State denies funding for engineering complex By Jeff Engel

Marquette’s unsuccessful state funding request for its proposed engineering center sparked debate among legislators last week over which private school projects, if any, deserve government aid. In a meeting last We d n e s d a y, the State of Wi s c o n s i n Building

Commission did not approve Marquette’s proposal for $10 million to help fund the first phase of construction for the $100 million Discovery Learning Complex. The request was backed by several legislators on the eightmember commission, including state Sen. Jeffrey Plale (D-South Milwaukee). However, Plale withdrew the Marquette proposal before it came to a vote because it lacked sufficient support, he said.

Had the commission approved the measure, it would have gone to the Wisconsin Legislature for consideration. Gov. Jim Doyle, who chairs the commission, voiced concerns that granting such a request to a private institution would subtract funding from Wisconsin public colleges and universities, according to

Illinois law follows students Underagers caught drinking can lose driver’s licenses By Michael Murphy

Underage drinking penalties for Illinois residents have become more severe than many people realize. One underage drinking citation by an Illinois resident while in any state will not just lead to a fine, but can also lead to a sixPhoto by Gabe Sanchez/ month suspension of Photo illustration by Gabe Sanchez// their driver’s license. Photo illustration by Lauren Stoxen/ According to Brenda

Glahn, attorney of the Driver Services Department for the Illinois secretary of state, as of Jan. 1, 2008, the penalty for one underage drinking conviction by an underage Illinois resident is six months, which is equivalent to receiving a DUI for someone who is of age. “It used to be if you were convicted of underage drinking you lost your drivers license for a period of one year and that was changed,” Glahn said. Glahn did not say whether she felt the law was appropriate, only that it is what they have been instructed to enforce. “We are following what the legislature has instructed us to do, which is to suspend the driver’s license of these minors that are caught drinking,” she said. “We are just perpetuating our statutory obligations.” According to Illinois attorney and Marquette alumnus Matt Morris, people seem to be very ill -informed about

Rise in Milwaukee domestic abuse Violence, homicides may be linked to economic hardship By Tony Dizinno

Numbers released by the Milwaukee Police Department indicate a dramatic rise in domestic abuse cases in the city, and an equally dramatic rise in homicides. Chief of Police Edward Flynn said the increase in abuse cases

may be a result of the global economic crisis. The economy’s effects have hit stressed families the most, Flynn said in a November meeting of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Anne E. Schwartz, communications director for MPD, said the impact of the declining economy would first be seen in stressed families. She said their stresses increase with financial uncertainty, resulting in increased domestic violence and child abuse. Now, MPD has released the numbers for first quarter 2009

that indicate how much impact the economy has on abuse cases and homicides. According to a study conducted by the Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission, 41 percent of total homicides have been due to family violence — either domestic violence or child abuse. Audrey Skwierawski, a spokeswoman for the Milwaukee Commission on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, said preventative measures for abuse need to be treated like health issues. See Abuse, page 9

this law, as he frequently gets calls from parents or younger people stating their surprise about the letter they just received from the Illinois secretary of state. “The way the law works is that if there is a law in the books, we are all presumed to know it. If our legislator enacts some goofy law and we know nothing about it, we are still charged with knowing that law,” Morris said. Another thing that often catches people off guard is that this Illinois law affects Illinois residents no matter where they are convicted. “States are getting better and better at communicating with each other,” he said. “There may be no sanctions in Wisconsin but suddenly Wisconsin sends that to Illinois and then Illinois suspends their license.”

DPS Reports Apr. 1 At 4:50 p.m., a 21-year-old female student reported that a person not affiliated with the university bought Milwaukee Brewers tickets from the student using a fraudulent money gram. The subject bought the tickets on Facebook and stated that he would send a money gram that would greatly exceed the cost of the tickets if the student could send the remaining money to a third party via Western Union. The student sent the remaining balance of $798 to the third party and paid a $66.99 fee for the wire transfer. The bank later discovered that the money gram was counterfeit, and returned it to the student. The Milwaukee Police Department was contacted and advised the student to report the scam to an ongoing federal investigation with U.S. postal inspection.

Apr. 4 At 12:43 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 1600 block of West Wells Street where a group of students was acting in a disorderly manner in front of The Dogg Haus. A 19-year-old male student, who was attempting to start a fight with another student inside the establishment, did not cooperate with officers. The student later admitted he had been drinking previously that night in O’Donnell Hall. DPS officers advised the student that drinking underage in the residence halls is prohibited. At 7:38 a.m., an employee reported that an unknown person vandalized a window in Sensenbrenner Hall by throwing a 4-inch diameter rock through a four-foot by four-foot double pane window. The estimated damage is $900. There are currently no suspects.

While ATSA primarily targets Marquette students and people in the Milwaukee area, Bender said the Spring Thaw provided ATSA a “chance for us to make a difference in young athlete’s lives.” Former Milwaukee Bucks player Jon McGlockin and radio announcer Eddie Doucette founded MACC in 1976. The organization has since contributed $33 million to pediatric cancer research. MACC receives most of its funds via special events such as Spring Thaw. MACC contributes the funds to the Midwest Children’s Cancer Center and Wisconsin’s Paul P. Carbone Comprehensive Cancer Center. Bender said the ATSA members feel passionate about giving back to the community. Spring Thaw “is just one way we can do that,” she said.

Plale called Marquette’s engineering center a “shovel-ready” project that could put construction crews to work this summer. He said the center could also increase the number of engineers in the long run. “This clearly serves a public need,” Plale said. While the failure to pass the proposal is “disappointing,” it will not kill the project, said Mi-

chael Switzenbaum, executive associate dean and a professor in the College of Engineering. “It is going to happen,” Switzenbaum said. “It just may take a little longer because of the economy.” The university planned to enact the $35 million first phase of construction through the potential $10 million in state funds, plus $25 million in private donations already received, Switzenbaum said. This initial stage would result in construction of an 80,000-square-foot building that

counterpart, Plale said the projects would complement each other. “A strength for one is a strength for the other,” Plale said. Despite recent funding setbacks, Wisconsin private colleges and universities have still fared well during the economic downturn, said Rolf Wegenke, president and CEO of the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, of which Marquette is a member. Many projects at private schools are moving forward,

such as construction of a new pharmacy school at Concordia University, Wegenke said. While the recession may necessitate budget cuts and more caution with construction, every private school in Wisconsin is focusing on increasing student financial aid, Wegenke said. In fact, financial aid was the only sector in schools that grew steadily during the previous recession after Sept. 11, he said. This is a tough time for private institutions, but Wegenke said they are a “confident group” overall.





MUSG finalizes median plan Senators discuss park acquisition By Tori Dykes

City officials presented finalized plans for the Wells Street median project at the April 2 Marquette Student Government Senate meeting. Senators viewed a sketch of what the median is anticipated to look like. Construction is expected to begin by April 20, said Ghassan Korban, the project manager from the Milwaukee Department of Public Works. The physical median is projected to be completed by around May 14, and landscaping will be completed about two weeks after that. Korban said bids ended up coming in much lower than the city had anticipated, largely because contractors are “hungry for bids� in the current economy. The project was originally estimated to cost $170,000, but in actuality will only cost about $152,000, Korban said in an interview.

Morris believes the punishment should fit the crime. He said since a car is not even an instrument in the crime, there are other ways that someone can be punished for underage drinking. “I think there should be some factual relation between the offense and the circumstances of the charge and the ability of the secretary of state to suspend their license,� he said. “If it has nothing to do with the use of a vehicle, it is overly punitive and I think there are many other ways to send the message for underagers not to drink.�

Marquette’s $75,000 share remains unchanged because the portions Marquette will be paying for were bid at an amount similar to what was expected, he said. The median will contain different kinds of narrow, tall trees and various shrubs and flowers, said city forestry landscape designer Scott Baran. Baran said he tried to create a blue and gold theme with the plants to reflect the university’s colors. Alderman Bob Bauman discussed how the city became involved in the project after former MUSG President Brock Banks and current Senate Parliamentarian Jimmy Schott initiated plans. “It took government affairs a little time to catch up to the students,� Bauman said. Bauman also said the university is still negotiating with the city to secure lease ownership of Norris Park, located on Kilbourn Avenue between 18th and 19th streets, for 25 years. If the lease is approved, the university would begin landscaping efforts this growing season in hopes of making the park usable by spring 2010, said university Kevin O’Brien, a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences, said he has seen firsthand how this law has only affected some, not all, of the people that it should. “I know so many people from Illinois who have gotten underage drinking tickets,� O’Brien said. “I have only seen one person get their license suspended. I just do not get how that is fair when they enforce it on some kids but not others.� O’Brien also said that he simply does not see the relevance. “I understand that Illinois is trying to scare kids away from drinking illegally,� he said. “But taking away a kid’s license is irrelevant and in a lot of cases kids have to quit their jobs because they need their car.�

architect Tom Ganey. Marquette has indicated it would be willing to make an investment in the park if it were allowed to have control over the property, Bauman said. The community would still be able to use the park, which has fallen largely into disuse. Marquette would have primary control over its use, he said. Bauman said some members of the Common Council may be uneasy about turning public lands over to a private university, but he said Marquette could take better care of the park based on the care it gives its own land. “I’d like to see Norris Park brought up to the same standards,â€? he said.

only be able to attend three more meetings before graduating. Matthew argued that the decision to elect seniors ought to be left up to student voters. But Senator Billy Doerrer, who sponsored the legislation, said students would end up with fewer choices if graduating seniors are elected since their vacancies are filled by respective college student councils. “It impairs the ability of the Senate to move forward,� said Doerrer, a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences. The amendment passed 23-6.

Tandez was previously the nursing senator for MUSG. Former Senator John Kristan and current Senator Shazia Ali, both juniors in the College of Arts & Sciences, also ran for the position. Kristan and Ali formerly ran on the same ticket for MUSG president and executive vice president, respectively.

New MUSG should strive for transparency In the Marquette Student Government presidential debate last month, both tickets promised more transparency within MUSG regarding communication with student media. Now that Henry Thomas and Stephanie Stopka have taken office, we strongly suggest the pair follow up on their pledge and reverse MUSG’s current communications policy. It’s difficult to make significant changes on campus in just one academic year, so time is of the essence. Fortunately, reversing the current policy, which was introduced by the Redlingshafer administration last year, will be an easy change with important results. Under the current policy, MUSG senators are directed to filter their contact with student media through the MUSG communications office. While senators are not punished for speaking freely with student media, the current policy has contributed to a contentious atmosphere between the two organizations. MUSG argues that the policy allows student government to best articulate its message. But MUSG senators shouldn’t parrot a uniform message. Senators — just like those in the state and federal government — are elected to represent the concerns of their constituents. Asking senators to adhere to such a policy misrepresents the essence of their job and feeds a mistrustful regard of media. Of course, senators can communicate with whichever aspects or members of student media they choose. But senators should always be allowed to make those decisions themselves. We admit we have a direct stake in this policy. The Tribune believes the newspaper does its best work when reporters and editors are given unfettered access to student government. The MUSG-student media relationship is intended to be a microcosm of the government-media interaction that plays out at the city, state and federal levels. Students with futures in media must develop the skills that will allow them to cover government in their future careers. Similarly, senators hoping to win elected office after graduation must learn to effectively communicate with journalists. The Tribune and other student media outlets are not out to get MUSG. But part of being elected to student government is opening oneself up to evaluation and critique. The Tribune’s news reporting seeks to provide unbiased coverage of MUSG’s policies, and our editorializing is meant to hold student government accountable for those actions. If senators or students believe we have failed in these endeavors, we invite anyone to submit their opinions to these pages. Unfortunately, in his first official MUSG meeting as president, Thomas failed to show he understands the consequences of retaining Redlingshafer’s communications policy. We are incredibly disappointed, and we remind Thomas that there is still time to keep his campaign promise. An open student government depends primarily on a trusting, respectful relationship between MUSG and student media. We hope the new administration follows through on its promise of transparency.

Volunteerism provides valuable experience Megan Hren So the job market sucks. Yes, we know this. But working without pay is always an option to pass the time if you’re having trouble getting hired. I’m talking about volunteering. Sound appealing after a $140,000+ education? Well, April is national volunteer month, and in light of this, the benefits of volunteering come to mind. In addition, volunteering presents an opportunity for those looking to gain work experience during this economic recession. In August, I will be a graduate of Marquette University entering the Jesuit Volunteer Corps for a

year. I made the choice to volunteer after graduation long before I knew the economy was going to hit bottom. However, I see that now more than ever is the perfect opportunity to pick up a volunteer job, whether you’re a freshman or a senior. In 1974, President Richard Nixon signed an executive order establishing April as national volunteer month. In the 35th April since then, it’s a good time to look at what has happened to volunteerism in America. Volunteering in America has increased greatly. According to the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), 60.8 million volunteers dedicated 8.1 billion hours of service to community organizations in 2007. In the ideal world, everyone would volunteer their time in some way. And most people do give a little of their time to others. However, interestingly, the

CNCS noted that when people I would say the most beneficial watch a little less TV, the amount activities I have been involved of volunteer work they perform in have been volunteering, and increases greatly. It I have found an noted that “adults overwhelming who have never During my time at amount of opvolunteered spend Marquette, I would say portunities to an average of 436 the most beneficial volunteer here. more hours per year activities I have been I know many watching TV than involved in have Marquette stuadults who vol- been volunteering, dents volunteer unteer, according and I have found an regularly, and I to Volunteering in overwhelming amount think the tone of America.” Adults of opportunities to volunteerism at from across the vol- volunteer here. this university unteering spectrum creates a healthcommitted similar ier and happier amounts of time to community both housework, shopping and other within the campus boundaries activities, but the variable most and throughout the Milwaukee closely related to the amount of area. time spent volunteering was time The CNCS recently released spent in front of the TV.

Turns out that research proves During my time at Marquette, that volunteering promotes indi-

vidual health as well. The report notes that “Those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer.” If unable to find a job, volunteering helps pass the time and is also a great resume builder. The Career Services Center encourages students to add volunteer experience to their resumes for a reason. Volunteering shows a giving spirit, work ethic and just plain old experience.

We learned from Tuesday’s “Here’s to you” column that Milwaukee is the drunkest, most segregated city in America, has the highest incarceration rates of black citizens, ranks second for police brutality and teenage pregnancies and has a higher infant mortality rate than [several] other countries. What we didn’t hear was a point. There was no punch line to this celebration of all that is wrong with Milwaukee. There were no suggestions of how we might address these very troubling problems. It is good to talk about our city’s shortcomings. But if our only response to this is to criticize without improving, to shake our heads in disgust without asking what can be done, we become as culpable as those that perpetuated these problems in the first place. There are many causes for concern in Milwaukee, but there are also many reasons to hope. A 2007 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article reported that an average of 34.4 percent of metro Milwaukee residents volunteered at least once a year from 2004 to 2006, compared with a national average of 28.1 percent. Another report said Wisconsin ranked 11th in the nation for volunteerism. Marquette students seem to take their call to service seriously. According to Laura Skaife, assistant dean for Community Service Programs, about 84 percent of Marquette students take part in community service and roughly 5,000 students engage in at least 20 hours of service per semester. Volunteerism alone surely will not remove Milwaukee’s high poverty and segregation rates. But, just as many small actions, words and injustices over the years contributed to the inequality our city faces today, so will many small actions, words and changes advance us to the place we need to be. We must be sure to follow every discussion we have about what is wrong with Milwaukee with a conversation about what we can do to make these wrongs right.

Deadly earthquake rattles central Italy More than 150 dead, 1,500 hurt

Students in Rome feel quake By Molly Newman

A car is covered with debris and rubble following a strong earthquake, in the village of Onna, central Italy, Monday.

L’AQUILA, Italy — Rescue workers using bare hands and buckets searched frantically for students believed buried in a wrecked dormitory after Italy’s deadliest quake in nearly three decades struck this medieval city before dawn Monday, killing more than 150 people, injuring 1,500 and leaving tens of thousands homeless. The 6.3-magnitude earthquake buckled both ancient and modern buildings in and around L’Aquila, snuggled in a valley surrounded by the snowcapped Apennines’ tallest peaks. It also took a severe toll on the centuries-old castles and churches in the mountain stronghold dating from the Middle Ages, and the Culture Ministry drew up a list of landmarks that were damaged, including collapsed bell towers and cupolas. See Quake, page 8

ROME — Although Monday’s earthquake devastated the area around L’Aquila, Italy, Marquette students studying in Rome are safe. Emily Kaitis, a Marquette junior studying at John Cabot University in Rome, said she felt the quake. “At first the room started vibrating, then it started violently moving back and forth,” she said. “I could see the buildings across from me getting closer and moving farther away.” Initially, Kaitis said she didn’t know what had happened. Then, her roommate’s mother, who was visiting and staying in a nearby hotel, called to make sure the Marquette roommates were alright. It was then Kaitis figured out it was a quake. Kaitis’ roommate, Cristina Feracota, a junior in the College of Business Administration, said she was restlessly sleeping and was suddenly

awakened by the shaking. “I felt like everything was moving and I was standing still,” she said. “I dozed back into sleep thinking I was dreaming and then my mom called at 3:44 a.m.” Feracota’s mother, Angela D’Aloia, said her hotel room began shaking and at first she thought it was a large truck on the street outside. She said she could see the key in the door swinging back and forth and felt that something was off. But others didn’t even know of the quake until morning. Erin Walsh, a junior in the College of Arts & Sciences, said she slept through the entire ordeal, even as roommates Feracota and Kaitis talked about the shaking. Feracota said she has been fielding concerned e-mails from family and friends all day, and is glad to be OK. None of the students were concerned for their safety. “I just hope that this is the last (earthquake),” Feracota said.

Summerfield United Methodist Church, 728 East Juneau Ave., is trying something new this year, said Jennifer Emert, associate pastor at Summerfield UMC. The service includes a full meal as part of the Eucharist, an interactive walkthrough of what happened that night, and a foot washing, she said. All of these elements are common in a Maundy Thursday service, because Jesus participated in those events, Emert said. At most Catholic parishes, a priest will wash the feet of a week parishioners as part of the Maundy Thursday mass, Caldwell said.

Boston College cancels Ayers’ controversial visit Safety concerns cited as reason By Matthew Reddin

Controversy erupted at Boston College last Monday after a speech by Bill Ayers was unexpectedly cancelled. Ayers was the co-founder of the Weather Underground, a radical organization that orchestrated numerous bombing attacks within the United States in protest of the Vietnam War. He is now an education professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

College, one of the lecture’s spon-

soring organizations, said they would “welcome a protest,” and added that the lecture in no way vindicated Ayers’ actions with the Weather Underground. “The idea of this event was not to praise or sanction what he has done in the past,” Madormo said. After the lecture was initially cancelled, Madormo and the other sponsoring organizations attempted to find an off-campus location, with no luck. They then suggested a videoconference with Ayers using Skype, but this was also cancelled by the university. Madormo said the university choosing to cancel the event because of safety concerns doesn’t make sense because they got clearance for the event from the

Boston College Chief of Police Robert Morse a week before the lecture was scheduled. Melissa Roberts, vice president of the College Democrats of Boston College, was also upset with the university’s reasoning. “If you’re saying that security isn’t good enough, that’s an insult to the security officers at Boston College,” Roberts said. In addition, Roberts pointed out that when Chelsea Clinton came to campus last year, security was organized within 48 hours. The lecture, titled “The State of Democracy in America: Education Reform and Civic Engagement,” was going to focus on See Ayers, page 8

Cindy’s Law to track offenders Ayers Domestic abusers to pay for equipment By Jack Kelly

A Wisconsin lawmaker proposed legislation requiring repeat domestic abuse offenders to wear a tracking device. The device would alert law enforcement officials when the offender violates the court order against him or her. As it is written, the offender would have to foot the bill, costing taxpayers nothing. The bill is known as “Cindy’s Law,” named after Cindy Bischof, an Illinois woman who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in March 2008. Cindy was shot outside her office. The boyfriend had been arrested and prosecuted twice for violating a restraining order. State Rep. Scott Suder (R-Abbotsford) helped draft the bill. “The intent is to give victims an immediate alert anytime an abuser violates their protective order,” Suder said. Under Cindy’s Law, victims

would carry a cell phone, pager or other device to warn them that the offender has breached the prohibited space, Suder said. “The moment they go near their victim, the victim is notified and law enforcement is notified,” Suder said. “So it’s a dual barrier.” Bischof’s cousin, Pamela Travis of Neillsville, Wis., said Bischof took every precaution to protect herself from her ex-boyfriend. “She used everything that she could use,” Travis said. “Every means that was available to protect herself and he was still able to get to her, from getting the restraining orders to hiding out. At her company Christmas party she even had security.” Though a tracking device may not have saved her cousin, Travis said she, along with the rest of their family and friends, is a definite advocate for the bill. “We don’t know for sure if it would have saved her, but it maybe would have made her aware that he was so close,” Travis said. “Maybe it’ll help someone else,” she said. “If it helps one person, that’s enough.” Alexis Moore, a domestic violence expert and radio show host, said she is hopeful that legislation

like Cindy’s Law will help deter offenders. “The use of GPS monitoring would definitely help to provide a victim with some protection,” Moore said. “And when it is a matter of life or death, some protection is always better than no protection at all.” If the bill passes, however, the job is not finished. Enforcement of the law will be what really matters, Moore said. “Cindy’s Law must be implemented properly and utilized to help save lives,” she said. A similar bill was unanimously passed in Illinois last year. Wisconsin’s version of the bill coincides with a recent report that 40 percent of Milwaukee’s homicides this year have been related to domestic violence. The bill includes language that would make the offender pay for all costs related to his or her tracking. The estimated cost of a tracking system is $200. Suder said it’s important to refrain from putting the burden on taxpayers. Suder said he does not anticipate any objections to the bill. “If someone wants to challenge it, bring it on,” he said.

what Ayers has done in education, rather than his political activities. Of interest was one of his educational theories, which Roberts said aligns with those of Boston College. “One of Ayers’ beliefs is that you have to educate the whole child, which is a lot like the Jesuit ideal ‘cura personalis,’ ” Roberts said. Instead of the speech, a forum on academic freedom was held. About 300 students and 20 faculty members attended, including the faculty members whose support was pulled by the university. Among the speakers were Ken Kersch, one of the faculty sponsors of the event, and a man who had intended to speak to Ayers about why he felt his methods of protesting the Vietnam war were necessary. The man’s son had

Quake Continued from page 6

The quake, centered near L’Aquila about 70 miles northeast of Rome, struck at 3:22 a.m., followed by more than a dozen aftershocks. Firefighters with dogs and a crane worked feverishly to reach people trapped in fallen buildings, including a dormitory of the University of L’Aquila where a half- dozen students were believed trapped inside. After nightfall Monday, rescuers found a scared-looking dog with a bleeding paw in the half-collapsed dorm. Relatives and friends of the missing stood wrapped in blankets or huddled under umbrellas in the rain as rescuers found pieces of furniture, photographs, wallets and diaries, but none of the missing. The body of a male student was found during the daylight hours. “We managed to come down with other students, but we had to sneak through a hole in the stairs as the whole floor came down,” said Luigi Alfonsi, 22, his eyes filling with tears and his hands trembling. “I was in bed — it was like it would never end as I heard pieces of the building collapse around me.” Elsewhere in town, firefighters reported pulling a 21-year-old woman and a 22-year-man from a pancaked five-story apartment building where many students had rented flats. Amid aftershocks, survivors hugged one another, prayed quietly or tried to call relatives. Residents covered in dust pushed carts of clothes and blankets that they had thrown together before fleeing their homes. Slabs of walls, twisted steel supports, furniture and wire fences were strewn in the streets, and gray dust was everywhere. A body lay on the sidewalk, covered by a white sheet. Residents and rescue workers hauled debris from collapsed buildings by hand or in a bucket brigade. Firefighters pulled a woman covered in dust from her four-story home. Rescue crews demanded quiet as they listened for signs of life from inside. RAI television showed rescue workers gingerly pulling a man clad only in his underwear from a crumbled building. He embraced one of his rescuers and sobbed loudly as others placed a jacket around his shoulders. Although shaken and covered in dust, the man was able to walk.

been wounded in one of Ayers’ bombing attacks. “The forum was just a way for people who were frustrated to speak out,” Roberts said. It is unclear at this point whether Ayers will be invited back to Boston College in the future. Roberts said there would be a full-page ad in the April 15 issue of the Heights, asking the administration how long it would take to be prepared for Ayers to come to campus, so they could reschedule the event for the day afterwards. Rombalski said Ayers could speak again as long as there was an educational reason for his presence, and he wasn’t brought back just because his speech was cancelled. “The first step is asking ‘Why do you want to bring him?’ ” Rombalski said. If an educational reason could be found, he said, then plans could be made to bring him back. Ayers could not be reached as of press time. Some 10,000 to 15,000 buildings were either damaged or destroyed, officials said. L’Aquila Mayor Massimo Cialente said about 100,000 people were homeless. It was not clear if his estimate included surrounding towns. Premier Silvio Berlusconi said in a TV interview that more than 150 people were killed and more than 1,500 were injured. He had already declared a state of emergency, freeing federal funds for the disaster, and canceled a trip to Russia. The quake hit 26 towns and cities around L’Aquila. Castelnuovo, a hamlet of about 300 people southeast of L’Aquila, appeared hard hit with five confirmed dead. The town of Onno, population 250, was almost leveled. Pope Benedict XVI prayed “for the victims, in particular for children,” and sent a condolence message to the archbishop of L’Aquila, the Vatican said. Condolences poured in from around the world, including from President Barack Obama. Parts of L’Aquila’s main hospital were evacuated due to the risk of collapse, and only two operating rooms were in use. Bloodied victims waited in corridors or a courtyard, and many were being treated in the open. A field hospital was being set up. Though not a major tourist destination like Rome, Venice or Florence, L’Aquila boasts ancient fortifications and tombs of saints. Many Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance landmarks were damaged, including part of the red-and-white stone basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio. The church houses the tomb of its founder, Pope Celestine V - a 13th-century hermit and saint who was the only pontiff to resign from the post. The bell tower of the 16thcentury San Bernardino church and the cupola of the Baroque Sant’Agostino church also fell, the ministry said. Stones tumbled down from the city’s cathedral, which was rebuilt after a 1703 earthquake. “The damage is more serious than we can imagine,” said Giuseppe Proietti, a Culture Ministry official. “The historic center of L’Aquila has been devastated.” Proietti said in a telephone interview that reports from the countryside showed many villages around L’Aquila had been heavily damaged, including churches “of great historical interest.” The last major quake in central Italy was a 5.4-magnitude temblor in October 2002.



Abuse Continued from page 1

“This issue is a spectrum,” Skwierawski said. “The theory is that violence should be dealt with like a health epidemic. We need to use a healthcare model, with a heavy emphasis on prevention.” Meghan Stroshine, assistant professor of sociology, agreed the economy was a major contributor to the rise in homicides. “This economy is hitting lowincome families the hardest,” Stroshine said. “When there are

economic hardships, we will see a rise in domestic homicides. Economic and social stress is so great with abuse and violence.” Flynn and Mayor Tom Barrett participated in a teleconference last Thursday. They discussed the crisis and methods to address the increase of abuse cases. They agreed substantive measures need to be taken to prevent further cases from occurring. “We are sounding the alarm,” Flynn said. There have been 17 homicides in the city of Milwaukee this year and seven of them are a result of domestic abuse.

The Marquette Tribune*

“I can put cops on the dots where crime occurs but I can’t put them inside homes to deter family violence,” Flynn said. “Public safety is not a spectator sport and we need the community to share resources and to watch out for one another.” Last year there were 71 homicides, which was the lowest number in ten years. Of those 71 homicides, 15 were due to family violence. Barrett warned families to take precautionary measures to ensure these abuse cases do not escalate further. “Families need to take a step back before tragedy strikes,” Barrett said in the teleconference.

TRIBUNE Every year since 1999 there had been more than 100 cases, with the exception of 2004 when there were only 88, the study said. The study said 24 percent of this year’s homicides related to domestic violence have adult victims. That number has never been higher than 13 percent in the last 10 years. Skwierawski said the offenders in these cases need as much help for preventative measures as the victim. “These problems are deeply engrained in the offender, as they are behavioral and won’t change overnight,” Skwierawski said. “We apply that same model to offenders


and offer that support to stop their behavior. For those who have experienced being the abuser, they need to heal as well.” Stroshine said there were ways to better help both victims and batterers. “What we need is to provide more and better services,” Stroshine said. “The only way they receive treatment is through the criminal justice system. We need a better intervention program.” Three of the 17 homicides this year are of children, the study said. There were two child deaths at this time last year and zero in 2007.

to join in a watch, said Debra Trakel, rector of St. James Episcopal Church, 833 W. Wisconsin Ave. People can spend time in prayer and keep watch like the disciples in a room decorated like the Garden of Gethesmane, she said. Good Friday For Catholics, Good Friday is a day of silence as well as a fast day when abstinence from meat is required, Caldwell said. In the Lutheran Church, Good Friday is historically observed without communion, but some churches today do partake in the Eucharist, Hoffmann said. Willie said Lutherans usually observe Good Friday with a Tenebrae or Tre Ore service. Catholic churches also have these services, Caldwell said. The Tre Ore service is a three hour service that traditionally lasts from noon to 3 p.m., when Christ is believed to have been on the cross, he said. During this time people are supposed to pray, Caldwell said. The Tenebrae service is an ancient service of darkness where candles are periodically extinguished to represent the slow death of Jesus, Willie said. Catholics started this service and continue to follow it, Caldwell said. Some Methodist churches

have a Tenebrae service Good Friday while others have a joint service on Thursday, said Barry Bryant, associate professor at Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary. At the end of the service the altar is stripped, the cross is covered, there are no visible symbols of Chrisianity, and the church is dark, he said. “For that brief moment, you get a glimpse into a world without a resurrection,” Bryant said. “I’ve always found that a particularly moving service.” Easter Vigil The Easter Vigil for Catholics is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus, Caldwell said. Many Old Testament passages that look forward to the resurrection are read. then the Scriptures are fulfilled, he said. The Catholic service begins with one lit candle that all the other candles are lit from, said Caldwell. This symbolizes Christ giving life to everyone, he said. For the Catholic Church, the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday is a time for nonmembers to be baptized and for those already baptized to join the Church, Caldwell said. It recalls baptism for everyone, he said. Episcopalians celebrate the Easter Vigil in a similar way, said Trakel. Lent provides a time for people who want to be Episcopalian to learn about the Church and join, she said.

Goalkeeper Matt Pyzdrowski guessed wrong on this Wisconsin-Milwaukee penalty kick in the Bob Summy Memorial game Saturday. After Anthony Colaizzi missed his shot, Pyzdrowski made a crucial save to keep Marquette alive. However it wasn’t enough, and the Panthers went on to win.

More than just a soccer game Local teams meet to honor Summy By Nick Bullock

Decimated by injuries in this young spring season, the Marquette men’s soccer team rolled on for a good cause Saturday evening. The team was forced to cancel

its 9 a.m. game against Wisconsin-Parkside Saturday because of a slew of recent injuries, but the Golden Eagles kept their commitment with Wisconsin-Milwaukee to play in the Bob Summy Memorial Game. The event, which took place at Shorewood High School, is in its third year and is held in honor of Bob Summy, a longtime advocate and friend of both teams. Summy passed away in 2005. “Our game, the college game,

soccer in general needs people like that to get behind a program, and he did,” associate head coach Stan Anderson said. “No matter how small or great someone like that does get involved and get behind and support, we need to embrace people like that, and sadly we lost him.” Marquette’s original plan to play in two matches was re-evaluated when the coaching staff became concerned with the alarming number of players that have

caught the injury bug. Starting freshman defender Paul Monsen (ankle), oft-injured sophomore Scott Miller (ankle), junior goalkeeper Keenan Flynn (ankle), junior defender Tim Jallow (mono) and senior Dan Addis (knee), who missed the entire fall season, were all relegated to the bench. Despite the injuries, the team held off UW-Milwaukee for 90 minutes before falling in penalty See Summy, page 13

New coach, new players, new scheme MU adjusting to spring adversity By Paul Thorson

The Marquette women’s volleyball team is getting ready to wrap up its spring season — if it can be called an actual season. The campaign began on March 28 and will wrap up Thursday night when Marquette faces crosstown rival Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The Golden Eagles have played in two tournaments this spring compiling a 5-6 record, including a victory against UW-Milwaukee last weekend in the Great Lakes Center Collegiate Tournament. “I think now we’re not so much focusing on our record, but rather how we’re playing,” junior Hailey Viola said. “I think the main thing right now is just really finding a way to be consistent.” New head coach Bond Shyman-

said. “It’s a very creative offense and we can do a lot of different things.” Another newcomer to the lineup this spring has been freshman Holly Mertens, who is seeing time at right side hitter. “Holly’s been great, and she’s also been playing back row,” Viola said. “She has a great arm swing, so she’s able to swing before the blockers get a chance to set up.” If Mertens is able to hold down that position, it would give Marquette an experienced pair of middle hitters in sophomore Becka Gonyo and freshman Tiara Russell. Both spent much of the fall season at middle hitter. Whether Marquette finishes its spring season with a win Thursday or not, the team is starting to get a feel for what the fall season could bring. “Everything that we’re learning is so new, and I think having to come in in the spring has helped a lot,” Klingsporn said.

Last week, I stated that next season’s Marquette men’s basketball team would not regress as much as some may think. Since the statement came in the form of a four-question debate, I only had room for a 70-word response, which is not nearly enough. So let me give the extended version: Lazar Hayward was one of the most, if not the most underrated player in the Big East this season. It’s really not surprising considering who surrounded him; Dwight Burke casts a long shadow. The reality is Hayward was one of only two players — Notre Dame’s Luke Harangody being the other — to end the season top10 in the Big East in both scoring (10th with 16.3 points per game) and rebounding (seventh with 8.6 rebounds per game). All year long, the junior proved to be a match-up problem for every team Marquette faced. Those 8.6 boards and his point percentage of 35.8 were the reason the Golden Eagles’ small-ball approach was so successful. “That fourth guy on the perimeter, it’s the only way you can create space really,” DePaul coach Jerry Wainwright said after Hayward dropped 16 points and 17 rebounds against his Blue Demons on Jan. 24. “I watched (Hayward) against Providence … he was fundamental in winning the game by making threes in the corner.” Another guy that will ease the departure of the “Big Three” is Jimmy Butler. After surprising everyone (including his coach) with his improvement over the course of the season, the swingman will now enter his junior year as one of Marquette’s key contributors. It’s unclear whether coach Buzz Williams thinks Butler’s consistent production warrants a staring job next season. But judging by the 55 minutes he received in two NCAA Tournament games this season, I think it is a safe bet that he will see big minutes no matter if he is coming off the bench or not. Butler said he plans to work extensively on his jump shot during the off-season. The rest of his game is already sound enough where if he holds true to his word, and can improve enough as an outside shooter to at least keep defenses honest, he could very well be in line for a breakout season. The rest of the Marquette lineup is a bit more ambiguous. And by a bit, I mean a lot.

The lighter side of sports with Eric Grover In dripping-with-irony news, three members of the Oregon Ducks men’s basketball team were detained at gunpoint last Monday at a local park. Responding officers found the players shooting BB guns … at ducks. Oh boy. Ducks vs. ducks. Someone at PETA is probably vomiting with rage over this. Freshmen Josh Crittle, Michael Dunigan, and Teondre Williams all face misdemeanor illegal hunting charges, but do not risk jail time. Oh, freshmen — always avoiding jail time. Hey, I get it. Hunting one’s own species is playing the world’s

kicks. Marquette defeated UW-Milwaukee in the Milwaukee Cup on Oct. 22, but the team had its hands full Saturday playing just 11 men. “We’ve caught a little bit of a bad streak of guys catching little injuries and what not,” sophomore Matt Stummer said. “We were very happy that everyone is now on the mend — hopefully.” The game went scoreless, with-

out either team getting a good opportunity until a UW-Milwaukee shot was stopped by Marquette keeper Matt Pyzdrowski and the rebound rolled right to the Panthers’ D.J. Alexander, who knocked it in for a 1-0 lead. The Golden Eagles didn’t get many looks at the net until the second half when sophomore midfielder Anthony Colaizzi began sending cross after cross from the left side directly in front of goal. Finally, Colaizzi hit junior forward Nick Kay in front of the net for the tying goal. Colaizzi continued his barrage of spot-on passes but to no

most dangerous game. Except the ducks can’t really fight back as they lack the opposable thumbs needed for grasping firearms. So it’s a little one-sided. Well, maybe they could fly up and claw you or something. Now if those Ducks were shooting at a golden eagle, it would be a totally different story. First, the golden eagle would use its 80-inch wingspan to cover the sun and shroud the helpless Ducks in darkness. Then it would swoop in and attack their eyes with its razor sharp talons, because the eyes are like the groin of the face. Once the mighty golden eagle had rendered the Ducks blind and helpless, it would grab the guns and donate them to charity because it likes to give back to the community. Noble creature, the golden eagle.

avail as defender Michael Alfano launched one shot over the net and junior midfielder Tom Lynn sent another shot wide right. With neither team able to break the tie, the game went to penalty kicks. Pyzdrowski, of course, would have preferred the win but said he loves penalty kicks. “I just love thriving at the big moments,” he said. “Having that opportunity to come up with the big save … if you’re a goalkeeper, if you make one save and you win, you’re the hero.” Both teams made their first three shots, before Colaizzi stepped up and missed wide right.

Briefs Women’s Soccer The Marquette women’s soccer team kicked off its spring season Saturday in St. Louis with a pair of draws. The first match against the Saint Louis Billikens ended in a 0-0 draw despite Marquette’s 14-1 shooting advantage. Following the first draw, the Golden Eagles faced off against the Kansas Jayhawks. Although a little less lopsided, the game also ended in a draw. Kansas struck first at the seven-minute mark, but Marquette sophomore Lauren Acree wasted little time tying things back up, scoring in the eighth minute on a pass from freshman Danielle Martens. Marquette again out shot its opponent — this time 18-6 — but had difficulty converting on many of those opportunities. The game ended in a 1-1 draw. Next up for the women will be Stephen F. Austin and Texas A&M on Apr. 17 in College Station, Texas. Men’s Tennis The Marquette men’s tennis team enjoyed an outstanding road trip this past weekend with a pair of 7-0 victories over Villanova and Georgetown. The team now stands at 15-6 for the season. It all started Friday in Virginia as the team jumped out to a quick lead, taking the doubles point 8-5 through the strength of No. 1 duo Niko Boulieris and Trent Hagan. The team then dominated the singles competition, only dropping a single set in all six matches. The Golden Eagles did it again on Sunday, sweeping Villanova in Pennsylvania 7-0. Once again, the team swept the doubles portion before only losing one sinPyzdrowski then kept Marquette in contention by tipping the next Panther attempt. Another player from each team sank their shot before Kay’s attempt was deflected by the UWMilwaukee keeper and bounced off the left post. The Panthers sealed the victory with a chip shot that floated past Pyzdrowski. “Obviously, this time it didn’t go so well,” Pyzdrowski said. “But I think overall the game was a success for us. We struggled at one thing and that was putting the ball in the back of the net.”

gles set. Picking up a couple of singles wins on the weekend were Hagan, Dusan Medan, Boulieris, Mark Rutherford and Jonathan Schwerin. Stephen Shao and Drake Kakar also scored wins for the Golden Eagles. The team wraps up its regular season with an extended trip to sunny Florida. Marquette will play against Central Florida April 10 and South Florida on April 13 before contending in the Big East Championship in Tampa, Fla. from April 16-19. Women’s Tennis The Marquette women’s tennis team dropped a pair of extremely tough matches this weekend in Chicago, Ill. The losses bring the team record to 15-8 on the year. The Golden Eagles started their weekend with a match-up against No. 39 DePaul. Despite a strong effort, the team lost 7-0. The sole victory of the day came from No. 3 doubles, where the sister duo of Rachael and Gillian Hush were able to pull off an 8-6 victory over the Blue Demons’ Kirsten Gambrell and Sandra Zmak. Kylie Moore was able to take her match to three sets but ultimately lost, 6-7, 7-6, 1-0. The next day didn’t get any better, as Marquette ran into No. 3 Notre Dame. Outmatched and overpowered, the team was shut out by the Fighting Irish 7-0 and failed to pick up a single set. The Hush sisters almost pulled off another upset at No. 3 doubles but botched the ending, 8-6. The Golden Eagles look to close the regular season on a more positive note with a match against Stetson on April 13. It will be the last stop for Jody Bronson’s squad before the Big East Conference Tournament held April 16-19, in Tampa, Fla.

spot. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound junior has a scorer’s mentality but is capable of manning the point at times, Williams said. My guess is that Maurice Acker will be named the team’s starting point guard to begin the season, but it won’t be long before freshman Junior Cadougan steals the job. Incoming freshman Erik Williams looks to be Butler’s biggest competition to start at the three, and fellow recruit Jeronne Maymon, along with current sophomore Joseph Fulce, will likely see considerable time at the four-spot while Hayward continues to play the five. I would say Chris Otule and Liam McMorrow — true centers — might steal some of those minutes, but I think Williams proved this season that he will opt for talent at a particular position over adhering to traditional size expectations. Honestly, I don’t see too much difference between next year’s team and the 2005-’06 team that finished 20-11. In case you don’t remember, that was the Steve Novak-led squad that had the “Big Three” average 28.6 minutes per game as freshmen. Both teams will have an established senior that played a lesser role on a talented team, both will have an impressive group of new players and both have relatively low expectations put upon them. Well, not by me.






Ten Questions with Coach Grogan -As told to Pete Worth

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

You played golf in college at UNLV and also professionally. What are the strengths and weaknesses of your game? I’ve always been pretty good with my short game, a pretty decent putter and pretty good with wedge shots. When I played it was different. You can see on our team it’s a bunch of 6-foot-5 guys. Length wasn’t as big a deal as it is now; there was more of a premium on accuracy. Who were your favorite golfers growing up and which ones do you like now? I guess over the years, when I was growing up (Jack) Nicklaus was at the end of his prime, and (Tom) Watson was right in the middle of his. I liked Curtis Strange a lot, Fred Couples and now it’s hard not to like Tiger Woods. Will Tiger take the Masters this weekend? He’s the favorite every year — it’s almost 2-to-1 odds, really. The local guy (Steve) Stricker has played well all year but just hasn’t closed it out. Besides them, no one else really pops out. Were you involved in any sports besides golf? Most definitely — baseball. Baseball was my favorite sport. I played that all growing up until golf took over. I really enjoyed pitching because there’s a lot of strategy involved. The body mechanics of pitching and throwing a baseball are very similar to swinging a golf club. What is your biggest contribution as a coach? I think just because I’ve been through their experience — UNLV was top-10 program at the time — I kind of know what it takes to play well. It takes a lot of time and effort, and I don’t believe that all the kids that come through understand how much effort it takes to be really good. Do you think Marquette has been changed into a golf school in the 18 years you have been here? Our first goal starting with the program was to get the best players out of Wisconsin each year. That’s still the goal, but now there are good players everywhere. I think we need to branch out of the Midwest and even (recruit) international players. Ireland has done a great job with their players, England is good and Swedish players are good, but I’d like to start here first. Do you think you’ll ever coach another player like All-American Mike Van Sickle? Ever is a long time. But I think it shows you that a player can come to Marquette and play at a high level. I think what Mike’s done has opened the door for players to come after him and play here and play at a high level. I think Marquette was a good place for him and we’re very fortunate that he came here. You led the team to the Big East Championship last season. Can you describe your feelings after the win? It was our clear-cut goal. It was just a sense of accomplishment that it was clearly what we wanted to do, and then we went out and did it. That doesn’t always happen. You’ve won a number of tournaments and two Big East Coach of the Year awards. What has been your biggest achievement as Marquette golf coach? Just the program overall. I really believe that the program gets better every single year. When we started we had zero scholarships. I just look at whole program and how it’s got better — we got an indoor practice area we didn’t have, we play the best golf courses in Southeastern Wisconsin, and now we’re able to get the top one or two players out of Wisconsin every year. What’s made you stay at Marquette for so long? We keep getting better. If there reaches a time when I don’t think the program is getting better — maybe our results may be off and our team score might be down — but as long as I feel the program and everything we’re doing is getting better, then I’m excited about it, and want to keep doing it.

Duke Invitational a bump in the road for Marquette So-so performance sets up home meet

By Eric Grover

After getting off to a fast start this outdoor season, the Marquette track and field team suffered a hiccup this weekend with a lacking performance at the Duke Invitational in Durham, N.C. Enveloped in a talented field of over 50 colleges and universities, Marquette displayed some promise and effort, but failed to crack the top three finishers in any event. "I thought we competed hard

and got after it, but it just didn't come," coach Bert Rogers said. "I don't read too much into it. I think we're still on the right path." Rogers said that occasionally the team can get lost in previous success and training. "Sometimes you have those periods during your season where you hit the ground running — then we're working on training and we funnel (our efforts) into the latter half of the season," he said. "So the way our workouts have been going, it's not entirely surprising we didn't run and jump quite as well this weekend. But we still had some very good performances." Highlighting the weekend for the Golden Eagles were several

Big East qualifying marks and personal records. Sophomore Tyler O'Brien grabbed a couple of qualifiers including a fifth-place finish in the 200-meters. His time of 10.91 in the 100-meters remains a half-second behind the school record, but O'Brien said he knows where he needs to improve. "It's all about my start," O'Brien said. "My start is really holding me back in the 100-meters. If I can get it together, I can get closer. That 100 record would be pretty awesome." O'Brien also ran the 4x400 relay with teammates Tom Cassady, Randey Fisher and Michael O'Brien. Their 3:19.09 time was good enough for fourth place, but

in many ways was symbolic of the mediocre day for Marquette. "A lot of people (on the team) were kind of disappointed with how we did," Michael O'Brien said. "They weren't bad performances, but it's not what we were expecting or hoping to get." After the success of Jayne Grebinski in the steeplechase last weekend, several more Marquette women met Big East qualifying marks in the event. Leading the way for the team was Kate Horan, whose strategical changes produced a ninth-place finish. "I just went out a little faster than normal with some of my teammates and just tried to hold on," Horan said. "And so when I hit (the Big East mark), I was just

really excited and happy." Hampered by leg injuries that have limited her training over the week, high jumper Erynn James still managed to take fourth with a jump of 1.65 meters. "It's not about placing," James said. "I was disappointed with how I did. I wish I could've done better." The team hopes to pick itself out of the doldrums with its home meet this Friday at Valley Fields. The dual meet will pit Marquette against cross-town rival Wisconsin-Milwaukee. "This weekend is going to be more about competing than chasing marks," Rogers said. "It's about tasting that competition and beating the person next to you."
