Corbett’s proposed budget falls short Cierra Cook Staff Writer email@example.com “Let’s begin with education. Every child in this state should be ready to learn…ready to grow, ready to succeed, and my budget sets an agenda in that spirit,” Governor Tom Corbett said in his speech about this years tentative budget. On Feb. 4, this year’s proposed state budget was released. It puts more of an emphasis on public education and is scheduled to be implemented in July. The proposed budget for this year plans to spend $400 million more on public education than last year, and is also projected to include a $25 million scholarship program. These scholarships will be for about 2,000 students whose parents make up to $110,000 dollars a year. this is an increase that is 3.3 percent more than last year. the second straight year, after an 18

Whether it is in the tuition costs or the lack of faculty, the effects are everywhere. up to my senior year now, the tuition has increased at least $1,000 or so,” Alexa Weissert, a senior English major, said. “In regards to the faculty and departments, I know after my freshman year that German was cut.” Since 2011, Governor Coring for public education has been cut tremendously.

secutive years. An article by John Micek for themorningcall.com states that, after the 2011 budget proposal, Corbett’s approval rating went down to 39 percent. In Feb. 2014, a Quinnipiac University poll stated that his approval was at a low 36 percent. Education is the biggest adversary when it comes to his approval ratings.

Adrienne Stucke: ‘A ray of sunshine’ gym daily and loved participating in intramural sports.
Jaimee Kester Lifestyle Editor email@example.com “Adrienne was unlike anyone I ever met,” said Kelly Walser, a sophomore majoring in criminal justice, who was roommates with Stucke. Adrienne Stucke, a sophomore health and physical education major, died from injuries sustained in a car accident on Sunday, March 9, 2014. Stucke was a loyal friend and spent the majority of her time on campus with her best friends. “We did everything together,” said Britni Wehr, Stucke’s roommate , a sophomore majoring in communications. “She always put us before herself. That’s the kind of person she was.” At the start of her sophomore year, Stucke made the decision to switch her major to health and physical education. She dedicated herself to Graphic courtesy of 4shared.com
the gym every day and made sure to eat healthy,” said Walser. “And she was always talking about getting her ‘macros’,” added Wehr. Stucke played intramural volleyball and soccer and loved lifting weights. She wanted to be healthy and a positive role model for her future students. School came naturally to Stucke and she took immense pride in her grades. Her bright personality and dedication to school was apparent to not only her friends but her professors as well. “She was always so upbeat and fun and had the potential to be a great physical education teacher,” said Professor Kim Everhart, of the health and physical education department, who had Stucke in two of her classes. Stucke loved being outside and took every opportunity to get out into the sunshine. She drove a Jeep Wrangler and loved taking the top and doors off in the summer. “Every time it was slightly above thirty degrees we had to go out for a drive,” said Walser. “She loved being outdoors.” Although she came across as bright, bubbly and girly she was a country girl at heart. Her sion for country music. “She took special pride in the fact that she could rock a baseball hat,” said Wehr. Her younger brother, Wyatt and her mom were two of her closest friends. She was extremely family oriented and went home often to spend time with them. Every Sunday she went to church with her boyfriend, Jefferson Thomas. He was with her when her car crashed and is in intensive care in Altoona. Her friends will always remember Stucke by her energetic nature, bright smile and ability to make others laugh. She always made those around her feel welcomed and loved. “She described herself as a ray of sunshine,” said Wehr.

News Campus groups plan events to empower women 4
Kyra Smith-Cullen News Editor firstname.lastname@example.org Though National Women’s History Month is drawing to a close, several organizations on campus intend to hold events geared towards women and equality past the end of the month. LHU is ending this year’s Women’s History Month festivities with an event in Avenue 209 on Thursday, March 27 at 6:30 p.m. However, the HOPE center is holding its annual Take Back the Night march and rally on Wednesday, April 2, at 6:00 p.m. and American Association of University Women will be hosting an equal pay workshop on Tuesday, April 8, at 5:00 p.m. Thursday’s “Let Her Voice Be Heard” event will feature readings from female authors by students.
“I love when female students or faculty read their own work which does often happen,” said Professor Tracey Cummings, of the English department. The time will also be used to announce the winners of the Virginia Martin Gender Issues Essay Award nominees for the President’s Award for Distinguished Work in the Advancement of Women’s Issues. The “Take Back the Night” rally, which will be held on the steps of Price Auditorium, is an annual event geared towards raising awareness of sexual assault and rape. It will feature speakers from campus and the Clinton County Women’s Center, in addition to an open mic period where survivors can share their stories. Though not exclusive to women, the female population makes up a who have been sexually assaulted or raped.
The AAUW’s event, “$tart $mart”, is a three and a half hour workshop that will focus on educating women on the lack of wage equality in the professional world and will be held in Bentley S06. “The workshop will educate attendees about the gender pay gap, help students develop a budget and determine salary needs and train them in negotiating skills through role playing,” said Professor Holle Canatella, one of the advisors for AAUW. Space for the workshop is limited, so interested students should RSVP to Canatella by April 1. “When women receive equal pay, not only does the employee and gets more productivity and leadership,” said Canatella. “So equal pay is

7 Arts & Entertainment The Supberb ‘Supermodel’ a n e r A m u sounds in new album Alb Spencer McCoy Staff Writer email@example.com I think it’s safe to assume that everyone has heard “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People. Many weren’t “Torches” in 2011. This year we got a special treat when Foster the People dropped their long awaited album “Supermodel.” Foster the People is arguably one of the best indie bands the largely growing indie genre. “Supermodel” was good all the way through. Right from the start the band starts rocking and doesn’t seem to slow down till the very end. each song in their own individual right has something great to offer. They all have a kickin’ beat that just screams summer time cruising. “Supermodel” was intended to be released Nov. of 2013 but was pushed to Jan. of 2014. Luckily, it was worth
the wait. After hearing nothing new from Foster the People for sometime it has been great to hear more from the mind of Mark Foster, the bands lead singer and founder. The great thing about “Supermodel” is that every song is ally jamming out to. Many albums usually have a few good hits but “Supermodel” breaks that boundary. Album delays usually don’t offer too much good news but the decision to wait until proves that they aren’t a one hit wonder but in fact have the potential to produce quality music that can provide entertainment for die hard fans, or new comers. Overall “Supermodel” was fantastic. I loved the feel good party style Mark Foster and his band created. If you Beginners Guide to Destroying the Moon” and “Ask Yourself” were just some of my favorite songs on the album. Check out this album as quickly as you can, I promise you, you won’t be disappointed.
Spring is here, but ‘winter is coming’
Kayla Marsh A&E Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
With spring approaching something we can look forward to is winter coming. Season 3 of Game of Thrones ended on quite the dramatic note. Many of the main characters met their ends at the ‘Red Wedding.’ Breanne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) ended up out of her armor and in a dress, and needing a hand from Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). And Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) leveled a couple cities on the east continent, in her quest for the Iron Throne. With all the excitement jam packed into season 3, we can only imagine what season 4 has in store for us fans. Season 4 will focus on the second half of the third novel ‘A Storm of Swords’ in the ‘A Song of Fire and Ice’ book series. The upcoming season will see The War of 5 Kings drawing to a close, the North’s revenge, and the “Purple Wedding” of Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) and Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Glee-
son), “It’s going to be the wedding of the year,” says George R.R. Martin, author of the acclaimed book series, “and as memorable in its own way as our wedding last season…It’s what the fans call the Purple Wedding, based on the color of the wine, which plays a big part.” The character development of the main characters across the 3 seasons is some of the best writing and acting combinations on television right now. The core actors take George R.R. Martin’s fantastic story and execute it with on-point accuracy. The actors enjoy being on the show, but week after week they fear for the life of their characters. “No one is safe: that’s true and it’s a scary, scary thing,” said Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. “You open the scripts and wonder if you’ll be alive next week. It’s scary as an actor. But it’s also great because you are as curious as the viewers as to what will happen next.” If season 3 is any indication of the direction the show is going, we can only keep going up. Season 4 premieres on April 6 on HBO at 9 p.m.

The harsh reality of dating
Danya Bloch Managing Editor email@example.com Maybe Romeo and Juliet had it right; the ideas we have of living ‘happerson isn’t always what we expect. We’ve played the game enough to know that the fairytale daydream we come up with doesn’t always meet reality Expectation: You catch the eye of a cute boy in your philosophy class, he asks to borrow your notes and writes his number in the margin of your notebook. Reality: You walk into philosophy not only realizing how much you’re going to dread the class, but also seeing that there are no eligible bachelors present. Expectation: You text back and forth throughout the week with an overuse of the blushed-face emoji. Reality: A Facebook message or two get passed, but nothing more exciting than a “Hey, what’s up?” Expectation: one of your favorites, and you have no doubt in your mind that the night will go smoothly. Reality: Your hair is a frizzy mess, but that’s ok because you’re going to the cheapest bar in an hour and all you can think about is the annoying way he chews his gum. Expectation: nice you look and even opens your car door before getting in the driver’s seat. Reality: He says he’ll meet you there.
Expectation: The food is delicious, he’s a perfectly mannered gentleman, and you can’t help but smile when he touches your hand from across the table. Reality: He’s already ordered himself a drink by the time you arrive, you order your own and realize you’ll be on your own tab tonight. Expectation: After he picks up the check your car ride home is spent laughReality: Your eyes glaze over as you listen to him telling stories of his accomplishments, drunken stories, and cheesy pickup lines. He’s more of show-off Expectation: He carries your left-overs while walking you to your door; the pair of you linger on the porch, not wanting to end the evening. Reality: He invites some of his ‘buddies’ to join you both for the rest if the hits on you and tries to take you home. Expectation: He cuts you off mid sentence with a kiss that lasts until you force yourself to go inside, not wanting to rush anything. Reality: You try to come up with an excuse to leave until you just don’t care Expectation: He stops you before walking inside, telling you to save your next Saturday for him. You walk in with a smile that last for the rest of the night. Reality: He gives you a meaningless hug and surprises you a bit by promising to text you to make sure you got home safely. Expectation: You fall asleep after reading a sweet goodnight text. Reality: You don’t hear from him except for a booty call two weeks later.

Supreme Court to rule: Religious rights of corporations and the reproductive ramifications Lona Middleton Copy Editor email@example.com I can think of few things more idiotic than letting corporations claim the same status as organized religions when it comes to health insurance and women’s issues. In case you haven’t heard, Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. is being sued
by a former employee after being denied certain types of contraceptives. Hobby Lobby is claiming that as a private organization, they can use religious reasons to deny women certain types of contraception. This, if allowed would be the biggest step backwards for women’s rights in years. Currently, this issue is before the Supreme Court and it is go. If it goes in favor of big business,
then women employees and female family members of employees will have control of their bodies and reproductive independence limited by insurance coverage. They will be forced to pay out of pocket for a service most other companies cover. This is supposed to be a time of progression and forward-thinking. use birth control without the stigma that had long since accompanied it.
We control our bodies and that includes our reproductive decisions. Giving corporations the ability to deny women the easy accessibility of certain types of birth control would set us all back generations in women’s rights accomplishments. All we can honestly do is hope that the Supreme Court, with its female justices has the wisdom to see what a devastating strike against women this decision could be.
Pretty little ladies Sarah Eckrich Opinion Editor firstname.lastname@example.org
I was steaming clothes at work a few days ago when a woman hesitantly approached me, carrying a sandal and looking for guidance. Normally, it’s the kind of interaction I dread. Despite years of retail service—all that time spent around shoes and apparel and accessories— I’ve never developed a strong sense of right and ing in the beginning of “The Devil Wears Prada.” So I feared any woman approaching me with a shoe and a burning curiosity in her eyes, the kind that meant she needed something. Because if what she needed was advice, I was going to lie through my teeth—the only thing working with the lessly. Instead, this lady just asked me if we had her size shoe so she could try it on. I wandered back into a canyon of shoes, stacked taller than two of me and found what she wanted. We went on like this through several pairs of shoes. Every time I waited for a question, I’d have to invent an answer to and every time she just marveled at her feet, then picked another pair for me to search for in her size.
As she zipped one particular pair of slick black boots, I remember thinking to myself how put together she looked. Her jewelry matched the metal on her purse and the colors in the patterns on her blouse. She had electric green eyes and luscious black hair with a skillfully sculpted mesh of waves and curls. I realized she didn’t and indeed wouldn’t need my help. After all, I was wearing slippers at work; she was clearly one of the beautiful people. Soon enough, she was done with me. She thanked me for all my help, scooped up her boxes of shoes and headed for another part of the store. I went back to steaming clothes and feeling sorry for myself about the tragic state of my womanhood. My self-pity over something so trivial was disconcerting. I realized that I had never once worried the woman would ask me to calculate the sale price—something I knew I could do it on the spot without trouble because I’m a smart girl. But I’m not a girly girl and the thought of her asking me something “feminine” had nearly disarmed me. A youth spent sidelining myself as a woman suddenly left me feeling inadequate as an adult. My attempts to transcend my gender ultimately left me feeling ignorant and thus unworthy. What a slap in the face it is to realize that in striving for one thing, you’ve accomplished the opposite.
Not content to leave me with one epiphany, the fates put this woman in my path again as she checked out. She explained to a coworker and me that she was fat and ugly—not that she felt fat and ugly but that she was those things. Then she explained that she bought shoes to make herself feel better. And I was never so instantly heartbroken. Here I’d been admiring this woman for being so beautiful and put together and she felt the exact same way I did: insecure and inadequate. Before this encounter, I’d never thought of myself as someone who’d ever been a victim of my gender. I never felt held down by a glass ceiling. But it turns out push-up bras and panic over questions about how to wear tunic tops can qualify as glass ceilings too. For centuries, society has demanded that women be a properly-embellished gender. In spite of all the strides we’ve made to equal men, we’re still oppressed by expectations of femininity. Ladies, I think many of us have got that anything-you-can-do-I-can-do-better attitude. And that’s a big step in the right direction. But I don’t think we’ve spent enough time reminding each other and ourselves that how we decorate our pretty little heads isn’t nearly as important as what’s inside of them. And where we go in life matters a lot more than the shoes we wore to get there.

You know what really
Bring out your dead
Vicky Kramer Staff Writer email@example.com Chris Fravel Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org The typical know-it-all. I swear, I have a class with one every semester and it doesn’t get any less infuriating as time passes and knowledgeable and then there is being arrogant or even annoyingly outspoken. We’ll start with the more arrogant form of know-it-all. During my sophomore year I had a class where I sat next to a kid who just thought he knew him voicing his opinions regularly and contributing to class discussion on nearly every topic. Annoying? A little. Innocent? So I thought. As the semester wore on and the class got more comfortable with each other, this kid started to get much more “in-your-face” about things. One day a kid brought up an idea and immediately Mr. Know-it-all disputed it (without politely interjecting or raising his hand). He tore the original contributor apart, telling him how ridiculous his opinion was. I’m not kidding when I quote him directly as saying, “and don’t even begin to argue back with me because I know I’m smarter than you, buddy.” The whole situation got out-of-hand much too easily and Mr. Know-itall’s response was completely unwarranted and quite honestly, unwanted. How about the kid in your class that means well but seriously gets to the point where you think he’s trying to make the rest of the class look bad? You know, the kid who has all of the answers, but isn’t mean-spirited about it? That almost drives me crazier because most of the time, these kids don’t even realize what they’re doing. Before you go jumping on me about effort and class participation, realize that I’m not discrediting the kid’s desire to participate or be an active learner, because we all should strive for both of those goals. I simply get annoyed when one kid hogs all of the glory. Yeah, sure, you might know the answer right off the top of your head, but give the rest of us a second to process it because we might require a little longer to think about it. It’s not that we don’t like you, kid; it’s just that we want you to slow your roll a little bit so we can learn with you, not from you. Obviously know-it-all number one is much worse than know-it-all num-
What if people randomly began coming back from the dead? What if it happened and the opportunity arose to bring back someone of your own choice? Would you take advantage of it? On “Good Morning America,” these sorts of questions were posed in response to the new hit series on ABC, “Resurrection.” “Resurrection” tells the story of multiple families who have lost loved ones that suddenly seem to come back from the dead. The reanimation of these lost loved ones is a blessing and a curse to many of the families. “Resurrection” has two characters that have come back from the dead so far. Both characters were dead for many years before returning. When they returned, they were “dropped off” in places they had never been when they were alive. Neither character recalls dying, but they both have accurate recollections of thoughts when they came back to life. If this phenomenon was actually possible, would you want to experience someone coming back from the dead? What if you could choose who would come back? I would love to have this opportunity. There are so many people I would love to reconnect with and some who I would like to answer questions that remain unknown. First and foremost, I would bring back my grandfather. Many have heard the saying “if I only had
one more day.” This plays in my mind a lot and makes me think about what I would do if given the opportunity to be with my grandfather again. There are so many things I would want to tell him and do with him. The premise of “Resurrection” creates this scenario of the dead coming back. That being a possibility brings great comfort for a person missing a loved one. Aside from family, there are other people that I would bring back from the dead to ask some tantalizing questions. For example, I’d ask Amelia Earhart what really happened to her and if she landed her plane. I would also bring back major politiKing, Jr. and Rosa Parks. The scenario could be a utopia, but what’s the real cost of comfort, more time and answers? If humans were given the option to bring people back, that may not be a good thing. What if someone wants to bring a terrorist or a murderer? Not only would that affect the lives of the loves ones of their victims, but it would likely lead to more heinous crimes and the loss of more innocent lives. Humans have free will and There is an abundance of evil found in the world today. Giving us the choice to bring someone back to life and to decide who may not be in our best interest. Hopefully we’ll never have to worry about it. But just in case life ever does turn into “Resurrection,” let’s let nature take care of who it wants to come back; maybe the rest will take care of itself.
