Mining bill advances without crucial vote By Tyler Nickerson and Paloma Trygar The Daily cardinal

grey satterfield/the daily cardinal

Faculty Senator Adam Gamoran told the senate Monday a report found UW-Madison faculty salaries are lower than those at comparable institutions.

Report: UW faculty paid less than peers By Cheyenne Langkamp The Daily Cardinal

After a report found that faculty salaries at UW-Madison are significantly lower than those at peer institutions, members of the Faculty Senate said Monday they feared professors would leave the university for betterpaying offers. The report suggested UW-Madison use tuition increases and out-of-state

admissions to increase revenue to the university. A Faculty Senate committee drafted the Commission on Faculty Compensation and Economic Benefits Annual Report, which was created to provide information on current problems with faculty retention and offer recommendations to improve faculty benefits. According to the report, UW-Madison faculty salaries

are about 11 percent lower overall than those at competing institutions. “An 11 percent differential is pretty large and it’s large enough that it makes good people look for other jobs,” said Brad Barham, chair of the Faculty Senate’s University Committee. The report also found that an increasing number of faculty

The Joint Finance Committee voted Monday to send a controversial bill that would ease regulations on iron ore mining in Wisconsin to the state Senate floor, even though it seems unlikely to pass there. State Sen. Dale Schultz, R-Richland Center, is the only Republican who opposes the bill. Republicans, who have a 17-16 majority in the senate and no Democrats on board with the mining proposal, will not be able to pass it if Schultz stands by his decision to vote against the legislation. The bill is a central piece in a series of Republican-backed legislation intended to spur job growth in Wisconsin. Republicans say the bill will create hundreds of Wisconsin jobs, but Democrats argue the bill does not do enough to protect the environment or allow enough input from citizens who would be affected by the mine. The Assembly passed it in January. Andrew Welhouse, spokesperson for Sen. Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, acknowledged the bill’s importance, but said he is still optimistic a compromise can be reached with Schultz by the end of this legislative session in two weeks. “He’s got his opinions on what he wants the bill to be,” Welhouse said in reference to Schultz. “We are hopeful that we can come to a product that has the support of

a majority of the senate and the majority of the assembly.” State Rep. Robin Vos, R-Rochester, and state Sen. Alberta Darling, R-River Hills, made small changes to the bill last week, hoping to sway Schultz’s decision. The changes allow citizens to contest mining permits after they have been issued, but leave challengers to find proof in the cases instead of getting help from the state Department of Natural Resources. Schultz said he can not support the bill because he said it does not give the general public a fair fight when contesting environmental permits. But he also said he wants to find a compromise. “Considering the high price of expertise and the wealth of talent available to the applicant and the DNR, compared to that of the general public, that doesn’t strike me as a fair fight,” Schultz said in a statement Monday. University of WisconsinMadison Professor Dennis Dresang refrained from calling the current session a failure from the Republican perspective if they can not pass the bill, but said it is pretty hard for Republicans to feel good about job creation in general. “The whole idea of creating jobs is pretty much a failure,” Dresang said. “Wisconsin is way behind the rest of the country in creating jobs. It’s obvious it’s been pretty frustrating for [Republicans] to do anything.”

City delays Brooks Street apartment plans By Abby Becker The Daily Cardinal

A city planning commission stalled in making a decision on a proposed apartment complex on North Brooks Street Monday because of conflict between city and university building guidelines. Property owner Joseph McCormick presented a proposed plan to tear down two existing apartment buildings

at 202-206 N. Brooks St. and replace them with one five-story apartment complex. The apartment complex is designed for students with two-, three- and four-bedroom units, bicycle and moped parking and a modern design. “It’s going to serve the students at UW and is very attractive and will serve the market for years to come,” project architect Joe Lee said.

The Plan Commission referred the proposal to the Urban Design Commission, which will review the proposed apartment plans for a third time. The Plan Commission’s concern included the proposed building’s height and how far it would be set back from the street. McCormick’s proposal also conflicts with guidelines for

Coalition working to help students vote over break With upcoming elections, a student group is working to ensure other students participate in the vote over spring break. Coalition members will register students to vote and help them request absentee ballots at tables in Memorial Union and Union South from noon until 2

p.m. and at Gordon’s Commons from 6 until 8 p.m. all week. The vote which will take place April 3, will be for the presidential primary race, county executive board and local judges. Vote Coalition founder Hannah Somers said students need to request absentee ballots in order to

participate in the vote if they plan to leave Madison over spring break. “It’s really important that students request their absentee ballot because the process is really complicated and we want to make sure that everybody is able to vote in the April 3rd election,” Somers said.

n the concrete, construction-infested, one-way streets of Madison there lurk a variety of specimens both rare and overpopulated. Walking to class, many of these breeds can be spotted in their natural habitat. Let us go on a safari of sorts to familiarize ourselves with these beasts of Badgerland. The first and most prevalent specimen is the retinusavoidicus, more commonly known as the shifty-eye. This animal avoids eye contact at all costs. Many have speculated why the aversion to locking glances with a stranger is so undesirable, but the main conclusion is this animal is merely uncomfortable in intimate situations or those involving the unknown. They often go to great lengths to avoid looking at someone they know until the last possible second, even when it is clear they saw them coming from several feet away. Local myth says when two shifty-eyes meet each other’s

gaze they become mates for life. Ahoy! Watch out for those animals handing out Bibles on the corner. This creature belongs to the broader Class of religiosofigur-makesmeuncomfortab. When the Biblehander is encountered, animals like the shifty-eye may even go so far as to pull out a phone and pretend to text someone or pull up the hood of his or her jacket to avoid eye contact with the Bible-hander in an even more dramatic fashion.

The Moped Rider is generally the alpha-male or female of their pack and exudes great physical attributes and strength. Other animals generally recognize the warning signs exuded by the Bible-handers (e.g. the extended arm, the general look of goodwill all over their face) and avert their path,

borrow a technique from the shifty eye, or—the bravest of the pack—smile and politely say “No, thank you.” The Biblehander is a friendly breed, but beware, they may ensnare you in a lengthy discussion you wish to be no part of. Travelers can find a peculiar beast in the lesser-traveled terrain of the Metro bus. This area is greatly inhabited by roaming animals. There is no exact explanation for why they are drawn to this location, but, like moths to a flame, they often meander along the same path on a daily basis. Communication between the species busriderae-loco is infrequent, yet vocalized sounds are common and seemingly made at random. My observations have led me to conclude their main form of sustenance is artificially flavored cheese puffs. An easily discernable species is that of the Moped Rider, part of the phylum Athletic Department. The Moped Rider is generally the alpha-male or female of their pack and exudes great physical attributes and strength. These animals are high in demand amongst the Barry Alvarez tribe for their skills and ability to dominate other creatures from neighboring loca-

tions. They are known to consume large varieties of protein, but they survive as omnivores. A more rare breed is that of the immersedinmusicae or the Beat Bumper. This animal is enamored by auditory stimuli and has antenna-like fixtures covering its hearing holes. During their journeys across the Badgerland terrain they often flail in gestures similar to the beating of drums or mouth communication without actually making sound. The bolder of this species occasionally sing their mating songs out loud to the curious stares of fellow animals. These are just a few of the multitudes of species found in this temperate climate. The overarching generalizations made are the exclusive conclusions drawn by me in my observations over the last twoand-a-half years, yet I feel they may resonate with others who travel to this spirited location and join in the commute across its solid terrain. Spotted any other curious creatures roaming the streets of Madison lately? Send your lists of badger beasts to Jaime at jbrackeen@wisc.edu, and be sure to include you own scientific nomenclature for said beasts.

Body of UW-Stevens Point student found in river Police found the body of a missing UW-Stevens Point student in the Wisconsin River near the university Monday afternoon, officials said. Eric Duffey, a Fitchburg native and 2009 graduate of Verona High School, was last seen leaving a bar at around 1:15 Saturday morning after celebrating his 21st birthday. Police began searching the Wisconsin River Monday after UW-Stevens Point organized a search Sunday. About 150 volunteers and tracking dogs surveyed the town and did not find Duffey. Officials removed the body at around 1:10 p.m. Monday and the coroner’s office identified Duffey shortly after. Police say they do not suspect foul play was involved. Zach Kleemann, Duffey’s roommate said “goofball” is the best word that could describe Duffey, who Kleemann said was “a truly amazing young man.”

“He was always trying to make others feel better,” Kleemann said in an e-mail. “I don’t know if I’ve ever met a bigger practical joker, and we had quite a few team stunts between the two of us as well.” Duffey was an avid Brewers, Packers and Badgers fan, Kleemann said. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and canoeing. He was an active member of the Wildlife Society and planned to major in wildlife ecology. Kleemann said members of the UW-Stevens Point community have come together to support Duffey’s family and friends. “We had hundreds of students and civilians assisting with the search, many of whom did not even know Eric,” Kleemann said. “The outpouring of support from friends, neighbors and complete strangers has been amazing.” —Anna Duffin

Police say Madhatter’s patron hit Madison man in face with glass bottle A Madison man needed fifteen stitches after being hit in the face with a glass beer bottle at a downtown bar by another man early Sunday morning. Police reported the incident took place at Madhatter’s Bar, 322 W. Gorham St., at 2:06 a.m. Sunday. The 24-year-old man said he “accidentally bumped” into another man at the at the bar near the top of some stairs. The

suspect then took several steps back down the stairs before hurling a glass beer bottle in the victim’s face, according to Madison Police Department spokesperson Joel DeSpain. The victim described the male suspect as white, 5’6” to 5’8” and 150 to 170 pounds. The victim also described the suspect as having shaggy brown hair, according to a police statement.

“Hopefully, they can come to an agreement with the university on something that everyone can agree upon.” Scott Resnick alder District 8

UW Facilities Planning and Management Director Gary Brown said the campus master plan calls for academic and research facilities, including an addition to the Educational Sciences Building to be built the on the corner of Brooks and Dayton streets.

Although the city and university’s plans direct the type of construction in the southeast campus area, Ald. Scott Resnick, District 8, said they are recommendations and “more of a ‘should-do this’ than a ‘must-do this.’” Resnick said although he understands the conflict, the new apartment complex would be replacing the current dilapidated structures, which were built in 1905 and have no other historical relevance to the neighborhood. In situations similar to this, developers have compromised and built “less-concrete” structures with a shorter life span, according to Resnick. However, no agreement has been reached. “Hopefully, they can come to an agreement with the university on something everyone can agree upon,” Resnick said. “If not, this is why we have city commissions and city council to try to figure out these disputes.”

R&D Magazine named the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, which opened in 2010, the top laboratory of 2012 in part for its unique open interior design.

Institutes for Discovery named best lab of the year By Shannon Kelly The Daily Cardinal

A little over a year after opening, the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery has been named the 2012 Laboratory of the Year for its innovative architecture and laboratory design. The WID is a biomedical research partnership located on the UW-Madison campus that includes the privatelyfunded nonprofit Morgridge Institute for Research and the publicly-funded Wisconsin Institute for Discovery. R&D Magazine, a research and development magazine, selected the WID for the award as part of its annual contest, crediting the building’s architecture as the primary factor. The openness of the building’s design is intended to foster collaboration between the two institutes that it houses. “It’s certainly a huge compliment to the people who work here,” Interim Associate WID

Director Matthew Weed said. “It’s the culmination of a hardfought, well-organized, wellconsidered plan that I think speaks actually as much to the people who have been involved ... as to the people who are involved now.” Weed also praised the building’s openness for its ability to increase communication between different disciplines of scientists. “This isn’t the standard laboratory building,” Weed said. “Here, you’ve got [scientists] who think about a lot of different things and that’s a really creative and new way of trying to attack the old problem of how to get scientists to be as creative as possible.” He also said the building, which includes a garden and coffee shop, encourages visitors to the lab and creates an environment where community members can engage in conversations with scientists.

“It’s meant to help the nonscientists interact with both scientists and with the people who work in the building to facilitate our getting ideas from outside the walls of the scientific lab, and that’s a very unusual and extraordinary opportunity,” Weed said. Weed added the institute received the award in part from its environmentally friendly design, which includes an ability to retain heat, earned the building a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold rating. According to Krakauer, all these features combine to give the WID a unique interdisciplinary character that sets it apart from competitors. “It’s both the culture of the building and the reflection of the culture in the architecture,” he said. “We wanted a building that would effortlessly promote collaboration among these communities.”

Dane County judge set to hear voter ID court case One of multiple lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of the new law requiring a photo ID to vote will be heard after a ruling from Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess Monday. The League of Women

Voters is suing Gov. Scott Walker over claims the voter ID requirement disenfranchises certain groups. Niess said the League is in a good position to argue on behalf of eligible voters who are “too physically infirm, mentally ill,

impoverished, itinerant, elderly or simply neglectful to comply” to the law, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. The voter ID law was passed last summer, but was first put into effect during the Feb. 21 spring primary elections.

ulty compensation. Faculty Senator Noah Feinstein said he wanted to consider other options that focus more on building loyalty rather than using economic incentives to keep faculty members at UW. In addition, the report proposes an increase in the number of out-of-state students admitted to UW, an attempt to further increase revenue. Faculty Senator Sara Goldrick-Rab said the university needs to keep in mind that the pool of nonresident applicants is “not as deep” as that of resident applicants. “We know that faculty would not want to see for example the average test scores

or the average qualifications of students decline if we increase admission and in the case of nonresidents that is in fact what appears would happen,” said Goldrick-Rab. Barham said it is important for students to know that the faculty understand tuition can only be a piece of the solution. “We are really unhappy with a situation where the efforts to improve our salary almost always circle back to having to get students to pay more tuition because we don’t think our salary should ride on the back of student tuition,” said Barham. “Now that’s not to say student tuition isn’t always going to be a part of it, it is.”

have been getting job offers from competing institutions, causing concern over the possibility of losing faculty, and an eventual decline in the university’s quality. “People will say, ‘Well I got a Ph.D. and I’m a good professor and I do good research and I teach well and I’m going to take those skills to another place and make use of them where they understand the investment universities are offering to their people and their economy and their society,’” said Barham. The report recommends the university consider increasing tuition to create a revenue source that can be used to improve fac-

very once in a while it is required that a columnist takes out a personal frustration in print, for everyone to see and comment on. Once a week usually does it. So what has me pulling my hair out this week?

I’ve been looking for a drummer for four years. I was in a band once, and it was glorious, making music and playing it for groups of people was such a rush. Since coming to Madison, a school I thought would have a great music scene, I have auditioned for two bands and formed countless contacts with other local musicians. Are any of them drummers? A few, but none of them have a set down here, or can bring their set

down here. It’s not for lack of trying though. Almost every conversation I have turns to music at some point or another, and almost every time it comes to “oh, that’s cool, I play guitar too,” before conversation devolves into each of us trying to out-hipster each other. Why, in all of my drunken music conversations at parties, have I not found a drummer with a set down here? My cousin is a drummer for crying out loud, and he lives only 10 minutes from me, but he’s got no set to play on. I just want someone to jam with. Sure, I p l aye d in a

ska band (go ahead and laugh, I’ll wait), but just because that was what I played in high school doesn’t mean it’s all I can play. It seems like that’s been the stumbling block for the auditions I’ve been to. “What styles of music have you played?” “Well, I was in a ska band a few years ago…” Always I get the same sad smile. It’s not like I don’t know how to play. I can play all kinds of styles, mostly because I’ve been sitting here for four years with iTunes on shuffle, learning random songs. There’s a bug that you get when you’ve been in a band that makes you want to do it again, even if things didn’t go very well the last time. The breakup of a band isn’t something that leaves you so jaded you quit music altogether, it just leaves you wanting more.

Why, in all of my drunken music conversations at parties, have I not found a drummer with a set down here?

Isn’t there anyone in this town who wants to start a good old-fashioned rock band? Or a punk band? What happened to college being a time of try-

Where did the dreams of trying to be a rock star go? When people ask me what I want to do with my double majors in creative writing and Spanish I always answer the same way. Plan A is to be a rock star. They smile and nod, but I’m serious. This is really just a desperate addition to my “rock isn’t dead” series, a hope that someone will read this and drop me a line about needing a space to store their drum set. If not, this is a desperate plea for all of the drummers in town to walk around with signs that say “Drummer for hire” so that musicians in need can find you.

March melodious madness Celebration of the month of March needn’t be limited to fans of basketball. Spring is quickly approaching, and what better way to celebrate than with songs that remind us that winter also has a due date? March on, arts lovers:

In anticipation of next week’s South By Southwest festival, several artists will be releasing their latest albums Tuesday, March 6. Look for releases from White Rabbits, Xiu Xiu, Miniature Tigers, Magnetic Fields, Kaiser Chiefs, Bruce Springsteen, Ava Luna, Andrew Bird and more. Always , the eighth album from avantgarde, post-punk band Xiu Xiu, is not something you’ll want to snuggle up to. The sound can be likened to getting lost in a carnival fun-house: disorienting, frightening and strangely fascinating. Although this album is not for the faint of heart, the work has been praised as an excellent addition to the bands repertoire and evocative musical representation of heartache. Love at the Bottom of the Sea , the Magnetic Fields’ latest production, is by no means the masterpiece of their anthology, but it is worth a listen. The album is packed full of love songs, a catchy and pop-infused litany of amorous tunes that are a deserving backup to 69 Love Songs . Both Love at the Bottom of the Sea and Always will be released March 6. Look for reviews of Andrew Bird’s latest album, Break It Yourself , and White Rabbits’ album Milk Famous in The Daily Cardinal later this week. In film, audiences can look forward to the on-screen reemergence of comedian and actor Eddie Murphy. “A Thousand Words,” starring Murphy, concerns a fast-talking, sly-witted literary agent who

can talk someone out of their money with ease. After crossing a mysterious doctor with mythical powers, he realizes that his words are now numbered—and so are his days. If it lives up to how it sounds, it very well could be a movie you’ll only want to see after several bong hits and a hankering for bad comedy. For a bit more promising of a film, turn to “Footnote,” starring Aliza Rosen, Lior Ashkenazi and Shlomo Bar-Aba. “Footnote” is the story of a father and son in academia, constantly competing for a leg up. After the father is to be awarded a acclaimed prize, familial strife and jealousy creates a rift between the pair that will come down to nothing short of sabotage. It has been getting generally favorable reviews for its dry humor and stylistic flair. “A Thousand Words” as well as “Footnote” will be released Friday, March 9. Other movies that will be released this Friday include “Silent House,” “John Carter,” “Friends with Kids,” “The Decoy Bride,” “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,” and more. This Tuesday, March 5 promises the release of another wonderful distraction of having our noses to the grind. Enter “Street Fighter X Tekken,” a fighting game that marries two huge fighting franchises. Available for both Xbox 360 and Play Station 3, the game is a synthesis of 2D and 3D styles and is easy to control but entertaining and creatively challenging.

Brianna Decker scored the Badgers’ lone goal in their loss to Minnesota-Duluth. Mark Johnson says his team is learning from that loss as it prepares to defend its national title.

ship is so close, players and teams can get easily distracted by looking ahead. But as Johnson has said many times this season, Wisconsin is taking it one game at a time. “You get down to eight teams, anybody’s capable of beating anybody,” Johnson said. “You have to be able to execute under the circumstances.” Execution of the small things is a key part in the Badgers preparation. Under the circumstances of the one-and-done situation that Wisconsin will see Saturday, the team that is able to do the small things better will put themselves in a good position. Wisconsin does have an advantage in Saturday’s game as playing at home in the playoffs certainly helps. Last weekend’s loss to Duluth is evidence of that.

“You’re comfortable in your surroundings,” Johnson said. “You have routines, you have certain habits.” Along with the familiarity of playing at home, the hometown crowd that comes along with it helps to build the energy and excitement of the game. “This is the third leg in our season,” Johnson said about the NCAA Tournament. “You win Saturday, you move into the Frozen Four and an opportunity to go after another national championship.”

The young net minder made 26 saves Friday and 31 Saturday against the Gophers, allowing only three goals. “He played in areal tough environent and played well, and we’re going into another tough environment,” Eaves said, “that doesn’t seem to rattle him to much. He just kind of stands in there and does his thing so we hope that continues.”

Last time they met...

Wisconsin last met Denver Feb. 18-19 at the Kohl Center. The two teams split the series. Complete effort After the Pioneers won 3-0 in the series opener the Badgers responded with a dominant 5-2 victory in one of their best all-around efforts of the 2011-12 season. “We had a lot of shots on goal, a lot of chances and played well defensively,” junior Justin Schultz said after that win over Denver. “So I’d say that was one of the best games we’ve played this year.”

Men’s Hockey

Badgers’ confidence at a high Wisconsin’s recent play has it feeling good about its postseason chances By Ryan Evans The Daily Cardinal

Encouraged by its results at the end of the regular season the Wisconsin men’s hockey team (11-15-2 WCHA, 16-16-2 overall) heads into it’s road WCHA playoff series with No. 9 Denver (16-8-4, 21-11-4) with what head coach Mike Eaves calls “legitimate” confidence. The Badgers closed out the regular season winning four out of its last five, three of those wins coming away from home. The team stumbled to a 1-8-1 record in its first 10 road games of the season, something Eaves said has Wisconsin feeling good about itself ahead of its series with the Pioneers. “We feel [confident] from the inside out,” Eaves said. “Intrinsically we’ve been on

the road here the last couple weekends, we’ve won three out of four…I think intrinsically we know what it takes [to win on the road].” Denver is still fresh in the Badgers’ minds having played them at the Kohl Center just three weekends ago. Wisconsin defeated the Pioneers 5-2 Feb. 18 in the series finale in one of the Badgers’ most complete games of the season. Eaves said the memory of that game lends itself to his team’s confidence. “I think that is what part of makes our feeling legitimate is having played well against them here and taking that and using that as we go forward,” Eaves said. The Pioneers play on a small ice sheet (200-by-85 feet

as opposed to the Kohl Center which is 200-by-97 feet), something Eaves said his team will prepare for, but isn’t unfamiliar with after having swept Bemdji State—who plays on a small sheet—on the road two weekends ago.

Wisconsin played its best hockey of the year to close out the regular season, thanks in large part to the contributions and increased confidence of young players like Brendan Woods.

Women’s Hockey

Wisconsin learning from loss to Duluth, preparing for Mercyhurst By Matthew Kleist The Daily Cardinal

The No. 1 Wisconsin women’s hockey team (23-3-2-1, WCHA, 31-4-2 overall) is in a position that it has not seen often in the past two seasons. The Badgers are coming off a loss to Minnesota-Duluth in the WCHA Final Face-Off this past weekend and will host Mercyhurst in the NCAA Quarterfinals Saturday. “We are excited about hosting another quarterfinal game,” head coach Mark Johnson said Monday. “It’s an exciting time. We are in a good position. Now it’s time to prepare for Saturday night’s game.” The Badgers are not too familiar with the position that they are in, only having lost three games this season prior

of those things add up into us having a basic feeling that we can get the job done should we continue to play like we are.” Playing in the Mile-High City comes with its own unique challenges due to the elevation, something Eaves said he is accounting for and as a result will lighten the Badgers’ conditioning workload at practice this week. “We’re going to bring down the volume a bit [in practice] because we’re at the end of year,” Eaves said. “We’re downsizing the volume of what we’re doing to keep ourselves sharp this time of the year.” According to Eaves the feelings of confidence are spreading through the Wisconsin locker room, and that is especially noticeable among the team’s numerous young players, such as freshman forward Brendan Woods. Woods was the latest center to fill in for concussed junior forward Derek Lee on the Badgers’ second forward line, doing so this past weekend against Minnesota, and Eaves said was impressed with the job the 6-foot-3-inch center did against the Gophers. “Brendan is playing with great confidence right now and what’s really nice is to have a big guy in the middle,” Eaves said. “He seems to be doing a good job with his play without the puck which is always your question mark as a young center ice-man.” But to Eaves, the most important growth he has seen in the Fairfax, Va. native—who has five goals and 10 points this season—has been in his on-ice demeanor. “The has been great growth with Brendan in the fact that
