Campaign to address intentional fires by lydia nuzum staff writer
Morgantown City Council members were presented with the dangers of local malicious fires during a Committee of the Whole meeting Tuesday evening. Lauren Paslawski, a representative of “Sunnyside-Up,” a campus neighborhood revitalization program, introduced the “Learn Not to Burn” campaign.
The City of Morgantown has led the nation in the number of intentional fires since 1997, and the campaign will serve as an initiative designed to make a change, Paslawski said. “Intentional fires have become a part of the Morgantown community,” she said. Recent trends suggest 2011 could be the record year for malicious fires. “After the Osama bin Laden killing, we’ve seen an increase in the number of malicious
fires started this year,” Paslawski said. The target demographic for the campaign is white male students between the ages of 18 and 22 who live off-campus, Paslawski said. More women have been involved in recent incidents, though, she said. The incidents are influenced by secondary factors such as tradition, perceived legality and “mob mentality,” Paslawski said.
“Alcohol abuse is the main factor,” she said. “It’s been shown that substance abuse and destructive behavior go hand-in-hand.” More than 400 people have been cited for malicious burning in Morgantown since 1997, and West Virginia University students can face suspension or expulsion for being cited for an intentional fire.

Director hired to improve recruitment
Hearts of Gold
by mackenzie mays city editor
West Virginia University has named Stephen Lee the executive director of admissions and recruitment. Lee has served more than 20 years in admissions services and recently worked as the Director of Admissions at Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania. Stephen Lee Now, as a new member of the WVU staff working with a $123,750 salary, he plans to use that experience to better recruit prospective students and challenge the local competition. “I’m able to bring a diverse perspective to evaluate the recruitment programming we have, our outreach to prospective students and the use of technology,” Lee said. “I’m going to try to do whatever I can to keep up with the competition that’s out there.” Though, in the past, the University’s admissions and recruitment departments have functioned separately, Lee is optimistic about this year’s fusion of the two offices. “Our outreach to students and processing of their applications can be a big job, and we’ll work on identifying improvements in both areas,” he said. “My hope is to move the office forward to meet the challenges of the future.” With approximately 30,000 students at the University, Lee said he was “pleasantly surprised” by the small-town feel of the community. “I anticipated a large university culture,

Seven dogs in training to assist disabled By Ben Scott Correspondent
West Virginia University’s Division of Animal and Nutritional Sciences has been working with Hearts of Gold, a service dog training program, to assist people with disabilities for the past five years. Hearts of Gold trains and places dogs to help individuals with mobility impairment, post traumatic stress disorder and other health conditions. Seven dogs are enrolled in the WVU program; five golden
retrievers and two poodles. Golden retrievers are used because of their friendly nature, while poodles make for good service dogs because they don’t shed, said Lindsey Parenti, a behavior analyst and cofounder of Hearts of Gold. “It’s a two-year program and starts when the dogs are only eight weeks old,” Parenti said. Since the program got its start at the University in 2006, students have successfully trained and placed three dogs into full-time service. Training requires the dogs

learn more than 100 commands, including opening doors and turning on lights. “Training the dogs can be really tough,” said Anne Foreman, a doctoral behavioral analysis student who teaches the program. “Dogs really just want to play, and here we are telling them to be still and perfect.” Foreman said though most trainers are WVU students, the most important trait to have is simple. “The best advice I can give on training dogs is to be patient
and love dogs,” Foreman said. Parenti said though trainers have a passion for animals, the process isn’t always easy due to funding and safety limitations. “We have to rely on donations, so getting dogs suited to this isn’t always easy,” Parenti said. “Also, if a dog growls or snaps at a kid, it’s immediately removed from the program.” For more information, visit www.humananimalbond.org. email@example.com

“Science on Tap,” a lecture series hosted at bars across Morgantown, kicks off today at the Morgantown Brewing Company. The program debuted last year and aims to promote scientific knowledge in a more social environment. “We provide a place where the public can learn and talk about exciting new things in science,” said Jim Belanger, WVU associate biology professor. “Science on Tap” is one of many “science cafes” throughout the country, which attempt to provide an interesting learning atmosphere outside the classroom. “A science cafe is a place where people can learn and discuss interesting ideas in a friendly, informal setting,” Belanger said. The program encourages students and faculty to take advantage of the opportunity to have conversations about science in everyday life. “‘Science on Tap’ was created to put a human face on scientists. We’re not elitist intellectuals who have no idea of the real world,” Belanger said. “We like to sit down over a beer and chat too.” Anne Perez, a graduate student in the biology department said the laid-back atmosphere helps students get to know the subject material. “The topics have been really engaging and the

White Hall scheduled to welcome students in Spring by lydia nuzum staff writer
Renovations to White Hall, the future home of the West Virginia University Department of Physics, is scheduled to be completed by the spring semester. Earl Scime, chair of the WVU physics department, said renovations to the building will provide a variety of opportunities for both students and staff in the department, after facing restrictions while temporarily studying in Hodges Hall. “It’s simply a fantastic opportunity for us. Different difficulties in Hodges have constrained physics research in the past,” Scime said. “We have every hope that White Hall will greatly benefit our research.” The $30.3 million renovation on White Hall began in April 2010. White Hall is located on
University Avenue on the downtown campus, and was originally constructed in 1942 as the Mineral Industries Building. Faculty can move in anytime between mid-October and December, but more complex renovations will continue. John Sommers, construction manager for Facilities Management, said workers will begin to install office furniture and classroom furnishings as early as Thursday. Labs should be ready and stocked with proper equipment by mid-September, he said. “It’s really beginning to take good shape,” Sommers said. Construction on White Hall began in early 2010, and renovations on the site have been ongoing for about 17 or 18 months, he said. The major work still to be completed in the building includes the mounting of hard-
ware and the transfer of lab equipment. The building has undergone construction on classrooms, offices and research labs, all of which will be energy and water efficient and improve indoor environmental air quality. Research labs and classrooms conducting sensitive research will be climate-controlled, Scime said. Also, a clean lab featuring state-of-the-art air filtering systems will be incorporated into the building. Furthermore, an innovative glass wall system with outside access will be available on each floor so that new equipment can be moved quickly with minimal interruption to research, Scime said. “It’s going to be a great opportunity for the physics department,” he said. firstname.lastname@example.org

Construction continues inside and outside of White Hall on West Virginia University’s downtown campus. The Hall’s renovation is expected to be completed in the Spring 2012 semester.
Heinz Endowment to end support for some gas research at Univ. of Pittsburgh PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Heinz Endowment is looking for a new home for some of its Marcellus Shale gas research programs at the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Healthy Environments and Communities, endowment officials told The Associated Press. Among the programs is FracTracker, an online resource that examines environmental issues around drilling, as well as new ways to manage citizen advocacy programs. Other programs include technical support for citizen water-monitoring and air-monitoring and the documentation of the effects of the shale operations on people living nearby. “We’re exploring a whole
bunch of different options,” said Caren Glotfelty, director of the Heinz environment program. “We’ve got a lot of conversations going.” Glotfelty said Heinz is committed to FracTracker. “It’s really, really important for us that this tool function even better than it has in the past,” she said, adding that might mean dividing parts of the research and outreach work among different groups or institutions. The endowment board will vote on the issue in October. News of the split first appeared in the Pittsburgh City Paper. Glotfelty said Heinz came to the decision after “watching
the comfort level of the graduate school around the amount of community outreach” that goes with FracTracker. In a related development, Allison Schlessinger, a spokeswoman for Pitt’s School of Health Sciences, told The AP that Bernard Goldstein, the interim director of the Center for Healthy Environments and Communities, has resigned, just a few months after the resignation of professor Conrad Volz. Volz, who resigned in April, was a critic of the natural gas industry and claimed its drilling operations were contaminating drinking water. Goldstein, the former dean of Pitt’s Graduate School of

Public Health, said Heinz’s decision was a factor in his resignation, but not the only one. He said he had already planned on retiring from teaching at the end of September. “I took this on the basis of a short-term thing,” he said of the job. Goldstein acknowledged that Pitt may not have been the right long-term fit for FracTracker. “My point is, in academia we’re really much better at developing things. Our strength is not in maintaining things over the long term,” he said. “It was clearly something that Heinz was less willing to have us do.” Goldstein has also spoken out about Marcellus gas drill-

ing, publishing op-eds on the issue in local papers. “I don’t understand why we’re rushing ahead so quickly” with drilling before a scientific consensus is established on the possible health effects, he said. Energy companies have identified major reserves of natural gas throughout the Marcellus Shale, a formation that lies under much of New York and Pennsylvania, and parts of Maryland, Ohio and West Virginia. Drilling in the shale has raised concerns about the use of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, which injects chemical-laced water to break up the shale and allow natural gas to escape.
Environmental groups and the Environmental Protection Agency have expressed concerns about how the process affects water, soil and air quality. The industry insists it is safe. Schlessinger said Pitt and CHEC will continue to research natural gas and its impacts on public health. “We do not stop people from advocating a position. But we have to err on the side of factbased, evidence based science,” Schlessinger said. But “I’m not sure where the funding is going to come from.” Schlessinger said Bruce Pitt, chair of the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, will be CHEC’s new interim director.
During the council meeting, the Morgantown Fire Department presented an initiative which will allow firefighters and responders to charge arsonists with third or fourth degree arson — both felony offenses. In addition to the campaign against malicious burning, a “Mainstreet Morgantown” campaign was announced. The non-profit organization
is dedicated to preserving the cultural and historic aspects of the community and plans to construct a Morgantown Marketplace on Spruce Street. The next regular meeting of the Morgantown city council will be held on Sept. 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the Morgantown Municipal Building.

but everyone’s very down-toearth and friendly,” Lee said. “It’s the perfect blend of all the benefits of a big university with the feel of a small university.” WVU officials used a search firm to secure Lee’s position. After conducting a nationwide search, officials found Lee to be the best fit, said Brenda Thompson, associate vice president for enrollment management. “After just recently combining the offices of recruitment and admissions, we knew it

Residences cleared as fire threatens Oklahoma City OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A spectacular wildfire fueled by extremely dry conditions and a stiff wind ripped through several acres of northeast Oklahoma City on Tuesday, prompting authorities to evacuate residents from hundreds of homes. The wildfire was in a sparsely populated and heavily wooded area of the city. Bursts of flame rose amid thick black smoke as oil-packed cedar trees ignited, giving gawkers a stunning view even from blocks away. Utility poles lit up like matchsticks, and power was out to more than 7,000 homes and businesses. The fire destroyed several homes and burned through four square miles, said fire department spokesman Mark Woodard. “We’re trying to control the head of the fire,” but a south wind gusting up to 25 mph combined with the tinder-dry conditions kept pushing firefighters back as the fire spread
to the east, Woodard said Tuesday night. Red Cross spokesman Rusty Surette said several hundred homes were evacuated and that about 10 people were staying in a shelter that opened at an elementary school. Children on school buses were also diverted to the school as the evacuation took hold Tuesday afternoon. Woodard said “several structures” burned but didn’t have a count of exactly how many homes were destroyed. A near unrelenting heat wave this summer made conditions ripe for grass fires, with Oklahoma City setting a record for the number of days in a year with temperatures above 100. “Conditions are very extreme,” said Fire Chief Keith Bryant. “Things will burn much more easily than they would at other times.” Smoke rolled northward from the fire, paralleling Interstate 35 in Oklahoma City’s

Stranded Vt. wedding guests airlifted by helicopter MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — At least a dozen wedding guests were airlifted by helicopter from a Vermont town of Pittsfield on Tuesday where they had been stranded since Tropical Storm Irene hit two days earlier, turning rivers into roiling flood waters that washed away the only road in town. “It was getting dicey,” said Scott Redler, 38, of Jersey City, N.J., who contracted one of the helicopter trips because his mother, a breast cancer patient, was running out of medication. The helicopter ferried out Redler, the chief strategic officer for trading firm T3 Live. com, his mother and father, his wife, and their 3-year-old child. “The town was in really, really bad shape. It was its own island, where you couldn’t get anything in and couldn’t get anything out. Houses were washed away,” he said. Marc Leibowitz and his fiance, Janina Stegmeyer, were in Germany, snowed in last Christmas when they got engaged and picked the Vermont inn for their rustic farm wedding. Now they were stranded again, with about 60 of their wedding guests. “Basically we had an unbelievable wedding. She told me on Saturday night it was the most perfect dream wedding she could have imagined,” said Leibowitz, 31, an artist from Brooklyn, N.Y. “And then on
Sunday morning the weather changed.” The group expected heavy rains but thought the brunt of the storm would miss the tiny town in the Green Mountains. Many of their friends thanked them for getting them out of New York City, the projected storm target, and into Vermont. “And then it hit,” Leibowitz said. The small Tweed Creek that ran in front of their bridal cottage at Riverside Farm bedand-breakfast rose rapidly on Sunday and flooded the bridesmaids’ studio apartment below with 5 feet of water. Leibowitz and his bride, 28, also from Brooklyn, decided they needed to get to the farm’s other inn, where relatives – many of Janina’s from Germany and in the U.S. for the first time – were staying. The couple rushed to finish brunch with some of their bridesmaids, despite the owners’ warning that the road was giving way and that they should move up the mountain. Their four-wheel drive rental car was able to make it over the bridge to the Amee Farm. “After we passed, the bridge collapsed,” Leibowitz said. All of the groomsmen and one of the bridesmaids were left behind at the inn, cut off from the road. On Monday morning, some of the groomsmen rigged up ladders to cross the stream

The newlyweds had planned to leave Thursday for their Hawaiian honeymoon. But they’ve been told that it could be seven to 10 days before Route 100 that goes through town is repaired. To pass the time, the couple and their wedding guests have pitched in around town, shoveling mud from homes, getting supplies to elderly residents living in the hills, and working at the Original General Store, which has become the central gathering place in town. Leibowitz said the general store’s owners have been cut
off from their own home and have been staying at the store overnight. By Tuesday, guests were picking vegetables from the farm to prepare for dinner. Townspeople, who didn’t have electricity or phone services, were encouraged to bring perishable food to the general store, where it could be stored in a generator-powered refrigerator. “There’s 60 of us in a town of 400 and we’re becoming a major drain on their resources,” Leibowitz said. Another 60 guests were able to leave safely before the storm worsened. To keep spirits up, they’ve been playing charades, and some of their musician friends who entertained at the wedding have been playing music at night.
ple near the evacuation zone to be ready to leave. Paramedics transported a 60-year-old woman in good condition after she was overcome with heavy smoke, said Emergency Management Services Authority spokeswoman
Lara O’Leary. Woodard said one firefighter was taken to the command post to be evaluated for what may have been heat exhaustion. Helicopters with the Oklahoma National Guard were brought to the scene to dump water from the air, Bryant said. A separate grass fire was reported near Bethel Acres, just east of the Oklahoma City metro area, said Jennifer Dawson at the Pottawatomie County Emergency Management Agency. In North Texas, dozens of elementary students at a camp and several towns were being evacuated Tuesday as a fast-moving wildfire raged at a lakeside community. The Texas Forest Service said the fire quickly spread to about 3,000 acres in Palo Pinto County, just four months after massive blazes scorched hundreds of thousands of acres.
Kansas ordered to resume funding for Planned Parenthood WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A federal judge ordered Kansas to immediately resume funding a Planned Parenthood chapter on the same quarterly schedule that existed before a new state law stripped it of all federal funding for non-abortion services. U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten on Tuesday rejected the state’s request that it pay Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri monthly and only for services provided. The judge also declined to order Planned Parenthood to post a bond in the event the state prevailed in the lawsuit. Planned Parenthood has sued to block a provision of the state budget preventing the organization from receiving any of the state’s share of federal family planning dollars. Marten wrote in his ruling that the intent of the court’s earlier order was to restore and maintain the prior status quo between the parties, a relationship that was based on quarterly installment payments of the federal money. He said the monthly reimbursement schedule the state wants would have the effect of undermining the clinic’s abil-
ity to maintain its current level of services. Planned Parenthood said last week that it would stop providing services at its clinic in Hays on Friday unless it was told it would soon receive the money. Friday would also have been last day the organization offered a sliding fee scale for low-income patients at its Wichita clinic. “The court finds no injury to the defendants in maintaining the prior payment schedule, as they will be providing funding in a manner consistent with prior practice between the parties, and to an organization which has consistently provided satisfactory family planning services,” Marten wrote in his ruling. Even if the court’s Aug. 1 temporary injunction is later overturned or modified, the residents of Hays and Wichita will be best assured of continued family planning services by maintaining the status quo, the judge said. The clinic had argued that Marten’s initial injunction required the state to maintain “the status quo” which would mean quarterly payments beginning in July at the start of the state’s fiscal year.
Special Forces impersonator in Md. gets 21 months Mutt’s BALTIMORE (AP) — For years, William Hillar’s tales about his exploits as an Army Green Beret and a puffed up resume helped him land jobs teaching counterterrorism and drug and human trafficking interdiction, but the scheme has now earned him 21 months in federal prison. Hillar, 66, of Millersville, pleaded guilty to wire fraud earlier this year and was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court. He must pay $170,000 in restitution to the law enforcement and first responder organizations and schools that hired him believing that he had spent 28 years in the U.S. Special Forces, reaching the rank of colonel. He must also perform 500 community service hours at Maryland’s veteran cemeteries. His scheme started to unravel when a skeptical veteran emailed members of the Special Forces community to see if anyone knew of Hillar, former Green Beret Jeff Hinton testified Tuesday. Hillar’s story was
suspicious because there were only a handful of colonels during the period Hillar claimed to have served, he said. Hinton, whose “Professional Soldiers” social networking site for Special Forces members has become a clearinghouse for people checking on possible fraudsters, filed Freedom of Information requests. When he learned that U.S. Special Operations Command had not heard of Hillar, he decided to expose him and warn the organizations that had hired him, he said. “The training he was giving them would most likely put people at risk,” he said. “Basically it’s worthless.” While Green Beret impostors are not uncommon, Hinton called Hillar the most prodigious fraud he has come across, noting that this case is the first he has seen result in jail time. Hillar’s trading on a reputation that’s “forged in blood” is reprehensible, dishonorable and disrespectful

to those who have served and died, he said. Hillar was paid more than $170,000 by state and local organizations across the country and the federal government – including the U.S. Army at Aberdeen Proving Ground, FBI Command College and various local divisions of the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs – to teach, lead seminars or speak since 1998, according to his plea agreement. Prosecutor Leo Wise argued for a prison term on the higher end of the sentencing guidelines, as a deterrent to others: 27 months. Hillar not only endangered first responders with worthless information, he also displaced qualified trainers,
Wise said. “He just could not resist embroidering himself into those tales,” Christopher said. “He needed to be the hero.”

HOROSCOPES BY JACQUELINE BIGAR
All smiles after a power nap.
tion. Tonight: Do your thing.
BORN TODAY This year, open up to life’s possibilities. You maintain a cautious attitude, especially concerning finances. A boss or parent might push you beyond your limits. Discussions and meetings play a role in your decision making. Detach, and you’ll gain even more of a perspective. If you are single, someone from a very different culture could become important. Ask yourself if you can accept this lifestyle before diving in. If you are attached, the two of you gain by detaching and walking in the other person’s shoes more often. LIBRA can be possessive.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) HHHH Be aware of a tendency to limit yourself or someone you live with. An investment might be slow to come to fruition. You might wonder what is happening with a family member. Don’t make any decisions until you get a sense of the big picture. Tonight: Play it cool.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) HHHH Zero in on what you want, and don’t sell yourself short. Meetings could be more important than you think. You draw many people toward you. An associate might be wanting more from a project. This rigidity makes you uncomfortable. Tonight: Where the action is.
LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) HHHH Keep conversations moving, despite an awkward moment or two. You can deal with others, but also look within. You might be a lot angrier than you realize. Verbalize what you think. At the same time, don’t push too hard. Tonight: Speak your mind.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) HHH Follow your instincts. Don’t be a back-seat driver, whether at work or in a social setting. Step up and lead. A partner could be a bit difficult, and no matter what you do, it makes no difference. Stay mellow and centered. Brainstorm with a trusted associate or friend. Tonight: Could be late.
ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) HHHH Allow a partner to take over. He or she might be overly serious and driven. Curb your temper at work or when dealing with others. Being hot under the collar simply doesn’t help. Allow greater giveand-take at home. Tonight: Go for something peaceful.
VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) HHHH Your finances could have you feeling restricted. You want to join a friend, but it will cost you. Keep a conversation involving your home and potential responsibility moving. Note fatigue; consider taking a nap. Tonight: Your treat.
TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) HHH You are still dealing with a situation in your daily life. It could be health related. Before making any major decisions, check in with a doctor or dentist. Keep up with your yearly checkups. Don’t react to someone at work. Tonight: Busy doing errands, catching up on news, etc.
LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) HHHHH If you can get past negativity, much that is of value will greet you. A partner or associate would like to share good news, but not at the expense of a bah-humbug response. A professional opportunity comes through a meeting. Tonight: Remain open to several different options.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) HHHHH Reach out to a key person. He or she could be unusually somber. Don’t take this person’s mood personally. Could fatigue be playing a role in your decisions right now? Don’t push yourself. Tonight:
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) HHHHH Follow through with a boss or higherup. Don’t keep the same discussion going over and over in your head. Take a walk and move through a problem more quickly. You could be misreading a situa-
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) HHHHH You might be thinking about the weekend. Try to stay grounded in the moment, or else you might not accomplish what you feel is necessary. Someone could be difficult to speak to. Share your feelings in an appropriate manner. Tonight: Let your imagination go. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) HHHH You could handle a personal matter differently if you work with a key individual. Walk away from a power play where you might feel left out. A conversation could be misleading, though the other person might not intend it to be. Tonight: Togetherness.

Promote a positive atmosphere at games West Virginia University sports fans have been known to be some the most passionate fans in the country. Now that football season is approaching, fans must up the standards of what it means to cheer on our sports teams. The national view of Mountaineer fans has been negative for many years. It is now time to change it. We, as Mountaineers, must show the country that Mor-
gantown is not just the home of a successful athletic program, but a thriving place of higher education. The negative view of our sports fans should concern all who attend WVU. For one, when you leave the University, you should want outsiders to notice your degree and the hard work involved to earn it—not how many couches that were burned during your time here. College is too expensive
and requires too much effort to have the experience over shadowed by a few who take celebrating too far. Mountaineer fans should want the national media to cover the games, not the shenanigans that follow. To immature students who do not take academics seriously, it is not a big deal, but to the many students who work diligently to better their lives through WVU, it is major concern.
Students must realize the world doesn’t end after college; you must find a job. Take it from an employer’s point of view. If two applications are on the table and one is from a University that is only known for partying and destruction and the other is known solely for academics, the latter will probably get hired. It is normal to want to have fun, drink alcohol and cheer on your favorite team
at sporting events. It is not normal to burn couches in the street, riot and cause destruction. This type of attention is counterproductive to the point of college, which is to broaden one’s scope intellectually. Have fun at games and events, and remember to represent WVU in the best light. Let’s go mountaineers!

Taxpayers should not support people’s drug habits jeremiah yates opinion editor
The only way to get help is to help yourself. This statement does sound harsh when directed to those who receive welfare benefits from the United States government, but to some degree it is true. Recently, the state of Florida passed a law requiring all recipients of cash welfare (not food stamps, public housing, etc.) to pass a drug screening before receiving any benefits. If the applicant fails a drug screening, they can choose another person to receive benefits on behalf of their children. While this is neither a cureall for the state’s welfare system, nor will it solve all financial problems, hopefully it will encourage those who abuse it to get off welfare. The nation’s welfare program is needed to help those who just can’t get a break. Whether it is from a recent job loss, or simply a victim of bad luck, people who need the program can’t function without it. But it seems a lot of people become accustomed to the program and it becomes a permanent source of income – not the boost that it is supposed to be. I am not above anyone who receives benefits – as a child I was one of them. My mother worked two jobs, attended nursing school, and still managed to raise three boys on her own. During this time, she received welfare from the state of Virginia. Being the person she is, she worked hard to ensure our family of the resources we needed and to get off the welfare system. She used the program for what it is … assistance in a time of need. The current system allows people to gain assistance for
Drug testing vials and the appropriate paperwork associated with drug testing. life, which is why it needs major reconstruction. I am a compassionate person, but I don’t believe taxpayer money should go to someone who claims to be unable to provide for themselves or their families, and still finds ways to support a drug habit. It’s not that I am contending the legalization of drugs, or the moral issues concerning recreational drug use (which is a topic of its own); it is the principal of the matter. The new law passed in Florida could be effective in multiple ways. Not as it stands, but some reshaping should be done so it works more for the
people, not just a way to save the government’s money. If someone fails their drug screening, it could serve as an opportunity for them to find the help they need. Drug addicts should be treated as medical patients, not criminals. The state could use the money saved to help those who failed the screenings. Drug addiction can be difficult to overcome, especially if the living patterns of the individual stay the same. The new law could provide the addict with the motivation to get help and become a productive member of society. According to West Vir-
ginia University philosophy professor Daniel Shapiro, addiction is formed through the combination of the pharmacology of the drug, the set and the setting – not the pharmacology alone. The change to addicts’ lifestyle could be the change that would limit the force of drug addiction. An individual who fails the drug screen and is not considered an ‘addict’ (only a casual user) would be forced to spend his or her money on essentials, not drugs. Taxpayers should not pay for peoples’s drug habits. It is not absurd to undergo a drug screening for certain jobs. If the applicants want to
get hired, they must follow the rules. “I used to smoke pot, but I got a job that drug tests,” is a common phrase. Welfare should be treated the same way. If you want help, undergo a drug screening. If you want to use recreational drugs, don’t apply. This should not be the end to the reformation of our welfare system. It must be designed to give people the help they need, while at the same time urging them to get out on their own, like my mother did. The system needs to hold those receiving benefits ac-
countable. Unless they are physically or mentally unable to hold a job, they should provide proof they are actively searching for work. It should also be mandatory for those receiving benefits to actually earn what they receive. The government could set up programs, that not only force the recipients to work for their benefits, but would provide job training to lead them off of welfare, which some states such as California already do. You can give a man a fish and it will feed him once, but teach a man to fish and it will feed him for the rest of his life.
Google acquires Motorola, takes step closer to Apple Inc. adam arinder the daily reveille
The tech world was shaken up last week with the announcement of Steve Jobs’ resignation as CEO of Apple, Inc. Former COO Tim Cook replaced Jobs as the new company CEO with big shoes to fill. With the debut of the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 around the corner, all eyes are on the iJuggernaut, as well as Cook. Usually, when a company acquires a new CEO, changes are right around the corner — almost to prove him or herself worthy of the new title. However, Cook claims “Apple is not going to change” under his leadership. For Apple fans, that’s fantastic news. As the old saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
While Apple will continue to rake in the dough with the release of new products by year’s end, there’s still the 800-pound gorilla in the room — the company’s main competitor, Google. Google’s mobile operating system Android has made leaps and bounds in its four years of existence toward cracking the dominance of Apple’s iOS. It’s a constant battle among those in the tech community— Google’s open and more customized Android vs. Apple’s clean and easy to use iOS. It’s a fight I’m sure will continue for years to come. With the shift in power at Apple, now would be the perfect time for Google to make a big move. Fortunately for the search giant, Google already made a move — even before Jobs’ resignation. Earlier this month, Google acquired Motorola for — in
your best Dr. Evil impression — $12.5 billion dollars. The acquisition means big things for Google and its Android operating system. After Motorola’s success with its RAZR handset in 2004, the company sort of dropped off the mobile radar. Sure, they made other variations of the RAZR, but none of them really caught on. The company got back into the spotlight, however, in 2009 with the release of the Motorola Droid. Although Android had been present for a little more than two years at that point, the Droid was the first highly advertised Android phone on the market, specifically geared to bring down the iPhone. Motorola made many other Android handsets for Google during the past two years and will obviously continue to do so. “This acquisition will not
change our commitment to run Android as an open platform,” Google CEO Larry Page wrote on the company’s blog. “We will run Motorola as a separate business.” While Motorola has been a big supporter of Android for the past few years, it isn’t the only company producing Android-powered phones. HTC, LG, Sony Ericsson, Lenovo, Acer and Samsung also make devices running Google’s mobile OS. Could this acquisition lead to some hostility towards Google from these companies? So far, it doesn’t seem likely. “We welcome the news of today’s acquisition, which demonstrates Google is deeply committed to defending Android, its partners and the entire ecosystem,” HTC CEO Peter Chou said about the merger. Bert Nordberg, president and CEO of Sony Ericsson, said, “I welcome Google’s com-
mitment to defending Android and its partners.” Many of the other aforementioned company’s CEOs and press officials said similar things. Google’s acquisition is not only good for the mobile phone market, but also could help make a big push in the tablet market, as well. While many Android tablets have been released since the launch of the original iPad, most of them have, well, sucked. One of the best — and, again, most advertised — Android – powered tablets recently released was the Motorola Xoom. While technically more powerful and boasting better features than the iPad,the Xoom or any other tablet hasn’t been able to come close to Apple’s monstrous sales. It’s obvious Google has thrown its money behind Motorola in the past with its An-
droid-powered phones and tablets. Now the two companies are one. Whether it’s enough to bring down Apple and its new leader Tim Cook is hard to say right now. Big changes are coming. No matter which side you choose, we’re going to be in for a wild ride.

Eight Canes players must sit out CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Quarterback Jacory Harris and 11 other Miami players who accepted extra benefits from former booster Nevin Shapiro will be allowed by the NCAA to play again, some as soon as the second game of the season. The harshest penalties handed down Tuesday were reserved for those who took gifts from Shapiro while being recruited. Defensive lineman Olivier Vernon will sit out six games, while Ray Ray Armstrong considered among the nation’s top safeties and tight end Dyron Dye will miss four games apiece. They are three of eight players, including Harris, who must sit out games and repay benefits before they can be reinstated. Miami opens its season at Maryland on Monday night. The Hurricanes still might face many more sanctions as the NCAA’s investigation into Miami’s compliance prac-
tices continues. And with Tuesday’s ruling, the school has joined a growing list of schools with major football programs to be investigated by the NCAA for rule-breaking in the past 18 months. Others include Southern California, Ohio State, Auburn, Oregon, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia Tech and LSU. “Our members have continually stressed that involvement of third parties during recruitment will not be tolerated,” said NCAA vice president of academic and membership affairs Kevin Lennon. Harris, Sean Spence, Travis Benjamin, Marcus Forston and Adewale Ojomo all must sit out one game and make restitution for accepting benefits after enrolling at the school. Four other players must repay small amounts, all under $100, but will not miss any games. “They understand that
their actions demand consequences,” said Miami athletic director Shawn Eichorst. A 13th player, Marcus Robinson, was vindicated of wrongdoing. The NCAA’s ruling means Stephen Morris who led Miami past the Terrapins last season will be at quarterback for the Hurricanes to start the season. Harris, Spence, Benjamin, Forston and Ojomo all will be eligible to play when Miami hosts Ohio State on Sept. 17. “All we’ve done throughout this process is try to move forward,” Miami coach Al Golden said. The NCAA said Vernon must sit six games and repay more than $1,200 because as a recruit he accepted things such as access to Shapiro’s suite at a Miami home game and drinks and cover charges at two different nightclubs. Shapiro, who told Yahoo Sports for a story published
Adu to take second try at MLS CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Freddy Adu can say it now. He was spoiled. A pro at just 14, the youngest ever to play for the U.S. two years later, Adu was christened the next Pele and the petulant teen phenom believed the hype. When he was benched, Adu lashed out at the disciplinarian coach. When he turned 16, Adu drove a 2006 BMW 330i and proclaimed, “everything is me in this car.” He was billed as the next oneword superstar like Tiger, LeBron, Shaq. He would win World Cups for the United States and maybe play for Arsenal or Chelsea by his early 20s. Yet six years after his debut in Major League Soccer, Adu was miles removed from England’s Premier League or even a packed house in Washington roaring in delight, tingling in anticipation of each move by soccer’s boy wonder. He sat scared in Greece on his team’s bus as it was attacked by overzealous fans. His own team’s fans. Hooligans pelted the bus with rocks and shattered windows all because Adu’s Aris FC lost a game in Thessaloniki to its city rival. Waiting for police to clear a lane back to the hotel,
Adu’s lone thought was, get me out of here. “It was one of the craziest things to happen to me,” Adu said. “I’m like, man, this is not what I envisioned when I wanted to be a pro athlete.” Few parts of his career have developed the way Adu expected. Once billed as American soccer’s savior, Adu found himself stuck in Greece last year with his career in shambles. He had bounced around European teams on a series of unsuccessful loans that left him forgotten by the public in the United States and an afterthought for a meaty role on the U.S. national team. Former national team coach Bob Bradley had no use for him on the U.S. roster for last year’s World Cup in South Africa. On top of the world as a teen, Adu stopped having fun playing the game he loved. “When I didn’t get called up to the World Cup team, that really hit me,” Adu said. “That’s always been a goal of mine. When I didn’t get a chance to go, I really sat back. For me, the rest of the year, was the worst time of my career. The worst. When I went back to Aris, the team said my salary was too high and basically tried to bully me into tak-
Freddy Adu will be reunited with his old coach, Peter Nowak, on the Philadelpia Union. ing a paycut by not allowing me to train with team. Everything was bad.” He wasn’t the next Pele. Adu wasn’t even the next Preki. Or Landon Donovan. He was a high-priced globetrotting journeyman, playing ball in Portugal or Greece or Turkey, trying to find a perfect fit before he ran out of time to rediscover the talent that made him such a prodigy and a pro at 14. Now 22, Adu has returned to MLS and the Philadelphia Union, still dreaming of a career stuffed with national team glory and Premier League uniforms. But he comes back to the United States a mature and humbled young man. He has reunited with his former D.C. United coach, Peter Nowak the disciplinarian with the hope of salvaging his pro career and proving that, yes, he can still blossom into the superstar so many experts and fans pegged him to become. “Some people might think I came back to MLS because I didn’t have any offers,” Adu said. “This is where I want to be.”He knew he didn’t want to play in Greece. After being snubbed for the World Cup roster, Adu found a way to terminate his contract with Aris and chose in January to play for a second-division team, Caykur Rizespor, in Turkey. It’s akin to an NBA lottery pick asking for a spot in the DLeague. But all Adu wanted was to play soccer. Turkey offered the best chance for regular playing time, even if the competition didn’t stack up with the world’s elite.

Aug. 16 that he provided benefits to 72 Miami players and recruits over an eight-year span, has even said that he made a $1,000 donation to Vernon’s high school booster club. Armstrong must repay $788, the believed worth of his extra benefits, while Dye will pay back $738. “The student-athletes involved have acknowledged receiving improper benefits and will now be responsible for restitution,” Eichorst said. Forston, the NCAA said, received more than $400 in things such as “athletic equipment, meals, nightclub cover charges and entertainment at a gentleman’s club.” Spence received about $275 in benefits, Ojomo $240, Benjamin more than $150 and Harris more than $140.

Vick rich and ready to go PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Michael Vick shared some laughs, and offered up an occasional smile. But for the most part, his Tuesday press conference announcing his new contract was handled the same way he’s handled everything since he landed in Philadelphia two years ago. All business. “The common goal is to bring that ring back to the city of Philadelphia. That’s why we play,” Vick said. “That’s what we’re all working for. As a competitor, I don’t feel my career will be complete without that.” And so begins the next phase in one of the league’s more remarkable comeback stories. With the business of his new, six-year, $100 million contract out of the way, it’s time for Vick and the rest of the star-laden Eagles to shoot for that elusive Super Bowl title. The Eagles won the 1960 NFL championship, but have been to just two Super Bowls since, losing both. Not that there’s any pressure or anything. “It’s a lot of money, how ever you look at it,” Vick said. “Obviously, it’s going to create a lot of demands. I know what comes along with it, and I know how to handle it.” Vick, 31, became the Eagles’ backup quarterback when they traded Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins after the 2009 season, and he became the starter last September after replacing an injured Kevin Kolb. He was named NFL Comeback Player of the Year in 2010 after winning eight of 11 starts, throwing a career-high 21 touch-
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick signed a new contract for six years, $100 million. down passes and rushing for nine more. But despite engineering a memorable 38-31 comeback win over the New York Giants that ultimately led to the NFC East title in December, Vick and the Eagles were dumped at home a month later in the playoffs by the Green Bay Packers, 21-16, in the wild-card round. But this year, knowing he’ll open the season as the starter, and knowing he has perhaps the most name-heavy roster in the league on his side, it appears like
it’s Super Bowl or bust. Which is why coach Andy Reid and Co. are more than happy to see the quarterback happy. “This is a great story all the way through,” Reid said. “This is really what America’s all about. Second chance and Mike took full advantage of that. And then when he was given a second chance to start in the National Football League, he took full advantage of that and turned it into this.”
Strasburg to pitch Sept. 6 ATLANTA (AP) — Washington manager Davey Johnson on Tuesday confirmed plans for Stephen Strasburg to make his first 2011 start for the Nationals on Sept. 6. Strasburg will start for Double-A Harrisburg on Thursday. It is expected to be his final rehab appearance in his comeback from Tommy John surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. If all goes well, Strasburg will make his much-anticipated start at home against the Los Angeles Dodgers. “I’ve got a spot open for him,” Johnson said.
Johnson also said left-hander Tom Milone will be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to start against the New York Mets on Saturday. Milone will replace Jordan Zimmermann, who isn’t supposed to throw more than about 160 innings in his first full season since Tommy John surgery. Johnson said he plans for Milone and Strasburg to remain in the rotation. “This is the time of year you look at young players,” Johnson said. “That’s what you do at this time of year when you’re not in a pennant race. And unfortunately, we’re not in one.” Johnson did not say how he

Strasburg, the first pick in the 2009 draft, was 5-3 with a 2.91 ERA and 92 strikeouts in 68 innings as a rookie in 2010. He proved in his last rehab start with Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday that he has regained his velocity. His fastball was clocked at 98 mph as he struck out seven in five innings. He gave up one earned run on two hits and no walks against Rochester. It was an especially encouraging outing after Strasburg gave up five runs in 1 2-3 innings in his third rehab appearance with Class A Hagerstown. “He was getting all beat up there in Hagerstown,” Johnson said. “I said, ‘Just get your work in, throw free and easy.’ And he went down and had a great outing.” Strasburg said Saturday he is still working on his curveball but was encouraged he was “really able to pound the zone.” “The goal right now is to go out there, feel good, feel good the next day and do it all over again in five days,” Strasburg said.

Pittsburgh not looking past Buffalo in season opener by cody schuler sports writer
The roots of Pittsburgh head coach Todd Graham’s offensive scheme are the foundations of a multitude of coaches, including former West Virginia head coach Rich Rodriguez. The mindset of Graham is similar to that of Rodriguez. When it comes to the nohuddle offense, he admitted to sharing the same perspective of the scheme as Rodriguez and Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn. “I’m fascinated with the no huddle; everywhere I’ve coached I’ve been a no-huddle team,” Graham said. “We have a passion for that style of play and it really goes back to our training and just wanting to create a 5th quarter and mentally and physically wearing the opponent out.” Pitt will open the season against Buffalo at 6 p.m. Saturday. It will be Graham’s inaugural debut at Heinz Field, as well as his first at the helm for the Panthers. Picked to finish second in the Big East, Pitt has come a long way since hiring Graham in January. “It’s exciting for us,” he said of the season beginning. “It’s been fast and furious for us, naturally coming in and hitting the ground running in January. To put that much change in five or six months is a challenge, so we’re really, really excited for our team and proud of them.” Graham versed his respect for Buffalo, calling the team “very well coached” and possessing “very, very dangerous wide receivers.” Regardless of what Buffalo does, however, Graham is most focused on what his team does when it takes the field on Saturday. “Our deal is on us focusing on going out there and making sure we don’t do things to beat ourselves,” he said.
South Bend, Ind., to take on Notre Dame in the premier game featuring a Big East conference team this week. Secondyear head coach Skip Holtz conveyed the excitement his team has for the game by comparing the legacy of the two programs. “They’ve been playing football for 100 years,” Holtz said. “We just celebrated our 100th win.” From a coaching perspective, Holtz is glad to have no significant injuries to his personnel, but he is somewhat concerned with the excitement generated from such a big game could take a toll on his team. “I worry about it being an opening game (and) guys getting too emotional during the week. We need to make sure we stay focused on what’s going on in between the lines,” he said. Cincinnati Cincinnati plays host to Austin Peay Saturday at 7 p.m. The matchup will give head coach Butch Davis’s team an opportunity to develop an identity. “We had a very productive camp; developing our toughness and mental conditioning were put at a premium,”Davis said. A lack of penalties and turnovers are two ways Davis mentioned as ways his team could develop an identity as a smart, hard-nosed football team. “We define ourselves by finishing plays (and) overcoming adversity … we can’t have penalties and turnovers,” he said. While Austin Peay isn’t necessarily a formidable opponent, Davis reiterated the Bearcats can’t take anything for granted. “Every game is critical – one bad day (or) one bad night can take you from all your dreams, goals and aspirations,” he said. “It’s always a first game, so you never know what to expect.

Holgorsen is showcasing how vital the fans and the state are to the success of the program. One thing to note is that pregame walks of this nature are nothing new. Dozens of schools around the country carry out traditions like this every Saturday. Now that West Virginia has one, expect it to be used to its full potential. This means when big-time recruits visit town, you’ll see them taking part in the Mountaineer Mantrip. On a first visit
to Morgantown, these high school boys will walk a path that will have the potential to lure them in and convince them that greatness can be achieved by wearing the gold and blue. For fans, the job is simple: be there to give your utmost support. Why? Because the Mountaineer Mantrip is just as much about the football players as it is about the fans. It’s an opportunity to become an integral part of Saturdays in Morgantown. It’s about pride, fellowship, and most importantly, it’s about one another. This walk has the opportunity to epitomize everything the state and the university stand for. It will take a full-fledged effort from all parties involved,

Freshman Vernard Roberts is one of three freshmen competing for time at running back this season.
Vernard Roberts working hard to earn starting job in freshman season by michael carvelli sports editor
When he entered spring practice, West Virginia freshman running back Vernard Roberts wasn’t looked at as the starter. But after an impressive showing over the course of four weeks of practice, Roberts found himself slated as the number one player in the A-back slot on the Mountaineers’ preseason depth chart. As he came into camp, his approach didn’t change from what it was prior to the spring. “It doesn’t matter to me whether I’m number two, three or four, I believe that I can play, and I’m just going to go out and be the best
player that Vernard Roberts can be,” he said. In fact, before West Virginia began fall camp, Roberts didn’t even acknowledge the fact that he was the favorite to be the starter. He didn’t want it to prevent him from working hard. “I was talking to my parents before camp started and even though they had me at the top of the depth chart, I still felt like I was at the bottom just to give me that extra work ethic and make sure I kept working hard,” Roberts said. “It’s just a depth chart, and they had to put somebody there. I felt like I had to keep working, not get complacent and just keep being the best I can be.” Roberts has needed that
extra edge as camp has gone on, now that he’s in a fight for the job with freshmen Andrew Buie and Dustin Garrison and sophomore Trey Johnson. For Roberts, who had just done a ton of work to beat out all the backs he past up in the spring, the two new freshmen showing up over the summer are more people he’s had to try to beat. “It’s like you’ve got ants in the hole and they just keep coming,” Roberts said. “You’ve just got to keep competing, that’s all. In the end, it’s going to bring the best out of all of us as players.” Even though they’re all fighting for the same job, Roberts said he and the other

freshman running backs have gotten along well. Honestly, it’s not much of a surprise, they spend enough time together. “It’s fun because they have us all in the same workout groups together so we all just make each other better. We’re all going through it together,” Roberts said. “We’re always joking around together, eating together, lifting together. We have a bond.” While some might think Roberts would have an advantage over Buie and Garrison because he was on campus during the spring and has been in the offense longer, Roberts said that couldn’t be further from the truth since

Mantrip a great new tradition In Morgantown, a new rite of passage has been created, and this Sunday, that new tradition will take its first steps while transforming a program into manhood. It’s time for the inaugural Mountaineer Mantrip. Starting 2 hours and 20 minutes before the game, the Mountaineer Mantrip will give fans the opportunity to cheer for the football team before the game, as players and coaches are led by cheerleaders and the Mountaineer marching band on a walk through the blue and light blue lots outside of the stadium. Named after the shuttle that transports miners underground at the start of a shift, the Mountaineer Mantrip includes a 300-yard walk from the corner of WVU Medical Center and Don Nehlen Drive to the Northeast gate of the stadium. The Mountaineer Mantrip, to me, is a tool. Tools, as you well know, are useful in building things, or in helping one to achieve a task. The Mantrip is a tool to help the Mountaineers bring the program up to new heights. Something like this is long overdue. Thousands of fans pack the lots around the stadium for some of the best tailgating in the nation. Are there better ways to get the players more excited than leading them through a fanlined path filled with the yelling, passionate Mountaineer faithful? Dana Holgorsen obviously didn’t think so. The first-year head coach can do more than orchestrate a prolific offense – he can organize a successful parade. All jokes aside, Holgorsen knows how important this Mantrip is for both him and the program. Before he even coaches a single game, Hol-

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen’s first gameweek press conference as a Mountaineer was all business. The first-year coach addressed the media about several issues the team is still dealing with before its home opener against Marshall, but is more concerned with getting his players to focus on their own game. “It doesn’t matter who your opponent is,” Holgorsen said. “We’re all about focusing on us and trying to get ourselves ready to play. It doesn’t matter who your opponent is we’re going to do the best we can to prepare those guys on a weekly basis.” The depth at running back is still what the Mountaineers will be playing with to start the season, seven of them to be exact. “We’ve got four good days of practice this week to rep them again, and see which one of them does best, and see how they fit into the game plan and make decisions on when they go into the game,” Holgorsen said. “Then, throughout the course of the game it’s about seeing which one of them does best.” The team may use three fullbacks out on the field at one time, or it may use three of the smaller running backs at one time. It is something the head coach said he can use to his advantage throughout the year. The receivers are led by junior Tavon Austin and sophomore Stedman Bailey, but the other positions will most likely take a few games to determine who can emerge has a consistent playmaker in this

Head coach Dana Holgorsen talked about his team’s depth at the running back and receiver positions on Tuesday, and said West Virginia has moved its focus to Marshall. offense. “We don’t know who has established themselves at Y and Z. So, when those guys establish themselves, which it’s going to take some games to figure this out, then that rotation may change slightly,” Holgorsen said. The battle between the two teams has already started. Both teams have not released depth charts and have been reluctant to say exactly who is going to be doing what. “From a coaching standpoint, you want to know what they’re doing,” Holgorsen said. “The unknown is something that drives coaches crazy throughout the week, you want to know what they’re going to do, you want to know what their ten-
dencies are, you want to know what they’re personnel is, but you have to be able to adjust whether there is a ton of familiarity or if there isn’t.” Holgorsen was very specific when talking about what Marshall can do to make the Mountaineers uncomfortable. Even though the Herd lost some of their veteran players from last year, the coach felt they have more guys coming back this year who can really do some damage. “They’ve got a lot of returning guys on defense. I see a bunch of young guys who played last year and will come back and will have more experience this year,” he said. “It’s the second year that staff ’s

Men’s soccer moves into top 10 in Soccer America poll by michael carvelli sports editor
After taking one of two games in Germantown, Md., this weekend in the ACC-Big East Challenge, the West Virginia men’s soccer team shot up in two polls this week. The Mountaineers are now ranked No. 10 in the Soccer America poll and No. 12 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll. Their ranking in the Soccer America poll is the highest they have been ranked since 2007, when they were No. 8 in the country. WVU beat Virginia, who was ranked No. 11 at the time, 1-0 on Friday night on an Eric Schoenle game-winner in the final seconds of the first half.
After it got pushed back a day, the Mountaineers held a lead at halftime before falling 3-1 to No. 4 Maryland on Monday night. West Virginia’s only goal of the game was scored in the seventh minute on freshman Andy Bevin’s first goal of his career. The Mountaineers return to action on Friday night, when they play host to Binghamton at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium at 7 p.m. WVU women fall to No. 25 The West Virginia women’s soccer team dropped to No. 25 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll following a 1-1 week. WVU started the weekend with a 5-0 loss at the hands
of Penn State. The Mountaineers fell behind against the Nittany Lions early, allowing three goals in the first eight minutes of action and weren’t able to recover. But, they were able to rebound Sunday with a 3-0 win against George Mason. Their 13 shots on goal against GMU was the most the Mountaineers have had in a game since 2008. West Virginia returns to action Thursday against No. 18 Ohio State, 7 p.m. at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. The game will be the first Dollar Night of the season, as all tickets and select concessions will be available to fans for one dollar. email@example.com

Trial Rider to defy gravity on WVU campus by jake potts a&e editor
Professional trial rider Thomas Oehler will be displaying his talents on West Virginia University’s campus today from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oehler, 26-year-old trial rider, will be stopping at WVU as a part of his five-week tour throughout the East Coast, sponsored by Red Bull. Oehler rides wheelies, jumps incredible heights and lengths and never once loses his balance, all while on a bike. “When I was 12, I saw some photographs of guys doing trial stuff on bikes – you know, riding wheelies, bunny-hopping and all that stuff, and I wanted to do it,” Oehler said.
After mastering the basic elements to trial riding, Oehler entered his first trial riding competition, which is where he said he knew this is what he wanted to do. “I had such an awesome time in the first competition that I wanted to do it again as soon as I could,” Oehler said. “I won the second one, which was where my career really took off.” Oehler holds several records in trial riding, including highest jump of 2.9 meters. In 2006, Oehler was named the European Champion to go along with his five Austrian trial bike championships. In 2008, he was named World Champion of the sport, and has held the title since.
Oehler looks forward to the crowds his sport draws in, especially on college campuses. “We’re just going to be looking for crowded places to ride,” Oehler said. “Once it gets started, more people just flood in.” Because WVU has such a large campus, the rider will be showcasing his talents in the Mountainlair area from noon until 2 p.m. and plans on moving to Evansdale and the Towers area from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. At 11 p.m., the rider will be showcasing more of his talents on the Bent Willey’s dance floor. Because of complications traveling, the rider won’t be able to bring in any obsta-
cles for his exhibitions, which makes planning ahead of time nearly impossible for the sport. “I’m not very familiar with the campus, so I’m just going to have to feel it out when we get there,” Oehler said. “But college campuses always have awesome stuff to ride on.” The rider’s talents will be showcased throughout the campus from noon until 4 p.m. because he will be riding on objects placed throughout campus, there is no charge to come out and enjoy the show. After his campus riding, Oehler will be performing on Bent Willey’s dance floor at 11 p.m. firstname.lastname@example.org

Fall returning television series provide relief, relaxation from studies ashley hite a&e correspondent
The beginning of fall semester comes with sudden overwhelming responsibilities associated with being a college student. The days between football games and weekends with friends can drag on, making work and class harder to get through. With mounting stress from the week’s requirements bogging you down, a quick TV fix could be the escape you’re looking for. So, here’s a list of a few of this fall’s highly anticipated new and returning shows that might offer the temporary getaway you’re craving. “Grey’s Anatomy” Continuing after last season’s shocking ending, “Grey’s Anatomy” promises to be as scandalizing and powerful as its previous seven seasons.

The medical drama continues on ABC, Sept. 22 at 9 p.m. “American Horror Story” For those looking for a little more mystery and thrill in their programming, FX’s new series “American Horror Story” is hoping to fit the bill. The drama follows the Harmon family of three as they move from Boston to a not so “home sweet home” in Los Angeles. With the combined minds of “Nip/Tuck” creator Ryan Murphy and “Glee” co-creator Brad Falchuk writing the story, it’s sure to be an interesting ride. Look for it on FX, Oct. 5 at 10 p.m.
Grey’s Anatomy will be returning for yet another season in September on ABC. September 19 at 10 eastern time, bringing suave and comedic writer, Rick Castle and his NYPD muse, Kate Beckett, back on screen for what will hopefully give a few answers after Rick’s big (and long awaited) confession. The upcoming season looks to be as comical and dramatic as its predecessors, with everyone already asking “What happens next?”
“Once Upon A Time” From the executive producers of Lost, comes an intriguing fairy-tale-meets-modern world series revolving around Emma Swan, the long-lost daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming. When the son she gave up comes to find her, the 10-year“Castle” old attempts to convince ABC’s “Castle” returns for Emma of her actual past. But a book of fairy tales isn’t its fourth season Monday,

‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ shouldn’t have seen the light of day Jake potts a&e editor
When it comes to scary movies, the line between good and bad is more like a 15-foot brick wall with guards and electric fences surrounding the entire perimeter. In essence, a movie is either good or it’s not worth the effort you put out to keep your eyes open during it. In this case, close your eyes. Maybe you will dream up something more frightening. The depressing part about the demise of this film is the fact that Guillermo del Toro has made such a name for himself as either a writer, producer or director with popular films like “Hellboy,” “Pan’s Labyrinth” and “Kung Fu Panda 2” among many others. At the beginning of the movie, the setting is that of many other horror stories – an old house full of mysteries and murder dating back hundreds and hundreds of years. A man encumbered with peril and equipped with a toothless, gruesomely award-winning
Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark Bailee Madison Katie Holmes smile has planted a trap for one of the ladies of the house to stumble into unknowingly. The woman takes her fall and with one swift swing of a hammer is in the same toothless situation of the previously introduced gentleman. When the teeth are collected and offered to a group of small creatures unknown to the viewer, the man meets his demise and
the movie progresses, leaving everyone wondering what is the fascination with teeth. Current day comes into play as the father, Alex, played by Guy Pearce (“The Hurt Locker”) and his girlfriend, played by Katie Holmes (“Batman Begins,” “Dawson’s Creek”), invest their time and money into making this demonic dungeon their meal ticket. Alex’s daughter, Sally (played by Bailee Madison, “Bridge to Terabithia”), has been forced to live with her father after a nasty divorce and seeks for an escape within the walls of the house. This is when she first discovers the whispers coming from the bowels of the home, but chooses to keep this discovery a secret until it’s too late. Aside from the typical and very predictable “gotcha” moments, the horrors of the movie don’t stretch much further. The antagonists of the movie show themselves quickly and are akin to a cracked-out version of Dobby from the “Harry Potter” series, only on a smaller and slightly more maniacal scale. Numerous warnings are given by the caretaker of the home, until the creatures lock him in the basement, run around him like
decapitated chickens and slice him up with assorted tools and household appliances. The father, who is wrapped up in making a name for himself in the architect business, ignores the warnings of his girlfriend and daughter until the danger of the situation is staring him right in the eye – well, sort of. When the story of the creatures is told, a hint of the legend of the Tooth Fairy is revealed. Yet, it’s almost like the writers intended to run with that element but, as soon as it was introduced, dropped it like a bad habit, never touching on the story again. The night of an important meeting comes up and the creatures’ hunger for children’s teeth is stronger than ever, to the point where they are freely running through the house trying to rob the mouth of the daughter. Warnings are ignored, the perilous ending unfolds with the expected heroic actions of the father and the sacrificial decision-making of the girlfriend. The weirdest element of the film comes in the closing scene. Katie Holmes has been captured by the creatures and as the lights of the house are extinguished and the camera pans
“Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” came into theatres August 26.
in on the creatures’ home, the voice of the girlfriend can be heard helping them plan their next attack. Yeah, it didn’t make sense to me, either. I apologize for the spoilers,but the way I see it, if I share with you the horrors that I had to witness because of this film, I save you the effort of planning, gas money, the money you’ll pay getting in and the waste of a single second even considering seeing this movie. In the end, my spoiling of the
film doesn’t seem like such a bad thing. This movie is a cliche of everything done wrong in scary movies. With a little bit more depth and some more sophisticated scares, this film could’ve easily been a success. Unfortunately, it proved itself to be a waste of filming, time, attempted creativity and, frankly, my $7.

Electronic Music escapes the underground, goes main stream jake potts a&e editor
Over the past several years, the sounds of the underground have centered around one thing – driving electronic beats, catchy quick rhythms and sounds that are fun to dance to. The sounds that are most commonly incorporated with most, if not all, of those categories are electronic music. Some may find the term “electronic music” to be vague,
and that’s because it is. Electronic music covers anything from techno mixes, heavy dubstep and everything in between. The sounds found in the underground scene have made their way into daylight recently and have become one of the most-heard genres in the world of music today. With branches stemming into the 1970’s with Gary Nuwman, Kraftwerk, Suicide and many others, the history of electronic music is a long and winding road that has led the genre to where it is today.
There are many names in electronic music today, but in my eyes, some of the bigger and more noted musicians in this field are Skrillex, Deadmau5, Benny Benassi and several others. These inventors of the art have taken the music to levels unforeseen by their predecessors, and only made it better with every daring step. The genre has become so popular that it’s been noticed in other genres where electronic music would previously not be expected or even accepted as appropriate.
Several heavy metal bands such as Asking Alexandria, Attack Attack! and others have incorporated full electronic sections into their songs. Why? The similarities between a heavy breakdown in a metal song and the synonymous heavy sections of dubstep keep the listeners of both happy with either selection. There are stipulations being suggested about the engineers of electronic music, claiming they are not musicians because in terms of “musical instruments,” they may not pos-
sess the talents that someone who can create music with a conventional instrumental process. We’re living in the age of technology. What is the difference between an electronic keyboard, which can be used to duplicate the most intricate compositions of Mozart, and a computer with electronic music programs on it? You push a button. It makes a sound. You push a lot of buttons, it creates something that either sounds good or bad. Sounds the same to me. The future of electronic mu-
sic is going to be big. Something started underground and only enjoyed by few is growing into a world-wide phenomenon of musical inventiveness, unfathomable by traditional musical beliefs. My suggestion is to take it for what it is – music. Listen to it. Love it. Hate it. But don’t dismiss it because it was made on something other than a guitar or piano. email@example.com
JEFF the Brotherhood to perform at 123 Pleasant Street by hunter homistek a&e correspondent
JEFF the Brotherhood will be performing at 123 Pleasant Street Wednesday night beginning at 10 p.m. 123 Pleasant Street has been holding shows unlike that of any other venue within the Morgantown area. From punk bands to some big rap names, every genre is covered on this stage, and Wednesday’s show will be no exception. Gracing the 123 stage will
be indie punk/rock sensations JEFF the Brotherhood with supporting act The Demon Beat. This show promises to be the polar opposite of the processed and cookie-cutter music of today and will be an event for those who enjoy raw, unprocessed music in which emotion and energy are free to capture the spotlight. JEFF the brotherhood is a two-piece garage rock band boasting a sound reminiscent of early punk pioneers like The Ramones and The Clash.
The band, comprised only of brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall, is touring behind their latest release and fifth studio album “We Are the Champions” under Infinity Cat recordings. Jake and Jamin are the sons of successful recording artist/ producer/songwriter Robert Ellis Orrall, and their talents clearly reflect their years of musical exposure with their father and with one another. They began playing together in high school and, after testing their musical abili-
ties in a few projects, decided to devote their time and energy solely to the project JEFF the Brotherhood. This decision has unquestionably paid off for them, as JEFF the Brotherhood is quickly emerging as one of the hottest acts in the garagerock genre. JEFF the Brotherhood, despite being a two-piece band, sports a sound of a much fuller band. They make this possible by implementing elements of psychedelic punk, garage rock, and straight oldschool punk to their sound.
At times, their expert use of effects and unusual sonic elements leaves the listener wondering how they accomplished such sounds. These elements condense perfectly to form an undeniably unique tone and style, and many popular music resources have begun to take note. Among their many recent awards and recognitions, JEFF the Brotherhood has been named one of SPIN Magazine’s “must-hear acts” at the 2011 South by Southwest festival and also earned
the right to be called one of SPIN’s “best spring tours” of 2011. Simply put, JEFF the Brotherhood is a hot, hot act right now, and Morgantown residents have the honor of catching them at the height of their careers on Wednesday night at 123 Pleasant Street. Audiences nationwide have been clamoring over JEFF the Brotherhood’s live show for the entire duration of their 2011 tour. It is now time for Morgantown to do what it does best: join the party. JEFF the Brotherhood will
JEFF the Brotherhood will be performing at 123 Pleasant St. Wednesday night. They recently released “We are the Champions.”

Rupert Boneham, winner of Survivor may run for governor of Indiana. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — “Survivor” all-star contestant Rupert Boneham may run for governor of Indiana. Boneham formed an exploratory committee Monday to possibly seek the Libertarian Party’s nomination for governor. He said on his campaign website that the current field of candidates doesn’t understand the problems average Hoosiers face. He cited his extensive charity work on behalf of troubled teenagers as his chief qualification. “He sees a lot of the same status quo politicians and the same platitudes we get every election cycle and he thinks we could be on the wrong track and he wants to make a difference,” said Sean Shepard, Boneham’s spokesman. The bushy-bearded Boneham, known for wearing tiedyeed shirts, competed in 2003 on “Survivor: Pearl Island” and has been on multiple “Survivor” follow-ups since then. He was voted fan favorite in 2004’s “Survivor: All-Stars” and donated a portion of the $1 million he won to his charity, Rupert’s Kids. His Indianapolis-based charity provides mentoring and job-training to youths. If he runs, Boneham will join a field dominated by Republican Congressman Mike Pence and former Democratic Indiana House Speaker John Gregg. Boneham’s national fame could pigeonhole him, but people would learn to look past his stardom if he campaigned hard
enough, said Chris Spangle, executive director of the Indiana Libertarian Party “He would be a serious candidate, he would be someone that would really insert a lot of really fresh ideas into the debate,” Spangle said. “I think he would make the Republican and Democratic nominees work a little bit harder.” While Pence and Boneham would likely agree on most fiscal issues, Libertarians tend to diverge with Republicans on personal choice issues including whether government should license marriages, Spangle said. Indiana Republican Party spokesman Pete Seat said it remains to be seen if Boneham could survive a statewide contest. “We’ll have to see if he has what it takes to survive on the island post-primary, but right now we are focused on the 2011 cycle,” Seat said. Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Dan Parker used the possibility of a Boneham run to take a shot at Pence. “We welcome Rupert to the race if he decides to run. It’ll be nice to have someone else on the campaign trail who spends all his time in Indiana, not in Washington, D.C.,” he said. The Libertarian Party will meet in April to pick its candidates for state offices, Spangle said. Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels can’t run for re-election next year because of term limits.
