IU loses to Kent State in senior day game By Aiden Kantner | @AidenKantner


A sweater decorates a tree Oct. 6 across from the Monroe County Public Library. The tree sweaters around Bloomington are sponsored and crocheted by numerous individuals to help bring awareness to the Middle Way House’s Wrapped In Love initiative.

WRAPPED in LOVE Bloomington’s tree sweaters support Middle Way House By Mel Fronczek | @MelissaFronczek

A honeycomb with crocheted bees. Rainbow stripes with yarn tassels. An angel with sheer polyester for its dress. These are some of the 43 sweater designs decorating trees around town as part of Middle Way House’s Wrapped in Love project. “Wrapped in Love is a metaphor for what Middle Way House does for survivors,” said Katherine Devich, the project’s volunteer chair. Middle Way House offers a 24/7 crisis line, emergency shelter, transitional housing, legal advocacy and prevention education. For about the past eight years, the project has sought to spread messages of support for domestic violence survivors, Devich said. Businesses or individuals can sponsor a tree sweater beginning at $200, and volunteer artists will knit or cro-

chet one. When installed, all tree sweaters have Middle Way’s crisis line phone number on them. Christopher De Young, a Middle Way House board member, said each tree sweater is distinct. “Each of these sweaters really has its own story, and the artists put time and work into telling that story,” he said. “At a casual glance, you might not realize how much it means to someone.” Tree sweaters began going up mid-September, the beginning of most trees’ dormant seasons, and they’ll be taken down mid-March. Devich will inspect, clean and, if possible, store them to reuse next season. Devich, 60, is a Bloomington native, self-identified feminist and lover of fiber art. Devich said she started getting involved with Middle Way House about 20 years ago when she would donate used cell phones for domestic violence survivors to call 911 without need-

ing a phone plan. Devich said she got involved with the Wrapped in Love project about four years ago because she wanted to crochet. Devich remembers the first tree sweater she made, sponsored by Nick’s English Hut. Upon request, she crocheted the phrase “Peace, love and strombolis” into the sweater. “It was really fun, obviously, because I stayed with it,” she said. Devich said one of her favorite tree sweaters this year is in memory of Braylon Mosher, a two-month-old victim of domestic violence. The tree is located at Sixth Street and College Avenue. The sweater has pastel blue, yellow, pink and green stripes with the boy’s name and the months he was alive, May 2019 to July 2019. Above the sweater is a row of blue and yellow crocheted stars, which Devich said are like the stars in the sky. Devich said Braylon’s grandparents, who helped with the de-

sign, have something to remember their grandson by. “They’re really touched that sweater is hanging there where they can see a reminder of baby Braylon,” she said. Joanna Butler, 56, and Lesley Levin, 72, are part of Congregation Beth Shalom’s knitting group called Knit Witz. The group of about 20 meets weekly to knit or crochet together. Members worked all summer on their tree sweater for Wrapped in Love. Their tree is located in front of the Starbucks on Indiana Avenue. The Knit Witz group knitted hats, scarves and socks and attached them to their tree sweater. People can take the knitted items from the tree as needed. “It’s a giving sort of tree,” Butler said. Levin said the tree sweaters make an important statement in SEE WRAPPED, PAGE 4

IU field hockey closed out its homestand with a 5-1 defeat by Kent State University on Sunday. The Hoosiers have now lost four straight matches, all at home. Sunday was senior day for the Hoosiers. The home crowd cheered for seniors Kelsey Giese, Ciara Girouard, Sam Scire, Jessica Morford, Sheridan Weiss, Grace Sensenig and Andi Jackson as they took the field. The cheers from the crowd quickly turned to groans when the Hoosiers let in three goals in the first 10 minutes of the match, a trend with the team throughout the homestand. The Hoosiers responded with a goal of their own, when Giese found sophomore forward and IU’s leading scorer Hailey Couch for her 8th goal of the season. IU went into the second half with momentum and a chance to respond with a couple of goals. But much like the first half, Kent State came out attacking in the second, with sophomore forward Luisa Knapp adding a fourth goal. To add insult to injury the backbone of IU’s defense, junior goalkeeper Sachi Ananias, went down with an apparent head injury after diving for the save and hitting her head on the metal goal posts. IU head coach Kayla Bashore did not have an update after the game, and Ananias’s long-term status is unknown.  Sophomore goalkeeper Shelby Querry replaced Ananias, subbing in for the first time this season. She registered three saves in relief, and allowed a fifth goal early in the fourth quarter to junior forward Hallie BalaSEE KENT STATE, PAGE 4

IU Provost Lauren Robel appointed Robert Anderson the interim executive director at Radio/TV services and WFIU/WTIU On Sept. 23, days ahead of the retirement of Perry Metz. Anderson will remain at this post until a search committee, led by IU Vice President Brad Wheeler, finds a candidate to fill the position permanently. Anderson was the assistant general manager under Metz and has worked for IU Radio/TV services for more than 10 years. Before Anderson came to IU, he worked for Jack Morton Worldwide in New York City for more than 10 years. Under Metz, Anderson was the assistant general manager of content and production. He was responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of three departments at Radio/ TV services including corporate development, production and digital. He was in this position for 11 years. “We are first and foremost a service unit for IU at large,” Anderson said. Anderson said his favorite part of the job so far is the variety of content and programming that IU Radio/TV services works on every day. WFIU/WTIU is dedicated to serving the people of south-central Indiana and those at IU as well, he said.  The top priority at WFIU/WTIU, Anderson said, is to serve the readers, listeners, viewers and university constituents. Anderson said he wishes to continue to meet the expectations that those before him have set.  “It is important for me to continue this good work and support my colleagues and their various projects and enterprises,” Anderson said. 



IU hangs on to beat Minnesota at home Sunday 1-0 By Will Trubshaw | @Willtrubs

On a cloudy day in Bloomington on Sunday, IU women’s soccer shined on the pitch, picking up its third straight shutout and the second consecutive Big Ten win. A first half goal by senior midfielder Chandra Davidson gave the Hoosiers a lead they wouldn't lose, handing Minnesota its fourth conference loss in six matches. Both of the Hoosiers' wins against Big Ten opponents have come by narrow 1-0 margins, but for IU head coach Erwin van Bennekom, that’s just fine. “We know that we have our defensive shape and defensive organization," van Bennekom said. "If we go 1-nil up, teams will have a hard time getting back in the game." Junior midfielder Melanie Forbes sent a cross through the penalty box for Davidson, but the pass was intercepted by a Gopher defender. Six minutes later, Davidson had a free run at the goal, but before she could settle a pass down, Minnesota’s junior goalie Maddie Nielsen came out to cover the ball. In the 30th minute, sophomore defender Oliwia Wos sent a free kick from outside the penalty box directly on goal. It would be a precursor of things to come, when

not six minutes later she sent a pass from the Hoosiers side of the center circle into the box for Davidson. Davidson played the pass on a bounce and sent it past a lunging keeper for the Hoosiers' first goal. It was the fourth on the season for Davidson and also her first in Big Ten play.

“Great ball from Oliwia," van Bennekom said. "We’ve been talking about that pass and that run so many times. Really happy for Channy to score that goal. I think she needed that, she’s been working so hard and getting so close.” With the lead at half, IU was able to focus in on its defensive approach even more in the sec-

Indiana families struggle with diaper need By Claire Peters | @claire_peterss


The 36th annual Hoosier Hills Food Bank Book Fair features a kids section with board games. The book fair runs Oct. 3-8 at Monroe County Fairgrounds.

Hoosier Hills Food Bank kicks off 36th annual book fair By Mel Fronczek | @MelissaFronczek

Soft rock music played throughout the west community building of the Monroe County Fairgrounds while about 20 shoppers examined books, records, CDs and DVDs arranged neatly on tables. Thursday was the opening day of the six-day Hoosier Hills Food Bank’s community book fair. This is the 36th year of the book fair. Earlier this morning, there had been a line out the door, said Julio Alonso, executive director of the food bank. Alonso said the book fair is the second-largest fundraiser for the nonprofit. It earned between $35,000 and $40,000 from last year’s book fair. Hoosier Hills Food Bank distributes food to 100 different agencies in six nearby counties. Many of these agencies are food pantries, kitchens and shelters. Alonso said the food bank relies entirely on donations and volunteers. “Our primary goal is to make sure no one goes hungry in our six-county region,” he said. Alonso said between about 3,000 and 4,000 people come to the book fair each year. He said people even come from out of state.

He said he met people who had come from St. Louis and Ohio earlier that day. Jeannette and David Hewins, both 75, have volunteered at the book fair for about 10 years. Mr. Hewins said he helped load about 45 boxes of books into a Lafayette, Indiana, man’s car earlier. “They come a long way because they know it’s a good book sale,” Jeannette Hewins said. Heather Ummel, 43, is a book club member, elementary school assistant principal and literature teacher. She stood at a table in the children’s section, deciding between books. Her picks went into a red wagon that was almost full. Its contents included “The Juniper Tree and Other Tales from Grimm,” “Reptiles do the Strangest Things” and “Escape! The Story of the Great Houdini.” “My life is a great deal about books,” Ummel said. She said she comes to the book fair every year to look for children’s books for her six kids ages 3 to 17. Ummel said she already has a big collection of children’s books at home, and when she gets home with her full wagon, she’ll need to figure out where to put her new books. “There’s no better way to

build your library,” Ummel said. Past the Halloweenthemed section for horror, true crime and science fiction books, Ken Harker, 78, browsed the Better Books section of the sale, which features collectibles and rare or signed copies of books. Harker said he has been coming to the book fair for at least the past 10 years. As a corporate attorney, he said he didn’t always have much time for reading, but he does now that he’s retired. “It gives me a chance to catch up on all the reading I didn’t get done when I was younger,” Harker said. He said he reads a lot of different genres, but he especially likes fiction, history and political science. Harker said he wasn’t looking for anything in particular but ended up finding a copy of “Alice in Wonderland” with gold edges for his granddaughter. When Jeannette and David Hewins’ have time to shop around the sale, they said they both want to check out the mystery books. David Hewins said he wanted to check the crafting books for any on woodworking. Alonso said there are over 100,000 items at the sale. Besides books, there

are comics, posters, stamps and coins, puzzles, board games and sports trading cards. “Whatever your interests might be, you’re going to find something out here,” Alonso said. Alonso said before the book fair is a year of collecting and sorting books and other items. Most of the items for the book fair are donated from individuals, libraries or estates of people who have passed away. Most items are priced under $3. Cash, debit and credit are accepted. Light snacks and beverages are available, and there will also be various food trucks each day except the last. The book fair will run through Tuesday. Friday is Crafts Day, where books in the crafts section are buy one, get one free. Saturday is Farm, Friends & Family Day, where the first 50 children will receive a free copy of “Charlotte’s Web.” Sunday is Heroes Day, complete with a special appearance of fire trucks and firefighters. Monday, all items will be half-price. Tuesday is Bag It Day, in which a bag worth of any items will be $5. “We’d like to see many as many people come out as possible because there’s some great stuff here,“ Alonso said.

IUSG town hall talks equity, inclusion By Madison Smalstig | @madi_smals

IU Student Government executive branch members led the first IUSG town hall meeting of this semester Thursday. The focus of this meeting was equity and inclusion on campus. The meeting was led by students Maiya Cook and Eliza Craig, IUSG directors of equity and inclusion. Cook and Craig brought up four key issues straining equity and inclusion at IU and some possible policies that could be made to address these problems.  These four issues were segregation between certain social groups on campus, access to or lack of knowledge regarding where to access kosher or halal options on campus, international student troubles with immersion and lack of awareness or acceptance regarding varying gender identities and sexualities. Looking at the kosher and halal food issue on campus, Cook pointed out that there are a lack of dining options for students who have dietary restrictions due to faith. In order to address this issue, Residential Programs and Services is working to create a full kosher kitchen, which would be run by the Helene G. Simon Hillel center, Cook said. When preparing kosher foods, there cannot be crosscontamination of dairy and meat, and there cannot be any

pork. “It’s important to have a kosher kitchen because RPS clearly serves pork, and they clearly serve cheese or dairy and meat  in the same kitchen,” Cook said.  Craig also said there is a lack of awareness regarding where to obtain these foods on campus.  Even though Eastern Harvest, located in Wright dining hall, has been providing halal options since 2017, many Muslims, including those living at Wright, do not know these options are provided, Cook said. In order to address this issue, Cook and Craig are working to more clearly advertise these halal options and also work on adding the education of what halal and kosher options are to RPS dining training.  According to Cook, RPS

employees are not given training on the basis of what kosher and halal is. “When students come to them and say, ‘Does this meet this requirement?’ one day they might say yes and the next they might say no,” Craig said. “So it’s about talking about how we can change RPS training to make sure that’s in the conversation.”  Following the discussion regarding their focuses and initiatives, Craig and Cook opened the floor for comments. Other executive branch members not leading the meeting and, a newlyelected legislative representative and other IU students raised their hands and participated in the conversation.  IUSG off-campus housing representative Cassiday Moriarity suggested a survey passed out at every first

class each semester to give students the opportunity to write down anything students feel their professors need to know, such as their pronouns or that English is not their first language. This would help fix some of the issues addressed by Cook and Craig pertaining to international and gender queer students. Sophomore Lexi Mergell talked about a positive experience she had in the classroom in which the instructor initiated the conversation regarding gender identity and pronouns. This removed the awkwardness and allowed her and other students to open up and discuss their gender identity and other similar topics, Mergell said. “Just literally talking about it and opening up has made such a difference,” Mergell said.

Pregnant women are warned about hormonal fluctuations, postpartum depression and a lack of sleep, but the high cost of necessary items isn’t always included in those discussions. Families with infants across Indiana are struggling to meet the high cost of diapers for their children, which are taxed as a luxury item.  “In the studies that have been done, it’s an issue across all income levels, but the poorest ones are the most impacted group,” said Rachael Suskovich, the founder and executive director of Indiana Diaper Bank, a non-profit charity in Indianapolis that provides diapers for families.  In a blog post she wrote for the Indiana Institute for Working Families, Suskovich said almost half of food bank clients reported they delayed changing their child’s diaper to make their supply last longer, which could lead to irritation and infection.  This issue is prevalent in Bloomington. Suskovich said around one-third of families with young children are struggling to cover the cost.  But the issue has been gaining traction with public

policy. “A lot on representatives, both local and national are making strides toward change to help families,” Suskovich said. “We have done a good job of helping food insecurity and establishing food banks, and now it’s time to focus on other necessary items.” Suskovich said only 15 out of 50 states are putting funding toward helping solve diaper need and have abolished the taxes on diapers, deeming it a necessary good.  “Diapers are taxed as a luxury item, so that is why the poorest of the poor are the most affected,” Suskovich said. “The tax revenue is millions and billions dollars of taxes every year.” She said many states don’t want to give up that revenue and are wary of abolishing the tax. Other states who have gotten rid of it have increased taxes for liquor and non-necessity items to make up for it.  “Even though we are not one of the 15 out of 50 states, Indiana has been one that has legislation going up for a hearing every year, but unfortunately it has gotten denied every year,” Suskovich said. “When it comes to public policy, our leaders are active on this issue.” SEE DIAPER, PAGE 3

Cybersecurity Center receives $12.5M donation By Kyra Miller | @kyra_ky94

The National Science Foundation has awarded IU-led Cybersecurity Center of Excellence a $12.5 million renewal grant. The Trusted CI Cybersecurity Center of Excellence and the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research at IU are the face of cybersecurity research for the NSF, according to a university press release. This is the third donation Trusted CI has received from the NSF since their inception at IU in 2013.  Trusted CI’s mission is to work directly with the scientific community to take on projects and cybersecurityrelated challenges, said Von Welch, director and principal investigator of Trusted CI and director of the IU Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research. The NSF awards research grants to more than 10,000 projects every year. Currently, Trusted CI is working with more than 250 projects in a wide array of scientific fields and hopes to expand that base in the coming years, Welch said.  “Scientific cyberinfrastructure continues to be negatively impacted by cybercrime and other cyberattacks,” Welch said. “Our role is to lead the adoption of a comprehensive cybersecurity framework to support the NSF-funded research and open science.”  Cyberinfrastructure is a term used by the NSF and other research funders to

describe research environments that support advanced data mining, inquisition, storage and other computing and information processing services, according to the IU Knowledge Base. Manish Parashar, NSF director of the Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, said the project is key to making cyberinfrastructure more trustworthy. “Trustworthiness is at the heart of scientific discovery and reproducibility,” Parashar said. “As a result, cyberinfrastructure enabling scientific research and discovery must be trustworthy.” Trusted CI has major plans moving forward, Welch said. Starting in 2020, it will launch a training program to bring their protocols to regions across the country. Trusted CI will train a wide variety of people in cybersecurity skills in order to protect national research projects, Welch said. As well as training others to help keep scientific research secure, Welch said Trusted CI is planning monthly webinars and publications about cybersecurity. Trusted CI also organizes the Cybersecurity Summit, where hundreds of members of the cybersecurity community will come to IU to share their experiences and network with others.  “We want to maintain scientific productivity, because all this research is very important, but cybersecurity is just as important,” Welch said.

City declares annual Indigenous Peoples Day By Mel Fronczek | @MelissaFronczek

The Bloomington City Council voted Wednesday night in an 8-0 vote to declare every second Monday of October as Indigenous Peoples Day in Bloomington. Mayor John Hamilton proclaimed Oct. 8, 2018, as Indigenous Peoples Day, but Resolution 19-17 officially puts the holiday on the city calendar every year. The second Monday of October is recognized as Columbus Day in some places in the United States. Before the resolution passed, the city didn’t celebrate Columbus Day anyway, said council member Isabel PiedmontSmith. She and council members Allison Chopra and Dorothy Granger sponsored the resolution. “It doesn’t make sense to me to celebrate the conquering of peoples, a whole nation,” Granger said. Caleb King is an IU senior studying neuroscience and the founder and president of the IU Native American Student Association. He is Supgpiaq and is part of the Alaskan indigenous Seldovia Village Tribe. King said his Native heritage has always been a large part of his identity. He moved to Indiana for his sophomore year of high school. He said living in Indiana has been difficult because his identity isn’t as acknowledged here. “I tell someone I’m Native, and they’re like, ‘Oh, that’s cool. Like Pocahontas, right?’” King said. “And then they move on, and it glosses over how important it is to me.” At the meeting Wednesday night, King quoted a line from the city’s website: “Whether you come for school, business, pleasure or you would like to make Bloomington your home, you are welcome in Bloomington.” Piedmont-Smith said the cultures that predated European settlers are often overlooked. She said this is especially true in Indiana. “I mean, the state is called

Indiana, land of the Indians, and yet we chased most of them out,” she said. “We really disrespected them as we started settling this country.” Piedmont-Smith, who grew up in Bloomington, said part of the issue is Native American history isn’t always taught correctly or thoroughly enough in many schools. She said she learned about the removal of Native Americans from their land, such as the Trail of Tears, as progressing society. “It was just kind of like, ‘Oh, there was this little road bump where all these people died, and they had to move to Oklahoma,’” she said. “There was no recognition that this was a terrible thing to do to people.” Piedmont-Smith said she didn’t realize the extent of the atrocities until her freshman year of college when she read “A People’s History of the United States” by How-

ard Zinn. In the first chapter of the book, Piedmont-Smith said she learned about the disease, enslavement and rape Christopher Columbus and European colonists imposed on Native people. “I love my country, but we have some shameful parts of our history,” she said at the city council meeting. Piedmont-Smith was a history teacher at Bloomington High School South during the fall semester of 1995. She said on Columbus Day, she made her students read the opening of Zinn’s book. “I think that’s one of the reasons why I didn’t last long teaching,” she said with a laugh. During King’s junior year of high school, he watched a video in history class of Native Americans doing a ceremonial dance to bring buffalo back after colonizers killed them off, knowing buffaloes were Native peoples’

main source of food. King said he wanted to cry seeing the video because he recognized the importance of the ceremony, but his classmates laughed at it. “To me, that was their last effort to ask the Creator to save them,” he said. “If that had been Jesus walking with a cross on his back, if that had been people in a church praying for food, no one would have laughed.” King said if his classmates would have understood the culture more, they wouldn’t have found the video funny. “I don’t blame them because the education system failed them,” he said. Keisha Beyal is an enrolled member of the Navajo Nation and a teacher in the Monroe County Community School Corporation.

IU studying probation violations By Claire Peters | @claire_peterss

IU is working with the Monroe County Circuit Court Probation Department to decrease the number of people sent to jail over probation violations as part of a nationwide study conducted to reduce mass incarceration. When people are on probation, if they break any of the rules, such as not showing up for appointments, they are sent to prison. Troy Hatfield, the Deputy Chief Probation Officer for Monroe County said they want to reduce the number of people on probation being sent to jail, and to do that they will need to create strategies based on their research.  IU is collaborating with Monroe County to analyze instances where people on probation were sent to jail to create solutions for reducing incarceration rates.  Hatfield said they’re going to look at data from 2014 to 2018 and pinpoint the ways that people on probation violated the guidelines and were sent to jail.  Arnold Ventures, a research philanthropy group, is funding the study. It is being conducted by the City University of New York Institute

for State and Local Governance and is taking place in 10 cities across the United States.   “A huge number of people are in community supervision,” said CUNY senior research associate Victoria Lawson. “It’s ballooned in the past decade.” It’s up to 2% of the population, Lawson said. But Bloomington is well below the national average of revocation rates, Hatfield said. The city is at a 15% revocation rate, with the national average around 24-33%.  “The idea is that each of these 10 places is going to publish a research report and

come up with a strategy for reducing revocations,” Lawson said. “We want them to create a proposal based on their own situation.” Although Monroe County has taken steps to reduce incarceration numbers, the results have been mixed, said IU lead researcher Dr. Miriam Northcutt Bohmert. “The county has been trying to reduce mass incarceration by putting them on probation instead,” Bohmert said. “We have a lot of people on probation, which is costly, and people are failing.”  She said many people run into issues with the financial obligations, such as paying

probationary fees and participating in urine tests. Sometimes they end up committing other crimes while on probation, sending them to jail. Bohmert said Bloomington is a great place for this study to be conducted because of the computer system Monroe County uses, which has a large amount of detailed information.  “We’re looking at people who failed, why some people have failed and succeeded, and can we create those successful conditions,” Bohmert said. “It allows to do this data analysis we want to do and answer these questions.”

aspects were lacking. Beyal said she thinks this resolution will have an influence on students. “It will implicitly and explicitly affect them,” she said. Multiple cities throughout the country, such as Seattle, Los Angeles, Denver, Phoenix and San Francisco, have renamed Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples Day, according to CNN. Berkeley, California, was the first city to adopt Indigenous Peoples Day in 1992. Entire states such as Minnesota, Alaska, Vermont, Oregon, Hawaii and South Dakota have renamed Columbus Day. Bloomington is the first city in Indiana to recognize Indigenous Peoples Day. The resolution will help raise awareness that Native people still exist, King said. He also said it will help future Native IU students and Bloomington residents feel


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 Communities in Indiana are taking action as well, such as All-Options Pregnancy Resource Center. The center has the Hoosier Diaper program, which provides disposable and cloth diapers to women in the community. Located in Bloomington, the center serves the city and Monroe County. The diaper program has been operating since May 2015 and has had a very high demand.  “When we started we were absolutely flooded,” said Jess McCanse, the center manager at All-Options. “As many as we are helping, we still have about 100 families on our waiting list.” They try to make getting help very straightforward for the families.  “We try to keep the barriers as low as possible,” McCanse said. “If they’re on WIC, we don’t require them to provide proof of that. We’re not coming from a place of judgement – if they’ve walked through the door that’s a proof of their need.” The center purchases most of its diapers with grants and donation funds, but it also receives diapers from community donations as well. There are many options to get involved, such

more acknowledged. Agnes Woodward wore a black shirt that said “Phenomenally Indigenous” to the city council meeting. Woodward, who is part of the Kawacatoose First Nations band, said the resolution was meaningful to her. “It means a lot as a mother, growing up not seeing history as we know it in our classrooms, in the media, not seeing our experiences in places where it really matters,” she said. “And for my children to have the opportunity to live in a city that acknowledges them and their history, it means a lot to me.” At the meeting, Nicky Belle, director of the IU First Nations Educational and Cultural Center, said he was excited the resolution will be sent to other organizations, including IU, Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana, the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce and the Monroe County Community School Corporation. “Having these recommendations, particularly coming from the city, serves as a great, great opportunity to lead that way and to help show the colleges and universities and MCCSC schools how really important work this is,” he said. Piedmont-Smith said the city will officially recognize the holiday publicly starting next year. Granger said she hopes the city will collaborate with the First Nations Educational and Cultural Center and the Native American Student Association in the future. The First Nations Educational and Cultural Center will be celebrating Indigenous People’s Day on the evening of Oct. 14, according to the event’s Facebook page. “This resolution will mean a lot to all indigenous students who are here now, future generations that we will never see come here, as well as people who are not indigenous who will learn about the culture that still exists that they may not know is still here,” King said at the city council meeting. as sponsoring a family in need for a month. “When we spent money on diapers it would make us stretch where we had to cut another cost,” said Jessica Shipley, a client of the Hoosier Diaper Program who is currently supporting three children. “Since I’ve had help, I’ve been able to get them more clothes and shoes.” Samantha Starks, another client, stressed the cost both with and without the program.  “We still spend a good $75-150 a month on diapers, even with the program,” Starks said. “Without it it’s at least $200 a month, and that’s only because one of the kids has allergies.”  Starks said if the children need a specific brand for their allergies, All-Options accommodates their requests.  “Diapers are just expensive, and I just appreciate everything they’ve done for us,” Starks said. “They want to see people succeed.” According to Suskovich and McCanse, the best way for the community to help is to spread awareness and donate to local centers. “Because it is an overlooked need, we need to create that awareness,” Suskovich said. “That will be so important to make a change.”

Five different players scored for the Golden Flashes. Bashore was adamant that the slow starts are a problem that needs to be alleviated. “We really need to step up in the first couple of minutes and keep the ball out of the circle like we did the rest of the match,” Bashore said. “We can’t dig ourselves into a hole like that and expect to win against anyone.” The Hoosiers, now at 4-7 on the year, have two road matches next week against Rutgers and Maryland as they race towards the end of their regular season.

Butler said helping create the tree sweater was a way to give back to Middle Way and raise awareness about domestic violence. “It’s opening a door to a conversation,” she said.

She said she personally removed many pink breast cancer awareness ribbons Zeta Tau Alpha sorority members have been passing out from trees. “One tree was just totally, entirely covered with them, like hundreds of them,” Hollinden said.

Devich said it’s a monthslong process of cooperating with the city and deciding which trees Middle Way can install tree sweaters on. Hollinden said the Wrapped in Love project has raised $20,000 from sponsorships. This money will support the organization’s operations. Hollinden said after she left the kick-off ceremony Friday, she came back to the shelter family room and shared knitting supplies with two mothers and a young girl. “It was really nice they got to have the treat of getting all this new yarn for themselves and their own projects and feeling part of Wrapped in Love themselves,” she said.

Nuestras Raíces event moves students to tears By Claudia Gonzalez-Diaz

Gathered in a circle and sitting on couches, cushioned chairs and bean bags, IU undergraduate and graduate students alike shared their personal experiences as members of the Latinx community. This event, Nuestras Raíces, is hosted annually at La Casa Latino Culture Center in partnership with the Latino Graduate Student Association. Nuestras Raíces is held in commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Nuestras Raíces provides a safe space for students to share stories, poems, descriptions of objects and jokes that connect them to their roots. Attendees came from different areas in the Midwest, Texas, New York, California, Mexico, Venezuela, Puerto Rico and eastern Europe. LGSA executive board members Anna Acosta Russian and Yael Rosenstock both shared family narratives. Acosta Russian explained the difficulty of loving a family member deeply while also recognizing the tension that complicates a linear story of familial love. She brought with her a wind-up toy box decorated with images of Winnie the Pooh given to her by her grandpa. Acosta Russian had filled it with artifacts from his work, her childhood and other small things he had given to

her years ago. Rosenstock, a person of Jewish and Puerto Rican descent, also explained her relationship to her large family that spans across Puerto Rico. “The family is not about blood; the family is about love,” Rosenstock said. “My mother has probably about 80-100 first cousins.”

As the sun set, more stories were told. Each was followed by a request to pass along the tissue box. Junior Wendy Ruíz was in the middle of explaining the story of how her parents met, but interrupted herself, too emotional to speak. “This is a happy story,” Ruíz said. “I don’t know why

I’m sad.” La Casa director Lillian Casillas remembers with admiration the story of her grandmother who lived in Mexico. Her grandmother, a woman of Catholic faith, would regularly bring homeless people to her house for the night. “She was famous for help-

ing people in her community,” Casillas said. “She brought them into her space and family.” Casillas also says that this event, along with many others hosted by La Casa, helps to establish traditions among IU students, Latinx or not, that help to strengthen their identity and connection to other

individuals on campus. Freshman Sol Estrada also shared her stories and explained why attending events at La Casa like these are meaningful to her. “It was exactly what I needed,” Estrada said. “It feels like going to my grandma’s house. It’s a home away from home.”

‘Rocky Horror’ to make 14th Concerts worth attending in appearance in Bloomington Bloomington this October By Ally Melnik

By Grace Abushalback

The cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” returns Oct. 26 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. There will be two separate showings, one at 8 p.m. and one at midnight. The 8 p.m. showing will cost $15 in advance, whereas the midnight showing will cost $20. Both prices will increase by $5 when purchased at the door. Prop bags will cost $5 to further the “Rocky Horror” experience with audience participation. This is the Buskirk-Chumley’s 14th annual screening of “Rocky Horror,” and proceeds from the event will support Cardinal Stage’s IU Credit Union Education Initiative. Attendees should plan on arriving a half hour early to view or participate in the costume contest. By paying $5, people can enter the contest dressed as their favorite “Rocky Horror” character

As fall begins, Bloomington is hosting new concerts ranging from legendary artists to up-and-coming EP creators with a loyal following. This month boasts of Bob Dylan and his band, Trampled by Turtles, Yoke Lore and Gryffin.


“Rocky Horror Picture Show” was released in 1975. The show returns Oct. 26 to the Buskirk-Chumley Theater and will have two separate showings, one at 8 p.m. and one at midnight.

in hopes of winning prizes. The contest will be hosted by drag queen Oriana Peron. Additionally, Peron will be conducting the “divirginization” ritual, where firsttime attendees will be invited onto the stage to participate in the unusual, yet fun, initiation ceremony. “The Rocky Horror Pic-

ture Show” is a combination of classic science-fiction cliches into a jazz-infused musical. Staring Tim Curry as Dr. Frank N. Furter, this 1975 film is a Halloween classic ready to thrill you, chill you and fulfill you. Tickets can be purchased at the Buskirk-Chumley box office or online.

Bob Dylan and his band After selling out their show in 2017, Bob Dylan and his band will be returning at 8 p.m Oct. 27 in the IU Auditorium with tickets starting at $59.50 plus fees. Dylan is a musician and pop culture icon who has won 10 Grammys, an Academy award and a Golden Globe award, as well as the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Nobel Prize for Literature. Known for poetic, meaningful songs involving social commentary, Dylan sparked a revolution in the 1960s with

him being one of the first musicians to have an active voice in terms of ethical issues in society. Some of his critically acclaimed hits include “Like a Rolling Stone,” “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” and “All Along the Watchtower.” Trampled by Turtles Trampled by Turtles is on tour and making a stop at 8 p.m Oct. 26 at the Bluebird with tickets priced at $30. The band is a folk quintet hailing from Duluth, Minnesota. The five-member band does not shy away from social commentary, catchy hooks and energized harmonies, incorporating all three into its sound. Its most recent album, “Palomino,” was on the bluegrass charts and is rock infused, with one of its inspirations being Bob Dylan. Yoke Lore Yoke Lore is set to perform at 8 p.m Oct. 20 at the Bishop with tickets priced at

$12. Yoke Lore, whose real name is Adrian Galvin, is a New York-based musician. His stage name can be broken down to mean togetherness and stories. He has played for Yellerkin and Walk the Moon. His repertoire of EPs have gained him a steady following since his first EP, “Far Shore,” was released in 2016. He has been touring for the past three years and played festivals worldwide. Gryffin Gryffin, who calls himself a melodic house DJ, will be performing at 9 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Bluebird on his GRAVITY II TOUR. Tickets for the event are $25. As the tour name alludes, there will be cosmic and elaborate lights just as one would picture of a dreamy space. The energy that he and his band bring will be eclectic with remixes of songs such as Desire’s “Years & Years.”

October’s First Thursdays Festival showcases an African American dance group By Grace Abushalback

The First Thursdays Festival took place from 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 3 in the Fine Arts Plaza and has been running for the past three years at IU. It takes place on a monthly basis, weather permitting. “The talent at this school

seriously blows me away,” said Hannah Crane, the events and communications specialist for the African American Arts Institute. Crane has been working with the AAAI at IU for the past two years. Crane was one of the people to implement this celebratory amalgamation of the arts since she herself

had wished there was more diversity than CultureFest, which takes place at the beginning of the year. “It really celebrates the diversity at IU-Bloomington,” Crane said. “You see all types of people here, all types of creative expression, and I think it really is just a celebration of what makes IU special and our commu-

nity special.” Colors were abundantly littered throughout the festival, which was especially apparent in the outfits of the extroverted and jovial dance ensemble African American Dance Company. Crane was once a member of the group while she was a journalism undergrad at IU and now manages it.

Any type of person willing to learn can join the group and appreciate the customary, cultural dance traditions and practices they teach. The director of the group, professor Stafford C. Berry Jr., teaches in IU’s Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance and has experience in musical theater and

dancing. These aspects were infused into the group’s performance at the First Thursdays Festival. “It is such a wonderful day, and we hope that you take this little bit of joy, this little bit of inspiration, these rhythms right here, the dancing that you experienced today and share it with somebody,” Berry said.

Freshman Trayce Jackson-Davis goes up for a celebratory dunk after winning the dunking contest Oct. 5 in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. In honor of the Hoosier Hysteria special guest, Jackson-Davis wore former IU player Calbert Cheaney’s old jersey for the dunk.

Calbert Cheaney honored in return to Assembly Hall By Matt Cohen | @Matt_Cohen_

Trayce Jackson-Davis asked for one more dunk. He had just come from the corner in front of the bench, running toward the basket and leaping from near the restricted area. As he rose toward the basket, the forward swung the ball between his legs and slammed it back with his left hand as he soared past the rim. His dunk received nines and a 10 from the judges’ panel, and as he was named the winner of the dunk contest, he asked for one more, a victory lap. Jackson-Davis walked toward the judges’ panel at mid-court, and stood in front of Hoosier-great Calbert Cheaney, one of the three judges. He pulled out an IU jersey with a No. 40, Cheaney’s number, and put it on top of his own No. 4 uniform. The Assembly Hall crowd gave a standing ovation as the freshman, not yet born when Cheaney played at IU, honored the record-setting Hoosier. With the crowd on its feet, Jackson-Davis picked up the ball at his feet and dribbled down the lane. He jumped as he stepped past the “B1G” logo, and finished a twohanded reverse slam, a dunk alluding to Cheaney’s own career, where he brought crowds to their feet with the same dunk. Cheaney, the Big Ten’s alltime leading scorer, returned to Assembly Hall as he was honored during Hoosier Hys-

teria. He was given a chance to come out on stage, for fans that rooted for him years ago and those like Jackson-Davis who weren’t alive to see him. Cheaney was given one more ovation by a Hoosier crowd. “Showing support for the program, it never gets old,” Cheaney said. “I’ve been removed from Indiana basketball in terms of graduation for 25, 26 years. But I always want to come back because the program is very important to me. I just want to help out any way I can.” IU head coach Archie Miller introduced Cheaney to the crowd before he walked out. He barely needed an introduction. As soon as Miller began to talk about Cheaney, before even mentioning his name, the crowd began its applause. As Cheaney walked out the stage, the instant he ap-

peared from beyond the screen set below IU’s national championship banners, the crowd immediately rose in a standing ovation. It cheered for a man who scored like no player in the Big Ten had before, nor since. Cheaney finished his career with 2,613 points. He said records are meant to be broken, but in an age with so many players leaving school before they graduate, he doesn’t see his record falling soon. Before Cheaney took the stage, Miller said this year’s team had the potential to be special during his speech to the crowd. It was a message Cheaney backed up, showing his support toward his program. “I’m 100% behind Archie and what he’s doing with this SEE MEN, PAGE 8

IU women’s basketball team has next step in mind By Will Trubshaw | @Willtrubs

Last season raised the question of how the Hoosiers would fare with seniors Tyra Buss and Amanda Cahill graduated and a young but battled tested core. Coming off a Women's National Invite Tournament title, the Hoosiers earned an NCAA tournament berth, falling to the University of Oregon in the second round. But now with four returning starters and 10 returners overall, plus six freshman introduced to the fold, the question for the 2019-20 Hoosiers is just how far can they go. On Saturday at Assembly Hall for Hoosier Hysteria, head coach Teri Moren made it clear that ahead of

her sixth season at the helm, the Hoosiers would not get complacent. “When I think back to the few trips we’ve made to the NCAA Tournament, the banner that hangs up there, the NIT championship, I’m really proud of the things that we’ve been able to accomplish to this point,” Moren said. “But I’ve got to be honest, we still have more to do. We still have more to do, and we have players to do it with.” As the team took the floor during introductions, complete with pyrotechnics and a massive LED board behind them, NBA All-Star game style, you could sense an air of confidence about them. The swagger was aided by the  roars that erupted

from the crowd as the likes of redshirt junior guard Ali Patberg and senior forward Brenna Wise walked toward center court, not to mention the equal reactions for junior guards Jaelynn Penn and Bendu Yeaney. The Hoosiers' four starters will be the linchpin for success, especially if they can rely on the three-point shooting of Penn and Patberg, who faced off in the championship round of the three- point contest Yeaney, who suffered a ruptured Achilles last season, was free of any walking boots and looking spry as she walked down the platform onto the floor.

Hysterically bored: Hoosier Hysteria is a reminder of Indiana’s love of basketball Caleb Coffman is a junior in sports media.

The fact IU basketball can fill up Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall by having a DJ, pyrotechnics and some skill competitions is all the proof you need to show how much Indiana loves its basketball. Hoosier Hysteria is a show and a boring one at that. The event feeds off how crazed people in Indiana are for IU basketball. There is no reason most of the 17,222 seats in Assembly Hall should be filled for this type of event. The most exciting part of the whole event is the player introductions, and IU wasn’t even able to get that part right Saturday. During the most anticipated part of the event, the men’s basketball introduc-

tions, the crew in Assembly Hall got a little excited with the fire and smoke buttons and set off the fire alarm.

Even with the alarms going off, most people remained in their seats because they weren’t going to miss any

IU basketball — and because there was clearly no real danger. I don’t know if it’s funny or sad, but the five

minutes of confusion when the fire alarms were going off and the players were standing on the court not knowing what to do was the most memorable moment of the whole afternoon. Sure, the competitions are mildly entertaining to watch, but even the players didn’t show any energy or do anything to create excitement. Sophomore Damezi Anderson looked like he was sleep-walking on the court during the three-point competition. I had to ask two people to remind me who won the skills competition — it was juniors Joey Brunk and Ali Patberg if you were wondering — and the only play that stood out in the scrimmage was a turnaround jumper from redshirt-freshman Jerome Hunter, who missed all of last year with a leg in-

jury. In two weeks, almost nobody will remember anything that happened at this year’s Hoosier Hysteria besides the fire alarm going off and maybe that freshman Trayce Jackson-Davis won the dunk contest. It’s not like this was just a down year for Hoosier Hysteria. This was my third year going to the event, and it was probably the most exciting one I’ve been to. The DJ was actually a nice touch, having a giant video screen and pyrotechnics for the players to walk through was cool, but the whole event still fell flat. Yet Assembly Hall is filled year after year just to see the spectacle that is IU basketball. I guess Hysteria is the right word.

basketball program,” Cheaney said to the crowd, garnering yet another cheer. Cheaney believes Miller, in the third year of his tenure, will be able to start accomplishing the things expected of him in Bloomington. Cheaney said as Miller continues to add his own players and develop them the way he needs, the team can take that next step. “I think he’s done a good job to his point, and hopefully this season will be an indicator of that,” Cheaney said. Cheaney said he likes what Miller has done thus far and is seeing that development take place at IU. Cheaney is a self-proclaimed development guy. Since the end of his professional career, Cheaney has been coaching, working to develop players himself. He’s currently working with the College Park Skyhawks, a G-League affiliate of the Atlanta Hawks, located in College Park, Georgia. The franchise recently relocated to Georgia after previously

being known as the Erie Bayhawks of Erie, Pennsylvania. Cheaney was a coach with the Bayhawks and stayed on during the move.

“But I always want to come back because the program is very important to me. I just want to help out any way I can.” Calbert Cheaney, former IU basketball player

Cheaney arrived in Bloomington on Friday and turns around to leave Sunday. His weekend is short in his return, but it was long enough to give the fans and players alike a chance to meet a legend. He asked for his own theme song after he walked out on stage. He came back just barely behind the screens and returned to the sound of DJ Khaled's' “All I Do is Win.” It was fitting. That’s all he ever did with IU, and that's all he wants to see the program he stands by do now.

Junior guard Keyanna Warthen and freshman forward, Jorie Allen, the reigning Ms. Basketball in Indiana, got to show out in the skills competition as well, reminding fans how deep this team will be. The Hoosiers are expected to do more winning than losing this season, but Moren reminded the Hoosier Hysteria crowd that success doesn't come easy. “What we do is incredibly difficult." Moren said. "Winning is hard, trust me. But we’ve got the players. We love Indiana, we love Indiana basketball,” Moren reminded the crowd that its support throughout the season, win or lose, was just as important as the work the team was doing on and off the court. During her speech Moren reminisced about

IU spoils Penn State homecoming

Ahlinvi makes presence felt in his debut By Jared Kelly | @Jared_Kelly7

By Sam Bodnar | @sgbod13

Junior defender A.J. Palazzolo tore down the field in the 13th minute, looking to put No. 8 IU men’s soccer up early. As he prepared to launch the ball in the back of the net, he was shoved from behind and tumbled to the ground. The early red card as a result of the play was the beginning of the chaos and physical play Sunday at Jeffrey Field. From jersey pulls to takeout slides, yellow cards and fouls piled up during this heated conference matchup. After the Nittany Lions went down a man, the rain began to pour, and its defense collapsed. IU scored three goals in the span of eight minutes in the first half to get its third consecutive victory. Penn State’s football team may have dominated Purdue on Saturday, but its soccer squad’s defensive woes could not give fans a nice ending to Homecoming weekend. The Hoosiers spoiled the Nittany  Lions’ end to the weekend with a 3-1 victory.  Taking full advantage of Penn State being down a man, the Hoosiers attacked the Nittany Lions’ defense and found themselves close to the goal box in the 16th minute. In his debut start with IU, senior midfielder Joris Ahlinvi crept past the Penn State defense and knocked in a header goal off a cross from senior defender Simon Waever. Minutes later, freshman midfielder Aidan Morris


Redshirt junior A.J. Palazzolo passes the ball during IU’s win over DePaul University on Aug. 24 at Bill Armstrong Stadium. The Hoosiers defeated the Blue Demons 3-1.

3-1 launched a left cross from 25 yards out off a restart and found Palazzolo for a header goal. This was Palazzolo’s first goal of the year and Morris’ second assist. Then, in the 24th minute, Morris maneuvered the ball around the right corner of the goal box and tapped the ball to junior midfielder Spencer Glass. Glass blasted the ball from roughly 10 yards out and scored his first goal of 2019. IU kept pushing the ball deep into Penn State’s territory throughout the remainder of the first half. Freshman goalkeeper Roman Celentano had noth-

ing to block and no threats to face as the Hoosiers primarily played on the Nittany Lions’ side of the field. A Penn State goal early in the second half from senior midfielder Aaron Molloy threatened to put Penn State back in business. Despite a more aggressive onslaught on both ends of the field from Penn State, the Hoosiers kept the Nittany Lions from climbing back into the game.  Freshman defender Daniel Munie and sophomore defender Jack Maher cleared the ball when the Nittany  Lions threatened a three on two and shut down potential opportunities near the box off corner kicks. Celentano also slapped away three shots

on goal in IU’s defensive efforts. The closing 20 minutes were the most physical as IU and Penn State combined for three yellow cards and eight fouls. Both head coaches were screaming at the officials and each other as the physicality increased. Morris was yanked by his jersey and thrown to the ground. IU senior defender Jordan Kleyn also picked up a yellow card for taking out a Penn State forward.  In the midst of the fighting and the pouring rain, IU held its ground and finished with its fifth consecutive win over Penn State.  This victory moves IU to 7-1-2 on the season and 220-8 in conference play since 2015. 

The wait is finally over for IU men's soccer and its fans. This past May, IU’s coaching staff welcomed in one of the most accomplished recruiting classes in program history. And while the muchhyped freshman class has continued to exceed expectations thus far, IU’s upperclassman newcomers have been largely quiet. That is until senior midfielder Joris Ahlinvi made his long-awaited season debut Sunday afternoon against Penn State. Following three seasons at Florida International University, the two-time First Team All-Conference USA selection decided to take his talents to Bloomington this year for his final season of eligibility. However, a lower-body injury since the start of training camp kept Ahlinvi sidelined for IU’s first nine games of the season and forced IU head coach Todd Yeagley to utilize a largely inexperienced starting lineup. But after a nearly three month rehab stint, Ahlinvi’s name was finally inserted into IU’s starting lineup. Ahlinvi wasted no time making a statement to IU fans as he put the Hoosiers ahead early with a difficult header in the 16th minute for his first goal of the season. The Frenchman continued his offensive onslaught the rest of the game, tallying four shots while aiding in the Hoosiers quality ball movement all match. Though just his first match, Ahlinvi has already begun to showcase why Yeagley was so excited for his impending arrival dating

back to his announcement in May. With a lineup that often sees anywhere from three to six freshmen on the field at any given time, the insertion of Ahlinvi’s prowess and experience into the starting lineup will likely pay major dividends. Especially late into the thick of the conference schedule, and once the race for postseason spots intensifies, IU’s freshman class will certainly need veterans to look up to for guidance. For IU to continue its winning ways, Ahlinvi will not only need to remain a highproduction player, but also a player who can get the most out of his teammates. Intangibles aside, Ahlinvi’s offensive arsenal is one that makes the Hoosiers offensive attack even more feared. Having tallied 16 goals, nine assists and 41 points in his time at FIU, Ahlinvi knows what it takes to create scoring opportunities. Playing alongside IU freshman midfielder Aidan Morris and IU junior midfielder Spencer Glass, the Hoosiers wealth of playmakers on the front line only increases with Ahlinvi. Assuming Ahlnivi’s transition into IU’s rotation goes off seamlessly, which after the Penn State match looks to already be on the right track, then Yeagley’s toolbox of players at his disposal becomes even more plentiful. If Sunday afternoon’s showing in State College, Pennsylvania, was any indication, the Hoosiers, with a healthy Ahlinvi, could very well have put the entire nation on notice as they have their sights set on another deep postseason run once again.


IU picks up its first Big Ten victory against Northwestern By Luke Lusson | @LukeLusson

After opening up conference play against three ranked opponents, two of which were road games, IU had its best chance thus far to earn a Big Ten victory Saturday night against Northwestern at home. Ultimately, the Hoosiers were able to do so, knocking off the Wildcats in four close sets - 26-24, 2522, 21-25 and 27-25. After switching to a 5-1 offensive system in Friday’s match against Illinois, IU switched back to its usual 6-2 system against Northwestern. As a team, IU hit .172 compared to Northwestern’s .195. The Hoosiers' biggest advantage was in the blocks

department. IU blocked 15 balls, while Northwestern only blocked seven. “Our strength should be blocking,” head coach Steve Aird said. “Fifteen blocks is a good start. It’s hard to do against a team like that who’s so physical.” Sophomore outside hitter Breana Edwards led IU in kills with 16, including the game-winner off an assist by freshman setter Emily Fitzner. Fitzner notched her season-high with 28 assists on the night. Senior middle blocker Deyshia Lofton added 14 kills for the Hoosiers to go along with a team-high nine blocks. The victory moves IU to 1-3 in conference and 12-5 overall. The loss for North-

3-1 western knocks it down to 0-4 in conference and 9-7 on the season. “We knew that we had to come out with some intensity and some fire,” Lofton said. “We did that, and we fought.” IU was without redshirt senior outside hitter Kendall Beerman, whose playing time continues to be monitored as she recovers from a torn ACL. Also, senior middle blocker Hayden Huybers missed both matches this weekend with an upper body injury. Saturday night’s match against Northwestern was marked as “Dig Pink Night”


IU celebrates a crucial point against Northwestern on Oct. 5 at Wilkinson Hall. The Hoosiers overpowered the Wildcats, 3-1.

by the IU volleyball program, an event to raise awareness of breast cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For Aird, the night had

significant meaning to him as someone who has watched his mother and others in his life battle the disease. “Everyone’s been touched by it,” Aird said. “It’s

great that we put this event on. It’s great that we raise awareness, and it’s great that we raise money. We’ve got to keep doing it more.” Next week, IU will have its first mid-week match as in-state rival No. 17 Purdue comes to Bloomington on Wednesday. The Boilermakers are currently 1-2 in conference and 9-3 overall, they have lost to Minnesota and Wisconsin on the road already, just like IU. “I’d like to get to the point where we’re good enough that it becomes a rivalry,” Aird said. “We’re taking strides. I would anticipate over the next five or seven years there’s going to be some barnburners with Purdue, and I hope it starts on Wednesday."

Whistleblower’s report was an act of patriotism


James Bassett is a junior in political science.

“Our responsibility is to keep it.” Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi’s words, underscoring the importance of preserving the American republic, unified the Democratic Caucus in support of an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump. The announcement of the formal impeachment inquiry follows an official whistleblower report alleging presidential abuse of power. The report indicates that Trump worked to “solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election” by pressuring the Ukrainian government under the administration of President Volodymyr

Zelensky, in a phone call to “initiate or continue an investigation into the activities of former Vice President Joseph Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.” The whistleblower continues to allege that Trump and high-level White House officials worked to cover up the call between Trump and Zelensky by transferring the call transcripts from the computer regularly used to store them to a separate computer system used to store classified and sensitive material. The use of the separate electronic system to store the transcript, according to the whistleblower, caused White House officials to question the president’s actions, as “the call did not contain anything remotely sensitive from a national

security perspective.” While the president indicated his desire to uncover the identity of the whistleblower and equated the individual to a spy worthy of punishment, it is clear that the whistleblower acted through the proper channels to check the president’s recklessness and to raise alarm at the abuse of power that occurred in the White House Situation Room. The whistleblower’s courageous act of reporting the alleged misconduct in the White House was an act of patriotism, as the interests of the nation triumphed over the interests of the self. This idea is supported by the Whistleblower Protection Act, passed by the 101st Congress in 1989, which strength-

ened protections for whistleblowers seeking to expose governmental wrongdoing. The codified protections of whistleblowers highlight the vital role whistleblowers play in removing forces of corruption and upholding the integrity of the United States government. Attacks and retaliation against the whistleblower are alarming, then, as they signal the destruction of mechanisms intended to expose corruption, waste and ethical wrongdoing. The whistleblower serves as a watchdog, personifying the transparency that is so vitally needed to protect our government from internal and degrading threats. The responsibility lies on us to stand with the American patriot who blew the whistle in

response to the foreign interference allegedly induced by Trump. Benjamin Franklin responded in seven words to a group of inquiring citizens asking what form of government had been established at the Constitutional Convention. “A republic, if you can keep it,” Franklin briefly said, alluding to the need for active citizen engagement to preserve the newly formed government. The whistleblower heeded Franklin’s advice. It is time for us to do the same by supporting the patriotism of the whistleblower and the actions the individual took to expose the impeachable offenses committed by the president. @jbassett98


Establishment wants Trump impeached for the wrong reasons Bryce Greene is a senior in informatics.

Richard Nixon’s impeachment investigation and resignation have stood tall in the minds of Americans. For many, it is a shining example of American self-correcting institution keeping power in check. Pundits today have drawn comparisons between Nixon’s corruption and President Donald Trump, but they are missing one crucial similarity: The establishment had no problem with the worst of Nixon’s crimes just as they ignore the worst of Trump’s crimes. In the same period the Watergate scandal was in full swing, public advocacy groups managed to uncover a secret FBI program aimed at targeting dissident groups who challenged the status quo. The program was called the Counter Intelligence Project or COINTELPRO and had been going on since 1956, through both Democratic and Republican presidents. Activities included spying on and disrupting activists in the civil rights, environmentalist and anti-war movements. COINTELPRO was responsible for blackmailing Martin Luther King and even the assassination of Black Panther leader, Fred Hampton.  Nixon is remembered for breaking into the Democratic Party headquarters. His downfall was not about abuse of presidential power, it was about using that power to go after the wrong people. The establishment does not care when power is used to go after people who are deemed unimportant. Activists and leftists don’t have political power and are not worth protecting. Democratic Party leaders are a different story. The Bush administration serves as another important case study. During the Bush years, it became clear that his whole cabal was responsible for war crimes. The CIA set up black sites around the world in order to torture suspects outside the purview of the justice system. The administration outright fabricated evidence in order to


U.S. President Donald Trump talks to reporters in the Oval Office while hosting Finnish President Sauli Niinisto at the White House Oct. 2, 2019 in Washington, D.C. Trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.

push us into an illegal war of aggression that cost hundreds of thousands of lives. When Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi was asked about impeachment then, she called it a “waste of time.” Lying to the American public to justify mass slaughter is easily an impeachable offense. But a global network of torture sites and the near destruction of an entire society are unworthy of serious concern from the power elite. Besides, if CIA torture was put front and center in the American public, Pelosi herself would be implicated as she knew about it as early as 2002. These are the lessons that brought us into the Trump era. The Russiagate scandal has overshadowed many of the horrible things the Trump administration is actually doing. Despite all of the media buzz and nonstop coverage, the Mueller report found no evidence to sup-

port the charge of collusion. Now, Trump has been caught attempting to get a foreign government to investigate the son of a political rival. The fact that Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, should definitely be investigated seems to be left out of the discussion. Trump went after the Bidens, and that cannot be forgiven. Now Pelosi has opened an impeachment investigation against the president. Just as in the Nixon era, no one in the establishment seems to care about the human costs of the Trump presidency. The children dying in cages at the border generated outrage but certainly no impeachment hearings. When Trump stripped the clean air act, his own Environmental Protection Agency predicted that this would result in 1,400 premature deaths a year due to health issues. Killing 1,400 people through deregulation is business as usual for

the establishment, so there was little outcry. Even after Trump was accused of sexual harassment and rape by several women, there was only rhetorical outrage from the Democrats in power. Trump’s biggest crime of all may be the ongoing support for the Saudi War on Yemen. Tens of thousands have already been killed in school buses, at weddings and in their own homes. Over 80% of the population requires humanitarian aid to survive. Millions of people have been displaced from their homes, and tens of millions are on the brink of starvation. The United Nations describes it as the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. Some observers have suggested this is enough to implicate the United States in war crimes. Congress has repeatedly voted to end U.S. support for the Saudi war, but Trump has vetoed the resolution several times. It should be noted that

the Democrats had very little to say about the same war when Barack Obama was president. Few would even describe continuing the war as an abuse of power, even though the U.N. suggested that backing up the Saudi Regime and providing military support for the war makes the U.S. complicit in war crimes. But no, it is not the dead and starving Yemeni children that merits major action. The impeachment process only began because of a phone call asking a foreign leader to investigate someone who is almost certainly corrupt. This fact should underscore that the establishment is merely a group of corporate-backed bureaucrats who care more about procedure and formality than the lives of actual human beings.  Given that the Senate is Republican-led, a successful House impeachment will amount to little more than a pointed gesture from

the House to the president. Though the process is largely symbolic, the fact that it was started by an inappropriate phone call about political rivals should demonstrate the lengths to which the establishment ignores the real crimes of people in power. Obviously Trump is a vile and corrupt conman, but as long as the establishment elevates trivial misdemeanors and ignores larger offenses against humanity, the true crimes of power will go unseen and unchallenged by the public. Democratic leaders will able to maintain the illusion that they are doing their best to make the world better simply because they are better than the Republicans. The truth is that both parties represent entrenched corporate power that only cares about the lives of ordinary people insofar as it affects their bottom line.
