loved to listen, his friend, sophomore Nicholas Fattore, said. “He made it a point to care about people when it was really easy not to,” Fattore said. Fattore is president of the Sigma Pi fraternity and went through rush with Smith last year when they were freshmen. Smith was Fattore’s first friend in the fraternity. He said the one year he knew Smith was incredible. He said Smith genuinely cared about people. His major was

environmental science and, aside from the Cowboys, he was most passionate about people. “I have a feeling they’re going to take it all the way this year for Nic,” his friend, Johnathan Panos, said. Panos, a senior in Sigma Pi, met Smith during his first night of rush last year. He said Smith had a smile and was friendly from the start. When Panos passed most people in the fraternity house, he said they would just nod or walk

past, but with Nic there was always a handshake and a “How’s it goin’?” “He always put a smile on my face, and I took it for granted because now he’s gone,” Panos said. He said he remembers a boxing tournament he worked on, organized by the Sigma Pi chapter at IU last April, titled “Last Man Standing,” to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Project aims to end violence By Sanya Ali | @siali13

The Mathers Museum of World Cultures will continue to contribute to an international anti-violence campaign this Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The “MLK Day Weave-In” will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday in the museum, and Sarah Hatcher, head of programs and education for the museum, said the event ties well into the theme of the national holiday and the project. “Dr. King’s quote, ‘Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that,’ is part of the inspiration for the One Million Stars to End Violence project,” Hatcher said. “So it is especially fitting that his legacy is honored in this way.” The event is part of a continued partnership with One Million Stars to End Violence — the project with the eventual goal of one million folded stars made by more than 150 partners worldwide — and the Lotus Education & Arts Foundation. As part of her role, Hatcher coordinates the events and educational programs that take place throughout the museum, but she said this one is especially significant. “As the museum’s educator, I’ve hosted three of these events here at the museum,” Hatcher said. “I believe that taking the time to talk about the project with each other has been another way for us to see the good that is in the world.” One of the events related to this project was a lecture this fall by project founder Maryann Talia Pau, who started weaving stars after the rape and violent murder of a woman in her community. From the initial idea sprung One Million Stars to End Violence, now an international project. Bloomington is one of the cities contributing stars to the project by weaving stars that Pau will collect and send for display at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. “I think one of the things that was most striking about Maryann Talia Pau was her passion and her quiet yet powerful presence,” Hatcher said. “She believes deeply in this project and in the ways that simply making and talking together might elicit change.” The weave-in taking place on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day honoring another figure who advocated for nonviolence, will offer opportunities to contribute to the project and also bring about a sense of togetherness among attendees from all backgrounds, Hatcher said. “Monday is an opportunity to take some time, build some community and weave some stars in honor of one of our country’s most influential people,” Hatcher said. “Last year we had IU students, Brownies, church groups and others all together — so it is a chance to meet others and make new friends as well.” The museum has many goals that fall in line with programming such as the star weave-in, Hatcher said. “One of the key aspects of our mission is to help people understand the underlying unity of culture as a human phenomenon,” Hatcher said. “One of the many things that people all over the world deeply want for themselves and for their families is peace, safety and security.

Continuing the dream By Lyndsay Jones | @lyndsayjonesy

Thursday was four days from Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but the Rev. Dennis Laffoon was already preparing himself for the holiday. Laffoon, 45, spent the afternoon listening to King’s speeches to prepare himself for a sermon Sunday and service Monday, he said. “The messages in his speeches are the same as the issues we’re facing today,” Laffoon said. “If you didn’t know it was the ‘60s, you could think he was speaking today.” Bloomington has traditionally celebrated MLK Day by marking it as a day of service and encouraging people to take advantage of community volunteer opportunities. The emphasis on service comes from a sermon King gave in 1968. From his pulpit at Ebenezar Baptist Church in Atlanta, King told his congregation, “Everyone can be great because everyone can serve.” In that spirit, the city approved 31 organizations’ proposals requesting funding for service

and educational events on MLK Day this year. However, some community leaders say that a focus on service is not enough. Jim Sims, president of the Monroe County NAACP chapter, said civil rights are the most important aspect of the day and of King’s legacy. “It should all go and come back to civil rights,” Sims said. “Focusing only on services dilutes some of the conversation.” Sims, 60, said he has always believed in the importance of civil rights, but the current political climate has renewed that concern for him. “Civil rights is for everybody,” Sims said. “What’s good for me is good for you, and what’s bad for me is bad for you. We have to fight hard to make sure American civil rights aren’t stripped away.” Sims said he encourages people to think about what’s really true within the United States. “I think one of the ideas this country is allegedly based on is liberty and justice for all, but my rhetorical question to you is, ‘Do you really believe that?’” Sims said.

Big opportunity awaits IU swim and dive By Ben Portnoy | @bportnoy15

It’s not often a chance at a program-defining victory comes along, but that is exactly what the IU swimming and diving teams have in front of them Friday afternoon. IU will welcome the Michigan Wolverines to the Counsilman-Billingsley Aquatics Center at 2 p.m. Friday. IU comes into the meet ranked tied for No. 4 in the country on the men’s side and at No. 13 for the women. Michigan is tied for No. 12 in men’s and ranked No. 6 in women’s. Michigan has also won eight of the last nine men’s Big Ten Championships and is the defending women’s champs. “I know that our whole team has been training super hard especially in these even past few days just preparing and everyone looks so ready to go,” junior diver Jessica Parratto said. The Hoosiers men’s swimmers will be led by junior Blake Pieroni, a gold medalist at the

Rio de Janeiro Olympics and winner of two silvers and a bronze medal at the FINA Short Course World Championships in December. “It’s going to be intense. It’s going to be one for the record books,” Pieroni said. “I don’t know when the last time we beat Michigan in a dual meet was, but we’re hoping to end that streak this Friday.” It’s not surprising Pieroni can’t recall the last time IU men’s swimming beat Michigan in a dual meet. It was January of 1999, and he had just turned three years old. The men’s team will also look for big results from its consistent divers. The squad has had a diver finish first in every single meet this year. “It’s a chance to get a good look at our competition,” Diving Coach Drew Johansen said. “Obviously they’re the defending Big Ten champs on the men’s side. They’ve got some great swimmers and divers, and we’ll get a chance to size them up and see what we’re in for.”


Junior Stephanie Marchuk swims the 1000-yard freestyle during the meet against Cincinnati on Oct. 1, 2015, at the Counsilman-Billingsley Aquatic Center.

On the women’s side the Hoosiers will look to get some more big results from junior swimmer Kennedy Goss, a bronze medalist for Canada in Rio de Janeiro and a gold medalist in the 4x200-meter relay at the FINA Short Course World Championships. “It’s going to be a tough

meet for both women and men because Michigan is a top program,” Goss said. “Michigan women won Big Ten last year, and they beat the boys at Big Ten last year, so it’s going to be a tough meet, but hopefully we can do our best to come out on SEE SWIMMING, PAGE 6

Protesting: a personal and historical experience SPEA’s Power of the Protest event aims to promote civic engagement with discussion of historical protests By Dominick Jean | dominojean

Colin Kaepernick, the Dakota Access Pipeline, the immigration reform march in Indianapolis in 2006 and Black Lives Matter are just a few of the protests seen in recent years. For some, these protests were only events in the news, but for others these protests were far more important. Mariana Lopez-Owens, a Bloomington resident, said she still remembers when she participated in the protest march in Indianapolis in 2006 to advocate for immigration reform. Lopez-Owens and her mother were undocumented immigrants at the time, and she said she still remembers her anxiety. “We were undocumented,” she said. “We could have been arrested.” Lopez-Owens said the power of protest and community organizing resides with the people. “You need to engage the people,” Lopez-Owens said. Paul Helmke, another professor in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, joined Lopez-Owens at a SPEA event, Power of Protest, on Thursday. Helmke related his own experience with protesting and organizing. Helmke said he has been part of numerous protests and even shook Martin Luther King Jr.‘s hand when he came to Fort Wayne, Indiana. “I was 14 years old,” Helmke said. “It was very inspiring. I thought, ‘I can try to do something, too.’” SPEA put together the event which brought these people together on Thursday. Power of Protest was designed to help draw

people like Lopez-Owens and Helmke out and to encourage people to volunteer to affect the world like King did. Helmke went on to graduate IU and was the student body president in 1969-1970. He said he went on to lead protests when IU hiked tuition, and IU students even marched on the statehouse in those years. Brad Fulton, an assistant professor in SPEA, agreed and said when people come together with clearly articulated goals, a successful protest and movement is possible. “The power of community organizing is not with money but with people,” Fulton said. Yuan “Daniel” Cheng, a SPEA student, said community organizing with people was something the Communist Party in his home country of China did very well when coming into power, but now it is different. “Later they became

experts on stamping out community organizing,” Cheng said. While there is still grassroots organizing and protests of issues like environmental affairs in China, there is little political protest unlike the United States, Cheng said. Fulton teaches about community organizing through history and said the issue is always about empowering those gathering together. Community organizing and protesting are an empowering mechanism for those without power, Fulton said. He explained those with power already control the levers of society and do not need to protest. Helmke also said protesting is not just about goals and people but about a willingness to sacrifice for what protestors believe in, especially in light of a polarizing election. “You have to be willing to give up something,”

Helmke said. “The challenge will be what happens when Trump comes in.” Helmke said protests have often been controversial and unwanted by those in power. He referenced King’s March on Washington and his “I have a dream” speech as key examples of pushing on the part of protesters. “Back then it was controversial,” Helmke said. “The powers that be don’t like being pushed, and pushing is a part of protest.” Helmke drew on historic examples like King’s protests — both the march from Selma, Alabama, and the bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama — to put the protests of the past years and decade in perspective. “I think this could be a new age of activism,” Helmke said. “With the new president and new administration this is going to be an interesting time.”

LGBT exhibit arrives in Bloomington From IDS reports

This month the Indiana Memorial Union will be the next stop for “The Legacy Wall” — a traveling, interactive LGBT history exhibit, according to a press release. The exhibit, which began its journey in 2015, will arrive Jan. 23 in the East Lounge and stay until Feb. 3. A reception will take place at 7 p.m. Jan. 23 in the East Lounge and be followed by a presentation on the Kinsey institute by local activist Michael Bedwell in the IMU University Club’s President’s Room at 8 p.m. “During this time of political upheaval and uncertainty, it seems to me that knowing

our history as queer people is essential,” said Doug Bauder, director of the LGBTQ+ Culture Center. “‘The Legacy Wall’ will educate and inspire a new generation of students to see that LGBTQ+ individuals have made significant contributions to all aspects of culture, and the display will remind all of us of the need to stand up for our rights as individuals.” The wall is double-sided and features small biographies of 125 national and international figures, such as founder of the Kinsey Institute Alfred Kinsey and Indiana songwriter Cole Porter. The wall includes wellknown achievements and people, like World War II co-

debreaker Alan Turing. However, it also includes relatively lesser-known milestones, such as the “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal and the Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court decision, to LGBT equality. There are QR codes on the wall so visitors can scan them with their phones to access more information about the topics. Since its creation, the wall has visited Illinois State Library, the University of Illinois-Springfield, Illinois State University, Illinois Wesleyan University, Chicago State University and the National LGBTQ Task Force Creating Change Conference. “The Legacy Wall is im-

Senior Marissa Taylor said she loved her job as an undergraduate teaching assistant, but at IU, her biggest challenge was the cap on how many hours she could work. As a UTA, Taylor helped answer students’ questions in class, taught lessons and assisted in lab setup. By law, the University must offer benefits to employees who work fulltime or at least 75 percent of their available hours, according to the school’s human resources website. Taylor said she wanted to have more opportunities for teaching experience in her field, but the University’s regulations prevented this from happening because they would need to give her benefits normally reserved for more senior staff. In addition to her UTA position, she had multiple jobs on campus. At IU, UTAs are compensated through either hourly wages or credit. Working hourly was a big piece of the difficulty. Taylor, who studies exercise science, said she first applied to the UTA program as a sophomore and worked in the P215: Basic Human Physiology lab. Part of Taylor’s difficulty arose in how she was compensated. Typically the academic department pays the hourly wage a UTA would earn, but she said due to a merit-based scholarship program, her position counted toward an internship with different

compensation instead. “I understand the purpose of them making that stipulation, but I think that it was doing a disservice to a lot of people who wanted to be involved in more areas on campus,” Taylor said. The rules for her scholarship have changed, and Taylor said she is no longer working in the same capacity she was in previous semesters. When asked if she felt like the University’s cap on hours exploited students, she said it was most detrimental to students’ opportunities for experience on campus. She also said her job in the past was not a bad position to be in. Instead of just grading student work, she taught labs and got to know professors and lab staff better. Her role was primarily as a set of extra hands and not the grading spokesperson. Because many of the students in the program are close to her age, Taylor said it was important for her to balance her level of professionalism with relating to her peers. For Taylor the benefits of the job far outweigh the complications of the University compensation rules. “It’s a really good opportunity to make a big campus small,” Taylor said of the experience. “They always say IU is really large and it’s hard to get to know your professors one on one, and this was a really good opportunity to get to know professors and lab directors.”

$3 million set to be used for new learning approach From IDS reports

A new research team at IU has been awarded $3 million to study how children learn and if machines can learn in the same manner. This $3 million award is the inaugural grant of a new Emerging Areas of Research initiative, which was put forth in the Bicentennial Strategic Plan for IU. This first EAR project is being led by Linda Smith, a professor of psychological and brain sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences. Provost and Executive Vice President Lauren Robel said in a press release the new program is designed to keep IU on the cutting edge of research. “The stellar team led by Professor Smith epitomizes the strengths that allow us to build toward that future,” Robel said. Smith said in the press release that many people do not think there is a connection between cognitive learning for children and machine learning, but she said that is a fundamental misunderstanding.

“THE LEGACY WALL” Free Jan. 23 – Feb. 3 IMU East Lounge

“The proposal leverages exemplary areas of research on our campus, and the combination is certain to yield exciting results,” Rick Van Kooten, Vice President for research at IU

“From its beginnings, computer science has always had overlapping questions with cognitive psychology and neuroscience,” Smith said in the release. Smith is known internationally for her work and research on human cognition, particularly with children. According to the press release, Smith plans to bring new faculty who are experts in cognition, neuroscience and machine learning. “The proposal leverages exemplary areas of research on our campus, and the combination is certain to yield exciting results,” Rick Van Kooten, the vice provost for research at IU, said in the press release.

Union Board has first meeting of semester By Emily Berryman

Union Board members chatting about the new name plates were brought to silence when Josh Thomas, Union Board president, called the meeting to order. At 6 p.m. every Thursday Union Board has meetings in the Distinguished Alumni Room in the Indiana Memorial Union. Thursday night’s meeting was the board’s first meeting since Dec. 8. During the meeting everything from the IMU hotel renovations to community service was discussed. Most of the renovated first floor rooms will reopen for use this week, though IMU Director Hank Walter said some minor details with the new rooms will still need to be finalized. For now temporary versions are in place. Everything is on budget except for renovation costs, Walter said. However, that was to be expected because it was such a great undertaking. Snow Yin, vice president of finance, read the budget numbers for review. She said

all the numbers were subject to change when the finals costs of programs from the fall semester were calculated and the numbers were just estimates. Board members were able to establish ideas for how to program and to prepare for the new semester during the group’s retreat during winter break. “I thought it went really well, those of us that were there the whole time, we got to know each other on a different level,” said Yasmine Raouf, a member of the Lecture Committee. “We all came to value each other on another level, looking forward to getting that close with everyone else.” The retreat was a chance for members to gain insight on how other universities’ programming boards are run. They talked with board members from Ball State University and Purdue University. Emily Carr, a member of the Fun and Adventure Committee, said it was a great learning experience. She said she enjoyed the diversity of thought. Though Ball State

students said they had more participants, IU board members determined Union Board does more programming to reach minority groups — veterans, the LGBT community, Latinos and others — on campus. Before discussing their instructional winter retreat, board members worked on streamlining meetings by reducing the number of members that need to attend. The group also deliberated on creating a committee that will select a service project within the community. In the past, members had discussed alternating full board meetings and smaller programming ones. On Thursday night the option was discussed more in depth. Concerns were raised by various members about the potential difficulty this would cause when planning an event. A tentative plan for a new meeting style was made: Meetings would alternate on a weekly basis between full meetings and programming meetings. Such meetings would be

opportunities to discuss the community service project and campus programming. Among the ideas pitched for community service project were working with other organizations to plan benefit concerts on campus, getting board members to help build

a house with Habitat for Humanity, and donating food to Hoosier Hills Food Bank or the Crimson Cupboard to raise awareness for food insecurity on campus. Though no decision was reached during the meeting, a list of names was made to

form a committee to select and plan the community service project. Union Board meetings are open to the public, and students are encouraged to sit in 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday nights in the Distinguished Alumni Room in the IMU.

IFC vice president improves spring rush efficiency By Larmie Sanyon @DaGreatestSanyn

Adam Weber’s job has him overseeing the entire fraternity recruitment process — that means more than 30 fraternity chapters and 1,800 students rushing in the fall and half that in the spring. He’s the point of contact with all chapters and their rush chairs. Weber, vice president of recruitment for Interfraternity Council, said he wants to make the rushees more comfortable and their experiences more efficient. In the rush process hopefuls will attempt to establish a rapport with members of the chapter in order to be offered a bid. At IU this process can be

hectic because of the amount of students involved. In the spring, there are more than 900 students who must be satisfied. They have to be shown to all the houses and given an opportunity to talk to brothers. That means a lot of work for Weber. “I will be very accessible,” Weber said. “If you have any questions, please contact me. I’m willing to help any kid find the right chapter for them.” He said he thinks it is important to have an open-door policy because rush can be a very complicated process. That’s why he wants to implement some changes this semester. “The problem in the past is that people didn’t know who was in charge of recruitment,”

Weber said. “I want people to know that they can reach out to me.” Weber said rushees will be introduced to different members of the IFC board and learn about different things going on like philanthropy. Weber said he thinks giving rushees more exposure to the inner workings of IFC and greek life will make them feel more comfortable and make the entire experience smoother. However, he’s still looking to make it more efficient. “What I’m doing is having some part of the questions just be me addressing frequently asked questions,” Weber said. He said he will try to forgo the period when rushes ask questions because he said the

students are often too anxious to ask their questions. That’s why he will focus on the most frequently addressed concerns and questions to start the questions-and-answer portion. He said he hopes his initiative will encourage students to ask more questions. The most important initiative he said he’ll present this semester is a two-round rush. “In the past kids give up after a week or two thinking that there aren’t available spots, and that’s simply not the case,” he said. He said there is traditionally one round lasting a couple of weeks. The round involves tours and bids being offered. However, Weber said that doesn’t work. “I’m going to ask every

chapter what their goal is for their recruitment class,” Weber said. “I’ll be able to look at which kids haven’t signed bids yet, and I can say, ‘Hey, these guys have a spot, and I can put you in touch with their rush chair.’” Another round could grant hopefuls another chance. Additionally, he said he will try to make the housing tours three days, not two. He said he thinks it will give rushees a better opportunity to build a rapport with chapters. Some in the greek community, like sophomore Ben Harrison, welcome Weber’s initiatives. Harrison is currently pledging a fraternity, but he said he recalls his rush process being a challenge. Harrison said he supports

the initiatives by Weber to make rush less challenging for students. He thinks these implementations will be good because rushees tend to give up prematurely. “I went in knowing a few people after rushing freshman year,” Harrison said. “What helped me the second time around was that I had specific houses to revisit where I already knew people.” Weber said he wants to avoid incidents where young men, like Harrison, are forced to wait an entire semester or school year to have another opportunity to receive a bid. With these changes at hand, Weber and Harrison said they look forward to being part of rush and talking to as many hopefuls as possible.

City becomes home to new carwash By Jessica Ensign | @jessmensign

Bloomington drivers now have a new place to have their cars cleaned. Crew Carwash, a company local to Indiana, opened its 29th location on West Third Street on Jan. 7. This is the company’s second carwash outside central Indiana. The first was in Merrillville, Indiana. “Our people are what sets us apart,” said Ben Trusnik, an employee at the new location. “I’ve made some really close friends here.” Trusnik has been working for Crew Carwash for more than two years now. He said he was happy the new location opened in Bloomington so he could continue working for the company while studying at IU. Crew Carwash offers a tuition-assistance program for student employees. Applications for the program are available for up to $2,500 in assistance. One highlight of the

City to assist residents enrolling in health insurance By Emily Ernsberger | @emilyerns

The City of Bloomington will offer free assistance to those who want to enroll in a health insurance plan through President Obama’s health care law. The event will take place 5-7 p.m. Jan. 24 in the Monroe County Public Library. Enrollment for plans through the Health Insurance Marketplace ends Jan. 31. The city is working with Affiliated Service Providers of Indiana Navigators, IU Health Individual Solutions and South Central Community Action Program’s Covering Kids and Families, according to the release.

Health insurance plans through the marketplace require re-enrollment each year. Though President-elect Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress have made promises to repeal and replace “Obamacare,” health projects coordinator Nancy Woolery said she is hopeful people who enroll this year will be able to keep their insurance throughout 2017. “I know a lot of people are nervous about it, but the best thing to do is get health insurance,” Woolery said. “Repeal and replace won’t happen overnight, but we can’t be certain.” Certified Indiana Navigators, assistants for those who need help enrolling, will be

at the event to help enrollees and answer questions, according to a release from the city. Information on 2017 Health Insurance Marketplace plans, Indiana Medicaid, Hoosier Healthwise and the Healthy Indiana Plan will be available. People may enroll in state plans at anytime. The city asks applicants to provide Social Security numbers; birth dates; household income; and documents, such as a driver’s license, U.S. passport and immigration status, to verify identity. Those who have previously used a marketplace account should bring their login information. Woolery said the city has not done many open enrollment events but has invited

insurance companies and provided a list of places to receive help at previous events. About 169,000 people in Indiana have health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace as of Dec. 13, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Nationally 20 million people have received health insurance through “Obamacare” since it was implemented in 2010. Though many would potentially lose insurance if Congress repeals “Obamacare,” Woolery said she emphasizes people need to be covered for the time being. “We just don’t want people to not have insurance,” Woolery said.

There are several local resources that can assist those who cannot attend the event: City of Bloomington Call 812-349-3851 for enrollment assistance.

New bill would make state school chief appointed, not elected By Alexa Chryssovergis @achryssovergis

Gov. Eric Holcomb announced one of his priorities for the 2017 legislative session will be passing a bill to make Indiana’s school chief a governor-appointed position rather than an elected one. House Bill 1005 was written by House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, and referred to the Committee on Education on Jan. 10, according to the Indiana General Assembly website. The bill doesn’t sit well with Rep. Melanie Wright, D-Yorktown, who also teaches at Daleville Community Schools. It would take away voting power from constituents. “I think it’s very important it stays an elected position,” Wright said. “It’s important to have voter input — so important.” Holcomb revealed the legislation as part of his fivepart plan for the 2017 session. If passed the governor would appoint a secretary of education beginning in 2021. The bill would allow current Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick to finish her

four-year term. “This is not about the person, me or the superintendent,” Holcomb said. “This is about the position and how they can be aligned to work truly together.” In a statement released after Holcomb discussed his 2017 education agenda, McCormick said she values the voices of all constituents and acknowledges the decision will be a difficult one for legislators to make. “I do not view this as a personal reflection of my ability or willingness to effectively work with the Governor,” McCormick said in the Jan. 5 release. “While I value the notion of a separation of powers between the Governor and state superintendent, I fully recognize that the governor and state superintendent must work collaboratively.” This is not the first time the legislature has discussed changing the school chief position; clashes during former Superintendent Glenda Ritz’s tenure between the school chief and former Gov. Mike Pence began conversations about altering her role. Pence promoted a bill in 2015 that would have stripped Ritz’s power leading the state board of education that same summer, but

the bill the legislature ended up passing only allowed the state board of education to elect its own chair beginning in 2017. Previously the superintendent had been the default head of the board. This decision did not affect Ritz’s position, though, as the incumbent lost her re-election bid in November . Bosma hinted at past tensions in a statement responding to Holcomb’s agenda by saying the goal of the bill is “taking politics out of the process and ensuring consistency in education policy.” “Democrats and Republicans have supported this reform in the past, and I’ve personally advocated this change for many years,” Bosma said in the Jan. 5 statement. Ritz didn’t shy away from discussing the drama that surrounded much of her term. The tensions seemed constant — during one campaign night for re-election last fall, Ritz said Pence would never stop trying to thwart her. Wright said this bill probably appears less controversial than the bill from 2015 because the legislators introducing it are of the same party as the superin-

tendent. It doesn’t come off as an attempt to strip power. Though a majority of states appoint their school chiefs rather than elect them, Wright said the legislature should continue to do what’s best for Indiana rather than following suit. What’s best in this case is for

the position to remain an elected one, she said. The legislature has hit teachers with too many changes in the past few years without seeking their input enough, which is how unforeseen problems crop up later on, Wright said. Listening to teachers and

constituents is vital to making good change, she said. “I think any time we can give voters an opportunity to vote on anything, we’re getting their feedback,” Wright said. “And that’s what democracy is about.”


Odd crimes this week: Tasers, Netflix porn and a nonexistent box From IDS Reports

From a Netflix porn mixup to a trespassing call involving at least one Taser, a few odd and unexpected crimes were reported to the Bloomington Police Department this week. All of the following accounts were collected from BPD. Breaking and leaving When the resident of a house on the 100 block of East 15th Street returned home Jan. 6 after winter break, he noticed the

house’s detached garage had been broken into. Nothing was missing; rather, several objects were there that hadn’t been before. Later that night, a man knocked on the door and told the resident he’d been kicked out of his house and was storing personal belongings in the garage. He asked if he could continue to keep the items there. The resident relayed the inquiry to the homeowner, who declined but gave the man time to remove his belongings.

Police said they do not believe the man had slept in the garage. And chill? A student called police Monday with a pornography complaint after he saw an image of two naked people on his rental iPad. The image had a Netflix logo on it. Police did not find anything suspicious about the image or device. Not the full package Police were called Mon-

day to College Mall after a man allegedly made threats against the mall. The complainant told police the man had repeatedly asked him to give him a job. After being asked several times, the complainant declined. The man then told him he’d left a box in or near a women’s restroom. Police found no such box. Tased or confused? Police responded Tuesday morning to an address on the 2900 block of South

Pinewood Lane after a resident reported two people trespassing and warned that one of them may have a Taser. When officers arrived, they found a man and woman on the residence’s porch. The woman told officers she did have a Taser and gave it to them to hold. The man said he didn’t want to leave and he came to the residence to confront his wife, who was inside the residence. He told police he believed she was suicidal but couldn’t say why.

The man then told officers that when they first arrived at the home, a resident opened the door, Taser in hand, and told the man his wife didn’t want to see him. He then began “flashing” the Taser, the man said, according to the report, though police didn’t know if “flashing” meant “brandishing” or “sparking.” After again telling them to leave, the man said, the resident called the police.

Bower comes into the meet on the heels of a thirdplace finish at the USA Diving Winter Nationals in the 3-meter springboard. The result earned her a spot on the USA World University games roster competing in Taipei, Taiwan, in August. Parratto, a Dover, New Hampshire, native, is continuing her transition this year from platform diving to the springboard. So far the decision to focus on the springboard has paid off. “It’s definitely a lot harder for me just because I’ve focused so much of my time and energy on platform,” Parratto said. ”So, it’s such a different concept to go in

that is why projects like this send a message and promote dialogue in the world at large. “Both visual and performance arts allow for the spread of subtle or overt messages in entertaining and engaging ways,” Hatcher said. “There is a long tradition of us-

and train. Obviously it’s a lot lower, and it actually moves up and down. I’m working on my leg strength and improving that and just learning all the big dives I need to compete and actually be competitive in the Big Ten and NCAA.” The spring opener will also reflect the work the Hoosiers put in during winter break. During that time the swimmers took a training trip to Bermuda, where they lived in an army barracks, and the divers had a training camp in Bloomington that began right after the New Year. “It was different,” Pieroni said of the barracks. “I think we had probably about 30 guys in one room together, and it definitely facilitated a faster bonding experience, which was the other goal of the trip.” Johansen also described

the experience his divers endured while in Bloomington by explaining the camp allowed the athletes to focus entirely on diving and not have to worry about schoolwork and other worries that come during the year. Now back in class and back in the pool, the Hoosiers are ready to welcome the Wolverines to town and get a crack at what could be the men’s first victory against Michigan in a dual meet since the 1998-99 season and the women’s first since 2013-14. “I know that every single person on this team is not going to hold back as far as that,” Parratto said. “We’ve wanted that win for so long. I feel like I know it’s our time to really, really show everyone and prove to whoever doubted us before that it’s really our time to shine.”

Laffoon said the United States’ struggle with racial problems is systemic and ongoing and has become more overt in recent months. “I am 45, and this is the first time in my life that I have see such a racially divided nation,” Laffoon said. “MLK Day is four days before the swearing in of a president that for many will bring a season we hoped would never come.” Sims’ and Laffoon’s concerns stem from observations of the political leadership of President-elect Donald Trump’s administration. In November Trump selected Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Alabama, as his choice for attorney general. Civil rights activists decried the move due to Sessions’ voting records. According to Ballotopedia, Sessions voted against the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act in 2013 and against special funding for minority- and womanowned businesses in 1998. National news sites, including the New York Times and have reported Sessions called the 1965 Voting Rights Act intrusive legislation. “The other day I was just reading Coretta Scott King’s letter about (Sessions’) history of coming after civil rights leaders,” Laffoon said. “Here we are, 20 to 30 years later, and the past is repeating itself in such a way that we have to be vigilant.” Laffoon and Sims are not the only leaders who have felt urgency and concern

Fattore’s was having medical complications, and Smith noticed a change in his friend’s behavior. “Nic saw me down and asked if I was all right,” Fattore said. “I just spilled it all out. He was very good at listening.” After the summer break, when Fattore returned to school, Smith asked him how his family member was doing. Fattore said he will always miss how Smith made

him feel — either annoyed at his sarcasm, he said while laughing, or so lucky to have him by his side. “I think I’m going to miss knowing that no matter what happened to me or someone I know, I always had Nic to fall back on,” Fattore said. Smith died Tuesday night. The Dallas Cowboys have their first playoff game of the season against the Green Bay Packers on Jan. 15.

about the political climate. Yassmin Fashir, an IU sophomore and community educator in Wilkie Quad, said she believes MLK Day is a day to remember the fight. “For me, MLK Day is a day where I feel like we can at least remember that what we’re fighting for is timeless and that it transcends generations,” Fashir said. Fashir helped create “The Formation Exhibition,” an exhibit featuring photography from the civil rights era next to photos illustrating the same fight in present day among other displays. “We’re doing this to show that the fight for black liberation is still going on today,” Fashir said. “What I see going on today is parallel to what happened during the civil rights movement.” Fashir’s MLK Day activism began when she enrolled at IU. Culture shock prompted her to take action, she said. “A lot of it was self-realization that I was black,” Fashir said. “Before, I didn’t realize what that meant.” Dexter Griffin, a sophomore at Bloomington High School South, said he will serve on MLK Day for the twelfth consecutive year. His family introduced him to MLK Day service when he was three. Griffin’s service extends well past MLK Day. Griffin was awarded the Commission on the Status of Black Males’ Outstanding Black Male Leader of Tomorrow Award in 2016. While Griffin said he loves to serve the community, he also hopes for better times. He said he’d like to see

more open-mindedness and integration within Bloomington beyond MLK Day. “Some people here are really close-minded,” Griffin said. “Being a black man, I’ve seen some things. It’s hard to explain, but these things, in the black community, we’ve always seen it.” Sims said even though the holiday is largely centered around service, he believes some people will walk away changed, perhaps through conversations they may have with people different than them. “Conversation is what’s valuable,” Sims said. One opportunity for consideration and conversationstarting will be Monday night in the Buskirk-Chumley Theater when Adam Foss will speak. Foss is an advocate for criminal justice reform and a former juvenile division assistant district attorney in Boston. Foss said he is concerned with systemic injustice and will speak about how to combat inequity and mobilize communities to exercise their civil rights. “Service is a good thing,” Foss said. “It should happen all the time. Sometimes I feel like doing service is a way that we make ourselves feel better about not having that really uncomfortable conversation that we should be having, especially right now.” Despite their shared apprehension, all five people will serve the Bloomington and IU communities on MLK Day. “I believe this is the way it is,” Sims said. “Only light can overcome dark, and only love can defeat hate.”

Hoosiers return home in a must-win situation against Scarlet Knights By Zain Pyarali | @ZainPyarali

Parity is defined as equivalence or similarity in status or character. There’s been a great deal of similarity among men’s basketball teams across the NCAA Division I level. There have been three different No. 1 teams in the nation so far, and there is a potential fourth on the way after Baylor’s loss Tuesday. That same parity only intensifies in Big Ten play. Close conference matchups create contested and high-energy battles on the hardwood nearly every night, and unfortunately for IU, the Hoosiers have been on the wrong end of three of these battles already. On Tuesday against Maryland IU showed the fight it lacked in previous Big Ten losses by never letting the Terrapins lead by any more than five points in the second half but ultimately couldn’t finish when a potentially buzzer-beating 3-pointer missed. The Hoosiers still have time to turn around their play in the Big Ten, but it has to start at noon Sunday in a must-win game at home against Rutgers. “We got to watch the film.

IU (11-6) vs. Rutgers (11-6) 12 p.m. Sunday, Assembly Hall Sunday’s game is a must-win for IU, not only because its Big Ten standing is in jeopardy but also because the road ahead looks bleak. After Rutgers IU plays three of its next four on the road. It will start at a very improved Penn State, where IU lost one of its three Big Ten games last year, before returning home to play MSU and going away to Michigan and Northwestern. As much as parity makes college basketball competitive, IU showed early this season it has the talent level to put itself among the elite around the nation. If IU — and its struggling defense — wants to get back to its winning ways, there’s no better time to do it than at home against the Big Ten’s lowest-scoring offense. The defending Big Ten regular-season champions have the possibility to have the same amount of conference wins as a team that won one game in the Big Ten a year ago. That’s concerning to say the least. “I don’t think we feel like our backs are against the wall,” Blackmon Jr. said. “But we know we gotta turn it up and find our identity and find a way to win.”

IU faces Northwestern amidst difficult cirumstances for Wildcats By Jake Thomer

IU (12-5) at Northwestern (13-4) 3 p.m. Saturday, Evanston, Ill. | @jake_the_thomer

Saturday’s game between IU and Northwestern is compelling enough on paper. The Hoosiers are 12-5, the Wildcats are 13-4, and both teams sit at 2-2 in the Big Ten eager to boost their conference records to better than .500. However, the death of Northwestern sophomore guard Jordan Hankins on Monday has added more meaning to the matchup. Northwestern postponed Wednesday’s game against Minnesota, so Saturday will be the first game for the Wildcats in a week and the first time the team has played without Hankins. “Jordan was a remarkably dynamic young woman,” Northwestern Coach Joe McKeown said in a release at the time of Hankins’ death. “This is a devastating loss for our basketball family. She brought an unwavering intensity and commitment to everything in her life. We will miss her enormously.” The status of Saturday’s game remained somewhat uncertain until Thursday, when the Wildcats decided to go forward with the game. Per an IU spokesperson both teams will wear special patches with “JH5” on them to honor Hankins, who wore No. 5 for the Wildcats. Both teams are working to come up with other ways to honor the Indianapolis native.


Junior forward Amanda Cahill attempts to steal the ball from Michigan during the game Tuesday.

The matchup on the court has significant implications. With the season more than halfway finished, NCAA Tournament résumés are becoming increasingly important. IU is ranked 61st in the RPI, and Northwestern is No. 54. The Hoosiers currently have no top-50 wins, so a victory Saturday would give IU its best-RPI win of the season. Before IU’s game against Michigan on Tuesday, IU Coach Teri Moren spoke about the significance of Big Ten games. “I think they’re all important,” Moren said. “We always just talk about it being a

one-game season. Every game for us is a measuring stick. Every game matters, and the ones that you can get away from Assembly Hall are very important.” The Wildcats are led by senior forward Nia Coffey, who averages 20.8 points and 11.2 rebounds per game. Northwestern’s versatile and dynamic backcourt closely mirrors IU’s because both have a shorter ball handler to complement a taller shooting guard. Wildcat senior guards Ashley Deary and Christen Inman stand at 5-foot4 and 5-foot-10, respectively. Junior guard Tyra Buss, the shorter

member of IU’s backcourt, will be tasked with stopping Deary while senior guard Alexis Gassion’s 5-foot-11 frame will help her match up with Inman. Gassion and Buss combine for about 34 points per game, while Deary and Inman combine for 25 points and almost 10 assists per game. Buss said Gassion’s length on the perimeter makes her the team’s best on the defensive side. “Alexis is definitely our best perimeter defender,” Buss said. “She’s just so long, it’s hard to get a shot off. Even when you feel like she’s not on you, she is because she’s so long, and I think Lex really takes pride in her defense, too, which helps.” The circumstances surrounding Saturday’s game are sure to have some impact on the psyches of all the players. The emotional road environment will make it even tougher for IU to pull out a win, but Moren said she is confident in her team’s ability to handle road games. “I just think that comes with a veteran team,” Moren said. “You have juniors and seniors that are leading the team. We’re well aware of what it takes to win on the road, but you have to really be sound defensively.”

The government should abolish the TSA After Sept. 11, 2001, our government decided we need to take airplane security much more seriously. The agency the goverment implemented, however, is a complete joke. Gone are the days of showing up just half an hour before your boarding time and bringing more than a shot glass worth of shampoo onto the plane. Instead, we now have the Transportation Security Administration breathing down our backs in an unsuccessful attempt to make us safer. The TSA claims to prevent acts of terror on our airlines, but it’s difficult to say that they’ve ever done so. A study finished in 2013 concluded for every 1000 times a TSA employee flagged someone as suspicious, only 6 were arrested. Not one was arrested for expected terrorism. This inefficiency is staggering, and it leads to time and money being thrown away on ridiculous security procedures. I’m more afraid of accidentally incurring the wrath of some underpaid, overworked TSA agent than I am of someone trying to bomb my flight. The system is that inconvenient. Not only does the TSA needlessly investigate so many innocent people, it has very low success rates at stopping actual danger. The Department of Homeland Security tested the TSA’s ability to stop dangerous people from boarding planes in 2015, and the results are infuriating. Seventy Homeland Security agents attempted to board planes while armed with bombs or weapons, and 67 of them did. Our beloved TSA failed to catch potentially dangerous individuals 95 percent of the time. In short, we’re spending more than $7 billion per year on an agency, the sole purpose of which is to

annoy innocent civilians. When my family was returning from a trip to Hawaii, my mom brought some small bottles of Hawaiian salt home with us. Not only did the TSA decide this family of four needed to be further questioned, it felt the need to open every bottle of salt and test them for threatening chemicals. My mother was embarrassed, my father was infuriated, and the TSA workers agreed it was ridiculous, but they were following policy. When we’re worried about people taking cooking supplies home from a vacation, we’re missing the mark and wasting everyone’s time. God forbid someone try to season airplane food mid-flight. We have a government that is seriously overstepping its bounds and treading upon personal freedoms. The TSA is just one of many symptoms of this overreach, but it’s an example that makes my head spin. Year after year, investigations show the TSA simply doesn’t work, yet we’re being asked to pay more for this terrible government babysitting. Currently, fliers pay a $2.50 tax on each leg of a flight, and the money goes directly to the TSA. By 2019, however, that number will rise to $5.60. Not only are we being taxed on our income to fund broken government programs, we will be further gutted every time we want to use the service. Imagine if Spotify charged us $5 per month and 5 cents every time we play a song. It’s ridiculous. The TSA is simply the government controlling its citizens under a guise of keeping us safe. It needs to end.


New ways to deal with peanut allergies My little cousin told her mom in second grade she did not want a peanut butter sandwich for lunch. This shocked my aunt because peanut butter was my cousin’s favorite food. When pressed further, my cousin said if she brought a peanut butter sandwich to school, she would have to sit at a separate table in the back of the room and be away from all of her friends. So, instead, she didn’t want to bring a peanut butter sandwich to school. This was the school’s response to the prevalence of peanut allergies in the United States since the onset of the 21st century. However, recent science and guidelines suggest direct contact with peanut powder at earlier ages could prevent these allergies, and I am 100-percent behind them. Between 1997 and 2008, the number of children suffering from peanut allergies has almost tripled. This, coupled with the fact that peanuts are one of the leading allergens that cause anaphylaxis, makes peanut allergies nothing to scoff at. This has led to the creation of many programs by schools to prevent reactions. One example is the no-peanut-butter-sandwich rule. I understand this was inconvenient for my aunt and a lot of other parents, but as someone who suffers from severe food allergies, I appreciate it more than anything. Peanuts seem to be in literally everything. Almost no processed food has been made in a factory that does not have contact with peanut or traces of peanut. The fear of cross contamination alone means for a lot of people these products

aren’t available. Moreover, the products that are available are prohibitively expensive, so many people cannot afford them. This is why I was overjoyed at the recent finding by the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Disease, which said peanut allergies could be avoided by putting peanut powder or extract in babies’ puree. This reversed an almost 15 year guideline that states high-risk allergens like peanuts should be avoided to prevent any symptoms. Because I’m not a parent I know my opinion may not be seen as a strong indicator of how serious this is. However, as someone who has undergone an anaphylactic attack, I am very intrigued by this new development. Firstly, it divides children by level of risk. Lower-risk individuals can be introduced to peanuts relatively late under their parents’ supervision. Higher-risk kids would be exposed earlier under medical supervision. While experts need to run more experiments to be sure, I am very hopeful that this new system will work. Food allergies are horrendous because they make you terrified of one of the few things that you need to keep you alive. With common allergens like peanuts it’s difficult to be confident trying new foods. This has the potential to make children safer, and though I am skeptical right now, I am very invested in seeing how this plays out.


Know your medical future New screening technology lets us know what’s to come When it comes to uncommon characteristics, “It’s in my genes” is the classic explanation for everything from weight gain to sexuality. In recent years geneticists have been able to test people to see whether they’re genetically predisposed to certain diseases. Researchers from Boston University have taken this a step further through advanced medical screening. They’ve developed a convenient blood test that can determine what diseases you’re likely to get and predict your life expectancy. This sort of development may at first sound like the dystopian world of “Gattaca,” but in reality this has significant potential to help people prepare themselves for illness. It does, however, pose some significant

drawbacks. Imagine you went to the doctor, took a test, and they told you that within the next 20 years you’re likely to develop Parkinson’s disease. That would change your life. You’d be able to plan years in advance and potentially undergo treatment to prevent disease from happening. At the same time, you’d constantly be worried and stressed about the slightest sign of illness. If someone told you you’d only live to 65 with your current eating, you might be motivated to get in shape and try to live longer, or you could go on a crazy hedonistic binge at age 64. It really depends on the individual, which is why this sort of development is more complicated than it may seem at first.

We could make some destructive choices knowing that our end might be near.Insurance companies also stand to muddle this development. After all, how does an insurance company make money off someone who knows they’re going to get a life-threatening disease at a certain age? Test recipients could just wait until they’re at an age where they’re likely to develop a condition, and then sign up for insurance. Or, if they know when they’re going to die, they could buy a life insurance policy the year before. The basic idea of insurance is betting you’ll get sick or betting you’ll die. If you’re right, the company pays health care costs to you or your beneficiary. If not, they keep your money. This means the lobby against these sort of tests is

going to be enormous, and insurance companies may classify the results as preexisting conditions and deny people insurance. Because of these ramifications, it’s unlikely this kind of genetic testing is going to actually become mainstream. It’s a tragedy for a great many people because this could be extremely helpful. It can give people insight into their health they didn’t have before. If it does take off, and you’re ever thinking about getting tested, it’s important to take your mental state into consideration. In some cases, it may actually be better to leave your medical future a mystery. Are you the type of person to use the knowledge to try to improve your life, or are you inclined to let bad results get to you?


Obama’s dream retirement business is a reality There’s something to be said about a simple white Tshirt. It’s universally flattering, and nearly every human being has some rendition of the wardrobe staple in his or her own closet. That includes President Barack Obama. It seems as though the white crew neck has struck a cord with Obama. In July New York Times reporter Michael D. Shear wrote the compelling narrative, “Obama After Dark: The Precious Hours Alone.” The piece described an entirely different man from what the United States was accustomed to. This man enjoys staying up late to watch ESPN and play “Words With Friends” on his iPad. This man has his distinct rituals, coming in the form of seven slightly salted almonds. What is this man’s dream? He will no longer have to

make decisions. This, sadly, will be true in a week’s time. This after-hours Obama wants nothing more than to move to Hawaii and open up a T-shirt shack that only sells one variety: white and medium. Artist and writer Emily Spivack received this message loud and clear, and she took it to heart. In a shopping center in Honolulu, right next to a Bed Bath & Beyond, is a seemingly ordinary pop-up shop called Medium White Tee. Inside the small space is a circular rack of white T-shirts, all with the price tag of $44 because Obama was the 44th president. All proceeds go to charity, and the store operates on a purely voluntary basis. The little shop, adorned with nautical touches of canvas sling-back chairs and leafy

green palm trees, is an off-site guest exhibit for the Honolulu Museum of Art. “It’s meant to evoke the weight of decision-making and discernment responsibilities that every leader is saddled with,” Spivack said to Quartz. The white medium T-shirt, arguably a timeless classic, fits seamlessly into the locality of Obama’s fantasy retirement business. Hawaii, in its own way, is like a white T-shirt. It’s a warm and fuzzy hug, an oasis from unnecessary burdens, a society built on values that really matter. Shopping at a store and choosing which fashions you’d like are all pompous luxuries that are inherently materialistic. When shopping at Obama’s T-shirt shack, there is simply no way to be indecisive.

Jessica Karl is a senior in English.

It is the selling and buying of one item, the innocent transfer of goods. The medium white T-shirt is the U.S., absent of all the unnecessary fluff we surround ourselves with each day. We unnecessarily burden ourselves with microdecisions. What lipstick shade will look best with this top? Should I walk or be lazy and take the bus? How should my hair look — straightened or curled? The next time you’re flummoxed by the simplest question, remember Obama’s medium white T-shirt. This man, our president, has had to make far more difficult choices than we will have to make in our lifetime.

Fashion predictions prove true this spring


Professor Dave Stryker and the jazz quartet performed Thursday evening in Bear’s Place as part of “Jazz Fables.”

‘Jazz Fables’ told at Bear’s By Emily Jones | @emkkjones

In the back room of Bear’s Place Dave Stryker counted down from three, and music filled the air. All four players in the Dave Stryker Quartet — also fulltime or adjunct professors in IU’s Jacobs School of Music — had come to perform as part of Bear’s weekly “Jazz Fables” series. Stryker and his jazz quartet performed Thursday in Bear’s Place. The group opened with two of Stryker’s original compositions, “Came To Believe” and “Every Dark Street.” Stryker, who has released 26 CDs, said he remembers time spent in Harlem, New York City, with saxophonist Stanley Turrentine as a key influence on his style. "‘Messin’ with Mr. T’— that’s for Stanley,” the guitarist said of his album released last year.

As Thursday night’s show progressed, numbers became more convoluted and solos longer. Drummer Steve Houghton, eyes closed, played solely by feel. “We just try to play together as much as we can,” said Houghton, referring to himself and the quartet’s saxophonist, Walter Smith III, who splits his time between Bloomington and Los Angeles to manage a recording career. The members of the quartet this week included Smith on third-tenor saxophone, Stryker as guitarist, Jeremy Allen on bass and Houghton playing the drums. “Jazz Fables” creator and director David Miller then introduced Smith’s recent composition “Apollo.” At a point in Smith’s solo, audience member Ed Perkins passed a note to his wife seated beside him. “These guys are really good,” it read. Perkins, a Bloomington

resident, said he’d long enjoyed the “Jazz Fables” series after retirement. “It’s hard to believe the level of talent you see here, and tonight?” Perkins said. “These guys are incredible recording artists but also educators. They’re carrying on the tradition to students across the street at Jacobs.” Miller said the series has run almost every Thursday night since its inception in 1989 and offers excellent exposure to undergraduate and graduate jazz performers. “This is one of the finest jazz groups that has come together from the IU faculty,” Miller said. “The collaborations that happen — I mean, it’s incredible. It would be impossible to do this without the Jazz Studies Program’s cooperation.” Miller — who is the master of ceremonies for the performances — said maintaining a relationship

“This is one of the finest jazz groups that has come together from the IU faculty. The collaborations that happen — I mean, it’s incredible. It would be impossible to do this without the Jazz Studies Program’s cooperation.” David Miller, creator and director of “Jazz Fables”

with the Jazz Studies Program since 1969 has built up the series to what it is today. He said Bear’s proximity to the Jacobs school has also been an important factor for word-of-mouth advertisement about the series within the school. “We’re still here 27 years later, so we must be doing something right,” Miller said.

Whether you’re ready or not, prepare yourself. Denim is back and it comes in all sizes and shapes — jean skirts, jean jackets and jean jackets paired with light or dark wash blue jeans. Women’s Wear Daily, a fashion industry trade journal, predicted the rise of denim, and the runways have followed suit. WWD reports that Vetements’ pre-fall 2017 collection contains reconstructed denim pieces, and various designers from Kate Spade to ATM have included light denim dresses in their pre-fall collections as well. Denim can be intimidating, especially when it comes to mixing washes and finding the perfect fitting jeans, but as celebrities have continued to show us, the fashion rules are a thing of the past. White shoes, jeans and bags after Labor Day have always been a huge fashion faux pas, but all bets are off. This is the case when it comes to mixing light and dark washes. Normally, light washes on top paired with a dark wash jean on bottom has been the standard because the eye keeps moving and allows for a gradual continuation of descending hues. Celebrities and fashionistas are creating their own fashion rules and ignoring the old ones. Fashion is all about self-expression anyway. Jean skirts are also going to explode onto runways this year, and the early 2000s trend is making a comeback. A jean skirt paired with an oversized, flowy, white tank will give you the Hollister beach-babe vibe you are looking for. When looking to accessorize with your denim outfit, my advice would be to keep it simple. If paired with a neutral colored heel, bag, and some simple, silver jewelry, heads

will turn. This street style chic outfit is perfect for class, minus the heel, or a casual lunch date with friends. With awards season picking up, I cannot help but remember the denim vibes Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake gave us at the 2002 Video Music Awards. I can only imagine what the ex-power couple would be wearing this year as the magical moment turns 15 years old just in time for denim to make its comeback. Another fashion trend that WWD has predicted for 2017 is the rise of the bell-sleeved shirt. This has taken the place of the offthe-shoulder top, and celebrities like Jamie Chung are showing us how it is done. This top is perfect for spring when it is not warm enough for an off-theshoulder top quite yet, but you are still looking to showcase your trendy style. Pair this feminine top with dark wash jeans or a light, simple skirt, and everyone will be green with envy — or blue because army green-colored jeans are a thing of the past. Another trend to be on the lookout for is adding pops of color to your neutral toned or all black outfits. A bright pink quilted bag is sure to break up your off-white-toned pantsuit for an interview or presentation. Adding brightly colored shoes is also an option because it adds the perfect amount of contrast to any monochromatic outfit. Style icons such as Rachel Zoe are also predicting corset belting and white shoes will be huge. Whether you are looking to amp up your spring style or add a few new pieces, 2017 will for sure be the year to do it.

Ivy Tech Waldron plans to stage masque musical show From IDS reports

The Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center will open its theater space for a concert that plays on a classical genre. Alchymy Viols and Bloomington Early Music will present “Cavalli’s Masque” at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 14 in the Ivy Tech John Waldron

Arts Center Auditorium, according to a news release. Alchymy Viols is a musical group composed of Joanna Blendulf, Julie Elhard, Wendy Gillespie, Erica Rubis, Philip Spray and Craig Trompeter. The Indianapolis-based group will perform the concert that reflects 17th-century masque entertainment.

Masque entertainment was a festive form of court entertainment, performed during the 16th and 17th centuries for nobles or royalty. Traditional masque shows involved dancing, singing and acting. This category of performance flourished in Europe, particularly Italy. The free show, written

by Phil Spray and Catherine Turocy, follows the struggles associated with love. Rebecca Choate Beasley will be singing soprano, Nathan Medley will sing countertenor, and Lindsey Adams will sing the part of the mezzosoprano, according to the release. Music and instrumentation in the show will pull

from Francesco Cavalli, Cima, Benedetto Ferrari, Monteverdi and G. Strozzi. The show will incorporate a variety of instruments, dance, costume and drama and be directed by Turocy, the director of the New York Baroque Dance Company. Bloomington Early Music, a nonprofit organization dedicated to presenting

historically informed performance art pieces in Bloomington and south central Indiana, is supporting the show. The concert is sponsored by Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation and the Christel DeHaan Family Foundation. Sanya Ali

Dancers soar during ‘Roots to Wings’ ROOTS TO WINGS Tickets $10-50 7:30 p.m. Friday 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday 2 p.m. Sunday Ruth N. Halls Theatre

By Austin Faulds | @aafaulds

New York City dance company Gallim Dance has been actively involved with the IU dance community this year, hosting workshops with IU contemporary dancers in the fall semester and planning a performance at IU Auditorium this spring. For IU senior and dancer Maggie Black, being able to work with a company as significant as Gallim Dance proved to be inspiring and helpful when preparing for the “Roots to Wings” concert, the program’s annual show. “It’s really cool to know what I’m doing now is possible when I see them, and they’re in person, and they’re human and, like, interact with them on that level,” Black said. The 2017 production of “Roots to Wings,” set to premiere Friday night in the Ruth N. Halls Theatre, will feature choreography from seven different choreographers. There will be three more performances of “Roots to Wings” following the debut. Two of the choreographers, Andrea Miller and José Limón, are from Gallim Dance, and the other five are dance instructors from IU. For this annual contemporary dance concert the program will be split into nine different pieces. IU dance


Contemporary dance students practice during rehearsal for “Roots to Wings” winter dance concert.

instructors Elizabeth Shea and Nyama McCarthyBrown will choreograph two pieces each, and Miller, Limón, Selene Carter, Iris Rosa and George Pinney will choreograph one piece each. Both Black and fellow “Roots to Wings” dancer Stephanie Gunter said they have fond memories of working with Shea in the past. With “Roots to Wings” being her third show with Shea, Gunter said Shea is great at communicating with the other dancers. “It’s always great working with Liz,” Gunter said. “I take her class like every day, so her movement is very comfortable for me. She always incorporates her dancers’ ideas and thoughts.” In the performance, Black and Gunter, both contemporary dance majors, perform

three different pieces involving Shea and Miller. Black said she is grateful for being able to work with dancers who have so much prestige within the dancing community. “I’ve been pretty fortunate in my life to grow up with people like that have done a lot of different things and who have been on Broadway,” Black said. Gunter said she found it difficult at first to adapt to Miller’s style of choreography, which Gunter compares to the Israel-style of dancing known as gaga based on Miller’s emphasis on imagery and visualization. Black said she and the other dancers involved in Miller’s piece, the opening piece to “Roots to Wings,” began working on the choreography during the second week of fall semester.

Black said it was difficult to retain what she had learned each week for the show and always found herself trying to conjure the same mindset she had when learning the movements, a process she said she considered “grueling.” “I think it’s hard trying to keep information in your body for months and trying to remember that experience you had,” Black said. Regardless, Gunter said these challenges acted as a learning experience and helped her discover new styles and techniques with each performance. “I can’t think of any true revelation I had for myself personally, but more of just an ongoing discovery of how I like to move,” Gunter said. Gunter said the term “contemporary dance” is so vague that it always can mean a different style and interpretation with every performance. She said this always allows for more room to learn. “Every choreographer is different. Every piece is different,” Gunter said. “It’s not the kind of style that is all the same.”

Hoosier track looks to stay perfect in 2017 By Austin Ghirardelli @a_ghirardelli

The men’s track team will be in action this Saturday as it faces off against long-time rival Purdue. IU gained some early confidence by defeating Tennessee last week. IU Coach Ron Helmer said he saw last week’s performance as a sign of progression and would like to build on that heading into Saturday’s meet. “What I hope is that it is validation for the work we have been doing,” Helmer said. “We started talking last summer and early fall about what we needed to do as individuals, so we, as a team, could start to grow and be the team that we want to be.” IU’s quality start suggests it might be heading in the right direction, but Purdue will be a tough test that might reveal more of what this team is made of in 2017. “We don’t need a lot to get excited about running the meet against Purdue, but you can’t beat a good team like Purdue unless you get an all-across-theboard team effort,” Helmer said. Helmer said there are


Duane Goldman watches a match with his son, senior Garrett Goldman, at a playoff meet against Appalacian State on Feb. 21, 2016.

IU looks to take down Purdue and I hope they are able to fill the place. It would be a lot of fun.” Before Friday the Hoosiers had almost two weeks off to get healthy. The break was helpful in giving the wrestlers time to address some injuries and be as healthy as possible heading into the most difficult portion of the season. Heading into the match the Hoosiers will have a new nationally ranked team member. Freshman 174-pound wrestler Devin Skatzka capped off 2016 with a fifthplace finish at the Midlands Tournament, which Goldman called a prestigious event.

By Ryan Schuld | @rschuld

To open their stretch of eight straight Big Ten matches before the postseason begins, the Hoosiers will take the mat in a setting — Mackey Arena in West Lafayette, Indiana — usually used for basketball. IU Coach Duane Goldman has been talking to his team about the rivalry and wrestling in Mackey Arena. “They have been promoting it really hard up there, and I have seen lots of advertisements,” Goldman said. “Purdue Coach Tony Ersland is really hoping for a good crowd,


With the strong showing, FloWrestling has put the freshman wrestler at No. 18 in his respective weight class, which has helped Skatzka feel more self-assured. “I think it is really building my confidence to see I am right there with all those guys,” Skatzka said. “In my weight class everyone is really close, there is not too many standout guys, and that shows I can wrestle with just about anyone in my weight class.” Skatzka said he is excited to wrestle in front of such a large crowd and get a true feel for the IU-Purdue rivalry while also trying to add another win

A win against IU’s rival would be valuable to Goldman and his wrestlers, and they are looking forward to a great match and chance to compete. “It would be great, it’s the Purdue dual so it’s the biggest dual of the year for both teams,” Goldman said. “It’s a little different in that it is really early this year, being the first match after Christmas — it is usually a little later in the season. Nevertheless, it should be a great display of wrestling for the fans, and we are looking forward to a great match.”

BPD institutes less-lethal bean-bag guns By Jack Evans | @JackHEvans

The woman had thrown the knife down, but no matter how many times the officers told her, she wouldn’t stop reaching behind her back. “Let’s see your hands,” an officer said, according to a police report relayed Wednesday by Bloomington Police Department Lt. John Kovach. The woman, 26-yearold Consuela Hallal, called police Tuesday morning to her South Rockport Road apartment. She said she’d stabbed herself. However, officers found her unharmed on her bed with the knife beside her. She’d already touched the longbladed kitchen knife when they’d asked her not to, and now she wouldn’t stop grasping at some unseen object behind her. The officers said they had to subdue her somehow, but this didn’t call for lethal force, and if she had another weapon — they later found a hammer on a plastic nightstand she’d obscured — a close-range tactic like using pepper spray or a baton could put an officer in danger. They had access to a new option — less-lethal launchers — shotguns modified to


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 million facility that offers the latest car-wash technology and environmentally friendly systems, including a water-reclamation system that cleans and reuses the water. The building also uses LED lighting inside and outside the car wash. New employee Adam Wigington said he used to drive by the new facility as it was being built. He applied once he caught word that a Crew Carwash was going in. “I knew of Crew and

fire bean-bag rounds rather than bullets — instituted in late December by BPD. The round hit Hallal in the leg, and officers cuffed her and took her to IU Health Bloomington Hospital for a mental health evaluation. When the hospital released her Wednesday, officers arrested her on felony charges of battery, intimidation and criminal recklessness. The new launchers provide at least a partial solution to a problem the department has faced, BPD Capt. Steve Kellams said. Batons and pepper spray aren’t as lethal as bullets, but they do require officers to get within a couple of feet of potentially dangerous subjects. “These are going to be used at the same time we’d use a baton strike on someone, but you don’t have to be at close range,” he said. In addition to officer safety, the distance allows for more time to make decisions in particularly volatile situations, Kellams said. If a raging suspect is high on a drug like PCP, they may not be deterred by the pain inflicted by a less-lethal weapon. That extra space means officers have a little extra time to decide what to do next. Longer-range less-lethal

weapons aren’t entirely new to the BPD. The department already had a pair of 40-millimeter multilaunchers, pieces of weaponry equipped to fire gas canisters and sponge grenades, foam-and-plastic rounds often used for riot control. However, Kellams said only the department’s critical response team members were trained to use the multilaunchers, which meant if police wanted to use one they’d have to hope one of those officers was around or wait for one to become available. In May 2015 the Task Force on 21st Century Policing established by President Obama released its final report on modern law enforcement practices. In the wake of high-profile shootings of unarmed black men and boys by officers, the report recommended a host of new or updated procedures and practices, including less-lethal weaponry. “Policies and procedures must change, but so should the weaponry,” it read. It noted how studies have shown the weaponry to be effective in reducing injuries to both officers and civilians. It was one of the recommendations BPD took note of when reviewing the report.

liked going to them,” Wigington said. Wigington said he already really enjoys coming into work. He said Crew Carwash is flexible with schedules and is a fun environment to work in. Crew Carwash prides itself on employees who interact with customers, Trusnik said. Rather than paying at a machine before pulling in, like at many smaller car washes, an employee will take money and mark the car for the appropriate wash. Once it has pulled up to the entrance, another

employee sprays the car down before it enters the car wash. The new facility also features the company’s staple stuffed animals throughout the automated carwash. Kids really like the stuffed animals, and it adds to Crew’s friendly experience, Trusnik said. Although the facility is high quality, Sitav Elturan, a Bloomington local, said she has concerns about the location. “I never go over there,” Elturan said. Elturan said she is busy with work and family, and


BPD’s new less-lethal launchers are modified shotguns that fire bean bags.

“We spent all last year going pillar-by-pillar and looking at what we did well and what we need to improve on,” Kellams said. As it turns out, the department’s solution was in storage. After an infamous 1997 shootout in North Hollywood exposed the ineffectiveness of standard-issue shotguns, departments across the country shifted to using patrol rifles, Kellams said. That left about 20 shotguns in BPD’s possession she never seems to find time to wash her car. Even just after purchasing her Subaru Forester, she couldn’t find time to get it washed. Elturan said if she did go to Crew Carwash it would have to be while she was already in that area of Bloomington for another errand. Crew Carwash was founded 69 years ago in Fort Wayne, Indiana. As one of the largest exterioronly carwash companies in the United States, Crew Carwash has received many awards, including Top Small Workplace by the Wall Street Journal.

with nobody to use them. So BPD modified them to fire bean-bags, and now four or five of them are assigned to officers on each shift, which is a sharp increase in the number of less-lethal weapons available in the department at a given time. Kellams said this step forward isn’t radical in the law enforcement community but is an improvement. “It’s old technology, but it’s new to us,” he said.


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 also told police the resident had stunned her with the Taser on her jacket and cheek. Meanwhile, the resident who called told police he didn’t own a Taser, and he and other witnesses said the woman on the porch had arrived with a Taser. No parties wanted to pursue charges. The man and woman were advised they’d been trespassing. Police said officers probably returned the Taser to the woman, as the report

He’s careful to not call these weapons non-lethal. A bean-bag round to the eye could kill someone just as a poorly placed baton could, he said. It’s not a be-all-end-all solution either, Kellams said. BPD wants to continue to research other less-lethal weaponry, including electrical less-lethal weaponry like Tasers. It’s progress that deserves more thought. “This is just another tool in the toolbox,” he said. doesn’t say otherwise. Broken windows policing Robert Lasley, 39, called police Tuesday afternoon to report property damage in the form of a broken window on his front door. When the responding officer returned to his car to enter the complaint info, he noticed Lasley had a warrant out from Marion County for his arrest on a felony methamphetamine possession. He was arrested and taken to the Monroe County Correctional Center. Jack Evans
