U of L suspends hiring freeze, pushes enrollment increase KYELAND JACKSON @KYELANDJ
Acting Provost Dale Billingsley said a hiring freeze, implemented after a $48 million budget deficit shook the university two weeks ago, was temporarily lifted. He also proposed growing the student population to 30,000 students, a 36 percent jump, in an exclusive interview with The Cardinal March 2. “A formal freeze, in the sense of absolutely no hiring, was pretty much suspended (March 1) when we gave the academic units and the support units expense budget targets for the remainder of the year,” Billingsley said. “I told the deans and vice presidents at that time that they could make the commitments that they thought necessary for the strategic mission of their offices and their units.” The targets are based on 2016 spending and projected salary equity adjustments. But Billingsley said deans know some money will not be there next year, pushing deans to be frugal. Billingsley said shortfall means U of L will now take an “all funds view,” factoring assets, liabilities and other finances into the budget. “The deans and the vice presidents are going to have a load to carry that they haven’t always had to carry before,
because they haven’t been asked to reconcile revenues and expenditures in the way that they manage their units,” Billingsley said. Kimberly Kempf-Leonard, dean of Arts & Sciences - U of L’s largest academic unit, responded she was out of the office fundraising when questioned at the time of this article. Billingsley expects revenues will reduce the projected $48 million deficit as the university looks for income from students, grants and projects. Increased enrollment is an immediate revenue source, which he said trails other research universities U of L’s size. “Over the next several years, we’re going to try to increase that enrollment by about 8000,” Billingsley said, “so that we can be up to what looks like the threshold level for supporting a research university.” Though the athletics department could contribute money, Billingsely did not know if Interim President Greg Postel has asked they help. Applications for next year increased around 7.5 percent and U of L’s aiming for 600 more students than 2016. Billingsley said bolstering enrollment, like recruitment outside of Kentucky, can help fill the budget gap. Fewer tuition dollars than expected account for $10.6 million of the shortfall. Billingsley also said “significant deficits”
in clinical practices’ income contributes to the general fund’s $23.1 million deficit. Spending cuts rocked the university as units began reducing expenditures. Postel reduced his staff, via attrition, resignation or firing, from around 20 workers to five. Seven were fired Feb. 28. “A lot of these people were really nice people. Some of them had been at the university for 20 years. But we can’t afford it,” Postel said during the March 1 faculty senate meeting. Cuts forced reductions across U of L, stalling some salary rates and halting campus-wide salary adjustments and expenses. Regardless of cuts, Billingsley said the university will honor pre-scheduled promotion and tenure recommendations for 93 faculty. He anticipates budget constraints will strengthen the university. “I’m not happy about it. I’m not happy that we will probably lose good faculty and staff,” Billingsley said. “The only positive consequence of that, or one of the only positive consequences, is that at the end of what will be a very difficult and bitter process, I think we’ll have a stronger university.” Billingsley said concern for the budget grew in mid-January, preceding Postel’s reveal of a $48 million deficit during the Feb. 16 board of trustees meeting. That deficit is around four percent of the uni-
versity’s budget. Postel suggested budget cuts and new revenue options to help balance the budget, including curtailing the University of Louisville Foundation’s spending. ULF’s financial advisors said foundation spending was unsustainable, warning unabated spending would outstrip its resources in a December meeting. Billingsley revealed U of L’s net position has dropped from $96 million in 2011 to a deficit of $7 million by 2016. Plunging reserves could prompt Moody’s, a debt rating service, to downgrade U of L again. Moody’s lowered ULF’s rating in 2016 to negative. “This information, if replicated this year, is going to raise flags with Moody’s and SACS. And we don’t want any more attention from either of those distinguished bodies,” Billingsley said. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools placed U of L on probation in December, citing questionable governance and political influence from Gov. Matt Bevin’s acts. SACS recently questioned the relationship between ULF and the university, saying U of L possibly violated three more accrediting standards. The 2018 budget, finalized with a budget development committee’s guidance, will be presented to the board of trustees in June.
in his office were lost, via attrition, resignation or firing, to save money. Of the seven fired yesterday, six were staff. He assured staff are not being targeted. “I’m frustrated OK, and this is absolutely no fun. This is not the kind of work that we want to do,” Postel said. Postel said potential donors and revenue options could supplement funds. While ULF’s monitors the $730 million endowment, most funds are restricted and its spending amounts are capped un-
til a forensic audit on its finances completes. Faculty senate members also voted in support of the Student Government Administration’s resolution to bring U of L into ADA compliance for braille. SGA presidential candidate Keith Auspland sponsored the resolution, gaining support among SGA members. The faculty senate meets again April 5.
Amid budget cuts, faculty urge transparency KYELAND JACKSON @KYELANDJ
Faculty senate members urged transparency in their first meeting since Interim President Greg Postel revealed a $48 million budget shortfall. “I think we need to hold firm with the interim president that, throughout this budget process, the information is shared widely and publicly,” faculty senator Reg Bruce said. Bruce’s call mirrors a resolution penned by U of L’s American Association of University Professors, requesting financial statements and transparency from the university’s administration. That resolution was sent back during faculty assembly, requesting changes to its strong wording. Senators questioned Postel and Acting Provost Dale Billingsley in the March 1 meeting, who detailed changes needed to balance 2018’s budget. The current budget calls for drastic spending reductions across departments. Billingsley said the net position, unrestricted money free to spend after a fiscal year, of the university has plummeted since 2011. U of L’s net position dropped from $96 million in 2011 to a deficit of $7 million in 2016. Falling reserves could
This information, if replicated this year is going to raise flags with Moody’s and SACS. Dale Billingsley mean disapproval from Moody’s, the debt rating service who changed ULF’s debt rating in 2016 to negative, making money borrowing harder. “This information, if replicated this year, is going to raise flags with Moody’s and SACS. And we don’t want any more attention from either of those distinguished bodies,” Billingsley said. The 2018 budget, finalizing under a budgeting development committee’s guidance, expects board passage by June 15. Postel presented counter measures to the budget shortfall, including departmental budget caps and hiring and salary increases. Some resolutions will result in lay-offs, as Postel said nearly 20 workers

SGA candidates deny rumors of PAC support OLIVIA KRAUTH @OLIVIAKRAUTH
Some Student Government Association members worry outside political action committees are trying to sway the current election, a trend which other universities are facing. SGA Presidential candidate Georgiana “Georgie” Sook and slate partner and Executive Vice President candidate Kyle Bilyeu are rumored to have received campaign funding from a Politcal Action Committee. Multiple SGA officials confirmed to the Cardinal that they’re aware of the matter, but are unaware of its roots. Sook denied her campaign accepted funding from the Leadership Institute, which “teaches conservatives of all ages how to succeed in politics, government and the media,” according to its website. Vice President for the Campus Leadership Program Bryan Bernys said the institute focuses on training efforts and doesn’t normally support student government campaigns. Bernys said the Leadership Institute is not involved in the Sook-Bilyeu campaign and didn’t know of any U of L campaigns they were involved with. “Our campaign is 100 percent selffunded,” Sook said. “It’s a shame that we’re being smeared like this.”
All other presidential candidates - Abdul Hasib, Zoe Barrow, Jonas Bastien, Vishnu Tirumala, Keith Auspland and X’Zashea Lawson-Mayes - said they were not approached by any outside organizations offering campaign funds or resources. The alleged outside influence sparked a SGA resolution denouncing outside campaign contributions, according to a source close to the creation of the resolution, which passed in the SGA Senate Feb. 14. “In order to maintain effective representation of and action on behalf of the U of L student body only, it is in the best interest of the U of L Student Government Association to ensure its candidates and officials are free from influence in the form of outside, in-kind and monetary contributions,” the resolution reads. “It is the prerogative of the student body to hold all U of L Student Government Association candidates to a high moral and ethical standard, as they would represent student interests and only student interests if elected.” Speaker of the Senate Tyler Poteet said everyone, including Sook, voted in favor of the resolution, except for himself, who abstained. The resolution doesn’t make accepting outside contributions an election

violation, and the SGA general election rules do not define guidelines on outside contributions. SGA Chief Justice Sarah Pennington said the court can still sanction candidates for things not defined in the general election rules. “While any kind of monetary or inkind contribution would likely result in a complaint that required a hearing before the SGA Supreme Court, the court will make their decision based on the facts of the case and existing precedent,” Pennington said. SGA general election rules prohibit endorsements, including monetary and in-kind contributions, from recognized student organizations or U of L departments and affiliates. SGA candidates must submit a campaign value report, listing expenses and contributions, to the SGA Supreme Court.Campaign spending limits max out at $500 for presidential candidates. Other student government candidates in the state are in similar situations. One Student Body President candidate at the University of Kentucky, Fletcher Lyon, has been tied to alleged outside influence and to Sook. According to the Kentucky Kernel, Lyon called rumors his team accepted money from the conservative Leadership Institute “baseless.” “We’re not some organization that has an agenda that they want us to fulfill,” Lyon told the Kernel. Lyon said he’s not sure how he got involved, calling outside funded campaigns “unethical” in an interview with the Cardinal. He also said he isn’t tied to Sook through high school, noting they lived in Paducah and Owensboro, respectively. The Ohio State University newspaper, the Lantern, reported Turning Point USA, a conservative organization known for promoting limited government, plans on injecting money into an OSU Undergraduate Student Government campaign. According to leaked exchanges published by the Lantern, TPUSA reps have $6,000 to directly give to one campaign. Leaked texts from Kennedy Copeland, a TPUSA leadership director, said, “(Turning Point) is funding the campaign but that’s very hush hush. Liberals consis-
tently dominate campus student government and our goal is to take them out secretly without them knowing what’s coming.” According to a leaked phone conversation reported by the Lantern, Alana Mastrangelo, TPUSA’s Heartland Regional Director, said student government races are “really important” to TPUSA donors. Requests for comment from U of L’s TPUSA group were not immediately returned. “Partisan politics have no place in (undergraduate student government at OSU), period. Candidates should be accepting $$ from outside groups to fund their campaigns,” Danielle Di Scala, OSU’s USG Vice President, tweeted Feb. 28. “The rumors and allegations, and now proof as seen by what is happening at Ohio State, that PACs and political coalitions are trying to influence student government elections is deeply troubling. The goal of student government isn’t to be partisan, but to be an institution that works to serve all students in the hope of improving the student experience,” U of L SGA President Aaron Vance said. “Sometimes we track legislation and we head to the capital to advocate on behalf of the student body, but that’s to the extent that this job should be focused on politics. This role is apolitical and anything trying to change that is worrisome.” The incoming SGA President steps into a seat on U of L’s Board of Trustees, as well as the next presidential and provost search committees. He or she may also gain at seat on U of L Foundation’s Board of Directors, a spot Vance has been fighting for throughout his term. The foundation controls U of L’s $737 million endowment. After a delay in ballots, voting in SGA elections closed March 2. Tune into the Cardinal’s social media and online coverage to follow the results.

Scholarship honoring Cardinal writer accelerated SHELBY BROWN @BROSHEA91
Students will be able to apply for a scholarship in memory of Cardinal writer Ryan Considine a year early. The 2017 Ryan M. Considine Scholarship is for students pursuing a career in journalism and interested in writing about music, one of Ryan’s passions. Considine was a Cardinal writer who died July 10, weeks before his graduation. His diploma was awarded posthumously. “My husband, Bob, and my son, Colin, and I were humbled and amazed at the generosity of the university when we recently learned that the scholarship would be awarded this spring, ahead of schedule,” Ryan’s mother, Mary Considine said.
Initially, the scholarship was set for the 2018-2019 year with a $10,000 donation from Considine’s family. Communication Department Chair Al Futrell proposed the department supplement the family’s funds during a faculty meeting so the $500 scholarship could be awarded this year. “The Department of Communication whole-heartedly embraced this initiative, as Ryan was one of the department’s finest journalism students,” communication professor Nick Paliewicz said. Paliewicz serves on U of L’s scholarship committee. “It is clear that he touched many people’s lives,” Paliewicz said. “He is surely missed by fellow students and colleagues and faculty. It is clear that Ryan left an
impression on the department, and we are so happy to commemorate him with this scholarship which, we hope, will serve as a living memory of Ryan and the inspiration he provided so many.” Students must apply by April 7 at noon. Those interested should submit a cover letter, writing sample and resume. The website is being constructed and flyers will be posted on campus soon. “Although our hearts are broken, his legacy will live on through the scholarship in his name,” Mary Considine said. Ryan’s coursework focused on journalism, frequently writing his byline in the Cardinal and covering topics for the news, features and opinion sections. Additionally, he was a founding member of U of L’s student chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

SGA outlines end-of-year budget allocations
SHELBY BROWN @BROSHEA91
SGA President Aaron Vance says the administration’s remaining budget has been allocated to projects and initiatives campus wide. “I wanted to talk about the SAC plan fund and the L Trail plan fund and our commitment to inclusivity, diversity, safety and to the student experience,” Vance said. “We wanted to go ahead and establish a new plant fund and go ahead and put money into two more plant funds.” Plant funds are for physical or capital projects. The L Trail Vance says SGA has invested $20,000 of the remaining budget into the initiative. “That’ll help us extend in conjunction with a grant that has been given to the university so we can continue to expand the L Trail and change out lighting now starting around the perimeters of campus and the tunnels.” Vance said. The L Trail is a lit pathway that travels through Belknap campus marked by “L” signs. The trail’s goal is to provide a safer experience for students walking on campus at night. The Identity Center / Center for Social Change “This year, we decided that we were going to at least put in another $10,000,” Vance said. “So we went ahead and made that plant fund transfer for a grand total of $26,000 that we will use to help aid in once we finally get this project off the ground.” Vance said that he and former SGA president Victoria Allen created a plant fund of $16,000 for the Identity Center last year. Currently, donors and support are being sought. Vance said Vice Pro-
fairs Mordean Taylor-Archer is working with students to develop a plan and figure out numbers. “Granted, I don’t know, most capital projects are going to be stalled at least for the coming year while we work through the budget but we agree and we are going to continue to advocate for what will either be the Center for Social Change or the new Identity Center as a place to house all of those student services for the student population that need access to a place for these services,” Vance said. Vance hopes it will house student groups like the Women’s Center and the LGBTQ Center.
I wanted to talk about ... our commitment to inclusivity, diversity safety and to the student experience. -Aaron Vance Incidental projects The SGA is also working with the Dean of Students Office and Student Affairs to set aside money for incidentals. Vance suggested funds could support projects in the new SAC like developing more spaces dedicated to RSOs. SGA also suggested improvements on the Red Barn. “We went ahead and put $6,000 more towards the new library hours to continue to extend those through the rest of the semester and I hope that next year’s Top Four will heartily consider that,” Vance said. Vance said students can look forward
to the State of the Student Body address and another Cards in Action lobbying trip to Frankfort. SGA is working with the Student Athletic Advisory Council, the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and the PEACC center to kick off “It’s On Us,” a sexual assault awareness campaign. “In the next couple weeks, Attorney General (Andy Beshear will be) coming to campus to speak on his new Voice of Justice program that he’s rolling out across the state to bring awareness to these issues and the resources that his office can provide for survivors and people that may want to see more justice and attention brought to these issues,” Vance said. SGA is also hoping to put more money aside for undergraduate travel. Vance says travel requests have gone up significantly this year. “We’re only halfway through the spring semester and we’ve already spent it all,” he said. “Which is a good thing be-
(It’s) what we’ve been trying to do throughout the entire year to increase the student experience... -Aaron Vance and that students are traveling but we know that there’s still more conferences.” Vance said the method of budget allocation is meant to tie back in with the goals, values and commitments of the university. “(It’s) what we’ve been trying to do throughout the entire year to increase the student experience, to continue to advance inclusivity and equality on our campus and to help work towards these smaller incidental things,” Vance said.

Twenty One Pilots’ concert rocks Louisville BRIANA WILLIAMS @_BRIANAYW
Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun are men of many talents, and perhaps one of their best is putting on a show. The duo, known as Twenty One Pilots, took the stage at the KFC Yum! Center on Mar. 5. Alternative band Judah and the Lion and rapper, singer and songwriter, Jon Bellion, opened the show with an array of guitar solos, head-banging and song mash-ups. Bellion sang his top 10 hit “All Time Low” minutes before closing out his performance and leaving the stage for the headliners. Since the band’s 2009 formation, Twenty One Pilots has reached fame and success with a number of singles released
and four albums and EPs. Their Louisville show comes as the last arena U.S. show in their Emotional Roadshow Tour. The tour began last year and will end in June at the Firefly Music Festival. The sold-out concert began with a pounding, short rendition of “Fairly Local.” Joseph and Dun donned ski masks for the first few songs, before taking them off as Joseph is revealed to be among the audience. Then they continued the show with their ecclectic “Heavydirtysoul.” Thoughout the show, the LED screens behind them projected animations of various art that centered around the “Blurryface” album them. The sporadic and exhilarating light show was overwhelming, but only enhanced the already
exciting show. About halfway through, the duo moved to the center stage, among the venue’s pit. They slowed it down, singing a heart-wrenching performance of “Cancer” and a medley of songs from previous albums. Later, the group invited the opening acts back on the front stage with them to sing covers of songs from The Black Eyed Peas and Blackstreet. Joseph broke away from his mic plenty of times throughout the night to crowdsurf. At one point, Joseph jumped in a giant inflatable ball and rolled around the pit before settling back on stage to perform “Ride.” As the concert came to a close, Twenty One Pilots performed their massive hits, “Stressed Out,” “Tear In My Heart”
and “Car Radio,” causing a final stir of pandemonium in an audience not quite ready to go home. After a show with a mix of songs from “Vessels” and “Blurryface,” it seemed like the concert was over too soon. Twenty One Pilots performed the concert with passion and genuine love for the crowd. The Ohio natives described Louisville as feeling just like home and said the city always welcomes them with open arms. As a flood of red confetti fell from the arena ceiling, closing out the dynamic and powerful concert for good, Dun and Joseph stood side by side at center stage thanking their fans and promising to return.

Steel City Pops is everywhere. For nearly a year, I’ve seen and heard so much about this little restaurant. Several events on campus have given them away for free, but they’ve always sold out as soon as I get there. I finally decided to go out and taste one of these popsicles everyone raved about. In a word, it was phenomenal. In several words, it put all other desserts to shame. Steel City Pops describes their popsicles as “gourmet,” and if you’re mistaken if you think that may be unnecessary. Gone are the popsicle days of frozen juice packets. Steel City Pops provides a wide variety of refreshing popsicles which are nothing short of the ideal summertime snack. I first tried the gourmet of the gourmet pops - the cookies and cream popsicle. With actual cookie pieces inside of it, it was like tasting a frozen cookies and cream candy bar. Then I tried the root beer float pop. Honestly, I was still reeling from the deliciousness of the cookies and cream pop, but I still really liked it.
I got more hints of just root beer than an actual root beer float, but it was delicious. My third and final popsicle of the trip was the lime one. It wasn’t my favorite of the three I tried, and I probably won’t get it again, but I’d recommend it to others. It’s not too sour and tastes more like a lemon-lime drink than just a mouthful of lime. Spending $3-$4.50 on a popsicle may seem like somewhat of a waste, especially if you’re strapped for cash, but Steel City Pops is worth it. As summer draws close, you may get tired of the typical ice cream treat. And when you do, Steel City Pops will be there with no shortage of great popsicles.

Card Towne’s best restaurants to eat BRIANA WILLIAMS @_BRIANAYW
Cardinal Towne is home to hundreds of students and plenty of restaurants. The area is surrounded by good food options which students can easily walk to when they’re tired of on-campus eateries. Most of the restaurants are kind to our wallets and provide a lot of food for the price. But some rise above the rest, and if you’re going to spend all of your money on food, why not spend it on the good stuff? Here are Card Towne’s best restaurants to eat: Griff’s: Griff’s is one of the more expensive options in Card Towne, but it won’t put a hole in your wallet. The restaurant offers a bar-style menu and atmosphere. Going here and watching U of L games is a fun experience, and you may be lucky enough to see Darrell Griffith, the restaurant owner and former U of L basketball star. The overall environment is chill and the staff is nice. Go to Griff’s when your family comes to visit or when you want to watch a game with friends. As for the food, it’s definitely worth the slightly higher price. The sweet potato waffle fries with praline sauce are one of the best sides the restaurant has to offer. Upgrading to this from the regular fries is highly recommended. Pair those with some of Griff’s signature wings or sandwiches, like the fried chicken sandwich, and you’ve got a great meal. Jimmy John’s: Everyone knows Jimmy John’s for their fast service, but their sandwiches are also great. If you have no desire for Subway anymore, Jimmy John’s is a worthy upgrade. The Turkey Tom and the Big John are classic options anyone can love. If you’re more adventurous, try the Italian Night Club or the Hunter’s club. Both are hefty options and you’ll most likely have leftovers. The Jimmy John’s environment is casual, especially since people usually don’t sit in there except during the lunch rush INTRODUCING UOFL'S NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED HONOR SOCIETY

and sometimes around dinner. And if you don’t even want to leave the privacy of your room, have it delivered. Noodles and Company: For those who prefer pasta over sandwiches, Noodles and Company is the restaurant for you. With globe-spanning options, Noodles and Company has something for everyone. The Wisconsin Mac and Cheese and Alfredo MontAmore are some of the most delicious options on the menu. The best part about this restaurant is the ability to create your own bowl of pasta. You can choose your kind of pasta, sauce and add a protein to your dish if nothing else on the menu looks appealing. Home Run Burgers: While Home Run isn’t necessarily the best burger you can get, U of L doesn’t have many other places to get a decent burger. Home Run isn’t as great as Five Guys or Chillburger, but they are a great substitute when you’d rather stay close to campus. The fries are also pretty impeccable. Mt. Fuji: Finally, there’s Mt. Fuji. Its notorious Yum Yum Sauce is half the reason it’s on this list. Mt. Fuji offers delicious Japanese cuisine from sushi to hibachi. The shrimp hibachi smothered in Yum Yum sauce is my favorite menu item and the chicken hibachi is a close second. Sometimes, I head to Mt. Fuji even if I don’t want food at all. They have delicious smoothies with a wide variety of fruit options and their bubble tea is an interesting drink everyone should try at least once. Comfy Cow: Even though you can’t order an actual dinner from Comfy Cow, you can head there for dessert and have plenty of options to consider. From smoothies and cake to ice cream and chocolate-dipped bananas, Comfy Cow has no shortage of menu items that’ll satisfy your sweet tooth. My favorite ice cream is the Cake batter-up with sprinkles. 10/10 would recommend.

Poppin’ pizza places: where to get the best slice in Louisville BRIANA WILLIAMS @_BRIANAYW
If you’re not one of the lucky ones who’ll be traveling somewhere over spring break, you’ll probably spend it in your room, catching up on shows and eating pizza. Louisville has no shortage of pizza places and many of them have better pizza than the big chains. Mellow Mushroom is a favorite and the host of many percentage nights for U of L organizations. The restaurant has a wide variety of interesting pizza options and stands out from other pizza places because it sells burgers as well. The burgers are pretty good, but the pizza is the real star of Mellow Mushroom. From barbecue chicken and smoked bacon pizza to pizza topped with pineapples, jerk chicken and jalapeños, Mellow Mushroom is easily one of the most unique menus of any pizza place. Wick’s Pizza Parlor & Pub is a local pizzeria that has more traditional menu options and pizza taste, but is equally as delicious. The pizza will be what you know and love, but with the homestyle
feel you don’t get from pizza empires like Domino’s or Pizza Hut. Another local favorite is Spinelli’s. One of Spinelli’s’ most outrageous pizzas is the chicken and waffles pizza. Topped with a sweet base sauce, mozzarella cheese, fried chicken, waffles and a drizzle of maple syrup, the pizza is impressive and daunting. The taco pizza is another unique masterpiece that has taco sauce, mozzarella and cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and beef. If you’re not feeling too adventurous, the restaurant offers more traditional pizzas which are just as amazing to sink your teeth into. A pizzeria with an authentic feel is Bearno’s. Bearno’s pizza is tame compared to that of a chicken and waffles pizza, but it has pizzas that’ll satisfy your craving for a huge slice of pizza. Trying all of these places out is where the struggle begins, but with spring break you’ll hopefully have plenty of time to check out these different restaurants. At the very least, you can say you had some weird pizza.
McAlister’s Deli one of U of L’s best restaurants MADISON THOMPSON @THECARDINALNEWS
McAlister’s is easily one of U of L’s best restaurants, one that every student should try at least once. It is well known for a diverse menu, with options ranging from starters, entrée salads, spuds, sandwiches and their classic sweet tea. McAlister’s Deli has been on U of L’s campus for years, but many students avoid going there because of how far away it is from popular spots like the Business School or Strickler and Davidson. There are a variety of choices available to the customer. A convenient feature is nearly everything on the menu can be mixed and matched. The McAlister’s staff is friendly and helpful. They are willing to offer suggestions if a customer is unsure of what they want, and the food deliverers are equally as friendly and create a pleasant experience. McAlister’s is also home to everyone’s favorite U of L employee, Mr. Jim. The food is delicious. A personal favorite of mine are the restaurant’s popular spuds. The spuds are hot, fresh and not your average potato. They’re huge and will leave you full for almost the rest of the day. And like the sandwiches, the customer can choose whatever toppings they’d like on the spud. A cheese spud with green onions and bacon is the perfect lunch.
What’s best about McAlister’s is its healthy options. On a campus with a lack of lighter options, McAlister’s fulfills this need easily. There are plenty of salads, wraps and sandwiches under 500 calories which can satisfy anyone looking for a healthier meal during the day. Such a diverse menu comes at a price. The lines and the wait to receive food is longer than the average restaurant on campus, especially at lunch hours. If a customer arrives before the lunch hour rush, the line will be short and the wait won’t be too bad. But when the clock strikes noon, the lines go past the door. This is an easy fix when ordering Tapingo, but if the app is down one day or you simply forget to order in class, don’t be surprised if you’re at McAlister’s for close to an hour. Another con of McAlister’s is its early hours. They close at 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 3 p.m. on Fridays and are closed on weekends. Since most students don’t eat dinner before five, McAlister’s is really a brunch, lunch and late lunch option. Don’t be surprised if they close about ten minutes before five either. Despite the long lines and frustrating hours, McAlister’s is a campus favorite which any student can enjoy. The relaxed environment, friendly staff, delicious food and signature sweet tea makes this place great.

Trump administration redefines “fake” news NICK AMON
A new age is upon us. An age where media outlets and news organizations alike have become a target of not only our wet-eared Oval Office, but generally anyone who feels information that’s being reported doesn’t fall within their political preference. The age of “fake news” has arrived and the conversation surrounding the matter has begun. Whether it’s President Donald Trump or his vociferous press secretary Sean Spicer, the Oval Office has armed itself to fight against this age of “fake news.” Many in Trump’s office, including himself, have made it clear they will not entertain the idea of misleading coverage regarding their actions. Remember that press conference Trump held in midFebruary? Nearly an hour was dedicated to warning any news organization which threatens to take on Trump during his time as president. In this new administration’s opinion, what exactly is “fake news?” Well, if we’re using Trump’s rhetoric, just turn on your T.V. and find out. According to Trump, major media outlets such as the New York Times, NBC News, ABC, CBS and CNN are considered to be “fake news.” Trump believes this so much, he’s labeled these outlets as the “enemy of the American people” and my personal favorite, “the opposition party.” When it comes to “fake news,” you would assume when Trump and his subsidiaries reference it, the articles and coverage they’re speaking of are riddled with lies. That isn’t the case. Although many of the media outlets are skeptical of his policies and behavior, this doesn’t mean their reporting is fake. The media criticizes politicians and presidents alike. However, what’s different in this administration is Trump has personally demonized any media outlet that produces content even relatively skeptical of his office. Say something that he disagrees with? It must be fake news. There’s nothing wrong with classifying things for what they are. If news stories are literally based on false narratives and sensationalized events, they should be considered fake. However, the underlying problem of all this is the stories which are blatantly fake aren’t the ones
being called out by our president and his office. Why is this? The new administration isn’t interested in separating fact from fiction. They are interested in separating the stories which coddle the president from those that hold him accountable. As if the president’s recent autocratic rhetoric hasn’t been scary enough, according to a recent Emerson College poll, over half the country said they trust the White House over the media. What’s even more compelling is Kentuckians are following suit. According to Allison Grimes’ Kentucky Civic Health Index, over half the Kentuckians in the state distrust the media – something that could’ve possibly helped Trump take home our Bluegrass state back in November. De-legitimizing the press is a dangerous path to take for any president. Not only does it scream that you feel as if you’re above those whose job it is to hold you accountable while in office, but it foreshadows a future of tightening restrictions on the first amendment. Since the first amendment has such a
pivotal role in creating a viable democracy, Trump’s assault on the press should raise red flags for everyone, regardless of political affiliation. Even former Republican President George W. Bush understands the importance of having an independent media, saying “Power can be very addictive and it can be corrosive, and it’s important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power.”
They are interested in separating the stories which coddle the president from those that hold him accountable Funny enough, many would argue Bush was an enormous target of the media during his time in office. What’s
important to ask is, did Bush throw temper tantrums at the media who criticized him? No, he continued to do his job and acknowledged the importance of media in our society, regardless if he was in their favor or not. Maybe Trump should take some notes. No matter how critical I may be of the guy, Trump has managed to teach me a few things. Not only has he taught me spray tans don’t look good when you’re 70 years old, he’s also taught me that “fake news” doesn’t necessarily mean it’s actually fake. He’s taught me that to convince the public what you’re doing is right, you don’t actually have to be right. Instead, what you have to do is undermine the credibility of those who say you’re wrong, and in return, put the attention back on them. Although I may not be a supporter of the man, I have to admit, he sure does have a few things up his sleeve. Scarily enough, I think he’s just getting started.

Women’s tennis cracks top 50
DALTON RAY @DRAY5477
When women’s tennis coach Mark Beckham created his 2017 schedule, he wanted to create a steady increase in difficulty heading into conference play. With challenging opponents against Western Kentucky, Georgia State and Marshall prior to ACC play, the Cardinals are right where they need to be at 10-2. “The win at Marshall was big. It helped us get into the top 50. After that, we were ranked No. 49 and once we beat Pittsburgh we bumped up to No. 45, so we’re moving in the right direction,” Beckham said. “When I put the schedule together, I knew it would put us in the situation we’re in. Putting the schedule together is one thing, you have to go out and take advantage of it. And, for the most part, we have.” The Cardinals lost to Georgia State and conference foe Notre Dame. Against Georgia State, Louisville flashed their potential. Jumping up 3-1 against the Panthers, a NCAA tournament team last year, U of L dropped the final three points to lose 4-3. Louisville answered with wins over Miami (OH) and Marshall. Against the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame, Louisville
fell 5-2. While it seems like a lopsided victory, the Cardinals pushed the No. 27 team in the country. Tied at 2-2, Notre Dame’s Rachel Chong defeated senior Olivia Boesing 7-6 (7-2), 6-3. Allison Miller clinched in the match by beating junior Mariana Humberg 7-5, 7-5. On the final court, Zoe Spence edged junior Abbie Pahz 6-7 (8-10), 7-5, 1-0 (11-9). Beckham could tell his team is different through this loss. “I feel like we are different from teams from years past because I am not sure those teams would have put themselves in the position to win the match like this one did. We didn’t win but we legitimately put ourselves in a position to win four points,” Beckham said. After the win over Pitt, Louisville beat Southern Illinois for their 10th win. Louisville has been stellar in doubles. The Cardinals have not dropped a doubles point this year, giving them a 1-0 lead every match. Their top duos of Mariana Humberg/Abbie Pahz, Boesing/ Sena Suswam and Jessie Paul/Ariana Rodriguez are a combined 21-5. While the 2017 team is undoubtedly better than the previous two, but Beckham still battles to keep his team in the

right mentality. “This team is different and I have to remind them. There are scars from the previous two seasons, so self-doubt creeps in a little bit,” Beckham said. Louisville travels to Clemson on March 10 and to fifth-ranked Georiga Tech March 12. Of the remaining 14 matches, 12 are against conference opponents.
“Right now, I feel like we fit somewhere in the middle (of the ACC). We’re still improving and where we are now isn’t where we will be in a month. Some of these other teams, due to their makeup, are who they are. We can get into that next level, we just have some work to do,” Beckham said.
Men’s swim and dive finish second in ACC Championships MICAH BROWN, JORDAN SHIM & MIKE GILPATRICK
The men’s swim and dive team finished the ACC Championships in second place and claimed two ACC records on the final day. NC State scored 1,297.5 points, topping the Cards’ 1,134. Louisville set three school records, won two gold, two silver and a bronze medal overall. Louisville claimed two medals while breaking three school records in the first day. In the 200-medley relay, the team of Grigory Tarasevich, Carlos Claverie, Josh Quallen and Trevor Carroll won silver, posting a time of 1:23.34 – the second fastest time in the nation. The Cardinals set another school re-
cord in the 800 free relay with a time of 6:12.30. Winning another silver, the team was composed of Tarasevich, Carroll, Zach Harting and Matthias Lindenbauer. North Carolina State won gold with the nation’s fastest time of 6:09.82. The Cardinals jumped from eighth to second place on day two. “We always want more, but overall, a very good day for us,” coach Arthur Albiero said on day two. “The prelim session was outstanding in that it set us up for very important points in the finals. In fact, Marcelo Acosta set a school record in the 500-free this morning.” Harting finished fifth in the 500 free A-final with a 4:16.67, out-touching Acosta who went 4:16.68 for sixth. Lindenbauer was fifth in the B-final in 4:20.83. Seventh in the B-final went to
freshman Jarrett Jones with a 4:23.00. Jake Schultz took fifth in the C-final with a 4:23.52. In the 200-IM, Tarasevich won the B-final with a time of 1:44.26, just holding off Quallen in second (1:44.66). Jonathan Zoucha was fifth with a 1:45.04 and Claverie was seventh with a 1:45.08. In the C-final, Etay Gurevich was second (1:46.05) and Keegan Foulke was third (1:46.34). In the 50-free A-final, Carroll touched fourth in 19.40. Andrej Barna won the Bfinal with a 19.49. David Boland tied for seventh in 20.05. In the 200 free relay, Barna (19.76), David Boland (19.51), Quallen (19.25) and Lindenbauer (19.60) combined for a 1:18.12. NC State won with an A-cut time of 1:16.27.
Acosta won gold in the 1650-freestyle with an ACC record time of 14:33.68, beating the previous record of 14:35.12 set by Matt McLean in 2009. Acosta broke his own school record by almost 14 seconds. Tarasevich set the ACC meet record in the 200-backstroke after going 25.24 seconds in the final 50 to win the gold. “Our guys performed with great heart tonight, but really all week long,” Albiero said on the final night. “Big upset wins tonight with new ACC Records for Marcelo Acosta and Grigory Tarasevich. Our seniors continue to set the standard and now we have an opportunity to go compete at the NCAA Championships with a great group of men.” Up next is the NCAA Championship from March 22-25.

Mangok Mathiang shines on senior day CONNER FARRELL @CONNERFARRELL9
The menâ€™s basketball teamâ€™s 7164 win over Notre Dame resembled previous down-to-the-wire nail bitters. On senior day, center Mangok Mathiang walked away with a career-high 18 points. Averaging 6.9 points per game, Mathiang said to have a performance he did in front of the fans meant a lot. â€œItâ€™s a great way to go out. These fans have been with us through thick and thin,â€? Mathiang said. â€œCoach said to go into their bigs and get (Bonzie) Colson in foul trouble. I took that personal and attacked the basket.â€? The Sudan native didnâ€™t enter the game with a different mindset, but he was aware of the game he was having. â€œI was just going with the flow of the game but as the game kept going on, the moments just kept getting sweeter and sweeter,â€? Mathiang said.
Not to be overlooked by the stellar offensive play, Mathiang grabbed 11 boards for his second straight double-double and his third on the season. The impressive showing caps what has been an up-and-down year for Mathiang. Beginning the year as a starter, the center has been in and out of the starting lineup. Mathiang also spent four games sidelined by injury and spent another suspended, which led to the loss of his captain title. Being with the team since 2012, it feels like Mathiang has been on the team forever. During the senior day ceremonies, coach Rick Pitino jokingly said that Mathiang turns 40 this year, but Pitino was all praises after the game. â€œMangok gave us a great lift tonight with a great basketball game,â€? Pitino said. â€œI was so happy for (him) and the way he went out.â€? Mathiang has played in 111 games, scoring 511 points and grabbing 533 rebounds. His 141 blocks places him 10th all-time in Louisville history.
