ISU official nabbed in hooker sting

hris Sweeney CNews editor

Friday, December 9, 2011 Indiana State University Volume 119 Issue 41

An ISU official is on paid vacation leave at his own request after being arrested Wednesday for patronizing a prostitute. Brian K. Hasler, the special assistant to the president for external relations, was arrested in Indianapolis by an undercover officer who placed an online ad for massages. “At his request, Brian Hasler is currently taking paid vacation time to address personal issues,” said Tara Singer, assistant vice president for ISU’s Communications and Marketing. “The university has no further comment at this time.” According to an Indianapolis Metropolitan probable cause affidavit, Hasler replied to the online ad using his university email account. The affidavit states Hasler began

the conversation asking “still in Indy?” and “available?” After the undercover officer responded with another question asking “what you needing,” Hasler stated that he wanted a “massage or more,” according to the affidavit. Messages continued between Hasler and the undercover officer until Hasler agreed to meet the officer and pay him $160 in exchange for sexual acts, according to the affidavit. Hasler met the officer at the Omni Hotel where he was informed that he was speaking to a police officer. The officer walked Hasler to the downtown district IMPD office where he was placed under arrest, according to the affidavit. Hasler is scheduled to appear in the Indianapolis Superior Court on Jan. 13 at 1:30, said Tammie Peters, IMPD Public Relations Representative.

Students debate res life issues at SGA town hall Dustyn Fatheree Reporter

Students gave suggestions and concerns to the Student Government Association about residential hall rules and campus dining options at the Student Town Hall event, Wednesday, at the Cunningham Memorial Library. Some of the suggestions and concerns about the curfew times that the students stated are: no visitation hour restrictions, it is not fair for homosexuals to be able to have their mates over after curfew since they are the same sex while others cannot since it involves the opposite sex, if a free-roam system is adopted then that means more security and less privacy in the dorm halls, Residential Assistants and Academic Peer Advocates don’t follow the rules but expect the residents to abide by the rules. The suggestions and concerns for the dining

hall options are: the dining halls should be open on the weekends, more vegetarian options, the inflated prices of the Campus Cupboard, and the lack of variety. “The Deliberative Diplomatic Dialogue is a series that students survey each other about concerns on campus,” said Darlene Hantzis, a professor and an acting chair in the communication field. “It is all about listening, talking, and disagreeing with each other. That is how democracy works.” Hantzis’s comm 202 public communication class surveyed around 450 students about developments that can be made on campus. The two most popular trends found through the surveys were discussed at the Student Town Hall event. Some of the other subjects that were big in the surveys were parking on campus and faculty interaction Hantzis said.

Departments report phony FedEx charges Several campus departments have reported fraudulent charges on their FedEx accounts. Despite requests from ISU to close those accounts, FedEx did not get all of the compromised accounts closed. If you have more than five Fedex fraud charges on your account call Vicky Nelson (901) 397-2383. Request credit for the charges. If you have already requested credit for fraud charges, check again. Since Fedex failed to close the accounts, some accounts have had a second round of charges. It would be best to check on fraudulent charges on or after Wednesday in order to help insure all charges have had a chance to post to your account Information will be forthcoming in the next day or two about setting up a new account.

PROSTITUTION/FROM PAGE 1 Hasler’s responsibilities at ISU have ranged from acting as the university’s legislative lobbyist to writing a children’s book about Sycamore Sam. President Daniel J. Bradley appointed Hasler as a special assistant for external relations in 2008. Hasler had represented the Evansville area in the Indiana House of Representatives from 1996 to 2004, according to his biography posted on the ISU website. Before entering public office, he was an aide to former U.S. Reps. Lee Hamilton of Indiana, Bill Patman of Texas and Frank McCloskey of Indiana. In his role in Bradley’s cabinet, Hasler serves as a liaison to members of the state legislator and other governmental agencies, according to his biography. He also presents university requests for state operating and capital funding. Hasler also works as the university’s main liaison with Indiana’s Congressional delegation and Terre Haute city officials. He is the author of “The Story of

Hasler was scheduled to sign copies of the book Friday at ISU’s Barnes&Noble Bookstore, but that event has been cancelled, said Dave Taylor, media relations director for ISU Communications and Marketing. Hasler is a native of Terre Haute and a 1980 ISU alumnus. He lives in Indianapolis with his wife and children. He works from Indianapolis and the president and provost’s office at ISU. University officials could not confirm if Hasler was on campus when news of his arrest broke midday Thursday.

The Indiana Statesman is published Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, except during exam periods and university breaks, and is published three times during the summer. The Indiana Statesman was founded May 16, 1929, the same year that Indiana State Normal School became Indiana State Teachers College. The newspaper began in December 1879 as the State Normal News. In November 1895, the paper was first issued as the Normal Advance. Members of the ISU community are welcome to take a single copy of each issue of this newspaper. The unauthorized taking of multiple copies, however, may constitute theft, which is a crime, even with free publications. Thefts will be reported to campus police for possible prosecution and/or for other disciplinary actions. The Indiana Statesman exists for four main reasons: to provide the ISU community with news and information, to serve the campus as a public forum for student and reader comments, to offer student staff members chances to apply their skills in different aspects of a news publication, and to give students leadership opportunities.

Study-In movement has admin support NICK HEDRICK News editor

Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students Carmen Tillery praised the efforts of a group of African American students promoting higher black student retention. The students, organized by junior accounting major Keith Dickerson, have conducted a series of Study-Ins throughout campus to motivate freshmen and sophomores to focus on academics and to appeal for administrative support for keeping African American students at ISU. “They are trying to be good stewards and role models for students” by demonstrating their devotion to academic success, Tillery said. On Friday, the students occupied a cluster of tables at the center of the HMSU Commons. Earlier, the students opened their books and laptops in the Student Rec Center and the first-floor lounge of Mills Hall. ISU administrators have spent several years tackling why large numbers of freshmen do not return for their sophomore year. Tillery said she did not believe there were any particular reasons why black student retention numbers were worse

than any other demographic. Black student numbers steadily increased between 2005 and the Fall of 2010, when 586 black students were enrolled, according to the Office of Institutional Research. This fall, ISU enrolled a total of 550 black students. According to Institutional Research data, less than half of each class altogether enrolled in Fall 2008, 2009 and 2010 are still ISU students. Tillery said the students who are spearheading and participating in the Study-In movement are all successful students who want to demonstrate that it is socially acceptable to study. She also said she believed the university should require all students who are struggling academically to take advantage of provided extra-help and tutoring resources. Some students participating in the StudyIns”were helping other students with homework assignments. Dickerson said no further Study-Ins were planned this semester, but that the movement would continue after break. “As soon as we get back, we’ll get right back on it,” he said.

Employees react to health proposals ELIZABETH DAWES Reporter

ISU Staff Council chair Kelly Hall said she is concerned some employees may not be able to afford some medicines under proposed changes to the university’s prescription card policy. “Insurance is constantly changing, and my main concern is for the people who have to have a certain prescription... and that that prescription isn’t on the list of approved medications through ISU, so they would have to pay extra for it,” said Hall, who also serves as program coordinator of IU Medical School-Landsbaum Center at Terre Haute. ISU is reacting to state-mandated changes to its formulary, or list of prescriptions covered under ISU’s insurance plan. Health insurance provider Medco manages the formulary. A proposed change would require employees who purchase a drug not included on the revised list to pay an extra $20 per fill plus half of any cost above $20. “It is scary … Everyone has a concern, a lot of people who are on prescriptions will be seeing changes,” said Marilyn Heaton, a staff benefits council member. Other proposed changes would require pharmacists to review the quantity of specific drugs prescribed to ensure employees are receiving the

correct amount and mandate safety screening. Other healthcare changes that are being brought on by Indiana are that they require the ISU employee weighted average contribution be brought up to 33 percent by 2016. Each year the rate will change 1.6 percent starting in 2012. This average is the amount that employees pay to be a part of the health care plan. “The university subsidizes 75 percent of the coverage,” Barton said. Retirees will also be feeling the changes as well. The retiree contribution rate will go from 20.1 percent in 2011 to 33 percent in 2016. Although there is a sense of urgency brought on by ISU employees, staff benefits director Candy Barton said that these plans are still proposals. “[The state of Indiana] would like to see comparable coverage and costs across the entire state,” said Barton. “It is not unusual for rates to change in insurance,” Barton said. ISU’s Board of Trustees will consider the proposals this month. If approved, the changes would take effect Jan. 1. “Everyone has mixed feelings on the plan, and we will have to wait and see how the plan affects the university, that’s the mentality that I have right now,” Hall said.

Hirsch, Branham to deliver winter commencement addresses

ISU Communications and Marketing

Dean Hirsch holds degrees from two colleges and has earned four honorary doctorates during a career spent on behalf of the poor and disadvantaged. Judy Branham is a non-traditional student who is completing her first bachelor’s degree, with honors. Hirsch and Branham will deliver separate addresses Dec. 17 during Indiana State University’s winter commencement. Hirsch, former president of World Vision International, is a part-time consultant to non-profit agencies, including World Vision and Child Help, as well as KPMG International, a network of firms offering audit, tax and advisory services. As an ambassador for KPMG’s Global Development Initiative, Hirsch works on behalf of the Dean Hirsch, company’s public sector practices, including international development services and alumni the global grants program, which engage in sustainable development practices in sev- speaker eral countries. Hirsch is known for refocusing World Vision’s development and advocacy work on children. Globally, its programs benefit more than 3.6 million children and their families. On Hirsch’s watch, World Vision dramatically scaled up its relief operations, responding to large scale disasters including the Asian tsunami in 2005-06 and the Myanmar cyclone and Sichuan earthquake in 2008. “We should not tolerate the needless suffering of children,” Hirsch said. “Our mission is to help create a world in which no child suffers or dies for lack of food, clean water, shelter or protection from exploitation or war.” A veteran of world trouble spots including Somalia and North Korea, Hirsch has worked extensively in disaster and post-conflict situations. He helped set up famine relief in Ethiopia, AIDS prevention work in Africa and Asia, and peace building programs in countries such as Bosnia, Rwanda and El Salvador. Hirsch, 63, holds a master’s degree from Indiana State and a bachelor’s degree and an honorary doctorate from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, Calif. He also holds honorary doctorates from Pepperdine University, Eastern University of Pennsylvania and Myongji University in Seoul, Korea. Branham, 53, of Parke County, is completing a bachelor’s degree in communication/journalism at Indiana State, after earlier completing an associate degree in visual communication/photography at Ivy Tech Community College. When she graduated from high school in 1976, Branham was a Hoosier Scholar earning a fully-paid four-year scholarship, but life circumstances kept her from taking advantage of the scholarship. She is married to her husband Ken, and she serves as an office administrator in his business, Yesteryear

Builders, a builder of custom homes, barns and decorative concrete. Branham enrolled full-time at Ivy Tech Community College in search of her first degree in 2003. That fall, her father, a World War II veteran whose honors included three Purple Hearts and four bronze stars, died. Nearly 60 years after the war, her dad was pleased his service helped her ultimately pursue her goal of a college-degree via an award for the children of disabled veterans, she said. In 2007, she completed her associate degree. In 2009, she found herself unemployed which led her to pursue a bachelor’s degree at Indiana State. Branham said her commencement address will seek to inspire her fellow graduates “to look at positive examples we have all had in life and follow those good examples.” Judy Branham said she would not have been able to complete a four-year degree without Branham, the veterans’ award, scholarships received and “the kindness that people have shown student along the way. We need to continue to be good examples and pay forward the kindness speaker shown us.” When she made the commitment to go to college, she wanted to do something she enjoyed, Branham said. As an already accomplished photographer and published author, she had always desired to further her education as a journalist, she said. While at Indiana State, she served an internship researching historic cemeteries, including one at the former Vigo County Poor Farm where a water line installation earlier this year revealed the presence of graves from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Branham’s campus involvement includes membership in Sigma Alpha Lambda Honor Society, Golden Key Honor Society, and reporter for Sycamore Video, Sycamore Media, and the Indiana Statesman, and publication of her research of the poor farm on Wabash Valley Visions and Voices. Her awards include magna cum laude Latin honors, dean’s list, commuter scholarship, journalism scholarship and communication department scholarship. She was a finalist for the 2010 Richard G. Landini Outstanding Junior Award and the 2011 Alan C. Rankin Distinguished Senior Award. While at ISU, Branham served the homeless at Light House Mission, took part in 5K walk/runs for cancer, placed flags at the Dede Plaza on the anniversary of Sept. 11 in honor of those who died, and helped raise funds for Soldiers Angels and Ryves Youth Center at Etling Hall. Branham is writing a book about her research of the poor farm and seeks to be a freelance writer of human interest stories. Indiana State’s winter commencement is scheduled for noon Dec. 17 at Hulman Center.

TOWN HALL/FROM PAGE ONE The event was set up with a YouTube video for both of the subjects. After the video, a small group discussion was held at all the tables. There was a facilitator to lead the discussions and also a recorder that wrote down the significant concerns. After the small group discussion, Lezlie Maslanka, SGA’s vice president, led a large group discussion. She said that the event was a test group for suggestions to see what SGA could do about it.

“There are usually three programs in the fall semester, but there is only one this year,” said Hantzis. “There will be another series next semester that will be about the elections and how it concerns the students.” “Democracy is figuring out what people want, it’s another thing to act,” said Nolan Davis, the assistant vice president of Student Affairs. “Students can change if they petition it or relay it to SGA. Get your voices heard.”

This is our last issue of the semester! Thank you for reading! Good luck on your finals and have a happy holiday season. The Statesman news staff

Celebrities beat out natural disaster in top 10 list

Thomas Hardesty Politically Direct

Does it concern you at all that the Top 10 Searches of 2011 included 7 celebrities, the iPhone and only two significant world events? Yahoo! released its annual “Top 10 Searches” as part of its “2011 Year in Review” series, and the list was a little troubling. It was no real surprise that the new iPhone was on the list, but the fact that it took the number one spot is disconcerting. Do Americans really care about a cell phone more than anything else? After the iPhone comes Casey Anthony, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Lindsey Lohan, the show “American Idol,” Jennifer Aniston, the Japan Earthquake and Osama bin Laden. Evidently, Americans care more about cell phones and celebrities than a devastating natural disaster or the world’s most wanted man. Have you ever wondered why our nation’s in the trouble it’s in? Sure, there’s corruption, people have been taken advantage of and some people are just victims of bad luck. But if all we’re wiling to do is soak up whatever the mainstream media throws our way, then change is going to be pretty tough. It’s no coincidence that serious news stories only made up 30 percent of the list. The Yahoo! article attributed this to the fact that news stories don’t need to be searched because all the details are available. This is true to an extent, but it also brings light to a serious issue with Americans’ method of gathering information—we’re too content. Many Americans are upset about our economic crisis but are unsure of the cause. A lot of the time, we assume that the media will tell us if there are answers behind real problems. But, as well all know, the mainstream media also has their fair share of hush money. So much of the news we gain has been chosen and handpicked by people with their own interests. Don’t believe me? Look through to see how many stories are dedicated to rumors and allegations concerning Herman Cain, and how many stories reveal facts about Pelosi’s favors and loopholes she provided for her own district. Instead of using the information superhighway to gather facts about CEOs who exploit their employees and the incredibly corrupt Congress, Americans are using it to see how long Kim Kardashian’s wedding lasts and the comebacks of the Jennifers—Aniston and Lopez. There’s nothing wrong with reading about celebrities, and to be fair, a small fraction of the stories, like Katy Perry’s breaking of several records, are interesting and culturally relevant. But should 60 percent (70 percent if you count Anthony’s legal case) of the top 10 list be celebrities and reality TV?If we’re really tired, as a nation, of falling victim to the powers that be with the fat wallets, then we should take it upon ourselves to find out what’s really going on. I’m not saying that we all need to become journalists and documentarians to fix our economic woes, but as long as we keep taking the news at face value and devoting the majority of our resources to reading about the latest celebrity scandal, then real change will always be a rumor, not a fact. At least we’ll be up to date on what to look forward to for the next iPhone.

“...if all we’re willing to do is soak up whatever the mainstream media throws our way, then change is going to be pretty tough.”

Morals forgotten in sports Last week, I brought you a plea to not fear all teachers and school officials after several incidents, most notably the Penn State sex abuse scandal. But now, I’m concerned about how much power sports have over schools. For a long time, the archetype of school administrators pressuring individual teachers into changing grades of athletes to make sure the star players win the school the state championship has created a stigma for almost all athletic programs, whether or not such allegations are true. This has been the subject of various television shows: “Saved by the Bell,” “King of the Hill,” and even “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer,” to name a few. In the last case of the “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer” episode “Go Fish,” the swim coach genetically tampers with the swim team members via steroids, resulting in their transformation into creatures from the Black Lagoon. But, unfortunately, this stigma didn’t just come out of nowhere. It is a sad fact that athletics do have a lot of power over administrators simply because that is the aspect of schools in which the vast majority of the public has invested itself. Let’s take a look at the Penn State scandal, a case that revolves around the former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who allegedly abused eight boys he met via his charity. The NPR article, “Penn State Abuse Scandal: a Guide and Timeline,” states several Penn State officials are being charged with failing to report suspected child abuse. These reports came from two individuals. Mike McQueary, who was a graduate-assistant in 2002 when he says he witnessed an incident and reported the situation to former head coach Joe Paterno. Jim Calhoun, a former janitor, also reported issues in 2000 to his supervisor. However, allegations that this was happening occurred prior to these two incidents. Ray Gricar, a former Centre County district attorney, chose not to pursue charges when rumors of these activities surfaced in 1998, despite having two victims who reported that Sandusky hugged them while they had been showering in a locker room. It wasn’t until 2002 when McCreary came forward that the university did anything, simply taking away Sandusky’s keys to the locker room and banning him from bringing children onto the campus. It wasn’t until 2010 that McCreary finally testified before a grand jury that was investigating the allegations that surfaced in 2009. This jury calls the behavior “inappropriate” not “sexual” in 2011, but after the case reaches public notoriety, we have reached the current status of the scandal. But why would these people not report such behavior and abuse of children? It’s simple—money. A December 2010 Huffington Post article, “The Most Profitable College Football Teams,” states Penn State reported a total revenue of $70.2 million and a total profit of $50.4 million in the 2009-2010 school year. And as we know, money is very powerful and the root of all evil. It is quite clear that the preservation of the profitable and prestigious football program outweighed the health and safety of kids. Now, don’t take me for a sports-hating nerd, but the truth, the hard truth, is that athletic programs can throw this much weight around simply because they create so much power in the community, both through fans and the dollars they pay for tickets and merchandise. The only way we, as a nation, can reverse this thinking is to take stock of what we empower through these allegiances. Are we more aligned with football or children’s health? We are willing to let sports outweigh our morals to the point that winning one game jeopardizes the safety and futures of so many.

McDonald’s charges for toys, adds healthier choices Would paying ten cents for a toy really stop childhood obesity? An article on McDonald’s in San Francisco states that they are now charging an extra ten cents to have a toy added to a Happy Meal. This is not going to change childhood obesity, but it is a good idea for building a new Ronald McDonald House. All the dimes donated would help towards constructing the Ronald McDonald House, which accommodates families and sick children. Charging a dime per Happy Meal toy is more than acceptable, considering the money is going to a good cause. If the price was any higher, though, many people would most likely not buy the toys anymore. McDonald’s other alternatives to making the rate of childhood obesity lower are actually quite affective. Many children now order apple dippers instead of fries, and when they do order fries, they receive a small amount. In the article, Ashlee Yingling, a spokeswoman for the company, states that all McDonald’s in the United States will offer Happy Meals with apple dippers and smaller fry portions by May of 2012. This is very beneficial and everyone should have this alternative already. Children seem to enjoy them, as well. Even though McDonald’s, along with many other fast food restaurants, is trying to change to healthier alternatives, that does not mean it is to blame for childhood obesity. McDonald’s is a company that is just trying to run a sufficient business; it is not their fault we decide to eat there. They inform us about the nutritional facts and how bad the food actually is for us, but we are the ones who choose to continue eating there. If anyone is to blame for the rate of childhood obesity or any obesity for that matter, it is no one but us. That is like saying it is the cigarette’s fault that a smoker has lung cancer. We need to start owning up to our mistakes and take the blame for the reason we and our children are obese. The fast food industry is aware that obesity is becoming a larger problem in today’s society, but they do not need to go out of their way to change what they are serving to us. They have made a few alternatives to some of their items, and if they make more, then that is great. Until then, we need to learn how to say no to the foods that are unhealthy for us. We need to take the responsibility instead of trying to find someone else to blame for our actions. No one is going to force you to eat at their fast food restaurant, and no one is going to make you order something you do not want. It is purely a choice, and it is YOUR choice, so make the right one.

Prioritizing, time management and sleep ease stress Erin Friar Polite Society

“Give me an “S!” Now give me a “T!” Oh never mind, I do NOT have time to spell this word. I’m just so stressed. Whether you say stressed, crazed, flustered or can’t fit it in your schedule to come up with a word, this time of year is crazy for us all. Many times this kind of mindset can lead to fights, misunderstandings and other negative effects. With mashed potatoes and presents just around the corner, I’d like to offer some helpful tips for a successful end to the semester. Rule number one: Get it done. This is the essential key to your sanity and in many cases, your academic achievement. Now is the time to spend the extra hours finishing late work. If you spared minutes to read this, you had five more minutes to answer those reading questions you put off. In fact, put this down. Please, by all means, if you have unfinished homework, turn back to your room and Get. It. Done. Still reading? Great, that means you are a responsible student and have no make-up work. On the other hand, you could be the procrastinating type from the previous paragraph. Either way, rule 2 is a time management tip: Make a schedule. Many times, our brains play tricks on us, telling us we have a thousand things to do. However, in reality, if you get out the old legal pad and a pen, you are not likely to find more than about ten things to do. Jot them down as they come to you and then prioritize. And if you feel fancy, a timeline is a very useful tool. All you must do is stick to the list, and you’ll be done before you know it. Rule number 3 might seem a little precarious considering the schedule you just laid out for yourself. (Pretty cool how a thousand turns to ten, huh?) Regardless, Rule 3: Get Sleep. Now, the eight hours of sleep a night thing…Does anyone really do that in college? I am a huge personal advocate of afternoon naps. All you have to do is make room in your day to bring out your inner cat and snooze for about two hours. This tiny addition to your 3-4 hours of sleep you get during this time of the semester may be just what you need. Logic and reason are difficult to achieve if your eyes have not been closed in 12 hours. With all this work going on, it is essential to set aside some time for your own relaxation. While there is no medication for stress, remember these three rules. Get it done. Make a schedule. Take a nap. Okay, have you got it? We can make it through this next week with three simple steps without too many bags under our eyes. And remember, after it’s all over, we get pie.

“Whether you say stressed, crazed, flustered or can’t fit it in your schedule to come up with a word, this time of year is crazy for us all.”

The Marching Sycamores ended their season on a high note this semester with involvement in the Super Regionals and Grand National Finals at Lucas Oil Stadium. On Nov. 5, the Marching Sycamores performed for an audience of 12,000 people at the Super Regionals in conjunction with the Bands of America Music for All organization in Indianapolis, Joseph Francis, school of music, said. “It was awesome performing in Lucas Oil Stadium. I love the fact that I was able to represent the University at a marching band competition for prospective students,” said Kacie Daugherty sophomore math education major and member of Color Guard. “Going there just shows them how hard we have worked over the semester since before school

started. I love the feeling of performing out in front of crowds. It’s a great rush, and I love the excitement of the crowd.” On Nov. 12, the Marching Sycamores performed the National Anthem at the Grand National Finals. Grand National is a threeday competition in which over 90 high schools from around the nation perform, Francis said. After two and a half days, the top 12 ensembles compete for the title of National Champion. This event was in front of 35,000 high school marching band students, directors, parents and fans from across the United States. “This year, I had the honor of being a drum major for the Marching Sycamores,” said Brooke Lubbehusen, sophomore choral music education major and drum major. “It was such an amazing experience, especially since I’m a sophomore and the

other two [drum majors] are seniors. I have never conducted a band of 100 before this year, and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.” Freshman music education major and mellophone player Josh Mannix said, performing at Lucas Oil is unlike performing in most other arenas because it is so massive. “It is so awesome and at the same time so terrifying to perform in such a place because it is something that we are not used to. However, it is an opportunity that I hate passing up,” Mannix said. The performance in the Grand National Finals was in front of a large audience. For some students, it was the largest performance of their music careers. “I came from a small high school of 600 and a marching band of 30, including guard.

We didn’t compete, so the largest event we attended would be a high school football game, or Butler Band Day,” said Katherine Runge, sophomore music education major and clarinet player. “To jump from that to performing at the collegiate level, let alone at Bands of America... it was so different and so inspiring.” Students interested in becoming part of the Marching Sycamores can contact Francis and sign up. Drum major and color guard auditions will take place Feb. 27 and April 28. It is required to have past experience in high school; membership is not limited to music majors. “We are 100 members strong and are looking to grow to 125 next season,” Francis said, “If there were instruments that we need more of, it would be saxophones, trombones and tubas.”

Play Festival take stage


Every year the theater department welcomes new students into its halls. Each student who chooses to major in Theater is required to take the introductory Theater 101 class. The culmination of this class results in the 101 Play Festival. This year, 25 students entered into the class and began working on creating the pieces that will be performed. The class is broken up into three separate units, said Arthur Feinsod professor of theater. Each student begins in the writing unit where they write a short play of their choice. From there, the students move into the directing unit where each student directs a scene. After which, they all participate in the acting unit where they perform monologues as auditions. “From these, seven plays are chosen from the writing unit,” Feinsod said. “We choose them based on which plays are the closest to being ready for production.” Seven students are then chosen from the directing unit based on the abilities exhibited during that unit. The directors who are chosen then pick which plays they would like to work on and cast their actors based on the auditions done during the acting unit. “The students work on these plays

throughout the semester,” Feinsod said. “We’ve been rehearsing the plays as they will be performed since November.” There will be a variety of styles and genres performed during the 101 Play Festival. “There will be a variety ranging from theater of the absurd, comedy, drama and dramedy. One of the plays has singing in it, another is extremely poetic,” Feinsod said. The 101 Play Festival offers a stirring mixture of styles. “It was exciting to watch the students develop and gain confidence. Doing something like this takes a lot of commitment. I’ve really enjoyed watching all of their skills develop,” Feinsod said. “It takes a lot of teamwork and the ability to act as an ensemble with group support.” Feinsod said this is an excellent opportunity to see some of the students whopeople run into everyday on campus at work doing what they love. “The audience will hopefully be impressed by the talents of the new majors. I think it’s a great introduction for them and a great way to display the skills they have,” Feinsod said. “Some people will laugh. Some people will be moved. We just want everyone to come and have a good time.” The 101 Play Festival will take place Friday in the New Theater at 7:30 p.m.

Open Mic Night puts on last show for semester Shaleena Barker Features editor

Thursday Dec. 8 the Creative Writing Society of ISU hosted its final Open Mic Night of the semester. The event featured a variety of student performances such as music, poetry and literary readings. Senior communication major Faren Haas, who performed three songs with her band Dear Calypso, explained the importance of giving students the forum to express themselves. “[Open Mic Night] has a great atmosphere. Performing in front of my peers is great because students tend to be more appreciative of new artists and bands,” Haas said.

Students participated in one last Open Mic Night for the year, hosted by the Creative Writing Society of ISU. Several acts of the night included poetry read by sophomore English major Valerie Bowman (left), “Guess that video game theme song” guitar played by freshman communication and electronic media major Alex Ragle (middle) and a duet performance by senior communication majors Faren Haas and Raven Grant, also known as the band “Dear Calypso” (right).

Friday at Charleston, Ill. Eastern Illinois Dual Indoor Track and Field


The ISU men’s track and field team has a number of returning athletes and a recruiting class that will add further depth to the 2010-2011 Missouri Valley Conference championship team. Head Coach John McNichols is expecting high performances from this year’s team. “I think everybody is very anxious to get started,” McNichols said. “We have a veteran team back that won the conference team a year ago, and we have added in some outstanding athletes.” Joining the team are freshman jumper Jonathan Christensen for the high jump, who will enter the team being a high performer. Freshmen runners Gabe Osciaco and Taylor Head will be adding to the middle and long distance squads. Freshmen long sprinters Ryan Dickson and Ryan Henderson will be contributors to the long sprints. Freshman hurdler Reese Price is joining the strong hurdle squad, and freshman Robert Wesley Shenk will be competing strong for the pole vault. Returning and leading the sprinters will be senior sprinter Andrew Stull, and junior sprinters Devin Price and Justin Baxtron. All three will be returning to the track after placing in the 2011 outdoor MVC Championships. Long sprint returners include sophomores Max Tuttle, Jonathan Jackson and Brad

Adams, all who were crucial to the long sprint championship squads in 2011. Sophomore long sprinter Ray Skamay will be returning to the track after an injury and will join the long sprint depth. Stull said that developing as a team and continuing heightened attitudes is crucial to a championship team, and he hopes that the atmosphere from last year will continue into this year’s performances as well. “Winning a conference is a team effort, it certainly cannot be won individually,” Stull said. “It is crucial to develop team chemistry and enthusiasm.” Adams will also be crucial to the middle distance returning lineup, as well as sophomore runner Drew Gambill and senior runner Corey Hahn. All three athletes were a part of the 2010 indoor distance medley team that placed 4th. “As for our goals this year, we want to repeat the same performance and send as many people to the preliminary round for outdoor track,” Adams said. “ I know that almost everyone as a whole is looking forward to improving their marks from last year and setting new PRs for themselves to help score more points for the team.” Senior runners Craig Padgett and Jeremiah Vaughan, and juniors Dustin Betz and Albaro Escalara will be leading the distance races with momentum from as the 2011 MVC Cross Country Champions.

Men’s Track and Field Continued from Page 12 Padgett, who just recently broke ISU’s 10K record, will be searching for another event to dominate. Each will be contenders for the 1 mile, 3K and 5K races at 2011 MVC Indoor Championship. Returning for the hurdlers, sophomore Greggmar Swift will be leading the race with fellow sophomore teammates Jackson and Tuttle close behind. Swift was a 2011 NCAA Division 1 East Preliminary Round qualifier in the 110m hurdles, and he also placed 7th in the 60m hurdle race at the 2010 MVC Indoor Championships. Returning in the jump squads, sophomores Nigel Jolly, Marcel Hamilton, Kevin Piraino, and senior Ernest Rollins will be leading the long and triple jumps. Rollins is the 2010 MVC Indoor returning champion in the triple jump, and was also a 2011 NCAA Division 1 East Preliminary Round qualifier for the outdoor season. Jolly and Hamilton are also returning conference placers. The high jump will continue to be led by senior Major Clay who placed 11th at the 2010 NCAA Division 1 Indoor Championships and 20th at the 2011 NCAA Division 1 Outdoor Championships. Clay is also the school record holder for high jump, and he will be joined in high competition by Christensen. The pole vault will be led by senior Steven Swinford who placed 4th at the 2010 indoor MVC Championships. Joining him in leadership will be juniors Tucker Field, Dexter Childress, and junior Jeremy Pratt. The combined events will be led by junior Robert Webb, who placed 8th in both the Indoor and Outdoor MVC Championships

last year. New throws coach Erin Gilreath will be developing strong athletes for the shot put, discus throw, and hammer throw. Sophomores Chris Fields, Justin Applegate and Gregory McDaniel will be high contenders for all three events. The men’s first meet is today at the Eastern Illinois Early Bird Special, held in Charleston, ILL. beginning at 3 o’clock. The men hope to start and finish their season with as much success as last year. “I think we have every reason to be optimistic, but we have an awful lot of work to be done before we take the opportunity to claim another title,” McNichols said.

Trade the “Man”-ning? Trade away their “Luck”? At 0-12, the only thing that the Colts can really look forward to is the NFL Draft. The Colts will most likely end up with the first pick and will select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. After drafting Luck what should the Colts do if they also have a healthy Peyton Manning? Should they trade the “once-in-a-decade” Andrew Luck? Should they trade their franchise, future hall of fame quarterback, Peyton Manning? Or should they keep both of them? The first of their three possibilities is trading Andrew Luck. If the Colts decide to trade Andrew Luck, then that has to be good news for Colts fans because that would mean that Peyton Manning is completely back to full health. This option would also most likely give the Colts some great players in exchange for Luck and hopefully improve their horrid defense. This would help surround Manning with better talent. This decision would also have many negative effects also. Andrew Luck has Columnist potential and could become one of the greatest quarterbacks in the NFL. Final Score great If the Colts trade him and he becomes great, Colts fans will always be left with a terrible “what-if?” scenario. Another disadvantage to trading Luck is Peyton Manning’s age. Manning maybe has three or four good years left in him. With that said, who is to say that Manning doesn’t reinjure his neck and have to retire in less than one season? That is what could happen if the Colts were to trade Luck, but what if they were to do the unthinkable and trade Manning? Assuming Peyton Manning is healthy; the Colts could receive major acquisitions for him and surround Luck with a great team. Manning is near the end of his prime and his trade value will only decrease as he grows older. For that reason, shouldn’t the Colts “cash in” while they still can? He is Peyton Manning though; he is a proven winner, champion and has done so much for the city of Indianapolis. Should the Colts really trade the man who has been a role model and hero for the city and most of the state? Also, who is to say that Manning doesn’t win a Super Bowl with the team the Colts trade him to? Could you imagine Peyton Manning winning a Super Bowl with another team? Most Colts fans would be heartbroken.

Andrew Jones

Do you know your audience?

No one ever guaranteed Andrew Luck was going to be successful either? His trade value is great now, but what if he is a flop and isn’t the franchise quarterback Colts fans were hoping for? Who is to say he won’t be injured for a majority of his career? No one said he will be injured but there is that risk. Colts fans love Peyton Manning and want Andrew Luck for the future, so why not keep both and get the best of both worlds, right? Peyton Manning could mentor Luck for three or four years and train him to be a successful quarterback. Then, when Manning retires, Luck could step in and keep the Colts winning. This sounds like a great option, but when you look into it, is it really? Wednesday, Archie Manning, Peyton Manning’s father, said he did not think that the Colts keeping Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning would be great for either Manning or Luck. He said that he thinks Luck is mature enough to step in and play and that it, more or less, wouldn’t be a very good situation. The Colts would also lose all trade value for either Manning or Luck if they decided not to trade either of them. If they trade Luck, they can give Manning a better chance to win another Super Bowl with a better roster. If they trade Manning, they can set Luck up for success with a talented roster. If it comes down to Luck or Manning or both, the Colts have a very tough decision. Do they want to keep the proven Peyton Manning or go “all in” by trading him and put all their trust in Andrew Luck? They could play the safe route and keep both. In my opinion, I believe that the Colts should make a decision to either trade Manning or trade Luck; just don’t keep them both. I agree with Archie Manning in that it wouldn’t be fair to either Manning or Luck. They both deserve to be starting quarterbacks in the NFL, but which one should start for the Colts? I have not forgotten about what Peyton has done and how great he is, but I also realize that his best years may already be behind him. The intelligence that Manning brings to the game is an intangible that is incomparable to any other player. With that being said, I think that it is time for the Colts to move on with Andrew Luck. They may never get an opportunity for such a great quarterback again for a long time, and I don’t think they should pass this up. Steve Young came after Joe Montana and Aaron Rodgers came after Brett Favre; why can’t Andrew Luck follow Peyton Manning?
