O’Guinn new IU dean of students By Dominick Jean | @Domino_Jean

Scars are for studs Zachery Mezger is more than just an honorary coach for IU’s baseball team. He’s an inspiration to many within IU athletics. By Stefan Krajisnik | @skrajisnik3

It’s the top of the fourth inning at Bart Kaufman Field and the IU baseball team finds itself in a jam. Illinois is in Bloomington for a lateApril game and has runners on first and second base with one out. As the Hoosiers look to get their defense set, one voice echoes around the stadium. “Double play, guys, double play.” It’s not the voice of IU Coach Chris Lemonis. He might be telling his team the same thing, but he has hand signals for that. Instead, the voice is coming from the stands — specifically from IU’s unofficial assistant coach, Zachery “Coach Z” Mezger. Zach has long been connected with the turnaround of IU’s baseball program. He joined the team before Bart Kaufman

Field even existed. He was brought in by former IU Coach Tracy Smith while Sembower Field was the home of the Hoosiers. Zach was the manager of the Bloomington High School North football team while Smith’s sons played, and through that connection, he was brought to IU. “He was there when there was not a lot of support for baseball, and he’s grown with the program,” Smith said. “That’s one of those things that makes the story so special.” However, IU’s turnaround story pales in comparison to the story of Zach’s battle. Zach has been diagnosed with septo optic dysplasia, cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus and pulmonary hypertension. In simpler terms, Zach, 26, is cognitively 10-12 years old, struggles with short-term memory and is considered legally blind.

When he was less than six months old, an MRI discovered excess fluid in his brain. Kelly Mezger, his mother, said she recalls doctors telling her he would be a “vegetable.” Due to the excess fluid, Zach experienced seizures before doctors decided to place a shunt to drain the fluid. Twentythree years later, Zach finds himself in the stands for most, if not all, IU baseball home games. Zach’s condition requires constant care, but Kelly and his father Jeff will do anything to get him to the games. “They give him so much,” Kelly said. “I will sacrifice my sleep to keep his heart happy.” The work of the Mezger family does not go unnoticed. “It’s a three-person team, it’s not just Zach,” Smith said. “The fact that they’ve SEE SCARS, PAGE 4

Black y Brown Festival celebrates diversity By Kathleen Clark-Perez | @KatPerezIN

The inaugural Bloomington Black y Brown Arts Festival will take place from noon to 4 p.m. May 19 at the Banneker Community Center, located at 930 W. Seventh St. “Events highlighting the artistic achievements of Latino and African American artists have been hosted in the past, but the representation of black and Latino culture in the same venue makes this event unique,” Rafi Hasan, Safe and Civil City director and coordinator of the city’s Black History Month Celebration, said. The event will feature visual and performing arts including storytelling, painting, ceramics and jewelry, Sean Starowitz, assistant director for the Arts in the City of Bloomington Economic & Sustainable Development Department, said. The city is closing down Elm Street adjacent to the Banneker Center and will offer food trucks, street performances and tables for information about local, minority owned business, in addition to displays of art in the Banneker Center, Starowitz said. “We are trying to activate the Banneker Center which historically was the school for children of color,” Starowitz said. “The idea of having the Black and Brown Festival in that space and activating that community hub promotes a new type of future for the venue.” The event is hosted by three entities of the city of Bloomington: the Black History Month Planning Committee, the Commission on Hispanic and Latino Affairs and the Department of Economic and Sustainable Development. Starowitz said this event is the city’s way of showing a commitment to promoting diversity and equity in the culture of Bloomington. “This is a community for all, and this is a community that reports a variety of different aesthetics,” Starowitz said.


Maurisa Li-A-Ping is this year’s featured artist at the Black y Brown Arts Festival. The festival takes place Saturday, May 19, at the Banneker Community Center in Bloomington.

Hasan said many people know a large percentage of Africans who were transported to this part of the world arrived in Brazil. “In terms of recognizing that geography, we wanted to make sure we pulled in Afro-Latino forms of art,” Hasan said. “I’m happy to be working with the Commission on Hispanic and Latino Affairs.” Hasan said he wants the celebration of African American life, history and culture to be something that extends beyond Black History Month in February. “The community has let me know that the celebration of African American life, culture and history is something that needs to be normalized,” Hasan said. “We need to see these things as a part of the Bloomington cultural fabric.”

Featured storyteller, Maurisa Li-A-Ping, recently graduated from IU with a master’s degree from the School of Education. Li-A-Ping will perform two original poems for the Black y Brown Festival. One of them is titled “Words of Affirmation” and it’s a praise poem to black girls and black women, Li-A-Ping said. “This poem is to black women and girls to let you know you are loved, you are valuable, you are worthy just as you are and that someone sees you,” Li-A-Ping said. Li-A-Ping will also share the poem “Black Body Takes on the Role of Narrator.” “This poem is about the constant struggle for black life and black validity,” Li-A-Ping said. The poem is about police bru-

tality, systems of inequity and educational barriers that don’t allow us to live our full and prosperous best lives, Li-A-Ping said. In addition to the poems, LiA-Ping will bring a painting to accompany the “Black Body Takes on the Role of Narrator” and a large printout of “Words of Affirmation.” Li-A-Ping will invite audience members to write affirming and uplifting messages they want to say to black girls and women. “I knew I wanted to be a part of the Black y Brown Arts Festival immediately because this is the first of its kind in Bloomington,” LiA-Ping said. “I think this is going to be really great for Bloomington to feature black and brown artists who are part of this community and have something to say.”

IU has selected Dave O’Guinn to take over from Lori Reesor as the new vice provost for student affairs and dean of students, as of May 15. O’Guinn, who is currently the chief litigation counsel at IU’s Office of the Vice Dave President and General Coun- O’Guinn sel, has been appointed for a two-year term, pending approval from the IU Board of Trustees according to an IU press release. Reesor, who was at IU for two years, was recently selected as vice chancellor for student affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. O’Guinn joined IU as an associate general counsel in 2007 and later became chief litigation counsel in 2014. Before joining IU as counsel, O’Guinn was a senior associate in the labor and employment department at Dinsmore & Shohl in Cincinnati, Ohio. “It’s a huge honor to follow in the footsteps of our previous deans,” O’Guinn said in the press release. “I am humbled by the tremendous responsibility to care for our students and to take on this legacy. When I was an undergrad and a student leader at DePauw, each of my deans and mentors attended IU for graduate school, which was the primary reason I went to graduate school at IU.” According to the release, O’Guinn earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from DePauw University, a master’s degree in higher education and student affairs from IU and a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Notre Dame Law School. He has also served as a residential fellow for freshman and sophomores for the past four years, where he provided mentoring and guidance. The release also stated he’s taught at IU’s School of Education and the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. “Dave has maintained a vibrant connection to his roots in student affairs,” IU Provost and Executive Vice President Lauren Robel said in the press release. “In this role, I know he will encourage and support students throughout their IU journeys, helping connect them with everything from health and wellbeing resources to leadership development and community engagement opportunities like IU Corps. Dave is well-prepared to effectively impart an understanding of what it means for students to be a productive part of a diverse community of scholars full of many voices, beliefs and experiences.” O’Guinn’s work and service is extensive. He worked with both the Indiana Memorial Union and the IU Career Development Center while earning his master’s at IU. According to the release, he also previously served as the assistant director of student activities at Quinnipiac College in Connecticut and was the director of students activities and greek life at Centre College in Kentucky. He also served as the vice chair of the Monroe County Chapter of the American Red Cross. He has volunteered with the American Red Cross since 2002. He was also assistant rector to residence halls and special assistant to the director of Notre Dame’s Student Union while in law school. His new position, if formally approved by the Board of Trustees, will have O’Guinn as dean of students and in charge of 14 departments and more than 150 IU programs and services for the Division of Student Affairs. The dean also works closely with Residential Programs and Services, Student Central and other faculty and staff to coordinate events and programming. “I learn as much from our students as they learn from me,” O’Guinn said. “I’m looking forward to developing and further strengthening my relationships across campus and leading the division with integrity and a strong passion for our students.”

IGA special session provokes controversies By Dominick Jean | @Domino_Jean

The Indiana General Assembly met for its one-day special session Monday afternoon, during which five separate bills were pushed through at the insistence of Gov. Eric Holcomb who requested the special session in April. However, numerous Democrat legislators questioned the priorities of the special session, the rushed manner of the proceedings and the lack of any mention of the crisis facing the Indiana Department of Child Services. Here are the five bills discussed and passed as part of the special session. As both the Indiana House and Senate are majority Republican, there was little doubt as to all bills being passed. HB 1457: Technical Corrections HB 1457 was the first bill up for conversation in the Indiana Senate. The bill did not relate to any change in policy issues, but was created to correct discrepancies such as incorrect dates that may have appeared in the record. The bill passed in the Indiana House 94-0 and the Senate 46-2. HB 1230: School safety House Bill 1230 discussed school safety and passed the House 96-1. Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, was the only one who voted against the bill. The bill later passed the Indiana Senate 47-1. In her opening remarks, Sen. Karen Tallian, D-Portage, said they did not need to be in session at all and HB 1230, and all the other bills, did not constitute an emergency. She also said the process was rushed and she took issue with that. “I do not believe this is a legitimate way to conduct government business,” she said. Sen. Jeff Raatz, R- Centerville, said Tallian is wrong and this bill couldn’t have waited for next year. Raatz spoke for the bill by saying HB 1230 asks for a necessary review of school safety throughout each district and school, and provided additional money to help fund measures like safety training of school employees and school safety specialists. The bill includes provisions about cyber bullying, human trafficking and additional funds for school safety, including a $5 million grant for which schools can apply. Sen. Lonnie Randolph, DEast Chicago, and Sen. Mark Stoops, D-Bloomington, both asked questions about the bill. Stoops was quick to say


Gov. Eric Holcomb speaks at the Wylam Center of Flagship East on Sept. 22, 2017. Holcomb asked Indiana lawmakers to focus on particular bills during the May 14 special session of the Indiana General Assembly. Some of the bills sparked controversy from Democrats.

that while he was going to vote for the bill, but school threats are about gun availability, not school safety alone. Randolph’s concerns were focused more on the possibility charter schools would be eligible for the same funds that public schools would have but without the same requirements. HB 1242: State and local administration HB 1242 addresses changes to state and local administration as well as tax collection policies. No major discussion took place on this bill. It passed the House 74-20 and the Senate 41-7. HB 1316: Taxes and higher education bonding The Senate moved to discuss one of the two tax bills, HB 1316. Sen. Travis Holdman, R-Markle, spoke for the bill and said it’s mostly the same as the one that existed during regular session, except HB 1316 has added language allowing families to get tax credits to 529 saving plans, which could be used for K-12 expenses. Holdman said if the bill is not passed, local tax payers could experience an uptick in tax liabilities. Tallian argued the bill would not help small businesses and needs a lot of work

for it to be effective. “It doesn’t simplify small business accounting and actually gets rid of small business deductions,” Tallian said. Holdman acknowledged Tallian’s concerns and said because of the dynamic nature of the current federal administration and changing tax rules, the bill will likely have to be reviewed later. The bill passed the Indiana House 75-22 and the Senate 40-8. HB 1315: School corporation financial management The final bill of the special session was also the most controversial. HB 1315 hands control over Muncie schools to Ball State University and removes the elected school boards in both Muncie, Indiana, and Gary, Indiana. These actions were considered necessary in order to deal with falling student enrollment in schools and debt among school corporations. The school board in Gary will change from a governing body to an advisory one. Muncie will have its board appointed by BSU. Sen. Ryan Mishler, RBremen, spoke for the bill and said it doesn’t go as far as some wanted it to, but he promised to keep an eye on the situation. Sen. Greg Taylor, D-Indi-

anapolis, stood up to address some concerns he had with the bill, including specific ways the school corporations would be exempt from certain Indiana statutes and requirements. For example, Taylor said the bill has nothing about requiring teachers to be trained in detecting neglect or abuse; there is also no mention of requiring suicide awareness and prevention. Taylor asked if the bill was in the best interest of students. Mishler said it was. Mishler said while there are some concerns, the bill gives schools the flexibility they need by not requiring overly cumbersome regulations. Taylor thanked Mishler for being straightforward, but said if the school corporation could cherry-pick what statutes they wanted to follow, that should be concerning to anyone. “We should all be troubled by that,” Taylor said. “I’m troubled by that.” Randolph also said he was concerned the bill would take power away from an elected board by making them merely an advisory board. Gary is a minority area and Randolph said someone might see this as an effort to dilute the vote of people in Gary. “Does your vote really count?” Randolph asked.

This bill also restricts when elected officials are allowed to speak in public meetings. Instead of monthly meetings, the board would only be allowed to meet once every quarter. Sen. Tim Lanae, D-Anderson, called the move taxation without representation and said the changes to the school boards of Muncie and Gary is nothing less than disenfranchisement. “We disenfranchised the community members of Muncie and Gary,” Lanae said. “One has to wonder about the accountability of a non-elected school board.” The most passionate speaker against HB 1315 was Sen. Eddie Melton, D-Merrillville. Melton told legislators he wished his comments could be brief, but that they would not be and that he hoped they had water. His comments touched on the statistics of his district in Gary, including falling student enrollment and school debt, but then went on to what he called “uncomfortable ground.” The issue of race. “This conversation would not be complete if we did not talk about race,” Melton said. Race plays a part of his life every day as a black man in Indiana, Melton said. And these new policies seems to

infringe on the rights of minorities, and it is imperative for legislators to look through a lens of “racial equity,” he said.

“I do not believe this is a legitimate way to conduct government business.” Karen Tallian, state senator

While not an indictment on anyone in the chamber, he said, race needs to be a part of the conversation and the approach lawmakers take when addressing community issues. Melton said HB 1315 is not a grassroots movement or request. Rather, it is a top-down move and one that he cannot support. This bill, he said, looks like taxation without representation and like the dilution of the minority vote in school board elections. Melton said Mishler has been helpful and open about the process around the bill, but that his vote had to be no and he hoped others would do the same. Despite Melton’s plea, HB 1315 on the Gary and Muncie takeover passed the House 63-30 and passed the Senate 34-14.

A Bloomington man allegedly met with his ex-girlfriend Sunday on West 17th street and then grabbed her and threw her into his van and drove away. The Bloomington Police Department was notified by the woman’s current husband called who said his wife was missing, BPD Capt. Steve Kellams said. She had gone to meet Bryan Maddin, after he threatened to kill himself. Kellams said she left at 7 p.m. and didn’t return, which is when the husband began

to worry. When she called later at approximately 9:50 p.m., the husband thought he heard an argument in the background and told police. He drove to Cartop State Recreation Area on the southeast side of Bloomington where police later found them. Maddin told police he and the woman were in a relationship and they had taken a drive to talk about their relationship. The woman had no visible injuries, Kellams said. Maddin was arrested on charges of kidnapping, strangulation, criminal confinement and battery.

The US is complicit in Israel’s killings in Gaza. Masses of unarmed protestors are being gunned down with our help. ILLUSTRATION BY MADELYN POWERS | IDS

Matthew Waterman is a senior in jazz studies, theater and drama.

Sixty Palestinians were killed by Israeli troops during demonstrations at the fence surrounding Gaza on Monday, just as Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin and high-ranking Israeli officials celebrated the dedication of a new embassy in Jerusalem. The juxtaposition of the U.S. embassy dedication ceremony in Jerusalem and the bloodbath in Gaza shows the gulf that has emerged between the Israel that Americans see and the true face of Israel. Americans see a tolerant, democratic state. The actual behavior displayed by the Israeli army in Gaza Monday, and during all of the weekly demonstrations that have taken place there since March 30, is that of a racist and brutal occupier. Palestinians are being treated as subhuman. For the past six weeks, Palestinians have set up encampments near the fence that traps them inside Gaza. During demonstrations, Gazans move toward the fence, lined with Israeli snipers. Many have tried to breach the fence

as a way of implementing their “right of return,” the right of Palestinian refugees and their families to return to their homes in what is now Israel. In keeping with the instructions of organizers, most protesters are nonviolent. Some throw rocks and Molotov cocktails. They are met with brute force regardless. Over the course of the protests, compiling figures from the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Israel has killed 111 demonstrators. A shocking 13,000 have been wounded, and almost 3,400 have been shot with live ammunition. The preferred excuse of Israel’s apologists is that the protests are in fact violent riots organized by the terrorist group Hamas, with the goal of slaughtering Jews. But those pundits are having trouble getting that narrative across, since Hamas is only one of many factions backing the protests, and not a single Israeli civilian or soldier has even been injured in the entire six weeks. Journalist and fellow at the Nation Institute Sharif Abdel Kouddous reported on Monday’s killings from the ground. He described the events as follows: “It’s not a barrage of fire. It’s methodical. It’s patient. It’s precise. You

hear a shot, and someone falls down. Then his bloodied body is carried away. You wait a few minutes, you hear another shot, and another body falls. And that’s how 1,350 people were shot yesterday—slowly, by Israel.” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Rupert Colville condemned Israel’s conduct, stating the obvious fact that “an attempt to approach or crossing or damaging the fence do not amount to a threat to life or serious injury and are not sufficient grounds for the use of live ammunition.” As reported by NPR, much of the world has reacted in kind, but not the United States. The U.S., rather, has done everything it can in the wake of Monday’s massacre to show the world the U.S. government sees the lives and welfare of Gaza’s residents as utterly worthless. The U.S. blocked a UN Security Council resolution calling for an independent investigation into Monday’s bloodshed. U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, isolated herself from the world, blaming all the violence on Hamas and not uttering a word critical of Israel. White House Press Secretary Raj Shah did the same.

The rage of Monday’s protestors was fueled by the simultaneous ceremony in Jerusalem celebrating the U.S. decision to move its embassy there from Tel Aviv. This symbolizes Trump’s recognition of all of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, in defiance of international law, which states East Jerusalem is occupied Palestinian territory. Haley absurdly claimed the protests are unrelated. As if Haley had not yet displayed enough disregard for the humanity of Palestinians, she proceeded to walk out of the Security Council meeting as soon as the Palestinian representative began to speak. It’s not only the diplomatic cover and Trump’s illegal decision on Jerusalem that make Americans complicit in Israel’s brutality. The U.S. sends Israel several billion dollars in military aid every year — more than double what we give to any other country. We’re paying for the weapons that are killing and maiming these demonstrators. Gaza’s residents are not infiltrating a sovereign border. They are risking their lives in a desperate attempt to escape a miserable ghetto that Israel controls from outside. The U.S. must stop abetting Israel’s despicable behavior.



‘13 Reasons Why’ touches on sensitive subjects Madison Cole is a senior in journalism.

As the second season of “13 Reasons Why” premieres May 18 on Netflix, you should strongly consider making this your next binge for the summer. The first season of “13 Reasons Why” follows a fictional character, Hannah Baker, who makes 13 audio tapes that discuss the series of events that led to her suicide. The tapes highlight important life issues, such as bullying, sexual assault and mental health that need to be touched upon. Previously, suicide has been considered a taboo choice of conversation. People do not want to talk about it because of the way it brings up uncomfortable circumstances. “13 Reasons Why” creates awareness for the topic of suicide, as the show is centered on the suicide of Baker. Another central theme appearing in “13 Reasons Why” is the issue of mental health. While mental health has not necessarily been

a comfortable thing to discuss, things are beginning to change. Baker is not her usual happy self in the tapes, and suffers from a deep depression. It is important for people to be aware of signs of mental health issues to help others who need it. Spotting the signs early could save a life. The issue of bullying is taken to another level in “13 Reasons Why.” Fellow students begin to harass Baker after nude photos of her circulate around her high school. Students abuse her verbally by calling her names and slut-shaming her. The bullying increases when a hot-or-not list comes out with her name listed under hot causing more unwanted sexual harassment, such as a stalker that takes photos of her unknowingly while she is in her bedroom. These incidents cause Baker to feel alone. “13 Reasons Why” lets people know bullying has a lasting effect. Bullying must be watched for and prevented to ensure everyone is given the opportunity to feel safe.

While you would hope life would get better for Baker, things only get worse when she is raped by a senior. The audio tapes reveal that this event, along with her previous encounters with bullying, led Baker to end her life. Many survivors of sexual assault or abuse suffer silently, so sexual misconduct or sexual abuse are issues that need to be discussed more often. It is important to learn about how to help, so those who have been through that kind of situation are able to receive professional care. Above all, “13 Reasons Why” is a great show to demonstrate that the way we interact with people matters and all people should be treated with kindness. In previous times, the first words you would use to comfort people impacted by suicide would be, “It’s not your fault.” “13 Reasons Why” implies that suicide can be due to the way that people are treated. After watching this show and getting educated on sensitive issues, you will be able to make a difference in your own community. All it takes is one person to create a change.

dedicated their lives to giving their son the happiness to be a part of that is an example for all parents of what it truly means to be supportive.” Zach is not embarrassed by his scars, either. During the game against Illinois, he took off his hat and showed his new friends the scars his battle has left behind. “Scars are for studs,” he and his family say. He is not ashamed of his differing abilities either. To the Mezger family, there’s no such thing as disabilities; rather there are advantages and abilities. The athletes learn that as well. “They get used to my advantages,” Zach said. “They get used to me.” He just wants others to understand. “When people look at me like I’m different, it really hurts my feelings,” Zach said. Those close to Zach have learned to look at him no differently. Over time, Zach has bonded with numerous professional athletes through ProCamps. ProCamps is an event management and sports marketing company that helps

organize sports camps for athletes. Zach grew close to the company through Smith’s brother-in-law, Gregg Darbyshire. Darbyshire is the co-founder of ProCamps and has welcomed Zach into yet another big role. “He got so good at understanding what we do, I called him the co-CEO of ProCamps,” Darbyshire said. Zach has built friendships with athletes such as Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton and many more. As much as Zach enjoys them, the athletes gain a lot from Zach as well. “He’s a great reminder for the athletes and an inspiration,” Darbyshire said. “This is a young man that could feel sorry for himself, and instead he takes what he has and makes the best of it. It’s good for them to be reminded of how blessed and gifted we all are.” Zach has done much more than just inspire the athletes. “For my kids, they don’t see Zach any different because Zach is their friend,” Darbyshire said. “As a parent, you’re not prouder of anything than that. I love for my kids to be around Zach.” One athlete in particu-

lar who has been close with Zach is former IU player Kyle Schwarber, an outfielder for the Chicago Cubs. Schwarber, has stayed in touch with Zach after going professional. Zach has taken part in Schwarber’s camps while also attending Cubs spring training. However, the moment that stands out to the Mezger family came moments before the biggest game of Schwarber’s career. On the day of game seven of the 2016 Major League Baseball World Series, Zach sent Schwarber a message wishing him luck. Just two hours before first pitch, Zach got a response: “thanks for your support. love you bub.” “Bub” is the term Zach uses to describe the members of the IU baseball team. “These guys are part of my family— my brothers and my bubs,” Zach said. Bub is also just one of the nicknames Zach has handed out to his friends. Smith goes by “skip,” Lemonis is “riffraff ” and former IU women’s basketball player Tyra Buss is “sissygirl.” During the women’s basketball WNIT Championship run earlier this year, Zach grew close with Buss and members of the team. During the WNIT quarterfinal game

at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, in which IU defeated University of California at Davis, Zach sat courtside with Lemonis. “He’s the biggest fan out of anybody,” Lemonis said. “I don’t know if anybody in that arena was more excited than he was. He kept turning to me and saying ‘the roof’s gonna come off.’” The off-field bond between Lemonis and Zach stretches beyond IU athletics. “We FaceTime about three times a week, and if I don’t answer I get a text that says ‘FaceTime,’” Lemonis said. “He’s just a good friend.” Lemonis took over as IU’s head coach in 2015 after Smith left to take the head coaching position at Arizona State. The Mezgers and the Smiths were worried about how to break the news to Zach. It was not easy at first, but over time Zach has learned things happen for a reason and has grown to enjoy the trips to Arizona. One piece of Smith will always remain close to him for Zach, as well. When Zach helps coach third base during practice, he wears the No. 21 helmet that was previously used by Smith. All the while, the bond built between Lem-

because if I see an error I get really pissed off,” Zach said. “Don’t drop it, do not drop it.” As long as the team can keep the defense clean, the goal is simple for Zach. He points to the wall in right-center field of Bart Kaufman Stadium commemorating IU’s 2013 College World Series team. “Our goal is that right there — CWS,” Zach said. “I think this year we can get a championship.” In the end, regardless of the result, Zach will continue to have a constant smile on his face and a positive attitude, despite any struggles he may face. His family says they continue to live by the motto “We thank God for the memories of the day,” and when they wake up, “We thank God for giving us another to love and be blessed by our wonderful, amazing life.” With each wonderful day he has, Zach continues to cherish every moment while also taking his position seriously. “Winning or losing, we still love the fans,” Zach said. “When I walk out the gate, I’m just like a regular kid. When I come in, I’m Coach Z.”

onis and Zach is one of the best outcomes. “I love him,” Zach said. “He took me under his wing.” Smith has noticed the way IU baseball has developed under Lemonis, but Smith has also admired what Lemonis has done with Zach. “I really appreciate what he’s done with the program and with his relationship with Zach and the Mezger family,” Smith said. “The fact that he’s embraced that and built upon it is certainly a testament as to who Chris is as a person and a coach.” Despite coaching IU baseball and cheering on many other IU teams, Zach has still kept up with his own sports. Zach participates in Special Olympics, particularly in bowling and basketball. Zach said his sister, Amelia, taught him his “sweet shot” and has been his “biggest supporter and biggest pusher of him to be his best.” But right now, Zach has a top priority — 2018 IU baseball. He says the team needs to take it one game at a time as it approaches postseason play. The key to winning — no errors. “I don’t want any errors

For even more conspiracy theories, visit

Queer rapper Big Dipper performed May 12 at The Back Door. Read about his life and career online.





From the structure of the planet to the status and stunts of celebrities, conspiracy theories seek to challenge the status quo. Below are some prominent takes on popular topics and people. THE EARTH IS FLAT! Photoshopped images of the globe. Gravity doesn’t exist. The flat earth theory holds just that — the planet is not spherical, but flat. “The earth is surrounded on all sides by an ice wall that holds the oceans back,” according to the Flat Earth Society website. What exists beyond the ice wall is unknown. According to the Flat Earth Society website, the best proof of a flat earth is the Bedford Level Experiment of the 19th century. After examining the surface level of water along a river in 1838, scientist Samuel Rowbotham

concluded the Earth was flat. “Can you really think of us rotating around the sun, and all the planets align, rotating in specific dates, being perpendicular with what’s going on with these planets and stuff like this?” Boston Celtics player Kyrie Irving said in Allie Clifton’s Road Trippin’ podcast. Other celebrities and athletes have hinted at beliefs in the flat earth model, including retired professional basketball player Shaquille O’Neal and rapper B.o.B. The earth rises upward at 32 feet per second

squared, which creates the illusion of gravity, according to flat earth believers. With space exploration, the Flat Earth Society suggests it only takes a fraction of the space travel budget to fake space travel, leaving a large surplus for greedy scientists. “Please note that we are not suggesting that space agencies are aware that the earth is flat and actively covering the fact up,” according to the Flat Earth Society website. “They depict the earth as being round simply because that is what they expect it to be.”

AVRIL LAVIGNE IS DEAD! Rumor has it Canadian punk-princess and “Sk8r Boi” singer Avril Lavigne died in 2003 and was replaced by a doppelganger named Melissa Vandella. It has been said that when Lavigne’s grandfather passed away in 2003, she couldn’t handle it, and allegedly, took her own life. Since she was at the height of her career the record label didn’t want to let her go. Thus, Melissa became Avril. When Lavgine released her first album in

2002, the fame she experienced was heavy. Since she had trouble adjusting, she hired a body double, Melissa Vandella, to walk around for her. The two became fast friends, Lavigne even wrote “Melissa” across her hand during a photoshoot. Physically, Lavigne now has fewer freckles on her arm now than she did before and during 2003, which can be tied to growth as a human being but, for conspiracy purposes, it can be linked to Melissa taking her spot post-death.

Lavigne was a punk-lover. She wore ripped tank tops and almost always wore pants. Suddenly she was making red carpet appearances in skirts and singing along to what sounds like dubstep in her song “Hello Kitty.” This change in her appearance and her musical style can also be tied to growth, but again, it can also be tied to Melissa. It’s entirely possible that Lavigne is still alive, but that’s no fun. In the spirit of 2002 Avril, it’s fun to make things complicated.

MELANIA TRUMP HAS A BODY DOUBLE! In October of 2017, Melania Trump was accused of hiring a body double to appear on television with President Donald Trump. One Twitter user, @JoeVargas, tweeted out a photo of a CNN clip of President Trump and the first lady. The tweet said, “This is not Melania. To think they would go this far & try & make us think

its her on TV is mind blowing.” In the photo posted, it looked as if Melania’s nose was part of a mask. Her sunglasses were big enough to hide the bulk of her face. During the interview from which the clip was taken, the President Trump slipped up and said, “My wife Melania, who happens to be right here.”

Twitter user @JoeVargas pointed out the phrase “who happens to be right here” is a strange thing to say about someone who is in the line of sight for the camera. This conspiracy has since been debunked by several sources, like CNNPolitics and Vox. The consensus was that the Twitter user may have just had a bad television.

The IU dugout watches an IU at-bat during the game against Indiana State on April 10 at Bart Kaufman Field. IU won its third-straight game Tuesday night, defeating Louisville, 9-5.

Hoosiers overcome adversity in win against Cardinals | @cdrummond97

LOUISVILLE — IU Coach Chris Lemonis was quiet between the ninth and 10th innings of Tuesday night’s game against Louisville at Jim Patterson Stadium. The Hoosiers were three outs away from victory in the bottom of the ninth, leading the Cardinals 3-1, when Louisville sophomore outfielder Ethan Stringer sent a game-tying, two-run home run over the left field wall in a pinch-hit appearance against sophomore pitcher Andrew Saalfrank. The winning run advanced to third base for the Cardinals with two outs in the inning, but IU freshman pitcher Tommy Sommer entered the game and struck out

a three-run home run over the scoreboard beyond the right field fence. “They feel like a million bucks tonight,” Lemonis said. “Especially coming back after the ninth inning and playing against a great program.” IU has won six of its last seven meetings with Louisville, and Tuesday’s victory marked the third-straight win for the Hoosiers after a season-high five-game losing streak. In each of the three wins, the IU offense has recorded at least 10 hits, while the Hoosiers’ starting pitcher has thrown at least five innings. “I feel like we’re on a roll now,” Barr said. “I think we’re a dangerous team right now, and it will be real interesting to see what happens. I think, just, we got over that hump.

junior infielder Devin Mann to force extra innings with the game tied 3-3. The short break before the 10th allowed IU’s players to refocus. “You don’t say much,” Lemonis said. “They just went right out there and played.” While two of IU’s first three batters were retired in the top of the 10th, the following five batters all reached base as part of a six-run frame, which powered the Hoosiers to a 9-5 victory. Contributions were made in the inning by both new and veteran players — Freshman infielder Cole Barr gave IU the lead with a pinch-hit RBI single, junior outfielder Logan Kaletha forced a bad throw from the Louisville infield to score two runs and junior utility player Matt Lloyd crushed

We had that rough stretch, but I think we got over that now.” Sophomore pitcher Cameron Beauchamp produced the second-longest outing of his career Tuesday. The left-handed pitcher allowed just three hits and one run over the course of 5.2 innings, while striking out five Cardinal batters. However, it was the work of IU’s relief pitchers that kept the Hoosiers in a position to win the game. Saalfrank entered the game in a bases-loaded, twoout situation for Louisville in the bottom of the seventh. Just as Sommer would do two innings later, Saalfrank struck out Mann to end the scoring threat and keep the game tied. “I thought Andrew was really good until those two Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is an 8 — Generate funding with your team to pay financial obligations.

pitches in the ninth,” Lemonis said. “Maybe it’s a learning process for him, so hopefully he’ll be back out there this weekend. Lemonis said he put Sommer in the game in the ninth after Saalfrank’s breaking ball became ineffective. As a result, Sommer was able to use his changeup against Mann to strike him out and force a 10th inning. While Sommer allowed a two-run home run to sophomore designated hitter Danny Oriente in the bottom of the 10th, the explosion of runs from IU in its half of the inning was enough to secure the victory. “We have some resiliency,” Lemonis said.

Ahead of this important end-of-season series, Lemonis said Lloyd was the only unavailable pitcher for IU against Louisville. IU still needs to pick up wins to ensure its spot in the Big Ten Tournament in Omaha, Nebraska. The Hoosiers are currently sixth in the conference standings, while the Terrapins are eighth. The top eight teams in the Big Ten qualify for the postseason tournament. “Everyone is playing for something right now,” Lemonis said. “I like where we’re at.
