The University of Cincinnati balanced its budget despite substantial asset losses caused by the biggest recession since the 1930s. The university posted asset losses of $301 million in fiscal year 2009, according to a report released by the Ohio Board of Regents March 30. “When the stock market went down, our endowment went down,” said James Plummer, UC’s vice president of finance. The university’s endowment lost almost 26 percent of its market value between June 2008 and April 2009, according to the official budget report for fiscal year 2010. The university does not expect any further losses this fiscal year, according to the budget report. Although the figure might look steep, UC wasn’t the only school that experienced a loss. “We did better than a lot of schools out there,” Plummer said. “We actually did better than Harvard.” Despite drop, the university did manage to meet a balanced budget, Plummer said.

The report also states the new policy was passed in hopes of improving the university’s ability to cope with emergencies. The report also goes as far as planning for making up past financial losses. The university will set aside $10 million every year to reduce the structural deficit and to eliminate negative fund balances that had accumulated in the years before the Structured Deficit Policy see stocks | page 2

Despite the amount of alcohol on and around the University of Cincinnati’s campus, students might be surprised at the amount of arrests for alcohol-related incidents. As of March 2010, the UC Police Division responded to 13 incidents in which someone was arrested for alcohol-related charges. During that same span, UCPD made 16 arrests in drug-related incidents. Although the number of people being arrested might seem low, a significantly larger amount of people were “referred for disciplinary action.”

In 2008, 176 individuals on UC’s main campus were referred, though only 19 of the cases resulted in arrests, according to statistics from the Office of Postsecondary Education, a branch of the U.S. Department of Education. The overall proportion of arrests to referrals was approximately 11 percent. Alcohol-related arrests on campus for four-year public institutions came in at approximately 28,000, according to Department of Education statistics. “Remember that these are only for on campus, so this is really not the whole picture,” said Karen Patterson, UCPD assistant police chief. “It is, however, very eye opening.”

Do you think UCPD is prompt in their response to criminal reports on campus?

One University of Cincinnati student is questioning how seriously the UC Police Division is about crime after having her vehicle broken into on campus. The student, who wishes to remain anonymous, allegedly waited approximately 15 minutes for a UCPD officer to arrive at the Calhoun Street parking garage after a vehicle break-in Thursday, April 22. “I was so scared,” the student said. “I didn’t know if [the perpetrator] was still up there.” The student arrived to the vehicle after class to find the back passenger window popped out of its frame, the doors unlocked and the glove compartment opened. The incident was reported at 8:50 p.m., according to UCPD report logs. “The response time depends on several things like the type of crime, if the crime is occurring at the time and the location of the officer,” said Capt. Karen Patterson, assistant chief of UCPD. The officer was dispatched from the Old Chemistry building at 8:50 p.m. and arrived at Calhoun garage at 9:01 p.m., Patterson said. The student called UCPD a second time while waiting on the officer to respond to ask the dispatcher why the response time was taking so long. Upon responding, the officer said he was on foot because the department was trying to cut back on gas, the student said. Calhoun garage had 14 incidents of theft from vehicles, criminal damaging and receiving stolen property in April, out of 24 reports from all campus parking garages, according to UCPD report logs. Past surveys conducted by UC Public Safety have shown the biggest complaint of the UC community was the lack of officers on foot, Patterson said. “He was walking so slow,” the student said. The responding officer was also nonchalant in his response, the student said. see UCPD | page 2

was passed, according to the plan. “I wish [the recession] hadn’t happened, but it did,” Plummer said. Good budgetary news comes amid good fundraising news. The university’s Proudly Cincinnati campaign is well on its way to making its mark of $1 billion by 2013, according to recent reports by the UC Foundation. In spite of the recession, the program had raised more than $652 million as of March 19. The program, topped $500 million in June 2009, and raised

more than $150 million during the recession. The good news did not stop a tuition hike, however. On March 16, the Board of Trustees approved the first tuition hike in three years. The adjustment will increase tuition by 7 percent, putting the annual tuition at more than $10,000 for the first time in the university’s history. The tuition hike is the only way the university can avoid cutting programs and services, especially if state funds are cut due to the recession, said UC Spokesperson Greg Hand.

The response time for the officer concerning the incident was reasonable, Patterson said. “If this had been a crime in progress or if it involved a person being physically harmed, then an officer in a vehicle would have been sent instead,” Patterson said. Nothing of value was taken from the vehicle, the student said. The student also asked the officer why he wasn’t using one of the two Segways, a motorized personal transport vehicle, used by UCPD. The responding officer said one Segway had a faulty battery and the other a flat tire, the student said. “They have a $700 Taser on their belt, but they can’t fix a flat tire?” the student said. Patterson confirmed both UCPD Segways were in the shop waiting to be fixed. “Our goal is to keep the average response time for emergency runs to five minutes or less,” said Gene Ferrara, director of the UC Public Safety department. “Periodic reviews of radio logs indicate we are successful.” Several arrests have been made in the campus parking garages through the efforts of plain-clothes officers and the use of a bait car. Uniformed officers also

make multiple tours through campus garages, Patterson said. Vehicle break-ins on campus are one of the easiest crimes to prevent, Ferrara said. “Don’t bring items to campus that you don’t need,” Ferrara said. “If you bring personal items to campus, take them with you when you leave the car parked.” If the person can’t leave the item at home or keep them on their person, then the item should be placed in the vehicle trunk. This should be done before the person exits the vehicle, Ferrara said. “Thieves watching people park their cars and put items in the trunk only have to wait until the driver leaves,” Ferrara said. “Then they break into the car and release the trunk lock from inside the car.” The student says she cannot trust UCPD anymore. “The people who are doing these things illegally are getting away with it,” the student said. The student has plans to purchase a Taser and install a security system at home due to the incident. “I’m terrified now,” the student said.

Cinco De Mayo food for thought

Viva la Mexico! Cinco de Mayo is nearly here. What began as a celebration of an unlikely victory for Mexico over the French in the Battle of Puebla is now a broader celebration of Mexican culture throughout North America. Spring is here, and soon everyone will have a hankering for a fajita. Luckily, Cincinnati’s growing Hispanic community has infused the area with a big helping of Latin flavor, both inside and outside of local restaurants. But Cincinnati is a big sprawling suburban city with plenty of nooks and crannies in which great restaurants hide. Sometimes finding the perfect meal and atmosphere for a particular occasion can be a challenge. It should never be a chore figuring out where to get your fiesta on — but never fear, I’ve compiled a list of four Mexican restaurants around the Cincinnati area that are Cinco de Mayo eats worthy. Where better to celebrate the victory at the Battle of Puebla than Cincinnati’s own El Pueblo? This busy, bustling Blue Ash staple boasts sunny decor, an outdoor patio and some of the best Mexican food in Cincinnati. The menu is large but not daunting, and food is fresh and authentic. I’ve always said you can judge a bona fide Mexican restaurant by whether or not they have mole sauce (not to mention how good it is) and El Pueblo’s got it in spades. El Pueblo is a fabulous place to go with friends and its fun, raucous atmosphere is conducive to a good time. Taqueria Mercado is truly a hidden gem of authentic Mexican eats. The little restaurant is tucked inside a strip mall entirely occupied by Mexican storefronts in Fairfield. When you step inside, you feel instantly transported south of the border. Taqueria houses a small bar with telémundo flickering on the television and a crowd of regulars. The restaurant is most famous for — you guessed it — tacos. Taqueria Mercado offers a variety of beyond-authentic tacos from carnitas, carne asada, al pastor, pollo and chorizo and for the more adventurous they even offer tripe (stomach) and lengua (tongue). All are served with a healthy dose of cilantro, and at $2.25 apiece you can try a few. But tacos aren’t the only thing Taqueria Mercado does well; they also offer burritos as big as your head, tortas and tostados. And the best news yet, Taqueria Mercado just opened a new location downtown at 8th and Walnut streets, so now the border is closer than ever. For those looking for a truly festive atmosphere, Tostado’s Grill is no stranger to it. The Mexican joint by day, karaoke bar by night offers good food and a good time noon, afternoon or night. The restaurant offers Grade A Mexican selections and a diverse mix of Cincinnati-inspired German bar fare, such as sauerkraut balls. And to get the party started, the grill has a full bar with a variety of spirits to get you loosened up for your personal rendition of the song of your choice. If the thought of listening to other people sing their favorite Lynyrd Skynyrd song inside the restaurant makes you cringe, the grill also features a large, lovely and lilac-lined patio in the heart of Columbia Tusculum directly across the street from The Precinct. The patio features a corn hole set for those so inclined and fire pit for chilly evenings. Rincon Mexicano has occupied the low-profile space between the DanBarry Dollar Saver Cinemas and Bigg’s in Eastgate for what seems like forever. It has outlived the nowdefunct super grocery store (set to close in mere weeks) and the cinema’s multiple changing of hands throughout the years. While Eastgate development has suffered, Rincon has continued to flourish, and for one reason: their delicious authentic Mexican fare made from scratch. Rincon Mexicano boasts a small cantina but a large, warm dining space decorated with bright murals but plenty of mood lighting. The high-backed booths offer an element of intimacy and privacy, suited for dinner conversation, but Rincon also has large tables to accommodate large parties. Their menu includes the sacred mole sauce, burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, vegetarian offerings and a long list of house specialties.

Professor pushes for civility james sprague the news record

LisaMarie Luccioni, a professor of communication at the University of Cincinnati, has led a push on campus to spread the word about May as International Civility Month. The purpose of International Civility Month is to spread a positive message across the globe that heightens public awareness about the meaning of civility and helps people embrace the code of conduct, according to the

graphic courtesy of lisamarie luccioni

Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) website. The code consists of three aspects — respect, restraint and responsibility. The event, sponsored by the AICI, was recently added to Chase’s Calendar of Events. Chase’s was founded in 1957 and has become the foremost authority on keeping track of special days, weeks and months celebrated throughout the nation and world, such as Black History Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Luccioni’s campaign is part of UC’s Just Community initiative, which strives to create cohesiveness, pride and appreciation for diversity among the UC community. “Civility is a powerful and important thing to get UC involved with,” Luccioni said. Luccioni worked with both Mitchel Livingston, chief diversity officer at UC, and Provost Anthony Perzigian in bringing attention to International Civility Month. Luccioni’s initiative was brought before UC President Greg Williams, who issued a certificate of support regarding the campaign.

No UC president had ever issued such a certificate. “It’s pretty symbolic and impressive,” Luccioni said. The campaign will focus on four areas of civility — sharing respect, respecting technology, respecting professional image and respecting cultural diversity. Four teams of 10 students were assigned to work on each area and were given $80 to use for resources for the campaign. Many students ended up using their own resources for the project, Luccioni said. “The students had to take a little and make it a lot,” Luccioni said. Kendall Adkins, a fifth-year graphic design student in the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning, designed the logos for the UC portion of International Civility Month. The designs will be on banners and signs placed throughout the university during May. see civility | page 4

Marketers buying consumer loyalty lauren magrisso the news record

While college campuses across the country have to tighten their belt to accommodate for budget cuts and the tough economy, marketers are upping their spending to target the students who report to campus each day. Marketers spend billions of dollars on advertising and marketing strategies to a population that is self-professedly “broke.” With students’ money seemingly evaporating into the bookstores, OneStop accounts and other necessities, it might seem illogical that the older markets with more money to spend are not the apple of a marketer’s eye. While older people do have more money in the present, the power of being in the segment marketers refer to as the “age of acquisition” should not be underestimated. Although most college students would reject the idea they can be obtained like a possession, marketers know that acquiring the population of 18- to 34-year-olds

will allow them to the get the most mileage out of their efforts. Cincinnati Bell, Apple and Adidas all have a presence on campus, hoping to acquire Bearcats as lifelong customers, supplying several decades of potential revenue. The way they do this it by striving for brand loyalty, or a consumer’s desire to purchase items from one company opposed to competing ones. It is no doubt that Pepsi also strives to do that here at UC’s campus. In UC’s food service contract with ARAMARK, Pepsi is the sole beverage provider. Ever wonder why there are no Coca-Cola products found on campus other than in convenience stores? Pepsi wants UC students to spend four years of their life exposed predominantly to Pepsi products. “I like Pepsi so much more than Coke, but once in a blue moon I get into a phase where I just really have to have a Coke,” said Lindsey Usserman, a first-year middle childhood education student.

you’re going to give us that, we’ll just take it all the way down the field all night.” But the Commandos offense wasn’t the only Cincinnati unit making plays. While Mauk, Goodman and Redd were taking a break, Cincinnati’s defensive playmakers had a chance to shine. Defensive end James Spikes, the league sack leader, added two more against Chicago to bring his season total to 11. James made another two tackles for loss and tallied one quarterback hurry and one pass breakup. “I can’t say enough about Spikes,” Back said. “He’s one of the guys on our team that deserves a look at the next level.” The leading tackler in the CIFL is Cincinnati linebacker Clayton Mullins, who added to his numbers Saturday with 7.5 tackles, one sack, one quarterback hurry and one pass breakup. A fresh face with a familiar surname helped spark the Commandos defense.

E.J. Underwood, the brother of former Cincinnati Bearcat defensive back Brandon Underwood, appeared in his first game at the same position with the Commandos and made his presence felt immediately. With 19 seconds remaining in the second quarter, Underwood picked off Chicago quarterback Will Ducey and went 34 yards the other way for a touchdown. “Having him on board solidifies the secondary,” Back said. “They tried to go at him twice on deep balls and he picked them both off and took one to the house. With our defensive line pressure, adding a corner like E.J. Underwood is relaxing as a coach because you know they’ll have to test one of them.” The Commandos will return to the field at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, May 8, when they’ll travel north to face the rival Marion Mayhem (3-2) at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Marion, Ohio.

The Bearcats will head out of Big East play for a two-game series against Wright State, beginning at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 4, at Marge Schott Stadium.

The third Bearcat performer to receive all-conference honors in an individual event was javelin winner Brian Zimmerman. Cincinnati ran a program-record time of 3:09.60 in the 4x400 relay with contributions from Drakeford, Ethan Freet, Maurice Norman and Chase VanCura. The Bearcats placed third in event and beat their previous record by .17 seconds. Drakeford, running his final competitive meet in front of a home crowd, had a solid outing in the 200-meters, finishing sixth and helping the 4x100 relay team place fourth in the league. Schnier said his team will miss Drakeford on the field and the camaraderie he adds to the program. “He is not only an All-American, he has been the heart and soul of our team,” Schnier said. “He energizes everyone. It is fun to have him on the team. It is a joy to be his coach. I think we’re going to miss the energy that he has, the positivism,

the support he has for [his teammates].” Although the Bearcats finished two places lower in the conference than last season, Schnier said he is most proud of his squad’s resiliency and their approach to dealing with adversity throughout the season. “We lost our scholarships to the men’s side and we went from second to first in the All-Ohio — that’s the kind of group we have — they’re not just going to sit down and die,” Schnier said. Another senior, Lisa Klotz, rose to the occasion in the hammer throw and threw a personal-record toss of 168 feet, 4 inches to move into fourth on the school’s all-time list. The UC women continued their consistency in the pole vault, as seniors Kayla Dunn and Michelle Eby placed fourth and sixth, respectively. The teams have two more tune-up meets before the NCAA Regionals, with the first beginning Saturday, May 8, in Bloomington, Ind., at the Billy Haynes Invitational.

It has also received attention from Undergraduate Student Government, which unanimously passed a resolution bill endorsing Luccioni’s civility initiative at its meeting Wednesday, April 28. Lane Hart, internal holdover senator, introduced the bill. “Student Senate is very supportive of initiatives that promote the values of our Just Community Commitment,” Hart said. As a former student of Luccioni’s, Hart said Luccioni constantly strives to better the university by educating students about the principles of civility and practicing it herself. “It’s all about mutual respect for everyone in our UC community [and] acknowledging that adding many perspectives enhances our experience, and including

many people in the process brings us together,” Hart said. The initiative is not solely limited to UC’s campus. It has been pitched in cities across the country, with Los Angeles in 2009 being the first city in the United States to issue a proclamation recognizing the month, Luccioni said. The ultimate goal of International Civility Month is to create a world in which people in all countries and from all walks of life embrace and practice graciousness, generosity, kindness, consideration, thoughtfulness, nurturing, respect, restraint and responsibility. “We want to acknowledge, respect and rejoice in that,” Luccioni said.

graduate into a world where Coke and Pepsi tread in more authentic competition, they will habitually choose Pepsi for both their accustomed taste and the nostalgia from memories of college life. Beyond getting college students to buy habitually, companies hope other markets will follow their preferences. Youth is cool and sexy, so college students act as opinion leaders in the marketplace. Take Pink by Victoria’s Secret Collegiate Collection for example. Not only do the screen-printed dubs have a presence on racks at the UC bookstores, but they also made quite a splash when they rolled onto McMicken Commons in a Pink airstream trailer for their college roadshow last fall. Their tactics worked because the Pink collection is a favorite among UC females. Seeing many of the students sporting Pink will motivate the youth-inspired faculty and staff to run out and buy a pair colorful Pink track pants.

As college students lead the way in terms of market trends, marketers will need to have a keen eye to perceive what college students value — allowing students more power to have services and products created that fit their needs. More now than ever, the youth market continues to demonstrate strong commitment toward the brands they feel are contributing positively to world issues and the environment. In 2008, a growing 41 percent of respondents prefer socially responsible brands — compared with the 37 percent that said so last year. Also, the 41 percent figure is 24 percent higher than in 2006, according to Alloy Media and Marketing. With this momentum, consumers can expect socially responsible products and services to become mainstream and for the values of the youth market to drive the upcoming consumer trends.

I will say, though, that the climax was a bit more lively than the original, even though both versions share a final shot for shock value (and to set up sequels, naturally). Another piece of good news is that none of the victims come across as preordained “dead meat,” the way they do in other slasher films. In the end, the 1984 original is the better film, and it’s understandable why it remains Wes Craven’s most famous

work (although my favorite Craven film is 1977’s “The Hills Have Eyes”). This new “Nightmare” certainly attempts to recreate the fine boundaries between fantasy and reality the original did. The fact that nothing distinguishable is produced makes the film entertaining, but not masterful. For that, I rank this below Craven’s original, but above the remakes of “Halloween” and “Friday the 13th.”

Aronoff be clownin’ Kelly McGrady the news record

My Nose Turns Red 2010 Youth Circus’ Spring Extravaganza began with lights, cameras and fire. This wasn’t a normal circus event. Children and teens filled the stage with daring and comical acts Saturday, May 1, at the Aronoff Center for the Arts. The acts ranged from youth clowns to children jumping rope on a large globe. With approximately 49 talented children performing, there was never a dull moment. Even non-family audience members held their breaths as the children performed balancing acts and juggled. Cast and audience were mainly composed of proud parents, family and friends. Many children were on stage with their siblings at the same time. A professor from the University of Cincinnati played the role of “Mr. Everything Else,” while his children were acting the parts of clowns, acrobats and also jugglers. The audience supported the children and built confidence with an applause and an “It’s OK, you can do it,” if the child messed up their trick. The children would, in return, try again and end their trick with their arms up above their heads and yell “Up!” with big smiles on their faces. “Up!” marked the end of their trick and brought some more comedy to the show. It was obvious the children had been training and preparing for the show for a long time. Some children were in almost every act because of their broad range of abilities.

B.o.B’s premiere: Birth of a new genre? Russell shouse the news record

Being a long standing hip-hop fan, I have grown more than weary of the cookie-cutter rappers that have stumbled their way into the rap game over the past few years — hell, over the past decade. I began to hear rumblings of what was described as a new brand of hip-hop — one where the rapper actually played not just one instrument, but many, including the trumpet, keyboards, guitar and samplers. Multi-talented. Often compared to Andre 3000 of Outkast, B.o.B has a style all his own. His debut album, “The Adventures of Bobby Ray,” could potentially be the front-runner for album of the year — it’s a gift to hip-hop, as well as pop. The album has three mix-tapes, the best one being “B.o.B vs. Bobby Ray,” which served as a precursor to his debut. I decided to download the mixes before his debut dropped. I have to admit that the man can do as advertised. He has one of the

most captivating flows I have heard since Reflection Eternal’s “Train of Thought” (2000). Now to the real matter at hand: “The Adventures of Bobby Ray.” I think it’s safe to say on this album Bobby Ray (B.o.B) has created a new genre — one that I would call emo hip-pop. His debut album is a hybrid and throughout he displays his versatility and prowess as he bounces between genres with ease. I think the most relevant proof of this feat is the featured artists. The soon-to-be hits “Past My Shades” and “Bet I” showcase rappers such as Lupe Fiasco and T.I. This allows B.o.B to stretch his chops for a verse or two. Hayley Williams, the lead singer of Paramore makes an appearance on the song “Airplanes.” “Airplanes pt. 2” features hip-hop legend Eminem; I have to say it is the most brilliant idea on the album. The track “The Kids” displays how other musicians in the industry respect B.o.B. Vampire Weekend released an album in 2008 with a track at the end titled “The Kids Don’t Stand a

LUDACRIS: Bringing UC in big

Chance.” B.o.B’s version is a hip-hop knockoff and is one of the album’s many highlights. On one of the album’s few tracks that are actually produced by B.o.B, “Lovelier Than You,” he does something that most rappers have been afraid to do lately: Sings. Thanks to Auto-tune, one of the music industry’s worst innovations, real singing has been scarce in hip-hop. B.o.B actually sings very well. He can do everything: He’s the real deal. For a debut album, I think B.o.B has done the impossible, as he might have a record of the year on his first outing. Not to say that I am not surprised by this development in the hip-hop industry, I can only hope this becomes, at least in some way, a developing trend. Other rappers should consider picking up an instrument themselves; it couldn’t hurt to see it more often. If you have the time or the money, I highly suggest running (not walking) to your nearest music shop and purchasing this album in hopes that this artist never has to sell out to make money.

The 2010 Spring Concert packed the Fifth Third Arena with a sellout crowd Mick Cronin could probably only dream of. When nearly 8,000 tickets sold by the second day of sales, it was obvious the Programs and Activities Council had scored big time when they booked Ludacris for the free annual event. Unlike last year, the spring concert was hosted at Fifth Third Arena instead of Sigma Sigma Commons and, instead of an open-admission policy, students were given two free tickets on a first-come first-served basis. This was surely an educated decision based on the extra security and safety requirements of a larger headlining act, but I feel that a lot of the fun from last year’s N.E.R.D. concert was missing, as many students sorely discovered their tickets landed them high in the upper deck, in seats usually reserved for only the most frugal of basketball fans. The opening act Down with Webster — despite appearing as a poor-man’s (or maybe just Canadian) Gym Class Heroes,

brought a lot of energy to the stage as people filled the arena. Their blend of hip-hop and pop-rock sound was a smart choice of opening acts at what was, most likely, the first rap show the majority of the people in the crowd had ever attended. Ludacris took to the stage backed only by his DJ and one co-MC, rapping out a mix of his past hits and material from his new album, “Battles of the Sexes.” Even though the rapper hasn’t quite been in the spotlight as much as he was when his debut album, “Back for the First Time” was released, the audience still remembered every word of songs like, “Southern Hospitality” and “Rollout” and a thick cloud of second-hand marijuana smoke drifted over my shoulder as the opening synth notes of Luda’s classic smoke-out song, “Blueberry Yum Yum” rang out over the loud speaker. Overall, the night seemed like a tremendous success. The seats were packed with thousands of UC students accompanied by whatever lucky friend or family member they gave their second ticket to, having a good time and enjoying another big-name entertainer live on campus for free.

Elm Street’s nightmare Freddy Kreuger is back, but why? Robert Kirchgassner the news record

It was inevitable, I suppose. After all, both “Halloween” and “Friday the 13th” have been remade in the last few years, so why shouldn’t the 1984 classic “A Nightmare on Elm Street” go on the remake path as well? Freddy Krueger is unique among his cinematic slasher brethren due to the special effects budgets he’s given in his films and the one-liners he spews out after making a kill. One could say he’s a cross between Jason Voorhes and Dirty Harry, with a razor-fingered glove, instead of Harry’s .44 Magnum. Throughout the original “Nightmare” series, actor Robert Englund always seemed to have the time of his life when it came to playing Freddy. He certainly had more of a personality than other movie psychopaths as he didn’t wear a mask, but bizarre (if grotesque) makeup. When all is said and done, though, the “Nightma re” remake is just OK. Jackie Earle Haley (Rorschach in “Watchmen”) plays Freddy

here, and he goes through this film the same way Benicio Del Toro went through “The Wolf Man” earlier this year: he tries but won’t be as fondly regarded as the original. In Haley’s case, it is attributed to his lack of dialogue. Despite a nice line or two (such as “How’s that for a wet dream?”), he isn’t as lively in the role as Englund was. Freddy’s makeup comes across as a second-rate version of Englund’s as well. The makeup is different, but not drastically so, whether it’s due to the different structures of Englund and Haley’s faces or Englund having done a better job of looking angry, but Haley’s Freddy just doesn’t have the endearing shock value of Englund’s. One change to how Freddy plays out in the new film that I’m not sure I like is that the audience learning that there are a specific set of kids he’s killing off. This makes the new film somewhat problematic, as Englund’s Freddy was scary because he simply wanted to kill anybody he +came across.

Noxema’s no use Freddy Kreuger (played by Jackie Earle Haley) was badly burned by an angry mob after the law failed to deal justice to the suspected child molester. This new film basically follows the original, recreating some of the original film’s most memorable moments. Thankfully, Freddy and his background story aren’t unnecessarily altered the way Michael Myers and his history were in Rob Zombie’s “Halloween” remakes. Also disappointing is the film’s depiction of Nancy, played by Rooney Mara. Her Nancy is a goth loner who’s not as lively as Heather Langenkamp’s Nancy in the original. The worst | 513.556.5913

part, though, is there are several moments in the film in which Nancy barely reacts to the death and terror occurring around her. In contrast, Langenkamp was an instantly engaging and sympathetic heroine. Her boyfriend in the original, named Glen and played by then-unknown Johnny Depp, is played by Kyle Gallner and renamed Quentin. Quentin has more of an involvement in see nightmare | page 4

WEININ’ sam weinberg

Funny horse names best part of sport The 136th running of the Kentucky Derby, the first of three races for horse racing’s Triple Crown, was won Saturday, May 1, by Super Saver. While I love to watch big races and go to River Downs or Turfway to bet in hopes of winning a little extra bar money for the weekend, my favorite part of horse racing are the horses’ names. Picking a thoroughbred horse name is nothing like naming a team in any other sport. Thoroughbred names are funny, witty and the best names you will ever hear in the world of sports. Yeah, every sport has its handful of players where you can’t help but laugh a little under your breath when their name is called, but do you think you would ever hear “Bodacious Ta Ta’s just scored” or “penalty on No Fat Chicks” in another sport? No, I don’t think so. I like to believe there aren’t any parents out there who hate their kids that much. But luckily for the enjoyment of others, there are people who don’t harbor any sentiment when it comes to naming their million-dollar horses. People derive names for their horses from everywhere, from common human names such as Harold and Tom to obscure names like Oonga Boonga. You have your pop culture references with names like Hello Newman, Redhotfillypepper and Sheikh’nnotstirred. Then you have your sex-related names such as Golden Shower, On Your Knees, Spank It and Hard Like a Rock. You have the ones that are a pain to say and are the bane of track announcers everywhere, like On On On On On On, Flat Fleet Feet and Quickandcutetoboot. And then you have ones that are just down right funny, like Date More Minors, Forty Dollar Bra, Stud Finder and Chicks Dig Me. While it might seem like a fun and easy thing to just come up with, naming your horse is actually one of the hardest things for an owner to do. Naming a horse is a science, and there are actually agencies that exist and get paid for the sole purpose of coming up with names for thoroughbred racehorses. You also can’t just slap on any name for the horse. You have to get it registered and approved — not an easy task. After an owner comes up with a name they must submit it to The Jockey Club and get it approved by a council of wise old men for it to become official. The Jockey Club gets a reported 60,000 name requests per year for thoroughbreds, and unfortunately they have gotten stricter in recent years on names, turning down an estimated one-third of the requests they get. To pass The Jockey Club’s test these days you have to comply with a long list of rules. In a summed up version, a horse’s name can’t be initials, can’t have more than 18 characters and it can’t be a name that was used in the last 10 years — a pretty big restriction in its own, as there are around 445,000 names that have been used in the last 10 years. The name can’t be the name of a famous or notorious person, can’t include copyrighted material and can’t include anything with commercial value. The name also cannot include anything that people would find obscene or offensive. Lucky for the amusement of the general public, with 60,000 name requests per year, some funny ones are bound to slip by. Even with the stricter restrictions in recent years, names like X Rated Dreams and Nutzapper managed to get approved. Even though the days of names like Hardawn and Wrecked Em are gone, owners with a sense of humor are still coming up with ways to sneak stuff by The Jockey Club in order to give fans in the grand stands a good laugh. While coming up with a clever name is no easy task, luckily for the sport of thoroughbred racing, owners are still taking the time to keep a tradition going that gives the sport a uniqueness that cannot be found anywhere else.

Commandos cruise by Cardinals Sam Elliott the news record

Ben Mauk threw a career-high 238 yards while Cincinnati’s best wide receivers and defensive players excelled and the Cincinnati Commandos continued their dominance in a 62-22 victory against the Chicago Cardinals Saturday, May 1. The Commandos (6-0) took their show on the road for the second time this season, this time to Odeum Sports and Expo Center in Villa Park, Ill. The win clinched the Commandos a spot in the playoffs with four games remaining on their regular season schedule. Mauk won Continential Indoor Football League Offensive Player of the Week honors one week ago after throwing for 148 yards and seven touchdowns against Miami Valley. After his game against the Cardinals, Mauk could be in line for the award again. Mauk completed 24 of 30 pass attempts and tossed another seven touchdowns against Chicago, bringing his season total to a league-high 34.

Cincinnati ran the ball just 11 times and gained only 19 yards on the ground, but was able to beat the Cardinals with a deadly passing attack. Five Commandos grabbed touchdown receptions; Dominick “Goody” Goodman scored two and caught a game-high eight passes while the dangerously quick Robert Redd scored two touchdowns and gained a game-high 77 receiving yards. “[Chicago] put five people in the box,” Back said. In the CIFL’s eight-on-eight style of play, that left favorable match-ups for Cincinnati downfield. “They were playing Robert Redd and Dominick Goodman with a backside corner who was about [5 feet, 8 inches tall] and was off the ball about 10 yards,” Back said. “If see Commandos | page 4

The UC men’s track and field team finished sixth at the event and Antione Drakeford won the 400-meter race, Sunday, May 2, the final day of competition. The victory makes the senior a two-time Big East champion. The lady Bearcats placed 12th in the conference. The favored Notre Dame men’s team took home the trophy while the Louisville women won a third-consecutive Big East title. Sophomore Eric Finan turned in another high individual mark with a personal and school-record time in the 5,000-meters with a 14:01.16 run and second-place finish. “He’s been outstanding,” head coach Bill Schnier said. “The only race he’s lost the whole year was the 5,000-meter run at the Sea Ray Relays and he lost to an Olympian. He has had a fabulous year and he is one of the top-ranked people in the Big East.”

First series win The University of Cincinnati baseball team got the monkey of winning a Big East series off its back after sweeping West Virginia at Marge Schott Stadium. | 513.556.5913

After winning the first two games of their three-game home series against West Virginia Friday, the University of Cincinnati baseball team secured its sweep of the Mountaineers Saturday, May 1, at Marge Schott Stadium. The Bearcats won game one of Friday’s double-header 9-3 thanks to two RBIs by Jimmy Jacquot and Chris Peters and individual RBIs from T.J. Jones, Mikel Huston and Justin Riddell. The Bearcats won game two 5-2 after more RBIs from Jones, Peters, Kevin Johnson and Jamel Scott. Though the atmosphere was overcast and dismal from a meteorological perspective, the competitive atmosphere of game three was quite the opposite. The Bearcats started the scoring with two runs in the first inning, when Jacquot sent a full-count fastball over the right-field fence — his ninth home run this season. The Mountaineers responded in the second inning with a solo home run from junior Jeremy Gum. A three-run home run by West Virginia’s Grant Buckner gave the Mountaineers a 4-2 lead. Starting pitcher Brian Sand struggled early for Cincinnati, so head coach Brian Cleary turned to true freshman Andrew Strenge in relief. Strenge entered the game see Sweep | page 4
