Goblins, Gouls, G.H.O.S.T.  By CHRIS COPPEDGE

AAPSU’s Student Government Association held its annual Halloween event “Great Halloween Options for Safe Trick or Treating” Sunday, Oct. 30. G.H.O.S.T. serves as a safe trick-or-treating alternative for the children of Clarksville. G.H.O.S.T. was packed with trick-or-treaters of all ages, with a variety of activities, candy and costumes on display. Cady Denton, SGA vice president, served as the coordinator for G.H.O.S.T. alongside SGA adviser and dean of students Gregory Singleton, as well as the SGA Executive Board and

other members. “Without continued participation from student groups and their interest in community outreach, the event simply would not be the success it is,” Denton said. This year, 75 student groups registered for total of 96 tables for the event, Denton said. The event had also been advertised in The Leaf Chronicle , online and at local schools and daycare centers. The tables were spread out through the center of campus. Looking to repeat last year’s success, activities at this year’s G.H.O.S.T. included face painting, trivia, “haunted’” attractions and lots of candy,

8th annual AP Debate Forum Update to ‘University to showcase student opinions Master Plan’ in the works  By MORGAN SMITH

Master Plan lays out future changes to campus, new construction, renovations  By MORGAN SMITH

A new “University Master Plan” for the renovation and reconditioning of APSU’s campus is in the planning phase. According to the current Master Plan, APSU has many long-standing structures in need of revamping and an overall organizational flow that doesn’t work with it’s growing enrollment numbers. The idea behind the Master Plan is to make APSU a public institution with many “private” features. Ideas include a more powerful gateway entrance, so as not to confuse visitors and a pedestrian connection to downtown Clarksville and Riverfront. The plan also aims to create a village-like atmosphere more inviting to conversation and group activities. One of the ideas included in the plan is an additional plaza for student gathering. Currently, APSU has one plaza in the center of campus, across from the MUC, designated for student assembly. It is often overcrowded and seating is hard to find. “One student gathering space currently

being considered is between the Hemlock Semiconductor Building and the new Math and Computer Science building,” said Mitch Robinson, vice president of Finance and Administration. “Other ideas will certainly be explored once the designer begins the planning process.” “The first academic priority will remain as it has for that last 10 or so years, renovation and addition to our Trahern building,” Robinson said. Parking seems to be a main concern for many students, especially commuters. As enrollment continues to grow, the university will require increased parking in the future. According to Robinson, there is ample parking for the number of students enrolled, but the new Master Plan will include a parking analysis. Although the plan is in its beginning stages, a general layout and schedule is already in the works. When students hear about major renovations, one of the first concerns is a rise in tuition. According to Alvin


The 8th annual AP Debate Forum sponsored by the Department of Communication will be held from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2, in the Music and Mass Communication Concert Hall. Each year the department raises a question or issue relevant to both the students and Clarksville community to engage students in a public discussion. This year’s topic is whether or not American citizens should be required to complete at least two years of military service after reaching the age of 18 or graduating from high school. “The purpose of the AP Debate Forum is to provide an opportunity for students taking public speaking to practice the skills they are learning in class in a real life setting,” said Stacie Mumpower, communications instructor and public speaking coordinator. The annual AP Debate Forum is a popular event each year. “We see between 300 and 400 in attendees each year,” Mumpower said. “Some of the attendees are from around campus and in the community as well.” Many of the faculty who teach public speaking courses also attend to see their students in action. “I admire anyone who can get up in front of a large or small group of people and speak. It takes guts to do and a lot of people don’t realize how much confidence it takes to

do it until they’re faced with it themselves,” said Angel Lopez, a U.S. Army soldier and freshman at APSU. The Debate Forum aids in helping students to see the value of public speaking. “It’s so important to know how to speak in public well,” said Whitney Beaird, student and Resident Assistant at Sevier Hall. “Public speaking comes in handy for most fields, if not all fields, because you are constantly going to be speaking to people. If you cannot speak properly and confidently investors won’t work with you, employers won’t hire you and you’ll likely never move up to where you want to be.” The Department of Communication invites all students to take part in the forum. For the first time they’re utilizing Facebook and Twitter to involve the audience and students in the debate. “The Department of Communication Chair, Mike Gotcher, actually came up with the original idea to use social media so audience members could submit questions the debaters and audience speakers would answer,” Mumpower said. “It is a departure from the previous format of the debate, and I think it will be a lively event as a result.” During the debate the audience can ask questions to the debaters via Facebook and Twitter, and also give real-time feedback. Students are encouraged to like “AP Debate Forum” on Facebook and follow “#apdebateforum” on Twitter before the event. TAS

Denton said. One of the most unique groups was Phi Kappa Phi’s “Candy for the Mind” children’s book giveaway table. “Each kid gets one free book,” said member Callie Hedges. “This is really for more underprivileged kids and their learning and development. It’s something in addition to having fun and getting candy on Halloween.” This is Hedges’ first year helping out Phi Kappa Phi, as the previous three years she helped the International Student Organization. “It’s definitely a different perspective working this table,” Hedges said. In a similar vein, the Physics and Chemistry Club had a “Grimm’s Fairy Tale” castle, complete with Rapunzel. “We’ve got the castle, and we’re all dressed as fairy tale characters too,” said member Robert Baker. “Each year we try to have a theme. Last year, it was classic 8-bit videogame characters.” The Tri-Beta Biology Honors Society took up the videogame reigns this year. “We have

the inflatable Super Mario Bros. castle,” said member Krystle Irizarri. “We’ve got people dressed as characters and the music playing. There’s a lot of kids here tonight, and it always seems to go by really fast.” Also onboard for the festivities was the three-group teamwork effort of Delta Tau Alpha, CCSC and the AG/Pre-Vet Club. “This year, we all joined together to make a haunted tunnel,” said DTA member Tracee Gruskiewicz. “It’s difficult to do because we want to have it be scary, but also appropriate for kids. I do like that G.H.O.S.T. is during the day, it’s much safer for the kids.” G.H.O.S.T. began in 1996 as a program originally meant for the children of APSU students, faculty and staff. It quickly grew and, in recent years, has attracted more than 2,000 people from the campus community and surrounding areas. It has become one of the SGA’s signature events. The city of Clarksville itself has no input regarding planning or running the event. “It is an APSU tradition in which we reach out and welcome community children and their parents,” Denton said. TAS


Westerman, director of Facilities Planning and Projects, the renovations considered in the Master Plan “would not have a direct impact on tuition costs.” “If [there are] going to be renovations done on campus, I think the first step should be to get the opinion of the students who attend the university. We go here everyday and most of us have pretty strong opinions about what could be changed or upgraded,” said junior Cara Chamberlain. Robinson said student opinions and suggestions will be considered. “There will be student representation on the Master Plan Committee, as well as opportunities for student input during the planning process. Most of those details will be worked out with the designer and university,” Robinson said. Westerman added, “Once the Master Plan has been reviewed and endorsed by the president, it will certainly be released by publishing it on the university website.” Westerman also notes the current plan is already out for review and those in charge “eagerly await” the input of students.

Tennessee agrees to stop arresting Occupy protesters  ASSOCIATED PRESS Nashville, Tenn. — Tennessee officials agreed Monday, Oct. 31, to stop enforcing a new curfew used to dislodge Occupy Nashville protesters from the grounds around the Capitol. The protesters went to federal court seeking a temporary restraining order against Gov. Bill Haslam, arguing the curfew and arrests of dozens of supporters violated their rights to free speech and freedom of assembly. State Attorney General’s Office Senior Counsel Bill Marett announced at the beginning of a hearing before Judge Aleta Trauger that the state would not fight efforts to halt the policy. The judge said she had already decided to grant the restraining order because the curfew was a “clear prior restraint on free

speech rights.” “I can’t think of a more quintessential public forum than Legislative Plaza,” Trauger said. State troopers used the curfew put into place on Thursday to arrest 29 protesters early Friday and 26 people early Saturday. Both times a Nashville magistrate refused to jail the protesters, saying the state didn’t have probable cause to arrest them. They were released with citations. The Nashville protesters are part of the sixweek-old Occupy movement, which began in lower Manhattan to decry corporate influence in government and wealth inequality. “This is a huge victory for us because Gov. Haslam has realized the mistake that he made,” Occupy Nashville protester Steve Reiter said. The two sides have until Nov. 21 to reach an agreement or go back to court for a hearing on a preliminary injunction. TAS

AP APOLLO 34 acts grace the stage in battle for the best talent  By CONOR SCRUTON

As part of Homecoming festivities, the Govs Programming Council held its annual AP Apollo talent show on Wednesday, Oct. 26, in the Red Barn. Contestants have less than six minutes to show they have what it takes to win the $500 first-place prize. This year’s show had 34 acts, with performers offering musical numbers to clogging and comedy sketches. Nikki Talley took first place with her a capella rendition of Lauren Hill’s “Killing Me Softly.” When asked how it felt to win AP Apollo, Talley said, “It feels kind of unreal ... and $500 is a lot of money.” The second place winner of $200 was Molly Swiatek, who sang Adele’s “One and Only,” accompanied by Aric Marine on keyboard. The $50, third-place prize was awarded to Madeline Kiser for her show-closing performance of Reba McEntire’s song “Why Haven’t I Heard from You.” After Kiser finished performing, the AP Pom Squad performed a dance routine while the judges chose the three finalists, who were to be placed later through the audience’s applause.

The contest was judged by Carrie Harris, Kim Morrow and Gregory Singleton. “It was difficult, but we [came to] a consensus,” Morrow said. After the finalists were brought back onstage, the applause for each performer was thunderous, but there was no mistaking who their favorite act had been. “I’m really glad Nikki won,” said freshman Emily Thomas. “You could tell everyone was rooting for her.” Second-place winner Swiatek recalled the shared anticipation among the contestants backstage. “Everybody wanted to listen to everybody,” she said. “A lot of us have become close friends.” The event has seen a major increase in acts since last year, from about 17 to 34 this year. The increase created more competition, but also allowed for a more shared experience. “I always have a good time on stage,” said Dalton Akins, who performed a clogging/swing dancing number with partner Crystal Gordon. Singer Sara Groves said, “It’s super fun. You can be whoever you want to be on stage.” AP Apollo was open to all students and the Clarksville Community. For any APSU students interested in showing their talents, it’s never too early to start preparing for next year’s show. TAS


Percussion Ensemble feature Voodoo,‘Fantasia’ musical sets  By LORI PERKINS

The Halloween Percussion Ensemble was performed on Friday, Oct. 28., in the MMC. The concert featured David Steinquest, professor of percussion, along with musicians who played tambourine, xylophone, drums and more. The event featured Voodoo themed songs and musical sets from “The Illusionist” and the Disney classic “Fantasia,” which was displayed on a screen as the musicians played along. President Tim Hall also celebrated his birthday and greeted guests before the show. “I’m expecting the same wonderful show. This is one of the best performances of the school year. I have my wife and daughter as my dates.” In 1985, David Steinquest started a small, comedy/concert act where musicians would play percussion instruments. Back then, the audience had to wear a costume. Now, 26 years later, costumes are not mandatory and the event has grown into two shows, so everyone can attend. Every

year a new act is performed, and every year the concert is sold out. The auditorium was filled to capacity with APSU students, faculty, staff and Clarksville community members, many wore costumes. Steinquest dressed up as a long, gray-haired wizard who conducted the musicians, and interacted with the audience along with his assistant. A popular act this year was the “Harry Potter” themed performance. “I think I try to make it fun and interactive,” Steinquest said. In between acts, as the musicians changed the positions of the instruments, the wizard and his “assistant” humored the crowd with silly magic tricks. For Erica Smith, it was her first performance in the ensemble. “It’s cool when we interact with the audience and to see the kids’ face[s].” All of the musicians wore costumes and the auditorium was fully decorated in Halloween fashion. The mood was colorful, the sounds were melodic and the enthusiasm of the

Lady Govs’ loss to Morehead State ends 2011 season  By ANTHONY SHINGLER

Win and they were in. That is what the Lady Govs had to do on the Death Valley trip over the weekend to qualify for the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament for a second consecutive year. The Lady Govs were in a must-win game Sunday, Oct. 30, against Morehead State. However, Morehead State (9-7-3 Overall; 4-4-1 OVC) had other plans for the Lady

Govs. For the second-straight year, they put an end to the Lady Govs season in Morehead. This time, it was in the regular season finale with a dominant 7-2 win. “We really played our worst game of the season today,” said head coach Kelley Guth. Morehead jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the 21st minute on a header from Brittany Kiracofe. The Lady Govs cut the Morehead State lead to 2-1 on a penalty kick from Tatiana Ariza in the 29th minute, but the surge

from the Lady Govs did not last long. Morehead State scored a goal in the 37th and 43rd minute for a 4-1 lead headed into halftime. Morehead State piled on three more goals for a 7-1 lead. Natalia Ariza added one more goal for the Lady Govs in the 74th minute when she beat two defenders and the keeper for the final score of 7-2. The Lady Govs were out shot in the game 8-16. They were led by junior Jocelyn Murdoch and sophomore Joceline

Quiceno with two shots a piece. Tatiana Ariza finished the season leading the OVC in almost every offensive category. She is at the top of the stat list in points, points per game, goals, goals per game, assists, assists per game and tied for first in game winning goals. The Lady Govs finished eighth with a 3-5-1 OVC record (9-8-1 overall). The team was ranked first in attendance, points and goals. They finished second in assists and third in shots. TAS

Panthers claw Governors Eastern Illinois steals Homecoming game victory with 19-10 win, Ryan White completes his second 100-yard running game

VS. Last home Football game this Saturday at 1 p.m. against Central State


For the first 15 minutes, everything went the Govs way. They won the coin toss. They marched down the field and scored on their first two offensive possessions. They dominated the time of possession, controlling the ball for 12:41 of the first 15 minutes and did not commit any turnovers. However, the game continued after the first 15 minutes and instead of a happy homecoming, the EIU Panthers’ dealt the Govs their fourth loss in a row, 19-10. The loss drops the Govs (2-6, 2-4 OVC) to seventh in the OVC. It was the Panthers (2-7, 1-6 OVC) first conference win of the season. Freshman quarterback Landon Curtis got his first start of the season in front of more than 5,000 people. He didn’t turn the ball over, but did not throw any touchdowns either. Curtis completed 14-of-30 passes for 111 yards. “I thought I played pretty good, took what the defense gave me,” Curtis said. “Other than that we just didn’t make the big plays when we needed to.” Curtis was assisted by a solid running game. The Govs’ out-rushed the Panthers 215 to 181 yards. Senior running back Ryan White led the way with 23 carries for 115 yards and a touchdown. Junior running back Wesley Kitts added 86 yards on 11 carries. White’s touchdown was the Govs’ only touchdown of the game. The 8-yard

power run to the end zone came at the end of the Govs’ first offensive-drive. The Govs’ only other score was a 21-yard field goal kicked by kicker Stephen Stansell. “Landon Curtis played a good football game. He had four or five drops. If those are caught, he has a couple of TDs and goes around 18-of-30 with no fumbles or interceptions,” head coach Rick Christophel said. “Ryan White and Wes Kitts rushed the ball well. This game came down to field position. With a freshman quarterback throwing the ball 30 times, we ran into trouble. He had a good football game, but we didn’t help him out enough.” The Panthers’ produced only nine yards of offense in the first quarter, but they pounced in the second. Panther’s sophomore quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo launched a 52-yard bomb to junior receiver Chris Wright for their first score at 11:11 in the second quarter. Garoppolo threw another 34-yard missile to freshman tight end Sam Hendricks that set up a two-yard touchdown run by running back Jake Walker. “We’ve got to start getting the wins,” Curtis said. “When we keep it close like that, we’ve got to get wins because it’s heartbreaking to go out there and work so hard every week, then come out here and lose like this, especially during a homecoming game.” The Govs’ next opportunity to win will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, in their last home game against Central State.

Governor’s Own Marching Band raises Homecoming spirits


If there is one thing that is not hard to find at APSU, it is school pride and spirit. You can find it anywhere you look, especially on a Saturday during a home football game. This is especially true when you bring up the Governor’s Own Marching Band which adds to that the background and thrill of Homecoming week. The Governor’s Own Marching Band is under the direction of professor John Schnettler, director of

athletic bands at APSU, and he is all about getting the fans and the football team into the fighting spirit. Their number one tool to pump up the crowd and team is cooperation. “We coordinate everything we do with the cheerleaders and pom squad. So during cheers and chants, we are doing it together at the same time,” said Schnettler. Besides the band director, the band also has three equally important field commanders Johnny Tubbs, Katie Wells and Nicole Shrembek. Shrembek said, “It’s just the energy they bring to the field and their overall pep. When they get peppy,

I get peppy and vice versa.” The band has a core of school pride and spirit, and in the case of a sporting event, especially a homecoming game, it spills over to the team and crowd and brings it together to make the experience of Govs’ football games worthwhile. Wells said, “I always try and get them hyped from a big smile.” They will be performing their halftime show again one last time this Saturday, Nov. 5, for their final Govs’ home game as they take on the Central State University Marauder’s at Governor’s Stadium.
