Don Draper just got himself a new job. “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm has revealed that he is getting ready to go behind the camera and direct the season 5 premiere of the hit AMC series. “The wheels have officially been set in motion to make that happen,” he tells TVLine. Hamm was inspired to try his hand at helming the show after seeing co-star John Slattery direct an episode. “I watched Slattery do it--and he handled it with such grace and ability and ease--I figured if he can do it, s--, I can do it too,” he says. Production on the new season will get underway in August, but Hamm will return to work a few weeks earlier to get ready for his directing gig.

He got a second chance on the show this year, but his run for Ashley Hebert’s hand in marriage ended in a drunken stupor. The 35-year-old liquor distributor was the unfortunate star of Monday’s premiere, showing up at the manor inebriated. It only got worse from there, as McCormack got into it with Jeff Medolla, the suitor who wore a mask to the opening cocktail party. Eventually, McCormack passed out in the backyard, leading to his ejection from the show.

CyRide faces fuel budget crisis Rising costs leave company strapped By Ted.Sics CyRide could go as much as $55,000 over its fuel budget by the end of the fiscal year on June 30. Sheri Kyras, director of transit, said CyRide determines its fuel budget 12 months in advance, basing it on historical data and price projections. Fuel prices, however, are hard to predict, which is why CyRide now faces a financial shortfall. The next fiscal year will not see much improvement. “Next year we have eight months out of 12 under a fuel contract . . . . We will be paying an average of about $3.05 per gallon,” said Kyras. “The problem is that our budget for next year is $2.50 a gallon, so we know we [will be] significantly over in those eight months.” Depending on fuel prices during the following four months, CyRide

could overdraw its reserves by as much as $250,000. CyRide’s Transit Board reserves a portion of its total budget for addressing emergencies like the current deficit. This “closing balance” is normally 15% of the budget, but that number now hovers around 8%. Kyras said the board does not wish to draw any more money from this balance because members want to be able to address another emergencies if they arise. Thus, CyRide is looking elsewhere for the needed funds. Kyras said the board had a number of options for mitigating the effects of the shortfall. “We’re looking internally at the budget to see what we could do to try and reduce our expenses,” Kyras said. However, Kyras said inter-departmental cuts will not generate enough extra money to make up for the deficit. “Externally, the two places we have to look are to either increase our fares to generate more revenue, or to reduce our fares even more — which is to cut service,” Kyras said. “These are the two things that we’re asking

the public to help us figure out.” A third option involves dipping into CyRide’s trust fund, which comes from student fees and is maintained by the Government of the Student Body. “Students have about a million dollars in the bank, so they could draw down from that balance as opposed to increasing fares,” said Kyras. “The initial thought was not to increase [fares] because of this large balance,” said Kyras. CyRide’s recently purchased fleet of hybrid buses have thus far done little to reduce fuel costs. “[They are] brand new, and there are always bugs to work out when you get new technology,” said Kyras. “In mid-June the manufacturer of the transmissions will be in with a new programming fix that’s supposed to help increase [fuel efficiency].” “We’re hoping that within the next 30 to 60 days we’ll start seeing more improvement in the hybrid system,” Kyras said. The programming fix could save as much as $30,000 in fuel costs.

CyRide will be significantly over budget during the next fiscal year, said Director of Transit Sheri Kyras. File photo: Iowa State Daily

The majority of CyRide’s $8.2 million budget comes from the GSB. The rest comes from Iowa State University, the City of Ames and a number of different state and federal entities. A public meeting on the budget shortfall will be held at 5:30 p.m. on June 2 at CyRide’s headquarters on

Dean of Students

Somerville moves for family reasons Dean of Students D i o n e Somerville s a i d Thursday that “beSomerville ing closer to family” was her prime motive for accepting a position as vice president of student affairs at Pennsylvania’s Bloomsburg University. Somerville, who grew up in Michigan and spent much of her higher-education career in Ohio, called the environment at Bloomsbury “very inviting.” “I’ll continue to discover there, and begin to see what challenges and opportunities are there for me,” she said. The Bloomsburg website reports that Somerville will begin her new position in July.

The position has been held by an interim vice president since the death of Preston Herring, its previous holder. Bloomsburg has 10,091 enrolled students, according to its website. Somerville has been the dean of students at Iowa State since January 2007. Earlier this month, it was announced that Somerville was a finalist for the position of vice chancellor for student affairs at the University of WisconsinStevens Point. Vice President of Student Affairs Thomas Hill said Wednesday that he is happy for Somerville. “She’s moving from dean of students to vice president of student affairs,” Hill said. “That’s a great career move for her.” During her time at Iowa State, Somerville has reorganized her division and expanded the branches she su-

Education: Bachelor’s degree from Ohio Northern University Master’s degree from Bowling Green State University Doctorate from University of Pennsylvania Before Iowa State: Served as director of student affairs and services at Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine Served as director of student activities and assistant director of campus programming at Ursuline College Director of enrollment services and registrar at Lorain County Community College.

pervises, which include the Academic Success Center and the Multicultural Students Association. “We’ve done a lot of things that we can be very proud of,” Somerville said. “What helped provide the foundation for all of our accomplishments, really, was re-envisioning the Dean of Students office overall to make sure it was structured

to meet student needs.” Somerville pointed out a few of her office’s other accomplishments, such as its demystification of the judicial process with Judicial Services and its addition of a fulltime LGBT student services coordinator. “Our student assistance function is truly exemplary,” Somerville said.

Somerville came to Iowa State from Lorain County Community College in Elysia, Ohio, where she worked as director of Enrollment Services. She said the positive impression Iowa State gave her during a 2007 visit impelled her to accept a position with the university. “What really sold me on the institution was the student body,” Somerville said. “We have a great student body, and when I interviewed [at ISU], the level of engagement, their excitement, their pride in the institution — all of those things were so evident.” As Somerville departs, Iowa State will have to find a new dean of students. Hill is in charge of finding her replacement. He said the search for her successor is still in the planning stages. Hill explained that, when looking for a suitable candidate, he looks for someone

who understands and can relate to ISU students. He also said that due to the complexity of the position being filled, it may take a while to find Somerville’s replacement. “We will clearly be very conscious about not having things fall through the cracks in the interim period, between [the time when] Dione Somerville departs and the time we name a new dean,” Hill said. “That period is very critical. I understand that, and we will be very clear about having things not fall through the cracks during that period.” Somerville says she believes that her successor will be able to build on her accomplishments to improve services for ISU students. “[The Dean of Students office is] in a great place,” she said. “This office is knowledgeable and talented, and has not only the capability to do great things, but the passion as well.”

Event to urge women to run Workshop’s focus is on leadership, fundraising skills By Austin.Ballhagen Iowa has never elected a woman to serve in the U.S. Congress. Nor has the state ever elected a woman to serve as governor. But Ready to Run Iowa is a program that seeks to change that. Ready to Run Campaign Training for Women was originally a workshop developed at the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University in 1998. Iowa State’s Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics joined the Ready to Run National Training Network in 2007. The Ready to Run Iowa 2011 workshop will focus on developing fundraising, leadership and media skills, as well as provding tips for those running for or being appointed to public office.

op skills that can be applied to any field, be it politics or business. The next Ready to Run Iowa workshop will be held June 10 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Scheman Building.

Though Ready to Run is targeted at women, men are welcome to register. Registration costs $75 for those who register before June 3, and $100 for those who register after June 3. Students

who register early can be reimbursed $50 of the registration fee. Registration forms are available from the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics website.

Where: Scheman Building When: June 10 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.



Speakers will include Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds and former Lt. Gov. Sally Pederson. Ready to Run Iowa is designed for anyone interested in running for all levels of public office or getting more involved in politics. After each census, Iowa goes through a process of redistricting, in which congressional districts and state legislative districts are redrawn according to population shifts. Redistricting makes it easier to challenge incumbents, and also creates open districts

that have no incumbents. Therefore, the 2011 election will present new opportunities for women to run for office. Dianne Bystrom director of the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics, said Ready to Run Iowa is about more than politics. “The skills we teach are what women need to know,” said Bystrom. The director also said that the workshop helps to devel-

Ames ‘prepared’ for severe storms By Ben.Theobald

Emergency numbers

The city of Ames has a document-based disaster response plan that prepares it for virtually any type of disaster. “We are prepared for disasters that are manmade or natural,” said Susan Gwiasda, city of Ames public relations officer. The disaster plan created by the city of Ames is a foundation that officials build on to create their strategies. “For every situation, you have to customize how it works,” Gwiasda said. “We use this as our starting point and follow the guidelines it points.” Disasters that occurred in the past also inform current response plans. In the case of Joplin, Mo., Gwiasda suspects knowledge of past events wouldn’t have helped residents. “Joplin was a huge devastating event,” Gwiasda said. “Some of their experience in the past may have not have helped them prepare.” The EF-5 tornado that hit the town has killed approximately 142 people and destroyed many houses, leaving many homeless. According to the National Weather Service, EF-5 is the highest category for a tornado on the Enhanced Fujita damage scale. The tornado in Joplin had winds that reached speeds as high as 200 miles per hour. Since May 11, 1953, there have been 56 EF-5 tornadoes in the United States, four of which occurred this year. In the event of a disaster, the city of Ames can contact the state or federal government for assistance. “There is a system in place in a disaster response plan,” Gwiasda said. “It’s a coordinated effort in many agencies across the county and state and, if necessary, the federal government.”

Emergency services: 911 Mary Greeley Medical Center: 515-239-2011 National Weather Service Forcast Office: 1-877-633-6772

Keith Morgan, coordinator of emergency management for Story County, also plays a part in helping the city prepare for a disaster. “My position as the coordinator for Story County is to work from the individual jurisdiction,” Morgan said. “We try to work together and develop an overall capability with the county.” The first step in the disaster plan is minimizing any chance of hazardous damage. “We try to prevent and take actions area to minimize as much risk as possible,” Morgan said. The second step is preparing for the event. To do this, an emergency management team has to identify who is going to enact a plan. “In a case of a situation at a school, we would make a decision on where would be the safest place to move students in the school,” Morgan said. The next step in the process is responding. “My job is to be constantly watching the weather and work[ing] with the county dispenser and mak[ing] sure the sirens are activated and that they are aware of the weather situation,” Morgan said. The final step is recovering from the situation. “We clear debris and clean up,” Morgan said. “We try to re-establish as much of a normal life and activity as we can.”

Last storm touched down fall of 2005 By Ben.Theobald The last tornado to touch ground on the ISU campus was quite a surprise. The F1 tornado occurred Sept. 8, 2005 around noon. According to the Iowa State News Service, there had been no tornado watches or warnings in the hours leading up to the storm. An article in the Chicago Tribune reported that the tornado clocked winds of 83 miles per

hour and touched down for nearly half a mile. The storm uprooted trees and covered sidewalks and roads with torn-off tree branches. A light pole was blown over near the Gerdin Business Building and tents and portable toilets near Jack Trice Stadium blew into some vehicles, the Iowa State News Service reported. The service also stated that there were no reports of serious injuries, but one person was sent to Mary Greeley Medical Center for treatment and observation.

Storm hits home

Coach reacts to storm in hometown Joplin By Darrin.Cline

On the morning of May 22, Yancy McKnight was having a simple conversation with his father. McKight’s father had recently been released from a hospital following surgery and was headed home. Little did the McKnight family know that within the next 24 hours, home would become a very different place. Yancy McKinght, head strength and conditioning coach at Iowa State, was born and raised in Joplin, Mo. Many of McKnight’s family and friends reside in the tornadoravaged Missouri town, and are now left to pick up the pieces. McKnight took to coaching, thanks in large part to his childhood experience in Joplin. “I always thought I would get into coaching after playing in high school and college,” McKnight said. “My original aspirations were to coach high schoool football, and I thought ‘Why not my hometown? Why not Joplin?’” After playing collegiate football — first at Southwest Missouri State, then at Missouri Southern, in Joplin — McKnight found himself working in the strength and conditioning realm. He trained athletes at Oklahoma State, Louisiana Tech and Rice before joining Paul Rhoads’s staff at Iowa State. As McKnight moved across the Midwest, he still maintained connections with his beloved hometown. These steadfast connections made May 22 all the more challenging for him. McKnight said the tornado decimated phone lines and limited cell phone reception.

“ Yo u ’ r e trying to find these people and there’s no contact. It was a very stressful McKnight two or three days trying to reach everyone. We are very lucky as a family to have everyone alive.” While McKnight’s family survived, it did not escape the storm unscathed. His fatherin-law completely lost his house, but is already begining to rebuild it. Quick turnarounds like these have been made by many members of the community, as they take the few possessions they have left and work to revive Joplin. Before the tornado, Joplin was a bustling college community that McKnight compared to Ames. A town of roughly 50,000 residents, Joplin is the business center of southwest Missouri. “On the weekends, I compare it to Duff Aveune on a Sunday evening,” McKnight said. McKnight thinks the tornado’s path is one of its most astounding aspects. “What people don’t understand about the path of that storm is that it couldn’t have hit a more densely-populated area in that town,” McKnight said. “It basically went through the medical section and every thick residential area and then the business section. It couldn’t have been more destructive, in my opinion.” Despite having found their loved ones, the McKnights were still filled with worry and dismay. He may have been hours away from his kin, but the ISU coach found a new family on campus. The team mentality of the football program showed through for the Joplin victims. Without any pleading on his part, the donations from coaches and studentathletes began to overwhelm McKnight.

“Our players and coaches have brought in money and supplies and it’s turned into qutie a thing. It’s been unreal,” McKnight said. When the town of Parkersburg was ravaged by tornadoes in 2008, collegiate athletes from around Iowa were some of the first to help with the cleanup. McKnight and his fellow coaches discussed asking players to help in Joplin in a similar way. “We talked about it but we thought it may be just too overwhelming of a situation. We

thought donating the items we collected would be the best thing we could do for the Joplin community,” McKnight said. “If it was closer, no doubt our kids would find a way to make it happen.” McKnight said the residents of Joplin are desperate for the basic necessities we take for granted. Shampoos, diapers, lotion and other toiletries are in highest demand in the storm-shaken community. Memorial Day weekend gave McKnight and his family a chance to help their ravaged

community. With a trailer full of supplies and financial donations, the family traveled to Missouri to assist in the rebuilding efforts. McKnight may have the strength of one powerful individual, but Joplin has the strength of one powerful community. The blue-collar town built on the backs of coal miners will display the work ethic

that gave the community so much pride before. “Any community that has had to deal with this stuff is unthinkable. It’s obviously very devastating but I know from growing up there that that place will bounce back. And they will build it back and build it better. It’s going to be a long process but the people there can handle it,” McKnight said.

Words like “outrage”, “shocking” and “tragic” have become ubiquitous in daily headlines. Their use is a common method for attracting consumers and the billions of dollars in advertising revenue generated by their readership and viewership. The brevity of our daily news cycle breeds end-of-days fearmongering, the newest round of Kardashian butt implants and disgusting people riding the coattails of national tragedy to further personal agendas. Ringmaster Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Circus have once again found their way onto the national news, exploiting tragedy in what’s left of Joplin, Mo. In their latest comments, Phelps and his cronies celebrate the death toll in Joplin as proof that, as they say, “God Hates Fags.” Some folks are inclined to attribute the increase in severe weather to global warming. Some wearing foil hats babble on about 2012. However, 71 idiots from Topeka, Kan. insist it’s all because our society ‘tolerates the homosexual agenda.’ The very mention of Phelps and the WBC makes us hypocrites of the worst kind. We ask that our readers and our fellow journalists stop giving them the attention they so desperately clamor for. But in doing so, we only shine the spotlight on them more brightly. Irritants like Phelps are much like mosquito bites. They bother us only as long as we attend to them. Just as the sensation of a mosquito bite goes away once we stop itching it, the influence Phelps and his followers have will diminish as soon as we stop publicizing them.

Mourning a friend’s sacrifice I

By Gabriel.Stoffa

t never hurts as much until it’s someone you know. Staff Sgt. Joseph Hamski was killed Thursday in Afghanistan when his unit was attacked with an explosive device. Though all those serving in the armed forces know the risks they undertake, that knowledge makes it no less tragic when one is killed. There have been 1,595 U.S. military fatalities during Operation Enduring Freedom from 2001 to 2011, according to Though this is not near the number of lives lost in previous “wars”, this is the one I lost a friend in, and that finally makes this war all the more real. Joe was my friend as we were growing up in Ottumwa. We went to the same high school, had the same group of friends and even worked at the same movie theater for a time. He never quite settled into the average life, as most people would term it. Joe had too much going on in his head to work a nine-to-five job, so he joined the Air Force after briefly attending Iowa State. Joe would come back to visit often, always with a smile and to have drinks with

his buddies. Each time it was certain to be a grand and raucous celebration. He cared about his friends in a way that made you know he was someone you wanted protecting you and others on foreign or domestic soil. Joe cared about his friends as if they were his brothers and sisters. When a soldier dies, family and friends mourn, and this situation will be no different from that. But, for me and many of Joe’s other friends, it is the first time tragedy like this has really hit home. We all joked with Joe about the dangerous actions he undertook while enlisted; he had a certain gallows humor that was respectable rather than depressing. He would tell us with a smile about deadly situations as we took shots of Bacardi 151 with him. His stories had a humbling characteristic to them, both for Joe and for the imminent danger he would find himself in, and we all appreciated it. Now his story is over. He was married not long ago to Air Force Staff Sgt. Maria Christina Hamski. Joe’s love life had been another source of entertaining stories through the years, and now it is over. He can’t tell us any more of his stories, and we can’t pass the night away reminiscing and

bullshitting. It just isn’t right. He had so much more he could have done. Joe knew the risks of his profession. We all understood that something could happen to him, but we never wanted to believe it; no one ever wants to believe it could happen to someone close. It just hurts too much. To everyone who has never had to suffer the loss of a friend to tragedy, I hope you never do. To everyone who has, I feel for you. And for Joe’s friends and family, I wish we had all had more time with him. I wish we had gotten to say goodbye to Joe in old age as he complained about any of the farreaching topics he would so gladly bitch about over drinks with friends. He would have made a great crotchety old man; hell, he basically was one, just without the old age. But we can’t. Another brave life was lost. Another close friend fell before his time. Twenty-eight is far too young an age to die. Here’s to you Joe, you were the best of us. It’s a worse world without you, but you will never be forgotten for what you gave.

are important. Unilateral action may be very effective, but the goal of defending the United States does not merely require us to be militarily strong. National security demands that in the face of threats and the wake of our victories, we act in partnership with other countries. In a conflict between, say, the United States and China, as many parties as possible should be involved. This world is shared by India, Germany, France, Britain, Russia, and the Middle Eastern states, too. All these countries have an interest in the peaceful order established — or left unestablished — by conflict resolution. Edmund Burke, an Anglo-Irish statesman, is often paraphrased as saying that “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” While he is not known to have said exactly that, he did give this advice: “When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.” In confronting problems, we should collaborate with others instead of alienating potential allies by acting unilaterally. That is true even if none of those others could ever possibly match our own power.

resident Obama’s recent speech to a combined assembly of Lords and Commons during his recent visit to the United Kingdom, argued — as well it should have — that in foreign affairs, international cooperation is essential. He reminded us of the special, historical relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom, and of the challenges facing our world today. The most notable examples of AngloAmerican cooperation occurred during the two World Wars. At the time of the first war, Britain was undoubtedly the most powerful country in the world. The sun never set on the British Empire, and the red bits on our maps were numerous. By the time of the Second World War, the British nation had become decidedly weaker. The ravages of the First World War were fierce and, combined with economic downturn in the 1920s and 1930s, had contributed to fewer policing actions on its part. But its Empire remained vast. And because the British remained connected to large portions of the world, they retained an interest in international affairs. This is despite the fact that the United Kingdom, with its 68 million people, has the world’s 22nd-largest population and, with its nominal gross domestic product of some $2.247 trillion, the world’s sixth-largest economy. Today, it appears that the United States faces the same problem. Countries such as China and India produce huge amounts of products that we consume and depend on. Many American politicians seem fearful of the prospect of Chinese economic growth. These fears need not be realized. Economic wealth is not necessarily an indicator of power. Prestige is important, as is the feeling that, just because a country has accomplished greatly meaningful tasks in the past, it will continue to do so in the future. The records of United States and the United Kingdom should still inspire such a feeling. Both countries have rich histories of confronting problems head-on, making few complaints and mitigating dangerous situations. The United States, for all its indebtedness and deficit spending, surely does not need anyone’s help to best its enemies. Given its military strengths and capabilities, it could probably counter any threat. But it is important that we bring partners with us when we act on the international stage. Britain, Obama said, is one such partner. Allies

what to do in

What would be your biggest worry if a tornado hit Ames?

Allison Sapienza Senior Electrical Engineering “Where are the tornado safe spots? The only one I know of is the library.”

Ashley Holmes Junior Psychology “That there would be a tornado while I’m in the shower.”

Austin Creswell Senior Public service and administration “Red Cross having enough resources to respond with.”


Jesa Wolthuizen Junior Journalism and mass communications

“Many campus building have designated storm shelters. There are signs [white with green lettering] indicating where storm shelters are located. Information is also available on evacuation maps in these buildings [also posted at]. The best thing you could possibly do in the event of a tornado is find the lowest-lying area possible. This is ideal if a basement is available. Otherwise, find an interior windowless room — the smaller the area of the room, the better. Essentially, you want to put as many walls between you and the tornado as possible. Definitely avoid a one-story building because of the danger of roof damage. We encourage people to take personal responsibility for their own safety. They should be signed up for the campus alert system, and be aware of the possibility of severe weather through television stations and the Web. Also remember that the sirens are meant to be heard outdoors, so if you’re in certain campus buildings, you may not hear the sirens. This is another reason why it’s important to be signed up for an e-mail or text alert.”

“Destruction to our historical landmarks and the people’s safety.”

Q: How prepared is the greek community at ISU for a tornado? “Each chapter has a specific emergency procedure and a critical response plan that complies with national organizations. All greek chapters have basements for shelter in the event of a tornado. Tornado drills are performed regularly in the chapters. House directors or presidents usually lead the procedure. The chapters are also very well-connected with university resources in case of an emergency. “

ISU hall desk manual tornado policy

1. 2. 3. 4.

Leave student rooms and close room doors. Take shelter in a bathroom or interior hallway. Stay away from windows and glass. Avoid elevators, since electric power is likely to be cut off. If a tornado strikes without warning, take shelter under the nearest piece of furniture and wrap yourself with a blanket to prevent injury from flying glass.



Q: What’s the probability of an F-4 or an F-5 tornado occurring in Ames? There’s no reason why it can’t happen in Ames. I was out in Joplin [Mo.] this past week with my team and another meteorologist, and we talked about how it’s just a matter of time before an EF-5 or EF-4 tornado hits Ames. Yes, EF-5’s are definitely rare — there’s about one every year — so it will take some time before such a tornado hits Ames. Q: This tornado season has set some records in terms of number, frequency and intensity of tornadoes. Do you think this is unusual? Yes, it is unusual, but it’s related to natural changes that occur every year. It seems that this year, all the weather parameters have come together in such a way to facilitate the kind and number of tornadoes you see this season. This season, we’ve seen more tornado deaths, since there’s been a trend of hits in more populated areas. This has happened solely by chance. Big cities are usually harder to get hit by tornadoes because they take up smaller areas of land. But even though the probability is low, there’s nothing really stopping a tornado from striking a highly populated area like say, Chicago. If Chicago were hit, we can estimate about 10,000 deaths. We’ve seen that this season by chance — that they’ve hit the more populated areas. Q: What did you learn from the Joplin tornado? It was indescribable to see what an EF-5 tornado can do. We hope to learn some things that could help save lives in the future, such as changes in the way buildings are built. Q: If a tornado hit Ames, what kind of damage would we expect to see? I expect that there would be just as much damage in Ames as we saw in Joplin. In Joplin, the houses were smaller and closer together. I think fewer people would be killed in Ames because the houses are more spread out, but overall there’s be just as much destruction to the town. Q: Do you think rising temperatures or any factors linked with climate change have caused these occurrences? No, you can’t say that. All the experts agree that it’s extremely hard to link these occurrences to climate change. Maybe if we see this trend every year for the next 5 to 6 years, we’d be able to gather the data required to link it to climate change. If the Earth’s temperature rises significantly, this is just as likely to increase tornados as it is to decrease them.


“When residents hear the siren, It is better not to remain outdoors but take shelter inside. They are also advised not to use elevators. Residents are usually directed to go to the lowest and interior-most level of their residence hall to take shelter. Each residence hall is different, and community advisers are instructed to direct residents to an area that has been designated as safest during a severe storm. For example, residents of Friley Hall would be instructed to go down to the basement, known as the ‘dungeons.’ But for buildings that don’t have a basement, such as Eaton or Martin, residents would be directed to the lowest level laundry room or conference room. In Buchanan Hall, residents would need to evacuate to the first floor interior hallway and recreation room area. It is important to take note of the City of Ames siren at 10 a.m. on the Wednesday at the beginning of every month.”


+ + + + + + + +

Staying prepared for tornadoes requires practice and vigilance Have a tornado plan in place, and practice it at least once a year. Be caught off-guard, and just “wing it.” If in a house with a basement, get in the basement and take shelter under something sturdy, like a heavy table or a workbench, or cover yourself with a mattress or sleeping bag. Stand or sit next to a window or something heavy that may fall on you, like a refrigerator, piano, bookcase, etc. If in a house with no basement, a dorm, or an apartment, go to the lowest floor to a small center room, like a bathroom or closet, under a stairwell, or in an interior hallway with no windows. A bathtub only offers partial protection-you should also cover yourself with something padded, like a mattress or blankets. Crouch as low as possible to the floor, and cover your head with your hands. If in a office building, hospital, skyscraper, or some other tall building, go to an enclosed room with no windows at the center of the building on the lowest floor. Use the elevator during a tornado. If power is lost, you may become trapped. If in a mobile home, evacuate immediately. If your community has a tornado shelter, go there. If not, find a sturdy permanent building. As a last resort, go to an open area outside and lay facedown, protecting your head with your arms. Stay in an unstable building. If in a car or truck, get out of your car and seek shelter in a sturdy shelter. If you are not near a sturdy building, run to low ground away from cars, and lay face-down, protecting your head with your arms. Seek shelter under bridges. They offer little protection from flying debris. After the tornado, keep your family together. Stay away from power lines, broken glass, nails, and other dangerous objects. Remain calm as you wait for more information and instructions from emergency crews or local officials. Janavi Kumar, Daily staff writer

Ultimate Frisbee club finishes 10th By Zach.Gourley Iowa State’s women’s ultimate Frisbee club “Woman Scorned” finished the 2010-2011 season ranked 10th in the country after making a surprise run in the USA Ultimate College Championships in Boulder, Colo. Of the 20 teams that entered the tournament, Woman Scorned was seeded No. 17. Initially, the 20 teams were split into four different pools of five teams, with the top three teams from each pool advancing to bracket play. “We kind of had nothing to lose because we weren’t expected to do well,” said Kevin Seiler, one of the teams’ three coaches. “We did get a favorable draw because in our pool, we had three teams that we had already played earlier in the year so we were at least familiar with them. It’s not always easy to see a team for the first time and develop strategies on the fly.” The team from Iowa State was projected to finish last in its five-team pool, but started off the tournament with a 15-10 upset of the Tufts, a team from Medford, Mass. Woman Scorned then faced the University of California-Santa Barbara, the pool’s top-ranked team. After a hard-fought defensive battle, UCSB came out with a 13-11 victory. “After seeing them play Santa Barbara so close, I started to realize

that we could make a run pretty deep into the tournament,” Seiler said. “Coming in, I didn’t know if they’d be able to do as well as they did. They exceeded my expectations.” After the tough loss to UCSB on Friday, Woman Scorned came back Saturday and reeled off two wins in a row against teams from the University of Michigan and Northwestern. The 14-11 victory over Northwestern put the team at 3-1 after pool play and insured it a spot in the 12-team bracket. The team’s first opponent in bracket play was a familiar one: a team from the University of Iowa. “They’re kind of a rival of ours because they’re in the same section. They’re in the same region and we go to a lot of the same tournaments all throughout the year,” Seiler said. “I guess it’s safe to say that we’re friendly rivals, because there’s not a lot of bad blood like there is between the men’s teams.” Woman Scorned would go on to lose to Iowa in the pre-quarters, 15-11. The team finished the tournament by splitting their final two games, finishing 10th. Seiler identified two seniors, defensive specialist Jasmine Draper and the team’s best offensive threat, Jessy Erickson, as being key to the team’s success. Freshman Cami Nelson also played a big role in her first year on the team, garnering Freshman of the Year honors for the Central Region.

Track team heads west By Zach.Gourley ISU women’s track and field runner Dani Stack is on her way to the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field National Championships for the first time after a second-place finish in the 10,000-meter run at the West Regional in Eugene, Ore. Stack finished in a time of 33:28.36, right ahead of teammate Betsy Saina, who finished third and also qualified for Nationals. “I thought we worked really well together. Coach [Ihmels] just told us that he didn’t really care what time we ran, as long as we moved on,” Stack said. “We wanted to take it easy in the first 5K and stay with the group, but once it got to the last seven to 10 laps, we wanted to start making it hard for everyone and make people kind of drop off of the pack.” Stack and Saina employed the same strategy in the qualifying race on Friday that brought them first and second-place finishes two

weeks ago in the 5,000-meter run at the Big 12 outdoor track and field championships. “We just worked really well together and got the field rolling and ended up separating the pack a lot,” Stack said of her running with Saina. “We just wanted to really start moving and make other people work more for their places.” The NCAA West Regional was held at historic Hayward Field, which has been home to multiple U.S. Track and Field Olympic Trials and NCAA Championships. “It was the coolest experience,” Stack said of the 92-year-old track. “I was kind of nervous beforehand, but it was a great atmosphere and the crowd was really supportive. It’s a great track and it’s kind of just a runners dream to run at Hayward Field. To be able to finally run here was just something I could check off my bucket list.” Stack’s said her intensified training, which involves running between 75 and 80 miles every week, and an

increased confidence in her abilities is what has elevated her performance so far beyond that of last year, when she did not qualify to run at the West Regional. “My season is just going really well and it just makes it even better that I get to make it to Nationals with Betsy,” Stack said. “The fact that me and my teammate are going there and working together, I think we can do some pretty spectacular things. It just means so much to me because all my hard work is finally starting to show and pay off.” Three other Cyclones will be joining Stack and Saina at the NCAA Championships from June 8 to June 11 in Des Moines. Three-time AllAmerican Hillary Bor qualified to run in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a second-place finish in Eugene. Other qualifiers for Nationals were freshman Edward Kemboi with a season-best time of 1:47.25 in the 800-meter run and Junior Kianna Elahi, clocking a 57.92 in the 400-meter hurdles.

Eight Cyclones honored

By Zach.Gourley Phil Steele’s 2011 College Football Preview has tabbed ISU offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele as a pre-season first-team All-American and a first-team All-Big 12 player. Osemele, a 6-6, 354-pound red-shirt senior and co-captain of the Cyclones’ 2011 squad, has started 30 straight games as an anchor of Paul Rhoads’ offensive line. Osemele has also been projected by Fox Sports’ Peter Shrager and multiple other NFL Draft prognosticators to be a first-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft. Wes Bunting of the National Football Post had the following scouting report on Osemele’s abilities: “Osemele is going to be a prospect that scouts and NFL teams love. He possesses great size and good athletic ability. His potential is through the roof, which is what could facilitate a major jump up draft boards. He is a powerful player with the ability to

pass protect and run block. His lower half allows him to anchor after contact and avoid being pushed into the pocket. Osemele has quick enough feet to reach the edge against most rushers. However, he doesn’t have the elite foot speed, which will likely mean a move to right tackle or guard. As a run blocker, Osemele possesses the ideal size, strength, and explosion. There are not many players with his combination of size and athletic ability.” Cyclone cornerback Leonard Johnson was named to the second-team preseason All-Big 12 team, the same honors he garnered last year. The 5 foot-10-inch, 196-pound Johnson has five career interceptions to go with 18 pass break-ups and 175 career tackles. Joining Johnson on the second-team All-Big 12 squad is Cyclone linebacker Jake Knott, who was also on the second-team All-Big 12 last season. The Waukee native averaged 10.8 tackles per game last season, the second highest

amount in the Big 12 conference. Knott also snagged four interceptions, caused four fumbles and made 130 tackles last season. A.J. Klein, one of Knott’s fellow Cyclone linebackers, was placed on the third-team All-Big 12 squad after averaging 9.25 tackles per game, the fifth most of any player in the Big 12. Two other Cyclones were also named to the third-team All-Big 12 unit: punter Kirby Van Der Kamp and punt returner Josh Lentz. Van Der Kamp, a West Des Moines native, averaged 45.2 yards per punt last season, second-best in school history for a single season. Defensive lineman Stephen Ruempolhamer was named to the fourth team All-Big 12 unit after making 33 tackles and six sacks last season. Cyclone speedster Shontrelle Johnson was also placed on the fourth-team AllBig 12 unit as a kick returner after averaging 23.4 yards per return on 25 attempts in 2010.

Toss a Healthy Meal in Minutes

If fast food is one of your time-saving solutions for a quick meal, consider tossing a meal together, full of health benefits, starting with prepackaged salads. Bagged salad kits are a great starting point to build a complete meal in minutes. They are a time saving convenience that includes pre-washed lettuce and greens with additional ingredients, many times including vegetables. Simply add lean chopped meat, beans or nuts and additional fruits and vegetables. Pre-packaged salads offer more variety with new blends of leafy greens such as romaine, arugula and baby spinach. These dark green leafy greens tend to be higher in nutrients such as vitamins A and K and lutein.

Chicken and Asparagus Caesar Salad - serves 4 All you need: • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces • 1 10 oz Dole™ Light Caesar Salad Kit • 2 cups cooked, diced chicken breast All you do: 1. Steam asparagus 4-6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and rinse. 2. Toss salad with chicken, asparagus and dressing included in salad kit. 3. Top with croutons before serving.

Coach of three 2011 All-Big 12 performers? Check. Shattered Cyclone record books in 2011? Check. Big 12 Coach of the Year? Check. Now ISU women’s golf coach Christie Martens has added NGCA Central Region Coach of the Year to her checklist. Martens, in her seventh year at the helm, guided the Cyclones to one of the most inspiring seasons in school history. Her leadership propelled the team to its second straight regional appearance and a fourth-place finish at the Big 12 tournament. The linksters also climbed to a No. 15 national ranking, the highest ever for ISU women’s golf. On their way to the top, the Cyclones mutilated the school record book. Martens’ squad collected three tournament titles, as well as three second place finishes. Coming into 2010, Iowa State had only won six tournaments in its past 14 years of competition. Individually, the women posted 11 of the top 12 18-hole scores in school history. Additionally, five of the top six three-round scores were replaced this season. Laurence Herman, Prima Thammaraks, and Sasikarn On-iam were among the record setters on their way to All-Big 12 honors. Thammarks, along with Victoria Stefansen and Punpaka Phuntumabamrung, tied for second in school

history with low rounds of 68. The 75.34 18-hole team average ranks third all-time in school history. Thammarks tied the individual record for 212 strokes on 54 holes. Martens’ selection marks the first time an Iowa State coach has won NGCA Regional Coach of the Year. Martens has turned the Cyclone program around and made Iowa State a conference force through not only great coaching, but also extensive recruiting. Martens has scanned the globe for talent since taking over in 2005, and has witnessed the steady improvement of her global golf stars. Of the ten women on the squad, only five hail from the United States. Stefansen and Herman, the only seniors on the team, hail from Denmark and Belgium, respectively. The European veterans have been an integral part of Martens’ turnaround. On the underclassmen side, Martens has recruited some of the premier golfers from Thailand. Phuntumabamrung, a sophomore, and Thammarks and On-iam, each freshmen, all call Bangkok home. These young phenoms are all expected to be a shining part of a bright future for Martens and the golf program. With this bevy of youths expected to return next season, Martens can be expected to continue showing why she is worthy of coach of the year honors.
