THE DIRTY ISSUE VOLUME 6, ISSUE 1, TABLE OF CONTENTS
FROM THE EDITOR
Life as a college student is dirty. We don’t wash our dishes as much as we should, we live on a budget and spend our days on a campus with 40,000 other people. We live in the moment, because it’s our last four years before we enter the real world. Inside investigated the germs lurking around our campus, from dorm ﬂoors to restaurants to tailgates. We looked into IU’s past to see if students today are dirtier than our parents. And we found the truth on the infamous IU porno shot here in 2002. These stories, good and bad, are part of life at IU. So enjoy The Dirty Issue — and hold on to that Lysol.

Confessions of a compulsive cleaner Freshman Caitlyn Burke cleans something in her room in Eigenmann Residence Center every day. No wonder she calls herself the maid of her ﬂoor. BY CHRISSY ASHACK PHOTO BY THOMAS MILLER
The room is split into two sides, each incredibly clean. Computers lie in the middle of the desks, and there isn’t a piece of paper out of place. Two containers of Lysol sit atop the closet, with a travel-size bottle sitting on the desk. Beds are made, and perfume bottles are lined up just so. This is how Indianapolis native and nursing major Caitlyn Burke likes her room. Clean. How would you describe a compulsive cleaner? Well, I’m a germaphobe. I Lysol everything. I don’t like germs. When did you start becoming a compulsive cleaner? I’ve always been a germaphobe and have always had to have things a certain way. I guess I have always kind of been like this. 4 INSIDE MAGAZINE the dirty issue
How often do you clean your room? Whenever I see dust. Whenever a bug lands on something, I have to Lysol it. I have to clean it. I usually clean every Sunday. I clean my mirrors, pictures, everything that’s touchable. The microwave, fridge, door knobs, light switches. The top of my desk gets dusty a lot, so I have to clean that. How do you deal with sharing a dorm bathroom? At ﬁrst, I was legit really mad. I wanted to have my own apartment, I wanted to have my own house. I wear my shoes and don’t touch the walls. I try to keep it normal so people don’t think I’m weird. I know all the girls on the ﬂoor, so that makes it better. How do you deal with having a roommate? I was actually supposed to have a single,
but because there are so many freshmen I have to share. But her side of the room is always clean, too, so it worked out really well. I love my roommate. What about parties? I actually left a party last night because it was so gross. Sweaty people were touching me. The bathroom door didn’t lock. I had to leave. Are you only compulsive when it comes to your room, or is it toward everything? My food can’t touch. My closet is in order. I have my tank tops, T-shirts, long sleeve shirts, then jackets. Do you think you got the compulsive gene from your parents? My mom is also kind of like that. She cleans everything. I deﬁnitely think I got it from her.
Neat freak or OCD? Retired IU professor Richard McFall worked with behavioral disorders for 40 years. He says that one of the most common things with OCD is cleanliness, but there are some blurred lines between having OCD and being overly careful. One example is while not many people like using public restrooms, people with OCD can get so uncomfortable using them, they have panic attacks. But don’t be too quick to label or judge. “One of the things I have found,” McFall says, “is these individuals are normal in every other respect. These patients aren’t somebody you would look at and say they are a nut case.”

LET’S DISSECT THE TYPICAL COLLEGE PARTY. Its basic ingredients include friends, music, and, let’s face it, alcohol. It’s where students can shed the stresses of the week and make memories — while ingesting a host of germs and bacteria. It’s enough to reduce any germaphobe to a trembling pile of nerves. But you don’t have to stay in every night playing Scrabble. With a few truths and tricks to help navigate the treacherous world of collegiate debauchery, you’ll ﬁnd yourself on the path to a healthier semester.
BEER PONG — THE DIRTY TRUTH If you think a quick dip in a cup of water is enough to disinfect a ping pong ball, think again. There’s the usual suspects like the common cold, ﬂu, and strep. Dr. Diana Ebling, IU Health Center Medical Director, said it’s also possible to contract a parasitic infection from accidentally ingesting soil, not to mention any other fungi and bacteria that lurk on the ﬂoor. Her solution? Play water pong. That way, you’re not imbibing beer contaminated by massive hairballs, gobs of dirt, and stray food particles.
SWAPPING SPIT Weekend nights are ﬁlled with swapping saliva with friends and strangers alike. From random make out sessions and swigs from bottles to shots and hits from bongs, germs spread faster than a Facebook petition. So think twice before putting your mouth on something dozens already have to avoid being exposed to the common cold, ﬂu, mono, oral herpes, and meningitis.
FRATERNITY SOLUTIONS On a typical weekend night, some 400 people make their way through a fraternity house on the North Jordan extension. All those bodies mean two things: guaranteed ﬁst-pumping and a whole lot of germs. After his bout with mono last spring, Sam*, the fraternity’s former risk-manager, made some changes to the way things were done. Responsible for the health and safety of his brothers and visitors to the house, he instituted these precautions to avoid spreading germs at parties: • Don’t reuse cups from party to party. • Throw away any drink left unattended for more than a few minutes. • Pour drinks to-order. This means fewer used cups left out where anyone could mistake them for clean ones. • Make someone responsible for keeping surface areas clear of debris and spilled drinks. (Clorox wipes come in handy.) • Don’t serve drinks from punch bowls or pitchers.

Bloomington pests (a ﬁeld guide) BY HANNAH WALTZ AND MYRYDD WELLS
uring your time at IU, you’re bound to encounter a lot of pesky situations. But lurking in your dorm rooms, greek houses, and off-campus apartments live actual pests that threaten to send you running and screaming — as well as potentially destroying your home and giving you diseases. Inside understands your pain, and to help you cope with these unwanted intruders, we present our ﬁeld guide for identifying, understanding, and ultimately vanquishing these creatures.
INSECTS Bedbugs (Cimex lectularius) Why They’re Freaky Bedbugs are parasitic bloodsuckers whose mission is not unlike the mosquito’s: drink enough mammalian blood to satiate their diets. Their bites are disease-free but leave behind red, itchy welts caused by the saliva they inject into their victims as they feast. Where You’ll Find Them Bedbugs hide out in dark cracks and crevices, which is why they tend to frequent bed headboards. If you suspect an attack, check for small, rust-colored spots on your bed sheets. What You Can Do Wash your bed sheets in hot water with detergent. And if paranoia is getting the best of you, coat your bed legs with petroleum jelly at night to create a barrier between your skin and the bug. 8 INSIDE MAGAZINE the dirty issue
Cicadas (Tibicen linnei) Why They’re Freaky The bug itself is completely harmless to humans…unless you hold one up to your ear. Cicadas’ sounds resonate at a volume that could cause permanent hearing loss. Where You’ll Find Them For the majority of their lives, cicadas live in the nymph stage underground where they burrow and mature. Fully grown, cicadas tend to hang out in trees and bushes. What You Can Do Other than its perpetual singing, the cicada is not much of a nuisance. If one does ﬂy in through your window, refrain from smashing it. Use the cup-and-paper routine: trap it beneath a cup, slip a paper underneath, and then release it back into the wild. SEE TIP JAR, PAGE 22
TRUE STORY Recent graduates Isaac Wilson and John Paunicka were in Collins three years ago when they saw a bat in the basement. Using a hamper, they were quickly able to catch it. Naming it “The Fonz,” the boys took the bat to a girls’ ﬂoor to show off their captured creature. “The general consensus was ‘That’s really cool’ and ‘Don’t they spread rabies or something?’” Wilson said in an email interview. Per their RA’s advice, they released the bat into the Collins courtyard. For more true stories, visit idsnews.com/ inside.

Inside gets the behind-the-scenes dirt from a Bloomington restaurant health inspector
BY CAITLIN PETERKIN
The Indiana Food Code is his bible. He keeps a stack of alcohol swabs in his messenger bag. He washes his hands upwards of 30 times a day. For anyone else, these habits might seem a little strange. But for Indiana University’s Environmental Health and Safety Specialist Graham McKeen, these quirks just come with the job. McKeen is one of two specialists responsible for conducting regular inspections at food events and facilities, addressing public and environmental health issues, and planning for public health emergencies. He works with groups on campus like Residential Programs and Services, IU Athletics, and the greek system. “It’s definitely an entertaining job,” he says. “You can plan all you
want, but something comes up. Like a sewage bust here, bedbugs there. Every day is different.” McKeen has established a stronger presence among the local food protection industry over the last six years. McKeen and his partner performed 426 inspections in 2010, compared to the 46 total performed in 2004. A typical inspection begins with McKeen washing his hands – the first time of about six over the course of examining an establishment. Then, he walks throughout the venue, making notes in a mahogany leatherbound notepad. “I like to think I have eyes in the back of my head,” he explains. “We check the place everywhere, from top to bottom.”

BETWEEN THE SHEETS IU’S HIDDEN PORNOGRAPHIC PAST
BY STEPHANIE KUZY DYM ILLUSTRATION BY WI LL ROYAL
There’s a moment buried in IU’s history. It’s a moment the University probably wants to forget.
moment when a porn company used a Big Ten university to turn a quick profit. A moment that lives on video for two and a half hours. A moment the residents currently living on the third floor of Wissler Hall in Teter Quadrangle might want to know about, especially if they live across from a bulletin board. It’s a moment that started on Oct. 3, 2002, and continued into the weekend. The weekend known as “Campus Invasion No. 32.” That weekend included porn stars, students, and one major university investigation. In August 2002, the Princeton Review named Indiana University the nation’s No. 1 party school. Two months later, adult film star Calli Cox and her three female and two male colleagues from a Californiabased adult film company, Shane Enterprises, told the Indiana Daily Student they visited campus to “party with students from the No. 1 party school.” The adult film stars drank with, gave oral sex to, and even filmed XXX-rated scenes with IU students in areas on and off campus. More than 100 students appeared in the film, but only 20 to 30 signed waivers allowing the Shane Enterprises’ film crew to use the right to their likeness for the final film. The University launched their investigation. The IDS ran front page stories on the incident, confirming the porn stars had made their way to the student radio station, then known as WIUS, Teter, and various residences across town. The crew filmed parties across campus, including one scene at The Roach Motel house on Indiana Avenue. One off-campus party featured a pain

contest involving spanking with a Sigma Chi paddle. It wasn’t the first campus the porn stars invaded. The previous year, Arizona State University made headlines when their executive vice president of student government was filmed in a shower scene at his fraternity with Calli Cox. That video was “Campus Invasion No. 29.” In the end, the third floor of Teter Wissler and the student radio station were the settings of major scenes in the final film. A national talk show host accused the University of trying to hide the incident. And an adult film company ran with all the publicity the local newspapers could contain. Dirty doesn’t even begin to cover the situation. *** The taping began at the student radio station. WIUS host Neal Taflinger knew what he was getting into when he signed the waiver. All he did was hold a mic and conduct an interview with Calli Cox and her colleague, Belladonna. Calli Cox contacted Taflinger before the crew’s visit to Bloomington. Taflinger cleared Shane Enterprises’ visit to the WIUS studios with the student radio board and decided not to air the show live so he could control the content. He ended up with more than 30 minutes on tape of talking, laughing, gurgling, slurping, and other various noises. “A porn production company doesn’t call you to do a casual, low-key interview one-on-one about how they got into the industry,” Taflinger said in a recent interview. “I did my best to get what I needed from the situation — as in good answers to real questions.” “Man, this is degenerating very fast,” Taflinger said in the film, less than 10 seconds into the scene filmed
at WIUS. “I wanted to ask you guys, how exactly did you guys get involved …” There was a pause. Belladonna lifted up her shirt, pulled down her bra and grabbed her breast, and started shaking it in Taflinger’s face. “…with adult film,” Taflinger concluded. Taflinger asked Calli Cox what the film involved. Calli Cox’s response was interaction. The two female porn stars sat on Taflinger’s lap with their shirts raised, their breasts exposed. “Lock up your children,” Taflinger said in the final version of “Campus Invasion No. 32.” “We’ve got porn stars in the studio.” But soon, Calli Cox and Belladonna seemed to get bored with the college student who was more focused on his work. They moved onto oral sex with another porn star in their film crew. “They tried to sprawl out into various parts of the WIUS mansion and I put a stop to that,” Taflinger said. “I wasn’t going to play host to a formal scene shoot for them. At that point, it was kind of, ‘Thanks for coming in guys, but you need to go.’” *** The filming continued at Teter Quad. After the crew picked up a student near the wooden bridges by Ballantine Hall, the student, a resident of Teter Wissler, led the film crew back to his dorm. The next thing the other students knew, there were porn stars on their floor. “I definitely think we’re going to do some damage at this school,” a female porn star said. “They’re going to be walking around for decades talking about how porn stars did bad, bad things in their rooms.” The Teter resident received oral sex from the female porn star. On the floor were two brown bags and two cups of dipping sauce.
Then-freshman Adam Brown told the IDS he didn’t know the porn crew. All he knew was they had followed one of the other students on his floor back to the Central neighborhood after class. “College is crazy,” Brown said. Daylight streamed in through the blinds of another Teter Wissler room. There were desktop computers. A drab-looking carpet. A bean bag. Two bunkbeds that were positioned into an L-shape. A wooden-armed, blue-cushioned chair that had a slight rock. “So, here we are in somebody’s dorm,” Mr. Marcus, one of the male porn stars, said as he received oral sex from Calli Cox. The sex between Calli Cox, a former eighth grade English teacher, and her colleagues couldn’t be contained within the dorm room’s cinderblock walls. It spilled into the hallway and the bathroom. A Shane Enterprises member in a bear suit, known as Drunky the Bear, appeared. Students looked on. Then-freshman Danny Gothelf told the IDS the situation was awkward. “Being the age that we are, we’re not going to go up to our head RA and say ‘Hey, there are porn stars in our bathroom’,” Gothelf said. The resident assistant wasn’t on the floor at the time, but Cedric Harris, Teter’s residence manager, learned of the crew’s filming. On Oct. 3, Harris filed a report. Twenty days later, the University opened their investigation after they said they read an original story published in the Oct. 22, 2002, edition of the IDS. In the next two months, the response to Shane Enterprises from then-IU spokesperson Jane Jankowski and the rest of the university administration became clear: don’t come back. The University had IU’s Advanced Research and Technology Institute send a letter prohibiting the adult film
company from future visits. “If Shane had properly sought permission for this video in advance pursuant to University policy, rest assured that permission would not have been granted,” the letter said, as published in the IDS. “This letter shall serve as formal notice prohibiting any future trespass of University property by any person on your organization’s behalf.” During that time, the University began investigating what would happen to the students involved in the residence hall, WIUS, and the various residences

According to the IU Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct, the University is allowed to discipline a student for “lewd, indecent or obscene conduction, or actions that endanger the university community or the academic process.” The University could also discipline students for off-campus misconduct if they deemed the activity “to undermine integrity of the educational process.” The University sent a letter to the California-based adult film company to demand that IU’s logo or symbols not be referenced in any connection with the film.

f music has sex, drugs, and rock and roll, politics has sex, money, and votes. To understand the dirtiness of politics, just look at the variety of scandals throughout history: public land buyouts in the Gilded Age, Watergate, Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford and his mysterious Argentinian romance, and even Weinergate. While sex scandals might dominate political coverage in the media, political science professor Marjorie Hershey says the prevalence of scandals in politics is often blown out of proportion. If anything, history has tamed the political arena through experience. “In the Gilded Age, there was a lot less in the way of regulation,” Hershey says. “The expansion of regulation has just made it The Verdict: Then more difficult for people to Sexy political scandals get away with the kinds of may be fun to read things they could pull off a about, but messing with hundred years ago.” livelihoods like they But you can’t regulate did in the Gilded Age? sex and romance — espeThat’s truly evil. cially when sex scandals take so many unprecedented forms. Still, Hershey insists the media is mostly to blame for creating the illusion that politicians are any more scandalous than before. “I think we have to be cautious about seeing Anthony Weiner and saying that ‘politicians are such and such,’” she says, referring to the assumption that all politicians are prone to sex scandals. The bigger issue, according to Hershey, is that the public is more interested in reading stories about sex and corruption than anything else a politician does. “The guys who go around exposing themselves in public are a pretty small proportion,” Hershey says. “Why should anyone care about them? You can ﬁnd that on any big street corner.”

hey came with chains and padlocks. Hundreds of students marching from Dunn Meadow to Bryan Hall. After the May 4, 1970, shooting at Kent State, students in Bloomington were looking for a reaction from the IU administration. They bound themselves to the doors of Bryan Hall. And they waited. This anti-war protest was one of many on the IU campus in the 1960s and ’70s. In 1969, students rallied against a 68 per-
Yet Carter says she wouldn’t be quick to dismiss the sexuality of previous generations’ ballroom dances. Partner dancing is restrained and sometimes restraint can be sexy, she says. That’s not saying all ballroom dances are restrained. “The bachata? Yeah, deﬁnitely not subtle,” says Becca Mandell of the IU Ballroom Dance Club. “It’s basically face-to-face grinding.” Grinding, the social dance of the moment, provides a slight dilemma for dancers like Carter. “On one hand, a free pelvis on a mobile spine is a very expressive move. As a dancer, I value my freedom. On the other, it can deﬁnitely be done for the wrong reasons.” Grinding only becomes dirty, she explains, when it is the sole dance move in someone’s repertoire and performed without the consent of both partners. “Secrets and shame are dirty,” she says. “Oppressing others and yourself is dirty. Dancing with free expression is not.”
cent tuition increase. The protest led to the Ballantine lock-in, where a group of students pressured IU administrators by locking them in a room. In October, nearly 3,500 students carried candles from Dunn Meadow to Showalter Fountain in protest of the Vietnam War. At a May 13, 1970, protest, more than 100 students blocked traffic on Indiana Avenue. But when then-Monroe County
Sheriff Clifford Thrasher walked through the crowd, the students began to back up. “We’ll take the fucking streets later,” one student, Greg Hess, said as they left. Thrasher searched for the perpetrator who dared to utter the vulgar word. Hess was arrested and charged a $25 ﬁne. His case, overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, reminds us of a time when students stood for a cause and recognized the place for protest on campus.

op music has come a long way since Elvis Presley gyrated his hips in front of a shocked nation watching television in the 1950s. Or has it? Nowadays, it seems people don’t even think twice when they hear Enrique Iglesias sing “Tonight (I’m F**kin’ You)” or when they see ﬁreworks explode out of Katy Perry’s bra in music videos. But music professor Glenn Gass, who teaches courses on the history of rock ‘n’ roll, says popular music has always lent itself to sexual themes. “Birds do it, bees do it,” Gass says. “There were songs back in the 1920s that were cleverly guarded, risque, sexual innuendos. And that’s probably been going on since pub songs back in the 16th century. I think that sex and romance have always been the recurring themes of popular music.” Songs such as “My Man Rocks Me (With One Steady Roll),” for instance, popularized by blues singer Trixie Smith in 1922, even paved the way for coining the very name of one of the most sexually obsessed genres of music in history.
“A lot of songs use the term ‘rock me and roll me,’ and that term was a metaphor for sex,” Gass says. It wasn’t until the 1950s, when DJ Alan Freed renamed rhythm and blues music “rock and roll,” that it took on a slightly less sexual meaning. And from that point on, Gass says the popular music of each successive decade succeeded in outdoing itself in terms of shocking lyrics. “Each generation goes a little bit further,” he says. “The (Rolling) Stones went further than the The Beatles, and glam rock went further than Verdict: that, and heavy metal went further, and Then punk rock went further.

Regardless of the steady increase in explicit sexual references throughout the decades, Gass is quick to remind that the blues musician Muddy Waters sang “I Just Want to Make Love to You” back in the 1950’s, well before the Rolling Stones covered the same song on their debut album in 1964.

or thousands of years and for millions of people, language has been the crux around which cultures deﬁne themselves. So if we’re dirtier than our predecessors, the language we use in everyday life must be ﬁlthy by comparison. “If language is getting dirtier, then there must be a dirtier phenomenon to which it’s attached,” says Michael Adams, an associate professor in the English department who studies English words, particularly slang. “So if our language is dirtier, then we’re dirtier as a culture.” One clue to our supposed dirtiness then is the progression of profanity out of the depths of vulgarity and into the realm of prestige. Take, for example, the F-word. At one point it was an unspeakable taboo. But eventually the F-bomb moved into the realm of vulgarity — a word reserved for the crude

Kelvin Sampson’s dirty recruiting
Tom Crean’s dirty record
From being named coach of the year to having the media predict the end of his Division I coaching career, Sampson experienced a fall from grace — with IU basketball not far behind. By placing impermissible

BEER. A SHOE. HEARTBREAK. THE THINGS YOU LEAVE BEHIND. BY BIZ CARSON PHOTO BY RYAN DORGAN
nder the early morning glow of the stadium lights, the only ghostly reminders of the game the night before were the abandoned pom-poms, halfeaten hot dogs, and leftover boxes of popcorn. Pulling on two pairs of gloves, I climbed the stairs into Section 2 and started methodically cleaning each row. Peanut shells clung to my gloves as I pushed them into piles. I picked two pieces of chewed blue gum off stadium seats. I opened drink lids and poured the soft drinks from yesterday’s game down the steps before tossing them into the
trash bag. What I thought was a Coke turned out to be a dip cup, so the spit and chew joined the stream of soda on the stairs. This was my fourth time picking up the stadium and tailgating ﬁelds. My honorary band fraternity, Kappa Kappa Psi, traditionally cleans up following the ﬁrst football game of the season. Like all of the groups that volunteer, we’re paid a small sum for our service. In my experiences cleaning the stadium and tailgating ﬁeld, I’ve picked up what Hoosier fans leave behind. Boxers hanging from trees. Used condoms left on the ground. Baby diapers left next to an abandoned cooler. That Sunday was no different.
The day before, thousands of students, parents, and alumni had pulled into the tailgating ﬁelds, unloaded their coolers, and lit their grills. Bodies grinded to music, clothes came off. Alcohol coated throats and clouded minds. The next morning, the humanity and insanity was gone. The only cars left in the ﬁeld slowly got towed. The trash awaited us. The tailgating ﬁelds after an IU home game looked like a bomb went off in a liquor store. Crushed Solo cups, empty alcohol containers, and beer cases lay abandoned. Standing in one place, I picked up ﬁve handles of vodka.
ONLINE ONLY Look at the trash yourself. Watch a time-lapse video of the trash accumulating at the tailgating ﬁelds and a behindthe-scenes look at Biz in action cleaning it up. Another step, and I reached two more. As the volunteers walked through the tailgating ﬁeld, we slowly ﬁlled the trash bags with humanity’s leftovers. Broken sunglasses. Pizza boxes. Hot dogs and hamburgers. I combed through the ﬁelds, SEE TRASH, PAGE 21
TRASH FROM PAGE 20 looking for clues about the student species. As the trash continued to grow, so did the stories we dreamed up of how it got there. Someone found an empty sodium chloride syringe with no needle. We began a guessing game on why someone would have a syringe on them in the tailgating ﬁelds. Were they diabetic? Allergic to something? And then we realized it was for Jell-O shots. I circled a tree and found a lone men’s leather ﬂip ﬂop propped up against the back. Did the owner walk away with one bare foot? Under a pile of beer cases and Solo cups, I unearthed a small women’s white top, covered in pizza and mud stains. It was so tiny it looked like it could ﬁt a child. How did it end up in a pile of trash? What did she wear instead? The sight of something dark brown intertwined in the green blades of grass stopped my guessing game. As I picked up the many dark brown clumps, strands of hair stuck to my gloves. Somebody had walked away from the tailgate bald. Two hours later, the stadium rows and tailgating ﬁelds were clean. My left glove was ripped open in the back, the khaki color now stained brown with some yellow mustard highlights from an abandoned cook-out.
I placed my last trash bag in the overﬂowing pile at one of the dumpsters. Another volunteer had found a handwritten note in a pile of trash and decided to keep it until the end, so I joined the group that had gathered around to listen to what was being read from a damp piece of paper. It was a post-break-up note, an exgirlfriend’s parting words. The blue ink covering the front and back was still legible with only a corner ripped. The girl said she wanted her ex to be happy. She had always loved him, more than he loved her, she believed. Hearing the note being read out loud felt like high school all over again. I’d scribbled love notes and break-up notes and the “Do you like me? Check yes or no” notes. She put her heart onto that wet piece of notebook paper, whoever she was. It ended up in a pile of trash among the alcohol bottles and crushed Solo cups. But she wasn’t the only one to lose a part of herself at the tailgate. Whether it was a dirty shirt, an empty syringe, or a head full of hair, everyone’s stories ended up sealed in those black bags that overﬂowed from the dumpsters. They waited to be carted out of Bloomington and to their ﬁnal resting place in a landﬁll somewhere in southern Indiana. And I went home to wash the mud, the stench of alcohol, and the heartbreak off of me.
KITCHEN FROM PAGE 9 McKeen inspects local establishments based on risk. Low-risk establishments like The Copper Cup are only inspected once a year, because they serve prepackaged food. High-risk venues like The Tudor Room, are inspected about twice per year because they have onsite preparation, warming and cooling, and raw products. Some locations are
inspected more frequently. McKeen says, “It’s really up to the discretion of the inspector and how they interpret the Food Code.” McKeen has the Food Code, also known as Title 410 IAC 7-24, memorized. It outlines proper techniques of food storage and preparation, equipment usage, water, plumbing and waste, and poisonous and toxic materials. McKeen views it as his duty to uphold the Food Code to the best of his
ability. He is a strong advocate of food education as well as safety. “We take an educational training approach,” he says. “There’s a difference between a safety inspector and educator, and we try to be a bit of both. We have the ability to protect people from losing their job, losing a business, losing their reputation, and sometimes, even death. “We are here to help and protect.”

6. If you use sponges, do you wash, sanitize, and change them frequently? 7. Do you leave food out of the fridge for more than 4 hours?
8. Is your sink free of dirty dishes and food debris? 9. Do you sanitize your sink frequently and between tasks, such as: thawing, dish washing, and hand washing? 10. Do you store your chemicals and medicines away from food, clean dishes, and utensils? 11. Do you check for and discard any canned foods that have dented, rusty, or swollen seals?

FASHION FROM PAGE 19 “It would have been scandalous to wear shorts on campus. The only thing worse would be wearing jeans,” says Klinger, who studied home economics at IU from 1955 to 1958. Her party outfit of choice? A strapless pink dress with a full skirt that hung past the knees. And boys wore dinner jackets and ties. “Every boy owned a white dinner jacket. They wore them to parties and would eventually wear them to their wedding.” Fast forward to 2011. Over the course of a lifetime, today’s college students have experienced—and been exposed to— nearly everything. Crop tops display toned tummies, leggings cling to thighs and shorts barely cover the butt.

HIDDEN FROM PAGE 13 about the value of an IU degree. “IU has 38,000 students and with that, it has 38,000 different value systems,” McKaig said. “It is hard to categorize 38,000 students based on the actions of just a few.” *** IU’s former spokesperson Jane Jankowski called it an “unfortunate situation.” In early November, Jankowski watched “Campus Invasion No. 32” to check for the appearance of IU logos and campus signs in the ﬁlm. In early December 2002, the University handed the investigation to the IU Police Department. Anticipation was also growing for the release of the ﬁlm, which was to come out on Dec. 17. A local adult ﬁlm store already had a waiting list. By Dec. 9, the University
Deborah Christiansen, an IU clothing and textile professor, attributes the drastic shift in fashion to social change — in this case, the sexual revolution of the 1960s. Without the change in society, she says, people wouldn’t have even thought to wear what they do now. “Look at Amelia Bloomer. She showed her ankle and people were shocked. Now who cares about an ankle?” It takes time, but eventually, people become used to seeing something (ankles, bra straps, butt cheeks) and no one gives it a second thought. “Fashion is about extremes. And honestly, the only extreme we can reach now is no clothes at all,” Christiansen says. “We’ve done everything else besides nudity.” A pause, then, “Well, maybe men in skirts. We haven’t done that in awhile.” socially lax society compared to society of earlier times,” Adams says. “I don’t think there’s any doubt that we allow people to do things, and we allow an awareness of what they do more than we used to. And so there’s probably dirty language that follows that permissiveness and that awareness.”
was looking at charging two students for their involvement with the ﬁlm. The students’ names were never released but it was alleged that one opened the door to Teter for the ﬁlm crew and the other participated in sexual acts in a public area. Three days later, Shane Enterprises made the front page of the IDS again. The company wanted to give a scholarship to an IU student who enjoyed porn. The money would come from the proceeds of “Campus Invasion No. 32.” The company was still working out the details at the time. “It just makes sense to do this because we market toward the college crowd,” Cox said. The ﬁrst scholarship recipient was never reported. *** It hit the shelves on Dec. 17, 2002. “Campus Invasion No. 32” was released for $49.99
TIP JAR FROM PAGE 8 Sprickets (Rhaphidophoridae) Why They’re Freaky These insects are natural hybrids gone wild. Appearing as the bastard child of a spider and a cricket, these freaks have the large hind legs and antennae of crickets, and the hunching bodies and multiple legs of spiders. Where You’ll Find Them Sprickets are often basement and bathroom nuisances in student houses because they prefer dark, damp environments. What You Can Do Keep the entrances from the outdoors sealed. If you’re already experiencing infestation, purchase sticky boards to hold the pests captive.

After one month, one of Bloomington’s adult stores had sold more than 200 copies. Richard Roeper critiqued the ﬁlm. Bill O’Reilly’s “O’Reilly Factor” called the administration “out of touch” for not investigating the incident sooner. *** Nine years later, IU students still talk about an urban legend that porn stars did “bad, bad things” in dorm rooms. Cedric Harris, the former Teter Residential Manager, is now the Associate Director for Residential Operations. Although it’s been nearly a decade since the incident, Harris remarked that it was something he wished students would just forget. Then he walked away to talk with his boss. “My boss said to say ‘No comment’,” Harris said to an interview request about that 2002 weekend. “What was
What You Can Do Secure your trash. Sometimes loud noises and ﬂashing lights can scare away raccoons, but if you ﬁnd one in your house, call Bloomington Animal Care and Control. Because raccoons carry rabies, Laurie Ringquist, director of Animal Care and Control, says that students should not try to handle them without protective gear.
Bats (Chiroptera) Why They’re Freaky Bats are traditionally associated with horror ﬁlms, Halloween, and vampires, making them creepy to most people. While bats do not attack humans, large amounts of bat droppings within homes allow fungal spores to form, which may lead to histoplasmosis, a lung disease that can cause ﬂu-like symptoms. They can also give you rabies. Gross.
probably safer to let the professionals handle the situation.
Mice (Mus musculus) Why They’re Freaky Knowing there’s a speedy little critter living in your house and eating your food is bad enough, but mice are also super animals that can climb, swim, and jump. Mice can also spread diseases, and ﬁnding little black pieces of mouse excrement in your cabinets is never fun. Where You’ll Find Them Aside from humans, mice are the most common animals to live in cities. It only takes a quarterinch hole for a mouse to enter a house, and once they’re in, they can hide just about anywhere — especially in places where they can ﬁnd food.
What You Can Do If you ﬁnd a bat in your house or apartment, call Bloomington Animal Care and Control. While it is possible to catch a bat, it is
What You Can Do If you think you have a mouse, keep your food in containers that cannot be chewed through and don’t leave anything sitting out in the open. Traditional mousetraps are effective and are available at several stores, including Walmart and Lowe’s. Other traps, such as ones that keep the mouse alive for later release, are available; poisons, however, are not recommended due to their hazards to people.
written about it was written at that time.” Former IU spokesperson Jane Jankowski is now Governor Mitch Daniels’ press secretary. Former dean of students Dick McKaig has since retired from his position. McKaig said he thinks Shane Enterprises chose to ﬁlm at IU for the publicity of a No. 1 party school. “That’s what everybody presumed was the case, that they were simply in the business of making money, and Indiana University, because of that ranking, had a certain visibility that they were able to capitalize on,” McKaig said. “I didn’t know of any other connection that would have drawn them to Bloomington.” Calli Cox, also known as Kristy Jo Connelly off-camera, appeared in her last adult

Former reporters said that it was rumored one student withdrew from school, and the other student left for a career in the pornography industry. The dorm rooms on the third ﬂoor of Teter Wissler are still in use. Today, this moment still won’t hide. It’s still whispered about on campus. A moment that Shane Enterprises proﬁted from for months. A moment that can be found at Plan 9 Film Emporium to rent for only $3. A moment that might push the residents currently living in one of the 35 rooms on the third ﬂoor of Teter Wissler into buying a black light.
Where You’ll Find Them Bats have been found in several of the trees around campus. They’ll go anywhere they can roost, including your porch.
