Rise in narcotics spurs series of drug busts Four charged Monday in latest raid by BAYANET By Orrin Shawl Staff Reporter

An influx of narcotics into the area has led to three drug busts in the last three weeks by the Bay Area Narcotics Enforcement Team. Most recently, four suspects were arrested Monday afternoon on numerous drug

charges in Mount Pleasant. Cheryl Louise Haggart, 53, of Mount Pleasant was charged with seven felony counts after police said they seized various narcotics from an area residence. Amy Marie Simons, 26, of Mount Pleasant was charged with four felony counts. Detroit resident David Washington Wyche, 40, has been charged with 10 felony counts and one high court misdemeanor. Kimberly Louise Wyche, 33, of Detroit was charged with a high court

misdemeanor. Charges for the suspects included the delivery of illegal drugs and maintaining a drug house. Additionally, Haggart was charged with felony firearm possession. “It puts a little concern in the community as to what is out there and what’s available,” said Lt. Jeff Anthony, BAYANET section commander. “The two differences that are significant is that you have the large college and you have the casino. They were looking to target those

areas as well as anybody that has money and has a need or a desire to buy drugs and narcotics.” BAYANET commenced the investigation March 6 and concluded it Monday with the arrest of the four individuals. The exact locations of the residences were not released. Other arrests There was also earlier in March Comstock Park Dwane Jones, 27,

an arrest in which resident allegedly

sold heroin to an undercover officer. The illegal transaction then led to a high-speed vehicle chase in which Jones was eventually stopped in Mecosta County, after initially fleeing from Mount Pleasant. BAYANET charged 26-yearold Detroit resident Marcos Martinez II on March 10 with delivery of cocaine, intent to deliver cocaine near school property and possession of marijuana on school property. “Our investigation focused on the heroin aspect of this

distribution operation,” Anthony added. “This investigation is different in that there is a variety of drugs that are available here that you don’t generally see in every narcotics investigation.” Three search warrants were granted at residences as well as one at a storage facility. Among the drugs found were 10 grams of heroin, 2.5 grams of cocaine, more than two pounds of marijuana and 102 morphine pills. A

GREEN GLORY St. Patrick’s celebrated on campus, downtown

By Michael L. Hoffman | Student Life Editor

Mount Pleasant was alive with St. Patrick’s Day celebrations — some better advised than others — from Anspach Hall to Main Street. Harrison Township freshman Timothy Skillman said he celebrated the holiday by staying sober and making sure his Phi Kappa Tau fraternity brothers were being safe. “I am watching out for my brothers today,” Skillman said. “Making sure the house is safe and that everybody is doing OK.” The fraternity associate said he had not seen anything too exciting over the course of his day, but he expected it to pick up.

Check out a student’s interview about how he celebrated! Evan Agnello said this year’s St. Patrick’s Day has been mellow compared to years past. The Troy senior said because the holiday is on a weekday, it is much more subdued than if it were on a weekend. “It’s been a great day,” he said. “The weather is great, the people are great. It’s been a pretty chill day, just hanging out with friends and indulging in some fun.” He said he is trying to make A St Patty’s | 2A

Parking Services collects almost $3 million yearly Most funds generated by auto permits By Tony Wittkowski Staff Reporter

CMU Parking Services collects almost $3 million from vehicle registration, parking citations and meters every year. The revenue accumulated through Parking Services goes toward capital projects all over the university. “It all goes to the university, which is divided up by the university,” said CMU

Police Chief Bill Yeagley. The expenditure budget for the amount of money accumulated has stayed constant for the last four years, according to information from Parking Services Yeagley provided. The bulk of the money Parking Services accumulates comes from parking registration. The fiscal year begins July 1 and ends on June 30, Yeagley said. The total amount of revenue in the 2007 to 2008 year was $2,862,464, then $2,844,313 in 2008 to 2009 and $2,767,030 in 2009 to 2010, Yeagley said.

So far during the 20102011 fiscal year, $2,377,480 has been accumulated — 82 percent of which has come from vehicle registration. According to the data, about $700,000 of the total revenue generated has been spent each year. Taylor Burnell, a freshman from Waterford, did not realize how much the university received each year from Parking Services. “I was surprised by the amount they make,” Burnell said. “It seems like a lot of money for something so small.” Livonia sophomore Brit-

tany Harris said she does not think Parking Services should charge as much as they do for campus parking passes. “Commuters have to pay $175 to park somewhere,” she said. Just over 50 percent of the potential revenue from parking citations are lost because of appeals on average each year, Yeagley said. “We’re trying to be fair and reasonable with students,” Yeagley said. “Ninety-nine percent of the time the person is wrong.”

CMU is doing its best to stay ahead of the curve in the rapidly changing world of technology. CMU’s Office of Information Technology hosted Technology Summit 2011 on Wednesday in the Bovee University Center. The daylong summit focused on where CMU stands technology-wise, and where it plans to go in the future. Roger Rehm, vice president of Information Technology, said in the keynote presentation “CMU Technology Road Map” that the university’s primary goal is making sure that students, faculty and staff are getting the most for their money when it comes to technology. “We have focused our investments on standardization and tech consolidation, but it has to work for people,” Rehm said. “We have an opportunity to focus on things that get the university the most bang for its buck.” Much of his and physical therapy Professor Peter Loubert’s question-and-answer presentation focused on what CMU is doing to cut costs and run more efficiently by utilizing certain technologies. One of the policies Rehm discussed was the PrintQ policy, which limits undergraduate students to $10 worth of printing a semester and graduate students to $15, which he said, along with other policies is estimated to save the university close to $100,000. He said when OIT was developing PrintQ they wanted to make sure they “did it right” and that it would actually reduce the amount of paper used on campus. He added he would like to see CMU move more toward cloud technol-

Nuclear plant workers’ dedication to common good a national trait TAGAJO, Japan — In Japan they call them the “Faceless 50.� They are the workers from the ravaged Fukushima nuclear plant who stayed to fight the fires and keep the reactors from melting down. Watching newscasts of the 50 risk everything for the common good, the Japanese see a quiet selflessness — and see themselves. “We all support them and want them to be successful,� said Shinichi, 34, a banker who only gave his first name as he weathered a line to buy gas for company vehicles in Tagajo, about 70 miles north of the battle to save the reactors. “They’re probably the 50 hardest-working people in the world right now. But I’d do the same thing.� As the Japanese are tested with disasters beyond their imagining, many see the bravery of the Faceless 50 as the epitome of group responsibility, known as “Yamato-damashi,� or Japanese spirit. That collective consciousness is almost second nature to the Japanese, Shinichi said, especially in times of crisis. “This is our Yamato spirit,� he said. “We don’t understand where it comes from. But we all have it.� That self-perception has imbued the response of the Japanese to their dire circumstance, with the ground beneath them shifting or underwater and a nuclear nightmare on the cusp of being realized. It has been seen in the stoicism of life in the

ogy, which is Internet-based technology located off-site, to save paper. “We’d like to make things more efficient, especially employee production and eliminate the paper form and instead rely on technology,� Rehm said. “We’re looking to find ways to have technology help us.� Rehm also discussed at length that CMU does not believe that centralizing services is always the best idea. He said certain technologies, like Cmail, are better when centralized because it makes everything easier for the user. But other technologies like desktop management are more individualized based on users’ preferences. He said when OIT looks at adding new technology to the university it considers what is best for everyone, not what is easiest. “What’s the best way to deliver services?� He asked the audience.

rifle and more than $7,100 in cash was also seized. “We actually had close to 800 vicodin,� said Det. Lt. Amado Arceo, team leader of BAYANET. “A lot of this property will be sent to the lab for analysis for court purposes.� BAYANET held a press conference Wednesday and displayed the seized materials. “One of the things that we’re doing when we hold press conferences is to identify to the public some of the problems that are out there,� Anthony said. “And to seek input, seek information, seek tips from anyone that would be willing to give us information so that we can stop this before deaths occur.�

rubble, the pride in the apparent lack of looting or egregious price gouging, and the orderly acceptance of the need to ration water and gas. Time may test that. Authorities have been slow to respond to food and fuel shortages, and the winter weather is miserable. There is widespread grumbling about the broken understanding that the government was ready to handle the aftermath of a severe quake. But in Tagajo, Hiroko Yamamoto said that although she’s not happy with the government’s response, it is not the Japanese way to make a big fuss, or to focus only on your own troubles. On Thursday, she stood in the snow in a coat down to her ankles watching a crane remove wave-battered cars from the scarred parking lot of the compressor manufacturing company she works for. And she was staying put. “As much as I’d love to escape, the group is more important than your own concerns, which follows for most Japanese,� she said. There’s no power or gasoline in Tagajo, a city of 63,000, and Yamamoto doesn’t know if she’ll get paid before business resumes. But she has volunteered to help her company get back on its feet, which she sees as a way to help the whole country. Days earlier, she had already called several clients over patchy phone lines. “Of course it’s our business, but that’s not the main reason,� she said. “These machines will be desperately needed to rebuild the nation.�

He continued saying that OIT is aware that there is no cookie-cutter technology for the classroom and that every instructor at CMU utilizes the technology available differently. “We start (trying new technology) with the people who are most interested, but we have to find out how to hit the ‘easy button,’� Rehm said. OIT technical writer Kole Taylor said he was very excited for the summit because he is excited for the future of technology at CMU. “The whole purpose of this event is to show students, faculty and staff where we are and where we are going,� Taylor said. He added that the summit was designed for both students and faculty so they could not only be informed on the state of technology at CMU, but also participate in it as well. Clinton Township senior Julie Kusnery said the most beneficial aspect of the summit was the presentation on social media. She said she is always careful of what she posts online, but that the presentation was very informative. “I learned a lot of how to build my personal brand, which is one of the most important things to do today,� she said.

Anthony said there has been an influx of heroin throughout the state of Michigan, particularly in the BAYANET investigative area. This is the third significant heroin distributor that has been taken down by BAYANET officers within the last three weeks, he said. For students, Anthony advised to watch out for friends and make sure they do not get involved. If they do, get them some help, he said. “The eventual result is one of two things — death or arrest,� Anthony said. “Nobody goes through life without getting caught or having it catch up to them. We would much prefer to see somebody go through rehab as opposed to arresting them.�

Canton senior Elizabeth Anderson and her boyfriend St. John’s senior Marshall Swanson share a pitcher of green beer together Tuesday afternoon for St. Patrick’s Day at the Bird Bar & Grill, 223 South Main St. “We were already at Marty’s,� Swanson said. “We’re going to end up at O’Kelly’s to watch basketball. That’s the plan.� U-Ride taxi driver Chad Kandaris shared Skillman’s sentiment, saying business was slow as of 2:30 p.m. but he thought it would get a lot busier later in the day. “It’s my first St. Patty’s day today,� he said. “Normally it gets really busy around 11:30 (p.m.), but I expect it to be really busy later.� Kandaris said he had class Thursday afternoon, but was excited to get back on the road and see what type of people end up in his taxi. Ben Breidenstein, a bartender at the Bird Bar & Grill said St. Patrick’s Day is the second-busiest day of the year for the bar, homecoming aside. The Mount Pleasant resident added that while it was slow as of mid-afternoon Thursday, downtown always gets slammed during the holiday. “It’s always off the hook, I love it today,� he said. Breidenstein said that because business on the holiday is so heavy, the day is always full of excitement. CMU Police Chief Bill Yeagley said that excitement called for a larger staff than he would usually have on duty. He said he called in extra personnel just in case there are any issues they may have to deal with. “It’s a pretty big day, students are often indulging in a lot of drinking and that can lead to poor decisions like driving and fights,� Yeagley said. “With

the weather being so nice, we weren’t sure exactly how the day would unfold.� As of 5 p.m. Thursday there had only been one major incident when a student was removed from Anspach Hall

for being obviously drunk. Yeagley said the student had more than double the legal blood alcohol content to drive and was taken to the hospital via ambulance. “We just want to keep everybody safe,� Yeagley said.

Tsunami relief efforts ignite across campus Students gather to coordinate aid for those in Japan By Randi Shaffer Senior Reporter

CMU’s Volunteer Center is helping coordinate relief efforts from students campuswide to help those affected by the recent tsunami in Japan. Elway Pegg, public relations graduate assistant, said the Volunteer Center is working as a resource for students interested in helping with tsunami relief efforts. So far, the Dearborn native said he has seen a

large amount of student, staff and faculty interest in participating in and generating fundraisers. Wixom senior Kelsey Guiliani is one of those students. “If I was living in conditions like that,” she said, “I wish someone would take time out of their day to help me.” Guiliani and several other volunteers will set up tables from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 23 and 24 in the lower level of the Bovee University Center. The tables will feature statement boards, ribbons donated by the Volunteer Center and Japan relief T-shirt order forms. Guiliani hopes to raise $1,000 for the cause.

“She’s the first one to take initiative ... in terms of a fundraiser,” Pegg said. Guiliani has a personal connection to the crisis in Japan. Following her upcoming graduation, she will teach English in Saitama, half an hour northwest of Tokyo. She felt compelled to help the people she will soon be living amongst, she said. Guiliani’s roommate, Birmingham senior Ashley Wasniewski, is one of the volunteers working to enact the fundraiser. Wasniewski’s stepmother is from Japan, and the tsunami has affected her whole family. “(My stepmother’s) sister

had to be evacuated from her home because of the nuclear explosions,” Wasniewski said. “My heart broke for her because she’s devastated and feels very helpless.” Pegg said Guiliani is working as a liaison for the Volunteer Center to coordinate several tsunami relief fundraiser events. “When people do come forth with fundraising ideas ... we can immediately direct them to her and provide her with volunteers for her events,” Pegg said. The Volunteer Center is going to continue coordinating fundraising efforts throughout the next few weeks.

Pegg said the center is working to help connect students interested in starting fundraisers to students interested in volunteering for fundraisers already in place. “It’s really early, so (Volunteer Center-made) fundraisers are still being put together,” Pegg said. All money earned through Volunteer Center fundraisers goes straight to the American Red Cross, which then goes toward Japan relief efforts. Irene Little, Emergency Services program coordinator at the Central Michigan Chapter of the American Red Cross, 215 E. Broadway St., said though the international Red Cross

has not requested any help, local Red Cross units can collect individual monetary donations. “At this point, we’re just kind of sitting by and waiting for the international Red Cross to ask us for some help,” she said. “(We’re) on standby if they need more help.” Little said the international Red Cross made an initial donation of $10 million to the Japanese Red Cross society,and is remaining in close contact with partners in the Pacific region.

Alleged religious d i s c r i m i n at i o n

CMU, universities file support for EMU in case “EMU is a public institution, so they should be non-discriminatory toward all students.” Justin Gawronski, Macomb freshman

Student counselor had refused services to gay client By Ariel Black Senior Reporter

CMU and eight other state public universities have issued support for Eastern Michigan University in a case filed against it for alleged religious discrimination. Julea Ward was an EMU student enrolled in the counseling program and, after refusing counsel to a gay client, the school dismissed her from the program. Ward claimed in her suit her dismissal violated her religious beliefs against homosexuality. EMU reportedly said Ward was dismissed because her refusal to counsel the patient did not follow the assigned curriculum and professional ethics guidelines set up by the American Counseling Association. “EMU is a public institution, so they should be non-discriminatory toward all students,” said Justin Gawronski, SPECTRUM member and a Macomb freshman at CMU. “Since she couldn’t perform that duty as a counselor, she should be at a private institution.” When questioned about why CMU chose to side with EMU, CMU General Counsel Manuel Rupe referred CM Life to the amicus brief filed and University Communications. Director of Public Relations Steve Smith said the amicus brief would answer all questions. The position of EMU has been upheld by Judge

George Steeh of the U.S. District Court in Detroit last July. The district court ruled that Ward “does not have a constitutional right to interfere with the Program curriculum established by EMU by demanding that she be allowed to set her own standards for counseling clients.” State Attorney General Bill Schuette sided with Ward in her appeal to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. He reportedly said she was discriminated against by EMU because her Christian beliefs prohibited her from counseling a gay client. Several religious organizations also have publicly supported Ward with briefs. Calls to the Attorney General’s office were not returned for comment. “Fundamentally, this case raises the question of whether universities have the freedom to determine their own curricula or whether they must fashion their curricular requirements around the religious, political, social, philosophical, and ideological beliefs and expressions of each and every student,” the brief stated. The brief also stated counseling requires a relationship of trust conveying to the client a non judgemental attitude, empathy and understanding. Calls to Grand Valley State, Michigan State and Wayne State universities, which were among the universities to sign the brief in support of EMU, were not returned.

5,000 protest as Snyder signs financial manager legislation By Jordan Spence Staff Reporter

The angry voices of about 5,000 protesters did not stop Gov. Rick Snyder from signing emergency financial manager legislation into law. People rallied Wednesday at the Michigan Capitol in Lansing to protest Snyder’s budget proposal and House Bill 4214, a bill granting increased powers to the position of emergency managers. “I think this is an abuse of the executive branch,” said Clarkston senior Michael Birach. “No government entity should have this much power.” Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer, D-East Lansing, said they did not start

-The Detroit Free Press contributed to this report

the fight going on in Lansing, but they did not plan on losing. Whitmer announced a proposed constitutional amendment to protect collective bargaining. “How can you criticize a teacher who makes $40,000 a year,” Whitmer said, “when you have ... millionaires in your cabinet?” The controversial bill signed by Snyder gives him and state financial authorities the right to appoint financial managers to local governments in a state of emergency. The emergency manager would have the power to eliminate contracts, end bargaining agreements and dissolve local governments.

The union-sponsored rally also provided a forum for some to protest what they feared was an attack on the middle class and its democratic rights. “This isn’t about unions — it’s about all of us,” said Temperance resident Jan Smith.” When you take away people’s voices, that’s not democracy.” Her biggest concern was the effect the cuts to education spending could have on her grandchildren. The next generation’s fate was also on the mind of Livonia resident Derek Pennington, a member of an electrician’s union. “My daughter is going for her teaching degree at CMU and I’m worried for her,” he said. “The most important thing our

government can do is invest in education.” As protesters moved inside the Capitol, signs were prohibited but thousands continued chanting “Who’s house? Our house!” “So far things have gone smoothly and peacefully,” said Sgt. Jeff Hoeld of the Michigan State Police. “They reserved the space through 5:30 tonight. After that they have to leave.” Toward the end of the rally, five people were arrested for refusing to leave the building after it closed. In total, 10 were arrested for trespassing and one for resisting and obstructing an officer.

Arcos Trio treats audiences to 19th century classics Violinist, cellist, pianist performs Tuesday night By Matt Torres Staff Reporter

Listeners were treated to a unique interpretation of classical music by the Arcos Trio Tuesday night. The trio composed of violinist Seunghee Lee, cellist Carl Donakowski and pianist Anthony Padilla performed at the Chamichian Recital Hall in the Music Building. Lee has worked as a music professor specializing in the

violin at CMU since 1993. “It was really good,” said West Bloomfield junior Max Lowe. “It’s great because it’s live music.” Lowe, a student of Lee’s, came to show support for his teacher. He was one of 25 in attendance. Two pieces comprised the recital, the first by Russian composer Anton Arensky and the latter by German composer Robert Schumann. “Everything was flawless,” said Saginaw freshman Jake Webster. “Completely epic, it was really, really cool, and they picked a great selection of music.” Webster, a music major

specializing in cello and bass, watched Padilla and Donakowski perform earlier in the day and said he could not miss the full trio performing together. The group plays before a live audience once a year at CMU. It performs and records pieces of traditional classical literature as well as modern classical and rock ‘n’ roll music. “Our first album was mostly living women composers from the 20th and the 21st century,” Padilla said. “We will be recording our next album and playing those pieces throughout the series of Latin American chamber music festivals.” The group received a grant from the National Endowment

for the Arts to begin its second studio album. The trio came together in 2005 and was once named Artemis, later changing its name to avoid confusion with another group. Donakowski has played the cello since 6 and said his recital performances have been aired on former classical music stations WQRS Detroit and WQXR New York. Padilla is a professor of piano and chamber music at the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music in Appleton, Wisc. and is a nationally certified member of the Music Teachers National Association.

EDITORIAL | Snyder’s approval of House Bill 4214 deserves protest of state citizens

A sickening statute G

ov. Rick Snyder has signed into law an egregious statute that undermines the rights of Michigan’s citizens — something rightfully demonstrated by thousands who protested the move this week. On Wednesday, Snyder signed into law House Bill 4214, which will allow himself and state financial authorities to declare a city, township or other type of local government to be in a financial emergency. Voters loudly protested Snyder’s decision Wednesday as about 5,000 people filled the halls and lobbies of the Michigan State Capitol. They also protested his budget proposal and the anti-union bill.

The protesters reportedly spoke against what they fear is an attack on the middle class and fundamental democratic rights. The language of the law has, without question, stolen power from the people of Michigan to hold the people who govern them accountable, and yet it offers no concrete definitions for what a financial emergency means. At a time when the newly-elected legislature and Snyder should be

100-percent transparent with their decisions, they succeeded in passing a law with vague language that could be misconstrued to serve selfish political ambition in the future. If and when the governor and his bureaucrats decide what constitutes a financial emergency, the law mandates an emergency manager must be chosen to clean up shop in the allegedly stricken region. The emergency manager — who ultimately would not be elected by the constituents of the district in which they would exercise their power — would be solely responsible for the financial condition of that municipality. Intensifying the unconstitutional nature of the law is the right for the executive branch to choose government officials, private citizens or even corporations to be emergency managers. No barriers exist to prevent Snyder

from appointing his confidants from business networks as emergency managers to manipulate a city’s finances for profit. Should the emergency manager fail, it will be the citizens and tax dollars that will feel the loss, not the companies who were given free reign to manage governmental affairs with no responsibility to constituent concerns. Clearly Snyder’s business background has tainted his view of how democracy in the U.S. works and who has the power to control the government — the people — not for-profit corporations. Should Snyder continue to make legislative decisions without fully understanding their implications to the rights of Michigan citizens, he will surely face more vocal and prevalent opposition in the future.

Living with girls more trying than with guys Today I started my countdown to summer vacation. But not for the suntans, lazy days and decent weather. No, I am counting down the days until I can say “sayonara” to roommates. Pairing four people in a room not much bigger than my bathroom at home is one thing; those four people being females is another. I have heard countless phone conversations while walking to class where girls are ferociously complaining about how their roommates ticked them off that morning. This is often followed by coming home to see another girl in my hall switch into a different room for “less drama.” Please, with girls there is no such thing. My freshman year of college brought me more drama than my entire high school career. But I guess that’s what happens when potential roomies are in the hands of CMU’s roommate matchmaking system. But I chose to stick it out, seeing as the only choice I had was to live in the residence halls — with three girls. It’s only a few more weeks, right? Forty-one days, 40, 39 … God help me. First semester was a bit bumpy. But this second semester is more like climbing Mount Everest in a snow storm. The drama that girl roommates can produce from nothing is incredible. It is like a secret weapon they hide and then whip out when everything is going okay. After rounds of slamming doors — the most effective way some people feel to take out their anger — there is still no surrender to the ongoing battle between girls and their petty fights. One of the most popular problems I hear from other girls is being quiet while getting ready in the morning with a sleeping roommate: No, I am not shutting my drawer more loudly on purpose to wake you up. I’d rather you stay asleep, trust me. I wish I could say living in tight quarters with female friends is like a slumber party every day, but let’s not kid ourselves. For the guys, however, it seems like a whole different game plan. A round of “Halo” followed by an episode of “Family Guy” and life is good. The way guys seem to bond over sports, video games and food makes me jealous. The worst thing I could see my guy friends fighting over is who lost the remote control. In the end, I guess I should just be happy I wasn’t paired with a psycho — like the girl in “The Roommate.” After seeing that movie I was actually pretty happy to be living with who I am.

state now eligible for state take over if they can’t cut millions of dollars by June 30th. The district I work for has to find a way to cut $8 million in just over 3 months. Over the past 5 years, we have cut $10 million by closing 4 buildings, taking teacher pay freezes, administrative pay cuts, cutting paraprofessionals, outsourcing busing/janitorial services, and much more. These districts are set up to fail so that the state can take over and eliminate public education.

Contrast Japan’s disaster vs. past hurricanes in this country.

The Japanese people aren’t looting. Aren’t politicizing this. Aren’t blaming the Government. Are helping each other instead of making demands of the Government. Some Americans can learn from the Japanese people. 912 - March 16 Wouldn’t it make more sense to talk with Japanese students who are studying here at CMU about their thoughts/fears than to a few American students and staffers who aren’t really affected by the disaster?

Rebecca Black’s ‘Friday’ an unintentional pop music parody In case you haven’t heard the news yet, it’s Friday. And as we have learned from 13-year-old Rebecca Black’s “Friday” music video, it’s the day that comes before Saturday and Sunday. I literally laughed out loud throughout every second of this pop-trocity, and struggled to decide afterward whether the video was a well-thought out joke or completely legitimate. And to my astonishment, it turns out it’s the latter. Black’s video is a product of Ark Music Factory, a Los Angeles company that basically takes pop-sensation wannabes and attempts to transform them into the next Justin Bieber. The thing is, the song is so good because it’s so incredibly bad. Black’s pronunciation of Friday as “FRY-e-day,” the nonsensical lyrics and the cheesy green screen are the reason the video has generated about 13 million views in just a week’s time. Those viewing the dreadful video are immediately loaded with questions by the time all 3 minutes and 48 seconds of it have passed. Why is Black singing about waiting for a bus when in fact she is being picked up by her friends? Why are underage kids driving around with each other in a convertible? Why is a middle-aged guy, who appears out of nowhere, rapping about cruising past buses? (But hey, at least he’s old enough to drive.) Most importantly, how could someone throw together such a mess and actually consider it of acceptable musical quality? The folks at Ark Music Factory may not have intended it, but the video is a genius parody of modern-day pop music — from the the terrible lyrics to the appearance of a featured hip-hop artist. I actually feel quite bad for Black. There are other videos — and victims — that have been brought on to the Web by the same company, but none have generated the views or the humiliation she has likely faced the past week. Black might even be a decent singer, but the excessive auto-tuning covers up any chance of her showing off her actual voice. In the meantime, I now know where to go when I’m in a bad mood and need a good laugh. So thanks, Rebecca.

Attendees target bullying in Wednesday film showing Student-run presentation first of series By Annie Harrison Staff Reporter

Joshua Hudson said bullying isn’t just a problem for children. The Office of Civil Rights and Institutional Equity put on its first program in a new series called Civil Rights Dialogues. About 40 people attended the student-run presentation Wednesday night to watch a film about bullying and discuss hate crimes. “Bullying is more than just white and black or gay and straight,� said Hudson, a Mount Pleasant senior. “Bullying is a social problem.� The film “Bullied� documented how its subject Jamie Nabozny was verbally and physically harassed for being gay while in middle school and high school in Wisconsin. Nabozny even had to have surgery and spend five days in the hospital after bullies beat him up at school. He became so scared and frustrated that he attempted suicide and ran away from home twice. Eventually Nabozny sued his school district for failing to protect him from anti-gay bullying and discipline the bullies. In a landmark de-

cision, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Nabozny. OCRIE student assistants Hudson and Sparkle Jackson, a Saginaw freshman, facilitated the forum after the film. They said the U.S. has a long history of hate crimes and violence against minority groups, and fighting harassment against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals is a more recent issue. “It’s important to bring light to the bullying in the LGBT community,� Hudson said. “Our youth are taking their lives in droves.� Matt Olovson, assistant director of OCRIE, said he thinks the topic of the program was relevant because there were several stories about bullying in the news last year. “There was a lot of violence in the LGBT community, and unfortunately a lot of suicides because of bullying and violence,� he said. Rochester Hills freshman Hadassah Lomax said it was sad to watch people in the film being bullied. She said she believes there will always be bullies, so people need to spread awareness of violence and discrimination. “It’s up to us to be advocates for change,� she said. “Bullying is still prevalent in college and needs to be addressed.� Flint freshman Charity

Shelley said the program was very informative and she was shocked by the statistics in the presentation. She said she believes the forum was successful at educating students that bullying is a serious problem. “It’s not just, ‘Give me your lunch money,’ anymore,� she said. “It’s things that should never happen.� Hudson and Jackson said 3.2 million, or one in six American children between sixth and 10th grade, experience bullying. Hudson said harassment also exists at the college level. “Just because we’re older doesn’t mean there’s not bullying,� he said. Jackson said bullying has gotten worse because of cyberbullying. She said constant harassment makes victims feel helpless. “There’s nowhere for you to go,� she said. Hudson and Jackson said bystanders enable bullies when they do nothing to stop harassment. “When you witness things, it’s your job to take care of that person,� Hudson said. “At the end of the day, all we have is each other.� Olovson said he hopes students learned from the program that OCRIE is there for students who feel harassed or offended.

Irresponsible energy use, restoring disappearing American Indian cultures and a lack of long-term environmental vision were all touched on by Winona LaDuke when she spoke Tuesday night. LaDuke, a two-time vice presidential candidate, urged her listeners to be aware of their impact on the earth before the harm cannot be undone. An audience of about 270 filled Anspach 161 to hear LaDuke’s presentation, titled “Indigenous Thinking and the Next Economy.� LaDuke shared her experiences as an activist dedicated to protecting the environment and culture of American Indian communities. She is visiting CMU as the Denison Visiting Professor of Native American Studies. “We’re the big consumers,� she said. “We consume more than our share of the biosphere.� LaDuke is the founding director of the White Earth Land Recovery Project, a nonprofit dedicated to restoring the culture of the White Earth Anishinaabeg. She is also the executive director of Honor the Earth and works at the national level to raise public support and funding for native environmental groups. LaDuke was the vice presidential running mate of Ralph Nader on the Green Party ticket in the 1996 and 2000 presidential elections. Human consumption has raised carbon dioxide levels

“Not only do we have a lot of energy consumption, we have a lot of inefficient energy consumption.� Winona LaDuke, two-time vice presidential candidate and caused the Earth’s overall temperature to increase one degree, LaDuke said. She said climate change is a threat to the environment. “The reality is that we have destabilized a lot of things,� LaDuke said. LaDuke said energy waste is a significant issue in the United States. “Not only do we have a lot of energy consumption, we have a lot of inefficient energy consumption,� she said. LaDuke said she helped build a wind turbine on the White Earth reservation to generate power for the community. She likes wind power because it is “power that can be owned by the people,� not corporations, she said. The price and availability of food is also a growing concern, she said. As the price of oil rises, so does the price of food. “There is no long-term security until you address food and energy,� she said.

Charlevoix freshman Raymond Shenoskey said he was most interested to hear LaDuke talk about food security and raising crops. “You don’t have to go to Walmart,� he said. “You can grow your own vegetables.� Mount Pleasant senior Kehli Henry said LaDuke was an inspiring speaker. She said she wanted to attend the presentation because she is an American Indian and has a minor in American Indian studies. “It’s important to have different world viewpoints,� she said. “I think the (American Indian) viewpoint is good to include.� Henry said she agreed that people should reduce the amount of energy they consume. “We waste more energy in the United States than we use,� she said. “Something needs to be changed.�

During the Decades Former student, Juan Zamudio looks back on 40 years By Annie Harrison Staff Reporter

Juan Zamudio has lived, studied, worked and even married at CMU over the course of 40 years. Now CMU’s assistant director of Undergraduate Academic Advising, Zamudio said he was born and raised about 25 miles outside of Padre Island, Texas, before moving with his family to Mount Pleasant. He came to CMU as a freshman in the fall of 1970 when he was recruited by United Migrants for Opportunity Inc. He said UMOI was looking for migrants who were willing to stay in Michigan, and he took the opportunity to advance his education. “Everything great has happened to me here,” he said. Zamudio said a total of 14 migrants were recruited by UMOI — seven men and seven women. One person stood out. He said his wife, Marissa, had also had been recruited by UMOI, and they met at CMU. They were married at St. Mary’s University Parish, 1405 S. Washington St., at the end of their sophomore year. Zamudio said at first, he was unsure what to major in. He said he tried business and sociology classes, but he discovered his true passion when he took an education class. “Bingo, it hit,” he said. “I wanted to be a teacher.” Zamudio said he was the first person in his family to earn a degree from an institution of higher education. He said he now has three: a Bachelor of Science in special education, a master’s degree in guidance counseling and a specialist in education. “I was afforded the opportunity to break the cycle,” he said. Zamudio said just two weeks after graduating in 1978 he began work at CMU. He said he spent a year in Minority Affairs before moving to the Registrar’s Office, in 1979.

Assistant director of Undergraduate Academic Services, Juan Zamudio, a 1978 CMU graduate, has become a staple in the Registrar’s Office where he has worked since 1979. “The most rewarding part is seeing these students graduate,” Zamudio said. “The most disheartening part is telling students they’re not graduating this semester.”

From student to staffer As the assistant director, Zamudio said he does pregraduation audits for students. He said the audits are a “roadmap,” a record of a student’s major or minor and the classes they have taken. Registrar Karen Hutslar has worked with Zamudio for 22 years, saying he is a loyal CMU employee and a great resource of academic information. “He is a walking historical encyclopedia about curricular

issues,” she said. “He studies the bulletin.” Zamudio said he likes meeting a lot of students and talking to them one-on-one. “I actually enjoy speaking to students,” he said. “They make me feel young.” It is gratifying to watch students at commencement, Zamudio said. He said some of the students he has worked with wave and give him a thumbs-up. “The most rewarding part is

To Nominate Do you know someone with a compelling story that needs to be told? We want to know. Please contact seeing these students graduate,” he said. “The most disheartening part is telling students they’re not graduating this semester.” Students seem to be more

organized nowadays, Zamudio said. They are entering CMU more prepared, with a good idea of what they want to do. Zamudio said he has to keep updated on new and changing academic programs so he can advise students and help them graduate on a timely basis. “We have to be on top of that,” he said.

CMU women lose in NIT first round First postseason appearance is short, bittersweet By Matt Thompson Staff Reporter

The Central Michigan women’s basketball team ended its season Thursday night, falling to Illinois State 72-59 at Redbird Arena in Normal, Ill. The loss came in the first round of the Women’s National Invitational Tournament — the Chippewas’ first postseason appearance since 1984, but it didn’t last long. “It’s a step forward; I’m just disappointed,” said CMU coach Sue Guevara during her postgame radio interview. “You can’t have this kind of poor performance in postseason

play and expect to win.” Senior Kaihla Szunko was a bright spot in the game, doing something no other Mid-American Conference player has ever done before. Szunko became the first player in MAC history to record 1,000 rebounds, 1,000 Sue Guevara points and 200 career steals after her second of 11 rebounds Thursday night. She is only the third active NCAA player to do so, along with the University of Connecticut’s Maya Moore and Victoria Dunlap of Texas University. Szunko will finish her CMU career with 1,292 points, 1,009 rebounds and 235 steals. “Our seniors put us here,” Guevara said. “But they disappeared.”

ISU’s guard Jackson Shala scored a gamehigh 19 points. Fifth-year senior Kenyatta Shelton pulled down 14 rebounds and scored 10 points. Nine of those points came in the first half to help build the Redbirds lead. The Chippewas only lead was a 4-3 score in the first, and it only lasted for 54 seconds. ISU (21-10) took advantage of 23 CMU mistakes, scoring 21 points off turnovers. “It’s difficult to score when you give it away like we did,” Guevara said. “I mean, I caught two passes tonight.” Going into halftime, the Chippewas trailed 35-25. Sophomore guard Jalisa Olive kept CMU in the game with 10 points off the bench in the first half on 2-of-4 shooting from 3-point land.

Sophomore Jalisa olive added 10 points off the bench in the first half, shooting 2-4 from behind the arc. This season, she shot .325 from three-point range. Martha Warfel/ Daily Vidette Photo Editor

Trice, Sentes, Bennett sweep matches; Corby alive in consolation bracket By Aaron McMann | Sports Editor


HILADELPHIA — Jarod Trice is well known for his cockiness.

The junior from Highland Park isn’t afraid to let feelings for his opponents known. Even better, he is pretty good at backing it up. But on Thursday at Wells Fargo Center, the 285-pounder found himself close to losing on two separate occasions during the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. “They’re backing up,” Trice said. “Their game plan is to try and throw me off and get me frustrated. I’m going in with the mental mindset that I know what all of my opponents are going to try and do to me.” Trice, who entered the tournament a No. 2 seed, was one of three CMU wrestlers to advance to the quarterfinal round Friday, but it sure didn’t come easy. The 2010 All-American found himself in a 0-0 tie with Virginia Military Institute’s Joshua Wine after the first period in the first round, and trailing 1-0 after the second. An escape in the third tied the score, but Trice was unable to pull off the win in regulation time. The two went to overtime, where Trice dragged a crawling Wine into the circle and recorded a takedown for the win, surviving a first-round scare. “I think Jarod’s pushing the pace in a lot of those matches, he’s just not able to get a takedown,” said CMU head coach Tom Borrelli. “I like the way he’s being aggressive. I don’t think he’s been in danger of losing either match, he just needs to be a little more focused on getting that takedown.” His quarterfinal match, against Indiana’s Ricardo Alcala, proved to be even tougher. After taking a 1-0 lead in the second period, Alcala tied the match with an escape late in the third, sending Trice into his second overtime match of the day.

PHILADELPHIA – Winning your first match at the NCAA tournament is tough. Just ask Donny Corby, the sophomore 149-pounder who received a wild card bid into the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships. Corby began the day Thursday with a 9-0 major decision loss to Kyle Dake of Cornell. “The first match I actually did wrestle a decent match,” Corby said Thursday evening outside the CMU lockerroom at Wells Fargo Center. “It was little things I didn’t capitalize on — I didn’t get an early takedown. It just didn’t go the way I wanted to.” Corby, in his first NCAA tournament appearance, could have folded and entered the wrestleback round — the tournament’s consolation bracket — with little to shoot for. After all, he still has his junior and senior years of eligibility remaining. But he didn’t want to be the only CMU wrestler to make the trip to the City of Brotherly Love and become eliminated after Day 1. In his second match of the day, against Oklahoma’s Matt Lester, Corby made sure that did not happen. He scored a reversal in the second period to take a 2-0 lead, but Lester came up with a reversal of his own to send the match into overtime. There, he took a 3-2 on an escape and was able to hold on for a 5-4 decision. “I went out there and got to my shots a lot, but the guy was scrambling,” Corby said. “It went into overtime, but I felt confident in my conditioning and I got an escape and a quick two." Head coach Tom Borrelli beckoned his performance to the season he had, in which he finished 23-14 overall, including a 15-6 record in tournaments. “Even in that (second) match, he was real close to a lot of takedowns,” Borrelli said. “He kept coming, kept battling. That’s kind of the way he’s been all year.” And, for Corby, that’s just how he likes it. “The first match loss always sucks, but I want to get rolling and get ready for tomorrow,” he said. “It puts a fire under me.” Corby will face No. 10 Kurt Kinser (Indiana) in his second wrestleback match. Even despite a loss, his goal is still intact: To become an All-American. “It obviously was to win it,” Corby said of his goal coming into the tournament. “You always go into it hoping to win. Sometimes you don’t get your first match, but it doesn’t mean I can’t come back. I want to score some points and become an All-American."

Baseball will play four-game series against Missouri Jaksa expects opponent to be ‘tough test’ By Anthony Fenech Senior Reporter

It took a month, but Steve Jaksa is starting to see consistency in the play of his Central Michigan baseball team. “It’s the biggest thing we’ve improved in,” he said on Thursday, as the team traveled by bus to Columbia, Mo., for a weekend series against Missouri. “I know we’re going to play hard,” Jaksa continued. “We’ll continue to do that and keep improving on our consistency from an everyday standpoint.” The improvements have been visible on the scoreboard during a three-game winning streak in which the Chippewas

have limited their errors and, perhaps most importantly, their opponents offensively. “Two of the things Steve Jaksa you can control the most are defense and pitching,” Jaksa said, “and we’re coming around in those areas.” CMU (8-9) opens its fourgame set against the Tigers tonight at Simmons Field. Starting on the mound for the Chippewas will be lefthander Trent Howard, who was recently named MidAmerican Conference West Division Pitcher of the Week. Howard ignited the Chippewas win streak with a two-hit, 10-strikeout shutout of Indiana last week. It was the junior’s second consecutive outing with dou-

CMU to compete at Hoosier Classic Big Ten opponents bring top names into weekend By Matt Thompson Staff Reporter

The Central Michigan softball team is trying to carry the momentum it built during spring break to Bloomington, Ind., for the Hoosier Classic this weekend. The team played "quite well," CMU coach Margo Jonker said, during its past 10 games. “Team focus has been positive, which is one of the key reasons we’ve been successful so far,” she said. The Chippewas have won eight of their last 10 games, but neither Jonker nor her players are getting complacent. “We need to keep playing (CMU) softball, putting pressure on other teams and keep scoring,” said junior Molly Coldren. “We compete in all seven innings and take advantage of other team's mistakes.” Coldren has been a big part of the team's current hot

streak, with five homers and 13 runs batted in, leading the team in both categories. CMU (11-7) will face two Molly Coldren Big Ten teams – Indiana University twice and Michigan State University once – that have some star players. Indiana pitcher Morgan Melloh (8-11), who transferred from Fresno State University for her senior season, has a long resume. At FSU, she tossed 42 shutouts, was one of four NCAA Division I pitchers to throw back-to-back 400strikeout seasons and was named Western Athletic Conference Preseason Pitcher of the Year in 2010. “Supposedly she’s quite successfully,” Jonker said. “I think she has some more speed than we’ve seen, but it’s just as challenging to face a pitcher with less speed because you have to wait on it. It depends on the player.” MSU also has a standout player in senior shortstop Lindsey Hansen, who has hit

ble-digit strikeout totals and the team’s second consecutive week with a pitcher earning conference honors. “We have pitched well,” said Jaksa. “That’s what we’re looking for: everyone throwing well each game over a period of games.” Howard leads the team with a 2.16 ERA and 29 strikeouts. He will be followed in the rotation by Bryce Morrow and Ryan Longstreth in a Saturday doubleheader and junior Zach Cooper on Sunday. Both teams enter the series winners of three out of the last four games. Missouri (7-9) recently took three out of four from LeMoyne College and Jaksa said the Big 12 Conference consistently ranks amongst the best in the country. The Chippewas finished strong in the second half of an eight-game Florida trip over spring break, winning

It doesn’t matter who we play, it doesn’t make a difference what league they’re in,” Jonker said. CMU will start play at 12:15 p.m. Friday against Loyola (8-5) and 2:30 p.m. against Indiana (12-12). “I’m excited to get back outside,” Coldren said. “It’s going to be a great weekend to play, even though it might get cold.” Said Jonker: “I think it’s going to be excellent to compete and go play outside again. It’s huge for us before the conference season starts. We’ll face some good competition.”

Coldren ties home run record Softball team wins four of five in South Florida By Matt Thompson Staff Reporter

Junior Molly Coldren has made it a habit to trot around the bases, but she’s only enjoying them as long as her team is winning. Coldren tied Christina Novak for the Central Michigan softball career home run record by hitting her 19th last week against South Florida. She already broke the singleseason homer record with 11 last year, and one more will give her sole possession of the career record, too. “In my head, I just think line-drive to left-center

(field),” Coldren said. “But if the pitcher puts it in my wheelhouse, I go with it inside.” Coldren has done most of her power damage with screwballs and curveballs, saying, “they’re easier to read and hit.” The records don’t mean as much to Coldren as her team winning, though. “It’s exciting, but in the long run it doesn’t mean anything if we don’t win the (Mid-American Conference),” Coldren said. “It feels good to know I can help my team out. I’m happy we’re winning.” Coldren hit four home runs during last week’s trip to Clearwater, Fla. Her bombs helped CMU win eight of its last 10 games.

“My confidence was up,” Coldren said. “The team is hitting well, it continued onto my bat.” CMU coach Margo Jonker agrees with her power hitter about keeping the team first. “I’m excited for her,” Jonker said, “but honestly, I’ll be more excited when we have some team-records broken. Like wins.” The Chippewas are currently 11-7 heading into the Hoosier Classic this weekend in Bloomington, Ind. The club record for wins was set in 1982 when the team went 51-12 in Jonker’s third year at the school. “Molly has a lot of power,” Jonker said.


Club Hockey ends ACHA run By Justin Hicks Staff Reporter

The Central Michigan club hockey team saw its ACHA National Championship ride come to an end Thursday in San Jose, Calif., after finishing third in Pool C. “We didn’t get the finish that we wanted,” said head coach Michael Willett. “But the nice part is we’ve got 21 guys with more experience and know what it will take next year.” CMU (22-13) opened the tournament with a 6-1 loss to

Miami. Senior Mike Lesnau scored the lone goal for the Chippewas, but goaltender Matt Darr couldn’t stop the flurry of Redhawk shots, giving up six goals on 56 shots. The team rallied back in the second game, knocking off Eastern Washington 5-3 on two goals by senior Jordan Jakubik. Freshman Ricky Jones picked up a pair of assists, keeping the team’s tournament hopes alive. Willett made a change between the pipes in the team’s third game. Zach Silver fin-

ished the game with 37 saves on 43 shots on goal, as the team fell to New Hampshire 6-3. Junior Nick Badder tallied two goals Thursday, and Jakubik scored one of his own in his last game as a Chippewa. “Jordan is a great talent and he lives and breathes hockey,” Willett said. “Another senior, Mike Lesnau, is a playmaker and I’m really going to miss coaching him. The team is going to miss those guys.”

Gymnastics preps to host MAC A look at CMU’s weekend Championship at McGuirk Arena competition at MAC tourney CM Life Staff Reporter Nick Conklin breaks down the Central Michigan gymnastics team’s competition when they host the Mid-American Conference tournament at 2 p.m. Saturday at McGuirk Arena. CMU comes into the weekend as the top seed with a 17-1 record, including a perfect 6-0 against conference opponents. CMU Finished 6-0 in the MAC.

By Nick Conklin Staff Reporter

The Central Michigan gymnastics program will look to repeat as Mid-American Conference champions on Saturday when it hosts the conference tournament at McGuirk Arena. The Chippewas (17-1, 6-0 MAC) will take the floor at 2 p.m. in search of its 12th MAC championship in program history. Junior Kristin Tuebner said the last week of practice in the arena has helped alleviate some of the pressure the team faces entering the weekend as the No. 1 seed. “I think it brings pressure, but it is also kind of a reliever because it’s our equipment and our house,” she said. Head coach Jerry Reighard corroborated that feeling, saying that the coaching staff has accepted the pressures of reality since the ranking was released. For Reighard, the added week in the home arena should also help to benefit his gymnasts with the equipment and placement of things on the floor. “The biggest advantage is that we’re using the equipment and we’re experimenting with all of the logistics of the meet,” Reighard said, “so nothing will be haphazard (during) the day of the competition.” The Chippewas will look to senior Cheryl Conlin and Teubner, who paced the squad the previous weekend in the floor exercise (sea-

son-high 49.225), tying for the top two spots with a score of 9.875. Conlin won the championship in 2010 in the floor exercise with a score of 9.850, while Teubner claimed a championship in 2009 on the same event with a matching score. Senior Andrea de la Garza ended the day with four top-three finishes, including a second-place finish with a 39.150. De la Garza is also in search of her third MAC title, as she won the all-around in 2008 and tied for first in the floor exercise in 2010. Also hoping to return to the podium will be sophomore Britney Taylor, who won the championship last season on the vault with a 9.825. Tough marks from judges is something Reighard said has fol-

lowed his team throughout the season, but he feels with the added scoring scrutiny on Saturday, his team should be more than apt to handle it. With a judging panel consisting of members from Florida, Louisiana, Utah and New England, Reighard said his team will be prepared for any possible differences in marks. “The fact we have been every place and that different judges may have different looks at the way things are done (should be a positive),” he said.

Track & Field

Chippewas use indoor finish as incentive for outdoor season Women’s team looks to reach full strength in events By Kristopher Lodes Staff Reporter

Junior sprinter Dierra Riley and the rest of the Central Michigan women’s track and field team are looking to improve on their seventh place finish and meet their goal of becoming Mid-American Conference champions. The outdoor season will provide opportunities for the women to gain more points and reach full strength in their other events. “We’re going to use the indoor (MAC) championships as motivation,” Riley said. A new season holds a lot of changes in events for the Chippewas. The 60-meter dash and hurdles will be pushed back to 100-meters, the mile run will be replaced by the 10,000-meter run, the weight toss is switched to the discus and the pentathlon is replaced by a heptathlon. Other additions include the 400meter hurdles, the steeplechase, 4x100-meter relay and javelin. “In the outdoors, we add events like the 4x100-meter relay, where our women finished second in the conference last

season, so we are solid there,” said track and field director Willie Randolph. Along with Riley, seniors Brittnee Shreve, Jordan Dunn and Shanaye Carr make up the relay team, all returning from the 2010 season. “We have some really talented freshmen who were specifically recruited for those new events,” Randolph said. “We have a lot of events that will make us stronger as a team, but that doesn’t make us different from any other team, unless were not focused to get things done.” Randolph continues to preach focus to his team like he did during the indoor season, and again its goals remain the same: To win the MAC and get their athletes to NCAA championships. “Our goals are always to win a MAC championship, get as many athletes to compete in regionals and nationals as possible and that every athlete experiences a great deal of positive collegiate,” Randolph said. “Our expectations are still very high.” Randolph said the outdoor season is preferable for track and field, as it is much easier to run outside than it is inside, but it comes with one big disadvantage — the uncontrollable weather. Being in Michigan, he said you never know when

you’ll be training inside or outside. “The weather is going to be hot some days, cold and rainy on other days and, in Michigan, you’re going to get what you’re going to get and we need to be prepared,” he said. “We have a schedule that allows us to see nice weather and then we will come back for our home meet in May.” CMU starts its season next weekend at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn., and one key athlete the women will be missing is distance runner Raeanne Lohner, the CMU record holder in the 10,000-meter. “Raeanne is adjusting well right now,” Randolph said. “She has been doing really well with her rehab. She isn’t where she wants to be running, but she’s going in the right direction.” While Lohner is out, the women can make up points with a solid group of distance runners, including seniors Danielle Dakroub and Brittany Dixon, junior Holly Anderson and sophomore Maddie Ribant. The women finished fourth last year in the outdoor season and hope to make a strong run for first place place in the conference, which would be their first outdoor title since 2004.

Senior Jackson Shala scored nine of the first 13 Redbird points of the second half, helping them go up 48-32 with 13 minutes remaining. CMU never pulled within double digits from that point on. Other Chippewas seniors playing their last game got involved. Forward Brandie Baker scored nine points with eight rebounds, while guard Shonda Long scored 13. Szunko will go down in the Chippewa record books in the top 10 for points, rebounds, steals and blocked shots in her career. “They’ll be remembered as the class that got us to postseason play for the first time in 27 years,” Guevara said.

games on four different channels and it didn’t matter what game you watched because they all had excitement. One of the most exciting games of the day was between No. 8 Butler and No. 9 Old Dominion. Butler, who was the runner-up last season, beat the Monarchs 60-58 after with a tip-in from senior Matt Howard at the buzzer. We saw the first major upset

when No. 13 Morehead State beat No. 4 Louisville 62-61. Senior Delmonte Harper of Morehead State hit a 3-pointer with three seconds left and Louisville had its last attempt blocked. No. 7 Temple and No. 10 Penn State battled. Temple’s Juan Fernandez banked in an 18-foot shot to put the Owls up 66-64 and beat the Big Ten runner-ups.

The 13-seed Princeton Tigers gave all No. 4 Kentucky could handle, but the fourthseeded Wildcats held off the Tigers 59-57 with freshmen Brandon Knight’s only bucket of the game coming at a perfect time. Another upset came from the 12-seeded Richmond Spiders against No. 5-seeded Vanderbilt 69-66. Richmond’s Kevin Anderson hit the game

Kansas State holds off Utah State By Kellis Robinett MCT Campus

TUCSON, Ariz. _ The game never lived up to the hype. Kansas State wouldn’t allow it to. Despite playing in the only opening-round game of the NCAA Tournament that featured two ranked teams, the fifth-seeded Wildcats took control early against No. 12 seed Utah State and won, 73-68, on Thursday night at the McKale Center. It was exactly the night KState was hoping for. With top scorer and senior Jacob Pullen still showing some signs of discomfort after sitting out Wednesday’s practices because of an illness, the Wildcats didn’t want to overwork him. He started the game and led the Wildcats with 22 points, but he received plenty of help from his teammates and was never leaned on in a crucial situation. He seemed as happy as anyone else on the roster walking off the court. Curtis Kelly, Jordan Henriquez-Roberts and Shane Southwell provided the most assistance. The three defended well throughout the game, and forced Utah State into committing more fouls than it is accustomed to. By committing several charging fouls in the first half, the Aggies had no choice but to sit Tai Wesley, their top big man, for nine minutes before halftime.
