Hart suffers injury, will miss rest of 2014 season FROM IDS REPORTS

‘Ethnic Studies’ department proposed, protested

Ligament repair

Junior starter Kyle Hart will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the remainder of the 2014 season, according to an IU news release. “This is a tough break Kyle Hart for Kyle,” IU Coach Tracy Smith said in the release. “But surgery is the best option for him right now.” Hart came into the season as the No. 2 starter and was named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week in back-to-back occasions in March. He had a 3-1 record with a 2.29 ERA and gave up just three earned runs in March with a total of 28.1 innings pitched. The injury to his arm occurred March 30 against Ohio State. Hart had thrown four innings in his start and walked out to

The Tommy John surgery repairs the ulnar collateral ligament by taking a piece of ligament from another part of the body and patching the torn area. The recovery period for this procedure is 12 to 18 months.

After learning about a proposal to merge Latino Studies, Asian American Studies and First Nations Educational and Cultural Center into one Ethnic Studies department, sophomore Rachel Colegrove created a petition to resist the proposed merger. Faculty and students in the Latino Studies program attended a meeting April 1 organized by Latino Studies Dean John Nieto-Phillips to foster discussion about the future of the program. The meeting was prompted after Nieto-Phillips attended a College of Arts and Sciences meeting where the idea of joining the programs into Ethnic Studies was proposed. “The intentions are quite good,” Nieto-Phillips said. “The intention is to raise visibility of ethnic scholarships and programs at IU. The question is, how do we do that? And a department of Ethnic Studies was brought up, but the consensus among faculty and students is clearly this is not the best way.” SEE ETHNIC STUDIES, PAGE 7

New degree planner launching BY KATHRINE SCHULZE schulzek@indiana.edu @Kathrine_Schulze

Incoming freshman will have a new way to plan their education this August with the launch of IU’s degree mapping program. The Indiana state legislator mandated all public universities provide a map for all Indiana residents who will attend a state-assisted university. “It’s impractical for IU to distinguish between doing this for Hoosiers and doing this for out-of-state students, so we will do it for everybody,” said Herb Terry, president of the Bloomington Faculty Council. IU already offers degree maps for most majors, said Dennis Groth, interim vice president for undergraduate education. “In many ways they have this information now available, but they don’t

have it in exactly the form the general assembly required,” Terry said. There will be a map for every major for all seven of IU’s campuses. And eventually, all minors and certificates will be mapped out as well, Terry said. Groth said IU has taken an innovative approach to the legislation’s mandate. “We saw this as an opportunity to embed our values in our solution to this,” Groth said. IU-Bloomington already has the highest ontime completion rate in the state for public institutions, Groth said. “We’re already doing well,” he said. “We can improve, though. We can have more students finish and finish on time. And we can have more students retained to graduation as well.” The faculty will still define the required classes in

courses before it even happens. “We want you to, as a student, always be the owner of your destiny,” he said. “That means that we want you to make choices. You currently make choices, but we want your choices to be informed by information, and that information will be what’s implemented in your iGPS.” Groth said iGPS will build on tools that are already in place for students, such as the OneStart course planner and schedule builder. All are tools to help students plan their time at IU well and far in advance of graduation. “You don’t always stumble into success,” Groth said. “It’s something that you’ve thought about, that you’re intentional about.”

the curriculum, and students will still be able to choose their own paths, he said. “You can’t map every possible way to fulfill our requirements,” Terry said. One concern of the faculty is that this new system will keep students from realizing they can take a different route to graduation, Terry said. “And I think the other thing that some faculty is concerned about is yes, of course, we want students to graduate in a timely fashion,” he said. “But ultimately I think it’s more important that the student follows the degree that, in their career, is best for them.” Groth said the system will be flexible to allow for the changing students’ paths, and will hopefully be able to catch a student’s setback in terms of taking, or not taking, required

NSA could have exploited virus FROM IDS REPORTS New information has been made available on the Heartbleed virus, which incriminates the National Security Agency. The virus was made public Monday as a vulnerability in some versions of the OpenSSL program, an encrypting tool that is widely used on the Internet to protect sensitive information like credit card numbers, that’s able to bypass security and access the protective information. According to a press release, Bloomberg News reported April 11 that, according to “two people familiar with the matter,” the NSA knew about the Heartbleed virus for more than two years, and they kept it a secret and used it to collect information. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence denied the allegation, hours after Bloomberg released the information. Fred Cate, director of IU’s Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research said the allegations, if true, will show a White House unwilling to

listen to the independent advisors it appointed to help ease the privacy and security leaks made public by Edward Snowden. “Normally such an absolute denial by a federal agency would be taken seriously,” Cate said in the release, “but the number of apparently unambiguous denials by the intelligence community that, over the past year, have been proven false or seriously misleading has caused serious credibility issues for the NSA and the DNI.” “DNI” refers to the Director of National Intelligence. In a 2013 testimony given by DNI Director James Clapper and former NSA Director General Keith Alexander, they claimed the NSA doesn’t collect information on Americans. The release suggests this claim turned out to be either only partially true, or completely false. “After a succession of such statements — and no action in response by Congress or the president — it is not surprising that many people doubt the NSA’s denial of any knowledge of the Heartbleed bug,” Cate said.

products and services to enhance its ability to collect intelligence, even though this actively weakens both government and private-sector infrastructure,” he said. Because of these issues, Cate called for the NSA to be divided into two separate agencies. The President’s Review Group included his recommendation in its December 2013 report, according to the release. The group also recommended that the NSA not hide or use security vulnerabilities except in “rare instances” and for short periods of time. President Obama declined to follow either recommendation, the release said. “The president has identified cyber threats as among the most critical dangers facing the nation,” Cate said in the release. “Yet, it is hard to take this claim too seriously when key responsibility for fighting those threats is given to the agency with the most to gain by hiding and exploiting them.”

The release said the issue of whether the NSA knew about the greatest threat to data security in the Internet’s history, according to some experts, would not be an issue at all if the NSA didn’t continue to work two seemingly contradictory missions: cyber security and foreign intelligence. Cate, who is also a professor in the IU Maurer School of Law, filed comments with the President’s Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technology in October 2013. “Privacy and security advocates have long worried that in pursuit of the latter, increasingly dominant mission, the agency would learn about software and other vulnerabilities and rather than disclose or attempt to fix them, the agency would exploit them, thus compromising the former mission,” he said in the statement. Cate said disclosures by Snowden made other issues clear. “The agency has gone a step further and actively introduced vulnerabilities into commercial security

FROM IDS REPORTS Starting in 2015, IU students will have the opportunity to experience what an IU press release called the “greatest single collection of American history,” working as interns alongside museum staff at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History. IU is the first public university to secure a coveted internship slot with the Smithsonian and, beginning in 2015 and continuing for the following five years, the museum will be host to at least one undergraduate or graduate student from the IUB School of Public and Environmental Affairs’ Arts Administration Program. “This is an incredible opportunity for our students to work with the nation’s top historians, scholars and curators,” said Mark Case, director of SPEA’s Career Development Office, in the release. “We’re grateful to the Smithsonian and eager to start the process of selecting our first intern.” The Arts Administration program is housed in SPEA and aims to provide students an “intellectually and culturally stimulating experience in the study and practice of arts management while preparing themselves for leadership in the arts in the decades ahead,” according to its website. Its goal is to foster artistic creativity, while maintaining

Interns will also work closely with museum staff on exhibits and related museum projects, in addition to attending weekly seminars that will allow them glimpses into the inner workings of the world-famous museum. “Our Smithsonian interns won’t be standing in the shadows and observing,” said Michael Rushton, director of SPEA’s Arts Administration program, in the release. “This is a hands-on internship with meaningful responsibilities. We’re preparing the next generation of cultural leaders, and what better place for them to learn in the field than at the Smithsonian.” The Smithsonian is home to some of America’s greatest, most beloved U.S. artifacts, including President Lincoln’s top hat, Dorothy’s ruby slippers and the original Star-Spangled Banner. On its website, the Smithsonian describes its internships as “learning experiences guided by a mentor ... which provide benefits relating to an intern’s education, coursework, or career goals.” Competition is fierce, the website warns.

YC Bioelectric, a start-up biomedical research company by Purdue University and IU-Purdue University Indianapolis, will receive funding through a 12-month period from the National Institutes of Health, according to an April 14 IU press release. YC Bioelectric is a privately-owned biomedical research company, and was just awarded $307,787 of funding for its Phase 1 Small Business Technology Transfer proposal, “Multi-Blot Western Device,” according to the release. The co-founders of YC Bioelectric are Stanley Chien and Hioki Yokota, both faculty at the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI. They started YC Bioelectric through the Indiana University Research & Technology Corporation’s Spin Up Program. Chien and Yokota’s work will greatly improve the speed and accuracy of Western blot, a technique widely used in molecular biology labs, according to the release. Western blot can help

diagnose chronic infection with HIV, according to MedlinePlus, a U.S. National Library of Medicine service. Currently, it is often paired with the HIV ELISA test, which is commonly used to detect antibodies in the blood: the second detector of HIV, according to the MedlinePlus website. “This is a great story about scientists, an electrical engineer and biomedical engineer, collaborating across disciplines to solve a real-world problem,” said Joe Trebley, head of IURTC’s Spin Up Program, in the release. An IUPUI granting mechanism, Funding Opportunities for Research Commercialization and Economic Success, originally funded Chien and Yokota’s work. They used those funds to develop and build a prototype device, according to the release. “We are delighted that the internal grant program played a key role in enabling these researchers to transform their research findings into

Dumps harmful to Griffy habitat BY M.K. WILDEMAN

marwilde@indiana.edu @mkwildeman

Aquariums dumped into Griffy Lake introduced an invasive plant species to the lake in recent years. The plant’s gone now, but wildlife managers at Griffy want to prevent aquarium dumps from reintroducing the pest. Brazilian elodea is a common aquarium plant that invaded the lake in the past. Steve Cotter, the natural resources manager for the City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation department, said he cannot be completely sure, but there was significant evidence that the Brazilian elodea was introduced after aquariums were dumped into Griffy Lake. Colorful aquarium rocks were found on Griffy’s shores, and the Brazilian elodea is a popular plant for home aquariums. Invasive plant species such as the Brazilian elodea can affect the lake environment and make boating and fishing more difficult for visitors to the lake. The plant tends to clog boat motors. “It can have a devastating effect on ecology and recreational potential of the lake,” Cotter said. In 2004 and 2005, aquatic vegetation surveys were performed by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. The Brazilian elodea ranked third in abundance. The City of Bloomington Animal Shelter will accept aquariums and their aquatic plants and animals. A press release from the City of Bloomington Environmental Commission, said it can be harmful to the environment to empty aquariums into natural or man-made waterways, including lakes, streams, rivers, wetlands, storm drains and toilets.

The City of Bloomington Housing and Neighborhood Development Department announced Monday that applications are available for its 2014 Citizens’ Academy program. Citizens’ Academy provides participants with an interactive learning experience about municipal government services, programs and responsibilities, according to a press release. City residents who are interested in civic participation or increasing their knowledge about local government operation can apply online at the City of Bloomington’s website at bloomington.in.gov/neighborhoods.

Recycling law to create jobs, reduce waste BY AMANDA MARINO ammarino@indiana.edu @amandanmarino

IDS FILE PHOTO

The Griffy Lake environment has struggled in the past with invasive plant species. Although the Brazilian elodea, a common aquarium plant, is no longer present at Griffy, it could be re-introduced.

“It is our responsibility as stewards of our local environment to take necessary care to assure unwanted plant and animal species do not become established in Bloomington,” the release said. Cotter described Brazilian elodea as being about the diameter of a cat’s tail with many leaves on the stem. Because it grows in groups, the aquatic plant becomes very dense, which makes fishing and boating difficult. “It looks like you can walk on it,” Cotter said. Instances of people dumping their aquariums into Griffy Lake are difficult to track. Cotter said he thought these aquarium dumps might happen at night and could happen anywhere on the lake’s shoreline. “It’s a very hard thing to monitor,” Cotter said. Many non-native species seem to be coming from the South, Cotter said. There are theories that the plants’ success is because

of the warming climate. The growth rate of invasive species seems to be increasing compared to noninvasive species. Brazilian elodea generally grows better in warmer areas, Cotter said. “Some believe that the speed of invasions is increasing because of increasing temperatures,” Cotter said. IDNR reported finding Brazilian elodea at about a third of testing sites in Griffy in 2005. Griffy Lake was the first public access lake in Indiana where the invasive species was found. The Lake and River Enhancement Program, which is affiliated with the IDNR, funded a fluridone treatment in 2006 and 2007 to eradicate the Brazilian elodea. The lake was surveyed again in August 2007 and no Brazilian elodea was detected. The treatment implemented to get rid of the Brazilian elodea led to the growth of some fish species.

Originally, IDNR felt there was the potential for the native plant community to suffer as a result of the Brazilian elodea invasion, but the native vegetation has returned and re-colonized the area once inhabited by the Brazilian elodea. “Despite exhaustive searches, no Brazilian elodea has been detected in Griffy Lake since spring 2007,” a report from the IDNR says. As of the report’s publishing in 2009, efforts to control invasive species are targeted at the Eurasian watermilfoil and curlylead pondweed. The Brazilian elodea could be re-introduced if any more aquariums are dumped. The City of Bloomington Environmental Commission is working to take preemptive action to prevent invasive species from encroaching on native plants in the Griffy environment. “It does change the biological community if it is allowed to persist in the lake,” Cotter said.

FROM IDS REPORTS

The Bloomington Police Department is looking for help locating the driver of a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run accident that injured two men. At about 9:37 p.m. April 1, BPD responded to 17th Street and North Willis Drive on a call of a car accident involving serious injury. A light-colored, fourdoor passenger car was traveling eastbound on 17th Street when it collided with the rear of a moped, police said. The driver and passenger of the moped were thrown over the hood of the passenger car, police said.

After the collision, the passenger car continued eastbound on 17th Street from the accident scene and was later captured on a nearby video surveillance system, police said. The driver of the vehicle was described as a white male in his early- to mid-twenties. The light-colored car would have sustained damage to the driver’s side front bumper, light assembly and hood. Any person with information regarding the accident is asked to contact Detective Rick Crussen at 812-349-3374. Rebecca Kimberly

Legislation recently signed by Gov. Mike Pence may reduce the total amount of waste produced in Indiana by 50 percent. After much discussion and bipartisan involvement among Indiana leaders, House Bill 1183 might provide Indiana with a smaller carbon footprint, more jobs and a stimulated economy. Larry D. Barker, president of the Association of Indiana Solid Waste Management, said studies conducted by Purdue University and Ball State University determined between 50 and 60 percent of what was going into landfills was recyclable. This was determined by having trash trucks empty their collections onto tarps and having students sort through the trash by hand. “This is larger than most people realize,” Barker said. Barker said Indiana is currently falling behind many other states in the United States in terms of environmentally friendly plans such as recycling. “We have been lagging behind for years, and this now is going to move us up the ladder,” he said. He said the solid waste districts he works with were formed in 1970 because trash was being shipped into Indiana from the East Coast. Laws needed to be created to regulate solid waste in the area. “We developed 20-year plans, and all of these kind of expired in 2010,” Barker said. “They were good plans, but they all needed to be tweaked and refreshed.” Putting trash into landfills is what makes money for the waste industry, but Barker said this plan has more risks than benefits. “The waste industry is massive,” he said. “It is a

multi-billion dollar industry.” HB 1183 should be environmentally friendly and provide more jobs in Indiana, Barker said. Electronic Recyclers International built a facility in Plainfield, Ind., that employs 350 Hoosiers, Barker said. He said nothing in this process is outsourced because jobs are needed here, and at times the conditions in other countries are dangerous and unhealthy. Though outsourcing this recycling job would be cheaper, Barker said this system is more beneficial overall. “It’s sad that people don’t understand the dangers they’re putting other people in to make a buck,” he said. HB 1183 will reduce the waste in landfills by pulling out all the recyclables, Barker said. “The ultimate goal is to reduce the waste stream,” he said. The recycling will either be done at a transfer station or on site at the landfill and can be accomplished in several ways, Barker said. Usually, the waste is sorted with machines such as tumblers that rotate the waste until the recyclables fall out through screens. He said there are magnetrons that pull out metal objects and eddy currents to identify aluminum in the mix. Optic sorters will use lasers to identify recyclable materials, and air currents will blow them apart from the pile of waste. Another method is for individuals on the sorting line do the work by hand, Barker said. This kind of work is already taking place in several cities across the nation, such as Sunnydale, Calif. After being sorted, the recyclables are then sent to manufacturers to make new SEE RECYCLING, PAGE 5

Two men arrested after selling heroin to police FROM IDS REPORTS

The second narcotics investigation of the year led Bloomington police to arrest two men for dealing heroin last week. The investigation began in late February with undercover police informants conducting a series of controlled buys in the city’s southwest side. Samuel Jackson, a 33-year-old man from Kentucky, sold heroin to a police informant out of his home at Tech Park apartments on South Rockport Road on Feb. 26 and March 4, according to court documents. He provided police with 0.3 grams of heroin on the first controlled buy and 0.1 grams of heroin and 0.1 grams of meth on the second buy. Jackson met with a police informant to receive payment March 11 at a Village Pantry on East Winslow Road off of South Henderson Street. Police were able to observe Jackson go to the 800 block of East Miller Drive where he obtained drugs from Michael Miller, 57, according to court documents. Jackson sold police 0.4 grams of heroin for the third and final buy before his arrest. In Indiana a judge may not issue an arrest warrant for a person until probable cause has been established, according to Indiana law. In narcotics investigations several controlled buys are routine in order to

establish sufficient evidence. Several weeks later, Bloomington police arrested Jackson after he picked up Miller from East Miller Drive. Jackson lied to police and said his name was Craig Francis until police showed him his BMV picture and arrest warrant. Police found heroin on Miller’s person, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Joe Crider said. Both Jackson and Miller were arrested Wednesday for drug felony charges. Miller faces one count of possession of a controlled substance. Jackson faces three counts of dealing a narcotic drug and one count of false informing. Jackson’s initial hearing is scheduled today at 1:30 p.m. Bloomington police arrested Jermaine Obryan Hardin, 27, March 22 for dealing heroin after a narcotics investigation involving three controlled buys made throughout May and June of last year. Hardin pleaded not guilty in March and has a pretrial conference scheduled for May. Dennis Barbosa

Assessor will be opposed in general election BY KATE STARR kastarr@indiana.edu

William Ellis was taken off the Monroe County primary ballot for assessor in February for not having his level three assessor-appraiser certification, but will likely be back in the race for the general election when the county votes to fill the empty Republican Party ballot slot. Ellis recently received his certification April 1. Although he still cannot take part in the primary, the Republican Party can hold a caucus of all Precinct committeemen and vote him in. This is only allowed when there are no other candidates on the ballot running for the position. Since Ellis is the only Republican certified to run, he said he will get the nomination after the primary, which puts him on the ballot for the general election. “The party chairman and everybody considers me the candidate currently,” Ellis said. “I still have campaign finance open. It’s the first time in 10 years anyone has challenged our current assessor.” Ellis criticized the election laws for favoring the

incumbents more than the challengers. Current Assessor Judy Sharp does not have her level three certification and does not have to get it unless she decides to run again four years from now, Sharp said. Ellis, on the other hand, does have the certification. “There are two different standards for incumbent and challenger,” Ellis said. “If you have a lower standard for an incumbent and a higher standard for the challenger, that can be a problem.” Certification aside, Sharp said Ellis still cannot run because he does not own property in Monroe County, but Ellis is not discouraged and has continued to campaign against his opponent. Last week, Sharp announced at the Monroe County Council meeting the county had settled a 7-yearold appeal that will cost the county and other taxing units $705,000 in tax refunds to The Fields, an apartment complex on Fenbrook Lane. In 2007, an out-of-state company purchased The Fields for $34 million. As soon as the company bought the property, it appealed the county’s assessment of $33.8 million. Sharp said the own-

ers wanted it for $22 million, but the Property Tax Assessment Board of Appeals disagreed, sending the appeal to the state. Years later, the assessor’s office, under Sharp’s leadership, and the owners agreed on an assessment value of $28 million, but because the appeal sat untouched for so many years at the state level, it gained interest. “I couldn’t take the chance of going from $35 million down to $22 or $23 million,” Sharp said. “It was bad enough going from $33.8 million to $28. It would’ve been double that if I had lost and, frankly, I don’t know what would have happened.” Ellis, however, said he doesn’t think the county should let Sharp’s decision slide. “What will happen in December, the township, the people who got that money, the schools, all the taxing districts are going to have to repay that to the county,” Ellis said. “The schools in that area are going to have to pay close to $320,000 in tax revenue.” Sharp admitted this is the largest appeal she has ever lost and acknowledges Bloomington and the

The current Monroe County assessor, Judy Sharp, has not been challenged for her office in 10 years. William Ellis was originally removed from the ballot but expects to receive the Republican nomination at a caucus.

Monroe County Community School Corporation will be the hardest hit, along with the Monroe County Public Library and the Monroe County Solid Waste Management District. She asks, however, that the losses in tax dollars be put into perspective. “Remember, you’re

talking $700,000,” Sharp said. “The total assessed value in Perry City is over $3 billion with a ‘b.’ When you’re making millions of taxes each year, you have to put that in perspective.” However, Sara Laughlin, director of the MCPL, feels differently about the impact the tax refunds will have on

the library. “The total for us is $31,466.04, so that is a staff position and benefits for us,” Laughlin said. “It’s not an insignificant amount and, of course, we’re always horrified when we find out about any loss in our budget because it really impacts our services.”

Friday, April 25

The Downtown Bloomington Recycling Center has new hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. It is recommended that recyclers divide their waste into paper, cardboard, glass and plastic before driving to the Center.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 products. Barker said Indiana Recycling Coalition Executive Director Carey Hamilton predicts as many as 10,000 jobs will be created for people in Indiana. Prices for recyclable commodities fluctuate with aluminum and fibers, such as cardboard being some of the most mobile, Barker said. Glass has been relatively stable for the past five years. “Either way you go, the waste has got to be disposed of,” Barker said. Because of this, Barker said people are either paid to take away trash or they are paid more to recycle it. “We have total support from the recycling manufacturing industry,” Barker said. He said Alcoa makes use of the recyclables collected in Indiana. The company produces everything from beverage cans to parts for jumbo jets. Barker’s main frustration is with plastics. “A lot of people don’t even understand the plastic world we live in,” he said. Plastics are made with petroleum. If they are recycled, they reduce our dependency on foreign oil, Barker said. When done correctly, the community will be more sustainable, reduce its carbon footprint and stimulate the economy, Barker said. He envisions businesses getting immediate payback. Recycling will be free, but people will pay for what goes to the landfill, Barker said. This price will virtually be cut in half if the amount of material going to landfills is also halved. This benefits residents and businesses and leaves them with money they will invest back into the community, thereby stimulating the economy, Barker said. Barker said people have been positive and receptive to the idea in Monroe County and across Indiana. There will be a meeting April 22, Earth Day, to discuss the implementation of the plan. Though plans have not been finalized yet, the goal is to remove three million

tons of recyclables from the six million tons of trash in Indiana, Barker said. He said mining the landfills will probably not be part of the plan. “The whole goal of this bill is to catch it before it goes to the landfill,” he said. Critics believe start-up costs, which have not yet been fully determined, will be a setback. Barker said he can’t think of a business that doesn’t have a start-up cost. It is necessary for him. IU will also benefit from this bill as a business, saving money on trash removal. Associate Director of Residential Programs and Services Environmental Operations Steve Akers has worked on this project for the past four years, Barker said. “Steve was very vocal in having recycling containers on campus,” Barker said. Akers was a primary part of the desk-side recycling bins being placed in every office on campus. They are larger than the regular trash bins, forcing people to reconsider if they need to throw something in the trash or if it can be recycled. “We already have a goal on campus ... which is 40-percent waste reduction by 2020,” Akers said. Akers said he has been working with the Recycling and Resource Group in the IU Office of Sustainability for a while now to implement these changes. “That’s not something that is going to happen overnight,” he said. Things like recycling bins and systems in all residence halls and dining halls have been a large part of this, but Akers said he thinks education may be one of the most important factors to change the way recycling happens on campus. “The only difficulty I see would be funding,” Akers said of plans to try to purchase, label and place even more recycling bins around campus to match the number of garbage cans. Students can help by recycling on their own, Barker said and, overall, this change will greatly benefit all of Indiana. “There is no downside,” he said.

JORDAN RILEY is a sophomore majoring in comparitive lit.

A United Nations panel focused on climate change released reports on the state of the environment and, not surprisingly, found governments are not taking the steps necessary to avoid disaster. The report states, as a global community, we need to make extensive changes to cut down on carbon emissions in order to keep atmospheric temperatures at a livable level without breaking the bank. In 15 years, the question will no longer be about what we can do for the future but about how we are going to undo the past. The report states we will be forced to rely on expensive technology that does not exist yet — and very well might not exist in the future — to remove toxic gasses from the air. Instead of looking forward to that gamble, I’d rather cut out many of the toxic gases as we can now so we don’t have to reverse them later. This is the third report to come out in the last few months concerning climate change. The other two mentioned in the New York Times also state facts I thought we already knew, like the undeniable connection between the actions of humans and global warming and the increasing danger and frequency of the effects of global warming already being felt. The report suggests that the most cost-effective way to promote lowcarbon energy is to tax carbon-heavy industries that rely on burning coal. This will create an incentive to invest in more climate friendly options, which are now more effective and cheaper than ever. Changes made to stop, or at least slow, the broiling of our planet will of course cost money. The report finds climate-friendly technologies currently available are becoming increasingly cost-efficient. We can afford to make the changes in the next 15 years that need to be made. What we can’t afford is to wait any longer and be forced to rely on pipe dream technologies that will be completely out of our price range. With the increase in natural disasters and the melting Arctic ice, as well as general increase in yearlong temperatures, it seems crazy to me that people are still denying this. Continued ignorance on the subject will result in serious and likely irreversible effects for everyone. The truth is, sooner or later everyone is going to feel the effects of climate change. If we wait any longer, it’s going to cost a lot more to stop it, if we can at all. Establishing global and government-instituted changes is the most cost-effective solution for now and could help avoid playing catch-up later.

WE SAY: OKCupid reminds us that hypocrisy doesn’t discriminate. Last week, the Editorial Board discussed the ousting of Mozilla Firefox CEO Brendan Eich by OKCupid for his contributions to anti-gay marriage groups. Immediately after our editorial was published, there was a new development in the story. Apparently, OKCupid CEO Sam Yagan donated about $500 to anti-gay politicians in 2004. And oh, how the plot thickens. In fairness, Yagan’s donation was a smaller amount and less recent than Eich’s. Yagan said he was not aware the politician he was supporting was anti-gay rights. However, if Yagan was going to make a fuss

about Eich’s minimal contributions to a California law eight years ago, he needed to have made sure he had all his bases covered. Coming out with excuses after the information was leaked was not the way to go. Now it looks like OKCupid was trying to capitalize on a movement without doing any real work. Let’s all just be honest, the pop-up message about Eich’s views was a little passive aggressive. Since Yagan’s own skeletons have come out of the closet, it invalidates the work OKCupid was trying to do. It’s good to keep in mind all of these

donations to laws and politicians happened years ago and were extremely small contributions. But turnaround is fair play, and hypocrisy never looks good on anyone. Lesson learned here is, don’t start a witch hunt. Yagan wanted to do some good, so he dug. In digging, he came up with a non-scandalous donation made years ago. Instead of ousting an awful person from a public position, he made Eich a martyr. He also gave people a reason to look into his past. If you give people a reason to dig, they will. More often than not, they will find something.

The same debate comes up again. If the CEO is a bigot, but doesn’t let his bigotry inform his professional decisions or company policy, it doesn’t really matter what his personal views are. People can recognize what is appropriate and what isn’t. They know how to keep their personal and professional spheres separate. And at the end of the day, the fact OKCupid was the crux of this scandal speaks volumes. Maybe we shouldn’t rely on a dating website for our political views. opinion@idsnews.com IDS_Opinion

CONSYDERATIONS

A dangerously comedic high After a long, exhausting weekend of eating pizza and watching movies on Netflix, a realization hit me. Without even noticing it, I have been brainwashed into thinking that there aren’t any side effects of heavy drugs. Or if there are, they aren’t a huge deal. Our whole childhood, we were taught to stay in school, don’t talk to strangers and say no to drugs. And as fifth graders, we all swore that we would never try any type of drug. However, now that we are at an age where drugs are most available and appealing to us, we are being shown only their fun aspects. One of my favorite scenes of any comedy is in “21 Jump Street” where Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill take the drug. Each stage of the drug was funnier than the previ-

ous one. I could not stop laughing the entire time. It didn’t even occur to me I was laughing at a highly dangerous thing until I talked to my younger sister about the movie. She had found it just as funny as I did, which kind of concerns me. That got me to thinking about how Hollywood portrays drugs to its viewers. Pop culture tends to glorify drugs in a way that makes people want to do them. When we were little, we only saw the scary and gruesome side of drugs. Nowadays, I only see the fun aspects of the same drugs. I even find myself singing about them when songs like “We Can’t Stop” by Miley Cyrus are stuck in my head. One of the hit TV shows right now is “Weeds,” a comedy about a single mother who sells marijuana. And,

of course, we can’t forget about “Breaking Bad,” which tells the story of a man who makes meth. While a show about weed isn’t that big of a deal to me, because marijuana doesn’t cause that much harm, a show about meth has me a little concerned. Shows like these are becoming the norm in our society, and drugs aren’t seen as a huge problem like they used to be. And when a movie or show demonstrates one of the negative aspects of drugs, they tend to mention it briefly instead of emphasizing the seriousness of the situation. I’m not going to say Hollywood is completely in the wrong for making some light of drug use. There is obviously an appeal that comes from drugs, otherwise people

wouldn’t use them. But there should be a balance in how drugs are portrayed. It is completely up to the individual whether or not they want to try drugs. Using drugs of any type will produce both positive and negative sides for the users and the people around them. Movie and TV producers should take this into consideration when featuring drugs in their programs. syrafter@indiana.edu @sydraft

As per usual, social media is now the focus of last week’s stabbing tragedy at Franklin Regional Senior High School. Nate Scimio, the sophomore student who was named a hero by classmates has come under fire for posting a selfie on Instagram just minutes after the stabbing occurred. The photo has been highly scrutinized by websites and newspapers across the country, citing Scimio as an attention seeker and even going as far to say his only motive for pulling the alarm was a bid for fame. Typical. Very pathetic, but typical. Our generation is unfairly criticized for our supposed overdependence on and constant use of social media and cell phones. The negative connotation linked with social media, smart phones and today’s youth is simply a waste of energy. We’ve grown up with it, we’re directly marketed to want it and buy it. We see nothing wrong with it. Social media is not going away anytime soon, and this event shows only its significance. Most of the nation learned of the stabbing via social media or smart phone, so why is this guy being criticized so heavily for simply exercising his right to citizen journalism? As a teenager in 2014, taking an Instagram selfie is merely second nature. Whether you approve of the trend or not, selfies are a daily occurrence of American youth, and I find overanalyzing the content to be more than it is much more inappropriate than the picture Scimio took. Not to mention if the photo had in fact not been a selfie, perhaps taken by a parent or hospital attendant, there arguably would have been no controversy. It’s hardly different, yet due to the strange negative association of teens and their beloved mirror pictures, it’s a national headline. It also is hypocritical to fault this guy for using social media to let everyone know he is OK, when there are dozens of comments on the Instagram from various news reporters of high stature. An editor at NBC News in New York was just one of many journalists who posted on Scimio’s photo asking for interview time, even leaving a phone number for Scimio to call if he felt “up for talking.” To say the use of social media in this situation is inappropriate is to be expected, because that’s just what those whippersnappers are doing nowadays. It’s also narrow minded. The art of social media in journalism is being taught in universities all across the world including this one. Not necessarily because our generation needs instructing, but to prevent comments like the one left on Scimio’s photo from “Animal,” a news site based in New York City. The comment left asked for Scimio to “get in touch” with one of their reporters in order to “use this tragedy to get some more page views.” Now, that is what I would label as an inappropriate use of social media. cnmcelwa@indiana.edu @clairemc_IDS

But the idea of merging the Latino Studies, Asian American Studies and FNECC together under an Ethnic Studies Department angered Colegrove. “It’s about saving money and consolidating,” Colegrove said. “It would be great to have these organizations collaborate, but it doesn’t mean we have to have an Ethnic Studies Department and take away their power.” One of the problems Colegrove said she has with the proposed merger is melding the programs together under Ethnic Studies, because the proposed department is not well defined. She said she doesn’t understand the need or want to merge. “It doesn’t make sense statistically to lump it under these other programs because of the popularity and desire there is to continue Latino Studies,” Colegrove said. In fact, she said the interest Latino Studies has gained should merit that continuation. “The sheer numbers of enrolled Latino Studies students shows it shouldn’t be demoted,” Colegrove said. “If it

Young will meet with groups of four constituents at a time for 15 minutes apiece. Time is first-come, first-served, and constituents should call in to 812336-3000 ahead of time. Young recently sponsored a bill to change the Affordable Care Act’s definition of full-time employment from 30 to 40 hours per week. He, too, has sponsored and supported similar bills in attempts to delay the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. His seat is up for reelection in November, and he is running against two other candidates — Kathy Heil and Mark Jones — in the Republican Party primary May 6.

“Junot Diaz was enormously successful and the Latino Film Festival happened all because of Latino Studies,” Colegrove said. “Latino Studies has its own voice on campus and resources as a program. If it has to share resources, you lose a lot of events.” The merger that would produce Ethnic Studies would send a bad message to Latino students and others about how diversity is valued at IU, Colegrove said. “It’s marginalization,” Colegrove said. “It’s taking a step backward in giving minorities voices. By putting them under Ethnic Studies we’re ‘othering’ them and shoving them into corners — sending a really bad message to Latino students.” “Othering” describes the act of ostracizing an individual or group because they are different. Larry Singell, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, confirmed in an email that there has been talk of a merger between the programs, but said nothing is set in stone. “It is true that such a merger has been discussed both within the Dean’s office and with the units,” Singell said. “However, no decision has been made and no decision

Such a decision would require significantly more discussion and asking questions.” Nieto-Phillips said he sees the current proposals as the beginning of a conversation of how Latino Studies fits into the College of Arts and Sciences and the new Global and International School. “There is no plan right now for such a merger,” Nieto-Phillips said. “From my vantage point as director of Latino Studies, we’ve embarked on a conversation with faculty and students to gain a sense of what Latino Studies should become.” He said he even sees the possibility of creating a Latino Studies department. “Eventually, it’s not inconceivable that Latino Studies, like African Studies, gains departmental status,” Nieto-Phillips said. “The question is when, and it’s not something that can take place over night. The Latino population will continue to grow and additional pressure will be on the administration from students and public for more Latino oriented programs and commitment to diversity.” During the conversation, Nieto-Phillips said he encour-

ages students to express their feelings and opinions, reiterating he doesn’t want his role as director to overrule student views. After the meeting, Colegrove said she took Nieto-Phillips’ encouragements seriously. She started campaigning for Latino Studies’ independence last week. “It’s important to have the undergraduate voice,” Colegrove said. “There’s only so much faculty can do be-

the administration.” Currently, her petition has about 90 signatures online and about 40 handwritten ones, which Colegrove said she plans to send to President Michael McRobbie and Provost Lauren Robel. Students can sign the petition on change.org by searching her name. “If people want to get in touch with me or Latino Studies professors, I can point them in the right direction,” Colegrove said. “More important than signing the petition, though, is writing comments and a statement as to why you support this cause.” Colegrove said she hopes to get more than 500 students to sign, to send a strong message and secure Latino Studies as an independent program. “In an ideal world, it would be nice to say that we’re all just one big human race, so let’s celebrate those similarities in an Ethnic Studies department,” Colegrove said. “But I don’t think we’re at that stage yet. We’re still not giving enough voice to minorities and I think the way this is going isn’t about ethnic studies. It’s about these other groups they don’t know what to do with.”

Xavier, senior closer Ryan Halstead — who has the record for most saves in IU history — tore his ACL, sidelining him for the remainder of the season. In the weeks since Hart’s injury, sophomore Christian Morris has cemented himself as the team’s No. 2 starter. The issue of who will replace Morris as the No. 3 starter is still in flux. Sophomore Will CoursenCarr got the start Sunday but struggled. He had control issues and only threw one inning against Morehead State before Smith pulled him. After Coursen-Carr and sophomore Evan Bell struggled Sunday, junior Luke Harrison came in and righted the ship by throwing 4.1 innings. Harrison looks to be the next in line to get an opportunity as the No. 3 starter when Michigan State comes to Bloomington Friday. Evan Hoopfer

In his funeral home, G.L. Chandler promotes an atmosphere in which suits and ties are hardly worn. “It makes people think you believe you're better than them," Chandler said. This welcoming theme stretches across the walls of the funeral home as well — a relaxed tone is set from the trains flanking the directors at their desks. The trains are Chandler’s childhood obsession lost in time.

Barb’s widower Steve Baker embraces Chandler after Barb’s funeral. Over the years, Chandler grew close to Steve, a former employee, and Barb, a good friend. "Steve is one of the luckiest people I know being married to someone like her," Chandler said.

Chandler prepares for a service in the back office with the other two Chandler Funeral Home directors, Ron Wayt and David Jarrett. The three men spend most of their days together, eating lunch at Cracker Barrel or going to the mall on slower days.

ELLETTSVILLE, Ind. — The funeral director pours water over the woman’s body as he tells her about his day. G.L. Chandler talks her through each step of the embalming. He smooths her thin gray hair. He places caps in her eyelids, gently closing them, shading her blue eyes. They no longer have the familiar glint that he knew for 25 years. Once she is dressed in her black pants and purple ruffled shift, he helps tuck the woman into her lightpink casket. He leans in to rub her forehead. “Hello, sweetie pie,” Chandler says.

Comeback kid Saucedo returns as leader both on and off the field after recovering from ACL injury

BY DAN MATNEY cdmatney@indiana.edu @Dan_Matney

In the first Big Ten game of the 2012 season against Ohio State, IU scored two runs to decrease the Buckeyes’ lead to one run. The team was looking to get three quick outs and to return to the plate in order to continue the comeback attempt. With a runner on first in the bottom of the sixth inning, IU senior shortstop Breanna Saucedo set to go through a routine out. Saucedo said the batter bunted to former IU first baseman Amanda Wagner, nicknamed Wags. “Wags threw it to me at second and my foot was in front of the base when the girl slid into second,” Saucedo said. “Her slide fractured three bones in my foot.” The injury didn’t require surgery, but she was in a walking boot for four months. By the end of the season, she was back to running and fielding ground balls. Heading into 2013 — her senior year — Saucedo was looking to return and build on her strong performance from the previous season. In the 28 games before her foot injury, she registered nine multi-hit games, had a .319 batting average and scored 18 runs. Against Ohio’s Miami University in the sixth game of the year, Saucedo felt a slight pain in her knee while attempting to take second base on an overthrown ball. “There was an overthrow at first, and I turned to run to second,” she said. “When I rounded the base, my knee gave out.” Saucedo said she didn’t feel a pop in her knee, and she was able to walk off of the field under her own power. The next day, the training staff informed her that she had a partially torn ACL. “I was able to keep walking on it for two weeks,” she said. “I ended up also tearing my meniscus after practice while fielding ground balls. The meniscus was definitely more painful than the ACL.” * * * After her surgery, Saucedo spent every day from February to July working with three members of the training staff to return to full health. IU Coach Michelle Gardner said Saucedo worked hard every day to get back onto the field. “She worked so hard to come back,” Gardner said. “She was very diligent with her rehab. As soon as she was able, she was in the cage taking extra cuts. Even when she couldn’t practice full, she was out there doing everything she could to help the team.” After she regained the ability to run at full speed in July, Saucedo was granted a fifth year of eligibility by

the NCAA and decided to return to Bloomington. Gardner attributed Saucedo’s return to her competitiveness. “She’s so competitive,” she said. “She could’ve forgone her fifth year, but she really wanted to play.” Despite suffering three serious knee injuries in a two-year span, Saucedo said she was more than ready to make her return. “I wasn’t nervous to return at all,” she said. “After missing two years, I couldn’t feel anything but excited. I was so eager to get back out there.” Despite Saucedo’s excitement to return, others in the clubhouse were both nervous and anxious to see her comeback, including Gardner. “As a coach, there’s a fear factor,” Gardner said. “There is a hope that she doesn’t get hurt again. She wanted to be here and compete with her team. She’s worked so hard to get back. It is truly amazing to see.”

* * * As a lifelong athlete. Saucedo never suffered a serious injury before 2012. The only time she ever broke a bone was in a minor snowboarding accident her freshman year of high school. “I broke my wrist snowboarding,” Saucedo said. “Other than that, I’ve had no serious softball injuries.” Prior to the injury during her junior season, Saucedo already secured her name in the program’s history books. She became just the second player to ever lead the team in hits during her first two seasons. The task had not been done since Dianna Christiansen did so in 1977 and 1978. Despite three serious injuries in two seasons, which limited her to appearing in 34 of a possible 109 games, Saucedo picked up where she left off. She started and played in 41 games this year, and she currently is fourth

With a .342 batting average, 50 hits and 24 runs scored this season, she leads the team in all three categories. Saucedo registered her 200th career hit April 9 against Michigan State. The injuries haven’t changed the way Saucedo competes on the field. The only thing that has changed is her view on playing the game. “I appreciate it more,” she said. “Every time I’m on the field I really take it in and leave all that I have on the field. Every game. Every inning.”

» CHANDLER

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 and collect himself. Sometimes he’s too tired to come to work. He thinks about death every day. More and more, he has begun to think about his own. * * * Chandler founded the only funeral home in Ellettsville, Ind. in 1976. Now, Chandler Funeral Home buries about 120 people each year, sometimes six in a day. His name can be heard in Ellettsville grocery stores and around dinner tables, the man who has buried members of hundreds of families in the small town. He often cracks jokes about the heavyset bodies he embalms and playfully whacks his other funeral directors, Ron Wayt and David Jarrett, in the butt with his cane. His thick Kentucky accent can be heard yelling out of his Cadillac window, “Hey Pedro,” to a construction worker who appears to be Hispanic. “I have a tendency to say the wrong thing at the wrong time,” he says. He has never had much of a filter, and his friends sometimes tell him he never shuts up. His first wife, Susan, calls him a clown. “I think that’s kind of why he’s so quirky,” Susan says. “It’s how he deals with it.” His laid-back kindness makes customers feel like family, Jarrett says. “There’s not one other person that’s taken better care of this community than he has,” Jarrett says. If it were up to Chandler, he would live until he was 200. He doesn’t worry about his own death. After all, he gets a free funeral. He has even reserved a tombstone at Chambersville cemetery in Ellettsville. More than anyone, Chandler understands the reality of death. It’s coming, and he might as well be ready. * * * Growing up in Slaughters, Ky., a town of about 200 people, Gabriel Lorenzo Chandler Jr. always wanted to be a funeral director. It might have been the undertaker who would come to Slaughters — his hearse was the blackest, shiniest car Chandler had ever seen. As a 6-year-old, Chandler would walk around with a little black book, his funeral bible. He remembers burying dead birds, making marks where he left them. When he was 15, he says, his mom drove him 10 miles so he could work for a funeral home in the area. For about 20 years, Chandler ran the funeral home on his own. He and his wife Susan and their son Jeff lived in an apartment upstairs. He spent every hour of the day performing services. It was a time before cell phones, when funeral directors did everything, including driving ambulances to late-night death calls. On some nights Chandler had to wake up multiple times to pick up bodies. Susan answered phones and met with families. They never did anything as a family, she recalls. She went on her son’s Boy Scout camping trips while Chandler tended to the home. Chandler was married to the business. He has divorced three times. “I’ve never really been able to divorce myself from the funeral business,” Chandler says. The closest thing to love for Chandler was probably when he was married to his first wife, Susan, he says. But even then, things got in the way. Sometimes it was the temptation of other women. Sometimes, families at the funeral home took priority over his own. But as long as the town loved him, it didn’t matter that he wasn’t perfect. “That was the only thing I ever did in my life that was right I think,” Chandler says. “I can’t imagine not being able to go down there and sit in my chair.” Like his father’s old grandfather clock in the main entrance to the funeral home, Chandler is always there. The image of a round face with small eyes on the grandfather clock watches every client that steps through the door. The clock’s tired hands

Ron Wayt positions a body on the embalming table with the legs raised in order to promote blood flow as it drains from the body and is replaced with an orange embalming fluid mixture.

have ticked for more than 25 years in the same corner, its pendulum swinging back and forth. * * * It was September when Chandler realized Barb was dying. She was his blue-eyed friend of more than two decades, the wife of a former employee, the woman he called “sweetie pie.” Barb had fought ovarian cancer for three years, but the doctors said there was nothing more she could do. “I’m gonna lose my girl,” Chandler said. Barb stopped in for a visit at her favorite funeral home, and the Chandler staff planned everything with her. The funeral would be held in her church, and her favorite minister would read the 23rd Psalm. She ordered a casket bouquet of lavender roses and chrysanthemums. It seemed perfect. She was almost excited for the funeral. She couldn’t stop talking about it to her husband or to Chandler. Chandler talked to Barb on the phone two to three

times a week. She would often stop by the funeral home with Chandler’s favorite horehound candy from Cracker Barrel or freshly made chocolate-chip cookies. Whether Chandler knows the client or not, he tries to treat everyone equally. But with Barb, he knew the funeral wouldn’t quite be the same. And listening to her talk about her approaching funeral didn’t make the wait any easier, he said. It made it that much more real. In her last week alive, Chandler visited his old friend in hospice, even though he was reluctant at first. He wondered whether she would be responsive. Would people think he was there on business? She was heavily medicated, but as soon as Chandler walked in, her face lit up. Chandler knelt down, and took her hand, and kissed her cheek. Chandler didn’t stay long — Barb was weak and tired. But he hoped this wouldn’t be the last time he would see Barb. He was certain Barb was headed to heaven, and he knew she wouldn’t be alone. He had sent many friends ahead of her. Chandler had even asked Barb to say hello to his mom when she got there. “You’d better believe it,” Barb said. Barb also had a final request for Chandler. She asked him to play a specific song at her funeral, a tune that was

all too familiar to him. It was the same song played at his mother’s funeral. “When God calls my number and it’s time to go/ I’ve made preparations and I want you to know/ I’ll be in that number that meets in the air/ Make me a promise that you’ll meet me there.” * * * Working with bodies doesn’t bother Chandler. Embalming is the easy part, he said, and, sometimes, he finds himself talking to the dead. It helps occupy his thoughts. It makes it a little bit easier. One time, a woman’s body was left in the funeral home for 13 days — the family wouldn’t claim her. He would chat with her every day in that embalming room. “We got to be buddies,” Chandler says. “You don’t have to worry about the dead ones — it’s the live ones you’ve got to watch.” The funeral director’s job isn’t to cry with people. It’s to help families get through the rough. Chandler keeps a calm front even when he’s not on the job. He didn’t cry at his mom’s funeral, and Chandler’s first wife, Susan, says she never once saw him cry. “I guess I’m just programmed to do that,” he says. “You just divorce yourself from what you’re doing.” If he’s learned anything in his 55 years in the business, it’s that nothing is permanent — if he gets too attached to something, or someone, they could be gone in a blink. The funeral home has been the only stable part of his life — a place that faces endings on a regular basis but seems to never have an end of its own. Like the floral wallpaper that hasn’t changed, like the grandfather clock that hovers in the corner, like the tombstone with the funeral home’s name carved in front of the building, the Chandler Funeral Home seems set in stone.

Tools are set out that will be utilized while embalming a body, preparing the deceased for funeral proceedings. All tools are sterilized between embalmings.

* * * Chandler never plans to retire. This summer, he plans to move out of his house a few streets away and return to his apartment above the funeral home. He just can’t get away, he says. “This is my whole life right here,” Chandler says. “This has been constant.” But he knows that someday, he will no longer be able to oversee the funeral home. He will have to hand over the business to the other two funeral directors. His son Jeff will be the figurehead, but Wayt and Jarrett promise to continue what Chandler started. They will carry on his motto, “Family Caring When You Need It The Most.” “Do you love your mama?” Chandler always says. “Then you treat everyone who walks through this door like you would your mama.” Wayt, who left a job dressing Disney characters in order to dress the deceased, has brought a fresh pair of SEE CHANDLER, PAGE 16

New jazz ensemble debuts BY BRANDON COOK brancook@indiana.edu

Jacobs School of Music master’s student and awardnominated jazz guitarist Matt MacDougall led the debut concert of the IU All-Campus Jazz Ensemble at Rachael’s Café Monday night. The performance featured pieces composed or arranged by Frank Mantooth, Bill Holman, Rob McConnell and Count Basie, among others. Nearly all of the performers were students not majoring in music who joined the ensemble out of the desire to play in a big-band setting. “It’s eclectic,” said Neil Hicks, the ensemble’s bassist. “A good group effort.” Despite having been formally trained in music from a young age, MacDougall, who formed the 17-person ensemble with Tom Walsh, did not discover his inclinations towards jazz and classical until he began playing guitar at the age of 13. To date, the musician has performed at the Halifax Jazz Festival, the Ottawa Jazz Festival and the Galaxy Rising Stars Youth Summit Group, in ad-

dition to performances alongside musicians such as Jerry Bergonzi, John Abercrombie, Tim Hagans, John Surman and Mike Murley. MacDougall currently serves as an associate instructor in the Jacobs School of Music’s jazz department, but his experiences are not strictly limited to teaching and live performances. In September 2012, he released the album “Familiar Faces,” a collection of eight tracks that crosses multiple genres and fluctuates between loose, hip-hop beats and a firm bebop sound. The album was released on Armored Records, a record company devoted to promoting the work of up-and-coming musicians. “I got some mileage out of it,” he said. “All the things that built my foundation manifested themselves in that album.” “Familiar Faces” was nominated for the 2012 East Coast Music Award for Jazz Recording of the Year. Following the release of the album, MacDougall was able to perform at several highly renowned venues including the Kennedy Center Millennium

Stage with Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead 2013 and at the 56th Annual Montery Next Generation Jazz Festival, an event that draws hundreds of artists, from high school students to icons like Herbie Hancock and The Roots. “I was very humbled by these experiences and felt very welcomed into the jazz community,” he said in a statement on a Kickstarter page. As of February, the guitarist has been working on his sophomore album, “Boy Goes to City,” which he said will feature a hard-driving groove laced with the influences of rock and alternative hip-hop, all within an improvisational or jazz context. Other members of the album ensemble include the Grammy award-winning saxophonist Jeff Coffin, saxophonist Adam Carillo, pianist Alex Wignall, bassist Roy Vogt, drummer Arianna Fanning and Grammy-nominated sound engineer Denny Jiosa. Although MacDougall’s own compositions featured stylistic influence from jazz fusion and alternative genres, Monday night’s concert was rooted in the big

band artists of both early and contemporary, 20th-century composers, such as Count Basie, Frank Mantooth, Bill Holman and Burt Bacharach. The set-list featured such famous tracks as the bossa nova tune, “Black Orpheus,” the traditional, brass-heavy “After You’ve Gone” and the jazz staple, “Watermelon Man.” “We range from 1930s through 1940s big band sound, pushing towards a more modern big band sound,” MacDougall said. With crowds trickling in throughout the night, the venue was packed with an enthusiastic audience. Even when tables and chairs became crowded, people remained standing and, occasionally, swaying.

POSTCARD FROM PARIS

Singers’ Circle traditions may end as founder departs BY CHRISTIAN KEMP cjkemp@indiana.edu

The Bloomington Traditional Singers’ Circle meets every month to sing traditional folk music, often songs that were passed down orally for generations. But last Sunday’s event may have been the last time for the Singer’s Circle to honor those traditions. David Wood, founder of the Singers’ Circle, is moving away from Bloomington to Kansas. “It is only going to keep going if people keep coming to sing,” Wood said. The Circle is made up of a group of people that sings traditional folk music from England, Ireland and Scotland. The group has also incorporated associated traditions, which formed in the United States and Canada, as part of its singing event. They meet on the second Sunday of every month at the Runcible Spoon. The groups are usually small, ranging from two to 10 people, but the public is welcome to listen. Educated as a folklorist, Marge Steiner has been part of the Singers’ Circle since it formed about one year ago. She said she has been

coming to the Runcible Spoon since it opened in 1976. “This was always a very congenial place,” Steiner said. She said she came to Bloomington to study folklore, but the quality of life in Bloomington influenced her decision to stay here. “This is home even though I am originally from New York,” she said. Traditionally, the songs sung at the Singers’ Circle were passed down through families orally. With the advent of accessibility to pen and paper, and later digital recording devices, it became easier to archive the music. A Celtic group called Scartaglen, founded near the town where Wood was raised, was an inspirational outlet that motivated Wood while he was studying traditional music. Wood has a diverse musical background and currently serves as a music director for WFIU Public Media and Bloomington’s First United Church. He said he enjoys generating musical experiences that can be appreciated by a broad audience with various musical interests. Traditional music is often folk songs, which have been passed through the generations.

Radiology General Health

“It is only going to keep going if people keep coming to sing.” David Wood, Bloomington Traditional Singers’ Circle founder

The songs are frequently learned by rote, which means the singers commit lyrics and melodies to memory through repetition. The majority of traditional songs sung in the Bloomington Traditional Singers’ Circle are unaccompanied, meaning only one vocalist will recite with no instruments. Wood said the songs that have a long-lasting effect on culture may have collective reasons for still being practiced. Often, he said, these factors are good stories turned into effective lyrics that define a cultural heritage. A deep meaning is often exemplified by a skilled voice and carefully selected lyrics. Many stories tell tales of people’s lives. “It brings people together,” Steiner said. “Many of the themes are timeless, whether it is love or loss or joy. These songs survived because they speak to people even in changing circumstances.”

ANU KUMAR | IDS

Claude Monet’s gardens in the commune of Giverny, France, served as inspiration for many of the artist’s famous paintings.

Claude Monet’s gardens ANU KUMAR is a junior majoring in journalism.

If you are familiar with Claude Monet’s famous collection of paintings, “Water Lilies,” Giverny is the perfect daytrip from Paris to see Monet’s canvases come to life. The small village of Giverny is also home to an art museum featuring work by Impressionist artists, but is most famous for Monet’s home and gardens. Though Monet’s gardens have their own kind of beauty, as you walk through the village, it seems as though the entire area has been touched by Monet’s paintbrush. Flowers of every kind peek

out from every corner, and long stretches of vines hug each home. The streets are full of strolling tourists, musicians singing and strumming along, and ice cream trucks cozied up on each corner. Walk a little deeper into the village, following the rows of greenery and flowers, and you will come across Monet’s home and gardens. Visitors can walk into his studio, kitchen and bedroom. The bright yellow walls of his dining room, patterned blue tiles in his kitchen and the amount of Japanese artwork that decorate the walls give visitors insight into the life of this famous Impressionist artist. The gardens seem to

garner the most attention by far. There is one garden right outside Monet’s house with row after row of flowers, varying in species, color and size. The second garden can be reached through a small set of stairs near the entrance. It is home to the famous Japanese-style bridge spotted in Monet’s work. Here is where you see the canvas of water lilies come to life. Beginning around 1887, Giverny became a popular spot for many American Impressionist artists due to the presence of Monet — the overall tranquil atmosphere helped a little, too. anukumar@indiana.edu @AnuKumar23

» CHANDLER

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 eyes to the home. Chandler has been stuck in the past — he refuses to understand technology and uses nothing but the large blue typewriter behind his desk. Since he’s gotten older, Chandler has trusted Wayt and Jarrett more and more. But he resists change. He’s not looking forward to the day when he will no longer be sitting at his beat-up desk. Down the hall, the grandfather clock chimes. It’s the end of the workday, and the pendulum keeps swinging. * * * Barb’s body lies at the front of the church, surrounded by flowers. Tissues pile up on the sides of pews as a tear-filled audience of 250 listens to Barb’s song. Chandler reminds himself that this is just another funeral. But the song keeps playing. “I was trying to think of anything but,” Chandler says about the funeral. “And they had to play that dumb song.” “Make me a promise that we’ll meet someday/ Where mansions are waiting in that land far away.” Chandler furrows his eyebrows, clenches his chin, holding in the tears. He doesn’t cry in front of the others — he waits until much later. After the service, Chandler walks around the back of the church, patting old friends on the back, shaking hands, hugging members of the audience he’s known for decades, family members of Ellettsville residents he once buried. One by one, each family member walks up to Barb’s casket, touches her hand, whispers goodbye. Wayt steps forward to take her glasses off and he hands them to Chandler. “Why don’t you take me a picture of her?” Chandler asks, handing Wayt his iPhone. Wayt snaps a photo of Barb in her casket, then closes the lid. * * *

As Barb’s funeral comes to an end, Chandler refuses to help carry her casket. Barb’s husband had asked him to be a pallbearer, but it was just too hard for Chandler to swallow. Burying a body is always the hardest part. After leaving the church, Chandler’s Cadillac leads the dozens of cars into Chambersville cemetery. Gathered around Barb’s closed casket at her gravesite, the minister leads them in a final reflective Bible verse, 2 Corinthians 4:18. “We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” As the Cadillac drives away from the gravesite ceremony, Chandler sits in the passenger seat, telling Wayt to drive off the road onto the lawn. He wants to go see his grave. Chandler quietly hums the tune of “Make Me a Promise” as he stares out at the tombstones of more than 500 people he has buried here throughout the decades. He thinks about their stories, their families, their grief. They drive to the far corner of the hill, overlooking the nearby city street. He points at one tombstone, the tallest in the row. The tombstone was carved recently with the name “Chandler.” He picked the spot himself, the corner on the hill overlooking North County Line Road. If he’s going to be stuck in that cemetery forever, Chandler says, he might as well be able to flip off the people driving by. Chandler knows heaven exists, but he’s not sure if he’s going to make it. He knows he’s made his share of mistakes. There were times when he was loyal, and there were times when he wasn’t. But those were the choices he made, and he can’t look back, he says. “You try to live your life to the fullest and try not to hurt people,” Chandler says. “That’s where I’ve screwed up, and that’s not good.” When he’s buried, in that hillside overlooking the street, his full name will be carved

G.L. Chandler and Ron Wayt stand back from their jobs and allow themselves to attend their close friend's funeral. Seventy-year-old Chandler has buried more than 500 people under the ground on which he stands, the same ground upon which his own gravestone awaits.

Chandler and Wayt remove some of the trinkets from Barb’s casket during her visitation and funeral. G.L. embalmed Barb’s body and oversaw her funeral. She was one of many friends he has had to bury.

Chandler has reserved and engraved a tombstone at Chambersville cemetery in Ellettsville for his own burial. He plans to include the words, “I’ll be quiet now.”

into the tombstone. He has already picked out the words to go with his name. “I’ll be quiet now.”

the home will need to be reconstructed. The flood is a wake-up call, Chandler says, and maybe it’s a sign. “Maybe the good Lord is trying to tell me something,” Chandler says. “Shape up, boy.” Time is limited, Chandler realizes. Water wears away even stone. Everyone will eventually be swept away. Chandler is shaken, but

* * * Three days before Christmas, a month since he buried Barb, Chandler fights tears as he walks through the ruins of the funeral home. The night before, Wayt had stepped inside to find 15 inches of rush-

ing water. The water had spilled in from Temperance Street, where it reached almost over Wayt’s head. Mud, branches, leaves and sewage floated into the home in the murky water, causing $200,000 worth of damage. The carpeting is ruined, the dry wall will need to be replaced two feet up the wall, three sofas will be thrown out and the entire inside of

he knows it could have been much worse. He vows to return the funeral home exactly to how it was — the same floral wallpaper, the same 1970s decorations. “We’re bringing it back from the dead,” Chandler says. In the corner, the grandfather clock stands covered by white plastic. The pendulum doesn’t swing. It’s broken.
