Winner takes all Late Cardinal rally sets up regional championship Monday between Stanford and IU BY EVAN HOOPFER

Coming into the game, IU was 39-0 this season when leading after seven innings. In the top of the eighth with two outs and a 6-4 lead, IU was four outs away from a second consecutive super regional berth. Down two runs, Stanford Coach Mark Marquess put outfielder Wayne Taylor into the game as a pinch hitter. The Cardinal’s postseason life needed a clutch hit to stay alive. And Taylor delivered. He hit a three-run home run that gave Stanford the one-run lead. “I think that was a pretty good pitch,” Taylor said of the home run he hit off IU closer Jake Kelzer. “I ended up getting the barrel on it and driving it pretty well.” The Cardinal tacked on three more runs in the top of the ninth as extra insurance, and they knocked off the Hoosiers 10-7 in front of 3,524 stunned IU fans at Bart Kaufman Field. Stanford’s win sets up a rematch between the two teams. IU (44-14) and Stanford (33-24) will play at 5:30 p.m. Monday on Bart Kaufman Field.

“We’re going to be out there ready to go play for our tournament life.” Kyle Schwarber, IU catcher

The stakes are simple. The winner goes on to super regional play and keeps its dream of a national championship alive for at least another weekend.

The loser’s season is done. “We’ve got our own destiny in our hands,” IU Coach Tracy Smith said. After Kelzer came into the game in the eighth inning with two outs, Stanford scored three runs in the eighth and ninth innings to put the game away. Kelzer only recorded two outs in his appearance, and he allowed four earned runs. Despite being just four outs away from a victory, Smith said his team is where it needs to be mentally. “I don’t have to say too much to these guys,” Smith said. “We’re going to go take a shower, go eat, sleep, get up and come ready to play baseball. It’s pretty simple.” On who will pitch Monday, both Smith and Marquess said they don’t know who will start. They will talk with their respective coaching staffs before making a decision. Among the possible starters for IU are senior Brian Korte, the No. 3 starter in the regular season, and sophomore Sullivan Stadler, who was the midweek starter toward the end of the year. Whoever starts for IU will have to contend with a Cardinal lineup who put as many runs on the board as the IU pitching staff has allowed in more than two months. The last time IU gave up 10 runs was March 26 against Indiana State — 36 games ago. That was also the last time IU lost by more than one run. In the previous 35 games, IU was 32-3 and had lost those three games by just one run. Stanford pitcher A.J. Vanegas threw 5.1 innings, the longest he’s gone all season. He’s battled injuries all year, and

his longest outing before that was four innings. Vanegas threw with strong velocity, and at points reached the upper 90s on the stadium radar gun. After Cardinal starter Logan James went just 1.2 innings and gave up four earned runs, Marquess went to Vanegas with his season on the line, and the senior delivered. “We told him we’re going to him early because there was no tomorrow,” Marquess said. “We needed to win today to keep playing.” With the most important game of the season Monday, IU catcher Kyle Schwarber said his team is confident. “No one is not out there competing,” he said. “So we’re going to be out there ready to go, and, you know, play for our tournament life.”

Internet increasingly serves as means to buy prescription drugs BRIAN SEYMOUR @briseymo

Walgreens and CVS may begin to see fierce competition from a new marketplace that offers pharmaceutical drugs without a doctor’s prescription. The Internet is increasingly becoming a source for people to buy prescription drugs without the proper paperwork, according to a poll commissioned by the Digital Citizens Alliance and conducted by Zogby Analytics. “More and more people are becoming more aware of the Internet as a marketplace to find these pharmaceuticals and utilize them,” said Adam Benson, deputy executive director for the Digital Citizens

Alliance. Twenty-eight percent of the poll’s respondents said they or a friend have ordered prescription drugs through the Internet without a prescription from a doctor, which is a 13 percent increase from 2013. This substantial jump demonstrates the issue is more prevalent than in the past, and people are progressively becoming aware that prescription medications are easily accessible, Benson said. That’s not the only problem the poll discovered. Thirty-two percent of the respondents said they or a friend had taken prescription medication to get through finals, and a third of this group did so without a proper prescription. “When you talk about a third

of that age group saying they take the prescription medications to get through finals, that’s a very high number,” Benson said. Students using pharmaceutical drugs to stay focused and study for finals can be hazardous, said Courtney Stewart, coordinator of research translation at the Indiana Prevention Center Resource Center. The drugs used to keep a student focused on studying are often psychostimulants, such as Adderall and Vyvanse, Stewart said. “These drugs can place the brain in a state of hyperfocus,” she said. “This can then affect the sleep cycle and leave one SEE PRESCRIPTION, PAGE 8

Williams reflects on achievement BY ALEXIS DAILY

Susan Williams, Walter W. Foskett Professor of Law at IU’s Maurer School of Law, will receive the 2014 Tracy M. Sonneborn Award. The Sonneborn Award honors the exceptional research and teaching of an IU faculty member. The award was named for the late Tracy Sonneborn, a genetics professor at IU and successful biologist. The Sonneborn Award winner receives a $3,500 award and a grant of $1,000 to support research, or any other creative project, according to a press release. In the fall, the Sonneborn Award winner will also give the annual Sonneborn Lecture. “Susan Williams is truly deserving of the Sonneborn Award,” Provost and Executive Vice President Lauren Robel said in the release. “She is an inspiring teacher who brings out the best in her students.” Williams said she originally focused on constitutional law, specifically the American constitution’s First Amendment and the implication of feminist theory for the right of free speech. But about 10 to 15 years ago, she said she got involved in advising constitutional reformers in other countries. This required her to think more about how to build more democratic and egalitarian societies in countries needing constitutional reform. “We don’t just write articles, we draft constitutional proposals,” Williams said. “This is not just theoretical work.” When Williams met with Burmese people, she said they raised legal issues with no parallels in the American constitutions and no scholarship available on these topics. She has also traveled to Liberia, South Sudan and many other countries to aid in the construction of a new constitution. Williams has worked with women’s organizations in Libya and the Democratic Party in Vietnam. “Most people learn constitutional law by studying their own constitution, but no one was taught from the

perspective of people who were trying to write a constitution,” Williams said. The Center for Constitutional Democracy’s Ph.D. program, “Law and Democracy,” began six years ago, and its first two students are graduating this year. Williams said the Center on Constitutional Democracy has allowed her to take students and faculty alike to experience constitutional crises around the world. “Through the CCD, Professor Williams provides a large number of students and faculty, myself included, with a rich and incredibly valuable learning community,” said Professor Christina Ochoa, Williams’ colleague. Williams said this Ph.D. program is an interdisciplinary degree with focuses in area study, political science and anthropology. It also has an internship component in constitutional advising, which gives students practical and theoretical applications in the real world. To the best of her knowledge, she said, no other law school offers a program like this. “Most law schools do not have Ph.D. students, so with our programs, it is possible to develop true relationships with future colleagues,” Williams said. Ochoa said Williams always received strong and glowing reviews for her teaching. She said she has never heard criticism of Williams’ teaching from any first-year student. “To all those present at Professor Williams’ Distinguished Faculty Lecture last spring, it was plain why Professor Williams should also be recognized for her rare ability to combine her scholarly insights with the clarity, warmth and passion that teach and inspire her colleagues, her students and every audience I’ve known her to address,” Ochoa said. Williams said being awarded the Sonneborn Award was a wonderful way of feeling like people noticed and appreciated the work she did. “Winning the award makes you feel like you’re part of a conversation with other scholars across disciplinary lines,” Williams said.

Fiege program reaches kids BY CARMEN HEREDIA RODRIGUEZ

Angela Fiege has taken it upon herself to make sure her daughter’s death is not in vain. Doctors from the IU School of Medicine teamed up with IU students this month to present a drug and alcohol prevention program at Zionsville High School. Angela created the program after her daughter, Rachael, who was an IU freshman, lost her life in an alcohol-related fall last year. The workshop, titled Rachael’s First Week, is designed to help high school students cope with the transition into college and communicate the challenges they may face during their post-secondary education. “We feel that collegebound students are not aware of the significant challenges that this new social environment can bring,” Alex Rhea, coordinator of Rachael’s First Week, said in

an email. Participants watched a short video documenting Rachael’s senior year of high school and the summer before she was to attend IU. Doctors and college students then led the participants in a discussion regarding safety and the resources available to use in an emergency. “By conveying real-life experiences from current college students and medical relevance from resident physicians, we hope to prevent tragedies, like Rachael Fiege’s death, from occurring,” Rhea said. The program was debuted at Rachael’s former high school. “A lot of the students knew Rachael personally, so the presentation hit very close to home for them,” Rhea said. “Their honest questions let us know how important this message was and how little preparation students get for the challenges of the new social environment of college.” On average, Indiana stu-

dents begin drinking at the age of 13, according to the 2013 Indiana Youth Survey, a voluntary questionnaire taken by Indiana students from sixth to 12th grade. Upon entering IU, many students view the college experience as an opportunity to go wild, said Mallori DeSalle, outreach coordinator at the Indiana Prevention Resource Center. “They see it as a bubble, where they can do anything and experience everything, and it will have no long consequences,” DeSalle said. “Though that’s not necessarily the truth. Not everyone does that. I think that many young people believe that everyone treats it the same.” OASIS, an information center designed to help IU students with drug-related issues, utilizes prevention strategies such as motivational interviewing to empower students to make their own decisions regarding their consumption of drugs and alcohol. “I talk to students a lot

about living intentionally and not just passively,” OASIS Director Jackie Daniels said. “So, if they’re intentionally living in college, that means that they are making decisions about what they want to accomplish in college, instead of coming on campus and going with the flow.” Next year, Rachael’s First Week will aim to expand to other high schools in the Indianapolis area. Rhea said she hopes students who participate in the workshop come away with the importance of caring for others. “No matter the dangers of alcohol or any other challenges college students have, we need to make sure that students know the importance of watching out for each other,” Rhea said. “If a student is worried about a situation or a friend, they should know they have resources that are available to them to make sure we don’t have another tragedy like Rachael’s death.”

No more teen tanning


We say: rein in this chariot of fire As former juveniles ourselves, the Indiana Daily Student Editorial Board feels comfortable saying adolescents don’t generally enjoy the gift of foresight. Not that juveniles aren’t great people. We are totally down with the youths. We’re just saying some teens fail to connect the dots between actions and consequences. But common lapses in young judgment are why the board is thrilled that no one in Indiana younger than 16 will be able to use a tanning

bed starting July 1. Sixteen- and 17-year-olds can only use the beds with parental consent. Under this new law, kids can still use sprays and lotions to get the sun-kissed glow they so desire, but they will no longer have access to the beds. Tanning beds are considered Level 1 carcinogens, according to the American Cancer Society. Other Level 1 carcinogens include tobacco products, formaldehyde and plutonium.

Because we don’t let kids buy cigarettes, mainline formaldehyde or bask in the nuclear glow of plutonium, it’s nice that lying in a box of cancerous ultraviolet rays for hours is off the table now, too. So now that teens can’t give themselves cancer this way, it’s important that adults don’t, either. Being an adult means more freedom, including more freedom to make bad decisions. When it comes to taking care of our skin, we generally make pretty bad

decisions. Skin cancer is something many of us struggle to care about. Multiple applications of sunscreen throughout the day might keep our skin from burning, blistering and peeling off, but it’s such a hassle and it smells weird. And sometimes a sore, bright red back from one sunblock-free afternoon just takes a day or two to turn toasty brown. Toasty brown is more attractive than inflamed orange, but we, the board,

would take pale before cancerous any day. And no doctor, ever, in the history of dermatology (probably), has recommended tanning. We all should limit our tanning time, question why we feel the need to tan in the first place and try healthier habits on for size. Doctors recommend everyone regularly wears sunscreen that protects from both UVA and UVB rays and has an SPF of at least 30. Sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours,

especially between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Hats and sunglasses also provide important sun protection. We know this law, and similar protections, are good for our kids. Now if we could only figure out they’re good for us, too. @ids_opinion




Cropping out choices

Putin’s pipeline

BuzzFeed: journalism’s queen bee

Imagine finally receiving your high school yearbook only to find your school had digitally altered your photo because it was seen as “inappropriate.” This was recently the case for high school students in Utah. When Wasatch High School released its yearbook, students were shocked to see the yearbook staff had made changes to the appearance of several people. V-neck T-shirts were given necklines. Tank tops were turned into T-shirts. Tattoos were removed. Many students claimed they had worn these outfits to school before without violating the dress code, but they were still edited for the yearbook in order to promote “modesty.” The photo editing wasn’t expected, and it caused frustration for many students. Being told their picture wasn’t “modest” or was “unacceptable” for the yearbook embarrassed some. But the thing is, they are high school students, which means they don’t have a say in the matter. If their school says their tattoo shouldn’t be in a yearbook, guess what — it’s not going to be in the yearbook. Even though high school is a time when teenagers are preparing for the adult world, they don’t have many rights within school grounds. They are required to do what the administration tells them, or else they suffer

the consequences. What’s so bad about this lack of autonomy is it all changes when they get out and go to college or work. In high school, many students aren’t even allowed to wear flip flops, but when they get to college they are free to run around barefoot if they so please. Instead of making it a gradual transition into the freedom of college, high schools keep a tight lock on their students and make almost all choices for them. This can lead to whiplash when students suddenly have all this power and no wisdom in channeling it. Many schools see their students as children who aren’t able to make decisions. But they’ll be making plenty of life-altering decisions soon. High schools can still tell students what to wear, what to say, what to read and, apparently, what their photo in the yearbook will look like. No matter how angry the students at Wasatch High School are about their photos being edited, they don’t have a say in the matter. But maybe they should. @sydraft

In the world of geopolitics, seemingly innocent news can have great consequences. Take the Arab Spring, which began when a Tunisian vendor immolated himself after he was told he would lose his livelihood. Or consider the seemingly innocuous miscommunication between East German authorities that culminated in the reunification of Germany in 1989. But one event that foreshadows something rather troubling is the recent deal between Russia and the People’s Republic of China for a $400 billion pipeline between the Caucasus Mountains and Vladivostok, Russia, which will ensure a steady supply of liquefied natural gas into Asia. The agreement also includes Russian LNG flowing into China for 30 years. Despite his passive-aggressive antics in Ukraine, Russian president Vladimir Putin has been busy securing a future market for his petrodollars, which could even further jeopardize Western efforts to maintain security in a volatile region. With the environmental concerns of coal burning quite apparent in China, and with a massive nuclear backlash thanks to the Fukushima-Daiichi meltdown in Japan, East Asian demand for natural gas is high because it burns much cleaner than coal, and it is cheaper than nuclear energy. Add to this the sad reality that American LNG is more expensive to transport by tanker across an ocean, and the current ban on exporting the gas means Japan might soon have to take the Russian option. Though I am loath to spell out doom-and-gloom scenarios, we must not forget what has happened to Germany in regard to the latest instability in Ukraine. About 36 percent of Germany’s natural gas comes from Russia. This leaves German Prime Minister Angela Merkel in a bind because confronting Putin could result in further desperate searching for ore energy. The country is steadily

transitioning away from nuclear power. The frustrating reality is that nearly any tool can be used as a geopolitical bludgeon. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries once tried this tactic on the United States in 1973 after we supported Israel in the Yom Kippur War. The embargo stopped once the cartel began to disagree. But when there is only one chef in the kitchen, Putin will simply export his gas to whomever is willing to pay, despite international condemnation and no one to tell him to stop. What the U.S. should do is learn from Putin’s example and seek to employ, as President Barack Obama has stated, “an all-of-theabove approach.” To counter Mr. Putin’s LNG brute-force diplomacy, the U.S. can begin exporting its own LNG to Europe and Asia. Of course, it may not be as efficient as the Gazprom pipelines, but it does give Europe a breather from the threat of Putin controlling the gas valves. Additionally, more impactful sanctions, such as the ones applied to South Africa and enforced quite heartily during the Carter Administration, will have more of an effect than slaps on the wrist to government officials who frankly could not care less if some of their bank accounts in the U.S. are frozen while others in Switzerland are perfectly valid. It has been months since the Russian maskirovka takeover of Crimea, yet Putin is emboldened by the half-hearted Western response. A Chinese pipeline connects Russia’s east and west, and this little story is emblematic of Putin’s geopolitical velvet glove.

Journalism is facing a change of content. The new ruler of media, the usurper of views, is BuzzFeed and its entertainment model. I came across an article by the Huffington Post about Steve Burns, the host of the TV show “Blue’s Clues.” The story was just more than 530 words long, and it featured seven animated GIFs of Steve dancing around and making faces. The story, which can be considered such in only the most technical sense, asks where the former host went after a mysterious departure from the show. After exploring theories of drug overdose and death by car crash, the big reveal is that he didn’t want to do a kids’ show forever. And he was going bald. This article has the format, weight and creative chutzpah of a BuzzFeed article. So how did it make it onto a website like the HuffPost? While still a news aggregator, the site has some legitimacy in its content. It was the first digital media institution to win a Pulitzer. But is this what our news is reduced to? Are we destined to be peppered with factoids in between pop culture fixes? The short answer is yes. Part of the answer lies in BuzzFeed and the Huffington Post’s common denominator. Jonah Peretti helped found both, and his ideas on digital media are reflected in them. Until now there has been a divide in content style, but the time has evidently come for HuffPost to favor BuzzFeed’s entertainment flavor. Journalism in this country is run as a business. It needs profits to stay alive. Media makes money wherever it can get viewers. And collectively, readers have decided it’s more fun to see lists of 1990s nostalgia and take quizzes about which Disney character they’d be than to read long-form journalism. Ergo, the more we click on these links, the more news sites will switch to this format. Peretti is no fool. He understands what people want, and he created sites that can give it to them. People love rapid media consumption and quick topic changes because it helps them

build and rebuild a personal identity. Peretti wrote on this idea well before creating BuzzFeed. He said capitalism pushes people into a state of flux, where they are unsure of their personal identities, and then it gives them products from which they can build new identities. But these identities must be weak enough that they’re forgotten when a new flux is introduced so the process can start again and more products can be sold. The genius of BuzzFeed is it gives people choices as to how their identities are created. By churning out a seemingly endless stream of clips, GIFs and quizzes, BuzzFeed’s readers are able to take whatever they like and add it all together to create a personal identity. In an increasingly nichebased culture, everyone can be exactly what they want. BuzzFeed and HuffPost are the start of this wave of change, but if their successes continue, others will follow. How long do you think it will take CNN to post 18 ways the Obama administration is TOTALLY “Freaks and Geeks”? Objective, hard-news journalism will suffer more than it already has. But whose fault is this? Is it because of our changing tastes, our disapproval of tough-to-swallow but important news? Do we always need to be building a new identity? Or is it the media’s fault for not finding an interesting way to present hard-hitting truths? Maybe there’s a middle ground, and BuzzFeed will find a way to keep us informed and interested. But for now, your clicks matter. If you complain about the decline of the press, do something about it. Read an article that’s one big block of text. Maybe you can build an identity around the new things you learn.

Comedy festival celebrates live stand-up REVIEW GRIFFIN LEEDS is a senior majoring in English and communications and culture.

Limestone Comedy Festival passes swung around audience members’ necks this weekend as they prepared for a full night of throwing their heads back in laughter. The second annual Limestone Comedy Festival began May 29 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater with headliner Patton Oswalt. Before the first set, Comedy Attic owner Jared Thompson gave his famous four rules for watching live comedy. The last was a mandate: “Laugh your fucking ass off!” For pretty much every moment of this three-day comedy extravaganza, I was either laughing, hooting, clapping or reveling in how incredible it was to bask in the same air as beloved comics. Headliner Patton Oswalt possesses humor that is quite fascinating, particularly in its eclecticism. He made two farting noises and banged the microphone stand on the stage in

anguish. Yet he is unafraid to reference Thebes or compare his cold to “Victorian London,” saying he is “coughing up orphans and soot.” To demonstrate such disparate brows of humor would normally let someone simplify a comedian as enjoyable by all. However, Oswalt keeps generality at bay well beyond the entrance to the BuskirkChumley with his incredible craft of language and protonaccelerator quick wit. More than half of his set was improvised, which means even the most raw and unrevised of his comedy proves to be undiluted genius. Performances took place across several downtown venues such as the Bishop and the Comedy Attic. They provided audiences with live stand-up as well as the opportunity to listen to podcasts as they were recorded. But, most of my time was spent at the shows at the Back Door. Despite the busy décor, nothing could distract from the comedians who all but

hospitalized their audiences with their substantial talent. Erin Foley, a returning Limestone comic, opened with a story about how last time she performed there, she got drunk with the owners afterward and accidentally vandalized the mural in the women’s restroom. Foley thanked the three straight men who opened for her. Aware of their location, they incorporated jokes advocating for marriage equality. As a lesbian comic, Foley said they did a good job but hoped it would be okay if she weighed in on the issue, which was met with showstopping applause. One of my personal favorites was the pint of pure talent named Rachel Bloom, who performed musical comedy about petty break-ups, her obsessive-compulsive disorder and the origin behind the Internet video “Cake Farts.” Carmen Lynch had a charming and quiet girl-nextdoor quality to her, provided this girl-next-door was a little older and might kill your cat if she had the chance.

comedy and drama with Tony-worthy tears in the midst of tales of broken beds and her parents’ love of “Star Trek.” Cristela Alonzo, creator of a soon-to-debut ABC television show, expertly addressed marginalization of Latino-

Americans and other groups with commitment and hilarity. When wordplay extraordinaire Emo Phillips performed, I got to hear jokes I had first heard and loved in middle school. This brought tears to my

eyes, and it reminded me why there is nothing quite like live comedy. As comedians took the stage for three days straight and filled each venue with laughter, it became clear live comedy can never be replaced.

Junior distance runner Rorey Hunter was in sixth place with 20 meters remaining in the 1,500-meter race. Hunter was competing in Jacksonville, Fla., in hopes of making it to the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championship. The top five finishers would qualify for the NCAA Championships. Hunter won his heat with a time of 3 minutes, 45.85 seconds, in a heat in which the top six runners were separated by two tenths of a second. “Somehow he kept his cool and composure and made a nice move right at the end to slide through a couple guys and get through some traffic and find his way to the front,” IU Coach Ron Helmer said. “That doesn’t happen unless you maintain your composure.” Hunter was a member of the Indiana distance medley relay team that finished third and earned All-America

Hoosiers, and it’s their first appearance in the NCAA Championships in the program. “I am just so proud and amazed at what this team has accomplished this year,” IU Coach Steve Peterson said.

The IU men’s soccer team allowed 18 goals in its national championship 2012 season. In their attempt to defend their title in 2013, the Hoosiers allowed 38 goals. Phil Fives will join IU’s backline in 2014, according to a press release. Fives will transfer to IU after playing two seasons at the University of Akron. “We are very happy to have Phil join our team,” IU Coach Todd Yeagley said. “Phil is a very technical player who can play in midfield or as an outside back.” While in Akron, Fives played in a total of 16 matches, and he started in five. Fives saw his playing time decrease during his sophomore season. After playing in nine matches as a freshman with four starts, Fives played in seven matches with one start in his sophomore campaign. Three of Fives’ seven sophomore appearances came in

IU announced the addition of rising junior midfielder Matt Foldesy in January. Fives and Foldesy played together with the Cleveland Internationals in high school. Another member of the Cleveland Internationals was IU’s rising redshirt sophomore defender Zach Martin. Fives will not be the only new face for the IU backline this season. The Hoosiers added defenders Grant Lillard, Tim Mehl, Francesco Moore and Trevor Swartz as part of the 2014 freshman class. Michael Hughes

Ind. officials lament Shinseki’s resignation Secretary of Veteran Affairs Eric Shinseki resigned Friday after a scandal revealed complex problems within veteran hospital administration, which resulted in deaths. Eleven of the deaths occurred in Indiana. In an article on Indiana Public Media, Larry

Catt, Veterans Service officer of the Monroe County Veterans Affairs Department, said he didn’t think change at the top would solve the problems. Additionally, Rep. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., commended Shinseki for his service.

Local food, music provided at Regional festival “It’s nice to come out and sit in the shade after sitting on the hot aluminum seats during the game,” Bloomington resident and IU graduate Tim Riffle said. Riffle and his wife, Sarah, traveled to Phoenix when the team played games against Washington, Utah and Oregon State earlier this season. They said since many of the games this weekend were standing-room-only, fans probably appreciated the extra seating at the festival. IU took its first two games: a 10-2 win against Youngstown State Friday and a 4-2 victory against Stanford Saturday. Both days also saw record attendances for Bart Kaufman Field. Friday’s re-


Fans catching the action at the NCAA Baseball Regional at Bart Kaufman Field last weekend could also take part in a bonus event sponsored by the IU Athletics Department. The Jordan Avenue Festival took place just outside the baseball field, and it aimed to keep fans entertained before, after and between games. Jake Dodds and the Stagecoach Revolver and the All Access Band provided live music, and food was available from Great White Smoke BBQ, Papa John’s and Kids Kettle Korn. Tents and tables kept festival-goers out of the heat.

cord of 4,125 fans was broken Saturday with 4,312 fans. Roy Lubovsky is the dining director for IU Athletics, but he coordinated most of the festival’s events. “It got dumped in my lap, and I sort of ran with it,” he said. Lubovsky said IU Athletics modeled the festival after the Super Bowl experience in Indianapolis in 2012. He said the goal was to create an environment where people could join in on the fun, even without a ticket to the game. “It’s more of a nicety, where people can sit and enjoy music,” Lubovsky said. “And it’s all ages.” Lubovsky said the department hoped to create a place

where fans of all teams could mingle and enjoy the fun. But almost all the fans at the festival were supporters of IU. Workers at the festival gave away IU-themed towels, posters and pom-poms. IU apparel was also available to purchase. The Athletics Department wanted a type of experience different than tailgating for football games in the fall, but it also saw the festival as a training ground for local food truck Great White Smoke BBQ, which began in October 2013. Truck owner Dave White said he had approached IU Athletics about getting involved with tailgating in the fall, and they invited him to

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 7 food banks participating in the program.” Hoosier Hills will receive 850 boxes per month to divide between the five counties. “We try to do it based on the number of seniors in poverty based on the census data,” Steury said. “We estimated that there were 2,400 impoverished seniors in Monroe County.” Hoosier Hills will accommodate 100 qualified seniors. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, firstserve basis, Steury said. The applicants will then be scheduled for an interview in which they will be required to provide income documentation. After the first 100 seniors are approved for the program, any additional applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Steury said Hoosier Hills hopes to expand the 100-person limit in Monroe County. “We envision the program growing,” he said. “Eventually, we hope to be able to add

additional seniors, but that depends on how federal and state caseloads are allocated each year, as Congress and the USDA consider funding availability.” Six-and-a-half percent of Monroe County’s senior citizen population, or those 65 years and older, lives below the poverty level. This is the lowest among the five participating counties administered by Hoosier Hills. Additionally, Monroe County has the highest poverty rate in the state at 24.6 percent. “The supplemental food program is vital for Monroe County,” Steury said. “Monroe County has the most individuals in poverty, and this is a huge step for the food bank in working towards our goal of getting food out to individuals.” Julio Alonso, Hoosier Hills executive director, said he hopes this program will help other local charities in a collective effort to combat hunger among the Monroe County senior citizen population. “We hope that this program will help supplement

the efforts of others like Area 10, Meals on Wheels, Community Kitchen and various food pantries to help ensure that these older people have access to adequate nutrition,” Alonso said. Area 10 Agency on Aging relishes the opportunity in assisting Hoosier Hills with the CSFP, said Laura Kray, nutrition manager at the Area 10 Agency on Aging. “We’re really excited about the program, and we will be working with the Hoosier Hills Food Bank to help identify seniors that might qualify for the program,” she said. “We have promotional information, and we will be distributing it to people we think will qualify or be interested in the program.” Hoosier Hills is seeking volunteers to assist in the laborious task of packing the boxes to distribute to the seniors, Steury said. “This program is 90 percent volunteer-run,” he said. “We have to pack 850 boxes a month and are in desperate need for volunteers during the summer. This program and volunteers are vital to the seniors being able to sustain their living.”

Bloomington Meadows puts on Hero for Zero 5k FROM IDS REPORTS

Bloomington Meadows Hospital was host to its second annual Hero for Zero 5k Friday. Put on with the help of the Monroe County Suicide Prevention Coalition and the National Action Alliance for Zero Suicide, the race aimed to spread the word about suicide prevention. It took place at Emmanuel Baptist Church’s 5k/10k track. More than 150 people were in attendance, and all proceeds went to suicide prevention services, according to a press release. The race was put on as a part of Mental Health month. People from across south-

ern Indiana attended. Some invested in the race, and others invested in the cause, according to a press release. John Kirts, a student at Eastern Greene High School, finished the race first, in 19 minutes and four seconds. Bloomington resident Pamela Faerber, who became an advocate after losing her son to suicide in 2011, spoke at the event. She stressed the importance of reaching out to those suffering from depression who may be vulnerable to suicidal thoughts. “Today is your day to be a rescue hero for suicide prevention,” Faerber said.

Friday, Lubovsky said he expected there would be more people at the festival through the weekend, when they didn’t have school or work. “By Sunday we’re hoping for 1,000 people,” he said. Dodds said he thought the festival was a huge success.

He said having a new facility in Bart Kaufman Field is a big plus to draw people in, and even though it was hot playing music in the sun, he would do it next year if given the opportunity. “The bigger it gets, the better,” Dodds said. “I love stuff like this.”

Senior Kelsie Ahbe and sophomore Sydney Clute both cleared a meet best of 4.20 meters Friday afternoon. It was a career best jump for Clute. “Those girls work together really well,” Helmer said. “When you have high-level athletes and in one event, one of the things that happen is they learn to work together, and when they work together they respond to one another’s successes.” It will be Ahbe’s third appearance in the NCAA Championships. Three more Hoosiers qualified on Saturday, which was the final day of the competition. Among them was senior shot putter Kyla Buckley, who threw herself into her fourth straight NCAA Championships. That kind of sustained success only occurs if a number of things are present in an athlete, Helmer said. “Number one, you have to be talented enough to be able to perform at this level, and that’s just the beginning point,” Helmer said. “You have to be willing to work,

and then you have to love to compete.” Buckley qualified with a mark of 16.98 meters, which was fourth best of the meet. Buckley finished ninth at the NCAA Indoor Championships earlier this year, in addition to winning the Big Ten titles in both the indoor and outdoor seasons. Helmer said he believes Buckley has the potential to compete for a national title. “I think she’s got that kind of a throw in her,” Helmer said. “Again, that’s a tall order. “That’s a new challenge, but we’ve seen her throw at that level, so the challenge for her is to throw at that level in what becomes a pretty

Eugene, Ore., is known as Track Town, USA, for this reason. Helmer said he is not encapsulated by the mythology of Hayward Field, and this event will be meaningful solely because it is the NCAA Championships. “In my mind this whole Oregon thing is overhyped and not as cool as everybody makes it out to be,” Helmer said. “It’s an NCAA meet, and for that reason it’s special for all these kids.”

Digital Citizens is dedicated to exposing pharmaceutical drug access to the public and has published several investigative reports on the issue of drugs and the Internet. One such report found that as YouTube videos with narcotics increased, so did the number of advertisements promoting drug orders online. A Google search for “buy drugs without a prescription” yielded more than 38,000 results, according to the report

published June 2013. The problem does not exist on just the Internet. In a Digital Citizens video report, titled “No Prescription, No Problem,” an adolescent male orders Percocet on the telephone without having the prescription. Despite telling the operator he did not have a prescription, he was still able to get the medication. The Zogby poll also found that 72 percent of respondents share prescription medications with friends. “The whole situation is really quite striking,” Benson said. “Prescription drugs are accessible through more avenues than ever.”

Computer hackers come to Indianapolis for contests Computer hacking is usually illegal. An exception was made this weekend. National Day of Civic Hacking occurred Saturday in 103 cities worldwide, including Indianapolis. It was the city’s first time participating. The goal was to encourage government transparency. The Speak Easy in Broad Ripple, Ind., was sold out to a crowd that participated in civic hacking. Fifteen teams were created to collaborate and compete in challenges that encouraged a more transparent, accessible government. “The event went fantastic,

we had over 150 sign up and over 15 teams submit apps toward civic challenges,” coorganizer Brian Norris said. These challenges given to participants were both local and nationwide schemes. “The challenges range from something an organization may need here in Indy to a national challenge, like with NASA,” said Matthew Kirby, an organizer from Indy Chamber. Coders and developers were brought in to teach others how to build apps and visualize public data in new ways. Indiana State Chief Information Officer Paul Baltzell attended, along with congresswoman Susan Brooks. < I n s e r t _ C o o l _ Te a m _

Winning teams took home a variety of prizes, from cash to a Speak Easy Membership. The event also had a nonmandatory raffle to fight hunger in Indiana. Prizes ranged from floor seats at a Fever game to an Apple TV. Organizers are looking to continue the event next year. “The feedback we have received was great, and we are looking to keep participating in this annual event,” Norris said. Angela Hawkins
