Derby success inspires, empowers females

Twin City Derby Girls enter the fast lane in Champaign


The Twin City Derby Girls, or TCDG, Champaign-Urbana’s flat-track roller derby league, kicked off its 2012 season Saturday against Evansville’s Demolition City Roller Derby. Each roller derby game, also known as a bout, consists of two 30-minute periods and a halftime. Each period is made up of a series of two-minute jams. In each jam, five skaters from each team — one jammer and four blockers — take to the floor to compete. All 10 players then begin to skate around the circular track. A team scores when their jammer passes members of the opposing team. The role of the blockers is to prevent jammers from passing by using any official check. The TCDG traveling squad, known as the Twin City Travelers, plays against competing leagues at the David S. Palmer Arena in Danville. The local games, against three Champaign-Urbana teams — The Boneyard Bombshells, The ’Paign, and The Damagin’ Dames — are held at Skateland Savoy. In its first year, TCDG membership shot up from 7 to more than 80 members, making it one of the fastest-growing leagues in the country. “Being a grown woman, it’s hard to find a way to work out and be competitive. This is kind of the answer for a lot of women,” said Chelsea Norton, TCDG public relations and community outreach chair, also know by her skater name Chiquita Bandita. Part of the attraction to derby is that skaters frequently take on fictitious “derby names” – such as local skaters “Delta Badhand” and “Terror Misu.” Skaters also commonly don unusual attire like fishnet stockings and colorful knee socks. “In just two years, TCDG has exploded onto the C-U sports scene,” said TCDG president Tina Davis in a press release. “We are well on our way to becoming one of the most competitive leagues in the region.” Tina Davis, president of the league, also known as Terror Misu, said roller derby will be popular for a long time. “(For our own league,) the trick is finding a balance between being competitive nationally and locally,” Davis said. “We are cognizant that the league meets different needs for our members, and I think our success will be in providing the platforms for our league members to meet their own goals in the sport.” Norton said the league was founded on the belief that roller derby is not just about winning games. “By empowering and inspiring women and girls, we can

Calling all green-thumbed students

For Earth Day, Sustainable Student Farm hopes to get campus more involved in food production BY CLAIRE EVERETT STAFF WRITER

Southward on Lincoln Avenue, past the cows and through the gate with the clothespins that hang in the shape of a tomato, sits the Sustainable Student Farm. The farm, which was created in 2009, aims to create a more sustainable campus by producing locally grown food and supplying it to the University. As one of its newest projects, Zachary Grant, farm manager, is currently working with a graduate-level architecture

class to build a new high-tunnel greenhouse, which will protect crops from harsh weather conditions. The plants grown in the high tunnels, such as lettuce and carrots, will be distributed to dining halls, University catering and farmers markets, which will be held on Thursdays on the Quad. In celebration of Earth Day, which is Sunday, the farm will host a mini-high tunnel workshop Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the University Arboretum’s Idea Garden, where students will get the

opportunity to help build a small-scale high tunnel. “We’re trying to get students involved in any way possible,” Grant said. “Some of the money that we get to do this project actually comes from student fees anyway, so we’re trying to get students to take ownership regardless if they’re in crop science or not.” In addition to using the high tunnels, the farm rents three rooms at the Plant Sciences Laboratory greenhouses to ensure that the plants germinate before they are put in the ground. Once the ground has thawed, they are transported back to the farm during planting season. After driving back and forth between

greenhouses and the farm to water the plants, Grant said he would prefer if everything were in one spot, as there is not enough space in the research greenhouses. Back at the farm, Tim Smith, a University alumnus and two-year farm volunteer, said the farm exemplifies the positives of sustainable farming. “There’s some lower-tech ways of doing things out here that apply to how people subsist in less industrialized places,” Smith said. “Working at a place like this, you’re standing at the intersection of efficient and sustainable food production with economic forces.”

La Colectiva promotes access to education Students raise funds for undocumented immigrant scholarships BY ZACH BASS STAFF WRITER

La Colectiva, a student social justice organization that focuses primarily on immigration reform, held a fundraiser Wednesday regarding a scholarship that would be given to undocumented students on campus. The scholarship initiative is occurring while other legislation that seeks to aid undocumented students await approv-

al, including the DREAM Act, which would help undocumented students gain citizenship. The idea for the scholarship originally arose after a member of La Colectiva, Andrea Rosales, was arrested last year because she protested legislation that would prohibit school registration for undocumented individuals in Georgia. An online donation program began and quickly raised enough funds within two days to bail her out.

“After the online initiative worked, our focus shifted to an annual scholarship benefitting this group (undocumented students),” said Fernando Vazquez, president of La Colectiva and senior in LAS. “These students that we’re aiding came to the United States when they were very young. This is their home and they’re Americans in every sense in the way ... it’s beneficial

Vigil held for students killed in USC shooting

India to test long-range missile that could hit major Chinese cities BY RAVI NESSMAN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Summers Guo, freshman in Business, participates in a vigil dedicated to two international students who were killed last week at the University of Southern California. The memorial was held at the Asian American Cultural Center in Urbana on Wednesday. Last week, a gunman opened fire near the campus, killing two students in a robbery attempt.

Resin shortage could stall out car industry BY TOM KRISHER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT — The U.S. auto industry, already stretching to meet rising demand for cars and trucks, is facing shortages of parts and materials that could limit the number of new vehicles in showrooms later this year and crimp a historic turnaround. The most immediate problem — a shortage of a crucial plastic resin, caused by an explosion March 31 at a plant in Germany — could surface in a few weeks. And later this year or beyond, automakers could be confronted with an even bigger crisis,

LA COLECTIVA FROM PAGE 1A for this country to have them.” The event also featured story readings of stories written by people the scholarship would affect. “A lot of them just need help, and help isn’t available,” said Jose Sanchez, senior in LAS. “Being an undocumented student is almost an invisible marker for them and can be extremely hard in just attending here. There are stories of students calling the financial aid office trying to get help and actually being recommended to not attend the University at all.” Sanchez said similar to that of other states, Illinois illegal immigration laws can be strict and

running short of parts simply because there aren’t enough factories and people to make them. No one is entirely sure how many plants or models will be affected by either problem. Automakers say they are working to avoid shortages in both cases. But it may be tough to manage the intricate chain of companies that make most of the 3,000 parts that go into every car, from tiny valves and computer chips to heavy metal castings for transmissions. “A lot of them are under pressure because they reduced their staff and temporarily mothballed some of their factories,”

said Jim Gillette, an analyst with IHS Automotive. Automakers and suppliers are working together to try to avert plant shutdowns because of the resin shortage. They are trying to figure out how many fi nished parts are available, how much resin is in stock, how best to use it, and what could serve as a substitute, said Sharland, who led an industrywide meeting Tuesday to deal with the crisis. Crises like this aren’t new for the industry. The earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan last year knocked out parts plants and forced the industry to scramble for alternatives.

deportation is openly used. Yet it seems that Illinois could be taking a more open approach towards immigration as a result of recent discussion about the DREAM Act. Under the act, qualifications such as graduating high school and military service would grant undocumented immigrants citizenship. But because the act has yet to pass and more illegal immigrants are still arriving at the University, one concern regarding the scholarship has been the confidentiality of those who receive it. “This scholarship is going to be open for undocumented students but not just for undocumented students,” Vazquez said. “We won’t be asking for any Social Security numbers or other proof of citizenship, so hopefully that

will create a safe space for students to be willing to apply for the scholarship.” With the announcement of the initiative, members of La Colectiva feel that it could be a large step forward for undocumented students on campus. Even nonmembers of La Colectiva are helping out. “I stayed up until 2 a.m. just trying to help them with this event, and I’m not even a member,” said Gabriela Pedroza, senior in LAS. “This is very close to my family. Both my parents and siblings were undocumented. I was the only natural-born citizen. I know that this is a cause that could help people like them ... and people are going out of their way to bring attention to it.”


NEW DELHI — India is planning to test launch a new nuclearcapable missile that for the fi rst time would give it the capability of hitting the major Chinese cities of Beijing and Shanghai. The government has hailed the Agni-V missile, with a range of 5,000 kilometers, or 3,100 miles, as a major boost to its efforts to counter China’s regional dominance and become an Asian power in its own right. The test launch was slated to come as early as Wednesday evening, but Indian media said a delay was likely because of poor weather conditions. “It will be a quantum leap in India’s strategic capability,” said Ravi Gupta , spokesman for India’s Defense Research and Development Organization, which built the missile. China is far ahead of India in

FARMING FROM PAGE 1A However, Grant said he believes it is possible for the industrial-farm industry and small-scale farms to coexist. “There are 27 million acres of the best farmland in the entire world in Illinois,” he said. “What I’m lobbying for is a tenth of that, which is 20,000 to 40,000 student farms, which could cre-

In February, the league was accepted as a full member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, or WFTDA, after a comprehensive application process. The traveling squad will now compete for rankings within the WFTDA, an international association of more than 200 roller derby leagues. “It means we can now play

the missile race, with intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching anywhere in India. Currently, the longest-range Indian missile, the Agni-III, has a range of only 3,500 kilometers, or 2,100 miles, and falls short of many major Chinese cities. India and China fought a war in 1962 and continue to nurse a border dispute. India has also been suspicious of Beijing’s efforts to increase its influence in the Indian Ocean in recent years. “While China doesn’t really consider India any kind of a threat or any kind of a rival, India defi nitely doesn’t think in the same way,” said Rahul Bedi, a defense analyst in New Delhi. India already has the capability of hitting anywhere inside archrival Pakistan but has engaged in a splurge of defense spending in recent years to counter the perceived Chinese threat. The Indian navy took com-

mand of a Russian nuclear submarine earlier this year, and India is expected to take delivery of a retrofitted Soviet-built aircraft carrier soon. The new Agni, named for the Hindi word for fi re, is part of this military buildup and was designed to hit deep inside China, Bedi said. Government officials said the missile should not be seen as a threat. “We have a declared no-fi rstuse policy, and all our missile systems, they are not country specific. There is no threat to anybody,” Gupta said. “Our missile systems are purely for deterrence and to meet our security needs.” The launch window for the missile test, which is being conducted on Wheeler Island off India’s east coast, opened Wednesday evening and closes Friday, Gupta said.

ate a small-scale farm industry in the state, which would hardly impede on the ag-industrial farmland.” Danielle Schaffrath , senior in ACES, came to volunteer with two of her friends, whom are all planning on attending the Earth Day event Saturday as well. “I like the local interaction because you get to know your farmer and where your food comes,” she said. “You get to know the processes of growing

your food and all the hard work that goes into it.” Grant said any student is welcome to volunteer at the farm. “If you have an interest in learning about real food, whether it’s in the growing part of it or anything you want to bring to the table, we encourage people to come out and get experience,” Grant said. Interested students can visit the farm’s website at thefarm.

against other full WFTDA leagues to qualify for regional, and eventually, national tournaments,” said Cari Rich, vice-president of the league. “In baseball terms, we’ve graduated from the minors to the majors.” The league has also made a commitment to giving back to the community by teaming up with local non-profits. TCDG donates a portion of the money it raises from events to local charities. This year, the league partnered with Rape Advocacy, Counseling, and Education Services, or R.A.C.E.S, a group of rape crisis centers.

“The work they do is extremely important to our mission of empowering women and girls locally,” Rich said. “Proceeds from our home bouts will help them provide services in the community.” As the size of the league continues to grow in Champaign-Urbana, so does the support. Fans now come in support of their favorite teams and players — even asking for the occasional autograph. “From the hardcore athleticism and strategy of the game to the crazy ‘boutfits’ and derby names, there’s something for everyone at a derby bout,” Rich said.

for this minor, we’ll need to have covered very detailed questions,” Scheeline said. “When you have something, like this minor, that is going to be affecting students across colleges, you want to make sure there won’t be any departments that feel blindsided.” He said those discussions haven’t been brought to the table yet. And now with the new chair, the conversation regarding the

minor will not resume until fall 2012. Scheeline said he is okay with taking extra time to create the minor. “It’s later than I had wanted, but I think I’ve stressed this many times: we want it done right, not quickly,” Scheeline said. “Yes, we want to reach closure, but we want to do it carefully, making sure we don’t overlook anything.”

ur hearts go out to Alicia Smith. Smith was profiled in a front-page story in yesterday’s paper. We read about her struggles with a campus landlord, which ultimately led to her eviction. Could you imagine? She’s a college student here at the University, just like us, trying to get a degree and better her and her son’s lives. Although finding a place to live is admittedly an important decision, most students don’t spend much time on their


search. Often a group project or that pressing 9 a.m. exam takes more precedence. This carelessness is what leads to so many of the horror stories we hear about from our friends. However, reading Smith’s story should be a wake-up call to all of us; signing a lease is not something to be taken lightly. But we forget that we have the Tenant Union, funded by our student fees, to help us through this housing process. To not take advantage of all their services just isn’t smart.

HBO’s ‘Girls’ honestly depicts modern women MEGAN GRAHAM Opinions columnist



Wall shows students just want to lay blame I consider myself pro-Peace in the Middle East. I am pro-Israel, pro-Palestine and pro-Negotiations. Seeing the Israeli Apartheid Wall on campus put up by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), shows me that the group is not actually interested in the advancement of the peace process or advocating for the rights of Palestinians. They seem to be more interested in simply blaming Israel for any and every problem in Palestinian society rather than taking on initiatives that promote Palestinian welfare. I understand SJP’s hope for Palestinians to live normal lives. I myself hope this will be a reality in the near future. But so far this year, the agenda of this “proPalestinian” group has been a

simply anti-Israel one. Even if Israel pulled out all settlements from the West Bank tomorrow, the conflict would not be solved in the snap of the fingers. The conflict is rooted in a place much deeper than Israel’s right to protect its citizens. It lies in the fact that, for an autonomous Palestinian state to succeed, a strong and sustainable Palestinian civil society is needed. So what do we do? If we really want to work toward a peaceful solution, we must look at both narratives. We must support negotiations and discussion. Conflicts are not solved by pointing fingers. They are solved by supporting grassroots organizations, by negotiating and by looking at the bigger picture.

a rare moment of TV show unanimity — all of our other shows having at least one holdout, partially due to the fact that I refuse to watch vampire dramas — my three roommates and I eagerly clicked on HBO’s new series, “Girls,” on Sunday night. The unglamorous plot line, “Girl in the big city with the unpaid internship getting cut off by her parents so they can buy a lake house,” has had the media buzzing for months. And for good reason: We loved it. The show, which CNN pinned as “Awkward, but honest,” had a few off-kilter moments, like an out-of-nowhere opium trip and a sex scene so painfully awkward that I covered my eyes. But all in all, it struck some of the realities of being a Generation Y girl, which makes sense, because it’s written by a 25-year-old woman. The composite picture of us girls in the media these days, though it’s kind of funny there in the indie rock-soundtracked HBO glow of it all, is kind of sad and pathetic. Hannah, the main character in the show, exemplifies many of the parts of ladydom that aren’t particularly flattering. She and the quintessential girls on TV cling to boys that don’t like them back, depend on their parents for money, blow off their friends for loser dudes, can’t break up with said loser dudes because they’re afraid of being single, and can’t hold a conversation without the requisite “likes,” “ohmygod’s,” and “seriously’s.” Not all of us are really like that, even though that breed of girl overruns pop culture. This leaves me to wonder: Is the patheticness of “Girls” a comment on the intrinsic difficulty in being a young woman in this day and age, or is it condemning us for not transcending that difficulty? Emily Nussbaum’s NY Daily News piece put it best when she called the show “A bold defense (and a

searing critique) of the socalled Millennial Generation by a person still in her twenties.” On one hand, girls these days don’t have it easy. Political groups are waging war against female reproductive rights. There still isn’t any sign of wage equality. Sexism, in many ways, is still alive and well. Economically, the show is right on point. For girls (and boys), the workforce has never been more foreboding. In one scene, Hannah admits to her weasely on-again-off-again hookup that she’s been financially supported by her parents. He admits that he’s still in the same boat, “My grandma gives me $800 a month ... I supplement.” A recent Pew Research Center study reported that 49 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds say they’ve taken a job they didn’t want to pay the bills, and nearly a quarter have worked an unpaid job to get experience. The “getting fired from the unpaid internship” plot line may have been outright hilarity ten years ago, but for us Millenials, it was a reminder of a dismal reality.

The show also touches on the female friendship of a bygone era. The female friendship we’ve grown up with has been rife with cattiness and passiveaggressiveness; the kind where we gossip about each other then digitally gush over each other’s profile pictures. We’ve been subjected to the annoying frenemy TV relationships of Gen Y, but “Girls” represents the modern female friendship — the kind that is utterly fulfilling and unconditional. When was the last time you saw two twentysomething girls actually being nice to each other on TV? And on the other OPI-polished hand, the show is indeed a critique, pointing out the traits of the media’s “modern girl” — the needy, superficial, boyobsessed one — that we all hate but all act like every now and then. To that end, I think young women need to take “Girls” in stride and accept it as a challenge — to prove that we really are better than our gum-poppin,’ gold-digging, gossiping TV counterparts.

Fair sentencing should apply to unsentenced drug cases NISHAT KHAN Opinions columnist


There are some important differences though: One is more refined than the other, one you snort, one you smoke, one you can make with baking soda, and a little bit of one can get you in a lot more trouble than a little bit of the other. It used to be that 5 grams of crack would get you five years in jail, and 500 grams of cocaine would get you an equivalent sentence. It’s well known that this 1001 ratio has had an unfair effect on racial minorities, specifically the African American community, and as Justice Sonia Sotomayor stated Tuesday, “I’ve been a judge for nearly 20 years, and I don’t know that there’s one law that has created more controversy or more discussion about its racial impact than this one.”

Barcelona, people sell cans of coke on the street. It seems innocent enough until you realize, it ain’t cola, my friends. Yes, apparently cocaine is so prevalent in this infamously “independent” Spanish region that if you breathe you get a whiff of the “crunch and munch” (really trying to make use of the new street terms I learned). We may not have the same problem here in the states, but we do have our own age-old issues with crack and cocaine.

This old law was remedied on Aug. 3, 2010, when President Barack Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act, reducing the overall punishments for crack offenses, effectively making the ratio 18-1 (28 grams of crack to 5 years in prison). Now that the new law has been enacted, what’s at issue is whether it applies to crimes committed before Aug. 3, 2010. Traditionally, laws do not apply retroactively unless Congress specifies that they should. In this case, Congress didn’t specify anything. So now we’re left with a number of people who committed crack or cocaine offenses before August 2010, but weren’t sentenced until after the Fair Sentencing Act went into effect. The Supreme Court justices

seem convinced that if Congress wanted to have the law apply retroactively, they would have said so. Well, the thing is, they sort of have. They may not have stated explicitly that in the law, but two congressional members, including our own Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, submitted a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, which said the goal of the act was to make federal cocaine sentencing fair as soon as possible. “The Fair Sentencing Act’s reduced crack penalties should apply to defendants whose conduct predates enactment of the legislation but who have not yet been sentenced,” said Durbin in the letter. ”Otherwise, defendants will continue to be sen-

tenced under a law that Congress has determined is unfair for the next five years ... This absurd result is obviously inconsistent with the purpose of the Fair Sentencing Act.” Aside from the letter, it should be clear that the point of the new law was to remedy a racial disparity, and it doesn’t really make sense for this disparity to be preserved for those who were unfortunate enough to commit crimes before the law went into effect. Suddenly if you sold crack on Aug. 2nd, 2010 you’re so much luckier than someone who sold crack on Aug. 4th, 2010. Something about that just doesn’t seem right. Take for example, the case of Corey Hill who wasn’t convicted until 2009 after he sold 53 grams

of crack to a government informant in 2007. In December 2010, just 3 months after the Fair Sentencing Act was enacted, a Chicago judge sentenced him to 10 years in prison. If the new law had applied, Hill would have only gone to jail for four years, said The Los Angeles Times. More than just that, how can we ask judges to award a sentence based on a law that Congress has already deemed as unfair? Most importantly, we’re creating a huge divide between defendants who committed the exact same crimes but at different times. That wasn’t the intention of the law, and the Supreme Court should recognize that.

Heading home: Students weigh in on bus choices MELISSA ESPAÑA Staff writer


e’ve all been there. Your parents are expecting you home for the weekend, it’s already Thursday afternoon, and you’ve yet to purchase your ticket back to your hometown. Of all the different bus services on campus, which one do you choose? I surveyed a handful of students to fi nd out.

Suburban Express Price range: $19.95-$29.95 for a one-way ticket Prices tend to be higher as you buy your ticket closer to the day you are leaving, and are more expensive on the weekends.

main buses. Therefore, some buses don’t have Wi-Fi, making it an inconvenience for students who planned to get work done, or just wanted to listen to music online during their trip.

Inappropriate Advertising

“SEXpress,” “Get some,” and “We’re not LEX,” are only a few of the advertisements Suburban Express puts out on their bright yellow flyers. “They have a very negative advertising campaign,” said Hollis Johanson, a freshman in LAS. “I don’t think any of that is really necessary to get kids to choose (Suburban Express).”

Lincolnland Express (LEX) Price range: Using coupons and promo codes can cut down the price, but tickets can range anywhere from $10 to $30.



Pros: Reliable and convenient service

Some students choose Suburban Express because of how close it drops them off to home, or for the fact that if you live in PAR/FAR or ISR, the bus picks you up right in front. Some bus services have been known to arrive at their destination far beyond the expected arrival time, or to arrive at the pick-up location at least 15 minutes early. Suburban Express keeps it pretty consistent. “(It’s) the most popular,” said Michelle Kelley, sophomore in LAS. “There is a reason behind it. It’s convenient and has a lot of available times. It’s my bus of choice.”

Cons: Expensive

Although students have spoken highly of the Suburban Express’s great service, they have also commented on the high prices. Suburban Express has a higher price range and rarely offers tickets far in advance, so an average one-way trip to Chicago or the Chicagoland areas range from about $20 to $30. Marco Velarde, freshman in Engineering, said he doesn’t like the high ticket price, not just because there were cheaper options, but because not all of the promised services, such as Wi-Fi, were included.

Does not always have all the amenities promised

Sometimes bus services are so busy, especially on holiday weekends, that they don’t drive their

CRACKED FROM PAGE 6A Mandell said. “Right now, we’ve purchased our truck, we’ve trademarked our name and we’re incorporated. We’ve also put a deposit down for the fitting of the truck so we’re getting aluminum ceilings, diamond plated floors, an air conditioner unit, a sliding door, window and WiFi.” With their business plan down and a truck on its way, it’s only a matter of time before the business will be up and running on campus. Cracked plans on opening the week before classes, August 15 precisely, in order to get their name heard around campus before school starts. Students will be able to find the Cracked truck on the North Engineering

“I spent an hour on the side of I-57 because our bus driver didn’t know how to work our bus, and had to flag down a Suburban Express bus driver to show him how to fix the problem,” Thomas said. “I will never ride (with) them again.” Students have also experienced their LEX bus arriving late on multiple occasions, either to pick them up or to their expected destination. “According to my roommate, the one time she took LEX, it came an hour and a half late,” said Joe Martinez, sophomore in Engineering. Although many of the accusations made about LEX haven’t exactly been proven, some students will refuse to use a service simply because of their friends’ reviews.

Lenient on the no-ticket rule

Whether it’s a random student from your chemistry class, one of your travel buddies, or even you, chances are that almost everyone has witnessed the ticket collector deny someone access to the bus because they left their ticket at home or forgot to print it out. “I had just printed my ticket for Suburban (Express) 20 minutes prior to departure and somehow along the way to the bus pick up site, I lost the ticket and I wasn’t allowed on the bus.” said Genesis Galva, freshman in DGS. “I was extremely upset because it was five minutes until departure and there was no way that I was going to have time to print the ticket out again.” Because sometimes students honestly forget their ticket on their desk or it slipped out of their bag when they were reaching for their sweater, it’s good to have a bus service that is lenient on the rule.

Price Range: Tickets can be as cheap as $2 if bought months in advance and if purchased online the day before, can be about $15 one-way to Chicago.

Pros: Cheap and has more options

With some planning, students can purchase Greyhound Express tickets for as low as $2. All it takes is buying your tickets far in advance and purchasing them online. “I think it is very reasonably priced,” said Angela Jose, freshman in ACES. “It is not unsafe in my opinion. The only inconvenience is that I have to take a bus from the Illinois Terminal.” Another reason students opt for the Greyhound is because the Greyhound offers many time options, from early hours of the morning to late at night. “(Greyhound is) easily accessible. Plus, they are highly convenient and pose great service all around,” Velarde said.

Rumors about not being safe or reliable

In April of last year, a vehicle sideswiped a LEX on Interstate 57. Rumors about thefts on LEX buses have also been talked about. “LEX is simply a bus service that is just shady and unreliable,” Velarde said. “I’ve heard too many stories regarding the malfunctions of this bus service.” After a bad experience with LEX, Warren Thomas, freshman in Media, never wants to use the service again.

Quad and on Green Street. “Right now, the plan is to be at a certain spot from 8 to 3 and then be in a different spot from 10 at night to 3 in the morning,” Krause said. “Then hopefully in a year or so, we could get a truck that’s doing more of a route and going to different places every time.” Mandell and Krause are also looking into making food stops at various Champaign businesses and at the Illinois football games this upcoming fall. Plus, there’s also been talk about trying to reach out and cater for fraternity and sorority philanthropy events. If the business does do well, expansion will definitely be something that Mandell and Krause will look into. They explained that their expansion role model is Chipotle. “In terms of expanding, we

would like to be at every Big Ten campus,” Mandell said. However, even if Cracked doesn’t end up being all it’s “cracked” up to be, both Mandell and Krause aren’t worried about what the future will hold for them. “This is a make or break. If it works out, that’s great and it’s what we were aiming for and planning on,” Mandell said. “And if it doesn’t, we’re still going to be 22 and have a place to sleep.” Despite the obstacles they’ve already had and will continue to face, both believe that they can make the company work if they set their minds to it. “There’s going to be a million things where you want to say this isn’t worth it but in all honesty, there’s always a solution,” Mandell said. “If you want to make it work, you can.”

Unsafe or “shady”

Because the Greyhound doesn’t pick up students directly in front of their dorm and is located at the Illinois Terminal, and because the drop-off locations in Chicago are sometimes known to be unsafe, some students avoid using the Greyhound service. “I don’t feel unsafe just because I know the bus driver will help out, but there are always some ‘shady’ people,” said Melody Cruz, sophomore in LAS.

Jennifer Alter, captain of the University of Illinois Triathlon team, is coordinating the transportation of the team to nationals, which will take place in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Fighting Illini Triathlon team heads to nationals HALEY JONES


be a member of the Fighting Illini Triathlon team, you have to have guts. It is practically required to be able to complete the feats of athleticism they do in a race. This weekend the triathlon team is heading to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to compete in nationals and has high hopes to do well. “We have a very big team compared to a lot of schools. It’s harder for us because of the weather. We can’t train outside all winter like some other schools,” said Brian O’Neill, president of the triathlon team. Sophomore Jennifer Alter, captain of the team, is coordinating the travel

to nationals. “We are cramming into two 14-people vans, and we are bringing a truck that has a trailer that has all of our bikes mounted on and heading down to Alabama,” she said. Members of the team put in enough work to really shine at nationals. Coordinators for running, biking and swimming lead different workouts at their daily meetings, which aren’t mandatory. The schedule is flexible, so members try to come whenever they can make it, and some even practice twice a day if they are very serious. “We don’t have a coach, so no one holds it to you to attend practices. We will make fun of people and harass them, jokingly of course,” Alter said. There are many different types of triathlons, such as sprint, super sprint,

Olympic, half Ironman and Ironman. Every type of triathlon begins with swimming, then biking, and running finishes up the race. “We train all year for triathlons, but there are different levels like the Ironman, which is a 2.4-mile swim, 112mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run. That takes about a year to train for. Then there are sprint triathlons, which take a month or two to train for,” O’Neill said. At nationals, the team will be competing in an Olympic triathlon. The club also holds their own triathlon at the University called the Trithe-Illini, which usually takes place in October. For those who are new to the sport, the Fighting Illini Triathlon team is open to all different skill levels. “We have a lot of people on the team

that haven’t done triathlons before and are going to be doing their first one. These people begin working on basic swimming skills and they come to easy, social Friday runs,” said Bryan Conger, member of the club and sophomore in LAS. “On the other end of the spectrum, we have some people who are really competitive that are going down to Nationals.” O’Neill said that the biggest misconception about triathlons is that they are impossible to do, which they truly are not. “It sounds a lot harder than it actually is,” he said. “When people hear triathlon, they think of the Ironman, like the really hard ones, but there are really short ones which can be just a few miles for every discipline and are very easy to do.”

Get crackin’: Seniors aim to feed campus with food-truck business BY TAYLOR ELLIS STAFF WRITER

There’s nothing worse than the morning rush to class when you wake up late. Between grabbing books and rushing out the door, it’s easy to forget picking up something for breakfast on the way out. Thankfully, Jeremy Mandell and Daniel Krause have come up with a solution to this problem with their food truck business, Cracked. Mandell and Krause, both seniors in ACES, are friends from high school and have recently decided to become business part-

ners. With Mandell handling the business aspect and Krause with the restaurant experience, they will open the truck for business this August. Krause came up with the concept of Cracked during a summer internship with Lettuce Entertain You, and after mentioning the idea to Mandell, they decided to take it to the next level. “In the past six or seven months, I’ve been racking my brain as to how to turn this idea into something more feasible that I could do after school,” Krause said. “So instead of creating a restaurant,

that I don’t have a half million dollars for, I decided that I wanted to do a food truck because it was something that was in my means, something that I could do now.” Food trucks, which have become popular in cities such as Portland, are fortunately legal in Champaign. Because of a threat to restaurants, there are currently laws preventing the spread of food trucks in Chicago. However, on a college campus, there’s a demand for what food trucks can provide — quick, tasty and cheap food. “We want to provide people with something they enjoy and some-

thing that’s heartfelt,” Krause said. “We don’t want people to feel like they got ripped off after buying it.” For Mandell and Krause, the main goal of the business is to keep customers as happy as possible. To do this, tax will be included in the price of each item and credit cards are an acceptable form of payment without having a minimum. “I don’t want people to feel like we’re taking advantage of them and I don’t want students to think we’re trying to draw every cent that they have for a cup of coffee,”

Krause said. “I want people to feel like they’re at home, like they’re in their own kitchen.” In terms of a menu, Mandell and Krause wanted to revolve it around breakfast sandwiches that can be acceptably eaten at any time of day. Also, they wanted to keep the menu pretty simple in order to reduce both food cost and food waste. Each sandwich will consist of a baguette, fried egg, a type of meat such as bacon, chorizo, pastrami, or salami, and some type of spread. The breakfast sandwiches will also come with a side such as tater

When it comes to support for their new business, Mandell and Krause both have their parents standing behind them — which may come as a surprise to some.

Pitching leads Illini to 5-2 win over Panthers Back-to-back victories boost bullpen morale BY JAMAL COLLIER STAFF WRITER

Illinois starting pitcher Josh Ferry knows maintaining confidence is most important for him on the mound. Confidence is something Illinois head coach Dan Harlteb said nearly every young pitcher struggles with; even though Ferry has the pitches in his arsenal to compete, he’d pitched himself into trouble this year. He came into the game with an ERA north of seven, with more walks (15) than strikeouts (14). When Ferry took the mound Wednesday against Eastern Illinois, he knew his most important pitch was strike one. He stayed ahead of Panthers hitters all night long, leading Illinois to a 5-2 victory over Eastern Illinois. Ferry threw 70 pitches over seven innings, striking out six (both career-highs) improving his personal record to 3-1 while only allowing two hits and walking none. He had 41 pitches in his last outing against Indiana, which lasted just two innings. “He’s very competitive, so it really bothers him when he does not perform well,” Hartleb said. “He works extremely hard and it’s not easy to go out and perform as a freshman. There is a maturing process and this is big step in that process.” Illinois was up 5-0 when Ferry came out of the game, but Hartleb made the decision to pull him in hopes of having an extra arm in the bullpen for the weekend. But Ferry kept the Panthers off balance all game, retiring the last 11 hitters he saw — he didn’t allow a hit after the second inning. A long outing from a starting pitcher was exactly what the Illini bullpen needed after Tuesday night’s starter Reid Roper lasted just 1 1/3 innings. Ferry primarily used his fastball to send hitters into a 0-1 hole right off the bat. From then on, freshman catcher Kelly Norris-Jones said he

Distance from home doesn’t affect Thomas Pieters’ golf game BY JOHNATHAN HETTINGER STAFF WRITER

4,252 miles — that’s the distance between Nijlen, Belgium, and Champaign. That’s the distance that sophomore Thomas Pieters moved to play golf at Illinois. Traveling one-sixth of the way around the world wasn’t the only obstacle for Pieters. He also had to adapt to a new culture, new food and a new language. “When he first got here, he didn’t understand a lot of everyday language,” junior Mason Jacobs said of Pieters. “But now he understands it and uses it and talks just like all of us. “We helped him adapt and tried to make it feel like a family,” Jacobs added. It took Pieters’ golf game little time to adapt. He shot an even-par in his first collegiate golf round, and placed second in this third collegiate tournament. In October, Pieters won his first career tournament, the Jack Nicklaus Invitational. Pieters beat current No. 1 and No. 2 golfers in the nation — Dylan Fritelli and Jordan Spieth, both of Texas — for the title. But Pieters hasn’t only added to the team through his low rounds. “He’s played a lot of big tournaments overseas,” Jacobs said. “It helps that he has a variety of experiences and that he shares them with the team.” Those experiences are becoming more common in the college golf world. An increasing number of international student-athletes are playing collegiate golf in the United States. There were seven international golfers

representing three countries in the Big Ten when Illinois head coach Mike Small took over the program in 2000. Twelve seasons later, the conference currently has 20 international golfers representing 17 countries. Small said that the trend of recruiting international students started to pick up 10 or so years ago. Small has only recruited three international players during his tenure at Illinois: Pieters and Canadians Matt Hoffman and James Lepp. Hoffman played at Illinois from 2006–10, while Lepp played for two seasons before transferring to Washington and winning the individual NCAA championship in 2005. Pieters was Small’s first overseas recruit. “I didn’t recruit an international player for a while,” Small said. “I wanted to be sure who I was getting.

In November, Thomas Detry signed a National Letter of Intent to play at Illinois. The Nijlen, Belgium, native goes to the same high school, Sportschool Hasselt, that Pieters went to. Detry was the 2011 Belgium National Match Play Champion. The 4,252 miles between his home and campus presented recruiting challenges. Pieters said that he and college coaches would email and talk on the phone, but Small went the extra mile. “He made me feel at home,” Pieters

Osei brings versatility to UI football’s offense BY CHAD THORNBURG STAFF WRITER

Throughout the spring, head football coach Tim Beckman has said depth is the biggest concern for the Illinois football team. The issue was even more apparent with the team split up during the annual Orange and Blue Spring Game. “If you’re gonna be successful, you’ve got to have depth,” Beckman said. “You’ve got to have people that can step in if somebody gets injured.” While the Illini are shallow at several positions, quarterback Miles Osei has proved to be a remedy for at least a few of them. In addition to quarterback, the junior has lined up at wide receiver and running back as well as returned kicks and punts this spring. “It’s huge for us,” Beckman said of Osei’s versatility. “Those are the things that we’re gonna have to do. We’re gonna put our players in the best positions where they can be successful. That’s the name of the game of football. I think Miles has taken that as a challenge.” Osei, who played mostly quarterback

PIETERS FROM PAGE 1B said. “He made a lot of effort to make me comfortable. Coach would actually come and see me play whenever I was (in the U.S.).” Unlike some coaches, Small has not yet travelled overseas to visit with recruits, but plans to do so in the future. “The players come over here and play in tournaments and I go watch them,” Small said. “I use the Internet to research the players and emails to communicate (with them), and I also have contacts and friends who help make me aware of these international players.” Illinois is not the only program to benefit from international recruits. “A lot of the mid-majors and schools that couldn’t compete are playing better than they were five to 10 years ago,” Small said. “Kids follow rankings, so they

GYMNASTICS FROM PAGE 1B said. “If anything, this humbles us and pushes us to do better.” Illinois won its fourthstraight Big Ten title on April 6, but the happiness was short lived. The gymnasts wanted more. “Our goal has been to win the NCAA title from the beginning of the season,” sophomore Jordan Valdez said. The Illini’s main focus the last two weeks of practice has been to perfect every detail, so that they can hit 26-for-26 routines. Spring said he is confident the Illini will walk out with a fi rst-place fi nish if they do just that.

during his fi rst two years, said he’s willing to step up at any position. “If quarterback is where they need me, that’s where I’ll play,” Osei said. “If it’s running back, that’s where I’ll play. If it’s wide receiver, that’s where I’ll play. ... I defi nitely feel comfortable. I feel comfortable on the field, just going out there running plays, getting the ball in my hand, just having fun out there.” Osei has seen limited action in his previous two seasons at Illinois and sophomore quarterback Reilly O’Toole said Osei is motivated to get on the field, regardless of the position. “He just wants to play; he’ll do whatever it takes,” O’Toole said. “He’s been doing really well at running back and at quarterback. I’m sure if they told him to go somewhere else, he would do a great job. Right now, he’s just doing whatever coach is telling him and he’s doing a really good job at it.” Junior quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase said Osei is one of his closest friends on the team, and having him on the field is a welcome addition to the offense. “It’s kind of like having two eyes back there,” Scheelhaase said. “He’s back there looking at a different part of the field than I am. ‘Hey, watch the corner fi re,’ thinking corner blitz because he’s looking and the safety is off the hash,

know the names, but they don’t know the schools,” he added. Two-time defending NCAA champions Augusta State has benefited from the help of international players. The program had two international golfers in its five-man lineup in 2010, and three international golfers in 2011. “International recruits don’t know the difference between an Augusta State and an Illinois or an Augusta State and a Texas,” Small said, referring to the top-ranked team in the nation. International student-athletes have not only helped teams like Augusta State win national championships; they have also had success in the individual national championships as well. Every individual national champion from 1897 to 1997 was a native of the U.S. Since 1998, however, there have been five international NCAA champions, including the No. 1 golfer in the world, Luke Donald. He said this team is different than anybody he’s seen before, including the Illini team his senior season, who narrowly took second place six years ago at the same venue. He said the Illini want it more than anybody else and the captains have been focused on ensuring no gymnast’s mentality falter. “When I look at my teammates, I know they have that fi re burning in their eyes the same way that I do,” Maestas said. It will be a tough battle for the Illini, as they will see if they can live up to the high expectations. “At this point, we are just itching to get to Norman,” Valdez said. “We are ready to go and prove ourselves.”


Illinois’ Miles Osei (16) carries the ball during the game against South Dakota State at Memorial Stadium. During the Sept. 10 game, Osei played quarterback and continued with that in his first two years, but he said he’s willing to step up at any position. and it’s nice to have somebody back there to help you out.” Osei displayed his versatility during the Saturday’s spring game, lining up at running back and wide receiver as

WEINSTEIN FROM PAGE 1B it.” The Illini ended the NCAA regional competition on the fl oor. Weinstein’s performance followed Kelsey Joannides’, Wei nstei n’s mentor, who suffered a fall to earn her second-lowest score this season (9.625). Before performing, Weinstein had no idea that a solid score would lead her to an all-around title and a trip to nationals. “I wasn’t focused on that at all,” she said. “I was really just trying to do the best I could for my team so that we could have high scores in our lineups and so we could go to nationals as a team. I really had no idea that I did anything for myself at all. That’s the honest truth.” Scoring a 9.875 on the fl oor placed Weinstein on top of the all-around podium. She also was placed in a four-way tie for fourth place on the event with Illinois sophomore Amber See , Oklahoma’s Sara Stone and Stanford’s Pauline Hanset. The scores on all four events totaled Weinstein’s career-high mark of 39.450 in the all-around competition. “I was overwhelmed because I had made my team so happy

ing strikes. “In the past he’s just kind of been a little wild. When he trusts his stuff and he has great stuff and can get anyone out with any pitch.” Illinois’ pitching staff dominated Eastern Illinois in the twogame season series sweep, allowing five runs in the two games combined. The Panthers have

struggled to plate runs this season, and came into Wednesday’s game hitting .249 and averaging 4.9 runs a game. The Illini have now won backto-back games following their four-game losing streak, both of which came during the week. Midweek games had been a problem for the Illini in the past, mainly because of pitching depth. Hart-

leb is hoping these wins can produce another solid starter for the Illini, who have struggled behind starters Kevin Johnson and John Kravetz. “Our guys came out with some fire this week,” Hartleb said. “We made some adjustments and we were better in a lot of areas, so it’s good just getting back on our winning ways.”

and I had accomplished that and that I had done something right,” Weinstein said. “It was obviously an honorable feeling to represent my team and my school in the best way that I could, but it was really bittersweet because my goal and my dream was to go with my team. “I think that I am very inspired because I know what it takes to be able to get us there, so I really can’t wait to come back from nationals and start working for next year so we can all be there together.” The fl oor exercise is not only an expression of the gymnast’s character but can incorporate the crowd into the routines. The chants and cheers from the Illinois gymnasts motivate Weinstein during her routine. “To know that they are watching me and to know that they are cheering for me, that’s probably the best feeling ever,” Weinstein said. “I think I attribute my best memories to doing a good routine and then just screaming, clapping and running back and watching my teammates be proud of me.” The environment will be different for Weinstein when she performs her floor routine at nationals without her teammates on the sidelines. Illinois head coach Kim Landrus is confident

that her performance will not change, even with the absence. “It’s the same gymnastics .... She’s a competitor, and it’s such an honor for her to be able to go and represent the University of Illinois at NCAA nationals,” Landrus said. “I’m confident that she will go in there and do her gymnastics the way she always does and she’ll do a great job.” At the NCAA Championships last year, Weinstein competed in the all-around competition. She posted a 9.850 on the floor exercise, tying her for eighth place and earning her secondteam All-American honors. Landrus believes Weinstein’s previous success will help her compete at nationals alone this year. “She was there last year, so she knows what to expect,” Landrus said. “She is very familiar with the gymnastics of the other teams across the country that will be represented. I think just knowing what she’s walking into will defi nitely help her.” Weinstein’s career- and season-high on the floor exercise matches her beam career- and season-high scores at 9.9. As she does with the vault, Weinstein sees her strengths developing from her power rather than precision. The height she gets while performing

difficult tumbling passes allows her to earn higher scores. “I think that my height on my tumbling skills is defi nitely appreciated also,” the 5-foot2 junior said. “So when you come down to looking at similar routines that did similarly, how are you going to distinguish them? I think that the height, maybe, is something that could work in my advantage.” This season, Weinstein earned her fi rst-ever floor title against Arizona State, which is also where she set her new career-high score. Aside from all the accolades Weinstein has earned, she will always strive to improve her routines. “I think that’s the challenge with gymnastics. There is always something that can be improved, there is always something that you can work on and it’s never perfect” she said. “I think that that’s a feeling that I’m always searching for. I’m always looking for a way to make it perfect. It’s so precise that you can put your hand placement in one way and then you can throw yourself totally off. “In a way, it is kind of like the back of my hand, just because I have been doing this for so long, but I think there are always little things that I can make better.”

The Daily Illini |

Thursday, April 19, 2012


More online: Check out a video of these

athletes answering these questions and more on

Editor’s note: Every Thursday, the Daily Illini sports department will ask four Illinois student-athletes questions pertaining to life off the field. Compiled by Johnathan Hettinger

Macy Hyatt, junior, women’s gymnastics

Do you have any pregame rituals?

What is something you’re bad at?

Can you do any fake accents?

I do my teammate Elise’s (Gills) hair every meet, so that’s been working so far.

I’m really bad at being serious in situations where I’m actually supposed to be.

I can try British sometimes.

» were » What » you» » What » » » was known for in high school?

the last book you read?

Being a team leader

“The Help”

» » » » »

» »

No, I don’t.

Basketball. I don’t even know how to play basketball.

Well, I can do a Southern accent.

Tennis. It’s the only thing I’ve ever been known for.

“The Hunger Games.” It was really good. I still want to read the second one, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

Maureen Liddy, senior, women’s golf

I have to wear a bow in my hair. That’s about it.

Parking and driving


My laugh

“The Hunger Games”

Breeana Coleman,

I say a prayer before I run. I warm up and stretch and make sure I get some good sprints, but that’s pretty much it.

I can’t think of anything.

I don’t know.

I was known for being fast. I was the fastest person in my school.

The last book I read was for one of my classes. I don’t really have time to read.

Allison Falkin, sophomore, women’s tennis

sophomore, women’s track and field

thing from that guy last year in the same series,” Chicago’s Patrick Sharp said. “You know it’s coming. You try to warn your linemates and be aware when he’s on the ice. He’s got a history of targeting guys’ heads and having questionable hits. It makes it that much more frustrating to see it happen, but we got to rally behind Hoss.” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville reiterated that the hit on Hossa was “brutal.” He said there was little change in Hossa’s condition without being specific, but said he was definitely out for Thursday’s game. Asked if Hossa’s injury was long-term, Quenneville said: “We’ll see.” Hossa went to a hospital for tests Tuesday night before he was taken home. A team doctor said a full recovery is expected but there is no timetable.

CHICAGO — The NHL suspended Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres indefinitely on Wednesday for knocking Chicago’s Marian Hossa out of the game — and maybe the playoffs — with a shoulder blow to the head. Hossa won’t play in Game 4 on Thursday with the Coyotes leading the series 2-1. He was at home resting, exchanging texts with his Blackhawks teammates less than 24 hours after he was carried off the ice on a stretcher and taken to a hospital. The hard knock by Torres was the latest in a first round that has been dominated by brawls and violent hits. The NHL scheduled a Friday hearing in New York for a player who has a reputation for big — and some say dirty — hits.

Depending on the locker room, the severity of the blow — one year after Torres did the same thing to Chicago’s Brent Seabrook while playing for Vancouver — differed and took the spotlight from a competitive first-round matchup that has seen all three games go to overtime. “I don’t think there was any malicious intent on Raffi’s part,” he added. “He’s a hard hitter. That’s the way he plays the game. He turned, coming full speed, caught a guy right in the chest. Unfortunately, the player was injured.” Torres’ skates were off the ice as he hit Hossa and sent Chicago’s regular-season points leader crashing to the ice in the first period. Hossa had just passed the puck when he was hit. “There’s only been one dirty hit in our series and you saw the same
