Students observe Lent by resisting temptation

Staff Reports

Just two days after missing out on a conference championship, first-year LSU women’s basketball coach Nikki Caldwell received a different bundle of joy, giving CALDWELL birth to her first child Tuesday morning, LSU announced. Justice Simone Fargas was born at 5:44 a.m., weighing in at 6 pounds, 15 ounces and 19 3/4 inches long. Both Caldwell, 39, and Justice are in good health, according to a news release.

Father Todd Lloyd of Christ the King Catholic Church on campus said the 40 days of Lent are for people to reflect on the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert. “During that time, he resisted temptation,” Lloyd said. “And so can we.”

Catholics also abstain from eating meat on Fridays during Lent. Lloyd said the church used to encourage members to observe meat-free Fridays all year, but the tradition has changed over the years. Not eating meat allows Catholics to sacrifice as a group and brings them closer to one another and to God, he said. “We give up the flesh of an animal because Christ gave up his flesh for us,” he said.

Runners gather for 5K, alcohol Downtown bar Happy’s hosts run Rachel Warren Staff Writer

ALYSSA SIRISOPHON / The Daily Reveille

Happy’s Running Club participants meet at North Boulevard Town Square on Tuesday prior to their weekly Tuesday evening 5K run.

For more than 100 Baton Rouge residents, the beginning of the week means it’s time to hit the ground running. Each Tuesday, a group of runners gather downtown and relax afterward with a drink as part of Happy’s Running Club. Residents congregate each week at 6 p.m., rain or shine, at Happy’s Irish Pub on Third Street. They run a 5K, or 3.1 miles, and reconvene

at the bar. Happy’s often offers specials to club members and encourages them to stay and enjoy themselves after the run. Baton Rouge business owner and club founder Scott Higgins said he first had the idea for the club after reading a magazine article about similar groups. “There are running clubs here, but nothing as social as this,” he said. “Most of them are for training.” He brought the idea to his business partner Michael Lang, and the group was formed within a month. Higgins said the club, which encompassed 17 runners on its first night four years ago, has grown to become one of the largest

in the country. The group ended 2011 with 850 members, but it sees about 2,000 one-time runners in an average year. About 200 to 250 people run with the group each week in the summer and more than 100 in the winter. Higgins said the group makes it possible for residents to improve their abilities and get to know one another. “In the beginning, it might be the only day of the week they run,” he said. “It’s exciting to see people HAPPY’S, see page 15

Prince Harry runs with Usain Bolt at university in Jamaican capital

Miss Seattle apologizes for tweet bashing city’s weather, people

Saints general manager, coach admit blame amid bounty scandal

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — It wasn’t much of a race, but then it really couldn’t have been as the world’s fastest man and Britain’s Prince Harry met up on a track Tuesday in the Jamaican capital. Wearing a track suit emblazoned with Jamaica’s colors of green, black and gold, the prince got off to a blatant false start and was about 50 meters down the track as Usain Bolt bent over with laughter. Harry then joined Bolt for a few pointing poses to a crowd at the University of the West Indies. ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ composer dies at 86 in London

SEATTLE (AP) — The newly crowned Miss Seattle says she was just having a bad day back in December when she tweeted, “Ugh can’t stand cold rainy Seattle and the annoying people.” Since winning the pageant on Saturday, Jean-Sun Hannah Ahn has said she was just complaining about the weather like any Seattle native and didn’t mean that people in Seattle are annoying. The former Miss Phoenix told KIRO-FM she was in a transition period, missing friends and sunshine.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis have taken “full responsibility” for the bounty program run by former assistant coach Gregg Williams. Payton and Loomis admit violations of league rules “happened under our watch.” They also promised it would never happen again. Payton and Loomis say Saints owner Tom Benson “had nothing to do” with the bounty pool. The league’s investigation found that Benson told Loomis to stop the bounty program once the NFL alerted the owner about it, but Loomis did not act.

LONDON (AP) — How do you sum up the work of songwriter Robert B. Sherman? Try one word: “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” The tongue-twisting term, sung by magical nanny Mary Poppins, is like much of Sherman’s work — both complex and instantly memorable, for child and adult alike. Once heard, it was never forgotten. Sherman, who died in London at age 86, was half of a sibling partnership that put songs into the mouths of nannies and Cockney chimney sweeps, jungle animals and Parisian felines.

President Hamid Karzai’s Tuesday endorsement of the Ullema Council’s document, which allows husbands to beat wives under certain circumstances and encourages segregation of the sexes, is seen as part of his outreach to insurgents like the Taliban.

Student suggests aid for veterans Kate Mabry Staff Writer

A student veteran has written a bill to provide additional financial aid for student veterans, which he hopes a state legislator will pick up for discussion in the legislative session that begins March 12. Interior design junior Austin Stukins, secretary of Student Veterans of LSU, said he handles legislative matters within the organization and hopes his bill, which seeks funding beyond the traditional five-year coverage, will gain the interest of state legislators. Though legislators are already slated to debate changes to TOPS aid for veterans, Stukins said most veterans don’t take advantage of TOPS anyway. Stukins said he thinks the proposed bill to adjust TOPS requirements for veterans is “a step in the right direction,” but he thinks more can be done to assist veterans wishing to return to school. Many University programs, including the engineering and interior design programs, are estimated to take longer than four years to complete. In order to receive TOPS benefits, Stukins said students in more extensive programs are forced to graduate sooner than planned. “You’d have to cram five years of work into four,” he said. “That’s a big workload. The Yellow Ribbon Program is something I have devised

and introduced to a few legislators, but it has not been introduced on the floor of the House or Senate.” Stukins’ Yellow Ribbon Program would give the option for higher education institutions to work with Veterans Affairs to provide funding for additional tuition expenses. Under Stukins’ bill, student veterans would receive funding for programs exceeding four years or further degrees, including graduate school. Once a veteran has exhausted the federal funding, the veteran could receive a grant through the program, which will provide funding for as many as 150 additional credit hours. The program’s branch fund, which is a deficit neutral grant fund, will not impact tax payers since it is funded by tax-deductible donations. As a stipulation, Stukins said students would sign an agreement with the state promising to work in Louisiana for the same amount of time after graduation. “For example, if the veteran chooses to use the grant fund for an additional year, they will stay in the state for a year after graduation,” he said. “This way, students are giving back to the state and helping to aid state economic growth and productivity, while keeping the best and brightest minds in the state.” Stukins estimated about 1,200 veterans statewide would take advantage of the program. “We should want to do everything to give back to those who put it all on the line,” he said. “Joining the

U.S. military is like writing a blank check to the U.S., and the amount is up to your own life. This bill would give veterans the ability to have a better life through pursuing higher education.” Since TOPS officials are familiar with implementing scholarships, Stukins suggested they oversee the processing of these benefits should the bill be implemented. Even though the program would be deficit neutral, Stukins said the main obstacle to putting his plan into action is finding a legislator who will support the initiative due to the immediate negative perception regarding spending in higher education. “Some lawmakers are hesitant to introduce the legislation for fear that a committee would reject it without fully understanding that it could be done in a deficit-neutral fashion, or that the governor might veto it based on his cuts to higher education already,” he said. Deficit-neutral funding would not generate any new taxes or increase spending on the state. Instead, the grant would be voluntarily funded by tax-deductible donations. Illinois, Montana and Texas have similar bills, and Stukins said Louisiana Sen. Valarie Hodges expressed interest in his bill in the past.

Students applying to out-ofstate graduate schools may not have to travel to take entrance exams, but they do have to pay, according to Bobby Matthews, director of the Office of Testing and Evaluation. Employees of the Office of Testing and Evaluation charge for entrance exams by the length of time they take. Employees serving as proctors commonly charge $40 for two hours, with a subsequent $20 fee for each additional hour, Matthews said. However, the service is not offered during the University’s operating hours. The Testing Center restricts all proctoring services to after 4:30 p.m. Matthews and Sandi Guillot, business manager and assistant to the director of the Office of Testing and Evaluation, both firmly believe University resources should not be used to perform this service because it is unrelated to LSU. Students applying to the LSU Graduate School, on the other hand,

do not have to pay additional proctoring fees, according to Matthews. They can also take their tests during business hours. “What proctors do with their time is their business,” Matthews said. “I am not going to force them to stay after hours without pay.” Although University employees are paid independently for proctoring tests, both Matthews and Guillot confirmed that the Himes Testing Center has been used for proctoring. “For as long as I have been here, we have been offering this service to students,” Matthews said. “It is available to individuals who need to have a non-LSU test proctored by a testing professional.” Guillot said despite the fees, the service is necessary because some students cannot travel to take tests. “We are willing to provide proctoring for virtually any kind of test,” Guillot said. “It is better and cheaper than having to pay for a test at an independent testing center.” Contact Joshua Bergeron at

MITT ROMNEY Idaho Massachusetts Vermont Virginia

RICK SANTORUM North Dakota Oklahoma Tennessee RON PAUL (No wins for candidate)

Information and photos courtesy of THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Super Tuesday voters assess Rep. candidates The Associated Press COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP) — Voters at Super Tuesday precincts drew a composite sketch, of sorts, of the Republican candidate they’d most like to have to challenge President Barack Obama in the fall. He’d possess Mitt Romney’s economic cred, Rick Santorum’s heartfelt conservatism and Newt Gingrich’s intellect. Or, he would just be Ronald Reagan instead. Not everyone who came out to churches, schools and rec centers was brimming with confidence about Republican chances once the party has its nominee. In a bruising campaign pocked with attack ads, the flaws of the hopefuls were in stark relief. Robert G. Reed, 76, of Anderson Township in suburban Cincinnati, summed up the minuses as he sees them, practically in one breath: “Romney is too rich, Santorum is too religious, Ron Paul is too old, and I just don’t like Gingrich.” Reed, an independent who is retired from working on gas lines, voted for Santorum anyway. But at a church precinct in Fayetteville, Ga., not-so-glum businessman Glenn Valencia spoke as if reading from Romney’s playbook in characterizing what the former Massachusetts governor and venture capitalist has to offer the party and the country. “You compare Obama with Romney — Obama big spender, community organizer,” he said. “Romney — business organizer, wealth builder, a guy who knows how to make money and has done well, and that’s what he’s done for a profession, is turn around companies. And that’s what we need to do, is turn around the economy.” Still, in suburbs across Ohio, the most fiercely contested state Tuesday, voters spoke of the “painful” campaign and the toll it could take on the eventual nominee. “I haven’t liked the way they’ve dismembered each other,” said Barry Hunter, 65, a retired pharmaceutical-company manager in Dublin, outside Columbus. “They’ve all been pretty cutthroat.” He backed Gingrich. In suburban Cleveland, Matt Howells, 52, a contractor and Santorum voter, worried that the rivals have merely managed to harm Republican prospects in November with all that negativity. “They really have an uphill battle,” he said. “I really don’t see a Republican winning the White

House. I see it going down as Obama again.” Similar worries were heard in some of the nine other states where people voted or caucused Tuesday. In Edmond, Okla., Tricia Tetreault, 49, voted for Gingrich, whom she considered the best in a humdrum field. It was enough to make her pine for the Grand Old Party’s good old days. “Ronald Reagan isn’t available anymore,” she lamented. “What can I say?” But Romney appealed to Heather Froelich, 40, of Westerville just outside of Columbus. She’s a registered Republican and textbook editor who survived layoffs in December but saw some of her friends lose their jobs. “I know that he understands the economy,” she said. “He has the right experience and values.” She likes him, too, which she can’t say about others in the race. “Santorum just bores me to tears,” she said. And “I don’t like Gingrich’s whole approach, the way he comes across, his personal life.” At an elementary school in suburban North Royalton near Cleveland, aircraft mechanic Mike Reardon went with his gut — Santorum — even though his head might have told him Romney’s got the best shot for Republicans in the fall. “I think he’s a good conservative,” he said of Santorum. “I don’t know if he would be the best to go up against Obama but he’s my personal favorite.” Cathy McDevitt, 52, a Westerville doctor who describes herself as a moderate Republican, voted for Paul because he’s the only “peace candidate.” But she imagines she’ll back Romney in the presidential election if he becomes the candidate — despite voting for Obama in 2008.

Student arrested in response to broadcast e-mail regarding theft A University student was arrested after being identified from a broadcast e-mail sent out by the LSU Police Department. On Feb. 27, 19-year-old general business student Nicholas Teachworth of 3904 James Drive, Metairie, was arrested and charged with theft. LSUPD spokesperson Capt. Cory Lalonde said LSUPD received a report in reference to a purse theft on a Tiger Trails bus. He said the credit card of the victim was used at several locations near campus. Through investigation, Lalonde said a surveillance video of a possible suspect was obtained. The suspect’s photo was sent in an e-mail Feb. 27 to the University community. Lalonde said LSUPD received several phone calls in reference to the photo, and investigators

Wednesday, March 7, 2012 identified the suspect as Teachworth. Teachworth admitted to using the credit card after finding the purse. Teachworth was issued a misdemeanor and released Student arrested with two traffic warrants during routine traffic stop University student Sarah Taylor was arrested and booked on Feb. 29 for two outstanding traffic warrants. The 26-year-old environmental engineering student from 26428 Greenwood Drive, Denham Springs, failed to appear in court. After officers conducted a routine traffic stop on South Stadium Drive, Lalonde said officers learned she had two warrants for her arrest from the 19th Judicial District Court. She was arrested and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish prison. Taylor received a traffic citation for an expired license plate and

inspection sticker and no insurance. Man arrested, issued misdemeanor for hit-and-run on Burbank Drive A man unaffiliated with the University was arrested on March 2 at 1:36 p.m. after hitting a vehicle and leaving the scene. Lalonde said officers were able to contact the registered owner of the vehicle, who identified the driver as 31-year-old Derek Paul Achord of 5383 Courtyard Drive, Gonzales. At 9:45 a.m., officers were dispatched to a hit-and-run that occurred at Burbank Drive and Nicholson Drive. Lalonde said the complainant told the officers a vehicle had struck the rear of his vehicle and left the scene. Achord was issued a misdemeanor for a hit-and-run.

BR No. 1 for new corporate facilities Award given by Site Selection

Lauren Duhon Staff Writer

Site Selection magazine named Baton Rouge the No. 1 metropolitan area for new corporate facilities in 2011, the second time the city has received the honor. Site Selection honored the capital with the title based on its recent business development. The magazine uses a database to track business developments across the

country. BRAC spokesperson Lauren Songy Hatcher said the Baton Rouge area finished for the year with 38 qualifying projects. Baton Rouge has finished first for two years in a row and is the first city in Louisiana to do so. “Ranking No. 1 in the U.S. is a testament to the benefits of a true regional strategy and partnership,” said Adam Knapp, BRAC’s President and CEO, in a news release. “The Baton Rouge area’s project pipeline is robust today, and we look forward to another great year for regional economic development.” Baton Rouge was followed on

the list of top 10 metropolitan areas by Dayton, Ohio, and Tulsa, Okla. Site Selection’s database tracks facilities based on three factors: involvement of a capital investment of at least $1 million, a creation of at least 50 new jobs and an addition of at least 20,000 square feet of new floor space to the development. Site Selection does not track retail, government projects, schools or hospitals.

Nola impressive against Tulane

Mettenberger confident as he takes the reins

Hunter Paniagua Sports Writer

Alex Cassara

Sports Contributor

In the past four years, LSU football fans had two quarterbacks to argue over and criticize. With the departure of controversial signal-callers Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee to graduation, that pressure now rests squarely on junior quarterback Zach Mettenberger. Mettenberger has been waiting to become the starter since his arrival in Baton Rouge last spring from Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kan. With a full year to learn the playbook and establish his role as a leader, he said stepping into the spotlight has been a smooth transition. “I’m trying to take the offense by the reins, and I’ve got to be a leader on and off the field,” Mettenberger said. “It’s always easier to be a vocal leader when you’re finally the starting quarterback.” Some of his teammates said they could immediately see a change in his demeanor early in spring football practice. He’s cut his hair and shaved his beard, reflecting the business-like attitude METTENBERGER, see page 11

NEW ORLEANS — The last time freshman pitcher Aaron Nola stood on the pitcher’s mound in Tulane’s Turchin Stadium, he was on the wrong end of a loss in the Louisiana state semifinals. The Catholic High School alumnus erased that defeat from his mind Tuesday night as he tossed eight scoreless innings and led No. 13 LSU (11-2) to a 5-0 victory against Tulane (10-3). The game marked Nola’s second career win in as many starts, as he struck out a season-high six batters. “Once I got in the groove with the first-pitch strikes, I was on,” Nola said. “Getting that first-pitch strike really settles you down and relaxes you.” Nola threw just 78 pitches in his eight innings of work, 62 for strikes. He threw first-pitch strikes to 20 of the 27 batters he faced. At one point, Nola faced nine consecutive batters without throwing a ball, allowing just one hit during the streak. “It was just complete domination,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “He threw nothing but strikes. It seemed like he was 0-and-2 on every batter. ... It was masterful.” Only one baserunner — junior third baseman Garrett Cannizaro BASEBALL, see page 11

Scenes from Tuesday’s practice Chris Abshire Sports Writer

Former LSU soccer goalie Mo Isom is pursuing a different kind of football dream this spring. Isom kicked again Tuesday during an ongoing tryout to make the LSU football team as a walk-on. “We’re looking at things like hang-time, distance control and accuracy,” said LSU coach Les Miles. “That’s how we evaluate all kickers. If she gives us an advantage, we’ll give her a shot.” Isom, the reigning Homecoming queen, was a standout goalie for four seasons with the Tigers soccer team. She allowed 21 goals in 21 games this past fall, compiling a 135-1 record as the starting goalkeeper for LSU’s Southeastern Conference western division championship team. Isom is renowned for her strong leg, which routinely sent goal kicks


well beyond the midfield and earned her a highlight-reel, cross-field goal as a freshman. “I like that she’s an athlete,” Miles said. “She’s been on teams before, [she] understands that commitment. I wouldn’t have any reservations if she proves herself on the field.” Isom would have one year of football eligibility.

EARLY ENROLLEE EARNS ACCLAIM Freshman linebacker Ronnie Feist should still be in high school. Instead, Feist is taking down Tigers in practice. The West St. John product and spring enrollee was a standout performer at Tuesday’s practice, LSU’s fourth of the spring. Feist took on sophomore running back Kenny Hilliard in Miles’ physical ‘Big Cat’ drill. The freshman ferociously drove Hilliard into the turf, inspiring

spirited cheers from the defensive unit. “[Feist]’s young, but he’s eager,” Miles said. “He has the physical makeup. The ‘Big Cat’ is a nice predictor of toughness and want. Ronnie passed.” Feist, the 2011 Louisiana 1A Defensive Player of the Year, also earned kudos for his footwork in pursuit drills from defensive coordinator John Chavis. OFFENSIVE LINE GETS A SHAKEUP Miles spent individual drills catching up with his favorite unit: the offensive linemen. A slew of young linemen impressed as offensive coordinator and line coach Greg Studrawa focused on blocking packages. “The curriculum for young offensive lineman is difficult,” Miles said. “It’s an expansive, ever-changing role. You have to quickly learn

pass sets, combo footwork and double team blocks.” Embattled sophomore transfer Elliot Porter took snaps at center, where Miles said he expects the Waggaman, La., native to compete for significant playing time next fall. Sixth-year senior Josh Dworaczyk — who started 26 straight games in 2009-10 — is used to starting when healthy. But standout

sophomore La’el Collins has impressed this spring, creating a healthy challenge to Dworaczyk’s hold on the spot. “La’el will step in and play,” Miles said. “He’ll make the position play better than him. It gives Josh a challenge to meet.” Contact Chris Abshire at

The Tigers (10-7) dropped three of four games last weekend — two against No. 8 Oklahoma and one to No. 22 Oklahoma State — but view a midweek contest against Nicholls State (4-15) as a chance to get back on track. “It would be nice to bounce back after having two losses in a row,” said LSU senior pitcher Brittany Mack. “We faced them in the fall, so we know what we’re up against, and we know we can beat them.” LSU coach Beth Torina said the Tigers, who beat the Colonels 9-0 in a fall exhibition contest, need to be prepared to play their best game of the season, no matter the opponent. “At this point in our season, every win is crucial to what we’re trying to do,” Torina said. “Every time we take the field, we have to be concerned with making sure that we’re getting the wins we need to put ourselves in the postseason at the end of the year.” After a weekend in which the Tigers’ bats struggled — opposing pitching shut out LSU in each of its three losses — Mack said the team will take a different approach at the plate. “If we have to, just swing for the fence and get in our heads that we know we’re good hitters,” Mack said. “I want us to take [Nicholls] as a tough team, don’t take them lightly, and go out there and push ourselves to the best of our ability.” Freshman third baseman Kailey McCasland said her mindset at the plate will be simple. “We’re not playing too tough of an opponent, so we just need to kill them to get our confidence up,” McCasland said. “We just need to go out there and crush.” McCasland shone as a bright

spot at the plate for the Tigers over to be correct.” the weekend, batting LSU emerged the Next up for 2-for-2 Saturday mornvictor in 22 of its previing against Oklahoma ous 23 contests against the Tigers: State, striking for a the Colonels, including two-run double and her Who: LSU (10-7, 0-0 SEC) each of eight meetings vs. Nicholls (4-15, 0-0 fist career home run. in Thibodaux, La. “Kailey was Southland) Starting with togreat,” Torina said. night’s contest against “She’s been swinging When: 6 p.m. today Nicholls State, Toreally well in practice.

BASEBALL, from page 5

— advanced past first base against Nola, reaching third on a one-out single by senior catcher Jeremy Schaffer in the first inning. Nola worked out of the threat thanks to a leaping catch by sophomore second baseman JaCoby Jones, who doubled up Schaffer at first. Mainieri called that play the “key of the game.” “That’s why I made that change,” Mainieri said referring to Jones’ move back to second base

with senior utility man Grant Dozar, and chided him goodnaturedly when he didn’t help pick up the balls they’d hit to the outfield grass. Mahtook has even been a regular at LSU home games, sitting right behind LSU’s dugout — an unusual perspective for him. “It was the first time I ever

sat in the stands at the new stadium,” Mahtook said. “It was a little weird. … It was hard to watch them and not be playing.” Junior first baseman Mason Katz, who took Mahtook’s No. 8 uniform at his suggestion, called Mahtook one of his closest friends and best coaches. “It’s been awesome, he’s been helping me all year. He’s

been just like a coach to me,” Katz said. “I’ll believe what he says, he hit so well here that I’m going to take his advice every time.” Katz said Mahtook’s departure was “depressing” but for the former All-American, it’s on to bigger and better things. “I’m looking forward to starting my pro career, this is

really just the beginning of it,” Mahtook said. “It’s going to be a grind … but it’s going to be fun.”

after starting in center field to open the season. “JaCoby made a lot of plays like that last year for us.” The LSU offense responded quickly as the Tigers jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second inning. With two outs, senior third baseman Tyler Hanover singled to left field and senior designated hitter Grant Dozar followed that with a double to put both runners in scoring position. Sophomore catcher Ty Ross drove both runners home with a single but was thrown out trying to

advance to second base. Clutch hitting became a pattern for LSU, as all five of the Tigers’ runs came with two outs in the inning. LSU scored a run in the fourth, eighth and ninth innings with Dozar, junior right fielder Raph Rhymes and freshman centerfielder Chris Sciambra each notching an RBI. “I thought Ross set the tone for the game with his clutch hit,” Mainieri said. “Of course Rhymes had a clutch hit, Dozar had a clutch hit, Sciambra had a clutch hit —

two outs, all of them.” Nola admitted he wanted to return to the mound in the ninth inning, but Mainieri opted for the safer approach, sending out sophomore southpaw Chris Cotton to face the left-handed leadoff man in the final frame. “I would have loved to see him finish,” Mainieri said. “But it’s a long year ahead of us, and he’s got a long career ahead of him. I think it’s my responsibility to take good care of him.” After Cotton retired the only

batter he faced, junior Nick Goody entered to get the final two outs. Goody made quick work of the Tulane hitters, striking out both with a total of eight pitches. “If we play like that on a consistent basis with that kind of pitching,” Mainieri said, “we’ll have a chance to do something special.”

would have thrown in a regular situation. The play demonstrated his knowledge of the scenario, his ability to think on the run and his defining assuredness in his skills, he said. “I feel like I have a very good football mind,” Mettenberger said. “I may not be able to do arithmetic or stuff like that, but I can go out there and digest the X’s and O’s of the offense and defense really easily.” After the initial practices of the spring, junior linebacker Kevin Minter said he can tell Mettenberger has been breaking down tape in the film room. “He’s making reads I’ve never seen him make before,” Minter said. “He’s improved all around,

and I’m really excited about how this season’s going to end up.” Mettenberger said he knows he has the tools. Now, it seems he knows what it takes to step up as the singular head of an offense that has previously been divided in its leadership. “I know he’s ready to step up in his role,” Beckham said. “He’s got an arm. He can throw the ball around, and I think we’re going to have a good year.”

METTENBERGER, from page 5

he’s now bringing to the field. “He’s definitely changed,” said sophomore receiver Odell Beckham Jr. “He used to be really goofy and playful, and now he’s starting to take this more serious, like this is a job.” Mettenberger’s carefree nature has gotten him into some trouble in the past. The unfortunate circumstances that placed him at LSU are no secret. It’s well known that he was kicked off the Georgia squad in April 2010 after being arrested for underage consumption of alcohol and sexual battery after an incident at a Remerton, Ga., bar. But after enrolling at Butler, he completed 58.9 percent of his passes for 2,678 yards, 32 touchdowns and four interceptions to lead the Grizzlies to the Junior College National Championship game and become the No. 1 JUCO quarterback of the 2011 class. Mettenberger said he realizes his potential and has shifted his focus in order to embrace this second chance. “It’s just realizing who I am, who I represent,” Mettenberger said. “I represent my name, my family and LSU. I just have to think of that more than I used to.” Mettenberger knows he’s talented and knows that this exuberant confidence, combined

with his previous indiscretions, is sometimes construed as arrogance. “I do feel like I’m a very confident person,” Mettenberger said. “You have to be confident in yourself to play the game of football. You look at the Tyrann Mathieus all the way back to Deion Sanders, there’s a fine line between cocky and confidence, and you’ve got to flirt with that line sometimes to be a good football player.” Last season, Mettenberger took a bootleg on a run intended for then-freshman running back Terrence Magee 25 yards to the one-yard line in the waning minutes of a 52-3 victory against Ole Miss. Some viewed it as bucking LSU coach Les Miles’ play call. Mettenberger said he was

actually protecting his teammate while respecting the play call, pulling down the ball where he

In a night filled with drama and a soundtrack mirroring that of a boxing heavyweight title bout, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum duked it out in the heavily contested Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses. Although there was light voter turnout across the board, Romney was able to use his campaign’s superior organization and support of an especially deeppocketed super PAC to pick up victories in Massachusetts, Virginia and Vermont early on. The biggest contest of the day was seen in Ohio, with Romney and Santorum going

toe-to-toe attempting to gain support of the conservative voters across the Buckeye State. Santorum had a strong showing among socially conservative voters, taking Oklahoma and Tennessee, but was partially hindered in Ohio by his campaign’s failure to complete the required paperwork in three of the state’s congressional districts – putting as many as 18 delegates in jeopardy. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich won handily in his home state of Georgia but failed to compete in the remaining states on Tuesday’s slate. Gingrich predicted a third comeback for his campaign following the victory, but it’s highly unlikely that his message will resonate outside of his backyard. Texas Rep. Ron Paul earned minimal delegates and failed to gain any victories as the poll

numbers began rolling in, though Alaska and Ohio remain undetermined as of press time. The outcomes of Super Tuesday do little to end the race for the Republican nomination, but it clearly brought us closer to a twocandidate race between Romney and Santorum – a prospect many have ultimately declared. Gingrich vowed to carry on until the end, declaring Tuesday’s outcomes to be a success on his campaign trail, but many are beginning to see the inevitability of Gingrich’s demise. Romney had won five consecutive contests going into Tuesday, and continued to build on that momentum as the race moved forward. The biggest platform of the day was the state of Ohio, with Romney opening his attacks and his wallet — putting together a

and others rather than being sitting ducks. I have a concealed handgun license (CHL) from Texas and I have never met another holder who would draw their firearm without justification. Just remember, ‘When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.’” - Raymond Andrews

now and shooting? - Nothing. Carrying has huge responsibilities and when one takes the course to get the permit, that is made blatantly apparent. If you slip up once, your right to carry is taken away and legal action is taken. CHL holders are actually about 5 times less likely to commit a crime than a non-permit holder. I believe anyone who has gone through the trouble to get the permit should be able to defend themselves anywhere. This is strictly for defense of yourself and those immediately around you, not for you to “play” police and look for the bad guy running around with your handgun. Be smart and responsible if you carry. - Anonymous

$4 million blitz of negative ads against rival Rick Santorum. No Republican nominee has reached the White House without carrying the state of Ohio, and it was clear that the biggest emphasis was placed on the state. With poll numbers still rolling in for several states as of press time, the momentum can be seen snowballing on both sides, but it will be tough for any candidate to keep up with the resources and firepower that Romney’s campaign holds. It’s safe to say that anything can happen, but with the advantage in funds and organization I don’t see Romney giving any more ground to Santorum or Gingrich. Contact Matthew Westfall at

Consider the meaning of religious actions during Lent season THE NEW FRONTIERSMAN clAyton crockett Opinion Editor I remember taking part in Lent as a child. Raised Catholic, educated Catholic and formerly Catholic, I can recall my childhood penances: sodas, video games, biting my fingernails or “asking too many questions,” as my teachers may have said. Surely, God understood the magnitude of these feats. But I find the application of the annual Lenten penance to be far broader than the Catechism would suggest. According to Catholic teaching, Lent is a time of repentance and sacrifice — or more specifically, self-denial — to prove the sincerity of your regret. But like all apostolic teachings which ask anything of the constituency, the “reason for the season” has been distorted under the warped glass of inconvenience. It boils down to intentions. Are you eating less to suffer or to fit into that size-two dress? Are you exercising for purification and health or to be sexually attractive to the girls on spring break? I always appreciated the Apostle James’ logic in Bible verse James 2:17, which reads: “Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” What James suggests is that just as intentions without actions are useless, so too are actions with no intentions, and his logic is astute regardless of one’s faith — or lack thereof, in my case. It’s the difference between doing something because you have to rather than because you

care. Wanting to help others does not merit the praise of doing so just as wanting to succeed does not merit success. But given the massive ideological shifts of the Christian faith over the past few decades, one can no longer pigeonhole Lent under the Catholic masthead. Numerous Christian denominations and followers have also used Lent for self-improvement, but the question remains: Are you doing it for you, or for faith? While some readers may immediately have thought “faith,” the correct answer should be both, for if faith is something you care about, then acting on its behalf should please you as it would God. And this circles back to Ms. Size Two and Mr. Beach Body: There’s nothing wrong with acting on rational self-interest. The only problem would be if your actual interests were incongruous with your proclaimed interests, and that’s why I write about Lent like an ornery neighbor across the fence — or religious divide. It’s a strange feeling, being an atheist writing about the authenticity of faith, but even though I disagree with the logic of the matter, it’s not faith I’m looking for nor judging by. It’s integrity. Any nonbeliever should be able to respect the religious just as the religious should be able to respect the nonbeliever. Traits like honesty, courage and integrity have no religious implications or barriers. British Renaissance man Stephen Fry put it beautifully: “It would be impertinent and wrong of me to express any antagonism toward any individual

LACYE BEAUREGARD / The Daily Reveille

who wishes to find salvation in whatever form they wish to express it. That to me is sacrosanct as much as any article of faith is sacrosanct to anyone of any church or any faith in the world.” So whether you’ve given up Facebook, candy or masturbation should mean nothing to anyone else so long as you frame it honestly and earnestly. Don’t complain about your penance if you’ve taken one, for

it becomes obvious that faith has nothing to do with the matter. Everyone should act on their own interest, faithful or not — with the obvious caveat of acts which infringe on the rights of others. But Libertarianism is only the secular version of the Golden Rule. You should be doing it for yourself. If you claim to be religious, pleasing God should please you

as acting on behalf of my philosophy pleases me. Clayton Crockett is a 20-year-old international studies sophomore from Lafayette. Follow him on Twitter @TDR_ccrockett.

Experiments suggest the wealthy are more likely to cheat SHOCKINGLY SIMPLE

Andrew Shockey Columnist Money might buy a legal team, but it can’t buy a conscience. A set of experiments conducted at the University of California, Berkeley suggests wealthier individuals are more likely to cheat, lie and break the law than their less wealthy counterparts. There’s an obvious philosophical disconnect between capitalist Wall Street and the more socialist Occupy movement, but I believe much of the ill will levied against the financial elite is in reaction to the personal behavior and attitudes that capitalist ideals promote. Unfortunately, being a good capitalist often puts one at odds with being a good person.

Obviously, people have different qualifications for being a good person, but most include concepts of honesty, fairness, charity and empathy. Many of these concepts conflict with capitalist ideals that encourage us to look out for our own self-interest at all costs. The Berkeley experiments offer a glimpse of some of these behaviors. One experiment asked subjects to roll a computerized dice and report their scores afterward. Higher scores would result in more chances of winning a $50 Amazon gift card. Unbeknownst to the subjects, the game was rigged, with everyone’s rolls adding up to 12. Subjects who reported income greater than $150,000 per year were more likely to claim a score of at least 12 than their less wealthy counterparts. This experiment offers an interesting perspective on the

actions of the wealthy, but determining the exact causes and motivation of this behavior is difficult. I wouldn’t be surprised if economics and business professors praised the cheaters from the dice game since they were potentially gaining a financial advantage over their competitors. This kind of thinking creates a rift between the financial elite and the less wealthy. The experiment suggests those with lower incomes tend to place a higher value on personal honesty while more of the rich are willing to trade their integrity for cash. Individuals with lower incomes might also be more concerned with being caught cheating. It’s no secret the wealthy have access to better legal representation, and often the threat of a high-priced legal team can prevent

arrests even in everyday crimes like shoplifting. This legal inequality might be responsible for the wealthy’s above-average cheating rate. Illegal business practices are often even easier to get away with as long as the crime carries no risk of jail time. Monetary fines are a terrible way to discourage unethical or illegal business practices because as long as breaking the law makes enough to pay off the fine and still turn a profit the fine is treated as just another cost of doing business. Traffic tickets are similarly ineffective against the wealthy. While $100 or $200 could mean a family can’t pay rent this month, it’s only a minor inconvenience to the extremely wealthy. In Finland and some other European countries, speeding fines are proportional to the offenders’

income rather than a flat rate as in the U.S. Last year, a man was fined about $200,000 for speeding, but he also made more than $11 million in 2002. A proportional fine system makes sure the rich are deterred from breaking the law — just like the rest of us. Some may think a proportional fine system is unfair to the wealthy, but for someone like Mitt Romney — who made $21.7 million in 2010 — you’ll have a hard time convincing him with a $200 fine since he makes roughly that every five minutes of his life.

Lloyd said most of the students he sees on a regular basis are able to stay disciplined through the Lenten season. “Toward the end, discipline may dwindle a bit,” he said. “But they seem very strong.” Many people feel their strength begin to waver toward the end of the season, and Lloyd said they must persevere to better their relationships with God. “If I give up chocolate, after three weeks I’m starting to really want an M&M,” he said. “That’s really where God comes in.” Brian Baudoin, political science and disaster management senior, said he’s had trouble staying disciplined in the past. Baudoin, who gave up electronics and video games for the season, said he’s trying to be more proactive this year and stay strong throughout the season. “In past years, as it got closer to Easter, I was just waiting for

a spot. The appearance would be LSU’s 21st all-time appearance and first since 2010. LSU will discover its seed in the NCAA Tournament when the field of 64 is announced March 12. The Lady Tigers are hosting the first and second rounds in the

PMAC and will play at either 4 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. on March 18.

Longo said her advice for new runners is to stay dedicated. “Just getting out there is the hardest part,” she said. “A lot of people get discouraged that they can’t run very far, but being dedicated definitely helps.” Longo said she could barely run a mile when she set foot on the University’s campus, but just completed a half-marathon in New Orleans last weekend. “Doing races is so rewarding,” she said. “It’s just a great experience.” She said the weekly run is a way to get to know other runners in the area. Josh Melder and Micah Fincher, 2011 Paul M. Hebert Law Center graduates, said they enjoy running with the club because it combines two of their favorite pastimes — running and drinking. “We run so we can drink,” Fincher said.

The two said they have many friends in the club and enjoy getting to know the Baton Rouge community. “It’s a good way to exercise and a good reason to be downtown,” Fincher said. “It really gives you a sense of community.” And the runs aren’t limited to people. Alumni Ellen Loe and Cody Breaud often bring their 8-monthold lab-terrier mix Annie out for runs. Breaud said he uses the weekly event as exercise for the excitable puppy, but it’s often difficult to run alongside her. “She stops to visit people,” he said. “And she sniffs everything. It’s not easy to run with an untrained dog.”

Lent to end,” he said. “Now I’m trying to use my time for prayer.” Baudoin said his newfound strength came from a startling realization. “God sees the heart,” he said. “He sees what sacrifices are empty.” Lloyd said the church expects its members to observe Lent with three things: penance, prayer and almsgiving. “Hopefully you can connect all three of those,” he said. He said students should use the time they save through penance or sacrifice to pray and do service to become closer to God. English junior Erica deVeer said she’s trying to go above and beyond this year. In addition to giving up sweets and coffee, deVeer committed to praying the rosary every day and going to confession every week. She’s also trying to participate more actively in Mass. “If possible, I kneel on the floor instead of on the kneelers,”

she said. “If it hurts my knees, it helps remind me of what Christ went through for me.” But staying strong isn’t always easy for students. Biology junior Angelica Simmons gave up dessert for Lent. Simmons said she sometimes finds herself getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of the week and forgets to maintain her commitment. “In the craziness of student life, it can be challenging to remember something like that,” she said. “But it’s not a small thing. It’s important.” Baudoin said students should surround themselves with people who are positive and supportive to help them stay focused. “I’ve found the people happiest during Lent are the ones whose friends have all given up the same thing,” he said. “It really helps.”

SUPERSTORM SANDY’S INTENSITY LESSENING Hazardous weather conditions in Michigan from the remnants of Superstorm Sandy, including high wind speeds, freezing rain and some flooding along Michigan’s western coast were at their worst Tuesday, and will continue to taper off in the following days. Meteorologist Ernie Ostuno of the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids said the system is weakening now and that its effects seem to be moving away from Michigan. “We’re pretty much done with the heavy stuff,” Ostuno said. Ostuno said the National Weather Service canceled its wind advisory for the Lansing area at about 4 p.m. There was some damage along the west coast of Michigan, where there were power outages and some tree limbs down. Superstorm Sandy also is dying down in eastern states, although there still are some wind gusts and flooding. MSU alumna Megan Durisin, a former State News employee who currently is studying at New York University, said her apartment in Manhattan had no power or water Tuesday. Durisin said the worst of the storm seemed to be on Monday night around 9 p.m., when her windows were shaking from heavy winds. “There were still some people on the streets, and when cops were going by, you could hear them tell the people (that) they need to get indoors right away.” When she went to bed Monday night, the city was dark as far as she could see south; it was odd, she said, because the streets never are deserted. She said it rained most of

MSU hockey emphasizes family ties Two MSU freshmen follow in footsteps of professionally-playing fathers, MSU assistant coach By Alyssa Girardi THE STATE NEWS ■■

On June 16, 1998, the Stanley Cup entered Washington, D.C., as game four of the final round of t he N H L playoffs stood ready. For the Washington CapiKrygier tals, it was the fi rst time the 24-yearold franchise made it to the Stanley Cup fi nals, and the odds proved greatly against them. The Detroit Red Wings led the Capitals three games to zero, and with that summer night came a sweep of the home team, as the Red Wings picked up its second Stanley Cup in two seasons with a 4-1 defeat over Washington. As the ceremony came to a close, three particular players entered the Capitals’ locker room for the final time together — never imagining their lives would lead them back together. Fourteen years later and to the excitement of the MSU hockey program, their paths crossed again.

Freshman forward David Bondra skates on the ice during the game against Niagara on Oct. 20 at Munn Ice Arena. The Spartans tied the Purple Eagles 3-3.

New beginnings This summer, freshmen David Bondra and Brock Krygier stepped onto MSU’s campus, eager for the journey ahead of them. Both currently are members of the MSU hockey team — Bondra a forward and Krygier a defenseman. “I’ve always wanted to play college hockey, since I was younger it’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” Bondra said

at MSU hockey media day. “I’ve loved (MSU) from the start, from what the coaches showed me, the rink, the locker room, the school aspect is great — I’m a big believer in academics as well as hockey.” Although the two entered MSU unfamiliar with what to expect, they have deep roots with one of their assistant coaches, as Kelly Miller remembers them when they only were young kids.


Capital achievement Miller was a forward on the 1997-98 Washington team that was defeated by the Red Wings in the Stanley Cup finals. After more than 15 professional seasons and more than 1,000 games, that game was Miller’s last playoff game as a Capital. Alongside him that night stood forwards Peter Bondra and Todd Krygier, his longtime teammates and fathers to David Bondra and Brock Krygier. “Both were great hockey play-

ers, both outstanding people, both great teammates,” Miller said. “I was just very fortunate to play with both of them for a long time, (we) played on some really great teams together. I think that’s the really great thing about sports because you get to really know people when

you’re playing on a team … I’m very fortunate to get to know them both very well.” Peter Bondra was an NHL hockey player for 17 seasons, 14 with the Capitals and nine with Miller as his teammate. See HOCKEY on page 2 X


Tides turn in Spartan pride for Maxwell BOARD OF TRUSTEES APPROVE $6.8 MILLION ROADS PROJECT By Jesse O’Brien

Andrew Maxwell has been no stranger to criticism in the midst of his first season under center as the starter for MSU. It’s been a turbulent season for the Spartans (5-4 overall, 2-3 Big Ten), and as is the trend, most of the blame has been directed at the junior quarterback. However, after Maxwell led the Spartans down the field twice at the end of Saturday’s 16-13 overtime win

The roundabout is expected to be replaced and the intersection would have two traffic lights to increase the safety of the area. “The roundabouts (on campus), especially that one at Bogue Street and Shaw Lane, have been a worrisome situation,” Nestle said. “With the high volume of vehicles and … See CAMPUS on page 2 X
