Farm to Fork

Deans to host listening session, prepare for May 2

VOL. 100 ISSUE 84

ANNA SPOERRE | @AnnaSpoerre

Threats of violence next week have spurred administrators to organize meetings and services aimed at bolstering the safety of the campus community. Students can join a listening session with interim Provost Susan Ford from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Student Center Auditorium, said Lorrie Lefler, assistant to Lori Stettler, vice chancellor for student affairs. All of the deans have been invited as well, she said. Stettler scheduled the open forum following a conversation between her and more than a dozen students Monday morning in response to a racist YouTube video published last week that called for lynchings of black students May 2. Students who plan to attend are encouraged to express any hate-related concerns, such as racism, sexism as well as worries about the state of Illinois’ higher education. Ford also reminded faculty at a meeting Tuesday that classes should occur as planned on May 2, according to an email obtained by the Daily Egyptian from Meera Komarraju, dean of the college of liberal arts. The email advised instructors to hold classes as usual, noting that some students have contacted administrators expressing concerns about not being able to attend classes. Any instructors planning on canceling classes are being asked to submit an Absence Request form in advance. A “Safe Zone” tent will also be set up behind the new Student Services Building on Monday, Komarraju wrote. Departments also have the option of designating their own offices as safe zones. Anna Spoerre can be reached at or 618-536-3325.

Illinoisans in support of veterans’ courts, poll finds ANNA SPOERRE | @AnnaSpoerre

More than half of Illinoisans would be in support of veterans being tried in special veterans’ courts, according to a recent Paul Simon Public Policy Institute poll. The poll was conducted right before Illinois House Bill 5003, which would amend the Veteran and Servicemembers Court Treatment Act, passed from the Illinois House to the Senate last week. “Illinois law currently gives chief judges in each circuit the permission to start a veterans’ court,” said Delio Calzolari, associate director of the institute. Instead of being tried in the same court as civilians, he said, this law would not just allow but require some veterans — depending on the severity of their crime — to

undergo a different hearing. “The general public does have a sense that veterans face issues that are different from civilians and maybe the justice system should pause and deliberate … the fact that veterans may have issues that civilians do not,” Calzolari said. He said some veterans have

unique issues that manifest themselves after their service is completed. The special court would not apply to all veterans, but instead those whose criminality was connected to their military service and who were not charged with violent crimes, said Joe Cervantes,

“The general public does have a sense that veterans face issues that are different from civilians and maybr the justice system should pause and deliberate... the fact that veterans have issues that civilians do not.” - Delio Calzolari associate director, Paul Simon Public Policy Institute


an assistant state’s attorney for Williamson County. “Instead of incarcerating them … we would send them to the treatment that they would normally get from the [Marion Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center],” Cervantez said. Richard Kulich, supervisor of the Veteran’s Justice Outreach Program at the Marion Veterans Affairs, said some people are under the impression that the court is like a “get out of jail free” card for veterans. He said that is not the case. Kulich said his program prevents the unnecessary incarceration of mentally ill veterans, veterans suffering from substance abuse disorders or traumatic brain injury by helping them to get treatment. Although not mentioned in the poll, the implementation of veterans’ courts in the Williamson

County first circuit is being considered, Cervantez said. “It’s just a matter ... of us utilizing the resources that we have in our community to help them out,” he said, referring to the Marion VA. Of those polled by the Simon Institute, 57 percent of Democrats and 55 percent of Republicans were in support of the bill. The results also showed most women and those younger than 35 were in favor of the bill. The institute conducted the scientific poll Feb. 15 through 20 via live telephone interviews of 1,000 registered voters across the state. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. Anna Spoerre can be reached at or 618-536-3325.

Aidan Osborne | @AidanOsborne_DE Caleb Fredrickson, 7, of Carbondale, looks at an “eye of the world” he tied onto a dreamcatcher with the assistance of Randy Osborn, the executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Carbondale, Saturday at Touch of Nature Environmental Center. The club, which partnered with Carbondale Community Arts, received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to implement community art projects, Osborn said. Since then, seven community art projects have been completed through the “Here We Live: Arts Build Community” series. One of the goals of the project was to beat the current world record holder for the largest dreamcatcher, which according to Guinness World Records has a diameter of 9 feet, 10 inches. The dreamcatcher constructed for Saturday has a diameter of 14 feet. “We wanted people to think about the dreams they have, an aspiration,” said Osborn, referring to why participants tied “eyes of the world” onto the dreamcatcher.

Students plan to sit-in outside the chancellor’s office for an hour Tuesday through Thursday, demanding the university resume a search for a professor who specializes in Africana philosophy and AfricanAmerican philosophy. Johnathan Flowers, a doctoral candidate in philosophy from Oak Park, said the administration can expect students to sit in for an hour outside the waiting room of the chancellor’s office starting at 9 a.m. each day until Thursday. About 20 students gathered for the first sit-in for this cause on April 18. Flowers previously told the Daily Egyptian that the department has been trying to get a professor in this position for

the last 10 years, and this is the first year the administration had approval to conduct a search and interview applicants. But Flowers, who is on the hiring committee, said the administration cancelled the search this month because they say the hire would not increase enrollment or the amount of students who declare the field as a major.

Carbondale police are asking for help in finding a local resident, according to a police news release. Brittany Singh, 20, was last seen about 1:54 a.m. April 1.

Open letter: Student government vows to do more to fight racism GRADUATE AND PROFESSIONAL STUDENT COUNCIL

Campus community, As student government representatives, we are being asked now what we are doing to combat this climate of racism and intolerance. The answer is, quite honestly, not enough: We at GPSC recognize and share the frustrations of the students and as student government, we have a responsibility to engage with these issues. Our taskforce on diversity and inclusion policy has been prevented from providing input on diversity policy. We have not seen any diversity policy emerge from the administration with exception of the attempt last semester by several faculty and staff to generate a “diversity plan,” without reaching out to those who would be most affected by it: the students. Immediately upon receiving this preliminary diversity plan, we reached out to SIU President Randy Dunn to verify its authenticity and voice our displeasure at not being consulted in its drafting. It is our position that any plan to address issues of diversity and inclusion must include the voices of the students, not just the faculty. As a result of our concern, the plan was pulled and conversations to draft another have been limited, and perhaps forgotten, in light of other issues such as the budget crisis. GPSC has representation on

the Affirmative-Action Advisory Committee, a committee formed of faculty and staff, which aims to advise the administration on issues of affirmative action as it affects the Carbondale campus. This committee has not met during the 2015-16 academic year, despite repeated requests by student government to convene the committee so that we can begin the hard work of dealing with these issues in a proactive way, as opposed to a reactive way. It is our position that the failure to convene this committee has directly contributed to the current campus climate. In light of the steadily worsening climate of racism and intolerance on our campus, GPSC will do whatever is in our power to be proactive rather than reactive to these important issues. The time is now to engage the issues facing not just the black students on our campus, but all of our diverse students and underrepresented groups. Further, we demand that a diversity action plan committee be called, with the charge of drafting a campus wide diversity action plan, which must include the input of those most affected by the plan: the students. For the campus to go this long without a plan that enables the campus to address these issues as they arise, and take steps to prevent them, is inexcusable. In order to ensure the safety and

security of all students, graduate, professional, and undergraduate, we call upon the administration, and ourselves, to take up this difficult task so that everyone will not only be accepted, but welcomed on campus. Finally, as one constituency group that represents the student body, we invite you to make your voices heard make us accountable for where we have failed to address those issues closest to you. Student Government cannot function effectively without input from the students it represents, all of them, regardless of race, gender expression, sexuality, or ability status. We would therefore like to invite all students to attend our town hall meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the John C. Guyon Auditorium at Morris Library to express your frustrations and work collaboratively with us to resolve this situation. We, your student government, can do better, and will do better. We also call for everyone on May 2, whether you attend or teach classes, to wear a #noracism shirt, provided by GPSC, or a black shirt to let everyone know the Salukis will not stand for racism and intolerance on our campus. For safety purposes, and due to upcoming final exams there will be no event attached to this call for action. Graduate and Professional Student Council can be reached at

Letter to the editor: How the Student Conduct Code relates to hate speech STEVE SAWYER | SIU staff member

This may be a new idea to many, but the freedom of speech, as guaranteed in the Constitution, can be limited. It is often limited by voluntary organizations that can hold their members to a higher standard than an unaffiliated citizen. One example is our very own SIU, which states in its Student Conduct Code from section 1.4: “All members of the SIU community are held to a higher standard of conduct than those who have not chosen to become a part of

the university community.” Specifically, the code limits speech by prohibiting the following behavior, from section “Unreasonable Conduct – Intentional conduct, without a legitimate purpose, which both does cause a person distress or fear and would cause a reasonable person distress or fear. No threat or overt act of violence is required for conduct to be unreasonable.” And this from section 2.5.5: “Disorderly Conduct – Acting in an unreasonable manner which has the potential to disturb or alarm another person or to provoke a

breach of the peace.” So, as long as you are a student of or employee for SIU, behaving like a racist a-hole is not only ignorant, it is expressly forbidden. By including these lines, SIU has already made its decision on where it stands on hate speech. Now, it is a matter of these limits being enforced. Steve Sawyer, of Carbondale, is an employee at Morris Library. Join the conversation with us on Facebook and Twitter. Letters to the editor can be submitted to




5 ways Amazon Prime is better than Netflix JACOB PIERCE | @JACOBPIERCE1_DE

The modern entertainment world finds itself in a war of streaming services. HBO Go, Crackle and Amazon Prime are all trying to compete with the giant that is Netflix. Here are the five reasons Amazon Prime is better than Netflix. 5. Amazon Prime Benefits While needing a full Amazon Prime account to use the service will not be required soon, the company is working to have a separate Prime Video deal. Those with the full package will have plenty more than the average Netflix user. Free two-day shipping, free same-day delivery, kindle first access and savings on video games are just some of the perks to having the full account. Amazon is a huge part of the shopping industry and having a Prime Account helps a ton. 4. Newer film collection Netflix’s overall film collection is downgrading in quality. Yet, it still beats Amazon Prime’s entire collection — one full of bland movies such as "Avengers Grimm" and "Leprechaun Origins." But Amazon Prime blows Netflix out of the water when it comes to new movies. "The End of the Tour" and "Ex Machina" are two amazing movies that came out last year and already are on Prime, missing Netflix completely. 3. Add-on Subscriptions Several streaming services have add-on subscriptions where you can get even more content with your account if you are paying for

a certain TV station. Netflix is not one of those. Amazon Prime on the other hand is, and it has a wide selection. Anything from Showtime and Starz to the Tribeca Shortlist and Dramafever instantly can be added to your account. 2. "Doctor Who" While I personally may have

fallen out of the "Doctor Who" fandom, there are many Whovians out there and Amazon Prime is one of the only places to get it. Prime has all of the episodes, along with both spin-offs, "Torchwood" and "The Sarah Jane Adventures," and most of the recent specials of both David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor and Matt

Smith’s Eleventh Doctor. 1. HBO Shows Many will say that if one is looking for an HBO show, they might as well just get HBO Go. But for those of us with Amazon Prime, this is just as good of a place to look at. Shows like "The Wire" and "The Sopranos," both of which have

made TV history, are on Prime, waiting for people to dive right in. Along with these, terrific mini-series like "John Adams" and "Generation Kill" are in the collection. Jacob Pierce can be reached at or 618-536-3325.





Saluki softball’s defense struggling after one of the best starts in NCAA SEAN CARLEY | @SCARLEYDE

After smoothly sailing through the first half of the season, one of SIU softball's greatest strengths have hit some rough waters. Over the last nine games, SIU has committed 12 errors, which coach Kerri Blaylock said has cost the team some wins. The Salukis committed three errors in the nightcap of the April 19 doubleheader to Evansville, a 3-2 loss that put SIU on a three-game losing skid. "Without [the errors] we win that game 2-0," Blaylock said after the game. "It was about the errors. We have pitched well enough to win the last three ball games." Before the rough patch, on April 11, the Salukis had the 16th-best fielding percentage in Division I (.974). Ten days — and 11 errors — later, they stood at 43rd (.969). "There's going to be times where we hit road blocks," said senior shortstop Kelsey Gonzalez. "Especially when we get into conference play, a lot of teams are going to try a lot of things on our pitching because they can't hit it very hard." April 16 against Indiana State, the Sycamores bunted nine times and the Salukis committed four errors in the contest. SIU's pitching has tried to make up for the defensive errors themselves. In those same 10 days, Saluki pitchers have allowed just three earned runs across 43 innings. The pitchers are not exempt from fielding — some hurlers have contributed to their own demise. Freshman Brianna Jones committed two of the errors in the six games. The team went 2-4 in that span, three of those losses were by one run.

Sean Carley | @SCarleyDE Freshman third baseman Hanna Stam throws toward first base during the second game of SIU’s doubleheader against Evansville on April 19 at Charlotte West Stadium. Stam went 0-2 with a strikeout in the game. SIU lost both games on the day.

"The last couple games have kind of showed us that one more play on defense, we probably win that game even if our offense hasn't been producing as many runs," Gonzalez said. In those six games, SIU scored 2.1 runs per game, nearly three runs less than its average before that time. Blaylock said the team's offensive struggles may have translated over to the defense. "Our lack of hitting began to affect our defense," Blaylock said. "We're such a young team, I thought we might have a period during the year where there may be a struggle here or

there, but they're very receptive and work very hard at it." The youth of the team also plays a part in the learning curve, Blaylock said. SIU routinely has freshmen or sophomores at five of the nine positions in any game. The opponents during the recent stretch, Indiana State and Evansville, both played a brand of small ball by keeping the ball in the park and forcing fielders to make plays. Because these strategies require infielders to be on top of their game, junior first baseman Shaye Harre said the team has to be ready when they play those types of teams.

discus, which was a facility record. "I actually didn't know I broke the record until I saw it in the news release today," he said. "We head back to Indiana State in two weeks for the Missouri Valley Conference Championships so hopefully I can break it again."


"There's going to be times where we make mistakes and that's OK," Gonzalez said. "When we make a mistake, the next person that gets that ball makes the play and that shuts it down so one error doesn't turn into two or three." Over the last couple of weeks, Blaylock has devoted large portions of practice towards situational defense. Harre said these defense sessions take up a good majority of practice. "The slapping, the bunting, all those moving runners creates a lot of confusion," Blaylock said. "We're trying to create enough

confusion in practice, so the game seems kind of normal." The intense devotion seemed to have worked. This past weekend, SIU committed one error across a threegame set at Bradley. The Salukis won all three games for their first sweep on the road this season. "We're just trying to grit it out and play defense confidently like we were in the beginning of the season," Gonzalez said. Sean Carley can be reached at scar@ or at 618-536-3307.

Senior thrower Josh Freeman was named Tuesday the Missouri Valley Conference Men's Field Athlete of the Week for the third consecutive week following wins at the Pacesetter Invitational.

"It's really nice to see the hard work you put in during the offseason get recognized," Freeman said. "It's been a really good season so far, and I'm working hard to get better and better every week." The three-time All-American won the shot put with a toss of 19.20 meters at this week's meet. He followed the win with 55.72-meter throw in the

After securing one of the biggest wins in SIU men’s tennis history, one player is taking home an award. Senior Jonny Rigby was named the Missouri Valley Conference’s Men’s Tennis Athlete of the Week for the fifth time after winning both his doubles and singles matches Saturday, helping the Salukis beat No. 46 Drake on Saturday for the first time since 2009. In the final regular season matches of his career, he defeated Drake senior Ben Lott in three sets. Rigby and his partner junior Piotr Baranski, who won the award last week, beat the Drake team of sophomores Ben Wood and Bayo Philips. The wins bring Rigby to 143 victories combined, good for No. 2 in SIU history. The Lancashire, England native is No. 1 in alltime doubles victories for SIU,

SIU men’s golf wins first MVC championship JACOB GAERTNER | @JGAERTNERDE

The Saluki men's golf team won its first Missouri Valley Conference Championship in program history Tuesday at Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, Kan., with a score of 877, 37-over-par. The victory ends an eight-year championship winning streak for Wichita State, which finished second this year at 48-overpar. The Dawgs finished in fifth place in the regular season MVC standings out of nine teams, while the Shockers were first according to GolfStat. The Shockers have finished in first or second in the MVC tournament each of the last 20 years. "From the time our guys arrived on campus in August, everything we've done was preparing to win this conference championship," head coach Justin Fetcho said to Saluki Athletics. "I'm so excited for these guys because they've worked extremely hard. To see it all come together is very, very special." SIU was led by junior Brandon Carlson, who placed third and shot 5-over-par during the three

rounds. Freshmen Peyton Wilhoit, +8, and Luke Gannon, +12, both finished in the top 10. Junior Matt Greenfield, +13, finished in a five-way tie for 11th place. Carlson and Wilhoit were named to the MVC AllConference team and Fetcho was named MVC Coach of the Year. Fetcho said the team started out great, but hit some rough patches toward the middle. He said he's proud of how the team fought through the adversity. Carlson had a slow start Tuesday, scoring a double bogey on the third hole, but finished with 70 for the day. "I didn't let it get to me and slip away. The team needed me, and I gave it my all," Carlson said in a release. "I was going head-to-head with the Wichita guy for a while and I put the dagger in on the last three holes." Wilhoit led the field after Day One after shooting 68, and remained in first after a Day Two score of 73. "It's a dream come true," SIU's only senior Drew Novara told SIU Athletics. "I don't think anyone

outside of our team really understood how much talent we have." Novara finished at 25-over-par and tied for 33rd place. Illinois State freshman Trent

Wallace had the best individual score in the championship, finishing 1-over-par. SIU's previous best finish in the tournament was last year's

second-place ranking.


Brechtelsbauer. She still stands as the fourthwinningest coach in Missouri Valley Conference history. Current coach Kerri Blaylock — who was an assistant coach from 1991 to 1999 under Brechtelsbauer — said she wouldn't be coaching today if it weren't for Brechtelsbauer.

SIU's winningest softball coach in program history will have her name immortalized this weekend. The field at Charlotte West Stadium will be named after Saluki Hall-of-Famer Kay Brechtelsbauer during a dedication ceremony Saturday.

“She gave her professional career to Saluki softball. She’s so deserving of having this done. I’m really extremely happy for her.” - Kerri Blaylock current coach

"It's hard to express how honored I am," Brechtelsbauer said in a release. "We started off with just an open field; we had no backstop and pounded stakes in the ground each practice for bases. I was very fortunate to work for Dr. Charlotte West, and I had great players and great support from the administration. We have come a long way, and I'm so pleased that the growth of the program has continued." Brechtelsbauer served as Saluki softball coach for 32 years and won 633 games during her tenure. SIU made five Women's College World Series appearances under

"She was so good to me," Blaylock said. "She turned it into a full-time position. I had sent my resume out across the country, and she said she could scrape together $5,000 for me and took a chance on me." The dedication ceremony takes place before the noon doubleheader Saturday at Charlotte West Stadium against Northern Iowa. "She gave her professional career to Saluki softball," Blaylock said. "She's so deserving of having this done. I'm really extremely happy for her." Sean Carley can be reached at or at 618-536-3307.
