Sophomore Austin Knupp, right, and senior Brandon Messer celebrate after being awarded the top two titles for the first-ever Mr. CALS pageant. The pageant raised $927.54 for future scholarships. Contestants were scored on things like personality, congeniality, and voting from the audience using money.

Block & Bridle Club steals Mr. CALS fundraising event By Bailey.McGrath iHooting and hollering students filled the Kildee Pavilion, cheering on male students as they strutted across a stage. Brock and Bridle stole the show Thursday night at the firstever Mr. CALS Competition hosted by professional agriculture sorority Sigma Alpha. Male students from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences competed to be called the first ever “Mr. CALS”, while raising money for Central Iowa Shelter Services. Austin Knupp, sophomore in agricultural business, was named Mr. CALS of 2013. Fellow Brock

and Bridle club member Brandon Messer, senior in agricultural business, was named CALS 2013 Mr. Congeniality. “We are both from Block and Bridle so we came and represented the club well,” Knupp said. Knupp and Messer were each awarded with a green t-shirt and mug decorated with their new titles. “I’m just looking forward to reigning over CALS for the next year,” Messer said. “I’m just looking forward to all the events we get to go to and just kind of represent our club and represent what agriculture is all about.” 24 contestants participated in three different events including formal wear, calendar boys and dress your major. Five judges, including three from the CALS and two Alpha Sigma advisors, scored the contenders on things like personality and congeniality, which counted for 60 percent of their

score. The other 40 percent came from the audience putting money in contestants’ individual boxes. Judges chose Mr. Congeniality based on personality scores. The evening began with the evening wear category, where contestants dressed in suits and ties and were escorted by a member of Sigma Alpha. The theme changed for the calendar boys event when contestants came out dressed for a certain season wearing outfits ranging from a grass skirt and coconut bra to camouflage. Contestants interacted with the judges and audience. Some even gave out flowers or ‘leied’ the judges, including Messer, Mr. congeniality. During this event, contestants had to answer questions like, “What is the hardest thing for young people in agriculture?” During intermission, contestants scurried around carrying white boxes

urging the audience to vote for them with their money. In the final event, dress your major, contestants walked out in attire pertaining to their future careers as the MC announced their field of study and fun facts about themselves. This was both Knupp and Messler’s favorite event, they said. Messler, who is planning on going home to farm and sell seed corn, came out on a John Deere


Minors test limits of alcohol citations Editor’s note: Sources last names have been removed to protect their identities.

By Mikayla.Tendall In late August, the Ames Police Department’s Safe Neighborhoods Team began an investigation into individuals providing alcohol to people younger than 21 years of age. Sgt. Mike Arkovich said a thorough investigation is conducted at the beginning of every academic year. The Safe Neighborhoods Team also investigates intermittently throughout the year, especially near Veishea. “It really helps curb the underage possession and consumption and helps with intoxication levels,” Arkovich said. “A lot of it would be word of mouth, so when somebody got arrested and would tell their friends, it helps as well.” During the investigation, 11 individuals were arrested for providing alcohol to persons younger than 21 years of age during the investigation. Three individuals were cited for providing alcohol to underage persons. An 18, 19 or 20-yearold who provides another with alcohol can face a fine between $65 and $625 and could face up to 30 days in jail. Anyone 21 or older who provides an underage person with alcohol faces a serious mis-

demeanor — an offense equivalent to driving while intoxicated — and fines from $500 to $1875. “We watch convenience stores and watch people,” Arkovich said. “We kind of know how the purchases go on. If someone goes in and buys a bunch of alcohol at once, it’s more suspicious than if someone goes in and buys a case of beer.” Many ISU students have first-hand experience with being provided or providing alcohol under age. Lyndzi, freshman in journalism and mass communication, said she has been provided with alcohol by of-age students she met at Iowa State, like many other students. “I don’t really buy it a lot because there’s usually beer I get at parties,” Lyndzi said. “Or I usually have a friend I can split [alcohol] with.” Her providers, who usually buy at a liquor store, have not been caught for providing. “They usually use cash and don’t buy in huge quantities, so it’s not suspicious,” she said. “Usually you just know not to say anything and everyone has their own hook-up, so I don’t need to provide for other people.” Cody, freshman in civil engineering, said his providers are friends from high school. “Everybody has a provider,” he said. “It’s mainly that people have

Students discover ways to keep faith during college By Brian.Day After packing their bags, moving to college and exploring their newfound freedom, some students find their religious service attendance or their strength in faith significantly drops. According to a survey done by the National Longitudinal Study of

Adolescent Health, “64 percent of those currently enrolled in a traditional four-year institution have curbed their attendance habits.” That is compared to the 76 percent of people who reported a decline in religious service attendance but never enrolled in any type of post-secondary education. Students can avoid

being a part of this statistic, if they choose. There are many opportunities across Iowa State and other universities around the world for college students to stay involved and continue in their faith. “There are a number of churches and college ministries in Ames,” said

Researchers at Iowa State have developed the first test to detect antibodies of the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus. Referred to as PEDV, the virus is found in pigs of all ages and causes a severe form of diarrhea, resulting in dehydration and the death of pigs on farms across the United States. “In the young pigs, this infection is very devastating,” said KyoungJin Yoon, professor of veterinary diagnostic and production animal medicine. “A lot of those animals die because of dehydration and eventually they cannot get the nutrients in. “We had cases that we couldn’t solve. A lot of pigs were dying and we couldn’t come up with an answer.” Researchers initially identified the virus as transmissible gastroenteritis, a virus similar to PEDV, but all tests came back negative. That is when Yoon and his team of researchers came upon the PEDV virus. “Everything looked like TGE, but it wasn’t,” said John Johnson, clinician in veterinary diagnostics and production animal medicine. “That’s when Dr. Yoon and his group developed a PCR, [polymerase chain reaction,] that could detect PEDV in virtually no time.” Yoon said his team also has prepared for viruses it has not encountered yet. “As far as I know, there are no other animals that are infected with this virus and no human infection cases,” Yoon said in regards to the PEDV. The test keeps infected animals from being transported to farms and potentially spreading the disease. “We know that it is extremely devastating on the sow farm, where the young pigs would be born,” said Johnson. “It will basically wipe out all of the pigs. It is vitally important that we are able to tell them the status of those animals before they move. “They need to know if they are carrying the virus presently and shedding it or even if they’ve ever been exposed.” The test gives researchers and farmers the ability to know if the animal has ever been exposed to this virus. The chain reaction test is one Yoon developed to see if the virus is carried in fecal material. It will be used in combination with the antibody test to see if the animal has ever been exposed. Yoon said the research group receives support from the Iowa Pork Producers. So far, the research lab at Iowa State is the only lab that offers this test. “Discovery is important,” said Johnson. “We have just touched the tip of the iceberg on foreign disease.”

A lot has changed since the 1970s, but the foundation for Iowa State’s First-Year Honors Program has remained the same. The University Honors Program began in 1960 when some individuals saw an opportunity to bring together students who were highly engaged in their education. The program allowed those who had already proven themselves to advance their curriculum through research and study. In 1970, Iowa State started to look at freshmen to determine what it could do to help students engage in an honors education. “Our experience is all about that transition piece for our students,” Law said. “It’s the key factor to a lot of students choosing the Honors Program at Iowa State.” The current program has 457 members and is still mentor-oriented.

Tensions in Congress are rising as the deadline for a government shutdown closes in. Five days remain, and Congress still needs to come to a decision on whether to leave their doors open for business on Tuesday. The Senate is not leaving the House much time to vote on their revised continuing resolution bill, which would still fund the Affordable Care Act as well as the federal government. Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, said the Senate needs to get the bill moving and sent off to the House. “We’ll vote on the cloture petition on that substitute Saturday morning,” Harkin said. “Then there is 30 hours of debate after that, so sometime on Sunday we would vote on the final passage and then

send it back to the House.” This situation would only occur if all time is used up in the Senate. Harkin said he hopes to get the bill to the House much sooner than Sunday. Congress has become a figurative battlefield when it comes to Obamacare. It is a fight that is taking them to the final seconds before making a major decision: either shut down the federal government, or keep it running. “I voted against Obamacare, and I voted once to repeal it,” said Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. “I’ve always said we need to do everything we can to keep it from going into effect,. Harkin said he, along with the Senate, would be more than willing to negotiate the terms of Obamacare. However, he is not a supporter of defunding the act completely. “We’ve always been willing to negotiate on the

Affordable Care Act. That’s why we have committees set up,” Harkin said. “If they want to make changes in the Affordable Care Act, then that’s the proper place to do it. They have the proper committees in the House to do that also if they have changes they want to make.” In the event of a government shutdown, which is pegged to occur next week, Grassley said many services and programs would still continue to operate. “Essential services, and I can’t define those essential services, continue to function as do mandatory spending programs,” Grassley said. However, Harkin disagreed. The Social Security office, he said, will be shut down or staffing will be reduced. The clinical center of the National Institutes of Health also will be affected by the shutdown. Grassley said he is

Edwin Lewis, the first chairman of the Honors Program, and Cody Hancock, sophomore in chemical engineering and current student leader for the Honors Program, will give speeches. Lewis will speak about the history of the program and Hancock will talk about what the program has done for him. “I don’t know how [the program] was 40 years ago, but I’m going to talk about my experiences, and I just hope it will bring back some of their memories,” Hancock said. Hancock credits the program with how he met many of his friends and for helping him to grow as an individual. “It’s given me a community that I can rely on and go to for anything, and it’s great,” said Hancock. Saturday’s gala will highlight how the program has changed as well as what the future holds.

Aaron Montag, 19, of West Bend, was cited for underage possession of alcohol at Lot B5 (reported at 4:00 p.m.).

While previously only faculty and staff worked with the students, it now includes upper-division honor students to run the seminar. “The honors program has become a forerunner for national standards,” said Laurie Smith Law, administrative director for the University Honors Program. The program is now planning to honor some of the first classes: 1972, 1973 and 1974. “We call them our guinea pigs for being the first three classes that went through the program as it was being put together,” Law said. This Saturday, the Honors Program will host its anniversary gala in the Scheman Building. Approximately 50 alumni are expected to attend. A cocktail hour will begin the night at 5:30 p.m. The main part of the gala will start at 6 p.m., allowing time for more socializing afterward. The major portion of the night will consist

‘Daily Show’ writer suggests rewriting Constitution Bleyer promotes changes to Supreme Court tenure in book ‘Me the People’ By Bailey. Appelhans Kevin Bleyer believes the U.S. Constitution to be a “hot mess.” Bleyer, an Emmy Award-winning writer for “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” a frequent commentator on NPR and a contributor to several of President Barack Obama’s speeches, arrived at Iowa State on Thursday, Sept. 26, for a lecture in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union. Bleyer’s lecture drew support for his book “Me the People: One Man’s Selfless Quest to Rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America.” After pointing out that many Americans misquote, misuse and misinterpret the Constitution, Bleyer suggested the document is obsolete. He said the Constitution is less of a “blue print” and more of an “Etch A Sketch.” Bleyer also said he takes it upon himself to rewrite the Constitution. Bleyer pointed out that Thomas Jefferson once said that each constitution “expires” after 19 years. “If Apple can rewrite their iTunes terms of service every 19 minutes, I can

[rewrite the Constitution] every 19 years,” Bleyer said. Bleyer went on to talk about one of his suggested changes to the Constitution. “My proposed change to the Supreme Court: revoke lifetime tenure,” Bleyer said. Bleyer spoke about meeting with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to discuss his supposed change to Article 3 of the Constitution. Bleyer said there should be a change since the Constitution says nothing about lifetime tenure. The Constitution states that Supreme Court justices should remain in their positions as long as they showcase “good behavior,” he said. Bleyer’s supposed revision would include appointing three people to make sure the justices still are showcasing this good behavior. He suggested this holds true to the original meaning of the Constitution rather than the modern-day government’s interpretation of it as a lifetime tenure. Bleyer went on to speak about the growing popularity of “fake news.” He spoke about how many people get their actual news from shows like “The Daily Show.” “America never really saw it coming, but satire has become a pretty darn popular way to digest the bitter pill that is daily news,” Bleyer said. In addition to speaking about the

Primary Health Care Inc. has four health centers and one dental clinic in Des Moines. Sen. Tom Harkin announced recently new center will be built, this time for the residents of Story County.

Obamacare to bring community health center to Ames By Zoe.Woods A community health center will be built in Ames by next year. Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, announced Sept. 13, that Primary Health Care Inc. will receive funds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to begin the construction of the new facility. “Under the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, we have put more money to open more community health centers around the country,” Harkin said. “One of those is in Ames; they’ve been working for a couple years or more to get everything together to open it.” Ryan Crane, development director for the incorporation, said the money was allotted by the Health Resources and Services Administration, an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services. “We were granted this pool of money because we will be providing health services to underserved residents in Story County,” Crane said. Primary Health Care applied for a new access point through the administration. Grants are given out in order to help areas with poor social indicators. Story County has a high percentage of ciga-

rette smokers, diabetics, binge drinkers and people who live below the poverty line, Crane said, and that is why Primary Health Care was granted the money, to serve the population. “The goal is to serve upward of 4,000 Story County residents with this new pool of money,” Crane said. Harkin said it is important for the public to have these community health facilities. However, because Republicans in the House are trying to defund Obamacare, it will be difficult to provide the necessary care if the facilities don’t have the funds to do so. “Again, this is under the Affordable Care Act ... and people have to understand that when there is Ted Cruz and others, and the people in the House, Republicans, are saying that they want to defund Obamacare, well that means they want to defund this also,” Harkin said. “We need these community health centers.” In case Obamacare is defunded, Crane knows Primary Health Care’s project will not be affected. “We will be getting [the money] from [the Health Resources and Services Administration], so actually it shouldn’t impact us too much one way or the oth-

er,” Crane said. “If the government is temporarily defunded it should not jump our progress.” Primary Health Care has been working with many companies in the area in order to find a location for the new facility. “We are working with community partners and meeting with the Story County Community Foundation, with Mary Greeley Medical Center, with the McFarland Clinic, with a lot different folks in the area trying to determine where the best spot for us is,” Crane said. Crane said the project should be finished by Feb. 1, 2014, at which point Primary Health Care will provide basic health care and referral services for behavioral health, primary care, mental

health, substance abuse and chronic health conditions that relate to the health of the population of Story County. Crane said the new health facility would serve many of the residents in Story County in need of medical provisions. “We would certainly not turn away students, but our experience is either students often times have insurance with their parents or if they don’t,” Crane said. “Often times, they get health insurance through the university.” Crane said he doesn’t believe students will be the majority of people Primary Health Care receives for care. Crane said he hopes that as the service branches out in Story County, it will be able to enhance its already fairly good reach in central Iowa.

Barilla proves personal views hurt business Hate is everywhere, whether it is racism, homophobia or class warfare. However, it is particularly poignant when it is close to home, as is the case with Barilla Chairman Guido Barilla, who made prejudiced comments about the gay community on Thursday. Barilla America Inc. is headquartered in Parma, Italy, but one of its two U.S. production plants is located here in Ames. The tall white cylinders of the plant, as well as the Barilla logo, greet many as they drive to Ames. Chairman Barilla is reported as having said (translated from Italian): “We won’t include gays in our ads, because we like the traditional family. If gays don’t like it, they can always eat another brand of pasta.” Barilla even saw fit to comment on gay affairs unrelated to his company, saying: “I have no respect for adoption by gay families because this concerns a person who is not able to choose.” Ignoring the difficulty that gays might have in finding another pasta brand in Ames (other than generic store brands), the gay community and its supporters were understandably outraged by Barilla’s statements. As in many U.S. states, gay marriage is not legal in Italy. Regardless, some of the population there is upset. In response, the president of Italy-based Equality Italia said: “We accept [Barilla’s] invitation to not eat his pasta.” Barilla was quick to apologize for the offensive quotes, releasing a statement including the following: “I have the utmost respect for gay people and for everyone’s right to express themselves. I’ve also said — and I would like to reiterate — that I respect gay marriages.” It would be a decent enough apology, except that this statement directly contradicts things Barilla previously said. No matter how carefully he proceeds from this point, Barilla can’t take back the things he already said. This renders all apologies useless and ironic. In any case, this is not the first example of a company leader making anti-gay or otherwise offensive statements which directly lead to immediate consumer outrage. The Abercrombie and Fitch CEO was met with national outrage when he was quoted as having said: “We want to market to cool, good-looking people; we don’t market to anyone other than that,” as well as numerous other exclusionary remarks. The company, who doesn’t see fit to sell women’s clothes above a size 10 but sells men’s clothing up to an XXL, was boycotted by many groups in response to the CEO’s offensive stance. When the president of Chick-fil-A made several anti-gay statements, the gay community and gay rights activists were furious. The word “boycott” streamed across Twitter, Facebook and all other forms of social media, just as it is with the Barilla comments. Despite this, the company profited from the “bad” publicity as a result of a large positive response from religious communities. Regardless of whether these particular companies profited from their offensive statements, it seems a questionable business model to exclude groups within a consumer population. And, based on the apologetic statements that most of these company leaders issue after the fact, they know it, too. Consumers have made it known they do care about the policies and ideals of the company to whom they are choosing to give their loyalty and money. Owners certainly have a right to their own opinions, but attaching those opinions with their company is foolish when the goal is to please the consumer and make a profit. A local boycott of Barilla will only harm the workers of the Ames and Nevada community, who are distantly associated with their Italian headquarters. Additionally, Chickfil-A is a good example of how some boycotts might not override oppositional support. Either way, sensational statements made by business owners may grab the headlines, but they most likely aren’t going to be bringing in any new business. As a nation of consumers, we have the ability to send clear messages by the products we choose to place in our home cabinets and refrigerators. Business owners, on the other hand, might want to rethink before attaching a personal view to their company.

Robin Thicke’s hit single “Blurred Lines” was part of Miley Cyrus’ controversial 2013 Video Music Awards performance, but columnist Sam Greer argues the catchy song with its dark, disturbing message is the real threat to modern morality.

Get your vision checked ‘Blurred Lines’ shows society’s moral decline with violent language By Sam.Greer


he day after the 2013 Video Music Awards, everyone was talking about the antics of Miley Cyrus during her performance of “We Can’t Stop” and the subsequent duet with Robin Thicke of “Blurred Lines.” I found the footage on YouTube and watched sadly as the former Disney star paraded casually around on stage with naught but a fleshcolored PVC bikini and a foam finger on her body. Miley Cyrus was dismissed as a woman of ill repute, and the chatter about her performance gradually died down, but I was still in shock. Not from the over-the-top, scandalous display though; many ladies in the music industry are unfortunately under the impression that flashing skin will score fans. I was in more shock from the second song in the set, “Blurred Lines.” I had heard the song before and didn’t particularly like it, but I had never paid any mind to the lyrics before watching the Video Music Awards. I felt uncomfortable with the presumptuous, aggressive sound of “I know you want it.” How can a guy know a girl wants it if she hasn’t explicitly expressed interest? But my jaw dropped at the words “Nothing like your last guy, he too square for

you/He don’t smack that ass and pull your hair like that.” You’re telling me my man is “square” because he doesn’t hit me or pull my hair? Excuse me if I prefer being treated like a human being rather than a punching bag. My jaw dropped because the pervasive theme of this song seems to be sexual violence. The lyrics suggest that there is a gray area between consensual sex and rape, when in reality there are no blurred lines. Some rape victims refrain from telling anyone about the attack because the attacker was someone familiar; because of this, they aren’t sure that the attack was rape. In reality, most sexual assaults are committed by someone the victim knows in some capacity. Even if the victim is in a relationship with the attacker, nonconsensual sexual acts absolutely constitute rape. “She was asking for it.” This is said of so many victims of sexual violence, and it makes me sick. No one is ever asking for it, regardless of what one is doing or wearing. A man never knows a woman wants it; under absolutely no circumstances can there be nonverbal communication or conduct that explicitly says: “I want to have sex with you.” There must be straightforward, spoken consent or a sexual advance becomes assault. Many testimonies from rape survivors involve the rapists telling them they were “asking for it,” as though the victims were to blame for their situation. This can cause the subsequent feelings of humiliation and guilt that tend to accompany sexual assault. Some rape victims cannot determine the true nature of their attack because they are told

that they “want it.” Sound familiar? Perhaps you were as blissfully oblivious of the message as I was: I was unaware of the song’s meaning because I couldn’t catch enough of the lyrics. I sincerely hope this is the case. If this isn’t the case, and you listen to this song like it’s just another superficial party anthem intended for nights of flashing lights, pounding bass and number exchanges with attractive, inebriated people, think it through. Ladies, do you really want to be seen dancing to a song that encourages men to physically abuse you? Gentlemen, do you really want to be associated with a message of sexual violence? This song is insidious; sexual assault and other immoral messages, disguised by music, have crept up on society, like water slowly heating on a stove. Society will steep in those twisted influences, ignorant of the water’s gradual increase in temperature until it is too late. “Blurred Lines” is the emblematic apex of a gradual decline in society’s sense of morality; it is up to the young adults in society to reverse this moral disintegration. If this song comes on at a dance, speak to the disc jockey. If this song plays on the radio, talk to the station. As the principal consumers of popular music, we have the ability to evoke change with every song we purchase; in the same way, we have the power to turn the tide with every song we boycott. “Blurred Lines” is boiling water. To discourage the prevalence of sexual violence, it is about time we paid attention to the heat.

Letter to the editor

Seek dialogue, not soundbite debates Matthew Brown is a senior in management information systems. In his column in the opinion section on Monday, Michael Glawe discussed the fact that religious debates often include the speaker using a standard of truth (namely the Bible) that is not agreed upon by both sides. He laments that among the religious, there are no “true arguer[s], like Socrates” who reason from the ground up. While it is untrue to assume that there are no true arguers among the religious, I agree that there should be better intellectual discourse in the free-speech zone. First, it is an observational fact of political or religious debate that both sides often use what are known as soundbite arguments. This is when a person will present their case in a short length and in a way that suggests that any further dialogue on the matter is unnecessary. These arguments are often hasty generalizations or are just plain fallacious,

but it doesn’t matter. Often when you disagree with the argument, you are instantly written off as being unreasonable. That being said, I believe that Glawe’s statement, “Evidence of [Socrates’] existence is about as loose as the existence of Jesus Christ,” is a similar soundbite. This point is not central to the main point of his article, with which I generally agree. It is thrown in as a quip for which no evidence is given. The existence of Jesus is not unimportant, but I will say no more on this issue other than that Glawe has assumed a burden of proof that must be supported with evidence. This brings me to my second contention. In our discussions of religion, we must focus on the main issues rather than getting side tracked. The critical questions on which Christianity stands or falls are often overlooked. I argue that the core claims that are salient to discerning the truth of my religion are as follows: 1. God exists.

2. Jesus rose bodily from the dead. Most people would agree that the probability of Christianity being true is significantly increased if these two propositions are true. It is these crucial issues that we ought to discuss in the free-speech zone, rather than the statements made in order to draw in a crowd. Reasonable dialogue about religion is one of the things about college I have most enjoyed. Most noticeably, Fridays at the free-speech zone have been a place of dialogue between Christians, members of the Atheist and Agnostic Society and the various people who happen to walk past. There is indeed an intellectual case that can be made for Christianity. Just as the Apostle Paul debated with the philosophers of Athens, there are Christians today who are ready to give an answer to the skeptics’ honest questions. Regardless of what one believes, all students should work to seek truth with an open mind.

Something as simple as slowing down and savoring your morning coffee can help you bring focus to your life, potentially improving productivity and creativity in day-to-day life.

Find focus through everyday activities By Kristen.Daily


editation is often associated with hours of sitting cross-legged on the floor, lighting candles or activities like yoga. And while these are beneficial and worthwhile, the day simply doesn’t have enough hours to accommodate these practices. Mindfulness meditation, however, can be practiced anywhere and at anytime. Mindfulness meditation emphasizes the same inner quietness and focus as yoga and other forms of meditation, but instead of practicing meditation separate from the daily routine, mindfulness simply changes daily habits into moments of meditation. Kate Bratskeir, of the Huffington Post, discusses this practice in her article “How to Meditate Without Meditating At All.” She says: “Your meditation doesn’t have to emulate the Buddha’s 49-day retreat. Whether you think there’s no time for a mindfulness meditation practice, or the concept of sitting in stillness is more daunting than restful, there are still ways

to reap the benefits of the ancient art. … You don’t have to change your routine all that much: All it takes is tweaking your intention.” Being intentional is what mindfulness meditation is all about. This might sound cliche, but it involves being aware of yourself moment-to-moment and in your daily activities. Bratskeir notes that psychologists suggest simple practices such as turning off music while you walk or drive and concentrating on your sensory perceptions actually sharpens your inner focus and benefits mental and emotional health. Being mindful allows people to focus on their emotions and body, which can lead to better balance and more happiness. She also notes: “Many successful people (like Oprah, Rupert Murdoch and even Arianna Huffington, to name a few) credit meditation for their razor-sharp focus, enviable level of productivity and bountiful amounts of creative juice. You, too, can join this esteemed group of meditators without sitting cross-legged by candlelight. Here are a few ways to implement mindfulness into your everyday life.” Bratskeir suggests several activities to

begin practicing mindfulness meditation. For example, mindful cleaning. This might sound trite or undesirable, but focusing on cleaning stops your mind from simply wandering — as it is prone to do — and allows you to focus on a single thought or feeling. Many people who practice this suggest mindful dish washing — the water and cleansing process is considered soothing and purposeful. In addition to that, taking a warm shower and concentrating on the sensation and smells, of soap and shampoo, can help the body unwind and the mind focus. Other ideas include going for a run without your iPod, taking a walk and stargazing. What you do is not nearly as important as how you do it. Intentional eating is another great way to experience mindfulness. Taking time to prepare a meal and focus on what goes into it can give one a sense of accomplishment and gratitude for what they are eating. Taking small bites, savoring and sitting down with others to share the meal can be a very rewarding experience. Even if your only option is grabbing something on campus or eating in the cafeteria, don’t rush through your next meal; take time to

slow down and enjoy it. Sipping your morning coffee is another great way to slow down and take time to focus. Often, we grab coffee on the go to get our caffeine boost for the day, but mindfulness meditation offers the opportunity both to savor the coffee and to increase productivity and focus by slowing down. Writing or journaling is another great way to be intentional about your actions and interactions with the world around you. This space is wonderful for reflection, gaining perspective and being consciously thankful. Last year, I wrote about some of these benefits in the article “Unlocking creativity and happiness with journaling.” Whatever it is that you do, slow down and take time to focus on the activity at hand. Become conscious of the moment you are living in and simply breathe in and out. Mindfulness meditation offers tangible rewards — increased productivity and creativity, but also leads to more abstract — mental and emotional rewards as well. Our hurried lives often push us through the motions too quickly to notice, leaving no time for relaxation or mindfulness. Be intentional to become balanced.

Food stamp reform could lead to big savings By Danny.Schnathorst


n Sept. 19, the House of Representatives passed a bill that cut government spending by $39 billion over 10 years. The bill passed 217-210. However, no Democrats voted for the measure. As a matter of fact, many Democrats have vowed to vote against it when the bill is brought to the Senate. Some have even said the $39 billion cut is “just too much.” However, there are projections that the bill will not pass through the Senate and is very unlikely to pass the president if it gets that far. So exactly why is a $39 billion cut “too much”? The epidemic of food stamps is becoming out of control. As of September 2013, there are nearly 48 million people on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. SNAP is a program for government assistance offered to low income families to help pay for food. This number means that 1 in 7 people in America are currently receiving food stamps from the government. This number is up from the 28.2 million people who received SNAP benefits in 2008. That is a 69 percent increase in just five years. The worst part is the amount the government spends on the program. In fiscal year 2012, the U.S. government spent $74.6 billion funding the SNAP program. Most people don’t know that as of June 2012, 1.6 food stamp users were noncitizens. This number is double the one from 2008 and quadruple that from 2001. Something must be done. All people asking for governmental assistance should be required by law to take a drug test to receive it and take random drug tests to maintain the

benefits. In order to start a new job, one must submit to a drug test and be subject to random drug tests. The least that a SNAP applicant should be asked to do is a simple drug test. Some SNAP participants cannot afford food for their family because they are too busy worrying about when they will be able to afford their next fix of marijuana or other substances. This solution will not only lower the number of people on SNAP, but it will also save the government money in the long run. The problem is not the fact that the government is helping people. The problem is how the program is handled. The issues here presented do not apply to every single user of SNAP; there are plenty of people who actually need to be on it. The problem is the people who abuse the privilege. The program Women, Infants and Children, known as WIC, was developed to help lowincome pregnant, postpartum and breast feeding women as well as infants and children up to 5 years old who are deemed to have nutritional risks. There are many differences between SNAP and WIC, one of them being the amount of money the government spends on each program. While the government spent nearly $75 billion on SNAP, the United States spent only $7 billion on WIC in the 2012 fiscal year. Another key difference is what you are available to purchase with the government’s (read: taxpayers’) money. WIC foods include infant cereal, ironfortified adult cereal, vitamin C-rich fruit or vegetable juice, eggs, milk, cheese, peanut butter, dried and canned beans/peas, canned fish, soy-based beverages, tofu, fruits and vegetables, baby foods, whole-wheat bread, and other whole-grain options.

Brian Achenbach/Iowa State Daily

Under current Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program guidelines, any of the foods above can be bought with food stamps. Columnist Danny Schnathorst suggests SNAP be revised so only healthy foods can be purchased.

This is the kind of governmental help that should be offered. If you are in need of government assistance, the basics should be more than enough to get you back on your feet. SNAP’s food eligibility seriously needs to be revised to follow WIC’s footsteps. Did you know that foods acceptable on SNAP include soft drinks, candy, cookies, ice cream, energy drinks with a nutrition facts label, specialty bakery cakes, lobster and filet mignon? In Menominee, Mich., a woman used her food stamps to purchase fresh lobster, porterhouse steaks and five 24-packs of Diet Mountain Dew totaling $141.78. I don’t know very many

people who throw lobster, steak and Mountain Dew parties, but if you are a recipient of SNAP, you are eligible, and it has been done. Another problem I have with food stamps came about when I first started working at my local grocery store. I have encountered a number of people who will come to my line with $50 worth of junk food, swipe their Electronic Benefit Transfer card, then pay for $100 worth of alcohol and cigarettes with cash, because SNAP does not cover alcohol and tobacco products. In Oregon, you are allowed to use SNAP benefits at Starbucks inside of grocery stores. A woman taped herself

purchasing a tall Frappuccino and a slice of fresh pumpkin bread. Starbucks isn’t the only absurd place where you can take a swipe towards our country’s debt. In some states, such as California, places like KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut and Subway will gladly accept your Electronic Benefit Transfer card. The problem isn’t offering help to those in actual need. The problem is giving handouts to people who abuse what they are given. Next time a government takes a slice out of your paycheck, you might want to watch how your money is spent. It might be spent on lobster and Diet Mountain Dew.

Changing of



Jaslyn Clark/Iowa State Daily

As the leaves change, so should students’ dressing habits. Wearing layers is suggested to prepare for the constantly changing Iowa weather. Drinking plenty of water can also keep one healthy.

By William.Byal As the leaves begin to change color and fall from trees around campus, students begin to slip on their jackets in preparation for the coming fall weather. William Gallus, professor of geological and atmospheric sciences, said the current weather will probably last through most of next week, but Iowa could see the next freeze as early as two weeks from now. Due to Iowa’s position in the middle of the continent, it is subject to more volatile weather.

“When October starts, I think the average daytime temperature can still be in the high 60s to around 70 [degrees],” Gallus said. Madeline Wingert, community adviser in Friley Hall, said students can prepare for Iowa’s fall weather by bringing warm clothes from home as soon as possible. She also encourages the use of sweatshirts and jeans for colder days. Students who are not native to Iowa might be unaware of the weather changes that occur from summer to fall. “It’s always colder than it looks,” said Nick Wentz, junior

in aerospace engineering from Omaha. “Don’t base the temperature on how much sun is shining.” Gallus said it is crucial for students to follow the forecast to prepare for unexpected weather. “I think for someone new to Iowa, I would emphasize that our weather can go quickly from uncomfortably hot, to uncomfortably cold,” Gallus said. “In October, we’ve had days in the 90s where everybody would complain that it was way too hot. We’ve also had snow and nights getting down into the teens.” Gallus said students could be

surprised when a pleasantly sunny day gives way to harsh winds and blowing rain, rendering their shorts and jacket ineffective. “Normal in Iowa is more of a roller coaster,” Gallus said. Wingert said the drastic change in weather often spurs illness among students. “When you live in a residence hall, one person gets sick and everyone gets sick. It spreads like wildfire,” Wingert said. She suggested students maintain proper health by drinking a lot of water throughout the day. Damian Chimes, a study

abroad student from Sydney, Australia plans on waiting until it gets colder before he goes out and buys new clothes. In Sydney the average temperature during fall is 50 degrees. “We call it Autumn in Sydney. It cools down a little bit, but it stays pretty mellow and you can still go to the beach every other weekend,” said Chimes. While many relish these final days of comfotable weather, Chimes is already looking forward to an Iowa seasonal staple. “It’s going to be exciting to see snow on the ground, I’ve never seen snow in Sydney.”

West Nile virus enters peak season for infection By Mackensie.Moore Summer may be over, but mosquito season is not. The risk of West Nile virus is at its peak this time of year. “There were 31 reported cases of West Nile last year,” said Dr. Cosette Scallon, physician at the Thielen Student Health Center. Before 2012, West Nile virus was decreasing; however, within the past year, the problem has increased again. “Weather is still perfect for the mosquitoes. We will have it probably as long as the weather is warm like this,” said Dr. Ricardo Arbulu, who specializes in infectious diseases at McFarland Clinic. According to the Iowa Department of Public Health, 21 human cases of West Nile virus have been reported in Iowa this year. Additional cases are being investigated. “This is the time of year where we think about West Nile virus,” Scallon said. The virus comes from infected birds. A mosquito can become infected with the virus if it bites a bird that is infected with the virus. “Not every mosquito has West Nile,” Scallon said. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 70 to 80 percent of people who become

infected with West Nile virus do not show any symptoms. “It is always surprising when someone gets super sick from West Nile virus,” Scallon said. A bite from a mosquito that carries the virus is no different compared to a bite from a mosquito that doesn’t carry the virus. “You may think you have the flu during the summer or fall when it’s warm out and it’s not really the flu; it could be a West Nile virus,” Arbulu said. The symptoms of the virus, according to the CDC, range from no symptoms to severe health complications. Severe symptoms of the virus are headache, high fever, neck stiffness, disorientation, coma, tremors, seizures and paralysis. “If you go to the doctor with the severe symptoms, you will be admitted into the hospital,” Arbulu said. According to the CDC, only about 1 percent of people infected with West Nile virus have severe or neurological symptoms. “You want to use re-

pellent that contains DEET, any repellent should be good, but DEET has been proven to reduce bites by mosquitos,” Arbulu said. Scallon said standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Emptying out birdbaths or fountains that have water in them will help prevent a mass of mosquitoes from forming. Use the necessary precautions when doing activities outdoors. If infected with West Nile virus, contact the Student Health Center or any other health care provider.

Football claims first win of 2013 season Cyclones enact revenge after Liberty Bowl loss to Tulsa By Alex.Halsted

File: Blake Lanser/Iowa State Daily

No. 6 Kristen Hahn kneels in an attempt to return the ball after an attack from the Texas Longhorns last season at Hilton Coliseum. The Cyclones face the Baylor Bears this Saturday at home to kick off their 2013 Big 12 conference schedule.

ISU to host Baylor in Big 12 opener Polls push Cyclones to earn 8th-straight win against Bears By Dan.Cole Given the struggles the ISU volleyball team experienced during its nonconference schedule this season, there is going to be a greater need for wins as it navigates its way through the difficult Big 12 schedule. Conference play kicks off this weekend with a home match against Baylor in which the No. 25 Cyclones (6-4) will pursue their second winning streak of the season. They started the season 4-0 before losing four of their next five matches. “I think there’s always pressure [to win],” said ISU senior libero Kristen Hahn, who leads the Big 12 in digs per set this season with 5.44.

“With the preseason polls, they expect us to come out second, and for me, I’m like: ‘I want the top spot.’ … My mindset is, ‘How many teams can we just come in and play our best volleyball against?’ I think it’s good for us. It gives you something to look forward to.” Iowa State has gone 13-3 in Big 12 play each of the past two seasons and has finished second both years behind Texas. The Cyclones’ last match took place last Saturday, Sept. 21, in which they defeated Iowa in Iowa City, earning a much-needed boost in both confidence and record before starting conference play. That match began in dominant fashion for Iowa State, winning the first set 25-11 before being more evenly matched by the Hawkeyes for remainder of the 3-1 victory. “It was huge; I think we learned a little bit more about ourselves in that game,” Hahn said. “We still have to

make sure that we can focus through three sets right away and play our best volleyball in the first three sets and not have that drop off. So we’re still just working on that.” Baylor is 8-8 this season and has won six of its last eight matches after starting the year 1-5. The Cyclones and Bears have been evenly matched historically, tied 18-18 all-time against each other. “I know traditionally what they do is attack very well out of the middle and typically pretty physical, good blocking team,” said ISU coach Christy Johnson-Lynch on Baylor. “I would guess we’ll see more of the same but a lot of it will be about what’s happening on our side of the net.” Iowa State has won each of its previous seven meetings with Baylor and will be going for No. 8 on Saturday afternoon at Hilton Coliseum. The match is set to begin at 4 p.m.

Five weeks into the college football season, Iowa State has found the win column. The Cyclones (1-2) enacted revenge against Tulsa (1-3) in Oklahoma with a 38-21 victory after having two bye weeks in the early part of the season. Thursday night’s game was the third matchup between the two teams in the last 13 months and came after Iowa State lost to Tulsa in the Liberty Bowl last December. Iowa State got on the board first when redshirt senior running back Jeff Woody found the end zone from 1 yard out. The touchdown came two plays after junior running back Aaron Wimberly ran for 35 yards, coming just short at the goal line. Woody had six carries for 12 yards in the win, and crossed into the end zone three times, becoming the first Cyclone since Ryan Kock in 2005 to accomplish the feat. Wimberly was the other hero in Iowa State’s victory, rushing for 137 yards on 19 carries, an average of 7.2 yards per carry. The 100-yard performance was the first by an ISU player since running back Shontrelle Johnson rushed for 122 yards against Tulsa in last year’s season opener. After Iowa State took an early lead in the first quarter, Tulsa scored two touchdowns in the second quarter to take a 14-7 lead. ISU quarterback Sam Richardson found wide receiver Jarvis West with 15 seconds left in the half to even the score.


6 Wide receiver Tad Ecby had a career-high six catches Thursday night.

12 Running back Jeff Woody had six carries for 12 yards and three touchdowns.

137 Number of yards running back Aaron Wimberly rushed for.

3 Fumble recoveries by the ISU defense against Tulsa. Iowa State also had an interception.

38 Number of points Iowa State scored against Tulsa, a season high for the Cyclone offense.

Tulsa quarterback Cody Green fumbled on just the second play of the third quarter, one of four turnovers by the Golden Hurricane offense, to give Iowa State an opportunity to take the lead. The Cyclones went on to score 17 consecutive points for a 31-14 lead before Tulsa closed the gap to 10 points when Green connected with wide receiver Thomas Roberson with 8:16 to play. Woody sealed the win when he scored for the third and final time with 1:48 remaining in the game. The win was Iowa State’s first since it beat Kansas last November. The victory also ended the Cyclones’ nonconference schedule with Big 12 play beginning next Thursday when Iowa State takes on Texas in Ames.

Women’s team focuses on youth for Roy Griak Invitational Coach hopes to see how new runners, top teams stack up By Ryan.Young The Roy Griak Invitational, hosted by Minnesota, is one of the largest collegiate cross-country meets in the country. The Griak will play host to 26 teams on Saturday, and the No. 26 ISU women’s cross-country team is one of them. “This is really a good opportunity for us to get our feet wet,” said team captain Maggie Gannon. “We’ve kind of been holding out, so now we can really see where we’re at and where we need to go from here.” This year marks the 28th running of the Griak. The meet was named after former Minnesota coach Roy Griak, who coached cross-country and track and field for 33 years, winning a number of Big Ten championships. Iowa State, which is coming off a second-place finish at the Black and Gold Invite, has yet to get all of its top runners on the course this season. “This is a really good op-

portunity for me to really see how good these girls are,” said ISU coach Andrea GroveMcDonough said. “We have kind of been in a bubble recently, with some of these girls having not run in a race yet, so I’ll be able to see how they stack up with the other top teams.” On Saturday, the team will be without senior captain Sam Bluske, who injured her foot last week in practice. While she is still unsure of the injury’s extent, Bluske is remaining positive. “I’m optimistic. I am bracing for the worst, but I’m trying to remain positive about it,” Bluske said. “But no matter what happens, I’m still going to support my team and help out in every way that I can.” The Cyclones will field a team of 11 runners Saturday, including Ejiro Okoro and Gannon, who finished fifth and sixth, respectively, at the Black and Gold Invite. This meet also marks the first for freshman Bethanie Brown, as well as four other underclassmen. With a younger team than usual this year, Bluske noted it is more important than ever for the younger runners to step up and grab an open spot.

Sophomore Margaret Gannon, second from right, races along with the pack in the distance medley at the Drake Relays on April 27 in Des Moines. The cross-country team has yet to field a team at full strength this season.

“What the young girls need to realize is that our top-four runners are really strong, but we need a good fifth runner,” Bluske said. “This is a good chance for them to do that. Our fifth through eighth girls need to step up.”

While Grove-McDonough has high hopes for the meet, her main focus remains on the younger runners. “I really want the younger runners to get used to the process,” Grove-McDonough said. “Most of these girls have never




seen a meet this big, or with this amount of quality competition before. It will be a big eye-opener for them, but I know that they will handle it well.” The Cyclones will hit the Les Bolstad Golf Course at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Cyclones face UNI invite ‘a little bit more relaxed’ Freshmen fight off nerves after first college tournament By Chris.Wolff

Haley Hochstetler/Iowa State Daily

Freshman forward Koree Willer, No. 2, and senior midfielder Meredith Skitt, No. 14, fight off an Iowa player during Friday night’s game in Iowa City. The Cyclones begin Big 12 play tonight against Texas Tech.

Team to lean on experience, youth Texas Tech brings Big 12 competition to ISU’s schedule By Beau.Berkley Soccer’s nonconference schedule has concluded, and now the road to the Big 12 tournament begins. The Cyclones (6-4) welcome No. 15 Texas Tech to the Cyclone Sports Complex on Friday at 7 p.m. They are hoping to have a reversal of fortune from last season and start the conference schedule with a win. Last season, Iowa State walked away from conference play with only one win under its belt, failing to reach the Big 12 tournament. Coming out prepared for not only Texas Tech, but every team, will be a big focus. “Each game in the league matters; each one is as equally important as the other. There’s not one that’s more important than the other, and there is a lot of parity in our league, and it’s

always been that way,” said ISU coach Wendy Dillinger. “It’s important that we come out strong [and] take advantage of our opportunities that we create.” Midfielder Meredith Skitt has been with the ISU program for four years and has yet to have a shot at a Big 12 title. Skitt, along with the seven other seniors on the team, is hoping this is the year they achieve their goal. “The past three seasons, that’s been our goal — to go to the Big 12 tournament — and we have yet to reach that,” Skitt said. “So I think that’s our major goal this year, but not only that, but to do well and finish in the top half of the conference.” Even with an experienced roster, the Cyclones still maintain a youthful squad. In addition to 13 upperclassmen, there are 12 freshmen and one sophomore on the team. Freshman Koree Willer is making her presence known early in the season. Through 10 games, Willer is second in goals with three and tied for second in assists with two. The player ahead of Willer

With seniors like Dominguez, making the transition to collegiate soccer has been smoother for Willer. “Just the leadership and having people to look up to is huge and has made coming here so much easier and just having that kind of sets an example for what we’ll have to do,” Willer said. As for first-game jitters, Willer feels the tough nonconference schedule has made her mentally prepared for conference play. “It’s kind of nerve-wracking, but I think getting to play teams like Stanford and Santa Clara was definitely helpful,” Willer said. “So I’m not necessarily going in not knowing what to expect because we have played high-caliber teams.”

The ISU women’s tennis team will continue its fall season this weekend at the UNI Invitational. For the second consecutive week, all eight team members will be in action and ISU coach Armando Espinosa expects his team to continue to improve. “I think now that everybody has a tournament under their belt, they should feel a little bit more relaxed,” Espinosa said. The Gopher Invitational was the first collegiate tennis experience for freshmen Samantha Budai, Lydia Green and Talisa Merchiers. The freshmen were able to fight off the nerves that came with their first career action as Budai and Green took home third-place finishes in the “U” flight and Gopher flight, respectively. Both Budai and Green lost to the eventual bracket champions before winning their third-place matches. “It went better than I thought,” Budai said of her first college tournament. “I was really nervous the first day, but after that, I kind of got use to everything.” Budai expects to play even better as she continues to gain collegiate experience. Espinosa was pleased with his team’s singles play but needs to see more improvement in doubles action. Doubles play has been a point of emphasis for the Cyclones throughout the fall season after struggling with doubles points last season. “I still want to see more [improvement in doubles play],” Espinosa said. “I don’t think we’re even close to knowing who is going to play with who. There is still a lot of things we need to get better at.” With all eight members competing this weekend, expect some new doubles matchups as Espinosa continues to look for the best combinations

Junior Ksenia Pronina returns the ball last season against West Virginia. Pronina is the top singles player for the Cyclones. She holds a 6-1 record and hopes to elevate her play as the season goes on.

for his team. Junior Ksenia Pronina suffered her first loss of the season in singles play against Minnesota’s Tereza Brichacova in three sets in the top flight championship match. Two weeks into the fall season, Pronina is 6-1 with a firstplace finish and a second-place finish. “I feel like I’m moving better on the court and dictating the point more,” said Pronina, whose expectations for herself continue to rise. “I know that I can not only keep up with the girls at that level, but I have a good chance to beat them.” Going into the UNI Invitational this weekend, the goal is the same as the previous two tournaments: just get better. With freshmen players continuing to gain experience and the team continuing to play around with doubles matchups, Espinosa simply wants to see the team continue to improve in preparation for the spring season. “Now that they know the expectations of what college tennis is about, I’m hoping that they can get a little bit better,” Espinosa said.

Andrew Luzum, junior in agricultural business, models his suit during the evening wear portion of the Mr. CALS pageant. The event was a fundraiser for future scholarships.

Brent Sexton, senior in animal science, competes in the Mr. CALS pageant, which included three modeling opportunities, including formal wear, calendar boys and dress your major.


“I think its going to be fun being all out and professionally dressed, showing that College of Ag guys aren’t just the hicks on campus. We’re more than that,” Kessler said before the competition started. Molly Foley, senior in agriculture and life sciences education and president of Sigma Alpha, said she hopes this event will help promote their name throughout campus, especially since their membership has drastically increased this year. “I think it would be awesome to create an annual event that people look forward too...and they want to attend whether they are in the College of Ag or just a student at Iowa state,” Foley said. “We would love to see it grow in years to come.” Foley said she believes the night was a success. Sigma Alpha raised $927.54 and 149 cans of food for their philanthropy, Central Iowa Shelter Services.

pedal tractor. “I dressed as a farmer, and we sell seed corn and the first thing that came to my mind was the pedal tractor and I decided to put a stereo in there to make it a little funner,” Messer said. Knupp, who is planning on farming back home and driving truck and coaching high school football, came out with three students dressed as pigs. “We sell pigs at home, and I love trucking so I wanted to incorporate that,” Knupp said. “The last event was your hobby, and that’s what I kind of have a passion for.” To be a part of this contest, participants had to fill out an application, said Chelsea Watkins, sophomore in diary science and Sigma Alpha chair of Mr. CALS. Each club in the CALS was allowed to send one representative, except for the two larger clubs, Brock and Bridle and Ag Business Club, which each had two representatives. Before contestants were able to compete in Mr. CALS competition, they had to be nominated by members of their club. Some even had to compete against other club members, including Mr. Congeniality, Messer. “We got nominated by people in the club to go up... and strut our stuff...and they voted on us,” Messer said. Messer said with two weeks to think, he had some good ideas ready for the competition. Andrew Luzum, junior in agricultural business and member of Ag Business Club, said he had to compete with other members as well by answering a question and showing his talent.

to start off and make sure I still keep in contact with faith, as well as make friends,” said Nicholas Meier, president of Campus Christian Fellowship, one of the 31 different religious groups on campus. Meier said he found being social was one of the best ways for him to keep his faith while going to college. “Just be active, be social and realize that you wanted to come to college as a freshman to meet friends; so getting

involved in church is one way to do that,” Meier said. Along with clubs and organizations on campus, there are several churches close to campus where students can attend religious services. Many of the churches near campus try to have services and small group meetings that are tailored toward college students to give them an opportunity to continue to grow in their faith. Most churches near the campus area offer

multiple different service times to try to accommodate the busy schedules of college students. Most churches have at least three different Sunday morning services, a Saturday evening service, and some even have services on Wednesday or Thursday night for those students who find themselves busy on the weekends. “Some churches and college ministries are very close to campus, making them pretty convenient,” Duvick said.

Nobody gets in trouble if you keep your mouth shut.” He also said he would not consider using a fake ID to buy alcohol. “I think at this point since I already have a provider and next year I’ll have that same provider plus more, I don’t think I’ll ever need [a fake ID],” Cody said.

The fine for having a fake ID is $195. “A lot of times a fake ID is going to get you more into trouble,” Arkovich said. “The issue with a fake ID is that you get cited for using that ID, and then we send that ID into the DOT and they suspend their license for a period of time.” Arkovich said the Ames Police charges minors with possession of alcohol much more than they charge for providing alcohol illegally. “We write a lot more [possession of alcohol under the legal age] citations than we do arrest or write citations for providing alcohol to minors,” Arkovich said. “That’s not saying that providing alcohol to minors isn’t happening all the time. ...
