Discussion heated up at the April 2 City of Waukesha Landmarks Commission meeting regarding the proposal to build a four-story student dormitory and to add additional parking spaces at Carroll College behind Steele/Swarthout Residence Hall. According to Director of Campus Services Rick Jessen, the proposed plans would require that three Carroll College-owned homes on Wright Street be removed. The three targeted homes include 120, 124/126 and 202 E. Wright Street. The expansion to Steele/ Swarthout would add 169 beds and a net increase of approximately 25 parking spaces. The plans for the homes are still unknown, although some discussion has been made about whether or not it would be possible for the homes to be relocated. The proposed time frame for the
plans would be to start excavation over the summer, to be completed in fall 2004. Beginning in the summer would create less disturbance for both the students and the community members, according to Jessen. The proposed plans would keep with the look of the other buildings on campus, including a laden stone front and a red roof. These plans are just some of the campus plans for the future and are a work in progress, according to Jessen. Community members were given time to speak, which included many who have lived in the area for more than 40 years, who have mixed feelings on the proposed plans. One McCall Street 40-year resident stated that she was “unhappy about the possible plans because they promised us they wouldn’t go east of East Avenue, which they did anyway.” Landmarks Commission See Housing Page 2

As Carroll College grows, the enrollment of international and minority students is decreasing, according to a compilation of statistics put together by Vice President of Enrollment James Wiseman. During winter break, the Diversity Committee developed a document outlining the problems and possible solutions to diversity on campus. “We are not complaining; we are trying to help,” expressed junior Emanuel Grenni, a front runner in the diversity movement. The original document, released early this semester, pointed out issues, such as lack of diversity among administration and faculty; inadequacies with public relations, both in-house and out; and the lack of support for existing diversity already on campus. This document also sug-
gested several possible improvements to Carroll’s diversity program. Some of these suggestions included providing diversity training for faculty and administration, hiring a full-time International Admissions Counselor, and conducting a diversity audit. According to the com-
At one point the committee drafted a letter, backed by over 500 student signatures, to the Board of Trustees outlining the issues, but according to Grenni, not a single response from the Board of Trustees was received. After the attempt to gain the Board of Trustees support failed, the Diversity Committee presented “We are not complaining; their issues to Student Senate.

“I don’t like to lose,” said junior Stephen Pfeiffer, referring to the 2003-04 Student Senate Presidential Election in which he recently competed against junior Abigail Kogler. “But if I lose to someone like Abbey, I don’t mind. I know she has the passion and drive to make our Student Senate a success.” As Student Senate bids the current president, senior Mick Linse, goodbye May 4, Kogler will be welcomed in with “trust and respect by all,” Pfeiffer affirmed. Carroll College faces many issues that have created turmoil on campus throughout the past semester. When our current president was asked if he believed Kogler has the potential to make things happen, Linse responded confidently, “Abbey is a great senator. She is highly dedicated and takes her duties to represent the student body in a serious manner. Abbey does an outstanding job in all that she does, inside and outside of Senate. She will be the leader the school needs and I know she will make an excellent student senate president.”
Currently Student Senate is focusing on solutions for the two major issues the Carroll community seems to be most concerned with: the lack of diversity and the no confidence vote in College President Frank
Falcone. Student Senate is constructing a proposal to support diversity on campus and build multicultural sensitivity in and around the campus. As of now, several students are utilizing Senate as a channel of communication to voice their opinions about the vote of no confidence. “I think in order to be a good leader, one must have experience and listen to those whom they are leading while responding in a way that is understood. Delegating is definitely essential, but more importantly a leader must stay
where the action is and be part of the team,” declared Kogler. “I want to build Student Senate even stronger than it already is,” Kogler proclaimed. “Mick has done an excellent job of opening the channels of communication between students and senior staff on campus. It is my job now to keep the contact open and attainable, while communicating to my fellow students the issues that affect the quality of our education and the future of our college. I want everyone to have a voice and an opinion.” Linse has led Student Senate as president in a new and positive direction. The Carroll community comes to Student Senate for support more now than in years past due to the encouragement and appreciation that he shows them. “I am going to miss Mick next year,” Kogler reminisced, “I respect Mick not only as a great leader on campus, but as a friend as well.” When asked about the expectations for the 2003-04 academic year as Student Senate President, Kogler stated, “Next year is going to be challenging, but has the potential to be very productive. I am looking forward to it.”

wants to keep the neighborhood in tact and protect the historic properties. On the other hand, another area resident said that he would rather see it be bought by the college for more dormitory space than have it bought and become rundown housing. Carroll feels that the proposed plans are necessary seeing that there are 150 triples on cam-
pus, including the on-campus apartments. The dormitory space at Carroll is limited and close to capacity at this time. Alternatives to the proposed plans include turning the soon-to-be vacant Beta house into supervised student housing or renovating the lower level of North Bergstrom Residence Hall, where the nursing labs are now located, into dormitory space by
adding windows much like “the palace” in the lower level of Swarthout Residence Hall. Although other recommendations were made, it would be less expensive per bed if the proposed plans were passed. No vote was made at the meeting due to the absence of four Landmarks Commission members. Carroll College will bring the plans back to the Landmarks Commission at the next meeting in May.

Waukesha Women’s Center expands with new facility New building will hold more victims of domestic abuse Jill Ridenour Staff Writer
When you were younger you probably heard the phrase “Don’t hit girls,” or something close to that, at least a few times. This applies ten fold if you had a sister. Well then why is it that, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, “In the United States, a woman is beaten every nine seconds by an intimate or former partner?” There are many theories as to why this horrible event happens, but theories won’t help those suffering from domestic violence this ninth second. For this reason, it is crucial that places like the Waukesha Women’s Center on North East Avenue exist. It was founded in 1977 by five “Founding Mothers” who were concerned about the safety of people involved in violent situations. The Waukesha Women’s Center, one of the first of it’s kind, opened its doors to people affected by domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse nearly 25 years ago, and they are still serving the Southeastern Wisconsin area to this day. They soon will be serving Waukesha in a whole new way when their $3.2 million expansion project at 505 N. East Avenue is completed in June of this year. The project went underway in August 2002 and the center was able to be built because of state and federal grants, funding from the United Way, corporations and individuals. Along with these, several organizations at Carroll

The current Waukesha Women’s Center will be joined by a new facility that will house 32 women and their children who are victims of abuse. College participate by holding events, like the recent Charity Auction and Charity Concert, and donating the proceeds to the Women’s Center. The new Women’s Center will be able to house 32 women and their children as opposed to the current house that can only hold 20. However, prior to this new expansion, the house was in a confidential location, but by making this new center public, safety could be in question. According to Karen Potter, Special Projects and Communications Coordinator, “There are people that don’t believe the shelter
should be public. They feel that it is not a safe enough environment for the women and children in shelter, but we will have security. We’ve taken all kinds of security measures to protect them, and we have a very close relationship with the Waukesha Police Department, who regularly patrols the area, and they do that now for our current shelter.” Also, by making the Women’s Center public, it will bring the topic of domestic violence, sexual assault, and abuse out of the shadows and into the light of reality where, hopefully, more can be done about it. Potter’s hope in making this facility public “Is
that the community can really take a look at the issue and see that it is an issue.” She continued saying, “It’s an issue for our community, it’s an issue for other communities all over the world, and all over our country, and (it’s important) to see that we all need to pull together to stop violence. You need to (stop violence) at a young age before it becomes a way of life for people. So, one of the biggest things that we try to do is to break that cycle of violence, and a lot of the counseling that we do is with children that live in abusive homes so that they learn that that’s not the way to handle their problems. And hopeful-
ly by doing that, we can stop violence. But hopefully the new facility will kind of make that known to the public, that this is an issue for all of us, and something that we should all be concerned about.” The Women’s Center offers a variety of services to the Milwaukee County area including the Sister House, or emergency shelter, a transitional living program, professional counseling services, legal advocacy, a 24-hour crisis line, which received 4,457 calls in 2002, and many other valuable services. The benefits to opening this new facility are numerous, but awareness is the key, and this new facility becoming public, “Is going to help a lot of people out there that aren’t aware that these services exist. There are probably a lot of women out there that don’t know that there’s help, that don’t know that there’s somebody that they can reach out to, and by making this facility public, they’ll know that they can come here for help,” Potter explained. Lending a helping hand to those in need is the primary focus of the Waukesha Women’s Center and help with funding, volunteering, or even just participating in events at Carroll that donate their proceeds to the Women’s Center is something that you can do to help. If you think that this doesn’t have anything to do with you, you may just not realize how close to home it could actually be. From her experience, Potter concluded, “If you spoke to See Center Page 6

However, in the last couple weeks, not only communication, but also electricity and water have been cut off to many. Hit particularly hard by war are Iraq’s children, no longer attending school but stuck inside their homes until it is safe to go out and play. “The homes have no basements in Iraq and just a few public bomb shelters, so my family has been sleeping under their stairs,” said Carroll College junior Russwurm. However, the Iraqi offices of UNICEF, the United Nation’s children fund, set up to help children in war-torn countries, are remaining open and have been successful in distributing much needed supplies. Russwurm stated that her relatives stocked up on food, water and propane before the outbreak of war. However, knowing that many other families may not be wellequipped, Russwurm turned

to politics professor Mary Kazmierczak about what to do. “I thought raising money for UNICEF’s ‘Save Iraq’s Children’ Campaign would be a wonderful way to empower Anita to do something positive for Iraq,” Kazmierczak said. As faculty advisor of Carroll’s revived political honor society Pi Sigma Alpha, Russwurm and Kazmierczak quickly enlisted the help of members to collect funds. “No children deserve to live under circumstances like this. They should be able to live a life like any other child,” Russwurm said. According to UNICEF, since the 1990’s, one in eight children die by the age of five in Iraq. Teachers earn $5 an hour and by secondary school, 50% of the male population no longer attend. Members of Pi Sigma Alpha have been collecting change in the Main Dining Room, trick-or-treating for UNICEF and holding bake sales. A goal to raise $2,000 has been set, which they say is about $1 per Carroll student, the cost of UNICEF vaccinating one child against polio or
measles. “It is our moral obligation as human beings to help other people and children are the ones that need the help the most,” said Denise Laszewski, junior member of Pi Sigma Alpha. “We just stepped out of our childhood, so we can understand because we’re still pretty close,” senior member Aphrodite Bouikidis added. Russwurm said that she and her family were living a good life in Iraq although they were Christians amongst the Muslim majority. Russwurm’s father is German and mother Iraqi. They lived in Basra until 1981 when the Iran-Iraq war broke out causing her family to immigrate to Germany where her mother and father reside today. Russwurm still has relatives in Basra, Baghdad and Mosul. Pi Sigma Alpha raised nearly $200 in its first day of collection. Those interested in contributing funds may send checks payable to, “US fund for UNICEF” through campus mail to Mary Kazmierczak, Politics Department or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

abstention is another venue to gain as many votes as possible. This option is available for students who don’t feel they are fully informed on the issue or don’t have a concrete opinion. Linse, in a meeting with Falcone March 31, made it known that a student vote of no confidence could take place. Linse said the meeting
was very business-like, but was unable to speak on Falcone’s behalf. The Student Senate vote of no confidence was not a simple conclusion for Student Senate to reach. After much deliberation and a five-minute recess to contemplate the decision, the final vote of no confidence was passed.

Main Hall will be open for limited, self guided tours during the week of April 28. It will close the week of May 5 and open again after commencement on Sun., May 11 for tours. Classes are scheduled in Main Hall starting Summer Session II. During the summer, new, permanent practice rooms will be constructed on the second floor of Shattuck Auditorium-Music Center. The basement of Otteson Theatre, the current home for the practice rooms will house the Nursing Department next semester, including a computer lab and professors’ offices. Howard Bashinski, ITS Client Services Manager, remarked, “A half a dozen computers will be in the lab, specifically for nursing students.” The theater department storage moved from the Otteson Theatre basement to the Barstow Building basement during spring break. In June, Carroll College will purchase the Women’s Center house next to the Walter Young Center. Rick Jessen, Director of Campus Services, said, “The house will be an overflow

Recently, the Carroll College Physical Therapy program has undergone the intensive process of reaccreditation. reaccreditation is when an outside body of experts looks at the Physical Therapy program to ensure that students who graduate from the program are sufficiently trained in the field. According to Dr. Jane Hopp, chair and director of the Masters of Physical Therapy Program, “Every academic program should have to go through this assessment by an outside body.” This is because an outside body offers an objective view of the program. Carroll College professors and staff members were also involved in the reaccreditation process. This past January, the Physical Therapy department submitted a 1,300 page self evaluation to the reaccreditation committee. This report, which was written by the entire staff, was composed of four sections. The first dealt with the Physical Therapy program as an organization, such as how the Physical Therapy program
fit in with the college. The second dealt with the resources available. The third dealt with the curriculum, including the philosophy of the program, the syllabi, as well as program’s goals and outcomes. The final section included an assessment; this is an ongoing process that includes interviews with students, peers, alumni, researchers, employers, as well as the results from licensing exams. In March 2003, an on sight evaluation took place. The evaluation is done by three experts, including a person at the presidential level of an academic institute, faculty member from another institution, and a clinician. Their job is to check if the self-study report collaborates with what they find, as well as holding interviews with faculty members, students, and internship employers. An oral report is then submitted and the college has the right to respond to the oral report. A final report is then submitted to a commission, which decides whether to reaccredit the program. The reaccreditation program is a way to ensure that Carroll graduates will be fully competent in the field of physical therapy.

Registering on the Web Student retention rate above average April Lemanczyk Staff Writer
On April 2, approximately 30 students, along with Registrar Brian Boyd and Chief Information Officer Debra Jenkins tested web registration. Boyd said, “Web registration is a web-based module that will allow students to use drop-down menus and use ‘point and click’ features to select their courses and know right away if they received the requested courses.” Full-time students will still be required to meet with their advisors prior to registration, and they will not have access to registration until the student’s assigned day and the advisor has cleared the student to register. Students will have assigned days according to their classification. The actual process of registering takes a few minutes since students have worked closely with their advisor to select available courses and alternate courses. Randy Fitzpatrick, a junior who tested the web registration, stated “It was very easy, and it took me less than five minutes to register. All I had to do was pick out my classes and click on the “add” icon. “The web registration test went smoothly and quickly, so that students can
do it easy and fast next semester,” stated Jenkins. The students had positive comments, according to the web registration pilot evaluations, saying web registration was very easy to use. “The biggest advantage to the web registration is that students do not have to stand in line inside or outside the Voorhees Building to register,” remarked Boyd and Jenkins. In addition to registering on the web-based module, students can run “what-if ” scenarios with GPA projections, for example, running a scenario to see “what-if ” they received an “A” in this course, what would happen to their overall GPA. Students can review their schedules for the current semester, and review grades online. Students can review their current biographical information the college has on record, such as home and campus addresses and phone numbers. Also, advisors and faculty will have similar helpful tools. “While not all parts of the module will be fully functional, our hope is to have web registration available to students in November. It is very important students check their Carroll College email accounts, because it is the way we are communicating to the students about web registration,” explained Boyd.

We need to treat it with the same value as a bankcard,” explained Gary Koenen, Director of Auxiliary Services. The Capital Campaign Project for the summer includes upgrading the boiler
plant in the basement of Ganfield Gymnasium which sends natural gas heat to the Todd Wehr Memorial Library, Main Hall, Maxon Hall, Lowry Hall, Rankin Hall of Science, Van Male Fieldhouse and Voorhees Hall through an underground tunnel loop. Jessen remarked, “It will save energy and Carroll College approximately $25,000 to $50,000 a year and the payback is between five and ten years.”
Diversity/Student Senate struggles with statistics From Page 1
wanted to acquire diversity statistics from Wiseman. This proved to a battle of its own. According to Grenni, Student Senate President Mick Linse initially requested the data Feb. 27, and on March 17 Grenni also personally requested the statistics, but at the time Wiseman said he needed some time to compile everything. It wasn’t until early April that Senate received the statistics they were seeking. According to Wiseman, the delay occurred because
the campus doesn’t have an institutional research office, and he had to take the time to compile everything personally. With adequate statistics to back up their decision, Senate voted 18-3 at Sunday night’s weekly meeting to support a proposal requesting the Director of International Student Admissions become a full-time position. A second proposal has been tabled until the April 12 meeting regarding the implementation of a full-time position for the Director of Cultural Diversity.

As a result of many efforts of Carroll College administrators, as well as faculty and staff committees, the Carroll student retention rate is higher than both the national private and public school averages. “One important thing Carroll has done is the creation of the First Year Seminar Program to aid students in their transition to college-level learning,” said Dr. Robert Black, co-chair of a new ad hoc committee designed to further improve the school’s student retention rate. “We saw some dramatic improvement during the first few years when the
program sought was to make sure that, in most cases, the FYS instructor was also the academic adviser.” Other projects have also been implemented. An alert system was set up, wherein professors notify various offices if a student is not doing satisfactory work in, or not attending a class. English 140 and the math placement exam were also developed to give students an easier transition to college. Lastly, the Study Center is a result of the effort to improve Carroll’s retention rate. According to Vice President of Enrollment James Wiseman, the goals of the ad hoc task force are to increase
retention and graduation rates, although no strategies have been finalized yet. “We need a college-wide effort to make sure that any student who is considering leaving Carroll get just the right kind of immediate assistance and/or help in problemsolving to make it possible for him or her to stay,” Black said. “While there are valid reasons why a student may want to drop out for a semester or choose to transfer to another institution, many times the timely intervention of a friend, college official, professor, adviser, coach, or work supervisor, for example, can keep that student enrolled and making progress toward a degree.”

I didn’t have $700 for a meal plan at the beginning of the semester. But I did have $100, so I bought $100 worth of food points. Buying points in increments gives you 38 percent of your purchasing power, leaving me 38 points. I mainly use my points on nights and weekends, which makes my options pretty much limited to the Pioneer Indoor Terrace (P.I.T.). But anyone who eats three meals per day and doesn’t eat off-campus is more or less forced to eat in the P.I.T. once on Friday and twice on Saturday and Sunday, more than that if they don’t take advantage of the Main Dining Room (M.D.R.) brunches.

Bible Stories 101
May irony be with you William Humphreys Staff Writer The Rev. William Humphreys is the chaplain for Carroll College.
As the season of Lent progresses beyond this publication date, observant Christians will soon be in Holy Week. Beginning Sunday with Palm Sunday and the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem, Holy Week continues through Maundy Thursday celebrations of the Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples, to Good Friday with trial, crucifixion, the cross, death, and burial; Saturday night vigils for some folks, awaiting with eager anticipation the good news that comes with Easter stories of the empty tomb and resurrection from the dead! Irony follows irony. What tradition refers to as the “triumphal” entry into Jerusalem is quite understated; not triumphal with horses and signs of great force, but triumphal on a donkey with cheers from the peasants. The “last supper” is hardly a feast, but the simple elements of bread and wine and, in the gospel of John, a washing of each others’ feet! Crucifixion is called “good” because many Christians believe it is in Jesus’ sacrificial death that the world
Point/Criticizing Falcone not the best way to be heard From Page 7
Counterpoint/‘Joke’ is no laughing matter From Page 7
President Falcone, but the last I have room for, deals with his rudeness to students. To illustrate this point, an example can be given from his first address from this semester. When a student stood up to ask her question, her microphone cut out in the middle of her statement and was then turned back on. Falcone, in his charming manner, (jokingly?) said something to the effect of “turn it back off!”
He laughed while the audience gave him dirty looks. He proceeded to tell the students to lighten up, relax and take a joke. But these ‘jokes’ of his are not funny, and it shows how he truly feels about his students. He doesn’t take us seriously and acts as though he doesn’t care what we think. His addresses are a step in the right direction, but they are mere talk if nothing comes from them and he continues to act in the same way he always has.
President Falcone is no doubt doing what he feels to be best for Carroll, but it is clear that his intentions and his best simply are not good enough. We need a president who can lead us in the right direction, someone who will take professional studies into consideration while properly maintaining Carroll’s small school, liberal arts foundations. We need someone who cares more for the future of the school and it’s students than the size of his wallet.
knows God’s loving forgiveness, and then the overnight vigil of loss and darkness turns into the glorious news of resurrection light! Irony abounds; throughout, good wins out over evil, life over death. Ironies are not new to us. We hear and wonder about going to war in the interest of peace. In economics, we are encouraged to spend money to make money. Now, as a matter of faith, we are in the season of understanding the leadership of humility, the power of sacrifice, the gain of service for others, and the wisdom of appreciating our ignorance. It seems to be a condition of spiritual growth that change happens. I simply do not know any religious system that praises only the way things are. Even the most selfish people we know, who seem to live only for the moment, are interested in increasing their wealth, influence over others and building still bigger estates. Spiritual growth is about change, growth and the ironies that challenge us. Let us also be inspired by those ironies that lead, as we already know they do, to love and care and genuine peace. May we all know the ironies of this season of faith and life!
arts. There are legitimate reasons for some students to be unhappy with Falcone, but unfortunately some of us have to resort to insults (or ridiculous proposals, as if a pay cut for Falcone will save the liberal arts, give me a break), which not only solve absolutely nothing but also trivialize the concerns that so many have. If we want to solve the problem of a student body that is neglecting certain very important departments we need a constructive dialog between students, faculty and adminis-
tration. It’s very easy to criticize the solutions presented by someone else, but much harder to propose one yourself. I don’t think any of the students protesting these recommendations envy the administration for having to make these difficult decisions. Their job is not easy, and if we truly care about the future of Carroll College we will do our part to help make these decisions to ensure it stays strong in the future. Sit-ins and protests might make the local paper or the 6:00 news, but they won’t solve Carroll’s problems.

Adjuncts offer much Dawn Marie Johnson Special to T h e New Perspective
Tuition cost is rising across the country, and Carroll is facing the same dilemma that other colleges and universities are facing. The tuition at Carroll has increased 10 percent since 2001. The buzz about the campus is the administration wants to hire more adjuncts in order to reduce tuition cost. Hiring adjuncts is a viable solution since they are paid much less than tenured and full-time faculty. “Adjuncts are limited to teaching two four credit classes per semester,” said Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Lynne Bernier. Providing an exceptional education to the students is priority, and the number of adjuncts has not affected their ability to provide a quality education. US News & World Report ranked Carroll College 24th in the Midwest region despite the ratio of adjunct and full-time faculty. This speaks volumes to the education students receive at Carroll College. Since each department is responsible for hiring their own adjuncts, an essential quality necessary to become an instructor here is a passion for teaching along with professional and educational experience. Many of the adjuncts bring with them empirical information because most of them practice what they are teaching on a daily basis as their career. They share with the class their experiences. Anne E. Schwartz is an adjunct that teaches News Writing and Reporting, Public Relations
and is the advisor for The New Perspective. She brings with her a myriad of experience from the field. Schwartz is presently a reporter for The Milwaukee Business Journal, former editor of the Waukesha Freeman, and has worked as a television anchor for Channel 12 News. Other adjuncts bring similar experience. John Beris and Darrell Johnson are instructors in the mathematics department. Beris has a masters in mathematics and has been teaching for 25 years, two of those years at Carroll. He has taught at several institutions both full and part time, and he is presently teaching Math 112 in the evenings at Carroll, and teaches additional math classes at UW-Milwaukee. He likes Carroll because it is an “enjoyable environment to teach in.” Johnson has been an adjunct at Carroll for two and half years and has a bachelor’s in atmospheric science, teaches several math courses at UWWaukesha, and is presently teaching a meteorology course at UW-Milwaukee this semester. He is probably best known at Carroll for teaching Math 112. He stated, “I would love to give up the nomadic adjunct life, and land a full-time teaching positions at a college or university nearby, but all of those institutions in this require the Ph.D.” Johnson loves the environment at Carroll and states, “I am treated as an equal not as an underling.” Other colleges and universities use teaching assistants to teach most of their entry-level classes. These TAs are usually See Adjuncts Page 10
From rats to medical charts to adventures with mud, the story is the same. Hard-working students in the science departments complete research projects—some for their capstone projects and others not— in an attempt to gain experience for the future and answer questions about drugs, pesticides, surgery and more. One of those students is junior Brad McMahon, a biology major with an emphasis in physical therapy, who is studying two surgeries used to fix the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the time each takes to heal. According to the Bordeaux-Mérignac Centre of Orthopaedic and Sports Surgery, reconstruction of the ACL is among the most frequently performed procedure in knee surgery today. McMahon explained that one type of surgery done to fix the ACL uses an autograft—a patellar tendon that is taken from the patient’s own knee— while the second type of surgery involves the use of an allograft—a tendon taken from a cadaver. The new tendon is used to replace the torn tendon in the knee. McMahon’s hypothesis is that there will be less pain, and possibly less swelling, in the allograft due to less surgical trauma to the knee. To test this hypothesis McMahon, who has had both types of ACL reconstruction surgery done on one of his knees, has been studying the medical charts of patients from a physical therapy clinic in Appleton. He is comparing the results of the two different types of surgeries and entering the data into a database from which he will make his final conclusion in a few weeks. The research has been tough because all of the patients’ records have to be kept confi-
dential, with the names and addresses of the patients removed. Additionally, McMahon can only look at the records at the hospital where the records are kept. At this time, McMahon cannot say what the results of his study will be, but did say, “Research plays a big part in the science field.” Junior Andy Stickel, also a biology major, is currently doing research as well. However, unlike McMahon, who is studying humans, Stickel is studying the effects of creatine on the hearts of rats. Creatine is a naturally found compound in a human body and is a key component in producing adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is used in many different processes in the body including muscle contraction. Many athletes take creatine as a supplement to build muscle mass and improve performance in anaerobic movements such as those in football and weightlifting. In his experiment with the rats, Stickel said, “The main thing I was looking at was to see if there were any adverse effects on the cardiac tissue as a result of the creatine.” At the start of his experiment, Stickel divided 17 rats into three groups of four and one group of five. Two of the rat groups were trained to run on an electric treadmill and the other two groups were not. One of the trained groups of rats and one of the non-trained groups received the creatine supplement mixed with Hawaiian Punch while the other groups were only given the plain Hawaiian Punch as a control. At the end of the rat training, Stickel will “harvest” each of the hearts from the rats and perform a chemical test to determine the amount of ATP in the heart and then compare the groups to see if there is a significant difference between the groups. Stickel, who received a grant from the
TriBeta Biological Honors Society, will present his results at a conference in Illinois on April 5. Junior Susan Brastad and senior Michelle Riha who presented their research at the National American Chemical Society meeting in New Orleans at the end of March, studied a completely different area of science than McMahon and Stickel. Brastad and Riha studied the mud from a trout stream and a pond on the Greene Property to determine if several different pesticides and herbicides were present. After collecting 14 samples, Brastad and Riha extracted the pesticides from the soil using a Soxhlet extraction method, which takes the mud and runs a solvent thought it to flush out the pesticides. The pesticides, now in the solvent, were analyzed using gas chromatography-electron capture detection (GC/ECD) to determine the pesticides present. They found that all five pesticides were present in the mud, but at very small quantities. This process may sound easy for some, but according to Brastad, the whole project was “cursed.” They had problems with equipment and ordering the pure pesticides to compare with the results of the GCECD. They even had problems with the mud. Brastad laughed as she told of the time she and Riha were collecting mud samples and fell though a thin layer of ice into waist deep mud. Luckily for them the DNR was near the Greene Property and was able to come to their rescue. “All the hard work was worth it,” said Brastad after coming back from their trip to New Orleans. Some of the above students and more will be presenting their research in a science symposium April 30.

students working on their Masters Degree, and in some cases their experience in the workplace is limited. Instructors can bring additional qualities to the classroom by their example. Brenda Eckel, a trainer at Metavante’ Corporation, has been an adjunct at Carroll for eight years and has taught Interpersonal Communication and Communication 101. She brings excitement to her classroom plus a wealth of applicable situations based on her experience in the workplace. Eckel is a graduate of Carroll
and has a masters in communication, and at present, she is completing work on her masters in business. She would love to become a member of the full-time faculty, but for now she “teaches for the shear enjoyment of teaching.” Stabilizing the cost of tuition while maintaining its competitive edge with the other liberal arts colleges in the area, Carroll is making sure its students do not get junk from their adjuncts. The course evaluation is used for many reasons, and one determines whether or not an adjunct stays. If students are dissatisfied with the education they are
received from an instructor they can express their opinion on the course evaluation at the end of each semester. Once again, Carroll is committed to providing every student with a quality education, and hiring additional adjuncts helps accomplish this goal. Adjuncts who teach here, do so because they love Carroll College and the students. They labor hard to make sure students get the attention they need so they can acquire the necessary skills that are applicable in the workplace upon graduation, and go forward to pursue their own professional goals.

Job hunt gets hot Sarah Bonke Special to T h e New Perspective
Summer is fast approaching which means school will be over. With summer comes the task of finding a summer job. There are many different job opportunities for college students in the area if you know where to look. Here are just a few suggestions: If you are a person who likes to work outside, then you may want to consider working at a camp as a camp counselor, as a golf caddy, a zoo worker, a construction worker, or at an amusement park. These jobs do require you to work in all types of weather, though. It may be sunny and 95 degrees but you still have to get up on that roof, or out on the green. Working outside is not for everyone; for those of you who would just as soon work in the comfort of the air conditioning then you probably want an indoor job. A job such as a bartender, working at a retail store, a DJ or bouncer at a club, a server at a restaurant, or at an office would probably be ideal for you. No matter what kind of job you are looking for, employers are all pretty much looking for the same things when it comes to hiring peo-
ple: dependability and someone who is willing to work hard. Many companies however are not hiring as many people this summer; they are cutting back and making do with what they have. This means you probably will have to work longer hours or do the job of two people at some places and overtime not very probable. This is due in part because of the struggling economy. By walking around campus talking to people about where they will work this summer or where they want to look, you may get a variety of responses. A couple of students are going to be bartenders while another person is going to work in the retail sector. One student told me he wants to be a golf caddy at Merrill Hills golf course because he likes working outside (on his tan) and the tips are good. So when looking for a summer job, you first need to ask yourself, “Do I want to work outside or inside” and “What type of job do I want, physical or non-physical.” Most importantly, start looking early. Do not procrastinate, as many summer jobs are filled by the end of April or beginning of May. So get out there and make some money!

The New Perspective
The Glass Menagerie comes to life at Carroll College Elise Kepler Special to The New Perspective
A girl as fragile as glass. An artist wanting desperately to break free. A mother trying to piece together a shattered dream. All this, and more, is portrayed in the classic play The Glass Menagerie, which is currently being presented by The Carroll Players and The Carroll College Theatre Arts Department in the Otteson Theatre. The Glass Menagerie is a memory play written by Tennessee Williams. The framework of this play is taken from the playwright’s life, with particular facts having been symbolically embellished, or omitted in order to give us a glimpse of his reality. Set in a downtown, St. Louis apartment we find a simple domestic family on the surface, who underneath it all, reveals a deep continuous struggle of trying to find balance between the family values of the past, and adapting to an uncertain future.

a painfully shy, crippled, distant girl. She adores her brother, and escapes the reality of her world through her glass menagerie. Junior Kelsey Lexow performs the
role of the controlling and overbearing mother, Amanda. After her disaster marriage and broken dreams, she desires nothing more than to live her dream of happiness and good fortune through her children. Jim, the unfortunate, and uninformed caller for Laura, is played by freshman Alan Wales. The director, Tom Bruno, has worked with several different performances here at Carroll. He is a big fan of Tennessee Williams and The Glass Menagerie and states, “Every time you work on a classic, you hope to be enriched by it.” The unique arena stage constantly keeps the play as the “center of attention” and the stage manager, Arielle McDonald and the entire stage crew, flawlessly orchestrates the entire performance. Performances are in the Otteson Theatre on April 11-12 at 8 p.m., and April 13 at 2 p.m. Contact the Carroll College Box Office at (262) 524-7633 to obtain your tickets.
One word seems to go so well with the hot summer sun and four months off of school: party. And those of you familiar with the area should know that the biggest, wildest, hottest party of the summer can be found downtown at Milwaukee’s Meier Festival Park. Summerfest, the 11-day festival celebrating music, food, and, of course, beer, has some new features for 2003 in addition to the old favorites that Milwaukeeans have come to know and love. This year, Miller Lite, the new “Official Beer of Summerfest” will sponsor the lakefront festival and the new areas throughout the park. A new stage has been added to the South End of the park called the North Shore Bank Landing and a new Marketplace was constructed nearby. The old Comedy Pavilion will now feature a “club-like” setting with various types of music during the day and comedians or music each night. The North End of the park has new restrooms as well as a new ticket building next to the gate. Finally, the temporary Rock Stage from last year has been replaced with a new, permanent stage. Summerfest’s concerts always draw huge crowds,
whether it’s a big-ticket show at the Marcus Amphitheater or a little-known band at one of the grounds stages. Some of the acts slated so far to play at the Marcus include Kenny Chesney, Tom Petty, and Fleetwood Mac. Tickets for these concerts can be purchased in advance through Ticketmaster and include admission to Summerfest in their price. If you’d rather go to a free concert, there are 12 stages scattered throughout the park with musical acts daily. Usually the better bands play later at night, so watch the newspaper or check out www.summerfest.com to find out when each band is playing. As of right now, Summerfest officials aren’t saying much about the ground stage acts. Only five performers’ names have been released, including Weird Al Yankovic, Steve Winwood, and Crystal Method. If these musicians don’t make you want to run out and get tickets, you could always visit Summerfest for their wide selection of food. Over 45 different restaurants will be cooking up everything from pizza, brats and burgers to Cajun seafood, Mexican tacos and Chinese dishes. You can find your favorite restaurants from home such as Cousins, Wendy’s and Arby’s, but Summerfest is a good opportunity to try some great eth-
nic cuisine. With all these attractions bringing hundreds of thousands of people to downtown Milwaukee, it’s important to stay safe. To avoid parking hassles and fighting over who has to be the designated driver, take one of the city’s Freeway Flyers. Milwaukee County buses leave from area Park and Rides every 15 minutes or so and will drive you down to the park and bring you back for just a few bucks. It’s also a good idea to pick a meeting place once you’re inside the gates, just in case you and your friends get split up. It may sound stupid, but the grounds are huge and cell phones don’t work well around all the buildings and people. Simply deciding to meet at the Miller Oasis or by the ferris wheel allows you less time wandering around looking for your friends and more time partying. Summerfest will run from June 26 to July 6, from noon to midnight daily. Ticket prices are $11 in advance and $12 at the gate, but if you’re planning to party for more than one day, take advantage of their 3-day pass for $30. There is re-entry to the grounds for those of you who will need to go home and sober up for a while, but don’t stay away too long; reentry passes are only good until 6 p.m.

Emerson Drive: Who are they? Sarah Lasee
Thursday, April 10, 2003
Bi-Weekly Horoscopes Paula Cary
On April 25, country music group Emerson Drive will be performing in Shattuck Auditorium at 7 p.m. They had some tricky moments on the road to where they are today but after the release of their self-titled debut album in May 2002 they are headed up the charts (three of the songs off that album were top five hits) and making a name for themselves in the country music industry. Three of the six band members, Pat Allingham, Chris Hartman and Brad Mates, have been playing together since they met at a high school talent contest during the 11th grade. As the guys neared graduation they decided to get serious about their music and try to make a living off of it. A few months after graduation they met up with Danick Dupelle, Jeff Loberg and Mike Melancon who decided to join the trio and form a six-member band. The band members all remained the same until in 2002 when Patrick Bourque joined the band to play bass after Loberg decided to go out on his own to pursue a career in song writing. The traveling over the next few years and playing in many different night clubs in Canada was a far cry from the jam sessions they used to have in lead singer Mates’ basement. The band traveled in

the old school bus they named Gracie to both small and large clubs throughout Canada until they finally made their way into Nashville, Tenn. where their big break came as DreamWorks Records, who is lead by James Stroud, offered them a deal. What makes the group so interesting is that each member grew up listening and playing different kinds of music. “There is not a very big country scene in Montreal,” said band member Pat Allingham in an interview given by Ryan Gueningsman a reporter for the Herald Journal. Mates’ musical background consisted of his dad’s Don Williams and George Strait albums and hard rock while Chris Hartman received classical piano lessons and Allingham played the violin in orchestras and festivals and Loberg introduced the band to Buddy Holly, The Everly Brothers and Ricky Nelson while Melancon grew
up listening to Black Sabbath and AC/DC. The original name of the band was 12-Gauge but after Gerry Leiske decided to sign on as their manager they renamed themselves Emerson Drive after the Emerson Trail, which crosses western Alberta and joins up with the Alaskan Highway. The band then hit the road again stopping only for a break at Christmas and for a week during the summer where sadly their bus Gracie broke down and had to be sold. They replaced Gracie with a 15-seat van that ended up being broken into which resulted in $40,000 of equipment being stolen. The band won’t let the bad stuff get them down, said Allingham in a press release “We’ve got the chance now to go out and play for people who will be coming especially to hear our music, and that’s when you realize you’re getting to live your dream.”
Plot intrigues, book disappoints Elisa Neckar Staff Writer
There’s an intelligent book, and then there’s a book that’s so hyper intelligent that facts and references are spilling from every page. The Dante Club, by Matthew Pearl, is most assuredly from the second category. And it’s no wonder, really– first-time author Pearl is a graduate from both Harvard and Yale. It shows in his writing and word choice; both dialogue and exposition are written with a highly educated tone. The plot for The Dante Club is, admittedly, intriguing. Poets and Harvard professors Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, and Oliver Wendell Holmes, are working on the first American translation of Dante’s The Divine Comedy despite considerable controversy. It seems that in 1865, the United States was “a nation with little free trade in thought with foreign countries.” And the controversy only increases when a rash of gruesome murders erupts in Boston–murders, the scholars realize, that are modeled after the descriptions of suffering in Hell from Dante’s Inferno. After this realization, the three professors begin to work with the police,
especially Nicholas Rey, the “first colored man on the force,” to solve the mystery, using their expertise in languages, poetry, and of course, Dante. "Our Lucifer wants his victims not merely to die but to suffer, as the shades do in Inferno," Lowell writes toward the middle of the novel. And Pearl wants his readers to not only imagine, but to almost live through the scenes of death. His descriptions of the murders–especially the first, which involves a man being eaten alive by maggots–are gruesome, gag inducing, and not particularly necessary. The plot is intriguing, the use of characters original, at yet, The Dante Club is not a wholly satisfying read. The first
third of the book (called “Canticle One” in honor of Dante) drags, so much so that normal readers may never make it to “Canticle Two.” In addition, the setting of 1865 Boston has the potential to be rich with detail, but Pearl never makes use of this, leaving the reader totally blind. He should have spent half the time on the scenery as he did describing the murder scenes. The most dissatisfying element of all is the over-intelligent language and obscure references that choke out the plot. Pearl never misses an opportunity to refer to a little known historical event or persona, and never uses a one-syllable word when there’s a five-syllable synonym available. It sends the constant message that there’s something the reader should be getting–but they’re not. Pearl makes a good effort his first time, but the intellectual snobbery that fills The Dante Club will make it too intimidating for the average reader. It’s the type of book that a Barnes and Noble shopper will pick up and read because just to say that they’ve read it, or maybe because it’s on the New York Times’ “Bestseller List,” but they will never understand more than half of what they read.

The bible says that God created the world in seven days, but what if on the eighth he grew weary of it and gave it to the devil? There is a group of people called the Yezidis that live in Turkey that had built their culture on this belief. In John Case’s new novel The Eighth Day he explores this belief through one man’s attempt to find the truth about the death of a local college professor. They found him dead, buried behind a wall, by his own doing. The cops are dumfounded at how a prominent professor of religious studies could be so afraid of something that he would bury himself alive in the basement of his farmhouse. The story continues to grow more tangled as a lawyer contacts Danny Cray, a struggling artists and part-time private investigator to investigate Chris Terio’s life. The lawyer believed that Terio was spreading rumors about his boss the billionaire Zerevan Zebek and wanted to find out who else was involved. During his research Danny discovers that Terio sent his laptop with several questionable files on it to a priest in Rome. When Danny is sent to Rome to find the computer he begins to discov-
er that there is more to the story than what meets the eye. Now running for his life in a country that is far from familiar Danny must put his faith in a man by the name of Barzan, who is also being hunted by Zebek and knows it is just a matter of time before he is found. The pair barely meets before they are forced apart and Danny is left once again on his own. With no where to go Danny heads back to the States with Zebek in close pursuit and just waiting for him to slip up and expose himself. This is where the truth finally slaps Danny in the face as he realizes the extremes that one person will take for money and power. This is a suspenseful story that keeps the reader up to all hours of the night waiting to see what happens next.

Nathan Brunner Sports Editor
Live from the Pio Dome is an editorial column written by Nathan Brunner to express his various opinions about topics in the world of sports. Any comment relating to “Live From the Pio Dome” can be voiced via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the hottest topics of this past off-season for Major League Baseball was whether or not Pete Rose’s lifetime ban from baseball should be lifted. Rose has been banned from baseball ever since he bet on his own team while manager for the Cincinnati Reds and therefore has not been allowed
Fame. He has denied this claim, but the evidence against him is very compelling. There is no reason the ban should be lifted. What he did is close to being the worst thing you can do in the world of sports. Betting on a game in which you are involved just puts so many questions on the table and the credibility of the game is called into question. Not only that, betting on games can cause even the strongest willed of persons to possibly alter a games outcome just to win the bet. This has been seen in the past in college sports especially. Athletes are often paid to keep games close so the point
What kind of a message would MLB be sending to others if after all these years they said the ban would be overturned? This would open the door for others to possibly commit the same types of offenses. The league needs to show some backbone and prove to others they are committed to preventing future betting by managers and players. If they do overturn the ban, I believe we can all look forward to a much weaker MLB. Anytime they say something, it will be hard to believe it because they might just change their mind in the future.

The 2003 Carroll College women’s outdoor track season started off with a fourth place finish out of 17 teams at the Wheaton College Invitational March 29. Sophomore Jenny Prochazka helped to spearhead Carroll, taking first place in the shot put and a fourth place finish in the discus throw. Her shot landed 44’2” to take the lead, the discus landing even farther away at 115’ 7”. Junior Katie Pierce continues her pole vaulting feats with a jump of 9’6” to claim fourth place. The Lady Pioneers brought home a second and a third place in the 4x relays. In the 4x100-meter relay, senior Corinne Handy combined with juniors Lindsey Hanis, Kristin Hubmann, and Sheree Algee to take home the second place finish with a time of 50.10, while senior Jacqui Carroll, junior Abby Daniels, and freshmen Suzie Baumann and Erin
Fondow teamed to bring home the third place finish in the 4x400-meter relay with a time of 4:19.50. Running solo, senior Tami Wittlieff and fellow teammate junior Rachel Gramdorf finished almost seven seconds apart in the 5000-meter run to finish fourth and fifth, respectfully. Wittier ran with a finishing time of 19:58.70, Gramdorf with 20:05.40. The Carroll College men’s outdoor track team claimed 14th place out of the 17 colleges partaking in their season-opener at the Wheaton College Invitational on March 29. Carroll’s 4x400-meter relay team, lead by seniors Richard Raney and Patrick Schuh, with sophomore Pete DaVia and freshman Justin Stigler finished fifth with a time of 3:42.00, while junior Rob Jach finished sixth in the 5000-meter run with a time of 15:43.30. Freshman Derek Kohut finished 8th in the 200-meter dash with a time of 23.59, rounding out Carroll’s scoring.
Wrestle Mania not best ever, but entertaining Ryan Watterson Staff Writer
Once again the most anticipated event in sports entertainment happened on March 30, and most of you probably missed it. Wrestle Mania XIX took place at sold out Safeco Field in Seattle, Wash. This year’s event was raunchier than ever as WWE welcomed the Miller Lite cat fight girls for a guest appearance. The world of professional wrestling attracts a special kind of fan. For those who have stuck with the sport through thick and thin, I think we can agree that this year was a pretty good Wrestle Mania, not the best ever though. For me this year, four hours of straight wrestling was hard to watch. The best matches of the night came towards the end, as usual. Vince McMahon and Hulk Hogan battled it out in a historic match titled “20 Years in the Making,” which Hogan won, therefore he doesn’t have to retire. Stone Cold Steve Austin was pinned by The Rock in a match that featured “the greatest rivalry in sports entertainment,” according to The Rock. The final match of the night was for the WWE title. Brock Lesnar took the title from former
champion Kurt Angle. My favorite match of the night came some time during the third hour of Wrestle Mania. Chris Jericho wrestled Shaun Michaels. They had a heated history that finally came down to an epic battle in the ring. Shaun Michaels eventually pinned Jericho, but not before giving the fans something to cheer about. Highlights of the night were Ashanti singing “America the Beautiful”, Limp Bizkit singing two songs live and, of course, the Miller Lite cat fight girls. They along with Stacy Keibler and Torrie Wilson got in a wrestling match on a bed while wearing very little. Typical WWE smut. Also Rowdy Rody Piper made his first appearance in a number of years during the Hogan/McMahon match where he hit Hogan in the head with a steel pipe. I don’t think this Wrestle Mania was as good as last years. Last year, McMahon lost to his son, Shane, in a memorable contest. This year just didn’t have the excitement I was looking for in a Wrestle Mania. But, I look forward to Wrestle Mania XX which will take place next April at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Spring sports TV schedule heats up Ryan Watterson Staff Writer
Because I am in a land that puts football on its list of most sacred things, I think most people would disagree with me when I say this time of the year is the most exciting for sports. But come on, look at the menu of what’s happening! First of all, the NCAA hoops tournaments that go on. They cause more excitement than any other month in sports for sure. Whether it be the Final Four, the women’s tourney or the NIT, you can’t turn the TV on without catching an exciting game somewhere. What else you ask? How about the start of Major League Baseball? I forgot your home team is the Brewers, but for many people across the country, they have a team with promising hopes. ESPN’s baseball analyst Peter Gammons said the Brewers goal this season should be to “win a couple games and sell some beer.” My Boston Red Sox on the other hand, will undoubtedly fall under the Curse of the Bambino for the 85th straight year. But good news, Derek Jeter was injured in game one. The NBA and NHL are wrapping up their seasons. There is nothing more exciting than the NHL’s quest for the Stanley Cup that lasts until mid-June. Well, most Wisconsinites
would disagree with me there, but go east or west and I know the people are with me. The Bucks are looking to snatch up the last playoff spot in the eastern conference. The regular season ends Wednesday. Michael Jordan and the Wizards are nipping at their heels though. You better hope that Payton trade will pay off. For the PGA, the Masters Tournament starts Thursday, as Tiger Woods goes for his third straight green jacket. The Masters tends to be one of those bandwagon tournaments, where the non-traditional golf fan will watch, that is only if Tiger is still playing on Sunday. NCAA hockey is also wrapping up its season. The “Frozen Four“ starts Thursday, as the University of New Hampshire will take on Cornell and defending National Ice Hockey Champions, the Minnesota Gophers will take on the University of Michigan. The championship game will be Saturday at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN. That’s the spring lineup. Hope you find the games you’re looking for. Hopefully the Brewers can keep their record out of the gutter, and the Bucks can come together and play as a team heading into the playoffs. As for you Packer fans, only four more months until training camp starts.
