Civil rights leader to send off grads nina linger the news record

University of Cincinnati graduates will get a chance to hear words of wisdom from “one of the remaining civil rights leaders on planet earth.” Civil rights litigator Nathaniel R. Jones will deliver this year’s commencement speech to UC graduates Saturday, June 12. Jones, who led human rights efforts in South Africa and the former Soviet Union, headed multiple court cases across the United States throughout the 1970s. Jones also spent time teaching at UC’s College of Law and, in 1996, selected UC as the official repository for documents pertaining to his career. “A university has to be a beacon,” Jones said. “Students have to bring some light that they have gotten from being exposed to that beacon.” Eric Abercrumbie, director of the AfricanAmerican Cultural Research Center, said it is anna bentley | the news record

Proposed legislation pushes for student loans to become part of bankruptcy

C

james sprague the news record

ollege students willing to take a major hit to their credit records might soon have a way to rid themselves of student loan debt. New legislation introduced by several congressional Democrats to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives would allow Americans to include private student loan debt when filing for bankruptcy. The 2005 Bankruptcy Reform Act, signed into law by former President George W. Bush, altered the bankruptcy code and forbid the discharge of educational loans given by private lending companies. The proposed legislation by U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Al Franken (D-MN) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) would restore the bankruptcy

code to its previous version before 2005 and allow for privately issued student loans to being included in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing allows a trustee to seize the assets of an individual, turn the assets into cash and then distribute the funds to creditors. However filings for Chapter 7 generally stays on a persons, credit record for 10 years. Chapter 13 bankruptcies, on the other hand, allow debtors to offer a plan to creditors to repay their debts during a three- to five-year time span. Chapter 13 filings stay on a credit report for seven years. A recent report titled “Who Borrows Most?” by the non-profit organization CollegeBoard showed that approximately 25 percent of graduates from baccalaureate programs have borrowed $30,500 or more in student loans. “Students using nonfederal loans to pay for college are of particular concern,” said Sandy Baum, one of the author’s of the report.

good for students to have the opportunity to hear Jones, whose work has left an impression for tomorrow’s leaders. “When he speaks, you stop and listen,” Abercrumbie said. Abercrumbie, who met Jones once before, said Jones was inspiring but not flamboyant. Abercrumbie wants Jones to give hope to the students and reassure them of their futures, despite the hardships that appear to be ahead. With the short amount of time allocated for his speech, Jones does not want to deliver a lecture to the graduates and their families.

Private student loans generally have higher interest rates and did not have the same repayment protection as federal student loans, Baum said. More than 20 percent of students have defaulted on education loans, totaling approximately $17 million since 2004, according to Department of Education statistics. The U.S. Department of Education’s 2008 and 2009 statistics are still being compiled because analysis takes two calendar years. The goal of the new bill would be to rectify the repayment protection and restore fairness in student lending, Durbin said. “[The] bill takes an additional step toward restoring fairness in student lending, by placing student loan companies in the same position as virtually all other private lenders,” Durbin said. Private student loans have no governmentimposed loan limit and have no public regulation regarding loan terms and costs, unlike student loans taken out from the federal government. “By repealing special treatment for private lenders, we will hold big banks accountable, protect young people from abusive lending practices and make college more affordable,” Whitehouse said.

“They’re there to celebrate their loved ones,” Jones said. Mitchel Livingston, vice president of UC’s Student Affairs and Services, is looking forward to the commencement speech, and said Jones demonstrates diversity in every sense of the word. “You cannot have university without diversity,” Livingston said. “Diversity of people, diversity of subject matter, diversity of backgrounds, experiences — diversity as it relates to the core mission of university.” Jones urges society to make diversity the norm, not the exception. UC’s mission for diversity might be expanded to affect neighborhoods, schools and religious institutions. Jones insists that, without the earliest heroes of civil rights, he, and many others, would not have been able to affect the country. He also strives to make sure the light of education is taken into the community. “People will notice you every time if you’re trying,” Livingston said about Jones’ efforts. Abercrumbie hopes for a similar message and said students need a purpose to strive for. “He is one of the remaining civil rights leaders on planet Earth,” Abercrumbie said.

New University of Cincinnati graduates might want to think twice before skipping town as soon as they turn their tassel. A recently published study from the websites Apartments.com and Careerrookie.com rank Cincinnati as eighth in a list of 10 cities best suited for recent graduates. The websites pooled their statistics and created the list based off of U.S. Census data regarding age demographics, average rent for a one-bedroom apartment and the number of open positions. The number of open positions came from those listed on the website CareerRookie.com — CareerBuilder’s site for people looking to hire recent grads. The city also has a fair share of flashy employers. Despite a recent drop putting in Fortune 500 companies in Ohio — 61 in 2009 to 23 in 2010 — Ohio leads the tri-state area. Kentucky and Indiana have six and five companies, respectively, according to Fortune 500 statistics. Cincinnati’s biggest employer, the University of Cincinnati, employs more than 15,800 people, according to city statistics. Kroger Co. and The Health Alliance follow with 15,600 and 14,785 respectively. Atlanta, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas and Boston topped off the top five cities for recent graduates, according to the survey.

“A university has to be a beacon. Students have to bring some light that they have gotten from being exposed to that beacon.”

Despite having two high-profile cases still under investigation, UCPD is still responding to dozens of reports every week. With a rash of serious criminal activity in recent weeks, UCPD is involved in multiple ongoing investigations. In the past week alone, UCPD reported to 14 separate incidents as of press time. The division has also arrested 13 people in May as, according to UCPD records. More than 30 reports resulted in arrest in May 2009, according to the records. Aside from those incidents, UCPD is warning students about a man who reportedly walks through campus, asks for money and doesn’t return it. Reginald Jenkins, 47, is currently listed by UCPD as being known for “scamming people out of money,” according to UCPD’s alert. Jenkins, who also goes by “Kevin,” allegedly tells students stories about a broken-down car, his mother’s wheelchair and how his father is a pastor and guarantees the money will be paid back. Although UCPD is currently searching for Jenkins, the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts records show Jenkins had run-ins with police authority before.

TNR Opinion online Check out Editor-in-Chief Taylor Dungjen’s exclusive video about how she has no clue what “business casual” actually means.

Currently, Hamilton County has approximately 15 cases against him for things ranging from theft to possession of cocaine. The Tuesday, May 4, school shooting that turned out to be a hoax is still being investigated. Details regarding the call that reported a shooting occurred, which originated from the Shoemaker Center on campus, have not provided investigators with enough information to make significant progress, said UCPD Capt. Karen Patterson. Although the Cincinnati Police Department received the call, it ended too soon for it to be traced, resulting in difficulty locating where it came from. Authorities ended up narrowing the source to three possible places, including the REGINALD Shoemaker Center. JENKINS The alleged rape near the Lindner Center, which was reported Monday, May 10, also has not developed further, although the victim met with both UCPD and a representative from the UC Women’s Center. Both cases will continue to be investigated, Patterson said. UCPD and CPD are rescheduling a special services demonstration after being rained out Wednesday, May 12.

PHOTOS PROVIDED BY SARA SHEPERD

CCM alumna experiences ups and downs of Broadway Ariel CHeung the news record

exit stage left Sheperd (right)worked with Becky Gulsvig, who plays Elle Woods, the main character in “Legally Blonde.”

For an actress who spent months pounding the pavement in New York City, Sara Sheperd is incredibly optimistic. Her curly brown hair and bright eyes give off a bouncy, confidence vibe. And, despite any setbacks she’s been through, Sheperd still has the upbeat attitude and peppy vocabulary of a freshly minted actress. That’s not to say she hasn’t had her ups and downs. Her first professional show “Cry-Baby” closed just three weeks after she got the job. “But I had my Broadway debut which is, you know, everyone’s dream,” Sheperd said. And the end of that dream was followed by approximately seven months of working at a wine bar and café in Rockefeller Center. But the way Sheperd sees it, she was lucky to just get a job so soon after graduating from the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music in 2008. The CCM senior showcase landed Sheperd an agent, who helped her score a role in “Cry-Baby” just five weeks after the showcase. “People are in New York for years and don’t get anything,” Sheperd said. “I just told myself, ‘I’m totally fine. I’m lucky enough to be here, working.’ ” The positive attitude paid off; after seven months of waiting tables and a stint in Long Island as Jo in “Little Women,” Sheperd was cast in the national tour of “Legally Blonde: The Musical.” But her life as an actress began long before Sheperd even heard of CCM. At five years old, Sheperd began taking acting, singing and dancing classes at the Toledo Repertoire Theater in Toledo, Ohio. “I don’t even know if I would know what theater was if it hadn’t been for the Rep,” Sheperd said. “Thank God for that.” Sheperd’s entire family was involved at the Rep, giving Sheperd a sense of unity even in troubled times. “I thought it was so cool how me and my sister [would be acting], my mom would be doing costumes and my dad was at the piano,” Sheperd said. “The entire family was involved in some way, even when my parents weren’t married, and I thought that was really cool.” Sheperd spent much of her time at the Toledo Repertoire and “practically lived there” throughout her youth. “It was like a second home, which was great,” Sheperd said. “I met people there who are still my best friends now, and I wouldn’t have known them if it weren’t for the Rep.” While theater was a hobby from an early age for Sheperd, she didn’t consider it as a career until much later. During her freshman year of high school, she was cast as Dorothy in “The Wiz” at Whitmer High School in Toledo. “The music is amazing,” Sheperd said. “I would rather do that show than ‘The Wizard of Oz’ any day.” Sheperd’s lead role helped her realize how much theater meant to her. “That was the first time I figured out ‘I think I have a voice in here,’ ” Sheperd said. “And it just felt fun and good to sing and from that point on, I thought maybe I could do this.” With her older sister Amelia studying musical theater at Wright State and parents very active in the theater community, Sheperd knew her aspirations were a possibility and decided to pursue theater more actively. During her senior year of high school, she attended a week-long program with the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts in Miami, Florida, along with future roommate and fellow CCM student Christy Altomare. After graduating high school, Sheperd was accepted into the musical theater program at CCM, where classes like audition technique and jazz helped her zone in and hone her talent. “I love CCM. I had a wonderful experience there,” Sheperd said. “I was really lucky; I got to play some amazing roles. Classes were amazing, especially when you get to your junior and senior year, you really start to super focus in on the career ahead of you.” And her education prepared her for one of her dream roles: Fanny Brice in “Funny Girl.” “Of all my dream roles, ‘Funny Girl’ would have been one of them,” Sheperd said. “As many times as I can play that, I’ll take it. It’s the role of a lifetime.” After finding she had been offered the lead role in Chicago’s Drury Lane Oakbrook’s regional production of “Funny Girl,” Sheperd put in her four-week notice for “Legally Blonde.”

“Funny Girl” is based on the story of 1920s comedian Fanny Brice and her path to fame, the setbacks of not being beautiful and glamorous and her relationship with gambler Nick Arnstein. “They don’t mesh, but they’re totally attracted to each other,” Sheperd said of Fanny and Nick. “You see them meet and their relationship forms. You see them fight for it the whole story.” Sheperd found her connection with Paul “THERE’S a Anthony Stewart, who played Nick and difference gave her the drive she needed to develop her between having role as Fanny. “I feel like so confidence and much of what I found being cocky. But if through the character was playing with you just him onstage and in the rehearsal room,” in yourself and Sheperd said. “You do need to sit down stick it out, it all and figure out what you want in the scene, pays off.” but then to actually get in the room, you get so much —Sara Sheperd in-the-moment stuff.” 2008 CCM alumna “Funny Girl” ran for about eight weeks, which was a long gig for a regional production, Sheperd said. After the show closed in April, Sheperd returned to “Legally Blonde” but switched roles. For the first six months, she played Kate, the nerdy sorority girl, and Chutney, the stepdaughter of Brooke Wyndham with quite the hairdo. After “Funny Girl,” Sheperd played several other minor roles, and was also given the chance to cover Vivian, Elle’s rival for Warner’s affections, and Paulette, Elle’s friend and hairstylist. When Sheperd was offered the part of Paulette for four nights, she was given the chance to “be on stage and own it.” But having only two rehearsals to practice made the experience a little unsettling. “[Paulette] doesn’t come in until 40 minutes into the show, so you have so much time to sit and think,” Sheperd said. “That was more nerve wracking. My thought was just, ‘Don’t forget your lines!’ ” “Legally Blonde” is playing at the Aronoff Center for the Arts through May 23. The tour will end in mid-August, giving Sheperd the chance to explore new opportunities. “I’ll be sad to see it go, but at the same time, I’m so excited to see what the future holds, because I have no idea,” Sheperd said. “But we’ll see.” One thing is for sure: Sheperd’s enthusiasm and love for her art will certainly keep her motivated and bright eyed. “So much of what we do means having confidence,” Sheperd said. “There’s a difference between having confidence and being cocky. But if you just believe in yourself and stick it out, it all pays off.”

Cyclones lose game three Kelly Cup lead cut in half after 2OT loss Sam Weinberg the news record

So far, home ice has proven to be a curse in the 2010 ECHL Kelly Cup Finals. In the third game of the seven-game series, the Cincinnati Cyclones fell 4-3 in double overtime to the Idaho Steelheads Tuesday, May 18, in the first of three-consecutive games at US Bank Arena. After once trailing the Steelheads 0-3, the Cyclones scored two goals in the third period to send the game into sudden-death overtime. With no team being able to score in the first overtime, it took just 50 seconds into a second before the Steelheads tallied the game-winning goal. “I thought the guys weren’t focused to start the game,” said Cincinnati head coach Chuck Weber. “We were turning over pucks which we don’t normally do and we got away form our simple game.” The Cyclones now hold a slim 2-1 series lead against the Steelheads after winning the first two games on Idaho’s home ice. The loss against the Steelheads also snapped Cincinnati’s six-game winning streak — a franchise record. Despite letting in three goals early on in the game, Cincinnati goalie Robert Mayer played a strong game, making highlight reel saves as he was one of the main factors in the Cyclones’ comeback. Mayer made 34 saves on the night and Cincinnati to stop all five of Idaho’s power-play opportunity. The first period of play was dictated by the Steelheads, dominating Cincinnati both offensively and defensively. The Steelheads outshot the Cyclones 13-5

heart-breaking goal University of Cincinnati pitcher Sam Slavik hangs his head as the Bearcats lost to Miami (OH) May 11. Slavik gave up five runs in 2 1/3 innings of work. and tallied two goals in the first period, with the first one coming off a breakaway seven minutes in and the second coming at the end of the period off a one-timer. The second period started how the first one ended, with the Steelheads controlling the tempo of the game and, six minutes in, Idaho found the back of the net again to take a 3-0 lead. “I thought what really killed us was the first thirty minutes, it really put us in a whole,” Weber said. With seven minutes left in the period, the Cyclones finally showed a glimmer of offense with a goal off a one-timer that was fired in by Brett Robertson and assisted by Will Ortiz. “I thought we really picked up the pace 10 minutes into the second period,” Weber said.

Down two and with the game on the line, the Cyclones stepped up big in the third period, scoring two goals to tie the game at 3. Jimmy Kilpatrick grinded in the first goal seven minutes into the period and with 3:30 left on the clock and the Cyclones on a power play, Mark Van Guilder blasted in another to send the game into overtime. “[The Steelheads] are considered the best team in the league right now,” Weber said. “We got to make sure we’re focused and ready to start on Thursday.” The Cyclones will face off against the Steelheads in game four of the series Thursday, May 20, at US Bank Arena.

Two men outside the BP gas station on the corner of Jefferson Avenue and Corry Street approached Gilyard, his brother Antonio and his bodyguard Terry Hobbs shortly after 9:30 p.m. Gilyard, 23, said one of the men was holding a .38 revolver and the pair made off with two gold and diamond chains worth $1,000 and almost $300 cash. No injuries were reported and police have not made any arrests. Police are looking for one suspect described as a 5-foot-7-inch black male in his 20s. Gilyard was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft after a Cincinnati career in which the Bunnell, Florida, native help lead the Bearcats to consecutive Big East championships. The News Record will continue to follow this story as more information becomes available.

andrew strenge named big east pitcher of the week After pitching eight innings and leading the University of Cincinnati baseball team to a 3-1 victory against the No. 22 Pittsburgh Panthers Sunday, May 16, freshman phenom Andrew Strenge was named Big East Conference Pitcher of the Week. Against the Panthers, Strenge recorded a career-high nine strikeouts and gave up eight hits to improve his season record to 6-1. Strenge became the first Bearcat rookie pitcher to earn the honor since Steve Blevins won it twice in 2006. In the 39 2/3 innings Strenge has pitched this season, he boasts a 1.82 earned run average and 36 strikeouts. Against Big East opponents, he has a .67 ERA.

BEARCATS BEYOND CINCINNATI From Peoria, Illinois, to Kodak, Tennessee, to Wellington, New Zealand. From Double-A baseball to World Cup soccer, two former Bearcats have found sporting success outside the Queen City.

En route to planet’s largest tournament

Tom Skeen the news record

It was just two years ago that Tony Campana was roaming the outfield and setting stolen-base records for the University of Cincinnati baseball team. Now he’s doing the same for the Tennessee Smokies. The Smokies are the Double-A affiliate for the Chicago Cubs, who drafted Campana in the 13th round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft. “[Getting drafted] was a dream come true,” Campana said. “It was something I always wanted. Everybody told me my size was a factor at first, but once I hit my junior and senior seasons, I knew it was possible.” The 5-foot-8-inch Campana is off to a great start in his first season with the Smokies. His batting average of .343 ranks third in the Southern League, while his on-base percentage of .410 ranks 10th. Campana has 47 hits this season, ranking first on the team and second in the SOL. “I went to spring training with the Cubs this year and it really helped me get ready [for the season],” Campana said. “I’ve just done a good job of putting the ball in play so far.” While he might not have a single home run in his professional career, he doesn’t strike out frequently, either. Campana has struck out just 21 times in 137 at-bats this season. As he did at UC, Campana is swiping bases and terrorizing pitchers and catchers with his speed. He leads the Southern League with 14 stolen bases this season. After being drafted in 2008, Campana played in the Rookie League for most of the season, where he hit .277 and stole 22 bases. In 2009, he moved up to Single-A baseball where he played for the Peoria Chiefs and Daytona Cubs. He spent just 18 games with Peoria before moving up to high Single-A ball with Daytona. The hitting continued for Campana, as he hit .284 and swiped 66 bags. The high-level play was rewarded and Campana was called up to Double-A to begin the 2010 season. “[The call-up] worked out well,” Campana said. “Single-A helped me get a year under my belt and getting more experience was big for me.”

Campana has continued his success on the base paths at the professional level. He holds the UC record for steals in a career (104), steals in a season (60) and steals in a game (6). In his first two-plus professional seasons, Campana has stolen 102 bases. At his current pace, Campana is well on his way to breaking the Smokies club record of 57 stolen bases in a season, set by Lonnell Roberts in 1995. “In college, I just got on and knew I was stealing,” Campana said. “Now, it’s knowing when and having to judge what the pitcher is going to throw. I have to know when to go.” The centerfielder has been a key piece to the Smokies’ hot start. They own first place by two games in the Southern League’s North Division. “We have a good mix of guys,” Campana said. “Our speed, power and pitching are all doing well. I’m getting on and they are getting me in. We are all playing well together.” With the Chicago Cubs well-stocked on outfielders and Campana turning 24 years old later this month, the wait for the big leagues could be on hold for a few years. “I’m playing to get to the big leagues,” Campana said. “ I going to stick with my game and hopefully they will have room for me up there.” Campana’s success hasn’t been for just one year; he has shown the ability to hit at every level he’s competed at. “I’m just having so much fun winning and playing well,” Campana said. “It doesn’t get much better.”

Hunter Tickel the news record

Roughly 8,400 miles away from the University of Cincinnati, former Bearcat Tim Brown received the news that he had been selected to New Zealand’s 2010 World Cup team. “We had a domestic camp here in New Zealand and then I went to a big press conference and they named the team,” Brown said. Brown was a Bearcat from 2000-03. He made 71 appearances and was a three-year starter. He earned a wealth of awards: academic All-American honors, All-Ohio, All-Conference USA and All-Region. Brown credits his college soccer career at UC for molding him into the player he is today. The school provided him with a scholarship that paved the way for him to become a professional athlete on the world’s biggest stage. “I don’t think I could have gotten here without playing at Cincinnati,” Brown said. “The way that we moved up as a soccer power in Cincinnati inspired me to take my game as far as I could.” Brown will serve as vice captain of the national team, nicknamed the All Whites, a role he has served since 2007 and is still surreal to him. “It’s a massive honor and something I try not to take for granted,” Brown said. “It’s something that I don’t think I ever thought would happen.” New Zealand is an infant on the world stage, having failed to qualify for the World Cup in 28 years since the nation’s lone appearance. Brown will have plenty of butterflies as he steps on the field for his first tournament game of the world’s most-watched sport. “I imagine there will be lots of nerves,” Brown said. “With privilege comes an awful lot of responsibility. It’s been [a while] since we last qualified for a World Cup and it’s a really important time for [soccer in] New Zealand.” Brown has made 27 international appearances for New Zealand since his debut in 2004, but has yet to find the back of the net for his country. “[Scoring at the World Cup] would be tremendous,” Brown said. “I think I’d lose it.” Brown remains in touch with his former Bearcat teammates despite

living on the other side of the planet and plans to attend former teammate Tom Weable’s wedding in the United States next year. Weable, along with three other former teammates, will travel to Brown’s matches at the World Cup in South Africa this summer. Weable remembers one of Brown’s shining individual moments at UC. The Bearcats had a kick-off after cross-town rival Xavier had scored and Brown noticed the Xavier goalkeeper was off his line after celebrating. “He drove the ball 70 yards into the upper corner of the goal,” Weable said. “It was by far the best goal I have ever seen.” Brown has played professionally in Australia’s A-League with the Wellington Phoenix since 2007, but says he misses the camaraderie he had with coaches and teammates at Cincinnati. Making the NCAA tournament in 2003 — his final season — was the highlight of his career as a Bearcat. Brown and the All Whites will kick off their first of three opening-round games against Slovakia Tuesday, June 15, and can be seen on ESPN at 7 a.m. Brown said within the squad there is a belief that New Zealand can advance past the group stage. “I think it would be massive. We would shock the world,” Brown said. “There is a quiet confidence we can pull it off.”

he’s a thief Tony Campana spent just two seasons in a Bearcat uniform, but that was plenty of time to steal 104 bases and set a school record. In his first two-plus minor league seasons, the speedy centerfielder has swiped 102 bases.

No grander stage Tim Brown started in all 71 games through his four-year UC soccer career. The midfielder scored eight goals for the Wellington Phoenix last season and will co-captain the New Zealand team at the 2010 World Cup.

PHOTOS PROVIDED BY SARA SHEPERD

CCM alumna experiences ups and downs of Broadway Ariel CHeung the news record

exit stage left Sheperd (right)worked with Becky Gulsvig, who plays Elle Woods, the main character in “Legally Blonde.”

For an actress who spent months pounding the pavement in New York City, Sara Sheperd is incredibly optimistic. Her curly brown hair and bright eyes give off a bouncy, confidence vibe. And, despite any setbacks she’s been through, Sheperd still has the upbeat attitude and peppy vocabulary of a freshly minted actress. That’s not to say she hasn’t had her ups and downs. Her first professional show “Cry-Baby” closed just three weeks after she got the job. “But I had my Broadway debut which is, you know, everyone’s dream,” Sheperd said. And the end of that dream was followed by approximately seven months of working at a wine bar and café in Rockefeller Center. But the way Sheperd sees it, she was lucky to just get a job so soon after graduating from the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music in 2008. The CCM senior showcase landed Sheperd an agent, who helped her score a role in “Cry-Baby” just five weeks after the showcase. “People are in New York for years and don’t get anything,” Sheperd said. “I just told myself, ‘I’m totally fine. I’m lucky enough to be here, working.’ ” The positive attitude paid off; after seven months of waiting tables and a stint in Long Island as Jo in “Little Women,” Sheperd was cast in the national tour of “Legally Blonde: The Musical.” But her life as an actress began long before Sheperd even heard of CCM. At five years old, Sheperd began taking acting, singing and dancing classes at the Toledo Repertoire Theater in Toledo, Ohio. “I don’t even know if I would know what theater was if it hadn’t been for the Rep,” Sheperd said. “Thank God for that.” Sheperd’s entire family was involved at the Rep, giving Sheperd a sense of unity even in troubled times. “I thought it was so cool how me and my sister [would be acting], my mom would be doing costumes and my dad was at the piano,” Sheperd said. “The entire family was involved in some way, even when my parents weren’t married, and I thought that was really cool.” Sheperd spent much of her time at the Toledo Repertoire and “practically lived there” throughout her youth. “It was like a second home, which was great,” Sheperd said. “I met people there who are still my best friends now, and I wouldn’t have known them if it weren’t for the Rep.” While theater was a hobby from an early age for Sheperd, she didn’t consider it as a career until much later. During her freshman year of high school, she was cast as Dorothy in “The Wiz” at Whitmer High School in Toledo. “The music is amazing,” Sheperd said. “I would rather do that show than ‘The Wizard of Oz’ any day.” Sheperd’s lead role helped her realize how much theater meant to her. “That was the first time I figured out ‘I think I have a voice in here,’ ” Sheperd said. “And it just felt fun and good to sing and from that point on, I thought maybe I could do this.” With her older sister Amelia studying musical theater at Wright State and parents very active in the theater community, Sheperd knew her aspirations were a possibility and decided to pursue theater more actively. During her senior year of high school, she attended a week-long program with the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts in Miami, Florida, along with future roommate and fellow CCM student Christy Altomare. After graduating high school, Sheperd was accepted into the musical theater program at CCM, where classes like audition technique and jazz helped her zone in and hone her talent. “I love CCM. I had a wonderful experience there,” Sheperd said. “I was really lucky; I got to play some amazing roles. Classes were amazing, especially when you get to your junior and senior year, you really start to super focus in on the career ahead of you.” And her education prepared her for one of her dream roles: Fanny Brice in “Funny Girl.” “Of all my dream roles, ‘Funny Girl’ would have been one of them,” Sheperd said. “As many times as I can play that, I’ll take it. It’s the role of a lifetime.” After finding she had been offered the lead role in Chicago’s Drury Lane Oakbrook’s regional production of “Funny Girl,” Sheperd put in her four-week notice for “Legally Blonde.”

“Funny Girl” is based on the story of 1920s comedian Fanny Brice and her path to fame, the setbacks of not being beautiful and glamorous and her relationship with gambler Nick Arnstein. “They don’t mesh, but they’re totally attracted to each other,” Sheperd said of Fanny and Nick. “You see them meet and their relationship forms. You see them fight for it the whole story.” Sheperd found her connection with Paul “THERE’S a Anthony Stewart, who played Nick and difference gave her the drive she needed to develop her between having role as Fanny. “I feel like so confidence and much of what I found being cocky. But if through the character was playing with you just him onstage and in the rehearsal room,” in yourself and Sheperd said. “You do need to sit down stick it out, it all and figure out what you want in the scene, pays off.” but then to actually get in the room, you get so much —Sara Sheperd in-the-moment stuff.” 2008 CCM alumna “Funny Girl” ran for about eight weeks, which was a long gig for a regional production, Sheperd said. After the show closed in April, Sheperd returned to “Legally Blonde” but switched roles. For the first six months, she played Kate, the nerdy sorority girl, and Chutney, the stepdaughter of Brooke Wyndham with quite the hairdo. After “Funny Girl,” Sheperd played several other minor roles, and was also given the chance to cover Vivian, Elle’s rival for Warner’s affections, and Paulette, Elle’s friend and hairstylist. When Sheperd was offered the part of Paulette for four nights, she was given the chance to “be on stage and own it.” But having only two rehearsals to practice made the experience a little unsettling. “[Paulette] doesn’t come in until 40 minutes into the show, so you have so much time to sit and think,” Sheperd said. “That was more nerve wracking. My thought was just, ‘Don’t forget your lines!’ ” “Legally Blonde” is playing at the Aronoff Center for the Arts through May 23. The tour will end in mid-August, giving Sheperd the chance to explore new opportunities. “I’ll be sad to see it go, but at the same time, I’m so excited to see what the future holds, because I have no idea,” Sheperd said. “But we’ll see.” One thing is for sure: Sheperd’s enthusiasm and love for her art will certainly keep her motivated and bright eyed. “So much of what we do means having confidence,” Sheperd said. “There’s a difference between having confidence and being cocky. But if you just believe in yourself and stick it out, it all pays off.”

Cyclones lose game three Kelly Cup lead cut in half after 2OT loss Sam Weinberg the news record

So far, home ice has proven to be a curse in the 2010 ECHL Kelly Cup Finals. In the third game of the seven-game series, the Cincinnati Cyclones fell 4-3 in double overtime to the Idaho Steelheads Tuesday, May 18, in the first of three-consecutive games at US Bank Arena. After once trailing the Steelheads 0-3, the Cyclones scored two goals in the third period to send the game into sudden-death overtime. With no team being able to score in the first overtime, it took just 50 seconds into a second before the Steelheads tallied the game-winning goal. “I thought the guys weren’t focused to start the game,” said Cincinnati head coach Chuck Weber. “We were turning over pucks which we don’t normally do and we got away form our simple game.” The Cyclones now hold a slim 2-1 series lead against the Steelheads after winning the first two games on Idaho’s home ice. The loss against the Steelheads also snapped Cincinnati’s six-game winning streak — a franchise record. Despite letting in three goals early on in the game, Cincinnati goalie Robert Mayer played a strong game, making highlight reel saves as he was one of the main factors in the Cyclones’ comeback. Mayer made 34 saves on the night and Cincinnati to stop all five of Idaho’s power-play opportunity. The first period of play was dictated by the Steelheads, dominating Cincinnati both offensively and defensively. The Steelheads outshot the Cyclones 13-5

Pat Strang | the news record

heart-breaking goal Cincinnati goalie Robert Mayer watches helplessly as Evan Barlow’s game-winning goal in double overtime gave Idaho a 4-3 win Tuesday, May 18. and tallied two goals in the first period, with the first one coming off a breakaway seven minutes in and the second coming at the end of the period off a one-timer. The second period started how the first one ended, with the Steelheads controlling the tempo of the game and, six minutes in, Idaho found the back of the net again to take a 3-0 lead. “I thought what really killed us was the first thirty minutes, it really put us in a whole,” Weber said. With seven minutes left in the period, the Cyclones finally showed a glimmer of offense with a goal off a one-timer that was fired in by Brett Robertson and assisted by Will Ortiz. “I thought we really picked up the pace 10 minutes into the second period,” Weber said.

Down two and with the game on the line, the Cyclones stepped up big in the third period, scoring two goals to tie the game at 3. Jimmy Kilpatrick grinded in the first goal seven minutes into the period and with 3:30 left on the clock and the Cyclones on a power play, Mark Van Guilder blasted in another to send the game into overtime. “[The Steelheads] are considered the best team in the league right now,” Weber said. “We got to make sure we’re focused and ready to start on Thursday.” The Cyclones will face off against the Steelheads in game four of the series Thursday, May 20, at US Bank Arena. The puck drop is set for 7:30 p.m.

briefs mardy gilyard robbed at gunpoint in cincinnati Former University of Cincinnati wide receiver Mardy Gilyard was robbed at gunpoint near UC’s campus Monday, May 17. Two men outside the BP gas station on the corner of Jefferson Avenue and Corry Street approached Gilyard, his brother Antonio and his bodyguard Terry Hobbs shortly after 9:30 p.m. Gilyard, 23, said one of the men was holding a .38 revolver and the pair made off with two gold and diamond chains worth $1,000 and almost $300 cash. No injuries were reported and police have not made any arrests. Police are looking for one suspect described as a 5-foot-7-inch black male in his 20s. Gilyard was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft after a Cincinnati career in which the Bunnell, Florida, native help lead the Bearcats to consecutive Big East championships.

BEARCATS BEYOND CINCINNATI From Peoria, Illinois, to Kodak, Tennessee, to Wellington, New Zealand. From Double-A baseball to World Cup soccer, two former Bearcats have found sporting success outside the Queen City.

It was just two years ago that Tony Campana was roaming the outfield and setting stolen-base records for the University of Cincinnati baseball team. Now he’s doing the same for the Tennessee Smokies. The Smokies are the Double-A affiliate for the Chicago Cubs, who drafted Campana in the 13th round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft. “[Getting drafted] was a dream come true,” Campana said. “It was something I always wanted. Everybody told me my size was a factor at first, but once I hit my junior and senior seasons, I knew it was possible.” The 5-foot-8-inch Campana is off to a great start in his first season with the Smokies. His batting average of .343 ranks third in the Southern League, while his on-base percentage of .410 ranks 10th. Campana has 47 hits this season, ranking first on the team and second in the SOL. “I went to spring training with the Cubs this year and it really helped me get ready [for the season],” Campana said. “I’ve just done a good job of putting the ball in play so far.” While he might not have a single home run in his professional career, he doesn’t strike out frequently, either. Campana has struck out just 21 times in 137 at-bats this season. As he did at UC, Campana is swiping bases and terrorizing pitchers and catchers with his speed. He leads the Southern League with 14 stolen bases this season. After being drafted in 2008, Campana played in the Rookie League for most of the season, where he hit .277 and stole 22 bases. In 2009, he moved up to Single-A baseball where he played for the Peoria Chiefs and Daytona Cubs. He spent just 18 games with Peoria before moving up to high Single-A ball with Daytona. The hitting continued for Campana, as he hit .284 and swiped 66 bags. The high-level play was rewarded and Campana was called up to Double-A to begin the 2010 season. “[The call-up] worked out well,” Campana said. “Single-A helped me get a year under my belt and getting more experience was big for me.”

Campana has continued his success on the base paths at the professional level. He holds the UC record for steals in a career (104), steals in a season (60) and steals in a game (6). In his first two-plus professional seasons, Campana has stolen 102 bases. At his current pace, Campana is well on his way to breaking the Smokies club record of 57 stolen bases in a season, set by Lonnell Roberts in 1995. “In college, I just got on and knew I was stealing,” Campana said. “Now, it’s knowing when and having to judge what the pitcher is going to throw. I have to know when to go.” The centerfielder has been a key piece to the Smokies’ hot start. They own first place by two games in the Southern League’s North Division. “We have a good mix of guys,” Campana said. “Our speed, power and pitching are all doing well. I’m getting on and they are getting me in. We are all playing well together.” With the Chicago Cubs well-stocked on outfielders and Campana turning 24 years old later this month, the wait for the big leagues could be on hold for a few years. “I’m playing to get to the big leagues,” Campana said. “ I going to stick with my game and hopefully they will have room for me up there.” Campana’s success hasn’t been for just one year; he has shown the ability to hit at every level he’s competed at. “I’m just having so much fun winning and playing well,” Campana said. “It doesn’t get much better.”

Hunter Tickel the news record

Roughly 8,400 miles away from the University of Cincinnati, former Bearcat Tim Brown received the news that he had been selected to New Zealand’s 2010 World Cup team. “We had a domestic camp here in New Zealand and then I went to a big press conference and they named the team,” Brown said. Brown was a Bearcat from 2000-03. He made 71 appearances and was a three-year starter. He earned a wealth of awards: academic All-American honors, All-Ohio, All-Conference USA and All-Region. Brown credits his college soccer career at UC for molding him into the player he is today. The school provided him with a scholarship that paved the way for him to become a professional athlete on the world’s biggest stage. “I don’t think I could have gotten here without playing at Cincinnati,” Brown said. “The way that we moved up as a soccer power in Cincinnati inspired me to take my game as far as I could.” Brown will serve as vice captain of the national team, nicknamed the All Whites, a role he has served since 2007 and is still surreal to him. “It’s a massive honor and something I try not to take for granted,” Brown said. “It’s something that I don’t think I ever thought would happen.” New Zealand is an infant on the world stage, having failed to qualify for the World Cup in 28 years since the nation’s lone appearance. Brown will have plenty of butterflies as he steps on the field for his first tournament game of the world’s most-watched sport. “I imagine there will be lots of nerves,” Brown said. “With privilege comes an awful lot of responsibility. It’s been [a while] since we last qualified for a World Cup and it’s a really important time for [soccer in] New Zealand.” Brown has made 27 international appearances for New Zealand since his debut in 2004, but has yet to find the back of the net for his country. “[Scoring at the World Cup] would be tremendous,” Brown said. “I think I’d lose it.” Brown remains in touch with his former Bearcat teammates despite

living on the other side of the planet and plans to attend former teammate Tom Weable’s wedding in the United States next year. Weable, along with three other former teammates, will travel to Brown’s matches at the World Cup in South Africa this summer. Weable remembers one of Brown’s shining individual moments at UC. The Bearcats had a kick-off after cross-town rival Xavier had scored and Brown noticed the Xavier goalkeeper was off his line after celebrating. “He drove the ball 70 yards into the upper corner of the goal,” Weable said. “It was by far the best goal I have ever seen.” Brown has played professionally in Australia’s A-League with the Wellington Phoenix since 2007, but says he misses the camaraderie he had with coaches and teammates at Cincinnati. Making the NCAA tournament in 2003 — his final season — was the highlight of his career as a Bearcat. Brown and the All Whites will kick off their first of three opening-round games against Slovakia Tuesday, June 15, and can be seen on ESPN at 7 a.m. Brown said within the squad there is a belief that New Zealand can advance past the group stage. “I think it would be massive. We would shock the world,” Brown said. “There is a quiet confidence we can pull it off.”

he’s a thief Tony Campana spent just two seasons in a Bearcat uniform, but that was plenty of time to steal 104 bases and set a school record. In his first two-plus minor league seasons, the speedy centerfielder has swiped 102 bases.

No grander stage Tim Brown started in all 71 games through his four-year UC soccer career. The midfielder scored eight goals for the Wellington Phoenix last season and will co-captain the New Zealand team at the 2010 World Cup.
