Referendum removed from ballot
Smoking Â ban Â removed, Â sustainability Â remains By Alexandria Zamecnik Assistant Â News Â Editor
The Â Whitewater Â Student Â Gov-Â ernment Â election Â ballot Â offers Â more Â than Â just Â two Â slates Â running Â against Â each Â other. Â Before Â the Â WSG Â Senate Â meet-Â ing Â on Â March Â 17, Â two Â non-Âbinding Â referendums Â were Â to Â be Â placed Â on Â the Â ballot. Â Non-Âbinding Â referen-Â dums Â are Â meant Â to Â serve Â as Â advisers Â to Â gauge Â public Â opinion.
The Â referendums Â originally Â to Â be Â placed Â on Â the Â ballot Â were: 1. Â Would Â you Â be Â willing Â to Â pay Â a Â separate Â segregated Â fee Â ($5/per Â student/semester) Â to Â support Â a Â sus-Â tainability/green Â fund? Â 2. Â Would Â you Â support Â a Â cam-Â pus-Âwide Â tobacco Â ban Â for Â the Â Uni-Â versity Â of Â Wisconsin-ÂWhitewater? During Â the Â senate Â meeting Â on Â March Â 17, Â the Â senate Â voted Â to Â re-Â move Â the Â referendum Â asking Â stu-Â dents Â if Â they Â supported Â a Â campus-Â wide Â tobacco Â ban, Â leaving Â only Â the Â sustainability Â referendum. Jonathan Â Fera, Â
intergovernmental Â affairs Â director, Â was Â responsible Â for Â the Â tobacco Â referendum Â that Â was Â unanimously Â approved Â on Â March Â 3. Â Two Â weeks Â later Â he Â asked Â the Â senate Â to Â remove Â it. â€œItâ€™s Â [Tobacco Â Referendum] Â re-Â ally Â vague,â€? Â Fera Â said. Â â€œI Â feel Â as Â if Â there Â is Â more Â that Â can Â be Â done.â€? Fera Â said Â one Â of Â his Â biggest Â concerns Â was Â that Â the Â polls Â are Â anonymous. Â The Â ballot Â would Â not Â be Â able Â to Â tell Â the Â difference Â be-Â tween Â a Â freshman Â and Â senior. â€œI Â feel Â like Â I Â jumped Â the Â gun,â€? Â Fera Â said. Â â€œI Â apologize Â for Â wasting Â
[senatesâ€™] Â time Â and Â making Â [senate] Â put Â on Â the Â ballot Â unanimously.â€? vote.â€? Â While Â the Â tobacco Â referendum Â After Â a Â roll Â call Â vote, Â 12 Â was Â removed, Â the Â sustainability Â senators Â voted Â to Â remove Â the Â refer-Â referendum Â re-Â endum Â from Â the Â ballot. Â Two Â sena-Â mained Â on Â the Â tors Â voted Â against Â the Â removal. ballot. Parliamentarian Â Johanna Â Klay Â Â Sustainabil-Â voted Â against Â the Â removal Â of Â the Â ity Â Director Â of Â referendum. WSG, Â Alexan-Â â€œI Â believe Â that Â there Â are Â students Â dra Â Labonte, Â said Â that Â could Â potentially Â voice Â their Â the Â sustainabil-Â Labonte opinion Â better Â in Â a Â simple Â referen-Â ity Â referendum Â dum Â form Â on Â the Â ballot,â€? Â Klay Â said. Â Â might Â be Â right Â â€œIt Â would Â be Â an Â injustice Â to Â those Â for Â Whitewater, Â and Â WSG Â is Â gaug-Â students Â if Â the Â referendum Â was Â re-Â See Â Ballot Â Page Â 3 pealed Â unanimously Â when Â it Â was Â

Pow-Âwow: Drums, Â dance Â and Â regalia
By Alexandria Zamecnik Assistant Â News Â Editor
During Â pow-Âwows, Â Native Â Americans Â wear Â traditional Â cloth-Â ing Â depending Â on Â which Â tribe Â their Â ancestors Â belonged Â to. Â Â San Â Carlos Â Apache Â tribesmen Â Ronnie Â Preston Â wears Â bear Â claws Â in Â representation Â of Â the Â spirit Â that Â he Â said Â still Â dances Â with Â him Â ev-Â ery Â day. Â Preston, Â a Â member Â of Â the Â Mil-Â waukee Â Native Â American Â Dance Â 7URXSH ZKLFK FRQVLVWV RI ÂżYH different Â Native Â Americans Â who Â hail Â from Â three Â separate Â tribes, Â visited Â UW-ÂWhitewater Â on Â March Â WR H[SODLQ WKH VLJQLÂżFDQFH RI pow-Âwows. Â Pow-Âwows Â have Â tradition-Â DOO\EHHQGHÂżQHGDVJDWKHULQJVRI North Â American Â natives. Â Modern Â pow-Âwows, Â however, Â now Â serve Â as Â a Â method Â of Â socialization, Â Preston Â said. Â â€œPow-Âwows Â are Â a Â way Â to Â gather, Â make Â new Â friends, Â greet Â old Â friends, Â sing Â songs, Â dance Â and Â taste Â other Â Native Â American Â foods,â€? Â Preston Â said. Â The Â troupeâ€™s Â colorful Â attire, Â commonly Â known Â as Â regalia Â in Â the Â Native Â American Â community, Â is Â hand-Âcrafted. Â The Â regalia Â changes Â according Â to Â tribe Â location. Â Â Northern Â tribes Â based Â in Â the Â Midwest Â produce Â regalia Â with Â modest Â colors Â and Â thicker Â layers Â to Â represent Â the Â colder Â weather, Â while Â southern Â tribes Â create Â vivid Â
colors Â and Â shapes Â to Â represent Â the Â warmth. Â Â Preston Â said Â he Â was Â taught Â how Â to Â dance Â and Â sing Â in Â pow-Â wows Â at Â a Â young Â age. â€œWe Â start Â children Â out Â as Â soon Â as Â they Â can Â walk,â€? Â Preston Â said. Â â€œWe Â get Â them Â in Â regalia Â as Â soon Â as Â LWÂżWVDQGWHDFKWKHPKRZWRVLQJ and Â dance.â€? The Â most Â important Â part Â of Â a Â pow-Âwow Â is Â the Â drum, Â Preston Â said. Â â€œThe Â drum Â is Â called Â the Â heart-Â beat Â of Â Mother Â Earth,â€? Â Preston Â said. Â â€œThis Â is Â very Â important Â to Â Native Â Americans. Â Without Â the Â drum, Â you Â canâ€™t Â have Â a Â pow-Â wow.â€? More Â than Â a Â year Â ago, Â Mai Â Yer Â Yang, Â student Â services Â coordina-Â tor Â at Â Career Â & Â Leadership, Â de-Â cided Â to Â host Â the Â Native Â Pride Â lec-Â ture Â series Â because Â she Â said Â thatâ€™s Â what Â the Â students Â wanted. â€œWe Â wanted Â to Â do Â the Â pow-Â wow Â because Â people Â think Â of Â it Â as Â a Â dance, Â but Â it Â is Â actually Â more Â than Â that,â€? Â Yang Â said. Â â€œI Â want Â students Â to Â appreciate Â the Â native Â culture Â and Â really Â understand Â the Â meaning Â of Â a Â pow-Âwow.â€? Â The Â Milwaukee Â Native Â Amer-Â ican Â Dance Â Troupe Â displayed Â sev-Â eral Â different Â types Â of Â dances Â for Â the Â audience. Â Each Â dance Â had Â a Â different Â meaning. The Â men Â and Â women Â shared Â the Â largest Â difference. â€œWhen Â warriors Â went Â to Â bat-Â
tle, Â the Â women Â would Â dance Â for Â their Â men,â€? Â Preston Â said. Â â€œThey Â would Â dance Â in Â the Â four Â cardinal Â directions Â waiting Â for Â the Â return Â of Â the Â men. Â They Â would Â dance Â XQWLO WKHLU VLJQLÂżFDQW RWKHU FDPH home.â€? Â The Â menâ€™s Â traditional Â dances Â mimic Â the Â jobs Â they Â would Â have Â had Â in Â earlier Â years.

Â Some Â students Â were Â asked Â to Â attend Â the Â event Â for Â class Â credit. Â Others Â went Â for Â a Â new Â experience. Â Marlee Â Whiteside, Â sophomore Â and Â Media Â Arts Â & Â Game Â Devel-Â opment Â major, Â said Â she Â mostly Â went Â because Â of Â class, Â but Â she Â didnâ€™t Â have Â to. â€œThereâ€™s Â always Â the Â option Â to Â come Â in, Â sit Â down Â and Â sign Â your Â name,â€?

Student improves industry Senior Â brings Â gaming Â summit Â to Â Midwest By Michael Riley News Â Editor
Senior Â Travis Â Garski Â had Â one Â major Â concern Â on Â his Â mind Â that Â lead Â to Â an Â organized Â effort Â to Â bring Â together Â students Â from Â across Â the Â region. Â Â Garski Â said Â he Â was Â worried Â about Â his Â future Â employment Â un-Â certainty Â in Â the Â video Â game Â indus-Â try. His Â conerns Â led Â to Â the Â Mid-Â west Â Game Â Developers Â Summit Â (MGDS), Â which Â focuses Â on Â local Â Midwest Â developers Â coming Â to-Â gether Â to Â share Â their Â knowledge Â and Â experiences Â with Â profession-Â als, Â peers Â and Â aspiring Â develop-Â ers. Â Â Currently, Â MGDS Â has Â launched Â a Â Kickstarter Â in Â an Â at-Â tempt Â to Â raise Â $8,000 Â to Â help Â fund Â the Â weekend. Â Â With Â less Â than Â three Â weeks Â to Â go, Â it Â is Â more Â than Â half Â way Â to Â its Â goal. Â Â People Â can Â do-Â nate Â anywhere Â from Â $1 Â to Â more Â than Â $250. Â The Â more Â someone Â donates Â the Â more Â perks Â they Â will Â receive Â at Â the Â conference, Â ranging Â from Â VIP Â passes Â to Â MGDS Â swag. Â Garski Â said Â he Â has Â spoken Â to Â potential Â sponsors Â in Â hopes Â to Â raise Â money Â for Â the Â event. Â Â â€œWe Â are Â optimistic Â that Â we Â will Â reach Â and Â exceed Â our Â Kick-Â starter Â goal,â€? Â Garski Â said. Â Â â€œIf Â
the Â Kickstarter Â should Â fail, Â weâ€™ll Â evaluate Â our Â options Â and Â decide Â how Â to Â best Â proceed Â forward Â with Â MGDS.â€? Garski Â said Â game Â developers Â conferences Â are Â an Â incredible Â way Â to Â network Â and Â learn Â from Â profes-Â sionals, Â but Â the Â majority Â of Â these Â were Â not Â close Â to Â Wisconsin, Â and Â the Â cost Â to Â attend Â was Â not Â possible Â for Â the Â average Â college Â student. Â Â Last Â year, Â Garski Â helped Â or-Â ganize Â the Â Wisconsin Â Game Â De-Â velopers Â Summit Â held Â at Â UW-Â Milwaukee, Â where Â 300 Â people Â attended Â with Â 40 Â speakers Â from Â GLIIHUHQWÂżHOGVLQWKHYLGHRJDP-Â ing Â industry. Â Â â€œThe Â exposure Â our Â event Â gives Â students Â will Â help Â them Â learn Â in-Â dustry Â standard Â practices, Â expand Â WKHLU QHWZRUN VLJQLÂżFDQWO\ LQ-Â crease Â job Â opportunities Â and Â let Â them Â bump Â elbows Â with Â some Â name Â developers,â€? Â Garski Â said. Â Â Although Â this Â helped Â many Â aspiring Â video Â game Â industry Â stu-Â dents Â in Â Wisconsin, Â there Â was Â a Â desire Â from Â the Â surrounding Â area. Â Â Garski, Â along Â with Â the Â help Â of Â others, Â widened Â and Â re-Âbranded Â the Â event Â to Â the Â entire Â Midwest. Â Â Garksi Â said Â he Â described Â his Â work Â with Â MGDS Â as Â a Â roller-Â coaster. Â â€œIn Â a Â word, Â it Â has Â been Â stress-Â ful,â€? Â Garksi Â said. Â â€œWhen Â it Â comes Â time Â to Â actually Â hosting Â the Â event, Â though, Â it Â simply Â feels Â amaz-Â ing. Â Â Seeing Â all Â those Â aspiring Â DQG KLJKSURÂżOH JDPH GHYHORS-Â
ers Â gathering Â together Â because Â of Â what Â I Â helped Â accomplish Â is Â one Â of Â the Â most Â humbling Â feelings Â ever. Â Â It Â drives Â me Â to Â make Â the Â next Â yearâ€™s Â event Â even Â bigger Â and Â better.â€? Â Junior Â media Â arts Â & Â game Â de-Â velopment Â major Â (MAGD) Â Kath-Â erine Â Stull Â said Â the Â MAGD Â de-Â partment Â has Â grown Â substantially Â since Â she Â came Â to Â UW-ÂWhitewa-Â ter Â last Â year. Â Â Many Â people Â want Â to Â dive Â into Â the Â gaming Â industry Â and Â leave Â the Â university Â with Â as Â much Â experience Â as Â possible, Â Stull Â said.

Students Â should Â use Â spring Â break Â to Â learn Royal Purple Editorial Â Staff Â Opinion
Spring Â Break Â is Â a Â time Â for Â students Â to Â celebrate Â their Â week-Âlong Â freedom Â from Â re-Â sponsibilities. Â As Â MTV Â has Â been Â showing Â us Â since Â 1986, Â the Â year Â they Â began Â covering Â Spring Â Break Â live, Â many Â students Â head Â down Â WRZDUPEHDFKHVDQGKDYHWKHLUÂżOORIDOFR hol Â and Â regrettable Â decisions. Although Â this Â may Â seem Â like Â an Â attrac-Â tive Â idea Â for Â a Â vacation, Â there Â are Â other Â op-Â portunities Â for Â Spring Â Break Â that Â students Â should Â take Â advantage Â of. Â College Â is Â a Â great Â time Â to Â have Â fun Â and Â go Â out Â with Â your Â friends, Â as Â evidenced Â by Â Whitewaterâ€™s Â thriving Â bars, Â but Â it Â also Â is Â a Â time Â for Â students Â to Â learn Â both Â inside Â and Â outside Â the Â classroom. By Â volunteering, Â students Â can Â learn Â a Â plethora Â of Â valuable Â life Â lessons Â including Â KDUGZRUNHPSDWK\KXPLOLW\VDFULÂżFHDQG compassion. Â These Â values Â can Â be Â of Â great Â help Â to Â stu-Â GHQWVZKRZLOOVRRQÂżQGDFDUHHUDQGHQWHU the Â workforce. Â UW-ÂWhitewater Â offers Â a Â few Â alterna-Â tive Â Spring Â Break Â opportunities Â that Â students Â would Â be Â wise Â to Â utilize. For Â example, Â UW-ÂWhitewater Â Habitat Â for Â Humanity Â offers Â a Â Spring Â Break Â trip Â ev-Â ery Â year. Â This Â year, Â participants Â will Â travel Â to Â Albany, Â Ga. Â

This Â provides Â students Â an Â opportunity Â for Â fun Â in Â the Â sun Â while Â helping Â those Â in Â need. Â Grades Â can Â be Â a Â source Â of Â stress Â for Â stu-Â dents Â in Â college, Â and Â volunteering Â can Â help Â with Â that Â as Â well. A Â study Â by Â Amelia Â Parnell Â of Â Florida Â State Â University Â in Â 2010 Â titled Â â€œThe Â relation-Â ship Â between Â volunteering Â and Â undergradu-Â ate Â academic Â achievement Â at Â Florida Â State Â University,â€? Â found Â students Â who Â volunteer Â
during Â their Â time Â at Â college Â usually Â have Â a Â higher Â GPA Â than Â students Â who Â do Â not. For Â students Â interested Â in Â learning Â about Â United Â States Â history, Â UW-ÂWhitewater Â also Â offers Â a Â unique Â travel Â study Â opportunity Â dur-Â ing Â Spring Â Break. Â The Â social Â justice Â travel Â study Â takes Â UW-Â Whitewater Â students Â to Â places Â with Â strong Â civil Â rights Â histories Â such Â as Â Cincinnati, Â Montgomery, Â Selma Â and Â Jackson. Â Students Â can Â take Â this Â trip Â either Â for Â credit Â or Â non-Â credit. Â Students Â will Â learn Â about Â hisitoric Â events Â in Â those Â cities Â while Â also Â attending Â museums Â
and Â other Â landmarks Â along Â the Â way. This Â is Â a Â great Â way Â for Â students Â to Â learn Â and Â enjoy Â themselves Â in Â beautiful Â historic Â cities Â across Â the Â United Â States. Â In Â addition Â to Â opportunities Â given Â by Â the Â university, Â groups Â like Â the Â United Â Way Â also Â provide Â alternative Â Spring Â Break Â trips Â for Â those Â looking Â to Â volunteer. Â According Â to Â their Â website, Â destinations Â include Â Washington Â D.C., Â the Â New Â Jersey Â shore, Â San Â Francisco Â and Â others. Â All Â of Â these Â destinations Â have Â volunteer Â opportunities, Â including Â a Â trip Â to Â Biloxi, Â Miss., Â a Â community Â that Â was Â ravaged Â by Â powerful Â storms Â and Â is Â still Â trying Â to Â rebuild. Â Although Â some Â of Â these Â destinations Â may Â not Â blow Â your Â mind Â with Â bikinis Â and Â gallons Â of Â alcohol, Â they Â all Â provide Â unique Â oppor-Â tunities Â that Â allow Â students Â to Â help Â those Â in Â need, Â grow Â as Â a Â person Â and Â can Â be Â attractive Â on Â a Â rĂŠsumĂŠ. Â This Â should Â be Â something Â that Â is Â more Â important Â to Â students Â than Â emulating Â Spring Â Break Â coverage Â on Â television Â and Â getting Â EODFNRXW GUXQN IRU WKUHH WR ÂżYH GD\V LQ DQ unfamiliar Â environment. Â Students Â interested Â in Â more Â information Â on Â the Â social Â justice Â travel Â study Â in Â 2015 Â should Â contact Â Kari Â Borne Â at Â the Â Continu-Â LQJ (GXFDWLRQ 2IÂżFH DW RU firstname.lastname@example.org. email@example.com

Letters to the Editor Lecture went beyond â€˜liberal-Âleaning presentationâ€™ I Â am Â writing Â to Â discuss Â the Â viral Â video Â I Â took Â of Â a Â recent Â lecture Â in Â my Â GenEd Â 130, Â in Â which Â candidate Â for Â Milwaukee Â alderman Â Eyon Â Biddle Â is Â featured Â speaking Â about Â Re-Â publican Â racism Â and Â â€œwhite Â rage.â€? First, Â I Â want Â to Â point Â out Â that Â Mr. Â Biddle Â LV D FDQGLGDWH IRU SXEOLF RIÂżFH DV ZHOO DV D ZHOO NQRZQ SXEOLF ÂżJXUH LQ 0LOZDXNHH His Â conduct Â in Â a Â public Â setting Â is Â under Â more Â scrutiny Â than Â that Â of Â an Â average Â private Â citi-Â zen, Â because Â he Â has Â chosen Â to Â make Â himself Â DSXEOLFÂżJXUH I Â did Â not Â record Â my Â professor, Â as Â she Â is Â a Â private Â citizen, Â nor Â did Â I Â record Â any Â stu-Â dents. Â Once Â Eyon Â Biddle Â began Â to Â make Â his Â outrageous Â remarks, Â it Â was Â my Â duty Â to Â let Â his Â constituents Â know Â what Â their Â candidate Â really Â believes. Â Since Â Mr. Â Biddle Â wanted Â to Â have Â an Â honest Â discussion Â about Â the Â issues Â he Â feels Â strongly Â about, Â he Â should Â have Â no Â
objection Â to Â me Â videoing Â him Â and Â posting Â it. Â Now, Â his Â lecture Â is Â receiving Â more Â discus-Â sion Â than Â he Â could Â have Â imagined. Â Further, Â by Â allowing Â his Â views Â to Â be Â heard Â by Â a Â national Â audience, Â I Â have Â been Â accused Â of Â not Â believing Â in Â the Â First Â Amend-Â ment. Â To Â that Â point, Â I Â say Â there Â is Â not Â a Â stron-Â ger Â believer Â in Â the Â First Â Amendment Â than Â myself, Â as Â a Â strict Â constitutionalist. Â I Â believe Â Eyon Â Biddle Â has Â every Â right Â to Â say Â anything Â he Â wants. Â My Â objection, Â and Â the Â reason Â I Â chose Â to Â shoot Â the Â video, Â is Â his Â lecture Â went Â beyond Â simply Â a Â liberal-Âleaning Â presentation. Â He Â used Â his Â forum Â to Â accuse Â people Â who Â donâ€™t Â agree Â with Â him Â of Â being Â racist, Â and Â to Â say Â the Â problems Â of Â society Â today Â are Â simply Â the Â result Â of Â Republican Â racism. Â If Â this Â is Â what Â 0U%LGGOHEHOLHYHVWKDQWKDWLVÂżQHIRUKLP to Â say;Íž Â but Â in Â a Â classroom Â setting, Â a Â candi-Â
GDWHIRURIÂżFHFDQQRWVD\VRPHWKLQJVRLQDF curate Â and Â expect Â no Â repercussion. Â Had Â the Â video Â not Â been Â taped Â and Â then Â gone Â national, Â a Â counter Â perspective Â would Â not Â have Â been Â invited Â to Â give Â a Â guest Â lecture Â to Â the Â class, Â and Â Mr. Â Biddleâ€™s Â lecture Â would Â have Â been Â the Â last Â word Â on Â the Â issue. Â Now, Â in Â credit Â to Â the Â professor, Â a Â conser-Â vative Â speaker Â will Â come Â into Â the Â class Â and Â provide Â an Â alternative Â view Â to Â Mr. Â Biddleâ€™s Â belief Â that Â the Â Republican Â Party Â is Â fueled Â by Â â€œwhite Â rage.â€? Â There Â is Â no Â question Â in Â my Â mind Â the Â classroom Â should Â be Â a Â safe Â envi-Â URQPHQWKRZHYHUDSXEOLFÂżJXUHDQGFDQGL GDWHIRURIÂżFHVKRXOGQRWH[SHFWKLVZRUGV especially Â if Â they Â are Â intolerant Â and Â untrue, Â to Â go Â undocumented Â for Â the Â public Â at Â large Â to Â see. Â This Â was Â not Â a Â lecture Â open Â to Â the Â uni-Â versity Â at Â large, Â but Â rather Â a Â lecture Â in Â a Â re-Â
quired Â class Â with Â no Â counter Â balance, Â until Â now. Â The Â community Â and Â parents Â deserve Â to Â know Â what Â students Â are Â being Â taught Â in Â class, Â because Â their Â money Â and Â the Â univer-Â sityâ€™s Â credibility Â is Â on Â the Â line. Â Knowledge Â is Â power, Â and Â having Â too Â much Â information Â is Â never Â a Â bad Â thing. Â If Â one Â is Â opposed Â to Â me Â taping Â the Â lecture, Â then Â they Â obviously Â realize Â how Â radical Â it Â was, Â or Â else Â they Â wouldnâ€™t Â mind Â the Â public Â knowing Â about Â it. Â Therefore, Â I Â support Â Mr. Â Biddleâ€™s Â right Â to Â speak Â his Â mind Â wholeheartedly, Â however Â the Â public Â has Â a Â right Â to Â know Â what Â is Â being Â said Â E\ D FDQGLGDWH IRU RIÂżFH WR LPSUHVVLRQDEOH minds Â in Â a Â required Â course, Â and Â decide Â for Â themselves Â if Â it Â was Â appropriate Â or Â not.

Biddle Â unfairly Â criticized
Brooks wrong to record speaker
The Â characterization Â by Â Fox Â News Â of Â the Â events Â reported Â on Â in Â the Â Royal Â Purpleâ€™s Â March Â 5 Â article Â â€œFrom Â UW-ÂW Â classroom Â to Â national Â mediaâ€? Â suggests Â that Â something Â inap-Â propriate Â happened Â in Â the Â classroom. Â Â In Â citing Â the Â UW Â System Â policy Â on Â political Â campaign Â activities, Â the Â Royal Â Purple Â writer Â suggests Â that Â this Â policy Â may Â have Â been Â violated, Â when Â that Â is Â clearly Â not Â the Â case. Eyon Â Biddle Â was Â invited Â to Â speak Â on Â a Â topic Â relevant Â to Â the Â class. Â Â Since Â he Â is Â active Â in Â Democratic Â Party Â politics Â at Â the Â county Â level, Â it Â is Â reasonable Â to Â expect Â that Â he Â will Â speak Â from Â that Â political Â perspective. Â Â Further, Â it Â is Â not Â incumbent Â upon Â any Â speaker Â to Â represent Â the Â positions Â of Â other Â parties, Â including Â the Â Re-Â publican Â Party, Â the Â Libertarian Â Party, Â the Â Green Â Party, Â or Â the Â Socialist Â Party. In Â some Â cases Â Biddle Â presented Â a Â Demo-Â cratic Â interpretation Â of Â state Â and Â national Â poli-Â tics Â since Â 2010. Â Â In Â other Â cases, Â such Â as Â that Â about Â redistricting, Â he Â presented Â facts Â that Â Republicans Â publicly Â embrace Â as Â strategy. Â Unfortunately, Â the Â Royal Â Purple Â did Â not Â ac-Â curately Â represent Â Biddleâ€™s Â statement. Â Â Biddle Â explained Â that Â the Â result Â of Â the Â Republican-Âled Â state Â legislatureâ€™s Â redistricting Â in Â 2010 Â was Â to Â create Â districts Â that Â are Â either Â predominantly Â Republican Â or Â predominantly Â Democrat, Â elim-Â inating Â districts Â where Â there Â was Â a Â more Â even Â split Â between Â the Â two Â major Â parties.

Like Â many Â others Â on Â campus, Â I Â am Â trou-Â bled Â by Â the Â incident Â involving Â former Â Milwau-Â kee Â county Â supervisor Â Eyon Â Biddleâ€™s Â visit Â to Â Monique Â Listonâ€™s Â general Â education Â class, Â but Â perhaps Â for Â different Â reasons Â than Â some. Â Lis-Â ton Â had Â asked Â Biddle Â to Â speak Â to Â the Â topic Â of Â power Â and Â politics, Â and Â in Â the Â course Â of Â his Â re-Â marks Â he Â attributed Â Republican Â success Â in Â the Â 2010 Â election Â to Â â€œwhite Â rage.â€? Â Biddleâ€™s Â analy-Â sis Â may Â have Â been Â simplistic, Â overgeneralized, Â or Â wrong, Â but Â what Â disturbs Â me Â more Â about Â this Â incident Â are Â the Â actions Â of Â Kyle Â Brooks, Â the Â College Â Republican Â freshman Â who Â decided Â to Â make Â this Â a Â public Â affair. Brooks Â took Â offense Â to Â Biddleâ€™s Â remarks Â and Â clandestinely Â recorded Â Biddle Â on Â his Â cell Â phone Â and Â distributed Â his Â recording Â on Â the Â Internet. Â I Â am Â a Â 63-Âyear-Âold Â man Â who Â may Â be Â a Â bit Â old Â fashioned, Â but Â back Â in Â the Â day Â it Â would Â have Â been Â considered Â rude Â to Â secretly Â photograph Â or Â videotape Â another Â without Â their Â permission. Â I Â realize Â that Â todayâ€™s Â youth Â have Â grown Â up Â in Â a Â â€œgotchaâ€? Â culture Â where Â this Â is Â normative, Â feeling Â entitled Â to Â share Â most Â any-Â thing Â with Â the Â rest Â of Â the Â world. Â But Â it Â leaves Â me Â wondering, Â why Â canâ€™t Â a Â student Â like Â Brooks Â simply Â speak Â up Â in Â class, Â or Â talk Â to Â the Â profes-Â sor Â afterwards Â and Â ask Â for Â time Â to Â rebut Â the Â re-Â marks? Â Nowadays Â students Â seem Â to Â think Â they Â are Â entitled Â to Â bypass Â this Â apparently Â anachro-Â nistic Â element Â of Â human Â communication Â and Â
goal Â of Â the Â Republican Â Party Â at Â the Â national Â level Â was Â to Â create Â more Â districts Â that Â favor Â Re-Â publican Â Candidates Â (check Â out Â â€œRedmapâ€?). Â Â Biddle Â cited Â other Â facts, Â such Â as Â the Â shift Â in Â funding Â from Â public Â schools Â to Â charter Â schools, Â and Â the Â effects Â on Â campaign Â advertising Â of Â the Â Supreme Â Court Â decision Â on Â â€œCitizens Â Unitedâ€? Â to Â show Â that Â the Â political Â climate Â in Â Wisconsin Â has Â become Â polarized Â since Â the Â 2010 Â elections. Â Â In Â some Â cases Â he Â presented Â a Â Democratic Â inter-Â pretation Â of Â events, Â which Â makes Â sense, Â given Â his Â position, Â and Â in Â other Â cases, Â he Â was Â just Â lay-Â ing Â out Â the Â facts. Â He Â was Â not Â out Â of Â line. The Â instructor Â encouraged, Â expected, Â and Â required Â critical Â responses Â to Â the Â speakerâ€™s Â presentation, Â as Â reported Â by Â the Â Royal Â Purple. Â Â The Â student Â who Â posted Â the Â recording Â on Â social Â media Â made Â an Â unfortunate Â choice Â that Â took Â on Â a Â life Â of Â itâ€™s Â own Â when Â Fox Â got Â involved. Â Just Â as Â there Â is Â an Â obligation Â to Â critically Â evaluate Â statements Â by Â guest Â speakers, Â there Â is Â an Â ob-Â ligation Â to Â critically Â evaluate Â the Â characteriza-Â tion Â of Â events Â as Â covered Â by Â media Â outlets Â such Â as Â Fox Â News.

Â Itâ€™s Â ac-Â tually Â an Â easier Â way Â to Â live. Â And Â ultimate-Â ly, Â it Â saves Â lives.â€? Â This Â inspiring Â quote Â was Â spoken Â by Â Ellen Â Page, Â as Â she Â talks Â about Â how Â harsh Â people Â and Â their Â words Â are Â to Â others. Â The Â bullying Â epidemic Â has Â grown Â to Â a Â new Â extreme Â within Â the Â last Â few Â years Â with Â about Â 4,400 Â kids Â committing Â sui-Â cide Â every Â year Â because Â of Â it. Â Although Â the Â majority Â of Â bullying Â usually Â occurs Â throughout Â high Â school, Â it Â still Â exists Â in Â middle Â and Â elementary Â schools, Â and Â even Â colleges. Â â€œWhen Â it Â comes Â to Â bullying Â in Â college, Â according Â to Â a Â Health Â Day Â News Â study Â in Â 2012, Â 15 Â percent Â of Â college Â stu-Â dents Â reported Â being Â bullied Â and Â nearly Â 22 Â percent Â reported Â being Â cyberbullied. Â The Â study Â found Â that Â when Â it Â comes Â to Â bul-Â lying Â in Â college, Â 38 Â percent Â of Â students Â knew Â someone Â who Â was Â cyberbullied, Â and Â
about Â 9 Â percent Â said Â they Â had Â cyberbul-Â lied.â€? Â Â Of Â those Â who Â said Â theyâ€™d Â been Â cyber-Â bullied, Â 25 Â percent Â said Â it Â was Â through Â a Â social Â networking Â site, Â 21 Â percent Â through Â texting, Â 16 Â percent Â through Â email Â and Â 13 Â percent Â through Â instant Â messages. Â We Â need Â to Â be Â aware Â of Â how Â are Â words Â and Â actions Â affect Â others. The Â University Â of Â Wisconsin-ÂWhite-Â waterâ€™s Â confession Â page Â on Â Facebook Â is Â where Â we Â can Â see Â a Â large Â amount Â of Â bully-Â ing Â on Â campus. Â Over Â half Â of Â young Â adults Â have Â been Â exposed Â to Â cyber Â bullying. Â Any-Â one Â is Â able Â to Â access Â this Â page Â and Â read Â the Â nasty Â remarks Â that Â people Â make. Â Although Â the Â original Â posts Â are Â anonymous, Â it Â is Â still Â bullying. Â An Â example Â of Â some Â of Â the Â bul-Â lying Â taking Â place Â on Â the Â confession Â page Â is Â a Â comment Â that Â said, Â â€œIf Â one Â more Â Tri Â Pig Â gets Â in Â my Â way Â at Â the Â gym Â in Â going Â to Â call Â Old Â McDonald Â and Â tell Â him Â to Â wrangle Â
his Â hogs Â up.â€? Â Some Â of Â these Â posts Â are Â very Â inappropriate Â and Â shouldnâ€™t Â be Â repeated, Â but Â if Â you Â go Â look Â for Â yourself Â you Â can Â read Â some Â of Â the Â nasty Â remarks Â people Â have Â to Â say. Â These Â words Â that Â they Â use Â to Â describe Â how Â they Â are Â feeling Â is Â unjust Â and Â cruel. Â People Â need Â to Â watch Â what Â they Â say Â because Â they Â never Â know Â what Â their Â words Â can Â lead Â to. Â Â So Â I Â ask Â you, Â Whitewater Â students, Â what Â can Â you Â do Â to Â prevent Â bullying Â on Â campus? Â Â

Students can see ‘Where Dreams Begin’ By Abrielle Backhaus Arts & Rec Editor
By Signe Trewyn Staff Writer
Roberta A. Fiskum Art Gallery’s new- est exhibit includes Black Student Union artifacts and black history memorabilia. BSU President Connell Patterson III said the exhibit is a tribute to the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and designed to inform students of UW-Whitewater’s Af- rican American history. The “Where Dreams Begin” exhibit will be featured in the gallery from April 1 to 14. Patterson said 45 years of BSU history will be displayed in the exhibit. Patterson “It [the display] pays homage to the alumni,” Patterson said. The exhibit also will display T-shirts from past alumni, as well as articles, pic- tures and an original playwright script a student wrote.

Martin Luther King Jr. visited UW- Whitewater in 1961 to give a speech about civil rights and equality for black individ- uals, Patterson said. Patterson said visitors can see how long the organization has been going on, and it is a great way to recognize the or- ganization and what its members have done throughout the years during the Civil Rights Movement and Jim Crow laws. “I would say my favorite part of being involved with BSU is that I am involved with the history of African Americans, and it impacted me as person and a Afri- can-American individual,” Patterson said. Assistant University Center Direc- tor Kim Adams has been supervising the art gallery since 1995, and although they
have seven exhibits during each academic year, there hasn’t been one quite like this. Adams said she was happy to collabo- rate with BSU for the “Where Dreams Begin” exhibit. ³7KH VWDII LV VLJQL¿ cantly involved with the entire exhibit and they Adams do much outreach to BSU,” Adams said.

Biographer shares stories of Rolling with the Stones By Nat Edson Staff Writer
The “Beggar’s Banquet” was a “fanzine” that catered to those hungry for information about the rock mega-group the Rolling Stones. A fan-based magazine lasting nearly two decades with a worldwide subscription, it covered topics other media couldn’t, contain- ing within its pages knowledge about the band other sources never matched. It had detailed interviews and a look at the musician’s per- sonal life. The “fanzine” didn’t have a large staff or even a staff at all. It had just one man who did everything: from writing the stories, to laying out the pages, printing it and sending it out through snail mail. His name was Bill German, and he was 16 years old. “I wanted to be a journalist, and I was a big rock fan,” German said. “Perfect way to marry the two.” German will journey from his home in New York City to Whitewater to give a talk about his time running the fanzine, and the experiences he had with the Rolling Stones. He plans on sharing stories from his recently released book, including how his story got started. When German was beginning his sopho- more year in high school he said he already knew that he wanted to be a journalist. He car- ried with him a passion for the Rolling Stones as well, and when he realized that no real mag- azines would hire him, he decided to start his own fanzine. German lived and still lives in New York City, the same city as the Rolling Stones, so he was in close proximity to the group as they went about their daily lives. Three or four times a week the group would go out and hop between night clubs, clubs German was too young to get into. That didn’t stop German, though. The young man waited outside or contacted people KHNQHZZKRZHUHROGHQRXJKDQGJRW¿UVW hand accounts of what was going on with his

favorite rock group, making contacts and gath- ering the seeds needed for his “fanzine.” At night, German would sneak into the mimeograph room of his high school, what he called a “smelly, old fashioned way of print- ing.” There he would secretly print out his fanzine and wrap it up to be shipped to his subscribers. Word of mouth served to keep German going, getting people from a wide area inter- ested in reading his fanzine. Soon enough he had subscribers from other countries, sending three dollars to his bedroom for a year-long subscription. *HUPDQ ¿QDOO\ PHW WKH PXVLFLDQV DIWHU ¿QGLQJ RXW DERXW D SDUW\ WKH\ ZHUH JRLQJ WR attend. He said he rushed straight to them and handed them a copy of the most recent “Beg- gar’s Banquet” into their hands. “That was two days after my high school graduation,” German said. “The bigger event ZDVPHHWLQJWKH6WRQHV'H¿QLWHO\KDGDELJ ger impact on my life.” For the next 17 years, German spent al-
most every waking moment either working on his fanzine or being with the band. He went to almost every performance, formal or infor- mal. Sometimes he would be on the bus, or just headed over to the house to hang with them and their family. Drugs were a fairly present thing as Ger- man journeyed with the Rolling Stones, but he never partook. He said that as a journalist, he needed to be sober. Sometimes they would play songs just for him, sometimes songs that hadn’t been released yet, and he needed to be able to remember that clearly. “I had the occasional drink, though,” Ger- man said. “Jack Daniel’s came out of the taps of their houses.” This ability to stay separate from the tar- get of his writing is one of the reasons he was chosen to speak at UW-Whitewater by profes- sor Carol Terracina-Hartman. She petitioned to the Visiting Artists and Speakers program to fund bringing him to UW-W, who accepted, because he has a story she said is valuable to budding journalists.
“How do you write objectively when you are traveling with your sources?” Terracina- Hartman said. “How do you ‘party’ with your sources, but not really ‘party with them?’” Eventually, though, the ride came to an end. After 17 years the job had changed. By the mid-nineties the Rolling Stones hated each other, German said. The only thing that brought them back was the money. They still loved the music, but for the band it became more about the money. Ticket prices skyrocketed, and for German, getting inter- views with the musicians became a practice in frustration. Whereas once he merely had to call them up and jog over to their house, he now had to go through layers of publicists and managers and bodyguards. The technical aspect of the fanzine was be- ginning to wear on German, too. He described what an old history teacher had told him once: when you mix hobby and profession your job might get more fun, but your hobby will start to feel like work. At the age of 33, 17 years and 102 issues after his start, German ended the “Beggars Banquet.” He still journeys to Rolling Stones concerts now and then, but he said he has be- come slightly jaded to the whole experience. The writer will be making an appearance at UW-Whitewater to give a talk about his book and his experiences. The talk will take place at 7 p.m. on April 1 in Heide Hall, Room 101. “For anyone interested in music criticism, media history, and journalism,” Terracina- Hartman said. “[German’s] lecture will be not only valuable, but a lot of fun.” German, now 51, also has published a book chronicling his time with the band titled “Under Their Thumb: How a Nice Boy from Brooklyn Got Mixed Up with the Rolling Stones (and Lived to Tell About It).” In it he has recounted a myriad of stories from his two decades with the band, from the highest highs to the lowest lows.

Spanish composers featured Professor performs with classic guitar By Lauren Piek Staff Writer
Taught at a young age to play music, George Lindquist used his early-learned talent to create a career. Lindquist, a classical guitarist and professor at UW-Whitewater, will perform a faculty recital at 7:30 p.m. on March 20, at the Light Recital Hall. Tickets are $3 for students and those 18 and under, $4 for 65 and older, and $5 for the general public. Lindquist started out play- ing ukulele and Lindquist guitar, both taught to him by his father. As a teenager, and into his early 20s, Lindquist played guitar in multiple bands. He attended Carthage College with the hopes of earning a business degree. While at Carthage College, he couldn’t help but maintain his interest in playing guitar, Lindquist said. “I kept gravitating to the music classes,” Lindquist said. “I was for-
tunate because the chairman there at the time knew that I played guitar, and he said I could study guitar as long as it was classical guitar. I didn’t really know much about clas- sical guitar at the time.” Lindquist was granted permis- sion to study the art under classical guitarist James Yoghourtijan. He eventually earned a business degree and classical guitar degree from Carthage, Lindquist said. After graduating from Carthage College, Lindquist earned his mas- ter’s degree in musicology from the University of Wisconsin. He began teaching at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music in Milwau- LaMuro kee, where he still teaches part-time, Lindquist said. At UW-Whitewater, he teaches classical guitar, folk guitar classes and guitar ensemble Lindquist said. He tries to perform at a recital every year. “Faculty recitals allow students to see their professors perform on stage and see how it’s done,” As- sociate Director of Public Events, Leslie LaMuro said.
7KH¿UVWKDOIRIWKHUHFLWDOZLOO consist of solo performances from Lindquist. He will perform lute pieces—transcribed for classical guitar—along with pieces by John Duarte, Isaac Albeniz, Manuel de Falla, and Enrique Granados. “The audience will be amazed E\KRZIDVW*HRUJH¶V¿QJHUVÀ\ across the strings,” LaMuro said. “George picked pieces by some of the greatest composers for this recital.” In the second half of the recital, Lindquist will be joined by fellow music professor and cellist Ben- jamin Whitcomb. Lindquist had accompanied Whitcomb during his own faculty recital. Lindquist offers one piece of ad- vice for students pursuing a career in music: be versatile. “You need to know a lot of different styles of guitar,” Lindquist said. “If you only focus on one thing, like I have, it’s kind of tough. My advice is to know as much as you can about guitar. Always try to ¿QGVRPHRQHZKRFDQWHDFK\RX something new.”

Roles reversed, down goes DePauw Womenâ€™s Hoops By Kevin Cunningham Sports Â Editor
History Â repeated Â itself Â in Â one Â way, Â yet Â did Â not Â repeat Â itself Â in Â another Â on Â March Â 15 Â in Â the Â Elite Â Eight Â game Â against Â DePauw Â Uni-Â versity, Â when Â the Â UW-ÂWhitewater Â Warhawks Â defeated Â the Â Tigers, Â 88-Â 71, Â for Â the Â right Â to Â move Â on Â to Â the Â Final Â Four. Nearly Â one Â year Â ago, Â the Â â€™Hawks Â beat Â Hope Â College, Â 65-Â 50, Â to Â move Â on Â to Â the Â programâ€™s Â third Â Final Â Four Â in Â school Â history. Â By Â getting Â the Â best Â of Â DePauw Â this Â past Â weekend, Â the Â team Â made Â it Â back Â to Â the Â Final Â Four Â for Â the Â second Â straight Â season. Â History Â re-Â peated Â itself. In Â last Â yearâ€™s Â national Â champi-Â onship Â game, Â the Â Tigers Â defeated Â the Â â€™Hawks, Â 69-Â51, Â completing Â an Â undefeated Â season. Â In Â that Â sense, Â history Â did Â not Â repeat Â itself. â€œWe Â got Â our Â sweet Â revenge Â that Â we Â wanted Â to,â€? Â senior Â guard Â Mary Â Merg Â said. Â â€œThey Â have Â an Â extraor-Â dinary Â home Â record, Â and Â we Â had Â nothing Â to Â lose.â€? On Â DePauwâ€™s Â home Â court Â in Â Greencastle, Â Ind., Â the Â Tigers Â had Â lost Â two Â games Â in Â the Â previous Â eight Â seasons Â heading Â into Â Satur-Â dayâ€™s Â contest. Â The Â Warhawksâ€™ Â win Â also Â broke Â the Â Tigersâ€™ Â 36-Âgame Â home Â court Â winning Â streak.

Warhawk guard Mary Merg pushed the Warhawks through UW-Oshkosh and DePauw University on March 14 and 15. Merg recorded 21 points, nine rebounds and dished out six assists in the â€™Hawksâ€™ 88-71 win to propel the team to the Final Four.
