DAILY EGYPTIAN Simon poll shows community concerns

Student makes history

SETH RICHARDSON Daily Egyptian Nearly 600 people responded to the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute in one of the largest community surveys it has conducted in recent years. The Jackson/Williamson County Survey was released Wednesday. The Survey Research Office of the Center for State Policy & Leadership at the University of Illinois-Springfield conducted the survey in conjunction with staff from the Paul Simon Institute. Questions covered included community views of education, government and civic participation, the economy and public safety. One-quarter of residents said they were concerned with litter, while more than one-third said they were concerned with water quality. More than two-thirds of respondents in both Jackson and Williamson counties gave positive feedback as far as the area being a place to live and raise children, while over half said the area is a good place to retire. However, over half of respondents in both counties had negative evaluations as far as being a place to work. “That’s something we see continuously throughout the survey,” Director of the Survey Research Office Ashley Kirzinger said. “In the economy section, the education section and the social well-being section. People are concerned about the economy of the region.” The survey also asked if business and personal financial conditions were better one year ago. Kirzinger said people thought their individual finances were getting better, but the same could not be said for local business. It also found crime and education were among the highest priorities for people in the counties. Jackson County also had a high number of people who wanted more museums in the area. Kirzinger said she hopes local leaders will use the poll when forming policy. “The saddest thing in the world for someone who does surveys for a living is to run the survey and then have the data sit in a file that no one ever looks at,” she said. “We take a lot of pride in the questions. The question development is done strategically and on purpose, and so we want to make sure local leaders are using the data.” She said one example of policy makers taking a similar poll serious is one she previously helped conduct in Sangamon County. The poll found many people had high levels of food insecurity, which led to a community foundation filing for grants for community gardens. The data is available for anyone else who might find it useful, she said. Please see POLL · 4


Kwamane D. Liddell will be the first black male to graduate from the nursing program within the SIU system, May 10 during spring commencement. The program receives hundreds of applications, yet only accepts 40 students per year. Liddell said he will pursue a law degree to help him understand what takes place within America’s healthcare system. KIA SMITH Daily Egyptian A woman in an all-white uniform is usually what comes to mind with the word “nurse”. But one student is redefining what it means to be a nurse in the 21st century. Kwamane D. Liddell, a senior from Bellwood, will be the first black male to graduate from SIU’s College of Nursing on May 10. “I was actually a biology major before I transferred from McKendree University,” he said. “Before that, I worked at Loyola University Medical Center in the health system. I saw that the hospital setting wasn’t for me at all, and noticed the difference between doctor and nurse patient care.”

Liddell said he prefers the direct care of nursing, versus the hands-off approach of physicians. The nursing program receives hundreds of applicants each year, yet only accepts 40 students. “I received a letter in the spring of 2011 saying that I was rejected from the program,” he said. “When I left McKendree, I didn’t have a lot of classes that transferred over. Then one week later after my rejection, I received another letter saying that I was accepted because they had made a mistake with my transfer credits.” Liddell said the preparation for the nursing program was rigorous. “The minimum GPA for the nursing program is a 2.7, however I had a 3.6 upon entrance,” he said. “I packed in a tremendous number of

science classes all at once, and remained focused because I knew I wanted to get in the program my first year here.” The U.S. Census reports the proportion of male nurses has more than tripled since 1970; from 2.6 percent to about ten percent — or 333,000 of the nation’s nurses are men. “[Being the only black male] in the nursing program was certainly a difficult adjustment,” he said. “I was certainly in a place where I didn’t know how to communicate with my peers, and they didn’t know how to communicate with me.” Liddell said many patients were simply surprised to see a black male taking care of them in a nursing program.

University waits on smoke-free policy LUKE NOZICKA Daily Egyptian Contrary to the March announcement, the university will not be smoke free as soon as expected. The SIU Board of Trustees decided at its April 17 meeting the university will postpone the policy until legislatures pass a law banning smoking and the use of tobacco products at all state universities. President Glenn Poshard said he was instructed by the board to inform Chancellor Rita Cheng and SIU-Edwardsville Chancellor Julie FurstBowe that the university will wait until the state creates a policy. Cheng said the original smoke-free policy was to begin early this summer. She said Senate Bill 2202, the bill the board is waiting on for

approval, might be more restrictive than the originally proposed policy. “One of the recommendations that is coming out of our group was to have designated areas in parking lots for smokers and the law in Springfield would be a completely smoke-free campus,” Cheng said. Poshard said the bill will create a Smoke-Free Campus Act, which would become effective and would ban smoking on all campuses July 1, 2014 if passed and signed by Gov. Pat Quinn. The bill would prohibit smoking on state-supported institutions of higher education. Poshard said the House added language requiring universities to provide a map of its smoke-free locations. The bill defines smoking as carrying, burning, inhaling or exhaling any kind of lighted pipe, cigar, cigarette, hookah, weed or herbs. It also

includes products containing nicotine. However, products approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration may be used. Poshard said he spoke to John Charles, SIU’s executive director for governmental and public affairs, minutes before the board meeting. Charles said “It’s a given” the bill will pass unanimously by large margins, Poshard said. However, Poshard does not know when the bill will pass. Cheng said the university has been talking about the ban for several years and thought of the smoke-free policy before legislatures. She said the university does not want to spend money on signs or educational material that would not be concise with the law. She said she agrees with the board’s decision to wait on an actual law.

“There have been instances where they thought I was one of my classmates’ assistants, or thought I was incompetent,” he said. “However, over time I’ve seen less of that because of the skills I’ve gained.” Despite minor obstacles with patients and peers, Liddell said he has not experienced any cases of racism within his program. “There isn’t a teacher within my program who wouldn’t take out the time to help me,” he said. “They all were willing to stay after class and help me with anything I needed to learn.” Over the years, Liddell has won the Nursing Gems Award, an SIU Alumni

Association Award, as well as an Award from the Black Males Initiative. Liddell attributes his success to the support of his friends, family and mentors, including Derrick Williams, the assistant coordinator for the Center of Inclusive Excellence. “I met Kwamane as a sophomore and his drive is just incredible,” Williams said. “He and I would sit for hours mapping out his plan to be the first black male to graduate out the nursing program.” Williams said Liddell set the bar high for other black men on campus. “He gives other students more alternatives to look at,” he said. “The nursing profession is very progressive. He wants to take what he’s learned and introduce to males

at a younger age to nursing.” Going into a service that cares and nurtures for others is what Williams said he loves most about Liddell. “I’ll be honest with you, he’s one of the young men I am most proud of,” he said. “If I could do things differently, I would ask how I could follow him. He’s a very intentional young man, and you don’t see many young men trying to do the work that gets them where they want to be.” Despite being the first black male to graduate from the nursing program, Liddell wants to take a different route once he graduates. “I actually want to pursue law,” he said. “I found some skills that I didn’t know I had, and I think I can actually obtain a degree in law to

help with healthcare policy.” Liddell said a degree in law would help him understand what takes place within America’s health system. In addition to the nursing program, Liddell served as president of the Black Male Roundtable, created the senatorial position for nursing in USG and is the associate coordinator of the Black Affairs Council. “A mixture of perseverance and my faith is what keeps me balanced,” Liddell said. “Without the encouragement of my friends, family and professors, I don’t think I would’ve made it.” Amber McKinley, a junior from Chicago studying social work, said Liddell’s story is inspiring to all students. “When I found out he was

studying nursing, it kind of threw me off,” she said. “You don’t hear a lot of males wanting to study nursing, especially black males. But he’s very goal-oriented. He’s very caring and actually wants to give back instead of just getting his degree. That’s something I really admire.” Liddell said it hasn’t set in yet that he will soon make history. “I don’t look at it like that yet,” he said. “I realize that without the help of other people supporting and encouraging me, I wouldn’t have made it. For that, I’m grateful.” Kia Smith can be reached at, on Twitter @KiaSmith__ or at 536-3311.


Southern Weekend Spotlight Thursday, April 17, 2014

Children’s shows basis for adult performance JAKE SAUNDERS Daily Egyptian A classic kids’ television series is the inspiration for an exploration of queer theory at the Kleinau Theater this weekend. Queer and transgender activist Benny LeMaster, a doctoral candidate in communication studies from Long Beach, Calif., wrote and directed “The Wonderfully Terrible and Awfully Wacky World of the Jumbles.” LeMaster’s studies in intercultural communications as well as performance studies inspired the piece, he said. “Many of my fellow queer and transgender activist friends have a hard time understanding the complex notions that inform queer theory,”

LeMaster said. “This performance is my attempt at bridging my activist identity and my researcher identity.” “Jumbles” juxtaposes large-scale ideas onto a small-scale setting, using the Kleinau’s stage and several characters to help audience members understand the foundations of queer theory, he said. “The show is inspired by ‘Pee-Wee’s Playhouse,’” LeMaster said. “An academic in our field named R. Anthony Slagle wrote an early essay outlining a framework for queer theory. He used ‘Pee-Wee’s Playhouse’ to illustrate his points.” LeMaster said the plot involves five kids named the Jumbles. Each Jumble takes a turn leading a game; each game the actors play is used to teach the audience about different scopes of queer theory. These ideas are explained through humor, dance, media, poetry, drag queens, crocheting and song, LeMaster said. “The Jumbles play everything from save the princess to cops and robbers. All the while, the audience is taught about queer theory as well as

other critical theories,” LeMaster said. While Slagle’s writing focused on “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse,” LeMaster said his show spins off of programs such as “Barney and Friends,” “Teletubbies” and “Yo Gabba Gabba.” “The reason for this choice is to promote public intellectualism as well as to promote using performance as a way to teach what we, as academics, know with those who do not have the privilege of a formal education,” LeMaster said. Despite the playful setting, the dialogue deals with a mature theme, LeMaster said. In the end, the audience learns about the theoretical arguments driving contemporary queer theory, he said. “I hope that audience members leave the performance with a foundational understanding of complex theories of gender, race, and sexuality,” LeMaster said. “Additionally, my hope is that audience members will have new ways to think about and to consider gender, sex, and sexuality.” Lindsay Greer, a graduate student in

performance studies and doctoral candidate in communication studies from Clare, Mich., codirects the performance. “[The performance is] kind of like a demented kids show with very adult themes being discussed by characters who are children,” Greer said. “It’s an experiment in staging queer theory.” Anthony Zarinana, a senior from Lake Zurich studying communication studies, plays Trad, who serves as a foil for the other children and represents why queer theory understanding is necessary. “(Trad) carries the voice that exists in places, other than the stage, that is the constant presence of the traditional values and systems,” Zarinana said. “We need to acknowledge that there are these systems in place and this is why we have queer theory.” While the show deals with complex theories, it’s infused with humor and fun, LeMaster said. “The audience will not always know what the names of the theories are,” he said. “But they will know how we might use them in our everyday interactions.”

The Main Squeeze on college scenes and musical gumbo

KYLE SUTTON Daily Egyptian Chicago-based funk band The Main Squeeze, rooted in Indiana University nightlife, blends together all the ingredients needed to get the dance floor rocking. The Main Squeeze performs at Hangar 9 Friday. Carbondale’s own Soul Census will open the show. In 2012, after several years of searching for the right pieces, the band settled on its present lineup: Ben “Smiley” Silverstein on keys, Max Newman on guitar, Corey Frye on vocals, Jeremiah Hunt on bass and Reuben Gingrich on drums.

This summer, The Main Squeeze has a full festival slate including performances at Phases of the Moon, Gathering of the Vibes and in November, Bear Creek Music Festival. The band has also recorded a six-song EP they hope to release just in time for festival season. The Daily Egyptian had the opportunity to speak with guitarist Max Newman before the show. Where did the Main Squeeze find its beginnings? Newman: We met in Bloomington, Ind., where we went to college. It actually extends further because Smiley and I met at a sleepaway camp in upstate New York, what must have been eight years ago. We started playing music early on and Smiley was going to IU, I went to IU as well, and we started a band called Main Squeeze, but it was a different drummer and bass player. The drummer we have now, Reuben Gingrich, was living on my floor in

the dorms. I met him and we started jamming and hanging out a lot. We had him come up for a couple rehearsals and the other drummer was on his way out anyway so, it kind of just worked out. The singer (Corey Frye) was similar … Smiley met him at a bar years before The Main Squeeze was even a thing. He was playing on the piano at the bar and Corey started singing some old R&B and they hit it off and exchanged numbers. The bass player (Jeremiah Hunt) is the only one that didn’t meet us in Bloomington. (Gingrich) was playing in an all-star college jazz band at Disneyland and they met and became close. Everyone kind of found someone, but it all came together in Bloomington. I read in an article online that you call your style a type of musical gumbo. Could you explain why you call it that? Newman: There isn’t really one genre that perfectly sums up what we do. Right now, we have just been calling it funk,

soul and rock n’ roll. It is a gumbo though because we all come from very different backgrounds musically. We all kind of meet in the middle and where we meet is sort of what this band’s sound has become and what it continues to develop into. How has the band matured over the past several years? Newman: We feel like when we started out, especially for Smiley and I, it was very much like we had a vision for what we wanted. A big part of our maturation has been accepting everybody and letting everybody do what they do best … we have very high standards that we try to uphold in regards to musicality and the show. The show is a lot more professional, but it still has that raw energy and freedom to it. If you could share the stage with any current act whom would it be and why? Newman: The ultimate honor would be a Stevie Wonder, an Allman Brothers or like a Red Hot Chili Peppers. That

would be amazing, next level. How did playing within the college scene shape The Main Squeeze into what you are today? Newman: We had a very unique upbringing because of that. For one thing, there is a huge audience who wants to party every weekend and probably every weekday too, so you can get shows. We started out playing a lot of cover songs. What was cool about it is even at the time we were already pretty good on our instruments. By the time we started playing originals, we already had a good fan base. The whole party-vibe of the college town really did shape us but at some point you reach a brick wall where it’s like, as many people that want to party, there is only so many people that are totally appreciating the music for what it is … you start to realize you have to get to a bigger city with a bigger market and keep (moving) forward.

“Somedays… I feel like I’m sitting in this data cave and I’m like hoarding this data, but I want people to use it,” she said. “So, any way we can make it come to life for them — and we understand that some people don’t quite understand how to analyze it, so we’re always willing to help.” Paul Simon Institute Director David Yepsen said there is a possibility of repeating the poll in the future. “It would depend on how the data gets used here,” Yepsen said. “If we see that it’s used by people, that would make it more likely that we would want to ask these people to replicate it.” Political Science Professor Charles Leonard said there is a chance for repeating the poll depending on the response to the current one. “If leadership does institute some changes that we respondents to the poll seem to want, we can see if in two years they noticed anything’s changed,” Leonard said. “So the movement is what’s really interesting and what’s exciting about having a longitudinal poll.” To access the poll, visit the Paul Simon Institute’s website at



“It’s a practical way of putting the legislative process in place and waiting to see in the next few weeks what happens there,” she said. Don Lowery, secretary of the board, said at the meeting he does not oppose a smoke free campus, but thinks the chancellor jumped the gun announcing the policy. “I think that was a mistake in light of the fact that the bill was pending,” Lowery said. “How are we going to deal with the contractors who come on campus, and they had the steel worker up on the fourth floor – he’s going to smoke – now what are we going to do about that?” Both Edwardsville and Carbondale announced the smoke-free policy within a week of each other and received negative publicity, Lowery said. “What about the students who this is their home?

was they should’ve thought it out. It should’ve been bounced by the board before they did something expanding the current state law of this state before this stuff was announced.”

Japan: stop killing whales LUKE NOZICKA Daily Egyptian I hope to someday take out a sailboat as an old man, watch the whales breach, jump and thrive as my grandchild and I watch in amazement. But with the continuing extermination of these beautiful and complex creatures, the future looks grim. The International Court of Justice in the Netherlands delighted environmentalists and whale lovers alike through an order to cease Japan’s brutal “research whaling,” project in Antarctica in late March. But as soon as the celebration began, Japan pulled a late April fool’s joke on the world. Japan’s Institute of Cetacean Research announced April 11, just shortly after the court order; it will continue its neverending, gruesome Southern Ocean hunt beginning again in March 2015. As Greenpeace and other organizations changed their tweets from “Jumping for joy,” to “Japan declares they will defy international ruling and continue hunting,” I was just disappointed. The court was uncertain just how scientific the country’s research whaling system actually is, as there has been much controversy and rumors concerned that Japan’s research whaling is for every purpose other than research. Since 1986, more than 25,000 whales

have been murdered legally for “scientific research,” according to For years, Japan has more than greatly contributed to the loss of millions of these animals. According to the World Wide Fund for Nature, 31,984 whales have been killed since 1986, and on average about 450 minke whales (of the 850 target) are killed each year by Japan, according to Each year at the International Whaling Commission meeting, Japan seems to be the only country majorly concerned about what species can be hunted and where. Usually, Japan argues more whales should be available to be hunted in more zones. It asks and takes as many whales as it can. Although it has received much criticism, the country will not hold off on harpooning and killing these stunning mammals regardless of international orders. Although I have never been to Japan and witnessed these mass murders, I do not think the country uses “scientific whaling” for science, like argued in the court. These animals are highly evolved and proven to be more emotional than humans. They are creative, live in families and mourn over dead, just like humans. They can sing for countless hours and travel miles to feed their young. While the future looks forever doomed in the cetacean community, many

commend the ongoing efforts by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, a non-profit conservation group located in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island, Wash. After hearing Japan’s decision, the organization stated they, “have ships prepared to return to the Southern Ocean in December of 2014 should Japan choose to ignore this ruling.” Sea Shepherd Founder Paul Watson has continually fought Japan in the battle of whether whales should be as vastly hunted as they are. Another activist fighting the killing of cetaceans, specifically dolphins, is Richard O’Barry. O’Barry is best known for training TV sensation, “Flipper.” He is featured in the film “The Cove,” and in the film, visits a whaling commission meeting with a TV around his neck displaying images of dolphins being slaughtered off the coast of Japan. Whaling is a part of society that shouldn’t be. It is morally wrong and unless whaling rates are significantly decreased, these animals will cease to exist down the road.

Diamondbacks beat Cubs on Wrigley’s 100th MEGHAN MONTEMURRO Associated Press CHICAGO (AP) — On the 100th anniversary of the first game at Wrigley Field, the team with the worst record in the major leagues won. And it wasn’t the Chicago Cubs. After an error by shortstop Starlin Castro, the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied for five runs in the ninth inning and a 7-5 victory Wednesday. Martin Prado hit a two-run single off Pedro Strop (0-2), Miguel Montero had a tying single against James Russell and Aaron Hill followed with a two-run triple off Justin Grimm. “These guys come in here with a good attitude. I’ve been saying it every day,” Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. “Just the couple of breaks we got — especially when the ball hit the bag. That was a great break.” But there also was bad news for the Diamondbacks. An MRI revealed outfielder Mark Trumbo has a stress fracture in his left foot and will be sidelined an undetermined length of time. Trumbo will travel to Arizona for a second opinion from Dr. Michael Lee before a timetable is set for his return. Although he was hitting only .210, he is tied for the NL lead with seven homers and was second with

19 RBIs. The MRI also showed plantar fasciitis in his left foot, which Trumbo has been dealing with since spring training. “The plantar (fasciitis) at times has been pretty bad but manageable,” Trumbo said. “That’s what you have to do. You’ve got to earn a living and play. This was to the point where I severely had to compensate running-wise to the point where I probably wouldn’t be much of an asset on either side.” Wrigley Field, the second-oldest park in the major leagues behind 102-year-old Fenway Park in Boston, opened April 23, 1914, when the Federal League’s Chicago Federals beat the Kansas City Packers 9-1. Fans sang “Happy Birthday” in the middle of the fifth inning, the Cubs wore Federals’ uniforms and the Diamondbacks wore Kansas City Packers’ threads. Before a crowd of 32,323 — about 9,000 under capacity — the Cubs led 5-2 in the ninth. Strop walked Chris Owings on four pitches and Castro allowed Tony Campana’s grounder to kick off his glove for an error. Castro tried to keep his left leg on second as he retrieved the ball, and second base umpire Brian O’Nora called the sliding Owings safe — a decision confirmed by the replay umpire in New York. Pinch-hitter Eric Chavez walked on a

full count, loading the bases, and Gerardo Parra struck out. Prado’s bouncer up the middle bounded off second base, eluding second baseman Darwin Barney and kicking into short right-center field as the Diamondbacks closed to 5-4. “Barney probably would’ve got it, and we would’ve gotten one run out of it,” Gibson said. “Instead it lets the guys advance another base. It was a big hit.” Strop struck out Paul Goldschmidt for the second out. Montero fouled off a 2-2 pitch, took a ball, and then lined a tying single to right. Hill blooped a ball down the right-field line and Justin Ruggiano injured his left hamstring as he tried for a sliding catch near the foul line and the bullpen mound. He needed assistance to leave the field and was replaced by Ryan Kalish. “That was a weird inning,” Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. “I’ve never seen a ball hit the corner of a bag on a ground ball. I know that the way the inning initially started opening up wasn’t too good either, but that’s a first one for me.” Trevor Cahill (1-3) pitched two scoreless innings, for Arizona (6-18), which ended a four-game losing streak, and Addison Reed got his fourth save as the Cubs went quietly in a 1-2-3 ninth. “One of the good things about this team is just everybody keeps being positive,” Prado said.

Young Dawg dominates TONY MCDANIEL Daily Egyptian The Dawgs’ biggest surprise this season came from one of their youngest players. Freshman Michal Kianicka has played in the No. 2 spot for the Salukis for most of the season, playing to a 16-10 record in singles action so far in his career. “I was expecting a tougher start,” Kianicka said. “I played well in the fall semester, and right now I’m also doing good and getting better, but I’ve sort of exceeded expectations.” While Kianicka’s singles record is good, his doubles numbers with sophomore Jonny Rigby are even better. The duo of Rigby and Kianicka are 21-7 this season, and in November they won the Missouri Valley Conference doubles championship. “Mike is an amazing doubles player; he is probably the best player I’ve ever played with or against,” Rigby said. “The way I play sort of compliments him a little bit because I can play from the back and set him up so he can finish the point at the net.” Kianicka’s success as a tennis player started long before he arrived in Carbondale. Kianicka played in international tennis tournaments since 2007, winning several tournaments throughout his career including the International Tennis Federation U-18 Empire Cup, a 64-player tournament held in Kianicka’s home country of Slovakia. The ITF has also ranked Kianicka as high as 102nd in the world. It was qualities like these that made Kianicka so appealing to coach Dann Nelson. “His highest ITF ranking was 102 in the world, so that makes you take notice. That’s very impressive,” Nelson said. “I wasn’t able to see him play, I didn’t even have video actually, so it was a lot on faith.” Kianicka signed with SIU over schools like Wake Forest University, Vanderbilt University and Northwestern University

before making the move from Slovakia to Carbondale. Kianicka said he was nervous about moving to a new country because he would have to deal with new cultures, a new language and balancing tough practices with a demanding school schedule. Kianicka said having teammates who had dealt with the same thing he went through at SIU helped him settle in. “I asked them a lot of questions in the first month,” Kianicka said. “Jorge [Cavero] and Jonny helped me a lot, and I’ll try to help freshmen [in the future.]” Kianicka said one of the strangest parts of living in America is simply how large this country is. “Once coach was telling us, ‘this tournament is close,’” he said. “We were travelling for like four hours, and I was like this isn’t close. We can go from the west of Slovakia to the east of Slovakia in four hours, and here that’s close.” Rigby said Kianicka is a determined teammate, but said he isn’t afraid to make a joke either. “If we’re winning easily and I say

something which he thinks is funny he will imitate my [English] accent, he’s quite funny,” Rigby said. “He’s never really satisfied. He always wants us to go a step further, I think that’s a good aspect to him as well.” The Salukis only have three upper-classmen, meaning they’re a team full of young talent. Looking to the future, Rigby said with Kianicka and him at the helm, he thinks SIU can become a dominant tennis team. “I think we can be really good if we all keep working hard,” Rigby said. “I think it’s important that we all set a good example for any new guys that come in. We’ve got a really good foundation for next year… I think we’ve got potential to be one of the strongest teams in our conference.” Rigby also made a prediction for this season’s MVC Freshman of the Year Award. “For me, he’s been head and shoulders above other freshman in our conference,” Rigby said. “I think it’s worked out and he will deserve that award.”


Freshman tennis player Michal Kianicka plays a volley during a doubles match Saturday at University Courts. Kianicka and doubles partner sophomore Jonny Rigby won the match 8-0 keeping them undefeated in the Missouri Valley Conference. Kianicka was ranked the 102, player in the world by the International Tennis Federation.

My odds worsened with a teammate AARON GRAFF Daily Egyptian Communication is key in team sports and journalism, but when two journalists play sports together, it can get ugly. My challenge this week was a 10-point tiebreaker in tennis against seniors Anita Lee and Korey Love. It was the first and only week I had a teammate, more or less… “Helping me.” Tyler Dixon, a senior from Mounds studying journalism, is my boss. I will not write bad things about his tennis skills, but his career, like mine, should remain in a newsroom. He has more experience in tennis than me, and he would probably beat me, but we should never be tennis teammates again. Even though we were down 3-0 early, we seemed to actually surprise Lee and Love. Dixon’s first serve was in play, and Love crushed it right back at us. Lee then served to me and I surprised myself returning it with a backhand.

Earlier in the year, men’s tennis coach Dann Nelson told me to hit more forehands… I let him down. Regardless of my return, Lee spiked it right back to me and scored the point. We needed to change something up. Dixon told me to give him hand signals before his next serve, even though we never clarified what the signs meant. Women’s tennis coach Audra Anderson said even that can be useful sometimes to make the other team overthink what is coming. It did not help our cause. It may have been because I yelled, “We don’t even know what these signs mean!” Then again, it might not have been. They won the match 10-0. We didn’t return any more of their serves either. I must point out, I did score once against sophomore Jonny Rigby in singles. Even though it was on a double fault, it allows me to blame Dixon for our loss. Who am I kidding? I am 0-10 in this series. Anderson said Lee and Love are the team leaders. The two have been doubles partners for two seasons and have a 31-13 record. Love began playing when she was six, and Lee began when she was 10. Love won the Florida State Singles Championship in 2009, and was ranked 86th in the nation by TennisRecruiting. net.


Korey Love, left, and Anita Lee have been doubles partners for two seasons with a record of 31-13. Lee was named the Missouri Valley Conference Tennis Athlete of the Week Tuesday. She has won the title three times during her career. Love was named Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete last season. Lee was ranked right behind her at 87th and led her high school to four state championships in Nevada. She won the singles championship in 2007 and the doubles championship in 2008. They said Dixon and I would need

a lot of practice and to communicate verbally in the middle of a play, which they do often, to be a better team. We practiced by playing singles against each other, but I would end up hitting it over his head, which made him

chase after the balls. The women’s tennis team competes in the Missouri Valley Conference championships this weekend in Normal, facing Bradley University Friday.
