AS board positions available nCAMPUS: Applications for open positions on the board of directors are now available at the AS offices By Marlayna Slaughterbeck Daily Titan Staff Writer
Associated Students plans to appoint three people by Sept. 22 to fill the current vacancies on its Board of Directors. Qualified students in the College of Human Development and Community Service, Natural Sciences and Mathematics and Engineering and Computer Sciences are encouraged to apply for a position on the AS board to serve as representatives for their respective schools. Mike Bourdaa, a graduate student and board representative from the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, said that he was unaware of many things happening on campus before serving on the Board of Directors. Bourdaa said that one of the greatest advantages to being on the board is that it has not only made him more aware of campus goings-on, but that it has also given him the chance to have a say in them. “It’s a great way to expose yourself to all the different things happening on campus,” Bourdaa said. “And if there are things you don’t like, well you have the opportunity to express that and maybe even help change them.” In addition to faculty parking privileges, Bourdaa went on to say that a position on the board doesn’t hurt your resume either. “It shows that you have not only taken classes and learned what’s required for your particular field, but that you’ve built connections and shown leadership as well,” he said. Bourdaa also said, however, that prospective applicants should be motivated by more than just acquiring a blurb for their resumes. Regarding a candidate’s proper perspective and motivation, Elliot Sacks, director of statewide affairs, echoed Bourdaa’s comments explaining that there are responsibilities and requirements that demand a certain level of dedication on the part of the board’s members. Sacks added that candidates will be evaluated, in large part, according to the time and energy they are willing to devote to the position. Some of those responsibilities include attending the weekly board meetings on Tuesday from 1:15 to 4 p.m. and committee meetings on Thursday from 1:15 to 3 p.m. During the elected/appointed term, members are also required to be enrolled in a minimum of six units as an undergraduate or three as a graduate student while maintaining a minimum grade-point average of 2.5. For more information, students are invited to stop by the Board Room in TSU 250A to talk with current board members or contact Director of Administration Evan Mooney at extension 4221 with questions. Applications are available in TSU 207. The deadline to apply is Friday, Sept. 22.

Making the Band
O-Town performs at Brea Mall for 3,000 fans
By Gus Garcia
Daily Titan Opinion Editor In an age where groups like *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys constantly break record sales and own the pop charts, an up-and-coming group may be joining them soon. O-Town, made up of former Cal State Fullerton student Trevor Penick, Erik-Michael Estrada, Dan Miller, Ashley Angel and Jacob Underwood performed Saturday morning at the Brea Mall where close to 3000 screaming fans came to show their support. Fans poured into the mall, eager to get a glimpse of the new group. Some
where carrying signs showing their support. “I think they’ll be bigger than *NSYNC because of the television show,” 15-year-old Zayra Martinez. said. “Fans are having the chance to get to know them personally and grow with them. They’re just great.” As the five made their way up on stage, the cheers became louder, some fans even burst into tears. The group opened with its hit single “All for Love,” which will, available in mid-October. “They are full musicians,” Lou Pearlman, the group’s manager, said. “They are more than just another boy
band. They all sing solos and all play different instruments.” Pearlman is happy with success of the group and is eager to see how good they’ll do. He anticipates the group to have great success in the future. “Let people just hear the album, then we’ll see how the sales do.” The five do in fact feel like a family but admit that they get on each other’s nerves from time to time. “We have gotten into one really big argument,” Underwood explained, “But the whole thing was dealt with within 15 minutes.”
Bookstore offers alternanRETAIL: Many instructors have used Little Professor for more than 10 years By Matt Capuano
Daily Titan Staff Writer Many students that have taken classes recently may recall having to trek off campus to a little bookstore to get their required books for class. The store, in question, is little literally. It’s called the Little Professor and has been offering an alternative to Titan Shops for 10 plus years. So what makes this bookstore different from all the other competitive bookstores, like Text
Mart, that surround CSUF and offer alternatives? The main difference is that professors actually go to the Little Professor and order their books for the semester. Professors have been doing this for years and have continued to do so. So why did professors leave Titan Shops and go to the Little Professor in the first place? If anyone asks any professor who uses Little Professor the answer is the same: “Because Titan Shops messed our book order up.” “I was annoyed. They screwed up my order and didn’t notify me. They would under order the books, so they would run out,” said American Studies Professor John Ibson. This was the sentiment of every professor

Concert under stars draws huge nEVENT: More than 4,000 people attended the Friday night concert on the Performing Arts Lawn By Cindy Bertea,

Rich Ascroft and Dana Meller perform at concert.
Reclining in matching director’s chairs, Peter and Carole Wilson, of Anaheim, shared a glass of fine wine, while waiting for the sun to drop below the horizon and the festivities to begin at last Friday’s Concert Under the Stars. Wilson, who works at Cal State Fullerton in Human Resources, said it was her first time attending the event. “This is a lovely evening.” Couples and families blanketed the Performing Arts Lawn to witness the 17th annual event, which drew approximately 4,000 attendees. Theater alumni and current musical theater students performed a musical revue of Cole Porter and George Gershwin songs written for the Broadway stage. CSUF President Milton Gordon said the
concert draw grew tremendously since it first began, noting that originally 200 to 300 people would attend. He said the casual atmosphere keeps community members and alumni returning. “We consider it a large picnic,” he said. “People love it.” Tables lined the center of the lawn, with distinguished guests, faculty and students enjoying a catered meal prior to the concert. Student Affairs sponsored a barbecue complete with hamburgers and hot dogs. “This is my second time coming to the concert, I really enjoy it—the food, service and the show,” said sophomore art major James Jung as he stood waiting in the barbecue line. Some guests opted to bring their own meals and share the evening with friends. Anaheim resident Ruth Nycum sat with her friend, Helen Hayner, toward the back of the lawn for an eyeful of the scene. She and Hayner, a Fullerton resident, are both CSUF retiree’s and they reminisced about the days when they used to work on campus in the library. “The library used to be at the bottom of Langsdorf Hall,” Nycum said. “We felt like moles coming out of there after work.”
While retiree’s remembered the past, several new students worked at the event. President’s Scholars Program recipients helped usher guests to their correct seats, while folding programs for the event. The scholars program awards tuition for four years to incoming freshman who show marked achievement in academic and community roles, like freshman math major Stephanie Proctor. She said she enjoyed the concert and is having a great time during her first year on campus. “I’m loving it, although the parking really isn’t that great,” she said. “But I love the campus, it’s not too big.” Fellow scholar Amy Bui agreed with Proctor about the friendly students, staff and faculty. “Everyone’s great,” she said. Once guests finished their meals and settled in for the concert, there was one group still working to ensure a pleasant evening— the Physical Plant custodial staff. While a sea of heads stared forward at the musical performance, custodian Rigo Aceves and his co-workers scanned the premises

Festival brings health-conscious people together nCOMMUNITY: L.A. Times Festival of Health brings information to people interested in well-being By Camille Jones
Daily Titan Staff Writer The second annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Health was held on Saturday and Sunday at USC’s University Park campus in Los Angeles. The event provided those who were interested in learning about physical and mental health with information on a variety of health-related topics. There was a fitness stage where aerobics instructor and Body Jam creator, Amy Hendel, encouraged some members of the audience and others surrounding the area to join in her session. Also on the fitness stage, belly dancer Aparecida enticed some audience members to join her in a “dance for body, mind and spirit”. The Brazilian born Aparecida teaches “The Goddess Body Prayer” in Malibu and Santa Monica. She explained how her performance connected with the themes of fitness and health promoted at the festival. Aparecida, with a Portuguese accent, explained that the movements involve “form and developing the core strength so that you come from that inner strength, and that makes you be able to be flexible and fluid and at the same time very strong.” Over on the main stage, the original fitness guru, Jack LaLanne, encouraged his audience to fight “bra hangover” with some simple upper-body
exercises that they could perform in their chairs. “It’s never too late,” he said. “Anything is possible. The only way you hurt this body is inactivity.” He continued, “If you put better fuel in your machine, it will be better.” Aside from the stages there were booths, booths and more booths providing brochures, information, free samples and tests from companies like Bally’s, Sparkletts drinking water, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the American Cancer Society, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation and Planned Parenthood. The Asthma and Allergy Medical Group screened for asthma. Blood pressure, diabetes and drug interaction screenings were available in the USC student union. USC doctors had a long line of people waiting to receive free skin cancer screenings. The Women’s Breast Center performed mammograms, the faculty and students of USC School of Dentistry performed oral exams, and the USC School of Obstetrics and Gynecology performed pregnancy tests free of charge. The California Physical Therapy Association performed free balance testing on those who wanted to try it, like Cheryl Hines of Los Angeles. Hines, who works in USC’s administration building, was walking around in the village when she decided to come and check out the festival and decided to get her balance tested while she was there. The test involved removing her shoes and standing on one leg with her eyes closed, while a therapist checked her balance. “I would say that I failed [the test],” Hines said, who was on her way to check out the Twin Peaks. “I

Allison Urias, a USC student, was working at a nearby booth, but decided to take a break with her friends and give the wall a try. She successfully made it all the way to the top in bare feet after climbing for 10 minutes. “It was a lot harder than I thought,” Urias said. “It gets slippery because the rocks are so smooth and your hands are sweating, [but] it was fun.” Live entertainers performed at the nearby entertainment stage, playing a mix of jazz, salsa, alternative rock, swing, flamenco and West African music. Aside from the music provided at the entertainment stage, a 10-member USC band accompanied three cheerleaders performing cheer routines.
The two-day festival included six stages, more than 100 health experts, 35 panel discussions, three keynote speakers, Olympic athletes, interactive demonstrations, more than 100 exhibitors and free health screenings. The Festival of Health was a day for those interested in learning about fitness, health and nutrition to come and be educated, and share their experiences with other people who felt similarly about mind and body wellness. According to Cal State Fullerton nutritionist, Ada Schulz, there is no better time than right now “to invest in our health and wellness.” “If you don’t want to burn out by the time you’re 30, now is the time to take care of yourself,” Schulz said. “You get one shot at a semi-healthy body.”
Brea Chamber of Commerce hosts gathernCOMMUNITY: Brea on Display gave people the chance to interact with local businesses and public service organizations By Camille Jones
Daily Titan Staff Writer For three hours last Wednesday, the Brea Chamber of Commerce and the city of Brea invited the public to inspect the organizations and services that function within the city. Brea on Display is an annual event that was held for the first time on the Birch Street Promenade in Downtown Brea. It was intended to be a way for the community to familiarize itself with the different people, businesses and public services that make up Brea. “It [the event] exposed people to businesses that they didn’t know about,” said Teresa Hulsizer, sales and marketing director for the Brea Chamber of Commerce. This was the first time the event was outside in a public area; however, it was not the first time the trade show-type event was open to the public. The afternoon of familiarization, food and music was a joint venture between the city of Brea and its Chamber of Commerce. It was meant to orient the chamber members with the public, while allowing the public to learn more about the working professionals that help make up the chamber. The event was also to be a fund-raiser for the chamber, which is a not-for-profit organization. A 50/50 raffle enabled the person with the winning ticket to take home half of the money raised and

give the chamber the other half. At the different booths there were more than just business cards, brochures and handshakes given out. Avon handed out samples of the products that the company is known for, like lipstick and perfume, but they also gave out information concerning the company’s business position in the community, as well as how it is doing its part in helping to increase breast cancer awareness. Silvia Benlian, Avon’s district sales manager for north Orange County and a chamber member, said the reasons for her company’s appearance at the event was to make awareness in the community. “We service the community of north Orange County for anyone who’s interested in buying or selling [products],” Benlian said. “We also have a breast cancer awareness program that we’re getting ready for in October. Avon was the first company to start it.” Between the selling of different products like last year’s candle and this year’s pen, plus the three-day walks that will be taking place around the nation next month, Avon has raised both awareness and $100,000,000 to help fight breast cancer. Henry Cardenas, of Advantage Care Chiropractic and a member of the chamber, performed massages. “My intention was to provide informational services to the people out there because most people have spinal problems and they don’t know where to go,” Cardenas said. “This is an opportunity for them to come and ask questions and meet us and I think that’s the hurdle.” Police Officers Roger Hall, Denise Weiland and K-9 dog Toby represented the police department that jointly serves the communities of Brea and Yorba Linda. Their reason for attending was not to recruit, but to allow the public to talk to and get to

Senior Catie Moore wanted out of her public relations major. “I hated it,” she said, wishing for a major that would partner her music and vocal skills with business savvy. “I was looking for a degree in something that would emphasize artistic, marketing and business skills,” she said. “This is perfect.” Moore’s wish has been granted as a new major concentration — entertainment and tourism studies — debuted this semester within three colleges: communications, business and economics, and the arts. The emphasis will familiarize students with all facets of entertainment, from the business and production side, to the creative aspects of the industry. Public relations major Paul Ahluwalia said, “I like knowing what’s going on behind the scenes.” This semester he enrolled in one of the required courses for the program, Introduction to Entertainment and Tourism Studies, or Comm 346. “It’s making the mystery of the business side, less mysterious,” Ahluwalia said. The class, taught by Assistant Communications Professor Cynthia King, covers the structure of entertainment entities and how they function. King collaborated with deans, faculty and staff to formulate the curriculum for the communications emphasis. The process of creating the concentration began last year. King said various hospitality and entertainment companies, whose members now form an advisory board to provide guidance, approached Cal State Fullerton. The board includes representatives from such recognizable companies as Paramount Studios, Disney and Marriott Hotels, among others. “The role [of the board] is to provide input regarding curriculum — what things should be covered to serve their needs — provide guest speakers, and also help coordinate events,” King said. Although classes for the concentration weren’t listed in the spring catalog, she noticed a positive response from students like the ex-public rela-
tions major Moore, even changing their program of study. Moore cited flexibility within the concentration as a decisive factor to switch her major, even though she is a senior this semester. Since the program is new, there are few specialized classes that she must take to fulfill her major requirements. Enrolled in Comm 346 along with Moore and Ahluwalia, entertainment studies major Angela Crawford has previous experience in the radio industry and said that the class reviews and supplements her existing knowledge. “The class has been interesting and informative, someone who doesn’t know this would benefit,” she said. Deans that helped create the concentration cited several reasons for the program’s importance. “Where we’re located, since the decline of aerospace, the arts as a field is the largest part of the economy in Southern California,” said Associate Dean of the College of the Arts Joe Arnold. Arnold said the concentration within his college is tailored to theater majors, who traditionally had to learn various business aspects through onthe-job training. With new classes like Theatre Management and Production Management, students gain knowledge about business aspects before pursuing their careers in theater. Besides field specialization, the concentration addresses the bounty of theme parks in the southern California area and the need for skilled behindthe-scenes employees. Associate Dean of the College of Business and Economics Thomas Johnson noted the symbiotic relationship between the commerce and entertainment sides of such venues. “Disney isn’t just the characters,” he said. “A lot of people are needed to see that records are kept properly — those people need some understanding of what makes good entertainment.” Although Johnson said that he “scratches his head” at some pieces of entertainment, he believes it is an essential component of everyday life. “It’s a part of the spice that keeps life interesting,” Johnson said. For Professor King, society’s pressing need for diversion is ushering in what she labeled an “Information Age.” “Everyone’s trying to make what they do interesting and fun,” she said. She noted that people spend a great amount of their time looking to be entertained and that it has essentially become a business unto itself. “So much of what drives our economy pervades our personal lives through entertainment,” King said. “From televangelists to corporate retreats, we look to be entertained

Community colleges offer students tech skills at cheapnTECHNOLOGY: The wide range of computer courses increase enrollment at community colleges
Some spend up to $50,000 on their car to look good By Darleene Barrientos
Daily Titan Asst. News Editor There are a vast number of aspects to the import car show circuit– the shows, the businesses, the web sites, even the girls. But all these different divisions of the whole import car show culture revolve around one thing– the cars. Within the import car show circuit are two kinds of cars. Show cars are cars designed to look good. Vince Santos, an 18-year-old Cal State Fullerton student, is proud of the car he has built. “It used to be a black color and all stock parts from the dealer,” Santos said. “It’s now blue with yellow pearl.” Santos’ car, a 1998 Volkswagen Beetle, is a light blue color and shines with an iridescent gleam from the yellow pearl layer of paint included with his paint job. A nice paint job is just one of the many things Santos has done to his car to make it stand out. “I first lowered the car, then mixed and matched body kit parts to modify the body,” he said. “I used Wings West side skirts, a front side from Japan, and two wings, one lower, one upper.” In addition to all that, Santos has bought an air intake and exhaust system, clear corners, and wheels. Having spent about $9,000 on his car so far, Santos has had to slow down on modifying his car more.
“I entered shows like Import Showoff before at Jamboree and the Shoreline Showoff,” Santos said. “But I got disqualified because I left my car alone; I was supposed to stay with it. I’m glad I got disqualified, though, because I have a lot more that I want to do with my car. I want to repaint it, redo the interior completely in white leather, and install a sound system.” With all his planned modifications, Santos expects to spend at least $15,000. “My parents think I’m wasting my money,” Santos said. “But I like the recognition, I like to know that my hard work didn’t go to waste.” Marc Fata, a 25-year-old senior marketing major, also has built a show car before. In 1992, Fata built his ‘92 Volkswagen Jetta as a show car. When he decided to try making his car not only look good, but go fast as well, he sold his Jetta and bought an Acura Integra. “It was a street legal race car,” Fata said. “It was show quality but it could race – ‘a show and go.’” Fata has entered in past shows like Import Showoff and has raced his car at the Ontario street races and Battle of the Imports. But Fata prefers building his car as a race car rather than a show car. “Anyone can make a car look good, but its biased,” Fata said. “Some people spend five grand on wheels, but don’t modify their interior, then they wonder why they didn’t win at Showoff. With a race car, you can’t cheat the clock.”
In the process of building a New Forms/AEM Civic tube chassey Honda Civic, Fata is concentrating on other details that don’t relate to show cars. To make his car as light as possible, he has replaced his stock parts with parts like a full carbon fiber front end, a carbon fiber dashboard, fiberglass doors, MR10 plexi-glass windows and a 1-gallon gas tank. “I’ve spent over $50,000 on this car so far,” Fata said. “It takes something special to make a car go150 or160 miles per hour down a track.” Ron Bergenholtz, team manager and owner of Bergenholtz racing, agrees with Fata. “With show cars, you know the results of your work immediately because you can see it,” Bergenholtz said. “But with a race car, you won’t know the results of your work until you get it on the track.” Bergenholtz, who has been racing since 1998, specializes in front-wheel drive technology. “Most drag racing is all-wheel drive,” Bergenholtz said. “But when you race with the front-wheel drive, you have to be really creative, because there’s always a lot of problem-solving involved.” Bergenholtz said that building a race car is more expensive because of the constant wear-and-tear on the car’s engine. “With show cars, you spend your money once and you’re done,” Bergenholtz said. “But with a race car, when the motor breaks, you gotta spend

Over 3,000 fans cluttered the Brea Mall on Saturday to watch a free O-Town concert. Fans made posters and wrote on their faces in appreciation of their favorite boy band.
n from page 1
After the performance, O-Town had the chance to see their family and held a private meeting where 50 contest winners had the chance to meet the band one-on-one. With pictures being taken, and fans asking for autograph after autograph, the boys said they where just happy for their success and had nothing but smiles on their faces. During the signing, O-Town serenaded Happy Birthday to an elderly woman who was wheeled in to meet the band. With all the success however, being known does have its downfall. Angel remembers getting to the Embassy Suites when he noticed that the building was constructed in a circle. All the rooms were facing a court. “Every time one of us looked out the window, someone was trying to look in,” Angel said. “I remember coming up the elevator which was made of glass and fans following me everywhere I went.” Penick recalls being out in the road and having a car filled with female fans follow them for close to 100 miles. The group recently visited Germany and for all, it was their first time there. Estrada remembers not being able to adapt to the time change. “We slept all day, stayed up all night, and we were eating breakfast for dinner,” Estrada said. “They do have the best pancakes, though.” Miller went through a lot to get here. After he was cut from the final eight, he said he was obviously upset. However, during the show, band member Ikaika Kahoano decided to quit the band.

that moved to the Little Professor. They said they were tired of unreliable service and wanted their students to benefit from that reliability. That is not to say that the Titan Shops gives bad service, but according to several professors “enough was enough.” The American Studies isn’t the only department that utilizes the Little Professor for books. The English department has been using the Little Professor for more than 10 years. “It was two years ago. It was the third week of school and my books were still not in. I called Titan Shops and they said that the book was out of print. So I called the Little Professor and they called around to all the local warehouses and found my book,” said English Professor Joan Smiley. “I tried
Pearlman then sat down with the group of four and asked what the next step was going to be. All four recommended Miller for the job and a couple of days later, Miller was given another chance. “It was really tough,” Miller explained, “I was going to learn the songs, all the dance steps, and still try to bond with the guys.” Miller feels he made up for lost time and quickly became part of the family.
All the members are very happy for their recent success. With screaming fans almost everywhere they go, the members have still remained down-to-earth. Local member Trevor Penick remains in contact with his friends from CSUF and from home. Amy Vadnais, a communications major, is very happy and proud of Penick. “He’s an awesome friend and he has remained very grounded,” she said.
Estrada feels that they are still ordinary people. He said that just because he can sing and dance, it doesn’t mean that he’s forgotten the morals taught to him by his parents. Angel is just enjoying doing what he loves to do. It is a dream come true he said. The members all agree, this is the peak in all of their lives.

But I’m going to stay with the Little Professor. I’ve been with them for 10 years and they have been good to me,” Ibson said “I feel like I owe it to them. After all, if it isn’t broke, why fix it?” For the English side of the issue, the answer is adamantly the same. “They have my business,” Smiley said. What about the student’s side of the issue? What do they think of having to go off campus to get their books? “I don’t mind going off campus, if it’s going to save me money,” Lawrence McMillian, an English
major, said. As far as the way the Titan Shops used to be, Jerry Olson, the Director of Titan Shops said, “I wasn’t even here when it happened. I came here from Cal State Fresno the fall of 1989. “We welcome competition. I feel that all the stores should carry the same books, and let the student decide where they will spend their money,” Olson said. “The decision shouldn’t be left up to the department.” Olson said he feels that the decision should ultimately be left up to the students. According to Rick Deitrick, the Senior Manager of the Book Division, Titan Shops is under new management from of the time that professors decided to use alternative bookstores. “The people who worked here during that time are gone,” Deitrick said. But Smiley gives another reason for the improvements: “Profit motive makes people work harder.”

Bill encourages students to be wary of credit nFINANCE: The senate bill is aimed at handling credit card marketing By Jamie K. Ayala
Daily Titan Staff Writer Students treating credit cards like candy and then ending up in the gutter of debt like the wrappers, has encouraged Sen.. Joseph Dunn, DGarden Grove to write a state bill. The bill, known as SB796, addresses credit card marketing practices on public college campuses. Dunn was alerted of the matter when a constituent sent a family member off to college and was angered by the influx of credit available at the campus and through home mailings. After follow-up research on the availability of credit provided by California Public Interest Research Group, who specializes in consumer research, Dunn opted to write the bill. “The bill is intended to curtail aggressive credit card marketing tactics,” Dunn said. “It is not the be-all, end-all solution — but it is a step in the right direction.” Tim Hutchison, president of Hutcor Enterprises, a company that sends credit card representatives to the college, said that the senator should look at the overview of credit card use instead of how it is marketed. “There are bigger issues to look at such as the high cost of tuition, books, and supplies that credit cards help fund. Why should we [marketers] be scrutinized and blamed for the mismanagement and use of money of students who are very aware of what they’re getting into?” Stefanie Williamson graduated in 1991 and is returning to school to get a Masters in English and a teaching credential in English and drama. She said that she got her first credit card 10 years ago from this

campus. She unfortunately earned herself bad credit, but feels that it was all part of a growing experience. “I have learned my lesson. Students should have the access to establishing credit,” Williamson said. “I was aware of credit card debt and knew my responsibilities.” VISA International and MasterCard International Inc., the two highest profiting credit card companies, are owned by more than 44,000 banks and financial institutions that market and issue their own products. Numerous credit card vendors are on campus throughout the academic year. Limited to permissible marketing on campus five days a month, three of which may be consecutive, middle-man companies such as College Credit Card Corporation, Frontline Event Marketing and Campus Dimensions find loopholes and abuse the process. The former companies coincidentally have the same contact number and name suggesting that they are a conglomerate of one company using three different names in order to be able to market for half a month at
a time. Sen.. Dunn said that the bill has already had an impact on campuses throughout California by way of credit card marketing examination and regulation. An alternative solution some universities have decided to make are exclusive deals with big banks such as MBNA and First USA, eliminating all other card marketers, yet causing a monopoly. Approvals for the use of Cal State Fullerton’s campus grounds are now handled through the Titan Shops. Chuck Kissel, Titan shops manager plans to re-organize and make sure frequent marketing is avoided. SB796 requires students to read a credit card educational brochure before being offered any free gifts, credit card and debt education materials to be included in any vendor bags, and credit card education and related financial literacy sessions to become a regular part of campus programs. The bill, which was introduced on February 1999, SB796 was amended several times before being passed by a 23-12 vote on August 25, 2000 and awaits Gov.. Davis’ approval.

Thousands suffer during Passengers of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority are forced to look for alternative ways for transportation By M att Capuano Talks broke off last Friday night, two hours before the midnight deadline in the Los Angeles Transit negotiations. At 12:01 a.m. the United Transportation Union, representing 4,400 Metropolitan Transport Authority (MTA) drivers, left their posts and began a strike that can affect thousands of commuters all over the Los Angeles area. So what have MTA officials and the union done to stop the strike? Nothing. They totally disregarded the 400,000 plus people who rely on the bus to get to work and back. On the table are several issues, including work rules, overtime and health insurance for the union members. This strike is selfish considering the average union member makes about $50,000 a year, and the average rider makes about minimum wage. Also, the MTA has millions of dollars wrapped up in their 2,000 buses on 200 routes, as well as 59 miles of
rail lines. Both sides are blaming each other for the situation, but both are at fault. Gone from the negotiations are the thousands of the city’s poorest residents who are severely affected from the strike. These residents are forced to find alternative ways to get to work and back, including carpools, cabs or if cabs are all full, people are forced to walk. Because of the untimely strike, close to 500,000 residents find that getting to work is a chore in itself. Along with the inconvenience, comes the issue of money. Many of the residents cannot afford to use other means to get where they are going. As it is monthly MTA bus and rail passes costs $42, but with the strike many residents are spending near that amount on a weekly basis. So what are the MTA and union doing about this? They are doing absolutely nothing, with negotiations constantly falling through because both sides cannot come to an agreement. The MTA pleads with the union to resume bargaining on Monday, but union officials rejected the offer, saying that they would only return to the bargaining table in Pasadena only when a state official summons them back. So what do the residents do during
this whole charade of negotiations? The only thing they can do now is to find another way to get to work and back. If that includes waking up earlier than usual to walk the long stretch to work, then that is what they will have to do. It is just unfortunate, because this situation could have been avoided. Both sides could have come to an agreement without punishing the thousands of residents that pay all their bills and wages. So what does the MTA do to repair the issue? Well, the answer isn’t cut and dry. They can’t simply raise fares because that would make the whole situation even worse. The Union purposes that the MTA cut back on their rail projects and use that extra money to meet the driver’s demands and increase the number of bus routes. That isn’t as simple as it sounds, because the MTA already has money put into these projects, and pulling out would result in money loss. It seems that no matter what they do there will be money loss, because as long as the buses are not running, the drivers as well as the MTA are losing money. Usually forgotten in money negotiations are the residents. The union and MTA didn’t realize that if they stopped running the buses that residents would
loss money as well. I noticed when I went to the MTA web page that there is a message saying "We apologize for the inconvenience and are working toward reaching an agreement with our unions that protects the interests of both our customers and valued union employees." It seems that both sides weren’t apparently concerned about the interests of its customers when they decided to go on strike. The Union just walked out Friday night, stopping the nation’s secondlargest bus system, and stranding thousands of people. So all the union members have converged on the bus routes picketing the conditions of their job, and preventing the MTA from using backup bus drivers to operate bus service all around the city. Both sides of the issue are at a stand still and it seems like there is no negotiation in the near future. So, residents are forced to pay obscene amounts of money to get to work and back. It just doesn’t make sense. The MTA and union need to return to the negotiation table and stop holding Los Angeles and its residents hostage. —Matt Capuano is a Daily Titan Staff Writer

exam a bit more challenging, it is just a slight tremor on the Richter scale of academics. Students who worry about this mandatory graduation requirement should focus their energies on passing midterms or writing papers, not this benign barometer of language skills. As a transfer student, I wasn’t aware such a thing even existed. I heard the acronym whispered in fear among my fellow transferees at a new student orientation last semester, and wondered why their voices quivered. I realized the anxious buzzing about the test was justified when I read through a packet of information regarding the EWP I received during
summer. The pamphlet contained sample questions, which upon first look, were deceptively simple. The more I read, the more I became confused. English, like all other languages, is complex and has many exceptions to the rules. I’m sure there are other students who, like myself, never received much formal training in English besides the requisite parts of speech spiel. As confusion took hold, I noticed the length and date for the exam--three hours, and on a Saturday? This was not looking good. Instead of prolonging my test date and ignoring the notice, I jumped in head first and returned my application
for the first available exam time. For the next month I combed web sites, searching for helpful grammar hints. Books I bought to study are still perched, dust-laden, on my desk. I decided to trust the writing skills I’ve amassed and hope for the best. I did not want to spend the remainder of summer buried under a pile of prepositional phrases and verb conjugations. With my academic self-discipline thrown out the window, I fastidiously studied the few sample questions in a futile attempt to prepare for the exam. As the test date drew closer, the butterflies fluttered faster. I tried to remember all the test-taking advice administered over the years: get a good
night’s sleep, eat right, and relax. Having followed the prescribed advice, I arrived early in an attempt to get a good seat--a large desktop to sprawl on, with no wobbly feet. For me, comfort is essential to enhanced test performance. My attempts at ensuring an agreeable atmosphere were dashed, though, as the test proctor ordered all of us outside of the McCarthy Hall classroom. Assigned seats were the order of the day--my butterflies were now on overdrive. The apprehension of the other students was apparent as we were ushered back into the classroom, one by one. Pencils tapped, knees bounced in anxiety, and pens rapidly clicked on

Test anxieties are not uncommon but can be overratBy Cindy Bertea With sweaty palms and a stomach full of butterflies, I nervously anticipated the day I was to take the Examination in Writing Proficiency test. Now that it has passed, I’m not quite sure what the fuss is all about. There is nothing to fear about the EWP. I feel sheepish knowing I let this test loom over me like a pending appointment to get my teeth drilled. Although I have heard that nonnative English speakers might find the
and off. The proctor distributed the tests and read explicit instructions. A cacophonous ripping sound echoed throughout the room as students opened their test packets to begin. "Piece of cake," I thought, scanning the pages and berating myself for the self-imposed agony over the exam. Finishing in two hours, I ceremoniously returned my finished test to the proctor, feeling victorious. Walking out to my car, my bright mood darkened quickly. Doesn’t my license expire soon? Here I go again. —Cindy Bertea is a Daily Titan Staff Writer

Titans make it six in a row nMEN’S SOCCER: Wins over Gonzaga and LMU led to Fila Cup title as team improves national ranking By Caesar Contreras Sports Editor

Ferrari’s goal in OT leads women to 32 nWOMEN’S SOCCER: Titans take Big West opener over rival 49ers and improve record to 4-4 on the season By Seth Keichline
Daily Titan Sports Editor Reduced to a field no more than 10 yards in length, Long Beach State played its final moments with its back against the wall. With both sides down to their last breath, the Titans attacked, firing shots as quickly as a Western gunslinger in a shootout. The gun fight ended when Titan junior defender Rachel Ferrari pulled the final trigger, her close-range shot killing the 49ers hopes for a hometown win. Ferrari’s overtime goal lifted the Cal State Fullerton women’s soccer team over LBSU, 3-2 in both teams’ Big West Conference opener on Saturday. “It was a real jumble in the [penalty] box,” Ferrari said of her goal. “It was havoc.” Four minutes into overtime, Titan junior midfielder Tennli Ulicny’s shot deflected into a crowd in the penalty box. Several shots and ricochets later, Ferrari’s foot found the ball, which she instantly shot into the net for the game-winning goal from five-yards out. “It was just a matter of being in the right place at the right time,” CSUF Head Coach Al Mistri said. The teams battled back and forth, with LBSU [3-3-1, 0-1 Big West] scoring the first goal 32 minutes into the match. Junior Caitlin Murphy scored from eight-yards out, with Jennifer Reott and Marcia Rewoldt credited for the assists. Eight minutes later, freshman forward Danielle Turnquist’s direct kick sailed from 25-yards out over the outstretched hands of LBSU goalie Jihan Elgazzar, her third goal of the season. The Titans [4-4, 1-0] took the lead 2-1 with less than eight minutes remaining in regulation when sophomore defender Lindsey Glick, who was questionable last week because of an injury, scored from 15-yards out. Just a minute later the 49ers came back when Reott scored an unassisted goal from five yards out, which deflected off of goalkeeper Marla Nelson’s hands.
Nelson, who recorded six saves for the Titans, said the Titans had the right frame of mind in overtime. “It’s just a matter of when you go into overtime and you know that the first team that scores is the winner,” Nelson said. “Your goal is to do everything you can to keep the ball out of our goal and get the ball in the net for us. You go hard for everything and don’t let anything get passed you. That was the frame of mind of the whole team.” In previous matches, the Titans used an aggressive offense in tight games, which weakened their defense and allowed late extra goals. Mistri and his staff changed theories on Saturday, moving Turnquist and Deena Miller back. “One of the reasons I think we won is because we strengthened our backfield and it was difficult for them to score,” Mistri said. “If worse comes to worse, we play for five years and the score is 0-0.” Mistri and his staff used their previous matches in preparation for Saturday’s battle. With 13 freshmen - several of them playing key roles and starting - it was expected the Titans would struggle to begin the season. For the first month of competition, Mistri concentrated on getting the freshmen playing time, finding the right formulas on offense and defense, and improving the team after every game. “The goal was to be ready for conference,” Mistri said. “There is nothing more rewarding for a group of people to set out and do something than to set a goal and achieve it. We set this date and to play away from home, the ladies did very well. To come back with a result like that is huge.” “[The game] was definitely a conference builder,” Nelson said. “It’s just what we needed. It’s what we wanted to do. It’s what we’ve been talking about when we were preparing for this game.” The victory improved the Titans to 2-1 overall record against LBSU. The teams have alternated wins the last three seasons. Titan sophomore Leah Sims, who rolled her ankle and missed most of the week in practice, started and played the entire game. “It was awesome to beat [LBSU] at their home, especially because they had so many fans that they made a big brunch thing. They were really excited to play us,” Ferrari said. CSUF’s next game comes this Friday at Titan Stadium against Hawaii at 7:00 p.m.

They may have been away from home, but it didn’t take long for the Cal State Fullerton’s men’s soccer team to get accustomed to the road as they captured the Loyola Marymount University Fila Cup this past weekend at LMU’s Sullivan Field. CSUF’s victories over Gonzaga University and the host Lions improved the Titans record to a perfect 6-0 on the season. “The guys did well,” Titan Head Coach Al Mistri said. “It’s good to see the team do this well.” With the pair of wins, CSUF improved from seventh to sixth in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll and from 13th to ninth in the Soccer America poll. Things got started on Friday with CSUF’s 4-3 overtime victory over the
Bulldogs. The Titans got off to a quick start in the game as senior forward Duncan Oughton scored his second and third goals of the season to give CSUF an early 2-0 lead. Forward Scott Bertram got one back for the Bulldogs right before the first half ended at 43:19 to make the game 2-1. But the Bulldogs didn’t quit there as they got two more goals, one from Scott Yuska at 62:56 and then another at 66:55 from Brian Ching to give the Bulldogs a 3-2 lead. The lead would be short-lived as Titan freshman Hector Orellana scored the first goal of his Titan career on a hard spinning shot that beat Bulldog goalkeeper Gunnar Magnusson at 70:02. “It was a tremendous goal by Orellana, “ Mistri said “Tremendous.” Titan midfielder Ricky Melendez got the assist on the goal, his third of the game. No other goals were scored as the teams went into overtime. In the OT, sophomore forward Brent Whitfield ended the game for CSUF as he took a David Dischner pass near the goal and beat Magnusson at 101:52. It was Whitfield’s second goal of the season. “It was a hard game but I felt we were the better team and in overtime I
think we proved it,” Mistri said. Josh Saunders earned his fourth win for the Titans as he made six saves in the game off 16 Bulldog shots. Magnusson made four saves off 25 CSUF shots with half of those shots coming off the feet of Dischner and Oughton. The victory was CSUF’s second OT win of the season as they defeated SMU 2-1 in OT on Sept. 3. On Sunday against the Lions, CSUF got caught off guard early as a bad Tim Donnelly pass found Lion forward Arturo Torres, who took the miscue and dribbled past three CSUF defenders and beat Titan goalkeeper Sean Rockwell at 6:42 of the first half. “We weren’t even awake and a bad pass by Donnelly goes to one of them,” Mistri said. “It was a gift.” Melendez got CSUF back in the game as he took an Art Ramirez pass and beat Lion goalkeeper Jerad Bailey at 15:14. Dischner gave CSUF the lead as he found himself all alone on the left side of the field and put one past Bailey for the 2-1 lead. The goal would prove to be the game winner as the Lions were shutdown the remainder of the game. Orellana did add his second goal of the weekend near the end of the game as Bailey came out of the goalkeeper box, which proved to be a mistake as Orellana made him pay and CSUF
won the game 3-1 and tournament title. At 6-0, CSUF now travels to Washington this upcoming Friday and Sunday to compete in the Washington Tournament with Washington and Portland University. Both teams competed in last year’s NCAA Playoffs and the Pilots at 4-0-1 are ranked 10th in the NSCAA. “It’s one of our toughest trips of the season, right next to the Clemson trip,” Mistri said.
—Titan midfielder David Dischner was named MVP of the Fila Cup tournament. During the two games he had one goal, one assist and 13 shots. —Named to the All-Tournament team from CSUF was Art Ramirez, Hector Orellana, Ricky Melendez and Duncan Oughton. —Overall, CSUF finished first with Gonzaga placing second, LMU third and Michigan State fourth in the tournament. —In a third national soccer poll, CSUF is ranked fifth in the NCAA Men’s Soccer Media Poll. They were ranked 13th last week.
