UNI could sharply impact C.F. City Council elections

AMY PEIFFER Staff Writer


With November just around the corner, candidates for the Cedar Falls City Council are gearing up for the election season ahead. Here at the University of Northern Iowa, students can participate in the Cedar Falls City Council election by voting on Nov. 5. “UNI students could have a

tremendous impact and completely change city council and mayoral elections if a high number of them turned out and voted in Cedar Falls,” said Christopher Larimer, associate professor of political science. Larimer said students can change their registration on Election Day, as Iowa has same-day registration. “The idea is to make it more convenient to vote,” said Larimer. He explained that local government is responsible for setting budgets for streets, roads, parks and recreational areas students use. The City Council election is “affecting the daily lives of students more so than what happens at the presidential level,” said Larimer. He said, however, that voter turnout for local municipal elections is minor compared to presidential elections or even gubernatorial elections. The statewide turnout rate in Iowa for a gubernatorial election is mid-50 to 60 percent.

When families struggle to find proper housing, Habitat for Humanity steps in and helps them get back on their feet by fixing and building houses, which needy families can purchase at little to no profit for the organization. At the University of Northern Iowa, students can roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty by getting involved with the UNI chapter of Habitat for Humanity, which houses 30 members. Kelsey Morrison and Travis Busch, the president and vice president of the organization, have been a part of UNI Habitat for Humanity for two and a half years. “(I) got to meet a lot of different people and do a lot of different stuff,” said Busch, senior exercise major.

Debt ceiling looms over Congress AMBER ROUSE

Staff Writer

In these next few weeks, Congress will decide whether to raise the debt limit — a cap set by Congress on how much the federal government can hold in outstanding debt — or risk default, according to the Bipartisan Policy Center.

After the debt limit was suspended in February, the limit was reinstated at a higher level in May. However, the U.S. is toward the limit again, and will exhaust its cash on hand. The U.S. Treasury will no longer be able to pay its federal financial obligations on time and in full sometime between Oct. 18 and Nov. 5,

according to the center. In late September, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew informed Congress that he will exhaust borrowing measures on Oct. 17. This will leave him with less than $30 billion to pay the nation’s bills. Lew pushed for action < See DEBT, page 2

While a presidential election is around 60 to 70 percent, according to Larimer, a local municipal election can get as low as 15 or 20 percent. Cedar Falls is divided into five wards, each with a representative running for candidacy. The candidates for Ward 1 are David Hartley and Mark Miller. Hartley is a sales manager for Woolverton Printing. Miller owns a construction business and has been a leader in the North Cedar Neighborhood Association. Both of these candidates are new to the position, as incumbent Tom Hagarty has decided not to run for re-election, according to a press release. Susan deBuhr is the incumbent for Ward 2 and is running for re-election. However, because the wards

were redrawn, current Ward 4 representative Mare Madsen Schmidt is also running for Ward 2. Schmidt owns an art supply store on College Hill and is a UNI alumna. John Runchey is the only representative running for Ward 3. He owns Northern Iowa Construction Products, a construction materials business. Ward 4 is vacant because of redistricting. UNI’s field experience coordinator, Jim Stichter, is the Ward 4 candidate, according to the press release Strichter said he has resided in Cedar Falls since 1996. When Strichter’s colleagues and friends approached him last spring with the opportunity of running for city council, he was not interested. However, after attending a city meeting and also a meeting with the mayor and current council, Strichter

Lew pushed for action immediately to raise the nation’s debt ceiling. As of now, the federal debt limit is at $16.7 trillion. “If we hit the debt limit we can’t borrow any more money, and how our government borrows money is from people who want to invest in the U.S. government,” said Donna Hoffman, department head of political science. According to Hoffman, raising the debt ceiling is part of normal business. Whenever the nation reaches the debt ceiling, which occurs periodically, the ceiling must be raised. Concerned students will have no need to worry about the impact of the debt ceiling if the limit is set higher. If the government doesn’t raise the limit, then Hoffman said students should worry. “The debt ceiling being raised is what you want to happen, because then things can continue on,” Hoffman said. “Should the debt ceiling not be raised is when there will be bad effects on the economy. But things that are written into current law in terms of student loan rates and that kind of thing would still go on.” In a letter to Congress, Lew said, “If we have insufficient cash on hand it would be impossible for the United States of America to meet all of its obligations for the first time in our history,” according to the Washington Post.

new limit on Oct. 17. This is about two weeks earlier than what some independents and analysts predicted. According to Hoffman, the last time the government flirted with the debt ceiling date, not only did the bond rating of the U.S. decline, but the stock market also dropped. “The problem is, you don’t know what will happen and we really don’t want to know what would happen. What we do know for certain though is that if our government doesn’t meet the deadline, our economy will suffer,” Hoffman said.

Along with the debt ceiling is the possible government shutdown Oct. 1. “Don’t confuse the debt issue with the shutdown,” said Hoffman. “The government shutdown potentially happens on Tuesday, Oct. 1. There we can see the impact on students. Let’s say a student was applying for a passport or trying to get a visa. Those kinds of things will come to a halt. So there would be a government shutdown that would delay things students might be interested in.” A shutdown would occur if Congress can’t finish the budget. Another way a shutdown can affect students directly is that there would be delays in the processing of student aid applications. “Quite frankly the budget process in Congress is broken and has been for a number of years,” Hoffman said. “We’re unsure as to what impacts it will have, and that is problematic when we’re in a recovery and that recovery has been relatively weak.”

OCTOBER 1, 2013







An open letter to UNI President William Ruud Dear President William (Bill) Ruud, Friday is your big installation day. Professors will don their hats and gowns, students will thank you for your help in getting their morning classes cancelled and I'm sure a number of distinguished Iowans will be present to send you their best wishes for the future. As for yourself, you will probably crack a joke in the beginning of your big speech, express your admiration for everyone at the university and then you will say something positive about the future of UNI, wrapping everything up with a nice “purple for life!” After the pomp and circumstance winds down, however, and everyone has enjoyed their free food, you will return to wellknown issues such as increasing enrollment, ensuring sufficient funding from the legislature (hoping Gov. Terry Branstad does not veto it) and making UNI the top comprehensive regional university. Most everyone is aware of these issues, and they're not

uncommon at universities. However, within the crevices of UNI, there are smaller murmurs that are not vocalized as well, but deserve just as much attention as the formerly mentioned issues. First off, there is the tension between the UNI faculty and the upper administration. Everyone knows about the fiasco of the closures and the public relations mayhem that occurred two years ago, but now, we are in the residual effects. The most obvious one is the American Association of University Professors censure UNI is facing, but there are others such as regaining the trust of the faculty by showing a willingness for discussion. From both the recent Iowa Board of Regents meeting and from the special faculty meetings that occurred a few weeks ago, major faculty leaders have expressed that you're willing. Second is the public image of the university. Sometimes, I like to think of Iowa State University and the University of Iowa as the mom and dad, and UNI as the awkward step child of the state. Though U

Though progress is being made, it is important to remember one essential thing: transparency.

of I is still reeling from “Vodka Sam” and its Number One Party School status, it's also known internationally for its prestigious medical school. Iowa State has clever marketing, like “Choose Your Adventure,” and they're known for their agriculture and veterinarian education. Here at UNI we have our education program, which we're also globally known for, but which has received a critical hit after the closure of Malcolm Price Laboratory School. When you are known as the education school, it should always cause great alarm when that image looks like it is faltering, even though, in reality, the education students are receiving may be

fine. Having said that, I believe you are aware of these issues and you are well on your way to making this university a better place. During public meetings, faculty leaders have emphasized your willingness to discuss and negotiate issues. You have also hired Scott Ketelsen as the new director of University Relations, who has impressive marketing experience from U of I and Kirkwood Community College. Though progress is being made, it is important to remember one essential thing to keep things going: transparency. No one at this university wants to feel duped, or be treated like they are too incompetent to understand an important issue. No one wants to be blindsided by a lifealtering decision. And while it is sometimes necessary, no one actually wants to hear a public relations-crafted message spouting from your mouth. For right now, I really do believe you are trying your best to be transparent. Encourage the rest of your administration to do the same. Continue doing

things that keep the university in a positive light, such as helping students move in to the residence halls and emphasizing the great faculty at UNI. And even after the pomp and circumstance of your first year, remember your goals and aspirations and commitment to serving the UNI community. While you'll be forever physically installed at the university, the longer lasting impact is how you made people feel and how you listened to the UNI community when hard times came about. But now, enjoy your picnic, and your big installation day this week. And please — don't forget to eat your own cake.

UNI students rise up against domestic abuse KELLEN NILLES Staff Writer

October is known for autumn and Halloween, but for the last 20 years it has also been Domestic Violence Awareness Month. “We have celebrated the month here at UNI for a number of years in different ways,” said Catherine MacGillivray, Women and Gender Studies director. “Last year was the first year we decided to participate in the Clothesline Project, but we have participated in other ways in the past.” According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence website, Domestic Violence Awareness Month was first observed in October 1981 with the intent to connect abused women across the nation. It soon became a week of activities, and in October 1987 it became the first observed violence awareness month and the first national toll-free hotline was created. Two years later, U.S. Congress passed the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month legislation. The Clothesline Project

is a national project that involves decorating T-shirts to convey the kind of abuse a person has experienced. Red or pink represents rape or sexual assault, yellow or orange represents domestic violence, blue or green represents childhood sexual violence and black represents political violence. There are a variety of events on campus to raise awareness of domestic violence including decorating T-shirts. The Women’s and Gender Studies program will have T-shirt decorating sessions in Macker Union. The project allows students to anonymously share their experiences with violence or to be an ally and support the survivors. Community members are invited to join students in the events. Some individuals will have the chance to tell their own stories of domestic violence to the students. “Domestic violence crosses race, class, and (it) can happen to (virtually) anybody,” said Kristen McNutt, graduate assistant in the Women’s and Gender Studies program. “Domestic violence

isn’t just physical abuse; it can be mental, emotional, financial, (etc.).” Another project individuals can partake in is Shine the Light on Domestic Violence. This national program, along with the Clothesline Project,

will make its second appearance on campus. Students will be able to “shine the light on domestic violence” at night when visiting the clothes line display to see the messages. One thing MacGillivray

and McNutt hope to see is more people getting involved during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. “It’s not something that just happens out there,” said MacGillivray. “It happens everywhere.”


Religion becoming less prevalent among young adults Kellen nilles Staff Writer

A g rowing number of young adults across America are identifying as “nones,” meaning they are unaffiliated with any religion, according to a 2012 Pew Research Center study. “(Even in Iowa) there is a lot of pressure to be religious,” said Stef McGraw, president of UNI Freethinkers and Inquirers. “The majority is Christian, and it is hard to leave the majority; it’s a psychological fact.” The study showed that 34 percent of adults under age 30 are religiously unaffiliated. On the other end of the spectrum, the Depression-era Silent Generation and the World War II-era Greatest Generation are reportedly 9 and 5 percent religiously unaffiliated. “I think our culture is changing a little bit,” said Kyle Nelson, a director

of UNI Navigators. “We are becoming less of a Christian culture and it’s becoming more socially normal to not believe, so that people that do group up in the church don’t actually believe it or don’t feel

that they need the institution as much.” While the study shows more members of the younger generations identify as religiously nonaffiliated than members of the older generations, the

total number of Americans associating as religiously unaffiliated is increasing by 5 percent. This is the highest percentage in the last several years. “Some of it is people just grow up religious and

they don’t buy it. They just realize they don’t believe what is being said in the church,” said McGraw. According to the research study, the number of Americans who were raised without an affiliation has risen from 5 percent in the early 1970s to 8 percent in the last decade. However, 74 percent of nonaffiliated adults were actually raised with an affiliation. McGraw also said it may be religion itself that is causing young adults to identify as nones. “There might be some members who are gay or have gay friends who were told by their church that they were sinful, so they questioned religion and from there decided to leave,” said McGraw. The survey found that unaffiliated Americans are more likely to take liberal positions on same-sex marriage. Just under two< See RELIGION, page 5

“And then you get to meet the families you’re helping and they’re all so appreciative of it. And you get to really meet the local people like in Waterloo and Cedar Falls you never see on campus or anything like that,” said Busch. Morrison, senior elementary education major, said UNI Habitat for Humanity does four fundraisers throughout the year, two in the fall and two in the spring. Build days are once a month on Saturdays. “We want to get people more involved with (the group),” said Morrison. “We have come up with little committees like a fundraising committee, relations committee, a collegiate challenge committee.” She said each committee offers input on future projects and promotes the club on campus. Morrison said those involved in the group have the opportunity to partake in colle-

giate challenges during spring break. Morrison has gone to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and Beaumont, Texas, to help build houses. The first time Morrison went on a collegiate challenge she had never been to a build day before. “Everything was difficult at first because I was like, ‘I don’t know what I’m doing,’ but everyone was really nice,” she said. “In Myrtle Beach, they were all like 70-year-old men on the build site helping us and they were so nice and helpful though, so they taught us how to do everything.” “They’re so patient, it doesn’t matter who you are, they’ll teach you anything you want to know,” Busch said of the people he has met on build sites. “If you want to go try to use a nail gun they’re all for it.” For the club’s next projects, Morrison mentioned a leaf rake in the fall and an event at The HuB sometime within the next couple months. The

proceeds will go to their local affiliate as well as toward the costs of their collegiate challenge trips. Morrison said the UNI chapter gets help and project ideas from the local affiliate and their adviser, Patricia Higby, energy education and outreach coordinator. She said that other student organizations on campus have been interested and have helped out, too. Anyone interested in getting involved is welcome, Morrison and Busch said. “That’s our goal for this year, keep people involved and give them little jobs and committees for them to want to stay involved with it,” said Morrison.


Meetings for UNI Habitat for Humanity are held every other Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. in the Curris Business Building in Room 227. The next meeting will be Oct. 8.


there is nothing more important than answering these questions about God,” said Nelson. “They should be careful about listening too quickly and too easily about certain sources. (They should) check the sources and see which one is most plausible of them.”

Getting defensive on the field UNI holds MSU to 6 points in a blowout win RILEY UBBEN

Sports Writer

The University of Northern Iowa defense forced three turnovers that led to 14 points on their way to a 41-6 victory over the ninth-ranked McNeese State University Cowboys. UNI (4-0) allowed just 280 yards while holding MSU far under their average scoring mark prior to Saturday’s game, which was 49.5 points per game. Senior linebacker Jordan Gacke led the Panthers with 10 total tackles, seven of those being solo tackles. “We were playing as a unit out there,” said Gacke. “I felt like we were really flying around today. Everyone was getting their hat to the ball.” UNI forced its first turnover of the game on the opening kickoff on a fumble that was recovered by Jeremy Johnson at the MSU 26-yard line. However, the Panthers could not capitalize on the turnover and walked away with no points on their first possession. The Cowboys offense drove down the field methodically during their first possession before being stopped by the Panther defense on a fourth down at the UNI 33-yard line. The Cowboys’ first drive was 11 plays for 53 yards before the turnover on downs. The Panther defense made adjustments and held the Cowboys to just 50 yards on 19 plays during their last five possessions of the half. “They were fast and we knew they had the size,” said UNI head coach Mark Farley. “I just thought that we had to play four quarters of football and I thought our team was in the right mindset (to do so).” Despite the Panthers’ stingy defense, the second half belonged to the offense. Of the Panthers’ 41 points scored, 24 of them came in the second half. UNI got on the scoreboard early in the first half as it put together a four play, 73-yard scoring drive to start the half. The drive took just 1 minute, 53 seconds off the clock

and was highlighted by Kevin Vereen’s 34-yard one-handed reception. Vereen tallied a team high 109 receiving yards. “If I make a nice catch and Sawyer (Kollmorgen) makes a nice throw, I think that intensity keeps carrying over and we keep making plays downfield,” said Vereen. Kollmorgen looked deep again the next play as he hit Chad Owens in the corner of the endzone for a 25-yard touchdown. David Johnson’s second touchdown of the day came off of a 5-yard pass from Kollmorgen. Johnson finished with 86 yards rushing, 108 yards receiving and two total touchdowns on the night. Kollmorgen threw for 288 yards and four total touchdowns. The Panthers begin conference play as they travel to Fargo, N.D., to face the topranked North Dakota State Bison on Saturday.
