Turk to consider student feedback in theater decision

A reward of $10,000 is being offered by missing ISU student Jon Lacina’s parents for any information leading to the location of Lacina, who has not been seen since Jan. 22. According to the ISU News Service, Tom and Alesia Lacina announced the reward Thursday. The sum of $10,000 could be paid to Lacina one person or divided among several people who provide leads that lead to Lacina’s location. The reward will only be given for information not available to the public, and no reward may be given to any law enforcement officer. Donations can be made to the reward fund that has been set up in accounts at Grinnell State Bank and Patriot Bank in Grinnell. If the reward is not helpful in locating Lacina, the accounts will be closed. Funds not used to pay the reward will be given to charities that support the arts. For more information on the reward, see www.news.iastate. edu/news/2010/feb/rewarddetails.

In an e-mail sent on Sunday, Jon Turk, president of the Government of the Student Body, said he is still contemplating his decision on what to do with the Varsity Theater bill passed by the GSB Senate 28-2-0 in Wednesday’s meeting. Turk can sign the bill, not sign the bill and Turk wait six days, which would still allow the bill to become law, or veto the bill. If Turk chooses to veto the bill, the GSB Senate can override the veto with a two-thirds vote. In the e-mail, Turk said he would probably make his decision late Monday. “I am still receiving feedback from students on campus,” Turk wrote. If signed and approved by the Board of Regents, the bill would allocate approximately $400,000 of GSB money from the capital projects and investment accounts to the creation of a studentfocused “Cyclone Cinema” in the home of the former Varsity Theater, 2412 Lincoln Way. The funds would support renovations and first-year expenses.

Benevolent guidance By Jennifer Dryden Daily Correspondent Note: This story is part one of a three-story series on Ruth Phillips and her journey to becoming a birth mom of four, adoptive mom of six and a foster mom of more than 65. The Phillips family resides in Story City, but Ruth works in the Ames area. Catch the next parts on Tuesday and Wednesday. A 10-year-old girl stands on your front porch; her neck strains as she

meets your eyes at a 90-degree angle. You are complete strangers. A Department of Human Service worker stands about a foot to the young girl’s right and introduces her as “the one we spoke about.” You smile as you kneel to meet the silent girl’s eye level. The DHS worker shakes your hand, dryly says, “Good luck” and leaves. “I have a job for you. I need you to check my house to make sure it’s safe,” Ruth Phillips said to the child. “I want you to walk through every room, open every closet, every drawer, every dress-

er, everything. And then when you are all done checking, come back to me. I will stay here in the living room. I will not move. I need you to check the house.” Ruth Phillips, Elevate program supervisor and foster, adoptive and birth parent, remembers this day as if it were yesterday. It was the day she had met one of her 65 foster children. Although this young girl wasn’t the first of the children she helped, Phillips can remember every first day with all of her foster children, especially the six

she would eventually adopt. Ruth is also a birth mother of four. Having children wasn’t the problem, but seeing how the foster care system was lacking in the late 1980s sparked her initial passion for helping and healing young adults. She says her big heart didn’t stop her when the National Organization for Victim Assistance training — the basic six-hour foster parent program in the 1980s — told her not to attach.

International Students

Family, friends find each other for Chinese New Year festivities By Abigail Barefoot Daily Staff Writer

Space portrayed by dance By Chelsea Davis Daily Staff Writer Dancers leapt and spun across the stage Saturday night at Fisher Theater. Orchesis I, ISU’s modern dance company, held its annual show, Barjche, this weekend. The group’s 35 members all took part in the show, using the stage, props and each other to convey their theme: space. “The first half dealt with inner space and the second dealt with outer space,” said Aubrey Orisek, sophomore in integrated studio arts. “It deals with the build-up of space and sharing space with other people.” The first half, titled “The Importance of Being Here,” featured a wide range of dances. Some were more classically-based, others were modern and contemporary, while one involved bicycles and another had the three male members yelling and flailing, making the audience roar with laughter. The latter piece, titled “Asking Ourselves, Answering Ourselves,” started out as an improvisational piece in a modern composition class. The three men circled around a chair, each making a sound and the others halfmimicking him. As the scene progressed,

Auditions for Orchesis I will be Thursday from 7–8:30 p.m. at Forker Studio 196 The group’s Web site is www. stuorg.iastate.edu/orchesis1 Orchesis I meets Thursdays from 7–9 p.m. at Forker Studio 196

their sounds became louder and louder and the dancers moved faster and faster around the chair until the climax, when one kicked the chair across the stage and stormed off. “It started there with us just playing games,” said Michael Schneider, senior in performing arts and president of the group. “It’s about communication and trying to understand each other.” During the show’s 20-minute intermission, there were site-specific dances in the

lobby. Small groups of dancers gathered in different areas of the lobby to perform these “mini-performances.” Some dances were on tables, against the Drenter walls, on the stairs or just running around. After intermission, the dancers performed their interpretation of outer space, with crazy hairdos, painted faces, bubbles and tap dancing. “It feels like a Black Eyed Peas music video,” said Melanie Drenter, senior in computer science. During the one-act second half, dancers came up into the aisles, while others danced on stage. Eventually the dancers put on tap shoes and started tapping away. Finally they used three metal bed frames of different heights, dancing on them, climbing over them and blowing bubbles atop them. “Ever since last year we wanted to use bubbles,” Orisek said. The group has been rehearsing since October 2009, with three-hour rehearsals Sundays and all of last week rehearsing at Fisher.

While many ISU students were celebrating Valentine’s Day on Sunday, another holiday was being celebrated: Chinese New Year. Yue Zhao, junior in landscape architecture, brought in the new year by singing a traditional song with three of her friends at the Chinese Students and Scholars’ Chinese New Year Celebration at the Great Hall in the Memorial Union. For Zhao, it’s a different experience celebrating in the United States compared to past new years back in her hometown in China. The Chinese New Year puts an emphasis on being with family and celebrating together. Unlike some ISU students, students from China cannot simply drive back home for the weekend in order to see their families and then make it back Monday for class. Their homes are on the other side of the globe, so making trips between college and home are rare. International students must find new ways to celebrate the New Year in a different environment without seeing their families. ”Here I am without family. I celebrate with friends, [who are] like a new family,” Zhao said. Many of the Chinese students at Iowa State celebrated the holiday by hosting potlucks and small gatherings for friends at their apartments. Many of these dinners have dishes inspired by their home country or are family favorites they can share with friends they have made at Iowa State. One way the transition into celebrating this new year was made easier was by the annual Chinese New Year celebration hosted by the Chinese Students and Scholar Association. The event began with a dinner of Chinese food that was provided by the King Buffet, 1311 Buckeye Ave. The celebration continued with performances from various ISU students. There were traditional Chinese dancers as well as modern dancers. The night included live music from singers such as Zhao and her friends and featured traditional Chinese music. There were also live art performances to help celebrate the first day of the Chinese New Year. After the Chinese Students and Scholar’s New Year’s party, Zhao had a dinner gathering for her friends, where they talked and discussed last year and the upcoming year. She fought the distance between her family and herself by talking with them on Skype, a video messaging program. In her own way, she found a means to celebrate traditionally by being with her family back home. The Chinese New Year is a celebration to remember the events of the past year and to welcome the new year, and many students at Iowa State did it their own way while keeping with traditions.

Providing portable power Flexible film uses sun rays, charges devices on the go By Micaela Cashman Daily Staff Writer PowerFilm Solar Inc. is utilizing the skills of many ISU alumni to revolutionize solar energy. In 1988, Dr. Frank Jeffrey, who earned a doctorate in physics from Iowa State, teamed with fellow 3M researcher Dr. Derrick Grimmer to start their own company when 3M decided not to continue researching thin film technology. Mike Coon, vice president, also graduated from Iowa State with degrees in agricultural education and international studies. He later went back to school to earn his MBA. Coon said Jeffrey decided to start his company in Ames because of his experience at Iowa State. “He knew that ISU had a supportive environment,” Coon said. “Office space was provided for him, and he recognized there was a strong pool of talent at Iowa State.” That strong pool of talent, Coon said, has helped PowerFilm Solar succeed over the years. “We hire lots of Iowa State alumni,” Coon said, “with degrees in electrical, mechanical, material and chemical engineering, as well as physics and business majors.” Coon said that while solar energy may not have been conventional when PowerFilm Solar first opened, it has gained recognition recently. “In the past two years, there has been a tremendous amount of mainstream interest in solar energy,” Coon said. He added that many of the company’s products can be seen around Ames and on campus.

CyRide bus shelters use PowerFilm Solar’s flexible panels, and the Ames Police Department uses magnetic solar panels. “Right now we’re working on smaller products, some that can be integrated into bags or clothing,” Coon said. PowerFilm Solar also makes a foldable USB charger for iPods and Blackberrys, and they custom engineer their own equipment. On a larger scale, PowerFilm Solar has developed Powershades, which are solar-fueled tents, for the military that can hold two kilowatts of power. According to its Web site, the company also provides the military with foldable solar chargers that can charge laptops, cell phones and GPS units. “We supplied the military with an initial quantity for them to try out, and it’s gaining popularity,” Coon said. “There’s a lot of interest in using products and providing power at a low-cost basis. They want to reduce the gas-fueled power they use.” Coon added that PowerFilm Solar is currently in the lead with fabric integrated products and solar tents. “This is the ultimate tailgating tent,” Coon joked. Besides the military, Coon said they also provide their products to disaster relief organizations. “We recently provided some of our products to Haiti,” he said. Coon said PowerFilm Solar has experienced “great growth and has significant potential. The company began with a lot of thought and good choices in its core technology. We had a lot of options, and we’ve proven to be a strong foundation that we will continue to build from.” PowerFilm Solar products are available online at www.amazon.com, or visit the company online at www.powerfilmsolar.com.

Ames property management companies are teaming up for the 2010 Housing Expo on Tuesday from 10 a.m–4 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union. The event is a great time for students to go searching for next year’s apartment, and an opportunity to meet landlords and staff of various property management groups, said Mike Frisk, manager at First Property Management. “There’ll be 21 different tables of different landlords,” Frisk said. “There’s also going to be a couple vendors.” In addition, the event will be raising money for the Ames Emergency Residence Project, which helps prevent local families from losing their homes and helps those that have. “We’re just trying to give back a little bit,” Frisk said. Frisk said that a portion of each landlord’s registration fee from the event will go toward the Emergency Residence Project. In addition, the Expo will host the second annual Running for the Homeless fundraiser. “We have runners running throughout the day from 10[a.m.] to 4 [p.m.],” Frisk said. “We’re going

to see how far they can run in those six hours.” The Expo is organized by the Ames Property Managers’ Network. “It’s not a formal legal entity, but that’s what we’ve been calling ourselves,” Frisk said. “It’s just a place for landlords to meet.” While Ames’ landlords do compete for renters, they also work together, through the Ames Property Managers’ Network, to address issues common to all and to put on events similar to the Housing

A lot of us market different ways.” Frisk said that students who attend the Expo can register for a drawing that includes prizes such as a 42-inch flat-screen TV, an iPod Touch, a motorized scooter and gift cards to Walmart, Best Buy and Hy-Vee.

Cheer on your favorite team this Olympics

St.Valentine’s fever

Every two years, we all get a chance to band together against the world. We all don our USA gear, we watch things we wouldn’t dream of watching at any other time — we’re talking to you, curling — and we get understandably upset when a French figure skating judge’s decisions seem a little sketchy. There’s always good drama and controversy, and you know that Bob Costas will have a story that will pull on even the tightest of heartstrings. For two weeks in the winters and summers of even-numbered years, our national pride outweighs anything else in our lives, distracting us from even the most disappointing things around us — for instance, a 73–59 loss at Kansas on Saturday. But isn’t rooting for the United States in the Olympics a little like being a Yankees fan or cheering for North Carolina in March? Of course, we bring home a boat-load of medals. But shouldn’t that be expected for the nation with the most athletes competing? Don’t get us wrong: We love Apollo Anton Ohno, Lindsay Vonn and Shaun White as much as anybody else, but there’s more out there than just the red, white and blue. Over the 14 days that remain in competition, the 2,415 other athletes not clad in USA clothing will likely dazzle and amaze you. Our friendly neighbor to the north, Canada, will give us at least one feel-good story in an event they weren’t supposed to win. Or, you can watch the stacked hockey team — featuring names like Sidney Crosby, Jerome Iginla and Martin Brodeur — take to the ice seeking the country’s eighth gold medal and its first since 2002. The Canadians also put on a wonderful show with their opening ceremony — despite some technical difficulties and appearances from Sarah McLachlan and k.d. lang — and gave us the opportunity to see “The Great One” one more time, when Wayne Gretzkey lit the torch Friday night. Germany will likely pose the greatest threat to the American’s podium hopes, however. The Germans took home the most golds from Turin in 2006 and won the overall medal count with a games-high 29. But what about the countries that were only able to qualify one athlete? Don’t tell me you don’t want to see the athletes of Tajikistan, Jamaica and Ethiopia bring home a medal. What could possibly make for a better story? Possibly the story of the athletes of the Republic of Georgia. Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili, 21, died during a training run Friday at Whistler’s luge course, a track that has been called the fastest in the world. Athletes of the games have questioned if things are being pushed too far, and the start of the luge course was moved down the track to reduce speeds, but the real impact came during the opening ceremony. The seven Georgian athletes who walked in had donned black arm bands and scarves to honor Kumaritashvili. A black ribbon had been draped across their red and white flag. They were greeted with the warmest welcome the 60,000-plus crowd at Vancouver’s BC Place could muster, but the looks on their tear-stained faces told the story. International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge said Kumaritashvili’s death “clearly casts a shadow over these games.” But through the shadows there will be a story for everyone. Even if you’re not a Yankees fan. Go world. Editor in Chief

No money to spend on Varsity Theater Wait, why do we want this theater? Don’t we already have a lack of money? Personally, I’ve felt the effects of the budget cuts, as have all of the students here. Iowa State has increased tuition for all of its students, cut wages of employees and reduced the budgets of each of the colleges. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it appears to me that Iowa State is

If GSB really feels the need to spend money, why don’t they spend this money on helping students fund their college education? I know I’m not the only one that pays out-of-state tuition and I know I’m not the only one paying for my education out of pocket — for the most part. When tuition increases, that means I have less money to do the things I would really want to

do — but not necessarily need to do — such as go to the movies with my friends or buy a new video game. My point is that if we get this theater and keep the tuition hikes and wage cuts and whatnot, I still won’t have the money to utilize this theater. And I’m sure there are other students and faculty members that are sitting in a similar situation.

Genuine interest, creeping completely separate ideas Being only 20 years old, I have gone through some pretty amazing things. None of these things can really compare to my chase of and obsession with girls and many gorgeous, dazzling women. The one thing I’ve noticed — and it drives me crazy — is their ability to thoroughly judge a person. Although it’s normal for a person to judge right on contact, or maybe at sight, this is a different type of judging I’m talking about. I’m talking about a word that has been used to describe many men, and rightfully so, but in most cases the word “creeper,” is used so unfairly that it’s starting to irritate me. One thing I’ve noticed about women using the word “creep” is that anybody can qualify for that label. Nobody, and I mean nobody, is immune to the word, especially the guys who actually are creeps. I didn’t realize that telling a woman your true feelings is such a bad thing. Shouldn’t they have the right to know these things? Isn’t that how the best love stories happen? The thing that annoys me the most about the term is that you could be the nicest guy on the planet. There’s a girl you’re crushing on, you don’t call her, hardly even talk to the her, but you ask her on a date or to hang out sometime and the answer is “no” because you’re a creep. Is that really fair?

Tyler Prussing is a sophomore in pre-journalism and mass communication No, they label people they haven’t even given a chance, and why? They have no answer besides the fact that he’s a “creep.” The guy hasn’t been texting her like crazy, hasn’t been calling her or stalking her, so I really don’t get why and how they can label a guy like that a “creeper.” When I think of the term “creep,” it can be brought back to the two or three traits previously stated. A “creep,” to me, doesn’t give up on the girl and is consistent at asking the girl out and saying creepy things, and there’s a big line between the two. Telling a girl that you think she’s gorgeous and you’d love to hang out with her sometime is not the same as a guy saying, “Hey, you’re pretty hot, we should bang sometime.” Now, that’s creepy. Girls need to find the fine line between the creepers and the non-creepers, because the whole injustice that millions of men have faced is really starting to irk me. So, ladies, leave that awful term at home and save it for the guy who is actually a creep — for the guy who sends texts all the time and has a habit of sending you Facebook messages, not the guy who sits three rows back in your journalism class and finally gets the courage to ask you out. Thanks.

Movie Review:

‘Wolfman’ ensemble offers a worthwhile venture

H

orror films can range from scary to twisted to gory to thriller. Very rarely does a horror film actually touch on all fronts the genre can touch on, but “Wolfman” does. The casting is the first part that makes this movie stand out. First up is Academy Awardwinner Anthony Hopkins, who has actually gained an even more awe-inspiring, masterful creepiness, with age. He now has a better twisted psychological bent than he did for the Hannibal Lector character, and he gets the bonus of having an even more regal bearing than ever. Next on the casting list — Academy Award-winner Benicio Del Toro. This guy is an actor straight out of a time warp. The ability his face has to subtly and dramatically show emotional changes is astounding, while his demeanor and approach to the art of acting is, as mentioned above, like the actors of days gone by, when an actor had to prove his worth without the help of a voice — on top of it all Del Toro has a strong acting voice.

unbridled, animalistic mentality that can cloud intellect and makes all of humanity wonder where their breaking point might be. This is already a more daunting subject than most movies dare to address, and when many do, they butcher the philosophy of the notion through terrible story-telling, superfluous effects and a want for money rather than believing success comes to those who offer something great. Classic horror was an exercise in understanding what it is to be human, what it is to be a part of society. This idea has been lost thanks to many of the money-grubbing morons who have somehow wandered into the positions of deciding whether a movie should be made. Now, a little mindless entertainment — madcap action that’s only purpose is to support the action itself, empty stories that are only there to provide a few laughs and the ever-unimpressive story fashioned to showcase emotion that serves only to impress an art house full of pretentious philosopher

Gabriel Stoffa is senior in communication studies and political science from Ottumwa.

To complete the A-list talent comes Hugo Weaving. While not an Academy Award winner, his voice and the characters he has portrayed have already been further immortalized in cinematic history than some Oscar winners have ever dreamed. Each of these actors becomes their respective characters excellently. The characters have a depth to them, from the first screen appearance that collects and pools out, without any over-dramatization or obvious pushes to “woo” and “wow” the crowd — they do this only through their natural affinity for acting. As to story, “Wolfman” is one of the only remakes of late to remain an homage to the original tales, rather than tarnishing the original’s reputation. The wolfman legends brought to the silver screen back when

movies were still black and white mixed fear with wonder and a human bent that much horror produced today has no idea how to even attempt to touch on due to shoddy and uninspired writing. This modern remake stays true to the old way of telling a story. To let it unfold rather than pushing a bloody stump in the audiences’ face or insult moviegoers’ intelligence by “pretending” the ending was anything other than expected. From the get-go everyone knows the tale of the wolfman ends in tragedy and death, with a whole lot of hatred from the ignorant and intolerant carrying their torches aloft to light the “righteous” path. This is a true tale of terror revolving around man and monster. The wolfman is lost to the greatest, most frightening aspect that man has: the beast within. The

The meeting between the pseudo-hero of the story, Del Toro, and the original wolfman should be something that makes the story whole. Instead, some jackass along the chain of command decreed lame fighting akin to a male-soap-opera wrestling match should be employed in order to make the film more like much of the modern crap that is thrown at an audience’s feet today. Luckily this fight scene lasts for only a couple minutes and is slightly interrupted with an attempt at quality story-telling, but those few minutes truly sour much of the beauty that could have been. For anyone wanting some simple entertainment, it will do the job. For anyone wanting to delve deeper into the world of cinematic revelation, it is worthwhile venture. Just remember what “Wolfman” definitely offers: A look into what it means to be the human animal … without having to use teenage werewolves with six-pack abs fighting vampires who sparkle.

wannabes — is fine to make, but if the afore mentioned factors should not be the primary selling point to green-light a movie. “Wolfman” gives audiences almost everything that sells a movie but without compromising its soul — much. For all the traits of classic filmmaking that can be lauded about this film, there also are the modern influences. The effects are OK. Available technology is used to create very believable situations, but they suffer from not having the hundreds of millions of dollars needed, apparently, to create the beautiful and artificial scenes audiences appear to crave — I’m looking disgustfully at you “Avatar,” ugh. The scenes where the wolfman is busy killing and maiming are pretty good, a little too silly at some parts, but good nevertheless, except for toward the ending. There is a fight scene that should be an emotional ride of fulfillment — both effects and story-wise — for the audience, but that falls flat in its execution.

American brings home first medal By Arnie Stapleton AP Sports Writer WHISTLER, British Columbia — The Americans broke through the Nordic combined barrier Sunday, winning their first Olympic medal in the sport dominated since its inception by the Europeans. But it could have been even better. Jason Lamy Chappuis — who was born in Missoula, Mont., but has always raced for France — overtook Johnny Spillane on the final straightaway for the gold medal, winning the individual race in 25 minutes, 47.1 seconds, fourtenths of a second ahead of Spillane. Italy’s Alessandro Pittin won the bronze, finishing eight-tenths of a second behind Chappuis and just ahead of American Todd Lodwick. Spillane and Lodwick, both of Steamboat Springs, Colo., took turns leading the way for much of the race. Spillane looked to have an insurmountable lead as he made his final turn, but Chappuis surged to the front to win the event, which features one jump on the normal hill and a 10-kilometer crosscountry race. Lodwick started in second place behind Finland’s Janne Ryynaenen, who had the longest jump of the day. Spillane started in fourth, 44 seconds behind Ryynaenen and Chappuis in fifth, 46 seconds behind the leader.

Women’s Basketball

Baylor beat down Three-point shooting aids in blowout of No. 15 team By Travis J. Cordes Daily Staff Writer It was such a solid 20 minutes of basketball that even Bill Fennelly had a hard time finding something to complain about. The ISU coach has been known to have the ability to pick apart even his team’s most sucPrins cessful performances, but the way the Cyclones played against Baylor left him with little to say at halftime. “We could not have played any better,” Fennelly said. “When you play a team like that and you’re up 20 points at halftime, even with someone as crazy and goofy as me it was hard to find something to yell about.” Even before the game tipped off, ISU women’s basketball had caught fire, as it converted on each of its first four attempts from 3-point range. It soon turned into one of those days when players made it look as easy as throwing a tennis ball into a swimming pool, as the Cyclones finished 16-of-32 from behind the arc against the nation’s sixth-best 3-point defense. Second-half leads got as high as 31 points, and the final buzzer concluded a 69–45 dismantling of the No. 15 Bears (17–7, 4–6 Big 12). “I don’t think there’s a question that, from start to finish, offense to defense, that was the best 40 minutes we’ve played all year,” Fennelly said. Iowa State (19–4, 7–3) jumped ahead with a 16–2 opening run led by center Anna Prins, who knocked down two 3-pointers on her way to scoring eight of the Cyclones’ first 13 points of the game. The freshman spent most of the game being followed by Baylor’s 6-foot-8-inch Brittney Griner, an early favorite for the NCAA’s Freshman of the Year Award. Early on, Prins took advantage of Griner’s tendency to float around in the paint, catching the Baylor defense off guard by stepping behind the perimeter and knocking down her first two 3-point attempts. And all Griner could do was stretch out her enormous 88-inch wingspan in hopes of making a distraction as she was stuck virtually standing still in the middle of the lane. Complimenting Prins in the same facet was forward Amanda Zimmerman, who also knocked down her first 3-point attempt of the game and ended up leading the Cyclones with 15 points. “One of our main focuses today was for [the post players] to step out because Griner stays in the lane so much,” said junior Kelsey Bolte. “So for them to step out and hit threes early and make her come out of the lane really helped us get open shots.” Due to hot shooting from post players, Baylor was forced to divert some of its attention, leaving more opportunities for ISU guards to get open shots.

Frenchman wins gold in poor weather

Cyclones suffer 10th straight loss to Kansas

By Mattias Karen AP Sports Writer WHISTLER, British Columbia — Lashed by sheets of rain and snow, Vincent Jay of France won a biathlon gold medal in his Olympic debut Sunday, while Norwegian great Ole Einar Bjoerndalen finished 17th in the 10-kilometer sprint at the Vancouver Games. Emil Hegle Svendsen of Norway won the silver medal, 12.2 seconds back. Jakov Fak of Croatia got the bronze, finishing another 1.8 seconds behind. All three medalists were among the first 10 starters, who were able to ski their first two laps around the course before the snowfall began. “I was very lucky as far the weather conditions,” said Jay, who had bib No. 6 among 88 racers in the interval start event. “But the shooting was all my doing and had nothing to do with the climate.” With thick snowflakes reducing visibility and slowing late-starting skiers, the big-name favorites soon fell out of contention. “I thought for the guys coming in behind, it was going to be hopeless,” Svendsen said. “The conditions have played a very big role today. But that’s the way it goes. That’s outdoor sports. You can never predict what’s going to happen.” Tim Burke, hoping to become the first American to win an Olympic medal in biathlon, had a disappointing day. Burke missed three shots and finished 47th. Jeremy Teela was the best American, ninth place despite missing two shots. Jay capitalized on superb shooting and a little luck, with the flurry of wet snowfall making conditions difficult for most of the favorites.

As usual, the Hilton crowd was intense, which may have been the cause for bobbles by the Bears. “I thought the tone for our game was set when we got the first possession and shot an air ball wide open,” said Baylor coach Kim Mulkey.

The No. 2 Cyclones (12–2, 3–0 Big 12) defeated No. 17 Missouri (7–7, 1–3) by a score of 28–10 in front of a raucous Hilton crowd Sunday afternoon. “We’ve been going from one coast to the other, and there’s nothing better than wrestling in front of your home crowd, and especially a crowd like ours,” said junior Jon Reader. “They’re family to us and we’re wrestling for them.” The 174-pound matchup exemplified the meet’s theme of tightly contested battles and proved to be the emotional victory of the after-

noon. Senior Duke Burk held a 1–0 advantage over Missouri’s Dorian Henderson going into the third period, but Henderson tied the score with an early escape. After a stalling warning Burk against Henderson in the second overtime period, Burk grabbed the lead on a quick reversal and pinned Henderson with four seconds left on the clock. The pin got the crowd roaring and gave the Cyclones a 17–0 lead early in the afternoon. “When you’re on the road and the crowd goes crazy, obviously it’s because things aren’t going well for you,” Burk said. “I’m always a big believer in when you have support like that,

LAWRENCE, Kan. — It took Bill Self less than 17 full seasons to get to 400 wins. He doubts many coaches of his generation will stick around long enough to approach 800, the sort of numbers put up by giants like Bob Knight and Dean Smith. Brackins “I think it’s different now,” Self said Saturday night after his No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks used a second-half surge to beat Iowa State 73–59. “I don’t think there’s going to be a lot of guys who win 800 from this point forward. I think the business has changed enough where guys aren’t going to coach for as many years as they had. Hamilton And also, coaches are making more money now so you don’t have to work as long to retire.” Marcus Morris and Cole Aldrich each had doubledoubles for the Jayhawks (24–1, 10–0 Big 12) and Xavier Henry and Tyshawn Taylor fueled a 14–0 run to raise Self’s overall record to 400–146. It was also consecutive home victory No. 56 for Kansas, the second longest in school history and just four shy of the record set during the Roy Williams era. Self, who spent the week downplaying his milestone victory, was given the ball in a brief ceremony right after the game. “He keeps saying it doesn’t mean anything to him,” said senior guard Sherron Collins. “But it means something to us, that we were a part of it.” Craig Brackins, who once scored 42 points against Kansas and has always been tough for the Jayhawks to handle, had 18 points and 10 rebounds for Iowa State (13– 12, 2–9).The Cyclones quickly cut a nine-point halftime deficit to 38–-35 on a bucket by Brackins. A moment later, Brackins hit a 3-pointer and Self called a time out with a shaky 40–-38 lead. Marquis Gilstrap and Justin Hamilton each had 11 points for Iowa State.

“And from there it went downhill, I don’t think we were ever in the game.” As Baylor’s performance spiraled downward, the intensity in Hilton continued to rise. Poppens Early in the game, the Bears had shot four shots, and three didn’t even hit the backboard. Saturday not only marked Iowa State’s annual Pink Zone day, but also marked one of the games women’s basketball fans likely circled on their calendars. To many, Baylor means Brittney Griner. Griner, the top-ranked recruit out of high school, and, most recently, the Big 12’s Player of the Week, can dunk the ball with ease and recorded triple-doubles in her last two games. But spectators that hadn’t heard of the 6-foot-8-inch Baylor center may have been left unaware of Griner’s talent. Her first two points of the game came from the free-throw line 11 minutes into the first half. Griner’s first real bucket of the night came only after ISU freshman Anna Prins stumbled and fell in the lane, giving Griner an easy layup on the right side. “Brittney Griner is the most unique player in the country, but I think if you were just a casual fan walking around the building today, the three Iowa State freshman post players did their part,” Fennelly said. Griner may be used to high amounts of pressure in the paint, but she wasn’t used to Iowa State’s defense. If the guards weren’t stepping in to help with the double team in the lane, the freshman post players were slowing her down one on one. “Us post players tried our best down in the low post; the guards’ double teaming

from PAGE 8 Off-ball screens and quick passing led to ideal ball sharing for the Cyclones as they recorded a remarkable 20 assists on their first 20 baskets of the game. “Our plan is always to share the ball,” Fennelly said. “So what we talked about was having a pass lead to a pass — when you get the ball, be ready to make one more pass because they’re scrambling around to rotate, and our kids did it.” The hot shooting soon became contagious, and before you could say “James H. Hilton Coliseum,” the wheels were already falling off for the Bears. “They put on an exhibition for 3-point shooting,” said Baylor coach Kim Mulkey. “Some of those shots were just spectacular. It didn’t matter where you were guarding them, the shots were going in.” The incredible display of outside shooting overshadowed the gritty defensive effort on the other end of the floor, where the Cyclones held the Bears 30 points below their season average and their lowest offensive output of the season. Iowa State has little time to celebrate the win, as a road date with undefeated No. 4 Nebraska (23–0, 10–0) looms on the horizon this week. Tip off at the Devaney Center in Lincoln is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Wednesday evening.

Griner against the Cyclones: 10 points 7 rebounds 4 blocks was amazing tonight,” said freshman post Amanda Zimmerman. “We held her to 10 points, and I think that was the biggest key of the game, just not [letting] her get on a roll.” The Cyclones held Griner to a season low in conference play of just 10 points, just short of the 12 she posted against then-No. 13 Oklahoma in just her second conference game of her career. “She was definitely the biggest focus on the game tonight,” Zimmerman said. “We just knew as post players we had to step up and take the challenge.” Griner also finished with seven rebounds and four blocks, a solid day for most, but below her averages in all categories. Any time Griner touched the ball, it seemed she had only a split second to decide what to do with it before two Cyclone jerseys swarmed her. Even when Griner got a shot, there were hardly any second chances, as Iowa State out rebounded the Bears 39-33, led by freshman post Chelsea Poppens’ 14, nine of which were defensive. Despite the fact that Griner and her teammates sported pink jerseys with green trim and Iowa State’s Cyclones sported white jerseys with pink trim, the two teams couldn’t have played in ways more diametrically opposed.

of bounds. Jackson said that Varner became frustrated after Haynes was simply trying to hang in the match and not wrestle Varner directly, which is something Varner has been experiencing all season. “We do have to control that frustration a little bit; we can’t let our emotions override the right things to do, and Jake understands that,” Jackson said. “I’ll never fault the guy for his emotional effort, but at the same time it can’t cost the team or cost himself penalty points.” David Zabriskie defeated defending heavyweight national champion Mark Ellis in his typical fashion. Zabriskie used a takedown with 10 seconds left in the second period and an escape at the beginning

with 3,500 people yelling and screaming for you, it gives you that extra boost you’re going to need, like a third wind.” Mitch Mueller got the crowd on its feet early in the 149 matchup with Missouri’s Scott O’Donnell. Mueller used a strong second period to go into the third with a 9–2 lead. It was all Mueller from that point on, as he grabbed a 20–7 major decision with O’Donnell’s only points coming on escapes. In the most highly anticipated match of the meet, the second-ranked Reader took on third-ranked Nicholas Marable at 165. Reader was close to a pin when Marable called for a medical timeout in the middle of the second period. A takedown at the 1:20 mark of the third period gave Marable the advantage, but Reader notched an escape 22 seconds later to tie the score at two. Reader’s 1:29 of riding time would give him a 3–2 win, his first ever over Marable. “Jon Reader beating Marable was a big win, I mean it was a hurdle,” said coach Kevin Jackson. “It just shows that he has

gotten better.” Maxwell Askren put Missouri’s first points on the board with a 9–1 major Zabriskie decision over Jerome Ward in the 184 weight class. Askren took a 5–0 lead in the second period with a takedown and threepoint near fall and would hold on with little action in the third. At 197, Jake Varner used high-scoring second and third periods to record a 14–5 major decision. Varner removed Haynes’ headgear and threw it to the ground in the first period and was called for unsportsmanlike conduct in the third when he shoved Haynes out

of the third to squeak out a 3–1 decision. “That’s always a tough match for Zabriskie,” Jackson said. “Zabriskie coming through like he has a tendency to do helped us win the match and kind of helped us run away with it pretty easy.” Redshirt freshman Andrew Long (125) was given the night off to rest his shoulder. Fellow redshirt freshman Trevor Dearden took his place and was defeated in a close 6–3 decision to Missouri’s Eric Wilson. The Cyclones will be back in action against Nebraska next Sunday at Hilton Coliseum. The meet is the last regular season dual for the Cyclones before the Big 12 Championships on March 6.

Koll breaks records at ISU Classic

By Kasey Sutherland Daily Staff Writer ISU senior Lisa Koll was able to participate in just one track meet during last year’s indoor season due to a season-ending foot injury, but what she accomplished in one meet this weekend at Lied Recreation Athletic Center put her into an elite group of runners. Koll became the second-fastest American Koll collegiate performer ever on any indoor track in the 5,000-meter run with Saturday’s performance at the ISU Classic. Koll, the previous record holder in the 5,000 meters, finished with a time of 15:29.65, setting a new track, school and personal record in the process. The only performance quicker than Koll’s was turned in by former University of Colorado runner Jenny Barringer last year with a time of 15:01.70. Caffrey Saturday’s performance in the 5,000 meters makes Koll an automatic qualifier for the event at the NCAA Indoor Championships on March 12–13 in Fayetteville, Ark. Koll is a native of Fort Dodge, just a short hour drive from Ames, where Barringer also lived as a child. Being an Iowa native in addition to her exceptional performances brings quite a following for Koll, who cherished the moment Saturday inside a packed Lied. “It feels amazing. It makes last year worth it,” Koll said. “There were so many times last year when I questioned if it was even worth competing. So, to finally have that breakthrough race and have it here in front of everyone, it means so much to me.” Koll’s nearest competitor was Kansas State’s Beverly Ramos, finishing with a time of 16:17.44. Iowa State’s Betsy Saina also competed in the event and earned a provisional qualifying berth for the indoor championships with a 16:40.49, good enough for eighth place. ISU coach Corey Ihmels was thrilled with Koll’s accomplishment. “For Lisa, this has been a long time coming,” Ihmels explained. “I wrote down on a sheet of paper 15:28, she ran 15:29, so I knew she could run fast. She wasn’t running and struggling to find herself six months ago and that just shows her determination and what kind of person she is.” Senior Jenna Caffrey was able to break her personal record in the 60-meter hurdles, set earlier this year at the ISU Open. Caffrey’s time of 8.36 propelled her to a second-place finish in the hurdles and put her in a better position for the NCAA Indoor Championships later this year. “I’m really excited,” Caffrey said. “I hit the provisional qualifier early, and this time shows I’m improving, and it didn’t matter if I finished last. I just wanted to lower my qualifying time.” After all the record books have been rewritten after the ISU Classic, the women’s track team has the next two weeks off in preparation for a huge upcoming obstacle, the Big 12 Indoor Championships at their home track. The Indoor Championships will draw thousands of people to Harry Hoak Track, as well as some of the greatest track and field athletes in the country. The event will take place February 26–27 inside Lied Recreation Athletic Center.

from PAGE 3 like to tackle. The first area of interest that each party would like to see changes in is Campustown. Roling said the Varsity Theater is a good step toward Campustown revitalization, and he is in full support of making it work. If students under the age of 21 are spending more time in Campustown, it could attract more businesses. Roling and his running mate, Nate Dobbels, an agriculture senator, then referred to a survey GSB sent out earlier in the year. The survey that said students would like to see a theater in Campustown also showed that students wanted to see a grocery store in Campustown. “We can set our goals, partner with the city and focus into students areas of interest,” Roling said. Roling and Dobbels have

many plans on improving their relationship with the city of Ames on their Web site, including making the GSB and City Liaison position a voting member of City Council. Roling and Dobbels wrapped up their thoughts about Campustown and said, “The Varsity Theater is a huge, small step toward Campustown revitalization.” Peterson and her running mate Jacob Wilson — an off-campus senator and vicespeaker of the senate — also have many ideas for the Campustown area. “Our opposing ticket have been talking about building relations with the city ... I feel like I have 10 people who could help me already,” Peterson said of Campustown. “It’s important that I have these relationships already built — we don’t have to move backwards. I’ve already been building relationships for the past two years.” Peterson then jumped into

Don’t Let Back or Neck Pain Get You Down

Ruth Phillips discusses raising a family of 12 and fostering more than 65 children. “This is my safe haven” she said of the living room. “No personal belongings ... and the kids know that whatever they leave in here will get thrown away.” Courtesy photo: Rashah McChesney

FAMILY “She was incredible. She had dropped out of school. She was selling drugs on the street. She was pretty much a slippery slide to failure,” Phillips said. “DHS did what DHS did and dropped her at the door and said, ‘Good luck.’” After being in Ruth’s home for six weeks, the teenage girl

went from high school dropout to honor roll student. The blossoming teen participated in student council and was looked at as a leader. Ruth said she was “hilarious, good humored, the whole bit and you just fell in love with her.” After nearly 10 months with Phillips, the new and improved 13-year-old had only seen her birth parents twice, which only confirmed they were still using

and dealing drugs. Yet the judge looked at her and said, “There are other kids that need foster care more than you; go home.” Within three months of reuniting with her biological family, the teen had dropped out of school and was roaming the streets again. “At that point, the rules were set up as we could not reconnect, so I couldn’t call her and tell her, ‘I’m here for you if you ever need me,’ because as a

foster parent, when they come to your house, they are yours — kind of ... when you let go of them, you were not to have contact with them anymore. It was like they were dead to you.” Phillips was heartbroken. “I was done. I was never going to do foster care again. I didn’t want to work with the system. I thought we had done everything right. We had this kid on the right path, and they sent her away.”

a few goals she has already accomplished in revitalizing Campustown, and a few plans she has already set. The Campustown Action Association — for which Peterson wrote the bylaws — was able to get funding from the City Council last week for banners that are going to be displayed in Campustown. Peterson has also been planning a mural that will be painted on the side of T Galaxy, 206 Welch Ave. Peterson has been working with Ames City Art on the project that will be designed by students and painted by volunteers. She mentioned making a map of Campustown and giving tours to Freshman Council. “There are a lot of great places to eat and shop, places that I didn’t even know about until someone drug me around and showed them to me,” Peterson said. Peterson would also like to launch a Keep Campustown Clean organization. The organization would potentially put flyers up in busi-

nesses and on the side of trash cans encouraging students to maintain Campustown’s image. In addition, they would attempt to get more trash cans in Campustown. Peterson suggested putting in solar trash compactors similar to the ones near Curtiss Hall. “We could order them and let the Society of Sustainable Engineers put them together, which would be a great project for them,” Peterson said. “Then we could make them flashy and stand out so that students would actually use them.” Peterson would like to see a place students could drop-off and pickup furniture on movein move-out days. Financial debt is another issue that both campaigns were prepared to talk about. Roling was one of the students who helped developed the peer-to-peer financial education program and was prepared to “keep it rolling.” “It’s important to be working on money issues in general, reaching out to constituency councils on credit card debt and individual finances,” Roling

said. Roling would like to see more lobbying efforts yearround. The Roling-Dobbels Web site also lists some goals. “The ISU Ambassadors organization is an excellent resource we have to accomplish these goals. However, our biggest lobbying day [Regents’ Day at the Capitol] comes after the point legislation is due,” read the Web site. “Nate and I are committed to making our lobbying efforts heard by legislators by taking full advantage of the Regents’ Day as well as providing a stronger year-round push for funding.” Roling would like to see more direct work with the ambassadors, and said he would “drive home the importance of higher education on the state level.” He would like to see a unified effort between universities. “This year it seems like the University of Iowa was doing its own thing, which is not OK. We need to reach a common goal,” Roling said. Roling said the legislature is not as much under his control as are personal finance issues. Peterson would use the peer-to-peer financial education seminars to their full potential and reach out to as many students as possible. “Our goal is to have tuition not increase more than the higher education price index,” Peterson said. “This year it was between 1.8 and 3.5 percent, and it went up 6 [percent]. I don’t think people understand how many students aren’t able to continue on because of financial reasons, which is disheartening.” She then wanted to make clear that the Student’s Day at the Capitol is not a joke. “It’s not as effective as it could be, but the more students we get to go with

us the more students will be heard,” Peterson said. Peterson also said it is not true that the Student’s Day at the Capitol comes after the time where bills can be submitted. “[GSB] President [Jonathan] Turk offered to draft the amendment to get the $100 surcharge back to students while we were there this year,” Peterson said. Wilson did not support the $100 surcharge from the beginning. “Tuition is supposed to be a contract between the university and students. Adding that surcharge broke that contract and student’s trust,” Wilson said. Peterson said that last year, the ISU Ambassadors were going to the Capitol all year round; this year had just been awkward with budget cuts and deciding what to lobby for. The director of Ambassadors also left mid-year and had to be replaced. Both campaigns have plans to make Iowa State a more sustainable university. Roling and Dobbels would like to see Iowa State get a higher grade on the College of Sustainability’s report card next year after only receiving a low B this year. They plan on doing so by keeping the Green Umbrella Organization going and enrolling the school in Recyclemania next year. Roling said, “We need to make sure we are maximizing efficiency by making sure every sustainability group is working together and helping them maintain lines of communication.”

the six-month liquor license period, the Ames Police Department will be checking in with management and ownership periodically and address any issues that may arise. Davis said the police will “try to correct things as they go along.” “I think that’s going to be a very positive step, with the police department working closely with the bar to ensure that they get things brought back into compliance,” Davis said. Mayor Ann Campbell said the City Council generally passes most liquor license request from businesses. However, she noted Cy’s Roost has been “a challenge” and the amount of occurrences of alcohol related violations were atypical. Ames Police Cmdr. Mike Brennan said there are two officers assigned to monitor bars in Ames on a nightly basis. The officers have an obligation to walk through the bars to check for minors as well as to interact with the management and make sure everything is operating the way it is supposed to. “Do some bars do better than others? Absolutely,” Brennan said. “Some run very good bars, and there are some in town that for whatever reason let things go.” Brennan said the bars not operating up to par might not have staff that are properly trained to check for IDs. “When our officers go into a bar and they continually find underage individuals in one bar as opposed to another, there’s got to be a reason.” Brennan said. During the six-month probationary license period, Lt. Jeff Brinkley, who supervises the night shift, said if Cy’s Roost fails to uphold standards, there would “possibly” be more severe repercussions for the establishment. If there continues to be a pattern of noncompliance, the police department will return to the City Council with a report and then could potentially deny the establishment its liquor license renewal application. Because Cy’s Roost was continuously requiring police visits, the council discussed potentially imposing a fine on establishments that required repeated police involvement. “The issue is,” said Peter Orazem, City Council member, “if you have a firm that appears to be, in essence, over-taxing the police in order to keep their operations safe, should we start charging them?” However, Brinkley mentioned that entire liquor licensing is a state-regulated process and they are unable to create an ordinance that would fine establishments for repeated police visits.

Ames groups being included alongside national acts for this year’s events and to see local music getting more support. “Veishea is about Iowa State and showcasing our many talents. How could we claim to be Veishea without including local flavor and supporting our own?” said Entertainment Co-Chairwoman Meagan Hennessy, senior in animal ecology and entomology. “Iowa State has always been really supportive of The Envy Corps, and we like to get up there and play as often as we can,” Darner added. The group appeared on campus headlining the 2009 Homecoming Battle of the Bands and will have a double-header night of shows at the M-Shop on Feb. 26. Brugman said after booking the more expensive headlining bands, the search for opening bands meant finding groups that are less expensive. “We figured if we were going to look for bands that don’t charge as much, we might as well go local and include acts that would bring in more of the community,” Brugman said. Leslie and the LYs is lead by Ames native Leslie Hall, self-proclaimed “Gem Sweaterologist,” an internet superstar who has been seen on VH1’s “Best Week Ever” and will be coming off her second national tour. ISU alumnae Ramona Muse and Laura deWaal make up the LYs. Down With Webster were recently signed to Universal Motown Records. Their music has climbed the Cana-

MCS is also on the new “Almost Alice” compilation being released to coincide with Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland” feature film. The Envy Corps made it to a major label record deal and a tour with The Killers before going back on its own after having too much difficulty with the label. Since then the band has selfreleased an EP, “Kid Gloves,” and has been recording a new full-length tentatively titled “Palawan Scops/I Hate My Host Family.” “I used to go up to Veishea all the time as a teenager to see bands, and I never really thought about playing it,” said The Envy Corps’ bassist Brandon Darner. “It always seemed like a pretty big deal to play Veishea.” Darner said he’s excited to see

I knew something was going on,” Hennessy said. “He sat me down and played DWW over and over again.” Hellogoodbye had hits off its 2006 album “Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs! Oh My!” that peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Top 100. The band has finished a new fulllength album, but is still figuring out the release details. Emerson Drive, a Grammy Award-nominated Canadian country music band, won Music Video of the Year for its song “Moments” by the Country Music Association. Ten-thousand tickets, valid for concert admission on both nights, will be available for sale to ISU students, faculty, staff and alumni beginning March 29. Tickets will be sold at the MShop Box Office from 11 a.m.– 5 p.m., Monday–Friday from March 29–April 9. Anyone with a valid ISU ID will be able to purchase up to two tickets at $5 each. From April 12–17 anyone with a valid ISU ID will have the opportunity to purchase up to an additional five tickets for $8 each. ISU alumni will be able to purchase tickets by contacting the ISU Alumni Association. Veishea organizers will announce details for alumni ticket sales soon.

PROCESS from PAGE 1

of the 2010 Entertainment Committee in October. The committee creates a list of possible bands, based on student feedback and advice from the committee’s adviser Steve Satterlee, the entertainment programs coordinator at the Memorial Union. Satterlee also works with the Maintenance Shop and the Student Union Board and uses his connections with agencies to coordinate performances in the venues and at various activities. “We started off with an extensive list of desired bands and narrow it down through agents based on availability and general pricing and fit for the event,” Satterlee said in an e-mail. “We work with a multitude of agencies throughout the year for Veishea and other concerts, like [at] the M-Shop and even the 10,000 Hours Show. We start with trying to get headliners and then weed it out from there.” The budget for booking all of the bands comes from $80,000 of the Entertainment Committee’s budget, which also goes toward funding Battle of the Bands. Finding bands that will be near the Ames area when the performances are scheduled to take place April 16 and 17 is another major challenge. “Routing of artists is the key with all of that, and artists are cheaper if you can get them routed through the area versus them playing a solo date that they specifically come out of hiatus for,” Satterlee said. “That can be the difference between $15,000 and $30,000. And colleges often are subjected to different pricing, since

we are not open to the public and aren’t charging the same [rates] that a club does.” In addition, having a single weekend available rules out a lot of artists. “It’s difficult for Veishea,” said BJ Brugman, Veishea Entertainment cochairman. “Some place like Hilton Coliseum will give a band a time period of four weeks and ask when they can come perform in those four weeks, and for Veishea we just have one day. That in itself rules a lot of bands out, because they have other festivals and things to go to.” The late-night lineup also poses challenges. “It’s also really hard to get people to play after midnight, especially when we want them to start at like 1:30,” said Meagan Hennessy, Veishea Entertainment co-chairwoman. In spite of these challenges, both Hennessy and Brugman are pleased for the lineup their committee’s efforts have produced and hope their lineup will draw students to the concerts. “I’m personally very excited for this lineup,” Brugman said. “It’s a tough year for Veishea as far as budget goes, and we’re really thrilled with such a big lineup for Veishea.” With the lineup set, the Veishea Entertainment Committee will continue working to coordinate the various events they’re in charge of planning, including Battle of the Bands, Veishea Says I’m Funny and Cyclone Idol. The committee strives to make the concert a little different every year and hopes the concerts will continue to improve and reach new students each year.

Daily Sudoku

Daily Horoscope : by Nancy Black and Stephanie Clements

Sagittarius: Dress for flexibility. Today’s Birthday: With exceptional effort on your part, this year promises unusual achievements. You make gains while others are stalled or slipping back. Independent thought is your basic tool. You refuse to follow along just because someone else is enthusiastic, and you check the bottom line projections yourself.

INSTRUCTIONS: Complete the grid so each row, column and 3-by-3 box (in bold borders) contains every number 1 to 9. For strategies on solving Sudoku, visit www.sudoku.org.uk.

Friday’s solution:

Cancer (June 22-July 22) -- Today is an 8 -- Optimism begins and ends the day. Take advantage of this commodity. Spread it around. The more you share, the more you get to enjoy it yourself.

To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Today is an 8 -- Whatever you failed to complete yesterday, you get another chance now when an associate opens the conversation. Business almost takes care of itself.

Aries (March 21-April 19) -- Today is an 8 -- If you allow your mind to wander a bit, you’ll discover creative ideas at every turn. Turning them into productive results seems almost too easy. Enjoy it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today is an 8 -- View each task on your list as an opportunity to learn. A lighter touch may get the job done without breaking essential parts. Tidy up after yourself.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) -- Today is a 7 -- A dream image may stick with you as you begin your day. Expand it and apply its mojo to all your activities.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Get busy on a household project that promises to restore emotional balance for at least one person. Tighten a screw here and seal a lid there.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) -- Today is an 8 -- Track developments in your career field. A new contact provides optimism. Use your skills to conclude a transaction that satisfies everyone.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Today is an 8 -- Contact a female who’s closely in touch with a customer’s needs. Make sure the solution

reflects well on the person who pays the bills. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -Today is an 8 -- Things are about to get complicated. Use your creative powers to simplify wherever possible. Dress for flexibility. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Today is an 8 -- To get the most done today, first align with your partner, then divvy up the work. A female helps with your part so that you can support others. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Today is an 8 -- A lot of folks have their fingers in the pie today. Although you don’t want to deplete resources, you’ll probably run through some cash now. Spend wisely. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Today is a 7 -- If you charge ahead with your own creative ideas, you may leave others in the dust. Soothe their ruffled feathers. This push gets the work done.
