Are your secrets safe? Jessi Bauer Staff Writer
The ability is there, but no one is spying on you. For the past two and a half years, ITS has had the ability to view students’ work on campus computers, but they do not use it, said ITS workers Boyang (Romeo) Wang and Scott Fudali. The ability to access students’ accounts came with a software package the college acquired over two years ago to help make updates on campus computers easier and more efficient. The software, called a deployment server, is used to clone all the college owned Windows computers on campus. Cloning is done whenever Windows updates need to be done and can include such programs as new versions of Photoshop or Microsoft Word. In the past, when updates needed to be done, each computer had to be taken apart and the updates completed manually. The whole process could take several days to complete, said Wang and Fudali. Fudali, a part time student at Carroll and intern with ITS, remembers the days of manually fixing and updating computers. He said it was a long process and would not go back if given a choice.
The way the software works is somewhat like a remote control. One main computer on campus has the updates installed, and with the click of a button, all the computers in a specific area of campus are updated. The process still takes a few hours for one computer lab to be completed, but it is much faster than the old way. Now, the entire campus can be cloned in just a day or two. “This program has changed our lives,” Wang said. With the ability to update computers efficiently and effectively comes the ability to view students’ work on campus computers. The main time this is used is when a person has a problem with the computer they are working on. The user can call ITS, and with the users’ knowledge, Wang or Fudali can fix the problem while accessing the students’, professors’, or staffs’ machine. Often though, it is easier for the ITS worker to simply go to the lab and fix the problem in person. Fudali said that although the software speeds up the process for updates, it is too slow and “not practical” to use for individual computer problems. When updates or changes need to be done across camSee ITS Page 3

Delta Rho Upsilon Alumni Association files suit against college Elizabeth Martin Staff Writer
Photo by Andrew Farrell
The Delta Rho Upsilon fraternity house on McCall Street remains empty, but the organization’s Alumni Association has filed a lawsuit against the college to get the house back.
The Delta Rho Upsilon Alumni Association filed a lawsuit against Carroll College Sept. 26. The lawsuit seeks to settle ownership rights with regard to the property where the fraternity’s house is located. During the late 1960s and the early 1970s, members of the Delta Rho Upsilon Alumni Association negotiated and closed the purchase of the two properties that are now known as 124 McCall Street, stated H. Stanley Riffle, the Alumni Association’s attorney, in an interview with The New Perspective. He also said that the association contracted for the design and construction of the house. Fraternity members first inhabited the house
in fall of 1974. “The Alumni Association has paid every penny of the mortgage, every penny of utility costs, every penny of maintenance and upkeep,” said Riffle, who graduated from Carroll in 1977 and is a Delta Rho Upsilon alumnus. The Alumni Association estimates that it has spent between $40,000 and $50,000 on upgrades and improvements. However, Carroll College holds the title to the property and agreed to do so “as a convenience for the Alumni Association.” Riffle said that in 1973, the college assured the Alumni Association that it would be happy to sign over the title to the property at such time as the mortgage was paid off. The mortgage has been paid off, and Carroll See Fraternity Page 4

Carroll adds 58 parking spaces, issues remain

Attention commuters: there are 636 unrestricted spaces available to you during the day. Faculty and staff have an extra 86 spaces to park in before 4:30 p.m. At night, after 4:30 p.m., 745 unrestricted spaces are open including the faculty/staff parking lot on Barstow Street. A new parking lot of 58 unrestricted spaces is located where Cutler Street used to be and is attached to the parking lot of the Barstow Building. Every day approximately 275 faculty and staff and 900 full-time commuters try to find a space to park. There are a limited number of spots, so about 500 people are left trying to find a parking space on one of the nearby streets. John Harbeck, Director of Campus Safety, said, “A parking structure costs around $10,000 per space, and
Driving efforts for more parking availability have created a new series of parking spaces next to Barstow on the former Cutler Street. Carroll College cannot afford it. Also, Carroll is located in a historical district where a parking structure would not blend well with the neighborhood.” The only suggestion to faculty, staff and commuters is
to plan accordingly and expect to walk several blocks to campus. Do not park illegally, because a ticket can be anywhere from $10 to $25 and may result in the towing of your car. Carroll College has
bought all the land they are allowed, so each year as enrollment grows, there are fewer parking spaces available. With these enrollment trends, the problem of parking on campus will never be solved.

Carroll’s new career counselor ready, willing to help Amanda Bothe News Editor
“There is so much more to ‘career’ than picking a job,” said Carroll’s new career counselor, Jennifer Maney. Maney began as a career counselor at Marquette after working at an advertising agency for five years. She left Marquette to do some consulting work and after that came to an end she came to Carroll. She believes in matching an individual’s values with his or her career goals. She poses the questions, what do you want to do with yourself and will that meet your personal values? Maney was very optimistic and is happy to be at Carroll; she likes working in a college atmosphere. She said that she gets the feel that Carroll works on career development through programs. “I hope I have an opportu-
nity to do more career development [with freshmen and sophomores].” She hopes to start working with students early. “I hope to see faces more than once in my office.” Maney will

help you find your talents and your interests and then assist you in finding a career goal that matches those two traits. She wants to introduce students to what real life will be like and show them the diversity the world offers. “The more you’re exposed to in the world, [the more] you
find out who you are,” she said. If you have questions or concerns about your future career or the “real world,” I would highly recommend having a chat with Maney. I found myself completely at ease with her. She feels career counseling meets her values and goals. “Many of my needs are met doing this,” she emphasized. This makes her ready to assist others to find where they fit into the world. “Once you recognize what your skills are, you should share that with the world.” You can find Maney in the Walter Young Center. Her office is very inviting and comfortable, complete with a lava lamp, gumball machine, and a magic eight ball. There is a turtle sitting on her computer with a quote that sums up Maney’s theories on making one’s way through the world, “Without having his neck out, he goes nowhere.”

ITS/No true privacy available on Carroll’s networked computers From Page 1
pus, ITS will usually work after the computer labs are closed and no one is working on the computer at the time. And if Wang or Fudali need to work on a computer while a user is occupying it, they will inform the user before taking over the computer. When cloning is done, updates are done to all the computers in general and applied to all machines, and thus accounts, rather than going through each machine individually.
Another component of the software is the chat capability. This allows one user to chat, or talk via computer, with another user on another computer. Wang often uses this if he observes a student in a computer classroom with a beverage or food near the computer they are working on. Instead of interrupting the class, Wang will simply message the user and ask them to put the item away. Students are also able to use the chat capability, but they have to know how, Wang says. One may wonder if ITS has
the ability to access a person’s account without the users’ permission. No, Wang and Fudali said. In order to access a specific account, the password must be known, and ITS has no access to student and professor passwords. If a password needs to be changed, the user must change it themselves, not the ITS workers, they said. ITS only has the ability to access a student account if the student is logged on. And the user will always know when and what is being done to their computer if ITS is working on it at the time, Wang said, either
because ITS has gotten their permission first, or because the user can actually see what is being done. Fudali and Wang differ in their responses as to if they can view students’ work with the use of this software program. Some students were concerned that they could read their email or see which web sites they went to. Wang said they do not have the ability, whereas Fudali said that while they have the ability, they do not use it. Permission is first needed from the Senior Staff and other college officials before a student’s
account can be monitored. While Wang admits that when computers are networked, there is no such thing as true privacy, students should be rest assured that no one is checking up on them. He compares viewing students work to a bank teller. The teller has access to money in the drawer, but has no reason to take it and would loose their job if they did. The same is true for ITS. “Even if we wanted to, we don’t have the time to see what students are doing,” said Fudali, “And we don’t want to.”

the Democrat ticket with Barbara Lawton as his running mate, for lieutenant governor. Doyle was Wisconsin’s Attorney General since 1990. Doyle’s greatest achievements as Attorney General were huge settlements from tobacco companies and from Publisher’s Clearinghouse for deceptive marketing. The money is now being used to clean up the state’s budget. Doyle worked with the State Superintendent of Public Instruction in creating a statewide Safe Schools Task Force and on school violence prevention. Doyle worked to pass a sexual predators law, and has enforced it to keep them out of our communities. He has increased prosecution of polluters and instituted a background check for handgun buyers, preventing over 3300 convicted felons from purchasing guns. Doyle is a national leader in fighting to improve public health. Prior to being Attorney General, Doyle was a District Attorney, and a private practice Attorney on both civil and criminal cases. Republican incumbent Scott McCallum hasn’t spent much time as governor since he replaced Tommy Thompson, but he was the longest serving lieutenant governor in Wisconsin history. McCallum’s focus for the campaign has been the budget and taxes, two issues he has been working on as governor. His goal is to move Wisconsin off the most highly taxed states list. McCallum was a state senator for 10 years before becoming Tommy Thompson’s gubernatorial running mate in 1986. When he was inaugurated, McCallum summarized his hopes for our state government including lower taxes, improved education, protecting Wisconsin’s environment, helping Wisconsin’s neediest and improving our economy. Despite budget deficit, McCallum has invested large amounts of money into Wisconsin’s educational system. McCallum’s running mate is Margaret Farrow. Representing the Libertarian Party of Wisconsin is Gubernatorial candidate Ed Thompson. Thompson is the younger brother of former
Governor Tommy Thompson. His grassroots approach, common sense and courage should help him in steering Wisconsin. Thompson believes in having more control of your own money through lower taxes. If elected, Thompson would open up the budget and law making processes to public scrutiny. Thompson wants to make private school options affordable for families, and believes in educational reform. Thompson also has a strong stance on pollution control. Marty Reynolds is Thompson’s running mate as lieutenant governor. Jim Young is the Green Party candidate for Governor. One of Young’s priorities is community service. He is especially active in non-violence organizations and causes. Young’s campaign slogan is, “Providing a Place at the Table of Governance for the Silenced Voices.” Young would strive to reform state drug policies, get health coverage for everyone, and foster governmental and social respect for women, alternative lifestyles and the elderly. He also has strong views about environmental protection and restoration. Young believes that there needs to be more alternative public school choices, because not all students have the same learning styles. He would also try to decrease student/teacher ratios. Jeff Peterson is the Green Party’s lieutenant governor candidate. Alan Eisenberg is running for the Reform Party. He is one of Milwaukee’s most famous attorneys, and an involved community member. For 40 years, Eisenberg has been speaking up for the underdog. He has a radio show “Ask Eisenberg.” Eisenberg has held many positions on community organizations, but is not tied to one group in particular. Eisenberg has not named a running mate. Independent candidates Mike Mangan of Delafield, Ty Bollerud of Janesville and Aneb Jah Rasta Sensas-Utcha Nefer-I are also running for governor. Mangan’s principle for running is “The Guerrilla Attack on State Spending.” Bollerud supports referendum voting, and his agenda includes pardoning our state’s felons. Sensas states his party or principle as “The Rasta Movement.”
Fraternity/Association receives offer for empty house From Page 1
College has not signed over the title to the property. According to Riffle, the college has acknowledged the Delta Rho Upsilon Alumni Association has some interest in the property, because it offered to pay the Alumni Association approximately $138,000, the value of the property as shown in Carroll
College’s records. Claire Beglinger, a Carroll College spokeswoman, would not comment on the issue, stating it is school policy not to discuss pending litigation. If the fraternity were to be awarded the title, Riffle said the Alumni Association does not know how the property would be used. He expects the lawsuit will be lengthy.

With apologies to those who have tasted this dish before, it’s a good thing from time to time to review. Here’s a recipe for this cook’s approach to seeking real Truth in the scriptures of faith. (In this case, the faith is Judeo-Christian-ProtestantReformed-Presbyterian-personal, without necessarily fully representing any of those traditions!) It is this author’s sincere and sometimes insistent contention that whatever we might call Truth might be found in holy scriptures in the same way that taste might be found in a serving of lasagna! Yep! Think about this for a minute, or for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. A good serving of lasagna will have a certain taste that results from a mix of diverse ingredients, found much to our delight at different levels of depth in the serving. What’s visible on top, often baked grated cheese, is not at all the same as what’s on the bottom, such as tomato sauce and ground turkey (and/or beef and/or cottage cheese and/ or chopped walnuts!). And in between are different layers of pasta, sometimes laid one way on one level and turned 90 degrees on the next lower level, etc. And there’s more tomato sauce, more cottage cheese, more ground meat for carnivores, more chopped walnuts for the vegans, and a variety of spices as one might choose. So where is the taste? The taste is in the mix, maybe more so at one level than another, maybe more or less from one serving to the next. To be sure, we would neither enjoy it as much, nor call it “lasagna,” if the whole serving on the plate were all one
thing. Who would eat a 3x3x3-inch serving of baked grated cheese? Or a similar sized chunk of boiled pasta, or so much chopped anything? No. The taste is not in any one ingredient, but may be found from layer to layer or from serving to serving, taken bite by bite, with all ingredients contributing to the mix! So too: Truth. Or: Wisdom. Or: Word of God. What is to be “heard” and learned and considered and integrated into our lives and often shared, explicitly and implicitly with others, may come to us from the words on the page of scripture. Sometimes that is a clear, understandable, livable, enjoyable word for us. It may be challenging; it may be encouraging; it may be just what we need for the day or it may seem like more than we can handle today, for example: to be kind and good to those who are not kind and good to me today! And sometimes the Truth of a particular “serving” of scripture may not be on the surface at all. It may be found in some layer of understanding below or beyond the words on the page. Sometimes it helps our understanding of such things to read the footnotes at the bottom of the page of many Bibles. Sometimes it helps to consult the annotations of a good study Bible. Sometimes it helps to check another version of the text and/or to hike to the library and look up a Bible commentary to see how someone else has experienced the passage. I believe that such an exploratory journey through the scriptures of any faith does not detract from any sense of Truth or wisdom or word from the Lord for us. Rather we are better fed by the text, as with a serving of lasagna, when we appreciate the various levels of understanding available to us. Bon appetite!

Missing Convocation aggravating Fall convocation is not happening this year, but we did get a State of the College Address on Tuesday. Oh, but wait, the State of the College Address does not count as one of the two required convocation points; sarcasm overwhelming. Granted, we do care about the State of the College. The New Perspective staff last year would not have had so many interesting articles about our President’s lack of presence and communication on the campus, and the opinions of students if we did not care. Now, back to the issue at hand, the lack of fall convocation. Let’s ponder this for a moment, shall we. The lack of fall convocation this year, well, it has not really been announced, yet, has it? (In terms of communication, it seems Carroll administration
has not gotten the hang of it yet. Perhaps we will get a taste of when this announcement will be “officially” made from the one-day-in-advance e-mail notice we received this Monday regarding the State of the College Address.) What does this mean? Where do your opinionated editors stand on this issue? In short, we feel that the lack of fall convocation is aggravating. It means that all of you wonderful students who skipped out on opening convocation (remember, that one you go to in order to laugh at the freshman being herded in by the men playing bagpipes…that whole ceremony to make freshman feel welcome, but really just embarrasses the heck out of them) will now be “stuck” going to the remaining two convocations. In other words, students have no choice. It will be
Founder’s Day and Pioneer convocations for you. We hope you enjoy attending ceremonies of public accolades, because these two convocations are chock-full of them. It sure is a good thing we were informed so early, that way we could choose and prepare to attend two of the three convocations before the first one passed us by. Again, the sarcasm drips. We all need two points this year; hopefully everyone’s schedules are easy to clear, because for those of us yet to attend convocation this year, the idea of free choice has been thrown out the window. Being cynical, we could say, this has not been the first nor is it the last time the good of the students was not considered above all things. Well, I guess we’ll see you in February! (And maybe this time, we all might even get a seat.)

Politically Speaking/Political leaders need to uphold the law of the land From Page 5
advancing of the second half of this semester, well, how about we all insist that our state leaders stop acting like corrupt little babies and do the jobs we elected them to do? Milwaukee Alderwoman Rosa Cameron, through her attorney, pled guilty to charges of fraud and essentially embezzling over $15,000 of the feds money that should have gone to a nonprofit organization to help struggling families and at-risk children. You know the type of at-risk children that took part in the recent beating death of Charles Young. Rosa initially called the charges a
“racially motivated lynching,” until she and her attorney actually saw the evidence, then the lynching cry turned into a plea for leniency. And you thought our system of justice had flaws. The last time we heard the “lynching” allegation was when Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, then nominee Thomas, referred to the entire Senate confirmation hearings as “electronic lynching.” This clever turn of a phrase seemed to intimidate some of the more outspoken Senate members from aggressively questioning Thomas about sexual harassment charges that were being levied upon him by a former co-
worker and now law professor, Anita Hill. Maybe the evidence wasn’t quite so damning for Thomas as it was for Cameron; he got confirmed she got indicted. Here’s my request, how about if all political leaders who take an oath to uphold the laws of our land, be they black, white and all the rainbow colors inbetween, actually manage to do so. That way they won’t even feel tempted to resort to hurling racist, inflammatory accusations designed to fan the flames of racism in this country as a way to get people to forget that what really happened was they did naughty things and got caught with
their hands in the Coca-Cola, I mean, cookie jar. Finally, so I can try and sleep nights, indulge me for a few seconds more. There is so much wrong with behavior of children who apparently are convinced that violence is always an answer, not the least disturbing of which is trying a 10 year-old as an adult. I understand and share the rage of the victim’s family, but where is the line now? If your five year-old commits mayhem should he be tried as an adult? And if they can be tried as adults, shouldn’t they be paying income taxes and worrying about their weight like all other adults?
Finally, (I’m not kidding now) the next time you wheel into a McDonald’s or ring the Taco Bell just be on notice that later on in life you too can blame such fast food restaurants for all of your ills and perhaps even strike it rich with a fat, juicy lawsuit settlement. I’ll keep you posted as to the status of pending law suits where plaintiffs seek gobs of high-cholesterol dough (the green kind) because various fast food sorcerers stole their ability to “just say no” to Mayor McCheese and Frenchy Fry. Can’t you just feel their pain? Me too. We must be ready for our final essay exam.

How much is too much when fighting the war on terrorism? Aaron Blackshear Staff Writer
Going against popular opinion and ignoring its ineffectiveness, our government continues to fight the losing drug war, pumping billions of dollars annually into a losing cause. The latest tactic is to take advantage of increased national sensitivity to terrorism by running television commercials that imply that casual drug users are contributing to terrorists by buying drugs. This may be true, but few teenagers looking to get high will change their mind by thinking about where their money is going. With the logic being applied here, anything that terrorists can use to raise money should be avoided in the name of fighting terrorism. I am wondering when the commercial
will air accusing potential husbands of supporting terrorism by buying their fiancée a diamond ring, because it is well known that many terrorist organizations have made money using the diamond trade, including al-Qaeda, the group responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks. In this mindset, the entire U.S. automobile industry has blood on their hands for refusing to raise fuel economy standards and thus continuing our dependence on foreign oil. Every American driving a gasguzzling, 3-ton SUV, every commuter who refuses to carpool, everyone who drives when they could have walked or taken the bus is guilty of supporting terrorism, at least as much if not more than the high school kid buying a bag of marijuana. The truth about the drug
A night of overcrowding, sweat, stale beer John LaConte Staff Writer
The other day my friend asked me what there is to do at Carroll on the weekends. I didn’t really know how to answer her question. “There are plenty of parties if you know where to look,” was all I came up with. We then agreed to find a party that weekend. Lons and I arrived at “The Spot” around 10 p.m. Friday. We paid our five dollar admittance fee at the door. We were given a black marker slash across the backs of our hands and a clear eight-ounce cup. When we reached the bottom of the basement stairs, we found ourselves unable to move. The basement was at least 10 degrees warmer and reeked of mildew, sweat, and stale beer. Lons and I stood around for a second and tried to look cool. A guy in a golf shirt and khaki pants bumped into Lons in an effort to get somewhere, then a familiar looking girl followed behind the guy holding both his hands. She was wearing a pink belly shirt and hip huggers. Less than a minute later another guy in a golf shirt bumped into me, he was also followed by a girl in hip hug-
gers and a belly shirt, only hers was sleeveless. “I guess the keg is that way,” Lons joked. Her glasses were all steamed up. I felt like an idiot. As we tried to maneuver toward the keg, we had to keep ducking our heads under the five-foot high beams. We looked like sparrows. The Outkast song “Throw your Hands in the Air” was playing. “I wish I could,” I thought to myself. We finally made our way over to the keg and held our cups amongst all the other hands with cups. I got lucky; the guy with the tapper served me right away. Lons wasn’t so lucky. Three beers and an hour later, the guy with the tapper lifted up the keg, shook it up and down a little, then declared that the beer was almost out. Lons and I were nearly run over by the rush that ensued; luckily, we made it to the stairs. Outside I made the stupid mistake of asking Lons if she had a good time. She laughed, and asked me if all the parties were like that one. I lied, “I really don’t know.” She told me it was no wonder why Carroll was a “suitcase” college.
war is that the American people are dumping money into a fruitless enterprise and taking money away from where it is needed. There are approximately 1.96 million people incarcerated in state and federal prisons in the United States; 21 percent, about 411,000, of these are drug offenders. At an annual cost of around $20,000 per prisoner, taxpayers are spending over $8.2 billion a year to incarcerate drug offenders. With these numbers increasing by the minute, you may wonder where the additional money comes from. From 1987 to 1998, state spending on corrections increased by 30 percent while spending on higher education decreased by 18.2 percent. We are spending billions locking people up for drug possession and college students are paying the price. When the state of
Wisconsin failed to balance its budget last year and cuts had to be made, one of the first decisions was to cut funding to the UW system. In the meantime, the prison system thrives. For all the money spent, has this war on drugs at least been effective? Not in the least. According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, illicit drugs are cheaper and purer than they were two decades ago, and continue to be readily available. Is there anyone who actually profits from the war on drugs? For starters, there are the organized crime rings, which reap enormous profits when prohibition keeps drug prices high. Arms manufacturers supply the military equipment used for anti-drug aid in foreign countries. $452 million of the 2000 National Drug Control Budget went to
supplying Colombia with Blackhawk helicopters. Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., the manufacturer of the helicopters, lobbied heavily in favor of increased aid to Colombia. The prison industry sees a neverending increase in spending to accommodate the constant influx of prisoners. Someone is profiting from the war on drugs, but it is not the American people. There is no end in sight to this absolutely frivolous war unless the American people stand up and demand a better drug policy from our legislators. We are lucky enough to live in a country where we can make our voices heard and help determine policy by voting. Unless we take advantage of that now we will continue to throw money away on a war that cannot be won.
The inconvenience of casting a vote Teresa Dickert Opinion Editor
Many Carroll students voted on Sept. 10, the day of the Wisconsin primary, but not me. I’ll tell you what…I tried. The primary was on a Tuesday, a day yours truly is busy from morning to night with five classes; no time to vote, so I thought. Lucky for my democratic self, my night class ended early at 7:45 p.m. Great, 15 minutes left until the polls close. Perfect. Unfortunately, I could not vote. I clarify, I could not vote here. Did you know that those of us in the College Avenue apartments live in a ward that does not vote in the Campus Center? I found that out…just as the polls were closing on the day of the primary. I now vote, I was told after much confusion among the ladies operating the
polls in the Campus Center, at Whittier Elementary School on East Avenue. Now what I want to know is, why? Why must residents of our apartment complex vote at Whittier, which is further from us than all the other dorms? It seems more complicated to me that each year a student moves to another dorm, there is a chance that they will be voting at a new location, and must reregister at that location. I assume that the other dorms would actually be in wards that vote elsewhere, but by some decision, the ward lines have been drawn to include them here so they could vote in the Campus Center. It is a logical decision to place all the students at Carroll in a ward where they vote in a central location; so why not include those of us in the apartments? Even more confusing is the
thought that last year I did vote in the Campus Center, and I was living in the same apartment complex then as I am now. So did I just not let the ladies at the polls know last year that I moved? Did I vote under the address I had my sophomore year in New Hall? I guess so. Perhaps that is the solution. Do not let the ladies know that you moved. It is just simpler that way. Or, perhaps, now that you are aware, you can sign up at Whittier (if you live in the College Apartments that is). In either case, I do hope you will vote this upcoming election (the midterm election is on Nov. 5). Just make sure you know where you must vote ahead of time, and you will not get stuck in the same situation as I was. Oh, and if you live in the College Avenue apartments, I’ll see you Nov. 5 at the polls!
Pool/Bringing peace to earth, end to war From Page 6
tem, and puts everyone on an equal playing field. The game of pool can bring peace to the earth and an end to war. College students with experience at the game learn the skills to create a better society for us all. But the flawed pool table in the South Bergstrom lounge offers none of these revolutionary experiences. Its unfair balance just reinforces the social discord of our society.
One hole… one evil, aristocratic, capitalist hole… gets all of the balls while the other holes are left with nothing. What kind of lesson does this teach students? Something must be done! As my divergent reasoning has shown, the pool problem in the South Bergstrom lounge is an issue that we can not afford to ignore! So I implore whoever it is who is in charge of such endeavors to fix the table, so the
students may have freedom to live and grow in a world that is free from tyranny, oppression, and discrimination! Or if you don’t fall for my crazy analysis, then just fix it for the sake of giving us something to do on Friday nights rather than going out and partying, getting drunk and throwing up all over the sidewalk in front of the building. Either way, you’re making a difference in the world.
Let’s bring morality back to American journalism Amanda Bothe News Editor
“Read before you write.” This is the single, most important piece of advice Pulitzer Award winning journalist Seymore Hersh gave to me and two other communication students while in an elevator with him after his speech at Strong Financial in Menomonee Falls. He wanted to emphasize that the best reporters are the informed reporters. He said read everything, even if it’s
boring. Thanks to Barb King, Chair of the Department of Communications, I had the opportunity to attend a writers and editors conference on Oct. 15 and Hersh, one of the main speakers, made it worth our time; he offered an entertaining hour of stories and insight into the world of journalism. Using a range of political humor, he kept his audience of future journalists and their professors fixated on his speech.
Hersh began his journalism career on a police beat in Chicago. He said the police background still makes him see everything as right and wrong. He saw morality as a huge issue both in America and journalism. “There’s a right and a wrong,” he said, “You kinda have to be a purist…America doesn’t like rats…We have to change the value system; it’s such a big problem.” He emphasized to only write facts that can be proven
and never to put anyone in jeopardy. “There’s nothing heroic about what [journalists] do…understand the limits of morality,” he said. I’ll admit that when I decided on journalism as a major, I had many ideas and ideals. Hersh brought me back down to earth, but I still don’t regret my decision for a major. In fact, I think I’m more motivated than before to pursue my chosen profession. Hersh had stories to tell, he lived an exciting life in the midst of all
kinds of corporate scandals. I can only hope for a career that exciting. When I sit and think about everything I heard Hersh talk about, it makes me appreciate the ideas of honesty, respectability and fairness; all traits that may be on the downhill in American journalism. Hopefully I and all other prospective journalists understand and strive for these values that make people good and hopefully we can uphold these values in a world that is on its way to corruption.

The Pill: The good, the bad, the ugly Sara Harvey Staff Writer
Today’s woman is faced with the opportunity of choice. Never before in history has a woman had so many choices to make regarding her well being. A woman’s well being depends upon her state of mind as well as her physical health. It’s important to stay fit, healthy and make the right choices. Have you ever heard of the expression, “life is short, get pregnant”? No? Neither have I. That’s why many women choose the “pill.” This seems to be a great thing, right? But should we be rejoicing? According to Sherrill Sellman, author of Hormone Heresy: What Women Must Know About Their Hormones, for the past 40 years about 468 million women in the United States have chosen some form of the “pill” as their preferred method of contraception. Choices for birth control now include most commonly, the low dose pill made with estrogen and synthetic progesterone, which are hormones, a progestin mini-pill, and a progestin injection, known as Depo-Provera good for three months and there’s even the progestin implant, called Norplant, which lasts for five years. Initially, women were prescribed contraceptive drugs for short-term use to help space pregnancies. Now, however,
these drugs are used to “regulate” a girl’s menstrual cycle, eliminate acne, and control painful menstrual cramps. There are women today who take birth control pills from puberty to menopause, at which time they start on hormone replacement therapy. The complex processes of their reproductive lives have been controlled and determined by powerful foreign chemicals. There is really nothing natural about taking the “pill.” What happens to millions of women when their bodies, instead of being in tune with the delicate balance and flow of natural hormones, are instead being controlled by some of the most potent drugs found? The action of the “pill” actually castrates a woman by stopping her natural reproductive cycle, which frequently creates permanent damage to her ovaries, leaving her infertile. Taking all forms of contraception formulas increases the risk of coronary artery disease, breast cancer, cervical cancer, skin cancers, immune dysfunction, liver toxicity, strokes, blood clots, high blood pressure and can complicate pregnancies. Then there are the side effects which include but are not limited to nausea, vomiting, migraine-type headaches, allergies, weight increases, changes in sex drive, depression, head hair loss and facial hair growth.

Get the most out of your meal plan Aaron Blackshear Staff Writer
With the exorbitant prices charged by Sodexho for food in the Main Dining Room (M.D.R.) and the Pioneer Indoor Terrace (P.I.T.), you’ll need a few money-saving strategies to maximize your food points. 1. Eating at the salad bar is a quick way to drain your meal plan, especially if you like big salads. The key to avoiding this lies in plate selection. You are charged for the plate you make your salad on, so choose the smallest one available. Want a really big salad? Pile the lettuce high. You’d be surprised how much you can get if you balance it right. With a little practice, you’ll be able to get the same amount of food that you would have piled on the bigger (and more expensive) plate. 2. Drinks in the M.D.R. are horribly overpriced. If you’re eating with a companion, get a glass of water. Drink
the water and your friend can share their drink with you (free refills!). Taking turns doing this will cut your beverage costs in half. 3. When you go to allyou-can-eat brunch on the weekends, save yourself a return trip through the line by getting more than enough food the first time. If there’s any food left over after you’re full, just take it back to your room for your roommate. You wouldn’t want it to go to waste! Alternating trips to brunch with your roommate can save you both a lot of points. 4. Never use your food points in the library coffee shop. You don’t get a discount, so that two-point latte really costs you almost seven dollars! 5. Never purchase anything bigger than meal plan #3, even if you think you’ll eat more than #3 would allow you. Towards the end of the See How To Page 10

The headpiece should look like a stocking cap and be long enough to cover your neck as well. Step 3: When that part of the headpiece is done, cut two holes slightly smaller than the size of the opening of the Styrofoam cups. You can paint the Styrofoam cups yellow or any color you would like. Cut a hole in the bottom of each so that you can see and glue the cups to the headpiece in the proper areas. Step 4: Cut off the cuffs of the sweatshirt sleeves and use one of them for the mouth. Cut a hole in the headpiece slightly smaller than the size of the cuff and glue the cuff in the proper area.

Winterizing your home Buying a used car could be more unlike with the plastic. At the difficult than you think April Lemanczyk end of winter, you grab the end Staff Writer
Everyone who owns or rents a home needs to winterize it to keep all drafts out. The sections of the windows must be all the way down to begin this process. The easiest way to do this is to go to your local hardware store and buy a container of removable clear caulk for every two windows in your home and a cheap caulk gun. The clear caulk costs about $2.50 a bottle but goes up to two average size windows. The caulk is better than getting plastic for all the windows because plastic needs to be taped to the edges of the window with double-sided tape that sticks to the wooden frame. With the plastic, you must make sure to keep one corner open and with a cold hair dryer on low get all the folds out of it. When all of them are out, quickly shut the corner. The process is very time-consuming. There are many advantages of caulking. For instance, it only takes a few minutes per window and there is no clean up except for throwing out the cans and putting away the gun to reuse next year. When the holidays come around you can still put up static clings or decorations on the windows,
of the caulking, pull it off and throw it away. Another way to avoid the draft is to make sure all the doors are completely shut. A good way to do this is to roll up an old rug and put it at the bottom of the door. In older houses, the house shifts and the doors do not align correctly with the floors, so that a draft is formed at the bottom of the door. Besides a draft, mice have a tendency to come into homes. To prevent them from infesting your home, place mousetraps in the garage near the door that leads into the house. Mice love warm areas so any chance they get they will try to sneak into the house, first through the garage and then to the inside of the home. The final way to winterize your home is to keep the heat at 65 degrees when you are not home. The home should not be really warm when you are not there, but turn it up to 70 degrees or higher when you are there to enjoy it. Several thermostats are programmable; this helps you regulate the heat during the day and night. Your heating bill will not be very high if all winterizing steps are taken before the first snow falls.

You’ve saved your money, you’ve found “the perfect car” to replace your old one, so all you have to do is hand over the money, sign a few papers and drive away right? Wrong! Buying a used car isn’t this easy. There are a lot of factors that play into this major purchase. However, there are things you can do to be smart about the whole thing. Five steps will put you at advantage and save you from buying a complete lemon. So pay attention! Step 1: Search the online classifieds for used cars. Newspapers are fine for local finds, but this isn’t enough because half the time they don’t have exactly what you’re looking for. Find a site with thousands of cars listed. Most car sites keep car ads posted until the car sells, unlike the newspaper, so this is an advantage. Step 2: Once you’ve found the car, get a 30 day unlimited CARFAX Vehicle History Report. Do not buy a car from anyone without running a car title search first. The CARFAX report on a used car verifies that there was no previous branding of
the title, flooding of the car, odometer fraud, salvaged title, or that it was reported stolen. If you buy a car that was reported stolen, you will not be able to get a title for the car, the state will confiscate it from you, and you’ll lose thousands of dollars. Pray they don’t arrest you for possession of stolen property. So run a title search first. All you need is the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). They usually post this with the car. The one exception: if you plan to buy a car made before 1981, vehicle identification numbers didn’t exist. Every car maker had their own format, and each state had unique formats, so you’re out of luck. If this is the case, you should seriously ask yourself why you are buying a car this old. Step 3: Get a used car loan (from a dealer or person to person). Fact: Most banks will not lend you money for a used car that is older than 4 to 5 years old. Banks charge at least 2 percent higher APR on used car loans than they do for new car loans. Online lenders are much cheaper and used car loan rates are closer to new car loans. If you are buying a car from a private person, use the People First
person-to-person loan. They are the only company who finances person to person used car loans. They even provide used car loans for buying from a dealer. You can apply online and approval takes an hour. One site you can use only for used car loans at the dealer is E-loan Used Car Loans. Both of these are excellent and have low APR. Lastly, know how much you can afford before you start looking and never pay cash for a deposit on a car. If the deal goes south, you’ll never see your money again, but you can always dispute a credit transaction. Step 4: Negotiate tough with a used car dealer or private seller. When negotiating the selling price at the dealer, remind them that they paid $3,000-$4,000 less than market value for the car so they shouldn’t be charging you market value. They’ll probably say that you are crazy and the internet pricing for cars is wrong, but just tell them that you shouldn’t have to pay extra money for the car to be reliable for 90 days. It doesn’t matter how much they claimed they paid for the car or how long it has been sitSee Used Car Page 12

How to get a job for the Holiday season Eve Jacobs Staff Writer
Money is short around the holidays. It can be hard trying to find the perfect gift for someone and then realizing that it is a little more than what’s in your wallet. Getting a holiday job might be just the ticket for getting a little more money in your wallet. During the upcoming winter season, many stores are looking for extra help since the holiday season will be busy. Working at the mall is one option you can try. Many stores such as Boston Store, Marshall Fields, etc. need holiday help as the season approaches. Ask at customer service if they are hiring for the holidays. If they are, ask for an application. Fill it out and bring it back. Come back in a day or two and ask if they are still interested in hiring you. This shows that you are willing to
work around the holiday season. Babysitting is another way to get some more money in the wallet this season. Since winter break is long, let neighbors, friends, and relatives know that you will be around this season to babysit. It is good to make babysitting cards out to put in the mailboxes around the neighborhood and to know the hours and times you are willing to babysit during the time that you have off. Do not forget to charge a reasonable amount. Around New Year’s is where the real money can be made. For those who don’t like to babysit, shoveling sidewalks and driveways can get you five bucks or more during the winter season. Not only are you making money, you are also getting a workout shoveling the snow too. Just remember that determination can get you far and a little money is just around the corner!

How To/Save your points From Page 8
semester, you can buy additional points for one dollar per point, as opposed to the one dollar per .30 points you pay initially. Buy a few hundred points this way; they’ll carry over to the second semester. If you have sufficient funds, buy enough points to last the rest of the year and cancel your meal plan once the spring semester starts. This way you won’t be coerced into paying the ridiculous prices inherent to the point system. Remember, if a meal costs three points it really costs you ten dollars! 6. Every year there are a few all-you-can-eat dinners in the M.D.R., usually for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The dinners usually cost around four points, which converts to about $13.20! Most people will never eat 13 dollars worth of food in one sitting, but nobody said it was all-you-can-eat all at once. Bring some Tupperware and take some food home with you. Make good use of the microwaves in the dorms. It’s only fair to get your money’s worth. Sodexho takes advantage of widespread gullibility by overcharging for food and disguising it with the point system. The smart and clever consumer can find ways around their price-gouging techniques. Following these strategies will save you money and prevent Sodexho from taking advantage of you.

Making a great Halloween with graveyard brownies Jill Ridenour Staff Writer
You may think that hosting a Halloween party is all fun and games; well, you’re mostly right. However, in order to have a successful Halloween party, or any party for that matter, the number one thing you need is food. Now, wouldn’t it be nice to have something a little more festive than potato chips and pizza for this Halloween bash? Of course it would. Well, when you think about it, Halloween is about scaring people, and most importantly, eating many sweets without feeling bad about it. So, for a festive sweet treat idea, I have come up with something that will rattle your sweet tooth and won’t take a great deal of culinary skill. I call this treat Graveyard Brownies. Things you’ll need 1 package of brownie mix
Photo by Jill Ridenour
2 cups powdered sugar 1 jar caramel topping 2 large apples or 4 smaller ones 2 cups lemon juice 1 package chocolate cream filled Oreos 1 package of tubes with icing
for decoration (optional) Preparation First, bake the brownies as described on the back of the box. Don’t forget to grease the pan! Let cool. Cut apples into thin slices, soak
in lemon juice for 2-4 minutes, and rinse with cold water. Place slices on bottom of chilled tray or serving platter. Spread caramel evenly over apples. Crush Oreos in a large storage bag and pour evenly on top of
caramel and apples. Cut brownies into equal squares, remove from pan, and cut the tops of the brownies so that they are rounded and look like tombstones. You can get creative here and make crosses or even angels if you’re artistic. Just make sure not to make the brownies too big or else they won’t stand up. After the brownies are cut, cover both sides in powdered sugar and decorate as desired with icing. When brownies are ready, move the apple mix so that the bottom, flat part of the brownie sits on the bottom of the tray, and push apple mix around it to hold it up. Crumble extra brownie pieces and place around the tombstones for more “dirt”. Now you have a delicious Halloween treat to impress your guests. This recipe serves about eight. I wouldn’t suggest doubling the recipe, but instead, make more than one pan using the recipe a second time.

Decorating your room with ghosts Pill/Making that informed decision just got harder and ghouls for Halloween of all the problems that can From Page 8
Melissa Sedlmeier Staff Writer
As you push open a door covered in cobwebs, your eyes slowly adjust to the intense darkness. You notice that you are surrounded by glow in the dark skeletons and shimmering ghosts hanging along the walls. In the corner sits a sensor activated bleeding skull plaque that illuminates the surrounding darkness. Mysterious sounds of darkness and the faint sound of rustling leaves meet your ears and send shivers down your back. You wonder if you have wandered into a haunted house but come to realize that you have entered your next-door neighbor’s room. Across campus, Carroll
students are celebrating Halloween by decorating their dorm rooms with a wide array of creepy décor. If you are tired of dull white cement bricks, read on to spark up your room for the season. To spice up the outside of your door you can purchase artificial cobwebs to hang above the door and tape fake spiders into the stretched out web. On the door hang a plastic cover with pumpkins to brighten the hallway and place a creepy floor mat in front of your door wishing everyone a happy Halloween. To create a creepy atmosphere inside your room, have a pumpkin carving party with your roommates and display your creations in a corner of your room. In another corner of your room, place a
mini mist fogger that will produce a low circulating fog. To achieve this effect, purchase a diffuser unit and place it near clean water. Once you plug it in the fog will start rolling off and into the hallway. In addition, you can choose from a variety of Halloween posters and wall hangings, such as a crashed witch or giant ghost to hang on your walls. Another idea is to hang Halloween lanterns with dark pictures of witches and ghosts to create shadows around your room. To share your Halloween spirit with the people walking outside your dorm, string pumpkin or skeleton lights around the window and place window clings such as ghosts, skeletons, or pumpkins on your windows.
Used Car/Don’t forget that bill of sale, maintenance records, and wheel lug key From Page 9
ting in the lot, the car is only worth what it is worth—not what they write on the sticker. Helpful hint: The average dealer price on a used car is $2,000 over the market value. When buying from a private seller, call the seller and ask a lot of questions. There’s a lot of data you’ll need before you can negotiate the price of the car. So when you call the seller, ask these basic questions to help you make a decision on how much you’ll pay: 1. Why are you selling the car? This puts them in a position where they feel they need to answer quickly. If they hesitate, they usually have something to hide. Why do most people sell their cars? If you have a car that you love, you’re not going to sell it, right? It’s always good to look at every angle. 2. How many miles are on it? The moment of truth comes at this question for most sellers. This can reduce the selling price significantly if the mileage is too high.
Tip: The standard is 12,000 miles per year. 3. Do they have all the maintenance records, proof of tune-ups, and oil change receipts? Not many people, actually, probably no one, will have these things. However, without it there is no validation that they properly maintained their car. Now they want you to buy it? 4. What is the condition of the interior? The seats? Is the dash cracked? What about the paint? Tires? Does the air conditioning run cool? Also, ask if there are any other known problems or needed repairs you should know about before the purchase. When you go to see the car, take it for a test drive and have the seller go with you. There will be questions when unpredictable noises pop up and you want the seller to be there so they can give you an answer. After you have all your ducks in a row you can start negotiating. Your offer should be based on your research and yield the fairest price possible. Tip: Offer what the car is worth based on market values given by car
pricing sites. 5: Complete the sale and get an extended warranty. Once the seller agrees to your offer, discuss the payment options. Cash is dangerous so get a bank draft. With that you’ll have a record that you paid the seller money in case there are problems down the road. Warning: Many used car dealers sell cars with no warranty, or “as is”, which is not what you want. Never sign an “as is” paper. You want at least a 30-90 day warranty or do not buy the car. Verbal promises mean absolutely nothing. If they claim there is a warranty, get it in writing and read it! If you buy from a private seller, it’s “as is”, so get an extended warranty. It will be worth your while. Lastly, before you drive away in your new car, make sure you have the title, a signed copy of the bill of sale, the maintenance records, and don’t forget to ask if there is a special wheel lug key. Now you feel smarter, don’t you? So get out there and impress someone. Happy car hunting!
discontinue your use of the “pill,” these side effects may persist for a long time afterwards. Progestins make their own mischief, raising “bad” cholesterol and blood pressure, distorting sugar metabolism, compromising the immune system and creating masculinizing effects. So it’s no wonder that Depo-Provera should be of great concern to women. According to Sellman, it has been reported that women who use this before the age of 25 increase their risk of breast cancer by 50 percent and for women who use the shot for six years or more raise their risk significantly to 320 percent. Maintaining choice and control over one’s reproductive freedom is the right of each woman. Perhaps, however, it is time for women to rethink the “pill” issue. The change that is needed to stop the exploitation of women’s health will require women as well as health professionals to make new, informed and safer choices. The health and well being of millions of women around the world as well as the health of future generations hangs in the balance. If you are still not convinced, here’s an extensive list
occur if you are on the “pill.” The minor side effects include: allergic reactions, breakthrough bleeding, decreased immune system function, disturbances in liver function, eye disorders, facial and body hair growth, fluid retention and bloating, fungal infections, hair loss, hay fever, asthma, skin rashes, lumpy breasts, nutritional deficiencies, migraines, nausea, psychological and emotional disorders, skin discoloration, weight gain, yeast infections, urinary tract infections, warts and varicose veins. Did you catch that those were just the minor side effects? The major side effects include: disturbance to bloodsugar metabolism (diabetes or hypoglycemia), greater risk of stroke, immune dysfunction, hardening of the arteries, blood clots, gall bladder disease (gall stones), infertility, liver tumors, osteoporosis, breast cancer, cervix, ovaries, liver and lungs, rapid development of pre-existing cancers and progression to cancer of abnormal cells and heart attacks. So ask yourself, would it be okay not to have sex at all? If the answer is no, think about birth control methods that you don’t ingest.

Dear Marie, I’m very attracted to this girl in my biology class. She is friendly, funny, and beautiful. Unfortunately, she is also my roommate’s girlfriend. Recently, I told my roommate how I felt about his girlfriend. He wasn’t mad, but he did offer me an interesting proposal. He challenged me to a game of chess. If I win the game, he will break up with his girlfriend, thereby opening the door for me to court her. However, if I lose I have to streak across the field at the next Carroll home football game. I’m a pretty good chess player and I’d really like the chance to date this girl, but the streaking would be awfully embarrassing. Should I accept his challenge? Chess Challenged Dear CC, Where do I begin? First of all, this girl is not a prize to be won—shame on your roommate for challenging you to a “duel,” and shame on you for even considering it!!! Should you accept? Yes, but only if you have confidence your rooks, knights and bishops will protect your king from being stranded, naked, with no place to go but the 50 yard line. You should also accept if you think this girl will never find out about this duel. If she finds out, you’re toast! If you really like this girl, don’t accept the challenge. If you see a LTR in your future with her, don’t try to capture your roommate’s queen. Leave him be and perhaps he will leave her unprotected, thereby
opening the door for you to come and sweep her off her feet. So, unless you want the world to see your crown jewels, leave the board game at home and look for your opportunity to move in. Remember, “Good things come to those who wait.” Most importantly, keep your pants on—no one is paying to see that. Dear Marie, I have been going out with a guy for a while and we have a great emotional relationship. He’s a great guy. But we have virtually no physical relationship. He never makes advances towards me and when I try to start something, he never seems interested. We don’t even kiss. Is it okay to have a romantic relationship without being physically involved? Not Getting Any Dear NGA, I commend you for finding a guy that doesn’t have a disgustingly large sex drive, but then again, this can’t be good for you either. Let’s face it; a girl needs it too. Check his medicine cabinet. Is he on medications that could affect his sex drive? Well, okay, maybe I’m being a little ridiculous. He’s obviously going out with you for a reason. He likes you for who you are and that is hard to find in a guy. Maybe he thinks of you more as a best friend and if that is the case, he shouldn’t be tying you down in an “exclusive” relationship. Try to subtly address the issue, maybe make a joke about being “in the mood.” See if he gets the picture. The way I see it, is that you have a really good friend, who loves you, in one way or another. Don’t jeopardize a friendship, but decide if you’re truly getting everything you need from him and move on with the relationship from there.

Poetry Corner Mirrors of Thoughts How long will you hide from me, how long will I dance alone here in the dark? I feel your eyes as they address me, and sparkle in my light I feel your bashfulness as you dart from out of the frame, I feel your shyness as we both play some game, complaining to what end yet sustaining we’re friends I feel our apprehensions passing unnecessary tensions, It cripples our words and discords our ripples of freedom. My arms have been empty too long - I know not if this be what I seek. As strong I am, so as weak; as passionate to vicious, and loving to heartless. ‘Where do we go from here’ ricochets and elopes with ‘is this what I want’… ‘What’s only a possibility’ haunts me…it taunts me and my fear… I can’t help but too notice we’re both here, seeking not to ruin what’s us, my dear. Do we wander here aimlessly, yet shamelessly, you and me… blames to each other as we dance in the dark and sparking each other’s flames – only still to hold each other in our flights of fancy? What can be will be so forever if you wish to keep it so, We won’t ever know until we kill it, make it a would’ve been or should’ve been, But I loathe more the could’ve beens….but that’s something we begin If it’s an about time at worst…let me know where to go. …pardon me, for sometimes I feel cursed, Like Boyd if but to burst…parched, for you I’ve begun to thirst…but you’re not the first.

The Keys Aja Nelson
The keys to life are in my hand, for I hold them in my palm; And they unlock more wisdom than even the sweetest psalm. When I think of things that get me down I frown. Where’s the sense in that? When I see something that makes me smile I use that as fuel Put yourself in somebody’s shoes. Swallow your fears, learn something new Do I feel lucky? Oh yes. Simply because I am me. The noise in the world it, gets so loud. Wanting to be in the crowd. But where has individuality gone? Right here. It never left. Tell me who holds the key? And what is their power. They will come to you in your finest hour.
If you see the sky and think you can fly or you smell a flower and feel an inner power, write it down quick and it may be our pick! Have a poem you may be interested in having published by The New Perspective? E-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Poetry Corner” in the subject line and we’ll let you know!

The Red Tent/Learning through life of others Fun, friendly folks make free ride worthwhile The Red Tent From Page 13
Perhaps that is why the second half of the book after Dinah’s doomed marriage and her flight from her father’s camp is noticeably slower. Her life after leaving her mothers is still fraught with problems, changed by love and filled with details of everyday living. Without her mothers, Dinah seems less of a character. Diamant uses this change in pacing and detail to her advantage, showing the importance of Dinah’s mothers to her life and her very being. Some of the women who

she lies dying in the last pages of her book, she sees them: “In the darkness surrounding the shining lights of my life, I began to discern the faces of my mother’s, each one burning with her own fire.” Every woman who enters Dinah’s life throughout the pages of The Red Tent teaches her something and is remembered for it.
acters from all walks of life that somehow seem indigenous to the scene, the exhaling of conversations just enough to part the smoky haze hanging like a cancerous fog around them. The tap (only $6.00 for all you can drink, may I add) flowed endlessly; Miller, High Life, M.G.D., and of course the 5.9 Icehouse to keep the pallet moist and the spirits festive all night. Even a beer bong contest and arcade games, not to mention one of my favorites air hockey, all dispensable even for those who dislike pool. (Uh! Be still thy heart!) The folks were friendly and the enjoyment was contagious, and with the added buzz it was comfortable knowing that we had a ride home. The driver even offered to stop at Jalisco’s, but we had to decline. Beer and pool still equal a good time, and with a free ride home…why not?

The night was one of the warmer this Florida native of 14 years has experienced here in Waukesha, but the company was warmer…all four of them. The five of us were the only party to travel the shuttle to Sharky’s Bar and Grill, but the brew was cold and endless as the laughs were genuine. The establishment had advertised free beer for ladies who rode the shuttle, but failure to acknowledge (or just zero recognition there of ) the fall break brought only my party of five on Oct. 10. The atmosphere was mellow, popular radio-friendly music from even back to the late sixties pumped from the DJ’s speakers, the ballads echoing and dancing among the crack of billiard balls and conversations, the mass eloping with laughter and good times.

Table for Three/A very satisfying experience From Page 13
three beef tacos, beans, and rice for $7.95. The plate was garnished with pico de gallo (chopped tomatoes, jalapenos, and red onions, seasoned with garlic and salt, and mixed with olive oil and cilantro) on a bed of shredded lettuce, both of which were tasty additions to the tacos. The food was excellent, well prepared, and plentiful. Ellie chose the chicken fajitas for $9.95. Expecting a meal for one, she ate lots of chips and salsa before her meal came. The waiter needed an entourage of other staff members to bring out all the plates that held the fixings for the fajitas. It could have “fed a family of ten.” The meal
consisted of perfectly grilled strips of chicken, peppers, onions, tomatoes, rice, beans, guacamole, sour cream, and four tortillas (at least 50 are needed to finish off this gigantic mound of food). We wanted to try the flan for dessert, even though we had no room left. Eve and Ellie even had to take most of their meals home. Our waiter gave us the check and ran away, so we didn’t have the opportunity to order flan. Our taste buds were disappointed, but our stuffed tummies rejoiced. Overall, Casa del Rio provided for a very satisfying experience. Try it some time with your friends. It has a great college hangout atmosphere. You’ll probably see us there!

Pioneers continue to battle through Midwest Conference Bear Milne Staff Writer
The Carroll College Pioneers travelled, Oct. 12, to Beloit for their second consecutive road game. Senior quarterback Brad Dement passed for 255 yards, finding four receivers for over 40 yards apiece on the day. This was an improvement from the 157 yards passing the week before, a game in which only senior receiver Andy Poch had more than 40 yards receiving. Beloit passed for only 196 yards, but dominated the running game with 219 yards to Carroll’s 87. Senior running back Rob Brester managed to rush for 45 yards and one touchdown. Senior fullback Tony Salvage rushed for 27 yards. Protection was improved against Beloit. Dement was only sacked once in respect to the seven he endured the previous week. Against Ripon, the week before, he had been picked off once while throwing two picks against Beloit. Carroll turned over the ball twice against Beloit. The defenses held for
the third quarter allowing neither team to score. The score was 18-15 in favor of Beloit going into the fourth quarter. Sophomore defensive lineman Jacob Bodi managed the only sack for the Pioneers on the day, getting his third on the season (sophomore Derek Dougherty leads the team with five sacks). Sophomore kicker D. J. Otto kicked a 35-yard field goal in the fourth quarter for the final three Carroll points. Otto’s scoring total for the season now stands at 20 points with a perfect field goal percentage. The game was a battle on both sides, but in the end, the Pioneers were defeated 39-18. The Pioneers took on St. Norbert this past Saturday at Van Male Field. Th did not go according to plan, as Carroll was defeated 63-14. The high points for Carroll were Dement’s 235 passing yards and one touchdown, and freshman receiver Adam Fletcher’s 108 receiving yards and one touchdown. Carroll’s next game is Oct. 26 at home against Lake Forest. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m.

Men’s, women’s soccer have high hopes for conference Ryan Watterson Staff Writer
Women’s As the Carroll College women’s soccer team heads into their final two regular season games, they have one thing on their mind, the Midwest Conference Championship. The Lady Pioneers are undefeated thus far in conference play (as of Oct. 22) and have a 11-2 overall record. Coach Jason Bretzmann has been more than satisfied with his team’s all-around play. The Pioneers have had strong help from freshman forward Julia Bell, an all-state soccer player in high school. Returning All-Conference junior midfielder Courtney Fryatt is leading the team in assists this season. Transfer junior midfielder Brooke Crozier has displayed quality play at midfield for the Pioneers. Offense has been the story this season, as Carroll has
scored an astounding 51 goals in 13 games. They are led by sophomore forward Krista Schneider, who is the leading scorer with 14 goals. In fact, she is fast approaching the single season record (15) and the career record (34). Krista currently has 28 career goals. Bretzmann was most impressed with Carroll’s win over the defending conference champion, Lawrence, this season. “They have quality players and are well coached,” Bretzmann said. Carroll was victorious over Lawrence 3-1. Carroll’s pre-season goal was to go to the conference tournament. With an undefeated conference record, it looks like their goals are a lot more than just making the tournament. The top four teams in the conference make the tournament. Last year, Carroll went 9-6 overall, missing the tournament by one win. Their previous appearance in the conference tournament was in 1998 when they won the title. Competition in

Any comment relating to “Live From the Pio Dome” can be voiced via email to email@example.com.
With the Milwaukee Bucks 2002-03 regular season about a week away from getting underway, I am sensing a very different feeling about the prospects of the season than at the start of last year. The reason for this is almost certainly because the Bucks just missed getting into the
National Basketball Association Finals two seasons ago and last year they crashed and burned while failing to make the playoffs. Last year, all Bucks fans carried the feeling that last year was going to be the year when the team made it back to the finals and won. Well, I would be surprised if that feeling was being carried around by anymore than about 10 fans with this season about to begin. As with most any sports teams (except for the Brewers whose bandwagon seems to have lost all four wheels and is stuck stranded about 10 years See Pio Dome Page 18
