Grounds maintenance preps for winter Lacey Brinegar Reporter

More than a month before the first day of winter, ISU’s Grounds Maintenance department is in full gear planning for snow and ice. A team of 21 full-time employees spends three months leading up to winter inspecting equipment, stocking sand and reorganizing the salt room. The ice melt product requires partial restocking at least three times during the winter. “It’s a grind; it’s a long four months,” said Stephanie Krull, landscape and grounds manager.

The December 3 event will feature entertainment by Under the Streetlamp, whose members have performed in the Tony-award winning musical “Jersey Boys.” The society, founded more than 100 years ago by notable Hoosiers George Ade and John McCutcheon and others attracted to the Midwest’s premiere city at the peak of the industrial revolution, pays homage to its roots each year by recognizing outstanding Indiana institutions and leaders in a high-spirited holiday season celebration. This year the foundation will honor Indiana State and salute the city of Terre Haute along with former Chicago White Sox pitcher Tommy John, a Terre Haute native. The society’s 106th annual dinner will take place in the Imperial Ballroom of the Fairmont Hotel at Chicago’s Millennium Park.

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.

Occupy Terre Haute members discuss progress Nick Hedrick News editor

Even as she turned out in support of Occupy Terre Haute Sunday afternoon, Gwen Baggett said she thought the grassroots organization could have a clearer message. “It needs to be a little more defined so the public understands what the purpose is,” said Baggett, of Clinton, who owns a quilting business. Nearly a month after the organization banded together as an offshoot of the national Occupy movement, Occupy Terre Haute is still working to make their presence known and recruit members. The Occupy movement began in the United States in September with a still-active encampment near Wall Street, where protesters spoke out against corporate greed and influence. The movement has since spread throughout the nation and other parts of the globe, including Europe. Less than a dozen people showed up Sunday at Max Ehrmann Plaza, located at Seventh Street and Wabash Avenue, for what was scheduled to be a regular meeting. The meetings are designed for discussion of goals and future plans. Member Michael Kite said there was no significance behind gathering at the plaza, near where Ehrmann—a famous poet and Terre Haute native—wrote his works in the early 20th Century and which the organization has adopted as an official meeting spot. Kite said the location provides members a prime spot for attracting heavy traffic to spread their message. As Kite and other members pointed signs and blew a whistle toward passing vehicles on Wabash Avenue, Baggett sat on a bench across from the statue of Ehrmann, holding a sign designed like a ballot. The choices were “Republican,” “Democrat” and “Pissed Off.” Baggett had placed a check mark next to “Pissed Off.” Baggett identifies herself as an evangelical Christian conservative who is disappointed with the overall direction of

government. She emphasized, however, that the Occupy movement must remain nonpartisan, or else risk people being afraid to support “the other party” in joining the organization. In a Quinnipiac University poll published last week, 39 percent of respondents said they viewed the movement unfavorably, compared with 30 percent who were in favor. Another 30 percent said they did not have enough information to form an opinion. Quinnipiac polled nearly 2,300 registered voters by phone between Oct. 25 and Oct. 31. The margin of error was plus or minus 2.1 percentage points. Occupy Terre Haute has spread word about its organization through Facebook and Twitter. Kite said an average of between 15 and 30 people typically attend meetings. The group has also marched past financial institutions in downtown Terre Haute and to mayoral election debates. Kite said he believed the problem of greed in government is so widespread that a single unifying message for the Occupy movement was impossible. He said there was no particular answer for solving what the movement is speaking out against. “Sitting down and having a beer with Obama isn’t going to get the problem solved,” he said. Baggett said she thought the movement would not bring any major change—she said she viewed it as a legal method of venting frustration against the government. While Terre Haute’s Occupy presence remains peaceful, national media coverage has focused on violent clashes between protesters and law enforcement in other parts of the country. Last week, riots broke out in Oakland, Calif. at the end of a daylong general strike that closed several businesses in support of labor union rights. Kite blamed the violence on outside infiltrators seeking to provoke the protesters. Baggett said the media coverage of Occupy Oakland damages the credibility of the movement. Occupy Terre Haute can be found on Facebook by searching “Occupy Terre Haute” and on Twitter at twitter.com/OccupyTHaute.

MAINTENANCE/FROM PAGE ONE The crew works every weekend from Thanksgiving to Christmas and often doesn’t get a day off from work, Krull said. In snowy and icy weather, they work from midnight to 5 a.m. to clear the campus for classes. If inclement weather hits closer to 6 or 6:30 a.m., employees typically don’t have enough time to clear paths for students heading to early morning classes. Grounds Maintenance is responsible for clearing 12.3 miles of pathways. A construction company hired by the university takes care of plowing ISU-owned parking lots and streets. “The residential student population is our number one priority, so we clear the dorms and dining halls first,” Krull said. Priorities often shift to other areas of campus, Krull said. On days and nights when home basketball games are scheduled, crews clear the areas surrounding and leading to Hulman Center. Grounds Maintenance is also aware of the popular paths taken by those who are disabled. Clearing winter precipitation is completed with a backhoe, Bobcats and trucks. Other snow equipment recently purchased includes three, 10-foot wide pusher blades, Krull said. She said the majority of the budget the grounds maintenance unit receives is from parking revenue, like fees from permits and tickets. Depending on the severity of the winter, the amount of money they spend fluctuates. In the past

few years, more funding has been necessary to clear everything, Krull said. “I don’t think there’s a fixed budget, we just have to deal with whatever comes,” Krull said. ISU budget manager Kathy Smith said around $130,000 is typically set aside for the purchase of rock salt, ice melt and plowing. Grounds Maintenance discovered one way to save money by switching their ice melt product from a calcium chloride compound to a magnesium compound. Krull said the magnesium compound is also more environmentally friendly and just as effective as the calcium chloride. “We just know what works because we’ve been doing it for so long,” Krull said. “We are constantly making slight changes to improve it.”

Could be a wet winter: The Climate Prediction Center has forecast above normal precipitation for Central Indiana this winter, said Jason Puma, a meterologist for the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

Readers speak out In reference to Miss ISU: No woman left behind? Dear editor: As I have graduated from ISU, I no longer read the Statesman on a regular basis. Today however I received a link to the Miss ISU editorial. In addition to being poorly written, it is misinformed. As someone who wrote for The Statesman, I took pride in the quality of the editorial section. This article? Oh where do I begin with this article? Do I begin with the comic, which seems to portray the antiquated notion that women cannot be smart and attractive? The illustration that shows scholarship money awarded to a girl titled “most pretty”, a title I can only hope is a poor attempt at irony and not an inferior grasp of the English language? Or is the better place to start with the downright poor journalism at play in this article? Not once is it mentioned that the Miss ISU pageant is not a search for the prettiest student to lavish money on, but a preliminary for the Miss America pageant, the single largest scholarship provider for women. IN THE WORLD. Further, the statement that these women are specifically judged on beauty is unequivocally untrue. Unlike many pageants, (Miss USA), there is no award for being photogenic or the most pretty. For that matter, if the author had bothered to go to a MAO prelim, or you know, looked up any state program, they would have found that more often than not, the most beautiful girl doesn’t walk away with the crown. OR do I start with the fact that the person who wrote this article OBVIOUSLY didn’t bother to GO to the program last Saturday? “Out of those 16 contestants, how many of them were overweight? How many of them were awkward? Too tall? Too short? How many under privileged? How many had self-esteem issues? And how many of them could easily be classified as intelligent?” There were a RANGE of bodies up on the stage- tall, short, thin and yes, overweight. And, as a matter of fact, I can speak for at least two of the other comments: There was one student competing who would be classified as low income, which I can only assume is what the writer meant by “under privileged” and the first runner up? Yep, she’s on the Dean’s List and has been, every semester she’s attended ISU. Or do I begin with the fact that NO WHERE in the article does it mention the 10 minute interview the women must engage in, as part of the program? A 10 minute interview that includes questions on current events, politics, a contestants platform, anything. AND most damaging to the premise of the article- that this accounts for 30% of a contestants score? I’m glad Miss Gay ISU and Miss Ebony (It’s not called Miss Black ISU... You’d think the STUDENT newspaper would know that, wouldn’t you?) exist. That’s great. But they are truly PAGEANTS. The production is simply about the production, there is not further goal, no platform, no greater channels for helping the world. Nor do these programs do anything to aid in a young woman’s aspirations for higher education. For those of you that don’t know, I was Miss ISU 2010. Yep, I’m sure it would be shocking after reading the article, to imagine this 5ft, rather curvy, completely literate girl, was indeed Miss ISU. Have you recovered from the shock? Ok, let’s move on. I think there are intelligent arguments that can be made about the Miss America Organization. I think it struggles with relevance and imDaniel J.

age, and I think the program suffers from a generation gap- a contestants’ generational ideals are often different from the “wholesome” values the organization wants to portray. An illustration of this? Miss America is regularly on Fox News and a guest on The 500 Club. When contestants come from a generation that overwhelmingly believes in gay marriage and watches The Daily Show for news, who is Miss America speaking to? Or if we are asking for smart, value driven women, why is the swimsuit portion still valid? While a time honored tradition, isn’t there a better way to demonstrate our pride in fitness? But this article does not ask those valid questions. Instead, this article plays into what may be an even more dangerous stereotype for women. It says that women’s identity is multiple choice- we can choose to be smart or we can choose to be pretty. We choose to be identified by our race (Miss Ebony) or we can choose to be identified by our sexuality. But we cannot be all of the above. Because smart girls wouldn’t want to work on their interview skills, right? Or showcase their talent, their enjoyment of performing? Nope. They have nothing to gain from participating in the MAO. Do me a favor. Not impressed with me, my Presidential Medal I received at graduation from ISU for Service, Leadership and SCHOLARSHIP? Not impressed with the bevy of interviews I garnered as a senior, that I was so prepared for because of Miss ISU? Or, in a struggling economy, my ability to begin a career in public relations at a multi-city ad agency? Ok. I’m not offended. I’m not that impressive. Google Kristin Chenoweth. She won several locals, just like Miss ISU, going on to compete in 2 MAO state programs, which led to an elite scholarship to further her voice training. That, one might say, contributed to her Tony wins. Google Claire Buffie. Miss New York 2010. Indiana native. Besides sporting an incredibly impressive resume, (Did I mention she’s getting her masters at Georgetown? Most pretty. Yep.) but she is also the first contestant to have a platform of gay rights- “Straight Talk for Equality” it was called. Why is this important? Well for people who support gay rights, this intelligent, well spoken, admittedly gorgeous young woman, garnered NATIONAL news coverage for her work while Miss NY. She was interviewed several times on MSNBC, discussed on Saturday Night Live, marched for Gay Marriage on RHONY, and received an award from Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, also known as PFLAG, not to mentioning her work traveling to schools across NewYork to discuss bullying and harassment. Take that cookie cutter. Google Kayla Martell. Google Kate Shindle. Google Kelly Lloyd. Google the amount of scholarship money ($45 million) that helps women go to college: law school, med school, business school. Or perhaps, take the time to Google your own school’s program. Talk to contestants, win or lose, who’ve gained interview skills, poise and confidence from MAO. Get your facts straight and stop calling young women stupid. I realize this is well past your 300-word-rebuttal rule. I also realize I am no longer a student at ISU. But as an alumnus, of both the Miss ISU program and the Statesman, I think both deserve better than this. Taylor Schaffer May 2011 Graduate Communication Major

‘Another Happy Day’ tackles family issues People always tend to think of weddings as happy occasions. If that doesn’t do anything for you, there’s usually at least an open bar. For some of the unlucky ones, however, they view it as another slap in the face that proves how sad and alone they really are. I’ve been there; it’s an awful and bitter place to be. The best example is in “Rachel Getting Married.” It was supposed to be Anne Hathaway’s edgy movie, until she basically went nude for the entirety of “Love and Other Drugs.” The movie tells a story of a family that is desperately trying to be happy and rejoice in the fact that their oldest daughter is getting married. Their fragile bubble of happiness is popped when Kym, the younger sister (Anne Hathaway), comes home for the wedding from rehab. She has sex with the best man, brings back unhappy memories of the little brother she killed and wrecks her car. The moral of the story is that life sucks, but life also goes on. Don’t watch this movie when you’re sad. I was happy when it started, and I was balling my eyes out as the credits rolled. Sam Levine decided to create his own masterpiece of family disaster with “Another Happy Day,” which opened Nov. 4. Boy oh boy, this film looks like it’s going to put “Rachel Getting Married” to shame. Where “Rachel” had one person with some serious issues and addiction, this has a whole cast chocked full of addictions and disorders. A family is once again coming together for a wedding, although the term “coming together” could be used quite loosely. The mother shows up to the wedding with the three children she raised in tow so that they can attend the wedding of their older brother. Her youngest son, who looks to be about 18, has been to rehab four times, her daughter is cutting herself and the mother herself is a complete emotional wreck. To add insult to injury, the maternal grandmother is hiding her husband’s health problems from the rest of the family, and the divorced parents of the groom have to go to a counselor just so they can talk to each other. This is Sam Levine’s first film, and it looks to be a great one. It won best screenplay at the Sundance Film Festival this year and all of the characters look interesting as hell. It’ll be interesting to see a more realistic portrayal of weddings. As Demi Moore’s character so harshly puts it, “It’s a wedding. Weddings aren’t volatile.” I guess we’ll have to see.

The Statesman cartoon

Megan Stenftenagel What’s Playing

Occupy television: are TV stars paid too much? Actors quit shows for many reasons: Charlie Sheen had mental/emotional/physical/public breakdowns. Steve Carell left “The Office” because of his blossoming movie career. Yeah, he can say he wanted to spend more time with his family all he wants, but I still don’t believe him. Chris Meloni left “Law & Order: SVU” due to a breakdown of contract negotiations. While TV shows provide a certain amount of stability, they can also wear on actors who play the same role year after year. Meloni’s show, “Law & Order: SVU,” has been on the air since 1999. Last week, Forbes.com came out with a list of “Hollywood’s Most Overpaid Actors.” For this list, Forbes analyzed Hollywood’s 40 top-earning actors and their respective compensation for their starring roles in the last five years and compared it to the operating income on those films. Drew Barrymore, Eddie Murphy and Will Ferrell took the top three spots, respectively, with Barrymore’s films only bringing in 40 cents for every dollar she is paid. It’s no secret that movie stars are paid too much, but it got me thinking, what about my beloved television stars? Are they paid too much? Of course the initial response is a resounding YES. Last

Joe Wagner Tuning in

year’s highest paid television actor was Charlie Sheen ... Yeah, Charlie Sheen; he was paid 40 million last year for his final season of “Two and a Half Men.” Am I supposed to believe that that psychopath deserved more money than police officers, firefighters, and nurses … put together? Our country’s priorities are somewhat skewed, but it’s a fact of life; movie and television actors are paid too much. I am not going to say they deserve every penny of what they are given. However, let’s look at the facts. A television star goes to the set every day for five days a week and works anywhere from a couple hours to a seventeen-hour day. It all depends on the actor’s part and what kind of show the actor works on. Also, movies normally don’t take as long to shoot as television shows, although it is true that some movie shoots can take up to a year or even longer in some cases. However, television shows are shooting for about nine months out of the year, and if the show runs for multiple seasons, then the actors are working with that schedule for multiple years. Another benefit with television actors is, they are onscreen every week for most of the year, not only with original episodes but also with re-runs. Now, there are movies that you can watch on TV, of course, but it takes years for that to happen, and they aren’t on as often as television shows that are in syndication. Yes, Hollywood actors are paid too much, and I don’t expect it to change at any time soon, but maybe TV actors earned it more than

Senior communication majors Faren Haas and Raven Grant formed their band, Dear Calypso, in December of 2010 and have known each other since 2007. They met when both arrived at ISU as freshmen in the theater department. In an unplanned bit of synchronicity, they both also transferred to the communication department at the same time. When they’re not busy rehearsing, both members have other interests that coincide with their music. Grant is also a radio personality on the campus station, 89.7 WISU, overseeing the HotMix90 weekend programming. HotMix90 focuses predominantly on hip-hop and R&B music as chosen by Grant, under the pseudonym A.K.A.R.A.E. Haas is also involved with Spotlight Entertainment where she serves as a captain. Spotlight Entertainment, their Facebook page stated, is a student run organization that has put together a number of events on campus. Through their varied extracurricular activities, Grant and Haas have had a lot of opportunities afforded to them. They were able to meet 2011 ASCAP award winner Mike Posner and also a band named Karmin, whom they refer to as having a big influence on their own music. “I want to be able to use the radio station and these things as a way to get ourselves out there,” Grant said. “Because of it, I’ve been able to talk to people in St. Louis and even New York.” Dear Calypso has performed at a number of campus events, including Sycamore Sessions, an ongoing campus event, and Bless the Mic, where students gather every Thursday at the African-American Cultural Center for performances that includes skits and praise dance as well as poetry and song. They have also made a mark out in the community as well, regularly performing on Monday nights at the Terre Haute Music Venue, and following that up on Tuesday nights at Blu Katt. Recently, Dear Calypso had the opportunity to open for the alternative-rock band, Hawthorne Heights at The Venue on October 27. Grant stated that the Bless the Mic crowds are always a very large, appreciative and respectful audience. Haas stated that Sycamore Sessions is really where the band got its start and that it feels like home to them. They both attribute a great deal of credit

Faren Haas (left) and Raven Grant (right) have performed as a band at several events, including Sycamore Sessions and the Terre Haute Music Venue. (Submitted photo) to Tracy Machtan, assistant director of Student Activities, for helping them get their music out on campus. They also said that they really enjoy just playing at the fountain and that a lot of people have come up to them from doing so. Recently, Dear Calypso added a third member to their line-up. Ryan Delaney, a senior communication major, has joined them on the drums. “Ryan is so good on the fly,” Haas said. “He picked up everything so quickly.” Since then, Dear Calypso has continued performing cover songs of everyone from Adele to Jay-Z. “If anyone has a song they want us to do, don’t be afraid to ask,” Grant said. On their YouTube account, they currently have videos of their covers of “99 Problems” by Jay-Z and “Sleazy” by Ke$ha. They are also working hard on their original music. They debuted their first original song during the Hawthorne Heights concert. “The first time we finished writing our

own song, we couldn’t stop laughing,” Haas said. “We were just that happy.” Looking forward to the future, the members of Dear Calypso are hoping to expand past Terre Haute. They are currently in talks to perform at a nightclub in Rosedale and hope to eventually make it to Indianapolis. “We want to start small and work our way out,” Grant said. They are also working on getting T-shirts made and eventually want to start working on a demo. Dear Calypso is also looking to find a bassist and someone to play the keyboard. “I just want people to enjoy it and have fun,” Haas said. “We’re just doing what we love.” Haas and Grant are open to song requests as well. Anyone with requests can email Dear. Calypso@gmail.com. They can also connect to the band via Facebook and Twitter by searching for Dear Calypso.

ISU to host tribute concert, honors father: Brothers Matthew and Gunnar Nelson remember father Ricky Nelson through music

SHALEENA BARKER Features editor

Rock musician Matthew Nelson remembers and honors his father for the contribution he made to music history and pop culture with Ricky Nelson Remembered, a multimedia formatted show that chronicles the life of rock musician Ricky Nelson. Ricky Nelson Remembered featuring Matthew and Gunnar Nelson kicks off Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in Tilson Auditorium. Admission is free for all Indiana State students. Growing up around guys like Bob Dylan was normal to Matthew Nelson and his brother Gunnar, Matthew Nelson, son of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ricky Nelson, said. His father was one of America’s first pop and rock ‘n’ roll idols and son of one of America’s first sitcom couple Ozzie and Harriet. According to the Museum of Broadcast

Communication, the Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, a situational comedy that featured the couple’s real life marriage and family life, was one of the longest running sitcoms in history. The show, with its 14 year long run, broadcast Ricky Nelson’s first foray into music when he performed Fats Domino’s I’m Walking as a part of the show’s plotline. The broadcast instantly launched Ricky Nelson’s music career. “I’m really proud of [the family’s legacy]. Each generation has made a mark on pop culture,” Matthew Nelson said, “We’ve continued to do things that make people happy.” According to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the television show brought rock n roll into the homes of American viewers at a time when people were skeptical of it, which is arguably one of Ricky Nelson’s biggest contributions. If it wasn’t for my father, Matthew Nelson said, rock ‘n’ roll may never have existed. Ricky’s sound, Matthew Nelson said, was more of a laidback country-rock type

of vibe. The sound influenced bands like the Eagles, whose bassist Randy Meisner originally started off playing for Ricky Nelson. Ricky Nelson went on to have hits such as “Hello Mary Lou,” “The Travelin’ Man,” and “The Garden Party”. Despite growing up in a show business family, the Nelson brothers never felt any pressure to follow in their father’s footsteps, Matthew Nelson said. Nelson’s mother, who grew up in the time of sex and rock ‘n’ roll, didn’t want them to play or practice at all. “The funny thing is,” Matthew Nelson said, “if it had been required of us to follow in our family’s footsteps, we would not have had the drive to succeed.” Matthew Nelson and his brother’s path to success was a little harder than the average band’s, despite his family’s connections, Nelson said. “Your name might open up a door or two,” Nelson said, “but it comes with different expectations. “You’re guilty until you’re proven innocent.”

Matthew Nelson, who lists his father as his biggest musical influence, and his twin brother Gunnar have sold over six million albums with their band Nelson. During their performances, Matthew Nelson said, people see the influence their father had on their music and style. “People who come to see us perform say it’s remarkable how alike we are,” Matthew Nelson said, “Who I am as an entertainer can’t help but be a part of who he was.” In addition to honoring their father in their performances, Nelson and his brother created Ricky Nelson Remembered, a multimedia format show that follows Ricky Nelson’s lifetime and career. He deserved it, Matthew Nelson said, so he and his brother wanted to create a show that encompassed all of the mediums their father was a part of. “My father was one of the most televised pop stars in history,” Matthew Nelson said, “so we had to have a show that reflected that, something that would do him justice.”

Pi Kappa Alpha cleans up Terre Haute

www.indianastatesman.com

Visiting Artists Series gets cultural

Jessica Neff Reporter

Members of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity hit the streets as they attempted to beautify Terre Haute by cleaning up railroad tracks on First Street on Saturday. Approximately 30 members were present at the community service event. Spencer Timberlake, president of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, said, “A member of another fraternity approached me and wanted to do a joint community service. We agreed and set up a time, place and date to meet.” However, the other organization was unable to attend. Philip Cornelius, a junior recreation sports management major and member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, said, “Pike has cleaned up the tracks for a few years, and I have personally participated for three years.” Timberlake turned the clean-up into a game to see which brother would find the most interesting piece of trash. “The winner will be bought a McDouble by me,” Timberlake said. It turned into multiple winners when two members each found a hub-cap; one was from a Ford and the other was Chevrolet. Tommy Lynch, sophomore elementary education major and associate educator of Pi Kappa Alpha, said, “It’s events like these that make me proud to be a Pike. Knowing that we are out helping the community is a good feeling.” Pike has been hard at work helping the community this week with their “Change for Change” program and Saturday’s event. The members are reminding other organizations that even the slightest change can mean a world of difference for someone in need. In the spring, Pike ISU and Pike Rose Hulman will work together to sponsor the annual Pike fire truck pull in which organizations send representatives to pull fire trucks 100 meters at Marks Field by the Ronald W. Scott College of Business.

The Indiana State School of Music is bringing the sounds of Chinese culture to campus today at 7:30 p.m. in Recital Hall. Pianist Zhu Lingbing, alongside the Faculty Brass Quintet, will take the stage as part of the Visiting Artist Series. The performance will mostly consist of Chinese piano and brass music. Lingbing will play half of the program of Chinese music, featuring Chinese

traditional folk songs. She will later accompany the Faculty Brass Quintet during the second half. The members of the Faculty Brass Quintet joining Lingbing on stage include: Robert Waugh, trumpet; David Amlung, trumpet; Brian Kilp, horn; Randall Mitchell, trombone; and Glen Dimick, tuba. Brian Kilp, professor of music history and horns, said that years of practice are required for preparing for a concert like this. He, along with the Brass Quintet, performed with Lingbing in China the past two years dur-

ing the summer. They will be traveling to Capital University in Columbus, Ohio Tuesday and repeat Monday’s performance with Lingbing. Kilp took it upon himself to set most of this performance up, along with Chris McGrew, director of the office of International Programs and Services (IPS). “Many people are involved in their visit, with help from the School of Music and our Director Dr. Nancy Cobb Lippens, IPS, The Cunningham Library, and The ISU Foundation,” Kilp said. Lingbing has participated in many international music festivals, including the first Liszt International Piano Festival in Shenzhen in 2006, the Nanshan International MusicWeek in 2008 and 2009 and the Summer Music Festival in Harbin. She has been appointed as the permanent Solo Pianist of Baoan district Music Hall in Shenzhen. Dr. Kilp hopes that those who attend leave the performance with a new appreciation for piano and brass music and Chinese folk melodies.

Jessica Squires and Mel Loveall Editor-in-chief and Reporter

The ISU football team fell to number-one-ranked North Dakota State University 27-16 despite the fair fight. “It’s not what we didn’t do; it’s what they did,” head coach Trent Miles said after the game. The Bison defense focused on containing sophomore tail back Shakir Bell. For the season, Bell averages over a hundred rushing yards per game, but on Saturday, Bell rushed for a total of 79 yards. Senior quarterback Ronnie Fouch threw 19 of 38 for 249 yards, two touchdowns and one reception. The Sycamores quickly turned the ball over to NDSU on a three and out 1:29 into the game. NDSU took the turnover for a 15-play drive putting the first points on the board with a 39-yard field goal. The Bisons controlled the time clock through the rest of the game, topping ISU’s possession time by 15:52 overall. The Sycamores quickly responded with 6-play drive of 76 yards, tying the game with a 22-yard field goal. The back and forth continued through most of the first half with each team taking turns scoring touchdowns, tying the game at 10-10. The Bisons pulled ahead with a second touchdown by sophomore running back Sam Ojuri with 9:51 left until half time. Neither team scored the rest of the first half, ending in an ISU missed field goal attempt by sophomore full

back Austen Wozniak. Both teams came out of the locker room to a stagnant third quarter. Regardless of an interception early in the quarter, NDSU didn’t score until 2:09 into the fourth quarter. NDSU regained possession after NDSU senior left end Coulter Boyer sacked Fouch, causing Fouch to fumble. NDSU senior linebacker Chad Wilson recovered the ball putting NDSU sophomore quarter back Brock Jensen at the ISU 13 yard line. After four plays, NDSU senior running back DJ McNorton ran the ball in for a touchdown, making the score 27-10 with 7:44 left in the game. Both teams took turns punting before Fouch found sophomore wide receiver Donald Spencer in the end zone on a two-yard pass. The Sycamores tried for a two-point conversion but were unsuccessful making the score 27-16 with 3:01 left on the clock. The Sycamores held the Bisons the remaining four plays until the clock winded down giving the final score NDSU 27 ISU 16. “In the past, when we’ve played North Dakota State, there was so much difference in talent,” Miles said. “Now I don’t feel like it’s different in talent; it’s different in execution.” The Sycamores return to action this weekend when they travel to Springfield, Mo. to take on the Missouri State Bears. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m.

Women’s volleyball defeats Evansville Purple Aces and SIU Salukis in weekend conference matchups Shelby Young Reporter

ISU vs. Evansville Indiana State women’s volleyball hit the road, for the final away game of the season, to take on the Evansville Purple Aces Friday night. The Sycamores swept Evansville 3-0, final set scores 25-20, 25-22 and 25-17. “I cannot say enough about the effort and determination this team has,” head coach Traci Dahl said. “They want to win. They have worked hard and we have faced a lot of adversity this year. I am so proud of each and every one of them.” This was ISU’s first away win in the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) this season. Set one started with an early lead from the Sycamores, but the Purple Aces were not going down that easy. Evansville fought back to tie the score at 5 and again at 6. The last tie was broken with a service ace by sophomore outside hitter and right side Molly Murphy. A kill by sophomore outside hitter Monique Morris brought the score to 9-6, ISU, and they never lost the lead. Evansville came within one on many occasions but the Sycamores did not let them pass. A block by Murphy and freshman middle blocker Samatha Kersting ended set one. Final score 25-20, ISU. Set two was a tighter match. Throughout the set, the score tied seven times and there were five lead changes. Evansville’s last lead was ended by back to back kills from senior middle blocker Stacy Qualizza putting ISU in the lead, for good, at 20-19. After a kill by Murphy and senior setter Shelbi Fouty, ISU came to a lead of 24-21. A final Murphy kill ended the Sycamores’ score at 25 and the game at 25-22, ISU. Set three was another close match as the game tied seven times and changed leaders twice. Both of the lead changes came early in the set, and Evansville had an early advantage, but not for long. Two Qualizza kills put the Sycamores in the lead 7-6. Evansville tied the set for the final time at 7, but two more Qualizza kills brought ISU to a 9-7 advantage. The Sycamores started to slowly pull away. The game winning point came from a Qualizza kill assisted by Fouty. Final set score 25-17, ISU, and a 3-0 win by the Sycamores. Qualizza recorded the second highest single-game hitting percentage in school history as she led the Sycamores to the win, knocking down 23 kills with no errors on 31 attempts for a career high. Qualizza also led in blocks with five. Fouty led the team with 34 assists and senior defensive specialist Kiya James led the team with 15 digs. ISU vs. Southern Illinois University

ISU women’s volleyball wrapped up their final away weekend of the season against Southern Illinois University Saturday night. The Sycamores won the game 3-1, final set scores 25-20, 25-23, 21-25, and 25-13. This marks the team’s first back-to-back road victories in the MVC since 2003. This brought the Sycamores to a 13-13 on the overall season and a 5-10 in the MVC. ISU started out with a 6-0 lead in the first set, but Southern Illinois came back and tied the score at 8 and again at 9. The last tie was broken by a Morris kill and a block by junior middle blocker Shea Doran and Kersting putting the Sycamores back in the lead 11-9. ISU slowly started to extend their lead, with their biggest advantage at 24-15 after an ace by Fouty. The Salukis did not give up easy and denied the Sycamores set point four times before ISU finally closed it out. Final set score was 25-20, ISU. Set two did not start out as well as set one with the Salukis scoring the first five points. ISU remained behind most of set two, but never stopped fighting. The Sycamores fought to tie the score at 14, 15 and again at 16 before a kill by Doran gave ISU their first lead. A Murphy kill, followed by a block by Qualizza and Doran put ISU in a 19-17 lead. SIU rallied to take a final lead at 20-19, before ISU fought back again and took the lead for good. A Qualizza block and a service ace by James put the Sycamores at a 23-21. ISU closed out set one with a 25-23 win. Set three began again with SIU having the advantage, but ISU rallied to dominate the middle portion of the set. The Sycamores had their biggest lead at 15-12, but was broke by a SIU four point rally. The set became tied three more times, the final tie at 20 from a Fouty kill. The Salukis closed out set three scoring five out of the next six points. Final set score was 25-21, SIU. Set four was all in favor of the Sycamores. After a kill by Murphy, followed by a service ace, ISU took the lead and remained in the lead. ISU pulled away with two Kersting kills and a Morris service ace to a 9-5 lead. ISU kept moving up as the Salukis stayed behind at 13. ISU took set four at 25-13 and the game 3-1, ISU. Morris and Murphy led the team with 13 kills a piece. Fouty lead with 40 assists and James led with 27 digs. The weekend victories moved the Sycamores into sixth position in the MVC. Previous number six, the Drake University Bulldogs, were defeated by the Wichita State Shockers this past weekend. The top six teams are invited to the MVC tournament for post-season action. Next up for the Sycamores will be a non-conference matchup against the IUPUI Jaguars at the ISU Arena on Tuesday. Only three games remain in the conference. The first will be Saturday when ISU hosts Illinois State University.

Lady Sycamores defeat Bellarmine Knights 84-39 Shelby Young Reporter

The Indiana State women’s basketball defeated the Bellarmine Knights at Friday night’s expedition game; giving the fans a preview of the upcoming season. ISU dominated the Knights 84-39, with every player contributing at least one shot. “I feel better in the fact that we have more pieces. Last year, we didn’t have the number of kids or depth on the perimeter,” Head Coach Teri Moren said. “I wish we were a little deeper on the inside, in terms of bodies, but eventually it’s going to come along nicely.” The Sycamores were 33 of 71 from the field and made eight 3-point shots out of 21 attempts. ISU was 10 of 14 from the free throw line (71.4 percent). Senior center Shannon Thomas, senior guard Brittany Schoen and senior guard and forward Deja Mattox led the team in scoring, and each finished the game in double figures. Thomas was 6-10 from the field and Schoen led the team in 3-point shots, knocking down 5 of 7 attempts. Sophomore center Sadie Oyer led the team in offensive rebounds at three and Thomas lead with seven defensive rebounds. “I am glade everyone got in and got to play. You could see the depth in our team. It gets me excited just to see what comes for the rest of the season,” Thomas said. ISU won the tip off for the first half. A 3-pointer by sophomore guard Anna Munn put the Sycamores on the board first. Bellarmine fought back to tie the game at five but ISU put them in their place with a Schoen 3-pointer assisted by junior guard Taylor Whitley, putting the Sycamores in a lead they never lost. With 15:19 remaining in the first half, a defensive rebound sent the Sycamores down the court to set up sophomore forward Andrea Rademacher for a jumper shot which extended ISU’s lead, 11-5. The Knights snuck in one more baskets before ISU took off with a 14 point run, including two free throws by Whitley, a 3-pointer by Rademacher and a 3-pointer by Schoen, bringing the score to 25-9. ISU went on another 14 point run, with 6:20 remaining in the first half. The run consisted of three layups by Thomas, a free throw and layup by Whitley and Mattox and a layup by freshman guard Natasha Zurek, keeping the Sycamores in the lead at 47-16. The final point in the first half came from a Bellarmine jump shot, ending the first half 47-18, ISU.

The second half opened with a 3-pointer by Schoen assisted by Munn. Schoen kept it up with two more 3-pointers, followed by an Oyer layup, which brought the Sycamores to a 58-23 lead over the Knights. With 11:10 remaining in the second half, ISU went on a six point run consisting of a free throw by Mattox, a jumper by Rademacher and a jumper by freshman guard Jessica Valley. ISU kept racking up points with a 3-pointer by sophomore guard Nikki Gunning assisted by freshman guard Travecia Franklin, followed by a layup from Franklin, bringing the score to 80-36. The Knights scored two more 2-pointers before ISU wrapped up the game with a layup by freshman forward Racheal Mahan. Final game score was 84-39, ISU. “I am excited, especially after tonight, seeing how we put everything together and how we worked well as a team; knowing are strengths and our weaknesses, we need to get better with our weaknesses but defensively we took it up to the next notch,” Schoen said. The Lady Sycamores return to Hulman Center Friday to kick off their preseason against Detroit. The game starts at 8:05 p.m.

“I am glad everyone got in and got to play, you could see the depth in our team. It gets me excited just to see what comes for the rest of the season.” Shannon Thomas, senior center

Men’s Basketball outscored Truman State 87-33 Ace Hunt

ISU Athletic Media Relations

The Indiana State men’s basketball team posted a dominating victory in their lone exhibition game of the 2011-2012 campaign as they rolled past the Truman State Bulldogs 87-33 in Hulman Center. Indiana State will open the regular season on Friday when they host the Eastern Illinois University Panthers with the tipoff set for 5 p.m. (ET). “This is an unselfish group of young men,” Greg Lansing, Indiana State men’s basketball coach, said. “We were able to play everyone and did well overall, but there were places where you could see that work needs to be done.” Freshman Devonte Brown led a balanced Sycamore attack with two treys, two field goals and three free throws for 13 points in just 14 minutes of work. Senior Dwayne Lathan contributed 12 points on four field goals including one three-pointer and three free throws. Senior Jordan Printy added two three-pointers and a pair of two-pointers for 10 points. The game got off to a slow start with sophomore Jake Odum scoring the first bucket of the contest two minutes in. The Sycamores rolled to a 9-0 lead before the Bulldogs broke onto the scoreboard with a pair of charity tosses by EJ Hicks. Indiana State scored the next 10 points despite a continuous flow of substitutions into the game. The Sycamores continued to dominate play to lead 34-17 at the half. Indiana State kept up the pressure in the second half and used an 11-0 run midway through the period to build a 47-22 advantage. That lead continued to grow through the remainder of the game with players from both teams seeing considerable action. Everyone who played for Indiana State scored. Lucas Eitel had nine points, Odum eight, Carl Richard and Myles Walker seven even, R.J. Mahurin six, Justin Gant five, Steve McWorter and Jake Kitchell four each, and Brandon Burnett two. Kitchell had seven rebounds in the game while McWhorter had

five assists. Indiana State shot 60 percent from the field (33-of-55) and was 55 percent (11-of-20) from beyond the arc. The Sycamores were also 10-of-11 at the free throw line (91 percent).

“This is an unselfish group of young men. We were able to play everyone and did well overall but there were places where you could see that work needs to be done. Greg Langsing, ISU men’s basketball head coach
