Team aims to find bee disease solution

VOL. 125 NO. 134


Club creates traditional food market Other student groups to table, bring cuisine to Reaney Park event By Naphtali Calles Evergreen reporter


Brandon Hopkins, assistant research professor in the Department of Entomology, speaks about how new research may lead to fewer honeybee losses on Wednesday at Food Science and Human Nutrition building.

Commission groups grant $200,000 to help reduce bee colony starvation, loss By Cheryl Aarnio Evergreen reporter


WSU research team will study refrigeration storage in hopes that there will be fewer losses from parasites during almond pollination.

The grants from the Almond Board of California and the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission totaled $200,000 for three 20-foot by 8-foot cargo containers, which will arrive in August, said Brandon Hopkins, assistant research professor in the department of entomology. Once the team received those grants, they applied for and received a $500,000 grant from the United States Department of Agriculture. With this,

they can push forward on the research and focus on collaboration with the Bee Informed Partnership. The researchers will study refrigerated storage of bees under commercial beekeepers, Hopkins said. The Bee Informed Partnership will take samples of the bees and collect data, which will allow them to measure the disease transmission, he said. See Bees Page A6

The Taiwanese Student Association (TSA) is hosting its annual night market from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday at Reaney Park. “Our association began this event at WSU because international students leave their country and sometimes miss the food from home,” TSA President Kai-Yi Wang said. There is no admission fee for the market, Wang said, and attendees can purchase raffle tickets for 50 cents. The average cost for food is between three to four tickets. “The night market is basically a bunch of little markets where food is sold,” he said. “In night markets in Taiwan, there are a lot of immigrants from China who needed to find a job … they originated the night markets, and we thought it’d be fun to bring this to Pullman.” TSA Marketing Chair Jean Hsieh said night markets in See Market Page A6


Researchers study effects of alcohol concentration in wine Alcohol chemical level can affect sensory perception, mouthfeel, aromatic effects By Cameron Sheppard Evergreen reporter

Research done by scientists at WSU suggests that wine’s alcohol concentration may play a larger role than other properties of the wine in determining its taste, aroma and mouthfeel.

Everyone who makes wine in the world has the same problem.

Senators to vote on recommendations on titles Modernization Initiative adds pressure on faculty to find accurate categories By Elayne Rodriguez Evergreen reporter

Faculty senators will vote this coming fall on whether or not they approve of the recommended changes for WSU tracks and appointment titles. Judi McDonald, faculty senate past chair, said the senate has the absolute power to determine the ideal tracks and appointment titles for faculty and then make changes.

We are trying to set this basic structure to build on. Pamela Thoma senator

McDonald said the WSU Modernization Initiative, which aims to update the university’s Administrative Information Systems, is pressuring faculty because the modernization effort pushes the faculty to decide on categories as soon as possible. “If we do not act on this now, we will set up those categories under the old system and then completely rework a more sophisticated structure,” she said. Pamela Thoma, senator for the College of Arts and Sciences, said faculty are already struggling in terms of titles and how to promote themselves. Thoma said faculty have an irrational set of categories and engaging in the modernization initiative would help to make


Pamela Thoma, senator for the College of Arts and Sciences, raises concerns about a proposed change to the faculty manual that could affect faculty promotions and tenure tracks Thursday in the Food Science and Human Nutrition building. it rational. “We have the flexibility to say, ‘This is your appointment,’ but your working title can be different as approved by your own,” she said. Rachel Sanchez, senator for the College of Arts and Sciences, said faculty can call themselves whatever is appropriate. She said some faculty cannot move

from a tenure-track position to a non-tenure track. Sanchez said instructors who have worked for decades have held appropriate titles and feel that the recommended titles may not represent them well. Thoma said she suggested referring to some faculty as career-track rather than temporary.

“Part of why we are having problems sorting this out is [because] we are doing different things, and we are trying to set this basic structure to build on and not interfere with what is wrong,” she said. Thoma said there should be a way to make the titles professional. Sanchez said losing the

recognition of working with the university for a long time may bring a bad distinction between career faculty and short-term faculty. “I think we have an ethical responsibility [of] being considered what this vision could put in place down the line in other aspects in the university,” Sanchez said.

Snowpack in Idaho could affect season for river guides Rafting companies watch weather, cancels trips when necessary By Eli Francovich The Spokesman-Review

A solid snowpack in Idaho has river guides hoping for a good 2019 season. But the next few weeks will prove decisive in determining that, said Peter Grubb, the co-founder and owner of ROW Adventures based in Coeur d’Alene. “The best-case scenario for us is that the rest of April is kind of cool that we don’t get temperatures over 70,” he said. “The longer that lasts, (the more) your snowpack will actually go up. Not because there is more snow, but because less of it’s melting.” Lower-level snow means the ground is saturated, which helps summer flows in two ways, Grubb said. First, it means that melting snowpack runs into the river and doesn’t soak into the earth. It also replenishes the water table, which means that springs and streams will feed into larger rivers later into the summer. “Really, what it boils down to is what kind of weather we have in the next six weeks,” Grubb said. ROW runs trips on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, the Salmon River, the Snake River, the St. Joe, Lochsa and Bruneau rivers among others. Snowpack in the Salmon Basin was 111 percent of normal; the Lochsa River Basin 93 percent of normal; the Owyhee 130 percent

of normal and the Bruneau 121 percent of normal as of last week. Ron Abramovich, water supply specialist for NRCS Snow Survey in Idaho, told the Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association that “all of the snow is going to provide a great runoff season,” according to a press release. Dustin Aherin, the owner of Idaho River Adventures, agreed, although he emphasized that much can change in the next month or so. “It is looking to be a perfect river season at this point, though the next six weeks will really be the deciding factor in that,” he said in an email. “The snowpack in the Salmon River drainage is just above normal, a great spot to be. This should mean a fun start to the river season in late May/ June with fun whitewater, then a good water year throughout the remainder of the summer with the flow hopefully not getting too terribly low.” Aside from running the river, the above-average snowpack is good for cold water fisheries on the Salmon and Clearwater drainages. Aherin said that will keep “the river temps cool enough to be healthy for the native Westslope cutthroat we fish for on the Middle Fork Salmon as well as the wild steelhead and salmon that will be migrating as smolts to the ocean as well as the adults returning to spawn later in the summer.” Rafting companies watch the weather avidly. Too much snow can make rivers dangerous. “We do cancel trips when it’s necessary,” Grubb said.


ROW Adventures, based in Coeur d’Alene, offers trips on rivers like Clark Fork, Lochsa and Spokane. The next few weeks will be the determining factor of the 2019 season. Predicting how a river, or particular section of river, will behave involves science and educated guessing. For instance, Grubb said, a particularly hot Thursday or Friday could force the cancellation of a weekend Lochsa trip. That’s because flows spike 24 or 48 hours after a heat event melts higher-mountain snow enters the system. “It can be really volatile,” he said. In addition to the normal unpredictably of weather, a changing climate has added layers of uncertainty. During

California’s seven-year drought, which ended this year, many river guide services had to stop running popular rivers like the Kern because there wasn’t enough water. As in Washington, a warming climate in Idaho will mean less snowpack, faster runoff events and lower, warmer rivers and streams during the hottest summer months. Between 1971 and 2005 the average annual temperature increase in the Snake River Plain was 1.4 degrees Celsius, according to a 2011 Boise State

University study. Like with most things climate change related the effects aren’t necessarily clear cut for those on the ground. Aherin, who has been guiding trips on the Middle Fork of the Salmon for decades, said he hasn’t seen climate change impact the river season in one consistent way. Instead, he said, “15 years ago, we kind of had this ability to say this is predictable and typical weather on the Middle Fork. Honestly, you can’t do that anymore. It’s climate change is what it is.”

Faculty recognize designer for originality Student’s family overcame obstacles, fueled his work, unique aesthetic earns him Outstanding Designer honor


By Chloe Grundmeier Evergreen reporter

ne fashion student used his family’s hardship as motivation to make an impact with his college career. Outstanding Junior Designer Sovann Robinson is pursuing three majors and pulling regular all-nighters for his projects. “If we have a semester-long project, I always grind my ass off,” Robinson said. “I feel like I’m obligated to do my best for my family. I can’t blow this shot — I’m not going to do just basic work.” The Apparel, Merchandising,

Design and Textiles (AMDT) faculty recognize several students each year as outstanding designers and merchandisers to be celebrated at the annual Mom’s Weekend Fashion Show. Robinson received the recognition of Outstanding Junior Designer for his outside-the-box designs, he said. “His designs tend to have a pretty unique aesthetic,” AMDT associate professor Carol Salusso said. “He brings together fabrics you wouldn’t assume would go together so they have a freshness. I don’t remember the most [about] what he designs, though, I remember his excitement about it.” Robinson’s mother is a first-generation Cambodian immigrant. Her parents

met in a refugee camp in Thailand when they fled the Cambodian genocide carried out by the Khmer Rouge party. They brought their young daughters to Washington state as refugees. Sovann’s black father’s family comes from sharecropping, he said. His parents were 16 when he was born and they worked their hardest so Robinson could follow his dreams, he said. “I’m so proud of the past blood, sweat and tears of my family to give me the privilege to follow a purely creative goal,” Robinson said. “I can’t be proud of myself. I give all the credit to my upbringing.” Robinson said that design found him, not the other way around. A friend got him involved in the design world and he thought of design as his “fall back” plan. He decided if he

didn’t find something else he loved, he would be fine with design. The longer he stayed and the fonder of his peers he became, the more natural the fit felt. “I’ve seen my peers grow and now I want to see what they can do,” Robinson said. “I couldn’t care less if I’m good at designing. I just like the energy, I like the creativity and I just love the environment.” Robinson pulls inspiration for his designs from his senses. He said he often takes note of the world he’s in, noticing the color of a jacket or the certain style of someone’s shoe. Art has recently become an inspiration for him as well as he’s seen the way some artists can combine colors to create a mood. He’s also inspired See Designer Page A7

Marketing student runs skateboard company Junior from Portland works with local artists for his board’s designs By Vonnai Phair Evergreen reporter


Junior marketing major Noah Moncrieff explains how he started Yew Skateboards on Tuesday afternoon at the Delta Beta Chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta.

“Yew” is a word people use in action sports to express excitement and celebration when someone lands a trick. For Noah Moncrieff, a junior at WSU, this word is his business. He said it perfectly captures his passion for skateboarding, and it is the word he chose to name his very own skateboard company. Moncrieff’s first introduction to skateboarding came after a 13-year soccer career. He traded his cleats and shin pads for a board and some knee pads and never looked back. “My dad was a skateboarder in the 80s in Canada, so there was always a board around the house,” Moncrieff said. When he lived in Portland, Oregon, Moncrieff noticed a lack of skate shops in a city that normally supports local businesses. He decided then that he wanted his own company. He said the idea to form his

skateboard retailer came from his dad, who wanted to start a skate shop in 2013. They knew people with skills in graphic design and figured it would come to fruition. Owning a company comes with a lot of responsibilities, especially when it is a one-man show. Currently, Moncrieff is the only person working for the company. “I do everything,” Moncrieff said. “I do all of the social media. I create all of the website content. I do all the shipping. I do all of the orders and processing.” Moncrieff works with local artists and friends to create the designs that adorn the backs of his boards. He transfers the designs from paper, or even sometimes cardboard, to a computer and then sends them to a distribution company in California. The final result: original graphics that Moncrieff uses on his boards while proudly supporting local artists. “I love supporting local because I know how hard it can be sometimes,” Moncrieff said. One of the biggest components of Moncrieff’s daily life is time management. He said difficulty arises when he has to juggle See Skateboard Page A7

‘Asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness’ Student group holds burpee challenge event during Mom’s Weekend to raise mental health awareness By Dylan Greene Evergreen deputy sports editor


n just over a month, the 3 FOR 3 Burpee Challenge has raised about $10,000 for the Hilinski’s Hope Foundation. The campaign was started by a

group of six WSU sport management students with the goal of raising mental health awareness and destigmatizing the illness. All people have to do is record a video of themselves doing 3 burpees, challenge 3 friends to do it and post it on social media.

The motto for the campaign is “get up for those who are down.” The movement has swept the nation, and this Friday on top of the Holland and Terrell Libraries, the group will be recording videos of people of all ages who choose to participate in the challenge. The free event will be held from 2-4 p.m. and will include raffle prizes. Hilinski’s Hope merchandise will be

available for purchase. All the money raised during the event and the challenge will be donated to Hilinski’s Hope. Kym Hilinski, whose son Tyler died from suicide over a year ago, said the campaign the students created was a perfect fit for what both of them hope to accomplish. “I think they are doing more than See Challenge Page A8

wines made from grapes of varied maturity. The wines were blind-taste-tested by a panel of trained tasters for a descriptive analysis of their flavors and properties. He said this study provides a basis to help winemakers understand how alcohol concentration affects the flavor, aroma and mouthfeel of their wine. “We wanted to understand what elements are present that are really affecting things,” Harbertson said. He said alcohol has a lot of chemical effects that influence the sensory perception of wine more than flavor alone. Alcohol can affect the viscosity and body of wine. It can inhibit a nerve response, causing a hot or burning feeling. It can also have aromatic effects.

The purpose of this research revolves around the Varroa mite, Hopkins said. “Varroa mite is, far and away, the biggest problem in beekeeping,” he said. Varroa mites reproduce inside the cells with brood — young, developing bees — and the parasites feed on them, Hopkins said. By putting honeybee colonies in a cold, dark place like refrigeration storage, the queen bee will stop laying eggs, which means no growing bees will be in covered honeycomb cells, he said. “The mites are really hard to kill when they’re in the brood [and] when they’re capped behind cells. If there’s no brood, the mites are just crawling around on the bees and any little thing you do that controls mites works really well,” said Entomology Department Chair Steve Sheppard. The cover on the cell makes treating for mites difficult, Sheppard said. There are safer chemicals for bees that can be used to treat for mites when there is no brood, Sheppard said. With brood, the keepers have to use long-lasting, synthetic chemicals to kill the mites because the chemical lingers until the brood come out. The mites will not all be killed, but most will die — about 97 percent, Hopkins said. “The idea is to keep [the mites] at a low enough level where it doesn’t cause damage to the colony,” he said. Beekeepers take their bees to California in the winter, so they can pollinate the almond crop in February, Hopkins said. A beekeeper could not wait until February to take thousands of colo-

Harbertson said wine producers typically look to use the maturity of their grapes to determine the quality and characteristics of their wine.

They can . . . start making more informed decisions. Jim Harbertson professor

“Every year people spend tons of money and time sending people out to vineyards to take samples to evaluate maturity,” Harbertson said. Using samples to evaluate the maturity of grapes can be difficult and inaccurate, he said, as each plant on the vineyard

ripens at different rates. “This problem is universal,” Harbertson said. “Everyone who makes wine in the world has the same problem.” Kay Simon, a wine producer at Chinook Wines and collaborator on this study, said soluble solids like sugars increase in grapes as they mature, and this subsequently affects the ethanol content of the wine, so deciding when to harvest grapes is important for wine style and quality. Harbertson said this study will help wine producers understand what characteristics their wine will assume if they harvest their grapes earlier or later in the season. “They can ... start making more informed decisions about what they are doing,” he said.

Market | Continued from Page A1 Taiwan usually begin at 7 p.m., but they will host it at noon to gain more foot traffic. They are expecting at least 400 people to attend the event. “Night market originally only had TSA selling their food,” she said. “We decided that it would be fun to have other associations join as well.” Hsieh said there will be vendors from the Hong Kong, Indonesian, Japanese and Korean student associations. The Chinese Students and Scholars Association will also make an

appearance at the market. “TSA will be selling braised pork rice and bubble tea,” she said. “I know that the Japanese Student Association will be selling Yakisoba.” Wang said this event is a great way to fuse together different cultures and socialize through food. He said the majority of attendees are students, but plenty of community members visit as well. “My first year [at WSU], my English was not very good, and I

didn’t have many ways of socially interacting with other students,” Wang said. “This night market makes it easier because sharing food is a great conversation starter.” All of the food will be homemade by the students from these organizations, Hsieh said. “Our TSA adviser is from Taiwan and moved here a long time ago, and his child didn’t know a lot about Taiwanese culture,” Wang said. “He brings her and teaches her more about his culture through this event.”

nies to California. With refrigeration storage, the bees can be taken to California in January instead of in November since they essentially hibernate in the storage, Hopkins said, which would reduce bee losses. In California, beekeepers nationwide put their bee colonies all in one place, called holding yards, he said. “One really unusual thing is this crop of almonds. It requires well over a million colonies to pollinate them, so it’s requiring more than half of the managed colonies in the United States to be on a single crop at a weird time of year,” Sheppard said. Beekeepers have seen issues with the holding yards in recent years. Some beekeepers lose 40 percent of their colonies because of them, Hopkins said. The bees are close together. They are hungry, so stronger colonies rob the weaker colonies of food. This adds to disease transmission throughout the colonies because weaker colonies typically have diseases, Hopkins said. Refrigeration storage will help reduce these bee burglaries, he said. Sheppard also said the stability in temperature will help reduce starvation, since bees eat more to keep their temperature at 70 degrees Fahrenheit. When the bees are kept in a 40-degree refrigerator, they only have to compensate for 30 degrees and will eat less than when they are outside in the winter. “By using this indoor storage, it gives the beekeepers a big advantage in treating the mites,” Sheppard said. “The mites are one of the worst problems for the bees.”

Designer | Continued from Page A4 by music, specifically abrasive experimental hip hop. Robinson’s designs are often patchwork, asymmetrical and deconstructed-looking, he said, as he likes to be creative and out of the box. His favorite design, he said, was an asymmetrical patchwork jacket made with bird-print and plaid fabrics. He more recently used the leftover fabrics for a matching skirt that uses negative space, visible zippers and an uneven length. “If you make something that isn’t well-done and doesn’t serve

the people that use it, you’ve wasted your time and money and resources,” Salusso said. “Design should be purposeful, and [Robinson] does a good amount of that with the patchwork pieces.” A piece he designed and described as “boring but cute that you might be able to find in Abercrombie” took the idea of a simple cowl neck dress, in a different direction with his creative touch. Robinson said he loves negative space and the look of a visible, hanging zipper that

gave the “boring” dress a slightly edgier look. “A lot of designers love the process, like the sketching or the sewing — I hate all of that,” Robinson said. “I just want to see the final product on a person. Starting a vision, working through the vision and having it be exactly what you imagined is the most rewarding feeling.” Robinson’s patchwork jacket will be featured in the Mom’s Weekend Fashion Show at 6 p.m. Friday in Beasley Coliseum. Admission is $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Skateboard | Continued from Page A4 schoolwork and his company, especially when it is time to send orders out to customers. “I wish I had other people, but it is fun doing everything, too … I just wish I had an accountant,” Moncrieff said. A close friend of Moncrieff’s, Thor Stoppard is a junior at WSU studying sports management and an avid skateboarder. Stoppard said Moncrieff’s passion for skateboarding is a constant in his life. “There is not a day that goes by where [Moncrieff] doesn’t

skate, but if the weather doesn’t allow him to, he’s watching skateboard videos or working on things involved with Yew,” Stoppard said. Stoppard also said it is inspiring to watch Moncrieff run Yew because he started the company years ago, and now runs it successfully as a college student. Even if Yew does not become a large company one day, Moncrieff said he still intends on running the company after college. His company combines two of his biggest passions, he said.

“I do art all the time, and I skateboard all the time,” Moncrieff explained. Moncrieff’s favorite pro-skateboarder is Cory Kennedy, a Seattle native. Moncrieff said Kennedy is the reason he continued skating through his teenage years. He even said they look alike. “His style of skating and the way he comes off is a full circle of who I strive to be,” Moncrieff said. You can keep up with Yew on Instagram or Facebook with the handle YewSkateboards, or using the company’s website.

stop working.” Freshman outfielder and lefthanded pitcher Tyson Guerrero said he feels lucky to have his mom, Lisa, because she inspires him to be great at what he does. Guerrero said what he loves most about his mom is how supportive she is, even though sports isn’t her particular area of interest. “My mom has never really been a sports lady, but she’s always at my games cheering me on,” Guerrero said. “No matter how rough of a game I had, she was always there for me.” Plew said whenever he has a tough time at the plate or on the field his mom lets him know that

he still did an awesome job. What has impacted these two players the most is the morals their mothers instilled in them that have carried onto the baseball field. “My mom turned me into a respectful young man, which has helped me become a leader,” Guerrero said. Sophomore outfielder Collin Montez said he’s fortunate that his mother, Joliene, shaped him into Montez a great all-around person. Montez said he’s thankful for everything his

mom has sacrificed for him to get where he is today. “My mom has bought me a lot of gear over the years,” Montez said. “I appreciate all of that because equipment and club teams can cost quite a bit.” Plew said that his mom has always made sure he was kind and respectful to everyone. He also said his mother helped him become more vocal on the field, which has allowed him to become a leader to the younger players on the team. “My mom is definitely the loud talker of the family,” Plew said. “In order to talk you have to out-talk her and talk louder. I can guarantee that is what has made me louder on the field.”

Anything that symbolizes Tyler’s No. 3 is good enough — whether that’s holding up three fingers or clapping three times. Kym said the money the student group has already raised enough to pay mental health professionals for the installment of a program called Strength is Asking for Help: Athlete to Athlete Mental Health Training at one university, which costs between $5,000 and $7,000. Michalkova said the students’ goal for the event is to raise as much money as possible for Hilinski’s Hope, but they are aiming for $20,000. Kym is not able to attend the event but she will be there in spirit, along with Tyler, she said. “I loved that kid so much when he was right here next to me,” she said, “and maybe he’s not here with me physically, but I’m going to love him the same exact way as I did when he was arm and arm, walking down the street, holding my hand when he was a little 4-year-old.”

Michalkova, who played tennis at WSU from 2015-18, said the decision to partner with Hilinski’s Hope was easy. “We wanted to do something for Hilinski’s Hope because Tyler would be in class with us this year,” Michalkova said. During Friday’s event, mental skills coach Collin Henderson will be speaking about the power of self-talk and giving people in attendance tools to feel more comfortable expressing their feelings.

They are trying to save lives,” Kym said. “I don’t even think they realize what they’ve done, how much they’ve accomplished in such a short amount of time.” The campaign was launched on March 3 in honor of Tyler’s No. 3, and college teams, athletic directors and university presidents around the world have participated in the challenge. Barbora Michalkova, project manager for the challenge, said the group pitched the idea at the beginning of this semester for their capstone project in Sport Management 489.

Henderson realized he had information and skills he could share with others, so he started traveling across the country and spreading his message. But it was not easy because before Henderson became the person he is today, he struggled speaking out about his own mental health issues and being vulnerable. “I hit a stage in my life where I wasn’t very confident, and I

He said its been amazing to see what Hilinski’s Hope has done for mental health awareness over the past year, which is why he feels honored to speak at the event. “With Tyler, everybody was shocked,” he said. “Here’s a kid who looks like he has everything.

after taking down in-state rival No. 7 Oregon State 12-8 on Tuesday in Corvallis. WSU has not won a series since its first home series of the season March 8 to March 10 against California State University, Northridge. Head Coach Marty Lees said the Cougars are getting closer to where he wants them to be. “We talk about how we are just nine innings away from turning this all around,” Lees said. “We have different pieces of each game that are really good, and some that are really sloppy.” The Cougars have also lost 15 of their last 16 games. Lees said the team is doing everything they can to get out of this slump. “It’s something that our players and coaches are very aware of,” he said. “We’re working hard every day to try to clean that up.” WSU will step on BaileyBrayton Field for only the eighth time this season, after playing 23 of its 30 games so far this season on the road. The Cougars have a 3-4 home record and a 4-19 away record. “They’re not quitters,” Lees said. “Some of the box scores maybe don’t show how relentless they really are.

White said he is excited about playing at home. “It’s always fun to travel, but it’s going to be nice to be in Pullman for this one, especially with how much we’ve traveled this year,” White said. “We’re looking forward to hopefully a big crowd. I know that my family will be here for Mom’s Weekend.” Looking ahead to Oregon, White said he was aware of the talent on the team. “They have a couple guys that are out right now, but they’re playing good,” White said. “They beat Oregon State, and they’re a competitive team. We’re going to have to play the best we can to get a win.” The Ducks have four players with a batting average over .300 but they lack a dominant pitcher as each of their starters has an ERA of 3.79 or higher. First pitch is set for 5:05 p.m. Friday at Bailey-Brayton Field. The game can also be seen on the WSU live stream.

Jim Gaffigan will entertain with situational humor


Comedian Jim Gaffigan will perform for Mom’s Weekend this year at Beasley Coliseum on Saturday as a part of his “Quality Time” tour. He was supposed to perform at another Mom’s Weekend several years ago but had to cancel due to the premiere of his TV show.

Deadpan comedic talent will bring relatable jokes; arrive early to find seats, 7,000 attendees expected By Emma Ledbetter Evergreen mint editor

Award-winning comedian Jim Gaffigan will perform Saturday at Beasley Coliseum as part of his “Quality Time” tour. This performance will be one of the largest events on campus during Mom’s Weekend, with an expected attendance of about 7,000 people.

Gaffigan is known for situational humor that comments on aspects of everyday life, said Leo Udy, director of Beasley Coliseum. “[Gaffigan is] a good, clean comedian,” Udy said. “[He’s] got some good name recognition and most people know who he is.” Administrators at Beasley Coliseum have wanted to invite Gaffigan to WSU for some time

now. The comedian was scheduled to make an appearance at Mom’s Weekend several years ago but had to cancel due to a conflict with the premiere of his television show, Udy said. Gaffigan once again came up as an option for Mom’s Weekend this year, he said. Reactions on social media were positive, so Beasley administrators booked him. “I’ve never been to a comedian show, but my mom has,” said McKenzie Duquaine, a WSU freshman majoring in apparel,

merchandising, design and textiles major, who will be attending the performance with her mom. “I was kind of more hoping for a concert, so when a comedian came out, I was like ‘oh this’ll be weird,’ but I’ve heard so many good things.” Gaffigan is aware it is Mom’s Weekend and the audience will be full of parents. Gaffigan himself is the father of five children and will likely speak about his experiences. Gaffigan’s humor will definitely relate to the audience, Udy said.

“When you talk to your mom way more now than you ever did in high school, jokes like that is something that he would flourish with here,” Duquaine said. Cougs and moms interested in attending the performance can find ticket information online on the Beasley Coliseum website. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, but doors open at Beasley Coliseum at 6:30. Udy recommended attendees arrive early to find their seats.

Market will sell vintageitems Colfax Fairgrounds will hold 27 vendors from across region By Cameron Sheppard Evergreen reporter

The Route 26 Vintage Market will be held at the Palouse Empire Fairgrounds in Colfax this Mom’s Weekend. The market’s organizers, Tami Schwartz, Nancy Thorson and Debi Anderson, said the event will include 27 different vendors from communities as far away as Coeur d’Alene. The vendors will be selling items like antique furniture, vintage clothing, plants, artisan jewelry, wood workings, art and food. The event will be open on Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., as well as Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission costs $5. Schwartz said they wanted a variety of vendors at this spring’s market. “We had a vision,” Schwartz said. The organizers wanted to host

local vendors of vintage, antique and artisan items, Thorson said. “Without [the items] being crafts,” Thorson said. “It’s a fine line.” This is the fourth vintage market the trio has organized. Anderson said the market was organized because the Colfax area needed more events like this. They said they have received a lot of local support and business as they have had to move from a school gymnasium in Colfax to a larger space at the fairgrounds. “We want people to have an enjoyable experience,” Schwartz said. “Not just the shoppers, but the vendors too.” Anderson said she hopes shoppers will leave feeling like they got good deals on items. “The vendors are not here to get rich,” Anderson said. “They love what they do.” Thorson said the market will be worth the trip for moms in the area for Mom’s Weekend. The fairgrounds are located in Colfax at 310 N Main St.

The clinic provides an opportunity to talk and learn about football, meet current players and coaching staff and have a taste of what the players experience. “It is aimed at giving a chance to mingle with coaches and staff and some of our current players,” said Brittany Thackery, manager of player personnel for the team. “Each coach will have a drill station, and so once we get See Football Page B6

Bowling blowout: Monte Carlo-style


Bowling Club President Megan Wittenberg says the Monte Carlo bowling comes with possible cash prizes and is open to the public on Monday at Zeppoz.

$25 entry fee will buy ticket for event, raffle; money will fund club By George Eralil Evergreen reporter

WSU Bowling Club members will return with their biannual bowling party this weekend at Zeppoz. President Megan Wittenberg said the event will feature black light alleys, flashing lights and multicolored pins. Wittenberg said the entry fee is $25 per person and will cover two games. The event will occur from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. “It is for Mom’s Weekend, but anybody is welcome,” Wittenberg said. “It is just a chance for students, or anyone in Pullman, to come in and have fun with their family.” Certified Bowling Club Coach Ned Bowman said the games will be played in the Monte Carlo format. They will use colored pins and set them in a particular position in the deck, and whenever the bowler lands a strike, spare or split, they will receive a cash prize of up to $5 each time, he said. Wittenberg said they will also feature “Mom of the Day” prizes,

which will be given to one lucky mom. The winner will be decided through a raffle contest with tickets given to all moms upon entry. Proceeds will go toward supporting the club in future tournaments and other expenses, she said, and the club raised about $1,200 during last year’s event. “It is sort of a fundraising event for the club,” Bowman said. Wittenberg said the event, which has been going on for 8 years under Bowman’s management, was a great hit last year with an attendance of about 100 people. “There were so many people last time that we had to turn some people away,” said Wittenberg. She said interested individuals have the option to save a spot on the lane by signing up at the front desk of Zeppoz. The club’s men and women’s team has been ranked top 90 in the nation, Bowman said, and they play against some of the best collegiate teams in the U.S. The club participated in two tournaments last year in Las Vegas, Nevada and Arizona, he said, which went well. He said the women’s team bagged two first places. Zeppoz is located at 780 Bishop Blvd.

Event combines wildlife, ‘Joy of Painting’ Campus group provides Bob Ross video tutorial, breakfast for $15 ticket By Kuria Pounds Evergreen reporter

The WSU Wildlife Society will host its “Joy of Painting” event from 9-11 a.m. Saturday in the Smith Center for Undergraduate Education, Room 319. The organization will feature a silent auction, specimens of nature exhibit and an interactive painting session led by a Bob Ross video. Snacks and refreshments will also be provided. Tickets for the event will be pre-sold for $10 and $15 at the door. Julia Dahlquist, WSU senior wildlife ecology and conservation sciences major, said attendees should expect a free breakfast with pastries, juice and coffee. “We will provide paintbrushes, the canvases and paint for people to follow along with the Bob Ross video,” Dahlquist said. Eli Loftis, WSU junior wildlife ecology and conservation sciences major, said this is different from other Mom’s Weekend events because the club’s wildlife will be on display. Wildlife specimen from the Conner Museum will also be available to view. The public can see and interact with the animal specimen, like antelope, deer and wolves. “It’s more of an education-

al experience too than just an event, so they get both sides of it,” Dahlquist said. She said the fun, enjoyable and memorable event is also event is educational about the different kinds of wildlife, how one can see wildlife and the different species of animals for those who attend. “They get to actually know what we do as a society, and then, they also get to have fun while they’re doing it,” Dahlquist said. Ashley Harper, WSU senior wildlife ecology and conservation sciences major, said the society has always hosted a Mom’s Weekend event, but each one had an art theme. She said last year, their program was called “Painting Pots and Planting Memories,” and the previous year featured Mason jar painting. “We also keep it relevant to what we do with wildlife to an extent,” Harper said. She said this year the silent auction is an addition to their event because last year they put on a raffle. The prizes for the silent auction include baskets, created and provided by the society. “Usually, we do wildlife trivia, but instead, we’re doing the video tutorial,” Dahlquist said. “It’s more interactive than just guessing about it, so parents can work together to create their paintings.”

Ferdinand’s showcases famous flavor in time for Mom’s Weekend

Seasonal favorite lemon chiffon expected to bring crowds of alumni, students, moms; food supervisor says shop has best ice cream, cheese


By Naphtali Calles Evergreen reporter

erdinand’s brought out its seasonal flavor, Lemon Chiffon, just in time for Mom’s Weekend. “We bring back Lemon Chiffon because moms love Lemon Chiffon,” Ferdinand’s Food Supervisor Eric Needham said. “It is a tradition now to have it out the Monday before Mom’s Weekend.” He said moms like to go to Ferdinand’s during Mom’s Weekend because of their products. “We sell the best ice cream around and we have the best cheese too,” Needham said. “Everything

we sell, from the honey to the chocolates, are all very good quality.” Alexander Walker, sales associate at Ferdinand’s, said Mom’s Weekend gets just as busy as WSU home football games, possibly even busier. They clear out all the furniture to make room for the expected lines. Needham said moms start to come in on Thursday and continue to visit until Saturday. “I generally see moms start coming in on Thursday, Friday will be busy in the afternoon, and Saturday we are open 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and we are busy with lines out the door and onto the street,” Needham said.

Needham said this is his first year working during Mom’s Weekend. “Everyone should try it out,” he said. “Become a fan now so when you’re an alumnus you can come back.” Needham says the process of making ice cream, including Lemon Chiffon is complex. “We get the milk from the cows and put it through the pasteurizer, which heats the milk up and kills germs,” he said. “Then we put it through the homogenizers, which have rods in there to smoothen the ice cream.” Needham said the ice cream is piped into a flavor vat that is then put into the ice cream freezer. It is then stirred to

become creamier. The inclusions, such as candy, are added into the ice cream and stored in a freezer. Walker said other than the Lemon Chiffon, the two most famous flavors at Ferdinand’s are Huckleberry Ripple and Cougar Tracks. “I think we keep our prices pretty competitive when it comes to cheese and ice cream,” he said. “I know for ice cream we sell tons of it to students and you get a pretty good serving for only $2.35.” Walker said Ferdinand’s gets alumni who attended WSU when it was called WSC before it was an established university. “It’s so cool when we get older alumni who come down and they tell me they remember when Ferdinand’s was in Troy Hall,” he said. Needham said lines are expected to be exceptionally long after 11 a.m. Saturday.

Hospitality group will take moms on tour of best wineries in state Tickets cost $60 per person at door, includes wine glass, buffet, tastings By Chris West Evergreen reporter

WSU Sigma Iota will hold its 35th annual Winefest during Mom’s Weekend in the Marriott Foundation Hospitality Teaching Center in Todd Addition. The event will be held in two sessions, both on April 12, with the first from 5-7 p.m. and the second from 8-10 p.m. This Mom’s Weekend staple is the sister event to Brewfest, which is held during Dad’s Weekend. “The original intention of this event was to give our hospitality students something fun to do with their moms,” said Jennifer Sandstrom, the faculty adviser of Sigma Iota. “To have our parents in [the teaching center], to be able to showcase the culinary side of our program and to highlight the student centeredness is awesome to me.” This year’s event will highlight the flavors from great wineries around Washington. The wineries include local favorite Merry Cellars from Pullman, Siren Song Vineyard Estate from Lake Chelan, Amavi Cellars and Basel Cellars from Walla Walla,

One Tree Cider House from Spokane, as well as many others. “We try to target different wineries from around the Pacific Northwest,” said Winefest event coordinator Spenser Peery, who is also a senior strategic communication major. “A lot of them are from around the area, and all of them are from Washington state this year.” Peery said Sigma Iota promotes student work at its events. For the food-pairing portion of the event, the hospitality school catering company will cater it. All club members have helped in the kitchen throughout the week as well, Peery said. A live band from the School of Music will perform. “So we’re incorporating other student groups from campus,” Peery said. “A lot of the different hospitality clubs are helping out with it for decorations and catering.” The cost for registering online is $50 per person, and tickets will be available at will call, or tickets can be purchased at the door for $60 per person. The price includes a buffet catered by the hospitality team, a commemorative wine glass JOSEPH GARDNER | THE DAILY EVERGREEN that you get to keep and ten tickets to taste among the many White wine fills a Valhalla Wine Festival glass on Tuesday at Valhalla Bar and Grill. Spenser Peery says the annual Winefest vintners available. combines several hospitality groups on campus, which helps these students get more experience in their field.

The Abelson Hall Greenhouse is filled with a variety of plants from all over the world, and each with distinctive personalities. The plants can be seen during the scheduled open house between 2-5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Chuck Cody, Plant Growth Facilities Manager for the School of Biological Sciences, said Mom’s Weekend is a great time to relax and learn about the plants in the greenhouse. “It’s a pleasant environment, it’s a great place to come to,” Cody said. “It’s warm, sunny and green,”

Madison Lucas, a greenhouse employee and senior chemistry major, said she could stay in the greenhouse for years. She has worked at at the greenhouse for about two years. She said the succulents, cacti, ferns and orchids are a few plants that capture the majority of attention during Mom’s Weekend. “Everything is worth looking at,” Lucas said. “You could come here 10 times and still find new plants.” Cody said the greenhouse offers a tropical collection of plants, which is always open and located on the seventh floor of Abelson Hall. Some students who had classes in the greenhouse before know it is always open, he said, and will bring their families before the official open house starts. Cody said the greenhouse has held open house events every Mom’s Weekend since 1986.

During last year’s Mom’s Weekend, about 500 people visited the greenhouse on Saturday alone, he said. Cody said families will look around the greenhouse, and he would answer questions they have about any of the plants. He said he gets more questions about gardening than the greenhouse plants itself. “I feel like an extension agent,” he said with a hearty laugh. “I’m answering all these gardening questions, which is fine. I enjoy doing that too.” The sensitive plant is a perennial favorite among visitors, Cody said. The leaves close and shrink when touched. The lighter leaves on the tips tend to be more reactive to touch than the older leaves. Lucas said the Vinca rosea, also called the Madagascar periwinkle, a plant with white and pink flowers, serves as a medicinal herb. She said that although plants are pretty to look at, they also hold secrets that are interesting to learn about.

Sanctuary Yoga offers free yoga, specialty smoothies for moms Main Street Squeeze helps for third time, will make smoothies By Lauren Ellenbecker Evergreen reporter

Moms have the opportunity to attend free yoga classes and have a complimentary brunch with their child during Mom’s Weekend. Judy Kolde, owner of Sanctuary Yoga in downtown Pullman, said she expects hundreds of people to attend their free yoga classes throughout the weekend, as well as the main bash on Saturday. This is the sixth year Sanctuary Yoga will host a Mom’s Weekend event. “It’s a great way to say thank you to the community and celebrate moms,” Kolde said. The festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. Friday with “Vino and Vinyasa,” where moms can drink a free glass of wine after a yoga class. The main event will begin at 8 a.m. and lasts until 3 p.m. on Saturday. The event will begin with a free self-serve waffle bar from Main Street Squeeze. The first 50 visitors can receive a free cupcake from Sweetest Crumbs. Sanctuary will offer complimentary mimosas and flavored prosecco, Kolde said.

There will be hot yoga, barre and yin classes. Yoga classes are free for moms, and their child can get a 15 percent student discount off Sanctuary Yoga packages. “We’re a healthy lifestyle place and … it’s a great activity to do with your mom, [with] no experience necessary,” Kolde said. “If they just want to shop, that’s OK too.” Destiny Sternod, owner of Main Street Squeeze, said they


Sales associate Alexander Walker shares the plans to remain open for Mom’s Weekend as well as serving a very popular lemon flavor of ice cream that is loved by both moms and students Tuesday morning at the Ferdinand’s Ice Cream production observation room.

She said they will also sell original acai and avocado toast products. This is the third year Main Street Squeeze has participated in Mom’s Weekend. Sternod said the store began as a popup and tested recipes during one of Sanctuary Yoga’s bashes. “Sanctuary offers the chance for small businesses to get out into the public and test things out like I did three years ago,” she said. “It’s a great opportunity for vendors to get started.”

Sanctuary Yoga’s bash will include vendors from the community, such as Sweetest Crumbs, Beautycounter and Rya Ramsay Designs. Sternod said there will be social media giveaways leading up to the event, and they will end on Saturday. The prizes given away from vendors include gift cards, a three-tier cake and a free necklace. Kolde said there will be a trunk show where they will rotate clothing brands every

hour and offer a promotion. The deals will be updated on their social media. She said the event is supposed to celebrate moms and show gratitude for them. It is a good opportunity for students to show their mom where they hang out when they are away from home, Kolde said. “We call it Sanctuary for a reason, it’s like a home away from home for a lot of students,” Kolde said. “It’s a supportive yoga environment.”

Football | Continued from Page B2 to the field it will be fun drills to show the moms basic skills.” The event this year is one of their biggest years yet and more moms showed interest than ever before, Thackery said. A few of the most popular stations are the touchdown dance station, the field goal station and the tackling station. “We give them a little bit of a

chalk talk, offense, defense and special teams, showing them some plays,” said Dave Nichol, the inside receiver coach. “It is kind of a question and answer session. They get to have the feeling of running out of the tunnel.” Players from the WSU football team will be making appearances, some with moms coming up for the weekend to join them.

They will help with the various stations, teaching anyone who wants to learn the basics of the skills they use. “We have a good chunk of our roster coming,” Thackery said. “The guys even if they don’t have a mom coming up for the weekend still love to be out there.” The players will be available to answer questions from par-

ticipants. “The players are always really fired up about all the questions, some of them are about to get drafted,” Nichol said. “It is really fun to appreciate their support, they are all just inquisitive, and we do the best to answer their questions.” The event begins at 4:30 p.m. today in the club level of the

press box in Martin Stadium. “It is just about having fun, I know that some moms sign up but don’t want to do the on-field drills, which is fine,” Thackery said. “It is just mainly to get connected, learn more about football, meet some of the players, just a laid-back relaxed way to enjoy football.

‘Happy festival’ features Samoan dance, culture Club to host annual event showcasing food from variety of Pacific islands By Mila Widmayer Evergreen reporter

WSU Mitamitaga O Samoa (MOS) is hosting their 7th annual Fiafia Festival on Saturday at noon in the CUB Senior Ballroom 220. Their event will last four hours and will feature food, fun and dances from a multitude of the Pacific Islands. “Fiafia is Samoan for ‘happy’, so it’s a play on words for a happy festival,” said Pesi Taototo, the treasurer for the group. “The main point of Fiafia is to promote our culture to the WSU community.” The club holds the festival annually during Mom’s Weekend and it originally took place in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. As it became more popular since 2013, the Fiafia festival is now been known to draw in sold-out crowds, filling rooms with a capacity for over 500 people. “You should buy your tickets as soon as possible if you are planning on attending,” said Kamu Taulelei, the president of Mitamitaga O Samoa. “We’re expecting to sell out the event before doors open Sunday.” Since winning the 2018 WSU Office of Student Involvement award for outstanding cultural

registered student organization of the year, MOS has been working to maintain a higher standard of integrity. “We’ve been practicing our dances for the Fiafia festival since the beginning of the semester,” Taototo said. “The past few weeks we’ve been practicing every day for hours.” One of the main reasons why the MOS established itself as a recognized organization on campus was to help Samoan people at WSU feel welcome. With the Samoan population at WSU being comparatively small, the Fiafia festival is a great opportunity to show off culture, music, dances and traditions with others in the Palouse. “You end up finding out there’s a lot more Samoan people here at WSU than you thought,” Taulelei said. “You see someone you’ve never seen before show up and it brings that sense of happiness knowing that someone was looking for that certain community that we provided.” Tickets can be found online through the MOS Facebook page, or contact for more information on their CashApp and Venmo accounts. Student tickets are $14, non-student tickets are $18 and children under four get in for free. “There’s a Samoan quote that translates to ‘we may be small, but our impact can be big,” said Taototo.

Raptor club to host silent auction with birds of prey Visitors can donate, meet 12 avians like golden eagle Amicus By Cheryl Aarnio Evergreen reporter

Students and moms will have the opportunity to see birds of prey and bid on items at the Raptor Club’s silent auction this weekend. The auction will occur from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the WSU Animal Disease Biotech Facility, Room 1002, said Mia Gleason, Raptor Club’s public

relations officer. Anyone can go to the free event. People who just want to see the birds are welcome, too, Gleason said. The Raptor Club is made up of volunteers who are at least 18 years old that handle and feed its 12 raptors. She said they bring some of their birds to about 70 educational programs yearly for schools, fairs and events. The birds will be at the auction for people to look at and ask questions about, Raptor Club Member Nichole Lique said. See Auction Page B7



FRIDAY, APRIL 12, 2019 | PAGE B7

Auction | Continued from Page B6 Gleason said Amicus, a golden eagle, is one bird only certain Raptor Club members have the opportunity to handle. Amicus is 13 years old with a 6-foot wingspan, which is the largest wingspan of any of the birds the Raptor Club has. Amicus is blind, likely due to lead

poisoning, but they are not sure, Lique said. Gleason said some other birds at the auction will be red-tailed hawks Dakota and Brenda; a snowy owl, Tundra; and a great gray owl, Gus. Some items people can bid on are artwork that has been donat-

ed from galleries, gift certificates to restaurants, home decor, club merchandise, gift cards and suitcases, she said. Additionally, there will be a photograph signed by Head Football Coach Mike Leach that shows Widget, one of the club’s barn owls, on a Cougar football

helmet, Gleason said. If someone does not wish to bid on something, they can choose to donate money to the club, Gleason said. The Raptor Club has fundraised this way for a number of years, and the auction is its main source of money, Lique said.

The money from the auction goes toward medical bills for the birds, bills for upkeep for the WSU Stauber Raptor Facility and food for the birds, Gleason said. “[People] can expect to be educated,” she said, “and they can expect to give money to a great cause.”

Students exhibit designs in annual fashion show Event theme is ‘emerge,’ clothing inspired by philosophy, death By Trinity Pierce Evergreen reporter

The 36th annual Mom’s Weekend Fashion Show will premiere at 6 p.m. Friday in Beasley Coliseum. Tickets bought in advance cost $15, while tickets bought at the door cost $20. There will also be a beer and wine garden hosted from 5:00 to 5:45 p.m. before the show. The theme for this year’s fashion show is “Emerge.” According to Katie Ellis, one of the senior designers for the show, they searched for a long time for the perfect word to describe the show. After much deliberation, they settled on “Emerge” because they felt it personified what they, as new designers, were trying to do.

‘Emerge’ means to me finally coming out of my own skin

Madison Norman senior designer

“We are trying to emerge into the fashion industry,” Ellis said. “We are trying to make a mark on our years here, and we’re really trying to go above and beyond what our hopes and dreams are.” Madison Norman, another senior designer, said the word also felt personal to her own experiences. “ ‘Emerge’ means to me finally coming out of my own skin and figuring out who I am,” Norman said. However, to the senior designers, the theme isn’t the most important part; rather, the line of clothing that they’ve designed speaks truer to their personality

and philosophies. In the case of Norman, she has taken some personal philosophy and translated it into her designs. For the show, her clothes are inspired by “Danse Macabre,” or the “Dance of Death,” a philosophy that focused on the universal reality of death regardless of gender, religion, sexual orientation or ethnicity. Norman loves a bit of drama in her designs. “My passion and kind of craziness — I think that’s what translates to my designs is just my theatrical side. I want to go into haute couture, which is more art over fashion,” Norman said. “I just want people, when they do wear my clothing, to feel the best that they’ve ever felt.” Meanwhile, the major inspiration for Ellis’ designs in the show came from her experience studying abroad in London, U.K. While she was there, she fell in love with the architecture. In particular, she developed a fondness for St. Paul’s Cathedral. “Seeing the beautiful artwork of the sculptures, and the ceiling, and so much gilded gold and [it was] just so luxurious and beautiful,” Ellis said. “That was why I decided to name my collection ‘The Cathedral’ and really try and use that gilded gold aspect [and] beautiful elegance in my designs.” For undergraduates interested in participating in a later Mom’s Weekend Fashion Show, Ellis has three tips. Her first tip was to start as soon as possible. “Get your swatches way early on, do that like first semester,” Ellis said. Her second tip was to just start writing designs down instead of worrying about the specifics. “My last one would be you do spend all night here [Johnson Hall, Room 113], you don’t go to bed sometimes. So, get an espresso machine!” Ellis said.
