Morgantown prepares for voteby-mail system By Devon Unger Staff Writer

A pilot vote-by-mail program for the city of Morgantown will debut this spring for elections. The system will take the place of traditional polls, but voters will use ballots similar to absentee ballots and drop them in their respective wards throughout the city. Citizens will receive their ballots at home from April 8 to April 12. They have 18 days to mail it back. Election day is April 26. City Council member Ron Bane expressed some concerns over potential problems with the vote-by-mail program. Bane said he is worried it will be difficult to determine the validity of ballots, and there is a possibility that ballots may be delivered to individuals not meant to receive them. Jake Glance, a spokesperson for the West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office, said the system for verifying the identity of a voter casting the ballot is no different than what is used in polling stations. He said in both cases poll

workers take a signature check it against a signature on the individual’s voter registration card. Glance said any voter casting the ballot for another individual is committing voter fraud. “Vote-by-mail is similar to absentee voting. You get the ballot, you vote, you put it in an envelope, then you put that envelope in another envelope, and then you have to sign across the seal,” Glance said. Bane said he was also concerned about possible changes in a person’s signature over time and what will be done with ballots mailed improperly, such as in the wrong envelope. “When we’re investigating and looking at signatures, there are people out there who may have signed their voter registration card 30 years ago, and now they may be on medication or something, and they don’t sign the same way,” Bane said. Glance said if a person is concerned he or she signature may be different than what is on record he or she

SGA approves, debates proposed expenditure election reform by Charles Young correspondent

Members of the Board of Governors for the West Virginia University Student Government Association approved two proposed amendments to the election code. A total of five amendments were considered, four written by SGA Vice President Ron Cheng and one written by Gov. Josh Snyder. “I think it was a small step in the right direction,” said SGA President Chris Lewallen. The first approved amendment stated party campaigns as a whole are responsible for paying campaign violation fines. The formal codes stated individuals were responsible for paying their own fines. The amendment passed by two votes. The second amendment also passed, which gave SGA parties the right to display its campaign T-shirts. This includes establishments serving alcohol, some-

thing that was previously prohibited. One of the failed amendments read that the SGA attorney general and the elections chair had the right to be subpoenaed for all campaign fiance records and employ “speakerphone taps.” SGA defines speakerphone taps as the right to observe conversations via speakerphone with any subpoenaed individual to gain any relevant information relating to the campaign. Gov. Jason Bailey said the amendment was a “nasty” addition to the Patriot Act. The amendment was voted down 10 to three. The governors also choose to unanimously vote down another amendment dealing with the use of coupons during the campaign season. The final amendment considered, which was submitted by Snyder, called for the repeal of expenditure limits during SGA campaigns. “This eliminates the need

ery student at WVU who wants to has an equal opportunity to run,” Callaghan said. If Bailey and Callaghan win the election in April, they will both begin their second year in SGA positions. Bailey said he doesn’t believe their lack of SGA experience would hurt them in the election. “I think what I’ve learned from President Chris Lewallen and Vice President Ron Cheng over this past year has made up for any experience I could have gotten in three,” he said. Since taking office, Cal-

laghan said she has worked to strengthen student involvement in SGA through Student Connections and the internship program. Bailey said he has worked to reform the SGA grant process and created an organization to join all WVU student organizations. During his announcement, Bailey addressed rumors of himself running on a ticket with Daniel Brummage, SGA chief of staff. He also said Callaghan had planned to run with Gov. Rashad Bates.

He said the four of them agreed to form one ticket with Bailey and Callaghan in the top positions to decrease the need for SGA members to choose sides. “The dilemma for ourselves is that those currently involved in SGA would have to choose a side to support,” Bailey said. “As rumors of potential candidates emerged, it would have been detrimental to SGA’s mission of reform.” Vice president Ron Cheng said he was proud of Brummage and Bates for stepping

down to allow Bailey and Callaghan to run. “I’ve never seen that happen where two tickets join together for the better of the student body,” Cheng said. “I have to applaud the humility of Bates and Brummage for doing what’s best for the students.” The decision was the best for the students, and Bates said he plans to run for reelection on the BOG. He said he would like a position on Bailey and Callaghan’s ticket.

WELL WVU hosts flu shot clinic with leftover vaccines from Fall by lydia nuzum correspondent

West Virginia University’s WELL WVU held a flu shot clinic Wednesday, Nov. 19 at the Student Rec Center. The clinic was open to students, faculty and staff with a valid WVU ID. Patricia Anderson, a nurse at Student Health, said the flu shot clinics have medical, nursing, and pharmacy students volunteering their time to perform inoculations. Anderson said while most flu shot clinics through the University occur in the fall, leftover vaccinations prompted WELL WVU to hold another clinic to give students the opportunity to receive a shot at a discounted price of $5. “The shot covers H1N1 as

well as common seasonal flu strains,” Anderson said. “While it is still possible for a student who has received the vaccine to contract the flu, the vaccination protects roughly against 75 to 80 percent of the common seasonal strains.” Anderson said it takes about two weeks for protection to develop after the shot, and protection lasts about a year. She also said while flu season normally starts at the beginning of fall, instances of influenza are more prevalent in the winter months. Jamie Maloney, a first year medical graduate student, who administered flu shots, said she highly recommends vaccination to students in order to protect their health.

BOG continues to tour colleges, meet with faculty BY JESSICA LEPPAR STAFF WRITER

The Board of Governors at West Virginia University has been making visits to the different colleges at WVU in an attempt to learn more about them. The BOG is interested in the variety of the faculty research, the professor’s teaching methods and the overall insight into the institutions, said Nigel Clark, BOG member. For their next meeting, the BOG will visit the College of

Business & Economics on Feb. 3, said Carolyn Long, chairwoman of the BOG. “We thought we would start out by visiting the institutions where our appointees from the college are,” Long said. The BOG already visited the School of Pharmacy and the College of Engineering and Mineral Resources at the end of December, she said.

Morgantown Martial Arts is a new mixed martial arts facility located downtown.

New martial arts gym opens on Chestnut Street BY NICK ASHLEY STAFF WRITER

Two area martial arts gym owners recently joined together to open a new facility on Chestnut Street in hopes of attracting new customers. Owner of the former 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu, Neale Hoerle, and owner of former Morgantown Maritial Arts, Wilton Bunn, opened the new Morgantown Martial Arts in December to West Virginia University students and the public. “The gym was previously located a mile outside of town. The new location was needed because business was expanding,” Hoerle said. The gym features four primary trainers who teach classes in Muay Thai, 10th Planet Jui-Jitsu, Brazilian JiuJitsu, submission wrestling, mixed martial arts, boxing and kickboxing for women. “We offer different workout alternatives for students such as self-defense classes and other martial arts skills to learn new styles and techniques,” Bunn said. To use the gym, there is a three-month participation requirement at $150 per term.

Morgantown Martial Arts, a new fighting facility, is located on Chestnut Street downtown. The gym provides a week of free training for new customers to figure out which style of fighting to commit to, Bunn said. “There are other monthly plans that we offer at the gym. People can even try our year program, which allows them to pay monthly for their training,” he said. The gym features more than 2,000 square feet of space with separate rooms for lifting and a MMA fighting cage. “I went to the website to see what different classes were offered at the gym,” said Anna Burdette, who is taking wom-

en’s kickboxing and Muay Thai at the gym. “I feel empowered by taking these classes ... I gained a lot of confidence knowing that I can properly defend myself now.” Bunn said he wanted to give students an opportunity to exercise other than typical gyms. “Morgantown is a heavily populated college city. The new facility offers so many classes that fit the needs of everyone in the community,” he said. Morgantown Martial Arts is located at 277 Chestnut St. nicholas.ashley@mail.wvu.edu

Vote-by-mail is expected to increase voter participation and decrease election costs. Morgantown was selected for the pilot program in the state because the city originally approached the Secretary of State’s office with the idea. Glance said Oregon has already implemented vote-bymail statewide. “About two or three years ago, we started talking about legislatively addressing this , and the Secretary of State’s office thought it was a good idea to try this. So then they came up with a law to implement the vote-by-mail,” said Linda Little, Morgantown City Clerk. The new system will not use any polling places. Instead, ballot dropboxes for those who do not wish to mail their ballot will be located throughout town. “In the past, I would have to call poll workers, and get

them ready and train them to work at the polls. I had 18 polling places that I would have to contact them and make sure all the polling places were ready. So we don’t have any polling places this time,” Little said. Linda said she worked with City Manager Terrence Moore to generate anticipated costs for the vote-by-mail election. According to the report, the elections are expected to cost $14,857. However, Little said because the program is just a pilot, unexpected expenses may come up. “I’m currently working with printing companies to see how much ballots will cost, and I’ll be meeting with poll workers tomorrow, so we can sit down and look at the plan and how everything is going to lay out,” Little said.

Governor election ruling ripples through West Virginia Legislature

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A day after the state Supreme Court required an election for governor this year, lawmakers appeared divided Wednesday over whether candidates should be nominated by party conventions or a special primary. Tuesday’s decision mandating a 2011 vote cited a state law that calls for nominating conventions. But the opinion also noted that the Legislature could change that as long as a general election winner can take office by Nov. 15. The deadline is set one year after Senate President Earl Ray Tomblin began serving as acting governor when fellow Democrat Joe Manchin resigned to join the U.S. Senate. Although the state constitution provides for that succession route, the unanimous ruling concluded that it also requires an “elected successor within one year of the date when the vacancy occurred.” That and other legal findings in the opinion have revived questions over Tomblin’s decision to focus on the role of chief

executive while setting aside his legislative duties. The agenda Tomblin hopes to pursue during the 60-day session could suffer as a result, some key lawmakers said. While expressing support for Tomblin, Senate Judiciary Chairman Corey Palumbo said, “He knows that he’s only guaranteed one session, where previously he thought he might be (acting as governor) for two sessions. He’s automatically a lame duck, so to speak, so I think it may give him a little bit less juice.” The ruling has also stoked the debate over the new Senate office of acting president – created for when the actual president is acting as governor – and the election of Marshall County Democrat Jeff Kessler to that post. Tomblin had concluded that state law did not permit the next election for governor until 2012, when the office is already on the ballot for a full four-year term. Having won a special election for U.S. Senate, Manchin

stepped down as governor less that halfway through his second term. Vowing to proclaim a special election as mandated by the ruling, Tomblin said Tuesday that he would also propose legislation replacing conventions with a primary election. “It would be unfortunate to conduct a new election without allowing the people to nominate their candidates,” Tomblin said. Palumbo welcomed the concept. “I feel very strongly that we should change it to a primary,” said Palumbo, D-Kanawha. “I think most of my colleagues agree with that.” Republican lawmakers also want a primary, said House Minority Leader Tim Armstead. A bill sponsored by GOP delegates, introduced Wednesday but drafted before the ruling, would set a May 14 primary and an Aug. 6 general election. “The caucus has been very outspoken that there should not be a convention,” the Kanawha County Republican said.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Mountaintop removal mining activists said Wednesday that acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is behaving like a lobbyist for organizing a rally in which he and other politicians plan to criticize the federal Environmental Protection Agency. Tomblin has invited the public to join him, other politicians and industry officials for a rally that he said is designed to show the agency how coal is ben-

eficial to the lives of West Virginians and others across the country. It’s set for 2 p.m. Thursday at the state Capitol in Charleston. The rally is in response to the EPA’s veto last week of a crucial permit for Arch Coal Inc.’s planned Spruce No. 1 mine in Logan County. The agency said the permit would cause irreparable environmental damage and threaten the health of nearby communities.

The 2,300-acre mine would have been the state’s largest mountaintop removal operation. Environmental groups have fought for years to stop it. Several longtime activists accused Tomblin during a Wednesday conference call on the ruling of shilling for the industry and ignoring the concerns of communities near the large strip mines. “What acting Governor Tomblin is doing Thursday is not in keeping with the needs of the people of West Virginia,” said Vernon Haltom of Coal River Mountain Watch. “He is acting as a coal lobbyist and not as a governor should.” Tomblin’s spokeswoman, Jacqueline Proctor, defended the event. “The core of what the governor is trying to express is the fact that the EPA revoked a permit that had been issued several years ago – and we take umbrage with that,” she said.

TUCSON TRAGEDY Official: Video shows U.S. Chief: Federal Rep. Giffords shot in face Judge helped TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Surveillance video from an Arizona grocery store shows moments of mayhem and a judge’s heroism as a gunman shoots Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the face, then turns the gun on a crowd of people waiting to meet the congresswoman, an Arizona sheriff’s official said Wednesday. Pima County Sheriff’s Chief Rick Kastigar said he watched the first part of the surveillance video, which shows 22-year-old Jared Loughner shooting Giffords in the forehead from about 2 feet away. It also shows U.S. District Judge John Roll trying to shield Giffords aide Ron Barber from gunfire. “I believe the judge is a hero,” Kastigar said. “I think Judge Roll is responsible for directing Mr. Barber out of the line of fire and helped save his life.” Roll was shot in the back; he and five others died from their injuries. Barber was among 13 people shot and wounded. The 22-year-old gunman had been bent on targeting Giffords since meeting her at a similar event in 2007, authorities said. She is in serious condition after the bullet traveled the length of her brain. The video shows Loughner turning toward a group of people sitting in chairs, then stepping out of view. Kastigar said that’s when Loughner indiscriminately fired at the seated group and turned toward Roll and Barber. Kastigar said Loughner shot Barber, and almost simultaneously Roll moved Barber toward the ground and both crawled beneath the table, with Roll getting on top of Barber. The sheriff’s office turned the video over to the FBI, which has declined to release it. “You know, I’ve been a cop for three decades and I’ve seen some pretty traumatic and disturbing things, and this was very, very upsetting to watch

this,” Kastigar said of the video. The Jan. 8 shooting rocked Tucson and the nation, resulting in an outpouring of support for Giffords and the other victims, including thousands of candles, cards, balloons and bouquets across the southern Arizona desert city. Bicycle riders gathered Tuesday evening for a 2-mile vigil ride from the hospital to honor Giffords, an avid cyclist. “This gives us an opportunity to share and do something positive. What happened was awful,” organizer Damion Alexander said. “It’s so sad. And whenever something bad happens, you have an opportunity to be brought down by it or to look at how you can lift up the spirits and make it a better place to live.” Inside the hospital, Giffords’ husband, Mark Kelly, has been keeping his own vigil. He told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an interview that aired Tuesday night that he believed for about 20 minutes that his wife was dead after seeing a mistaken television news report. Kelly, an astronaut, said he had rushed aboard a friend’s plane to fly to Arizona after hearing of the shooting. “I just, you know, walked into the bathroom, and you know, broke down,” he said. “To hear that she died is just, it’s devastating for me.” Kelly said he later learned that she was alive when he called Giffords’ mother, who was outside the operating room. Giffords isn’t aware that six people died in the shooting, including Gabe Zimmerman, one of her staff members, Kelly said. Kelly told Sawyer that he was sure Giffords recognizes him at her hospital bed, since she has continued with a habit of playing with his wedding ring – moving it up and down his finger and sometimes putting it on her thumb. “She’s done that before,” he said. “She’ll do that if we’re sitting in a restaurant.

save man’s life

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — John Roll was called a fair federal judge and a loving family man at his funeral. Now, some are also calling him a hero. Surveillance footage of the Jan. 8 shooting rampage in Tucson showed that he used his body as a shield to cover an injured man. Roll then took a bullet to the back, and lost his life in the process. “The judge is a hero,” Pima County sheriff’s Chief Rick Kastigar said. Acts of heroism – the intern running toward a gravely wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords or the bystanders tackling the gunman – helped lift the spirits of a shocked nation soon after the shooting. The ensuing days focused on Giffords’ condition and the death of a 9-year-old girl born on Sept. 11, 2001. The new details from the surveillance video showed the full extent of Roll’s visit to the supermarket where Giffords was holding a meet-and-greet event with constituents. Kastigar said he watched the first part of the surveillance video, which has been turned over to the FBI. The agency has declined to release it. Kastigar described the video’s contents. “You know, I’ve been a cop for three decades and I’ve seen some pretty traumatic and disturbing things, and this was very, very upsetting to watch this,” Kastigar said. The video showed Jared Loughner, 22, shooting the Democratic lawmaker in the forehead from several feet away, Kastigar said. The video shows Loughner turning toward a group of people sitting in chairs, then stepping out of view. Kastigar said that’s when Loughner indiscriminately fired at the seated group. Loughner then shot Giffords aide, Ron Barber. Almost simultaneously, Roll moved Barber toward the ground and both crawled beneath a table, Kastigar said. Roll then got on top of Barber. “Judge Roll is responsible for directing Mr. Barber out of the line of fire and helped save his life,” Kastigar said.

One year after airlift to Pa. following earthquake, Haitian children thrive (AP) — Dania Brock is no longer afraid to go to the bathroom at night. The rats that haunted the outhouse in Haiti can’t get her in Georgia. Ketia Brenner is learning three languages – English, Spanish and Hebrew – and spends Friday nights eating popcorn and drinking root beer by the fireplace in Seattle. And Jimmy Lepp, once the unofficial “mayor” of his Portau-Prince orphanage, is saving money for a dirt bike and learning to play the drums in Colville, Wash. One year after crossing over a body-filled Haitian ravine and singing hymns to stay calm on their flight to Pittsburgh, they and 51 other children rescued a week after the historic Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake are, for the most part, thriving. And they’re learning to be part of something they haven’t had in years, if ever – a family. “They have done better than I would have ever dared to dream,” says Diana Boni, the adoption coordinator with Owensboro, Ky. based All Blessings International who worked with the 54 children and the Pittsburgh siblings who had helped run their orphanage as volunteers. The Pennsylvania airlift was the first of many that would, over four months, bring some 1,100 Haitian children to waiting U.S. families. Ranging from 11 months to 16 years old, most whisked away in the hastily arranged Pittsburgh flight knew their adoptive families before the quake. The parents had spent months or years taking classes, reading books and visiting Haiti to prepare. Yet for the children, there was still a sense of loss: They’d been happy and adored at the orphanage. They’d lived with dozens of playmates. Some, born into poverty and given up by their birth families out

But after the magnitude 7.0 earthquake flattened countless buildings and killed an estimated 316,000 people, Port-au-Prince sank into desperation and violence. Food and water were scarce. Shots rang out beyond the orphanage walls, forcing frightened children to lie still on the floor. The orphanage staff worked with people back home, including Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, to arrange the daring rescue mission that involved the White House, the State Department, and the Department of Homeland Security. And in just a week, they made that bus ride over the ravine. “They saw that,” says Boni, “and the older they were, the more traumatized they were by that.” But they knew where they were going and who would take them in. They trusted in what they’d been told. “They were ready to believe,” Boni says, “that in the United States, we don’t run out of water.” Critics, however, screamed

that proper procedures were circumvented and some children were taken without their birth families’ permission. The U.S. government says it facilitated only cases it could confirm had been approved by the Haitian government, offering children “humanitarian parole” to protect the integrity of nearly 1,000 legitimate adoptions.

Sargent Shriver looks out of a car window as he arrives at a wake for his wife Eunice Kennedy Shriver at Our Lady of Victory Roman Catholic Church, in the Centerville section of Barnstable, Mass. Shriver, the exuberant public servant and Kennedy in-law whose singular career included directing the Peace Corps, fighting the “War on Poverty” and, less successfully, running for office, died Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2011. He was 95.

Last link to 1961-1963 JFK White House: Sargent Shriver dies BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — For all his accomplishments – Peace Corps director, ambassador, leader of the war on poverty – R. Sargent Shriver ultimately became known first as an in-law. The brother-in-law of President John F. Kennedy and Sen. Edward Kennedy, and, late in life, father-in-law of actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, died Tuesday, after being hospitalized for several days in his native Maryland. He was 95 and had suffered from Alzheimer’s disease since at least 2003. One of the last links to President Kennedy’s “Camelot,” Shriver, a businessman and lawyer, helped his late wife and Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver – a sister of JFK and Edward Kennedy – run the organization that allows disabled people to participate in sports. President Barack Obama called Shriver, “one of the brightest lights of the greatest generation.” “Over the course of his long and distinguished career, Sarge came to embody the idea of public service,” Obama said in a statement. Born in 1915 to a prominent

old Maryland family, Shriver was the son of a stockbroker who would lose most of his money in the crash of 1929. Shriver went on a scholarship to Yale, then went on to Yale Law School. After serving in the Navy in the Pacific during World War II, he returned home and became an assistant editor at Newsweek magazine. About this time, he met Eunice Kennedy and was immediately taken with her. They married in 1953 in New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Speaking outside Suburban Hospital in Maryland where his father died, Anthony Kennedy Shriver said his father was “with my mom now,” and called his parents’ marriage a great love story. Eunice died on Aug. 11, 2009, at age 88. The Kennedy family suffered a second blow that same month when Sen. Edward Kennedy died after a long battle with brain cancer. At her mother’s memorial service, the Shrivers’ daughter and former California first lady Maria Shriver said her father let her mother “rip and he let her roar, and he loved everything about her.” The whitehaired Shriver attended in a

wheelchair. Family patriarch, the powerful Joseph P. Kennedy, hired his son-in-law to manage his Merchandise Mart in Chicago. He was a big success on the job and in Chicago in general – and even was elected head of the school board in 1955. Though the Kennedys granted Shriver power, they also withheld it. As he would throughout his life, he sought higher office and considered running for Illinois governor in 1960, only to be told the family needed his help for John Kennedy’s presidential campaign. During the campaign, Shriver, who had fought for integration in Chicago, helped persuade JFK to make a crucial decision despite other staffers’ fears of a white backlash. When the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was jailed in Georgia that fall, Kennedy, urged by Shriver and fellow aide Harris Wofford, phoned King’s wife and offered support. His gesture was deeply appreciated by King’s family and brought the candidate crucial support. Soon after taking office, President Kennedy named Shriver to fulfill a campaign promise to start the Peace Corps.

Voters must be informed of new system This year, Morgantown will be the first city in the state to conduct a vote-by-mail election. It is an experimental program, and with that, there is room for errors. The program was brought to the city to increase voter turnout and to reduce costs, such as costs and education. Costs for the new system will be around $15,000, but since it is new, additional costs may come into effect. The city should bring forward new ideas for a more efficient program, but they should be careful about mov-

ing too quickly and potentially not informing the public on how to cast the ballot correctly. Measures will be taken to protect against voter fraud. Voters will have to place their ballot in an envelope, put that envelope inside another envelope, and then voters must sign the seal on the outer envelope. Their signatures will be examined and compared to the one found on their voter’s registration card. If there is a problem with the signature, the voter will be

notified and further decisions will be made. City officials claim the new system will be easy and more efficient. But Florida claimed its ballot was easy, as well, during the 2000 presidential election, when voters were confused about the new electronic system and made mistakes on the ballots. Thousands of votes were disqualified and thus created conflict among the candidates. Debates over the outcome of the 2000 election continue today. While this may not be a

presidential election, local government is an important part of our democratic society. Oregon has already issued the vote-by-mail statewide and has done so since 1998 with success. On the Oregon Secretary of State’s website, the list of reasons to vote-by-mail include: It saves the taxpayers money, removes barriers that can keep people from getting to the polls, allows more time for people to study issues and candidates before marking the ballot, has built-in safeguards that increase the integrity of

the elections process and increases voter participation. Oregon exemplifies the system working well, but the city of Morgantown needs to assure the voters are well aware of the proper procedures. In a democratic society, all voters must have an equal opportunity to cast their ballots and have a voice. Let’s hope Morgantown takes the necessary steps to implement this experimental program so this election is fair and runs smoothly.

Palin didn’t incite Tucson rampage, but her ethics questionable omar ghabra columnist

On Jan. 8th, newly re-elected Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was scheduled to hold her first “Congress on Your Corner” outreach event. The event was to be held in a local grocery store parking lot and was intended to be the first of many opportunities citizens in Giffords’ district would have to meet the congresswoman. At 8:58 a.m., Giffords posted a message on her Twitter account urging her constituents to “please stop by” the event and let her know what was on their minds. Approximately one hour later, a deranged young man named Jared Loughner opened fire on the gathering, shooting 20 people, including the congresswoman, a federal judge and a nine year-old girl. While Giffords miraculously survived a bullet to the head, six people were killed. While it is unknown of the extent of her longterm struggles with her injuries, Giffords is expected to have a normal life after her recovery. It was immediately clear the killer is very troubled and does not espouse mainstream political views. Based on the accounts of people who know him, and his own postings online, Loughner seemed to believe in a number of farfetched conspiracy theories. His shooting rampage and attempted assassination of Gifap fords appears to be an isolated Sarah Palin signs copies of her new book, ‘America By Heart’, in Little Rock, Ark. Palin has posted a nearly eight-minute video on her Face- act of lunacy by someone who is book page condemning those who blame political rhetoric for the Arizona shooting that gravely wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. undeniably a lunatic.

This did not stop many on the left in the media and the blogosphere from jumping to the conclusion that the Arizona tragedy was incited by the heated political rhetoric used by many conservatives. Specifically, they singled out Sarah Palin. In the run up to the 2010 midterms, a graphic was posted on her website picturing a map of the United States with crosshairs on a number of democratic congressional districts Palin wanted Republicans to target, along with a list of the names of the representatives from each district. This list included West Virginia’s very own Mollohan and Nick Rahall, as well as Giffords. To Palin’s critics, this, along with her “Don’t retreat, reload” tweet, were all the evidence they needed to show this man was inspired by Palin or she in some way contributed to his decision to try to kill Giffords. To say this is a stretch would be an understatement. All the evidence suggests Loughner is a disturbed young man and his motivations were apolitical. Those close to him said he did not follow current events, and none of his online postings suggest he was in any way interested in contemporary political discourse. In fact, it seems as though his desire to kill the congresswoman was born after she failed to adequately respond to a nonsensical question he asked her at a town hall meeting in 2007. Despite this, according to a CNN poll, 35 percent of Americans believe Sarah Palin is at least partially to blame. Palin responded to this criticism with a statement published on her Facebook page in which

she blasted her critics. She asserted in her rebuttal that “acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own” and “they begin and end with the criminals who commit them”. She’s absolutely right. As President Obama stated at the memorial service in Tucson, political rhetoric is not to blame for this tragedy; the killer is. The tragedy at Tucson wasn’t the result of a graphic released by the Palin camp. Loughner didn’t see an image of crosshairs on a map and suddenly decide he was going to assassinate the congresswoman in a shooting rampage. His actions are his own. Palin is right; in America we don’t assign collective blame when only individuals are guilty of committing the crimes. But if she truly believes this, an interesting question is raised. Why does she not apply this same standard to Muslims? Last summer, the former governor had no problem collectively blaming Muslims for the actions of individual criminals when she was one of the loudest opponents of the proposed Park51 Islamic community center in lower Manhattan. Why did Palin find it acceptable to treat a group of people, estimated to be as large as 7 million strong in the United States, with suspicion based on the actions of a handful of extremists, yet when others did the same to her she called it “reprehensible”? Either Sarah Palin has had an enlightening change of heart since the debate over Park51 last summer or she’s a shameless hypocrite. She’s given no indication the former is true, so one can only assume the latter.

The dos and don’ts of social media networking: A guide for on and off the job margaret pack Mustang Daily Uwire

When applying for jobs, chances are most employers will search for you via the Internet. Here are some tips to help ensure that what they find is positive and perhaps give you an opportunity to market yourself in ways that a resume can’t. Keep an eye on Facebook photos you post, and what you’re tagged in. Even if you’re eager to show off how many shots you were able to keep down last weekend, future employers are more interested in some of your other accomplishments. Photos with excessive

amounts of alcohol might present you in a less than professional light to employers. Even if you’re 21, try to keep it classy when posting pictures online. Employers are not only concerned with legal issues, but more importantly, how you may one day represent their company. This goes for posts too – because of the ability to be anonymous on the Internet, you never know who’s read that you were “a complete s--- show last night.” Be familiar with privacy settings. When you first open a Facebook or Twitter account, the automatic privacy settings may not give as much online privacy as you’d like. To change the settings on Facebook, choose the “Account” tab and click on “Privacy Set-

tings.” You can customize to the extent that certain friends can only see specific things on your page (a great option for when you find yourself friends with Mom or a professor). Also, by choosing to “Customize settings” and “Preview My Profile,” you can see how each specific friend, and others on Facebook, view your profile. By going to “Connecting on Facebook,” you can also control who can search for you. To privatize Twitter, click on your username, then click on “Settings.” Scroll down to “Protect my tweets” to manually approve followers to your tweets. LinkedIn profiles can stay more public if you prefer, especially because the information available on this site should highlight your professional life. Never underestimate the

power of the Internet. Even though you’ve set maximum privacy settings, remember the never-ending capabilities of the Internet. Some larger companies may have the capability to get past your privacy settings without your approval. Even if you think you’re immune, remember that your posts and pictures are still going to be on the Internet, which never guarantees absolute privacy. Have an online presence. Besides your Facebook, and maybe Twitter, there are other ways to make yourself available online. LinkedIn, a networking site that can be used “to exchange information, ideas and opportunities,” (according to its website) allows you to post im-

portant items such as your resume and other career-related information. An increasing number of professionals use LinkedIn, and this is a great way to network for possible job opportunities. Another way to strengthen your online presence is to create a personal website or blog. A personal website allows you to publish information that can’t be explained in detail on a resume. This is a smart option especially if you’d like to showcase work such as writing samples or graphic design projects. Online programs such as WordPress or Tumblr are relatively easy to use, free, and you can learn the basics of Web design while you’re at it. It’s also relatively inexpensive to purchase your own domain

name to make the website appear more professional. Remember to link the website to your resume! The name you prefer should be consistent. Especially if you go by a name other than your legal name, it’s crucial to use the same name in all circumstances. By doing so, you can ensure employers can identify you and verify information. Try to network with professionals in the field. This is what you’ve created your LinkedIn page for, right? Whenever you meet professionals in a field you’re interested in, always think about future opportunities and keep their contact information in mind. Unless your job requires working directly with social media, save Facebook time for later.

The Demon Beat unveils new album by mackenzie mays associate a&e editor

Local soul-infused rock band The Demon Beat has released its latest album, “1956.” The new CD works as a whole new take on the Sheperdstow n, W.Va.-based band’s sound and symbolizes the group’s “stripped-down” direction as artists, according to bassist Tucker Riggleman. “It’s definitely a whole new animal. This album wasn’t just a collection of songs we’d had around and been playing live. It was something we’ve put a lot of work into. The result is pretty raw and organic,” Riggleman said. The humble construction put into making the album is something that has defined it as a whole and reflects change for the trio, which consists of Riggleman on bass, Jordan Hudkins on drums and vocalist Adam Meisterhans. “I think it’s cool that we did

the whole album in basically two takes. One 22-minute take, and one 16-minute take,” Riggleman said. “Other than one or two guitar overdubs and vocals, everything else you hear is just the three of us in a room playing it straight through.” Mesiterhans said the album is also a representation of how far the members have grown as a cooperative group. “This is the first record where we’ve gone out on a limb and recorded it ourselves. To me, that makes a huge difference in every aspect of the album,” Mesiterhans said. “I’m very proud of every part of it – the performances, the material, the tones. It’s all representative of who we want to be.” “We’ve listened to a lot more styles of music, and I think we’re all just better musicians because of it,” Riggleman added. “More importantly, I think we’ve really learned how to play and write together as a band.”

The band will play 123 Pleasant Street Feb. 12 with PAT PAT and The Christmas Lights and said the opportunity to perform in Morgantown is always one that goes appreciated. “Morgantown has a really great music scene, and 123 is one of the best venues in the country,” Riggleman said. “It’s an awesome home base for some killer bands.” For more information on “1956” visit http://bigbulletrecords.bandcamp.com/ album/1956. The band also plans to release a split cassette in April and another full length album this summer. “This album is way more groove heavy and a bit psychedelic at times,” Riggleman said. “It’s something that should be listened to all the way through. It’s far more cohesive than anything else we’ve ever done.” mackenzie.mays@mail.wvu.edu

Tudor’s Biscuit World to open Websites allow industry outsiders to its doors Tuesday morning develop, produce own fashion items by david ryan A&E editor

Morgantown’s Tudor’s Biscuit World will open its doors Tuesday after a series of delays. The restaurant, located on University Avenue, was originally intended to open over Thanksgiving Break, but building-related issues caused the date to be pushed back further. Several other attempted launch dates later, co-owners Joe and Barbara Horvath are putting the finishing touches on the building ahead of Tuesday’s opening. To celebrate, the restaurant will be offering a free barbecue sandwich and soft drink from 5

p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday. The restaurant will then open with regular hours Tuesday, 5:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. “We’re really excited,” Joe said. “I think people will like it. A lot of people know about it. I know the new customers who entertain it will be good.” The restaurant is a West Virginian favorite, with locations all across the state. Joe has said the inspiration to bring Tudor’s to Morgantown stemmed from his sons – both West Virginia University graduates – discussing the need for a location where they studied. The restaurant offers a “heavy breakfast-oriented

menu,” Joe said, featuring biscuits, pancakes and omelets. The restaurant is also offers burgers, sandwiches and other menu items. Those who are curious about the restaurant but are unsure of how busy it will be need not worry about missing out. “If there’s a line, we’ll make sure they get something,” Joe said. “We’ve still got a lot of cleanup work to do, but it’s going to be a relief,” he said. The opening will close almost two years of discussions and preparation of bringing the chain to the area, Joe said. david.ryan@mail.wvu.edu

Sagittarius? But I’m a Capricorn DAVID RYAN A&E EDITOR

The planets cannot be trusted. A few years ago, after going to bed a contented young lad, I woke to discover Pluto had been stripped of its planetary status. Everything I ever knew was wrong. No longer would the mnemonic “My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas” mean anything. Now years later, as I start to get back into my groove, I learn I am no longer a Capricorn. How could this be? All I’ve ever known was identifying my entire life and basing everything I ever do or want to do around a goat. Why were the universal

forces that surround us making a mockery of me? The message quickly spread around Twitter and Facebook. Friends were posting about being told their star sign had changed. It was pandemonium. Due to an apparent shift in the Earth’s axis, the distances used to measure the planets for the Zodiac calendar were wrong. To compensate, new star sign Ophiuchus was brought into the fold. It didn’t make any sense. Where did this mystery sign come from? Can you just make them up? Turns out it’s a discarded sign from earlier times. Oh, those Zodiacs. While trying to find out more about my newfound Sagitarianism, I stumbled on something that would confirm my suspicions: This new

If you are among the many college students who yearn for a future in the fashion industry but just don’t know how to get the necessary experience, don’t give up just yet. The industry is full of cutthroat competition that will chew you up and spit you out before you’ve had the chance to exhale from the high level of stress. It takes an impressive resume and a beyond unique display of your creative designs to receive even a second glance from the fashion kings and queens. Dave Sloan is CEO of Treehouse Logic, which offers a hosted design tool solution that allows customers and retail manufacturers the chance to work together. Writing on Mashable, Sloan offers three sites that allow the armchair designer a chance to get creative and productive. Garmz.com is an online store that pits designers against each other for the chance to appear in their

collection. Designers can upload their designs to be judged by an online community. The designer who receives the most votes gets to have his or her design produced and placed by garmz. This is a great way for aspiring designers to gain the experience of actually competing with other designers and to get advice from garmz team of helpful professionals. Plus, designers make a profit from the designs that are sold. If you are reading this, thinking that this sounds to good to be true, check out www.garmz.com to see it for yourself. Blank-Label.com is a great design site for men who are crazy about dress shirts. Just when you thought you had every color and pattern imaginable, Blank-Label opened a brand new door to a never before seen collection, designed by you. Men are able to design their own dress shirt by selecting a fabric, style, collar and buttons. In just a few short weeks, your creation will be sewn and shipped conveniently to

your doorstep at a reasonable cost. Fabricly.com is the site to seek if you are interested in not only designing a few items but also launching your very own clothing line. The process simply requires a submission of your design sketches via e-mail, and then the Fabricly team evaluates them and decides which ones are clothing-line worthy. Fabricly provides production, public relations and even shares profits with the designer. During a time when it is difficult for college students to pursue a clothing line due to financial limitations, Fabricly is a great option that decreases stress and financial risk. These three sites will provide a beacon of hope for those aspiring designers who are beginning to lose sight of their dream, or will open a new door of exploration for those who have never thought about designing before. Who knows? Before you know it, you could be the next Alexander McQueen.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT | 7

Portman rings in 2011 with awards, 4 movies, baby LOS ANGELES (AP) — For Natalie Portman, 2011 is already shaping up to be an unforgettable year. The actress is getting big awards buzz for her turn as a ballerina gone mad in “Black Swan.” She already won a Golden Globe, she’s up for a Screen Actors Guild award and she’s sure to hear her name when Oscar nominations are announced next week. Portman also has four other movies slated for release this year – including the first produced by her own company. Oh, and she’s pregnant with her first child and engaged to be married. “I’m very, very excited,” she says during an interview to promote her romantic comedy “No Strings Attached,” which opens Friday. “I feel very, very lucky.” And maybe just a bit overwhelmed. Ever poised in interviews, and always the picture of perfection at events, the Harvard grad and Oscar nominee (for 2004’s “Closer”) says having four movies in the pipeline at the same time she’s starting a family is “a little insane.” Not that she’s letting it get to her – or letting it show, except for maybe the family part. Though she has a spate of scheduled appearances coming up – awards shows, film festivals, premieres – she’s not dashing around town juggling

meetings and fittings. Instead, the star who recently relocated to Los Angeles from her hometown of New York says she’s just relaxing with her mom and enjoying the West Coast weather. “I think because so much is going on, it’s just sort of going over my head,” Portman says, her petite frame folded on a sofa, her hand intuitively resting on her bourgeoning belly. “I don’t know that I’m taking it all in. I’m just like, ‘Oh, the sun is shining. I’m with my mom. I’m with my dog. Life is good.’” Indeed, things are good for the 29-year-old. She’s engaged to Benjamin Millepied, a ballet dancer and choreographer who worked on “Black Swan,” and they are expecting their first child together. He was her date at the Globes, and when she was named best actress in a drama, she thanked him for “helping me to continue this creation of creating more life.” Portman is also giving life to new movies through her production company, handsomecharlie films. The company’s first feature, “Hesher,” in which she stars with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, premiered at Sundance and is set for release this year. Handsomecharlie is also developing “Best Buds,” a road-trip tale of a bride-tobe who staves off a nervous breakdown by hanging with her friends and smoking marijuana. Portman is set to star. “We like all sorts of movies:

drama, thriller, sci-fi, comedy,” she says of herself and producing partner Annette Savitch. “But I think something that definitely appeals to us, just because of the lack of it, is strong female comedies, and also female friendship movies – unlike ‘Black Swan’ where they’re ripping each other’s hair out – where girls are funny, supportive friends for each other.” Portman dabbles in onscreen female friendship in “No Strings Attached.” She plays Emma Kurtzman, a doctor for whom love is like a nasty rash: irritating, painful and best avoided. Meanwhile, her colleagues (played by Greta Gerwig and Mindy Kaling) want boyfriends and lament the lack of good guys out there. They support Emma as she enters a sex-only relationship with Adam (Ashton Kutcher), zinging one-liners and cracking wise throughout. It’s the rare romantic comedy where women get laughs, Portman says. “I had been looking for a funny female character for a long time,” she says. “I feel like in romantic comedies often it’s just the girl who gets to kind of wear cute clothes and wants to get married at the end, which is always fun to watch but it’s not necessarily a challenge or exciting to do.” Director Ivan Reitman says Portman found the script on her own and asked for the part.

He recalls being surprised at her interest, then met with her. “I realized as I was talking to her: Oh, this is the girl,” he says. “She is as smart as this character is, because she needs to be that intelligent, but more than that, she has the strength that this girl has, and she has the complexity to portray somebody that is a little bit messed up.” The role called for Portman to be saucy, sexy and even drunk in one scene. Her character is bold, confident and sexually self-assured – the complete opposite of her award-winning “Black Swan” character, who is repressed, girlish and afraid. The back-to-back contrasting roles was “one of those sort of accidents,” the actress says. “I’d been with ‘Black Swan’ for 10 years before it got made, and I’d been with this movie for like three years before it got made, and it just happened to get financing in the same period,” she says. “But it’s always welcome to completely shed a character and do something very, very different.” She’ll be seen in two more very different roles this year. She plays a warrior opposite Danny McBride and James Franco in the comedy-adventure “Your Highness,” and a human friend of a Norse god in Marvel Studios’ anticipated “Thor.” Portman might be promot-

I’m really excited about every single one,” she says. “I don’t think it’s great that they’re like all in this time pe-

I ended up are two very different places,” she told The Associated Press in an email. “It’s been a process. I will always struggle with my weight. It’s the thorn in my flesh.” Standing on a scale one morning and seeing a disappointing number prompted Mandisa to finally get real with herself and her fans. “I had gained weight and was so frustrated at that moment that I said so on Twitter.” She tweeted: “I’m fed-up and over it.” ”I was feeling embarrassed and ashamed. I realized that I had only talked about how great things were. I never let people in when they were not. It was then that I decided

I’d talk about the bad things too,” she said. The result is what Mandisa calls her most honest record to date. She began recording “in a very dark place.” The title track and the song “Just Cry” came out of those early sessions. However, by the end of the process, she said she was back to a place of peace and joy, with the song “Lifeline,” about unwavering trust in God, the last track she recorded. Mandisa is on her way to losing 100 pounds but said she doesn’t have a goal weight. “My only goal is to be healthy physically, spiritually, and emotionally. That is a lifelong journey,” she said.

(AP) — “The Way Back” represents an exquisite example of style over substance, of vast visuals dwarfing the characters and nearly swallowing the story whole. Veteran Australian director Peter Weir, a six-time Oscar nominee (“Witness,” “The Truman Show”), has crafted an old-fashioned historical epic, inspired by the true story of a group of prisoners who escaped a 1940 Soviet labor camp and trudged thousands of miles across unforgiving terrain to their freedom. Not all of them made it, which we might have guessed on our own, but Weir – who cowrote the screenplay with Keith Clarke, based on Slavomir Rawicz’s book “The Long Walk” – informs us with a title card at the start that three men would walk out of the Himalayas at the end of this arduous journey. The result: Despite the seriousness of the subject matter, the film loses some of its tension because we pretty much know the outcome, leaving us only to wonder who will live and who will die, as if we’re watching an episode of “Survivor: Siberian Gulag.” And it is serious – or at least, it should be. Weir alternates between vivid, convincing images of the harsh surroundings – sweepingly shot on location in Bulgaria, Morocco and India – and detailed close-ups of the toll this trip has taken on the characters’ faces, their bodies, and most especially their feet. But except for Ed Harris as a mysterious American, Jim Sturgess as an idealistic Polish officer and Colin Farrell as an over-the-top Russian thug, the remaining characters are essentially interchangeable. Even though the film feels overlong, insufficient time was spent fleshing out these people to

That only emphasizes the film’s episodic, almost video game-like structure: Now they’re in a blizzard, now they’re in the forest, now they’re trekking through rocky terrain, now they’re slogging across sand. Survive one level and then it’s onto the next, and the next. The tension should be unbearable; instead, “The Way Back” feels like exactly what it is: a long, slow march toward death. Saoirse Ronan livens things up as a young Polish woman traveling alone who hooks up with the group about halfway

through – even though they’re divided over whether to allow her to join them. Not only is she spirited and friendly, which helps draw out some of their back stories, but she also has handy-dandy items like soap, which they desperately need. Ronan’s scenes with Harris, in which they develop a sort of father-daughter relationship, are some of the most satisfying; despite the seemingly insurmountable conditions, she maintains an almost ethereal quality, in stark contrast to his pragmatism. The moments in which they bond make you wish there were more like them, and they come too late.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT

West Virginia’s Kevin Jones, left, and Joe Mazzulla, right, sit and watch the Marshall crowd rush the court following the Thundering Herd’s 75-71 win over the Mountaineers Wednesday at the Capital Classic in Charleston.

Comeback falls short as Marshall upsets No. 21 WVU, 75-71 Sports Writer

CHARLESTON, W.VA. — Bob Huggins was afraid of this. Following West Virginia’s upset win over then-No. 8 Purdue Sunday, the head coach said the win over the Boilermakers wouldn’t mean a thing if the Mountaineers didn’t take care of business against Marshall in the Capital Classic. Consider it meaningless. No. 21 West Virginia

couldn’t come back from a 24-point, second-half deficit to fall to Marshall 75-71 Wednesday at the Charleston Civic Center. It was the Mountaineers’ first loss to the Thundering Herd since 2006, and it ended WVU’s four-game winning streak. After WVU fans stormed the court after beating Purdue Sunday, it was Marshall fans who flooded the Charleston Civic Center floor Wednesday.

“We didn’t do what we needed to do to win,” Huggins said. “We were not ready to play.” West Virginia (12-5, 3-2 Big East Conference) was able to cut down the 24-point deficit to just three points, 7269, within the final minute, but Marshall (13-5, 1-2 Conference USA) escaped by finishing 10-for-14 from the foul line in the final two minutes. Marshall led 35-21 at the half after going on a 22-3 run. The Herd took advantage of

WVU’s foul trouble that put starters Kevin Jones and John Flowers on the bench for much of the first 20 minutes. After taking an 18-13 advantage, West Virginia also went cold from the field. A Deniz Kilicli layup with 8:29 left in the opening half was WVU’s last field goal until the second half. The team also only made 3-of-9 free throws and committed 13 turnovers, off which the Thundering Herd scored 21 points.

“I told them at halftime that the biggest indicator that you are not ready to play is you get out-rebounded and do not make free throws,” Huggins said. WVU slowly began to eat away at Marshall’s lead in the second half when it went on an 8-0 burst. The Mountaineers followed that up with a 17-2 run thanks to 13 points courtesy of free throws.

THE DAILY ATHENAEUM

Thursday January 20, 2011

The West Virginia women’s basketball team held Marshall to a school-record 21 points in the Mountaineers’ 78-21 win Wednesday at the Charleston Civic Center. WVU head coach Mike Carey wasn’t impressed. “I’ve seen us defend better,” Carey said. The West Virginia defense held the Thundering Herd to just 11 percent shooting from the field, making just 5-of-45 shot attempts, to win its sixth straight Chesapeake Energy Capital Classic. The previous WVU re-

cord for points allowed and margin of victory was 26 and 67, respectively, which were both set against Presbyterian on Dec. 15, 2007. “They missed some easy points and missed a bunch of foul shots,” Carey said of Marshall. “I’ve seen us up in the lanes a little more and a little harder than we were today. “We just came out and did what we had to do today.” West Virginia came out strong from the opening tip, jumping out to a 10-0 run before Marshall’s Adrian Randall hit a jumper to give the Herd their first points of the game with 14:53 to go in the first half.

The spark to that big run to kick the game off was, in fact, WVU’s defense, as the Mountaineers forced six turnovers before allowing the Herd to score. West Virginia was also able to take advantage of those mistakes on the offensive end. Twenty-two of WVU’s 41 first-half points came off Herd turnovers. After leading 41-11 at the half, West Virginia used a large lead to bring in bench players to rest the starters in the final 20 minutes of the game, something Carey thinks will be valuable to his

WVU/MU should end women’s series Those few that watched the West Virginia and Marshall women’s basketball game last night may have seen the last of the in-state rivalry. WVU and Marshall officials have been discussing the future of the women’s rivalry, associate athletic director Mike Parson confirmed Wednesday. “There is a rumor going around that this will be the last year for the series, but that’s not necessarily true,” Parsons said. “There are always discussions.” The series is renewed each year, he added, so there is the potential it may not be continued next season. One alternative to playing the game in Charleston each year would be to have a homeand-home series, where the WVU Coliseum would host the game every other year, and Marshall would host the game in between. Parsons confirmed that a home-and-home series has been discussed between officials at the two athletic departments. West Virginia head coach Mike Carey said following Wednesday night’s 78-21 blowout of the Thundering Herd that he would not be interested in having a home-and-home series with Marshall. “We don’t want to do that. We don’t have to do that,” Carey said. This talk comes in the wake of much discussion about the WVU/Marshall football rivalry. The Mountaineers don’t necessarily want to play Marshall each year and definitely don’t want to have a home-andhome series with the Thundering Herd in the future. With the addition of TCU to the Big East Conference and the potential of another team in the future, Marshall doesn’t fit well in the schedule. There just isn’t enough space for the game with the Maryland series, a team like LSU and a lowerdivision foe as nonconference opponents. In the last six meetings in the women’s basketball series – all WVU wins – the Mountaineers outscored Marshall by more than 23 points on average per game. It culminated Wednesday in what was the most lopsided victory in the series. Marshall had just eight healthy players, and the ninthranked Mountaineers proved to be one of the nation’s elite. No player for the Herd had more than one basket in the best defensive performance in WVU’s program history. West Virginia held Marshall to just 21 points – a school record. Marshall didn’t have a chance, just like it hasn’t in a long, long time against WVU. “I don’t want to go homeand-home, because that’s not a good situation for us. If they want to play it on a different night at neutral site, I’m all for that,” Carey said. “I don’t have that call. That’s above my pay grade. I don’t have any idea, and I haven’t been asked my opinion.” Carey was extremely disappointed with the 849 fans in attendance Wednesday. In the last two years prior to this year’s meeting, the women’s game actually attracted more than 2,000 fans – many of whom were early attendees to the men’s game. But, this year’s effort was a disaster after moving the game to an earlier start time at 5:30 p.m. “We’re a top-10 program, and we can’t get a crowd down here,” said a disgruntled Carey. “Our athletic directors and their athletic directors have been talking.” The discussions to end this series in women’s basketball should continue. This series needs to die – and not just in women’s basketball, either. West Virginia has become one of the premiere women’s basketball programs in the country over the last few years. Playing a program like Marshall every season means nothing to WVU and everything to the Thundering Herd. There is nothing the Mountaineers can prove or improve by playing Marshall. Just end the series, WVU. anthony.dobies@mail.wvu.edu

WVU says win streak is all for naught Dunning’s breakout BY TONY DOBIES SPORTS EDITOR

CHARLESTON, W.Va.—­ With more than 16 minutes remaining in the game, the entire bench of the West Virginia men’s basketball team sat in disbelief. Some stared off into space. Others held towels over their eyes. All the coaches could do was shake their heads as the No. 21 Mountaineers went down to unranked Marshall by 24 points. Despite a furious comeback by WVU, it could not recover from a 24-point secondhalf deficit in a 75-71 upset of Marshall. “Do you think we’re going to be in the top 25 next week?” asked WVU head coach Bob Huggins. “We just gave away everything that we worked so hard on during that winning streak.” West Virginia came into the game as one of the hottest teams in the country. The Mountaineers had won fourstraight games – including two against top 25 teams – and were beginning to talk of another Final Four run. That talk, and some of WVU’s confidence, are now long gone following the loss to the Herd. “It bothers me we weren’t ready to play,” said WVU forward Kevin Jones. “We knew where we were at four games ago, and we knew we didn’t want to be in that spot again … That’s a cause for concern, and we need to refocus.” Following the 68-64 upset of then-No. 8 Purdue Sunday, Huggins told his team if it would lose to Marshall, the four-game winning streak would be all for naught. “We’re right back to where we started when we lost to St. John’s and Marquette,” said point guard Joe Mazzulla. “We

tried to not let the win affect us … It’s just hard to match the intensity of that team tonight.” WVU believed it had started to develop into its new roles following the Purdue game, but down by more than 20 points in the middle of the second half, players began to try to take control of the game without help. Guard Casey Mitchell called for the ball at one point and dribbled into a pack of closing defenders for the turnover. A few possessions later, point guard Truck Bryant tried to drive against a Marshall defender before losing his balance and getting called for the charge. “We are not good enough and do not have good enough players to not play the game. It’s painfully obvious,” Huggins said. “We came out in the second half with guys who thought they could win it on their own … When we don’t play together, we’re not very good.” Despite all that, West Virginia did make an effort to come back. After being down by 24 points in the second half at one point, the Mountaineers cut the lead to 15 with about 10 minutes to play. “It was a run, but that’s how we should’ve played the entire game,” Mazzulla said. “That’s how we played during our winning streak, and we went away from it.” The lead was cut down to 10 points with nine minutes to play. After WVU cut the deficit to eight points, Marshall’s Damier Pitts hit a three with nearly five minutes to play, giving the Thundering Herd an 11-point advantage forcing a Huggins timeout. WVU would get as close as three points with under a minute to play, but, in the end, it was Marshall’s night under first-year head coach Tom

Herrion. “It was a hype atmosphere, and everyone but us was pumped up,” Jones said. “We weren’t until the second half, and that’s not how it should be. If we were pumped up from the beginning, it wouldn’t have been like this.” Now, West Virginia heads back into Big East Conference play following a span of

two-straight non-conference games. The Mountaineers play South Florida Sunday at the WVU Coliseum. Still, they will have four days to let the loss to Marshall stay in their minds. “We just have to pay more attention to detail … This South Florida game is a mustwin for us,” Jones said. anthony.dobies@mail.wvu.edu

Ayana Dunning has been in search of a dominating performance since she arrived at West Virginia. She got that performance Wednesday leading the No. 9 Mountaineer women’s basketball team with a season-high 16 points in a 78-21 win over Marshall. Dunning, who also tied her season-high with seven rebounds and four steals, was named the Chesapeake Energy Capital Classic MVP. “It felt good. I’m finally getting in a rhythm,” Dunning said. “Coach just said we needed to pound it inside and take advantage of our advantages.” The redshirt sophomore has scored 10 points two other times this season, but Dunning said those showings didn’t feel as complete as Wednesday’s game. The 6-foot-3 center compared it to games she had at LSU as a freshman such as her 20-point, 10-rebound performance against Vanderbilt. Coming into Wednesday’s game, Dunning was averaging 3.8 points and 4.1 rebounds. “I’m starting to get (back to where I was at LSU),” Dunning said. “Slowly, but surely, I’m getting back to playing my complete game.” Aside from leading the Mountaineers in scoring against the Thundering Herd, Dunning also held her own against Marshall forward and leading scorer Tynikki Crook. Crook, who entered Wednesday’s game averaging 18 points and 9.9 rebounds, scored just three points and fouled out with 13:20 left in the game. “She was very physical,” said

Four WVU Basketball prospects in Primetime Shootout field Morgantown’s elite prep basketball tournament gets underway Friday at University High School BY TONY DOBIES SPORTS EDITOR

More than 75 Division I college basketball prospects will be in Morgantown this weekend for the second Primetime Shootout. The tournament, which takes place Friday and Saturday at University High School, is the perfect time to catch potential future Mountaineers.

A weekend pass for students is $10 and $22 for adults. A Friday pass costs $7 for students and $15 for adults. On Saturday, a day pass costs $8 for students and $16 for adults. Tickets have been on sale since Jan. 7, and can be purchased at the Greater Morgantown Convention and Visitors Bureau and Triple S Harley-Davidson. For a complete tournament

schedule, visit tourmorgantown.com. All proceeds from the tournament will be shared by the WVU Children’s Hospital and Remember the Miners. Four top prospects who have WVU on their radar will make their way to Morgantown. Those include Columbia (Ga.) High School star Omar Calhoun, who is ranked as the 67th-best player in the 2012 class. Teammate Jarmal Reid,

the 90th-ranked player in the 2012 class, also has WVU on his long list. The eighth-ranked player for the 2012 class, center DaJuan Coleman, will show off for Jamesville-Dewitt (N.Y.) High School. So will Huntington Prep’s (W.Va.) center Phillip Nolan – the 89th-ranked player in the 2012 class. Other prospects, like uncommitted five-star guard Ben

McLemore and Duke commit Quinn Cook, will be on hand. Several other commits to Big East schools, like St. John’s and Villanova, will also be in attendance this weekend. The tournament features instate teams like Morgantown High School, Huntington Prep, Wheeling Park High School and Preston County High School. Those teams will go up against some of the top competition in

the country, including No. 9 Oak Hill Academy, among others. Last year’s tournament played games at the WVU Coliseum and Morgantown High School gym. But, because of scheduling conflicts – including the West Virginia women’s basketball game against South Florida – the Coliseum wasn’t an option. anthony.dobies@mail.wvu.edu

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT

Comeback falls short as Marshall upsets No. 21 WVU, 75-71 Sports Writer

CHARLESTON, W.VA. — Bob Huggins was afraid of this. Following West Virginia’s upset win over then-No. 8 Purdue Sunday, the head coach said the win over the Boilermakers wouldn’t mean a thing if the Mountaineers didn’t take care of business against Marshall in the Capital Classic. Consider it meaningless. No. 21 West Virginia

couldn’t come back from a 24-point, second-half deficit to fall to Marshall 75-71 Wednesday at the Charleston Civic Center. It was the Mountaineers’ first loss to the Thundering Herd since 2006, and it ended WVU’s four-game winning streak. After WVU fans stormed the court after beating Purdue Sunday, it was Marshall fans who flooded the Charleston Civic Center floor Wednesday.

“We didn’t do what we needed to do to win,” Huggins said. “We were not ready to play.” West Virginia (12-5, 3-2 Big East Conference) was able to cut down the 24-point deficit to just three points, 7269, within the final minute, but Marshall (13-5, 1-2 Conference USA) escaped by finishing 10-for-14 from the foul line in the final two minutes. Marshall led 35-21 at the half after going on a 22-3 run. The Herd took advantage of

WVU’s foul trouble that put starters Kevin Jones and John Flowers on the bench for much of the first 20 minutes. After taking an 18-13 advantage, West Virginia also went cold from the field. A Deniz Kilicli layup with 8:29 left in the opening half was WVU’s last field goal until the second half. The team also only made 3-of-9 free throws and committed 13 turnovers, off which the Thundering Herd scored 21 points.

“I told them at halftime that the biggest indicator that you are not ready to play is you get out-rebounded and do not make free throws,” Huggins said. WVU slowly began to eat away at Marshall’s lead in the second half when it went on an 8-0 burst. The Mountaineers followed that up with a 17-2 run thanks to 13 points courtesy of free throws.

THE DAILY ATHENAEUM

Thursday January 20, 2011

The West Virginia women’s basketball team held Marshall to a school-record 21 points in the Mountaineers’ 78-21 win Wednesday at the Charleston Civic Center. WVU head coach Mike Carey wasn’t impressed. “I’ve seen us defend better,” Carey said. The West Virginia defense held the Thundering Herd to just 11 percent shooting from the field, making just 5-of-45 shot attempts, to win its sixth straight Chesapeake Energy Capital Classic. The previous WVU re-

cord for points allowed and margin of victory was 26 and 67, respectively, which were both set against Presbyterian on Dec. 15, 2007. “They missed some easy points and missed a bunch of foul shots,” Carey said of Marshall. “I’ve seen us up in the lanes a little more and a little harder than we were today. “We just came out and did what we had to do today.” West Virginia came out strong from the opening tip, jumping out to a 10-0 run before Marshall’s Adrian Randall hit a jumper to give the Herd their first points of the game with 14:53 to go in the first half.

The spark to that big run to kick the game off was, in fact, WVU’s defense, as the Mountaineers forced six turnovers before allowing the Herd to score. West Virginia was also able to take advantage of those mistakes on the offensive end. Twenty-two of WVU’s 41 first-half points came off Herd turnovers. After leading 41-11 at the half, West Virginia used a large lead to bring in bench players to rest the starters in the final 20 minutes of the game, something Carey thinks will be valuable to his

TONY DOBIES SPORTS EDITOR

WVU/MU should end women’s series Those few that watched the West Virginia and Marshall women’s basketball game last night may have seen the last of the in-state rivalry. WVU and Marshall officials have been discussing the future of the women’s rivalry, associate athletic director Mike Parson confirmed Wednesday. “There is a rumor going around that this will be the last year for the series, but that’s not necessarily true,” Parsons said. “There are always discussions.” The series is renewed each year, he added, so there is the potential it may not be continued next season. One alternative to playing the game in Charleston each year would be to have a homeand-home series, where the WVU Coliseum would host the game every other year, and Marshall would host the game in between. Parsons confirmed that a home-and-home series has been discussed between officials at the two athletic departments. West Virginia head coach Mike Carey said following Wednesday night’s 78-21 blowout of the Thundering Herd that he would not be interested in having a home-and-home series with Marshall. “We don’t want to do that. We don’t have to do that,” Carey said. This talk comes in the wake of much discussion about the WVU/Marshall football rivalry. The Mountaineers don’t necessarily want to play Marshall each year and definitely don’t want to have a home-andhome series with the Thundering Herd in the future. With the addition of TCU to the Big East Conference and the potential of another team in the future, Marshall doesn’t fit well in the schedule. There just isn’t enough space for the game with the Maryland series, a team like LSU and a lowerdivision foe as nonconference opponents. In the last six meetings in the women’s basketball series – all WVU wins – the Mountaineers outscored Marshall by more than 23 points on average per game. It culminated Wednesday in what was the most lopsided victory in the series. Marshall had just eight healthy players, and the ninthranked Mountaineers proved to be one of the nation’s elite. No player for the Herd had more than one basket in the best defensive performance in WVU’s program history. West Virginia held Marshall to just 21 points – a school record. Marshall didn’t have a chance, just like it hasn’t in a long, long time against WVU. “I don’t want to go homeand-home, because that’s not a good situation for us. If they want to play it on a different night at neutral site, I’m all for that,” Carey said. “I don’t have that call. That’s above my pay grade. I don’t have any idea, and I haven’t been asked my opinion.” Carey was extremely disappointed with the 849 fans in attendance Wednesday. In the last two years prior to this year’s meeting, the women’s game actually attracted more than 2,000 fans – many of whom were early attendees to the men’s game. But, this year’s effort was a disaster after moving the game to an earlier start time at 5:30 p.m. “We’re a top-10 program, and we can’t get a crowd down here,” said a disgruntled Carey. “Our athletic directors and their athletic directors have been talking.” The discussions to end this series in women’s basketball should continue. This series needs to die – and not just in women’s basketball, either. West Virginia has become one of the premiere women’s basketball programs in the country over the last few years. Playing a program like Marshall every season means nothing to WVU and everything to the Thundering Herd. There is nothing the Mountaineers can prove or improve by playing Marshall. Just end the series, WVU. anthony.dobies@mail.wvu.edu

WVU says win streak is all for naught Dunning’s breakout BY TONY DOBIES SPORTS EDITOR

CHARLESTON, W.Va.—­ With more than 16 minutes remaining in the game, the entire bench of the West Virginia men’s basketball team sat in disbelief. Some stared off into space. Others held towels over their eyes. All the coaches could do was shake their heads as the No. 21 Mountaineers went down to unranked Marshall by 24 points. Despite a furious comeback by WVU, it could not recover from a 24-point secondhalf deficit in a 75-71 upset of Marshall. “Do you think we’re going to be in the top 25 next week?” asked WVU head coach Bob Huggins. “We just gave away everything that we worked so hard on during that winning streak.” West Virginia came into the game as one of the hottest teams in the country. The Mountaineers had won fourstraight games – including two against top 25 teams – and were beginning to talk of another Final Four run. That talk, and some of WVU’s confidence, are now long gone following the loss to the Herd. “It bothers me we weren’t ready to play,” said WVU forward Kevin Jones. “We knew where we were at four games ago, and we knew we didn’t want to be in that spot again … That’s a cause for concern, and we need to refocus.” Following the 68-64 upset of then-No. 8 Purdue Sunday, Huggins told his team if it would lose to Marshall, the four-game winning streak would be all for naught. “We’re right back to where we started when we lost to St. John’s and Marquette,” said point guard Joe Mazzulla. “We

tried to not let the win affect us … It’s just hard to match the intensity of that team tonight.” WVU believed it had started to develop into its new roles following the Purdue game, but down by more than 20 points in the middle of the second half, players began to try to take control of the game without help. Guard Casey Mitchell called for the ball at one point and dribbled into a pack of closing defenders for the turnover. A few possessions later, point guard Truck Bryant tried to drive against a Marshall defender before losing his balance and getting called for the charge. “We are not good enough and do not have good enough players to not play the game. It’s painfully obvious,” Huggins said. “We came out in the second half with guys who thought they could win it on their own … When we don’t play together, we’re not very good.” Despite all that, West Virginia did make an effort to come back. After being down by 24 points in the second half at one point, the Mountaineers cut the lead to 15 with about 10 minutes to play. “It was a run, but that’s how we should’ve played the entire game,” Mazzulla said. “That’s how we played during our winning streak, and we went away from it.” The lead was cut down to 10 points with nine minutes to play. After WVU cut the deficit to eight points, Marshall’s Damier Pitts hit a three with nearly five minutes to play, giving the Thundering Herd an 11-point advantage forcing a Huggins timeout. WVU would get as close as three points with under a minute to play, but, in the end, it was Marshall’s night under first-year head coach Tom

Herrion. “It was a hype atmosphere, and everyone but us was pumped up,” Jones said. “We weren’t until the second half, and that’s not how it should be. If we were pumped up from the beginning, it wouldn’t have been like this.” Now, West Virginia heads back into Big East Conference play following a span of

two-straight non-conference games. The Mountaineers play South Florida Sunday at the WVU Coliseum. Still, they will have four days to let the loss to Marshall stay in their minds. “We just have to pay more attention to detail … This South Florida game is a mustwin for us,” Jones said. anthony.dobies@mail.wvu.edu

Ayana Dunning has been in search of a dominating performance since she arrived at West Virginia. She got that performance Wednesday leading the No. 9 Mountaineer women’s basketball team with a season-high 16 points in a 78-21 win over Marshall. Dunning, who also tied her season-high with seven rebounds and four steals, was named the Chesapeake Energy Capital Classic MVP. “It felt good. I’m finally getting in a rhythm,” Dunning said. “Coach just said we needed to pound it inside and take advantage of our advantages.” The redshirt sophomore has scored 10 points two other times this season, but Dunning said those showings didn’t feel as complete as Wednesday’s game. The 6-foot-3 center compared it to games she had at LSU as a freshman such as her 20-point, 10-rebound performance against Vanderbilt. Coming into Wednesday’s game, Dunning was averaging 3.8 points and 4.1 rebounds. “I’m starting to get (back to where I was at LSU),” Dunning said. “Slowly, but surely, I’m getting back to playing my complete game.” Aside from leading the Mountaineers in scoring against the Thundering Herd, Dunning also held her own against Marshall forward and leading scorer Tynikki Crook. Crook, who entered Wednesday’s game averaging 18 points and 9.9 rebounds, scored just three points and fouled out with 13:20 left in the game. “She was very physical,” said

Samara: WVU could be ‘elite’ BY DEREK DENNENY SPORTS WRITER

First-year head coach Tina Samara will begin her first spring season with the West Virginia tennis team Saturday against Bowling Green in Louisville. Samara, who was hired by WVU Athletic Director Oliver Luck in September, coached her squad in the fall season and says her team is ready to return to action after a productive break. “I have already seen the dedication this group has after they came back from winter break fit and ready to go,” Samara said. The Mountaineers will play Louisville Sunday and travel to Morehead State Monday before returning to West Virginia for four straight home matches including hosting James Madison and Liberty at the Greenbrier on Jan. 29.

Samara, a former head coach at Louisiana-Lafayette and an assistant at Colorado, said the Mountaineers could have a breakout season as long as the team cuts down on its mistakes and takes advantage of those made by its opponents. The Mountaineers finished 2010 with a 17-7 record along with an 8-0 mark at home last spring. “We are really going to work hard this year, but we can compete with anyone,” Samara said. “This group has a lot of talent, but I don’t think they have reached their potential yet, and that’s definitely not a bad thing. “I really do feel that this team has the potential to be one of the nation’s elite, and that is our goal this season.” The Mountaineers return six players from last year’s team, while freshmen Mary Chupa, Anna Rodionova and Melis Tanik join the squad.

Highlighting the returning players is the team’s lone senior, Ashley Pilsbury, who played at the No. 2 through No. 6 spots last season while also posting a 16-7 doubles record with Gabriela Blaskovicova. Veronica Cardenas, Kathryn Haught and Catie Wickline also returns, along with sophomore Liv Pettersson. Pettersson, a native of Sweeden, is considered one of WVU’s most athletic players and doubles partner. Chupa was considered the No. 1 recruit in the state of North Carolina a season ago, while Tanik’s team won the Michigan state championship last season. Rodionava is a native of Russia and spent the last four years studying at the Schiller International School while honing her skills at Sanchez-Casal tennis Academy. derek.denneny@mail.wvu.edu

After beginning the season with two consecutive road trips, the No. 8 West Virginia track team finally gets to return home when it hosts the WV State Farm Games Saturday. The Mountaineers have traveled to Penn State and Kent, Ohio, already this season. The State Farm Games will be the team’s only home match of the spring season, excluding its Gold-Blue meet on Feb. 12. “The last two weekends we have gotten on a bus at

5:55 a.m., and traveled to our meets,” said WVU head coach Sean Cleary. “Being at home we will get the chance to sleep in our own beds and compete at our home track. It should be good for the team, as we should be fully rested.” Although the only team that has been announced to compete with WVU has been California (Pa.), Cleary is excited for the competition. The Mountaineers took first place in 15 of the 19 categories last season when they hosted the same event. Cleary said he is counting

on his team to come out with the same tenacity they have been running with all year and will be looking for strong performances from Chelsea Carrier and Kaitlyn Gillespie once again this weekend. “I was pleased with our team last weekend (at the Doug Raymond Invitational),” Cleary said. “I felt the group did a great job moving forward, but our objective is to continue improving week-in and week-out throughout the season.” derek.denneny@mail.wvu.edu

AUSTIN, Texas (AP)—The University of Texas, which already has one of the wealthiest athletic programs in the country, is lining up for even money. Texas and ESPN on Wednesday announced a 20-year, $300 million deal for a 24-hour television network that will broadcast Longhorn sports, including at least one football game and eight basketball games per season, and other sports and academic content. “We want to define what it means to be ‘the’ public university,” Texas President William Powers said. “The challenge is to create new sources of revenue to support our mission.” The deal includes Texas’ licensing and marketing partner IMG College, with more than 80 percent of revenue set to go to the university. It will not replace existing television deals between the Big 12 and both ESPN-ABC and Fox. ESPN will handle distribution of the still unnamed network via cable or satellite in Texas and other states, and has already had preliminary conversations with Time Warner Cable and Comcast Corp. The network is scheduled to launch in September and will broadcast at least 200 Texas sporting events per year. Football will include at least one live broadcast and multiple replays from other networks, the annual spring football scrimmage and pre-game and postgame coverage. “We’re going to cover (Texas) football like it’s never been covered before,” said Burke Magnus, senior vice president of college sports programming for ESPN, the sports media giant based in Bristol, Conn. Basketball will include a minimum of eight live games and replays of games broadcast on other networks. Women’s basketball, baseball, volleyball, soccer and other sports, coaches shows, biographies and highlights also would be broadcast. Programming will also include some academic and cultural shows. The contract will send least $25 million to academics over the next five years, Powers said. George Bodenheimer, president of ESPN Inc. and ABC Sports, called the network “a testament to the school’s remarkable, tradition-rich success and widespread, devoted fan base.”
