Violin virtuoso Classical musician Itzhak Perlman plays IU Auditorium BY BRANDON COOK | email@example.com
raised as a superstar, a champion of classical music, a beloved humanist, conductor, performer and artist, Itzhak Perlman holds an unprecedented musical influence. At 8 p.m. Thursday at the IU Auditorium, a packed audience welcomed him as the reigning virtuoso of the violin. Like the great classical musicians of the nineteenth century, Franz Liszt and Niccolo Paganini, Perlman commands a celebrity rarely enjoyed by performers in the world of classical music. Even those who don’t know Perlman’s art know his reputation. State Rep. Jim Lucas, R-69th District, came to the show after hearing of Perlman’s
talent. “We came just to hear the world’s best violinist play,” he said. Perlman was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1945. At the age of three, after being denied entrance to the prestigious Ron Shulamit music conservatory for being too small to hold a violin, Perlman taught himself the instrument. He gave his first concert at the age of ten, shortly before moving to the United States to study at the Juilliard School. In 1958 Perlman performed the third movement from Felix Mendelssohn’s Concerto in E minor live on the Ed Sullivan show. He was thirteen
years old. “It sounded like a talented 13-yearold with a lot of promise,” Perlman said in a Huffington Post article. “But it did not sound like a finished product.” Despite his early appearances on national television and his unique talent, he denied being a child prodigy. “A child prodigy is somebody who can step up to the stage of Carnegie Hall and play with an orchestra one of the standard violin concerts with aplomb,” he said. “I couldn’t do that.” Ironically, Perlman’s most famous collaborations have not been for the SEE PERLMAN, PAGE 6

Deceptively deep puddles on sidewalks and a roaring Jordan River might not be the only side effects of the overnight rains. Assistant Vice President for Facility Operations Hank Hewetson said several buildings have experienced technical problems. These include the Psychology Building, the School of Optometry, Simon Hall, Sycamore Hall, Swain Hall, the Radio-TV Building, the Health Center, the Indiana Memorial Union, the Mellencamp building, Myers Hall and Teter and Forest Quadrangles. Hewetson said Duke Energy started seeing these buildings going offline as of 12:57 p.m. They lost one of their three circuits, and that circuit is still being serviced. He said his men tapped into the backup circuit available on campus, and this has likely provided energy to the buildings that lost power. “We’ve got people scrambling,” Hewetson said.

He said the weather could be to blame for the outages and technological troubles. “We feed our campus from two different directions,” he said. Power troubles are most prevalent south of the psychology building, he said. Currently, there is no definite number of buildings without power, though Hewetson said Simon Hall is still not responsive on Duke Energy’s system. “We think everything is back up,” he said. “More than one circuit feeds to campus.” The company is currently working to fix the problem as quickly and efficiently as possible, Hewetson said. “When these things happen, we have a lot going on,” he said.

A 19-year-old woman reported to police that she was sexually assaulted by multiple men who were using drugs on Bloomington’s south side. Bloomington police identified three suspects, all of whom denied the allegations, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Joe Crider said. The victim said she had been staying at an apartment on Bloomington’s south side for several days, during which there was drug use in the apartment. BPD Lt. Steve Kellams said it was a methamphetamine-related incident. Police found the apartment and spoke with the tenant, a 32-year-old man, as well as two other men, ages 24 and 27. The tenant gave the police permission to search the apartment but they found no apparent evidence, Crider said. The police obtained a search warrant Monday and collected evidence from the apartment consistent with bodily fluid stains. The victim said she was sexually assaulted on March 27. Police have forwarded evidence collected from the scene, DNA samples from the suspects and forensic evidence from the victim to the Indiana State Police lab for examination. The investigation is ongoing.
“He literally came in the first day that he was here and started in the gym, came back to the gym that night and has never stopped. It’s amazing how that works.” Vonleh said he began to think of leaving school toward the end of the 201314 season. Vonleh, the seven-time Big Ten Freshman of the Week, said buzz from the media and people around him made him consider the possibility of turning professional after just one season.
It started with a bang. IU sophomore Xinya Cheng was driving north on Woodlawn Avenue in her white Mini Cooper, boyfriend Jincheng Liu in the passenger seat. He was visiting her on his spring break from the University of Delaware. Donn Hall was pulling up to the stop sign at the intersection of Woodlawn Avenue and Cottage Grove Avenue in his blue 2012 Camaro. It was finally clean, he said, because of all the rain. Hall began to drive away from the stop sign, and Cheng slammed into the front left tire of his car, in a burst of smoke. The bang echoed for blocks. Liu got out of the passenger side of the car and began yelling at Hall. “He didn’t stop,” Liu said. IU junior Vincent Rowold was walking to class with his friend and IU junior Eli Staton when the two heard the crash and turned. As they watched, the Mini Cooper began to roll backward. With Cheng still in the car, the car began to roll south on Woodlawn. She had forgotten to put the car in park. However, rather than applying the brakes, she jumped out of the moving car, and the passenger-less car began to pick up speed. Rowold ran across the street as the car veered west onto a lawn. The car’s back tires went over a stone wall,

Vonleh declares for NBA BY ALDEN WOODS firstname.lastname@example.org @acw9293
Noah Vonleh showed his youth at a press conference on Thursday that was organized to announce his intent to enter the 2014 NBA Draft. His professional career was about to begin, and he arrived in sweatpants. Vonleh, who will turn 19 years old in August, sat alongside IU Coach Tom Crean and announced he will forgo his final three years of eligibility and pursue a career in the NBA. “I just want to thank God for having me here today to announce that I’ll be taking my talents to the NBA,” Vonleh said. “I want to thank the whole Indiana staff ... for all helping me get to where I’m at.” The Haverhill, Mass., native was named the 2014 Big Ten Freshman of the
Year and third team All-Big Ten after averaging 11.3 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. In his lone season in Bloomington, he led the conference in rebounding and double-doubles. Vonleh said while the decision was a difficult one, the opportunity to follow a lifelong dream proved too alluring. “It was a pretty difficult decision, but as a little kid, I always had a dream of playing in the NBA,” he said. “So I said, ‘Why not go for it?’ I went home, I talked to my mom ... I just stuck with my heart and went with it.” Crean praised his star freshman’s work ethic and preparation. “We’ve put our time into helping him become better, but he has worked as hard or harder than anybody who’s worked with him,” Crean said. “He has got an uncommon work ethic for his age.

BFC discusses lack of IU faculty governance BY ANNA HYZY email@example.com @annakhyzy
The Bloomington Faculty Council is seeking ways to increase faculty voice in University procedures and decisions. In a meeting Thursday to present the goals of the slate that will run in upcoming BFC elections, faculty discussed the lack of faculty governance at IU and how they might go about becoming more involved. “I find it a rather frustrating service that I do
because the faculty no longer believes in the BFC, and the BFC no longer believes in itself,” Karma Lochrie, professor in the Department of English, said. She is the arts and humanities representative of the council. She said she was excited to see the new slate and that she hopes she can be a part of something bigger through the BFC. Lochrie pointed out that while the BFC has been very active in the past, it has been far too long since it has been active.
Sara Friedman, associate professor of anthropology, said in addition to a more active BFC, there must also be improved communication between BFC and other governing bodies across campus and within the different schools. Council members said they agreed. “We in the BFC are kind of stranded in the BFC,” Lochrie said. Members at the meeting also expressed a concern that administrators are not involving faculty in decisions, but are only coming to
“I find myself really anxious now that it’s not clear to me how we’re going to service this new demand to be a full-service undergraduate institution and an R1,” she said. Friedman said IU has a very top-down president, which makes faculty involvement difficult. Michael Martin, professor in the Department of Communication and Culture pointed out that the cross-school nature of the Media School would have given the BFC jurisdiction, no involvement from the
them after the fact. “I’d love to not comply, but I don’t know how, given the fact that they’ve intentionally taken that away from us,” Friedman said of administrative demands. Purnima Bose, associate professor of English, said the bureaucratic demands administrators put on faculty conflict with the research mission of IU. IU is a Research I university, a classification based on giving high priority to research, commitment to graduate and doctoral programs and other criteria.
BFC occurred. “It just seems to me that these are legitimate points of intervention that the BFC should’ve been involved in,” he said. Ben Robinson, associate professor of Germanic studies, said the effort has to lie in building faith in the BFC and encouraging faculty to speak up. “I think we do need to insist on more authority as is granted by the BFC constitution,” Robinson said. “It really has to be a cultural fight.”

Attorney Marion Werkheiser, who specializes in preserving and protecting the treasures of ancient cultures, gives a lecture on the topic of “The Fight Against Cultural Racketeering: Exposing the Global Black Market in Looted Art and Antiquities” at the Mathers Museum of World Cultures on Thursday.
Alumna talks on black market deals BY STEVEN JOHNSON email@example.com @stetyjohn
A museum gallery in Mallawi, Egypt, is strewn with ancient sarcophagi and broken pottery. Display cases lie in shattered heaps. “This is what cultural racketeering looks like,” Marion Werkheiser said at her talk at the Mathers Museum of World Cultures last night. In the chaos of the 2011 Egyptian uprising, Werkheiser said, men with machine guns broke into the Mallawi museum and looted more than 1,000 artifacts. They burned mummies and broke sculptures too heavy to carry, while archaeologists braved sniper fire from surrounding rooftops to recover valuable objects from the museum
before they could stolen or destroyed. Werkheiser, an IU alumna and former Wells Scholar, is an attorney who works to prevent these heritage sites from becoming warzones. After an active international law career in Washington, D.C., she co-founded Cultural Heritage Partners, an organization that advocates for protection of historical sites worldwide. Cultural racketeering, Werkheiser said, is the systematic theft of art and antiquities by organized crime syndicates across the globe. “A necessary factor for this is political unrest,” she said, which was why Egypt was the focus of much of the discussion. “The Egyptian Minister of Antiquities himself has been fired and hired about six times in the past few months.”
Like most other markets in the world economy, illicit trade in art and antiquities has boomed with the tide of globalization. Its total worth is now estimated at $6 billion per year, although Werkheiser suggested the number is probably higher. Since January 2011, Egypt has lost $2.5 billion in looted antiquities. In that year, the Egyptian government registered 100 times more illegal digs than the previous year. The black market trade is driven by several factors, Werkheiser said. Most often, and most intuitively, money is the motivator, but in places like Egypt or Bahrain, museums and monuments are often destroyed as political statements. Werkheiser discussed the fact that trade in illegal art and artifacts is caught up in larger criminal plots
around the world — both Sept. 11 collaborators and methamphetamine rings in the American southwest have been found with stolen artifacts that help fund their endeavors. But many factors in the United States specifically hamper prevention of the illegal artifact trade, Werkheiser said. The U.S. and Switzerland, both home to many dealers who don’t want to see their pieces return to their countries of origin, have enacted laws making it much harder for source countries to claim ownership of the stolen material. “We create a lot of hoops,” Werkheiser said. By the time an artifact has reached a reputable dealer, it could have been through SEE BLACK MARKET, PAGE 3
INPIRG is trying to reduce textbook fees. The student-directed advocacy nonprofit organization is waging a campaign for open-access textbooks, books that are published with an opencopyright license and distributed to the public at no cost. On Tuesday it asked the Bloomington Faculty Council to think about publishing more textbooks under an open-copyright license to lower textbook costs for students. “The fact that, as a University, we should at least be open to the idea of open-access textbooks is certainly a good one,” Cassidy Sugimoto, co-chair of the educational policies committee, said. An open copyright license means licensees are unlimited and a licenser can grant extra permissions to licensees. Textbook costs are

equivalent to 26 percent of tuition at a 4-year public college and 72 percent of tuition at community colleges. Senior Riley Hall, a member of INPIRG, presented their case to the meeting. “These books are created by faculty, colleges or publishers and contain comparable material to any other kind of traditional text,” Hall said. They cost about 80 percent less than traditional textbooks on average, he said. “Basically, you can put your information in as a professor, and add things to make it specific to your lesson,” freshman Eleanor Spolyar said during the presentation. These books are still peer reviewed by experts in the subject matter, and can still be printed and sold in University bookstores for a small printing fee, Hall said. “I’ve had a professor SEE INPIRG, PAGE 3

multiple levels of middlemen and launderers, obscuring its source. Werkheiser finished with talk of solutions. Initiatives around the world use creative methods to combat the loss of cultural artifacts, including crowd sourced reporting, social media, and entrepreneurship efforts focused on tourism, she said. “Building economies around these sites increases incentive to care for them,” Werkheiser said. “Antiquities have been viewed as a sort of cash crop. We’re trying to redirect that so they can make money while keeping the artifacts in the ground — to feed their families through tourism.” Werkheiser brought the issue home when she mentioned a Rush County, Ind., collector whose home was seized in an FBI art crime team raid Wednesday. “I can’t wait to hear more about it,” she said.

IU faculty member wins academic award BY ALEXIS DAILY email@example.com
After eight years of advising at IU, a faculty member has been honored for her commitment to her students. Rachel Tolen recently won the 2014 Terri National Outstanding Academic Advisor Award. “I feel the most satisfaction when students tell me of the success they’ve achieved,” Tolen said. “Students have to work so unbelievably hard to be admitted to medical school, so when a student writes to me to tell me he or she was admitted and says that my advice was helpful, it really makes my day.” Tolen works in the Health Professions and Prelaw Center, a program of the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education. She provides advising and other services for students who want to pursue careers in law, medicine and other health professions. Currently, she’s busy helping students prepare to apply to medical school this summer. Tolen said she develops an individualized strategy to help each student apply to medical school. She recently recorded podcast episodes to coach students through different phases of writing essays for their applications. “I wanted to create those so students would be able to access them from wherever they are at whatever time, to help them get through some of the more difficult steps in applying,” Tolen said. Tolen said her favorite part of advising is helping students write their personal statements or prepare for their interviews at medical schools. “I enjoy being involved in helping students define their future career goals in medicine because, by doing

so, I can help influence the kind of physicians they will be,” she said. “We are all patients, so helping students who will develop into better, more caring physicians one day is a way of helping patients and everyone in our society in the end.” Many IU faculty members within the Provost’s Office said they are proud of Tolen and her achievements. “We are delighted that Rachel’s exceptional work with students has been recognized with this award,” said Elizabeth Guertin, assistant vice provost for undergraduate education and executive director of advising. “Rachel’s commitment to learning about each individual student’s interests and strengths and helping the student to tailor their education to provide them with the best preparation to achieve their future professional goals exemplifies the best in advising. For so many students, Rachel’s advice and recommendations have contributed to an extraordinary educational experience at IU-Bloomington.” When students apply for medical school, they must reflect on their personal goals and what they want to achieve through medicine,
Tolen said. “It’s truly a privilege to be able to support someone at such an important time in their life,” Tolen said. Tolen said the times she finds most difficult to be an advisor is when she can’t change something for a student, but wishes she could. “A student might get a low score on the MCAT, for instance,” she said. “I can advise the student on how to prepare, but I can’t change the score.” Still, Tolen said she tries to help the student overcome whatever obstacle is in his or her way. “It makes me want to work harder when I know that doing so might make a difference for a student who will become a caring physician one day,” she said. After winning the award, Tolen said she felt honored, but her colleagues deserve equal recognition. She said it was important to thank her fellow advisors at the Health Professions and Prelaw Center and the advising community on campus for what they have taught her. “None of us could do our jobs in isolation, and ultimately having a supportive community of advisors on our campus helps enhance the success of students,” Tolen said.
The polls closed at 10 p.m. Wednesday, and PLUS for IUSA will be the administration for next year after running unopposed for the entire election. IU sophomore Andy Braden, a senior staff member for the current IU administration, will be next year’s student body president. Braden said one of his main goals for next year is increasing student engagement in IUSA decisions. “Face-to-face exposure to students is really key,” Braden said. “If you can have a conversation with someone and say this is what IUSA is, if they can be engaged, I think it resonates a lot more than fliers and things.” Braden said IUSA executives will continue to have office hours for students in the student tower. Additionally, Braden said, every other weekend IUSA representatives will be going directly to students. He said they plan to spend time in key locations such as food courts and the Wells Library to give students
an opportunity to meet them face-to-face and give suggestions on how the campus can be improved. “I want it to be clear to students that we are your student government,” Braden said. “If you have an idea you can come talk to us, and we can help enact that.” Current Chief of Staff Dia Sharma, who will also serve as Chief of Staff next year, said IUSA will also develop a think tank for students to come to them with ideas and be provided with IUSA feedback. She said IUSA could help the students gain administration contacts or, potentially, financial resources for their projects. “Give us your idea and we will help you do it,” Sharma said. The current administration only has four more weeks in office, and Sharma said most of its goals have been accomplished. “We’ve learned a lot this year,” Sharma said. “You need to be continually working to be better. There are so many problems at the University, and we need (to) actively seek solutions.”
IUSA has recently received the Readership Program data, which VP of Administration Chris Kauffman said would be assessed before the end of their administration so IUSA members can decide how to continue. The $100,000 Readership Program, which is an IUSA initiative aimed to provide daily copies of the New York Times and USA Today to students, had a $30,000 surplus this year, as stated in a Dec. 1, 2013, IDS article. The surplus amount was budgeted by the University to be used specifically by IUSA. Sharma said IUSA also hopes to improve their social media presence in the next four weeks and create a more direct line to students before their administration ends. IUSA executives are also going to Washington, D.C., this weekend for Big Ten on the Hill, a conference for Big Ten student governments to share ideas and solutions. “We’re going to continue working,” Sharma said. “We’re not just going to stop because we have four weeks left. We’re focusing on finishing strong.”

remain within reach for families of modest means, and affordable over the long term for the borrowers and parents in repayment,” the INPIRG website states. “In response, USPIRG works to increase student grant aid, make debt levels more manageable, and protect students as consumers from practices that contribute to educational debt.” More than 3,000 professors across the United States are using open-access textbooks, according to the INPIRG fact sheet.
This includes the University of Maryland and University of Illinois, Spolyar said. IUSA and the Association of Big Ten students have passed resolutions in support of open-access textbooks, according to a INPIRG press release Wednesday. “The truth is that openaccess is coming, and it ain’t slow,” Sugimoto said. “And it’ll be coming for journal publications, but also for textbooks, too.”

A sign that Potbelly Sandwich Shop is closed because of power outage is posted in front of the door on Thursday afternoon. Many buildings on the north side of Kirkwood Avenue were temporarily closed due to a power outage.
Power outage affects restaurants, businesses FROM IDS REPORTS
A transformer burst into flames Thursday causing power outages across Bloomington. There were numerous electrical explosions in the transformer located by Clemens Mobile Storage on South Rogers Street. It set fire to the transformer and telephone pole. “Duke Energy worked tirelessly to restore power,” Bloomington Fire Department Sgt. Brandon Hudson said. Several locations experienced power outages as a result including Potbelly Sandwich Shop and Woodburn Hall.
The Bloomington Police Department arrived at the scene blocking traffic at the Clemens Mobile Storage south entrance, as well as the fire department blocking the north entrance, while Duke Energy employees worked to cut power off to the transformer and electrical lines, Hudson said. Once the power was shut off, Duke Energy employees were lifted in a bucket truck to extinguish the fire with a dry chemical agent. All units were cleared from the scene by 2 p.m. Thursday.

The structure of the building that housed Muddy Fork Bakery, which was destroyed in a fire three weeks ago, remains. The owners, Katie Zukof and Eric Shedler, say they have been overwhelmed with the positive response and support they have received from the Bloomington community and hope to be back in full business by July.
Bakery recovers after ﬁre BY LYNDSAY JONES firstname.lastname@example.org
Katie Zukof was awake with her baby at about 3 a.m. two weeks ago when she found the bakery she and her husband owned and operated completely engulfed in flames. “We had smoke detectors in the bakery, and they were going off, but we were at the house so we couldn’t hear them,” Zukof said. The couple lives in a house less than a half mile from the bakery. The fire completely destroyed the building. For four years, Muddy Fork bakery had been Eric Schedler and Katie’s livelihood. In one night, it was gone. Zukof said they used a wood-burning oven they heated in 12-hour shifts every day. By Thursday of every week, she said, it was at its hottest temperature. “The oven is more than 1,000 degrees while being fired,” Zukof said. “It’s almost definite that the oven caused the fire.” Zukof and her husband have been running the bakery almost single-handedly for years. On Fridays, they have two employees to help them bake bread, and on Saturdays two other workers help bake granola. Zukof said the bakery grew out of her husband’s hobby of bread-making. “We knew we wanted a family business,” Zukof said. “I do feel like it was sort of random. It was an experiment that surprised us with the demand.” Laura Wanner works on Saturdays as a granola baker.
“I started last year in January, and it’s been growing every since,” Wanner said. “Granola, strange as it is, is booming.” Wanner said when she began working, Katie and Eric were still living in the bakery. “Literally, they built the place as a boot-straps operation,” she said. Wanner said after the couple finished building their house, they moved most of their belongings there but left many personal items in the loft. When the fire burned the bakery, it took away some of their history — as well as their livelihood. “Her wedding dress was up there, and all of the clothes her daughter had outgrown — a ton of important history stuff,” Wanner said. Katie and Eric moved to Bloomington in 2006 so Eric could pursue a master’s degree in math at IU. Zukof said Eric planned to teach at a community college, but when the hearthbaked bread Eric sold at the January 2010 Farmer’s Market did well, they reconsidered. The bakery, which is the subject of a gofundme.com fundraising page, has gathered such a following that Zukof said they would have been lost without the community support they are receiving. Zucof’s cousin started the fundraising page online and donations came from people who said they had never been to Bloomington. Additionally, Zukof said loyal customers were sending cards as well as money. “We feel very lucky to

live in Bloomington,” Zukof said. “We were in tears last week. People are unbelievably generous. We aren’t going to have to dip into our personal savings for this. This has made us sure we want to make this our livelihood.” To prevent future accidents, Zukof said they were going to redesign the bakery when they rebuild it. Originally, there was a wood loft, which the stove pipe of the oven passed through. It was not confirmed as the cause of the fire, but Zukof said she thinks it was. Monroe County Building Commissioner Jim Gerstbauer said that accidents can happen even if a building has been inspected prior to operating. “If they had followed the manufacturer’s instructions
for their equipment, there’s no guarantee that it would have been safe, only that it met the minimum safety standards,” Gerstbauer said. Because Muddy Fork is committed to sustainability, the wood-burning oven will continue to be used. “There’s not a place that has an oven like ours,” Zucov said. “It’s incredibly efficient.” Zukof said she and her husband use scrap wood to fuel the oven. It’s what makes their bread special, she said, and is part of the reason for their customer’s loyalty. She said they hope to be at full production by July. “You’d think they’d want to relax, but they’re so antsy to get back to work,” Wanner said. “They definitely put a lot of heart into that.”

Excitement about the new bus transfer station diminished when Bloomington Transit proposed a number of route changes that would reduce bus service on Kirkwood Avenue, pushing the city to create a new route proposal. The new transit center will be located at Third and Walnut streets, about two blocks southwest of the current center on Fourth and Washington streets. Routes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 were adjusted because of the location shift. The original proposal would have halted bus travel on Kirkwood for Route 1 South Walnut, Route 3 College Mall and Route 4 High Street. “When we learned that the bus company was proposing to make some route changes, we heard back from several customers and several members of our staff that those changes would negatively impact them,”
said Sara Laughlin, Monroe County Public Library director. Laughlin said Mary Frasier, child’s services reference librarian, feared that a number of children would stop coming to the library as a result. Parents might stop allowing their children to ride the bus if it didn’t stop directly on Kirkwood, she said. Laughlin said she was also concerned about the effect the route change would have on students, parents and commuters. “We actually see people almost every day getting off the bus with toddlers and strollers and bags of books, so being three or four blocks away would make that journey much more problematic,” Laughlin said. “It’d be OK on a day when it’s 70 and the sun is shining, but if it’s snowing or raining, it’d be much more challenging.” Laughlin and a few other concerned travelers wrote letters to Bloomington Transit, asking the staff to
reconsider their original proposal. After a public meeting, Bloomington Transit looked at alternatives and made the necessary adjustments. “We came up with three changes to return the routes to Kirkwood, and — the routes 3 and 4 South — we proposed to operate them inbound on Kirkwood and then outbound on Third Street,” said Lew May, general manager of Bloomington Transit. May said he believes the changes were a good solution that will help customers who need to get to Kirkwood and will allow the buses to make better connections downtown. “Not a perfect solution, but a reasonable compromise that I think will help both the customers as well as the timeliness of our service,” May said. Laughlin and the rest of the library staff agreed and were happy with the outcome.
“We were very pleased that they had re-added a stop on Kirkwood,” Laughlin said. “And I think it’s not just a library, but I think all the businesses on Kirkwood will be very pleased, too. We think of this as the main street in downtown Bloomington.” May said there has been another proposed change to Route 3 Highland Village, which would no longer travel both ways on Park Square Drive and Gifford Road, but Bloomington Transit plans to postpone a decision until more data is collected. The new transit center is still scheduled to open toward the end of June. “It’s going to be a tremendous improvement in terms of passenger comfort, passenger amenities, more room for future growth and will provide us with a good home in the downtown Bloomington area for the next 30 to 40 years, so we’re excited about that,” May said.

Violinist Itzhak Perlman performs Thursday at the IU Auditorium. Perlman has received many awards and recognitions for his musicianship. His awards include the Kennedy Center Honor award and a 2008 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 concert hall, but rather for the movie theater. The film score for Steven Spielberg’s epic historical drama “Schindler’s List,” one of the most recognized film scores to date, was composed by John Williams and featured Perlman on the violin. It won an Academy Award, a BAFTA and a Grammy, as well as a nomination for a Golden Globe, which Williams and Perlman won in 2005 with “Memoirs of a Geisha.” Perlman’s performance Thursday night did not feature these works. Instead, it featured three sonatas by the nineteenth and twentieth century composers Ludwig van Beethoven,
César Franck, and Claude Debussy. These were performed with the pianist Rohan de Silva, winner of the prestigious Best Accompanist award for the 1990 Tchaikovsky Competition and a frequent collaborator with Perlman. Ranging between blissful harmonies and tempestuous drama, the program featured a wide range of influences. Concertgoer Madeleine Steup said she was amazed. Beethoven’s Sonata No. 8 in G Major, Op. 30 was composed between 1801 and 1802, the same years that he composed his second symphony. The period was a traumatic time in the life of the composer. Beethoven had recently discovered his
hearing loss and was contemplating suicide, a secret he disclosed in his famous Heiligenstadt letter, which he wrote just months after the sonata. Franck’s Sonata for Violin and Piano in A major was the second piece performed by Perlman. It was written in four movements and composed as a wedding present for the famed Belgian violinist Eugene Ysaye. “It’s very tempestuous,” IU sophomore Steup, a former violinist, said. “It has lots of different characters and it’s very balanced.” Hailed as the father of musical Impressionism and the creator of a new, enriched tonality, Debussy moved away from this label as he began distancing himself from his pictorial,
sensual music in favor of a more abstract sound. His dozens of albums feature music from every major Classical epoch, as well as Jewish folk music, film scores, Spanish dances and jazz. “He’s the best in the world,” said Lucas. After the intermission, audiences returned for Perlman’s powerful finale, Debussy’s Sonata in G Minor for Violin and Piano. The last work completed by the composer before his death at 55, the sonata showcases a new development in Debussy’s musical tendencies. “It’s really incredible,” said Steup. “It’s mercurial, very romantic, very French.”
and for a moment the Mini Cooper stopped, shuddering. Then it began to do a 180-degree turn, back toward Woodlawn Avenue. As the car began rolling toward the street again, now facing south, Rowold ripped open the passenger door of the moving car. He said he was going to try to dive inside to stop the car but, before he could, the car had moved past him, brushing a telephone pole that caused the door he’d opened to slam shut. Staton ran to the intersection of 10th Street and Woodlawn Avenue, yelling at students to get out of the way, while the car continued to roll down Woodlawn Avenue. Students screamed and dashed out of the way. Cars in the way of the Mini Cooper began to reverse as much as they could. Still gathering speed, the car crossed 10th Street,
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “I really started to realize it toward the end of the season,” he said. “A lot of people were like, ‘Oh, he could possibly leave after this year,’ but I tried not to pay too much attention to that. When the season was over, I talked to a few people and saw where they could see me going, and I thought
through traffic, and careened over the curb on the southwest corner of the intersection of 10th and Woodlawn Avenue. Leaving tire tracks in the mud and flowerbeds behind it, the car crashed into a tree outside of Collins, causing all of the air bags to deploy. No one reported serious injuries by press time, although the drivers of both vehicles did report soreness and some seatbelt lacerations from the initial crash. Within an hour, the scene was cleaned up. Emergency vehicles had towed away the Mini Cooper, and ambulances and firemen had dispersed. However, bricks still lay scattered where the car had hit the wall, and scrapes line the telephone pole and tree where the car made contact. IUPD could not be reached for comment.

Morgan McKinney, 18, cleans her saddle as she prepares Brady, her 19-year old horse, to compete in the pole bending event at the Illinois Tri-State Rodeo. Morgan finished the season first place in pole bending for the state of Indiana last year.
Boots, buckles & broncs High school cowgirls, cowboys compete for rodeo gold BY CHARLES SCUDDER firstname.lastname@example.org @cscudder
DU QUOIN, Ill. — Before every run, Morgan McKinney stares into the distance. She pulls up on the reins, knowing Brady, her 19-yearold bay horse, will follow her gaze to the far side of the rodeo arena. She picked a spot on the far side of the arena and visualized a clean run. Then, Morgan, a senior at New Palestine High School, dropped her hands. Brady knew what to do next. He galloped forward, past the six poles lined up in the middle of the arena. Then Morgan turned the horse, weaving him down through the poles, then weaving back up, before turning and sprinting toward the gate again. On a riser overlooking the arena, Morgan’s mom, Julie, followed Brady and Morgan with her iPad. The announcer read Morgan’s time: 22.883 seconds. “I guess for the first run of the year, not bad, but not what we were wanting,” Julie said, punching her daughter’s time to the iPad. “She’s not going to be happy.” This is what high school rodeo looks like east of the Mississippi. It’s teams travelling around the Midwest to compete. It’s warming up the horses early because the temperature is too cold. It’s cowgirls giggling over which Instagram caption to use — #RodeoLyfe? #RodeoSwag? It’s birthday cake in the stables between events. It’s showing off championship saddles and belt buckles. Most of all, it’s a lot of waiting. Waiting for your event, waiting for your turn in the draw, waiting, waiting, waiting. Morgan, 18, competes in pole bending and barrel racing with the Indiana High School Rodeo Association. She has been only competing in high school rodeo for three years, but has been to nationals every year so far. All her best friends rodeo with her, she said. While her classmates were putting on ballgowns for prom last year, she was in Du Quoin, Ill., strapping a saddle on Brady. She’s a senior now and will attend Purdue University next year to become a veterinarian. “I couldn’t see myself not being with animals just because they consume my life now,” she said. She watched the first run of the day on her mom’s iPad while waiting in her parent’s camper. Brady gave up early. He lifted his head up at the second pole, he was gasping for air by the time they finished. Morgan’s time will be averaged with her time for the next day, which
means both she and Brady would have to do better to keep ahead in the state rankings. “What’s your goals this year?” Julie asked Morgan. “They’re to make nationals in both events and win,” Morgan said. “On the right track so far. Just my barrels to work on.” “Wish I was on the right track,” Michael Shreeve, one of Morgan’s friends in rodeo, said. Michael, 17, rides bulls and competes in team roping, but he’s been a bull rider since he was 7. He’s been state champion in the event for three years and has already been offered a scholarship to ride bulls at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin. “I’d rather get on 20 bulls than rope 20 steers,” he said. “I know people who make a living off it, but you gotta have a backup plan. That’s why I’m going to college.” He showed off his gear behind the chutes, where cowboys congregate and get ready for their eightsecond ride. He pulls out of a gear bag his $500 helmet (“That’s the most important thing”) his $250 bull rope (“This sure can get expensive”) and his $55 blue jeans (“Your mother will get pretty mad if you wear a new pair of jeans to ride”). As the rodeo began, Michael took off his black cowboy hat and knelt to the ground, putting a hand in the dirt. He asked God not for the best run of the night, but to keep him safe. He knows accidents happen all the time in roughstock events like bull and bronco riding. Just a few minutes later, the first bareback rider of the night was bucked to the ground, dragged across the arena and slammed into the metal fence. The next morning, western swing echoed around the arena as judges prepared for the day’s competition. In the stables, Morgan was getting Brady for their second pole bending run. It was warmer than the day before, hopefully Brady wouldn’t be as stiff. Morgan put some rubbing alcohol and IcyHot near his flank to help with muscle spasms before riding him around the rodeo grounds. Before the run, she handed her hat and jacket to Michael and strapped on a helmet. The announcer called her name. Her mom was standing by with the iPad. She led Brady to the gate and pulled on the reins. She stared to the far side of the arena for a moment, then dropped her hands. Brady knew what to do next.
Michael Shreeve, a high school bull rider, says a prayer before the rodeo starts. He doesn't pray for the best run of the night, but just asks God to keep him and the other riders safe.
What is rodeo? Rodeo events can be hard to understand for the average green horn. Here’s a guide to events in the Indiana High School Rodeo Association Breakaway roping A calf is released from the chute and a cowboy takes off after on horseback, and is timed until a lasso is thrown around the calf’s head.

MARISSA EXPLAINS IT ALL
Iggy’s ﬁrst date right on Target Rapper Iggy Azalea has recently been romantically linked to LA Lakers basketball player Nick Young, according to TMZ. Azalea opened up about the relationship during an interview in NYC, revealing that
the couple’s first date was at Target. Azalea was reportedly won over when Young bought her a pair of socks and a ring pop.

Beware of megamovies

If you’re an avid Harry Potter fan like me, you’re probably already aware that J.K. Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” a textbook mentioned in the series, will be brought to the silver screen sometime in the next several years. And, like me, you’ll at first be excited, because you still can’t believe the series is over. However, in an interview with Warner Brother’s CEO in the March 29 edition of The New York Times, Kevin Tsujihara announced the adaptation will span not one, but three megamovies aimed at capturing the life and escapades of one magizoologist Newt Scamander in the American Roaring Twenties. And that makes me incredibly nervous. It’s not the idea that we should be concerned with — fans have always itched for Rowling to explore the fictional universe in which magicdoers and Hogwarts inconspicuously reside. In fact, Potterheads have been fixated on the idea of the possible role of magic in other communities outside of the United Kingdom ever since “The Goblet of Fire” was released, which hinted at the presence of wizarding academies in the United States. It is the very concept of three megamovies that is sinister. And we are right to be nervous after Peter Jackson’s monstrous injustice to “The Hobbit,” which was based on a similar premise. Jackson promoted the decision to split the mere 300page novel into three separate films as a desire to tell the “untold stories” of Sauron’s rise to power from other Middle Earth texts. But it was clearly a thinly veiled plot to milk as much cash as possible out of the book after the tumultuous success of his previous Tolkien adaptation, “The Lord of the Rings,” which is an actual trilogy. This is further evidenced by the first two Hobbit films’ desperately meandering plots, the addition of backstories and love trysts that were never conceived by Tolkien. Direct changes to the source material allowed for flashy, “cinematic” CGI moments to occur — goose chase in Smaug’s lair, anyone? — serving little other purpose than to crush the original prose in dead weight. Naturally, one has to wonder if the upcoming “Fantastic Beasts” megamovies will be handled in such a sloppy, ham-fisted manner. The only source material we have is Rowlings’ pseudotextbook as authored by Scamander, replete with Harry and Ron’s doodles, which makes it rife for adaptation. No gosh-darned previouslyestablished plots exist to hinder a particularly creative, or avaricious, imagination. With that being said, however, three aimless films filled only with ostentatious CGI opportunities, fumbling romantic subplots, unconvincing cameos and non-compelling action would be a serious disservice to the fan base. They would ultimately insinuate that we’re so starved for follow-ups, we’ll take any old bone thrown in our direction as long as it looks pretty, has magic and maybe has Dumbledore. As for now, the upcoming megamovies remain uncasted, undirected and unproduced, which leaves us with a giant question mark. Though Rowling’s personal involvement with the script provides a glimmer of hope and promise, we as fans should be wary of the severe downsides of the megamovie trilogy format. email@example.com
ILLUSTRATION BY GRIFFIN LEEDS
Florida Gun Show Special Guest: A Murderer WE SAY: Infamy should never be treated as celebrity You remember George Zimmerman, right? The man who shot and killed an unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin, a few years back? Excuse us, Martin was armed that night. With Skittles and iced tea. We digress. Anyway, Zimmerman recently thought it would be a good idea to agree to appear as a special guest at the New Orlando Gun Show in Florida. He signed a few autographs — between 20 and 200, depending on which news source you believe — shook a few hands and went about his day. Unfortunately, as benign as this gun show appearance might have been for Zimmerman, it carries more weight than most would like to acknowledge. Zimmerman, a man
who shot and killed an unarmed teenager and got away with it, was invited as a special guest to a gun show. It was offensive and distasteful on several levels, so it is difficult to choose where to start. It seems no one thought about how treating Zimmerman as a celebrity would affect Trayvon Martin’s family. It must be unimaginably hard for his parents, family and friends to see Zimmerman parading about in public, being treated as a celebrity after he murdered their son, their nephew, their best friend. It says something about our society that a known murderer has been elevated to a kind of warped “celebrity” status. Zimmerman’s fame comes from nothing but
his decision to shoot an unarmed black teenager and his luck in getting away with it. It’s hard to understand why any gun-rights activists are OK with making Zimmerman the poster child for the freedom to carry a weapon. He is not the most likable character, and he has not proven himself to be a responsible gun owner. If the message of the pro-gun rights community is to allow more people to own guns because they use them in self-defense and act responsibly and prudently, Zimmerman should be the last person they would turn to for support. However, since they insist on keeping him around, their message must be something less responsible and more reckless.
The only reasonable explanation for Zimmerman’s appearance at this gun show is he was offered compensation to do so. If that is the case, it makes sense that he willingly took the money to participate in this event, given the millions of dollars in legal fees he still owes. But even if Zimmerman is in debt, it does not excuse this behavior. There are other less offensive ways for him to make money to pay off his debts. Monetizing peoples’ racism and gun lust is no way to exist in the world, especially when doing so actively hurts those who know someone who was a victim of gun violence. firstname.lastname@example.org @ids_opinion
LIFE, POLITICS & COFFEE
An unappreciated art Here are two theoretical students competing for a Wells Scholarship. Assume that their grades are academically equivalent. One is John. In high school, he participated in an applied science competition dealing with climate change and, due to his innovative solution, he won first place. He was also captain of the tennis team, president of student government, created his own startup business selling an energy drink, and saved countless cats from countless trees. Then there’s Henry. He played in his school’s orchestra. By his senior year, he was concertmaster and made it to All-State Orchestra. On the side, he picked up several other instruments — saxophone, drums, guitar — and became proficient at each. He was also interested in poetry and often gave readings at a coffee shop in
his town. Who would you pick to win the scholarship? My guess, and I believe it is a fairly accurate one, is that you would pick John. And it is not bad that you picked him. He is an accomplished person who would take full advantage of the opportunities that the scholarship gives him. However, there is Henry who wasn’t picked, despite his involvement in the arts. I believe this is because his interests produce no tangible results, nothing that he could put on a resume or an application and say, “I succeeded in this very public way.” Yet he worked just as hard as John. Each of the poems he wrote took weeks to perfect, and he might have become a community staple at the coffee shop, often drawing crowds up to 50 people. There is no way to say that concisely on an applica-
tion, though. And, even if there was, it would come across as, “Hey, I write poems, which pales in comparison to John’s abundant accomplishments.” The issue here is that the humanities are not taken as seriously as science, politics or business. When one compares a portfolio of poems to an innovative solution for climate change, there is no reason to expect the poem to ever be picked because the poems seem simple and science seems far more difficult and relevant. This results from a misunderstanding on the difficulty of creating such works of art. I have definitely experienced this. Surrounded by science majors studying for a test in Ergonomics, I can feel them glare at me and then eventually tell me how lucky I am and how easy I have it as I work on my short story for creative

writing. Indeed, Ergonomics is hard, but do not belittle the work of those majoring in the humanities. I’m on my fifth draft of my short story, and I’ve been working on it for three months. It’s mentally exhausting. But nobody ever sees this side of humanities. They never see the emotional and spiritual work it takes to create something out of nothing. They just see a person sitting at a table who does not have to deal with chemistry while they have to cram four chapters in one night. Believe me. We work hard too. email@example.com

“Hello there, Mozilla Firefox user. Pardon this interruption of your OkCupid experience,” opens a memo posted by the online dating website. “Mozilla’s new CEO, Brendan Eich, is an opponent of equal rights for gay couples. We would therefore prefer that our users not use Mozilla software to access OkCupid.” Promoting itself as the “best free dating site on Earth,” OkCupid has chosen to raise awareness among users about the allegiances of Mozilla’s new CEO and provide them with different options when accessing the site, including Google Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer. The OkCupid memo cites Eich’s $1,000 contribution to support California’s Proposition 8 as the basis for their boycott, according to CNN. “Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame and frustration are our enemies, and we wish them nothing but failure,” it reads. Naturally, I couldn’t agree with OkCupid’s directors more. I, too, consider myself the enemy of anyone who seeks to deny love and enforce all those terrible things they mention. What complicates OkCupid’s rationale is that Eich is more on their side than they realize. Shortly after his promotion, Brendan Eich blogged an apology to all whom he may have “caused pain.” He promised to shape Mozilla as an inclusive, supportive environment. He also actively encourages public vigilance. “I don’t ask for trust free of context, or without a solid structure to support accountability,” he said. “I want to be held accountable for what I do as CEO. I fully expect you all to do so.” Contradictory though it may be, in this age of heated social activism, it is apparently possible for someone to support inclusivity and professional equality without affirming — for personal, religious or a myriad other reasons — the right of same-sex couples to legally marry. It’s a frustratingly popular double-standard — one I cannot wait to see laid to rest — but we have to work around it to enact lasting change. I’m thrilled that the professional community has gotten involved in this social debate so adamantly. The equality battles are being fought in shopping aisles and drive-thrus as well as courtrooms and picket lines. I take issue not with OkCupid’s initiative in posting the memo, and especially not with the content of the memo, but with the solution proposed. We don’t want Eich to resign — we need people like him. Based on the extensively regretful and cooperative nature of his blog post, his promotion and influence are actually a step forward, not backward. I’m willing to wager there are many CEOs who haven’t contributed financially to anti-marriage equality campaigns but harbor far more destructively discriminatory workplace policies. Rather than boycott Firefox, let’s ask that Eich revoke his support of Proposition 8 or make a donation to the Human Rights Campaign. Either of the above would be more productive ways to move the equality campaign forward than removing Eich from his position. Eventually, I’m convinced, love will win. firstname.lastname@example.org

Blueline to open gallery BY CHRISTIAN KEMP firstname.lastname@example.org
Two artists who focus on how struggle and hope are reflected in everyday nature will have their artwork featured on the walls of Blueline Gallery of Media Productions Friday night. Blueline Media Productions will present the works of Danielle Urschel and Alyssa Mahern as part of the Bloomington Gallery Walk. The opening reception is from 5 to 8 p.m. today. The exhibit will remain open until June 1. Urschel said her work is based on themes from everyday life. Both of her series use the seasons to represent her triumph over struggles. “I have a couple series,” she said. “One is kind of based on winter, and how desolate winter is, and it is called ‘Hope and Winter.’” Her other series featured a battle between birds and snakes. Urschel is also a member of the Bloomington Print Collective, a local non-profit print shop that provides services open to the public. Blueline owner Chelsea Sanders said while Urschel’s and Mahern’s artworks both depict nature, their styles differ in some ways. She said they make an excellent exhibition combined. “The way these two artists interact together is really captivating,” Sanders said. Mahern said her family’s support of the arts when she was a child influenced much of her work. When she taught public art to elementary students in Indianapolis, she enjoyed building kids’ confidence in

making art. Mahern’s motivation to start painting came in those seven years when she was teaching art to children, but through a gloomier channel. “I began painting after serving as a juror on a murder case,” Mahern said. “It was four days that really had an impact on me.” The trial, she said, gave her a desire to communicate in a different way in order to expand her platforms and depict the humanity of the world. “Even the murderer was very human,” she said. Mahern said she put a lot of time into two particular series she worked on, which are being exhibited at Blueline. One of these, “Looking for a Home,” is a series of five paintings made from photos. “Those moments would have just passed by if I

Comedy ‘Mad Gravity’ to premiere at BPP theater BY ANTHONY BRODERICK email@example.com
Bloomington Playwrights Project will premiere “Mad Gravity” tonight, a comedy that explores how an asteroid heading toward earth could unravel the fabric of society. Performances will take place at 7:30 p.m. April 4-5, 10-12 and 17-19 at the Bloomington Playwrights Project theater. Tickets are $20 for regular admission and $17 for students and seniors, and they can be purchased at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater Box Office or online at bctboxoffice. com. Although the show is already sold out for its opening weekend, tickets are available for the remaining dates. “Mad Gravity” was the winner of the Reva Shiner Comedy Award, selected by the BPP’s artistic director Chad Rabinovitz. “Every year, we have two opening calls and contests for play ideas to be submitted for us to adapt,” said Jessica Reed, managing director for BPP. “We had received over
1,000 submissions all over the world just full of comedy play scripts, and ‘Mad Gravity’ was picked as winner for the funniest playwright.” “Mad Gravity” is a situational comedy that centers on two couples’ reaction to an announcement that an asteroid might hit Earth. The audience is part of the show, as the actors in the play communicate with them without breaking the fourth wall, or the separation of reality and world in which the play is set. The production will star actors Mary Carol Reardon, Alan Craig, Jeff Stone, Darrell Ann Stone and Lauren Sagendorph. The show was directed by Dina Epshteyn, a play director from New York, who previously worked on the productions “Still the River Runs” in 2011 and “Three Views of the Same Object” in 2012 for the BPP. Since the play is new and has not yet been shown in Bloomington, Epshteyn said, she was constantly in contact with the writer of the play, William Missouri

She said it was beneficial for the production that they were able to bring Downs to the set and ask for his critique. “‘Mad Gravity’ is a really funny play but has deep and interesting things to say,” Epshteyn said. “It is not something you would normally see in films or plays these days, and I will just leave it at that.” This was a different kind of project for Epshteyn to take on, but she said she was very pleased with the final product. “The show was a challenge for sure, but very fun to direct,” Epshteyn said. “Audience members should be in a very open and flexible mindset when seeing it.”
The Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center will open its newest exhibit, “Save As: A Computer-Aided Exhibition,” today with a reception from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibit is opening as part of today’s Gallery Walk, which features new exhibits from about 10 different venues in downtown Bloomington. “Save As” focuses on work created using 3-D printing and computer design by IU faculty from various art and science departments on campus. Some pieces were made entirely with a 3-D printer while others include certain components of computeraided design. Using a 3-D printer can be a confusing process, exhibit curator Payson McNett said. The exhibit will feature a 3-D printer and laser cutter during today’s reception to show gallery viewers the process involved for many of the showcased works. The audience will be able to see how a 3-D printer works and how pieces in the exhibit were created by the advanced technology. One piece that was created entirely with computer processes in the exhibit is an 8-foot-long and 1-foottall skateboard by McNett. McNett said he was always interested in skateboarding and building
ramps and half pipes as a teenager, which served as the inspiration for this particular piece. McNett created a rendition of each part of the skateboard on a computer and then enlarged each piece so it would be to scale with the rest of the piece. With these pieces designed on the computer, McNett could print and cut them with a laser cutter and then assemble the skateboard. Another piece shown in the exhibit is titled MiRAE, which stands for Minimalist Robot for Affective Expression. The robot was created using a 3-D color printer and microcontrollers, which allows the robot facial-recognition capabilities. Gallery viewers will be able to interact with the robot as it reacts to them and recognizes them. The piece was a collaboration between Casey Bennett, Christopher Myles, Selma Sabanovic, Marlena Fraune and Katherine Shaw. Many pieces in the exhibit were created with aid from a 3-D printer, and every piece incorporated advanced manufacturing technology. “The exhibit is an opportunity to show the importance of these technologies in the future of the art world and the University,” McNett said. “These tools are not only part of the

art world, but it’s part of the greater world in general.” Nicole Jacquard, who runs the 3-D printers in the School of Fine Arts, compared the potential of 3-D printers to the same potential computers had when they came on the market in the 1970s. These printers and technology are becoming easier to use and are typically less expensive, Jacquard said. Jacquard said IU has not taken the lead on this up-and-coming technology because the majority of campuses with these machines have strong engineering programs. “It’s the next industrial revolution,” she said. “We really need to start investing in these at IU.” The “Save As” exhibit provides the art and sciences departments the opportunity to share this type of technology with a wider audience and show the versatility of the machines. “Very few people know what’s being done on campus with these machines,” Jacquard said. “To actually bring this out and have people realize that people are using it and using it in new ways is a great opportunity.”

Hoosier softball team looks to slow down Boilermakers BY DAN MATNEY email@example.com @Dan_Matney
After a tough start to the Big Ten season, the IU softball team (9-24-1, 1-5) will head to West Lafayette this weekend for a showdown with in-state rival Purdue (18-17-1, 5-1). The Hoosiers will deal with a very potent Boilermaker offensive attack Friday through Sunday. Purdue currently ranks third in the Big Ten in batting average at .312 and leads the Big Ten in hits with 301. Senior outfielder Andie Varsho has provided a spark for the offense, putting up the second-highest batting average in the conference at .486. She also leads the conference with 54 hits. With an offense as dangerous as Purdue’s, pitching is go-
ing to be an important factor in determining IU’s success over the weekend. Despite her struggle against Ohio State, allowing five earned runs without recording an out, IU senior pitcher Meaghan Murphy will look to build on her solid performance from Tuesday. Murphy pitched two full innings against Indiana State without allowing a single hit or walk. “I’ve changed my mindset a little bit,” Murphy said. “I’ve put whatever happened in the past in the past, and I’m going out in the circle with a fearless mindset. It allows me to throw the game that I know I’m capable of throwing.” IU softball Coach Michelle Gardner has placed an emphasis on slowing down the high-powered Boilermaker offense.
“We need to hold their runs down,” Gardner said. “It’s been our nemesis. We have to play our game and limit run production.” The Boilermakers have been dangerous on the base paths. They have 46 steals this season, which trails only Wisconsin in the conference. “One thing about Purdue is that they are going to run on you,” Gardner said. “They are going to make (IU catcher Kelsey) Dotson throw, which is something that she has proven she can do.” Dotson exhibited this against the Sycamores, throwing out two runners as they attempted to steal second base. Purdue also is a strong pitching team. They have the fourth lowest earned run average in the conference (2.76), but teams have shown the ability to get hits off the pitch-
ing staff. Gardner noted that the team has been putting hits together in recent games. “We really need to keep hitting,” she said. “We’ve been hitting a lot better lately. It’s been encouraging.” IU senior left fielder Jenna Abraham, who hit her second home run of the season Tuesday, said the team is focusing on the positive things they have done offensively. “We are leaving the negatives behind,” Abraham said. “We are building on the positives heading into the series against Purdue.” Abraham said the renewal of a rivalry, such as the one with Purdue, is going to further motivate the team. “There’s always extra motivation when we play Purdue,” LUKE SCHRAM | IDS Abraham said. “We want to re- Relief pitcher Meaghan Murphy throws a pitch during Tuesday's game ally take it to them.” against Indiana State at Andy Mohr Field.

Dozens of shirtless players danced around their coach. Junior catcher and preseason All-American Kyle Schwarber was the first to start dancing. He was rhythmically taking off his catcher’s gear and, eventually, his red IU shirt. He ran to IU Coach Tracy Smith along with a few other IU players. Immediately, the mosh pit began. The players then abandoned their head coach and ran to their assistant coaches. Dozens of players now jumped shirtless, an assistant coach at the center of the mosh pit. The scene died down, and the players dispersed, laughing. Smith had some questions. “What the hell was that?” Smith said to nobody in particular. “Somebody want to tell me what just happened? Is that, like, some Internet thing?” A video of the prank was later posted to the team’s official Twitter account. The April Fools’ joke the players executed on their coaches demonstrated the looseness the team has played with the past week. Leading into the series against Ohio State, Smith said his team had been pressing the whole season. The team was trying too hard, he said, and the subsequent results were not befitting a team ranked No. 3 in the Baseball America preseason poll. “It’s got us inconsistency,”
Smith said of his team pressing too much. “So let’s just be who we are and get back to that.” IU swept Ohio State in Columbus, Ohio, last weekend. The Hoosiers outscored the Buckeyes 21-7 and outhit them 42-19 in the three-game series. The No. 24 Hoosiers (15-10, 5-1) will try to replicate that success in Iowa City, Iowa, this weekend. IU will take on Iowa (16-9, 3-3) in another threegame Big Ten road stint. The Hawkeyes have had mixed results this year. After taking two of three games from Nebraska — a team projected to finish second in the Big Ten in the preseason — the Hawkeyes lost three of four games, including a defeat against Bradley and two losses to Michigan. The Hoosiers will try and stymie the efforts of Hawkeye pitcher Calvin Mathews. Mathews was named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week Monday after his performance against Michigan, in which he led Iowa to its only win in the series. Mathews threw a complete game, surrendering six hits and two runs. He struck out nine batters and walked none. He will be matched up against IU’s staff ace, senior Joey DeNato. DeNato is 5-1 this year with a 2.22 ERA. With his last start, DeNato now holds the record for most strikeouts in IU history. Sophomore Christian Morris will get the start Sunday. Monday’s starter has yet to be announced.
Track to compete across the country BY TORI ZIEGE email@example.com @ToriZiege
From Tuscaloosa, Ala., to Palo Alto, Calif., IU track and field athletes will spend the weekend honing their skills against the nation’s top competition. In Palo Alto, junior Samantha Ginther will look to duplicate a record-setting run. Last year, she ran the thirdfastest women’s 5k in school history, carrying on a long tradition of success at the Stanford Invitational. Four of the top-10 women’s 5k times in school history have been set at the Stanford Invite — Ginther’s included. At 16:15.34, the performance was a lifetime best. But Ginther said she hopes that mark will change on Friday. “Stanford is a place where it’s really easy to run fast because all the races are set up,” she said. “I’m in the same heat that I was in last year so hopefully I place a little higher and push a little harder and the PR will come.” Two weeks ago at the 49er Classic, Ginther set another school record in the women’s 3k steeple chase. The effort earned her the seventh-best time in IU history and Big Ten Women’s Track Athlete of the Week honors. Sophomore Cornelius
Strickland also had a strong performance at the 49er Classic. He competed in a total of five different races with topfive finishes in each event. This Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Strickland said he will focus on the 100- and 200-meter dash, keeping his end-of season goals in mind. “My goal for both races is to get my ticket to regionals,” he said, “I’m staying real focused, just keeping my eye on the prize.” The Crimson Tide Invite will offer Strickland plenty of opportunities for fast results. “My competition is hard, it’s challenging,” Strickland said. “These are the people we beat last year in regionals, so I just want to come back and show them that I didn’t go anywhere.” Meanwhile, in Palo Alto, the men’s distance runners will chase the school 10k record that was set at the 2011 Stanford Invitational by IU alum Andrew Poore. IU Coach Ron Helmer said Stanford provides his team a chance to capitalize on early season success and stability. “I think that everybody that goes should run a time that will get them qualified for the NCAA first round,” he said. “If we can get that done this early in the season, then we can start filling in the gaps and train. It gives us a lot of options.”
