Two veterinarians start mobile clinic Local Red Barn Mobile Veterinary Services is available 24/7 By Loren Negron Evergreen reporter

Two veterinarians who grew up out-of-state fell in love with the local community and started a business that provides on the road services 24/7 for both large and small animals. Red Barn Mobile Veterinary Services was launched in August by co-owners Dr. Kathryn Kammerer and Dr. Tasha Bradley. The name of the business was inspired by the different red barns in the Palouse. Kammerer graduated from WSU in May 2019 with a doctorate in veterinary medicine. She grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, and worked as a small animal veterinary nurse for VCA Cottonwood Animal Hospital for about 10 years. She also volunteered at Wasatch Veterinary, which is a mobile clinic. Bradley interned with the WSU Animal Disease Biotech Facility. She is from Lake District, England. After graduating in 2017 from the University of Nottingham in England, she moved to the Palouse for a farm

Veterinarian Kathryn Kammerer, left, and veterinary assistant Tasha Bradley demonstrate how they perform dog examinations with Sienna, a Red Heeler mix, on Tuesday at Kammerer’s home. for small and large animals, Kammerer said. They want to treat animals where they are most comfortable. This helps alleviate the stress on the animal and the owner. “I think there is a huge need for a mobile service— the vets going to the farm, the ranch or

the stables—because loading a sick animal into a trailer can be really stressful for both the animal and the owner,” she said. Kammerer said their service emphasizes compassion and honesty. They want the experience to be positive for the animal and the client. They also

keep their prices competitive. A 10 percent discount is given to college students, senior citizens and ex-military individuals. The service covers a 100mile radius within the PullmanMoscow area and runs 24/7, Bradley said. Their Red Barn Mobile truck has a variety of

tools including a refrigerator, a heater and medical supplies. Kammerer said they provide a variety of services including blood work, ultrasounds, vaccines and behavior consults. They do not perform surgeries See Clinic Page 12

Library offers coding classes for young girls interested in STEM Course curriculum will focus on fundamentals of computer science By Cheryl Aarnio Evergreen reporter

A six-week course in the Neill Public Library Edith G. Hecht Meeting Room will teach the basics of coding to girls in third through fifth grade. The course will be taught using a curriculum from Girls Who Code, a national organization that works to teach girls computing skills, said Rachael Ritter, Neill Public Library youth services technician. Helen Catanese, a computer science graduate student, will teach the course. The class will take place on Tuesdays, Nov. 5, 12 and 19 and Dec. 3, 10 and 17, Ritter said. Girls with no coding experience can sign up for the free class, she said. It is limited to 15 girls, and pre-registration is necessary. “It’s going to focus on the very basic, most fundamental aspects of computer science,” Catanese said. She said she will teach the history of computer science and why it is such an important field. She will also teach the girls how to write basic code. The girls will also learn debugging, which involves strat-

egies to figure out what is not working in the code, she said. In the last two weeks of the course, the girls will be able to do mini projects, one of which is creating an app, Catanese said. The course will follow exercises in a programming website called Scratch, which is run through MIT, she said. Ritter said that a course like this where girls can learn to code is important because there are not a lot of women who go into careers in STEM fields. If girls can gain confidence in their STEM abilities at a young age, they will be more comfortable pursuing those opportunities later on, Ritter said. Isla Funke, 9, who has registered for the course, said she is looking forward to it because she is interested in engineering and robotics. She has done some coding through school and also received a Lego Boost Creative Toolbox, so she was able to build a robot and code it. Another student registered in the course, Lucy Sandberg, 9, said she has also done some coding in school, where she learned that she likes to code. Catanese said that one of the reasons Girls Who Code courses start with upper elementary school children is because there have been studies that show that girls in middle school tend to become uninterested in topics such as math and programming.


Youth Services Technician Rachael Ritter discusses the reasons for setting up a class for girls to learn coding programs on Friday afternoon at the Neill Public Library. “It’s trying to reach those girls before that happens so that they have a stronger foundation to build interest in these topics throughout their lives,” she said.

Catanese said she has taught college students computer science and also tutors them, but this is the first time she will teach elementary school stu-

dents the topic. If the program goes well, the Neill Public Library may host another Girls Who Code course, Ritter said.

Polls for pet photo contest close Saturday Cute Halloween-themed pet pictures can win $50 certificate to local salon By Emma Ledbetter Evergreen reporter

Amber’s Grooming Salon is getting in the Halloween spirit this week with its seventh annual Halloween pet photo contest. Participants have until Friday at 11 a.m. to submit their Halloween or fall-themed photos online. Each entry will then be posted on the Facebook event page, where people have until Saturday at 11 a.m. to vote for their favorite photos with a like. Salon owner Amber Wright said participants are welcome to share their photos, once they are posted

to the event page, to their personal account to get more likes. The pet photo with the most likes will win a $50 gift certificate to the salon. Everyone who enters will receive a free-with-purchase blueberry facial for their pet, Wright said. Wright said the contest started the first year she was in business when a client brought in a picture of their dog in a costume next to a pumpkin. “It kind of gave me this idea to get pictures, because I think they’re really fun to look at,” Wright said. “It was just that one first photo that started the whole photo contest.” Wright said she mainly received entries from her clients the first few years of the contest, but now receives photos from other community members

and entrants as far away as Spokane. “We want to [get our name out] in a fun way that everybody can enjoy,” head groomer Alix Shackelford said. The salon has a Halloween photo backdrop where clients can take pictures of their pets after they get groomed, Shackelford said. Wright said the salon also puts on a similar contest in December for holiday photos. The event page for this next contest will open toward the beginning of December, she said. “I think it’s really fun to see people sharing it with their friends and getting excited about it,” Wright said. “We really appreciate that [our clients] enjoy doing these kinds of things with us … It makes me feel like we’re a lot more connected than just providing a service.”

Hack A House event to lower cost of living WSU hosts 24-hour event with $5,000 in cash prizes; open to all majors By Madysen McLain Evergreen reporter

Students have the chance to find real solutions for housing and even win some cash at the first WSU Hack A House competition this weekend. The event focuses on affordable housing in the Pacific Northwest. Ryan Smith, WSU School of Design and Construction director, said the Hack A House competition gives students 24 hours to come up with a prize-winning idea. The idea will be judged by professionals in the industry of design, construction and more. “They can be a part of the solution, opposed to part of the problem,” Smith said. The competition is open to all students of any major, even those at the University of Idaho, he said. People can sign up in groups or are assigned to groups on the day of. A total of $5,000 in cash prizes is available for first, second and third places in the competition. Smith said the second and third place prizes include gift cards to the bookie. In addition, the first-place team will receive a trip to the Hive Conference, a national housing conference in Austin, Texas during December. “The Hive Conference brings folks together in academics and the industry to try to find solutions about how to solve affordable housing,” he said. Ideas can come from a standpoint of design, construction, finances, policy or any area that might be of interest, Smith said. Students can come up with solutions that either reduce

the cost of housing or increase the revenue stream so people can afford better housing through different mechanisms, he said. The competition is free to register for. Those interested can sign up at Three meals will be provided: dinner, breakfast and lunch, Smith said. Four professionals in the industry will also speak at the event, he said. Speakers include Kate Burke, Spokane City Council member, Robert Humble, cofounder of Hybrid Architecture, Matthew Collins, Uptic Studios principal architect and Jennifer Wallace, Palouse Habitat for Humanity director. Smith said student ideas will be judged by six experts in the industry, including Robert Humble, Jennifer Wallace, Kate Burke, Randall Teal, University of Idaho architecture program head, Mohammadsoroush Tafazzoli, WSU School of Design and Construction assistant professor, and John Morefield, Jackson Main Architecture architect. The competition first started at the University of Utah two years ago and Ivory Innovations sponsored the event. The company is an innovation center in connection to Ivory Homes that is committed to developing housing solutions, Smith said. This year, WSU and the University of California, Berkeley will host Hack A House competitions, he said. The competition is from 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 1 to 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 2 at Carpenter Hall on the WSU campus. “We are hoping students can help find solutions not only when they are professionals but also when they are in school,” Smith said.


“We are hoping students can help find solutions not only when they are professionals but also when they are in school,” Ryan Smith, WSU School of Design and Construction director, said.

‘You don’t want to go alone’

‘Roamer’ resident volunteered at seasonal haunted house By Rachel K Evergreen reporter


or the two weekends leading up to Halloween, the volunteers of Haunted Palouse have worked to frighten visitors to the town of Palouse. This haunted attraction consisted of three venues located throughout the town: the print museum, the fire station and a historic trail. Those who worked at Haunted Palouse were all volunteers. They filled a variety of roles such as selling or collecting tickets, selling treats or dressing up in costume and scaring attendees. Pullman resident Eric Loz was a Roamer. His job was to frighten people while they waited in line for one of the haunted houses. “I was told by a lot of people and from other scarers that I had the best costume and was doing the best job,” Loz said. This was Loz’s second year volunteering for Haunted Palouse, and he has enjoyed the experience for both years, he COURTESY OF ERIC LOZ

Officers will stay close for quick responses, says Pullman PD commander By Callahan Hudson Evergreen reporter

Scary masks and revealing costumes come in full swing, but eating too much candy isn’t the only harm that can happen during Halloween in Pullman. Halloweek began last Thursday and has continued to provide fun and frights as people go out wearing their collegebudget-friendly DIY costumes. The Pullman Police Department is on high alert during this Halloweek. Pullman PD Cmdr. Jake Opgenorth said the department has increased staffing during these nights, especially

Halloween day. The police are aiming to have more officers readily available to respond to calls in higher risk areas, Opgenorth said. “We will be patrolling the busier areas in neighborhoods where kids trick or treat,” he said. “Then move to where the late night Halloween parties are.” Opgenorth said typical Halloween crimes such as minor vandalism and teens “TP-ing” people’s houses are expected to occur. He said drinkingrelated incidents, such as fights and noise complaints from Halloween parties are also expected. The Pullman Police force will also be heavily patrolling neighborhoods in the earlier hours of Halloween to make a See Crime Page 10

Killer horror movies to binge this weekend

Students weigh in on which films will provide most entertainment By Rachel Koch Evergreen columnist



Bjorn Elliott, senior business managment and international business major, lists his favorite scary movies that he watched and rated them from best to worst Oct. 23 at The SPARK: Academic Innovation Hub.

oliday films go beyond those most commonly associated with December. With the weather growing colder and the holiday being just around the corner, many students, such as those in the Wazzu Films club, have a set movie watchlist specific to the season. Club President Alex Welch suggests that Halloween and horror movie lovers look to the classics, he said. He then listed the original “Dracula” movie starring Bela Lugosi as an example. “Those ones, I think, really helped expand horror,” Welch said. “A lot of those old ones were the first, at least for the horror genre to actually pull from.” Iconic movie monsters such as See Movies Page 10

f all the holidays, there are few better to show your adulthood and disappoint your parents than Halloween. And you can do that by getting drunk, partying too hard, or just existing, but what better way is there than just putting on a sexy costume? Nowadays there are a lot of options for those who want to steam up their Halloween. From sexy pumpkin to sexy ebola nurse there is no limit to the depravity you can cook up. However, this also means the unbeknownst may be at risk for choosing a poor costume. A poor costume means a poor Halloween. You have one night to get this right. Here we will look at some scorching hot Halloween costumes and explain if they hold up or not. Also, all costumes apply for any and all genders. The only limit, like everything else in life, is how much shame you feel.

Why not be a sexy goldfish? A sexy turtle? I mean, did you miss when I mentioned the sexy ebola nurse? You can turn anything into a skeevy costume. Creativity is sexy too. We’re going to have to do better than this. Sexy Can of Red Bull (or energy drink of your choice) Now we’re getting somewhere. Is there anything else that says “all-nighter” like this? I don’t think Halloween, I think “Damn, I should’ve worked on my essay last week instead of the day before it’s due.” And procrastination is incredibly sexy to college students but I don’t know how to make that a costume. Note that you can be any energy drink or caffeinated beverage. I’d recommend leaning in on the energy part to induce stress in your colleagues. There’s a difference between a Reign energy drink and a Starbucks coffee. This one loses points though because you’re probably going to remind people that they should be studying. Then you’ll make them feel bad when they keep partying anyway. Sexy Failing College Student

This costume is always nice because you can literally just dress up as you are. Sometimes it helps to carry around your transcript, but let’s be honest, we could already tell. If you aren’t on the verge of dropping out right now then first of all, must be nice, and Sexy Cat/Bunny Costume second, this definitely leans more toward a Wow. How long did it take you to come costume than a depressing reality, but you could tweak it to be “sexy struggling college up with this burst of originality? student,” or “sexy and horribly stressed-out These costumes are staples of Halloween, and they’re OK, I guess. As long college student.” as you’re fine with being basic and boring See Sexy Page 10 and unoriginal.

Police calls rise during Halloween Costumes make it hard for officers to identify possible suspects By Jayce Carral Evergreen reporter

The number of police calls rises during Halloween and the presence of costumes can lead to memorability and confusion for the Pullman Police Department and the WSU Police Department. Pullman PD Cmdr. Jake Opgenorth said the department prepares for a higher volume of calls. He said more officers are patrolling during each shift. There were 50 calls on Oct. 31, 2018, 49 calls in 2017 and 43 calls in 2016, according to the Pullman Police Logs. Opgenorth said officers patrol residential neighborhoods during early afternoon on Halloween. He said officers watch traffic and make sure children are trick-or-treating safely. During Halloween night, officers will patrol high activity areas. He said Halloween parties are often the source of noise complaints and other incidents. Two arrests were made on Oct. 31, 2018, according to the logs. Four calls were made for noise complaints and disorderly conduct. Officers responded to two car accidents, one of which was a hit and run, according to the logs. Five noise complaints were made on Oct. 31, 2017, according to the logs. Three arrests were made. Two car accidents occurred. Officers also responded to a call of disorderly conduct incident where 12 people were about to fight, according to the log. From Oct. 31, 2016 to 1 a.m. on Nov. 1, nine parking related calls were made, according to the log. Five arrests were made, some of which were because of alcohol offenses.


Pullman Police Department Cmdr. Jake Opgenorth said a DUI accident was allegedly caused by a man dressed as Superman. He said a bystander dressed as a mummy helped administer first aid to the injured victims. Two noise complaints and three incidents of malicious mischief were reported, according to the logs. Officers and the Pullman Fire Department responded to a report of a possible fire. There was also one report for public urination just after midnight on Nov. 1. Steve Hansen, WSU PD assistant chief, said the department increases patrol around residence halls and WSU apartment complexes. He said the increase in patrolling helps officers ensure the safety of people walking to

and from the residence halls. He said it is common to have people who drank too much alcohol walk back to their residence from a party. “We just want to make sure people have a safe event and drink responsibly,” he said. Opgenorth said Halloween nights are similar to home football games. “We’re dealing with the same situations, but people are dressed up in their Halloween costumes,” he said. “It’s a little bit more memorable.” Opgenorth said he

responded to a DUI accident and the driver who had allegedly caused the accident was dressed as Superman. “There was a person injured in the car, and a [bystander] that was dressed up as a mummy came up to help provide first aid,” he said. “That was kinda ironic since [the bystander] was covered in bandages.” Opgenorth said another officer responded to a similar incident where some of the passengers involved were thrown from the car during the crash. He said it was a bad

accident. “Officers arrived and [the passengers] were laying outside of the car. They were struggling to get up and they were dressed up as zombies,” he said. “Here are these people outside of the car, and suddenly they are rising from the ground like zombies.” Hansen said the description provided by reporting parties are funny because people are wearing costumes. He said this can also lead to some confusion for the responding See Police Calls Page 10

‘There goes my childhood:’ Rocky Horror edition While dressed as a slutty forest spirit. In front of the mostly full, 330-seat Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre in Moscow. It was the 11:59 p.m. showBy Anna Young ust after midnight ing of “The Rocky Horror Evergreen Saturday, I had to columnist Picture Show,” and my third pretend to orgasm time going. I should have as Rapunzel from Disney’s “Tangled.” Into a microphone. expected as much, but I’d never participated in the costume contest before. And when host drag queen Aquasha DeLusty asked me which Disney character I liked best, of course I went and picked the most innocent one in the canon. Between the five contest finalists, we had to listen to Mickey Mouse, Mulan, the Genie and Ursula all, erm … find the magic. Mickey Mouse, performed by a young man dressed as Freddie Mercuryslash-Rocky, won out. He did the voice a little too well. “There goes my childhood,” someone in a row near the front called out. The audience laughed and whooped in agreement. Here’s the thing about “Rocky Horror” at the Kenworthy: it’s a community endeavor. Defeated by a worthy opponent, I gave Freddie a high-five before heading back to my seat for the movie (actually, he almost left me hanging RACHEL SUN | THE DAILY EVERGREEN — how humiliating would that Moscow resident Sky Ting says they idenitfy with the have been? In front of all those people!). Disney character Mulan and the song “Reflection.”

Writer attended iconic queer cult classic that resonates with people who feel like a freak


Ever since I lost my “Rocky Horror” virginity as a freshman in 2017, the show has been a once-a-year step into the spunky and scandalous. Heckling the onscreen characters, cheering for Tim Curry — the original film’s Frank-NFurter — and some local actor stepping into the light in a corset and fishnets — it’s not something you do every day. The shadow cast, too, always puts on a show for the ages. For others, though, the show means a little more. Before gasping out the words “Make a man out of me!” for the acting portion of the costume contest, Moscow resident Sky Ting explained why they chose Mulan as their favorite Disney character. “[The song ‘Reflection’] is something I’ve identified with again and again,” said Ting, dressed as a “Boujee Pumpkin” in orange mesh and a fur coat. “What is my identity? How will I recognize myself?” Ting, who identifies as genderqueer and has Chinese heritage, said they performed in the “Rocky Horror” shadow cast with a friend last year after moving back to Moscow from Seattle. They said being in the show helped them find queer culture in Moscow. Standing in the rice-covered aisle after the show, Ting was joined by Diamond Fields, their partner of almost two

years. Fields, marked with the customary red V of virgin attendees, said “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” holds a certain meaning for both of them as members of the genderqueer community. “[I like] all the gayness,” Fields said. “And the tights — awesome. I like bounds to be broken.” And that’s exactly what “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” does. Despite being an objectively bad movie, the zany characters and “who gives a f-ck” attitude has resonated with people of all kinds for decades. It’s empowering in many senses. Never in my reserved, taciturn life would I have imagined I might stand in front of a few hundred strangers and moan in a frankly horrifying way — I mean, come on. I fell in love with “Tangled” when I watched it for the first time at age 12. That’s the power of the show, though. I felt emboldened, if not quite comfortable, by the unabashed cheers of people I’ve never met and likely never will. For Ting, the show provides them a chance to be, in their words, a “queerdo.” “The show is a nice reminder that there is a community for that,” Ting said. “It’s a nice chance for me to be a freak.”

Frankenstein-esque monsters at WSU Body parts are stitched, glued and duct-taped together to form beast By Jacob Hersh Evergreen columnist


flash of lightning, a flip of a switch, a hum and a buzz of electricity and suddenly, the stitchedtogether corpse on the table springs to life with a guttural moan. It reaches for terrified onlookers with stiff fingers, as the cackling mad scientist in the corner screeches, “It’s ALIIIIIIVVVEEEEEE!” A scene from the latest remake of Frankenstein, or one of the WSU Biological Science Department’s latest experiments in abnormal biology? You’d be surprised to learn that, as of the 2019 fall semester, a sizable grant was donated (by a source who wished to be identified only as B. Karloff) to the WSU biology program, on one condition: that the biology department immediately begin training select students in the little-known art of reanimation. “It’s one of the lesser-known facets of the various medical sciences,” said Nick Romancer, a WSU professor of postmortem reanimation, with a master’s degree in Playing God. “People tend to gloss over reanimation whenever they’re talking about the different ways you can apply biology to real life. It’s like, just because we’re disgraced scientists who corrupt and abuse the forces of nature in strange and twisted ways, our field of study suddenly doesn’t matter.” However, human reanima-

The conditions of the grant include training students in the art of reanimation which is a medical science, says Nick Romancer. tion as an art is finely detailed, with numerous years of study and practice needed to achieve perfection. Mary Shelley, a WSU professor of Extremely F-cked Up Science Magic, explained the process to me. “As a general rule, we collect recently deceased human body parts from graveya-- uh,

from ethical and legal sources as per Washington state law,” Shelley said. “Those body parts are then stitched, glued and sometimes duct-taped together in the form of a person- three hands, two legs, an undisclosed number of feet, the works.” The reanimator then

applies a significant amount of electricity to the corpse at specific intervals, which acts as a catalyst for the reanimation process. “Yeah, we used to use lightning back in the day, I guess,” Shelley said, drinking from a large bottle filled with a mysterious red liquid.

(When asked about what she was drinking, Shelley paused for an uncomfortably long period of time, then said “Tea,” and abruptly changed the subject.) “But lightning’s such a pain in the ass, you know?” she said. See Frankenstein Page 10

Safari Pearl offers costumes, makeup, dog petting Owner says costumes turn fantasy into reality By Jakob Thorington Evergreen reporter

From restaurant management to selling comic books and board games then to selling pantyhose, Katherine Sprague has done it all. Costumes were not always the original intention for Safari Pearl until store owners Sprague and Tabitha Simmons coordinated with an adult store to sell them, Sprague said. The store initially sold only comic books and board games before adding costumes. Sprague said she was baffled after going to an adult trade show and speaking to costume companies about getting into the costume industry. “Sexy costumes were just taking off, and we were selling 200-300 pairs of fishnet pantyhose at Halloween,” she said. That experience at the trade show led her and Simmons, her wife, to place orders for Halloween costumes. “It’s just been a strange and organic growth,” Sprague said. “Here we are 31 years later.” The store fills a need in the Palouse for costumes sold throughout the year as it is the only shop in a 200-mile radius that sells Ben Nye theatrical makeup, Sprague said. Ben Nye is a company that sells makeup for use in the film and theater industries.

Sprague said she has had customers from Spokane theaters coming in to buy makeup. Drag queens, drag kings and cosplayers shop at the store all year round. The two owners’ company, Tabikat Productions, runs a monthly drag show throughout the Pacific Northwest. “The costumes are actually growing in importance,” she said. About four years ago, decade-old costume shops in Spokane and Boise closed because temporary stores like Spirit Halloween have changed the market, Sprague said. She said local-owned stores like hers are a rarity that need community support. “If you need that tutu in July, that store is gone,” she said. Local stores add jobs and diversity and often donate to local organizations, Sprague said. Simmons and Sprague are involved in local nonprofits like Inland Oasis and the Humane Society of the Palouse. Aside from Simmons, Sprague and employees of the store, regular faces in the store are the owners’ dog Elise and two cats Athena and Ares. Elise spends the day wandering the store with a ball, looking for customers to play fetch with. “Elise is our best employee,” Sprague said. “Elise has a lot of fans.” Simmons made a business card for Sprague with the title of Duck Wrangler. Sprague


Safari Pearl owner Katherine Sprague laughs at a story she remembers when she first opened up her store which sold comic books on Oct. 22 at Safari Pearl. said she picked up that position after chasing down one of the couple’s ducks on icy conditions earlier this year. She slipped and broke her ankle but caught the duck and flew down to New Orleans three days later to order costumes from a distributor, she said. “I didn’t even clue in when the radiologist said, ‘No, really, you should ride in the wheelchair back to the exam room,’” she said. Simmons said owning a business with her wife is and is

not a dream come true. “It makes a lot of things easier to negotiate because we know each other so well,” Simmons said. “Some things require even more negotiation.” Simmons said her favorite part of selling costumes is seeing the look in a customer’s eye when she can help someone turn a fantasy into a reality. “It is gratifying. We can help develop a community for people to feel welcomed and respected in,” Simmons said. Store associate Michelle Winn said Simmons and Sprague

created an environment where people, including herself, can feel like a family. “We sell fun,” Winn said. Sprague said the store hosts a Thanksgiving dinner every year for customers to come in for as long as they want to socialize, eat as much as they can and play board games. One customer, Alyson Lowrey, WSU senior psychology major, said she felt welcomed and invited her first time in the store, and it was nonjudgmental. “[The store] is f*cking tight,” Lowrey said.

Palouse | Continued from Page 5 “As a Roamer, I didn’t get to interact as much with the other volunteers, but they all were nice and it was a great community,” Loz said. Loz wore a homemade zombie costume for Haunted Palouse on Saturday, Oct. 19. “It was a mask,” he said. “I wore a ghillie suit and then I put a little bit of makeup on the mask and on my neck.”

Loz suggested that those who tend to be more nervous around haunted houses still go to Haunted Palouse, but with a group. “You don’t want to go alone, or you’ll get too scared,” he said. In the case of the haunted house located at the Newspaper & Printing Museum in Palouse, Haunted Palouse Co-Chair

Janet Barstow, dressed as the Grim Reaper, puts groups of four of five together if people came in smaller groups. “It’s easier to separate them that way,” she said. The haunted house in the print museum began in complete darkness. The walls moved closer and closer while attendees struggled to move forward.

Crime | Continued from Page 5 safe environment for kids trick-or-treating. “We worry about all the kids crossing the street in the dark,” Opgenorth said. Opgenorth said a couple of officers will also be trickor-treating with children in downtown Pullman. “We want to join the com-

munity as much as possible,” Opgenorth said. Opgenorth said he wants to provide a safe place where everyone can have fun. He said all officers will be equipped with candy and glow sticks on Halloween while patrolling.

Following rooms included a maze where people had to choose the correct door to keep moving along, fake spiders and the faces of volunteers popping out and other volunteers in costume separating one person from the rest of their group. Each room had details that fit the theme. These themes included an evil mermaid’s tank, a room of evil dolls and

a room of flashing lights with a volunteer in costume walking toward a group. Once attendees left each of the haunted houses, many went to the stand outside the print museum for cookies, hot chocolate and apple cider, all sold at $1 each. Others chose to visit the on-site fortune teller or go to one of the local bars in Palouse.

The best way to stay safe this week and avoid any trouble with the police is to stay alert and be smart. This time can be high risk and anything could happen, so be prepared and cautious to keep Halloween a blast. Happy haunting!

Movies | Continued from Page 6 of the horror genre, social media manager Hayley Springer said. “It’s really amazing how from olden times you can trace those roots and how vampires then are so different from vampires today,” she said. “Thinking of all the spins on those classic movies, it’s amazing how we keep bringing those back.” Springer also recommended “The Blair Witch Project,” she said. She added that the film influenced “Paranormal Activity” and other foundfootage style horror films. “That one, I could see as revolutionary,” Springer said. “I love how that’s an example of the originality you constantly see in horror, how they’re constantly finding ways to appeal to what scares you.” The original “Halloween” from 1978 that stars Jamie Lee Curtis is another horror movie that Springer said she enjoys. “That one, just from the

music to the very basic ‘killer chasing woman,’ really set in motion the slasher film sequence,” Springer said. “The stranger stalking you is something that we all fear.” Equipment Manager Bjorn Elliott appreciates the story behind the filmmaking process of “Halloween,” he said. The original “Halloween” film had a low budget, and the director wrote the music and added it over the film at the last minute, Elliott said. “They had to figure out something, so on the piano, it’s just a few keys,” he said. “It’s known as one of the most iconic horror themes now, and it was done on such a tiny budget. They had no idea it was going to be such a big hit.” Elliott recommends “The Exorcist” as another horror movie to watch before the spooky season ends, he said. “That was […] a good one because it’s based off of real-life events,” Elliott

said. “It did a good job of selling the supernatural, which a lot of movies take for granted.” For those who are not fans of horror but still want to celebrate Halloween, Springer suggests films that invoke feelings of nostalgia rather than fear, she said. Some of the films that Springer recommends include “Hocus Pocus” and “Halloweentown.” “I can definitely see the appeal for those who grew up with it, with just the nice, basic witches and monsters,” Springer said. Films by Director Tim Burton, such as “Beetlejuice” and the 1999 film “Sleepy Hollow” also serve as a middle ground, she said. “Tim Burton brings a unique kind of darkness yet playfulness to whatever he does,” Springer said. With so many different types of Halloween movies, there is sure to be a film for anyone.

Police Calls | Continued from Page 8 officers. “Someone is trying to report that an event happened and the description is that some costumed person did something,” he said. “So we go and look for them and

then all of a sudden there’s five people dressed in the same costume described.” He said costumes can make it pects. “Some [costumes] are pretty elaborate,” he said. “Some are

just like an old-fashioned sheet over the head - they’re going as Casper the Ghost.” Hansen said some costumes can also lead to misleading reports. He said bloody costumes are often the source for some

unfounded reports. “We get a call reporting an injured person, and when we respond that’s just a costume. [It’s] supposed to look that way,” he said. “They’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, this person got beat up and

they’re bloodied and walking down the street,’ and it’s just a costume.” Hansen said people can have fun and still drink responsibly. “Go out there. Have fun, and be safe,” Hansen said.

wants to make their dreams, or nightmares, come true,” Romancer said. “Reanimation is really the wave of the future. Everyone wants a drooling, eight-foot-tall, undead servant. I mean, McDonald’s is already subcontracting with Stanford to replace most of their workforce with Frankenstein Model 99s to increase productivity and save money. It’s a fantastic business strategy, honestly.” “I’m just happy we’re finally getting our recognition and funding as legitimate members of the WSU biology department,”

Shelley said. “Maybe now I can set up an actual lab, not just a workspace at the top of the clock tower, where I have to look down on the whole campus and laugh maniacally.” The biology department will benefit from this generous grant, and so will the scientific community as a whole. In fact, the WSU environmental science department is already in cooperation with some of the reanimated corpses, who, because of their brute undead strength, are ideal for waste compacting. In other words, they do the mash. They do the monster mash.

Frankenstein | Continued from Page 9 “I mean, I don’t want to wait for a thunderstorm every time I wanna get some Franks cooking for my grad student class. So I use the battery from my 1998 Honda Civic and some jumper cables. If you give it a good zap, it works just as good as the real thing.” Upon reanimation, the corpse has the tendency to be homicidal and confused, often lashing out at its creator or those around it for bringing it back to life. Some WSU professors have taken to leaving certain appendages off their creations, in order to minimize

damage to themselves and their students. “It’s pretty funny to see a scientific abomination that spits in the face of God Himself try to strangle you with no arms,” Romancer said. “Kinda brings a little light to your day.” With the new biology grant, which totals exactly $666 million, more mad science and reanimation classes will be offered through the Life (But Is It, Though?) Sciences department, giving a whole new generation of WSU students the opportunity to flip the over-

sized metal switch and bring a cobbled-together collection of body parts to something resembling life. Classes such as “BIO 203: Advanced Grave Robbing,” “COM 103: Maniacal PostExperiment Laughter,” “MUSIC 666: Sinister Pipe-organ Riffs” and numerous others will help hundreds of students become outcast mad scientists, exiled to a crumbling castle with only their hunchback sidekick (generally a business major) for company. “I think this is a great opportunity for anyone who really

The WSU Crop and Soil Graduate Student Association will host its 4th annual Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat food drive on Halloween night in Pullman. Volunteers will “trick-ortreat” and collect non-perishable goods and other items that will be donated to local food banks. Rachel Breslauer, co-president of the Crop and Soils Graduate Student Association, said the event is a fun way for community members to get involved and donate items without having to leave their homes. She said this year, the group plans to collect donations from Military Hill in Pullman. Wilson Craine, co-president of the Crop and Soils Graduate Student Association, said the group contacted local food banks and pantries to make a list of what type of goods are needed. He said the group made copies of the list and gave it out to community members a week prior to the event. “It gives people the time to shop over the weekend and have the items prepared and ready for us when we show up on the night of Halloween,” he said. Volunteers who signed up will meet at 5 p.m. on campus to be put into pairs. From there, the pairs will go to houses to collect donations. Craine said that at 8 p.m., volunteers are welcome to stay and help organize goods. He said the group goes to the WSU greenhouse after collecting to sort donations. The goods are sorted into different groups based on which food bank they will be donated to and what type of item it is, he said. Nikayla Strauss, treasurer of

There are also not many large animal veterinarians in the area who are able to provide at-home services for clients. “Some people don’t have trailers, or they don’t have the means to be able to get them into a trailer,” Kammerer said. “It just works out better if we’re able to go to them, especially if it’s an emergency and they can’t get the animal loaded.” Bradley said serving their clients at their homes or ranches gives them an opportunity to develop relationships with their clients and make the visits more personal. “If they have a good rela-

A Tyrannosaurus rex, Mickey Mouse and a witch sat in on the ASWSU senate meeting last night. The senators wore Halloween costumes and heard updates from several members of university executives on the Division of Student Affairs. They discussed projects such as the university’s Culture and Heritage Houses, food security and freedom of speech on campus. Jaime Nolan, associate vice president for Community, Equity and Inclusive Excellence, said she has talked to student groups on campus about maintaining and using the university’s Culture and Heritage Houses. The houses are located on B Street and were established to develop diverse learning communities in the College Hill neighborhood, according to the cultural houses website. “We’re at a point now where we’ve had to start grappling with the fact that the houses, each one of them, are in some state of disrepair,” Nolan said. “To bring them to where they should be, it’s very, very costly.” Nolan said Student Affairs is aware of the history and the meaning the houses hold, so they track how often they’re being used. She said the usage is waning because the Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center has become a space for students to use, but WSU is not diminishing the use of cultural spaces on campus. Senator Linda Vargas said many students do not realize

They are happy to run their business in the area because people have been supportive. “Just being out on farms, getting to meet people and become a part of their lives really is fun,” Bradley said. “That’s why we wanted to do this. It’s kind of a new adventure every day.”
