Dining services introduces new Plus 1 meal plan BY MARGARYTA KIRAKOSIAN mkirakos@olemiss.edu

Find somewhere to live, buy books, get food. These are the necessities each semester requires, and as this semester comes to an end, it’s time to think about ordering a meal plan for the fall. Next year, Ole Miss Dining Services will offer a new meal plan. The Plus 1 plan will allow one meal per day at any Ole Miss dining location, including the Johnson Commons, the Starbucks in the J.D. Williams Library and The Marketplace in the Residential College South. In addition to that meal, there will be plan options for extra anytime meals. “The new meal plan structure was introduced in response to feedback that we received from students,” Joshua Halliday, marketing manager of Dining Services, said. “Students will benefit from the Plus 1 meal plan because it allows them to use their meal plan across campus.” English and classics junior Douglas Odom was one of the first students to try out the new meal plan. “I had the Rebel 50 this past year, which worked just fine for me, but being able to use a meal at Starbucks in the library or

Einstein’s Bagels is very convenient,” he said. Odom also said he liked not having to use Flex every time he wanted one meal, a feature which may attract students who usually depend on Flex for meals. “This new Plus 1 meal plan sounds like a good idea,” computer science major Shelby Sherman said. “I don’t have a meal plan and use Flex. In general, I eat on campus once a day – that’s why I would like to have Plus 1 meal.” Students who generally rely on meal plans have also seen Plus 1 as an appealing alternative. “I have a commuter meal plan, which means I can use 50 meals only in JC,” Spanish major Caroline Huey said. “I like this meal plan because it is enough meals for me, and I can roll over those I didn’t use in the previous semester to the next one, but sometimes I wish I could have meals in the Union. That’s why the Plus 1 meal plan seems like an interesting offer. The only drawback is that you need to fit your meal in $7, but it is a common problem for all meal plans. It would be great if there were more meal plan combos.” Halliday said there are retail prices in the venues on campus

Insurance risk management sophomore Sam Cooper has his card swiped at the Johnson Commons. Students will have a new meal plan option in the fall called Plus 1 that allows them to get one meal per day.

and meal combos will be decided by each individual venue. The Plus 1 meal plan is not ideal for everybody. Hannah Duke, an elementary education major, has a standard RC meal plan, which includes unlimited RC dining, 100 meals at other locations and $200 of Flex a semester. “It is very convenient, and I never run out of meals,” Duke

said. “The Plus 1 meal plan is definitely not as convenient as the meal plan I have right now. Besides, I need more than one meal per day sometimes.” The Plus 1 meal plan allows people to have a meal at the following locations: Starbucks in the J.D. Williams Library, Einstein Bros Bagels, Towers Grille, Crosby Market, Burger Studio, Chick-Fil-A, Magnolia Kitchen,

Topio’s, Zoca, Toss It Up, McCormick Café, Sunday Brunch, Subway, Subway Mobile, Southern Tsunami Sushi, Bistro 1848, C3 Express, Papa John’s, POD, POD Express and Pinkberry. Returning students can sign up for the Plus 1 meal plan by May 11 and receive an unlimited drink card for free on the Dining Services website, olemiss.campusdish.com.

Possibility of public school privatization Vice chancellor candidate

GRAPHIC BY CAIN MADDEN | The Daily Mississippian

BY MARIDANE HEWES maridaneh@gmail.com

A new bill facing the Mississippi Legislature could allow certain areas to create statefunded private schools. The Mississippi Public Charter Schools Act of 2012, or SB 2401, addresses the privatization of public schools. Failing schools, a rating of which is determined by the Mississippi Department of Education’s Accountability Results, would have the option to become

private schools. Charlie Mitchell, assistant dean of the Meek School of Journalism and New Media, recently wrote an article discussing the issue of privatization. He said privatization is the result of the state essentially dropping out. Right now, the state, counties and cities operate the public schools, and the schools are funded with public money. If this bill passes, the new private schools will receive state funding to operate.

The use of public funds for private or charter schools would take funds away from public schools and school districts that may also be having problems meeting the needs of students. “I believe it to be in our best interest to demand the best for all of our students, not just those that can afford it or those in which learning and achievement is easy,” Brian Harvey, Oxford School District superintendent, said. Schools in other states have made the switch to private systems. Some of the schools are doing well, while others have not improved at all. “If we want to have strong and vibrant communities, we must continue to stand up for those who cannot stand for themselves, while maintaing high standards of achievement for all,” Harvey said. Harvey said the relationship between schools and communities is reciprocal. Where one finds strong schools, one also finds strong communities. It is also true that where one finds See SCHOOLS, PAGE 3

FORREST SMITH | The Daily Mississippian

Vice chancellor of student affairs candidate Edward Whipple presented his philosophy for student affairs Monday afternoon at Bryant Hall.

BY RYAN GROVER drgrover08@gmail.com

Vice chancellor of student affairs candidate Edward Whipple described Ole Miss simply as “a beautiful campus and great people.” In a Monday afternoon meeting, Whipple presented his vision for student affairs

and touted his experience in similar positions. He began his presentation explaining how the sinking of the Titanic was the result of a lack of leadership – the captain ignoring warnings of ice ahead, the slow lowering of the life boats and the lack of binoculars used by the lookouts. Whipple then posed the question: “Is student affairs headed for a fate like the Titanic?” He said student affairs needs strong leadership that will take advantage of the tools they have been given. Throughout the presentation, Whipple exhibited his awareness of current trends and the need for change. He cited educational leaders and statistics showing the unsatisfactory tendencies of American students. “America cannot lead in the 21st century unless we have the best-educated, most See CANDIDATE, PAGE 3

Goodbye spring semester, hello summer BY ADAM BLACKWELL ablackwe@go.olemiss.edu

Wow, it’s hard to believe that another semester is almost over. Personally, I feel like we should still be in the ides of March, not the beginning of May. In less than two weeks, we’ll be finished with classes and moving on to a relaxed, enjoyable summer. If your semester has been anything like mine, a break is much needed. This has certainly been one of my busiest semesters at the University of Mississippi. Constant meetings and interviews, the Big Event, Relay for Life and Double Decker, not to mention a plethora of events in my hometown. While my semester has been

filled with a busy schedule, there has also been lots of fun and memorable moments. Last week, my best friend and I helped pull off a marriage proposal for a good friend of ours. She was proposed to right in the Student Media Center. Also, I’ve danced in the rain in the middle of the Grove. How many people can say they’ve done that? This semester has been a positive one for me; however, I realize some of you may have not have had the best experience. Honestly, that’s a part of college and a part of life in general. My freshman year was certainly not the easiest or most fun. If I learned anything from that experience, it’s that you must continue to persevere. Life goes on, and you cannot be left behind. Furthermore, you have to develop patience. Eventually, if you endure the tough times, everything begins to look up. Continue to work on campus and get involved; continue to try and meet

new people. I can tell you from experience that if you continue to make an effort, you will experience the rewards. Some of you may even be contemplating transferring to a different college. I understand your thoughts and frustrations; however, again, I would suggest continuing to persevere. The University of Mississippi has something to offer everyone, and often it just takes time to find where you fit. If you’ve kept up with my columns throughout the semester, you’ve probably gotten the idea that I enjoy giving advice. You’re right. I enjoy reflecting on my past experiences and trying to help others. Besides, I like to think that I have all the answers to life’s problems – if only that were true. As we move into our relaxing summers, don’t forget to remember all of the great times you’ve had this semester, and reflect on what you want to change in your life. Use this time to rejuvenate and renew,

so that when we enter fall 2012, we will all be ready to conquer the obstacles and enjoy the good times that always come with this phase of life we call college. I hope you’ll use your summer and be productive. Whether that means taking summer classes, working, interning or just revitalizing yourself, take advantage of your summer. So many people waste their time away; summer really is the best chance to work on advancing your education or future career. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoy my vacation time, and I definitely try to waste some time as well, but I also try to hold an internship or job and make as many connections as possible. Anyway, enjoy your summer, and I can’t wait to see what the next semester will hold for us all. Adam Blackwell is a public policy leadership sophomore from Natchez.

The ‘buzz’ involving hand sanitizers

BY ANGELA ROGALSKI abbeangela@gmail.com

As journalists, we have a duty to inform when writing about a topic, even when that topic seems impossible to mentally digest. Such was the case when I began to read about the latest “trend” teenagers are participating in: Drinking hand sanitizers to get the same buzz alcohol provides. After my initial gastrointestinal disgust at the thought, I tried to reach back in time to when I was a teen and think

about what was “trendy” to ingest at the time. The only thing I could come up with was a distant memory of a six-pack of Old Milwaukee and a severe rash that covered my entire upper body, which indicated to my parents that something was definitely amiss and forced me to admit to them what I had done. So, it was at the ripe, old age of 13 that I discovered I was allergic to cheap beer (thank God) and that I shouldn’t assume that just because my friends did it, it was cool. And, if I am to be honest, there were many dangerous things being done when I was a teen, too – certain household inhalants being used and many beverages other than

beer being drunk – that were very hazardous and potentially fatal to those kids who did it. So, it was with that mindset that I approached this latest form of recreational experimentation and tried to fathom why these teens would swallow the gooey, gel-like substance I use to de-germ my hands, just to catch a buzz. Shaking my head would be an understatement. The article I read, from CNN.com, said poison control centers nationwide are reporting that usage of 60 percent ethanol-based products are on the rise. In the piece, Dr. Robert J. Geller, a medical toxicologist and Emory University pediatrician, said the 60 percent

ethanol content makes these substances similar to drinking 120-proof alcohol. The article said that while no deaths had been reported, there were serious consequences for teens using the sanitizers repeatedly, such as sedation, vomiting and slowed breathing. As for how they can stand to drink the stuff, according to the article, teens are finding recipes online to make the substance more palatable, like adding ingredients to separate the alcohol from the gel or simply diluting it. The question as to why teens are choosing this unappealing form of “drinking,” I think, is the real issue here. Is there more to the problem than just the availability of the product?

The article agrees that there may be underlying substance abuse issues at play here, and while every generation has its no-way-to-understand-unlessyou’re-a-teenager situations, the thought of my kid swallowing hand sanitizer just to get drunk terrifies me. Is the chasm that separates the adult world from that angst-filled realm known as teenage-dom really that wide? Or are we, as parents and adults, missing something here? Either way, it’s seemingly un-definable and absolutely frightening. Angela Rogalski is a print journalism senior who lives in Abbeville. Follow her on Twitter @abbeangel.

CANDIDATE, continued from page 1 competitive workforce in the world,” Whipple said, quoting President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address. Whipple said 60 percent of U.S. jobs will require some form of post-secondary education by 2025, and the fastestgrowing jobs already require a bachelor’s degree. “This will require the United States to have 800,000 more college graduates each year through 2025 to meet our workforce demands,” he said. Whipple’s plan to get more college graduates and quality

students features the integration of learning and student affairs. “Student affairs must change its message to make learning seamless, holistic and integrative,” he said. “What does the University of Mississippi want its graduates to look like?” He said learning must be made a constant, incessant component of college life; it should be part of every activity. He said he wants student organizations and classes to work together to give students hands-on experience. Whipple’s plan also aims for institutions to become learning communities that are student-centered and committed to excellence.

continued from page 1 a struggling community, the schools are having problems, as well. Mitchell said he does not think privatization is a good thing. He said if public schools were given the power to monitor their students as closely as private schools, they would be able to improve. “I think that they think it’s too difficult, and their hands are tied, but I do not agree,” Mitchell said as to why pub-

lic schools are not given the same powers as private schools. In his article, Mitchell said Gov. Phil Bryant and other supporters of privatizing schools believe “charters will only be issued to groups that will improve outcomes for all students who enroll, that everything will be closely monitored and on and on.” Both Harvey and Mitchell agree that Mississippi schools are headed toward privatization, whether they like it or not. The bill has not been passed yet, but Bryant is in favor of it.

Ole Miss pedals along

QUENTIN WINSTINE | The Daily Mississippian

Students check out the Bike Give Back display near the Student Union.

BY KELLS JOHNSON krjohns2@olemiss.edu

SCHOOLS,

05.01.12

The idea of cycling as a mode of transportation may seem absurd to some, but to several Ole Miss students, it is the most convenient and productive way of travel. Not only is biking a great form of exercise, but with gas prices in today’s economy, a bike may be a wise investment. In March of last year, Annalyn Censky of CNN reported that Mississippi families spend at least $402 per month or 13.2 percent of their income on gas. Lafayette-Oxford-University Pathways has made multiple efforts to improve biking systems for students and local bikers, as well. The University of Mississippi Office of Sustainability also provides

two biking programs: Rebel Pedals and Bike Give Back. Rebel Pedals is an on-campus bike rental program that allows students to become members of the program and rent bikes for up to a full semester. Bike Give Back takes bikes, refurbishes them and allows students with no other transportation to use them. “Last year, over 200 bikes were

stolen, which is why programs like Bike Give Back and Rebel Pedals were created,” Jim Morrison, the director of the Office of Sustainability, said. Toran Dean, a geological engineering senior, thinks cycling is an ideal mode of transportation in a city the size of Oxford. “Oxford is small enough to ride everywhere,” Dean said. “Hopefully, one day the student body will realize it and use it as their mode of transportation.” The university recently started a cycling team that is part of the Southeastern Collegiate Cycling Conference. This year is the kickoff for the organization, and members of the SCCC are training to compete other school in the upcoming year. May is National Bike Month, and Thursday, May 10 is National Bike to Work Day. For further questions on biking, contact the Office of Sustainability at (662)915-2074.

Diamond Rebels aim to bring fun to the ballpark

TYLER JACKSON | The Daily Mississippian

Sophomore catcher Will Allen shoots an imaginary bow and arrow to his teammates after hitting a double against Arkansas. The Diamond Rebels perform this ritual after hitting a double.

BY DAVID COLLIER dlcollie@olemiss.edu

Through the years, OxfordUniversity Stadium/Swayze Field has had many different traditions, making it one of the best atmospheres for college baseball in the country. This season, you can find a Rebel player who takes a double look at the dugout and shoots an imaginary bow and arrow to his teammates, but the bow-

and-arrow shooting joins a long list of things that make Swayze a unique baseball environment. There has been everything from singing Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” during the games to the emergence of player interaction during “Love is Gone” by David Guetta. For years, the right-field student section has interacted with the players by writing on the ball that the center fielder and right fielder warm up with between

innings. There has also been the emergence of the Michael Myers masked man standing in left field while sophomore righthander Mike Mayers is on the mound. But the fun doesn’t stop in the stands. When right-handed pitcher Aaron Barrett was at Ole Miss a few years ago, he brought a wide variety of dugout antics that the players performed in different situations during games.

Baseball players have long been known for their superstitions, and players all the way from T-ball to the professional ranks have quirky things they do to stay loose during intense matchups. The Texas Rangers, for example, are notorious for their dugout antics during back-toback World Series appearances. They’ve had their own hand signs for certain achievements such as a “claw” to represent something positive offensively or “antlers” to symbolize something speed-related. The “claw and antlers” phenomenon was noticed by some of the veteran players on this year’s Rebel team, and they wanted to do something themselves. “Me, (junior second baseman Alex) Yarbrough, (senior first baseman Matt) Snyder and a couple of the older guys were sitting around thinking what could we do to do something like the Rangers,” junior left fielder Tanner Mathis said. “We were running on the bus on the way to the airport to go to TCU, and someone said shoot a bow and arrow, so we gave it a shot, and we thought it was pretty cool. It kind of stuck.”

While this is the first season the bow and arrow is being used in this way in Oxford, it isn’t a totally new thing. The bow and arrow was one of many things Barrett brought to the Ole Miss baseball program, and Mathis thinks that has something to do with Swayze Field’s newest tradition. “I think that all has something to do with it,” Mathis said. “If we hadn’t been shooting arrows in 2010, my freshman year, if we hadn’t been doing it then, I don’t think anyone would’ve come up with it. But, we were in ESPN The Magazine for it, so I think someone said, ‘Well, we’ve already been here, so why not keep doing it?’” Snyder said shooting the bow and arrow is a way to keep everyone relaxed and loose during games. “It’s cool because it keeps everybody into the game,” Snyder said. “It makes it a lot of fun. Baseball can be really serious sometimes, and you can’t just forget that you’re playing a fun game. It’s not meant to be one of those games that’s really serious. See REBELS, PAGE 5

REBELS EARN FOURTH STRAIGHT REGIONAL BID The Ole Miss women’s golf team earned its fourth consecutive NCAA Regional bid Monday, as the Rebels were selected to the NCAA Central Regional in Columbus, Ohio. The Central Regional, hosted by the Ohio State University, will be played at the Scarlet Course May 10-12.

DAVID TABBED ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM Men’s golfer Joe David was able to add another note to a stellar 2011-12 campaign today when the senior was named a member of the All-SEC Second Team. Currently rated the No. 34 individual in the nation, David leads the Rebels this season with a 71.43 stroke average. The native of Madison, Tenn., has finished in the top 20 in nine of 10 events, including three in the top-five. His regular season was highlighted by third-place showings at the Mason Rudolph Championship and the David Toms Intercollegiate.

“You have to relax when you play baseball because if you’re not, then too many bad things are going to happen. It’s good to get everyone into the game and show everyone that we do have a lot of fun out here.” Although the bow-and-arrow shooting is primarily seen on the base path, it doesn’t end there. Yarbrough has a special sign for each outfielder when there are two outs, and sure enough, he and sophomore right fielder Preston Overbey shoot an arrow at each other. Mathis said all the antics of the team come from the unity they have with one another, which leads to more intensity on the field. “Coach Godwin, when he got here, wanted us to have more energy,” Mathis said. “Play with energy, play with focus and play to win. Throughout the fall, we got really close, and I think everybody wants everybody to succeed. Someone gets a hit – it doesn’t matter who it is – everyone is happy for him. And that’s how it should be. “I haven’t played on a team this close ever. It’s awesome.”

In the 10-0 shutout of Ole Miss earlier in the year, Scarborough went 4.2 innings giving up no runs, two hits and two walks to go along with two strikeouts. Although he is winless against Ole Miss, Scarborough has pitched well in three starts, and the Golden Eagles won each of those games. Offensively, the advantage goes to the Rebels, who are hitting .308 as a team and averaging six runs per game, but as of late, those numbers haven’t meant much. Junior second baseman Alex Yarbrough is the leader at the plate with a .420 batting average, three home runs and 38 RBI, while senior first baseman Matt Snyder is hitting .355 with 10 home runs and a Southeastern Conferenceleading 48 RBI. Southern Miss is batting .281 as a team and averaging 5.8 runs per game. Freshman catcher Austin Roussel, who has only played in 23 games, and freshman outfielder Mason Robbins are the offensive leaders for the Golden Eagles with .348 and .346 averages,

No. 24 Ole Miss looks for redemption against Golden Eagles BY DAVID COLLIER dlcollie@olemiss.edu

Looking to get back on the winning side of things, No. 24 Ole Miss (28-16) will take on Southern Miss (25-18) tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Trustmark Park in Pearl to make up a game from earlier in the season that was canceled due to rain. Tonight’s contest will be the first of two midweek games for the Rebels, who will face off with Murray State Wednesday in Oxford before welcoming No. 4 LSU for a three-game series starting Friday. Southern Miss, who has won three straight in the series, got the best of Ole Miss early this season, shutting out the Rebels 10-0 in Oxford on March 20. The Golden Eagles are coming off a series win at Marshall, while the Rebels have lost four of their last five games. On the mound, Ole Miss will send freshman right-hander Sam Smith, who is 2-3 this season with a 5.19 earned run average. Smith has recorded 27 strikeouts to just seven walks in 34.2 innings pitched. His counterpart will be sophomore right-hander Boomer Scarborough, who is 1-2 on the year with a 3.43 earned run average in 39.1 innings pitched. He has recorded 29 strikeouts but also 29 walks. Despite average numbers, Scarborough has a long history of success against the Rebels. See BASEBALL, PAGE 5
