Oxford City Market opens in april
The University of Mississippi Athletics Department has announced that commuter parking lots will be cleared on football game days for members of the Ole Miss Athletics Foundation to park instead. Students who are parked in commuter lots on game days will be towed unless they have a parking pass through the Ole Miss Athletics Foundation. Parking on curbs and sidewalks will also no longer be allowed. The decision process to change the parking on game days started last fall prior to football season, according to Dan O’Dowd, assistant ANNA BRIGANCE | The Daily Mississippian

“Homegrown, Homemade, Hometown” will be the slogan for the new Oxford City Market, which will open on April 30. The farmers market will run from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. each Tuesday. The organizers want to make the market a bi-weekly event with another day closer to the weekend, perhaps Friday. “We want to avoid clashing with other local markets in the area while providing local
farmers as many opportunities to make as much money as possible,” the market’s representative said at the meeting. All produce providers will be inspected prior to the first market to make ensure the growers are indeed selling what they claim to be producing. Also, claims of organic food will first need to be verified by the state of Mississippi, and all claims of pesticide-free food will need to be verified prior to the first market.

The Retreat at Oxford and the Hub at Oxford student living complexes will be serviced by the Oxford University Transit line this fall. The board unanimously passed a proposal to extend the route along An-
derson Road to run past the new living complexes. “Originally we thought this might cost us some money, but they’re both agreeing to subsidize it themselves,” Mayor Pat Patterson said.
Falkner Flats’ building plans change THOMAS GRANING | The Daily Mississippian

Distance markers were installed on common paths on campus over spring break to encourage University of Mississippi students to get active. Andrea Jekabsons, assistant director of employment and training in the department of human resources, explained the university’s move.
“If they can’t do the mile marker in between classes or while on campus, then it is a reminder to find time to walk,” Jekabsons said. Beginning outside Peabody Hall, two paths circle campus. The blue path requires a 15-minute walk, and the red takes only 10 minutes to complete. Together, the paths total 1.25 miles. Classics senior Gabby Cog-
gin said she thinks the path markers are a positive move. “It’s going to be really helpful to know how far I have run now and pace myself and possibly hit a different goal the next time around,” Coggin said. Chancellor Dan Jones will walk the newly defined paths to celebrate National Walking Day with members of the Oxford-University community at 10 a.m. on April 3.

A proposal to change the original building plan for the Falkner Flats housing project on Old Taylor Road passed by a vote of 5-2 Tuesday night. The proposal changed the original plan from a dorm style of living to the more conventional look of a house, complete with a garage.
Ward III Board of Aldermen member Janice Antonow opposed the bill, citing concerns about traffic congestion and lack of commercial development. Falkner Flats is operating under a planned unit development plan, one that allows for and encourages commercial development on the property.

Book BBQ for the spring equinox BY DAN PURDY email@example.com
We’re at the exact middle between the darkness in winter (winter solstice) and the light of summer (summer solstice). In that moment of resurrection, the spiritual realization won’t experience revival at the dawn but will be blessed in the night: We’re having a book BBQ in the Grove, and you’re invited. Ever since Facebook and Twitter gave people a reason to broadcast themselves, one would have thought something about common sense.

Spring break is behind us, advising and registration are upon us, and freshmen have almost survived their first year. One of the things that will be pushed on students in the coming weeks is meal plans, which are required for all freshmen, along with most Greeks living in their respective houses. Additionally, all Residential College students are required to purchase the RC-specific meal plan. What about the rest of the students, though? Is a meal plan worth it? The easy answer is no. Each meal on a meal plan includes a $7 equivalency to dining locations. Essentially, it is no different from swiping your card and having $7 deducted from your balance, even if the meal is only $5. Furthermore, the amount is restricted to use on campus. Meanwhile, Flex and Ex-

press accounts deduct the actual amount with each swipe. No more losing $2 with some swipes of the card. Express is also valid at other dining locations around town. This school year, Ole Miss Dining unveiled the new Plus 1 plan that was supposed to be the greatest meal deal of all time. It’s simple, since students do not have to keep up with a balance of dollars or meals, but it is still costly. For a semester, the Plus 1 plan is listed at $698 for one meal a day. At a $7 equivalency, a student would have to use 100 meals to get his or her money’s worth. This means that each day a student does not swipe, he or she essentially loses $7. Most off-campus students won’t be using this plan on the weekends, which cuts out almost 30 percent of the available days. Let’s assume that a student uses 80 meals a semester, using the full $7 each time. He or she would ultimately lose $138. That number would increase each time the meal totals less than $7. Not to mention the loss if a meal totals more than the $7 allotment. Other meal plans are just

I care in this circumstance with the conflict at the seat of the novel: the second-handers who appease bureaucracy and tradition in “shameless schmoozing” versus those who appease their own inner direction for progress. We can twist around like disagreeing stray cats sorting that argument out, or we can understand that human beings must progress and adopt new worlds or else we become mediocrity.

just laughing about this willing ignorance in America. But don’t you worry about closing up now; DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and its blue-sky think tank are busy corralling the wild west of cyberspace. It’s not tin foil hat time, it’s “we’re all living under scrutiny, your best friend becomes like the paparazzi” time. So get the idea out of your head that thought crime and thought police exist as totalitarian concepts. To the fire with “1984”! “The Jungle” by Upton Sinclair blew open the meatpacking industry’s dirty side (no pun intended) and paved the way for legislation regulating food. The book also exposed company corruption and unfair working conditions. So, you’re telling me that unsanitary food
as much a scam as the Plus 1, especially for freshmen. What about freshmen who join a Greek organization, meaning that they have access to dining in the house during the entire spring semester? Each freshman is still required to purchase a meal plan. The Spring Greek 50 can be purchased for $425, also at $7 equivalency. Thus, a freshman with this plan would be paying $425 for $350 worth of food. Consider the alternative of only using Flex when dining. $200 is already required to be on Flex each semester. When it runs out, students can easily reload the account, for a fee of course. This way, students are getting to use the exact amount that they paid. Ole Miss Dining Services needs to quit screwing students over, especially when many of the dining locations aren’t exactly up to excellent standards. After all, students are a captive audience, especially the freshmen who have no choice but to purchase a meal plan. So much for freedom of choice.

Individualism vs. collectivism
BY WANFEI WU email@example.com
Recently, the gun control bill discussion drew my attention. I began to think about why the U.S. allows its citizens to own guns legally. What are those guns for? Why can’t people in China own a gun? I believe the rooted difference between the Chinese and Americans is collectivism and individualism. The Chinese have a strong sense of collectivism because we grow up in a collective setting. For example: Our relationships with our classmates. We were taught that we should put the group interest ahead of individual interest. When the individual interest has a conflict with the group interest, we need to sacrifice the individual interest. Meanwhile, Americans See COLLECTIVISM, PAGE 3

“The Fountainhead.” Burn the book. If people truly had their heads on a swivel, an outrage burst would ignite in my email box. They’d tell me how the recession in ‘08 caused “Grapes of Wrath” to be reread to help understand an empty table. That when watching copycat shooters emerging after the Newtown incident, “A Brave New World” gave insight on the path to understanding. The YouTube video from CodeOrg and The Ninety-Five Theses would come to mind about the change-wind growling in education. But what do I know? Only that I’ve left quite a few books out due to space constrictions in this article. So as we enjoy the book BBQ on the equinox, I hope we can get the Säuberung bright enough in the Grove.
COLLECTIVISM, continued from page 2
grow up with a strong sense of individualism. Everyone is an individual. Although they also grow with classmates, they pay more attention to the individual rather than to the whole class. Chinese media tells us that China’s economy is becoming stronger; the GDP is growing very fast. However, how many people would really care about the lives of individual Chinese people? Who exactly is creating and contributing to those exciting numbers for China’s economy? We have paid too much attention to the macro level. On the micro level, the price of commodities has risen dramatically in the past 10 years, which also contributed to the GDP numbers. However, the rise of
income was far behind the rise of price. Furthermore, China’s social welfare system still needs a lot of work. The lives of the lower-class Chinese are becoming harder and harder. The development of China has been very fast in recent decades, but the city construction is even faster. The high speed of the construction is fueled by the strong government administrative order of pulling down and moving out. Those old buildings were pulled down
no matter where they were or who owned them. The owners of those buildings resisted and tried to protect their property with their lives, but it was in vain. This was because the development of the whole nation is more important than individual interests and properties. If Chinese had guns, they could shoot the government to protect their property when they are violated. However, they don’t have guns; they can defend their rights only by put-
ting their lives on the line. This is collectivism. Americans pay more attention to individuals. When the individual interest has a conflict with group interest, individuals have the right to protect their own property no matter who wants to take it, even the country. Americans can shoot the people who break into their homes. This is why U.S. citizens can have guns legally. People can better protect themselves, their
rights and property with guns. However, the frequent shootings make people begin to reconsider the pros and cons of guns. The government discussed the gun control bill, but the progress was slow. It’s hard to say which one is better, collectivism or individualism. I believe we need to find a balance between them. Wanfei Wu is a graduate student from Yunnan Province, China.

Conference challenges gender perspectives The Isom Student Gender Conference provided students an opportunity to discuss gender-related subjects this week.

The 13th annual Isom Student Gender Conference â€œMind/Body/Spiritâ€? was held in the Center for Manufacturing Excellence boardroom March 19-20 with multiple panels starting from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The conference included presentations by graduate and undergraduate students, as well as a featured keynote speaker, Nordic storyteller Kari Tauring.

The Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies hosted the 13th annual Isom Student Gender Conference March 19-20. The conference, entitled Mind/Body/Spirit opened dialogue among students from universities across Mississippi and addressed gender in political debates, athletics and society at-large. â€œ(The conference) acts as a platform for the students to showcase their scholarship,â€?
said Theresa Starkey, assistant director of the Isom Center. Kari Tauring, a Nordic storyteller, was the keynote speaker for the conference this year. She performed Tuesday night using runes, rhythm and breath to tell stories of the Northlands. Thirty-one speakers, both undergraduate and graduate students, presented at this yearâ€™s conference. The speakers each had 15 minutes to present their speeches to a panel of professors and graduate students. Michael Adedipe, a graduate student studying French and
specializing in African literature, discussed the progression of female inferiority in 19thcentury French society. â€œThere is a line between men and women, but this line should not bring discrimination. Discrimination only brings loss of talents,â€? Adedipe said. Two lectures were given by art history junior Teresa Spears and classics and communications disorders senior Tess Hill. Their lectures examined Athenian vases to draw conclusions on the places of women in society. They showed how certain depictions of the Greek poet
Alice & Co. Hair â€˘ Nails â€˘ Skin
Sappho represented feminine strength in ancient Greece and explained how the segregation of genders has changed since the poetâ€™s lifetime. Maia Cotelo, an international studies freshman, presented her speech on masculinity and socialization in the Homeless World Cup, a soccer tournament between teams of homeless men. â€œI looked at the Homeless World Cup as a way to motivate homeless men through increasing their characteristics of masculinity, because when theyâ€™re homeless, they lose a lot of the power that they have, and by returning masculine characteristics, they also regain self-worth,â€? Cotelo said. According to Spears, the conference enriched her personal-
ly as well as educationally. â€œIâ€™m terrified of public speaking, so Iâ€™m trying to get used to it,â€? Spears said. â€œ(The conference) really has helped a lot, and I feel more comfortable.â€? Cotelo said the conference was helpful because it provided her with a different perspective. â€œThere are a lot of diverse things,â€? Cotelo said. â€œIt was cool to see how many ways gender impacts life.â€? The conference concluded with a student art show Wednesday evening at the Art 2 Frame gallery. More than 70 people attended the conference, at some points having to sit on the floor to listen to speakers in the boardroom of the Center for Manufacturing Excellence.

The Orchard church in Oxford has embraced technology in its worship services and programming by developing a smartphone app. BY CHARLOTTE MONA ROI email@example.com
The Orchard church in Oxford now has an app that members can use to stream sermons and use as a Bible with reading plans included on their Apple or Android devices. The app has been available since early February. “People may not always have a Bible on them, but these days people always have their smartphones on them,” Orchard member Taylor Sams said. The app is not intended to be the main resource for worship. Orchard Pastor Pat Ward said it is an aid to enhance the fellowship of his congregation by keeping subscribers up to date on events, prayer lists and movements within the church. “We also love technology and think that if it can be used in a responsible way, it can really help bring people closer to God,” Ward said. “On the flip side, we do have to keep reminding people that technology and podcasts can never replace the deep value that sincere community can have
in the life of a Christian.” Ward worked with the app’s designers to ensure a disclaimer was included regarding the app’s place in the worship experience. Users of The Orchard’s app can access the full-text English Standard Version Bible with scripture references for each Sunday and information on how to connect with the church through its website and Facebook pages. This Easter, song lyrics and scripture references will be posted for use at the morning services in the Grove. Ward said he hopes a tithing feature will be added to the app in the near future. Development of the app required two weeks to load the desired content, which included the past two year’s sermons, the church’s personal graphics and a short waiting period for app store approvals. One Orchard member said he is delighted with the app. “(The app is) very well put together and easy to use,” member Billy Canale said. “It’s great to have all the podcasts and other church info in the same place.”
athletics director for development/annual giving. “We were informed that the practice of parking on the curbs and sidewalks and grassy areas around campus was actually in violation of the American Disabilities Act,” O’Dowd said. The athletics department sought input on how to manage safe game day parking from a variety of sources, including the university’s alumni association, University Police Department, the department of parking and transportation and the city of Oxford, according to O’Dowd. He added that with 62,000 seats in the stadium, they wanted to manage the parking inventory of 6,000 spots as well as they could. “Obviously, we were concerned for students on campus and off campus,” O’Dowd said. “We were concerned for the faculty who do some work and research on the weekends.” According to O’Dowd, there are between 6,100 and 6,200 parking passes available to football fans for the upcoming football season. Only members of the Ole Miss Athletics Foundation will be eligible to obtain a pass. There are just fewer than
ANNA BRIGANCE | The Daily Mississippian
6,700 members in the foundation, which means the passes will be awarded on a priority point system. The point system measures the number of season tickets a person buys and how much money he or she has given to the university over his or her lifetime. Fans who want to shuttle can park off campus and catch a ride via the city of Oxford’s shuttle system. The current plans are for the vehicles to run to and from the Jackson Avenue Center (movie theater) and the Oxford Conference Center off Highway 7. O’Dowd said that the routes are not final and that additional locations may be added to make traffic flow more smoothly. Marketing junior Jay Sheffer does not think the new parking policy is fair to commuters. “I think it’s a little ridiculous
that I can’t park in a parking spot that I already pay for anyways,” Sheffer said. “It just doesn’t seem fair.” Class of 2013 students recently had the option to join the foundation for only $25 to help them acquire points for the future. O’Dowd said that supporting the Ole Miss Athletics Foundation is not as hard as it may seem. “We’re not asking people for thousands and thousands of dollars,” O’Dowd said. “We set up people on monthly donations so that they can accumulate for the year.” People trying to drop off equipment in the Grove will still be able to access the area through University Avenue, and O’Dowd confirmed that there will be no changes made to the times during which people can set their tents up Friday before game days.

‘Bates Motel’ brings ‘Psycho’ to the small screen
BY JOSH PRESLEY
They also never explain exactly why Norma wants to own and operate a motel, at least that I noticed. Still, “Bates Motel” shows promise. The lead actors are appealing and dense enough to carry the show and hook me in for at least one more episode. There are plenty of callbacks to “Psycho,” but they never feel intrusive, and that movie provided a pretty sparse backstory for Norman, so there’s plenty to work with here. The show’s Pacific Northwest setting and often quirky sense of humor reminds me a lot of “Twin Peaks,” and gen-
Early spring is typically a pretty uneventful time at the movie theater, and this year is no different, so let’s turn our attention to the small screen, shall we? “Bates Motel” premiered on A&E Monday night, and I decided to take a gander at it. My considerably insightful and articulate thoughts are as follows: “Bates Motel” is a prequel series to Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 horror classic “Psycho,” and it tells the story of a young Norman Bates and his overbearing mommy in a more modern setting. Why do we need a prequel to “Psycho” in 2013, especially when one or two of the various sequels (Did you know “Psycho” had sequels?) already explored Norman’s childhood? We don’t, but that doesn’t mean “Bates Motel” can’t be interesting in its own right. Freddie Highmore (“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”) and Vera Farmiga (“The Departed”) take over the roles of Norman and Norma Bates, respectively. Highmore’s American accent may waver at times, but his portrayal has all the charm and the unassuming demeanor of the original Norman, Anthony Perkins. Farmiga’s young and vibrant Norma is nothing like I imagined Norman’s mother would be like from watching “Psycho.” She’s certainly overbearing and has her creepier mo-
erally anything that reminds me of “Twin Peaks” gets a free pass. It’s obviously too early to tell if “Bates Motel” will turn out to be a great show, but it certainly has all the right ingredients if the creators can figure out how to mix them properly. The show might be overshadowed by a new series about a certain other iconic serial killer in a couple weeks, though. Check back with me to see who survived and what was left of them.

ments, but she also remains likable and even sympathetic. The first episode feels like they tried to cram two hours into one, though Highmore and Farmiga manage to hold the show together when it feels like it’s about to run off the rails. I enjoyed this first episode, but the plot feels rushed from the get-go. I’m sure part of this has to
do with expectations and the need to compete with shows like “The Walking Dead” and “Dexter,” but I didn’t really need to see anyone get stabbed halfway through the first episode. Norma and Norman have some very interesting character moments in the first half of the episode, and those lose impact when the show starts getting in a hurry.

The Lady Rebel softball team defeated Samford, 3-0, in a midweek matchup Wednesday night. After getting swept in a series against Missouri this past weekend, the Rebels (19-15) scored a run in each of the first innings. “We worked on our swings a little bit,” Thees said. “We still aren’t where we need to be, but we battled through and got some hits. The bottom half of our lineup came through.” Ole Miss got on the board when freshman shortstop Haley Culley scored on a wild pitch in the first. Freshman catcher Natalie Martinez had an RBI double in the second to extend the Rebels’ lead before freshman first baseman Madi Osias also plated a run with a double down the leftfield line in the third. Junior right-hander Carly Hummel picked up her eighth win of the season. Hummel

ting the starting nod. “They’re very talented,” Thees said of the freshmen. “They know how to play this game. It’s just a matter of making plays. I think when you have a pitcher out there with a lot of confidence it really helps.” Ole Miss hits the road this weekend for a three-game SEC series in Athens, Ga., against the No. 23 Georgia Bulldogs.

pitched a complete game, giving up no runs on four hits to go along with five strikeouts. “I felt pretty good,” Hummel said. “If I had to rate myself, I’d give myself a C-plus, but I’m really critical of myself. I thought I had an OK game today. “It was kind of difficult coming off of that losing streak, especially with Missouri. They’re an awesome team, so coming out today, I think it was really important that we got that win.” Wednesday’s contest also gave Thees a chance to get some younger players in the lineup with four freshmen get-

Johnson injured, out for rest of spring Ole Miss practiced in pads for the first time this spring on Wednesday. Head coach Hugh Freeze talked about the injury to junior defensive end C.J. Johnson, the struggles from the quarterback position, building depth on both sides of the ball and players that have impressed during the first three practices.
Junior defensive end C.J. Johnson
BY JOHN LUKE McCORD firstname.lastname@example.org
On just the third day of spring practices Wednesday, junior defensive end C.J. Johnson went down with a fractured fibula, as Ole Miss wore pads for the first time this spring inside the Indoor Practice Facility. After practice yesterday, Johnson tweeted, “Thanks for all prayers I broke my ankle having surgery tomorrow couple months ill be back better than ever. Minor setback.” Head coach Hugh Freeze

said that he should be good to go for fall practice. “Injuries are a part of this game,” Freeze said. “We sure hate it for the kids.” Aside from Johnson’s injury, Freeze seemed pleased with his team’s first performance in pads. However, he was more optimistic about the defense than he was the offense. “Defense looked good,” Freeze said. “We broke some good runs. Still struggling to be consistent at quarterback and in pass pro(tection). It’s day three, it’s still early. First day in pads, I thought was

pretty good. Pretty good day.” Freeze also expanded on the struggles from the quarterback position. “Our defense throws a lot at you,” Freeze said. “They haven’t gotten as many reps as other people have.” One goal Freeze said he has for his team this spring is to build depth. He noted depth at linebacker and running back, while depth in the secondary is developing. He said the defensive line, offensive line and wide receiver positions were not as deep.
Molly Barr Trails
Freeze singled out a few players who have impressed him during the first three spring practices, including freshman tight end Christian Morgan, junior athlete Quadarias Mireles and sophomore defensive tackle Woodrow Hamilton. Junior defensive end Carlos Thompson has also caught Freeze’s eye. “He’s done some better things,” Freeze said. “Think that year being redshirted really helped him.” Additionally, senior wide receiver Korvic Neat and sophomore defensive end Issac
Gross missed practice again today. With Neat out, Mireles moved back to slot receiver, and the move could stick until Neat returns. Gross will remain out until next week. Morgan had perhaps the day’s biggest play. In one-onones, he was lined up against a linebacker and created just a bit of separation and was able to make a one-handed catch. The Rebels will return to practice at 8 a.m. Friday. For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @JLgrindin and @thedm_sports on Twitter.

WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL BREAKS DOWN OLE MISS-WISCONSIN The Daily Mississippian managing editor Austin Miller caught up with Tom Oates, a sports columnist for the Wisconsin State Journal and Madison.com, to preview Friday’s matchup between No. 5 seed Wisconsin and No. 12 Ole Miss. Oates talks about the teams’ contrasting styles, what Wisconsin does defensively and offensively and the importance of NCAA tournament experience. BY AUSTIN MILLER email@example.com
AUSTIN MILLER: How does Wisconsin dictate its style of play, offensively and defensively? TOM OATES: They get back on defense. They’re very good at getting back on defense. They give up very few fast-break points. They don’t turn the ball over, which a lot of teams use to generate fast-break points. They seldom turn the ball over. They are always in the top five or top 10 in the nation in fewest turnovers, so they don’t give up easy baskets. They’re a very good team-oriented defensive team. They play help defense and cover up for each other really well, take away the 3-point really well. And on offense, they’re not afraid to work the ball for 25, 30 or even more seconds before getting a shot. They don’t panic. They’re
perfectly willing. They don’t take bad shots, generally, and sometimes, they don’t even take the first shot. They might look for a better shot. They’re just very patient offensively. They make the defense work. They like to see other teams work on defense, especially when they’re not teams that do it very much and teams that get in shootouts. They’re very good at dictating tempo. AM: What does Wisconsin do so effectively in defending the 3-point shot, and what kinds of challenges does Marshall Henderson present for the defense? TO: He presents tremendous challenges. He’s obviously a terrific 3-point shooter. He moves and moves and moves. He’s going to be a tremendous challenge. They’re going to always have to know where he is. They’re just really good at closing out on 3-point shooters. It’s part of their style. They protect the

rim in the back and close out on 3-point shooters. It’s a tough combination to pull off. AM: Three players average in double figures, and another averaging just under double figures. Is the balanced scoring a product of the offense? TO: They have struggled on offense all year. It’s been
hit or miss. They have had games where they played very efficiently and score in the 70s. Then, they have other games where they just miss a lot of shots and really struggle to score. Part of that is the terrific defense played in the Big Ten. Most teams are outstanding defensive teams, and there are only a few teams that like to push the ball up and down the floor like Indiana and Michigan. They have eight guys that have probably scored 15 or 16-plus points, and maybe even led the team in scoring. They’re eight deep with guys who can score. The problem is, they’re not always very good at it. There have been very few games where everyone has been on. The scoring has become more consistent the second half of the Big Ten season. That’s probably because (Ben) Brust and (Sam) Dekker have become bigger factors in the offense. AM: How big of a fac-
tor do you think the contrast in NCAA tournament experience will be? TO: I think it’s big. Wisconsin has been to the Sweet 16 the last two years. They’re a team that now expects to win tournament games. Wisconsin is a kind of team where every year in the program, your role expands. It’s a senior-led program. They don’t lose players, or many players, to the one-and-done type of thing. They have seniors. This group of seniors, Jared Berggren, Ryan Evans, Mike Bruesewitz and even junior Ben Brust, they have been in a lot of tournament games. Having been to the tournament many, many times, that means a lot. It’s a different atmosphere, and frankly, that’s an edge Wisconsin has.
