Austin Enns | Collegian Italy’s uniqueness as a country resonates throughout its millennia of history, strategic location in the Mediterranean and its excellent food, setting the country apart from the rest of the world. On Thursday afternoon, Captain Mattia Zuzzi, an officer in the Italian army, spoke to a group of people about Italy and some of his personal experiences in the army. Zuzzi gave a broad overview of Italy. His topics ranging from national pastimes, “We have two passions: soccer, in which we won the World Cup last time, and Ferrari Formula One racing;” to Roman history, “Nobody else has ever conquered Britain;” to the Navy, “we’re the only country in Europe with two aircraft carriers.” One of the anecdotes focused on why the owner of the Ferrari car company, Enzio Ferrari, did not sell his business to Ford Motor Company in 1963. Zuzzi stated that Ford was only going to budget $100,000 to the racing arm of Ferrari’s company, and that was five times less than the amount Ferrari was currently spending. Ferrari decided to keep his company independent so he could chase his dream of designing a car that can “fly without leaving the ground.” Another area of focus for Zuzzi was Italy’s place in world affairs. Zuzzi said that Italy mainly focused on lands bordering the Mediterranean, like North Africa and the Middle East, because of Italy’s central-

ized location by the sea. For example, Italy obtains its gas from Libya, a North African country, in exchange partly for building roads and infrastructure. A section of the lecture was spent detailing some of Zuzzi’s personal connections with Italy’s present and past. His great grandfather, after whom he is named, fought in Italy’s war for independence, and Zuzzi spent some time serving his country in Afghanistan. Zuzzi showed a picture of a non-extremist member of the Taliban participating in a meeting of the local village’s elders, and stated that members of the Taliban’s political party are distinctive because of their long beards and black turbans. Robert Clark, associate professor in French, was appreciative that Zuzzi spent some time talking about his personal experiences, instead of just focusing on Italian trivia. “I enjoyed it. I think it’s always interesting to hear a different perspective on world events from someone who has experienced them first-hand,” Clark said. “It’s a great opportunity to hear a different point of view, especially a friendly, sympathetic one.” Markie Griffin, senior in art history, said that she found the discussion of Italian culture fascinating. Griffin said that her favorite part of the lecture was “when he was talking about the different parts of Italy and different places for tourism.”

Jeff Corwin speaks to packed house Thursday Karen Ingram | Collegian More than 300 people came to the Student Union’s Main Ballroom to see conservationist and TV icon Jeff Corwin on Thursday. Half an hour before the presentation was scheduled to begin, the line waiting outside stretched down the corridor. Copies of Corwin’s book, “100 Heartbeats,” quickly sold out. Representatives from the Sunset Zoo and the K-State Insect Zoo entertained people as they waited, showing them insects and snakes and answering questions. Corwin spoke at length about the plight of the planet, punctuating his message with stories about his childhood and his work that had the audience rolling in laughter. “He was hilarious,” said Kendra Fuller, junior in animal science biotechnology. “If he wasn’t a conservationist or a naturalist I’d have told him to be a stand-up comedian.” While many of his stories were funny, there were some serious notes as well. Corwin described how habitat loss, climate change, pollution, poaching and human population growth are

OPEN SATURDAYS 10AM-2PM

A new Student Senate for the 2010-11 term took office yesterday evening. To begin the meeting, former Speaker of Student Senate Amy Schultz, senior in biology, installed newly elected senators. Following the installation of the senators, former Student Body President Dalton Henry, senior in agricultural economics, agricultural communications and journalism, and former Vice President Wayne Stoskopf, senior in agribusiness, swore in the new president and vice president. Danny Unruh, junior in food science and political science, will serve as president and Annie Oliver, junior in life sciences, as vice president. Afterward, the senate had to elect a new speaker. Schultz presided over the meeting while candidates were nominated and gave speeches. The nominations for speaker were Molly McGuire, junior in political science; Michael Champlain, junior in political science; and Kyle Reynolds, junior in personal finance. The senate elected Reynolds 35-23 after a runoff vote between Reynolds and McGuire. Reynolds said he was running for speaker because he wanted to become more familiar with the members of senate. Serving in a full-time position would allow him to build relationships, he said. “It’s something I feel very comfortable doing and I feel qualified to do it,” Reynolds said. “I have the experience necessary to handle the internal affairs of this job.” Jessica Schultz, former chair of the Privilege Fee Committee, spoke in support of Reynolds. She said she supported him because he had a strong desire to be involved in informal discussions as he recognized the importance of them. Megan Deforce, junior in secondary education, said one of those informal discussions involved the Privilege Fee allocation to the K-State Student Union. New information had been brought forth out of committee and an agreement was reached between a few committee members and the Union outside of committee. When this was presented in senate, Reynolds spoke against the bill and in favor of returning it to committee so that all members could discuss it. “He recognized the hard work that was put into trying to reach an agreement in committee,” Deforce said. “He felt that everyone should be involved in the last step of the information-sharing process.” Reynolds spoke about some of his goals as speaker. He wants to foster a more open and positive relationship within senate, he said. Also, he wants the senate to have a better relationship with the Collegian and to establish an identity for the senate. Many students and community members have no idea what the senators are doing for students, he said.

One Day Without Shoes Tiffany Roney | Collegian More than 150 K-State students threw off their shoes to walk a barefoot mile, in support of TOMS Shoes’ campaign, One Day Without Shoes. The pack trekked from Bosco Plaza to City Park — talking, laughing

and trying their best to avoid pointy objects. Despite the discomfort of walking barefoot, Dustin Shaw, junior in fishery, wildlife and conservation management, said he enjoyed himself. “I just like walking around and having people wondering what

we’re doing. A couple people asked questions, and it was good to spread the knowledge about what’s going on,” Shaw said. That knowledge was the fact that hundreds of thousands of children around the world go without shoes every day — rain or snow, no

matter the terrain. Fortunately for those children, TOMS has come to the rescue. For every pair of shoes purchased from TOMS, the company donates a pair of new shoes to a child in Africa or South America. The barefoot walk supported this cause

in two ways: by raising awareness, and by raising money. The 90s band Hanson has pledged to donate $1 for each person across the U.S. who participates in barefoot walks. Emily Hays, junior in architecture, said she found the event’s setup ideal because students

were able to help children in need, by simply taking a walk. “I think this is a really powerful movement, so for me and my friends to be able to say we were supportive of the cause and we participated in the walk — it’s just great,” Hays said. Kate Hambleton, junior in theater and coorganizer of the event, said she was glad to see a “broad range of people” participate in the walk, because it showed anyone can become excited about the cause TOMS stands for. “When I first heard about TOMS, I was like, ‘That’s the coolest thing ever,’” Hambleton said. “Taking consumerism and using it to give to people who are less fortunate — I think that’s so wonderful. And the shoes are so cool-looking, so it’s like everybody wins.” The barefoot walk was held Thursday afternoon and ended with a free barbecue at City Park. For more information about how to get involved in other TOMS events visit toms.com. More than 150 students support TOMS Shoes by walking one mile from Bosco Plaza to City Park Thursday afternoon.

Clashes leave ‘Titans’ on the fence Nicholas Cage not a bad lieutenant “Bad Lieutenant” HHHHI Movie review by Patrick Bales

“Clash of the Titans” HHHII Movie review by Aaron Weiser

Louis Leterrier’s new action movie “Clash of the Titans” took its debut chunk out of the box office totals this week. Released on April 2, this remake of the 1981 film has been greeted not so favorably by critics. The movie follows the mythological story of Perseus quite closely. Born as the son of Zeus (Liam Neeson) and raised as a man, Perseus’ family is killed as mankind attempts to thwart the gods. Bound to vengeance by his fury, Perseus (Sam Worthington) joins up with others from Argos on a quest to save the land and defeat Hades. Struggling to learn who he himself is, man or god, and fighting for the lives of all those journeying beside him, Perseus travels to the very bounds of Hades and back. Given such an epic storyline, the director had more than an adequate share of action sequence with which to work. Combined with the power of modern special effects, “Clash of the Titans” simply takes away the breath. The design of the beasts and demons themselves is impressive. If anything about this movie or the vision of the director caught my attention, it was the complex beauty of every single enemy and foe. Shining in true contrast to its blocky predecessor, “Clash of the Titans” is proof that the awe-factor behind digitally reproducing a movie with such raw power is a great idea. In all its beauty and splendor, howev-

Urgent Care

er, “Clash of the Titans” still managed to fall short on a number of levels. While appealing to the eyes, the story line flowed awkwardly and felt forced. Attempting to smooth together a string of power-packed action sequences with emotional and captivating dialogue, the characters in “Clash of the Titans” seemed to absentmindedly care for one another as the need arose. Perseus went straight from fisherman to hero without even learning to fight, found true love with his guardian Io and apparently developed a very strong emotional bond to the rest of his party from Argos without any sort of time frame to do so. While trying to establish a romance between Perseus and his lifelong counterpart Io, the story behind the action falls slow. On the road to see the witches and by boat to Hades, I felt trapped in an awkward teenage love bubble Perseus was attempting to break out of by slaying the vilest beasts of the land. Although the story itself does not lend an extreme amount of difficulty to Perseus’ journey, I felt the director could have added more intensity to the idea of him falling short. “Clash of the Titans” is just a bit too straightforward. Throw in some plot twists, for heaven’s sake. All this is not to mention the extremely disappointing performance of the Kraken. With such an awesome portrayal of the fearsome beast, I truly expected a battle. And what a disappointment that expectation landed me. Following quite a battle with Medusa just outside Hades and the treacherous journey all the way back to Argos, it was an epic letdown. Aaron Weiser is a senior in economics.

Until I saw this film, I considered myself a Nicolas Cage hater. Granted, he was good in a few films like “Raising Arizona” and “Adaptation,” for the most part — especially in his action films — Nicolas Cage has been the weakest link in almost every movie in which he has starred. But after watching “Bad Lieutenant,” I’m willing to change my opinion just a bit. OK, here’s the thing: Cage is good only when he’s playing a crazy person. That’s it. If a director wants him to be a standup business executive-turned-father, forget about it. If, on the other hand, the director casts Cage to play a crooked cop who’s constantly cracked out on cocaine and heroin, that’s a different story. In fact, no one plays a character like that better than Cage. This loosely based remake stars Cage as Lt. Terence McDonough. After McDonough injures his back in the line of duty, his doctor prescribes him Vicodin to help ease the pain. Soon, McDonough gets off the Vicodin and moves on to a harder drug — cocaine. McDonough begins taking drugs from the evidence locker and fixing the drug reports. But once the department installs security cameras in the room, McDonough is forced to go out into the harsh underworld of New Orleans to find drugs for himself. At work, McDonough is put on a case involving a crime gang that executed an entire family. As he gets more and more desperate for drugs, he starts caring more about his next hit and less about actually solving the case. As I mentioned earlier, this is a loose remake. The original, directed by Abel Ferrera, came out in 1992 and starred Harvey Keitel as the “bad lieutenant.” The films have similar plotlines, but they are so different in terms of style that you could watch them back-to-back, and never feel like you watched the same movie twice. The main characters from each film are also very different. Keitel is the kind of dirty cop who secretly wants redemption while Cage’s “bad lieutenant” doesn’t care about redemption unless it involves smoking a crack pipe.

courtesy art

I much prefer this version to the original simply because Cage’s character never seems to regret anything. He knows he’s messed up, and he knows he has a problem with drugs, but he also knows that he’s not such a bad guy, and he really isn’t. Sure, he might cut off oxygen to an old woman in order to get information, and instead of busting drug dealers, he’ll just use them to score more drugs. But throughout the film, we see how he cares for a hooker (the smoking Eva Mendes) and how he passionately opposes any abuse administered to potential suspects or witnesses (well except for the whole restricting oxygen thing — the old lady has it coming anyway). I wouldn’t go so far as to call him a good guy, but he certainly could have been a lot worse. I honestly don’t know if I’ve seen a movie quite like this. Sure, there have been plenty of films dealing with corrupt cops, but Herzog puts a different spin on it. He embraces the dark comedic elements in the script, and makes some interesting direction choices. For instance, there’s one scene where Cage is hallucinating that iguanas are lying around a coffee table and, to include the audience in his paranoia, Herzog puts a camera right up against a lizard’s face. It’s the weirdest scene, but it works, because it takes you inside the head of a coked-out police officer. Overall, this is one crazy movie and it’s definitely not for everybody. But if you just want to see Cage let loose and deliver an ambitious performance where he spends a lot of his time leaning over a counter sniffing baby powder, this movie will not disappoint.

U.S. principles, freedoms often taken for granted

Process Due

Marshall B. Frey Former Massachusetts State Senator Robert A. Hall recently published a highly controversial article on his blog, “The Old Jarhead.” The article, which represents a conservative’s view on the current government, makes some valid points about the current state of our nation. After reading Hall’s article and carefully considering the points, I decided to write my own version of his rant. So here goes. I’m sick of waking up every day and hearing about the new health care we’ll be receiving. Look, I don’t want health care, and neither does anyone else that I talk to. I definitely do not want to pay for people to receive abortions or for some sex offender’s Viagra. Universal health care is a flawed idea, just like communism. If you want to see how that idea worked out, look at China or Russia. I’m sick of being told that it is my responsibility to support people who are out of work and too lazy to go look for a job. I don’t want to “spread the wealth.” I’m all for helping people. If your house gets blown down by a tornado or a hurricane, I’ll be there to help you put it back up. But I’m not about to pay for someone to sit on their rear all day, to wait for their welfare check to come in the mail, while I wake up at 5 every morning to go to work. I’m sick of my religion being tarnished and disrespected in public while people are handing out pornography on college campuses in exchange for Bibles. Hey, to each his own. I won’t disrespect your religion and you shouldn’t disrespect mine. Every person has the opportunity and capacity to believe in whatever they choose and to exercise their religion. So yes, I am going to pray in public schools. And I am going to believe God created the Heavens and the Earth in six days. But I am not going to criticize you for your religious views or holdings. You have your rights, just like I have mine. I’m sick of my generation’s sense of entitlement. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was the U.S. In fact, it took many great men and women to build this country into the way it was. Right now, our generation is faced with a huge challenge. In the coming years, we’re going to have to deal with an aging population, poor economic times and extensive resource-management issues. We can either buck up and ride and make the most of what we have, or we can sit back on our laurels and wait for someone else to come in and make decisions for us. Judging by the current state of the world, that somebody will most likely be China. And I can guarantee you none of us will like the way they run things. I’m sick of being told we can’t do anything about people like the terrorists in Guantanamo Bay because we have to honor their civil rights. I’m a supporter of civil rights, but not for terrorists. If you try to attack my country, you don’t have any civil rights. And if there isn’t doubt about whether or not you did it, there isn’t a need for a multi-million dollar trial in New York City. I can take care of that problem much more effectively cheaper. You might say I’m being politically incorrect, but I’m not going to lose any sleep over it at night. I’m sick of hearing the media trash our men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan, especially by left-wing liberals who wouldn’t even consider strapping on boots to put foot to tail for their country. What the men and women who serve in our armed forces do on a daily basis is one of the most honorable things a person can do in his or her lifetime. So enough. Let’s send the Michael Moores and the Fred Phelpses of this world home for good. Sure you have the right to free speech, but that doesn’t give you the right to picket a veteran’s funeral who died fighting for you so you could have that right. I’m mostly sick of watching the circus that is Congress parade through our media outlets and newspapers. Why do we tolerate politicians who admit they don’t care about the Constitution? Or why do we let Joe Biden drop the f-bomb on national television? If Dick Cheney or George Bush would have done that, people would have called for an impeachment. You would also think the death threats people sent to their legislators who voted for the health care bill would be a sign, but we can’t seem to figure that one out either. Look, I love the United States and the country that the generations before us fought and died for. I appreciate all the blood, sweat and toil my grandparents and their grandparents before them put into our freedom. But I am sick and tired of seeing people taking that freedom and liberty for granted and tarnishing our nation. Our generation is faced with one of the greatest challenges in the history of this country. Are you going to sit around and wait for someone to come in and make a decision for you, or are you going to do something about it?

Court should overturn Korematsu Beth Mendenhall Americans, take heed. The threat level is Orange. Constantly reminded of this fact as we travel through airports, one has to wonder what we are supposed to do differently, or why they even tell us at all. The answer takes a bit of thought, but here’s a shortcut: fear politics. Constant reminder of the everpresent specter of terrorism serves to justify federal policies invading civil liberties that otherwise wouldn’t fly. The threat level scale doesn’t do anything other than provide an artificial justification for policies the federal government would pursue anyway. While the Constitution usually provides a solid barrier against federal overstep, one giant loophole remains: the 1944 Supreme Court case Korematsu V. United States. The Korematsu case ruled the forceful internment of 110,000 Japanese-Americans during World War II, via Executive Order 9066, was justified by national security and military necessity. The internment was claimed necessary because some Japanese-Americans refused to swear loyalty to the United States, and the military wouldn’t have time to separate the loyal from the disloyal. As a result, the entire West Coast population of Japanese ancestry were forced from their homes, bringing only what they could carry and held in communal camps.

The court held discrimination based on race could be justified by “a compelling government interest” but must be “narrowly tailored” and use the “least restrictive means.” According to the majority opinion, mass internment met these standards of strict scrutiny. In the 1980s, UC San Diego professor Peter Irons discovered in the National Archives a series of memos indicating the federal government provided false information to the court by suppressing the categorical denial of any Japanese-American threat on the West Coast by the FBI and Office of Naval Intelligence. As a direct result, Korematsu’s case returned in 1984 to the U.S. District Court in Northern California, where his earlier conviction was overturned. The second case, however, did not overturn the 1944 precedent, but only addressed the particular facts of Korematsu’s conviction. The precedent established by Korematsu — the government can discriminate based on race in the name of national security — is still a “good law,” despite many opportunities to overturn and invalidate it in test cases about the Guantanamo Bay internment and military tribunals. As 1944 dissenting Justice Robert Jackson wrote in the original case, the court’s validation of racial discrimination based on the interests of national security — later revealed to be largely fabricated — remains “like a loaded weapon,” available to justify sweeping federal discrimination at any time. We live in an era with important similarities to WWII United States. Sept. 11 and subsequent terrorist attacks have, like Pearl Harbor, identified a clear threat against our national security that comes from a group with a shared racial and eth-

nic identity. Our country is populated with millions of people who share this identity. Those people are overwhelmingly patriotic, though an extremely small minority of dissenters likely exists. The wave of post-9/11 anti-Arab racism has revealed many citizens view this entire racial and ethnic group as threatening. These were the exact conditions which preceded forceful Japanese internment. Policies that discriminate based on race and ethnicity in the name of national security exist. The best example is profiling at airports and borders. Other examples are doubtless concealed — who do you think was most subject to the Bush-era warrantless wiretaps? The potential for harsher policies remains — another al-Qaida terrorist attack could easily trigger sweeping violations of civil liberties. Race and ethnicity can never be the basis for violations of civil liberties — they are not characteristics that cause or even correlate with loyalty or patriotism. The Korematsu precedent is a scar on the face of our Constitution, and should be invalidated by the Supreme Court. The impending retirement of Justice Paul Stevens presents a unique opportunity to shape the next Supreme Court. As citizens, we should take an active role in pressuring our politicians to only confirm a strong advocate of civil liberties and nondiscrimination. The internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII was a horrible mistake — only overturning the Korematsu decision can ensure it is one that we do not repeat.

to the point

kansas

Global awareness important 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.

The barefoot students walking from City Park to Bosco Plaza on Thursday accomplished more than a nice stroll — they increased awareness to problems in other countries. The walk was in support of a TOMS Shoes campaign, which raises both money and understanding of global issues. According to its Web site, TOMS shoes donates shoes to a child whenever someone purchases a pair. Barefoot children can catch ill-

nesses through the soil or be prohibited from attending schools where footwear is part of the dress code, according to the site. Improving health and education throughout the world is a great goal, and the Collegian editorial board commends K-State students who recognize this. With multiple pairs of shoes in our closets and lackadaisical attitudes toward school at times, we can forget there are people in the world who cannot even purchase one pair of shoes. As lucky as we are in the United States, we should remember those less fortunate than us.

collegian

The TOMS movement is not the only way students can raise money or awareness for others. If shoes are not your passion, we encourage you to find some way to benefit someone else, either through a charitable organization or a simple action. Just remember — you are making the world a better place, one step at a time.

Circle dance, drumming displays culture

Campus events celebrate help Native American Heritage Month Lauren Gocken | Collegian In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, the Native American Student Association has put together an afternoon of displays and activities to celebrate the different aspects of American Indian culture. The celebration will be held Monday in the Union Courtyard from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “We promote Native American events on campus so the K-State community can be exposed to the Native American culture,” said Georgia Perez, Native American Student Association adviser. “We do this to promote diversity and understanding on campus.” The highlight of the afternoon might be the Big Soldier Creek Singers and Dancers performance from noon to 1 p.m. The dancers are also set to perform from 7 — 9 p.m. in Forum Hall. From noon to 1 p.m., the first 100 people will have an opportunity to sample a Native American soup called “Three Sisters Soup.” Other activities include a Potawatomi native language performance; a Cherokee basket weaving instruction and display by Terra Coons; a display of carvings, bead and leatherwork by Mexican-American artist Michael J. Perez; and a native pottery display by Reubin IronhorseKent. The outcome of these events will hopefully bring about a better understanding of native cultures on campus and to promote diversity on campus, said Cameron Piercy, junior in political science and president of NASA. The afternoon’s events are free and open to the public. Additionally, a panel discussion featuring Chris Eyre — writer, director and producer of “Smoke Signals,” a critically acclaimed movie that deals with death, racism, religion and alcoholism in the Native American community — is scheduled for April 19 at 6:30 p.m. in Forum Hall. The evening will also include a viewing of Eyre’s film.

Matt Binter | Collegian Students in JohnElla Holmes’s American Ethnic studies 160 classes Thursday received a special presentation about American Indians. Leslie Hannah, associate professor at Northeastern State University and former assistant dean of academics at K-State-Salina, visited Holmes’s classes along with several students from NSU. The group demonstrated American Indian dances and drumming for K-State students and even led those who volunteered to participate in a American Indian circle dance. Hannah taught students some common

misconceptions about American Indian culture as well as some of their traditional customs. Hannah explained a game called Indian stick ball that arguing tribes would play in order to settle disputes. Players used sticks with small nets to hurl a ball toward the top of a post with a fish on top, scoring points depending on how close to the fish the ball hit. Stick ball is an aggressive sport that occasionally ended fatally. The game is also the originating influence for lacrosse. The group will be performing a free powwow exhibition Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Student Life Center of the K-State-Salina campus as part of the Diversity Summit 2010.

Athletes too heavily scrutinized

friday, april 9, 2010

On the Fly Baseball returns home for series against Huskers Justin Nutter | Collegian

Aaron Weiser A majority of sportscasters have recently focused their opinions and talk shows on Tiger Woods and his personal life. The sports world has talked about Woods nonstop since a flub of choices led the golfer down the road to ruin. There have been many articles published trying to explain the burdensome lifestyle of the professional athlete. Spending more months on the road than at home and working on relationships from afar, it is not surprising that human beings make mistakes. I am not in any way, shape or form condoning this behavior. However, I feel the public has, over the past decade, changed — in an ugly way — how we handle this information. First and foremost, individuals have more responsibility to their families than to the public. Given the tremendous amount of pressure they are under to try and fix things in their own lives, the public outcry for an apology is absurd. Does not the old adage ring true that the person will be the most hard on themselves? Public figures like Tiger Woods do not just attain such a status overnight, nor do they dismantle it without regret and self-loathing. The plain fact of the matter though, is that we are destroying the lives of those who we have lovingly followed for so long. We make mistakes every single day, whether on the same playing field or not, and we ought to be scrutinized just as much, according to our standards. It would be bold to say that we, too, would not want to maintain our own level of privacy in dealing with such a sensitive matter. We already try to hide our own unfortunate choices from our friends — can you imagine everyone finding out your darkest secret across the nation? My point however, is not to object to the criticism for such an error but to the gross overemphasis we place on it as a society. Digging into other people’s lives is not neighborly at all. Why have the masses become such grubby little lie-seekers? This continued destruction of role models in sports has a second and more devastating consequence — the removal of heroes for the children of our time. Not to say that role models living a life of distaste are good for children, but that seeking to uncover every truth in life has produced a much greater level of scandal in our day and age. The boyhood heroes from generations past were not always the wonderful truth-tellers either, but they still managed to inspire many. Letting athletes play their game and letting them deal with their own troubles should be not so overlooked. While agreeably, when such incidents become public, they cannot necessarily skirt around it. Looking for the worst in people is a characteristic of jealousy and insecurity and has weaseled its way into almost every sport. The fans want to see the game — that’s why they watch and that’s what they expect to see. The time for drama and soap opera lifestyles is not on the field, in the rink or at the court, but at home in privacy. Aaron Weiser is a senior in economics. Please send comments to sports@spub.ksu.edu.

After struggling through a three-game series in Lubbock, Texas, last weekend, the K-State baseball team has returned to the friendly confines of the Little Apple for a trio of games against Nebraska. The No. 20 Wildcats (21-5, 4-2), will look to bounce back from their first conference loss of the season as they dropped two of three to the Red Raiders on April 1-3. K-State had fared well away from home entering the series, but according to head coach Brad Hill, Big 12 road competition is a totally different animal. “When you get on the road, sometimes it’s a scramble,” Hill said. “Everybody wants to protect their home turf. Tech came out really aggressively and I don’t think we responded very well.” Despite ineffective pitching in each game, the Wildcats were able to mount a comeback and win the series finale 10-6. Hill, who is in his seventh season in Manhattan, said he hopes the come-from-behind victory will provide K-State with some momentum as they take the field against the Huskers. “The way we played all weekend, we could have easily cashed our chips in and came home with our tail between our legs, but we didn’t do that,” he said. “It would be nice if we can come home and play good, solid baseball. Hopefully, the kids are excited to be back home and ready to play.” Nebraska, traditionally regarded as a Big 12 powerhouse, has fallen on hard times this season. The Huskers (15-14, 3-6) enter the weekend series having lost three of their last four contests. They have been led offensively by senior outfielders Adam Bailey and D.J. Belfonte. Bailey, who was drafted by the Yankees in 2009 but elected to return for his senior season, is second in the conference with a .424 batting average and leads the team with 10 home

Belfonte, a native of Kansas City, Mo., is second on the team with a .388 average and has gone deep five times. “They have some key players in their lineup,” Hill said of the Huskers. “Adam Bailey is one of the best players in the Big 12. Belfonte, he’s a creator guy. He’s a tough kid. He’ll set the table for them and he’s having a very good year again.” K-State will counter at the plate with a trio of big bats in Nick Martini, Carter Jurica and Adam Muenster. Martini, a sophomore outfielder, ranks

fifth in the Big 12 with a .404 average and enters the game on a 23-game hitting streak — two shy of the school record. Muenster, an infielder and one of just three seniors, owns a .396 average and leads the team with 111 at-bats. Jurica, a junior shortstop, is hitting .388 and is tied for the team lead with four homers. From an experience standpoint, the Wildcats appear to have an advantage on the mound, but Hill says Nebraska’s pitching staff has already shown improvement, thanks in large

part to the volume of pitchers who were on last year’s team. “They had some young arms last year, but they’re a year older,” he said. “Obviously, it makes a big difference when you have more experience on the mound.” Today’s start time is set for 6:30 p.m. at Tointon Family Stadium. There will be a pre-game ceremony in which the Wildcat basketball team will be honored for their run to the Elite Eight. Following the recognition, head basketball coach Frank Martin will throw out the ceremonial

Women’s Tennis

Wildcats to play last road games of season over weekend Danny Davis | Collegian The K-State women’s tennis team is set to play back-to-back matches this weekend on the road. The first will be at No. 71 Colorado on Friday, followed by Missouri on Sunday. The team is coming off a strong home showing. Last week, the Wildcats defeated the Kansas Jayhawks, shutting them out for the first time in the team’s history. Led by three freshmen, the team regained its footing in doubles matches and captured victories in each singles match. Prior to the match against the Jayhawks, the Wildcats struggled in the doubles arena against Iowa State. The Wildcats stumbled, but won the match 4-3, marking their first victory against a Big 12 opponent this season. After the win against Jayhawks, the Wildcats are 2-3 in conference play and 5-8 overall. Before returning to play at home, the team had experienced a five-match losing streak on the road. Losses along the way included Tulsa, Texas and Nebraska — all ranked teams. Each conference loss came during the squad’s last

Colorado features two individually ranked players. Monica Milewski, ranked No. 95, and Melisa Esposito, No. 124, have a combined 18-6 mark for the spring. Colorado holds an 8-8 record overall and a 1-4 record in

the Big 12. During the last four meetings between K-State and Colorado, the Buffaloes have won each time. K-State has not won in Boulder since spring 2006. The Missouri Tigers are currently on a three-match losing streak. They have a combined re-

cord of 5-11 and have no Big 12 wins this season. The last time the two teams played each other came during the 2008 spring season and K-State won the matchup. Carmen Borau Ramos, Karla Bonacic and Ana Gomez Aleman are the freshmen leaders among the Wildcat team. The last two matches for Borau Ramos have resulted in three-set victories. Bonacic has won five of her last seven matches in singles. Over the past two matches, the trio has remained undefeated, posting a combined 6-0 mark. The match against the Jayhawks was the first time since February that the team had won a doubles point. The week before, they lost every doubles match against Iowa State. For the match against the Jayhawks, adjustments were made to the doubles teams, pairing Gomez Aleman with Borau Ramos, Bonacic with Antea Huljev and Nina Sertic with Petra Chuda. After the matches this weekend, K-State will finish the regular season at home. Upcoming opponents include Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. All of the remaining matches for K-State will be against Big 12 opponents.

Rowing Club

Sunflower State Championship Regatta to be held at Tuttle Creek Ashley Dunkak | Collegian At 1 p.m. Saturday, there will be another opportunity for K-State to best Kansas, and also Wichita State. The rowing club teams will compete in the Sunflower State Championship Regatta, which rotates between the three schools. It will be a 2,000-meter home event this spring, just a short drive away from campus at Tuttle Creek Lake. Since there are only three teams, the combination of seven-minutelong races by men’s and women’s

four-person and eight-person boats at both the novice and varsity levels is expected to wrap up around 3 or 4 p.m. “Our expectations are very high,” said rower Scott Steffen. “We had a good showing last fall, and we are hoping to really carry that well over into the spring, so we see ourselves quite possibly winning it and doing very well.” Novice coach Craig Doan said that in the fall the team defeated some top-ranked teams and said he thinks if K-State had a little bit big-

ger crew with some more publicity, it might be in the top 10 itself. He said K-State boats placed third and sixth in nationals two years ago, and Steffen recounted a story of a K-State novice boat placing third in a race with varsity boats, which they were put into because of a scheduling conflict. “A novice boat beating varsity boats — that’s pretty awesome,” Steffen said. Doan said rowing can be a spectator sport, but a little knowledge is necessary because the races can

be a bit dull in the middle since the starts and finishes are the most obviously exciting. “I think it’s a sport that you can support if you understand it’s a lot like baseball where you have to know what’s going on and have an understanding,” Doan said. “Because if you do, every pitch is exciting, every swing, things like that.” In the boathouse, one of the boats is named for Don Rose, who started K-State’s rowing club back in 1963, when the nearest boathouse was 500 miles away, and

effectively began the sport in the Midwest. The programs of WSU and KU came after K-State’s did. Varsity coach Brian Ransom said the team is fairly young this season. All but a couple of the rowers have only been in the sport for over a year. Ransom said good rowers have really strong catches, good hard drives and nice long recoveries so they can breathe. “The older, more experienced rowers basically just look like machines or pistons,” Ransom said.

Corwin | Lecture on animals, conservation attracts students Thursday evening in Ballroom Continued from Page 1 all negatively affecting the planet and its inhabitants, including humans. Corwin compared the extinction of animals today to the hypothesis of the last mass extinction that killed the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. “The asteroid is us, it’s what we do,” Corwin said. Corwin described his childhood, growing up in an urban environment without wildlife and where no one could not swim in the water at the nearest beach because it was too polluted. Corwin said he developed his love of nature by frequent visits to his grandparents’ house in rural Massachusetts. Corwin said that he became a naturalist at about the age of 6 when he discovered a garter snake in the woodpile behind. He watched the snake for years. He then became a conservationist at the age of 8 when he witnessed a neighbor kill the snake with a spade. His passion for saving and sustaining wildlife was further fueled when he had children. “There’s a saying,” Corwin said. “’We did not inherit this world from our an-

The purpose of Corwin Connect is “to be the bridge between humankind and the natural resources we all depend on by connecting and empowering a global community to the planet,” according to their mission statement. The Web site encourages networking between professionals in the field, organizations and individuals pooling their information and ideas together. It also has a sister site on Facebook at facebook.com/corwinconnect. After speaking for an hour, Corwin came down from the stage and walked around the audience as he answered questions from them for another half hour. Questions ranged from his opinion on hunting to using genetics to preserve animal species. “It was nice to hear opinions from someone who’s a professional,” said Ashley Shenefelt, senior in animal science.

BirdHouse music series Junction City ‘going green’ with fair continues with Big Smith Lauren Garrison | Collegian

Lauren Garrison | Collegian As part of the BirdHouse acoustic music series hosted by the Manhattan Arts Center, the band Big Smith from Springfield, Mo., is set to perform Saturday at 8 p.m. Big Smith, which is sponsored by Stephen and Deloris Berland, was once composed of five cousins, but recently teamed up with fiddle player Molly Healey. According to Bigsmithband.com, the band plays “raucous acoustic music that captured the spirit of their native Ozarks.” The band members play acoustic instruments only, including the bass fiddle, guitar, mandolin and washboard.

Tickets for the performance can be purchased in advance at the center’s box office — located at 1520 Poyntz Ave. — The Dusty Bookshelf and Claflin Books & Copies. The ticket prices for adults are $16, students pay $13 and military pay $14. Tickets can also be purchased the day of the event at the center’s box office. For more information about Big Smith, visit Bigsmithband.com.

This weekend, Junction City is set to host the community’s first Green Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Municipal Building, located at 7th Street and Washington Street. The fair, which is sponsored by the Geary Community Sustainability Council, will have several exhibits and booths for visitors to explore, and several discussions are scheduled throughout the day. The talks will cover a number of green-related topics, from consumer energy efficiency, to renewable energy sources, to rangeland burning. The speakers will be at two locations: the gymnasium stage and the commission

room. “It is a combination of exhibitors who will be handing out information from their booths and several talks staggered in between,” said Susan Moyer, director of Dorothy Bramlage Public Library. “There will also be some kids activities, and on-site recycling available.” The exhibits will offer information to visitors about the various options available to them that will make their homes and offices more energy- and cost-efficient, such as energy-saving appliances or eating locally-produced foods. “We will also have food service from a local food service provider,” Moyer said. Moyer said they will also be

selling tickets to visitors giving them a chance to receive a compost tumbler. She said the tickets are $1 each, but those prices are suggested donations. As part of the on-site recycling collection that is also available, visitors can bring hazardous waste, e-waste and recyclables, including No. 1 and No. 2 plastics, aluminum and steel cans, newspapers, magazines, telephone books, and all forms of paper (notebook paper, computer paper, manila folders, etc.) to be recycled. Friends of the Animals, a nonprofit animal advocacy organization, will also be at the fair collecting working animal carriers, as well as clean, used blankets and towels to be used for cage liners.

Fire Dept. to flood hydrants this month

Aggravated battery case under investigation

Staff Report | Collegian

Tyler Sharp | Collegian

The Manhattan Fire Department will start its annual fire hydrant maintenance program April 20, according to a press release from the City of Manhattan. Crews will be flowing and painting fire hydrants throughout the city until late fall, according to the report. Each year fire hydrants are flowed to ensure they work properly and to flush out water lines, the report said. If you notice yellow or rust colored water after crews have flowed fire hydrants in your area, the report suggests running water in the bathtub or shower for a few minutes or until the water runs clear. If the water does not clear up, contact the City of Manhattan customer services at 5872480 or the Manhattan Fire Department at 587-4500. Please use caution when in areas near flowing fire hydrants as the water flow may be at a high enough pressure and volume to cause damage to vehicles if driven through the flowing water, according to the report. In addition, children should be advised not to play in or ride bicycles through the flowing water. Questions or concerns can be directed to the Manhattan Fire Department at 587-4500. For more safety information, go to ci.manhattan.ks.us/fire.

A Manhattan man reported himself the victim of aggravated battery. Brock Zerener, 20, of 809 Bertrand St., reported that between 12:30 and 12:45 a.m. approximately six males battered him, according to Lt. Herb Crosby Jr. Zerener sustained fractures around his eye, a burst blood vessel and bruises to the upper and lower eye area. The suspects are unknown and the incident is under investigation, Crosby said.
