MSU officials work to make campus recycling accessible By Samantha Radecki email@example.com THE STATE NEWS ■■
According to Dave Smith, Earth Day represents many opportunities to reduce waste and recycle. And as reducing waste is a goal and part of MSU’s sustainability initiative, Smith, MSU’s waste reduction coordinator, said the accessibility for students to recycle on campus is apparent. “There are many ways to reduce our overall waste — recycling is just one of those components,” Smith said. He said MSU has recycling containers at Sparty’s Cafes and other convenient campus locations, promotes recycling and reuse and recently participated in RecycleMania, a recycling contest against other universities. MSU recycled 1,015,341 pounds from the beginning of February to the end of March in the contest. The MSU Surplus Store and Recycling Center facilitates reuse on campus, he said. Smith said the residence halls have recorded the highest recycling rates on campus. Although MSU’s bright green recycling bins are easy to spot, kinesiology junior Kristen Scali thinks students can do more.
Improving student participation is a goal for MSU recycling officials, who hope to bolster the school’s efforts and increase recycling on campus “I try to take advantage, but I think a lot of people don’t — even though they are right there,” she said, adding students might not be informed or might not care enough to pay attention to the resources available. Ann Erhardt, assistant director of the Offi ce of Campus Sustainability, said some students aren’t aware that recycling is beneficial. She said recycling is an

out ward act. Mak ing students aware in the “Be Spartan Green” campaign and making bins available to students — even if all aren’t versed on the importance of using them — are steps in the right direction. “Understanding the barriers that we have for throwing something in the recycle bin and not in the trash bin — it’s just getting more materials into a recycling station and not a landfi ll,” she said. She said improving student participation is her fi rst goal, which can be done with outreach and education. The question is how to make recycling convenient for everyone on campus, Erhardt said. “It is important for me on Earth Day that people become familiar with these issues that impact us,” she said. “(It’s) that awareness that we need to continue to put out there every year so we can continue to protect our resources for the planet.” State News reporter Robert Bondy contributed to this report.

River clean-up recognizes 2013 Earth Day By Brytanie Killebrew firstname.lastname@example.org THE STATE NEWS ■■
Earth Day is here, and some students spent the past weekend focusing on environmental clean-up on campus. Each year, Earth Day rolls around leaving many students contemplating the difference they’ve made on the environment. To focus on campus conservation, the Fisheries and Wildlife Club organized the Red Cedar Clean-Up, which took place Sunday. Club president and fisheries and wildlife junior Kirsten Johnson said students and members of East Lansing can participate in the biannual event. “We do it twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall,” Johnson said. “It’s something that the Fisheries and Wildlife Club thought would be a good way to reach out to the East Lansing community.” Although the goal is to remove as much litter and debris as possible, Johnson said bikes and beer cans are the two most common-
ly found items in the river. Sunday, one of three groups found 10 bikes along the muddy riverbed within an hour. Adrienne Adamczyk, fisheries and wildlife junior, said she was surprised by the number of bikes she and the other volunteers pulled from the cold, murky water. With this being her second time volunteering for the event, she said she continues because she enjoys giving back to one of MSU’s most iconic landmarks. “It’s just nice to help out your own community,” she said. “The Red Cedar is obviously a big part of campus so it’s nice to be able to clean it out.” “It’s unbelievable really,” Adamczyk said. “How did it get here (and) why do so many people throw their bikes in the river I don’t understand.” How exactly such a large amount of bikes ended up in the river was a mystery to many of the volunteers at the event. Regardless, they are part of a collection of items the group cleaned up. But, Johnson said bikes aren’t the strangest things she’s found during the cleanup. “We’ve found the police barriers they use during the football games.” Johnson said. “I’d

ASMSU, MSU’s underg r aduate st ude nt government, is expecting to receive a memorandum from the university officially alerting the organization that its student tax funds will be withheld until current funds are moved to an on-campus account, ASMSU President Evan Martinak said. MSU Vice President for Finance and Treasurer Mark Haas confi rmed the funds have been frozen since ASMSU missed its April 5 deadline established in a memorandum sent to the group Feb. 26. The memorandum sent from Haas and Interim Vice President for Student Affairs and Services Denise Maybank said ASMSU must transfer offcampus funds to university accounts no later than April 5. Neither Martinak or Haas were aware how transferring the funds would effect various ASMSU services to students, such as blue books and legal services. Haas said the process of moving the funds to oncampus accounts is being suggested after issues were discovered through internal and external audits. “In addition to external auditors seeing there were problems, the internal auditors who review ASMSU also had problems,” Haas said. “The issue was that ASMSU was not taking steps to follow their own procedures See ASMSU on page 2 X

One year after the Energy Transition Plan passes, MSU still unsure of how to meet goals outlined in plan By Simon Schuster firstname.lastname@example.org THE STATE NEWS ■■
his Earth Day, MSU is making progress on many fronts toward sustainability. The university significantly has reduced landfill waste and energy consumption while almost quadrupling in weight the amount of items reused in the last five years. Recycling also has increased, and numerous research studies into alternative fuels and energy sources are occurring. Although sustainability is a broad, multi-faceted concept, the contention surrounding MSU’s efforts toward sustainability is centered around a single building at the south of campus: the T.B. Simon Power Plant. Running on a mix of coal, natural gas and biomass, the plant powers the entire East Lansing campus, providing electricity to power MSU and steam to heat and cool the university’s buildings. It is an efficient and reliable infrastructure — one that both the universi-
W E AT H E R
ty and activists are working to change. But while MSU works to reduce its dependence from highly-polluting fossil fuels, the university has encountered a number of challenging realities. A goal, not a guide A little more than one year ago, the Energy Transition Plan was approved by the Board of Trustees. The plan’s ultimate goal is to transition MSU to 100 percent renewable energy, but to the chagrin of student environmental groups on campus, the plan doesn’t set a date for the goal to be met or a specific strategy to achieve it. According to Jennifer Battle, who is director of the Office of Campus Sustainability and one of
the document’s authors, the members of the plan’s Steering Committee never intended to create a step-by-step operational plan. “We thought it was important to set the targets and set the objective and be as flexible as possible in how we get there,” Battle said. “The charge was to create a framework, create a longterm general strategy and make suggestions. What we decided was the big, hairy, audacious goal was 100 percent renewable energy, but to say ‘we know exactly how to get there by this timeline,’ I don’t think it would have been responsible of us because it would have been a guess.” Harder to reach However this uncertainty is not limited to only the plan’s loftiest
goals. On page eight of the Energy Transition Plan, a table captioned “MSU’s plan for their transition to 100% renewable energy,” provides benchmarks for MSU’s performance until 2030. The first benchmark, set for the 2015 fiscal year which will begin July 1, 2014, calls for MSU to be powered by 15 percent renewable energy and to reduce the university’s greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent. As of the 2012 Environmental Stewardship Report released at the end of last year, MSU is powered by approximately 2 percent renewable energy and has reduced greenhouse gas emissions about 14 percent.

Rain, rain go away: Red Cedar highest since 2001 By Michael Koury firstname.lastname@example.org THE STATE NEWS ■■
Brought on by the wettest month in the history of April in the Lansing area, the flooding of the Red Cedar River reached 7.69 feet this weekend, the highest level since February 2001. On Sunday, the Botanical Gardens partially were drowned in
flooded waters. Trees sprouted from a pool of water engulfing Old College Field, and the Red Cedar River became a new practice ground for student surfers. As of 2:45 p.m. Sunday, the Red Cedar River was at 7.4 feet, said William Marino, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids. Dietetics freshman Jackie Winkler said she’s been surprised by
how much higher the Red Cedar River has gotten during the past week. “Every time I go over there, it gets bigger and bigger,” she said. The highest the Red Cedar River has been was 13.4 feet, dating back to March 1904. “MSU officials have been closeSee FLOOD on page 2 X
Less than a week after the tragic events at the Boston Marathon, Lansing hosted the nation’s first marathon since the incident, but not without mention of the events and an increased security for the event, according to race officials. On Sunday morning, members of the Greater Lansing community stood together to remember the lives lost and those injured in 2013 Boston Marathon. There were about 2,200 participants in the half or full marathons, which started and finished in front of the Lansing Center, in downtown Lansing. On April 15, two explosions were set off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Three people died and countless others were injured as a result, according to the CNN’s website. Before the race Sunday, participants and their families and friends gathered for a ceremony to remember the Boston Marathon victims, which included singing the national anthem, a moment of silence and recognition of alumna Vir-

Beard had only a half mile to go in the Boston Marathon before she was stopped by security because of the bombs. “There was a ton of us who sat at the last half mile mark figuring out what to do,” Beard said. “It was overwhelming (and) emotional.” At the Lansing Marathon, Beard was part of the ceremonies and allowed to run the last half mile of the race and received a medal. “They let me represent Boston,” Beard said, dressed in her Boston Marathon finishers jack-
et and wearing ‘Boston’ ribbons in her hair. Rather than stay away from marathons after the incident in Boston, runners came to show their support, and the Lansing Marathon’s number of participants rose about 15 percent since the Boston incident, said Pam Jodway, Lansing Marathon assistant race director. “A lot of people came out to pay tribute to Boston,” Jodway said.

Study shows stress helps squirrels survive With the help of their mothers, MSU squirrels are fit for campus survival. According to a press release, a recent study led by researchers from MSU and the University of Guelph in Canada showed how female squirrels can improve their babiesâ€™ survival odds by increasing how fast the offspring will develop. The researchers discovered that squirrel mothers use social cues to prepare their young for the world beyond the nest and confirmed that red squirrel mothers will experience increased production levels of stress hormones during pregnancy. This allows the offspring to grow larger and gives them a greater survival chance. â€œNatural selection favors faster-growing offspring, and female red squirrels react accordingly to increase their pupsâ€™ chances of survival,â€? said Ben Dantzer, who was formerly associated with MSUâ€™s Department of Zoology. â€œSurprisingly, squirrels could produce these faster growing offspring even though they didnâ€™t have access to additional food resources.â€?

ENVIRONMENT To meet targets, MSU considering buying renewable energy credits FROM PAGE ONE
With less than 18 months until the beginning of the 2014-15 fiscal year, university officials working closely with the Energy Operations Committee, the group formed to oversee the implementation of the plan, still are not certain how the most immediate benchmark will be achieved. Lynda Boomer, the energy and environmental engineer at Infrastructure Planning and Facilities, said the goal for greenhouse gas reductions likely could be met by 2015 by switching from coal to natural gas or biomass at the power plant, and making buildings more energy efficient. The renewable energy goal, she said, would be harder to reach. â€œThatâ€™s because of the economics,â€? Boomer said. â€œDo we
buy green energy? Then weâ€™re not generating it ourselves, (by) buying green electricity on the grid. Or do we buy renewable energy credits to meet the first short-term goal? We may end up having to do that for 2015. I donâ€™t know the answer yet. Weâ€™re working hard to figure out if thereâ€™s another way that we can actually invest to be able to generate ourselves, but if we donâ€™t have that answer by 2015, it might not be until 2020 that we have the technology in place to achieve that renewable goal.â€? Being aggressive MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon sees the current uncertainty as an affirmation of the planâ€™s boldness. â€œWhen you have an aggressive benchmark, itâ€™s not always guaranteed that youâ€™ll meet it.â€? Simon said. â€œThatâ€™s why the plan is very aggressive. There was not a clear path to meeting those short-term benchmarks and so when we talk about this being an aggres-
Continued sive plan and holding ourselves accountable, it really isnâ€™t about a date, itâ€™s about a target that really is difficult to meet but yet we think achievable to meet.â€? Yet, according to members of MSU Greenpeace, the plan is not nearly aggressive enough. MSU Greenpeace is the organization perhaps most boldly opposed to the plan as it stands today. Members have been arrested protesting the plan and have conducted a number of what the organization deems â€œdirect actions,â€? including dropping banners and delivering letters to Simonâ€™s office. Recently, MSU Greenpeace has displayed a potential shift in tactics, meeting last Monday with Battle and MSU Vice President Bill Beekman in an hourlong meeting where the orga-
nization asked MSU to commit to 100 percent renewable energy by 2020. MSU Greenpeace coordinator Laura Drotar, history, philosophy and sociology of science sophomore, didnâ€™t feel the meeting made much progress. â€œI think (the meeting) made me feel like weâ€™re not getting through to them. The urgency of this issue is not a priority of Michigan State University,â€? Drotar said. â€œI feel like MSU is taking small steps to address issues with climate change, but I feel like these steps are more to cover their image and not genuine steps to address the real issues with climate change.â€? Reporting and interviews for this article were initally gathered as part of an undergraduate research project.

as far as money concerns.â€? The dispute about the groupâ€™s funds was not related to recent problems with the cancelled NeYo concert, Haas said. Haas added MSU is not looking to turn ASMSU into a university department or control how the organization conducts business with its funding. â€œTheyâ€™re not being asked to be an MSU department, they are being asked to follow all of the same rules that people in the university are asked to do,â€? he said of the allocations that have been made. â€œThey are receiving $1.5 million in tax revenue, thatâ€™s a lot of money, and all weâ€™re asking them to do is to follow the procedures in place.â€? At press time, Haas could not be more specific about which procedures ASMSU failed to follow. Martinak was surprised to hear the funds had been frozen since April 5 and said the group has been working under regular financial operations. He said the organization is mainly funded by the $18 per student per semester tax, which
adds up to a grand total revenue of $1.5 million. Without the student tax revenue, ASMSU will use their emergency funds created for situations such as this. Vice President for Student Funding Mike Mozina said the organization has around $500,000 and can last about nine months without the student tax. Martinak said the university is allowed to withhold student tax funding from the organization because they are the ones originally collecting it. â€œThey collect the money, it goes through the university accounts and thatâ€™s how they can stop it,â€? Martinak said. â€œItâ€™s sort of like the gray area of a policy.â€? The ASMSU general assembly elected to turn down a bill at last Thursdayâ€™s meeting, which would have moved all of its funds to a university financial system. ASMSU general assembly member Nate Pasmanter, similar to nearly all of the representatives, voted against the bill last week because he is worried what the organization would become if the funds were moved. â€œFrankly, I donâ€™t think the university should be responsible for ASMSU funding,â€? Pasmanter said. â€œI donâ€™t trust them to handle the money appropriately and that it would give them a huge amount of leverage over us on who to fund and what to cut.â€?

MSU spokesman Kent Cassella said in a statement. â€œAt this time, flooding has been limited to several walkways and open areas along the Red Cedar River.â€? Since the beginning of the month, 6.76 inches of rain has fallen, beating the previous record of the wettest April with 6.49 inches, set in 2009, he said. Marino said by April 28, the river might be down to 5 feet and at this time of year, the normal height of the river is around 3 feet. â€œAt the rate itâ€™s flowing, it would take three or four weeks to get down to that level,â€? he said. Marino said the rain started falling April 8 and continued almost every day through April 19. From April 8-11 and April 16-19, about 3 inches of rain fell in both time frames. â€œThe thing that counts the most is the amount of rain fall versus the amount of time it took to fall,â€? he said. â€œIf (the rain was) distributed evenly over the month, it would be a different story.â€?

Friends and family talk after the memorial service for National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory founding director Henry Blosser on Friday at MSU Alumni Chapel.
Cyclotron founding father remembered By Darcie Moran email@example.com THE STATE NEWS ■■
Though best known as the reason MSU will be home to the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, or FRIB, to friends and family, Henry Blosser was a gardener. Whether he was growing a multimillion-dollar nuclear physics project out of nothing or tending his famous “Blosser tomatoes,” friends and family said almost everything the founding director of MSU’s National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory touched blossomed into a legacy that could be enjoyed for years by people around the world. Blosser’s influence on those he met was evident by the packed memorial service Friday at the Alumni Memorial Chapel where friends, family and former colleagues met to remember him. Blosser died March 20 in a Lansing hospice from complications from dementia, just four days after turning 85 years old. “Henry had many dimensions — a scientist, an artist and a caring human being,” longtime friend and retired cyclotron laboratory nuclear scientist David Scott said during the eulogy. “Like the powerful superconducting magnets he built, Henry was himself a super-magnet and a superconnector, attracting the brightest and the best into his ever-widening orbit.” Both Scott and Lois Lynch, Blosser’s wife, said condolences
have come from around the world. “He had a wonderful sense of humor,” Lynch said. “He was a special person. High energy. Interested in everything.” While at MSU, Blosser developed initiatives to fight cancer with cyclotron technology. FRIB Laboratory Director Konrad Gelbke said although Blosser was retired, he was active in the MSU cyclotron laboratory — encouraging Gelbke to ignore his fear of failure and develop a proposal for MSU’s Coupled Cyclotron Facility. Even as he fought dementia, Henry Blosser’s son Gabe Blosser said his father’s mind shined through as he continued his old habits of constantly calculating numbers and figures for projects. Days before his death, Gabe Blosser said although he could understand only a few of the words his father said, he’s certain he was attempting to give him advice on buying stocks. Lynch said he enjoyed spending time with his four children, three step-children and 16 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Blosser will live on in the facilities he created, in the “Blosser tomato” seeds he passed on to friends and family, and in those who knew him, family and friends said. “His legacy will never die,” Scott said.

The East Lansing Public Library hosted its secondannual Books, Bites and Bids Library Fundraiser on Friday. About 350 East Lansing community members attended and thousands of dollars were raised. Along with a silent auction, the fundraiser featured food, live music and children’s activities. The money will go toward East Lansing Public Library’s materials budget because of the reduction in the budget for the 2013 fiscal year, as well as the summer Maker Programs, which provides children, teens and adults an opportunity to learn, design and create. The programs include activities, such as model rockets powered by water, do-it-yourself microscopes, sewing and clothing design. Funds also will be used for Code Camp, a four-week long computer-programming course for children. East Lansing Public Library Director Kristen Shelley said they hope to create a digital lab for writers and photographers in the East Lansing area as well. As of Sunday the total raised during the event had not yet been calculated, although it will be close to $10,000, according to Shelley. Elementary education junior Aubrey Makara uses the East Lansing Public Library every few months to create lesson plans with the wide selection of children’s books the library offers. Makara said there are more children’s book options than the Main Library offers. “Depending on the assignment, I use it as the basis of my lesson plans,” Makara said. “I took a music class and I had to find books that had like a rhythm to them to create lesson plans off that rhythm and describe how I would use it.” Books, Bites and Bids also concluded National Library Week, a nationwide celebration sponsored by the American Library Association.

SPARTANS RELAY FOR CANCER FUND By Robert Bondy firstname.lastname@example.org THE STATE NEWS ■■
For Department of Psychiatry professor James Hillard, it was obvious how important events such as Friday night’s Relay For Life of Michigan State University were in his battle against cancer. “I would not be alive if it wasn’t for herceptin, herceptin wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the support of their American Cancer Society and the American Cancer Society would not exist if it wasn’t from the support of you,” Hillard said during the opening ceremony Friday night. “I’m yours for life.” Hillard was one of the many who shared stories of their battle with cancer at the Relay For Life event at Jenison Field House, which began Friday night and ran until Saturday morning. The event was put on by Spartans Fighting Cancer, with many other student groups on campus in attendance in a competition to see who raised the most money for the American Cancer Society. “Cancer never sleeps, so neither do we,” Spartans Fighting Cancer President Devin Amez said. “It’s an all-night event, not a run, not a race. It is a time to remember who we lost and continue to fight cancer.” Relay For Life started with a handful of survivors sharing their stories. The event continued with many more upbeat and emotional events, such as the survivor and caregiver walk, luminaria lighting and 7-Up Flip Cup Tournament. The organization raises money year-round, and raised $95,000 prior to the event, with an ultimate goal of raising $140,000. Prior to the event, the orga-

nization had a total of 900 people preregistered, but Amez said she wouldn’t be surprised if that number was doubled. Ashley Wood, communication junior, was one of the thousands of students in attendance, and she had a personal motive for attending the event. She was diagnosed with cancer in May 2012, but four or five months and two surgeries later, she’s cancer-free. “You never know what everyone is battling, and fighting can-

Similar to Wood, Lyman Briggs freshman Danielle Puckett felt a strong pull to attend the event, noting she lost her grandfather to skin cancer before she was able to meet him. “I don’t want to see it happen to any more people than it has to,” Puckett said. “If we could just continue to keep raising money for cures for cancer that would be awesome.”

COLLEGES MUST FIND BALANCE WITH SPORTS EDITORIAL BOARD Emily Wilkins MANAGING EDITOR Greg Olsen OPINION WRITER Derek Blalock STAFF REPRESENTATIVE Omari Sankofa II MINORITY REPRESENTATIVE Michael Koury STAFF WRITER Simon Schuster STAFF WRITER
competitive athletic program is a commodity valued by colleges and universities across the board.
From enormous amounts of revenue generated in ticket sales and memorabilia, to the prestige connected to national publicity, sports have cemented a place in the framework of many successful colleges. This increased emphasis on furthering sports programs has been a trend observed by colleges of all sizes, but not everyone is embracing this shift with open arms.
Kansas State football head coach Bill Snyder is one of the most outspoken opponents to the movement he believes is plaguing college sports. During a radio interview Wednesday, Snyder said college athletics, particularly football, is in a “bad place right now.” The 73-year-old coach criticized universities for allowing sports to become money driven, and for failing to adhere to the values one should expect of an educational institution. The K-State coach also said he feels overpaid for the work he does, incidentally coming just months after signing a five-year contract worth $14.75 million. For a person of his professional stature, Snyder’s attack at the direction of college athletics is an unexpected breath of fresh air. The new face of college athletics seems like a shell of what once existed. Instead of catering to the needs of student-athletes, current athletic programs appear to have deflated much of the passion once prevalent. College athletes are milked for their tal-

ents and sold for their skills. During their time at school, bigname recruits — often in football and basketball — become the faces of their specific programs, but see none of the money their athletic prowess brings in. In time, this money-based system often breeds a familiar result. For star athletes, the temptation to make money and avoid suffering an injury lead many into leaving school early to pursue a professional career. Instead of leaving their institutions with a degree, many of these athletes are forced to sacrifice their educations to pursue a more fruitful lifestyle. At many universities, college athletics have become a business where traditional values have been sacrificed for dollars and cents. This slide can even be observed at MSU. At MSU, the money generated from the football and men’s basketball programs are in a league of their own. Last year, MSU’s football program produced 62.9 percent of the overall revenue for the athletic department. Not to be out-

done, during that same period, MSU’s basketball revenue was $19,228,130 and was highest in the Big Ten, according to figures from the U.S. Department of Education . These numbers are significant, but they also can be misleading. The main source of revenue for both sports come from private donors, and this money is essential to the survival of other non-revenue sports. But the immense amount of money these programs bring in serve as a testament to the potential magnitude of this problem. Unless universities are able to figure out a way to reverse the direction their sports programs are heading, this tendency we are observing only will continue to worsen. Regardless of how much money they might stand to lose, a university’s top priority should always be to adhere to the needs of the school’s students, and most certainly hold them above athletics.

Eleven professional drag kings and queens strutted their stuff down Bourbon Street at the Official MSU Drag Show on Friday in the International Center. With a Mardi Gras theme, the Crossroads Food Court was transformed with green, purple and yellow decorations, such as feather boas hanging from the ceiling, spotlights and a stage. “This is a tradition that UAB looks forward to put on every year,” said Stephanie Strawska, arts director of the University Activities Board, or UAB. “This is just something different that is open to so many different people, and everyone loves it.” In partnership with Respecting Individuals on Neutral Ground and the Residence Halls Association the show attracted more than 600 people to watch the performers dance, lip-sync and interact with the crowd. Strawska said all students should attend the show for the unique experience. “There is always a fun, outgoing and contagious energy going on this night,” Strawska said. “It expands on a different kind of experience that you normally wouldn’t have.” Hershae Chocolatae, one of the drag queens and emcee of the show, said the crowd’s energy is what made her get involved with drag shows about 12 years ago, and coming to MSU is anoth-
er opportunity to express a different identity. “The crowd’s reaction is what hooked me and for this show, that is one of the things that keeps me coming back,” Chocolatae said. “When I am on stage, I become a character. The performance, the moment and nothing else matters.” While getting ready backstage with the other performers, Chocolatae said although it takes time getting ready and a couple hours to drive to East Lansing, coming to college shows is rewarding. “For me, most colleges are very energetic and go through a great deal of effort to put these shows on,” Chocolatae said. “The hardest part is preparing, but I know it is one of the greatest feelings in the world and I know that’s why I keep doing it.” Theatre freshman Savannah Kolodziej said she was impressed by the performances during the show. “I am surprised at how talented the performers are, and the costumes are phenomenal,” Kolodziej said. Kolodziej said the show is not only a chance to experience an upbeat and positive event, but also an opportunity for students of all sexual orientations to come together. “I have noticed that this brings a sense of community among people who are (lesbian, bi, gay and transgender) LGBT and their straight allies,” Kolodziej said. “It is really awesome to see.”

E. LANSING CELEBRATES RECORD STORE DAY By Katie Abdilla firstname.lastname@example.org THE STATE NEWS ■■
Collecting records has become a family tradition for MSU alumnus Dave Molner. Ever since visiting his brother in San Francisco after he graduated high school, his hobby only has grown. “(My brother) had me listen to some of his records, and when I came home, I took my mom’s old record player, and now it’s one of my favorite things,” Molner said. On Saturday, many collectors, like Molner, paid a visit to Flat, Black & Circular, or FBC , East Lansing’s oldest record store, for Record Store Day. FBC offered giveaways, new releases and live entertainment in celebration of the holiday, celebrated by independent record stores nationwide. Jon Howard, the manager for FBC, said the store began participating about six years ago. “It was the major (record) labels and some independent labels trying to give a boost to small stores, with independent stores closing up and failing,” Howard said. “They wanted to help everybody out.” Howard said Record Store Day reached its peak at FBC Saturday, with the highest local success rate since the holiday kicked off. With vinyl sales reaching an all-time high since the last spike in the late ‘90s, Howard said it’s a good sign for store owners and faithful collectors. “Lack of CD sales brought vinyl back up,” he said. “A couple companies started making turntables again. With the initial spike five or six years ago, I think those people started playing it for their friends, and their friends are now catching on, so it kind of snowballed from there.” Joe Hertler, frontman of Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers,

performed as a solo act Saturday afternoon at FBC. As an avid record collector who has spent hundreds of dollars at FBC, Hertler said buying vinyl brings back a more personal listening experience. “Spending money on vinyl and taking the time and effort to listen to a record, put it on the platter, is something I think a lot more people should be able to experience,” Hertler said. “The commitment that buying and listening to vinyl brings is something that is important and something for me to grasp onto, personally.” Howard said the task of buying vinyl shows more of an appreciation for the artist and their hard work. “We always loved the artwork of it and feel of it and the social aspect of it,” he said. “When you really like a band, you’ll buy something that’s a product of the band that they put some
work into. It’s kind of a tactile thing, and a collection thing for us. We like having a little library.” Despite the rise of mediums, such as Pandora and Spotify, Hertler said he gets more out of the experience from listening to vinyl. “I have a Spotify account, and it’s great because you have access to everything, but I find myself not appreciating the music as much on Spotify,” he said. “It takes away something in that listening experience.” For Howard , there’s no greater feeling than seeing younger generations upholding his love for vinyl. “It’s great because we always stuck with it,” he said. “We always said in the initial Napster, digital age, that vinyl was here to stay. It’s been something we’ve always championed.”

Disc golf club looking to bring sport back to university scene By Omari Sankofa II email@example.com THE STATE NEWS ■■
When students Nate Ross and Ziggy Bierekoven brought back the previously inactive MSU Disc Golf Club in October, the idea was to reintroduce a sport that hadn’t had a presence on MSU’s campus for several years.
Disc golf follows many of the same rules of golf. However, on MSU’s disc golf course, every basket is a par three, meaning reaching the basket in three ... is par Yesterday, the club hosted a fundraising disc golf tournament at MSU’s disc golf course at Farm Lane and Mt. Hope Road. The idea behind the fundraiser not only was to raise funds for the club, but to put the club back on the map. “Here at MSU, they used to have a club, but it disbanded a few years ago,” Ross, an

applied engineering sciences sophomore and vice president of the club said. “This year, we got together with a few people and decided to start another one and get the course back, so it’s been a good year.” The club is responsible for the upkeep of the course. Currently, the course has 15 baskets, so part of the fundraiser’s goal was to raise enough money to buy three more baskets. Disc golf follows many of the
same rules of golf. However, on MSU’s disc golf course, every basket is a par three, meaning reaching the basket in three throws is par and reaching the basket in two is a birdie. “Baskets can be up to $300 each, so for three (more) we would need $900 dollars,” Ross said. T he tournament included three divisions — members, non-members and an open division that played for money. More than 20 people made it to the tournament, and Ross deemed it a successful outing. “We had a lot of non-members come out and a lot of members as well,” he said , adding he was pleased with the level of participation from those at the event. Club member and psychology junior Steven King said his performance was less than par. However, when playing with the group, he said performance isn’t everything. “It’s not just about playing, competing, which is a big part of it,” King said. “It’s also hanging out with another group of people.” Club member and mechanical engineering freshman Jeremy Reisig organized the event. He said disc golf provides a different sort of challenge. “People see it as just throwing frisbees, but there’s a lot of variety to it,” Reisig said. “A lot of variety in the shots and the different holes you see, so the variety of the things you see around Michigan and the things you see in the sport bring people back to it.”

Inept oďŹ€ense on display in spring game Spring football has come and gone for the seventh time in head coach Mark Dantonioâ€™s tenure. A disappointing 7-6 season in 2012 can be attributed to a variety of factors, but one of the most glaring problems was the inconsistent and, at times, anemic offense. After then-freshman quarterback Connor Cook led the game-winning drive in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, a legitimate battle with senior Andrew Maxwell was born and redshirt freshman Tyler Oâ€™Connor joined the fray this spring. With spring practices finished after Saturdayâ€™s Green and White game, it seems MSU only has made incremental improvements from that

each of the bigger variety Dantonio and company have preferred recently, and a burner in R.J. Shelton. On multiple occasions, Dantonio stressed the need for the current backs to be more consistent and affirmed his willingness to play true freshmen at the position. Perhaps it will end up being a true by-committee approach with three or more ball-carriers sharing the load.
December night. Who is going to be the quarterback? Who knows? Just as Cookâ€™s performance in the last game of the season thrust him into the discussion, his performance in the spring game â€” the final day of 15 practices â€” likely narrowed the gap to Maxwell, who previously appeared to have a comfortable hold on the job. The fact that Cook was MSUâ€™s most impressive quarterback Saturday while only completing slightly more than 38 percent of his throws is troubling. What about the running backs? No clue. Pick a straw on this one. Thereâ€™s four tailbacks on the roster right now: juniors Nick Hill and Jeremy Langford, redshirt freshmen Nick Tompkins and Riley Bullough, recently converted from linebacker. None of them have separated themselves in the eyes of the coaching staff this spring, and the fact that Bullough has led the team in rushing the last two scrimmages after just a handful of practices at that spot says a lot about the status of the position. Itâ€™s hard not to believe the job ultimately ends up in the hands of some true freshmen. The Spartans add three more runners in the fall in Gerald Holmes and Delton Williams,

among both teams and came away as the most consistent offensive position group. The defense will be fine. In fact, the Spartan backups likely could field a team that would finish in the top half of the Big Ten defensively. There are few concerns on that side of the ball outside of getting more pressure from the
defensive line. The extremely deep and talented back seven should carry the torch for another top-10 defensive unit this season. If MSU hopes to improve upon last season â€” when the Spartans dropped five games by a total margin of 13 points â€” the offense needs to carry its share of the weight. Itâ€™s that

ans were bundled up and snow fell for much of the game as the White team defeated the Green team, 24-17, in the annual Green and White Spring Game. The game saw brothers Max and Riley Bullough — both normally defensive players — draw up an offensive play before the game started and then execute it to the delight of the fans, and the establishing of a starting quarterback in senior Andrew Maxwell. A few running backs made some moves, including Sparty who totaled three yards. The State News was on the field documenting the exhibition, here are some of the best images from the day. ZACH SMITH

On a cold April morning, amidst occasional flurries of snow, about 150 volunteers gathered at Fenner Nature Center in Lansing for the center’s Earth Day Extravaganza. The event featured a number of nature-related events, such as pond dipping and building bluebird nests, among others. This is the second year of the Extravaganza, Fenner Conservancy Program Manager Katie Woodhams said, although the event existed in a much different format in years prior. Originally, the event was smaller and focused mainly on efforts by the MSU Fisheries and Wildlife Club to reach out to the community, Woodhams said. “We made it explode accidentally,” she said, smiling. MSU was well-represented at the Extravaganza, as the MSU Fisheries and Wildlife Club partnered with the center to organize it. The MSU Herpetology Club also was there, and while they couldn’t do a planned herpetological survey the group had planned because of the weather, co-president Hayley Sisson said she still enjoyed teaching “It’s been a good day,” the zoology junior said. “It’s just fun to come and to have the live animals and teach the kids. (Reptiles are) not gross. They’re integral, necessary parts of ecosystems. They’re really cool animals.” The concern with the survey was that since many reptiles work hard to fight the cold of winter, mainly by hiding underground, surveyors likely wouldn’t fi nd anything particularly interesting, and if

they did find some reptiles, the disturbance could kill them. Instead, they set up a table inside where visitors could observe live reptiles up close. A ways down the trail from the center proper, MSU graduate student Amber Goguen was set up at the pond dipping station. Pond dipping simply is the act of using nets to sift through the debris of a pond to see what organisms inhabit the pond. Goguen explained that certain insects that live in ponds are bioindicators. By observing the insects in one pond against the same insects from a different pond, scientists can learn about the degrees of pollution in one area or another. Goguen said her favorite
parts of pond dipping are the act of discovery in it and that kids love doing it. She said kids love learning about new and different types of insects and organisms that inhabit various ponds. There are a number of goals for the Extravaganza, Woodhams said, such as restoring habitats, staving off invasive species and generally raising awareness. But she said her favorite part was seeing all the volunteers come out and give their time to the event. “Overall, it’s just seeing all the people here contributing (to a) multi-faceted educational experience,” Woodhams said. “To see such a diverse set of people working together is really heart warming.”

The Horticulture Club welcomed the change of season with its annual spring show this weekend in the greenhouse at the corner of Bogue Street and Wilson Road . Attendees of the show purchased plants for their gardens and viewed a sculpted landscape display. Horticulture senior Nick Calderone, the show’s designer, was in charge of crafting the landscape. “(With) the display, the point is to showcase plants in their landscape,” Calderone said. “We always have a spring show theme. This year, we’re doing ‘Sensory Overload.’” Calderone said the landscape was divided into two sections — one that exhibited shade-loving and sunloving plants, and the other showcasing plants exciting to particular senses. The ‘touch’
category displayed Lamb’s Ear, a plant with notably soft leaves. The ‘smell’ category hosted an array of Fragrant Geraniums, which emit a strong odor similar to that of lemon. Head grower Arianna Wilcox, also a horticulture senior, supervised the growth and care of the plants at the show. “I make sure all the plants stay watered, are pruned and get deadheaded,” Wilcox said. The annual show is the main source of income for the Horticulture Club. Wilcox, who has helped organize the show for four years, said the club begins preparing for the show about nine months in advance. He said that the weekend-long show brings in approximately $50,000 for the club each year. “This is the only fundraiser we have for the club all year,” Wilcox said. “It gives our students more situational experience – things they might face in industry.” Marcus Duck is one of the faculty advisors of the club. He has been involved with the show for
10 years, always in an advisory capacity. “The most amazing thing about this is that the students do it voluntarily,” Duck said. “They work tremendous hours on top of their classes and jobs.” Duck also noted the occupational benefits students take away from organizing the show. “Putting together the show is a nice networking opportunity for the students,” he said. “It’s a way to introduce students to jobs.” The Horticulture Club, which has about 35 active members, uses the money raised at the spring show to fund trips to events across the country. This year, the club attended the Student Career Day of the Professional Landcare Network , or PLANET, at the University of Auburn in Alabama. Horticulture sophomore Emily Consigli, a first-year member of the club, placed in the top25 in her category, Interior Plant Identification. “It’s like the landscape Olympics,” she said.
