ELECTIONS 2012

Johnson’s former chief of staff to run for House seat Jerry Clarke latest addition to list of GOP candidates BY MATT RICE STAFF WRITER

Another candidate is in the running for the seat of Rep. Tim Johnson, R-15, who dropped his bid for re-election last Thursday. Jerry Clarke, Johnson’s former chief of staff for nine years, announced his candidacy for the 13th congressional district Monday at the Champaign County Courthouse. Clarke said he is motivated to serve because he knows about Congress’ problems and can solve them. “I’ve seen the dysfunction of Congress up close, the partisanship, endless gridlock and the failure to solve the serious problems we face,” he said. “The people of central Illinois see the impact of an incompetent Congress: lack of job growth, bad roads, high taxes and endless debt. I believe we can do better, and I’m ready to serve.” Clarke, who is currently chief of staff for Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, is a University alumnus and Urbana resident. He is also a war veteran who served three tours in Iraq. The announcement adds Clarke’s name to a list of Republican hopefuls that includes State Rep. Adam Brown, R-Decatur; Rodney Davis, aide to Rep. John Shimkus; R-Collinsville and Mike Tate. “There are a lot of people out there who could win the seat, but I’m glad Jerry threw his hat

into the ring,” said Phil Bloomer, Johnson’s spokesman. “The guy’s a natural leader.” Habeeb Habeeb is treasurer for the Champaign County Republicans and running for Champ a i g n More inside: County Check out R e pu bl i the editorial can chairman.

Counties are awarded weighted votes based on primary turnouts, and Champaign county received the highest number of voters, Habeeb said. If elected chairman, Habeeb will be one of 14 chairmen presiding over a nomination committee. “On (April 20), we expect that those elections will be certified,” he said. “Nothing really can happen before then.” There is no state central committee person in the district, so Illinois Republican party chair Pat Brady appointed himself as chair of a non-voting committee. “I just want to make sure that we keep this seat and the rest of the seats we won in 2010 because we want to turn this state around,” he said. David Bender, campaign manager for Clarke, is optimistic about the candidate’s chances. “We now have to convince a majority of 14 county chairmen,” he said. “(You have to) lay out

Student organization features style competition, runway show BY LAURA SHAY DAYTIME ASSISTANT EDITOR

The second-annual College Fashion Week began Monday night with a concert at the Canopy Club featuring performers Beats Antique and Random Rab. College Fashion Week, founded at the University last year, is an independent student organization that aims to give students across the nation the opportunity to be a part of the fashion community. Jennifer Ruppert, founder of the organization and senior in Media, is anticipating increased student involvement this year. “It’s going to be huge this year,” she said. “This is our second year on campus ... so now people get the gist of what (College Fashion Week) is, see what it would be like to get involved (and see) that it’s more than just fashion.” The week will highlight current indus-

try trends and intends to inspire interest in design, style and event coordinating, Ruppert said. In addition to students interested in fashion, it will also provide an outlet for those in advertising and marketing, graphic design and other majors. Working all school year to plan the week of fashion events, the student group looks to provide real-life experience for the members. Nicole Rojas, vice president of marketing for College Fashion Week and senior in Media, was in charge of the group’s marketing subcommittee, which specializes in social media and marketing for the event. “I was surprised by how well my education prepared me for this,” she said. “It was fun to push myself ... to develop this idea.” Secretary for College Fashion Week Jessie Whitman said organizers of the event work all year for this week.

Visiting lecturer focuses on Middle East issues

BY CARINA LEE STAFF WRITER

Duke University professor of economics and political science, Timur Kuran, visited the University last night to give a lecture on the “Religious Obstacles to Democratization in the Middle East.” The event was part of the Cline Symposium and intended to allow students to gain more insight on certain issues in the Middle East, said Scott Althaus, Associate Director for Cline Center for Democracy and associate professor in LAS. “The focus of the Cline Symposium is to pick out important issues affecting the democracy of both the U.S.A. and the world and provide a forum for the students at the University of Illinois

In addition to her work with the group, Whitman also runs a fashion blog — dirtylittlenotions.blogspot.com — which she said will feature insider information on College Fashion Week’s events. Whitman’s blog will include interviews with industry professionals who will attend the events this week. Events planned for the rest of College Fashion Week include a student style competition and a Fashion’s Night Out party, which all lead up to the Premiere Runway Show on Saturday night. The Premiere Runway Show will take place at the iHotel Illinois Ballroom at 7 p.m. Saturday. The runway show will feature student designers Gordana Rasic and Omar Villalobos of GOCA Designs, Polly Bland of Paulie Antiques, Brent Rawlinson of Vintage by Bike, local Champaign boutique Le Shoppe and Chicago designer Wanda Grace.

Scott Althaus, left, of Savoy, listens to a presentation by Dr. Timur Kuran at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center. Dr. Kuran discussed the developing democracy in the Middle East on Monday. and community,” he said. Kuran pointed out the impact of political development and the history of the economic systems in the Middle East. He also spoke about the conditions needed for a civil society. He said obstacles in economic development related to issues with business trends. “Small and short-lived enterprises do not face the sorts of communication problems through the institution pre-activity,” Kuran said. “(But it) became a major economic handicap for the region during the industrial revolution across the efficient exportation of modern technologies (which) required large and per-

petual companies.” Linda Brown, certified veterinary technician in the College of Veterinary Medicine, said she came to the public lecture to learn more about political science. “I thought it was very interesting and offered a lot of insights as to why the Middle East is not a democracy,” Brown said. She said that the lecture gave her an opportunity to think about how a democracy should not be required for every country but rather as an option. “I think that there are a lot of changes that need to be made, but it’s not something we (the United States) can do for them,” she said. Althaus said the event provid-

ed a chance for people to better understand the issues that the Middle East is facing. “I think we have succeeded in raising the attention of the campus and people who are participating here to some of the issues that we need to understand in order to move into the next step,” he said. After the lecture, a Q-and-A section was held for attendees to ask Kuran questions. The lecture was a follow-up event from a forum that was held yesterday at the Materials Science and Engineering Building called “Looking Back at the Arab Spring: Why It Happened, Why It Matters Today and What’s Coming Next.”

The method by which faculty leaders will weigh in on the search for a new provost was on the mind of the members of the Senate Executive Committee, or SEC, at their meeting Monday. Members of the committee were encouraged to attend the public forums that introduced the three provost candidates last week and then submit feedback on each candidate. Senate chair Matthew Wheeler suggested that committee members combine their comments and submit them as a whole, even though the provost search website only allows comments to be submitted individually. Not all SEC members supported sending in their comments together. Nicholas Burbules, member of the SEC and chair of the general university policy committee, said he was concerned with the committee’s involvement in the search. “Obviously, as individual people, we can weigh in as we want,” he said. “I’m a little concerned about something that might look like SEC taking a position on the candidates collectively, as a committee, especially if... the person the SEC favors is not actually chosen.”

Or, he said, they could also indicate that they are part of the committee if they submit feedback online. “If we sent (our feedback) directly to her, maybe they’d be given a little bit greater weight, since we have participated in several things with the candidates, as opposed to putting them on the website,” Kim Graber, University Senates Conference representative, said in agreement with Aminmansour. Joyce Tolliver, senate vice chair, added that the search committee and Chancellor may find it useful for anyone who submits feedback to weigh relative strengths and weaknesses of each candidate and recommended the SEC do this, too.

SEC FROM PAGE 1A vost, brought up the procedures for disciplinary punishments in the University’s statutes. Wheeler said this section of the statutes provides a policy for dealing with cases of severe sanctions short of dismissals. The article calls for the development of procedures on each campus, which will be adopted by the Chancellor “in consultation with the Senate.” Wheeler said the procedures

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

had already been approved by the Senate, and he believes they will be approved by the Chancellor in the near future. However, this was not the first time a set of procedures has been developed. In 2003, similar steps were drawn out but never adopted. Wheeler said this past development hadn’t been brought into conversation at the previous meeting. “My main concern is it would have been appropriate to have had that history as part of the conversation,” he said. “The other has to do with what motives

it might have been for it to not have appeared. I can assure you I wasn’t trying to hide from the action of the Senate, but I do regret that it wasn’t there to talk about.” Tolliver said that, although it may have been beneficial to discuss the 2003 procedure, she believes that the Senate did everything right at the last meeting. She feels it is now up to the chancellor to make the final decision regarding the current procedure. “As long as everyone understands what happened, we should go forward,” she said.

Members of the Senate Exectuive Committee meet in the English Building. Discussion about the committee members’ involvement in the provost search was brought to attention Monday.

REP RACE FROM PAGE 1A your credentials and your vision, and it’s up to the county chairman to decide who will be best to face the opponent in November.” Fellow Republican Brown is set to challenge Clarke for the seat. “I look forward to the 13th congressional district getting the voice it deserves in Washington,” he said. Whoever wins the nomination will have to face democrat David Gill in the November election.

“This is a lean Democratic district, and David is the only candidate chosen by real people. The Republican is going to be chosen by the party bosses, running (in order) to limit contraception and tax breaks for millionaires,” said Mike Richards, press spokesman for Gill. “Whoever runs, we are talking about a Republican party that will have extremely unpopular policies. That will weigh down whoever the Republican party candidate is.” State Sen. Mike Frerichs, D-52, said he sees the Republican field in a similar light.

“I’ve worked with Jerry before — I think he’s a good guy — but I think he would be a weaker candidate than Congressman Johnson,” he said. “I think anybody they pick would be a weaker candidate than Representative Johnson.” However difficult the election may be, Clarke said he plans to pick up where Johnson left off. “Tim Johnson was a strong voice of reform,” he said. “Most importantly, he was a fierce opponent of out-of-control spending. I’ll be a determined advocate for these same reforms and many more.”

ORLANDO, Fla. — A grand jury will not look into the Trayvon Martin case, a special prosecutor said Monday, leaving the decision of whether to charge the teen’s shooter in her hands alone and eliminating the possibility of a fi rst-degree murder charge. That prosecutor, Angela Corey, said her decision had no bearing on whether she would fi le charges against George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who has said he shot the unarmed black teen in self-defense. Corey could still decide to charge him with a serious felony such as manslaughter which can carry a lengthy prison sentence if he is convicted. A grand jury had been set to meet Tuesday in Sanford, about 20 miles northeast of Orlando. Corey has long had a reputation for not using grand juries if it wasn’t necessary. In Florida, only fi rst-degree murder cases require the use of grand juries. Corey’s decision means she doesn’t have to rely on potentially unpredictable jurors, said David Hill, an Orlando criminal defense attorney. “Let’s give her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she knows

that he is not surprised by the decision to avoid the grand jury and hopes a decision is reached soon. “The family has been patient throughout this process and asks that those who support them do the same during this very important investigation,” said attorney Benjamin Crump. The case has led to protests across the nation and spurred a debate about race and the laws of self-defense. Martin was black; Zimmerman’s father is white and his mother is Hispanic. One of those protests led to the temporary closing of the Sanford Police Department offices to the public on Monday as about a half dozen student activists blocked the entrance to the building. Police officers took no action to remove the protesters who were part of a group of students who marched from Daytona Beach to Sanford over the weekend. Citizens wanting to do business with the police department were directed to City Hall. “The city of Sanford hopes the actions of the students will be as peaceful and orderly as the previous rallies and marches have been,” City Manager Norton Bonaparte Jr. said in a statement.

there isn’t enough for fi rstdegree murder but she wants to maintain control and charge him with something else,” Hill said. “What does she need a grand jury for? She cuts out the unpredictability of the grand jury. She goes where she feels she has more evidence.” Corey took over the case last month after the prosecutor who normally handles cases out of Sanford recused himself. That prosecutor, Norm Wolfi nger, had originally called for the case to be presented before a grand jury. “From the moment she was assigned, Ms. Corey noted she may not need a grand jury,” said a statement from Corey’s office. Prosecutors sometimes use grand juries to avoid the political fallout from controversial cases. But Corey was elected by voters more than 100 miles away in the Jacksonville area, so political problems are less of an issue for Corey, Hill said. Martin was killed Feb. 26 during a confrontation with Zimmerman in a gated community in Sanford. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense, and Florida’s self-defense law gives wide leeway to use deadly force and eliminates a person’s duty to retreat in the face of danger. An attorney for Martin’s parents said in a statement

Bomb threats keep Pittsburgh campus on edge BY KEVIN BEGOS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PITTSBURGH — Dozens of bomb threats at the University of Pittsburgh, including at least four on Monday, have made professors start holding classes outside and forced security officials to put in new building access measures and offer a $50,000 reward for information. Some students “are definitely afraid,” said Brian Haughwout, a junior who had one of his final exams changed to a take-home because of the disruptions. “But I think just shutting down the university would be a mistake,” he said, adding that’s probably what the person making the threats wants. The threats began in mid-February, at first targeting a landmark building at the center of campus. But in recent weeks numerous buildings have been threatened. Four threats had been made by mid-afternoon Monday, starting at about 4 a.m. Student Dawn Diehl, who’s studying for a master’s degree in library science, said it wasn’t

until a few days ago that the bomb threats started to affect her in terms of “my feelings of security.” “So now it’s pretty alarming,” she said. “We’ve never had an experience like this. I kind of have that feeling like, where’s this going to end?” Diehl was surprised Monday to find all but one door to the main library locked and everyone’s bags being searched. Under new security measures, students and faculty members will need school IDs to get into buildings. Non-residents won’t be permitted in dormitories. University police, the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service have said they have a person of interest in the investigation. Authorities say some of the threats have been traced to or through computers in Austria, but nobody has been charged with making them. Fifth-year chemistry student Brian Graham said the first threats were written on walls in buildings and he hoped security officers would catch the perpetrator. But, he said, threats then started arriving by email.

“I think it’s a little bit more nerve-racking,” Graham said of the latest wave of threats. “I have to either stay later or come in different hours. I would be about to leave home, and then there’d be a bomb threat.” Graham says he’s confident that Pitt officials are doing what needs to be done to protect students and find the person responsible. “It seems that they’re taking all the appropriate steps,” he said. The threats have caused some professors to move classes outdoors or offer them online and have led some students to stay offcampus. The university, located a few miles from downtown Pittsburgh, has about 3,800 full-time faculty members who serve 34,000 students. The university is urging faculty members to make arrangements for students to make up classes or exams missed because of evacuations, but it says there are no plans to end the semester early. No bombs have been found, and nobody has been injured, but police say the building evacuations will continue if warranted.

Homeowners association may face implications in Martin killing BY MIKE SCHNEIDER AND TONY WINTON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANFORD, Fla. — If Trayvon Martin’s family sues over his death, they might not target George Zimmerman but instead the homeowners association of the neighborhood where the shooting happened and Zimmerman lived. That’s because if Zimmerman’s claim that he shot the unarmed 17-year-old in self-defense is upheld by prosecutors, a judge or

a jury, Florida’s so-called stand your ground law would protect him from a lawsuit. But his clearance or acquittal wouldn’t stop Martin’s parents from suing The Retreat at Twin Lakes homeowners association — and its insurance policies and assets would make it a much more lucrative target than Zimmerman, even if he is eventually convicted of a crime. Plus, lawyers say, Exhibit A would be a newsletter sent by the association to residents in February, the

same month as the shooting. It said Zimmerman was the go-to person for residents who had been the victims of a crime. Under the heading “Neighborhood Watch,” the newsletter’s message recommended that residents first call police and then “please contact our Captain, George Zimmerman ... so he can be aware and help address the issue with other residents.” That seeming endorsement of Zimmerman exposes the seven-

year-old association to possible legal action by Martin’s parents, homeowners association attorneys said. “It’s almost like if you give your son the keys to a brand new Corvette when he turns 16” and he gets in an accident, said Roberto Blanch, a South Florida attorney who specializes in homeowners associations. “You may be seen as enabling the occurrence or the loss.” By designating Zimmerman the neighborhood watch captain in the newsletter, the homeowners associa-

tion “is stuck” if it’s sued, said Justin Clark, an attorney based in Longwood, Fla., whose practice includes real estate law. “So, if you’re going to send out a newsletter saying, ‘Hey, he is the captain. Whatever he says goes,’ You have now basically rented a free police officer for your neighborhood,” Clark said. “He certainly took on that role with the homeowners association, and it seems to me that they recognized that.” One of the Martin family’s attor-

neys, Daryl Parks, indicated last month that a civil lawsuit against the homeowners’ association was likely. “They mention George Zimmerman by name as the captain for the neighborhood watch, and they tell you if you see something suspicious, call the Sanford Police Department and call George Zimmerman,” Parks told board members of the National Association of Black Journalists last month. “So the close nature of the working relationship is as clear as it can be.”

POLITICAL CARTOON LANGSTON ALLSTON THE DAILY ILLINI

University will miss bipartisan US Rep. Johnson

Hopes soar that successor will continue legacy of crossing aisle; former challenger Gill rises in urban area

In

a sense, it’s disheartening to see Rep. Tim Johnson, R-15, dropping his seventh re-election bid for Congress in an apparent retirement from more than 40 years of public service and representing Champaign-Urbana. Even in a left-leaning University town, Johnson commanded a sense of respect and rapport that most other politicians would envy. Whether he was circling the track at the Activities and Recreation Center on campus or being an advocate for the University while regularly communicating with constituents, the Urbana High School alumnus who also obtained two degrees from the University will be missed. We’re disappointed to see Johnson leave his seat but wish him the best in his future plans, which he said will include spending more time with his family. The 65-year-old Congressman said the next three years he’d spend working a seventh term on Capitol Hill could make up half of the rest of his life, and he seems pretty eager to leave Congress behind. Johnson’s retirement at the end of this term leaves his re-election record unblemished. But now, with Johnson out of the race, there is no longer an incumbent in the newly redistricted 13th District, giving David Gill — the Democratic candidate thrice defeated by Johnson in the current 15th District — the edge

he might need in order to be elected. The new, more urban district, which now includes Springfield and parts of Bloomington-Normal, already makes the seat more accessible to a Democrat. Already, the Republican Party is scrambling to find Johnson’s replacement. His former chief of staff, Jerry Clarke, has thrown his hat into the ring. We’ll see how much Clarke learned in his 10 years working under his mentor, Johnson, while the congressman represented Champaign-Urbana and the state of Illinois. We hope that regardless of political affiliation, the next representative of the 13th District will embrace Johnson’s policy of crossing party lines, a habit that made him one of the most independently voting Republicans in the House in recent times. And in an era of fierce squabbling between parties, if you’ve got the bipartisan horn, toot it. Johnson leaves behind him a legacy of cooperation and communication, one that all incoming representatives should maintain.

Two-tier tuition proposal eliminates equal opportunity NORA IBRAHIM Opinions columnist

I

llinois’ recent budget crisis has driven University administrators to get creative with ways to garner funding and slash expenses, like dismantling long-standing institutes and implementing steep tuition hikes. Tough times call for desperate measures. But the University is not alone in facing a cash-strapped future. Somewhere across the waves of grain, California lies in unrest as its once-notorious higher-education system begins to crumble at its base. The Golden State no longer has the resources to subsidize the demands of the state’s education system, and it has the universities’ minions tugging at their collars in desperation. So they called for desperate measures. The trustees of Santa Monica College in California approved in March a two-tier tuition system that, if followed through, may set a new prec-

edent for dealing with financial shortcomings. Under the plan, popular classes in higher demand would cost four times as much per unit, or $180, compared to original prices. According to the community college, the raise in price on only certain classes would help buoy the financial burden off lower income students, rather than causing widespread, equal damage to the entire student body. They might not have anticipated that the seemingly harmless plan would summon student protests shortly thereafter, nor that the media coverage would throw hysterics over more excessive pepper spraying by its campus police. But their grossest oversight: The tailored tuition increase slams shut the open-door policy that community colleges so proudly hold to their mission statement. Santa Monica trustees might be so involved in trying to remedy the budget stresses of the community college by policymaking, they forget its most important objective: to serve the academic needs of the citizens of its district.

Reo Wilhour, director of admissions at Parkland College, said the state of Illinois hasn’t had a discussion that echoes the plans that Santa Monica is drafting. Rather, minimal tuition increases are maintained yearly to help buffer the effects of losing state funding. “Our mission statement is to engage our community in learning. It requires us to look at all socioeconomic groups in the community; we need to take the income distribution of the community into account,” Wilhour said. “This (two-tier plan) is totally inequitable to students across the board.” In light of public response, including dissent from the California state government, the Board of Trustees voted Friday to delay the tuition-fee increase until more feedback has been gathered. Still, Santa Monica holds the torch forward in the bizarre grey light of legality issues with the two-tier plan, which if executed without indepth discussion, can spearhead similar change at university and community colleges across the nation.

Average tuition costs across the country

LIKE YOU MEAN IT

Rates for community colleges are roughly similar across the nation. California, however, drops the national average significantly. Average tuition: ! including California: $2,963 ! excluding California: $3,288 ! in Illinois: $3,117 SOURCE: THE COLLEGE BOARD

But it is important to note how California community college tuitions are unique to the nation. According to the College Board, the national average for community college tuition and fees, at $2,963, is brought down by California because of its unusually low prices. If California weren’t to be considered, the average jumps up to $3,288. The notoriously low California tuition rates made its community colleges once the most easily accessible when the state wasn’t scrapping by. But that certainly isn’t the case today. “The reality is that there are hundreds of thousands of students who are not getting access to community college — and access has always been what we are famous for,” said Paul Feist, the vice chancellor for communications of the California Community Colleges. Instead of struggling to keep prices from the heyday, while singling out lower-income students from registering for certain classes, Santa Monica should investigate the effects of raising its baseline tuition to more closely reflect trends for community colleges nationally. The two-tier tuition plan, though perhaps an honest effort under the antiquated notion that lower costs increase accessibility, is a clear disconnect from a community college’s original intent: to provide all citizens equal opportunity to a public education. Key words: equal opportunity.

You will not be able to close your eyes, brother. You will not be able to know the true primary winner at 10 p.m. central time because our revolution will not be televised. The revolution will not be re-runs of Jack Bauer saving the day in the fi nal 24 seconds, or Megyn Kelly acting as “fair and balanced” as a fox telling a rabbit, “Hey, let’s just be friends.” She’d rather lie than see our revolution be televised. As the revolution grows, it will become the true mainstream. “The system is so broken that it can afford to be broken again” is a story you will never hear on CNN. Wolf is too blitzed to ever criticize a war: When your boss tells you what to say, you are in no position to lead. You cannot be considered a reporter, you are just an employee. The revolution will not be brought to you commercial-free by the warrant-less onlookers at AT&T, or the other companies that will notify Homeland Security if you’re watching a series too serious about democracy. In our country, corporations will limit every chance to criticize — and so our revolution will not be televised. There will be no images of pigs gunning down brothers on the instant replay. There will be no sounds of a pig gunning down Trayvon on the instant replay. The revolution will not have laws like “three strikes and you’re out,” and there will be no radicals suggesting that smoking a joint deserves a sentence of 25 years to life. A revolution is about the context if it is about anything at all and will not reduce a person’s life to a game of baseball. The revolution will not be led by our first half-white President because he left the other side in Chicago. A revolution won’t break your heart to gather votes for re-election because principles shouldn’t change from the first term to the second. A revolution is action when words can’t satisfy and will begin when the halls of injustice become occupied. Don’t be afraid of what you haven’t seen because every revolution begins as a dream. You’ll feel that it’s real as it builds up inside. Never a re-run, brothers: Our revolution will be live. (Dedicated to the late Gil Scott-Heron)

ART THEATER access to the kinds of films The Art Theater showcases, but for them to be accessible in a movie theater. “Comedies are funnier, horror movies are scarier ... you can’t just pause the movie to go make some food ... you have less control and the filmmaker has more,” Hess said of the distinctions between watching at home and watching at the theater. So the cozy atmosphere and friendly staff-customer relations are not to lure people away from the multiplexes, but to convince them to leave their house instead of streaming an independent film in their living room.

FEARLESS FROM PAGE 6A And the sisters seems to have accomplished that as they have grown from nothing to now planning their own fashion show in a matter of months with no outside investors helping them along the way. In addition to their own site, they not only make use of Facebook and Twitter, but reach out to YouTube celebrities as well. Marnelle finds that a lot of their success is due to meeting the right people at the right time. Grace Ajanaku, senior in LAS, met the Sincerely Fearless co-founders at a previous fashion show and is now helping them develop their first original show, which will take place April 20th. While their accessories have been highlighted during shows in the past, “Clothing Optional” will be their first big show specifically geared toward their collection. The fashion show will take place at Soma at the end of April.

Overcome your smartphone before it takes over your life MARISA GWIDT Features columnist

M

y best friend and his iPhone are lovers. They exercise, listen to indie rock and cook dinner together. They never fight. As is the case with most young people and their smartphones, my best friend and his iPhone are inseparable. I can’t picture him without it. I’m sick of it. As a graduate student, I’m old enough to remember a simpler time when people would walk their trash to the dumpster without bringing along their cell phones. This was the same era when people would order pizza without the Internet, forego Facebook for half a day and know how to use a paper map. Before the cancerous spread of the smartphone, I naively thought there might be a return to this pleasant time. Boy, was I wrong.

four do my classmates sit laptop, iPad and iPhone-free. In the other classes, my classmates text, type and Tweet to no end. Maybe they’re listening to the professors, but I certainly have a harder time doing so between their continual clicks and taps. Am I the only one who finds this rude? Does eye contact mean nothing anymore? Have professors come to the conclusion that smart devices are an unavoidable, minute-by-minute aspect of life? Classrooms aren’t the only locations in which young people seem to care-freely log onto the Internet. I see folks sitting in groups in restaurants, walking with friends and even playing recreational basketball while using smartphones. These sites make me cringe. What could possibly be so technologically urgent that it’s OK to ignore the people you’re with physically? As an American who has spent most of her life in America, I believe the stereotype about Americans being impatient is more true than not.

devices let us have it. Companies like Apple aren’t making it any easier for us to grow up and learn to wait. My best friend doesn’t believe he is impatient or discourteous when it comes to iPhone use. He uses it at work in a discrete manner, refuses to text while driving and selfeducates regularly with instant Google access. He believes he is a responsible smartphone user, and comparatively, he’s probably right. Responsible users have power over their smartphones. They can turn smartphones off during movies, leave smartphones in the other room when showering and outsmart smartphones with shortcuts to favorite locales. The sad truth is that smartphones aren’t going anywhere if my best friend or anyone else I know has anything to say about it. I guess I have to accept that. So, the question becomes: How can people stay smarter and more civilized than their smartphones?

Illinois Tax School helps UI students prepare for Tax Day

BY MORGAN QUILICI STAFF WRITER

With the April 17 IRS tax filing deadline quickly approaching, some students may be scrambling to submit their last minute returns, but most likely, their parents have already filed their taxes for them. According to an article for USA Today College, 61 percent of students have their parents file their taxes for them, whereas 33 percent do it by themselves using software packages or by hand. This is most likely because the tax significance is greater for parents if they claim their student, than it is for the students to claim themselves as independents. However, miscommunication can come into play here if students and parents file their taxes separately. “A problem that I see with student returns is (that they) don’t know whether (their) parents claimed them or not,” said Gary Hoff, associate director and editor of the Illinois Tax School. “So, if (their) parents claimed them as dependent, but the student files the return on their own first, then the parents return bombs out.” The Illinois Tax School, which is sponsored by the department of agriculture and consumer economics, produces a 700-page book each year as an education tool on taxes. The school is home to about 6,000 students each year, and they are taught the latest on federal tax updates and issues involving tax payers. Although the school doesn’t provide very many resources for students who

need help filing taxes, they try to lend an ear to those who have questions. “Typically if we get a call from a student we try and answer their question, but (we) don’t prepare the returns,” Hoff said. Besides the Tax School, students have had trouble finding resources on campus where they can get help filing their returns. International Students Services can give students a password to a software package that deals with the non-resident tax returns, but that is about it. “I haven’t been aware of any resources that help students file taxes or give (any) information about it,” said Will Jones, senior in LAS. “I want to be more independent about how I do things, and it’s probably better that my parents don’t take care of it and I learn how to do it myself.” Mayuri Parmar, freshman in LAS, agreed that it would be nice if the school provided some resources for students, especially international students. “A lot of students live far away and can’t always just go home and have their parents do it for them,” Parmar said. Hoff suggests that if students are looking to start filing their taxes by themselves for the first time, they should look to free tax computer software to do so. “There’s IRS Freefile and they’ve got about three different vendors where you can file your return for free using the software package,” Hoff said. “I recommend that rather than going to the office supply and purchasing a package because typically a stu-

dent return isn’t going to be that complicated.” However, Hoff recommends that students read the software directions very carefully and follow them exactly. “A pro is it’s free and the con is (that) if you fill in the blanks wrong, it’s going to be a wrong return and you may never know it because it prints out what looks like a perfectly great tax return,” Hoff said. As for when students should begin filing their taxes, Hoff said, “If I were a student, I would have had my tax return done as soon as I could because in all probability, I’m going to get a refund and I want that money rather than the government using it!” Hoff recommended for students to come to an agreement with their parents about claims and keep records of all of their information. He also said it’s important if you hire someone else to do your taxes for you, that you make sure they are caught up on the frequent tax laws and changes. “You need to understand what (the accountant is) doing within the laws themselves because ultimately it’s going to affect you,” Hoff said. Being knowledgeable about the process of filing taxes is crucial, even if the student is not currently filing taxes themselves. “Some day you’re going to need to know how to do them,” Hoff said. “Fortunately, computer software does lots of it for you, but if you don’t understand the law, you still don’t know if it’s right.”

Sister-run online boutique to hold 1st fashion show BY BECKY ZILIS STAFF WRITER

D

ear mall shoppers, unsatisfied online browsers and style-savvy students: Sisters Kate Manoucheka Airey and Marnelle Airey have developed a solution to help you fill the gaps in your unconventional wardrobe. Sincerely Fearless is here to appease all of your accessories needs. These women know what it’s like to walk in and out of stores empty-handed during the pursuit of accessories to accent their bold style. A mixture of frustration and inspiration culminated on the

weekend of July 4, 2011, when they decided to open an online boutique. “We would always go shopping, and there were never enough pieces that grabbed our attention, and we had to dig for the few pieces we found,” said Kate, junior in LAS. The Airey sisters immediately narrowed down their target audience to trendy stylistas who struggle to satisfy their fashion needs in conventional stores. SincerelyFearless.com was up and running by November 2011, with Kate Manoucheka on campus and Marnelle in Florida. “As of now, it’s easiest to sell online, but we do plan on vending on-site during events,” Kate

Manoucheka said. While Marnelle works on packaging and shipping out of her home, Kate works more on the creative aspects, which include participating in fashion shows and developing the site. When it comes to choosing items for sale, Kate Manoucheka and Marnelle sift through catalogs from wholesalers. The two take advantage of their different styles in order to cater to a greater audience. “I’m more conservative and girly, while (Kate) is more funky,” Marnelle said. The sisters keep each other in check, which can sometimes lead

to disagreements, as anyone with siblings can imagine. They always remember to have a mutual respect for each other and have made it a rule to only work with positive people, which has helped them grow as a business. “We plan on branching out to other markets like shoes and other types of accessories and maybe even clothing,” Kate Manoucheka said. Marnelle has a place in her heart for shoes and definitely sees a market for them in the future. “Accessories and shoes are like the frosting to an outfit,” Marnelle said. Kate always wanted to be an

entrepreneur, and she’s found motivation from the successes of other small business owners. Marnelle explained the inspiration for their drive originally came from their mother, who always imagined big things for her family. “She always wanted to start a venture and it never took off, but she always wanted us to be financially stable in life,” Marnelle said. Marnelle described her mother as a highly fashionable woman with big dreams. “With (my mother’s) passing, we really wanted to make a positive from a negative,” Marnelle said.

Art Theater provides atmosphere online video services lack BY KEVIN FERGUS STAFF WRITER

You won’t find “The Hunger Games” or “Titanic 3D” on the marquee at the historic Art Theater in downtown Champaign, and a lot of Champaign-Urbana movie-goers wouldn’t have it any other way. The 99-year-old theater has long catered to a niche of film lovers that prefer small thought-provoking films to the latest Hollywood fare. In addition to a lineup of documentaries, foreign and independent films, The Art Theater offers customers an experience that large multiplexes don’t.

“Normal movie theaters just kind of broadcast the new movie and don’t really interact with the audience at all,” said Art Theater employee Justin Franklin. Another employee, Sarah Flesher, said that she saw several differences between The Art Theater and multiplexes. “It’s cozier, it has a better ambience ... and we sell liquor,” she said. This business model has served The Art Theater well for almost a century, but it has started to show its wear recently. Last year, a group of Champaign-Urbana residents formed a co-op meant to raise $100,000 the theater needs

to buy new digital equipment. The industry is shifting toward exclusive use of this equipment, and The Art Theater needs to buy it to stay in operation. The theater’s owner, Sanford Hess, said that independent theaters have been struggling for several years, and it is difficult for places like The Art Theater to make the transition. The Art Theater may provide an atmosphere (and beverages) that the big chains don’t, but Hess explained that they are not the main source of The Art Theater’s economic trouble. Hess said that online video services like Netflix are independent

theaters’ main source of competition. Large theaters’, like the Carmike Beverley, film selection rarely overlaps with The Art Theater’s, he said. However, film distributors increasingly look to the internet as a way to make money on the kind of small and experimental films that The Art Theater specializes in. Hess said the problem has only grown in the past couple years, as distributors have experimented with new release models for smaller films. Historically, films typically had theatrical runs, followed by home video several months later. However, with the rise of inter-

net piracy, distributors want to make as much money as they can up front. This has led many small films to be released online at the same time — or even before — they’re released to theaters. “It used to be that you would build a movie’s reputation and its fanbase with a theatrical run,” Hess said, “but now the attitude is, ‘It’s going to get pirated anyways; let’s make as much as we can right away.’” Hess cited the comedy “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie” as an example of this new trend. The film has been available to download since January, but wasn’t

made available to theaters until March. The Art Theater isn’t showing it until April 14. The movie is based on the TV series “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!,” so it already has a built-in fanbase. Hess said this makes the problem worse. “There’s a lot of die hard Tim and Eric fans that absolutely had to see it, so they downloaded it, and we won’t be able to show it until months after that,” Hess explained. Hess believes that it is important not just for people to have

Sports Groce adds 2 ex-Ohio assistants to new Illini staff BY GREG ZECK STAFF WRITER

CHONG JIANG THE DAILY ILLINI

Illinois’ Meredith Hackett (9) prepares to bat against Indiana State. Hackett, the team’s leading hitter, has seen her average drop from .350 to .297.

Illinois’ 7-game losing streak marks longest in softball program history “Keep trusting each other and it will come. When (you) keep pushing it and keep willing it, it’s going to happen. We’re not going to give up. ” MEREDITH HACKETT, Illini leading hitter

BY SEAN HAMMOND STAFF WRITER

With three more losses at Nebraska last weekend, the Illinois softball team has extended its losing streak to seven games. The drought is now the longest in program history. Illinois was swept at Iowa and dropped a game to in-state rival Illinois State before being swept by Nebraska. During that stretch, the Illini’s record has dropped from 16-11 and 2-1 in the Big Ten, to 16-18 with a 2-7 conference record. The Illini currently sit in 11th place in the Big Ten, ahead of Michigan State, which has yet to win in conference play.

Illini offense has struggled to put runs on the board Illinois has scored just four runs in the seven losses. The team has mustered only 27 hits — fewer than four per game. “Our main focus (Saturday) was to keep the game simple,” head coach Terri Sullivan said. “When you’ve lost a few games, it’s actually series that you’ve lost. Sometimes you start to make the game more complicated than it is. There are currently no Illini hitters batting over .300. The Illini’s leading hitter, Meredith Hackett, has seen her average drop from .350 before the losing

streak to .297. She provided two of Illinois’ hits, including a home run against Iowa on March 31. “We just have to keep together,” Hackett said. “Keep trusting each other and it will come. When (you) keep pushing it and keep willing it, it’s going to happen. We’re not going to give up.”

Illinois pitching provides up-and-down performances

John Groce’s staff is starting to come together. The Illinois men’s basketball team announced Monday that Dustin Ford and Jamall Walker have been hired as assistant coaches. Both coaches served under Groce during Ohio’s Sweet 16 run in the NCAA tournament in March. “I’m pleased to add Dustin and Jamall to our staff,” Groce said in a statement. “These two coaches were with me at Ohio and will bring stability, continuity and knowledge of how we want to run the program here at the University of Illinois.” Walker specializes with guard play and helped D.J. Cooper earn All-Mid-American honors twice at Ohio. Besides two stints at Ohio, Walker has served as an assistant at Arizona, Murray State, St. Louis and Ball State, where he was instrumental in recruiting guard Maurice Ack-

er, the 2006 MAC Freshman of the Year. He is also a graduate of St. Louis, where he played basketball for four years, being named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team and helping the Billikens reach the 1998 NCAA tournament. Ford, meanwhile, was seemingly born to be a coach. His father is Gene Ford, the Muskingum College head coach and his brother, Geno, is the head coach at Bradley. Ford has spent the last four seasons at Ohio and will be working primarily with forwards. Under his tutelage, Jerome Tillman was named first-team All-MAC in 2009, and DeVaughn Washington and Ivo Baltic received AllMAC honorable mentions the past two seasons, respectively. Ford served as an assistant from 2006-08 at Western Carolina, where he helped bring in

Ruggeri’s late-match turnaround leads to conference title for men’s gymnastics BY EMILY BAYCI SENIOR WRITER

When senior Paul Ruggeri stepped up as anchor on the high bar for the No. 4 Illinois men’s gymnastics team Friday night at the Big Ten Championships, the announcers said to sit back and enjoy the show. Ruggeri is an international medalist and a Big Ten and NCAA champion on the event. But midway through his routine, the unthinkable happened. Ruggeri slipped off the apparatus, his only fall on high bar this season. Any chances of finishing with a high score were completely lost when he missed his dismount, counting as a second fall. Ruggeri received a 13.600, his lowest score of the season on high bar, and ended up not qualifying for the event finals. The missed routine was a huge setback for Illinois because the high score would have given the Illini a comfortable gap ahead of Penn State and Michigan before the final rotation. Instead, everything came down to the final event: the floor. Ruggeri has one of the highest start values in the country, but has been inconsistent all season. “I was pretty nervous after high bar because I knew that was supposed to be a big hit for my team,” Ruggeri said. Ruggeri, Illinois’ floor anchor and the final competitor of the night, nailed his routine, finishing second behind freshman teammate C.J. Maestas. The pair’s high scores propelled Illinois to its fourth-straight Big Ten title. Looking back, it was calculated that Illinois would have won by a few 10ths of a point if Ruggeri hadn’t hit his routine, but at that moment the Illini were fully dependent on Ruggeri, believing they needed a hit to win the conference crown. “I never felt that way in my life,” Ruggeri said. “I knew I had hit my routine and then that it had helped us win the championship.”

Big Ten gymnasts in competition for NCAA all-around title

Illinois’ Paul Ruggeri competes on the high bar during the Gym Jam at Huff Hall. Ruggeri has become an anchor for the team on highbar.

Ruggeri, Maestas and Michigan sophomore Sam Mikulak are constant competitors. The trio of all-around gymnasts are all hoping for spots on the 2012 Olympic team, but for now the focus is the NCAA all-around title, a crown that doesn’t directly affect their Olympic chances but could bolster their resumes. “Paul is a legend, he’s my brother and Sam is a buddy of mine,” Maestas said. “It’s friendly competition. And at the same time, we’re all looking for (the title). That’s what makes it good competition, we push each other. I’m just so proud to be a part of this, and it’s exciting to battle back-to-back.” On Friday night, Maestas (89.500) won the all-around crown, closely followed by Mikulak (88.900), who had a rough first three events, and Ruggeri (86.850), who made mistakes on

two of his best events. “These guys have been back and forth all season,” Illinois head coach Justin Spring said. “Any one of them has the chance to take it at NCAAs.”

Illini sweep conference awards At the conclusion of the conference championships Saturday night, Maestas won Big Ten Freshman of the Year and Gymnast of the Year. Maestas is the second freshman in a row to win both awards, as Mikulak did so last year. Maestas is the first Illini to win Gymnast of the Year honors since Wes Haagensen in 2007 and Freshman of the Year honors since junior Yoshi Mori in 2010. Maestas totaled six Big Ten Freshman of the Week titles this sea-

son, the most of any gymnast since the award began in 2010. “It’s exciting, more trophies to put on the shelf,” Maestas said. “It’s an honor for myself and my family and everybody out here who supports me, my friends and my brothers. It’s an honor to come away with those titles, and I hope I can come away with many more.” Spring won Big Ten Coach of the Year for the third season straight, claiming the title in all three of his seasons as Illinois head coach, something he credits to the Illini winning titles and his support staff. “We have a great balance of perspectives in mind, personality and energy,” Spring said. “No one is perfect and without (assistant coaches Ivan Ivankov and Daniel Ribeiro) the team would not be as strong.”

“I can’t lose my head when we’re in practice and I just have to always stay composed and always work hard, because I have younger guys looking up to me now. ”

Illini to host Panthers in midweek matchup Illinois concentrates on consistency as Battle at Busch looms Wednesday BY ELIOT SILL STAFF WRITER

Illinois will host Eastern Illinois in midweek competition Tuesday. Illinois (17-12, 3-3 Big Ten) is coming off a series victory at home against conference foe Indiana, while Eastern (12-16, 4-4 Ohio Valley) split a two-game conference series in Charleston, Ill., with Austin Peay State. Tuesday’s matchup is the first of two competitions between the teams this year. “I haven’t looked at anything on Eastern this year,” Illinois head coach Dan Hartleb said. “I don’t know if they have a winning record or a losing record; I haven’t looked at any stats. But I know they always play well against us, so we’ll need to be ready to strap it on.” Illinois is just 1-2 in midweek games this season and was 3-6 last season. The lllini look to reverse that trend this week, and that starts with consistency.

“We’re just trying to be as consistent as ... so when Tuesday comes around we’re possible and focus on every single pitch,” going to play Eastern and we’re not going left fielder Justin Parr said. “That’s a big to worry about Missouri even though we battle for us and something we battled play at Busch (Stadium), and it’s one of last year a little bit too, so that really those things not many people get to do.” carries into our midweek games.” Missouri is on a four-game losing Brian de la Torrienstreak going into a te (0-0, 4.76 ERA) will midweek game against get the start for Illinois, Arkansas-Little Rock on and Luke Bushur (1-0, Tuesday. 5.00 ERA) will take the “I wouldn’t think guys mound for Eastern.

“We had a couple pitchers, Kevin Johnson and Nick Chmielewski, that I heard — there may have been some other guys involved, but they were talking to the pitchers about picking each other up, saying, ‘These are things we have to do better,’” Hartleb said after Saturday’s win. “We have Willie Argo in the dugout; quite honestly, last year he would let umpires eat him up. ... And this year, he’s not letting them eat him up and he’s helping other guys to stay relaxed and stay focused.” Despite being a young team, upperclassmen leadership is seen by some as an area of improvement for Illinois. “Last year, we really didn’t have any vocal leaders, we just had guys who just went out and played,” Parr said. “But this year, we really had some great leadership from our senior class, and it’s really helped us, especially battling back-andforth for leads yesterday and today. “Getting to see these guys change from last year to this year has been awesome for me,” Parr added. “They’re great guys. They’ve really developed on and off the field, and that’s been a really cool part of our team to watch new leaders come up and the team culture kind of change a little bit, but for the betterment of our team.”

Pitcher honored following standout showing BY JAMAL COLLIER STAFF WRITER

Matt Milroy is no stranger to making relief appearances early in the game for the Illinois baseball team. The last time he’d done so in a Big Ten game was against Nebraska on March 24, when he came in relief for starter John Kravetz in the second inning. Milroy was unable to find the strike zone consistently, walking three, throwing a wild pitch and hitting two batters. He lasted just two innings. “I had a real long talk with (assistant coach Drew Dickinson),” he said. “It kind of just calmed me down and put things in perspective. I learned not to look into bad outings and focus on positives and make adjustments and that really helped me.” When Milroy was called on in the top of the third inning of Sunday’s game against Indiana, he knew the key would be keeping the ball in the strike zone. It was clear right away that he had his best stuff, as he struck out the side in his first inning of relief. The junior right-hander from Batavia, Ill., rode that momentum into a career day where he allowed only three hits in five innings, and struck out a careerhigh 10 batters. His strikeouts were the most by an Illini pitcher at Illinois Field since Jimmy

CHICAGO — Jonathan Toews skated swiftly up the ice as the center on a star-filled line with Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa. And when it was time to work on the power play, Toews’ familiar No. 19 was camped in front of the net. His presence and energy at Monday’s hour-long practice suggested Toews will be ready to return to the Chicago Blackhawks lineup when the playoffs begin Thursday night in Phoenix. The team captain and one of Chicago’s biggest stars hasn’t played in a game since Feb. 19, missing the final 22 regular-season games with a concussion. There’s a bit of rust, although Toews has been skating for a month, and a question of conditioning under game stress. And will he have any setbacks? A final decision on whether he’ll play in the opener against the Coyotes might not be announced until just before the game. “I’m very confident ... We’ll see when that time comes,” Toews said. “It’s playoff time right now, especially these last few games. You don’t know what to expect from other teams in the regular season, especially teams that aren’t going to be in the playoffs. So we want to err on the cautious side by me not playing.” Toews has 29 goals and 28 assists in 59 games this season. He’s a strong defensive player and the team’s leader. But the Blackhawks have regrouped during his absence and played well in the stretch to finish with 101 points, good for the sixth seed in the Western Conference.

FROM PAGE 1B runs in 16 1/3 innings but managed to pick up two losses, both by a score of 1-0. But the Illini have also lost by wide margins, giving up nine runs in the second game of the Iowa series and 11 in their first meeting with Nebraska on Saturday. Jackie Guy struggled in that game, walking three batters and giving up four runs in two innings, en route to the 11-0 blowout. “When Nebraska scored the first run of the game (Friday), I really felt that our team was deflated,” Sullivan said. “I think that had a lot to do with the previous one-run losses we had. Then we got really defensive at the plate instead of offensive.”

Nebraska a difficult environment to compete in Nebraska’s Bowlin Stadium is the newest of the Big Ten softball sites and is relatively unfamiliar to most teams in the conference. The venue has a reputation for its large and rowdy crowds. With the three victories over the weekend, the Cornhuskers have improved their record to 10-0 at home this season. At 7-2 in Big Ten play, they have also moved into a tie for second place in the conference with Purdue, one game behind Michigan. “They have a great environment to play softball in,” Sullivan said. “As a competitor and as an athlete, when you’re on the road you have to feed off of that. The crowd’s into it and there’s a lot going on. I think it’s great, it’s great for softball.” “Anywhere you go they’re going to have the home crowd fired up for their team,” Hackett added. “We try to not make that an issue. It didn’t really play a factor in our play.” The Illini will try to get back on track this week with a road game at Eastern Illinois on Thursday and a home series against Wisconsin this weekend. “The one big thing with this team is that they’re not comfortable or content with losing ballgames,” Sullivan said. “And we’ll see where they go next week with all of this.”

“I want to come back to the lineup and fit right in. The boys have been playing really well. At the same time I feel like I have missed out on a lot. When you are out of the lineup for almost two months, you are missing out on a lot of things,” Toews said. “Not always on the ice, but in the locker room, too. And on the road.” Toews said it’s not realistic to expect him to be the same player he was right away. “I just want to go out and play well and do the little things well. I think at this point that is all I need to do,” he said. “I said it before I’m not going to go out there and try to do too much, go out there and score three goals right away. Those sort of things just happen, just go out and play hard and let things happen.” Patrick Sharp said if Toews is able to play, he expects he’ll be effective against the Coyotes, who beat the Blackhawks three times in four games this season and has a red-hot goalie in Mike Smith. “I’ve been out for long stretches and then came back,” said Sharp, who was sidelined earlier with a wrist injury. “I anticipate him to come back and pick up right where he left off...He’s a great player. He’s played well in the playoffs in the past and he’s a big part of our team, so we welcome him back with open arms if he’s able to play.” If Toews can play on that line, Kane would switch to left wing. He’s played well as a center late in the season and is more accustomed to the right side when he’s on the wing. But he’s ready to make another switch, if necessary.

the season and led the team in hit batsman (eight). Milroy pitched himself into trouble against Indiana as well, walking three and hitting another batter. “He’s been his own worst enemy as far as being ahead of hitters and just hurting himself with both walks and hit batters,” Hartleb said. “When he throws strikes, he’s tough because he’s tough to pick up: very good velocity, a sharp breaking ball.” Milroy said he had to go back to high school to remember the last time he had such a high strikeout total. When he came

into the game, he got Hoosier hitters to swing at and miss his slider. When Indiana adjusted, he began to primarily use his fastball. By the end, he had seen seven hitters go down swinging. Hartleb said he thinks Milroy could be a major difference in the Illini’s season. For now he’ll make his impact out of the bullpen, where he has an ERA less than three, compared with one more than nine in two starts this year. “We haven’t had a lot of upperclassmen that have gone out and done their job on the mound,” Hartleb said. “To get him in the

Reid Roper Not to be overlooked, second baseman Reid Roper was named Big Ten co-Freshman of the Week. He went 5-11 for the weekend with a triple, two RBI and scored a pair of runs. He also pitched a perfect ninth inning of Sunday’s win. It marks the fifth time this season the Illini have earned Big Ten honors. mix and hopefully give us that type of consistency, it would be huge for our season.”

Brigham Waginger and Richie Gordon, who would both go on to win Southern conference Defensive Player of the Year honors. Ford also played collegiate ball at Ohio from 1998-01. He led the team in 3-point shooting his final two seasons and helped the Bobcats pull off upsets against Syracuse and Arizona State. “Dustin has tremendous experience coaching forwards and posts, and Jamall excels at developing guards,” Groce said. “They are wellrounded in every aspect of coaching at this level, including recruiting, scouting and player development.”

FOOTBALL FROM PAGE 1B ership,” Beckman said before practice Monday night. “I mean, the kid works hard in everything he does, if it’s special teams, if it’s defense. Outstanding.”

Beckman yet to make decision at quarterback Beckman said before Monday’s practice that he hasn’t made a decision on how he plans to use his quarterbacks next season. “I can’t answer that right now,” Beckman said. “It’s all going to be dependent on what happens in the summer and throughout the fall.” Junior Nathan Scheelhaase and sophomore Reilly O’Toole are splitting first-team reps this spring, and third-string junior quarterback Miles Osei has seen action at running back with the first and second teams. Beckman ran a two-quarterback system at Toledo last season and could do the same with the Illini. “Nate’s done a great job, but I’ve seen Reilly do some good things and I’ve seen Miles do some good things,” he said. “All three of them are very capable of doing it. We’ll compete, and it’s just gonna make all three of them better.”

UI to see 1st glimpse of Beckman’s Illini at Orange and Blue game

The Illini are 13 practices into their 15-practice spring season, and fans will soon have their first look at Beckman’s Illini. The team will take the field for the annual Orange and Blue Scrimmage at 2 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium. “I’m fired up,” Beckman said. “I won’t be doing much. I’ll be standing in the back. I’m gonna let the coordinators coach, let them call the plays. Of course, I’ll be on the headset listening.”

CHONG JIANG THE DAILY ILLINI

Illinois’ Michael Buchanan (99) helps force a fumble by Western Michigan’s Tevin Drake (29). With Mercilus departing for the NFL, Buchanan is expected to step up as the Illini’s No. 1 defensive end. Beckman split the seniors into two teams — Orange and Blue — and they will hold a draft Tuesday to fill out the remainder of the rosters. Former Illini Jeff George, Mike Holmes and Brit Miller will serve as honorary coaches for the Blue team, and Doug Dieken, Dana Howard and Tim McCarthy will coach the Orange team.

Football alumni to return to campus for 1st-ever golf outing In addition to the six honorary spring game coaches, more than 200 former players and coaches will return to campus this weekend. Beckman will join them for a golf outing Friday.

“I think we’ve got over 20 different foursomes that will be involved in the first-ever golf outing that we’ve had,” he said. “So we’re getting these players back here on campus and showcasing those former alumni.” Beckman admitted he isn’t much of a golfer. “I’ll be cruising around, though,” he said laughing.

San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum delivers a pitch against the Arizona 6 7 Diamondbacks on opening day. Lincecum signed a $40 million deal for 2012-13. The Giants’ shorter, more lucrative contracts could potentially lead to financial trouble.

The San Francisco Giants' Matt Cain throws against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Cain recently signed an extension expiring in 2018, guaranteeing more than $20 million per year. The extension made Cain the league’s highest-paid right-handed pitcher.

In

recent years, the Tampa Bay Rays have been very successful, reaching the playoffs in three of the last four years and winning the American League Pennant in 2008 . The San Francisco Giants have not been as consistent yet were able to win the World Series in 2010. A huge part of the two teams’ success is undoubtedly a result of the performance of their superstars, most notably Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, Evan Longoria and David Price. Among them, the three pitchers and stud third baseman have 11 All-Star appearances. Lincecum already has two Cy Young Awards under his belt. The difference among the four: The Giants paid Lincecum and Cain a combined $20 million in 2011, while Price and Longoria earned a total of $3.25 million. The disparity will increase in 2012, as the former pair will earn $33 million and the latter duo will take in $6 million. Luckily for the Giants, the extra cash paid off with the world championship two seasons ago. How could four equally and incredibly talented players be compensated so differently? The answer is simple: The Rays’ front office management had the foresight and intelligence to secure long-term contracts for Longoria and Price at the start of their promising careers, while the Giants waited to pay their stars based on past performance and a hope for continued future performance. The Rays are in position to compete today and in the long term, while the Giants do not feel as secure. If there is one thing that has never made sense to me in the game of baseball, it’s when teams sign players who are in the end of or past their primes to massive contracts, hoping they can continue to perform at an elite level. If performance drops off, like in the cases of Alfonso Soriano and Barry Zito, the contracts can be fi nancially crippling for the organization. Just this past offseason, the Angels and Tigers entered into this type of marriage with Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder, respectively. While I think Pujols is the best player

long term also becomes much more expensive. At the culmination of the deals in Tampa Bay, the players might deserve significant raises, but they will also remember the loyalty shown to them by the organization. Even if some scouts in 2007 might have recognized that Longoria and Price would have been worth tens of millions of dollars a few years into their careers, they were still young, developing players. The Rays showed a great deal of faith in both by offering them fi nancial stability at a point in their lives when a major league career still seemed like a dream. Price returned the loyalty this year by negotiating a $4.35 million deal when he is probably worth millions more. In December, the Rays continued this course of action with their signing of highly touted pitching prospect Matt Moore to a five-year, $14 million deal with an additional three club options that take away his club control and arbitration years. With the club options included, the Rays could either lock up Moore for more years at a cheap price, or part ways with him if he fails to live up to his expectations. The Rays are in a low risk, high reward situation. If the Rays can negotiate a similar deal with reigning AL Rookie of the Year Jeremy Hellickson or talented outfielder Desmond Jennings, they could lock up an extremely promising young core of players at a significant bargain. The Giants have a fantastic opportunity to do exactly the same thing. Even with the expensive contracts of Lincecum and Cain, they have talented, young players Buster Posey, Madison Bumgarner and Brandon Belt. They are all still under club control, and deals similar to that of Matt Moore could be highly beneficial down the road for San Francisco. In an industry where money is the name of the game, the Rays are ahead of the curve. The market in Tampa is small and the team’s tiny payroll is a reflection of this situation. Thanks to some smart maneuvering in the front office, they are now able to compete with juggernauts like the Yankees and Red Sox season after season. And I expect them to be in the hunt for years to come.

of our generation, I also think that it is absurd to expect a consistent offensive output through the end of his contract in 2021 — when he will be approaching his 42nd birthday and earning $30 million annually. The MLB Collective Bargaining Agreement, or CBA, lays out a system to determine a player’s compensation if a long-term contract cannot be agreed upon. During the fi rst three years of a player’s MLB service, he is under club control and will be paid according to the rookie wage scale, which equates to somewhere around $500,000 every year. For the four subsequent seasons, the player is arbitration eligible, which means he can request a salary and have his case heard in front of a group of arbiters who will decide whether the player deserves his request pay or the pay the team is offering. Again, this will not occur if the player is under a long-term deal. In the cases of Longoria and Price, the Rays recognized the superstar potential of their prospects, and inked them to multi-year contracts very early in their careers. Price signed a six-year, $8.5 million deal in 2007 before pitching at Tropicana Field. He just signed a one-year deal for the 2012 season for just over $4 million. Longoria agreed to a six-year, $17.5 million deal in 2008 at the very beginning of his big league career, and the Rays hold very teamfriendly contract options for the 201416 seasons that would buy out all of his arbitration eligible years. When taking a look at San Francisco, the situation is much different, and it is fl irting dangerously with fi nancial issues. Lincecum signed a two-year deal prior to the 2010 season that cost the Giants $21 million, and just signed another two-year, $40 million deal that will take him through his arbitration years. Cain was under a contract similar to Price’s, but the Giants decided to renegotiate the deal to remove a club option year and guarantee another season of Cain in San Francisco. Instead of carrying out 2010 and 2011 under the initial deal, the Giants paid Cain another $750,000 and set the precedent for his recent deal with a $15 million figure in 2012. His latest extension, signed April 2, could reach over $20 million per year by the time it expires in 2018 . Because of the shorter, more lucrative deals in San Francisco, the
