Concerns arise over liquor commission


Communities unite, honor hero

TARA KULASH Daily Egyptian The City Council may have come to a tie vote on the renewal of Fat Patties' liquor license, but owner and council member Lance Jack refuses to give up without a fight. Jack said he not only plans to appeal the case but to ask council members to review whether the local liquor commission process has even been conducted legally. The Carbondale Revised Code allows City Council members to hold a liquor license, but Mayor Joel Fritzler said two other points are key factors. “It’s clear the state law says members of a local liquor commission shall not have a liquor license, and city code says members of the City Council shall be the local liquor commission,� he said. This means that while Jack’s role as a council member does not keep him from holding the license, his role as a liquor commissioner does and Jack said this is where he sees an error.

Members of the Elkville Fire Department console each other after DuQuoin firefighter Corey Shaw’s funeral, which took place Wednesday outside Sacred Heart Catholic Church in DuQuoin. Shaw, 22, was killed

while battling a fire Friday in Pickneyville. Members of more than 55 fire departments throughout Illinois attended the funeral and parked fire trucks bumper to bumper for two city blocks.

Students forced to drop political science course Cheng: Human error, not lack of funding to blame LAUREN LEONE Daily Egyptian An administrative error in the department of political science left nearly fifty students in search of another course to take this summer, said Alan Vaux, dean of the College of Liberal Arts. Vaux said the classes should have been canceled as soon as the department received its budget allocations in April, due to a lack of funding. Three political science courses were canceled, he said. One class had four students and another had 11, he said. There were 34 students enrolled in the course, Politics and the Media, the day it canceled, Vaux said. Another class, Introduction to American Government and Politics, had 35 students enrolled. Students were initially told it was cancelled, however the course will be offered during the second summer session instead because it is a core class for some graduating seniors, he said. Chancellor Rita Cheng said the error occurred due to a lack of communication between the dean’s office and the department. Vaux said he learned the first day of summer session, June 13, from the department chair, Robert Clinton, that the classes needed to be canceled, and he, along with David DiLalla, associate dean of the College of Liberal


Nick Bates is one of 34 students enrolled in the Politics and the Media, a course that was supposed to occur in summer semester. The class is required for political science majors but was

cancelled at the last minute by the university. “Normally when you think of classes being cancelled, you think it’s due to low enrollment, not when a class is completely full,� Bates said.

Arts, took immediate action and canceled the three classes. This was a departmental administrative error, he said. “It may be that if we called Chancellor Cheng right away and said we have this many classes and one of them has this enrollment (and asked) ‘Will you provide us the funds?’ it may be that she may have provided those funds,� Vaux said. “I don’t know.� Vaux said he is concerned about the possibility that the university could not fund classes even where adequate enrollment would

have paid for salary dollars. But, Cheng said she had committed to all the deans in earlier meetings to help with the budget shortfall if there were classes fully enrolled and in need of funding. “Tuition revenue is a very important component of our budget and so when students enroll in courses, they bring with them important tuition revenue,� Cheng said. “It would be counter to our growth to cancel classes that are fully enrolled.� Philip Habel, assistant professor of political science, said Clinton notified him the Fri-

day before classes began to advise students to drop the course. Habel said the chair told him that costs of the course, which include salary and operating costs, could not be covered. “At one point, like any course, I wasn’t sure we would have sufficient enrollment,� Habel said. “But once we had (10 students) I had assumed we were fine.� Nick Bates, a junior from Bronzeville studying criminal justice, said he was enrolled in the Politics and the Media course and was told a lack of funding was the cause of the cancellation. “My idea is the university wants their money, so when a class is completely filled up, that means the university is actually getting their money. So the question becomes then, why are they canceling the class?� Bates said. “Normally when you think of classes being canceled, you think it’s due to low enrollment, not when a class is completely full.� Although 34 students were enrolled in Politics and the Media, Vaux said the class had to be canceled because the funding was not available. “I know that in retrospect, this looks like, ‘Why would we not fund a class that’s fully enrolled?’ But it’s a complicated situation,� Vaux said. “Summer instructional budget and scheduling is done differently than the rest of the year in fall and spring.� In August 2010, each department solicited interest from faculty about what they would like to teach the next summer session, he said. The College of Liberal Arts has more than 18 departments and offers more than 150 summer courses, he said. Please see CLASSES | 3

Jack’s attorney, Alfred Sanders Jr., said he researched the issue and responded to Jack with a letter that said; “In short, I would say there is not a problem with you holding the license, but the final answer may shake Carbondale up a bit.” Sanders said he found a section in the State Liquor Control Act that says the Carbondale mayor is to be the local liquor commissioner. The letter said the courts give direct authority to the executive branch for control over administrative matters. Sanders said this means the the mayor has the only say on the passage of liquor licenses. Therefore, it would be acceptable if Fritzler chose to appoint the council as his advisory board, but Sanders said the board would then only serve to give Fritzler its opinion. He said only the mayor could make the final decision. “When the council (legislative branch) decided to make themselves the liquor commission, it stripped away the authority of the executive branch,” Sanders said in the letter. He said this violates the separation of powers doctrine, which says, “The powers of the council or board shall be purely legislative except as may be otherwise provided by any other act.” Sanders said when the doctrine says “any other act,” it does not mean Carbondale law; it means state code. “What we’ve done is basically create a hybrid system that is not

allowed under state code,” Jack said. Sanders said this approach would work if Carbondale worked under a commission form of government like Marion. However, the city follows a managerial form of government. In his letter Sanders said this means “most of the administrative duties of the executive branch are transferred to a city manager, which in Carbondale is Allen Gill.” For this reason, he said he’s not sure whether Fritzler or Gill should actually be the commissioner. The city’s attorney, Mike Kimmel, said he believes the liquor commission board is lawful because Carbondale has home rule. Home rule is automatically granted to towns with a population over 25,000. Sanders said the town can make its laws more restrictive than state law, but not more lenient. Jack said he believes that even if he’s wrong about the commission board, though, he still shouldn’t have to serve on it. “There is nothing in state code that says I must fulfill all duties as an elected official to hold that seat,” Jack said. “I’ve been elected to be a council member. If I choose not to be a liquor commissioner, that should be my choice.” Jack said he resigned from his council seat in the past because his liquor license was denied three times in a row. He said now that he has acquired a license and has been voted back into his council seat by the community, it has proven that the town history and department priorities. “For decades, departments always propose for more courses than (COLA) can fund. For the summer of 2011, COLA’s 18 departments requested about $150,000 more than the available funding of $392,000,” Vaux said. The political science department requested approximately $67,000, although its average

doesn’t need him as a liquor commissioner. “(The citizens are) saying, ‘We’re willing to elect someone who has a restaurant liquor license knowing that they’re not going to be able to vote on liquor issues, and we still want him to be our elected representative,” Jack said. He said all he wants is an outside

opinion on the matter, but he would need a majority of the council in favor of the idea to get it. So far, he said no one else on the board has given a positive response. Sanders said he thinks it’s because the council is “afraid that they’re going to have egg on their face.” He said as far as he knows, the incorrect process has

been around for years before any of the current members were in office. Sanders said it’s not their fault the ordinance was passed, so they shouldn’t be embarrassed to recognize that it’s wrong and fix it.

allocations have been about $30,000 for the past five years, he said. Once each department receives its budget from the provost in mid-spring, it is the department chair’s responsibility to decide which courses can be offered, which faculty will teach and to cancel all other courses, Vaux said. Chancellor Rita Cheng said

she worked with all deans directly to make sure each college had adequate salary dollars for any summer class that could be filled. However, Vaux said once the department received its budget, several courses — these and others — should have been canceled back in April when department chairs received their budget allocations. “Obviously, if (the dean’s office)

had known beforehand that a department had left a course on the schedule and that it had enrolled well, we would have sought alternative sources of funding,” he said. “But we didn’t know. COLA has no available funds, and we did not believe that other sources of funds would be available.” Robert Clinton could not be reached for comment.

College of Business students get hands on iPad 2 TIFFANY JOHNSON Daily Egyptian Yasmin Taylor says she would change majors if it meant she could have an iPad 2. "Shoot, I would've been a business major when I was a freshman if I would've gotten an iPad 2," said Taylor, a senior from Chicago studying English. Jill Gebke, director of enrollment management in the College of Business, said students in the college who live in Brown Hall will be provided with their own iPad 2 for the 2011-2012 academic year as part of the iPad U program. In 2008, the Board of Trustees approved an increase in COB students' tuition that replaced the COB's previous technology fee, Gebke said. The average cost of an iPad 2 is $500, according to Apple's official website. Although Taylor said she believes the program is a great opportunity, not all students are on board. Darrian Washington, a senior from Chicago studying marketing, said she isn't happy with the program. “It costs a ridiculous amount to even be a College of Business student, and the fact that they are

spending it on frivolous things (upsets me)," she said. Brandon Castleberry, a senior from Chicago studying workforce education, said he didn't understand how the COB would

provide funding for the iPads. But he said he believes the technology could be beneficial. “I think it’s beneficial for the students because nowadays we use technology everyday and in every

way, so why not incorporate iPads into education?” he said. The program will allow students to be active learners and keep their interest in education, said Meredith Thomas, chief marketing officer for

the COB. She said it will provide students with the opportunity to enhance their educational experience. Gebke said by using the iPads, students will now have the ability to use the technology and software they may use in the workforce after graduation. The iPads will come with educational software, but students will also be able to use the device for their leisure, said Matthew Purdy, associate director of career services and placement in the COB. If the iPad U program proves to be successful by the end of the year, Gebke said she hopes to give all students the opportunity to participate in the program. Taylor said she hopes that other colleges implement the iPad U program so she has a chance to use the device herself. “I think the program is a wonderful opportunity for college students because it provides students with the technology they might not otherwise have access to,” Taylor said.

JAMES DURBIN Daily Egyptian I had no idea what I was getting into when I offered my services as a journalist to Missionary Flights International, a relief organization that transports supplies and missionaries to Haiti. I stepped off the plane in Cap-Haitien carrying a single bag with two cameras, two pairs of pants, two shirts and some mosquito repellant, ready for whatever the country would throw at me. It seemed at least half of the country’s inhabitants were congregating outside the airport doors, staring at me as I walked out with the missionary, who was to house and feed me. I was not ready for Haiti, but I adapted quickly. I went there in order to see what life was like in this tiny country that so often appears on U.S. news because of its terrible

tragedies. What I saw shocked me. The government rarely benefits the people, the crumbling i n f r a s t r u c t u re and roadways are several generations old, many building projects are started, yet few are finished, hot water and purified water are rare commodities, and the idea of a working sewage system or trash collection service are decades from actually happening. Despite all the despair, I did see some glimmers of hope. I spent several days at an orphanage that receives money from U.S. sponsors and is the result of year’s worth of work for Ray and Bonnie VanSlyke, who are originally from New York. Bonnie and Ray are called “momma” and “daddy” by 29

It is nearly impossible to display what Haiti is like in one small space; the breathtaking natural beauty was in sharp contrast to the filth and poverty of people in need. I am grateful for the experience and will let the images tell the story of these people and perhaps make those in this area more aware of what is taken for granted.

Concert-goers are in for a frenzy of foot-stomping DARCE OLUND Daily Egyptian While audiences may be caught off guard by the French lyrics, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the more interesting and unique aspects of Dennis Stroughmatt and Creole Stompâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music. Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sunset Concert at Turley Park, will feature the band Mississippi River Valley French Creole Music. The tunes are catchy, reminiscent of a Louisiana-style story. The fiddling in every song inspires foot tapping thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to stop. With hundreds of previous events under their belt, the band is no stranger to playing outdoor venues. Lead singer, accordion and fiddle player Dennis Stroughmatt said he was unsure of the exact number, but is certain the band has played more than 200 outside shows. According to the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, the most common reaction from audiences is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;who are they, and where do they come from?â&#x20AC;? Stroughmatt founded the Illinois-based band in 2002 right here in Carbondale. He has been playing the fiddle for more than 20 years and was taught to play Creole and Cajun style accordion by his inspirations, Dexter and Morris Ardoin. The musical style of the band is a tribute to the old sounds of Cajun and Zydeco with an updated twist. The Creole Stomp section is made up of Robert Russel,



troughmatt said his favorite thing about being in a band is the ability to share their music with fun-loving crowds all around the country.

Rob Crumm and Jon Watson. Russel, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the blues man,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; is also a Carbondale native and plays lead guitar, slide guitar, lap steel guitar and provides vocals. Crumm, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the ace of bass,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; plays bass guitar, guitar, banjo, accordion and mandolin. Watson, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the dawg,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; plays drums, mandolin and banjo. Stroughmatt said some artists who influence him include Creole fiddler Canray Fontenot, Western swing singer/fiddler Wade Ray and Cajun swing fiddler Hadley Castille. The group recently released a fourth album, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things I Might Have Been,â&#x20AC;? which Stroughmatt said

is sort of like a tribute to Ray. Ray heavily influenced Stroughmatt as his mentor while he was in graduate school at SIUC in the mid â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s. Stroughmatt said his favorite thing about being in a band is the ability to share their music with fun-loving crowds all around the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always love to have Carbondale on our touring schedule when time permits,â&#x20AC;? said Stroughmatt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love to play music and entertain. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who we are.â&#x20AC;?

Youths take joy in summer camps CORY DOWNER Daily Egyptian Summer youth camps are offered across the nation, but the Recreation Center caters its local youth with shorter themed camps to get kids involved in a variety of activities. While some camps across the region extend for weeks or months at a time, Kathy Hollister, the assistant director of recreational sports and services, said the Recreation Center offers a wide range of week long camps instead. She said the camps help kids get a better understanding of what is available, while also giving them the educational guidance to help them succeed. Hollister, said the camps give children the opportunity to mix recreation with history

Hollister said she researched some older games such as kite flying, hop-scotch and jacks.She said she was amazed to find out how old they were and how popular they still are today.

he Cardinals are 2-8 in their last 10 games but have continued to stay at the top of the NL Central.

It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be easy, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to continue to ask the younger players to step up and play an even bigger role on the team. Besides that, the bullpen needs to quit giving up nine runs in a single inning.

The Cardinals are going to need a miracle to win the NL Central this year. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually surprised they held on this long; injuries have plagued them all year. Their only hope is not to fall more than 10 games behind with Pujols out, then hope he is his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;06 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;08 self when he returns.



irst, fix their bullpen and get a better effort from their starters. Second, have someone fill in for the offensive void left by Pujols; and third, pray.
