Wind-Swept Victory Lady Pioneers capture championship

Taylor Alward

As scores started to jump it looked as though the lead might disappear, but thanks to a great round by Angelina Parrinello the Lady Pioneers kept the lead and, eventually, gained two strokes. Parrinello’s 87 was only one stroke worse than her 86 the day before and was the best score on the day. “I was happy that I kept it consistent and didn’t jump too much,” Parrinello said. The Pioneers took a 21 stroke lead into day three looking to repeat as Midwest Conference champions. Parrinello gave Carroll another stellar round shooting an 88, which was 4th best on the day. Zuleger fought back from a tough second day to post an 87 and finish third on the day. Carroll would gain nine more strokes on the field to end up 30 strokes ahead of Illinois College and 38 ahead of Grinnell. Behind the impressive play of Parrinello and Zuleger, the rest of the Lady Pioneers also played well. All six members for Carroll finished 25th or better. Zuleger finished 2nd overall (78-93-87) followed by Parrinello (86-87-88) at third. Erin Sullivan finished tied for 6th (91-101-91). All three were honored as all-conference performers. Carroll freshman Lauren Felton (93102-91) missed top-ten by one stroke. Dominique DeMatteo (89-100-104) finished 19th and Amy Wareham (104-96111), the only Pioneer to decrease her score in the second round, finished tied for 25th. Besides the three All-Conference performers, Carroll coach Dave Andrews was voted conference Coach of the Year by his peers. “That was a huge surprise,” said Parrinello. “We weren’t expecting that. We are really happy for him.” By winning the conference championship, Carroll received an invitation to play in the NCAA Division III Championship May 10-13 in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.

The Carroll University Lady Pioneers captured the 2010 Midwest Conference Women’s Golf Championship at Aldeen Golf Club in Rockford, Ill. The women’s golf team took first place in the Conference Championship with a score of 1077 in the three day tournament. Carroll won the tournament by 30 strokes over Illinois College. “We knew we had a good chance of winning it,” said Carroll sophomore Angelina Parrinello. “We just needed to put up good scores and shoot our best.” After the first day of competing, the Lady Pioneers ended the day up by 19 strokes shooting a team total of 344. “We started out really strong,” said Head Coach Dave Andrews. “We played well under our average.” After the first day, Carroll made sure to stay focused and not think that hoisting the conference championship trophy was going to be easy. “Thinking about winning was in the back of our minds. We knew anything could happen,” said Parrinello. “The girls didn’t think they had won it [after day one],” said Andrews. “Last year, after day two, we went in with a 48 stroke lead and we gave 22 back and only won by 26. They knew they could give back 20 shots.” Day two saw the weather change dramatically as high winds caused scores to rise across the board. After shooting a 78 in her first round, the day one leader, Carroll freshman Morgan Zuleger struggled on day two posting a 93. “The wind got to my head and I played awful,” said Zuleger. “I got off to a horrible start and just couldn’t adjust. I had problems with my putting, I was three putting everything.”

The Water Utility has scheduled a public meeting Monday October 18 at City Hall to discuss the city’s request for a Great Lakes water supply. City staff and consultants who participated in studies recommending the purchase of water from Lake Michigan will answer citizens’ questions during an open house and at a separate panel discussion. The open house is scheduled from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.; the panel discussion immediately follows in the Common Council meeting room.

Editorial Staff Police Blotter Recap 10-02-2010 – 11:03 p.m. – Two Carroll University female students were reported running around topless; however, when police arrived in the 100 block of Cook Street, the only people walking outside were fully clothed. 10-09-2010 - 11:37PM - A man wearing a red cape and a mask started chasing a woman who was driving a car in the 200 block of West Roberta Ave. The masked man was gone before police arrived. 10-10-2010 - 11:24PM - A woman was advised about clothing requirements after she was found waling through the parking lot at Waukesha Public Library without any pants. The woman told police she was at a bar when the button on her pants popped off. She said she was unable to walk while holding the pants up. The location of the pants was unknown. – Waukesha PD

Woodman’s eyes area On the eve of opening its second mega-supermarket in the Milwaukee area, Woodman’s Food Market has its eye on another location: the Waukesha area. The company also has worked on securing land for a store in West Milwaukee, southeast of Miller Park,

but negotiations there have stalled, said Clint Woodman, vice president of the Janesvillebased company. Woodman’s stores are open 24 hours. The stores accept cash, checks and debit cards, but they do not accept credit cards. – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Connecting to Milwaukee would cost an estimated $164 million, according to the city’s application. The application did not disclose that hooking up to Oak Creek is estimated to cost $261 million. A Racine connection, due to the longer distance, would cost an estimated $312 million. On Sept. 21, the state Department of Natural Resources restarted its review of the city’s application. The agency’s decision came after it received the Oak Creek and Racine connection costs, and after the Waukesha Common Council reaffirmed its decision that there is no reasonable water supply alternative other than Lake Michigan available to the city. Wisconsin and each of the other seven Great Lakes states must approve the city’s application, under terms of a Great Lakes protection compact, before Waukesha could buy water from a supplier. If the request is approved, the city would abandon several deep wells drawing water contaminated with radium from a sandstone aquifer.

Wal-Mart Supercenter on 164 new rival for nearby target Marty Pitzer Staff Writer

Where Cretex Concrete, a concrete pipe manufacture, used to stand will be Wal-Mart Supercenter. The new store will have 184,100-square-foot combined supermarket and retail space. This new Supercenter is located at West and 164 and will replace the old Wal-Mart at W226s1500 State Road 164, which is scheduled to close by the end of October. Another Wal-Mart Supercenter is set for 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 27 on Moorland Road in Muskego. The Waukesha store’s grand opening has yet to be announced, however, the store will open before Thanksgiving according to current Highway 164 employees. Preparation for closing the existing store is evident in markdowns on items to prevent major relocations for the older inventory. Shoppers will no doubt benefit by these savings, especially as the time draws closer to closing. Furthermore, 234 employees may transfer to the new store in addition to approximatly 150 new jobs the Supercenter would add to the area. Mark Weatherhogg, manager of the existing Wal-Mart along Highway 164 in the town of Waukesha, said his customers and employees have expressed excitement about the prospect of a Supercenter. While nothing official has been arranged, Associate Director of Public Safety John Harbeck said students might be able to visit the Supercenter via shuttles. “It’s a definite possibility. We could make a loop that goes through that area so students could go shopping,” he said. Road construction is taking place at the same time to accommodate the projected increase in traffic to the south side of the city. As a result, roads are being widened and improved traffic control installed. “The [old] store is so disorganized so it would be nice to see how they correct that problem when the new store opens. It also makes sense that WalMart is expanding to the south end of town seeing that Target opened their new store this year just a mile away,” said Jessica Ramsay, a Waukesha resident.

OPINION

Letter to the Editor: The lack of the Mac’ Dear Carroll, Answer me this, why does a school that awards $49 million in financial aid and have 3,500 students only have ONE computer lab that is completely Macintosh computers? Carroll needs to step up its game and create another Mac lab on-campus. Not only is there a graphic communication major along with numerous types of minors, but there is a photography major and minor that REQUIRE work to be done via Mac computers. For most classes in these majors and minors, it is way easier to do things on a Mac versus a PC. This has become such a major problem and complaint. Whenever a student needs to get into lab to work on a project, he or she cannot. The lab is always in use. If you are a commuter and the lab is in use, what are you suppose to do? There is no schedule posted, and the

only times when they lab is open is when there is not a 2 or 3 hour class which is almost never! I cannot understand why we cannot get another lab or even just convert some Mac computers. It is good to have some PCs, BUT it should be more of a 50-50 ratio and not a 90-10 ratio. It almost forces students who need certain Mac programs to go out and purchase a program that they will only use once. If you are in an Intro to Graphic Communication class, you will be asked to create a project using Adobe Creative Suite programs like InDesign and Photoshop. It is easiest to complete this on a Macintosh computer since that is what the class is taught using. Saving work on a Mac and then trying to work on a PC is hard, and then you have different commands that make simple things like downloading a font take twice as long.

If you take a video production class, you are taught to use Final Cut Pro. This program is ONLY on the computers in the Mac lab. If you do not work on the same computer throughout the project, you risk losing all your work. The process of uploading and editing a video can take hours. When you are asked to create a longer video, then you need time to work on it constantly, which is hard because the lab is always busy and never unoccupied. The need for Mac computers is evident! We as students have been complaining yet nothing has happened. All we ask, if for a few more Macs. Since you are using our tuition dollars to help better the school, couldn’t’ we at least invest in another Mac lab on campus? Sincerely, BIG MAC

Point Counter-Point: Paying for vandalism students should pay up

explain the mystery

Students who live in campus-owned housing, whether that is a traditional residence hall or an apartment complex, treat their living space as their home, especially if they live fair away from Carroll. When vandalism occurs within this community and the person who committed the act is not known, it is the duty and the responsibility of the Office of Residence Life to charge all the residents who live in the community for the vandalism. This issue has come under heavy criticism in the past few weeks within the Bergstrom Complex. While some may argue that this is not fair because people who were not connected to vandalism are being charged for it, I must argue against this claim because it is indeed the only fair and just way to handle the situation. The Office of Residence Life is not going to let the vandalism remain on the property and once it is removed, they are certainly not going to be the ones to foot the bill. Since the residents are the ones who occupy the residence, it is their responsibility to cover the cost. But we as students naturally will try to find a counterexample to try and stop Residence Life in their tracks. Here are some common reasons why people think they should not be charged: It was not a resident who vandalized the hall. This argument is not valid. If it is known that it was not a resident who vandalized the property, then a resident of that hall knew that vandalism was committed and did not report it and was not being responsible. Nobody knows who vandalized. The unfortunate truth behind this is that if it was not a resident who vandalized and nobody knows who vandalized the property, then it is still your responsibility to cover the cost. You cannot prove that it was one of us. For all the work that Residence Life does for the residents of Carroll, I would hope that people would not be using this excuse to the RA’s or the AD’s. Your residence on campus is your home and whether you like it or not, someone is going to have to take responsibility. On move-in day of your first year at Carroll, each student had to sign an agreement with the University stating that they read and will comply with the Student Code of Conduct. One section of the Code of Conduct states that, “Sanctions such as suspension, probation and community restitution are not regarded as punishments or controls but rather as educational devices to assist the student in attaining the maturity required to live in society.” (page 54, section V. I. 6.) The incident in the Bergstrom Complex is no exception to this rule.

I understand charging a group for the actions of an unidentifiable individual. It’s an efficient way to repair damages and, potentially, catch the culprit. It also helps prevent future issues. What I don’t understand is how someone can be fined for something they’re not even aware of. I don’t like the fact that I have to pay for someone else’s stupidity, but I understand it. I live in South Bergstrom, and I want it to be nice, and if I have to pay a little bit to keep it that way, fine. What I don’t understand is why I’m being charged for something I never knew about. I got an e-mail about the vandalism to the building, but aside from that, I’m clueless. I never noticed any, and none of my friends have noticed any. Am I saying there wasn’t any? No. I’m saying I’d like to know what the vandalism was before I have to hand over my own money for it. Right now, I’m essentially paying for something that could be a lie. I have reasonable belief that it’s not, but I have reasonable doubt that it is. If I’m going to be charged for someone else’s mistakes, I feel I at least have a right to know what it is I’m being charged for. At this rate, I’d rather pay a general ‘vandalism’ fee at the beginning of each semester. I’m still being charged for a vague description, but at least it’s an expense I’m aware of ahead of time. Right now, I’m being charged for something I couldn’t expect and something I can’t even be sure happened. I’m willing to pay my share of the fees. Everyone in the building should. As the e-mail said, it’s our home. I just want to know what I’m paying for.

If I’m going to be charged for someone else’s mistakes, I feel I at least have a right to know what it is I’m being charged for.

PioDome: Just let the Refs call the shots Josh DeGrasse-Baumann

Editorial Staff When’s the last time you argued with a call in a sporting event? I’m guessing it’s fairly recently. I know fans are passionate, and that’s a positive thing for sports, but there’s a difference between passion and stupidity. Sports officials go through tons of training and make calls under enormous pressure. Imagine 20-60 thousand people demanding a call that lasts only fractions of a second go exactly their way. Would you have to make it?

Odds are you wouldn’t. Not without training, at least. A baseball umpire at home plate has to call about 300 pitches each game. That’s 300 balls or strikes. Each pitch lasts less than a second, and each call could make or break an at-bat. Still, umpires are right on about 90 percent of the calls. Sure, 10 percent of 300 is 30 pitches that they blow. That’s bad, but it’s better than the average person would do. I’m not saying you can’t be unhappy about a bad call. I’m just asking that the next time you are, you give the umpire the benefit of the doubt. The number of

umpires who intentionally screw teams is virtually zero, and they are eventually weeded out anyway. Opinions on instant replay aside, sports officials are good at what they do. They wouldn’t have their job otherwise. They just happen to have to do their job in front of thousands of people. I guarantee you make mistakes in your job. In fact, you probably make mistakes at about the same rate as sports officials. Everyone is human. Humanity is about mistakes. Mistakes happen. We avoid them when we can, but, when we can’t, get over it.

The best of cars and the worst of cars... Tina Ljujic

Editorial Staff

Best car: Greg Riegel In the New Perspective’s search for the best car at Carroll, Greg Riegel topped the list. Riegel, a commuter from Brookfield, is the owner of a yellow 2005 Corvette. After losing his mother in a car accident, as well as losing his job at a manufacturing company due to downsizing, Riegel decided it was turn to the next page in life. “I decided to buy the corvette and go back to school,” said Riegel. “I know my mom would have wanted me to live my life.” He bought the car used from the previous owner in California, and drove there to pick it up. The car is almost complete-

ly stock, except for a few changes to the stereo and sound system. The previous owner also upgraded to better rims and tires. “I’ve always liked Corvettes,” said Riegel. “I like the shapes and lines of them.” Riegel’s Corvette is eye-catching, without a doubt, and receives attention from passersby on the road, as well as on campus. He has owned the car for about a year now, and does not have a plan to repaint it or make any more modifications. Riegel is currently enrolled as a fulltime student at Carroll, and is pursuing a degree in nursing.

Worst car: Heather Markovich Heather Markovich, a senior at Carroll University, is the owner of a 1995 Jeep—a car that The New Perspective is declaring as the worst car on campus. Markovich said her grandparents, who own a car dealership, gave her the car as a gift after she received her driver’s license. “I think the previous owner didn’t take care of it at all,” said Markovich.”A mechanic told me it had the rustiest motor he’d seen in 25 years.” Markovich said that Jeeps typically run hot, and that this problem has definitely been an issue for her car. She said the temperature gauge is always on the verge of entering the red zone, and she has to refill the coolant about once every five trips. “I have to drive with the windows

down and the heat on high, just to keep it cool,” she said. The car once over-heated on the freeway, and Markovich said she lost her power steering and brakes. Her car shut off completely after she pulled off the freeway. In addition, the battery has died three times, and the alternator broke on a recent trip to Milwaukee. The hood does not stay shut completely, and even opened and flew up on the freeway once. The windshield wipers skip over a section of the glass on the driver’s side, and a part of one of the wipers flew off and hit Markovich before flying back out of the window. Markovich hopes to get a new car after she graduates from Carroll in December.

As Homecoming rolled into place, so did classic events such as karaoke, themed dress- up days all week, the infamous Powderpuff football game (and now Powderbuff volleyball), and of course the “Yell like Hell” pep rally; just to name a few. At each event the numbers were many and the smiles were plenty. But alongside the numerous festivities throughout Homecoming week at Carroll there lay a restless air of competition. Behind the marketed fun of each event, a secret battle for homecoming points is waged between student organizations. Throughout the week, various members from each student organization sent as many participants as they could muster to gain points for their team. Several Homecoming events, such as karaoke and the volunteer opportunity at the Hope Center, are participation based and therefore herald some “interesting» performances. Other events, namely the “Yell like Hell” Pep rally, are based more on performance. The “Yell like Hell” performances feature each student organization performing whatever dance or skit they could best come up with in association with this year’s Homecoming theme: game shows. References ranged from various family feud reenactments to completely invented but cleverly conceived game shows of student’s own creation. At the height of the Homecoming hype, just before the big Homecoming game versus Lake Forest, the final Homecoming event took stage in the streets around Carroll. This year’s Homecoming theme made way for spectacular “Wheels of Fortune,” artifacts reminiscent of “The Price is Right,” numerous “Jeopardy” references and even “Survivor” themed island shrubbery. The excitement of this event could only be dwarfed by the anticipation felt as all eagerly awaited the announcement of this year’s winning organization. With Carroll already in the lead over Lake Forest by half time, everyone was already in high spirits. Finally, alongside the announcement for this year’s Homecoming prince, princess, queen and king, the announcement came over the loudspeakers. In third place came Anime Club, in second Student Senate and in first place the Delta Rho Upsilon fraternity. Whether excited or disappointed by the result, students from each organization were relieved that their hard work was over, and knew that in the end, it’s not so much the end result, but the journey that is most fun.

Bobanna’s: Finally, a pizza that delivers Peter Chavey Staff Writer

If you’re looking for some quality food in Waukesha, Bobanna’s is sure to deliver. The small restaurant has wonderful pizzas and Italian style sandwiches, as well as appetizers, desserts and a modest list of Mexican foods. For example, their cheesy bread is an unusual take on cheese bread; made with the same dough as their pizzas, it’s worth a try. The pizzas are all of the thin crust style, but don’t have the trouble of being so crispy that they burn when cooked. The toppings seem to be of good quality, and they don’t hold back with the cheese. The dining area, while small, is always clean and rarely crowded, with music in the background. The lack of bodies shouldn’t be taken as a lack of interest, though, as Bobanna’s offers both carryout and delivery services; which can be nice if you can’t find a friend with a car.

The restaurant atmosphere is relaxed; you can take your time choosing what you want or order right away. The employees are always happy to help, and can answer any questions you have about specifics of any of their dishes. Expect a wait for your food, however, because everything is prepared after you place your order. The prices are low enough to compete with the popular fast food spots all over town, and the quality is a step above the rest. They also reward you for being a return customer, as every five times you spend $10, they will give you $10 off your next visit; just ask about their Rewards Club. Bobanna’s is located at 1403 Summit Avenue, approximately six minutes by car from campus, and has a website with their full menu: www.bobannas.net. You can place orders in advance or get delivery at 521-3300.

Sketchy Entertainment with the WKUK Andy Bottom Editorial Staff

The American culture is constantly on the go lately. Because of this lifestyle change, the entertainment industry has seen a shift in change, too. Due to our busy schedules, if we miss “our show”, there are no worries because we can just stream them online. But there are new television formats emerging. Television shows traditionally contain developing plotlines. But now, shows in which the plot is terminated and instead contain multiple, quick sketches are growing in number. And these are shows that you have probably heard of. Saturday Night Live, Monty Python, MadTV, and Robot Chicken are all shows that use this sketch comedy format. The Whitest Kids U’ Know (WKUK) is one of the newer sketch comedies that started to grow in popularity by 2007. The Whitest Kids U Know got a huge growth in viewership thanks to a handy little outlet called

the internet. Video streaming sites, such as Youtube, proved to be a perfect source for enthusiastic entertainers looking for a way to get their content out to the world. And since sketch comedy is just a series of short few minute clips, the duration seemed to be just right for the average web surfer. But WKUK has managed to stand out from the rest. The WKUK sketches tend to contain subject matter that almost explicitly can’t be described in a college newspaper. But rest assured, once you see them, you’ll truly appreciate the brilliance of WKUK. Sketch comedy has many benefits. Since the shows are made up of multiple

little sketches, the writers can jam each sketch with jokes, and when the jokes run out, the sketch can end and move on to a completely different setting. But there are, of course, lots of risks as well. The material needs to be good and capture the attention of the audience. If the material is un-relatable, then the sketch artists will be stuck in the vast void of Youtube. “Sketch comedy has given us some of

this country’s greatest comedians, such as Bill Murray, John Candy and John Belushi. From SCTV, a relatively unknown sketch comedy group from Canada, to Saturday Night Live (arguably the most well-known sketch group ever), sketch comedy has graced us with insurmountable laughs and side stitches,” said Nathan Ridgway, a sketch comedy enthusiast. Indeed, many of the big name comedy stars on television and in movies first had their start in sketch comedies. This is why many people think that sketches are a perfect way to get their name out there. This is what happened with the WKUK. “Trevor Moore may be one of the best sketch comedy writers of our generation,” said avid WKUK and TV Sketch watcher Chad Livingston. Moore is one of the five actors who performs the WKUK sketches. And on top of that, he is the founder and writer for WKUK. He was the one who formed this “do-it-yourself ” group and made WKUK success story. There are many users on webstreaming sites, such as Youtube, who are trying to break the glass ceiling and get their content out to the world in hopes of attracting a fan base, and even fame. So if you have some extra dough laying around, upgrade to digital cable and watch the Whitest Kids U’ Know comedy sketches, (if not, you may have to settle with watching for free on the interwebs.) Whatever the case, you’ll soon appreciate the magical entertainment that is sketch comedy.

2010: Another great year in music Mitchell Mittelstedt Staff Writer

Some people are quick to say that new music sucks, that it all sounds the same, that we’re all fed it by the industry. Don’t listen to “some people,” because what they say is drivel. Not all music is the stuff we hear on the radio, and some of the best is the stuff which never gets played on the radio. Luckily, I’m always digging around the underground chambers of music, and here are three great relics from this past year: “Patagonian Rats” by Tera Melos I reviewed this album not too long ago. It is not difficult for me to say right now that this album is perhaps the most innovative and sophisticated pop album released all year. When thinking of pop music, most people think of rather simple music with infectious hooks. Patagonian has the infectious hooks—everywhere— but anyone who enjoys the intricacies of complex music through headphones will find much enjoyment in the album’s pyro-

technical fireworks—also everywhere with hordes of weird chord progressions, tons of odd time signatures. The band experiments with everything but always keeps things fun and accessible. “Cosmogramma” by Flying Lotus Flying Lotus has been amassing over the years much acclaim as a producer of music. He began his career with an album called “Los Angeles,” a suitably urban album with slick beats and sick melodies. People began to say he was the new Massive Attack, but he’s been making a name for himself. With Cosmogramma, he has furthered his musical repertoire into the universes of jazz. Where earlier material was almost exclusively electronic music, here we also get analog moments of orchestral beauty—most notably harp, reminiscent of his aunt Alice Coltrane’s celestial music. “Strange Tourist” by Gareth Liddiard Strange Tourist is composed of only Gareth Liddiard’s raw vocals and acous-

tic chords. Liddiard could be traced back to an Australian band The Drones, a band which described itself as “The Birthday Party kicking the $#!7 out of Neil Young in Hendrix’ garage.” That visceral honesty is here, but in a very stripped-down fashion. Don’t expect acoustic pop songs averaging around three minutes in length—this guy has some tough stuff to tell you, musical journeys lasting mostly about eight minutes—the last song is even 16 minutes. There are passages of supreme splendor just as there are torrents of discordant nightmares, all hand-in-hand with lyrics whose only competition are those by Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.

A walk to raise funds for Bryon Riesch

Marty Pitzer Staff Writer

With the temperature in the low 40’s and a northwesterly wind at 10-15 mph, it was a cool Sunday morning where 310 people converged on Carroll to take part in the First Annual Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation 5K run/walk. People of all ages: from over 70 to younger than 10 years old participated in the run/walk. Dan Albrechtson, 69, Waukesha, used a three wheeled walker, told me he is a 1964 graduate from Carroll and enjoys participating in events Carroll has to offer. One of the groups that registered was from the south Burgs said they wanted to represent their residential hall and went as far as to make matching tye dye tee shirts just for this event. Whatever the case maybe that brought people to this event, it is clear that it is deep passion people have for this cause. Bryon Riesch, paralyzed from his chest down after a devastating accident, has worked with Carroll University’s health sciences programs and has benefited from relationships developed with students and faculty. Carroll students in the health sciences provide wellness activities across the lifespan for individuals experiencing chronic disease and disability, including

stroke, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury or cerebral palsy, musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis or general conditions such as heart disease. In partnership with the Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation, this run/walk will raise money and awareness for individuals with paralysis. Janet Curtis, Vice President of Marketing for the Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation said the event raised more than $9000. “We are planning on this being an annual event, but no date is set for next year”, said Curtis. She went on to say that the Carroll University Physical Therapy (PT) Department has a connection with Bryon that 2 of the PT students put Bryon top bed each night. In fact, previous PT students from Carroll that used to help Bryon came to participate in the event. “It was a great first year and first event and we are so proud of being a partner with Carroll University”, said Curtis. “Bryon started this foundation in 2001 and so far has raised $1.8 million”. The funds are distributed in grants, scholarships and research; most of which goes for research, according to Curtis. The Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation

(BRPF); their Mission is to find a cure for paralysis through funding the latest in medical research and to provide assistance to those that suffer from neurological disorders. This research not only benefits those suffering from spinal cord injuries but also stroke victims, people diagnosed with ALS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders. The BRPF works within the paralysis community providing charitable grants to help make life easier for people suffering from paralysis. Equally important, the BRPF provides scholarships to individuals suffering from paralysis or families with a parent dealing with a neurological disorder. For more information on the Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation, and up coming events visit www.brpf.org.

Twenty-one years after their first album, Gin Blossoms released “No Chocolate Cake,” their fifth album. The album came out Sept. 28 and reached #1 on the Amazon on the websites MP3 album chart. Amazon also released the album a day early with a special $3.99 price. Opening with “Don’t Change for Me,” the album starts out on a upbeat note, demanding individuality and steadfastness to one’s beliefs. As the album progresses, even sadder themed songs like “I Don’t Want to Lose You Now,” maintain a more upbeat tone then most songs. The album contains 43:14 of the unique Gin Blossoms blend of alternative rock and various pop styles for their upbeat, but not tiring, music beneath catchy lyrics with a message. The album, released by 429 Records, follows four years after “Major Lodge Victory,” which peaked at 159 on The Billboard 200. “No Chocolate Cake” has climbed as high as 73 on the same chart since its release. The album stays true to the style of the bands old hits like “Hey Jealousy” and “Found Out About You” while still offering unique elements of their own. The similarities, even to their earliest works, are impressive as the band has had eleven unique members throughout their history, including a five year span between 1997 and 2002 when the band was broken up. “No Chocolate Cake” can be found in normal music retailers, both online and in-stores.

“Insatiable” by Meg Cabot is no ordinary vampire book. For starters, Cabot is the New York Times bestselling author of the young adult fiction series “The Princess Diaries,” and she doesn’t fail to deliver her loveable trademarks: charmingly fallible characters, whimsical banter and plenty of pop culture references. Meena Harper (get it?) is a script-writer for a corny daytimesoap and sometimes draws inspiration from the drama in her own life; that is, her uncanny ability to see how people around her are going to die. Unlike most genre heroines, Meena is an independent, off-beat and respectable character who finds herself in the middle of a vampire war. Meena crosses paths with Lucien Antonescu, a delicious Romanian history professor who also happens to be the Prince of Darkness. No, really. Cabot writes, “’He was in Burberry… But he definitely didn’t sparkle. He was very polite, though.’ “He is the leader of the vampire kingdom who came to New York City to investigate a series of grisly murders. Another character, Alaric, works for an ancient society of vampire hunters and wants Lucian dead (well, more than he already is). He is similar to James Bond: cold hearted, fabulously wealthy, and exceptionally skilled. He also might have a crush on Meena… “Insatiable” was a true page turner with delightful characters, engaging plot and clever turn of phrases which could kick Stephenie Meyer’s butt any day!

“Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” is all about dreams. Based off the first three of fifteen books in Kathryn Lasky’s “The Guardians of Ga’Hoole” series, this movie will leave you believing that “there is nothing wrong with dreams.” The movie follows Soren, a young barn owl, who has grown up hearing tales of the Guardians of Ga’Hoole, a legendary group of owls who are sworn to protect other owls in need. His favorite tale is that of Lyze of Kiel, his hero, defeating the evil Metalbeak. Soon, Soren gets to experience his own tale. One night, he gets captured with his brother Kludd by a group of owls known as the Pure Ones. The Pure Ones, an evil group of owls, have been capturing young owls and brainwashing them into becoming soldiers. Soren knows he must escape. So, along with his newfound Elf Owl friend, Gylfie, he escapes and heads toward the Great Tree, the home of the Guardians. They reach the tree, a few new friends in tow, and tell the Guardians of their tale. Soon, the battle between good and evil begins. With it backed by the same production company as “Happy Feet” and Zack Snyder, director of “Watchman” and “300,” making his animated directing debut, “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole,” is a must-see-film this fall. No matter if you see it in 2D or 3D, the animation is absolutely spectacular. It is a journey that anyone in the family can take, so just sit back and enjoy the flight.

Sid Meier’s Civilization V is set up much like its earlier counterparts. You begin with a settler in 4000 BC and, over the next couple thousand years, found cities, build armies, explore the world, dominate other civilizations and research technology. This time around, however, strategy is more important than ever. The first remarkable aspect of Civ V is the improved graphics. From art deco menus to the brightly colored maps and landscapes, the attention to detail has been pushed to its finest potential. There are several distinct styles to the cities of different cultures that players can choose from (Egyptian, Asian, European, etc) and not only do the Great Wonders such as the Great Wall or the Statue of Liberty appear on the map, but you can now actually see them under construction. The most notable improvement to Civ V is the shift from the traditional ‘grid’ map of squares to honeycombs of hexagons. This makes combat that much more involved, with more of an emphasis on strategy. Whereas in the past Civ gamess the system was more like the game “Risk,” Civ V relies on a more global chess-like feel. Unit positioning now matters more than ever, but since armies can no longer stack, bottlenecks have a greater chance of occurring before you get a grasp of the style. Also of note are the 10 skill trees that allow you to shape your government and policies over time. In addition, resources are much more valuable since the amount of resources is directly related to how much you can make out of that item. This makes trade, and again strategy, that much more important. The game is, overall, the best Civ yet and is different enough to be fresh to the old players but interesting enough to capture the attention of future Civ addicts.

Football climbs to 5-1, tied for first place in MWC Josh DeGrasse-Baumann Editorial Staff

Continuing their successful start to the season, the Carroll University football team has more wins than they did all year in 2009. They tied last year’s win total Homecoming weekend with a win over Lake Forest College in front of 2,000 people. A 35 yard kickoff return set Carroll’s first drive up at their 45-yard line. Carroll managed to drive the ball into the redzone, but ultimately turned the ball over on downs after failing to convert on fourth and one. The Foresters were held to a three and out on their first drive. Joe Beckstrand delivered

the first score of the game with a rushing touchdown in the first quarter.  The kicking problems gave Carroll just six points. Geoff Sobey and Austin Sobey would connect for a touchdown and, with a successful extra point took a one point lead as the quarter came to an end. The Pioneers would regain the lead a little less than six minutes into the second quarter with another rushing touchdown, this time from quarterback Chris Casper. The Foresters were held to another three and were forced to punt, but a high snap sailed over

the punter’s head to give the Pioneers a 15-7 lead. Defense was the key after the safety. Neither team would score again. Lake Forest ultimately ended the game with more punting yards then total offensive yards. The Pioneers managed to pick up 304 yards of offense, but their yards per play average of 4.0 is tied for their worst this season. The Pioneers took on the Lawrence University Vikings Oct. 10. Carroll scored first with a three yard touchdown run by Joe Beckstrand.

A 16 yard touchdown pass between Luke Barthelmess and Tyler Mazur tied the game for the Vikings. Capser answered back with a 28 yard touchdown pass of his own on the very next drive for the Pioneers. The grab was Beau Le Fevre’s only catch of the game, but he made it count. Barthelmess completed a 47 yard pass to Jon Bruehl a few minutes later to tie the game again, but a 5 yard Beckstrand touchdown run ended the games scoring at 21-14. Both teams were shutout in the second half. Casper went 18-30 for 223

yards and a touchdown. He also threw an interception, but the Vikings were unable to capitalize. The Pioneers dual-headed rushing game of Beckstrand and Drew Volkmann continued to impress, combining for167 yards on 37 carries. Defensively, Mike Dziewit had six tackles and a forced fumble which he would recover. He also had a sack. Kyle Bonin added 2.5 sacks with Josh Zank adding the other half. Bonin and Zank each had four tackles. The Pioneers return to action at home against St. Norbert College Oct. 16.

Men’s Soccer on a hot streak in MWC play The Pioneers outshoot and outscore their opponents in the Midwest Conference. Stu Weiss

Editorial Staff The weather isn’t the only thing heating up right now as the Carroll University men’s soccer team is catching fire. The team had four wins in their last five games and have outscored their opponents twelve goals to five during that stretch. After battling through the early season with numerous injury problems, the team is finally healthy and revealing how talented they are. Carroll currently sits at third in conference with four wins and no losses in conference and twelve points, three points back of both Ripon and Grinnell. A win is worth three points, a tie is worth one. The Pioneers have been keeping the pressure on opponents by keeping the ball on their end and taking shots. During their recent streak, Carroll outshot opponents 69 to 41. The opportunities have certainly paid off and, if Carroll keeps pressuring opponents in a similar manner, they

will be hard to stop. Another key is that Carroll has committed eleven fewer fouls than their opponents; they will need to keep that composure if they want to continue at chances for a confer-

ence championship. Coach Mobley feels Carroll’s recent success is based on one factor: “having everyone healthy for the first time, bottom line.” “We have to stay healthy.

We are a good team. In August and September we were short five or six starters,” Mobley said. The final goal Mobley has for the team is to make the NCAA Tournament. To do that he feels the team must first make

the conference tournament any way they can. He feels that, if the team is healthy, the sky is the limit. “The conference championship is a byproduct of health and luck,” Mobley said. The Pioneers have been led by senior Marc Heitpas and his numbers have been astronomical in the recent weeks. He has four goals and two assists in the last five games. Heitpas leads the Midwest Conference in goals and points per game. Not only did he get .83 goals per game, but the second best is only .64. Most impressive of all is he only needs an even three shots per game to accumulate those gaudy numbers. Heitpas started the season after he had reconstructive knee surgery in February. He was not able to practice until the preseason and was on limited minutes to start the season. Coach Mobley feels that the key to Heitpas’ success is that his work ethic is, “second to none.” The upcoming schedule is very favorable for Carroll. Other than first place at Grinnell, Carroll’s schedule becomes much easier. The remaining three opponents, Knox, Beloit and St. Norbert are currently 3-12 in conference. The Pioneers have an excellent chance of winning the conference championship and it sets up for a very exciting race for the title.

Athlete Spotlight: Chris Casper’s 3rd year as quarterback Marty Pitzer Staff Writer

“I want to help the youth gain the same experience..” -- Senior Chris Casper

Chris Casper, a senior at Carroll University is in his third year as quarterback for the Carroll University Pioneers. He comes from a sports background, having played basketball, baseball and football in high school. His high school football team took their conference championship during his final year after the school’s 10year slump. Casper is a recreation management major and is inspired to help youth. “I want to help the youth gain the same experience through sports,” said Casper. He was approached by Car-

roll scouts in his senior year in high school. He liked the football and academic programs Carroll offered. Motivation and inspiration are key to him. “My teammates and I have developed a relationship in which we all have the same goal. As far as my inspiration, I get that from my dad who has a great work ethic and attitude,” he said. Casper’s interest range from fishing, hunting and following sports; but it is clear that he is focused on the priorities of school and winning more football games. “Chris has played very well for us so far this season. He sets a great example to his teammates with his work ethic. Chris is a true student of the game and has a great understanding of what we’re trying to do offensively. He is also one of the leaders of the team, and a great student as well,” said Head Coach Henny Hiemenz. Casper returns to the footblal field Oct. 16 at Carroll against St. Nortbert College with a 6-1 record in sight.

One meet remains for the Carroll University cross country team before the Midwest Conference Championship. “We have to build confidence going into the conference,” said Head Coach Shawn Thielitz. “I keep telling the team that our final exam is a few weeks away, but we have a few tests before that.”

The team seeks to build that confidence by meeting their season goals of improved times and closing gaps between their runners. The Sean Earl Invitational on Oct. 2 saw 41 teams, including Carroll, take the field in what Thielitz calls one of the most physical meets of the year. “You have to throw elbows,”

Thielitz said. “You need to do what you can to keep your path.” Joe Pliner finished first for the Pioneers, clocking a time of 26:38. He was followed by Kevin Meyer eight seconds later. It would be more than a minute later before Joe Zambetti finished with a time of 27:57. Mitchell Penninger followed him clocking in at 28:23. Chris Pynenberg rounded out Carroll’s top five at 28:49. The women’s top runner was Kaitlin Daugherty who finished in 19:35. Eden Frazier and Marissa Mader would finish next with times of 19:56 and 20:02 respectively. Amy Killian and Jessica Laurin would within the next sixteen seconds with times of 20:16 and 20:18 respectively. “Overall, I was pleased,” said Thielitz, “We’re shaking things up and we’re getting faster.” The Oct. 6 Gene Davis Invitational meet saw Carroll rest-

ing some of their top runners to prepare them for the UW-Oshkosh Brooks Invitational and, eventually, the conference championship. The top five men starters and the top six women starters were rested. “As a coach, I’m looking to see how the chance to compete for a higher spot affects the runners,” Thielitz said. “If they get a shot to respond, how will they?” Ryan Hanus finished near the 28 minute mark to take the top Pioneer spot. Pynenyberg followed nearly a minute and a half later with a time of 29:23. Nicole Hertel was the first Lady Pioneer to finish, clock-

ing in at 22:16. She would be followed by Rebecca Michalek about 12 seconds later. Jessica Pomrening finished with a time of 22:47. With the Midwest Conference Championship set for Oct. 30, the team has one more meet to ready themselves. “I’m hoping for quick times,” said Thielitz. “We’re running very well and the team is very excited.” Carroll returns to action Oct. 16 for the UW-Oshkosh Invitational before the Midwest Conference Championships Oct. 30.

Women’s Soccer stays hot in MWC play Josh DeGrasse-Baumann Editorial Staff

The Carroll University women’s soccer team opened the Midwest Conference season with a dominant victory over Beloit College and has shown no signs of slowing down. The first seven games of the season were against non-conference opponents. “I think it was very beneficial for us to play teams like Oneonta early in the season, because it provided us with an opportunity to work out our ‘kinks’ against high quality teams.  By playing better teams in the beginning of our season, it helped prepare us for conference.  We use games like Oneonta as an example of a ‘complete game’ where we gave it our all for 90 minutes, so it’s nice to know that we can compete with teams at that level,” said senior forward Cody Callender. The Lady Pioneers first Midwest Conference match was a Sept. 30 matchup against Beloit. Callender netted the first goal of the game in just under 38 minutes into the game. The single goal would have been enough to win the match, but the Lady Pios weren’t done. Lauren Demski was assisted by Kelly Blenner to score a goal four minutes after Callender to give Carroll a 2-0 lead at halftime. The Lady Pios exploded after the half. Callender scored her second goal of the game a little over five minutes into the second half. Her shot was assisted by Kylie Ringelstetter. Kendell Uttech and Natalie Jaeger would score respective goals within six minutes of each other to round out the offense. Goalkeepers Taylor Mclean and Alison Helf would combine to shut out the Buccaneers. Two days later, Carroll took on Monmouth College. Callender netted two goals just over five minutes apart. This gave the Lady Pioneers a 2-0 lead less than thirteen minutes into the game. Monmouth surrendered a goal and Leah Wiercinski��������������������������������  assisted Kelly Blenner ���������������� in scoring a goal in the 44th minute to give Carroll a 4-0 lead at the half. Monmouth would avoid a shutout with a goal from Molly

Ball in the middle of the second half, but their offense would be unable to get any closer. Illinois College was next for Carroll. Uttech netted a goal in each half. Kelly Moran and Ringelstetter also scored goals. The Lady Pios combined the efforts of Mclean, Helf and Kelsey Braatz to shutout the Lady Blues, but the Lady Pioneer defense held Illinois College to just two shots throughout the game. Carroll continued their season Oct. 8 at Lake Forest College in a game that would be decided just four minutes in. Lake Forests›s Becky Esrock assisted Amanda Greco in scoring a goal just 23 seconds into the game, making the Foresters the first Midwest Conference team to lead the Lady Pioneers this season, but Carroll

would answer back immediately. Amanda Leach set up Uttech a goal at the 2:15 mark to tie the game. A minute and thirty seconds later, Callender scored the game-winning goal. Carroll›s first home game of the Midwest Conference schedule came Oct. 10 against Lawrence University. The game was over early with Callender scoring a goal just past the five minute mark and netting another one a little under 11 minutes later. Uttech and Kelly Moran assisted the respective goals. Moran would add a goal of her own just before the 21 minute mark to give the Lady Pioneers a 3-0 lead at the half. Mclean would shutout the Vikings, leaving no pressure on her offense to score any more goals. With their latest victory,

Carroll has won their last eighteen games against Midwest Conference opponents dating back to the 2008 season, not including tournament play. They haven›t lost a Midwest Conference game since Sept. 13, 2008 against St. Norbert, giving them a streak of 22 consecutive conference games without a loss. “It is our goal to win conference and win the conference tournament, so the conference games are the most important to us.  There are some very exciting non-conference games that we play/have played, but when it comes down to it, winning the conference tournament is what will get us to the NCAA’s [tournament],” Callender said. The Lady Pioneers return to action Oct. 16 against Knox College at Schneider Stadium followed by an Oct. 17 matchup against Grinnell College.
