“Every year is different. We try not to overlap routes so our cyclists can explore the country’s scenery and encounter different environments.” Norm Houze, director of deCycles
DECYCLES » CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 to broaden their horizons on the quest,” Houze said. Throughout the organization’s 13-year history, it has developed different routes each year spanning different parts of the country. In years past, cyclists traveled routes from coast to coast, Florida to Vermont. Last year, the cyclists traveled throughout the Southwest. “Every year is different. We try not to overlap routes so our cyclists can explore the country’s scenery and encounter different environments,” Houze said. Houze and his wife, Cricket, directors for the organization, said cyclists might want to quit, but quitting is not an option. If students get sick or injured, they can break to recover, but to quit because they are sick of riding isn’t allowed, Cricket Houze said. Norm Houze compared the mind-set for a lengthy endurance trip like this one to going to college. “In college you set out for a degree, you work at it every day, because it doesn’t happen overnight,” he said. “Cyclists have to push through like students and follow a structure set out dayby-day to take a road to achieve a goal. Our road just rises, and it rises pretty steep in some places, but no matter how steep you have to just put the gear in and go. You don’t give up until you get there.” Norm Houze and his wife are among 12 adult riders traveling with the student cyclists for encouragement and safety along the journey. The adult riders have a cycling background and have worked as coaches for Little 500 teams. They shift between riding and driving vans that haul equipment, safety gear and food for participants. The IU Student Foundation sponsors the trip and provides juice boxes, food, radios and other safety equipment used during

The riders were sent off with a pancake breakfast Saturday morning. The church also kept the bikes in its chapel the night before the race, with a church member sleeping in the chapel to protect them. Norm and Cricket Houze are longtime members of the church and asked the church for support while starting the organization. Since the deCycles’ 1996 start in Bloomington, it has gained staff members, coaches and support to make each year’s journey a safe and successful trip. The Rev. Lynette Carlson, cominister of Unity of Bloomington, said the bike journey represents a positive message to IU and the Bloomington community. “We live in a world of unlimited possibilities. If we think we can, we can, and these young riders prove that,” Carlson said. “An individual can make a bigger difference than they ever imagined possible. These kids are realizing they have more stamina, strength and determination than they thought. The youth involved must work together in groups of six and be responsible for each other and cooperate to achieve success.” This year, student cyclists will endure an average of 80 miles per day through the hills of West Virginia and the heat of North Carolina and will arrive home in Bloomington on July 12. This year marks the first time a deCycles trip will begin and end in Bloomington. Participants said the journey is a life-changing opportunity providing different experiences for different people. “I was overweight before the trip, but during the training series and the trip I lost 30 pounds and felt like I accomplished more than I thought I could,” rider Nick Cumings said.

Crawford, Schutz sign contracts BY ZACHARY OSTERMAN email@example.com
Two more members of the IU baseball team have begun professional sports careers. Junior outfielders Evan Crawford and Kipp Schutz elected to sign last week with the San Francisco Giants and Baltimore Orioles, respectively, ending on their IU careers and heading to the Minor Leagues. They join former IU pitcher Eric Arnett who signed last week with the Milwaukee Brewers. Crawford confirmed via text message Friday that he had signed with the Giants, who chose him in the ninth round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft. The speedy center fielder said he believed he was being assigned to the Class A Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, in Salem, Ore., though he wasn’t positive. A post to his Twitter account Sunday also sug-
gested the Arizona Giants, San Francisco’s rookie-league affiliate in Scottsdale, Ariz., might be a possible destination as well. As of press time, neither team’s roster could confirm where Crawford had been assigned. Schutz, who was taken by the Orioles in the 19th round three years after that same organization drafted him in the 26th round of the 2006 draft, signed June 15, according to the Evansville Courier & Press, his hometown paper. “There’s a lot of weight off my shoulders,” Schutz told the Courier & Press. That report also stated that Schutz would be assigned to the Bluefield Orioles, Baltimore’s rookie-league affiliate in the Appalachian League, though as of press time the team’s incomplete online roster did not include his name.

Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis checks the scoreboad as his team plays Nevada in South Bend on Saturday. Notre Dame beat Nevada 35-0, giving the Irish their ﬁrst shutout since 2002.
Weis has seen good, bad at Big House BY TOM COYNE The Associated Press
SOUTH BEND (AP) –Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis has seen the best and worst of Michigan’s Big House. After his team beat the thenNo. 3 Wolverines, quieting the crowd of 111,386 in Notre Dame’s first win in Ann Arbor in 12 years, Weis was asked about being the first Irish coach since Knute Rockne to open with two road wins. Two years later, en route to a humiliating 38-0 loss to the Wolverines, the scoreboard flashed that Washington was leading Ohio State 7-3. Michigan students chanted: “Tyrone’s better! Tyrone’s better!” – a reference to Weis’ predecessor, Tyrone Willingham. Rockne or Willingham? Weis doesn’t want the 18th-ranked Irish (1-0) thinking about either game or the rivalry when the two schools with the best winning percentages in NCAA history meet on Saturday. He wants the Irish to forget about everything, including last week’s 35-0 win over Nevada. “We’re only talking about this year. We’re not worrying about anything from any other time except this week,” he said Tuesday. “We’re not going to spend any time talking about last week, let alone the last time we were there. We’re just moving forward.” He expects Michigan (10) to take the same approach a year after the Wolverines turned the ball over six times in losing 35-17 to the Irish. He noted that Michigan is coming off a decisive 31-7 victory over Western Michigan after a week in which coach Rich Rodriguez was answering questions about a lawsuit over a real estate venture and accusations that his players were practicing beyond NCAA limits. “I don’t think they’re worrying too much about what happened last year,” he said Some fans would argue that this isn’t a rivalry game. The teams never played while Rockne and Ara Parseghian coached the Irish. They met three times during Fielding Yost’s 25 years as Michigan coach and twice while Frank Leahy coached the Irish and Fritz Crisler coached
the Wolverines. The two teams never met while Weis was a student at Notre Dame, resuming the series in 1979, the year after he graduated. But Weis, who always talks about how he treats every game the same – doing so again Tuesday – knows how important the game is. Several Irish players said last year they had never seen Weis fired up so much before a game as he was before Michigan. “He was pumped,” receiver Golden Tate said at the time. “He got us pumped.” Weis also revealed how important he thinks the game is back in April 2008, though not to the media. Talking about the upcoming season, he told a group of Notre Dame supporters: “Then we’ll listen to Michigan have all their excuses as they come running in and saying how they have a new coaching staff and there’s changes. To hell with Michigan.” Weis later explained the last comment was made out of respect for Bo Schembechler. The former Michigan coach, who died in 2006, was known on more than one occasion to say, “To hell with Notre Dame” – most notably when the Irish turned down a chance to join the Big Ten. While Weis wouldn’t admit Tuesday that the game is any more important to him or his coaches, he conceded Notre Dame players might treat the Michigan game different. “I think because both teams were somewhat question marks going into the opening week and both had sound, convincing wins, it’s increased the interest of everyone else as it relates to the game. The trickle-down effect is that it permeates to the players,” Weis said. Weis also has a little extra personal pride at stake in this one. The former offensive coordinator with the New England Patriots is friends with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, a Michigan graduate. In 2005, Brady lost a friendly wager when the Irish won and had to wear a Notre Dame hat to a news conference. Weis was asked if there was any wager this year. “We have traded texts. That’s all I’ll say,” Weis said, smiling.
VIENNA – Top artists such as Mary J. Blige, Akon and Chris Brown will sing some of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits at a Sept. 26 global tribute. But the much-anticipated lineup was a disappointment to a throng of reporters who had speculated that superstars such as Madonna would be part of the show to be staged in front of a 17th-century palace in the Austrian capital. “Just hold your horses!” Michael Jackson’s brother Jermaine said at a packed news conference in Vienna’s city hall, suggesting that some major names might still be added to the list. Event promoter Georg Kindel said that up to 25 performers are expected to participate in the concert that is being billed as the main global tribute for Michael Jackson, who died June 25 in
Los Angeles. More names will be unveiled later this week in London and Berlin, Kindel said. Sister Sledge, Natalie Cole, Angela Bassett and the Germany-based boy band US5 also are among the 13 artists confirmed so far, Jermaine Jackson said. In addition, Michael Jackson’s original band and dancers will take part. “We’re very excited – the list is growing more and more,” Jermaine Jackson said, adding that “many major Bollywood names” and artists from the Middle East also would be involved. All the artists will play some of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits at the concert, including “Thriller,” “Billie Jean,” “Black or White” and “Bad.” “We will honor on this night not only the musician and artist Michael Jackson but also the humanitarian,” Kindel said. “He’s really someone who changed the history of music.”
Michael Jackson’s family and children — as well as 65,000 fans – are expected to attend the tribute to be on a large stage with a crown on its roof and two runways in front of Vienna’s former imperial Schoenbrunn Palace, one of the Austrian capital’s top tourist attractions, Kindel said. A “significant portion” of the proceeds from the event will be donated to charity, he said. Throughout the course of the evening, Jermaine will sing a duet with his late brother, probably with video of Michael to be projected onto nearby walls, organizers said. All artists will sing either “Heal the World” or “We are the World” as a grand finale. When asked why stars such as Madonna and Whitney Houston – mentioned in Austrian media reports – were not on the list made public Tuesday, a defensive Kindel stressed the list of
performers was still not set in stone. “This is not the final lineup – maybe some of the names you mentioned you will hear within the next couple of days,” he said. Jermaine Jackson, meanwhile, acknowledged in response to another question that organizers were “in contact” with artists such as Madonna, Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross. Jermaine Jackson has said Vienna was chosen as the venue because his brother “loved castles,” and because Jermaine was impressed with how a smaller tribute presented in July outside a mothballed nuclear power plant was organized. “The beauty of the city is what just really knocks us out because it’s just a wonderful setting,” to keep Michael’s legacy alive, Jermaine Jackson said. Tickets went on sale last month.

Although the Supreme Court ruled the referendum illegal, Zelaya continued to push for it. Coleman said the coup has both helped and set back his research. “My research feels a little more important now than it did before,” Coleman said. “But it also has interrupted the research. Archives have been closed. I was able to go yesterday for the first time.” A curfew has also been imposed in Honduras, which Coleman said has affected his daily life. Local businesses have also been affected by the coup; many are choosing to stay closed. Coleman said many people seem scared more than anything else. In an article written by Coleman and published on the History News Network Web site, he said the coup is different than others in the past because it isn’t a division between political parties. Instead, the coup has created division among social classes. “The population is incredibly divided right now,” he said.
TUITION » CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 out-of-state undergraduates. University officials said it hopes to balance the tuition increase by providing additional financial aid. Administrators said they expect in-state tuition to seem 15 percent less because of the $200 million given by about 50,000 individual donors through the Matching the Promise capital campaign. “It’s the lowest residential increase in five years,” said Neil Theobald, IU vice president and chief financial officer. “This is by far the highest increase in financial aid in the history of the University. We tried to be modest in tuition and heavy in financial aid.” But not all parents are comforted by this news, including out-ofstate undergraduate students who could pay $26,156 this fall and $27,673 during the 2010-11 academic year. Brett Virgin, a parent of an incoming freshman and IU alumnus, said his daughter could go to school in Georgia for free with the help of the Hope Scholarship, a lottery-based scholarship that provides free college education to most in-state students. But she chose IU instead. “It’s not a problem. It’s an inconvenience and it could prohibit her from going in future years,” Virgin said. “It’s a worry I have that she’ll have to come back to Georgia and she won’t graduate from my alma mater.” As far as financial aid is concerned, Virgin said he makes too much money to qualify. Shannan Kirby, whose son is an incoming freshman, said her family has applied for financial aid, but they haven’t received much. Her family plans to look into student loans. “It’s really hard to pay for college as it is,” she said. “It might be a moderate increase now, but I think it’s going to go up and up.” But administrators said they understand the concerns of students and parents, but this tuition raise is necessary. The increase is because a $4

The four-star recruit, ranked among the Top 50 prospects by both Scout.com and Rivals.com, looks like he will follow in his brothers’ footsteps by attending a big-time Division I school. As of Monday afternoon he had offers from IU, Notre Dame, North Carolina State, Virginia, Minnesota and LSU, he said, though other coaches were watching his team’s games. Plumlee said he knows he needs to get stronger, especially since he has grown a lot in the last year, but he plans on working on all aspects of his game. The big man has “strong (family) roots” up near Purdue, he said, and thus only recent“Both the ousted president and the coup president are hugely flawed, and so either one of them is going to have a hard time governing.” Coleman said he plans to continue his stay in Honduras until his scheduled departure in September. IU has not released any warning for IU students in Honduras. Coleman said his adviser has been in contact with him to make sure he is doing fine. Associate Vice President for Overseas Study Kathleen Sideli said only a few IU medical students are currently in Honduras. “We have been in touch with the students – they are all fine,” she said. Of them, some of them have decided to come home earlier than planned; others will continue to stay in Honduras until they are scheduled to leave. Costa Rica’s president is supposed to act as a mediator between Zelaya and interim president Roberto Micheletti. “We will be here until the country calms down,” Micheletti told a news conference. “We are the authentic representatives of the people.” Until a solution between both leaders comes about, Coleman, like the rest of Honduras, will just have to wait. – The Associated Press contributed to this report million increase in utility bills and a $7 million increase in health insurance costs. Aside from raising tuition, McRobbie is authorizing spending and travel restraints on the University and administrators will not receive a salary raise. “It’s important to think of undergraduate education as an investment to your future,” Theobald said. “It’s not easy to come up with the funds, but there’s nothing we can do to not pay these costs. Everyone is sharing the burden.” The IU board of trustees will make a final decision on the cost of tuition during a meeting July 16. The board’s finance and audit committees will look at repair costs and future projections before next week’s meeting. During the meeting, members of the public will be allowed to ask questions followed by a motion and a vote. “It’s more than likely they will accept the recommendation, but it’s not certain,” Cast said. “Much of the work of doing the projections over many months has already been done.” IU’s tuition hike mirrors other Big Ten institutions. The University of Illinois confirmed a 2.6 percent tuition increase for incoming students. That is an increase of $121 per semester totaling $4,742 at the Urbana-Champaign campus. Michigan State University students will see a 10.1 percent increase during the next two years, with a 5.2 percent increase in the fall, raising tuition by $540. Purdue is proposing a 5 percent increase, or $388, for instate students and a 6 percent increase, or $1,394, for out-of-state students for the next two years. In-state students will pay $8,138, and first-time out-of-state students will pay $25,118 while returning students will pay $24,618. Ohio State University does not plan to increase tuition for Ohio residents in the 2009-10 academic year. “All over the United States the burden has fallen on the university and not on the state,” Cast said. “A few decades ago, more than half the funding for the University was paid for by the state.”

The project, completed in 2004, made Bloomington more well-known for its life sciences industry, Walker said. It’s unclear what Fernandez will focus on when he gets to office, whether it’s life sciences or
another industry or goal. “There’s so many changes going on there, I don’t know what kind of directives he’ll be given once he takes office,” Walker said. But, Walker said, he does believe Fernandez is looking out for the small business and the community. Fernandez works for a small business and he supports high quality jobs that have a future to them, Walker said.
Fernandez, whatever he does, will capitalize on community strengths, he said. “I think he’s a communityminded guy,” Walker said.

The decision is a bittersweet victory for No Sweat!, which is made up of IU undergraduate and graduate students. “We’re disappointed at IU’s failure to be more firm with Coca-Cola,” he said. “The campaign did achieve success in investigating the things and, through our contacts, really lobbied to have ethical clauses.” Wehrle said he believes one of the reasons the contract was renewed was because of Coca-Cola’s willingness to look at the company’s problems and fix them. He also said the new clauses in the contract make this contract better than the last. “These ethical clauses are a victory within itself,” he said.

Recently, CNN ran a short segment about Wong Fu and how they were working to advance AsianAmericans in the media. â€œWe actually didnâ€™t set out to be the â€˜heroesâ€™ of Asian-Americans,â€? Fu said. â€œIt just happened by accident. But now that weâ€™re given this huge responsibility, almost, I feel like itâ€™s our duty to take it seriously.â€? Wong Fuâ€™s channel now has more than ď™€ď›œ,ď˜źď˜šď˜š subscribers. Theyâ€™ve also expanded to include a merchandise line. â€œWe donâ€™t really get a lot of money off of the shorts themselves,â€? Chan said, â€œSo the shirts and everything help pay for the basics: food, rent and yeah, food.â€? Recently, though, Wong Fu began to show a
little heart. Since August, they have taken some of their proceeds from merchandise sales and donated to various charities. For example, Octoberâ€™s charity was the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Fund. Tuesday night saw the premiere of new projects Wong Fu have worked on over the past few months. They announced they would be working with Kevin Wu (known as KevJumba on YouTube) on an upcoming Web series. As a surprise, they premiered a very rough draft of the first episode. In addition, the group screened a short film from their series â€œThe One Days HKâ€? â€” a group of films filmed in one day. Though the film was in Cantonese, there were subtitles for those who havenâ€™t brushed up on their Asian languages. Whatâ€™s in store for Wong Fuâ€™s future includes more than just viral videos. Last year, they began their International Secret Agents concert series, which highlights up-and-coming Asian-American artists. The opening show featured the musical group Far*East Movement and winners of â€œAmericaâ€™s Best Dance Crew,â€? Quest Crew. â€œWe hope to one day move ISA from Los Angeles and San Francisco over to the East Coast; maybe New York City and D.C.,â€? Wong said. As far as their films go, theyâ€™re hoping to produce another feature length film, while avoiding the fiasco that was their last attempt. â€œWeâ€™re really keeping our fingers crossed that this new movie pulls through,â€? Chan said. â€œWho knows, maybe weâ€™ll stop by JMU again when we go on our next screening tour.â€?
PLAY | Martinâ€™s Script Provides
Comedy Mixed With the Profound from page 7
be passionate about something.â€? The passion pervades not only the performances but also the charactersâ€™ surroundings onstage. JMU alumnus and seasoned set designer and art director John Burgess has returned as director of technical productions and oversaw the set design for the play with input and help from junior studio art major Julia Kennedy. Because of the advanced technical nature of the set, Burgess focused on how the set works while Kennedy concentrated on its appearance. â€œOne of Juliaâ€™s ideas was that the world felt kinda like a painting,â€? Burgess said sitting in front of the student-painted set filled with long strokes of the paintbrush along the walls giving evidence of the artistâ€™s hand. Kennedyâ€™s inspiration also came from her weekend visit to the real bar in Paris while she
studied abroad in London last summer. She absorbed her surroundings and combined her knowledge of Picassoâ€™s work with the requirements of the script and produced the intriguing bar now atop the Latimer-Shaeffer stage. â€œThis is more like a puzzle. This wasnâ€™t a normal set design,â€? Kennedy said. Steve Martinâ€™s unusual script throws the characters into a bar, and at points it seems like itâ€™s just an excuse to get laughs. However, it borders on the profound, making the audience question the purpose of art versus science, and which one truly shaped the ď˜şď˜šth century. Martin is clever not to give answers or to become too philosophical and towards the playâ€™s end a mysterious visitor from the future enters to make the characters question their respective arts. With the castâ€™s passionate performances, the unique set and Martinâ€™s entertaining script, the show captivates the audience while in the theatre and long after the final bows.
