West Virginia University canceled all classes after 4 p.m. Wednesday due to inclement weather. Students, faculty and staff were notified of the cancellation at 2:32 p.m. via WVU alert, MIX and WVUToday. An assessment will be made at 4 a.m. Thursday to decide the status of classes. After Monongalia Emergency Centralized Communications Agency issued a statement at 1:56 p.m. asking residents to stay off the roads so plow and salt trucks can reach them, WVU canceled classes, said Narvel Weese, vice president of Administration and Finance. “The road conditions, they really didn’t start to deteriorate until about 2 o’clock,” Weese said. “Our intent and hope is we want classes to continue to take place.” More than 4 inches of snow accumulated on the ground by 4 p.m., and Weese said many classes after 4 p.m. are graduate courses in which people are traveling long distances to Morgantown. “From my understanding,

The Monongalia Emergency Centralized Communications Agency reported 60 traffic incidents in Morgantown by 4 p.m. Wednesday. Ten of the incidents reported injuries. MECCA also reported 45 calls for roadside assistance and 20 hazardous road conditions were reported. More than four inches of snow accumulated on Wednesday, said Brad Rehak of the National Weather Service. “The one thing we haven’t had are calls about trees or wires being down, but I’m sure those will come later,” said a MECCA representative. “There have been roads across the county being closed down and will continue to close throughout the night.” Monongalia County law enforcement agencies and MECCA requested motorist stay off roadways unless travel

The note found with alleged racial slurs and drawings in West Virginia University’s student food pantry has been deemed “not criminal” by Chief Bob Roberts of the University Police Department. Jacqueline Dooley, program coordinator of Student Organization Services, filed a police report on Jan. 18 after she found the note she believes was left on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. “The words were definitely offensive and should not have been used,” Roberts said. “But I don’t believe them to be criminal. I do not think this is a hate crime.” The racial slurs were written on the sign-up sheet for the food pantry, Roberts said. There were other “thank you’s” from students signing out food from the pantry, he said. The note allegedly depicted a monkey with large ears and was signed with a “thanks” and several racial slurs, Dooley said. Roberts said instead of the note allegedly depicting a monkey with large ears, there were four “smiley faces” along with the racial slurs. Dooley said the note was possibly targeting her because she is an AfricanAmerican and director of The Rack, the student food pantry located in the Student Organization Services wing of the Mountainlair.

Roberts said students speak differently toward friends but does not believe the messages were meant to be hateful or malicious. “It was offensive. It may not be illegal, but in my mind, I believe it is a hate crime,” Dooley said. Two classes from the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences sent Dooley a two-page letter of regret for what had happened to her, she said. The letter included sentiments like “we’re sorry this happened to you,” and said Dooley had a great initiative with the pantry and was doing a good thing. She said she does not feel her safety is at risk. The police report was not given to WVU’s Office of Social Justice, said Jennifer Mcintosh, executive officer for social justice. Mcintosh said since no report was given to the office, no steps would be taken to investigate the matter further. “It’s abhorrent and inappropriate. It’s not tolerable, and whoever did this did a terrible thing,” Mcintosh said. Dooley said she has talked to a witness who spotted four people near The Rack on Jan. 17. after hearing noises. The witness was unsure whether or not the individuals are WVU students. The Mountainlair night staff has been alerted of the four individuals’ appearance, she said.

Several roads within the city were closed due to unsafe conditions such as Willey Street, Van Voorhis Road, Mon. Boulevard, Willowdale Road and Exit 1 on Interstate-68. More than 2,900 residents on Collins Ferry Road were without power for an hour, said Mark Nitowski, Allegheny Power spokesperson. More than 50 residents were also out of power in other parts of the city for more than an hour, he said. West Virginia University canceled all classes at 4 p.m. Wednesday in order to clear and treat roads and sidewalks. Many students braved

the wintry conditions to attend their morning and afternoon classes. “I’ve been avoiding going outside as much as I can by cutting through buildings,” said Rebecca Rich, a sophomore advertising major. Students were seen holding onto each other or anything that was connected to the ground in order to keep from falling down steps or on slush-covered roads. “I try not to stop in the snow too much and usually wear boots instead of holey tennis shoes like I am now,” said Josh Carte, a freshman pre-engineering major. “I try to layer up with jeans and long johns to keep warm.” Mark Stier, a freshman international studies student, also tried to stay warm while bearing the elements through the morning. “I just wear lots of layers to make sure I am warm while traveling between classes,” Stier said.

A professor and two graduate students at West Virginia University are working on an 18-month project to remove natural gas from Marcellus Shale, one of the largest known natural gas fields in the world. Marcellus Shale, an immense stretch of rock that runs deep underground through parts of Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and West Virginia, is rich in natural gas. “The petroleum and natural gas division is one of few organizations like it in the country,” said Mary Dillon, marketing and communications coordinator for WVU’s College of Engineering and Mineral Resources. “Since Marcellus Shale is happening in our backyard, it’s great to be involved from a research standpoint.” The goal is to obtain as much natural gas as possible while doing the least amount of damage to the environment, said Shahab Mohaghegh, a WVU professor of petroleum and natural gas engineering and principal investigator of the project. “There is a new technology that the industry has been pioneering for the last 15 to 20 years,” Mohaghegh said. “When it began, everybody thought we were crazy, and it wasn’t until quite recently that the industry realized its value.” The new technology, called “top-down modeling,” integrates traditional reservoir engineering anal-

ysis with new technology to generate a full-field model. By using the reverse of the traditional approach, researchers save time and resources while obtaining accurate predictive models. Facilities at WVU were used in the application of this groundbreaking technology, while the information remains public. “WVU’s part is to build a realistic model of gas production in Marcellus Shale,” Mohaghegh said. “If we can do this, we will be able to predict how the different wells will behave.” WVU is working with numerous parties to be successful in their endeavors at Marcellus Shale, including the University of Texas at Austin, Pennsylvania State University, Pinnacle Technologies, Range Resources, and Schlumberger Gas Institute, Mohaghegh said. Marcellus Shale controversy surrounds a way of drilling previously used called “fracking,” in which 8 million gallons of water and chemical additives mixed with sand or similar materials are pumped down a well under high pressure. This allows contaminated water to escape to the surface as well as unwanted gas release in the well. “Everybody is interested in Marcellus Shale right now,” said Mohaghegh. “We want to show that our technology will help increase production, while decreasing the environmental footprint it leaves.” danewsroom@mail.wvu.edu

However, no arrangements were made for anyone stuck on the Downtown Campus. “We have approximately 15,000 to 20,000 students living within walking distance from the campus,” Weese said. “We’re asking people to use a little bit of personal judgement. I think you know when you’re comfortable to walk to campus in the snow.” He said students enrolled in classes where professors require attendance, even during questionable conditions, should raise the issue with the provost. “Until we hear from MECCA or the governor’s office, if we have a problem, we don’t feel we’re in a position to cancel classes or to close the Univer-

Student Government Association canceled its scheduled meeting, but the WVU Libraries and the Student Recreation Center remained open for regular hours, Weese said.

Govt: New rules would cut thousands of coal jobs

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The Obama administration’s own experts estimate their proposal for protecting streams from coal mining would eliminate thousands of jobs and slash production across much of the country, according to a government document obtained by The Associated Press. The Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement document says the agency’s preferred rules would impose standards for water quality and restrictions on mining methods that would affect the quality or quantity of streams near coal mines. The rules are supposed to replace Bush-era regulations that set up buffer zones around streams and were aimed chiefly at mountaintop removal mining in Appalachia. The proposal – part of a draft environmental impact statement – would affect coal mines from Louisiana to Alaska. The office, a branch of the Interior Department, estimated that the protections would trim coal production to the point that an estimated 7,000 of the nation’s 80,600

coal mining jobs would be lost. Production would decrease or stay flat in 22 states, but climb 15 percent in North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana. A spokesman for the surface mining reclamation office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The agency maintains in the document that its proposal “attempts to balance the protection of natural resources with imposing a reasonable administrative and economic burden on the coal mining industry.” The National Mining Association blasted the proposal, saying the federal agency is vastly underestimating the economic impact. “OSM’s preferred alternative will destroy tens of thousands of coal-related jobs across the country from Appalachia to Alaska and Illinois to Texas with no demonstrated benefit to the environment,” the trade group said in a statement. “OSM’s own analysis provides a very conservative estimate of jobs that will be eliminated, incomes that will be lost and state revenues that will be foregone at both surface and underground coal

mining operations.” The agency as submitted the proposal to several coal producing states for feedback before it releases proposed regulations by the end of February. The states aren’t happy with what they’ve seen. They blasted the proposal as “nonsensical and difficult to follow” in a Nov. 23 letter to Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement director Joe Pizarchik. The letter was signed by officials from Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming. “Neither the environmental impact statement nor the administrative record that OSM has developed over 30plus year of regulation ... justify the sweeping changes that they’re proposing to make,” West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection official Thomas Clarke told the Associated Press on Wednesday. “I’ve had OSM technical people who are concerned with stream impacts and outside contractors for OSM who are subcontractors on the EIS give me their opinion that the whole thing’s a bunch of junk.”

W.Va. ranks 4th in mercury emissions

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia’s coal-fired power plants spew enough mercury from their stacks to rank the state fourth in the nation for such emissions, according to a report released Wednesday by an environmental group. The group Environment America said it hoped local and national lawmakers would support federal efforts to efforts to curb mercury emissions from power plants. Its findings are based on the Toxics Release Inventory, an online storehouse of pollution data that power companies provide annually to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, said group spokeswoman Lauren Randall. Mercury is released through the burning of coal and settles out of the air into rivers and lakes, moving into the human food chain through fish. In large doses, it can damage the brain and other vital organs. Earlier this month, the state Bureau for Public Health, the Division of Natural Resources and Department of Environmental Protection modified fish consumption advisories for smallmouth bass in Fish Creek and the Shenandoah

River because of elevated mercury levels. The agencies also modified the advisory for walleye in Summersville Lake because of lower mercury levels. West Virginia is the secondlargest coal producing state in the nation, and a lot of that coal is used to produce electricity. The group said Dominion’s Mount Storm power station ranked ninth on the Top 10 list of power plants that emit the most mercury. Dominion spokesman Dan Genest said the Mount Storm plant is in compliance with all state and federal regulations. “If new regulations come along, we will comply with those,” he said. Genest said of 1,260 pounds mercury released by the plant in 2009, only 309 was released into the air. The rest went into the plant’s fly ash fill. During 2009, West Virginia’s 12 coal-fired power plants released 6,795 pounds of mercury, compared with 138,259 pounds nationwide, the report said. John Benedict, chief of the DEP’s air quality office, said the group looked at releases from air, land and water sources,

rather then just air emissions. Although the federal government’s earlier attempt to curb mercury emissions was vacated, Benedict said progress has been made because of other controls on power plants. “We’re seeing controls being added every year,” he said. Between 1999 and 2009, reported mercury air emissions have fallen from 4,932 pounds to 2,523, he said. Wednesday’s report mirrored one released last year by another environmental group that also listed West Virginia as No. 4 in mercury emissions. “Our health is precious, and mercury from West Virginian power plants puts it at risk,” said Dr. Carlos Lucero, a Beckley physician who chairs the environmental committee for the West Virginia chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. “With the fourth highest level of mercury pollution in the country, West Virginians must act now to clean up power plants and protect our health.” Texas leads the nation in emissions, followed by Pennsylvania and Ohio.

W.Va. House crafts bill to rein in Environmental Protection Agency Sunnyside is hurting hard

@sputnikspankler

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Republican U.S. Rep. David McKinley led West Virginia’s congressional delegation Wednesday in introducing a bill to curb the power of the Environmental Protection Agency. McKinley, fellow Republican Shelley Moore Capito and West Virginia’s sole remaining Democrat in the House, Rep. Nick Rahall, co-sponsored H.R. 457 just before the start of a 10-day recess. Ohio Republicans Bill Johnson and Bob Gibbs also signed on. The bill would prohibit EPA from retroactively vetoing Clean Water Act permits that were properly vetted and ap-

proved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The EPA recently vetoed a permit the corps had long ago issued for Arch Coal’s Spruce No. 1 mountaintop removal mine in Logan County. The agency ruled that destructive and unsustainable mining practices would cause irreparable environmental damage and threaten public health around the nearly 2,300acre site. U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin announced last week that he, too, will introduce legislation to end the EPA’s ability to retroactively veto such permits. The bill is McKinley’s first

piece of legislation. The freshman congressman replaced Democrat Alan Mollohan, who served in the House for nearly three decades until he lost his primary challenge last year. “This isn’t just about the Spruce Mine,” McKinley said, warning the ruling leaves dozens of industries with permits they cannot be certain will stand. “Businesses will not invest in new projects and create new jobs if they know that regulatory agencies can ignore existing permits and arbitrarily pull the rug right out from under them,” he said. “This has to stop.”

Too little, too late for WVU

BRIAN KUPPELWEISER SPORTS WRITER

Nobody asked me, but ... This week, West Virginia sports has been rocked by some disappointing stories. Suspensions, departures and tough losses have occurred, but there are also a few bright spots. As for how each of those stories will play out, nobody asked me, but … zz Former Mountaineer running back Noel Devine had a disappointing senior season that saw him run for 934 yards and seven total touchdowns. Much of Devine’s drop-off in production can be attributed to a foot injury sustained at LSU in September, but an ineffective offensive line can also be blamed. On Saturday, Devine will be taking part in the Senior Bowl along with former teammates Chris Neild and Jock Sanders. Devine is looking to use the game as a stepping stone to improve his stock in the NFL Draft, but his path to the pros may have taken another hit this week. The running back weighed in at just 160 pounds, while being measured at a height of 5-foot-7. In WVU’s media guide, Devine is listed at 180 pounds and 5-foot-8. Devine has dealt with questions about his size in the past. He is vastly undersized for the NFL and will need to add at least 10 to 15 pounds between now and the NFL Combine. The only thing that may offset his size is a good 40-yard dash time or a spectacular performance in the Senior Bowl. zz When Dana Holgorsen was hired as the offensive coordinator and head coachin-waiting in mid-December, many wondered how the lame duck year of Bill Stewart would affect recruiting. With National Signing Day for college football a little over a week away, early indications are that WVU has been successful. Holgorsen’s offensive philosophy has recruited for itself, while the Mountaineers have also reached into some new territory in Texas with three verbal commitments. zz The WVU women’s basketball team suffered its second loss of the season Tuesday night to Georgetown, and some glaring flaws were exposed. The Mountaineers lack discipline at times, as evidenced by their foul trouble. When WVU struggles with foul trouble, it can’t play its physical brand of defense. Unless head coach Mike Carey settles his team in situations such as these, it could be another early exit for the talented squad. zz Foul trouble is not the only issue the women’s basketball team faces. Forward Asya Bussie is clearly in a sophomore slump, while guard Sarah Miles does not look to be 100 percent as she recovers from knee and wrist injuries. It is my belief that Bussie’s problems could be remedied if Carey were to play her alongside fellow forward Ayana Dunning. Dunning and Bussie would form a big physical post presence that would continually pull double teams. This may also ease the pressure on Miles, as shots will begin to open up for her as well as guard Liz Repella. zz With 12 games remaining in its season, the WVU men’s basketball team is looking at a daunting stretch of games. Nine of the team’s remaining games come against teams that are currently ranked in the top 25. With leading scorer Casey Mitchell suspended indefinitely and WVU’s bench depth at just eight players, it is possible that the Mountaineers could miss the NCAA Tournament just one year after a Final Four appearance. In order to make the tournament, forwards Kevin Jones and John Flowers will have an even bigger scoring onus. It will be a tough journey, but Huggins may finally be ridding his team of the individuals who have been rotten apples throughout the season. brian.kuppelweiser@mail.wvu.edu

Jarmal Reid still weighing options BY MICHAEL CARVELLI SPORTS writer

Standing at 6-foot-7, Columbia High School (Ga.) junior Jarmal Reid might not look like your prototypical low-post presence. But, in last weekend’s Primetime Shootout, he showed the potential to be just that at the next level. Given the task of handling DaJuan Coleman, the secondbest center in the 2012 recruiting class, for a good portion of the game, Reid stepped up in a big way, as Coleman was only able to score eight points in a 15-point Columbia victory. Reid, the No. 52 player in the ESPNU Super 60 for the 2012 class, has led his team to a 16-2 overall record, including two wins in the tournament last week. And for him, right now, it’s about making sure his team plays as well as possible.

“I’m just trying to help my team get wins and get better,” Reid said. “It’s like a job. It’s something you’ve got to come out and do and be prepared for every day.” Right now, even though he’s focused on the season at hand, Reid’s also looking forward to something else: getting the recruitment process over with. “You see a lot of faces in this short length of time, and, after a while, it can get tiring,” Reid said. “In the beginning it’s fun, but making that final decision is kind of hard, because you’ve got to throw out all those teams except for one. “All you can do is hope that it’s the right one and it’s the right fit for you.” While he said his recruitment is still wide open, he mentioned five teams that have separated themselves

Univ. needs to react sooner to bad weather Snow hammered down on the city of Morgantown relentlessly Wednesday. For some cities, snow doesn’t always equal disaster, but here, the first sight of snow throws people into a state of alarm for two reasons: the roads, and the fact that West Virginia University rarely closes. Any time snow accumulates in excess of 1 or 2 inches, the hills become slippery and dangerous, accidents occur all over town, and traffic backs up for hours. In the midst of this confusion, people still have to navi-

gate their ways to campus for work and school, even though getting there can be very dangerous. A great deal of the blame is thrown on the city and the county for not keeping the roads clearer, but the majority of people on the roads in Morgantown are students, faculty and staff of the University. If WVU would close during bad weather, hundreds, maybe thousands, of cars would probably not be on the roads. Canceling classes at 4 p.m. is simply too late when many students had already made

the trip to campus, and many were left with no buses or PRT to take them back home. When conversations about the upkeep and treatment of the roads occur, the finger is always pointed toward the people who are out trying to clean things up so we can travel safely. However, if people weren’t being mandated to attend school and work in bad conditions, it would be much easier for the county to clear and treat the roads. Foreman for the West Virginia Division of Highways Ron

Cumpston said they always advise people to stay off the roads unless it is an emergency. “There is so much traffic and so many accidents, we can’t get to the trouble spots to treat. Because of the time, the amount of snow and traffic, we will be working around the clock. So give us a chance to clean it up,” Cumpston said. “We treated the high elevation areas early this morning and made our way to the primary roads” Cumpston said. This should make us all realize that between nature, the crazy amounts of traffic and the

small amount of trucks, things would be better if the University would care a little more about the safety of its students and employees and cancel school at the first signs of terrible weather. As students, there is little we can do to make this issue any better. We happen to live in a mountainous place that sometimes struggles to keep the roads clear. We attend a University that, for some reason, has an aversion to closing school even in the worst conditions. Since the University only

cancels school once every 20 blizzards, students should take their safety into their own hands and stay off the roads when the weather is bad. For many, this means grades could suffer. This is unfortunate considering we are attending this University to, in fact, learn. Between the half plowed streets and certain unwavering University standards, it is safer and wiser to push your syllabus to the side and use your better judgment, even if the University isn’t. daperspectives@mail.wvu.edu

WVU’s response to the weather is flawed in every way david ryan a&E editor

Each and every morning, without fail, I check the weather. It used to be that my only concern was catching a few episodes of various cartoons. But now, as a responsible 25-year-old adult (second degree, don’t judge), I find myself concerned with the weather. As early as Monday night, I began to notice a deluge of snow heading our way. The National Weather Service had predicted as much as 2 to 5 inches of snow, and the Weather Channel had predicted 1 to 3. I thought about the classes I had, if I had used up any excused absences so far and whether or not I could safely miss class without affecting my grade. During the first week of classes, I was forced to miss one session of my Wednesday class due to inclement weather. The roads were bad. My parking lot was bad. The chances of getting to class without playing pinball with my car and a few others was minimal. Today, at 10 a.m., I noticed the snow began to fall. There was no word that West Virginia University had any intention of closing. After all, WVU has a reputation of being unbelievably stubborn about its belief that everyone can get to class safely – even as students slip and slide their way down University Avenue. Despite having two more absences to play with, I decided to risk everything in case I genuinely needed to miss, be it because of medical illness or an even worse storm. It didn’t take long, however, to see how bad of an idea that

was. The roads were slushy, snow-covered messes. Traffic was moving at a snail’s pace. Downtown, the sight looked no better. The sidewalks were untreated. Students were slipping as they attempted to get downtown. After arriving 10 minutes late to class, I began to wonder if it was really worth it. Throughout class I found myself watching the snow. I felt bad for anyone walking to and from class. The University’s stance is that 15,000 to 20,000 students have walkable access to classes and should be fine. That probably wasn’t of any comfort to students walking down from Stalnaker and Dadisman, or even from Summit and Honors Hall. I kept thinking of students slipping – not to mention any staff or faculty hours earlier. To their credit, WVU crews were out fighting the beast. The snow was coming down quickly and heavily, undoing any work they had managed to achieve. But the sidewalks were unusable. Students shuffled their best, trying to soldier on in the wintry tundra. After making a brave journey around noon to Evansdale, minivans skidded, pedestrians dodged sliding cars, and reports of buses being rear-ended made their way to Twitter. Students, staff and faculty were flooding Twitter with reports about their icy journeys. I don’t know if these appeared on WVU’s amazing new high-tech displays in the Mountainlair, but even those searching “WVU” could see them. Several users reported icy journeys, shut down shuttle services from apartment complexes, road closures and accidents. Yet, no word came until 2:32 p.m., and only classes after 4 p.m. would be spared the onslaught. Even then, WVU’s announcement only came after

Snow piles up on stairs in front of the Mountainlair during a heavy winter storm Wednesday afternoon. Morgantown emergency officials urged all drivers off the roads. WVU’s decision to dismiss classes at 4 p.m. was too little, too late. By canceling classes at the exact moment emergency officials were telling motorists to stay off the roads, it opened a floodgate of the city’s biggest employer hitting the roads at once. It did nothing for the majority of students whose classes started earlier in the day when the snow was building up. It’s alarming to think this storm caught the University off guard. WVU apparently coordinates its closure efforts with advice from weather reports, local emergency officials and internal authorities. How it only managed to come to the conclusion that late in the afternoon is beyond me. The University’s attitude

that we are adults is right. We are. We know when to miss classes, we know when to use our excused absences. We know when it’s right for us to skip a Shakespeare class when there are untreated sidewalks. We shouldn’t, however, be forced to continually underestimate the readiness of a major institution. It shouldn’t come to the idea that the University’s ability to miss weather patterns or look outside the window. If the University’s strained resources combatting the downpour are being defeated, it should be time to call it quits. This was visible as early as 11 a.m., three hours before classes were canceled. There are times when students want a quarter of an inch of snow to cause cancellations week-round. But today was an exception. Students, staff and faculty

Government’s dysfunction most apparent in public education keith yost The Tech, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Uwire

As the U.S. Congress (belatedly) hammers out this year’s federal budget, our politicians and pundits have focused their attention on three questions. First, how important are the activities that government performs relative to the private enterprise that it supplants? Second, how redistributionary should our system of taxes and spending be, both in terms of how much we take from the rich to give to the poor, as well as how much we take from future generations to give to the present? And, finally, which presents the greater risk: a failure to provide Keynesian stimulus today, or a potential debt crisis tomorrow? These are crucial questions, and I don’t mean to take

DA

away from their importance, but there is a sort of futility to them. At their heart, these questions frame the debate as one of making a choice among a frontier of possibilities, as one of making trade-offs between risks, costs, and benefits in which each new cut or tax produces winners and losers, but seemingly no reform could make us all better off. For some programs, such as Social Security, this zerosum framing may well ring true (and it is for that reason why fixing our entitlements programs has been so notoriously difficult). But applying this paradigm to discretionary spending seems premature. Before we retreat to our partisan parapets and pretend (as the left does) that all government spending is sacrosanct or imagine (as the right does) that huge pools of unadulterated waste exist in our system, it is worth investigating: can we expand the frontier of pos-

sibilities? Are so-called “Pareto” improvements possible? And why is our government so inefficient at supplying the services that we as a society want? Nowhere is the government’s dysfunction more apparent than in public education. Per pupil, adjusted for purchasing power parity, Poland has spent less than a third of what the U.S. has in secondary education, and yet has outperformed the U.S. in nearly every secondary education test in the past decade. They’re not alone; almost every Eastern European country can make the same claim. Can this really be the result of cultural differences or some twisted sort of American exceptionalism? Are Slovak students really smarter, Polish children more diligent, or Hungarians better at parenting than we are? Surely not. The more likely explanation is that, contrary to other educational systems, we fail to

fire bad teachers or use merit pay to attract and retain good ones. A mounting body of evidence (Gordon, Kane, and Staiger 2006; Hanushek 2009; Goldhaber and Hansen 2010) indicates that if public schools merely used a teacher’s performance during their first three years to weed out the lowest performing teachers before they were granted tenure, this effect alone would be larger than several other proposals (longer school days, longer school years, smaller class sizes) combined, and at a fraction of the cost. But instead of firing bad teachers and paying good teachers more, we continue to demand that our teachers earn master’s degrees and earn certifications despite virtually no evidence that these requirements have any significant effect on quality of education. It is easy to blame teachers unions for the poor human resources policies in our schools, and indeed, unions

are a large part of the reason why education reform often fails to make headway. But the failure is not limited to unionized work forces. Across all of our governmental programs, the personnel management is the same: government workers get their jobs by earning the diplomas or certificates that we pretend separate the productive workers from the unproductive, and then are promoted almost solely on the basis of how many years they fill a chair, not how well they do their jobs. It doesn’t matter if the workers belong to a public service employees union or not: our military has been bleeding away its finest officers for years. If you ask the departing officers why they’re leaving, they consistently blame the sclerotic military bureaucracy that mints generals on the basis of seniority, assigns personnel in a manner that is blind to skill sets and preferences, and encourages conformity over

entrepreneurship. The free market often does no better: as most who have worked in corporate bureaucracy can attest to, the private sector has the potential to be just as inefficient as any public administration. Today’s Great Recession ended the jobs of roughly one in ten workers in the private sector while output hardly budged at all. The implication is that before the crisis, one in ten workers sat in their cubicles watching YouTube all day, and it was only the threat of collapse that pushed companies to release their deadweight. Still, unlike government offices, if businesses persistently fail to fire their worst and reward their best, they’ll go bankrupt and be replaced by those with better workforce management. There is no invisible hand to hold the Department of Education’s feet to the fire: we must rely on our representatives to do that task for us.

WVU travels to Penn State By Derek Denneny Sports Writer

The No. 7 West Virginia track and field team will return to action this weekend when it travels to State College, Pa., on Saturday to compete in the Penn State National Invitational. The PSU Invitational will showcase some of the nation’s best programs, including No. 4 Clemson, No. 5 Tennessee and No. 15 Central Florida. “The meets are starting to become higher in intensity as we get closer to the major championships,” said West Virginia head coach Sean Cleary.

“A few of the distance girls are starting to run the events that they have been preparing for all season. We are expecting to take a smaller group this weekend and emerge with a few more Big East qualifiers.” The Mountaineers have run very well this season, but Cleary said this is time to take a step forward and avoid becoming cocky. “Being ranked seventh is quite an honor,” he said. “We have a few girls that need to get over a few hiccups before we are truly deserving of this ranking to be honest. “We need not only a few of our stars to emerge but collec-

tively, the entire team needs to make one more step forward. Should we do this, we will be quite competitive.” Cleary said he is excited for the event, because it well help him gauge where his team stacks up with the country’s elite programs. “It will begin to create a clearer picture of who we are as a team and where we see ourselves going,” he said. “Higher pressure is a great arena to find out what we are made of.” The 50-team event will start at 9 a.m. Saturday and conclude Sunday. derek.denneny@mail.wvu.edu

Mountaineers face JMU, Liberty by derek denneny sports writer

The West Virginia tennis team (1-2, 0-1 Big East) will look to bounce back this weekend as it travels to White Sulfur Springs, W.Va., to take on James Madison and Liberty at The Greenbrier. “I don’t really think our first match was an accurate reflection on the team,” said firstyear head coach Tina Samara. “Hopefully we will learn from these mistakes as we move forward.” The Mountaineers will take

on the Dukes on Saturday. This will be JMU’s first match since it ended its fall season in October. The Dukes closed out the 2010 season with a 9-8 record. WVU’s match with Liberty will be the second match of the season for the Flames, who take on Appalachian Stateon Saturday. Liberty finished 2010 with a 5-16 record, including a 1-6 record in the Big South Conference. “We will use (last) weekend to gauge where we are as a team,” Samara said.

“We will work hard into the weekend,now that we know what our weaknesses are.” The Mountaineers started last weekend 0-2 but were able to save their weekend with a 4-0 sweep of Morehead State. West Virginia will square off against JMU at 2 p.m. Saturday before facing Liberty at 9 a.m. Sunday. “We’re going to have to play better this weekend,” Samara said. “We know what we need to improve, and I’m confident we will do that.” derek.denneny@mail.wvu.edu

13 Iowa players have muscle disorder IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa confirmed Wednesday that 13 football players were hospitalized this week with an unusual muscle disorder following grueling offseason workouts. The players have rhabdomyolysis, a stress-induced syndrome that can damage cells and cause kidney failure in severe cases, school spokesman Tom Moore said at a news conference two days after the players were hospitalized in a Iowa City. The school has said the players, whom they would not identify, were “in safe and stable condition” and responding well to treatment. Moore said the cause of the disorder has not yet been determined. University of Iowa physician John Stokes said the common denominator is they had all participated in strenuous exercise, which commonly brings on the disorder in otherwise healthy young people. Coach Kirk Ferentz and the team doctor, Ned Amendola, were not at the news conference. The university said Ferentz was out of town on a recruiting trip but was aware of the situation, while an aide to Amendola said he was traveling in Costa Rica on business. Chris Doyle, the team’s strength and conditioning coach who has worked under Ferentz all 12 years of his tenure, did not immediately return phone and e-mail messages. He and other strength coaches were not made available to reporters. Several Iowa players wrote on their Facebook pages that the workouts involved intense weightlifting. Freshman linebacker Jim Poggi wrote Saturday that he had done 100

REID

Continued from page 3 from the rest of the field. West Virginia was one of them, along with Oklahoma, Georgia, Alabama and Florida. Reid mentioned he likes the way the Mountaineers play and coach Bob Huggins’ intense style of coaching. “I got to watch practice when we came up here last year, and he would get into his players, and I think that’s what I need,” Reid said. “That person who can push me, and I think he’ll help me with that so I can get better.” And the opportunity to get to play in the Big East Conferecne, one of the nation’s premier conferences, would be an added bonus for him, as well. “Playing in the Big East would be fun and very exciting,” Reid said. “There’s a lot of competition, so every night you can’t slack up, because you

squats and pushed a sled 100 yards. He said he was having trouble walking. His uncle, Bo Poggi, said his nephew remained hospitalized Wednesday and he had not heard an official explanation of the illness. “All of us are extremely concerned,” Poggi said. “We’re hoping for the best and this is a temporary situation and he’ll make a full recovery. And then we’ll get to the next steps on how this happened, why it happened.” Another player, freshman defensive lineman Carl Davis of Detroit, wrote Sunday that he couldn’t walk or feel his arms after performing 100 squats and 100 bench presses, and had “a whole weekend of soreness.” A third, freshman defensive back Tanner Miller of Kalona, Iowa, wrote on Tuesday that he had a “night in the hospital … couldn’t be a worse day.” Associate athletics director Fred Mims said school officials would take steps to “ensure it doesn’t happen again.” Mims, who is in charge of the department’s compliance with NCAA rules, said the matter did not need to be reported since the workouts were allowed and routine. “We have an excellent medical staff and training staff who will do due diligence to look at what did transpire and make sure we can avoid this in the future,” he said. “I’m quite sure they’ll have safeguards in place to make sure people aren’t harmed.” He said the case is a “good lesson” for why university officials should ask players about how they are feeling after strenuous workouts. He said Iowa will also try to avoid problems after players return from school breaks and might not have kept

up with fitness routines by making sure expectations are clear.

could get beat by anybody.” In the first game of the Primetime Shootout, Reid put on one of the best displays of the day, scoring 15 points and earning MVP honors for the game in Columbia’s 55-40 win over Jamesville-Dewitt (N.Y.). Even though he’s one of the bigger players on the court, the Eagles’ star forward showed versatility in the win, getting those 15 points down low and out on the perimeter. It’s that mix of strength and ability to shoot from the outside that Reid thinks is his strength. But, he also acknowledged that there’s still a lot of work that can be done before he’s really where he needs to be as a player. “I need to work on my decision-making with the basketball – picking and choosing when to take a shot – stuff like that,” Reid said. “And defense is what wins championships, so you can always get better with that.”

While some might think choosing a school would be easy, Reid isn’t going to take this decision lightly. He plans to stay focused on finishing this season and helping his team as much as possible on its road to having a great season. He will more than likely make his decision during the AAU season this summer. He realizes that even though playing basketball will be like a job at the collegiate level, the sport might actually be one of the smaller factors when it comes to picking his future destination. “Whatever school I pick, I won’t be there just for basketball,” Reid said. “I’ll be there for personal reasons, for the education and to find a place where I could possibly live in the future. “That’s probably the most important thing for me in picking a school.”

Rodgers calls Cutler criticisms “disrespectful” GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Even as he prepares to play in the Super Bowl, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers(notes) is aware that Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler(notes) is having his toughness questioned this week. And Rodgers says the criticism of Cutler is “very inappropriate” and “disrespectful.” Cutler was criticized by current and former players, fans and media members after leaving Sunday’s NFC championship game with a knee injury. Rodgers, who is friends with Cutler, applauded Bears players for sticking up for their teammate. Rodgers was roughed up himself in Sunday’s victory over the Bears, taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Julius Peppers(notes). Rodgers shot down speculation that he sustained another concussion and credited his helmet for potentially preventing another significant head injury. Rodgers switched helmets after sustaining two concussions earlier this season. Marshall rehires former strength & conditioning coach HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Marshall has rehired a former strength and conditioning coach. Football coach Doc Holliday announced the hiring of Scott Bennett on Wednesday. Bennett held similar positions at Southern Miss since 2007 and at Wyoming from 1998 to 2007. He was Marshall’s head strength coach from 1996 to 1998.

Kilicli, Thoroughman play more significant minutes BY TONY DOBIES SPORTS EDITOR

Without former West Virginia forward Dan Jennings in the lineup Wednesday night against Louisville, the Mountaineers lost needed depth against the Cardinals. Jennings, who left the team’s bench during last Sunday’s game against South Florida and quit the team shortly after, hadn’t been a key component to WVU’s success this season. But, he had fouls to give. Now, it’s up to forwards Deniz Kilicli and Cam Thoroughman to find a way to give WVU a solid inside presence this season. Against Louisville Wednesday, neither Thoroughman nor Kilicli made a significant impact on the scoreboard, but the two filled the lane solidly for the Mountaineers. They combined for four points and six rebounds in the 55-54 loss. After the 56-46 victory over South Florida last Sunday, Kilicli said he would rather come off the bench the rest of the season. That’s what he did against the Cardinals. “I get easy fouls, because it’s like they’re looking at me for some reason,” Kilicli said. “I want to come off the bench so I can see what’s going on and get everything so I can go in prepared.” That would mean he would be replaced in the starting lineup by either Thoroughman – at 6-foot-7 – or Jennings.

HOROSCOPES BY JACQUELINE BIGAR BORN TODAY This year, keep your eye on the big picture. Your professional or civic role will be more important than in the past. Don’t deceive yourself; do a reality check. The more realistic you are, the less disappointment you will experience. Your instincts serve you well when dealing with those in power. If you are single, you could meet someone who is very interesting but not necessarily available. Take your time. You will want to get to know him or her before even thinking about a relationship. If you are attached, a vacation as a couple enhances your relationship. SCORPIO pushes you into the limelight. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) HHHHH A partner counts on your sense of direction. It seems no one will let you veer off track. Try to explain that sometimes you need to spin a tale or try out different ways to proceed in your head. That process helps you conceive even tighter plans. Tonight: Chat over dinner. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) HHHHH Others want to hear more of what you think. A brainstorming session begins when you walk through the door. Someone you need to respect seems off or confused. Say little, and understand what is happening. Tonight: Go with a friend’s spontaneity. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) HHH You must stay focused if you are to achieve what you want. A key person has a strong opinion. You must listen, and you might need to incorporate this person’s thinking. A boss or parent does the unex-

pected, delighting you in some way. Tonight: Don’t push. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) HHHHH Others seem to be an endless source of information. You might find yourself locked in, but not necessarily against your will. One person intrigues you with different opinions. You might wonder which way is the best path. Tonight: Opt for the unique. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) HHH You might want to stay home, but you might need to go out. Accomplishing a project could be an even bigger priority than kicking back. Stop the interference of others. A friend or loved one demonstrates once more his or her expertise in distraction. Tonight: Finally, time to do your thing. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) HHHH Rethink a conversation. You might want to approach this person again. You have gained a deeper understanding, and with a bit of creativity, you might be able to encourage a meeting of the minds. Confusion emanates like a fog at the ocean. Verify as much as possible. Tonight: Join a friend. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) HHH Realize the cost of putting someone on a pedestal and/or continuing with a creative venture. You might be focused on one thing and only that. Pull back and gain a new perspective. You might surprise yourself with what you decide to do. Tonight: Treat yourself. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) HHHH Discipline your mind to stay present in the moment. It might be tempting to return

to a personal problem, at least mentally. There is nothing you can do until later. You might see events differently by then. Tonight: Respond to another person’s spontaneity in the same vein. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) HHH Deal with your feelings. Your perspective might not be the same in a few days. Avoid taking statements personally. Don’t take on another’s “stuff” and upset yourself. Work on being less reactive. Tonight: Follow through on a wild idea. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) HHHHH Your communication skills help attract what you want. A meeting provides an excellent opportunity to gain supporters. Be aware of the cost of manifesting. When you decide that everything is just as you like it, get ready for a little surprise! Tonight: Where you want to be. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) HHH Making a point could be difficult. Whether it is your word choice, expression and/or contradictory action, others cannot hear you. Ask for feedback from several trusted individuals. You could be taken aback by what they say. Tonight: Burning the candle at both ends. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) HHHH Others encourage you to take a step or do something that makes you uncomfortable. Truth be told, you feel uncomfortable no matter what you do. Ask yourself and others what would be the best possible end result, then determine the route. Tonight: Put on a favorite piece of music. BORN TODAY Drummer Nick Mason (1944), author Lewis Carroll (1832), composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756)

THE SHOW MUST GO ON

CHELSI BAKER/THE DAILY ATHENAEUM

Disturbed plays at the Coliseum as a part of the Music as a Weapon Tour Wednesday.

WVU fans brave the winter weather for ‘Music as a Weapon’ tour by jake potts A&E writer

Despite West Virginia University canceling classes and emergency officials cautioning residents to stay off the roads, the Music as a Weapon Tour couldn’t be silenced. Rock fans from all over the state braved the weather to enjoy the tour’s stop in Morgantown. Fairmont resident Lori Ryan drove through the snow and sleet for the show. “I’m definitely excited for Korn’s performance. They have a way of being heavy but not too heavy,” Ryan said. “The lineup is pretty solid for the night.” The two main acts – Disturbed and Korn – were opened for by bands In This Moment and Sevendust. In This Moment began the show, taking the stage with a female lead vocalist. They

opened their performance to an eager audience with their hit “Just Drive.” Although the band was on the roster for performances, some of the audience members, including freshman journalism major Mason Price, hadn’t heard of them and were surprised by their performance. “I was wondering on how In This Moment would do. I hadn’t really heard of them before this, but they definitely got the crowd going,” Price said. “Seeing a girl vocalist take the stage and rock it that hard is always crazy.” During the In This Moment’s performance, the band took a moment to relate to the West Virginia audience members. For an introduction of the song, the group began singing “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” which got the entire audience involved. Following In This Moment’s

performance, Sevendust from Atlanta took the stage. Lajon Witherspoon, the vocalist for the group, commented on the turnout for the evening. “It’s insane how crazy this weather is, and this many people still came out to see this show,” Witherspoon said. Sevendust’s style was well received by the audience, and its performance prepared the crowd even more for the next act: Disturbed. The band opened with instrumental “Remnants,” also performing “Prayer,” “Liberate” and “Stupify.” After thrilling the crowds,

Korn took the stage, performing “Blind,” “Here to Stay” and “Pop A Pill” and “Freak on a Leash.” F re s h m a n Occupational Therapy major Kevin Sloan was excited for Korn’s performance. “I love the style of music they play. It’s heavy, and they definitely know how to work a crowd,” Sloan said. “Their style is unique as far as rock goes, and this show is going to be great.” “I’ve seen Korn play live before, and they definitely have an individual performance style,” Price said. Those unable to attend the show will be given refunds at their original point of purchase, according to WVU Arts and Entertainment. Tickets purchased with online vendor Ticketmaster must be returned to Ticketmaster. Chelsi Baker/THE DAILY ATHENAEUM

ASSOC. A&E EDITOR

MEGAN PUGLISI A&E WRITER

Fashion and style are two vastly different terms that need to be incorporated into every aspiring college professional’s lifestyle and personality. I like to describe fashion as the art that is displayed on the catwalk and sprawled across the covers of elite magazines by brilliant designers and models. Style is the way a person cultivates the fashion into a look of their own, which will help set the bar when it comes time for interviewing and entering the professional field. But more important than recognizing the differences between fashion and style is the understanding of selfconfidence that needs to be obtained if you ever want to be successful and truly happy with who you are. Self-confidence should not thrive from the threads on your back, the fancy kicks on your feet or the layers of makeup that most females apply daily. Who ever said “the best things in life are free” was correct, because self-confidence is the absolute best accessory to strut your stuff in without having to pay a single penny for it. Working to improve the betterment of yourself from the inside out will lead to a longer life of happiness with whatever your future endeavors entail. Once you encompass as much self-confidence that is obtainable, you will be

Alternative rock band Cage the Elephant stole listeners’ attention with its sinister sound on recent mainstream hit “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked.” The group proves the extent of its raw sound on its album “Thank You Happy Birthday” released Jan. 11. The CD encompasses what the band really is: grimy, gritty and, most importantly, experimental. The band combines sharp, energetic lyrics, ever-changing instrumentals and lead singer Matthew Shultz’s quivering but powerful vocals. Standout track “Shake Me Down” begins with mellow tones, introducing Shultz’s one-of-a-kind strained voice and leading into an all-out hardcore chorus with intense drums and bass. The group’s tendency to tell a story with its instrumentals is something that draws you in and keeps listeners interested

from beginning to end: Sampling a variety of talents, from acoustic to screamo. Tracks like “Indy Kidz” delve a little too far into the band’s hard metal influences to make it mainstream, which may be one of the band’s only hindrances when it comes to acquiring a broad fan base. “Flow” is a catchy track channeling calm, indie folk influences and makes listeners take a moment and ask themselves, “Wait, am I still listening to Cage the Elephant?” “Right Before My Eyes” also highlights the album, finding a perfect balance between mellow and energetic, combining

the band’s talents to create a simple, good song. However, tracks like “Around My Head” serve to remind us that the band’s real signature sound is that punk-garage band noise only a few can successfully pull off without sounding like a mess. The band’s ability to sample a wide range of genres and combine them to make a unique and eccentric sound all its own is at the heart of the group’s talent.
