SGA pushes for safer housing laws by mackenzie mays city editor

The West Virginia University Student Government Association is pushing for a statewide bill to be passed that would protect tenants who face issues with mold growing in their homes. There is currently no legislation that regulates what rights tenants have when mold makes residencies unlivable, said SGA Off-Campus

Housing Director Earl Hewitt. “Students can get sick and have to move out of their homes, but still have to pay rent because nothing is holding landlords liable,” Hewitt said. “The bill encompasses a lot about mold and its effects on residential housing, which has been one of the biggest issues on campus in the past few years.” The bill would require landlords to offer alternative housing up to 10 days for tenants

who suffer medical conditions due to inhalation of mold or force them to renegotiate the lease agreement, Hewitt said. Less than nine square feet of mold would have to be cleaned with a disinfectant and moisture would be removed with humidifiers, according to the bill. “There are about 30,000 students here, and a major portion of them are living off-campus. We depend on landlords to treat them justly

through the whole process,” he said. “We want to promote fair housing in Morgantown and keep good relationships between citizens and landlords.” Nancy Key, WVU environmental health and safety specialist, said students need to know the signs of mold infestation and report them to their landlords immediately to avoid medical problems. “Just because it doesn’t look bad, doesn’t mean you’re safe.


Sometimes it’s hard to recognize because it’s been painted over,” Key said. Mold spores are constantly in the air in small numbers and grow well on building materials such as wood, especially when water intrusion occurs, making residential areas susceptible to infestation, Key said. “Mold becomes a problem when a broken pipe isn’t fixed properly or there’s a leak in places like the roof that cover

a large area of the room. It can go from nothing to something in just 48 hours,” she said. “It’s important for tenants to report issues promptly. When you have that level of moisture, you could get into a really unhealthy living environment.” Living around mold can lead to respiratory irritation and can become even more severe in individuals who are allergic to mold, Key said.

Campus libraries seek student, staff input by carlee lammers staff writer

West Virginia University Campus Libraries is asking for student and faculty input as it seeks to better serve its users on campus. A group of 4,700 randomly selected WVU faculty and students will receive a link via email this week to the national online library service quality survey, LibQUAL. “I’m excited to hear what our users think and see as necessary and important,” said Interm Dean of Libraries Myra Lowe. “We get to see what our

users’ expectations are.” Four LibQUAL surveys have been issued previously and have been an asset to the libraries, Lowe said, and faculty and staff are able to determine which services to offer to students and University faculty in order to allow them to make better use of the library. Lowe said it was due to the feedback received from the LibQUAL surveys that established deep-quiet areas of the library, an increase in the number of computers available for use, extended hours of operation and the creation of Eliza’s coffee shop in the Downtown

Campus Library. “Participation in the survey helps us to decide what to address to meet student and faculty’s needs,” Lowe said. Those selected to participate will have until Feb. 17 to complete the survey. “I hope individuals will take some time to fill out the surveys,” Lowe said. “Students’ and faculty’s opinions really do matter to us and can help make a difference in their libraries.” Lowe also said those who participate in the fifteen-minute, multiple-choice survey would have the opportunity to be placed into a drawing

for one of two iPads offered through the initiative. The library has also created an online Frequently Asked Questions site to address any questions or concerns that students or faculty may have as they take part in the survey. “There’s probably more information on there than anyone would want to know, but we hope that will answer any specific questions that may arise,” Lowe said. The University has four major libraries located in Morgantown. The WVU Downtown Library

INSIDE THIS EDITION WVU wrestling seniors wrestled in their last match over the weekend against No. 9 Pittsburgh. SPORTS PAGE 10

Members of the Morgantown community came out Monday night to support a West Virginia University student on her quest to help provide safe drinking water to the northern region of Ghana. Chelsea Hodgkins, a junior international studies and geography student, was chosen to join a fellowship with Community Water Solutions, a non-profit organization based out of Medfield, Mass. “Basically what we will do is go into these Ghanaian communities and implement water treatments,” Hodgkins said. “The water in Ghana is saline.

So, even if you dug a well it would not be potable. We’ll be installing water systems to take the water that is already there and treat it with chlorine tablets to make it potable.” The nonprofit has provided clean water to more than 15,400 people, including 3,000 children in 26 villages, according to its website. Hodgkins will join four fellow college students from Brown University, Boston College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Salisbury University in aiding the nonprofit organization this spring.

Grassroots Grants promotes mental health by jessica lear staff writer

Chestnut Ridge Center, the behavioral medicine treatment center of West Virginia University Healthcare, is seeking applicants for its annual Grassroots Grants Program. The Grassroots Grants Program has existed for more than 12 years and provides grant recipients with money for research and care in the areas of mental health, mental illness, substance abuse and dependence and family preservation. “We call it Grassroots because that is the type of grant application we are looking for,” said Janet Scarcelli, the community relations coordinator of Chestnut Ridge Center. “Grassroots implies local and driven by community need.” Chestnut Ridge Center is a psychiatric facility that aims to help the community learn about mental health care and promote other institutions to offer services in these areas. “This program began as a result of Chestnut Ridge’s commitment to the community to enhance services,”

Scarcelli said. Scarcelli said Chestnut Ridge Center’s goal to provide quality psychiatric care to patients of all ages is important, and the Grassroots Grants Program was created to provide funding for new projects involving psychiatric care and research in the local medical community. “Because Chestnut Ridge provides mental health and substance abuse services and because our physical well-being is affected by our mental well-being, we want to further community access to enhance these areas,” she said. The Grassroots Grants Program offers grants of up to $1,000 for any non-profit organization in West Virginia willing to respond to the center’s goal of promoting psychiatric health in the community. “The grant is meant to be a catalyst for change or starting a new program that will enhance community,” Scarcelli said. Grassroots grant applicants must submit a typed proposal detailing a project description, a timeline, how

Drug testing W.Va. coal miners up for review CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Testing coal miners for drugs presents both benefits and burdens to West Virginia regulators, the House and Senate Judiciary committees heard Monday as lawmakers pursue measures this session to improve mine safety. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has proposed a wide-ranging mine safety bill that includes a mandatory, random screening program for all mine jobs requiring certification. The random testing should annually screen half of any employer’s certified workforce, the legislation says. The two committees

Leopold was the father of the Wildlife Society,” she said. Lauzau said Wildlife Heritage Day, The Wildlife Society and the American Fisheries Society are dedicated to teaching people about wildlife conservation. “What we do here is mostly education. We give biology, forestry and lots of other majors an opportunity to do things they won’t necessarily get to do in class,” she said. The societies provide classes for members, including chainsaw education workshops, deer antler scoring and Saw-whet owl banding, a process which allows conservationists to accurately track the migratory patterns of Sawwhet owls, a small species of owl native to North America. Both societies are open to students of any major who are interested in wildlife conservation, Lauzau said.

I want to mainly see the different levels of development and the difference in the cultures. No two countries are the same.” Hodgkins reached out to WVU students and staff to help raise money for her trip. The Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant downtown donated 10 percent of its profits to Hodgkins’ cause Monday night. “I’m in shock with the turnout,” she said. “I wasn’t expecting this many people to come. It’s absolutely awesome, and

launched a two-day series of hearings Monday for that bill and others. Lawmakers seek to focus on proposals that respond to the 2010 Upper Big Branch mine explosion. The worst U.S. coal mining disaster in four decades, the underground Raleigh County blast killed 29 miners. The second hearing is slated for 2 p.m.Tuesday in the House of Delegates Chamber. Eugene White, acting deputy director of the state Office of Miners’ Health Safety and Training, estimated that drugs played a role in around 200 of the 5,413 complaints and incidents his “The Wildlife Society is also a great place to meet professionals that can help you in the future,” she said. “It’s a really eye-opening experience. I mean if you’ve never held an owl before, your life is changed once you do,” she said. The Wildlife Society also hosts the annual game dinner, where members cook a variety of wild game for donation contributors. Will Haus, vice president of the WVU Chapter of the American Fisheries Society, said he encourages students interested in the outdoors to join one or both organizations. “Both clubs offer lots of chances for internships,” he said. He said the experience is invaluable for students in Biology or wildlife management majors. “It gives them the chance to do the hands-on stuff that ecology and biology don’t give them, and our societies help them network their way into a career,” Haus said.

WVU has the best people on earth, as far as I’m concerned.” WVU students were proud to know they were helping a fellow student achieve her goals and promoting a good cause at the same time. “I think it’s really neat that someone our age is doing something so great,” said WVU sophomore Sarah Eckles. “You just have to come out and support something like this.” Hodgkins said she is incredibly thankful not only for the support of the WVU campus but the Morgantown community, as well. “There was a group of women that I didn’t even know that got my flyer forwarded to them through a friend of a friend and came out,” she said. “You know, you hand out 300 different flyers hoping for the best, and people actually pulled through.”

He recalled once going underground on a drug complaint, and he had to ask a foreman to conduct the drug test. The young miner refused to

KANEOHE BAY, Hawaii (AP) — The court martial for a Marine sergeant accused of hazing a fellow Marine who committed suicide in Afghanistan was delayed Monday after the prosecution asked to expand the details of the charges. Military judge Col. Michael Richardson told prosecutors to provide Sgt. Benjamin Johns’ defense with specifics of the new charge details. Jury selection is expected to begin Tuesday. Johns has been charged with wrongfully humiliating and demeaning Lance Cpl. Harry Lew, who killed himself on April 3. Johns, a squad leader, also has been charged with dereliction for failing to supervise and ensure the welfare of Marines under his care. The government had already told the defense the dereliction charge included allegations that Johns ordered Lew to dig a hole as punishment even though Johns wasn’t authorized mete out such punishment. But on Monday, Capt. Jesse Schweig told Richardson the government wanted to expand its case by saying Johns was also derelict for failing to prevent other Marines from punishing Lew by forcing him to carry sand bags around their patrol base. The general court-martial had been scheduled to start with jury selection Monday at a Marine base in Kaneohe Bay, the home of the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Division, which the accused are assigned to. Johns is the second Marine to be tried in the case. The first, Lance Cpl. Jacob Jacoby, last week pleaded guilty to assault. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and demoted to private first class. A third Marine will go to trial later. Johns’ attorney said his client was only trying to save the

White earlier told the committees that turnover remains an issue, with 27 employees leaving last year. The agency is also short seven or eight inspectors, White said. “To add more things to your plate, without probably much more staff, that would very difficult, I’m assuming,” Caputo said. “If you’re saying we’re going to do drug testing or oversee it at the coal mines in this state, we would definitely have

His leaders referred him up the chain of command for punishment and took him off patrols so he could get more rest so he wouldn’t fall asleep. A command investigation report on the incident said Johns, after discovering that Lew had dozed again, told other fellow lance corporals that “peers should correct peers.” At about 11 p.m., he woke up another Marine who was due to relieve Lew two hours later and had him take over the job early. Johns also ordered Lew to dig a

foxhole deep enough for him to stand in, so he would stay awake while on watch. The violence escalated after Johns went to sleep. Jacoby admitted in his court martial that he punched and kicked Lew, saying he was frustrated that the fellow Marine repeatedly fell asleep while on watch. He was also upset that Lew spoke to him disrespectfully. The third Marine, Lance Cpl. Carlos Orozco III allegedly put his foot on Lew’s back, ordered Lew to do push-ups, side planks and poured sand into Lew’s face. Orozco has been charged with assault, humiliating Lew, and cruelty and maltreatment. His court martial is pending.

The funding may be used for events, materials, education campaigns, treatment programs or conferences that promote mental health education or services. Last year’s grants were given

to the Milan Puskar Health Right, the MUSHROOM project, Preston County Family Resource Network, Mental Health America, Northern West Virginia Council for Independent Living, One Unique Recovery House, Hail’s Neighbor House, and Starting Points. The grants given to these organizations funded projects that included raising the selfesteem of those with mental

health disabilities, providing care and housing for addicted women and creating a network for low-income family caregivers. Chestnut Ridge Center is located on the Health Sciences campus and is affiliated with the Department of Behavioral Medicine and Psychiatry of the WVU School of Medicine.

lives of his squad as he tried to get Lew — who had repeatedly fallen asleep on watch and patrol — to stop dozing off. The base had been fired on before, and Johns was concerned Lew wouldn’t spot Taliban fighters trying to attack their outpost again, Tim Bilecki said. “These aren’t acts of hazing. They’re simply not,” Bilecki said. “These are actions of a Marine trying to take care of his other Marines.” Lew, of Santa Clara, Calif., was a nephew of U.S. Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., who has called for congressional hearings on the military’s efforts to prevent hazing. In April, the squad was assigned to a small patrol base in a remote part of Helmand prov-

Blue Moose Cafe offers customers artistic atmosphere, vegetarian options CAssIA King A&E CORRESPONDENT

For those looking to find a healthy, unique restaurant, a chill coffee house or a cool art and music venue, the search ends at Morgantown’s Blue Moose Cafe, which offers guests all three. Anthony LeRose, a chef at Blue Moose, said the restaurant offers a wide variety of all natural, fresh foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Breakfast is the most popular time at Blue Moose, and the breakfast burrito is a favorite among patrons. The burrito is filled with vegetarian sausage, eggs, black beans, fresh veggies and cheddar cheese, all wrapped in a wheat tortilla, he said. LeRose said there were plenty of lunch and dinner options available at Blue Moose, as well, including their popular black bean burger. The burger is a unique vegetarian option instead of the typical diner classic. Black beans and rice held together with cornmeal make

the burger a hearty choice for guests. “I would almost call the Blue Moose a vegetarian diner,” LeRose said. “We serve a lot of diner-style dishes, but just transform them to vegetarian or vegan.” But, beyond playing the role of classic diner, Blue Moose also transforms into a unique coffee house offering a wide selection of drinks, milkshakes and smoothies. Helen Rosser, barista at Blue Moose Cafe since July, said the cafe is well-known for their espresso milkshake, which

can be made with chocolate or vanilla. “People love the espresso shake,” Rosser said. “I even hear people saying, ‘Please pick me up a shake on the way home.’ ” Another popular drink is the mocha latte which is equipped with a smooth chocolatey taste and the full flavor of coffee. All coffee drinks can be made with soy, skim or 2 percent milk. Blue Moose offers plenty of great desserts to accompany the variety of hot, steamy drinks. Rosser said LeRose was not only a chef for the restaurant but also a baker specializing in muffins

and biscotti. “We do everything from scratch,” LeRose said. “Everything from baked goods to omelets and quiche.” Blue Moose gives guests more than just coffee and great food though. Open mic night is every Wednesday starting at 8 p.m., and brings in a variety of performers and listeners. Blue Moose brings a diverse hang out and a great venue for local music to the Morgantown scene. Simone O’hara, a Blue Moose patron for eight years, said she enjoyed the diversity of the crowd, and the cafe’s Almond

Froth drink. “Since I lived in New York for 18 years,” O’hara said. “I love the diversity within the cafe; I love the different ethnic groups and all the unique characters I meet.” Blue Moose Cafe is open Monday through Thursday 7 a.m.-10 p.m., Friday 7 a.m.-11 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m.-11 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m.-10 p.m. They are located at 248 Walnut St. Visit, or call 304-292-8999 for more information. daa&

‘The Fades’ will haunt viewers LAURa CIAROLLA COPY EDITOR

Recently premiered on BBC3 this fall, “The Fades” is an exciting new series that shows a lot of promise for critical acclaim. Jumping on the coattails of Hollywood’s most popular genre at the moment – supernatural drama – the series focuses on the trials of an adolescent boy who comes to realize his angelic powers, one of which is the ability to see ghosts. These ghosts, or “fades” as the characters call them, are not all the happy sort, so conflicts naturally arise. Paul (Ian De Caestecker) is a seemingly normal, albeit awkward, teen who desires nothing more than hanging out with his nerdy best friend, Mac (Daniel Kaluuya), and lustily pursuing his twin sister’s (Lily Loveless) best friend, Jay (Sophie Wu). However, Paul is also haunted by apocalyptic dreams and, eventually, the newfound ability to see fades. His powers do not go unnoticed, and “seer” Neil (Johnny Harris) soon takes the boy under his wing to battle the evil spirits. Many of the fades are bitter from being trapped on Earth, and some have begun to seek ways around the natural order. What really takes this show to a high level is the characters. They draw you in like many other horror stories fail to do, somehow balancing the suspenseful horror with their own complexity and drama. The main character, Paul, is a pretty relatable character for anyone. De Caestecker does a fantastic job portraying the emotions in his character as he understandably struggles with his new abilities and the world they open up for him. My personal favorite, and I suspect a soon-to-be fan favorite, is Paul’s best friend Mac. Kaluuya may be familiar to some from his appearance on seasons one and two of “Skins,” but he is unrecognizable as an enthusiastic sci-fi nerd with an overly friendly attitude. In relation to the conflict of the show, he doesn’t actually add much to the story other than moral support for De Caestecker’s character.

In BBC’s ‘The Fades,’ Ian De Caestecker plays Paul, a teenager haunted in his dreams. However, his humor adds more to the show than most of the other characters add in general. I’m not sure I would have watched the second episode as soon as I did had it not been for my excitement to see his character. Loveless is another recognizable actress from the “Skins” series, but the twin sister is a much different role from the lovable lesbian she used to play. So far, her character hasn’t had too much opportunity to display depth, but I suspect her to be a bigger part of the series as it progresses. “The Fades” plays with familiar concepts with ghosts, apocalyptic undertones and plenty of teenage angst. Yet, it twists the themes well enough to present them as new and intriguing, catching the viewer’s curiosity early on and building continuously. The first episode was good, the second even better, and now, after just watching the fourth episode, I’m at the edge of my seat waiting for the next one. If you’re a fan of horror, drama or the supernatural, I would highly recommend this series. Keep in mind, though, some squeamish types may

want to watch out for a couple of particularly gruesome scenes. Don’t let that deter you; if I was able handle it, it’s probably not too bad. “The Fades” has already premiered its first six episodes on BBC3 and BBC HD last fall, but the first four are now available on iTunes, and the last two are soon to come. daa&

Radcliffe works magic in drama ‘Woman in Black’

cbs films

Elizabeth finley A&E WRITEr

“The Woman in Black,” a quintessential British horror movie, was released Friday. It ranked number two in the box

office polls this weekend, behind “Chronicle,” earning $21 million. Being an avid Harry Potter fan, I will say it is difficult at first to see Daniel Radcliffe as anything but Harry. There is a scene early on in the film, when Radcliffe is looking at a newspaper on the train; I expected

Invitation to apply for

the pictures to move, but to my disappointment, they did not. As the movie continues, however, you get so wrapped up in the storyline of “The Woman in Black” that you forget about Harry. Radcliffe plays a lawyer, who is a single father of a four-yearold. He is sent to a small town outside London to examine paperwork on property to be put

up for sale. This, of course, is the haunted house. The small town had been plagued by the ghostly woman wearing a black veil for years before Radcliffe’s arrival. He soon learns through his experiences in the house that the woman provoked young children to commit suicide in order to avenge the death of her own son. There is an interest-

ing plot twist at the end of the movie – you will definitely be surprised. The movie holds your interest the whole time, because unlike a lot of other horror movies, the plot is very interesting. It keeps you guessing all the way to the end. Based on Radcliffe’s performance in this movie, I would expect to see many more from

him in the future. He really proved he can branch out from being the Harry Potter childactor that we all know and love. The movie was, overall, very good. I was definitely scared, so I would not suggest going alone!

In the 1980’s, “hair metal” was king. As a record label, if you had a band with big hair, makeup and a sappy power ballad, chances are you were going to have at least moderate success. This standard caused a slew of sound-alike bands. However there were a number of bands that sonically set themselves apart from the glam logjam. None did this better than Van Halen, who released their new album “A Different Kind of Truth” today. The record is the first full album the band has recorded with original singer David Lee Roth in more than 25 years. The opening track “Tattoo” is also the lead single for the release. It opens with vocal harmonies and then breaks into a riff that is undeniably Eddie Van Halen. This infectiously catchy, but ultimately forgettable track, is an assurance to fans that the album isn’t going to stray too far

from the band they’ve grown to love. With the next track “She’s the Woman” the bar is raised. This song sounds like it could have been released during the hay-day of Van Halen and been a hit. Roth’s famous bluesy vocal styling takes center stage on “You and Your Blues.” However Roth is supported by a mammoth staccato riff from Eddie that will conjure up memories of jamming “Panama.” “China Town” is the Eddie Van Halen throw down I was anticipating. An opening progressive mini-solo transitions crisply into an up-tempo, galloping, guitar assault. This track could’ve been much longer, and could’ve been much more had Roth’s vocals matched the intensity of his rhythm section. The tempo is pulled back a bit on “Blood and Fire,” which despite the name, sounds like a song one would play while kicking back at an outdoor barbecue. That is the case, until the solo screeches in, which feels like the most emotive solo on the album. I could be way off here, but in my opinion, “Bullethead”

starts off sounding way more like a Gun’s N Roses B-side than a Van Halen song. This song definitely has an edge to it that the previous tracks have lacked, although at the expense of some catchiness. “As Is” is a drunken screaming roller-coaster ride through the Sunset Strip on a hot summer night. This is highlighted by an epic sweeping solo that will leave the listener wanting more. The song manages to squeeze together the band’s trademark progressive flair, up-tempo franticness and Roth’s attitude in just the right amounts. The riff at the beginning of “Honeybabysweetiedoll” is absolutely unstoppable, and Roth really gets his crooning going on this track. When the song goes half-time, you will be compelled to bang your head. Speaking of groove, “The Trouble with Never,” is a masterfully executed wah-wahpowered high-flying adventure. You can tell the band made a conscious effort to not let convention get in the way of writing great music, as they have for the length of their careers. “Outta Space” is an admi-

Super Bowl draws record 111.3M viewers NEW YORK (AP) — For the third consecutive year, the Super Bowl set a record as the most-watched television show in U.S. history. The Nielsen Co. said Monday that an estimated 111.3 million people watched the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots on Sunday night. That narrowly

beat the 111 million who watched Green Bay’s win over Pittsburgh last year. NBC was blessed by a competitive game between two teams that played in one of the Super Bowl’s most memorable contests four years ago, with one of them representing the largest media market in the country.

The game wasn’t over until Tom Brady’s last-second heave into the end zone dropped onto the turf. That play itself had the biggest audience of any play in the game, according to the digital video recorder maker Tivo. Nielsen said 117.7 million people were watching during the last half hour of the game. The last two Super Bowls, along with the 2010 game between New Orleans and Indianapolis and the finale of “MA-S-H” in 1983, are the only programs to exceed 100 million viewers in U.S. television history. Madonna has some bragging rights, too. Her halftime show was seen by an estimated 114 million people - a


higher average than the game itself - and was the mostwatched Super Bowl halftime entertainment show on record, Nielsen said. “I was rooting for Madonna as much as I was for the Giants,” said Tara Maitra, senior vice president of Tivo, which also monitored viewership trends during the game. The good news continued after the game for NBC, when the heavily-promoted season premiere of “The Voice” kept 37.6 million people in front of the television. Its fans were disappointed, but Boston had its highest rating ever for an NFL game on Sunday. It was the second highest-rating ever in the New York market, behind only the Giants’ first Super Bowl in 1986, Nielsen said.

rable effort, but for the first time on the album, Roth’s vocals feel strained. And, despite a unique chord progression and some interesting additional guitar work, it has the feel of a filler track. I never thought anything on this album would remind me of School House Rock but the intro to “Stay Frosty” managed to do it. The acoustic passage is abruptly ended by blasting electric guitar hits. This track features the lyric “If you want to be a monk you gotta cook a lot of rice.” Another song that sounds like it would’ve flown in the 1980s is “Big River.” If you liked any of Van Halen’s hits, you’ll like this song. “A Different Kind of Truth” reaches its conclusion with “Beats Workin.’ ” Part slow metal jam, part mid-tempo dirty groove, topped off with Roth’s wails, it’s a fitting end to the album. As a whole album, “A Different Kind of Truth” really exceeded my expectations and may even find Van Halen reaching a younger audience desperately in need of some radio rock heroes.

Freshmen forward Averee Fields dribbles the ball in the Capital Classic against Marshall Jan. 17.

associate sports editor

Coming into a large school with a storied program can be difficult to grasp for some freshman athletes. For freshman forward Averee Fields, the transition from her high school basketball team in Murray, Ky., to West Virginia has been positive due to her work ethic and confidence in herself and her teammates. The more she has learned under the direction of 11-year head coach Mike Carey, the easier her role has become

once she steps onto the court on game days. “The more playing time I get, the flow of the big game, Big East play is big-time,” Fields said. “So, as I get out there I get more comfortable each minute.” The 6-foot forward, who averaged 23.5 points and 13.1 rebounds per game as a senior in high school, has had to come off of the bench this season under Carey, but she hasn’t crumbled under the pressure. Fields is only averaging 2.5 points on the season, but it’s the little contributions she makes that don’t always get

recorded on the score sheet that has impressed her coaches and teammates so much. “(She’s a) solid player, so that’s why she’s getting some minutes,” Carey said. “She settles us down a little bit, especially if Yaya (Ayana Dunning) or somebody gets in trouble and we don’t want to put Jess (Harlee) in at the four (position). “We can put Averee (Fields) in there now, because she’s pretty solid right there. She’s not going to do anything to hurt you, but she’ll do some things to help you,” he said.

Fields said she has always been the type to look for the next pass to get her teammates involved. Her ability to pass into the low post to players like Dunning and Bussie has improved since she got to Morgantown because of the emphasis coach Carey has shown with that aspect of the game within the Mountaineers’ offense. “I’ve definitely looked to get people the ball, that’s just kind of how I play,” Fields said. “But, the emphasis in practice is to pass to the low post and be able to change hands and not give the ball away. So, I’ve

definitely gotten better since I’ve been here at passing at the high post.” Fields has been showing progress each time she gets in the game. Against South Florida last week, she had four points, one assist, two rebounds and no turnovers in just 17 minutes. In the upset against Louisville, in Fields’ home state, she was effective again, grabbing four rebounds and an assist in 10 minutes of play. She is excited to see where her current team can go as the season progresses, and is looking to continue improving

in her role coming off of the bench and helping her team in anyway she can. She knows as the team continues to get better, she will, too. “We’re excited. I think we’re finally starting to click and work together and just really connect. I feel like now were someone to be reckoned with,” Fields said. “We’re going to attack teams. You know, we’re the underdogs, but that’s how we like to be. That’s how West Virginia always is. We’re scrappy and we’re just going to get after it, so we’re excited.”

by nick arthur sports writer

Not to be overshadowed by the West Virginia football team’s recent recruiting class, the other Big East Conference Champion in Morgantown also inked an impressive list of signees. Head coach Nikki IzzoBrown and the West Virginia women’s soccer team recently announced the signing of 11 recruits for the 2012 class. Izzo-Brown and her staff saw the departure of one of the most successful senior

classes in school history. The group of six seniors compiled a record of 77-25-15. The 2012 class attempting to continue the recent trend of success includes four defenders, five midfielders and two forwards. “I am very eager to get this group of ladies on campus,” Izzo-Brown said. “The class brings a variety of skill, toughness and leadership to our team; all attributes that will help our program continue to win championships.” Three of the 11 signees are in the ESPNHS Top 150. Carly Black, a 5-foot-8 de-

fender from Horsham, Pa., is listed as the No. 72 recruit in 2012. With the departure of three seniors on the backline, it is possible Black could compete for early playing time. Halie Conroy, a 5-foot-7 defender from Highlands Ranch, Colo., is the 100thranked recruit in the class. Conroy was a four-year started at Mountain Vista high school and was twice named an all-state performer. Kailey Utley, a 5-foot-4 midfielder from St. Louis, Mo., is No. 139 in ESPNHS’ rankings. Utley is ranked No. 1 academically in her high

school class with a GPA above 4.0. The rest of the class includes: Maggie Bedillion, a 5-foot-8 defender from Washington, Pa. and a member of the National Society of High School Scholars member, Leah Emaus, a 5-foot-8 midfielder from Webster, N.Y. and a National Honor Society member; Mia Gunter, a 5-foot-1 midfielder from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; Amanda Hill, a 5-foot-6 midfielder from Washington, Pa., ranked first academically in her class with a GPA above a 4.0; Noelle Honeyc-

utt, a 5-foot-6 defender from Huntsville, Ala., who graduated with a GPA above a 4.0; Shelby Lyon, a 5-foot-6 forward from Tabernacle, N.J.; Kelsie Maloney, a 5-foot-2 forward from Harrisburg, Pa.; and Cari Price, a 5-foot-9 midfielder from Sykesville, Md. “Each individual understands what it takes to be a Mountaineer, and we look forward to helping them maximize their potential as student-athletes at WVU,” Izzo Brown said.

Following its loss to Pittsburgh last Monday, the West Virginia men’s basketball team found itself in territory it hadn’t been in all season. The Mountaineers had lost three straight Big East Conference games and was on the verge of slipping into the bubble and an NCAA tournament bid could have been in jeopardy. They needed a win against Providence Sunday. And – they got it. Not only did West Virginia win, but it did so by getting the type of performances it had been hoping to get for a long time. For a considerable amount of time Sunday afternoon, the Mountaineers were trailing. Providence started the game making just about every shot it took. And, much like in their game against St. John’s, the Mountaineers found themselves trailing by as many as 15 points in the first half. Against the Red Storm, when it was faced with a large first-half deficit, West Virginia faltered. It wasn’t able to fight its way back, mostly because the players looked to for leadership struggled to get on track. That had been a problem in all three losses. With the exception of senior forward Kevin Jones, the Mountaineers’ three upperclassmen weren’t able to play the way they had through the first 20 games of the season. When their team needed them the most, senior guard Truck Bryant and junior forward Deniz Kilicli came to play against the Friars. In the first half, it looked like Bryant was going to strug-

Responsible legislation must be specific The cost of taking care of a child with autism is a challenge for any parent. Not only is it a daily struggle in regards to education and development, but the medical costs can be overwhelming. Lawmakers attempted to ease parents’ worries last year but failed because of their inattention to detail. According to the journal Pediatrics, the annual costs of health care associated with autism rose 142 percent from 2000 to 2004. People diagnosed with autism have a lifelong battle with this developmental disabil-

ity. It is a task for them to effectively communicate with other people and understand the world we live in. It seemed like a blessing last year when the West Virginia state legislature passed a bill that required insurance companies to extend coverage to children with autism – making West Virginia the 25th state to do so. It seems, however, when writing the final version of the bill, lawmakers adjusted the language within the section explaining the cap on health coverage, which has creating much confusion. Because of lawmak-

ers’ inaccuracies within the bill, insurance companies are not paying what they should. The cap for children up to three years old is $30,000 annually – children can be diagnosed as early as 18 months – and then $2,000 monthly until age 18. Insurance companies are claiming that the cap coverage, which read “for treatments,” meant that all treatments would be capped off. Supporters of the bill are saying the cap was meant for applied behavior analysis (ABA) treatments only. It is the legislators’ faults for

not being specific with in the bill. If the cap on coverage was only meant for the ABA treatments, then it should have specifically said so. Although the insurance companies are usually the villains during situations like this, it is not entirely their wrongdoing. No matter whose fault it is for the mix-up, miscommunication, typo or whatever you want to call it, those with autism and their families are suffering. According to The Charleston Gazette, earlier versions of the bill did specifically say the caps

were for the ABA treatments, which means the language was changed. It doesn’t make much sense. If the cap was meant to be for the ABA treatments in the final version as well, why was the language changed? Lawmakers have a responsibility to write legislation that is clearly written so it can be enforced once it is passed. Debating and finger-pointing will probably continue while the families who need the health coverage will go without it.

Stop blaming consumers for America’s rampant piracy doug walp columnist

Illegal internet file sharing, also known as piracy, has been a political focus ever since Napster caught the public’s collective attention right around the turn of the millennium. More than a decade later, piracy has evolved from a simple, seemingly harmless peerto-peer file sharing process to a complex social and political conflict, where consumers find themselves the target of grievous legislation passed down from elected representatives. It’s incontrovertible; piracy is a major problem in modern America. In fact, it’s one that the Recording Industry Association of America claims leads to an annual “$12.5 billion in losses to the U.S. economy, as well as more than 70,000 lost jobs and $2 billion in lost wages to American workers.” Contrary to popular belief, it’s not a conflict that has stemmed from consumers’ greed or a sudden influx in kleptomaniac tendencies; rather, it’s a dilemma that has surfaced due to the inability of the nation’s major media industries to adequately meet our society’s demands. In other words, most illegal file sharers, or, as the Movie Picture Association of America dignifies as thieves who operate with impunity, only engage in piracy because the major American media corporations that produce the majority of our television, movies, music, software, etc., are simply not evolving quickly enough to provide us with an adequate product. Netflix, iTunes and Valve are perfect examples of how the media industries can take advantage of new, modern demands of consumers. All three services have delved into legitimate ways to provide digital media for their clientele – Netflix through its streaming video service, iTunes through its prodigious music library and Valve’s digital video game collections. All three services have shown stunning resilience to the economic downturn, but their success isn’t coincidental. In a modern period where most American media corporations have profits supremely prioritized over consumer satisfaction, these services have


Netflix reported that its 20 million subscribers streamed more than 2 billion hours of content during 2011’s final three months. adopted unconventional business models that have allowed them to reabsorb the pirates of the black market media back into the nation’s economy. Valve cofounder and CEO Gabe Newell beautifully summed up the concept during an interview with Cambridge’s Nicholas Tufnell, “We think there is a fundamental misconception about piracy. Piracy is almost always a service problem and not a pricing problem,” he said. “If a pirate offers a product anywhere in the world, 24/7, purchasable from the convenience of your personal computer, and the legal provider says the product is regionlocked, will come to your country three months after the U.S. release and can only be pur-

chased at a brick and mortar store, then the pirate’s service is more valuable.” Newell was specifically referring to Valve’s ability to introduce video games digitally in Russia at the same time the games were being released in North America and other places around the world, but the same basic concept applies to American culture in respects to television and movies – if there is a more convenient product or more valuable service available, simple economics dictates that consumers will be drawn to it. For example, American consumers currently have the choice of waiting in line for an hour, paying upwards of $20 to get a ticket and leaving an arm and leg at the snack bar

when they want to see a movie, or waiting a few months to get the movie on DVD, which of course will be replaced by another medium eventually. Alternatively, they could download the same movie to enjoy in the comfort of their own home, on a digital copy that would be consistently reusable, regardless of new technology to surface. Obviously, pirating the movie is also free, but if the major American movie industries took advantage of the available technology to provide a similar and affordable experience for the consumer at home – they could take advantage of an unfathomably large and reasonably unexploited market and would reabsorb countless consumers back into the

economy, just like Valve, Netflix and iTunes. Instead of changing their business practices and developing rational business models to better provide for their customers, the media industries and recording studios have villainized practical uses of the Internet while throwing millions of dollars at politicians in order to pass unconstitutional legislation. It’s become a sickening and perpetuating scenario, because even when consumers choose to abstain from, say, going to the movies to send a message to the industry, the movie corporation just chalks up the lost revenue to piracy, never even considering that perhaps it’s their rampant exploitation that’s driving cus-

tomers away. Despite this, one of the few options we have as consumers is to boycott Hollywood for the foreseeable future, because unfortunately the only real way to reason with these avaricious corporations is through their wallets. It might seem difficult and pointless, but I assure you – the sooner our society acknowledges how we are being exploited when it comes to the dissemination of entertainment, the sooner we will be able to force these corporations to start providing things like movies, music, television, video games and software in more convenient and efficient ways – thus also negating many of the crippling effects of piracy on our economy.

HOROSCOPES BY JACQUELINE BIGAR BORN TODAY The Full Moon on your birthday signals a very lively year with a lot of interpersonal interaction. If you are single and you can stay light and easy, you’ll discover how fun dating can be. A loved one who is a foreigner or at a distance might be distancing him- or herself even more. If you care, rope this person in! If you are attached, more often than not you will see that your sweetie offers a whole different perspective. Learn to understand his or her logic. Travel and accepting different styles might not come easily for you. Give these areas of your life a break. LEO can push your buttons! ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) HHH Just as you believed you finally got past a problem, you come to a realization -- you might not have cleared up the issue. Confusion surrounds the best of intentions. Push could come to shove if you are too confrontational. Tonight: Do your thing. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) HHHH You hear good news and want to share it. Use care when speaking to others. Some people cannot help but be jealous. Stay on top of your demands. Pressure builds if you don’t take care of yourself. Tonight: Stay close to home. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) HHHHH You are juggling more than your fair share of work and other issues. You could be very tired and drawn from dealing with a child or loved one. Don’t let someone else interfere with your plans, though you’ll have to do some juggling. Tonight: Fun and games.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) HHHH You could be taken aback by what another person shares. It could cause a problem, as you know too much and it might affect your attitude. Stay on top of a changeable situation. Juggle your way through an increasingly tense matter. Tonight: Treat time. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) HHHHH If you can accept some dissent around you, you should fare well, because ultimately your insights will point to the correct direction. You wonder what is happening behind the scenes with someone who withholds a lot. Only you can figure it out for sure. Listen to a child or someone who is conflicted, and help this person understand what is going on within him or her. Tonight: All smiles. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) HHH Remain sensitive to your inner thought process. How you handle a situation and your choices point to the correct solution. Don’t depend on anyone else. Count on you, and only you. Let laughter happen. Tonight: Play it easy. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) HHHH No one is harder on you than you are on yourself. You wonder why you treat yourself as you do and what might be the appropriate solution. A friend or several people in a meeting try to nudge you forward. Still, ultimately it is your call. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) HHHH You could feel pushed to the max. You wonder how to take some of the pressure off yourself. You might be surprised by

how easy it is to enlist people’s help. Do it more often, and smile more often! Tonight: In the limelight. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) HHHHH You naturally respond to the innate ups and downs of the day. You could be asking a lot of questions. But somehow you are able to handle what few can. A friendship causes a problem when you least expect it. It could take a while to resolve the issue. Tonight: Let your imagination rock and roll. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) HHHH Juggling a financial matter -- as you well know -- could backfire. You handle funds better than most. Why challenge your wisdom and perhaps luck? Others observe your reactions with care. Tonight: Indulge a loved one. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) HHHHH Clearly you want what you want. The issue remains what to do about a situation that is close to your heart and that could be somewhat provocative. Your sign is well known for its unpredictability. You prove it once more! Tonight: Toss yourself into living. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) HHH You have a personal matter on your mind that takes you away from others. You could think that something is off or missing in a key day-to-day matter. Don’t react; simply figure it out. A partner expresses his or her dismay at not having you more present. Tonight: Easy works. BORN TODAY Singer Garth Brooks (1962), comedian Chris Rock (1965), actor Ashton Kutcher (1978)

Members of the West Virginia rifle team shoot at targets during practice.

by alex sims sports writer

The No. 3 West Virginia rifle team fell short of winning the Great American Rifle Conference regular season title this weekend. Without the aid of their top shooter, the Mountaineers (10-2, 5-1) were dropped by the defending national champion, No. 2 Kentucky (11-1, 6-0) 4,680-4,650. WVU struggled without junior Petra Zublasing, falling to its rival in smallbore 2,315-2,294 as well as air rifle 2,365-2,356. Meanwhile, the Italian national team member struggled little while shooting at the Rocky Mountain Rifle Championships alongside some of the best shooters in the world. The Appiano, Italy native and former Mountaineer

shooter Nicco Campriani each took home the grand aggregate gold medal. Zublasing’s weekend total of 1,570 was five points higher than the silver medal finisher, Jamie Gray. Meanwhile, Campriani’s aggregate score of 4,162 put him safely ahead of 2008 Olympic silver medalist Matt Emmons, who finished at 4,149. Kentucky registered the top five smallbore and the top four air rifle scores, in a strong effort. Henri Junghanel used a match-high 580 in smallbore and a 591 in air rifle for the highest aggregate score of the match, 1,171. Freshmen Taylor Ciotola and Meelis Kiisk provided the highlight in a rough match for West Virginia, registering the top two individual scores on the squad. Ciotola used a personal best

590 in air rifle for an aggregate score of 1,165, and while Kiisk led WVU in smallbore to finish just behind with an aggregate of 1,164. “We knew it would be tough to beat them without Petra,” said West Virginia head coach Jon Hammond. “But, we would still like to shoot higher scores. Our smallbore was definitely down on what it usually is, but that’s something that’s going to keep us working.” The Mountaineers were able to bounce back Sunday in their regular season finale against No. 18 North Carolina State, earning a 4,647-4,577 victory. WVU took air rifle 2,3462,318 and smallbore 2,3012,259 for its fifth GARC and 10th overall victory to close out the regular season. Senior Justin Pentz used the highest smallbore score of the match, a 580, and a 586 in air ri-

fle to register the highest aggregate score of the match, 1,166. Kiisk had the highest air rifle score of the match with a 588, while Ciotola, Pentz, and senior Mike Kulbacki followed, each recording a 586. Freshman Dani Foster paced the Wolfpack, registering their highest air rifle and smallbore score, for their top aggregate, 1,158. Despite ending the season with a victory, Hammond is displeased with the overall performance this weekend. “It was a good chance for them to step up without Petra and put up some really good scores,” Hammond said. “But we just didn’t have that today.” Now the Mountaineers will shift focus to their NCAA qualifying match on Feb. 18 against Virginia Military Institute.

Emotional night against Pitt for WVU seniors

For the four seniors on the West Virginia wrestling team, Saturday’s match against No. 9 Pittsburgh was an emotional night. It’s never easy for any senior in sports to say goodbye to the program that has given them so much throughout their time at the University. It was no different for WVU’s Brandon Williamson, Kyle Eason, Zachary Cerrone and Matt Ryan. “Each of the guys that are graduating have contributed something unique to this program,” said head coach Craig

Turnbull. “They have all placed their name amongst the guys that have built this program to what it is today, and we are nothing but appreciative and thankful for the time they have put in.” Ryan, a transfer from Virginia Tech, still can’t believe how fast his college days have gone. “It is kind of funny,” he said. “Everyone tells you that college goes by so fast, and you just sit and deny it at first because five years is such a long time. It is crazy that it is almost over. “I am passionate about it, and I don’t think you can just

flip and switch and be done with it. You are always going to want to be a part of wrestling and the tradition here at WVU.” Eason feels his time wrestling at West Virginia will bring him out to be a better person. “It is something that I will be able to look back on and take with me,” he said. “It will be great to look back and say that I put in a lot of hard work during my five years here. It will definitely help me later in life, too.” Five years ago Eason was a freshman living at Towers. Now, he has wrestled his last match at the Coliseum this past Saturday night and has

watched his sister, Kaitlyn Eason, join the Mountaineer tradition as a freshman on the rowing team. “I was thinking the other day about how fast the whole thing has gone by,” Eason said. “It seems like just yesterday that I was a freshman living at Towers. Now my sister is here, and I am five years older than her.” As a person, Eason feels like this program has done him wonders. “I feel like it’s made me mature,” Eason said. “It has not just helped me on the mat but in the classroom. That’s the great thing about this program. There are a lot of good memo-

WVU announces award winners On Saturday evening, the West Virginia women’s soccer team held its annual banquet to honor six seniors from last season. While at the banquet, the team announced its award winners for the 2011 season. Junior Caroline Szwed was


Continued from page 5 gle again. He made two shots of his first eight shot attempts and turned the ball over once. Bryant and Kilicli, along with another steady performance by Jones, were masterful in the final 20 minutes, when the game was on the line. Bryant made seemingly every clutch shot he took toward the end of the game, including the eventual gamewinning three-pointer with 10 seconds to play in overtime and a layup to tie the game with four seconds to play in regulation to force overtime. He finished with 32 points, and Kilicli had his first

ries. Just growing up with these guys.” Against Pitt, heavyweight Brandon Williamson and Matt Ryan were able to capture victories, while Kyle Eason fell in a close match 4-2. Ryan was able to earn a 2-1 victory, while Williamson, who battled illness throughout the day, was victorious 7-2. “Heavyweight, I was really proud of,” Turnbull said. “I was only planning on wrestling him if the match was on the line. I tried to convince him, but he was pretty forceful. I said if you want to wrestle, you have to win. No matter how you feel, you got to do it.

It was against my better judgment, but those kinds of things are good for you. “That was a great effort. There were matches that were even up, and the crowd was pulling for us.” Needless to say this resiliency will be missed by these group of seniors. Brandon Williamson, Kyle Eason and Matt Ryan all graced the WVU Coliseum for one last time with their heart, passion and dedication against Pitt. Their efforts will certainly be remembered by the Mountaineer faithful.

named the most valuable player. Szwed only recorded four points on the season, but her play at midfield proved to be a catalyst of the team. Senior defender Drea Barklage earned honors for the team’s most defensive player. Barklage and the backline helped record 11 shutouts. Senior forward Blake Miller was named the team’s most offensive player. It is the third straight season Miller earned the award. Freshman forward Kate Schwindel earned the team’s most improved player.

Schwindel recorded six goals and seven assists last season. Senior forward Erica Henderson, who was recently drafted by the Western New York Flash, was selected for the Mountaineer S.O.C.C.E.R. award. The award represents a player who displays good sportsmanship, optimism, character, concern, effort and respect. The S.O.C.C.E.R award isdecided by the coaches, while all other awards are voted on by the players.

20-point game of his career, finishing with 22. Those two contributing the way they did made it easier on Jones, who has had to carry this team the whole season. There were plenty of chances in that game for the Mountaineers to lay down and quit like it had done so much over the three games before they took down the Friars. They didn’t do that Sunday. They understood what the game meant, and the three upperclassmen did their part in making sure the losing streak stopped there. Their work isn’t done yet, though. From here on out, every game will be just as impor-

tant as Sunday’s was. WVU has to come to play every night if it wants to continue to polish its resume for the NCAA tournament. Jones, Bryant and Kilicli all have the ability to step up and make big plays to help push West Virginia to a win. Truck showed that ability at the end of the Providence game, and it helped end the terrible slump the Mountaineers had been in. But, they can’t be satisfied with that. They have to carry that momentum over to Wednesday’s game against Notre Dame and throughout the rest of the season.
