Performance sing off for NIC crowd Connor Coughlin Staff Writer

It’s not often that Coeur d’Alene has international award-winning musical groups that have been featured on network television shows. It’s even rarer when that group happens to be a nine-member all-male a cappella group. On Saturday November 16, the group Vocal Point performed at the Schuler Performing Arts Center to an enthusiastic and completely sold out audience. Members in the crowd roared with enthusiasm as nine identically dressed singers took to the stage and performed an eclectic choice of popular songs, mixing complex harmonies with beatboxing all set to energetic choreography. The group took the audience of a vocal odyssey through pop music. They performed their own unique renditions of songs from the Four Seasons and Elvis Presley to modern hits from artists such as Adele and Phillip Phillips, as well as including some of their own original material. Vocal Point hails originally from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, getting its start in 1991 after a number of students banded together in order to sing a contemporary form of a-cappella. Since then the group has toured extensively and released a number of albums. All of the singers are members of Church of the Latter Day Saints and have performed an extensive length of missionary work for their church. The dedication to their faith was present throughout the entirety of performance, opening with a prayer and, on occasion, playing an inspirational-style hymn. The group has won a number of awards for its work including first prize in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella in 2006. Most notably, Vocal Point was featured on the third season of NBC’s “The Sing Off” in 2011 where they would eventually come in fifth place.

The North Idaho College men’s basketball team played two overtime games in less than 24 hours this weekend at Christianson Gymnasium. The Cardinals won the first against Central Wyoming College Friday 82-75, but lost the second to Arizona Western College Saturday night 92-89. Against Arizona Western, NIC’s Brad Wallace hit a 3-pointer, pushing the score to 90-89 in favor of Arizona Western, but the Matadors’ free-throw shooting kept the Cardinals at bay. NIC head coach Jared Phay said turnovers and missed free throws hurt them. Freshman forward Braxton Tucker lead the charge for the Cardinals with 24 points and eight rebounds. Sophomore guard Bryce Leavitt added 11 points, all of them coming from the free-throw line, and eight rebounds too. “The things I can do individually is just keep working on my 3-point shooting and finish a little bit better around the rim,” Leavitt said. “Our team is See BASKETBALL | Page 9

Christina Villagomez Webmaster The man who broke into a campus Higher One ATM last September pled guilty in Boise to a crime spree spanning several states. Edward Clarence Lancaster, 57, a Las Vegas native, admitted to 21 dif ferent cases of ATM theft adding up to an approximate total of $124,000 in stolen U.S. currency, almost 89,000 in ATM damages and additional proper ty damage of $3,612. Lancaster, with the aid of his wife Zakiah Lancaster, 25, targeted primarily educational institutions in several western states before being apprehended in Arizona. Lancaster was taken into custody in Januar y for burglar y after a professor at Eastern Arizona College witnessed him attempting to break into a campus ATM. Zakiah Lancaster was arrested in the pair’s getaway vehicle. The vehicle was repor tedly filled with burglar y tools, $2,000 in $20 bills and the couple’s two young daughters, who were immediately taken into protective custody.

BUSTED During an FBI interrogation Lancaster confessed to a number of ATM thefts, including several that took place at Idaho universities across the state. The FBI was later able to connect him to other thefts by geographically tracking his banking transactions and matching the dates and locations to different ATM theft repor ts. As par t of the plea agreement, Lancaster will pay restitution of almost 217,000 and for feit the cash proceeds of his crimes. Victims may submit fur ther impact statements for consideration at Lancaster’s sentencing hearing. According to campus security, NIC incurred no loss of funds or proper ty damage, and Depar tment of Justice restitution forms have been supplied to Higher One to recoup the sustained losses. The maximum penalty for bank larceny is 10 years in prison, a 250,000 fine and several years of supervised release. Lancaster is scheduled to be sentenced by a federal judge in Boise on Januar y 28, 2012.

Aerospace Center of Excellence Doors Fly Open Politicians, businessmen, community members attend the opening of the new aerospace building Thomas Hansen News Editor

T

he Aerospace Center of Excellence had its ribbon cut and doors open Nov. 8 at a ceremony attended by a packed audience of suppor ters. This event commemorated the opening of the str ucture

that will house NIC’s aerospace program, which has been in the works for nearly two years through a grant offered to the college. The building will be used for various classes related to the program, from composites manufacturing to non-destr uctive testing, and will see use before the end of the semester

by the 40 students cur rently enrolled. Gover nor Butch Otter spoke at the ceremony, alongside Lt. Gover nor Brad Little, and described the event as “Epic.” “Usually this happens in the reverse. You put the intellectual foundation in place, or the professional develop-

ment capabilities, through a college platform, and then the industr y moves in,” Gover nor Otter said. “Which tells me that the industr y, the 25 aerospace industries within Nor ther n Idaho, had the faith. They knew that they could build their intellectual base, their professional base, maybe not any place in the world but

they knew they could do it in Nor ther n Idaho. The majority of the NIC board of tr ustees also attended, as well as the previous college president Priscilla Bell, who was responsible for the initial stages of the program. “I told her [Kassie Silvas] the first responsibility is to find a place to put the program, so she found this facility. It was a coal bar n, no insulation, it was just a wide-open space,” NIC President Dunlap said. Dunlap said the program was built from scratch by its director, Kassie Silvas, over the last nine months. The building is located next to the Pappy Boyington Field airpor t in Hayden, and had to be rezoned for educational purposes. It is already fur nished with equipment and seeing use. This semester saw full capacity with the first students entering the composites material program. The program has yet to reach 100 percent completion, and is likely to see the approval of its remaining programs by 2016. When complete, the program will accept students for machining and manufacturing, quality assurance and nondestr uctive testing, and composites material fabrication and repair which is cur rently operating. NIC’s aerospace program was funded through a grant from the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training program, which draws from a pool of $2 billion through the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act signed by President Obama in 2012.

Cardinal Connections’ Stories of the Gathering Place “The Story Continues”, NIC History with Fran Bahr and “Fur Trade in our Region”, with Mark Weddick Azra Avdagic Staff Writer Fran Bahr, NIC instructor and author of the book “The Gathering Place: A History of North Idaho College” spoke about the history of NIC and how the book came together, told stories of NIC’s past, and cited future plans for a ten year update on the book. “The Gathering Place: A History of North Idaho College” chronicles the history of the college from its very beginning. “This book is an attempt to picture the evolution of NIC from its extraordinary beginning to its present position as a vital element in the North Idaho community,” said Bahr. Bahr taught English for 29 years at NIC and has since returned to teaching Survey of Art online part time. Her speech included lots of interesting facts about the history of the college. Did you know that NIC used to compete with other local schools such as U of I to see which school could catapult a beer keg the farthest down a field? And even better: NIC was the grand champion of this competition for a number of years. Students of the college also used to race beds down Sherman back in the day, Bahr told the audience. And one time, in 1933, NIC’s basketball team played Gonzaga University and won with a ver y close score of 28-26.

DID YOU KNOW?

“The Gathering Place: A History of North Idaho College” includes many more stories like these, Bahr remarked. The book was a 9 year project, lead by former NIC college trustee Sheila Wood and former trustee Rolly Williams with a committee of 6: retired librarian Mary Sorenson, retired business instructor division chair and board trustee Betty McClain, retired English instructor George Ives, librarian Denise Clark, executive assistant to the president Donna Ward, and public relations director Erna Rhinehart. Robert Singletary, music and history instructor and local history expert, committed many hours of research and drafting and alumni coordinator, Sara Fladeland collected and prepared photographs for the book. “Many hands make good history; this adage is especially true when writing an institutional history.” Bahr said. The event was part of the annual NIC Cardinal Connections Symposium, which promotes shared learning about issues relevant to today’s world by connecting the campus and community. The topic of this year’s events was “Stories of the Gathering Place.” The name “The Gathering Place” came from the untold centuries that the people of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe gathered to hunt, fish, play games, dance, feast, and swim in the area.

April Wood Staff Writer Cardinal Connections goes into full swing with its theme of the history of the northwest. This year Cardinal Connections brings “Stories of the Gathering Place”, three presentations including “Fur Trade in our Region” on Oct. 23. On display during the presentation was the fur of a beaver treated and stretched over a hoop. The fur was highly sought over by fur traders. Beaver pelt was used to make hats with a high demand, and the hats became a form of currency. The Northwest became the business battleground between two companies, Pacific Fur Company and Northwest Company. Most of these traders were illiterate and very few records were kept, so people only know what little was written and what physical evidence has survived. There is only one known record of fur trade occurring in the Coeur d’Alene area and this was when a canoe flipped over and spilled its cargo of furs. The fur trade was a family affair, with the women and children staying at camp to prepare the beaver pelts while the men waded in cold water to bait traps. Despite being a rough enterprise, there was organization. Everything was worth in relation to beaver fur including the pelts of other animals. The beaver was not wasted either; its meat was used for stew. French fur traders would eventually come across various Native American tribes in their quest to trap and ship these pelts. With their bald heads and long beards, the foreign people were known as ‘upside-down face’ in the native tongue. Such frenzy over rich American resources mirrors that of the gold rush. .

Prior to being established as an anual holiday, Thanksgiving was proclaimed by presidents at their discretion.

Major Transferrence

Monday, november 18, 2013

CAMPUS SECURITY LOG 1

Reforms to increase transferability for general education Azra Avdagic Staff Writer Big changes are in the works for general education majors transferring to 4-year colleges in Idaho. NIC faculty members are proposing changes to the general education degree to the Idaho board of education to allow for better credit transfer to 4-year institutions in the state. These changes will parallel the reform of general education for Idaho colleges. “General Education Reform plans to create consistent transfer among all of the state’s community colleges, colleges, and universities in Idaho,” Lloyd Duman, the division chair of the English department, said. Lloyd has played a major role in the planning process by leading presentations and discussing the potential changes with other faculty. After the changes are implemented any student upon completion of a general education degree at NIC should be able to directly

transfer to any school within the state and have his or her core requirements complete. Burns said that NIC wants there to be a direct transfer of credits from the college to other institutions, and that the changes should take place within the next two years. “At the very earliest, a student can expect to see some of these changes during the 2014-15 academic year, but more so likely the 2015-16 academic year,” Vice President for Instruction Lita Burns said. Several statewide meetings have been held by the Idaho state board of education to review and make recommendations to all Idaho schools about their respective general education program requirements. NIC had representatives at these meetings. The board of education wants to change the current general education requirements for Idaho schools to combat statewide concern about the lack of degree completion, along with other national initiatives.

“You are seeing some of the consequences now. Both the English and math departments, working with [student] advising, have created new models for remedial instruction on campus,” Duman said. The specific changes have not been formally accounted for yet, but are in the works. “I am recommending North Idaho College hold course proposals for general education courses until the recommendations are approved by the Idaho board of education,” Burns said. It is anticipated that the formal recommendations for change to the general education requirements will go before the board of education for approval next spring. The changes are expected to primarily affect students only majoring in general education, and should not affect the time it takes for them to graduate. “I don’t believe that the Gen. Ed. reform will affect a student’s timely graduation,” Duman said. “In fact, it should result in a clearer path to graduation.”

EDITORIAL

Black Friday starting early The Friday after Thanksgiving has always been known for its crazy sales and shopping mahem. But what happens if stores decide to open earlier than usual? A whole day earlier? On a holiday that is meant for being gratefull for what we have been blessed with in our lives? Multiple stores have decided to open on Thanksgiving while many others are making it a point to not be open. When it all comes down to it, way too much time is being devoted to the materialistic side of life. It’s simply not okay for more and more businesses to starter operating on major holidays. People should be spending time with family, not racing to get a sale or working to ser ve shoppers. Along with morals, tradition is being lost more and more ever y year. Ever yone needs to get a reality check of what’s really important. The economy may be struggling but it’s not going to absolutely kill ever ybody to set aside spending money or earning it for one day. So many companies that stress the importance of family ever yday will be open on the 28. They don’t care about you, traditions, or your family; all they care about is what is in your pocket and what deal or promotion will get you to use it. So this holiday, avoid indudging in all the advertisements you see. You’re not going to remember what shoes you practically stole five years from now. What you will remember, however, is the time you spent with family, the laughs shared over dinner, and how rare it becomes over time to get together like you once did. Save the shopping for Friday and appreciate the things in life that won’t cost your checkbook this Thanksgiving.

ALEX RODAL-CUBILLAS Staff Writer The world is not new to prejudices or ethnic misconceptions. It is full of diverse people and cultures, but none is better the other. Throughout our history, one ethnic group has always felt superior to the other; whether it is due to skin color, financial stance or the language they speak. One lesson I have always been taught from my parents and influential people around me is that a person has worth regardless of their ethnic background, financial status, gender, sexual preference or appearance. I am a firm believer that we are all created equal. Being a proud Mexican from a long line of other proud Mexicans I was taught to always stand up for myself, and that nothing or no one can tell me what I am or what I am not, what I can or can’t do. Living in North Idaho, however, I have experienced my share of racist remarks and mistreatments from people who think themselves higher than me purely on an ethnic basis. My family and I have had to endure various racist and prejudice remarks from multitudes of people just because we don’t look like them or simply because we choose to speak Spanish in public areas. We have heard terms such as: “Go back to Mexico,” “this is America! Speak ENGLISH!” “My parents don’t think we should be friends because you’re Mexican,” and my personal favorite “Your people are ruining this country!”

Having to listen to racist and ignorant people speak such atrocities towards you affects the way you see yourself and your culture. It sometimes happened all too often when I was growing up that I was at times ashamed to speak my beautiful native language. I felt like people were staring and waiting to pounce on me and criticize. Luckily for me I had a strong family that always told me I was worth just as much as anyone else, that I should not heed the words of ignorance. Now as an adult in the 21st century, I sometimes like to play make believe and pretend that the world has progressed into an era of peace and that all God’s creatures are accepting of one another. That no person has ever been put down by another and racism and prejudice is now a thing of myth. However, I know better than to believe in fairytales. We don’t live in a world of peace and equality; people all over our planet are being discriminated against. A person who was recently introduced to me through an article in the Huffington Post is Lindel Toups, chair of the Lafourche Parish City Council in Louisiana, who believes that teaching Mexicans English is a bad thing and is a supporter of a ballot that would take funding away from libraries. “They’re teaching Mexicans how to speak English,” Toups told the local TriParish times, referencing to the Spanishlanguage section of one of the nine branch libraries. “Let that son of a bitch go back to Mexico. There’s just so many things that they’re doing that I don’t agree with…

them junkies and hippies and foodstamps recipients and all, they use the library to look at drugs and food stamps on the Internet. I see them do it.” Mr. Toups strongly opposes and discourages Mexicans learning that due to this believe alone, he wants to divert $800,000 away from public libraries budgets and into a new jail which will cost $25 million. Well Mr. Toups, I am sorry to disappoint you but as a Mexican, I have never used the library as a source for internet to apply for food stamps, nor have I used it to look up drugs. As a student and knowledge-seeker I have used the internet for research, books, and a quiet place to study or as a sanctuary to finish homework assignments in-between work shifts. I oppose the words of ignorance and heed the voice of reason, ignorance is not bliss. If we wish to better the world we live in, if we wish to make a change in the future of our communities of our world, I encourage people to get to know a person of a different ethnic background, learn from them and see it for yourself. The world is full of stereotypes and misconceptions of diversity and it’s easy to fall victim to false words due to fear instilled within us. Get to know the world around us and remember that we are all the same race and that ethnicity is a barrier we create to separate ourselves from the rest of the world. I also encourage people to know who they elect into city council, or into positions of power because if it were up to people like Lindel Toups, the world would be painted black and white, and the beautiful colors we know would not exist.

Seth McFarlene losing his comedy streak APRIL WOOD Staff Writer So Fox’s new comedy “Dads” is out and the reviews are in. It blows more than the fan aisle at Home Depot. What a shocker. It has both critics and audiences disgruntled. Even the Youtube video of the trailer has a 60 percent dislike rating. And this is on Youtube, the most pants-on-head section of the internet. Sometimes, I think MacFarlane hates his fans. From his spin-off of the least memorable “Family Guy” character to the kick in the shins that was Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of cartoon comedy, MacFarlane seems to be testing how much crap he can spoon feed the viewers until they reject it. Now the characters are unlikable shadows of their former selves. Many episodes now feature long stretches of pointlessly awkward silence or incredibly lazy filler.

One episode had 4 minutes of its 22 minute runtime being just a music video. Even if MacFarlane didn’t write it, he still green-lighted it. “American Dad” initially had a cold reception, but its cast of characters and more focus on narrative than cheap cutaways gained it fans. Unsurprisingly, MacFarlane has very little to do with the show. When “The Cleveland Show” was brought about, people became a bit sick of MacFarlane’s near monopoly over the adult cartoon comedy shows. It used the same tired MacFarlane format: fat, stupid dad, hot mom, loser children, talking baby. MacFarlane, as some would say, jumped the shark. With the smash hit movie “Ted”, people remembered why they loved MacFarlane. Criticisms aside, I do think he has some good talents he should utilize more than acting like a 14 year-old girl during their “I’m so random, spork, waffle,” phase. He has an amazing voice and is a pianist. He has shown his love for musicals and

has written some good pieces in his works. I know he is way more capable than what he is currently putting out for the masses. MacFarlane can continue to milk the “Family Guy” cow until its teats fall off and throw all his integrity out the window or mercifully put the show down. Where else can the show feasibly go now that the whole cast are complete monsters and the same tired ‘Mr. Herbert is a pedophile’ jokes? Thank goodness for the fresh drink of water that is “Bob’s Burgers.” It made me remember that a comedy doesn’t have to pretend to be edgy, but only edgy as defined by a frat boy on Xbox Live. It is the same formula: lower class family and their wacky children. The characters are unique, memorable and have chemistry with one another. The show loves a good ol’ fashioned poop joke and revels in its own energy. “Family Guy” bashed Bob in one of its episodes, but the joke may be on them as Bob gets another renewed season and “Dads” is already being cancelled.

PERSPECTIVES

Legal charges for ‘sexting’ minors MELAINA BELL Staff Writer As the use of technology continues to grow, the law has had a hard time keeping up. One of the biggest challenges of the digital age is just how hard it is to find solutions to problems that never before existed. While states generally act in the interest of protecting the people, you needn’t look much further than the directions they choose to see that the road to hell, truly is, paved with good intentions. With that in mind, let us turn our attention to a new law in Arkansas which will allow minors to be criminally prosecuted for “sexting,” sending naked photos or sexually explicit text mes-

sages. I understand why this could look like a reasonable solution, perhaps being made illegal would keep kids from doing it. That, in turn, would save kids from being bullied, harassed, or blackmailed by these images and texts later on. Keeping children safe is an entirely valid concern. However, the cost of this “protec-

tion” is a criminal record, and I fail to see the value in that. If I’m to be entirely honest, I don’t believe sexting is a state concern, anyway. It’s something the parents should be dealing with. While one could argue that the parents may not know, I could easily counter argue

that without the parent’s knowing the state wouldn’t know either. You see, in order for this law to be enforced it’s the parents who will be turning in their own children. Would it not be a better option to educate and punish your own children? Have we become so helpless that we have to have the state come in and tell our children what not to do? What good parent would give their child a criminal record over a life lesson? If the state would like to cut down on sexting, perhaps a good start would be an increase in education and resources for both minors and parents. Knowledge is usually the answer, and if we use technology to teach, I think we’ll see more positive results.

‘Ten things that make me livid’ NICOLE TOOLEY Staff Writer

i. Last week, I couldn’t get out of my car for 20 minutes although I was right across the street from my house, because there were 2 guys standing outside. And when I told my best friend about this, he asked what I was wearing. I’m assuming if I had been wearing tight pants, and a low cut shirt rather than my work clothes- it would have made it okay for me to get sexually harassed or even attacked just trying to get inside my house. ii. Sites like, “broslikethissite” exist. I clicked through the pages for a minute thinking it was a joke, finally realizing whoever made this site was completely serious. And so was everyone that followed it. So called “Bros” have the right to scrutinize, and say anything and everything they want to about a women’s body. And I stumbled upon this site left open on a school computer’s browser. iii. People think women are equal because we have the right to vote. But still only 6.4% of the House of Representatives

are women. In the words of Adam Falkner, “If you’ve never had to think about having something, that’s privilege.” iv. People say “feminism” like it’s a dirty word. And they think feminism means the same thing as misandrist. Feminism is about evening out the playing field, for everyone. So as a woman, I don’t feel as if I have to look like the cover model on Vogue or so men don’t feel like they can’t show emotions because it’s not “manly.” So anybody can walk into the grocery store and buy any form of birth control they want without people giving them “the look”. So people can live their lives they want, without being considered “risqué”, or “easy”. v. Women didn’t get amended into the Executive Order 1126 for nearly 2 years. An order literally about discrimination and how employers can’t and shouldn’t discriminate against possible employees and STILL women weren’t part of that idea of nondiscrimination until the THIRD amendment of that order. vi. In the Steubenville rape case, news reports talked about how the 2 teenagers that had raped a drunken girl at a party had “so much going for them”, as

if it was the victims fault for ruining that. And although there was video evidence of the crime, the boys’ attorney said the girl wasn’t a good witness because she was impaired by alcohol. She was also a good victim because she was impaired by alcohol. vii. It’s 2013, and majority rules that same sex marriage will be harmful to society and the American picture of family. How on earth, does somebody’s choice on who to love affect you? viii. Eating disorders have the highest rate of mortality of any other mental illness, but health insurance won’t cover treatment. The death rate from Anorexia is 12 times higher than the rate of any other cause in females from 15-24 years old. ix. Most models have body mass indexes between 16 and 17, but they still fill all magazines, advertisements, commercials, and TV shows portraying themselves as what you need to look like in order to be “beautiful”. 40 percent of models have an eating disorder like bulimia nervosa, or anorexia nervosa. This percentage doesn’t even include models with EDNOS. x. I’m not the only person angry about things like these. But still, nothing has changed.

JOHN BOLTZ Staff Writer If you listen to only the radio, you might be under the impression that hip-hop is dead with the endless loop of the top 40 songs that the record industry thinks will sell. The radio plays what they’re told to play: a catchy beat with a repetitive chorus and ridiculously simple lyrics that convey no substance or meaning. Theses songs may be fun and catchy but when they are all that is being played, people wonder, “Is hiphop dead?” The truth is that hip-hop is very much alive so rather it is radio that is dead. Ninety percent of the ‘music’ that you hear on the radio is garbage that sounds like a hodgepodge of auto-tune, simple lyrics and pointless messages. It sounds artificial and unimaginative. The only noticeable talent is the producer. If you want to hear real hip-hop anymore, you have to go underground. By underground, I mean the internet, local shows or subversive mix tapes. All you have to do is a little digging and you can find some amazing new music you never knew was there. It’s sad, but a lot of real, talented artists find their music lost in obscurity. The hip-hop scene is way oversaturated, but a few rappers are redeeming the rap game and taking it back from the counterfeit cookie-cutter rappers. Newcomers Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky have made a splash with

their talent, along with a multitude of other up and coming rappers such as Childish Gambino, Atomsphere, Big K.I.R.T., Nine Side, Nipsey Hussle, Dizzee Rascal, Cassey Veggies, HAVIK, and Tyler the Creator just to name just a few. Some of theses rappers have been doing it for years but remain on the top of the underground. Locally, we have talented rappers with their own unique sound. Cordell Drake from the Nine Side Movement has been called ‘the voice of the Northwest’ because he brings a mixture of melodic harmony with lyrical flow.

Good hip-hop, to me, is music that is thought provoking and music that will hit you with the truth of reality. Music that is entertaining with out sacrificing heart.

opens us up to the truth. Hip-hop is the language of a generation struggling to be. It is a relentless art form that can influence and motivate. It is a direct refection of the rappers thoughts. Sometimes, it is violent or painful or it can be full of rage, lust, love, lust, fear, hurt or ignorance. Hip-hop can give the bitter truth or show resentment to society. Rap is the life of the artist in the form of music, and it will never die.

COMMENTARY

The season of giving AISA holds clothing drive to help lessfortunate

Morgen Buck Staff Writer

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, but before we eat ourselves into food comas with our families, why not give the less fortunate something to be thankful for? November is homeless awareness month. A month to help those in need, and more importantly a chance to open the eyes of many on their views of the homeless. Homeless people are just lazy and brought their situation on themselves, right? Not always. While that may be the case for some, a lot of people simply have been struck with bills they cannot pay or medical issues they cannot resolve and have no where else to go. This month is the month to get involved. Be creative- volunteer, donate money or clothes, anything you can think of. But, being realistic, this is college. We are broke and barely even have time to help ourselves let alone others. Luckily, the American Indian Student Alliance of NIC is holding A Drive to Make a Difference 2013. A Drive to Make a Difference is a clothing drive designed to help those in need before the holidays. Now through November 21 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M. You can drop off items in the SUB. Acceptable items to bring to the drive are men and womens gently used clothing, socks, shoes, jackets, hats, gloves, scarves, tarps, blankets, and travel size toiletries. Let’s get out there and give a helping hand this month, because everyone deserves something to be thankful for. Morgen Buck is an editor for The Sentinel.

The play recalled what life was like for Anne Frank and her family during hard times in WWII era Europe. Jantzen Hunsaker/Sentinel

Bringing the diary to life Local cast recreates tragic story of Anne Frank, family Jantzen Hunsaker Staff Writer Schuler Auditorium is one of the greatest artistic and expressive venues we have access to in Coeur d’Alene. It once again hosted an amazing production from a local cast. This time it was the Diary of Anne Frank. The thing that really set the tone was the pre-show q & a with WWII survivor, Carla Peperzak who now resides in Spokane, Washington. This was an especially nice opening because Peperzak actually lived close to Anne Frank and had even been to her house during the war. Born in Amsterdam, Peperzak came from a split house so her father arranged it so she did not have to sign up with the Jewish register. “When the Germans asked for the Jewish population to register, many people did not think anything of it.” Peperzak said. Identified then with a Star of David, the Jews began to slowly be disallowed from daily activities including transportation, working and many freedoms that are taken very much for granted by the general popu-

lace today. Peperzak related her life in the German controlled Netherlands. She remembered being in school and having to take finals during air raids and hearing the sounds of bombs dropping around the city. Things that today’s average college student couldn’t even imagine. Very modest, she simply said that the people did what they had to do in order to live the best they could. Peperzak used her advantage of non-marked identification to help those less fortunate by aligning herself with the Dutch resistance. “There was never choice for me whether to join the resistance or not. It was something that I saw needed to be done, and I thought that I could do it.” Peperzak said. As she ended her discussion the audience was visibly touched and rose to their feet for a standing ovation. The gratitude and admiration was almost tangible as Peperzak was overwhelmed and thanked everyone as her eyes began to water and was escorted off stage by her daughter. Following her departure there was a brief intermission before the feature production was underway.

A little bit of heart and soul Up-and-coming solo act Mikki Hommel earns laughter and applause in lower SUB Tyson Juarez Features Editor

M

ikki Hommel delivers what most audiences wouldn’t expect; a bit of soulful songwriting and nicely placed comedic bits that break up the per formers set, adding an interesting new take on the singer song/writer genre. Hommel per formed solo at the SUB on November 13th with nothing but a red electronic piano and her voice. Hommel showed to be a talented musician as her fingers flew across the keyboard backing up her bright and power ful vocals. “ I taught myself to play piano,” said Hommel. Her songwriting proved to be on par as well as she tackled many serious subjects about love and life. Before

DID YOU KNOW?

some of her more serious songs, Hommel would jokingly call herself “emo.” Hommel continuously made jokes similar to this throughout her show adding comic relief where she saw fit. Hommel also created bright and happy atmosphere that contrasted with some of the more serious and sad songs she had been playing. While before Hommel showed character by adding comic relief to darker songs, she also showed an overall more positive side to her show. One of her songs describe her cur rently meeting someone wor thwhile.

“I wrote this song because I finally met someone who doesn’t suck,” said Hommel. She constantly had a bright aura

and always had a smile on her face as she per formed her songs. Hommel’s de- liver y was interesting as she star ted the show with a power ful and soulful song showing of f her talents as a pianist and as a singer. She then transitioned to telling quirky jokes shyly and eventually calling upon the audience for subjects to put into her improve songs. One of her improve songs consisted of Hommel singing about love, board games, and strange food combinations. Such a mixture

had the audience laughing. Aside from be influenced by Hutchinson’s music and act, Hommel also got encouragement from her sister at a young age. “My sister told me I had to sound like Whitney Houston and Maria Car rie at a young age,” said Hommel. Mikki is also influence by Eric Hutchinson who also uses comedy to break up his set. Hommel is cur rently working on an album back on the East coast and is hoping to release it by sometime next year. Mikki is currently touring to smaller venues in the area and playing more college shows.

Philosphy Club leaders talk critical thinking, Marx Dave McKerracher, Stephen Troxell put club agenda in perspective Leo Schnepf Staff Writer Merriam Webster defines philosophy as, “ The study of ideas about knowledge, truth, the nature of meaning of life, etc.” When you think about it, you probably come to the realization, if you haven’t already, that you use philosophy every day, especially as a college student. So it seems only natural that some very hardworking NIC students founded the NIC Philosophy club, to promote philosophy and critical thinking among students on campus. All students are welcome, as long as they come with an open mind, and the will to learn. I recently had the chance to sit down with two of the club’s charismatic council members, club vice president Stephen Troxel, and club president Dave McKerracher. The two friends were eager to chat about their project, and to shed more light upon what goes on inside of the Philosophy Club. Sentinel: Hey guys thanks for letting us interview you. I’m going to start with a very general question: What is the purpose of Philosophy Club? Stephen: Oh, I know Dave has an answer for this.. Dave: Firstly, to promote philosophy on campus. Second, to provide a forum for intellectual discussions, learning about the exchanging of intellectual ideas. Stephen: Yeah, a place for inspiring intellectuals to grow! Dave: ...Because most places if you hang out and want to talk about things like this, most people are going to assume that you’re being pretentious, when in reality, all we’re trying to do is understand different points of view. That being said, if you come into the club with a specific worldview that you’re very attached to, you’re not going to last long. We want to bring in structured debates, professional lecturers, movie analyses, all while drinking coffee. Sentinel: Wow, I really need to

come hang out with you guys. Stephen: Do it! Sentinel: The club is now affiliated with the Secular Student Alliance. What encouraged you to become part of that? Dave: They of fer many great resources and opportunities, and I’d say that the large majority of the club is secular. The club members who aren’t secular understand that to have an intellectual discussion with people from dif ferent walks of life, there has to be a sor t of common meeting place, and that’s what secularism provides. One person could be Buddhist, the other Islamic, and both could agree about secular ideals on some degree. Sentinel: So what are some of the oppor tunities that the SSA provides? Dave: The SSA offers a speaking bureau. Which means that we get access to lectures from over one hundred speakers at no cost. Sentinel: So with all of these speakers, does it ever feel like philosophy club is just an extra class that you’re not getting credit for? Stephen: If you’re electing yourself to go, I think that you’re going to enter philosophy club with a different mindset. Where with class, you HAVE to go, so it’s a different vibe. But also, what makes it a lot less like class, is that there’s a lot more exchange between the students and the professors. There’s usually a solid discussion after ever y lecture. Sentinel: Alright cool...Describe how a typical philosophy club meeting operates. Dave: Well first of all, it takes a lot of planning and coordination within our council. If it weren’t for Megan McCain, Joe Graham, Adrianna Varbero, and Thomas Combstock, philosophy club would be no where near where it is today. That being said, there are two kinds of meetings; lecture, or general meeting.

Stephen Troxell (left) and Dave McKerracher (right) explain their philosophical views why the philosiphy club has decided too tackle the subject of Marxism in todays society. Leo Schnepf/Sentinel

In lecture meetings, we have a lecture, and then after words we talk about it. It’s cool, because during the lectures, ever yone kind of saves up their ideas they want to talk about, until after the lecture is over, and then it’s kind of an explosion of conversations all over the room. For general meetings we tend to show up and discuss, more in depth, what the last lecture was over. Sentinel: So, speaking of lectures, I understand that you guys are about to finish a series of lectures on Karl Marx. Does that make you all certified communists or what? Stephen: (Laughs) No, I’m sure that’s what everyone thinks though. Dave: We actually chose him not only because he’s such a misunderstood philosopher, but also, because we thought it would keep away people (from our discussions) that are so close-minded as

to think that we would automatically be talking about communism. Sentinel: Did it work? Stephen: For the most part, yes. Sentinel: So what does the future have in store for philosophy club? Dave: Well, right now we have a huge focus on doing club collaborations. So far we’ve done a few collaborative events with clubs such as the Sociology Club and the NIC Republicans Club. In addition we’re planning on attending more off campus events and lectures, and having more speakers provided to us through the SSA. We’re also going to be watching more films! Sentinel: Alright, cool. The question that I wanted to end on is just a sort of general philosophy question, and that is; How useful is philosophy in every day life? Dave: Very! I want Stephen to go first because he’s not even

a philosophy major, so I want to hear what he has to say. Stephen: I like the saying; “Whatever you give to philosophy you will get back ten-fold.” Because, when you really commit to it, you can see so many applications of it day to day. It’s hard to draw a specific example because it’s just so constant, and you view the world in a different way. At least I do. Dave: Besides making life interesting in general, because, honestly, I have not been bored since I’ve gotten in to philosophy. It also gives us a high level of reading comprehension, clarity of thought, and good communications skills. Socrates said that the unexamined life is not worth living. Some people would argue that, but they’ve probably not examined much of life. Once you go down that rabbit hole, there’s no coming back, because life is just that much more interesting with philosophy.

Venerable Thubten Chodron gives students words of wisdom and is constantly smiling during her speech on November 8. John “Risky” Boltz/Sentinel

n a Friday evening on November 8, Coeur d’Alene residents and NIC students gathered together in Molstead Library’s Todd Hall to listen to Venerable Thubten Chodron’s words of wisdom. Chodron, a Buddhist monastic in the Tibetan tradition came down from her abbey in Newport, Washington in order to speak to students on the subject of the fleeting nature of life and how to live one’s life in a meaningful way. Some of the major tenants in Buddhist philosophy are “right intention, right speech, and right action;” subjects that were delved upon in-depth during

Chodron’s talk. “If we check in our lives and see the things we’re not happy about with ourselves we often find it’s because we’ve done some sort of harm with other living beings,” said Chodron. “When we do that it’s because we about our actions mindlessly. Simply being aware of these thoughts and actions can lead us to a happier and more meaningful life.” A unique aspect to Chodron’s teachings is her use of practical concepts from an otherwise complex and tantric school of religion that are relatable and readily understandable to Westerners of all faiths. “We’re often extremely critical of ourselves and put ourselves down,” said Chodron. “But if we accept ourselves

for who we are and love that person, we can become loving, kind individuals.” Chodron has been engaged in Buddhist practice since 1975. She was taught by a number of Tibetan masters, including the fourteenth Dalai Lama and in 1986 she received her “Bhikshuni” ordination, becoming fully-ordained female monastic. Chodron subsequently taught the Buddhist practice across the world including countries such as India, France, Italy, and Singapore before returning to the United States and establishing the Sravasti Abbey in Newport. Throughout the entirety of her career she has become one of the main figures in re-establishing the female lineage of Buddhist monastics internationally.

On Thursday night, many gathered at the Schuler Perfor ming Ar ts Center In Boswell Hall for Fa la la la la and All That Jazz, an exciting welcome to the holidays right around the cor ner. Max Mendez and the NIC Vocal Jazz opened the show with “Fly Me to the Moon”, a calm yet catchy tune sung by Frank Sinatra. “One of my dreams has been to spend Christmas in New York,” said Mendez, “Frank Sinatra really captures that spirit.”

After playing two more songs, Mendez took a moment to acknowledge his co-worker and friend, Ter r y Jones. Mendez thanked Jones for all his hard work and dedication he puts into his work ever y day. “I have had the pleasure of seeing the energy Ter r y has shared with his colleagues and students,” Mendez stated, “he is a pillar of this constitution and it’s time to give him recognition.” The audience applauded while Jones came on stage and waved. The vocal ensemble went on to play and sing songs, each ver y mellow- except the last number. “How Sweet It Is” was sung by the ensemble, and the atmosphere in the room shifted from quiet, to giddy and smiling. The tune was so upbeat, and fun, and the crowd really picked up when

hor: The Dark World, is the newest installment in the Thor series, and it is the third Mar vel superhero movie in which Chris Hemswor th plays the invincible man-hunk from outer space. Unfor tunately, and unsurprisingly to some, Thor: The Dark World, lives up to neither the hype, nor the Mar vel franchise’s standards (which, let’s be honest, aren’t that high in the first place). The second Thor movie finds our extra-terrestrial hero pitted against one of Asgard’s age old enemies, the dark elves, who, like most super villains these days, have hatched a new plan for general universe destr uction. So how does eventually Thor come into the mix? Well, after cleaning up the aftermath of the last universethreatening disaster (see, The Avengers), Thor’s ear thling girlfriend, Jane Foster (Natalie Por tman), ingests an other worldly ether that makes her extremely sick and irritable. It just so happens that of all of the substances in the universe that Jane could have swallowed, this happens to be the one that the dark elves needed to turn the lights of f

on the cosmos. Let the epic tug of war begin! Unfor tunately the amount of “epic” in this movie is not nearly as close to what you would expect, and it’s just one in a series of missteps that make this movie a blundering mess. There’s quite a bit of standing around in Asgard before anything exciting takes place, and as any Mar vel director should know, the Marvel movies’ strengths are not in the intricacies in their plot (or rather the lack there of), as much as they are within complexities of their action choreography and the hours spent adjusting special effects. Thor: The Dark World’s attempts to delve more deeply more into it’s characters is met with extremely shallow results. I know Jane Foster is supposed to be Thor’s princess in distress, waiting to be saved, but she is SUCH a weak female character, it can drive most people just a tad bit insane. If Jane is in fact the brilliant scientist that the movie suggests, then perhaps she should spend more time putting that brain to work, instead of screaming and cr ying for her boyfriend like a seventh grade girl. I was hoping that this film would at least give it’s main character more dimension, however, I was again

I don’t know about you, but I signed up to watch a superhero movie, not high definition housewife por n. The only aspect of this movie that manages to redeem itself is the comic relief supplied by Thor’s satanic brother, Loki (Tom Hiddlestone). Although hardly enough to save an other wise clumsy movie, Loki manages to pull a few genuine laughs out of the audience, and the relationship between the two brothers is the only one wor th watching in the entire film. Among so many prosperous looking films this Fall, Thor: The Dark World is a letdown. Super-fans will be satisfied, but the rest of us will leave the theater with a migraine, and a burning desire that they should have saved their money, or perhaps gone to see practically anything else. Watch this film at home, if at all.

They could never go outside and relied heavily on resistance workers much like Mrs. Peperzak. As time passed there were many close calls. Eventually they were tur ned in by a

thief who heard noises but was scared away at first. When they had settled and it looked like the war was nearing an end, the Frank family was actually caught and separated to various camps. Otto Frank was the sole sur vivor and as the play came winding to a finale the crowd hushed. A resounding oration of what was done

Back to nationals NIC volleyball advances to nationals, will face Arizona Western Garrett Cabeza Sports Editor Robby Palmer Staff Writer The 16th-ranked North Idaho College volleyball team (16-10) beat in-state rival and eighth-ranked College of Southern Idaho Nov. 1 at home. A week later at the Region 18 tournament, it beat the Lady Golden Eagles in five sets at Salt Lake Community College to clinch a berth to the NJCAA national tournament in Casper, Wyo., Nov. 21-23. NIC will play No. 8 seed Arizona Western College Thursday at noon PST. “I think we are going in there (to nationals) definitely trying to go as deep as possible,” NIC sophomore libero Russia Robinson said. This will be NIC’s fourth straight appearance at nationals. “I think it’s going to be our mentality,” Robinson said. “It’s going to be each and every one of us going in there and thinking and believing that we can beat every team that we play, because we can.” NIC has been tested with top competition all year having played multiple top 10 teams already this season, including Salt Lake and CSI. The Lady Cardinals, who entered the Region 18 tournament as the No. 3 seed, beat No. 6 seed Colorado Northwestern in three sets with scores of 25-13, 25-6 and 25-6 on Nov. 8 to advance to the semifinals against CSI later that day. NIC beat CSI 26-24, 25-16, 18-25, 19-25 and 15-7. Allison Meehan had 50 assists, Claassen had 21 kills and 19 digs, Robinson 24 digs and Leeta Grap 17 kills and 19 digs. The Lady Cardinals’ tournament run ended the next day in the championship game against Salt Lake Community College. The Lady Bruins won in straight sets with scores of 25-22, 25-21 and 25-21. Robinson was named Region 18 Libero of the Year last week. She led the conference in digs per set with 4.99. She said at the beginning of the season her team was told to make a list of goals that they wanted to accomplish and two of Robinson’s goals were to be named Libero of the Year and to lead the conference in digs. Mission accomplished. “She’s the best libero I’ve coached,” NIC head coach

In NIC’s previous game against the Central Wyoming Rustlers, Central Wyoming’s Daryle Morgan, Jr. sank a 3-pointer as time expired to send the game into overtime,

Miles Kydd said. “I haven’t seen everybody, but she’s gotta be the top two or three in the country, if not No. 1.” NIC previously beat CSI in three sets (25-20, 25-22 and 2519) at Christianson Gymnasium Nov. 1 on Sophomore night. NIC’s victory was bittersweet, as this was the last time the sophomores would ever serve, set or spike the ball in a game at Christianson Gymnasium. Some of the fans said it was the best volleyball game they had ever seen. “This was a special night for a special group of kids,” Kydd said. Robinson, who had four aces, came up with a deep dig in the first set that set the

tone for just how determined the team was to win the game. Robinson finished the game with 16 digs. CSI defeated the Lady Cardinals earlier this year, so NIC knew they were going up against some tough competitors even before the game started. “We were kind of in a slump that we couldn’t get out of, but everybody pulled together and had fun, and just let it all out,” said Grap, who had 11 kills. “(We) didn’t feel any pressure or anything and everybody was coming together.” Anyssa Matheson contributed 9 kills and Meehan ended with 29 assists and 13 digs. “This was the best game we have played all year,” Meehan said.

but NIC responded in the overtime period and beat the Rustlers 82-75 Friday at Christianson Gymnasium. “We always talk about heart as a team and I think today we really came together,” Tucker said. NIC spread the wealth with five Cardinal players scoring in double figures, including Tucker, who scored 20 points on nine of 16 shooting from the field and pulled down seven rebounds. “He (Tucker) scores in a variety of ways,” Phay said. “He’s a guy we need to get the ball to a lot, but he also just makes things happen.” “They had all the momentum going into overtime,” Phay said. “A lot of times that’s the team that wins the game because they have all the momentum and the fire, so I was really happy with how we responded in overtime.” Wallace hit a 3-pointer from

Pittsburgh Pirates’ center fielder Andrew McCutchen and Detroit Tigers’ third baseman Miguel Cabrera won their league’s Most Valuable Player award last week, and deservingly so. McCutchen’s speed and his ability to hit for power and average resulted in impressive numbers. McCutchen hit .317 with 21 home runs, 84 RBIs and a .404 on base percentage this season. His power stood out to me because he is only 5-10, 185 pounds. He also added 27 stolen bases to his stats. McCutchen didn’t just produce offensively, his speed in center field enabled him to run down fly balls and cover a lot of ground in the outfield. McCutchen finished ahead of Arizona Diamondbacks’ first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and St. Louis Cardinals’ catcher Yadier Molina in the MVP voting. He also helped bring winning back to a city that has been longing for it for quite some time (at least in baseball). The Pirates qualified for postseason play this year for the first time since 1992 when Barry Bonds played for the team and won the MVP. Pittsburgh earned one of the Wild Card spots after posting a 94-68 record this season, finishing three games behind the eventual National League champion St. Louis Cardinals. McCutchen deserved the MVP because he was the best player in the National League. However, I think his team’s success also helped propel him in the MVP race, which I don’t entirely agree with. MVP awards should be based mostly on an individual basis with little attention being paid to the team’s performance. Some people overemphasize winning when it comes to analyzing MVP candidates. But one player can’t control his team’s destiny. Success in team sports comes from all nine players on the field working together as a unit and knowing their roles. One player can’t carry a team even though it seems like that’s the case sometimes. Therefore, an MVP-caliber player can’t be faulted for struggling teammates. Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, for example, may have received more MVP votes if his team played better. Losing teams don’t receive as much media attention as the winning teams. As a result, its players don’t receive the spotlight that they might deserve. Cabrera was probably the right choice though for the American League MVP. Even though Trout had an amazing season, it would have been difficult to give the award to anyone else with the numbers Cabrera posted. Cabrera made hitting MLB pitchers look easy and effortless. Like McCutchen, Cabrera hit for power and average. The Tigers’ slugger hit .348 and blasted 44 home runs. He also added 137 RBIs. Some people say Cabrera stacks up against some of the greatest hitters of all time. With the past couple seasons he’s had and looking at his career statistics, it’s hard to argue that he isn’t one of the greatest hitters ever. However, the history of baseball has seen some excellent hitters like Ted Williams and Lou Gehrig just to name a couple. This season, Cabrera did everything offensively for the Tigers and played some good third base as well showing off his strong arm. Pitchers have been dominating in the Big Leagues the last couple years, but when McCutchen and Cabrera step inside the batter’s box, the tables turn. Garrett Cabeza is an editor for The Sentinel.

Garrett Cabeza Sports Editor The first North Idaho College regular season basketball game played on the new wood floors of Rolly Williams Court belonged to the 14th-ranked Lady Cardinals as they beat the North Idaho AllStars 75-55 Nov. 2. The All-Stars consisted mostly of former college basketball players, including three former NIC players.

NIC (3-1) beat Northeastern Junior College 65-54 Thursday and Casper College 72-58 Friday before falling to the Wyoming AllStars 80-63 Saturday. The Lady Cardinals will play at Columbia Basin College tomorrow before returning home for a seven-game home stretch starting with Dawson C.C. Friday at 5:30.

NIC takes down Montana State-Northern Wrestling rebounds from close loss to Great Falls with win over NAIA-power Montana State-Northern Garrett Cabeza Sports Editor After suffering a 22-21 loss to the University of Great Falls Oct. 25, the North Idaho College wrestling team responded with a 30-16 win over Montana State University-Northern the next day. Nico Moreno (165), V.J. Giulio (197) and Taylor Kornoely (285) all earned pins for the Cardinals. Moreno was losing 10-2 to Ethan Hinebauch before he roared back for the pin in the third period. “Until that final whistle blows, you’ve got to wrestle hard and that shows Nico did “It’s not that,” NCAA said NIC football head coach where we try Pat to schedule Whitcomb. the worst Giteam we can ulio for a tunepinned Garrett up.” DeMers, PAT WHITCOMB a freshNIC head wrestling coach man from Coeur d’Alene, in the first period and Kornoely finished the dual strong for NIC with a pin in the second period over Jorrell Jones. “V.J. is mature,” Whitcomb said. “Obviously, very physically strong, but mentally, he’s in it for the long haul the whole match. If you wrestle with him, you’ve got to be ready for a war and that’s what we need out of V.J.” Sophomore Duell Stadel (125) of Montana State opened up the

Cards’ season ends in semis Men’s soccer wins in OT, loses in Region 9 semifinals Garrett Cabeza Sports Editor La Junta, Colo. - After picking up its first-ever postseason win in the NJCAA Oct. 25 against Northwest College with a 2-1 score, the North Idaho College men’s soccer team lost 2-0 to Laramie County Community College the next day in the Region 9 semifinals. Sophomore goalkeeper Tanner Jones collected ten saves against Laramie County. “After the first third of the season, he (Jones) became that guy,” Thompson said. “Every team has a goalkeeper that comes up big two or three times a game, and he definitely did that this year.” Laramie County’s Dennis VivarDias scored in the 29th minute to

put the Golden Eagles up 1-0 at the half. Then, Jesse Molina scored a goal in the 56th minute off of a corner kick by Domey Espinoza. “All of their attacking players were good when one-on-one,” Thompson said. In the quarterfinals, the Cardinals defeated Northwest College for the third time this season. “You play a team that tight three times a year, it’s unusual you win three times,” Thompson said. NIC beat the Trappers 3-2 in overtime Aug. 25 in Powell, Wyo., and later won 2-1 Sept. 1 at NIC. “In general, I think we’ve come out on top (the three times NIC’s played Northwest) because we are more athletic and have more firepower up top,” Thompson said. “What makes them so tough to

beat is they have talent in the right parts of the field.” This time, the game carried into overtime when freshman forward Adam Talley scored the game winner. Christian Botuli put the Cardinals on the scoreboard first with a free kick in the 39th minute. Will Moats tied the game 36 seconds into the second half before Talley scored the gamewinning goal in overtime. “Late in the game, they get physical if things don’t go their way,” Thompson said. Thompson said two of his players, T.J. Merwin and Alec Johnson, were bleeding from cleat marks at one point in the game. The Cardinals finished 11-6-2, Thompson’s best record at NIC as a head coach.

“It’s not NCAA football where we try to schedule the worst team we can for a tune-up,” Whitcomb said. The second-ranked Cardinals (1-1) will host the Cardinal Duals Saturday starting at noon.

Briefs Women’s basketball Two North Idaho College sophomore basketball players, Georgia Stirton and Renae Mokrzycki, have signed to play with NCAA schools next season. Stirton, a point guard from Melbourne, Australia, will play for Gonzaga and Mokrzycki, a forward from Cranbourne, Australia, will play for the University of Idaho. Stirton was named Region 18 Player of the Year last season and

drove to the basket and scored. Will Dorsey hit two free throws for the Cardinals with 9.5 seconds left in regulation to give NIC a 68-65 lead. Rustlers head coach Pat Rafferty called a timeout with 4.6 seconds left.

He was sent to the free-throw line on the play with a chance to make it a 3-point play and tie the game but he missed the free throw. “I think we just kept our composure and made free throws down the stretch,” Phay said. Leavitt made eight free throws in the last 52 seconds to seal the game for the Cardinals. NIC (3-1) faces Columbia Basin College in Pasco, Wash., tomorrow at 8 and play Blue Mountain C.C.
