the team’s top earned run average, and she showed how Friday, pitching a complete game allowing one

What’s coming up: Hoosier Class CMU will head to Bloomington, Ind. this weekend and play five games in three days. Friday, the Chippewas take on North Dakota and Indiana. Saturday is against Chicago-Illinois and Michigan State. They will finish out the tournament facing Wright State Sunday.
