9/11 still resonates in US a decade later Documentary shows five lives affected by national tragedy

Attack transformed national politics, security measures

People watched in awe, ran in fear and now retell their stories with pain in their eyes about the day the World Trade Center towers were attacked. Now, a new film tells the stories of how five lives have changed over the ten years since the tragedy. “Rebirth,” a documentary to be shown at the Weasler Auditorium on Sunday at 7 p.m., tracks the experiences of five people whose lives were torn apart by the events of 9/11. Following them for nine years, the film tells the story of how grief can turn into hope. The film premiered at the

Nearly a decade after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the attacks still affect how the U.S. and its people function. Fred Timmreck, father of Brian Timmreck, a sophomore in the College of Communication, has served as a firefighter in the Chicago Fire Department for 16 years. He went to New York six weeks after the attacks to assist in the memorial services of firefighters who died on 9/11, serving in processions and meeting the families of the deceased. “You go to Ground Zero and see what the destruction was

The Rev. Scott Pilarz has spent the year integrating with the community.

New president connects with students, faculty By Tony Manno anthony.manno@marquette.edu

It has been just over a year since the Rev. Scott Pilarz was

named Marquette’s 23rd university president, and already, he has been learning from students and faculty alike about how best to become integrated within the Marquette community and tradition. Since his arrival on campus the first weekend in August, Pilarz has been living on the fourth floor of Campus Town East among Marquette students.

It’s a custom he’s maintained as a faculty member and administrator at other universities. Thomas MacKinnon, chief of staff to the president, said Pilarz had always opted to live in student housing, including his time at Georgetown University and the University of Scranton. “I believe (living in campus housing) gives him a chance to get to know students personally and keep in touch with what it means to be a student at Marquette,” MacKinnon said. This living arrangement is just one of several ways Pilarz has familiarized himself with life in Milwaukee and with the university. “He had a great deal of time over the last year to meet with students, faculty and staff to learn about the Marquette community,” MacKinnon said. Stacie Dooley, associate dean of Residence Life University Apartments and Off-Campus Student Services, said Pilarz’s residence in university-owned apartments is key to becoming a part of campus. “It’s certainly a good way to stay in touch with student life,” Dooley said. Several campus offices prepared Pilarz’s apartment on the fourth floor of Campus Town East before his move-in day, Dooley said, including the Office of the University Architect, Facilities Services and the Office of Residence Life.

Mike Gousha talks to Washington County, Wisconsin resident Gordon Haberman in the latest “On the Issues.”

Daughter killed in World Trade Center on business trip By Olivia Morrissey olivia.morrissey@marquette.edu

The first “On the Issues with Mike Gousha” of the year began on a somber note and ended with a tearful standing ovation. Gordon Haberman, a Washington County, Wisconsin resident, sat down with Gousha to discuss his personal connection to the national tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001. Haberman said his daughter, Andrea, 25, had planned a business trip to New York City, but due to an upcoming family wedding, had to move her trip to an earlier date. On Tuesday the 11th, Andrea was on the 92nd floor of the World Trade Center when the hijacked airplane hit its target. She did not survive. Her father knew something was wrong when Andrea’s fiance, Al, called in a panic that morning. Watching the news only increased his concern. “I turned on the TV just in time to see the south tower hit,” Haberman said. “I just threw my coffee mug against the wall.” Still unsure of Andrea’s whereabouts, Haberman said he and his wife tried to contact authorities in the city. He said an FBI agent told them “it’s chaos here” and that he couldn’t provide more info. After speaking with the agent, Haberman and his wife decided to drive to New York to find Andrea on their own. Prior to leaving, they sent a picture of their daughter to every city agency possible.

“We had to find her somehow, but nobody knew she was there,” he said. “She was all alone in New York City, in the towers.” The Habermans drove nonstop from Wisconsin to New York City. Upon entering the city, Haberman said he was taken aback by the carnage left in the airplanes’ wake. Smoke plumed fifty stories high, fires spread across Manhattan and screams of grief echoed through the air. “It was just a scene from hell,” Haberman said. In the days following the attacks, Haberman said his daughter’s picture was hung among those of other missing persons. Helping calm him was Jessica Cramer, a New York Life insurance agency employee, who contacted him to say she was looking for Andrea. “She had called me and said, ‘Mr. Haberman, I am looking for your daughter,’” Haberman said. “(She) looked for Andrea because she remembered what it was like to be alone in New York.” He also praised Cramer for the help she and others provided to he and his wife. “She and the rest of our New York family put their strong arms around us,” he said. “Without them, I don’t think we would have made it.” He spoke of the arduous process of finding his daughter, and also the grieving of her death. Before articles could be released to families of victims, clearances from authorities had to be issued. Affidavits had to be signed before an interim death certificate could be obtained. Often times, a “find” was merely a piece of a body or belonging, he said. For several years after the attacks, local sheriffs arrived at his home, saying they had “found” Andrea.

“She was not killed in the attacks,” Haberman said. “She was tortured and murdered. There is no sugar-coating 9/11.” Following the events of that September day, Haberman said he needed to find peace in the tragedy, so he tried to understand why the attacks occurred. Haberman read writings of Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al-Qaida terrorist group responsible for the attacks. He also attended trials of al-Qaida terrorists and visited the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. He said he noticed defiance and little contrition from the offenders. By telling Andrea’s story, Haberman said he hopes to keep the memories of his daughter and of the attacks alive. Since 2001, others have reached out to help with his mission. Mike Nichols, director of the movies “The Graduate” and “Charlie Wilson’s War,” wrote a book released in August about Andrea, her family and the tragic events of Sept. 11. “The title is ‘Just a Few Sleeps Away,’ because that is what Andrea and Al (her fiance) said to each other when they were apart for a time,” said Nichols, who was also at the event Tuesday. Haberman also said to further ensure his daughter’s memory stays alive, Andrea’s purse – recovered at Ground Zero – will be displayed at a museum in New York commemorating those lost in the attacks. Although Haberman said he knows he cannot change what occurred that day, he realizes the importance of learning from the tragedy. “I don’t try to understand anymore,” Haberman said. “But I do know we must be vigilant to prevent it from happening in the future.”

Dajon Perique, a senior in the College of Education, said she appreciates the importance media outlets have given Hurricane Irene in their coverage.

MU senior recounts devastation, media coverage of storm By Simone Smith simone.smith@marquette.edu

From Aug. 27 to Sept. 1, the U.S. watched with apprehension as Hurricane Irene made its way

toward the East Coast. For one Marquette student, the latest hurricane brought back waves of painful memories. Dajon Perique, a senior in the College of Education, is a New Orleans native who evacuated her hometown on Aug. 28, 2005, the day before Hurricane Katrina hit. “We were going to go to Arkansas,” Perique said. “But because of traffic we stopped in Shreveport

can’t we decide what is and isn’t acceptable?” Marquette administration does not force professors to abide by a uniform set of rules regarding inclass technology. It is up to each professor to decide what is appropriate classroom etiquette. “I used to allow technology in class,” Feldner said. “I had multiple students complain that they felt distracted, so that’s why I now have these rules.” While many professors may appear stubborn in their policies, they hope to satisfy all students’ needs and establish good behavior, Clark said. “While students recognize that taking a phone call during class would be inappropriate and rude, they unfortunately don’t see texting in the same light,” Clark said. “However, texting or taking a phone call indicates that the student is more interested in communicating with that person than paying attention to the presentation or discussion in class.” It’s a sentiment some students, including Debella, can agree with. “When technology use becomes a distraction to other students, then it is a problem,” Debella said. Jackson Swartout, a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences, believes the laptop ban in some classes hinders his ability to learn because he uses his laptop for note taking. But he also sees the benefits of such a policy. “I know people go on StumbleUpon and Facebook all the time during class,” Swartout said. “I myself am guilty of it and I know that if laptops just weren’t allowed (in all classes), more people would pay attention to the professor.”

New Milwaukee bike path in the works $1.3 million project adds raised lane; more plans coming By Sarah Hauer sarah.hauer@marquette.edu

Cyclists will soon have greater reign over Milwaukee, with the addition of a new bicycle route this fall connecting the Bay View area with Downtown. Construction started in late summer on South Bay Street between East Potter Avenue and East Lincoln Avenue to build Wisconsin’s first raised bike lane. Mike Loughran, chief planning and developments engineer for the City of Milwaukee, said the raised bike lane means there will be a slightly raised, rolling curb separating moving traffic and bikes making it easier for cyclists to ride over and will

provide them more protection. “We recognize bicycling as a viable mode of transportation and are trying to make accommodations for cyclists,” Loughran said. Loughran said the project would be completed before Thanksgiving this year. The project will cost $1.3 million, 80 percent of which will be paid for by state and federal funds, and the remaining 20 percent contributed by the city, Loughran said. Over the last five years, Milwaukee has added more than 50 miles of bike lanes along with increased bike racks and bicycle education courses, Loughran said. Bicycle use is up 230 percent and the number of bicycle crashes is down 75 percent in Milwaukee, according to the American Community Survey, administered by the U.S. Census Bureau. The idea for the project came to fruition in the late 1990s

Within the next year Loughran said an off-road bike path would be built on Second Street between Maple Street and Washington Street. Plans are also in the works to make improvements to South Water Street by adding a bike lane, making railroad crossings, and removing railroad tracks not in use Loughran said. The city is also considering adding a bike lane on the Hoan Bridge. Last month a meeting was held for residents to support the construction of a bike path on the bridge. Loughran said a feasibility study is currently underway and the department will make an announcement within the next month.

Rebirth: Field producer has MU ties Sundance film festival this year and has been shown in theaters in Los Angeles, New York and Boston. It will be broadcast on Sept. 11 on Showtime. The film is directed by Jim Whitaker, executive producer for past films “8 Miles” and “Changeling,” but also showcases the work of field producer Danielle Beverly, a visiting professional in residence in digital media for the College of Communication. Beverly said the film is one of the most important things she has done in her life. “This documentary was epic,” Beverly said. “We had 14 film cameras, with a 35 mm time-lapse of the reconstruction of the World Trade Center as well as a human time-lapse where you watch five people go from deep grief to hope over nine years.” But Beverly said making the film was also emotionally draining. “This project was hard because you became attached emotionally to these families,” Beverly said. “But it was wonderful too because you became part of the family.” Tanya Villanueva Tepper, one

of the five people depicted, lost her fiancé in the attack and now is married with two children who call Beverly “Aunt Dana.” “The whole film crew was present at the births of Tanya’s two children,” Beverly said. “It was one of the several important life occasions that we filmed for this documentary.” The crew filmed interviews once a year, which often lasted 4-5 hours per person. “Jim would film two per day around the anniversary of 9/11, and we would also film events such as birthdays, Tanya’s wedding and 9/11 anniversary ceremonies,” Beverly said. Beverly predicts many viewers will connect with Nick Chirls, a high school student whose mother worked in finance at the World Trade Center and died in the attack. “Nick was 17 when we started filming and has since graduated from college,” said Beverly. “His is a story that applies to everyone at a certain point in their lives.” Khalil Isiah Perry, a sophomore in the College of Business Administration, said he was positive he

would attend the film. “That day was a day of sorrow,” Perry said. “The city was shut down for two days straight.” Perry said each time he goes to the city and sees Ground Zero, it’s eerie. “It’s like a ghost-town,” said Perry. “But watching this documentary might make it easier to get past everything that happened, not just for me but for others.” Paul Lisy, a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences, said he is not sure if he will watch the documentary. Lisy’s mother was supposed to be at work two blocks from ground zero but called in sick. His father was in the city at the time of the attack. “It’s as if it was yesterday that my dad came home at 2 a.m. with my neighbor who was covered in ash,” Lisy said. “I still remember watching the smoke come from the towers that next morning. I want to see this documentary, but I don’t know if I can handle watching it all happen again.”

Decade: Les Aspin students shaken

and think, ‘holy cow,’” Fred Timmreck said. He said while the fire department has received more training and equipment, specifically on terrorism, they need more money and consistent training to increase preparedness. “I think we’re a lot safer than we were 10 years ago,” he said. ”Are we real safe? No, not at all.” The attacks affected not only security for firefighters, but national politics as well. Christopher Murray, lecturer and coordinator of student affairs at the Les Aspin Center for Government in Washington, D.C., said he remembers being in the nation’s capital on Sept. 11 with students in the Les Aspin program. The students were out on internships that morning — most in congressional offices — at the time of the attacks, he said. They were evacuated and moved back to the center’s housing on Capitol Hill. All chose to stay in the program, though a few parents did want their children to return home, Murray said. These students saw the direct political aftermath from 9/11. Murray said politics became about how to respond to terrorist attacks and how to prevent future attacks. He said this resulted in the rapid passage of the Patriot Act, and later, the creation of the Department of Homeland Security. “Both of those were designed to deal with what many felt would be the new reality of American life and politics — the constant threat of terrorism,” Murray said. ”These policies rearranged and re-conceptualized large parts of the American government moving forward.” While concerns of terrorism and national security are still with us, they are no longer the immediate political focus, he said. Following Sept. 11, federal

expenditures increased significantly, said Abdur Chowdhury, professor and chair of economics at Marquette. “Significant amounts of resources (have been) employed to increase the security of production, distribution, finance and communication,” Chowdhury said. “These resources could have been used for other productive purposes.” Chowdhury said this could have negative economic effects. The attacks on Sept. 11 also had social implications, specifically on the heroic male role in television, said Pamela Hill Nettleton, an assistant professor of journalism at Marquette. “Our 9/11 heroes were victims, our national defenses were easily perforated,” Nettleton said. “Media wanted images of strong men rescuing victimized women for front pages, but three times as many

men died as did women.” Nettleton said this new image of a hero made masculine roles on television more human. Heroes were given flaws, she said. Timmreck said for the year following the attacks, people would stop and wave to the fire truck passing, and although that doesn’t happen anymore, he believes firefighters are still thought of as heroes. “My firehouse is on the south side (of Chicago),” Timmreck said. “I see the Sears and the Hancock as I drive down the Kennedy (expressway), and I still think about what could happen any day I’m at work.”

Haggerty makes Milwaukee art accessible to all New exhibition showcases ten local visual artists By Vanessa Harris vanessa.harris@marquette.edu

Milwaukee isn’t often recognized for its art beyond the masterpieces at the Milwaukee Art Museum, yet there is a massive amount of talent outside its walls living right here in the city. And while art can be intimidating for some, much of this Milwaukeebased art is accessible to anyone. The Haggerty Museum of Art’s newest exhibition, “Current Tendencies II,” is a perfect example of local art that can mean as much to the everyday individual as it can to a professional art critic. Running through Dec. 31, the exhibition features a variety of media, including photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, video and sculpture. All the pieces come from 10 Milwaukee area artists: Reginald Baylor, Mark Brautigam, Nathaniel Stern, Jessica Meuninck-Ganger, Julian Correa, Lisa Hecht, Sharon Kerry-Harlan, Luc Leplae, Will Pergl and Jordan Waraksa. “Current Tendencies II” has been a process two years in the making. Its 2009 predecessor, “Current Tendencies,” was a successful show featuring artists from around Wisconsin. When it came to proposing new talent for the present exhibition, the Haggerty staff realized most of the suggested artists hailed from Milwaukee. “It seemed that as we were working on the exhibition, we were bringing more Milwaukee artists to the front,” said Lynne

Shumow, curator of education and community outreach at the Haggerty. “That’s when we decided to make it all Milwaukee artists.” Living in the same city provides all the artists with a common background, but their work touches on different issues and themes that reach across not only multiple academic disciplines, but also various real-life experiences. Walking through the exhibition exposes viewers to a wide range of art all together in one space. For instance, Sharon KerryHarlan’s earthy tone pieces on quilt-like material have a strong social-political message, whereas photographer Mark Brautigam captures simple moments so intriguing that viewers can create their own narrative behind it. “We’re not showing art just for art’s sake here,” Shumow said. “Artists are applicable to everything.” The Haggerty is an academic partner of Marquette, so the exhibitions are often incorporated into different curricula. With this Photos courtesy of the Haggerty Museum of Art exhibition’s focus on Milwaukee, This photo is just one piece from Milwaukee-based photographer Mark Brautigam’s “On Wisconsin” series.

Celebrating the iconic Calatrava 10 years later MAM exhibition shows Quadracci Pavillion evolution By Jennie Jorgensen jennifer.jorgensen@marquette.edu

Ten years ago, the dramatic addition of the Quadracci Pavilion at the Milwaukee Art Museum stretched its wings for the first time. The building has since been featured on “American Idol,” “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” served as a backdrop for a Victoria’s Secret television commercial and has been dubbed the sexiest building in the world by VirtualTourist.com. Now a proud Milwaukee lakefront icon, MAM will celebrate a decade of Santiago Calatrava’s architectural masterpiece. “Building a Masterpiece: Santiago Calatrava and the Milwaukee Art Museum,” an exhibition highlighting the construction of the entirely custom-made project, opens today and runs through Jan. 1. Watercolors, models, videos and photographs will trace the evolution of the design, including the Burke Brise Soleil (the wings) perched high above the Quadracci Pavilion. It all started after a 1975 addition which – despite increasing MAM’s space – still didn’t quite reveal the museum to the public eye. In the early ’90s, the museum board craved a new, grand architectural statement, said Brady Roberts, chief curator of MAM. Following the museum’s receipt of a then-anonymous $10 million donation from Betty and Harry Quadracci, the board began an international architect search. It took a year for the search committee to find the right man for the job: Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, who began working on the addition in 1995. After three years of construction and three years of designing, the

Architect Santiago Calatrava visited the Milwaukee Art Museum every month during the three-year construction process of the Quadracci Pavillion.

Spaniard’s first United States commission was complete in September of 2001. “It’s interesting that the committee selected an architect who was designing extraordinary buildings in Europe, but who hadn’t yet done any work in the U.S.,” Roberts said. “This building put Calatrava on the map.” The uniqueness and sophistication of the design took people by surprise at the start of the project. Since every element was custommade, Calatrava had a lot of explaining to do. “Calatrava came here every month during construction to explain to people what they were going to do,” Roberts said.

“Nobody had ever done a building like this before. It was all new to everyone and they had to work with him to figure out what the concepts were.” While many hopeful architects take their designs to engineers only to discover their ideas defy physics and cannot be done, Calatrava very carefully designed the Quadracci Pavilion with an understanding of engineering and physics from square one. “Most buildings are boxes,” Roberts said. “There’s nothing else that looks like the pavilion and nothing standard about its design.” Such a rare building began attracting attention as soon as the

designs were officially released to the public in 1997, Roberts said. More than a decade later, the Quadracci Pavilion still attracts national and international visitors and attention. Roberts said “Building a Masterpiece: Santiago Calatrava and the Milwaukee Art Museum” aims not only to celebrate a landmark, but also to allow people a closer look into the framework of a building which in many ways has become the symbol of the city. “There’s a lot of pride amongst Milwaukeeans. This is an opportunity to really understand [the Quadracci Pavilion] in a much deeper way, and I think it will

increase people’s appreciation for the building,” he said. Because so many people visit the Pavilion daily and snap pictures for permanent reminders of its uniqueness, the exhibition will also feature a screen with a changing matrix of submitted photos from visitors, Roberts said. The photos will be entered into a contest, with a Canon digital camera as the prize for the winning photo. “Building a Masterpiece: Santiago Calatrava and the Milwaukee Art Museum” runs from Sept. 8 to Jan. 1 at the Milwaukee Art Museum, 700 N.

Two venues, two anniversaries, one objective The Borg Ward and Cactus Club both think local By Liz McGovern elizabeth.mcgovern@marquette.edu

When you think of undiscovered talent, you may think of actors moving to Los Angeles or aspiring musicians auditioning for “American Idol.” What you may not think of is all the talent waiting to be discovered right here in Milwaukee. The Borg Ward Collective and the Cactus Club are two Milwaukee venues that focus on lesserknown and often local talent. This fall, both venues are celebrating anniversaries and hosting special shows in honor of them. Midway through 2007, a few local artists pooled resources to create a music venue. They found like-minded artists and volunteers, rented and renovated a building and in the end established a communal place for emerging visual and musical artists in the Milwaukee area. Thus, the Borg Ward Collective, 823 W. National Ave., was born.

In the past four years as the venue has grown, a sense of community has established among those who frequent it. Joe Smith, a member of the Borg Ward, said in an e-mail, “We consider ourselves a community space and book events as such, allowing anything from high school bands playing their first shows to fundraisers for local non-profits.” The recurrent concert-goers of the venue decided collaboratively which bands to showcase for their fourth anniversary concert. The bands selected for the lineup either play at Borg Ward often, attend concerts themselves or are favorites of the Borg Ward. The fourth anniversary show takes place on Friday, Sept. 9. The event will feature a barbecue at 6 p.m., and a free show starting at 7 p.m. Trin Tran, Absolutely, Dan of Earth, Soup Moat and Sacrificial Massacre will be performing. The venue hopes to continue to explore experimental music and test the limits in the future. “We are committed to artists and musicians who push boundaries,” Smith said. The Cactus Club’s venue, 2496 S. Wentworth Ave., is celebrating

its 15th anniversary, despite its location in a century-old building. Since its opening, the Cactus Club has featured a variety of well known acts such as The White Stripes, Queens of the Stone Age, Death Cab for Cutie, Spoon and Bright Eyes. But the same venue that hosts Grammy Award-winning outfits also gives attention to lesser-known Milwaukee acts. Instead of cramming the 15th anniversary show into one day, or even one week, the venue has decided to make their celebration of music from artists big and small last until the end of October. Kicking off the festivities this Monday at 8 p.m. are MC Chris, MC Lars, Mega Ran and Adam WarRock. Jaill and Jacuzzi Boys will be performing Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m., and the Japanese-based Melt Banana, Centipedes and Protestant will take the stage starting at 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15. What do these venues have in common? An appreciation for undiscovered talent. Christina Kowalsky, a sophomore in the College of Communication, has a passion for experimental, alternative and underground music. Kowalsky is

interested in the music business and has worked with MusicSkins LLC, Syndicate Records and Red Bull Records. “I love underground music because of its honesty,” Kowalsky said in an e-mail. Kowalsky stresses the importance of supporting local bands.

“All of the acts that are seen on TV and heard on the radio started out somewhere,” Kowalsky said. “At one point in her life, Lady Gaga was playing under the name ‘Stefani’ in little piano bars across New York. Now she’s a multimillionaire. You never know who could be next.”

Milwaukee hiphop gives back

Sarah Elms Hip-hop has a lot of negative stereotypes. The music and lifestyle are tagged as violent, vulgar, sexist and illicit, and most mainstream artists do nothing but fuel this image with their shallow lyrics and sensationalized music videos. But I’m proud to say the artists of the Milwaukee hip-hop scene are anything but gun-toting, womanizing, crime-committing individuals. I’m not an expert on Milwaukee’s hip-hop scene by any means, but I listen to a fair amount of its music and stay up to date on anything Milwaukee music-related, and I can tell you our hip-hop circle is all about one thing: community. And not just their community, but the Milwaukee community as a whole. Our local hip-hop artists are using their talents in music and art to unite people with common interests behind efforts that benefit the city as a whole. A perfect example of this is the “Hip-Hop Hates ...” concert series, hosted and developed by Milwaukee-born rapper and OnMilwaukee.com music contributor JC Poppe. The series is dedicated to raising money and awareness for different causes, with the first two shows dubbed Hip-Hop Hates Multiple Sclerosis and Hip-Hop Hates Breast Cancer. The latest installment, HipHop Hates HIV/AIDS, is a benefit for the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin. The show is coming up on Friday, Sept. 23 at the Cactus Club in Bay View. Doors open at 9 p.m. and the music starts at 10 p.m. DJ Bizzon of The Mad Kids show on WMSE will serve as house DJ, and local artists Prophetic, Streetzn-Young Deuces, Lah-Kid and Pacino will all be performing. According to a write up by

Poppe circulating area hip-hop blogs, Poppe hopes to raise $1,000 through the event and asks attendees to donate a $5 minimum at the door. All donations go straight to the ARCW. I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing both Poppe and Bizzon in the past, and I can tell you their cause is earnest. Poppe is one of the most vocal members of Milwaukee hip-hop, and possibly one of its harshest critics. Bizzon values true hip-hop, not the commercial alternatives you see on MTV. Both respect the Milwaukee community and break the negative stereotypes I mentioned above. Events like “Hip-Hop Hates ...” not only bring the hip-hop community together, but they also bring the city together for a common cause. People who before would have never considered spending their Friday night at a hip-hop show are showing up and enjoying themselves right alongside the regulars to the scene, and it’s all in the name of a good cause. What’s more, this series isn’t the only thing Milwaukee hiphop artists are involved in that promotes a healthy and safe community. The seventh annual Put the Guns Down Festival took place this past Sunday in Washington Park, kicking off with a neighborhood march and wrapping up with performances by local rap artists. TRUE Skool, Inc. is a Milwaukee non-profit that works to empower youth and young adults through two main programs, Urban Arts and Adopt a Community. According to their website, they believe “popular culture, specifically hip-hop culture, has the power to provide unexplored opportunities for youth,” and they incorporate that into their organization’s work towards building a better future for these kids. Concerts and programs like these help the community as well as demonstrate the sense of pride these individuals truly have in our city. Milwaukee’s hip-hop artists deserve recognition beyond that of negative stereotypes and assumptions. They deserve our support and appreciation. sarah.elms@marquette.edu

Thriller packs toothless bite ‘Shark Night 3D’ falls short with all dialogue, no action By Matt Mueller matthew.mueller@marquette.edu

As a self-proclaimed film snob, I like my movies to get me thinking. I want complex and interesting characters interacting in unique stories that leave me guessing what will happen next. I want to walk out of the theater asking questions and analyzing what the movie has to say about our society. But sometimes, I just want to watch sharks make delicious entrees out of mindless college students. This would appear to be the main draw of the new thriller “Shark Night 3D,” but unfortunately, the movie missed this memo. Instead, the film keeps the sharks to a minimum and pushes the tedious dialogue and characters to front and center, causing the picture to sink like an anvil. The aquatic adventure follows a group of college students on their trip to a house on a salt water lake to relax, drink and hopefully not get brutally murdered. The characters have names, but they are more definable by their various horror movie stereotypes, like the quiet, yet noble hero, the comedic relief or the guy most likely to die first. All is going well on this trip until a seemingly innocent wakeboarding accident leaves a collegiate with one less arm than he started with. The students discover there are sharks in the lake, and that this isn’t a natural phenomenon. Locals have put the predators there and are using them for a diabolical, as well as hilarious, scheme. I won’t spoil their master plan because it is the lone piece of dialogue that delivers on “Shark Night 3D’s” promise of B-movie fun. But the rest of Will Hayes and Jesse Studenberg’s screenplay is lethally dull. The film attempts to develop its stereotypical characters and give each some back story, which is normally a commendable screenwriting tactic. In the case of “Shark Night,” however, the audience isn’t there for intense character development. Most of these characters are stock stereotypes, and the development doesn’t add anything new to make their interactions interesting.

David R. Ellis’ thriller “Shark Night 3D” is far from a catchy summer flick.

That said, the script is not helped by the young cast. The band of unknowns, including Sara Paxton, known mostly for being Bill Paxton’s daughter, and “90210’s” Dustin Milligan, seem just as bored with their lines as the audience is listening to them. The cast also features “American Idol’s” season five runner up Katharine McPhee, who may have a great singing range but is pretty onenote when it comes to acting. Director David R. Ellis is equally lost at sea. Under his control, the conversations seemingly drag on forever. Then, as if making up for time wasted on dialogue, Ellis uses cheap tricks—like sped up montages—to move the film along. One particular shot featuring a character walking to a chair was apparently so valuable it needed to be repeated three times, a technique that wasn’t cool when “Salute Your Shorts” did it in the ’90s and has not gotten better with age. Not surprisingly, “Shark Night

3D” is at its best when it features its star attraction: the sharks. Since the film is PG-13, the attacks are not as gruesomely entertaining as last summer’s B-movie masterpiece, “Piranha 3D.” Ellis and his writers, however, come up with several entertaining ways for the sharks to introduce themselves mouth-first to the meaty students. Unfortunately, the sharks only make up about 10 percent of the final product. The other 90 percent would be more accurately titled “Conversation Night 3D.” Ellis, who was at the helm of the infamous “Snakes on a Plane,” seems to have a habit of overpromising and under delivering when it comes to his B-movies. He continually allows himself to get bogged down with tedious characters and dialogue instead of giving the audience the ridiculous thrills they want. There is some fun to be had with “Shark Night 3D,” but most of it bites.

SI writer delivers MU’s ‘King’s Speech’ Tells students to learn to diversify By Trey Killian

robert.killian@marquette.edu

Sports Illustrated readers and Sunday Night Football watchers know Peter King as a giant in the field of NFL media. Tuesday, the author of the “Monday Morning Quarterback” column visited Marquette to share advice and his experiences with prospective journalists and football fans. The lengthy name of King’s speech gave a straightforward statement of his purpose: “Why You’re Kidding Yourself If You Think You Only Need to be Good at One Medium Coming Out of College.” “One of the things I like to do when I speak to younger people is try to emphasize to them how much this whole thing has changed,” King said. “You’re in a totally different world than the one I entered in 1980 when I got a job covering sports at The Cincinnati Enquirer.” King stressed the importance of spending some time working with each type of media rather than specializing in a particular medium. “In an ideal world you should work one year with the school paper, one year with the radio station, one year with the T.V. station and then maybe use one year to figure out what you liked the most and do that again,” he said.

Eager to entertain as well as lecture, King sprinkled anecdotes from his years with Sports Illustrated throughout the speech, including stories from his time with the Green Bay Packers, coach Mike Holmgren and a young Brett Favre. King recalled his excitement on being the first reporter to publish the full story of Favre’s trip to rehab in 1996, but explained how differently the situation may have turned out in the modern world. “I talked to Favre eight days before the story appeared in front of anybody in the United States,” King said. “What happens today doesn’t wait eight days.” King said, in a modern-day setting, within 15 minutes of talking to Favre he would’ve put out about three tweets, written a story on it for SI.com, and the PR department at Sports Illustrated would’ve probably made a deal for him to be on “SportsCenter” that night. He also shared that he had just recorded his first podcast with Philadelphia Eagles’ cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha based on his desire as a journalist to go outside his comfort zone. “Don’t do what everybody else does just because it’s the way it’s always been done,” King said. “You just don’t know what’s going to happen over the next few years in terms of information dissemination.” Later, in a panel discussion, King talked more about his day-

to-day job, including his Sunday sessions with the cast of “Football Night in America” in front of nine big screens viewing every NFL game. He shared his experience covering the Michael Vick dogfighting story before thinking back to the one piece of advice he would’ve given himself as he left college. “Don’t worry about the next job,” King said. “You don’t get a job in this business by seeking the next job. You get a job by working

your rear end off and being really good.” After answering a few basic NFL questions from the crowd, King stayed an additional hour and a half to answer every remaining viewer’s questions. “I really enjoyed it and I think he’s a very knowledgeable, funny guy,” Adam Ballent, a sophomore in the College of Communication, said. “He really inspired me to get out of my own comfort zone.” King agreed to stop by Mar-

quette on his way to Green Bay at the request of MUTV Sports Director Tess Quinlan, a sophomore in the College of Communication. Quinlan played left field for King’s travel softball team as a youth, and the two have kept close contact over the years. “I was definitely not (a Sports Illustrated reader) at the age of 10,” Quinlan said, “but in one of the best summers of my life I got to know not only Peter the coach, but Peter the person as well.”

Golden Eagles’ homestand UFC pain has begins against Golden Eagles never felt so good

Carlson, Mrotek creating chances for outside hitters By Mark Strotman mark.strotman@marquette.edu

After a nine-day, seven-game road trip that took the Marquette women’s volleyball team through Iowa and Nebraska, coach Bond Shymansky and the Golden Eagles will be back on their home floor for the first time this season when they host the Marquette/Milwaukee Invitational. Marquette faces Southern Mississippi and Akron on Friday before making a short trip to Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the other site for the invitational, for a Saturday night showdown. The Golden Eagles will finish the tournament with a Tuesday evening match against Wisconsin-Green Bay. “I think it gets them jacked up, but in a good way,” Shymansky said of his players getting to play at home. “And that’s to our benefit. They’re excited to come home and play in our own gym in front of a home crowd with families, friends and students.” Freshman setter Chelsea Heier said she welcomes the upcoming home games as well. “It will be easier for us because we know the court, and we won’t be as tired from traveling,” she said. “And to have our own fans there will help us as well.”

The Golden Eagles will begin an eight-game home stand (outside of the short trip to face the Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers) that will keep them in Milwaukee until Sept. 29, when they travel to Sacred Heart before beginning their Big East schedule. The home stand is sure to be a boost for the Golden Eagles, who were 9-2 at the Al McGuire Center a year ago. A familiar opponent will be the Panthers, who the Golden Eagles swept last year thanks to 18 kills from current senior out-

side hitter Ciara Jones. Shymansky said the rivalry match will be an important one for his team. “There’s always something a little extra in that match,” he said. “We are now two teams that know and understand each other very well, and that can make for a very tough match at times.” The Panthers hold a 46-25-1 record all-time against Marquette The Southern Mississippi See Homestand, page 16

Erik Schmidt Bam! You just got punched in the face. Did it hurt? Did it feel like a twoton truck just ran over your ugly mug? Good. Now get used to it. Mixed martial arts isn’t going anywhere. Actually, it’s going everywhere. Two weeks ago, the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) — which, like the NBA or NFL in their respective sports, is the head honcho of the fighting scene — inked a seven-year deal with network juggernaut Fox. The mega deal includes four fights a year on Fox and the reality television show “The Ultimate Fighter” airing on sister channel FX. Ouch. It hurts so good. For the few tree-hugging sissy pacifists out there who haven’t gotten wise to the world’s fastest growing sport, let me make something clear: This is a huge deal. It means MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) is validated. It means the UFC has arrived. Just nod your head and throw a steak on that eye. It’s starting to swell. The landscape of mainstream culture is going to shift dramatically from here on out. MMA is no longer buried on Spike and Versus, secluded from the world like some

sort of savage secret. It’s right out in the open now. The gloves are off. Imagine: In between cartoon comedies and medical mysteries, there’s now going to be neck cranks and gogoplatas (which is a very painful choke hold). After “So You Think You Can Dance?” there’s going to be “So Do You Think You Can Dodge This Crane Kick to the Mouth?” Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre are going to be the new LeBron and Kobe. Sounds like good, clean, family fun. And it is, which it what some people can’t seem to get a handle on. Yes, MMA is brutal. It’s bloody. Occasionally, it can be downright barbaric — I’m looking at you B.J. Penn, licking his opponent’s blood off his gloves — but it’s also poetically beautiful. It’s a dance with pain as the theme song. It’s a chess match where bodies topple instead of kings. There’s a reason they’re called mixed martial artists, after all. They’re geniuses of their crafts, just like any other professional athlete. They do what grounded mortals can’t, what thunderstruck plebeians only dream of — which is the point of watching sports in the first place, to see the absolute pinnacle of human achievement. And what’s more fascinating than a man who can leap off a chain-link cage, knife throw the air and roundhouse kick his opponent in one deft move? Yes, MMA will do just fine next to football and break dancing. But back to the deal for a moment. See UFC, page 15

Kelly beat her defender off a long ball, chipping the Panther goalie from outside the 18-yard box to give Marquette the victory.

Hishmeh pulls out all the right moves Has helped anchor a stingy backline By Michael LoCicero michael.locicero@marquette.edu

If it’s true that offense wins game, but defense wins championships, it’s safe to assume that this year’s Marquette women’s soccer team will win — and win often. While many accolades and recognitions are rightfully given to the Golden Eagles’ dynamic back line duo of senior defender Kerry McBride and senior goalkeeper Natalie Kulla, it’s players like sophomore defender Katie Hishmeh who do the little things that have helped Marquette to three consecutive NCAA Tournaments. Hishmeh has started every game of her collegiate career, and there is no reason why that will change anytime soon. Unless, of course, she encounters an injury busting out some of her killer dance moves. “You don’t really see her dancing that much, but she probably is literally the best dancer on our team,” sophomore midfielder Sam Vicker said. “She has a ton of secret dance moves.” Hishmeh’s reluctance to show her hidden talent reflects well with her play on the field. The stats may not show it (0 goals, 3 assists in her career), but the team knows that Hishmeh is vital for its continued success. “She is very consistent from the left side and she has done it since the very first day she stepped onto the field last year,” coach Markus Roeders said. The quintet of Hishmeh, Kulla, McBride, and junior defenders Ally Miller and Megan Jaskowiak have allowed just four goals in six games, which helped propel Marquette’s 6-1-0 start.

The team will have to rely on Hishmeh and the rest of the back line if it wants to sustain its run of success, including repeating as Big East American Division champions for the third straight year. Marquette’s back line will face stiff competition in the coming weeks from prolific scorers like West Virginia’s senior forward Blake Miller and Notre Dame’s senior forward Melissa Henderson and sophomore forward Adriana Leon. Hishmeh acknowledges that it’s not just her that will keep others from scoring, but rather a collective team effort, both on and off the field. “I expect us to be successful by working together and getting to know each other more, because that definitely plays a part besides just winning,” Hishmeh said. Marquette has already been challenged by teams like Florida State and Long Beach State, and will soon enter the Big East season that includes matches with preseason American Division favorite West Virginia and at home against defending national champion Notre Dame. If the thought of Hishmeh getting rattled is a concern, Roeders offers a compelling piece of advice. “She’s solid as a rock and provides a great consistency to our team,” Roeders said. “She’s very composed, and doesn’t try to shine the spotlight on herself and wants the team to do well.” Hishmeh said her aspirations when she was younger were to be a dancer, but it’s safe to say Roeders is glad she decided to play soccer at Marquette instead. “We’re really happy with her play and just want her to keep elevating that,” Roeders said. “She’s played against a lot of really great players, and at the end of the day she just embraces it and wants to do well.”

Sisters find way on soccer and cross country rosters By A.W. Herndon

astead.herndon@marquette.edu

Several years before they were standout athletes, Marquette’s Vicker trio were already roaming the halls of the Alumni Memorial Union. Raised in neighboring Whitefish Bay, the girls often accompanied their father, Todd Vicker, to his job as an administrator in the AMU. “We’ve grown up around the city and have all been coming to the Marquette campus for years,” freshman Mady Vicker said. “Sometimes we would just hang out and have fun around the Brew waiting for our dad.” Fast forward a decade and a couple things have changed. Yes, the Vickers have reunited, but this time they’re taking Marquette athletics by storm. This semester freshmen twins Mady and Kenzie joined their sister, junior Sam Vicker, as student athletes; Mady and Sam are on the women’s soccer team, while Kenzie runs cross-country. Together they form three bubbly, energetic young ladies. Individually, however, their personalities are very distinct. “When I found out they were coming, I was excited but also a little nervous,” Sam said. “My sisters are a little too friendly. When we were in high school they would be saying hi to my friends, who were seniors. I would ask, ‘How do you even know them?’” This time around, Mady wants to be more conscious of her role as a freshman and also as Sam’s little sister.

“Part of the reason I came to Marquette was that I wanted to play with Sam for a few years,” Mady said. “I try to work really hard to get better, and plus, I don’t want to embarrass her.” There is certainly an element of sibling rivalry present in the relationship between the three. “I just have really high expectations for Mady, and as an older sister I want to make sure she does well,” Sam said. “Sometimes, I will get mad at her and see some of my teammates coming to pick her up and make sure she’s doing well. I don’t know why they choose her side.” Kenzie Vicker, off to a blistering pace this cross-country season, is quick to mention that the sisters did not intend to go to the same school, it just worked out with the programs. Marquette, however, seems to be the only thing the Vickers can agree on. “We’re so competitive at home. I mean, everything is a competition,” she said. Take the doctor’s office: Kenzie and Mady were stopping through

for a routine checkup when the physician needed to draw their blood. Kenzie thought nothing of it as she went first, but after the doctor took Mady’s sample, she could not pass up the opportunity for a jab at her twin saying, “Even my blood is faster than yours.” Although a hindrance to family game night, this competitive drive has fueled the Vickers to each become successful athletes in their own right. Each ran crosscountry, track or played soccer at some point through high school, with Mady even making it to state as a sprinter. The sisters credit their parents with their athletic success, and know that this opportunity is special for them. “Our parents love coming to our competitions,” Sam said. “They’re glad we’re here, so they can stay involved in our athletic careers.” Having support is nice, but Kenzie saved the best benefit for last. She smiled, saying, “It’s just nice to have someone to share clothes with.”

UFC: FOX’s bloody hit

The first fight airs on Fox Nov. 12 and will be headlined by a showdown between heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez and top challenger Junior dos Santos, two supremely skilled, atomic bomb-throwing young bruisers. A match like that could cost $50 or more on pay-per-view, depending on the fight. Here, the UFC and Fox give it to you for the cost of

obtaining a television. Because they care. Because they want to make a meteoric impact with the first ever UFC show on network television. Because they want everyone to get that this MMA thing isn’t a flash in the pan, that it might be, could be, the greatest sport in the world. Bam! You just got sucker punched by MMA. Did it hurt? Did it feel like

a piano falling on you from the top floor? Good. Because if you didn’t see this coming, this colossal deal that has pushed MMA into everyday consciousness, then you simply weren’t paying attention. And, for that, you deserve to bleed. erik.schmidt@marquette.edu

Homestand: Injuries topped Milwaukee Cup on the line again Golden Eagles will also provide a test for Shymansky’s group. Picked to finish second in Conference USA, the other Golden Eagles feature an impressive, experienced front row in junior outside hitter Halie Ecker and senior middle blocker Lauren Sears. Shymansky’s group, however, will begin the home stand with some momentum after his squad picked up two wins (over South Dakota and Creighton) last weekend in the Bluejay Invitational. Along with the weekend’s

superb play from Jones (46 kills) and the reigning Big East Freshman of the Week, setter Chelsea Heier (13.63 assists per set), sophomore right side hitter Courtney Mrotek had a careerbest weekend in Omaha, racking up 31 kills in three matches and finishing with a .349 hit percentage. There was uncertainty as to who would fill the void at right side hitter left by junior Dani Carlson, who moved to middle hitter, but those questions have been answered early in the season.

“It’s a different dynamic and it leaves our offenses to have everyone one-on-one, and that’s starting to happen,” Jones said. “You still have these other options who are going to put the ball away so it’s really nice.” Redshirt junior right side hitter Holly Mertens and senior outside hitter Ashley Beyer have each dealt with ankle injuries early on that can be attributed to Marquette’s .241 hitting percentage, but Beyer showed improvement this past weekend and is inching closer to full strength.

Men look to avoid a second straight loss to Panthers By Mike Nelson michael.e.nelson@marquette.edu

The last time men’s soccer coach Louis Bennett brought Marquette to Engelmann Stadium to battle the Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers, Bennett said the “single biggest crowd to ever see a college game in (Milwaukee)” was on hand. On Friday Bennett will bring his team back to challenge the Panthers for the first time since they ruined Marquette’s 2010 season opener in a 4-2 loss at Valley Fields. “I think (this game) should be called the “Milwaukee People’s Cup” because this is for the (Milwaukee) community,” Bennett said. “This is all the people who love college soccer. (They) show up to this game. It always attracts close to 2,000 people.” Milwaukee (2-1) enters Friday’s match on a two game winning streak after defeating Western Illinois (2-0) and Western Michigan (4-0) over the weekend to win the Panther Invitational — the event Marquette finished second at. In Marquette’s 1-0 loss to Western Illinois it accumulated 20 shots — the most since Oct. 6 2004 — but failed to convert a single shot into a goal. “Finishing has been a huge problem for us. We had (20) shots against Western Illinois, and we only had eight on target, which for us is terrible,” said junior midfielder Ryan Robb. “(Bennett) expects that at least 80 percent of our shots are on target. That’s not to say it’s just the forward guy, but it’s myself

Italian national team striker and Manchester City mercenary Mario Balotelli is no stranger to controversy. There was that incident in August of last year when he crashed his $80,000 Audi A8 on his way to practice, sending a 25-year Manchester City ticket holder home with a few scars and a wounded BMW. As if that wasn’t bad enough, police found Super Mario carrying 5,000 pounds in cash. When asked why he would carry such a large amount of money he answered, “Because I am rich.” Then there was that time in March when he was fined 100,000 pounds for throwing darts at Manchester City youth players . . . out of boredom. That same month he left a game at halftime because of an allergic reaction to the field’s grass.

included and the other midfielder guys.” The defense looks to get its senior leader, Michael Alfano, back Friday on the heels of losing freshman defender Axel Sjoberg for four to six weeks with a right foot injury. Alfano practiced without a jersey on Tuesday, designating him for no contact, Bennett said. On Monday he had said that if Alfano could practice without the jersey by midweek he would play Friday, but is listed as questionable. If Alfano can go, Bennett said the ideal plan for the backline would be for Alfano to assume the right back position and for freshman defender Jon Mau to take over the center back position — his natural position according to Bennett. Rather than competing for the Panther Invitational title, as the two teams did this past weekend, Friday will be a battle for the Milwaukee Cup. Marquette earned this trophy in 2009 after a 1-0 victory, but it has since spent the past year in the Panthers’ paws. “Whenever we play UWM it’s always going to be a tough game no matter how strong or weak their side is because it’s a crosstown rivalry,” redshirt sophomore forward Adam Lysak said. “On that day every tackle will have a little extra ‘oomph’ on it. Everything’s going to be a little harder and a little faster than what would be considered normal.” Robb said the team hasn’t forgotten about the licking it received on opening day 2010. “We need to return the favor. There’s no excuses now,” Robb said. “I think last year we were embarrassed. We had a huge crowd, and they came out and stuck it to us. We need to go put a big one on them in front of their fans to show them that we mean business.”

The incidents have inspired City fans to come up with a catchy little jingle. “Oooooh Balotelli, he is a striker, he’s good at darts, an allergy to grass, but when he plays he’s $#%@ class, he drives around Moss Side with a wallet full of cash.” But Super Mario can’t go more than a few months without fresh controversy. While on national team duty with Italy in a game he did not start in against the Faroe Islands this week, Balotelli supposedly took an iPad on the bench with him. When confronted he clarified that he did not take it to the bench, but it simply was with him while warming up on the sidelines. Can you really blame Mario though? Who wants to watch a boring soccer game when you could be playing “Angry Birds” instead?
