Students simulate drunk driving KIRSTEN TJOSSEM Staff Writer

University of Northern Iowa students took a break from pumping iron at the Wellness Recreation Center on Wednesday, Feb. 20 to check out “UNI I am Making Safe Decisions.” Put on by UNI Public Safety, Wellness and Recreation Services, local and state law enforcement and other university departments, the goal of the event was to educate students on the choices made while consuming alcohol. “Hopefully the kids make better decisions with drinking. Hopefully they think

about slowing down and who it affects. It affects everything,” said Scott Bentley, UNI patrol officer. The event featured a lifesize drinking and driving sim-

NISG candidates debate the issues


Staff Writer

While the snowy weather was blowing outside, University of Northern Iowa students attended the Northern Iowa Student Government debate in the Maucker Union Coffeehouse on Feb. 21 to hear what the NISG presidential and vice presidential candidates had to say about their vision for the future of student government. The tickets brought experience in leadership positions and their platforms were unique to UNI. “On our platforms, we have a lot of new ideas, which we would like to try out,” said Tom Madsen, candidate for NISG president. “We are very passionate about not just doing the same old thing, because you will never (know) if something can be better if you don’t try something new.” W hile NISG presidential candidate KaLeigh White may currently sit as vice president of NISG, she said that her platform with < See DEBATE, page 2

NISG presidential and vice presidential candidates debated Thursday in Maucker Union. The candidates, from left to right, were: Alicia Jessip and KaLeigh White; Tom Madsen and Blake Findley; David Pope and Katie Grassi.

People began to see what he was doing and contacted the media. Suddenly he was known across the country, and in 1998 Pregracke founded Living Lands and Waters. For Julia Ostapiej, who works with Green Iowa AmeriCorps, Pregracke’s story was motivational and inspirational. “He started small and

expanded. It gives students hope,” she said. Pregracke recalls almost calling it quits during the last seven miles of a cleanup near Chicago, where barrels and tires filled the shores of the river. But he thought, “I can see it. It’s tangible. I need to stick with this.” While so much has been accomplished over Living Land and Waters’ 15 years of existence, there’s still a lot of

work to be done. “There are so many places to go and so much need. We’re just getting started,” Pregracke said. Today, Pregracke takes time to speak to audiences across the country, encouraging them to find what they’re passionate about. “Look around. If you see a problem, I would really encourage you to go after it,” he said.

vice presidential candidate Alicia Jessip has unique ideas. “We do have a lot of new ideas on our platform. These ideas are ultimately expanding and improving what we have seen over the past (year),” White said. “What’s important is making sure that our ideas are important to the students.” NISG presidential candidate David Pope and vice presidential candidate Katie Grassi brought up the idea of a digital student application. “I will say that I like the app that David and Katie talked about where students can post issues and concerns, instead of going to an office or physically putting a note in a box,” said Jenelle Martin, Spanish and business administration double major. “(It’s a) good use of technology.” Paresh Upreti, junior economics and mathemetics double major, was concerned with student attendance at the event. The debate was also live-streamed for stu-

dent viewing. “I listened to the debate but I did not enjoy having so few students attending,” Upreti said. “Since these are the people who will be making the future tomorrow, they should be more involved and they should know what NISG is and how it affects their future.” “I was surprised that more students didn’t come to see what the candidates had to say,” Martin said. “It makes me feel like what the older people say about our generation is true; we aren’t choosing to vote and or educate ourselves about the candidates and their platforms because many of us don’t seem to care.” Former NISG vice president Ian Goldsmith commented on the debate. “Well, I admire all the candidates to have the courage to put themselves out there (and) their ideas out there. Ultimately, what’s most important is that you know these conversations are happening, and that all six of them (are) working really hard to do what’s best for our university,” Goldsmith said.

Jack Delaney, sophomore physics education major, was at the WRC to rock climb but decided to take a turn at the drinking and driving simulator, crashing into the back of a car shortly after putting the alcohol goggles on. “I’ve always been against drinking and driving. It just reaffirmed it,” he said. Though this was the first event of its kind on UNI’s campus, Bentley hopes that it becomes a once-a-year occurrence. Educational alcohol talks in the dorms and holiday enforcement ads on the radio put on through the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau are two other main drinking-related events UNI police are involved in during the school year. “We’re looking out to save people’s careers, money issues and lives,” said Doug Widen, UNI police lieutenant. “My advice to people: designate one person to take care of their group.

Stand up; speak out; participate In case you haven’t heard, the Northern Iowa Student Government elections are today (Feb. 26) and tomorrow (Feb. 27). NISG is, of course, the entity that represents UNI students to the administration and divvies out student organization money. They also fund the SafeRide, Panther Shuttle and initiatives like Voterpalooza. Many students may not know much about NISG or understand how to get involved, and it’s true that communication on both sides needs some improvement. It’s also understandable that some students are jaded with NISG, unsure if it truly advocates for them. Nevertheless, here’s the bottom line: you must participate.


Your NISG senators, president and vice president will serve for a year and represent you in many capacities, whether you vote or not. They will decide which initiatives to fund, which student organizations to recognize and what advice to give various university committees that make important decisions. These decisions include building veterans’ and LGBT centers, utilizing the student services fee we all pay and public safety measures. NISG also holds symbolic power.

As representatives of the student body, many look to NISG to ask what the students want, and they pay attention to the answers. It’s easy. It takes five minutes at the most to fill out your ballot online through MyUNIverse, and in a university of approximately 12,000 students, your votes could tip the scales and make the difference. I know it can be a daunting task, trying to keep up to date with local politics and all the various goings-on at UNI that NISG has a hand in. However, you don’t need to know everything in order to know enough to make a successful, educated decision as a voter. To do some research, visit Any government, large or small, will fail when it ceases to truly speak

Don’t be complacent: Beware the undead We are all currently inundated with zombie literature, films, television shows and pop culture references regardless of our acceptance of the plague. Zombies are everywhere and are invading quicker than vultures on a fresh kill. But where are all of these zombies coming from and what do they really want? Zombies represent our biggest fears: isolation and abandonment as well as stripping us away from the very resources we currently depend on for survival. We have become a nation almost completely dependent on others. Whether we are talking about fuel to heat our homes or water, the basic material essential to life, we have little control over the resources we depend on. We have stripped ourselves of our basic survival instincts and replaced them with reliance on farmers, supermarkets, restaurants and the factory food production and distribution system of an industrialized nation. We will be nothing next to helpless animals when the power shuts down and our cell phone signals vanish. Less than 3 percent of America’s population is employed in agriculture, leaving the rest of us starving, sleep-deprived and desperate to fend for ourselves in the event of an apocalypse. Well, except for the extreme couponers who have several years of stockpile…. Zombies have always been a way to challenge social issues. We have but one man to thank for this: George A. Romero, king of the zombies. Romero gave birth to the horror film as we know it today. While divergence from Romero’s themes is not punishable by death, Romero introduced the horror film as a way


to confront social themes as well as individual fears. Many films produced today follow the same rules that Romero set forth decades ago. Romero’s films not only challenged civil rights issues by casting an African-American male in the lead role during the ‘60s but also gave notice to the generational counterculture of America. These young nonconformists were the same adolescents protesting the authority of the Vietnam War and the disillusionment of our nation. Film was simply becoming a way to question conformity and filmmakers like Romero took full advantage of their access to media outlets to spread the message and understanding of their world. “Night of the Living Dead” became a cult classic because every viewer could take away something different from it. Whether you watched it for the thrill of the show or the underlying social commentary, everyone took something away. Of all supernatural entities – werewolves, vampires, aliens – I believe zombies are absolutely the most possible. Man has always been determined to create the most powerful, destructive weapon, and I’m certain that biological warfare has not escaped the list of possibilities. The zombie virus is just that – a virus. Think of all the viruses we are exposed to almost daily, many of them mutated animal strains.

Potential causes of a zombie apocalypse fall in the realm of science, not the supernatural. Zombies are real people, your friends and neighbors, not thousand-year-old corpses possessed by the devil who come to life only at night to feed on the living. Even the authorities at the Centers for Disease Control have jumped on the zombie bandwagon in an attempt to prepare us for the apocalypse. The CDC’s website is complete with a zombie blog, a graphic novella called “Zombie Preparedness 101” and an educator’s website to provide teachers with the tools necessary to teach zombie preparedness. Dr. Ali Khan of the CDC notes, “If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack.” Your survival ultimately depends on how prepared you truly are for any type of disaster. All disasters are the same when you think about it, really. Our biggest fear stemming from natural disaster is that we won’t be prepared to deal with the lack of resources and imminent danger to human life. This fear can render us helpless, or it can help us rise above whatever disaster sinks its deadly teeth into us – as long as we’re ready. While I’m not condoning mass hysteria and paranoia, it would be nice if there were more than a few hundred of us zombie aficionados left to repopulate the earth after the inevitable event.

Character counts: Vote for Tom and Blake I am a former Northern Iowa Student Government member. I had the honor of serving my fellow students through NISG every semester of my five-year career at UNI in all three branches of the organization. In my long and colorful career, I developed somewhat of a sixth sense when it came to the measure of a person’s character and worth. It is with this experience and intuition that I am endorsing Tom Madsen and Blake Findley. From their records alone, one can see their hard work, vision and dedication. Blake was just a wee little first-termer when he appeared on my radar as someone of note, worth and potential in NISG. History has vindicated my first impression. He has been a dynamic and invested leader of NISG. Tom has dedicated himself to a career of selfless service with an imminent and real chance of bodily injury or death. He has elected to chance the ultimate sacrifice for countrymen unknown; how much more will he chance for the peers in his midst? A cursory glance at their platform sets them apart from the other tickets. While Tom and Blake have statements on a wide variety of issues, they have outlined clear, attainable and rational goals that will enhance the entire student body. They do not demagogue with vague and nebulous promises to any and all demographics, nor do they pander to any one or group of special interest organizations. They are the only ticket to articulate and prove their commitment to bettering the entire student body. It is clear they will do what is needed and not merely what is politically convenient. Improve your community and condition by voting for Tom and Blake. Gage Rewerts UNI alumnus

Music students bring ‘Opera Gala’ to GBPAC ANDREW RUBENBAUER

Theatre Writer


Keri Russell stars as suburban mom Lacy Barrett in “Dark Skies.” The movie came to theaters last Friday.

‘Dark Skies’ horror film dims expectations PAUL LICHTY

Film Critic

I will start off this review by saying that I believe the horror genre is the most difficult genre to pull off effectively. The genre often deals with the supernatural (particularly in recent years with the “Paranormal Activity” movies) and that is a difficult topic to depict convincingly. Therefore, “Dark Skies” had some obstacles to overcome right from its conception. Too bad the filmmakers clearly didn’t have any intention of overcoming those obstacles. Instead, director and screenwriter Scott Stewart has given us a horror film that is dead in the water. The movie tries to sound intellectual right from the start with a quote from Arthur C. Clarke: “Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.” After digesting that quote, we are introduced to the Barrett family, a family of four living in suburbia, USA. This is the most generic, uninteresting family you can get in the movies. The father, Daniel (Josh Hamilton), was recently laid off from work and his relationship with his oldest son, Jesse (Dakota Goyo), isn’t strong because of Jesse’s choice in friends. The mother, Lacy (Keri Russell), is a real estate agent and the youngest son, Sammy (Kadan Rockett), has taken a keen interest in lizards. I’m sure you’re dying to know more already. Sammy begins to have nightmares that all involve a “sandman,” and whenever he experiences these nightmares, something strange occurs. On one night, the refrigerator gets broken into. The next night all of the cans of food get stacked into specific geo-

metric shapes. Later on, all of the pictures in the house are removed from their frames and go missing. After that, the security alarm randomly goes off, indicating that all of the entrances into the house had been broken into even though none of them were. Eventually, all members of the family start to experience phases where they seem to be under the possession of some paranormal spirit. They have no control over what they do and they don’t remember a thing when they are put under this “spell.” Oh, and three migrations of birds fly into the windows of their house. If all of these occurrences don’t seem overdone and unoriginal to you, then you aren’t well versed in the horror genre. And of course a film of this caliber isn’t complete without its stereotypical cast of supporting characters! “Dark Skies” contains three: Jesse’s pot-smoking friend, Kevin Ratner (L.J. Benet), who is a few years older than him and treats and talks about his female “companions” not unlike the male actors in his porn collection; a clueless police officer (Josh Stamberg) who suggests the children stole the pictures from their frames (because nowadays pictures are the first targets of disturbed children!); and a paranormal “expert” (J.K. Simmons) who tells them they are all in danger and there is little time before the spirits will abduct Sammy. What makes his opinion valid? Is it because he posts a bunch of child abduction stories from the newspaper on his wall? That he has a lot of books on aliens? Or that he lives in a rundown apartment with a lot of cats? It’s < See REVIEW, page 6

The University of Northern Iowa School of Music brought the longstanding tradition of opera to UNI with the “Opera Gala,” performed Feb. 22 and Feb. 23 in the Great Hall of the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center. The “Opera Gala,” directed by Sandra Walden, was comprised of selections and scenes from six different operas. The UNI Opera Ensemble, Concert Choral choir and Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra demonstrated a diverse repertoire, varying the performances from scene to scene. The viewers and performers alike received a taste of various formats within the world of opera. “The musicians, directors and stage crew have put a tremendous amount of work into the show, so we are very excited to perform,” said Morgan Kramer. “... The audience provides us all with an energy that is not present during rehearsals.” Sophomore choral education major and “Opera Gala” cast member Kramer had not been exposed to opera before his first performance at UNI last year. He believes it is important to bring this lifelong art form to UNI and to the Cedar Valley since opera is not widely performed in the Midwest. With rehearsals spanning the course of several months, the “Opera Gala” placed vocal and instrumental undergraduate students, graduate students, alumni and instructors side by side onstage. The

eclectic group formed a large ensemble that sang stories of love, sorrow, death, destiny, alcohol and much more. The audience was treated to an excerpt from Verdi’s “Il Trovatore,” in which gypsies sang the “Anvil Chorus” around a campfire in the woods. A love story entwined with lies and manipulation was told in Offenbach’s “Les

Contes d’Hoffman,” an opera written in the 19th century that, for the “Opera Gala,” was set in 1960s Manhattan. The viewers laughed and gasped as mix-ups, lies and truth comically unwound at every twist and turn in Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro.” These famous operas, as Walden described, are a “marriage of music and text.” Along with the text, the vocals and instrumentals were combined with many different lighting elements and extravagant sets and costumes. The “Opera Gala” unified several forms of art and presented them as one “gesamtkunstwerk,” a total work of art, as German composer Richard Wagner would describe.

Kramer believes that learning about this all-encompassing art form is an experience that proved to be a tremendous benefit to UNI music students’ education. “Not only does performing in front of a large audience teach the performers to overcome stage fright, but it forces performers to project both their voices and emotions to the back of the auditorium,” said Kramer. The musicians used their instruments and voices to fill the Great Hall, an auditorium that seats 1,680 people, with arias and chorus lines in English, French and Italian. Backed by a full orchestra, the vocal artists sang without the help of microphones. “Whenever I perform on the Great Hall stage, I look around and see the amazing singers, instrumentalists, directors, stage crew and audience members that make such a performance possible,” said Kramer. James Healy, UNI School of Music alumnus, believed the “Opera Gala” was one of the best he had seen. “The show was stunning – a true spectacle. It is beyond inspiring to return to performances at UNI, always leaving with the realization that this program is one in a million,” said Healy. “As performers, we hope the ‘Opera Gala’ transports the audience to a place far away from anxiety and stress,” said Kramer. “If the entire audience, or a single audience member, was moved to tears, reminded of a joyful memory or compelled to laugh hysterically, the performance was a success.”

probably the cats. So yeah, the film is basically a regurgitation of common horror movie cliches, but those would be forgivable if the film succeeded in being scary. Too bad it doesn’t. The film failed to get me to care about this family, so the spooky paranormal occurrences throughout had little effect on me. It doesn’t help that all the performances are lackluster. I think the only coaching the director offered was this: The bigger your eyes are, the more frightened your character is. Not to mention that 90 percent of the big scary moments occur in the film’s trailer, so whatever impact was there initially is eliminated. There was nothing in the movie that made it any different than the other horror movies being released from the usual Hollywood assembly line. Therefore, the film

is just a waste of time. When the moments that are supposed to be the most disturbing and shocking end up being unintentionally hilarious, something is not right (go ahead and see for yourself, most of these moments are in the trailer). A common argument against me when I debate horror movies with people is that I take them too seriously, and that I should just go along for the ride. I think that mindset is more useful when applied to comedies, not horror. In order for a movie to genuinely frighten me, I have to care about what’s going on; I need to be drawn in somehow or else I’ll lose all interest. I can’t see how a viewer can be affected by something when they are just “along for the ride.” Plus, with a movie this lousy, I find it hard to believe that a die-hard horror movie fan can find much to defend, but I guess you’ll have to ask one to find that out for sure.

Denver snaps UNI’s 6-game winning streak in 63-57 victory BRAD EILERS

Sports Editor

After jumping out to an early 16-2 lead in the opening five minutes of action, the University of Northern Iowa men’s basketball team was outscored by the University of Denver Pioneers 30-9 over the final 15 minutes of the first half. The Panthers trailed the Pioneers 32-25 at halftime and were never able to fully dig themselves out of the hole in the second half, falling 63-57 as part of the Ramada Worldwide BracketBusters event. The Panthers (17-12) clawed their way back to within one point at 53-52 on a Deon Mitchell layup with 2:25 remaining in the game, which was the closest UNI would get the rest of the way. UNI senior Marc Sonnen missed a goahead 3-pointer with just 35 seconds remaining, but he appeared to be fouled on the shot. However, no foul was called, and UNI head coach Ben Jacobson received a technical foul, the sixth of his career, for arguing with the officials. “Not that I’ve been around forever, but I have enough experience in my seventh year,” said Jacobson. “Ben Jacobson of year one or year two maybe would have reacted that way. That’s a mistake, and that cost us a possession at an important time of the game. And that won’t happen again. It gave (Denver) an extra possession with 35 seconds left, so those two

points were big.” When asked if he was fouled on his last minute 3-point attempt, Sonnen said, “I believe so. The refs thought differently, and that’s their choice. You have to live with that and move on.” Denver (18-8) sealed the victory with four made free throws down the stretch. The loss snapped UNI’s six-game winning streak. Despite the loss, UNI is still in the same position they were heading into Saturday night’s game. The Panthers sit at third place in the Missouri Valley Conference standings and likely need to win the MVC Tournament in two weeks to have any shot at making the NCAA Tournament. The Panthers were led in scoring by sophomore forward Seth Tuttle, who finished the game with 18 points, five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal. Sonnen was the only other Panther to join Tuttle in double figures, finishing with 12 points. Anthony James, Jake Koch and Mitchell finished with eight points apiece. James left the game with 13 minutes remaining in the game with what Jacobson called a deep thigh bruise. Jacobson said James should be back to practice this week and is hopeful that he will be ready for Wednesday night’s MVC game against the Southern Illinois University Salukis (12-16, 4-12 MVC) in Carbondale, Ill. Wednesday’s game tips off at 7 p.m.

The University of Northern Iowa women’s basketball team dropped two games this week, falling at home to the Creighton University Bluejays 73-66 Thursday night and 82-67 to the Drake University Bulldogs Saturday afternoon. The Panthers struggled to defend the 3-point line in the first half of both games as the Bluejays connected on 7-of-11 3-pointers while the Bulldogs went 8-for-11 from long range. The Bluejays shot 52 percent in the first half while the Panthers shot 46 percent and made six 3-pointers of their own. Creighton led 43-37 at halftime. However, the second half was a different story as the Panthers (12-14, 7-7 MVC)

struggled from beyond the arc, going 0-for-8. The Bluejays went 4-for-17 on 3-pointers in the second half, which was the difference in the game. Creighton junior Sarah Nelson tallied a game-high 19 points and collected eight rebounds on the night. UNI sophomore Brittni Donaldson scored a teamhigh 14 points off the bench for the Panthers. Redshirt senior Jacqui Kalin scored 13. The Panthers continued to struggle from behind the arc Saturday against the Bulldogs. UNI shot 40 percent from the field and went 5-for-23 from long range while Drake shot 58 percent for the game and made 13 3-point attempts. The Bulldogs built their lead in the first half by way < See BASKETBALL, page 8


Say goodbye to UNI’s NCAA Tournament at-large chances JAKE BEMIS

Sports Columnist

Porky Pig from the “Looney Tunes” may have the best description for the University of Northern Iowa men’s basketball season. I could just imagine Porky sticking his head out after the tough loss to the University of Denver on Saturday night and saying, “uh-be-duh-la-be-duh-la-be that’s all folks!” UNI had a real shot at picking up an at-large bid to enter the NCAA Tournament, but there was one key rule: the Panthers had to win out the rest of the regular season. Had they done so, UNI would have finished the reg-

ular season on a nine-game winning streak. If you add a win or two in the Missouri Valley Conference, we may have seen UNI’s name pop up during Selection Sunday. Instead, it’s going to take an MVC Tournament championship to make it back to the big dance. If I had to put odds on UNI’s at-large chances, I’d give them a slim 5 percent chance of making it to the NCAA Tournament without an automatic bid. This is only because UNI remains one game behind Creighton University for second place in the MVC. If the Panthers can overtake that second-place spot < See GOODBYE, page 8

of the 3-pointers. Drake took advantage of UNI’s loose defense and hit four straight 3-pointers to take a 48-39 lead at halftime. “I didn’t think we did a very good job of paying attention to the scouting report,” said UNI head coach Tanya Warren. “When you do not do

those things and you allow a team to get into a rhythm, they are going to be very hard to defend.” Down 10 points and with the momentum up for grabs in the second half, UNI redshirt freshman Stephanie Davison’s layup was taken away after she was called for the offensive foul with less than eight minutes to play. “It changed the whole complexion of the game and that is all I will say


about that,” said Warren. “We had the momentum and it was snatched from us. It quickly swung back to Drake’s side.” DU sophomore Kyndal Clark’s back-to-back 3-pointers sparked a 15-4 Bulldog run over a span of four minutes, which extended the Drake lead to 24 points at 82-58 with just 2:49 remaining. Clark filled the stat sheet as she

scored 23 points while adding eight assists and six rebounds. Kalin led the Panthers in scoring with 25 points while freshman Hannah Schonhardt added 14. The Panthers will look to get back in the win column Friday night as they travel to Evansville, Ind., to take on the University of Evansville Purple Aces at 7 p.m.

by the end of the regular season, it may be tough to not have a legitimate argument for UNI to enter the field of 68. I have heard all season about how great Creighton is. Creighton is nearly a lock to make the NCAA Tournament. So it makes sense for the Panthers to have a good shot at the tournament if they sit ahead of the Bluejays in the final conference standings. But when it comes to March Madness, you can throw sense right out the window. Therefore, in my mind, UNI still only has a 5 percent chance at an atlarge bid. What really matters to Panther fans is the MVC Tournament that takes place in St. Louis March 7-10. The Panthers will not be playing a Thursday game, which is very helpful. UNI only has to win three games

in three days to win the tournament and receive the automatic bid for the NCAA Tournament. It’s not a long shot considering UNI has reeled off six straight conference wins and the Panthers could have had 10 wins in a row if it wasn’t for a mere 33.3 seconds in a two-game stretch that gave UNI two losses to Indiana State University and the University of Evansville. So sit back and relax, Panther fans. You deserve a break after this long, grueling season. It seems that, while every game matters, the next two don’t matter quite as much. UNI likely isn’t getting an at-large bid no matter how bad we all want it. Start packing your bags and booking your hotel rooms. The Panthers are going to need you when they begin play in the MVC Tournament on March 8 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
