Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan has served in the U.S. military for over 35 years.

Friday, Oct. 26, Maj, Gen. Jeffrey ‘Jeff’ Buchanan gave a presentation on the relationship between the media and the United States Military. Buchanan is the Deputy Commanding General at Joint Base Lewis-McChorrd in Washington. Buchanan started off his presentation by introducing himself, and announced his two main points of discussion: free press in democracy and the media coverage in Iraq. In addition, Buchanan included the importance of the media, veterans and the importance of the attending audience. After his introduction, Buchanan moved on to the topic of the discussion: trust, and the importance of establishing and maintaining trust between the media and military. “The [Vietnam] media coverage created a big rift between the military and media,” Buchanan said. Buchanan went onto say that when he joined the military in 1977 all of his instructors were Vietnam veterans. During his first 10 or 15 years in the military, Buchanan was taught not to trust reporters, but instead to avoid them. “They were not be trusted, and our secrets

were not to be entrusted to them,” Buchanan ence from the media side, providing him a full-perspective view of the relationship. From said.

OSU-Corvallis Symphony revives ‘Potter’ through a musical tribute n

The ‘Halloween with Harry’ concert transformed LaSells Stewart Center with creative sets, music from the films, composed by John Williams By Hannah Johnson The Daily Barometer

Albus Dumbledore, in J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” calls music “a magic far beyond all we do here.” The “Halloween with Harry” concert allowed fans to relive that magic through a rendition of whimsical score that accompanied the films On Sunday, Oct. 28, the Corvallis-Oregon State University Symphony performed at the LaSells Stewart Center. They performed music from the composer John Williams, who wrote the music for the Harry Potter movies. The symphony was conducted by Rob Birdwell, a guest conductor. Although the concert didn’t start until 3 p.m., the doors opened at 1 p.m. for people to experience a creative interpretation of Diagon Alley, put together by Michelle Maller. Not only was Diagon Alley and the musical performance part of the experience, but letters from Potter fans were read and actors read excerpts from the series on stage.

Many people contributed to making this event a success, including Birdwell, Dr. Marlan Carlson, Erin Sneller, Marion Rossi, Tina Green-Prince and Michelle Maller. Birdwell enjoys being surrounded by many creative and talented people. “The Corvallis-OSU Symphony is an amazingly talented group of musicians who perform at the very highest level,” Birdwell said. Birdwell is a fan of John Williams and was excited for the opportunity to conduct this performance. Beth Ray was part of the planning committee. “This event is a great [opportunity] to see people, especially the children adoring the lobby display, dressing up and enjoying the symphony,” Ray said. The idea of “Halloween with Harry” came to because, like many orchestras, they wanted to connect with their audiences, especially newer audiences who may not normally attend events like these. “Marlan Carlson, the music director, and [the OSU] Symphony Board recognized that such a concert would not only be a lot of fun, but would also connect with a very wide audience,” Birdwell said. Michelle Maller was responsible for putting together Diagon Alley.

“I love being a part of hosting an event that is so unique and interesting, especially when there are so few family events in Corvallis,” Maller said. Maller said she enjoys the looks on kids’ faces when they enter and see how the building has been transformed into the wonderful world of J.K. Rowling. Since Maller is a Harry Potter fan herself, she loved being a part of making this event a success. “I really love being able to spread my Harry Potter nerdiness to others,” Maller said. “It’s been pretty fun to try to stick as closely as possible to the integrity of the books and films.” They realized they wanted to do an event before the concert, but still want it related to the musical performance. “We were not expecting the turnout we had last year,” Maller said. “[It] sold out and that made it a very easy decision to repeat the event this year. Guests were blown away by the event.” Because of the success they had last year, they decided to expand it past just Diagon Alley, and also had a Hogsmeade in hopes of accommodating the crowds better this year.

Halloween horror films split sides, heads

Calendar

Halloween has landed inconveniently in the middle of the week this year, but that’s no reason to miss one of the hundreds of movies crafted to scare the willies out of college-age audiences everywhere. With Internet access and a subscription to the “Watch Instantly” feature on Netflix, the door to horror is flung wide, offering hours of fun and pants-soiling terror. However, choosing the right slasher flick or psychological thriller can provide a scare of its own. F r i g h t e n i n g l y, “ Wa t c h Instantly” has a habit of featuring the second, third and sometimes even fourth movie in a series while failing to host the first. In this way, “Paranormal Activity” and “The Descent” are unavailable, but their sequels are. Tough luck if you haven’t already seen the originals. Black-and-white “Dracula,” with Bela Lugosi, is a throwback to the origins of horror. After acquiring the services of Renfield, the Count journeys to London where he wastes little time with frivolities and gets right to work partying and drinking blood. With truly unbelievable special effects and terrific acting across the board, Dracula offers a creepy and insightful view of the world before vampires started sparkling. For your annual dose of creepy children, look no further than “Children of the Corn,” a typical Stephen King film. A

The Netflix “Watch Instantly” feature offers internet video streaming of select titles, which can be searched by category. and “Deep Blue Sea,” which are true pearls. “The Reef” follows a group of people who run aground in shallow waters off the coast of Australia and must choose to sink or swim, stalked at every turn by a presence in the water. “Deep Blue Sea” challenges any attempt to guess who will die and when. Scientists decide that it would be a great idea if they made mako sharks’ brains bigger so they’d be better subjects for Alzheimer drug testing. The genetically enhanced sharks are held in a fool-proof — but not shark-proof — ocean facility. When the structure is compromised, it’s a fight against both the incoming water and the oncoming sharks. For side-splitting dark comedy, “Tucker and Dale vs. Evil”

is the movie to watch. A misunderstanding between two hillbillies and a group of young college students leads to a gristly, gory showdown. With plenty of gratuitous blood and viscera, this film excellently parodies the classic horror storyline and challenges stereotypes. Another excellent genre sendup is “I Sell the Dead,” a comedy about two grave robbers and their experiences with living and undead monsters, aliens and gangs of rival corpse-snatchers. There are many avenues for Halloween fun, but the horror film has persisted as a staple of partygoers everywhere. Don’t be afraid to try something new. And remember to look behind you.

tion in Iraq. “We didn’t have a good idea of Iraqi culture. The process of an election wasn’t established, [nor was] an idea of their values or culture,” Buchanan said. The Iraqi people had been forced to live a certain way, and it didn’t change overnight. The values of free election and press are starting to take hold; however, the biggest contribution actually goes to the Western media, which showed the Iraqi government the media could be trusted. Buchanan talked about how trust was key between him and fellow military personnel, reaching out to their neighboring bases and to units farther away. “We do need to be connected, we do need to trust each other,” Buchanan said. Buchanan’s main point was that trust is critical to our society, but also important in large international situations including peace treaties and diplomatic situations. In the second half of the discussion, Buchanan opened up the floor to questions. One question asked was what the greatest causes of tension between the media and military were. Buchanan answered it was the conflicting goals of the media’s desire for immediate coverage and the U.S. Military’s need for secrecy in order to not compromise current operations. At times, the U.S. Military

The Daily Barometer couple on their way to Seattle wind up in the town of Gatlin, Nebraska after hitting a child in the road. Seeking help, they come upon the only residents of Gatlin: a cult of weaponwielding children led by a soulless ginger and a priest-child, all who make it quite plain that the “outlanders” aren’t welcome. Along with Halloween treats, “Watch Instantly” also has its fair share of rotten-egg tricks. In “Curse of the Komodo,” scientists create giant komodo dragons whose saliva turns people to zombies, and two-dimensional characters with about as much depth as a puddle in July must escape the island before the military napalms it. More disturbing than the film itself are the 92 minutes killed watching it; you’ll wish you could “re-animate” the lost time. Speaking of resurrection, the television series “The Walking Dead” takes the word to the next level. When the dead rise and eat the living, Rick Grimes and his companions must weigh their humanity against their survival. Besides the internal conflicts of the group, there’s the constant struggle against being Walker meat; a single bite is fatal. If zombies just won’t satisfy, try a dip in the murky seas of shark films with “The Reef”

Paving a path for a healthy body, life Keep Halloween F Editorial

safe, festive

W

ednesday marks a college-favorite holiday, Halloween. With skanky referees, pandas and pirates stalking the Corvallis sidewalks, this mid-week holiday has opened an opportunity for pre-weekend and post-weekend parties — not to mention Wednesday night celebrations. This extended parting, however, is cause for some concern. Whether you’re partaking in such festivities or you’re simply an observer of the phenomenon, Halloween can quickly escalate from delightful to dangerous. In 2010, about 80 percent of the Oregon State University student population had tried alcohol, according to the National College Health Assessment survey on the OSU Student Health Services’ webpage. Naturally, it’s logical to assume most students attending Halloween parties are likely going to be drunk. Alcohol is fun, sure. We certainly enjoy stopping for a beer or a tequila sunrise after work — those of us who are 21 or older, anyway. Although we try to act responsibly, some buffoons we encounter seem to forget such manners. The Oregon State Police FlashAlert webpage displays current investigations, incidents and other little blips to generally inform the community. For example, last Wednesday, Oct. 24, they released an alert warning Halloween “party-goers” their costumes would not disguise their intoxication. Basically, don’t think you’re going to get away with staggering through town or swerving down Harrison without getting stopped. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s traffic safety facts compiled from data in 2010, there were, throughout the state, 10,228 fatalities as a result of drunk driving. This made up 31 percent of the total traffic fatalities for the year. The highest percentage of drunk drivers involved in these fatal crashes were ages 21 to 24. That’s us, guys! It doesn’t matter if you’re drinking or not, keeping an eye out could save your life. If you’re drunk, don’t drive. End of discussion. We don’t need you on the road, and we don’t want you on the road. Driving intoxicated is immature on your part, and scary as hell. If you’re not drunk and find yourself driving, be extra alert and careful. Drunkies have a habit of staggering off the sidewalk and through intersections. Some drunkies even work it out in their mind that they can handle the drive home — so be cautious. Even if your light is green or you have the right-ofway, take a second look. It could make the difference between making it home safely and getting your name on FlashAlert. Outside the issue of drunk driving, there’s the issue of personal safety. Alcohol lowers inhibitions and can make you more vulnerable to others. The OSU Sexual Violence Educational booklet states, “nearly two-thirds of college students experience some type of sexual harassment.” To avoid this, we suggest sticking to the buddy system, trusting your instincts and not being afraid to make a huge scene if you’re confronted by a sexual predator. Do anything you have to in order to stay safe. Halloween is fun and festive. So, let’s keep the memory of Halloween 2012 that way. Be safe. Be aware. Be smart. t

ollowing my previous column about allowing your body to love you, and my learned lessons in getting healthy, two things happened. First, I had an overwhelmingly positive response, which included people recognizing me on the street, and giving me compliments. To all of those people, thank you, it made my week. Second, I had multiple requests to write more about what I did to lose all of the weight. Many people have written guides to weight loss, some with the idea that all you have to do is change your diet, and you’ll start “shedding pounds” without having to do anything. Others claim you don’t need to change your diet, just take magical pills. For any of these guides, if they don’t include an exercise routine, or at least a suggestion, they’re bogus. Also, forget the pills. I don’t feel it necessary to add yet another guide that worked for someone and might work for you, in the world of losing a few pounds. Instead, I want to discuss some techniques that were critical for me, which can be applied to just about any goal or mission you have, weight loss

Alexander

Vervloet

The weekly rant - @RantsWeekly or otherwise. The first technique is probably the most important of all, which is to think of your goal in terms of checkpoints. Chances are, whatever your objective is, it’s going to take time and a lot of work. If you focus on the end product, the whole time it’s going to seem like it’s taking forever, and you’ll likely lose steam quite easily. Instead, the time should be broken up with realistic minigoals that allow you to feel and relish the progress. For me that was quite simply not worrying about what I saw in the mirror or looking down at my stomach. The second and lesser applied technique is to be consistent, but experiment. What I mean by this is, you should be getting into and following a routine, but at the same time you should be tweaking things here and there, always trying something new. I loved treating my weight loss as a science

experiment, trying to learn more about how my body worked, and if putting something different into it or doing new things with it had a different affect, good or bad, on my weight loss. Experimenting is really important, as it adds an element of fun and individuality to your mission, as well as keeping your mind involved and conscious of the journey. Just remember, as with any experiment, only change one variable at a time, not the whole formula. The third is less of a technique as it is a principle: don’t seek support from others. This is extremely counter-intuitive, and I’m sure plenty of people will disagree with me on this, but in my eyes it’s a huge land mine. All of your support should come from within. You control the building blocks to your goal, and seeking support externally adds a vulnerability that could knock those blocks down. I would almost argue the more people try to discourage you from what you’re doing, the more you know you’re doing it right. Obviously if what you’re doing is hurting you seriously, this probably isn’t the case. For

the most part, however, when people discourage you it’s due to an inner-human characteristic common in most, where we try to bring down those that are clearly stronger than us. All of this isn’t to say you shouldn’t allow support from others. Just don’t seek it, and don’t let it get to your head. Also, to clarify, when I say “support,” I don’t mean help when you need it. By all means, if something is too difficult to do yourself, ask for help. We’re human; we all need help in life. These three ideas helped me quite a bit in my path to being healthy and happy. I also found a lot of motivation reading books about positive mindset, and battling the resistance we find in ourselves. There are, of course, endless tips and techniques to accomplishing goals, but I often find these three are forgotten, lost or not even known. Hopefully everyone can find some use for them, no matter what you want to accomplish. t

Keep your religious genitalia in your pants R

eligion is a deeply personal thing. Most people would agree with this statement. How, then, can they be hypocritical enough to try to force their deeply personal thing onto someone else? Yes, that sentence reads like I’m talking about molestation, but I feel like I’ve been religiously molested when some random person on the street feels the need to tell me I’m going to hell because of things I can’t or don’t want to change about myself, things I’ve been genetically coded for and things that make me an individual. If someone’s imaginary friend doesn’t like me, well, that sounds like a personal problem to me — something that’s not my issue. If religion is something deeply personal, I honestly think it should be treated like other deeply personal things. That’s right. Religion is like genitalia. Don’t share it in public. Keep it under wraps until you’re in private, when you can share until your heart’s content with like-minded people. Don’t flash it at strangers or classmates like some creeper in a trench coat. The great thing about this country is our freedoms. We have the right to free speech, freedom

Irene Drage

The Daily Barometer of religion and freedom from persecution, as well as many others. However, freedom from persecution should be from more than just the law. I have never felt more uncomfortable in my life than when my friend’s Southern Baptist mother told her friends, in my hearing, that her son was only allowed to be friends with me so she could try to “save” me. Actually, the conversations she struck up with me about “saving my immortal soul” were more uncomfortable, though easier to escape. Freedom of speech means exactly that. I’m not saying I think people should be arrested for feeling the urge to preach to the masses, rather that they preach about things more suited to the public sphere than religion. If you want to preach religion, make use of those handy-dandy sanctuaries, mosques and temples. If you want to hand out religious texts on street corners, honestly, that’s something that’s a little uncomfortable for everyone involved. However, it’s not too skeevy as

long as you’re polite about it and don’t chase down or chat up the people who are obviously purposefully not making eye contact with you. Take your cues from the living-statue people who cover themselves with metallic paint and stand on corners with hats at their feet — everyone likes themselves a living-statue. Not so much someone who’s going to make them feel uncomfortable until they take a book they will just throw in the trash later. Really, forcing your books on people is only wasting money and resources. Being polite about it is only going to save you some. I know it might be hard, keeping your mouth shut when you see something going on that you don’t personally agree with. But this is America, and as long as it’s not illegal, you don’t have the right to stop it from happening. Your freedom to swing your fist ends at my nose, as the saying goes. If you don’t have the right to stop it from happening, you need to be an adult about it and turn away or look at something else, rather than glaring and indulging in some speech that feels pretty darn hateful from the other side of it. If you don’t approve of the free-

doms we have here in America, one of which is to apparently make you uncomfortable, feel free to move to some other country where there are fewer freedoms and no division between church and state. Vatican City might be a good fit. I hear the Middle East is nice as well. If I’m going to go to hell, I’m going to do it my way. t

Mannion should remain the starter S

EATTLE — It’s obvious who is going to garner the majority of the blame for Oregon State’s first loss of the 2012 season, and it’s likely Beaver fans will demand Cody Vaz takes over as starting quarterback after Sean Mannion’s worst performance of the season. But using that type of short-term memory isn’t always the best strategy for making decisions in football, and it definitely isn’t in this situation. Yes, that loss was painful for anyone affiliated with Oregon State football, but it’s important to remember where this program was only a few short weeks ago. After six games and six victories, it’s no surprise expectations for this Oregon State football team, from both the team and fans, were high — maybe even the highest they have ever been — going into Saturday’s game. Those high expectations coincided with my first observation as the clock hit 0:00 and Oregon State’s undefeated run came to an abrupt halt. The level of dejection and raw emotion from Oregon State players and fans was evident. Though OSU trailed for the majority of the game, it always seemed like this resilient Beaver squad would find a way to win, some way, somehow, like they have all year. The fact that they didn’t come out on top wasn’t only unexpected, it was confusing. My second thought was about the incredible elation from the home crowd. They had knocked off the No. 7 team in the nation, and it was clear that it was a feat they felt they had no business completing based on their reaction. I was standing just outside of the end zone at CenturyLink Stadium as the Washington student section poured onto the field in celebration of their upset victory.

It’s almost hard to remember all the way back to that opening game against then-No. 13 Wisconsin, when it was the Oregon State fans storming the field at Reser Stadium. They ran onto the field because they felt like they had won a game they probably shouldn’t have. It’s even harder to remember back to last season, when Mannion and company went through massive growing pains on the way to a morethan-disappointing 3-9 season. Last year, this loss would have seemed normal for most fans, and likely would have been shrugged off without too much thought. This year, immediate reactions from fans exiting the stadium consisted of disbelief mixed with dismay. To put it lightly, the change in attitude has been dramatic. But while so much has changed from then to now, one thing certainly has not. This team believes in Sean Mannion, and he is the quarterback of the present and future. There’s a reason why Mannion replaced Ryan Katz instead of Vaz last season, why he won the starting job again this summer, why he was named a team captain and why he took over the starting position once

again, even after Vaz dazzled in his two starts while Mannion was out with a knee injury. Mannion gives this team the best chance to win on a game-to-game basis, and is the desired option for the long-term future. Beyond the obvious physical advantages he has over Vaz — height, arm strength and accuracy — he has quietly developed into something even more. He’s become a vital part of this team’s heart and soul. After throwing four interceptions and being replaced in the defining moments of the game, no one would have blamed Mannion had he chosen not to give post-game interviews. I wouldn’t have blamed him if he had been the first to disappear onto the team bus following the completion of the game. But, not only did Mannion face the music with his head held high when the media swarmed him, he was one of the first to speak up in the locker room according to Brandin Cooks. He acknowledged his mistakes and vowed to be better. Players respect that type of honesty, and they respect what Mannion has done in his time at Oregon State. There’s no excuse for his performance, he said so himself after the game. Sure, it was his first start since his knee surgery two weeks ago, but rust is still no excuse for the decisions made. Regardless of the game, he’s the reason they are where they are right now. This team has grown as he has, and if it really wants to win the Pac12 Championship, it needs Mannion behind center. He had one bad game, and Oregon State lost its first game of the season. But had I told Oregon State fans before the season it wouldn’t have come until the seventh game, they would have laughed. And then when I told them it was for real they would have been beyond thrilled. It’s natural for the attitude and expectations to change since the season started, but that doesn’t mean one loss is the end of the world. Oregon State is 6-1, ranked No. 13 in the nation and still controls its own destiny in the Pac-12. Cody Vaz is a great backup quarterback, but he’s just that — a backup. This is Mannion’s team, and there should be no questioning whether he should start this coming week, let alone the rest of the season. Mannion has bounced back from a bad game before, and he will again next week. I don’t know for sure Mike Riley will send him out there to start the game next Saturday against Arizona State — and Vaz will do just fine if he’s given the title QB1 — but Oregon State’s best shot going forward is with the guy that’s gotten them to this point.

Huskies upset the undefeated Oregon State 20-17 Saturday by forcing turnovers, executing when they needed to By Warner Strausbaugh The Daily Barometer

SEATTLE — After a historic 6-0 start to the 2012 season, the Beavers finally came undone. A combination of sloppy offensive play, too many turnovers and the Huskies executing right when they needed to, led to a 20-17 loss for Oregon State (6-1, 4-1 Pac-12) in Seattle Saturday night. The perfect season is now over, and by all accounts, the Beavers let that game slip right through their fingers. “We kept shooting ourselves in the foot, that’s what it really was,” said sophomore wide receiver Brandin Cooks. “I feel like they weren’t stopping us, we were just doing little things to stop ourselves. That’s what this game was about.” Those mistakes were the turnovers OSU committed throughout the course of the game. In particular, sophomore quarterback Sean Mannion threw four interceptions in his first game back since having knee surgery two weeks ago. “That’s no excuse,” Mannion said when asked if he was too rusty after missing two games. The high volume of interceptions — Mannion now has seven in the last two games after only throwing one in the first three — could be a product of Mannion trying to force passes. “Obviously I want to make good plays, but I think I’ve also got to know when to live with a throw-away or we can even just punt and change field position,” Mannion said. With just over eight minutes

remaining in the game, Head Coach Mike Riley opted to pull Mannion in favor of Cody Vaz — who started the last two games with Mannion sidelined. “I thought Sean had struggled a little bit in there, and I thought it would be a great time to let Cody play,” Riley said. “We know he can play. He went in and did what he can do and made some plays, and that was good for us — almost gave us a chance to win.” Yanking the quarterback in the fourth quarter of a close game could set up for an interesting week of practice. Riley confidently placed Mannion back in the lineup last week. “I support Cody and our team 100 percent, no matter the circumstance,” Mannion said. “I know that’s their call to make. Would I have liked to play? Obviously. But at the same time, I know it’s about the team and it’s not about me.” The issue of who starts this week will likely be addressed at Monday’s practice, but Vaz — who went 7-for11 for 97 yards and the game-tying touchdown — has definitely made a case for himself. “We won’t have any talk about that tonight,” Riley said, in response to questions about who will start. Even though OSU gained 134 more yards of offense, the Huskies (4-4, 2-3) only had one turnover compared to Oregon State’s four, making all of the difference. Aside from not creating a lot of turnovers, the Beavers’ defense played well for the fourth straight game. “We played our hearts out,” said sophomore defensive end Scott Crichton. “But unfortunately, everything went their way. It was a good win for them.” An area OSU has played phenomenally this season has been its run defense. The Beavers ranked fifth

in the nation going into Saturday’s game. They still kept the Huskies to 99 yards rushing, but some key runs by Washington running back Bishop Sankey proved to be costly for OSU. Crichton responds to how successful Washington was running the ball. “Yeah, I was a little surprised,” Crichton said. “I knew they were good running the ball, but I just had a lot of confidence in our defense.” Execution on Washington’s end in crucial moments was what had the Huskies on the winning end of a game decided by a field goal. Washington’s offense got the ball in a tie game with 4:58 remaining and methodically drove down the field all the way to OSU’s 12-yard line to put in the game-winning field goal with a minute and a half left. “They ran some perfect routes to counter our coverages,” said senior cornerback Jordan Poyer. “Just little mistakes here and there that we made that were big.” All in all, the game ended, Washington fans rushed the field, and the Beavers’ hopes for a perfect season fell to the ground like Vaz’s incomplete pass to Kevin Cummings on 4th-and-19 at the end of the game. “They just outplayed us, out-physicalled us and we’re going to look at the tape tomorrow and learn from it,” Poyer said. “We’ve just got to forget about it,” Crichton added. Washington was one of only three wins for the Beavers last year, but this year the Huskies ended up playing spoiler to OSU’s undefeated season. “Very disappointing, very hard,” Riley said. “The key deal now is our reaction to it and where we go from here.” Warner Strausbaugh, sports editor On Twitter @WStrausbaugh sports@dailybarometer.com

The OSU group brings together themes of rhythm, language with Snyder’s poetry at the fore By Ricky Zipp

The Daily Barometer

While talking about John Lennon, an interviewee explained how Lennon could sit on stage in a chair, do nothing, sneeze, and the audience would say: that is the most genius sneeze of all time. With 600 people packed between the walls of the Whiteside Theater in downtown Corvallis, sold out for the first time in 10 years, this same idea could be felt in the energy of the room. After Gary Snyder was introduced he slowly stood up and sauntered to the stage, walked toward his microphone and the cheers seemed to be for his appearance alone — not just for the famous poet about to read before the Friday night Corvallis crowd. After adjusting some of his poetry books, Snyder welcomed the audience. “Hey buckaroos,” Snyder said. The audience’s cheers broke for a quick laugh while sitting back down. Snyder is known for his poetry reflecting back images of a human’s connection and experience within the natural world, so the audience was in for an interesting night of expression from one of America’s well-known poets. Snyder is a man who, as Charles Goodrich, director of the Oregon State University Spring Creek Project, explained in his opening address at Friday’s event, encompasses many facets beyond just a poet or his connection to beats like Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. But Snyder is also an environmentalist, a Zen Buddhist — even spending time studying at a monastery in Japan — and also a writer of poetry, receiving awards including the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for his book “Turtle Island.” Along with the Visiting Writers Series, the Forestry Services, and the Long-Term Ecological Reflections Program, the Spring Creek Project was able to bring Snyder out to Corvallis for Friday night’s event. The Spring Creek Project has been

around since 2003 and is in place to bridge the gap between science, philosophy and the written word in the appreciation of nature. OSU professor of philosophy Kathleen Dean Moore co-founded the SpringCreek Project eight years ago and continues as a senior fellow, while Charles Goodrich now works as the director. There are several different programs the Spring Creek Project is associated with, all of which are attempting to achieve their main goal. The Spring Creek Project mission is, “[to] bring together the practical wisdom of the environmental sciences, the clarity of philosophical analysis, and the creative, expressive power of the written word, to find new ways to understand and reimagine our relation to the natural world,” according to their website. One program in which they participate is the Long-Term Ecological Reflections. Centered in the Andrews Experimental Forest, the program helps in the preservation of nature through the written word, exploring how connections can be made between humans and nature over a long period of time. Goodrich relays the importance of the project, “Looking long term and letting the story unfold over long and careful observations.” The Andrews Experimental Forest, in Oregon’s Western Cascade Range, is one of 26 long-term ecological research sites in the United States funded by the National Science Foundation. The goal is to have scientific research possibly being done within an ecosystem over generations. The Spring Creek Project and LongTerm Ecological Reflections offer two different writer-residency programs where writers can go out and spend time at the Andrew’s Experimental Forest or a cabin at Shotpouch Creek. Writers can go and experience a specific location and build the knowledge of that area beyond a scientific study. The goal of this experience is to leave a well-documented history through written word over long periods of time, which allows for multiple knowledge bases to be passed on: one in the scientific record and

the other in the record of philosophical and artistic expression. As a poet himself, and spending 25 years as a professional gardener, Goodrich found a perfect fit for him at the Spring Creek Project. “There is an institutional split between the sciences and the arts,” Goodrich said. His job as director, and the job of the Spring Creek Project in general, is to try to repair that split. Goodrich has been influenced by literature his whole life. “I love the insights of science, [it] just [seemed] natural for me.” But how does one plan a symposium in a town of 50,000, at a venue that is trying to re-open its doors — the Whiteside Theater — and book a speaker like Gary Snyder? Well, Snyder has been sought after for years by the Spring Creek Project and the Long Term Ecological Reflections program. Goodrich talks about how Snyder said one day he would be more than willing to do an event, and every year they have requested him in hopes he would say yes. This year he did. Placing anecdotes in between his various poems, Snyder kept the animated audience entertained. He read more of his well-known poems first, and had to ask for applause to be put at the end of each set instead of each poem. After his first set of poems, including “Smokey the Bear Sutra,” which gained an applause from just reading the title, he opened his binder and read from fairly fresh and some unpublished work, labeling the first chunk of this group “Death Poems.” Coming up this week for Spring Creek Project is their Symposium “Words on Fire from a Scholar on Fire,” with Stephen Pyne as their keynote speaker. This event will be taking place this Thursday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. Located in Gilfillan Auditorium, the symposium will be discussing the use of language and description with respect to wildland fire.

After two early goals, Huskies come back to tie OSU 2-2 OSU women’s soccer can’t hold lead, finish road trip with one draw, one win By Grady Garrett The Daily Barometer

SEATTLE — Well, there was one Oregon State University team that jumped out to a fast start this weekend in Seattle. The Oregon State women’s soccer team scored two goals in the first 10 minutes of Sunday’s game against the University of Washington and earned itself a point courtesy of a 2-2 draw. Junior midfielder Haley Shaw scored in the sixth minute for OSU, which extended its lead to 2-0 in the 10th minute, when senior midfielder Megan Miller converted a penalty kick, her team-leading eighth goal of the season. But the Beavers (11-5-3, 3-4-3 Pac-12) didn’t play particularly well with the lead. The Huskies (10-6-3, 3-5-2) pulled to within a

goal with 1:10 left in the first half, and then leveled things in the 51st minute when an attempted clear by OSU junior defender Morgan Kennedy found the back of the Beavers’ net for an own goal. The Beavers, who were coming off a 2-1 loss — in the snow — to Washington State University, were disappointed that they let a two-goal lead slip. “It’s a little bit of a heartbreaker, just because we did so well in the first half,� Miller said. “We showed the potential level we can play at, it’s just a matter of closing out games. It was a heartbreaker to give up two goals and have [Washington] come back.� “It’s never fun to not win,� Shaw said. Miller said the Beavers’ mindset changed when they got the lead, and not for the better. “We kind of sat in and tried to maintain our lead,� Miller said. “We aren’t strong enough to do that. ... At this point in the Pac-

12, with the talent we face, we can’t afford to sit in no matter what the scores is.� Head coach Linus Rhode — who said the WSU-Washington road trip was the Beavers’ toughest of the season, travelwise — was pleased with how his team competed. “I think it was a fair result,� Rhode said. “Both teams had 14 shots, it was back and forth. We obviously got unlucky on their second goal, because it was an own goal, so that was unfortunate. But we kept it together, kept pushing.� Washington had seven shots on goal to OSU’s four, but the Beavers let several prime opportunities go to waste — including a pair of well-placed crosses by junior forward Jenna Richardson in overtime that teammates weren’t quite able to finish. The fast start to the game was encouraging for the Beavers, considering they had scored

first in just two of their previous eight games. In each of its previous two overtime games — 1-1 ties against Southern California and Arizona State — OSU had fallen behind and had to fight back to force overtime. “I’ve been telling our team, ‘Let’s be the team that gets on top for once, let’s be the team that goes out and makes our opponent chase the lead,’� Miller said. “That was something we were really emphasizing,� Shaw said. “We’ve been coming out slowly instead of on top, and today we came out and said, ‘Alright, we’re going to set the tone,’ and we did.� Shaw’s goal, her second of the season, came during a scramble in the box after a free kick by Miller. “It was a really good ball by Megan, Marissa [Kovac] got a good touch on it, and I was just there,� Shaw said. Miller’s goal, which came just over four minutes later, was her

Volleyball falls twice over weekend, now 3-9 in Pac-12 play The Daily Barometer

BOULDER, Colo. — Oregon State returns home with two added losses after suffering defeats at the hands of Utah and Colorado this past weekend. In both matches, the Beavers (13-11, 3-9 Pac-12) dropped three sets to one, winning the third set against the Utes (12-13, 3-9) and the second set against the Buffaloes (14-10, 4-8). Although Oregon State’s Camille Saxton led the game with 16 kills, the Beavers could not pull together a win Friday night against Utah. Oregon State had 26 attack errors, while Utah only had 17, and the Utes also had 10 more kills than the Beavers’ total. Oregon State took the lead early in the

first set against Utah, but the Utes managed to keep it close and take the set in the end. Aside from the third set and early on in the first set, Oregon State could not muster a consistent streak of good play that was necessary in order to beat Utah in Salt Lake City. The Beavers came back with renewed energy against the Buffaloes on Sunday, losing an exciting first set 25-20. Oregon State would, in turn, take the second set in demanding fashion, 25-15. The Beavers took the Buffaloes down to the wire in the third set, losing to Colorado 26-24. After the third set, Colorado found themselves in control of the momentum. Oregon State took a six-point lead early in the fourth set, but the Buffaloes didn’t give

up and came back for the win. A combination of good play on Colorado’s part, and lack of focus by Oregon State, is what ultimately led to a victory for the Buffaloes. The Beavers drop to 3-9 in Pac-12 play, and their chances of making the tournament have all but slipped away. Of their remaining eight opponents, the Beavers have only defeated one this season. Oregon State would need to win out in order to secure a tournament bid.

second goal by way of a penalty kick in the last three games. Now, OSU will turn its attention toward Friday’s regular-season finale — a Civil War showdown in Eugene. Sitting at 11 wins and sixth place in the Pac-12 standings, the Beavers could use a win to strengthen their case for a fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament bid. Players feel somewhat confident that they’ll get a bid — the selection committee has taken kindly to Pac-10/12 teams in the past — but know a win over the

Mike Reckmeyer and the Beavers dealt with sloppy conditions in Sunday’s 1-1 draw against San Diego State. OSU only has one game remaining on the schedule this season.

Oregon State men’s soccer was unable to separate themselves from San Diego State after 110 minutes of play Sunday, tying the Aztecs 1-1 after two overtime periods. The highlight of the game came from sophomore Glenn Paden for a spectacular diving header in the 19th minute of the game. “What a great goal by Glenn Paden,� said head coach Steve Simmons. “Hopefully it is [on] ESPN, one of the highlights.� Outside back Kevin Bodle, in his first start of the year, sent a beautiful ball from around 40 yards away into the six-yard box. Paden, completely wide open, laid out to put his head on the end of the ball for the score. “I really honestly didn’t think I was going to get there, but then just the very tip of my head got on it and luckily the keeper wasn’t there,� Paden said. Paden had a diving header earlier in the year that was called back for an offside position so he had been itching all season to get another goal from a diving header. The Beavers (6-8-3, 1-6-2 Pac-12) had a few other chances to score throughout regulation time, but the team could not connect for combi-

nation plays in the two extra overtime periods. San Diego State (6-7-3, 0-52) was connecting passes and looked the most threatening in the first overtime. The ball was in the Beavers’ attacking third for almost the entire extra 10 minutes of the first overtime. They were unable to get the final touch and shot off in the end and were unable to get the golden goal. “It’s pretty tough,� said senior midfielder Alex Penny. “I mean, that’s the kind of stuff we practice all the time and sometimes the ball doesn’t bounce your way.� Balls were bouncing and skipping all over the place on the wet pitch. Conditions on the field made it difficult for either team to develop any solid possession. With standing water on the field, the ball is subject to skid faster on the wet surface or is stopped in the standing water, slowing the play of the game and making the rhythm choppy and segmented. “It’s tough conditions,� said goalkeeper Matt Bersano. “It just means with everything we do just play it safe . . . but with the type of conditions with sitting water you don’t know what type of pass is going to sit or to glide.� The pitch was not the only thing that plagued the Beavers in their style of play against San Diego State. They were missing key midfield players due to yellow cards and injuries. It did open up more opportunities for the forwards to play off each other more,

but left the Beavers a little lost through the midfield without the extra man. Will Seymore was sitting because of too many yellow cards, and Roberto Farfan and Khiry Shelton were both playing hurt, which opened the door for players to step up. “All of a sudden, we have players who are unavailable,� Simmons said. “I thought Bjorn [Sandberg] and Smitty [Josh Smith] in the middle were warriors.� The extra support defensively could have helped the Beavers in the goal the Aztecs scored against them. San Diego State’s goal came from a missed tackle high in the midfield and without the extra help to cover back, Kevin Bick was able to get a shot off and beat Bersano for a goal. “It was a pretty good shot,� Bersano said. “The guy hit it from pretty far out in the middle split on the defenders and he got a good glide on the ground so he had me beat on that one.� At the end of the day, the Beavers came away with a disappointing tie but a performance to be proud of in the way they fought back. “It is a battle of wills at this point and I thought our guys were very willful today and they are disappointed without the win, we all are,� Simmons said. “But I will tell you right now, that edge and effort . . . that’s stuff that we want to play and stuff the fans want to see.� Sarah Kerrigan, sports reporter On Twitter @skerrigan123 sports@dailybarometer.com
