PROFILE: STUDENT GABRIEL MILLIETTE-BELL
Downtown lockdown Emergency situation leads to safety alert, provides opportunity to assess procedures RYAN SPOEHR News Editor
TRAIL WILL SANDBERG / CLARION
Madison College student Gabriel Milliette-Bell is an avid cyclist and organic food enthusiast.
Student finds way to combine his passion for cycling and promoting healthy eating WILL SANDBERG Staff Writer Speeding silently across a busy Wisconsin Avenue onto West Mifflin St., a rider approaches. His tall, gaunt figure is a notorious shape for those who have put on the miles, and he sits astride a 1947 Brooks saddle bike seat that resembles the texture of an ancient baseball mitt. It is clear at once that Gabriel Milliette-Bell, “Gabe,” is not a common bike commuter, but a devoted cyclist. The high-end yet classic Trek helps to reinforce that assumption. “It’s kind of considered an antique these days,” he said although the bike is only a 2006 model. Wrapped around the frame is an extra heavy chain, not just to secure his most prized possession but also for the “training purposes” the additional weight adds. Milliette-Bell, 25, has recently returned to
A scare at the Downtown campus has led to an even closer look at safety and protective measures at all campuses at the college. After a botched robbery attempt in the 100 block of Langdon Street on the evening of Sept. 18, a shot was fired and both suspects went running. A witness near the scene thought one of the suspects went into the Downtown campus leading to alerts for students in class to stay in the building and take cover, and others to stay away. The WolfPack Alert was sent at 6:45 p.m. and a message went through landlines at the Downtown campus approximately at that time as well. It created a state of shock and fear for students at campus throughout the evening. As the incident at Downtown turned out to not be an active shooter situation, officials took steps, including sending out the alerts, to make sure things were all right or things did not worsen. Madison Police searched the Downtown campus and the suspect was not found there, according to the police report. The report also stated the two suspects were even-

school from a four-year hiatus. Previously he had studied Renewable Energy Technologies and Engineering at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash. “I quit the program to pursue full-time employment,” he said, but he became a Madison College student this semester after realizing his dream would need the knowledge taught in the college’s small business entrepreneurship program. Milliette-Bell is currently delving into the business world and has already launched his own company. Organic Mind Foods, or OM Foods, is an organic food distributor founded on four principles that form the acronym SOAL. Sustainable, organic, affordable and local are the company’s watchwords. His goal is to take online orders and fill them with locally and organically
For almost two decades, Al Studesville worked as a counselor at Madison College. His wife, Janet, was very active in a non-profit agency called Women in Focus and would have served as president this year. Many in the Madison community felt a loss with their passing on June 4 in a tragic motorcycle accident in rural Texas, and now there is an effort to rename the newly constructed Truax Gateway Entrance in their memory. Bob and Sandy Fuller were close friends with the Studesvilles. They created a petition to rename Madison College’s newly constructed Gateway building after their friends. As of Sept. 18, the paper petitions had around 500 signatures and the online petition had about 280 signatures. The goal is to reach 5,000 signatures by Oct. 9.

Public Safety officers respond to many calls for service and we enjoy communicating our activities to the college community. Here are some of the notable incidents from this past month. On Sept. 17, Public Safety officers responded to a report of an owl tangled in the college’s baseball netting near the bike path. Officers responded and located the distressed animal. Officers were able to free the owl without harming the animal. On Sept. 18, Public Safety officers responded to the Downtown Campus to assist Madison Police in attempting to locate a suspect involved in armed robbery. The campus was placed into a lock down while city officers cleared the building and ensured the safety of all staff and students to resume normal academic pursuits. On Sept. 26, Public Safety officers responded to a female patient suffering from an unknown medical condition. Once officers arrived on scene, they rendered aid until Madison Paramedics arrived on scene and took control of the patient.
Campus Safety tip of the Month
Public Safety would like to remind all students and staff to sign up for the WolfPack Alert. This is a free service and is the quickest and easiest way to get important information in times of emergency. Recent events on campus proved the WolfPack Alert worked well to inform everyone of details of the event and we encourage everyone to sign up. If you haven’t signed up please go to Madison College Public Safety’s webpage, http://madisoncollege.edu/ safety, and follow the steps to sign up. If you have any information regarding the above incidents or other campus safety concerns, please contact our department at 245-2222. Public Safety officers are available 24/7.
There is a program at the college to help ESL students in their studies, and the program needs volunteers. The VISTA program is part of The Literacy Network, a United Way project, and is designed to help ESL students by getting volunteers in the classroom. “It’s a great way to gain experience and to boost your resume, especially for students who are undecided about a major but are considering education,” said Amy Krill, program coordinator. The program focuses on helping ESL students in their core English language skills -- reading, writing and oral. Volunteers don’t need any experience in another language, and are likely to get a letter of recommendation from VISTA in addition to the invaluable experience of helping students learn in the classroom. This semester, 22 teachers requested volunteers from the VISTA program, representing a little over half the total number of ESL classes here at Madison. Parents and community members responded, even some UW-Madison students, but still none from our own college. Krill understands that “we are a community of busy people.” But returning volunteers have nothing but praise to sing of the program. “(It’s) incredibly rewarding, I feel as if I learn more than the students,” one told Krill. “I enjoy helping people make better lives for themselves,” said another. And the program is improving, with Krill planning on adding more social networking and events for the volunteers. So if you are looking to meet some new people, help teach some English and perhaps learn a bit about other cultures and languages while boosting your resume and helping out our school, come down to the Student Life office and ask about VISTA. You might be surprised at how much you enjoy it.

Finances force closure of DTEC cafeteria, bookstore WILL SANDBERG Staff Writer Students at the Downtown Education Center were surprised to learn at the start of the semester that the Downtown bookstore and cafeteria had been shut down. With little notice, they had to seek other means to acquire their textbooks as well as a hot lunch. Terrie Thorstad, the college’s auxiliary services director, said both services were losing money at the Downtown location and there was no option remaining but to close them. “I began my role in Auxiliary Services in 2011. After reviewing sales it became apparent that we needed to make changes at DTEC,” she said. The cafeteria alone lost more than $94,000 for the 2012 fiscal year, Thorstad said. “We began meeting with DTEC staff to try and improve service and increase sales,” Thorstad explained. The menu and the hours of operation were modi-
fied resulting in improved sales, but DTEC still bled out $84,000 worth of deficit in the 2013 fiscal year. Thorstad said that the recommendation to close the DTEC cafeteria was based on operating losses and an anticipated decrease in enrollment. This prediction was realized this semester as DTEC saw a 30 percent decrease in student numbers. Yet, according to interim campus manager Kathleen Paris, the college is working to provide options for Downtown campus students. “The good news is that we are working with a program called Business Enterprise Services for the visually impaired to get a small coffee shop here at DTEC,” Paris said. “I’m feeling very positive that it’s going to happen.” Likewise, the Downtown Bookstore was costing the college an increasing amount of money each year. The fiscal year 2013 saw a loss of $38,153 in revenue. The recommendation to close the bookstore was also
based on a new model for book sales that has already been in use at the college’s regional campuses. Although the bookstore may be gone, clerical assistant Don Wesolowski is doing an amazing job helping students get the textbooks they need. Wesolowski uses a PC workstation located in the DTEC store to place book orders for students. “They can either pay for shipping and have books sent to their home, or have them sent to any campus,” he said. Students have the option to prepay or pay when they pick up. Wesolowski speculated that the closing of the bookstore was an attempt to streamline the ordering process. The Downtown store still offers students the option to buy bus passes, supplies and print cards. The decision may make sense fiscally, but Downtown students have yet to understand the cause of the closures and feel they are being left behind, especially
when compared with the resources at the Truax campus. “Truax has a lot of cafeteria options,” said Sarah Sausen, a student at the college. “Why are they cutting the budget here?” Josephine Allen is a student as well at DTEC. She said she is not looking forward to this winter when she must venture off campus in the snow and ice to get coffee and food between classes. However, she said there is one bright point that remains. “At least there are working microwaves,” referring to what remains of the old dining facility. Madison College administrators understand that many students do not have time in between classes to journey off campus to get a meal. The school has made an agreement with FIBS (Fine Italian Beef and Sausage) and Blowin’ Smoke to place food carts on the corner of Carroll and Dayton streets. The carts’ menus offer lunch or dinner options and only accept cash.

Physics club has ambitious goals for the year KAREN CASS Staff Writer Magnets, lasers and fission, oh my! The Madison College Physics Club held their first meeting of the semester, Sept. 18, at Truax. Nine students attended the meeting. Each of them is currently enrolled in a physics course, interested in physics, or both. Daniel Bodnar, last semester’s Physics Club secretary, said he joined the club because he’s interested in everything. “I guess what I’m saying is, I’m interested in physics because physics encompasses everything,” he said. Madison College physics instructors Gerry Ashmore, John Brandenburg and Dixie Burns also attended the meeting. Since its 2011 inception, Physics Club has worn many hats. “Physics Club is what the students want it to be,” Burns, the official Physics Club faculty advisor, told students. “It can really follow any direction that the people who are here want to take it.” Historically, Physics Club meetings consisted of more than just weekly discussions in the classroom. During previous semesters, activities ranged from field trips to study groups, and even included “Myth Busters” viewing parties. Students at the meeting put

The Madison College Physics Club meets in a classroom. together an ambitious list of activities to consider this semester. Possible field trips included visiting the U.S. Department of Energy’s Illinois-based Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and attending a physics lecture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Students also expressed interest in inviting speakers from the physics community, to learn more about career options and networking opportunities. The second half of the meeting included a presentation by Brandenburg on how the technology needed to solve the global energy
crisis already exists. He prefaced his presentation by stating “Today I’m going to tell you why you should be optimistic about the future and, in particular, why you should study physics.” Brandenburg’s explanation captivated the students’ interest. Physics Club meets 4:30 p.m. every Wednesday in room B3200A at Truax. The club will vote for student officers at the meeting Sept 25. Students interested in joining Physics Club can search The LINK or Facebook for Madison College Physics Club, or attend an upcoming club meeting.
The Truax Marketplace is a place to talk to friends, work on homework and of course, eat. With all the changes throughout the building over the last two years the marketplace is one of the places that has stayed the same except for the prices. Over the last two years prices have been reduced across the board, and some things have been added or removed from the menu. Terrie Thorstad, director of auxiliary services, said that “the only thing we do not reduce are things like energy drinks and soda, we don’t really set the prices for soda, Coca-Cola does.” When these changes occurred, the chief financial officer supported them because the marketplace is an enterprise and needs to at least break even, and hopefully make a profit. “We changed a lot of food prices over the last two years, almost everything,” Thorstad said. Thorstad said what originally started this adjustment of prices is the profit margin per item was too high and the sales were too low. Jason Walker, executive chef, said he examined what the Marketplace paid and what was charged to students. At that point, for every one order of French Fries they were selling three burgers, something that was unusual if you were a student. At that time, a salad was 39 cents an ounce, so putting cauliflower on it was going to cost $7 or $8. The changes that came were a result of different surveys, sometimes at point of service and sometimes with the aid of the Student Senate. Two years ago the menu was composed of mainly junk food, and was expensive. It was found that students wanted to have a choice, so a rotating menu was started and healthier foods were introduced. A pasta bar was even introduced due to the interest from students because pasta is relatively cheap and filling. “Students want the option of junk food, healthy food (and) they don’t want the same thing every day,” Thorstad said. Thorstad also said that the Whole Bowl and the WolfPack Den had food that was relatively cheap for what you got. Now students in the baking program make all the baked goods in the Marketplace, as making that food is now a part of the curriculum.

Rixie helps students find jobs
Variety of skills key in visual communications
The Clarion visited with Gretchen Rixie, the new Career and Employment Center manager. Rixie has been working at Madison College for just a little more than three years now. She was previously an academic advisor in the Student Development Center, primarily working with students in the Liberal Arts Transfer program. Rixie earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology and Communications at UW-Eau Claire, and her graduate degree in Leadership and Student Affairs.
Many students wonder what finding a job will be like after graduation. In today’s job market employers are looking for talent and diversity. This is good news for the students in the visual communications program. The visual communications program incorporates many different types of media with focuses on multimedia presentations, graphic design, web design and video production. The program also touches on animation, 3D design, and photography. This variety in training provides students with the skills they will need to meet employer’s communication needs. The variety of the training adds appeal to the program. “I was able to learn not just one media skill but several.” said Daniel Carnes, who graduated in spring 2011. Nicole Richmond, spring 2013 graduate, gained interest in the visual communication program after graduating from the photography program. She said, “The photography program included a video class. I really enjoyed it, but no one else in the class did. I knew then that I really wanted to do video.” Another factor that draws interest to the program is the tuition cost. The total cost of the program is estimated at $10,161. The average reported full-time salary in 2011 was $1,990 per month. Of the 10 graduates available for employment only three were employed in related fields. Despite these numbers, jobs are available. In 2012, TechConnect had postings for 50 full-time jobs in Wisconsin in a media related field. TechConnect is where Nicole Richmond found her job after graduation, “I started applying the minute my portfolio website was up,” she states. Carnes had a different experience finding a job in the field. “After I grad-
Question: What are some similarities between the job you were doing before and the job you are doing now? Gretchen Rixie: My previous position was under the same unit as the Student Development Center. As far as my colleagues and the broader unit, it’s under learner development. The focus in learner development is student development and helping students; a lot of it is outside of the academic realm. The student support services are library services, the employment center, counseling, human resource services and so I am still in that same unit, I will still be working with students directly, so that I think is the biggest similarity. Q: So before you were helping students figure out what kind of classes to take and now you are more focused on helping students get to the next level. GR: Yeah, that’s a good analogy. So before I was working with students that were kind of newer, figuring out their academic plan here at Madison College. Now in the Career and Employment Center I will work more with faculty, employers, other staff on our campus, and then with students who are looking for employment. They may be coming to the end of a technical program and they may be looking for a full-time job. We also work with current students though with finding on campus employment and part time employment in the community.
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “It’s overwhelming how many people are leaving comments all over the United States on the petition website,” said Bob Fuller, when asked about the website. “At Labor Fest, you couldn’t get the petition out of his hands enough for people to sign; even politicians signed it,” said Sandy Fuller of the recognition for the Studesvilles petition. Many coworkers of Al Studesville are not hesitant to share their memories of the Studesvilles. Delisa Scott worked with Al Studesville as a counselor. “I certainly can understand why students, staff and the community would want to name the Gateway after a person such as Al Studesville,” Scott said. “Al was a very welcoming person who would do all that he could to make sure that you were comfortable and had all that you needed to get down to business. One of his favorite and famous sayings was that he ‘matched energy with energy.’ He was true to his word. If you came in with energy and enthusiasm
ONAWA POWELL / CLARION
Gretchen Rixie is the new manager of the Career and Employment Center. Q: What is your favorite thing about your new position so far? GR: Well, one of a few of my favorite things about the new position, is I’ve worked with the staff in this office before so it’s been really nice to reconnect with them. I think they do phenomenal work and I look forward to working with them again. Then of course, being in the Gateway and the brand new Career and Employment center. We did have a Career and Employment Center before but it was much smaller. Now we have rooms for employers to do interviews and it’s a better space all around. Q: Is there anything else that you would like to share about your position as manager of the new career and employment center? GR: I just think Madison College is an excellent place to work. Again, I’ve been here three years, I’m excited about this new opportunity. The major difference in this role is that it’s a leadership position where I’m managing the center and the staff of the center, but I’m also really excited that I still get to work with students directly.
for a goal that you wanted to reach, no matter what it was, he would go out of his way to help you reach that goal. He was the kind of person ‘who knew somebody, who knew somebody’ and he was able to help students and others in the community make connections for all kinds of business and other partnerships.” Scott remembered seeing the Studesvilles in the community before she worked with Al. “I witnessed this same energy out in the community,” she said. “He and his wife were always involved in activities that were designed to help others, particularly activities which encouraged learning and education. They were not only generous donors, but they also rolled up their sleeves and worked tirelessly for the causes they believed in.” On campus, Studesville was also involved in “Wiser Older Workers,” a group of displaced older workers that Al Studesville was active with for many years, helping people return to the workforce. “He was very honest and truthful with them,” Scott said. “They could identify with Al because he had been downsized
– he had to find a new job after so many years. Al understood what these people were going through and could help them through that. Not all of us have experienced that yet and that is something that is very special. ‘Wiser Older Workers’ was very important to him.” Studesville was a close friend of Richard Seibt and the two met while working on some recordings for “Wiser Older Workers.” He wants to create a scholarship for the group in memory of his friend. “Al and I became friends from the first time we met,” Seibt said. “I worked with him on many projects, inside and outside the college. His granddaughter was born around the same time as my son and our time together changed from discussing cigars, politics and how we give to our community to exchanging pictures of his granddaughter and my son while swapping stories of their development and milestones.” When asked what Al Studesville would think of efforts to rename the Gateway in honor of him and his wife, Seibt had a different insight to give. He believes a scholarship for “Wiser Older Workers”
uated I kept looking for over a year and still no luck.” Carnes has been working at a church setting up for various events since 2005. His luck changed nine months ago when the church began broadcasting services online. He is now the main videographer and editor. Matthew Burks, a current student of the program, will be graduating in Dec. 2013. After graduation he hopes to become a media consultant. “I want to start out working for a company then build my own team to help businesses, preferably non-profits, improve with using media,” he said. When Burks was asked what he thinks the job market will be like after graduation he said, “It’s been the same as it has always been. If you have the right skills finding a job will be easier. Networking helps too.” A 2006 graduate, Jeremy Crosby, started Moonstruck Media with three other visual communications students in 2005. Crosby started in the business by doing freelance work while he worked at Channel 3. During that experience he gained enough contacts to start his own business. As an employer, Jeremy goes to the students’ portfolio shows looking for new talent. He said “I look for a strong background, work in addition to school, and portfolio quality work.” Jeremy volunteered at Channel 3 for seven years before getting his degree, and Nicole Richmond had an internship with Strauss Brands. This is common for the media field. Freelancing is also common. Nicole Richmond was not interested in freelancing after graduation. She said, “If I didn’t have this job I would be doing a bunch of odd jobs and I would have to say yes no matter what.” The number of graduates employed and income has decreased since the recession. Burks said it is important to always root for growth.
would be the best way to honor his friend and co-worker. “I believe a scholarship in his memory for displaced workers would be the best way we could honor him. His work in recent years with the WOW group and displaced workers helped lift many whom would otherwise fall in to the depths of despair, or worse.” Seibt did give an interesting idea on how to raise money for the scholarships. “If 900 people showed up to a public event and each donated $5, then it would provide enough money to start something.” Deb Olsen worked as a counselor with Studesville and shares how he was in the community, the work environment and in personal conversations. “Al was one of those people who once you met him – you felt you knew him,” Olsen said. “He had a deep, booming voice that included his love of laughter – both that could be heard in a large conference room when he’d enter it. He shared that he loved to help people make connections – with other people, with academic, personal and/or career decisions, with resources – and he was deliberate in
helping others make those connections. He loved this college.” Sandra Blumer did not work in the same department as Studesville but is a senior advisor at Madison College and was eager to share her thoughts. “He was caring, compassionate and empathetic to the people in and outside of Madison College,” Blumer said. “He was active and involved and his contribution to our community made a positive difference to many people’s lives. He was also one of the best huggers that I ever met.” It is safe to say that the community is still mourning the loss of two great leaders and they will be missed dearly. Al and Jan Studesville touched the lives of many people, not just students, but co-workers and group members of groups they were involved in as well. “He would take you, give you a hug and you were just lost. His hugs were one of a kind. He was a wonderful man,” Sandy Fuller said. The petition to rename the Gateway in honor of the Al and Jan Studesville is posted online at http://www.petitionbuzz. com/petitions/studesvillegateway.

College looks to further improve alert system RYAN SPOEHR News Editor In the aftermath of the recent shutdown and evacuation at the Downtown campus, the college is looking to further improve its communication system and make sure students and staff members know the right procedures to follow in the case of an active shooter situation. At Madison College’s annual Student Leader Retreat on Sept. 14, just days before the incident, Public Safety officers and Student Life staff showed students a video made by UW-Madison Police that described what to do in the case of an active shooter. That same video was shown at Covocation prior to the start of the semester to prepare faculty. Vice President of Student Development Keith Cornille said these steps suggested in the video were reportedly followed by students and staff at the Downtown campus. Bill Garrett was in class at Downtown while the lockdown was initiated. He was also at the leadership retreat on Sept. 14 and saw the active shooter video. He used the steps in the video including barricading the door, shutting off the lights and telling everyone in his class to remain quiet. “The more students we have aware of proper procedures to follow in a shooter event the more potential lives we can save,” Garrett said. He said he thinks it would be a good
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 initial message through the phone system at Downtown telling people to stay in their classrooms was approximately 6:45 p.m., about the same time as the WolfPack Alert through text. Students say about 15 minutes after the initial lockdown message, they were told through the Downtown phone system to evacuate the building. However, no officers came to rooms, students said. Bill Garrett was in class at the time of the incident. He told fellow students to remain as quiet as possible. Then, he and another student pulled the shades down on the window for the room and barricaded the door. When the message was sent to leave the building, he wasn’t sure if that was a good idea. “We were up on the fourth floor. I thought it was better to stay in the room so I spoke up and said ‘we should stay here’ to my teacher,” Garrett said. Garrett said he and his class proceeded cautiously, but did leave the room in the next few minutes. He said he didn’t feel comfortable because he and other students didn’t know if there was a shooter just down the hallway. Daniel Hayes is a student at Madison College. Hayes, a former member of the U.S. military who did security detail, said he thought the situation could have been handled differently. He suggested having a drill so students and staff could be more prepared. He said it seemed as though it was somewhat chaotic afterward. When police searched the building, he said students were sitting and standing outside, some still confused and scared. He also said he didn’t feel comfortable with the situation that night, even after the all clear. After students left the building and went across the street, he didn’t stay. “When I had the chance to leave, I took off,” Hayes said. Keith Cornille is the college’s vice president of learning and student development. He was at Truax when the initial alert was issued. He spent time afterward in Truax’s Public Safety office communicating with Madison Police and administration members on the campus. He said when the message came through to tell students to across
Students who signed up for the service, received this “WolfPack Alert” message. idea to get the word out about the video and perhaps make it an initiative to present the video to more Madison College students. “The more students we have educated, the better chance they’ll have,” Garrett said. Cornille said it is important for faculty, staff and students who have seen the video to show others the video to know what to do in the event of an active shooter situation. “Fortunately, there was no shooter, but it does give us an opportunity to learn from the situation and we will do that,” Cornille said. Cornille added steps are being taken by the administration to make the video shown to faculty, staff and student leaders available on the Madison College website so all students can see it. WolfPack Alerts were sent out via text message and through phones at the campuses when the lockdown was initi-
the street, Madison Police had deemed there to be no threat. Cornille said in a situation like that, students and instructors need to do what they feel is best for themselves. He and associate vice president Tim Casper also went to the Downtown campus to assess the situation and spoke with students to make sure were OK emotionally with the incident. He also encouraged instructors and students to leave the school for the night if that made them feel most comfortable with the situation. Although Garrett felt uncomfortable with the evacuation procedure, he said he commends the college on how the situation was handled overall. He appreciated the messages sent through the phone system and when students were evacuated, they were ushered across the street to the Bethel Lutheran Church. He said everyone stayed calm in the process. “The evacuation was real orderly. I thought it went well,” Garrett said. Cornille lauded the actions of Public Safety and Madison Police in the aftermath of the incident. He said that in incidents like this or even something such as a fire alarm going off, even if you think it’s false students should follow direction. In the case of a fire alarm, even if you think it’s a false alarm, students need to evacuate the building. That is also true in a situation such as the one at Downtown on Sept. 18. He said if students are notified by the college through the phone system to leave the building and go across the street, they need to do so. “We just want to keep you all (students) safe,” Cornille said. He also said, based on reports he was given, students and instructors did what was necessary with barricading the door, pulling shades on windows down, turned the lights off and remained quiet before police gave the clear. “I commend them. They seemed to know what to do in all cases that I knew of,” Cornille said. Madison College Public Safety officers were on alert following the incident, kept the building clear and checked in with remaining students to ensure they were OK with everything.
ated and when the all clear was given. However, Cornille said there were calls coming in from people inquiring about the situation. He said in an event such as this, the college relies on other sources for that information. He said the college will remain cautious so accurate information goes out because the college will not put out information just for the sake of getting out quickly. “It does us no good to say there was a shooter in the building if we don’t know there is a shooter in the building. It does no good to push out to people, ‘It’s all clear,’ if it’s not truly all clear,” he said. “We want to make sure we have the correct information before we share it. Sometimes, that’s frustrating for people and it makes it seem like we don’t know what’s going on. No, we know what’s going on, but we want to make sure we give you the correct information and not exacerbate a situation.” Even with that, Cornille said the system is not perfect. There were updates given through Facebook as well as WolfPack Alerts through texting. However, nothing through other social media sites such as Twitter. There were no emails sent out either unless opted for with WolfPack Alerts, which is something Madison College officials have in mind and have talked to UW-Madison to see how they make email alerts feasible. “I think what the university did with emails was good. We’ll probably start doing something like that. People in this day and age – they’re following the situa-

OM Foods will begin taking orders early in 2014, according to its website. So it is no surprise that Gabe would take his two passions, biking and food, and use them to network his way into the industry. Last weekend he peddled away on the Wisconsin Food Festival Bike Tour. The tour is a 75-mile, five and a half hour trek from Madison to Delavan. His tie to was not just riding. He also organized it. He said the course is “no iron man race,” but rather a leisurely ride avoiding all highways with little elevation change. Those who purchased the bike tour ticket also received, among other things, a jersey he designed with obvious homage given to the Packers as well as admission to the Wisconsin Food Festival. The food festival itself was an event focusing on Wisconsin artisan

So yes, we know that’s one way we can improve,” Cornille said. “I’m not sure WolfPack Alerts is the best way, but we could put something on there that said, ‘follow on web’ or ‘follow on such and such space,’ that might be the way to do it.” Another downfall of the WolfPack Alerts is the 160-character limit. Public Safety administrative director Jim Bottoni said he received calls about confusion over the content in the WolfPack Alerts because of abbreviations used to save space. Some were confused by the abbreviation “DTEC” for Downtown Education Center. “Some students, particularly incoming freshmen didn’t know what ‘DTEC’ is,” Bottoni said. Bottoni said he is working with others in Public Safety to improve how information like this is disseminated. That includes giving more updates as time allows, pending when Public Safety receives word and linking WolfPack Alerts to Twitter. “It’s about what we did right and how we can make things even better,” Bottoni said. For students who have been affected by the incident are encouraged to contact the college’s counseling center at Truax to schedule an appointment at 608-246-6076. Also, Cornille said students are welcome to talk with him as well to offer suggestions or just to talk about the situation. He can be reached at email@example.com.
food producers and the companies that sell their products. “The bike tour was a small success for its first year,” Milliette-Bell said. “Only a couple of other people rode with me, but the weather was beautiful with only a little headwind for part of the day.” Milliette-Bell had actually predicted the minuscule turn-out. Initially, he had organized the ride to be part of the Organic Valley Country Fair, but had to cancel after the Organic Valley headquarters sustained significant fire damage. “I contacted the woman who hosts the Wisconsin Food Festival, and she jumped on board,” he said. Milliette-Bell will continue to promote cycling events because it could be said it is in his blood. “When I was a junior at high school in Viroqua, I participated in a 1,300 mile tour from Natchez, Miss. on up,” he said. He also tells of his trek from Olympia, Wash. through Seattle to Eugene, Ore. and back to Olympia. “I’ve put almost 4,000 miles on this bike,” he said as he mounted it, adjusted his backpack and departed for class.

Questions asked to you, our readers.
EDITOR: ANDREA DEBAUCHE
After the DTEC lockdown, how safe do you feel on campus?
The crime rates at downtown are rising. On this campus, I feel safe. I’d bring mace with me downtown, just in case.
I’m not worried about anything, just because it’s an isolated incident.
I’d say I feel safe, I’m new in town and don’t associate myself with anyone that would put me at risk.

Minding the Mining Opinion Editor
ogebic Taconite: not like Taco Tuesdays, but rather an energy company planning to build a large iron ore mine in the woods of northwestern Wisconsin. The mineral in question is taconite, a form of iron ore abundant in that area. The mine is to be built in the Penokee Range, a vast area of elevated land in Ashland and Iron counties, along the shores of Lake Superior. The new mine is endangering the well being of Wisconsin forests, wetlands, wildlife and communities in the area. Planning this mine was made possible because of a recent bill passed concerning the procedures to approve building a mine. The new mining bill, SB 1/ AB 1, was proposed in January. It fast tracks the time it takes to obtain a mining permit. It was a resurrected version of AB426, a mining bill that was rejected last year after several public hearings where there was overwhelming disapproval. The new SB 1/AB 1 bill gave only one opportunity for public testimony. Gov. Scott Walker supported the bill on the grounds of creating new jobs, and it was signed March 11. The plans have attracted a lot of interest in the state, especially among environmental groups, as well as nearby communities. A nearby tribe, the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, and longstanding environmental group The Sierra Club are two big forces voicing their opposition to the plans. These groups are upset with losing the environmental integrity of the area. The mining technique here uses hydraulic supports to support the roof of the

mine. However, once the miners advance, the supports advance with them and the roof collapses behind them. Any area mined will become a big pit, as well as leaving behind huge amounts of waste rock that have been dug out. With the proposed site being over 6,700 acres, this leaves a lot of destruction behind. Mike Wiggins Jr., chairman for the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Council, has publicly opposed the iron mine. In a news release, he asserted that the methods for mining this area could not be controlled for minimal damage, and would have a substantial negative impact on the area. Wiggins pleads his tribe’s sentiments: “The Bad River watershed is a Wisconsin gem and pristine environmental resource, and the Band’s cultural identity and way of life is highly dependent upon maintaining the health and integrity of the watershed.” Dave Blouin, Mining Committee chair member for Sierra Club, provides his organization’s health and environmental concerns. Turning any area into a large pit will likely have a permanent negative impact on the local habitat. Along with the distress of losing thousands of acres of what is now continuous forest canopy and function-

ing habitat, there are also concerns over waste from the site. They are predicted to cover 2 square miles of land, forever, and will have to be impounded and controlled to keep from leaking toxins into the ground or water systems. This iron mine has more health and environmental risks than it is worth in created jobs. The proposed mining site by Gogebic Taconite is compromising the well being of local wildlife and communities, which should be considered before all else.
The costly reality of textbook prices DANIEL HERRON Multimedia Editor
he national average cost of books and supplies for college students hovers around $1,100 per student per year. This varies, of course, by location, school and course of study, but everyone feels the bite. Where does all this money go? Why are we spending it, and who benefits? Why don’t we all just use open-source materials, like OpenStax? Bethany Sansing-Helton gives the most compelling reason. “It’s not about the textbook. It’s about the other resources we get.
Homework problems, test problems, PowerPoint slides,” she said. Teachers, especially ones teaching a particular subject for the first time, rely on these resources. But couldn’t they get them from other teachers? “It’s a little different in a community college, but nobody shares everything,” Sansing-Helton said. She added that in large universities, material created for a particular course by a teacher is sometimes jealously guarded. A change in culture would solve some of the problems, but not all of them. Everyone seems to agree that
publishing companies’ current practices are abusive, like putting out new editions with only minor, inconsequential changes just to force students and teachers to buy new rather than used. They make a lot of money doing this; all of the top eight publishing companies in the world are education publishing. Even Random House, the ninth biggest, is owned by Bertelsmann, who ranks fifth on that list. In fact, you have to read all the way down to number 18 on the list to find HarperCollins, the first self-owned publishing » SEE TEXTBOOKS PAGE 7

Unfortunately, managing editor Jake Ennis will not be able to write a letter to you all as stated in the previous issue. He is out of town for a funeral. He is one of my best friends, so I have his back this time as he has had mine. I got this Jake. Well, I’m back as news editor at The Clarion. The Clarion is a second home for me and I’m glad to be back. Since I have the forum, I would like to make a short, personal statement. Over the summer, as
some know, I lost my mother Carol after her 3 and a half year battle with cancer. Since then, my family and I have had great support from Madison College students, Student Life staff and administration members through cards and well wishes. And from Watertown to Madison and everywhere in between, there have been thousands of dollars donated to the American Cancer Society and other charities in my mom’s name. On behalf of my family, I’d like to say thank you for everything.

More beltlines? What about bus lines? NATALIE SOWL Graphic Designer
JASON MILLIS Staff Writer
ecently there has been a lot of information coming out about the latest incident of using chemical weapons in the civil war in Syria. This event occurred in Damascus on Aug. 21 of this year and killed over 1,400 people. According to the United Nations and the AP, there is an investigation into 14 other attacks by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that could have involved the use of chemical weapons. In 2012 President Obama officially set a “red line” that, if crossed by the Syrians, would trigger US involvement in Syria. This “red line” has been crossed several times already, but this time was different because it was the first to be publicized. Right now, the majority public opinion is against military involvement in Syria. A military strike could be a way to obtain the chemical weapons the Assad regime possesses, and has used in the past, and not to remove Assad. Obama has already made a point of seeking congressional approval for a strike, even though as Commander in Chief he can act without approval. He has already utilized his powers through 163 executive orders to bypass Congress, but in this case he doesn’t want to be the only one blamed for this action. He needs to stand behind his “red line” announcement. In an interview with the AP, a senior mem-
ber of the Syrian National Coalition stated, “They are leaving a murderer and concentrating on the weapons he was using. It is like stabbing somebody with a knife and then they take the knife away and he is free.” It is true that Assad has killed plenty with conventional weapons, and this plan would leave the gun while taking the knife. The threat of a strike from the U.S. is not very likely. Comments by Secretary of State John Kerry revealed that any strike from the U.S. would be “unbelievably small” and represent a “limited effort.” What I assume is that a small military attack would be largely for image purposes. Basically, any military strike from the U.S. would need to be big. The threat of an “unbelievably small” attack with “limited effort” confined to the removal of chemical weapons wasn’t enough to scare him into releasing the weapons; it was Russia that convinced Assad to release the weapons. The U.S. had no part. And Assad isn’t stupid. He knows that any large threat could be empty words. The best strategy for the administration right now is to go along with Russia in this diplomatic process through the UN, because a small strike by the U.S. would not be enough to remove the weapons or Assad. The U.S. won’t go big, so they might as well stay home.
A note of thanks from the college president, Dr. Jack E. Daniels III
I would like to thank faculty, staff and students for their cooperation Wednesday night during the “lockdown” at our Downtown Campus. I have heard several reports relating to the high level of cooperation that allowed our Public Safety staff and the Madison Police Department to conduct their investigation and search for suspects. Faculty, staff and students in classrooms followed procedures for emergency situations, a significant factor in the successful operations conducted by law enforcement officials. Madison Police report DR. JACK E. that this was a targeted robbery and not a random DANIELS III incident. While this event College President caused a major disruption, we are fortunate that no one was injured and this situation ended peacefully. Special thanks to Director of Public Safety
Jim Bottoni and his staff for their prompt issuance of a WolfPack Alert and Emergency Phone Notification to make people aware of the situation and for providing direction to the occupants of the building. As a reminder, these are the steps to take in the event of such an emergency: • Stay away from the building in which the incident is occurring. • If you’re in the building, take immediate shelter. • Secure all doors. Counseling services are available to students and staff adversely affected by this incident. Appointments can be made to meet with a counselor by calling 246-6076. If an instructor would like a counselor to attend their class to process this situation and the impact it has on the class, please call 608-243-4102 to schedule this debriefing session. Again, my appreciation to faculty, staff and students at our downtown campus for your cooperation and setting a “best practice” for our other campuses to follow in these situations.
Improving the bus system in Madison could quickly alleviate some of these problems.
t’s 4:30 on a Friday and the line of cars in front of me stretches for miles. The Beltline is wound up tight, and my mind with it. I’m sure you’ve been there. Idling in traffic is annoying at best, and maddening at worst. Slowly moving through tight lanes and being bound up by construction and congestion is enough to make my skin crawl. Could there be hope? The City of Madison recently began surveys to determine what improvements could be made to the beltline highway system. The Beltline is a major transportation route for many Madison College students, and carries thousands of people everyday to their jobs, homes and school. With such high usage, accidents could happen at any time. An average of 1.3 crashes a day happen on the beltline. That’s over 400 crashes a year. Ouch. However, most of the options focus on building new beltlines around the area. Up to three new beltlines have been proposed: north, south, and one that traverses the Isthmus. Research continues on what options could help, but building three new highways just seems like a good way to ensure what will seem like 30 years of nonstop construction. There are better options that could reduce congestion and increase safety.
The Madison Metro bus system services much of the area and usually arrives on schedule. But it is also limited in some ways, which can be frustrating. Currently, five bus lines travel across the beltline. Many of these routes end service early, around 6 p.m or 9 p.m. Some routes only run during the rush hours.
have different styles, they all want different things. Letting them pick the tools can be a good thing.” Not every teacher asked was as hesitant. Oumar Kaba, a math teacher here and at UW, was enthusiastic about the idea of using open source materials. “Anything to save the students money,” Kaba said. In the end, most of what you’re paying for is classroom materials--things you gain the benefit of anyway. Is there a better way? Probably, but it will take some searching and perhaps a shift in the culture of education before it comes to light. Meanwhile, as a student, you should talk to your teachers about the options that are available to them, and try to understand why they have asked you to buy a $150 used textbook. It might not save you any money, but it might help you understand what, exactly, you’re paying for. And who knows, they might just tell you to download the PDF.

company that is not primarily education. Where does all this money go? At least some of it is going to developing better materials for the teachers, more online resources, and publisherspecific homework sites. That’s the new big selling point. But if these sites and extra materials are such a big selling point, why don’t colleges develop their own tools? “I was at (University of Colorado) when they tried that. It didn’t work. We just don’t have the same resources as the publishing companies do,” said Archie Paulson, a physics teacher here at Madison Area College. When the idea of partnering with an existing homework site was brought up, he was hesitant again. “One of the drawbacks to that can be that teachers all
Weekend service is generally much more limited. There isn’t even a bus that goes directly past Truax on the weekends, even though there are still scheduled classes and events. However, if these issues could be improved, and people can be encouraged toward public transportation, travellers could experience less congestion. If the city is trying to improve transportation for the area, expanding Madison Metro service should be part of the solution. Every person on a bus becomes one less car on the road. Expanding hours and routes to serve more people would reduce beltline congestion without additional construction. The beltline problem is larger and more complicated than can be solved by a singular solution, but increasing mass transportation services should be considered for the future of a busy but happier Madison.

SEPTEMBER 19TH- ALLIANT ENERGY CENTER KID CUDI Concert Review
THE MAN ON THE MOON ANDREA DEBAUCHE Opinion Editor “CU-DI! CU-DI!” we chanted, before Kid Cudi made his appearance on stage-dry ice and spandex space suit included. Openers Logic and Tyler the Creator were fun enough, but the audience had been waiting patiently all night to see “the man on the moon.” The concert was held Thursday, Sept. 19 at the Alliant Energy Center. Logic is a new name out there, and was clearly still having a genuinely good time like only a new performer can have. He got the crowd warmed up for Tyler the Creator, which really started to swell by that point. He, too, was chanted on stage, and proceeded to basically freak out the remainder of his time. He rapped, he gyrated…but the crowd dug it. Songs like “Tron Cat” may be a little hardcore for me, but his fans
comes to Madison
were happy to see him. And finally, Cudi. He seemed significantly more sober than I had expected, and actually had a lot of enthusiasm. He opened with a lot of energy, however despite that, he lost the crowd during some slower songs. But with his best-known songs, he couldn’t miss. Smoke and green lighting set the mood for “Marijuana,” and “Man on the Moon” was another enjoyable classic Cudi song. “Soundtrack to My Life” was one of the more magical moments of the show, and was sung by
almost every audience member. “Day ‘N’ Nite” was unfortunately sort of skipped over. It was only played as filler noise between other songs, but I believe the audience would have responded well to a legitimate effort to his most iconic song. However, the crowd was certainly responding well by the end of his time on stage. He had us, again chanting, “it’s getting late but I don’t mind…” during “Memories.” “Pursuit of Happiness” is another favorite Cudi track and was, unsurprisingly, another crowd pleaser. Overall, with the exception of a few lags in energy, Kid Cudi put on a fun concert. Any Cudi fan would have enjoyed seeing him.
MGMT Releases new sounds on new album CALLIE VASEY Staff Writer Move over posers. MGMT’s new selftitled album has officially dropped and it’s nothing like the first two. If you’re looking for some new songs that resemble “Time to Pretend” or “Kids”, well you might as well stop while you’re ahead. Some people don’t understand MGMT’s genius. What the band did on their first two albums, they will never go back too. The band is constantly changing their sound and the influences of their music. On this new album, MGMT uses more percussion, effects and electronics to their songs and this album has a ‘60s pop feel to it. “Mystery Disease” really gives you the feeling of being in a fun house and it’s really creepy but you still like it. “Cool Song No. 2” has an exotic feel to it, and you can’t help but wiggle around in your chair to it. But the song that stood out most to me was “I Love You Too, Death.” This song starts off with giggles, then really weird flute noises. Out of nowhere come vocals and at first it’s a little off-putting. The type where you think, “Hmm, am I ever going to give this a second listen?” After a little ways through, the song changes and comes together perfectly. Andrew Vanwyngarden’s vocals are stronger on this new album, but he still manages to keep his never-ending falsetto voice. The background vocals compliment the song well too. A very close second or possible tie would be the closer song, “An Orphan of Fortune.” The importance of this closer song will only be known if you give it a strong listening too, although if you’ve only listened to “Time to Pretend” and “Kids,” your expectations might not be what you’re hoping. As for me, I’ll always be an MGMT fan.
PREVIEWS SEPT. 24 THE BONES OF WHAT YOU BELIEVE
The Arctic Monkeys, for those who aren’t acquainted, are a young British indie rock band. From all those adjectives, one could predict that this band is awesome. I think they are. Britain does too. They have quickly become popular in the motherland, and are now becoming known in the states. The band just released their fifth album “AM.” The opening song, “Do I Wanna Know?” leads the album with a really great vibe. Upon hearing this popular single for the first time, I couldn’t have been more excited or rocked out any harder. The guitar alone could persuade anyone to keep listening within seconds. Right away, we can see a drastic change in Arctic’s style since their first album, only 7 years ago. Their quick rise to popularity in Britain and the U.S. alike appears to have propelled their artistic growth to an accelerated rate. This album is clearly an experiment with their sound, and has moved from an energetic indie rock to a slower psychedelic rock. Their old sound, like their first single “I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor,” and new sound alike are compelling. “R U Mine?” is the second track and another hit single released last year. Arctic Monkeys are really going for soul in this album, and are pulling it off. Unfortunately, a couple of slow songs that come after are a little boring. Though Arctic is free to go in a more psychedelic direction, they could have used a few breaks to change the mood up with their old energy. Luckily, “No. 1 Party Anthem” makes an appearance half way through and leads the way for a great rest of the album. The kind of slow British anthem that’s great for humming to
yourself. Some other tracks worth noting are singles “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” and “I Wanna Be Yours” that follow up with more lyrical intrigue and groovy vibes. Overall, Arctic Monkeys did a great job experimenting with their sound and produced a fun album.

BATTLE OF THE WINGS
MCDONALD’S MIGHTY WINGS vs. TEMPEH HOT WINGS
Editor-in-Chief And in this corner, weighing in at a respectable 30 grams it’s the real deal poultry meal, Miiiiiighty Wing. McDonalds’ Mighty Wings have finally hit the menu, and given critics of the fast food joint’s fried flyer something to really chew on. A successful trial run in Atlanta, last year, led the company to unveil them nationwide. After sparking controversy over allegedly causing a national chicken wing shortage and also receiving criticisms that the new item wasn’t a suitable addition to their menu, McDonalds delivered a surprisingly scrumptious meal. If you’re willing to wait a few minutes and pay a bit more for quality; the real chicken will be hot, flavorful and crispy. Often times, fried chicken can leave an unpleasant greasy residue behind but not these. Beneath a flavorful, slightly zesty and deliciously crumbly battered skin, the mix of drummies and wings are bursting with plump, juicy chicken. While they aren’t the perfect drivethru meal choice for quick in the car consumption, the wings are everything that a chicken lover could ask for. Chicken Mcnuggets are fine, don’t get me wrong, but the “all-white meat” bites leave so much to be desired as well as
unpleasant bits of gristle behind way too often. At approximately a buck per wing, it isn’t as friendly on the wallet or as convenient as the nugget but is surely a better quality of meat. Costumers have their choice between a 3, 5 or 10-piece meal. If there is any complaint of this wingman, it is the sauces that come with. It’s not so much that they aren’t sapid complements but, rather, that they are not sufficiently come-at-able and make for a nearly impossible dipping task. Ranch, honey mustard, chipotle barbeque, and spicy buffalo all pair up well with the chicken’s flavor but are only useful when poured on directly or to the side. Even if the meal limited an order to one sauce, a wider mouthed cup would be much preferred. I’ve always been under the impression that calories are energy and protein is necessary for healthy muscle development. Well the 10-piece packs a powerful punch of vitality. With an impressive 60 grams of protein, 63 grams of fat and 960 calories, a single meal should be able to give consumers a day’s worth of the essentials. This is obviously a more calorie efficient way of grubbing and is further proof of the real chicken wing’s superiority. I will give a vegan diet credit, however, for helping my lunch to grow up to be big, strong and juicy.
NATALIE SOWL Graphic Designer I have searched long and hard through grocery store aisles. I have combed with great care through recipes and blog posts. All in the hopes of someday tasting a vegan hot wing. Buffalo or hot wings strike a chord deep within my soul. I can’t seem to shake the desire, despite valiant efforts to find satisfaction in less salty, fatty, processed foods. But at last I have found a solution. And it’s doable in an apartment kitchen, with no undesirable additives. These vegan hot wings utilize tempeh, fermented soybean cake, as a meat analog. Though that may not sound appealing at first, there are many great reasons to include tempeh into your diet. One of many reasons to eat this, it’s an excellent source of vegan protein. Tempeh provides 15 grams of protein in a 162-calorie serving. According to Nutritiondata.self.com, (a great resource), tempeh is a good source of vitamins and minerals, including riboflavin, magnesium, phosphorus and copper, and a very good source of manganese. Organic tempeh avoids the danger of including genetically modified soy prod-

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Combine the marinade ingredients in a shallow, flat-bottomed container and then add the tempeh pieces. Allow them to soak for at least 15 minutes in the marinade. Mix together flour, water and
ucts in your diet. Genetically modified foods have been linked to cancer and chronic disease, and are banned in many parts of the world. I avoid them whenever possible. Ever since my roommate played “The Last of Us” in my house for three straight weeks, I have been especially paranoid about tumors. Additionally, tempeh is a fermented food! Fermentation is a controlled bacterial process that creates things like beer, cheese, bread, and pickles. Eating fermented foods, especially nutritionally dense ones like tempeh, is great for your health (beer is unfortunately not so healthy). Eating tempeh introduces beneficial bacteria in the gut, which comes under attack from less healthy foods, such as deep-fried chicken wings. Fermentation also introduces new complex flavors to food, which is why tempeh makes for such a satisfying meat substitute. It’s nutty and mild on its own, and easily picks up the flavors of marinades and sauces. The texture is chewy and firm. Though it’s not ripping meat off the bones, these tempeh hot wings are reminiscent of the popular boneless buffalo wings offered at many bars and restaurants. As Wisconsin settles into football season, and these tasty treats make for a filling and nutritious addition to the tailgating line-up or party tray.
hot sauce to create a batter. It should be thick enough to cling to the tempeh. When the tempeh is done marinating, dip each piece into the batter, completely covering it, and place on a greased baking pan. Bake until the batter hardens on the tempeh, about fifteen minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and coat the crispy pieces with whatever sauce you wish and then bake again for an additional 5 minutes. Now eat! They can be drenched with more sauce, or left alone. Serve with fresh cut vegetables and hummus or blue cheese dressing. Just make sure there’s plenty to share.

Here comes trouble, again: Rose Byrne is back as a frightened mother in the horror sequel “Insidious 2.”
TOM RICHARDSON Staff Writer Horror sequels are tough. Not only does the material need to be scary again, but the story must be continued with a new, interesting direction. James Wan already directed “The Conjuring” earlier this year, which scared the daylights out of many. Now James Wan had to continue the story of his 2011 hit “Insidious,” while also re-inventing the scares, and he had to introduce something new and unique. Wan put himself in a tough situation, and his latest horror film “Insidious: Chapter 2,” somewhat represents just how tough his task was in making this sequel. “Insidious: Chapter 2” follows the Lambert family immediately after the
events of the first film. They are staying at the grandmother’s house while the police investigate their home after the horrific paranormal events of the first film. The Lamberts try to get back to their normal lives again, but things just don’t seem right. Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) the father of the family, just isn’t quite the person he once was. He doesn’t seem to be worried about anything, and he always seems to be in the worst place when the paranormal happenings start up again. But as the film progresses, Josh’s family starts to realize that he might have brought more of the spirit world of “The Further” back with him than he thought, and that an evil force that started all the way back at Josh’s mother’s hospital; where she once worked, just might have a connection to
this haunting force. One thing that this sequel does really well is making certain scenes significant to the first film. It gives the viewer the impression that both films connect, and that everything happens in these two films for a reason. The film also has some well-executed flashback scenes that help to show why certain characters are the way they are, good or evil. Rose Byrne and Barbara Hershey, who play the wife and grandmother; respectively, get a lot more to do in this sequel. The grandmother specifically has a very significant connection to these paranormal forces. Though “Insidious: Chapter 2” provides plenty of scares for it’s viewers, there are some issues with it that might prevent it from becoming a horror classic. To start, the world of “The Further”
seems way too overcomplicated for this sequel. It even breaks the rules and restrictions that it had throughout the first film, just to make the sequel’s plot work. The film also has a tendency to over-explain things, even for content that’s not significant to the storyline. Mystery is good sometimes. At one point, Patrick Wilson’s character temporarily takes a different turn that feels very ludicrous and almost distasteful. “Insidious: Chapter 2” is by no means a bad film. There are just certain elements about it preventing it from being great. Maybe James Wan isn’t meant for sequels. For those who liked the first “Insidious” film, this might be a great future rental.
THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: THE WIND WAKER HD NINTENDO WII U
Link returns for remastered HD adventure NINTENDO
Link has taken many forms over the last few decades, some more “normal” than others. Link from Wind Waker has always been different, though. His cell shaded style was met with controversy in the gaming community, and with good reason. Make no mistake, however, that the game was fantastic in 2003 at its original release, and is even better now in glorious
high-definition with a remastered soundtrack. You play as a young 10-year-old boy, Link, who lives a peaceful life on Outset Island with his grandmother and little sister. On the day of his birthday, however, his sister is kidnapped by Ganon, a once allpowerful prince-of-darkness, where she is taken to the Forsaken Fortress. You’re equipped with a sword and shield and embark with some not-so-noble pirates in an attempt to rescue her. As the plot progresses, you acquire the master sword, an ancient sword with sacred energies, and accidently release Ganon of the shackles placed on his magic powers hundreds of years ago. No longer a plot about saving one kidnapped sister, you move forward to save all of Hyrule and its great seas. What has always stood apart in Wind Waker isn’t its captivating story, the depth of the characters and their development (although they certainly play a role in the game’s great success), but you can be sure to find tons of small side-quests throughout this game. So many, in fact, that for a decade individuals referred to the title as the biggest open-ended adventure game in history. That may not be the case anymore with popular adventure games like The Elder’s Scroll V: Skyrim, but it still holds a candle even to today’s more modern franchises.
The combat in the game has stayed the same, for the most part. With the Wii U controller, it takes only a small amount of training to get fully accustomed. You can pull items from your bag onto either the X, Y or R1 buttons for use in battle. With all the items you’re given, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that you can easily pause the game to switch them out if you’re in a fight. It can get confusing at times, though, having a second screen that requires you to look down on. Overall, the combat remains one of the game’s most redeeming qualities. The music, as well, is a great aspect of the game, and remains as such in the HD remake. The composers and sound design has changed to keep the game up-to-date. Overall, the game hasn’t aged a day. It remains a challenger even among the most highly regarded games of this generation. You can easily fool someone into thinking this isn’t an HD remake. If you were one of the lucky ones to get the special edition Wii U bundle, give yourself a pat on the back for getting your hands on the game early.

The wins are piling up as the WolfPack soccer team continues its hot start to this season. The WolfPack defeated the MATC-Milwaukee Stormers on Friday evening at Warner Park by a score of 5-1. It’s the first time the WolfPack has scored five goals since Oct. 21, 2009, against the MATC Stormers at a regional tournament. “We had the advantage in numbers,” said coach Corey Sims . “We had the advantage of playing these guys before so we knew what to expect.” Indeed, the WolfPack had a big advantage in substitution numbers and were able to use them to keep control of the ball for most of the game. The WolfPack jumped to an early 2-0 lead off of goals by forward Marcos Meneses. The first goal showed his tremendous speed as he raced past the Stormers defense. The next goal by Meneses was on a hard shot that barely got passed the diving goalie for the Stormers.

After taking a leave of absence during the 2012 season, WolfPack head golf coach Bill Scheer is back for his 13th season. During his career as coach, Madison College has won six district and five state titles and Scheer has won state coach of the year five times. Scheer said while coming back, it was actually smooth transition because he has already coached golf for so many years. He said the challenge lies in constantly replicating the success year in and year out with the kind of BILL quick turnover that exists at the SCHEER junior college level. Because of this, Scheer said learning to work with what you have, work on the short game and making practice fun is crucial down the stretch. Scheer said he believes the season is going well so far, noting that everyone seems to be gelling and working hard. He said this is a team that is very determined to succeed. As a result, he said the team was improving game to game. They hope to achieve a high level of consistency and peak at the right time heading into the tournament. In its most recent action, the golf team competed in the twoday Illinois Valley Classic at the Senica Oak Ridge Golf Course in Lasalle, Ill. The WolfPack finished 14th out of 20 teams with a team score of 662. Nick Satina and Devin Lysne led the team, both shooting a 158 for 36 holes and finishing tied 18th overall. Brady Ohlin finished tied for 31st with a 165. Earlier this month, the WolfPack finished second out of four teams in the College of DuPage Tournament on Sept. 14, posting a team score of 321. That followed a strong performance at home in the Madison College Invitational on Sept. 7, where the team placed second out of four teams with a score of 325. Madison College next plays in the Midwest Elite Golf Challenge in Spring Green, Wis., on Sept. 27. The regular season concludes in the Prairie View Classic in Byron, Ill., on Oct. 4.

MONEY CONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 by the NCAA (he was suspended for one half of the season opener). But the stigma of being a loose cannon cheater has followed him. After all, everyone hates a cheater – especially one who gets away with it. The rules are there for a reason, we say. We say that even if we don’t agree with the rules, they still have to be enforced. We are stuck in a perpetual “that’s the way it is because that’s the way it has always been” mentality when it comes to NCAA rules and regulations. But should we? Across the nation in college football the rules seem to be strictly self-serving for the NCAA. The NCAA rules about players receiving money and gifts or profit are more archaic than the Dead Sea Scrolls. We like to believe that these rules were written with a mind towards fairness – that every college should get a chance at that star recruit, that amateurism is a romantic ideal. But the truth is these rules were written nearly two generations ago to prevent the mob from getting players to point shave or throw games. They were not written for an era in which colleges were making hundreds of millions of dollars from the exploits
of their star players, while the players themselves are supposed to live in poverty. Last season during Manziel’s Heisman trophy run, Texas A&M made $119,702,22, according to USA Today. Forbes reported that the game between Alabama and Texas A&M set a record for ticket prices. The reason? It was for a chance to see Johnny Manziel. Every single season we see some new university or player under scrutiny for some “major” NCAA rules infraction. The actual infractions turn out to be things like a players’ mom getting a fur coat. A star player got a $45 tattoo after making his university $130,000,000. A player sold an autograph. Players in Wisconsin got free shoes in Black Earth. These players can’t get free shoes but their athletic director has homes in three different states off of revenue from those players’ hard work and talent. Every year this happens and every year we have to listen to some old, out of touch relic like Lou Holtz got on a soapbox about it as if it’s the kids who just never learn. But the reality is it isn’t the kids’ fault. It’s an unfair, extremely unbal-
anced system that is exploitative, selfserving and greedy on the part of the NCAA. Lou Holtz was angered by Johnny Manziel’s “show me the money” gesture. Manziel potentially being involved with autograph sales enraged the NCAA. Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin was enraged by Manziel’s attitude during the season opener against Rice. Yet none of these entities are declining the television face time (Holtz), school revenue (Texas A&M), ticket sales/television ratings (the NCAA) or job security (Sumlin) that are all being provided to them by the stellar play of athletes like Johnny Manziel. Manziel was lambasted for his money gesture. Alabama’s TJ Yeldon was penalized for imitating that gesture during the game against Texas A&M. It was considered taunting, an affront to the integrity of the game. Sadly, out of everyone involved – the refs, the coaches, the institutions, CBS, the stadium, Lou Holtz, Kevin Sumlin, the NCAA – Manziel and Yeldon were the only ones punished for saying “show me the money.” Yet they were the only ones not making any.
