A male juvenile attending a summer music camp at the Jacobs School of Music attacked another camper Friday morning in Merrill Hall, stabbing her with an unknown sharp object. The female victim received multiple superficial wounds, said IU Police Department Capt. Craig Munroe in a press release. She was taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital for treatment. No other students or staff were involved with the altercation. An IU emergency alert was issued at 10:17 a.m. after the incident occurred. It warned a subject armed with a knife was reported near Merrill Hall. Munroe said the suspect was taken into custody soon after the incident. Munroe said police did not know why the stabbing occurred. The incident is still under investigation.

A few weeks from now, in a movie theater not far, far away, IU Cinema is set to screen the entire original “Star Wars” trilogy. The cinema announced the movie marathon via a promotional graphic on its Twitter account in June, captioned “SOON” with the emoji of a pair of eyes. All three original “Star Wars” films — “A New Hope,” “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi” — will screen back-to-back-to-back on August 24 at IU Cinema. A screening time has yet to be announced. A ticket for all three films costs $20 and will be available for purchase online or at the box office at a date yet to be announced. “IU Cinema is thrilled to welcome everyone back to campus this Aug. w/ a special engagement screening marathon of ‘Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope,’ ‘Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back,’ and ‘Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi,’” reads fine print at the bottom of a promotional flier. “These rare digital screenings of the special edition versions of the original Star Wars trilogy will help IU Cinema kick off Indiana University’s Bicentennial celebration. See these films as they were intended to be seen, in a THX® Certified Cinema!" The special editions are rereleased versions of the three original “Star Wars” movies supervised by George Lucas to include altered sequences, deleted scenes and newer visual effects. Though often maligned for minorly altering the beloved originals, they are the only commercially available versions of the “Star Wars” movies and likely the versions most fans have seen. “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2017. The film jump-started one of the most lucrative and culturally significant franchises in cinematic history, which will conclude this December with the ninth chronological installment, “The Rise of Skywalker.”

Dunham will return to IU for new season By Matt Cohen mdc1@iu.edu | @Matt_Cohen_

Junior Elijah Dunham made IU baseball wait on his decision. 10 Hoosiers were selected in the 2019 MLB Draft, and all made a decision on whether to sign or return soon after the draft.  Dunham didn’t.  He was selected in the 40th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates, but Dunham announced Friday on Twitter he would return to Bloomington for his junior season.  Dunham broke out during his sophomore season despite injuries keeping him out for much of non-conference play. In his first start after returning from injury, Dunham hit a grand slam.  Dunham started 42 games and hit .310 this spring. His batting average is the highest on the team for anyone appearing in over 20 games. Dunham had eight home runs and 29 RBIs, both top-six marks on the team. He was named to All-Big Ten third team.  In the final weeks of the season, Dunham had the team’s hottest bat. On May 3, Dunham had a .242 batting average. He brought it up to .310 by June 2, doing so in the team’s most important games. He hit .556 over the final week of the regular season as IU clinched the Big Ten regular season title. Dunham had a hit in all three of IU’s regional games as well as three RBIs.  Dunham has been playing with the Ocean State Waves of the New England Collegiate Baseball League this summer, one of the top summer leagues in the nation. In 89 at-bats, Dunham is hitting .326 with three home runs and 15 RBIs. With a lineup depleted of stars like Matt Lloyd and Matt Gorski, Dunham will be one of the most important returning hitters. He’s a lock to be in the opening day lineup in 2020. The only question then will be if he stays in the outfield, or moves back to first base where he spent time as a freshman.

As second place at 11th USA International Harp Competition was announced Saturday night, the only competitor without an award held back tears of joy. French harpist Mélanie Laurent mouthed, "I'm sorry," to the runner-up before she stood, blushing but composed, to accept first prize. The 11th USA International Harp Competition took place from July 3-13 at the Musical Arts Center. She received a $6,000 cash prize, a trophy, offers to perform around the world and a Lyon and Healy Concert Grand Harp estimated at $55,000. "I am very happy," Laurent said. "I can't find another word, I think I've said 'happy' a thousand times tonight." The 23-year-old has played the harp since she was six. She said she began preparing two and a half years ago. "I organized my life around the competition," Laurent said. Laurent said she quit drinking alcohol or tea so she could stay clear-headed and focused on practicing.

Executive director of the USA International Harp Competition Erin Brooker-Miller said the competition is one of the two most prestigious classical harp competitions in the world. "For them, it's like the Olympics," Brooker-Miller said.

“I am very happy. I can’t find another word, I think I’ve said ‘happy’ a thousand times tonight.” Mélanie Laurent, French harpist and International Harp Competition first prize winner

The USA International Harp Competition began 30 years ago and takes place every three years, Brooker-Miller said. Contestants ages 18-32 can apply. Sixty five people applied to be in this year's competition, and only 40 were invited to the event. Contestants perform in stages, and people are cut at each stage. Mélanie Laurent, Valerio Lisci and Mathilde Wauters were the top-three finalists.

Parking pass limit challenges some library staff By Claire Peters clapete@iu.edu | @claire_peterss

Parking in downtown Bloomington can be a hassle, but new retracted parking passes for the Monroe County Public Library may put employees at strong financial risk. Because of rising parking costs, the City of Bloomington is cutting down the amount of parking passes available to the library's 140 employees from 50 to 12.  “There’s no increase in pay to make up for it, we’re just expected to absorb those costs,” said Shannon Bowman-Sarkisian, a library employee and IU graduate student. “We’re left on our own to solve it.” Although she does not have a parking pass and chooses to take the bus, Bowman-Sarkisian said making low-income and parttime employees who don’t live near public transportation pay for parking every single day is a big financial strain. “The city did not prepare for this,” Bowman-Sarkisian said. “It feels like being a part-time worker in Bloomington is a constant reminder of how disposable we are.”  She said she knew a couple of co-workers who might leave the library because of the issue.

“Do we want a diverse staff or just people who are wealthy enough to work there?” BowmanSarkisian said. Some employees at the library  are actively working against the reduced number of passes, such as Sam Ott, a steward for the Monroe County section of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees trade union. The common council  voted to raise parking prices in September of 2018, but it went into effect at the beginning of June, Ott said. “In many cases, people don’t have modes of alternate transportation,” council member Jim Sims said Sept. 19, 2018 at a city council meeting.  “We’re talking about hopes and couldbe’s and might-be’s, parking could still be a problem for them.” The library employees were told by the city about six months ago the library would subsidize the difference until August 19. The city did not specify what would happen after that date.  “We knew something was coming when the board decided it, but without specifics, we knew it would be hard to fight for,” Ott said.  This isn't the first time parking issues have arisen for the Monroe County Public Library.

Monroe County Public Library is located at 303 E. Kirkwood Ave. Because of rising parking costs, the City of Bloomington is cutting down the amount of parking passes available to the library's 140 employees from 50 to 12.

In the 1990s, the city tried to move the public library away from its downtown location after it discovered there were limited parking spaces, but then-Mayor Tomi Allison proposed multiple solutions. “She suggested that library board members consider a multi-story parking garage as the solution to one of the problems the library is facing — inadequate

parking,” according to a Bloomington Herald-Times article from 1992. A proposed parking garage was never built, contributing to current parking issues. The library remained downtown after support from the public and city council members. SEE LIBRARY, PAGE 4

Woman charged for stealing approximately $1,500 of items from acquaintance By Ellen Hine emhine@iu.edu | @ellenmhine

ELLEN HINE

Police arrested a 40-yearold woman for burglary after she and an unidentified man stole approximately $1,500 worth of items from an acquaintance. The victim called police around 2:10 p.m. after he observed Jamie Smith entering his home around 7:25 a.m. Friday using his home security system, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Brandon Siniard said. Smith used a key to enter, but the victim claimed he had never given her a key. Smith and the other suspect took a black RCA tablet, a 32-inch television, a watch, a speaker, Bluetooth head-

phones and clothing items valued at approximately $1,500. The two left the home around 8:35 a.m., Siniard said. Police made contact with Smith over the phone after speaking with the victim, Siniard said. She told police she had gone to the victim’s residence with a friend to retrieve items that belonged to her. She said it was the friend’s idea to steal the items. Siniard said police arranged an interview with Smith at 9 p.m. at the BPD station. Police interviewed her and arrested her on burglary charges at the station. Smith did not give any information to identify the other suspect.

From left to right, Abby Ang, Jeannine Bell, Dan Conkle and Jane Henegar wait to speak June 11 in City Hall. The four spoke on a panel about potential legal issues for the Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market regarding allegations that a market vendor is run by white supremacists.

Legal panel tackles farmers’ market By Ellen Hine emhine@iu.edu | @ellenmhine

Schooner Creek Farm was never mentioned by name at a Thursday night panel to discuss potential legal issues for removing a vendor from the Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market. Still, it was clear throughout the panel which vendor was in question. The panel was the latest in a series of responses to a letter sent to the farmers’ market in June alleging the owners of Schooner Creek Farm, Sarah Dye and Douglas Mackey, were members of the white supremacist group Identity Evropa. The over-200 cosigners demanded the farmers’ market remove Schooner Creek Farm. As Bloomington director of public engagement and the panel’s moderator, Mary Catherine Carmichael, introduced the panel, she said the market was a community asset. “It’s wholly appropriate that we wish to protect this asset from any threats to its success and continue to work to improve it,” Carmichael said. The farmers’ market has maintained it cannot remove vendors for their personal beliefs because it would violate their First Amendment rights. Several attendees at a June 17 Farmers’ Market Advisory Council meeting challenged this position, discussing how the state of Virginia had fired two police officers for their ties to white supremacist groups.  If that meeting was for Bloomington citizens to share their concerns, Thursday’s panel was for them to ask questions. Carmichael asked questions that had been aggregated from comments from previous public meetings and emails submitted to the city, and attendees submitted handwritten questions on index cards. 

“It’s wholly appropriate that we wish to protect this asset from any threats to its success and continue to work to improve it.” Mary Catherine Carmichael, Bloomington director of public engagement

Panelists included Abby Ang, an IU Ph.D. student who sent the Schooner Creek Farm letter, Jeannine Bell, an IU Maurer School of Law professor who specializes in hate crimes, Dan Conkle, a Maurer School of Law professor emeritus and an adjunct professor of religious studies, and Jane Henegar, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana. The panel answered a wide range of questions about the city’s responsibilities under the First Amendment and addressing hate speech and racism

in Bloomington. Ang said she was encouraged by the bigger conversations people are having about inclusivity at the market. “This issue is far beyond just this one vendor at the market,” she said. Bell said while most First Amendment discussions assume everyone will reasonably listen to each other’s ideas, she said extremists will not engage in an exchange of ideas. “They’re set entirely in what they think about me and people who look like me, and they don’t want any exchange,” Bell said. “So much for the marketplace of ideas.” Bell, Conkle and Henegar agreed the city could not legally remove a vendor for its beliefs or affiliation with hate groups. Henegar said if a municipality tried to remove vendors for their beliefs, it could face a lawsuit from the ACLU.

A police interview about a theft from a car turned into an arrest on burglary charges when police found stolen items on the suspect. Stephen Krebs, 27, has been charged with burglary, possession of a syringe and possession of methamphetamine. Bloomington Police Department Lieutenant Ryan Pedigo said police searched for Krebs on around 11:15 p.m. Monday to question him about his involvement in an earlier theft from a car.  Before Krebs got into the police car to go to the station, Pedigo said police searched his person and belongings. They found a syringe used for meth, an XBox gaming system and games and another man’s driver’s license, debit card and uncashed check, Pedigo said.  Police contacted the man identified on the sto-

“In the American system, we have - I think it’s fair to say, for right or for wrong - the almost radical protection of speech, including speech that most people regard as highly offensive.”

len items, and he informed them he was traveling in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He told police he was unaware if his home has been broken into. Pedigo said police then went to the man’s home and saw an open window and muddy boot prints.  Krebs initially told police he found the items in a dumpster behind Nick’s English Hut. After police told him they knew the man’s home had been broken into, Krebs admitted to the burglary.  Krebs planned to sell the items to buy meth, Pedigo said.  Krebbs told police he checked  potential targets’ mailboxes before entering a home. If the mailbox is overflowing with mail, Krebs told police he assumed the owner is out of town.  Pedigo said police will look into similar burglaries to see if they have any connection to Krebs.

In response, Ang asked what the city would do to combat racism within the Bloomington community. Carmichael also asked what responsibility a city has to make public spaces feel safe. Henegar said increased physical security at the market might not make people feel safer.   “First of all, we, the ACLU, always want to remind government to be mindful of the effects of over-policing or even tipping into militarization,” Henegar said.  Instead, Bell suggested the city could talk with vendors individually about their experiences and safety. Henegar said the city could send in testers to the market to observe conditions, similar to those used to investigate violations of the Fair Housing Act.  Both Paula McDevitt, director of the Parks and Recreation Department, and Beverly Calender-Anderson, director of the Community and Family Resources Department, said their departments would be holding future events to discuss issues of inclusivity.   McDevitt said the Farmers’ Advisory Council had also created a new “Broadening Inclusion” subcommittee to address citizens’ questions and concerns.  Other questions took on matters of privacy, such as why the market does not allow anonymous complaints against vendors. Ang said some people feel uncom-

fortable sharing their experiences since farming communities can be tight-knit and suggested a third-party for complaints. “I think this town can get pretty gossipy,” Ang said. “I can assume that people would be afraid it would get around, and then they’ll be ostracized for that.” The panel discussed the legality of people recording or taking pictures in a public place. Some protesters expressed concerns at the June 17 meeting about being recorded by the Schooner Creek Farm vendors and their supporters. While it is legal to record or take pictures in a public space, Bell said city workers at the farmers’ market can let people recording know they are making others uncomfortable.  One audience member asked why Nazi propaganda is protected under the First Amendment.  “Lies are protected by

the First Amendment,” Bell said. “Strange but true.” Conkle said in other Western countries, hate speech is illegal. However, many court cases in the United States have protected offensive speech. “In the American system, we have — I think it’s fair to say, for right or for wrong — the almost radical protection of speech, including speech that most people regard as highly offensive,” he said. The final question asked how people can effectively respond to extremism. Bell said she thinks many assumed white supremacy was not an issue before the 2016 presidential election. To combat extremism, she suggested organizing against it and voting in elections.  Henegar said fighting extremism requires consistent vigilance.  “We can’t censor it, but we can fight it,” she said.

Police arrested a 48-year-old man for disorderly conduct and dealing a counterfeit substance Friday after complaints about him showing a knife in public. A complainant called police at approximately 2:30 p.m. to report Curtis Davis had been walking with a knife around the corner of North College Avenue and West 10th Street, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Brandon Siniard said. The complainant claimed Davis was spinning the knife and holding it between his two fingers. He told police Davis had followed him and other witnesses into a parking garage and began hitting a dumpster with the knife.

When officers arrived at the scene, Siniard said they observed Davis standing by the dumpster and waving the knife in front of his face. They ordered him to drop the knife. Davis told police he had found the knife in the dumpster. Davis was taken to the BPD station after being initially charged for disorderly conduct for hitting the dumpster with the knife, Siniard said. At the station, police found two bags of a green leafy substance that was not marijuana on his person. Given how the substance was packaged, police determined Davis was going to sell the product and charged him with dealing a counterfeit substance.

POLITICAL POWERS

ILLUSTRATION BY MADELYN POWERS | IDS

BASSETT’S BANTER

The women’s World Cup rally was more patriotic than Trump’s Fourth of July frenzy James Bassett is a junior in political science.

“The land of the free, and the home of the brave.” These words illuminate the crux of American patriotism. Designed as a safe haven free from persecution, the United States serves as a global symbol of freedom and individual liberty. In reality, those words are nothing more than idealistic values and empty promises found in songbooks and sheet music practiced by elementary students learning the National Anthem. Millions of Americans have yet to experience a land that truly lives up to the promise of freedom. Nonetheless, we continue to set our sights on a shared vision of equality for all. President Donald Trump’s recent display of military might at his vanity project dubbed “Salute to America” on July 4 in our nation’s capital attempted to display the patriotic values we celebrate annually on Independence Day. There was a stark difference between Trump’s Independence Day celebra-

tion and the homecoming of the U.S. women’s national soccer team and their World Cup trophy. While the American Flag triumphed over the wind and rain during Trump’s event, true patriotism did not. It did make a glaring appearance on the streets of New YorkCity during the July 10 World Cup parade celebrating the World Cup victory of the U.S. women’s national soccer team. Trump’s event, comprised of military flyovers, tank displays, fireworks and a Presidential address, gave Americans a dark look at the absolutist and authoritarian nature of the Trump Administration’s approach to leadership and highlighted the deep divisions within the U.S. The event racked up a bill of $5.35 million and drained the Emergency Planning and Security Fund, which provides security responses to maintain safety in Washington, D.C. In contrast, the U.S. women’s national soccer team celebratory parade and rally in New York City gave the world a sense of the idealistic values of patrio-

tism we strive to welcome into reality. Red, white and blue confetti dropped from the sky as a float carrying the team rolled down Broadway. This patriotic display symbolized unity and the values of the U.S. in a way that Trump has yet to do during his presidency. Megan Rapinoe, the forward on the U.S. team, embodied a type of patriotism during the celebration in New York that is nowhere to be found in the Trump White House. Rapinoe preached the importance of acceptance, telling the crowd, “This is my charge to everyone: We have to be better, we have to love more and hate less. Listen more and talk less. It is our responsibility to make this world a better place.” Her words paint a picture of an America brimming with pride and acceptance, not an America riddled with resent. Her words at the celebration were met with signs held by attendees, advocating for equal pay and workplace equality. Attendees at Trump’s event would instead resort to campaign banners with “TRUMP” scribbled in bolded letters.

Rapinoe’s words and the atmosphere of acceptance that filled the streets of New York City during the World Cup celebration speak to a

country that’s free and patriotic, not one that’s held by the grip of tanks and jets flying overhead. The U.S. women’s national soccer

team is setting the example. It’s time for Trump to follow. jamesbasse@iu.edu

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Don’t blame Israel, blame Hamas The IDS published two op-eds by Bryce Greene in relation to Mayor Buttigieg’s stance on Israel. Instead of blaming Israel for the plight of Palestinians, the blame should be placed on the U.S. State Department-designated terror organization Hamas. Israel didn’t rebrand

Hamas as a terrorist organization; the Hamas charter blatantly calls for Israel’s destruction. Israel, like every other country, has the right to protect its citizens. Hamas promised children $83 if they were to be injured in the summer 2018 protests. Hundreds of rockets were fired into Israel. I

know first hand — I was living 35 miles from the Gaza border. Without the U.S.backed Iron Dome missile defense system, thousands of Israelis would have been slaughtered. I, a proud pro-Israel American, mourn the death of every Palestinian and Israeli alike. The economic

situation facing Gazans is atrocious. I call on Hamas to stop using the millions of dollars in aid Israel and the world gives to the Palestinians to help ensure dignity for the people. I call on Hamas to stop building terror tunnels into Israel. I call on Hamas to stop paying the families of suicide

bombers. I call on Hamas to stop launching rockets to hurt Israelis. Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2005. There were no settlements there, yet there was no peace. The Palestinians were offered peace plans in 1947, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2008 and once again at the 2019 Bahrain

Conference. Each time the Palestinian leadership refused. How can there be peace when Hamas and Palestinian Authority President Abbas, who is entering his 14th year of a 3-year term, refuse to cooperate? Rachel Aranyi

Recent letter to the editor on Israel was misleading Editor’s note: this letter is a response to the above letter. On Wednesday, the Indiana Daily Student published a letter to the editor that made several false assertions about the IsraeliPalestinian conflict. The letter was responding to two recent columns by Bryce Greene that made astute criticisms of South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter claims that during the Great March of

Return protests last summer, when Gazans demonstrated near the fence that traps them inside Gaza, “thousands of Israelis would have been slaughtered” by rockets if not for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system. Yet, according to data compiled from Israeli government sources and Israel’s leading human rights organization B’Tselem, in the full decade before Iron Dome was installed, a total of 17 Israelis died from the thousands of primitive projectiles launched by Pales-

tinian militants. However, in just the first six months of the protests, Israel shot dead 150 demonstrators, including 31 children, and injured over 10,000 others. During the same period, one Israeli soldier was injured and one killed near the Gaza fence. The letter also said Hamas offered children $83 to get injured in the protests, a claim whose only sources are the Israeli military and Israel’s state media outlet Kan. The letter called on Hamas to stop building

“terror tunnels,” which is strange terminology seeing as not one terrorist attack has ever been carried out through the tunnels and Israeli intelligence says they’re aimed at military targets. The letter says “Palestinians were offered peace plans in 1947, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2008 and once again at the 2019 Bahrain Conference.” I have no idea why 2002, 2003 and 2007 are listed — such offers simply never occurred. The mention of this year’s Bahrain

conference, where Jared Kushner unveiled part of his so-called “deal of the century,” is deceptive, because that proposal neither promises peace nor addresses any of the conflict’s core issues like borders and refugees. As for the other years, the claim is true but misleading. Yes, Palestinians were offered peace deals in 1947, 2000 and 2008. In fact, Palestinians could achieve “peace” at any time by simply submitting to Israel’s will. But the offers were re-

jected because they failed to sufficiently address Palestinians’ grievances over the loss of their homeland and the deprivation of their human rights. I feel no compulsion to praise Hamas, and nothing in this letter is written with that purpose. I simply believe that if we wish to have a serious discussion of Israel and Palestine, the first step is sticking to the facts. Matthew Waterman

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 AFSME members have been working together to contact city representatives and fight back against the retracted parking permits, writing letters to the mayor and common council. “It’s a unifying issue because even though I’m not a person who uses a parking pass, I know how difficult it is to get around without a car,” Bowman-Sarkisian said. “Transportation can be a huge stressor.” AFSME members drafted and finished their largest letter to the city July 10, requesting meetings to work with city officials. After it gets the signature of other union presidents in Bloomington, it will be sent. “Making every employee bike or walk to work is not sustainable,” Ott said. “We really hope the reps from the city will come meet with us and find solutions.”

This was Barker's third time attending the USA International Harp Competition.  Barker took harp lessons from IU piano teacher Montana Grinstead for three years as a child, but never truly learned to play. Barker said her childhood love of harp is still with her today.  "I didn't want to take my eyes off of the performers," Barker said. "I was just blown away."  Laurent said she plans to spend a few weeks with family and friends before going back to the harp. After a well-deserved break, she said she will be ready to play for fun again.

Bloomington resident David Keppel holds a candle July 12 in front of the Monroe County Courthouse. Keppel participated in the "Lights for Liberty" vigil to bring awareness to detention centers in the United States.

‘We have to be

LOUDER.’ Bloomington community attends vigil in support of migrants in detention centers.

Glimmers of candlelight twinkled Friday night on the lawn of the Monroe County Courthouse. But no one said a word. "Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Detention Camps" took place at 9 p.m. around the world. Bloomington native and incoming IU student Taylor Harmon said she decided two weeks ago she would host an event in Bloomington. The Bloomington event began at 7 p.m. with the candlelight vigil starting at 9 p.m. Community leaders, students, an immigration lawyer and more spoke in support of ending detention centers. The centers are used to house adults and children detained while trying to illegally cross the U.S. border as well as undocumented immigrants found in the U.S. "We want to spread awareness and help all of us who aren't immigrants ourselves to become better allies," Harmon said. Harmon's own great-grandfather was an undocumented immigrant from Mexico. She said his journey helped motivate her while planning this event.  The BBC reported U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee found the Trump administration breached the 1997 Flores vs Reno settlement by not providing migrant children in detention centers appropriate food, hygienic supplies, beds or suitable temperature conditions in July 2017.  According to the independent nonprofit Center for Immigration Studies, the Flores settlement set precedents for facility conditions and release of immigrant children in government custody. But Department of Justice lawyer Sarah Fabian said on June 18 the Flores agreement did not contain the words soap or toothbrush, and thus the agreement had not been breached.  According to an NBC analysis of federal data, 24 immigrants

have died in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody since President Donald Trump was inaugurated. Director of Community Engagement for Bloomington Mary Catherine Carmichael read a proclamation signed by Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton that declared July 12 “Lights for Liberty Day.”  "Immigrants in America have shown remarkable fortitude in the ongoing battle for their own rights, making our own country more just and equitable place for all in the process," she said.  Glenda and Bill Breeden led the group in singing “Circle Round for Freedom.” Breeden said she couldn’t stay home when she knew this event was happening tonight. She said she would like to see the detention centers shut down and the children be reunited with their families. "We've got plenty," Breeden said. "There's plenty to pass around if it were split more justly." IU astronomy department senior office services assistant Emily Nehus said she had no intention of speaking at the event. But when Harmon called for guests who wanted to share a few words, Nehus found herself in front of the crowd.  Nehus said it can be hard to find the mental energy to stay committed against fighting all the bad in the world. Speaking and listening at events like “Lights for Liberty” make it easier to find that energy.  "We have to be louder," she said. Harmon said she doesn’t want to see taxpayer dollars used to fund unsafe and unsanitary human detention that often leads to a profit for large companies. The success of the vigil has her even more ready to fight against human detention.  "There is a lot of strength in this community, and it makes me really happy," Harmon said.

Toye and Rennicks earn MLS honors By Phillip Steinmetz psteinme@iu.edu | @PhillipHoosier

The last two College Cup runs for IU men’s soccer came with multiple nowprofessional players on both rosters, two of which just earned MLS honors. As a freshman in 2017, Mason Toye led the Hoosiers with 10 goals in 21 starts. He earned multiple accolades including Big Ten Freshman of the Year and First-Team United Soccer Coaches All-Midwest Region. After helping lead IU to the National Championship game against Stanford, Toye was drafted 7th overall in the Major League Soccer SuperDraft by Minnesota United FC. After failing to score a single goal in his

rookie season, Toye has turned heads in year two. Toye earned MLS Team of the Week honors after scoring three goals and picking up two assists in his last three games. He was also nominated for MLS Player of the Week but LAFC’s Carlos Vela beat him out. As a sophomore in 2018, Justin Rennicks helped the Hoosiers reach the College Cup with six goals in 20 games started. Rennicks signed a homegrown deal with New England after his sophomore season. With the New England Revolution, Rennicks hasn’t seen the most action in his rookie season but is seen as one of the best young players in the league.

Crew SC. He recorded his first goal in New England’s U.S. Open Cup Round of 16 match against Orlando SC on June 19 off a back-post header.

SOFTBALL

IU to travel to Duke for Big Ten/ACC Challenge By Phillip Steinmetz psteinme@iu.edu | @PhillipHoosier

The beginning of the 2019 campaign for IU softball went as good as anyone could’ve imagined. IU started the season with 14-straight wins, which included a clean 4-game sweep in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge against Duke University and Syracuse University in February. With the full 2020 schedule still yet to be an-

nounced, it was revealed earlier this week that the Hoosiers will see the same opponents in the Big Ten/ ACC Challenge. IU will face Duke and Syracuse on Feb. 14-16 in Durham, North Carolina. It’ll be the third time that IU will participate in the challenge. In 2018, IU went 1-3 in the series with two losses to Georgia Tech University. After losing to Boston College 0-4 in the first game, IU won the second matchup 8-3 to pick up

its first victory of the season. The turnaround from 2018-2019 for the team was a 10-win differential. IU went 26-30 in 2018 but went 36-21 last season, which is the most wins since 2011. Its 26-8 nonconference mark was the best since 1986. Under IU Coach Shonda Stanton in her second year, IU spent six straight weeks in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, reaching as

high as No. 16 after starting the season a programrecord 14-0. IU was on the verge of a NCAA Tournament appearance, but a quarterfinal loss to Northwestern in the Big Ten Tournament knocked IU on the wrong side of the selection committee. Only three of the 23 players on the roster last season were seniors, so the Hoosiers should have a talented and deep team for the 2020 season.

The NBA should not make changes to the regular season Tristan jackson is a sophomore in journalism.

Adam Silver has proven to be very aggressive in making changes to better and further the NBA since taking over as commissioner in 2014. From getting rid of the title of “owner” for each team, to making strides in allowing players to come to the NBA straight out of high school, Silver is working hard to fix problems within the game. Maybe even a little too hard. His proposed efforts to curb player injury and resting players would harm the game more than it would help.  For a while now, resting players to avoid injury has been a huge topic in the NBA. While we want to see the best players every single game, it can’t be expected they will be able to endure 82 games every year. Kawhi Leonard even said he would not have been physically able to lead the Toronto Raptors to the NBA Finals if not for his load management. So that begs the question, how should the NBA go about addressing this? Silver has been hinting at the idea of shortening the regular season for a while now and recently announced that these changes could be put into place as early as the 2021-22 season. The magic number so far has been set at 58 games with plans to include some sort of midseason cup.  While resting players and injuries desperately needs to be addressed, the idea of

shortening the regular season is hasty and would be a huge mistake. The logistical problems this plan causes severely outweighs the benefits of such a change, and resting players can be easily solved if the NBA regulates when players can and cannot rest. Shortening the season would mean less revenue coming in through ticket sales, and new television contracts would have to be worked out as the league is producing less televised content. This would be horrible for the game as a whole, not to mention the awful idea of trying to increase viewership with some sort of midseason cup.   Toward the middle of the season, it’s pretty easy to tell which teams will be contenders, and these teams begin resting their players to avoid injury. Frustration from fans is understandable. They pay to see the best players. However, I’d rather see almost everyone healthy come playoff time than see them get hurt in meaningless games in February.  Resting players is not a problem if done right. At the end of the day, the NBA is in a great spot, and this is reflected in the astronomically big contracts players are now signing. Why take a chance at messing that up? Shortening the season would do just that, and the solution is as simple as regulating players rest but still allowing it. Tripjack@iu.edu

MOVIE REVIEW

'Spider-Man: Far From Home' marvelously introduces a new MCU chapter Olivia Elston is a graduate student in optometry.

Quentin Beck as known as Mysterio. Tom Holland and Samuel L. Jackson continue their usual Marvel magic with their well-known characters in Parker and Fury, which was no surprise. Jackson continued with his stubborn, my-wayor-the-highway attitude while Holland kept his lovable, right-minded teen performance. But Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio was a great addition to the dynamics. Gyllenhaal is able to capture the charming, intelligent personality of a man fired by Stark, claiming he did not get credit for his work and scheming to become the hero everyone needs.  His character makes you feel sympathy for him but also despise him for taking advantage of Parker.  “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is the perfect beginning for the next chapter of the MCU. It’s lighthearted bringing some contrast to the past few Marvel movie releases. The actors do a fantastic job showing the awkward cuteness of the life of high schoolers through Parker, M.J. and Parker’s best friend, Ned Leeds. But the film also doesn’t focus much on other storylines outside of SpiderMan. This next chapter is

“Avengers: Endgame” came out only two months ago and everything is still fresh with us: the tears, the jokes, the conclusion to one of the most popular and beloved series. How could anything live up to that? The original squad has been laid to rest — figuratively for most, literally for some. What would the Marvel Cinematic Universe do to follow up one of the most anticipated movies of the Marvel franchise? The answer: “SpiderMan: Far From Home.” And oddly enough, it was the right answer. The Marvel Cinematic Universe knew exactly what to give its diehard fans and SpiderMan lovers. Twenty-three movies into the MCU, and the intrigue is still intact.  Peter Parker is back immediately picking up where “Endgame” finished. After the emotional blow of losing his role model Tony Stark, Parker wants nothing more than to be a normal kid who gets to go on his class vacation and hopefully catch the eye of his crush, M.J. Of course, that doesn’t happen. Nick Fury is back and ready to recruit Parker to fight a new enemy,
