Student who reported sexual assault faces false filing charges LINH TA

Executive Editor

A female University of Northern Iowa student who reported being sexually assaulted and burglarized in the ROTH residence hall is now

facing charges for filing a false report regarding the sexual assault, according to the UNI Police Department. UNIPD charged 21-year-old Elizabeth Richmann with filing a false report to law enforcement after investigating her

Sept. 15 report. Richmann told police two white males drove her home from a bar around 2:30 a.m. Sept. 15. Upon returning to her residence, the males followed her inside and assaulted her. A campus-wide crime alert was sent out regarding the

alleged assault and theft. The identified suspects stated the sexual activity was consensual. Later, Richmann also stated the sexual activity was consensual. A theft was also reported in Richmann’s apartment, and the

Black Hawk County Attorney’s Office declined prosecution of any alleged theft. Richmann reported that $538 worth of items were stolen in September. The false report is under investigation. Charged parties are innocent until proven guilty.


“Chancey is one of the guys who would be in history books because they have it all figured out.” - Darian Everding, sophomore physics and religion double major

Remembering a professor, colleague and friend LINH TA

Charles Clifton “Cliff ” Chancey was a man of poise and humor, wit and kindness, curiosity and tenacity. However, when he served as professor and head of the physics department at the University of Northern Iowa, he was also a man who made sure he bought at least two diet Pepsis a day, told jokes to his Physics classes and, most importantly, put students first. “Chancey as a department head was one of the most welcoming and willing persons to help you when you had a question or dilemma, or even just wanted to chat,” said Jeffrey Wallace, UNI alum. “His time was never worth more than speaking with a student, no matter how busy his schedule was.”  See CHANCEY, page 2

UNI professor overcomes breast cancer and looks to the future AMBER ROUSE News Writer

A week before school started at the University of Northern Iowa in 2012,

Gowri Gulwadi, associate professor of interior design went to a doctor for a normal mammogram check-up. When she returned for her follow-up however, some-

thing not-so-normal was flagged. Gulwadi was diagnosed with stage 2A breast cancer. “I was pretty much in disbelief,” said Gulwadi. “I was

all into organizing and getting prepared for the semester, and it was all of a sudden. It was also a very surreal feeling because you don’t believe it’s happening to you.”

Gulwadi underwent nine to 10 months of treatment, which started with her first surgery in August 2012.  See BREAST CANCER, page 2

Now, the hiss of an opening Pepsi bottle and the laughter from a joke has been silenced in his office. Chancey passed away Oct. 19 when returning from a trip to China for stem cell treatment and other treatments for Lou Gehrig’s disease. He served the UNI community for almost 12 years. “I always really wanted to make sure that I was going to make him proud, because it seemed like he always expected me to be my best and do my best,” said Darian Everding, sophomore physics and religion double major. “I’m still left with this feeling of wanting to do my best to make him proud.” Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1955, Chancey obtained his Bachelor of Science in Physics at Miami University in 1977. He later received his master’s and doctoral degrees in physics and theoretical physics at John Hopkin’s University in 1985, and his post-doctoral degree in theoretical physics at Oxford University in 1988. At UNI, Chancey started the nanoscience minor, coordinated the professional science mas-

family deal with it. Friends helped by giving her children rides to school, s e n d i n g articles on Gowri Gulwadi how to speak with children about cancer and bringing over meals. “After the diagnosis and soon after, I truly felt just the outpouring of support,” said Gulwadi. “I don’t really like a lot of attention on myself, but at that time I felt so supported. This was the universe trying to tell me how cherished I am.” While Gulwadi received information on how her body would change on the outside, she was more concerned with how it would change on the inside and what she could do

to help her body cope with the cancer. Gulwadi took matters into her own hands and went on a vegan diet to test the effects of nutrition on cancer. Afterward, she noticed a change in her body. “I do feel really good about some of my dietary changes, but has it helped? We don’t know, but as long as I feel good. My body is a system and I can’t just look at the medicines.” Through it all, Gulwadi said she believes she got breast cancer for a reason. “In a strange way, the whole cancer journey, life seems better after it,” said Gulwadi. “You have a much more positive outlook on life. Every morning when I get up I try to think about what is my purpose. I am looking forward to a great future.”

ters programs and joined the presidential search committee that hired President William Ruud. “Most of all, he consistently created a nurturing and inclusive environment that made every student feel welcome and important,” said Tim Kidd, associate professor of physics. When Everding was a high school senior at Waterloo West High in Aug. 2011, she said she felt Chancey’s ability to make students feel welcomed and important firsthand. When attending the “educational talent search,” — a program held at the UNI-CUE that aims to inspire and support low-income students in higher education, Wilfred “Mickye” Johnson of Classic Upward Bound asked Everding what she wanted to pursue when she was older. She said she thought physics was interesting. Next thing she knew, Johnson was calling Chancey, asking him to speak with her about the program. “Chancey got on the phone, talked with me, said ‘who are you?’ and invited me to campus for a tour. So a week later … he took me to a personal tour and showed me the labs


and it was very welcoming,” Everding said. Since then, Everding has committed herself to physics and has enjoyed getting to know Chancey over the last few years. For her, his jokes and sense of humor were always enjoyable. “Every time he told something, he looked at you over his glasses and wiggled his eyebrows a little bit,” Everding said. “He would have this look on his face and he was expecting you to laugh. It was awesome.” While losing her mentor has been difficult, Everding said she’s thankful he’s at peace now. “I cannot imagine an affliction much worse than to take your communication ability from a man with such an incredible mind,” Everding said. “So to be inflicted for three months instead of three years, there’s a sense of relief with that.” Services for Clifton are 10:30 a.m. Saturday at First United Methodist Church, with burial in Fairview Cemetery in Cedar Falls.

Redefining the word ‘patriot’ COREY COOLING

Over the last few political cycles, I’ve noticed a disturbing difference in the way we understand what it means to be a “real” patriotic American. In particular, it has become a sort of litmus test for political candidates. Debates rage that one candidate or another “hates America” or is “un-American.” This degradation of patriotism is the result of an era of political gamesmanship. The American flag lapel pins are a recent example. This phenomenon started during the Nixon administration and was popularized during the second Bush administration after 9/11. A report by Time magazine in 2008 explored the apparent controversy over the pins when (then) Sen. Barack Obama debated with Hillary Clinton during the 2008 Democratic primary. While Hillary wore a pin, Barack did not, and he was instantly questioned on the

depth of his patriotism. “I decided I won’t wear a pin on my chest. Instead I’m going to tell the American people what I believe…and hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism,” Barack said in explanation. Now, President Obama wears that lapel pin. Every day. What was once an understanding of the values and principles the U.S. stands for has been reduced to a caricature in the form of a cheap metal pin. Politicking on both sides of the aisle have reduced patriotism to a propaganda weapon, to be used to emotionally pull Americans to one side or the other. They do this by packaging their ideas as if their position is more “American” than the other side. By fostering this us vs. them mentality, they only serve to deepen our partisan divide. Where this gets dangerous is when the American passion blinds us to American faults. Caught up in such a fervor over the greatness of the American nation, we lose sight of the mistakes we need to learn from. We need to be wary of the flagwavers who once defended Jim

Crow laws and looked the other way when we interned thousands of Japanese-Americans during World War II. To call America “The Greatest Country in the World” not only sounds arrogant, but is unquantifiable. In reality, we lead in little more than incarceration rates and the hours of TV watched in a week. Instead of claiming we are the greatest, we should focus on the fact that we can do better. Patriotism, as defined by Merriam Webster, is the “love one feels for their country.” To be a patriot is to have a love for the principles that are at heart of American society: democracy, equality, fairness, justice, opportunity and freedom. Let’s change the image of a patriot from the beer guzzling, cutoff denim-wearing person yelling about “Murica” clad head to toe in red, white and blue to something we can all be proud of. Let us judge a patriot in terms of their service to the wider community. It is in our service to others that we live the values we claim, and MCT Campus how we begin to build a better A flag waves on Aug. 20 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Miss. America.

Connecting without making a connection MADISON McKONE mckonem

In a recent piece by columnist David Pope, he argued the importance of getting out and enjoying nature rather than constantly turning to technology. I am in full agreement with Pope and would like to add to his argument by urging readers to take a step back from their technological lives and really assess their technological usage. There are approximately

310 million people in the United States. A recent survey published in Business Insider reports that of those, 235 million Americans use a mobile device. What’s more is that there are 165 million active Android and Apple OS devices in the United States. It is not uncommon to walk through campus and find students’ eyes glued to their screens. I fall prey to checking for text messages as well, though I have not yet given in to peer pressure and bought a smartphone. Yet, in this day and age, the convenience of having a smartphone is undeniable. You can check your email,

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Recently, the Northern Iowa Student Government decided to provide ceremonial flags for events involving or honoring veterans. This was a strong sign of respect and appreciation afforded those who have served our nation and university. Perhaps now is the time for the University of Northern Iowa administration to demonstrate similar respect and appreciation

in an even more meaningful way by declaring Veterans Day a university holiday. This can be accomplished by either declaring Veterans Day an additional holiday or, if necessary, a replacement for one currently celebrated. No one is more deserving of this recognition than our veterans. Dennis Damon

scroll through your Facebook newsfeed, post to Twitter or catch up on the latest news or celebrity story all in a matter of seconds. The technological age we live in has helped shape modern life in a way that had never before been dreamt of before. The evolution was a fast one, and it continues to bring about new forms of communicating, educating, working, traveling and so much more. Connectivity and access to this constant stream of information is beneficial, but it also begs the question of necessity. I was recently assigned a 24-hour e-media fast for a

class. The time spent away from technology was liberating. Without cell phones, computers and iPods taking up my time, I was able to enjoy what really matters in my life such as my friends, family and nature. While I do agree that these technological advances can and should be embraced, I urge others to step back and assess their own personal usage — maybe even do your own fast. Some users are so engrossed in their online presence that they often become enslaved to the device. In this enslavement, the natural and brilliant things in life are taken

advantage of. We are not meant to live through the image of a glowing screen. We are meant to enjoy it up close, and these gadgets are often a distraction from the real world. The walls of technology confine consumers, and while constant access to technology is convenient, it is also unnecessary. We need to learn to step out of our digital comfort zone and confront the world in person rather than behind a keyboard. I advocate turning toward an unplugged life by disconnecting from technology and connecting to things of real importance.

Controversial musical hits Strayer-Wood KATHERINE JAMTGAARD


Pullinger melds two mediums Award-winning author uses print and digital forms to create fiction CORREY PRIGEON

Staff Writer

Though fall has descended upon the Cedar Valley, spring has been sprouting in the Strayer-Wood Theatre since the first week of classes. It will come into full bloom Oct. 31 with the opening of the theater’s musical “Spring Awakening.” “Spring Awakening” was originally a play written by Frank Wedekind in 1891 that explores teen sex, suicide, abortion, masturbation and sadomasochism. The play was adapted into a musical in 2006 by Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik. “He wanted to grab them by the lapels and say ‘your children are doing this because you won’t tell them anything about their bodies,’” said Jay Edelnant, the director of Strayer-Wood’s musical. In Germany, the show was nearly closed in 1906 but continued running in another city. It also appeared in London, Paris and once in America. However, most audiences have never seen the play in its entirety. Directors typically choose 14 to 16 scenes of the 19-part play to perform, leaving out those they deem the most controversial. The themes of the production are still relevant today among young adults struggling to come of age and identify their sexuality and gender. “Finding out that maybe they don’t believe the same things their parents believe and trying to act on those things, that’s exactly what we’re doing now,” said Edelnant. Though sexual education is offered in high school, some cast members thought it wasn’t gone through thoroughly enough for students to understand what sex is. They said classes refer to the scientific side, such as the anatomy of a person and the risk of diseases, but nothing more. “It definitely tries to hit home with the idea that ignorance is not always bliss, that there’s a fine line between trying to protect somebody and then causing them harm,” said the actress playing the five adult women. Edelnant asked for the names of the actors to not be revealed, due to sexual scenes in the musical.

A character in the show “Spring Awakening” sings a song about masturbation. The musical covers controversial issues including suicide, abortion and sadomasochism. It is intended for mature audiences.

The actor playing Moritz, a student who is traumatized by puberty and his sexual awakenings said, “Everybody has a story and you never know what is going on inside someone’s head when you’re walking to class … you don’t know what’s going on on the inside, under the surface, and all of these kids in the show have so much going on, even if it’s highlighted for one scene.” Because of the controversial topics, some cast members had difficulties connecting with their characters. “It was really hard to take all of the risks in front of the cast and in front of these directors that I just didn’t know and try to find that end product that conveyed Moritz well,” said the actor playing Moritz. For the actress playing the five different women, the struggle was vocally and visually setting each of her characters apart, as well as justifying their actions. “There’s also how harsh the adults are and the decisions that they make that end up causing

great amounts of pain to the kids in the show. And finding a way to justify that has been hard for me,” she said. Despite the controversial themes, Edelnant said President William Ruud has been supportive. “We have a very long tradition here of doing work that explores contemporary social situations, and we’ve done controversial plays and we’ve done plays about sexuality before. And it’s a part of how we teach the university community about issues, as well,” said Edelnant. Due to the nature of the show, it is intended for mature audiences college-aged and older.

Though e-books have gained popularity in recent years, traditional print books still have their place, as does a newer form of literature called digital fiction, according to Kate Pullinger, award-winning print and digital novelist. “One of those things that will never change is that human urge to communicate through stories,” said Pullinger, who addressed the University of Northern Iowa Tuesday night. Digital fiction is a literary genre that takes place in a digital setting and incorporates digital elements into the story, rendering the story incomplete in a printed form. Pullinger defined it as “collaborative works that combine text with images, video, sound effects, music, animation and games.” Pullinger’s lecture, “Literature Online: How Literature is Transforming Fiction,” was held in the Commons Slife Ballroom as part of the 2013-2014 Meryl Norton Hearst Lecture Series. “My networks of people who are interested in my work have really expanded beyond traditional publishing,” said Pullinger. “That’s why I’m here today, and that’s been really interesting and beneficial to me as well.” One of her digital novels, “Inanimate Alice,” has been incorporated into classrooms. She came across a fifth episode of “Inanimate Alice” one day, when she and her digital collaborator had only made four episodes. She discovered a high school teacher in the U.S. had used “Inanimate Alice” as a teaching tool and had her students create their own fifth episode of the story. This idea has expanded, and in 2012, the website for “Inanimate Alice” was awarded Best Website for Teaching and Learning. “I think she really speaks to where a lot people are that are interested in both digital and print technology,” said Jim O’Loughlin, associate professor of languages and literature. While attempting to meld the mediums of both print and digital fiction, Pullinger said she doesn’t feels as though today’s e-books have reached their full potential. Instead, she believes they are a transitional form that will further evolve. She said e-books lack some of the physical properties of print books. The event was well received by both students and faculty. “I thought she did an excellent job on expanding on her works and some of the things that go into that,”said Toby Maggert, freshman math education major. Pullinger said there were a lot of good questions during the question-and-answer session after her lecture and at the following reception. “When there are questions you always feel like people have been thinking about what you said,” said Pullinger. There will be three more lectures in the spring as part of the Meryl Norton Hearst Lecture Series, with speakers such as Cheryl Ball, Juan Luis Suarez and Steven Johnson.

Mitchell, Tuttle asked to be leaders COLE BAIR Sports Writer

With eight new players on their roster, experience, or a lack thereof, is sometimes brought up when discussing the 2013-14 University of Northern Iowa men’s basketball team. The coaching staff is counting on a recruiting class that has the potential to match or exceed the success of the 2008 class that consisted of Jake Koch, Johnny Moran, Anthony James and transfer Ali Farokmanesh. “I think it’s so important for the players to understand it’s a process, especially with the group that we’ve got. We’ve got a lot of young guys and we’ve got some guys that haven’t played a lot of game minutes,” UNI head coach Ben Jacobson said. “Sometimes they want to do everything right and do everything fast. They have to understand, like each and every year, building your team is a process.” Paul Jesperson, Klint

Panthers fall to Sycamores UNI has lost 12 of last 13 games


Injuries mount for UNI NICK ALVARADO


Sports Writer

After the soccer team was blown out by Illinois State University last Thursday, University of Northern Iowa head coach James Price said his team needs to be more competitive if they want the chance to win games. When Indiana State University came to town Sunday, the team came out ready to show their coach they intended to do just that. The Panthers took an early lead over the Sycamores when Allie Brie found herself on the receiving end of a corner kick from Maggie Riley. Brie placed the ball on the far side of the goal, beating the ISU goalkeeper and putting UNI up 1-0. The goal was Brie’s second of the season and the third of the senior’s career as a Panther. It was Maggie Riley’s third assist of the season. UNI held its lead after the first half of play ended.

es,” Jacobson said. “You’ve got to be in the right place and you’ve got to be thinking a play ahead and doing that all of the time. Until you play some games or a lot of games it’s hard to have that feel.” Despite all the fresh faces, coaches said this season’s suc-

cess hinges on the continued development of juniors Seth Tuttle and Deon Mitchell. “(Tuttle’s) ability to shoot the ball will be important because he drives it so well. He puts it on the floor better than he did last year. He’s finally put on about 10 pounds, so he’s stronger. His next step is being able to take contact around the basket, being able to score through contact,” said Jacobson. Coaches are encouraging Mitchell to be the leader on the court, a role he hasn’t had to play in his college career. “I think (Mitchell’s) assists are going to go up again and there’s going to be a good spread between his assists and turnovers now. With the way he’s prepared himself, those numbers could venture into the great category. He’s in better shape. He’s a better player,” Jacobson said. The Panthers will host two exhibition matches before their Nov. 9 season opener at Ohio University.

The Sycamores took command in the second half with two goals of their own, which gave them a 2-1 lead over the Panthers with just over 10 minutes left to play. The first goal came when Abby Reed received a through ball past the UNI defense, beating Panther goalkeeper Nicole Postel on a one-on-one situation in the 64th minute. The second goal came with 12 minutes left in the match when Sydney Loesing fired a shot off of a cross. The shot found the net and gave the Sycamores the lead. UNI tallied eight shots against the Sycamores in the

second half but failed to convert any of them into goals, as they lost by a final score of 2-1. The Panthers have been outscored 21-4 by opponents in the second half of games this season. UNI recorded seven corner kicks and twelve shots throughout Sunday’s match, but the Panthers only forced ISU’s goalkeeper Brittany San Roman to make three saves in the net. The Panthers have three games left on their schedule, including one more conference game before the Missouri Valley Conference tournament starts in November.

Losing one game is unfortunate, and two is certainly troubling, but dropping three consecutive games warrants the University of Northern Iowa football team’s current situation to be defined by those dirty words: losing streak. It’s been hard to watch at times, especially with the latest double-overtime loss to the University of South Dakota still fresh in the mind. It is clear that injuries are really starting to take a toll on the Panthers. Losing a defensive leader like Jake Farley for the season was a brutal blow to the team, and the Panthers’ current sack leader Collin Albrecht was also sidelined against the SDU Coyotes. His status for next week is unclear. Cornerback Jamison Whiting left during the game due to injury as well. Wide receiver Brett LeMaster and tight end Sam Rohr are just two of four offensive starters out for the year. That’s not a pretty list to look at. Corrections need to be made and that starts with the coaching staff. Every football team preaches a “next man up” mentality, and it’s up to the coaches to decide who that next man is and where he needs to line up. If Albrecht is unable to play next week, the Panthers will have to get creative with ways the quarterback can make up for his relentless pass-rushing effort. Leaving the already struggling secondary out to dry is not a recipe for success, so it is important to make their jobs a little easier by dialing up some pressure with blitzes and defensive line stunts. Offensively, quarterback Sawyer Kollmorgen must take care of the football and continue the solid play he was putting forth before the USD game. The Panthers’ offense is built around running back David Johnson, so that makes mistakes in the passing game harder to overcome because of the play-making opportunities he is deprived of. It seemed that Kollmorgen was trying to do a little too much on Saturday, and that can be traced back to the lack of healthy bodies on both sides of the ball. The Panthers are reeling right now, and they will be desperate for a win against South Dakota State University. The coaching staff must take the appropriate measures to make sure the “streak” is irrelevant by this time next week.
