Eating Disorder Awareness Week 2010

Tragedy brings awareness Alumna falls victim to anorexia; family hopes to help students with similar struggles, illnesses By Jody Korthaus Daily Staff Writer She described herself as a salesperson, a computer program and database manager. Others described her as beautiful, talented, smart, having everything going for her. Her parents described her as athletic, humorous, organized and dependable. But on the inside, Emily Fischer was sensitive, a perfectionist, whose feelings were hurt easily, who put a lot of pressure on herself. Emily was perfect to the outside world. She gave the impression that everything was always fine. But the tendency to hold things in and the inner battle to overcome her fear of failure that drove Emily Fischer to a life no one ever imagined she would live. Marcia and Arnie Fischer grew up in Ankeny, raising Emily and her older brothers. Emily graduated from Ankeny High School with many accomplishments and was involved in sports. “She was a bright little girl,” recalled Marcia Fischer, Emily’s mother, as she showed photos of Emily, trying to give me some sense of who she was Her mother said she had “that perfectionist personality” and a sensitive spirit allowed her feelings to be hurt easily. Arnie recalled when Emily was in high school and her team made it to the state basketball tournaments. “Her dad was always semi-coaching her from the stands,” Arnie said, referring to himself in third person as he grinned. “She hated for me to do that. It really bothered her and drove her crazy.” He said instances that would be minor to most would bother her a lot. Shoes in a row and car always clean, Emily was very organized. “If you wanted something done, you went to Emily and she would have it done before you could turn around,”

Marcia said. Emily decided to attend Iowa State’s College of Business. Her father, Arnie, is an ISU alumnus, and her brother also attended Iowa State, where he belonged to a fraternity. With her brother’s encouragement, Emily joined a sorority and found Kappa Kappa Gamma. It wasn’t until Emily’s sophomore year that Marcia Fischer got a phone call from Emily stating she believed she had an eating disorder, and that she was going to attend a program of Story County Hospitals in Nevada that treated addictions and eating disorders. “A sorority sister who also had an eating disorder encouraged Emily to go

to the program,” Marcia said. Unlike today, there was no Web site with information about eating disorders to help them understand exactly what their daughter was going through, or how to handle the situation. “I didn’t know much about it, so I started learning right along with her,” Marcia said. “I went to treatment with her at Story County, and I tried to read books and what people had written about eating disorders.” After about two and a half months of therapy, Emily completed the 12 step program and seemed healthy again. “After she went through that first program and felt pretty good, we didn’t

really think about it too much. She really said she spent a good five to six years feeling healthy, so we thought it went away to a certain degree.” Arnie and Marcia weren’t always around Emily those next couple years of college. Her senior year, she roomed with a friend, Kimberly Westerfield. Kimberly and Emily became friends through classes together. The two shared running, Christianity and their goal-oriented attitudes. Kimberly described Emily as beautiful and athletic, and said Emily appeared healthy and normal. Kimberly knew Emily had struggled with an eating disorder prior to their senior year, but she never re-

called noticing Emily practicing bad eating behaviors, and said she and Emily never talked about eating disorders. “I guess you always wonder in the back of your mind,” Kimberly recalled. “I can picture her with an apple and eating healthy a lot, but she didn’t pig out and she was always a runner.” After graduating in 1992, Emily got a job, and she traveled so much that her parents didn’t see her regularly. “I don’t think it never completely left her. I know she was still playing around with it,” Marcia said. Kimberly and Emily kept in contact. Emily even moved to Kansas City to work for the YMCA of Greater Kansas City, where Kimberly also moved. While in Kansas City, Kimberly got engaged. Then she and Emily went their separate ways. “Because she traveled around so much, it was hard to keep track of where she was and how she was doing,” Kimberly said. After working for the YMCA of Greater Kansas City, Emily returned to Des Moines to work for a Christian book store. “She became a Christian her sophomore year of college when she went through that first treatment program in Story County,” Marcia said proudly, sitting straight and nodding approval. The program that was supposed to answer the Fischer family’s prayers, and a phase that was supposed to pass in Emily’s life. The job in West Des Moines led her to the job that would, in the end, have bad consequences for Emily’s health. She became a sales representative for Bob Siemon Designs, selling retail merchandise to Christian book stores, and Emily’s job entitled her to cover vast territory, from Atlanta to South

Going Green

Black Student Alliance

‘Engage the population’

Group focuses on leadership, empowerment

By Angela Christianson Daily Staff Writer “It’s an honor to be here; it’s good for the soul. I see how well you work together,” said Leith Sharp to an audience Wednesday in the Great Hall. Sharp is a pioneer in the field of green campuses. She worked at Harvard for 10 years, and is currently studying community college sustainability in Illinois. Higher education is one the most significant sectors in sustainability — with more than 4,000 schools, 15 million students and $300 billion spent every year, post-secondary schools are in a position to make a big impact. Sharper explained that, while working at Harvard, not only did she see the institution change, but the city of Boston followed suit. After Harvard began building green structure, architects in the area all began going green as well. Sharp used the analogy of being “rudders on rudders to move the ship of sustainability,” to express the importance of small steps. By changing the light bulbs in residence halls at Harvard, $20,000 was saved in one year. Sharp explained that the task was not easy, as she showed a chart displaying “how many people it takes to change a light bulb at Harvard.” She said it was well worth it in the end. “It took me 17 years to figure out that the assumption that people are adverse to change is not true,” Sharp said. “People actually thrive on it. What they are afraid of is risk and instability. When we think of social change, we think of these great heroes like Martin Luther King Jr. — but, really, social change is the sum of regular people doing little things. You don’t know what you might trigger and make possible down the line.” None of the changes Sharp helped to

happen started as big things. When they started using biodiesel fuel in buses, they only used it in one bus for two months. Peer to Peer programs were very successful at Harvard, Sharp said. Students were paid to be green ambassadors. They encouraged green behavior with their peers and ended up helping decrease food waste by one-third and reducing natural gas use by 26 percent. There was also a competition in the kitchen for the food service employees to see who could do their job in the greenest way. The winner was awarded a green [colored] frying pan. Sharp also supports a Green Office Rating Program, in which offices are rated with 1–4 green leaves based on how sustainable they are.

“We have to change our behaviors,” Sharp said. “Information is not enough. Only 5 percent of what we do in a day is consciously decided — the rest is habit. We need to turn sustainability into a habit.” To do this, Sharp gave a few pointers. She said you must make a commitment and make a pledge to be green. At Harvard, posters were distributed that portrayed faculty and students doing quirky green things, such as riding tandem bikes and engaging in green shower habits. Convenience is also important, she said. Sharp helped institute single stream recycling, with just one bin. Finally, she said persuasive communication is crucial to change. “I can’t emphasize how important it is to engage the population,” Sharp said.

This Wednesday, 25 Black Student Alliance members piled onto a charter bus and endured a 17-hour trip to Austin, Texas, to attend the 33rd annual Big 12 Conference on Black Student Government. This year’s conference is held at the University of Texas at Austin with about 622 participants. “My first thoughts when I came through the door were just ‘wow,’ because I’ve been to Big 12 before, but this is the first year it’s in Texas and I just know it’s going to be great,” said Bryan Woodson, president of the Black Student Alliance. “It was a long and tiring trip, but I know it’s going to be worth it.” After checking into hotel rooms in the AT&T Conference Center, members participated in a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership March and a Barbara Jordan Leadership Processional March. Holding batteryoperated candles, Iowa State’s alliance members marched across campus to stand before the statues of Martin Luther King Jr. and Barbara Jordan, alongside black student government members from the University of Missouri, the Uni-

from PAGE 1 Carolina. Emily’s parents rarely saw her. Without consistency of a daily routine, Emily was unable to create a close knit of friends, a support system she had back home. She began to fear that her eating disorder was back. When she relocated for her job, she would always try to attend sessions, but that didn’t seem to work well, her mother explained, as Emily’s attitude was ‘if I can’t be there every Tuesday, then I probably better just not go.’ Emily felt she knew more about her eating disorder than her therapists and felt they didn’t truly understand her. “I believe she was probably a little bit right,” Marcia said. “Sometimes the best therapists are those that have had some problems themselves, come out of it, and then gone on to help others, but I think what she was really saying was ‘they can’t help me, I don’t want them to help me.’” Since Emily loved her job and was good at it, she kept going, applying her perfectionism. “She was a very creative person within her major in the field of marketing; she really had some skills,” her father said. The Bob Siemon job then led Emily to work with Provident Music, a recording studio for Christian artists in Franklin, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville. Emily seemed to enjoy it. “She would call and say ‘Mom, I met Michael W. Smith this morning!’” her mom remembers, smiling as she hears her daughter’s voice in her head. Marcia and Arnie tried many times to visit Emily, to see how their daughter was holding up. But as the disorder took a tighter grip on Emily, she tried to hide her appearance from them. “We had tried to go see her, but eating disorders are very isolatory, and there is a lot of shame with it,” Marcia said. “As she started dropping weight, she didn’t want us to see her.” Emily’s employment with the record company ended due to downsizing. Shortly after, Emily called her parents. Her disorder had fully consumed her; she knew she needed help. The Fischers found a resi-

dential treatment facility in Wickenburg, Ariz., called Remuda Ranch, but Emily was too weak and medically unstable to travel. They requested that Emily get the necessary lab tests and blood work done to make sure she was able to travel because of how critical she described her health to be. With no permanent doctor, Emily entered a walk-in clinic in Tennessee. The Christian medical clinic performed the tests and blood work. Seeing her condition, two nurses kneeled and prayed by Emily’s side. The results showed that Emily’s hemoglobin and potassium levels were critically low, and she could not travel until these levels were stable. Emily underwent a blood transfusion. Once her body drank in the nutrients her body needed badly, she left for Remuda Ranch. A nurse from the clinic in Tennessee went “above and beyond” in transferring Emily from Tennessee to Arizona. “I don’t know if Emily would have made it to Remuda sometimes without Joni,” Arnie said. A nurse whom the Fischers believed to be an angel gave Emily the support she needed. Joni drove Emily to the airport, helped her with her bags and sent Emily on the plane to Arizona. She even took care of Emily’s matters left in Nashville, such as her apartment and mail. After Emily arrived for treatment, the nurse kept in contact with Emily, sending her love and prayers. “Joni felt that God had told her to help Emily,” Marcia said. When Emily arrived at the Phoenix airport, someone from Remuda Ranch was waiting to drive her to Wickenburg. Remuda Ranch specifically treats women with eating disorders and is big enough to accommodate many women. It has a variety of therapy treatments such as equestrian, art, nutrition and therapy sessions. The Christian-based residence also emphasizes spirituality. “It was exactly the place that Emily was looking for,” Arnie said. “She didn’t want to be mixed in with people who had other addictions such as alcoholism and drug abuse — she didn’t feel the treatment was the same.” Keeping in close contact with Emily through notes, e-

mail and phone calls, the Fischers had an opportunity to see their daughter when Remuda Ranch held its annual Parents Week after Emily had been there for one month. Arnie, Marcia, and Emily’s brother took a week off to see her. “It was a nice blend, I thought, of the mental treatment as well as the weight restoration treatment,” Arnie said. “That’s a difficult thing to do. You have to have a certain amount of body mass to have proper brain cognition to compute and understand as well. I think that’s why their initial focus was weight gain, so that they could get to the psychological part of the illness.” At Remuda the patients work closely with dieticians, who monitor what each person needs to restore body weight. The dietician meets with the women to accurately determine the number of calories and specific needs of each individual to plan the menus. In addition to three meal times, patients were also provided daily snacks.

“In talking with the other parents at Remuda, we all seemed to have similar thoughts,” Arnie said. “We would say that they just don’t seem to want to get better; their actions don’t show that they want to get better. That for some reason, they keep going back to their bad behaviors.” Since 1990, Remuda Ranch has treated more than 10,000 individuals with eating disorders and is said to be the nation’s leading eating disorder treatment center, holding a 95 percent success rate. Emily did seem to regain the weight she was hoping to, and after two and a half months of treatment, she voluntarily returned home. Arnie moved Emily’s belongings from Nashville to Ankeny, where Emily would now live

and, hopefully, find some comfort being around her hometown and the support of her family close by. But Emily soon lost the weight she had worked so hard to regain. The disorder had dug its way back into Emily’s life. “When she was really sick and living with us, it definitely caused a lot of tension at home and fractured a lot of the relationships within our family,” Marcia said. “It’s not easy living with someone with an addiction.” Emily needed control over everything when she lived at home: what she ate, her space and her environment. “It was a control issue,” her father said. “She needed some control in her life, and so it was the one thing she could do to have some control in this chaotic world.” Emily’s parents watched as their daughter spun out of control, only eating certain foods and never enough. By that time, it didn’t do any good to tell Emily to eat more. “It’s like telling a brick wall to move — if you don’t want to do it, you’re not going to do it,” Marcia declared. Frustrated that the eating disorder was still in control of their daughter, the Fischers started searching for another facility. “We just kept looking, searching for a facility that would eventually turn that key, flip that switch, and that would say, ‘OK, now it’s OK for you to eat these foods, now it’s OK for you to restore your

health,’” Arnie said. The Fischers turned to the only inpatient facility in Iowa, the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City, hoping they would find the missing key that would unlock Emily from this world of darkness and allow her freedom from the struggle within her. “It’s like some negative tapes going on in your head saying ‘don’t eat, you will be able to control your environment if you don’t eat, you will be worth more if you don’t eat,’ and that’s the voice she was listening to instead of the tape we want to play in our heads that we are worthwhile and that we are valuable,” Marcia exclaimed. Struggling with these inner voices playing over and over, Emily spent the next four months in the University of Iowa Hospitals Eating Disorder Program. But this time, Emily was not among only women, nor among only those suffering from eating disorders. The facility accepts men and women and all addictions alike. It was back to a strict routine, structured meals, therapy and the strain of security — no one going out or coming in. “It’s not a fun way to spend your life,” Arnie said. “In these facilities, you can’t get out, people can’t get it, and they check everything that passes through.” Arnie said they even restrict parents from coming in and out of the facility to see patients and that they weren’t even allowed to take Emily out until she was

Opinion Technology is our friend; take note, professors Growing up in the 1990s, we heard a lot about the promise of technology. When our elementary school classrooms were retrofitted with Macintosh LC II computers, school districts bragged that they were on the cutting edge of technological advancement. Back then, that meant Math Blaster, Reading Rabbit and Number Maze. Technology in the classroom can facilitate learning for college students too. It can be as simple as typing notes instead of writing them out, or as complex as using social networking and instant messaging technology to interact with other students. What’s clear is that technology has the power to change the way we learn. Unfortunately, many professors aren’t hopping on board the tech-train. We’ve really seen the issue come to a head in the past few semesters. It used to be that only a few students had laptops or smart phones, so policies on their use were non-existent. But now that iPhones, MacBooks and WiFicapable iPods abound, professors are being forced to address their use in class. It’s been polarizing, and professors seem to be split into two camps. We’ve all had both kinds: In one corner are the professors who’ve banned cell phones and laptops from their classrooms altogether. Penalties range from light to insane — 10 percent off a student’s final grade for each infraction, or confiscation of the laptop or cell phone until the next class period. We understand professors’ concerns; really, we do. Technology can be distracting for both the student using it and for his or her neighbors. The impression of seeing a student fiddling with a smart phone or laptop must be that he or she isn’t paying attention. But we’d like to tell these professors why they should reconsider. First, we pay you to teach us, not to babysit us. We’d go on, but that would digress into an entirely separate editorial. Second, the minds of our generation work differently from the minds of yours. Conditioned by Mario and YouTube, we’re used to doing more than one thing at once. Multitasking is an art, and we are Picasso. Third, prohibition, for the most part, doesn’t work. We don’t stop using technology; we just get sneakier about it. And, fourth — probably the most important reason of all — you’re missing opportunities to engage your students if you don’t consider technology as a method for communication and collaboration. Take Google Wave, a web application that was built from the ground up for collaboration and interaction. What if, instead of hand-written, easy-to-lose, messy paper notes, students were allowed to work in the cloud, taking notes together, making suggestions to each other and chatting in real time about examples from class? For some, it’s not hypothetical. Take Jacob Groshek’s Jl MC 342 class. Sick of policing his classroom, Professor Groshek decided that if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. He began allowing the use of smart phones and laptops, and even created a Twitter hashtag for his class. The students took it from there. Groshek said he hasn’t noticed a decrease in learning outcomes or grades, and students with laptops and cell phones are, for the most part, aware of what’s being discussed and able to answer if called upon. So students tweet and wave away. They learn, they collaborate and they’re happier for it, to boot, since they don’t feel like the classroom is a prison. Our advice: Be a professor, not a cop. Students will get along just fine. And we might even learn in ways you’d never expect. Editor in Chief

It is important to give a hand to those who struggle with disorders


hat do Kate Beckinsale, Princess Diana, Audrey Hepburn, Victoria Beckham and Kate Winslet all have in common? You might say they have all achieved fame and recognition for one reason or another, be it their beauty, their talent or maybe a combination of both. Theirs are the faces we recognize and immediately associate with what it really means to be beautiful. They seem flawless. As if pimples, bad hair days and ill-fitting clothes are, or were, completely alien notions to them. And yet regardless of their success, beauty and talent, there is one more prominent characteristic linking these women to one another. At one point or another in their lives, each one of them suffered from an eating disorder. It’s pretty amazing to think that some of the people we consider to be the most glamorous in the world have suffered from a disorder that is not glamorous in the least. An eating disorder can have any number of effects on an individual’s body. A drop in blood pressure, pulse and breathing rate. Hair loss and fingernail breakage. Anemia, swollen joints and brittle bones. Damage to the stomach and kidneys. Tooth decay. The thought of any one of these ailments affecting a person makes me cringe. Yet many of us can bring to mind at least one person we know personally who has suffered from an eating disorder, be it anorexia nervosa, bulimia or a related disorder and may have had to recover from any one of these effects. Or maybe we even know of someone who wasn’t lucky enough to recover. With Eating Disorder Awareness Week coming to a close, we’ve all been challenged to delve a little deeper into what exactly constitutes an eating disorder, how prevalent an issue it is among young people, and how serious such diseases really can be. However, I think one has to go beyond simply understanding eating disorders in our society in order for any real change to occur. An eating disorder is considered a psychological health issue, so none of us could ever really know what someone with an eating disorder is going through unless we’ve lived it ourselves. Nevertheless, I think we could greatly reduce the pervasiveness of eating disorders on our college campus alone by starting to feel better about ourselves and by making an effort to start thinking better of one another. I know firsthand that it’s easy to get caught up in conversation with a group of friends that you oftentimes don’t even realize that another person has become the center of your conversation, and not always in a good way. Do we

ever really stop to think of the consequences of what comes out of our mouths? Perhaps we’ve been groomed to behave this way with so many reality television shows today that make money at other people’s expense. It’s easy to make fun of people, and we all do it. But what happens when you jokingly call one person chubby, and that person takes what you said to heart? Healthy human beings starve themselves to death every day because they don’t feel that they measure up to a standard that society feels they should. What if we all started to embrace our imperfections a little more, and embrace others’ imperfections as well? When I really ask myself this question, I realize it’s easier said than done. I don’t wake up feeling beautiful every morning, and I am not always the most confident individual. And yet when I really think about what I love about so many people in my life, I find that it is their confidence. I don’t mean the kind of confidence that people with huge egos hold about

themselves. I mean the kind of confidence that exudes from the type of people who love themselves for who they are, love others for who they are, and encourage smiling and laughter on a regular basis. After all, we’re all people and we can relate to one another in some way, shape or form. In honor of Eating Disorder Awareness Week and all those who have ever had to suffer with such severe feelings of hopelessness, I challenge us all to try to treat our families, friends and the kid standing next to you in line with the respect we all deserve. We’re all the same on the inside, and not one of us should ever feel like we’re less than what we are.

Stand up, don’t be a bystander Common effect allows increased sexual violence


he following scenario is something many college students see every weekend: A group of people party at their mutual friends’ house. Everyone is drinking, socializing and having a good time. In the corner, people notice a couple flirting. Person A gives Person B a drink. No one thinks much of it. Then, people notice Person A giving Person B another drink ... and another ... and another ... With each drink, Person B gets a little drunker, a little clumsier and a little more handsy. Eventually, Person B can barely stand on his or her own, and Person A whisks him or her away to a bedroom with a triumphant smirk. Person B in the above scenario is drunk, too drunk to give consent for what will most likely be happening in the bedroom to which he or she is whisked away. Person A is well aware of this, in fact this was Person A’s goal all along. The other party-goers can clearly see this, but not one of them does anything to intervene. This is known as the Bystander Effect. For those who have not heard of it, the Bystander Effect is the social phenomenon in which a group of people witnesses a crime or emergency, but no one intervenes or deters the situation. Unfortunately, the Bystander Effect plays a large role in sexual assaults. Sexual assault is any sexual act that happens against someone’s will, without someone’s consent, or when someone is unable to freely give consent — if they are drunk, high, coerced, asleep, passed out, threatened, etc. One recent case of the Bystander Effect relating to sexual

The difference between consensual sex and alcohol-related sexual assault is not always black and white. Those nearby should pay close attention to what is happening. Courtesy photo: Thinkstock

assault took place in California. On Oct. 27, 2009, during Richmond High’s Homecoming dance, more than 20 people watched or participated in a gang rape of a 15-year-old girl for more than two hours. It began with a smaller group of men, but as word traveled at the dance, more came to watch, and no one reported it. It was not until after the assault, when someone leaving the dance noticed this young girl lying under a bench, that the crime was reported. While this case is extreme, it makes a valid point. Any of those witnesses could have left and privately called the police. No one would have had to know who called, and the crime could have

been stopped — but it wasn’t. In the recent past, most rape prevention education has focused on how potential victims can protect themselves. While these methods are important and helpful, they are not the only component. The people who could witness events leading up to the potential rape are the ones who have the most power to stop it, simply because they are the largest in numbers. Virginia

Tech, with information from William and Mary Sexual Assault Services, has created a “Bystander Intervention Playbook.” I would like to share with you some of the playbook’s methods of how a potentially dangerous situation can be diffused: 1) Step in and separate the two people. Let them know that you are only doing this out of concern for each of them. Most importantly, be their friend and let them know you are acting in their best interest. Make sure each person gets home safely. 2) Use a distraction to pull their attention away from each other. Say you need to talk to one of them or suggest going somewhere else. 3) Evaluate the situation and decide the best course of action. Depending on the situation, it may be best to intervene yourself or it may be best to have your friends help you. If the person reacts badly, try another approach. 4) Recruit the help of friends of both people to step in as a group. 5) Divert the attention of one person from the other person. Assign someone to stand nearby and commit a party foul, such as spilling their drink on one of them, if needed. The weekend is fast-approaching. Hopefully, with this new information, you will feel safer and more confident in your abilities to help prevent sexual assault.

By Dan Tracy Daily Staff Writer Three track and field coaches in the Big 12 Conference — Iowa State’s Corey Ihmels, Nebraska’s Gary Pepin and Texas’ Bubba Thornton — each have their own mindset when it comes to the 2010 Big 12 Indoor Championships. “I think it’s going to be a dogfight,” Ihmels said. “I think we are better than we are on paper and I think we are going to beat some teams that we probably shouldn’t beat.” “You can make an analogy a little bit like a big battle: You are always trying to look at the rest of the teams and look where their strengths and weaknesses might be,” Pepin said. “We are going to bring more than one or two athletes this weekend, and whether it’s Iowa State or Texas or Colorado or [Texas] A&M, we are coming to play,” Thornton said. The 12 teams that make up of one of the nation’s top track and field conferences will converge in Ames for a two-day team competition beginning Friday at the Lied Recreation Athletic Center. This will be the fourth time since 1998 that Iowa State has hosted the Big 12 Indoor Championships. The competition on both men’s and women’s sides will contain some of the best teams and athletes in the country. On the men’s side, 10 of the 12 conference teams are ranked in the top 50 nationally, as are eight of the 12 on the women’s side. Although rankings are based on a team’s results at the nation-

WEST VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Jeret “Speedy” Peterson always insisted the moment was as important as the medal. This time, he gets both. Peterson took his high-risk, high-reward career and life to a satisfying new level Thursday night, throwing his one-of-akind “Hurricane” jump at the Olympics and walking away with the silver medal. He took a chance nobody else in this dangerous sport will take — wrapping five twists into three somersaults as he vaults off the ramp and 50 feet in the air. He stuck his landing and was rewarded. Peterson’s score — 128.62 — was the highest awarded for any of the 24 jumps on a clear, cold night at Cypress Mountain, but his total — 247.21 — was 1.2 short of Belarussian Alexei Grishin, who was judged to be a bit more technically precise, if not quite as daring. —The Associated Press

coach Ihmels have never finished higher than ninth place in the Big 12 conference. However, that might change this year, as the Cyclone women are currently ranked fourth of all Big 12 teams nationally. Ihmels believes the men’s team, the lowest nationally ranked team from the Big 12, has a chance to move up. “The conference meet is a funny thing; it never really goes to form,” Ihmels said. Last season, when the men’s team finished ninth at the Big 12 meet, a few

of the distance runners were close to securing a few more points that could have helped propel them into a higher place. “We’ve got to turn the corner on that and really expect that we are going to make the finals,” Ihmels said. Pepin, who, according to Thornton, is “the master of putting great indoor teams together,” has led the Huskers to more indoor championships — 14 — than any of the other


Lacey leads late comeback Senior guard rallies Cyclones to grab victory

For the first time in four years, the No. 15 Cyclones left Allen Field House in Lawrence, Kan., with a victory. Iowa State (21–5, 9–4 Big 12) slid past the Jayhawks 57–54 and were led by senior point guard Alison Lacey’s 22 points. Lacey led not only in points, but also in big plays at big moments. “It’s a huge win for our team and we’ve played a lot of great teams in this building and not come out of here feeling like we do right now,” said coach Bill Fennelly after the game. Lacey started a 7–0 run with just three minutes left to play in the game that gave the Cyclones the eventual win, and she sealed the deal with two free throws with 6.5 seconds to play in the game. Along with her 22 points, Lacey finished with five as-

sists. On the receiving end of Lacey’s infamous assists were Iowa State’s three freshmen posts — Chelsea Poppens, Amanda Zimmerman and Anna Prins. Showing their speed down the court, the three posts hustled down the floor in transition, accounting for numerous points off of turnovers for Iowa State. “All of our freshmen I felt went in and contributed and did some really positive things,” Fennelly said. “They’ve matured and they’re at the point in the season when they need to play that way and I think at times in the first half we were reacting instead of competing and in the second half we competed and that’s why we ended up finding a way win.” Prins added 12 points for the Cyclones while Pop-

pens ripped down seven total rebounds. Iowa State out rebounded Kansas 33-30 overall, and 13 to 5 on the offensive end. The Cyclones scored 21 points off the Jayhawks’ turnovers and committed only 10 turnovers on the night. The smart play by Iowa State accounted for the second half comeback, when freshmen were playing like upperclassmen and the seniors were making plays seniors can be known for. “I thought the last two and a half minutes we were very efficient,” Fennelly said. “Whatever we asked them to do they did it and I think the biggest thing when you come back, you’ve got to stop the other guy from scoring, which

Iowa State to face No. 6 Georgia By Michael Zogg Daily Staff Writer The Georgia Tournament will provide the highest profile team Iowa State has played yet this year in No. 6 Georgia, and Iowa State gets to play them twice this weekend. The Cyclones (6–5) travel to Athens, Ga., this weekend for another five-game tournament. In addition to two games against Georgia, Iowa State will play South Alabama, St. John’s and Charleston Southern. Last season, Georgia fell just short of the national championship game as it made a trip to the World Series, where it went 3–2 with both losses coming against eventual national champion Washington. “They went to the World Series last year,” said senior first baseman Sydni Jones. “We got to see them on TV. That

is the kind of team we want to be playing. So to have the opportunity to play Georgia, not once, but twice is great, because that is the kind Kidwell of team we need to be playing against and beating in order to get to where we want to go.” Iowa State is confident that it will have some success against Georgia. Both Jones and senior outfielder Kelsey Kidwell said they were looking forward to beating Georgia this weekend. “We have been playing well no matter who we are playing, and Georgia is just another team,” Kidwell said. “We are just going to go out there and play as well as we have been playing and we will be fine.”

One of the reasons for the Cyclones’ confidence is their consistency against good competition. This season, Iowa State has upped the level of competition it faces in the non-conference portion of its schedule, especially early in the year. Although the 6–5 start that the team has gotten off to hardly mirrors last year’s 10–1 start, the team is more pleased with this season’s mark. “It is definitely a little disappointing to not be able to say we are 11–0 or 12–0, but with the games we have won so far, those are great wins for us, and even our losses have come against good teams and ranked teams,” Kidwell said. “They have been really close.” The Georgia Tournament may hold a trap game or two for the Cyclones. They play their only ranked opponent, Georgia, in the second

and fourth games this weekend. That means in every game against a nonranked team they will either have a game with Georgia looming or they will be coming out of one. Iowa State is not worried about a letdown, however. The team says it feels focused, as it has all season. Although this year’s team thinks consistency is one of its strengths, it has been an issue for Cyclone teams in the past couple years. Coach Stacy Gemeinhardt-Cesler thinks the team is over that, though. “The senior class has a good control over that,” she said. “They know the importance of consistent play. I think that they intended to in the past, but even though their intentions were right, they still didn’t get the job done. Now, their intentions are right and they clearly see what they need to do in order to get it done.”

from PAGE 3 there almost three months; until she regained enough weight that it was safe. “I remember the first time she got to go out, she was so elated,” Arnie smiled. “Oh, the sunshine!” Marcia remembered her daughter saying aloud. Emily loved her freedom and the sense of independence she was denied in treatment facilities. “This eating disorder cost her

her freedom,” Marcia said, “and it cost her her independence.” Emily spent four months in the inpatient program at the University of Iowa Hospitals, and another four months in outpatient treatment. Yet, Emily was still unable to maintain the weight she had gained during treatment. The key that would wake Emily from this nightmare seemed to be fading into the background, a hazy image she was unable to reach out and grab. She then checked into the Methodist Hospital in Minnesota, but she was not there for more

than a month. By this time, Emily probably thought ‘I’m never going to recover from this,’ Marcia said. Emily was becoming resistant to treatment, and she was tiring of being in hospitals for months at a time. “It was just very frustrating for us,” Arnie said, “because it just defies all logic.” Arnie described the logical thoughts that friends and family of eating disordered people ask themselves. Knowing they suffer from weight loss and knowing that if they would just eating a proper amount of food to help them regain their weight and health, people ask why they don’t just do that. But Arnie said sufferers don’t think that way ... “it’s a power beyond that.” Emily, resistant to treatment but still trying to find that key, checked into Meritcare Hospitals in Fargo, S.D. She spent another three months trying to help herself. All the while the eating disorder had taken total control of her. As osteoporosis had also set in, Emily was struggling — mentally, physically and psychologically. She voluntarily checked out mid-July. “She was expecting to be good at everything, and any time she failed at anything, I think it really affected her because she didn’t have many failures,” Arnie said. Emily made the trip back to Ankeny. Arnie’s mother, Emily’s grandmother, was living in a nursing home, so her house, about five miles from Arnie and Marcia, was vacant. Emily moved into the home so she could maintain some sense of freedom and privacy. By this time, Emily’s mother explained, she had to come to terms that her daughter, who had been successful at everything she

had done, might actually fail. She believed Emily knew she didn’t have long to live. Something that started in college had followed Emily around the country. From Georgia to Tennessee, Arizona, Iowa City, Minnesota, South Dakota and back to Ankeny, it had dug to the depths of her soul and robbed her of her identity, her spirit and her ability to live. As hard as it may be for a parent to face that his or her child may not have long to live, Marcia Fischer had come to terms with it. Emily spent the next five weeks elated because she knew she wasn’t going to be sent to another hospital, as her parents promised. She was living on her own, enjoying her freedom, and close enough to her parents that she could see them regularly. But the eating disorder had taken such a toll on her and had so much control over her, that even being home again and coming to terms that she was probably going to die did not phase her.

She could not just shake off the eating disorder like a cobweb. “I think those last five weeks were probably the happiest weeks she’d had in a long time, and I’m glad that we could give that to her,” Marcia said as she began to well up with tears, remembering those last five weeks she was able to see her daughter alive. Arnie, hanging on to the thought that his daughter could still have the wonderful life she was expected to live, still believed Emily could make it. Arnie believed that if she could just realize she needed to change her life somehow she would see that she had to change in order to live. Arnie went to his mother’s house to mow the lawn. Emily always came out to extend a loving “Hey, Dad” to her father. When Arnie was about halfway done mowing the lawn, he realized Emily hadn’t greeted him. Curious as to why, he stopped the mower and walked to the door

of the house. It was locked, so he peered in through the window, squinting to make out images from inside the house, to find Emily sitting in the kitchen. Marcia spilled out in grief what Arnie, turning his head and wincing, was unable to say. “He just peered inside, and he could see her on the floor. He unlocked the door, and when he found her, she had her arms crossed over her chest. The newspaper was spread out on the table, so we think she was reading the newspaper, and her cell phone was under her ear, so we think she was trying to call somebody,” was all Marcia could get out before covering her mouth with her hand and closing her eyes. After struggling for 20 years, the beautiful Emily Fischer, who had everything going for her, was lying on the floor, finally at peace. “No one was with her when she died, but I’m pretty convinced she died peacefully. And she was a

siness. She went on to work for a nie Fischer

Christian, so we know she went to heaven,” Marcia said, nodding as to assure herself, “and that gives us a lot of comfort.” Arnie called 911, and police and paramedics arrived at the home where Emily Fischer had passed away Aug. 21, 2009, from a 20 year battle with anorexia. Kimberly Westerfield, who had once been close to Emily, received a phone call and e-mail from Emily’s sister-in-law that Emily had passed away. “My first reaction was emotion, and the inability to really understand how something like this could happen to my dear friend Emily. She just had everything going for her ...” Kimberly recalled. Kimberly also mentioned the guilt she felt for not keeping in close contact at the end of Emily’s life. “You always wonder, gosh if I wouldn’t have fallen off of her radar. You always wonder in the back of your mind if there’s some-

thing that you could’ve done,” Kimberly said. Marcia said that looking back, she can say all of things she should or shouldn’t have done, but really there’s no way to know. Marcia even remembers asking Emily before she went to college, when she felt she was having some trouble within her spirit and asked, “Emily, do you have the tools to go to Iowa State?” But Emily just said, “Oh yeah, I’m fine.” “She just exuded that confidence, gave that perception that everything was always fine,” Marcia said. Friends, community members and even Emily’s Kappa sisters from Iowa State attended Emily’s funeral to show their support. They gathered to share memories of Emily. Surprised and glad to see a number of Emily’s Kappa sisters at the funeral, Marcia was taken aback by a conversation. “They said, ‘Mrs. Fischer, a lot of us did that [practiced eating disorder behaviors], but we got over it, and we thought Emily did too.” “And that’s what we want people to know,” Marcia said, “that you start down this path, and you don’t know how far you’re going to go and how long it’s going to hold you there. You don’t know if you’re the one that’s going to get hooked.” But Marcia and Arnie believe that if an eating disorder is caught early, a full recovery can be expected. “I think in Emily’s case we did have an early intervention, but what Emily needed was that consistent follow through, and that’s the piece that was missing in Emily’s situation,” Marcia said. Marcia said Emily always had high expectations for herself and

strived to fulfill those expectations. “She just had that genetic bent, that personality. Not that every perfectionist is going to have problems, but everything just sort of came together, I think, and in fertile soil it just created this illness,” Marcia concluded. As Marcia and Arnie look back, they try to collect the pieces that might have added up as a result of an eating disorder. Looking back to Emily’s junior and senior years of high school, Marcia thinks her daughter may have started bottling her emotions and feeling anger within herself. “I’ve learned that when you start holding things in, it leads to depression. If you don’t feel accepted or able to express, then you’re going to turn inward.” Kimberly said that with Emily’s death came “a real outpouring of women,” and as a result their pledge class has become much closer. They are even planning a reunion at Iowa State next fall for a home football game. “It really opened all of our eyes,” Kimberly said. Kimberly took up a collection for Emily’s services, and 30 Kappa women donated money. With it, they purchased flowers for Emily’s funeral, but there was some left over, and that’s when Kimberly contacted Marcia and Arnie Fischer. In doing some research, Kimberly found out about Eating Disorder Awareness Week and asked the Fischers if they would like to put the rest of the money toward the event. “We were confident that’s where we wanted to put our monies,” Marcia said. “I think the Eating Disorder Awareness Event at Iowa State is a pretty big deal,” Arnie said. “This is a good event to make people

aware of eating disorders, and an opportunity to share our story in order to help people.” The Fischers hope to help someone struggling with an eating disorder. They believe Emily’s story will help others. “We want to hear from people if they want to contact us if they’re struggling or someone they love is struggling, because we can say we’ve been there, and we’re happy to talk to them,” Marcia said. Marcia is also writing Emily’s story as a way to process what happened and to “make some sense out of something so sense-

less.” Marcia believes that in the end, “She was not the same person when she died as when she was in high school and college. It really took everything that she was and everything that she loved. Her family, friends, a meaningful job, service to others, recreation — it just took everything. And that’s the danger of an eating disorder, just like any other addiction, it robs you of everything that you love.” Arnie and Marcia’s advice for someone who thinks they might have an eating disorder is to con-

tact counseling services and get some basic evaluations. Arnie believes evaluations are the best thing to do if you have any question about whether you are eating disordered. Admitting it is another huge step they feel a student needs to address. “It’s so critical to face it, address it and take some action,” Marcia said. “There’s no shame in asking for help.” Transition here. “If Emily were alive today, she would say, ‘I don’t want anyone going down the road I went down.’”

letes in the NCAA,” Pepin said. Nebraska has not won a Big 12 Indoor Championship since the men shared the conference title with Texas in 2007, something Pepin and his staff hope to change this weekend. “Every year we start off the year with a goal of trying to win a championship both indoors and outdoors,” Pepin said. “The conference meets have always meant a lot to our school, so it’s something that our staff is looking at and aiming at all year.” Texas is another of the 10 Big 12 teams ranked in the top 50 on both the

men’s and women’s sides. The men’s track and field coach, Thornton, and the Longhorns will pursue their fifth consecutive Big 12 Indoor Championship on the men’s side, and the women will look for their first since 2006. In his fifteenth year at the helm, Thornton has realized the astounding depth of the conference. “There are really great athletes at all of the universities within the Big 12,” Thornton said. “We’re [the Big 12 conference] a lot more than just two or three athletes.” When it comes to the highest levels

of competition, Thornton has overseen men’s teams in his fifteen years at Texas and as coach of the Beijing Olympic team that have had success at the national and international levels. Competition in the Winter Olympics wraps up this weekend, but for those looking for their fix of Olympic competition, Thornton says fans should look no further than the Big 12 Indoor Championships. “[Fans] are going to get to see some things that you only get to see at an Olympic Games; that’s how special these [athletes] that are coming there

Daily Sudoku






Daily Horoscope : by Nancy Black & Stephanie Clements

Gemini: Ask for rain checks. Today’s Birthday: Expect drama in your life this year. Power plays occur all the time, but you’ll be at the focus. An older associate knows the score and has good ideas for handling strangers who act like friends. Consider first impressions two or three times. Trust your instincts. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) -- Today is 7 -- Flavor your activities with some element from a dream. Get creative early and leave adjustments for later in the day.

Solution: 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

Taurus (April 20-May 20) -- Today is an 8 -- If you have a big weekend planned, start early and take care of arrangements. Check details as something changes -- in a good way! Gemini (May 21-June 21) -- Today is a 6 -- Remain open to all offers that come your way today. Can’t say yes to everything? Ask for rain checks.

Adapt wisely when others change their minds. Cancer (June 22-July 22) -- Today is a 6 -- Begin a new day with renewed energy. Take an early walk to get the juices flowing. Remain flexible. New ideas tip the scales your way. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Today is a 6 -- Exaggerate if you must just to get it out of your system. Then devise a practical way of achieving the desired result. Planning saves time in the end. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- You tend to take off in all directions at once. Not helpful! Focus on yourself first, then have a private conversation. Share responsibility for a key decision. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Today is an 8 -- Never think that the project is complete. Someone can always make changes. The question is, do these little adjustments really help? Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Today

Es Tas

is a 5 -- Plan on more sorting and organizing. Another person may need your assistance here. Yes, you are better at it! And helping actually gets you out the door faster. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -Today is a 7 -- If you weren’t so busy today, you’d have more time to hang out with friends. As it is, you need to focus to keep from getting scattered. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Today is an 8 -- Busy doesn’t begin to describe it. A few major changes occur early on, and you shift gears to accommodate an associate’s ego. It had to happen sooner or later. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Today is an 8 -- You’ve passed a milestone. Associates pose a question that you answer easily. Your position in the workplace moves forward. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Today is a 5 -- Go there. Do that. Come back. Leave again. Today is all about movement in and out of your space.

started by Lacey. After snatching the ball out of Davis’ hands, Lacey took the ball to the other end for a lefthanded layup and drew a foul, putting Iowa State within one. “You’ve got to find a way to score easy points against Kansas [because] it’s so hard to score on them so we got some transition points and got to the free throw line a little more in the second half,� Fennelly said. With four key road wins, Iowa State has just two conference games left and remain in contention for a second-place finish in the Big 12. “[We] did the things that Iowa State does to win and really happy for our kids and hopefully we can come back with one day of prep and beat a team that beat us the first time,� Fennelly said. With a road win in their pocket, the Cyclones will have one day in Hilton Coliseum to prepare before hosting Kansas State on Saturday in Ames. Iowa State fell to the Wildcats early in the year in Manhattan, Kan., after senior forward Ashley Sweat lit up the floor for Kansas State and compiled 31 points. The Wildcats will enter Ames after an overtime loss to Texas Tech on Wednesday. Kansas State (12-15, 4-9 Big 12) is currently on a four-game losing streak in conference play, and heading into one of the nation’s toughest women’s basketball environments may not be good news for the Wildcats. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. on Saturday at Hilton Coliseum.

we did and then we had to make big plays on offense.� Lacey wasn’t the only senior on the floor making key plays. Senior Denae Stuckey, a player known for her tight defense over her shooting percentage, nailed a jumper as the shot clock wound down with 1:20 left to play in the game to put Iowa State up by three. “Denae might have hit the biggest shot in her life, or at least her time at Iowa State,� Fennelly said. “Seniors make big plays and the other kids did their job.� While Kansas’ known playmaker Danielle McCray was not on the court due to a recent ACL tear, two freshmen stepped into position and carried some of the weight for the Jayhawks. Especially in the second half, time and time again post Carolyn Davis came through for Kansas and guard Monica Engelman hit her shots if she wasn’t feeding it to Davis. “Engelman and Davis have certainly picked up the slack, and them some, after the injury to Danielle McCray,� Fennelly said. “I think the good thing for those two kids is the injury allowed them to play.� Davis finished with 17 points and Engelman posted 15, and despite the freshmen’s efforts and a four-point lead with three minutes to play, the Jayhawks fell after a Cyclone comeback
