fer Wall, who was rejected while the other three were appointed. Piatt attended his first monthly Water Utility Commission meeting on Oct. 21, a four-hour meeting. “As a scientist it’ll force me to meld the policy and the science. There’s not many people willing to cross those boundaries,” he said. Piatt’s positions have largely been informed by scientific analysis of regional water supply issues, especially an 8-year Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission study which developed a set of regional groundwater recommendations. The application recommends discontinuing the deep aquifer as a water source for Waukesha, and deems Lake Michigan a viable alternative. “Originally I was hoping that a local watershed would work [but] I just don’t see how that’s going to be feasible,” said Piatt “Generally speaking, the application is a reasonable thing. It would be an easy system to maintain and make sure that everyone’s in compliance.” Scrima has expressed concern about Waukesha’s water independence, and advocated continued use of the deep aquifer while treating water for radium and salt contamination, creating new wells in the shallow aquifer, and pulling water from nearby quarries. Piatt, however, said there is little to fear from Milwaukee’s involvement thanks to government oversight from the Public Service Commission, which would regulate water rates. “If the Public Service Commission does its job, then they won’t allow rate hikes that aren’t justified,” he said. He also aligns with the study’s recommendations. “Continued pumping of [the deep aquifer] would present a sustainability problem,” he said. The technology for treating radium and salt is available, but
MacAllister Haunts: What kind of spooks does Carroll’s piece of history hold?

Joe Piatt has a red book sitting on a file cabinet in his office; “The Great Lakes Water Wars”. The Carroll chemistry professor will now have the opportunity to write his own chapter in Waukesha’s battle for Lake Michigan water. On Oct. 5 he was appointed as a member of the Waukesha Water Utility Commission, along with two others. Water has been a divisive subject for Waukesha politicians, especially between the common council and Mayor Jeff Scrima. Dan Warren, the commission’s president and a 21-year veteran whose term expired in October, notified the council of his intention to seek reappointment. Scrima, however, nominated Piatt — an environmental chemist specializing in soil and water resources — to fill Warren’s slot. Traditionally, Waukesha’s mayor has nominated water utility commissioners which the council then confirmed. However, common council president Paul Ybarra referenced state and city laws make the selection the responsibility of the common council. Warren has supported using Lake Michigan water, while Scrima has been a vehement opponent. Piatt’s stance was largely unknown. Piatt received an official letter from Scrima on Sept. 10, asking if he would accept a nomination for the commission. Piatt was surprised by the letter, having never met Scrima. “I’m not exactly sure how he got my name,” he said. Piatt met with the mayor to discuss the commission and his possible role on Sept. 16. He had reservations about the wellpublicized political discord between the mayor and the council. “I didn’t want to walk in on an agenda,” he said. “To the mayor’s credit, he never asked me whose water policies I supported. If he had asked that question, I don’t think I would have accepted.” Piatt did accept, and his nomination became the latest chapter in a controversial process. Over the course of two weeks, the council decided to expand the commission from 5 to 7, leaving slots for Piatt, Warren, and William Boyle, a retired civil engineer who had expressed interest in the commission. However, Scrima then made another nominee, attorney Jenni-
Piatt said that implementation and use for a large water supply isn’t realistic. He was also wary of using quarries, saying that it presents a new set of environmental issues. His concerns about new wells in the shallow aquifer were legal rather than scientific. The city would need to reach outside city limits for new wells in the shallow aquifer, and already is facing legal challenges from the town of Waukesha. Cooperation between communities in managing water supplies is difficult, Piatt said. “Political boundaries and community identity are human issues that are tough to get around,” he said. “No community’s going to want to give up the autonomy of their water system.” However, Waukesha will have to look to others in the region, according to Piatt. “There is no viable source of water within the city limits,” he said. He was optimistic about the current direction of Waukesha’s application. “This is one situation where people say ‘we have a great resource. Let’s do something now rather than later,’” he said.

She added that if someone caught the animal, the center would give it treatment that might save its life.

Waukesha’s water under review
The city’s search for safe drinking water Matt Hoffman
Staff Wrtier Most people don’t have second thoughts when filling up a glass of water from a tap. For years, however, residents of Waukesha have been drinking water with levels of radium, a naturally radioactive element linked to several types of cancer, exceeding Environmental Protection Agency standards. The City has been dealing with the growing pains of trying to find a source of water in compliance with such standards. In 2003, after a lengthy series of court battles, Waukesha accepted the Environmental Protection Agency’s mandate to comply with federal radium standards for drinking water by 2018. After exploring several options and spending thousands of dollars on consultants, the common council and then-mayor Larry Nelson submitted an application for Great Lakes water. Under the Great Lakes Water Compact, a community outside of the Great Lakes Basin must go through an application process and receive ap-
proval from Great Lakes states’ governors. Waukesha is the first city to begin the application process. Most of Waukesha’s water currently comes from groundwater located in what is commonly known as the deep aquifer. However, water levels have dropped 500-600 feet in the aquifer, and radium and salt levels have increased. It is believed that water quality will continue to deteriorate as levels drop. The deep aquifer is largely surrounded by impermeable rock, making it difficult for rainwater to replenish water levels. Waukesha also draws 13 percent of its water from a shallow aquifer which is easily replenished
by rainwater, but there are fears that increased drilling would lower water levels and lead to negative environmental impacts. The shallow aquifer is also more susceptible to pollution, and any new wells would be drilled outside city limits and require cooperation with other communities. The town of Waukesha is preparing legal challenges to the city’s plans to drill new wells. The election of new Mayor Jeff Scrima in July divided what had been a unanimous position in city hall. Scrima, a political newcomer, has been a vocal opponent of using Lake Michigan for a water source, and clashed with the common council on many is-

sues. However, he does not have the political authority to override the council’s decision to apply for Great Lakes water. Scrima has advocated continuing use of the deep aquifer, in addition of creating new wells in the shallow aquifer and near the Fox River, and tapping water from nearby quarries. The city considered such options before applying for Lake Michigan water, but deemed them too expensive and not sustainable. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources halted their review of the application on June 9 after Scrima’s election. The DNR recently restarted its review, but has required more information about a controversial plan to return wastewater to Lake Michigan using Underwood Creek in Wauwatosa. Under the city’s current application plan, there is a buffer zone of 18 months between establishment of a working water system and the EPA’s deadline.

Lynden Sculpture Garden—Inside/Outside Exhibition Kristina Ljujic Editorial Staff
The Lynden Sculpture Garden has opened its door to local artist in the new “Inside/Outside” exhibition. Phil Krejcarek, Carroll University’s Chair of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, and local fine art photographer Eddee Daniel are currently displaying their collaborative work at Lynden. The “Inside/Outside” exhibition began in the summer of this year, and will continue into 2011. Artists have the opportunity to display their work outside in the park, as well as inside the house on the property. All of the participants were chosen through an application process. “Lynden Sculpture Garden extended an invitation to local artists to display their work,” said Krejcarek. “I asked Eddee if he wanted to collaborate on something.” Daniel exhibited his “Accidental Art” series at Carroll last year. The subject of the series was orange and black construction fences. Although the artists did not have a set idea for their work when they were accepted, Krejcarek thought the orange fences were a good starting point. “I decided to make blue ladders to go along with Eddee’s orange fences,” said Krejcarek.
An artist led tour for “Under Construction” will be hosted on Nov. 7 at 2:30 p.m. Photo courtesy of Phil Krejcarek
“Orange and blue are complimentary colors, and the ladders fit the construction theme.” Their collaboration is titled “Under Construction,” and several sculptural works can be seen around the park. Most of these works consist of both the orange fences and the blue ladders, except for a couple, such as the blue ladder that is emerging from the pond at the park. The

10:20 PM And the scariest event tonight was: my roommate and I witnessing a young man leaving the parking lot in terrifyingly short shorts. O.o
10:17 PM So, my night of screams and embarrassment is coming to a close. i think i saw my zombified friend Matt working in the “Unstable” haunt.
9:34 PM We just left Unstable. It was inside a stable. I see what they did there. A zombie with epic contact lenses sniffed me. *Shudders*
9:23 PM Zombie with a chainsaw! OMG, run! Or walk quickly! That works too!
9:20 PM Torment. Claustrophobia, anyone?
10:16 PM My zombie crush resides in the “Labyrinth” haunt. Ya know, for those who wanted to know....
Going into Torment. I’m scared.
Now I will forever be known as Crush Girl. OMG.
Zombies yelled at little Emily :( My favorite moment: “Hey, look! An arm!”
10:11 PM Ok, so there was a really nice zombie and I stupidly said I had a crush on him.
8:52 PM Now walking into Morgan Manor. Ooo scary. My roommate pointed out the creepy faces on the walls. :P
artists agree that the works have a surreal quality to them. “I believe they hold a balance between serious symbolic content and whimsical abstraction,” said Daniel. One work includes a ladder suspended horizontally over a fence. In another, a ladder is standing vertically on its end next to a fence. Several of the ladders are set on metal rods, and
appear to be floating over the ground instead of sitting directly on top of it. Others are hinged at the corners, and look as if they are simply resting against each other over the top of the fences. The “inside” aspect of the exhibition includes photographs from Daniel’s Accidental Art series, and white foam core houses with small blue ladders that Krejcarek created for the collab-
oration. Also on display is Daniel’s book, “Urban Wilderness,” which is a collection of photographs of the Menomonee River area in Milwaukee. Daniel and Krejcarek said they have known each other of many years, and both agree that it has made their collaboration easier. “We have been having a lot of fun with this,” said Daniel. “We bounced ideas off each other and came to a mutual consensus on content, form, and aesthetic issues pretty quickly. We occasionally disagreed on some points, but neither of us felt the need to be right all the time.” “Under Construction” opened Oct. 24, and will remain on display until Dec. 12. Daniel and Krejcarek will conduct an artist-led tour on Nov. 7 at 2:30 p.m. at Lynden Sculpture Garden. “I hope that people will enjoy the surprises we provided, enjoy the whimsical aspects,” said Daniel. “I hope that they will leave with a new or different awareness of the aesthetic and metaphoric implications of construction fences in the environment.” For more information about the exhibition, visit the Lynden Sculpture Garden’s website at www.lyndensculpturegarden. org.
Tiny, creepy, itchy Wisconsin seeing a rise in begbug infestations Heather Markovich
Prevent the pests!
Bedtime is usually a time of rejoicing for college students - classes are done for the day, homework is completed and nothing sounds better than dozing off in a warm bed. That is, until one dive under the sheets introduces you to an onslaught of little itching bites all over the body. Wisconsin is at war with a rising population of bedbugs, and they’re not sure exactly why. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Milwaukee’s Department of Neighborhood Services received about one call a month reporting bedbugs a year ago, but now the office gets about three calls a day. Bedbugs are quickly surpassing cockroaches as the largest public health pest control issue. While there is no requirement that infestations have to be reported to health officials, health departments still get calls because bedbug infestations are perceived to be unsanitary. And though the nocturnal creatures don’t transmit human diseases while feeding on blood, scratched bites can leave chance for secondary infections and may causes rashes in some people. Typically the small 4-5mm creatures are associated with mattresses and other bedroom furniture, primarily because scavenged infested mattress-
es left curbside are their favorite homes. However, the pests have been known to hide just about anywhere they can fit; normally in hotels or apartments. And, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, if the nationwide pattern continues, the next place local bedbugs could be found will be movie theaters, retail stores and hospitals. While departments aren’t exactly sure what is causing the upswing in bedbug population, a few theories pertaining to a combination of international travel, crowded living quarters and the move away from strong pesticides could be factors. Carroll students worried about their living areas should make sure to check for dark spots about the size of pencilpoints which are bed bug excrement, small white 1mm eggs and rusty reddish stains on bed sheets, mattresses or seams of beds caused by bed bugs being crushed. The US Environmental Protection Agency suggests a few strategies for preventing and treating bedbug infestations, which can be seen in the accompanying box. If you currently live in campus housing, check with Housing before attempting any of the treatments. More tips can be found at their website at www.epa.gov/bedbugs.
•Use a protective cover that encases mattresses and box springs to eliminate hiding spots. The light color of the encasement makes bugs easier to see, as well. •Reduce clutter in your living area •When traveling, use luggage racks to hold your luggage when packing/unpacking •Check mattresses and headboard before sleeping at anywhere new Treatments: •Wash and dry bedding and clothing at high temperatures to kill bed bugs •Clean all items within area and physically removing bugs •Using one of the 300 pesticides registered by the EPA for use •Hire a pest management professional

Paranormal Activities 2 terrorizes the box office Sequel is almost a perfect scare Luke Bennewitz Editorial Staff
The Band Perry’s self-titled debut album sold over 52,000 copies in its first week and entered the Billboard Country Chart at #2, which, according to the band’s website, makes it the second highest country album debut of the year. The band consists of Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry, three siblings from Mobile, Ala. They released their first single, the upbeat “Hip to My Heart,” on Dec. 21, 2009. Four other EP tracks could be bought on iTunes after this release. However, the band did not release a full album until after this year’s release of the more serious chart-topping song “If I Die Young.” The album consists of a wide variety of songs, which range from lovegone-wrong songs, such as “Miss You Being Gone,” to ballads, such as “Walk Me Down the Middle” and “Lasso.” There is not much room for disappointment in the album. The lyrics and music are well written by three very talented siblings. The band has upcoming tour date scheduled with Alan Jackson, and will be presenting an award at this year’s American music Awards on Nov. 21.

“Football Manager 2011” is the latest in a series of soccer simulation games from Sports Interactive and the newest addition does not disappoint. Like its predecessors, “Football Manager 2011” gives the player the ability to manage a soccer team in most of the world’s leagues. The tasks can be extensive, from managing lineups and player contracts to controlling scouting and training schedules, but the game makes these tasks far less intimidating than they seem. For the most part, the 2011 version improves on these tasks, making them more in-depth and realistic. Player contracts, for example, now feel more ‘live’ like with immediate discussion from the player and his agent. Agents also have more unique personalities, which have their own effects on transfers. Match-wise, the new game features slightly improved graphics and more non-match conditions such as weather and game time. The game is comparable to the “Madden” franchise in the simulation aspect, but it differs in that gamers do not take control of individual players, but rather control things which influence how the players will act. With the growing enthusiasm for soccer in the United States, “Football Manager 2011” is more than capable of tiding Americans over until the next World Cup.
that occur in the first film. However, the final few moments of the film do not do the rest of the film justice. Granted, the storyline and plot for the final few scenes are good, but the way the movie went about creating it for the big screen missed the mark. “Paranormal Activity 2” has the necessary scare factor for Halloween fanatics across the country. Although it is a rarity in movie franchises, “Paranormal Activity 2” is much better than the first installment. Even though the plot could use some improvement, the simplicity of the suspense makes this movie one of the scariest of the year and instead of wondering if you can get your money back, you will be wondering when you’ll see it next.
With whimsical illustrations by Ian Falconer, “Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary,” by David Sedaris, seems to be a children’s book at first glance. Remember, however, not to judge a book by its cover. Sedaris is widely renowned for having written “When You Are Engulfed in Flames” and “Me Talk Pretty One Day.” Perhaps having run out of human-based fables, he redirects his reflective and deeply personal stories to the animals in our own backyard. The story behind the title, for example, is about a squirrel that dates a chipmunk despite popular prejudice between the two groups. They chat about the spoiled rotten dogs on the block, hold each other’s paws, and nibble on acorns. “I like Jazz,” the squirrel said. Not knowing what jazz is, the chipmunk agrees but is later troubled by it. Her family, in particular, convinces her to mistrust the squirrel--What if “jazz” was squirrel slang for something terrible? Sedaris directs us to our most human shortcomings (prejudice, selfishness, vanity, loneliness and the like) through terribly intimate short stories. The pieces are heartbreaking or hopeful and it’s a lovely read for a short break or thoughtful weekend. No, it’s not quite Aesop. It’s too personal, subtle, and uncensored for those little parables.
Second, and another large distinction between the first film and the second film, is when the suspenseful events take place. In the first film, the events occur primarily around 3 a.m. In the second film, the events take place throughout the entire day which always keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat. Third, the spaces throughout the house are utilized much more effectively throughout the course of the film in comparison to the first movie. While there is significant attention devoted to Hunter’s nursery, the film revolves around the living room, the various bedrooms and, the scariest of all, the home’s basement. As the film concludes, it provides a good quality explanation for the events
in the house of Kristi Rey and her husband Dan with their daughter Ali, dog Abby, newborn Hunter and housekeeper Martine. One distinct difference between this movie and the first movie is the multitude of characters, which makes the viewer think that there is safety in numbers and that the ‘scare factor’ will be significantly lowered for every aspect of the film. This is, however, not the case for “Paranormal Activity 2” for three reasons. First, the film switches back and forth between a portable handheld camera and the multiple safety cameras that are placed around the house and just watching the film through those lenses gives the viewer the creeps.
BED OF ROSES
There are few scary movies that will have movie-goers afraid to go to sleep this Halloween season that can be better than “Paranormal Activity 2.” The film has brought in $40,678,424 since it’s opening Thursday night. Moreover, it would have been easy to throw an excessivespecial effects into the budget but the film remained true to the rustic franchise, with an estimated $3 million budget. As the second installment of the “Paranormal Activity” franchise, “Paranormal Activity 2” acts as a prequel and semi-sequel to the first film because the first film takes place during the storyline of the second film. The majority of the film takes place
“Life As We Know It” isn’t the most innovative movie of 2010. In actuality, it’s a movie based off clichés. In 2007, Alison and Peter set up the two main characters, Holly and Messer, on a blind date. Right from the start, after Messer showed up an hour late, the date had been a total disaster. It ended before it started, with Holly swearing she never wanted to see Messer again. But she did. For three years, the two interacted with each other if only for the sake of their friends. It wasn’t until Alison and Peter were killed in a car crash that Holly and Messer were forced to work together to take care of their friend’s one-year-old daughter, Sophie. Throughout the course of the movie, the two learn how to live and work together to raise baby Sophie. They’ve, of course, have typical problems, like the night they spend awake trying to get Sophie to sleep and end up having to drive her around the neighborhood to get her to sleep. Of course, they end up falling in love. To be honest, if you’ve seen the trailers for “Life As We Know It”, you’ve probably seen the entire movie. However, it was still a nice little romantic comedy that will warm your heart. Not to mention the adorable actresses who starred as Sophie.
MacAlliste a history of haunts •
Tina Ljujic & Heather Markovich Editorial Staff
You’d be hard-pressed to find a student at Carroll University who hasn’t heard one of the numerous ‘haunting’ stories about MacAllister Hall that have circulated the campus for nearly the past 70 years. MacAllister Hall was originally built around 1895 by Carroll graduate George H. Wilbur, founder of the Wilbur Lumber Co. which went out of business in 1970. The Wilbur family lived in their home on the corner of East Ave. and College Ave. until George’s death in 1922. A newspaper account from that era described the mansion as “the handsomest and most costly in the village.” In 1927, Lydia E. Morgan of Oshkosh donated money to the college for the purchase and renovation of the house. Named “Morgan Manor” in her honor, the building operated as the college’s library and a Civil War museum until 1942. In 1948 it was remodeled into a dormitory. It was around this time that reports of ‘ghostly’ activity started creeping up. Nicknamed “The Morgue” by past Carroll students, Morgan Manor’s occupants over the years have reported hearing noises like doors opening and closing on their own, stairs creaking, moans and voices in the empty hallways as well as mysterious sounds that seemed to come from the walls. One morning in the 1970s, a student was reported to have woken up with a series of bloody scratches on his chest. Images and apparitions have reportedly also been seen. Students recalled seeing the ghosts of Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur dressed in formal ball attire from the late 19th century traversing the old stairway and walking through walls as if they were following the old floor plan of the building. Students also reported seeing Lydia Morgan walking down the stairs and through the walls, in places where doors were located prior to the renovation. According to a Waukesha Post article from 1979, Carroll College legend held that though Lydia never lived in the house, she committed suicide by hanging herself from a rafter in the attic. Though the story has never been proven true or false, some students said they had seen a female apparition with a noose around her neck in the building during the night. In oth-
er accounts, it is an unidentified male dressed in black with the noose. The most startling account with a spirit happened in the 1970s. According to a Milwaukee Journal article from 1984, 1972 Carroll graduate Joe Kremkowski lived in the building in a single room that was built under a stairway on the first floor. Late at night and with his door closed, as he was about to drift off to sleep, he was suddenly startled to consciousness. Kremkoski described a figure at the foot of his bed that appeared to have come through the wall. The figure was dressed in a long overcoat and seemed to be middle-aged. “It had a smirk on its face and it was reaching over to grab my foot,” said Kremkoski. “Not viciously or maliciously, but like it was playing a game. It appeared more than transparent, translucent maybe.” Kremkoski bolted from bed and, in the days that followed, talked with other residents of the building and found that others had had experienced some strange phenomena there as well. A few weeks after his encounter with the ghost, Kremkoski began to look into the history of Morgan Manor. He wrote to the Wilbur Lumber Co. and obtained a copy of a booklet published in 1950 commemorating the firm’s 75th anniversary. While paging through it, he stopped at a page with a portrait of George Wilbur’s son, Ray J. Wilbur who had held position in the company as vice-president and died in 1938. “The person I saw in my room that night bore a striking resemblance to Ray Wilbur,” said Kremkoski. In 1979, Carroll moved its administrative offices into the building. Presently, MacAllister Hall (Morgan Manor) is home to the Departments of History, English, Religious Studies and Languages. Some current professors, whose offices are housed in the building, have admitted sightings and sounds to this day.

Overnight experience in MacAllister rumors versus reality
Began uploading a live feed and updates from our website.
After hearing rumor of the many stories that have drifted around Carroll University campus for years about ‘paranormal’ activity within MacAllister Hall, The New Perspective editorial staff decided to take a night to investigate. On the night of Oct. 22, seven of our editors set aside their night to pack up their sleeping bags, equip themselves with flashlights and video cameras and take to the halls of MacAllister after-hours. Upon arrival at the building at approximately 6 p.m. we immediately began setting up a live feed from our website, www.thedigitalnp.com. After surveying the three floors and attic, we began to formulate a plan of investigation. Having heard stories of Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur making ‘appearances’ on the first floor, a large video camera was set up in the main hall and continued to video tape throughout the night. Unfor-
tweets from the night
tunately, no activity was caught. After closing window curtains and turning off nearly all the lights around 11 p.m., phones began ringing in various offices on the different levels of the building. Startling at first, this could be easily explained away considering numerous viewers were watching our feeds who knew we were in the building anyways. Layout Editor Amanda Palczynski and Features Editor Heather Markovich reported an incident on the stairs on their way down from 3rd to 1st floor. Throughout the night, many of our devices that required batteries, suffered from life shortages; even after they had just been charged or new batteries had been installed. Other editors reported receiving chills. At around 1 a.m., the editors whipped out a Ouija Board and headed to the attic in hopes to maybe even make
contact with Lydia Morgan. During the session, messages were received including “Kilgour” and “Ms” “J” and “Wilbur.” Interestingly enough, Ray J. Wilbur was the name of a supposed ‘apparition’ that haunted a student who used to live in the building when it was a residence hall. A second Ouija Board session was conducted on 2nd floor which resulted in the words “revenge” from a former Carroll English student who believed it was 1935. The night ended with our editorial staff members spending the night in the 1st floor classroom, saying hello to the early morning while watching “Paranormal Activity.” While most of what happened could probably be explained away, the experience remained relatively spooky throughout the night. Was some of it legitimate paranormal activity? We may never know.
Set up a tripod with a camera in the main hall. Temperature on main floor went from 78 to 72 degrees.
While two editors go down the stairway to 1st floor, the 3rd floor door slams shut at the lights go out. A screech is heard.
11:40 PM Phones begin going off on 2nd floor.
12:30 AM Phones continue to ring.
Experiencing battery life shortages on multiple devices and chills are felt by certain editors in doorways.
Paranormal Investigator hunts on campus unanswered questions remain
Break out the Ouija Board and head to the attic.
Jordan Reyes Editorial Staff
Shannon Sylvia, a paranormal investigator, visited Carroll University Oct. 25 to give students a presentation and escort students on a ghost hunt in MacAllister Hall. She started her hour long presentation showing students the many false positives that people mistake for paranormal activity. She identified lint, bugs and dust as potential false positives. According to Sylvia, a real orb has a nucleus, a ring and radiates energy. Her presentation also included images that were of paranormal activity in places like Sallie House. The Sallie House, located in Arkansas, is known for the high levels of supposed demonic activity. Once her presentation concluded, I was selected with about thirty other students to attend a ghost hunt on campus.
Phones continue to ring, we answer one to hear static.
Our location of interest was MacAllister Hall. Previous stories or rumors of MacAllister Hall include a possible suicide or hanging, along with sounds from an attic door, a presence on the third floor and a possible man and woman seen in the building that either owned or created the hall which was originally a home. Our investigation took place in the Styza boardroom located on the first floor. She had several tools that she used throughout the investigation including a laser, a “Shack Pack” or “Ghost Phone,” a K-2 reader and an application called IOvilus which takes sounds created from the changes to sensors and translate it into words. Many questions were asked and unfortunately went unanswered. The IO-
vilus created words such as “girl”, “has”, “mop”, “up”, “basement” and “tragic.” The names “Beth”, and “George” were also spoken. They were eerie and freaked people out. The girl holding the device was scared when the words were spoken. Several people during the questions and answers mentioned feeling a chill. Sylvia checked but found no drafts on the doors or windows. She spoke how certain occasions can bring cold spots and make it feel like the air conditioning is blowing directly on you. By the end of the hour long hunt, nothing significant had been established. It was a short amount of time to do the hunt but left everyone wondering about MacAllister Hall and what happened there a long time ago.
Messages from the session include “Kilgour” (with number 5 and 3), and “Ms,” “J,” and “Wilbur.”
Six voice recordings mysteriously are erased after the session but were there prior.
3:00 AM 2nd floor Ouija session begins.
Messages from the session include “Revenge” from a former Carroll English student who believes it to be 1935. During, our live feed and video camera died. For a more complete list of detailed updates, visit www.thedigitalnp.com and click on “Haunted MacAllister.”

Swift matures in ‘Speak Now’ New music, new subjects in country-pop crossover’s new album Tina Ljujic
Swift’s musical style has grown with her in the past four years.
Editorial Staff After releasing her first album when she was 16, country-pop crossover artist Taylor Swift, now 20, released her third album Oct. 25. The new album, “Speak Now,” is a step in a new direction for Swift. Not only has her style of music changed, but the subject of her music has changed as well. She has stepped outside of the boundaries of teen love, and writing songs that deal with topics such as true love, loss and even marriage. The album’s first single, “Mine,” shows Swift getting married and starting a family. Swift wrote every song on the album, including the bonus tracks on Target’s deluxe version. According to Swift’s official website, there is a story behind each song. For example, Swift said on her website that she wrote “Back to December” about an ex-boyfriend she still cared about. This personal aspect makes the album more realistic than her previous albums, as well as easier to relate to. The style of songs such as “You Belong with Me” is less present in the album. Swift has defi-
nitely taken a more mature, age-appropriate approach to writing. Most of the new songs resemble the style of songs such as “Hey Stephen” and “The Way I Loved You” from her “Fearless” album. The acoustic guitar is a major component in most of the songs. Some songs on the new album, including “Haunted,” make use of an entire orchestra. “Haunted” is sure to draw in listeners, as is “Back to December.” Her title track is one of the only songs that do not quite fit with the rest of the album. The music takes a more upbeat approach, and she sings the words in a more choppy fashion. On the other hand, “Sparks Fly,” another upbeat song, is written quite well and has a catchy melody that is sure to become stuck in listeners’ heads. “Speak Now” is available in stores and on iTunes, and a deluxe version can be found at Target.

Unknown Component releases ninth indie album Josh DeGrasse-Baumann lieve / everything is meant to be, lived, but being lived anyway. The Editorial Staff
Keith Lynch, better known as Unknown Component, released his ninth independent album Oct. 12. “The Infinite Definitive” features nearly 43 minutes of music which all due to the hard work of Lynch, who does everything from playing each instrument to recording and promoting the album himself. The album opens with “Moving Out of Frame” which seems to tell of the differences between one mind and another and the inability to describe the two. The album progresses with somewhat down, but not depressing, lyrics and tones. Instead, the album offers advice and good intentions, all with an underlying theme of something missing. “The leaves are changing in the trees, rain is falling in the sea, somewhere someone makes be-
I don’t know what’s in between all the spaces and the seams, but I know I’ll / always dream and that this is all I need,” describes the chorus of “A Heavy Heart or an Empty Stomach,” the fourth track on the album. The first half of the album ends with “The Experience of Understanding” in which the singer pleads out of desperation, describing how every action taken creates more uncertainty and, ultimately, deciding that uncertainty needs to be accepted, explaining that “doubt is a method of survival”. The second half of the album progresses towards a more upbeat, though uncertain, message with tracks like “When the Illusion is What it Seems” seeming to suggest uncertainty and oddity are, in fact, natural. “The Introduction is Arriving” describes a very average life with the sole purpose of being
chorus tells of a martyr wandering alone not really being worth a whole lot. As the album winds down, the lyrics focus on finding meaning by oneself, despite uncertainty. Ultimately, “The Infinite Definitive” ends with uncertainty. “The feeling of a century, the movement in your mind, the puzzle is still incomplete, the honesty of time / Drawing down and passing by, the scenery is light, the silhouetted socialite without an alibi,” opens “Electric Dissolution,” the album’s final track. Whether or not the album provides an ultimate truth must be determined by the listener. The album itself, however, is a success either way. This thought provoking album is available on iTunes, Amazon and the Unknown Component website: http://unknowncomponent.com.
“The Infinite Definitive” is available for purchase through various digital retailers. Photo courtesy of Keith Lynch

Volleyball team looks hopeful for a MWC Tournament berth Josh DeGrasse-Baumann Editorial Staff
With two more conference games left in the regular season, the Carroll University volleyball team looks to secure a Midwest Conference Tournament berth for the first time since they won the event in 2007. The Lady Pioneers are 4-1 in their last five games, going 2-1 in their last three conference games. Carroll faced off against the Milwaukee School of Engineering Oct. 15 to start the stretch of games. Nicolette Rini led Carroll with eight kills in their sweep of MSOE. Heather Kulibert and Emily Goebert added seven and six kills respectively. The Raiders kept the first two games close, falling 25-22 to the Lady Pioneers in both. Carroll took control in the third game, however, dropping the Raiders 2514. Carroll took on Marian University later that day. The Knights took game one 25-23 to hand Carroll their first set loss since falling 3-1 against Monmouth Oct. 8. The Lady Pioneers bounced back to win the next three games. Game two was the closest Marian would get to a second set win, falling 2520. Carroll would keep the Knights under 15 points for the final two games. Rini and Gobert led the attack with 11 kills each. Carroll returned to Midwest Conference play against Lake Forest College Oct. 19. Rini recorded 10 kills followed by Megan Turckes and Danielle Hartmann respectively. Unfortunately, Carroll fell to the Foresters 3-1.
The Lady Pioneers dropped games one and two without breaking 20 points before winning game three 25-20. That score would be reversed in game four to put a stop to Carroll’s four match winning streak. Carroll returned to Van Male Field House Oct. 22 against Knox College. The Prairie Fire fell quickly, falling 25-18 in game one and 25-13 in games two and three. Amanda Trieloff and Hartmann led the Lady Pioneers with seven and six kills respectively. They matched up against Grinnell Oct. 23 to finish the five game stretch on a high note with a 3-1 win. Carroll won game one and the teams swapped the next two games before Grinnell dropped game four 25-18. Goebert registered 13 kills and Trieloff had 11. The Pioneers currently have a 4-3 record in the Midwest Conference, going 17-9 overall. The Pioneers host St. Norbert College Oct. 26 and then travel to Ripon to end their Midwest Conference season Oct. 30. “Our goal was to be at the top of the conference and make the conference tournament,” said Head Coach Becca Saal. “We need to win these last two games to get there.” St. Norbert currently sits at the top of the Midwest Conference with a 5-1 record. The Green Knights only Midwest Conference loss was to Grinnell at the beginning of October. “They will be tough, but we want to win. I’m confident the girls will play their best volleyball [for that match],” Saal said.

Men’s Soccer finishes with MWC Tourney berth If Ripon fails to win, Carroll would host for third straight year Josh DeGrasse-Baumann Editorial Staff
The Carroll University men’s soccer team finished the regular season 8-1 in the Midwest Conference, guaranteeing them a Midwest Conference Tournament berth. The Pioneers ended their season by shutting out four consecutive Midwest Conference opponents. Carroll hosted Knox College Oct. 16 for the first of their final four games. Scott Pease assisted Steve Koprowski to score a goal a little over seven and a half minutes into the game to give Carroll all the offense they would have needed, but Nick Tripoli and Jordan Wickman each scored a goal in the second half to drop the Prairie Fire 3-0. Adam Burk and Steve Koprowski assisted the respective goals. Knox managed only two shots on goal, both of which were saved by Tomek Miaskowski. The next day, Carroll took on Grinnell College. Pease set up an Andy Ksobiech goal in the third minute of the game to give Carroll an early 1-0 lead. The score would stand for the rest of the game. The Pioneers beat Beloit College Oct. 20 to extend their winning streak to three games. Ksobiech netted a goal at the 18:33 mark thanks to a Jordan Wickman assist to give Carroll a 1-0 lead at halftime. Wickman would score a goal of his own

just before the 71 minute mark with an assist by Koprowski. The win secured a fifth consecutive Midwest Conference tournament appearance for the Pioneers. Carroll returned to Schneider Sta-
dium for the final game of the season against St. Norbert College. Neither team scored in the first half despite taking a combined 10 shots. It wasn’t until the 82nd minute that Ksobiech netted the first and only goal
of the game with another assist by Koprowski. “I am very impressed with how the team finished the season, particularly given the way we started,” said Head Coach Rick Mobley. “I knew once we began to get healthy the results would turn in our favor.” The Pioneers finished 8-1 in the Midwest Conference. They are guaranteed to make an appearance in the Midwest Conference Tournament, but the location for the games won’t be decided until Oct. 30. If Ripon College fails to win against Lawrence University, Carroll would host the tournament for the third straight year. “It doesn’t really matter to us where the tournament is played,” Mobley said. “We’ve won the tourney at home and on the road in the past. We’ve also lost the tourney at home.” Last season, the Pioneers were knocked out of the tournament by Beloit after the game was taken into shootouts. The Pioneers fell 5-3 in the penalty kicks. The Pioneers were early season favorites to win the conference, so they’ll be looking for a better result in this year’s tournament. “I said from day one of preseason that if we could somehow find a way to get into the MWC Tournament, we would be a tough team to beat,” Mobley said. “We have just as good a shot as anyone to win two in row in the tourney. The field is going to be very competitive, but I like our chances.”

Pioneers struggle, bounce back in mwc play Stu Weis
After a tough loss the previous week to St. Norbert, Carroll bounces back in a big 35-0 win over Knox, extending their streak against the school to seven straight victories. Carroll needed the win against Knox to stay at the top of the conference standings and showed why they are legitimate conference contenders. The week prior, St. Norbert out gained Carroll 355-178. A big reason for this was Carrollinabillity to sustain drives, going just 1 for 11 on third down. After the St. Norbert game, coach Henny Hiemenz needed to rally the troops together to avoid losing two straight. He
felt that the focus to fix what went wrong in the St. Norbert game would be to have the offense stay on the field and finish drives. He added that Carroll averages between 70 and 80 plays a game but only managed 55 plays and needed to control the clock to going into the Knox game. Coach Hiemenz stressed that the team must win at least four of his seven keys every week for his team to win, and those would be stressed going into the Knox game: win first down, win third down, win the turnover battle, commit fewer penalties, win special teams, win the big play, and win in short yardage.
The Pioneers took those to heart as they won nearly all of the keys against Knox. The real difference, however, was that Carroll completely dominated in the trenches, outrushing Knox 281-112 and total yards 460-175. Joe Beckstrand and Drew Volkmann each had monster days, combining for 261 of the 281 yards rushing, three touchdowns, and getting eight and six and half yards per carry respectively. Defensively, Carroll continues to prove very stout, by keeping Knox under 200 total yards. The Pioneers are the number one ranked total defense and
have been unbelievable against the run, giving up a league low 69 yards per game. To put that into perspective, St. Norbert is second on rushing defense but they give up 123 yards per game, nearly double that of Carroll. Carroll sits atop the standings in conference with a four-way tie with Ripon, Illinois College and St. Norbert. They will finish the season with Monmouth and Grinnell, both one game back of first themselves. Nevertheless, Carroll is right in the thick of things for the conference title, which is leading up to a very exciting final two weeks of the regular season.

The Carroll University Swim team started their season Oct. 22 against UW-Whitewater. Both the men and women teams saw defeat in the first meet, but each team managed to come away with two event wins. The men’s first place were both claimed by Alex Mishun, who came away with 9 points in both the 1-meter and 3-meter diving competitions. Aleshia Garland won the 100-yard freestyle event with a time of 58.19. Danielle Grzywa secured the other event win with a 1:07.76 finish in the 100-yard backstroke. Both 200-yard medley relay teams finished about two seconds out of first.
The teams also combined to register nine second place finishes in individual events, but remained winless with their relay teams. Ultimately, the men lost the event 148-68 while the women lost 153-58, but the season is just beginning for this young team. Of the 19 total student-athletes on the two teams, the only seniors are Arthur Thomas and Maurice Telzlaff. Seven athletes are freshmen and five are sophomores. The teams return to action Oct. 30 when they head to UW-Oshkosh. They will host their first home meet of the season Nov. 6 against Marquette.

Lady Pios to host MWC tournament in November
Championship returns to Carroll for second year
Josh DeGrasse-Baumann Editorial Staff
The Midwest Conference Women’s Soccer Tournament will be hosted by Carroll University for the second consecutive year. The Lady Pioneers hosted Knox College Oct. 16. Kendell Uttech and Cody Callender each scored a goal in the first half, but the offense more than doubled that score after the half. Uttech scored two more to complete a hat trick and Amanda Leach netted a goal of her own just before the 83 minute mark. Freshman net-minder Taylor Mclean made three saves to preserve the shutout. The Oct. 17 matchup against Grinnell College saw a scoreless first half, but the Lady Pioneers scored 31 seconds into the second half off the foot of Kara Delie. Uttech assisted the goal. Grinnell would tie the game in the 64th minute and, about 15 minutes later, scored the game-winning goal to hand Carroll their first Midwest Conference regular season loss in 23 games. “The loss against Grinnell was rough,” said Callender. “They came ready to play and we did not. We learned that we can’t just show up and expect to win. We have to come ready
to play every game.” The Lady Pioneers suffered a second consecutive loss for just the second time this season when they fell 1-0 against nationally ranked #15 UW-Stevens Point. The Lady Pios held their own against the Pointers, not allowing the game winning goal until the 71:11 mark. Mclean recorded three saves in her 90 minutes of work between the posts. “[The game showed] how strong our defense is,” Callender said. “I don’t think they get the recognition they deserve.” Carroll would bounce back with a 5-1 win over St. Norbert Oct. 23. Uttech scored the only goal of the first half at the 7 minute mark thanks to an assist by Kelly Blenner. The second half would open with a 53rd minute goal by Kylie Ringelstetter. Sarah Tennant netted the third goal less than fourteen minutes later and Blenner added another goal three minutes after that. The Green Knights scored their only goal of the game in the 71st minute to avoid a shutout, but Carroll would go up by four again just a minute and a half later with a goal by leach. Carroll ended their Midwest

Conference schedule with a 9-0 trouncing of Ripon College. Callender netted the first goal after 1:16. Uttech scored 35 seconds later. Uttech scored her second goal of the game a little less than four minutes after her first. The Red Hawks swapped goalkeepers following the goal, but the Lady Pioneers had no intention of stopping. Sam Gavin, Natalie Jaeger and Kelly Moran each netted goals in the first half to give Carroll a 6-0 lead at the half. Callender scored her second goal of the game a little over four and a half minutes into the second half and Uttech completed a hat trick two minutes later by netting her third goal of the game. Delie netted the final goal of the rout in the 56th minute. She also had two assists in the game.
The Pioneers have one more regular season game against nonconference opponent Marian University at Schneider Stadium Oct. 27. After that, they will host their second straight Midwest Conference Tournament Nov. 5 and 6. Last season, the Pioneers beat Lawrence University and St. Norbert in the tournament to earn a sport in the NCAA Division III Tournament where they were knocked out of the first round in a 1-0 overtime loss to Illinois Wesleyan University. “As a team we feel very prepared for the conference tournament,” said Callender. “After coming out so flat against Grinnell, we fixed what we needed to and had very strong wins against [St. Norbert] and Ripon. We know what it will take to win the tournament and we are very prepared to do so.”

VOLLEYBALL UPCOMING GAMES
The final regular season game of Cody Callender’s collegiate career was certainly an explanation point. Just over a minute into the Oct. 24 game against Ripon College, Callender netted her 68th Midwest Conference goal, tying St. Norbert’s Sara Gross for the conference high in goals for a career. She netted her 69th goal four minutes into the second half. She also assisted Carroll’s final goal of the regular season to complete the 9-0 domination of the Red Hawks. Callender said she started playing soccer since she was five years old and has been playing ever since. “When I graduated high school, I thought about going to college and not playing soccer, but it just didn’t feel right,” she said. Four years later, she can reflect on what may be the greatest
four year span in Carroll women’s soccer history. During that four year span, Callender has broken several school records and is now Carroll’s leader in goals and points. “I could not have done it without all of my teammates and the hard work they put in each and every day,” said Callender. “They’re awesome.” Callender and her teammates are preparing for their fourth consecutive Midwest Conference Tournament, which Carroll will host Nov. 5 and 6. Callender plans to seek a job in teaching after she graduates, preferably looking for jobs in her hometown or in the Milwaukee area. “My ideal grade to teach would be 6th or 7th,” said Callender. For now, Callender can focus on trying to extend her Carroll career one game at a time with postseason play.
