Marking 40 Years of Broadcasting By Heather Heins, Contributing Writer

Forty short years ago WIN-89 started as a small college radio station in Auburn, New York. Today, it has grown to be a 3,000-watt station that runs through Auburn and neighboring towns, with a translator in Fulton, and now it can reach millions of people over the Internet. It’s surprising what 40 years can do. October 31, 2011 is when the station officially hit the BIG 4-0; and of course, something this big needed to be celebrated. CCC students Michael Westmiller, Jacob Squires On November 1, 2011 the Radio and Television Guild and Telcom Assistant Shaun Secaur watch and along with Steve Keeler, record the 40th Anniversary celebrations. FOR Doug Brill, Jeff Szczesniak, MORE PICTURES FROM THE PARTY SEE PAGE 4. and Cayuga Community College organized a fun-filled day to celebrate, show off, and earn some money for WIN-89. From 10:30 AM until 12:30 PM the Telcom Department worked hard selling pizza, cupcakes, cake (that Cayuga’s own Doug The staff of Cayuga Community College’s student Brill and his radio station WDWN FM 89.1 celebrates 40 years of wife, Cathy, made for the broadcasting November 1st.

To finish the “smashingly successful day” CCC student as Doug Brill mentioned, two Tess Eller shows student advisors off the cake she Tess Eller and Lauren Maltese helped bake for the party. made a cake shaped like a boom box to share with all those who helped pull the festivities off. At this after party Tess Eller, a student advisor of WIN-89 said “the day was a delectable experience: with cupcakes, pizza, and shirts, how could you go wrong?” And others seemed to feel the same way. Nate Robinson, a CCC student and disc jockey on WIN-89 was very excited after the celebration saying “It was a success, the station earned money and it was a lot of fun!” Doug Brill was pleased with the way things turned out “It was smashingly successful, between the raffles, pizza, cake and cupcakes that students and staff baked, DJ’s, musical performances, and all the student, staff, and alumni involvement the day couldn’t have gone better!” And at the very end Brill mentioned down the road there are more birthday celebrations to be had with WIN-89.

Dangerous Pick-ups in the Auburn Campus Parking Lot So like most students, I have a break during the day between my classes and sometimes the mood just strikes to get off campus for a while. So today it was nice out and I took advantage of the situation. Upon returning to the college this afternoon I noticed a little more congestion in the parking lot than usual. Then it hit me, or should I say I nearly hit them. A group of girls from the junior high school next door came running across the driveway, in front of cars to be picked up by a mom blocking traffic into the front parking lot. No signals, no hazard lights, just parked smack in the middle of the entrance of the front parking lot. the girls ran to the car and got in and off they went. I understand that there are parents who don’t want their children riding the public school buses or walking, but the least parents could do is pick their

child up in the parking lot of the school that they actually are attending. The college parking lot is hard enough to navigate at times as it is with the number of students and faculty coming and going. We shouldn’t have to worry about the added stress of kids from next door running in front of our vehicles to top it all off. As far as I know, there is a designated area at the junior high school to pick the children up, as well as crossing guards donning their neon green safety vests and wielding stop signs. If you’re in that much of a hurry, pick your child up across the street. I’m sure the nice woman with the stop sign (who is giving up her afternoon to be there in all the elements) will ensure that your son or daughter makes it safely across the street to you. -Christina Lupien CCC student

Cayuga CC student Rachel Hartman wins NYS-ASWA Accounting Scholarship By Jamie Blumrick, Editor-in-chief

Savonne Crews (center, bubblebee) assists students from the Booker T. Washington Community Center on some Halloween crafts Oct. 27 during a party at Cayuga Community College in Auburn.

CCC Students Celebrate Halloween with Students from Community Center By Jamie Blumrick, Editor-in-chief The Cayuga Community College Criminal Justice Club hosted a Halloween costume party for 20 children from the Booker T. Washington Community Center in Auburn on October 27, 2011. There Criminal Justice Club members welcomed mostly second and third graders with Halloween-themed decorations and activities, including the famous mummy-wrapping contest. Children enjoyed coloring, doing arts and crafts, and were also treated to cider and donuts during the party. “I think the children really enjoyed it,” said Criminal Justice Professor and Club Advisor Teri Misiaszek. “I think the college students enjoyed it as well.” The Cayuga Criminal Justice students connected classroom discussions about delinquency prevention programs and school budget cuts to children in their own community and a chance to make a difference while at the party. “The Criminal Justice students decided to work on this project not only as an extension of their current Criminal Justice courses and for community outreach, but also to provide positive role models of all economic, race, age, and gender backgrounds,” Misiaszek said. “Our club members represent a broad range of ethnic and social

backgrounds, and it is important for children to see that no matter who you are, you can be a successful college student and, if you choose, a criminal justice professional.” Organizers expect to host a similar party again next year, and find other ways throughout the year to bring these students to the College campus since the event was such a success! “We are currently planning a ‘Forensic Investigation’ project, which will be a great way to introduce kids to criminal justice while teaching them something about science as well,” said Savonne Crews, VISTA volunteer and coordinator for community outreach at Cayuga who helped organize the Halloween party with Criminal Justice Club members. The event was part of the College’s larger partnership with the community center. As of last year, the College recruits Cayuga students to volunteer as mentors for the young people in the after-school program. “The Halloween party was one way among many through which the College can demonstrate how it is a useful resource to the center and the community,” Crews said. “This is what we’re working towards, creating a partnership and establishing sustainability.”

The American Society of Women Accountants (ASWA) awarded Cayuga Community College student Rachel Hartman ’12 of Seneca Falls, N.Y., a $1,000 scholarship during its annual Student Night dinner on October 18 at the Spaghetti Warehouse in Syracuse. Hartman currently maintains a 3.7 average in her accounting major, and expects to transfer into a four-year SUNY college after she graduates in May 2012. In her near future she hopes to pursue a career as an accountant and use such skills to help community organizations, that she feels often have difficulties finding someone to keep their books. “Girl Scout troops need leaders who can manage their funds, and my local church might appreciate a volunteer to help keep the funds of its youth groups organized,” Hartman said. She said she was ecstatic to learn that she had won this scholarship in saying “This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies, instead of worrying about working enough hours to cover my tuition and other bills next semester, I am excited to network with a wonderful group of strong, knowledgeable

women. And I want to send a big thanks to Professor Dawn MatijasCzolowski for all she does to help her students grow as people and achieve their goals!” Hartman now intends to submit her application for consideration for the ASWA National Scholarship. Hartman graduated from L.V. Berkner High School in Richardson, Texas, and was a member of the National Honor Society. She holds an associate’s degree in liberal arts from Richland College, and is a member of the Dallas County Community College District in Richardson, Texas. There students had the opportunity to speak with certified public accountants about their education, career paths, resume-writing, interviewing for jobs, and a range of other issues. “I am so excited for Rachel,” Matijas-Czolowski said. “She deserves this recognition and support to continue her education.” The mission of the ASWA is to enable women in all accounting and related fields to achieve their full personal, professional, and economic potential and to contribute to the future development of their profession.

CCC Board of Trustees Approves First Bids in Fulton Campus Expansion Project By Jamie Blumrick, Editor-in-chief Recent updates on the expansion of the Fulton Campus is as of October 26, the Cayuga Community College Board of Trustees unanimously approved the bids for the demolition and structural steel contracts for the Fulton Campus expansion in the former P&C Building in the River Glen Plaza in Fulton. The College intends to move the Fulton Campus from its current 50,000-square-foot space in the Fulton Commons on West Broadway Street/ Route 3 into the larger River Glen space. The current architectural drawings increase the campus size to approximately 82,150 square feet, which includes a 31,000 square-foot second floor. The plans also expand the learning commons, a central hub that brings together the Library, computers, academic success resources, and flexible work spaces for students from 8,000 square feet to 12,000 square feet; increases the number of classrooms from 21 to 34; and doubles the amount of the space for full-time faculty offices. When making this decision the college received a total of 11 bids with supporting documents, post-bid documents, and contractor’s qualifications, and awarded the contracts to the following companies: Structural steel work for the amount of $475,040 to Rochester Rigging &


Erectors Inc. of Bloomfield, N.Y. and demolition work for the amount of $214,500 to PAC Associates of Oswego, N.Y. Demolition is expected to begin

at the vacant former grocery store in early November. The Cayuga County Legislature approved the $990,000 purchase of the building in March, and in the following month they also approved the $495,000 purchase of 45 acres of undeveloped land that is adjacent to the River Glen Plaza. The state is expected to reimburse the county for 50 percent of the costs of both purchases while the college hopes to have construction on the new space finished by early summer of 2012, ready for classes in the fall 2012 semester. The College will maintain its lease at the Fulton Commons site for at least the next five years, and will provide the space needed for the College to expand its workforce development and community education programming in the region.

Marketing Manager Shares Experiences With CCC Business Students By Amy Valente, Business Instructor “Work Your Plan and Plan Your Work.” This was a tip from Margaret Wilcoxen, a Marketing Manager who visited three business and management classes on October 17. Margaret has worked in a variety of organizations including Kodak, Heidelberg, True North and RailComm. She came into our classes to share her knowledge about what it takes to be a manager in the marketing profession. Margaret discussed the differences between strategic marketing involving market research and customer surveys, and tactical marketing execution, such as development of brochures and advertising materials. The important thing is to put yourself in your customer’s shoes and understand what benefit your product or service fulfills. For example, Margaret revised the brochures at Railcomm to be more customerfocused, discussing the benefits of the product versus the technical details which were originally in the brochure. Margaret spoke about the importance of working in crossfunctional teams to meet corporate goals. One of the challenges is that managers don’t always directly manage those people working on a project. Many companies use a matrix organizational structure, so

m a r ke t i n g managers need to learn how to work effectively in this type of structure a n d motivate e m p l oye e s on their t e a m . How do m a r ke t i n g managers do this? One approach is to get an a g re e m e n t from the employee’s manager on how much time is devoted to your project. Communication is always key! As marketing professionals, it’s important to create a portfolio of work samples that you have accomplished. You can start putting this together in college. Even accomplished professionals like Margaret don’t always know what they want to do when they graduate from college. It’s perfectly acceptable to try out various jobs to see what you like. We thank Margaret for coming into our classes!

Discover Auburn Public What We Do When We’re Theater Downtown Not Studying...

By Ryan Elsenbeck, Contributing Writer Five years ago, Auburn Public Theatre opened its doors to Auburn. APT has introduced Auburn to productions, cinemas, and other events that have brought the community together through the arts. The Auburn Public Theatre is located on 8 Exchange Street, tucked away behind the bustle of Genesee Street in Auburn. The theatre has been a place for entertainment as well as a place for local talent to get together and perform for audiences. On Tuesday nights from 7:00-10:00, Tuesday Night Music takes place to showcase Auburn’s local musical artists. Anyone can sign up on Tuesday nights simply by showing up and having something to perform. Carey Eidel has been with Auburn Public Theatre since the very beginning when the theatre was just a building for sale across from Daddabbo’s pizza. Eidel, along with Brian Anderson, Angela Daddabbo, and Janie MicGlire turned the worn-out building into the theatre that it is today. “The Auburn Public Theatre has been connecting people since we first opened our doors” says Carey Eidel. He says he has been helping out with Tuesday Night Music and


says it was one of the first events that APT held and started out as just a bunch of folding chairs. Now participants sit in a comfortable room with nice tables and dimly-lit candles watching performances on a stage in the corner with professional quality lighting and sound. It’s easy to see that this event has come a long way. Most of the performers have been regulars for the months or years. No matter who shows up to perform its guaranteed to be a relaxing and enlightening social event for all ages. Tuesday nights have proven an effective way to get a community together in a way that seldom happens. Every one in the room seems to be comfortable enough to make new friends and enjoy the company of old friends. Tuesday Night Music requires a $2 minimum donation to keep the operation running. Refreshments are served at a concession stand. No matter who you are, Tuesday Night Music is a great way to get out on a weeknight and enjoy a night of music, conversation, and relaxation. For more information on the Auburn Public Theatre, visit their website or simple stop by and say hello.

SPARTAN SPORTS Basketball Spartans Drop Home Opener By D.J. DuVall, Sports Editor

The Fall Classic Lives up to its Name By D.J. DuVall, Sports Editor The Major League Baseball season came to an end last week with one of the most exciting finishes the game has ever seen. The World Series saw the Texas Rangers, coming off a heartbreaking season where they lost the 2010 Series to the San Francisco Giants. The team used the disappointment as fuel, and pushed themselves to repeat as American League Champions. They did just that, by winning their division, and beating both the Tampa Bay Rays, and Detroit Tigers on their way to the World Series. Their Opponent would be the St. Louis Cardinals, who backed into the playoffs on the last day of the regular season, ending a historic September comeback. The Cards were down 10 ½ games to the Atlanta Braves in late August. A deficit that looked bleak at best if the Cardinals wanted to make the last playoff spot. They went on to beat the odds, getting hot just as the Braves went into a late season slump. They Clinched the Wild Card on the last day of the season to face the heavily favored Philadelphia Phillies in a best of five series. The Cards took the series to game five where they out-dueled the Phills in a 1-0 victory. Next came the division rival Milwaukee Brewers. Once again St. Louis played underdog, and defeated the Brew Crew in six games to move on to the World Series. The Cardinals came out Strong with a 3-2 win in game 1, but the Rangers took game two, to tie the series up as it headed down to Texas for three games. The Cards came ready to play, and pounded the Rangers in a 16-7 spanking. All-Star first Baseman Albert Pujols made history, becoming just the third player in the 107 year history of the World Series to hit three home runs in one game. He joined the likes of Reggie Jackson, and Babe Ruth who did it twice. Game Four and Five saw 4-0, and 4-2 victories for the Rangers who took a commanding 3-2 series lead back up to St. Louis, needing just one win to end a year of regrets, and bring their franchise its first World Series championship in almost 40 years of existence. Game six started with the hype of any other World Series game,

but went on to become an instant classic, and one of the greatest games in Series history. The Rangers held a two run lead in the bottom of the ninth, when third baseman David Freese stepped to the plate with two men on base, and two outs. He fell behind quickly with a 1-2 count, just one strike away from the game being over, and Texas becoming the 2011 World Series champs. Instead Freeze sent a blast into right field, past sprawling Victor Cruz. The hit landed Freeze at third base, driving in two runs, and tying the game. The top of the 10th rolled around and Texas center fielder Josh Hamilton sent a two run shot into the bleachers, giving the Rangers another two run lead at 9-7. The home run silenced the St. Louis crowd, as they feared their dream season may finally be over. Somehow in the bottom of the 10th, the comeback king Cardinals found a way to get back in it again, down to their last strike for the second consecutive inning, the team dug deep, and managed to get two runs across, again knotting things up at 9. Freeze got another at bat in the bottom of the 11th, and with the score still tied; he ended historical game six with a walk off homer, sending the series to a deciding game 7 in St. Louis. The momentum had shifted and you could see the looks of anger, and disappointment on the faces of the Rangers. No matter what they seemed to do, the pesky Cards always found a way to get back in it. St. Louis rode the momentum of game six back into their stadium, and with Chris Carpenter on the mound, suddenly Texas became the underdogs. They got to him early with two runs in the 1st, but that was all she wrote for the 2011 Rangers. The Cardinals quickly tied the game, and then added four runs in the 6-2 rout of Texas. It was the Cardinals 11th World Series championship, and their first since 2006. David Freese was awarded MVP honors after his Game six heroics, and the Rangers were forced to watch the celebrating for a second consecutive year. The Cards finished off their Cinderella season in fitting form, reminding us all to never, ever give up.

Both the Men and Women’s Basketball teams kicked off the season last Tuesday, against Fulton-Montgomery CC. Unfortunately, both squads failed to start the season with a win, dropping their home openers back to back. First the Lady Spartans lost 66-40, and then the Men came out on the short end of an 8875 defeat. The Men will look to rebound with tournaments in both of the next two weekends. First they will head to Boston for the Roxbury CC tournament. The following weekend they will take part in the TC3 Classic tournament, and face Niagara CC on Saturday, with another game on Sunday.

Their next home game is Saturday, November 19th against Clinton CC. The Women will also travel to Boston, but then have a home game Tuesday, November 8th against Alfred State College. Then they too will take part in the TC3 tournament the weekend of the 12th, and 13th.

Be Prepared to Buy Your Own 3-D Glasses By Alec Rider, Staff Writer

Since the advent of the modern 3D movie paying customers have paid a hefty amount to see just one movie that is brought to you in just one extra dimension. As you pay for your ticket you’re given a set of black glasses that when put on your face brings you into a whole different sense of reality. But Sony has announced that in May of 2012 it will no longer be footing the bill for the glasses, much to the dismay of movie theaters around the country. Sony says that the $5-10 million bill is just too much for them to handle every time a new blockbuster comes out. This may be just the beginning of a paradigm shift in the movie industry. Leaving theaters around the country wondering how they’re going to show 3D movies in the future. Theater owners are pretty livid because of the fact that they shelled out the money to convert their movie screens to 3D so the studios could actually make the movies not too long ago. Now Sony wants those theaters to pay for the whole showing experience of their movie. If Sony isn’t careful than theater owners may remind Sony how their movies get shown to the public in the first place. The glasses are not paid for upfront; they’re manufactured and are paid for after the fact, depending on how many glasses were actually used. Glasses for non-blockbusters cost between $1.5-2 million, or about 50 cents of the average theater ticket. Sony as well as other studios want to move towards a business model that requires moviegoers to purchase the glasses at the theater instead of a 3D surcharge attached

to their ticket; a system like this is already in place in Europe and Australia. The majority of 3D glasses are provided by RealD, which controls the majority of the 3D market in the U.S. through its 3D projection systems. Other 3D systems like Dolby’s employ a model where the theater owns the glasses, which are returned, cleaned and reused following a screening. RealD theaters often have recycling containers for the glasses outside the theater, but more often than not moviegoers keep the glasses, meaning new glasses are still needed creating a heftier cost. Several years ago, when digital 3D was first emerging, it wasn’t clear who would pay for the glasses. In an effort to encourage movie theaters to convert their screens to the emerging format, Disney was the first to tell theaters it would cover the cost. Soon, other studios started following suit, but Sony and other studios are starting to make it abundantly clear that this was not meant to be indefinite. 20th Century Fox tried to stop paying for the 3D glasses, but was met with stiff resistance from exhibitors. It seems as if the regular moviegoers aren’t the only ones being hit by the economy. It looks as if the movie studios are as well. With the recent backlash that patrons gave Netflix when they tried to make changes are movie studios making the right decision? With the risk that this ploy may create the largest exodus from the movie theater since the advent of television, hopefully the studios and the theaters come to an agreement soon.

The NBA is a No Go Well I had such a great week that I struggled to find something to rant about. My beloved Buffalo Bills had a decisive 23-0 victory over the Washington Redskins. The New England Patriots, and Dallas Cowboys, who I absolutely despise, both lost as well. With my Bills back on top of the AFC East, I found it hard to complain about much of anything, so I decided one thing in the news that’s bothering me is the NBA lockout. As November rolls on, the NBA has already missed almost a month of their season, and everyday ESPN airs repeated reports about the lack of a deal getting done. This annoys me for a number of reasons. First of all, since when did players get so much power, they sign a contract making millions, yet they are never happy. Second, why can they not get a deal done? What can they possibly be arguing about in all these meetings? Shouldn’t the owners decide how much revenue the players get, and if they don’t like it then don’t play the game. You’re being paid millions to play a game in front of thousands of fans who make in a year what you pay for a fine, after tweeting something you shouldn’t have. Now you’re taking that game away from the fans because you’re unhappy with your multimillion dollar contracts. On the other hand, what is wrong with these owners, do they not realize that their million dollar investments aren’t making them a dime sitting home on the couch. You’d think they would get a deal done before a billion dollar arena sits empty another day. Instead the arguing continues, and each day millions of dollars are lost as the NBA sits idle. Must be tough to have it so rough, I say just cancel the season already, or play basketball. It’s pretty simple, I just don’t want to hear about it another day.
