LOU SYMPHONY CONCERT

Since the establishment of the Oxford School District’s bullying and harassment policy, school officials and faculty continue to make progress in educating students about the ongoing issue. In July 2010, the Mississippi State Legislature passed a bill to prohibit bullying or harassing behavior in public schools. All public schools in Mississippi were required to adopt a policy to prevent bullying in their school environments by Dec. 31. The Oxford School District passed the first reading of the bullying policy on Sept. 27, 2010. This policy adopted a code of conduct that prohibits bullying and harassment. “The official policy was accepted this year,” said Kathy Howington, Oxford High School assistant principal. The Oxford School District established the student bullying policy in response to past bullying incidents. Also, the district wants to raise awareness of these ongoing issues. Bullying incidents are those acts directed toward certain students that make it impossible for them to concentrate or attend school. There is no state or region, nor public or private school, where bullying does not occur. According to First National Survey, 30 percent of U.S. students in grades 6-10 are bullied. Since the Oxford School District set up the policy, students have been informed of the consequences of bullying and have watched awareness videos involving various types of bullying. This past month, awareness of

bullying was incorporated in various activities throughout the Oxford School District’s system. Communicare productions provided a documentary film titled “Hating Tami.” Linda Coleman, Students Against Destructive Disagreement (SADD) advisor at Oxford High School, said the film is about a girl named Tami, a high school student, who is a victim of cyber bullying and class room ostracizing. “We picked the story because it provided follow-up questions about the video,” Coleman said. “Also, it had a strong resolution between student, teacher and parent

intervention.” Other activities for students included discussions about the film in activity teams and viewing bulletin boards posted with facts of information about bullying. Also, a guest speaker from Mental Health spoke to the staff, Howington said. The bill defines bullying behavior as “any pattern of gestures or written, electronic or verbal communication, or any act reasonably perceived as being motivated by actual or perceived differentiating characteristics and that no student or school employee shall be subjected to bullying or harassing behavior by school employee or students.”

“Bullying will always be an issue,” said Brian Harvey, Oxford School District assistant superintendent. “It’s a part of students growing up and learning how to treat people.” Harvey said the biggest problem is that students don’t report the incidents. Nondisclosure is a common choice among bullying victims, he said. In response to this problem, a service called Ancomm has been introduced to the Oxford schools. Ancomm, a confidential reporting system, encourages students to report incidents when they feel

Yearbook slated for April release date BY KAITIE HARRISON The Daily Mississippian

The 2011 edition of the Ole Miss yearbook is expected to grace bookshelves at the end of April, but the editor said she is keeping the theme of the annual on the hush. “The yearbook does have a theme,” said, Alex McDaniel, the editor of the yearbook. “It’s a surprise, but it has to do with the direction this university is going in and has been going in for some time.” Different from previous years, the 2011 yearbook, entitled The Ole Miss, which gave the school its nickname, will have personal stories from students, feature profiles and a creative design.

“A lot of things are different,” McDaniel said. “Instead of writing our own stories about the Greek organizations, we asked one person from each organization to write a personal essay for that fraternity or sorority and how it had an impact on their life. “We wanted different voices to be heard and have different perspectives from these organizations.” Yearbook writers interviewed groups and individuals from the community for the feature profiles. McDaniel said the profiles allow readers to more broadly enter the subjects’ lives. “We go to class every day,” McDaniel said. “We all have professors, and we kind of assume they don’t have any fun or have lives

outside of class. We only see one side. “A lot of what we aimed to do with this book was to kind of show the community the other side and show another perspective of life on this campus.” Graduate journalism student Callie Blackwell designed the yearbook. McDaniel said Blackwell’s work is impressive. “Everyone will be blown away by how beautiful this book is,” McDaniel said. “Her talent is endless, and she is the only person I wanted to have design this yearbook. To be completely honest, it’s amazing that she has the ability to take some vague idea about a story or idea or layout and bring it to life on screen. Not many people can do that.”

McDaniel said the yearbook is something different from years past and is approached in an unconventional way. “Nothing is to be expected because, honestly, it’s very different from most of the yearbooks that have been produced,” McDaniel said. “It doesn’t mean better or worse, but it’s approached in an unconventional way. “The staff and I knew early on that we didn’t want this book to be stereotypical and plagued by this university — we aren’t all hard drinkers, we don’t all party and not all girls are looking for a husband. We were really tired of students being pegged as one type of student. The stories we created were created with that in mind.”

Ahead of his time, or Porn 101? BY ANGELA ROGALSKI Columnist

T H E

Having an open mind is a good practice. Keeping the portal accessible to different ideas and varying opinions helps one see the broader picture, the horizon beyond the obvious. At least, so I’ve been told. And for the most part, I agree, but sometimes the clutter that enters this journalist’s brain begs for a “closed for renovations” sign, or at the bare minimum an “under construction” banner because of the spillway of information that floods in and attempts to throw a monkey wrench into the normal thought patterns. Such as the article I happened upon from CNN recently. The headline read: “University professor apologizes for sex-toy demonstration.” OK, I’ll have to admit, that one gummed up the wheels and stopped the process altogether. It seems that a North-

western University psychology professor allowed a couple to demonstrate a sex toy in front of students. According to the article, he apologized Saturday, expressing regret that his optional after-class production caused such a stir. At this point, all thought mechanisms began to react adversely as though watching John Holmes portray the Duke or something. The story went on to say that the professor hoped to teach students about sexual diversity and information from “real people.” I never thought of porn as being very diverse. The demonstration ostensibly followed a discussion about sexual preferences. It turns out, after reading another article in the Chicago Tribune about this new form of higher education, that the “real people” actually were

real, an engaged couple who apparently agreed to this supreme invasion of privacy, all in the name of education, of course. Totally closed! No more open mind, no more enlightened thinking. In fact, my life may never be the same. How, in the name of all that’s academically normal, could a person think watching hardcore porn would teach students about sexual diversity? About the only positive thing that could even attempt to come out of all this might be the old Oscar Wilde saying: “The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.” Well, most certainly this professor put himself and Northwestern University on the map. Granted, the professor is a researcher of human sexual-

ity and sexual orientation, but what happened to good oldfashioned classroom discussions and arguments? There are times when “show and tell” just doesn’t work in a situation. In the professor’s defense, he did say that the demonstration was impromptu, and he made a spur-of-the-moment decision to allow it. And while he feels no harm was done by the demonstration, he does regret the negative effect it has had on Northwestern, and he’ll never allow anything like that to happen again. OK, apology taken into consideration, but did you really think the university and the general public would chalk this one up to an unorthodox teaching manner?

Lifting as We Climb through Service BY COTEZ MOSS Columnist

When Dan Jones became chancellor of the University, he made a strong commitment to service within and beyond campus. Chancellor Jones should be commended for his commitment to serving others beyond the university community. Service has always been part of our DNA and what we value as a public institution. Over the last few years, we have furthered our commitment to ser-

vice, but I believe there’s much more work to be done, and there is no better time than now. Across the City of Oxford, Lafayette County and Mississippi, there are individuals in need, and we as an institution have the means and manpower to help them. According to the Mississippi Economic Policy Center, one in six Mississippi households suffered from food insecurity during 2009. That information is heartbreaking, but what shocks me the most is the drastic increase in the number of Mississippians living below the federal poverty line between 2008 and 2009, rising from 18.1 percent to 23.1 percent. These numbers caught my

attention and led me to question the role of higher education in solving community problems. Over the winter break, I spent a lot of time researching volunteer services at our institution to discover what Ole Miss is already doing to aid in solving community problems. I found a number of opportunities but had to search for them individually. It saddened me to the point that I immediately began researching what other institutions were doing in regard to service learning and providing students with volunteer opportunities to both gain practical experience and aid in solving community problems. The institutions observed were primarily schools in the

Southeastern Conference. I found that most offer a Center for Service Learning or an Office of Volunteer Services that seek to integrate community service into the classroom or provide students with volunteer opportunities. I am most saddened by the fact that there is no one location on the Ole Miss campus where students can learn about service learning and volunteer opportunities. I am also disappointed that we offer few to no courses linking community service to the course objectives. I know some departments and professors are working creatively to do this, and I commend them. The lessons we as students will gain from simply integrat-

ing service into the academic curriculum are invaluable. Not only that, but the difference we can make locally and the lives we will change are priceless. As we climb upward as an institution, we must lift others up with us. Mississippi, Lafayette County, and the City of Oxford need us to help lift them more than we realize. The lessons we as students can gain from serving others is more humbling to life’s journey for us than anything we will encounter. I believe that this is our moment. The time is right for Ole Miss to invest in service learning and create a venue where students can allow their passion for volunteering to integrate into their coursework.

they have been bullied or have been subjected to harassments and other disturbing occurrences on school grounds. Howington said the students have been trained how to use the system. Ancomm bridges the communication barrier between faculty and students. It is the nation’s first anonymous text and online-based reporting service. In conjunction with the Ancomm service, Oxford School District’s faculty is designing a teachers’ bullying project development program. The program educates teachers about the manner in which they should confront students and handle certain situations when faced with bullying or harassment situations. The adult reaction to bullying taking place is critical. With help from Ancomm and the bullying project development program, students and faculty can put a stop to bullying and harassment occurring in Oxford’s public schools. “The best success we have is when the students report to our resource officers,” Howington said. “We have great success dealing one-onone with these students. I sometimes share my own stories with them about being bullied in high school.” Harvey said their counselors and specialists are working hard to put a stop to bullying within the district. In Mississippi alone, six of eight cyber bullying cases were taken to federal court, some involving pornography and inappropriate text messaging. The cases were taken to court because children were being bullied or were bullying other classmates through the Internet, said Rhonda Smillie, Oxford High School Communicare counselor. “It is helpful to have the policy in place to deter bullying, but unfortunately this won’t completely stop it,” Smillie said.

Miss. House redistricting plan advances to Senate The Mississippi Legislature’s redistricting debate is now shifting to the Senate, where Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant has said he won’t automatically accept a plan passed by the Democratic-controlled House. Legislators are redrawing the 122 House districts and 52 Senate districts to reflect population changes revealed by the 2010 Census. They’re under time pressure because the new maps must be approved by the U.S. Justice Department, which checks to ensure that minority voting strength is not diluted. Lawmakers say the department could take up to 60 days to examine the plans, and

candidates face a June 1 deadline to qualify for this year’s legislative races. The House passed its own plan Friday, then returned to the Capitol briefly Saturday morning to remove a procedural block that had been placed on it. On a loud voice vote and with no debate, the House disposed of the motion to reconsider. That advances the House plan to the Senate. In the past, the House and Senate have accepted each other’s redistricting plans with little debate, but Bryant, who’s running for governor, has said repeatedly that he doesn’t think there should be such an agreement this year.

The Obama administration has appealed a judge’s order requiring regulators to act on seven drilling permit applications. The government filed court documents late Friday saying it may have to deny the applications if regulators must make a decision within 30 days as ordered. The order was issued by U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman, who overturned the administration’s moratorium on deepwater drilling after BP PLC’s oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The documents say the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement may not have enough time to help operators meet regulatory requirements to have the permits approved by the deadline.

Healthy Eating, A New Way to Live Your Life BY HANNAH VOHRA The Daily Mississippian

How to maintain healthy eating behaviors has become an overwhelming and mind-consuming dilemma. People are constantly surrounded with new eating fads that make it seem impossible to know which eating plan works or what healthy eating entails. Fortunately, there is a way to develop healthy eating habits and maintain a balanced diet while in college, and the answers are simple and basic. Melinda Wells Valliant, assistant professor of nutrition and hospital-

ity management, said that healthy eating habits form from having regular meals and snacks every day, which consist of various food groups. “The biggest thing is that people don’t pay attention to what they eat on a daily basis,” Valliant said. “People need to be honest with their habits in general.” Kathy B. Knight, associate professor of nutrition and hospitality management, recommended five key tips that college students should practice to develop and maintain healthy eating habits: exercise, avoid sweetened drinks and alcohol, drink water, eat at least five servings

of fruits and/or vegetables everyday and watch portion sizes. Knight and Valliant both emphasize the importance of exercising every day. Knight explains that it not only burns calories, but it also increases your metabolism. Valliant recommends at least 3060 minutes of cardiovascular activity on most days of the week. “Sugar is not the culprit to weight gain; it is the lack of exercise,” Valliant said. In order to sufficiently assess eating habits, Valliant recommended seeing a registered dietician, or visit the Web. “Weight control comes from tak-

ing the same number of calories in as out,” Knight said. This not only reiterates her point on the importance of exercise but also explains how important it is to be aware of how many calories are consumed. Knight also recommends assessing eating by consulting the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010, meeting with a physician or registered dietician or going to www.mypyramid.gov to find exact portion sizes that are right for individual caloric needs. Patricia Jenkins, an Ole Miss junior, said that she had a difficult time maintaining healthy eating

habits when she first came to college because she did not know about health and was uninformed. The way she ate was not much of a concern for her until a few months later when she found herself unsatisfied with the way she looked and felt. She saw a dietician right away and after a few weeks of hard work, she was well on her way to a healthier lifestyle. “Even though changing my ways to a healthier diet came as a challenge for me, it was well worth the cost,” Jenkins said. “I do not only look better, I feel better and have more energy.”

Stanley gets another shot at Ole Miss QB job

FILE PHOTO | The Daily Mississippian

BY PAUL KATOOL Sports Editor

Just before the 2010 Ole Miss football season began, Nathan Stanley was set to be the Rebels’ starting quarterback for the year. With few options for the season, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt elected to bring in controversial Oregon transfer Jeremiah Masoli to add some

depth to the position. Early in the Rebels’ season opener against Jacksonville State, Stanley found himself sitting on the bench as Masoli, a Heisman Trophy contender with the Ducks, quarterbacked the majority of one of the worst losses in Ole Miss football history. Things didn’t change as Masoli took control of the position during a trying year

for the Rebels on and off the field. “It was really tough; it was very hard for me,” Stanley said about losing his job. “I was very set back when it happened, but I mean when it happens it’s part of the job. Coach Nutt went with what he thought was best for the team at the time and that’s what he went with, and I just had to go with it. It’s over now — it’s behind me — and I’m looking forward.” In 2010, Stanley played spot duty in four games behind Masoli, completing 17-32 of passes for 261 yards with three touchdown passes and an interception. As he sat on the bench, Stanley said he briefly considered transferring before making what he called the “right decision” to stay in Oxford. Flash forward to this spring where Stanley will again compete for the job when spring football practice begins on March 28. This time, though, there’s even more competition for the position including rising junior Randall Mackey, junior college transfer Zack Stoudt and West Virginia rising sophomore transfer Barry Brunetti. “I don’t really buy into (the competition),” Stanley said. “I guess I would be lying if I said I didn’t. I’m more focused on what I have to do individually, what I need to work on, what I need to get better at. I guess I have now, on until spring and into camp to work on that.” For the 6-foot-5, 220-pound quarterback, work comes in many forms, such as shortening his stride when he throws and bolstering both his arm strength and accuracy. In addition, Stanley — along with his competition — must also learn a new offense as a result of the hiring of new offensive coordinator David Lee and wide re-

ceivers/passing game coordinator Gunter Brewer. “(The new offense) is coming along,” Stanley said. “There’s definitely some new terminology, and it’s definitely going to pay off.” But one of the toughest things for Stanley — and the rest of the Ole Miss team — has been dealing with a new, tougher mindset instilled by the coaches over the offseason. Stanley said this new mindset has manifested itself in many different ways, including early morning workouts, punishments and a new emphasis on accountability. “I will say it’s tough on all the guys,” Stanley said. “I think it’s what we need right

now. It’s only going to make us better in the long run. It’s tough at times, but I think a lot of guys have picked up and gotten their stuff together.” Regardless of any obstacles Stanley faces this spring, he fully believes he will be the Rebels’ starting signal-caller when Ole Miss opens up its season Sept. 9 against Brigham Young University. “You always have to have the mindset that you’re going to be out there and be the best,” Stanley said. “I want to go out there and be the guy. I finished the spring off how I wanted last year. I’m just going out there and taking it a day at a time and hopefully come out like I did last year.”

Ole Miss bats silenced in series loss to Tulane BY AUSTIN MILLER The Daily Mississippian

FRIDAY: OLE MISS 5, TULANE 1 Behind the arms of junior righthander Matt Crouse (3-0) and senior right-hander Jake Morgan, the Ole Miss baseball team (101) took the opening game of the weekend series with a 5-1 victory over Tulane (7-3) on a rainy Friday night. Crouse allowed one run on four hits in five innings before a 50-minute rain delay in the top of the sixth. Morgan took over from there, pitching four scoreless innings to earn his third save of the season. “It’s really neat to watch both those guys pitch,” Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco said. “Everybody talks about command and throwing strikes. When you get two guys with very good stuff and they show the command, it’s amazing how quickly they can get outs and get out of jams.” Senior outfielder Matt Tracy (2for-4, home run, 4 RBI) was the star of the game at the plate and in the field for Ole Miss. Tracy led a two-out rally in the first with his two-run homer to left, extending the Diamond Rebels’ lead to 3-0. After Tulane got a run back in the fourth, Tracy turned in a web gem to start the fifth as he made a fully extended dive on a ball hit down the right-field line. “I was running after (the ball) as hard as I could and I think the wind brought it back a little

matchup with the Razorbacks this year, an Ole Miss win, Buckner blocked eight shots to break the school record. “If we can get production across our front line, maybe we can stay a while in Atlanta,” Kennedy said. After a career night at Auburn with 30 points, freshman Dundrecous Nelson scored 10 points for the Rebels, while junior Terrance Henry contributed 13 points and four rebounds. Junior Rotnei Clarke led the Razorbacks with 26 points. With the win, Ole Miss turns its attention to the SEC Tournament, where the Rebels face the East’s No. 6 seed, South Carolina, on Thursday at 2:15 p.m. in Atlanta. The Gamecocks defeated the Rebels 79-73 on Feb. 22 in Columbia, S.C. Kennedy addressed his team’s chances of taking home the tournament title after Saturday’s game. “I’ve been here four years and two of the four years, a team that had to play four games in four days (won),” Kennedy said.

— actually I wasn’t sure if it was fair or foul — but I just dove and ended up catching it,” Tracy said. “(The catch) did hurt a little bit, though.” Senior catcher Miles Hamblin and senior first baseman Matt Smith reached base on back-toback hits in the eighth and scored on Tracy’s one-out, 2-RBI through Tulane’s drawn-in infield to give Ole Miss a 5-1 lead. SATURDAY: TULANE 4, OLE MISS 1 Ole Miss (10-2) managed only six hits and left nine runners on base in a 4-1 loss to Tulane (8-3) on Saturday night, as the Diamond Rebels dropped their first home contest of the 2011 season. Tulane freshman right-hander Randy LeBlanc, a 16th-round draft pick of the Florida Marlins

in 2010, struck out eight and gave up only one run on five hits before he left with an apparent injury in the fifth inning. Junior right-hander David Goforth (02) took the loss for the Diamond Rebels as he allowed four runs on seven hits in seven innings. Junior designated hitter Matt Snyder doubled and senior outfielder Matt Tracy singled to lead off the second, but LeBlanc stranded both Snyder and Tracy with three straight strikeouts to end the inning. Tulane carried the momentum into the third with senior outfielder Nick Boullosa’s three-run homer into the visitor’s bullpen. The Green Wave extended the lead to 4-0 in the fifth before the Diamond Rebels answered back in the bottom of the inning, when sophomore Tanner Mathis hit a

two-out RBI single to score sophomore Alex Yarbrough from second. After back-to-back walks to senior catcher Miles Hamblin and senior first baseman Matt Smith, Snyder came to the plate with the bases loaded and grounded out to end the fifth-inning inning rally. SUNDAY: TULANE 3, OLE MISS 1 For the first time this season, the Diamond Rebels (10-3) lost back-to-back games as Tulane (93) took the three-game weekend series with a 3-1 win in Sunday afternoon’s rubber match. Ole Miss out-hit Tulane 6-to-5 for the game, but Tulane’s offense proved more efficient. Other than senior outfielder Matt Tracy’s solo home run in the seventh, his second of the weekend, all of the Diamond Rebels’ hits were singles.

Junior designated hitter Jeremy Schaeffer, the Green Wave’s leading batter, and sophomore shortstop Garrett Cannizaro, a freshman all-conference selection from last year, provided the offense at the plate for Tulane. Schaeffer had a 3-for-4 game with three doubles and Cannizaro drove in all three of the Green Wave’s runs with a sacrifice fly in the second and a one-out, 2-RBI single in the fourth. Coming off a seven-inning shutout performance against Northwestern State on Tuesday, Tulane freshman Alex Byo (1-0) gave up only four hits, while walking none and striking out four in five scoreless innings for the win. Despite a strong outing in which he allowed three runs on four hits, junior left-hander Austin Wright (1-1) took the loss for the Dia-

Warren’s free throw percentage in 2010-11, which leads the NCAA

BY ALEX LAKE The Daily Mississippian

On senior day, Zach Graham and Chris Warren did something they have done plenty of times in their illustrious careers at Ole Miss: lead the Rebels to victory. Led by the pair of seniors, Ole Miss (19-12, 7-9 Southeastern Conference) defeated Arkansas 84-74 (18-12, 7-9 SEC) on Saturday in Oxford, and in doing so locked up the SEC West’s No. 3 seed at the SEC Tournament this week.

Both Warren and Graham, who were honored Saturday with oversized foam heads made in their likenesses, leave the Rebel program with records next to their names. Graham tied a school record on the afternoon by playing in his 132nd career game. Warren ends his career with the Rebels as one of the most prolific scorers in school history, and he has a free throw record that may not be touched for quite some time (93.5 percent). “A lot of the times, you get what you earn and (Graham and

Points Graham and Warren accounted for in their last game at the Tad Pad

Warren) earned that,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said. “It would’ve been a shame for them to not have played well and for us not to have left with a victory. Those kids have meant a lot to our program.” Warren, who was also honored with 300 fake beards passed out to students, ended his night with 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting, which included four threepointers. “The last game you want to play as well as you know, so I tried to keep a rhythm, keep a

sweat going and stay aggressive,” Warren said. Graham’s effort was impressive as well and resulted in 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting from the field with all five field goals being three-pointers. “Words can’t explain the support the fans have given us in four years. All I can say is thank you,” Graham said.
