Summerfest in Campustown

Businesses in the Campustown area and the Campustown Action Association came together to host Summerfest. Businesses hosted games, activities and food for visitors. The night was capped off by several performances by local bands and performance artists, such as Leslie and the LY’s.

The ribbon was cut for the Ames Intermodal Facility on June 9 during its grand opening. The facility has been an ongoing project since 2009 and is expected to be a source of economic impact as well as revitalization for the Campustown community. Peter Rogoff, administrator of the Federal Transit Administration, came to Ames all the way from Washington. He said the project was selected as one of 51 candidates out of 1,400 applicants in what can be described as “a truly brutal competition from projects sent to [Administration] from all over the country.” In a phone interview with the Daily before the ceremony, Rogoff said the facility will enhance economic growth in the Campustown area by managing the lack of parking in the area. “Not only will it enhance economic growth with the 80 jobs it already has created but additional parking was needed in the area, and it should serve as a springboard to jump-start the Campustown community,” Rogoff said. Sheri Kyras, director of Ames Transit and CyRide, said the facility is not open yet but should be opening within the next week or so. From opening day until July 30, people can park for free within the facility.

One-on-one with Stephanie Carlson By Aimee.Burch Getting an internship is hard. Getting one in a good location is even harder. Stephanie Carlson, however, is living the dream. As an intern for U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, Carlson is spending part of her summer in Washington. The other part of the summer will be spent back in Iowa working with the Iowa Pork Producers. She recently spoke with the Daily about her job and her time in Washington.

How did you get this job? This past fall, I went to the Iowa State College of Agriculture career fair. I saw the Iowa Pork Producers there and picked up an application. From there, I went through an interview process and found out I got the internship. I had heard about the internship before but actually checked it out at the career fair.

What do you do at this internship? What are your duties? I’m spending the summer with pork producers and with Sen. Chuck Grassley. I’m working on Capitol Hill for six weeks in Grassley’s office to see how they work with their constituents on farm bills and other agricultural policies. After that, I’ll come back to Iowa and coordinate and run the [Iowa] Pork Producer’s tent in August at the Iowa State Fair.

Have you always been active in politics? My interest lies in agriculture. I’m very pas-

sionate about the swine industry in particular. So I’m interested in politics as far as the agriculture industry goes. I find myself interested in how the government works and how the regulations can affect agriculture production.

Have you had any experiences or memorable moments while in Washington? It has been awesome so far working on the Hill. Being in the senator’s personal office and seeing how different governmental officials work with each other to accomplish the common goal of working for the American people. It’s been fun to explore the city and get together with other ISU interns working in Washington. I’m really looking forward to spending July 4 in the capital.

What are your future plans? I’ll be a senior in the fall finishing an animal science degree. I see myself working in the swine industry as a leader and advocate for all things pork. I see myself maybe working with an organization or the pork producers educating on government affairs.

What advice would you give to other students needing an internship? It’s really all about networking and getting out there, meeting with and talking with people. The more people you know, the more opportunities you’re going to have.

ISD road trip: Clear Lake Music history, mazes await in Clear Lake By Frances.Myers “A long, long time ago, I can still remember how that music used to make me smile. And I knew if I had my chance that I could make those people dance. And maybe they’d be happy for a while. But February made me shiver with every paper I’d deliver bad news on the doorstep. I couldn’t take one more step. I can’t remember if I cried when I read about his widowed bride. But something touched me deep inside the day the music died.” “The day the music died.” If you have never heard the classic “American Pie,” by Don McLean, you may be unaware of what this phrase refers to. Even if you have heard the song, you may be unaware of its deeper meaning. The day the music died refers to the fateful day when the plane carrying rock ‘n’ roll icons Buddy Holly, J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson and Ritchie Valens crashed near

Clear Lake, Iowa. They had just finished up a concert on Feb. 3, 1959, at the famed Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake. For this week’s road trip, the Daily decided Clear Lake was a place that offers a little bit of everything. You like music? Visit the Surf Ballroom. So many great acts have performed there, including Waylon Jennings, Faith Hill, The Who, Santana, REO Speedwagon, Kansas, Alice Cooper, The Doobie Brothers, B.B. King, ZZ Top, Martina McBride, Lynryd Skynyrd, as well as so many others. A couple of upcoming shows include Kevin Costner and Modern West on July 13 as well as Kris Kristofferson and Merle Haggard on July 24. Looking for a challenge? When we arrived in Clear Lake, we felt like a challenge was just what we needed. Therefore, we checked out the Fort Custer Maze. For $6, you can challenge yourself and some friends to find your way to eight different checkpoints within this maze. It is covers an area of just less than two acres and has two miles of trails to walk or run on. The objective of this timed

maze is to find the eight stamps located within four corner towers, three bridges and one central outlook post. If you do this with some friends, it can be a really good time. Are you more of an outdoors person? Lo and behold, there is the lake, appropriately named Clear Lake. Here, you can go fishing, boating, swimming or do like we did and just enjoy the breeze while

sitting on the dock. Be careful if you take your flip-flops off, though. One of our staff members had hers blow into the water. Luckily, the same strong breeze carried it swiftly onto shore. For food, we decided the Boathouse Bar and Grill would be nice. Open 5 to 10 p.m. daily, the Boathouse is conveniently located right next to the Surf Ballroom. A casual grill, the

menu consisted of steak, seafood, barbeque and sandwiches. We stuffed ourselves on some great fried food, thereby reclaiming all those calories lost in the maze. Going to Clear Lake made us realize a few things: Live life now. Go to the lake with your friends. Get lost in life’s twists and turns. Find your way out. Have fun. And most of all: Live your life to your own tune.

‘Urinetown’ storms ACTORS stage for comedic family fun By Levi.Castle

The Ames Community Theater has a musical on its hands that features a cast, script and choreography unlike any other. Director Stan Rabe’s production of “Urinetown” is entering its second week of showing at the ACTORS theater in Ames, and there is no slowing down for anyone involved. “Urinetown” is a Tony award-winning musical set in a fictional universe where a 20-year dry spell has turned water and anything having to do with it into a rare commodity. With the vital liquid in such short economic supply, toilets are luxuries ruthlessly exploited by the corporation named Urine Good Company. In the story, the company’s monopoly over water has led to CEO Caldwell B. Cladwell (played by Bill Helms) to contemplate and implement an expensive admission to use public toilets. All the while, Cladwell is in cahoots with Senator Fipp (played

by Mike Miller) to ensure his greedy desires are met. If a citizen lacks payment for relieving themselves at a toilet, they earn themselves an irreversible sentence to the feared Urinetown. When a poor man urinates on the street and has no way of paying for his actions, he is thus sent to the city as punishment. The man’s family’s ties to the daughter of Cladwell kicks off a musical story full of dancing, singing and comedy. Two years ago, Rabe first saw the show performed on Broadway in New York City and was so impressed, he saw it again. Since Rabe has been an active Ames Theater participant since 1982, he felt that the ACTORS theater could — and should — host their own adaptation of the tale. However, this was on one condition: “I told the board of directors I wouldn’t do the show unless my theater friends Sue Glass and Cynthia Marten could do it with me,” Rabe said. “Their

>>URINETOWN.p6 guidance and friendship was important to me; I wanted to share this experience with them.” His two colleagues promptly joined him, Glass being the choreographer and Marten the music director. With a plan in place, casting for more than 30 roles was the next and most meticulous step in the process. Rabe said that audition invitations were sent out and online information was posted to help draw in a crowd of actors ranging from elementary-aged children to senior citizens. It worked without a hitch. The people that responded eventually came together to create what Rabe called “the funniest and friendliest cast of talented people I’ve ever met.” Among the broad age spectrum of actors and actresses in the show, six are students at Iowa State. Samantha Koontz, sophomore in performing arts, is making her ACTORS debut with “Urinetown.” “I started acting in first grade with a touring company, and moved on to plays and musicals in middle and high school,” Koontz said. Playing as the promiscuous and shady Nurse for Cladwell, Koontz said the best part about

acting is getting into the character’s mind. “Acting is really the only thing I want to do,” Koontz said. “I love being on stage.” Koontz heard about the audition through Brandon Brockshus, another ISU student acting in “Urinetown” and junior in performing arts. The two are joined by ISU students Melissa Krepfle as Soupy Sue, Ben Moews as Officer Barrel, Maggie McGinity as Cladwell’s secretary and Mason Tyler as Mr. McQueen. The show, as hinted by the name, is built around comedic timing and taking the unexpected paths in a story full of twists and turns. “The audience catches all the jokes while still recognizing the fun that the show pokes at corporate corruption and legal systems,” Rabe said. “It’s such fun to experience something that we can relate to while laughing too.” The show is produced by Jane Kennedy-Funk and coproduced by Jeff Blevins. Performances resume with shows on June 15, 16, 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees June 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20, with $15 prices available at the Sunday matinees. Tickets can be purchased at Gallery 319 in Ames or reserved by calling 515-232-2354.

Cupcake Emporium whips up personality By Frances.Myers Walking in, the atmosphere feels like something out of the ‘50s. Oldies music plays in the background, just loud enough to be heard but not at a distracting level. The smells of chocolate and peanut butter waft through the air, luring customers to a display case filled with rows upon rows of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes topped with frosting, sprinkles, caramel, peanut butter cups and cherries. The style of the place is unique, just the way the owner, Tawnya Zerr, likes it. “I definitely didn’t want a place where a guy would come in and feel like he had to hurry

up in here and get out of here,” Zerr said. “I didn’t want a pink place like most of the cupcake places are.” Everybody told her she was crazy to think such a thing could bring a profit. But that did not stop Zerr from opening her own shop on Main Street in Ames. Now she is the proud owner of a thriving Cupcake Emporium. “They thought I was crazy,” Zerr said. “I mean, now cupcakes are everywhere, but two and a half years ago, it wasn’t in the Midwest at all yet. I remember telling people at church and they were like, ‘Ooh what are you doing? Well, you know Johnny just lost his job.’ That’s all I ever heard was,

‘Oh that’s not smart.’” Graduating from Des Moines Area Community College with a degree in welding, baking may not be the first thing that comes to mind when utilizing such a degree, but baking had become a hobby of Zerr’s while in college. “Once I went to college, I got sick of noodles within a month,” Zerr said. “So I started trying to figure out how to make my own food. From there I started realizing that homemade things were much better than store bought things. So I started getting pickier and pickier and then I only wanted fresh, homemade things.” When Zerr opened up the

Cupcake Emporium, she started with around 30 different flavors of cupcakes. Now she has over 90 different flavors. There are the typical flavors such as red velvet, chocolate and vanilla. Then there are more unique ones, such as pink champagne, peanut butter and jelly, beer, and dirt and worms. “We pride ourselves in actually having cupcakes that taste like the flavor they are,” Zerr said. “It started with the fairly easy flavors most stores have. From there, I just kept thinking of more and more things. I’d see something at the store and think, ‘How can I make that into a cupcake?’” Sara Johnson, sophomore in event management, started working at the Cupcake Emporium in July 2011. She said the business caught her eye because it “wasn’t a corporation.” “I like how it’s unique to itself,” Johnson said. “There’s not many places like it, and that threw me in. I heard about it my freshman year, and it had just opened pretty recently. I was looking for a job, and I thought Main Street would be the perfect place to find a job. It was pretty funky, and I liked that.” Johnson had aspirations of opening her own cupcake shop when she was in high school. “Since working at the Cupcake Emporium, I’ve realized how much work is put into it. Tawnya is great to work for, and I see everything she puts into it. She’s taught me a lot,” Johnson said. “It’s been a great experience, but I realize now that having my own business isn’t necessarily something I want to do.” Since opening, the Cupcake Emporium has been asked three times to audition for the popular television reality show Cupcake Wars. The first time, the shop had just opened so they were unable to make the deadline for submitting a video. The second time, the Emporium made the deadline but was taken out of the running because the

Zerr said the next thing she

hopes to do is to expand the store. “We need a bigger place. Weekends are crazy here with all the orders. We definitely need another oven, and we definitely need three times the space in the back. So that’s what we’re looking for next is either knocking down a wall or finding a new place.”

After set-asides, plenty more to be done Every once in a while a bone gets thrown our way. Last week, the Board of Regents voted to eliminate scholarships funded by your tuition dollars. If you’re just joining the ball game, they call this “tuition set-aside.” Essentially, under Regents direction, Iowa State takes 23.5 percent of your tuition and puts it in a scholarship pool, from which the tuition of other students is paid. The Board of Regents mandates its schools take at least 15 percent for set-asides because, in their defense, the state of Iowa lacks an adequate scholarship program. The vote to eliminate set-asides raises all sorts of questions; the main one among them is: What will be the effect on students? That set-asides exist isn’t exactly the problem, though. What invokes the ire of most is the sheer amount of money taken. If the percentage isn’t bad enough, however, it was discovered students from wealthier families received an average award of

about $1,000 more than students who were qualified only for need-based scholarships. But no longer. Responding to public pressure, the tuition set-aside program will be phased out within five years. If the Board of Regents and Iowa Legislature want to get serious about making Iowa a state that leads the country, they should make it an attractive place to spend four years getting an education. Part of making higher education in Iowa accessible is making it affordable. The Regents plan to work with the Legislature to fund need-based scholarships. Right now, the numbers being kicked around in Des Moines range between $25 million and $40 million for the new allocation. That’s certainly a big number and requires a lot of discussion, but in a state with hundreds of millions of dollars sitting in surplus right now, any figure within that range ought to be doable. Educating Iowa’s and America’s citi-

zens certainly seems just as important and essential, and perhaps more so, as paving roads after all. With respect to merit-based scholarships, one proposal is to use the Regents universities’ private fund raising foundations to provide the merit-based scholarships to academically accomplished students. Considering our very own ISU Foundation has raised nearly $1 billion dollars in just the last few years — that’s billion with a “b” mind you — we can be confident that a few dozen million dollars for the scholarship pool is attainable. In fact, there’s no limit to how much money the foundation can raise for us. Imagine 50-percent-tuition scholarships for everyone someday... The fair result of eliminating setasides is a reduction in tuition equal to the amount given by the universities to other students. Decreasing tuition by 23.5 percent as well as continuing to provide scholarships based on both need and merit would

make Iowa State an immensely affordable — not to mention exceptionally competitive — university. Alternatively, failing a 23.5 percent reduction in tuition, the Regents universities could solve their budget woes by plowing the $150 million currently raised by set-asides into hiring new professors to teach students in smaller class sizes and on new facilities in which to teach those students. Departments would no longer suffer, shrink or disappear; in fact, we could afford to restore valuable programs and revitalize our focus on the long lost liberal education side of our land-grant mandate. Whatever the Board of Regents decides, whether to cut 23.5 percent from your U-bill or just keep the money and roll it into education funding, students and taxpayers need to stay on top of this issue. What’s next then? Call Board of Regents Presidents Craig Lang and Bruce Rastetter at 515-281-3934 and ask.

Comic book heroes: real-life role models


n today’s world, celebrities have replaced heroes and heroines as society’s role models. No longer does the average American look up to people because those people did something to truly set themselves apart from and above the rest of us. Instead, we look at people because they are on our TV screen. Heroes, not celebrities, are the role models we should imitate to make our actions ring out with greatness. For example, I am sure Kate Middleton is a fine person, but if little girls want to be like her, what exactly should they be doing? Celebrities like her cannot act as role models for being a better person because they have no role other than being just another person. It is only when we try to emulate the great deeds of heroes that we end up bettering ourselves and the world. That greatness will be something like the inventiveness of the Wright Brothers or the courage and leadership of George Washington. In a world that cannot find its heroes, we are without our guiding stars. We have no more shining beacons of men and women that show each of us the path to greatness. We still can find such illuminated heroes, however, if we simply pick up a comic book. Comic book heroes are probably best known for their boy scout attitudes and spandex outfits, but in a world lacking in real-life heroes, comic books do offer promising stand-in exemplars. All we need to do is look at these illustrated actors as models we can emulate. Before anyone starts jumping in front of bullets or taking on whole buildings of bad guys, though, it is important to realize comic book heroes as models are just that: models.

By Phil.Brown Being inspired by Superman defeating Lex Luthor doesn’t mean we all need to go harass a rich bald guy; it means we need to look at our lives and find similar ways to make ourselves closer to being “great.” Spider-Man may be able to save a runaway train from crashing into a stranded van, but at the heart of that act, he is taking an inherently riskfilled action to help others. We do not have the web-slinging abilities of Spidey, but we can still act. We cannot all patrol New York City every day, but when even a small opportunity to act presents itself, we can seize it. The thing to think about when trying to emulate heroes is not the scale of the action but the action itself. One specific way comic book heroes show us how we can act is their penchant for sticking up for others. Not to say we can all defend the world like Captain America by kicking Nazi tail across Europe, but we can stick up for others around us. When we see someone being bullied or harassed, we do not have to stand there and pretend to not see it, we can speak up and put a stop to it. Leading by example, not by word or donation, is an important distinction we can see comic book heroes exemplify. Bruce Wayne does not hire himself out to speak about making Gotham City a better place, just as he does not give piles of money to Gotham police. He actually goes out as Batman and punches bad guys like the Joker in the face. He shows everyone else what can be done. He does not just tell them or give them money with the expectation they will do something about it. A man who gives his

neighbor a power drill to build a birdhouse does not feel pride for having built a birdhouse, just as a donation of money should not make someone feel like they have taken an action to be proud of. We all have our own unique talents and skills that truly can be used to make a difference in the world, if we can only see greatness where it lies and attempt to create it in ourselves for the world by acting, like our comic book heroes do.

Photo courtesy of ISU Athletics Shane, left, and Wally Burnham coach side by side during a game at Jack Trice Stadium. When Wally was hired in 2009, he recommended his son Shane to ISU football coach Paul Rhoads. The two now spend time together on the sideline, with Wally as defensive coordinator and Shane as defensive tackles coach.

ISU coaches share family life of football By Alex.Halsted

Their offices sit side by side at the Jacobson Building, just north of Jack Trice Stadium. It makes sense for a father and son who have long shared a passion for football. Wally Burnham has coached for more than 40 years, and for many of them, his son Shane has followed right along. “From the time he could take care of himself and go to practice with me and hang around and not get in trouble, I started taking him with me before school to two-a-day practices,” Wally said. “He would sleep in the office and go up to the dorms with the football players.” Starting at a young age, Shane experienced

football at its best. He attended bowl games, met famous players and, most of all, spent time with his father. “[Football] was in his blood; it was in his everyday life,” Wally said. “Coaching consumes a college football coach. It takes time, and it takes away from the family. But you spend a lot of great time together traveling to different stadiums and different experiences going to bowl games.”

Playing for his father During his senior year of high school, it did not seem likely Shane would play for his father. Wally was at Florida State, and Shane said he knew he would not be recruited there.

But after the season in which Wally moved on to South Carolina, the possibility of playing for his father came to fruition. As a freshman, Shane joined his father’s team as a linebacker for the Gamecocks. “I was miserable the first two years,” Shane said. “I thought I could be mature enough to handle getting yelled at by your father — ­ and then off the field he’s your dad — but I couldn’t.” For his first two seasons at South Carolina, Shane rarely saw game action. His father said there were difficult moments the two had to work through. “We had our tough times just like I have tough times with some other kids I coach, but he could always go home to [his] mom,” Wally said with a laugh. “It’s hard to separate on the field

father-son, coach-player relationships.” But Wally said they worked through it, and during Shane’s junior and senior seasons it showed as he got on the field as a starter and excelled as an inside linebacker for the Gamecocks. Shane jokingly said playing for his father became easier because there were fewer mess-ups on the field and less yelling. Regardless of the struggles during the initial years together, both agreed the time together was special. “It ended up being an unbelievable experience for me,” Shane said. “For us to catch up on lost time — when you’re a coach’s kid, you don’t get to see dad as much — we got four years where I saw him more than I did the previous eight.”

BURNHAM.p15 >>

>>BURNHAM.p14 A call to coach football Shortly before Shane graduated college, he told his mother they needed to talk. She knew what it was about: Shane wanted to coach football. Barbara Burnham did not want to hear Shane say it. She looked to her friend Ann Bowden, wife of former Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden, who also had sons who wanted to coach. “I asked Ann what she told them, and she said, ‘You know what Barbara, if they can live without it, then they need to do something else. If they can’t, then Bobby told them to coach,’” Barbara said. “And I said, ‘Knowing Shane and the way he does everything, he probably can’t live without it.’” Shortly after, Shane would find out the same thing. He gave coaching a try for a year at the University of Richmond but moved on to selling pharmaceuticals. It was in his time away Shane realized how much he loved football. “I think eventually he got away from [football] and realized, ‘Hey, this is what I want to do with my life,’” Wally said. “In coaching it can’t be a job, it has to be something you enjoy doing everyday and I think he found that part about it.” Shane knew he needed to get back on the field. Waking up each morning in his new job, the first thing on his mind was the end of the workday. “In coaching I never have that, I never feel like I’m coming to work,” Shane said. “If a doctor wrote my prescription, I didn’t get a rush. But if one of my defensive tackles makes a play on third-and-five or a third-down stop, I want to jump through the roof.” So Shane got back to coaching. He coached at Richmond again from 2001 to 2003, he spent a season at Citadel and then coached at Elon University from 2005 to 2008. That’s when he got the phone call that would put him back with his father on the football field.

Coaching with his father Sitting in coach Paul Rhoads’ office during his interview in 2009, Wally was told there was one remaining coaching position left to fill. “We started talking about it, and he said, ‘If you could hire who you wanted to, who would you hire?’” Wally said. “And I said, ‘You’re probably going to think I’m crazy, but I would hire my son Shane.’” Rhoads decided to take some time to think about it but eventually called Shane to interview him. Shortly after, Shane was offered the job and joined his father on the staff. Since then, the two have shared the memories of bowl games and big wins as their defenses have led them to big victories, including one last season against No. 2 Oklahoma State. “Those are certain things that you could coach all of your life and they’d never happen,” Shane said. “For it to happen for you in addition to coaching alongside your father, it’s unbelievable.” Growing up, all Shane ever knew was football. “When I was little, I had no idea. I thought everybody’s dad left at 7 a.m. and came home at 10:30 p.m. from August until January,” Shane said. “I didn’t know any different.” Today, Shane is married to his wife Meagan and has two daughters, Lindsay and Brady. With football, Shane learned from his father. Now he has used Wally’s other life lessons in his own relationships. “When he goes on the road, he often goes shopping and brings home the cutest little dresses for those girls,” Barbara said. “He builds his off time around their schedule because he wants to compensate for all the absence that there is in this profession.” Barbara said Wally was a great father to Shane and their other two children, Patrick and Allison, despite his commitments on the football field. Wally said he sees some of

himself in who Shane is today. “There are certain things that I see in him that I saw in myself years and years ago,” Wally said. “I think it’s the entire package coming together and I think he’s going to be

successful and be a coordinator and a head coach hopefully one day.” For now, Shane continues to spend time next to his father, following his football footsteps.

Totally Tuff Question?

Answer from page 21

In the original 1933 movie King Kong, what was the name of the island on which the great ape was discovered? The correct answer is... Skull Island This original version was released four times between 1933 and 1952, and each release saw the cutting of additional scenes. Though many of the outtakes - including the censored sequence in which Kong peels off Fay Wray’s clothes - were restored in 1971, one cut scene has never been found. It is the clip in which Kong shakes four sailors off a log bridge, causing them to fall into a ravine where they are eaten alive by giant spiders. When the movie - with spider sequence intact - was previewed in San Bernardino, Calif., in late January, 1933, members of the audience screamed and either left the theatre or talked about the grisly sequence throughout the remainder of the film. Said the film’s producer, Merian C. Cooper, “It stopped the picture cold, so the next day back at the studio, I took it out myself”.

Answer from page 22

Did you know? The models of King Kong were only 18 inches high.
