Pankey ascends to head coach position Former pro football player has been with college for more than 15 years STEFAN BARROS

rv Pankey has been named COS's new permanent head football coach, it was announced Monday. The college made the announcement in an internal "eNEWS" press release. As interim head coach, Pankey led the Giants to a 6-2 record so far this season. "‌the students/athletes have demonstrated important personal traits including respect, commitment to academics, responsibility, personal accountability and individual and team discipline," college president Stan Carrizosa said in the release. "This is a direct reflection of Coach Pankey and the philosophy he teaches and expectations he has set for the team

and program." "Coach Pankey brought discipline to the entire Football Program and not just to the team on the field. He's been committed to excellence on and off the field with the players and he's holding them accountable," said Brent Davis, the college's athletic director. Pankey stepped in as interim head coach after Robert

Dougherty stepped down from the post in February to pursue an athletic director position in Hawaii. "He did not apply for the Head Coach position at the time, but when the program was on the verge of crisis, he offered to assume the responsibilities of Interim Head Coach in support of the college and students," college president Stan Carizosa

said in the release. Pankey has been at the college for 15 years, and has served under four head coaches as an assistant coach during his time there. Before working at the college, Pankey played for 13 years in the National Football League with the Los Angeles Rams and the Indianapolis Colts; he played college football at Penn State University and was named the team's captain in 1979. Originally Davis was looking at January 2014 as the date a new Head Football Coach would be hired, but he knew Pankey was the perfect for the job. "He really has had an extended interview for this job and we knew had the right guy for job already. We had the support of all the faculty on this decision." With the appointment, a search will begin for an assistant football coach to fill previously-held Jordon Dean/The Campus Pankey's position. Irv Pankey has been at College of the Sequoias for over 15 years.

Student wins national award AMANDA WILBUR

COS chemistry major Isis Frausto-Vicencio was one of around 80 participants who were recently recognized for their undergraduate research by the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science. Frausto presented her research poster along with about 1300 other students who were entering their own work at the 2013 SACNAS National Conference in San Antonio, Texas in early October. Every year, SACNAS hosts a national conference

which invites educators, scientists, and students to come and participate in cultural activities, watch seminars and presentations, network for job and internship opportunities, and present research. Frausto traveled to the conference on a travel scholarship awarded by SACNAS. This is the second year she has received a scholarship and has attended to the conference, but it is the first year that she has presented research. For eight weeks last summer, Frausto studied and conducted her research at a Research Experience for

Undergraduates program at UC Irvine. Her poster was entitled "In Situ Production of Methyl Chloride in Siple Dome and WAIS Divide Ice Cores from Antarctica." The purpose of the research was to model the atmospheric conditions and changes over the last 40,000 years by analyzing the concentration of methyl chloride trapped in bubbles throughout the ice cores, which were brought to UC Irvine from Antarctica. "I focused on methyl chloride because it is naturally produced and

COS students start band SEAN GREGORY

Four College of the Sequoias students have come together to start a band and are already making it further than most bands ever do. Landon McLain (vocals), Jason Kemp (guitar and saxophone), Jacob Marmino (guitar), and Travis Walters (drums) started their band Apogee almost a year ago and are already close to coming out with their first album, and have already started playing shows. They all knew each other from high school and Walters and Marmino had already been in a band together so it wasn't hard for them to get started. Walters and Kemp just started playing together and recording what they played just so they could improve their playing. "It started off as just a hobby," said Walters. None of them had intended on Apogee becoming as serious as it has become. This is shown in how they got McLain to be their vocalist. McLain had a copy of one of their songs and would just start screaming to it in his car. "He never really asked, we just kind of forced him to do

Thea Trimble said she is certain that COS will pass accreditation, but worries about the college staying on track afterward. "Part of the issue is that the commission has historically let us off the hook," Trimble said. Trimble has been with the college since 1990 and has served on various commissions, including the accreditation board in 2006 — when COS was initially given a warning from the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. Trimble said after she submitted the followup report in the summer of 2007, COS was taken off warning status, but was not followed up on. Jordon Dean/The Campus "The commission just Thea Trimble is one of the only members of faculty to have didn't follow us to make sure served on a visiting ACCJC accrediting committee. we were following through, and then we didn't and that's why they put fine but I actually accepted [the position] us on Show Cause."

They draw influence from the bands Periphery and August Burns Red, but add their own flavor to that style of sound. They incorporate saxophone and ambient sounds into their music to set themselves apart. "We have technical riffs and heavy breakdowns, so if you like technical riffs and heavy breakdowns then you will like us," said Marmino. Being in a serious band, having a job, and being a student is a difficult task but the guys in Apogee have found a way to make it work.

Healthy Food, Healthy People THE CAMPUS STAFF

n a society so focused on being healthy and thin, why is it so hard to find a healthy meal on campus? Even with the cultural push for healthy eating and exercise, obesity is rising. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 24 percent of California adults were obese — with a body mass index of 30 or greater — in 2010. These people are counted among the 60.7 percent of the state's population who are considered overweight, defined as having a BMI of 25 or more. Obesity is strongly correlated with Type 2 diabetes, according to a study conducted by the Department of Surgery at UC Irvine. More and more young adults are getting diabetes, and weight is a factor that can usually be changed. While exercise is beneficial, a healthy diet is extremely necessary. This is a good start to prevent the increase of a deadly statistic. Studies have shown that a healthy diet increases blood flow to the brain, which in turn improves our thinking capabilities. Energy levels are also benefited by a healthy diet. An increase in energy is always an advantage. We believe that the school should provide food options other than what is offered. The student body should be encouraged to eat healthy food, such as fruits and

also a ozone- depleting substance," Frausto said. In an atmospheric chemistry lab, Frausto was able to compare levels of calcium, nitrate, sulfate, magnesium, and chlorine ions to the levels of methyl chloride to find any correlations.

vegetables. It is hard to eat healthy food unless it is readily available. Fast food may taste good, but too much Carl’s Jr. leaves us tired and overloaded with sugar and carbs. And while the COS Café has undergone an improvement, there is still room for more. The sandwiches are delicious, healthy, and satisfying, but the salads need to be fresher and have more of the healthy foods that we need. The burritos have the same issue. They would be a healthy, delicious meal if they had more vegetables; beans, rice, and meat are not enough. We need either improvement of the food we have here, or new healthy food options. There are quite a few healthy, delicious, and inexpensive restaurants that would be beneficial, and while there are many located on Mooney, none of them are located close enough to the campus to make a quick trip possible or convenient. In such a landlocked campus, it is too difficult for staff or students to “just walk across the street." Having healthier food here on campus is necessary for the continued health of the student body and the faculty. We can all help lower the statistics of obesity and other health problems by encouraging those around us to eat healthy foods, and by doing so ourselves. College of the Sequoias can play a major role in this by providing better options. We can take control of our own futures by controlling what we eat. We can give ourselves healthy futures.

However, they did have a chance to tour recently when a label in Seattle approached them, but they turned it down. "It was sketchy and we need a manager to look at contracts and stuff. We need a professional," said Walters. Apogee played its first show in early October at Cafe 210 in downtown Visalia where McLain works, and despite it being their first time playing a show they weren't nervous. "I've always wanted to be a rock star," said Kemp. They all agreed after the show that it's what they would love to do for the rest of their lives, and they want to play more shows. Having a good portion of the crowd being friends and family helped them feel less nervous and to get into what they were doing. "Our fans are this nation's backbone," joked Kemp. There was one obstacle in that they played on a bill with hardcore bands whose fans are known for not showing much support for other styles of music. The guys in Apogee didn't mind much and know now to stick to playing with their style of bands. Apogee hopes to release their album in early 2014 and will be releasing it on iTunes and hard copy, and it will be available at local music store Velouria Records. Apogee encourages anyone interested in their music to follow @apogeeband on Twitter to keep up with what the band is doing.

At the conference, presenters and their posters were split into different disciplines and spread out in halls of the conference site. Here students, educators, and professionals, along with the judges, could view the posters and see students' presentations. Students were judged on their presentations, research, and posters. Frausto was one of about 80 students around the country who received an award for her "Outstanding Undergraduate Research Presentation."

Frausto is currently working towards getting a bachelor's degree in Chemistry. Since she has already studied at UC Irvine, she is looking into transferring there after her time at COS. "I'm thinking of going back to Irvine and continuing that research that I started." She would then like to continue on to get a doctorate in Earth Science. Her primary focus will be atmospheric science and the study of ice.

New Dean of Arts, Letters, and Learning Resource Center Karen Roberts has seen COS change over the years, and has made a big change herself. Roberts — formerly the Director of Nursing — was hired October 1, 2013 for the position, which had not been permanently filled since Jennifer Vega La Serna left to become vice president of Administrative Services in the fall of 2012. Stephanie Collier, now dean of Student Services, acted as interim dean of Arts and Letters for the intervening time. As a former student of COS and an employee for about ten years, Roberts has seen a small city college on Mooney Boulevard expand into a 10,000 student community college expanding over three towns. Roberts is originally from San Diego, but she moved to Tulare to enroll in COS’ Registered Nursing program in 1981. After graduating from the RN program, Roberts worked at two of the main hospitals in Visalia and Tulare. She then went back to school to obtain her teaching credentials and began to teach at COS. Within her ten years at COS, Roberts has gone from an educator, to a nursing director, and finally to a dean position. "COS gives you the opportunity to grow. COS has given me four careers." Roberts says that a lot of things have changed since she attended COS in 1981, but the main two areas are physical and technological.

"We are trying to formalize most of our processes. Informal processes is what go us in trouble in the first place." As an example, Trimble said that Academic Senate is in the process of creating a formal process of how to appoint faculty to campus committees. "In the past it's been like, "Who wants to do it?" So now we're trying to come up with a specific process. So if there's a choice there's a specific criteria that we use, so it's not just haphazard." Trimble's work as Academic Senate president has not gone unnoticed.

Academic Senate. “Trimble has been a fantastic leader, she’s been Academic Senate president before, so she understands the importance of the work, and she has been extremely involved with accreditation” Despite an understanding of the work, when faculty and administration meet, there is a chance of disagreements, and meetings between Trimble and La Serna have the same chance. “There are always issues that we have, but we work really well together to resolve these issues. Most importantly, we have open communication and collaboration,” La Serna said. Aside from working within Academic Senate, Trimble has been teaching Human Anatomy and Physiology since her arrival to the valley in 1990. Trimble attended

Monterey Peninsula Junior College then transferred to UC Davis where she received a bachelor's and master's degree in Biology. Trimble then attended University of Iowa where she received her doctorate in Biology. Trimble said that her love for science stems from her father. "My father was a scuba diver and my older sister and I always wanted to do what he was doing. We went camping for holidays and there were scuba diving holidays where he would take the boat and anchor it offshore, and then we would swim out to go scuba diving during the day and then camp out at the beach at night." Trimble was originally interested in marine biology, but soon became fascinated by human biology. "I kind of liked behavior, but then when I started to learn about the nervous system I

found my specialty," Trimble said. Trimble said that over the years she has seen a more diverse group of student enter the field of science. Trimble said that as a teacher it has been more satisfying to see an increase of diversity because it lends more perspectives to discussions. "When you have students with diverse backgrounds that are interacting it's really helpful. I think the more differences you have the better off you are." Trimble plans to run for Academic Senate president again next semester and hopes to keep the administrative momentum going after the accrediting commission's visit. "There's still more to do and we have to be very diligent about holding ourselves accountable to do what we said we were going to do."

It's the new age

The Men's Basketball team will begin the season with mostly new players, having only two Sophomores. SEAN GREGORY

Sports Reporter

C

ollege of the Sequoias Men's Basketball is ready to get started after a long off-season of hard work and preparation. Head Coach Rusty Smith has the same goals this season as he does for every season. He would like to win 20 games, a conference championship, and make a run in the playoffs. It will be a tough start to the season with a young team, and injuries to key players. The team only has two sophomores and one of them, Will Nelson, is out for the next eight weeks with a broken hand that he sustained in practice. So the team of primarily inexperienced freshmen will have to learn quickly. Despite these early hurdles, Coach Smith still feels good about his team.

"I like the character and attitude of this team," Smith said, "though we did have to eliminate some guys that weren't buying in." Coach Smith believes he has a very athletic group of players and, before the injuries, believed a strength of the team was its good depth. The team will be without three starters to start the season due to injuries. The one that Smith thinks will hurt the most is the loss of Nelson who he believes is the team's best all-around player. Nelson is naturally bummed that he won't get to play in the early games with his teammates, but is optimistic about the season. He echoes his coach in that he also would like to win a conference championship and make a run in the playoffs. He was disappointed in not making it out of the first round last year. Most of the team has local guys that played against each

other in high school and Coach Smith jokes that many of them bring some old rivalries to practice. Though he does believe that it helps get the best of them out in practice. Nelson agrees with his coach and laughed when asked about it. "I really like our guys," Nelson said, "were all teammates now." Saturday, Nov. 2 the team had a "Meet the Giants" scrimmage game that was followed by team introductions. Smith voiced that his team was really looking forward to playing someone other than each other and were ready for the season to get started. "I think we have a chance to be pretty good," Smith said. The Giants first game will be on Nov. 8 at the Cuesta Tournament.

Red Sox win odd world series STEFAN BARROS

Sports Editor

T

he 2013 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals may go down as the strangest one in all its history. Two of the games ended in ways a game never has, World Series or not. The Red Sox did come out on top in this wacky series. Game three of the series may have had the most bizarre ending to any game in history. An obstruction play is what decided the game for the Cardinals. In a tie game with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning, Cardinals Outfielder John Jay hit a hard ground ball to Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia. Pedroia threw out the potential winning run at home. Then "Sox" catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia tried to get the third out by throwing out the runner going to third base, Allen Craig. The throw got by third baseman Will Middlebrooks and Craig darted toward home plate to try and score the winning run. When Craig started running from third to home, he was interfered with by Middlebrooks who was on the ground from the trying the catch the errant throw. The third base umpire Jim Joyce allowed Craig to score the run even though he was thrown out at home plate. In Joyce's judgement, Craig would've been

safe had there been no obstruction. In the end it was the right call and ended probably the strangest World Series game ever. Game four's ending didn't have the controversy game three did, but it was still out of the ordinary. With the Cardinals down 4-2, with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, Cardinals Kolten Wong was at first base, and one of the best postseason players of all time, Carlos Beltran, was at the plate. Keep in mind that Wong had just come into the game as a pinch runner, so his job is stay on first base and don't try to do anything stupid. Sure enough, with Beltran at the plate, Wong gets picked off at first to end the game after he took too big of a lead. It was the first time a World Series game had ended on a pickoff. The next two games of the series played out much more normal than the previous two. Game five saw Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester throw his second masterful game of the series en route to a 3-1 victory for the Sox. In the clinching game six, the Sox jumped early on Cardinals young stud Pitcher Michael Wacha, holding on win 6-1. All in all, with the quirkiness of this World Series, I still found this to be a highly entertaining and highly competitive series. These were the two best teams in baseball, so it was expected to be a great series like this. If my Oakland A's aren't able to reach the World Series next season, I definitely wouldn't mind seeing these same two teams in it again.

Women's Basketball is ready ADRIAN RAMIREZ

T

he 2013-2014 season is getting closer and closer for the COS Women's Basketball team and they couldn't be anymore prepared. Head Coach Ray Alvarado seeks to guide his team to the playoffs again. When talking about his expectations Coach Alvarado said "compete for Central Valley Conference Championship, and make a deep run in the playoffs". When talking about the team, "best recruiting class, pleased with the group, high expectations, hoping for an exciting year" said Alvarado. Team Leader Vanessa Mancera shared her thoughts about this season, " Do a lot better than last year, and work as hard as we are capable of," said Mancera. Their are only three returners from last year that look to return back to the playoffs again with a whole new team. Standout Vanessa Mancera, Ney Aguilar, and Emonie Epps all return for their second season as Lady Giants.

So far there have been two standouts to Coach Ray Alvarado. Mancera, who was and all conference player last year and freshmen Corissa Turley (Redwood). Among those standouts are the team leaders: Mancera, Tyricia Payne, Tiana Henry, and Hannah Ramirez. The Lady Giants do have good attributes but along with that comes weakness. The strength of the Women's Basketball team is, "Depth, good leaders, good freshmen" said Alvarado. The Weakness of the team is the inexperienced freshmen, "It's a challenge, team chemistry, learning how to play together as a team " said Alvarado. Mancera also commented on the freshmen, " We are very young, but they work better" said Vanessa. The COS Women's Basketball team will start their season on Friday Nov. 8 in the Delta Tournament in Stockton, opponents and game time are TBA. The first home games for the Lady giants won't be played until the COS Crossover Tournament, starting on Friday Nov. 15. at 7 PM.

T

he College of the Sequoias Football team lost to Sierra College 41-28 on Saturday after blowing an 11-point lead heading into the 4th quarter. COS starting quarterback Raul Alvarez went down in the second quarter with a lower leg injury after he was hit scrambling out of the pocket. Replacing Alvarez was back up Jamaine Leverett. COS got off to a great start after returning the opening kickoff for 45 yards to the Sierra 46-yard line. The Giants weren't able to do anything with the good field position and ended up punting. Sierra put points on the board first with a touchdown pass by Anthony Silva to Calvin Burns for 75 yards. COS did not score at all in the first quarter. In the beginning of the second quarter, Alvarez went out of the game due to injury. Leverett came into the game and threw a touchdown pass on his first attempt to Jorvonte Jones for 24 yards. Leverett tossed his second touchdown pass to Dylan Pakau for 21 yards. The Giants went into halftime leading 14-7.

Sierra tied up the game early in the third quarter off a 36-yard touchdown reception by Ty Shepard from Silva. COS answered back with a tocudown pass from Leverett to Pakau for 20 yards, his second of the game. COS' Trey Washington was ejected from the game after getting into a fight on the field. A Sierra player was also ejected. Following the scuffle, Michael Cloutier booted a 39-yard field goal to bring the Wolverines within 4 points. The Giants answered back with a 55-yard touchdown pass from Leverett to Jones, his third of the game. The Giants lead 28-17 at the end of the third quarter. The start of fourth quarter was the turning point for Sierra. Silva connected with Isiah Walters for 30 yards to bring the Wolverines within 4 points. Sliva then tossed a 4-yard pass to Serge Lazaresku for a touchdown to give Sierra the lead. Late in the fourth, Cloutier kicked another field goal from 29 yards out. Sierra put the dagger in with a 8-yard run from Michael Davis to give them a secure lead, 41-28.

COS drove the ball down the field late but ended up turning over the ball on an interception. Leverett finished the game with four touchdown passes and 256 yards. D'Wayne Childs led rushing for the Giants with 13 yards. Pakau finished with 111 receiving yards and Jones with 79 yards. Both had two touchdown receptions.
