Students offer time, money Students tan to prepare for beach-filled break during break to serve others By Kellie Rowe

Journalism senior Alexandra Beshara gets her tanning in after a run Tuesday afternoon at Bronze Bay Tanning, 617 E. Grand River Ave. “Before spring break it gets really packed, especially when everyone gets out of class in the afternoon, so I usually come in the morning when no one’s here,” Beshara said.

Instead of partying in tropical destinations this spring break, some students are opting to serve communities and engage in self-reflection as a participant of an alternative spring break program. MSU has several different programs aiming to provide opportunities for students to travel, nationally and internationally, during the course of the spring break holiday. International relations senior and Alternative Spartan Break, ASB, program coordinator Liz Starke said ASB has more than 20 trips this year, costing $450 for domestic travel and $1,250 for international. Because of fundraising efforts, Starke said many students fi nd this affordable. “All of our prices include everything for the entire week, food, lodging, plane (and) gas,” she said. Starke said the most rewarding thing about alternative programs is the ability to give back to a struggling community. “What I would emphasize is the transformation we see of students who enter the program,” Starke said. “It shows students they can make a difference in their everyday lives.” Political theory and constitutional democracy senior and an ASB site leader Ashley Hall said this is her fi rst time as a site

leader with ASB, but has previously gone on a similar trip to Jersey City, N.J., with the Spartan Christian Fellowship. There she worked in a school with underprivileged kids. She said her experiences there were eye-opening, and since then, she has continued to stay involved in service programs. “It was really just an eyeopening experience,” Hall said. “Living with people who live below the poverty line.” Hall said it’s not just acknowledging the issues and realizing that they happen, it’s understanding why they happen. “(You) don’t wear flashy jewelry around them,” Hall said. “Young, privileged white kids don’t realize how much we show our wealth everyday (simply) with the clothes we wear.” Hall said she prefers to go someplace and perform service work instead of going someplace to party. “I like the idea of becoming a part of a community, rather than partying and leaving a place worse than (when) you (arrived),” said Hall. Journalism sophomore and ASB participant Karina Coateston said she would recommend anyone to take at least one trip while in school. “I think everyone should go at least one time,” Coateston said. “It’s life changing, I probably would have never done (the) things that I did on the trip.”

SPRING BREAK SAVINGS

Looking for a cheap getaway? State News blogger Julie VerHage has helpful tips for finding your ultimate Spring break destination vacation.

Kathleen Webb has been a loyal customer at her favorite tanning salon for six years. A regular at Bronze Bay Tanning Salon, 109 E. Grand River Ave., — the only tanning salon she’s ever been to in East Lansing — the physiology senior said this spring break season, she’s looking forward to hitting the salon before she hits the beach. “I’ll have a great base tan for spring break, and I won’t burn when I’m out,” she said. Webb is one of the many students on campus who utilize the tanning salons spotted across East Lansing and the Lansing area, especially during the weeks before spring break. Doug Winkler, owner of two Tanzmania salons, 3340 Lake Lansing Road and 300 N. Clippert St., in Lansing, said business picks up significantly in the weeks before spring break. “We have an awful lot (of students) who come in and get ready for their trip,” he said. “But there’s a number of students who might not be going away, so they stay and tan.” After the students are done with their spring break vacations, Winkler said his business rises again later in the month. “Workers and professionals get ready for their spring breaks in April and May, so there’s a whole other second wave,” he said. B i o c h e m i s t r y s e n io r Andrew Izzo said each year he and his friends start a serious pre-spring break regime to prepare them for the vacation, which includes working out and tanning once a week. “It’s relaxing and warm,” he said. “It’s a preview of what it’s going to be like on

spring break when you can sit out in the sun and relax.” For Webb, she said her tanning schedule before spring break is just as intricate. “I usually start tanning a few months before spring break, going once a week in the beginning and then two or three times a week the closer it gets,” she said. “I also start with the standard bed and work up to

the higher strength ones.” Webb said she enjoys the extended hours before spring break — 24 hours a day — so her tanning salon can meet students’ demands. Since Michigan usually lacks sun this time of year, Webb said she’s always been a fan of tanning. “I like tanning, especially in the winter,” she said. “It gives me the Vitamin D I need, which

keeps me in a happier mood.” After students are back in East Lansing, and school is in session, Winkler said he notices a consistent amount of business. “Even after spring break is done, we will get a lot of those people who want to feel good until the weather gets nice again,” he said. “We stay pretty busy right through.”

As a travel expert for STA Travel, 207 E. Grand River Ave., Tamara Hewlett can predict when large amounts of students will come in to plan a spring break vacation. “When it would start snowing, I would say, ‘Okay, I know we’re going to get spring break bookings today,’ and we would,” Hewlett said. STA Travel employee and MSU alumna Hewlett said despite the recent economy, spring break bookings have actually increased. “More (students) budget for it, and they realize if they’re going to graduate soon, it’s a good rite of passage — going on spring break with your friends.” Hewlett said. Assistant professor of commercial recreation and tourism Dan

McCole said this could be attributed to people’s tendency to prioritize leisure activities when money is low. Price can cause a change in plans when students request places such as Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, Hewlett said. Currently, the most commonly booked spring breaks for MSU students include Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and Caribbean cruises. “The theme this year has just been warm,” she said. Hewlett said factors such as price, climate and the availability of all-inclusive packages often help shape the plans of students hoping to travel. While students can book international spring break vacations for about $1,200 through STA Travel, some students, such as freshman Ivory Ativie, simply decide to go home. “It was just assumed (I would

go home),” the biomedical laboratory science major said. Ativie said if she were to do something special for spring break, it would be a form of volunteer work. “I feel like my time should be better spent — helping others,” she said. But students such as Ativie might be in the minority, as many consider the party atmosphere often associated with spring break to be a rite of passage. “We typically do get a couple larger groups a year of upperclassman that want to do a big spring break, kind of a last hurrah,” said Hewlett. “But we get a big mix of people (going on a

spring break trip).” For interdisciplinary studies in social science sophomore Vayla Rusakova, domestic beaches, such as those in San Diego, are just as good as international beaches. “I wanted to visit (a friend) and relax,” Rusakova said. “I’ve always wanted to see (San Diego).” While resorts such as those in the Dominican Republic might be going fast, Hewlett said she didn’t think it would matter to students. “Most students in general are happy as long as they have a nice beach and it’s warm,” Hewlett said.

When chemical engineering junior Crystal Alton travels to Brunswick, Ga., for the High Tide Ultimate Frisbee Tournament in March, she’s going to look good. “You gotta be cute for all the men ultimate frisbee players,” Alton said. “There are a lot of them.” Alton is one of the many students who set out to find the perfect items for their spring break trip, which is why downtown East Lansing businesses see a spike in foot traffic during the weeks before spring break. “Last year I definitely saw a trend during the three weeks leading up to spring break,” said Kayla Holcomb, the manager at La Bodega, 619 E. Grand River Ave., where Alton plans to buy a dress for her vacation. “We sell so many kinds of dresses and sarongs that are perfect for (spring break). Girls who come in here really stock up.” Holcomb said she always makes sure they have a variety of new inventory in the weeks prior to spring break so that shoppers can have a lot to choose from. Other downtown East Lansing shops, such as American Apparel, do the same. “I know it’s difficult to fi nd swim stuff in February for spring break,” said Lindsey Rank, the manager of American Apparel. “So this year we plan on expanding our spring section in February for customers who are looking for spring break items.” American Apparel is one of the few stores on Grand River Avenue where shoppers can find swimwear. But the managers at Moosejaw, 555 E. Grand River Ave., which sells only men’s bathing suits, are trying to change this because they see business pick up in the weeks

before spring break, especially in men’s swimwear. Moosejaw assistant manager Lindsey Santola said she sees many students come into Moosejaw prior to spring break not only for warm weather items but also for alternative break purchases like backpacks and hiking boots. “It’s an exciting time,” Santola said. “People are actually getting ready for summer, and it’s not so depressing with all the dark colors.” Richard Liscombe, the manager of Footgear, 108 Division St., agreed. “I’m always excited,” Liscombe said. “We get a lot of sales for people who are going away — partially because of spring break and partially because people are anticipating spring. Everyone is always enthusiastic about winter being over.” Liscombe said he sees the biggest increase in sales of sports sandals, Birkenstocks, flip-flops and Sperry Top-Siders. Although some students, such as Alton, will choose to make their purchases on Grand River Avenue this spring, not all students are as enthusiastic about shopping in downtown East Lansing. “I do my shopping online or at Meridian Mall,” accounting junior Fangfei Li said. “It’s too cold on Grand River.” Li, who is going on an alternative spring break in Tennessee, said she will most likely do her shopping on websites like 6pm. com or juicy.com. Still, shoppers and store employees alike are eager for the spring shopping season to begin. “Spring break is great because you get to get out of sweaters and warm pants,” Rank said. “Those who are traveling go out and buy new outfits because it’s an exciting time. They want new things to experience the weather in.”


8 Spring break guide | TH E STATE NE WS | WEDN ESDAY, FEB R UA RY 1, 2012 | STATE N E WS.COM WORD ON THE STREET What are the benefits of not going anywhere during spring break? In case you missed it …

“(It) can save ... money, and you have time to relax. You can spend time with family where you usually don’t have time with them.” Julie Wylie Elementary Education senior

“The benefits of staying would be saving money and relaxing instead of planning stuff.” Chris Ross Social Relation and Policy sophomore

“You don’t have to work out and get in shape. You also save money while missing sunburns and raccoon eyes.” Rachel Mika Supply Chain Management senior

“The benefits of staying home would be being able to work 40 hours a week and making money.” Tracy Mckeller Hospitality Business junior

“You save money by not going anywhere. If I stayed I would get to hang out with my roommate more and not take time off of work.”

Spring break is scheduled for the week of March 3. Students have many options to consider when planning their break. For some, it is a time to catch rays in the tropics, while others use it as an opportunity to give back to a community in need. Whatever the plan may be, it is a much needed break from studies for everyone.

Study Abroad programs are popular for MSU students, but for some who can’t spare a summer, there is another option. MSU offers programs during spring break, both domestically and internationally, which range in popularity among students, according to course organizers. Within the U.S., the College of Natural Science offers two Study Away programs — Forensic Entomology in Gainesville, Fla., and Science Behind the Scenes at Walt Disney World and SeaWorld in Orlando, Fla. Internationally, the Office of Study Abroad offers opportunities for students to travel to Costa Rica, Mexico and Nicaragua. This is the third year Ryan Kimbirauskas, board-certified forensic entomologist and professor in the Center for Integrated Studies, has traveled with students to Florida to study forensic entomology. “The primary theme is investigating and learning how insects are associated with crimi-

nal investigation, much like what you would see on ‘CSI’ or ‘Bones,’” Kimbirauskas said. “The final examination involves being assigned to a crime scene and using insects to estimate time of death.” Fisheries and wildlife sophomore Jon Busken is going on the trip and said it will be a good experience. “It’s a really cool opportunity because it is a week long and an opportunity to earn three credits that go toward my major,” Busken said. There currently are eight students signed up for the trip out of 20 spots, which is less than years past, Kimbirauskas said. “That is fewer than I was expecting,” Kimbirauskas said. “We have taken 18 and 16 the last two years.” The Walt Disney World and SeaWorld trip to see the Science Behind the Scenes has been a popular destination, said Larry Besaw, a professor in the Department of Entomology. Students get to see the operations of Disney World, including going underneath Magic Kingdom

in the tunnels where cast members work. Chemistry junior Amy Pochodylo had a great experience on the trip in 2010. “Disney World is one of those places that you idolize as a kid, and getting to go behind the scenes and learn more about it was a pretty cool experience, it’s a childhood dream come true,” Pochodylo said. Another program travels to Nicaragua. Students get to visit the rainforest and observe different plants, animals and culture, said Gerald Urquhart, assistant professor in Lyman Briggs College and Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. Only seven students are enrolled to attend compared to an average of 10 to 20 students in the past, he said. “Students try to figure out how people live on a dollar a day because a large portion of the world’s population is living on a dollar a day or less,” Urquhart said. “We have students each get one dollar and go to the local market and try to figure out how to purchase enough food to get enough calories.”

As students depart for spring break vacations, crime at on- and off-campus housing remains active. Though students are gone, the MSU and East Lansing police departments receive calls and complaints of break-ins and theft during the holiday. “We do get reports when students return of items stolen (from dorm rooms,)” MSU police Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor said. “Not as much as Christmas break because spring break is shorter, but it does still happen.” McGlothian-Taylor said students should double check that doors are locked and rooms are secure before leaving for spring break, including mak ing sure that windows are secure within residence halls and apartments on campus. She recommended that stu-

dents take all valuables with them when departing. “Make sure that your doors are locked and that you talk to your suitemates to make sure they are locking their doors before they leave, too.” McGlothian-Taylor said. East Lansing police Capt. Kim Johnson said off-campus housing has a fair share of break-ins during spring break, even though the city is pretty quiet with the absence of students. “(Students) should lock their doors and keep a few lights on a timer,” Johnson said. “Anything you can do to make the house or apartment look like it’s being lived in.” Johnson recommended asking a neighbor who’s staying in town during break to keep an

eye on students’ residences and make sure no suspicious activity occurs. He suggested keeping valuables out of sight at a neighbor’s house. “In any case, (students) should reduce the opportunities for people that steal and people that commit crimes,” Johnson said. Advertising junior Leah Cranston said she is not taking any chances with theft or break-ins in her off-campus apartment during spring break. “I am taking all of my valuables home w it h me and shutting the blinds,” Cranston said. “My apartment has pretty heavy-duty locks that can only be opened electronically, so I don’t think anyone will be able to break in.”

Personal Safety The Tempe Police Departments, Crime Prevention Unit would like to provide you with 3 basic personal safety rules and the following crime prevention information: • Do stay alert. Keep your mind on your surroundings, who’s in front of you and who’s behind you. Don’t get distracted. If you’re worried about crime ask a friend to accompany you when you go out. • Do communicate the message that you’re calm, confident, and know where you’re going. Stand tall, walk purposefully, and make quick eye contact with people around you. • Do trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable in a place or situation…leave.

When Walking:

• Plan the safest route to your destination and use it. Choose well lit busy streets and avoid using vacant lots, alleys, or construction sites. Take the long way if it’s the safest. • Know your neighborhood. Find out what stores and restaurants are open late and where the police and fire stations are. • Carry your purse close to your body and keep a firm grip on it. Carry a wallet in an inside coat or side trouser pocket, not in a rear trouser pocket. • Don’t flaunt expensive jewelry or clothing. • Walk facing traffic so you can see approaching cars. • Don’t overburden yourself with packages and groceries that make it hard to react. • Bring “emergency” change for cab fare, bus fare, or a telephone call. • Have your car or house key in hand as you approach your vehicle or home. • If you suspect you’re being followed by someone on foot, cross the street and head for the nearest well lit, populated area. Walk quickly or run to a house or store to call police. • If you are being followed by someone in a car, change direction immediately and make a visible point of writing down the license number.

In Your Home:

• Keep your doors locked, even when you are home. • You should not automatically open your door when someone knocks, especially if you’re alone. Know who is outside – use the eyeviewer. • Keep your windows locked when you are away and while sleeping.

• When away or at home, draw your blinds or curtains to prevent prowlers from seeing your valuables. • Never remain in the laundry room in an apartment community alone. • Avoid dark places, short cuts, bushy trees, and sparsely traveled areas.

Stay safe while biking in traffic By Julie Deardorff Chicago Tribune Biking in traffic isn’t as treacherous as it might seem. Cyclists rarely get mowed down by motorists from behind _ a common fear _ and in fact, most accidents don’t involve motor vehicles at all. The more common threats are often found where you might least expect them: on car-free paths filled with distracted pedestrians, dog walkers, in-line skaters and cyclists with varying skill levels. Still, when bike riders do collide with a car, it’s often serious. In 2009, 630 U.S. cyclists were killed in crashes with motor vehicles, according to the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) (bicyclinginfo.org). Meanwhile, more than 500,000 cycling accidents result in a trip to the emergency room each year. Common sense is your best defense when riding the roads: Don’t ride drunk. One-third of all cycling fatalities involved a legally intoxicated cyclist, according to cycling attorney and cyclist Bob Mionske. Ride with traffic _ never against it _ as close as possible to the right. Don’t ride with headphones. Hearing the “click” of a car door could save you. If you’re still feeling anxious but want to reap the benefits of an efficient, inexpensive and healthy mode of transportation, here are some ways to reduce your risk of an accident:

Be Safe

Don’t hit the road without a helmet. Some suggest that helmeted riders take more risks. But head injuries are responsible for about three-quarters of deaths among bicyclists involved in crashes; wearing one can reduce the risk of a head or brain injury by approximately twothirds or more, according to a research review.

Be Predictable

Be predictable. Ride in a straight line _ and hold it while checking over your shoulder. Don’t weave in and out of cars. If there are potholes, the street isn’t wide enough to share safely

S T U D E N T S L I V I N G S A F E LY

or you see a row of parked cars, it may be safer to temporarily “take the lane,” or to boldly ride in the middle of the street, said Furia.

Be Seen

Be visible. Some evidence suggests that riding at night _ at least without a light _ is a factor in nearly half of all cycling fatalities, Mionske wrote in his book, “Bicycling & The Law.” (bicyclelaw.com) To reduce your risk, limit riding to daylight hours and wear fluorescent colors to increase the distance that drivers can see you. Use white lights in the front and red in the rear, as well as reflectors and reflective clothing. By law, you must ride with a light at night; if you flout this, you could be liable for your injuries, according to Mionske.

Be Vigilant

Anticipate accidents. “Assume that the car coming in the opposite direction will turn left in front of you, and be prepared to slow down to avoid it,” said David Scharff, an internist at Mercy Hospital in Baltimore. “Know where the car behind you is, so when you move out to avoid the pothole or rain grate or parked car opening its door, you have plenty of room to glide in front of the car or behind the car to take up the lane,” said Scharff, who is also a bike racer and commuter. “Don’t get yourself pinned in.” For information on the Tempe City Codes involving bicycles visit our website at: http:// www.tempe.gov/citycode/07Bicycles.htm For information on Arizona State Codes involving bicycles visit: http://www.azleg.state. az.us/ArizonaRevisedStatutes.asp?title=28feet before turning.

Help Eliminate Auto Theft Professional thieves can steal any car, but make them work for yours. To prevent thefts, the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) and the Arizona Automobile Theft Authority recommends “Layered Protection.” The more layers of protection on your vehicle, the more difficult it is to steal. The number of layers your vehicle needs varies depending on your vehicle and geographic location. Your budget and personal preferences should determine which anti-theft device is best for you.

Layer #1 -- Common Sense

An unlocked vehicle with a key in the ignition is an open invitation to any thief, regardless of which anti-theft device you use. The common sense approach to protection is the simplest and most cost-effective way to thwart would-be thieves. • Lock your car - half of all vehicles stolen are left unlocked • Take your keys - nearly 20% of all vehicles stolen have the keys in them • Park in well-lit areas - car thefts occur at night more than half the time • Park in attended lots - car thieves do not like witnesses • Do not leave your vehicle running and unattended • Completely close your car windows • Do not leave valuables in plain view • Do not hide a spare set of keys in the car - the pros know where to look • If you have a garage, use it - when you do, lock both the vehicle and the garage door

Layer #2 -- Warning Device

The second layer of protection is a visible or audible device which alerts thieves that your vehicle is protected. Popular second layer devices include: • Audible alarms • Steering wheel locks • Steering column locks • Brake locks • Tire locks • Watch Your Car decals • Identification markers in or on vehicle • Protective Window Laminate • Microdots applied to various surfaces on vehicle, which are imprinted with identifica-

tion information. • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) etching on vehicle windows.

Layer #3 -- Immobilizing Device

This third layer of protection is a device which prevents thieves from bypassing your ignition and hot-wiring the vehicle. Some electronic devices have computer chips in ignition keys. Other devices inhibit the flow of electricity or fuel to the engine until a hidden switch or button is activated. Popular third layer devices include: • Smart keys • High security locks & keys • Fuse cut-offs • Kill switches • Starter, ignition and fuel disablers

Layer #4 -- Tracking Device

The final layer of protection is a tracking device which emits a signal to a police or monitoring station when the vehicle is reported stolen. Tracking devices are very effective in helping authorities recover stolen vehicles.

Fire Safety The Tempe Fire Department is concerned about your safety both on and off campus. When choosing off-campus housing, insure that fire safety plays a role in your efforts to choose an apartment, just as you consider crime prevention issues. Since January of 2000, 100 students have died in campus-related fires in the United States, with almost 80 percent occurring in off-campus housing, according to Campus Firewatch, a monthly newsletter focusing on the complex issues of campus fire safety. Four factors have been identified in a number of the off-campus fires: • Lack of automatic fire sprinklers • Missing or disabled smoke alarms • Careless disposal of smoking materials • Impaired judgment from alcohol consumption With ASU being the largest university in the nation, we are not immune from the dangers of fire, as evidenced by two near tragic fires in off-campus housing during the 2006 fall semester. Some or all of the factors identified above were involved in the Tempe fires. One fire involved a condominium in which two students were physically rescued by firefighters and suffered severe smoke inhalation, requiring lengthy stays in the Maricopa County Hospital Burn Unit. In the second serious off-campus fire, one student was seriously injured when she was forced to jump from a second floor patio to escape the flames. There is a great deal of choice when it comes to selecting off-campus housing. Consider the added protection provided by automatic fire sprinklers. Know that smoke detectors are required in all rental housing units in Tempe, and ask that the unit be tested to insure that it is working before you select the apartment. Ask when the last fire inspection was done on the building and do not hesitate to ask to see the Fire Department’s Inspection Form so that you can be knowledgeable about any noted violations of the fire code.

Basic steps in fire safety include:

• Not sleeping in a building without a working smoke detector. • Know two ways out of any building that you are in, whether it is your house, apartment, theater or night club. • After a party, check seat cushions on couches and chairs for cigarettes that may be smoldering, and dispose of cigarette butts properly.

• Do not overload extension cords if may cause them to overheat. • Make sure you have a fire extinguisher and that you know how to use it. Additionally, you can call the Tempe Fire Department’s Fire Prevention and Public Fire Safety Education Division at 480-858-7200 for additional information and/or to ask for a fire inspection on your living unit at no cost. Choose and maintain a fire safe environment for your residence while attending Arizona State University.

The Dangers of Hoarding

The issue of residential hoarding is a real problem all around the Valley and Tempe Fire is reaching out to the community to raise awareness of this growing problem and to communicate that help is available. Tempe firefighters have experienced many cases of hoarding. It is a dangerous trend that risks the lives of firefighters and residents alike. People with friends or loved ones who may have a problem with hoarding can seek help from the Arizona Hoarding Task Force at 602-778-3363 or www.azhoarding.com. This collaboration of agencies provides links to research, support groups and personal organization services. Tempe residents also can find help through the city’s Care 7 Victim Assistance program at 480-350-8032 or www.tempe.gov/care7.

Be A Good Neighbor In an effort to create the best livable community, Arizona State University and the City of Tempe formed a partnership to provide ASU students with programs and services to enhance the quality of life.

Know Your Neighbors

When you make the decision to live off campus you have a responsibility to be a considerate neighbor. Introduce yourself to your neighbors and say hello when you see them. Exchange phone numbers in case of an emergency and ask your neighbors to watch your home when you are out of town.

Parties

Have respect for your neighbors’ right to peace and quiet. Let your neighbors know in advance if you plan to have a large party, and give them your telephone number so they can contact you in case your party becomes too loud. (Five or more guests is defined as a party by the City of Tempe Ordinance 5-30 through 5-35). Always clean up your trash and be sure that everyone present is 21 or older if alcohol is served.

Noise

Property owners and property managers will be notified of all noise and alcohol violations occurring on their properties. Property owners will have to make decisions when handling these violations. So don’t leave barking dogs outside and monitor noise levels including the volume of your stereo and TV.

Property Appearance

Property owners and tenants are responsible for bringing property into compliance. Failure to comply or repeated violations may result in legal recourse and a fine. (Tempe Nuisance and Property Enhancement Code). • Mow your lawn on a regular basis • Trim bushes and shrubs • Keep furniture inside and not on the porch • Put away your trash can after garbage collection • Do not overfill your trash can

Parking

Park your car facing the correct direction on the street and in appropriately marked spaces. Do not keep cars that do not run in your driveway and do not park in front of your neighbors’ houses. If your car needs repair, do not do maintenance on your car in your driveway or in the street.

Crime Prevention

Follow these suggestions to keep you and your vehicle safe: 1. Never leave keys in your vehicle. 2. Always lock your car doors. 3. Never leave valuable items in your car. 4. Park in well-lit areas. 5. Park in close proximity to your destination. For more information click on the Tempe Crime Prevention web site at www.tempe.gov/cpu.

Loud Party Concerns Tempe has a vitality that is unmatched in the valley. Arizona State University, Mill Avenue, and huge city sponsored events. Private parties are also frequent, as are noise complaints. The Tempe Police responded to over 8,000 loud party/noise complaints for the year 2004! These complaints often result in the person responsible for the party receiving a fine or a citation.

What is a “loud party”?

A loud party is a gathering that disturbs the peace of another. It does not actually have to be a traditional party to qualify. Parties often bring related problems such as noise complaints, loud vehicles and their stereos, neighborhood litter, and misbehavior such as urinating in public. The info below gives information on how loud parties are handled by the Tempe Police.

What to do if you are planning a party:

• Notify neighbors of the planned party. If the neighbors are not supportive, change the location or nature of the party. • Consider neighbors when planning your party. • Control who is invited and admitted to your party. • During your party, periodically check your neighborhood to correct problems. You may be responsible for what takes place off of your property as a result of your party. Pick up trash and correct any other problems. • If you lose control of your party, end it yourself. If you are unsuccessful in ending it, call the police. The police will assist you. • If the police show up at your party, fully cooperate with them. Your cooperation may keep you from getting fined or cited. • Do not mix alcohol and underage party attendees. The two do not go together, and could lead to civil and criminal consequences.

What to do when neighbors are planning a party:

• Express concerns early. When you discover a planned party for your neighborhood, discuss your concerns with the responsible person. • When you learn of a party call the Tempe Police non-emergency number and give the information to on-duty personnel. • If the party is going on and concern arises, contact the responsible person if you feel comfortable doing so.

NEIGHBORHOOD LIVING

• Be tolerant. Your ongoing relationship with your neighbor may be more important than a single event, even if your routine is challenged for one night. • If the property is a rental, notify the landlord yourself in writing. This assures the landlord knows what is happening. Rental properties are required by law to register with the Maricopa County Assessor’s Office. Their website is www.maricopa.gov/assessor.

When to call the police:

• When all else fails, call Tempe Police and report the disturbance. • If you are not willing to identify yourself or be listed as a victim in a police report, police will still respond, but the incident will be handled as a civil matter.

Other remedies:

If the residence you are calling about is an on going problem, there are other remedies that could solve the concerns. Several options include: • Refer ongoing problems to your area Crime Prevention officer. Your officer can be reached by calling (480) 858-6330 or by clicking on www.tempe.gov/cpu • Consider mediation. This is a free service through the City of Tempe’s Social Services Department. Set an appointment by calling (480) 350-2430. The website is www. tempe.gov/social services. Arizona State Law

Arizona State law states that a person commits the crime of Disorderly Conduct by making unreasonable noise that disturbs the peace and quiet of another person. (A.R.S. 13-2904) A person believed to have committed disorderly conduct may be arrested or cited. If found guilty, that person could be sentenced up to four months in jail and given a $750 fine for a first offense. To charge someone with Disorderly Conduct, the courts require that a citizen allow police to put his/her name in the police report and testify as a victim. No report will be taken if there is no victim.

Tempe Rental Housing Code Requirements Why a Rental Housing Code? - Degree of Consanguinity

While most property owners, landlords and property management companies do their best to maintain rental units in safe and healthy conditions, others may neglect needed repairs on their properties. Exterior conditions such as peeling paint, curling roof shingles and dead landscaping may have a negative effect on surrounding property values and breed apathy in a neighborhood. Interior conditions such as adequate cooling and heating, proper plumbing, and correct electrical connections are all necessary to secure the well-being and safety of the tenant. The City of Tempe’s Rental Housing Code was adopted in January 1998 to ensure that rental housing units, both single and multi-family units, remain free of deteriorated and slum-like conditions. The code was not designed to settle landlord-tenant disputes. This information is intended to provide a summary of Tempe’s Rental Housing Code requirements. For specific information or a complete copy of the Rental Housing Code, please contact, Neighborhood Enhancement at 480-350-8372 or visit www.tempe. gov/codee/.

ZDC defintion:

Family means: 1. One (1) or more persons related by the 3rd degree of consanguinity, adoption, marriage or as domestic partners as defined in Section 7-105, and not more than two (2) additional persons living together in a dwelling unit; or 2. Not more than three (3) persons who are not related by the 3rd degree of consanguinity, adoption, marriage or as domestic partners, living together in a dwelling unit.

The City of Tempe regulates the number of people that can legally occupy a property. In single family dwellings, more than three (3) people that are not related can not live together as a household. For more information please contact the Code Compliance office at 480-350-8076.

Safety and Security

For the purpose of safety and security, each and every rental unit within the City is required to meet the following minimum conditions: • Smoke Detectors are required in each unit and must be in working condition at all times. • Locking devises are required for exterior swinging or sliding doors, and on all win-

dows that are designed to be opened and are accessible from the outside. • Every principle entrance door must have an eye viewer or adjacent window, which allows a view of the area directly in front of the door. • In complexes of more than four units, public stairwells, parking lots, exterior entrances and postal box areas must meet specific lighting requirements for safety purposes. Call for specific information on these requirements.

Sanitary Facilities

Every rental housing unit must have sanitary facilities adequate for personal cleanliness, properly installed and maintained, including: Flush toilets, lavatory basins, bathtubs or showers, hot water service of at least 110 degrees, water-seal traps and a reasonable flow of water (not less than one gallon-per-minute).

Kitchen Areas

A kitchen sink, oven, stove, and refrigerator are all required and must be in sound condition. A reasonable flow of water and water-seal traps are required. Countertops, pantries and cupboards shall be free from holes, breaks or cracks and the surface must be easily cleanable.

Electrical, Lighting and Thermal Environment

Every habitable room shall have two outlets and either a permanent light fixture or a third outlet controlled by a wall switch. Permanent light fixtures are required in each laundry room, bathroom and kitchen. Permanently installed heating facilities, able to provide a temperature of at least 70 degrees, and cooling devices, able to provide adequate cooling (dependant upon the unit type) are required. No oven, stove, range or unvented combustion heater may be used for the purpose of heating a unit.

Doors, Windows, and Ventilation

Specific requirements for doors, windows and ventilation are enumerated in the Rental Housing Code. As a summary, each unit is required to have weather-tight exterior doors and windows that provide adequate light and ventilation. Any unit cooled by an evaporative cooler, which is not equipped with upducts, shall have at least one open able exterior opening that is screened. All screens must be in good condition, free from holes, tears or other imperfections.

Meet the ‘Parkies’:

College’s camper park offers unique, tight-knit community

By Tovin Lapan The Orange County Register SANTA CRUZ, Calif. _ Cloaked within a redwood grove on the north side of the University of California-Santa Cruz campus is a place that many students do not even know exists, but for others is the unique, picturesque and serene community where they bought their first home before they turned 21 _ the Camper Park. The students who live in the 42-space park choose to live here because they identify with the social environment and tight-knit, communal living. The residents sip morning tea together, help each other out with chores and maintenance, teach each other how to play instruments and other skills, and, in general, seem to be on the same wavelength. Just before noon Friday The Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine” seeped through the walls of the first camper on the circular road. The very next camper in the line was actually painted eggyolk yellow and had the words “We all live in a yellow submarine” written on the side. “I heard stories about this place from friends,” said Nate Kandus, a Santa Cruz student who lived in the park from 2007 to 2010 and was back visiting. “When I came up here I saw that it was purely magical. It’s an inspired, intentional community that allows for self exploration and growth for all its residents.” A stroll through the park reveals gardens, sculptures, piles of bike tires and colorfully decorated and painted campers in every shape and size, many of them with names on the exterior such as “The Glory Wagon” and “Creamcicle.” In the center of the park is a community area with laundry facilities, a kitchen, restrooms and showers. Every Wednesday and Sunday the residents hold a potluck dinner open to all comers. The residents call themselves “parkies,” and hold a “Trailer Park Olympics” every year, using unconventional competitions as an ice breaker. “The park is a really strong community,” said resident Caileen Brandt, 21, whose remark was echoed with a “Hell yea,” from fellow park resident Will Lee. “It’s like a co-op more than a dorm,” Brandt said. “It is mostly student run, and we are

responsible for our own community. We keep it clean and make sure we are responsible campus neighbors. If someone is causing problems, we will solve it as a community, but we may have to expedite them off the island.” The students also must be more self-reliant then they are in the dorms. “I would guess this is first home-owning opportunity for the students, and it’s a great experience for students to learn about the upkeep on a home,” said Jim Grove, assistant director of housing services and facilities. The trailers themselves are owned by the students, and most go for between $3,000 and $3,500 depending on their condition and included amenities such as bathrooms. Departing students sell their trailer to someone on the waiting list, typically for a few hundred dollars less than what they paid. Rent for the spaces is $500 a month, or $556 a month for those who need a sewer connection. The cheapest dorm rooms on campus cost about $800 per month after the included meal plan is subtracted. There is a waiting list to get into the camper park that typically has between 30 and 80 names on it depending on the time of year. “It is very popular among the portion of the student body who likes living in an alternative arrangement like that,” said Grove. “A lot of students, especially those new to campus, have no idea it’s there. It really is a hidden gem.”

Small spaces can host great gardens By Donna Birch McClatchy Newspapers MODESTO, Calif. — The garden that Shannon Mahaffey recently designed and planted is proof positive that good things really do come in small packages. Before she worked her garden mojo, the space was an empty little dirt plot surrounded by a wood fence on three sides. But in three days, the 14-year-old budding gardener transformed the space into a safari-themed oasis. She filled the plot with a number of plants: purple ornamental fountain grasses, crape myrtle, fuchsia, firetail, croton, agapanthus and other flora. She also carved out enough soil to add a tiny creek as a water feature and added large rocks and decorative bark to her design. And to really drive home the safari theme — as well as add some whimsy and enhance the garden’s appeal to children — Mahaffey added a couple of stuffed animals, a tiger and lion, the latter decked out in a safari hat and car — to the mix. The size of the space she had to work with? A minimal 10 feet by 10 feet. Mahaffey was among a number of people who created gardens from scratch around the floriculture building at the Stanislaus County Fairground in Turlock, Calif. The garden creators included individuals and groups such as local school-based chapters of FFA and 4-H. The plots the fair exhibitors had to work with were 10 by 10 feet and 10 by 20 feet, sizes much smaller than the average backyard. But with planning and a little elbow grease, garden creators were able to pack a lot of elements into their spaces.

Al Fresco For Two

Garden designer Christine Gemperle Bacon created an intimate, simple and elegant retreat in her 10-by-10 space. The theme was al fresco dining, so a cozy glass-topped table and two rattan chairs, set on top of a limestone patio with decorative gravel as a base, served as the focal point. Two potted dwarf Alberta spruce trees atop two small pieces of sod marked the entry to this space, encouraging visitors to come and sit a spell.

A hanging centerpiece of candles and ivory hovered above the table. The designer used several large pieces of travertine to create a retaining wall, which held a raised garden bed that included lavender, purple-leafed coleus and two corkscrew blue point juniper topiaries. Two side flower beds included rosemary, more lavender, orange, yellow and gold marigolds and zinnias, coral bells and Mexican sage, which sprouts long, narrow, purple flowerets (hummingbirds love this plant).

Zen-Inspired Serenity

Simplicity was the cornerstone of another garden, designed by a local Christian group. At 10 by 20 feet, it was one of the larger garden plots, but plants and accessories were kept to a minimum, to avoid distractions, traits of a true Zen or contemplative garden. Raked sand led to a small wooden deck that housed a small bench, a few rocks and a container with sedge grass. A bamboo screen served as a backdrop to the deck area. The sedge was one of only four types of greenery included in this design, the others being sod, Japanese black pine trees and groupings of heavenly bamboo.

The local high school’s FFA chapter paid homage to grandma-style gardening with its 10by-20 garden. The space was a combination of flowers and edibles, so it looked good and tasted better. Designers used an array of colorful trees, including purple-flowered potato vine, burgundy crape myrtle and white oleander. White and purple alyssum bordered etched pavers that created a little walkway. Red bark mulch added color and kept weeds at bay. Marigolds added additional bursts of color throughout the landscape.

Quick Tips

When it comes to gardening, size doesn’t always matter. Whether your space is a container on an apartment balcony or a narrow stretch of earth along a side yard, here are a few tips to help make the most of your little piece of paradise: • Make a rough sketch of the space. • Don’t let vertical space go to waste. • Start with good soil. • Always group plants with similar water and sun needs. •Use plants of varying heights to create focal points and visual interest.

HOME COOKING

Only for you:

Solo desserts are special, because their scale doesn’t tip the scales

By Kim Ode Star Tribune (Minneapolis) From childhood, we are taught to share. We admire a generous spirit, and a commitment to serve all. Yet because we can never trust certain people not to hold back the larger piece of cake for themselves, we love individual desserts. Actually, we love them for many reasons: A solo serving exudes an “I made this for you” specialness, and is almost invariably prettier than a slab of something, however luscious. For mom on Mother’s Day, or for any bridal or baby shower when “oohing” and “aahing” is in order, consider serving individual Lemon Charlottes, which combine tender homemade ladyfingers, tart lemon curd, a cloud of lemon mousse and fresh berries. The results are far more impressive than the actual labor involved, and isn’t that how we all want our mothers to think of us? Homemade ladyfingers similarly are marvels of humble beginnings. A simple meringue batter is spooned into a pastry bag, piped into long shapes and given a double-dusting of powdered sugar before baking. Store-bought ladyfingers _ if you can even find them _ are pale imitations of these moist spongecake batons, crackling with just the sheerest veneer of caramelized powdered sugar. Ladyfingers first appeared in the late 15th century at the court of the Duchy of Savoy to honor a visit by the King of France, which is why they sometimes are referred to as savoiardi. Apparently they were especially popular with young members of the court; the fact that Twinkies pay homage to long tubes of sponge cake is merely coincidence. Now, while we’re all in favor of having the right tools for any task, we must note that it’s not necessary to own eight metal charlotte ring molds. We bought a 3-inch mailing tube from an office supply store and cut it into eight 3-inch lengths with a serrated knife. Lined with strips of parchment paper, these work admirably and can be re-used. Chilled for several hours, a charlotte holds together well (and remember, you’re not sharing this with anyone). But we like the final touch of encircling each dessert with a length of ribbon, so your guests feel like they’re opening a gift. Which, of course, they are.

Ladyfingers Makes enough for 8 individual charlottes, plus extra. Note: Cake flour is finely textured with a high starch content that makes tender desserts. You can find the flour in boxes in the baking aisle. Adapted from “The Joy of Cooking.” 1 cup plus 2 tbsp. cake flour (see Note, above) 6 eggs, separated, divided 1/4 cup plus 1/3 cup granulated sugar, divided 1 tsp. vanilla 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar 1/2 cup powdered sugar Directions: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place racks in the lower and middle positions. Place parchment papers on 2 baking sheets, anchoring them on the bottom with a dot of baking spray or butter. With a ruler, mark a guide to measure 5-inch ladyfingers. (If you want to pipe discs for the base of the charlottes, trace eight 2 3/4-inch circles; otherwise, you can cut and fit ladyfingers to make a base.) Sift cake flour into a medium bowl. If you don’t have a sifter, whisk the flour briskly to remove any lumps. In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks, 1/4 cup granulated sugar and vanilla on high speed until thick and pale yellow, 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape into larger bowl. Return the flour to the sifter and sift evenly over the top of the eggs. Do not mix in. (No sifter? Just distribute evenly.) In a large clean bowl, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar to soft peaks. Increase speed to high, gradually add 1/3 cup granulated sugar, and beat until peaks are stiff. With a spatula, fold a third of egg whites into egg yolk mixture, gently stirring until almost no streaks remain. Fold in the remaining whites in two batches, gently lifting from the bottom and folding over the top until few streaks remain, taking care not to deflate the whites.

Spoon the batter into a large pastry bag fitted with a 5/8 inch plain tip. (It helps to stand the bag upright in a vase to fill it. No pastry bag? Fill a plastic bag and snip off one corner.) Pipe the batter onto the parchment paper. Each ladyfinger should be about 1 inch wide and 5 inches long. You’ll need 16 to 20 ladyfingers for the charlottes, plus about a dozen more for the bases (or make discs). To give the ladyfingers a thin veneer of crispness, here’s a tip from the new “Sprinkle Bakes” by Heather Baird (Sterling, $19.95). Instead of sifting only once with powdered sugar before baking, Baird sifts half of the sugar over the ladyfingers, then waits 5 minutes until the sugar begins to melt. Sift the remaining sugar over the pastries. Place pans on oven racks and bake for 6 minutes, then switch positions. Bake for 6 minutes more, then slide the parchment onto a wire rack to cool. Gently peel the ladyfingers from the parchment and store in an airtight container not more than a day, or use immediately.

Lemon Curd Makes about 1 2/3 cups, enough for 8 charlottes. Note: This recipe is from “The Joy of Cooking.” 3 eggs 1/3 cup sugar Grated zest of 1 lemon 1/2 cup strained fresh lemon juice (from 2 to 3 lemons) 6 tbsp. (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, cut in small pieces 1/4 tsp. vanilla Directions: In a medium saucepan, whisk together eggs, sugar and zest. Add lemon juice and butter. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until the butter is melted. Continue whisking until the mixture is thickened and simmer gently for a few seconds. Scrape curd into a bowl and stir in vanilla. Let cool, cover and refrigerate to thicken. May be made several days in advance.

Mini Charlottes With Lemon Mousse And Curd Serves 8. Note: To make your own molds from 3-inch-diameter cardboard tubing, use a serrated knife (or saw) to cut 3-inchtall pieces. Line them with parchment paper if using cardboard. Each charlotte will use 2 (5-inch) ladyfingers plus more for each base (either broken ladyfingers or a 3-inch disk made from ladyfinger batter). 1 cup heavy cream 1/4 cup powdered sugar 16 ladyfingers plus more for bases (see Note) 1 2/3 cup lemon curd (homemade or commercial) For charlottes: Selection of fresh fruit: raspberries, strawberries, kiwi, blackberries, blueberries.

Directions: Whip cream and powdered sugar to stiff peaks. Set aside. Place 8 ring molds (3 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter) on a rimmed pan. If using cardboard rings, line with parchment paper (see Note). For each ring, cut and piece together about 1 1/2 ladyfingers to make a base, or insert pastry made into disks that fit. Cut 2 ladyfingers in half and line the ring with the sugared sides facing out. (If there’s a large gap, cut another ladyfinger to fit.) Place a rounded tablespoon of lemon curd on each base, then fold remaining curd into the whipped cream to make a mousse. Place a rounded tablespoon of lemon mousse on the curd, then add a few blueberries or raspberries. Add additional mousse to within 1/4 inch of the top of the ladyfingers. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 2 to 4 hours. Just before serving, arrange fresh fruit on top of each charlotte. With a spatula, gently transfer each from the rimmed pan to a serving plate. Remove tubes or molds by slipping them off. If desired, tie with ribbon, and serve.

Your Choice Of Filling There are many options for finishing the charlotte. Any flavor of mousse or custard would work. Here are some ideas, beyond the lemon curd and mousse, to get you started. Layer of melted chocolate on base, topped with chocolate mousse and fresh raspberries. Chocolate mousse with layers of grated chocolate, mini chocolate chips or toasted finely chopped nuts. Strawberry mousse (strawberry puree mixed in with whipped cream) with diced berries atop Vanilla custard with toasted shredded coconut in layers (for a coconut cream pie effect). Vanilla custard with layers of bananas and graham cracker crumbs or vanilla wafer crumbs (for a banana cream pie effect). Perhaps a drizzle of melted chocolate. Two flavors of mousse or custard for a layered effect. Butterscotch custard with whipped cream.

Coffee cup kid:

Ingredients by the drop, cooking times in seconds and an urge to experiment yield instant love-in-a-cup

By Cindy Dampier Chicago Tribune When I was a kid, my mother called me The Mad Scientist. It wasn’t that I was an ace in science, but more that I liked to mix stuff in tiny cups — and leave them scattered around the house. So when I stumbled on a recipe on the Prudent Baby blog (prudentbaby.com) for a coffeecake in a coffee cup, I was hooked. The ingredients were insanely tiny (1/2 an egg! drops of vanilla!) and the results could be tasted in minutes because the cooking was done in the microwave. The instant gratification meant that weekday breakfasts could include a warm, adorable coffeecake for one grateful child. In short, it was kind of brilliant. Turns out the coffeecake post was Prudent Baby’s top post of 2011. Co-founder Jaime Morrison Curtis, who came up with the cinnamon-flavored cake as an alternative to chocolate cake-in-a-cup recipes, recognized its appeal right away. “Tiny things are awesome,” she says. “I did have to mess around with it a bit ... but that’s the fun part of making recipes.” It was so much fun, it made me wonder what else I could cook in a coffee cup. Here’s what I discovered: Though the microwave is a blunt cooking instrument, it works well with small portions of anything that aims for a soufflelike consistency. Think English steamed puddings, lava cakes, bread puddings, omelets — and don’t overcook. Compensate for the lack of browning by using dark brown sugar, or covering the tops of your creations with garnishes such as crumb topping or cheese. Once you’ve figured out basic proportions and cooking times (which will vary depending on your cup size and your microwave), start raiding your fridge for ingredients that suggest variations on your themes. Because the quantities are so small (though you can also double recipes and split them between two cups), you can experiment as much as you like without fretting over wasted

ingredients. Once you start, you might discover that you’re a mad scientist too. Recipe notes: Use a microwaveable cup, and consider placing it on a plate to catch possible overflow. We found that a 12-ounce cup worked best for these recipes. You may need to adjust cooking times depending on the strength of your microwave oven. The cup and mixture will be very hot. Allow to cool a bit before eating. Each recipe makes 1 serving.

Building better burgers:

You can grill a great burger using beef, but why stop there?

By Joe Bonwich St. Louis Post-Dispatch We’d have liked to provide some burger-making tips to coincide with the start of grilling season, but as everyone knows, this year that ship sailed with La Nina. And even when we do get a normal transition from winter into spring, many of you have been firing up the grill all year round. Nonetheless, we’ve been flipping up a storm at the backyard grill, making burgers from a variety of meats (and in one case, a vegetable). Our first suggestion: Use high-quality, relatively low-fat beef, but add some fat, working from the inside out. Putting a pat of herb butter inside the uncooked patty makes the interior moist while adding flavor. Our second suggestion: Skip the beef and go with bison for a full, meaty flavor. Bison has about a third less fat than 90 percent lean beef, however, so it, too, can benefit greatly from some added ingredients. We recommend adding one egg for every pound of ground bison — and flavoring it with just a touch of shallot and Worcestershire. Other flavorings would work equally well, so experiment with your favorites. Our third suggestion involves moving beyond red meat. Turkey burgers are generally lower in fat than beef burgers, but be careful: Not all ground turkey is created equal. Look for a label that specifies lean ground turkey breast, with no dark meat or skin added. And finally, for our fourth and fifth suggestions, consider dropping the meat altogether. Make a burger out of fish — a tuna burger, for example — or take advantage of the fact that a portobello mushroom cap cooked on the grill looks a lot like burger patty.

America’s sweet-tart:

Rhubarb is beginning to ripen; enjoy it in desserts, savory sauces and side dishes

By Joe Bonwich St. Louis Post-Dispatch Sam Wiseman associates rhubarb with nostalgia “It’s such an old-fashioned crop,” she says. (Sam is short for Samantha.) “A lot of people remember it from their youth, seeing their grandmothers grow it in the garden.” What’s more, rhubarb plants can have a long life. “Some people say that they’re still growing their grandmother’s rhubarb,” Wiseman says. For her part, Wiseman started growing rhubarb a few years ago after more and more customers asked for it. She has operated Sunflower Savannah Farm in Beaufort, Mo., for 12 years. Thanks to our warm spring, Wiseman’s rhubarb got an early start this season. “Then it just stalled,” she says. But fresh rhubarb has also begun to appear in supermarkets. In general, color isn’t an indicator of ripeness or sweetness. Rhubarb comes in varieties ranging from green to deep red, and some is speckled or has graduations of color. You should purchase rhubarb that’s firm and has relatively shiny skin. Avoid rhubarb whose ends show signs of drying out. In the kitchen, the classic affinity for tart rhubarb is, of course, strawberry. Rhubarb also pairs well with other sweet ingredients. But don’t limit yourself: Rhubarb can flavor side dishes, perk up sauces for meat or fish, and even be pickled for use in a colorful salad.

Use a knife to scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean into the pot; discard the pod. 4. Bring to a gentle simmer over mediumlow heat. Cook, stirring occasionally and gently, until the liquid is a little creamy and the rhubarb is tender but the pieces are still largely intact, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely, then stir in the rose water. 5. Assemble the fool. With a whisk or a handheld electric mixer, whip the cream mixture until it’s fluffy and full with semistiff peaks. Spoon some of the rhubarb mixture into the bottom of a large bowl or the bottoms of four 8-ounce glass serving dishes or glasses. Top with a layer of cream; sprinkle on some pistachios. Repeat layers until you’ve used everything, finishing with a layer of rhubarb. Cover and refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour.

Car checks a part of life’s basic skill set By William Hageman Chicago Tribune Did you know that aside from listening for thumping sounds or eyeing mysterious puddles of goo on the garage floor, there are things even the most automotively challenged car owners can do to maintain their vehicles? A little effort can keep your car safe and save money down the line. Check No. 1: Fluid Levels Check once a month, more frequently on older cars. Pop the hood and prop it up securely. Oil and transmission: Check your owner’s manual to find their locations. Remove the cap or dipstick, wipe it clean with a rag or paper towel, reinsert it, then withdraw it again. The “full” level is marked on the stick. Replenish fluids as necessary into the proper port, shown in the manual. And if the oil or fluid is dark, it probably needs to be changed. (Let a pro do it.) Wiper fluid & coolant: These are generally in opaque plastic reservoirs with obvious markings. The tops snap off for easy refilling. Engine on/off: Most fluid levels should be checked with the engine off and cold; it should be running when you check the transmission fluid. Beware of fan/belts. Check No. 2: Windshield Wipers Check twice a year, more frequently if you use a lot of washer fluid. Ask the pro at the auto parts store which wiper model fits your car. Replace: Raise the wiper-arm assembly away from the windshield, then find the mounting clip. Release the clip (a screwdriver may be needed), and the wiper will slide off the arm. Slide the new wiper on until the mounting clip clicks, then lower the arm back to the windshield. Replace both wipers at the same time. Check No. 3: Tire Pressure Check once a month. Get a tire gauge at any store with an auto section. Reading: Remove the cap on the tire’s air valve — put it in your pocket so it doesn’t get lost — then press the gauge to the valve. If you hear hissing, you’re off; realign the gauge till it stops.

When I started working on this magazine, a question popped into my mind. What is a Jayhawk, exactly? Despite having attended the University of Kansas for the last four years, I never really stopped to think about the bird’s origin. It was Google to the rescue, and within a few minutes, I found out that a Jayhawk is a combination of two birds — the unruly, boisterous blue jay and the sneaky sparrow hawk. The mystery had been solved. However, a couple months later, I’ve realized the Jayhawk is so much more than just the mythical creature we call

our mascot. The Jayhawk, instead, takes on many shapes, sizes and meanings. Any student who trudges up and down the sidewalks of Jayhawk Boulevard during a torrential downpour to make it to class on time, or curls up in a comfy spot in the Anschutz Library stacks for a VKRUW QDS GXULQJ ÀQDOV ZHHN LV D Jayhawk. Any athlete who begins each season with a burning determination to win, dedicates sweat, tears and countless hours to a sport, and lives through the pain and triumph, is a Jayhawk. Any fan who braves frigid winds and below-zero temperatures to camp out for front row seats at Allen Fieldhouse, or spends hours perfecting an over-the-top costume to sport at Memorial Stadium, is a Jayhawk. Any Kansas professor who gives enthusiastic, engaging lectures that make students excited about their semesters ahead is a Jayhawk. :KHQ IUHVKPHQ WDNH WKHLU ÀUVW unsure steps on campus, they are Jayhawks. And when thousands of cap and gown-clad graduates — some teary, some ecstatic — walk through the Campanile, they are, and forever will be, Jayhawks. But that’s not all. Being a Jayhawk means belonging to a family — a family that stretches far beyond the county lines of Lawrence and comes together in support of the crimson and blue. This magazine is a celebration of the love and tradition the Jayhawk family has experienced during the past 100 years. A family I’m proud to call my own.

100 Years of the

Jayhawk


the Jayhawk and

its many forms words by nadia imafidon illustrations by ryan benedick

The Jayhawk spirit on campus is overwhelming, especially when sitting in Allen Fieldhouse, surrounded by thousands of fans shouting,

“Rock Chalk Jayhawk, go KU!�

Big Jay and Baby Jay hype up the crowd, and everyone cheers even harder for some of the greatest basketball players in the country. We call them our very own Jayhawks, but where did the name “Jayhawk� come from? Turns out, the history of our mascot is rooted in just as much, if not more, emotion than the basketball games we line up hours in advance for.

1912

THE CRAZY BIRD WITH THE SHOES The term “Jayhawker,â€? coined in 1848, was derived from the struggles between Kansan VHWWOHUVĂ€JKWLQJIRU and against slavery during the Civil War on the Kansas and Missouri border. Kansas terULWRU\ ZDV D EDWWOHĂ€HOG HDFK VLGH frequently attacked each other’s settlements. Members on both sides were called “Jayhawkersâ€? for a long time. Lawrence, where the University of Kansas was founded, was a free state stronghold, however, and soon the name “Jayhawkerâ€? became attached to those who fought against slavery. The Jayhawk was a patriotic symbol during the Civil War. New Yorker Charles Jennison came to Kansas to raise a regiment of free VWDWHĂ€JKWHUVFDOOHG-HQQLVRQ¡V-D\hawk Regiment. By the end of the war, “Jayhawkâ€? was synonymous with those who fought passionately for Kansas to be a free state. The term was associated with the spirit of comradeship and courageous Ă€JKWLQJTXDOLWLHV When the KU football team SOD\HGLWVĂ€UVWJDPHLQLWRQO\ seemed natural to call these passionate athletes Jayhawkers. For years, KU football players were known as Jayhawkers, but fans were without a clear picture of what a Jayhawk truly looked like. No one had thought of the JayKDZN DV DQ DFWXDO ELUG WKH ZRUG had always been more of a sentiment than a creature.

The mythical mascot was formed from two different birds: the blue jay and the sparrow hawk. The combination of a quarrelsome bird known to rob other birds’ nests, and a bird known as a stealthy hunter, makes our mascot, the Jayhawk, a bird no one dares to mess with. Daniel Henry “Hankâ€? Maloy, a cartoonist for the University Daily Kansan and yearbook, used this idea for inspiration when drawLQJWKH-D\KDZN0DOR\ZDVD sophomore from Eureka who had previously drawn the KU mascot as a bulldog in his cartoon drawings for the school newspaper. “I had been drawing cartoons up there for two years without ever having seen sign of a Jayhawk,â€? Maloy wrote in The Outlook, a KU QHZVOHWWHULQ This long-beaked, long-legged, EOXHELUGDSSHDUHGIRUWKHĂ€UVWWLPH LQKLVWRU\RQ2FWDQGSHRple were confused by the fact that he was wearing shoes. Maloy had an obvious explanation: for kicking opponents. A popular song at the time, “You Gotta Quit Kicking My Dog Around,â€? inspired the idea for 0DOR\¡V Ă€UVW FRPLF VWULS ZLWK WKH -D\KDZN 7KH ELUG Ă€QDOO\ PDGH D lasting impression on KU students ZLWK KLV Ă€UVW DSSHDUDQFH D FRPLF showing him kicking the Missouri +RXQG'RJ7KLVZDVRXUĂ€UVWRIĂ€FLDO-D\KDZN And so the image of our mascot remained this friendly-looking bird for the next eight years, sparking inspiration for many others to create their own interpretations of the Jayhawk.

MORE THAN A MYTH-SPIRITED JAYHAWK Many have retold the story of the Jayhawk, asserting that it’s more than just a mythical bird. Its roots in history evoke an emotion in fans that cannot be found at any other school. F.C. Blackmar, dean of the graduDWHVFKRROLQJDYHDVL[PLQXWH radio presentation on the Jayhawk LQ 'HFHPEHU  +H VWDUWHG KLV presentation describing the origin and how the combination of two birds that were frequent in the Missouri Valley makes our mascot a mythical creature. This, however, was not the most memorable portion of his speech. He ended his speech by describing what the Jayhawk says about us. “But no matter about the origin of this mythical creature, about its uncertain history, about its early use by people whose actions were

sometimes questionable, today ‘Jayhawk’ embodies the Kansas spirit, the University spirit of unity, loyalty, honest and right living,� Blackmar said. Two KU students, George Hollingbery and Jimmy O’Bryon, both sophomores at the WLPH FUHDWHG WKH  -D\KDZN They designed a duck-like bird that was widely accepted by the students. Hollingbery and O’Bryon painted the Jayhawk on store windows and backs of raincoats to spread KU spirit and to make some extra pocket change. It wasn’t too long after that when the Jayhawk started to appear on jackets, sweaters and uniforms.

aul Coker, a 1951 graduate with a degree in art, left his mark on the University of Kansas with his own version of the Kansas Jayhawk on the front cover of the Jayhawker Yearbook. Coker, a Lawrence native, recalls most of his time spent at the University working on art and illustrations for various classes and events. He quickly became known as an artist on campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you get the reputation, you follow it,â&#x20AC;? Coker says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you can do whatever you do slightly better than your peers, then you become whatever that is.â&#x20AC;? Because of Cokerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic ability, he was asked to draw a different version of the Jayhawk for the 1949 Jayhawker Yearbook. He belonged to an honorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society group and initially drew his version of the Jayhawk for the group to sell it at various events, but then the University approached him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually remember being given the job of designing the

Jayhawk,â&#x20AC;? Coker says. Regardless, Cokerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jayhawk was printed on the front cover of the Jayhawker Yearbook in the spring of 1949. The Jayhawk drawn for the yearbook isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only mascot Coker created in Lawrence. In 1946 Coker drew the Chesty Lion mascot for his alma mater, Lawrence High School, as a promotional piece to help sell Lawrence Highâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yearbook. The drawing is still used today. Coker says that his Jayhawk and his creation of Chesty Lion are the only reasons Lawrence residents remember his name. But his success didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end there. After graduating from the University and moving away from Lawrence, Coker continued with his passion in art and illustration. Perhaps the most notable job Coker took on was his role in illustrating the characters for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeerâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frosty the Snowman.â&#x20AC;? Still, Coker says, there were many other people involved in the creation of these characters.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get the credit for these things, and yet lots and lots of people are involved,â&#x20AC;? Coker says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For instance, someone had to write the VWRU\Ă&#x20AC;UVWVRPHRQHKDGWRGRWKH song and music. All I did was take the script that was sent to me by the movie producer and draw the characters that occurred to me in the script.â&#x20AC;? &RNHU VD\V WKDW DOO RI KLV Ă&#x20AC;HOG experience helped shape him into a great artist. ´6FKRROLVĂ&#x20AC;QHEXW\RXOHDUQDV much in a week at a commercial establishment than you would in four years of school,â&#x20AC;? Coker says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exaggeration, but not much.â&#x20AC;? Coker currently resides in Santa Fe, N.M., which he refers to as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;art town,â&#x20AC;? and does work for MAD magazine, along with other freelance work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever I do, I try to enterWDLQP\VHOIÂľ&RNHUVD\V´,Ă&#x20AC;JXUH if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not entertained by what I do, then whoever sees my stuff wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be entertained either.

T

he Jayhawk, which many of us pass by on a daily basis on our way to class, sits staunchly upon its granite perch in front of Strong Hall. It never really occurred to me how it was made or who made it. I, as with many other things, always took for granted that it was there, had been there, and will always be there. But the way it was made makes an intriguing story, and the artist behind this Jayhawk and other sculptures around campus proved to have a remarkable tale worthy of illumination.

Elden Tefft, who used to teach sculpture at the University of Kansas and developed the sculpture program when he was working on his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree, met with me to talk about his creation of this Jayhawk, yet I ended up hearing much more about his life. Born in Hartford and having moved to Lawrence around the age of nine, he began his artistic career making marionettes in high school. He proved to be quite the entertainer, having once made a ventriloquist dummy. He also dabbled in the art of sword swallowing and Ă&#x20AC;UHHDWLQJSXWWLQJRQVKRZVGXULQJ his years in high school and becoming known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;multiplex Tefft.â&#x20AC;?

Force and was stationed at various bases around the world. In the evenings, he would make life masks of fellow soldiers (like death masks except the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alive), and he eventually was able to help soldiers rehabilitate by helping them create crafts. After the war, he was able to return to the University and complete his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree. At the time, the University didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a sculpture program, so he agreed to create one. As a professor at the University, he designed the Jayhawk that we now see in front of Strong Hall. Unlike the smiling Jayhawk that is our RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOPDVFRWWKLV-D\KDZNVWDQGV with expanding wings and a robust chest. Tefft says he wanted to make the Jayhawk more muscular and more

realistic. There is the feel of the pterodactyl in his design â&#x20AC;&#x201D; strong and powerful. This Jayhawk was cast in the Bailey Hall Annex. Bronze casting is a long and very detailed process, which requires the utmost care and attention. Before casting the sculpture, the artist must create a wax mold of the sculpture. Then, a series of wax tubes is placed around the mold. Through these tubes the liquid bronze is poured in and the wax is melted out. After these tubes are put around the wax mold, a negative mold is then created using a plaster-like substance. The wax is then melted away from this negative mold. Finally, the artist builds a furnace around the negative mold. Bronze at a temperature of around 2,100

ROCK CHALK Russian Jayhawk Words by Dana Meredith Photo by Max Mikulecky

T

he 1917 carving of the Russian Jayhawk is displayed in a glass case in Wescoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Slavic Languages and Literatures department. The carving was presented to the University of Kansas in 1921 from KU Professor Conrad Hoffman and was recently added to the Spencer Research Library archive. He stands a mere four inches tall; his 94-year-old body covered in a Ă&#x20AC;QHOD\HURIGLUW Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traveled from Germany to .DQVDV PDNLQJ KLV KRPH Ă&#x20AC;UVW LQ the School of Journalism â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where he sat, forgotten, until 2009 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and then in the University Archives. On Wednesday evening, he made another journey, this time to Wescoe Hall, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll live for one year in a glass display case. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Russian Jayhawk,â&#x20AC;? as the small carving has come to be known, was a gift from an unknown Russian prisoner of war to Conrad Hoffman, a Kansas alumnus working with the YMCA in Germany during World War I. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a symbol of the long-standing connection between the University and its students doing good in Russian and Eastern Europe, said Marc Greenberg, chairman of the Slavic department.

A GIFT OF GRATITUDE In 1913, Conrad Hoffman became the secretary of the YMCA at the University. The YMCA post was â&#x20AC;&#x153;an important non-governmental service performing a moral and social function during the First World War,â&#x20AC;? Greenberg writes in his article â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hoffmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hawk.â&#x20AC;? According to the article, the YMCA worked in prisoner-of-war camps in Germany, providing edu-

22

cation and coordinating social and athletic activities for the prisoners. The YMCA also helped prisoners by giving them tools and arranging exhibitions and sales of their artwork. Hoffman went to Germany in 1915, and it was common for him to receive presents, says the article, from the prisoners that he worked with. According to a pencil inscription on his side, the Russian Jayhawk was given to Hoffman in 1917. He was probably carved by either a master Russian woodcarver, whom Hoffman describes meeting and aiding in his 1920 memoirs or one of his apprentices and based off of an unshod Jayhawk prototype. A 1921 article in the Kansas City Star says that Hoffman then gave the Jayhawk to the University Daily Kansan to be put on display.

A REDISCOVERY In July of 2009, University archivist Becky Schulte got an email from the School of Journalism. Someone had found the Russian Jayhawk â&#x20AC;&#x201D; his legs snapped at the ankles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in Stauffer-Flint Hall and wondered if Schulte wanted to keep him in the archives in Spencer Research Library. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We placed him in a box and added him to our archive database,â&#x20AC;? Schulte said. A little more than a year later, Schulte brought the Russian Jayhawk out of storage to show him to a Kansan reporter who was writing an article on the archives. Shortly after that, Greenberg saw a link on Facebook to the Kansan article. He was struck both by the Jayhawkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;symbol of appreciationâ&#x20AC;? and his unique design. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s typically

Russian in its technique and comes from a craftsman tradition, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a typically American subject,â&#x20AC;? Greenberg said. He made an appointment with Schulte to see the carving and, after receiving permission from the School of Journalism, started making plans to display the Jayhawk.

A NEW HOME Displaying the carving wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as simple as moving him from the archives to Wescoe Hall, however. First, the Jayhawk had to be repaired. Greenberg sent out an appeal to alumni and students, raising $200 for the work, and the Spencer Research Library contributed the rest.

A CELEBRATION OF COMPASSION 1HDUO\D\HDUDIWHU*UHHQEHUJĂ&#x20AC;UVW heard about the Russian Jayhawk, almost 40 people crammed into a small, book-lined room in the Slavic GHSDUWPHQWRIĂ&#x20AC;FHVVSLOOLQJRXWLQWR the adjacent hallway. Chancellor Bernadette GrayLittle came. So did Danny Anderson, the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The tiny Russian Jayhawk brought them all together, a reminder, Greenberg said, that â&#x20AC;&#x153;objects arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just objects. They have meanings

and context.â&#x20AC;? And the meaning of this object? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is a symbol of all that we are: Small, fragile, noble and able to bridge cultures if only we try,â&#x20AC;? Greenberg said at the ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I dedicate our Russian Jayhawk to the next hundred years of KU students. May they continue to learn another language, another mindset and show the world the great things that Kansans bring to the world.â&#x20AC;?

hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than brain and brawn to Big Jay, who describes himself as a multi-faceted guy. Although he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have his own Dos Equis commercial, he could be the most interesting man on campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a pretty spirited guy,â&#x20AC;? Jay says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a knack for getting into trouble, I like to show off my muscles, and the ladies catch my attention. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not all about being macho and intimidating, though. I like kids, even though I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be having any of my own soon.â&#x20AC;? Big Jay, an orphan, comes from a far away land full of fascination, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that his nest is located in another magical place: Allen Fieldhouse. ´,W¡VRQWKHWKLUGĂ RRUÂľ-D\VD\VEXW he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t elaborate on the types of things he has in his nest. Jay must keep his nest pretty clean though, because he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a summer vacation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really not much of an offVHDVRQ IRU PHÂľ -D\ VD\V ´, Ă \ WR Florida for the celebrity mascot games. I go to a lot of weddings and community events. Any time left over I spend working on my golf game, and then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about GTL.â&#x20AC;? Big Jay is most known for intimidating the other mascots on game day. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a job just any bird can do, but it seems to come naturally to him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have an intimidating swaggerstrut,â&#x20AC;? Jay says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, my huge guns help, but the most intimidating factor about me is being from the University of Kansas where we have the best programs.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that Jayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet con-

26

sists of Tiger and Wildcat meat, but it takes more than just eating healthy to be game day ready all the time. Jay is not shy about hitting the gym. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I focus a lot on glamour muscles, biceps and triceps,â&#x20AC;? Jay says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I am also a deltoid man and focus on those a lot.â&#x20AC;? Those glamour muscles come in handy when checking out the ladies, something Jay does well and does often. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a crush on every University girl,â&#x20AC;? Jay says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Erin Andrews.â&#x20AC;? Jay doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only have admiration for the ladies; he also has a list of men he considers role models. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chuck Norris, Maury Povich and Gandhi, pre-hunger strike, are all big for me.â&#x20AC;? Jay says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then obviously Bill Self, Charlie Weis and Phog Allen.â&#x20AC;? Even though he represents the University, Jay admits heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sure if he would make a good student himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I went to class Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d throw a lot of paper airplanes,â&#x20AC;? Jay says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ask professors as many random questions as I could think of, and after that, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably sleep.â&#x20AC;? While Jay may not be learning much in the classrooms at the University, he has learned some rules to live by. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be good or be good at it,â&#x20AC;? Jay says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.â&#x20AC;?

It just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be done. Baby Jay is probably the only 40-year-old anything that is still considered a baby, but nevertheless, one who has earned a special place in our hearts. Under all the baby fat, Baby Jay has a childlike, but strong, personality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am ornery and rambunctious,â&#x20AC;? Baby says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mischief is my favorite, and I am in love with anyone who will take a picture with me.â&#x20AC;?

ascots are believed to bring good luck to their athletic teams, by intimidating and scaring the opposing team and its mascot, all while pumping up the home teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crowd and promoting team spirit. The role of Big Jay and Baby Jay goes far beyond charming the crowd or running around in circles in opposite directions in the middle of Allen Fieldhouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They preserve the tradition and brand that is the University Of Kansas,â&#x20AC;? says Jennifer Allee, assistant athletic director for marketing and fan experience. Forty years ago, Big Jay rolled a big, blue manmade egg to the 50 yard line of Memorial Stadium, where Baby Jay was hatched during halftime of the 1971 homecoming victory against 6XQĂ RZHU6WDWHULYDO.DQVDV6WDWH Since the birth of Baby Jay, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare that the two mascots are ever seen apart. Amy Hurst, the creator of the original Baby Jay, had no idea that what started as an innocent joke with a coworker would evolve into an iconic symbol for KU. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am thrilled and proud to know that my simple act, coming out of my enthusiasm for KU, has made such a KXJHGLIIHUHQFHDWRXUYHU\Ă&#x20AC;QH8QLversity,â&#x20AC;? Hurst says. Hurst constructed the original cosWXPH ZLWK IHOW FKLFNHQ ZLUH DQG Ă&#x20AC;berglass along with help from her parents. Hurst, who jokingly refers to herself as the Original Baby Jay (OBJ), remains in awe of the important role Baby Jay has taken on in 40 short years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I wore OBJ, I was only permitted to attend football and menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball games,â&#x20AC;? Hurst says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That

was it, and now look where we are today.â&#x20AC;? Today, the University has anywhere from six to eight mascots per year, each putting in about 15 hours a week. Big Jay and Baby Jay attend more than just women and menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic and PR events. Their appearances range from elementary schools, to alumni events and even private weddings. More than the iconic symbol of KU, the mascots create a character people can associate with and an image that embodies KU spirit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that brings excitement, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something they can get attached to and fall in love with,â&#x20AC;? Allee says. She compares the mascots to athletes, as they are required to attend mandatory workouts and meet strict grade requirements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Jay and Baby Jay are so much more than a mascot,â&#x20AC;? she says. The Jayhawk is synonymous with KU fans everywhere, but some members of other schools combat that, sayLQJWKH-D\KDZNLVSXUHO\Ă&#x20AC;FWLRQDO When prompted as to how fans can ZRUVKLS D Ă&#x20AC;FWLRQDO FKDUDFWHU$OOHH¡V reaction is similar to other proud Jayhawks: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Its real to KU.â&#x20AC;? The luxury of having two mascots (or one and a half) is something most schools donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have. It allows for more fan interaction and creates a fun environment that appeals to all ages. The creativity and excitement Big Jay and Baby Jay bring to each sporting event is a thrilling element that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be present without them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how a single person can single-handedly change the course of a University. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine what the University of Kansas would be without Big and Baby Jay,â&#x20AC;? Allee says.

There are OTHER Jayhawks Words by Kelsey Cipolla

The Kansas mascot may have been Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original Jayhawk, but that has not prevented schools across the country from adopting the mythical bird as their own. Since the 1960s, the Jayhawk has been selected to represent school districts, high schools and even a community college.

URBANDALE COMMUNITY SCHOOL The Jayhawk was also adopted in the 1970s by the Urbandale School District in Urbandale, Iowa. Their previous mascot, the Blue Jay, was deemed too docile, says Brian Coppess, associate principal of Urbandale High School. Some local fans of the University of Iowa Hawkeyes pushed for Urbandale to adopt the Hawk as a mascot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, as our archrival was the Ankeny Hawks, this did not sit well with many,â&#x20AC;? Coppess says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time, the band had gotten new uniforms that had a bird on them and the gym Ă RRU KDG EHHQ UHĂ&#x20AC;Qished with a bird on

it.â&#x20AC;? Somebody came up with the idea RIWKH-D\KDZN´,WVDWLVĂ&#x20AC;HGWKRVH ZKRZDQWHGWKH+DZNVLWSDFLĂ&#x20AC;HG those who wanted to stay the Jays and Jayettes, and it utilized the ELUG RQ WKH J\P Ă RRU DQG RQ WKH band uniforms, so they went with it,â&#x20AC;? Coppess says. Initially the school used the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of the Jayhawk, EXW .8 RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOV IRXQG out and required that the mascot be changed. A student came up with a new look for the mascot and the word Jayhawk was changed to JHawks.

JAMESTOWN COMMUNITY COLLEGE Jamestown Community College in Jamestown, New York, adopted the Jayhawk for a very practical reasonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;its use of the letter â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. 1HOVRQ *DULĂ&#x20AC; WKH executive director of marketing and academic initiatives at Jamestown, says the Jayhawk was selected in the 1960s to replace a lackluster mascot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The original mascot for our athOHWLFWHDPVZDVWKH0XVNLHÂľ*DULĂ&#x20AC; VD\V ´$ PXVNLH LV D Ă&#x20AC;VK VKRUW IRU 0XVNHOOXQJH D NLQG RI Ă&#x20AC;VK WKDW LV native to western New York waters.â&#x20AC;?

Although the reasoning behind the name change is not clear, GariĂ&#x20AC; KDV DQ LGHD RI ZK\ WKH Muskie did not last. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best guess would be that it was a bit awkward to have a Ă&#x20AC;VK Ă RSSLQJ DURXQG RQ the basketball court,â&#x20AC;? he says. As for why Jamestown decided to replace WKH QDWLYH Ă&#x20AC;VK ZLWK D P\VWLFDO ELUG*DULĂ&#x20AC;WKRXJKWLWZDVSUREDEO\ changed to the Jayhawk for alliterative purposes. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other campus uses the Jaguar as a mascot, keeping with the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; theme.

OUT THERE HEAD-ROYCE SCHOOL

This private school in Oakland, Calif., needed a new mascot in the 1970s after separate schools for boys and girls became a coed high school. Students chose from three different potential mascots: the Roadrunners, the Rockets and the Jayhawks. The Jayhawks won out. Head-Royce Athletic Director Brendan Blakeley says the Jayhawk was more popular because of its uniqueness, rather than its historical or political VLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQFH â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a nice ring to it, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an easy word to

say when we do our little huddle,â&#x20AC;? Blakeley says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make much of a connection to Kansas.â&#x20AC;? Every summer, Blakeley tells the incoming freshman class that he will take any student to lunch that can tell him the history of the Jayhawk after he or she returns in the fall. How many students have actually taken him up on his offer? â&#x20AC;&#x153;One in the last two years,â&#x20AC;? Blakeley says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also an alumnus of the school, so I have a strong DIĂ&#x20AC;OLDWLRQ WR RXU PDVFRW and I like it.â&#x20AC;?

JAYHAWK SCHOOL DISTRICT In 1967, the Jayhawk School District formed in Mound City. The district originally included three high schools, but there were plans for consolidation in the early 1970s. Students wanted to know what their mascot would be the next year. Records from a school board meeting on Nov. 13, 1972, show that hundreds of community members had launched a petition for the high school to adopt the Jayhawk as the mascot. But not everybody was a fan of the new name. According to the records, one board member said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt Jayhawk was wonderful name, but feel we would be a copycat to use it because of the KU mascot.â&#x20AC;?

The Jayhawk has special historiFDOVLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQFHIRUWKHGLVWULFW â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re four miles from the Mine &UHHN%DWWOHĂ&#x20AC;HOGÂľVD\V5R\FH3RZelson, district superintendent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local historians felt like the Jayhawk around here was meant to give compliment to the Jayhawkers that were involved in this battle. There used to be a sign on the edge of town that said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mound City: Home of the original Jayhawks.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Original Jayhawks or not, the district was forced to make a few changes to their mascot about 10 years ago to avoid copyright infringement. The Jayhawk, Linn Jayhawk, wears a cowboy hat, faces to the right instead of the left, has red feathers on its body and yellow feathers on its face.


WHAT DO YOU THINK? STUDENTS DISH ON THE JAYHAWKS Words by Kayla Banzet

Rici Swartz, junior, Wichita State University

“They are friendly rivals! I get to hear about when we lost to them from my sister, who is a Jayhawk. This means I make sure she knows when we beat them.”

“I think of all the school spirit that that surrounds the Jayhawk and the legacy that it has made in Kansas as well as many other states.”

“When I see the Jayhawk, I think of all of my friends that attend there and how the University of Kansas is the best place for them. It suits their academic needs.”

“I guess I think of a great basketball family. I mean, they all have to be close or they wouldn’t be able to have a winning season year after year.”

J.C. Boyce, senior, Evangel University

Chastin Leggett, junior, Oklahoma State University

Chelsee Hicks, sophomore, University of Arizona

Jancey Hall, junior, Kansas State University

“As a Kansan looking at it in a different light than just sports, I can’t help but admire the rich history and roots the University has in the state, and the many Kansans and people worldwide who’ve received a quality education there throughout the years. I have had family and friends who’ve attended there during various decades dating back into the 1940s. I feel that the Jayhawk generally makes the average Kansan feel a sense of pride, regardless of origin.”

“The Jayhawk is associated in the Big 12 with great doctors and basketball, but also childish arrogance and unsportsmanlike conduct.”

“I have always felt a connection with the Jayhawk since I spent my childhood in Kansas. I feel it much more than when I see the University of Arizona “A” or Wildcat, the symbols that represent my own college. The Jayhawk makes me think of rivalries between friends and families who supported K-State, and to me it signifies a very close-knit college that radiates school pride.”

“Every time I see the bird, I wonder who came up with such a thing and debate if it was real, if it would taste good and wonder why when choosing the colors, they decided to use primary colors. When I look at a Jayhawk I just have all sorts of questions and then realize why it’s so awesome to be a Wildcat.”

he tradition of singing the Alma Mater and Rock Chalk Chant before basketball games is just as sacred to the University as the creation of the sport itself. Jayhawk basketball is more than just a game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a deeply rooted tradition. The tradition of Kansas basketball began with the one man who invented the game, James Naismith. James Naismith was born in 1861 in Ramsay Township, Ontario. He grew up in Canada and attended McGill University in Montreal for his undergraduate degree.

He wrote the 13 original rules of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basket Ball,â&#x20AC;? which was

This was just the beginning of what would become a Jayhawk basketball tradition, as well as one of the most popular sports in the world. After completing his degree from the YMCA, Naismith was still eager to expand his knowledge about the human body, mind and soul. This led him to Gross Medical School in Denver, where he earned a degree in medicine with a focus on sports physiology. He became a doctor in 1898. While Naismith was in medical school, the YMCA introduced basketball to the world. The school set up movements that familiarized many nations with the new sport. With a degree in religion and medicine, as well as the invention of basketball under his belt, Naismith traveled to Lawrence in 1898. He joined the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faculty as both a physical education teacher and a chapel diUHFWRU /DWHU KH VHUYHG DV WKH Ă&#x20AC;UVW basketball coach for Kansas. It was then that the longstanding basketball tradition at the University began. He coached Forrest â&#x20AC;&#x153;Phogâ&#x20AC;? Allen who became one of the winningest coaches in college basketball history. As basketballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity took off in Lawrence, it also gained momentum in the sporting world. Then, in 1936, basketball was introduced at the Berlin Olympics and Naismith awarded the players their medals himself.

Naismith died in Lawrence in 1939 after 40 years at the University. His mission for sports and good health lives on through Jayhawk basketball. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1959. Every time Kansas fans gather around the basketball court at Allen Fieldhouse and sing the Alma Mater, the remembrance of Naismithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for the sport is present. Basketball will forever be a tradition protected by the crimson and blue.


NAISMITH’S RULES

RETURN HOME WORDS BY MAGGIE YOUNG PHOTO BY CHRIS BRONSON

$4.3 MILLION.

That was the price tag on the two pieces of paper containing the 13 original rules of “basket ball,” which were written by James Naismith in 1891. The rules not only contain rich basketball history but are also part of the sport’s tradition in Lawrence. For David and Suzanne Booth, that price tag was worth it for the legendary rules. In December of 2010, the Booths purchased the original rules and made the decision to donate them WRWKHRQO\SODFHWKDWVHHPHGÀWWKH University of Kansas. Naismith not only invented basketEDOO EXW ZDV DOVR WKH ÀUVW FRDFK IRU Jayhawk basketball at the University. He spent the majority of his life in Lawrence, about 40 years, and died there in 1939. Naismith was a true Jayhawk, and Booth says he believes there is no place in the world for those rules other than Lawrence. The 13 original rules were auctioned off at Sotheby’s auction in New York City. Josh Swade, a KU alumnus who now works as a producer in the entertainment business in New York City, found out the auction was happening a few blocks down the street from him. Swade says that he felt compelled to get the rules back to the University from the moment he heard about it. “The rules represent Naismith’s great contribution to the world and this comes to light the most at the University,” he says. “That can never be taken away.” Swade began his mission to return the rules to the University by traveling the country and talking to different alumni about the rules. On his search, Swade contacted Booth and could tell that Booth immediately recognized the importance of the rules.

Booth, a chairman for Dimensional Fund Advisors, participated in the auction on the phone. He laughed and said it was pretty simple — all you had to do was bid higher than the other person. Booth purchased the rules for $4.3 million, and they currently reside in Austin, Texas, where he lives. The rules will stay there until the University decides how they will be displayed, a decision that requires a lot of thought. Bill Self, men’s basketball coach at the University, says that naturally, it would be best if the rules were placed in Allen Fieldhouse. Self emphasizes the pride that the alumni base will feel from this donation. “We’re very proud and certainly appreciative of what David and Suzanne and the rest of their family have done for this University,” Self says. “The pride in having these rules here in Lawrence will last far longer than any of us will. It will last for many generations.” Jim Marchiony, associate athletics director at the University, says the display must highlight the importance RIWKHUXOHV´,W·VWHUULÀFWKDWWKHUXOHV will end up in a place that respects the game, legacy and the man who invented it,” Marchiony says. Booth is a KU almunus, trustee for the Kansas University Endowment Association and donator of the Booth Family Hall of Athletics. Swade says he is the best alumnus a University could have. “Those two pieces of paper cause so much excitement,” Booth says. “When you stand over the rules, you think about how those two pages created a sport that touches so many people’s lives.”

Owens began coaching at Kansas in 1960 as an assistant under Dick Harp. When Harp resigned as coach after the 1963-1964 season, Owens took his place. He finished his career at Kansas in 1983 as the third winningest coach, behind Phog Allen and Roy Williams.

Perhaps the greatest defender in school history, Valentine had a nose for the ball and linebacker legs. Under former coach Ted Owens, Valentine was always on the floor, even as a freshman. Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership was a reflection of his indefatigable work ethic and athletic prowess.

Simien was born a Jayhawk. He rooted for the basketball team as a kid, played in basketball camps in Lawrence and was an easy recruit for former coach Roy Williams. He was a scoring and rebounding force in the paint, and his number, 23, was retired on Jan. 29.

Darrell Arthur

Darnell Jackson

+VMJBO8SJHIU

To some, it came as a bit of a surprise when â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shadyâ&#x20AC;? opted for Kansas. Arthur was a top recruit eyeing starting minutes at Indiana, Baylor, Texas and LSU. On Thanksgiving in 2004, Kansas beat Florida 82-80 in Gainesville. Arthur recorded 19 points and nine rebounds in 16 minutes.

Jackson was made for the dirty work, scrapping inside for rebounds and high-percentage shots near the hoop. He led the title team with 267 rebounds and started the last 35 games of that season. He was a top reserve before he earned his starting role and was a fan favorite for his tireless play.

Wright was able to play inside with the bigger forwards or step outside against guards. He used his length as a defender to irritate ball handlers and sky for rebounds. As a scorer he made plays from anywhere on the floor and served as a valuable offensive spark from multiple positions.

Two pudgy-faced freshmen from Philadelphia came to Lawrence in 2008 and seemed a bit out of place. Flat brim caps and an East Coast style just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mesh with Kansas.

In their freshman and sophomore seasons, the Morrii werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the focal point of the team; that role was delegated to Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich. They were, however, absolute keys to the Big 12 Championship that the Jayhawks won in 2009, and the 33-3 record in 2010. When Collins and Aldrich were gone, the Morris twins were the undeniable leaders of the Jayhawks. It was only for one year that Kansas was truly their team, but it was a treat nonetheless. Both Markieff and Marcus continued to develop their outside game, while remaining ferocious in the paint. They never won a national title, but the Morris twins will always be remembered by the Jayhawk faithful with warm thoughts.

AT KANSAS YEARS: 2005-2008

A 6-foot-6 guard with a smooth stroke from behind the arc, Rush averaged more than 13 points per game in all three of his seasons at Kansas. His three point percentage never dropped below 40 percent, proving him to be one of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best threats from long range every season. Growing up in Kansas City, Mo., Rush was all too familiar with the history of Kansas basketball, even making some of his own while on campus.

Another model of consistency, Mario Chalmers averaged more than 12 points per game in each of his three seasons as a Jayhawk. He improved every season at Kansas, with his minutes, points, field goal percentage and assists increasing every year, culminating in the greatest moment in Kansas basketball history.

THE TRUTH, THE LEGEND Words by Max Rothman

Paul Pierce AT KANSAS YEARS: 1995-1998 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take this down. My name is Shaquille Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal, and Paul Pierce is the motherf------ truth. Quote me on that, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take nothing out. I knew he could play, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know he could play like this. Paul Pierce is the truth.â&#x20AC;? Shaq spoke those words on March 13, 2001, not even six months after Pierce was stabbed 11 times in a Boston night club, minutes after he dropped 42 points on the Los Angeles Lakers, his favorite team as a kid. The Celtics lost that night 112-107, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what people remember. Since that game, from California to Massachusetts, there is one justifiable truth, and his name is Paul Pierce. It all started at the playgrounds of Inglewood, Calif., where Pierce grew up emulating his idol, Magic Johnson. Pierce took his basketball and dribbled down Crenshaw Blvd., past junkies who scratch and gangs toting gats, evading cracks in sidewalks, keeping his head up and his basketball away from cars zooming by. When he finally got to the park, he played with whoever showed until the sun went down. This is how he formed his game. Never the strongest nor the fastest, Pierce has always used his creativity to score. The playgrounds were his labs for experimentation. Allen Fieldhouse and the parquet floor at the Boston Garden showcased the summation of his past.

KANSAS RIVALRIES WORDS BY JUSTINE PATTON

A

s a Division I school, competing with other teams on a national level comes with the territory. After playing on stages as large as the Orange Bowl or the NCAA National Championship, Kansas is bound to have some rivals in the sports world. Missouri is one of those rivals. The phrase â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Border Showdownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is one that, when heard, brings anger, KRSHDQGDĂ&#x20AC;HUFHVHQVHRIFRPSHWLtion to any Jayhawk. And for a good reason. The sports rivalry between Kansas and Missouri has a heated history, to say the least. The rivalry

dates back to the time of Bleeding Kansas and Quantrillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Raid. Though the days of slavery are long gone, the animosity between the two teams remains strong. From the Kansas loss in 1961 that erupted into a bench-clearing basketball brawl, to the football teams facing off in front of record-breaking crowds at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., the Border Showdown has captivated audiences for decades. Despite Missouriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transition to the Southeastern Conference, it is safe to say this rivalry will not soon be forgotten.

From 1994 to 2005, Kansas dominated the rivalry on the basketball court, winning 31 straight games against K-State â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the longest winning streak for either school in the series. In recent years, the Wildcats have stepped up their game, making the once lop-sided match-up a more equally matched competition. 7KHIRRWEDOOĂ&#x20AC;HOGKDVDOVRSOD\HG host to intense encounters between the schools throughout the years, H[FHSW RQH $ FRQĂ LFW EHWZHHQ WKH

teams in 1909 resulted in the cancellation of a scheduled game during the 1910 season. Kansas and K-State have competed every fall since then, making the 2010 season the 100th straight year the rivals have met on the gridiron. While having rivalries with other schools can cause fans to sling harsh taunts and throw down gauntlets, the competition can bring out the best in a team. Rivalry games highlight the unity, sheer determination, and school pride that is found in a Jayhawk.

he â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rock Chalk Jayhawkâ&#x20AC;? chant serves as a unique embodiment of school spirit for the University of Kansas, which incorporates a rich history. In 1886, Professor E. H. S. Bailey, chair of the Chemistry department, conceived â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rah Rah Jayhawkâ&#x20AC;? as a rallying yell for the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Science Club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rah Rahâ&#x20AC;? was later replaced by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rock Chalkâ&#x20AC;? after the suggestion of a member from the geology department due to the limestone found around Kansas, according to Carolyn Bailey, granddaughter of the professor in an interview by university relations. Carolyn Bailey passed away this year in August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to have new students know that this yell, the KU 5RFN&KDONFKDQWLVWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWWKLQJ that brought KU together as a body, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sung everywhere there is a group of students,â&#x20AC;? Carolyn Bailey said in an interview this past summer.

Words by Marshall Schmidt Photo by Chris Bronson In the early years of the University, developing chants were prevalent among student clubs, organizations and even graduating classes. They were shouted at meetings, gatherings and games. Usually these calls were unique to the group of students themselves. Even as late as 1946, the University Daily Kansan reported a yell competition held at the University for a cash prize. Although most of these yells were short-lived, the Rock Chalk chant continued as KU tradition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was catchy,â&#x20AC;? says Becky Schulte, a university archivist at the Spencer Research Library. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it just grabbed people when they yell it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique.â&#x20AC;? The introduction of football to the University in 1890 made the Rock Chalk chant grow in popularity as a cheer used by fans. In 1905, the yell ZDVPRGLĂ&#x20AC;HGWRLQFOXGHWKUHHYHUVes of slow monotone chanting, coupled with three additional verses of staccato

or detached articulation and fastpaced tempo, which is the way itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heard today. The chant has been used on the IRRWEDOO Ă&#x20AC;HOG DV ZHOO DV WKH EDWWOHĂ&#x20AC;HOG  .8 DOXPQL Ă&#x20AC;JKWLQJ LQ WKH Philippines during the SpanishAmerican War used the cheer, which also became a battle cry during Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boxer Rebellion, according to a UDK article published in 1946. During World War I, the chant was used to locate fellow Kansas soldiers. A soldier would yell out, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rock Chalk Jayhawk,â&#x20AC;? hoping to hear the response of â&#x20AC;&#x153;KUâ&#x20AC;? from friends who might be nearby. In the 1920 Olympics held in Antwerp, Netherlands, the Rock Chalk chant was used to demonstrate a typical American college yell. Former president Theodore Roosevelt even called it the best college chant heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever heard. Jennifer Sanner, senior vice presi-

dent of communications for the KU Alumni Association, believes the chant brings Jayhawks together, even 126 years after Bailey created it. However, in recent years some alumni have raised concerns about students shouting â&#x20AC;&#x153;wooâ&#x20AC;? between the slow cadences. The addition to the chant has occurred in the past several years, but some alumni would prefer if there was silence instead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even with the modern rendition, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the most powerful and distinctive yells around,â&#x20AC;? Sanner says. For KU fans, the Rock Chalk chant has been used as a rallying cry as well as to greet and sign letters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where Jayhawks gather in all kinds of settings, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to say farewell,â&#x20AC;? Sanner says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a part of who we are and part of our community.â&#x20AC;?

ressed in a knee-length white skirt, a wool sweater with a KU emblem, saddle shoes and anklets, Claudine “Scottie” Lingelbach spent her college days on stage in front of thousands of loyal fans directing cheers at basketball games during Phog Allen’s time as coach. Lingelbach was a part of the Jay Janes, a student pep squad at the University in the 40s. Lingelbach, who turns 90 this April, is still the enthusiastic Jayhawk fan she was in her college years, proving that an appeciation of the Jayhawk spirit strengthens with age. Kansas pride doesn’t stop after a student graduates. Current students of the University stroll up and down the sidewalks of campus each day, surrounded by buildings full of traditions and memories. Students also attend adrenaline-packed sporting events and take part in traditions that have been treasured by Jayhawks for decades. Lingelbach’s school pride only grew stronger as she grew older. She graduated in 1944 and moved back as a 65-year-old. When asked why she moved back, she says, “I thought it sounded fun, don’t you think?” Jennifer Sanner, senior vice president for communications for the KU Alumni Association, says that part of what makes the University extraordinary is the shared experience of traditions that stays constant as the generations change. Lingelbach feels the same strong love that current students experience during their time on campus. “If you could bottle up what it means to be a Jayhawk, you would never have to have another fundraiser again,” Lingelbach says. “A person doesn’t come out of KU without an enduring love for the school.”

The Jayhawk is the honored mascot and symbol that students come to know and love during their years at the University. Sanner says that despite the different looks of the Jayhawk throughout the decades, it still has the same meaning. It is the only Jayhawk, and that brings a certain importance to the mascot that every generation understands. Lingelbach says the Jayhawk is highly visible, and it embodies the love of the school. “It’s the kind of the thing where you say, ‘I’m a Jayhawk,’ and people know,” Lingelbach says. Jayhawk generations of the past and present have differences in their college experience, but the strong tradition remains the same, Lingelbach says. College is a time for learning, growing, and if you’re a Kansas student, it’s a period where you develop appreciation for what it truly means to be a Jayhawk. Lingelbach advises students to cherish the years that go by quickly and make wonderful friendships and maintain close contact with those people. ´,W·V VXFK D ÀQH LQVWLWXWLRQ \RX will never feel reluctance that you went to KU,” Lingelbach says. “It’s truly beautiful.” It doesn’t matter how far a student moves away from Lawrence, the Kansas family spreads far and wide. “The Jayhawk brings the family elements together and connects fans and allows them to communicate with each other,” Sanner says. The family is not like any other and every alumnus is a part of the thread that connects all Jayhawks in the world. It endures no matter what. “You know what,” Lingelbach says. “I believe in the crimson and the blue.”

ansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; run to the Final Four starts tonight and if the Jayhawks win it all, one Jayhawk fan might add to her already recognizable tattoo. It all started in 2000 when Kat â&#x20AC;&#x153;KU Tatt Katâ&#x20AC;? Steward was inked XS IRU WKH Ă&#x20AC;UVW WLPH 7KH WDWWRR LV ORcated on her lower back and it is of a JLUO DQG D Ă RZHU WKDW VKH JRW IRU KHU younger sister. Steward said her family members rolled their eyes like any parents would when their child gets a tattoo, but since WKDW Ă&#x20AC;UVW WDWWRR VKH KDV DGGHG HLJKW more with her tattoo on her upper back being the most recognizable. The tattoo that spans her entire upper back, from shoulder to shoulder, is commemorative of Kansas basketball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started that one in early 2007,â&#x20AC;? Steward said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took a lot of time plan-

56

ning that one. It took about two months with sessions.â&#x20AC;? Steward said that the main part took DERXWKRXUVDQGĂ&#x20AC;YHRUVL[VHVVLRQV but said she was doing a couple touch up pieces on some of her other tattoos. She said she had the main part done by the time ESPN College GameDay came to Lawrence for Kansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; matchup with Kansas State in 2008. The original tattoo caught the attention of GameDayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s host Rece Davis and analyst Digger Phelps at The Wheel. The producer told Steward to come early to get it on TV, but Steward wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t early enough. However, she has since had the opportunity to be on ESPN a few times, but that was after she added the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;2008 National Championsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; banner to the top. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I originally designed this I never planned on adding more to it,â&#x20AC;?

Steward said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As it kind of got toward looking like we might win it all, I talked to my artist and I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I need an appointment just in case I want to add a banner.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? She said people were joking that the tattoo was a good luck charm during the season, since she had it the whole season and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it before. The banner was added two weeks after the Jayhawks cut down the nets in San Antonio. She said adding the banner was the most painful part because it is at the top of the spine, but said the rest of the tattoo wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as bad. Her tattoo on the inside of her upper arm is the most painful tattoo that she has gotten. Steward didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t graduate from Kansas; she actually graduated from Wichita State with a degree in criminal justice, but since her dad introduced her to

EDVNHWEDOO VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FDOO\ WR .DQVDV VKH has loved them. The tattoo has garnered national attention, from ESPNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pat Forde writing about it, to Erin Andrews interviewing her at College GameDay this season. She has posed for pictures with a number of players, past and present, and even coach Bill Self. If the Jayhawks do end up cutting the nets down in Houston, Steward doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if she will add on to her tattoo. If one of the players wants to get tattooed with her at the same time she might, but she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see that happening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I honestly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve thought about it, maybe I would maybe I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want or plan to keep adding should they win more,â&#x20AC;? Steward said.


FILLING THE FIELDHOUSE

K

U fans both young and old give the University a reputation for strong athletic teams and an even stronger sense of community. One of the most memorable fans in KU history is Jimmy Neil Tucker, called â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Owlâ&#x20AC;? in the KU community, a 64-year-old diehard Jayhawk fanatic with a long white beard. He is known for shouting pro-Jayhawk chants on the stairs of Wescoe Beach on campus and showing off his dance moves in the stands of Memorial Stadium. Crowned â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild Fan of the Gameâ&#x20AC;? by Fox Sports Network in 2007, controversy followed White Owl during his reign as one of the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most outrageous enthusiasts. After a series of complaints about his loud, sometimes disruptive, antics, White Owl was banned from campus in 2009. However, it is safe to say that the memory White Owl left behind will not soon be forgotten. Older generations arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only

Then, after each basketball game, a group of faithful student fans wait patiently for hours to catch a glimpse of their favorite campus celebrities. The fan base at KU is so strong that US News & World Report ranked the University as one of the best colleges for basketball fans. Jim Marchiony, the associate athletics director at the University, agrees that some credit for the Phogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation â&#x20AC;&#x153;is due to our fans, in particular our student fans. It intimidates opponents, and it jacks up our team, making Allen Fieldhouse one of the best places in the country for basketball.â&#x20AC;? Some of the more seasoned fans may have a long history with the team, like 104-year-old Olive Vorse, who celeEUDWHGKHUELUWKGD\E\DWWHQGLQJKHUĂ&#x20AC;UVW

basketball game in Allen Fieldhouse this year, after having followed the team on TV for years. But the younger fans show just as much dedication. Chris Williams, a freshman from Olathe, is a long-standing KU fan who goes to great lengths to make sure his camping group always gets prime location in Allen Fieldhouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My parents both went to KU, so I was raised crimson and blue,â&#x20AC;? Williams says. Williams has sported several off-theZDOO RXWĂ&#x20AC;WV DW 0HPRULDO 6WDGLXP LQcluding a painted bare chest and a KU yeti costume. Williams says fans have a VLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQWSODFHLQ.8FXOWXUH â&#x20AC;&#x153;They play a huge role. We have the best home court advantage in the nation because of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em.â&#x20AC;? Brandon Peper, a sophomore from Jefferson City, Mo., is another dedicated fan, but with twist: he was raised in a house full of Missouri Tiger fans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing up, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a KU fan, because my parents were graduates of

Mizzou and raised me to be that way also. Around seventh grade, I became a KU fan, and my love for KU has grown since then.â&#x20AC;? Peper still remembers when he endured the worst of weather conditions, with freezing temperatures and icy wind, in order to save his camping groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front row seats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My group had drawn number one at lottery, and we were super excited to have front row seats, because KU and KSU were both high-ranked teams, and Wayne Simienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jersey was being retired that night,â&#x20AC;? Peper says. However, he had to work for his camping group, getting up at 6 a.m. to walk through deep snow and ten-below weather. Both Williams and Peper agree that the University would not be the same without the support of the students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without a strong student population, KU would not exist as we know it today,â&#x20AC;? Peper says.

ometimes, a name is just a name â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even when the name in question seems completely uncommon and unique. Just ask Jay Dulac, of Jayhawk HVAC in Santa Rosa, Calif. Or Carl Grady, of Jayhawk Detective Agency in Atlantic City, N.J. They arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t University alumni, but they had their reasons for incorporating the mythical bird in the name of their businesses, including their own names and versions of historical events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It had nothing to do with Dorothy or Wizard of Oz or any of those people,â&#x20AC;? Dulac says. There are dozens of businesses and locales around the country that use Jay-

Dulac, the California HVAC man, says he has become a Kansas basketball fan from 21 years of cutting out newspaper clippings about their victories. But he originally named his business after himself â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jay â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and a former business partner named Hawkyard. His partner is no longer with him, Dulac says, but it would cost too much money and cause too much trouble to change the sign on the building.

He went back in time, beyond the days of Bleeding Kansas, to the 1849 California Gold Rush. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back in the day, they were a group of people, like a posse, that would help people who were tormented,â&#x20AC;? Grady says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were a good group of people, who helped people. Balanced the system.â&#x20AC;?

JAYHAWKS FOREVER Missouri town protests mascot

L

eaders of a small city in Missouri claim their resolution criticizing the naming of University of Kansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jayhawk was taken too seriously. The Osceola Board of Aldermen passed the resolution in September of 2011 for the 150th anniversary of the devastating attack by the Kansas-native raiding Jayhawkers on the city. ,Q WKH UHVROXWLRQ WKH FLW\ RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOO\ acknowledged that the attack in 1861 occurred and led to William Quantrillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raid on Lawrence in 1863, in which â&#x20AC;&#x153;Missourians had no choice but to defend themselves from the murderous attacks perpetrated by the Jayhawkers.â&#x20AC;? $V D UHVXOW LW RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOO\ FRQGHPQHG Kansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; use of the Jayhawk as a mascot and requested that no citizen of Osceola or alumni of the University of Missouri capitalize the â&#x20AC;&#x153;kâ&#x20AC;? in any form of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kansas,â&#x20AC;? stating it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a proper name or place. The resolution prompted a response by KU News Director Jill Jess. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Jayhawk is a blue bird with a red head and a big yellow beak that wears

boots,â&#x20AC;? Jess stated in an email response to the Columbia Tribune. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be hard to confuse it with terrorist intent, though we admit we have been terrorizing the Tigers on the basketball court for some time. Tigers have been known to kill people. Bears, too.â&#x20AC;? Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little also commented on the resolution durLQJ D Ă&#x20AC;UHVLGH FKDW ´:H FRQVLGHUHG their suggestions yesterday from 5 p.m. to 5:01 p.m. It has been taken into consideration. We are not planning on eliminating the Jayhawk name from our mascot.â&#x20AC;? As local and national media wrote about the resolution, Osceola Mayor Larry Hutsler said it was originally meant to be taken lightheartedly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a fun poke at Lawrence and the University from the University of Missouri,â&#x20AC;? Hutsler says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was brought up at the anniversary of the burning and was supposed to be a funny satire joke to promote a fun, competitive rivalry, but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn out that way.â&#x20AC;? The rivalry between the two univer-

sities, known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Border War,â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Border Showdown,â&#x20AC;? is the second oldest in NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football bowl subdivision, and goes back to the Civil War, when independent Kansan and Missourian forces burned and looted towns in both states. In 1861, a group of Kansan raiders, known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jayhawkers,â&#x20AC;? led by U.S. Senator and Gen. James Lane, sacked Osceola and plundered much of its wealth. Nine Osceolan men were given a swift trial and executed. At the time, Osceola was one of the largest cities in Missouri with a population of about 3,000. The attack left the city in ruins and the town never fully recovered. According to the 2010 Census, it currently has a population of 947. This attack was a prime motivator for William Quantrillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infamous raid on Lawrence, which resulted in the deaths of more than 180 men and the destruction of several Lawrence businesses. The raid caused heated backlash and a deep animosity between the two states, which is represented today by

the sports rivalry between the Jayhawks and the Tigers. Although 150 years separates the two events, some Missourians are still concerned that history is not being represented fairly. Mitchell Moore, a Missouri graduate and lawyer in Columbia, Mo., came up with the idea of the Osceola resolution to educate the public on Osceolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sacking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every time we have these [Border War games] on TV, commentators talk about the raid on Lawrence but leave out Osceola,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It bothered me that they would adopt the Kansas narrative. So, I was coming up with a way, with the anniversary approaching, to commemorate the folks in Osceola.â&#x20AC;? Moore took the idea to colleagues and had a contest to come up with the best resolution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of it was tonguein-cheek with the purpose to educate people on what happened to Lawrence and Osceola,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The narrative about the roots of the Border War is FODULĂ&#x20AC;HGDQGPRUHDFFXUDWHÂľ


BEHIND THE MIC

H

e retired after calling 60 years of Jayhawk basketball and football games. He had the privilege of calling two national championships for the basketball team and is a Hall of Fame broadcaster. That man is Max Falkenstien, a Jayhawk legend behind the microphone. Falkenstienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life as a Jayhawk didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin when he started broadcasting games in 1946, but rather when he was a young child in the early 1930s. His father, Earl, was the business manager of the University of Kansas Athletics, allowing a few perks for a young Max. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had close access to the players and saw them frequently as a kid. I went to the games all my childhood, as well as into high school,â&#x20AC;? Falkenstien says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve basically been associated with KU Athletics my entire life. I guess you could say ,¡PDERQDĂ&#x20AC;GH-D\KDZNÂľ He originally wanted to be a meteorologist with his mathematics degree, but accidentally got the broadcasting job when he returned from the Army Air Corps in the spring of 1946, and decided to resume his career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The radio station manager told me that there was a big game in Kansas City and that we ought to broadcast it on the station, do you want to do it,â&#x20AC;? Falkenstien says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, I never did a game on the radio but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give it a shot.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? That game was against Oklahoma A&M, now Oklahoma State University, and was an NCAA district Ă&#x20AC;QDOJDPH)DONHQVWLHQKDGDGPLUers from that game, allowing him to continue on with his broadcasting career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came back to school on the following Monday, and my mathematics professor said he listened to the game on Saturday and he felt like he was really there,â&#x20AC;? Falkenstien says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not many guys in the busi-

ness have started off with an NCAA SOD\RII JDPH IRU WKHLU Ă&#x20AC;UVW EURDGcast game, but I did.â&#x20AC;?

TRIP THROUGH MEMORY LANE Falkenstien has had several great memories throughout his 60-year broadcasting career. Though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to pick which stood out the most, he relies on what the Jayhawks are known for: national championships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to certainly single out the three basketball national championships that I was a part of. Of course we won it in â&#x20AC;&#x2122;52, with Clyde Lovellette, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading scorer. The next year we almost won it again, but we lost to Indiana in the championship game,â&#x20AC;? Falkenstien says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then â&#x20AC;&#x2122;88 with Danny [Manning] and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Miracles,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and then the great 2008 team with Marioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s [Chalmers] miracle shot.â&#x20AC;? Bob Davis, Falkenstienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broadcasting partner for 22 years, agreed that the 1988 national title was a special moment and one the two can always share. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is one we will always remember,â&#x20AC;? Davis says about calling the game with Falkenstien.

SIGNING OFF THE MIC Falkenstienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last broadcast was in 2006. In Allen Fieldhouse at the last home game, he was honored at halftime. He had his â&#x20AC;&#x153;number,â&#x20AC;? 60, raised to the rafters as the UniversiW\UHWLUHGLWEHFRPLQJWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWQRQ athlete to be granted the honor. Falkenstien says he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any regrets about his long career, but he does wish he could have waited. He wrote a book in 2007 titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Good Place to Stop: 60 Seasons with Max and the Jayhawks.â&#x20AC;? Originally he thought it was a great title, but now? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I titled it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Good Place to Stop,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; but actually that was a bad place to stop. Right after I stopped, we won the national championship in basketball and the Orange Bowl

in football. I shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve stayed two more years and then that wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a good place to stop,â&#x20AC;? Falkenstien jokingly says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of the last game I ever broadcasted, it was D ORVV DJDLQVW %UDGOH\ LQ WKH Ă&#x20AC;UVW round of the tournament.â&#x20AC;? Falkenstien says he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dwell on the last game because of so many other high points in his career.

ONE FINAL WORD For Falkenstien, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the job he misses as much as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being around the players and coaches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss doing the broadcast. I do miss the association with the players and the intimacy with the coaches as you travel with the team,â&#x20AC;? Falkenstien says.

When he retired, Falkenstien had broadcasted more than 1,750 basketball games and more than 750 football games. He was inducted into the College Athletics Hall of Fame in 1995 and the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame in 2001. Also in 2001, he was named the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best College Radio Personalityâ&#x20AC;? by The Sporting News. Falkenstien still enjoys going to every game the Jayhawks play at Allen Fieldhouse. He says people still come up to him and ask for pictures and autographs and some parents tell their children about what all he did.

“RED AND BLUE” “RED AND BLUE” “RED AND BLUE”

KU Words by Mike Lavieri

I

Originally published February 3, 2011

t’s the end of the first full week of classes, and the Barrel House, 729 New Hampshire, is packed with students waiting to see an encore performance from a local hip-hop artist. A week has passed since the up-andcoming artist, BeeJay “B DOUBLE E” McLoyd, shot his music video at the same location for the newest University of Kansas anthem with videographer Alan Ginsberg, Great Neck, N.Y., senior. McLoyd, 24, got his start freestyling at house parties, and has only been rapping officially for three years. He then burst on to the local hip-hop scene with the song “Red and Blue,” a remix of “Black and Yellow” by Wiz Khalifa. McLoyd wanted to create “Red and Blue,” because he thought he could do a better remix. He said he thought that a lot of the other people doing college remixes aren’t as serious as he is when it comes to music. The Barrel House welcomed more than 300 students in downtown Lawrence to see Kansas City’s up-and-coming hip-hop artist BeeJay McLoyd, who has recorded a new song, entitled “Red and Blue,” inspired by the University of Kansas’ colors. McLoyd decided he wanted to wait until Big 12 play to do the remix. Once he

finished the song four weeks ago, he was ready to create the music video, but said he decided to wait two weeks so he could work with Ginsberg, because he believes in the way Ginsberg shoots. “Alan’s my boy,” McLoyd said. “We’ve been meaning to work together for the last two, three months.” The two shot the video in about two days at various locations around Lawrence. They used the Barrel House because of the red walls, along with The Cave and the top of the Oread Hotel, 1200 Oread Ave. Ginsberg said that the video had to be shot in Lawrence because of the symbolic nature of red and blue to the University of Kansas. He said he likes working with McLoyd, because he knows a lot of people and good places to film, which really helps Ginsberg. “We talk a lot,” Ginsberg said. “He gives me his ideas, I give him my ideas, and we have a good trust. It’s a good collaboration process.” McLoyd is opening up for the Ying Yang Twins on Saturday at the Granada, 1020 Massachusetts. He said he has two mixtapes coming out on Feb. 8, and that he took the show, because it is another way to promote the mixtapes and get his name out there.
