“Smash Bros.” club brings friendly competition to game lovers By Graham Shapley @shapleygraham

Northern Colorado residents have been duking it out with peers for years, but not in the ways you may think. This modern-day Fight Club would seem horrifying if it weren’t for one thing: the violence is all virtual. In actuality, fighters of the Super Smash Bros. Club are sitting down with a game console playing “Super Smash Bros.,”

a long-running and well-loved game series from Nintendo. There have been four releases since its release in 1999 and is gearing up for the release of a fifth ‘ultimate’ edition later this year. “It really gets the adrenaline pumping,” said Elliot Cullen, a Colorado State University economics graduate after being eliminated from a bracket. “The reason I enjoy (Smash Bros.) is that it’s a game where you can make your own combos. It’s

nice to be able to play such a free-form game, compared to other fighting games which have built-in combos.” Starting on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. and stretching well after 9:00 p.m., competitors put money into a pot and sign up to play for a shot to show off their Super Smash skills. Competitors play and practice for dozens of hours to become the best, and this club is their proving ground. Four tournaments are run

during each weekly meeting of the Super Smash Bros. Club. There are doubles tournament, where teams of two will fight one another, and the singles, where fighters face off one-onone. Each tournament is further divided by game. Two games are played at the club: “Super Smash Bros. Melee” and “Super Smash Bros. 4.” Most fighters are specialized in one of the two games, though some fight in multiple tournaments across each game.

Fighters are ranked by the “Smash” community on a tier list from G-tier to A-tier depending on how likely they are to win a game in high-level play. Aaron David Evans, a competitor who goes by the name ‘NotAaron’ for the tournament, doesn’t see the competition as the main point but rather a place to have fun. Depending on the week and amount of competition, some meetings are more

Fire near Seaman Reservoir grows to 150 acres, contained 25 percent By Ravyn Cullor & Natalia Sperry @CSUCollegian

A mountain wildfire that started Tuesday night west of the Seaman Reservoir grew to 150 acres Wednesday afternoon, threatening 11 homes near the Poudre River a half-mile away, according to a news release issued by the United States Forest Service. The  U.S.  Forest Service reported the fire was 25 percent contained as of about 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Smoke conditions are reported to be light, according to a tweet from the Arapaho Roosevelt National Forests & Pawnee National Grassland forest service (ARP).  Light winds and substantial air support helped firefighters make good progress in the latter half of the day to begin the process of containment, according to an evening update released by ARP. The Seaman Fire, burning primarily in the Arapahoe and Roosevelt National Forest about 12 miles northwest of Fort Collins, was determined to have been caused by a lightning strike

on Tuesday. The fire grew from 5 acres to about 139 acres due to windy conditions overnight. Public affairs specialist for the U.S. Forest Service Reid Armstrong said the fire is burning entirely in the area scarred by the 8,000-acre Hewlett Gulch Fire in 2012. The Seaman Fire is primarily burning on rocky terrain in an area of grass and patches of pine trees, making access difficult. No properties have been damaged at this time and the area is under voluntary evacuation,  Armstrong said. The fire did not move much during the day and the structures near the fire are being actively protected.  The Greyrock Trail and trailhead will be closed because of the fire, but the roads will remain open, according to the Seaman Fire’s  incident page sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service. Fire management is transitioning from a Type 4 to a Type 3 management team  Wednesday night, according to ARP. This means an organized team of fire management specialists will come together to coordinate firefighting operations and agency partners, such as  Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, Larimer County Office of Emer-

gency Management and Poudre Fire Authority. As of Wednesday night, 120 firefighters were assigned to the fire, along with two heavy air tankers, two type 1 helicopters, 1 type 3 helicopter, and three Single Engine Air Tankers (SEATs). The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday for Colorado’s northern mountains and valleys, including the area near Seaman Reservoir where the lightning-caused wildfire ignited on Tuesday, according to ARP. Firefighters are expecting red flag conditions  to continue  for the mountains of northern Colorado on Thursday, including the Seaman Fire area, from  10 a.m. to 8 p.m.  and are preparing to adjust tactics to meet the challenging conditions, according to the U.S. Forest Service. A type four incident management team along with crews from the Forest Service, Roosevelt Hotshots, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, Poudre Fire Authority and Rocky Mountain National Park have responded to the fire, according to the release. The Forest Service asked that

drones in the area stay grounded as additional air support is to arrive today to help fight the fire. The Seaman Reservoir, which draws water from the north portion of the Cache La Poudre River, offers Greeley’s largest mountain reservoir at 5,008 acre-feet, according to the City of Greeley. The Poudre also supplies about half of Fort Collins Utilities water. At this time, the fire is not

expected to impact water quality, according to reports from the Greeley Tribune. “We are working closely with water providers in the area and have implemented mitigation measures to limit impact to the reservoir and intakes,” Armstrong wrote in an email to The Collegian.  Ravyn Cullor and Natalia Sperry can be reached at news@ collegian.com.

Bill to fund flags brought to ASCSU Senate floor, new officers ratified By Stuart Smith @stuartsmithnews

A new bill to fund the purchase of Colorado State University flags for family members of deceased students was brought to the floor of the Associated Students of CSU Senate at their session Wednesday night. Speaker of the Senate Ben Amundson presented the bill that would allocate $1,000 to purchase a collection of CSU flags from the bookstore to send to families and loved ones of CSU students who pass away while enrolled. “Any time a student passes away on campus, we take that very seriously,” Amundson said while presenting his bill. “What we do in that situation is we write them a letter from the student body president and we also give them a CSU flag.” The bill would fund flags to send to families of deceased students of both the Fort Collins campus and CSU Online, Amundson said. Amundson specified that the bill would not extend to CSU Pueblo students. Although the tradition began some time ago, there has never been a clear source of funding, which Amundson wants to change.  “It’s always just been a discussion for where that’s coming from,” he said. “If (Senate) could do this, it would be an awesome thing to do.” The money would be pulled from the Senate Discretionary Fund and added to ASCSU’s Supplies Fund, where the money would be used to buy CSU flags from the CSU bookstore. The bookstore currently lists CSU flags at $39.99. According to the bill, Senate is also running low on their supply of flags, necessitating the allocation of funding. The bill was sent to committee for changes to be recommended before next week’s vote on the bill. Three new officers ratified in fourth Senate session  The Senate also ratified three officers into their new positions, two for the Board for Student Organization Funding and one as the new Deputy Chief Justice in ASCSU’s Judicial Branch. BSOF works to allocate money from the student fees shared with ASCSU to registered student organizations for “educational and cultural programming and to administer relevant provisions of Article VIII of the ASCSU Constitution,” according to ASCSU’s website. The ASCSU Executive Branch nominated both officers for the position.  The three ratified officers who were sworn in are Gaurav Harshe and Amundson for BSOF

and Amelia Guglielmi as the deputy chief justice. Harshe was ratified 32-0-1 while Amundson and Guglielmi were unanimously ratified together on a slate, 33-0-0. “Every student has paid into student fees, and I’m really passionate about saying ‘let’s treat everyone fairly,’” Amundson said to the body. “We want to ensure that we’re treating them legally.” Chief Justice Madison Taylor had only good things to say about Guglielmi, whom she nominated for the position.  “What I really wanted was somebody with strong and compassionate leadership skills,” Taylor said. “I wanted somebody who could help me build this branch up.”  A problem Taylor said she ran into at the beginning of this year was a lack of members for the Judicial Branch, having only filled out three of seven positions. “It’s not easy to train the majority of our court,” she said. “I wanted somebody who I knew was qualified … and that’s what I saw in Amelia (Guglielmi).” All three officers were sworn in after being ratified. New officers in the judicial and executive branches will be brought to the Senate for ratification next week. Stuart Smith can be reached at news@collegian.com.

Stormy Daniels promises ‘Full Disclosure’ in new book By Nardine Saad Los Angeles Times

Another week in the Trump administration, another tell-all book. The latest tome targeting President Trump is by adult film star Stormy Daniels, who says she had a sexual relationship with the reality starturned-commander-in-chief and will detail it in the book. “Full Disclosure” will be released Oct. 2, Daniels announced on ABC’s “The View” Wednesday morning. “You were only with Donald Trump like, for what, two times?” asked co-host Joy Behar. “How much can you disclose?” “There’s a lot in the book,” replied Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. “But the book isn’t just about that. That doesn’t define me... Everybody who knows me, and has known me for a long time, knows that I’ve been working on a book for about 10 years. So I just sort of melded everything together. I’ve kept notebooks. The adventures I’ve had on the road and in strip clubs and stuff.

It’ll blow your mind.” Daniels, who said that she had sex with Trump once in 2006 and was paid $130,000 as part of a hush agreement made days before the 2016 election, said she’ll also share details of the night she says she spent with Trump. As for Daniels’ reaction to Trump’s ex-lawyer, Michael Cohen, admitting in court that he made a payment to her in coordination with Trump, Daniels said she felt vindicated. “I was so overwhelmed I just broke down into sobs ... I just felt like all this weight came off my shoulders,” she told the panelists. Daniels’ book is the latest blow to the White House, which has already weathered the fallout from books by author Michael Wolff, former Press Secretary Sean Spicer, former aide Omarosa Manigault, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward and an anonymous “resistance” op-ed in the New York Times last week.

Apple sees nothing impossible with new iPhones By Rex Crum @The Mercury News

Apple might have started its annual September product event Wednesday with a video inspired by the “Mission: Impossible” movie franchise, but in setting a new bar for pricing its biggest generator of sales, Chief Executive Tim Cook & Co. are saying they think nothing is impossible when it comes to juicing demand for the iPhone. Apple used the event at its Apple Park campus to show off three new versions of the iPhone X, and Cook wasted little time stating the company’s purpose. “Today, we’re going to take iPhone X to the next level,” Cook said at the gathering held with Apple Park’s Steve Jobs Theater. “(It’s) by far the most advanced iPhone we have ever created.” The focus of the event was the release of the iPhone Xs, the iPhone

Xs Max and the iPhone Xr. All three models of the iPhone come with glass screens that cover the entire front of the phones. The iPhone Xs has a 5.8-inch diagonal screen, while the iPhone Xr screen measures 6.1 inches and the iPhone Xs Max comes with a 6 {-inch screen that is the largest yet for an iPhone. Among the features of the new Xs models are faster Face ID recognition technology, a portrait mode for the phones’ camera that allows for manual adjustment of a photo’s depth of field, and water resistance of 30 minutes in up to two meters of water. The Xr has many of the same features of the Xs, but is water-resistant in up to one meter of water. Apple said the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will be available for pre-ordering on Sept. 14 and begin shipping Sept. 21, and pre-orders for the iPhone Xr will begin Oct. 19, with initial shipping set for Oct. 26. Depending on the phone model, and the amount of storage in

the device, one of the new iPhones could make a sizable dent in someone’s wallet: The iPhone Xr starts at $749, the iPhone Xs begins at $999 and the iPhone Xs Max claims the title of Apple’s most expensive iPhone, with an introductory price tag of $1,099. All three phones come with either 64, 256 or 512 gigabytes of storage. But even with iPhone prices now easily reaching into four digits, analysts who follow Apple don’t expect demand to decline any time soon. “That won’t deter customers,” said Angelo Zino, of CFRA Research. “At the end of the day, consumers are going to view iPhones as a utility and whether it costs them $25 or $45 a month, they can spread the cost out over time. And that allows Apple to continue to upcharge on its iPhones.” Apple also isn’t wasting any time trying to get some of those new, expensive iPhone sales on the

books for its current business quarter, which ends at the end of September, and also set itself up for the Christmas and holiday shopping season. “It’s classic Apple and Tim Cook,” said Clement Thibault, senior analyst with Investing.com. “People reacted well to the $1,000 iPhone, so here’s a slightly bigger and stronger $1,100 iPhone. The brilliance of Tim Cook has always been his ability to optimize and maximize Apple’s business, and he’s done exactly that today.” It wasn’t all iPhones for Apple on Wednesday. The company also showed off Apple Watch Series 4, which starts at $399, or $499 with cellular capability. The new Apple Watch comes with a screen more than 30 percent larger than the prior version, and offers features such as the ability to anticipate a person falling, and an app that can take an electrocardiogram of a person’s heart.

Cook didn’t give any sales figures for the Apple Watch, but claimed it has become the best-selling smartwatch on the market, and best-selling watch overall. But, even though Apple started the event with updates on the Apple Watch, that device was really just the opening act for the headliner, which was the iPhone. Apple cut the introductory price of its iPhone 8 line to $599 from $699, and lowered the price of the iPhone 7 to $449 from $549. “I think it’s as exciting an iPhone lineup as they have ever had,” said Gene Munster, principal of Loup Ventures. “They checked all the boxes. If you put all of this together, they’re putting the screws down in extracting revenue and nailing all the pricing tiers.” Content pulled from Tribune News Service.

Amnesty International says Curacao is denying Venezuelans By Sonia Osorio El Nuevo Herald

The undocumented Venezuelan immigrant was 18 weeks pregnant when she was detained in Curacao and taken to a police station where she said she was screamed at and thrown against a wall. The woman, identified only as Vanessa, said she was then sent to the “foreigners’ barracks” where she was fed only bread and peanut butter and received no medical attention. She was later deported to Venezuela, where doctors told her the baby had died. Vanessa’s story is part of an Amnesty International report, “Detained and Deported: Venezuelans denied protection in Curacao,” detailing allegations of human rights violations against Venezuelans who seek refuge on the Caribbean island from the economic and political crises lashing their country. “It’s a disgrace that the Curacao government has not established an effective procedure for people to seek asylum. Instead of turning their back on the people fleeing a desperate crisis in Venezuela, the authorities in Curacao must guarantee the rights of all asylum seekers and refugees in need of international protection,” said Erika Guevara-Rosas, Americas director at Amnesty International. Guevara-Rosas added that the Curacao government instead has designed “an active removal strategy” to deport all those with

irregular migration status. The island, which is part of the Netherlands and sits only about 43 miles off the coast of Venezuela, deported 1,203 Venezuelans in 2017 and another 386 in the first four months of this year, according to Amnesty International. Dissidents who remain in Venezuela have been subjected to harassment and intimidation. Food and medicine shortages continue to grow worse and especially affect children, pregnant women and people with chronic ailments, the organization wrote in the report. An estimated 2.3 million Venezuelans have fled this “unprecedented crisis in their country according to the UN, including an estimated 5,000 to 15,000 people presently in Curacao with irregular immigration status,” the AI report noted. The U.N. High Commission for Refugees declared in March that a significant number of the Venezuelans who have fled the country need international protection. But the AI report said Curacao authorities have offered no protection for asylum seekers. “Although the Curacao government claims there is an asylum procedure in place, people from Venezuela told Amnesty International that in practice it is close to impossible to obtain protection,” AI wrote. Netherlands Foreign Minister Stef Blok announced during a visit to the island in April that the country’s Immigration and Naturalization Service would

send staffers to the island to process the Venezuelan refugees, according to the Curacao Chronicle newspaper. The agency would separate “the true refugees from economic refugees,” Blok was quoted as saying. Blok added that Curacao, Aruba and the Dutch-ruled part of Saint Martin were responsible for processing the Venezuelan migrants but said that most of them are economic refugees. “I called the police station to ask where I could apply for protection. The police officer laughed and told me that no such procedure existed,” said an unidentified Venezuelan member of a humanitarian organization quoted in the report. The AI report singled out issues such as detaining immigrants in police lockups and the case of two children placed in a government children’s home while their mother was detained. The mother, Natalia Saabedra, 31, was detained at the dental clinic where she worked as a cleaning woman after police were told that an undocumented foreigner worked there. Police then picked up her children, 6 and 8 years old, and put them in the home. The three were deported 75 days later. She was denied access to a lawyer, was never given clean clothes and was threatened four times by island immigration officials, Saabedra told AI. Amnesty International wrote that it also “observed inexcusable conditions in detention centers,

including overcrowding, a lack of privacy, poor hygiene in shower and bathroom areas, and a lack of suitable bedding. Several people told the organization that they had suffered ill treatment upon arrest or in detention, including the proposition of sexual favors in exchange for sanitary towels and soap.” Curacao authorities must protect people fleeing the crisis in Venezuela and “put an end to the appalling conditions they face upon reaching Curacao, AI said. The organization called on Curacao authorities to “guarantee the rights of asylum seekers and refugees by setting up a fair and effective asylum procedure.

They should only use detention as a last resort, as set out in international human rights law, and must conduct prompt, thorough, independent and impartial investigations into all allegations of human rights violations upon arrest and in custody.” The Netherlands government “must investigate what’s happening in Curacao and should offer its support and guidance to ensure that new arrivals receive the protection they need. The Kingdom cannot turn a blind eye while people’s human rights are being violated,” said Guevara-Rosas. Content pulled from Tribune News Service.

Trump defends Puerto Rico response as Hurricane Florence nears By John T. Bennett CQ-Roll Call

President Donald Trump on Wednesday warned Hurricane Florence could prove “bigger than anticipated” as it barrels toward the Carolinas and sharply blamed a Puerto Rican mayor for the widely panned federal response to a storm there last year. FEMA Administrator Brock Long on Tuesday warned Florence has “an opportunity of being a very devastating storm,” adding “the power is going to be off for weeks.” He predicts the storm will be a Category 3 or Category 4 hurricane when it makes landfall this weekend. And Trump told reporters after being briefed by Long and Homeland Security officials that Florence will be “tremendously big and tremendously wet” with “tremendous amounts of water.” On Wednesday morning, the president appeared to step up his warnings about the size and force of Florence. He tweeted this as preparations on the North and South Carolina coasts continue: “Hurricane Florence is looking even bigger than anticipated. It will be arriving soon.” And as he did Tuesday, Trump appeared to guarantee the federal response will be sufficient, adding: “FEMA, First Responders and Law Enforcement are supplied and ready,” and urging people in the path to “Be safe!”

But that warning came six minutes after the president who former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon calls a “streetfighter” punched back at critics of his Tuesday contention that his government’s preparations before and response following Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico were “an incredible, unsung success.” “Texas, we had been given A-plusses for. Florida, we’ve been given A-plusses for” in response to hurricanes there last year, he said. “I think, in a certain way, the best job we did was Puerto Rico, but nobody would understand that. I mean, it’s harder to understand.” Trump did not address the higher death toll and damage assessments than his administration initially issued. He also criticized power companies on the island for not being effective or of high quality. And on Wednesday morning, he added San Juan Mayor San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz to his blame game. He again repeated his self-given grades for Florida and Texas, adding his administration “did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico, even though an inaccessible island with very poor electricity and a totally incompetent Mayor of San Juan.” The president was widely criticized Tuesday for his contention that the Puerto Rico response was a success, with House Minority Whip Steny B. Hoyer calling the remarks “offensive” and demand-

ing an apology. “He ought to apologize, and Congress ought to investigate what went wrong with the Trump administration’s response and identify steps to ensure it does not happen again,” Hoyer said in a statement. “With another storm now threatening our country, I pray that the president and his

University of Minnesota fraternity Judge rules against house death is under investigation professor who wants to By Chao Xiong The Minneapolis Star Tribune

Police are investigating the death of a University of Minnesota sophomore found Wednesday morning in the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity house near the St. Paul campus. Police spokesman Steve Linders said authorities do not believe foul play was involved, nor do they believe it was caused by hazing or initiation practices. But alcohol could be a factor pending autopsy results, he added. The 20-year-old man’s identity has not been released, but the fraternity’s national office said he was a sophomore at the university. Local fraternity leaders notified campus police and local authorities “immediately after fraternity members discovered the young man was medically unresponsive this morning,” said a written statement from the national office in Kansas City, Mo. “We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family and loved ones, as well as to our brothers in the University of Minnesota chapter,” said Rex Martin, CEO of Alpha Gamma Rho. University of Minnesota Vice Provost for Student Affairs

and Dean of Students Maggie Towle confirmed that the man was a student, but shared no other details. “We are saddened to learn of the death of one of our students,” she said in a written statement. “The Saint Paul Police Department is leading the investigation of this death. They will handle any related questions.” Police were called about 5 a.m. to the fraternity house in the 2000 block of Carter Avenue. Police found the man dead in the home. Linders said he was unsure exactly where the man was located inside. Residents reported last seeing the man alive about 1 a.m. Linders said it’s unclear whether the man lived in the house. About 10 residents of the house were questioned at police headquarters and are cooperating. Homicide detectives are investigating the case because the man was “seemingly healthy” before being found, Linders said. The fraternity deferred comment to the national office. The group describes itself on a university Greek website as “the premier social and professional food, agricultural and natural resource sciences fraternity” at the university. “We pride ourselves in being the highest quality fraternity

through our excellence in academics, athletics, and making better men,” the website said. “Get the best of both campuses and live in a $2.5 million brand new house!” The fraternity reported a membership of 30. The university’s Interfraternity Council (IFC), the governing body for 30 fraternities with more than 1,500 men, including Alpha Gamma Rho, did not immediately return messages seeking comment. Several hours after the man’s body was found, the IFC’s Facebook page shared a post that said: “Today is #myFraternity Social Media Day! Share your story of fraternity experience with over 4 million other brothers by using #myFaternity.” Fall “rush,” or, recruitment for university fraternities, was last week, ending with hopefuls making personal visits to Greek organizations of their liking, and fraternities extending membership invitations as early as Thursday, according to the IFC’s website. The university urged anyone needing support and counseling to contact Boynton Health or Student Counseling Services for assistance. Content pulled from Tribune News Service.

bring his gun to campus By Mará Rose Williams The Kansas City Star

Hey, Mizzou law professor, for now you have to leave your gun at home. Circuit Court Judge Jeff Harris this week ruled against University of Missouri law professor Royce Barondes, who challenged the school’s rule prohibiting concealed guns on campus – even if they’re locked in a personal car. Missouri’s concealed gun statute allows state employees to keep a licensed firearm out of sight and locked away in their vehicles while they’re parked on state property. But the university prohibits guns on campus, “except in regularly approved programs or by university agents or employees in the line of duty.” Barondes, who has worked at MU since 2002 and teaches a course on firearms law, sued the university in 2015, challenging its gun prohibition. He sought no monetary payment. The judge ruled that the

university policy does not conflict with the state statute. “We are pleased with the court ruling on the state statute issue,” said Christian Basi, MU spokesman. But Wednesday’s ruling only represents a partial victory for the university. The judge also has been asked to consider whether the MU gun policy is constitutional, a completely different question than whether it violates state statute. A decision on the constitutionality of the policy is still pending. The university is now preparing oral arguments. If the judge finds that the MU gun prohibition policy is unconstitutional, that ruling would supersede this week’s decision. That would mean that pending a university appeal, Barondes could be toting his gun on campus, tucked in his vehicle’s glove compartment. Content pulled from Tribune News Service.

COLLEGIAN COLUMNISTS

SERIOUSLY

Acknowledging the stolen land we stand on Kenia Ortiz @CSUCollegian

Editor’s Note: All opinion section content reflects the views of the individual author only and does not represent a stance taken by The Collegian or its editorial board. As we begin to welcome in new students at the start of the semester, Colorado State University has made it a practice of mentioning that our campus sits on “stolen land” during its opening ceremonies for students. Since I started attending CSU in 2016, I have heard this topic come up a lot more. As a second-year resident assistant, I have been to convocation, the welcome ceremony for the incoming freshman class, three times. I attended as a freshman, a sophomore and this year as a junior. I was glad convocation started by acknowledging that CSU is sitting on stolen land. I am proud of CSU for stating this out loud and welcoming our incoming class by acknowledging the history, but I do hope it does not end here. It is important that CSU and the Fort Collins community continue to  acknowledge this and continue to explore ways to show support and respect towards the history of this land and its people. Native American students make up the smallest percentage of our school’s population, which is about 1 percent, according to data from the Institutional Research, Planning and Effective-

ness. In May, two prospective Native American students had campus police called on them during a tour of the campus, because another woman on the tour said she felt nervous about the students’ presence on the tour. In the remaining time I have left at CSU, I want to see us as a community find ways of talking about the history of this land before it was a school and the measures that were taken to have it become the University we have today. Many students are not aware that the land which the University is built on was the homeland to Native American tribes where they hunted, built a community and passed down traditions. The land was once home to Ute, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Lakota, Apache and Comanche tribes, according to the Fort Collins History Connection, but they were pushed to the side and labeled as invaders. In the 1840s, settlers began making their way into Larimer County and with them brought contagious diseases such as measles and cholera. As the settlers moved in, roads were built, buffalo herds shrunk and settlers built homes on hunting grounds, according to FCHC.  In 1867, the Treaty of Medicine Lodge Creek took place when the tribe of Southern Cheyenne and Arapaho gave up their land and were moved to a reservation in Oklahoma and Southeastern Montana, according to FCHC. It is important that the CSU community knows this and registers this fact because it applies to CSU, Fort Collins and the entirety of America.  I have often

NOPE

&

heard comments such as, “It was a long time ago, let it go.” Imagine being told to let go of something that massacred thousands of families and stripped away land and traditions. Imagine being told that the loss and pain that was inflicted on your community should just be let go. In a time where this country is polarized on issues of immigration and holds hostile attitudes towards non-white Americans, it is important to remember who this land belongs to. There has been an uproar on nativism and nationalism and what it means to be “American,” when the true Americans have been massacred and have limited resources. Even if the removal of Native American tribes took place in the late 1800s, the effects in contemporary times are still relevant. Many Native American communities report having up to 85 percent unemployment, according to an article from Bloomberg; less than 50 percent  of Native students graduate high school and as of 2011, there were over 120,000 Native homes that lacked access to water sanitation services. I hope that the phrase “we are on stolen land” does not become a passive statement that will no longer have an effect. I also have hope that our community will continue to try to find a meaningful way to acknowledge the history of the land we are on and the people who were here and wrongfully removed before us.

Colin Kaepernick to star in Captain America reboot By Arisson Stanfield @OddestOdyssey

Editor’s note: This is a satire piece from The Collegian’s opinion section. Real names may be used in fictitious/semi-fictitious ways. Those who do not read editor’s notes are subject to being offended. Marvel Studios announced that production of “Avengers: Infinity War Part 2” has been put on hold to begin shooting “Captain America 4: The True Civil War.” The film will mark a change in casting for the multi-million dollar franchise as actor Chris Evans will be replaced in the role of Captain America by athlete and activist Colin Kaepernick. “It’s time the role was given to a true patriot,” Marvel executive Isaiah Bradley said. “Everybody knows there’s nothing more American than a proud Black man fighting for his freedom.”  The film will be directed by Spike Lee and is set in Civil War-era America. It will follow the story of former slave Christopher Evans as he volunteers for the Northern Army’s experimental super-soldier program. Imbued with superhuman strength and a thirst for justice, the newly empowered Captain America travels to the South to take on Jefferson Davis and his legion of Confederate soldiers, backed by a powerful being known only as Yakub.  The film’s announcement has been met with outcry by Marvel fans. There are even reports that sales of “Captain America” comics have increased 1,863 percent as fans have begun purchasing the comic for the sake of burning it. The goals of this anti-boycott are unclear as the method of protest has, as of yet, only increased the company’s revenue. Fans have reacted with more than just arson as many have claimed they now fear for their safety.

“Every year they just take more and more from us,” Fort Collins resident Duke Davis said. “I mean just imagine if White people asked for a ‘White Panther’ movie or asked for some strong-jawed Nordic god to join the Avengers! There would be hell to pay!” Some claim that Marvel’s choice in casting is inherently divisive, saying it detracts from the purpose of the franchise. “Movies are meant to be an escape,” said Wilson Fisk, a senior business major at Colorado State University. “I mean, I hate police brutality as much as the next guy but...do we have to...you know...talk about it?” Reactions to the announcement makes it clear that there is nothing more American than the racial question. Even now the country seems to be asking itself where, when and who is allowed to be Black.  Marvel polling data reveals that 40 percent of readers reported feeling that a Black Captain America “seemed less American.” When asked why she felt Kaepernick was not fit for the role, Marvel fan Becky Burke said, “I mean its just not fair cause we were here first. Being a nerd is being part of a culture and you can’t just take our culture and treat it like a costume that anyone can just put on or take off.” As more and more White fans claim they are now the targets of unfair oppression, some have even gone so far as to begin seeking asylum from North Korea and Russia as paranoid worries of an impending “war on white men” continue to mount. When asked to speak on why disillusioned Americans were being denied entry, President Vladmir Putin said, “I mean its just a movie. What’s the big deal? Do Americans really think this Kaepernick man is the cause of their worries?”  Arisson Stanfield can be reached at letters@collegian. com.

VOLLEYBALL

Power Five matchups for CSU volleyball will pay off Luke Zahlmann @lukezahlmann

Pegged as one of the hardest out-of-conference schedules in years, coach Tom Hilbert has set up Colorado State volleyball to thrive in the latter half of the year. With a trio of tournaments and six of the nine teams competing in the Power Five, the Rams have set up a gauntlet of competition in the early going. The scheduling is not completely in the hands of Hilbert due to agreements to play “home and home” matchups, as well as various tournaments. Including TCU and Florida State, each tournament was scheduled in one of three venues, but only TCU remains as a future host. “I think we probably scheduled too hard,” Hilbert said. “But, it’s not going to hurt us. The only way we get hurt is if we come out of this losing nine (games).” Those matchups, in which the Rams went 4-2, will give the team a leg up once the conference season begins, with the postseason testing the Rams’ mettle. In just the first 12 games, the Rams will have faced three top-25 teams, with the University of Illinois at the top at No. 12 when they came to Fort Collins, now up to No. 8 on the season. In the Illinois match, the Rams actually looked better than the visitors. Outside of the fifth set, the Rams thoroughly outplayed the Illini, out hitting them by percentage, as well as a greater number in service aces. The problem for the Rams was their service play in general, with the service aces merely covering up that issue. In a game where Hilbert instructed the team to serve aggressively, the Rams made several mistakes. The risk did not pay off for the Rams in front of their largest crowd in team history. Following the win over the Rams, Illinois has yet to use a match on the year, with the Rams posing as one of only two teams of the Illini first eight games to take the team five sets. A feat that even No. 13 Washington and No. 20 Colorado failed to do. The Rams won a majority

of their games in their largest two tournaments of the year, with a sweep to the No. 20 University of Michigan being the low point. After a year in which the Rams beat the Wolverines twice, they were unable to make it three-in-a-row as the home team used last year’s matchups to motivate them this year. Led by juniors Kirstie Hillyer and Katie Oleksak, with the former being a redshirt, along with redshirt sophomore Breana Runnels, the Rams have a deadly attacking lineup. Their lineup of strikers took a hit in the offseason however as they lost seniors Sanja Cizmic and Jasmine Hanna, the latter being the all-time leader in kills for

the program. Stepping up in her wake has been Runnels, though the Rams’ depth has already been tested often this year with several lineup changes to show for it. Runnels leads the team with 121 kills through nine matches, with Hillyer directly behind her with 111 of her own. Distributing the ball is Oleksak who leads the Mountain West in assists per set (10.94). The mark, though best in the conference, is actually a step down from Oleksak’s career averages which are nearly a full assist per set higher than her tally this season. Once the Rams’ hitters are able to develop a better rapport with

the 2017 Mountain West Player of the Year, the attack will get even better. The same goes for the hitting as a whole as the Rams’ mark of .243 in hitting percentage is also sure to rise as the percentages of Runnels (.173) and redshirt junior Jessica Jackson (.172) both figure to rise. Runnels is nearly .060 behind her mark last year in which she led the team with 367 kills, a mark she may surpass this year at her current pace with positive regression intertwined. With improvement to come in conference play, meshed with the experience gained in high stakes matches in front of large crowds, including the opener against Il-

linois in which the attendance set a record, the Rams are on their way towards success. Wins against quality teams will also boost their RPI, a rating that fell just short of being able to host last year, limiting the Rams success in the postseason. Though the opening schedule has been daunting for CSU volleyball, the method behind the schedule is preparation, something they will have in droves come the postseason this year.

CROSS COUNTRY

Throwback Thursday: Barnes leads Rams to win over CU

Men’s cross country team ranked top-10 in nation, women top-30

By Matthew Pucak Collegian Archives

Editor’s note: This article was originally published in the Collegian on Sept. 11, 2008. It may be a bit redundant to again say that Mekana Barnes stood out for the CSU volleyball team, but no one seems to mind. The Rams dropped rival Colorado (25-23, 25-23, 19-25, 25-16) Sept. 10, 2008 in Boulder, and it was Barnes’ play that drove the Rams.  “I want to be a go-to player if that’s what they need me to do,” said Barnes, who tallied 15 kills and a season-high nine blocks. “If I an doing that, and Ashley (Fornstrom) is getting me the ball high, then that gives me the opportunity to score a lot of points.”  Barnes’ teammates were impressed with her ability to take over the matches, even if they are accustomed to it,  “I really feel like Mekana played well for us tonight, of course she always plays really well for us,” said senior setter Ashley Fornstrom, who led the Rams with 45 assists. “I felt like

COLLEGIAN FILE PHOTO COLLEGIAN

she was a really good leader for us tonight. Every time she was on the court we were scoring points. Props to her, she kept us in the match tonight.” The crucial moment in the match came in the second set, when the Rams, after trailing in their first set win, saw CU hold a seemingly insurmountable 23-19 advantage. CSU (6-1) then went on a 6-0 run which outside hitter Jacque Davisson  started with a kill and an ace, and Barnes finished off with a block and two kills for the final three points of the set.  “Jacque (Davisson) and Mekana were huge for us in the second set,” head coach Tom Hilbert said. “This match would have been totally different if we had not come back in the set. Mekana made some big plays and Jacque had some great serves which was key.” If it wasn’t for Barnes’ dominating play, Davisson may have been the story of the Rams, as she played a very emotional game for the Rams, celebrating good plays with screams of joy and punching  a ball in frustration  after a

mistake. “This was CU, our in-state rival,” Davisson said, who led the Rams with 38 total attacks and chipped in nine kills. “I don’t really understand the rivalry, as I am only a sophomore, but I think that there was definitely that energy from the upperclassmen that this was a big game. I just really felt (the importance) coming from the coaches and the upperclassmen.” The loss was the first for the Buffs (6-1) this season, and they felt they let their opportunities to win the match slip away.  “They are the toughest team we have played, the most consistent. They came out to play and so did we, but we just didn’t have the mental thing tonight,” Colorado sophomore Schylur Edelman said, who led the Buffs with 13 kills and eight blocks.  The Rams were happy with their victory, but  they can’t rest, as up next are two tough games, Friday with North Carolina, and Saturday against No. 8 Florida.  The Collegian sports desk can be reached at sports@collegian. com.

The latest United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches’ Association rankings were posted Tuesday as the Colorado State men’s cross country ranked in the top-10 for the second week in a row. The men’s team remains ranked at fourth in an otherwise stacked Mountain Region, behind last year’s national champions Norther Arizona University with No. 2 Brigham Young University and No. 7 University of Colorado both falling ahead of the Rams as well. For the first time since the first week of the USTFCCCA poll in 2008, the women’s team has entered the rankings coming in at No. 30. After a successful run at the Wyoming Invite in which several new Rams found their way into scoring for the team, the rankings gave credit to the squad with a jump

in the polls. On the men’s side, the Rams dominated the field, coming in at first over not only No.16 Air Force, but a partial roster from No. 7 Colorado and Wyoming. In the same event, behind the guidance of experienced Minnesota transfer Bailey Ness who placed fourth at the Invite, the women’s team placed third overall, one of their best meets in recent memory. The last time that both the  men’s and women’s team were ranked in the poll was week one of the 2005 cross country season.  The CSU cross country team will look to continue their successful season at the Wisconsin Nuttycombe Invitational. The meet will take place on Sept. 28 on the Thomas Zimmer Championship Cross Country Course in Madison, Wisconsin. Michelle Gould can be reached at sports@collegian. com.

The Avalanche will be a cohesive Michael Joly hopes to club, captain Gabe Landeskog says thrill the Avalanche with his scoring ability By Mike Chambers The Denver Post

Following a successful golf outing Tuesday, two days before the Avalanche reports for training camp, team captain Gabe Landeskog noted the obvious differences from a year ago, when the club was coming off its worst season in franchise history and one of its top forwards didn’t want to be part of the rebuild. “We raised the bar for everything we do,” Landeskog said. After trading disgruntled center Matt Duchene on Nov. 5, the Avs made a remarkable 47-point improvement in the standings to advance to their third playoff appearance in 10 years. Unlike last year, everyone is excited about being part of this team from Day 1. “Everybody that’s here is buying in on what we’re doing,” Landeskog said after his fivesome finished tied for sixth in the Avs’ annual charity golf classic at The Ridge at Castle Pines North. “It’s going to be fun. It’s a fun time.” Colorado’s veterans report Thursday for physicals and testing at the Pepsi Center. On-ice training

camp sessions are Friday through Monday at the Family Sports Center. This year won’t be the circus like last year, when Duchene indirectly said he had no future with a team on the first day of camp. “My mind-set is always the same – to come in as prepared as I could possibly be, and I think everybody has the same mind-set (this year),” Landeskog said. “Everybody that is here wants to be here, and wants to help the team. That’s what we’re trying to do – to try keeping this thing going forward and take the next step.” New forward Matt Calvert, acquired from the Columbus Blue Jackets on July 1 during free agency, led his fivesome to the tournament title Tuesday with a 21-under-par scramble. The groups with defenseman Erik Johnson and center Carl Soderberg tied for second at 19-under, and center Tyson Jost and his teammates were fourth at minus-18. Jost, 20, is among a handful second-year players looking to build on their fine rookie seasons, along with fellow forwards Alex Kerfoot, J.T. Compher and Dominic Toninato and defenseman Sam Girard, among others.

“We got a lot of help from young and excited guys that wanted to be in the NHL last year – we’re talking about Josty, Girard, Compher, Kertoot, Toninato, all these guys. Ultimately, it’s about all of us veterans to take that next step and also for these young guys taking the next step – keep developing, keep moving forward.” Colorado’s preseason opener is Tuesday, Sept. 18, against the visiting Vegas Golden Knights. The Avs, who went 43-30-9 (95 points) last season, open their 23rd season Oct. 4 at home against the Minnesota Wild. “It’s an exciting time to be an Avs fan, an exciting time to be part of what we’re trying to do,” Landeskog said. “With last year – it’s only going to get tougher from here. It’s not going to get easier. Look at the Western Conference. Everybody is getting better. And I feel like we’ve gotten better too. But I feel like it’s important for us as a group to remember what made us successful last year and remember that we all have to take another step forward.” Content pulled from Tribune News Service.

Two levels down from the NHL last season, right winger Michael Joly put up Alex Ovechkin-like numbers for the ECHL-champion Colorado Eagles. Joly, a 23-year-old Quebec native and second-year Avalanche prospect, paced the “double-A” ECHL with 41 goals in just 52 games – missing nearly a quarter of the season while playing for San Antonio of the “triple-A” American Hockey League. Joly’s goals-per-game average: .79 – nearly 20 points higher than Ovechkin’s .60 (NHLhigh 49 goals in 82 games). Make no mistake, there’s a big difference between the ECHL and NHL, but Joly hopes to take his high-scoring ways back to the Eagles – the Avs’ new AHL affiliate in Loveland – and eventually compete for a promotion to Colorado’s NHL team. In Loveland, Eagles players will be just 59 miles and a phone call away of being called up to the NHL. The expansion Eagles are the state’s first AHL team, establishing an ideal partnership with the Avs when it comes to geographic-enhanced development and growing hockey along the Front Range with an already rabid fan base in northern Colorado. “It will be nice to play for the same team, but being at a different level – a higher level,” Joly said Friday at the Avs’ rookie-camp practice, before the group traveled to Las Vegas for Rookie Showcase games against their peers from the Vegas Golden Knights, Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks. “I think I can keep it up,” Joly said of his high scoring ability. “It stays the same for me. I won’t change my game. I’ll have to do some little things different, but I’ll play my game.” Joly, 5-foot-11 and 172 pounds, was a major-junior star

in Quebec but went undrafted. Avs general manager Joe Sakic took an interest in Joly last season when he was under contract with the Eagles, who were the Avs’ ECHL partner. Joly was called up to San Antonio at various times and produced three goals and seven points in 19 games. Joly returned to Colorado for the ECHL playoffs and produced 29 points (13 goals) in 24 games as the Eagles won their second straight Kelly Cup championship. “Lot of conversation with Joe (about Joly) at the end of last year,” Avalanche assistant general manager Craig Billington said. “(Joly) has a history of scoring at every level, then he’s MVP of the playoffs. He continues to produce and he has edge to his game. He’s a guy we want to work with and see if he can take it to the next level and keep producing. Scoring goals is one of the most difficult things to do and he’s provided that at the different levels.” Joly said he wasn’t as effective in San Antonio because he wasn’t always playing on the top two lines and the power play, like he was with the Eagles. “It was really hard, going up and down to San Antonio. It was hard because I didn’t get to play much (in the top two lines) at the beginning. I got to play more at the end. At first I was playing on the fourth line, not really playing. At the end of the year it was fine. I was playing first and second power play, and second line,” Joly said. Joly, a left-shooting right winger like the Avs’ Mikko Rantanen, is expected to play a topsix role in the Avs’ rookie showcase. It’s who he is. “I hope to be very offensive, play my game – score goals, produce points,” Joly said. “At the same time I want to prove that I can play in both ends of the ice.” Content pulled from Tribune News Service.

Broncos Week 2 opponent: Raiders Scouting Report By Ryan O’Halloran The Denver Post

Sept. 11–Coach: Jon Gruden (fifth year with Raiders – 38-27 regular season, 2-2 postseason; 12th year overall – 95-82 regular season, 5-4 postseason). Record: 0-1. Last week: Lost 33-13 to the Los Angeles Rams. Next week: at Miami. Offense Play caller: Coach Jon Gruden. Analysis: Gruden, 55, is back in coaching after spending the last decade in the ESPN booth. He returned to the Raiders in January for a reported 10-year, $100 million contract. Gruden called the plays during his first stint in Oakland (1998-2001) and his time in Tampa Bay (2002-08). He is a West Coast Offense disciple, working under Mike Holmgren in Green Bay. ... Greg Olson is the offensive coordinator. He coached for Gruden in Tampa Bay. ... In Monday’s loss to the Rams, Oakland gained 395 yards, but QB Derek Carr had three interceptions that led to 13 Rams points. ... Running backs and tight ends accounted for 24 of Carr’s 29 completions. ... Gruden used six different personnel groupings, led by 3WR-1RB1TE (46 out of 74 snaps), but also 19 snaps with at least two tight ends on the field. ... The

only receivers to play were Amari Cooper (69 snaps), Jordy Nelson (72) and Seth Roberts (47). ... Carr posted only the second three-INT game of his career (the other was in 2015 against Kansas City). Carr took a low hit from Rams DT Aaron Donald (who was penalized) in the first half and looked uncertain in the pocket, throwing it away one time although pressure wasn’t present and then a fundamentally poor interception that appeared to be a throwaway attempt. Carr is 3-4 all-time against the Broncos (1-2 at Mile High) with nine TDs and four INTs. ... The Raiders will use three RBs: Veterans Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin and 24-yard old Jalen Richard. ... Lynch is an all-time bruiser, able and willing to carry the pile for more yards. Lynch’s last 1,000-yard season was 2014 in Seattle. ... Martin had two 1,400-yard years with Tampa Bay (2012 and ‘15), but was allowed to leave in free agency. ... Because Lynch was ill and the Raiders fell behind, Richard led the backs in playing time (37 snaps) and caught a career-high nine passes. ... FB Keith Smith played seven snaps on Monday. ... Carr’s best weapon was TE Jared Cook, who tied a career-best nine catches and his 180 yards were his most in a game. He will line up at the traditional TE spot, but also in the

slot and by himself on one side opposite three WRs. He was so effective against the Rams that CB Aqib Talib was occasionally assigned to him in the second half. ... Derek Carrier and Lee Smith are the other tight ends. ... Look for the Raiders to prioritize Cooper and Nelson against the Broncos. Cooper had one catch for nine yards and Nelson three catches for 23 yards. ... The fourth overall pick in 2015, Cooper started with two 1,000yard seasons but slipped to 680 last year. ... Nelson, who spent his first nine years in Green Bay and had four 1,200-yard seasons, signed with Oakland after the Packers cut him. ... The Raiders have spent money and draft picks on their offensive line. RG Gabe Jackson and LG Kelechi Osemele each have a $10.5 million salary cap number (tied for second on the team). RT Donald Penn is at $5.275 million. C Rodney Hudson and rookie first-round LT Kolton Miller close out the starting five. ... Miller held his own in his NFL debut. Jackson was beat by Donald’s swim move for a sack. ... The Rams rushed four on 39 of Carr’s 46 drop-backs. Defense Play caller: Coordinator Paul Guenther. Analysis: Guenther, 46, joined the Raiders after 13 years with Cincinnati. He was the Bengals’ coordinator from

2014-17 and Broncos coach Vance Joseph led the defensive backs for the first two years. ... The Raiders run a 4-3 scheme. ... Oakland allowed 5.4 yards per carry to the Rams, including 108 yards on 20 carries by RB Todd Gurley. ... The Raiders rushed five or more players at Rams QB Jared Goff only six times in 37 drop-offs and had one sack (DE Bruce Irvin) and one other hit (DE Arden Key). ... The starting DL on Monday: Justin Ellis and second-round pick PJ Hall inside and Irvin and Frostee Rucker outside.

“We try to have the motto that we’re here for fun, not necessarily to win. It can get pretty competitive in here, and we don’t want to drive people away.” AARON DAVID EVANS SMASH BROTHERS COMPETITOR

“I feel like today’s going to be a low tier day,” Evans said, referring to the character choices of some fighters. “We’re just here to have fun.”

It’s hard not to get caught up in the thrill of a close game. Spectators will circle around the television set-up and the players. They cheer at good plays, get excited as the battle wears on, and will make idle chat with one another about who they think is going to win. Of course, a loss can bring frustration but is usually accompanied by a show of sportsmanship. A quick “good game” and a handshake is appropriate, or at the very least a fist-bump. “Sometimes people are nervous to come into the club and play video games with strangers,” Evans said. “It’s like, ‘What kind of people are these’? That’s why we try to have the motto that we’re here for fun, not necessarily to win. It can get pretty competitive in here, and we don’t want to drive people away.” The once-per-semester tournament Battery Basement 10, was held in Lory Student Center earlier this semester and attracted fighters from all around Colorado. The gener-

al goal seemed to mostly be a chance to blow off some steam. Attendance was on the low end, being a bit above thirty people, but Cullen assures that usually, it gets busier. Super Smash Club CSU meets on Wednesdays starting at 5:30 p.m. in Behavioral Science Building room 104. Entering a tournament is $2 to get a name on the list, or $1 if you bring a set-up to play on. Players are encouraged to bring their own controllers.

CULTURE & COMMUNITY

El Centro prepares for the wave of events for LatinX Heritage Month By Henry Netherland @NetherlandHenry

In celebration of LatinX Heritage Month, El Centro has compiled a series of events between September 15 and October 11 that showcase a variety of aspects of LatinX culture and heritage. Fernando Montelongo, Family Leader of El Centro’s La Conexión says the month is incredibly important for all members of the LatinX community. “It’s a time to celebrate our heritage, our history and our culture,” Montelongo said. “Every single Latin America country is important to us. . . . Everybody’s included here, everybody’s welcome. We try to include a little bit of every culture here as well as addressing topics and issues that are relevant to our community.” International studies major and El Centro member Alexis Watson says as a Latina, it’s empowering to be able to see her cultural identity as a focal point of CSU and seen as something to celebrate. “I think it’s super important to have these events to celebrate LatinX month,” Watson said. “[The events] are able to better educate other CSU students and community members more about a culture that has been the subject of today’s incredibly heated political climate.” Economics and ethnic studies student Andrew Oviedo and El Centro member works as an RA in Braiden and looks for ways to relay Heritage Month back to his residents. “Last year I did an informational board about the icons and importance of LatinX culture and what it means,” Oviedo said. “I also like to take my students to different events around campus or town and try to promote some level of education around the culture. I think what revolves around this is the education piece and that celebration of what it means to be LatinX or Hispanic in the United States and how to cherish it.” Ovideo says he encourages students to check out El Centro which he describes as an inclusive community that provides a hub for the LatinX community but is not exclusive to it. Applied computing technology major Keabeth Gonzalez celebrates LatinX Heritage Month by making traditional Mexican food but also hanging out with her fellow LatinX students at El Centro and participating in Las Comadres, a Latina group. “This group is for finding a community,” said Gonzalez. “Sometimes it can be a little

overwhelming to go somewhere that’s not as easily as relatable as here, where there are people from the same area or understand the same slangs or jokes.” Gonzalez mentioned her and other LatinX students are working on unveiling a mural following the month of events. Here are some notable events to look forward to during LatinX Heritage Month. Café Tacvba Concert Sept. 15, doors open at 6 p.m., show begins at 8 p.m., Mishawaka Theater Mexican alternative rock band, Café Tacvba will be kicking off the month with a special performance held at the Mish-

awaka Amphitheatre. In addition, El Centro has allowed CSU students to get half-price shuttle rides to the venue (originally $22, now $11). Students may even be able to win free tickets by following the Facebook pages for El Centro, La Conexión, and Las Comadres. Tickets may be purchased at themishawaka. com, and the password elcentro will take off $5. Where Do I Belong in My LatinX Community? A Pilgrimage of Self Discovery Sept. 18 1:30-2:45 p.m., Lory Student Center in El Centro Students not yet acquainted with El Centro have the opportunity to learn about the orga-

nization and its goals. They can also share their experiences of being a LatinX student at CSU.

A presentation about the intersectionality of LatinX and Queer identities will be held at

Dinner and Dance Oct. 11, 5-8 p.m., Ram’s Horn To close off the month, the CSU and local community are invited to partake in a variety of LatinX cuisine and music. Guests will also have the chance to learn how to salsa dance. Admission will be $7 for staff and faculty and $12.50 for the general community.

FOOD & DINING

What’s for Dinner with Audrey: Big Al’s, a bargain of a burger By Audrey Weiss @Audkward

Nothing quite beats a burger on these unusually hot September days. There’s something about how perfectly grilled ground beef and an array of bright vegetables marry so gloriously, but only when done right. Big Al’s Burgers and Dogs is inexpensive and can really satisfy a burger craving. This place is good. Like, really good. From the various types of fries  to the 60/40 burger (60 percent beef, 40 percent bacon patty), this place seems to have it all. The ambiance pulls you in, from the local artwork hanging on the walls to the bench standing on literal legs—shoes and all. It’s as if a FoCo hipster decided to open a diner and the service is always wonderful. The employees are cheerful and goofy, and always willing to

take a second and chat instead of trying to push customers out as fast as possible. The company itself works to support local artists and the community with their Big Change Jar which goes straight to Project Self Sufficiency—a charity aimed at numerous local groups, including local veterans, environmental sustainability and homeless animals.

BIG AL’S LOCATION ■ Located at 140 W. Mountain Ave. ■ Open Sunday – Thursday 10

a.m. – 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. – 11 p.m.

The fry combinations are outrageous. Classic Big Al’s seasoning, truffle, salt and vinegar, sour cream and onion, and buffalo. My heart skips a beat! And if you’re outrageously

indecisive, like myself, you can mix and match. Their  shakes are a perfect consistency and super tasty. Not to mention, they offer seasonal flavors. Big Al’s also accommodates gluten-free diets and offers lettuce buns. My order consisted of half-and-half parmesan and buffalo fries, and a mushroom and swiss burger with a veggie patty. If I’m feeling guilty, I’ll put it on a lettuce bun. Unfortunately, I would not consider their burgers to be the best in town. The burgers tend to crumble after a few bites, and the fries can be a little too crispy, if you like a slightly soggy fry, like myself. On the other hand, it’s cheap as hell. Trust me! I could barely afford to eat this week, so I went to Big Al’s to mourn my empty bank account…which doesn’t make the most sense in hindsight.   Audrey Weiss can be reached at entertainment@collegian. com.

Pittsburgh mayor says Mac Miller wanted to invest in city youth programs By Bob Bauder The Tribune-Review

Blue Slide Park’s signature in-ground slide will have a fresh coat of blue epoxy in honor of Mac Miller, the Pittsburgh born rapper who died Friday at his home in Los Angeles, Mayor Bill Peduto said Monday. Peduto, who knew Miller personally, said he wants city workers to have the slide painted in time for Miller’s Tuesday night vigil, which is expected to draw thousands to the Squirrel Hill playground in Frick Park. Miller played in the park as a child and titled his 2011 album “Blue Slide Park.” “We can’t put it down during the rain,” Peduto said of the epoxy. “Hopefully there’s a little bit of a break tomorrow and we’ll have crews out there to be able to do it. If we’re not because of the weather, we’ll still get it done sometime this week.” The mayor said Miller

wanted to invest in Pittsburgh and talked with him “extensively” about proposals for after-school programs at city recreation centers and creating parks featuring blue slides. Blue slides, Peduto said, would indicate to the public that the park and surrounding neighborhood was a safe-zone for children and families. He said Miller also wanted to help finance “rec to tech” programs at recreation centers, featuring classes for kids to learn computer coding and other hightech skills. “In his memory we’re going to continue to work on those types of programs and hopefully get other local artists to be a part of it,” Peduto said. Miller, born Malcolm J. McCormick, grew up in Pittsburgh’s Point Breeze neighborhood. He attended Allderdice High School. Peduto, who lives in Point Breeze, said Miller’s parents are neighbors. “A lot of people got to know this guy, not just as a star, but on

his way up as a really good person,” Peduto said. “(Allegheny County Executive) Rich Fitzgerald was his baseball coach. His connections go all throughout this city. He had a very very compassionate heart when it came to what he wanted to invest back into Pittsburgh.” Peduto offered condolences to Miller’s family and friends, some of whom have suggested they rename Blue Slide Park after the rapper. A Pittsburgh ordinance requires a wait of three years after someone dies and approval of City Council before a city facility can be renamed in their honor, Peduto said. He said he’s willing to discuss renaming the park, but said Miller’s family and friends should first have time to mourn. “I would not oppose it, let me put it to you that way, but I do believe it should come from the community itself,” the mayor said.
