Former Wisconsin Democratic senator Russ Feingold visited Marquette Thursday to talk about politics, broaching topics such as the current presidential election, campaign finance reform, American exceptionalism and foreign relations. Feingold was at Marquette for the law school’s “On the Issues” segment with Mike Gousha. The event was filled to capacity with approximately 230

people attending, said Christine Wilcyzynski-Vogel, associate dean for external relations, events and facilities. Feingold represented Wisconsin in the Senate for four terms, from 1993 until he was defeated in the 2010 election by current senator Ron Johnson. During the spring and fall 2011 semesters, he was a visiting professor at Marquette Law School. He currently serves as one of the co-chairs for President Obama’s re-election campaign. In regard to last Wednesday’s presidential debate in Denver, which many news sources said was won by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Feingold took a more positive See Feingold, page 7

DPS Reports

News in Brief Gov. Walker subpoenaed Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was subpoenaed Friday to testify in the criminal trial of a former aide, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday. The aide, Kelly M. Rindfleisch, worked as Walker’s deputy chief of staff in 2010 while Walker was Milwaukee County executive and the Republican candidate for governor. She is accused of four felony misconduct charges for doing campaign work while being employed for the county. State law says public employees cannot do campaign work in public buildings or while at a government job. Her trial is scheduled to start Oct. 15.

Election polls show no clear winner Polls are just as undecided as voters regarding who will win the presidential election in November. A Gallup poll released Monday has President Barack Obama winning the race with 49 percent of likely voters if the election was held today, while 46 percent would vote for Republican candidate Mitt Romney — within the 3-percent margin of error. Results of the poll are based on telephone interviews with 1,387 registered voters, 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states between Oct. 4 and 6. However, a poll conducted by the Pew Research Center released yesterday shows Romney leading the president. According to this poll, if the election was held today, 49 percent of likely voters said they would support Romney while 45 percent said they would support Obama. The Pew poll interviewed 1,511 voters over the telephone

living in all 50 U.S. states between Oct. 4 and 7 and had a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

Former admin. assistant dies Alice Miller, who worked as an administrative assistant at Marquette for 17 years, died Sept. 29 after a five-year battle with ovarian cancer at age 78. Miller retired from the university in 1999. She worked in the office of the president, the school of dentistry and the law school. After retirement, Miller joined the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies, a choreographed dance/pompom parade group, and traveled the state. In 2007, Miller made the Milwaukee Bucks Seniorgee, a dance team for women and men at least 60 years old. Miller is survived by her husband, seven children and 15 grandchildren.

HIC cautious about Chinese companies After a yearlong investigation, the House Intelligence Committee recommended Monday that American companies should be blocked from pursuing mergers and acquisitions with two Chinese telecommunications firms because it believes their equipment could be used for spying within the U.S. A report on the inquiry labeled the two companies, Huawei Technologies and ZTE Inc., “national security threats,” noting that the committee had obtained internal documents from former employees of Huawei showing their supply of services to a cyberwarfare unit in China’s People’s Liberation Army. At a news conference in Beijing

on Monday before the release of the report, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said the two telecommunications companies conducted themselves “in accordance with the principles of a market economy,” adding that he hopes “the United States will respect the facts, abandon prejudice and do more things conducive to ChinaU.S. economic and trade cooperation, rather than the opposite.” The report was presented by Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD), the top Democrat on the committee. Both President Barack Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney have taken tough stances on China during the current presidential campaign. The Obama administration filed a case this month at the World Trade Organization accusing China of unfairly subsidizing its exports of automobiles and auto parts.

Facebook reaches one billion users Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced Thursday morning that the social media giant has more than one billion people using the site actively each month. Zuckerberg said in a statement posted on the site, “helping a billion people connect is amazing, humbling and by far the thing I am most proud of in my life.” According to Facebook, there have been 140.3 billion friend connections since the site launched in February 2004. “I am committed to working every day to make Facebook better for you, and hopefully together one day we will be able to connect the rest of the world too,” Zuckerberg said.

GM documentary premieres Film about plant closing focuses on Janesville residents By Alexandra Whittaker

Two days before Christmas in 2008, a General Motors plant closed down in Janesville, Wis., causing a negative ripple effect throughout the town and driving up unemployment rates. A movie at the Milwaukee Film Festival that first aired Saturday, titled “As Goes Janesville” attempts to accurately portray the angst that resulted from the plant closing from a non-political perspective, instead focusing on the impact of the c losing on Janesville residents. While political figures, including President Obama and vice presidential candidate and Janesville native Paul Ryan have talked about the predicament facing the town in “As Goes Janesville,” the documentary itself is not actually about politicians, or even about the politics of what occurred. It is about how a community built on a century-old GM plant tries to recover from the aftermath of its termination. The film strives to foster empathetic views toward all characters involved, regardless of political viewpoints.

“It was really emotional for me,” said moviegoer and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student Rachel Moore, whose uncle worked in the plant in Janesville before it closed. “I just never really understood why it was this big deal, but I feel like I do now. It makes me understand my uncle better. It makes me understand that town a whole lot better. It kind of made me understand Wisconsin better.” The film’s release at the festival comes on the heels of a political ad from the American Future Fund that has been airing in both Wisconsin and Minnesota since mid-September.The ad claims Obama told residents of Janesville the plant would be around for a hundred years, just a few months before it shut down. Paul Ryan issued a similar criticism during the Republican National Convention, implying that Obama was to blame for the closing. “My home state voted for President Obama. When he talked about change, many people liked the sound of it, especially in Janesville, where we were about to lose a major factory. A lot of guys I went to high school with worked at that GM plant,” Ryan said at the convention. “Right there at that plant, candidate Obama said ‘I believe that if our government is there to support you … this plant will be here for another hundred years.’

That’s what he said in 2008. Well, as it turned out, that plant didn’t last another year. It is locked up and empty to this day. And that’s how it is in so many towns today, where the recovery that was promised is nowhere in sight.” The movie, which was made before Ryan started talking about it on the campaign trail, did not focus on Ryan or Obama, though Obama did speak to Janesville residents four years ago before the 2008 presidential election shortly before the plant closed, trying to foster trust in the government. “I know that General Motors received some bad news yesterday, and I know how hard your governor has fought to keep jobs in this plant. But I also know how much progress you’ve made — how many hybrids and fuel-efficient vehicles you’re churning out,” Obama said then. “And I believe that if our government is there to support you, and give you the assistance you need to re-tool and make this transition, that this plant will be here for another hundred years.” While Ryan’s Republican National Convention speech implies that Obama had misled Janesville residents into believing that the plant would survive, the closure of the plant was planned before Obama even became president, according to CNN Fact Check, and there was little that could be done to salvage it.

Cash Cab LIMO quizzes students for second year MUSG program asks students MU-related questions for prizes By Ben Greene

The Marquette CashCab was back in action last weekend, giving one LIMO’s lucky riders the chance to win up to $25 in Starbucks, Jimmy John’s or Sobelman’s gift cards. The Cash Cab, which ran from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, is sponsored by Marquette Student Government and the Department of Public Safety. As special eventsco-commissioner for MUSG, Tara Vandygriff, a junior in the College of Communication, played a major role in planning the Cash Cab’s second annual, one-weekend run. “It’s a unique event for a couple of reasons,” Vandygriff said. “First of all, we take the event to the students instead of the students coming to us. Most people ride the LIMOs anyway, so it’s a pretty unique program in that way. And also because we utilize student safety and DPS, who are not typically featured through Marquette Student Government events.” Jamie Mikolajczak, a junior in the College of Arts & Sciences, drove the Cash Cab on Friday night. She said the program is helpful because it provides students with more than just money. “The most important thing is that the students learn the systems that we have,” Mikolajczak said. “If they know how to use

them, they’re going to be able to get to their destination quicker; they’re going to be happier with the services that we provide; and it’s going to be beneficial to the whole campus.” Vandygriff said the original idea, based on the popular Discovery Channel game show, was hatched in a brainstorming session at an MUSG retreat three years ago. “We have people from

Marquette Student Government sitting on a LIMO,” Vandygriff said, “and once a student gets on the LIMO, and they sit in the Cash Cab seat and the LIMO drives away, we jump in their face and let them know that they are in the Marquette Cash Cab and we give them the option to play.” Over the course of the weekend, more than 100 riders sat in the lucky seat, and 36 of them

opted to play. The trivia game consisted of three questions of increasing difficulty, with each correct answer earning the contestant a $5 gift card. Once students accrued $15 in winnings, they could either stop playing and keep the money, or risk it all for the chance to answer one final question for $25. Only 16 players made it to the $15 threshold; 10 of them risked it for an additional $10 and nine

got their final question correct. Friday night’s first $25 winner, David Stern, a junior in the College of Health Sciences, said his experience on the Cash Cab will likely make him use the LIMO system even more. “I knew they were always there, and I knew they were helpful,” Stern said, “but I think it will make me want to take the LIMOs more often because it’s like, ‘Why not?’”

Student-run newspaper shuts down for semester ‘The Warrior’ taking a break, moving from print to digital media

By Jenny Zahn

After eight years of publishing as Marquette’s alternative, independent, student-run news

source, The Warrior is on hiatus and ceasing print operations. But that doesn’t mean it’s finished, said Scott Genz, a graduate student in the school of management and chairman of The Warrior’s board of directors. “The Warrior is still going to be around,” Genz said. “We’re not shutting down – we’re taking a break for the semester as we take a look at how to make it a long-term, viable business.”

‘The Warrior’ was first published in 2004 as an independent news source.

As chairman, Genz provides guidance to The Warrior’s staff and helps ensure the publication meets its budgetary obligations. The Warrior’s board of directors will convene this semester to discuss the future of the publication. “Given the continually rising costs of publishing, newspapers weren’t making financial sense anymore,” Genz said. “We’re going to look for other alternatives and how The Warrior will carry on going forward.” Genz said one of the options is expanding The Warrior’s existing website,, to support the capabilities of a strictly online publication. Once the board decides on The Warrior’s new direction, Genz said they will begin recruiting a new staff but will preserve the newspaper’s founding values. “I don’t think from a content side we’re looking to change,” Genz said. “We want to uphold the free market ideas – the main message is that we won’t change.” In 2004, The Warrior became the campus’s only alternative newspaper, named after the infamous mascot debate resurfaced and motivated its founders, according to The Warrior’s website. The university had struggled with a student body and alumni majority who were in favor of “Warriors” and opposed the newly instated nickname “The Gold.” Despite public sentiment, Marquette aired on the side of political correctness and defaulted to the replacement that had first been selected in 1993 – “Golden Eagles.” A handful of disgruntled stu-

dents noticed the disconnect between the administration and its patrons and decided to create a forum for students to express and distribute their ideas outside of university influence. Diana Rickert, an ‘08 alumnus, was one of those five malcontent students that ended up founding The Warrior. “At the time, what really lacked on campus was true intellectual diversity and tolerance,” Rickert said. “The students who founded The Warrior sought to provide a marketplace of ideas for the student body – a safe place where under-represented perspectives were welcome.” Rickert helped launch the first issue in November 2005 along with a modest 15-person staff that grew to 45 by the spring of 2006. Under Rickert’s tenure as editor-in-chief from 2005 to 2007, The Warrior won five Milwaukee Press Club awards. “The Warrior operated with 100 percent autonomy, and gave staffers in every position an incredibly rich experience,” Rickert said. “After the papers were published, we even hand-distributed the issues to our readership and hand-delivered to advertisers. There were a lot of cold days when we stood out on Wisconsin Ave. distributing issues, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.” Since The Warrior operates outside of university sanctions as a 501c3 non-profit organization, it could not deliver newspapers to campus newspaper stands or other buildings. Although hand delivery will no longer be necessary with-

out print operations, The Warrior will still need to rely on a volunteer staff and funding through donations and advertising revenue. “The guiding principle is to promote free market, capitalistic ideas and a strong Catholic base,” Genz said. “From the news side, we try to keep that out, and on the opinion side, we keep it as open as possible.” Zach Geren, a senior and journalism major in the College of Communication, said he has heard of The Warrior, but never saw hard copies available. “It’s a paper not sponsored by Marquette, so I would’ve enjoyed seeing a different view on events or topics,” Geren said. “There isn’t enough publicity for it.” The Warrior typically published about 5,000 16-page color issues for distribution, according to its website, which was circulated approximately once a month. But with changing industry standards, the print vehicle may no longer best serve The Warrior’s mission. “It has been seven years since The Warrior was founded, and a lot has changed in that time,” Rickert said. “The journalism industry in particular has undergone some changes, and ... a print publication is not always the most effective way to reach people. So is it important for The Warrior to continue to publish? I would say it’s important for The Warrior’s mission to continue, whether that be through a print publication or any other means.”

Job growth in Wisconsin ranked 38th in nation State adds 37,500 private sector jobs within the last year By Emily Fischer

Wisconsin added 37,500 jobs between March 2011 and 2012, according to the latest quarterly report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Wisconsin’s 1.7 percent growth in the private sector ranks it 38th in the nation. Michigan had an increase of 3.4 percent, Minnesota saw an increase of 2.5 percent and Illinois had an increase of 1.9 percent, while the nation as a whole had an increase of 2.4 percent. “This increase in job growth is not enough to achieve Gov. Scott Walker’s promise to create 250,00 jobs by 2015,” said Abdur Chowdhury, a Marquette professor and chair of economics.

According to the report, from March 2011 to 2012 Wisconsin lost 9,364 government jobs. However, at the same time, the state added 12,138 manufacturing jobs and 7,459 jobs in the professional and business sector. “The state government has emphasized job creation in the manufacturing sector,” Chowdhury said. “However, the performance of this sector in creating jobs has not been encouraging. The state government needs to concentrate its efforts in other areas, such as education and health (care), where we have seen promise.” Nationwide, the unemployment rate dropped from 8.1 to 7.8 percent, marking the first time the rate has dropped below eight percent since January 2009. North Dakota led the nation in percentage of jobs gained with 11.21 percent, an increase of 33,155 jobs, with Utah and Texas coming in second and

third with gains of 3.77 and 3.7 percent, respectively. Delaware had the least amount of growth in the nation with a job gain of 0.88 percent. Sarah Graupman, a freshman in the College of Arts & Sciences, had mixed reactions to Wisconsin’s jobs ranking. “I feel positively about that number, but you don’t want to be ranked 38th in growth,” Graupman said. Chowdhury said that Marquette students should be following job data to see where career opportunities might lie for them in the future. “Marquette students who would be graduating in the near future need to closely follow the job market and see in which areas there are demands,” Chowdhury said. Courtney Hanson, the associate director of Marquette’s Career Services Center, said students seeking employment should stay connected. “In order for any student to be successful in his or her job search, he or she should be focused and connected,” Hanson said. “Students need to avoid the ‘I’ll take anything’ approach to the job search. Employers want to hire candidates who have had gained transferable skills through volunteering,

participation in student organizations, part-time jobs and internships and can speak clearly

about the skills and knowledge they will use to contribute to company goals.”

MPD chief asked to resign by citizens Flynn in hot seat over murder case, refuses to give up position By Monique Collins

New evidence in the Derek Williams murder case has led neighborhood organizers to request Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn’s resignation. Flynn rejected the activists’ demands, saying “I’m not going anywhere,” according to an Oct. 3 article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. In 2011, Williams was arrested on suspicion of robbery. A video from inside the MPD squad car where he was placed shows Williams gasping for air and begging for help while officers Jeffrey Cline – who said, “You’re breathing just fine” – and Gregory Kuspa did nothing. The case has prompted outrage from members of the Milwaukee community who say Williams’ death was caused by negligence on the part of the officers. The Milwaukee County Examiner changed Williams’ cause of death from natural causes to homicide due to the fact that others were involved in the situation, according to an article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. This change has led to a reopening of the case by Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chrisholm. On Sept. 27, close to 400 Milwaukee residents gathered at the Milwaukee Brotherhood of Firefighters Hall to watch the video of Williams and to demand that Flynn resign.

Another protest was held on Oct. 3, when more than 100 protesters also demanded that Flynn resign and that the officers involved be held responsible. Several faith and community organizations, focusing on bringing justice for Williams, met with Flynn on Oct. 3 with a list of demands. Among these is Peace Action Wisconsin, a peace and justice organization which “works for a world where human needs are met, the environment is preserved, and the threats of war and nuclear weapons have been abolished,” according to the organization’s website. The coalition demanded more information on the Williams case, specifically when dashboard camera footage was viewed for the first time and the release of police radio communications from the night of Williams’ death, as well as the badges of the officers involved and the resignation of Flynn. According to Mike Helbick, program director of Peace Action Wisconsin, a coalition of faith and community organizations is built in order to improving police-community relations and all of the work that this effort entails. “A call for Chief Flynn’s resignation … is merely one demand that Milwaukee’s community is making at this point,” Helbick said. The NAACP Milwaukee Branch voiced its doubt in the credibility of the officials responsible in a statement. “A credible investigation must occur in a manner to provide justice for Derek Williams and to hold accountable those responsible for his death,” the statement said.

New city ordinances tighten park policies, security

Cities across country ticketing homeless for a variety of offenses By Gillian Flaccus Associated Press

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Army veteran Don Matyja was getting by alright on the streets of this city tucked in Southern California suburbia until he got ticketed for smoking in the park. Matyja, who has been homeless since he was evicted nearly two years ago, had trouble paying the fine and getting to court — and now a $25 penalty has ballooned to $600. The ticket is just one of myriad new challenges facing Matyja and others living on the streets in Orange County, where a number of cities have recently passed ordinances that ban everything from smoking in the park to sleeping in cars to leaning bikes against trees in a region better known for its beaches than its 30,000 homeless people. Cities have long struggled with how to deal with the homeless, but the new ordinances here echo what homeless advocates say is a rash of regulations nationwide as municipalities grapple with how to address those living on their streets within the constraints of evertightening budgets. The rules may go unnoticed by most, but the homeless say they are a thinly veiled attempt to push them out of one city and into another by criminalizing the daily activities they cannot avoid. There’s been a sharp uptick in the past year in the number of cities passing ordinances against doing things on public property such as sitting, lying down, sleeping, standing in a public street, loitering, public urination, jaywalking and panhandling, said Neil Donovan, the executive director of the National Coalition for the Homeless. “It definitely is more pervasive and it is more adversarial. I think in the past we found examples of it but it’s not simply just growing, but it’s growing in its severity and in its targeted approach to America’s un-housed,” said Donovan, who compared it to a civil rights issue. “There’s the whole notion of driving while black. Well, this is sitting while homeless.” Denver earlier this year voted

to make urban camping illegal despite protests from homeless activists. Philadelphia banned feedings in public parks in June but the ordinance was put on hold the following month after homeless groups sued the city. And there’s a new curfew for pets that help their owners beg on the Las Vegas Strip. Matyja, in Costa Mesa, has gotten multiple tickets for smoking in the park where he camps out since the law took effect earlier this year. “When I was in the military, I’m golden. When I was working, I was golden. When I’m not working and I’m out here, I’m a piece of garbage as far as these people are concerned,” said Matyja, 50, as he walked past a row of neatly manicured lawns on a sweltering day. “They figure if they don’t see you, then the problem don’t exist and then they can say, ‘We don’t have a homeless problem.’” The Newport Beach Public Library, nestled in a coastal city better known for its surfing and miles of wide beaches, recently updated a policy that says staff can evict someone for having poor hygiene or a strong aroma. The policy also bans lounging on library furniture and creates strict limits about parking shopping carts, bikes and “other wheeled conveyances” outside the premises. Library Services Director Cynthia Cowell insists the policy isn’t aimed at the homeless, but the action has nonetheless stirred anger among homeless advocates. “They become very clever about it and try to blanket it because they say “strong aroma” could be perfume also, but in the end it’s an attempt to keep people out of where the neighborhood and community folks feel uncomfortable,” said Scott Mather, director of Haven, a program for Orange County’s chronically homeless. Some cities have seen a legal backlash as homeless advocacy groups sue. Last week, the homeless in Sacramento got checks ranging from $400 to $750 apiece to settle a classaction lawsuit brought after police destroyed property seized during cleanup operations. In a similar case, a federal appeals court ruled last month that the city of Los Angeles cannot seize property left temporarily unattended on sidewalks by homeless residents.

For cities struggling with large homeless populations, the solution involves walking a tightrope between complaints from the voting public and the possibility of a lawsuit. In Costa Mesa, a city of about 110,000 tucked between south Orange County’s famous beaches and the tourist mecca of Disneyland, officials have been trying to figure out what to do about a homeless population of about 1,200 people, including up to 120 chronically homeless with severe mental illness or substance abuse issues. Residents routinely complain about the homeless in Lions Park, a large green space in the city’s downtown that is home to the library, a recreation center and a community swimming pool. The city has received calls about people masturbating and urinating outside the library’s windows, taking baths in the park’s fountain and leering at children who attend classes at the rec center, said Rick Francis, the city’s assistant chief executive officer. On a recent day, dozens of homeless individuals lounged in the park on blankets or sat near bikes piled high with plastic bags, bedrolls, sleeping bags and, in one instance, a full-sized suitcase that dangled from the handlebars. A man who appeared to be intoxicated panhandled outside the library, asking passersby for cigarettes. Another man listening to a portable radio said he’d been released from prison

earlier in the week and had nowhere else to go. “We get a lot of complaints from residents who feel like, ‘Hey, here’s a municipal resource that we’re fearful to even use because we don’t want our kids playing in a park where they have to step over homeless people and all their possessions,’” Francis said. “Look, we’re not asking all you guys to leave but we want to be able to come to the park and enjoy it without the blight of stacks and stacks and stacks of property laying around, without the issues of human waste being scattered about, those types of things.” Costa Mesa formed a homeless task force last spring and came up with a “carrot and stick approach,” said Muriel Ullman, the city’s housing consultant. The city hopes to build more affordable housing using federal grant money and county resources and has hired a mental health worker to connect with the chronically homeless. It has also partnered with local churches to set up a storage facility where the homeless can keep their belongings to avoid having them confiscated, Ullman said. But Costa Mesa has also passed a slate of new ordinances, including bans on parking a bike anywhere but on a city bike rack, smoking in the park and sleeping in the park after dark, she said. The city also spent $60,000 to tear down a gazebo that attracted large

numbers of homeless people, asked churches to stop soup kitchens there and hired two rangers to patrol the park. The mayor last week stoked anger by calling soup kitchens nuisances and asking the city to investigate some decades-old charities there. Critics say that Costa Mesa is “just trying to get rid of our homeless, but what we’re trying to do is help those who want help and if somebody doesn’t want help — and they have refused help on numerous occasions — we want the courts to deal with them,” Ullman said. Homeless advocates who have watched the ordinances roll out in Costa Mesa and other, neighboring, cities aren’t so sure. The high cost of living in Orange County, coupled with a severe shortage of affordable housing and lack of shelter space, make it impossible for many homeless people to get back on their feet, said Bob Murphy, general manager of the local nonprofit American Family Housing. Most wind up migrating from city to city to avoid trouble, he said. In Costa Mesa, a recent city report found a shortage of more than 1,000 transitional shelter beds for the city’s population alone. “These are people. It’s not like you can go out with a dog catcher and scoop them up and put them somewhere else,” Murphy said. “They have no place to go.”

Midnight Run goes the distance to feed the hungry Student organization boasts 160 volunteers, 100 more waiting By Elise Angelopulos

The motto, “No running required – just walking with your neighbor,” may seem like a fitting mantra for a charity walk, but it’s actually the group Midnight Run Marquette’s philosophy for aiding the hungry across Milwaukee. Gerry Fischer, the Campus Ministry administrator for Midnight Run Marquette, said there are 160 Marquette volunteers, 11 service sites in Milwaukee and more than 100 individuals on the volunteer waiting list to provide meals for the homeless and hungry of the city. The program began on campus in 1988. “Generally we get a lot of interest from first year students, but Midnight Run volunteers tend to be very loyal,” Fischer said. “We have regular volunteers who have been involved consistently since their first year on campus.” Fischer said the volunteer program is a bridge between the Marquette and Milwaukee communities. “It breaks down stereotypes and provides opportunities for students to make connections with people they would never meet otherwise,” Fischer said. Lisa Cathelyn, a senior in the College of Arts & Sciences and co-coordinator of Midnight Run, said specific volunteer sites include St. Ben’s Community Meal Program on State Street, The Guest House (a men’s shelter), St. Vincent de Paul and Casa Maria Catholic Worker House. Contrary to the name, Cathelyn said that students don’t

Midnight Run started at Marquette in 1988 serving food out of a van. Today, the group dishes out meals at 11 different service sites in Milwaukee.

necessarily need to volunteer at night, though in the early days of the program, Marquette students did provide late dinner meals out of a single van. Since then, the program has greatly expanded and sends volunteers to sites every day of the week who distribute breakfast and dinner meals, Cathelyn said. Jena Wallander, a junior in the College of Nursing and Midnight Run site coordinator, said she enjoys volunteering with Midnight Run because it is an almost entirely student-run organization. “We each recognize that it’s

okay to struggle with what we encounter every day on campus or at our sites,” Wallander said. “We want to be advocates for our community and for those who don’t always have a voice here.” Wallander added that Midnight Run continuously strives to have a strong campus presence by raising awareness regarding the realities of hunger and homelessness. Under the umbrella organization of Midnight Run, Noon Run is also a Marquette meal program and sister organization. Noon Run serves lunches

six days each week and, after many relocations, has found a base at the Redeemer Lutheran Church at 631 N. 19th St. Cathelyn thinks Noon Run serves the community well at the church because it is an enclosed shelter. Marquette students meet at Cobeen to prepare three weekly meals the organization provides, while Redeemer picks up the other three meals, Cathelyn said. “It is essentially a studentrun meal program in that we pack the sandwiches, transport the food, serve it, interact and mingle with the guests, form those relationships and are

responsible for clean-up,” Cathelyn said. Cathelyn said in the past, 40 sandwiches were sufficient for a lunch meal for those in the community, but now Noon Run makes around 150 sandwiches each Sunday as word has spread. “Knowing that there is a greater need is tough – it’s important that we are able to provide for a meal, but it’s gutwrenching to be keenly aware that those who need a meal are women and men who live in the neighborhoods surrounding Marquette,” Cathelyn said.

DPS officer: Diaz works night shifts, assumes desk responsibilities that year, Diaz left Puerto Rico for Milwaukee. From there, she was a participant in Marquette’s Upward Bound program, which helps low-income students prepare for college by attending tutoring sessions during the winter and pre-college courses during the summer. “It keeps you motivated to have good grades,” Diaz said. “There are just great people.” Diaz’s mother, who is deaf and mute, followed her to Milwaukee when she left Puerto Rico and still lives in the area. Her father was murdered in Puerto Rico when Diaz was 17. Despite these challenges, Diaz has always wanted to be in law enforcement. She said she feels at home in her position at Marquette. “Come January, it will be eight years that I have been here,” Diaz said. “Marquette is where I want to stay.” Diaz,who will celebrate her 34th birthday Oct. 24, also has two children. She hopes for her 12-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter to attend Marquette once they graduate from high school. Diaz was an SSO from 2005 until 2010. She then became a public safety officer patroling

the streets of campus, which she described as something close to typical law enforcement. She is now back to being an SSO. Diaz also occasionally works as the early morning shuttle for students who need to be picked up from residences or libraries from 3 a.m. to 7 p.m. Since Diaz works nights, she spends most of her days asleep. She usually sleeps in four-hour increments and gets a total of around eight hours of sleep a day. “It is a difficult life,” Diaz said. “I have dark curtains in my room to make it seem like it is nighttime. I have two alarm clocks, just in case one doesn’t go off.” On a typical evening, Diaz and her partner officer attend role call at 11:15 p.m. At this meeting, all the SSO officers meet at DPS headquarters, located in the 16th Street Parking Structure at 749 N. 16th St., and listen to reports or concerns with their supervisor. They are then given time to check the residence hall where they work before starting their shifts behind the desk. They search for unsecured doors or broken property, then assume desk

responsibilities at midnight. All of the residence halls only require one SSO officer working, except for

Schroeder and McCormick. Mark Thurman, who is a new SSO, spends Sunday and Monday nights working with Diaz at the

McCormick Hall front desk. “I am learning from her,” Thurman said. “She is a very good teacher.”

Actress speaks for Relatives of Ryan, Obama on campus Romney campaign Munn advocates for women’s issues and calls for re-election By Alexandra Whittaker

Actress Olivia Munn is best known recently for her portrayal of awkward financial reporter Sloan Sabbith on HBO’s “The Newsroom,” but she took on another role Saturday as a speaker for the Obama campaign. Munn spoke to Marquette students about women’s issues in the election and why she thought President Obama should be reelected. The event, part of the Obama campaign’s “Young Americans for Obama” movement, drew roughly 15 supporters to the Alumni Memorial Union. Actress Ashley Judd was scheduled to speak alongside Munn, but a flight delay prevented her from joining the former “Attack of the Show” co-host. Despite the setback and the small amount of time given to prepare, Margaret Grace, a junior in the College of Arts & Sciences and a deputy team leader for Marquette’s Students for Barack Obama, was pleased with the event. “Olivia was a very fun speaker,” Grace said. “She had a lot of important stuff to say, but it was also fun to hear about her experiences. I was really glad about the turnout.” Munn was a lively speaker, raising both laughs and shouts of approval from the audience, but she also made a point to outline the main reason why she supports Obama, namely the Supreme Court. Munn believes Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader

Ginsburg will most likely retire within the next four years, which would mean the next president would be able to appoint a new justice. Munn said presidential candidate Mitt Romney has already promised to appoint a justice who would help overturn Roe vs. Wade, the controversial 1973 court case legalizing abortion. The current Supreme Court is narrowly in favor of the decision, 5-4, according to most estimations, but without Ginsburg, the Court would be evenly split at 4-4. “If (Romney) is elected, he will get someone in there to overturn Roe vs. Wade, which means that abortion will be illegal, even in (cases of) incest and rape,” Munn said. “That means if Mitt Romney is elected, he is going to successfully turn the clock backwards 50 years on women’s rights and say that we aren’t allowed to make choices on our own bodies. Every day on the campaign, President Obama is saying we’ve got to move forward, we can’t go backwards, and Mitt Romney is actually saying oh no, let’s go backwards, oh, and also, women, stay in the kitchen. Be pretty and don’t wear pants.” While Munn’s speech certainly sparked cheers of approval from the audience, others on campus were more skeptical. “That just isn’t factual,” said Gregory Peters, a Republican and Marquette graduate who heard about Munn’s speech but was not in attendance. “She simply doesn’t know what she’s talking about, which isn’t really surprising. She is an actress, not a politician, and her speech really made that clear. I would have thought that she would be smart enough to check her facts before spewing nonsense at students.”

Brother, eldest son talked about media bias to MU students By Joe Kaiser

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s oldest son, Tagg Romney, and vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s older brother, Tobin Ryan, spoke to about 20 Marquette students at Miss Katie’s Diner, located at 1900 W. Clybourn St., Friday to talk to supporters about the election and the Republican candidates on a personal level. Romney, 42, began the discussion by speaking of his frustration with the media bias he feels has tainted the view of his father as a candidate. “One of the things that is the most frustrating for me is the media filter and just how skewed they paint the race,” Romney said. “Barack Obama is out there saying now ‘the person on the stage [at Wednesday’s first presidential debate] is not the real Mitt Romney we know,’ and I laugh and say ‘yeah, because the Mitt Romney that you’ve been painting is not the real Mitt Romney.’ It was great to have people actually hear that unfiltered [at the debate] and hear who he was.” Romney told a story about one of his father’s business partners whose daughter was kidnapped in New York City. He said his father and the rest of his partners left the office for New York, refusing to return until his daughter was found. They put out fliers, a hotline number and a $50,000 reward. With these efforts, Romney said, the girl was eventually recovered. “The reason I tell that story is

my dad gets things done,” Romney said. “He solves problems.” Tobin Ryan reiterated the points about Mitt Romney’s character. “Life isn’t about their glory, it’s about making a difference in people’s lives and that’s who Mitt Romney is,” Ryan said. “It’s just a pleasure to be a part of (a ticket with) sincere, genuine people like the Romneys.” Ryan also talked about his brother on a personal level, mentioning the loss of their father while both he and Paul were young, and Paul’s college experiences campaigning for John Boehner in Ohio. Andy Vogt, a junior in the College of Arts & Sciences, said having the candidate’s relatives talk about personal experiences shows us more than just what is in the media. “The message is basically the same (as the candidates), and I think they’re able to talk about the candidates in a way that most of us have never heard before, especially when you hear the story about Mitt going out to New York,” Vogt said. “That’s something I never heard. I was really impressed.” Sam Zager, junior in the College of Arts & Sciences and co-chair of the Coalition of Young Americans for Mitt Romney agreed, adding that personal accounts about Romney “show something other than his political and business side.” Zager also said enthusiasm for the GOP ticket has “skyrocketed” since the debate and that Wisconsin may be more up for grabs than people think. “I think Wisconsin is an interesting case because we had a recall,” Zager said. “But I think the fact that Obama has come here twice in two weeks shows that the race is a lot closer than people think.”

Department of Public Safety vehicles patrol campus in order to ensure student protection.

Did you notice the article about Department of Public Safety’s Evelyn Diaz on the front page? We hope so. We also hope that you will open up the paper to continue reading profiles of DPS officers each Tuesday in the coming weeks, which are part of our new series to introduce students to the women and men behind the uniforms. This is because it’s not only nice to put a name to a face, but it is also important to get to know who is protecting you on campus. To be clear, we don’t recommend becoming familiar with DPS because we think it will help you get out of trouble. Rather, you should socialize with these officers because establishing a relationship is essential in building trust and respect. This trust includes believing the officers have your well-being at heart. They are doing their jobs because they have a genuine care and compassion for the Marquette community, not just because it helps them pay the bills. We juniors and seniors at the Tribune have especially fond memories of our first years at Marquette because we knew DPS had our backs around campus. Friday and Saturday nights, we would count on safety officers to make sure we didn’t get mugged or have unwanted visitors stopping by off-campus get-togethers. But in looking at this year’s freshmen class, we are not sure if they have this same sort of understanding and appreciation for DPS. This shift in perspective could be attributed to the change in alcohol policy, which has possibly resulted in more fear and less trust between students and officers, but that policy change alone should not take away from the gratitude this university’s safety staff deserves from students. It is much easier to appreciate DPS as people if you get to know these officers as people, not just as the “bad guys” who could potentially write you up for a policy violation. We’ve seen some very positive changes in the Department of Public Safety

during the last few years. Last fall, when the campus was hit with a stream of muggings, DPS stepped up its presence and could be seen patrolling anywhere and everywhere in the area. Perhaps the most significant change is the use of the new safety alerts. Not only are students now alerted via text message when a crime occurs around campus, they are also emailed an in-depth description of the suspects. We believe this new system is much more effective than previous years’ non-descriptive emails that could have been copied, pasted and sent out from one alert to the next. And in reality, DPS officers do much more than issue safety alerts and drive around monitoring campus. They may drive you home when the wait for a LIMO seems endless or after an especially late night in the library. They may help you when you are sick and make sure you get home safely. They may even spend hours digging through dumpsters when your purse or wallet gets stolen before attending to the mounds of paperwork these incidents require. Some people may laugh at the DPS reports published in each edition of the Tribune, and sometimes, student activity detailed in these reports is indeed entertaining. Student safety, however, is nothing to joke about. We think you would (or at least should) prefer to know someone is looking out for your safety when your judgment might be lacking rather than wandering around alone without any form of surveillance to protect you. The bottom line is this: DPS is your friend. Start treating them like it. Don’t make fake Twitter accounts mocking them, and don’t harass them when you’ve had too much to drink. And the next time you’re getting swiped into your residence hall at 3 a.m. or you pass an officer on the sidewalk, make sure you say thank you. These men and women deserve much more than new patrol vehicles and a big set of key rings.


In just under one month, many Americans will head to the polls to decide who will be the next president of our country. It’s kind of a big deal. So big, in fact, that I think it requires voters to take a little extra time to consider their decision before they fill in the bubbles on a ballot (or punch holes or tap a screen … however your state rolls). There are many important issues in this election that both candidates have strong stances on. None of them are arbitrary, random ideas someone decided to believe. The candidates probably sat down with members of their parties and campaign staff to decide the best way to handle them by taking many things into consideration. Both Gov. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama have taken the time to research the issues and what is important to the American people to decide their platforms. Voters owe it to the candidates to do the same when it comes to deciding how to vote. There are people out there who consistently vote for one party or the other simply because of their stance on a single issue or a few of the current hot topics in America. I believe this kind of voting does the United States a great disservice. An elected official’s job is not just to work with one or two specific issues, but to handle a myriad of problems and policies to make sure the American people are being served by their government in the best possible way. Before you vote, I think you have a responsibility to your country and fellow citizens to do your research. You may wholeheartedly agree with a particular

candidate on one issue, but when you look closer, some of their other policies may seem questionable. You are not voting on a specific bill – you are voting for the highest office in our land. Remember that. Examine the campaign websites of each candidate and do even further research. Read newspaper articles from multiple sources about candidates and listen to your friends’ and family members’ opinions. What’s amazing about the United States today is that we have the freedom to engage in political discourse in many different ways — in print, online and in person. Take advantage of that when you are making your decision for whom to vote. And do not forget about local issues. Yes, Nov. 6 is the date of the presidential election, but many local offices and issues will also be on your ballot. No matter which state you vote in, don’t forget about them. Blur party lines and vote for the people you most agree with to serve you and your fellow citizens, not just every candidate from a particular party simply because they are part of that party. There are also many people who say neither Romney nor Obama is fit to be the president. These people are completely entitled to that opinion, but it’s pretty much a guarantee that, come November, one or the other will be voted into office. Some people may wish to withhold their vote because they do not think either should be elected, and some people may have completely legitimate reasons to do so. However, if these people were to really examine each candidate, they may find that one seems more qualified than the other to run our country. It would make much more sense to cast a vote for that individual in order to take a step toward electing the most able president. I highly encourage all of you who are 18 or older to first make sure you are registered to vote and second, to take some time to do a little research about what and whom you will be voting for in four weeks. You already have a newspaper in your hands or a news website open. You might as well spend a little more time reading today.

Your everyday college superheroes

Tony Manno Superman flies faster than a speeding bullet; The Hulk hones super strength; Batman’s tool belt has all the necessary gadgets. When I was growing up, I filled some of those boring time voids thinking about what superpowers I would take on if I could choose. Would it be time travel

to get out of church? Flying to impress kids at recess? X-Ray vision, strictly for scientific purposes? The big name heroes have all the best powers. But we have to keep in mind the lesser heroes whose powers only come in handy once in a while. Honestly, Aquaman, I need to know when to watch Shark Week. If I could create some heroes in my college years, they would have some pretty average powers to help me through the week. Here are a few: Stovetop: Boils water instantly, so I don’t have to wait six minutes to cook some pasta. Stovetop draws some attention on the street, though, as he is basically a walking oven. His disguise doesn’t help much. Maybe he can heat our house so I don’t have to wear

gloves inside anymore. Beer Run Bob: Self explanatory – he’s really just a guy named Bob who goes on beer runs. He wears a mask for good measure. One-liner Woman: Whether at the office water cooler or hanging out with friends, One-liner Woman swoops in to provide that perfect zinger when it’s on the tip of your tongue. Her canine sidekick, Pun Pooch, comes in for backup. Clone Man: My schedule’s been pretty busy the past couple weeks, so it would be nice to send a clone to complete some of the less desirable tasks, like job interviews and phone surveys. Not to be confused with Cologne Man, who only reveals himself at sweaty bars on weekends.

Politifacto: Politifacto can pop up on cable news at a moment’s notice to bombard you with fact checks. A villain to opposing cable news stations, but on the upside, he also brings guacamole to the debates. This hero’s been pretty busy. The Snowplow: Much better than Shovel Boy. Pizza Man: Hold on … I’m getting word that Pizza Man already exists, and he drives a ’94 Civic. I believe he also takes coupons. That means he needs a sidekick, Rooster. Rooster can produce bottles of Sriracha hot sauce on command, adding all that spicy goodness at the snap of his feathers. I have a feeling I’d be spending a lot of time with these guys.

Don’t sever the parental tie during college I’ve been away from home for a little more than a month now, and within that time span, I’ve come to learn a lot about myself. Most importantly, I learned that I most certainly do not know everything. I have to admit, I never did my own laundry before college, and I know I’m not the only one. The first night I attempted to clean my clothes myself, I had no idea if a white shirt with a little bit of color on it should be washed with the colors or the whites. All I could do was stare at it and hope that it would tell me where it belonged. Then there was the time I tried to print out my English assignment and my printer wouldn’t work. I don’t know how many times I read through the manual only to have my sassy printer reject the paper. What about the time I left my key in

Friends: more than a shoulder to cry on By Brooke Goodman

One of the great things about being a columnist for the Marquette Tribune is that I can pretty much write about whatever I want. For example, about two hours ago I fully intended to use this blog to praise the iPhone app Snapchat for how it has made selfies completely acceptable within society. The other great thing about being a columnist is that I can switch topics at the last minute based on experiences I have had throughout the day prior to deadline. Although Snapchat would have been ohso-fun to dedicate 18 inches to, I’ve had a change of heart. I’d like to pay tribute to something a bit more meaningful.

my room and had to explain myself to the people at the front desk in my monkey slippers? That was fun. Needless to say, I do not hold all the answers, and without the help from my parents (and cell phones), who knows if my shirt would have been ruined, if my printer would ever work or if I would be locked out of my room for hours? Although I — along with fellow Marquette students — have grown up, you are clearly never too old to receive support from your parents. Just the other week I had my first college exam, and as the days came closer to my test, my anxiety rose tremendously. However, when I woke up the morning of the big day, I saw a text my mom sent saying, “Good luck today! Relax and believe in yourself!” Her text released some of the

butterflies I had inside and helped me conquer my exam. There is no time limit when it comes to asking your parents for advice or receiving their support. It is not like after 18 years we suddenly are expired cargo and get thrown out like old milk. Of course, the connection between parents and children can be a lovehate relationship at times. Not all relationships are perfect. I certainly know my relationship with my parents isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. But where would you be without the love and support from your parents, or guardians for that matter? Our parents and loved ones push us to be great because they can see our potential, even when we can’t. I think college-aged students need to remember that they’re not the only

ones adjusting to living on their own. Their parents are also adjusting to the absence of a child. I hope that after Parents’ Weekend, students realize how much their parents care about them. Remember that your parents are on your side and they deserve thanks for everything they have done and will continue to do for you. Sure, we don’t always see things eyeto-eye and most likely got a lecture on keeping our rooms clean all weekend, but in the end, parents and guardians do these things for us because they love us. So the next time you pick up your phone, think about calling your parents, whether it’s just to talk or ask how to do laundry. Hannah Byron, Freshman, College of Communication

MU stuns No. 2 Connecticut at Valley Fields

Redshirt junior forward Adam Lysak scored a goal and picked up an assist in Marquette’s shocking 3-2 victory.

Lysak, Hufatlin all the offense Golden Eagles need in 3-2 upset win By Matt Trebby

Andy Hufatlin and Adam Lysak are both in their fourth years as players for head coach

Louis Bennett’s Marquette team. They were members of the 2009 team that won three games the whole season. Off the bench, Huftalin scored two goals and Lysak had a goal and an assist on Saturday night, fueling Marquette’s 3-2 win against then-No. 2 Connecticut at Valley Fields. The Huskies were the highest ranked team Marquette has ever beaten, and the victory was a bit of redemption for the

hosts. Connecticut beat the Golden Eagles 3-0 last season in Storrs, in a game in which Marquette could have clinched the Big East Blue Division with a victory. The 11-0-0 Golden Eagles are now ranked No. 3 in the country by College Soccer News, and No. 4 by “The mentality here has changed,” Lysak said. “We see our full potential, and I don’t know if we even see that yet. We can see

what we can become, and that’s what we’re striving for every day.” Lysak, a redshirt junior midfielder, opened the scoring in the 32nd minute on Saturday night. Sophomore winger Sebastian Jansson crossed a ball into the box from the left wing, which sophomore Kelmend Islami controlled, and rolled onto Lysak’s right foot 18 yards from goal. Bennett said Lysak’s performance was “one of the best of the year,” and also lauded his senior forward, Huftalin, who was named to College Soccer News’ national team of the week. Huftalin’s first goal came eight minutes after Lysak’s opener, when freshman right back Adam Hermsen forced a turnover on Connecticut’s left wing, gained possession and crossed to the near post where Huftalin slid to put the ball into the far post. “My role is to work my butt off and get in the front post and score goals,” Huftalin said. “That is my job description.” Jossimer Sanchez scored in the 71st minute for Connecticut to make the score 2-1, but in the process broke his leg after a colliding with Marquette redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Charlie Lyon. Sanchez was taken off in an ambulance after about 10 minutes of treatment on the field. “The lads got everyone together, and by the time I got everyone together, I told them the referee is going to blow the whistle and the game is going to begin,” Bennett said. “We play a competitive sport, and unfortunately accidents happen and sometimes bad things can

happen through injury.” Lyon visited Sanchez in the hospital on Sunday, where Sanchez has undergone two surgeries and will return to Connecticut on Tuesday. Huftalin struck again in the 82nd. Lysak created space on the right wing, and his low cross was met by Huftalin at the near post, yet again, where he slotted it in the far post to make the score 3-1. “At halftime,” Lysak said, “Hufty told me to just play the near post, he’ll get there, and to make sure that I find him.” “I’m so happy for them,” Bennett said of Lysak and Huftalin. “Anyone that’s willing to put in that much effort, and that much determination, and be that loyal, and put themselves in a situation to be successful, whether they start or come off the bench, that’s part of our culture we’ve tried to develop.” Connecticut midfielder Adria Beso scored with 40 seconds left in the game to make the score 3-2, but Marquette held the Huskies off to secure the victory. “We were pretty psyched about this game, and we came out firing,” Huftalin said. “We really put it to them, and this just goes to show how talented a team we are and what we can do to the team around us.” Marquette doesn’t have too much time to be content with the victory, though. The team hosts the Huskies of Northern Illinois on Tuesday night at Valley Fields, in what will be its last non-conference game of the season.



Bailey’s bunch breaks through Three Big East titles Nelson leads stellar on the radar this fall first place finish in John Dallio Memorial

By Trey Killian

It’s been a tough few years for the Marquette golf team. Before Sunday, the program had not won a tournament since the 2008 Big East Championship. Under third-year coach Steve Bailey, the Golden Eagles had finished anywhere from last place to the middle of the pack of most tournament fields they’ve competed in. After each performance, Bailey would often stress the importance of getting a consistent top-to-bottom finish from his lineup. Last weekend, using his third different rotation of the fall season, he finally got it. With a team score of 905, Marquette achieved that elusive first-place finish in the John Dallio Memorial, beating out runner-up and host DePaul by five strokes.

“It’s nice to have our hard work pay off,” Bailey said. “We had a mission this week to just believe we could accomplish this and to be tough. We knew the conditions would be cold and windy, but we wanted to push through them.” Freshman Nick Nelson led the Golden Eagles with an overall score of 225, placing him in a tie for fifth place in the field of 80 golfers. Nelson started the weekend struggling through the first round with a 79, but he finished strong with a 74 in the second and an even-par 72 in the third to finish nine over par. “I just stuck to the game plan,” Nelson said. “It wasn’t anything special, just solid golf. There were a few times today in the last round where I made a few birdies and got some good momentum going. It’s just kind of a confidence thing sometimes.” Bailey said he was excited to have one of his younger guys lead the pack during such an exciting weekend and that his effort was very impressive for a freshman. The team’s performance on par 3s and its overall fighting

This week I felt I hit the ball much better, but the team really played much better as a pack. I expect more from us the rest of the season.” Corey Konieczki, junior golfer

spirit stuck out to Bailey as big difference makers. “(The par 3s) had a lot of water and had some length to them, but today we finished all three of them at 3 over par,” Bailey said. “They were the most difficult part of this course. Our guys knew they were close to the top after day one, and they fought hard to the end and never gave in.” Marquette sported just a seven-stroke differential between its top and bottom finishers with freshman Zach Gaugert rounding out the scoring with a 232, good for a tie for 29th place individually. Junior Corey Konieczki was the second best finisher for the Golden Eagles with a solid 227 and tie for 12th place. Konieczki has been a part of the team for all three of Bailey’s years as coach, and said the win set a new standard for Marquette. “It feels great just to win and be on top of the field for once,” Konieczki said. “This week I felt I hit the ball much better, but the team really played much better as a pack. I expect more from us the rest of the season.” Senior Ryan Prickette, who will graduate this December, finished third for the Golden Eagles, and was more than happy to be a part of the long-awaited victory. See Top-to-bottom, page 13

Michael LoCicero I decided to brave the elements Saturday night and went to Valley Fields to watch the unbeaten Marquette men’s soccer team take on No. 2 Connecticut in what was the biggest match in program history. Following the Golden Eagles’ incredible 3-2 win, I’m confident in saying this: Marquette will have three Big East champions this fall. Both soccer teams as well as volleyball will win regular season Big East titles, some for the first time ever, and here’s how it will be done. Women’s Soccer Everybody knows about the success of the women’s soccer program. The Golden Eagles are searching for their fourth straight division title and are three points up on Syracuse with three matches to play. They are 10-2-2 this year and have not lost a match since a 5-2 setback against Duke on Sept. 9.

The Orange are unbeaten in their last five matches and have won four straight by a combined score of 7-1. This weekend will be important for them, as they travel to South Florida – which sits just two points behind them in third place of the American Division – as well as Marquette before finishing out the regular season at home against St. John’s. Marquette hosts St. John’s and Syracuse this weekend before closing out its campaign with South Florida at home next weekend. In essence, the Golden Eagles need to beat Syracuse Sunday to ensure a No. 1 seed and a bye in the first round of the Big East Tournament. Men’s Soccer It’s all out in front of the Golden Eagles now. When they beat Connecticut Saturday, it marked the first time in program history they had beaten the Huskies. It was the first time ever that Connecticut goalkeeper Andre Blake allowed three goals in a match. He had allowed four total all season. Now, Marquette will look See Titles, page 13

the facts: If Connecticut was the toughest Big East opponent the Golden Eagles will face this season, Georgetown is a close second. The Hoyas suffered recent losses to Notre Dame and the Huskies, but still sit at No. 3/9 in the nation. The recent losses mean Georgetown will be hungry for a win and eager to knock the still-undefeated Golden Eagles off their perch. Freshman forward Brandon Allen leads Georgetown with 18 total points including eight goals and two assists. The tandem of sophomore goaltender Tomas Gomez and junior goaltender Keon Parsa have combined to go 10-2 including five shutouts this season.

Titles: Teams poised for conference glory Top-to-bottom: Team takes first for first time since ‘08 to win its second straight Blue Division title. The win put Marquette even with Connecticut in points in the Blue Division with nine, but the Golden Eagles obviously own the tiebreaker. It won’t be easy for Marquette, however. Following a nonconference tilt with Northern Illinois tonight, the Golden Eagles travel to Washington, D.C., to take on Georgetown Saturday. The Hoyas were flying high at 10-0-1 as late as last Wednesday before dropping consecutive matches to Connecticut and Notre Dame last week. Georgetown hosts nonconference foe Lehigh this afternoon before hosting the Golden Eagles. Marquette has five conference games remaining, including three on the road. It must beat Georgetown and win one of two matches against Notre Dame at

the end of the year to ensure it controls its own destiny. Like I said, it won’t be easy, but this Golden Eagles team will get it done. Volleyball Last, but certainly not least, is the Bond Squad. Marquette improved to 5-0 in Big East play last weekend, but from what I understand it didn’t come easy. Coach Bond Shymansky was reportedly furious in the third and fourth sets of a five-set win over South Florida on Sunday afternoon. Nonetheless, the Golden Eagles scraped out their seventh straight win and remained perfect in conference play. This is the toughest of the three sports to gauge because Marquette still has 10 conference games remaining. A lot can happen between now and the finale against Notre Dame on Nov. 11.

The Golden Eagles have already knocked off the Irish on the road and will host Louisville and St. John’s – two of their toughest opponents – later in the season. Marquette does have to travel to Louisville as well, a match that should be very difficult. Let’s say Marquette goes 8-2 over its last 10 conference games (a conservative guess, to be sure), that still puts it at 13-2 in Big East play. Last year, the Golden Eagles won a programrecord 12 Big East matches and finished third. This year, a 13-2 record earns Marquette a No. 1 seed in the Big East Tournament, which it hosts for the second straight year. Ladies and gentlemen, we’re just getting started.

“I’m thrilled,” Prickette said. “I’m just really proud of the young guys and excited for the future of the program and honored to be a part of it just before my time’s up. We’re getting better every tournament, not just with our games, but in

our grit and determination and confidence.” Marquette won’t compete again until Oct. 22 in the Pinetree Intercollegiate, but it will no doubt head into that tournament with a sense of swagger it hasn’t had in years.

As the Marquette men’s golf team is coming off a successful weekend, one of the best players the program has ever had is continuing his attempt to break into the professional game. Mike Van Sickle owns most of the individual records at Marquette, including career victories, scoring average, career rounds of par or better, tournament finish percentage and career rounds played. Van Sickle was also a twotime Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar and a three-time Big East Academic All-Star. In 48 career collegiate events, Van Sickle finished in the top five 24 times. He was also ranked as high

as No. 4 in the world by the R&A World Amateur Golf Ranking. Nowadays, Van Sickle is playing his trade in the developmental tours around the country, primarily the eGolf Professional Tour and the Tour, formerly the Nationwide Tour.

Golden Eagles double up, win big at Invitational Team improves, soars past host of top-tier programs in Mich. By Kyle Doubrava

After an average outing at last weekend’s women’s tennis tournament in Orlando, Fla., Marquette knew it needed to quickly remedy its miscues for a tournament the following weekend. The Golden Eagles redeemed themselves at the Spartan Invitational this past weekend in East Lansing, Mich., earning a singles and doubles championship. Aina Hernandez Soler and Rocio Diaz paired up to go undefeated in their doubles group, and Laia Hernandez Soler emerged as a champion in her singles group. Coach Jody Bronson said she was much more impressed with how doubles performed after working all of last week on doubles with the team. “I think we’ve shown that we’ve gotten better,” Bronson said. “We’re doing certain things better in each tournament, so the things we try to

work on after we play in tournaments, those types of things are starting to show a little bit more.” The doubles championship came down to two pairs of Marquette players, with Ali Dawson and Aleeza Kanner falling to teammates Diaz and Hernandez Soler, 8-6. Bronson thought highly of the competition the team had to face and is thinking of the benefits from playing against slightly more difficult teams each time around. “There were a lot of teams in this tournament, and for the most part, there weren’t any bad matches,” Bronson said. “The level of play is getting better. There are a lot more international players on every team, so everybody has good players. You just have to be prepared and at your best all the time.” Some of the teams in the invitational included Michigan State, Wisconsin, Purdue, Dayton and Toledo. Freshman Erin Gebes is willing to go up against upper-tier teams and only sees this as a plus for when regular season matches come about. “I think a lot of teams in the tournaments have solid programs, and it’s nice to play against those teams because

we’ll be playing similarly leveled teams (in the spring),” she said. The next tournament for Marquette will be the ITA Midwest Regional in Champaign, Ill., from Oct. 18-20. The Golden Eagles put heavy stress on improving doubles for the Spartan Invitational. Before the next tournament, Gebes anticipates the team will review positions and other fundamentals. “I think for the next tournament we’re going to go back and work on positions,” Gebes said. “We played more aggressively (this weekend), but I think we can still try to come into that more. I think that we’ve made a lot of progress, and we’ll continue to work on doubles and singles, but there will be a lot of individual stuff we’ll be working on for each of us.” Bronson said she wants the momentum to carry over and that one of the best ways the team can do that is to concentrate on its goals. “I think you just need to be able to keep your focus, whether you’re up or down, and just be very aware of what’s going on in your match so you can take advantage when you need to,” Bronson said.

Win, draw make East Coast road trip bittersweet MU routs Friars, ties Huskies, snapping seven-game streak By Michael LoCicero

Photo courtesy of Marquette Athletics

Junior midfielder Maegan Kelly added goal number six of the season to her team-leading mark, and also picked up two assists in the 5-0 victory.

A dominating win and a disappointing draw highlighted the weekend for Marquette women’s soccer on the East Coast. The Golden Eagles put the pedal down and didn’t let up in a 5-0 win over Providence on Friday afternoon, before taking an early 1-0 lead against Connecticut, only to concede a goal in the second half and end up tying the Huskies 1-1 on Sunday. “Friday went really well,” coach Markus Roeders said. “We had a quick start to the match, and it was a good opportunity to try different matchups. Sunday, Connecticut is a really good team and has played a tough schedule already. “We played very well in stretches against them (Connecticut), but there was a 20 to 25 minute spell in the second half where neither team played great soccer, but they got their goal.” The draw was the first time Marquette hasn’t earned three points in a Big East game since

its first conference match last year against West Virginia. “It puts the bitter taste of tying a game where we could have come away with a win and we’ve been doing well on the road, but now it will be nice just to focus on playing at home,” Roeders said. The Golden Eagles scored three times in the first 10 minutes against the Friars Friday, with goals from senior defender Ally Miller, junior forward Maegan Kelly and junior midfielder Vanessa LegaultCordisco. It was Kelly’s team-leading sixth goal of the season and Miller’s fourth — a career-high. Miller’s previous goal record was two, which came in the 2010 season. Kelly also recorded two assists in the game, giving her nine for the season. In two-plus seasons for Marquette, Kelly has 27 goals and 25 assists. Senior forward Lisa Philbin finally broke into the scoring column, finishing a goal in the 29th minute to give Marquette an insurmountable 4-0 lead. Sophomore forward Mady Vicker’s second goal of the year finished the scoring for Marquette. On Sunday, the Golden Eagles saw their seven-match win streak come to an end, despite taking a 1-0 lead on

sophomore midfielder Mary Luba’s third goal of the year in the 37th minute. Connecticut didn’t respond until a goal on a penalty kick in the 62nd minute evened the score at 1-1. Roeders said Marquette played well in overtime and deserved “maybe three or four goals” but came away empty-handed. “We played some of our best soccer of the weekend during that overtime period, but it was just one of those things where the ball doesn’t bounce the right way,” Roeders said. Junior defenders Emily Jacobson and Katie Hishmeh agreed that Marquette got out of its game in the second half against Connecticut and that cost them a chance to win. “The Connecticut match helped us get better and gave us a push to get better,” Hishmeh said. “There was a lot of back and forth in that game, and that’s not how we play. We need to play more controlled with our possession.” “Connecticut did a good job of putting us under pressure to disrupt what we did – they were a very direct team, and we got into that,” Jacobson said. “We need to keep composure on the ball and attack our own way when we have opportunities.”

Spell of poor serving doesn’t derail Golden Eagles

Photo courtesy of Marquette Athletics

Marquette overcame what coach Bond Shymansky called “the worst serving perfomance” he’d ever seen to pull off two victories over Pittsburgh and South Florida in tight, five-set matches.

Coach not pleased with performance, but team moves to 5-0 By Patrick Leary

The Marquette women’s volleyball team battled for a pair of Big East victories over the weekend. On Friday night, Marquette knocked off Pittsburgh in four sets (25-22, 27-25, 2325, 25-13). It followed that up with a Sunday afternoon win in a five-set grind (25-11, 31-29, 21-25, 18-25, 15-12) against South Florida, and improved to 14-3 on the season and 5-0 in conference play, good for first place after three weeks. In both instances, the Golden Eagles faltered out of the intermission between sets two and three but were still able to fight back and win the match. Senior middle hitter Dani Carlson said team members knew they

couldn’t let either match slip. “We’re always motivated to get the win,” Carlson said. “Knowing that it’s so close to being in our hands, but yet it’s not in our hands, we realize that we just need to go after it.” The Golden Eagles were on the verge of losing the USF match, which they controlled after two sets, when the team kicked it into gear in the fifth set to pull out its second straight victory in five set matches. Shymansky said the team stopped enjoying volleyball in the third and fourth sets, something he preached to them before the deciding final frame. “We talk about the three C’s within our program,” Shymansky said, “communication, covering your hitter and celebrating. All those things are about emotional energy.” Marquette’s poor serving held it back against USF and almost cost them their first Big East defeat.It committed 21 service errors in the match, a

performance Shymansky said he’d never seen out of his team before. “This is the worst serving performance I’ve ever had as a head coach for any team,” Shymansky said. “That’s going to be a lot of practice reps. Serving is all mental preparation – there’s not a whole lot of technique involved. We made the mental preparation difficult tonight.” A key for the team in the two matches was the balanced attack it showed among its hitters. In both matches, four Marquette hitters recorded double digit kills. Carlson, senior right side hitter Holly Mertens and freshman outside hitter Erin Lehman notched more than ten kills in both contests. “We need balance,” Shymansky said. “Any great team in any sport has to have balance. You can’t rely on one player to win a team sport for you. We know that each night we may get different career highs from

somebody or career lows from somebody, but as a team we can work through that.” Against Pitt, senior middle hitter Kelsey Mattai recorded a career high 12 kills, hitting .857 on 14 swings. She credited great passes from junior setter Elizabeth Koberstein as a reason for her career-best performance. “I felt really confident, and I was having a lot of fun,” Mattai said. “Bisky was dishing the ball, and we had a good connection. I have to give her a lot of the credit.” Another key moment in the Pitt match came when sophomore outside hitter Lindsey Gosh landed awkwardly on her ankle in the second set. Gosh limped off but returned later in the set. Although she finished off the match and played on Sunday, she did not play her traditional full rotation role, which allowed junior outside hitter Casey Read and freshman defensive specialist Ellie Rauch to play longer.

“Ankle injuries are pretty common in volleyball,” Shymansky said. “She’ll get treated; she’ll be fine. I don’t have any problem with that.” On Tuesday night, Marquette will play a rare non-conference match in the midst of the Big East season when it hosts Western Michigan. Shymansky is excited at the prospect of another high quality opponent coming into the Al McGuire Center, especially one that beat Marquette last season. “We have a lot of revenge factor motivating us for this year,” Shymansky said. “We lost at their place last year on a Tuesday night just like this.” Ultimately, the Golden Eagles just need to keep winning in order to solidify their spot atop the Big East standings. “I don’t care how we get them,” Shymansky said. “We need to win, we need to keep on winning and we’re going to keep getting everybody’s best effort out there.”

Men’s Lacrosse

Team seizes the moment, takes both exhibitions High Point, Robert Morris surprised by young, upstart squad By Christopher Chavez

Marquette’s men’s lacrosse team took the field for the first time in school history on Saturday morning for the program’s first two exhibition matches of the year. The Golden Eagles stunned High Point and Robert Morris in the Nick Colleluori Lacrosse Classic to get off to a 2-0 start. Nerves, anxiety and excitement were all on display in the first moments of the game against High Point. The Panthers scored the first three points of the game and Marquette was down early.

Freshman attackman Connor Gately was ranked 58th on Inside Lacrosse’s Top 100 incoming freshmen prior to the school year. His goal was the first in school history and put Marquette on the board. It was the first of nine unanswered goals by the Golden Eagles. “I told the team there would be a moment where they ask themselves, ‘What are we going to be, or can I do this?’” coach Joe Amplo said. “Whether it’s in the first five minutes or the last five minutes, there will be a point where they say to themselves, ‘I can do this.’ The sooner we get everyone to that point, the better off we’re going to be as a group. I think I saw that as the day progressed.” Redshirt junior attackman Tyler Melnyk scored four goals in the 13-7 win over High Point. Melnyk played at Presbyterian, and when

he left, he was highly touted by several colleges and ultimately decided on Marquette when it also brought along his brother Matt and teammate Andrew Smistad. It has been more than a year since Melnyk played against another school, and he felt the team went into the game feeling confident about its preparation in the last year. “The last few weeks we’ve been going over possible (scenarios) and executing that in scrimmages,” Melnyk said. “It was different going out there and playing against guys you’ve never seen and hitting players not on your own team.” Redshirt sophomore Smistad was named the team’s captain back in May and saw the trip as a fun bonding experience for the team’s first trip together. He believes the team turned things around and rallied together when Matt

Melnyk laid an opposing player out and made the sidelines erupt. “Everyone was just so fired up after that play,” Smistad said. “We scored right after and it appeared that he sparked that whole run that we went on.” Amplo saw a lot of maturity from Matt Melnyk that goes beyond the scorecard. “I told the team that the more guys we get that have an appreciation and a care for Marquette lacrosse as much as Matt Melnyk does, the better off we’re going to be,” Amplo said. “Athletically we’re going to be who we become. Skill-wise we’re going to be who we become.” Amplo observed the simple things from Melnyk’s actions over the weekend. Between the two games, he gathered everyone together after winning their first game and prepared to face Robert

Morris, who was fresh without a morning contest. The emotional level was high before the High Point game, and Melnyk did his best to get the tired players back to that same level before taking on the team that had a top ranked offense in 2011. With another game planned for this weekend and the first at Valley Fields, the fall scrimmages are just building blocks for where Marquette is headed in Amplo’s vision for the team. “We are so far from where we need to be, but this was a good first step,” Amplo said. “I don’t want to overvalue this experience, but I want to make sure the guys know I’m happy with their performance and effort from the weekend. But we are by no means prepared yet to play a Division I contest and be competitive. We’re close, and we’re getting there.”
