Gates paid more than $100k to speak ISAAC WRIGHT

Assigning Editor


Former U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates was paid $108,000 for an upcoming UNT speech, in which he is expected to discuss how the world has changed since 9/11. Gates’ speech will take place at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 7

at the UNT Coliseum and is one in a week full of events in memoriam to the events of 9/11. Blake Windham, president of the Student Government Association, said the cost of bringing Gates to campus is understandable considering the stature of the speaker. “He is the most decorated secre-

tary of defense in U.S. history,” Windham said. “He served with both [political] parties. When students see what a remarkable man he is, they’ll see the cost was well worth it.” Gates served under both former President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama before resigning earlier this year.

Following a Freedom of Information Act request, UNT revealed Gates would be paid the $108,000 fee for his presentation, $33,500 of which was allocated to travel costs. UNT officials were unable to provide information about how Gates will travel to Texas for the speech.

Gates’ speech is part of the Distinguished Lecture Series, a program that has brought many well-known names to the Denton campus to speak, including Bush and Vicente Fox, for mer president of Mexico.

A group of Denton cyclists is hoping that the $192,000 of Denton’s budget money that has yet to be allocated will go to improving roads. The money could potentially go to several different Denton programs. Howa rd Draper sa id he hopes t he sur plus money will be allocated toward the city’s mobility plan, which has a bike component. Draper, who is the editor of Bike Denton, a news blog of the Denton biking community, said the last mobility plan was updated in 1999, meant for the years 1999 to 2020. “In terms of bike stuf f, [the city has] basically done not h i ng.

The bike plan is very large in scope and is basically an update to t he pedest r ia n bike component of the city’s mobility plan, Draper said.

With the beginning of this fall semester, students may be awa re of t he const r uction affecting traffic on and near campus. There will be construction in the following week s at t h ree poi nt s i n t he nor t her n, wester n a nd sout her n por t ions of campus. Road qua lit y in t he cit y of Denton is represented by an Overall Condition Index, which is rated on a scale of 0 to 100. Currently, the OCI in Denton stands at about 63 for most roads, said Keith Gabbard, superintendent of streets drainage and traffic. About 20 percent of the city’s roads are between 0 and 30 or are in a very poor condition. Gabbard said the biggest problem Denton has is that r oa d s a r e i n ba d s h a p e because of the lack of money to support the old roads. “We have the same streets from when we had a population of 40,000 in 1980 up to about 120,000 in 2011,” he said. T he cit y is cu r rent ly s p end i n g $ 5 m i l l ion on roads, he said, and in order to achieve an OCI of 69, the city needs to be spending $15 million. A bond sa le by a public f ig ure in 2007 is current ly f u nd i n g t he c it y ’s r o a d construction, and the next bond sale w ill probably be in 2014 because of the slow economy. He added that the city is also currently undergoing its biggest road project on Jagoe Street between Hickory and Scripture streets.

“The main thing we have going on around campus is currently on Jagoe Street.”

Con st r uc t ion here w i l l continue for about 30 to 45 days, Gabbard said. “The main thing we have going on around campus is currently on Jagoe Street, and water divisions is currently replacing the water main,” Gabbard said. “Once we get through we will move on to electricity.” P r iv ate cont rac tors a re also doing construction on Hickory Street between Fry and Welch. The city of Denton’s website also shows that there will be construction happening on campus at Avenue A between the intersections of Highland and Maple. Gabbard said efforts to alleviate traffic around UNT have been made in Denton County Transit Authority’s completion of the A-train as well as the city’s plan to build more bike lanes. Recent t ra f f ic problems around campus may also be att ributed to t he block ing of f of t he v isitor pa rk i ng lot across from the General Academic Building.

Golden Triangle Mall receives multi-million dollar makeover DAISY SILOS Staff Writer

Looking to make a comeback after filling for bankruptcy a year ago, the Golden Triangle Mall hopes to spring back to life with various renovations that will include new stores and restaurants. Mall officials said they hope renovations will attract new businesses that have been going to malls in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. General manager of the Golden Triangle mall Matt Ludemann said shoppers can expect a substantial change that’s been long overdue. The city of Denton approved $9.5 million for the renovation as part of an economic development agreement, Ludemann said. With the addition of money from investors, the budget of the project has reached $60 million.

“Several companies have taken stabs trying to renovate the asset here, but at this point Cencor, Weitzman and the MGHerring Group have pulled it together and are going to make it happen for the property,” he said. “It’s something that’s been needed for several years.” It x ia Acevedo, a biolog y junior, said she would love to see a Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe open in Denton. “I’ve been wishing since freshman year for these stores to pop up,” she said. “It’d be nice to just drive down the street to shop at the mall instead of having to drive to Galleria in Dallas.” Not only potential shoppers are looking forward to the renovation.

City surplus to be used for ‘needed projects’ Continued from Page 1 Radio, television and film sophomore Joshua Serrano lives off campus and prefers to bike to class, but believes that roads near campus need improvement, he said. “[The roads are] either good or bad. There’s a lot of roads over by where they’re doing construction, and further down by Alice [Street], where there are pot holes everywhere,” Serrano said. “It’s bad for your bike.” Recent economic hardships have caused the city to delay some projects even though they need to be done, Mayor Mark Burroughs said. Burroughs added that he recognizes the need for bike lanes because the city wants to encourage residents to use alternative methods of transportation instead of driving cars.

“There are numerous projects, large and small, that we have kept putting off year after year, and they’re needed.”

—Mark Burroughs Denton mayor

“There are numerous projects, large and small, that we have kept putting off year after year, and they’re needed,” he said. “We know that they’re needed, but we haven’t had the money to do them. What was called a ‘surplus’ is not that at all. So the question is, ‘where do we use those funds?’” The city recently conducted a citywide determination of road conditions. It was deter-

mined that $9-$10 million per year would need to be spent on the roads for maintenance. The city’s entire budget is $90 million, $3 million of which currently goes into road maintenance, Burroughs said. The city is projecting to increase road funding to $6 million in the near future. “That’s still behind, but it’s a whole lot better than we’ve ever done,” Burroughs said.


More than 70 different bikes and bike parts take up space at Denton’s community bike shop Querencia. Querencia is an all-volunteer nonprofit community bike shop located at 411 E. Sycamore St. The volunteers help residents fix their own bikes.

Marketing department collaborates with University of Ghana A LEX M ACON

Senior Staff Writer UNT will host faculty from the University of Ghana this month in an effort to expose students in the College of Business to a different cultural perspective. Robert E. Hinson, head of the department of marketing and customer management at the University of Ghana, will speak to UNT marketing students Wednesday about political marketing in Ghana. He said students from UNT and UG could learn a lot from each other.

GRAPHIC COURTESY OF CIA FACTBOOK “We are very excited to have an opportunity to share what we know,” Hinson said. “We also have

eager students in Ghana willing to bounce around ideas.” Hinson said the University

of Ghana had one of the most vibrant exchange student programs in West Africa, hosting students from around the world and encouraging the sharing of ideas across national and cultural lines. “One country’s research is not as exciting as three or four countries’ research,” Hinson said. Accord ing to UNT International’s website, UNT has more than 2,600 international students from 121 countries. Charles Blankson of the marketing faculty reached out to UG in late 2008 with the inten-

tion of setting up a travel abroad program to Ghana. Blankson, who is originally from Ghana, visited UG in 2009, giving a lecture and signing a Memorandum of Understanding, promising increased collaboration between the two universities. Blankson said while the initial agreement was between marketing departments, administration officials at UNT supported closer collaboration and a student exchange program with UG. Hinson said he noticed a recent push in Western countries to

give students a better multicultural perspective, a sentiment Blankson echoed. “Increasingly students are getting acquainted with other countries, but there’s a long way to go,” Blankson said. “I tell my students no country’s an island.” Prince Kodua, a lecturer and Ph.D. student at UG, will speak to classes next week on using marketing to alleviate poverty and the rise of tourism to Ghana. “You need to want to empower people to create their own business,” Kodua said.

UNT, TxDOT cooperate with city Continued from Page 1 This is due to an estimated year-and-a-half long construction project which involves the replacement of various air conditioning units around campus, according to Beeny Lozano, supervisor of construction for Huss and Mitchell Inc. Future plans include building Mayhill Road between U.S. 380 to Interstate Highway 35 as well as new bike lanes around the city to accommodate bike commuters to and from campus.

UNT and TxDOT involvement Though many of the roads needing construction border UNT’s campus, there isn’t much for school officials to do except provide support. “We don’t have much influence on city road construction,”


Workers toil with rebar and concrete at the Fry Street development Monday night. The area is one of many near campus that is currently under construction. said Charles Jackson, assistant vice president for facilities and construction. “We lobby with the city and make sure they have our votes.” The most construction that school funding goes toward is projects related to campus. “Some of our sidewalk work between Bruce Hall and the

Chemistry Building was schoolfunded,” Jackson said. This was because of a need for better access for those in wheelchairs, he said. In addition to the university’s involvement with the city of Denton, there is communication with the Texas Department of Transportation on issues of

construction. “We worked with TxDOT on the designing of the highway,” Jackson said. “We had nothing to do with the funding itself.” The sphere of financial support from TxDOT doesn’t cover costs for Denton city roads, either. “Essentially, the city is responsible for funding city roads,” said Cynthia Northrop White, public information office supervisor for the TxDOT Dallas District. “It is very rare that we will get involved in city street construction.” However, in the current budget plans for 2011, TxDOT is funding construction on several of Denton’s surrounding roads including U.S. 377, U.S. 380 and I-35E. “Most times we go out into the community and see what needs to be done,” White said. For those interested in TxDOT’s road construction plans, public meetings are held for community input. Information can be found on its website,

Libyan conflict contributes to gas price fluctuation MELISSA R ATLEY Staff Writer

The continued economic downturn has affected every area of the economy. From crude oil to food prices, there seemed to be no immediate relief in sight. However, gas prices have steadily dropped from the nationa l average of $4 to around $3.60 since Memorial Day, according to AAA Daily Fuel Gauge reports released Monday. “The wide unrest in the Midd le East g ives i nvestors a psychotic reaction, and it makes things hard to predict,” said Idean Salehyan of the political science faculty. “Before the flare-ups started, there were issues with prices. And fuel affects everything. They aren’t out of the woods yet [with the conflict], but they are progressing in the right direction.” While Libyan oil product ion on ly a f fects a sma l l percentage of the world, the continuing push for democracy in the Middle East as a whole is making investors nervous, Salehyan said. “There is a commodit y market for fuel,” said Michael McPherson of the economics faculty. “Even with disruptions in the Middle East, the economy is slowly growing.” Even with fuel prices slowly decreasing, people may not necessarily be in a better place financially, McPherson said. “People will still expend their budget on gas, which

helps the economy, but prices are still historically high. And gas will only get more expensive in the next few years,” he said. Denton’s economy is affected by the price f luctuations as well. Gas and oil prices contribute to the economy in that when gas prices go up, the price of business goes up, said

“Even with disruptions in the Middle East, the economy is slowly growing.”

Karen Dickson, v ice president of economic development at the Denton Chamber of Commerce. “Where trucks are used for shipping purposes, shipping costs increase. But people are still doing business in all aspects,” said Kim Phillips, vice president of the Denton Convent ion a nd V i sitor s Bureau. Even in the local tourism market, there has been consistency in the slow economic recovery. People may stay closer to home or drive shorter distances, but they still need to get where they’re going and will adjust


Cody Peck, a film and communications junior, fills his truck at QuikTrip on Fort Worth Drive. Gas prices are predicted to fall, which is good news to drivers like Peck, who paid nearly $80 to fill up. accordingly, Phillips said. “You have to really ask yourself, ‘Do you really stop going places?’” she said. Commuter students at UNT are finding other options to get to class and curb the expense of gas, with the use of bikes and the new A-train service, which connects multiple cities from Carrollton to Denton. “I commute from Carrollton daily, so the train helps with beating the traffic and saves me money,” journalism junior Taylor Berrier said.

Former defense secretary to speak on policy since 9/11 Continued from page 1 George W. Bush, who spoke at UNT last year, received $100,000 for his appearance on the UNT campus. Because Gates understands the events of 9/11 and the response of the U.S. government, some students are torn about whether or not the cost is justified and if it will bring g reater d ist inct ion to t he university. A n a Vasquez, a psycholog y f reshma n, said she was w it h her fa m i ly i n Me x ic o w h e n s h e ROBERT f i rst hea rd GATES about 9/11 and remembered t he images play ing across t he T V, but wasn’t able to completely process t he gravity of the event. Vasquez said she couldn’t decide if Gates’ contract was too large or not. “T hat mone y c ou ld go tow a rd s omet h i ng el s e,” Vasquez sa id. “But, he’s a ver y importa nt person, so that makes it hard to decide. Nor ma l ly, I’d say it’s too much.” Hope Garcia, director of st udent a f f a i r s ad m i n i stration, said Gates was just one of a number of hig hprof ile f ig ures t he univer-

sity approached to speak to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11. Garcia said they tried to sign former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani for the event, but said Giuliani declined the invitation. “He said he did not feel comfortable being anywhere but New York for September 11,” Garcia said.

Tickets for Gates’ speech can be purchased at the information desk in the University Union. Students can receive one ticket for free with their st udent ID ca rd a nd ca n purchase additional tickets for $15. General admission tickets are $25 and floor-level tickets can be purchased for $40.

Veganism means more than new diet to students BRITTNI BARNETT Senior Staff Writer


Speech language pathology junior Julie Rulla climbs the rock wall in the Pohl Recreation Center on Monday. The center is charging no fees to climb the wall until Sept. 3.

Attendance climbs with nocharge group exercise classes M ARLENE GONZALEZ Staff Writer

A roomful of students carries out the rhythm of Latin beats during a long dance session. They’re short of breath and sweaty. When the songs end, they won’t head over to the bar or stand in the recesses of a nightclub and chat. They’ll file out of their classroom and into the Pohl Recreation Center. The class, Zumba, which combines aerobics with Latin dances, is among the many group exercise classes offered free of charge at the Rec Center between August 28 and Sept. 3. The instructor-led classes usually last about an hour, and some of them are offered throughout the semester free of additional charge, while others cost a fee. Among the classes are popular workouts such as Pilates, yoga and kickboxing. Angela McGuire, assistant director of recreational sports, said around 500 students went to the Rec Center from August 22-28. “I think we have a lot of students come by; after 4 p.m. every piece of equipment is being used,” McGuire said.

She said Zumba and afternoon sessions in steam rooms are popular group sessions the students have taken advantage of. McGuire expects Cycle Bikes, one of the classes added last Thursday, to be a hit as well. Kirby McDonald, a biology senior, has tried the Zumba and Cardio Sculpting classes, and said most classes she has attended have been full. “I think it’s probably a good mix. The students who know about them take advantage and those who don’t unfortunately miss out on them,” McDonald said. The classes are normally $3 per session with some being offered at no additional charge to students all year long. Canoeing, camping, kayaking, star gazing and outdoor rock climbing are some of the adventure trips the Outdoor Pursuits Center offers, which is located on the first floor of the Rec Center. Anna Pechenina, a political science graduate student and employee at the Outdoor Pursuits Center, said they usually get about 10 people

per day wanting to rock climb or take trips outside of the university. “Our goal is to educate them to feel competent to go outdoors and not feel limited, to make sure they’re comfortable,” Pechenina said. Pechenina said people sign up for free clinics but don’t show up when the time comes. These clinics are classes that prepare students in the area they are interested in. They learn the basics and are provided with information they need to be ready in the wilderness. “Attendance is just bad. I think it’s because they’re free [classes],” she said. Pechenina added that tent rentals are the exception at the Outdoor Pursuits Center. A four-person tent can be rented out for a weekend at the rate of $16. Cooking supplies and climbing gear are available to rent as well. Introductory rock climbing classes usually cost $10 for two hours, but during the first week of classes, finals week, and a few other dates (Sept.12, Oct.10 and Nov.14) learning the ropes to this activity is free.

Not all the visitors at the campus vegan dining hall, Mean Greens, will be vegan. Others won’t even know what vegan means. That was the case for biology freshman C.J. Melton when he changed his diet to vegan sta nda rds t wo a nd a ha lf years ago. Melton soon realized veganism encompassed more than just what he ate, and he soon embraced the fact that he does not contribute to things he does not support, such as the way animals are treated in captiv it y and at processing plants. “It just ma kes me feel better,” he said. “Even though those things are still going on, I am not responsible for the demand of them.” Aside from food, manufacturers make everyday products for vegan enthusiasts. Vegan Freak, a store on Elm Street, sells items such as vegan-friendly cleaning products and vegan soccer balls, for example. WeB u F i nd le y- C a r r ol l , whose fat her ow ns Vega n Freak, has maintained a meatless diet most of his life, and has spent about nine of those years as a vegan. Findley-Carroll said when it comes to veganism, a lot is left up to the individual to decide how he or she wants to live the lifest yle, which results in varying degrees of veganism. “It’s impossible to be fully vegan in America,” FindleyCarroll said. Both Findley-Carroll and Melton said the new vegandining hall is a great option to offer students. “It’s so incredible, and it’s cheap,” Findley-Carroll said. “A meal like that would easily go for $10 or $12 normally.” Although the new dining hall has sparked a conversation about the vegan lifestyle, Findley-Carroll said there is still a lack of public knowledge on the subject. “Ever yone t h i n k s t h at vegans are like the vegans you see on TV,” Melton said. “The ones that throw red paint on people for wearing fur. I’m not going to tell someone how they should live their life.” Aside from the dining hall, vegan enthusiasts find food at other local locations, such a s t he Cupboa rd Nat u ra l Foods.

“We have tons and tons of vegan food,” said Katy Durkin, a recreation and leisure studies junior and Cupboard Natural Foods employee. “We have this vegan chocolate pudding that is better than normal pudding; it tastes like chocolate mousse.” Durkin said that since she is lactose intolerant, she eats a lot of vegan deserts. Some of the options the Cupboard Café provides include vegan cookies, cakes and brownies. Carl Soloman, who works in the Cupboard Café, has been a vegan for a year and was

a vegetarian for four years before that. “It ’s def i n itely a g reat place for someone like me to work,” he sa id. “Since becoming a vega n I have become more aware of the impact of what I’m doing in my life.” Although trying to maintain a vegan lifestyle can sometimes be expensive, Melton said that once you go vegan you find a way to continue living that way. “It’s really a way of life now,” he said. “I really can’t see myself as not vegan.”

Denton mall gets improved look, interior Continued from Page 1 Heather Carter, salesperson at Sold in 168, looks forward to seeing what changes the multimillion-dollar budget will bring. “You should have a whole new

feel to the Golden Triangle Mall,” she said. “The mall has changed a lot throughout the years, but I would love to see it fill up with more stores and more restaurants; that way the customers can window shop and eat all in a comfortable environment,”

No new stores have yet signed on to open next fall, Ludemann said, but negotiations are on going. Ludemann said he’s expecting the majority of current retailers to stay after the renovation. “They may have a new look or

a remodeled store, but shoppers can expect their favorite stores to stick around,” he said. Among existing stores, one that’s already started on its renovation is Victoria’s Secret. “They’re going to open up with a new brand new look, a fresh store that we’re very excited about,” Ludemann said. He declined to release the names of any new stores that will be unveiled upon completion of the renovations. “We don’t typically announce what shoppers can expect until construction begins on site,” he said. Dallas Observer blogger, Robert Wilonsky reported on his blog “Unfair Park” that a deal is being worked out to get an In-N-Out Burger added to the mall. Carter said she hopes the mall will keep its family-friendly atmosphere that it’s maintained for years. “I grew up in this area, and I love this type of setting where you’re not outside sweating and families can come to have a good time,” she said.

UNT thrives in record-breaking weekend at home Soccer team steamrolls TSU and Grambling

Inside the Numbers Senior forward Nikki Crocco doubled her career scoring total Sunday, notching three goals in less than four minutes.


Senior Staff Writer A pair of hat tricks was the catalyst that led the Mean Green women’s soccer team to overpowering wins over Texas Southern and Grambling State last weekend, as it prepped itself for SMU this Friday. UNT outscored its opponents 16-0 in the two games, with seven of its players finding the back of the net.

The Mean Green had 18 offside penalties compared to Grambling’s zero. UNT outshot its opponents 63-8 in the two contests.

Texas Southern U N T ( 2 - 0 -1) s t a r t e d the weekend off in dominant fashion with a 5-0 win over Texas Southern (0-1-0) Friday. Junior for ward Michelle Young led the Mean Green of fense w it h t hree goa ls, notching her first hat trick at UNT. “The first game [against Oral Roberts], I was struggling a little bit with my shots and I was finally able to get it down and put a couple into the back of the net,” Young said. Young scored two of her three goals in the first half. The other first half goal came off the foot of junior forward Katelyn

Grambling State (0-1-0). UNT’s goal total was the most ever by a team at the Mean Green Soccer Complex. Senior forward Nikki Crocco caught fire, notching her first career hat trick with three goals

in the span of three and a half minutes. “It felt really good, actually,” Crocco said. “I was just in the right place at the right time.” Senior midfielder Julie Lackey, in her second game back in the

lineup since returning from a hip pointer, got the scoring started early with a goal in the second minute. “It’s huge,” head coach John Hedlund said of Lackey’s and Hodges’ returns. “They’re starters and we want to get them back out on the field because they’re two of the best players on this team.” Lackey stayed aggressive, scoring in the ninth minute on an assist from Young, who had three assists and a goal. Senior midf ielder Ca rly McDowell added t wo first ha lf goa ls to give UNT a commanding 4-0 lead at halftime. UNT returns to action when it hosts SMU at 7 p.m. Friday.

UNT newcomers make their presence felt early BRETT MEDEIROS Staff Writer

The UNT volleyball team (2-1) took two of three matches at the Lamar Tournament this weekend, defeating a Lamar team that has historically given it trouble and splitting games against two teams it rarely faces.

Lamar The Mean Green earned its fourth win in 20 matches against Lamar, defeating the Cardinals in four sets 3-1 Friday. “To me it’s just us trying to play the best volleyball,” head coach Ken Murczek said. “The first match of the season is always one you cross your fingers on ’cause you never know what to expect. ” After posting a kill percentage of 16 in the first set, the Mean Green more than doubled its total with a 32.5 kill percentage in the final set. Freshman outside hitter Eboni Godfrey and sophomore middle blocker Courtney Windham led the team with 14 kills apiece. “I was extremely nervous,” Godfrey said. “All the other girls just help so much and they’re so encouraging to where you barely feel any nerves at all.” The play of the game came in the second set when the ball hit Godfrey in the cheek and UNT turned the dig into a Mean Green

point to secure an 11-10 lead. Godfrey was not hurt in the play and jumped right back into the match.

Houston Baptist A f ter a strong show ing against Lamar, UNT fell to the Houston Baptist University Huskies 3-1. Taking the match’s first set, the Mean Green then dropped three straight sets en route to the loss “We had a little bit of communication issues and probably just a little bit of everything,” senior middle blocker Melanie Boykins said. “We didn’t do what we needed to do on our side of the net.” A big contributor to the loss was UNT’s inability to put points on the board consistently, as UNT had a total kill percentage of .32. “It was a highly competitive match and I thought we would be OK, but we had just way too many errors,” Murczek said. “All the other team really had to do was just stand there.” The match was the first meeting between the Mean Green and the Huskies since 1988.

With the dawn of a new age for UNT football approaching there is a tendency to develop high hopes for the new-look Mean Green, but any dreams of glory should be doused with a splash of reality. UNT’s opening stretch of five games is as treacherous as swimming in shark-infested waters or sitting through a “High School Musical” marathon. However, the games will act as a litmus test for the Mean Green as it adapts to new head coach Dan McCarney’s scheme and will affect the outcome of the team’s last seven contests.

1. Florida International UNT opens the season on the road when it travels to Miami, Fla., to face Florida International on Thursday, Sept. 1. While the Mean Green finished seventh in the Sun Belt Conference in 2010, the Panthers finished as the Sun Belt champions. FIU played in its first bowl game and defeated Toledo 34-32 at the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl in Detroit. FIU was picked in the preseason coaches’ poll to repeat as champion and had six players – including wide receiver and return specialist T.Y. Hilton twice – on the preseason All-Sun

2. Houston The Mean Green will host the Cougars in the debut of Apogee Stadium. Houston went 5-7 in 2010 after losing all-everything quarterback Case Keenum to a knee injury in the third game. The NCAA granted Keenum a sixth year of eligibility in January. Last season saw an end to Houston’s streak of five consecutive bowl games. Bringing back their experienced leader and quarterback, the Cougars will look to post a winning record in 2011.

3. Alabama UNT will travel to Tuscaloosa, Ala., Sept. 17 to play in college football’s version of David and Goliath. Alabama went 10-3 and walloped Michigan State 49-7 in last year’s Citrus Bowl. The Crimson Tide has seven offensive and nine defensive starters returning in 2011. Perhaps it’s also worth mentioning that the Tide is two years removed from a national title. Two of the best running backs in the country will be on display – UNT’s Lance Dunbar and Alabama’s Trent Richardson.

4. Indiana UNT’s second home game will take place Saturday, Sept. 24 against Indiana.

Paul Bottoni The Hoosiers fired head coach Bill Lynch following the 2010 season after finishing with a 5-7 record. The Big-10 Conference school hired Oklahoma Sooners offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson to take over in December 2010. Like UNT, Indiana will be adjusting to a new coach and new scheme, and represents the Mean Green’s best chance for a victory in the five-game stretch.

5. Tulsa UNT’s five-game gauntlet ends when the Mean Green visits Tulsa to face the Golden Hurricane. Tulsa tallied a 10-3 record in 2010 and defeated the University of Hawaii 62-35 in the Hawaii Bowl. Leading Tulsa on the field will be senior quarterback G.J. Kinne, who passed for more than 3,000 yards and 31 touchdowns. If UNT can win two of the five games, mark it down as a success – but don’t be surprised if things don’t play out like a Hollywood script.

Thompson named UNT starting quarterback Brief

against the Texas Southern University Tigers. The Mean Green won in three straight sets 3-0. “I was really proud of the girls to be able to turn around and take this match,” Murczek said. “Everyone really came through.” UNT broke an 8-year-old school record with an overall hitting percentage of .527 against TSU, overtaking the previous record of .493. The Mean Green is now 3-0 all time against the Tigers. UNT returns to the court for its first home match of the season Tuesday against UT-Arlington.

Belt Conference Team. UNT had two – running back Lance Dunbar and offensive lineman Matt Tomlinson.

SEAN GORMAN Sports Editor

Speaking at his first press conference of the season, UNT head football coach Dan McCarney revealed the new leader of the Mean Green offense, naming redshirt sophomore Derek Thompson as the team’s starting quarterback. The Glen Rose native beat out sophomore transfer Brent Osborn and freshman Andrew McNulty for the position. “No que st ion he’ l l [Thompson] start Thursday night. He had a good camp, a consistent camp, and I think a lot of guys believe in him,” McCarney said. “You see the respect I think he’s garnered

throughout camp as we began August 4.” McCarney said Thompson’s leadership set him apart in a close quarterback competition. Thompson played in three games and started one last year before suffering a broken leg in UNT’s third game that ended his season. Last season Thompson was part of UNT’s quarterback carousel, which also included Nathan Tune, Riley Dodge and Chase Baine.

The other 2010 UNT q u a r t e rbacks have each gone in a different direction – Tune gradu- DEREK ated, Dodge THOMPSON transferred to McNeese State and Baine was moved to wide receiver. UNT will follow Thompson’s lead Thursday when it visits Miami for its first game against Florida International.

Ron Paul wrongly ignored by media

New test lacks STAAR power Editorial This incoming class of high school freshman will no longer dread taking the Texas Assessments of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) test. The TAKS test, which was the TAAS test, will now be known as the STAAR test, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness. In an attempt to put a greater emphasis on rigor in exit-level testing, the test forces students to achieve a cumulative passing score out of 12 end-of-course exams in order to graduate. Additionally, test scores will now count toward 15 percent of their final grade. While there are certainly benefits that come from increasing the rigor in such a manner, the Editorial Board is unsure if the STAAR will be effective if it is just a more frequent TAKS test. With 12 tests per academic calendar, students will bear less stress on their shoulders to do well on one single test. Spreading the tests throughout the semester will also present students with the opportunity to make up where he or she fell might have fallen short in previous tests. Schools and school districts alike will have less of an incentive to “push out,” expel and suspend, troubled students as a way to raise school’s test scores. Now, teachers will have the chance to make any necessary changes to their teaching methods to help struggling students instead of helping their students cheat as in the case of the three teachers from Dallas ISD who solved math problems for students in 2005. There’s a problem with introducing a more rigorous TAKS test when the TAKS test didn’t work in the first place. A report on ACT scores showed Texas high school graduates who took the ACT test this year lacked the skills to pass college-level courses in math, reading and science – three of the categories the TAKS test currently measures. The lack of clarity on the STAAR’s content raises concerns with the Editorial Board on whether teachers will be teaching students to prepare them for the exam, or if the exam will dictate what educators teach. The change in exams could be a step away from the trend of teaching to the test like many Texans have criticized. However, if educators make the STAAR the deciding factor and teach to the exam, students will continue to learn test-taking strategies rather than how to master concepts and skills. If the STAAR is supposed to determine how prepared our students are to graduate, it would be a disservice to them for the test to do anything but just that, otherwise the next standardized test that the legislature passes may as well be known as the Cumulative Readiness Assessment Probe.

The bulk of Republican primaries known as “Super Tuesday” are about five months away, and we have yet to witness any competition between the top candidates. During the last Republican presidential debate, the candidates were not the topic of discussion, but moreover the never-ending criticism of the Obama administration. The only person to not rip into the f lesh of the feeding frenzy was probably the least discussed candidate of them all, our own Texas congressman, Ron Paul. Ron Paul, who is a favorite among young voters, has been routinely ignored by both sides of the political news spectrum. This is most likely because the majority of Ron Paul supporters —people aging from 18 to 34 — are the smallest viewing demographic for Fox News, MSNBC and CNN. I might be stating the obvious, but this really shows how the supposedly objective news industry is putting profit before professionalism. Ron Paul doesn’t fit comfort-

ably in either ideological camp, either. MSNBC isn’t going to give him any support because he has an “R” next to his name, as well as his support for the repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Fox News sure isn’t inclined to give him any compliments because he is the most direct threat to mainstream Republicans and also because of his Libertarian sentiments. A lthough I don’t openly support any candidate at the moment, I would like to point out that Washington has been in a stalemate since the 2010 general elections. Our leaders have been uncompromising in their ideological battles, which have further divided politicians and citizens alike, causing little to be done in decreasing our irresponsible spending, or in reducing our inconceivable debt. W hat Ron Paul does is present the opportunity for voters to say, “We want something different.” He is the oddball of the bunch who has

the potential to reboot our current political atmosphere by disrupting the monopoly mainstream politicians have in our democratic process. The most vital tool that Ron Paul possesses is the young vote. While he may not be getting any younger, neither is his opposition. Yet Congressman Paul’s biggest hurdle will be exposure, getting his name out there to voters both new and old, and so far the network news stations have been unable to sell on Ron Paul’s low-key image. The Republican Primaries are a test for the evolution of the digital age. Fringe media and segmentation has been on the rise and doesn’t seem to be coming to a halt. If Ron Paul has any chance of becoming the Republican nominee he needs to capitalize on these untapped markets that hold huge reserves of independent voters. Fortunately, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert —who represent the rise of unconventional news media — have

come to Ron Paul’s defense and pointed out the blatant neglect of the congressman by the 24-hour news networks. W h i le t he major it y of Republican presidential candidates focus on the executive power grab by attempting to further taint President Obama’s image, the only candidate emphasizing his platform for the people and has yet to resort to any mudslinging, is being ignored by the reigning barons of network television.

Campus sex crimes under-reported O ne Su nd a y m or n i n g last February, a 19-year-old Marquette University student tearfully reported to campus securit y of f icers t hat she had been raped. The officers were legally bound to report that allegation to Milwaukee police. They didn’t. They told the student they didn’t know whether a crime had been committed because the alleged encounter began as consensual. Result: No charges were filed. In June, Marquette administrators ack nowledged to Chicago Tribune reporters Ryan Haggerty and Stacy St. Clair that the university had violated its reporting obligations for the past 10 years. That is unconscionable. Marquette is the second major Midwestern Universit y to come under intense public scrutiny for the way it responds to students’ claims of rape or other sexual attacks. Notre Dame was blistered

by critics for its handling of sexual battery allegations in the 2010 case of Elizabeth “Lizzy” Seeberg. In that case, campus police didn’t interview the accused until two weeks after Seeberg reported the alleged assault to them. By that time, she had committed suicide. Both universities now say they’ve improved the way they deal with such cases. That’s good. The key point for them, and for every college in America: Don’t try to bury allegations of sexual assault with protocol and process. Make sure campus police are well trained to stabilize a situation in which a sexual assault is alleged. That includes making sure the alleged victim gets prompt medical attention and some immediate measure of security. Moreover, let the local criminal justice system do its job. Ea rl ier t h is su m mer, a survey of six Midwest univer-

sities uncovered some facts that won’t be reassuring to women reporting to campuses across the country right now. Among the findings: Women who report sexual violence seldom see t heir accused attackers arrested and almost never see them convicted. The stats: About one in every four rapes repor ted nat iona l ly results in an arrest. Of those, about 62 percent bring convictions. By comparison, the analysis found of the six surveyed universities, law enforcement made one arrest for every 14 alleged sex crimes of all types reported on campus; of those, the conviction rate was 33 percent. It’s no wonder some college women believe that university officials and their police forces operate a system designed to protect the image and reputation of the university first. L aw en forc ement a nd campus officials feel studenton-student sex ua l assau lt

cases are difficult to pursue. Often alcohol or other drugs are involved and there are c on f l ic t i n g a c c ou nt s of whether sexual contact was consensual. Granted, many rape cases are difficult prosecutions, on campus or off, which is all the more reason for college officials to hand allegations of rape and other sex crimes to local authorities, who generally have greater resources and greater independence to investigate. By not reporting sexua l assaults to police, Marquette officials opened themselves to accusations of trying to keep those attacks out of the public eye, but there has been one major change: Marquette policy now requires campus officials to promptly report all sexual assault allegations to the Milwaukee police. Smart move. The editorial above originally appeared in the Chicago Tribune on Wed., Aug. 24, 2011.
