Open Mic showcases rising talent
by Jim Nance Times Staff Reporter
Tuesday, April 17, was an explosive day of talent and expression at MATC in the T Building auditorium. The Phoenix Open Mic event had students flocking in just before 12:30 p.m. to register to perform or just to take a seat. As you entered the auditorium you would have been greeted by the current President of the Phoenix Literacy and Arts Society (PLAS), Jeff Henry. Laid out on the table were copies of the 2011 Phoenix for purchase for $5 and the new publication “Phoenix Now” given for free. PLAS Open Mic events capture the attention of those who can appreciate raw talent and relish in thought provoking literary
imagery. Jeff Mosgaller, resident of West Allis, came to support his friend, Richard Plevak, III. “It’s great to come out to listen from one storyteller to another,” says Mosgaller, about his invitation to the event. You might be a spectator the first half, but by the second half you might have something in the back of your mind ready to share with the crowd. Performers came from all campuses to enlighten the audience with their artistry. Jason Kolodzyk, Faculty Advisor of The Phoenix and English Instructor, set the crowds tone with the rules of the Open Mic. Very simply and accommodating to all, just be mindful of the language being used and audience respect the performer. After each artist has performed, show them some love.
With that awareness out the way, Vice-President of PLAS, Brandon Haut started to emcee the show. Each performer stood up and got to the microphone, giving the audience a spectacular array of emotions. Some artists made you really think, others put your heart in a sullen mood. No matter who you are or where you sat in the auditorium, you were among those who felt the positive affects of true talent. Malcolm Lane, student from the Downtown Campus, set the mood for the Open Mic with his powerful poem entitled “Love Coat.” He electrically charged the audience with his poise and articulated thoughts. Next, Yung Thompson, student from the North Campus, shared a
powerful essay of poverty in Korea. The silence was amazing as she captivated the audience, intensely listening to her story. Thunderous applause echoed after she finished reading her essay, however, on her face the emotions still loomed. The Phoenix organized a tremendous event for individuals to participant and also to enjoy as spectators. They are really innovators for the community as well as for the students of MATC. Get involved! The next Open Mic will be on May 1st at the West Campus. The theme for that Open Mic will be “Rebirth”, so mark your calendars and come to support PLAS. You just might find out more than imagined about yourself through expression.
was a bit nervous, but about a half hour later it was smooth sailing,” Phoenix Literary and Arts wants to find ways to partner with the Milwaukee-area community. Their organization wants to build a relationship with libraries, local schools, art galleries, and bookstores. The Phoenix Literary and Arts Society (PLAS) welcome those who have the passion and artistic integrity to express their work for their publication. Established in1969, ‘The Phoenix’ in contrast to the ‘Times’ is an individual expression through writing, art, and photography. Even though they were not an official organization, they have been a presence on the campus of MATC for years as an annual publication distributed called “Phoenix”. While speaking with Henry, he discussed his upcoming
plans for the organization and the community. Henry said, “Our publication is currently distributed at Open Mic events and is called ‘Phoenix Now’.” When asked about how The Phoenix will compare to other campus publications, Henry stated ‘It would be small in its content, but would give you a variety to glance over and anticipate the grand publication combining the work for that year collected’. Forging together with The MATC Times, The Phoenix will now be showcased on the Times website, giving their artists twice the exposure and more opportunities to get others involved in their projects from this partnership. In addition, you can find ‘The Phoenix’ through their website www. matcphoenix.com, Phoenix Now,
and the MATC2Go Application. PLAS will continue to soar as an organization, giving back to the community great talent such as Kwame Grayson, Artist, who will be featured on the cover of the recent “Phoenix Now” distributed at the Open Mic on April 17. Jason M. Kolodzyk, English Instructor and Faculty Adviser for The Phoenix, maintains the order and responsibility of the content produced for the Phoenix. Kolodzyk stated in his email “Beyond the Open Mic events and the two Phoenix publications, we hope to work with other student organizations at MATC as well as other departments at MATC in order to create a more diverse experience for all involved.”
The Phoenix - forever evolving

Deep within us are dormant unique abilities unseen by human eyes, waiting to be harnessed through the manifestation of our talents.

Spring has sprung…
by Robyn Wiggill Times Reporter
When asked what Spring break means to me I immediately envision hours of lounging around in fields of daffodils. I think of the time I will spend sitting outside sipping on lemonade, and relaxing in the dabbled sunshine. Imagines of baseball games, tailgating and of course brats grilling come to mind. Hmmm…I can almost taste the freedom that is spring break! Realistically when I think about what I will do over spring break, I know this is the week that I will finally find the time to catch up on all my schoolwork. I am hoping to also catch up with a few friends. It will be a week to celebrate Easter and all that is included in the celebration of Christ’s life. But those are just my predictions, so let’s see what really happens… So what did my spring break entail? I spent about 50% of it catching up on articles, presentations and online assessments. Doesn’t sound so fun, huh? But it also entailed spending a fun night with a few of my close friends. I got to catch up on their lives and let them know what was happening in mine. I introduced a German friend of mine to the American “tradition” of beer pong. We all went on an
Easter egg hunt, at night, with flashlights. I also got to spend time with my boyfriend’s family. We were invited to Easter lunch on Sunday. There was lots of food, colorful eggs and people (many of which I am still trying to work out how they fit into his family.) We also had an Easter basket hunt for the youngest member of their family. The basket was hidden in a tree so it took 4 year old Hunter a little time to realize he is living in a 3D world and to look up instead of just at eye level. Day four of my spring break was a buckle down and do all my homework done day. Not much fun but very productive! Tuesday was my girl power day! A friend of mine called me to ask me to bring over some gas, since her car wouldn’t start. I figured it was probably a battery, not gas problem, so I came over with jump leads instead. Two girls, two cars and a dead battery…a car manual and a little confusion later we figured out how to jump start a car. I won’t lie, I was really nervous I was going to shock myself or blow up the car. Is that even possible? If you have never jump started a car before, let me give you a quick run-down. You have to first of all figure out how to open the hood (or bonnet) which is not
as easy as it sounds. Then you attach the red plug to the positive side of the dead battery, then red to the positive side of the booster car, black on the negative of the dead battery and lastly black on the negative on the booster battery, in that order. Once you have hooked up the batteries you start the booster car, then the second car (which should be charged enough by now to start.) After three or so minutes you can remove to cables in reverse order. So black cable of the booster car, black cable of the dead battery car, red cable of the booster car, red cable of the dead battery car. Done! On Wednesday I joined a friend and her kids on a nationwide adventure. We went to Betty Brinn (children’s museum) which is perfect for children…and children at heart. The Weebles coast to coast 50 State adventure is the museums featured exhibit. I was able to discover many things about the United States, and saw some information on some states I have already visited. It also got me thinking of the summer since I am planning a 19 state 14 day road trip from Wisconsin to Maine and back. Time to start planning that I guess - wish me luck! The next two days I spent with my host family visiting Kids in Motion, which is an interaction driven-fun filled-house for
Established by Milwaukee Institute of Technology Student Council, March 1960
children. The next day we visited the Milwaukee Zoo. The zoo is tons of fun, but lots of walking! After watching the male peacocks showing off for the females, the elephants flapping their big ears and the lions looking hungrily at me I was beat, pretty much ready to get into bed and sleep (and this was only 2 p.m.) No wonder kids need afternoon naps! Saturday was substituted for “fat kid Friday” where Tyler and I have a relaxed day of sweatpants and fun food (also known as fat kid food) this is also the day I realized I should probably go for a run since summer is just around the corner, and bikinis aren’t the most flattering outfits. So I did go for a run, 2 miles in total plus down and up the 100 steps it takes to get to Lake Michigan and back. The run is done, and I felt great! On Sunday I went with my boyfriend on his apartment search. We discovered pretty much everywhere in Milwaukee that you do not want to live, and maybe one or two you would consider living in. That was my Spring break! I may not have grilled brats at Miller Park or sipped lemonade in the sun, or even laid in a field of daffodils, however I did have a great week with awesome friend and a few fun memories. I hope you spring break was one to remember!

COMPACT REPLAY by DUANE RODRIGUEZ These two women have seen better days going into their respective releases and one has stepped up their game while the other is sorta floundering about. Bonnie Raitt has always been a killer guitarist and underrated vocalist but mismanagement and silly career decisions have had her leave two record labels. So she did what any other artist with the smarts upstairs would do – start her own label. Bonnie Raitt Slipstream (Redwing) really hits the spot and is proof and returns her once again to the top of her game. Maybe it was motivation, maybe it was the choice of material but on her previous couple releases, the fire was missing. Not here. While first single “Right Down The Line” with it’s reggae influence is a good indication of something special, one listen to her front porch foot stompin’ rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Million Miles” will seal the deal. Eight of the albums’ 12 tracks were self-produced by Raitt with Joe Henry managing the other four. Raitt has made great decisions on what material to use on this effort. It’s a great cross between upbeat rockers and gorgeous ballads, showcasing her brilliant guitar work or her poignant vocals.
Counting Crows gets emotional
Standouts include the above mentioned as well as “Not Cause I Wanted To,” “Down To You,” “Split Decision,” another Dylan gem with “Standing In The Doorway” and “Ain’t Gonna Let You Go” is an amazing example of Raitt’s guitar work. Not so good is Joan Osborne’s Bring It On Home (Saguaro Road) and this is a drag. Osborne’s latest is an album of covers… again! In 2002 she released How Sweet It Is, in 2007 we got Breakfast In Bed and now 2012 rings in Bring It On Home. At this rate she’s gonna run out of other peoples hits to sing. I try not to complain but really? REALLY? There’s nothing wrong with covering others material but when you tackle other’s hits, the songs that are ingrained into our psyche, it’s an almost impossible task to give them a fair shake. Here she pretty much does these songs note for note, why would anyone be interested in this if the artist won’t (or can’t) add their own unique stylings. Hey Osborne can sing, she’s one of the best out there but offers nothing here, which is such a disappointment. She stays busy by working on an album of new material and working with a band called Trigger Hippy, which is good news. Well it’s good news as long as they don’t release an album of covers. A while back I mentioned that The Rolling Stones have a web site StonesArchives.com that releases full length concerts and merchandise from past tours. There third release is L.A. Live, a show recorded at the Forum in Los Angeles on July 13th 1975 from their acclaimed Tour of The America’s, they played the old County Stadium on June 8th 1975 of that year. It’s pretty noteworthy in that it was the first Stones tour for Ron Wood who replaced guitarist Mick Taylor who left on his own accord; it also featured keyboardist Billy Preston. The Stones at the time of this tour had no album to support, this was between their It’s Only Rock and Roll and the yet to be released Back and Blue albums. As great as Taylor’s stint as a Stone was, Wood matches up much better with guitarist Keith Richards. They formed a guitar duo that was heavily blues based and switched off between rhythm and lead guitar in a flash. They created the sound that kept the Stones musically relevant from the 80’s to today. Standouts include “If You Can’t Rock Me,” “Fingerprint File,” “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” the very bluesy “You Gotta
Move” and the Stones backing up Billy Preston on his, at the time single, “Outta Space.” Counting Crows latest release is Underwater Sunshine (Collective) and it’s an album full of… you got it, covers. Of their twelve official album releases, only half are of new material. With two hits compilations and four live efforts, it almost seems like the band is shying away from their own stuff. This shocks me as lead vocalist Adam Duritz is one heck of a writer. The Crows though take a pretty unique approach to their craft by encouraging their fans to trade bootleg live and studio recordings. That being said it’s not so much of a surprise that they take an unconventional approach to their official releases. You got to give them credit though; at least they did a covers album of songs that have moved them emotionally and not by popularity. A lot of stuff here are by bands that I never heard of before like the albums opener “Untitled (Love Song)” by The Romany Rye. In the liner notes Duritz simply says when hearing it ‘I wanna spend five minutes doing this myself.’ So at least they have an honest approach to, what some might consider just another album that keeps them in the public’s eye until they record an album of original material. Standouts include “Return Of The Grievous Angel,” “Coming Around,” “You Ain’t Going Nowhere” and “Mercy.”

Habitat now accepting applications
by Tonia Krahenbuhl Business Management Program LaQuanda Butler, a community engagement specialist with the Milwaukee Chapter of Habitat for Humanity (MHFH), gave a great presentation on the program’s application process at MATC’s Cooley auditorium on February 15. MHFH is now accepting applications. MHFH is a non-profit housing ministry working in partnership with both families and individuals to build simple, decent and affordable housing for qualified applicants. While the program has already helped more than 500 families move into either new or renovated homes, an additional 100 new homes will be built in the Milwaukee area in the next three years. The program is currently focused in the Park West/ Aman and Washington park neighborhoods, but it will likely provide homes in other areas in the future. MHFH provides a great opportunity to own an affordable home, as well as to give back to your community. MHFH does not use your credit score and strives to serve those who would not qualify for a mortgage through a traditional lending institution.
The program sells the home at no profit, serves as the mortgage holder, and provides a zerointerest mortgage to families who meet certain qualifications. Mortgage payments are $475600 per month, which includes the portion required for property insurance and real estate taxes. The principal portion of each payment is recycled back into the program to build homes for other low-income families. MHFH also provides other programs aimed at helping homeowners, as well as providing people with a great opportunity to give back to their community in a positive way that brings needed value to Milwaukee neighborhoods in different parts of the city. MHFH is currently accepting applications. Contact the Family Services Department to attend a program orientation. The program entails what is called “Sweat Equity,” which is a partnership model that enables families admitted to the Habitat homeownership program to complete the necessary requirements, during which they participate in the actual construction of their homes and the homes of their neighbors. Qualifications for the Homeownership Program:

Stormers’ baseball squeak out a victory
by Mike Mixdorf Oak Creek Editor and Eric Sprecher Times Staff Reporter
Playing host to the Waubonsee Chiefs, the Stormers split a doubleheader against them on Thursday, April 12. Game one of the doubleheader
# 1 2 3 4 6 7 8 9 10 13 14 15 16 17 19 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 31 32 33 34 35
got off to an exciting start as Waubonsee’s shortstop Harry Vickers hit a lead off home run. The Stormers responded in the bottom of the first when shortstop Brandon Helt hit a RBI single, tying the game at 1-1. After the first inning, the game turned into a pitchers duel, going scoreless and sending the game
into extra innings–then the wheels came off for the Stormers. Lead by designated hitter Scott Allegretti’s 2 RBI single, Waubonsee scored 4 runs in the eighth inning. The Stormers were unable to answer in game one, ending in a 5-1 loss. Game two was a more offensive affair. The Chiefs began game two with a hot start similar to game
one with first baseman Jake Jouris knocking in two runs off a single in the top of the first inning. The Stormers fought back and scored six runs in the third inning, lead by designated hitter Josh Sommer, who hit a base clearing 3 RBI triple. The Chiefs would fight back in the fourth, scoring 3 runs, but in
the end it wasn’t enough. The game ended early due to the lack of light with the Stormers squeaking out a 7-6 victory. As of Monday, April 16, the Stormers season record is 1416. The Stormers have 16 games remaining, half of them being home games. Postseason action begins May 5.
