VARSITY THEATER Costs, benefits weighed as proposal debate continues

Editor’s note: This is the first in a two-part series on GSB’s proposal to rent and renovate what was formerly Varsity Theater. The second part will focus on the outstanding issues that left the senate delaying the vote for another week — to Wednesday night’s meeting.

By Kyle Peterson Daily Staff Writer Ian Ringgenberg, graduate student in interdisciplinary graduate studies, remembers the Varsity Theater fondly. “My freshman and sophomore year, that was what you did,” Ringgenberg said. “I saw ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ there. I saw ‘Shawshank Redemption.’” After Cinemark vacated the space in January 2009, the building sat empty for months. That got Ringgenberg thinking. “I walked by one day and saw that theVarsity was closed,” Ringgenberg said. “I was really just kind of heartbroken.” Through the Campustown Student Association, he connected with Tom Danielson, senior in civil engineering and Government of the Student Body finance director, who had similar feelings about the theater. The two looked at options for revitalizing the Varsity, took tours of the property and did some estimating on whether they thought they could get an initiative off the ground. “Once we found all that basic information, we just kind of determined that it was actually feasible, as a student initiative, to do,” Danielson said. At first, Ringgenberg said many viewed the proposal as a shot in the dark. “No one really took us seriously,” Ringgenberg said. “No one really thought that this would happen. People were just kind of playing along, for the time being.” So the two began gathering information, and the GSB set up a task force to explore the idea. Without experience in the movie theater business, it was sometimes hard to know where to start. “When we’re looking for a screen, I’m googling ‘movie theater screen,’” Ringgenberg said. “We did get in contact with a theater owner in Des Moines. They pointed us to a few kind of regional resources.”

Attendance analysis

Student Activities Center staff also helped the task force formulate their budget, said George Micalone, director of student activities. Micalone has previous experience working with a film program at the University of South Carolina, and said such programs are somewhat widespread. “Many universities show movies on campus in the same format as they’re proposing for Cyclone Cinema,” Micalone said. “What’s common is to show second-run films on campus. What’s uncommon is to have a consistent space and consistent schedule.” In fact, the Student Union Board currently shows films in the Memorial Union, but Micalone said the current setup leaves much to be desired. “We’re using PowerPoint projectors to project images from a VCR on a screen that’s certainly not made for showing movies,” Micalone said. Believing their idea represented a step up for the program, multiple task force members set out to spread the word on the project, visiting constituency councils and student organizations to talk about the idea. “We went wherever we could find,” Ringgenberg said. The group brought four-question surveys to the meetings, and the input they received from students has helped to shape the final proposal. “It’s helped us think about this theater and what students will want and what students will use,” Ringgenberg said. “Our Thursday through Sunday schedule comes directly from that. By and far, that’s when students see films.” Other In all, Ringgenberg said that he, Danielson and several other task force members have probably spent more than 400 hours Bar on the project. events seeMore THEATER on PAGE 14 Grocery store What would you most like to see in Campustown?

Spring Fair

Career opportunities teeming Connections vital for employment, job search should be assertive By Whitney Sager Daily Staff Writer Rather than waiting for a job offer to appear in the mail, business students are encouraged to get out there and make connections with potential employers. The colleges of Business, Liberal Arts and Sciences and Engineering Career Fair takes place from noon–6 p.m. Tuesday in Hilton Coliseum. All business students are encouraged to attend, even if they currently have an internship set up. “We really want them to get the message that you need to go over there to connect with employers,” said Tammy Stegman, career coordinator for Business Career Services. “This is your time to build relationships.” Megan Groshek, graduate assistant in educational leadership and policy studies and career coordinator for Business Career Services, said the Career Fair is one of the few times students will actually be approached by employers. “Employers are coming to them because they want to connect with them, they want to connect with Iowa State students and I think that’s a really important message to get out,” Groshek said. With the struggling economy, students may think employers are not hiring. But this is not the case. Stegman said research and statistics show employers are beginning to hire college graduates again. “It’s our job to properly inform them so that they know, yes, they are hiring and there are jobs out there, but they have to assertive,” Stegman said. “They have to go out and look for them, they can’t just expect something to just be delivered in their mailbox with their dream job after they graduate.” Eric Davis, account executive of Des Moines Truck Brokers, Inc., said representatives from the company have not been to Iowa State’s Career Fair in a long time. They are attending this year in the hopes of improving their business. “We’re a small company with only nine employees,” Davis said. “We’re looking to grow and need someone to help us grow.” Davis said the company is looking for graduating students to cover the position of carrier coordinator. There is also a possibility of the company hiring an intern who would be an assistant to the carrier coordinator, Davis said. Signs of the economy rebuilding itself may also be noted by companies who are attending the Career Fair for the first time. Aaron’s Sales and Lease Ownership, Inc. is one of those companies. Kyle Gall, general manager of Aaron’s in Ames, said the company started out with four businesses 10 years ago and hopes to have 100 stores within the next 10 years. He said the company is looking to hire graduating seniors who are motivated and willing to help the company reach its goal. “Obviously Iowa State is a huge deal in the state of Iowa, and there’s a bunch of really great students that have come out of that school,” Gall said. “Any way we can get our hands on some great personalities and great people for the company, we really want to try to do that.”

Internship availability abundant despite gloomy economic situation

Three colleges join together, interview preparation important

By Heidi Ebert Daily Staff Writer

By Chelsea Davis Daily Staff Writer

Participation in both the spring and fall ISU Engineering Career Fairs by potential employers is down from an all-time high just last year. While these numbers may reflect the impact of the economic downturn on engineering jobs, there is still hope for students looking to secure an internship position over the next year. “I don’t pay attention to headlines,” said Scott Zalaznik, recruiter for the Iowa Department of Transportation. “If you’re going into civil engineering, the future is bright. It’s just a matter of patience.” Dave Swenson, an associate scientist in economics at Iowa State, agrees that a good engineer will always be able to find a job, but it may take more time during an economic downturn. “During a recession I feel especially sorry for engineers,” Swenson said. In a recession, there is a big pool of experienced engineers looking for work, as well as new engineers. The manufacturing and construction industries in the United States are some of the hardest hit. Engineers going into either of these two industries may be hard pressed to find a job. When manufacturing plants look at cutting jobs, many of their “skilled talent” gets laid off, but often many firms use slowdowns as an opportunity for developing new technology, Swenson said. John Deere is one of the companies that is still expanding. The company is looking to fill over 400 internship positions this year. Most of these internships are filled by the spring so students know where they are going to be by winter break. “We are always looking for “total solutions” for farmers,” said Tony Kajewski, continuous improvement engineering manager for John Deere. The company is expanding into wind farming and irrigation systems. There is also a need for more engineers because of increased emission standards for engines that go into effect 2014. The United States Environmental Protection Agency recently adopted a policy for higher regulations on pollution and greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, emitted from nonroad diesel engines. The rule is called the Tier 4 Final Rule. According to the EPA’s Web site, “exhaust emissions from these engines will decrease by more than 90 percent.” This new policy will be adopted in increments until 2014. Because of the new standard, companies working with big, diesel machinery like John Deere and Caterpillar are forced to improve their engines. The Iowa DOT also has not seen a decrease in the number of cooperative educational program positions. The department is looking for anyone completing their sophomore year of an engineering degree. The projects students work on are mostly civil engineering, but the positions are not limited to civil engineers. “We participate in engineering fairs primarily as a means to make students aware of the tremendous opportunity our co-op program provides,” Zalaznik said. “Iowa’s transportation needs are not decreasing, which means there is an increasing need for transportation [civil] engineers. Even before the present economic challenges, companies have been concerned about and trying to prepare for the expected surge in baby-boomer retirements.”

For the first time ever, the colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Business and Engineering career fairs will combine into one fair that will nearly overflow Hilton Coliseum from noon–6 p.m. Tuesday. “The biggest challenge was deciding to combine this with the Engineering Career Fair,” said Kimberly Caponi, associate director of LAS Career Services. “Although similar, the two are logistically different.” Because the spring career fair is always slightly smaller than the fall, Caponi said the department didn’t think there would be enough business coming to justify the expense of using Hilton to host the event. “It’s great that this is such a large event when the economy is so discouraging,” Caponi said. “It’s sold out, so we’re really pleased.” During the past week students have had the opportunity to take advantage of the Career Services’ workshops. Mock interviewing is one way students can prepare for the Career Fair. “Generally students are not very prepared for the professional world,” said Amy Higgins, senior in history and a mock interviewer for LAS Career Services. “They don’t have a long work history and usually have no experience in job interviews.” Higgins wants students to take advantage of mock interviewing because she feels “like a lot of people don’t really know about it.” “We videotape the whole thing and have an evaluation sheet to let students know positive things and things they can improve on [in their interviews],” Higgins said. “It’s important for students to maintain a professional personality, which is difficult because they’re in an informal setting everyday.” Caponi said students have the responsibility to go to the Career Fair and give employers a good impression of Iowa State so they will continue to come back. “We had some students this fall in shorts and T-shirts,” Caponi said. “This is not a party atmosphere; you need to dress up like you’re going to an interview.” Caponi also said although it may be intimidating, it’s better for students to go as freshmen than as a senior. “If you go as a freshman, then by the time you’re a senior you’ll be confident and will know what to expect,” Caponi said. Nearly every major will be represented at the fair. The Career Fair is even a great opportunity for open option majors, especially since there are so many of them in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences. “It’s also a good place to think about what you want to major in,” Caponi said. Liberal Arts and Sciences majors have a diversity that could work anywhere, Caponi said. “Almost any organization probably has a position that a LAS major could fill, it just takes a little more digging [on behalf of the student,]” Caponi said. “Recruiters are looking for stars and people who stand out.”

Violations included 17 cases of minors at the bar, 12 cases of minors with fake IDs, two cases of minors in possession of alcohol and one failure to prevent minors from obtaining alcohol among other citations. Police have responded to 58 calls including occurrences of disorderly conduct, assault, noise and public intoxication in the past year. “With the number of violations, we just felt it was prudent to bring it to the council with a six-month recommendation,” said Chuck Cychosz, chief of police.

have investigated incidences of alcohol being served after hours, including an instance where the manager was cited for “dispensing alcoholic beverages after hours.” Emily Burton, deputy city clerk, works with renewing alcohol licenses. She mentioned that a six-month license has the same privileges as a regular 12-month license, the only difference is it’s issued for a shorter time period. The police department will give Cy’s Roost six months to improve. At the end of this pe-

riod, the bar will be eligible for consideration for a full renewal. “In most cases, the liquor license holders are very responsive to our concerns and are able to make the management changes we recommend and improve their operations,” Cychosz said. Cychosz said at the end of the six-month period, the Ames Police Department will report back to the City Council with recommendations of what action it should take next. Ames Police has officers patrolling the Campustown area along with regular visits to bars

to ensure they are operating up to standards. “We have quarterly bar meetings and we communicate our concerns to the bar managers on a regular basis,” Cychosz said. “Particularly if we think there are things they should do differently or improve upon.” Cy’s Roost manager Andy White was unavailable to comment, but according to the liquor license renewal criteria form submitted by Lt. Jeff Brinkley, the bar’s management has “been proactively addressing some issues that have been identified during the past year.” The report also stated, “In recent discussions with owner, Andy White, it became clear he may not have a clear understanding of all the violations that occurred at Cy’s.” The report stated White is addressing these issues with his management staff and will be installing cameras at the bar. “We’ve recognized some problems — both of us, the police department and the management team for the bar,” Cychosz said. “I think they’re on the right track to making some improvements.”

Opinion State Gym, Beyer updates Trimming the fat PAGE 6 | Iowa State Daily | Tuesday, February 9, 2010 Editor S. Prell | | 515.294.6768


well worth wait

Lied Recreation Athletic Center is 20 years old now, and the forces that brought it into existence are all but forgotten. Regardless, this befuddling gray area created between student services and athletics rears its ugly head every time a student hopes to play basketball during the same night as a track meet or from 2–6 p.m. every weekday when Lied’s track is reserved for student athletes. We took our questions to Dean of Students Dione Somerville and Senior Associate Athletics Director of Sports Administration Calli Sanders, who were chock full of answers, genuinely interested in ensuring that every aspect of the system made sense and, more importantly, had the interests of the student body and the institution as a whole as first priority. Lied’s name tells the whole story: It is both a recreation and athletic center. It was built, and will remain, a joint facility for the foreseeable future. Its funding was, indeed, complicated: A student fee and an initial athletic contribution went only toward construction, with maintenance of the facility falling upon the ISU athletic department. Lied, Somerville said, and all athletic facilities reflect the needs of the generation that constructed them. State Gym and Beyer Hall represent the needs of a time when physical education classes were required and cavernous locker rooms were necessary. Lied represents the needs of a generation before us. The school and athletic department were able to cooperate and provide a facility to house several athletic programs and simultaneously update facilities available to students. Which explains why the new expansion will be strictly for students. Despite appearances early in the planning process, the athletic department ended involvement after the project’s scope removed a competition pool and gymnastics gym. Somerville pointed out that State Gym’s old configuration didn’t serve the average student: “out of bounds is a radiator” and “there were other people keeping our students from using the courts.” Two problems that the renovation will almost certainly alleviate. The Forker Building is a classroom, home of the kinesiology department; therefore neither of the administrators we met are able to make it available. Further adding to the recreation strain, Lied’s track, itself, is a draw. It has provided Iowa State with opportunities to host more meets. Due to the economy, the track team had to cut travel budgets, so increasing the number of home meets has helped the team remain competitive and potentially brought more money to the school. Unfortunately for the all the pickup basketball players, these meets are a great thing for Iowa State. Due to the increase in home track meets, the Sukup Basketball Complex will be made available to students. This idea is the result of a collaborative effort between students services and the athletic department to help “fill the void” when Lied hosts the Big 12 Indoor Championships. The facility is located at the corner of Mortensen Road and South Dakota Avenue, and will be open from 6–9 p.m. Feb. 26 and 2–5 p.m. Feb. 27. With our questions largely answered, we were enthusiastically encouraged to contact either department with any other concerns. “We’re doing our best,” Somerville said, and her effort is greatly appreciated. As the university grows and facilities change, we need patience in these transition periods. There may be another yearand-a-half of congestion before the renovations are fully complete and the recreation capacity approaches demand. Until then, and even after, they encouraged students to contact building managers or e-mail their department should any questions, comments or concerns arise. The message of the meeting was clear: In a period of transition and until the rec renovations are completed, our administrators are striving to serve us as best they can. Be patient, and don’t shy from questioning policies drafted in the ’90s. Nobody’s trying to hide anything from us. As Somerville and Sanders will tell you, they’re certainly not trying to keep us from working out.


Listing fast food calories reduces bad decisions to unhealthily indulge


hile Americans are spending just 9.6 percent of their income on food — an all-time low — the USDA’s Economic Research Service reports that 49 percent of the total food budget of Americans goes to purchasing food away from home, which is an all-time high. Not surprisingly, the bulk of these awayfrom-home food dollars are spent at fast-food or takeout restaurants — those ever-present bastions of convenience and cheap eats. The United States has nearly 950,000 restaurants and food service outlets, and a hefty majority of them fit in the same category as McDonald’s and Domino’s Pizza. Visiting and ordering from these places is OK, but a problem arises when Americans eat these foods each and every day, with no regard for the calories, fat, sodium and sugar content. Doing so is a large part of what makes the United States the world’s fattest nation. Indeed, ERS data shows the increase in fast-food consumption that is associated with highercalorie, less-nutritive meals closely parallels the rise of obesity in the U.S. Granted, other factors, particularly an across-the-board lack of exercise for people of all ages, play a role in what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention refers to as the obesity epidemic, but fast food is a formidable factor. Two studies published in 2002 in the Journal of Nutrition and the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, each found that people consume roughly twice as many calories on average when dining out or purchasing takeout when compared to the preparation and consumption of their own meals at home. Another study, published in 2009 in the journal Obesity, found that New Yorkers consumed an average of 857 calories when eating their lunch at fast-food chains, with 39 percent ordering over 1,000 calories. Perhaps most worrisome is the finding that young children, who develop eating patterns in their early years, are consuming fast food as often as adults. As reported in 2004 in the journal Pediatrics, just less than onefourth of children aged 4 to 8 are fed fast food on a daily basis. Given these statistics, it’s no wonder that in 2003 the World Health Organization declared fast-food marketing and consumption as a “probable cause” of the consistent increase in worldwide obesity and especially that of the United States. Nor should it come as a surprise that policymakers and nutritional scientists see fast-food consumption as a clear target in the effort to curb the rise of obesity across America. But it’s not what could be called an easy target. As stated, millions of Americans take advantage of the convenience of fast food each day, and it seems unlikely that any public campaign would significantly reduce their visits. Another possibility is raising taxes on the fast-food and restaurant industry, but such an action would be undeniably difficult given the size and power of the National Restaurant Association. Instead, the policymakers’ idea is pretty simple: If more people are aware of the calories they’re ordering at restaurants, and, notably, the calories they are feeding their kids, more people will make smarter choices. States from California to Maine have already passed laws requiring menu board labeling, and the Center for Science in the Public Interest CSPI reports that the practice has been fully implemented in Philadelphia; New York City; all of Westchester County, N.Y.; and King County, Wash. Following the trend, federal menu labeling standards have been introduced in both the House and Senate.

The Menu Education and Labeling Act — the MEAL Act for short — was most recently introduced May 14, 2009, in the House and Senate by Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., and Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa. It would require “that food, beverages and meals served in restaurants and similar retail food establishments that are part of a chain with 20 or more outlets shall list, adjacent to each food item listed, on menus, menu boards and other signs, the total number of calories, grams of saturated plus trans fat and milligrams of sodium per menu item, as offered for sale, in a clear and conspicuous manner.” At the joint announcement, DeLauro said, “Access to nutritional information at restaurants is more important than ever, particularly given that a number of studies link eating out with higher caloric intake and obesity. With few restaurants providing easy to use and easy to find nutrition information, the MEAL Act represents an incremental step toward combating increasing obesity rates.” As DeLauro noted, legislation is necessary because while fast-food chains such as McDonald’s, Domino’s and Burger King do provide nutrition information, it is on their Web sites, on tray liners or in brochures — places consumers are highly unlikely to look before making their purchases. Indeed, Yale psychologists reported in the April 2009 American Journal of Public Health that the vast majority of consumers do not access this information. In their study, they observed consumers’ behavior at New York City-area fast-food eateries such as McDonald’s and Burger King, and while all restaurants provided nutrition information in some form, only six out of 4,311 people actually took notice. Reading this study, I wrote a column last spring and concluded that while the MEAL Act is no doubt well-intentioned, it would basically be worthless. As I put it, “Americans who choose to regularly eat at fast-food restaurants in the United States do not give a fig about the calories, fat or anything else that is in what they are about to order and eat. They care about price, taste and convenience. So while the MEAL Act is a nice thought and calls attention to what is essentially a nationwide pandemic, I am holding my breath on just how much it can change.” And now, as I write, my foot is in my mouth. I was wrong and I am happy to admit it.

Three researchers at Stanford’s business school reported in January 2010 that menu labeling does in fact result in consumers ordering fewer calories. Using data from Starbucks in Boston, New York City and Philadelphia — where labeling has been mandated — they found that consumers are now ordering an average of 6 percent fewer calories per transaction than before the regulations were put in place. Interestingly, they reported that consumers showed no difference in drink calories ordered, food calories were solely responsible for the reduction; that Starbucks average profits were not impacted whatsoever; and notably, that the subset of stores located near Dunkin’ Donuts actually increased their overall revenue after beginning to post. If that wasn’t good enough, at the end of January 2010, a study was published in Pediatrics which suggested that menu labeling could have a significant impact at fast-food restaurants as well. Specifically, Dr. Pooja Tandon, researcher at the Seattle Children’s Research Institute and the study’s principal investigator, found that parents who were provided with the calorie content on a McDonald’s menu chose an average of 102 calories less for their children than parents who did not. An e-mail Tandon sent said, “I think providing more information to consumers can only help, and hopefully will lead to lower calorie consumption from restaurants on a population level. What menu labeling does is that it gives consumers the tools to make better choices when they are eating out at restaurants. The more information they have, the better decisions they can make.” Taking these studies as evidence, the MEAL Act can only help our nation battle obesity, an epidemic which not only impacts two-thirds of Americans’ lives but, as Senator Harkin said, contributes to the development of the chronic diseases that are responsible for 75 percent of the $2 trillion we spend on health care each year. So send Senator Harkin a letter, it’s the next thing I’m going to do.

We also think it might be of comfort to you to know that we, Jon’s parents and brother, are guided each day by the simple question of, “What would Jon tell us to do?” Jon, a practical and kind young man, would tell us the simple truth we already know. He would tell us to do what makes life best: live fully, laugh, eat good

food, be creative, be kind to each other. Finally, he would tell us not to feel guilty for living fully, even in the midst of the present uncertainty.

Agriculture in the Twenty-first Century

Ed Schafer Tuesday, 8pm February 9, 2010

Great Hall, Memorial Union

Former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Ed Schafer has served as an elected official, business executive, and entrepreneur. As governor of North Dakota from 1992 to 2000, Schafer worked to promote trade relations with China and develop that nation as an export market for North Dakota farm products. He also led efforts to upgrade the state’s communications infrastructure and make high-speed voice and data networks available to farmers, ranchers and rural businesses. Schafer was elected chair of the Republican Governors Association in 2000 and that same year cofounded the Governors Biotechnology Partnership. Before entering public life, he was a business executive with the Gold Seal Company in Bismarck. He also cofounded Extend America to provide wireless voice and high-speed data services in five rural Midwestern states.

their fields. They attribute their success to volunteer experiences. There are many companies out there that would be eager to have a student work on the company Web site for 10 hours week. Or look to a nonprofit agency that could utilize your services in planning an event or contacting donors. The ideal place to look for a volunteer position may be in a smaller company that does not typically hire for paid positions. Do you have classroom projects on your resume? Think of all the time and energy you devoted on your own or with a team project for a class. These projects are ideal to include on your resume under a section: related projects. Describe the purpose or goal of the project, what actions you took to complete it and the results

from the work. Include enough information on your resume about the project so the person reading it gains a true understanding of the work you did. Are you involved? Join a student organization. Recruiters like to see wellrounded students with good grades, work experience and involvement. Find a student organization that you can join, attend the meetings and in turn learn more about that particular field. Different student organizations provide different opportunities and there are over 200 different student groups to choose from. Look for one that aligns with your interests. If you are new to the organization or your class schedule does not allow you to be in a leadership role, that is OK. Attend the meetings and get involved as your schedule allows. Easy ways to get involved can include helping to plan a meeting or designing flyers to promote the group. You don’t have to do something big to make an impact.

Computer skills are an area that can really set you apart from others. I’m sure you know how to use Microsoft Word and Excel, possibly PowerPoint as well. I would encourage you to take a class or one day seminar and learn a new computer program. Additional technical skills will help add to your skill set and showcase your versatility. As an example, I work with a lot of marketing students who are interested in the creative side of marketing. Learning Microsoft Publisher and Adobe Photoshop, InDesign or Illustrator can be an extremely

beneficial skill set to add to your repertoire. An easy way to determine a new computer skill is to search jobs you are interested in and find out what is required for computer skills. These ideas I’ve shared can help you add more impact to your resume and help you stand apart in a positive way on a piece of paper. Now you just have to determine who will get your resume. Wouldn’t it be great if you felt so confident you would be willing to hand your resume to the employer of your dreams right now?

Program boasts broken national records, NCAA-title winners, Olympian alumni By Shane Lucas and Jake Calhoun Daily Staff Writers In 1916, Charles Mayser introduced wrestling to the campus of Iowa State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. Much like the crops that were cultivated at the small landgrant school, Mayser grew his program from the ground up. He would eventually pass his team on to other coaches, who would oversee the team’s transformation from a sprout to a giant beanstalk. Almost a century later the school has gone through a lot of change, but the tradition of wrestling remains as strong as ever. Last Sunday, the Cyclones defeated the Arizona State Sun Devils, 30–10, to win the program’s 1,000th all-time dual meet, becoming the first collegiate wrestling program in the nation to do so. “Winning national championships is on the top of the list for Iowa State University,” said first-year coach Kevin Jackson. “But winning 1,000 matches is huge, it’s gigantic.” Jackson, the seventh coach in the program’s history, has rejoined the team that he helped to a national championship as a wrestler. As a collegiate athlete, Jackson transferred to Iowa State from Louisiana State for his senior year after the Tigers’ ath-

letic department dropped wrestling. After earning All-American honors in each of his three years at LSU, he was named senior captain of the Cyclone wrestling team that went on to win Iowa State’s last NCAA championship in 1987. “It means so much to me being an [alumnus] and a coach,” Jackson said. “Being the coach to coach that team to the 1,000th win is very exciting to me and very humbling to me to know that I was a part of not only being an athlete in helping get some of those wins, but now, as a coach, continuing to help get those wins for the Cyclones, and it just shows that we’ve had success for a long time.” Jackson compiled a record of 30–3–1 en route to placing second at the NCAA tournament and earning All-American honors for the fourth year of his collegiate wrestling career. Jackson took over for collegiate wrestling legend Cael Sanderson, who left Iowa State to take the head coaching job at Penn State after the 2008–’09 season. The mark Sanderson left on Iowa State and collegiate wrestling at large is one that will most likely never be touched. Sanderson went an unprecedented 159–0 in his collegiate career and took the reins as coach of the Cyclones in 2006. Sanderson also won the gold medal at the 2004 Olympics

in Athens. Combining his wins as a wrestler with his wins as a coach, Sanderson is accountable for nearly 20 percent of Iowa State’s victories. Sanderson was unavailable for comment. Chris Bono, one of Jackson’s assistant coaches, left his head coaching job at Tennessee-Chattanooga — where he was named Southern Conference Coach of the Year three times — to return to his alma mater to coach under Jackson for the Cyclones. During his career spanning from 1994–’97, Bono qualified for the NCAA tournament four times while wrestling in the cardinal-and-gold singlet, with fifth- and second-place finishes during his sophomore and senior seasons. He currently ranks fifth all-time in matches won with 130 victories, earning All-American honors three times in his four years at Iowa State. However, his shining moment came during his junior season, when he won the 1996 NCAA championship at 150 pounds. “Winning my NCAA title is something I will never forget,” Bono said. “Being able to put on an Iowa State singlet and going out there and winning a title for the school and for my coaches and for my teammates is something I’ll never forget.” Sanderson and Bono were just

two of the many standout wrestlers to compete under legendary coach Bobby Douglas, who coached Iowa State to 198 dual victories from 1992– ’06. “I don’t think people really know the historical importance of winning 1,000 matches for Iowa State,” Douglas said. “The fact that they are the first ones to the 1,000 mark will certainly send out a signal to the rest of the American wrestling community about the tradition here at Iowa State, and it should be a tremendous recruiting tool and building tool for the future.” In his 14 years at Iowa State, Douglas earned Coach of the Year honors three times and coached wrestlers who won 10 individual NCAA championships and earned All-American honors 52 times. He also coached the sport’s only undefeated wrestler and four-time national champion, Sanderson, from 1999–’02. Douglas, however, accredits the program’s success to Dr. Harold Nichols for building the foundation for Cyclone wrestling that has now sprouted into a national powerhouse year after year. “Dr. Harold Nichols is obviously the person that started this great tradition,” Douglas said.

Bobcats block Cyclones’ wins Ohio goaltending hinders ISU play By David Merrill Daily Staff Writer Riding on a wave of momentum, the Cyclones skated into Athens, Ohio, this past weekend and hit a roadblock as they fell victim to a sweep at the hands of the Bobcats, 1–0 and 4–2. The Ohio goaltender played for Team USA in the most recent World University Games and presented trouble for the Cyclones. “I think, in every game we play, the goaltenders pick up their play against us and Ohio is no different,” said coach Al Murdoch. Although goaltenders seem to pick up their play against the Cyclones, the team feels as if it needs to get past that and keep moving forward. “We ran into a hot goalie,” said forward Brad Krueger. “We’ve got to stop using that as an excuse and

stop having moral victories so we can come out on top on the scoreboard more often than we have been.” The sweep moved the Cyclones’ record to 3–9 on the road this season. Despite this, Murdoch feels as if the team is still making steps forward. “When it comes down to the end of the season, we’d rather be in the position of outshooting a team 47–24 and losing during the season and then winning in tournament play as opposed to winning that season game in a close one and then have that team come back and beat us in a close one,” Murdoch said. While getting swept would put most team’s momentum at a much slower pace, it only fuels the Cyclones’ fire more as their next road trip will be at the ACHA Nationals next month. “If anything, it just makes us want to work harder,” said defenseman Brady Irwin. “We all know this past weekend was disappointing, so we know we have to work that much harder in practice. We’re coming into the homestretch of the season here, so we’ve got to look forward and learn from our mistakes.”

The Cyclones’ road trips this season have included visits to Illinois, Ohio, Missouri and an exhibition series at the University of Manitoba. These are some of the more hostile environments in the nation and the Cyclones feel as if they have put in good effort and overall played well on those trips. Burying the puck, especially on the power play, is something that

Iowa State has been lacking in recent weeks. “We just have to get more shots from inside the house,” Irwin said. “We need to get traffic in front of the net and capitalize on the power play chances. I think our power play is something that isn’t as sharp as we need it to be on the road and that’s what’s been killing us these past couple weekends.”

Rough start ends in second By Kelsey Jacobs Daily Correspondent The ISU gymnastics team faced several challenges Friday during and after the quad-meet at Pittsburgh. The team finished second to Pittsburgh 195.175195.125, and topped Rutgers (189.300) and SUNY-Brockport (188.350). The team started out with 48.550 on floor exercise, a lowerthan-normal score compared to last week’s season-high 49.175. The floor is usually the easiest rotation to register a strong score. “We started off the first routine with a fall, so we kind of had a rough start,” said senior Ceilia Maccani. “The rest of the lineup, it wasn’t that it wasn’t good, but

it wasn’t what we’d been practicing, so we had to play catch-up the entire meet.” The Cyclones (4–4) improved during the next rotation on vault with a season-high 49.000. Senior Jody McKellar was hurt during this rotation and was out for the rest of the meet. McKellar, who competes in the all-around, said she landed with her heels first. “She kicked out early and was trying to make a correction,” Maccani said. “She landed short and jarred her ankle.” After the vault, sophomore Celine Paulus stepped in for McKellar on uneven bars, where the team tallied a 48.525, which was also slightly lower than usual. Senior Anna Robey took over for McKellar on beam, where

the team finished with a strong 49.050. After a weak start on the floor and losing McKellar on the vault, the Cyclones had to deal with situations out of the ordinary. “We had two really good events,” Maccani said. “Vault and beam were very good, but bars and floor weren’t our normal, so we had some good and some bad.” After her injury on the vault, McKellar said she would not be competing in the all-around at the next meet. “[My ankle] is still pretty swollen and bruised,” McKellar said Sunday. “I’ll probably be doing bars, and, hopefully, I’ll be back for the Iowa meet.” Following the meet, the Cy-


clones spent the night on their bus. They were unable to reach their hotel until 7:30 a.m. Saturday due to the massive snowstorm on the East Coast. The team was supposed to fly out of Pittsburgh on Saturday but was trapped in Pennsylvania until Sunday night due to the weather. Even with the delay, the team will be able to have three practices before the next meet. “Usually we have Tuesday off and practice Sunday, Monday and Wednesday, and then travel Thursday,” McKellar said. “So now we will just practice Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.” The Cyclones will be away again Friday, when they head to Oklahoma to face the Sooners.

Brewers to honor Selig

from PAGE 8 Taking over for Hugo Otopalik, who coached the Cyclones for 28 years, Nichols accounted for nearly half of the Cyclones’ dual victories, compiling a record of 456–75–11 in his 32-year tenure at Iowa State. He also coached the Cyclones to six of the program’s eight national titles. He was considered a pioneer in breaking racial boundaries in the sport of wrestling, mentoring and coaching numerous groups of racial minorities. Douglas was taken under Nichols’ wing when he was hired as an assistant coach at Iowa State in his first collegiate coaching position before beginning his own career as a head coach. “Dr. Nichols took [the program] to heights that very few people could take it,” Douglas said. “I think it’s a credit to Iowa State and it reflects diversity of the athletic program, along with a tradition of diversity of the university and its athletic program. Diversity is a very important factor in recruiting, and I think that this will certainly let America and the wrestling community know about the accomplishments of Iowa State.” Nichols passed away in 1997 at the age of 78 in Ames. Despite Nichols’ passing, Iowa State continues to be a

leader in bringing diversity to the sport of wrestling at the collegiate level. “One of the things that is so important here is that the role that Iowa State University has played in its leadership role in diversity has had a tremendous impact on educating minorities, such as myself, in giving them a fair chance, not only in the athletic field but in the administration and in the coaching ranks,” Douglas said. “Iowa State leads the nation in diversity. It’s a landmark performance, and I think that [the 1,000th victory] will have a tremendous impact in the future of American wrestling program

and the Iowa State wrestling program.” Names like Dan Gable, Chris Taylor, Ben Peterson, Glen Brand and Nate Carr, along with their Olympic medals, further reinforce the winning history of Iowa State wrestling. While those names serve as a reminder of the past, they also carry on into the future with every wrestler to put on the cardinal-andgold singlet. With eight national championships, 14 conference championships and over a dozen Olympians, it is safe to assume that Iowa State will be a mainstay of collegiate wrestling as long as the sport is around.

commissioner in 1992 and took the job full-time six years later, turning control of the team over to his daughter, Wendy Selig-Prieb. The Selig family sold the team to a group headed by Mark Attanasio in 2005. “The Brewers and Miller Park are in this city because of the commissioner’s vision and

dedicated efforts,” Attanasio said Monday. Selig’s foundation donated statues of Hank Aaron and Robin Yount that were unveiled when Miller Park opened in 2001. Selig’s statue, which will be more than 7 feet tall, will be built by the same designer, Brian Maughan.

Revenue increase revives Twins MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins have been spending their way out of that smallbudget image, mirroring the imminent increase in revenue from their new ballpark with a big spike in player salary commitments. Lead owner Jim Pohlad said it’s a sustainable development. So even if the Twins sign Joe Mauer to a mammoth contract extension, they’re not afraid it would cost too much to keep a contending-caliber core of players around the American League MVP. “I think Target Field puts us in better position to make sure that we have a competitive

team from year to year,” Pohlad said Monday. “Names will come and names will go, but overall the objective is always to have the best team on the field.” The Pohlad family has consistently followed a model of keeping the annual player payroll pegged to 50 percent of team revenue, though in rebuilding years it’s fallen well below that. At the Metrodome, there wasn’t as much money coming in. This year, though, the payroll will rise by roughly $30 million to a team record above $95 million.

Students seek probation for athletic department

Women wrestlers can sue UC Davis By Paul Elias Associated Press Writer

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A student board has recommended placing the University of New Mexico athletic department on probation and a small cut to the $1.5 million in student fees it receives each year. UNM Graduate and Professional Student Association President Lissa Knudsen says the probation and $33,000 cut in cash support was a signal that the association board has concerns about the department. Saturday’s action is the latest fallout from a September altercation between football coach Mike Locksley and a former assistant coach and the handling of the incident. Recommendations will be reviewed by UNM’s president.

filed by three female wrestlers after the school essentially eliminated their sport by making them compete against males of the same weight after the 2000– ’01 academic year. The court turned aside the school’s argument that it had cut significantly from its men’s programs at the same time, ruling that the so-called Title IX law requires institutions receiving federal funding to show they are

SAN FRANCISCO — An appeals court said Monday it appears that the University of California, Davis violated federal law meant to promote gender equity in college athletics when it eliminated its women’s wrestling program.

men and women. Since then, many female students have sued high schools, colleges and amateur athletic conferences alleging violations of the law. “We continue to find problems throughout the country finding equal opportunity in sports,” said Noreen Farrell, a lawyer with Equal Rights Advocates who represented the wrestlers. In 2007, UC Davis settled a lawsuit for $725,000 by fired women’s wrestling coach Michael Burch, who claimed the university had retaliated against him for supporting the women’s lawsuit. Last year, UC Davis settled another Title IX lawsuit by agreeing to within 10 years bring women’s participation in athletics to within 1.5 percent of its total female student body, which stood at 56 percent in the 2007-2008 academic year. UC Davis’s Drown said the school has achieved a 3 percent ration since the settlement.

actively trying to expand women’s athletic opportunities. In doing so, the appeals court also removed a legal technicality that a lower court imposed on female athletes requiring them to formally notify university officials when they believe a gender-equity violation has occurred before filing a lawsuit. UC Davis lawyer Steve Drown said the ruling on the notification was expected, but that the school intended to fight the lawsuit’s major allegations of discrimination. Drown said the appeals court didn’t have all the evidence, such as the school’s recent efforts to comply with Title IX and that it intended to contest the lawsuit in the trial court. “We believe we have fully complied with Title IX and that there is no discrimination,” Drown said. Title IX was passed in 1972 and signed by President Richard Nixon, requiring schools to offer equal athletic opportunities to

Patrick makes racing debut at Daytona DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Danica Patrick will make her NASCAR debut this weekend at Daytona International Speedway. The IndyCar star will drive the No. 7 Chevrolet for JR Motorsports in Saturday’s secondtier Nationwide Series race. The decision announced Monday to race at Daytona was made after team officials dissected her stock-car racing debut in the ARCA race at Daytona on Saturday. The team had left the option to race up to Patrick, who wanted to assess her first race before deciding whether to enter one of the most prestigious Nationwide races of the season. Patrick overcame a midrace spin to finish sixth. “Racing in the Nationwide Series race was my goal during this entire two-month preparation process, but we wanted to make sure it was the right thing to do,” Patrick said in a statement. “The ARCA race was a blast, and I’m not ready for my first Daytona Speedweeks to end just yet. I want more racing.” Patrick had been hesitant to make her debut at Daytona because of the top talent that race attracts. Sprint Cup drivers have won nine of the last 10 Nationwide races here, and the lone exception was Martin Truex Jr., who won in 2005 in JR Motorsports car. Patrick will be joined in the field by Dale Earnhardt Jr., her car owner. He has five wins and 10 top 10 finishes in 17 Nationwide races at Daytona. Earnhardt will be driving JRM’s flagship No. 88, while Patrick will be in the car she will drive in 13 previously announced races. Her schedule after Daytona includes the Feb. 20 race at California and the Feb. 27 race at Las Vegas. “I think Danica proved to everyone that she can compete in stock cars at a high level, and right now seat time is extremely important,” said Kelley Earnhardt, Earnhardt’s sister and the general manager and a part owner of JRM. “She has worked extremely hard during the past two months for this opportunity. Her dedication and work ethic is infectious.” JR Motorsports acquired the points from CJM Racing to ensure Patrick a spot in the field. CJM Racing finished 15th in the owner standings last season, but has suspended operations.

Economy fails to slow industry Editor’s note: Writer Ben Sloan gives an inside perspective on the upcoming Chicago Auto Show. Ben’s uncle, Dave Sloan, is the show’s general manager. By Ben Sloan Daily Correspondent The largest auto show in North America and the third largest show in the world is headed to Chicago next week, close enough for some ISU students to change weekend plans and make the commute to the show. Vehicles on display will range from the most exotic and advanced to the practical and mundane. Thirty-four vehicles will make their production debuts, meaning these cars will be on sale this year. Of course, like all auto shows, you can sit in cars and discover the features and feel of most automobiles. Even with the economy down, exotic carmakers such as Lamborghini, Maserati, Bentley and a newcomer, Fisker, will be at the show in force. Make sure to bring your camera, as these cars are so rare this might be your only chance to see such a car. J.J. Grinvalds, senior in graphic design and avid show attendee, recommended researching the cars to see before since the event is so large. For the eco-friendly, there will be more than 45 alternative fuel vehicles, which are either powered by ethanol or electricity. There will also be three concept vehicles from Hyundai, Toyota and Volvo that, according to the official news release, are said to display cutting edge automotive technology. Vehicles will not be the only things on display; many interactive exhibits will illustrate just how these new car technologies work and might improve our daily commutes.

Displayed at the first Chicago Auto Show was the 1901 Motorette by the George N. Pierce Co. of Buffalo, N.Y. The De Dion Bouton 1-cylinder, water-cooled engine produced three horsepower and was positioned just forward of the rear axle. Weighing 600 pounds, the vehicle had tiller steering.

There will also be two racing games in which visitors can participate. The first is by Ford and features a miniature track racing game. The second is an interactive driving game in which drivers control the video game through realistic controls. Many exhibitors this year will be from the aftermarket industry, not only showing off their products but also displaying concept vehicles that feature some of the wildest and most tricked out features on the asphalt today, according to the release. Some of these products will include massive chrome wheels, custom paint schemes and parts to maximize the performance of a vehicle. Visitors will also have the opportunity to vote for the best vehicle in the show, and the possibil-

ity to see Chicago Blackhawks players Cam Barker and Ben Eager as well as Chicago Bears players Robbie Gould and Hunter Hillenmeyer along with Benny the Bull from the Chicago Bulls. The auto show begins Friday and runs until Feb. 21 at McCormick Place. Tickets cost $11 per person for all-day access, 10 a.m.–10 p.m. Grinvalds recommended that “to get the most out of the show, you should probably get a hotel around Chicago.” The official hotel of the auto show is the Chicago Sheraton, which features a special auto show rate of $115 per night. Grinvalds further suggested that “researching parking areas,” otherwise you will pay a steep price or park too far away from the show.


Environmental Protection Agency allows biodiesel, ethanol in standards By Ben Sloan Daily Correspondent New federal legislation passed last week will allow both biodiesel and ethanol to be included in the Environmental Protection Agency’s new carbon emission standards, which could renew some interest in the fuels. These new standards could restart the industry, allowing it to complete further research and find more efficient means of production. One of these research facilities is the National Science Foundation’s Engineering Research Center for Biorenewable Chemicals, located at Iowa State. “The center’s focus is to replace the chemicals in diesel and everything else crude oil is used for,” said Brent Shanks, the center’s director and a professor of chemical and biological engineering. Shanks said the field of chemical engineering grew

from the petroleum industry, trying to find catalysts that convert hydrocarbons into fuel. Biological engineering focused on using enzymes or microbiological cells to create fuel. The center brings both fields together, to Shanks hopefully stream and accelerate research, into biodiesel creation. Biodiesel is in fact not far from mass-produced fuel — it is available today and usually combined with regular diesel fuel. These first-generation fuels are from oils such as soybean or waste oils from the food industry, Shanks said. One of the problems with first-generation biofuels is that they use the same resources as food production. This creates a problem of where to use the crops and could cause an increase in food prices. In the future, if these fuels were heavily relied on it would put immense strain on the agriculture industry, Shanks said.

The center’s research, though, is now focused toward second-generation fuels. The difference between first- and second-generation biodiesel is first-generation fuels are derived from the seed of the plant where the most energy is stored. Second-generation fuels look to obtain fuel from the lower energy content of the rest of the plant, he said. Shanks further explained that one of the goals of second-generation fuels is for the majority of it to be derived from waste products. Also, these fuels need to fit into current infrastructure of fuel distribution because modification of the system would put huge costs on the changeover. These costs could greatly reduce the interest in the biofuels. The research going on at the center will take 10 years from beginning to end to get to market. The current research will hopefully be close to market within the next four to five years. Shanks also said that it will be very important for the center’s partner companies to further the research forward.

Brake Problems

No word from Toyota about auto recall

Since 1987



By Kelly Olsen AP Business Writer TOKYO — A week after brake problems surfaced with its Prius, Toyota still has yet to say whether it will recall the popular hybrid — and analysts

say further delays could be devastating to the automaker’s already damaged reputation. A recall would cover as many as 300,000 cars for this model year and would mean more public embarrassment for Toyota.

But the alternative could be a further loss of confidence in a global market it fought for decades to dominate. “Listening to management now, I think they still think there isn’t a real problem with the Prius,” Christopher Richter,

auto analyst at CLSA Asia Pacific Markets, said Monday. “But at this point you don’t resist,” he added. “Because right now any Toyota vehicle that is perceived to have a problem — you just say, ‘We fix it.’ That’s how you win back the trust.”

Faces in the crowd : Have you heard about GSB’s plans with Varsity Theater?

from PAGE 1

“One person would be writing a section of the proposal and one person would be getting quotes on projectors,” Ringgenberg said. “Some weeks we’d have five meetings. There are weeks that I spend more time on this than schoolwork.” Along the way, they’ve come to fully appreciate the impact the theater could have on Campustown, above and beyond that of providing entertainment. “You’re getting people into Campustown for a reason other than drinking,” Ringgenberg said. “There’s this cultural aspect, when you give students something to care about. People do things over in Campustown that they would never do on campus. They know that [campus] is a place to be taken care of. Campustown, right now, doesn’t have that culture.” The pair also believes the theater could help to bring Campustown’s business culture back to life. “It, obviously, would increase foot traffic in the area,” Danielson said. “I see it as a step toward rejuvenation.” In order for the theater to come to fruition, however, students need to voice their opinions. “This project relies on the student body support,” Ringgenberg said. “It’s not going to materialize if people don’t stand up and want it to happen. We need everyone to feel a stake in this project.” If GSB passes a bill to fund the proposal, the task force knows that its job isn’t complete, but Ringgenberg said they are excited to move on to the next step. “If the senate votes yes on Wednesday, our Never work is far from done. We’re just getting started,” Ringgenberg said. “We’re ready to put seats and screens in the place, and not Almost just be writing never things down on paper.”
