Latinos voice their opinions for upcoming elections University Local Hispanics gather with White House officials to try and find a solution to immigration issues.
Dining focuses on students
Mark Herring & Sruthi Mohan Features Editor &Staff Writer
Local civic activists, both legal and illegal, gathered together with Obama administration officials on Saturday to discuss the issues regarding illegal immigration. The White House organized the summit in efforts to improve education for the Latino community. However, the discussion took a turn towards health care and immigration issues, rather than figuring out ways to make minor changes to the educational success of legal Latino children. After a few short introductions for the White House officials, the floor was given to community activists to pitch political reforms like developing better cancer treatment programs for Latinos and finding the appropriate services for illegal families who are also dealing with children with autism. However, an overwhelming number of issues all stemmed from immigration. Sergio Fonseca and Irvane de Diaz were two bold men who pitched their issues. They wore bright orange Tshirts with the statement, “Undocumented and Unafraid” emblazoned across their chests. They are members of a new non-profit organization made up of several illegal immigrants and their benefactors who are encouraging the thousands of undocumented

Dining halls constantly try to spice up their menus with a wide variety of tasty meals. Some dining halls are known for specialty meals, such as the omelets at Case. The dining hall reserved primarily for athletes is renowned for having “better food,” but not every student agrees. “I mean, the omelets are OK,” Christopher Grenier, freshman in engineering, said. “I really wish the eggs were real. I get them if the line isn’t too long, but it’s definitely not worth the wait.” Still, Grenier, who is not an athlete and only gets to eat at Case twice a day, prefers it. He still appreciates the variety of the other two dining halls. University Dining spends a great deal of time configuring a menu students on campus will enjoy. “The menus for the dining halls are seasonal,” Jennifer Gilmore, the marketing and communications manger for Campus Enterprises, said. “Meals are heavier for the winter,

Technology weighs in on modern communication Event brought together speakers from across the country. Madison McLawhorn Staff Writer
A conference took place in Park Shops from Friday to Sunday that featured expert speakers in communications from around the country, as well as the world. The Local and Mobile Conference 2012 served as the third annual research symposium for the program of Communication, Rhetoric and Digital Media at N.C. State. It also marked the third joint international conference of the Pan-American Mobilities Network and the Cosmobilities Network. Adriana de Souza e Silva, an associate professor at the department of communication, was chair of the conference. Silva is also the interim associate director of the CRDM program and affiliated faculty at the Digital Games Research Center. While the head of the conference was a local, many of those involved came to Raleigh from across the globe. Keynote speakers included Rich Ling, professor at the IT University of Copenhagen and Telenor’s Research Institute in Norway, Paul Dourish from Irvine, Ca. and Teri Reub from Buffalo, N.Y. The three days consisted of 21 panel discussions led and

like chicken and dumplings, but they’ll get lighter for the spring,” Gilmore said. Menus are planned at the beginning of every year based on four-week rotation menus. For each meal, University Dining tries to balance out one hot entree with a vegan or vegetarian entree. They also include specialty bars to add more selection. University Dining relies on student feedback to make sure the menus are up to par. Three times a year, a select group of 30 students critique one of the four-week rotational menus. They are asked to mark what they liked and disliked. “The best feedback is walking around the dining halls and asking students if they are enjoying their meals,” Randy Lake, director of University Dining, said. Taking into account feedback from the students, the cost of

discussion on immigration and marginalization of the Hispanic community on Thursday. Allan Parnell, vice president of Cedar Grove Institute for Sustainable Communities in Mebane, cited a specific case where districts of city limits in communities across the U.S., and Southern Pines as a local example, expand around many Latino neighborhoods, often denying them of services the cities provide. “You bring into town who you want to bring in, and they’re not Latinos for many,” Parnell said. According to Hannah Gill, director of UNC-Chapel Hill’s Latino Migration Project, politicians are now using a tactic called self-deportation, in which undocumented immigrants leave a particular community because basic daily activities are too difficult to do as an illegal immigrant. Gill said Arizona’s controversial SB 1070 law that “has made racial profiling legal” and the state’s lower rates of immigration exemplify this trend. Mitt Romney has cited this as a strong strategy to discourage immigration. “People just decide to pick up

portunity to work the conference. Caroline Funkhouser, junior in communications, had the position of tech support in one of the panel rooms. As she helped presenters with microphones and PowerPoint presentations, she observed several of the speakers present. One of these presentations
was that of Armond Towns from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. “[Towns] talked about the L.A. gang tours, which are tours you can pay to take through the ghetto of L.A. led by real gangsters, and how these tours affect the mobility of the black and Latino popula-
tions living in these communities,” Funkhouser said. “He spoke about how these tours are interpreted differently by different people. This one was probably my favorite.” Another talk was N.C. State’s Ryan McGrady’s “Wikipedia Zero and the Encyclopedic Ideal.” “[McGrady dealt with] proliferation of Wikipedia in our society and how Wikipedia is attempting to become a force to gather all human knowledge for our benefit,” Funkhouser said. Communications senior Khang Ngo also worked the conference. “Being at the conference and hearing the panel, as well as getting to know the presenters, gave me an inside look at what our professors actually do outside of teaching,” Ngo said. “They try to analyze and advance current topics on a scholarly level and redefine the old.” Ngo enjoyed the event because he could relate. “It is exactly like research papers that we do except on a more in depth level, and you get catering.” The weekend conference culminated in a presentation on Locative Media as Generative Displacement by keynote speaker Teri Rueb from the University at Buffalo, followed by closing remarks from conference chair Adriana de Souza e Silva.

We are not an apathetic generation N
N.C. State won a presidential award for the amount of community service its students participates in. Our University integrates the importance of leadership in one’s community in various aspects of students’ lives.
We are seen as the apathetic generation because of our lack of political activism; however, this is far from the truth. We approach community issues with action as opposed to representation.
Careful with your language In response to Jon Lewis’ column,“Could it be any worse?” I can’t help but feel Mr. Lewis chose an apt title for his March 1 editorial “Could it be any worse?” Over the course of his piece, he happily highlights every flaw in modern political discourse. Rather than choosing to address the issues for which Mr. Santorum stands, he chose instead to ridicule not only the candidate, but those who support and agree with him. It isn’t wrong for Mr. Lewis to hold an opinion—far from it. It is impressive to hold an opinion to the extent where one would be willing to put one’s name on a piece expressing that opinion in this way. Indeed, it is not his opinion I am faulting. Rather, it is the way he chooses to express it. He uses caustic language to imply the stupidity of not only Santorum, but all social conservatives. He dismisses the entire opposing view as “backward” and states that “nobody could actually believe what he’s said.” As I said, it is perfectly acceptable to hold an opinion and to express it. However, what is the benefit in blatantly insulting one’s audience? How is it any way beneficial to Mr. Lewis or his position to dismiss an entire section of American thought based on one man? I think it may be in Mr. Lewis’ best interests to proofread his articles and consider them from an opposing viewpoint rather than assuming everyone understands a reason in his discourse. Janneke Parrish junior, philosophy
A column misinterpreted In response to Chelsey Francis’ column, “Cut the crap talk.” At first when I read this column, I had the same impression as all students. How could you not stand up with us? But Chelsey is absolutely right when it comes down to the end of the column. Most people believe she is saying the game was called fair and we shouldn’t be saying those things. But that’s not at all what she is trying to say. She is trying to say the things N.C. State students are saying about the game and refs, UNC players and coaches is going a little bit too far. When it comes down to saying “I’m going to kill those refs,” that’s way too far! I’ll admit, I’ve said some things that were mean, but nothing to that extent. Students care about the image of our school sportswise and player-wise, but when it comes down to damaging comments, students don’t seem to care what they personally look like and how they are portraying
.C. State was awarded the President’s Award in the 2012 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll last week for its attempts to incorporate community service into student’s learning. Being one of only five universities in the nation to win this award speaks volumes as to the amount of dedication our University has toward public service. Our students could be defined by this type of hands-on experience to make an impact in the community rather than the typical apathetic, microwave generation we are portrayed as. N.C. State alone has ongoing service events for students
to get involved in. The Center for Student Leadership, Ethics and Public Service is devoted to this type of involvement, giving opportunities to affect communities on a national and global scale, as well as our own society here in Raleigh. Various events not only allow students to demonstrate their service-orientated outlook, but also create a chance to demonstrate their political activism. War on Terror protests, GLBT activism and the Occupy movements are examples of our generation attempting to physically change and shape our society. However, we are
continually seen as a generation marked by indifference. Generations before us were politically involved by voting in attempts to elect a representative who could make a difference. Our generation is not so fortunate to have a valid candidate—of any kind—to rally behind. Because of this, we have developed a system for acting on, rather than talking about, what to change. Our hours of community service outweigh those of the previous generations combined. We identify a problem and move toward the solu-
tion faster and more efficiently than our current leaders. Our branding of apathy is not only invalid but uncalled for because of this determination to make a change. We should continue to put forth the efforts in public service and lead younger generations to follow our example. The current state of our society is asking for a change. We are getting tired of the bureaucratic solutions to our problems— luckily the paradigm is shifting in our favor. We should continue to disprove this view of our “lethargic” generation and continue to make an impact in the communities we interact with.

Danielle Neujahr sophomore, fisheries and wildlife science
Research and science is very important to me. The articles in Technician really catch my eye whenever they tell a story about students and their accomplishments alongside their professors. A lot of the stories cover and highlight achievement while showing just how dynamic N.C. State students are in research and science. I am writing you to discuss the way you incorporate science into Technician articles. The articles written are important, as they reflect how the institution feels about research and science. N.C. State is a university focusing on finding new information. Technician does an awesome job of highlighting the moments when useful information has been found by students. I would like to applaud your tactics and the ways in which you address the many science projects that students participate in. As a student it is encouraging, after reading your articles, to leave a mark on campus or just to get involved academically. The science articles presented in Technician represent how N.C. State values the students and their work as well as the faculty’s commitment to the academic success of students. This is important as sometimes students may not feel the need to go above and beyond, but recognizing students on a regular basis produces motivation and boosts the confidence of students who get recognized. If I could change anything about the attitude toward science in Technician,I wouldn’t. I believe it truly represents student life and their participation in the sciences. It is a great idea to continue to post similar stories to not only inform the audience but to motivate them as well. Your articles are greatly appreciated.

the school and its students. Rivals make us who we are, but we shouldn’t be uncivilized and downright rude. Just looking back at the comments on her post on the online paper, people were horrible to Chelsey, which in fact proves the point her column was trying to make. We should respect a writer’s opinion and try to understand it from her perspective instead of bashing it like a punching bag. I hear people say UNC is just as bad… well, then why are you sinking to their level?

Open love letter to the team
his is an open love letter to the N.C. State basketball team and coach Gottfried: I love you. I don’t always profess my love for 15 men at once, but when I do, it’s on a public forum. Let me start out by explaining my feelings from the past few years. When I came to N.C. State in Ahmed Amer 2009, basketDeputy ball here was Viewpoint Editor in a real slump. I would pessimistically watch games. “We won’t win this one,” I would say. Of course I wanted us to win, but I hope you understand when I say my spirit was a little low. I was tired of watching a talented team get beaten by UNC and Duke over and over again. I knew we were good; we beat Duke the year they won the national championship, but we were inconsistent without good leadership. Watching the basketball game was like being on a bad date: the first half went really well, but ended with me being blue after getting beat by Duke and UNC. Then came the exciting news that C.J. Leslie, Lorenzo Brown and Ryan Harrow were bringing their talent to N.C. State in the coming season. I was giddy as a schoolgirl… until basketball season started. Again, the immense talent was apparent,
but the leadership just wasn’t there. Fingers were pointed, and then there was a coup that resulted in the sacking of Sidney Lowe. I didn’t know what to expect. It was like a break up —I felt guilty, but I wanted to see new people. Shortly after, Debbie Yow made what turned out to be the best decision anyone has ever made, ever. I’ll be honest, I had never heard of the ‘Gottfather’ prior to his arrival at State, but I was re ad y for cha nge . I gladly welcomed him, excited to see what he cou ld do. He was hope personified. A bronzed god su rrounded by golden light with his hands confidently placed on his hips. He kicked down the doors to the program in a fit of pure manliness, and immediately began rebuilding the foundation of a fallen titan’s house. I lusted after the coming basketball season, even with Harrow’s departure. You didn’t disappoint, gentlemen. It’s been a hell of a trip, and now you’ve fought your way to the Sweet 16. Some of my most memorable moments of the semester were made in R BC Center, passionately shouting in a sweaty sea of red.
“I love you” doesn’t cut it. I want to say things like, “Watching you play works better than popping Viagra,” or, “If N.C. State basketball was a food, it’d be Nutella,” and other things Technician won’t let me publish. I want you all to know I’ll be supporting you while you’re playing in St. Louis Friday. I’ve been wearing my lucky game day Snuggie for all of the tournament games, and I refuse to wash it until you w in it all. I am tremendously proud of the entire team, and so is the rest of Wolfpack Nation. Thank you for giving us reason to say “Wolfpack back.” Also, if you’re reading this, Lorenzo Brown, Facebook won’t let me ask to be your friend because you’re too awesome. Can we fix this?

Vintage21: A church for doubters, seekers and cynics A Raleigh church hopes to spread love and hope through ministry and newage worship. Nikki Stoudt Staff Writer
The moment you walk into Vintage21, you know it’s no ordinary church. Each of the campuses—spaces for services—are located in renovated spaces. Even the offices are set up in the old Raleigh Times printing house on Hargett Street. The original walls, ceilings and minimalist decoration give off the hippest of coffee shop vibes. And that’s the way the staff likes it. Tyler Jones, founder and lead pastor of Vintage21 church, believes in loving where you are and giving back. So in the fall of 2002, he and 40 others started an interdenominational gathering in a loft on Hargett Street. Today, the congregation has blossomed into 1,200 weekly members who meet at one of Vintage21’s three locations. Jones, who lives downtown with his wife, Kimberly, and two daughters, has always had strong ties to the area. Both of his grandparents were members of the N.C. State family. Jones’ grandfather was a food science major while his grandmother became a professor of English and etiquette. His parents were born in Raleigh and also attended N.C. State. Jones went on to attend UNC-Chapel Hill in the mid-1990s and never
left the area. “Having that strong connection to the Triangle fueled our decision to settle down and build a church here,” Jones said. “We felt like we were giving back in a way.” In addition to the fact that all staff members at Vintage21 have Twitter accounts—new territory for the religious leader community—Jones feels there are a few other key aspects that make Vintage21 unique. “[Our] congregation is a relatively young one,” Jones said. “We have a good number of college students from Duke, N.C. State, Meredith and Chapel Hill. We’ve also got a lot of young families, especially as downtown Raleigh continues to change.” This may contribute to the student-heavy congregation of Vintage21. Top-notch graphic designers, who are also members of the church, have developed lights, sounds and presentations to keep the congregation engaged and maintain the hype of the experience. Like Vintage21, which started with what Jones describes as “die-hard” local people, Raleigh has transformed and grown over the past few years. Jones said Vintage21 seeks to reach out to an ever-growing student population that continues to increase in diversity. Jones and his staff can’t imagine being anywhere else. “There is a whole revamp going on downtown,” Jones said. “Raleigh is on an uptick. Bands are returning, art is returning.
Tyler Jones is the lead pastor and founder of Vintage21. After graduating from UNC Chapel Hill, Jones moved to the Raleigh area and has been involved with various faith groups around State’s campus for 15 years now.
To see all that—it’s a pretty amazing place to be.” While ministry and worship is a vital part of any church, Vintage21 focuses more on utilizing one’s gifts and spreading love to one another than wasting those talents or being disengaged. “We want to love the city we live in,” Jones said. “The people in our church are really gifted people and we do everything
we can to empower them and train them to love the city, too. It’s extremely important to us that we lift up and encourage as many and as much as possible.” ‘Reclaim,’ an organization established by Vintage21, seeks to assist the 135 million American orphans by providing recreational and educational programs as well as day-today needs. ‘Corral,’ another ministry, is a rescue for young
girls who have been abused by gangs. The members of this organization aid the girls in getting educated, getting out of gang life and getting emotional and spiritual help. “Through these groups, we really hope to empower everyone we come in contact with,” Jones said. The most recognized aspect of Vintage21 is the willingness to listen. In a world of ‘Brick-
yard preachers,’ an open ear can be difficult to find. “We want to be the place where doubters and cynics can come and be enthusiastically against us or for us,” Jones said. “There is no manipulation or guilt. We welcome it, actually. We want to be the place where it’s okay to disagree and discuss.”
Competing for the title of king of the forest N.C. State hosts the top-tier timbersports competition. Katie Sanders Senior Staff Writer
Many may know ESPN for Sports Center, but its second longest running show on is the STIHL Timbersports, the top-tier competition for lumberjacks across the world. Hundreds apply each year, and only the top 40 competitors are accepted to compete for the championship title. N.C. State hosted the southern regional competition this year, and had several students and alumni competing.
Six categories comprise the event: the springboard chop, the stock saw, the standing block, the single buck, the underhand and the hot saw. The most amusing for spectators to watch is probably the springboard chop event, which involves climbing up trees and cutting them down. “What it used to be is a way to get around knots and trees and old broken timber… the old way to chop off wood at the top of the tree was to put these planks of wood in the tree,” Brad Sorgen, the producer of the STIHL Timbersports series, said. The athletes chop small holes

into the sides of trees and then jam in planks called springboards, which they use to climb up at least nine feet. There they race to chop off the 12-inch top of the tree. “It’s entertaining and scary— if you don’t have your boards set into the tree very well you have the possibility of falling and getting injured,” Sorgen said. “And you’re not only falling nine feet, but you have planks of wood in the way and your axe in your hand.” Logan Scarborough, an N.C. State alum and forestry consultant, admitted that it was a bit dangerous—he unfortunately fell off a board during the competition—but that doesn’t slow him down.

handed pitcher Carlos Rodon who continued his dominance on the mound. The young southpaw threw eight innings, gave up four hits and allowed only one earned run while striking out nine. What was most impressive about Rodon’s outing was his ability to remain composed in a high-pressure first inning. After giving up two runs and two more Wake base runners on with no outs, he sprung the Pack out of the jam with his heat consistently

This team is like a brotherhood and we all have one goal: to win.” Rodon showed his durability, throwing 125 pitches and looking strong through the eighth inning when Coach Elliott Avent decided to relieve him. “He wanted to finish, he could have finished,” Avent

who took advantage of the lenience and closed the scoring with a powerful one-handed dunk with 13.1 seconds left. The Pack would close out the competition with a 14-point victory leading up to Sunday’s victorious battle versus Georgetown.

said. “He was so mad at me in the ninth inning when I took him out.” Seniors Andrew Ciencin and Ryan Mathews also homered in the sixth inning (their fourth and third on the season, respectively) to help solidify the win, causing Doak Field to sound like Carter-Finley or the PNC Arena with their fervent cheers of “Wolf! Pack!” Another familiar storyline from Saturday’s game was that of the eminent talent of freshman Trae Turner. In the bottom of the third, Turner jacked the first home run of his college career to complement his two

The next highest total in the conference is eight. “It feels good to be playing so well, but everyone is contributing,” Turner said. “If one person doesn’t step up this game, another person steps it up.

with great focus,” Burke said. “I guess I let my tiredness get the best of me. That may have affected me in the second half, but either way I felt like they had better defense on me. It was hard for me to get rebounds.” Freeman exploded after her dismal first half. She scored 22 of her 26 points in the second half to go along with 4 second-half steals, bringing her game total to 6.

State was not able create a much-needed turnover and was forced to send Anna Freeman to the line. Freeman went two for two and put the game out of reach for the Pack. “As a coach, I don’t think I’ve ever gone into a game with a season ending speech in mind,” Harper said. “[It was] really hard in the locker room to talk to our kids after the game and look at the seniors. It’s not how we wanted our season to end. We had hopes of playing a little more basketball... it just wasn’t meant to be today.”
leadership of this ball club has been phenomenal,” Coach Elliott Avent said. “We have a lot of talent, a lot of young guys in the lineup everyday and their talent and hunger helps them follow our leaders.” Avent also praised the home fans that showed up. “It was an unbelievable crowd — that helps so much. When you see the hill filled, you feel good about your chances every time,” Avent said. Next, the Wolfpack takes on East Carolina University Tuesday in Greenville at 6 p.m.
