Sweet Granada moves next door E mily G iffin W ill A ustin Moving to a new address just a few feet away from their previous location, the Sweet Granada opened for business yesterday at 803 Commercial Street. The chocolate company will have a grand opening event Oct. 14. Nearly six years ago, it was decided that the hometown business had outgrown its space. “We have had a growth year every year since we opened in 2004,” said Kim Redeker, owner and operator of the Sweet Granada. “I guess one way to say it is that Emporia has been good to us.” Redeker said they had searched previously for a bigger building to fit their growth, but weren’t quite willing to give up their “little shop.” Late last year, the opportunity she was waiting for finally came. “We started the concept in December last year and the actual renovations began in July this year,” Redeker said. “We literally started from the ground up.” For years, the Sweet Granada

had separate locations for retail and production. With the move, they are now able to house both under one roof. “We used to produce out of Olpe, so when the opportunity for space came along right next door, we jumped at it,” Redeker said. Rachael Richardson, chocolatier at the Sweet Granada, said that for her, this is the best part of the move. “It’ll be more efficient, too, and it’ll just be fun to have everyone working together,” Richardson said. Derek Krause, junior business major, works in the retail section of the Sweet Granada. He said he is happy with the new building. “It looks great – it feels great,” Krause said. “It’s so much better with all the extra space. It saves Kim (Redeker) and everyone a lot of time.” The connection between the Sweet Granada, the Granada Theatre and the Granada Coffee Shop is being maintained through the design of the new building, which incorporates elements of the older buildings.

Over 400 young Kansas students swarmed Emporia State’s campus for the William Allen White Children’s Book Awards Oct. 4-5. Children who attended the event were able to listen to and meet authors Patrick Jennings and Peg Kehret, this year’s award winners. “It is very exciting,” said Peg Kehret, author of “Ghost Dog Secrets,” which won the award for grades 6- 8. “It’s an honor. I love that the kids do the voting,” Patrick Jennings, author of “Guinea Dog,” picked by students in grades 3-5, said he was on “cloud nine.” “This award is literally the highest honor I could dream of,” Jennings said. The award was founded in 1952 to honor William Allen White’s love for reading. Each year, two authors are selected to receive the WAW Book Award. The recipients are chosen by student votes in two sets of grade levels (3-5 and 6-8) across the state of Kansas.

“When William Allen White passed away, there were a number of things done in his honor,” said John Sheridan, executive director of the WAW Book Awards and dean of university libraries and archives. “He was just a tremendous reader and he wrote 17 books and thousands of columns and millions of words so books were something very dear to him.” Before students are given the books to vote on, a selection committee of representatives from different organizations across the state must narrow down the master list of nominees. “There is this group of people who do the really, really heavy lifting, and I bring them together on one Saturday in September, and it consists of representatives of a number of different organizations,” Sheridan said. “This past year there were 123 nominees.” Over time, these children’s book awards have grown to encompass much more than the presentation ceremony. As early as Friday afternoon, the authors were interacting with the visiting children. “We had Patrick signing (books)

at the William Allen White house, and all the children...know that William Allen White is one of the eight wonders of the state,” Sheridan said. Following dinner, the authors joined the early arrivals of students for a question and answer session. “It was part of my job to know when to pull (the authors) away because they would be there all night if I let them,” Sheridan said. Saturday, events kicked off at 7:30 a.m. with more book signings. Students could engage in other activities while they waited for the ceremony to begin. “We found that there has always been a line, so we thought up some activities, some arts and crafts, making dog toys and some other things,” Sheridan said. “Students could come in and write the authors…there was also some science and robotics for students interested in science.” The festivities ended with a parade through campus and the awards ceremony. At the end of the day, the awards are more for the students than they are the authors, Sheridan said.

Government shutdown will not immediately affect ESU W ill A ustin It is unclear how soon legislators in the United States capitol will bring an end the government shutdown that began at 12:01 a.m. Oct. 1, after they failed to agree on a spending bill to fund the government for the next fiscal year. This has made the impact of the shutdown on Emporia State equally uncertain. For now, very little has changed for students. Sarah McKernan, executive assistant in the ESU President’s office, said that over time, however, federal grants and student Financial Aid could be affected. Pamela Fillmore, a program consultant for the ESU Research and Grants Center, which helps people apply for and administer federal grants, said grants which have already been received are safe for now. With several federal websites still down, Fillmore said the biggest obstacle they currently face is searching for new grant opportuni-

ties and making progress with ongoing proposals. “If we’re waiting on a proposal previously submitted to be reviewed, that’s going to be delayed,” Fillmore said. Should the shutdown last to the end of October, Fillmore said it will also begin to affect ESU’s access to money from grants that have already been approved. Requests for cash are made every 30 days to reimburse the university’s grant-related spending. “I’d say if (the shutdown) went on a month it would be problematic,” Fillmore said. “Hopefully, it won’t.” It will take longer to see an impact on federal Financial Aid for current students, said Elaine Henrie, director of Financial Aid and scholarships. “All programs that were available for (the 2013-2014 academic year) are currently being funded,” Henrie said. If enough time goes by before a spending bill is passed allowing Department of Education employees to return to work, the ESU office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will have difficulties addressing “more complex

student loan borrower issues,” Henrie said. “We just do not know, as this is uncharted territory for us,” she said. Another, more immediate, effect of the indefinite furlough for Department of Education workers is that they cannot be contacted, said Kristi Bolen, director of TRIO programs. For Bolen and others who work in federally funded education programs, this is a potential problem if they have pressing questions to ask the government department. An article at, the U.S. government’s official website, said veterans’ education, along with compensation, pension and other benefits, risk being put on hold if the government situation were to last. Marilyn Buchele, executive assistant of the dean of students, said her office has not yet received any information about how long it would take to see real consequences of the shutdown on veteran students.

Briefs Hayes Lecture offers five $1,000 scholarships As part of the Sam E. and Jeannene Hayes Lecture Series, former Kansas Lt. Governor Gary Sherrer will share “Lessons Learned” at 7 p.m. tonight in Webb Hall in Memorial Union. The Emporia State, Blue Key and Alpha Kappa Lambda alum will talk about the experiences he gained while attending ESU, serving as the secondranking executive officer of Kansas state government and teaching high school speech and debate. One of his major contributions as the chair of the Task Force was to help reshape higher education in Kansas. Sherrer also received the Carls Perkin Humanitarian Award in 2002 for his work as chairman of the National Association of Lieutenant Governors. In addition to hearing Sherrer speak about his wide range of experiences, students attending the lecture have a chance to enter for a $1,000 scholarship. A total of five scholarships will be handed out. In order to enter, students will be provided a specified link to follow and answer three essay questions. The Blue Key Honor Society will choose the winners based from the information students enter online. Scholarships will be provided by Doug and Nan Smith. Hornet ID cards will be swiped as students enter the lecture hall, so students must attend the lecture to receive a scholarship. Sherrer was part of the original chartering class for the Blue Key Honor Society in 1963, and with the help of President Shonrock and others, brought back the Society to ESU last year. His presence carries on at ESU through two rooms dedicated to him and his deceased wife on campus.

Post-Game Party to have live entertainment In the spirit of Homecoming week, Green River Ordinance, a 1960s rock band founded in Emporia, will perform at the Emporia State Homecoming 150 Alumni and Friends Post-Game Party, according to an ESU press release. The event will take place at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 12 in Webb Hall in Memorial Union. The Post-Game Party will cost $10 per person. Other acts lined up for the event include the Martin Dingus band, who has prepared a jazz selection for the audience, and Logan Mize, a rising country singer who will play some songs to promote his concert at the Grenada Theatre the same night. Elvis will also make an appearance. Tyler Curtis, executive director of Alumni Relations, said this year the Sauder Alumni Center staff wanted this year’s post-game part to be “bigger and louder.” “We wanted to do something big for the 150th anniversary,” Curtis said. “We decided to go with the Kansas pool and see what angle that took us in.” Curtis contacted Glen Andrews, one of the founding members and an ESU alumna, who reached out to the rest of the band. In less than 48 hours, they were booked for the party. “If you like jazz, country, or rock and roll, the post-game celebration is a great place to be,” Curtis said.

ASG will have busy October S teve E dwards On Oct. 3, in their fourth meeting of the year, Associated Student Government passed two bills regarding Recognized Student Organizations and addressed increasing public transportation availability on campus, as well as student concerns about the recent changes in printing policy. One of the issues brought up at the first “What Do You Want Wednesday” was for ASG to present a proposal to the Emporia city commission for L-Cat to establish direct routes from campus to Walmart and other locations on the north side of Emporia. The proposal was presented yesterday. The issue of SkyPrint charging for printing jobs after the first free 100 pages was also raised at What Do You Want Wednesday. Michael Erickson, associate vice president of information technology and chief information officer, spoke at the senate meeting to address those concerns. Erickson said one of the goals for SkyPrint was to “create a consistent printing service across campus.” SkyPrint differs from printing services at other universities because it provides students with the option to send print jobs from mobile devices to printers in William Allen White library and computer labs campuswide. Erickson said while over a million pages were printed during the spring 2013 semester – when printing was still free – the overall cost of printing “went through the roof.” More than 50 percent of students printed less than 200 pages, but four users printed over 4,000 pages. “The cost to provide that affects everybody,” Erickson said. “If we’re

using the money to pay for paper, toner and other printing maintenance expenses, we can use those funds somewhere else in the university.” Erickson said he believes they’ve provided a more flexible and equitable campus-wide wireless printing program. Senate Bill 14001, “Rescinding Student Organizations,” passed 17-02. The bill’s sponsor, Lynn Hobson, dean of students, said the organizations in question were being rescinded for not registering in the spring, or not completing or submitting their required community service hours. “I know that behind the scenes, people that have been working diligently with the clubs that were recognized late in the year,” Hobson

said. “They’re working to get registration worked out with them.” Senate Bill 14002, “Reserve Fund Request for Sociology Club,” passed 19-0-0. Rowley said the club had previously missed the opportunity to receive allocation. “We had a president who experienced some health problems and we did not know this until after we were supposed to meet to get what we asked for,” said Rochelle Rowley, associate professor of sociology. The club plans to use the money for a visiting speaker, organize a sociological symposium at ESU and to cover travel costs for students to present at the Sociological Society. The next ASG meeting will be held at 5:15 p.m. Oct. 24 in the Senate Chamber.

Sweets from ...Page 1 “The building was built shortly after the Granada Theatre was, but it needed work (both) structurally and mechanically,” Redeker said. “We took out all the flooring and poured a new floor, and then we put in all new electrical and plumbing. The tin ceiling is the one thing that is still original.” With the Granada trio, each business supports the other. “We have a lot of synergy and it includes the (Emporia) Arts Council and the new businesses like the Granada Lofts,” Redeker said. She also credited the success of the sweets shop to the events that are supported by Emporia Mainstreet. Events like the Dirty Kanza, the Amateur Disc Golf Championship and the Great American Market are all events that help promote business for the Sweet Granada. “The recent growth of the university has had a very positive impact on us, too,” Redeker said. “We’ve seen a nice spike on game day and family day sales.” The grand opening for the Sweet Granada will start when they open at 10 a.m. Oct. 14. The ribbon cutting will take place at 11:30 a.m., followed by a prize drawing at 6 p.m.

Obama to nominate Yellen as Bernanke successor

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will nominate Federal Reserve vice chair Janet Yellen to succeed Ben Bernanke as chairman of the nation’s central bank, the White House said Tuesday. Yellen would be the first woman to head the powerful Fed, taking over at a pivotal time for the economy and the banking industry. Both Yellen and Bernanke are scheduled to appear with Obama at the White House on Wednesday for a formal announcement. Bernanke will serve until his term ends Jan. 31, completing a remarkable eight-year tenure in which he helped pull the U.S. economy out of the worst financial crisis and recession since the 1930’s. Under Bernanke’s leadership, the Fed created extraordinary programs after the financial crisis erupted in 2008 that are credited with helping save the U.S. banking system. The Fed lent money to banks after credit markets froze, cut its key short-term interest rate to near zero and bought trillions in bonds to lower long-term borrowing rates. Yellen, 67, emerged as the leading candidate after Lawrence Summers, a former Treasury secretary whom Obama was thought to favor, withdrew from consideration last month in the face of rising opposition.

A close ally of the chairman, she has been a key architect of the Fed’s efforts under Bernanke to keep interest rates near record lows to support the economy, and she would likely continue steering Fed policy in the same direction as Bernanke. The White House announcement comes in the midst of a confrontation between Obama and congressional Republicans, particularly those in the House, over the partial government shutdown and the looming breach of the nation’s $16.7 trillion borrowing limit. Obama has been harshly critical of Republicans for demanding either changes in health care or spending policies in exchange for paying for government operations and raising the debt ceiling. White House aides, however, said Obama was not likely to use Yellen’s nomination announcement for partisan remarks on the shutdown and debt limit. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, said that the administration probably decided to go ahead with the announcement to send a signal of policy stability to financial markets, where investors are growing increasingly nervous over the partial shutdown and what they perceive as the much bigger threat of a default on Treasury debt if Congress does not raise the borrowing limit.

Latino forum offers insight to success K ati S trickland Alfredo Montalvo, professor of sociology and criminology, is originally from Puerto Rico, but has been in Emporia for 19 years. He said he does not see himself leaving anytime soon.

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage month, the Hispanic American Leadership Organization (HALO) hosted the Successful Latinos Forum I Oct. 5. This small event brought three Latino Emporia State professors to talk about their own journeys toward success, giving students motivation and

inspiration. The speakers at the event offered several key concepts on how to become professional. “We live in a society where kids are not supposed to stare at people or ask questions,” Mantalvo said. “They have lost their sense of curiosity.” Clarissa Carillo, vice president of HALO and junior economics major, asked the professors if there was ever a time when they had thought about giving up. “In a way, if you’re just following your passion, then you don’t think about not doing it,” said Jorge Ballester, professor of physics. “It just comes naturally to keep doing what you’re doing.” Gregory Robinson, assistant professor of Spanish, said there were moments in school when he thought, “No more,” but whenever he had those thoughts, he remembered that he needed to continue. “I would not give this up, and that mindset keeps you going,” Robinson said. Finding a way to relieve stress is essential when taking harder graduate or undergraduate classes, Robinson said. “You have to encourage yourself first, and take advantage of the opportunities right in front of you,” he said. Robinson, who has only been a faculty member at ESU since 2011, said he loves the feeling at the university. “I was happy to come to ESU because it was a small setting, very much similar to the one I got my teaching degree, (at)” Robinson said. “I feel like I’m at home in that sense.”

Jorge Ballester, professor of physics, demonstrates to students and faculty the idea of cylindrical force at the Successful Latinos Forum I Oct. 4 in the Blue Key Leadership Room. The event was hosted by HALO and had professors Alfredo Montalvo, Gregory Robinson and Ballester speak about being successful in school. Michael Boyer/The Bulletin

Esmeralda Vasquez, member of HALO and junior economics major, said there will be another forum

coming up to discuss and address stereotypes about different types of Hispanics.

Five former athletes and a previous national runner-up baseball team from Emporia State will be inducted into the Emporia State’s Athletic Hall of Honor. “The inductees will join a group of 175 former student athletes, coaches and administrators, and 13 teams who have distinguished themselves, the university and their professions through their athletic achievement,” said a press release from Athletic Media Relations. Cindy Cameron, an Ottawa native, was an NAIA All-American in cross country and track. In 1988, she was the national runner-up in the mile at the NAIA National Indoor Track and Field Championships. Cameron’s career did not slow down, and in 2013 she placed third in the USATF Masters Cross Country Championships. Bill Favrow, a Kansas City native, was a three-sport athlete for ESU. He placed third nationally in shot put in 1962, and was champion three times at the Central Intercollegiate Conference. In the same year he set the school record at 54-09.00 for shot put and is still currently ranked fifth all-time at ESU. He played for the ESU football team for four years and lettered one year for the basketball team. David Harris was the 2001 Women’s NCAA Division II National Track and Field Coach of the Year and 11-time MIAA Coach of the Year. The Hornets established themselves as a nationally prominent NCAA Division II team in track and cross country under Harris’ guidance. The Hornets also won ten MIAA team championships in his time. Dontaye McCoy, a Wichita native, was a three-time All-American in 1999-2002 for the Hornet football team. He was a first-team AP Little All-American, AFCA All-American and Football Gazette All-American. He won the Emporia State Male Student-Athlete of the Year twice and led the Hornets to the 2002 Mineral Water-Bowl Championship. These inductees will be awarded at 8 a.m. Oct. 12 at the annual Hall of Honor Breakfast in Webb Hall in Memorial Union.

Outstanding Recent Graduates recognized

M icaela C line The Outstanding Recent Graduate Award recognizes recent graduates from among each of the undergraduate colleges and schools at Emporia State. “We’re proud to recognize this year’s class of Outstanding Recent Graduates,” said Tyler Curtis, executive director of alumni relations, in a press release from Marketing and Media Relations.

Alumni selected for this award had to have graduated no more than 10 years ago. Emily Aronis, a Wichita native, is a member of Health and Wellness Coalition of Wichita, helping the city’s largest employers become healthier. She is a Benefits Analyst in charge of wellness program implementation at Spirits Aerosystems and developed running clubs at Bombardier and IMA to encourage coworkers to become physically

active. Despite her achievements, she still comes to ESU every semester to participate in the Worksite Wellness Program speaker panels and help current health promotion majors. Michele Burke, a Salem, Ore. native, is a reference librarian at Chemekta Community College in her hometown. She graduated from ESU in 2006 with a degree in library science and continues to be a guest speaker at ESU’s School of Library and Information Management classes

in Portland, Ore. Burke was named a Library Journal “Mover and Shaker” in 2012 and was president of the Oregon Library Association in 2013. Knoxville, Tenn. native Ashton Ludden obtained a degree in engraving and printmaking, alongside an art history minor at ESU in 2009. She was one of two undergraduates to receive a Kansas Arts Commission Emerging Artist Award Fellowship while still at ESU. She is currently obtaining a Master of Fine Arts in

printmaking at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Her art has been shown and recognized internationally. Jeremy Rusco, a local business owner on Commercial Street, graduated from ESU with a bachelor’s in business administration. Rusco owns Dynamic Discs, which he started on eBay in 2005, and has since grown from a small business to retail storefronts in Emporia, Kansas City and Lewisville, Tex.

Ceremony will recognize Distinguished Alumni M icaela C line The Distinguished Alumni Award at Emporia State is given in recognition of accomplishments of exceptional graduates every fall during Homecoming. The tradition began in 1960 and Emporia State has since awarded 220 different alumni. “The award is the highest honor granted to a graduate of the university,” said Tyler Curtis, executive

director of Alumni Relations. “There is a selection committee consisting of alumni board members and current faculty,” Four people with varying degrees in special education, physical education, law and communication careers are going to receive the award. Linda Bluth, who graduated Emporia in 1966, went on to teach special education for 47 years. She is currently living in Ellicott City,

Maryland, and is working part-time at the Office of Quality Assurance and Monitoring at the Maryland State Department of Education. Anita Evans graduated with a major in physical education in 1980 and has since coached the high school softball and volleyball teams in Mayetta, while at the same time implementing the importance of Native American culture in contemporary society. In 1997, Evans was named the Kansas

Native American Educator of the Year. John Schramm II graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and then went on to be a faculty member of Stanford’s Master of Business Administration program in San Francisco, California. The last Distinguished Alumni Award goes to Paul Thornbrugh who graduated in 1968 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. During his time at ESU, Thornbrugh also worked for The Bul-

letin. He currently lives in Tulsa, Okla. and is a presiding judge for Oklahoma’s 14th Judicial District. Before that, Thornbrugh served in the U.S. Army and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal and Vietnamese Signal Corp Citation. The awards celebration for these alumni will take place at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow in the Memorial Union Webb Hall. A $30 per person reservation is required to attend.

Who picks the homecoming candidates, anyway? K ati S trickland

At the football game this Saturday, one couple from of this year’s 10 Emporia State Homecoming candidates will be announced and presented during halftime. Every year, the Homecoming candidates are chosen by Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs), who are allowed to choose up to 10 percent of their total membership to be nominated. Those chosen must be seniors who have above a 3.0 GPA. Once the candidates are chosen, the nominees are sent applications. “Names are not included in the applications that are then sent to the judges,” said Lendi Bland, faculty adviser for Service, Patriotism, Understanding, Responsibility and Sacrifice (SPURS). “Judges are selected by SPURS members from ESU faculty, staff and alumni and usually number between 4-7.”

According to the “ESU Homecoming Royalty Process,” the application form asks for a list of leadership positions, honors and awards and includes four questions about life at ESU. This application is then scored by the chosen judges, who rank the six areas from one to five, and the five females and five males with the highest scores become the candidates. The candidates are then interviewed by judges who rank them in order from one to five for females and males. The student body then votes for one male candidate and one female candidate. The candidates are then ranked from one to five based on the number of votes. The total scores from the applications, interviews and votes are counted and the candidates with highest scores for male and female wins. Check out the infograph to the left to see how well you know the 2013 candidates!

Ryan Miller’s husband, Levi Miller, senior communication major, doesn’t think that things will change if she does win Queen. “She might become even more well-known on campus,” Miller said. “but she already knows so many people.

She really knows how to lead by example and does so every day.” The crowning will take place at Welch Stadium during halftime of the ESU football game. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m.

All-Elvis Homecoming musical premieres tonight S teve E dwards The 41st annual Homecoming musical, Joe DiPietro’s “All Shook Up,” will premiere at 7:30 p.m. tonight in Albert Taylor Hall. It will run through Oct. 13. The jukebox musical romantic comedy inspired by William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” features renditions of the music of Elvis Presley. “The best part is that it’s a scholarship musical,” said Aubrey Near, senior communication major and stage manager for the show. “All of the proceeds of the Homecoming musical go to student scholarship funds.” Near said Emporia State Theatre saw an increase in attendance during the summer season and has high expectations for attendance at the Homecoming musical. She said nearly 700 high school students will be visiting ESU on Wednesday night to view a sneak peak of the show. “The show is really funny, and I like that there are definitely differ-

ent personalities for each character,” said Annie Rosenbrook, senior theatre major, who plays Sandra. Ethan Platt, senior music major, who also plays Dennis, said “All Shook Up” is “a well-timed musical comedy.” Kayce Holoubek, a community member playing Natalie, said she auditioned after a read-through of the musical. “I laughed so much,” Holoubek said. “There is something to laugh at in every part.” Near said the homecoming musical is “very extensive scenerywise,” but is driven by the music and comedy. “It’s the Mamma Mia of Elvis,” Holoubek said. “There are more musical numbers than people in the cast – lots of jumping on tables and dancing around.” Cast members began rehearsals about a week after audition callbacks. Rosenbrook and Holoubek said there were issues with the tables breaking during rehearsals, which became subject for comedy. “We’re terrified of jumping up on the tables,” Holoubek

context must always be considered. Our health levels are not a sum of different activities where you lose a point for eating cake and gain points for running a mile. The psychological aspect of health is every bit as important as the physiological aspect. How we feel about our own appearance is just as relevant as how others see us. It may seem like the guy running around campus with a six-pack is the epitome of health, but his self-image may be that of someone who can never be lean enough. Maybe he feels guilty for eating pizza the night before. Maybe running, to him, is actually a punishment. In that case, is running still healthy? In contrast, maybe the girl next

door who is overweight is actually very comfortable with her body image, despite what others may believe. She eats poorly, rarely exercises but feels great about herself. Don’t be naïve in thinking that just because you exercise seven days a week, you’re automatically healthy. Just “eating clean” doesn’t automatically make you better than someone who frequently visits the drive-thru. Are you mentally in a good place? Does missing a workout ruin your day? If so, it’s wise to take a step back and re-evaluate your goals. Constantly striving for a healthier body is not a competition with contentment about our self-image. It is possible to be happy with our physical appearance and to also want to look

better. It becomes dangerous if we aren’t able to find that balance. Although these two camps are very different, they should learn from each other instead of shunning one another. Combining their mindsets would result in the ultimate healthy individual. Those who are physically unhealthy should not assume that exercise is about vanity and hiding insecurities. Those who are physically healthy shouldn’t look at others as lazy bums. Health is a balancing game. Like a balance beam, if you put too much emphasis in one direction, you’re bound to fall, but if you find the right balance, you can stay up forever.

Divided States of America STAFF EDITORIAL

Imagine a world where every time a corporate board can’t come to an agreement, their business simply shuts down. When your bank can’t agree on which advertisement company to work with, they close. When your university can’t decide between Coke or Pepsi, they freeze all services. Of course, the bigwigs would still get paid, but the economy would be in chaos. You’d think the people would revolt. By now, it’s no surprise that we, in theory, currently have no working government. Congress shut itself down at 12:01 a.m. Oct. 1 because they would rather wage a petty battle between party lines, instead of doing the jobs they were elected to do. House Republicans wanted spending bills to include provisions that would undermine President Barack Obama’s health care plan, which has already been passed (and deemed constitutional by the

Although my participation was solely for extra credit, I took the depression screenings held by the Student Wellness Center Oct. 1-3 seriously. Most students didn’t. The event was open to all students. Because depression is very serious and more common than most people believe, the Wellness Center attempted to get as many students as possible to be screened. To do this, they gave professors the choice to offer extra credit as an incentive for students to attend. An abundance of students went to the screenings, but the high numbers of participants also made the issue of depression seem less important.

Supreme Court). Democrats didn’t care for the provisions. Since neither party could come to a decision by the deadline, they simply said, “Forget it,” and decided not to go to work the next day. Wouldn’t life be so much better if every time we decided we’d rather stay in bed than go to class or work, we had the mindset of Congress? Forget responsibility. Never mind those who depend on us to provide for them, like our children or our peers who count on us to uphold our end in a collaborative class project. Congress knows the government will face a “funding gap” if spending bills are not passed by the fiscal year deadline (Sept. 30) every year. They know only a handful of government services will continue to operate if they fail to do their job. They know that all non-emergency employees will be placed on furlough. But, as we can infer from recent actions, they really don’t care. Apparently, Congress also didn’t mind

forcing their fellow government employees – almost 800,000 workers – into unpaid leave. They don’t care about citizens who depend on those bills to feed their families, or those services that fill the wage gap, or how those “nonemergency” employees will afford to pay for their insurance and every other bill that piles up. They couldn’t care less about you. The most important issue at hand is not whether or not Americans are for or against “Obamacare.” What’s most important is that Congress needs to stop behaving like illmannered children and start doing a better job of representing the people who elected them. We need a united front. We need lawmakers who will improve our struggling economy. American people are tired of the same old song and dance. It’s time for a united Congress that is an accurate reflection of the United States of America. Right now, we have no business

Shallow Screenings

A large majority of students who attended the screenings went only for the academic reward. Students rushed through the paperwork, circling the answers that seemed least likely to flag concern and sped on through their brief counseling sessions. Because of this, those who were at the event to actually talk about their problems were forced to rush through their sessions as well. For a student who is in a happy, content state of mind, this might seem completely reasonable. If you don’t have a problem, no need to fix it, right? But for those who are not as happy-go-lucky, depression is a difficult thing to admit. Students who are struggling tend to put on a brave face

and “suck it up,” so that they seem just as happy as the rest of their friends, and so that they are not looked down on. According to Brown University, the majority of people struggling with depression, whether mild or severe, do not realize they should seek help. Believing that it is just a “down” phase, they are not able to identify the signs they’re exhibiting and do not realize that it is a serious matter. Because college students are a high-risk group, we need to be made more aware of the symptoms of depression and informed of its commonality. Armed with this knowledge, the goal to find and assist students who are struggling with depression would


I find it difficult to say no. I can openly admit to people that I am over-involved. I’m no expert, but I can offer my two cents on this predicament that student leaders often find themselves in. We have been taught since we were young to, “Just say no.” But it’s hard when opportunities come knocking, especially if you are at a conference or a retreat where the atmosphere makes you feel like just about anything is possible and you can take on just “one more” duty or leadership position. You need to really think about your schedule, your abilities and consider if you are truly passionate about it. Don’t sign up for a new commitment because you think it will look good on a résumé. If an obligation is not important to you, and you will not be able to effectively get the job done, just say no. You may feel bad at the time, but you will likely be saving

the group, and yourself, from a future headache. Tumblr and Twitter now have accounts known as “Student Leader Probs” that address the difficulties of being a busy student leader. The accounts speak as if they are a student leader and tweet about “probs” and dilemmas that young leaders face, such as being bombarded with emails, having no free time and forgetting to eat and take care of themselves. While the accounts highlight the troubles of being a student leader in a somewhat humorous fashion, it also makes you see that it can be a serious issue. The health of the students is at risk because sleep, a good diet, free time and self-care can become almost non-existent. If you are becoming unhealthy or unhappy, figure out what tasks can be dropped and what choices will make you happy. Ask yourself if your involvement is At least two of the books I’m reading for one of my classes this year have been challenged in school libraries. Why? Because some parent or teacher believes that they know what’s best for all children to read or not read. Looking down the list of some of the most recently challenged children’s books, I’ve noticed an infuriating theme. Ignorant parents are literally trying to keep kids from learning

about acceptance and difference. One book, called “And Tango Makes Three” is a picture book telling the true story of two male penguins who build a nest together and are eventually given an egg to hatch and raise together. Another, called “The Family Book” was completely banned from an Illinois school district because it said that some families can have two moms or two dads. Of course, these are just two of the more recent works that have been challenged. Let’s not forget the challenge that met “The Lorax” and its environmental message. But, it’s not just kids’ books that are being banned. Moving up into the young adult realm, I was shocked to see that two of my required readings for a class – “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian,” and “Looking for Alaska” – have been challenged in different school libraries for sexual content. In this case, the right of a young adult to read a book that contains

Athletics also celebrate 150 years R ocky R obinson


Starting in the 180s, baseball is one of the old-

est sports still being played at the university. Kansas State Teacher College won their first national championship back in 1978. Since then, the university has produced dozens of All-Americans and has even sent some players to the Major Leagues.

Football: After being banned twice, the Board of Regents allowed Kansas State Normal School to play their first football game in 1894. As the school transformed into Kansas State Teachers College, football began to rise in popularity, and the team had their first undefeated season, 7-0, in 1926. Now, 87 years later, Emporia state finds itself working on another undefeated season, going into Homecoming week 5-0.

In 1992, the university transferred to NCAA, which was a big transition for all Emporia athletics. This transition allowed the university to hire coaches, who did not have to be teachers or faculty member, helping to integrate sports like soccer to ESU. “Now, our coaches are only paid to coach,” said Kent Weiser, athletic director. “That has changed kind of the face of the athletic program and the transition has also created new position in the program. When I got here, the tennis coach was also the academic coordinator. Everybody still does a lot of stuff but we have more defined areas of responsibility.” Even though sports like tennis and soccer do not have as long of a history, they still remain a cornerstone of ESU athletics and have helped produce some of the 180 inductees in Hall of Honor. Each year the list grows and maybe someday, fellow students will be in the archive or Hall of Honor. “We are now in our 12(th) year of soccer, and it has been almost 10 years since we had a winning record,” said Bryan Sailer, head soccer coach. “We want to and are working on creating a better history for the team. The history of soccer isn’t really something we sell to our recruits, but as we create that history it will be in the future.” The exhibit honoring 150 years of Hornet athletics opened on Monday and will run through the end of the semester. It is located in the Special Collections and Archives in room 119 of William Allen White Library.

The year was 1944 and not unlike this week, what was then the Kansas State Teachers College was celebrating another Homecoming. As the weekend rolled around, students and fans made their way into Welch Stadium for another Homecoming football game. The 43 women volunteers were divided into two teams for another hard-hitting game, as most of the men remained overseas fighting in World War II. As the university celebrates 150 years, so does Emporia State athletics. Honoring a rich history of athletic achievement, Ashley Todd-Diaz, curator of special collections, with help from Ron Slaymaker, has assembled “V-I-C-T-O-R-Y: 150 Years of Athletics.” The exhibit is located in William Allen White Library. “In honor of the 150th anniversary of the school and wanting to coincide with Homecoming, we wanted to focus on the 150 years of student athletics,” Todd-Diaz said. “I am just really fascinated with the stories and sports people really didn’t know existed at Emporia State.” Even though Emporia State will probably never see another women’s field hockey team, there is still a solid athletic program that is continually expanded and gaining reputation. The university has had four main sports throughout its history.

Basketball: The first recorded men’s basketball game was played in 1901. Women’s basketball was introduced a couple years later. Since then, women’s basketball has won almost 15 championships, including a national championship back in 2010. Men’s basketball has also made its mark on the University. Former player, coach and Hall of Honor member Ron Slaymaker is an Emporia Legend. The court is even named in his honor.

Track and Field: Track and field did not start to get competitive at ESU until around 1902, but since then it has produced numerous All-Americans and even some world record holders. John Knuck’s world-record shot put can be seen in the Archive. It is currently on loan from Slaymaker.

Members of BUILD Beauty fill out information for a Mary Kay consultant during a Swap & Shop Monday night in the Kanza room of Memorial Union. Girls were encouraged to bring beauty products to trade with one another, as well as non-perishable food items to donate. Sarah Sutterfield, Mary Kay consultant, was also there to give the girls some surprising beauty tips and facts including that a woman’s face ages seven days every time it isn’t properly washed and treated. This night wasn’t only about swapping make-up tips as President Kristen Farnsworth announced at the opening of the event.

Can the Bods begins annual competition E mma D e P riest Every fall, Emporia State and Turnpike Rivals, Washburn, begin a friendly wager – collect the most canned foods and, as a prize, pie your rival’s Associated Student Government president in the face. “Can the Bods is a canned food drive competition between Emporia State and Washburn University, in which both schools collect canned food and non-perishable items throughout an allotted time span,” said Racheal Countryman, ASG president and senior communication major. Countryman said donations at each school go to their respective communities. ESU gives to the Salvation Army Emporia Corps. Donation sites for canned goods will be set up in areas around campus including the Center for Stu-

dent Involvement, which is located by the west entrance of Memorial Union. Individual students, as well as Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs), are encouraged to donate cans because it counts as community service. “RSOs will be able to collect canned food items and participate in a competition between other RSOs,” Countryman said. “ASG will provide a prize for the RSO that collects the most.” People Respecting Individuality and Diversity in Education (P.R.I.D.E.), plans on donating any cans they receive at their upcoming events to the competition, said Spencer King, senior English and History major and P.R.I.D.E. president. He said the group’s main goal is to help those in need. “It’s always nice to be able to contribute to friendly competition at

the same time,” King said. Several on-campus groups make this event possible. “In the past couple of years, the Associated Student Government has partnered with KVOE and their Pack the Pantry event,” Countryman said. ASG is also working with student organizations such as the Student Athletic Advisory Committee, Community Hornets, and Sigma Alpha Lambda. The food collected during the month of October alone can help the Salvation Army feed the Emporia community up to next summer. “Don’t think of community service opportunities as work – think of them as opportunities to help other people, and turn them into something fun,” King said. “The less it seems like work or the more good you see in what you do, the easier it is to do it, and the more you will want to find more community

service opportunities.” King said it’s important to help people who have hit rough spots in life to help them get back on their feet. As for the pie, Countryman said it’s just a pie tray full of whipped cream. “Either way, I hope I won’t have to taste it,” Countryman said. Washburn’s student government

president, Shelbie Konkel, senior political sciences major, said that it’s a really great program that they are excited. “It’s one of my favorite events, and I’m sure that it’s a highlight of Emporia’s year, too,” Konkel said. Collections for Can the Bods will end Nov. 8. The winner will be announced at the ESU vs. Washburn football game Nov. 16 at halftime.

Soccer team ends home game stretch R ocky R obinson

Volleyball team goes 1-1 for the weekend R ocky R obinson The volleyball team had a bittersweet weekend as they played back-to-back home games at White Auditorium Friday and Saturday. After falling to #5 Nebraska Kearney, the Hornets bounced back Saturday night to take Fort Hays, 3-1. Coming off the victory against Fort Hays, the Hornets traveled to Missouri last Tuesday, where they fell to Missouri Western 1-3. The Hornets started out the weekend against #5 Nebraska Kearney. Despite both Carley Spicer and Brianna Kaiser having 10 digs with .5 hitting averages, the Hornets could not get traction against the Lopers, falling 25-18, 25-14 and 25-22. After the loss to Nebraska the Hornets Hosted Fort Hays, despite losing the opening set, 25-21, the Hornets came back against the Tigers to take the next three sets 25-22, 25-21 and 25-20. ”I think our team played very well,” said Katie Deutschmann, junior right hitter and health promotion major. “We have been working very hard in practice and it was nice to finally get a win. The biggest key to our success is our strength at the net with both blocking and attacking. We have a

The Hornet soccer team ended their six-game home stretch this weekend competing on both Saturday and Sunday. They started off the weekend with a loss to Nebraska Kearney, followed by a tie with Fort Hays State. “When we can score a goal or two, we are going to win a lot of game,” said Bryan Sailer, head coach. “Our defense is that good, it is just matter of getting those goals and remaining strong and confident.” After being postponed to Saturday due to the weather, the Hornet soccer team started the weekend with Nebraksa Kearney. The Lopers scored off of a free kick with just over 30 minutes in the first half, breaking the Hornets four-game scoreless streak. Despite eight saves by Yadira Rivera, freshman goalkeeper, the Lopers managed to score again in the second half to take the Hornets 0-2. The Hornets hit the Emporia High School pitch again Sunday, when they took on Fort Hays. Despite being outshot 17-12, the Hornets managed to push the

game into double overtime as both teams went scoreless in the first to halves. “We had just played a game yesterday so coming off of that with not even a day of recovery was a challenge,” said Ashlyn Parker, junior defender and nursing major. “We didn’t get the result we wanted but we never gave up. We have had success lately because we have had the will power.” Battling through strong wind, neither team could get a good eye on the goal as the game ended scoreless in double overtime. Rivera’s three saves helped the Hornets finish their sixth shutout of the season, moving the Hornets to 5-4-2 overall. “Our biggest key is believing in ourselves as a team,” said Mallory Walen, junior midfielder and information systems major. “The other coaches in the conference picked us last in our conference and we know we are better than that. We come out every game to prove that to the other teams.” The Hornets now start a four-game away stretch tomorrow, when they travel to Maryville to take on Northwest Missouri.

Sports Short Football continues winning streak Well on track to match last years record season of 10-2, the Hornet football team still remains undefeated after last weekend’s 5214 victory over Lincoln. The Hornets quickly took control of the game, scoring 10 unanswered points in the first quarter. They continued the momentum into the second, as Brent Wilson, sophomore quarterback, quickly scored on a 27-yard run. Antonio Brown, sophomore running back, ended the half with two more rushing touchdowns, putting the Hornets up, 31-0. Mitchell Foote, freshman wide receiver, scored the only points in the third, completing an eight-yard pass from Wilson. Going into the fourth, the Hornets had scored 45 unanswered points. With a comfortable lead, Corben Jones, sophomore, got a few snaps at quarterback for the Hornets, completing a 37-yard pass to Reese Richard, freshman halfback. Brown scored another rushing touchdown with at the three-minute mark. The defense allowed two touchdowns in the fourth ending the game, 52-14. The Hornets now prepare for their Homecoming game against Southwest Baptist, at Welch Stadium. The game will be the MIAA TV Game of the Week and is set to kick off at 2:30 p.m.

strong front row and we used that to our advantage this weekend.” Again, Spicer led the team in kills with 15 while Kaiser added a double-double of 12 kills and 15 digs. “I thought we played better than we had lately and really pulled together to win,” Spicer, a health promotions major, said. “and our key to success would probably be our blocking and our chemistry on the court. We get along on and off the court and I think that helps a lot. Like I said, we have great blockers and our setters do a good job at giving us good sets so us hitters look good. For the second time this season, the Hornets took the court against Missouri Western. In the first match alone, there were five ties and two lead changes but the Hornets fell 28-26. After losing the second set 25-19, the Hornets held the lead the entire third set, winning 25-23, but could not keep the momentum. They fell, 25-23, in the third set. Bing Xu, head coach, said in an interview with Media Relations that the team just has to get past a mental block.
