SG gets help for 2010-11 preparations
It will be closing its doors in June, but the University of Cincinnati’s Center for Access and Transition showed it would go out with style at its year-end awards ceremony. “A Celebration of Success,” was hosted in French Hall Wednesday, May 26, commemorating both CAT students and faculty performance throughout the year. Many current and former CAT students and faculty were in attendance, and awards were presented to distinguished CAT students. Despite the imminent closure of the center, the atmosphere of the awards ceremony was a light and happy one, while a jazz band performed and appetizers were served.

UCPD, CPD display special units, tactics for university students
The University of Cincinnati’s Undergraduate Student Government began preparing for a powershift Wednesday, May 26. Although student body Vice President Mark Rooney is currently in Europe as an international student, SG’s administration was looking to keep the momentum going. President Drew Smith announced the decision of UC’s Student Advisory Committee (SACUB) to award the body thousands of dollars in addition to its allotted budget. The platform Smith and Rooney ran on, which stressed “stronger connections” and “stronger futures,” requires money to make good on the campaign’s promises, Smith said. SG’s involvement in the First Year Experience, for example, will be able to improve with the extra money. In all, Student Government will have approximately $60,000 to operate on for the next year, Smith said. The Smith Administration also uses its internal budget for its town-hall style meetings. Retreats and other functions SG hosts are also funded by its budget. The body’s cabinet also saw some changes, with the introduction of several new positions ranging from the associate vice president of campus relations to a director of disability services. Ryan Atkins, one of five Pi Kappa Alpha honorary members involved in the car accident in Kentucky last November, said there are some things that could be done to make UC’s campus more accessible for those with disabilities.

FOURTH-YEAR CRIMINAL JUSTICE STUDENT
Students quiz first provost candidate

University of Cincinnati students often only see special police units in the movies, but Cincinnati Police and the UC Police Division gave them the opportunity to experience the real thing. A joint UCPD/ CPD special services demonstration was hosted on McMicken Commons Wednesday, May 26, showcasing the departments’ special units, its equipment and its purpose. CPD had its Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit on display, in addition to its canine, mounted horseback, motorcycle and crash response teams. UCPD also brought out its bomb robot and Segway for students to see. The event afforded students an opportunity to see police in a different perspective, said Devin Coulter, a fourth-year criminal justice student and president of the UC Criminal Justice Society. “[The demonstration] gives a positive example of the police,” Coulter said. “It shows they can be approached as real people.” The attitude of the students was also unexpected, Coulter said. “The police are surprised,” Coulter said. “Students are actually asking questions and looking around at the equipment.” The demonstration provided students to also see what aspects there are concerning police work, Coulter said. Students were able to
take part in activities like donning SWAT gear, using a radar gun in a police vehicle, reconstructing an accident scene and even being placed in handcuffs. “I’m enjoying it,” said Jack Addison, a first-year criminal justice student who attended the event. “It gives me an insight on what I want to do in criminal justice.” The event raised a lot of interest in the criminal justice field, said Cpt. Dan Gerard, commander of CPD’s special services section, which includes the SWAT, canine and mounted patrol units. “A lot of students have asked about jobs in law enforcement,” Gerard said. “They’ve also asked about the best things to major in for law enforcement.” One of the canine officers, a German shepherd named Recon, showed up late for the demonstration due to an incident call, Gerard said. “He was on a case concerning an armed robber,” Gerard said. Most people have a misconception about the police not being friendly, but they enjoy taking the time to talk to students and demonstrate equipment, said Sue Bourke, a criminal justice professor at UC. “CPD is just an amazing police department,” Bourke said, regarding their work. A lot of CPD officers are enrolled in UC degree programs, Bourke said. “Chief Streicher has recommended that every officer at least get their bachelor’s degree to assist with promotions,” Bourke said.
“[The demonstration] gives a positive example of the police.”

UC President Greg Williams briefly attended the event, greeting students and faculty from CAT before leaving for a meeting off campus. Williams would not comment on CAT’s closure. “I’m here for the CAT students,” Williams said. UC Provost Anthony Perzigian was the featured speaker for the event and praised the students and their efforts. “We’re here to celebrate the contributions of the students,” Perzigian said. “It’s truly a reflection of the ambition of our students.” Perzigian also gave a nod to the CAT faculty for their performance. “[CAT faculty] showed an unswerving dedication to what’s best for our students,” Perzigian said.
University of Cincinnati students were given a glimpse into provost candidate Steve Dorman’s plan for the school Wednesday, May 26. Dorman, a North Carolina native, currently serves as dean of the College of Health and Human Performance at the University of Florida, had a seat with more than a dozen UC undergraduates and answered questions about his candidacy and what things he’d do if he was chosen as the next provost. He expressed a strong need to continue co-ops, help interuniversity relationships flourish and become one premier research institution. “The problems of our society today are very complex,” Dorman said. “Some of the most valuable experiences [for students] are outside the classroom.” The University of Tennessee graduate said UC is poised to move forward to become the “premier research institution.” Students on the panel stressed worry about keeping the university working cohesively as more of UC’s colleges merge. Dorman, who also served as chairman of Texas A&M University’s Health and Kinesiology department, said communication was one of the most important things within a school.

Gin ’n JAZZ
gin a. ando
entertainment Arm the Masses to release EP covering campus and beyond
Sean Peters the news record
Improvisational music does not equal jazz Without a few founding fathers — including blues in general — jazz wouldn’t be what it is. Or was, at least. I made it a point to try to not mention my hypocrisy when it comes to jazz, but I guess I just can’t help it. Earlier in the month, my friend Adam told me he went to a record store. After speaking with the cashier (or helper, whatever) about getting started with a jazz collection and mentioning some of his favorite artists, he was labeled as something of a newbie. And therefore not worth the clerk’s time. I’m not that bad. I don’t really consider myself a music snob by any means, but I like music a lot. To the point where all I can really think about after getting out of the office at The News Record is going home and listening to some Long Tall Dexter. That’s not really the point, though, because I think I might have finally come to the realization that I’m an elitist. I’d like to think it’s not the same thing, but, deep down, I know it is. Now, jazz is my music of choice. It’s a free expression of emotion and, what I think, the most pure form of emotion humans can convey to other people. Hard bop and bebop can be done by someone who’s masterful at ballads, too. Jazz musicians aren’t constrained by a “genre” per se. They’re constrained by music. Despite my indifference for Wynton Marsalis’ music, I have to say I subscribe to a mindset attributed to the famed trumpeter: jazz is free-form music. I can hear jazz in everything, but everything is not jazz. Marsalis, and myself consequently, can be considered as barriers to the growth and exploratory nature of jazz. But still. Just because there are electric guitars in a song doesn’t make it rock and roll. Violins don’t make something classical (Dave Matthews Band is not classical, classy or good.). Similarly, just because there is improvisation in something, it isn’t jazz. I cringe every time I hear the saxophone in “Careless Whisper,” which makes me want to crash my car into a black hole while lighting myself on fire. Hopefully the afterlife has nothing to do with synthesizers, either. Then, if there is such a thing as an afterlife, I hope I can meet Adolphe Sax and tell him all the havoc his invention has caused. Then have a cocktail with Dex. Music changes; that’s just the nature, I suppose. I have to even be happy that jazz exists and how the blues birthed it. However, I really can’t deal with some of the stuff being labeled as jazz nowadays. Jazz changes, I can deal with that. I can cope with avant-garde styles and seemingly random phrases and dissonance. I’ve had a moment of clarity while listening to Albert Ayler tunes. For instance, listen to a song like “Giant Steps” by John Coltrane. Then, listen to “Spiritual.” Then listen to “Ascension.” It’s the same guy, but you can hear an evolution in the way he plays. “Ascension” can sound like noise, I admit, but that’s just how it turned out. That was Trane’s expression, which is beautiful. Pharaoh Sanders is virtuosic, too, in the song. It’ll take me a while to fully understand what’s being said — if it’s anything at all — but I’m confident I’ll be able to someday. On the other hand, even if something sounds good, it isn’t necessarily jazz. The Jazz Messengers played jazz. You can hear some bluesy parts of songs, but there’s nothing holier than Art Blakey, Wayne Shorter, Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons and the bass lines of Jymie Merritt. It doesn’t get better than that. Really. Forget all the fog machines and playing to sold-out crowds in auditoriums and huge venues. Jazz is meant to be played in an intimate place for an intimate experience, even if it reminds of you going on a bender and sinning in bulk. Think about it. I’ll leave with a quote, not even mine, but one of the great Duke Ellington. “By and large, jazz has always been like the kind of a man you wouldn’t want your daughter to associate with.” Send any and all jazz tips to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Local metalcore act Arm the Masses is slated to release their debut EP June 19. The News Record was able to catch rhythm guitarist and founding member, Taylor Pfaltzgraff for a Q&A session. The News Record: How long has the band been together? Taylor Pfaltzgraff: “Arm the Masses has been around since 2007. The current lineup has been playing together for only a month.” TNR: I heard the band just got a new van. How’s it treating you?

“Amityille Horror” house up for grabs robert kirchgassner the news record

Where’s ryan reynolds? This infamous haunted house could be yours, if the horror stories haven’t spooked you.
The house in Amityville, New York, which everyone now knows as the house from “The Amityville Horror” (1979), was put on the market Monday. The Dutch Colonial, five-bedroom home, located on the south shore of Long Island at 112 Ocean Ave. (although the address has since been changed to keep the curious away), is up for $1.15 million. This was just another family home until November 1974, when its owners, the DeFeos, were shot and killed in their sleep along with four of their children. The couple’s eldest son, Ronald Jr., was convicted of the murders by reason of insanity and is currently serving six consecutive 25-year sentences at the Green Haven Correctional Facility in Beekman, New York. At his trial, he repeatedly stated he heard voices while living in the house; voices which were constantly telling him to commit murder. These claims of possession gained more attention when the home’s next owners,

They stayed in the house only 28 days ... They claimed that demonic forces were in the house. George and Kathy Lutz, fled the house with their three children and none of their possessions Jan. 14, 1976. They stayed in the house only 28 days. Like DeFeo, they claimed that demonic forces were in the house. There was evidence, however, which later emerged to suggest that Lutz basically used the DeFeo incident in an attempt to ease himself of his escalating debts. The next owners of the home were Jim and Barbara Cromarty, who purchased it in March 1977. They reported no supernatural activity and even stated, in a television interview on the show “That’s Incredible!,” that much of the house was in the same state of disrepair as when the Lutzs bought it. Neighbors also said that nothing unusual occurred while see amityville | page 4

The former Cincinnati Bearcat will travel to Madison with the team and serve as an additional coach and mentor to Redd. “Ben’s been working with him all week,” Back said. “He’s making the trip to help out with Rob and tell him what he sees and what Rob should be seeing in the game situations.” Despite the new face at the game’s most important position, Back has no plans of slowing down Cincinnati’s pedal-to-the-metal offense, a unit that leads the CIFL in total offense, scoring offense
and passing offense with Mauk at the helm. “We’re still going to push the up-tempo offense. That’s our offense. We’re not going to vary it,” Back said. “Rob can run the offense just as uptempo as Ben can, it’s just that we’ll be doing more play calls from the bench this week than we have in the past.” Mauk threw six touchdowns in the Commandos’ 48-26 win against Wisconsin at the Cincinnati Gardens Saturday, April 10. Since the loss, the Wolfpack has gone 5-1 to clinch a playoff berth. “We know Wisconsin’s a great team,” Back said. “They’re in second place in this league. We beat them at our place, but in the second time around anybody can game plan different for you.”

intact, but they’ve lost a little bit of the magic that made the game so special. When watching “Prince of Persia,” it’s quickly evident that this is a Disney movie. Several unnecessary characters are introduced midway through the film that don’t really add anything but some “comic relief.” I use quotes because no comic relief is really needed in the film. It’s just an awkward addition that jars the viewer. The character garnered some laughs for sure, but not due to the hilarity of the jokes but rather by the sheer ridiculousness of the situations. The film as a whole is par for the course for a summer movie. Fight scenes are plentiful, the men are muscle bound, the women are gorgeous and the action scenes were filmed with great care. Special kudos must be given the time reversal sequences when the dagger of
time is used. It is a beautiful sequence and doesn’t get old as the film progresses. Also, I must commend the filmmakers for their little nods to the game series. Dastan’s initial costume, his wall running, the marks on Dastan’s arm when he reverses time and the chain whip an enemy uses are all references to the “Sands of Time” trilogy. But other than these little nods, video game fans are left with little else to grasp onto. “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” is a decent action movie. It has some entertaining elements, but they are brought down by the confusing parts. The acting is workable, but nothing award winning. In the end, we are left with a typical action movie: OK in its own right, but when compared to the brilliant source material it is based on, I was hoping for more.

Jimmy Jacquot in the fifth and, after a run by Scott in the sixth inning, the Bearcats held a 6-3 lead — their largest of the game. Down three with four at-bats left in the game, the Huskies’ bats caught fire, scoring three runs in the bottom of the sixth. Two more runs in the seventh inning and one more in the eighth was enough to put the Bearcats away and seal the win for the Huskies. Scott led the Bearcats offensively, going 2 for 3 with one run and two runs batted in. The tournament is double elimination and, despite the loss, the Bearcats will have a chance at redemption against the No. 3-seeded Pittsburgh Panthers Thursday, May 27. The opening pitch is set for 10 a.m. “[Pittsburgh] swings the bats so well, they’re tough to shut down,” Cleary said. “We’re going to have to play great defense, there’s no question about that.”

He did acknowledge that a university might have rifts between colleges. “We put up silos sometimes,” he said. “Sometimes intentionally, sometimes unintentionally.” To both help bringing the university back into a cohesive unit and smooth out budget problems, Dorman recommended a state of constant contact. Dorman presented his current situation at UF, which is also experiencing budgetary reshuffling. His experience in the changes will make him a good fit for UC, he said. “I don’t have a bag of tricks I’m going to bring,” Dorman said. “Any time you roll out another budgetary model, there are good things that
happen and unforeseen things that happen.” Students curious about the semester change also presented Dorman a few questions about the shift in 2012. By working with deans, administrators and advisers, Dorman said UC — or any university — can attain a state of unity. “Much of it is already set in motion,” Dorman said. “[There needs to be] clear communication. Continuous communication almost to the point of over-communication.” The next open provost question and answer session for undergraduates is slated for 11:35 p.m. to 12:15 p.m., June 2, in Room 407 of Teacher’s College.

Lutz’s lived there and there were no police presence on the day they left. Some claimed that Lutz’s haunted house story was simply a way to make money. Nevertheless, his claims turned the home and the events that occurred there into a media sensation. In 1977, a book entitled “The Amityville Horror,” by journalist Jay Anson, shot to the top of the bestseller lists. It recounts the Lutz’s nightmarish experiences in the house as they related them to Anson. George and Kathy continued to maintain that their experiences were the truth until Kathy’s death from emphysema in 2004 and George’s from heart disease in 2006.
Naturally, the book’s success led to the film of the same name two years later in which James Brolin and Margot Kidder played the Lutzs. The movie became a smash and even spawned several sequels, including a more elaborate remake in 2005. Although my favorite haunted house films are “House on Haunted Hill” (1959), “The Shining” (1980) and “Poltergeist” (1982), “Amityville” has a nice, creepy feel to it that was utterly lacking in both its sequels and its remake. I imagine it would be tough selling a house like this, given its history. If it isn’t ghosts that the prospective buyer would have to deal with, it’s people stopping by to gawk, especially on

Halloween. Still, Jerry O’Neill, an Amityville real estate agent, believes the house would still be an ideal family home. “It’s a gorgeous, big center-hall colonial with a finished basement,” he told Newsday. “Nothing spooky about it.” Although others have lived in the home since the Lutzs (none of whom have reported seeing ghosts), it’s understandable that not many people (myself among them) would want to live there. I can also understand, though, why many people are willing to put up the money to travel to Long Island to see the place, so perhaps the house should simply be made into a haunted house attraction.

The entire university, Perzigian said, might have also underappreciated the passion and perseverance of the CAT faculty. “That is an injustice if that wasn’t widely appreciated,” Perzigian said. David Shepherd, co-director of CAT, directed the praise toward the students. “On behalf of the faculty and staff, you are our reward,” Shepherd said. Current and former CAT students also presented speeches at the event, describing how the center prepared them for success. “We’re products of your teaching and your help,” Jonathan Jennings, a third-year German studies student, told the audience. “Thank you to CAT for showing me the road to my future.” Jay Jay Dailey, a second-year psychology and human resources student, reiterated the impact of
CAT on students. “CAT gave me another chance at an opportunity that only comes once in a lifetime,” Dailey said. Mitchel Livingston, vice president for student affairs, closed the ceremony by relating his educational career to the audience. Livingston recounted how a high school counselor told him he did not have college potential and how it affected him. “I went off to college with every deficiency you could have,” Livingston said. “But once I entered my organic chemistry class, I realized I’m as good as anybody in here.” Livingston emphasized CAT students were deserving of the awards and could achieve further success. “This moment is for each one of you today,” Livingston said. “If I can do it, I know damn well so can you.”

Texting ban opens doors for stupid laws People and their cell phones are an inseparable pair, but that pairing can often get some into trouble when they get behind the wheel of a car. That kind of trouble has led for some to call on Ohio lawmakers to draft a law prohibiting individuals from texting while driving. A bill to do just that has already passed in the Ohio House of Representatives and is now awaiting a vote in the state Senate. Those who find it necessary to ban certain irresponsible actions, such as texting while driving, must also find it perfectly acceptable to ban similar actions that might cause equally dangerous distractions. Fidgeting with the dials on a radio can be a typical distraction as is lighting a cigarette and smoking while behind the wheel. I guess restaurant drive thrus would have to be closed as well since eating and drinking while driving would lead to distraction. Many women like to put on makeup while driving to work, but that would have to be banned also. Having too many passengers in the car, or even having rowdy kids in the backseat, represent a huge distraction to a driver and would therefore also have to be prohibited. If we go even further, reading maps, road signs, billboards or bumper stickers would need to be banned since they clearly divert one’s eyes and attention away from the road. Some people don’t get enough sleep and still they decide to drive impaired, so let’s throw another ban in that direction. Or, to save going through all the trouble of banning each individual and specific thing, why don’t we just ban cars altogether and rely on buses, trains or taxis to get us from one place to another. That would really get to the root of the problem and be much safer. The point I’m trying to make with all these ridiculous examples is that a line needs to be drawn somewhere. What’s the point in banning some actions instead of others that could be equally distracting? What’s distracting to one person might not be distracting to another. A lot of people are good at multitasking and are able to pull off any number of the examples I listed above and still manage to somehow drive without causing any major accidents or hurting anyone. Let me make it perfectly clear to anyone out there reading this and getting all hot and puffed up by what I’m saying. I am by no means advocating doing anything that could potentially be dangerous to yourself and others while driving your car or saying it’s OK. I try to refrain from using my cell phone as much as possible while driving because I understand the risks involved and want to remain as safe as possible. Instead of conjuring up some law to force people to act in a way that some think is responsible enough to drive, we should place a stronger focus on advocating more personal responsibility. Let’s promote common sense instead of laws that aren’t effective or practically unenforceable. (I’m willing to guess (and this is obviously my own personal opinion) that the majority of these initiatives to create new driving laws and bans are only taken up by governments because of the revenue they’ll drag in through increased fines and tickets. Many can oppose these kinds of victimless crimes because they punish those who have yet to actually injure anyone or aggress toward any individual. Driving laws, and all laws for that matter, should only focus upon the actual action someone takes rather than a potential action one might take. It makes more sense to me to punish someone who is actually driving recklessly rather than someone who is simply using their phone. If someone is on their phone and then causes an accident, I’m all for punishing that individual for their reckless driving. But up until the point that their action directly interferes with someone else’s safety, that person is only exhibiting bad judgment rather than a punishable crime.
The passing of Arizona’s bill on illegal immigration in April has stoked what was an already raging fire concerning immigration standards in the United States. Tempers have flared, people have protested and accusations have been hurled between sides. In the debate regarding illegal immigration, however, both sides have stooped to a new low. A low that shows just how little our country has progressed concerning race but also how little we have learned from history. That low is the use of a cartoon character, Dora the Explorer, as a symbol in the duel of illegal immigration. An image of Dora is circulating on the Internet, showing her in a mug shot with a black eye, bloody nose and busted lip. The card states that she is charged with illegally crossing the border and resisting arrest. Debbie Groben of Sarasota, Florida, created the picture as a joke for a contest on the fake news website FreakingNews.com. A Facebook page has even been created around
Dora’s immigration status, showing the children’s character jumping over a fence in the desert. Both sides in the immigration battle have adopted the illegal immigrant Dora image and used it mercilessly to illustrate their view points. Their use of it also shows just how poor the American attitude still is toward race. Various governments and groups throughout history have used propaganda utilizing cartoon characters to illustrate what is more often than not a prejudicial view toward an ethnic group. During WWII, the Nazi regime disseminated propaganda showing Jewish cartoon characters devouring American, Russian and English characters. This was done in order to promote the Nazi view that the Jewish population was responsible for not only WWII, but also the ills of the world. American movie company Warner Brothers had to lock up 11 cartoons in their vaults, with titles such as “Tokio Jokio” and “Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs,” because of their inflammatory racist content. Do we, a supposedly enlightened American society that reputedly promotes tolerance and

diversity, want to act like a bunch of racists and Nazis? “Dora is kind of like a blank screen onto which people can project their thoughts and feelings about Latinos,” Erynn Masi de Casanova, a sociology professor at the University of Cincinnati, told the Associated Press. “They feel like they can say negative things because she’s only a cartoon character.” If this is truly the case concerning the image of Dora as an illegal immigrant, it shows our country hasn’t come any further in the battle against racism. It just shows that society has only transferred its prejudice from African Americans to Latinos. The game is the same, only the names have changed. That is a sad statement on our country.

Dismiss texting ban, use common sense Sometimes it’s really hard to ignore compelling text messages from your friends. Other times, it’s far easier to ignore a simple “Hey, sup?” text while weaving through traffic on I-71 during peak rush hour. But do you believe the city of Cincinnati is in the position to mandate whether or not you can text while driving? Most young adults have already sent thousands upon thousands of text messages in the past five years and, as a result of this normalization, we view it as a completely normal means of communication. Why does the Ohio House of Representatives believe that a texting-while-driving ban will curb cell phone use in motor vehicles? It’s safe to assume nearly everybody with a cell phone has texted while driving. There’s no shame, guys, really. While it might be a distraction if you’re behind the wheel, it’s debatable whether or not texting while driving should be a punishable offence — there are plenty of far worse (sexier?) things to do in a moving vehicle. If a police officer can accost you when he sees
a cell phone in your hand while driving, imagine what doors will open to enable the police and highway patrols to abuse their power. If you’re unlucky enough to be wrongfully pulled over for allegedly texting, there are so many misinterpretations that could be had on the police’s behalf. Several (currently) legal actions look exactly like texting: consulting a map and changing the song on your iPod are two examples that come to mind. Do you need laws to determine what you should and shouldn’t do in every situation? Have you ever heard of something called common sense? Looking at many people’s driving habits: it’s no secret we’re all multitasking far beyond our limited capacities. That does not necessarily indicate a new law should be passed. Aside from the important driving laws — namely those forbidding motor vehicle operation under the influence of mindaltering chemicals — legislating our every action will likely not reduce texting while driving — it

The News Record
F OUNDED I N 1 8 8 0 The News Record, an independent, student-run news organization of the University of Cincinnati’s Communication Board, is printed during the school year every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, except holidays and examination periods, from its office located in 509 Swift Hall and is distributed to the UC community. The News Record distributes to more than 80 locations and has a weekly circulation of 22,500. One copy per person is free. Additional copies can be picked up at The News Record office for $1.
means drivers will be fined for yet another overbearing law intended to punish drivers under the guise of protection. Of course, there is some sound reason for passing this law. Some people simply cannot function on the road with distractions. Some people will not learn the lesson of self-control and personal responsibility just by observing their own ability to drive and text. Perhaps these are the drivers who need to be punished in order to make that decision. As a whole, though, drivers should understand what they can and cannot accomplish in the realm of road safety. And what of a deaf driver, to whom cell phones are worthless tools of communication when text messaging is disallowed? Perhaps a deaf motorist is in need of assistance on the highway, where it would be less safe to pull over on the side of the road to send a simple text message. What Cincinnati really needs are safer roads — free of our notorious potholes and debris — not another law that will result in exorbitant fees.
Going without The News Record for extended periods of time might cause the following: 1) Sporadic confusion 2) Dizzyness 3) Dazed look 4) Constantly refreshing newsrecord.org 5) Blurred vision
Many students and faculty might find these symptoms are at an all-time high this summer. The only known cure for any of these symptoms is to check newsrecord.org for news updates.

Mauk out for season finale
Sam Elliott the news record
If the Cincinnati Commandos want to finish the regular season with a perfect 10-0 record, they’ll have to do so on the road and without starting quarterback Ben Mauk against the Wisconsin Wolfpack Saturday, May 29. “Ben’s dinged up with an ankle injury. We’re going to save him for the playoffs,” said head coach Billy Back. “We want to be perfect and we’re making this trip to Wisconsin to win, but I can’t afford to get Ben injured any more than he already is.” Mauk sustained a high ankle sprain against Chicago Saturday, May 15, and was bothered by the lingering injury last week against
Longtime editor says goodbye It’s weird to think this will be the last column I’ll ever write for The News Record. I’ve worked for the newspaper for three years now — two as an editor — and I’ve seen many students and good friends come and go. To be honest, I never thought the time would come when I would be the one leaving. As I look around the office on my third-to-last day as editor, I think it has finally sunk in how much I’m going to miss this place. And to think, it all could’ve never happened. Five years ago, when I first arrived at the University of Cincinnati, I started out as a business major and hated every minute of it — the finance, operations management, accounting, etc. I didn’t know what I wanted to do, but I knew I didn’t want to continue being miserable. Like many students, I was searching for a career I could take pleasure in. There aren’t many people out there who can say they actually enjoy going to work every day. I feel lucky to be able to say I found something I truly love and can take pride in. The moment I realized I wanted to be a sports journalist was at the end of my sophomore year. I was hanging out at former sports editor Bo Jessee’s house on Ohio Avenue and we were discussing the possibility of changing our majors. Bo was a political science student at the time and, while we were chilling on his couch, he was telling to me how he had covered his first baseball game for the school newspaper. He showed me his article in the paper and I was shocked, to say the least. “No way you had an article published in the paper,” I told him in amazement. At the time, I never thought of Bo as a sports writer. Boy, was I wrong. He went on to become one of the best writers to work at The News Record. Bo continued to tell me how much fun he had covering the game and how he was thinking of changing his major to journalism. I thought to myself, “Bo is right. What could be better than going to games and writing stories about your favorite teams and players?” I walked down to the paper the next day, received my first assignment from former sports editor Chris Crawford and the rest, as they say, is history. I truly believe everything happens for a reason and never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be so lucky to experience so many great moments in University of Cincinnati sports history during the next three years. It’s been incredible. I’ve had the privilege to cover the Orange Bowl, the Sugar Bowl, witness the rise of the football program and sit courtside in press rows next to the “Big O” at countless UC basketball games. I will always remember the good times, but even more I will miss the great friends I made along the way: Bo Jessee, last time I checked, you owe me 10 bucks for those bets we made last week. No, its not $5. Remember, we bet $10 on the Suns-Spurs series. Yeah, I know, they take and they take. Thanks for all the great times and helping me become a better writer. Kareem Elgazzar, I remember telling you to come down to The News Record after our PR class one afternoon. You told me you didn’t want to put your stuff out there, but boy have you changed. You helped the paper become what it is today, and you have the best work ethic of anyone I know. You’re a star, you’re made for the grind and I can’t wait to see your photos and stories in a bigtime newspaper one day. And, of course, I only run Elgazzar. Garrett Sabelhaus, I’m going to miss all of the great times we had in the office. Your impressions and movie quotes will be sorely missed. I know you’re destined to become a great radio guy, keep up the good work. Sam Elliott, it’s been a pleasure working with you this year and it’s good to know that the sports page will be in goods hands. I’ll miss chilling with you on your sweet deck after work, and hopefully one day we’ll be yachting on The Reg. Gin A. Ando, you’ll never work in this town again! Well, actually you will. Good luck next year. I know you’ll do a great job of continuing The News Record’s success. see Farewell | page 4

commanding the troops Head coach Billy Back raises his voice during Cincinnati’s 49-46 win May 22.
Fort Wayne, throwing a season-high four interceptions in Cincinnati’s 49-46 win. “Last week, what kept us from being really successful offensively was Ben not being able to utilize his ability to scramble,” Back said. “We’ll get him 100 percent healthy and have him ready to go for the playoffs.” Wide receiver Robert Redd will start at quarterback for the Commandos when Cincinnati faces the Wolfpack (6-2) at Hartmeyer Arena in Madison, Wisconsin. In eight games as a wide receiver this season, Redd caught 23 passes for 238 yards and 12 touchdowns. “I’m 100 percent confident in Robert Redd running the show,” Back said. “You’d like to have Ben out there, but you play the hand you’re dealt. I wouldn’t have Robert Redd as my No. 2 quarterback if I wasn’t confident in his abilities to lead us.” Back still hopes the Commandos can achieve a perfect regular season, but keeping his key players healthy is the coach’s top priority. “You want to be perfect, that’s what I’ve stressed the whole year. But what’s more important is the championship,” Back said. “We’re sitting guys out because they’re dinged up, and I don’t want to cause see Commandos | page 4
BEARCATS FALL IN FIRST ROUND UC faces elimination against Pittsburgh Sam Weinberg the news record
Eamon Queeney | the news record
Season on brink After a first-round loss to UConn in the Big East tournament, the UC baseball team will face elimination against the Pitt Panthers.
In the first round of the 2010 Big East Baseball Championships, the No. 7-seeded University of Cincinnati baseball team fell 9-6 to the No. 2-seeded University of Connecticut Huskies Wednesday, May 26, at Bright House Field in Clearwater, Florida. “We misplayed some fly balls and didn’t play very well defensively,” said UC head coach Brian Cleary. “We made it easy for them to score some runs.” Both the Bearcats and the Huskies came into the game with hot bats, averaging 6.6 and 8.6 runs per game in their past five games, respectively. The break each team had going into the tournament did nothing to cool their hot offenses. Cincinnati recorded seven hits while Connecticut had 12 and at least one team scored a run in eight of the nine innings of play. Until the last three innings, the lead went back and forth with five changes throughout the game. After making quick work of the Bearcats in the top of the first inning, the Huskies wasted little time in getting on the board. In the bottom of the first, Connecticut’s leadoff hitter Pierre LePage blasted a triple to right field and was brought home by the Huskies’ next batter with a sacrifice fly. In the top of the second inning, the Bearcats would answer back with two runs of their own. On his first swing, Bearcat junior Justin Riddell crushed a ball over the fence to tie the game. Then, after having two straight batters walked, Bearcat senior Jamal Scott singled to left field to score freshman Jake Proctor and give the Bearcats a 2-1 lead. Connecticut would quickly answer back, tallying one run in the second and forth innings. But once again their lead would be short lived as Scott hit a double in the top of the fourth to drive in sophomore T.J. Jones and tie the game at three. The Bearcats took the lead in the fifth inning with a solo home run by Jones. Kevin Johnson batted in fellow senior see Baseball | page 4
Cincinnati sends 13 to Regionals Jason Garrison the news record
The University of Cincinnati track and field team leaves for Greensboro, North Carolina, Thursday, May 27, to participate in the NCAA Regionals to compete against collegiate athletes from all over the eastern side of the United States. The meet begins Friday, May 28. Antione Drakeford will compete in the 400 meters, the same race in which he won a Big East championship. Drakeford, Ethan Freet, Maurice Norman and Chase VanCura will compete in the 4 x 400 relay. Eric Finan will compete in the 5,000-meter race after placing second at the Big East Outdoor Championships Sunday, May 2. Terrence Somerville and Brandon Fitch will be going to represent the Bearcats in the 110-meter hurdles and the high jump, respectively. Rick King will run in the steeplechase. In the field events, Troy Cooper and Chris Littleton will compete in discuss throwing, Brian Zimmerman will compete in the javelin throw and Kayla Dunn and Michelle Eby will compete in the pole vault competition.
“To have that many people go to the NCAA championships, I’d say we’ve had a very good year,” said men’s head coach Bill Schnier. “We have a good team and good individuals.” Forty-eight student athletes will compete in each event in the East Regionals. The goal is to finish in the top 12 in a competition in order to qualify for the NCAA finals in Eugene, Oregon, June 9. Zimmerman, ranked fourth in the javelin throw in the region, is the highest ranked athlete among the Bearcats in his event. “I really feel like Brian has a great opportunity to become an All-American this year,” said throwing coach Susan Seaton. “He’s seeded fourth in the region right now, and he has a great work ethic. He’s super excited, and I think he will go down there and possibly win the east region and put himself in position to be an All-American at the NCAA Finals.” To be an All-American, an athlete has to finish in the top eight at the NCAA Finals. Zimmerman is currently ranked 20th nationally. “We have a really good group going out there,” Schnier said. “We’re really excited about it and we’re going to do the best we can.”
