Carroll exploring possibilities to expand campus Liz Ramus & Matt Hoffman Editorial Staff

Carroll University is currently leasing a building on Davidson Rd. to explore the possibility of purchasing the property to house health science graduate programs and the Center for Leadership Excellence. The possible acquisition would allow for expansion of Carroll’s graduate programs. The Physical Therapy doctorate program, the Physician Assistant master’s program, and the master’s in Software Engineering could be housed at the new facility. Vice President of Finance Ron Lostetter said, “The undergraduate focus will remain [at the main campus].” Provost Dr. Joanne Passaro echoed his sentiments. “Relocating undergraduate programs to this facility is already ruled out; however, that will not stop the opportunity for scheduling undergraduate courses at the facility.” Passaro said graduate education courses and undergraduate nursing clinicals are also candidates for relocation. The building is also a possible location for the Center for Leadership Excellence, due to its prime location near Highway I-94. The building’s potential for open meeting rooms, closed offices, and an on-site dining area all make it ideal for job training. According to Lostetter, the recent recession will likely create a growing demand for graduate

programs. “There’s a vast number of people out there that are going to need to retool,” he said. “Existing [programs] could get bigger and we could add some new ones.” Carroll is looking to utitlize the market for non-traditional students and to increase local business partnerships. “We want to emerge from the [economic] downturn stronger than when

we went in. That’s our job; longterm stewardship of Carroll,” said Passaro. There are several obstacles that must cleared before Carroll would be able purchase the building. The property is currently zoned for commercial business use. In order to use the facility, Carroll would need the City of Waukesha Planning Commission and Common

Council to approve a zoning modification, changing the property’s status to industrial use. According to Lostetter, the “city has said they support it, [but] no one can guarantee any of this.” Carroll is currently in the process of assembling paperwork to apply for a rezoning.

Election ‘09 (3)

Staff Writer In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. day, Carroll hosted a convocation event featuring civil-rights activist Joanne Bland. The event began with a passionate reading of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech by students Lauren Edwards, Promise Bruce, and Zonzerrias McGowin-Woods. Lazandria Skinner, president of Black Student Union, introduced keynote speaker, Joanne Bland. Bland, a civil-rights activist and co-founder and director of the National Voting Rights Museum and Institute, grew up in then segregated Selma, Alabama where she witnessed events such as “Bloody Sunday” and “Turn Around Tuesday.” She was the youngest person to

be jailed in these demonstrations at eleven-years-old. Bland realized her interest in becoming a feedom fighter when she was a child and saw white children eating ice cream through a parlor window. She saw the children having fun and her grandmother told her that she could do what the white children were doing if they were free. Bland also talked about her participation in the march from Selma to Montgomery and the brutal beatings she witnessed. Her most vivid memory from the event is the sound of the marchers as they were being attacked. “The descriptions of what she has seen were amazing,” junior Anne Marie Vassalotti said. The lecture made Vassolotti think about the

After having no one available to help students seeking career services for a month and a half, Carroll University has filled the Director of Career Services position. Dr. Jen Maney left Carroll for Marquette University at the end of fall semester, leaving students without advice concerning career opportunities and internships. Maney directed Career Services single handedly and since she left, students have been left to discover career opportunities on their own. Associate Director of Library Services Allison Reeves said Maney left “a tremendous hole in student services” and “she [was] the only person in that particular service.” Filling that hole will be Debra Weber, formerly the Assistant Director of Field and Career Services at Beloit College. Weber is familiar with Carroll, having attended here her freshman and sophomore years as an undergraduate. She then transferred to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, where she completed her undergraduate and graduate degrees. Reeves, who was anxious to have the position filled, was pleased with the hire. “I think she’s going to fit in really well,” said Reeves. “She has a great background”. Dean of Humanities Dr. Lelan McLemore said that they had hoped to have the position filled earlier. Students will still be without options until Feb. 23, the earliest date which Weber will begin her new role. The hiring committee included McLemore and Reeves as well as multiple students. McLemore said that students were involved in the hiring process and have attended workshops to meet the applicants. There were over a 100 applicants, which were narrowed down to three finalists who were then interviewed. Weber will have a challenging path ahead of her. Career services was an extremely popular resource under Maney, according to Reeves. With one person meeting the needs of over 3,000 students, some think the position is understaffed. Reeves

Wisconsin judges gear up for April election Luke Bennewitz Staff Writer

Following November’s general election, another political battle continues to rage in the Wisconsin State Judicial Branch. This year, Wisconsin will vote to fill the 7th position in the Wisconsin Supreme Court. The two front runners are incumbent Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson and Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Randy Koschnick. Though State Supreme Court Justices are considered to be “non-partisan,� each party often takes a liking to opposing candidates. This year, Abrahamson is favored by the Democratic Party and Koschnick by the Republican Party. Abrahamson is up for her fourth election and is running her campaign based on her experience and consistency. She said on her official website, “Whatever has changed since my first election in 1979, my commitment to the fierce independence and integrity of

the State Judicial System has not changed.� Koschnick wants to bring a new, firm perspective to the position, saying “We need someone on the Court who will take strict constructionist views when looking at cases. We don’t need someone who’s legislating from the bench.� (www. koschnickforjustice.com) The two previous races for Supreme Court has turned the political tides towards the Republicans. In 2007, Annette Zeigler, affiliated with the Republican Party, defeated candidate Linda Clifford and brought the slightly Democratic Court to a 4 – 3 influence over Republicans. In the 2008 race, Michael Gablemen, affiliated with the Republican Party, defeated the then incumbent Louis Butler switching the power towards the Republicans in a 4 – 3 majority.

Radium contaminates Waukesha taps illnesses such as cancer.� Professor Rebecca Mattano, adjunct lecturer of environmental Science, explained that the “safe� level of radium is about 4.6 picoCuries per liter. Waukesha on average has around 5 to 8 pCi per liter. Waukesha has attempted to decrease the amount of radium in the water by diluting it with radium-free water. Other possible solutions to reduce the level of radium include purchasing some of Lake Michigan’s water from the city of Milwaukee or the development of radium-free wells, which would cost at least $13.5 million. According to Mattano, “The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) estimates about a $5,000 fine per day for not reducing the level of radium in the water.� Waukesha Mayor Larry Nelson said in a Jan. 1 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article that the fine is still under negotiation. The city is likely to pay a one-time fee rather than the accumulating daily fine. Waukesha’s water is said to currently be at the accepted radium level, but the level is likely to go up again in the summer when water is more heavily used.

The tap water in Waukesha contains quantities of radium that well exceed the federal safety standards. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, the level has at times reached twice the accepted amount. This issue in Waukesha has existed for the past eleven years, according to Dr. Joseph Piatt, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Environmental Science. Piatt has worked with professionals on this matter and said that the problem was not an issue until the 1980’s. Health risks from radium consumption have been particularly linked to skin and bone cancer. The toxic chemical consequently affects drinks that use water, especially baby formula. Radium is a naturally occurring problem in underground water sources. Piatt explained that radium comes from decayed uranium. “Radium that is ingested in small quantities over a span of time has not shown to be harmful,� he said, “but if it were ingested in large amounts, it has been known to cause

Carroll adds new director of Instructional Technology Luke Bennewitz

Staff Writer Students and professors may look forward to advancements in educational technology with the help of the newly appointed Director of Instructional Technology, Dr. Terri Johnson. Johnson said, “I assist faculty with their technology needs in the classroom or virtual classroom. Where it works, I hope to bridge student learning and technology in a way that works for faculty”. When it comes to classroom teaching methods, Johnson mentioned that there are several different devices that can help teachers further prepare their students for life after college. “I will assist faculty with learning new technologies, such as TurningPoint, or ‘clickers’,” she said, “and some time will be spent learning more about other or new technologies, like SmartBoards and podcasting, and how to best use these technologies in our classrooms.” Additionally, Carroll’s classes have continued to transition from the classroom to online, saving space in buildings to make room for other classes as well as reducing class sizes. Whether it is an introductory class or a course that can be taken during winter or summer break, Carroll has strived to give their online classes

appeal to all types of students. While these new services for teachers and students must be tried in order to make a judgment of effectiveness, Johnson hopes to impact the Carroll community positively through the advanced technology devices now available. “In the case of additional hybrid and online courses, we hope to bring more flexibility as well as more options for students,” Johnson said. “Students can bring a lot to the table when we talk about technology and what they think will enhance their learning.”

Task Force prepares new Campus Safety position Caitlin Schmitt Staff Writer

The search committee is still in the process of interviewing applicants for the position of Chief Officer for Safety and Security. Ron Lostetter, Vice President for Finance and Administration, proposed this new position in hopes of making campus safety more accessible and approachable to students and staff. Ashley Frazier, student member of the Campus Safety Task Force, said, “With a new person, we can create the change we want.” For the position of Chief Officer, the search committee and the task force are looking for someone who is approachable and easy to talk to, according to Frazier. The task force and the search committee expect the new Chief Officer to evaluate the current campus safety procedures and see what can be changed or improved. Cat Jorgens, University Council, Risk Manager, and Instructor of Business Law, said the committee selected applications late into the fall semester. The committee received over 100 applications from around the country and in December, conducted a round of phone interviews as well as invitations to the three finalists to visit campus. According to Jorgens,

when the three applicants arrived on campus, they met with representatives from a wide variety of campus groups, including Student Senate, Student Affairs, Senior Staff and the task force convened by President Hastad. These interviews have recently been completed and Jorgens expects that senior staff will announce its selection soon. Frazier also expects the final decision will be made “within the next couple of weeks.” This new position will not change the status of the current safety officers or John Harbeck’s position as Director of Campus Safety. “[Harbeck] isn’t being replaced by any means,” said Frazier. Frazier said after the intensive interviewing and screening procedures, students and staff can be assured that the new Chief Officer will be highly qualified for the position. Jorgens agreed. “While a national search by a committee and an inclusive interview process take several months,” she said, “the investment of time and energy is worthwhile when filling a position this important to the campus.” Students have taken an active role in finding a qualified person for the job. “We are especially appreciative of the involvement of the many students who participated in this process,” Jorgens said.

one of looking out the window and declaring it but the joint cooperation of a few key Carroll University figures. Generally cancellations due to weather are made out of a concern for the safety of all those who attend the establishment. This is especially important during the winter months when there is potential for drifting snow, white out conditions, and freezing temperatures. Carroll’s physical plant is responsible for making sure that the Carroll environment is safe for all. “Our most important concern, especially during the winter, is that of getting the snow off the sidewalks and parking lots and salt down so people can walk safely,” said Director of Physical Plant Don Stenson. “It is Wisconsin though, so some of it we have to expect.” Generally the choice to close campus due to snow is not based by the “inch” but by other conditions such as wind, temperature, and potential for more bad weather. “It also has to do with the community as well,” said Stenson.

“We use the surrounding community conditions and our conditions to piece together a solution.” Once Stenson believes there to be an issue of weather conflicting with safety, he confers with President Douglas Hastad for a final decision. If a decision to close campus is made, Stenson is then obligated to contact Claire Beglinger, Carroll’s Senior Advancement Officer for Public Relations. Public Relations’ first job is to notify all the major Milwaukee area radio and television stations of the cancellation. PR then will proceed to issue a broadcast voice mail notifying the campus as well as those on the Campus Closing Contact List that the university is closed. “The Campus Closing Contact List is a list of campus people and/or offices we contact once we get the word to close,” said Beglinger. This would include the provost’s office, facilities, Campus Center, athletics, Chartwells, the information desk, and Campus Safety. Generally the decision to close campus an entire day or the weekend is made by 6 a.m. that morning. Partial day closing decisions are made between 6:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and eveningonly closings by 3:30 p.m.

Student guide for tackling federal taxes Dustin Zick

Editorial Staff In this tough economic bind we find ourselves in, a small increase in a student’s cash cushion is available in the form of tax refunds. While the deadline isn’t until April 15, that doesn’t mean students have to wait until then to file their taxes and receive a refund (if you have one coming). As soon as you receive W2’s for each job you held in 2008, you can file. Last week, Carroll offered the opportunity to pick up W2’s for any on-campus employment (unclaimed forms were sent to home addresses). The IRS gives employers until January 31 to distribute these forms to their employees, meaning you should have received all of your W2 forms. Students who aren’t being claimed as a ‘dependent’ on someone else’s return qualify for an additional $300 on their

rebate in the form of yet another ‘stimulus’ check. When it comes to the actual filing of taxes, many students are fortunate enough to have parents who fulfill this duty themselves, or via a tax preparer for the family. Though a tax lacky is a desirable addition to the family, being able to individually prepare your own taxes is a valuable lesson to be learned in preparation for the possibility of a less comfy future. In the digital age, the IRS strongly encourages digital filing for both federal and state taxes, and there are numerous websites which offer free filing services. Two of the most widely used sites are www.hrblock.com and www. turbotax.com. Both sites offer free federal e-file, but charge anywhere between twenty and thirty dollars for state. The Wisconsin Department of Revenue is offering free e-file for state taxes this year available at their website (www.dor.state. wi.us).

Carroll student and faculty brew interest in hobby Chelsea Ann Blackburn

Editorial Staff Sometimes there’s nothing more satisfying than a cold one after a long day. In the college environment where schedules can be daunting and sporadic, just looking forward to that light and blissful taste of Keystone and Natty Ice isn’t enough. Dave Brygger, a junior business major, said good-bye to ‘college beers’ when he decided to invest in home brewing. Brygger, whose endeavors began with brewing a simple apple wine in a plastic bottle, now cycles between brewing porter beer and wine from a five-gallon corny keg. After spending the summer working at a brewery, Brygger made the jump from brewing wine to brewing beer, a much more complex, timeconsuming, and costly process. “I love home brewing because I have creative input in the beer I drink,” Brygger said. Brygger’s last batch of beer was a coffee and chocolate porter that used dark malts throughout the process. While he prefers the taste of beer to wine, Brygger said making “wine is dirt cheap,” but the more intensive and creative process of brewing beer makes tasting the final outcome more rewarding. Brygger especially enjoys drinking Mud Puppy Porter, a beer from Central Waters Brewing Company in Amherst, Wisconsin. However, home brewing isn’t

a hobby just for students. Scott Hendrix, Associate Professor of History said, “I’m very new to brewing, but it’s great! Few hobbies allow you to drink the results of your labors!”

Former Real World cast member Joey Kovar spoke to Carroll students in January. Kovar commented on his previous addictions and his “rock star” lifestyle. Photo by Jeff Lin.

Dr. David Feil, Associate Professor of Mathematics, has been brewing on and off since his college days, when his first batch was made in a garbage can. Feil, who returned to his old

pastime ten years ago, hopes to have his own hops (a plant used in brewing beer to add bitterness, flavor and aroma) growing in his yard by next spring. Currently, Feil has brown ale in fermentation. “On my most recent batch, I spent about thirtytwo dollars in raw materials, which will give me about five gallons of beer,” Feil said. Brygger and Feil agreed that brewing wine can save you money, but brewing beer is more about the craft and the quality than anything. Although producing a highquality wine from a home brew is unlikely, “making wine is a heck of a lot easier,” Feil said. It’s cheap (about three dollars a bottle) and you can have a glass of wine with Mac n’ cheese and tater tots and not feel badly.” Both Brygger and Feil spend anywhere from two to four hours brewing and preparing the beer (this includes boiling). The next step, fermentation, can take anywhere from one to two weeks, depending on the amount of sugars needed to be converted into alcohol. Other factors such as type of yeast and beer (a lager for example, needs to be stored in cold temperatures for a long period of time to make a clearer beer) lengthen the process. After that, the beer is kegged to force carbon dioxide and carbonation into the beer with the keg system. “You have to buy the

corny [five-gallon brewing] keg—there’s no way around it,” Brygger said. Both Brygger and Feil buy their brewing supplies and ingredients from the local business, The Frugal Homebrewer, located just a few blocks away from Carroll on 238 West Broadway Street. “Save your money, about one-hundred dollars,” Feil said, “and head down to Frugal Homebrewer and ask for Greg— he’ll give you a little advice.” Both recommend that new brewers stick to the basics and follow a simple recipe until they become familiar with the process. Feil also recommends reading The Complete Joy of Homebrewing by Charles Papazian. Both Brygger and Feil suggest www.tastybrew.com for advice, recipes, and instructions. “It’s beer!” Feil said. “If you like beer, who wouldn’t want to make it?”

How to land the perfect internship Chelsea Mitchell Staff Writer

Securing the perfect internship is a daunting but necessary task. Internships provide real-life experience that can never be gained in the classroom, and also allow you to discover how your major translates into a specific career. Listed below are a few tricks that might just give you that edge to land that perfect internship.

Plan Ahead

If your major requires an internship, or you are planning on adding an internship in addition to your required coursework, make sure you plan ahead. There are many great internships out there but many of them are unpaid. Make sure that you plan out when, and if, you can afford to take an unpaid internship. Also take into consideration your course load and possible commute time.

Talk with Upperclassmen

Make connections in your classes. Many upperclassmen have already completed an internship and can give you some

great advice about the process. They are an especially great resource if they are planning to move on from their current internship, because a referral from a previous intern gives you an edge on other applicants.

Search the Web

Search the web for any companies you would be interested in working for. Even if they do not offer an internship, call and inquire. Sometimes companies will consider creating an unpaid internship, or will refer you to other companies that have pre-set internship programs.

Seek Advisement

Make sure to talk to your advisor about your current situation and discuss potential opportunities.

Make Connections

Networking is essential regardless of your field of expertise. Mingle and keep in touch with people who could help you later on. Finding an internship is never easy, but be persistent, creative, and network--you will find the perfect fit!

civil rights movement because Bland’s description of “the protest was really moving and it was [incredible] that she remembered so much after forty-three years,” Vassalotti said. Freshman Caleb Conn decided to attend Bland’s discussion because it “inspired change in our lives and it was someone’s story instead of someone lecturing at us. [This lecture] made the civil rights movement personal,” Conn said. The lecture made many students recognize that the civil rights movement “is still ongoing” as Bland commented that the civil rights movement is not an African American movement, but a human movement that seeks to free all races. She ended her discussion with the phrase, “Mighty rivers fill drop by drop—add your drop,” which is a phrase her grandmother once said. Bland’s lecture served as the first of seven events Carroll is hosting for the International and Multicultural Lecture Series this spring.

Carroll institutes Center for Leadership Excellence Mark Gauger

Staff Writer Nearly a year ago, Carroll University drafted plans for the launch of The Center for Leadership Excellence. Initiated by Provost, Dr. Joanne Passaro, the program was conceptualized as a response to local business’ fear of a shortage of value-ethical leadership in the economy. Ironically, this fear ended up manifesting itself into the worst economic recession in decades. With many business leaders retiring, the economy is finding itself in the position with few leaders having decision-making skills geared for long-prosperity of companies. “A background in ethical leadership training is highly prized to companies,” Passaro said. Training in this area is not only the responsibility of managers and leaders, but a great investment in one’s self. The Center will act as a conduit to integrate community business leaders with the college and engage multiple constituents with a common goal. The program will first offer a Leadership in Action course in Carroll classrooms designed for approximately twenty “mid to senior-level managers” interested in developing skills as valuebased leaders. Future courses will be offered, such as classes in student

leadership. Students will be part of a three-module course providing knowledge from seasoned leaders and integrating information learned into actual business settings. Leading the program will be JoAnne Brandes and Debra Lake, both former employees of Johnson Company, known for their leadership experiences and high levels of integrity. “I have a whole team of retired Johnson people behind me to help with the center,” Brandes said. Brandes has also served on UW-Madison’s Board of Regents and Carroll’s Board of Trustees. Working with Lake and Brandes will be some members of the Carroll Faculty. The goal of the program is to help create a strong network for county businesses to maintain open communication, facilitated by resources provided by the University. Passaro said, “Our insistence on quality and commitment for long term sustainability makes this a natural fit for Carroll University. It’s our responsibility and part of our mission statement to provide this service to the community.” Several local businesses are very eager to see the creation of such a program, noting that nothing like this exists in southeastern Wisconsin. President Dr. Doug Hastad said, “We are reaching out to a

group of people that Carroll has never reached out to.” Hastad hopes the program becomes such an integral part of the university that when Carroll’s name is spoken, The Center for Leadership Excellence automatically comes to mind. “Carroll is a great place and has great leadership,” Brandes said. The network created between Carroll and the

county could potentially spring economic growth to southeastern Wisconsin. Students would have the resources of hundreds of businesses further embedding the university into the community. Brandes said that Carroll wants to create a Center for Leadership in a time when companies are in extreme need of good leaders. A goal of the initiative is to consistently bring business

leaders to Carroll to speak with students and to act as a pool for managers to acquire knowledge and advice. Though it is still in the planning phases, once community stakeholders and partners are set, the program will officially announce itself. If successful, as stated by Hastad, “The program will develop many networks that wouldn’t have existed otherwise.”


Carroll students lured by phishing issues

Portal opens new opportunities

Carroll Students received an email regarding a “phishing alert” on Jan. 7. The email was sent after the discovery of false emails to students from sender “Webmail Support Team” with the subject “Dear Webmail Account User.” “Phishing”, according to Carroll University Chief information Officer Debra Jenkins, is when “bait”, or an email disguised as a legitimate piece of email, is sent to a user asking for some form of personal information. This information could include anything from account numbers to email addresses and passwords. In the past few months, fifteen Carroll students have had their information stolen. System Administrator Ryan Corcoran and the ITS department invested in a spam appliance that will sort through millions of spam emails per year. Thus far, the appliance has been very effective in keeping dangerous spam mail from reaching students. “The affects of phishing continues

to grow,” Jenkins said. “People could get far enough into your account to damage your credit which could take years to fix.” In a university setting, phishing is an especially concerning issue because of the number of students connected to the server. When the identity thief, or “phisherman,” has the server’s information, any student on the list could be prey to one of these emails. Also, because of the pure number of spam emails sent out, the actual university server itself could become blocked and unusable for up to a few days. If an email user opens one of these emails, they are usually asked to open a link or respond to the email with their information. Through the link, the “bait” email sends information about the user’s email account as well as the server the user is a part of back to the original sender. With this private information, the phisher is able to use the emailer’s account information to send more messages out to others on the same server, consequently spreading the spam mail and creating a mass number of emails with the potential for information theft. To keep yourself safe from identity or personal information theft, ITS has provided a few guidelines for students to follow. First, do not open email that you do not specifically recognize such as emails from banks that you do not have an account with. If you do receive suspicious-looking email, take your computer to ITS and ask someone for help. Technicians there will be able to distinguish whether or not it is bait email or an ordinary advertisement.

Carroll University’s updated internet portal has made a variety of new options easily accessible for students. Some of the new options include tabs to keep track of student organizations, free access to Rosetta Stone, and access to personal information from a variety of campus departments. Internet Technology Services (ITS) with help from 2008 Carroll graduate Kyle Hawkins have made major changes to the portal (my. carrollu.edu) over the past few months. ITS gathered input from students, faculty,

and staff about what changes the Carroll community wanted to see. Two major changes are the “My Pages” and “Campus Groups” tabs. The “My Pages” tab allows students to join campus groups and set up a calendar that can be synchronized with the groups they are involved in. Students can also browse and join groups under the “Campus Groups” tab. As of now, there are only a handful of student organizations are available in the tabs but more groups will be posted in the future.

Another big change to the portal is the accessibility of Rosetta Stone language immersion software. Provost Dr. Joanne Passaro said, “This is an amazing opportunity for students, faculty, and staff.” Carroll has an 18-month pilot program with Rosetta Stone that may be renewed depending on usage. Twenty languages are currently offered which will be extended to thirty-one in the near future. Passaro said, “We hope that Rosetta Stone will play an important role in our efforts to promote international and cultural competence across the University community.” Some smaller changes to the portal include “most popular” links added to student tab, housing placement information added to student tab on the Housing page, online purchase of textbooks under the student tab on the Course and Registration page. Students are also

able to access registration information online rather than stand in the often long lines to pick up registration packets. Additional features on the portal include a book club hosted by Dr. Kimberly Redding, Associate Professor of History and European Studies, and a search engine for information by department. ITS Director Marc Belanger said this process is ongoing. Changes to look for in the future include a co-curricular experiences transcript, a campus group page for all student organizations, enhanced course search and registration, and online statements along with bill payment through the Business Office. Comments and suggestions regarding changes to the portal can be submitted to mycarrollu@carrollu.edu.

Students try out Rosetta Stone Mark Gauger Staff Writer Carroll University implemented an 18-month trial of the innovative Rosetta Stone language software this semester. The program is accessible from the Carroll portal on or off campus. Students can study 30 different languages, ranging from English as a second language (ESL), to Russian, to Swahili. The software uses language immersion to help students learn in familiar ways. It utilizes speech recognition to improve pronunciation and written exercises for spelling, syntax and punctuation. Dr. Elena De Costa said, “The program works as a great language refresher and supplement.” Dr. Lelan McLemore, Dean of Humanities and

Social Sciences, stated the university’s interest in Rosetta Stone is to encourage student involvement in modern languages and culture and that it will not act as a substitution for language courses. “You aren’t going to become fluent [in a language] by using a computer program,” McLemore said. During the trial period, Carroll hopes that faculty will find ways to apply the program to various areas of study such as NCEP courses that require a basic understanding of different languages and cultures. Senior Megan Edwards has been using the program in preparation for a universitytrip to Italy. “The program is easy to [learn] and helps [language acquisition] with regular use,”

Students in MacAllister look on as a peer utilizes Rosetta Stone.

Edwards said. The program also provides International students with ESL assistance since facilities to do so are currently minimal at the university. The Carroll community has

an opportunity to enjoy the full breadth of this program and everyone should take advantage of the software to ensure its place in the future of the university.

Editor’s Letter to the Editor: Fix Ganfield, already Corner Anonymous

Emily Thungkaew

Editorial Staff You don’t have to have a subscription to The Economist or The Wall Street Journal to know that our country is facing an economic crisis. The current situation at hand is less than ideal, especially for those near to joining the workforce. Even to this day, I don’t understand how an economy goes into a recession. What is a recession, and what’s the difference between that and a depression? The only thing that I know is that this “recession” is causing a “depression” in my bank account and affecting my ability to partake in my favorite pastime: stimulating the economy. According to economists, a recession is a shorter and less disasterous version of a depression. The difference lies in how many jobs are lost, and how sharp the decline is. Apparently, our country hasn’t seen an economic crisis this bad since the Great Depression in the 1930s. This leaves us with smaller wallets and bigger prices. Tuition increases every year, the bookstore continues to rob us, and we pay thousands of dollars a semester on meal plans just to eat the same unhealthy food everyday. These are just a few problems I face as a full-time college student. However, they could be much worse in two short years. What if I can’t find a job? Am I supposed to support myself on all the money I didn’t make while I was in college? Regardless of the state of our national and even global economy, there are ways we can help ourselves through this time of penny-pinching. Experts suggest getting involved with professional organizations that relate to your area of study. Whether it’s an internship or volunteering, these kinds of strategies help you stand out to prospective employers. Creating a budget. Even if you don’t have an income, make a list of activities you do every month that require money. Put enough aside to cover all of your basic areas. Deciding whether your money is being well-spent. Those late night Taco Bell runs are adding pounds to your hips, not your wallet. Though I am guilty of ignoring the advice of experts myself, I feel as if all of the above are completely do-able. Once we return to “economic normalcy” as some economists like to say, I too will return to normalcy, and commit back to my patriotic duties of stimulating our economy.

Ganfield Gymnasium has long been a campus hot spot for a pick-up game of basketball. Students can be seen shooting hoops at almost all hours of the day. However, full court games have run into a bit of a problem. Almost the whole right side of the south end of the court is blocked off with yellow caution tape. The tape isn’t quite as big of an issue as the fact that the floor resembles Lake Michigan on a windy day. For months, the floor has been slowly rippling, creating a series of closely-spaced bumps in the floor. While defenders may find the ball shooting off the floor in the opposite direction helpful, anyone trying to dribble will be less than pleased.

Before Carroll’s latest fail-safe solution, they had been so courteous as to inform users of the gym that, yes, our floor is in the slow process of turning into the Himalayas. However, feel free to use the gym. Just be aware that Carroll will bear no responsibility should you any section of your lower leg snap like a twig. I suppose the ripples could be some sort of ankle strengthening device. If one can navigate the speed bumps, they would have some wickedstrong ankles. Of course, there’s always the chance that anyone without ankles more flexible than Gumby’s might happen to crash to the floor and yowl in pain after their foot takes a 90 degree joyride. Oh well, no pain no gain, right?

And so we have arrived at Carroll’s latest fail-safe solution. Cordon off the worsening condition by stringing yellow caution tape around volleyball standards. A nice, swift fix that will do absolutely nothing to find a cure for the real problem. One might have thought that Carroll would have taken advantage of a certain long stretch of time when students aren’t at school to fix the floor. However, the logic behind that answer seems to have not appealed to Carroll, and the floor continues to reach for the sky. Why it wasn’t torn up, or some other preventative measure put in place to keep the rippling from getting worse, I don’t know. While that would have rendered a section of the floor unusable, isn’t that where we’re

at anyways? All I know is that Gumby will be my first pick next time I’m in a game of five-on-five.

Zombie Cup Hey, what does that sign mean?

Special Contribution At the beginning of the fall semester Carroll University initiated a new program, Pioneer Print. The objective of the program is to track the amount of paper consumption throughout the campus and give students the responsibility to make environmentally wise decisions by limiting their printing use. However, many students continue to print off hundreds upon hundreds of sheets of paper throughout the year. These irresponsible habits feed a demand for paper that has detrimental effects which then ripple throughout our global ecosystem. As the machinery and vehicles used to harvest the lumber move into a plot of forest, they begin to form a series of roads to access the heart of the area. Natural resources in the form of oil begin to be consumed and vital habitat that many organisms depend on for survival starts to deteriorate. By the time the plot of forest is harvested, a large quantity of oil has been consumed and the once thriving ecosystem is reduced to a desolate waste land. Some lumber companies do actually spend time to plant new trees, but the trees tend to be the same species previously harvested, which results in a very unnatural environment with a low biodiversity. The trees are then moved to a paper mill where once again more resources are consumed. Up to 141 billion gallons of wastewater is discharged from paper mills yearly, resulting in the consumption of more water than any other industry. Many toxic pollutants can be found in the wastewater such as polychlorinated biphenyl, found in bleaching agents. These chemicals accumulate in organisms that we eat and can have significant effects on human health. Similar to water consumption, paper mills use a substantial amount of energy, placing as the third highest emitter of greenhouse gasses. Ironically, paper mills are actually emitting gasses that could be used by the very trees they just

turned into paper, creating a vicious cycle that continues to pump more greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere and destroy vast forests that cannot possibly sequester these gasses. As daunting as this all may sound, you can personally make a difference by practicing simple, tree-friendly guidelines. These are just a few simple things you can do to help save a tree and perhaps minimize the energy consumed during the paper making process. Every little choice we make to better the environment adds up and can make a difference on a global scale! If you are interested in learning more ways to lower your paper consumption use the Internet to search “paper consumption”.

Be conscious about your paper consumption and print less.

Curse you coffee zombies!!!

Recycle your paper.

Oh, look... they have hot coco!

Every 500 sheets of printing paper you use accounts for six percent of a tree that was eight inches in diameter, 50 feet tall, and 20 years old. One ton of recycled paper saves seventeen trees.

Purchase paper with post consumer recycled content.

Many stores carry such items and are usually labeled in plain sight.

Eliminate junk mail.

Nearly 41.5 billion pieces are sent yearly in the United States.

Carroll thespians perform in search for mathmatical “Proof” Lyla Goerl Staff Writer

“Proof,” coming to Carroll University Feb. 20-22, is a play that explores a mathematical proof as well as the dynamic relationships found within an eccentric family. Rayen Singletary, who plays Claire, the main character’s contolling sister, said “the play

is about relationships, not mathematics. While math is involved in the play, it is about a family building a relationship.” The play revolves around Catherine, played by Katie Binger, the daughter of Robert, a deceased mathematical genius and professor at the University of Chicago. The play travels through her struggle to understand her father’s mathematical genius and mental illness as well as the

possiblity of her own instability. Upon Robert’s death, one of his ex-graduate students, Hal, discovers a paradigmshifting mathematical proof in the professor’s office. The title refers both to the proof itself as well as the play’s core question: Can Catherine prove the proof ’s authorship? Throughout the production Catherine must face her fear of following in her father’s footsteps, mathematically and mentally. The director, Jill WalmsleyZager, is a “wonderful director,” says Binger, “She gives us great exercises to help us understand the script, which we all enjoy reading.” Jill’s husband, Theater Department Chair James Zager,

51st Grammy awards Lyla Goerl Staff Writer

The 51st annual Grammy awards seek to bring a level of interaction with viewers unlike anything seen in the past. The ceremony, scheduled to air on CBS at 8pm on Feb. 8, will be simulcast with additional coverage through various online social networking platforms. The simulcast will allow viewers to witness the ceremony supplemented online with additional material at both grammy.com and CBS.com. It will also be available via Twitter under the name “the Grammys,” on Facebook, YouTube and on the music radio website, Last. fm. Additionally, a new segment of the program titled “My Grammy Moment” allows viewers to record a 30-60 second spot of them singing to a portion of GRAMMY nominee Katy Perry’s hit song “I Kissed a Girl.” After submitting their video’s by February 6, the fan with the most votes will have their clip featured in Perry’s performance during the show. In addition to the numerous artists who have received

nominations, many artists have been announced as performers during the show itself. These include: Kenny Chesney, Coldplay, Jennifer Hudson, The Jonas Brothers, Lil Wayne, Paul McCartney (with special guest drummer Dave Grohl), Katy Perry, Radiohead, T.I. and Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, T.I. and Kanye West, Kid Rock, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Rihanna, U2, Adele, Christ Brown, Sugarland, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift. Additionally, there will be a tribute to the Four Tops featuring original member Abdul “Duke” Fakir. The British band Coldplay holds seven nominations including Album of The Year for “Viva La Vida”. They’re second only to the rapper Lil Wayne, who recieved eight nominations, also including Album of the Year for “Tha Carter III”. Rounding out the Album of the Year category are, Ne-Yo (“Year of the Gentlemen”), Alison Krauss and Robert Plant (“Raising Sand”) and indie favorite Radiohead for “In Rainbows”. Teenage favorite The Jonas Brothers vie for the Best New Artist award against fellow emerging artists Adele, Duffy, Lady Antebellum and Jazmine Sullivan.

believes Jill is doing an excellent job as director. “She just got out of a college down in Illinois, and she is really excited to be directing ‘Proof,’” Zager said. Rehearsals have been well received by the performers involved. Walmsley-Zager’s acting exercises help loosen the mood and allow the actors to explore the depth of the characters. “I like being able to find someone new and explore their way of being and the way they think,” Binger said, “especially in this case, where I play Catherine, who struggles in wondering if she will become mentally ill like her father was.” Trevor Erickson, also

performing in “Proof,” loves being able to be in another world and bringing stories to life off the page. “It’s also nice to be working with other incredible actors/directors. It never gets old and you build a new relationship with everyone else.” Rayen Singletary, a veteran of the Carroll stage, said, “it’s a release to act. You can take the time to sit down and look at yourself, and are able to get the tensions out.” James Zager’s next project is the spring play, ‘Un Sueño Nuevo,’ which will hold auditions March 2-3. He encourages any interested students, regardless of their major, to try out.

Season 5 has brand new reasons to get “Lost” Dustin Zick

Editorial Staff After more than half a year without “Lost” fans finally have reason to rejoice. Season 5 has arrived with a bang. Everything “Losties” have come to love has came back in full force.

Sure, none of our big questions have been answered. We still don’t know what the numbers mean. We still haven’t learned who the Others are. We still have no answers to what the Smoke Monster is and they haven’t even mentioned the existence or significance of the fourtoed statue. Amidst all of these lingering questions, “Lost” is back, and despite providing any answers, it’s as good as ever. Last season we left our favorite plane crash survivors in

a very unusual place. The show had flipped it’s habit, and instead of showing flashbacks, it moved to flash- forwards. Currently we learned that six survivors, dubbed “The Oceanic Six” had made it off the nefarious island.The rest of the survivors’ locations are in the air, as we witnessed the island quite literally disappear. With each progressive season, the series seems to open a new chapter and allow us access not just to new characters, but new environments as well, and season five is no exception. The creators’ decision to end the series in its sixth season to be aired in 2010 has brought with it a welcome transition where the show is now beginning to answer more questions than it asks, a positive change of dynamic for many diehard fans. With season five running straight through the end of May, we’ve already seen some of the burning questions answered, including a short explanation of how Charles Widmore knew about the existence of the island in the first place. Admittedly, it takes a lot of commitment and faith to be a fan of “Lost.” Fans know that each episode will undoubtedly feature some bizarre, unexplained plot point. Though most wouldn’t want the show any other way. “Lost” airs on ABC at 8pm on Wednesday nights.

Season five of Lost (so far): 5 out of 5.

Explore neighboring Milwaukee for a unique Valentine’s date Lissy Fleming Editorial Staff

La Amour! The day of love is quickly approaching and our campus is filled with heart shape garlands, paper cutout cupids, and couples holding hands. Candies, candles, kisses and flowers are normal gifts

exchanged on the fourteenth, but instead of sticking to the norm this year here are a few ideas to take your date to a more creative level. One of the first cliché dates of Valentine’s Day is the classic romantic dinner out, tie included. Though this date can be one filled with candlelight,

hand holding, and delectable dessert, it can also become pretty pricy for the gentleman involved. Instead of spending a bundle, finding a car, and searching for the perfect restaurant, why not create your own? First, clean that dorm room (boys listen up!). Taking time to clean, vacuum, and maybe spray some Febreeze is sure to be a mood boost for the evening. Next, re-arrange a little bit and create a space in the center of your room to spread a blanket down. Add some special flare of your own such as flower petals, cut out hearts, or something completely original (just stay away from candles). Finally make dinner or order in, pick out a movie you both have wanted to see, and settle down for a Valentine’s Day picnic! This can be a little cheesy, but make the eperience as fun and romantic as you want to. The possibilities are pretty much endless... Another Valentine’s Day staple is the giving of jewelry. Though beautiful and romantic, jewelry is expensive and can’t be shared between the two of you. Instead, plan for a night out on the town--Milwaukee to be exact. Living in Waukesha, many students know the general location of Milwaukee, but have never truly tapped into the possibilities it holds. So, why not take this Valentine’s to explore Waukesha-College News the city?

The Oriental Theatre is located at 2230 North Farwell Avenue in Milwaukee. Showtimes can be found online at https://tickets.landmarktheatres.com Photo by Lissy Fleming.

The Oriental Theater www. landmarktheatres.com is one such opportunity. Located on the Eastside, the Oriental has been showing films since 1927 and is known for its historical with an incredibly diverse and unique film selection. With a student discount given on all films as well as a location in the heart of the Eastside surrounded by restaurants of all sorts, the Oriental Theater is the perfect destination to take a Saturday night to discover. Also, if you are looking for a little adventure, check out the special midnight showing of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Ad:Layout 1 1/15/09 1:55 PM Valentine’s Day. Finally, check

out Alterra on the Lake before the movie for some amazing coffee or some great food as well as an amazing view of the Lake. These are just a few ideas to get you started on your search for the perfect date. As a rule, stick to the knowledge that time matters more than money and your significant other will appreciate anything as long as you take the time. If you are seeking a neverfail classic, look for a great flower shop such as the Old English Flower Shoppe in Waukesha (262-542-5175). You can never go wrong with a dozen red roses. Page 1

The Carroll University Women Pioneers basketball team is sitting on the brink of a conference tournament slot. Ranked second in the Midwest Conference, the Lady Pios are currently one game ahead of the fifth place and missing the conference tournament. Carroll has a tough road ahead of them, with three of the five final games of the regular season against teams in the top four in the MWC. The Lady Pios solidified their hold on second with a 78-47 win over Lawrence University on Jan. 31. The Pios overcame a 6-19 deficit in the first half. From there, Carroll went on a 15-0 run to take a 21-19 lead which they would never relinquish. Freshman Karen Hoewisch led the team with 13 points and eight rebounds, while junior Leah Lemke dished out five assists. While Carroll survived winless Lawrence, they didn’t fare as well against conference leader St. Norbert College. The absence of Sophomore Lindsay Seewald, who had been leading the conference in scoring, was noticeable. Seewald tore her ACL in a Jan.13 win against Ripon.

The Lady Pios fell 66-54, shooting a dismal 57 percent from the free throw line and 32 percent for the game. Carroll was also hammered on the boards, getting out rebounded 46-33. St. Norbert head coach Connie Tilley earned her 500th career victory. Head coach Kris Jacobsen was disappointed with the loss, but pleased with her team’s effort. “Our shots weren’t falling,” she said. “It’s hard to maintain your confidence.” However, her team battled back to within four points with 3:42 left in the game. They were unable to draw any nearer, and St. Norbert pulled away down the final stretch. “I think that says a lot about how we’ve grown,” said Jacobsen of her youthful team. Seewald’s injury will keep her out the rest of the season, according to Head Coach Kris Jacobsen. “That was a huge blow,” she said. The loss of Seewald is affecting the Lady Pios’ trademark pressure defense. Carroll leads the MWC in steals, with Seewald averaging 2.1 steals per game. Carroll’s lack of a post presence has also created problems. “With our lack of size it’s difficult to match up,” said Jacobsen. The team has tried switching to a 2-3 zone

against St. Norbert, but was unable to deny the post. Jacobsen also reflected on her team’s conference tournament chances. “We’ll take each game one at a time and not feel the pressure,” she said. “Hopefully by that time we’ll be playing our best basketball.” Carroll started off 2009 with a win at Lawrence 85-64. They followed that up with a heartbreaking loss to Beloit. The Buccaneers hit a shot with four seconds left to beat the Pioneers 68-67. The next week they battled to a 68-66 win over tough Ripon team thanks to two clutch free throws from Karen Hoewicsh with three seconds left. A two-game weekend road trip netted an 86-57 win for the Pioneers over Grinnell and a 66-86 loss to the Fighting Scots of Monmouth. After a non-conference win at UWOshkosh 82-64, Carroll swept visiting Knox and Grinnell with 89-58 and 90-74 wins respectively. The Lady Pios now sit at 8-3 in conference play and 13-5 overall. Next up for Carroll is a home battle with Lake Forest College on Feb. 6

Carroll inducts 2009 athletic hall of fame class Justin Koepsell Editorial Staff

Welcome new Carroll athletic Hall of Fame inductees. It is a privilege to have such fine gentlemen as alumni from our institution. Here is the 2009 Hall of Fame class: Willard Gore, a 1937 graduate, was a member of the Carroll football teams in the mid 1930s. He played center and was part of the Carroll team that went 7-0 in 1936 including a win over UW-Milwaukee (then known as Wisconsin State Teachers College). That year was the third and most recent time a Carroll football team went undefeated and untied in a season. Dennis Punches, a 1958 graduate, was a three sport athlete at Carroll in football, basketball and track. He was part of Carroll athletics when they made the transition to the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (then known as the College Conference of Illinois). Dennis Punches also made a generous donation to the Building Champions Campaign. The new track and field complex is named in his honor. Gary McTrusty, a 1966

graduate, was a seven time letter winner in cross country and track. He was an All-Conference runner three times including the win of the first ever College Conference of Illinois cross country championship. He won the individual title and led the Pioneers to the team title, the only menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross country conference championship won by the school. McTrusty was also a member of the only Carroll cross country team to qualify for national championship meet in 1960. James Schneider, a 1974 graduate, was a member of the Pioneer football teams in the early 1970s. He played an important role in the 1970 edition of the Pios. Playing offensive and defensive line, he helped Carroll to an 8-1 record that year with only an opening week loss to Carthage, which kept them from winning the conference crown. Carroll continued to be a force in the league, finishing in the top half of the conference standings every year he played. He also made a generous donation to the Building Champions Campaign. The football field is named in his honor. Jason Cook, a 1996 graduate, was a three time All-Midwest Conference player from 1994-1996. He is

Indoor Track off and running in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;09 season Stef West

Staff Writer With only two meets under their belt, the Carroll track and field team has had a promising kick-off to the 2009 season. The season started off with the Private College Invitational held at Carthage College where the women placed third of seven teams, with the men also finishing third of nine teams. For the Lady Pios, freshman Megan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Grady won two events in her first college track meet, with winning times 2:27.46 and 5:21.54 for the 800 meter run and mile run, respectively. The 4 x 200 relay team also had a first place finish, with a time of 1:52.40. Jenny Jakubowski, a sophomore, placed second in the shot put with a throw of 38â&#x20AC;&#x2122; 1/4â&#x20AC;?. For the men, Josh Hurlebaus dominated the sprint events. Hurlebaus won the 55 meter dash and 200 meter dash with times of 6.42 and 22.38, respectively. Carroll also racked up the points with the 55 meter hurdles where Justin Troeller winning the event with a time of 8.13. Troeller was followed by teammate Jeff Releford, who finished second with a time of 8.39. The next week was the UW-Whitewater Invitational. The women placed third out of twelve teams and the men took fourth of twelve. The women were highlighted by Megan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Grady, winning the 3000 meter run in 10:24.03 and Becca Grafenauer, winning the pole vault with a vault of 3.51meters. The 4x200 relay team won for the second straight meet.

Sarah Duchow turned in a second place finish in the 200 with a time of 26.84. Lauren Rein finished the 5000 meter run in 20:20.66 for second place. The men saw Josh Hurlebaus win the 55 once again, this time in 6.39 seconds. Justin Troeller took the 55 meter hurdles in 7.95 seconds. A.J Sobrilsky finished second in the 5000 meter run with a time of 15:49.04. While the Pioneers may be a young, they return with many key components of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team including three-time AllAmerican and four-time national qualifier Josh Hurlebaus, who has already provisionally qualified to the national championships for the 55 meter dash and is currently third in the nation. For the women, Becca Grafenauer is a two-time national qualifier in the pole vault and was ranked tenth last year in the indoor national championships. She provisionally qualified for the national championships at UW-Whitewater with a vault of 3.51 meters and is currently tenth in the nation â&#x20AC;&#x153;The personnel has great depth,â&#x20AC;? said Head Coach Shawn Thielitz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are very knowing and understanding.â&#x20AC;? Thielitz has very distinct goals for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group of young, talented athletes. He looks to continue being a very competitive team in the conference and a force to be reckoned with. While he knows that there is a lot of work involved in winning any sort of championship, Thielitz recognizes that the road to victory will be an uphill battle, but is very confident that this team can rise to the challenge.

Swim Teams enter Midwest Conference Championships with high expectations Justin Koepsell Editorial Staff

The seasons for the Carroll University men’s and women’s swimming teams is quickly coming to an end with the Midwest Conference Championships being held Feb. 13-15 at Grinnell College in Iowa. The team had a busy January to prepare for the championships with four meets in the past month. They started with Carroll Collision on the Jan. 10. The men managed to win two of three matches in the multi-dual meet with wins against Beloit and the College of DuPage and a loss against Ripon. Warren Anderson won the 50 yard freestyle and 100 yard butterfly for Carroll with times of 24.56 and 58.98 respectively. The women swept their home meet with wins over Beloit, College of DuPage and Ripon. Their 400 yard medley relay and 400 yard freestyle relay teams won in 4:32.33 and 4:03.42 respectively. Breanna Lindholm won the 1000 yard freestyle and the 500 yard freestyle in 12:02.25 and 5:54.12 respectively. The Beloit Spectacular was next and women won the four

team meet with Jamie Larsen winning the 50 yard freestyle in 26.93 and Danielle Grzywa winning the 200 yard backstroke in 2:16.54. The men finished third of four in Beloit. Brendan Brunner picked up a big win for the Pioneers finishing the 200 yard freestyle in 1:56.83. The Carroll men suffered two losses in the Lake Forest double-duel to both Lake Forest and Lawrence. Brendan Brunner picked up two wins taking both the 800 meter freestyle in 9:50.79 and the 400 meter freestyle in

4:42.15. The women were also swept by Lake Forest and Lawrence in Lake Forest. Jordan Barclay won the 200 meter individual medley in 2:36.77. At the Wisconsin Private College Championships at Carthage, the Lady Pios took second out of six teams finishing behind the hosting Lady Reds. Jordan Barclay and Jamie Larsen finished 1-2 in the 200 yard breaststroke with times of 2:35.49 and 2:37.56 respectively. Danielle Grzywa won the 200 yard backstroke in 2:14.09 to

break the meet record. The Carroll men finished the meet in fourth out of five teams. Their 200 yard freestyle relay team took third finishing in 1:37.64. “It’s been a very exciting year,” said Coach Joanne Brandtjen. “We’re young and this is a springboard year for the freshmen and sophomores. I look forward to them developing into team leaders.” Up next for the Pioneers are the Midwest Conference Championships. On the women’s side, Jordan Barclay currently holds the top conference times in the 200 and 400 yard individual medleys and the 100 yard breaststroke. Danielle Grzywa has the top times in the 100 and 200 yard freestyle. Aurthur Thomas, for the men, currently is third in the conference in both one meter diving and three meter diving. “I have very high expectations for conference,” said Coach Brandtjen. “The girls team should, I’m hoping [take] top three. Hopefully five wins possibly six. The relays will be really nail biting.” The Midwest Conference meet starts Friady, February 13 at 10:00a.m. At Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa.

Men’s Hoops find themselves in the thick of Midwest Conference title hunt Keith Hoehne

Staff Writer After a nail biting 9082 overtime defeat to UWOshkosh on Dec. 20, the Pioneer basketball team found themselves 5-3 on the season with two straight road games in the future featuring Division III powerhouse no. 4 Stevens Point, and defending Conference Champion Lawrence University. The Pioneers came into Stevens Point having already lost to three WIAC schools on the season as well as losses to Point in the past two seasons. However, history did not repeat itself as they marched through Point with a 85-71 victory. “After the loss to Oshkosh our guys were disappointed,” Coach Dave Schultz said. “I think that propelled us to the next week getting ready for Point and that win, and playing as well as we did, gave us confidence.” The Pioneers continued on a roll as they went into Appleton a week later and defeated the Vikings 88-64. They never trailed and had four of five starters in double digits. The win was not only an accomplishment for the team, but for Shultz as well. With the win at Lawrence, Schultz recorded his 100th career win at Carroll. The Pioneers returned home to roll over Beloit 95-57. The next game against Ripon would prove to not be so easy. After trailing for the first, and the better part of the second half, the Pioneers prevailed scoring 9 points in the final minute of play to edge out the Red Hawks 9995.

Following the win over Ripon, the road continued to be rocky as the Pioneers traveled down to Iowa to face the highpowered offense of Grinnell. With six players scoring in double digits, and making 62 percent of their shots, the Pioneers were able to get by Grinnell for a 108-102 win. Carroll continued the momentum going into Monmouth a day later to come away with a 79-66 win over the Fighting Scots. Following the three game road trip, the Pioneers returned home for a weekend facing off against Knox and Grinnell. The Pioneers beat the winless Prairie Fire with ease 85-62. They then had to face Grinnell for the second time a day later. The game seemed to be over before it started as Carroll cruised past Grinnell 132-83. The Pioneers had three players with twenty or more points in the win with John Hoch leading the way with a career best of 34 points. “In that game I think our defense was very good,” said Coach Schultz. “They had very few clean looks, every shot was contested, and then we defensively rebounded. Also, playing that close in a time span helped us because everything was fresh” The then 24th nationally ranked Pioneers looked to extend their winning streak to nine over No. 14 ranked St. Norbert. Carroll had a rough go of it. After shooting only 43 percent from the field and 24 percent from behind the arc, the Pioneers fell to the Green Knights 76-63. With this loss, the Pioneers fell to second in the conference with a record of 9-1.

Carroll’s rematch with Lawrence didn’t go as hoped either. After a close first ten minutes Lawrence went on a 30-4 run to end the half and

never looked back, winning the game 94-67. The loss dropped Carroll to 9-2 in the MWC and 13-5 overall, one game behind league leading St. Norbert
