For the first time in its 25-year history, ESPN College GameDay will be coming to Morgantown for a West Virginia football game this weekend. The No. 16 Mountaineers will host No. 2 LSU Saturday at 8 p.m. at Milan Puskar Stadium. It will be nationally televised in primetime on ABC. “This is a tremendous opportunity. It will give us great national exposure and it’s a chance

for the University to be in the national spotlight on a very popular weekly college football show,” said West Virginia Sports Marketing Director Matt Wells. “The impact of that is immeasurable. There’s a lot of benefit to having GameDay in Morgantown.” College GameDay is ESPN’s weekly show that previews all of the big college football games and matchups from across the country. It’s hosted by Chris Fowler and includes analysts like Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, Lee Corso, Erin Andrews

and David Pollack. The show begins every Saturday during college football season at 9 a.m. on ESPNU and then continues from 10 a.m. until noon on ESPN. “This is a big deal,” Wells said. “This shows that the national perception of WVU is strong. It shows the respect that the networks have for our team and our fanbase.” The University knew at the beginning of the year that this game could be in contention to have the show come to Mor-

gantown for the LSU game, but there was no official announcement made about it until Sunday morning. “(ESPN) sends a letter to several schools before the season starts saying we were in the pool of candidates (for GameDay). That was the first contact,” Wells said. “As the season progressed and both teams became ranked, additional contacts were made.” Now that it has been made official that College GameDay will

The National Society of Collegiate Scholars recognized 150 West Virginia University freshmen and sophomores for academic excellence at an induction ceremony Sunday in the Mountainlair. NSCS is a non-profit organization that recognizes more than 800,000 high-achieving students nationally in areas of service, scholarship and leadership. The organization offers a variety of academic and philanthropic opportunities to its members, said Katlin Stinespring, vice president of public relations and member recruitment for NSCS. “There are a lot of opportunities for new inductees to learn and grow,” Stinespring said. The organization admits students in the top 20 percent of their class with a minimum of a 3.4 GPA. But, Stinespring said the organization focuses

University Police are teaming up with WELL WVU to provide free self-defense classes to West Virginia University students. The Personal Response Options and Tactically Effective Counter Techniques (PROTECT) program is offered exclusively to female students and is designed to prevent sexual assault. The first session of the course was held Sunday at the WVU Rec Center. Classes last about four hours and teach fundamental skills in self-defense and hand-to-hand combat, said Bartley Mayhorn, senior patrolman for University Police and instructor of PROTECT. “I’ve instructed self-defense classes in the past as well. This is a very good program,” Mayhorn said. Mayhorn said the class is dedicated to teaching young women how to defend themselves if they’re ever alone and attacked. Ashley Shimer, a first-year public history graduate student, said she’s been looking forward to taking a course like this for a while. The courses help young women feel more confident and safe when they’re traveling alone, Shimer said.

Strong quake hits India GAUHATI, India (AP) — A strong earthquake shook northeastern India and Nepal on Sunday night, killing at least 16 people, damaging buildings and sending lawmakers in Nepal’s capital running into the streets. The quake, with a preliminary magnitude of 6.9, struck at 6:10 p.m. local time and was felt across northern and eastern India, including in the capital of New Delhi. It triggered at least two aftershocks of magnitude 6.1 and 5.3, Indian seismology official R.S. Dattatreyan said. He warned more aftershocks were possible. At least five people in India’s Sikkim state were killed and more than 50 were injured, according to the state’s top official, Chief Secretary Karma Gyatso. The north Indian state of West Bengal reported four deaths, and Bihar state reported two. Nepal’s government said five people died and dozens were hurt there, including two men and a child who were killed when a brick wall toppled outside the British Embassy in Nepal’s capital, Katmandu. The full extent of damage was not immediately known because the region is sparsely populated with many people living in remote areas now cut

TV stations reported buildings buckled, sidewalks cracked and two major roads collapsed in Sikkim’s state capital of Gangtok, 42 miles (68 kilometers) southeast of the quake’s epicenter near the border with Nepal. The IndoTibetan Border Police said two of its buildings had collapsed in Gangtok. Small army columns fanned out across the city of some 50,000 overnight to search for anyone pinned under fallen debris. “We have sounded a high alert. Police are on the streets in Gangtok and other major towns,” he said. Electricity and some phone

service was interrupted in the area. Power lines snapped in the West Bengal cities of Darjeeling and Kalimpong, which “are now in total darkness,” state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, according to Press Trust of India. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh offered to send troops to help, and summoned the National Disaster Management Authority for an emergency meeting. The air force sent five planes to help with rescue efforts. The region has been hit by major earthquakes in the past, including in 1950 and 1897. In neighboring Nepal and Bangladesh, the quake Sunday night sent residents rushing out of their homes, offices and shopping centers.

Student-Athlete Academics Director Paul Downey was named the NSCS 2011 Distinguished Honorary Member. Students are invited to join NSCS during the spring semester of their freshman or sophomore year and participate in an application process before receiving a formal request to join the organization in the fall. The NSCS awards more than $250,000 in scholarships annually and offers induction recognition awards, merit awards and study-abroad opportunities. The organization also offers ScholarJobs, a job tool that allows users to create and up-

load a resume into an NSCSexclusive job search system. “NSCS can lead to many opportunities that would otherwise not be possible, such as elite graduate school admissions, study abroad programs and major-market internships,” said Emily Viglianco, vice president and induction coordinator of NSCS. “The students can expect to meet other scholars who share the same interests and dedication to learning, as well as gain skills to become leaders in their schools and community,” Viglianco said.

Diplomats scramble ahead of Palestinian United Nations bid NEW YORK (AP) — With a tense week ahead for the future of the Middle East, the United States and Europe scrambled Sunday for a strategy that would help avoid a jarring showdown over whether to admit an independent Palestine as a new United Nations member. Instead, they sought to guide Israel and the Palestinians back into the tough bargaining on a long-sought peace agreement. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton discussed the current trajectory in New York, in which the Palestinian plan to gain statehood and membership at the U.N. would run headfirst into an American veto in the Security Council, and possible Israeli recriminations. Yet there was no apparent and immediate solution to the many problems that have hindered Mideast peace efforts for months. Diplomats were working feverishly as part of an increasingly desperate effort to guide the two parties back into direct negotiations, but were

tight-lipped on whether the slim chances for a breakthrough were improving. “We are meeting to talk about the way forward,” Clinton said as she shook hands with Ashton in a New York hotel. She declined to say if mediators were making progress. The Palestinians are frustrated by their inability to win from Israel concessions such as a freeze on settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. And with violence out of the question and bilateral talks with Israel failing, they see the U.N. route as the only viable route for progress in the short term. To address the Palestinian concerns, Western officials were discussing the possibility of including some timeframes, however vague, in any statement put out by the Mideast peace mediators – the U.S., EU, U.N. and Russia – known as the Quartet, officials said. These would focus on the restart of Israeli-Palestinian talks and signs of tangible progress. Envoys from all four gath-

ered Sunday in New York and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon met with Quartet envoy Tony Blair. A further meeting of Quartet officials was planned for Monday, officials said, with Ashton possibly presenting some ideas to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on the same day. The timeframes wouldn’t be deadlines, as such, but would seem to address the Palestinian desire to see quick action. The offer would come with an unchanged message that Washington would veto a Palestinian bid at the Security Council for U.N. recognition and membership, but at the very least it would represent a dignity-saving compromise for Abbas’ U.S.backed government. The alternative concern is that an embarrassment for his government would embolden Hamas, which the U.S. and Israel consider a terrorist organization and which would be far less eager to negotiate a twostate settlement with the Jewish nation.


Continued from page 1 be in Morgantown this weekend, the next step is finding out where the set will be located. That’s a decision that Wells said should be figured out within the next few days. “We will share our thoughts and opinions on where it should be,” he said. “When they get to town, they will survey the sights. It’s too early to tell where it will be, though. “We just have to wait until they get here and see what they’re thinking.” ESPN sent College GameDay to Morgantown for the WVU men’s basketball game against Louisville in 2009. Wells said WVU is using that past experience in figuring out how it is going to handle fan behavior this weekend. “We want to appeal to our fans’ common sense and I think our fans are smart and very passionate and realize that this is a tremendous opportunity and we don’t want anything that could be seen as negative to happen,” Wells said. “This is a situation where our fans will step up and represent themselves and the University very well.” And WVU fans understand just how much representing the school in a positive way can help improve the image of the University, especially on a stage as big as College GameDay. “WVU is going to be in the national spotlight this weekend and it’s a great opportunity for us to shine both on the football field and as fans and there’s so much benefit we can gain from it,” said Mountaineer Maniacs Executive Director Steve Staffileno. “But all it takes is for a couple people to do something inappropriate or out of line to completely ruin that benefit and give us a negative image. “We need everyone to step up and do everything they can to give us a good showing.”

Initial report on deadly W.Va. crash due in six days MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — The pilot of a post-World War II plane that crashed during an air show in West Virginia was a decorated Air Force pilot and instructor, a successful businessman and a passionate pilot who stressed safety first and foremost, friends and family said Sunday. Federal aviation officials investigating the crash that killed John “Jack” Mangan of Concord, N.C., said they expect to have a preliminary finding within days into the cause of the crash Saturday during a show by the T-28 Warbird Aerobatic Formation Demonstration Team. Mangan, 54, was killed when his T-28 crashed and burst into flames before hundreds of stunned spectators at the Martinsburg air show. He had flown with the demonstration team for five years. A National Transportation Safety Board investigator was on the scene Sunday and was expected to conduct a briefing later in the day. The investigator did not immediately return messages left by The Associated Press. A preliminary accident report was expected within 3-5 working days, said Jim Peters, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA was assisting the NTSB by checking Mangan’s pilot records, medical certification

and any documents related to the T-28. The Journal of Martinsburg reported the aircraft lost control during a six-plane stunt formation and then crashed on a runway near hangers at the airfield. No one was injured when the aircraft wobbled and crashed, authorities said. Many in the crowd embraced each other and wept after seeing the aircraft appear to disintegrate in a fireball.

The guard unit that sponsored the air show urged spectators who witnessed the deadly crash to seek support if they were “traumatically affected” by what they saw. “We understand that you are mourning with us,” Col. Roger L. Nye, commander of the 167 Airlift Wing, said in a statement. “In this difficult time we all need to take care of each other.” Unit leadership has con-

tacted area schools to ensure that children who witnessed the crash have access to grief counseling when they return to classes on Monday. Mangan, a retired Air Force officer who graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy, left a wife, Kathy, and two other children. He was the president of RMG, a Kingsport, Tenn., company with a chain of more than 80 fast-food restaurants in Tennessee, West Virginia, Virginia,

Ohio and Pennsylvania. “Jack was a beloved leader in our company, and his untimely passing is a blow to us all,” RMG said in a statement on its website. Sean Mangan, 27, said his father instructed him to fly and he always stressed attention to detail, preparation and safety. “He was the best pilot I know,” Sean Mangan said of his father. “Flying was his passion. He was a great pilot and a wonderful parent and husband.” As an Air Force fighter pilot, Jack Mangan flew F-4s and F15s and was an instructor and mission commander in the U.S. during Operation Desert Storm, said Rick Rountree, a spokesman for RMG. He received three meritorious service medals and was fighter pilot of the year in 1984, he said. The North American T-28 Trojan that he flew in the air show was a basic trainer that was used by the U.S Navy, including for carrier operation, according to The Boeing Co.’s website. Its first flight was in 1949 and it was designed to transition pilots to jet aircraft. “This was his hobby, to fly these T-28s,” Rountree said. “He loved doing it, and he actually flew a lot in his job.” Mangan and RMG also supported The Patriot Foundation, created to provide support to the families of soldiers in the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort

involving a federal energy audit and clothing allowance for poor children also appear off-target. Tomblin, meanwhile, has blamed Maloney for the relocation of the drilling firm he cofounded from West Virginia to Pennsylvania. But the move came four years after Maloney sold his shares in the company. Another ad makes an issue of a home the Maloney family owns in Georgia, although Tomblin and his wife have an out-ofstate vacation house as well. At least eight negative ads have aired. With early voting starting Wednesday, more are expected before the Oct. 4 election. The RGA and America

Works USA, which is funded by the Democratic Governors Association, had spent $1.8 million on their negative ads as of Friday, according to filings with the Secretary of State’s office. The Democratic group accounts for 57 percent of that amount. Maloney and Tomblin will detail their latest spending in campaign finance reports due Sept. 23. Most of the anti-Tomblin ads have focused on the kennel run by his mother and money it has received from the West Virginia Greyhound Breeding Development Fund. One Maloney ad says Tomblin “directed $2.5 million of taxpayer money” to the ken-

nel, while a second spot says he “voted to direct over $3 million” and a third alleges he “directed millions.” An RGA ad alleges that “with Tomblin in power, the Legislature pushed through a law to divert more state money to the Tomblins.” Among other sources, the ads cite a newspaper editorial and an opinion column that criticized Tomblin for voting on measures involving the greyhound fund. None of the press items mention taxes. Maloney repeatedly referred to the fund as “taxpayer money” during the race’s Sept. 13 debate, at one point alleging that if it “didn’t go to the breeders, it would be

in the general revenue fund.” Taxes are the chief source for the general revenue budget, and the greyhound fund relies on neither. Video lottery machines at the state’s four racetracks supply the bulk of its revenues, nearly $55 million since 1994. Wagering on races and casino table games at the tracks also provides funding. The fund aims to promote the in-state breeding, training and racing of greyhounds. It provides supplemental awards to the purses won in races. Officials do not direct the awarding of funds. They are instead based on points earned in races by a greyhound bred and owned in the state. The $2 mil-

Bragg. “He was very positive and upbeat and one of those natural born leaders,” Rountree said. “He was clearly the guy who RMG on a day-to-day basis, operationally, and he was an extremely popular leader with his employees.” Mangan’s death came a day after an air race crash in Reno, Nev., that killed nine, including the pilot of a vintage World War II P-51 Mustang fighter plane, and the team performing in the skies over Martinsburg was mindful of that tragedy before they performed. “Our hearts are hurting for all those involved in Reno, but now is the time for us to focus on our job,” the team said in a posting on their Facebook page before the West Virginia crash. “We are professionals and we take safety very seriously. Thunder over the Blue Ridge will go on today entertaining thousands of spectators safely.” The acrobatic team performs in air shows across such as the Thunder Over the Blue Ridge show organized over the weekend at an airport near Martinsburg, according to Gen. James Hoyer, West Virginia Air National Guard adjutant. The show is put on by the Air National Guard. The rest of the air show, including Sunday’s planned performances, were canceled.

lion to $3 million received by Tomblin Kennel represent less than 5 percent of the fund’s revenues. Tomblin’s attack ad says that “Maloney then sold his company for millions, and allowed the headquarters and West Virginia jobs to be moved to Pennsylvania.” But one newspaper article cited in the ad said that Maloney sold his share in Shaft Drillers International in 2006, while the other article it cites reported that the company was relocating in early 2010. “The company’s new owners moved their corporate headquarters just across the state line,” Maloney spokeswoman Michelle Yi said in a statement.

Attack ads now the norm in West Virginia race for governor CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The air war in West Virginia’s special election for governor has become negative, with the two leading candidates and their party backers broadcasting attacks that contain plenty of misleading and questionable allegations. At least four of the TV ads from GOP nominee Bill Maloney or his Republican Governors Association allies have attacked acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin over his mother’s greyhound breeding business. These spots have mischaracterized the state funds received by the business, and the Democrat’s role in how the money is distributed. Maloney’s attacks

Police: Trucker killed 3 prostitutes across South COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Longhaul trucker John Boyer’s gray beard and round face give him a grandfatherly appearance, but when he opens his mouth, he seethes with anger toward women. This hatred had murderous results, authorities said, as he picked up prostitutes around the Southeast, killed them and dumped their bodies near interstate highways. He’s accused of at least three slayings and is suspected in a fourth. Boyer has pleaded guilty to killing a woman in North Carolina and faces murder charges in slayings in Tennessee and South Carolina. His most recent confession came last month. The similarities of the cases and the apparent lack of remorse from Boyer have investigators encouraging their counterparts along highways around the Southeast to review unsolved killings and missing person files. Even his own attorney in the North Carolina case felt uneasy around him and wondered what else he might have done. “I think there are a lot more. There’s no telling. This guy traveled all over the country. Hopefully we’ll get more of these cases solved through DNA,” said detective Scott Smith of the Hickman County, Tenn., sheriff’s office. In the case Smith investi-

gated, Boyer picked up 25-yearold prostitute Jennifer Smith in April 2005 and brought her to an abandoned parking lot just off Interstate 40. The two argued over money, and Boyer strangled the victim with the seat belt of his truck, dumped her body from the cab, and drove off, the detective said. Her body was found in 2005 by a highway worker, but it took two years for investigators to match DNA found on her body to a sample Boyer gave after pleading guilty in North Carolina. Boyer confessed to the killing after investigators cornered him with the evidence, but he also went on a tirade against women, said Smith, who’s not related to the victim. The investigator was chilled by the hatred toward women from a man who had never been married and lived with his mother near Augusta, Ga. A woman who answered the phone Friday at a listing for Boyer’s mother denied knowing him. Darlington County, S.C., Sheriff’s Capt. Andy Locklair immediately got the same impression when he stepped into an interview room to question Boyer about a killing in that state. The first thing Boyer said to him was: “What b---- are you here about?” Locklair confronted Boyer earlier this month about the

death of 34-year-old Michelle Haggadone. Her body was found in April 2000 beneath pine straw at a parking area on Interstate 20 near Florence, about 30 miles from the truck stop where Boyer had picked her up. Boyer immediately denied killing Haggadone, lashing out at Locklair and an investigator with him. “He said he had slept with a lot of prostitutes and a lot of them were detectives’ daughters or prosecutors’ daughters,” Locklair said. “He just tried to get the upper hand from the start.” The captain added: “I’m not a behavior science expert, but he has some deep, deep issues with women.” Haggadone was strangled with a wire or cord after the two argued over the price of her services, authorities said. Her body went unidentified for a decade, until a DNA sample from a relatives matched a sample from her body. Investigators had no DNA evidence to go on, but Locklair and another investigator realized several aspects of the crime, like what the victim was doing and where and how she

was killed, matched the earlier slayings linked to Boyer. Without physical evidence to back him into a corner, Locklair decided he would try to draw a confession by gaining Boyer’s trust. He told Boyer about his father, who also was a truck driver, then started trapping him in his lies. Locklair’s case and the one in Tennessee will take some time to resolve. Boyer will be taken to Tennessee to face a first-degree murder charge after his North Carolina sentence ends. He is going to face a murder charge in South Carolina, but Locklair isn’t sure when he might end up in court because of the other two cases. Boyer had been interviewed when Wood was still considered a missing person case because the two had been seen together at a party the night she disappeared. Authorities said detectives later got incriminating statements from Boyer when the case became a homicide investigation. At least two of the unsolved cases involve woman who were small and slightly built, like Boyer’s other alleged victims.

U.S. postal service should be privatized It is not a shock hear the United States Postal Service is going to close more offices, four of which are in West Virginia, according to The government agency has had financial troubles for 10 years with no solutions other than closing its smaller branches. With the USPS currently being $8 billion in debt, extreme measures had to be taken even if it means short-term job losses.

The decision to close 250 processing facilities nationwide is not enough to solve the problem. The best answer to the problem is closing the USPS altogether. How will everyone receive their mail? Will the world end as well? Not hardly. If the postal service were to close its doors, it would not be the end of mail. There is still a demand for it, and therefore the industry will be carried out in the private business sector.

Although thousands of jobs will be lost (temporarily), the end result will be much better than what we have today. Every letter or package that would usually be sent through USPS would just be sent through a private company. Private companies in the industry would pick up the work once performed by USPS, which would lead to those companies hiring more workers (theoretically, those would be the same workers who once worked for the USPS).

There is still a need for mail, but that need is declining. With more people paying bills online and communicating through emails, this has taken its toll on the postal service, which is why the government agency is failing. The U.S. government should dissolve the postal service and focus its attention on its enormous list of “things to fix,” such as our national deficit. By making cuts with the postal service and not shutting it down, it is likely that the only

result will be a sub-par mail system. If mail was completely privatized, the competition between companies would ensure quality. The government should not give money to the USPS to keep it afloat. Let the basic rules of economics govern the mail industry. As long as there is a demand for mail, there will be an entrepreneur to carry it.

On Tuesday, Sept. 20, the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy will finally be repealed, allowing gay and lesbian soldiers to finally serve in the military without the worry of being treated like second-class citizens. The policy was established in 1993 during the Clinton administration as a means of decreasing discrimination against gays, lesbians and bisexuals in the military by denying the recruiter’s ability to ask questions regarding sexual orientation during recruitment. However, if a claim of sexual orientation is mentioned, the recruiter has the right to

the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population. A person who wants to fight for this country should be given the opportunity, regardless of his or her sexual orientation. The repealing of this policy is a giant step for gay rights and gay marriage. The road to gay marriage is going to be long and difficult. Even though there are six states, along with the District of Columbia, that have legalized gay marriage, there are 30 other states that amended their constitutions to ban gay marriage. “It (gay marriage) ceases to send the crucial social message that (marriage) sends now, which is that oppositesex sexual relationships are important; they are unique,” said Peter Spriggs, a spokesman for the Family Research Council, an organization that opposes

gay marriage. This way of thinking goes against today’s mentality. The country is being held back by conservative views that do not help society, only hinder it. The policy was written fourteen years ago, when the idea of homosexuals in the military was taboo, and since then (it has become known fact that gays serve in the military). Supporters have said the knowledge of a homosexual soldier in the military would obstruct unit cohesion and morale. This claim is utterly wrong, because it defends the excuse of homophobia as a means to mistreat someone. Matthew Shepard’s case proves that homophobia is not an acceptable excuse for murder in the U.S. judicial system. Shepard, a University of Wyoming student, was tied to a fence and brutally assaulted for

being gay in 1998. He died days later with his family by his side. The fact that they did not like him for his sexual orientation is defended by the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. It encourages that it is not acceptable for people to be themselves and that it is alright for someone to possess hatred and prejudice. We live in a society that teaches “do not get raped” instead of “do not rape,” and that hiding behind lies is the best way to live life, lest we be judged. These ways of thinking are outdated and beyond hurtful; they are disparaging to the spirit of homosexuals. The “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy basically says that gay life is not right, it is not normal, and it is not tolerable to have desires that are potentially never going to be acted on. This logic defends hate, be-

discharge the service person because it was an open claim of engagement in prohibited conduct. The policy was a compromise between Congress, President Clinton and the military to alleviate discrimination, but it also allowed Congress to regulate land and naval forces. Although the policy was meant to help, it only harmed the rights of homosexual servicemen and women and the military in general. It takes away the civil liberties and rights of homosexual Americans, lowering them down to substandard citizens in a country founded on the principle of equality. Not only does this policy hinder the rights of individuals, but it conflicts with the very essence of America. Civil rights have been granted to almost all types of U.S. citizens, except for

Repealing ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ is a big step

cause it supports stereotypes. If a straight soldier cannot get past the fact that gay soldiers are equally capable, then they are not fit to defend the country. Soldiers who discriminate are a disruption to unit cohesion and morale. Those soldiers do not deserve to defend a country founded on equality, especially if they are denying the constitutional rights of a peer and fellow soldier. With the repeal of the policy, the country is becoming more open-minded about sexual orientation in the military and in marriage. If a door is opened to one race, creed or origin, then it should be open to all. And if a soldier cannot handle serving with a homosexual person, then he or she is not mature enough to serve the country in times of war.

Words of Wisdom A message from the University Police Department Make good choices when it comes to celebrating

Robert Fritz - composer, filmmaker, creator. You make many choices every day. The choice to go this way or that, to listen to this song or that song, to play this game or that game, to study for SGTS. Kenneth main and this class or that class. Many of the choices are inpeggy runyon consequential to the way your University Police department life unfolds. But some are not, even “The way to activate the those that may seem so at the seeds of your creation is by time. Like the choice to particmaking choices about the re- ipate in setting a malicious fire on the street or in a trash bin. sults you want to create.”


We want everyone to support their school and team while keeping celebration choices in good taste. But what may start out as seemingly harmless fun, can quickly erupt into a dangerous situation. Setting fires can kill injure. Whether you start the fire or add something to an existing fire, being a part of the process is a serious offense and can result in fines, penalties and suspension or expulsion from West Virginia University,

as well as lead to arrest, probation, civil damages, community service hours, counseling and a criminal record. Legally, malicious burning is defined as willfully and maliciously burning or assisting in the burning of any materials, property of your own, or property belonging to another on any public street, private street, right-of-way, alley, sidewalk, driveway or parking lot. To legally burn in the City of Morgantown, one must pur-

chase a permit from the Morgantown Fire Marshal’s office, even for something as simple as a bonfire. There are various Department of Health Regulations and Air Pollution issues that must be addressed. According to city ordinances, a person can be fined no less than $100 and no more than $1,000 for each violation. If you throw more than one item in a fire, you can be charged for each item. Make good choices and carefully consider the con-

sequences of actions or inactions: • Encourage others not to participate in setting fires • Do not add items to an existing fire • Leave any area where this situation may be occurring • Report incidents to 911 We encourage you to celebrate in a responsible manner. Don’t put yourself and others at risk from careless acts. Everyone is encouraged to make their talent the flame and their genius the fire.

Spotify brings back peer-to-peer music service by Matt Sunday Art Director

Since the downfall of Napster’s original peer-to-peer download service, music lovers have spent the last 10 years searching for the “replacement” music program; in short, Spotify is the answer. When iTunes released their music store, consumers started to pay for music again. Then, unlimited services, such as Rhapsody, surfaced, and focus started shifting to paying monthly fees for unlimited listening. Now, Spotify is merging social networking with paying for tiered levels of listening. It’s setting the curve for what to expect in a music listening application and service. What sets Spotify apart from similar services, such as Rhapsody and Napster, is the consumer’s ability to import and listen to their iTunes and Windows Media Player music with a single click during setup. This allows users to easily begin sharing their created playlists with friends without knowing how to export and import playlists across multiple applications. With Spotify’s social integration, the user is then able to share his or her playlists, or recommend music to Facebook and Twitter with a single click. With Facebook, sharing and publishing begins as soon as you link your accounts through the music

application. Aside from playlist sharing, users can actually collaborate on playlists, adding a whole new dimension to music listening and allowing offices, teams and groups of friends to create diverse playlists to satisfy all listeners. Being able to listen to music is the root of a subscriptionbased product like this, and Spotify has three tiers of services available. The first tier, the free option, is currently only available through an invite to the service. Hopeful users are able to grab an invite from a friend or wait in Spotify’s queue for an email, with the former being the easiest approach. The free version of the service allows users to browse a catalog of music and play most of the songs from their favorite artists. The free version does have a listening cap and users are required to hear an advertisement every few songs. The second tier, “Spotify Unlimited,” costs the consumer $4.99 per month and allows unlimited, ad-free streaming of music. While both of those features are a plus, the only other gain for the first pay-to-listen tier is the ability to listen to your music abroad for more than 14 days; a feature that won’t affect the average non-traveling listener. It is the $9.99 per month, “Spotify Premium” tier, that really shows off Spotify’s abilities. With the top-tier service, consumers are able to take

their music on-the-go with an iPhone, iPod, iPad or Android device. This best-of-show feature not only lets users listen to the Spotify catalog, it lets them listen to songs from their hard drive that is a part of their mobile playlist selection. The only time that these songs need to be actually saved to the device is if the user makes the playlist available for offline listening. Even while streaming over a 3G connection, songs are able to be played in their highest available quality without a hiccup. In fact, listening in high quality on any device is only available in the top-tier subscription as well. Top-tier users are also able to purchase in-home stereo setups that make use of Spotify’s services similar to DVD and Blu-Ray devices that incorporate Netflix streaming. While this isn’t a feature that will benefit every consumer, it should help Spotify gain long-term-commitment from users looking for the ultimate media setup in their home or office. Legal sharing of music is the “new Napster,” and Spotify’s incorporation of social media devices makes that possible and easy. Look for a featured Spotify playlist in The Daily Athenaeum every Tuesday for a chance to discover new music and offer your own suggestions.

THE TORTOISE AND THE SCARE No. 16 WVU holds off late rally, downs Maryland 37-31 by cody schuler sports writer

Things couldn’t have been much better for West Virginia after a first half that saw the offense rack up 198 yards en route to a 27-10 lead. So, naturally, things got worse. By the end of the game, Maryland’s offense racked up 477 total yards of offense – the first time West Virginia’s defense has allowed more than 400 yards since the 2010 Gator Bowl. Things were looking good for the Mountaineers to start the half after junior quarterback Geno Smith found redshirt sophomore wide receiver Stedman Bailey deep over the middle for a 34-yard touchdown. After that electric play, though, the momentum swiftly shifted toward the Terrapins. “The biggest single thing that we tried to get accomplished this week was to hit the field with some excitement and start the game fast,” said head coach Dana Holgorsen. “The first half, I felt like we won all three sides of the ball. Second half, other than the first drive for offense and the last drive for defense, I thought they outplayed us on all three sides of the ball.” A third quarter that quickly began with Maryland facing a 24-point deficit ended with the Terrapins closing the gap to just 11 points. A pair of rushing touchdowns by senior Davin Meggett and sophomore D.J. Adams put Maryland within striking distance heading into the final period. The duo would finish the game with a combined three touchdowns and 199 yards of total offense. With 10:29 remaining in the fourth quarter, Adams again hit pay dirt, scoring from two yards out to cut the WVU lead to five points. Maryland then elected to go for two, and the attempt was successful as Meggett pushed his way over the goal line and shrunk the Mountaineer lead to just three points. In need of a big play to prevent Maryland from getting the ball back and potentially taking the lead, West Virginia got another big play from Bailey, who took a screen pass 21 yards on third down to keep the drive alive. “Late in the game, (Maryland) had a lot of momentum, and I just felt like I needed to make a play,” Bailey said. “I was able to keep my feet in and keep going for the first down.” matt sunday/the daily athenaeum

West Virginia didn’t fold under late pressure against Terrapins by ben gaughan

associate sports editor

West Virginia lost all momentum after the first drive of the third quarter until about 5 minutes left to go in the fourth, when Maryland started a drive on its own 26yard line. Up 37-31, No. 16 West Virginia was on its heels, giving up three straight completions to quarterback Danny O’Brien on the drive, putting Maryland into WVU territory. On third down with eight yards to go, redshirt senior safety Eain Smith intercepted O’Brien’s pass to close out the victory and send the Mountaineers back to Morgantown – still undefeated. “For them to have every ounce of momentum that existed in the entire stadium, and for us to be able to finish offensively with a field goal and defensively with a turnover, says a lot about the team,” said West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen. The Mountaineers led by

Then, Maryland came out stronger and smarter than the Mountaineers in the second half, scoring 21 unanswered points and not committing

any turnovers until the final minutes of the game. “They played harder than we did for a majority of the second half, and they got some momentum, and it’s a game of momentum,” Holgorsen said.

Mountaineers will go as far as Geno takes them It wasn’t hard to spot the best player on the field in West Virginia’s 37-31 victory over Maryland. Don’t get me wrong, there were a number of players who did really well Saturday. Maryland quarterback Danny O’Brien and running back Davin Meggett were all huge when the Terrapins tried to mount an amazing comeback. Junior Tavon Austin, redshirt sophomore Stedman Bailey and sophomore Ivan McCartney all did a fantastic job catching the football for WVU. But the one who really stood out was West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith. In the first half of Saturday’s game, Smith put on a display that hasn’t been seen much from a Mountaineer quarterback. His 48 passes were the most of any WVU quarterback since Brad Lewis threw 52 against Maryland in 2001 and his 388 yards went down as the sixth-most in a single game in school history. When the Mountaineers put up 27 points in the first half, it was Smith leading the way. The junior signal caller continuously made great passes, hitting receivers

michael carvelli sports editor

with incredible ease multiple times over the course of those first two quarters. At one point, he threw a pass into double coverage down the field. Smith dropped it perfectly into McCartney’s hands, a pass that not many quarterbacks would have been able to complete. He cooled off in the second half with several mediocre throws. But if the quarterback continues to play this well, WVU is going to be very hard for anyone to beat. The way he’s stepped in and adapted to head coach Dana Holgorsen’s offense has been amazing. He’s caught on quickly and has been about as good as anybody would have expected him to be – if not better. Will they beat LSU next week? I don’t know. Will they have a better chance with Smith playing as well as he has so far this season? Without a doubt. This is the first time since the Pat White era that West Virginia fans should truly feel

like they have a great chance to win every single game they play. It’s a combination of Smith being as good as he is and this offensive scheme being as good as it is. Every time Smith steps on the field, he leads this team the way every team should want a quarterback to lead. He fires up his teammates and he’s outstanding at running the WVU offense at the pace Holgorsen wants it to be run. If Smith and the Mountaineers play the way they did this weekend – and not let up like they did in the second half against the Terrapins – there shouldn’t be much trouble throughout the Big East Conference schedule. But that’s something that is amazing about this offense. So much of it relies on how well Smith is able to carry the team. And if Saturday’s first half and the second half of the Mountaineers’ victory over Norfolk State are any indication, Smith will be just fine carrying this team wherever it wants to go. Obviously this week’s

Offense hitting stride at right time by alex sims sports writer

Freshman Kate Schwindel scored her first goal early in WVU’s 3-0 win over No. 8 Marquette Sunday.

Schwindel scores first goal of career against Marquette by ben gaughan

It took 21 shots on goal before freshman forward Kate Schwindel scored her first goal in a West Virginia uniform, but she finally got over the hump. The West Virginia women’s soccer team dominated No. 8 Marquette in its 3-0 win Sunday at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium, and Schwindel played a large part in the victory. “That kid’s been knocking,” said WVU head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. “She did it. She just was relentless, and that’s what you have to do. I’m excited. Getting your first goal collegiately is pretty exciting.” Schwindel led the Mountaineers with five shots-ongoal and had several runs down the sidelines to create scoring chances for the offense. Her goal came in the second minute of the second half. Junior midfielder Bri Rodriguez came on the right side of the 18-yard box and crossed into the middle toward the goal. Schwindel capitalized on the

pass, using her head to put the ball past Marquette’s goalkeeper Natalie Kulla to give WVU a 2-0 advantage. “(Junior defender) Bry McCarthy was taking it down the side, and I’m usually on that side, but I decided to get in the middle and make a run to the back,” Schwindel said. “She crossed it perfectly back, and I got my head on it. It kind of went to the goalie, but she dove over it, and it just went right under.” The forward was happy with her goal but joked about how the header was a “slow roller” even though it went in. The Livingston, N.J., native knew the goal would come at some point. She just had to keep working like she has all season, not allowing herself to think about her lack of goals. “Coming out of high school, scoring all those goals and then coming to this high level, it was definitely hard, but I knew if I kept trying I would eventually get one,” Schwindel said. Schwindel and her WVU teammates controlled most

of the possession in the game against the No. 8 team in the country, giving them a lot of confidence for the rest of Big East play. “I feel like al the pressure was on them,” she said. “We just had to come out and play our game, and they had to hold their number 8 spot. With us coming out unranked, I feel like we were definitely the underdogs, and we definitely came out on top.” Schwindel came out and played the way she knows she is capable of playing every game. And actually putting the ball in the back of the net helped her confidence, knowing that she can perform at a high level against one of the best teams in the country. “I know before this I was thinking about getting a goal, but it was definitely on my mind a lot,” she said. “Finally getting this I feel like I’m going to keep trying to get those goals, because I know that I can do that, and I feel I can help the team a lot more.”

The West Virginia men’s soccer offensive attack is starting to come together at just the right time. The No. 12 Mountaineers (4-2-1) begin Big East Conference play next Sunday when they take on No. 17 South Florida (4-2-1). During this weekend’s action, the Mountaineers offense exploded against non-conference opponents Richmond, and Duquesne in Morgantown. The team took advantage of their return home after a frustrating road trip to California, in which they failed to score a goal in two games. West Virginia has won an NCAA-leading 13 straight home games. WVU had only notched four goals on the season, with only one of its five games taking place at home, heading into its weekend matchup against Richmond and Duquesne. When all was said and done on Friday night, the Mountaineers saw its goal total double after a 4-1 win. Forward Andy Bevin, who leads the team in goals, scored two more, giving him five on the season. The story for the West Virginia offense, however, is not just the play of its freshman striker. “It’s important that more of the boys are stepping up, that they too can get on the board and get their confidence up,” Bevin said. “It just feeds positive vibes and it’s going to

The drive eventually stalled when the Mountaineer offense could not find the end zone after three consecutive plays inside the 10-yard line. Redshirt junior kicker Tyler Bitancurt connected on a 21-yard field goal to make the score 37-31 in favor of West Virginia. But there was still plenty of time left for Maryland to have a chance to drive down the field and take the game. Maryland and sophomore quarterback Danny O’Brien appeared poised to do just that, as the Terrapin offense was driving methodically down field. O’Brien had completed three straight passes on the drive before redshirt senior safety Eain Smith picked the sophomore off to seal the victory for the Mountaineers. “(The receiver) ran a seam route, (and) I was just in the right place at the right time,” Smith said. “I kind of recog-

“We had all the momentum in the first half, and they had it in the second, but just real proud of the way the guys finished the game.” WVU finally put together a fast start, going up 34-10

hopefully carry on into the next games.” A few key parts of the West Virginia offense were able to break through for their first goals of the season, including junior forward Peabo Doue. “It was definitely a confidence booster,” said Doue. “It’s always good to get that first goal out of the system, and just go from there.” That is exactly what the Germantown, Md., native did when gave his team their first goal of the game on Sunday against Duquesne in a 3-1 victory. Fellow junior Shadow Sebele was also able to notch his first two goals of the season to go with three assists after netting one in both matches during the weekend. The midfielder was happy that he and his teammates

were able to break through this weekend and score some key goals. “I like to think of myself as a creator,” said Sebele. “If I can help any way out to create goals for teammates it’s good for me.” Against Richmond, nine Mountaineers registered two or more shots, leading to a total of 26 on the game. The 26 shots taken by WVU were more than triple its average of 8.4 shots per game going into the weekend. The Mountaineers followed up a great offensive game with another dominating performance against Duquesne, adding 15 more shots by eight different players. The team will need all it can get from its talented offense with Big East play looming.

nized what route he was running before he broke it off. I just got my head back in time and saw the ball.” In the first half, the West Virginia offense had its quickest start of the season. The Mountaineers had 315 yards of total offense through the first two quarters of play and 232 of those came through the air. After a Nick Ferrara field goal gave Maryland an early 3-0 lead, West Virginia answered by taking the lead on a 9-yard touchdown run by freshman running back Vernard Roberts. West Virginia’s defense forced its first turnover of the season on Maryland’s next drive. Junior safety Terence Garvin intercepted an O’Brien pass and took it back 37 yards for a touchdown. Junior Tavon Austin led all receivers with 11 catches for 122 yards. Sophomore Ivan McCartney also grabbed eight catches for 113 yards. After adding in Bailey’s performance, it was the first time

since 1998 that at least two receivers gained 100 or more yards. Smith threw the ball 49 times, completing 36 passes for a career-high 388 yards and a touchdown. “The tempo for us was fantastic,” Holgorsen said. “I’ve said this a bunch: When we get things going, it’s easier to play with tempo.” O’Brien finished with 289 yards passing, including one touchdown and three interceptions. Meggett carried the ball 19 times for 113 yards and Kevin Dorsey led all Maryland receivers with nine catches for 79 yards and a score. “Maryland’s a good program; they’re well coached,” Holgorsen said. “They have good players that are in a good conference and all the rest. “We knew it was going to be a tough game, and I felt like we were ready, and I was just happy to see us finish the game.”

at one point in the second half and looking almost unstoppable at times passing the ball. Some mental breakdowns on both sides of the ball led to the Maryland comeback. Making adjustments on the fly and continuing to execute is something the coaches and players stressed still needs to improve as the season continues. “We’ve got a lot of stuff to still work on,” said senior linebacker Najee Goode of the team’s second half play. “(Maryland) came out and ran the football like they didn’t in the first half, and it wasn’t like we came out lackadaisical or anything. They kept getting us on certain things, and we adjusted to it late.” The Mountaineers still struggled to put together a full football game on both sides of the ball but, nonetheless, squeaked out of the opposing team’s field with a win. There were several areas to look back with a positive attitude about, and that’s the team’s focus as it looks on to next week. The biggest play the defense is able to look back at, however, was the interception at the end of the game by Smith.

“That (play) was huge, because they weren’t really doing any drop back passes early in the game besides one or two times ... that’s exactly what we needed,” Goode said. “We either need a turnover or a stop on that fourth down that they barely got. To come up with a play like that at an away game, it’s huge for the whole team; it’s huge for the defense. It gives the offense energy.” WVU allowed 119 rushing yards to Maryland running back Davin Meggett and two other rushing touchdowns to running back D.J. Adams. But the offense and defense made enough important plays throughout the game that allowed them to get ahead and stay ahead despite the small scare by the Terps in the fourth quarter. “We learned at the end of the game, we have to all come together at the end of the game as a team,” said junior quarterback Geno Smith. “The offense went down and got three. Our defense came out, and we knew we had to stop them, so we caused a turnover and won the game. We want a team victory like that.”

WVU wins two weekend Mountaineers dominate nonconference games No. 8 Marquette, win 3-0 by nick arthur sports writer

Junior midfielder Shadow Sebele scored two goals and had three assists this weekend in the team’s two victories against Richmond and Duquesne.

sports correspondent

The No. 12 West Virginia men’s soccer team returned home this weekend to battle Richmond and Duquesne. In Friday’s game, the Mountaineers capitalized on three first half goals to pick up a 4-1 win and improve their home winning streak to 13 games. WVU head coach Marlon LeBlanc was happy to see the dedication and support of the student section and crowd of 1,075 that was in attendance. “I applaud the fans who were here,” LeBlanc said. “I appreciate the fans who came out. It’s about school pride.” The pace of the game was all in West Virginia’s favor. Richmond had only five shots to West Virginia’s 26. Junior midfielder Shadow Sebele had a solid game with one goal, one assist, and six shots. “We saw the brilliance he brings to the table and a lot of it started with his defending,” LeBlanc said of Sebele.

Freshman Andy Bevin continued his solid first year as a Mountaineer, finishing with two goals and an assist. Bevin and Sebele, along with juniors Uwem Etuk and Travis Pittman had assists for the Mountaineers. Richmond’s lone goal came from Luis Perez. Duquesne came into Morgantown Sunday and LeBlanc and his team weren’t going to take lightly. “Duquesne’s a committed team dedicated to the field,” he said. “It comes down to us not making mistakes.” The Mountaineers picked up a 3-1 victory over the Dukes in front of a crowd of 1,077 Sunday. Their first goal came off of a free kick from junior forward Peabo Doue. Sebele followed with a goal of his own from 25 yards outand also added two assists. Senior defender Uzi Tayou also scored to finish off the Dukes. The only goal of the game

for Duquesne came off the foot of Sean Gardner. Goalkeeper Justin Holmes finished the game with four saves. WVU had 15 shots in the game and LeBlanc was pleased with his team’s performance. Next up for the Mountaineers comes the Big East Conference schedule, where they kick off against South Florida. “It’s just about being better for South Florida than Duquesne,” LeBlanc said. “It’s big to get two straight wins. We’ve played a daunting schedule, probably the second or third toughest (in the nation). I’m happy to be 4-2-1 in non-conference play.” Doue said he and the rest of the Mountaineers are ready to start Big East play. “I’m very excited. It’s going to be tough, every Big East game is tough,” he said. “We just have to be focused and take it game by game.”

The West Virginia women’s soccer team extended its winning streak to four games with a 3-1 victory over No. 8 Marquette Sunday afternoon. The win for the Mountaineers ended Marquette’s streak of 16 straight regular season Big East Conference victories. “I have all the respect in the world for what Marquette does and what they are as a program,” said West Virginia head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. “For us to come out and do what we did against a team like this just shows the focus and intensity of what West Virginia soccer brought today.” A crowd of 937 attended the matchup between the two Big East foes at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. West Virginia (6-3-0) improved to 2-0 in Big East play. “All the credit to the team, they were unbelievable today,” Izzo-Brown said. “The energy they brought, the enthusiasm was just unbelievable.” Senior forward Blake Miller put the home team on the board first just before halftime on a header assisted by sophomore Emily Dillon. The goal was Miller’s fourth of the season. The Mountaineers came out after halftime strong and scored just 50 seconds after the second half began. Freshman forward Kate Schwindel scored on a cross by midfielder Bri Rodriguez. The goal was Schwindel’s first of her college career. Schwindel had been close to scoring a goal multiple times early in the season, but was unable to punch one in. In fact, the Livingston, N.J., native hit the cross bar during the first half of Sunday’s game. West Virginia added another goal late in the game to extend the lead to 3-0. But, Marquette was able to net an 86th-min-

Izzo-Brown feels this was the best game played this season by her squad. “Best game thus far; I thought we played 90 minutes of intense soccer,” she said. “We played West Virginia soccer. “As a coach you’re never sat-

isfied, but you can’t be more proud of what this team did today.” The team wore pink jerseys to honor breast cancer awareness. At halftime, a check for $12,650 was presented to the Betty Puskar Breast Care Center fund.
