Two weeks ago, a group of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students at the K-State Salina Campus requested the Salina Campus Student Governing Association bring a transgender speaker in to address the student body. The motion was tabled for a week, then tabled again. It is scheduled to be discussed again on Tuesday. If approved, the group of LGBT students willhave permission to bring in Ryan Sallens, a female to male transgender who currently lives in Nebraska, to present in November during National Coming Out Week. Brian Koester, student body president at K-State Salina, said the motion was tabled last week so SGA members could think through the approval of the motion more. The biggest problem was that the group of students presenting the projected costs had requested money but had not explained where all of it would go. Koester also said the senators were concerned about whether or not students would want to have this speaker on campus. Danielle Roth, assistant

National Fire Prevention Week starts By Eli Neal Kansas State Collegian
Shortly before 3 pm on Saturday a flood in West Hall started an electrical fire. The fire started when the flood reached the buildings electric transformer, causing the transformer to short out. Randy Slover, K-State’s Fire Marshal, said that while the fire created a large amount of smoke there was no fire damage to the building outside of the transformer itself. West Hall residents were evacuated from the building, and given rooms in various dorms and Jardine apartments to stay in Saturday night until power was restored to the building. Interestingly enough, the fire in West Hall occurred just a day before the observance of National Fire Prevention Week , which started Sunday October 4th and ends Saturday October 10th. National Fire Prevention Week was first observed in 1922. The week was created by President Woodrow Wilson. President Wilson created the event on the 40th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which claimed over 250 lives and left 100,000 people homeless,

Children from the K-State Center for Child Development helped break ground on the new facility Friday morning. The current facility is located at the Jardine Apartment Complex.
Project to expand child care center begins By Michelle Thomas Kansas State Collegian
Wearing hardhats and using shovels with purple ribbon, K-State officials and children currently enrolled in the K-State Center for Child Development officially broke ground on a new facility on Friday. This $5 million project, six years in the making, will double the size of the existing center at Jardine Apartments. Currently, the Center for Child Development only serves 160 students, faculty and staff families. The new center will serve 230, decreasing the current waiting list and accommodating for the predicted growth of Manhattan’s population. The old facility was originally meant to function as student housing and has since deteriorated. In 1987, the K-State student government began supporting child care. Students paid for the original Jardine Child Development Center and allocated to keep the building up to child
care licensing codes. In July 2007 the center became an official K-State student life department. Debora Ring, director of the Center for Child Development, said in a press release that because the center no longer meets the needs of its parents, staff or children, the city commission and K-State mobilized funds to construct a new facility. At his first official ground-breaking as president, Kirk Shulz said upon accepting the position of K-State’s new president he was inundated with email comments about child care in Manhattan’s community. He said many KStaters told him it was challenging to find a quality facility for their children and that he believes this new center will be the answer to these worries. “We’re a student-centered university,” said Student Body President Dalton Henry, senior in agricultural economics and agricultural communications and journalism. “This is a perfect example of what it means to be that. It’s providing the services [the uni-
versity] needs to be successful.” In Sept. 2006, Bruce Snead, Manhattan City Commissioner, put together a task force that clearly identified child care as a priority due to the anticipated growth of Riley County. The Child Care Taskforce requested a federal earmark of $500,000, which will be used for this new building. “There is such a partnership between our city and our university,” Ring said. “And that is why this is able to happen today.” Pat Bosco, dean of student life, was scheduled
West Hall floods, students evacuated By Michael Shoemaker Kansas State Collegian
The residents of West Hall were evacuated at about 2:45 p.m. Saturday, after a fire alarm was pulled and staff received word of flooding in the basement. “A water main outside the building broke,” said Nick Lander, assistant director of residence life. “It’s just one of those things, pipes over time; occasionally they fail.” Lander said water flooded into an electrical room in the basement, causing smoke to rise. The flooding caused power to go out, and the building was evacuated. Lander also said that because the power and electricity went out, the building could not operate its fire safety equipment, making it
unsafe for residents to occupy the building. Kayla Matt, freshman in life sciences and West Hall community assistant, said power was restored to the building Sunday night, and residents began to move back into the building throughout the day on Monday. Residents were allowed time to go into the building and collect their belongings, but were told they would have to stay somewhere else for the night. “They told us we would have to find somewhere else to live for the next one to four days,” said Amy Montgomery, freshman in philosophy. “If we couldn’t find somewhere else to stay, K-State would relocate us to Jardine or one of the other dorm buildings.” Some students who were
not in the building during the incident were surprised by what took place while they were gone. “We were walking back towards West, and I noticed that all the lights were out,” said Craighton Carey, freshman in music education. “It’s an inconvenience, but it’s for the safety of the students.” Lander said Housing and Dining Services has been working on getting the building back up and running. “We don’t know exactly what the timeline is going to be at this point,” Lander said. “We have a priority list of what needs to happen in order so that we can get students back in as soon as possible. Obviously until the fire safety equipment is working, we can’t have students staying here.”

Red Cross to host blood drive this week By Melissa Short Kansas State Collegian
The American Red Cross will be sponsoring a campus-wide blood drive. There will be two locations to donate: the ballroom on the second floor of the K-State Student Union and the lobby of Putnam Hall. Any student, faculty member or Manhattan resident can go to either location to donate. The Union will be taking donors from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Friday. Putnam Hall will be open 3-8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. Kristy Ingalls, donor recruitment representative for The American Red Cross, said she suggests students allow 90 minutes for the whole process, but typically it can be done in about an hour. She also said that to avoid a long wait, it is best to go early in the morning or later at night.

Vendors offer recycled knickknacks at Pumpkin Patch Fair By Jason Miller Kansas State Collegian
Festive homemade decorations and jewelry, fall inspired baked goods and liquor bottles filled with lights were just some of the many crafts featured at the 36th annual Pumpkin Patch Arts and Craft Fair at CiCo Park this past weekend. The Mercy Health Center Auxiliary puts on the fair each year to raise money for various programs. Breaking away from the typical holiday decorations, some vendors began offering recycled glass bottles as decorative and functional pieces for the home. Vendors used a range of different bottles, from beer and liquor to olive oil and vinegar bottles. Inside Pottorf Hall at the Riley County Fairgrounds, Bill and Mary Girard, K-State employees, had one of their three tables entirely occupied by large glass bottles filled with lights and decorated for the holiday season. Jack Daniels whiskey, Grey Goose vodka, vinegar, beer and wine bottles glistened on the table in various colors as passers-by stopped to take in the sight. “We just decided one day to do it and see if it would sell,” Mary said. “Pretty much anything we can throw lights in, we throw lights in.” The pair became known at past craft fairs for their “snow families,” which are constructed in a wooded scene with light-strewn trees. They personalize them by painting the family name on a small mailbox in the scene and sell additional snow-people the family can buy as it grows. Before moving to bottles, the two tried their light-in-glass idea with architectural blocks. Mary said all they needed to do was drill a hole in the blocks and put the lights inside. “We’ve been putting lights into lots of different 532things to see how it works,” Bill said. The bottles sold very well for the Girard’s and have a low production cost since most are recycled from friends and family. Bill said when word got out that they were using liquor and wine bottles, they began coming home to empty bottles sitting in their driveway. “We need more big beer bottle drinkers,” Mary said, citing the hard time the two have trying to find empty 40-ounce beer bottles. The pair has been making crafts for nearly 30 years and has participated in the craft fair during the past 20 years. On the opposite side of the vendor area sat a bookshelf with glass soda and beer bottles on the shelves. Inside the soda bottles were pumps to be used for lotion or soap. There was also a group that had been set up to function as lamps. A bucket filled with wooden posts marked a “beer garden” appropriately with beer bottles attached was off to the side. “We actually started out putting bottles on wire (yard-art bugs), then we went to putting lotion pumpers inside them,” said Jim Mayfield, co-owner of Old Wire Road. Jim and Lindy Mayfield own Old Wire Road and have been a part of the craft fair for 27 years, missing only a few over the years.

The 36th annual Pumpkin Patch Arts and Craft Fair featured over 150 different vendors. Home decor, yard art and an assortment of baked goods were all featured the event in CiCo Park over the weekend. “We just always tried to make a buck,” Lindy said, laughing as she described the decision to use beer and soda bottles as home decorative articles. Old beer and soda bottles were not the only recycled items Old Wire Road offers for sale. Jim, a retired welding instructor, put his skills to use by handmaking metal signs created from old barrels. Jim got the barrels from a plant in El Dorado, Kan. Then he hammered them flat and cut and welded the metal to make custom signs. For the Mayfield family, the craft show circuit is a business; last year they participated in more than 25 shows. A few years ago, the Mayfield’s worked 35 or more shows a year, but next year they said they might attend just two or three shows, going only to the largest events possible. “Shows are down because of the economy; a few weeks ago we were in Colorado Springs, Colo., and even there, all the shows are kind of off this year,” Jim said.

The incident occurred in the 500 block of Kearney Street Saturday between 1:45 a.m. and 2:30 a.m., Crosby said.
Sales did not appear to be a problem at the Manhattan fair as hundreds of people milled about through the booths making purchases. Inside the cafeteria, the tables remained full most of the day as people stopped in for some hot food. Jolene Graham, the Mercy Health Center Auxiliary Treasurer, has been involved in the craft fair for more than five years, and said it is nice to see things being reused and not thrown away. “I like to recycle, that’s my personal opinion,” Graham said. “We’ve noticed it in going down to Howie’s [recycling center], we’ve noticed how business has picked up there when we go down.” Graham also commented on the constant flow of business into the cafeteria the health center offered. She said all the proceeds are dedicated for the Mary Lindquist Scholarship Fund. The scholarships are for Mercy hospital employees to better their educations.
fire | Events in Bosco Plaza today, Wednesday Continued from Page 1 as evidence for the need of the public to be informed of proper fire prevention and safety techniques. Since that time National Fire Prevention Week has been observed every year, and is now the longest running public health and safety event in the country. Slover said K-State has observed National Fire Prevention Week since at least 1948. While the school had observed the week for many decades, when he began working for KState nine years ago there were not any activities on campus in coloration with the event; it was at that time that they began planning activities to go along with the week, he said.
This week’s activities for fire prevention week will take place on the K-State campus Monday through Wednesday. Monday events were at the Derby Dining Center. On Tuesday and Wednesday fire safety activities will be located at Bosco Student Plaza between 10 am and 3 pm. The activities for each day will include fire extinguisher training, displays of fire-fighting equipment, as well as raffles for various door prizes. Slover said that there will also be large amounts of literature available to students on proper fire prevention techniques. Activities in correlation with Fire Prevention Week will take place on the Salina campus on Thursday from 10 am to 3 pm.
At the event Monday outside of Derby Hall, Manhattan Fire Marshal Ryan Almes explained some of the most important steps students can take to protect themselves from fire. He said the most important thing anyone can do is to ensure that they have working fire alarms. He said working smoke detectors increase your odds of surviving a home fire by 50 percent. Almes also said that students need to be particularly aware of the risk of fire when cooking. Cooking is the leading cause of home fires. Almes said that it is important to make sure someone is always attending to cooking at all times.

to the point
Fourum policy changed to increase relevance To the Point is an editorial selected and debated by the editorial board and written after a majority opinion is formed. This is the Collegian’s official opinion.
As much as some students enjoy repetitive comments about a red-headed Irishman, nonsensical one-word comments or excessive proclamations of “Chaos,” we at the Collegian feel these types of comments have diverted the Fourum from its purpose. The Fourum should foster social commentary, encourage discussion of local and campus issues and broadcast genuinely entertaining anecdotes. In the past, Fourum comments were printed in the order calls were received, and we printed as many comments, in that order, as we could fit onto the page.
The entire Fourum was then posted online. Comments containing vulgarities, racism, obscenity or libel were eliminated from the Fourum in print and online. To ensure that the best comments are printed each day, we have decided to change our policy. We will now pick the best Fourum comments each day to print and continue to post the complete Fourum online. We will continue to eliminate vulgar, racist, obscene and libelous comments in print and online. Some days we receive almost 100 calls to the Fourum and we generally have room for 20-30 comments in the paper, so how can you ensure your comment gets printed? First of all, it needs to be coherent; if we can’t understand your comment or it makes no sense, you probably won’t
see it in the paper. It needs to be relevant. The Fourum is a place for you to comment on stories, editorials and other issues that pertain to our community. If you are trying to be humorous, your comment should be genuinely funny. Inside jokes and one-word anecdotes usually don’t resonate too well with our readers. If you do not like something you read in the Collegian, if there is something in our community people should know about, if there is an issue you think should be discussed, or if you just saw the funniest thing of your life, call the Fourum and let us know. We’ll try to print it. The Fourum is your space in the Collegian. Please make the best of it.
The Campus Fourum is the Collegian’s anonymous call-in system. The Fourum is edited to eliminate vulgar, racist, obscene and libelous comments. The Collegian’s editorial board selects the most relevant, humorous or entertaining comments to be printed each day. The comments are not the opinion of the Collegian nor are they endorsed by the editorial staff.
Hey Fourum, quit putting K-State bashing stuff in there, or I will come there and rip the cord out of the wall! Do you know what they did to that chicken? Nope, but it is delicious. So, if you have a sibling that’s a hermaphrodite, do you have a brother or a sister? Dear Beth Mendenhall, I admire that you are so opposed to the destruction of male chickens that are considered “inconvenient.” I would be very much interested if you would write a column on abortion, whatever your views may be on the issue. Please do not stand and stare when you see Putnam 2 guys rocking the Putnam 2 customized Snuggies. They are legit. Dear Wildcat ID card, I should never have put you in my back pocket, because now I have lost you.

U.S. should find alternative energy source
Every day, the world is one step closer to having a full-out nuclear war. With a rise in the number of rogue nations acquiring nuclear weapons — Iran and North Korea, for example — and increased conflict between them, there has never been a better time to re-examine the United State’s nuclear role and mission. molly Instead of using our mcguire nuclear weapons as a deterrent and as part of our military arsenal, we should shift our current development of nuclear technology from weapons improvement to alternative energy development. For some, this may be seen as a concerning assertion; we live in a world where rogue nations are developing and testing nuclear weapons, after all. Their concern is valid. As the strongest nation in the world we should not put ourselves at risk of a nuclear attack. However, shifting our nuclear technology toward alternative energy does not put us in a vulnerable position for a nuclear attack. Our conventional weapons are definitely strong enough to conduct a strategic attack against any military installment. The truth of the matter is, our nuclear weapons are developed solely to be used in a war of attrition against a civilian population. Even in the early development of our nuclear weapons, we used our nuclear technology as weapons against a civilian population; we dropped atomic bombs
People always complain about Obama’s plan for change. Well, he never specified whether it would be change for the better. Yeah, I said it. Dear Jessica Hensley, I like your face above the Fourum better than Beth Mendenhall’s. Not because you’re prettier than her, but because your articles don’t make me want to kill myself. Dear Ron Prince, thank you. From: K-State.
Illustration by Erin Logan on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end the war of attrition with Japan at the end of WWII. Instead of making our nuclear technology a means of destruction like we did when we destroyed the lives of the innocent civilians living in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we should begin to use our nuclear technology as a means of creation. We should use our nuclear technology to create a safe, secure and reusable alternative energy. Right now, we are on the verge of developing new ways in which we can use our nuclear technology to develop a form of energy. However, we will never make any progress if we continue to not invest more in the development of our nuclear energy. We do not have to continue this standstill in our nuclear energy if we begin a shift in the United States’ nuclear mission and role from a focus on the improvement of nuclear weapons toward a development of nuclear energy. There are a multitude of advantages to developing nuclear weapons in our country; for example, creating new jobs and securing our energy infrastructure. Whenever there is a shift to the development of new technologies, there are new jobs that are created. This would be particularly beneficial for KState and our nuclear engineering pro-
gram, bringing more students to our program and prestige to our College of Engineering. According to a study by the Energy Watch Group in Germany, one of our main energy resources - coal - could be depleted as early as 2025. If we do not begin to shift toward alternative energy, we are going to be in a very dangerous dilemma in the next 15 years. There is no better time than now to begin this switch to alternative energy. While shifting our nuclear role and mission toward the development of nuclear energy is a good idea, the U.S. government is not going to make this shift on its own. We as a society, and as the future of our country, need to take proactive steps to ensure that we begin to make this shift. Samuel Brinton, senior in applied music and mechanical engineering, created a new branch of the campaign “Global Zero” on K-State’s campus. Keep you eyes peeled for this new organization on campus and show your support for a nuclear weapon free world by getting involved.

Socialist programs often beneficial, overlooked Many people are calling Barak Obama’s health care plan socialism and letting that be the reason they disapprove of it. I disagree with that being the main reason for disapproving of the plan. chuck A note: I do Fischer not think socialism is a good thing when implemented on everything, nor do I approve of Obama’s stand on many issues. With that being said, not all socialist plans are bad for the people. In fact, many socialistic programs are very beneficial to society. “Wait,” you say, “What did he just say?” You read that right. Not all aspects of socialism are bad, and many are actually beneficial to society. How can that be? Well, let’s look at what socialism is. Socialism is based on the
idea of equal access to resources in a society — aka egalitarianism. Basically, everyone benefits equally from the resources in a given society. So, an example of a socialistic idea would be the fire department. With a fire department, it doesn’t matter if you live in a multimillion-dollar mansion or an apartment with a leaky roof. When your house is on fire, they put out the fire to the best of their abilities. Everyone benefits from the same resource unless you live in a rural area, which would make your wait for the fire department to arrive significantly longer, though that is not the fire department’s fault. You eventually get help despite your distance from the fire station. “But Chuck,” you gasp, “that’s a horrible example because of the issue of distance, and someone in the country may lose their house during their wait for help.” Well, then consider the highway system. No matter your social status, you can drive on roads just as everyone else gets to drive on them. Yes, they may not be the nicest roads in the world, but you don’t have roads for just the high
social classes and roads specifically for the lower social classes. Everyone is using the same resource, the highway, no matter what their social status. Sounds kind of like everyone having equal access to a resource, which is one of the main ideas behind socialism. Hmm, interesting. Still not convinced that not all socialism ideas are bad? Let’s look at a few more. The post office is governmentowned, funded with taxes. Everyone can use it no matter their social status. Sure you have to pay a small fee to send a letter, but to receive a letter, you do not have to pay. Look at that, a service that is free and everyone can use. Need more yet? How about the great example of the public library? You may have to pay a small fee for a library card, but after that, you can use the library as much as you want with no reoccurring fee. Last time I checked, you did not have to be of a certain social level to use the library. We have, yet, another free service that everyone can use.
One more? Well, if you insist. To go along with the fire department, the police department is also beneficial to all social classes. Sure, police departments have been accused of racial profiling, but they still are beneficial for all people. Whether your mansion or your apartment is broken into, the police will still come investigate for free as a service to the public. Socialism may not be the best solution to any problem, but it should not be dismissed as being ineffective. All of the programs and services I listed above have been around for quite some time and must be effective, otherwise they would have been scrapped. Like I said earlier, I do not agree with Obama’s public healthcare plan, but don’t dismiss it just because it resembles socialism. Dismiss it because of what it will do to our country.

Cats show flashes of ‘Snyder Ball’ By Justin Nutter Kansas State Collegian
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - When the Wildcats took the field Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium, they did so against an Iowa State team that flat out embarrassed KState’s defensive unit a year ago. Last year in Manhattan, Cyclone quarterback Austen Arnaud — a redshirt sophomore in 2008 — set a school record with 440 passing yards and threw for three touchdowns in a losing effort in the regular season finale. K-State’s defense looked helpless against Iowa State’s aerial assault until the final gun ... literally. Arnaud hit R.J. Sumrall for a Cyclone touchdown as time expired in the fourth quarter — a fitting ending to the Ron Prince era. Arnaud went to work against K-State again on Saturday, but the end results were much different. The signal-caller managed just 164 yards - not even half of his total from last season’s matchup. He racked up 87 yards on the ground, but a significant chunk of those yards came because he had no open receivers and was forced to scramble. After tallying 626 yards of total offense against the Wildcats a year ago, Arnaud and the Cyclones put up just 371 yards in last weekend’s nail-biter. Many fans have noticed an improvement on K-State’s defense, now under the tutelage of Vic Koening and Chris Cosh, but Saturday’s results are the first real testament to what the co-coordinators have done in the little time they’ve had. The Wildcats are far from being the defensive force they were in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but if the current coaching staff sticks around, things will only get better. K-State’s offensive production, which head coach Bill Snyder has referred to as a “work in progress,” also seemed to take a big step forward in Kansas City, Mo. With sixth-year senior Grant Gregory starting under center for the first time this season, the Wildcat offense was able to do something it’s struggled to do all season: sustain drives and get the ball into the end zone. Gregory, a more fluid runner than previous starter Carson Coffman,

He totaled 40 rushing yards, but credited for 29 after being sacked once for an 11-yard loss, and he hit paydirt on a two-yard score to cap off the team’s first possession. As the defense continues to improve and the quarterback play becomes more two-demensional, the team will look more and more like a Bill Snyder team — especially if junior running back Daniel Thomas can continue to play at his current pace. This year’s squad is starting to show shades of the powerhouses of old, but, as Snyder has said many times, there’s still plenty of work to do. K-State will look to continue improvement in all facets when it takes on Texas Tech this Saturday in Lubbock, Texas. Kickoff is slated for 6 p.m.

Wildcats upended by second-ranked Longhorns By Justin Nutter Kansas State Collegian
The K-State volleyball team played arguably its most complete match of the season, but it wasn’t enough for an upset as the Wildcats (6-8, 0-4 Big 12 Conference) were swept by No. 2 Texas (11-0, 6-0) Friday night in Ahearn Field House. Neither team could gain the upper hand in the early going, as the squads jumped out to an 11-11 tie midway through the first set, but the Longhorns went on a 6-0 run to gain control. K-State got within three at 21-18, but that’s as close as the Wildcats could get as Texas capped off a 25-20 win for an early lead. The ensuing set got off to a similar start as K-State played the Longhorns even on their way to an 18-18 tie, but Texas broke the stalemate with a 4-0 run from which the Wildcats couldn’t recover. The teams continued to trade points, but the Longhorns eventually prevailed 25-21. It looked as though the Longhorns would run away with the third and final set when they jumped out to a 17-11 lead, but, as they had all night, the Wildcats battled back. A 6-1 run got them

The Wildcats were swept by the Longhorns. within a point, but a critical Wildcat service error killed the late rally and handed the momentum back to Texas. K-State wasn’t able to mount another comeback attempt as the Longhorns won 2521 to cap off the sweep. Between the two squads, six players reached double-digit kills on the night. Texas was led by AllAmerican outside hitter Destinee Hooker, who tallied 15, while Juliann Faucette and Ashley Engle added 12 and 10, respectively.
K-State was paced by junior outside hitter Vanessa Murray, who racked up 12 kills. Fellow outside hitters JuliAnne Chisholm, a junior, and Kathleen Ludwig, a redshirt freshman, each added 10. As a team, K-State maintained a .300 hitting percentage in the match, which is the highest percentage allowed by Texas all season. Although K-State was swept and is 0-4 in conference play after the loss, head coach Suzie Fritz said she was pleased with the way
her team played against one of the nation’s elite programs. “I’m not concerned about getting swept,” Fritz said. “I love hitting .300, which I think is tremendous, and I’m very encouraged by how we played tonight. I thought, offensively, that’s one of our best matches so far.” Fritz, the winningest coach in school history, also added that the Wildcats were often hurt by mental mistakes – such as untimely service errors – which the team will try to extinguish as the season continues. “Those are things that are within our control,” she said. “They’re things that we can effect change. I would much rather be in a situation where it’s things that we’re doing that we can correct. We know there’s a lot of little plays that are within our control.” K-State will continue conference action on Wednesday when it travels to College Station, Texas, for a showdown with the Texas A&M Aggies. First serve is set for 6:30 p.m. at G. Rollie White Coliseum.

tHE EDGE Hidden treasures
‘Pink’ campaign begins this week By Rebecca Brown Kansas State Collegian
Tough Enough to Wear Pink will kick off its fourth annual T-shirt drive today with this year’s slogan, “Treasure your Chest.” T-shirts will be available for sale until Friday, and special activities have been planned throughout the week, including a free barbecue and a guest speaker. Tough Enough to Wear Pink is a fundraiser that benefits the Susan G. Komen Foundation, a group that has become the largest donator of funds towards breast cancer research, giving more than $1.2 billion in the last 25 years. Each year, the members of Collegiate Cattlewomen and Sigma Alpha, an agricultural sorority, team up to organize this week-long fundraiser. The groups have donated more than $18,000 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation during the last three years, and have a goal of $13,000 for the 2009 fundraiser. The money is raised by selling pink T-shirts each year. T-shirts will be $10 and are available for sale this week in the K-State Student Union. The shirts will be on sale from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. “We are lucky to have students that get really pumped up and are loyal T-shirt buyers every year,” said Tera Rooney, T-shirt sales chairwoman and junior in animal sciences and industry. T-shirts can also be bought at the barbecue, which will be starting at noon on Thursday on Weber Hall’s lawn. Food is free for all who attend. Also in attendance at the barbecue will be a speaker from the foundation, Willie the Wildcat and several radio stations, along with an informational booth about breast cancer sponsored by Lafene Health Center. “We want everyone to know about and attend our event,” Rooney said. “We donate a lot of money as a student organization and to me that is very noteworthy.” According to the foundation’s Web site, it was founded in 1982 by Susan Komen while she was fighting breast cancer. She struggled with different treatments and surgeries for three years until she died. Since then, the foundation has been active in encouraging all women over 40 to receive regular mammograms and petitioning the government to finance breast cancer research. The foundation also sponsors the single largest fundraiser for breast cancer awareness, the Komen Race for the Cure. This race takes place in more than 125 cities and communities every year. The foundation works with different health organizations in more than 200 countries in order to raise breast cancer awareness and funding. The people at K-State can help this cause by purchasing a T-shirt. Collegiate Cattlewomen and Sigma Alpha purchase the T-shirts for only $4, which means for every T-shirt sold, $6 goes directly to the foundation. Rooney said she is passionate about this fundraiser not for our generation, but for the next. “I have nieces and nephews, and I really think that what we’re doing today will help their generation with the battle against breast cancer,” Rooney said. “If that doesn’t get you passionate about raising awareness, I don’t know what would.”

Thrift store shopping requires technique, patience Thrift shopping is all about finding hidden treasures. There is an art to thrift shopping, and you have to be willing to put the time into it to find the best results. The best thrift stores are diamonds in the rough, so do some research and find thrift stores in your area that you may not know exist. Jessie When you Dowell go into a thrift store, do not assume the great finds are at the front of the store. Thrift stores are not like retail chains and new merchandise is not always on display, so feel free to help yourself to the store. Be prepared to search through racks and bins of clothes and know you might not find anything you like or things that may not fit you perfectly, so be patient. Also, take cash with you because some thrift stores do not take debit and credit cards. One thing to keep in mind is that clothes you come across may not be in perfect condition. If you find something you really like and it is not up to par, you might need to alter it or fix little holes or sew buttons back on. However, look for obvious damage and stains because items like that are donated for a reason. Be sure to check zippers, tug on seams and check for holes in pockets or stains. Clothing in thrift stores is often donated simply because it does
not fit or flatter the original owner, or is a style they wanted to get rid of. Be careful when laundering and caring for clothes because some items might be more delicate or in poor shape,.Washing thrift clothes like you would the rest of your laundry might damage them. When it comes to washing a Tshirt that you bought at a thrift store, washing it along with normal laundry will do no harm. However, pay special attention when caring for lingerie, sweaters, dresses and blouses. The care labels are sometimes removed or torn out so, when in doubt, hand wash or dry clean. With delicate items, it is always best to hand wash, but with coats, embellished or heavily decorated sweaters and blouses, take them to a dry cleaner and ask the employees to handle with care.
Stay away from cheap looking jewelry. Often times, thrift stores carry one-of-a-kind pieces that need some extra care and cleaning after purchase. To clean, invest in a jewelry cleaner to remove dirt or to enhance the shine of the metal or stones. A few alternatives to jewelry cleaner are hydrogen peroxide or Coca-Cola. However, be careful with hydrogen peroxide because, while it may remove the buildup, it may also oxidize the metal and cause it to rust over time. Thrift stores are great resources for finding inexpensive and unique items. When you go into a thrift store, do not expect to find amazing one-of-a-kind pieces every time. Be patient and willing to sift through clothes before you find something special.

ENtertainment News “Real Housewives” star’s fiance killed Ashley “A.J.” Jewell, on-off fiance of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss and recurring figure on the show, was killed Saturday morning after sustaining head injuries in a brawl outside an Atlanta strip club. Jewell Burruss said in a statement Sunday that she is devastated by the loss. “I had spoken to A.J. two hours before I got the call that he was in
the hospital. Never in a thousand years did I think it was going to be the last time I heard his voice. He was taken way too soon. There are so many things that I should have said to him, wanted to say to him, but now it’s too late ...” Burruss, a Grammy-winning songwriter and performer, asked for prayers for A.J.’s six children and expressed her immeasurable gratitude for the outpouring of support. “I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of my family and friends — and that means my Twitter and Facebook friends as well — for the beautiful words of encouragement, prayers and the sweet condolences. I make it through these difficult days because of you,” Buress said. -eonline.com
Andrews’ stalker released on bail Michael David Barrett, the Illinois insurance peddler accused of stalking the ESPN reporter Erin Andrews and secretly videotaping her in the nude in her hotel room, was allowed to post a $4,500 bond following a hearing in Chicago. U.S. Magistrate Judge Arlander Andrews Keys ordered the 47-year-old Barrett confined to his home. He must wear an electronic ankle monitor and adhere to a daily curfew of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. He is allowed to leave to run er-
rands and go to work, however, he must unplug his Internet connection. The prohibitions will remain in effect until an Oct. 23 hearing in Los Angeles, where the charges were originally filed. According to an FBI affidavit, Barrett allegedly shadowed Andrews across the country in a “methodical” manner; he was able to get a hotel room adjacent to hers on two different occasions and he then used a tiny camera to shoot her in various states of undress before trying to sell the tape online. Barrett made at least seven videos of Andrews. The alleged Peeping Tom was caught only after he emailed TMZ last January attempting to sell his footage, and an employee there tipped off Andrews’ attorney, who in turn notified police. -eonline.com

CHILD | K-State begins child center expansion Continued from Page 1 to speak at the ceremony, but could not attend due to a family emergency. Renee Fehr, the president of the Center for Child Development Advisory Board, read a statement on his behalf saying: “Nontraditional students are too often underrepresented. But not any longer, not at our school. This should make us proud to be K-Staters.” The award-winning Gould Evans Architectural firm of Lawrence designed the new center, using research that demonstrated association between the physical environment, including acoustics, lighting and room layout with children and teacher retention. Therefore, the building will include a wall of windows that looks out onto a nature-based outdoor classroom area.

The children also had a say in how they wanted the center to be designed. An easel was set up behind the speaker’s platform that included pictures the children had drawn of what they wanted their new school to look like with their requests quoted on them. Notes included tall grass, a slide and purple carpet. “The dedication of the teachers is top-notch, but the physical facility does not meet the needs of children, parents and staff,” said Tracy Miesner, parent of a preschooler at the current center. “We feel the decision to continue to build the new center in light of the current economic setting speaks volumes about K-State’s commitment to the children of the Manhattan area.” The completion of the K-State Center for Child Development is slated for next July.

needs to let the speaker present, if only to show students it is necessary to expand their comfort zone. “If you never try anything new, what are you going to learn?” Hannah said. Hannah also supports allowing Sallens to speak to help the diversity of the campus, which he said does not have an organized or even an unorganized voice from the LGBT community. “This may be a comfort issue,” Hannah said. “Differentness should not be frightening.” The Salina SGA will hold its meeting at 8:30 p.m. in the College Conference Center.
opinions from the students on the speaker but has seen great levels of support from faculty and staff. Roth said she recently got a project called “Safe Zone” established in at the Salina campus, just as the Manhattan campus has. She said Sallens is a step in creating a safe environment for LGBT students. She also said the campus is very shy toward LGBT community members and in this case might not be ready for this speaker.

Jim Clark, pilot and local car dealership owner, soars through the sky above Junction City Saturday afternoon in an antique open cockpit biplane during an air show at Freeman Field.
Airplanes from multiple decades were displayed at Freeman Field in Junction City on Saturday. Jim Clark, owner of several local car dealerships, was also on-hand, giving 20-minute rides over Junction City in his 1928 open cockpit biplane for donations of $20 to the local Experimental Aircraft Association chapter. The show featured aircraft from the 1920s, 30s, 40s, 50s and 2000’s. Classic aircraft included the 1946 Piper Cub and the 1930 Inland Sport, a model of which only three exist and only one still flies. Private pilots owned the airplanes at the event and most had flown for years. John Frisbie, owner of a 1940 Taylorcraft, said he had gotten his love of aviation and the plane from his father,
who passed it down to him. He also said that he loved the integrity of his plane. “Simplicity is the key ingredient to reliability,” Frisbie said. Planes at the show were powered by engines ranging from 275 horsepower to as little as 85 horsepower. Kristen Lingg, junior in professional piloting at KState Salina, said she enjoyed the event because it was an opportunity for her to see aircraft that are gradually becoming more rare. She also said that her knowledge as a pilot made her particularly grateful for the chance to see the older planes. “People don’t realize the historic nature of them,” Lingg said, “It’s pretty awesome.” Airplanes were not the only aircraft on display. A helicopter was on display, and there was also a gyroplane, a new kind of aircraft
which is a mix between an airplane and a helicopter. Doug Wildhagen, owner of the gyroplane, said he had bought his in 2006 and enjoys it because it is not as affected by wind as a normal airplane and doesn’t stall like one. He also said his plane was different because he had been able to order it out of kit from Italy and put it together himself, for about $65,000. The added work of putting it together made him both more knowledgeable and more appreciative of it, he said. Wildhagen said he comes out to these kinds of events because he enjoys the people and the atmosphere they bring with them.
