Board of Trustees discuss changes in Ag program BOT focuses mainly on the agricultural  department during Sept. 12 meeting. SARAH HILL

Garden City Community College’s Board of Trustee’s met Wednesday September 12. While two members of the board, Steve Sterling and Ron Schwartz, were missing from the meeting, the show went on. The meeting focused mainly on the agricultural department. The John Collins Vocational Building will also be home to some future renovations. Reconstruction of labs and classrooms in the southeast part of the building will be accommodations for the new programs being offered. Plans even call for a meat storage cooler being installed into what is now a lab. The cost of these renovations however chose to be a bit higher than the college had planned for. So Dr. Herbert J. Swender recommended that the board take the lowest bid. The offer came from Dick Construction out of Garden City with a bid of $808,401. While the highest bid was approximately $817,800. Two of GCCC buses have been authorized to be replaced. The purchase of two new buses were made from

The facilities will be moved from the Pe n k a Bu i l d i n g and Practical Arts and Sciences to a Community Day care this fall. This will allow hours to be expanded and child age ranges to be varied as well. An estimated total of $18,200 will be paid to Community Day care. Students will have to pay a flat rate of $50 per week. The college will also contribute grounds work at the facility as well. President Swender stated that the college has seen a 6.7% in fall semester credit hours. He also noted that new articulation agreements were put into place after

Swender was very proud to announce that GCCC was recently ranked as one of the top 24 community colleges in the U.S. for student success by CNNMoney magazine. It seems that the Ag program enrollment is growing see TRUSTEES pg. 5

Football, soccer, volleyball, and golf are some of the sports that GCCC have in season. The games are open to all students, faculty and staff; students are able to attend any home game at no cost with their student ID, faculty and staff can also obtain an all sporting event pass to attend the games. With these benefits one might think everyone should attend the games and supporting our team, but home games are often visited by a small crowd. “I feel like the games are very boring and not many people come, especially to the soccer games,” Christian Garcia, Lakin, Kan., said. He also said that the football games are fun to attend even though we lost; he also said that he feels like the fans cheer loudly. “The spectators in the game

are just chilling and not into the game, the atmosphere is like any other game but not very exiting,” Moises Rodriguez, Garden City and yell leader, said. “I feel like I need to go up to the fans and cheer them on to support our team.” Dawnnel Francis, m a t h i n s t r u c t o r, said that she saw the students were sitting down and not very interested in the game. “I tried to get the students excited about the game, but they just looked at me like I was crazy,” she said. Some students make efforts to try to get students more involved in the athletic events. “I think for the next game I would probably make posters and be more cheerful and get the fans excited,” Jorge Salamanca,

As a newspaper staff, we feel that it is extremely important that people stay informed about what happens in the world. Presidential elections are just around the corner. It is critical for people to get informed about the candidates. Most American citizens have this line of reasoning: “My votes not going to matter anyway, so why should I take the time to inform myself?” There are so many people each year that don’t inform themselves about important issues. Why should they have a right to complain, if they don’t care enough to voice their opinion by voting? A better way to get informed is to do some research instead of acquiring information from mainstream media, which is often biased. Each presidential candidate has their own website with first hand information. On the websites you will find candidates opinions about different issues that will help formulate an educated decision. Check out each candidate’s platforms; the findings may be more than a little surprising. Here at the Silhouette, we the staff like to browse through local newspapers, the Huffington Post, the New York Times, as well as each candidate’s website.

Seatbelts or your life . . . you choose Seatbelts save lives; I’d heard this a million times growing up, along with “click it or ticket”. I knew to always put on my seatbelt when getting into a car, but I never knew just how much they really mattered until a few days ago. For some people, the only way to open their eyes to something is to experience it firsthand. People learn from their mistakes, just don’t make a mistake that could cost you your life. Such as, neglecting to wear a seatbelt. While driving home one night, I made the horrific mistake of over-correcting on a dirt road. This caused the car I was driving to swerve and unfortunately I rolled into a nearby field before coming to a complete stop. The damage; all windows shattered, glass scattered on the seats, top crumpled like aluminum foil, and a driver’s side so smashed in it nearly collapsed on my head. Needless to say, my car was totaled. However, even though the car was destroyed,

Is iPhone5 the new beast?

SARAH HILL sarah.hill@student.

I walked out of the accident with only a few cuts and bruises, all of which have either disappeared or are almost gone. How? The seatbelt I had been wearing saved my life. I am still standing, because I chose to wear a seatbelt The reason I chose to share my story with you, is because I hope to help you realize everything that could happen in a split second. I thank my lucky stars every single day, and every time I get inside a car, that I was wearing

a seatbelt that night, because it may very well had been the reason I get to share my story with you today. Don’t just wear your seatbelt because it’s the law; wear it to save not only your life, but also those around you. Wear a seatbelt, save a life, think about it.

Apple introduced the iPhone 5 to the public in the Yerba Buena Center in San Fransico on Sept. 12.Their was very few surprises to anyone who was following the Apple rumor mill over the past few months. Apple unveiled the iPhone 5, along side with new iPods, which was a surprise, because they usually have a separate event for the music players. According to Apple “iPhone 5 is the biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone”. The new iPhone has a new design, bigger screen, faster processor and a new version of Apple’s IOS software to power it. Apple also included a 4G LTE antenna for faster data as well as a better camera that is capable of taking panorama photos. There is also room for another row of apps, the headphone jack has been moved to the bottom of the handset and the most radical change was the 8-pin dock connector. Here are some reviews on the new iPhone. “Bright, responsive and it just feels right’: published about the iPhone 5. “Nearly every feature has been upgraded, with a focus on what counts: screen, sound, camera, speed,” David Pogue from the New York Times “This is without a doubt the best iPhone yet, tech blog Engadget wrote. “This is a hallmark of design.

This is the one you’ve been waiting for,” CNET reviewer Scott Stein said. The smartphone market is currently dominated by Android (Google Inc.) with 68.1% of share, followed by IOS (Apple Inc.’s iPhone) with 16.9% of share, Blackberry (Research In Motion) has a 4.8% of share, and Symbian (Nokia) 4.4% of share according to the International Data Corporation. Apple hopes that the iPhone 5 changes the Apple-or-Android choice and increases their market share with their new device. The iPhone 5 will go on sale Sept. 21, and will be available on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. The phone will cost 199$ for the 16GB model, 299$ for the 32GB model, and 399$ for the 64GB model, with a two year contract.

Alumni helps students pave career path

TRUSTEES continued from pg. 1 growing steadily with every year. The program has not only students from Garden City, but from Nebraska, Colorado, California, Missouri and even a student all the way from the nation of Honduras. Among the Ag instructors, personnel include Agriculture Instructor Cindy Venjohn, Animal Science Instructor Dr. Clint Alexander, and new to the programs are Rosio Ibarra, Technical Program Case Manager, and Austin Voyles, the new Animal Science and Food Safety Instructor. Voyles and Ibarra were brought on as part of the TRAC-7 program. A series of new certificates are being added to the program including Agribusiness, which has options of either livestock management or agronomy to choose from for future careers. More certificates are also being offered in the new field of food safety and food inspection. The program has also been working very closely with Ag teachers from Southwest Kansas High School. The students do a multitude of different things, including getting involved in 4H and helping to recruit future FFA members.


It’s always nice to have an instructor whom you can relate to. Here at Garden City Community College, there are more than a few instructors that have chosen to return to help teach current students just what they’ve learned from their experience and academic triumphs. Well, now there’s yet another alumni that has chosen to come and share her wisdom. For those students out there who don’t know a whole lot about the Ag department, or even ones that do, let me introduce you to someone new to the scene. Rosio Ibarra is now GCCC’s Technical Education Case Manager for those involved in TRAC-7. Ibarra went through about a two month process before joining the staff towards the end of May. She said that she knew she got the job when she received a ohone call saying she was officially hired. Her job was relatively slow during the summer, as there are not a whole lot of students to help during this time, but Ibarra said she is definitely busier now. Although Ibarra is new

to the administrative staff, she’s actually no stranger to the college. Not only did she grow up right here in Garden City, she also graduated from GCCC in 2009 after two years of attending classes. “I advise certain students and help them find a career path . . . I also help them get credentials for future schooling and job opportunities.” Those that she helps are involved in the TRAC-7 program, which is a grant offered through the government. There are 7 different schools that have been offered this grant. TRAC-7 is an acronym, which stands for Technical Retraining to Achieve Credentials. Ibarra said that she really enjoys the job and decided to apply for the position because of her experience she had as a student. “I was always able to talk to professors, I didn’t think the class sizes were too large and the faculty was so wonderful.” Ibarra said she “loved being a student here”, which is why she chose to come back. Adjusting well, Ibarra said “Whenever I have a question, I know who to ask,

everyone’s really friendly.” Although, she commented that the change from a big city like Wichita to a tiny town like Garden City was a bit rough. “I still know a lot of the instructors, or at least I remember them, it’s great working here.” In her position as Education Case Manager, Ibarra helps students

with whatever they need. “I’m here to help, my door is always open . . . we’re really student support.” For example, if a TRAC-7 student needs help with homework, Ibarra can help said students find the tutoring center. Not only does she help with homework assignments, she also helps pupils plan for the future.

The Little Engine that could

Dont overlook Hill, this little engine is good



The little engine that could, that’s Tyreek Hill, # 24, in a nutshell. “Dangerous” is a word coaches used when asked about Tyreek. It has been taken noticed that most teams kick the ball short, instead of letting Tyreek have a chance to return it for a touchdown, which he did against the Blue Dragons two weeks ago. “He is fast, but his quickness makes him faster”, Drew Jordan said. Tyreek Hill was Named NJCAA Special Teams Player of the Week on September 13, 2012 because his performance against Hutchison, where he tallied a total of 131 special team yards. After two returns Hutchinson decides to kick short for the rest of the night. “Do not let his size fool you, he will run over you, he’s tough”, Alex Mason stated. Tyreek hill simply makes plays; rather it’s a kick return, a run, or a reception down field. When asked, “what do you think about when the balls in your hands” he responded simply “ I don’t think, I just do”, which can explain his moves when avoiding tackles. He is a definite player to keep an eye on every week.
