LCME notes six areas needed for CMED improvement By David Oltean Senior Reporter
The Liaison Committee on Medical Education’s preliminary accreditation report for Central Michigan University’s College of Medicine highlights several areas that require improvement for compliance with medical school standards. The report, sent Feb. 24 to University President George Ross, counts three areas of strength, six areas of “insufficient prog-
ress toward compliance” and 10 areas in “compliance, with monitoring” after the evaluation of an ad hoc survey team. The Dr. Ernest Yoder LCME evaluation will also require CMED officials to submit three followup reports throughout 2012 on areas of insufficient progress or areas in need of monitoring.
Areas of insufficient progress toward compliance include a lack of detailed plans for medical students’ research plans, a need for a finalized operational plan for assessing medical students’ progress with educational objectives, a need for a better method of evaluating the learning environment, a need for improvement on the standards of conduct for faculty and students and a lack of instructional faculty. The Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medi-
cine, which received preliminary accreditation from LCME in February of 2010, had no “areas of insufficient progress toward compliance” in accordance with accreditation standards. The school was also evaluated to have six areas of strength: twice the amount given to CMED. Dr. Ernest Yoder, CMED founding dean, said the continued work toward fulfilling LCME’s standards will help to ensure the first CMU medical students will receive a proper education.
“This is the LCME validating for us the areas of focus. They’re helping to guide us in the timing of certain aspects of work and preparation we are doing for greeting our first class of students,” Yoder said. “They are an accrediting body that actually works along with the schools in assuring that the students will get what they should get when they come to the school. They’re a guiding partner in a way.” A LCME | 2

SGA forms review committee in response to bylaws allegations By Ryan Fitzmaurice Staff Reporter
Some Student Government Association senators are crying foul about new leadership playing fast and loose with the organization’s bylaws. SGA Treasurer Antonio Grettenberger will form a review committee in response to formal complaints about Senate appointments and executive council actions in the first week of Justin Gawronski and Anna Dvorak’s administration. According to the complaints, the elections in the Senate were in violation of Bylaw Article II Section 1, which in part states, “A Senate seat that becomes vacant shall be filled by the General Board.” By moving forward on Senate appointments without the General Board, the complaints allege the Gawronski administration has effectively negated the House. The review committee, will, according to the SGA Bylaw Article V Section 5, have the power to interpret the constitution and bylaws of the SGA and review the constitutionality of recent actions taken by SGA President Gawronski and Vice President Dvorak. Review committees can only be formed after the submission of three formal written complaints by members of the SGA. The committee would normally be composed of the treasurer, two senators and two House representatives randomly chosen by the House and a representative of the Office of Student Life. Grettenberger, a Lansing senior, said he will abstain from taking part in the committee because of personal bias toward the administration. The complaints were made by SGA senators Whitney Smith, a Northville senior, William Joseph, a Brighton junior, and House Representative Nick Kastros, a Saginaw senior. They submitted the complaints to Grettenberger, in regard to seven new senators assigned by the Senate Monday night. Those candidates, approved by majority vote by the Senate, have yet to be confirmed by the General Board, composed of the Senate, the House and the Executive branch.

good eats Food taster brings more than 200 to UC Thursday By Melissa Beauchamp | Senior Reporter
Asian Pacific American heritage was celebrated Thursday evening with the help of traditional cuisine and Indian dance. More than 200 people attended a food taster in the Bovee University Center Rotunda to honor Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and absorb the culture. The month of May has been considered Asian Pacific American Heritage Month since 1990, but the university honors it in March because school is not in full session in May. Asian Thai soup, rice, vegetables, steamed dumplings and Indian coconut cookies were served by Classic Fair Catering. The Multicultural Academic Student Services organized the food taster, one of three held annually in honor of each ethnic month. Assistant Director of Multicultural Academic Student Services Keisha Janney said planning goes into the food taster months in advance. “The students recommend recipes that we give to a catering company,” she said. Janney said the $3 cost for
students covers the cost of the food. “People enjoy food,” she said. “And it’s just fun to taste.” Lansing senior Tony Vang, president of the Asian Cultural Organization, said there was a line at the door at 4:50 p.m. “It’s a good turnout,” he said. Graduate Assistant for the Multicultural Academic Student Services Amber Johnson said the event is an opportunity for individuals of different eth-

nicities and cultures to explore and experience different food outside of their culture. “It’s the ability to participate in another culture’s culture,” she said. A table of six sat eating with chopsticks and enjoying each other’s company. Before the event, they were all strangers. “The chopsticks make it really hard to eat,” said Lansing senior Nichole Humes. She said China Garden is
about as fancy as she gets when it comes to ethnic cuisine, so the event was a way to broaden her taste buds. The only complaint, she said, is the plates were small. “You can’t fit as much on there as you would like,” she said. Allen Park senior Patrick Kaneko said his dad is Asian, so he is familiar with traditional Asian cuisine. A FOOD | 2
The potential senators will stand for confirmation by a process of individual majority vote by the General Board. The three complaints also address the appointments of Hesperia senior Killian Richeson as elections director and Grosse Pointe junior Anthony J. Smith as membership director. The complaints also address recent appointments made by the Gawronski administration to fill the elections director and memberships director positions. Both the elections director and the membership director are e-council positions, which require a campus-wide application process per the Bylaw Article V Sections 7 and 9. According to the complaints addressed to the SGA, the Gawronski administration failed to execute a campus-wide application process, which they claim is evident by the appointment of Smith and Richeson 45 minutes after the administration came into power. Joseph, one of the senators to issue a complaint, said he feels the appointment of the new e-council positions was troubling, because it did not give an equal chance for the entire student body to gain the positions. “How can you claim to have a campus-wide application process and elect somebody to an e-council position within 45 minutes?” Joseph asked. “It doesn’t make any sense, and it is unfair.” Grettenberger said Monday night’s Senate appointments also denied students a voice in the process. “Students deserve to have an election process that is fair,” he said. “Instead, what has happened is that Justin and Anna have interpreted the constitution to their own favor, and have picked students out of their own values and not out of any judgement of merit.” If the review committee finds either the appointments to the e-council or the elections unconstitutional, the committee can strike them both as void and call for elections or new appointments to fill the seven seats and two positions.

His House changes venue for worshipping to Wayside for one night By Hailee sattavara Senior Reporter

Sanford sophomore Adam Alderton of His House performs on stage during Worship at Wayside, Thursday evening at Wayside Central, 2000 S. Mission St.
Speakers at Wayside Central were booming Christian tunes on Thursday night. His House service was not located in Warriner Hall’s Plachta Auditorium as usual, but on the stages and inside cages of Wayside Central, 2000 S. Mission St. More than 350 gathered to worship God. Campus minister Scott Crary said he saw new people at the Wayside Thursday night. “There are many people who will never come to a church
building, but they might check it out at the Wayside,” Crary said. “A lot of students come to the Wayside.” Crary said the mission of His House is to help students become close to God. Northville freshman Lindsey Fox said she would prefer service at the church at His House Christian Fellowship, 221 W. Broomfield Road. “This is more convenient, but it gives me a weird vibe,” Fox said. Bartender Danny Smith said he hopes worshippers of His House will come back in the future.
“It’s a great crowd, great music; can’t go wrong with that,” Smith said. Smith said alcohol was still available for purchase during the service. The regular Thursday night Wayside crowd did not interfere with the service, as doors opened early for the His House service. Wayside Central typically opens at 9 p.m. Thursday nights. “It’s an awesome opportunity to be with God. He opened up the right doors for us to worship with him tonight,” said Warren junior Aaron McCord. “God loves

us and wants us to love him.” McCord said he would absolutely come back to Wayside Central to worship with His House in the future. Knott said he was glad everyone was invited to worship with His House and wanted to thank the Wayside for making the opportunity possible. “Throughout this week people asked me why worship was at the Wayside, and I didn’t know what to tell them at first,” said Rockford sophomore Cody Knott. email@example.com

“The food is great,” he said. India graduate assistant Mobeen Shaik, a member of the Indian Student Association, was in traditional dress to perform in front of the crowd. The group of two men and two women wore brightly-colored dress with a headpiece. Barefoot, they danced to their culture’s rhythm. “The dress is a traditional Indian costume,” he said. The dancers invited the crowd to learn the dance and about six people decided to give it a shot. email@example.com

Gawronski and Dvorak both said all of the appointments were constitutional and gave equal opportunity to the student body. Gawronski, a Macomb junior, said the e-council appointments were not influenced by any personal bias, and his selection of Richeson who he ran against for the position of SGA president shows his lack of bias. “Every appointment that has been made has been based on merit and merit alone,” Gawronski said, pointing out he did hold a campus-wide application process for the e-council positions and that how the process was carried out is up to his interpretation. He said the Senators were only nominated by the Senate, and will be put up for confirmation Monday by the General Board, in order to conform with the SGA’s constitution. Gawronski said provisions in the constitution are by no means strict rules to dictate every action. “What is written in the constitution are guidelines, and they are somewhat vague,” Gawronski said. He said a similar appointment process has been used in the past

The three areas of strength for CMED, according to the LCME evaluation, include an acceptable “structure for planning and implementation of a regional approach to graduate medical education,” “the fact that the College of Medicine engaged members of the regional community in the creation of its mission” and “the university’s extensive experience with distance learning and multiple delivery methods for instruction.” The first two reports required by LCME will need to update the status of areas of insufficient progress toward accreditation and areas in need of monitoring, including student procedures, student assessment, bylaws, program objectives, standards of conduct,
[News] and is nothing new to SGA. “I myself was elected as a senator this way,” Gawronski said. Grettenberger said viewing the constitution as guidelines is inaccurate. “That’s absurd,” Gretternburger said. “The constitution is not mere guidelines ... and it can’t be if the SGA wants to consistently represent the students.” Gawronski and Dvorak will form two SGA committees to address the complaints. The first is a constitution and bylaws committee, which will review the constitution and deem if any changes should be made. The second is an ad-hoc committee which will address student concerns outside of constitutional issues. Both committees will be chaired by Dvorak and composed of representatives from both the Senate appointed by her and members of the house appointed by the Speaker of the House, Westland junior Patrick O’Connor. Dvorak, an Alma senior, said both committees will be fair and neutral, and will not interfere with the review committee. “The students have elected us as their representatives,” Dvorak said. “They should trust that we will be impartial.”

sufficient faculty and student research opportunities must be sent by April 15 and Aug. 15. The final report, which must update the state of medical school finances, medical student debt and the structure of the longitudinal care clerkship, is due by Dec. 15. Yoder said the required reports due in April, August and December will help maintain conversation between LCME and CMED and bring the evaluated areas into compliance with medical school standards. “If they have additional questions, then they would generate those for us and if they wanted anything additional besides what we sent in the reports, they would ask for that,” Yoder said. “It is an ongoing conversation between the college and the LCME.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Pedal for hope Pi Kappa Phi raises $360 for charity By Anna McNeill | Staff Reporter
Three Pi Kappa Phi members tackled the physically and mentally demanding task of riding a stationary bicycle for 24 hours to raise money for a charity trip this summer. The members of the social fraternity “rode” from noon Wednesday to Thursday in front of the Bovee University Center, raising $360 for their trip this summer while also raising awareness on campus about those with physical and mental disabilities. Their cross-country trip will be a part of the organization Journey of Hope’s annual nationwide summer disability awareness campaign. As the hot sun shown down on the two stationary bikes, with temperatures reaching 87 degrees, the brothers took turns riding one bike for two-hour intervals (in total each Pi Kappa Phi member would ride eight hours). The other bike was used by anyone who wanted to sign up and ride for half-hour intervals to help the guys along their stationary journey. About 12 students signed up from multiple different organizations to ride along with them, said Pi Kappa Phi member and Farmington Hills senior Spencer Haworth as he peddled his way toward the end of his first two hours on the bike. Peddling along beside Haworth was Kaleva graduate student Breanna Knudsen. “I signed up to support my friend Spencer,” Knudsen said. “To help him raise awareness about people with physical and mental disabilities, to help him raise the money he needs for his trip
with Journey of Hope, and to get a workout and some sun. Everyone wins.” Despite the weather and exhaustion, the bike was successfully manned for the full 24 hours. One of the volunteer riders, who was in favor of the steamy weather, was the woman who donated both stationary bikes to the Pi Kappa Phi brothers’ event. Skybox studio owner Heather Mills said while peddling with a smile on her face, “(The weather) could be worse; it could be windy, raining or even snowing.” The hot weather didn’t de-
The School of Broadcasting and Cinematic Arts has drafted its own resolution of no confidence in the university administration, targeting University President George Ross, Provost Gary Shapiro and the Central Michigan University Board of Trustees. The resolution, passed by the school during a March 13 department meeting, cites a lack of public notice on university projects, inadequate representation by the president and provost, and injurious financial and academic implications for CMU. The resolution brings the total number of academic departments to vote no confidence in university administration to 17, along with the Council of Chairs and CMU’s librarians. Members of the department read over the Academic Senate’s original vote of no confidence in Ross and Shapiro before member Patty Williamson proposed a new resolution. Unlike the A-Senate resolution, the department’s motion included the CMU Board Trustees. “The School of Broadcast and Cinematic Arts expresses its deep concern about the lack of public notice or

ter any participants from riding alongside of the Pi Kappa Phi guys and sweating it out with them. “I got an email and thought that this was a very different event, but that it would be a great thing to do, so I showed it to my registered student organizaion, the Dogma Free Society, and they thought we should sign up,” said Lenox sophomore Ashley Robinson as she waited for her turn on the stationary bike. Five members of Dogma Free Society signed up to ride. Passersby were asked by the riders if they would like
to donate and that even small change was a big help. “We have gotten a few 20’s,” Haworth said. “We even had a guy come out and ask what we were doing, and after we told him, he pulled out his wallet.” Haworth said continuously riding for the duration in such unseasonably hot spring weather was “really intense,” but worth every minute. “My legs are fine; it’s my butt that’s killing me,” Haworth said, laughing after his first two hours. email@example.com
Donations made to the ninth annual University Campaign have been counted and although the money raised didn’t set a record, the number of donors involved did. A total of 1,033 donors gave $1,008,498 during the campaign, which began the first week of November and ended Feb. 24. Donors included faculty members, staff and retired employees of Central Michigan University. The previous record for donors was set in 2011 when 1,030 people gave and raised $1,233,927. Bryan Griffin, director of annual giving, said the campaign has seen steady growth since 2007, when 960 donors gave a total of $680,528. “Since 2007, we made it easier to donate online. This year, over 50 percent of donations
were made via the Internet,” Griffin said. “It’s been a really good growth pattern for us and this just goes to show the amount of generous people we have on campus.” This is the second year in a row the campaign has raised more than $1 million, and Vice President of Development and External Relations Kathy Wilbur said there are a few factors that contributed to the high numbers. “We’ve certainly used more social media this year than ever before, and the time frame was a little bit longer, which may have helped as well,” Wilbur said. “The fact that the Michigan economy is experiencing a rebound is helpful as well. Additionally, people are becoming more and more comfortable gifting to the university through online means.”

Clarke Historical Library is home to $40 million children’s book collection By Justin Hicks Staff Reporter
Famous novelist C.S. Lewis once said: “I write for children because a children’s story is the best art form for saying what I have to say.” Children’s literature is of extreme importance for students because it’s where reading and learning about culture begins, said Anne Alton, a Central Michigan University English language and literature professor with a graduate degree in children’s literature. CMU is home to the Clarke Historical Library, which houses a collection of antique kids books worth an estimated $40 million. It increases in value by an estimated $1 to $1.5 million each year, said Frank Boles, director of the Clarke Historical Library. “The funny thing about the monetary value is whether the book is a collectable or not, which depends on the eye of the beholder,” Boles said. “Some are worth $20, but are irreplaceable, while others we could buy another for $5,000-$6,000.” The collection originally belonged to CMU alumnus Norman E. Clarke Sr. Clarke signed an agreement in 1954 to donate his book collection. Originally, it was of first-
edition Mark Twain books. After completing his collection, he moved on to books about Michigan’s history and the old northwest. After his first wife Lucile Clarke passed away, Clarke began collecting children’s books, and in 1971 he donated the collection to CMU in Lucile’s name. Boles said Clarke Historical Library ranks as one of the finest collections in the state in Michigan history material, children’s books and Michigan fiction. Some pieces of the collection are bought, while others are donated. On average, the library spends $30,000 to $40,000 each year in direct acquisitions, on top of an additional $20,000 to $30,000 in gifts. The evolution of children’s books began with Bible stories and verses from Sunday schools in the early 19th century, Boles said. “From there, they decided to add pictures and then add a little color to those pictures,” he said. “You could see children’s lit developing in pre-Civil War literature.” By the end of the 19th century, children’s literature had migrated away from the church to stories based on good morals. “It’s interesting to see the change in children’s books in re-
lation to the world,” Boles said. “Having the collection gives students who are interested in these areas a rich resource to use.” Alton brings her children’s literature classes to visit the library each semester to become acquainted with the contents, and they end up using it for projects throughout the course. “I show them some of the treasures, though there’s too many to show all of them,” she said. “I show them some of the highlights of the collections and they have to go back for projects in the semester.” Clinton Township senior Sam Randolph said the library is a great resource as an English student studying about children’s literature. “It’s the first literature we’re introduced to as kids and is important for us to understand,” she said. “The library has a wide selection with a variety of authors, reading levels and genres.” Randolph completed a project in which she needed to pick a children’s book and present it based on its writing, artwork, message and effect on the reader. Her choice was Andrew Pelletier’s “Toy Farmer,” which can be found in the collection. Other pieces in the collection include “The Speaking Picture Book,” from 1880, which made

Unfair treatment S
no surprise. His dad, head coach Ernie Zeigler, was no longer leading the CMU basketball program, effectively eliminating his only reason for staying put and playing ball in Mount Pleasant. But the decision to grant Trey alone on the team the opportunity to look at other schools is concerning. Jason Kaufman, director of communications for the athletics department, told Central Michigan Life Tuesday that others — Austin McBroom, Derek Jackson and Austin Keel are also expected to transfer once the semester ends — will have to wait until CMU finds a new coaching staff. This is blatantly unfair. The embarrassing men’s basketball season is over. Players aren’t expected to be in prac-
ince day one, Trey Zeigler received special treatment.
He signed a National Letter of Intent to attend and play basketball for Central Michigan University in front of media, friends and the community, and announced it on national television. He was the poster boy, expected to take the men’s basketball team out of the rut that has plagued the program for the last 30 years. And rightfully so. The athletics department was losing its national recognition with former-
quarterback Dan Lefevour leaving for the NFL, and it needed a new champion. Zeigler, a Mount Pleasant High School graduate, was highly recruited by top-tier schools with basketball programs miles ahead of CMU. He was set to be the change of culture on a basketball team that had seen its struggles. When news of his request to transfer came out Tuesday morning, it was
tice anymore and with the firing of Ernie Zeigler, the players have no leader to look toward. There is no reason to force some players to stay while letting others fly the coop. Why play favorites for the former-coach’s son? Athletics may have forgotten that basketball is a team sport. But that doesn’t change the fact that the Chippewas were meant to be unified, whether in victory or defeat. Trey’s teammates are supposed to wait while the coach’s son crisscrosses the nation, visiting Duke this weekend, and reportedly considering Michigan, Michigan State, UCLA and Pittsburgh. Trey should not be given special consideration. He already proved he was not special on the court.

Fight for women’s rights starts here As a young woman, college student and activist I see my rights being withered away on a daily basis. Men are gathering every day in local, state and national capitals to further corrode women’s rights. Every day, I see women being subjected to a substandard life because of rules of politically empowered men who seek control over our lives and bodies. The fight for women’s rights is closer than we think. Recently I was walking through Barnes residence hall’s first floor community bath section. I always look at what posters or signs RAs and MAs put up, but today, I found myself gazing upon a deeply disturbing “sign of wisdom.” The first statements were “10 Arguments for Abortion” and “10 Arguments Against Abortion.” Immediately, I was perturbed by the wording because no one is “pro-abortion” in a sense that a woman ever wants or wishes for an abortion. Abortion is not legal because women want one like candy out of a vending machine, they need legal access to abortion because one in three women will experience a legal abortion in their lifetime. Another statement was the following: “Those who choose abortions are often minors or young women with insufficient life experience to fully understand what they are doing. Many have lifelong regrets afterwards.” According to the Guttmacher Institute, only 18 percent of teen women receive an abortion. Women in their 20s make up half of women who get an abortion. Sixty-one percent of all abortions are obtained by women who already have one or more children. Surely, children are an “insufficient” life experience. There was more incorrect, disturbing information. The “Arguments against Abortion” column cited a relationship between abortion funding and tax dollars. This is false. The Hyde Amendment bans public funding of abortion. Tax dollars do not fund abortions. Coming across this poster in the men’s community bathroom section was extraordinarily disturbing. Why? Because a man will never bodily experience an unwanted pregnancy. A man will never have to feel chastised for being an unwed mother or a woman who made a decision to terminate a pregnancy. The fact that this was in an all-male corridor with incorrect data leads to the men we see in politics today. To provide privileged students, especially males, with falsified statements is a recipe for disaster for women’s reproductive rights. This column is not about changing informed, thought-out opinions about abortion. I encourage opinions; but when opinions blend with propaganda at the hands of individuals charged with nurturing ethical and social growth in students, that is where I believe the trouble begins.
[your voice] Comment in response to “Rick Snyder, Kevin Cotter quiet on votes against CMU administration” Guest Of course they are quiet. Outside of the campus community, this isn’t news... The fact that faculty members (the same ones that were in a bitter contract dispute) are now holding a grudge because they don’t feel like they were treated fairly and/ or do not like the decisions of administration. Now there are rumblings of a potential vote of no confidence against the B.O.T... Seriously... I really do not understand how out of touch with reality some in the world of academia can be. First off, it is frustrating to see how faculty believe they “run” the University. If you didn’t get the memo, simply look at article 3, section 1 of your FA contract. All management rights and control of how University funds are
Comments in response to “Ross to testify at higher education budget meeting in Lansing next week” Chip Any citizen can show up, fill out a testimony card and speak right after the CMU president by law. I encourage everyone concerned about CMU to do this. Michmediaperson Dear Lansing---We need to email these legislators and tell them what’s going on at CMU, mainly the $10 million payment to the Events Cen-
ter, the Medical School waste of money, the big pay raises per the Detroit Free-Press last year and the lack of transparency of Warriner Hall and the Granholm-appointed board. George won’t have his Granholmappointed board members asking questions and providing cheerleading. It would be great if Friday or Monday CM LIFE wrote an editorial summarizing the past 12 months so lawmakers can ask the tough questions. We can then all email to these legislators. I would think the $10 million dollars to the Events Center, the waste of money of the Med School, the huge pay raises for administrators, per the Detroit Free-Press and the lack of transparency by the Granholmappointed board and administrators would top the editorial. If we don’t make a stand here, then they will keep on going.
Bounty systems hurt football integrity
John Irwin Senior Reporter It turns out the only people who can keep Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow from being the lead stories on SportsCenter are New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. It’s been a colossal couple of days in the world of football. Manning, perhaps the most coveted free agent in the history of professional sports, ended up signing with John Elway’s Broncos on Tuesday, bringing an abrupt end to Tebowmania in Denver. Tebow was quickly traded Wednesday to the New York Jets for a couple of draft picks. Those two stories alone would make for a huge couple days in sports, but the suspension of Payton and others involved in a bounty scandal trumps them both and will have a long-lasting

impact on the league. From 2009 to 2011, Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams ran a bounty system in New Orleans, paying players to knock high-profile players out of games by injuring them. Everyone from Payton to Saints general manager Mickey Loomis was aware of this, but no one took action. Williams was suspended indefinitely and may never coach in the NFL again. Payton, one of the best coaches in football, was suspended for a whole season without pay. Loomis was suspended for eight games without pay. The organization was fined $500,000 and had to forfeit two second-round draft picks. Wednesday’s suspensions and fines sent shockwaves throughout the NFL, just as Goodell intended. He is sending a message that this type of behavior, which undoubtedly occurs within other organizations, will not be tolerated. “When there is targeting of players for injury and cash rewards over a three-year period, the involvement of the coaching staff, and three years of denials and willful disrespect of the rules, a strong and lasting message must be sent that such conduct
is totally unacceptable and has no place in the game,” Goodell said in a statement. Goodell has been criticized for making the NFL soft by protecting quarterbacks and other high-profile players too much. Much of that criticism is deserved, but it’s hard to criticize Goodell for this decision. Injuries are a part of football. So are big hits. There is nothing more exciting than watching a defensive player lay a huge hit on an opposing player, especially if he plays on a rival team or is a player everyone hates (*cough*Brett Favre*cough*). Players should make those hits to turn the tide of the game, keep the opposing offense from moving and provide a boost to the team. The motivation shouldn’t be to purely hurt the other player to make some money. Not only is that dirty football, but it undermines the integrity of the game. It’s no longer about doing your part to help the team win. It’s about making some money for yourself. Playing tough is much different than playing dirty. Players and coaches at the professional level, especially those in Goodell’s safetyfirst NFL, should know this.

Sometimes I question the justice system in this supposed “land of the free.” I am sure many of us have heard about the case of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old black teenager who never would have thought a trip to a convenience store would end his life. Martin was gunned down by neighbor George Zimmerman. What sickens me most about this case is not only the fact that racial malicious intent seemed to be Zimmerman’s motive, but also the fact that our justice system in this country can be so horribly wrong. Since when do citizens have to sign a petition to get justice for an innocent young teen who has never done anything to anyone. I am outraged at our justice system for forcing U.S citizens to sign a petition for something to be done about murder, and at the same time I applaud those who are disgusted by this crime of hate to the point of taking action. Hate crimes are sad in that lives are lost, but also because it shows a lack of progress in the minds of many people. Zimmerman’s cruel instincts are the things that set us back years. In another hate crime, I am sure many have heard of the Dharun Ravi verdict. Ravi was recently found guilty on mostly all of the charges brought against him after spying on his homosexual roommate Tyler Clementi. Clementi committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington bridge after Ravi spied on him using a web-cam. Ravi’s whole goal in spying on Clementi was to catch him in a homosexual act. For this crime, Ravi could be sentenced for up to 10 years in prison and also deported back to India. Ravi, your actions were undoubtedly driven by a negative feeling for homosexuals and you should be punished to the full extent of the law. His actions were obviously homophobic and although he may not have meant for Clementi to commit suicide, it is important for him to realize that his ignorant actions drove his roommate to become so distraught. I would sort of expect the type of ridiculous homophobic behavior Ravi displayed from a high school student, but a college student? Aren’t we as college students supposed to be the new age of acceptance, knowledge and open-mindedness? Sadly not all of us are as progressive as we would like to believe and Ravi is a prime example. I have never heard of an act so immature. Just as Ravi should suffer the full consequences of his stupid unnecessary actions, Zimmerman should face life in prison without the chance of parole. We are talking about two young lives here lost as the result of pure hate and intolerance. Why can’t a homosexual be who they are without worrying about their roommates spying on them? There are gay people in this world; get over it! Zimmerman may have claimed self-defense, but how can you claim self defense against an unarmed seventeen-year-old boy? Hate crimes are train wrecks that ruin the lives of many people, it is proof that we do indeed live in a cold world.

Downtown Summer Concert Series to feature returning, new artists By Melissa Beauchamp Senior Reporter
Familiar and new faces will perform this year at the fourth annual Max & Emily’s Summer Concert Series. Brian Vander Ark will return and perform on June 7 along with his band, The Verve Pipe at the 125 E. Broadway St. location. The Ragbirds are returning and set are to perform July 19. However, Jeff Daniels will not be returning this year, and the series will close Aug. 25 with a performance by Howie Day, who has never before performed as part of the series. Max & Emily’s Owner Tim Brockman said families, students and all ages should bring lawn chairs and enjoy food while listening to the concerts. “It’s a great atmosphere,” he said. “It’s good, clean entertainment. We haven’t disappointed anyone.” The idea of the Summer Concert Series started in the fall of 2008 when local musician Monique Berry asked to perform for a family reunion at Max &Emily’s. Brockman and General Manager Chris Walton both thought it could become something bigger and worked with the city to shut down the street. The show was a success, Brockman said, with more than 750 in attendance for the live show. Shortly after, 750 people turned into more than 3,200 people last summer lining the streets of downtown Mount Pleasant to

hear bands perform. Brockman said he would like to continue to put on the Summer Concert Series as long as people keep coming and the sponsors keep supporting. In 2009, Isabella Bank and Downtown Mount Pleasant became sponsors with Max & Emily’s, and in 2011 Central Michigan University became a sponsor. Brockman said with the unstable economy, people don’t have the finances to go on vacation. “One of the reasons we are doing it is because it gives people who are in town something to do,” he said. Brockman said he talks with people about who they would like to see, as it varies each year. Last summer, Daniels returned to the series with Vander Ark. The Ragbirds and Toad the
Wet Sprocket also performed. Brockman said although Daniels drew the biggest crowd yet, he didn’t ask him to come back because he is in high demand at this time. Freeland sophomore Emily Doyle said she is a Howie Day fan and plans on going to the concert. “I enjoy going to concerts, no matter who they are,” she said. “It’s entertainment.” Doyle said the free event should draw in a large college crowd. Saginaw sophomore Mikasa Wolverton said going to a local concert is a way to take in the culture. “It would be a good way to start off the year,” she said, “especially for freshman coming in.” firstname.lastname@example.org
Codes placed on coasters at Michigan bars aim to reduce drunk driving By Brittany Wright Staff Reporter
Some Michigan bars around the state will soon be offering a tech-savvy way for patrons to safely find their way home. In order to decrease the amount of drunk driving around the time of March Madness and for the rest of the year, the Michigan Licensed Beverage Association and Office of Highway Safety Planning have teamed up to create a coaster that has a Quick Response Code that can be scanned to direct people to a nearby cab company. “The goal always is to encourage motorists to be safe and responsible when behind the wheel,” said Michael L. Prince, director of the Office of Highway Safety Planning in an article on digitaljournal.com. “The coasters are meant to reinforce this important message.” In a report from digitaltrends.

Although the money raised didn’t exceed last year’s record-setting $1,233,927, Wilbur said she is optimistic about future campaigns. “We’re very pleased with the results of this year’s annual campaign. This was our second-largest ever and we had more donors than ever,” she said. “We came up about $200,000 short of last year, but the campaign has just continued to have a steady growth
Watchdog groups give Michigan an ‘F’ in government accountability By John Irwin Senior Reporter

com published on Nov. 29, 2011, there was a study conducted with 500 participants to see how many college students were familiar with QR codes and how to scan one. “Even though 81 percent of those students owned a smartphone and 80 percent were familiar with a QR code, only 21 percent knew how to scan a QR code when given one,” the report stated. Around this time last year, during the men’s college basketball tournament timeframe (March 15 - April 4), law enforcement officers arrested 2,215 motorists for drunk driving, nearly 6 percent of the 38,000 people arrested for drunk driving last year. The intent is to have this coaster placed in bars throughout Michigan, hoping people who are too intoxicated to drive themselves home will scan the code on the coaster and find a cab in their area.
“As sellers and servers of alcohol, MLBA members are on the front lines of the fight against drunken driving every day,” said Scott Ellis, executive director of the MLBA. “This partnership with OHSP delivers an innovative new tool to offer our customers, promoting responsibility and safety across Michigan.” Patrick Glasson, bartender at L1 Bar and Grille, 1705 S. Mission St., said although the coasters are a good idea, L1 likely won’t be using them. “(They) would be more effective in a bigger city and maybe not effecitve in Mount Pleasant,” he said. Ashlee Satrman, server and bartender at Bennigan’s Grill and Tavern, 2424 S. Mission St., said she believes the coasters would be effective and the establishment would be interested in using the coasters.
and that’s a wonderful reflection on the commitment of the university faculty staff and retirees. It’s an important program for us every year and will continue to be so.” Donors choose where their gift will be used, and the money is used in a variety of ways, from scholarship funds and research work to departmental gifts. “Donors have the power to give to any account on campus,” Griffin said. “That’s the great thing about this campaign — you get to choose where your gift goes. Some people split their gifts up to four to six ways to help vari-
ous departments on campus.” Griffin said the focus of the campaign this year was mainly on the number of donors. “If we increase donors, the campaign will increase, too,” he said. “We looked to ask retirees to donate more than we have in past years.” Both the College of Medicine and the Athletics Department achieved a 100-percent participation rate from their employee group. Both of these groups will receive a plaque during a celebratory luncheon in April.

A NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED LEADER IN UNIVERSITY NEWSPAPER MULTI-MEDIA PRODUCTION
Central Michigan Life || Friday, March 23, 2012 || 5
A study released by three government watchdog groups says Michigan’s government is one of the least transparent and accountable state governments in the nation. Michigan received an “F” with a score of 58 out of 100 in the “State Integrity Investigation” report conducted by the Center for Public Integrity, Public Radio International and Global Integrity. The study gauged the risk of corruption among each state’s elected officials. The groups took a look at each state’s campaign finance laws and how well each state enforced them, along with different loopholes. Michigan was ranked 43rd in the country, receiving poor scores in public access to information, campaign finance, ethics enforcement, state pension fund management, redistricting and accountability from the executive, judicial and legislative branches of state government. Ken Silfven, deputy press secretary for Gov. Rick Snyder’s office, said Michigan is taking strides toward becoming more transparent. “Michigan actually is a leader in promoting greater transparency and our achievements have been recognized. For example, a recent Public Interest Research Group in Michigan study just upgraded Michigan’s score in recognition of its accomplishments,” Silfven said. “We’re on the cutting edge in terms of putting out meaningful information about how the state is doing in various policy areas through its ‘dashboard’ system, which is online for the world to see.” Silfven also noted Snyder’s State of the State address, where he called on
the state legislature to pass tougher campaign finance laws. “There’s a lot of positive advancements being made and we’re always looking for more ways to expand openness, accountability and transparency in Michigan,” Silfven said. Political Science Department Chairman Orlando Perez said Michigan has fallen behind other states when it comes to transparency. “(Michigan) lacks effective campaign finance legislation or a strong ethics enforcement agency,” Perez said. “While Michigan law sets limits to the amount of money a person can donate to a candidate, there are significant loopholes that allow individuals to get around the limits. Other states seem
to be able to enforce donation limits more effectively and have developed independent ethics enforcement agencies.” Perez said “lack of political will” is responsible for the state staying behind. Political Science Professor James Hill said part of the problem may be having too many elected officials. “I think it begins with having too many elected positions — Supreme Court, Attorney General, Secretary of State and even some university trustee boards,” Hill said. “They have bought into the campaign financing system and thus, cannot be the probing watchdogs. We need to keep the playing field level.” email@example.com

Student rappers showcase their acts at Hip-Hop Night By Paulina Lee Staff Reporter
What do Asher Roth, Mac Miller and Sammy Adams all have in common? The three were just college students when they got their big break in music and now have thousands of fans and songs in the top charts. Wednesday was Hip-Hop Night at Wayside Central, 2000 S. Mission St. The event was an outlet for Central Michigan University students to showcase their skills. It was the second time that it was held at Wayside Central, after moving from the original location at Rubble’s Bar, 112 W. Michigan St. The event, which started just after 11 p.m., had about 70 people in attendance. The first event that was held Feb. 22 had about 150 people attend. The show was also sponsored by two studentrun businesses, Cool Life Livin’ and MVMT. “People do things behind closed doors, so now they get to come out and do that,” said Nick Reynolds, owner of Cool Life Livin’ and a Kalamazoo senior. “I respect that, because that’s what Cool Life Livin’ is all about; just doin’ you.” He sold various apparel at the event, all which feature his original designs. From accounting and marketing majors to health profession majors, the student artists displayed a variety of rapping styles. Each of the four artists had 15 minutes to perform, with music and entertainment in between. The show was a debut performance for opening artist Adam Rothstein, a Shelby Township junior.

that carry overarching and injurious financial and academic implications for the institution as a whole,” the resolution stated. “Furthermore, the President and the Provost have failed to represent adequately the best interests of the institution to the board. Therefore, the school votes no confidence in the board of trustees, the president and the provost
“This is my first time doing a live show,” said Rothstein aka “ARo.” “I love having people appreciate (the music) and give feedback,” he said. “Of course I want to get my name out there, but it’s also about becoming part of someone’s memory. Just a chance to get into someone’s head for them to love.” Rapper Antoine Burks, known on stage as “Big Black,” has performed at Ferris State University and at the previous hip-hop events at Rubble’s. “This event means a lot, because I get to display my talents to the student body, and more importantly my peers,” Burks said. He also collaborates with his friends and said together they call themselves the “MitzPhits.” “When I can throw a couple friends on the track that are talented, I like to,” the Mid Michigan Community College senior said. He said he likes that the event moved to a larger, more wellknown place. “(The) venue is bigger and more notorious on campus; more people have heard of and are familiar with Wayside,” Burks said. Rapper Marcel Jones said he was also thankful for Wayside Central’s support. “Not a lot of venues would support hip-hop, so for Wayside to step up, that was really cool,” said Jones aka “XXCell.” Though the event centered around rappers and their music, there was also a featured performance by Bird and the Truth dance crew. “As a dancer, I represent real
hip-hop and I want to try and support it whenever I can, because we have to keep the art alive,” said Ricky Clarkson, who dances under the name “Bird.” Clarkson also teaches hip-hop class TAI 178B: Hip-hop, at CMU. Others agreed having both music and dance was important to the vibe. “I thought the event was pretty cool,” said Jackson junior Chance McBride. “It was really true to hip-hop too, with both the music and the dancers.” Alumnus Patrick Sulzman, “Stryve,” who graduated with a degree in marketing in 2010 was the last to perform and said it was a fun, new experience. “I just hope they keep doing it,” said Sulzman, who traveled from Lansing to perform. “There’s not much of a hip-hop scene in Mount Pleasant, but it’s good that they are trying to make something happen.” Cory Schafer, aka “DJ Schaftown,” is the owner of Dynamic Duo ENT. He currently manages three rappers and one acoustic artist, while operating a recording studio downtown Mount Pleasant. Schafer said he plans to have one more hip-hop night in April and then wants to come back in fall and bring in bigger names. Students wishing to perform at hip-hop night can post on his Facebook page, facebook.com/ DJSchafTown. “I don’t believe telling people not to follow their dream,” Schafer said. “I wish there was someone who helped me and (gave) me those opportunities.”
to uphold the principles of shared governance.” According to minutes from the March 13 meeting, 11 department members voted in favor of the resolution, two voted against it, two abstained and two were absent. Peter Orlik, chairman of the school of broadcasting and cinematic arts, said the motion was approved by the majority of the school’s staff. “The school of BCA carefully considered and crafted its own separate and dis-
tinct resolution from the one passed by the Academic Senate,” Orlik wrote in an email. The school of broadcasting and cinematic arts is the third member of the College of Communication and Fine Arts to endorse a vote of no confidence in university administration. Both the department of journalism and department of communication and dramatic arts have endorsed the A-Senate’s similar resolution.
An expert on bullying called for parents to take more of an active approach in their children’s lives on Wednesday. Elizabeth K. Englander, director of the Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center at Bridgewater State University, said parents are largely at fault for the epidemic in childhood bullying for giving cell phones to kids as early second and third grade. “As future educators, we should know what we need to be sensitive to and what we need to think about,” she said. “Don’t look for bullying as it is depicted on television. I want adults to know what they are actually looking for so that they can frame it and it becomes easier to spot it in the first place.” Englander was brought in for the latest event in the annual T.R. Johnson Speaker Series, “Bullying in High School and Higher Education,” sponsored by the College of Education and Human Services in the French Auditorium of the EHS building. Her presentation consisted of a series of slides and graphs, both introducing what “bullying” is and how it has impacted the lives of students. Throughout years of research, Englander has studied these forms of bullying and their impacts within all levels of the education system. “This is a very unique kind of topic to study,” she said. “It’s one of those things that happens in childhood that people have a tendency to never forget and to really carry with them.” With her studies of child aggression and technology, Englander started MARC in 2004. This center provides programing and research that works with schools, parents, state legislatures and other groups to highlight the overwhelming occurrence of different forms of bullying within school systems. However, what makes MARC unique is the fact that the
programs and information they offer are free, whereas similar seminars cost schools money to run. “This was a big motivation to me when I started the program,” Englander said. “I wanted to get services down to children whose schools otherwise would never be able to afford this kind of programming.” Within the presentation, Englander broke down cyber bullying and the different forms it consists of. Children, specifically females, tend to escalade to bullying others throughout middle school, high school and even into college. “There is quite the need to do continued research,” said Dale-Elizabeth Pehrsson, dean of the College of Education and

Human Services. “This seems to be pretty important, and this is really a major health issue for our country.” Robert Pehrsson, professor of English at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, stood by his wife’s argument that more needs to be done about the issues of bullying in schools. “Teachers need to be more aware of this issue,” he said. “The only way to deal with it is through education. Do not be naïve as a parent or a teacher.” Englander concluded that, though many digital problems begin in elementary school, the majority of cyber bullying happens during adolescence. firstname.lastname@example.org

MAC tournament begins Saturday at Northern Ill. CMU will look to qualify for regional competition By Seth Newman Staff Reporter
After winning the MidAmerican Conference regular season title last week the Central Michigan gymnastics team will go for the MAC tournament championship Saturday in DeKalb, Ill. as the top seed. Head coach Jerry Reighard said he thinks they’re ready by doing mock tournaments at practice. “I think we are ready, I know the team does,” Reighard said. “We’ve had two MAC championships in the gym already Jerry Reighard at practice. We haven’t counted a fall, and they’ve done everything we’ve asked for. I need to make sure this team isn’t tired, it’s been a long season.” The Chippewas are currently ranked 38th in the country. In order to qualify for regionals they need to be 36th. Reighard said believes with a first place finish in the MAC
championship and a score of 195.7 they can obtain that. Reighard is excited for the MAC championship, but has a boxer’s mentality when it comes to his strategy. He said he would rather see the team go down swinging than play it safe.

“If you let the pressure get to you then you aren’t going to flow,” Reighard said. “In practice today we were guarded, and held back. That’s a two-edge sword. We want the team going 100 percent. We want to be on the edge. All out.” Under Reighard CMU has won 13 Mid-American Conference titles. The 13th came on St. Patrick’s Day over Western Michigan. For the second year in a row CMU finished undefeated in the MAC. The desire to compete is one reason why the Chippewas came out on top at the end of the season, according to Reighard. “Some teams compete and they do really well,” Reighard said. “What has really impressed me with the 2012 team is they enjoy what they do. I think that is a huge advantage for our team. They are comrades in arms; this team loves to see each other do well. They thrive on it, and it’s a real catalyst for us.” At the beginning of the season the team was plagued with injuries. Five athletes on the team were out with injuries, including senior captain Samantha Piotrowski. Reighard said he wondered whether his team could rise against the odds and win a championship. “I was doubtful, I have to admit that,” Reighard said. “I know the team was doubtful. Some of the key people we were competing with when they got injured had some big shoes to fill. This group has worked hard, and is doing skills they’ve never done before. Their work ethic is what solidified it.” Senior Kristin Teubner has led the team in everything. As a senior captain, she had to. Teubner was crowned MAC gymnast of the Year in 2011, and likely will retain that crown after her performances this year. Reighard has seen Teubner grow in the last four years, and said he is proud to have her on the team. “Kristin has really grown, and matured over the last four years,” Reighard said. “The competitive attitude has really been contagious. She has shown younger athletes how to compete, and has really produced for us.” email@example.com

Michigan transfer running back preparing to compete, first time in two years By Ryan Zuke | Senior Reporter
ophomore running back Austin White is hoping a second chance is what he needs to get his football career back on track. White, a transfer from the University of Michigan, sat out last season because of NCAA transfer rules. He was later suspended from the team indefinitely for unknown reasons. But White is back and says he is ready to make an impact for the Central Michigan football team. “I feel good,” White said. “It’s good to be with the team, and I think we’re coming along real well.” White has not seen live action in two years and is eager to get back on the field. “I just missed the competitive nature of the game,” he said. “There’s nothing like being on the field for the game so that is really my drive and motivation right now.” Along with White, the Chippewas backfield will have three returning from last season, sophomore Anthony Garland and juniors Zurlon Tipton and Tim Phillips — all of whom had more than 50 carries last season. “I think we can be real dangerous,” White said. “We’re all different types of backs; we all bring something to the table, so I think it’s going to be really difficult for a defense to prepare for all of us.” Head coach Dan Enos said he thinks the Livonia, Mich. native
can be a vital contributor on offense. “I think he can play a big role,” Enos said. “I think we will have one of the best running back groups in our league and when you add the two freshmen, I think we are going to be really deep and athletic at that position.” Despite the abundance of running backs fighting for a major role, White says the competition is healthy. “I think we all push each other,” he said. “We all give each other something to work toward and that’s going to make us all better.” Although White said he wants to be a main part of the offense, his main focus is helping the team win a Mid-American Conference Championship. After winning the MAC Championship in 2009, CMU has

had back-to-back 3-9 seasons. White said he believes he can be a critical part in bringing back a winning culture. “Whatever I get, I get, but it’s really just about getting a championship, getting this program back where we want it and creating a winning atmosphere,” White said. As for his past offthe-field issues, he said they are behind him and he is ready to focus on the future. “I feel like with this coaching staff and this team, it’s like a family and you keep growing every day,” White said. firstname.lastname@example.org
Baseball opens conference play against strong Buffalo offense By John Manzo Staff Reporter

Starting pitcher Zach Cooper will take the mound at 3 p.m. today at Theunissen Stadium against Buffalo. It is the Central Michigan baseball team’s Mid-American Conference opener.
Zach Cooper, Rick Dodridge, Ryan Longstreth and the rest of the Central Michigan baseball pitching staff has their work cut out this weekend against Buffalo at Theunissen Stadium. Those three will be the starting pitchers as CMU and Buffalo open Mid-American Conference play at 3:05 p.m. today. UB has the most potent offense in the MAC statistically by far. The Bulls lead the MAC in batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, runs scored, RBIs, doubles, home runs and total bases, among several other statistics. The intensity level will be high as both teams enter what some coaches in the MAC call “the second season.” “There is a different level of in-
tensity for this weekend because this is the beginning of conference play,” head coach Steve Jaksa said. “My hope would be that we do similar preparation and just make sure we continue it for a full game. The whole thing is to play nine full innings.” The Chippewas posted a 9-12 record through non-conference play, but senior pitcher Jon Weaver said those games are in the past and the team needs to focus on MAC play because those are the games that have the most meaning. “We just need everything to come together,” he said. “The games before were good preparation for MAC play, but these are the ones that really count.” Jaksa said he wants his team to take it one game at a time. He said the team needs to focus on the game it is playing in and not look ahead to other
games throughout the weekend. Because he pointed out if the team splits the first two games, it has to start all over on Sunday’s game to win the series. “The level of your focus has to be good for the whole game and not looking forward to Saturday and Sunday,” Jaksa said. “Friday is the only game that matters.” Despite Buffalo’s potent offense, the team has a 6-9 record. These struggles come from a lack of quality pitching. Buffalo isn’t ranked in the MAC’s top 10 in earned run average, so expect high-scoring games throughout the weekend. This will end the Chippewas homestand as they head to Michigan State on Wednesday and Bowling Green next weekend. The Bulls haven’t played at home this season. email@example.com

Alex Niznak waiting for his opportunity By Brandon Champion Staff Reporter
There isn’t much question as to who will be the Central Michigan football team’s starting quarterback once the 2012 season begins. That distinction will most likely belong to two-year starter senior Ryan Radcliff, but as the Chippewas continue through spring practice, other quarterbacks on the team are working to improve for when it’s their opportunity to be the guy. One of these quarterbacks is redshirt freshman Alex Niznak. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound native of Ithaca is spending his spring battling fellow quarterbacks, like junior A.J. Westendorp sophomore Cody Kater for the back-up spot on the depth chart. So far, he says it’s been going good and that things are much easier during his second spring practices. “The first couple weeks of practice have been great,” he said. “I think the fact that I’m a year into it now is nice. Being here last spring really helped me in the winter to condition and lift and do everything that would be important out here.”
Niznak, who graduated early from Ithaca High School and enrolled at CMU for the spring 2011 semester, admitted that last season’s spring practice was a little intimidating, but this year things are different. “I’m 500 percent more comfortable in year two, I know everyone’s name.” Niznak said. “I’m not stepping into the huddle with guys who are five and six years older than me looking at me like, ‘Aren’t you supposed to still be in high school?’ I think that once you’re out here sweating with these guys you develop a bond. We’re both more comfortable with each other now.” Niznak is used to being the man. While at Ithaca High School, Niznak led the Yellow Jackets to a perfect 14-0 season and a Division 6 state championship his senior year. He completed 150-of219 passes for 2,731 yards and 31 touchdowns and ran for 1,161 yards and 21 touchdowns on his way to firstteam all-state honors. At CMU, the challenge for him is learning a back-up role, while improving daily. “I think what’s important to what I’m doing now was talking to other people who were in my position,” he said. “I

talked Ryan, Dan (Lefevour) and Kirk (Cousins) down at Michigan State, all of which were the back-up at some point. It’s always great to talk to people who have been there.” Niznak also talked about the importance of healthy competition, something he says is alive and well in spring practice. “We’re all out here competing, myself, Ryan, A.J. (Westendorp), Cody (Kater),” Niznak said. “But at the end of the day were all in meetings together, going out to dinner
and stuff like that. Ryan has been great in helping me with little things like getting in a huddle and taking command.” When the Chippewas take the field for their season opener against Southeast Missouri State on Aug. 30, Radcliff will probably be under center. Niznak will be on the sidelines, absorbing every play and waiting patiently for the time when he is the man calling the plays at CMU.

Team competes at LSU in first outdoor meet The recent heat wave could factor into a strong start for the Central Michigan outdoor track and field season in its first outdoor meet this weekend at the LSU Relays in Baton Rouge, La. Temperatures at LSU have been mild for the South, which is near the temperatures in Mount Pleasant. A twist of luck that may give the team an advantage in contrast to cooler springs of the past that keep the team train-

ing mostly indoors. Field events start at 10:30 a.m. today to begin the two-day meet. Running events will begin at approximately 2:15 p.m. Events will begin again at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. The Chippewas first outdoor meet of the season will pit them against the top track and field teams in the nation. LSU, the host, will compete throughout the weekend including Team Canada, Akron, Tulane, Arkansas State and Grambling State. For seniors, the outdoor season will be their last chance
to earn a Mid-American Conference championship. In the MAC indoor championship on Feb. 24 and 25, the men’s team finished third while the women’s team finished 10th. Director of track and field Willie Randolph said during the indoor season that Kent State would be a challenge in both the indoor and outdoor conference championships. The Akron men’s team finished in second place at the indoor conference championship and the women’s team won it. Thirty-four athletes will
compete for CMU at the Relays, which will mostly be sprinters, throwers and jumpers. Twenty-two athletes from the men’s team will compete, with the remaining 12 from the women’s. The Chippewas will host just two home meets throughout the rest of the season. The Lyle Bennett Open is April 28, followed by the MAC championship two weeks later on May 10-12. firstname.lastname@example.org

Big Ten bruising in Sweet Sixteen By Matt Thompson Sports Editor
Thursday night saw two Big Ten teams fall within a hour as Michigan State lost to Louisville and Syracuse beat Wisconsin. After tying a league record with four teams in the Sweet Sixteen, the Big Ten started the round 0-2. Ohio State played Cincinnati late Thursday night that ended after press time. No. 4 Indiana will play No. 1 Kentucky at 9:45 p.m. today on CBS. Indiana beat Kentucky early this year in Bloomington, Ind. on a last-second shot. The Spartans were still in the game at halftime down five points, but quickly fell behind after the break and lost 57-44. In senior Brandon Wood’s final game for Michigan State he shot 4-of-11 for 14 points. Senior forward Draymond Green kept shot 5-of-16 for 13 points and 16 rebounds. It was his third double-
double in three tournament games. He was cold from beyond the arch making 1-of-7 attempts. No. 4 Lousville will play the winner of No. 7 Florida against No. 3 Marquette (also played late Thursday night) Saturday. Michigan State as a whole couldn’t find its touch from 3-point land. The Spartans made five of 21 3-point shots. Louisville and Syracuse are in the Big East Conference. Syracuse was previously 0-6 against the Big Ten in the tournament. The Badgers were the second Big Ten team to fall Thursday night losing to No. 1 ranked Syracuse 64-63. Badgers point guard Jordan Taylor took a last-second deep 3-point attempt that hit the rim and dashed any hopes left for Wisconsin. Taylor still had 17 points, six assists and four rebounds. Wisconsin had to make a comeback in the sec-
ond half after trailing by 9 late in the first half. Taylor made two 3-pointers within a minute during a Wisconsin 9-to-5 run that gave the Badgers their first lead of the second half with 7:57 left in the game. Syracuse will face the winner of the Ohio State-Cincinnati matchup that happened late Thursday night. Whoever wins that game Saturday will be the East regional champions and go to New Orleans for the Final Four. At 7:47 p.m. today the No. 13 Ohio Bobcats will continue to represent the Mid-American Conference when they take on No. 1 North Carolina. The Tar Heels starting point guard Kendall Marshall might not be available to play. Monday he had surgery to put a screw in his right wrist after an injury suffered in the third round of the NCAA tournament. email@example.com

wrestling- Zach horan
Postseason run had improbable beginning By Jeff Papworth Staff Reporter
Zach Horan needed to be alone. He was just defeated in his first match by teammate Tyler Kesselring in a threematch series that would determine the competitor in the Mid-American Conference wrestling Championships for Central Michigan. Horan was one of six CMU wrestlers competing for three different spots in a wrestleoff on Feb. 24 because of a failure to separate from the pack. He finished the regular season 12-11 overall and 0-1 in the MAC. Kesselring was 13-9 and 2-1 in the conference. “The guys know each other very, very well because they practice against each other in the room,” head coach Tom Borrelli said. “It’s really more difficult to execute the things you’re good at (in a wrestleoff ) because the guy anticipates that.” It was a tough spot for the teammates and friends alike. “It’s not a very good situation,” Horan said. “It’s not a match you want to be wrestling too often.” Horan had one hour to recuperate until the next match against Kesselring. He spent the first 20 minutes sulking in an empty locker room. “I thought my season was about to be over,” he said. “I sat up in the locker room and just kind of thinking. Oh jeez I came out of high school with pretty high hopes. I was going to be a pretty good college wrestler and now at the end of the season I’m not even starting.” Horan was not accustomed to losing. He began wrestling at the age of 4. He had an illustrious high school career. He set the school record in wins in the ninth grade.
He won a state high school championship with a record of 49-0 in his senior year, after losing in the state finals to three different wrestlers, who were No. 1 in the country from his freshman to junior year. Horan would most likely not have been in the locker room inside McGuirk Arena, if it were not for his high school coach Dave Crowell. He became acquainted with Borrelli at a coaching clinic. Crowell, who kept in contact with Horan throughout the season, always reminded Horan to keep the Chippewas in mind. “I was actually kind of thinking about not visiting here and my high school coach is always like ‘You keep that one on the list,’” Horan said. “Then this ended up being the last school I visited and it was the one I liked the most. I committed right away.” Horan said he likes the campus and the wrestling coaches. “I think (Borrelli) is awesome,” he said. “He’s a great guy, great coach. It takes a lot to get him angry. He won’t really raise his voice at us when he’s disappointed, but he can still get that same effect.” Horan had lost five of his last six matches entering the wrestle-off. Everyone had their own reasoning to why he struggled. His roommate and teammate Mike Ottinger said he needed to improve on the little things; Borrelli said he was not relaxed enough and Horan said he needed to improve his strategy. All that mattered was Horan’s woes were washed away after he left the locker room. He started the next two wrestle-off matches fast. He grabbed takedowns in the

first period of both. That resulted in two wins earning a trip to Athens, Ohio for the MAC Championships. With his newfound confidence, he started the conference tournament by pinning the MAC’s No. 4 wrestler of the 133-pound weight division. Next was No. 1 Andrew Nowak. With the two tied at 1 after three periods, Horan held on to a 2-1 lead after escaping for a point in the tiebreaker. “When I was on bottom, he just let go and I was able to get away,” Horan said. “I could tell he was running out of gas, and I was feeling pretty good, so I knew just as long as I put pressure on him and did everything right on top, I was going to be able to ride him.” He finished the tournament giving a congratulatory hug to his coaches and parents after an easier win in the conference championship. In the first round of the NCAA Championships Horan defeated No. 12 Bryan Ortenzio in the final seconds to win 5-4. The postseason winning streak finally came to a close against No. 5 Joe Colon. But he rebounded with
two victories in wrestlebacks, including one over Mason Beckman, who had defeated Horan before. “I did not want to lose to him again,” Horan said. “I just went out and wrestled as hard as I could. Kept attacking him and kept going after him.” Horan’s luck ran out when the All-American status was at stake. He lost 5-3 after facing a 3-0 deficit in the third period again. “I was upset. I believed I was going to be on the podium and I was going to be an All-American,” Horan said. “I know it was unlikely. Most people probably don’t believe me, but when the coaches are saying everything to you, like if you wrestle well you can place… I was kind of sticking to all of that stuff.” firstname.lastname@example.org
What I can say with certainty from observing the Central Michigan wrestling and field hockey teams is success will be imminent for both programs next season. The wrestling team should have many members vying for All-American status and competing for national titles, and the field hockey team should have their sights set on a conference championship. Furthermore, wrestling coach Tom Borrelli and field hockey coach Cristy Freese’s pedigree shows they are up for guiding their respective teams to successful seasons. Both reached milestones in the last year. In their combined 26 seasons as head coaches, Borrelli surpassed 300 wins and Freese moved past 200 wins. They will have a roster that is a year older and wiser at their disposal. Their teams will only lose two seniors each from their last squad. Two seniors will anchor the wrestling team next year. Ben Bennett of the 184-pound class and heavyweight Jarod Trice, while the field hockey team will be led by midfielder Erin Dye and goalie Anastasia Netto. Trice took this year off to pursue the Olympics. He

placed fourth in the nation the last time he was wearing maroon and gold at the heavyweight division. Bennett completed another season as an All-American. He would be first four-time All-American in CMU wrestling history, if he continues his success in his final year. Dye came out strong at the end of the field hockey season after a slow start, scoring six goals in her last eight games. Netto’s improvement came in her second year starting. She allowed 1.83 goals per game, an improvement from 2.68 in her sophomore season. She earned second team AllMAC for her success at guarding the net. The wrestling and field hockey team do not lack in talented underclassmen either. Freshman Mike Ottinger surprised many with his performances on the mat. When he declined in the postseason, freshman Zach Horan stepped up in another weight class, coming one match away from All-American status. Freshman Cayleigh Immelman of the field hockey team won Mid-American Conference Freshman of the Year for her efforts. She was the team’s leading scorer with 12 goals and was also second in assists with nine. Wrestling and especially field hockey will always be a backdrop to football and basketball. But next year, they will most likely outdo their cohorts, whom participate in mainstream sports.
