Big 12 Conference

Friday deadline set for move to Big Ten for realignment After months of speculation, all Big 12 schools may finally receive some answers regarding their future. A few days after last week’s Big 12 meetings finished, Big 12 officials reportedly set a deadline for Nebraska and Missouri to decide whether to stay in the Big 12 or make the long-discussed move to the Big Ten. “Nebraska has until 5 p.m. Friday to tell us what they’re going to do,” one school official said to the Austin AmericanStatesman. “The same deal for Missouri. They have to tell us they’re not going to the Big Ten.” This news comes from a report by ESPN Big 12 blogger David Ubben. In that report, Ubben also said officials from Missouri and Nebraska refused to comment on the validity of the report that a deadline has been set by the Big 12. So far, all reports only show a deadline for Nebraska and Missouri to make a decision, not any of the six schools rumored to be making the move to the Pac-10. It was reported Monday that the Pac-10 was given permission to search for possible suitors to help expand the conference. This news may have an even bigger effect on the rest of the Big 12 than the possibility of the Big Ten expansion. If the Pac-10 decides to invite Colorado, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech and those six schools accept its invitation, the Big 12 will still disband. Any decision made by any of the Big 12 schools to accept the Pac-10’s invitation may result in Nebraska and Missouri following suit and leaving for the Big Ten. With that being said, Nebraska and Missouri will have just as much power deciding what happens to the Big 12 as any of those other six schools. If the two north rivals decide to go to the Big Ten, it is possible the Pac-10 will get its six Big 12 teams soon after. Various reports have said a possible Pac-10 expansion is

not even close, however, one Big 12 official told the AmericanStatesman expansion could be happening sooner than most people think. “I’ve talked to the Pac-10,” one Big 12 official said to the American-Statesman. “There is an invitation. When it comes, it’ll come fast.” If all these rumors come true, it leaves another question left to be answered: What does this mean for Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas and Kansas State? Looking at Iowa State in particular, the possible breaking up of the Big 12 opens up several options for conferences. Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain Dealer outlined a few possible conferences Iowa State could move to if need be. “If the Big 12 ceases to exist as we know it, what will the options be for Iowa State?” Lesmerises said. “Do you go to a conference like the Mountain West? The MAC? Conference USA? I don’t know.” A possible Mountain West move may not be in the works, however. ESPN reported Monday that the Mountain West has no interest in expanding from nine teams at this time. However, the possibility may

still remain open for a future expansion of the Mountain West. But there is still the possibility of dropping some of the nation’s more prominent teams from the ISU athletics schedule. This could potentially result in fans losing interest in the program. “I think, for me, it would be difficult for fans to watch Iowa State go from playing Nebraska, Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State and playing other prominent teams, to go to being in a situation where you’re not part of that on a regular basis,” Lesmerises said. However, a move to a smaller conference may be potentially beneficial for Iowa State’s athletics. “But on the other hand, if Iowa State goes to a smaller or lesser conference, does it allow you to compete on a higher level?” Lesmerises said. “And in some ways, is that a good thing if you don’t have Texas and Oklahoma in your conference? Is that better for Iowa State?” Despite a busy week of news regarding the Big 12, it still remains to be seen how the Big Ten and Pac-10 expansion plans will affect Iowa State and the rest of the Big 12.

Town and Gown conference encourages community unity Sessions, luncheons present new ideas, suggestions to college towns such as Ames’ Campustown redevelopment By James Heggen Daily Staff Writer Representatives from cities and universities across the country traveled Tuesday to Ames for the 5th Annual Best Practices in Building University/ City Relations Conference. The conference was held June 1-3, and was put on by the International Town and Gown Associa-

tion. Jami Larson, Ames City Council member, said the conference grew out of luncheons at the National League of Cities meetings. He said at these luncheons, cities that had universities in them would meet to discuss the common problems and opportunities faced because of having a college or university.

Eventually, it was decided enough cities have universities in them and that a separate group would be formed. It began with this conference, and eventually the association was formed too, Larson said. Many different issues have been discussed, such as economic development, campus violence and partnering and promoting diversity, Larson

said. Sheila Lundt, assistant Ames city manager, said the size of the universities coming vary greatly, so they tried to plan and provide sessions for everyone. Some of the session topics included law enforcement cooperation, move-out recycling and economic development and transportation, among others. Two years ago, Larson and

Steve Schainker, Ames city manager, went to the Town and Gown Conference in College Station, Texas. They attended a session put on by Michigan State University about Campustown redevelopment. There, they met a developer who had experience in this type of project. “That’s kind of what spurred, along with GSB interest in doing something relating to Campustown, our ability to go out and find developers that could bid on the project that it is now ... looks like it’s going to move forward,” Larson said. Although the developer Ames is using, Lane 4 Property Group Inc., isn’t the developer Michigan State used for its proj-

ect, the session is what got them started. “[The current project] really came out of one of the sessions we attended a couple of years ago at Texas A&M,” Larson said. Lundt and Larson said the ability to talk to other cities and universities facing the same types of issues makes doing the job in Ames easier. “I think it makes [the] writing of our ordinances and codes a lot easier when you can call other people that have already been through it,” Larson said. Lundt said the city made an effort to get student involvement in the presentations, with many students giving presentations or helping out with the planning at the conference.

By Ivy Christianson Daily Correspondent Let the games begin. The Iowa Game Dev Friendship Club held TIGJam Midwest on June 4-6 in Des Moines. Josh Larson, ISU alumnus and assistant creator of God At Play, helped organize the gaming event. “Basically, developers get together and develop [video] games over a weekend,” Larson said. The event kicked off with speaker Alec Holowka, independent game developer from Infinite Ammo, located in California. Holowka was the main developer on “Aquaria,” an underwater ocean adventure game that won the grand prize at the Independent Game Festival in 2007. He spoke to participants about using purpose through their games. Afterward, a question and answer session was held and the event began. Teams made up of programmers, animators, designers, musicians and artists worked until 3 p.m. Sunday to create a video game based on the given

theme “proverbs.” Larson said the teams made a variety of games, all teams having creative ideas. “One team made a game based on ‘the early bird gets the worm’ proverb,” Larson said. “It was a racing, four-player game played with an XBox controller.” Another game was hinged on the proverb, “birds of a feather flock together.” The object of the game was to collect birds to get them to move together. Creating these games is not easy, though. Larson said the first day mostly consists of brainstorming. “Trying to get something on the screen at all is one of the most important things,” he said. “You start with a square you can move on the screen with arrow

keys,” he said. “Little things like that can be surprisingly difficult,” Larson said. Teams continue to add small elements, while simultaneously fixing minor problems that tend to arise during the creation process. The 35-40 people in attendance were mostly from Iowa. Some participants being college students, some being professionals and others were simply game enthusiasts. A team from 8monkey Labs, a game developing company headed up by Larson and three other ISU graduates, also took part in the event. Larson said the 8monkey Labs group and all other teams are really just looking to try new ideas. They are also looking to experiment with new designs dur-

ing gaming events. At this game jam, developers tried a new tool from Budcat Creations called Unity. The Unity tool allows creators to prototype games quickly. Which gives creators the ability to see what they’ve done and to learn from it as well. Although the game jam may seem competitive, the main focus of the event is to have fun and work with new designs. “We just sort of develop whatever and show it off,” Larson said. Other game jam events are held throughout the year, this jam being the third to occur year. Larson said the events are open to the public. And he encourages students to attend upcoming jams if interested.

5 Fingers Creative designs its own future By Micaela Cashman Daily Staff Writer Tim Read does not remember a time when he didn’t love art. “I’ve always drawn, for as long as I can remember,” said Read, owner of 5 Fingers Creative, 427 Douglas Ave. “There was no conscious day or moment when I decided it’s what I wanted to do.” 5 Fingers Creative, a graphic design company run solely by Read, has been an Ames institution since 2007. Before opening the studio, Read worked at Wells Fargo managing the design department. There he designed advertising, and was in charge of brand management. He did freelance designing on the side for about 20 years before deciding to start his business. “It was something I needed to do; it was a dream I had,” Read said. “As an illustrator it was important to me to follow my dream and see it through.” Read said he enjoys not having any restriction on his art like he did working for a large corporation. Now he gets to perform custom work based on his artistic vision. 5 Fingers Creative focuses on illustration, children’s art and designs for businesses. Currently, Read is getting into the licensing industry, helping businesses design their look. He does logo illustrations for many companies. Read serves a wide range of businesses, anywhere from small locals to large corporations like the ones he used to work for. “People who come to me are looking for something unique and fresh with lots of personality,” Read said. Read works on logos; web illustrations;

and graduation, wedding and retirement gifts, just to name a few. People wanting him to illustrate children’s books often just approach him, which is what he is working on now — he frequently has to turn down the authors. “Self-publishing is very difficult,” Read said. “Usually with large publishing companies, the illustrator is assigned to the book.” While he usually advises authors

brainstorm and come up with a plan. The brainstorming may not always result in work for Read, but part of his job is helping people with their creativity. Read chose to open 5 Fingers Creative in Ames because he thinks Ames is an “outstanding community.” He said while having a company in a more metro area may have been easier, since he works mostly online, he could have opened 5 Fingers Creative

to talk to other publishing companies before choosing him as the illustrator, Read said for those ambitious enough to want to publish independently, it is “a great opportunity to get a book together to send and show to a larger publishing company.” He is also approached by people that have creative ideas for their businesses, but they don’t always know what to do with them. Read helps them

from any location. People hear about his company mostly through wordof-mouth, but Read also has portfolio sites online, and he actively searches for clients. “I pick up the phone and call them,” he said. “They’re research calls, and then I send them samples of my work, and I

Oil Spill

Record Shop

Apologetic BP ads criticized rather than sympathized with

Vinyl Cafe celebrates official grand opening with free treats all week

By Jennifer Kay Associated Press Writer

Vinyl Cafe, 303 Kellogg Ave, will have its official grand opening at 11 a.m. Wednesday. The record store and coffee shop has been open since May, but is celebrating with free treats all week. The shop has more than 10,000 records in stock, as well as cassettes, CD’s and equipment. Inventory constantly changes as the owners acquire more records. Only around 400 records are on display at a time. Customers can hear unique music at the listening booth. Espresso-based drinks are brewed fresh to order, and pastries, baked fresh every day by BugaBoo Crafts and Services, are available. Vinyl Cafe is open 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday; 6 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tuesday; 6 a.m. – 8 p.m. Thursday; and 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday.

MIAMI — An apologetic advertising campaign by BP PLC for the oil spill polluting the Gulf of Mexico is going over about as well as the tar balls and rust-colored froth washing ashore in the Florida Panhandle. The new radio, TV, online and print ads feature BP CEO Tony Hayward pledging to fix the damage caused by an undersea gusher of crude oil unleashed by an April 20 drilling rig explosion that killed 11 people. The company will honor financial claims and “do everything we can so this never happens again,” he says in the spots. The ads began appearing last week and have been criticized by President Barack Obama, who said the money should be spent on cleanup efforts and on compensating fishermen and small business owners who have lost their jobs because of the spill. The ads also don’t thrill residents and visitors of the Gulf Coast, where the oil has blackened some beaches and threatens others. And others say the sentiments come to soon and insincerely. BP spokesman Robert Wine said in an e-mail Saturday that “not a cent” has been diverted from the oil spill response to pay for the ad campaign. He didn’t know its cost. BP estimates that it will spend about $84 million through June to compensate for lost wages and profits caused by the spill. The company has promised to pay all legitimate claims, and no claim has yet been rejected, Wine said. Shortly after the one-minute television and online version of the ad begins, Hay-

ward speaks to the camera, saying “The Gulf spill is a tragedy that never should have happened.” Hayward then narrates over images of boom lying in clear water before uncontaminated marshes and healthy pelicans. Cleanup crews walk with trash bags on white sand beaches as he touts the oil giant’s response efforts: more than 2 million feet of boom, 30 planes and more than 1,300 boats deployed, along with thousands of workers at no cost to taxpayers. The ad’s imagery clashes with disturbing news photographs published recently of pelicans coated in oil, gunk dripping from their beaks. “To those affected and your families, I’m deeply sorry,” Hayward says in the ad. As the ad fades out to show BP’s website

just keep in touch with them until they’re ready for my services.” Additionally, Read sends online newsletters to more than 300 people each month to let them know what he has to offer. He’s learned how to run 5 Fingers Creative by getting as much experience in the corporate world as possible. For those design dents at Iowa State looking to start their own businesses, Read has a bit of advice. “Build relationships

and volunteer hot line, he says, “We will get this done. We will make this right.” Public-relations experts said BP’s ad blitz seems premature and a little shallow. BP missed an opportunity to shift focus away from criticism of the company and toward BP’s strategy for cleaning up the spill, said Gene Grabowski, a senior vice president with Levick Strategic Communications. “The one element they seem to be missing is laying out a plan for what they’re going to do,” he said. “Usually in ads like these you apologize; he’s doing that in the ad. You talk about your resolve to fix the situation; that’s also included. But what’s missing is a concrete plan or vision for what they plan to do next.”

with the marketing department [of a corporation] and find out how they reach people,” he said. “Learn the marketing side of business. Sixty percent of it is marketing.” Read attends freelance conferences to learn about marketing, and he has a marketing coach to teach and help him. He is also involved with the design community on the internet, participating in blogs and learning as much as he can from others. “Have capital before you go [start your business],” Read said. “Build your business in layers. Don’t spend everything right away.” Over the years, Read has stayed in touch with trends in the design world, and continues to draw even if it isn’t for a client. “The majority of my work doesn’t have a client behind it,” he said. He does this work to continue to build his portfolio. He encourages design students to have works included in their portfolios that aren’t their college projects. “Show your vision and imagination; show your thought process. People are more interested in that than the actual work.” Read’s work has evolved over the years. He said his skills are

Cities boycott new Arizona law A

s I followed the debate about Arizona’s immigration law on CNN, Fox News and in the Associated Press, I suddenly realized how badly out of control illegal immigration has gotten. The main problem being our politicians. For instance, in response to Arizona’s immigration law, the L.A. City Council recently passed — by a vote of 13 to 1, with Republican Councilman Greig Smith being the dissenting vote — a city resolution stating: Until Arizona reverses its new immigration law, the city of Los Angeles is boycotting Arizona businesses and government. Other cities, such as Oakland and San Diego, are considering similar measures as well. Think about this for a moment: The politicians that form the L.A. City Council, by passage of their boycott resolution, encourage aid and support breaking the law while punishing those who enforce the law. If that doesn’t raise an eyebrow or two, the AP article also reports that Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, said in a statement it is “political suicide” to go after the

undocumented because of all the immigrant families in Los Angeles. So, illegal immigration has gotten so far out of control in L.A. that now we come to the sad realization illegals, with no voting rights, have power and influence over L.A.’s politicians more so than actual citizens the politicians are elected to represent. It gets worse. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson was quoted in a different article written by the AP as saying Arizona’s immigration law goes “against the democratic ideals of this country.” I would like to ask Richardson if there is any way to enforce immigration laws that are democratic in his mind. This statement has no substance; it’s purely grandstanding in an attempt to shame Arizona for doing something about illegal immigration. The debate over Arizona’s immigra-

tion law has even made its way to Sarah Palin and President Obama, with Palin telling Obama, “Do your job, secure our borders.” President Obama said Arizona’s immigration law threatened “to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and our communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe.” I am not sure how to tell Obama this, but illegal immigrants are not American citizens, and don’t have any rights under the law, constitutionally or otherwise. Illegal immigrants have no right to be in this country, or to even be employed here. Obama’s statements are more empty platitudes to shame Arizona for enforcing immigration laws. Most of the opponents of Arizona’s immigration law state it would lead to racial profiling, claimed L.A. City Councilman Ed Reyes and Obama. Furthermore, they seem to be making no distinctions between legal and illegal immigrants. By failing to recognize this difference, such actions can easily be seen as an attempt to make legal immigrants feel threatened by Arizona’s immigration law.

There is a question I would like to ask all these opponents of the immigration law: How do you enforce immigration laws if you’re not allowed to check or question, in any way, if someone is in the country legally? Political protection of illegal immigrants has reached the top of our government. The Department of Homeland Security stated it will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona. Why are these politicians so protective of those who came here illegally? Well, one answer might be that illegal immigrants are a safety net, if the politicians in Washington get to the point where they are unelectable, they just need to give amnesty to illegal immigrants to get the votes they need to stay in office. This is dangerous because it drowns out the importance and power of the American people. The Democratic Party needs to be replaced. In the next election, in order to preserve power to the people, the Democrats need to be voted out of power and replaced with a different political party; otherwise we as a people will continue to lose control of our government.

Time is right to be bold about immigration I

recently wrote some of the following in my Des Moines Register blog about immigration and immigration reform. Hypocrisy is the act of persistently professing beliefs, opinions, virtues, feelings, qualities or standards that are inconsistent with one’s actions. For as long as I can remember Americans have been professing to care about the problems of illegal immigrants. For just as many years we have behaved the opposite way: hypocrisy. As I said on Iowa Public Radio’s Talk of Iowa this week, two groups in particular have contributed to the continued stream of undocumented, and therefore illegal, immigrants. First, many of my more liberal colleagues in academia have always fought against any immigration reform that would tighten scrutiny and improve border security. It is notorious that universities and liberal college professors have argued there is no such thing as illegal immigration, and have bludgeoned people into using the phrase “undocumented immigrants” instead. A college friend of mine back in the 1960s tried to get into a movie without a ticket. When they sent him to the ticket counter he should have said, “I am not in her illegally to watch ‘Avatar,’ I am just an unticketed moviegoer.” I think not. Also, immigrant rights groups such as MALDEF, LULAC and La Raza have fought tooth and nail for softer immigration laws against the prosecution or deportation of the undocumented illegals. Truth in reporting: When I served as Gov. Terry Branstad’s Chairman of the Iowa Spanish Speaking People’s Commission, we were concerned with hostility to immigrants and mistreatment of illegal immigrants — so I am very sympathetic to the human rights and the personal lives of immigrants. After all, we are a nation of immigrants. However, I think illegal entry is unfair to those waiting patiently for legal permission to come to

the U.S. as my family did. A second group that has been unscrupulous is U.S. business. From the hospitality industry to agriculture, the construction industry, landscaping and lawn care, meat packing, to car washes — well you get the idea — U.S. businesses have looked the other way on illegal workers. Sometimes they looked the other way really hard and hired “agents” to supply them with workers; the company would be off the hook since “it was the contractors fault.” Often companies actually called the INS, now ICE, to have their factories raided to deport workers and then not pay them their wages and any accumulated benefits. Bad stuff indeed. So, while paying lip service, many groups in the U.S. have deliberately undermined and ignored illegal immigration. Academics did so out of compassion. Businesses, because U.S. workers were scarce and workers to do many jobs — think truck farms in 120 degree temperatures or cleaning toilets at Motel 6 — were mostly foreign ‘cause “Real Americans” won’t do that kind of work. At least not for the low wages paid. Also, those who object to immigration raids should remember that when they and their kids apply for a job they have to show legitimate identification information to get a job. The same is true for opening a bank account. In 2010, in many parts of the U.S. you actually have to show a picture ID to check into a hotel. In many large cities you have to show an ID and leave it at the security desk in exchange for a badge you must wear in the building. Have you objected to that the last time you were asked? Have you raised hell about profiling the last time a cop stopped you and asked for

drivers license and proof of insurance? On the other hand they did not ask if you were in the U.S. illegally, and threatened to arrest and have you deported unless you could prove it. So we need to calm down and realize that more and more — especially after 9/11 — we have become a country of ID security and verification. In fact, we all should carry at least one or preferably two forms of government identification with us. Maybe the time has come for a secure national ID card with holograms, biometrics and the whole nine yards. That would at least be fair and not raise suspicion of racial profiling. That kid who kept getting on airplanes to visit his grandfather in Texas also claimed he was not on the planes “illegally,” he said he was just traveling on Southwest Airlines “undocumented.” That did not fly either. There is no doubt that we need immigration reform that includes tighter borders, more scrutiny of people who come and never leave the U.S., and also ways for hard working

people with family and a stable place in U.S. society to be able to transition to citizenship. After all, without immigrants the United States would

quickly become Russia with a declining and aging population with all the terrible consequences: economic decline, a crisis for social insurance like

Social Security and Medicare, etc. Let’s have courage and enact immigration reform, but this time let’s be bold and do it right.

Q: I’m thinking about mulching around my trees and shrubs, what type of mulch do you recommend?

A: I would recommend a hardwood

mulch. Most colored mulches, whether they’re black, gold, red or brown, are all hardwood mulches. Remember, don’t be conservative when putting mulch around your trees and shrubs. Put down 3 to 4 inches of mulch to keep plants and trees cool, as well keep them weed free.
