Engineering offers classes to kids 3-day workshop ends tomorrow By Jeff Engel

A smile lights up Charlee’s face as she starts talking about engineering. She is only 13 years old, but the seventh grader is already set on becoming a biomedical or mechanical engineer. “I like taking stuff apart,” said Charlee, a student at the Milwaukee Academy of Science. “Knowing I can make the future better is exciting.” This week, Charlee and about 20 other students are spending three days of their spring break attending robotics classes offered by Marquette’s College of Engineering Outreach Program. The students, ages 8 to 18, are working with LEGO Mindstorms RCX and NXT robots, and programming them to navigate obstacle courses and accomplish physical tasks. The program began in the summer of 2006 with six courses and 64 students, said Lori Stempski,

an office associate in the College of Engineering. The number of programs and attendees has increased each successive year. This school year, the program expanded to 30 sessions held year-round. The year’s attendance could reach 500 students by the end of the summer, Stempski said in an e-mail. The program’s growth during its first four years has exceeded expectations, said Jon Jensen, associate dean for enrollment management in the College of Engineering. “That’s been gratifying for us,” Jensen said. Jensen started the outreach program with Jack Samuelson, a former high school science teacher in Waukesha. Samuelson served as a private consultant until being made outreach coordinator last June. Besides offering courses on campus, the program involves visits to local schools, workshops for local teachers and engineering conferences, Samuelson said. The college makes no profit from the “self-sustaining” See Engineer, page 2

Leading up to last year’s inaugural Reel Poverty Film Festival, former Marquette student Kurt Raether spent about a month visiting different soup kitchens and filming the stories of the people he met. Instead of presenting a documentary full of statistics, Raether said he “really wanted to get the stories of the people.” Raether, now a sophomore film major at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, won first place in last year’s film festival for his depiction of hunger and homelessness. Similar films will be center stage during tonight’s Reel Poverty Film Festival at the Union Sports Annex from 7 to 10 p.m. The free festival is part of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, sponsored by Midnight Run. The event will feature four student-filmed pieces ranging from five to 10 minutes long, said Mandi Davis, a junior in the College of Education who helped plan the festival. The films are centered on homelessness and poverty in Milwaukee, but student filmmakers chose how to address the subject matter. So the films will not necessarily all be shot in the style of a straight documentary, said John Ross, one of the festival organizers and a sophomore in the College of Engineering. “We’re trying to make a connection with people through the videos,” Ross said. “Once you see these stories, these problems become a lot more apparent.” There will be additional presentations between the films, including a performance by a choir from Repairers of the Breach, a shelter and homelessness outreach center, as well as poetry readings from a man who used to be homeless, Davis said. The combination of student films and performances from members of Milwaukee’s homeless community “gives people more of a complete view” of homelessness and poverty, Davis said. The festival will also feature a display of photographs submitted as part of a contest sponsored by Hunger Clean-Up, said Megan Heinen, co-chair of the Hunger Clean-Up fundraising committee See Reel, page 3

Six-Day Forecast














DPS Reports April 13 At 6:46 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 1500 block of West Wells Street. The officers observed a man speaking with two 20-yearold male Marquette students, who walked away as the officers approached. When the officers asked the man if he was asking the students for money, the man claimed he was just asking for directions, and he left the scene. After the man left, the two students returned to speak with the officers. One student said he gave the man, who used the name “Pastor Dave” as an alias, $25 because he said he needed to fix his van, and the other student gave the man $30.

The man was eventually located and taken into custody by the Milwaukee Police Department. He was issued a citation for theft and was advised to stay off university property. April 14 At 11:03 a.m., a 19-year-old female student reported that an unknown person vandalized her secured, unattended 2009 Volkswagen Passat in the 800 block of West Michigan Street. The subject used a brick to smash the vehicle’s rear tailgate window, causing an estimated $400 in damage. There are currently no suspects, and MPD was contacted.

Massage-A-Thon ends Friday Program finishes after a month-long run By Dan Kraynak

Whether it’s your muscles aching from another long Milwaukee winter or end-of-the-year stress, the solution could be right on campus. The final two days of MassageA-Thon are today and tomorrow, after the event began in March. Physical therapy students will hold sessions from noon to 9 p.m. today and from noon to 6 p.m tomorrow on the third floor of the Schroeder Health Complex. Sharon Cameron, a second year professional in the physical therapy program and Massage-A-Thon chair, said the annual studentrun fundraiser has been going on seemingly “forever.” “It’s been around for a long time. We don’t even know how long it’s been,” Cameron said. The Massage-A-Thon offers massages that cost $7 for 15 minutes, $14 for 30 minutes, $21 for 45 minutes or $28 for an hour.

“You can get anything you want massaged. It’s very professional,” Cameron said. “And you can either make an appointment online or just come up to the third floor of the Schroeder Complex and sign up in person.” But for those who want to get in and out quickly, Cameron suggests making an appointment in advance because the Massage-AThon is always busy. “We probably do between 50 and 100 massages a day,” Cameron said. “We have six tables going at once and we’re usually booked.” Cameron said most students and faculty members who get massages choose to have a 30- to 60-minute session because the cost is so low. “Hour massages anywhere else are at least $50 to $70,” Cameron said. “And I’ve gone to places where hour massages cost hundreds of dollars. But here it’s only $28.” According to Cameron, money raised by the Massage-A-Thon goes toward expenses for the graduation ceremony for physical therapy students, who have a separate graduation from the College

of Health Sciences. Jeffery Davis, a physical therapy lab supervisor, took part in the Massage-A-Thon yesterday by purchasing a half-hour massage. “I do it every spring and fall,” Davis said. “It always seems to help, and it feels good.” Davis said he prefers getting his massages at the Massage-A-Thon as opposed to other places that offer massages — not just because the cost is lower. “Sometimes with massage therapists you never know what you’re going to get, but with the students here, it’s always steady and they do a really good job.” Alex Wilke, a sophomore in the College of Business Administration, got massages at the MassageA-Thon before big exams this year and last year. “I only go for a massage once a year, and I try to make sure it’s on a day when I have a big test,” Wilke said. “It really relaxes me, and I think that helps when I’m nervous.” Cameron said massages not only relax the body, but also promote better posture, improve flexibility and increase blood flow to the areas of the body being worked on.

“We want to make sure the community is aware of the contributions engineers make and the opportunities available to kids,” Samuelson said. Another goal of the program is to enhance the science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills of American students, which lag behind those of foreign countries, Samuelson said. The United States only graduates about half of the engineers needed, he said. “The key is getting kids interested (in engineering) at a young age,” Samuelson said. “If we can get kids curious and keep it going, hopefully we can produce all the engineers we need.” The program also serves as a recruiting tool for the college, Samuelson said. “We want to identify and bring

in the best and brightest engineers to Marquette,” Samuelson said. Attendees of the college’s outreach programs normally hail from the Milwaukee area, but the summer sessions attract students from as far away as Arizona, Samuelson said. Nearly 20 current freshman engineering students have participated in the programs. Another four or five former participants might attend Marquette next fall, Jensen said. Lauren Adrian, a freshman in the College of Engineering, attended a program at Marquette the summer before her senior year at Cedarburg High School. At the time, she was still trying to figure out a career to pursue. After the Engineering for Young Women conference, she realized engineer-

ing was the field for her. Adrian said she loves the challenges engineering presents, and her future degree will open up opportunities in a variety of professions. The summer program was also instrumental in her decision to attend Marquette. “Without the outreach program, I probably wouldn’t have ended up at Marquette,” Adrian said. Samuelson said the program focuses on cultivating the interest of females in engineering, who are underrepresented in the field. Women constitute more than 20 percent of engineering students at Marquette, compared to about 18 percent nationally, he said. Marquette is in the top 20 nationally for number of women studying engineering.

Before attending the Engineering for Young Women conference, Adrian thought engineering was primarily for males. “I was excited to see that other women are interested in engineering,” Adrian said. The outreach program will hold two events in October celebrating women engineers, Samuelson said. The events will be part of Marquette’s 100th anniversary celebration of women being admitted to the university, Jensen said.

program, Samuelson said. In addition to student fees, the college covers some costs. This week’s 15-hour course costs $150 per person. The fee depends on material costs and the amount of items constructed that students bring home afterward, Samuelson said. Samuelson serves as lead instructor. College professors, current students and professional engineers help teach classes, Stempski said. Samuelson said the program provides a community service by educating kids about engineering.

and sophomore in the College of Nursing. The photographs will focus on issues of hunger, homelessness and other aspects of social justice. Festival attendees will be asked to donate money to the photographs they believe to best portray the topics, Heinen said. The winning photographs will be displayed on the Dorothy Day Social Justice Living Learning Community floors in Straz Tower next year, she said. Unlike last year’s festival, none of the films will be competing for a prize, Ross said. Heinen attended last year’s festival and said it was a very positive event. “It’s a very eye-opening and enriching experience,” Heinen said. “The video entries were amazing depictions of life in Milwaukee.” Raether said he thought last year’s festival was very successful, especially because it brought in members of Milwaukee’s homeless community who both performed for and interacted with the audience. “That was amazing,” Raether said. “Someone should have done a documentary about the festival.”

Dolan leaves a daunting legacy

Things to do with your ’lil sibs

Whoever is chosen to succeed Archbishop Timothy Dolan in Milwaukee had better be up for a challenge. Not that Milwaukee is a particularly difficult archdiocese to lead, but Dolan made quite an impression here. His successor has a big shadow to fill. Dolan’s amiable personality and deep spirituality made him popular among young Catholics and more liberal members of the Church. We are not suggesting Dolan’s replacement subject himself to a personality contest. But the ‘everyman’ quality Dolan brought to Milwaukee seems, at times, to be in short supply in our spiritual leaders. Dolan’s successor should maintain the open discussions of faith he started in Milwaukee, particularly with young people. As Mass attendance declines around the world, Milwaukee’s new archbishop should make a special effort to usher young Catholics back to the Church by speaking openly about his own faith. Under Dolan’s watch, access to Catholic education in Milwaukee increased greatly through the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program. The plethora of problems facing Milwaukee Public Schools is the topic of another editorial, but while MPS sputters, the Catholic Church has been given an incredible chance to provide children of all faiths with a robust, nurturing education. We hope Milwaukee’s new archbishop continues Dolan’s progress in Catholic education and develops a special relationship with Marquette. The university is one of the city’s largest Catholic institutions, and its students and staff are eager to be called into service for the Church. Anyone who has spent a period of time in Milwaukee knows parts of the city are racially segregated and rife with crime. The new archbishop should take steps beyond where Dolan left off and use faith as a means for integration and understanding. By working directly with parishes to address issues such as drug and alcohol rehabilitation, unstable and single-parent families and gang-related violence, the new archbishop can bring segregated parts of the city into the wider faith community. We applaud the Vatician for its wisdom in selecting such a wonderful man to lead New York in the faith. We hope it will apply the same diligence to finding an equally fantastic candidate to take the helm in Milwaukee. During his first press conference in his new position as Archbishop of New York, Dolan talked about the difference between being religious and belonging to a spiritual community. “They want to believe without belonging,” Dolan told the gathering of New York media outlets. “The Church is at her best when we invite, when we appeal to people, when we call for what’s best in them.” We read his comments with pride because part of Dolan will always belong to Milwaukee, but we also felt a sense of loss. We are certain Dolan will lead successfully in New York with all of his God-given gifts. We only hope his replacement back home matches up.

Act your age: Don’t spank children Jim McLaughlin It started with Koala Yummies. Back when those delicious cookie snacks were all the rage, I was a Koala Yummy fiend. Sure, Dunkaroos were also nice, but nothing beat the original Australian mammal-shaped treat. Like the little 5-year-old cherub I was, I fluttered over to my mom in the grocery store and politely requested that she grace my lunchbox with the cocoa crunchy bite-sized delicacies. She replied I ate too many sweets, as she put them back high on the shelf. She pushed the cart further down the aisle. I remained stationary. “But MooooooooooommmmmMMM,” I whined. Bad choice — Mom hated whining. “No, and that’s it.” she scolded. “Don’t make a scene.” Not to be defeated, I grabbed another box and placed it inconspicuously in the cart while Mom was reading the soup labels. Not discreetly enough, though, because she caught me and coolly told me I was in trouble. I yelled. She stared. I stomped my feet and crossed my arms. She pointed sternly. I kicked a shelf. She slapped my face. By then, you’d have thought she cut my arms and legs off by the ruckus I was causing. She abandoned the cart and carried me kicking and screaming to the car.

America must fight piracy As the hostage situation unfolded last week, viewers sat glued to cable news networks in total disbelief as pirates — previously known to them only from Disney movies and legends — attacked the Maersk Alabama. Four Somali pirates took Capt. Richard Phillips hostage and held him, their boat surrounded by the U.S. Navy. Luckily, the Navy was able to kill three pirates, take the fourth into custody and, most importantly, rescue Phillips. Piracy will no doubt continue off the Horn of Africa, whose waters are the shipping route for 30 percent of the world’s oil trade and 12 percent of worldwide maritime trade. While European countries, including Ukraine, have negotiated with pirates and several shipping companies have simply paid ransoms, the United States does not have those options. The United States cannot have a reputation of negotiating with terrorists, and pirates are nothing less than poorly organized terrorists. Though our extremely well-trained Navy pulled off a flawless rescue of Phillips, it will not always be able to rescue hostages in such dangerous conditions. The United States needs to establish a new pirate strategy quickly. Unfortunately, pirates have an advantage.

NATIONAL NEWS Man’s face donated for transplant BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) — The wife of a Massachusetts man whose tissue was donated for the nation’s second face transplant said her husband told her before heart transplant surgery that he wanted to donate his organs if he didn’t survive the operation. Susan Whitman told The Boston Globe for a story in Wednesday’s editions that she was surprised, however, when organ bank officials asked if she would approve of the donation of Joseph Helfgot’s face. Whitman and their four children held a conference call and quickly agreed it was the “right thing to do.” Helfgot, 60, learned to appreciate the value of life from his Holocaust survivor parents, friends and family said. “It’s easy to sign up and say you are an organ donor,” Whitman said. “It’s another to have your family understand and facilitate that. It’s painful and it takes strength and a will to do it.” Helfgot never woke up after his April 5 heart transplant, and the face operation took place on April 9, the day before Helfgot’s funeral.


Briefs “He would be happy to know he went out with a bang,” she said. The recipient’s identity hasn’t been released, but Whitman said she would one day like to meet the man who received her husband’s nose, roof of his mouth, upper lip, facial skin, muscles and nerves. Doctors have said the recipient will not look like the donor because his bone structure is different.

(AP) — Four jurors who acquitted an Egyptian college student of federal explosives charges criticized U.S. immigration authorities on Wednesday for trying to deport him, saying it was a “blatant disregard” of their verdict. The jurors were among 12 who found Youssef Megahed, 23, not guilty April 3 of possessing explosives prosecutors claimed could have been used to build a destructive bomb or rocket. Three days after Megahed walked free, U.S. Immigration and Customs

Enforcement agents arrested him as he left a Tampa store with his father. A document ordering Megahed to appear in immigration court said he was being deported based on the circumstances that resulted in the federal charges, said his attorney, Adam Allen. Megahed is being held pending a hearing that has yet to be scheduled. “This sure looks and feels like some sort of ‘double jeopardy’ even if it doesn’t precisely fit the legal definition of that prohibited practice,” the jurors said in a statement. “More troublesome is the government’s seeming blatant disregard for the will of its own people.” Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Ivan L. Ortiz-Delgado said in an e-mail that the immigration charges Megahed faces “differ significantly from those charged in his criminal case.” He didn’t provide details, citing privacy laws. Lincoln stamps to be auctioned DALLAS (AP) — It’s the philatelic version of the Land of Lincoln: A collection of some 10,000 stamps, all featuring the nation’s 16th president, is going on the auction block this week. The collection, painstakingly amassed

by an admirer of Abraham Lincoln, carries a pre-sale price estimate of more than $2 million, according to Dallasbased Spink Shreves Galleries, which is holding the auction Friday in New York City. The stamps, some from as far back as the 1860s, all come from the U.S. or its current or former possessions, including Guam and the Philippines. It includes everything from preproduction items like proofs to stamps that were affixed to envelopes and sent around the world. “If you’re a Lincoln stamp collector, you’d be very interested in this collection,” said Rick Miller, senior editor at Sidney, Ohio-based Linn’s Stamp News. “It’s a great Lincoln collection.” The sale comes just weeks after the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth, and Charles Shreve, auction house president, says it has generated worldwide interest. Among the highlights is a proof of a block of eight 90-cent stamps of Lincoln with his image accidentally printed upside-down. The block, one of only two known, is expected to sell for $30,000 to $50,000, Shreve said. “Some guy just happened to take one of those sheets and slip it in (to

the printing press) upside down,” said the owner of the collection, William J. Ainsworth. Ainsworth, 67, who lives in Roswell, Ga., said that as a child he would watch his father work on his stamp collection. His father died when he was 12, and his mother later gave the collection to him. That collection was destroyed in a flood in the mid-1970s and Ainsworth’s interest in stamps temporarily cooled. A couple of years later, though, then-postmaster general Benjamin F. Bailar, whom he had met through a friend, helped rekindle his interest, suggesting he give his collection a focus. For Ainsworth, who admired Lincoln and was then living in Illinois, the choice seemed obvious. “The whole thing just came together,” said Ainsworth, who has exhibited the collection throughout the world. Ainsworth, a retired partner at accounting firm KPMG, said stamp collecting provided him with an escape from his high-stress job. Parting with something that has brought him so much joy is bittersweet, he said, but it’s also exciting to see the interest it’s generated. “It’s my time to pass it on,” he said.

Site offers history resource New wiki makes student-written essays free to public By Matthew Reddin

Students studying American history recently gained a new resource for research: a Web site called History Engine that compiles student-written essays about historical topics. The Web site was started by professors at the University of Richmond, including Andrew Torget, who describes the software as “a wiki with gatekeepers.” The gatekeepers, Torget said, are professors, who have to

register students before they can post material to the Web site. He said the essays, called “episodes,” are freely accessible after they have been posted. Fellow director Rob Nelson calls the episodes “micro-histories,” and said each episode is about 500 words long. “These are really small moments in the past,” Nelson said. Nelson said the episodes consist of a narrative taken from a historical document that explains the event and its historical significance. In most classes, Torget said, students post episodes in lieu of writing essays, and teachers can then give finals that rely on the information gathered by the class as a whole. Episodes are linked by what Torget calls “metadata,” such as

MPS pinching the budget

dates, places and tags. Tags are keywords associated with episodes. One of the unique characteristics of History Engine is its advanced search techniques, such as Map Search. Torget said the interface “lets you map searches across time and space,” using an interactive map and an adjustable timeline. More advanced search options are coming soon, Nelson said. He said one option planned is a search that would return related tags as well as results, so students could add additional tags to their search and narrow in on the exact episodes they want. History Engine was originally created in 2005 for use in one classroom, and after its success, See History, page 8

Drastic decline in mass attendance over the past decade By Kaellen Hessel

Over the past six decades, church attendance for Catholics in America has gradually declined and now equals the attendance level of Protestants, according to a Gallup report released last week. The data showed Catholic church attendance has declined from 75 percent in 1955 to 45 percent in the middle of the current decade, while Protestant church attendance went from 42 percent to 45 percent in the same time frame. The decline in church attendance for Catholics was sharpest from 1955 to 1975 with attendance dropping 21 percentage points, according to the report. Since then, church attendance has dropped 4 percentage points per decade through the mid1990s, according to the report. Susan Wood, chair of Marquette’s theology department, said it is interesting that the number of those who call them-

selves Catholic has not declined. They are willing to affiliate themselves with the Church because they find religious value in it, she said. The report reviewed Gallup historical data to look for trends, said Lydia Saad, senior editor of the report. If the goal for churches is to bring more people back to mass, it is good to understand why they left, she said. They can learn why they left by when they left, Saad said. Between 1995 and 2009, the number of Catholics who say they attend church has remained relatively unchanged, according to the report. There have been a lot of assumptions that the publicity from the sex abuse scandals within the Catholic Church in 2002 and 2003 hurt attendance, Saad said. However, she said this explanation is not reflected in the report. There are a multitude of reasons for this decline, including an increase in secularism in society and disappointment with church changes, said Patrick Carey, Marquette theology professor and the Rev. William J. Kelly, Chair in Catholic Theology. See Catholic, page 8

Govt. calls for MPS reforms Barrett, Doyle issue report focusing on financial situation

$101 mil.

going to church

Milwaukee Public Schools may be in line for sweeping reforms, after a 104-page report released April 9 indicated more than $100 million in wasteful spending. The MPS review, jointly issued by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and Gov. Jim Doyle, focused more on the financial aspects of MPS’s current situation than on the educational ones.

“MPS is facing tremendous academic and financial challenges, but we also have historic opportunities to work together to reform and improve academic achievement in the state’s largest school district,” Doyle said in a press release. Barrett said within the same release that improving the financial structure of MPS goes a long way toward the necessary educational reforms. “Our paramount concern is improving the academic achievement in MPS,” Barrett said. “We need to get MPS’ fiscal house in order to free up resources to help improve academic outcomes.” Jodie Tabak, a spokeswoman for the mayor’s office, said the

report was the best indication of what precisely needs to happen for MPS to improve its situation. “It is the most up-to-date information,” Tabak said. “Everything listed in the report needs to be addressed.” Tabak also said the report was designed to be a wake-up call for MPS, which she said faces a serious long-term financial problem if not addressed. Carla Vigue, a spokeswoman from the governor’s office, said the governor issued the report to help further the progress of the state’s largest school district. “The community really needs to discuss this issue now,” Vigue See MPS, page 8

People today are more individualistic and do not feel like they have the same obligation to attend as they used to, Wood said. Saad said one of the stronger theories she has heard for the decline in church attendance for Catholics is that changes from the Second Vatican Council inadvertently weakened the belief that Catholics had to go to church. There used to be a Church law requiring Catholics that were relatively faithful to go to church, Carey said. After the Second Vatican Council, the Church did not emphasize the law, he said. Now people think they can be good Catholics without going to church all the time, Wood said.

History Continued from page 7

Torget and the other founders decided to expand the project to a small group of schools. Torget said this was the first year that the Web site opened up nationally, beyond this small group. Now that the project is national, Torget and Nelson both said they hope that the collaboration will be of great assistance to historians outside the classroom

A reason for the drastic decline from 1955 to 1975 offered by theologians is the cultural revolution of the 1960s, according to the report. Saad said the cultural revolution does not fully explain the decrease because Protestant church attendance did not decline. The decline in attendance for Catholics is related to a decline in the sense of participation in Catholic communities, she said. “When people don’t attend regularly it erodes their sense of Christian community,” Wood said. History has shown that it is difficult to predict what will happen with church attendance, Carey said. There are cycles of high and low activity in the church and right now we are in a cycle of low activity, he said.

as well. “These students could be potentially exposing things historians might not find on their own,” Torget said. However, Torget said the focus of History Engine will still be on the classroom. “It’s designed for students doing scholarship,” Torget said. Some professors at Marquette worry about the impact sites like History Engine could have on academics as a whole, however. Kristen Foster, assistant professor of history, is one of the


said. “I hope that Milwaukee becomes a real leader in heading this challenge.” The report indicated that a combination of escalating expenses ($110 to $160 million estimated for the next five years) coupled with enrollment declines (roughly 2 percent annually) could lead to a financial shortfall of $200 million. It said MPS’s budget in the 2008 fiscal year was $1.2 billion, equating to roughly $13,400 spent per student each year. About one-third of that, $405 million, was estimated in the scope of the review. While nearly $400 million was spent on non-instructional services (food service, maintenance, administration), only $51.8

million was spent on general supplies and textbooks. About $21.9 million was spent annually on office, janitorial and IT supplies, and office and school room furniture. The most expensive office supply was a pencil sharpener that cost more than $100. The report recommended MPS organize contracts with vendors as opposed to buying products individually, and compare prices before purchasing right away, saying it could save between $58 and $103 million. There are five major agendas of the MPS Innovation and Improvement Initiative, the title of the report, as spearheaded by Barrett and Doyle. The two recommended to leverage and secure federal funds, increase fiscal accountability and transparency of the MPS administration, correct the state funding

flaw for the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program and design a specific plan to put into action to accomplish the necessary changes. MPS has no say over future actions with regards to this report, according to Roseann St. Aubin, a spokeswoman for MPS. Future reforms she said, are done by the MPS School Board. “The board will be the final decision makers, not the superintendent,” St. Aubin said. School Board President Peter Blewett was unavailable for comment. St. Aubin said Blewett is likely to make some tough decisions regarding how the board will provide the necessary budget cuts. “We can’t verify information within the report, because it was not our report,” St. Aubin said. “It is a complicated process of determining how the changes will go through the board.”

concerned professors. “I think it’s great for students to analyze documents,” Foster said. “But I’m not sure why it needs to be online.” Foster said she thinks the site gives students access to students’ analyses of documents, but not the documents themselves. “Someone else has already grappled with the document,” Foster said. “I probably wouldn’t use it in my classes because I want students to do their own grappling.” Adjunct professor David Mc-

Daniel also worries that plagiarism could result, with students lifting parts of episodes without attributing to the original writer. “The potential for expanding knowledge is vast, but the pitfalls are much greater,” McDaniel said. While it’s not implicitly stated in the site’s name, History Engine only focuses on American history. Both Torget and Nelson said they were not planning on expanding the site to include subjects outside the history of the

United States. Nelson said, however, that he and the other directors considered History Engine to really be two projects: the History Engine Web site and the software that makes the Web site possible. He said the latter might eventually be released as open source software, so others could make their own “Engine” sites. “We’d like to do that at a future point,” Nelson said.

The carlet letter? NJ tags new drivers with decal Teens concerned police will target stickered vehicles By Beth DeFalco Associated Press

TRENTON, N.J. — Would you drive any differently if you knew there was a teenager behind the wheel of the car in front of you? You might find out soon. A first-in-the-nation law in New Jersey will require drivers ages 21 and younger to display identifying decals on their vehicles. Gov. Jon Corzine signed the law Wednesday; it takes effect next year. The decals will probably be a small reflective rectangle attached to the front and rear license plates to help police

enforce restrictions on probationary drivers, motor vehicle officials said. Police will use them to determine whether teens are violating the state driving curfew and passenger restrictions, said Pam Fischer, director of the New Jersey Division of Highway Safety. Authorities will not use the decals to target young drivers or pull them over for no reason, she said. The decals are long overdue and will save lives, said Ron Gesualdo, owner of Gene’s Driving School in Matawan. “The parents are for it,” he said. “The kids don’t say anything, but you know what they’re thinking.” One of those kids thinks the decals will only mean more trouble for teenagers. “That’s going to mean police are going to be bothering us even more,” said Tebvon Mc-

neil, 18, of Paterson. “They see that sticker on the car, they’re just going to be pulling us over for no reason. Are there drugs in the car? That’s the first thing they’re going to think, because we’re teenagers.” And not everyone thinks the new law will improve driver safety. Jennifer Collins, a 29-yearold Hamilton resident, wondered whether the stickers will distract other drivers who are looking for them in traffic. “That really doesn’t make any sense to me, honestly,” she said. Officials are considering using Velcro to attach the decals, so they can be removed by other drivers using the same car. “It will probably be nondescript and simple, and the public at large is probably not even going to notice it,” Fischer said. The decals were among a slew of new driving restrictions Corzine signed for young adults with

probationary licenses, which allow them to drive unsupervised under certain conditions. Other restrictions include changing the driving curfew from midnight to 11 p.m.; allowing only one other teenager in the car; and banning the use of cell phones, even hand-free ones. “These restrictions are in place because they represent the things we know put teens at risk,” Fischer said. New Jersey is the first state to require the decal, although Delaware and Connecticut have toyed with the idea, said David Weinstein, spokesman for AAA Mid-Atlantic. The Delaware Department of Transportation is considering offering residents a reflective orange magnet that says, in black, capital letters: “NOVICE DRIVER.” The magnets would be voluntary, said Dawn Hopkins, department spokeswoman.

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 61 percent of teenage passenger deaths in 2007 occurred in vehicles driven by another teenager. Twenty percent of all passenger deaths occurred when a teenager was driving. New Jersey’s decal law was spurred by the driving death of a 16-year-old honor student in Morris County, Kyleigh D’Alessio, who was killed in 2006 riding in a car driven by a teenager with a probationary license. “No issue is more important than protecting our children, so these efforts are essential to that,” Corzine said. “We don’t want to lose the beauty and the gifts that a Kyleigh could bring to all of us, and we need to take every step possible to make it something that doesn’t occur in the future.”

Tax deadline brings out thousands of protestors Themed activists demonstrate against government By Joe Biesk Associated Press

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Thousands of protesters, some dressed like Revolutionary War soldiers and most waving signs with antitax slogans, gathered around the nation Wednesday for a series of rallies modeled after the original Boston Tea Party. They chose the income tax filing deadline to express their displeasure with government spending since President Barack Obama took office. The protests were held everywhere from Kentucky, which just passed tax increases on cigarettes and alcohol, to South Carolina, where the governor has repeatedly criticized the $787 billion economic stimulus package Congress passed earlier this year. “Frankly, I’m mad as hell,� said

Doug Burnett, a businessman from Des Moines, Iowa. Burnett was one of about 1,000 people, many in red shirts declaring “revolution is brewing,� at a rally at the Iowa Capitol. “This country has been on a spending spree for decades, a spending spree we can’t afford.� Large rallies were expected later in California and New York. In Atlanta, thousands of people were to gather on the steps of the Georgia Capitol, where Fox News Channel conservative pundit Sean Hannity was set to broadcast his show Wednesday night. In Boston, a few hundred protesters gathered on the Boston Common — a short distance from the original Tea Party — some dressed in Revolutionary garb and carrying signs that said “Barney Frank, Bernie Madoff: And the Difference Is?� and “D.C.: District of Communism.� The tea parties were promoted by FreedomWorks, a conservative nonprofit advocacy group based in Washington and led by former Republican House Majority Leader Dick Armey of Texas, a lobbyist whose corporate clients including Verizon, Raytheon, liquor maker

Diageo, CarMax and drug company Sanofi Pasteur. The group’s federal tax returns show its educational and charitable arms received more than $6 million in donations in 2007, the most recent year for which returns are available. Organizers said the movement developed organically through online social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and through exposure on Fox News. And while they insisted it was a nonpartisan effort, it has been seized on by many prominent Republicans who view it as a promising way for the party to reclaim its momentum. “It is a nonpartisan mass organizing effort comprised of people unhappy with the size of government. All you have to be is a mildly awake Republican candidate for office to get in front of that parade,� said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. The movement has also attracted some Republicans considering a 2012 presidential bid. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich planned to address a tea party in a New York City park

Wednesday night. His advocacy group,, has partnered with tea party organizers to get word to the group’s members. South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, another likely 2012 GOP presidential hopeful, planned to attend tea parties in Columbia and Charleston. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal sent an e-mail to his supporters, letting them know about tea parties taking place throughout the state. There were several small counterprotests, including one in at Fountain Square in Cincinnati, where about a dozen people protested the protesters, one carrying a sign that read, “Where were you when Bush was spending billions a month ‘liberating’ Iraq?� The anti-tax demonstration, meanwhile, drew about 4,000 people. In Lansing, Mich., outside the state Capitol, another 4,000 people waved signs exclaiming “Stop the Fiscal Madness,� ‘’Read My Lipstick! No More Bailouts� and “The Pirates Are in D.C.� Children held makeshift signs complaining about the rising debt. “I’m really opposed to spending

the way out of our problem,� said Deborah Mourray, 56, a business administrator from the Detroit suburb of Troy. “How I run my home is I don’t spend more money so my situation improves. Save and conserve.� In Connecticut, police estimated 3,000 people showed up at the state Capitol in Hartford and another 1,000 at a rally in New Haven. Many carried makeshift pitchforks and signs with messages aimed at the Democrats who control Congress and the White House. In Montgomery, Ala., Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It� blared from loud speakers as more than 1,000 people gathered at the Alabama Statehouse. Greg Budell, a radio talk show host, said the tea parties could have the same impact as when Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of a Montgomery bus during segregation in 1955. “If one woman could change the world by refusing to move to the back of the bus, we ought to be able to change it by saying we are not going to let our government throw us under the bus and our children and our grandchildren,� he said.

Record Store Day THURSDAY, APRIL 16, 2009


marks second annual celebration Record label founder models nation-wide event off similar comic book extravaganza By Molly Gamble

There’s something to be said for convenient music. You can click “Buy” on your laptop in the confines of your white-walled bedroom to download your favorite song of the minute. Or browse for albums in your local big box store in the midst of vacuums and blenders. But come on, forget about all of that. There’s only one place that will make you remember what music means to people, and what people mean to music: a record store. An authentic, hole in the wall, vinyl-smelling, bass-thumping record store. Saturday is the second annual Record Store Day, a celebration of the culture of music now observed by more than 700 independent retailers nationwide. Hard to find vinyl releases will be exclusively available in record shops, including names like Neil Young, Regina Spektor, Jenny Lewis and early anti-pirating advocates Metallica. Eric Levin, founder of both the Association of Independent Media Stores and Criminal Records of Atlanta, co-founded Record Store Day after his comic book shop observed Free Comic Book Day. He said he took the same mentality of celebration and sales and applied it to record shops. “I think it’s amazing what we’ve accomplished in two years,” Levin said. He’s seen vinyl sales increase, partly due to young kids who find more enjoyment in physically owning music. “I think we’re going to see more record stores,” he said. “I’m always hearing about new stores. There’s always going to be an entrepreneurial spirit behind this art.” Dan DuChaine is the co-owner of Rush-Mor Records, 2635 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., an establishment that has quite the story in itself. DuChaine was a longtime customer of the record store and bought it in 1996, along with employee William Rouleau, when it was going to be turned into a cigarette depot. The two guys decided they’d give business a go for a year and see how it treated them. One year turned into five, and it’s been breathing ever since.

In a culture of instant gratification, technology and anti-social habits, DuChaine said record stores are becoming more of niches in themselves these days. But he is quick to deny fears of record stores’ extinction. “You can buy beer and drink it at home, but people still go out,” he said. “People want to interact, meet more people.” The average visitor that strolls into Rush-Mor is between the ages of 25 to 45, DuChaine said. A steady customer base of regulars keeps the place going, and he still sees a few customers that recall the day they saw Elvis perform. When DuChaine and Rouleau were about to buy Rush-Mor, another record store owner shared some wise words with the men. “He said to me, ‘You’ll never get rich, but you’ll meet a lot of cool people, learn a lot of culture and hear a lot of new music,’ ” DuChaine said. For Record Store Day, Rush-Mor seems to be applying that mind frame to their celebration: an all-day pub and live music crawl through the Bay View neighborhood starring local artists and bands. The afternoon will start around 1 p.m. at Frank’s Power Plant, 2800 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., with a performance by Bear Proof Suit, a local hardcore punk band. A congregation of people will travel to various venues for acts including Father Phoenix, Wereworm and the hip-hop of C-Section. Finally, at Club Garibaldi, 2501 S. Superior St., at 8 p.m. both the Ill Ego Aliens and hip-hop group The Rusty P’s will perform. “It’s easy to be selfish and be like ‘Hey, come here and hang out here all day,’ ” DuChaine said. “But it’s more like, ‘let’s go explore the neighborhood.’ ” The Exclusive Company, 1669 N. Farwell Ave., is also participating in Record Store Day. The store sells all music under the sun — from old school soul and funk to obscure bands to the top 40 of the day. Manager Terry Hackbarth said the store is 100 percent regulars and caters to hardcore fans who see music as a lifestyle. On Saturday, 15 Milwaukee — and Madison area — bands will be playing at Exclusive as part of an all day party at the store, complete with free food, beer and record sales. Bands playing include Pezzettino, Sleep Tight Co., The Candeliers, Invade Rome, Plexi 3 and The Nice Outfits. The store will also be selling an album with various selections of the featured bands. All proceeds will go to Milwaukee’s independent radio station WMSE 91.7.

Pezzettino celebrates CD release at Shank Hall Milwaukee accordion player Margaret Stutt regards album, Lion, as aggressive and fierce By Kevin Mueller

Up-and-coming Milwaukee singer/accordionist Margaret Stutt (a.k.a. Pezzettino) is in the least way conventional. Her primary instrument, an accordion, is normally used as a backing track for modern bands, which meld the sound with guitars, bass and sometimes synthesizers. But Stutt brings her accordion to center stage, creating an intimate and delicate atmosphere for listeners. (Not to mention she plays it upside down; although she contends

it’s right side up to her). “With the accordion right over my chest and right over my heart, it feels like it’s coming straight out of me,” Stutt said. “The sound is amplified straight from my heart; it’s physically right on it. So, if I have something to get off my chest, the sound is actually coming off my chest.” Pezzettino is playing its CD release party at Shank Hall, 1434 N. Farwell Ave., 8 p.m. Saturday. Her latest and second album, Lion, was Stutt’s first experience recording her material in a studio. Her 2008 debut, Because I Have No Control, was recorded in various places using her laptop computer, she said. Stutt already has plans for a follow-up album to Lion called Lamb.

One of the three final shows at The Rep, “I Just Stopped By To See The Man,” tells the story of fictional bluesman Jesse Davidson.

about to conclude with three shows: “I Just Stopped By To See The Man,” Anton Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard” and “Fire on the Bayou.” The season started in September right after Labor Day weekend, according the Rep’s artistic director, Joseph Hanreddy.

The Rep brings all kinds of theater to the Milwaukee community. Because the company has three stages to work with, it’s able to offer multiple productions simultaneously. “We have three different venues and they all have their own character,” Hanreddy said. Since September, The Rep has brought a variety of theatrical experiences to Milwaukee. “It’s been a really strong season for us,” Hanreddy said. “We just finished a run of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and it was one of our bestsellers ever. We were really pleased with that.” “I Just Stopped By To See The Man,” which is performed in The Rep’s Stiemke Theater, tells the story of Jesse Davidson, the greatest (fictional) bluesman. Although long believed dead, Jesse is actually living in the Louisiana Bayou with his activist daughter. The story is based on folklore and legend, and when Jesse is visited by Karl, a young British musician, legends as old as the blues themselves come to life. Hanreddy said “I Just Stopped By To See The Man” is a production anyone will enjoy. “Everybody’s into music and the cultural influences on music are always interesting,” Hanreddy said. “And the performances are great.” The play features only three actors. Lanise Shelley is a member of The Rep’s resident acting company, and actors Cedric Young and Eric Hellman were recruited from Chicago. After a month of hard work in rehearsals, “I Just Stopped By To See The Man” opened to critical acclaim. The show opened on April 8 and so far the run has gone quite well, said Hanreddy. “The audience has been pretty full,” he said. “Our critical reviews have been great, too.” “I Just Stopped By To See The Man” will be running through May 3 at the Stiemke Theater. Tickets are also available for “The Cherry Orchard” and “Fire on the Bayou,” which both run through May 10. “The Cherry Orchard” is presented at the Quadracci Powerhouse Theater while “Fire on the Bayou” can be seen at the Rep’s Stackner Cabaret. For tickets, visit the box office or call 414-224-9490. Tickets are also available online. A student discount is available with ID, and student rush tickets are available 30 minutes prior to showtime at the Quadracci Powerhouse and Stiemke theaters.

Van Sickle takes Palisades Classic By Pete Worth

For as many final rounds that Mike Van Sickle has played while in contention for a title, this one had just a little more drama than usual. Van Sickle was down two strokes to both Virginia Commonwealth’s Vincent Nadeau and Louisville’s Riley Wheeldon heading into the final round of the Palisades Collegiate Classic. He was grouped with both to start the round. The pressure was not enough to shake Marquette’s All-American, as he rallied to take home his 11th career collegiate title Tuesday afternoon in Charlotte, N.C. Van Sickle’s final round 6-under 66 capped a dominant 54hole stretch in which he had only four bogeys and set a new tournament record with a 16-under total of 200 — one stroke off his personal best score for three rounds. “This tournament was kind of a special opportunity for me,” Van Sickle said. “Going into the final round with the three guys in con-

tention, we got to know where everyone stood and feel the pressure of knowing the situation, which in college golf is kind of a rarity. It was kind of a ‘mano y mano’ ordeal out there. I guess I just had more ‘mano.’” Coach Tim Grogan said that while he’s used to Van Sickle’s heroics, they never fail to impress. “It was such a solid tournament from start to finish,” Grogan said. “The 66 the last day was even better than (Monday’s) 65 because the pins were a little more difficult. You definitely shouldn’t take for granted his ability to come from behind like that, but he has a confidence that he knows he’s going to do it and I think even the people behind him know it.” The Golden Eagles as a team finished third in the tournament — their best finish thus far in the spring season. Dustin Schwab concluded a solid all-around tournament Tuesday with a 1-over 73 to finish with a 1-under 215 for the tournament and a tie for 16th place. Ben Sieg was the only Marquette scorer to struggle Tuesday, finishing with a 79. Sieg finished in a tie for 30th at 4-over-par 220. “We’re definitely playing better now than we have in the last

couple of tournaments,” Schwab said. “But there’s still a little scoring things that hopefully we can take care of.” Van Sickle won’t have long to relish his victory. Marquette heads south again Friday to defend its title at the 2009 Big East Championships at Lake Jovita Country Club in Dade City, Fla. It’s the same course in which the team finished 6th at the USF/ Ron Smith Invitational in early March. “Personally I like playing events consecutively,” Schwab said. “It gives you time to take a day off and work on a few things then go right back at it. Plus, it’s a course that fits us pretty well.” Van Sickle said the win in Charlotte gives him a lot of confidence heading into the conference tournament, where he finished in a tie for fourth last season. “It was a morale boost for myself, just knowing the work I’ve been putting in this spring has finally been coming around,” he said. “When I shot 65 in the last round at (the Spring Break Championships) I knew I was doing the right things, then I went into this week and everything went well. Now I just hope to post some numbers and go out and defend our Big East Championship.”

Senior Mike Van Sickle, pictured in a practice from earlier this season, locked up another tournament win in record-breaking fashion Tuesday.

Lying 125 feet away from the green after his drive on the 54th and final hole at the Palisades Country Club, Mike Van Sickle launched a wedge shot that flew just past the flag, spun back and just missed dropping into the cup for eagle. Van Sickle would sink the birdie putt to clinch a remarkable 11th collegiate tournament title.

Confidence running high Marquette should Conference rival up next for MU By Erik Schmidt

Even if the men’s tennis team doesn’t win another match, it has already had a successful season. Marquette pushed several ranked opponents to the brink, was nearly unbeatable at home and earned a No. 4 seed in the Big East Championships on the backing of a 16-7 record. But the Golden Eagles feel they will win another match, and if coach Steve Rodecap has his way they’ll win more than one. “Our goal is to win the whole thing, and I don’t think that’s asking too much,” Rodecap said. “We can compete with anyone.” The Golden Eagles have been hot lately, posting a seven-match winning streak before falling to No. 44 South Florida on Monday. In fact, the only thing hotter than the team’s recent play is the Florida weather that the team must play in for the upcoming Championships held on South Florida’s campus. Despite the recent loss and

different playing conditions, Rodecap feels his team isn’t at a disadvantage heading into the season’s final stretch. If anything, he thinks those downfalls work to Marquette’s benefit. “We’re extremely confident and feel we have momentum,” Rodecap said. “It’s funny because even though we lost to South Florida we were handling the heat much better than they were.” “Our goal is to win the whole thing, and I don’t think that’s asking too much. We can compete with anyone.” Steve Rodecap Men’s tennis coach

“We want to win, but we’ll learn more from the loss,” junior Mark Rutherford said. “We know how we match up now.” Marquette has leaned on the experience of its senior leaders, Trent Hagan and Stephen Shao, most of the year and has looked to talented juniors Dusan Medan and Niko Boulieris for big wins. Still, Rodecap insists that there isn’t one key player on the team. “This team doesn’t have one go-to guy,” Rodecap said. “The team looks to each other. We

need wins from everyone, and luckily everyone on this team is capable.” Although Rodecap’s squad is gunning to take down No. 1 seeded Louisville and defending champion Notre Dame, it will have to go through No. 5-seeded DePaul first. “Our rivalry with DePaul gets pretty heated,” Shao said before the season. “After WisconsinMadison, they’re the team we look forward to playing most.” For the Golden Eagles to sneak past DePaul and then topple conference giants like Louisville and Notre Dame, Rodecap said what the team has to do is very simple — believe. The team has the right pieces — with a perfect blend of hardened veterans and young talent — to make a serious run at the championship. “I think this team is ready,” Rodecap said. “We only have one freshman who plays singles, and he’s won his last two matches. And I don’t think we’ve had a match all year where everyone has played well, yet we still have won a lot of matches. “All we need to do is believe, and the thing is, we do believe.”

share the wealth Nick Bullock There are a lot of things in this world that I don’t really care for. People that take the time to poor syrup into each individual square on a waffle before eating; Quentin Tarantino films; and peas, just to name a few. But one thing that really burns my toast is when I see Dwyane Wade paraphernalia strewn all over this campus and any advertisement related to this university. Actually, I should rephrase that. It bothers me that only Wade is featured so prominently. I mean, there are a number of other talented players who still attend this school that deserve some of that fame. Wade isn’t even the only former Marquette player in the NBA. And if your argument is he is the only good one, well, then you haven’t been paying much attention. Steve Novak, who was drafted by the Houston Rockets in 2006 with the 32nd overall pick, was traded in

the NBA off-season to the Los Angeles Clippers in what was seen as a salary dump by the Rockets. While he had a better chance of earning minutes in L.A. than in Houston, it took extensive injuries to most of the Clippers’ roster to push him into an increased role. When more minutes came, however, Novak didn’t disappoint. From the start of the new year onward, Novak has averaged a cool 46.1 percent from the field and 43.8 percent from 3-point range. Although the 6-foot-10, 220-pound small forward is fairly limited in other areas, his ability to come in off the bench and provide instant offense forced the Clippers coaching staff to give him more playing time. “He is the best shooter I’ve ever seen,” former teammate Tracy McGrady said following a 2006 practice, according to com. “I don’t care if he can do anything else. He can shoot and I love the way he shoots. I don’t care if he can’t dribble, he can’t rebound, can’t play defense, the man can shoot the ball.” What McGrady forgot is that Novak can also dunk, as witnessed at Marquette Madness his senior year.

Is anyone tired of this guy yet? I bet the rest of college golf is. Down two strokes going into the final round at the Palisades Collegiate Classic, the senior fired a 6-under 66 and captured his 11th collegiate victory. So if you thought you were experiencing déjà vu when you saw his picture above, you’re not crazy – Van Sickle has just been crazy good.

women’s tennis

Big East Championships looming Golden Eagles will have ‘hands full’ By Eric Grover

It’s been a season of adjustments for Olga Fischer. The freshman from Berlin, Germany has spent the year with her teammates learning about a new country, new culture and her craft — tennis. That sounds overwhelming for many, but she has taken the challenge in stride. “I think she’s handling the transition well, both tennis-wise and academically,” coach Jody Bronson said. “I think she’s very comfortable with the system here and the team. I think she’s a great example for everybody. She works hard and she’s a real competitor. “I think one of the things that has made her so successful is she really doesn’t beat her self much. That opponent has to come out and beat her.” Taking down Fischer hasn’t exactly been the easiest task for the opposition this year. Leading the Marquette women in wins, she has a dual record of 16-8, which includes a 12-5 effort at No. 2 singles. Even more impressive is the

10-game win streak she was able to accumulate during the season, culminating with a critical point in a 4-3 road win over conference rival Rutgers. The early success has been important to her. “It means a lot because it’s only my first year,” Fischer said. “I tried my best, and I’m glad that I did a good job for the team. I will continue to improve next semester.” The freshman has also spent a lot of time off the court getting to know her new teammates. “They are like my second family. I feel very at home with them,” she said. And as invaluable as they have been to Fischer’s growth, her play has been just as important to her teammates. “Olga has had a lot of adjustments coming from Germany — working on her game and getting used to our culture,” said senior Robin Metzler. “She’s been great getting used to everyone off the court, and she’s had a lot of wins, too. She’s great as a teammate.” Coming off a 4-3 win Monday at Stetson, the team heads into the Big East Championships this weekend with an overall record of 16-8. The Golden Eagles captured the fourth seed in the tournament and await the winner of Thursday’s Connecticut-Rutgers match. Marquette

easily defeated the Huskies 7-0 on March 1 and tallied an impressive 4-3 road victory against the Scarlet Knights on Feb. 22. With Rutgers likely being the team Marquette will face Friday, coach Bronson stressed the importance of guarded confidence heading into the match. “I feel confident (about the match) if we play well,” Bronson said. “We had a tough match with Rutgers and just pulled it out 4-3, so we’re going to have our hands full with them.” For Metzler, the only senior on Bronson’s squad, the weekend marks the end of her tennis career at Marquette. She has mentored her younger teammates all year long but isn’t quite done yet. “It means a lot,” she said. “I just want to go out there and play well, and I hope our team does well. “I want to lead like I have all season. Hopefully we’ll come out with the victory.” The team just spent a week in Florida, but make no mistake — it was no vacation. For now, however, the Golden Eagles must wait patiently until Friday. “I think we’re excited about being the fourth seed, and we’re anxious for the tournament to start,” Bronson said. “We’ll be ready.”

Defense is solid; offense off target High-speed attack a work in progress By Tim Kraft

The Marquette women’s soccer team has taken 32 shots and scored just one goal. The Golden Eagles have no problem firing away at opponents’ goalkeepers; they just can’t seem to get the ball past them. “The thing we need to focus on is putting the ball in the back of the net,” junior midfielder Brittany Bares said. “We are getting some looks, now we just need to finish those.” The Golden Eagles held convincing advantages in the shot column in matches against Kansas and Saint Louis last week but found the net just once in two games. Marquette earned a 1-1 draw against the Jayhawks and then Saint Louis, 0-0. The team heads to Texas this weekend to face off against Stephen F. Austin and Texas A&M where the Golden Eagles will look to put an end to their scoring troubles. Junior defender Katie Miller said that attacking the opponent’s goal is something the team has focused on and will get better at with time. “I think we’ve been going forward a lot which is key if you want to score,” Miller said. “You have to be strong in your attack. “Attacking quickly and attacking as a team is really important. As we continue to be more aggressive on offense we’ll get some more goals out of that.” One main component Marquette will need to stress in order to succeed is defense. After losing senior defenders Katie Kelly, Shannon Cusick and Kelli DeBarge, coach Markus Roeders has had trouble

finding the right mix of players. “It’s a new year, a new team, and all you can do is move forward and learn from the experience,” Roeders said. “Other players are now getting more opportunities, and they’ve been waiting on it. It’s now just a matter of stepping out, adjusting and playing more.” Although the Golden Eagles surrendered an early tally to Kansas, the team allowed just seven total shots in the two games. If Marquette can maintain solid defensive play and produce a wellbalanced attack, it should come out of the weekend with positive results. “As we’re looking at the two games really what we’re trying to do is just trying to get better,” Roeders said. “We didn’t convert our chances last week, but as the day progressed the chances we did create were better and better.” Nothing, however, will come easy against a Texas A&M squad which boasts a 6-0-1 record this spring and has scored 29 goals while allowing just four. The Aggies took eventual national champion North Carolina to double overtime in the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight last season but fell 2-1. “A&M is a great team,” Roeders said. “They were young last year, and I think there are a lot of similarities between them and us from the standpoint of youth and growing as a team. I would expect them to be the best team we play this spring.” Overall, the attitude on and off the field this spring has been positive for the revamped Golden Eagles. “I think we’re doing great,” Bares said. “We don’t really have to stress team chemistry, because our team does get along very well, and I think that shows on the field. “We’re more composed than other teams, and we connect well both on and off the field.”

Former Golden Eagle Steve Novak is finally starting to make his mark on the NBA. Too bad Marquette has failed to recognize his recent athletic accomplishments — or anyone’s but Dwyane Wade’s for that matter.


Continued from page 15

All joking aside, Novak is one of only seven players in the NBA to make more than 40 percent of his 3-pointers and more than 50 percent of his 2-pointers, putting him with the likes of Steve Nash and Ray Allen. Now, I’m not saying Novak deserves his own shoe or his own commercials. What I am saying is Dwyane Wade was not the only athlete to pass through this school worth praising. Jerel McNeal was recently named an Associated Press Second Team

All-American. Wesley Matthews was one of the few recognizable names to participate in the 21st Annual State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships at this year’s Final Four. Despite their less than desirable season, Angel Robinson, Krystal Ellis and Jessica Pachko each earned All-Big East accolades. Just Tuesday Mike Van Sickle shot a tournament record 16-under-par 200 to win the Palisades Collegiate Classic. Following the women’s soccer team’s fall season, Katie Kelly was selected as an All-American by Soccer Buzz, while she and teammates Shannon Cusick and Natalie Kulla earned All-Great Lakes regional recognition.

No, none of these players are as marketable as Wade, with his stylish Band-Aids and his Olympic gold medal. But I’m not talking about pushing merchandise. I recently found myself on the fourth floor of the Memorial Library, and when I went to look up a book on the computer, wouldn’t you know it, a picture of Dwyane in the library was hopping from place to place across the black screen. Really? Can’t we throw someone else’s mug up there? Not mine. Maybe Novak’s. Or maybe one of the other nearly 200 student athletes at Marquette.
