Student wins design competition BY GAVIN MATELA STAFF WRITER
FOR MORE INFORMATION
Two West Virginia University students won a national contest by renewing, reusing and redesigning “an environmentally sound space to live, work and play,” for artists and businesses in Asheville, N.C. Kyle Stauffer, a senior landscape architecture major in the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources & Design, won the “ReCycle this Site” design contest. Nina Chase, also a senior landscape architecture major, was recognized as runner-up. The contest, sponsored by the Land-of-Sky Regional Council and the Environmental Protection Agency asked students from WVU, Virginia Tech, University of Ari-
zona, Clemson University, North Carolina State and the Savannah College of Art and Design to design a livable space for artists and businesses in Asheville, N.C. “It’s amazing that we had three finalists and the top two projects overall. That says something about the quality of the education that I am receiving here,” Stauffer said. Stauffer received a $2,500 scholarship for winning the contest and will have the movie he submitted

featured in a documentary. He was also asked to speak at a conference about brownfields, or polluted and abandoned industrial lands, in Philadelphia next year. “This award helps me most by giving me a confidence booster. The knowledge that I can compete and win on a national level means a lot to me,” he said. Even though Chase did not place, she said she enjoyed the experience and is pleased with her work. “Knowing that WVU landscape architecture students can compete, and competitively compete, with other top design students can only strengthen our reputation as an already prominent landscape architecture program,” Chase said. The Davis College was ranked
10th worldwide by DesignIntelligence for their Bachelor of Landscape Architecture Degree in 2010. “It reflects on the quality of the student work coming out of our program. Named as a Top 10 program this year and performing well in a national competition brings more notoriety to our program, the Davis College and WVU,” said Peter Butler, professor of resource management and one of the students’ sponsors for the program. Of the more than 200 students who participated, Stauffer, Chase and Calin Owens, also a senior in the Davis College, were chosen as three of the six finalists for the award.

The 40th anniversary of Earth Day gave West Virginia University students and Morgantown residents a chance to see a show, catch free bus rides and learn about “green” practices. The WVU Office of Sustainability, along with WELL WVU and the WVU Young Democrats, sponsored the “Green Show on the Green,” a concert and sustainability fair. Several booths were set up in the Mountainlair to promote sustainability at WVU. Mountain Line Transit Authority offered coupons for free bus rides as part of Earth Day festivities, while free T-shirts made of 100 percent recycled material and
reusable water bottles were also given away. “I think the first part is education and awareness. For someone to act, they need to be aware of what the issue is,” said Clement Solomon, director of Sustainability at WVU. “Every day should be an Earth Day, and this event is highlighting that issue.” The event, Solomon said, was primarily student run, and free Mountain Line bus ride coupons promoted the use of public transportation to reduce carbon emissions. Maria Smith, marketing officer at the Mountain Line Transit Authority, said they are trying to put the word out to empower people. “For every change that every person makes, it makes a big
change at the end of the day. Public transportation is one way that people can help the Earth,” Smith said. Using public transportation saves 900,000 automobile fill-ups each day, 4.2 billion gallons of gasoline a year and reduces individual carbon emissions by 48,000 pounds per year, according to a Mountain Line press release. Bus rides usually cost 75 cents per ride. Mountain Line bus service is free to WVU students with a WVU I.D. The Office of Sustainability has been working with other organizations and the community to sponsor Earth Month during April. Earlier in the month the Office of Sustainability sponsored a water and eco artist lecture by Basia
Irland at the Creative Arts Center, Amizade’s Water Walk for Women’s Rights, Impact E.A.R.T.H. (Environmental Awareness and Respecting Tomorrow’s Home), the Earth Day 5K race and the Sierra Swing Show at 123 Pleasant Street. Upcoming events include a free paper-shredding day at the Communications Building on Patteson Drive from 9 a.m. to noon today for students’ personal documents. Electronic recycling will also be available on Maiden Lane for all types of electronic devices from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. “We want everyone to feel part of it, and wherever we can assist and help, we are glad to do that,” Solomon said. email@example.com
WVU to offer workplace safety class this summer BY SAMANTHA COSSICK STAFF WRITER
West Virginia University Safety & Health Extension is offering its Occupational Safety and Health Administration record-keeping seminar class this summer. The four-hour class teaches various methods for keeping track of work related injuries and illnesses, said Bob Moore, extension specialist and safety and extension clinical instructor. “It’s a very precise way for employees to keep track of any work-related injuries and fatalities that meet the requirements for recording,” Moore said.
FOR MORE INFORMATION To register for the class, please call 304-293-3096 or visit http://safetyandhealth.ext.wvu.edu/. OSHA rules do not require every accident be recorded but only certain ones which the class will teach, Moore said. He said procedures for recording accidents depend on the situation and the profession. The seminar class is targeted at people responsible for identifying OSHA requirements and those who complete OSHA forms 300, 300A and 301, said Missy Stewart, project coordinator for Safety & Health Exten-
sion, in an e-mail. OSHA record keeping typically affects jobs such as construction, manufacturing, utility plants, some public sectors, school systems and higher education, Moore said. Keeping better records allows employees to spot trouble areas and patterns of accidents, allowing them to treat the problem, Moore said. OSHA rules are taught in all Safety & Health Extension classes, but this is the only course that focuses on the rules, he said. The department is hoping to offer the class more often, he said.
“We’re going to be doing it a lot more often, because now it is an OSHA national emphasis,” Moore said. “(Participants) think it’s very useful, and they think it should be longer.” The class will also teach members about the OSHA confidentiality policy and the liability issues of not filing a reportable injury, Moore said. The deadline to register for the OSHA 7845 record keeping rule seminar is April 27. Tuition costs $150 per person. Pre-registration is required because seating is limited, Stewart said. firstname.lastname@example.org

The West Virginia University Sierra Student Coalition is petitioning for University support of the new President’s Climate Commitment Campaign this week. Universities will pledge to be leaders for emission reduction, clean energy, efficiency and sustainability as part of the campaign. The SSC, an environmental group on campus, hopes WVU will join. Miranda Miller, a freshman social work major and member of the SSC, said it’s part of a nationally run campaign that more than 600 universities have already signed on to. “It’s basically stipulating that the president of the University will sign the commitment to create a plan and oversee a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on campus and make sustainability a priority on their campus,” Miller said. The Coalition currently has about 200 signatures and hopes to get 500 signatures by the end of the semester. “Right now we our collecting petitions to show President (James P.) Clements that there is a lot of support for such an initia-

The overall goal of the organization is to get Clements’ signature to show WVU’s commitment and participation in the campaign, said Maria Panaccione, a freshman international studies and geography major and SSC member. The SSC began working on the campaign this past Monday by collecting signatures inside and around the Mountainlair, Panaccione said. “We’ve also been doing a photo petition. We have a speech bubble, which people hold up that says, ‘Hey, President Clements, sign the PCC and make WVU carbon neutral.’” SSC members are planning to walk around the Mountainlair with the photo petitions again, Panaccione said. “It’s a cool campaign because it’s very adaptable to your campus,” Miller said. “Our hope for it is to involve the new Office of Sustainability here at WVU and involve student organizations that are invested in

Group to honor miners for service with awards, ceremony BY ANN COMPTON STAFF WRITER
A West Virginia group is honoring coal miners for their contributions to the coal industry and their service to the community with an awards ceremony. The Mine Safety Technology Consortium from Montgomery, W.Va., is accepting nominations for the second annual Miners’ Celebration held June 17. The celebration will honor nominees who live in the state and have exhibited heroism, community service and innovation, said Timothy Luce, president and CEO of Presidio Studios. Luce manages an advertising agency responsible for promoting the event. “We wanted to recognize miners as humans and for their contributions to the community,” Luce said. He explained the grioy already had an idea of what kind of theme they wanted for this year’s ceremony. “Miners aren’t just a source of income, people exist to the benefit off the mines,” he said. “Miners support their local communities, their neighbors, outside of just serving in the mine industry.” This year’s celebration will be held at the Glade Springs Resort

in Daniels, W.Va., and feature discussions on mining innovations in the 21st Century, according to the website established by the MSTC. Dennis Jarvis II, MSTC director, said the idea for the celebration was proposed last year at the first MSTC conference in Beckley, W.Va. Coal industries give out awards within their own companies, but there were no awards for general miners, Jarvis said. “West Virginian coal miners are the hardest working and most dedicated professionals that this state has. We couldn’t think of a better profession to honor,” he said. The MSTC has already received more than 20 nominations, and they hope to receive more before the celebration, he said. The celebration will be named after the 29 miners who perished at the Upper Big Branch Mine explosion in Montcoal, W.Va., he said. It is undetermined the number of awards that would be given out during the celebration, Jarvis said. “We’re going to honor all those worthy of recognition.” email@example.com

Massey seeks to reassure investors over explosion CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Massey Energy officials are trying to reassure investors that the company can recover from an explosion that killed 29 people at one of its most valuable coal mines. A growing number of investors are questioning Chief Executive Don Blankenship’s role. Lawsuits filed on behalf of victims and shareholders are increasing. Government regulators continue to criticize the company’s safety record. And the company says second-quarter losses could range from $80 million to $150 million. On Thursday, Blankenship sought to reassure Wall Street. “The explosion was not caused by willful disregard for safety regulations as the media would have you believe,” Blankenship said during a conference call with analysts. “Some of the implications have been that we don’t focus on safety and we don’t put dollars on safety. Nothing could be further from the truth.” Massey’s board of directors, meanwhile, issued a statement saying Blankenship has its full

problem coal mines singled out for a national MSHA inspection blitz last weekend. The agency has not released information about how many violations were found during the blitz. Blankenship described the action as routine. “A blitz is where they show up with a team of inspectors, might be 10 or 12, and they might spread out on shifts and those inspectors might be from other districts in order to get a fresh look,” he said. Upper Big Branch is among Massey’s most valuable operations and Massey is scrambling to replace 1.6 million tons of lost 2010 production. Massey plans to replace 1.3 million tons by adding shifts at other mines and opening three new underground mining sections. Roughly 30 percent of the replacement coal is the same quality, said Mark Clemens, a senior vice president. “We have talked to many of our customers and they have agreed to change,” Clemens said. “We don’t see it being that big of a difference.”
In suit against pope, Vatican details Wisconsin boys’ abuse MILWAUKEE (AP) — The case of a Wisconsin priest accused of preying on boys at a school for the deaf was presented to the Vatican by one of the victims a year earlier than previously thought, according to documents revealed Thursday in another lawsuit aimed at the highest levels of the Roman Catholic Church. A man identified in the lawsuit as “John Doe 16” of Illinois wrote a March 5, 1995, letter to then-Vatican Secretary of State Angelo Sodano alleging that the Rev. Lawrence Murphy molested him for a number of years. Previously, it was believed that the Vatican

support. “During times like these, a change in senior management is not appropriate or in the best interest of our members and shareholders,” lead independent director Bobby Inman said. “Therefore, we want to emphasize that Don Blankenship has the full support and confidence of the Massey Energy Board of Directors.” Massey’s shares fell $1.06 or 2.42 percent, to $42.73 in afternoon trading Thursday. They are down more than 22 percent from their close of $54.69 on April 5, the day of the mine blast. The federal Mine Safety and Health Administration has questioned Massey’s safety record. The rate of serious violations that required evacuations and immediate repairs at Upper Big Branch was 19 times the national rate, the agency said this week. MSHA is tentatively blaming a preventable buildup of explosive methane gas and coal dust for the fatal blast. Massey operations accounted for more than 14 percent of 57
first learned of the allegations against Murphy in a July 1996 letter from Milwaukee Archbishop Rembert Weakland. Murphy, who died in 1998, is accused of sexually abusing some 200 boys at the school from 1950 to 1974. His case drew renewed scrutiny after the recent release of documents suggesting that a Vatican office led by then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger – now the pope – failed to aggressively discipline Murphy. Doe 16’s letter was released by his attorney, Jeff Anderson of St. Paul, Minn., who provided a copy of a receipt showing the registered letter had reached
the Vatican. The man wrote Sodano again and got no response, according to Anderson. The Vatican dismissed the lawsuit as a publicity stunt that is entirely without merit and rehashes theories already rejected by U.S. courts. Jeffrey Lena, a U.S. attorney for the Vatican, said in a statement that Murphy’s victims deserve sympathy, but the Vatican knew nothing of the crimes until decades later and isn’t responsible for the abuse. Lena said the lawsuit “is simply the latest attempt by certain U.S. lawyers to use the judicial process as a tool of media relations.”

WVU should follow others’ tuition freezes West Virginia University should follow the path established by Marshall University and implement a tuition freeze for the 2010-11 academic year. West Virginia undergraduate students attending the university in Huntington and “most resident graduate students” will not see increases in tuition next year. The move comes after Gov. Joe Manchin asked higher education institutions to consider freezing tuition to keep college affordable in light of the economic downturn.
“Learning additional skills beyond high school is more critical than ever for West Virginians,” Manchin said in his January address. “That is why I am asking all of our technical and four-year colleges and universities to freeze their tuition rates for the coming school year.” Marshall now joins WVUParkersburg in freezing tuition. The college’s Board of Governors also voted to answer Manchin’s call earlier this month. Our University, however, has yet to announce whether or
not the school can oblige the governor. A week after Manchin’s address, Carolyn Long, chair of the WVU Board of Governors, said the request was being taken “very seriously.” Such a decision isn’t to be made irrationally or without good reason, and the board is currently looking into it. “As a board, we are charged with being fiscally sound,” Long said. “Whether we like it or not, we have to look at the numbers.” The move to freeze tuition will
be welcome for those West Virginia families who, like much of the nation, are feeling the effects of the worst recession since the Great Depression. Though tuition increases have been frozen at Marshall and WVU-Parkersburg, money is being recouped elsewhere. In the same session that the BOG voted to freeze tuition, the board also voted to increase rates for out-of-state students, “metro students” and medical students. WVU-Parkersburg students will now face more program-
specific fees and a $20 parking fee. Such fees are far less than the hundreds of dollars that typically form yearly tuition increases. Higher Education Policy Commission Chancellor Brian Noland said in an e-mail to The Daily Athenaeum earlier this year that he believes the state’s colleges and universities will be able to honor Manchin’s request “while still maintaining or increasing the level of service provided to current and prospective students through the use of supplemental federal stimulus
funds, responsible fiscal management and the examination of increased efficiencies.” We hope WVU administrators will soon announce their intentions to keep tuition rates where they are. West Virginia’s future will be shaped by the decisions we make now. Increasing tuition at a time when many families are struggling to send their children to college will not help our state but hinder it. firstname.lastname@example.org
Is open homosexuality incompatible with military service? C.G. SHIELDS
For the entire history of the armed services of the United States, the presumed answer to that question has been yes. Prior to 1993, applications for military service inquired as to whether the applicant had ever engaged or ever intended to engage in same-sex activity. An answer in the affirmative meant the application was tossed. Courting the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender vote in the 1992 election cycle, candidate Bill Clinton promised to end this practice. Gay and lesbian Americans who wanted to put their lives on the line in service to the country ought to be able to do it, Clinton said. It was an easy enough thing to say before the election, but suddenly and violently more difficult to implement after the in-
auguration. Clinton faced the opposition of apparently the entire military establishment, the leaders of which entrenched and readied for a fight – something they were far better prepared for than the silky-voiced boy from Hope, Ark. Former Sen. Sam Nunn, a Georgia Democrat and thenchair of the Armed Services Committee, railed against Clinton’s proposal. In Senate hearings, every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was asked the question with which I opened this column. They all said yes: Open homosexuality is incompatible with military service. One particular member of the Joint Chiefs spoke especially strongly against lifting the ban. His name was Colin Powell, and he was their boss. The misnamed, misled and misunderstood compromise we know as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was the result. But these things do change.
At a conference in 2008, Nunn and Powell publicly agreed that it was time to review the policy; Nunn, in fact, seemed resigned that the policy would be repealed and wanted hearings, hearings and more hearings to see that it was done slowly. It’s an absurd argument on its face – we’ll let the gays in, sure, but not right now, only years from now when we’re all dead – but I suppose it’s a step forward. But Powell has now taken an even stronger stance. Earlier this year, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen spoke before the first Congressional hearings on DADT since 1993. Gates and Mullen openly advocated rolling back the ban. Powell’s office then issued a statement: “In the almost 17 years since the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ legislation was passed, attitudes and circumstances have changed,” he said. “I fully support the new
approach presented to the Senate Armed Services Committee this week by ... Gates and Adm. Mullen.” Attitudes and circumstances have changed, indeed. Nearly all of America’s NATO allies have eliminated restrictions on the open military service of gays and lesbians, including all the countries whose troops are fighting alongside Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Israeli Defense Force, a highly effective and universally feared or respected institution, has allowed gay Israeli citizens to serve openly for years. Not one of these militaries has yet capitulated to an invading barbarian horde. Yes, attitudes and circumstances have changed – but empirically, we knew the truth 17 years ago. Dr. Gregory M. Herek, testifying before the Nunn committee in 1993 on behalf of six different psychiatric and social work pro-
fessional organization said: “The research data show that there is nothing about lesbians and gay men that makes them inherently unfit for military service, and there is nothing about heterosexuals that makes them inherently unable to work and live with gay people in close quarters.” We also knew back then that this would cost money, and it has: $363 million, to be precise, from 1994 to 2003, according to a University of California study. Imagine how that number has grown in the seven years since. Even Sen. Barry Goldwater, a conservative legend and the man behind the 1986 Goldwater-Nichols reform, which established the combatant command system used by the U.S. armed forces today, knew the truth. “You don’t have to be straight to shoot straight,” he famously observed. So let’s have a reality check. This law is going to be repealed at some point. The ban on gays
and lesbians serving openly will end. It is a question of how and when. The opposition, like Nunn two years ago, wants studies. Studies, studies and more studies on the nuts and bolts of implementation, they say. But this is a stalling tactic – anti-gay conservatives hope to retake Congress in the fall midterms and then keep DADT in place for another two years, another four years. Don’t let them do it. We must demand that the Senate Armed Services eliminate this absurd and childish law when it votes next month on the annual Defense Authorization Act. As it happens, West Virginia’s own Sen. Robert C. Byrd is an influential member of the committee, and he needs to hear from all of us. Write him letters, send him emails, and call his office. Demand that he do his part to end DADT swiftly. We have already waited far too long.

Drivers and pedestrians should take responsibility Having been a student and driver in and around West Virginia University, this incident is not the first and most certainly will not be the last as long as pedestrians and motorists alike continue being distracted by phones, iPods, etc. At crosswalks, pedestrians have the right of way. But stop and think for a moment. Which is easier to stop: about 200 pounds of flesh moving 3
mph to 5 mph or more than 5,000 pounds of steel moving at about 20 mph? At the Towers PRT crosswalk, pedestrians are notorious for not even looking to see if any traffic is coming and with whatever electronic device is distracting them, I don’t even think most are aware they are at the crosswalk. I’m sure everyone was taught to “look both ways before crossing the street.” Just because a sign may say yield doesn’t mean it will be adhered to. Drivers need to be more attentive and also look at what surrounds the road and not just the road itself; but pedestrians also
need to stop and look before walking across the street. This is coming from experience. If you, as a pedestrian, are standing at a crosswalk such as the one at the Towers PRT, 90 percent of the time a driver will stop and wait for you to cross. Pedestrians, turn off the iPod, put down the cell phone and pay attention to where you are walking. You are college students, not 5 year olds. Act like it, because in the game of person vs. vehicle, the vehicle is always going to win. Dustin Whitt Morgantown resident
How to spin our party school reputation to prospective employers ZACH VIGLIANCO
Playboy Magazine revealed its list of Top Party Schools for 2010 April 16. In case you’ve spent the last few days recovering from a killer hangover (what, too soon?), you’re probably aware that West Virginia University was ranked second on that list. Many are probably wondering why the ranking has garnered so much attention. Isn’t the ranking just an arbitrary assessment by a magazine primarily known for featuring photos of nude women, which is based in large part on a popular (but unsubstantiated) perception that WVU students spend about 26 hours per day drunk? The answer to that question, of course, is no. In fact, the Playboy rankings are actually a critical compo-
nent of the single-most important tool employers use to evaluate the relative value of your degree, the Party-school Career Screen. Combined with the Princeton Review’s party school rankings and a number of other meaningless, made-up statistics, the PCS helps companies determine just how unemployable a college or university’s graduates are. My inside sources have assured me that graduating from a school with a high PCS ranking basically guarantees you won’t get a job. Fortunately for those of you nearing graduation, those same sources have informed me that since the PCS ratings fluctuate significantly from year to year (WVU was No. 10 on Playboy’s list last year), some companies will give you the benefit of the doubt and possibly ask for an interview. In these situations, all your other awards, honors and achievements are thrown out
the window – everything is riding on how well you manage to deflect and overcome the tremendous stigma associated with a high PCS rating. It’s a long shot, but don’t worry, because I’m about to arm you with a set of proven strategies that (60 percent of the time) work every the time.

WVU needs more offensive playmakers
West Virginia head football coach Bill Stewart said before spring practice his team’s two top recruits of 2010 were the returns of elusive tailback Noel Devine and swift slot receiver Jock Sanders for their senior seasons. That’s not exactly a bold statement. After all, the dynamic duo was the Mountaineers’ two most productive offensive players a season ago. Devine finished with 1,465 rushing yards and an astounding 6.1 yards per carry, along with 13 touchdowns. Sanders hauled in 688 receiving yards and rushed for another 175 and scored four touchdowns. That led to a buzz about both foregoing their remaining year of eligibility to opt for the NFL Draft. Now that Devine and Sanders are still donning the Old Gold and Blue, Stewart will begin the season with a pair of the Big East Conference’s most reliable offensive threats. Pittsburgh receiver Jonathan Baldwin and running back Dion Lewis make up the only other pair that can merit consideration as the league’s top running back/receiver duo. Outside of Devine and Sanders, the Mountaineers need someone to help shoulder the load and take pressure off the undersized Florida natives. Judging off the first 10 practices of spring, slot receiver Tavon Austin appears to be a logical candidate. Austin made his presence felt as a true freshman in 2009, combining for 198 receiving and rushing yards on just 21 touches. He also averaged 25.1 yards on 17 kickoff returns and scored three touchdowns. But Austin, like the duo that refers to themselves as “Batman and Superman,” is small in stature. There is also the issue of what position Austin should play. Throughout spring, he has been used as a wide receiver, although he was a heralded tailback coming out of Baltimore’s Dunbar High School where he won Maryland State Player of the Year twice. With Devine doing the bulk of the damage in the backfield, it’s no easy task for the Mountaineer coaching staff to get Austin carries. Instead, it elected to put Austin where it thinks he can make more

Perhaps the most unique aspect of the West Virginia football team’s defense is that it features three safeties on most plays. In defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel’s uncommon 3-3-5 stack, the safeties have an abundance of responsibility. The trio is heavily relied upon to cover plenty of ground – whether it’s defending passes or getting closer to the line to aid the defense on running plays. There’s an optimistic outlook over what the Mountaineers’ backline of defense is capable of this year. “I am so excited about our safeties. I see Robert Sands and Sidney Glover doing a really good job,” said West Virginia head coach Bill Stewart. “This is the best our safeties have looked since the (2008) Ryan Mundy, Eric Wicks days.” With spring practice concluding one week from today, Stewart likes the progress he’s seen from Sands, Glover and fellow projected starter Terence Garvin. Sands is a returning firstteam all-Big East Conference member who led the conference with five interceptions and 13 passes defended last season. The 6-foot-5 soon-to-be junior has a major advantage being able to see the entire field with his height, but his ball-hawking skills enabled him to take the next step. Sands finished fifth on the team in 2009 with 65 tackles, including third in unassisted tackles with 38. Even after coming off a prestigious season, Sands knows he can get better. “I’m looking to come out of my breaks faster, running with the ball after interceptions and just improving myself,” he said. His five interceptions were returned for a total of only nine yards. Glover has played in 35 career games with the Mountaineers and enters his senior campaign as West Virginia’s most experienced defensive back. He also has a knack for the ball with 139 career tackles, including 61 and 60 in his last two seasons, respectively. One aspect Glover and the safeties have shown
improvement on is concealing their coverage so opposing offenses aren’t sure whether or not West Virginia is geared to stop the run or pass in a particular package. “We’re better at disguising,” Stewart said. “We’ve got a long way to go, but we’re gaining and getting better.” Glover has battled numerous injuries throughout his collegiate career but appears healthy as he makes the transition from spur safety to bandit safety. Garvin is penciled in as the team’s starting spur safety, and it could stay that way.
As a true freshman, Garvin played 62 snaps and was able to get his feet wet in Division I football. This year, much more is expected from the Baltimore native, who is making the most out of his first time through spring practice. “I really like Terence Garvin,” Stewart said. “He’s had a really good spring. We needed for him to step up to the plate, and he really did.” Eain Smith provides depth at safety, having played in all 26 games over the last two seasons.

HOROSCOPES BY JACQUELINE BIGAR BORN TODAY This year, you have many opportunities. You could opt for a home-based business or go into a profession that you really love. A mentor often inspires you. Enormous resourcefulness makes the world your oyster. Be sure of your goals. If you are single, a compulsive attraction could be all you see. If you are attached, with a little nurturing, the romantic ﬂames could start blazing again. VIRGO reveals a different side. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) ★★★★ Focus on coming up with viable answers during a brainstorming session. You gain insight into a friend out of the blue. In the p.m., think “Friday.” Someone could keep calling or dropping in, interfering with your thought process. Tonight: Wander home, maybe visit with a friend. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) ★★★ Pressure builds on the home front. Not until you say “enough” – at least to yourself – will you complete your work. A friend could be quirky and change plans back and forth. A boss appreciates your eﬀorts. Tonight: Playtime!
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) ★★★★ In the morning, ask for what you want clearly and directly. Hedging simply isn’t going to cut it. In the afternoon, even if it is Friday, you want to pull back and do some thinking. If you’re at work, you might be grasping the enormity of a project. Tonight: Happiest at home. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 2) ★★★ Curb overindulgence. Take a deep breath and identify what you want. Communication will excel if you are able to identify with others. Allow someone who needs control to have it, for everyone’s sake. Tonight: Hang with friends. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) ★★★★ You are on cruise control. Someone isn’t seeing a situation the same way as you do. Could this diﬀerence be a problem? In the afternoon, dig into work. Tonight: Your treat. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) ★★★★ Though you might be out of kilter with the world in the a.m., by the afternoon, you feel empowered. Don’t allow an associate or co-worker to distort your idea. You might need to simplify your language. Con-
ﬁrm that everyone is on the same page. Tonight: Do what you think is best to start the weekend. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) ★★★ Dedicate the morning to a key issue. Your ability to zero in on what you want allows for more success. In the afternoon, you need some quiet time to center and make decisions. Tonight: Let your mind wander, even if you don’t feel like following! SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) ★★★★ Accept your role in a project, as you cannot change it. Understand that others push you into the role of being the front person. A meeting could be more important than you realize; whether it’s in your personal or professional life is yet to be determined. Tonight: Where your friends are. S A G I T TA R I U S ( N O V. 22-DEC. 21) ★★★★★ Gain understanding as to why a boss or older relative feels so strongly. What is clear is that you will be carrying that sword for them, like it or not. You might be surprised by what happens in that case. Tonight: A must appearance.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) ★★★★ A partner lets you know exactly what he or she thinks. Finances could be involved in a semi-reluctance to follow through. Distance yourself from this matter, for today. In time, you will ﬁnd a suitable arrangement. Tonight: Turn into a party animal. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) ★★★ Others might not be responding as quickly as you would like. The real bottom line is that they have many other matters on their mind. A conversation later in the day reminds someone exactly what you expect and where you are coming from. Tonight: Why not add some romance to your life? PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) ★★★★ Get an early start on paperwork or any matters that demand your complete attention. Others will meander in this afternoon, wanting your time and attention. You will want to network. Free up as much time as possible. Tonight: In the social whirl of life. BORN TODAY Filmmaker Michael Moore (1954), wrestler John Cena (1977), comedian George Lopez (1961)

Track travels to St. Francis for final meet Talbot helps Indians West Virginia hopes to qualify more athletes for Big East Championships BY BRAD JOYAL SPORTS WRITER
The West Virginia track and field team will try to take advantage of its final opportunity to send athletes to compete in the Big East Championships Saturday when it competes in the Father Bede Hines Invitational at St. Francis University. The meet will consist of host school St. Francis, along with Robert Morris, Duquesne, Juniata, Penn State-Behrend and St. Vincent. “The meet at St. Francis is another great opportunity for our team,” Cleary said. “Honestly, we have provided this opportunity for the girls that we feel still have a good shot at making the Big East mark and for various
Yankees turn triple play in loss to A’s OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Alex Rodriguez started an around-thehorn gem for the New York Yankees’ first triple play in 42 years. But it was his casual jog directly across the diamond that started all the trouble. On a day of history and histrionics, Oakland pitcher Dallas Braden screamed at Rodriguez after accusing him of breaching one of baseball’s unwritten rules, setting off a shouting match Thursday in the Athletics’ 4-2 win over the Yankees. The problems began in the top of the sixth inning after a single by Rodriguez. Robinson Cano fouled off a pitch and Rodriguez, who in between second base and third, cut across the pitcher’s mound to return to first. After Cano grounded into an inning-ending double play, Braden and Rodriguez got into it. “The long and short of it is it’s pretty much baseball etiquette. He should probably take a note from his captain over there,” Braden said, referring to Yankees leader Derek Jeter, “because you don’t run across the pitcher’s mound in between an inning or during the game. I was just dumbfounded that he would let that slip his mind.” “I was just trying to convey to him that I was still out there, that ball’s in my hand and that’s my pitcher’s mound. If he wants to run across the pitcher’s mound. Tell him to go do laps in the bullpen,” he said. Braden yelled over his right shoulder as he stepped across the third-base line and Rodriguez hollered back. The two kept screaming at each other until A’s manager Bob Geren came out and walked Braden off the field. Braden threw his glove against a wall in the Oakland dugout and kicked a stack of cups. “He just told me to get off his mound,” Rodriguez said. “I was a little surprised. I’ve never quite heard that, especially from a guy that has a handful of wins in his career. I’ve never even heard of that in my career and I still don’t know. I thought it was pretty funny, actually.” The 26-year-old Braden (3-0), with a 17-21 lifetime record, was hardly laughing after helping end the Yankees’ six-game winning streak. “I’m not really a speck on that guy’s radar but he’ll know after today that it might not be a good idea to run across the mound when I’m out there,” Braden said. “It’s not like I throw 95 (mph) and I’m going to hurt him. He’ll know I was there, though.” Asked if Rodriguez said he was sorry, Braden said no. “The guy was tasting himself too long to apologize,” he said. “No, he didn’t apologize. And it’s a shame. I have a lot of respect for that guy, everything he’s done in the game. It’s just disappointing when you see the other side of things.” This was not the first time someone said Rodriguez had broken an unwritten rule on the diamond. In 2007, he shouted at Toronto third baseman Howie Clark while rounding the bag on a popup. Clark backed away, and the ball dropped. The play started a baseball debate about A-Rod’s actions. Moments after the temper tantrum with Braden, Rodriguez turned a triple play. The A’s quickly put runners on first and second in the bottom of the sixth and Kurt Suzuki – who earlier hit a three-run homer – sent a sharp grounder to Rodriguez at third base.
reasons, have not done so yet.” Both St. Francis and Robert Morris compete in the Northeast Conference, so the meet itself will offer a smaller setting with less talent than the Mountaineers are normally accustomed to. Cleary recognizes what the meet has to offer for the team in its last weekend of regular season competition. “The meet is being used as a light tuneup for some of the girls before heading into the championship portion of the season or for others to rest,” Cleary said. The Mountaineers have been aiming to meet qualifying marks all season long, but this weekend is the last opportunity to do so. Two freshmen throw-
ers, Heather Adams and Brittany Thomas, will try to meet the qualifying mark in the discus Saturday. The duo has been trying to meet the qualifying standard of 40.0 meters in the discus throw all season long. Last weekend, Adams and Thomas tied for fifth place in the discus at the James Madison Invitational after throwing 37.13 meters, only 2.87 meters shy of the conference qualifying mark. Cleary noted the success of the throwers when mentioning who he expects to meet qualifying marks Saturday. “I feel our best chances of getting qualifiers will come from the discus, pole vault and the 400-meter,” Cleary said. “I am
pleased with the groups spirits as we get closer to the Big East Championships. “We still have a season that lasts eight weeks. So energy management is key.” The pair has been floating around the 40 meter mark for most of the season. Adams recently reached 39.49 meters at the Robert Morris Bennie Benson Invitational April 10. “The competition will be perfect,” Cleary said. “It is a lowkey affair. The group needs to just go in and get it done.” West Virginia wiill compete at the Big East Championships April 30th through May 2nd in Cincinnati, Ohio. firstname.lastname@example.org

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Mitch Talbot turned in another strong start for Cleveland, and the Indians finally got some hits in an 8-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins Thursday. Talbot (2-1) followed his first major league win, a complete game last weekend against the Chicago White Sox, with six impressive innings. He held the Twins to two hits and no earned runs to keep them from sweeping the threegame series. The Indians, who were last in the league in batting average and slugging percentage entering this game, matched their season high with eight runs. The right-handed Talbot walked three, struck out three
and watched Andy Marte give him a healthy lead with a tworun homer in the fourth inning. Marte also hit a sinking RBI single to center in the sixth. This was the worst of four starts this season for Scott Baker (2-2), who surrendered back-toback ground-rule doubles – one down each line – to Asdrubal Cabrera and Grady Sizemore to start the game. Baker was tagged with six runs before his day was done. Cleveland led 3-1 in the sixth, when Baker gave up five straight one-out hits and was taken out of the game. He threw 92 pitches, 69 of them strikes – some of them big, fat strikes the Indians used to jump-start their lagging offense.

Baseball welcomes Pitt for series BY MICHAEL CARVELLI SPORTS WRITER
The West Virginia baseball team will have its work cut out when it welcomes No. 24 Pittsburgh to Morgantown for a three-game series that begins today. First pitch for Friday’s game is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Hawley Field. It will be the second “Dollar Night” of the season. All tickets and select concessions will be available for $1 each. In Wednesday’s 23-6 win against Duquesne, the Mountaineers (17-20, 3-9 Big East Conference) set their season high in runs and had 23 base hits, while hitting four home runs. “We don’t put a lot of stock in stuff we did in one game helping us in the next one,” said West Virginia head coach Greg Van Zant. “If we can just go out there, swing the bats and keep getting better, we should be fine this weekend.” Pittsburgh also picked up a win Wednesday, beating Youngstown State 21-12.The win improved the Panthers’ record to 27-10. The dangerous Pittsburgh offense is coming into the series hitting a staggering .363 as a team and it has outscored opponents 354-233 this year. “We just have to go out and play the game and not worry about how good they are,” Van Zant said. “It is a big challenge. They have a lot of very good hitters in their lineup.” Like it is for every other sport, this series represents the biggest rivalry for the baseball team, especially with the schools being only an hour and a half away from each other.
CAREY Continued from PAGE 5 of an immediate impact. While Austin has the tools and work ethic for a strong sophomore season, his inexperience and 173-pound structure may not make him the perfect fit alongside Devine and Sanders. Still, Austin should receive at least 10 touches per game with his tremendous explosiveness
“Anytime that we play, it’ll be a rivalry game,” Van Zant said. “We like to beat them, and they like to beat us. The game always comes down to who wants it more and who can execute better on the field.” Van Zant said another interesting part of the rivalry is that since the schools are so close geographically, they recruit many of the same players. Oftentimes a few players on one team will have either played with or against players on the other team at some point prior to their college careers, Van Zant said. During the weekend, the Mountaineers will hope to keep their great offensive output alive, and much of that could be put on the back of shortstop Jedd Gyorko. Gyorko, who was named by ESPN’s Keith Law as one of the top 50 prospects for the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft, is crushing the ball in the early part of the season, hitting .359 with 13 home runs and 43 RBI out of the leadoff spot. “Jedd just goes out and doesn’t worry about what he can’t control,” Van Zant said. “That draft is completely out of his hands. All he can do is go out and play well, play hard and prepare. He’s definitely one of the best players in college baseball, and I’d like to find a person who is a better hitter than he is.” Junior outfielder Dom Hayes is also putting up good numbers at the plate. Hayes currently leads the team with a .420 batting average, and 17 of his team-leading 63 hits on the season have been for extra bases. Normally when West Virginia begins a weekend series, all-Big
East pitcher Jarryd Summers takes the mound, but according to Van Zant, that might not be the case this weekend. “We got rained out last Friday, so (Jarryd) didn’t get to pitch until Saturday,” Van Zant said.
“We’re going to wait and see how he feels after practice (Thursday) before we determine if he’ll pitch in Game 1 or if he’ll go later on in the weekend.”
and ability to create in the open field. Another receiver likely to play a big role in WVU’s offense is Brad Starks. Starks was third on the team in receptions (29) and yards (405) last season. He has the ability to stretch the field but must use his 6-foot-3 frame to become a better go-to possession wideout. Starks has been unable to take contact throughout spring practice, as he is still recovering from a sprained ankle suffered in a
pickup basketball game. The one potential offensive weapon that stands out from the rest West Virginia has to offer is running back Ryan Clarke. Clarke is a nearly 250-pound bruising backfield presence who wears down defenses and provides the Mountaineers with a change of pace. Clarke will be a key component of this year’s offense, as he is likely to get the call in the majority of short-yardage situations.
As a freshman, Clarke scored eight touchdowns and averaged 4.2 yards on 60 carries. He may be poised for a breakout sophomore season, but it remains to be seen how much of a workload Clarke can handle. He was redshirted two seasons ago for being overweight and spent the beginning portion of this spring running up and down the steps at Mountaineer Field to get in better shape. Offensive coordinator Jeff Mullen would like nothing more than to be able to count on a number of guys, but he must figure out how to make it all work. “I’m real excited about our first four or five skill guys, and I’m happy with the other ones. It’s just that they’re not ready,” Mullen said after a recent practice. If he has similar thoughts come fall, opposing defenses will know who to key in on, and West Virginia will fail to average 27 points for a third consecutive season.

Justin McDavid came nearly 3,000 miles from his hometown of Queen City, Ariz., to play baseball at West Virginia University. The Mountaineer catcher still hasn’t quite made it. McDavid, who transferred from Chandler-Gilbert Community College (Ariz.) to WVU for the 2010 season, lives with his aunt and uncle in Bruceton Mills, W.Va., – a 40-minute commute from the WVU campus. “It’s definitely tough,” McDavid said of his daily drive. “I have to make sure I have everything packed early in the morning because the days get long with class and practice.” It may be a hefty downside in being a Division I baseball player, but after all, McDavid brought it upon himself. With family living in the surrounding area, attending West Virginia University had always been in the back of the junior’s mind. Even after high school, he briefly talked with WVU head coach Greg Van Zant on possibilities of coming to Morgantown before opting to stay closer to home and play at New Mexico State. He transferred to CGCC after a one-year stop at Central Arizona College. Once his eligibility at junior colleges expired, McDavid knew he needed a change of scenery and found his way to Morgantown with a bit of persistence along with what he calls “dumb luck.” “I ended up sending coach (Van Zant) an e-mail in the summer, and he said they were look-
ing for someone to fill in as a role player,” he said. “And here I am.” With 10 former junior college transfers, McDavid knew Van Zant had always been welcome to developing older players who transfer to WVU. And while Van Zant admittedly did not recruit McDavid, after a season where he is batting .310 along with 31 RBI and 19 runs scored, the coach is glad McDavid kept the Mountaineers in mind. “McDavid has been a really big surprise for us,” Van Zant said. “He just showed up from Arizona. He wasn’t a guy that we recruited, so anytime you get some productivity out of a guy that you didn’t even know about, that is pretty good.” While McDavid is listed in his natural position of catcher, the junior has been used in more of a utility role by Van Zant. All 28 of his starts have come at first base – a position McDavid says he is becoming comfortable at. He has started every game for the Mountaineers at first base since WVU’s matchup with Illinois March 7. “McDavid has been great,” said WVU shortstop Jedd Gyorko. “He has confidence and swings the bat like he belongs at this level.” Although it has been harder than he previously expected, McDavid said he has no regrets about how he came about playing Division I baseball. “It’s been worth every bit,” he said. “I enjoy just being out on the field and playing for this team any way I can.” firstname.lastname@example.org
Rowing travels north for Big East Championship BY JAMIE MCCRACKEN SPORTS WRITER
The West Virginia rowing team will head to Worcester, Mass., Sunday to compete in the Big East Conference Championship Regatta. The Mountaineers will enter five boats in the Regatta including two varsity 8+ boats, two varsity 4+ boats and a novice 4+. It’s the largest team WVU has taken to the championship. The last two years the team was able to enter just three events. “We’ve changed some of our lineups,” said WVU head coach Jimmy King. “Most notably in the two varsity 8+ boats and the varsity fours in search of better matchups within those crews. Hopefully it made both more competitive than they were before. “We have spent more time working on our shifts from the start down to base rate and up from base to sprint.” Senior co-captain Caroline Rettig said this week’s practices have been strong, and the team is prepared heading into the championship. “I’ve been trying to make our goals clear,” Rettig said. “I’ve just been trying to make sure (my teammates) have been pushing themselves hard enough so that those goals are attainable.” The Mountaineers will hit the water against seven clubs including last year’s Big East Champion Notre Dame. The
No. 16 Fighting Irish have had another strong year and are favored to win again. Although Notre Dame will be one of the tougher opponents the Mountaineers will face this weekend, the team will also be contending against Connecticut, Rutgers, Villanova, Syracuse, Louisville and Georgetown. “Like in running and swimming, everyone has a good idea of which crews are the favorites based on prior race performances,” King said. “So it’s more a matter of trying to race your best and finish higher than your seed.” The team will be racing in Lake Quinsigamond – a lake known for its blustery environment. “Wind is the predominant concern at Lake Quinsigamond,” King said. “If there is a quartering head or tailwind, it can affect the fairness of the racecourse.” The first heats will get underway at 8:10 a.m. Sunday. “Our team’s expectations are similar to other races,” King said. “Our crews will focus on the things we can impact – our race day preparation, focus and racing – rather than what the other crews are doing, which is beyond our control. “But it is the Big East, so we also have added motivation to perform at our best.” email@example.com

Oﬀensive woes put Bobcats in 0-2 hole CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The extra practice didn’t help the Bobcats. Coach Larry Brown’s motivational speech on Orlando taking a day off while they worked failed, too. So maybe it was a good idea Charlotte took the day off Thursday. Perhaps some time away will help the Bobcats solve the riddle of putting the ball through the hoop when they return home for Game 3 Saturday. For all the talk of how Charlotte would attempt to contain Dwight Howard and Orlando’s 3-point shooters, the major reason the Bobcats are down 0-2 in the best-of-seven playoff series is the Magic have exposed their turnover-filled, dysfunctional offense. “You can’t afford on the road to take bad shots and turn the ball over,” Brown said. The Bobcats have struggled offensively all season, ranking 28th out of 30 teams in scoring (95.28 points per game) and 22nd in field goal percentage (45.3). Only woeful Minnesota averaged more turnovers than Charlotte’s 15.7 per game. The Bobcats’ limitations have been magnified playing against NBA defensive player of the year Howard and the Magic, who allowed teams to shoot an NBA-low 43.8 percent from the field during the regular season. Charlotte fell behind big early and committed 16 turnovers in a 98-89 series-opening loss Sunday. While the Bobcats practiced the next day, coach Stan Van Gundy gave the Magic the day off, prompting Brown to tell his players, “That’s how (expletive) seriously they’re taking us.” Trouble is, the Bobcats were even worse in Game 2 on Wednesday. Getting off to another tentative start, they had 30 points at halftime, 77 for the game and committed 21 turnovers in a 15point loss. So while the Bobcats have limited Howard to 20 points amid
Orlando center Dwight Howard, 12, gets oﬀ a shot in front of Charlotte Bobcats center Theo Ratliﬀ during the ﬁrst half of Game 2 in Orlando, Fla., Wednesday. foul trouble in the first two games, the Bobcats are in desperation mode despite holding the Magic to an average of 95 points. “We really didn’t get much ball movement,” center Tyson Chandler said. “In order for us to the keep Magic on their heels, we have to move the ball and get good shots at the basket. We can’t just come off looking for our jump shots. We are not a jump-shooting team.” The Bobcats were able to make it to the playoffs for the first time on the strength of Stephen Jack-
son’s acquisition and their aggressiveness in taking it to the basket. Charlotte attempted 470 more free throws than its opponents during the regular season, and its stout defense set up easy baskets. But the Bobcats went to the line just 18 times on Wednesday while the Magic shot 35 free throws. Howard’s presence in the lane – he had six blocks in the first quarter of Game 1 – has paralyzed Charlotte. “We’re having a hard time get-
ting to the free throw line,” Brown said. “I thought we were doing some pretty good things to fight back from down 22 (in Game 1). But again, you make those mistakes early you’ve got to play perfect late. And you’re playing against a quality, quality team.” There are many culprits for Charlotte’s plight. Jackson scored 27 points on Wednesday, but had seven turnovers. All-Star Gerald Wallace, struggling to drive with Howard clogging the middle, managed one point in the first half.
Trainer Baffert feeling ‘Lucky’ at Kentucky Derby LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Bob Baffert has little doubt who should be the favorite in the Kentucky Derby. The Hall of Fame trainer says Wood Memorial winner Eskendereya is “a star” and “the horse to beat.” All of which suits Baffert just fine. He’ll happily test his luck with Lookin at Lucky. The 3-year-old colt has won Baffert over with his toughness, a quality that will be in high demand when 20 horses head to the starting gate for next weekend’s Run for the Roses. “He’s not going to be intimidated by a lot of horses,” Baffert said. “He’s had a great mind since day one, the first time I ran him.” Lookin at Lucky showed that grit during the worst performance of his career in the Santa Anita Derby three weeks ago. Despite a nightmarish trip that left Baffert momentarily steamed at jockey Garrett Gomez, Lookin at Lucky got up for third. Not bad for a horse Baffert felt was finished, or maybe even injured, after seeing him check up early in the race. Baffert was so disgusted he stopped watching the race and joked that he was thankful there were no microphones in the general vicinity. “I thought, ‘This is it,’” Baffert said. “I’ve got my silver bullet just trying to get around and all that happens.” Gomez and Baffert have
patched things up and Gomez will ride the horse in the Derby. The Santa Anita Derby may have been a blessing of sorts. If Lookin at Lucky had somehow run down eventual winner Sidney’s Candy, he may have gone off as the Derby favorite. Now, all the attention – and the pressure – will be on Eskendereya and trainer Todd Pletcher, who is 0-for-24 in the Derby. “I don’t think anybody’s looking around for Lookin at Lucky,” said Baffert, who also trains Derby entry Conveyance. “Everybody is going to be worried about their own horse.” Baffert knows what he has in Lookin at Lucky. The colt was the male 2-year-old champion last year following a campaign that featured wins in the Delmar Futurity, the Norfolk Stakes and the Cash Call Futurity as well as a close second-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. The horse proved he wasn’t just a synthetic surface specialist either thanks to a game victory in the Rebel Stakes on the dirt at Oaklawn Park, when he edged Noble’s Promise by a head. In fact, Baffert thinks Lookin at Lucky prefers the dirt over synthetics. He certainly looked comfortable during a five-furlong work at Churchill Downs on Wednesday, when he covered the distance in a crisp 59.60 seconds. Baffert says he’s been “tantalized” by his horse’s ability on the dirt. “He’s not a synthetic horse,”
Baffert said. “He ran well on it because he’s a really good horse, and that’s the main thing.” One that’s still growing. Lookin at Lucky won’t even turn 3 until May and is in the midst of a growth spurt. Which could make Lookin at Lucky be a more viable Derby prospect than Pioneer of the Nile, whom Baffert saddled in last year’s Derby. The horse finished second on a muddy track, but was merely a bystander as long shot Mine That Bird roared to victory. Baffert admits it took him awhile to figure out how Mine That Bird prevented him from becoming the fourth trainer to win at least four Derbys, but allows that Lookin at Lucky may be better fit for what’s in store on Derby Day. Though Lookin at Lucky hasn’t been nearly as dominant as Eskendereya, who has won his last two races by a combined 18¼ lengths, that’s not necessarily a
bad thing. Lookin at Lucky is a grinder. His biggest margin of victory in any race is 1¾ lengths and he appears to have little trouble dealing with traffic. Good thing, because there’ll be plenty of it next Saturday. Yet Baffert has been around long enough to know that it takes more than a mature horse to win the Derby. He hasn’t entered the Winner’s Circle in the Derby since 2002, a lifetime considering he won his three Derbys in a six-year stretch between 1997-98. Will the streak end next Saturday? Maybe. Baffert’s here with a horse that has all the qualities a Derby winner needs.
Wall heading to NBA as agent search continues LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — John Wall looked toward the back of the room at his mother, Frances Pulley, and just shook his head. Kentucky’s freshman star remembers the way she worked multiple jobs while he was growing up so they’d be able to get by. The long days that would leave her exhausted, so tired she didn’t always get to see him play. He knows it’s time to start paying her back and why the opportunities – and the riches – that lay ahead in the NBA outweigh returning for his sophomore season. “I just want to set up a better life for my mom,” Wall said Thursday. “All the work she put in after my dad passed, she had 2-3 jobs and not really seeing her as much. People ask me what I’m going to do with my money, I ain’t worried about it.” Wall’s combination of size (6-foot-4) and speed in the open floor will be highly coveted at the next level. He’s considered a favorite to be the top pick in the draft. If his name is the first one called by NBA commissioner David Stern at Madison Square Garden on June 24, he’ll become the first Kentucky player to be taken with the top overall selection. Not that Wall is concerned about when he’ll make his way to the stage. “If I get that No. 1 pick, it’s going to be a dream come true,” said Wall, who has yet to hire an agent. “But no matter where I go I’m going to be happy, because I reached my goal.” It’s a goal Wall feels he wouldn’t have been prepared for without spending a year at Kentucky. Lured to the Wildcats by new coach John Calipari last spring, Wall followed in the footsteps of former Calipari-coached point guard phenoms Derrick Rose and Tyreke Evans. The duo spent one season under Calipari at Memphis before becoming impact players in the NBA. Calipari expects Wall to do the same, saying at one point during the season that Wall’s development was actually ahead of Rose and Evans. Wall, the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, averaged 16.6 points and set a school record with 241 assists. Kentucky went 35-3 and won the SEC regular season and conference tournament titles be-

fore falling to West Virginia in the regional finals of the NCAA Tournament. Though he was hailed as savior by the Kentucky faithful, Wall deflected the praise for Kentucky’s remarkable one-year renaissance to his teammates and his coaches. He is one of five Wildcats – including freshmen Eric Bledsoe, DeMarcus Cousins and Daniel Orton – who are heading to the NBA early. Besides, he knows he’s just part of a pipeline. Calipari has already signed Florida prep star Brandon Knight to fill the void at point guard next fall and Indiana high school prodigy Marquis Teague verbally committed to Kentucky in 2011 on Thursday. “People say I was the guy who changed the program around,” he said. “But it wasn’t just me that changed it. ... I couldn’t do it by myself. This is not high school. I couldn’t go one-onone and just win every game. You had to trust your teammates and Coach Cal taught me how to be a better leader.” Call it part of the growing-up process, both on and off the court. Though he came to Kentucky with sky-high expectations, he also came with baggage. He made headlines shortly before signing with the Wildcats after he and two friends were cited for breaking and entering an abandoned home in Raleigh, though the citation was later dismissed. There were no such incidents during his short stay in Lexington. Calipari – whom Wall called a “father figure” – praised his precocious point guard’s efforts in the classroom. Wall isn’t done with school yet, he rushed out of the press conference to take a geology test and pledged to return to Lexington during the NBA offseasons to work toward his degree. “I grew up a whole lot,” Wall said. “From the things I did back in the past, just taking life more seriously, taking school more seriously. I matured a lot.” He hasn’t quite mastered everything, however. He laughingly admitted he still struggles with doing his laundry and has no idea how to cook. His wardrobe could use a makeover too. He says he has just one suit – a black pinstripe he wore on Thursday – but hopes to find a new one before the draft.

PRESIDENT’S DAY MASSACRE
Warner Theatre to debut presidential horror film Friday BY JAMIE CARBONE
CAMPUS CALENDAR EDITOR
The Warner Theatre will host an independent film about a murderous Abraham Lincoln Friday. “President’s Day” features a high school election gone horribly wrong when a killer dresses up as Lincoln and starts eliminating the candidates. A combination of classic horror films and the cult classic “Election,” “President’s Day” is the brain child of independent filmmakers and co-writers Jimmy George and Chris LaMartina. “I grew up on a healthy
diet of gory horror flicks and ’80s slasher movies,” LaMartina said. “‘President’s Day’ started out as my love letter to those types of movies, but as we wrote the script, we quickly realized how much fun we could have by using a high school student council election as the centerpiece of the story.” LaMartina also directed and edited the film. “President’s Day” is LaMartina’s fourth film. He and George previously worked together on “Book of Lore” and “Grave Mistakes,” both of which took home awards at the ShockerFest International
Film Festival during the years they were released. LaMartina has also created several fake film trailers to be shown with the movie as part of a project he created called “Lost Trailer Park: Never Coming Attractions.” “I thought it was an excuse to produce some ideas that might not hold enough value to turn into a feature length film,” LaMartina said about the trailers. The idea was originally created as part of a brainstorming session about doing a triple feature involving three 40-minute movies. “I thought having Abe
Lincoln as a killer was too iconic and fantastic to waste on a 40-minute short,” George said. George co-wrote and helped produce the film. “We plotted out the major story points, characters and kills together,” George said. “Chris wrote a draft, then I wrote a draft, then he polished it up a bit. Within three weeks we had a final draft. Within three months we were shooting. We have never moved faster on a project than we did with ‘President’s Day.’” “President’s Day” was shot with a budget of $5,000. George attempted to
make it big in Hollywood many times before returning to his native Baltimore and he’s thankful for the success he and LaMartina have found through the film. “I wouldn’t consider what we do as ‘working’ in the film industry,” George said. “It wasn’t until I started collaborating with Chris that I had success. After three films and six screenplays together, we are just finally opening doors and making connections in the industry that may bring our stories to a wider audience.” The two already have their next project in mind,
“Witch’s Brew,” a story about how a witch curses a batch of alcohol so that anyone who drinks it meets a terrible demise. “President’s Day” will shown at the Warner Theatre at 7 p.m. A question and answer session with George and LaMartina will follow. “President’s Day” will also be accompanied by the short film “Mike Wuz Here,” shot by West Virginia University senior journalism major and The Daily Athenaeum film critic Justin Channell. Tickets are $5. firstname.lastname@example.org
HaveYouSeen? German horror spoof ‘Killer Community Arts Program Condom’ a surprisingly clever social satire to showcase young talent BY AARON DAWSON
A&E FILM CRITIC
Oddball films have been getting a lot more attention these days, with movies streaming for free on websites such as Hulu. com. For example, B-movie studio Troma Entertainment successfully released several films from its catalog on Hulu. The lurid title “A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell” even managed to become the third most watched movie on the website. While audiences might have had second thoughts about renting or buying a movie with such a ludicrous title in past distribution methods, online channels have allowed off-kilter content to reach a curious audience and still generate advertising revenue. Another film from Troma’s
library that has been getting several views based on the title alone is “Killer Condom,” a horror-spoof with the outrageous tagline “the rubber that rubs you out.” While many will surely click on the movie based on the title alone – and if they’re lucky like me, their online presentation will be ironically sponsored by Trojan – what they will find is a surprisingly clever social satire disguised as exploitation. But first they will probably notice the odd language barrier the film presents, as “Killer Condom” was a German production that takes place and was shot in New York City. Despite the locale, the entire cast still speaks German, which at first seems disorienting. But consider how many Hollywood films where foreign countries are portrayed with English-speaking actors. Based on a cult comic book from writer Ralf Konig, “Killer Condom” stars Udo Samel as
a homosexual NYPD detective Luigi Macaroni, who has just been assigned to the weirdest case of his life. At a seedy sex hotel appropriately named Hotel Quickie, multiple men have been hospitalized after having their genitalia severed. While investigating, Macaroni ends up falling into temptation with a gigolo named Billy (Marc Richter). While in their room at the Hotel Quickie, he makes the frightening discovery of what is causing the genital mutilation, and it is even more shocking than he could imagine: The condoms supplied by the hotel are actually living organisms with razor-sharp teeth. After losing one of his testicles while battling the killer condom, Macaroni starts digging even deeper to find out the secrets behind this unspeakable evil. Once the film actually starts
to get into the plot surrounding these mutated contraceptives, it becomes an immersing satire on the religious rights battle against pre-marital sex and homosexuality. Of course, no one is going to watch a movie called “Killer Condom” and expect to catch any of that. This is why it’s great to catch for free on Hulu. Besides, it saves curious parties from having to explain why there’s a DVD of “Killer Condom” setting on the shelf. For anyone who likes subversive and weird B-movies, definitely check out “Killer Condom,” as it exceeds the already low-expectations one would have from a film with such a title – especially one distributed by Troma.

Watching a 6-year-old play piano isn’t just something you can see on “America’s Got Talent.” The West Virginia University Community Arts Program will present its gifted young talent to the public Saturday afternoon. Comprised mostly of performances by piano students, the performers’ ages are between 6 to 48, and they will demonstrate the progress they have made as a result of their lessons with WVU’s Community Arts faculty. The youngest student, 6-year-old pianist Kasia Jaczynska, will play an arrangement of a traditional folk tune, while father and daughter team Mackenzie and Rodney Richmond will play another piano arrangement, “Old McDonald.” In addition to the piano pieces, the Community Arts Flute Ensemble, featuring three junior high and high school students under the direction of Dorothy Skidmore, will also perform. Among other pieces, the en-
semble will play “Melody from Orpheus” by Christoph Gluck, “The Sparrow’s Party” by Antonin Dvorak and “Danse des Mirlitons” from the Peter Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite.” “It’s been a wonderful thing being able to witness the development of a young musician’s progress from a beginner to an early, intermediate and advanced student and watch them perform on these end-of-semester recitals year to year,” said Natalie Buckley, one of Community Arts’ coordinators. The recital begins at 1:30 p.m. in the Creative Art Center Bloch Learning and Performance Hall. Community Arts accepts students of all ages in all of the instruments mentioned above, in addition to guitar, violin, and music theory, and the program extends to art, theater and dance. Group classes are also available. To find out more about Community Arts, log on to www.communityarts.wvu.edu. firstname.lastname@example.org

SpringFest brings national, local music to Mylan Park BY JORDAN PACK A&E WRITER
Rapper Big Boi from Outkast, hip-hop duo Shwayze and trance/pop artist JES are SpringFest’s headliners. The event is a two-day, multigenre music festival taking place this weekend at Morgantown’s Mylan Park.
Sara Wozniak, VIP/hospitality coordinator for show sponsor TheRubberU, hopes to give students and Morgantown residents something they’ve never had: an all-day outdoor music festival. “The amount of talent this year doesn’t compare to last year,” Wozniak said. “We are now on a nationally headlining scale
Former Outkast member Big Boi is one of the headliners at SpringFEST.
with our new acts as opposed to regional and local talent.” Wozniak said she hopes SpringFEST will become a nationally known festival, similar to ones like Coachella and Bonnaroo. “We just really want to bring that good music atmosphere into Morgantown,” she said. “TheRubberU strives to give WVU students and people of Morgantown events that are not going on anywhere else. We’re trying to give people what they want.” Other acts include the Davisson Brothers Band, VS. The Earth, Punchline, The Greens, Fletchers Grove, Late Night Sex and other local and regional musicians. Various activities will also be available to the festivalgoers. “Aside from the music, we have a mechanical bull and surfboard, as well as a Queen of SpringFest contest, which we hope to be a crowd pleaser with increased crowd participation,” Wozniak said. Attractions such as dunk tanks and martial arts demonstrations are also accessible during the event, along with assorted vendors selling food products, beer and clothing items like T-shirts. Wozniak said this year’s SpringFest will be a great experience. “There are so many kinds of people in one area,” she said. “The most exciting thing is the activity and energy that will be going on as well as the actual festival experience itself.” Ticketholders will also have the opportunity for free transportation with shuttle bus runs
Art seniors host exhibit at Wild Zero BY AARON DAWSON A&E WRITER
After four years in the College of Creative Arts, Jenna Bonitatibus and Sage Perrott will present their last art shows while students at West Virginia University tonight at Wild Zero Studios. The show, titled “Cups & Creatures,” will present Bonitatibus’ mugs and Perrott’s prints in the interior space of the tattoo shop located on Pleasant Street. All art will be for sale. Perrott, a printmaking major expected to graduate in May, said that although what she and Bonitatibus will present is different, they are in some ways similar. “Both are difficult to make, but each can be reproduced as faithfully as the first,” Perrott said. In addition to prints of Perrott’s creatures, buttons and prints of plants will also be for sale. Perrott has been accepted to Ohio University’s graduate program for printmaking and plans to begin her studies there in the fall. Bonitatibus, a senior ceramics major, will present approximately 100 mugs, and Perrott will exhibit approximately 10 prints. While this event is not sponsored by WVU, Bonitatibus and
Perrott will be presenting and selling art they made in school and some art made for their senior capstone projects. Perrott and Bonitatibus decided to do an art show together after realizing how many pieces they had left from their Bachelor of Fine Arts capstone and other classes taken during their time as art majors. “Because we have different
majors, we normally wouldn’t have a chance to present our work in the same place,” Perrott said. “So we decided to take this opportunity to do a show together.” The art show begins at 8 p.m. and will last until 11 p.m. Refreshments will be provided and all ages are welcome. email@example.com

Benefit for miners at Lizard tonight BY MACKENZIE MAYS ASSOCIATE A&E EDITOR
Soul Miners members Adrain Michaelz, left, and Jake Hiles, right, perform. Tonight’s benefit, ‘Soul Miners for Coal Miners,’ starts at 6 p.m.
The Adventure West Virginia Leadership Committee is hosting “Soul Miners for Coal Miners,” a benefit designed to raise money for the families of fallen miners, tonight at de Lazy Lizard. Local band The Soul Miners will perform at the event, which will offer raffles, door prizes and giveaways. All proceeds will be donated to the Upper Big Branch Family Fund to help support the families of the 29 miners who lost their lives in the Montcoal, W.Va., mine disaster. Maddy Hoden, a graduate recreation, parks and tourism student at West Virginia University and member of the AWVLC, said the committee did not hesitate to start doing what they could to help those who were affected by the tragedy. “When this (the tragedy) hit, we

Happy Hour at De Lazy Lizard 6-9pm on Friday, April 23, 2010 Featuring THE SOUL MINERS $5 Cover, 18 and over All Proceeds Beneﬁt Fund

knew we had to do something for our fellow West Virginians,” Hoden said. “I remember following the Sago Mine disaster and feeling so helpless. This state and the University has been very good to me these last few years, and I wasn’t going to just sit back and do nothing. This is the least I could do for the people of West Virginia.” In addition to the raffles, the benefit will offer ribbons and Tshirts in honor of the fallen miners, and a portion of drinks purchased at the bar will also be donated to the cause, Hoden said. The goal of the night is to raise $5,000 and Hoden has high hopes for the event. “The max occupancy of the floor at de Lazy Lizard is 500 people, and we want 500 people to come out for the cause,” Hoden said. The Soul Miners is a Morgantown-based classic soul/R&B group, which describes its genre of music as “music that makes people dance and feel all right,” deriving influences from Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles and Michael Jackson. Forrest Schwartz, coordinator
of the AWVLC programs at WVU and drummer for The Soul Miners, said the band is glad to be a part of the event and hopes to do as much as they can for the cause. “We feel honored to have been invited to provide the entertainment for the evening and to be part of the Upper Big Branch Family Fund efforts. For us, the whole evening will be in honor of the miners,” Schwartz said. “As a band, we just want folks to have a good time, to smile, to laugh, to dance and give what they can to the cause. Our hope is that when people leave they’ll turn to a friend and say ‘damn that was a good time. I’m glad we were there.’” Hoden and Schwartz recognized the WVU Center for Civic Engagement, WVU Student Government Association and Young West Virginians for Coal for their support of the event. “Soul Miners for Coal Miners” starts at 6 p.m. There is a $5 dollar cover charge, which will also be donated to the Upper Big Branch Fund. Attendees must be at least 18 years old. email@example.com
