Vol. 115 | No. 148



Senate to review candidates Danny Davis | Collegian

Photo Illustration by Chelsy Lueth Probable budget cuts may result in fewer sections of classes being offered. Consequently, the classes offered will likely be at or near capacity.

Potential budget cuts may affect class sizes Austin Enns | Collegian America’s economy has not recovered from the economic crisis that devastated the nation’s confidence in late 2008. Unemployment is still around 10 percent, and the stock market’s Dow Jones Industrial Average is still far below the 14,000 high set back in October 2007. Even though distance separates Kansas from the financial centers of the United States, the state has still been hit hard with declining tax revenues. This year Kansas has a budget shortfall of $500 million. In order to deal with this lack of funding, the state of Kansas has had to search for areas to cut funding in, and some of the targets for budget cuts might be universities like K-State. Dr. April Mason, provost for KState, said that last year the state had to cut some funding from KState and some of those cuts required classes to be combined, others had to be canceled, and some had to offered on a bi-semester basis. In order to prepare for potential cuts for next year, the central administration has searched out areas they could cut

lab courses not specific to freshman if they have below 10 students. In fact, Mason said the physics and English departments added classes to accommodate incoming freshmen. Mason stated most classes canceled are generally electives or for non-majors. If a class is necessary but has low enrollment, a teacher must justify the necessity to the department head, dean, and provost. Dr. Dan Kuester, director of undergraduate studies for economics, said the economics department had to go from five sections to four sections of microeconomics, and a few money and banking classes were consolidated. Kuester indicated the experience is still good but with a few more people then the professors would normally want. “There aren’t many classes we don’t teach at or near capacity, so if more cuts come down I don’t know where they come from,” Kuester said. “I think everybody’s concerned, but we’ve been proactive as a university. I don’t see much else we can do if we want to offer a complement of courses and there is a decrease in funding.”

Rental inspections will touch tenants, landlords Lauren Garrison | Collegian The Manhattan Department of Fire Services has recently begun the process of enforcing the new Residential Rental Licensing and Inspection Program Ordinance. The Manhattan City Commission passed the ordinance in September 2009 during a regular meeting of the commissioners. The purpose of the ordinance is to protect both the interests of tenants who are renting within the city, and to protect the interests of the landlords who own those properties. As part of the ordinance, all the dwelling units in the city that are not occupied by the owner of the property must have a license. A “dwelling unit,” as explained in the ordinance, is any single residential unit which provides complete, independent living facilities for one family. This includes apartments, apartments within a house, or houses which are rented out by tenants. The owners, or landlords, of these properties are required to buy a $20 license for each individual unit they own. “Every unit in Manhattan has to have a rental license,” said Kelsey Morgan, rental inspection secretary. “Basically, the rental inspection program was just started, but so far it’s working really well.” Morgan said at the beginning of April there was a meeting held at the Manhattan Fire Department Headquarters for landlords and property owners of Manhattan. At that first meeting, she said, the rental inspection program officials handed out packets of information about the new program. Also as part of the rental inspection program and the licensing process, owners must allow for a building official to inspect each dwelling they own. Whenever the license of a unit is renewed, there must be a routine inspection by an official to make sure the unit does not have

any violations. “Every year, we are required to come in and do a routine inspection of the unit,” said Rick Berry, rental inspection officer. Berry said there are several things the officials will be looking for, both tenant and landlord related. “One of the main issues that affects students is that by the ordinance, not more than four students or people that are unrelated can live in the same property,” he said. Berry said there have been several instances where more than six or seven unrelated tenants have been living in a unit. He said by the ordinance, if there are more than four unrelated persons living in a unit, the extra persons are required to leave. “Other than checking for the number of occupants in a dwelling, we will also make sure that there are smoke detectors in every bedroom and on every level of a property,” Berry said. He said the officials will also be inspecting whether tenants have removed the batteries from any of the smoke detectors within a unit for safety purposes. The officials will also be looking out for violations which are the landlord’s responsibility to take care of. “We will make sure that there is a minimum size fire extinguisher in each unit,” Berry said. “And another thing we will be checking for is the proper size for emergency escape windows in units.” He also said officials will be checking to see if each dwelling they inspect has proper trash receptacles with watertight lids for the tenants of the property. There are several other violations that the inspectors will also be looking for, which are all explained in the ordinance passed by the city. “If we go in and find no violations, there won’t have to be another inspection for five years for that unit,” Berry said.

Photo Illustration by Chelsy Lueth Apartments will be subject to inspection for violations by tenants and landlords. However, if violations are found, the officer establishes a time period in which the tenants and/or the owner of the dwelling must fix the problems. If the violation is resolved within the given time period, then the next inspection of that until will be three years after the original inspection date.

Student Senate is considering several resolutions at tonight’s senate meeting. Most of the resolutions concern appointments within SGA branches and committees. Most notable of the resolutions is one that contains appointments for the judicial branch. Five students were chosen by the Attorney General, David Starshak, senior in political science, and Student Body President Danny Unruh, junior in food science and industry and political science. As Chancellor of the Student Tribunal, they have chosen Mark Gruber, an offcampus representative. The resolution also lists appointments for the Student Review Board. In it, Jacelyn DeVreis, Greek representative, is named as the chair of the board. Senate will also review a resolution commending the K-State crops team for winning first place at the national crops contest. It competed against 22 teams in areas of laboratory, math, plant and seed identification and agronomic exam. According to the resolution, this is the second straight first place finish for the team. The team has placed in the top 10 for the past 12 years. Tonight’s meeting is the last senate meeting of the semester. Senate meets at 7 p.m. in the Big XII Room at the KState Student Union.

Armed robbery occurs collegian staff report

A Manhattan Taco Bell was robbed by two armed suspects on Tuesday, according to a report from the Riley County Police Department. The incident occurred at 8 a.m. at 1009 Limey Place, said RCPD Lt. Herb Crosby Jr. The suspects were armed with a knife, Crosby said, and entered into the building by breaking out the glass on the east door of the business. Once inside, the suspects confronted an employee with drawn knives and demanded money, according to a report from the RCPD. The employee was unable to positively identify suspects because they wore clothing that concealed their identity, said the report. However, another witness saw people who are believed to be the suspects running from the scene and believed one male was white and the other could be dark complected, said the report. One was thin and wore a dark hooded sweatshirt, hat and sunglasses; the other was heavier set and wearing a dark T-shirt, according to the report. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken and the victim was uninjured, said the report. Before the robbery, two males were seen in the ditch east of Tuttle Creek Blvd. and in the area of the Taco Bell as early as 7:30 a.m., said the report. And after the robbery two males were seen running across Tuttle Creek Blvd. west in the area of McCall Road, said the report. Anyone with information should contact Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office at 785-457-3353 or Riley County Crime Stoppers at 785-539-7777. A reward is being offered for information that lead to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible. Tips may remain anonymous.

Sampling the High Life

Aaron Eats: Harry’s provides fancy feast, reasonable prices

Harry’s has a highly visible location, right beside the Wareham Opera House along Poyntz Ave. It offers fine dining, a nice alternative for college students.

Harry’s HHHHH Restaurant review by Aaron Weiser Fine dining appeals to the more sophisticated side of our palate. A more costly meal deserves a more unique service and we come to expect that from these upscale establishments. Every established city needs a classy restaurant and Harry’s is just that. Harry’s has a nice option for making reservations online through the service of or it can always be done over the phone. With a table just a click away, it’s easy to find out what kind of availability there is for a certain day without ever leaving home. On arrival, Harry’s is a beautiful property. With large windows running the side and front of the building, there is so much light during the day and a very pretty night flows through at sunset. With ornate chandeliers and lavish wood trim, Harry’s is very much the classic hotel atmosphere from days past. Our server was promptly with us and our drinks and soup were ordered. Starting off the meal with soup is a lovely way to warm your appetite. Salads are crispy and fresh and light, but soup can really draw you in and the warmth makes you feel good inside. I chose to start with a cup of Cream of Tomato Basil soup. Not the grilled cheese style tomato soup, this was a hearty and chunky tomato soup. Rich and creamy with fresh basil and pepper it was a delight to ease into the meal with such a love-

ly soup. Sadly, I was informed upon ordering the entree I had chosen was sold out, and an on-the-spot decision took me to Harry’s Meatloaf. Originally planning on a very intricate dish, I was concerned I had settled and wasn’t going to be pleased. The meals came fairly quickly, and the aroma from the sauce on the meatloaf convinced me I had in fact, not made the wrong choice. It was a combination of ground beef, pork and veal that has been slow roasted, with a sweet tomato sauce, caramelized onions and a rich cabernet sauce. The meatloaf was layered between decadent garlic “smashed” potatoes and served with fresh sauteed asparagus all with that rich sauce. Each bite, trying to combine every flavor was just amazing. Even better, at a very good price of $15 I did not feel guilty at all about the dish. Finishing with dessert is always a great way to round off the night. Being able to indulge just a bit and leave with that sweet tooth conquered can make dinner such a delight. Fine restaurants that have a dessert chef or have very appealing desserts sometimes make up a tray for the servers and they will show it to your table, so you can see what in fact you are getting. We chose the black bottom pie and housemade cheesecake. The cheesecake was Amaretto and raspberry for the night and the flavors were just off the chart. A bit more crumbly than I would have liked, the cheesecake was delicious just not quite as perfect as the rest of the meal. The black bottom pie was a com-

Harry’s Meatloaf consists of a combination of meats layered with mashed potatoes. It is accompanied by asparagus and costs a quite reasonable $15. bination of chocolate espresso custard and vanilla rum custard with pie crumbles and a very fine piece of chocolate lattice. This dessert was much more impressive and overall very rich and thick. Harry’s manages the upscale restaurant feel but matches it with a very solid price level. Of course, the prime rib and the steaks are bordering $30 a plate, but they have a very nice menu of realistically priced options that are full of flavor and appeal to every appetite. Overall, with my soup at $4 and my dessert at $7,

the restaurant really isn’t much more expensive than local chain restaurants, and the atmosphere is so much more appealing. The restaurant promotes a feeling of importance and confidence. Taking a business deal there over lunch, I can only imagine, would be a great way to seal the deal. The “high life” boasts power, and that’s exactly what you feel when you dine at Harry’s.

Powercat Financial Counseling provides advice for students Danielle Spellmeier Powercat Financial Counseling Have you ever heard of Powercat Financial Counseling? If not, you’re really missing out on some free advice on money. With trained financial counselors that can give you one-on-one counseling, you can’t ask for much more, at least when it comes to financial counseling. Do you have questions? They’ve got

your financial answers. Powercat Financial Counseling provides free information to K-State students who need help with financial issues such as budgeting, credit use, saving, identity theft, investing, managing debt, and expenses during and after college. A few of the services include individual financial education sessions with a professional advisor or a trained peer financial counselor student volunteer; presentations over financial topics for student groups; information and educational materials on many personal finance issues; and useful links to financial resources for more information. The “Powercat Peer” financial counselors are K-State students trained to provide peer-to-peer financial counseling and workshops. All of this information

can be found at In a pamphlet I picked up about Powercat Financial Counseling, it goes into detail about the purpose of this organization. The purpose is to provide K-State students with the financial knowledge needed to achieve financial success both now and in the future. On the inside page of the pamphlet it gives a few money tips such as getting a free tutor at the Academic Assistance Center instead of dropping a class after the refund date; paying your bills on time; renting text books and not leaving utilities in your name after you move. A few of the online resources listed are,,, and mymoney. gov. All of these Web sites are free to use and to get information.

Another interesting fact I learned from it was roughly 84 percent of college students carry at least one credit card and 21 percent of college students carry a credit card balance of $3,000 to $7,000. These statistics were found on the side of the Powercat Financial Counseling pamphlet obtained from Sallie Mae. So if you need help with your financial issues, feel free to stop by for some free advice at the Office of Student Activities and Services found on the ground floor of the K-State Student Union to set up an appointment and learn about what you need to do to set yourself up for financial success.

‘Tis the Season

Letter from the President’s desk

Open House succeeds Danny Unruh Fellow Students,

Illustration by Erin Logan

Gift-giving uplifting, can be done any time Karen Ingram I was at the Sunset Zoo on Sunday, covering the Earth Day Music Festival for the Collegian. This is another good example of something that I probably would not have gotten around to doing if my editor hadn’t asked me to cover it. I love the zoo, but I don’t often think about going unless they have something going on that gets on the Collegian’s radar. That’s why I love my job. Something interesting happened to me while I was there. I was listening to Tom Chapin perform, having a good laugh over his funny songs, when he revealed to us that the didgeridoo he was playing was made out of PVC pipe. He then described how easy it is to make one. I was blown away. I had no idea how easy it was to make a didgeridoo,

and cheap. This got me thinking about what a cool gift idea one of those things would be. Being a broke college student, I’m often in the predicament around holidays and birthdays of being too poor to get decent gifts, which makes me feel like a jerk. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. “Karen, don’t kid yourself; you are a jerk.” You are correct. I’m an obnoxious one, too. But if there’s one endearing quality I’ve got, it’s the fact that I love to give presents to people. Love with a capital L. Who doesn’t get that warm, gooey sensation inside when a friend or family member is surprised by a truly thoughtful gift? It’s fun to give gifts to people. At any rate, the didgeridoo reminded me you don’t have to buy presents, because you can make some really cool stuff on a budget. I always seem to forget that around the holidays, probably because, like everyone else, I’m bombarded by commercials and jingles and images of credit cards. It’s daunting, not to mention very distracting from the true purpose of giving somebody

you care about a gift. The first person I thought of that I’d like to make a didgeridoo for is my sister. Unfortunately, her birthday is in December, so I’d still have to wait a long time before I could give her one, either for her birthday or for Christmas. “Well,” I thought. “I suppose I could poke around on the Internet and bookmark a few other homemade gift ideas. Maybe I can do an article about it next semester when the holidays start sneaking up on us again.” While I was doing that, I popped onto Facebook to check my messages, and by sheer coincidence, one of my friends had this for his status: “The first five people to respond get something fun and handmade from me! Pay It Forward: Craft Edition. ‘I promise to send something handmade to the first five people who leave a comment to this update. They must in turn, promise to post this and send something they made to the first 5 posters on their status. The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent within the year.’”

I literally laughed out loud. Here I was, disappointed that I was going to have more than six months to give a unique gift to my sister, and this simple status update reminded me I shouldn’t have to wait for an excuse to give someone a gift. Gift giving can be done any time of year, for no real reason. And it’s so easy to find cheap, handmade gift ideas with the power of the Internet. You can find out how to made a didgeridoo, beer bread, snow globes, and countless other things by just taking a few minutes to type something into Google. It’s fantastic, and none of this would have happened if I hadn’t taken the time to go to an Earth Day festival at the zoo. This is why it’s important to go out and experience new things. You learn from them, and it makes you a better person. Whether it’s for extra credit, homework, or just for the heck of it, everybody should make it a point to try something new. You never know what might come of it. Karen Ingram is a sophomore in English. Send comments to

Kansas high school deserves K-State votes Drew Morris Six high schools in the nation were picked to compete in a national video-making competition. Blue Valley Northwest High School of Overland Park, Kan., was one of those six selected. For those of you who don’t know, that’s one of the best high schools in Kansas City and has produced many successful K-State students. The competition is called the Race to the Top Commencement Challenge, and the winner of the competition has the honor of hosting President Barack Obama at their graduation ceremony this May. This competition provides a

unique opportunity for students to display their creativity and hard work on a national stage. Each high school was require to make a three-minute video that summed up why President Obama should choose their school. You can go online and view these videos and vote on them at www. The top three finalists will make it to the last stage, at which point President Obama will pick the winner. Each high school had a college producer/mentor, as well as a producer from Viacom. These people acted more like supervisors than additional workers. The mentor for BVNW was David Kaufman, senior in electronic media at K-State. “It was cool for me because I got to help out and teach them ways to go about putting together a story,” Kaufman said. “It was cool working with kids that were just trying to get into this sort of stuff. They had a good background of video

from their teachers, but it’s always good to learn that stuff from other people.” Kaufman described the event as three days of shooting, editing and producing a video. The BVNW production team focused on a family theme, saying that even though it’s a big school, there is a sense of family. According to Kaufman, Thursday consisted of planning and brainstorming for the video. The filming started at 6:30 a.m. Friday morning, and continued until 5 p.m. that evening. A spirit assembly was thrown for the video, enabling the entire school to participate. Saturday consisted of a day’s worth of editing which ended at 1 a.m. the following morning. Such hard work and dedication by high school students deserves our recognition. It’s important that we participate in a sense of community for Kansas’s high schools and cast our votes online. This puts Kansas education on the map

and helps students and teachers by gaining national attention. It’s really a win-win. The rules stipulated that the students could only film and edit for 10 hours each, leaving just enough time to plan out and execute a wellmade video. The time frame ran from Thursday, April 15, to Saturday, April 17. This is an incredible feat for high school students to pull off, something that deserves our respect and votes. The other schools involved are the Environmental Charter High School from Lawndale, Cal.; Kalamazoo Central High School from Kalamazoo, Mich.; Denver School of Science and Technology from Denver, Colo.; Clark Montessori Jr. and Sr. High School from Cincinnati, Ohio; and Maritime and Science Technology Senior High School from Miami, Fla. Drew Morris is a senior in journalism and mass communications. Send comments to

As we begin to wrap up the semester, I am pleased to say “Believing in You” has never meant more to me. Several recent accomplishments across the K-State campus have truly reaffirmed how rewarding it is to lead such a great student body. The crops team has done it again. Recently, they brought home their ninth national championship in the past 12 years. The team placed first in the laboratory, math and identification components, and second in the exam component of the competition. Congratulations to Coach Donnelly and his team. Keep up the great work. A special congratulations goes to Jackie Hartman, who has been named K-State’s first Director of Community Relations and Assistant to the President. Annie and I are pleased to welcome you back to campus and look forward to working with you in the future. This past weekend, I’m proud to say we showed future Wildcats what KState is all about at the annual All-University Open House. Thank you to everyone who decked out in purple and got involved in the festivities. Special thank you to Dr. Emily Lehning, Assistant Vice President of New Student Services, and Donnie Hampton, senior in management information systems. The day would not have been the same without your hard work and dedication. Make sure to stay tuned as City Commission begins to hold meetings to examine possible routes and the major needs for mass transit in the Manhattan area. Keep up the great work, K-Staters, and have a great week. Danny Unruh Student Body President

Bringing the Heat

Cats sweep Chicago State in midweek series Blake Thorson | Collegian

Paul Harris Paul Harris | Collegian When it comes to KState spring football, it is way too early to make legitimate predictions for the upcoming season. Nonetheless I will make an attempt to show how stupid or smart (lucky) I am by doing it anyway. Let’s start with Daniel Thomas. Thomas led the Big 12 in rushing yards last season. Mind you, Thomas never played running back at the Division-I or junior college level. I predict Thomas will not only eclipse last year’s totals, but he will also win the Doak Walker award for the nation’s top running back and be a first team All-American. Thomas looked stronger, faster, and more agile in this year’s spring game. Thomas needs to show NFL general managers that he can catch the ball out the backfield, but besides that, Thomas is a first-round pick talent. He is not fast by any stretch but bulls over defenders and always falls forward. The scary part is that he is making less cuts and moves even quicker up field. Oh yeah, the offensive line is also better. Brodrick Smith, the native of Garden City, Kan., sat out a year after transferring from Minnesota. There did not seem to be much rust for Smith as he looked amazing in the spring game. I think Smith will continue the great lineage of K-State wide receivers and win the Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year award. As great as Brandon Banks was, his size was a huge question mark, and it is hard to design your offense around someone who is 5-foot-6 inches tall. Smith provides the quarterback with a big-bodied target with great hands, something K-State has lacked for quite a while. I predict Smith will catch 70 balls and gain 800 yards. Carson Coffman will be the 2010 starter. Coffman looked great in the spring game. He looked comfortable in the pocket. This could be credited to a great offensive line who did not have to combat with blitzes. I did not see Collin Klein play because of an injury, but head coach Bill Snyder has always valued experience. It seems hard to believe Klein will win the job considering he could not beat out Grant Gregory last year whose shoulder was barely usable. Lastly, K-State will win the Big 12 North title. Thomas is the best back in the nation. The Wildcat defense is better than advertised, and the offense will be better as a whole. KState should have won the North a year early. Bo Pelini was completely outschemed by Snyder last year, but the offense was unable to overcome a couple of early scores by Nebraska. The Wildcats 2010 home schedule is favorable. Snyder is back, and this team is not outstanding by any stretch. There are plenty of questions, but if I trust one man to answer them, it is Snyder. The Big 12 is in a state of flux, and those players in the locker room have to feel comfortable after their near-North title. This team is going to be hungry to avenge its season-ending loss in Lincoln. Circle your calendars; October 7 is going to be the showdown where K-State cements itself as the best team in the North.

No. 20 K-State (29-10, 9-5) rebounded from two losses at Missouri on Sunday in grand fashion as it crushed Chicago State for the second straight day. The Wildcats outscored the Cougars 32-6 for the series after a 20-2 pounding on Wednesday followed up a 12-4 victory on Tuesday at Tointon Family Stadium. With a strong wind blowing out to left field, the Wildcats took full advantage and hammered a season-high four home runs and racked up 20 hits in only seven innings of the run-ruled contest. Wildcat starter Justin Lindsey was effective for three innings and picked up the win to move to 4-2 on the season as he allowed only one run on one hit with one walk and two strikeouts. Things got out of hand early for Cougar starter Austin McDowell as he lasted only one inning and gave up five runs on five hits to pick up the loss for Chicago State, who fell to 2-35 on the season. Senior Daniel Dellasega smacked a tworun double to get the Wildcats on the board, and sophomore Matt Giller, who had a career day at the plate, followed with a bases-clearing, three-run double to chase McDowell. Senior Adam Muenster, who stole his 15th base of the season earlier in the inning, picked up an RBI-single to score Giller and bring the Cats to a 6-0 lead after only an inning of play. After the Cougars picked up a run off Lindsey in the second inning, the Wildcats continued to hammer Chicago State pitching as they tacked on four more runs in the third inning to take a 10-1 lead. Giller deposited a solo-home run into the trees in left field to begin the inning, and junior Carter Jurica followed with an RBI-single with one out. Dellasega then cracked his second double of the day, scoring Jurica. He later scored on junior Kent Urban’s RBI-single. Muenster and freshman Blair DeBord would add home runs of their own in a five-run fifth inning, and freshman Tanner Witt jolted his second home run of the season during another five-run inning in the sixth to cap the Wildcat scoring. Seven Wildcats recorded multi-hit games, led by Muenster and Dellasega, who each had three. K-State also added five doubles to its four home runs and only struck out twice on the afternoon. DeBord and Giller each had four RBIs while Del-

Pitcher Kayvon Bahramzadeh stands on the mound and releases a pitch at Monday’s game.

The Wildcats also had seven players that scored at least two runs. Sophomore Nick Martini, who entered play as the Big 12’s leading hitter with a .439 batting average, added two hits and a run to push that mark to .441. Jurica’s RBI single pushed his team-leading total to 48. “I think yesterday we left some runners on base.” Muenster said. “Today we did a lot better job of getting those big hits with

runners on base.” The Wildcats will now travel to Norman, Okla., to face the Oklahoma Sooners in a crucial Big-12 series. Last season, the Sooners took two of three in Manhattan and punished the Wildcat pitching staff to the tune of 42 runs in the series. “We’ve got to be locked down and ready to go this weekend,” head coach Brad Hill said. “Offensively they can score in bunches. They’ve always done that against us.”


Female umpire excels at camp, makes Big 12 debut Justin Nutter | Collegian “You play ball like a girl!” As Hamilton “Ham” Porter taught us in “The Sandlot,” these are words ­— at least in the world of baseball — that no male baseball player ever wants to hear. Intended to call masculinity into question, it’s regarded by many who play the game as the worst insult imaginable. Okay, so nobody wants to be accused of playing like a girl, but what about umpiring like one? Ask Kate Walden that question, and she’ll sum it up for you in just four words. “It’s pretty freaking cool.” Walden, a Kansas native, has been around baseball for most of her life and decided early on that it wasn’t enough just to sit around and watch the action. After spending a year selling hot dogs to fans, she decided that her place was on the field. “I worked at the concessions stand down at 3 & 2 Ballpark in Johnson County for one year and saw the previous female umpire — the only one who had been out there. I thought that looked a lot more fun than working at a concessions stand.” That was in 1996. One year lat-

Kate Walden, thought to be the first female Big 12 baseball umpire, explains a decision at first base during the Wildcats’ game against Chicago State. er, after a talk with the local umpire supervisor, Walden was donning a mask and standing behind home plate. On a September weekend 13 years down the road, she arrived in Topeka for a threeday umpire clinic. “It’s called the Topeka Premier Umpire Camp,” she said. “You go out and work through differ-

ent clinics on technique, on the field, behind the plate. Then they have a bunch of JuCo and college teams come out. They just rotated the different groups of umpires out there.” Working with college teams was nothing new to Walden, as she had recently called some DivisionII games in the Mid-America In-

tercollegiate Athletics Association. But camp instructor Bob Homolka, an arts and sciences professor at K-State Salina and longtime collegiate umpire, thought she was capable of working at the next level. “She finished high at the camp when we ranked [the participants],” Homolka said. “I try to move those people on a little bit, so I rewarded her by giving her a game at Wichita State and KState.” Homolka set it up and Walden called the first Division-I game of her career when she took the field for the Shockers’ home opener against North Dakota on March 2. She made her Big 12 debut in the Wildcats’ 12-4 win over Chicago State on Tuesday. Although he couldn’t confirm it, Homolka believes the midweek game marked the first time a woman had ever called a Big 12 contest. He also added that, regardless of gender, Walden has all the tools to be a great umpire in the future. “I’ve been working in the Big 8 and Big 12 since 1973 and never have I seen a female,” he said. “You just don’t see it at this level around here. I just can’t recall, so I think she’s probably the first. She’s just a good umpire. I look for her to do well.”


Big 12 Championship play begins in Texas Danny Davis | Collegian The women’s tennis team starts Big 12 Championship play today. The Wildcats go in as the No. 8 seed and face Colorado as the No. 9 seed in Austin, Texas. During the regular season, Colorado beat the Wildcats 4-3. The Wildcats are coming off a home win to end their regular season. In both matches last weekend against Baylor and Texas Tech, the Wildcats failed to win a doubles match. “Clearly the No. 3 position was better [Sunday], No. 2 was better,” said head coach Steve Bietau. “The No. 3 match made two sloppy mistakes at the end that cost them the match.” He said that overall, he felt the doubles teams were getting better. Bietau said the No. 1 team of Antea Huljev, junior, and Karla Bo-

nacic, freshman, are making progress but shot themselves in the foot a few times. They are working to cope with playing under pressure. Bietau commended Huljev’s performance throughout the season. She shares a leadership role on the team with senior Natasha Vieira. While Huljev’s performance has varied throughout the season, she outworks everyone, he said. “She’s made it a lot easier for some of those freshmen to figure out the stuff they had to figure out,” Bietau said. “The group, I can’t really say enough about them.” This season, a trio of freshmen have posted the most wins. Bonacic has consistently improved, Bietau said. For last weekend’s matches, she was moved up in the singles lineup to position two from position three. In the matches, she defeated a ranked play-

er and won both matches. “Two has been our weak spot all year long, regardless of who we have there,” he said. “At that position we have the weakest record.” Bonacic said improvement has been her focus all season long after having surgery. She said that she did not expect to do so well due to the surgery, but it feels good. With her new position in the lineup, she said it was challenging. “I felt even more excited because I knew the players would be a little bit better so, for me, I liked that,” Bonacic said. “I like when the players are good. It makes me work harder.” Bonacic said she is excited for today’s match and is not nervous. During last year’s championships, Colorado defeated K-State in the first round. This season, K-State has its best conference record since 2006 at 4-7.

The Blue Party to party in Manhattan Thursday

Corene Brisendine | Collegian They have been on tour for three weeks circling the outer edges of the U.S. in attempts to drum up a following with their up-beat folk music. “We’ve always received a warm welcome in Manhattan,” said Reid Martin, leader of The Blue Party band. “Our biggest followings are in New Orleans, Milwaukee and Manhattan.” The Blue Party first came to Manhattan a year ago to perform at a house party at the last minute when their scheduled performance fell through, Martin said. He said he did not believe they performed well until they received an offer to play in a venue here after the word got out about their performance. The band has been establishing a following while touring for the past six months by setting up house parties when and where they can. “It’s so much easier to grow a following through

house parties,” Martin said. “Performing in a venue, it makes it really hard on a new band. We spent the first six months in New Orleans performing house parties and when we moved to the venues we brought a huge crowd with us.” The band plans to perform Thursday night at Pat’s Blue Ribbon, on Friday night they will be at a house party, and Saturday they will be playing for Fiji. While Pat’s is free the house parties will be charging admission. Martin said they plan to cut a CD once they finish their current tour and hope to have the CD out by August. “We aren’t trying to sign with a label,” Martin said. “We are trying to stay independent as long as possible.” They have samplings of their songs on their Web site and on My space at theblueparty.

Who is Ali Moore? • Account Executive for TracyLocke in Dallas, TX Working as an ad sales rep for the Collegian definitely gave me an advantage over other applicants during my job search. I had professional experience meeting deadlines, proofing ads and working both individually and as part of a team - all tasks I complete routinely at my current position with TracyLocke. My day-to-day interaction with Collegian clients and the internal creative staff made my transition from college to the advertising industry successful.

How did she get there? She worked as a sales rep for the K-State Collegian! We are accepting applications for summer and fall semesters until all positions are filled.
