Quake tremors felt in Morgantown “ ” by mackenzie mays city editor

Students and faculty on the West Virginia University campus felt their dorms and classrooms shake Tuesday after an earthquake hit near Richmond, Va. at around 1 p.m. The earthquake measured at 5.8 on the Richter scale. “This is a rare event for us. For here, the earthquake was about as big as they come,” said

Tom Wilson, a WVU geophysics professor. “This is a rare event “We’re in a passive margin, meaning there isn’t active plate for us. For here, the movement. It’s uncommon to earthquake is about as have one of such magnitude in big as they come.” this area.” Zach King, a junior broadTom Wilson cast major, said he didn’t know WVU Geophysics Professor what to think when the quake hit. “I thought a large truck had thought it was an actual earthdriven by and rumbled the quake because we live in West sidewalk,” King said. “I never Virginia.”

More than 90 calls to 911 were made within the hour that the quake hit, said Michael Wolfe, deputy director of Monongalia County’s Office of Emergency Management. “We had reports coming in of shaky buildings and people feeling queasy and dizzy,” Wolfe said. A damage assessment of the county revealed there was no structural damage to buildings and no one was harmed, Wolfe

said. “No official evacuation was announced. Those were made out of precaution and based on individuals’ concerns,” Wolfe said. The Waterfront Place Hotel and the Engineering Sciences building were evacuated, said John Bolt, director of WVU News and Information Services. “The decisions to evacuate were made by the people on

the scene. There is no indication of any damage or other issues,” Bolt said. Bolt also said text message alerts were sent out to students when the quake first hit. “It was a first for most of us,” he said. “We responded how we thought was appropriate, and let people know what was going on that and that everything was fine.” mackenzie.mays@mail.wvu.edu

The West Virginia University Recreation Center will be hosting an event today to celebrate its 10th year of service to students as part of University Welcome Week. The event will be held in the 177,000-foot facility and along the green space outside of the Rec Center. Sherri Restauri, the program manager for special events at the University, said there will be many activities at the event such as free chair massages throughout the day and Zumba classes from 5 p.m. - 6 p.m. She also said there will

be various prize drawings, which anyone can enter to win prizes ranging from a free SCUBA certification class, worth $350, to gift cards and WVU gear. “We hope people will come out on Wednesday, especially freshmen who may not have been to the Rec Center yet,” Restauri said. Along with the activities, there will be many sport and outdoor club information booths throughout the rec center. The Rec Center opened on July 17, 2001 and has been serving West Virginia students ever since.

Students use Facebook to connect with sick professor by mackenzie mays city editor

While some worry about the effect social networking sites have on today’s youth, West Virginia University students are using Facebook to raise the spirits of a professor whose health conditions recently forced him to take a break from teaching. George Esper worked as a reporter for the Associated Press for more than 40 years and served as a special correspondent during the Vietnam and Gulf wars before he began teaching journalism courses at WVU in 2000. Esper’s passion for teaching journalism courses and desire to help aspiring reporters is known throughout the WVU School of Journalism. One of the students he took under his wing was Ivy Guiler. “Literally from the first day I met him, George had a special place in my life,” Guiler said, who graduated from WVU in 2005. “He was gracious enough to give his own time to help

me become a better student, a better reporter and a better person.” When Esper found himself in the hospital back at his home in Boston during the holidays last year, Guiler knew what she had to do: “A Grace Bomb.” Former students, colleagues and friends of Esper’s provided video, audio and written messages to Guiler, who made a compilation of the well wishes and “dropped them like a bomb” on the professor. “I had been using Facebook for years to rally prayer for George each time he was faced with a health issue and to keep people updated,” she said. “The surprise was our attempt to lift George’s spirits during the holidays. We got a huge response and even more messages from people saying they were praying for him.” Now, about 100 people have signed up for the official “George Esper Update”

Welcome Week festivities continue in the Mountainlair by Amy Rogers Staff Writer

Booths lined the West Virginia Mountainlair Tuesday to provide returning and incoming students with job opportunities and helpful information. The booths offered information to students about tutoring, health and wellness, parking and transportation, information technology assistance and volunteer opportunities. Free, “drop-in” tutoring services are provided by the WVU Academic Resource

Centers from the Office of Retention and Research. With 14 different class subjects, many tutoring courses are offered in the introduction courses, such as in sciences, chemistry and math. However, there are some more advanced courses covered in the tutoring services. Tutoring services are geared toward helping the incoming freshmen with difficult introductory classes. The services are also in place to help all other students

long gone silent for lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual individuals, Clements said, and all teens are entitled to a safe place to learn. Clements, West Virginia policies are not enough. The state’s law lacks an enumeration clause, which has been found by independent research studies and the federal government to be key to protecting our youth in schools. This is exactly why Bradley Milam, program director of Fairness WV, saw a need for a change. Milam started the program in April as an outreach for students and their parents.

Milam said he was bullied and the subject of homophobic slurs every day in school, so he was willing to listen to the similar stories of others. “It’s a national epidemic,” he said. “We launched this campaign with ACLU as an educational tool not just for students and parents, but for policy-makers and educators. We’re trying to find out what policies in West Virginia work and which ones don’t.” While the focus so far has been on gay students, the best course of action is to extend this

Woman convicted of child New Jersey republican lawmaker abuse in hot sauce case quits over wife’s Carl Lewis email

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska woman was convicted Tuesday of misdemeanor child abuse after squirting hot sauce into the mouth of her adopted Russian son as punishment in what prosecutors said was a ploy to get on the “Dr. Phil” TV show. Prosecutors also said defendant Jessica Beagley, 36, of Anchorage made the 7-yearold boy stand in a cold shower when he misbehaved. Both actions were recorded on videotape. Neither Beagley nor her husband Gary Beagley, an Anchorage police officer, showed any emotion when the sevenperson jury announced its decision. The couple walked quickly from the courtroom and down a set of stairs without responding to questions from reporters. Jessica Beagley could face the maximum sentence of one year in jail, a $10,000 fine and up to 10 years of probation when she is sentenced Monday, said District Court Judge David Wallace. She remains free without bail because the case is a misdemeanor.

Prosecutor Cynthia Franklin also left the courtroom without commenting. Defense attorney William Ingaldson said his client was faced with a difficult situation dealing with a child with emotional problems when she reached out to the “Dr. Phil” show for help. If she hadn’t done that, she never would have been charged with child abuse, he said. “It is our feeling Jessica was doing the best she could ... this is a very good, loving family,” Ingaldson said. He believes the city child abuse ordinance fails to spell out what is acceptable in terms of punishment. For example, under the law it would be possible to convict a parent who put a child in a timeout for what a jury might consider too long, he said. Ingaldson will request that Beagley receive no jail time. Asked if the children could be taken from the family, he said that could not be done by anybody in Alaska because the Beagleys had already been investigated by the office of children’s services, which found no reason to take any action.

In closing arguments Monday, Franklin said Beagley recorded the punishment on Oct. 21, 2010, for a segment of the show titled “Mommy Confessions.” Beagley’s defense lawyer countered that she made the video and eventually went on the show because she was desperate to find help for her son, a Russian orphan with psychological and emotional problems. Beagley was forced to use unconventional means of punishment because traditional methods didn’t work, Ingaldson said. The eight-minute video shows Beagley confronting the boy about misbehaving in school and lying, then pouring hot sauce into the crying child’s mouth and not allowing him to spit it out for more than a minute. The footage also shows Beagley forcing the screaming boy into a cold shower before sending him off the bed. “There is no reason in the world why someone has to hurt a child to get on a reality show,” Franklin said in her closing argument.

that familiar with Facebook, but he does feel blessed to know so many people care,” Guiler said. “I pass along every message people send to me for George. It really lifts his spirits every time he hears that someone is sending well wishes or is taking time to pray for him.” Now, Guiler works in social media, and said she hopes others can witness the capabilities of sites like Facebook. “I get to witness and be a part of a lot of really pos-

itive projects and events,” she said. “Obviously, this one is most near and dear to me.” The “George Esper Update” Facebook page is open to the public and is updated often, sending direct message to its attendees. “George started as my mentor, but he very quickly became more than that,” Guiler said. “He’s one of my nearest and dearest friends, and I’m forever changed because of him. He continues to shape my life to this day.”

group exercise classes. “When the Rec first opened we charged for group exercise classes. Several years after, we made the classes free, and saw a great increase in attendance,” Taylor said. He said the Rec Center is a great place for students to enjoy recreation at one specific place, rather than many locations. “Having everything under one roof is significant. I’ve seen students come to the rec and lift a while, then go

play basketball on our courts and finish a workout with a swim in the pool,” he said. Taylor said he looks forward to the event. “We are very excited to share this anniversary with our students and we look forward to Wednesday,” he said The Rec Center is scheduled to complete an $8.4 million field project within the next week.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A freshman Republican lawmaker resigned because his wife sent “an offensive and racist” email to the Democratic state Senate campaign of nine-time Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis, a GOP official acknowledged Monday. Pat Delany stepped down from the state Assembly this month and said he wouldn’t seek a full term in November because of his wife’s missive to Lewis’ campaign, Burlington County Republican Chairman Bill Layton said. Delany originally cited an unspecified family issue as the reason for his abrupt resignation. Delany and his wife, Jennifer Delany, are white. Lewis, a political novice who’s among the greatest athletes of all time, is black. Jennifer Delany’s email to Lewis’ campaign said, in part, “Imagine having dark skin and name recognition and the nerve to think that equaled knowing something about politics.” Layton said Pat Delany de-

Over the next 12 years, he would collect five more golds at the Olympics. New Jersey’s top elections official, Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, ruled Lewis ineligible to run for office this spring, and this month she declined to certify his name for the November ballot. Lewis, 50, challenged the ruling in federal and state courts. Lewis exhausted his appeals in state court when the New Jersey Supreme Court declined to hear the case. The issue before the federal court is whether the state’s residency requirement for state Senate candidates violates the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment as applied to Lewis.

Weird Al’s ‘Alpocalypse’ shows he still has it Jamie carbone a&e writer

Weird Al has always been a fact of life for me. Every couple of years, the curly-haired mocker releases a new album and, ever since I’ve had an allowance of my own, I’ve made buying his albums a priority. His latest release, “Alpocalypse,” may not be perfect, but there is still plenty of parody goodness for fans to enjoy. “Alpocalypse” features 12 songs, five of which were released on Al’s 2009 EP “Internet Leaks” and seven new titles, with the whole album full of the sort of songs longtime fans would expect. One of the more entertaining tracks is titled “TMZ,” a parody of Taylor Swift’s “You Belong to Me,” which not only does the original song justice but also wonderfully mocks

celebrity gossip company TMZ. Besides Swift, other parodied bands include B.o.B, the White Stripes and T.I. Although only about half of the songs parody a specific title from these artists, the rest of them pulling multiple elements artists are known for. “CNR,” which was originally released on “Internet Leaks,” is another shining light of entertainment, as it not only features a strong representation of the White Stripes’ style but also elevates camp actor Charles Nelson Reilly to Chuck Norris-levels of manliness. In some instances, Al actually seems to have made a song that is better than the original. His version of Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way,” titled “Perform this Way,” actually has more creative lyrics, although the music video can cause nightmares. Unfortunately,not every song is up to Al’s usual

caliber. This album’s polka parody, “Polka Face,” has a bit of a weak start, and, although it soon gets better, it still isn’t as entertaining the polka medleys featured on past albums. Also, his Miley Cyrus parody, “Party in the CIA” just seems kind of unoriginal as songs go, as if it was only added to the album as an afterthought and, with more time, could have been something better. “Craigslist,” another song originally from “Internet Leaks,” is a great parody of The Doors’ style, but isn’t exactly topical and fills me with worry that Al’s younger fans simply won’t get it. While in the past I have gone out of my way to always purchase Weird Al’s CDs, this time around I couldn’t resist picking up the album on iTunes as it comes with 10 music videos as well, an impressive amount considering there are only 12 songs.

Alpocalypse

Al Yankovich

The parodies on Weird Al’s new album prove the comedian still has his humorous edge. For those who already love Al’s music this album is a smart purchase and it does a solid job, giving new fans an idea of what the artist’s work is typically like. I just wish there was a new Star Wars parody.

Tests show Winehouse drug-free in autopsy LONDON (AP) Amy Winehouse had no illegal drugs in her system when she died, and it is still unclear what killed the singer, her family said Tuesday. The family said in a statement that toxicology tests showed “alcohol was present” in the singer’s body but it hasn’t yet been determined if it contributed to her death. The 27-year-old soul diva, who had battled drug and alcohol addiction for years, was found dead in her London home on July 23, and an initial post-mortem failed to determine the cause of death. A statement released by spokesman Chris Goodman on the family’s behalf said “toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy’s system at the time of her death.” The statement did not mention whether any legal drugs were found. It said the family awaited the outcome of an inquest that is due to begin in October. Winehouse’s father, Mitch, has said his daughter had beaten her drug dependency

three years before her death, but he admitted she was still struggling to control her drinking after several weeks of abstinence. Mitch Winehouse told mourners at the singer’s July 26 funeral that she had said to him, “’Dad I’ve had enough of drinking, I can’t stand the look on your and the family’s faces anymore.’” The Winehouse family announced plans to establish a charitable foundation in the singer’s name to help people struggling with addiction although Mitch Winehouse has said the plans are on hold because someone else had registered the name Amy Winehouse Foundation. In her short lifetime, Winehouse frequently made headlines because of drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, destructive relationships and abortive performances. Her health often appeared fragile. In June 2008 and again in April 2010, she was taken to hospital and treated for injuries after fainting and falling at home. Her father said she had developed the lung disease emphysema from smoking cigarettes and crack, although

Amy Winehouse, soulful singer, showed no illegal drugs in her system during autopsy. her spokeswoman later said Winehouse only had “early signs of what could lead to emphysema.” She turned her tumultuous life and personal demons into songs such as “Rehab,” from her Grammy-winning album “Back to Black.” Her death prompted an outpouring of emotion from fans many of whom left flowers and offerings outside her house in north London’s

Camden neighborhood and from fellow musicians. Her final recording, a duet with Tony Bennett on “Body and Soul,” is due to released next month as a charity single. In Britain, inquests are held to establish the facts whenever someone dies violently or in unexplained circumstances. Winehouse’s inquest is due to begin Oct. 26 in London.

Producer of ‘Girls Gone Wild’ charged with battery LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors have charged “Girls Gone Wild” creator Joseph Francis with assault, false imprisonment and other misdemeanor crimes for allegedly attacking a woman he met at a Hollywood club, but the businessman said he has witnesses and evidence that will exonerate him. The charges filed against Francis and his bodyguard stem from an alleged January altercation that began when three women got into his limousine outside a popular nightspot. Prosecutors claim the women thought they were being driven to their car but were taken to Francis’ gated home, where a struggle ensued and he allegedly slammed one woman’s head on a tile floor. He faces to five years in jail if convicted, but Francis said in a phone interview Tuesday that he is innocent. He said he has eight eyewitnesses who will testify on his behalf and security footage from three cameras. “This did not happen,” he said. He claimed that police and the district attorney’s office rejected filing charges against him, but that City Attorney Carmen Trutanich is pursuing the case for political reasons. District Attorney’s spokeswoman Jane Robison said county prosecutors declined to file felony charges against Francis in late July, but referred the case to Trutanich’s office for possible misdemeanor charges. Francis said Trutanich is trying to prosecute him because the city attorney is considering a run for higher office, a claim that spokesman Frank Mateljan denies. “We filed charges based on the facts in the police report and nothing else,” he said. Trutanich has not yet

announced whether he will run for district attorney, but his name has been floated as a possible candidate. “He is dead in the water,” Francis said. “He is going to get embarrassed.” Francis’ friend, Mark Rousso, said he was in the limo with the women, and that two of them started fighting with each other on the way to Francis’ home. “It was the other way around,” Rousso said. “Joe was trying to stop it.” Another woman, Madi Matichak, said she first met Francis at the club on the night of the incident and that the soft-porn mogul was upstairs when the girls resumed their fight in the driveway of his home. Francis’ bodyguard, Vagram Gegdzhyan, had offered to give them a ride home but called them a cab after one of the women hit him, Matichak said. Both Francis and Gegdzhyan turned themselves in to police on Monday and were freed on bail. They were scheduled to appear for an arraignment on Sept. 16. Gegdzhyan, who is also accused of impersonating a peace officer after allegedly flashing a sheriff’s deputy’s badge in the limo, could be jailed for up to six years if convicted. In 2008, Francis pleaded no contest to child abuse and prostitution charges in Florida after spending nearly a year in jail. He later won a civil case filed by women who claimed he had caused them emotional distress by making them flash their breasts for some of his “Girls Gone Wild” videos. The following year he was sentenced to time served and a year of probation after pleading guilty to filing false income tax returns and bribing Nevada jail workers.

If you are attached, socialize as a couple more. CANCER understands you.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) HHHHH You are all smiles, just because. Others might test their boundaries, especially if they have been considering crossing one lately. The unexpected could cause quite a reaction. Try to detach before you react. Take the space needed to form a response. Tonight: Whatever makes you smile.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) HHH Pressure builds once more. Unless you have learned ways of releasing stress, you could act up in an unexpected manner. You will take manipulation personally.

Pet owners need to provide care, shelter Owning a pet can bring much joy to a person’s life. Pets can be loyal companions and provide that kind of friendship when no one else can. But before taking the step toward getting a dog, cat or any other animal, consider the amount of care that is required. People who own pets that aren’t cared for are a burden on the rest of the community. Pets that are not spayed or neutered can result in stray animals

wandering the streets. These animals usually starve and are generally malnourished. Others may become rabid, which presents a major threat to everyone in the area. While the step to owning a pet is not as rash as adopting a child, the basic principles do apply. Animals must have a proper diet, exercise, training and at some point will require medical care. This doesn’t mean that own-

ing a pet isn’t an option for a college student, they should simply make sure caring for the pet will be possible. Places are available for assistance with pet care. Morgantown Veterinary Care, located on North Main Street, offers students a 10 percent discount on Wednesdays for visits. The Mountaineer Spay Neuter Assistance Program is dedicated to educating people about the importance of spay-

ing and neutering, while providing vouchers to those in need. Vouchers are accepted in many locations in the area, including Morgantown Veterinary Care. For more information on assistance for pet care call the Monongalia County Humane Society at 304-296-6247. All pet owners must consider spaying or neutering their pets for many reasons. zz spaying or neutering

helps fight overpopulation zz It is a cheaper option than caring for a litter of kittens or puppies zz Usually pets are better behaved However, no matter what the angle, pets are expensive and only those who have the resources to care for them should be an owner. Take care of your animals for the sake of our community.

Partying can be a great time, but must be done safely

iman hasan correspondent

In the aftermath of FallFest, those new to the night life of Morgantown have likely picked up some tips for how to go out on the town and remain safe. However, one night isn’t nearly enough time to learn how to party safely. Judging the actions of students on Monday night, it’s apparent they should exercise more caution. First and foremost, one

must be prepared. This includes picking a suitable night, preferably on the weekend when all studying and homework is completed. Weeknights are also acceptable if one doesn’t have morning classes or happens to be really good at waking up early. Bring essentials such as a student ID, drivers license, adequate contraception and some extra cash in case of emergency. It’s also a good idea for students to have a phone charged and on hand at all times throughout the night in order to be easily reached in case of an emergency.

Choosing the right people to go out with is also key to having a safe outing. It’s best to go out in groups of at least two or three, preferably with close friends or otherwise trustworthy people. This way, everyone can keep an eye on each other and make sure everyone else parties responsibly. Always designate a driver in the group who should stay sober throughout the night never assume anyone will be sober enough to drive at the end of the night after drinking. Also, in case the designated driver gets drunk, one should always have someone trust-

worthy to call, such as a family member or close friend. Pay attention to late-night bus routes or even a calling a taxi service would work, but make sure to have some cash. When it comes to actually partying, it’s important to pick the right place to do so. If one is new to partying, it’s best to avoid frat parties and other large, anonymous house parties. Partying in a familiar environment, such as a friend’s place of residence, is usually more fun and much safer than partying in a house full of strangers. If drinking, students should know their limits.

A first-time drinker should remember to start slowly and not to drink on an empty stomach. One should always pour his or her own drinks and refrain from drinking once drunk. It’s also a good idea for one to keep an eye on his or her group of friends and make sure they don’t make bad decisions. Clubs, especially are an area calling for caution for new students. Don’t be afraid to refuse to dance with a stranger, especially if that person is, well, a little too close. Also, refuse drinks offered by strangers, whether they’re

for free or for a price. And, of course, wherever one goes out to party, one should try to leave before 2 a.m. which is usually when people begin to travel home. Cutting a night of partying short is well worth avoiding the danger of staying out too late and having other issues. If someone gets injured or experiences alcohol poisoning, call 911 and seek immediate medical attention. Following these tips is a good start to partying in Morgantown, especially for new students who aren’t familiar with the ways of the nightlife. Party on, but most of all, be safe.

Tea Party blocks progress for all, even themselves joshua segall arizona daily wildcat

It’s no secret the Tea Party we all hear so much about isn’t such a grand party after all. Many popular news outlets make the Tea Party seem like a stubborn group of Americans who try to derail the supposed bipartisan support that exists in Washington D.C., and to some extent, they’re right. On the other hand, few realize the actual core values that the Tea Party stands for. There is more to the party than simply a bunch of people who are “mad as hell.” The Tea Party started as a grassroots campaign to restore common sense and small gov-

DA

ernment in America. A simple glance at their mission statement outlines the three core values of the party: fiscal responsibility, limited government and free markets. Not surprisingly, these are values most anyone can identify with. That’s how parties make themselves attractive to voters, by reaching them on levels that most anyone can agree with. While the Tea Party attempts to align itself with the Boston Tea Party we all learned about in social studies, it seems to miss the point. Somewhere along the way, many of the Tea Partiers began to view the Boston Tea Paty purely as an act of stubbornness, as opposed to an act of dissent aimed at a greater good. It doesn’t help that the key figures of leadership in the party are less than desirable.

Often considered the top figurehead of the Tea Party movement, former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin has seen the shortcomings of her career far outweigh her successes. Although she was Alaska’s first female governor and credited with helping restructure Alaska’s fiscal policies, she also notoriously butchered the English language and established herself as a vapid Republican vice presidential candidate who flip-flopped stances and had a blatant lack of knowledge on popular issues. Don’t forget that her decision to be a reality TV star did not earn her any political clout, either. Along with Palin, 2012 Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann is also creating public image problems for the Tea Party. Like her counterpart, she too has been credited with

numerous verbal slip-ups very early in her campaign. Many of her speeches are filled with strong passion, but her delivery has made her an instant turnoff to many. She constantly credits herself with things she has done and often lacks real solutions to the problems we face today. With the 2012 Republican presidential race starting to pick up the pace, the Tea Party poses an imminent threat to the Republican Party’s election hopes. President Barack Obama won his 2008 election through an upsurge in young voters. Unfortunately, the Tea Party does not appeal to this demographic. To make things worse, many people from all age groups can’t relate and generally disapprove of the party. By rousing so much displeasure,

the Tea Party is essentially aiding the re-election chances for THE DAILY ATHENAEUM President Obama. The best thing Tea Partiers could do is back away from being the center of attention. The Tea Party is only serving to inadvertently aid the other side and worsen the chances for change in Washington, D.C. The Tea Party has a great underlying initiative to restore the values of the United States of America. The cold hard truth is that government has grown too large, and we are fiscally irresponsible. While the Tea Party should be commended on their values, it is time that they take a Become our fan on Facebook! step back from the spotlight. Time has come to part ways with their standoffish and anger-inducing behaviors. They must allow real change to happen.

6’6 240 releases next Mountaineer anthem by jake potts a&e editor

West Virginia University football – the pride of this team cannot simply be put into words, but local rapper 6’6 240 recently attempted to put this pride into lyrical form. 6’6 240’s single “Gold and Blue” is the sixth in line of previous WVU pride songs released years before. Each song has particular focus on players, coaches and anticipations for the upcoming football season. Involved in the Morgantown rap game for years, 6’6 240 has made a name for himself throughout the music scene. One of the largest topics in 240’s lyrics are the West Virginia University Mountain-

eers and the pride he feels for them. “Writing about the football team just makes sense to me,” 240 said. “Being from West Virginia, I know the pride people feel for those guys. It’s indescribable.” The lyrics of the song refer to certain aspects of the football team that listeners can relate to. Highlighted players, the coaching staff changes and the new style of the team are topics 6’6 240 touches on during his single. “There’s been a lot of changes made to the football team within the last year,” 6’6 240 said. “The Mountaineers are going to have an entire new style this year, and it’s looking to be a good one. Hopefully this song helps pump everyone up for the season.”

Since the focal point of the single is Mountaineer football, the tailgates at the opening home game are the perfect place to showcase it. The rapper will be performing his single at the Tent City tailgate hosted by 96.1 FM WKWS radio station. Not only will 6’6 240 be present, the cheerleaders and the “Pride of West Virginia” Mountaineer Marching Band will be in attendance along with WVU sports announcer Tony Caridi. With the music video for the single in the works, 6’6 240 and DJ Monstalung felt the tailgate would be the perfect opportunity to capture footage for the video. Students at the event will be captured on film and premiered in the music video. Two years ago, 6’6 240 was

Ace Beanz releases new album ‘The Growth’ by jake potts a&e editor

Morgantown is known for many things – football, beer, burning furniture and a music scene incomparable to any other. Local rapper Ace Beanz has been a driving force in the music scene for years, and has recently released his second album, “The Growth.” Beanz released the album with the criticism of his first taken into consideration, and the title holds a special meaning to the rapper. “The title of the album, ‘The Growth,’ means a whole lot more than just the music,” Beanz said. “It’s about life, it’s about becoming a man. It’s about everything.” With the release of his first album, the criticism coming in was in regards to the sounds of the songs all being too similar.

Taking that into consideration, Beanz teamed up with a handful of producers including DJ Monstalung, 9-5, Sean Thriller and Bacon Beats. “Working with those guys was awesome,” Beanz said. “We got a whole lot of different sounds that span to pretty much everything.” Eric Jordan, aka DJ Monstalung, was excited about Beanz’s choice of variation. “Beanz has always been known for his street anthem, but he’s starting to get to some club stuff,” Jordan said. “The tracks are all over the place in sound, which helps tie in the album title.” One of the most popular tracks, “My Zone,” features local rapper 6’6 240. “It was awesome to see the two work together,” Jordan said. “6’6 has a big name, so it helps get the album out even more.”

showcased at a tailgate event and expects a similar atmosphere for this year’s event. “The tailgate back then was crazy. The students loved the music, and the pride for the football team was everywhere,” the rapper said. “I don’t expect anything less this year. Morgantown’s always crazy for football.” Eric Jordan, aka DJ Monstalung, was impressed with the speed in which the song caught on. “We’ve had the song up on the internet for not very long, and we already have 8,000 plays on SoundCloud,” Jordan said. The Mountaineer footballbased song “Gold and Blue” by 6’6 240 is now available for purchase on iTunes. jakob.potts@mail.wvu.edu

The newest night club in Morgantown, O2, is located in the space formerly occupied by Club 228 on Walnut Street downtown.

Jake Potts A&e editor

To be successful in college, the student must be able to balance a healthy schedule of academic discipline while remembering to relax and enjoy the college life, as well. Fortunately, while residing in Morgantown, to make sure the latter of the two is covered you don’t have to walk far to find some good, wholesome entertainment. And by that I mean flashing lights, loud music, plenty to drink and all the company a college student could need. Located on and around High Street are several of the hot spots college students flock to. One of the previously most popular clubs on our tour, 228 has recently been replaced by

a new club, O2. Since it’s the same building and will probably carry the reputation 228 once held, it is a club based on dancing. For members of the crowd over 21, alcohol is available for purchase. The music choices are always up-to-date and popular with the audience, which makes for a great place to dance the night away. Across the street, Shooters offers an experience that is unique in itself. While part of the club is designated for dancing, another part of the club is more relaxed and makes the atmosphere more like a bar, which is one of the things that attracted sophomore business major Kelly Kramarik. “The fact that not only did the club have a great dance scene, but it had a place that was a lot more chill and relaxed. It just made it the universal place to spend a week-

end night,” Kramarik said. Taylor Mitchell, sophomore pharmacy major, was attracted to the activities other than dancing or drinking. “There are pool tables and foosball tables, which makes it easy to be entertained if you don’t feel like dancing,” Mitchell said. With pool tables, foosball, a full bar and plenty of dance space, Shooters is one of the most popular clubs for students of all ages. Right up the road from Shooters, De Lazy Lizard has made its name among students of higher ages. The club is for only students 21 and over, so the outdoor area of De Lazy Lizard has made the drinking environment unique to anything else in Morgantown. With drink specials every night and a calmer atmosphere, this bar has made itself one of the more highly acclaimed places for students not looking to dance. Karma, also located on High Street, has a unique feature in the layout of the club. The dancing area is increased with a three-floor design, there are two bars and more available room to dance. Continuing up the path, our tour ends with one of the most popular clubs throughout Morgantown. The Cellar has laid claims as one of the most publicized clubs in the area, and it has paid off. On any given Wednesday night, the line for The Cellar wraps around the side of the building with hundreds of students waiting to gain access. Michael Salvo, a sophomore journalism major, favors The Cellar over any location in Morgantown. “There’s nothing crazier than being in The Cellar on a Wednesday night. The music is insane, it’s always packed and it’s almost impossible to have a bad time,” Salvo said. “It’s definitely the best place to be on a Wednesday night.” With the goal of good grades and high academic success as the focal point of all West Virginia University students, it’s good to have an outlet where we can get away from the books and homework for a while. Being close by to clubs that cover every base of what a college student is looking to do, High Street is the perfect place to escape the stresses of studies and spend an evening unwinding and relaxing. jakob.potts@mail.wvu.edu

West Virginia offense will help defense More than likely, West Virginia University’s defense will not match the numbers it put up last year. The Mountaineers ranked second in the nation in points allowed per game (12.8), third in total yards per game (251.3) and second in total rushing yards allowed (1,021). The defense lost seven starters from last year, and several of them are on or competing to make an NFL roster this year. However, I believe the drop off on the defensive side of the ball will not be as drastic as people might think. Here’s why: The 3-3-5 defense (also known as the 3-3 stack) is built for a fast and usually smaller unit, which WVU has compared to last year. It sports three down lineman, three linebackers and five defensive backs. The defense tries to confuse the opposing offense with its blocking schemes. The front eight of the defense (the eight players closest to the line of scrimmage) must be physical, create a pass rush and keep the offensive line occupied. This year’s team is much less experienced, at least on the defensive line and line backing corps, but it does have some depth and a rotation of players. If they play well enough in the system it could be brighter on the other side for the defense as a whole. Of course, it brings back senior Bruce Irvin, redshirt senior Julian Miller, who led the team in sacks in 2010 with 14 and nine, respectively. As long as these two stay healthy, there won’t be any problems at the defensive end positions. The D-line also has redshirt sophomore Will Clarke who has great upside, redshirt junior J.B. Lageman, junior Shaq Rowell and redshirt senior Josh Taylor, who will all contribute to the defensive line for Jeff Casteel’s defense. Rowell, a junior college transfer from Iowa Western Community College, is a big body. At 6-foot-4, 308 pounds, he has shown great potential to contribute on the defensive line since the start of camp. The linebackers are very thin from an experience standpoint. Redshirt senior Najee Goode is the only returning starting linebacker with any game-time experience and will have to lead the rest of the guys early in the season to avoid too many mistakes. That being said, practicing this spring and summer against head coach Dana Holgorsen’s new high speed offense definitely has its upside. The defense should be able to stay organized, focused and communicate with each other because the offense pushes the ball so quickly in practice, motivating the players to stay on their toes and be on the same page. The West Virginia defenses of the past have never gone up against anything as high powered and fast as Holgorsen’s offense during summer practices. Therefore, the young defense should be better prepared for the Big East offenses it will face this season. The line backer position is where the most question marks are right now, but it can only improve as the season goes on. Players like redshirt sophomore Tyler Anderson, sophomore Doug Rigg and junior Josh Francis will gain valuable experience against teams like LSU in week four and the entire Big East conference. There’s no question in my mind, the defense will take some time to gel together and play consistently. What defense is where it wants to be early in the season? Unless you were on the USC Trojan team from 2005, you probably won’t be as good as you can be three games into the season. The Mountaineer defense won’t be in the top 10 in the prime defensive categories in 2011, but they may do just as much as they have to in order to be a solid unit, surprise some people and rely on the offense to score a bunch of points. ben.gaughan@mail.wvu.edu

Trip overseas beneficial for young WVU basketball teams by michael carvelli

By John Terry

When a team only returns four players and has to break in as many new players as the West Virginia University men’s basketball team has to this coming season, it’s important to get as much time on the court as possible. This will, obviously, help the team gel and form good chemistry that will be much needed once the season starts. The Mountaineer freshmen and transfer students already got to do that a little this summer when they played in a Summer Pro-Am in Greentree, Pa., but the biggest bonus this young Mountaineer team has gotten has been in the last month or so, as they spent two weeks practicing together before playing five games in Europe. West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins said the trip was immensely successful, but admitted his team still has a lot to work on. “There’s so many things they’ve got to learn,” Huggins said. “You’ve got a whole bunch of guys out there that don’t know what they’re doing. It was those kinds of things.” The Mountaineers started their European Tour in Sicily, where they played two games against Naval Air Station Sigonella, winning 91-39 and 98-57, respectively. Afterwords, WVU entertained troops in Italy, taking on

The West Virginia University women’s basketball team had the opportunity to see the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the French Riviera in southern France and the Colosseum in Rome during its eight-day tour of France and Italy, but it wasn’t the sightseeing they were dwelling on. It was the three games and 10 NCAA-allowed summer practices. “It’s always nice to have those 10 practices, because 10 practices is big with such a young team,” said head coach Mike Carey. “Playing games and getting the film to evaluate the players is also an added benefit. It’s one thing to evaluate the players when they’re in high school, but it’s another thing when they are in your system.” The team went 2-1 in its three games, beating an athletic French all-star team 75-63 and splitting a two-game series with the Dutch National Team. Carey said the French team, the AMW all-stars, was very athletic and was able to mimic the athletic play from the Big East Conference. “They had some six-foot guards who could run the ball very well,” he said. Carey also said the Dutch were a much different type of team, comprised of older players with much more height. He was happy to be able to play a team with more experience

West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins said the Mountaineers’ trip to Italy will be good for his young team. Illinois in an exhibition game consisting of two 10-minute halves. The Mountaineers ran into some troubles, losing to the Fighting Illini 47-26. Huggins said a lot of the struggles were due to the inexperienced West Virginia team going up against things they hadn’t seen before, which was something he expected to happen at some point. “Illinois pressed us, and we didn’t handle the press very well,” Huggins said. “But in 10 days of practice, you’re trying to put them in a little bit of offense, and it’s hard in 10 days to work on press-breaker.’’ The men’s team finished its tour against two Italian professional club teams. It beat former Georgetown guard Austin Freeman and Fulgor Libertas Forli 90-67 before winning its finale, 74-64, against Basket Santarcangelo.

“In the last game, it was so hot in that gym and our guys had to play through some things,’’ Huggins said. “We were totally exhausted when the game was over, but that was good because it made us have to fight some adversity a little bit.’’ Huggins said the opportunity to not just play overseas, but to get to see some of the sights his team got to see during the trip, was an experience none of them will forget. As they had the opportunity to see the Vatican, the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, among other historic cities and landmarks. But it did give his team, especially the newcomers, a unique chance to get in-game experience with their future teammates. That alone, Huggins feels, could have improved

West Virginia head coach Mike Carey was happy with the way his team played in Europe. that was similar to a normal team. The Mountaineers fell to the Dutch National Team in the first game 54-52, but followed later that night with a dominating 60-32 win. “Even though they beat us the first game, we were able to turn around and beat them the second game, which I like to see,” Carey said. “But when you’re a young team like we are, it’s also a sign you’re going to be up and down.” Carey said they were given the option when planning the trip of playing weaker teams, but he wanted to play better teams that would prepare the team for Big East competition. Despite playing stronger teams, however, he was impressed with the play of his

Experienced offensive line ready to improve in 2011 by nick arthur sports writer

The 2011 West Virginia football team is full of new names and faces. From the head coach and most of the coaching staff, to seven new starters on defense, the Mountaineer football team will have a new look this season. The offensive line, however, should be no different. The group combines for 65 career starts. But, only two members will be playing the same position they started last season. Left guard Josh Jenkins was injured in the Spring Game and will miss the entire 2011 season after undergoing another knee surgery. This created a domino effect of changes across the line starting with the movement of last year’s starting right tackle, Jeff Braun, to left guard to replace the injured Jenkins. Braun, a junior, has been adjusting well to his new role

at guard. He credits a lot of this to the luxury of having two experienced players to each lean on. “With (Don) Barclay on my left and (Joe) Madsen on my right, we were in games together last year,” Braun said. “We kind of know what we’re thinking before the ball even snaps.” Barclay, who returns at left tackle, has appeared in 39 games in his career. He is the most experienced offensive lineman, and has been around long enough to know what preseason camp is all about. “Right now, we’re just trying to get better every day,” Barclay said. “We want to be the best, and that’s what we’re striving for.” Redshirt junior Joe Madsen returns at center. Madsen has started 25 games since 2009 and head coach Dana Holgorsen has been high on Madsen’s abilities ever since the spring. Even though Madsen

will be in a new offense this year, he feels his job may be a bit easier. “You’re able to be more physical,” Madsen said. “Instead of thinking about where you’re going, you’re kind of just like, there’s my guy and all I’ve got to do is get there and kill him.” To the right of Madsen will be Cross Lanes, W.Va., native Tyler Rader. Rader has patiently waited four seasons and, after earning a scholarship earlier in the summer, looks to be the clear starter at right guard. The only remaining position left on the offensive line is right tackle, coincidentally the only position yet to have a clear-cut starter. Redshirt sophomore Pat Eger has been competing with redshirt freshman Quinton Spain for all of camp for that final spot. Spain seemed to be the leader a few weeks ago, however, head coach Dana Hol-

Offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh talks with his linemen before doing a drill during practice. gorsen recently said this is no longer the case. “Pat Eger is playing better. That competition is far from over,” Holgorsen said. “He has moved ahead of Quinton Spain. We will continue to work on and evaluate that.” With solid progression from

the offensive line, Holgorsen’s offense may live up to its expectations this season. Madsen and his fellow “big eaters” will get their opportunity to do so starting Sept. 4 against Marshall. nicholas.arthur@mail.wvu.edu

Position change easy for Braun

Redshirt junior will move to guard after starting at tackle in ‘10 by nick arthur sports writer

When it was announced earlier this summer that left guard Josh Jenkins would miss the entire 2011 season after knee surgery, redshirt junior Jeff Braun knew what was in store for him. Braun started at right tackle last season for West Virginia, but will make the switch to left guard to replace the injured Jenkins. And if that isn’t enough of a difficult transition, Braun also had to adjust to a new offense and offensive line coach, Bill Bedenbaugh. But the offense isn’t Braun’s concern. “I think it’s a lot easier, actually,” said Braun. “The new offense for me doesn’t really do much. We had similar plays last year and you use the same technique over and over again,” Braun said. It seems the position change has been the bigger challenge than the offensive change. “The hardest adjustment for me was going from a right-side to a left-side standpoint, just because it’s kind of like learning how to write with your left hand,” Braun said. “You have to switch things in your mind and be able to go off a certain foot.” Head coach Dana Holgorsen brought in Bedenbaugh, who served as Arizona’s offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator, to replace Dave Johnson as the Mountaineers’ offensive line coach. Bedenbaugh coached with Holgorsen at Texas Tech under former head coach Mike Leach. Braun has found some coaching differences between Bedenbaugh and his former offensive line coach. “Dave Johnson was more of a technical guy,” Braun said. “Coach Bedenbaugh is still technical, but he also get’s after you. You mess up once and he will be on your case, which is a good thing for us.” After admitting Bedenbaugh’s coaching style is more assertive,

WVU knows it can improve after Gold-Blue scrimmage by sebouh majarian sports writer

FILE PHOTO

Redshirt junior Jeff Braun is one of three returning starters on the West Virginia offensive line this season. Braun will be switching from right tackle to left guard in 2011. Braun said he still uses many of the tips Coach Johnson taught him a year ago. “With a coaching change you’ve got to take every bit of information from one coach to the new coach, and try to make yourself a better overall player,” he said. With Braun moving from right tackle to left guard, there obviously has to be someone to take over at his old position. Redshirt sophomore Pat Eger and redshirt freshman Quinton Spain have been battling for the starting position throughout camp. Braun said he knows what the two are going through as they compete with each other for the job, and had some advice to offer them. “Every day, they’ve got to get better and try to get better at the little things. Neither of them can take the reps for granted. If you’re out there, you need to work and try to get better.” It is necessary for all members of the offensive line to be on the

same page prior to the snap and through the duration of the play this season. The Westminster, Md., native explained Holgorsen’s offense will place more responsibility on the offensive line, particularly with communication. But Braun said the young guys on the right side won’t be affected too much by this. “There is more communication, but it’s still a little simplified,” Braun said. “The center makes the majority of the calls in this offense. Last season, all of us could make a call if we felt that we needed it, but now, a lot of it is on the center.” Conveniently, the Mountaineers have an experienced center in Joe Madsen. Madsen has started at that position each of the past two seasons. And, even if Madsen misses a beat, the stout Braun will be one spot to his left to lend a helping hand. nicholas.arthur@mail.wvu.edu

Facing tough competition is how the West Virginia University volleyball team finished last season, so it’s no shock they opened the 2011 season the same way. The Mountaineers opened their season with the GoldBlue scrimmage Sunday evening with the blue team sweeping all five sets from the gold team (25-23, 25-14, 25-16, 2518 and 15-10). Head coach Jill Kramer teamed Anthony Botsch, Will Cornell and Matt Ferragonio who practice with the team with all members of the university’s club volleyball team on the blue team and rotating players from the gold team. The second-year coach wanted the team to play some quality competition to prep them before the WVU Invitational this weekend. “It’s a chance for them to showcase what they’ve been working on to the fans,” said Kramer. “It also gives us a chance as a staff to sit down and assess, and say this is where we need to get better if we’re going to beat our opponent.” Instead of playing the usual best of five sets, the team played all five sets to give the athletes more repetitions with all the new faces. The Mountaineers endured a tough final stretch to close the 2010 season, as they lost seven of the last eight meets, leaving them just out of the Big East tournament. “I’d like to see them fight more when it gets rough, but we have to keep putting them in situations where they can get after it,” Kramer said. The team has high hopes for this season, as it will bring in a slew of new players to join nine members of last year’s squad. “For us being out on the court for the first time, I haven’t

been playing them in a ton of playing situations,” Kramer said. “I can see the stuff we need to work on within game situations and that’s only going to help us.” Senior Serinna Russo, excited to finally get back on the court and see some game action, was impressed with what she saw. “I wouldn’t say we were rusty but now we know exactly in game situations what our strengths are and what our weaknesses are,” Russo said. The former outside hitter admires the work ethic of commitment from all the new members of the team. “They came in busting their butts and they’re doing really well right now and they’ll really help our team a lot,” she said. Kramer complimented Russo by calling her a second coach on the court. Russo has arguably made the biggest adjustment this summer, switching from the offensive-minded outside hitter to the defensive position. “I like the position and being the leader in the back row. It’s a fun position to play and I’m excited for it this year,” Russo said. Even after the scrimmage, Kramer was left scratching her head as to who was going where on her depth chart. She said she might have to adjust her lineups as she figures out who she can depend on. “We always say consistency brings trust,” she said. “If they can bring it consistently to practice, then we can trust they’ll do it in a match.” Kearney and Oosterlaken didn’t participate in the scrimmage. Kearney recovers from a slight ankle sprain, while the Dutch sophomore recovers from an ACL injury which will put her on the sideline her for the year. sebouh.majarian@mail.wvu.edu

The veteran head coach said all of the players, even the two walkons who were invited on the trip, got to play and freshmen Aaron Brown and Keaton Miles started games for the Mountaineers. Even with the added experience, Huggins said the freshmen still aren’t quite ready yet. “They’re overwhelmed. The truth is, they’re overwhelmed with how much they have to learn,” he said. “They’re also overwhelmed with how hard they have to play for an extended period of time.’’

younger players, saying they exceeded all of his expectations before the trip. “They’re going to have to play a really major role,” Carey said. “I thought for the first three games and 10 practices they did a really good job.” Even though Carey’s primary focus on the trip was on the court, he also said the trip allowed the team and staff to see a different part of the world. “It’s an opportunity of a lifetime.
