Suspect linked to robbery at Ames Subway A man suspected of being involved in a high-speed chase Monday with West Des Moines Police has been linked to the robbery of an Ames Subway. West Des Moines Police involved in a vehicle pursuit northbound on I-35 with a suspect who had allegedly robbed a restaurant in West Des Moines, according to a news release. The individual was taken into custody and identified as Gary Mumford of McCallsburg. As a result of a follow up investigation into the Subway robbery Saturday at 3218 Orion Drive, Ames Police investigators linked Mumford to the incident. In addition to the charge received for the West Des Moines robbery, Mumford has been charged with first-degree robbery, a class-B felony, and he is being held at the Polk County Jail. —Daily Staff

Fighting for their rights
Two high schoolers battle principal, honored with award By Frances.Myers iowastatedaily.com
First Amendment rights aren’t something Jaclyn Gutierrez and Lori Schafer will stand to have violated. The two high school juniors from Colorado are the 2011 recipients of the Champion of the First Amendment Award for ISU First Amendment Day. Gutierrez and Schafer, students Overland High School in Aurora, Colo., first struggled with violation of the First Amendment in January when their principal Leon Lundie instituted prior review on the school newspaper, The
Scout. The newspaper published an opinion article about racial stereotypes placed on black girls within the high school. “The guy who wrote it wrote about how some black girls are seen as loud and obnoxious, and why they see themselves this way,” said Gutierrez, opinion editor of The Scout. “He said in the article that he believed it was because the girls haven’t grown into their true personalities yet and they act out to get attention. Mr. Lundie claimed that he had received a complaint saying that this was inappropriate and they were offended. The thing is, the kid who wrote it is African American.” “It is legally pretty clear under Colorado law that just because somebody might have a problem with something written, it doesn’t make it unprotected speech,” said
However, the girls got then information from Phillips’ mother and obtained his death certificate from her stating that the cause of death was, in fact, from the blood clot. “He still denied it, but later he dropped the cause of death point because he knew we wouldn’t give up on it,” Schafer said. “Then he said that the story was not balanced and that there weren’t two sides to it. I just asked him, ‘How can there be two sides to a death?’” “He also questioned a sentence I had in there about how the school did not call the kid’s mom,” Schafer said. “I offered to take the sentence out, but he was like, ‘No, no, that’s fine. You don’t need to do that.’” But Lundie wouldn’t let the point go. “Lundie told us that the school did call the mother and they had it
Students battle with beverages
By Stephanie.Luhring iowastatedaily.com The senior class of 2011 voted to improve the outdoor seating area at the Hub for their senior class gift. Since the first gift, a flag pole on Central Campus with a boulder marker engraved “Class of 1876,” the senior class gift is an annual tradition at Iowa State. Class gifts of the past included tangible objects such as the Victory Bell in front of Jack Trice Stadium, the Forker Building tennis courts and intangible gifts such as scholarships. The senior class gift is chosen from a selection of projects to benefit Iowa State, said Sarah Johnson, program manager of the ISU Foundation. Facilities Planning and Management presented several projects to the Senior Class Council and the ISU Foundation to choose the three potential senior class gifts. The winning senior class gift will create more seating space outside the Hub and renovate the existing outdoor seating. The inside seating was recently renovated and the goal for the senior class gift was to provide permanent benches and tables consistent with the other seating areas throughout campus. The projected total cost of this senior class gift is $19,000. “We generally aim to raise $20,000,” Johnson said.
Frank LoMonte, executive director of the Student Press Law Center. “The fact that something might be controversial or offensive to some people is not enough to remove it from the protection of the law.” Lundie stated from that point he would be instituting prior review on the issues before publication. Conflict ignited again in March between the newspaper and Lundie when Schafer wrote a memorial story about the death of a student, Leibert Phillips. The article stated Phillips died when a blood clot traveled to his lungs. The clot was a result of a fractured ankle that Phillips sustained during a home wrestling match. Lundie read over the article before publication and claimed the cause of death was inaccurate.

The clock ticked from 10 minutes to zero. The barista behind the counter made the two drinks as fast as possible while the judges waited at a table nearby, listening to the clanking and whipped topping sprays of an original creation being perfected. Two beverages and the 10-minute time slot later, the first creation, one for taste and one for show, was presented to the judges just as the aromas and sounds of automatic shots being pulled by the espresso machines lingered behind the cafe walls. “So, tell me what inspired you to make this ... what’s in it ... how’d you get the idea?” the judges asked as they took their first sips. The second annual Barista Competition was held Wednesday at the Gerdin
Business Cafe. Hosted by ISU Dining with judges from Caribou Coffee and the Roasterie, which supplies coffee to the campus cafes. Twelve cafe employees submitted original recipes and were selected for the competition but only 11 would be competing, said Dan Fincham, ISU Dining supervisor of five campus cafes. Participants were encouraged to use ingredients and syrups on hand so that ISU Dining had the potential to put the drinks on menus by fall. Unlike last year, the schedule displayed various different drinks from “Cookie Monster Mocha” to “Mint Chocolate Chip Mocha” and “Cake Batter Mocha.” Paul Wedemeyer, senior in management information systems, participated for his second time and was inspired by chocolate whipped topping

Egyptian film shines light on sexual harassment A film lifting the lid on sexual harassment on the streets of Egypt is gaining plaudits around the world. “Cairo 678” tells the story of three fictional women from different backgrounds as they search for justice from daily sexual harassment. One of them is sexually harassed by a group of men after a football match, another insists on taking her harasser to court despite pressure to drop her case and the third responds by stabbing harassers in the groin with the pin from her head scarf. Several aspects of the film were drawn from real-life incidents, said the director, Egyptian Mohamed Diab. He said one of the film’s actresses suffered real gang sexual harassment while the scenes were being shot. A survey in 2008 by the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights claimed 98 percent of foreign women and 83 percent of Egyptian women in the country had been sexually harassed.

Harry Potter conjures success for theme park
Officers initiated a drug-related investigation. (reported at 9:12 a.m.) A vehicle that left the scene collided with a car owned by Michelle Richers. The incident occurred sometime since March 31. (reported at 5:25 p.m.)
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’s opening in June inside the Islands of Adventure theme park helped boost overall paid admissions to Universal’s Orlando parks by 20 percent in 2010 over 2009, according to financial documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. It took five years to make author J.K. Rowling’s fictional world a reality, according to Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative. “It’s an entire world, shops, restaurants and attractions, that all speak to this wonderful body of fiction.” The Harry Potter franchise includes seven books that have sold more than 400 million copies worldwide and seven films that have grossed $5.5 billion worldwide, with the final installment yet to be released. With the help of the film series’ production designer Stuart Craig and art director Alan Gilmore, Universal Orlando wanted to create the next generation of theme parks, paying close attention to detail and using cutting-edge technology for three action-packed rides. The tangible playground begins at the archway into Hogsmeade Village, a celebrated photo spot. Designers took a greatest-hits approach to the park, creating a replica of the Hogwarts Express, Honeydukes sweet shop, Zonko’s joke shop, Ollivanders, the Three Broomsticks, Hog’s Head pub, Filch’s Emporium of Confiscated Goods gift shop, and of course Hogwarts castle.
Facebook now lets you ‘unfriend’ from anywhere Anxious to reject some of your digital friends while on the go? Facebook’s update to its iPhone app, released Monday, makes this easier by adding a new feature that lets people “unfriend” each other. Previously, Facebook only allowed users to cull their friend lists from the Web, meaning most people did this task from home instead of from phones. When Facebook announced this update on its “Facebook for the iPhone” Facebook page, more than 4,500 people indicated they “liked” the news. “Amazing update. Now I can unfriend!!!” one user said on iTunes, in a review under the heading “yes yay woohoo.” While bloggers have picked out the “unfriend” feature as the one that’s most fun to talk about, and make fun of, most commenters on Facebook’s page on Tuesday were discussing other features of the updated app.

Celebrate ‘freedom for the thought you hate the most’
Editor’s note: In celebration of First Amendment Day, the front page of today’s Iowa State Daily is blank. This is to represent what life in the United States might be like without the freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment. For U.S. citizens, things like political debate, religious discussion and governmental criticism are commonplace and, often, taken for granted. Take today’s opinion section, for just one example: debates surrounding issues such as race and religion abound. In many other countries, a culture of censorship prevents citizens from engaging in the rights we make use of every day. The Daily recognizes the importance of the First Amendment and encourages the ISU community to celebrate its guaranteed freedoms of religion, press, petition, speech and assembly.
Earlier this week, I participated in a discussion about the First Amendment to the Constitution with a group of international students. Most of these students were from China; a few hailed from Korea and Malaysia. Things like speech and the press are regulated very differently in these countries, compared to in the U.S. It was refreshing to examine the First Amendment from the perspectives of other cultures. The part of the discussion that struck me the most was a conversation about the recent Snyder v. Phelps U.S. Supreme
Court ruling, which upholds the controversial Westboro Baptist Church’s right to picket at military funerals. The ruling held, in an 8-1 decision, that “The First Amendment protects those who stage a peaceful protest on a matter of public concern near the funeral of a military service member from tort liability,” according to the SCOTUSblog. In other words, content outweighs context. The fact that the group protests near funerals is overshadowed by the fact that the content of its speech and signs relates to public issues. After learning about the 71-member group headed by Fred Phelps, especially its beliefs that “God hates fags,” that “Barack Obama is the Antichrist” and that “America deserved 9/11,” several students asked why the U.S. doesn’t implement laws to prevent the Westboro Baptist Church from broadcasting its outrageously offensive views. One student asked if Americans feel like the government isn’t doing enough, by not stopping Westboro
Baptist in its tracks. My answer? The government is behaving exactly as it should. Make no mistake, I am thoroughly disgusted by the Westboro Baptist Church, and if I found out tomorrow that they would never again inflict their hateful views on a family in mourning, I would celebrate. But it’s not the U.S. government’s power to stop them. If we draw a line to stop the Westboro Baptist Church from exercising its First Amendment rights simply because its doing so offends most sensible Americans, then what’s to stop us from shifting that line in the future when we decide that, for instance, the Tea Party’s behavior is offensive to the majority? What if it’s determined that LGBT organizations, and not Westboro Baptist types, are offensive? These rights must exist for even the most offensive and outrageous people, so they may remain protected for ordinary folks like you and me. And because these rights are granted to U.S. citizens, we

If you disagree with this editorial — published thanks to freedom of the press — write a letter to the editor. It’s your right. If you disagree with their views about God, choose not to subscribe to their religion. It’s your right. If you disagree with their protests, gather with others and outnumber them with a peaceful protest. It’s your right. And if your government fails to uphold its end of the deal, petition it for a redress of grievances. It’s your right.
Thursday is First Amendment Day at Iowa State and throughout the entire state of Iowa. Please, join us on Central Campus between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for the Feast on the First, or throughout the day and evening for any of the lectures and activities we have planned. Take, at the very least, a moment to reflect on what the First Amendment means in your life. And please, take a moment to remember that, in order to celebrate your own freedoms, you must protect, in the words of Larry Flynt, “freedom for the thought you hate the most.” Jessica Opoien, Editor in Chief, Iowa State Daily
Further your religious understanding
By Claire.Vriezen iowastatedaily.com
Promoting one point of view limits positive discussion of the issue
s of late, there have been several articles in the Iowa State Daily regarding various topics of religion. One article dealt with religion and the freedom of speech, while others covered aspects of Christianity and the reactions to the American Atheist Convention that will be in Des Moines this month. While all are, perhaps, can be useful for starting dialogues about religion among students, similar columns or letters that only promote one point of view may inhibit honest discourse. A recent letter made some rather large generalizations about atheists being anti-Christian, a problem I can only guess comes from lack of exposure to a wide variety of atheists. Like any philosophical outlook, there are differing opinions among atheists. Some people oppose religion as a whole — referred to as “anti-theists” — while others adopt a “live and let live” attitude. To make a blanket statement about “antiChristian” atheists is patently unfair to the population of atheists that are content to quietly dissent in the privacy of their own homes and minds. One of the best ways to demolish stereotypes is through visibility. Much like LGBT groups that encourage openness in sexual orientation to break down preconceptions, various atheist communities have started their own campaigns to promote atheist awareness. Perhaps the most well known among atheists is the OUT Campaign. This movement seeks to let the public know that nonbelievers are among them and to break down the negative stereotypes the public seems to have. Their website proclaims, “We can help others understand that atheists come in all shapes, sizes, colors and personalities. We are labourers and professionals. We are mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers and grandparents. We are human ... and we are good friends and good citizens.” Much like the OUT Campaign, the Secular Student Alliance holds an annual event: National Ask An Atheist Day. This event is designed to provide an opportunity for nonbelievers to “defeat stereotypes about atheism and encourage courteous dialogue.” National Ask An Atheist Day is right around the corner, in fact. April 13, you may see classmates and fellow students walking around campus wearing white stickers reading: “Atheist: Ask Away!” But this problem of invisibility and “closeted” religious views extends beyond atheists. Iowa State has a large Christian presence on campus, but what of other faiths? Of the 25 student groups registered under the “Religious/ Spiritual” category, it seems that two are

related to spiritual concepts and meditation, one is for nonbelievers, one is a group of Tibetan Buddhists, and one represents the ISU Interfaith Council. The remaining 20 groups stem from a variety of Christian denominations. A Buddhist friend of mine has said on several occasions that if you aren’t a Christian at Iowa State, it’s as good as being an atheist. It’s unfortunate that he sees it this way, and it’s unfortunate that the groups available on campus seem so limited for those that don’t associate with Christianity. I think much of this “in-group/out-group” mentality — real or accidental — among the ISU campus as a whole comes from the lack of visibility of different religions other than
Christianity. It is rare to see a Muslim, Jewish, Hindu or Buddhist group in a free speech zone or at a booth in the Memorial Union. Perhaps instead of having a national Ask an Atheist Day, it would be more effective to simply have a day that urges students to talk with those in a different religion than their own. To reduce the ISU campus to Christians versus atheists neglects to account for the actual diversity in religious views. April 10, there will be a panel of representatives from Christian, atheist, and Muslim groups running a Q&A at the Memorial Union. This event is meant to allow students to ask questions of differing views in their community. I, for one, plan to attend, because I am very
curious about the questions that the Muslim representative will receive, and the responses that he or she will give — a curiosity that stems from a lack of interaction with the Muslim faith. Most, if not all, non-Christians I know are perfectly willing to engage in civil conversation, provided you do the same in return. A good religious discussion shouldn’t turn into a finger pointing game. Accusations and heated words tend to result in both sides coming away frustrated and annoyed. Questions about religion shouldn’t come from a closed mind, but a healthy curiosity and desire to understand. Surely, we all have that?

Arizona legislation proves Words, even simple racism is still a problem ones, possess power Senate Bill 1070. This one act of Arizona legislation is sufficient enough evidence to repudiate Robert Bender’s article, “Racism is dead, let’s move on,” in its entirety. Part b of article 8 in the bill states that “for any lawful contact made by a law enforcement official or agency of this state or a country, city, town or other political subdivision of this state where reasonable suspicion exists that the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States, a reasonable attempt shall be made, when practicable, to determine the immigration status of the person.” Translation: Law enforcement should ask for one’s documentation of citizenship if given reasonable cause. The bill itself is not as explicitly racist as its implementation. It has caused Arizona law enforcement to stop suspicious looking persons, those who have Mexican features and request their documentation. In short, this is allowing the authorities to single out people based on their skin color and assumed race. Giving the police this power is essentially legalizing stereotyping, an integral

component of racism. Mr. Bender fails to even acknowledge this piece of legislation and its racist aspects. He instead focuses on racism, or lack thereof, directed toward African Americans. He states that “Racism was doomed the moment racial equality reached Hollywood and professional athletics.” From this one can assume that after Jackie Robinson’s debut April 15, 1947, fans across the country welcomed African American athletes with open arms. This is obviously untrue as Robinson received a myriad of death threats during his career and the Negro League remained intact for another 11 years after his departure. Another assertion made by Bender to the death of racism was Obama’s presidency. The first African American president is elected and poof, racism no longer exists. In addition, there is no more poverty, world hunger or obesity. Isn’t this new utopia grand? These ignorant and naïve allegations can ostensibly be
attributed to the white privilege. White people are tired of hearing about racism because it doesn’t directly affect them. They’ve never had to deal with being called a hurtful epithet and neither did their grandparents. They will never be the exemplar of the acts of their disdainful generations before them. To declare that racism is dead and insist we move on is utterly ludicrous and delusional. Moving on from racism entails its gradual departure from the mindset and suggests that it should no longer be addressed. Racism has been an unfortunate but perpetual facet of American and world history. Moving on and in essence forgetting it ever occurred would be detrimental to the erudition and advancement of mankind. The battle against racism has not been won and it is not so lucid a subject that it can ever be declared over. How can you so easily ask us to move on? Hitler killed 6 million Jews and the Holocaust is over, move on. Jesus was publicly crucified 2,000 years ago, move on. These statements are not said so nonchalantly, and neither should yours, Mr. Bender.
Rebuttal: Atheists believe in freedom of, from religion Today I stumbled upon a letter in the Daily regarding the stance of American atheists as anti-Christian. It was a fair, well-taken view but I would like the chance to offer a rebuttal. I speak for all atheists when I say that your belief in Christianity affects me as much as an animist’s belief in wind-spirits affects you or me: not at all. Atheists have no problem with your beliefs. We only have problems when your beliefs spill over into everyone else’s lives. American atheists have seen too many funerals protested and too many human rights denied in the name of Christianity. Atheists in America realize that most religious people are not the nuts from Westboro Baptist Church. But we also realize that the main threat to religious freedom in America is Christianity. When Congressman Ron Paul incorrectly declared that our secular founding fathers “envisioned a robustly Christian yet religiously tolerant America, with churches serving as vital institutions that would eclipse the state in importance,” everyone in America should feel threatened. In short, we focus on Christianity in America because of America’s vastly Christian overtones in politics and society. We focus on Christianity in America because Muslims,

It may be a simple hello or a caring note. Maybe it’s a joke to get someone through the day or maybe it’s a heart-to-heart that changes a friendship. Any way it is taken, there is power behind even the simplest words. The ability to use both written and spoken word for change is inspiring. I believe in the power of words, and although it has advantages, there are heavy consequences if the word has been used wrong. Since I was around 5 years old, I found that I loved to make art and write letters to my friends. They never had to reciprocate the action; I just liked to see their face after I gave it to them. That feeling of word power to show that you cared has followed me throughout life. Still, I must write hand-written thank-you notes after someone has done something kind for me; even if most of my generation prefers using the Internet. It’s always been a sign that I care. Another trait my generation has gained is texting. While texting may seem nice in theory, the ability to abuse the spoken word is always looming.
Hindus and animists should feel the same freedoms to practice their religion as those down at St. Thomas Aquinas or Memorial Lutheran Church. The letter I am responding to astutely requested atheists to, “Go to Tehran. That is in Iran for your information. Go there, and write ‘Keep Allah out of our schools, since we keep knowledge out of your mosques.’” Assuming that Iran and the United States have the same religious freedom is absurd. However, this brings up a great point for why atheists should focus on Christianity in America. The reason we do not go to Iran to hold conventions is because that is precisely what we are trying to prevent in America: a society so intolerant of other religions that the minority cannot voice their beliefs. I do not believe in Christianity as much as I believe in Islam, Shintoism, the Flying Spaghetti Monster or any other religion. I do believe that all humans, regardless of religion should have the same voice and rights as anyone else.

president and black sports stars does not mean that racism still isn’t alive and well. Saying this is just like saying that because we had openly gay politicians like Annise Parker and Harvey Milk that homophobia must be dead. However, we know that this is not true because we
always hear the stories about the victims of gay bashing and how some gay youth decided to take their own life instead of living with their close-minded tormentors. Just because you may not hear about racism a lot does not mean that it does not exist. For you to basically say that racism is over and that people should just get over it is a slap in the face to individuals who have to live with racism everyday.
Maggie Martin, student at West Des Moines Valley High School
Just the other day my friend and I were in a fight, and we were texting about it. I couldn’t help but realize that the texts I sent to her were all misconceived. I was attempting to stop the fight, yet she thought I was being sarcastic, so the whole situation was blown out of proportion. She told some of her friends this and that about me, I told my friends this and that about her, and it has made our friendship awkward. If only we had used the power of spoken word so that our inflection would have been realized, and she would have known how sincere I truly was. As journalists, it is our responsibility to present the spoken word to inform and engage others. It is also our responsibility to protect the spoken word by not slandering others, being truthful in fact checking and writing unbiased pieces that layout the facts. Yet ultimately we leave the decision up to the reader for their point of view. That’s the real power of words. It could be a note; it could be a mean text or a simple greeting. No matter which way it’s shaped, there is power behind it to change the world. I believe that my generation has the power to change the world for good with their words, but with the evil ability still lurking, words might do more bad things than good.

‘Racism is dead’ letter presents unsubstantiated accusations Your article titled “Racism is dead, let’s move on,” came off ignorant and insensitive. Although unsubstantiated accusations may help to keep racism alive, it is not the only factor fueling racism. Plain and simple some people are just racists.

Cyclones to host Gophers
Iowa State plans to use home field advantage against familiar team By Darrin.Cline iowastatedaily.com
Home field has been relatively friendly to the ISU softball team thus far this season. Standing at 8-3 playing in Ames, the team will try to use the friendly atmosphere as they play host to the University of Minnesota. The matchup will mark the first time the Gophers (19-16, 1-3 Big Ten) have played in Ames during Stacy Gemeinhardt-Cesler’s tenure with the Cyclones (17-13, 1-3 Big 12). “It’s just so nice playing at home because our fans are great and we have a lot of parents in town this week because we have so many games this week and that’s really nice for the players,” Gemeinhardt-Cesler said. While it is the Gophers’ first visit, the two teams are very familiar with each other. It will be the 70th meeting between the schools, in a series where Minnesota has a 39-30 advantage.
Last season, the Cyclones made the trip to the Minneapolis for a doubleheader. The teams split separate 6-5 decisions, with the Cyclone loss coming in an extra-inning thriller. “I think that they battle and we need to make sure that we play like we did [Tuesday] in order to have a good chance of winning,” Gemeinhardt-Cesler said. Iowa State’s recent demolition of rival Northern Iowa, 11-3, has set the stage for the squad to have a repeat performance, and pitcher Rachel Zabriskie stands just seven strikeouts away from cracking into the top 10 in Big 12 history. The troublesome offense for the Cyclones appears to be rectified following the UNI game. A combined four-home-run performance by Tori Torrescano and Erica Miller puts each at seven longballs on the season. The cooperative effort of the two power hitters and the dangerously fast lead off hitter Heidi Kidwell makes the top of the order an intimidating presence. Iowa State may be picking up steam, but it hosts a team searching for an identity. The Gophers are 1-4 in their last five games, including a disappointing series against Ohio State. The Buckeyes, 9-20 on the
season, blasted Minnesota 10-0 and rallied from a 5-1 deficit to make the sweep, 7-5. “I think they play a lot of competitive games and so do we so it will be a lot of fun,” Gemeinhardt-Cesler said. Thursday’s doubleheader will begin at 2 p.m. at the Southwest Athletic Complex.

Coyotes’ offense presents new challenges
Club prepares to shake off mistakes, refocus efforts By Nate.Ryan iowastatedaily.com
The ISU club baseball team is moving on from a mistake-filled weekend against Minnesota State-Mankato to begin preparation for the University of South Dakota. The Cyclones (3-5, 1-2 Mid-America) host the Coyotes (9-1, 3-0 Mid-America) on Saturday and Sunday. The Coyotes are powered by their offense, and haven’t been held under five runs in a game yet this season. They are led by captain Trevor Freudenthal who holds a .342 batting average on the year. Freudenthal has also hit four home runs and has 15 runs batted in. “They have a bunch of good hitters,” said ISU player-coach Tyler Strub. “Last year they could score at any time. I think they hit two to three home runs in one game last year.” Errors have caused problems in recent games and Cap Timm Field has seen recent field work. The Cyclones are hoping things will turn around against South Dakota. “We’re just taking a lot of infield and getting more used to the field,” Strub said. Senior shortstop Matt Coffey said improving play this weekend goes beyond just preparing physically. “You can only dive for so many balls and

catch them,” Coffey said. “As long as you’re making the right mental choices, that’s the best you can do.” This will be Coffey’s first time facing the Coyotes, and he said that will give him the advantage. “That will actually make me focus more,” Coffey said.” “With a familiar opponent, you’ll get almost too comfortable with them.” Coffey said it was frustrating to strand runners on base last weekend, and the reason for it was a lack of the lineup being consistent. “It’s really a team effort,” Coffey said. “The top of the lineup and the bottom half of the lineup has to work together.” Player-coach Jeff Peterson remembers dropping a few games in South Dakota last year and doesn’t want to have a repeat in Ames this

season. “They’re loud and they’re rowdy,” Peterson said. “They get in your face and get in your head. It was tough last year, but I think the tables will turn this year with it being on our home field and I hope to get a big crowd here.”
First pitch on Saturday is at noon with the second game beginning at 2 p.m. The two teams will square off at 11 a.m. Sunday before the finale at 1 p.m. All the games will be played at Cap Timm Field.

Breakthroughs anticipated for meet Runners hope to improve times in Arizona classic
Sun Angel Track Classic

Where: Tempe, Ariz.
The ISU track and field team will be headed to Tempe, Ariz., to compete in the Sun Angel Track Classic Thursday through Saturday. The team will be sending the majority of its mid-distance runners to the meet along with a few distance runners and the field event competitors. Mid-distance coach Kristy Popp has high hopes for many of her athletes, including Elphas Sang, who took first place in the men’s 800-meter run in 1:52.72 minutes at the Missouri Relays last weekend. “I think he’s ready to have a breakthrough race here any meet now,” Popp said. “He’s been stuck on that 1:50 mark all of the indoor season so we are hoping to see him do good

things.” Senior Lucy Kennedy has been overcoming a physical setback with an Achilles tendon issue this past week but she has been doing well and will be ready to compete this weekend. Distance runner Kersten Thorgaard had a successful meet last weekend as well taking first in the 800-meter and second in the 1,500-meter. “Kersten has been a little stuck around that 2:10 mark so we’re trying to get her under that,” Popp said. “We’ve had a tough week of training so she’s tired now but hopefully she’ll bounce back in time for the weekend.”

Competing with nothing to lose in Texas
Cyclones travel to take on Texas Tech, Baylor
The ISU tennis team will have its hands full this weekend against two very talented teams. The Cyclones — 10-10, 1-5 Big 12 — hit the road this Friday and Sunday to play Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas, and No. 9 Baylor in Waco, Texas. Last weekend, the Red Raiders (14-4, 4-1) defeated Oklahoma State by a score of 4-3 and followed that up with an upset over No. 23 Texas, also by a score of 4-3. ISU senior Liza Wischer said that this isn’t going to be an issue. “I don’t really look at the stats, or the wins and losses, because Baylor just lost to Kansas State, who we almost beat,” Wischer said. “So right now, the wins and losses between the Big 12 doesn’t mean anything to me because I think we can go out there on any given day and we can beat anyone. And I think that goes within the whole Big 12.” Last season, the Red Raiders defeated the Cyclones by a score of 5-2 in Ames. The Baylor Bears (15-3, 5-1) are also coming off of a victory over No. 23 Texas. They defeated the Longhorns 5-2. Baylor defeated the Cyclones last year by a score of 7-0 in Waco.
Where: Lubbock, Texas
Where: Waco, Texas
When: 4 p.m. Friday
When: 1 p.m. Sunday
The Bears have a perfect 15-0 record against the Cyclones and have only lost eight points through the entire series. Coach Armando Espinosa said that this weekend will be for rebuilding after the two tough losses to Kansas and Kansas State last Friday and Sunday. The Cyclones have been practicing outdoors at Forker this week and he thinks that they will benefit from that. “I’m sure it’s going to be hotter, so we’re going to try to adapt to that,” Espinosa said. “Thursday is an all day travel-
ing day, so we won’t even be able to hit until the day of the match.” The main advantage Espinosa thinks his team has is being a team with nothing to lose. “If we play like we have nothing to lose then we’ll be okay,” Espinosa said. “The minute we start putting pressure on ourselves and think about things, then that’ll make things a little bit tougher.” The Cyclones take on Texas Tech at 4 p.m. Friday in Lubbock, and Baylor at 1 p.m. Sunday in Waco.

Painters Anonymous encourages talent Club offers students opportunity to advance skills, create art with other students who share passion of painting Painting isn’t just for the pros anymore. Painters Anonymous is a student organization that encourages amateur painters to “advance talents to further themselves,” said Etienne Blanc, president of the club and senior in integrated studio arts. “[The club] gives me a chance to get together with others as passionate about painting as I am and create art,” said Meghan Flynn, vice president of the club and senior in integrated studio arts.

The next day Lundie called in The Scout’s adviser Laura Sudik and informed her she was to be removed from her advising duties. He went to the class and said the publication would no longer be publishing. “I came into this situation the day [Sudik] was relieved of advising,” said Carrie Faust, president of the Colorado High School Press Association. “She called me crying saying she was no longer the newspaper’s adviser.” It all happened so fast, Schafer said. “Within less than 24 hours we had no adviser, our newspaper was being censored, and we weren’t even allowed to print anymore,” Schafer said. “And to make matters worse, by the time we got to talk to the trainers that day, they told us they weren’t allowed to say anything to us.” Phillips’ mother had no complaints about the article. “There wasn’t even a lawsuit that Phillips’ mother had against the school,” Gutierrez said. “She said that she doesn’t believe in suing anybody and that she just doesn’t want this to happen to someone else’s child.”

They can “combine relationships and working to form a good balance,” Blanc said. Club member and sophomore in culinary science Andrew Pugh said the environment allows for a
The Phillips article and opinion piece tackling stereotypes weren’t the only instances Lundie objected to in the publication. He also took issue to an article revealing how Overland High has the lowest graduation rates as well as the lowest scoring rates in the district; an article Lundie contributed to. “Lundie came to us and told us we should do that story,” Gutierrez said, referring to the graduation rates story. “He even gave us the statistics, and we quoted him nine times in the article. But when the story came out, he said we had gotten the facts all wrong.” Lundie also took issue with a piece that Schafer had written about coping with the suicide of her brother five years ago. “He told me that my story about my brother’s suicide was too graphic and inappropriate for high school students,” Schafer said. “It was a revision of an English paper she had written,” said Jane Schafer, Lori’s mother. “She was merely describing how she felt. I thought it was very pertinent because there are very few students nowadays who don’t know of someone who has committed suicide.” Determined to fight their case, the girls invited reporters to a news conference March 24 with the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado and Carrie Faust of the Colorado High School Press Association. “People in Colorado and especially students are very attune to their legal rights,” LoMonte said. “They know when something is not right and they will do whatever it takes

The girls’ story has remained the same. That would certainly tell me that they are telling the truth.” But Lundie changed his mind one more time Monday, and called the girls in for an unexpected meeting. “I was nervous because I was wondering what was going to happen,” Schafer said. “We’ve kept our stories straight the whole time but I didn’t know what he would say this time.” “I was actually kinda mad,” Gutierrez said. “He likes catching people off guard and I felt like that’s what he was trying to do to us.” “It was frustrating because I was walking down the hall to the conference room and I was thinking about all the times he has changed his story. I didn’t know what he was going to say this time so I called my mom and told her about the meeting.” Diane Gutierrez, Jaclyn’s mother, told her not to go in without calling Adam Goldstein, the lawyer from the Student Press Law Center.

at Iowa State,” Blanc said. It is this project which first got Cross interested in the club. “It struck my interest at the time so I joined to be a part of it,” Cross said. Experienced artists aren’t the only ones invited to join, Blanc said. “A lot of things in painting can be really frightening at first. This club gathers people who can provide help and those who need help,” Blanc said. Flynn also encourages interested individuals to seek new membership. “We are always open to new ideas and are looking for new projects. [Members] become part of our closeknit community right away.”
the year without prior review. He also maintained the whole situation was a misunderstanding and that Sudik would be reinstated as adviser of the newspaper for the rest of the year. Next year, they would reevaluate where things stood and go from there. But Lundie also said during the meeting that he was hoping to change the publication into an online-only publication, stating that every other school in the district ran their newspaper that way. Gutierrez and Schafer voiced their disapproval about this. “We found this was completely untrue,” Gutierrez said. “No other school in the district has an online newspaper. Theirs are all print.” “Lundie has been looking to make changes to mirror the journalism program at Colorado University,” Faust said. “The thing is, the journalism program at CU has been effectively killed due to the changes they’ve made there. So I don’t know what the future holds for these kids.” But Gutierrez and Schafer will continue to hold their ground, and that’s something LoMonte commemorates. “It is so rare to see high school students deal with the differential of power between school officials and students,” LoMonte said. “It can be very intimidating. But these are government paid officials and they are not infallible,” LoMonte said. “Our duty as citizens is to keep them honest to their legal obligations,” Lo Monte said.

when developing his recipe. Julia Lihs, sophomore in agriculture and life sciences education, was inspired by mint chocolate chip ice cream. Lihs said her drink isn’t green and has a weird tint to it. But it didn’t bother her. “But it’s not what’s on the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that matters,” she said. The judges scored on inspiration, creativity, taste, presentation and gave an overall rating, said Kristi Patel, ISU Dining assistant director. Most of the judges agreed that creativity was the biggest thing to consider. In addition to that, something else to consider was whether the creation was something new from what is featured on campus cafe menus. Tricia Buesing, senior in history, is a Bookends Cafe employee and the first place winner of the competition. Buesing’s “Grasshopper” creation was a mixture of green mint syrup and white chocolate sauce. “It was a very, very wellmade drink,” said Zach Althaus, head educator for the Roasterie. “It was a simple one.” Beusing’s winning drink received a potential spot on ISU Dining cafe menus and an iPod Nano.
posts and the brick paving north of the parking ramp at the Memorial Union. The third project was the West Campus Streetscape which would have improved the pedestrian safety and created a more attractive campus entry at the west entrance of Union Drive. The Hub outdoor seating project won the vote “by a landslide,” said Johnson. Approximately 63 percent of voters chose the Hub outdoor seating project, while approximately 27 percent of voters chose the West Campus Streetscape, and 9 percent of voters chose the Memorial Union landscape improvements. Holly Preston, senior in interdisciplinary studies, said she was unable to vote March 25, when voting closed. “I think the safety for pedestrians is more practical,”

This is VEISHEA and you are staying in your room all weekend. Get to see campus during the event. You are only at Iowa State for so long.
You’ve lived a little, but it’s nothing to brag about. Let’s change that this year.
Not a bad start. Not boring but nothing to get too excited about. It may be time to hit up those alternative acts, tournaments or classic VEISHEA categories.
You know your way around VEISHEA. You’ve definitely had your share of good times, but a few more points couldn’t hurt. Keep it up.
A well-weathered veteran. You know the ins and outs of the VEISHEA celebration and have stories to tell. Either that or you cheated.
You should have written this survey. Congratulations.

Baroque music group celebrates Chinese history By Vincent Geerts Ames247 writer Mid-December last year, baroque period music group ¡Sacabuche! toured Beijing. Their program, “Matteo Ricci: His Map and Music,” was received well at all of the major universities and performance arts centers they played — including the China National Center for Performing Arts. “That’s like playing the Kennedy Center here,” Linda Lieberman said. She was in part responsible for bringing the group to the Martha-Ellen Tye Recital Hall on Sunday. After discovering the program through her friend and artistic director for the group, she was excited to have the opportunity of inviting them to perform in Ames. The group is named after a predecessor of the modern trombone, the
sackbut. It is a central instrument in the group’s performance, along with other baroque period instruments like the cornetto, played by both faculty and students of Indiana University Jacob’s School of Music. The group has come a long way from their humble roots as a collegiate ensemble based from Indiana University Jacob’s School of Music Early Music Institute. ¡Sacabuche! artistic director and baroque trombonist Linda Pearse began the group only a few years before they received standing ovations during June 2010’s Berkley Early Music Festival. This Sunday, they will perform the same program which won international and critical acclaim. This multimedia performance celebrates the cultural exchange of 17th century Italian Jesuits and Chinese literati, inspired by the 400th anniversary of the death of

The program combines projected images of Ricci’s Europeanstyle map of the world presented to the Chinese emperor in 1608, Italian and Chinese music of the time played on classical instruments.
The fourth annual 80/35 summer music festival announced mashup artist Girl Talk will headline the Saturday lineup that also includes Ames band the Poison Control Center.
