City approves land sale to WVU by bryan bumgardner associate city editor

Morgantown City Council met Tuesday night and unanimously agreed to an ordinance that gives West Virginia University ownership of real estate on Falling Run Road, near Oglebay Hall. This ordinance was formed in the wake of a previous agreement about

1.1 acres that were repurchased by the University. The WVU Board of Governors approved a motion to purchase this land at its Sept. 28 meeting. “On behalf of the University, the project is an exciting opportunity for us to partner with the City, the Housing Economic Development Group and United Bank to merge very diverse properties and ultimately

end up with a project that will be good for the city and the University,” said Randy Hudak, Associate Vice President of Facilities and Services at WVU. During the public session, a number of clauses in the agreement were challenged, leading the council into discussion. “If we act on this agreement, we are premature in our assessment,” said local

property owner James Giuliani. “We would be derelict if we acted on what is before us, on what’s in this agreement.” Giuliani argued about a discrepancy between the University’s public promises about future construction on the site and an alleged clause in the agreement that absolves the University of responsibility to uphold said promises.

“There seems to be a lot of clauses in here that are questionable as to how they’re beneficial to the city of Morgantown," Giuliani said. “If I was West Virginia University, I wouldn’t have a problem with this agreement at all, because it says they can do as little or as much as they want.” Hudak said because of space limitations in the

WVU celebrates 20 years of peace with annual Peace Tree ceremony By Kaity Wilson Staff Writer

The sound of a beating Native American drum from the center of West Virginia University’s Downtown campus summoned many to come together for the University’s annual Peace Tree Ceremony Tuesday. The ceremony is part of WVU’s annual Diversity Week. It celebrated the 20th anniversary of the planting of the original Peace Tree and the University’s commitment to the rediscovery of Native American heritages. “It is a time for us each year to come together,” said WVU Native American Studies Coordinator Bonnie Brown. “It shows we have unity in our diversity.” Eberly College of Arts and Sciences Dean Bob Jones began there ceremony with a welcome and quoted words from famous Native Americans. Jones compared their philosophies to the goals of WVU in relation to diversity. “We try to develop the concept of inclusive excellence,” he said. “Together we solve problems better with

SGA Speak-Up discusses riots, solutions Staff Writer

The West Virginia University Student Government Association sponsored a Speak-Up Tuesday to discuss solutions and alternatives to the postgame mayhem following the WVU-Texas game. Dan i el B r u m mag e, Speak-Up Administrator and former SGA Chief-ofStaff, said the goal of the

discussion was to host a student-led conversation to generate positive solutions to the issue. Along with approximately 30 members of the WVU community, Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs Communications Sabrina Cave and Student Body Vice President Jarred Zuccari, Brummage and University Police Officer Travis Snuffer were in attendance to partici-

pate in the discussion. Brooke Andrews, a recent homecoming queen candidate, expressed her concerns involving bystanders getting peppersprayed during the riots. According to Andrews, the situation on High Street appeared to be under control. Andrews said she did not see illegal activity but students simply dancing, singing and celebrating in the street.

“I mean, if I go down the road dancing and singing, am I going to get peppersprayed?” Andrews said. However, as one of the first officers to arrive on the scene, Snuffer discussed a much different experience on Grant Avenue. “Cars were pushed over and a light pole was knocked down, and even then, none of us were spraying or anything

For Kent Weeks, bullying is not just an issue faced on the elementary school playgrounds – it’s an issue prevalent on college campuses. As a part of Diversity Week at West Virginia University, the Nashville, Tenn., author and attorney presented “Civility Moving Forward” Tuesday in the Mountainlair. Weeks said the subject is one he passionate about and is included in his research on the topic of “Passive Bullying: How Bystanders Control Harassment.” Weeks shared his passionate views toward bullying in the college setting – something he believes many either ignore or are unaware of. “I wanted to help students, educators and the general public become aware of and begin to talk about the issues surrounding bullying and civility in the college setting,” he said. Weeks began his discussion by addressing the main issue: bullying and the civility that can be

used to help reduce and eliminate the issue within a community. Weeks defined bullying as “the use of force or coercion to abuse others or influence them in ways that are harmful.” Weeks also discussed civility, which he defined as “a sense of community and the notion of responsibility to help form this sense of community.” He emphasized this tied with the ancient Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would do unto yourself”. Weeks shared the importance of third party actions that can be taken when encountering bullying. He discussed measures a person who is experiencing bullying from a thirdperson point of view can take in a stand against the bully. Weeks incorporated descriptions of real-life situations within his presentation so the audience could discuss possible solutions to these situations. At one point during the presentation, the audience was divided into four small groups and given

There were 70 young men gathered at the corner of Sixth Street and McLane Avenue. Two of the oldest boys stood in the center, pointed in different directions and called names, their voices silenced only after there were two even teams of 35. Then, on that warm summer day in 1957, the game began. Bill Pavone was 17 years old at the time and the captain of his team. He was entering his senior year of high school and lived at 604 McLane Ave. for most of his life. “We would play football in the streets sometimes,” Pavone said. “But everybody’s favorite was ‘Kick the Can.’” Today, children no longer play football or tag on

the streets of Sunnyside. Instead ,the area consists of 100-year-old houses in need of repair. The streets are littered with beer cans, Solo cups and broken glass bottles. Students throw parties and hold riots in the streets. Amid today’s Sunnyside neighborhood, there are a few well-kept remnants of the Sunnyside of old. Older members of the community live in homes they have lived in their entire lives. They remain close with the few childhood neighbors they have left and tolerate the new neighbors that fill the majority of houses in the area. Most of the boys who played that day with Pavone in 1957 are long gone from Sunnyside, but Pavone still resides on the corner of Sixth and McLane

Continued from page 1 until bricks and things were thrown at our faces,” Snuffer said. “When they start throwing stuff, that’s when we escalate our level of force and try to get everyone out of the area.” According to Snuffer, pepper spray was utilized only after police requested those in the street to disperse. Snuffer said no one followed the police officers’ requests, so pepper-spray was used to gain control of the crowd. SGA member Farah Famouri has been a resident of Morgantown her entire life. Famouri said she never remembers the couch burnings and rioting to be this severe. “The biggest problem is that we don’t have a designated place to go after the games,” Famouri said. SGA Governor Dillon Knox said he agreed with Famouri and said he strongly believes students want to celebrate together after big wins. “Everyone just wants to be united and be a Mountaineer together,” Knox

said. Controlled post-game after parties were offered as a suggestion. Sponsored parties would include controlled alcohol sales, food and increased security – similar to events such as FallFest. Other ideas, including sponsored game-watch parties at the Coliseum, were brought to the table for discussion. Many also suggested having a University-sponsored controlled burning. However, Brummage said he believes the issue isn’t during the game – it’s after. Because of to issues surrounding city law and the availability of resources, the group determined controlled burnings may not prove to be the best option. SGA Governor Ryan Campione suggested having a set time after a win to meet at Woodburn Hall, lighting the building and playing “Country Roads” as a positive alternative to the rioting. “We need a cultural change,” Campione said. “‘Country Roads’ playing in the stadium after games became a tradition over time to prevent everyone from rushing the field.”

Snuffer said the plan for this weekend’s post-game procedure is to increase the number of officers present in high-fire areas. SGA Chief-of-Staff Earl Hewitt said he spoke with University Police Chief Bob Roberts and discussed an idea used at Penn State following riots in 2008. By examining local alcohol sales, Penn State determined the amount of police officers needed for the weekend. Hewitt said although the effort took much time and hard work, it has largely combatted the issue at Penn State and could be effective in Morgantown. Cave said while finding a solution is necessary, she believes change will not take place immediately. “This won’t be solved overnight, but I empower each of you to speak up because peers listen to peers,” she said. “These are your ideas. It’ll be a tradition that you all start. We can help get the word out and help create it, but students will be the ones that have to go out and embrace it. We can’t do it without your help.”

to put pressure on bullying and increase civility within the community,” Weeks said. The issue of bullying vs. civility is a constant struggle within communities, but public figures like Weeks are attempting to spread the word on how to fight and discontinue this issue. For more information refer to Weeks’s book, “In Search of Civility: Confronting Incivility on the College Campus," which further discusses these topics and gives solutions and techniques.

after all these years. He can recall those long days spent running up and down the streets of Sunnyside and Seneca. “When there were that many guys, we kept playing until everybody had to go in for supper,” Pavone said. “We were competitive, but it didn’t really matter who won because there was always a game the next day.” Many residents today are unaware the Sunnyside ward of Morgantown ends at Third Street. From there the Seneca ward begins and continues past Eighth Street. According to Justin M. Kunkle, compiler of the 1903 version of “The New Dominion,” the two areas were developed in the 1890s to accommodate the housing needs of local glass-factory workers. After 55 years, the two wards – spanning the entirety of University, Beverly, Grant, McLane and Beechurst Avenues from Stewart Street to Ninth Street – have blended into one and are now commonly referred to as Sunnyside. In the 1950s and 1960s, Sunnyside, because of its proximity to the University, was developed into off-campus student housing. fifty-year-old houses were separated into apartment units and rented to students at low costs. Pavone, now 72 years old, said he believes most people living in this area when he was growing up worked in the glass factories on Beechurst Avenue. In his opinion, many moved away because of a lack of work in the 1970s and 1980s. According to “Morgantown: A Bicentennial History,” the Morgantown Glassware Guild stopped production in 1971, and the Seneca Glass Company followed suit in 1983. As one of the largest industries in Morgantown started to disappear, so too did the employees.

of 1992. However, in August of 1996 the tree was cut down by vandals. Another tree was then planted in its place and included a staff made from he remains of the original tree. The staff was carried by an ROTC student during Tuesday’s ceremony. The great white pine tree was selected to be planted because it never loses its needles; it always remains green, High said. High said the event is meant serve as a reminder to the WVU community that peace should stay evergreen, just as the tree does. “It needs to stay fresh before our eyes,” she said. High said the needles of the tree are often in bundles of five, which represents the five Iroquois nations who originally joined together to celebrate peace hundreds of years ago. The tree also has four white roots: each pointing in the four cardinal directions. “Anyone who is will-

ing to think of peace can follow these roots,” High said. Another guest at the ceremony was an American Bald Eagle named Thunder and his handler Mike Book from the West Virginia Raptor Rehabilitation Center. The eagle is a Native American symbol for the culture’s desire to remain vigilant and keep watchful so as not to disrupt the peace, High said. An Army veteran was brought forward to place a club under the tree to symbolize the Iroquois’ belief in laying down of weapons. “To the Iroquois, peace is not just the absence of war,” High said. “Peace has to be earned.” Afterward, members of the audience were invited to share in the tradition of tying prayer ribbons into the tree. The tying of ribbons represents individual prayers for peace. “Peace is not just for us, it’s for all those coming,. ou can’t chop peace down.”

lieves Morgantown’s recent inclusion of the International Town & Gown Association gives the city an opportunity. “It makes sense for us to figure out, does that committee become something more than just ‘feel-good,’” he said. “We need to have WVU

decision makers on that committee, maybe the mayor. You’ve got to look at this as a holistic thing.” The Morgantown City Council will hold its next meeting Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. in the Morgantown Municipal Building.

At the end of Grant Avenue, there stands a fragment of Morgantown history that has refused to yield to the ongoing encroachment of off-campus housing. Down Hardy St., a small road many confuse for a driveway, a 92-year-old woman named Eneide Morony lives by herself in the house her father built in 1924. “My father sent for my mother, my three sisters and me in 1930 when he became a citizen,” Morony said. “This area was full of immigrated families from Italy, Germany, Poland, France and England.” The pink-and-gray shingled house stands alongside the other unkept buildings that dominate the streets of Sunnyside. Today, this home is an anomaly among the historic ward of Sunnyside, but in 1930 it was an excellent complement to the surrounding community. “When I was growing up, everybody had a porch, and families would take turns hosting others,” Morony said. “My parents and the neighbors talked and played cards, and we played in the yard.” Morony has lived at 308 Hardy St. for 82 years and at one time said she knew each of the two-dozen neighbors in every house up to Sixth Street. Now, she only knows two. “Those that were still here after the school started growing in the 1950s and 1960s were uprooted from their homes about 20 years ago,” Morony said. Gene and Joyce Aitkens, Morony’s neighbors of 69 years, said they believe as West Virginia University became known as a party school, the remaining families in Sunnyside packed up and moved away. “When the block parties and the couch fires started, the few who had stayed decided it was time to move on,” Gene Aitkens said. For these retired Morgantown citizens, life is simple, and for the most part, they said they aren’t bothered by the college lifestyle sur-

rounding them. Yet, the occasional disturbance takes a toll on them. “There’s always kids urinating in the yard or kicking over the trash cans,” Joyce Aitkens said. “It’s when you wake up to find two kids smoking in your garage in the middle of the night that you start to get annoyed.” Bill Rodd, a lab-animal technician at WVU, lives across the street from the Aitkens and has shared similar experiences. “One morning, I hear a rumble and a bang, so I walked outside and I saw Gene Aitkens outside looking toward my house,” Rodd said. “Sure enough, a kid was ripping off the hose on the side of the house while his buddy was in the car waiting to drive away.” Morony was also disturbed late one night by an intoxicated college student demanding to be let into what he believed was his house. After the man broke a window in the back of the house, he stumbled off. These Sunnyside residents have had their fair share of unpleasant run-ins with college students, but they said they understand what this town is now and don’t regret what Sunnyside has become. “People complain about the damage students cause to Sunnyside, Seneca and the town in general,” Pavone said. “But without the University and these college kids, this would be a ghost town. WVU has kept Morgantown alive when its other industries couldn’t.” The family community developed by working class citizens in the early 1900s has long since disappeared from this area. The very few who remain hold the memories of the old Sunnyside close to their hearts and said they are determined to remain an integral part of today’s Sunnyside. “Maybe if this house had rollers,” Morony said. “But it doesn’t, and I won’t leave Seneca. This is my home.”

‘On the Water’ Future Islands

‘Twins’ Ty Segall



As a minimalist band that already boasts two supreme efforts, one would expect Future Islands to start to run out of material. However, that is not the case. “On the Water,� the band’s most recent album, definitely deserves recognition. Released on Thrill Jockey Records, not only does this album have catchy songs that make you want to bob your head back and forth, but the live version is just as good. After playing at local venue 123 Pleasant Street last February, many people have expressed the desire to have them back. Lead singer Samuel Herring captures the audience’s attention by maintaining intense, deep eye contact. He is an incredible performer, and it shows as he dramatically dances and moves. The other two members keep the band together with their synth-pop melodies and distinct bass parts. Consequently, “On the Water� embodies a lot of emotion, from the slow and heavy bass riffs to the powerful baritone vocals. Some of the slower songs convince you he was in the studio recording as if he’d been crying from burying his childhood dog. “Give Us the Wind� is a recommended track if that is something that interests you. The single off the album, “Balance,� is a more uplifting track, with lyrics that encourage you to not worry and to remind yourself that you are in control of change if you need it. “And you can clean around the wound if you want to/ it just takes time/ and you can go to the moon/ but it you want something to change/ you gotta change your life� begins the song, and it continues to encourage patience while a calm, repetitive synth part follows to its conclusion, where the sound of waves crashing ties it all together. “On the Water� is another sensational effort from Future Islands, and I highly recommended the tracks “Balance,�“Give Us the Wind,�“The Great Fire� and “Before the Bridge.�

Former Epsilons frontman Ty Segall has released his fifth solo record, “Twins.� Segall has been a Morgantown favorite since U92 FM hosted his performance at 123 Pleasant Street last January. Growing up in Orange County, Calif., Segall has always been in the underground rock scene. As the years passed, he has shown even more promise with his carefree attitude and progressive guitar sounds. He pounds out the drums, as well. Segall is without a doubt one of the best guitar sound engineers of our time. “Twins� will induce nostalgia, as it sounds like a clever garage rock all-star combo. It’s got the bite of The Stooges, the convoluted blare of Sonic Youth, the muddiness of Nirvana, the whammy bar insanity of the Butthole Surfers and the dirtiness The Flaming Lips effortlessly constructs. On top of that, the ghost of John Lennon constantly possesses his distorted vocals. He bends the boundaries of his gritty garage sound into grungy noise rock and back again. The layers of guitar are so strongly united, it is hard to peel them away. As great as Segall is at perfecting his sound and attitude, his song writing lacks a bold statement. In typical fashion with this genre of music, the album feels more like a compilation of tracks than a single piece of work and fails to reach a larger dynamic. This is not to say the album doesn’t contain variety, but it is built simply on a shallow level of thought. The drum sounds show room for experimentation. They seem unfit behind all the distorted guitar and vocals; however, this may be what Segall was going for to ensure structure between all the madness. All things considered, the album is more appropriate for its own style and contains a certain magic. We are sure to see more growth from the 25-year-old Segall in the future.



Hilary Mantel wins Second Booker Prize for Tudor saga LONDON (AP) — British writer Hilary Mantel won the prestigious Booker literary prize for a second time Tuesday with her blood-soaked Tudor saga “Bring Up the Bodies,� which the head of the judging panel said had “rewritten the book� on historical fiction. Mantel, who took the 50,000 pound ($82,000) award in 2009 for “Wolf Hall,� is the first British author, and the first woman, to achieve a Booker double. “You wait 20 years for a Booker Prize, and two come along at once,� Mantel said as she accepted the award at London’s medieval Guildhall. “I regard this as an act of faith and a vote of confidence.� Mantel, who quipped in 2009 that she planned to spend her prize money on sex and drugs and rock `n’ roll, said “I’m afraid the answer will be much duller this year.� “Rehab,� she joked, before adding: “My pension, probably.� “Bring Up the Bodies� is the first sequel to win the prize. It and “Wolf Hall� are parts of a planned trilogy about Thomas Cromwell, the powerful and ambiguous chief minister to King Henry VIII. Alternately thoughtful and thuggish, trying to keep his head in a treacherous world, Mantel’s Cromwell has drawn comparisons to the Mafia don at the center of the “Godfather� saga, and Mantel’s novel combines finely wrought prose with thriller touches. “You can see as much Don Corleone in this book as D.H. Lawrence,� said Times Literary Supplement editor Peter Stothard, who chaired the Booker judging panel. “This is a bloody story,� he said. “But Hilary Mantel is a writer who thinks through the blood. She uses her art, her power of prose, to create moral

ambiguity.� “Bring Up the Bodies� traces the intertwined fates of Cromwell and the monarch’s second wife, Anne Boleyn, who fell from favor when she failed to produce a male heir. Stothard said the new book “utterly surpassed� the earlier novel, breathing new life into a wellknown story. Henry VIII’s reign has inspired many fictional treatments, from the acclaimed play and film “A Man for All Seasons� to the soapy TV series “The Tudors.� Stothard said “Bring Up the Bodies� showed “the greatest modern English prose writer reviving possibly one of the bestknown pieces of English history.� “This is all well-trodden territory with an inevitable outcome, and yet she is able to bring it to life as though for the first time,� he said. “She has rewritten the book on writing historical fiction.� The judging panel, which included “Downton Abbey� actor Dan Stevens, met for just over two hours Tuesday to pick its winner. The Booker, established in 1969, usually brings a huge sales and publicity boost for the winner. Before she won three years ago, Mantel was a critically praised but commercially lukewarm author of novels about everything from the French Revolution (“A Place of Greater Safety�) to the life of a psychic medium (“Beyond

Black�). Now, the 60-yearold author is a best-selling literary sensation. “My publishers were always announcing my breakthrough book and it never really happened,� she said of her early career. “My luck began to turn when I met Thomas Cromwell.� Mantel joins Peter Carey of Australia and J.M. Coetzee of South Africa as a two-time winner of the prize, which is open to writers from Britain, Ireland and the Commonwealth of former British colonies. Mantel beat five other shortlisted books to take the prize. She had been the bookies’ favorite, although Britain’s Will Self was also considered a strong contender for the centuryspanning stream of consciousness “Umbrella.� Indian poet Jeet Thayil was nominated for his first novel, “Narcopolis,� set among heroin addicts in 1970s and 80s Mumbai, and Britain’s Alison Moore for “The Lighthouse,� about a middleaged man’s life-changing ferry trip to Germany. The other finalists were Malaysia’s Tan Twan Eng for “The Garden of Evening Mists,� which centers on a survivor of a World War II Japanese prison camp; and South Africa-born Briton Deborah Levy for “Swimming Home,� a portrait of the devastation wreaked by depression. The prize – officially known as the Man Booker Prize after its sponsor, fi-

nancial services firm Man Group PLC – always sparks a flurry of betting, and a blaze of literary debate. Last year’s jury, which gave the prize to Julian Barnes for “The Sense of an Ending,� was accused of dumbing down after the chair of the panel said finalists had been chosen for “readability.� This year’s list was more adventurous. Only Mantel had been a finalist before, and Self is a relentlessly modernist experimenter, while Tan, Levy and Moore are all published by small independent publishers. Mantel’s book was the best-seller on the shortlist, and will now sell in even bigger numbers. “Wolf Hall� and “Bring Up the Bodies� also are being adapted for television by the BBC, and a stage version is in the works. But Mantel said she was trying not to feel the pressure. Lefteris Pitarakis/AP “It is not the Olympics,� Hilary Mantel poses after being announced the winner of the Man Booker Prize. she said. “It is not a competition. You are only as good as your last paragraph – and I haven’t even written one of those today. “When I start writing again, I’ll forget all this, because every day has got its new problems and every day you feel like a beginner. ... It’s just you struggling with your subject matter and a blank screen.�

OPINION 11 years later: The invisible war 4

Wednesday October 17, 2012

By the end of a 90 minute debate Tuesday night, President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney discussed a variety of topics, which included immigration reform, health care and the automobile industry bailout. This debate, which was moderated by CNN’s Candy Crowley took on a town hall format,and was the second of the three scheduled debates. Unlike the first de-

bate, which was devoted exclusively to domestic policy, this debate was supposed to include both foreign and domestic policy. However, after 90 minutes, there was only one question about foreign policy, and it was about the recent terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Although there is still one debate to go, which will be entirely dedicated to foreign policy matters, there

has been a glaring omission of discussion of the war in Afghanistan by either candidate, up until this point. This, despite the fact that the war in Afghanistan has resulted in the deaths of more than 2,000 U.S. servicemen, more than 10,000 Afghan civilians and a tab of more than $500 billion of U.S. taxpayer funding. At a time when legislatures across the country are slashing budgets for

schools and fire departments, how can we justify our spending of this outrageous sum of money in Afghanistan? It’s been more than 11 years, and the war in Afghanistan is now the longest war in American history. With Osama bin Laden dead, and our continued covert wars in Yemen and Pakistan, it is hard to rationalize our remaining

presence in Afghanistan. Obama’s decision to double down there was a mistake we continue to pay for. This should be a hotly debated issue this election season. Yet, with Election Day only three weeks away and based on how little this war has been discussed, one wouldn’t even know it’s still going on.

U.S must get tougher on Iran before it is too late derrik whitlow correspondent

The situation in Iran may soon come to a boiling point. Whatever the outcome between the West and Iran, one thing is certain – there is no easy answer on how to deal with Iran. Conventional wisdom for several years has been that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapon despite their ardent claims that they are only seeking to use nuclear technology for peaceful means. Whether people like it or not, Iran is absolutely entitled to the use of nuclear en-


ergy for civilian purposes; however, under no circumstances must the U.S. let Iran get its hands on nuclear weapons. Whether or not we take the lead on this issue, the world is going to watch what the U.S. does before any steps are taken for or against. Leave no doubt; despite the recession and all of the other issues facing the U.S., we are still the single greatest military hegemony on the world stage. It may sound like I am preaching to the choir with the usual tag line of “Iran must never get a nuclear weapon” talk; however, given the regional and for that matter, global, implication, the U.S. has no choice but to take a strong stand on this issue.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently issued a stern warning to the U.N.– a clear red line must be drawn. I may not agree with how the Israeli Prime Minister has handled the situation at times. Nonetheless, he is a 100% correct on the notion a clear line must be drawn. This is where, metaphorically, the rubber meets the road. Where does the line get drawn? What are the repercussions for crossing that supposed line? What happens if we do decide to act militarily, or more importantly, what happens we if do not act? These are all incredibly tough questions that have potentially earth-shattering

ramifications. In the end, we must decide what is the best worst-case scenario. Now, for some the answer is cut and dry: we should blow Iran’s nuclear facilities to smithereens. Though, the answer is clearly not that simple. This is an incredibility nuanced issue that goes far beyond what a single article can elaborate on. If the West fails to curtail Iran’s current trajectory, leave no doubt, the nation of Israel will act decisively ,despite the overwhelming risk such a move poses. Aside from doing nothing and letting Iran get a nuke, this, in my belief, is the absolute worst case scenario. Many fear this could have a cataclysmic domino effect

that would lead to a regional war or something even bigger. With the entire Middle East already being a powder keg, this could be the match that sparks the fire. This is why the U.S.’s leadership is so pivotal in finding a solution, even if the only solution is the U.S. taking military action. In that scenario, the US must not take the irrational and hasty steps it did in Iraq under somewhat similar circumstances. We must build a strong coalition with our allies around the world. Many fear though the administration is taking their eye off the ball during election season, and the internal strife between the U.S. and Israel over how to handle the situation seems to be

growing. If nothing changes I do believe the U.S. will launch a massive air strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. However, this will come with a heavy cost given the kind of reaction it will elicit from Iran militarily. Given the far more stark possible outcomes of the other scenarios, this is likely least unfavorable of all three hellish scenarios. The U.S.’s massive ability to project an overwhelming use of force will keep Iran’s reaction more limited than what it would be otherwise. It will also send the message that despite the overwhelming risks involved, we will still act if no other options are left on the table.

BORN TODAY This year you’ll be able to make a long-term dream a reality. You might consider writing down your dreams, as that also could lead you to what you want. Be aware of a heightened sensitivity involving your intuition, and note any premonitions you get as a result. If you are single, you could meet someone in your day-to-day travels.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) HHHH Reach out to others. Those who are wise seek feedback in order to test out an idea. During this process, an even better idea might pop up. Do not allow your ego to get involved if someone has sounder concepts than you; instead, welcome them. Brainstorm away! Tonight: Your instincts could mislead you. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) HHHHH Relate to others directly, and know what it is that you desire. Friends and/or loved ones might think they know what they want, but in reality, their ideas come across garbled. If they allow it, you will need to help these individuals organize their thoughts in a way that makes more sense. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.” GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) HHHH Defer to others, and make it a point to let them know that you trust them to make good choices. Then step back and observe. You might be clearing up a disagreement or power play now that they can see what it is like to run the show. Tonight: Say “yes” to someone. C ANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)

HHHH All work and no play is not a healthy lifestyle. More than other signs, you have a tendency to swing from one emotional extreme to the other. You need to maintain a healthy amount of physical activity, as that is the key to keeping your stress level down. You might feel uneasy about an upcoming trip or a call coming in. Tonight: Work on getting physical.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) HHHH You often exude confidence, yet right now, you are working on a faulty premise for which you do not have all the facts. It is likely that you could be hearing only what you want to hear without realizing it. Center yourself, and go back over an important decision in your mind. Tonight: Happy at home. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) HHHH Listen to news from someone who has easy access to you. You’ll want to rethink a decision involving a partner. You might not be seeing the whole picture or the people involved clearly. You can only come from your own perspective. Let a friend play devil’s advocate. Tonight: Hang out with your pals. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) HHH News heads your way that involves your finances or an offer pertaining to money. Though the other person might have good intentions, there could be a lastminute hassle or problem that arises. Do not spend funds before you get them. Tonight: Do your thing. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) HHH You enjoy the dreamlike mood you are in, yet you might not be as realistic as you would like to be. Consider the possibility that a risk could backfire and leave you feeling unhappy. Use your dreams as a starting point

Downtown yoga studio opens doors


Power Yoga Studio brings the discipline of yoga to Spruce Street in downtown Morgantown.

by natalie snyder A&E writer

Power Yoga Studio has had its heart, mind and doors officially open for one month. Amanda Love and Jared Callahan are the creators of the Spruce Street studio, which serves as the only yoga studio downtown. Not only does Love instruct yoga, she also teaches at a high school in Pennsylvania during the week. Love is also an alumna of WVU,

and she graduated in 2005 with a degree in industrial engineering. She later went back to school for a Master’s degree in math education. Callahan’s background and experience readily reflect his interest in yoga. From being a river guide on the Upper and Lower Youghiogheny River to serving as a ski instructor in Breckenridge, Colo., Callahan has certainly made his hobbies his occupations. Love and Callahan were inspired by an instructor

in Pennsylvania and have been practicing yoga for approximately three years . Love said the idea to start a business simply came from practicing the discipline. “If you do it regularly, it can have an impact on your life,” Love said. “A positive impact.” The studio’s name can be deceiving, as it implies a specialized strength-training type of yoga, but it really comes from the idea of “empowering” oneself. Love stresses not only the

physical benefits from yoga, but also the aid it can provide one’s mental and psychological being. “Yoga helps develop an awareness that you can take with you outside the studio.” The studio focuses on a type of yoga called Power Vinyasa Flow that is derived from Ashtanga yoga. Vinyasa yoga is the practice of fluid movements between postures with deep breathing Love said helps develop concentration.

The classes are recommended for all levels, and each instructor is knowledgeable of alternative poses for each level. Love says you’re bound to leave the class feeling stronger. She also acknowledges the misconception that yoga is seen as a just a method of stretching and emphasizes coming in with an open mind to prepare you to leave with the tools to better your physical and mental life. Callahan also recom-

mends these practices for athletes to help develop core strength and general fitness. The studio is offering a new deal of $25 for two weeks of unlimited classes. The detailed schedule can be found on the website, Power Yoga also offers discounts to students and faculty of all schools in the area. daa&

Varied returns for 3 Wednesday shows; ‘Arrow’ a CW hit NEW YORK (AP) — An evening of delayed premieres for the networks last week ended with a bang, a solid thump and a fizzle. ABC, NBC and the CW all debuted new dramas last

Wednesday to varied receptions. The bang went to the CW network and its fantasy series “Arrow,” about a character who is a millionaire playboy by day and a vigilante at night. The 4.1 million

viewers reported by Nielsen wouldn’t seem much by larger network standards, but for the good-news-starved CW, it was the most-watched show since 2009. ABC’s “Nashville” was one

of the year’s best-reviewed new shows, and the nearly 9 million people who sampled its first episode made it the network’s third mostwatched drama. It finished a strong second behind CBS’ long-running “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” at the 10 p.m. ET slot. At the same time, NBC’s new “Chicago Fire” might need a shot of lighter fluid. The new drama reached 6.6 million people with its premiere. Despite that showing, long-slumping NBC can boast about its best showing for an early TV season in a decade. For the third week in a row, it won among the 18-to-49-year-old age demographic that it considers most important. Pro football and “The Voice” led the way. Stalwart CBS, as it has most weeks, won among all viewers. Its Tuesday night

one-two punch of “NCIS” and the spinoff “NCIS: Los Angeles” is the network’s most popular. CBS had an average of 9.7 million viewers in prime time (6.3 rating, 10 share). NBC had 8.1 million (5.0, 8), ABC had 8 million (5.2, 8), Fox had 6.1 million (3.7, 6), the CW had 2 million (1.2, 2) and ION Television had 1.1 million (0.6, 1). Among the Spanish-language networks, Univision led with a 3.7 million primetime average (2.0, 3). Telemundo had 1.1 million (0.6, 1), TeleFutura had 650,000 (0.2, 1), Estrella had 230,000 and Azteca 110,000 (both 0.1, 0). NBC’s “Nightly News” topped the evening newscasts with an average of 7.7 million viewers (5.2, 10). ABC’s “World News” was second with 7.2 million (4.9, 10) and the “CBS Evening News”

had 6.1 million viewers (4.2, 8). A ratings point represents 1,147,000 households, or 1 percent of the nation’s estimated 114.7 million TV homes. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show. For the week of Oct. 8-14, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: NFL Football: Green Bay at Houston, NBC, 19.92 million; “NCIS,” CBS, 18.51 million; “Sunday Night NFL Pre-Kick,” NBC, 15.72 million; “NCIS: Los Angeles,” CBS, 15.18 million; “The Big Bang Theory,” CBS, 14.23 million; “Dancing With the Stars,” ABC, 13.55 million; “Dancing With the Stars Results,” ABC, 13.33 million; “The Voice” (Monday), NBC, 12.89 million; “Modern Family” (Wednesday, 9:30 p.m.), ABC, 12.31 million; “The Voice” (Tuesday), 12.19 million.

Illustrious senior class making its mark

On the night the West Virginia women’s soccer team sealed its 11th straight game without a loss last Friday against Baylor, seniors Bry McCarthy, Mallory Smith, Bri Rodriguez and Nicolette DeLaurentis were honored during a postgame ceremony. “You look at their overall record, and you know they rank in the top 25 (in program history),” said head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. “It’s a special group. It’s a group that came in and did special things.” Since tying with Baylor on the night they were honored, this group of seniors has obtained a record of 54-21-10 during their four years in the program under Izzo-Brown. They won the 2011 and 2012 Big East championships before darting to the Big 12, where they currently sit in first place. They are the first team in the program’s history to beat a No. 1-ranked team after defeating Stanford earlier this season, and during their four years at West Virginia, they have beaten seven teams ranked in the top 10. The most talented senior, McCarthy is a preseason Hermann Trophy finalist and has anchored the backline since her sophomore season while leading the Mountaineer defense to 31 shutouts during the last three years. This past summer, McCarthy spent her time training with the Canadian national team as they prepared for the London Olympics. McCarthy was the last defender cut before the team solidified their Olympic roster.

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein leads the No. 4 Wildcats into this weekend’s showdown against No. 13 West Virginia. Klein has thrown for 1,074 yards and has 510 yards rushing with 17 total touchdowns.

No. 13 Mountaineers to face different style of offense Saturday By Nick Arthur

Associate Sports editor

Life in the Big 12 Conference is rough for any defense, especially one outfitted with a new defensive coordinator, a different alignment and inexperienced players across the roster. This unfortunate combination for the No. 13 West Virginia football team has left the Mountaineer defense ranked 112th in the nation in points allowed, something fans in Morgantown are particularly used to.

And the chore won’t get any easier when No. 4 Kansas State and its senior quarterback Collin Klein make the trip to Morgantown Saturday night. The Wildcats are averaging more than 40 points per game, and Klein is the main catalyst for their offensive success. “He’s an amazing athlete. That’s why he’s one of the best players in the country,” said West Virginia defensive coordinator Joe DeForest. “You see people try to defend him several different ways, and he’s still successful. We’re going to have to

have to get more hats on the ball.” Klein has racked up nearly 40 rushing touchdowns in his career at Kansas State, as well as 21 passing touchdowns. His dual-threat style allows him to make his own decisions in the offense as far as where the ball goes. And his mental game is just has impressive as his 6-foot-5, 226-pound frame. “It’s his decision making. He’s really smart,” said Mountaineer freshman linebacker Isaiah Bruce. “And his size definitely helps. It

seems like every time he gets tackled, he falls forward.” His running ability, though, is what makes him most dangerous. “He’s such a patient runner, but he’s so big and strong at the same time,” said West Virginia linebacker Doug Rigg. “He was out running people, too, and he’s a huge quarterback. He’s just a great all-around player.” The Mountaineers have faced some mobile quarterbacks in 2012, but none compare to the running

West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen was not pleased with the Mountaineers’ play in their 49-14 loss to Texas Tech Saturday. “I am not happy with how we played on all three sides of the ball. We didn’t execute very well, we didn’t coach very well and we didn’t play with very much effort,” he said. Though it is easy to cast blame on the players, Holgorsen said that the team as a whole – including the coaches – was responsible for the loss. “One thing that I tell the team all the time is that we are all in this together – coaches and players. Anything that I say in reference to a player, I am making reference to coaching as well,” he said. “We didn’t handle the situation well. You can spin it a lot of different ways if you want to, but bottom line is we didn’t get the job done.” There’s no time for West Virginia to dwell on the recent loss, as Kansas State comes to Morgantown Saturday. Ranked No. 4 in the BCS poll, the Wildcats are the only remaining undefeated team in the Big 12. One aspect of the Wildcats’ game Holgorsen said caught his attention is their balance and team discipline. “They are probably the most disciplined team I have seen in a long time on all three sides of the ball. They are extremely disciplined,” he said. “They don’t make mistakes on any side of the ball. They play with tremendous effort, and they play extremely physical football. They have a lot of experience. They are as smart of a football team as I have seen in some time.” The Wildcats are quarterbacked by senior Collin Klein, who is considered alongside Geno Smith as one of the top contenders for the Heisman Trophy. Holgorsen said he hopes to quell the running game of the 6-foot-5 Klein, who has rushed for 510 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. “Collin Klein is a tremendous football player. You watch him on tape, and you have to stop the run because between him and their running back, (junior) John Hubert, they rush for 200-some yards a game,” he said. “We will work hard on trying to stop the run, and we want to make them pass.” The Mountaineers suffered a string of injuries in the Texas Tech game, most of which Holgorsen classified as day-to-day.

Head coach Dana Holgorsen and the No. 13 West Virginia football team will host No. 4 Kansas State this weekend after losing 49-14 to No. 17 Texas Tech. Redshirt junior cornerback Brodrick Jenkins will miss Saturday’s contest with what Holgorsen called a “slight cartilage tear,” but the injury does not appear to be serious, and according to Holgorsen, “he will be back.” Holgorsen did not address the status of redshirt junior Stedman Bailey, who suffered what appeared to be an ankle sprain last week. What Holgorsen did do, though, was announce that true freshman wide receiver Tavares Copeland will start this week – the first of his career. “(Copeland) will start this week. You guys can go ahead and write that down. He has been getting better and better every week,” Holgorsen said. “We got him in the (Texas Tech) game because we didn’t like what we were looking at, so we made the decision to play him and put him in.” Holgorsen said Copeland fits in with his theme of playing any player who he believes is ready to contribute – regardless of experience. “I wish we would have forced the envelope on (Copeland) a little bit earlier. In camp, we tried, but he just didn’t pick up on it. The more he played and the more he was here, the better he has gotten, so we are going to play him,” he said. “If there are any other freshmen that step up this week, then we are going to play them. I have said it from the very beginning – I don’t care who you are, you are going to play.”

What do you like about the Daily Athenaeum? “I like seeing what is on the student’s minds.”




No. 1 Mountaineers set NCAA record in win vs. Memphis

Wednesday October 17, 2012

Defensive struggles continue for WVU

matt sunday/the daily athenaeum

Senior Petra Zublasing and the WVU rifle team scored 4,717 points, an NCAA record, in Tuesday’s win over Memphis.

by robert kreis sports writer

The West Virginia rifle team demonstrated its comfort with shooting in its home range Tuesday afternoon when itposted a new NCAA team scoring record of 4,717 and defeated conference foe Memphis. “Obviously it’s a really good result for us today,” said head coach Jon Hammond. “To shoot such a high score (in) our first home match is a really fantastic result and certainly should give us some confidence.” According to Hammond it was the total team effort that allowed the Mountaineers to be so successful. “It’s a great score and result overall, but at the same time, I think it was just a really, really strong team effort,” Hammond said. “Everybody across the board shot really steady. I am really happy, not just for the result but really the way they all shot.” Tuesday’s match against Memphis was the homeopener for the Mountaineers. After traveling their

first three matches, the score tells us the team was relieved and happy to be back in Morgantown. “You have that comfort factor (when) you’re at home,” Hammond said. “They’ve been shooting some really good performances when we’ve been on the road the last couple matches, and I think this team has a lot of talent, which is really good. I’m sure they had that comfort factor to come back and shoot in their home range.” Despite the high level of shooting from the Mountaineers, their initial reaction was to fix whatever minor errors they did make. Hammond encourages this aspiration for perfection, even if perfection is impossible in the sport. “It’s a sport where you are always striving to get better. You are competing against yourself,” Hammond said. “It’s kind of like golf; it’s hard to play a perfect round of golf. There is always something to improve on. “It’s the same as our matches, until you are shooting 600s all the time, which no one in the world



is doing, there is always something to improve.” At the elite level the Mountaineers compete, Hammond wants his team to always be going for gold. “That is part of the work ethic that I want them to have and the standard that I want them to set for themselves – to always be striving to do the best they can,” he said. “It wasn’t a day of any crazy scores individually. I think they all shot solid scores, but they all had parts they could have improved on as well.” After West Virginia opened up the 2012 season with a win at No. 5 Army, Hammond saw a glimpse of just how good the Mountaineers could be this year. With Tuesday’s record-setting performance, the Mountaineers skill level is becoming a lot more apparent. “Overall, I think the strength of this team is its depth,” Hammond said. “We’ve got so many strong shooters throughout the team, and they keep pushing each other. I think, hopefully, that’s the core for our success and we’ve got a lot of potential.”

Senior linebacker Terence Garvin, left, and sophomore linebacker Shaq Petteway celebrate after making a hit in WVU’s loss to Texas Tech.

by doug walp sports writer

Through the first five games of the 2012 season, No. 13 West Virginia somehow managed to remain undefeated, despite the fact that the Mountaineers had surrendered a staggering 175 points and nearly 2,500 yards of total offense to their opponents. They were able to get through non-conference play unscathed and then successfully weathered fantastic efforts from conference foes Baylor and Texas, who dropped 107 points on the Mountaineers in two games alone. But the plight of West Virginia’s defense finally caught up with the Mountaineers Saturday in Lubbock, as the WVU defensive unit was again shredded – this time by quarterback Seth Doege and the Red Raider’s capable offense. Doege became the third quarterback this year to surpass 400 passing yards against WVU and its beleaguered secondary,as he made it look routine for most of the afternoon. And this time, Geno Smith and the high-powered Mountaineers’ offense weren’t able to bail out their defensive unit. “I think our guys weren’t mentally tough enough to handle another shootout. I think that affected the performance,” said West Vir-


Continued from page 7 Joining McCarthy on the backline is a native of Hamden, Conn., fellow senior Mallory Smith. Smith, made the move from defensive midfielder last season to middle defender this season, on the backline. Smith has helped the Mountaineers on their way to earning six shutouts this season and even headed a goal in earlier this season. In her career, Smith has netted a total of six scores. A Mountaineer who has been connecting the backline to the forwards for the past four years is senior Bri Rodriguez. Rodriguez triumphantly battled back from a MCL tear she suffered in West Virginia’s NCAA tournament loss to


Continued from page 7 abilities of Klein. “They create such a different challenge than last week. It’s totally opposite,” DeForest said. “So we have to switch gears this week and prepare differently.” However, having faced mostly pass-oriented offenses against teams such as Marshall, Baylor and Texas Tech early in the season, most members of the West Virginia defense

ginia head coach Dana Holgorsen in a Monday conference call. First-year WVU co-defensive coordinator Joe DeForest was equally disappointed in the performance from his defense and candidly told the media his unit needs a lot of adjustments if they want to make a run at a Big 12 championship in their inaugural season in the conference. “We’re not ready for primetime yet; I can tell you that,” DeForest said. “We had guys in position to make plays but didn’t tackle well in space. We’ve got a long way to go in order to get back to playing good enough defense to winning this league.” Most of West Virginia’s defensive personnel were similarly dejected. “It was definitely frustrating as a defense,” said starting linebacker Isaiah Bruce. “We pride ourselves on getting off the field on third down. They were connecting on too many big plays. They were just capitalizing on key situations. We definitely feel like we need to step up our game. We didn’t play hard enough.” Some parties have attributed WVU’s defensive struggles to the fact that the Mountaineers are in the first year of implementing a completely new defensive scheme, the 3-4, after last season’s defensive coordi-

nator Jeff Casteel took his 3-3-5 scheme to join Rich Rodriguez in Tempe, Ariz. But Holgorsen said Monday that he’s happy from a scheme standpoint on defense. “It’s not the scheme; it’s the way that we’re playing,” Holgorsen said. “We didn’t play with a sense of urgency. Our effort was spotty; we were way too hesitant. And then, when the situation got the best of us, we lost technique and we lost confidence.” DeForest, like Holgorsen, said he was completely confident in the team’s plan and preparation coming into the game but the Red Raiders simply put forth more effort and emotion and consistently out-executed the Mountaineers. But DeForest also noted for the first time this season, injuries played a factor in who the Mountaineers were able to put out on the field against Texas Tech Saturday. The result was that the Mountaineers were more or less forced to use inexperienced personnel at nearly every single position. “We had freshman at dline, linebacker, corner and at safety,” DeForest said. “But that’s what we had, so we’ve got to stop people with freshmen. That’s our job.”

Virginia Tech last season. Rodriguez plays a vital role in distributing the ball and coordinating the Mountaineer attack. Throughout her career at West Virginia, Rodriguez has scored 12 goals while having a foot in many more, totaling 18 assists. During the 2011 season, Rodriguez proved she was someone the Mountaineers could depend on in the clutch, as she scored two game-winning goals, and assisted another game-winner. The final senior honored last Friday is forward Nicolette DeLaurentis. DeLaurentis, who hails from Sicklerville, N.J., has amassed nine shots, while seeing action in 29 games throughout her career. Before becoming a Dean’s List student at West Virginia, DeLauren-

tis led Gloucester Catholic High School to two state championships as captain in 2005 and 2007. Each senior class has a special place in IzzoBrown’s heart. This group of seniors will finish among some of the most highly decorated classes in school history, but for Izzo-Brown, it is beyond the playing field that makes their relationship so special. “They made it to three straight NCAA tournaments, won back-to-back Big East championships, and to me it’s not just about the championships,” IzzoBrown said. “It’s just about the relationships I have with them, and I am very fortunate. There is a special place for all of them because they are great people.”

look forward to the change of pace. “It’s a lot of old-school football with the powers and isos, and we really haven’t played that yet this year,” Rigg said. A between-the-tacklesbased scheme is something the Mountaineers faced frequently in the Big East Conference, but they haven’t seen much of since their transition to the modernstyle offenses in the Big 12. However, the powerrun game presented by the Wildcats creates a pleasant

problem for WVU. “That’s what I’m built for. I’m excited for this game,” Rigg said. “I’m built well for that, and hopefully I’ll play well this weekend.” Although Bruce didn’t experience Big East Conference play, he has played power football before. “I love in-between-thetackles (football),” Bruce said. “We get to be involved a little bit more, which helps me contribute more.”
