Various counties in West Virginia will be hosting Sesquicentennial festivities this week.

University preparing celebrations for West Virginia’s 150th birthday by celeste lantz copy desk chief

Come one, come all to celebrate West Virginia’s 150th birthday at West Virginia University. Tomorrow, WVU’s summer programming will host a sesquicentennial celebration. The festivities will include a large birthday cake from WVU Dining,

West Virginia trivia, corn hole games and prizes for students. Sonja Wilson, senior programming administrator, said the summer programming has been tasked with providing students taking summer courses various activities including a luau and scavenger hunt. “This is our third event, and it coincides with the

150th anniversary of our statehood,” she said. “The entire University community is invited to come to the party. “There will be random drawing for giveaways for the students, and everyone is welcome to play West Virginia trivia, where we’ll ask questions about the history of the state.” Wilson said the 150th anniversary coincided perfectly with their summer planning for activities.

‘Hollow’ to premiere on West Virginia Day by kaity wilson staff writer

A group of filmmakers have come together to tell the story of McDowell County, a struggling area in southern West Virginia that has been predicted by demographers to be just a few years away from extinction. “Hollow” is an interactive documentary about the people and problems in McDowell County. The film will be released on West Virginia’s 150th birthday Thursday. The content of the documentary was created by the community and contains personal documentary video portraits, user-generated content, photography, soundscapes, interactive data and grassroots mapping on an HTML5 website. It was designed to discuss the many stereotypes associated with the area, as well as potential for the future. Members of the community were able to take part in the filmmaking process by creating 20 of the 50 short segments themselves. “Most of the thoughts and opinions of our state are formed by outside forces looking in,” said Jason Headly, story director and writer. “A project like this gives us the opportunity to do the exact opposite – to let people see West Virginia from the perspective of the people who live

here.” Elaine McMillion is the director and producer of the project and a native of southern West Virginia. She utilized techniques gained through journalism in addition to experience in research, audio/video production and photography to visually express the story of McDowell through multiple mediums. McMillion hopes this interactive documentary will engage, educate and entertain people from all over the globe while bringing the McDowell County community together to share stories and brainstorm for a better future. McDowell County was formed in 1858 from part of Tazewell, Va. Almost 150 years ago, the area was considered unreachable. Although the additions of rails and roads improved this condition, it is still sparsely populated. By the mid-20th century, McDowell County’s seat of Welch had become the capital of North America’s coal energy empire, but today the city has a shockingly low population of about 3,000 people. McDowell County’s population peaked in 1950 at more than 100,000 residents but began a decline over decades to follow. There are currently only 22,000 people residing in McDowell County, nearly 80 percent less than

“WVU is so integral to our state. We are a land grant institution – the largest in the state. I think it’s a perfect fit, 150 is a big deal,” she said. The celebration won’t end tomorrow, though. According to Wilson, there will be various events during Mountaineer Week this fall. “We’re going to have some things for Family Fun Day to go along with our big birthday,” she said. “It’s not confirmed yet, but

we’re also planning to have another birthday party on Nov. 9, before the big Mountaineer Week football game, so all those students can enjoy the celebration, too.” Members of the Morgantown community are strongly urged to attend tomorrow’s event.

Chill Berry to bring frozen yogurt to High Street by caroline peters staff writer

Chill Berry, though small and locally owned, has more to offer than meets the eye of passersby and is sure to help locals cool off with fruity selections of frozen yogurt and fresh flavor combinations. Chill Berry owner Rajagopal Sundaram said that he chose High Street,

because it is the heart of Morgantown. Sundaram said that anyone can build a shopping center, but High Street is unique, historic and charming. “High Street seems to be the happening, energetic place for students,” he said. “The first thing is the University. The huge student population – and even the locals – are very health conscious. “Obviously everyone gets a sweet

Lincoln exhibit opening on campus this week by carlee lammers managing editor

Was he a principled and just leader? Or a politician with his own agenda? Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War, a traveling exhibit, will open on campus this week in conjunction with the West Virginia Day celebration, which will commemorate 150 years of statehood. The exhibit will explore how Lincoln used the Constitution to confront issues of slavery and wartime civil liberties. “This exhibit provides an opportunity to learn more about the complex issues Lincoln grappled with while fighting to preserve the Union,” said Myra N. Lowe, interim dean of

libraries at West Virginia University. For years, historians have debated Lincoln’s approach to addressing pressing issues during the civil war time. Rather than trying to sway patrons’ opinions one way or the other, the traveling exhibit will provide a closer look at Lincoln’s actions, and allow them to reach their own conclusions based on facts. “As a new president, Abraham Lincoln inherited enormous challenges,” said John Cuthbert, director of the West Virginia and Regional History Center. “This exhibition shows how he wrestled with issues of secession, slavery and civil liberties – all questions our country’s founding charter

left unanswered.” The exhibit is composed of various informative panels featuring reproductions of original documents including the Emancipation Proclamation, the Thirteenth Amendment and a draft of Lincoln’s first inaugural speech. Lincoln impersonator Michael Krebs will also be available to tell stories and answer questions concerning the 16th president’s attitudes toward West Virginia statehood. Cuthbert said Lincoln played an integral role in West Virginia’s statehood and believes the exhibit and events occurring this week will shed light on his decision. “Lincoln’s endorsement was essential to West Vir-

ginia statehood, as he could have vetoed the statehood bill,” he said. “We know that it was a decision that he struggled with due to the irony of fighting a war over the secession of states without the nation’s permission, yet permitting what many saw as secession of a section of a state without the state’s permission.” Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War will be on display at the Erickson Alumni Center July 2026. It will be open to the public from 8:15 a.m.- 4:45 p.m. Monday-Friday. For more information, contact Monte Maxwell at 304-293-0306 or monte.

House of Delegates elects Miley as new speaker


New West Virginia Speaker of the House of Delegates Tim Miley looks over the chamber at the Capitol in Charleston, W.Va., Tuesday. CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia’s House of Delegates elected Tim Miley as its new speaker Tuesday – though only after one of his fellow Democrats crossed party lines to vote for the GOP nominee. The Harrison County lawyer prevailed 53-44 over House Minority Leader Tim Armstead of Kanawha County during a brief special session convened by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin. Miley, 47, had been Judiciary Committee chair under former Speaker Rick Thompson, who resigned over the weekend to join Tomblin’s Cabinet as secretary of Veterans’ Assistance. Miley will preside over the House through the end of 2014, with all 100 seats on the ballot that year. The Legislature holds a regular, 60-

day session each year along with monthly interim study meetings during much of the remainder. June’s threeday series of meetings begin Wednesday in Wheeling. In a floor speech after Supreme Court Justice Robin Davis administered his oath as speaker, Miley described growing up in a bipartisan household. Thanking his wife, daughter, parents and other family members present, he pledged to focus on education and the state’s road and Internet infrastructure while linking both to economic development. Those voting Tuesday included newly minted Delegate Timothy Kinsey, a retired banker appointed earlier in the day by Tomblin to take Thompson’s seat representing Wayne County. The election tested the slim

majority of Democrats, who hold 54 seats. They faced a tight window to unite: Finance Chairman Harry Keith White had also sought the speakership before endorsing his rival on Friday. With three GOP delegates absent – Troy Andes of Putnam County, Amanda Pasdon of Monongalia County and Ron Walters of Kanawha County – Miley and Armstead followed a House tradition and each voted for the other. Delegate Ryan Ferns, an Ohio County Democrat, voted for Armstead during the roll call. “West Virginia first. Party second,” Ferns tweeted from his desk in the House Chamber. Ferns afterward said he objected to outside groups interfering with the House’s internal affairs. Several la-

bor groups endorsed Miley’s candidacy, and White had complained while in the running of the resulting lobbying. “I think there were bully tactics involved,” said Ferns, who had backed White. “I think it was excessive in the way it was done.” The state Chamber of Commerce had also weighed in, targeting several of Miley’s supporters by seeking to link them to President Barack Obama. The president’s deep unpopularity in West Virginia has become a recurring headache for fellow Democrats, who hold all but one statewide executive office as well as a majority of the Legislature and state Supreme Court. Ferns also said he has no plans to switch parties, re-

spects Miley highly and told his fellow Democrat beforehand he planned to vote for Armstead. Miley said he thanked Ferns for the headsup, adding that he can handle honest disagreements. “I would have liked to have gotten his support,” Miley said. “All that means is now I have to earn his support going forward.” Miley’s tasks also include deciding who should chair committees and fill the floor posts of majority leader and majority whip. Miley echoed his comments from his candidacy that he expected minimal change. “I expect most of the leadership team to resemble what you’ve seen before,” Miley said. While not committing to keeping White in charge of Finance, Miley said he ex-

pected the Mingo County banker to remain part of the leadership team. The interim meetings complicate the timing of any chair changes, Miley said, as they feature joint House-Senate versions of the regular committees. Judiciary Vice Chair Tim Miley of Marion County will step up in that committee for now, he also said. Miley joins Senate President Jeff Kessler of Marshall County as the top leaders of the Legislature. The northern lawmakers reflect a regional shift in that branch, which had long been dominated by southern legislators. Tomblin had been part of that bloc as a nine-term Senate president representing Logan County – until he became the first governor from southern West Virginia since the 1960s.

residents and families. Many have moved out of state while some have relocated to towns outside McDowell County in West Virginia. Schools have been consolidated, businesses have closed, and the current town of Welch

is made up of empty storefronts and boarded-up buildings. In 2001 and 2002 Welch suffered two devastating floods. Remnants of mud and mold covering the walls of abandoned buildings can

be still be seen throughout the city. Through all of this, however, the citizens who remain in the town have not lost hope. McMillion and her team of journalists, designers, programmers, filmmakers

and community members are very excited about the launch of this project. “I knew that although these places had lost their populations, there were still people committed to staying there with interesting stories to tell,” McMil-

lion said. The collaboration will go live at on June 20. More information can be found at

‘This Is The End’ beats expectations

Carol Fox A&E WRITER

You don’t often see the words “apocalyptic” and “comedy” paired together, unless it’s a year ago, and we happened to be talking about Harold Camping and his devotees. But if “This is the End,” which opened in theaters Friday, gives us any indication about how riotously funny the end of the world could be, suddenly Armageddon doesn’t seem so threatening. The film stars a fictionalized version of Jay Baruchel (“Million Dollar Baby,” “How to Train Your Dragon”), who travels from his home in Canada to visit his long-time friend and Canadian compatriot, a fictionalized Seth Rogen (who co-wrote and co-di-

rected the film with Evan Goldberg) at Rogen’s home in Los Angeles. Baruchel, who thinks Rogen has “sold out” and feels them growing apart, wants to spend his trip rebonding with Rogen by eating junk food, watching TV and smoking heaploads of weed. Though initially this is exactly what Rogen wants, too, he has obligations to his newfound Hollywood friends and drags Baruchel to a party at (again, a fictionalized) James Franco’s house. The party isn’t exactly a desirable space. Sure, it is filled to the brim with young Hollywood – Jason Segal, Mindy Kaling, Aziz Ansari, Paul Rudd, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Martin Starr all making an appearance – but a bitchy Emma Watson, a superfi-

cial Rihanna and a cokedout, douche-baggy Michael Cera highlight the frivolity and obliviousness of celebrities, and Baruchel is turned off by his surroundings. So, Baruchel decides to go to a convenience store for some cigarettes and a soda, and Rogen tags along. While at the convenience store, the men feel the earth quaking suddenly, and all of the store’s glass shatters. Immediately after, the people surrounding Rogen and Baruchel are sucked up into the sky by celestial blue beams of light. The men return to Franco’s for safety. Unfortunately for Rogen and Baruchel, hell breaks loose (literally) at this point. A hole opens up to the fiery pits of hell in Franco’s front yard, sucking everyone down its gul-

let except Rogen, Baruchel, Franco, and (fictionalized versions of ) Craig Robinson (“The Office,” “Hot Tub Time Machine”), Jonah Hill (“Moneyball,” “Get Him to the Greek”) and Danny McBride (“Your Highness,” “30 Minutes or Less”). The men decide to hole up in Franco’s home, using Franco’s precious artwork, which includes massive paintings of his and Rogen’s names, to board up windows and doors. Baruchel manages to correctly theorize what they are experiencing is the Christian biblical apocalypse. They are left behind on earth because they were sinners, but Baruchel also learns that there is still hope; they can still ascend to heaven if they do good things. The rest of the film

shows the men working together and against each other to try to survive. They must ration food, find water and contend with lone survivors and demons threatening their safety. Of particular interest is the return of a nowbadass Emma Watson expertly wielding an axe. The final scene takes place in Heaven, and it includes what we all really desire and expect when we get there – a Backstreet Boys reunion and spontaneous, synchronized dancing. The stars of this film work incredibly well together, and I’m certain they had a blast filming. Their bickering and backbiting are believable and hysterical, but the moments when they express love and adoration for each other – those are the

moments that really make this such a satisfying film. The bromance between Baruchel and Rogen (and Franco’s martyr-like care for Rogen) are sweet moments that show us that these men can do serious and meaningful; they’d just rather make us laugh. And that’s okay, because you definitely do that a lot. “This is the End” was better than “Superbad” or “Pineapple Express.” I can’t decide if it was the writing that did it or if Rogen’s face is just enough to make me giggle, but I laughed from beginning to end. “This is the End” was an absolutely enjoyable solid hour and a half. And if you appreciate the style of comedy these men are known for, you need to see it. daa&

New book takes in-depth look at families with only one child NEW YORK (AP) — No kids, one kid, four kids: There’s no end to the debate over why people decide on a certain number. But is one family configuration more scrutinized than another? Lauren Sandler thinks so. She delves into the myths and misconceptions about singletons in a new book, “One and Only,” out this month from Simon & Schuster. And she feels strongly about the subject, as a journalist and an only child raising an only child with her photographer husband, who’s one of two. The choice of one, the Brooklyn mom said, is often demonized and the pull to have more is strong at times. Based on scores of interviews with academics and only children, the book wasn’t intended as memoir, though Sandler’s family – her “lean team” of three – is woven throughout. While she’s content and confident her five-yearold daughter is doing great, Sandler hasn’t escaped the conflict. Her reaction when her husband suggests he get a vasectomy drives home the turmoil. “I burst into tears, run up to our bedroom, and throw myself onto the pillows like a heartsick teenager,” she writes. “Despite all the rational information that supports my reluctance to have another kid, all the research demonstrating that only children are fine, all the data suggesting the additional sacrifices another kid would require, making the choice not to have another child is still fraught with conflict. It’s an emotional struggle that, it turns out, no set of numbers and analysis can erase.”

A conversation with Lauren Sandler: AP: How has research on raising only children changed in recent years? Sandler: I don’t think it’s really changed. What keeps happening is people keep retesting, saying, ‘Oh, how could it possibly be true that all of these studies from all of these years ago have said that only children are just fine.’ And so they retest and then they find out, ‘Oh yeah, only children are fine.’ AP: So where does the notion come from that only children are lonely, selfish and maladjusted? Sandler: I’ve been puzzling over this for three years, and the best I can come up with is this sort of threepronged answer. No. 1, it was a story that needed to develop in an evolutionary biology sense, that in order to thrive as a species we had to have more of us, so that was important. And then we were an agrarian society, and in an agrarian society children were a work force and a life insurance policy, and if you wanted your family to thrive you needed to have a bigger one. But then the Industrial Revolution came around, then the women’s movement came around. We didn’t really come to terms with what women’s freedom looks like, and we didn’t really come to terms with how much society had changed, and so we kept telling this story. I’ve talked to researchers who think that it’s a story that people need to tell because having more kids is hard and you need to feel like there’s a reason behind it. AP: Is there an underlying discrimination in the culture against only children? Sandler: I was having a conversation with an only

child I met and she was telling me that about 10 years ago she was in a job interview and her lack of siblings came up, and the person she was interviewing with, the boss of this company, said, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t hire only children.’ And that was that. Can you imagine if she was any other group? I’m sure it’s illegal but I’m sure that no one even thinks about it in terms of being illegal because we’re not a race. We’re not any standard minority group. We just happen to be this group of people that the world has decided is a certain way even though hundreds of studies and decades and decades of research have shown that we just aren’t all that different. AP: What drives that nagging pull to have more? Sandler: I think that as parents we want our kids to be happy and to thrive.

We want our families to be happy, and we have society telling us if you have one kid, your kid’s going to be really unhappy. You’re going to have a miserable misfit of a child, but if you give your child a sibling you will have a happy family. The data tells us that most people have their first child for themselves and the second child for the benefit of their first. I feel like if you want two kids, three kids, five kids, no kids, great. Do what your heart tells you but don’t do what society is whispering in your ear, especially when it’s based on such fallacy. AP: When you’re raising only one, everyone seems to want a say. As an only yourself who is raising an only do you feel you’re under a spotlight in that respect? Sandler: If you choose not to have a child, like many people I know, then society

SUMMER IS CALLING 1 Month Unlimited


may mumble and grumble about how you’re not fully a woman, you’re a selfish person, and you’re going to mess up a ‘defenseless child’ by not giving them a sibling. I think that that feeling, that you are making a bad call and it’s going to hurt a child, is enough so that people feel like they can go from beaming at your adorable child in the subway or in the supermarket line to shaking their head and saying they wouldn’t do that to their child, which is a line that I’ve heard a lot. AP: In light of all the positives you’ve rounded up on the benefits of having an only child, including the financial

benefits, you seem to remain conflicted about it. Can you explain that a bit? Sandler: I know my daughter would be a great big sister and I love babies, and I love being a parent more than I ever thought that I would. I love the delicious closeness that you have with a small child, and you know, my kid’s five. I know that type of delicious intensity with a small kid is eroding. I know that that’s going to come to an end. That makes me feel like, ‘All right, I’m pretty sure that this is what’s going to be the best choice for the three of us, but I’m always open to the idea of change, or the notion that the heart can swerve.’

150 years: an outsider’s view

Our beloved university wouldn’t exist without the state it’s built in. So, at 1:50 p.m. tomorrow, as the bells toll to commemorate the day West Virginia was admitted to the Union as the 35th state, we should all stop for a moment. There’s so much to appreciate about West Virginia, though, aside from its ability to separate from Virginia. You’ve heard it all before, but let’s try another perspective: those who weren’t born and raised in the good ol’ Mountain State. West Virginia University boasts a diverse student and faculty popula-

tion, from all across the United States and around the world. We’re all here with a common goal in ind – to gain or provide a quality education – but there’s a little bit more to it than that. Some faculty members were drawn to the area with the promise of gainful employment but have stayed because of the breathtaking view and the ability conduct research and projects, ranging from complicated physics experiments to compiling a collection of West Virginia folklore for a world-wide competition. Some students choose to

be a Mountaineer to take advantage of WVU’s affordable tuition or lax admissions office. But most continue the entire undergraduate – and graduate – program because the people are genuine, the seasons are varied, and the opportunities (if you know where to look for them) are abundant. Yes, West Virginians often get a bad rep. Luckily, though, that doesn’t deter thousands of new students and faculty members from choosing West Virginia each year. What really keeps us here, when there are plenty of opportunities

elsewhere? It could be the hospitality. Go much farther south, and the openness becomes overwhelming, or much farther north, and the apathy becomes hurtful. West Virginians are genuinely good people who welcome “outsiders” with open arms and are willing to share anything and everything. It could be the food. The cuisine is quite unlike anywhere else, especially considering you can’t buy some of the specialties anywhere else. Pepperoni rolls are practically ambrosia; ramps are decidedly less so. It could be the scen-

ery. Rolling mountains, a mild climate and hordes of wildlife all make the state special. You can drive 20 minutes into the wilderness and find patches of sour grass, wild berries and types of bark you can chew on. You can walk five minutes and be completely surrounded by serene wilderness. You can drive two minutes in the dark and run the high risk of hitting deer, possums and myriad other small animals. It could be the attractions. West Virginia has “The World’s Best” something in every county. There’s a hot dog joint in Fairmont that serves dogs

with only mustard, onions and hot sauce. Chester, W.V.a., boasts the world’s largest teapot. All around the state you can find caverns filled with old wives tales about children falling into cracks and becoming part of the walls or pathways that seem to defy gravity. Whatever it is, there’s something about West Virginia that draws you in. Call it whatever you want – a passthrough, low cost of living – and don’t claim it as your hometown. But admit it; you’ll always have a small part of you that calls the West Virginia hills home.


Manchin under fire from gun voters and interest groups KIRK AUVIL columnist

It seems that these days, Joe Manchin just cannot catch a break. Last week we took a look at his inescapably scurrilous perfidy, which may very well double student loan interest rates. It was a tale of Manchin refusing to stand with his constituents, instead throwing in with Republicans to make education less affordable. But now Manchin is under fire from a group he has long counted as his ally: the National Rifle Association. It’s no secret that Manchin has courted the NRA and gun-rights voters for years now. It is doubtful that he ever really had a choice in the matter. Getting elected in West Virginia means genuflecting at the altar of gun worship, and Manchin wasted no opportunity to pose with a rifle or release a photo of him hunting. It was a sweet deal for him; he can take nice pictures looking every bit the rugged West Virginia frontiersman while reassuring gun owners and the NRA that he was a man who would never take any action that might result in gun regulation. This love affair between Manchin and gun owners continued fruitfully over the


West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin meets with Sandy Hook Elementary School families and friends of victims on Capitol Hill Wednesday in Washington, D. C. years, and it paid great dividends in Manchin’s political career as he climbed the rungs from the state legislature to the Governor’s office, and then to the Senate. But when you’re in the Senate, in the national spotlight, sometimes a very un-

comfortable thing happens; an issue comes up, and the Senate is expected to deal with it. Manchin had never really been forced to make decisions that might alienate some of his constituents for the good of the country be-

fore, so it surprised everyone when he announced that he and Sen. Toomey had created a gun control bill that would require background checks on those attempting to purchase firearms. The bill was fairly mild, with strong language pro-

hibiting the creation of any “national gun registry.” This of course did not stop opponents of the bill flat-out lying through their gleefully disingenuous teeth at every given opportunity. And now Manchin is learning the hard way a lesson that many politicians have already learned: no good deed goes unpunished. It was easy for him to skate through West Virginia’s state government just rubber-stamping anything that his coal company financiers asked him to. Now that he’s on the national stage and has to consider issues bigger than coal, his first foray into the waters of responsible government have made him a marked man in gun enthusiast circles. The NRA has now started to run attack ads condemning Manchin’s supposed anti-gun stance, trying to tie Manchin to President Obama and, for some reason, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Mind you, the ads say nothing except that he is apparently working with the President, but in West Virginia that is all you need. They are doing their best to rile up West Virginians to vote Manchin out of office. On this one issue, you really have to sympathize with Manchin. It’s like he is dealing with a three-year-old

who starts screaming and throws a tantrum whenever you mention that it might be time he took a bath. Manchin – and for that matter, any politician from an area full of gun rights advocates – is unable to start a dialogue with gun owners or interest groups, because they just say, “Back off our guns, or we’ll have to vote you out of office.” So, now the game is afoot. Manchin will need to find a way to mitigate the damage the NRA and other gun groups such as West Virginia’s Citizens Defense League are doing to his reputation as a progun senator. He has begun to run his own ads to fight back against the NRA’s assault. And while Manchin certainly doesn’t deserve any sympathy in the grand scheme of things, in this one instance you just have to shake your head and sigh. When the wildly popular senator from West Virginia attempts to better the country and place the national good ahead of petty politics, he is skewered by his own supporters. When he promotes the insidious agendas of wealthy and powerful interest groups such as coal, natural gas and pharmaceutical companies, he gets fat checks and staunch supporters for his reelection bid.

WVU Turkish Student Association stands with protesters by seda yildirim

wvu turkish student association

Since Monday, May 27, citizens of Istanbul, Turkey, from all backgrounds have been staging a peaceful resistance in Gezi Park, Taksim. The protest’s goal was to protect the park, its trees and landscape from a large government project that would transform the public park into a shopping center. The demolition of the park can be recognized as yet another incident of the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s administration’s ongoing appropriation and privatization of public and common resources with no respect for participatory democracy, public opinion and judicial process. Since the peaceful occupation started, Turkish police have repeatedly intervened with disproportionate use of force – illegal both under the Turkish law and international law obligations of Turkey. The riot police set occupiers’ tents on fire and used enormous amounts of tear gas, CR and CS relentlessly, causing serious injuries. The reckless use of tear gas by the police is proof that bystanders who have nothing to do with the protests

are also victims of police brutality. As of June 11, hundreds of thousands of people in Istanbul and other cities are still resisting against the Erdogan administration’s policies while the brutal attacks on the protestors continue. Despite all those, Prime Minister Erdogan refuses to respond to the requests of the protestors and does not attempt to stop the violence. He never condemned the police brutality but rather instigated more tension by saying that he could gather millions against the peaceful protestors. Prime Minister Erdogan’s ignorance toward the uprising, apparent in his undermining the millions on the streets as a few looters (chapulcu), creates a legitimate concern as to his priorities as the leader of our country. We are concerned about the magnitude of human rights violations and the increasing fear and oppression in Turkey. The disproportionate use of force by the administration against its own citizens who are peacefully exercising their constitutional rights simply cannot be justified. The Turkish Constitution, much like the U.S.’s, guar-

We are here to reaffirm that the freedom of thought and expression, and the differences in opinions are essential in any democratic society. We are here to remind the Turkish Govern-

ment its obligations under international law to respect human rights, including but not limited to women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, minority rights and the right to a sustainable environment. We also condemn the silence of the mainstream media. While we are fol-

lowing the news through social media and foreign news agencies (i.e. CNN International, BBC, etc.), the silence of Turkey’s mainstream media is astonishing and extremely concerning. We demand an immediate end to police brutality on the streets and elsewhere. We demand

the responsible parties be held accountable and justice be maintained consistent with the people’s rights and freedoms. To our friends, brothers and sisters in Turkey: we are outraged by and full of sorrow for the physical and psychological violence that you are being subjected to.

‘Addam’s Family’ supplies laughs


Members of the Addam’s Family emerge from the back of the stage amid eerie props and fake smoke.


“The Addams Family Musical” national tour took the Creative Arts Center stage Sunday to wrap up the 2012-13 University Arts Series. The Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre buzzed with excitement as audience members moved quickly to their seats to see their favorite mysterious, spooky family. As the cast made their final preparations for the show backstage, audience members brushed up on their Addams Family trivia. The original Addams Family quickly evolved from Charles Addams’ cartoon drawings and became a hit with the public through multiple TV shows and motion picture productions. The theater was packed to the very last row with fans of all ages waiting to see the “ooky” family come to life on stage, and audience members had high expectations. National-touring productions, such as this musical comedy, often exhibit the same quality show that you would see on Broadway; the set, costumes, and choreography often remain the same. The lights began to dim, signaling the show was about to start, and the orchestra began to play the

Addams family theme song. Audience members clapped along as the orchestra began the overture. A spotlight appeared on the velvet curtain and audience members waited eagerly to see which one of their favorite characters would appear on stage first. Much to the audience’s amusement, Thing, a beloved decapitated hand that appeared regularly on the television series, opened up the curtain and started the show. The show began with Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and Lurch walking around in a graveyard visiting family members. Accompanied by their ancestors, the family celebrated what it meant to be an Addams with “When You’re an Addams”. After the annual celebration of life (and death) was over, Gomez released the ancestors to go back to their crypt. Uncle Fester, however, had a different plan. He explained to the audience and to the ancestors that little Wednesday had fallen in love. Fester went on to explain that the boy, Lucas Beineke, and his parents were coming over for dinner, and he needed the ancestors help to make it go as smoothly as possible. Meanwhile, back at

the Addams residence, Wednesday could not hold in her secret any longer. She told her father about her boyfriend, who she intended to marry, and made him promise to keep her secret from Morticia. Wednesday wanted to have “one normal night” and have both families get along so they could announce her engagement. The first act of the musical grew more complicated when tensions grew between members of the Addams family. Gomez was put into a very stressful predicament, as he loved both his daughter and his wife. He wanted his daughter to be happy, so he agreed to keep her secret; however, this was the first time he ever kept something from his wife and couldn’t help but feel guilty about it. Sensing that Gomez was keeping a secret about Wednesday‘s strange behavior from her, Morticia planned to leave him if he didn’t tell her what was going on. Pugsley, worried that Wednesday would stop torturing him now that she’d found Lucas, schemed to break up the relationship. The plot, while dramatic at times, was very humorous. Clever and witty lines exchanged between char-

Cast members dance among graves during Sunday’s performance. acters, uncomfortable first impressions and two opposite families stuck under one roof left audience members laughing throughout the evening. Intricate, movable sets and props amazed audience members. At one point in the show, Gomez sliced a tassel off of the stage curtain with his fencing sword. The tassel fell to the ground, then much to the audience’s disbelief, jumped up and walked off stage. Cousin It also made an appearance as people settled back into their seats after intermission. The plot finally resolved itself in the second act as Morticia forgave Gomez,

the two families finally got along, Wednesday told her mother about her engagement, and Pugsley was comforted by the fact that Wednesday would still torture him. The audience was captivated by the incredible talent of all the Addams Family cast members. The energetic, precise choreography amazed audience members, especially in “Tango de Amor,” a dance between Morticia and Gomez near the end of the show. The ensemble demonstrated a powerful ability to belt songs and hit notes perfectly with seemingly little effort. The orchestra, lighting and sound crew,


and everyone behind the scenes did a fantastic job in making this production come to life. “It was phenomenal! I loved everything – the dancing, the singing ... everything! I would love to see it again”, said an excited audience member in the lobby after the show. Audience members talked about their favorite moments of the musical as they exited the CAC. “I thought it was really well done,” said Alyssa Marshall. “I thought the set was beautiful, the acting was spot-on, and everyone was extremely talented.” daa&

M.T. Pocket’s 10-minute Play Festival comes to a close BY SHAWNEE MORAN A&E WRITER

What happens to a sock when it gets lost and separated from its match? How intense can a game of bingo at a nursing home be? Many of life’s fascinating questions were answered through the final performances of the M.T.

Pockets Theatre Company’s 10-minute Play Festival this weekend. While the first weekend of the festival was solely devoted to local plays, this past weekend was filled with creative work from non-local playwrights. From Florida to New Zealand, M.T. Pockets acquired an overwhelming amount of submissions

for the festival. The plays that were selected and performed at M.T. Pockets were written by a diverse audience, which included people of all ages and writing experiences. James McLindon, a successful playwright who wrote “Starfish Army” for the 10-minute Play Festival, has previous experience with writing and publishing plays. His full-length work, which includes “Salvation” and “Distant Music,” is being produced in several different states this year. Spencer Emerson OpalLevine, on the other hand, has only had a few years of experience writing plays. This 10-year-old from Sarasota, Fla., wrote “Sox,” a tale of two forgotten socks, for the festival. Spencer was the youngest winner of the 10-minute Play Festival at M.T. Pockets. Many familiar faces filled the audience of this local community theater to celebrate and support their friends and family. After the

high-energy, skillful performances last week, audience members returned to see what the remainder of the festival had in store. “It was so pleasant last weekend that I had to come back,” one audience member commented before the show. Several actors and directors from last weekend also sat in the audience to show their support. It was clear through easy, cheerful conversation that the actors and directors had a strong relationship with one another. Audience members seemed more like a tightly knit family rather than strangers. “M.T. Pockets is definitely a family, but they’re very welcoming towards volunteers,” said actress Louisa Copeland. “After a few rehearsals, it’s easy to feel like a part of the group.” The evening began with a series of comedic plays with witty dialogue and cleverly written lines. The audience was very responsive to the jokes and filled the theater with laughter. Audi-

ence members struggled to breathe during the plays and rose to their feet when the performers came to take their bows. After the end of each performance during the twoweek-long festival, audience members voted on their favorite plays of the evening. Audience members rated their top three plays of the evening based on overall content. After the votes had been counted on both evenings, the winning plays were proudly displayed on the M.T. Pockets Facebook page. The first weekend’s results included David Beach’s “Say Hi to Mick Jagger” stealing first place, followed by “Crush and David” by Josh Nichols in second place. “Anatomy” by Tracy Turner finished third, and “I’ve Never Been Called Sexy Before” by Beau Bowden took fourth place. First place for the second weekend was tied between Sam Wallin’s “Anniversary” and Jo Starzyk’s “Bingo: The Last True Blood Sport.” “New

Years Eve” by David MacGregor came in third place, and “Sox” by Opal-Levine followed in fourth place. “Thank you to all of the playwrights from across the globe for submitting scripts and sharing your work,” M.T. Pockets said on their Facebook page. “This was an amazing experience for not just the directors and actors but also for our patrons. A special thanks to those who came both weekends.” If you happened to miss the 10-minute Play Festival this year, fret not; with the overwhelming amount of entries submitted this year, M.T. Pockets is already looking forward to next year’s festival. And with plenty of productions between now and then, M.T. Pockets is morethan-willing to open their doors for those wishing to explore every aspect of theater. For more information on future productions and volunteer opportunities, visit daa&

Rose blooms after 17-year wait for major title

Justin Rose kisses the trophy after winning the U.S. Open golf tournament at Merion Golf Club on Sunday. (AP) — Ever since Greg Norman’s final-round implosion allowed Nick Faldo win the Masters in 1996, a generation of fine English talent has come up short in golf ’s four major championships. With his seven top-3 finishes, Lee Westwood’s near misses are a thing of golfing folklore. Luke Donald has been ranked No. 1 but never come that close down the stretch in a major. Ian Poulter saves his best for the Ryder Cup, while Paul Casey’s star has fallen since his breakthrough year in 2009. Finally, after a 17-year wait, England has a major winner in U.S. Open champion Justin Rose. The English public has long held high hopes for Rose since he chipped in on the final hole to finish fourth at the 1998 British Open at Royal Birkdale as a skinny 17-year-old amateur. His career has taken many twists and turns since, but he realized his vast potential with a oneshot win at Merion on Sunday. Rose is England’s first U.S. Open champion since Tony Jacklin in 1970. “He had that audacious chip in at Birkdale when he was 17 and then witnessed the difficult time he had after turning pro and all the struggles that he had, and to fight through that takes a lot of courage and what was shown was exactly that,” Jacklin told BBC Radio 5 Live radio on Monday. “He’s a good guy and he’s good for the game and he hopefully will open the door for more British players to give us some of the same.” The modest, mild-mannered Rose is among the most popular players on the circuit and his victory has been well-received, in England and beyond. “Best player in the world the last few years,” 2010 US Open champion Graeme McDowell said on Twitter. “Major much deserved.” Ror y McIlroy also tweeted his congratulations, saying the victory “couldn’t happen to a better lad.” “Rose to the Top,” was the headline in the English newspaper The Sun. “Rose’s Sweet Smell of Success,” said The Independent. Most of the English papers ran photos of Rose on the 18th hole, looking upward and pointing his fingers to the sky in tribute to father Ken, who died of leukemia in 2002. “Father’s Day was not lost on me,” Rose said. “You don’t have opportu-

nities to really dedicate a win to someone you love. And today was about him and being Father’s Day.” British golf has rarely had it this good the past couple of years. Donald, Westwood and McIlroy took turns at No. 1 in 2012. McIlroy, McDowell and Darren Clarke – all of Northern Ireland – have won majors since 2010. Britons were the bedrock of Europe’s Ryder Cup successes in 2010 and 2012. Rose made birdie putts on Nos. 17 and 18 on the final day of last year’s match at Medinah to clinch a stunning singles win over Phil Mickelson, one of the catalysts for Europe’s record comeback against the United States. On that day, Mickelson stood back and applauded Rose for his courageous play on the greens. Nine months later, it was the same player who suffered at the hands of the 32-year-old Englishman, finishing one shot behind for a sixth second place at the Open. Rose’s technique, which held up so well at Merion as he calmly made par on the unforgiving 18th under intense pressure, has always been a thing of beauty. It helped him capture big amateur tournaments when he was 14 and 15. By the time he’d won the silver medal at Royal Birkdale in 1998 for being the highest-placed amateur, comparisons were already being made with Faldo. Rose turned professional the very next day but missed 21 cuts in a row. Victories in the Dunhill Championship and British Masters in 2002 confirmed his potential but it wasn’t until last year that he really became a force, winning at Doral for his first victory in a World Golf Championship. “I think the fact that it hasn’t been easy for him, took him a while to get where he did, has meant that he is a great inspiration for everybody here,” said Chris Gotla, general manager of North Hants Golf club where Rose played as a teenager. “Everyone here knew how good he was going to be.” Rose, who was born in Johannesburg and moved to England with his family when he was 5, was playing in the final round with Donald, who fell away after a poor start and tied for eighth – seeing yet another chance at a major slip by. The 32-year-old Rose has made that breakthrough, though. Plenty more could now follow.

football opponent preview

WVU to face FBS newcomer Georgia State by michael carvelli sports editor

One week after its Big 12 Conference opener against Oklahoma, the West Virginia football team will return to Morgantown for a showdown against Georgia State at Milan Puskar Stadium. This season will mark the Panthers first as an FCS team, as the school is scheduled to begin full membership in the Sun Belt Conference July 1. They will head into their first season at the highest level of college football coming off a 1-10 record in FBS play in 2012. Geor-

gia State lost its 10 games by an average of nearly 27 points per game and gave up at least 30 points in all but two games. Three teams scored at least 50 points against the GSU defense, while the Panthers’ offense only added to their difficulty, scoring 20 or more points in just four games. Georgia State’s football program is still relatively new, and 2013 will be just its fourth season in existence. In the program’s first three seasons, the Panthers have taken on three FBS teams: Alabama (2010), Houston (2011) and Tennessee (2012). The teams

have defeated the Panthers by a combined score of 170-20. But this season will be the beginning of the Trent Miles era of Georgia State football after Bill Curry announced his retirement. Miles comes to Georgia State after spending the past five seasons as the head coach at Indiana State. Before that, Miles had stints at Washington, Notre Dame and Stanford as a running backs and wide receivers coach. Offensively, the Panthers will be led by senior wide receiver Albert Wilson. The Port St. Lucie, Fla., native was an all-Colonial Ath-

letic Association selection at both receiver and as a return specialist last season. Wilson caught 48 passes for 947 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior, while averaging 164.5 allpurpose yards per game. With starting quarterback Ben McLane gone after throwing 10 touchdowns last season, Ronnie Bell is expected to fill in as center for Georgia State. Bell served as McLane’s backup a season ago and struggled at times, completing just 50 percent of his passes and throwing 10 interceptions in his 67 pass attempts with just three touchdowns.

Up front, the Panthers will have a reliable anchor on the offensive line to pave the way for an inexperienced running game with senior offensive tackle Grant King. Defensively, Georgia State has some of its best players from last season returning. Sophomore linebacker Joseph Peterson led the team in tackles as a freshman, and the Panthers will return Theo Agnew and Terrance Woodard on the defensive line. Agnew had 60 tackles and two sacks in 2012 after transferring to Georgia State from Massachusetts.

Woodard was recently chosen as a third-team all-Sun Belt player by Phil Steele after being named the Panthers’ defensive MVP a season ago at noseguard. Woodard finished his junior season with 59 tackles, one sack and a fumble recovery. Georgia State will also have one of the nation’s better punters in Matt Hubbard. The junior punted 59 times with an average of 43.1 yards per punt a year ago. The Mountaineers will take on Georgia State on Sept. 14 at noon.


High school prospects shine at 7-on-7 camp by greg madia multimedia editor

This weekend, the West Virginia football program held a seven-on-seven tournament that brought some of the area’s best skill players into Morgantown. On both Friday and Saturday, high school programs within the region participated in the event, and with solid talent on the field, WVU coaches were able to get a look at some possible prospects. Tournament champions, Gateway High School (Pa.) had several standouts shine throughout the weekend. After dominating Friday night, the stage was set for Saturday’s elimination day. In their first two games on Saturday, Gateway was able to run Hurricane (W.Va.) off

the field simply from pure talent. Anthony Davis, surprise visitor and WVU target, along with Temple commit Delvon Randall proved to be as advertised. Davis showed off incredible coverage skills ranging from left to right at the safety position, totaling five interceptions in just his first two games. The Gateway star, Davis holds offers from 26 total schools including Nebraska, Penn State, Texas Tech and Vanderbilt. His lead recruiter is Tony Gibson, who was seen talking to Davis periodically throughout the weekend. Randall, on the other hand, was certainly the offensive star for Gateway, as he was able to make more than a few leaping touchdown grabs. Randall, being

recruited more on the defensive side of the ball, certainly showed off his natural ability on both sides. A nice complimentary piece for Gateway was Zaihre Regus, who does a nice job of catching the football in the middle of the field. At 5-foot-10 and 205 pounds it could be hard to find a natural position for him on the field. Regus caught a few short comeback route touchdowns in addition to splitting the field, getting into the seam for a score. Regus doesn’t have any offers but has talent to play football at the D-1 level either as an h-back or linebacker. Gateway got a boost prior to their third game when WVU commit Ricky Rogers decided to help his teammates enroot to the tour-

nament title. Rogers, after sitting out both Friday night and Saturday morning, was valuable in key games against Coatesville High School (Pa.), St. Frances High School (Md.) and Martinsburg High School (W.Va.). Rogers showed he can run the deep straight line route and slant route well. Rogers made a few really good plays with his hands, including one on the sideline right in front of his future head coach, Dana Holgorsen. Holgorsen quickly patted Rogers on the back and said, “That a way, Ricky.” In the championship against Martinsburg, Rogers caught five passes for one touchdown, while only dropping one ball. Outside of the champi-

onship Gateway team, St. Frances High School athlete Quantaye Battle, and Elizabeth Forward athlete Jaquan Davidson grabbed the eyes of the West Virginia coaching staff. Both Battle and Davidson played quarterback for their teams but most likely will be moved to different position at the next level. Battle is probably better suited to play safety, while Davidson could play either as a slot receiver or a cornerback. Davidson holds an offer from West Virginia, while Battle does not. One other outstanding athlete who participated in the event was Michigan commit Chase Winovich from Thomas Jefferson High School (Pa.). While already committed to Brady Hoke’s squad, Winovich was there

just to play alongside his teammates. WVU grabs two local commits Both offensive tackle Amanii Brown and tight end Stone Wolfley of Morgantown High School have committed to West Virginia. Brown joins Gateway High School wide receiver Ricky Rogers and quarterback William Crest of Dunbar High School (Md.) becoming the third verbal commit of the 2014 class. Brown, at 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds, will have to put on weight before playing but does have the frame to fill out that weight. Wolfley became the first commit of the 2015 class for West Virginia.


Samara leaves West Virginia for Wisconsin job by michael carvelli sports editor

After spending three seasons with the West Virginia tennis program, head coach Tina Samara has accepted the head coaching position at Wisconsin. “As a student-athlete at the University of Georgia, I won three national titles, with two being won at Nielsen Tennis Center in Madison, Wis.,” Samara said in a letter Monday. “Those are memories that I have forever held near and dear to my heart and memories that drew me toward Wisconsin.” Samara finished 16-47 in her three seasons at WVU after taking over for Marc Walters before the 2010 season. During her time in Morgantown, Samara made efforts to upgrade the Mountaineers’ schedule to give her players the chance to play more nationally ranked competition and is responsible for bringing in some of the most talented players on the WVU tennis team. “When my husband Brian and I joined Mountaineer Nation in 2010 in the midst of the team’s fall season, we came with lofty expectations of what


Continued from page 10 But with the majority of the starters expected to return for the 2014 season, Mazey isn’t expecting his team to be picked to finish last heading into next year. In fact, much like they did


Continued from page 10 McBroom, catcher Max Nogay and pitcher Ryan Tezak are members of the New England Collegiate Baseball League. The NECBL showcases top amateur talent in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont. McBroom is a member of the Laconia Muskrats. Laconia has been a summer home to Mountaineers be-

the WVU tennis program could be in the future,” Samara said. “Today, we are seeing those hopes and dreams realized as players such as Hailey Barrett, Ikttesh Chahal, Vivian Tsui and Irinka Toidze are achieving at a level higher than anyone has during any point in program history (and) defeating top-25 opponents, competing against the nation’s top teams and excelling in the classroom.” Musgrave, Carley to return to WVU After being selected in this year’s Major League Baseball draft, West Virginia starting pitchers Harrison Musgrave and Sean Carley both said on Twitter that they would be returning shortly after the draft. Musgrave was named the Big 12 Conference’s Pitcher of the Year and was an ABCA/Rawlings allEast region first team selection following his redshirt sophomore season. The left-handed pitcher from Bridgeport, W.Va., had a 9-1 record with a 2.17 earned run average before being drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies. Carley didn’t pitch in 2013 after being forced to sit out a year after trans-

ferring from Air Force, but was still drafted by the San Diego Padres. In his final season at Air Force, Carley earned second team all-Mountain West Conference honors and threw three complete games. The two starting pitchers are expected to anchor the Mountaineer rotation in 2014. “They both need to stay healthy and stay sharp and be good, but if all goes as planned, I really like that 1-2 combination of pitchers as much as anyone’s in the league,” said WVU head coach Randy Mazey. “Obviously, February is a long way away, but it’s nice to sit back and think that we’ll have those two guys back to anchor our rotation on the weekends next year.” WVU baseball players excelling in summer leagues In the offseason, many members of the West Virginia baseball team are currently out of town participating in summer baseball leagues. Sophomore outfielder Bobby Boyd is currently playing in the prestigious Cape Cod League for the Bourn Braves. Boyd is hitting .231 in his first four

games. Justin Fox, who started games sporadically as a sophomore at second base, is one of the hottest hitters in the Florida Collegiate Summer League. Fox is hitting .370 with eight runs, five doubles, a home run and seven RBI

in his first eight games of the summer. While starting shortstop Michael Constantini has struggled at the plate, hitting just .120, he has been able to draw five walks and score seven runs with eight stolen bases for the Quakertown Blazers of the At-

lantic Collegiate Baseball League. Other starters – like Ryan McBroom, who was recently drafted by the Kansas City Royals – are expected to begin playing in their leagues soon.

during last season, the team is going to have to learn the mindset that comes with being one of the better teams in the league as opposed to the underdog mentality it has become accustomed to in the past. “We went into this season teaching the guys and preparing them for the ad-

versity and being the underdog. Then in the middle of the season, when we started winning games, we had to flip it and teach them how to handle success,” he said. “When people start to think you’re pretty good, then you have the pressure of knowing that you have to live up to it.”

Although they fell short of their goal to make a trip to the NCAA tournament this season, the Mountaineers were encouraged by the progress made in Mazey’s first year. They won their final game of the season, in walk-off fashion, against a nationally ranked Oklahoma State

team – something their first-year head coach said is definitely something they can use to build on in the months leading up to the 2014 season. “We actually got to win our last game and have everyone celebrate with a big dog pile on the field, and that’s something that

doesn’t usually happen unless you win the national championship,” Mazey said. “But it gave us that feeling that we want to come in and pick up right where we left off when next season starts. We’re in a good situation.”

fore, most recently with former infielder John Polonius in 2012. McBroom was drafted in the 36th round of the MLB First-Year Player Draft by the Kansas City Royals earlier this month. He’ll have until July 15 to decide on WVU or a chance at a professional career. Much like McBroom, pitcher Sean Carley, a 34th round selection by the San Diego Padres will weigh his options on returning to school. He’s doing that out in Anchorage, Ala., for the Anchorage Glacier Pilots in

the Alaska Baseball League. Outfielder Jacob Rice joins Carley on the team after leading WVU in hitting this season with a .333 batting average. WVU’s hottest summer league hitter is Justin Fox. The infielder is hitting .370 with a home run and eight runs batted in for the Leesburg Lighting of the Florida Collegiate Summer League. Other summer league players include Michael Constantini (Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League), Ray Guerrini (Valley Baseball

League), Taylor Munden (Texas Collegiate League), Billy Sager (Valley Baseball League), Alex Stephens (Florida Collegiate Summer League), Michael Teagle (Karl Young College Baseball League) and Shaun Wood (Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League). Summer leagues are a great opportunity for college players to play and experience different parts of the country. Playing far from campus can be an advantage for many players; attracting the attention of

new scouts and coaches can be very valuable for a professional career. Another big advantage of playing in a summer league is getting used to swinging a wooden bat. Most summer leagues use wooden bats rather than the customary collegiate aluminum bats. Many amateur scouts and college coaches insist the transition from one bat to another can be daunting yet rewarding for players. Five Mountaineers were selected in this year’s draft.

That number could presumably increase for next year’s draft with the talent Randy Mazey will bring back for his second season in Morgantown. Summer leagues usually play between 50-60 games and run from June to August. West Virginia players from near and far will bring their summer experiences back with them to school, which should only bolster an already up-and-coming program.

The West Virginia baseball team finished third in the Big 12 Conference in Randy Mazey’s first season as the Mountaineers’ head coach.

sports editor

It had been quite some time since Randy Mazey had to take on the challenges of being a college baseball head coach. After taking East Carolina to the NCAA tournament in each of his three years at the helm, Mazey resigned following being suspended by the school after the 2005 season. The seven years after that were spent as an assistant at TCU before finally getting another chance to run a program at WVU.

“(As a head coach), you feel like you’re more responsible for the kids and the future of the assistants,” Mazey said. “If the program isn’t successful, then that falls on you, and you let down a lot of people. “That’s a big responsibility that you’re strapped with as a head coach, whereas as an assistant coach you don’t have to shoulder that burden as much.” When Mazey was introduced as the Mountaineers’ 19th head baseball coach last June, he made it clear his goal was to turn the WVU baseball program – which had fin-

ished in the top half of the Big East Conference standings just three times in the last 10 years – into one that could be consistently competitive in the Big 12 Conference. And, in a season in which the Mountaineers were unanimously chosen to finish last in the league, WVU began to take steps in the right direction in Mazey’s first season. West Virginia exceeded expectations, finishing 33-26 and winning 13 conference games en route to a third-place finish and coming up one game short of a place in the championship game in the Big 12

Summer leagues beneficial for WVU

tournament. “I don’t think there’s any doubt at all that (being picked to finish last) had a lot to do with how well we did,” Mazey said. “Any time that all of your peers tell you you’re going to be the worst or finish last at something, you’re going to want to try to go out and prove them wrong. “Every time they played a conference game, our guys took the field with that in mind and knowing that the other team out there thought they weren’t as good as them.”

Much like the thousands of West Virginia University students that have fled Morgantown for summer vacation, several members of the Mountaineer baseball team have been shipped out all the across the country by head coach Randy Mazey to play the game they love. These members of the WVU baseball team can be spotted from coast to coast, in Alaska all the way to New Hampshire. A total of 15 players from the 2013 team are participating in a summer league with other players from colleges across the country. Perhaps the most well-known college summer league is the Cape Cod Baseball League. The league, played in Massachusetts, has helped more than 200 promising prospects make it to the Major Leagues over the years. Rising junior Bobby Boyd is in Bourn, Mass., this summer participating in the famed league. Boyd had a stellar sophomore season for the Mountaineers, hitting .314 in 54 starts. He’s played in four games so far this summer for the Bourn Braves, hitting .231. Junior John Means, a lefthanded pitcher for WVU, is also in the Cape Cod League for the Falmouth Commodores but has yet to enter a game. Outside the CCBL, a number of summer leagues are hosting collegiate players this summer. First baseman Ryan
