Sponsored by GCCC, the presentation is free and open to the public. “This is an opportunity that came up just this week, and we wanted to share what Sergeant Boerstler has to say not only with the students of GCCC, but also with the community,” said Ryan Ruda, dean of student services. Boerstler enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps as an infantryman, eventually rising to the rank of sergeant and serving in Iraq, Kuwait, Syria, Jordan, Djibouti, and Kenya. He earned an honorable discharge in 2007. He sustained an injury in Iraq, leading to trauma in his right eye that required 10 days of intense treatment. “When I was injured, I felt I was rendered ineffective,” Boerstler explained. “My Marines needed me and I needed them, and even though I couldn’t see, I wanted to get back out there.” Boerstler is affiliated with the Wounded Warrior Project, a national organization that serves U.S. military personnel who have been injured in service to the nation. The project focuses on honoring and empowering wounded warriors with service-connected injuries that they sustained on or after Sept. 11, 2001.

Wow. There’s so much more we can do in terms of delivering information. We are excited to make some changes. Allyson Maturey Breakaway editor in chief

FRESHLY SQUEEZED Conference amps up GC3 Media staffs’ juices ANGIE HAFLICH !"#$%!&'!()*'+,-./$"-&#***0,&$/.

In between sessions during the National College Media Conference in Orlando, Fla., Oct. 26-27, GC3 Media students soaked up media lessons at Universal Studios. The annual event, hosted by the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) and College Media Advisers (CMA) and attended by more than 3,000 college journalists and advisers from across the country, provided media students training in newspaper, magazine, and online production, as well as digital photography and advertising. Breakaway magazine editor in chief Allyson Maturey attended Digitial Photography sessions, which she said helped hone her photography skills. “I learned a bunch of things I didn’t know before attending the class,” she said. “They also taught us photo editing tricks to use in Photoshop.” Boomer Pauda, Breakaway sales representative, attended a special Business and Advertising, which

taught him how the GC3 media department could better promote and manage its advertising. “I learned that it’s not about meeting your sales quota or filling your pages with ads, it’s about the business you’re working with,” Pauda said. “It’s more than selling ads. It’s about helping and understanding businesses and their needs.” Following the workshops, the students along with Media Adviser Laura Guy, spent the afternoon and evening taking in the sights, sounds, and rides at the Universal Studios theme parks. “I think taking in all that a location has to offer is an important part of the educational process,” Guy said. “Besides, much of what we study in media has applications throughout the parks. Whether it is the history or the techniques we’ve been studying. It’s nice to see the students make the connections.” Harley Torres, Breakaway writer and designer, said his favorite ride was ‘Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.’

“It was a simulation ride so you were placed in a cart and elevated a short distance from the ground and all the action of the ride involved a projection screen which displayed vibrant imagery and the cart you were on simulated the movement into the imagery, so it was very and immersive,” Torres said. Pauda said the whole trip was full of new experiences. “The best thing about the whole trip was getting to experience a new place. The food we ate was awesome and the sights we saw were almost like a new world compared to Kansas,” he said. “The flight was also pretty fun, being my first time on a plane. The people I went with also made it fun. There was never a dull moment.”

An â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;arrestingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; experience for instructors, future cops MELISSA HODGS

Seven trophies were brought home from Springfield, Missouri. The competition team from the GCCC Criminal Justice program traveled out of state to put their work to the test against other colleges in Region 3 of the ACJA (American Criminal Justice Association), competing in firearms, physical agility, tests, and crime scene. Firearms consisted of three different distances in yards; 7 yards away from target, 15 yards, and 25 yards. Participants had to utilize their sharp-shooting skills to take a trophy and bragging rights. Physical agility involved running around a course, maneuvering hurdles, flipping a tire, and dragging a mannequin. Eric Thill, who placed first in physical agility said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was great! It was also a great opportunity for TEl to represent GCCC in a postitive way.â&#x20AC;? In writings, there were five tests on different

subjects including; ACJA history of the association, Juvenile, Criminal Law, Corrections, Police Management and Operations. Each competitor haf to take a 75-question test. Crime scene consisted of an area where a crime was committed. With a team of three, students had to use their investigative skills to figure out what happened to the victim and what lead to the crime. After the dinner on Oct. 22, GCCC students had the opportunity to go on a ride-a-long with the Springfield Police Department during their third-shift, overnight shift. These students got to experience what happens in big city streets. After once in a life time experience, they attended the final breakfast provided by the association. During this breakfast was when they trophies were handed out to the winners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really fun and I encourage others to join next year,â&#x20AC;? Patricia Ball said.

Memorial scholarship to be awarded at GCCC

GCCC, KSU offering associate-bachelor degrees

Fall scholarship campaign raises over $80,000 in scholarship funds

A new scholarship fund has been established with the Garden City Community College Endowment Association in memory of longtime Garden City residents, P.C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Billâ&#x20AC;? and Velia Garcia. The Garcias raised three children, including a daughter, Elsa Ulrich, and two sons, Steve and Ernie Garcia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My father was always a firm believer in the value of education,â&#x20AC;? Ulrich said. The fund was sent up through memorial donations made by family and friends in 1991, when the father died. It continued to build value when the mother died in 2008, and now is fully endowed and able to generate annual scholarship awards. The first scholarship of $175 will be awarded for the upcoming spring semester. The scholarship is available to any student of Hispanic or Latino heritage demonstrating financial need. It is open for students pursuing any major, as long as the individual has a 2.0 grade point average and is a resident of Southwest Kansas.

Garden City Community College and Kansas State University signed a series of two-plus-two agreements in a short ceremony today that will provide expanded associate and bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree opportunities for Southwest Kansans. In each of the programs, students may complete the first two years of a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree at GCCC, also earning an associate degree, and then finish their junior and senior level courses from K-State using Internetbased classes. None of the programs require attendance on the K-State campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to bring the message that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to work with the community colleges, so students can complete bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degrees at a distance,â&#x20AC;? Sue Maes, K-State dean of continuing education, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really appreciate Kansas State University pursuing juniors from our student body and working with our freshmen and sophomores,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Herbert Swender, GCCC president.

With late-arriving gifts and pledges now in, the GCCC Endowment Association Fall Scholarship Campaign has reached its goal of $80,000, and nudged slightly past it by more than $300. The association concluded the 32nd GCCC Scholarship Phonathon Oct. 13 with $77,532 from direct mail contributions, as well as pledges attained by an estimated 250 volunteers who called friends and alumni of the college for support. Since that time the total from contributions in the direct mail segment of the campaign has risen from $30,837 to $31,392, and an additional $1,480 arrived in phonathon pledges. Coupled with the $47,445 in pledges logged by the final night of calling, that put the final count at $80,317 as of on Oct. 25. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were confident that we would be able to meet the goal, and I want to thank each and every person who volunteered or contributed to this campaign and made it a success,â&#x20AC;? said Endowment Association Executive Director Melinda Harrington. The Garden City Community College Endowment Association will celebrate successes of the past year and honor award winners during the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 annual meeting Nov. 15 at the Clarion Inn. The gathering includes dinner at 7 p.m.,The cost to attend is $22 per person, and reservations should be made by Nov. 11 at 620-276-9578. The association will also elect new members and officers for the board of directors.

GCCC John E. Miller Memorial Scholarship Awarded A GCCC freshman is being helped along by the generosity of a couple who started a scholarship to honor the memory of their son, another GCCC criminal justice program graduate. Matt Walker, Fredonia, is a freshman criminal justice major and the recipient of the John E. Miller Memorial Scholarship for the 20112012 academic year. Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career plans include applying to the Kansas Highway Patrol after graduation. If accepted, Walker said he would like to serve a few years as a patrol officer and then, ultimately, train to serve in a K-9 unit with the KHP. The scholarshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s namesake, John

E. Miller, graduated with honors from the GCCC Criminal Justice Program in 1992 and was selected as the outstanding sophomore graduate that year. Miller later attended the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center, and became a deputy and police firearms instructor with the Lyon County Sheriff Department. He often returned to GCCC to serve as a guest instructor. Upon his death in 2006, Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, Thomas and Pricilla Miller, Emporia, established a memorial scholarship in his name and specified that it be made available to GCCC students intending to make careers in law enforcement.

A number of Southwest Kansas businesses and individuals have taken advantage of a state program that provides tax credits for contributions to assist with deferred maintenance projects at Garden City Community College, and the opportunity is open again for the 2011 tax year. The program was created in 2007 by the Kansas Legislature, and launched in 2008 with credits of 60 percent to support all Kansas community colleges. A total of 23 businesses and individuals have participated since the program began, and this year GCCC can accept up to $347,000. The credit applies to individual, corporate or business income, as well as insurance premium and bank privilege taxes, according to Dee Wigner, GCCC vice president for finance and operations. The credits, available through the tax year of 2012, are refundable if in excess of Kansas income tax liability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The State of Kansas gave community colleges an opportunity to fund capital improvements with tax credits,â&#x20AC;? the vice president explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best part of the deferred maintenance credit is that individual taxpayers benefit personally while supporting their local colleges.â&#x20AC;? At GCCC, the minimum contribution is $1,000. Information is available from Wigner at dee.wigner@ or 620-276-9577.

KNEA-SP hosts Jennie Barker clean up JESUS LOZOYA

The sound of a hammer against a steel stake, which will hold new soccer goals in place, echoed across the playground at Jennie Barker Elementary School as volunteers worked on the KNEA-SP sponsored clean up. The sound of steel brushes scraped through the old rusty paint of the swings, slides and fire truck where kids pretend to be firemen. The old equipment seemed to take on new life with every stroke made. The volunteers were from various organizations such as PTK, HALO, Art club, members of psychology classes, as well as members of the community. There was no one who wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t busy; every single volunteer had something to do. Some were repainting the map of the United States on the basketball court, others were brushing away the rusted painting off the playground, replacing goalie nets, and doing gardening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m helping to paint the United States at Jenny Barker,â&#x20AC;?

The main thing that the group wanted to accomplish that day were painting and cleaning up the place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Painting is one big part of this project,â&#x20AC;? Tammy Hutchinson, KNEA advisor, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had planned just to do some part of the painting project but the art club and the painting crew had just painted away and they have accomplished a lot.â&#x20AC;?

SILHOUETTE | November 3, 2011

Garden City Arts’ gallery doors are closing. That’s the word around town. Rumors often have a basis of truth. Here’s the truth: Governor Brownback deflated the Kansas Arts Commission. Garden City Arts lost a significant source of operating revenue, which helped pay rent, utilities and payroll for four employees. While Governor Brownback did not put our local arts to death, he did cause an unexpected stumble. Founded as a non-profit organization, Garden City Arts’ mission is to enrich lives and encourage creativity through the arts. Basically, we want to make home a better place. We live in Southwest Kansas. There is no river. A fresh aroma of money often escapes the local feedlots and greets us as we exit the movie theater. We have one of the largest meat packing plants in the world. Good for us. On the flip side, we are home to one of the finest zoos in the state. We have an awesome Vietnamese restaurant. No one can say that their swimming pool is bigger than ours. There is a new high school being built on the edge of town, and yeah, it cost an arm, a leg and an eye. But, it will be something to be proud of when finished.


And, we have an art gallery. The galler y located at 318 Main Street offers local artists a chance to display and sell their work. It also offers the opportunity for the public to view and purchase artwork without having to drive to a metropolitan area. During the week, we have a regular line of window shoppers. That’s about it. Traffic is down. Sales are down. So, as we struggle to keep our door open, we wonder if the community wants us to. Governor Brownback was confident the Arts will continue to flourish through private donations, but we are yet to see them. Previously, the Kansas Arts Commission collected about 24 cents from each Kansas resident and distributed the collected funds to the various art organizations throughout the state. When the cut came, we stood firm. We had no intention of going down with the ship.


Step away from the screen and get involved


Yet here we are, struggling. So, we want to know what the community thinks. Does Garden City need an art gallery? Vote at www.surveymonkey. com/s/Y7VBXDS. It is easy to point fingers of blame, but in all honesty, this is not the Governor’s fault— though his cut of the Kansas Arts Commission was certainly unfortunate. Financial distress is the result of low sales and a stunted membership. An individual membership is only $35 for the year. If you can’t donate cash, donate time. The board of directors is short handed and volunteers are few.

Without local participation, Garden City Arts cannot exist. Support the arts. And as the holidays roll around, keep us in mind. We offer one-of-a-kind gifts. Visit the gallery during our new hours: noon – 6 p.m. Tuesday – Friday or 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Saturdays. Contact by phone at: 620-260-9700 or email: gardencityarts@gmail. com. Our doors are open—for now. Br i a n Ne l s o n , Ga l l e r y Manager and the Garden City Arts Board of Directors.

Just sitting on the sidelines watching other people have fun is not really having fun. People that get involved have a better memory of what has gone down in an event and they will actually have something cool to post on their Facebook page. In this ‘digital age,’ it is easier to post a status update and tweet than to get off the couch and check out what’s new at the ArtGallery on Main St. or what activities GCCC student organizations have planned around campus. There are always activities provided by these organizations. For example, the GCCC Student Government Association (SGA) recently hosted both a casino night and a pumpkin carving event. If you think that there are not enough interesting activities, change it. Join forces with a club and make it happen. The saying “there is nothing going on in Garden,” is worn out and unimaginative, since organizations on campus are constantly hosting events for students who wish to keep themselves active and social. Remember, this is college and it is packed full of opportunities to create irreplaceable memories: the first ball game you attended with your new buddy you met in the club you joined (who you figured out bunks only three doors away from your room); the time that you got a really bad grade in a class so you had to pull an all-nighter getting hyped up on energy drinks and pizza just to pass the test the next day. You will have these memories for the rest of your life, despite the fact that they will be crammed into only two years of community college and maybe another two to four years at a university. Remember that the reason that you are in college generally is to experience and learn new things and be challenged. Being challenged by your instructors, and yourself will make all the difference in the stories you share with your children. Don’t be a party pooper - enjoy college without forgetting about your classes, which are the ultimate test that you will survive. The scars of classes; black eyes, addiction to coffee, and the anxiety of taking notes every time someone talks; will make look you tougher when moving on to a bigger university.

‘Without You’ electrifying the charts ‘Without You,’ by David Guetta is currently sitting at number 7 on the Billboard Top 100 charts and it just keeps climbing. The shifting back and forth between ballad and uptempo dance beats translates into a song that never really has a true climax. According to Guetta said that ‘Without You,’ is the ‘biggest record” on his justreleased album, ‘Nothing but the Beat.’ It’s a rather strong statement considering the fact that his latest album, also features Lil Wayne, Chris Brown,, Akon, Timbaland, Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Hudson, just to name a few. ‘Without You’ is about missing or needing someone that you can’t function without having them by your side. With the variety of beats that Guetta brings to the

table combined with the singing talents of Usher, this song is electrifying. According to Guetta is poised to do in this decade what Fatboy Slim did in the ‘90s: become a bonafied rockstar. Just like Fatboy, Guetta is an artist who is so charismatic that he makes people forget his primary role is to twiddle knobs. So far Guetta has been so good at this that he has the A-list collaborators calling him. Some of these include Kelly Rowland, Sia, The Black Eyed Peas, Akon, Rihanna and Chris Willis. While the first disc of ‘Nothing But the Beats’ will keep the hits rolling, its second part will have a more intriguing proposition. A collection of instrumental tracks that will give Guetta a chance to cut free from collaborations and make his own statement

Defense not enough for Lady Buster Soccer

Cross country results

JACLYN ANNIS jaclyn.annis@student.

The Lady Broncbuster Soccer team finished off its season last Monday, losing 0-8 to Butler Community College in the quarter finals of the Region VI Tournament in El Dorado, Kan. Prior to facing Butler, the Lady Busters lost 1-3 to Barton Community College. If GCCC had beaten Barton, they would earn the seventh seed going into the regional tournament. The Lady Busters started off strong when sophomore Stephanie Brown scored from about 20 yards out. This however would be the only goal for the Lady Busters. Barton would move onto tie the score when Garden misplayed the ball in front of their own goal. At the end of the first half the score was tied 1-1. The second half would belong to Barton’s offense and Garden’s defense. Both of Barton’s quick forwards would score on breakaway goals in the second half. Barton would also have two decent opportunities to score but they were unable to capitalize thanks to GCCC goal keeper Fabienne Wilson. Wilson would turn away both scoring attempts. However the Busters defense wasn’t be enough to hold off Barton.

Lady Busters wrap up volleyball season JACLYN ANNIS

The GCCC Lady Broncbuster volleyball team ended their season on Tuesday night as they fell to Barton Community College in the Region VI Volleyball Tournament with scores of 10-25, 17-25 and 17-25. Last Thursday the Lady Busters rounded out regular season play against Cloud County Community College. GCCC dropped the first two sets with scores of 25-18 and 25-15.

However, the third and final set of the match would turn out to be the best set of the evening for the Lady Busters. GCCC pushed out to a 21 to 14 lead but was unable to capitalize, as Cloud would take 11 of the next 13 points to win the match 25 to 23. Last Tuesday on sophomore night, GCCC took on Clarendon College. It was the final home match as Busters for Cassie Ramirez, Yassmin Soto, Stephanie Flores, Ivone Marquez, and Reagan. Clarendon took the first two sets with scores

of 25-18 and 25-17. In the third set, GCCC jumped out on a 9-5 lead on Clarendon but they weren’t able to hang on as Clarendon came away with the win with a score of 25-18. “We did not play at the pace that we needed to tonight,” Coach Lutz, said. “Clarendon is very comfortable playing at a slow methodical pace and we let them do that tonight. They stayed within their game and that is why they beat us.” The GCCC Women’s Volleyball Team ended the season with an overall record of 1-33 and 0-14 in the conference.
