POWs, troops missing in action honored at vigil BY PULU WANG STAFF WRITER
Community members and students gathered on the Quad on Friday for a POW/MIA ceremony honoring prisoners of war and those missing in action. The 24-hour vigil coincided with National POW/MIA Recognition Day, which occurs on the third Friday of September. “It kind of feels good to be part of it because it could be us one day,” said Jason Kim, junior in Business, who comes from a military family. “We are training right now, and
once we get commission, we can go out there and sacrifice for our country. And it’s good to show that they are not forgotten and (to) give them respect.” Kim said he appreciated the opportunity to express that respect. Candles were lit at the event to symbolize remembrance, and participants wrote their personal thoughts on a message board and read stories of victims who were killed in war. Every year, Navy, Army, Marine and Air Force cadets and midshipmen march and carry drill rifles in
Community members discussed alternatives to incarceration at a meeting led by Champaign-Urbana Citizens for Peace and Justice on Friday. The group began a campaign for alternatives after a Champaign County Board proposal was made earlier this year to spend $20 million on a new jail . Panel members at the event included the Rev. Zernial Bogin, president of the Champaign County Black Chamber of Commerce; Diane Zell, president of the National Alliance for Mental Illness of Champaign County; Gilberto Rosas, member of the C-U Immigration Forum; Diana Lenik, steering committee member of the Champaign County American Civil Liberties Union; and James Kilgore, member of Citizens With Convictions. All speakers explored several alternatives to jail, including education for young people, mental health and substance abuse treatment, and resources

for those returning from incarceration. Aaron Ammons, co-founder of CUCPJ, he had suffered from the criminal justice system. Ammons said his life was difficult after being released from the county jail. “I was an ex-drug dealer, ex-drug user. ... There are certain jobs that are denied to you. ... It was frustrating,” he said. Ammons said he thinks the county should spend money not on increasing jail space but on helping formerly incarcerated individuals. He said that without the support of job training or other educational programs, ex-prisoners will likely continue committing crimes. Brian Dolinar, member of CUCPJ, said that because of discrimination, many more African-Americans are jailed for minor crimes than people of other races. “They don’t need to sit in jail,” Dolinar said. “I mean, how often do you see people

VIGIL FROM PAGE 1A body else and to let everyone in the University and the public know that we still have these people ... (and) we don’t know where they are,” she said. “They haven’t been returned to their families in maybe 30 years, and their families are still looking for them and if they died or live.” Kealy said she was satisfied
with the event. She said many students came to the display to ask about it and discuss the military in general. She also said many people see the whole picture of the military as a big organization, but only to a lesser extent do they see each specifi c individual involved in it. Trisdon Miller, member of the Arnold Air Society and junior in LAS, said this is a great opportunity to recognize the sacrifices made by all of those who
have died in war. “We have candles that we light in remembrance of them; there is a name associated with each of those,” he said. “Even though we don’t know where they are, we don’t know if they are alive anymore, we can say that this light is symbolic. We are not going to forget them because they sacrificed so much for us.”

Gilberto Rosas, professor of anthropology and Latina and Latino studies, speaks on the Alternatives to Incarceration panel during the town hall public forum held at the Urbana City Building on Friday.
INCARCERATION FROM PAGE 1A jaywalk on campus? And how often do you see people (on campus getting) arrested? Never. Never. But this happens routinely in some neighborhoods.” One alternative to creating more jail facilities discussed at the forum was improving youth education. Bogin said children can learn to be creative and explore their intelligence through such programs, and if the county can spend millions of dollars on a new jail, it has the resources to educate children. “We have to stop this,” he said. “We have to break this vicious cycle. We have to realize these kids are not just our young. These kids are the ones who are going to be the rulers ... of our future.” Many people are jailed
because of mental health issues and substance abuse, Zell said. She said by making mental health treatment more available, many people would be prevented from committing crimes. “If they can’t get mental health treatment because they can’t afford it, they continue to get worse until they do commit some sort of offense, and they end up in jail,” Zell said. She also said the county should spend money on providing mental health care to current inmates because they cannot afford the treatment. Champaign County resident Scott Kimball , whose brother is in jail on drug abuse charges, attended the forum. He said jail is not effective in treating drug addictions. “Incarcerating drug addicts does not make our community safer,” he said. “What helps
their addiction is community (and) community programs — not punishment in jail.” Panelists also discussed the negative stigmas about people returning from prisons. Kilgore also said society should remove the bans set up for ex-convicts in seeking jobs, housing and public services. “I don’t think there really is anything that is a legitimate alternative to incarceration unless we start talking about mindset, philosophy and ideas because what we’ve had ... is a philosophy of punishment,” Kilgore said. “The notions of rehabilitation, the notions of second chances, the notions of paying your debt to society have disappeared, and instead, we’ve had a punitive regime which has led to mass incarceration.”

FILM FESTIVAL FROM PAGE 1A
JOHN HELLER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Local groups from Pittsburgh participate in the global Frackdown Day by calling for an end to reckless drilling.
Citizens drill gas industry over risky fracking practice PHILADELPHIA — Demonstrators in the United States and other countries protested Saturday against the natural gas drilling process known as fracking that they say threatens public health and the environment. Participants in the “Global Frackdown” campaign posted photos on social media websites showing mostly small groups. But organizer Mark Schlosberg said Saturday afternoon he thought the protests were going well, and he pointed to photos showing larger demonstrations in South Africa and France as well as higher turnouts in cities in California, Colorado and New York. “I think it’s really the communities all over the world coming together to say, ‘We want to protect our water, we want to protect our air, and we want to safeguard our climate future by getting off dirty fossil fuels and saying no to fracking. We need to invest in a renewable energy future,’” said Schlosberg, who is national organizing director for Food & Water Watch, a Washington, D.C., nonprofit that developed the Global Frackdown website and campaign. The immense volumes of natural gas found by fracturing underground shale rock around the country has spurred a boom in natural gas production that has been credited with creating jobs and lowering prices for industry and consumers. But scientists disagree on the risks of hydraulic fracking, a process that injects large volumes of water, sand and chemicals underground to break rock apart and
free the gas. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and many state regulators say fracking can be done safely, and the American Lung Association says it can help reduce air pollution. Opponents say the process can pollute water and sicken residents. At a park in Pittsburgh, protesters signed a petition calling for a moratorium on shale gas drilling. In Buffalo, N.Y., demonstrators called upon Gov. Andrew Cuomo to ban hydraulic fracturing. Jennifer Krill, executive director of Earthworks, said about 50 San Francisco demonstrators marched along the waterfront to the Golden Gate bridge, carrying signs and banners. She posted a picture of a 30-foot-long white banner stretched out on the grass that listed chemicals used in fracking. “I thought it was a very eyecatching way to display one of the key problems with fracking, which is that the public does not know — unless the company chooses to disclose it — what chemicals are involved in hydraulic fracturing,” she said. Kathy Hanratty of Frack-Free Geauga said about 30 to 40 people turned out at a demonstration in the northeast Ohio county, which she said was not bad considering “it’s a small county and a rainy morning.” “It is an affected area,” Hanratty said. “We just had the seismic test trucks go past my house on Monday.” In Ohio, an injection well used to hold wastewater from the fracking process has been tied to a series of earthquakes near Youngstown.
er been screened in the U.S. or only once,” she said. “For example, ‘Father’s Chair,’ the Brazilian fi lm, has only been screened at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.” She said she tries to screen fi lms that are from different genres and countries. This year, the fi lm festival features a love story, a thriller, dramas, and a documentary about the environment in Panama. “I contact distributors throughout the world,” she said. “I follow international fi lm festivals to learn which are the best Latin American fi lms. And I watch around 25 fi lms in order to select six.” Dara Goldman, director of Latin American and Caribbean Studies, helped promote the festival. She said the target audience was University students and faculty members along with others in the Champaign-Urbana area. Graduate student Carlos Bulnes Garcia said he heard about the fi lm festival through his friends. “It sounded interesting because I am from Spain and came to this university to further my studies,” he said. “Being a foreign student made me interested in other countries besides Spain and the Americas. Even though I am not from Latin America, my friends and I thought it would be interesting to learn more about foreign countries.” He also said he was excited to hear a film in Spanish for the first time in a long time, even if it was a little different from what he spoke at home. Goldman said the feature fi lms were not chosen to depict daily life in Latin America. “You can understand something about the kind of questions, the kinds of hopes, the kinds of problems that are expressed by the various Latin American cultures,” Goldman said. Attendance at the festival has increased over the last five years. Cotler said 1,027 people attended in 2011. She attributes the yearly increase in audience members to the increasing publicity Latin American fi lms are receiving. Cotler said her goal is to keep people coming to watch the fi lms while also teaching about the diversity of problems and realities in Latin America through their fi lms. “It is also a good way to learn about culture and listen to different languages,” Cotler said. “Last year, for example, we had (movies in) four languages: Spanish, Portuguese, Quechua, and Aymara.” Goldman said besides enjoying the fi lms on an entertainment level, she hopes after watching the fi lms, viewers will understand something about Latin American cultural expressions. “Personally, I get a sense of diversity of Latin American cultural expression,” Goldman said. “I think there are a subset of ethics that tend to be promoted in the U.S., and I think sometimes people going to the festival are surprised by the array of things they see.”

Former soldier extradited to US, charged with fraud GREG RISLING AND SHAYA TAYEFE MOHAJER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LOS ANGELES — A former Guatemalan soldier accused of taking part in a massacre during that country’s civil war more than a quarter century ago has been extradited to California, where he faces immigration fraud charges. Jose Sosa Orantes was turned over Friday by officials in Canada, where he had been in custody since last year on U.S. charges of lying about his role in Guatemala’s war when he applied for American citizenship in 2008, federal authorities said. Sosa was a member of a Guatemalan military unit known as the “kaibiles” and helped command a unit assigned to track down suspected guerrillas who had stolen military weapons, according to court documents. According to a 2009 federal grand jury indictment, Sosa and dozens of other soldiers stormed
the village of Dos Erres in 1982 and allegedly killed men, women and children as they search for missing weapons. Soldiers bludgeoned villagers with a sledgehammer, threw them into a well and raped women and girls before killing them, court papers said. More than 150 people died. Sosa, who lived for many years in Southern California as a martial arts instructor, was charged with one count each of false statement relating to naturalization and procurement of citizenship or naturalization unlawfully. If convicted of both counts, he faces up to 15 years in prison. “Although he’s not being charged with any war crimes here in the United States, our investigation is a very thorough investigation, and we do gather evidence on his actual foreign crimes, and it’s our endeavor to share that with any foreign entity charging him,” said Claude Arnold, special agent in charge of Immigration and Customs
Enforcement’s homeland security investigations in Los Angeles. Guatemala’s civil war, which lasted more than three decades, claimed at least 200,000 lives before it ended in 1996. The U.S.-backed army was responsible for most of the deaths, according to a truth commission set up to investigate the bloodshed. Sosa is also wanted in Guatemala to face charges for the massacre. An international arrest warrant also has been issued by a Spanish judge for Sosa, who holds Canadian and U.S. citizenship. He faces charges of crimes against humanity, a court official told The Associated Press in April 2011, who spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with the court’s policy. The warrant is part of an investigation into claims made by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Rigoberta Menchu in Spain in a 1999 lawsuit.
Man’s gets wish to pet tiger, but gets charged with misdemeanor BY TOM HAYS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — Before his now-infamous tangle with a Bronx Zoo tiger, David Villalobos adorned his Facebook page with New Age odes to Mother Earth and affi rmations like, “Be love and fearless.” Police said Saturday that Villalobos had told detectives that it was without fear that he leaped from an elevated train into the animal’s den. His reason, they said, was that “he wanted to be one with the tiger.” Villalobos also recounted how, after he landed on all fours, the 400-pound beast attacked him and dragged around by
his foot, said New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne. Despite serious injuries, he claimed he was able to get his wish and pet the tiger — a male Siberian named Bashuta — before his rescue, the spokesman added. Based on those admissions and a complaint from the zoo, police charged the hospitalized Villalobos with misdemeanor trespassing on Saturday. It was unclear if the 25-year-old real estate agent had an attorney, and attempts to reach relatives were unsuccessful. Villalobos’ big-cat exploits Friday afternoon were an instant tabloid sensation: A
front page New York Post story on Saturday was headlined “MAULED!” The Daily News countered with “ZOO-ICIDE,” speculating a death wish. Police had said earlier that Villalobos admitted to a police offi cer at the scene that he made a conscious decision to jump — “Everyone has a reason for what they do in life,” he was quoted as saying — but that his motives were murky and an arrest uncertain. That changed when, during a follow-up interview Saturday, Villalobos told detectives that “his leap was defi nitely not a suicide attempt, but a desire to be one with the tiger,” Browne said.

NYC lawmakers should focus on health education, not restricting the size of sugary drinks
ore than twothirds of adults the United States are either overweight or obese. A similar proportion of overweight or obese adults is also true of New York City, where recent legislation was passed to reduce the “fat” epidemic. At this moment, roughly 60 percent of New Yorkers are overweight or obese, according to New York City Health Commissioner Thomas Farley. And he expects that number to rise. Americans’ increasing waistlines have been a point of contention for the legislative side of public health, and it has spurred several ideas about how to best quell our BMI issue. One that’s been at the forefront of the discussion is New York City’s ban on sugary drinks that exceed 16 ounces. However, that ban’s effectiveness has been questioned since it was first proposed in the spring of 2012. The bill is scheduled to go into effect March 2013. Two key studies have brought this back to the discussion table since New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced the ban this past summer: The New England Journal of Medicine published a study Friday about the positive correlation between intake of sugary drinks, genetic disposition for being overweight, and a person’s likelihood of being overweight. Additionally, substituting sugary drinks with sugar-free drinks “significantly reduced weight gain and body fat gain in healthy children,” as found by another double-blind study published Friday in The New England Journal of Medicine. These studies show strong results about the implications of high consumption of poor drink options, but they demonstrate that sugary drinks are but one contributing factor to our nation’s obesity trends — not the only factor. When Chicago instituted its indoor-smoking ban, it was because lung cancer had seen a dramatic increase in fatalities: from 20 to 80 deaths out of a population of 100,000 from 1950 to 1998. It was understood that the increase was directly caused by an increase in smoking. Unlike the relationship between sugary drink bans and obesity, smoking contributed substantially to lung cancer. That ban had reasonable justification. It may not have significantly reduced the amount of smokers, but it helped to cut secondhand smoke. Conversely, sugary drinks don’t harm anyone but the consumer. You can’t point a finger at an extra-large Coke and say that’s why America is getting fatter. Health associated with weight is due to a slew of factors: physical activity, frequency of meals, and the nutrition content of food can negate the effects of drinking less than 16 ounce of sugary drinks if they are not tended to. The most important thing New York and American legislatures can do today is push a greater understanding of the benefits and downfalls of certain dietary and exercise choices. Instead of educating people about the benefits of healthy food and detriments of sugary drinks, lawmakers are trying to force citizens to make the right choices. We’re well-versed in the harmful effects of smoking, but Americans are still grabbing their Big Mac from McDonald’s and walking less than a 100 yards a day. Ordering a 16 -ounce Coke instead of a 32-ounce one isn’t going to make great strides in our path to a more health-conscience America. Let the people choose, but help them understand the consequences of their actions.

restriction is the fi rst of many restrictions that should come. Although not the only one that could be implemented in addition to the beverage restriction, restaurants should only serve entrees with one or two servings of food. Restrictions like these are not an infringement on our personal freedoms. If McDonald’s were to have a scale by the cash register and deny anyone over 300 pounds a Big Mac, then people would have a cause for protest. But simply decreasing portion sizes still allows us to consume anything we want. Sure, it may take awhile to get used to smaller portions. But don’t you think it’d be refreshing to not feel like you have a soccer ball in your stomach as you struggle out of The Cheesecake Factory? Wouldn’t it be nice to feel full but not sick after your fi nal bite of fettuccine Alfredo? Policy makers and government officials across the nation should follow in Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s footsteps. We are a republic and not a direct democracy for a reason: Sometimes, the people do not know what is best for them. Let’s rely on our elected officials to commit to a healthier nation by restricting portion sizes.
state schools, we are somewhat bound to the state in terms of laws and regulations. Sometimes that’s a pain (can we say, “Illinois tuition?”); sometimes it’s a good thing (our tuition is far lower than a private school like Northwestern University). Whatever it is, though, the school is trained to roll with the punches. But what happens when the state asks a University to do something that goes against the school’s general beliefs? Even worse, what happens when the state requires something that puts a school in a tizzy of uneasiness? Yes, I’m talking about the fact that the state of Colorado requires that the University of Colorado allow students to carry concealed weapons. Of course, this isn’t anything new. The state of Colorado made this law in March. It follows the overall outlook on guns in the state: The gun laws strongly lean toward the individual’s right to carry fi rearms. In Colorado, for example, obtaining a permit for a gun is a relatively lax process compared to other states. It’s just surprising that the law wasn’t repealed immediately after the Colorado shooting at the Aurora movie theater. Colorado faculty met Friday to discuss bringing back a gun-ban on campus and tried to think of ways to convince the state to repeal laws that require the University to permit concealed weapons. Now, I can just hear the arguments against my peace-loving, pacifist nature. Guns don’t kill people; people do. And how will people who need to defend themselves do so if they’re not suffi ciently protected? In fact, David Burneet, spokesman for Student for Concealed Carry, said carrying a fi rearm gives students the right to protect themselves, reported the New York Times. Still, I want to remind everyone of an age-old adage: You can’t fight fi re with fi re. Also, you can’t ignore the fact that the shooter was a grad student on campus — a campus that allowed students to have concealed weapons. But the biggest issue here is how the presence of guns is making the campus feel. Despite the state requiring that the University of Colorado allow its students to carry fi rearms, that doesn’t make the campus feel more secure. Just because more students have guns doesn’t mean that they will be able to stop another shooting. The shooting hit close to the campus’ heart. In light of recent events, the only kind of culture that could exist is one full of uneasiness. The state needs to look at the University of Colorado’s climate right now. Overall, the feel of the whole campus, especially coming from teachers, is disquieting. One faculty member put it best when she said the campus is “a place where we depend on being able to speak our minds and offer sometimes controversial opinions in a free and open place.” It’s hard to promote that train of thought, however, when there is a widespread climate of fear. If a controversial topic escalates to a student getting angry, there will now be an underlying stress that a student may use a weapon to enforce a point. This is an extreme example, but after an event like the Aurora shooting, it’s not too farfetched. But after the incident in July, there is a right to be unnerved when your college campus — a place that was supposed to be safe for students — allows concealed weapons. Colorado wants to be sure that those with a permit and reason to have a concealed weapon have the right to own one. That’s fi ne. But what about the students’ and faculty’s right to feel safe on their campus? All states should heed Colorado as an example. No, the issue in question may not always be about concealed weapons. But before they go and issue laws to mimic the state’s attitude, they need to think: “How is going to affect the climate of education and safety at the University?”

More small-scale experiments on school choice may yield great benefits in future JOSEPH VANDEHEY Opinions columnist
he election is looming ever higher these days, but fear not, dear reader. Today I will not be delving into the political mud. Instead, I want to shed some light on a topic often mentioned, but only rarely discussed, in today’s political scene: school choice. First, what is school choice? The notion that, by giving parents a greater ability to select where their children attend school — elementary and high school, namely — one introduces the classical market forces of supply and demand into the educational system and, as a result, improves the overall quality of education. School choice often takes one of two forms: voucher programs, where parents can receive some assistance from the government if they wish to place their children into a private school, or lotteries, where a large number of students apply to a small number of randomly assigned places at a hightier local school. But does school choice work? Kinda. It depends on what your defi nition of “work” is. The metric in vogue in today’s research is student academic performance. The evidence I
found came to many different conclusions, but generally said that, for students who participate in these programs, there was either no impact or a slight positive impact on their performance. Which is a very long way of saying that, if there is a silver bullet for education, this ain’t it. Educational scientists study a vast number of different variables that contribute to students’ academic performance. Some are known to hold a great deal of power over students. Socioeconomic status, for example, is a big one, and so is the quality of their teachers. School choice, on the other hand, does not seem to do participating students any harm, but how much good it does is still an open question. But I snuck a conceit in there: I said “participating students.” The rationale for school choice says that it should not only benefit those who can attend the best schools, but that, because schools would compete for the best students, it should also produce a halo effect, improving the general quality of schools in the area. Here, though, the science is even murkier. Some studies show a mild improvement in overall quality, and some even show a decrease in quality for certain students. There are, after all, lots of ways for the educational system to muck with the Invisible Hand of economic theory. Devoutly religious parents may prefer a religious school over a secular one
despite poorer academic standards, and in densely populated areas, the worst schools may still have a guaranteed selection of students just because there are only so many seats available in the small group of top-tier schools. If parents are unable to take advantage of school choice programs (or, worse yet, do not care enough about their kids to bother), then their children are plain out of luck. In fact, one study found that the presence of school choice had almost no effect at all on whether children in lowincome households could attend a good school. All of this leads me to question why school choice should be a topic of national politics. It’s not yet time for them to bother with it. Many experiments and studies still need to be done and should be done, too: There is enough data to suggest that school choice might be effective under the right circumstances, but we still need to discover what those right circumstances are. So, more smallscale experiments with school choice may yield great benefits in the future. And they may answer one of the most important questions of all: In a world full of ideas on how to improve education, is school choice worth the time, effort and money currently being put into it?

A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, but 32-oz sodas make you fat KIRSTEN KELLER Opinions columnist
the spring of this year, the Board of Health in New York City proposed to do something that no other city in the U.S. has attempted to do before: restrict portion sizes. And on Sept. 13, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the city’s Board of Health effectively banned food services in the city from selling sugary beverages in containers larger than 16 ounces. Many opponents of these restrictions are up in arms over their freedom to consume what and how much they want. But it may not be apparent that this recent restriction is not eliminating the sale of sugary beverages — it’s just making them smaller. If you want a 32-ounce Coke, you can have it. Just buy two 16-ounce cups. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Trust for America’s Health released a report Tuesday predicting that by 2030, if current obesity rates continue, every state could have an obesity rate above 44 percent. I’m sure you’ve heard these types of reports all your life. And by now you probably ignore them, simply because it’s common knowledge that
Americans tend to be overweight. It has become a social norm to have a tire around your waist and waddle by the time you’re 40. With these commonalities, it seems unlikely that U.S. citizens are going to make a broad-reaching move anytime soon to commit to a healthy lifestyle. And if this trend continues, in 20 years, health care costs for obesity-related diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and hypertension, will have increased from $48 billion to $66 billion in the U.S. It seems as if the mayor of New York City is one of the few who believe that more drastic action needs to be taken after many government and private fitness and health programs have not had as large an impact as one would hope. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the average restaurant meal is four times larger than it was in the 1950s. We need to relearn portion sizes and eliminate the culture of obesity in the U.S. After all, personal health affects many other things; being healthy would influence people around you who see that you are eating less food than they are. It would cut back on health care costs. Eventually, it would relinquish the U.S. as the title-holder for the world’s most obese country. New York City’s sugary beverage

No, unfortunately Poehler didn’t win an Emmy award for Best Actress in a Comedy for her role as Leslie Knope in “Parks and Recreation,” but I would say she, again, owned the Emmys. Yes, she pulled another stunt. Like last year’s act where all comedy actress nominees went on stage when their name was read, Poehler and winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus made the night all worth it. Once Louis-Dreyfus won her third Emmy for her role in “Veep,”she celebrated with Poehler before making her way to the stage. She then started reading her speech, which jokingly was actually Poehler’s. For me, it was the highlight of the evening. At Sunday night’s telecast on ABC, host Jimmy Kimmel was average, unlike the Jimmy (Fallon) who hosted two years
Damian Lewis defeated predicted winner Bryan Cranston for the Best Actor in a Drama category. With the “Breaking Bad” absence from the Emmys last year, I thought Cranston would continue his streak and win his fourth Emmy this year. Luckily for us, we got to see Lewis have a brilliant Britishaccent speech. Lewis’ co-star Claire Danes followed his lead and won the Best Actress in a Drama for “Homeland” and had another winning speech. After the show won both actor categories, I had an inkling “Homeland,” which was my favorite new drama last season, could do the unthinkable and defeat “Mad Men” for Best Drama. And indeed, I was right. The Showtime drama stopped “Mad Men” from winning its fifth-straight Emmy for Best
accomplished the three-peat for Best Comedy. Personally, I thought the only show that could have defeated it would have been “Parks and Recreation,” and that wasn’t even nominated. Most of the show was fi lled with watching people who already won, and the latter half was fi lled with HBO’s “Game Change” sweeping most of the Miniseries or TV movie category, including Best Actress, Best Director, Best Writing, and Best Miniseries or Movie. But, luckily for all of us, Amy Poehler was nominated, who was smart to know even if she didn’t win, she could still make the Emmys an exciting show, even if for a little while.

Scheelhaase benched for rusty performance Quarterback says he’s not at 100 percent yet BY JAMAL COLLIER STAFF WRITER
Louisiana Tech head coach Sonny Dykes said after the game that Illinois was “a little unsettled at quarterback tonight.” That’s putting it lightly. This was not how Illini quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase wanted to make his return from injury. Not only did the Illini get walloped at home 52-24, but Scheelhaase didn’t even make it out of the first quarter. Reilly O’Toole replaced Scheelhaase near the end of the quarter, and his night was over. He didn’t appear to be limping on the sideline and didn’t have his ankle looked at by team trainers. Scheelhaase remained on the sidelines with his helmet still on his head, watching O’Toole; even Miles Osei entered the game for a short period of time. Illinois head coach Tim Beckman said he thought Scheelhaase looked rusty. “I’m not as fast as I wish I was,” Scheelhaase said. “So you gotta get it back. But for sure (my ankle) was ready to play.” He didn’t begin the game rusty; Scheelhaase completed his first seven passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. His first incompletion was an interception, and it all went downhill from there. On the next drive, with the Illini trailing for the first time, 14-7, Scheelhaase didn’t have enough burst on a rushing attempt to get around a linebacker and lost a fumble, which resulted in another Louisiana Tech scoring drive. “That was really uncharacteristic,” said Scheelhaase, who acknowledged that he’s not exactly 100 percent yet. “But on that play, it’s one of those things that I just have to get back to, where I can run away from people. That’s a play that there times in my career. ... I’ve been able to run away from people, so it’s frustrating.” O’Toole was able to move the ball for the Illini, leading a second-quarter scoring drive that lasted 13 plays and took nearly seven minutes off the clock. He finished the day going 19-for-25 with 120 yards, just a week after setting the school’s record for completion percentage. Like all backups, O’Toole said, he prepares throughout the week like he’s going to be the starter, so he was only thinking “score (points)” when his named was called. Beckman wouldn’t commit to a starter for next week’s game against Penn State, saying he would have to evaluate both quarterbacks throughout the week. But turnovers are the ultimate sin for Beckman on offense; he quickly benched Osei against Arizona State after he began to turn the ball over and same with Scheelhaase on Saturday. Illinois may have a battle for the starting quarterback job again. “No, you always want competition and to have that there, but you just have to go out there and do your thing,” Scheelhaase said. “I’ve never looked at it as a battle so much as it is us doing what we can to better our team.”

Illinois’ Annie Luhrsen (11) sets the ball toward Anna Dorn (5) during the match against Minnesota at Huff Hall on Friday.
Illini split 1st weekend of conference play BY ELIOT SILL STAFF WRITER
Another weekend, another batch of positives to build on and negatives to combat for the Illinois volleyball team. The Illini (7-5, 1-1 Big Ten) were outplayed by Minnesota (112, 2-0) on Friday in three sets, losing 25-17, 25-17, 25-23 to the No. 12 Golden Gophers team loaded with talent. On Sunday, Illinois was evenly matched through four sets with Wisconsin before pulling away with a strong fifth set and a positive note on which to end an up-and-down weekend. On Friday, Illinois ran into a Gophers team that was older and more ready for the intensity of Big Ten play. The Illini defense’s left side struggled to counter the fierce hitting of Gopher outside Katherine Harms, who finished with a game-high 17 kills on her 30 attempts, good for a .400 hitting percentage. “She’s a strong player,” middle blocker Anna Dorn said of Harms. “She can definitely hit a lot of shots
and kind of abused our block (Friday). ... I don’t think we took her seriously enough.” The Gophers outhit the Illini .375-.205 on the night. Despite outblocking the Gophers nine to 5.5, Illinois head coach Kevin Hambly said it was a lack of deflections at the net that put more pressure on the Illinois back row and led to easy points for Minnesota. Down 15-19 in the third set of that game, Illinois made a 7-3 run to tie it at 22. Just as it seemed the Illini were accruing momentum, however, the Gophers finished out the set 3-1 and ended the match. Hambly said the team was playing passively earlier in the game and became more aggressive toward the end of the third set. “If there’s anything that we can take away from this, it’s that we learned that we have to go out and attack teams and compete together,” Hambly said. Sunday was a different story for Illinois, facing a relatively untested Wisconsin (13-2, 1-1) team, which had gone 12-1 against
a comparatively weak preconference schedule before beating Northwestern on Friday. The Illini were evenly matched with Wisconsin through the game’s first four sets, as the teams reciprocated each other, going 25-23, 23-25, 25-22, 22-25. Illinois could not get an early lead against the Badgers until the fourth set, before which the earliest Illinois had led was 12-11 in the third set. “We had started every set slow, and that kind of hurt our momentum, and we were fighting back every single time,” setter Annie Luhrsen said. “In the fifth set, we kind of came out and just attacked them in every aspect of the game — from the service line, from attacking, from every standpoint, from defense, and that helped our attackers especially.” With Illinois on the verge of victory in the fourth set, it was a late run by Wisconsin that extended the match. The Badgers reeled off five straight points to turn a 22-20 Illini lead into a set victory for the visitors.
The Illini were all business in the fifth set, as Luhrsen spread the ball around and got many attackers involved, which proved too much for Wisconsin to handle. The fifth set was the only one in which the Illini won the first point and gave themselves an early advantage. Luhrsen credited the passing for enabling her to spread her sets around. “Getting it around 5 feet (away from the net) allows me to be able to go to Lizzie (McMahon) and the middles, and Lizzie and I worked really hard on our connection this week in practice, and I think it showed up (Sunday),” Luhrsen said. McMahon had a season high of 19 kills on 42 attempts, hitting .333. Middle blockers Erin Johnson and Anna Dorn hit .700 and .478 on 10 and 23 kill attempts, respectively, and outside hitter Jocelynn Birks had a game-high 20 kills on 61 attempts.

Soccer falls to Penn St., loses 1st home match this season
Hockey wins 1, loses 1 to to start out Fabbrini era
BY CHARLIE MANIATES
The Nick Fabbrini era is under way, with mixed results, as the Illinois hockey team split its inaugural regular season matches against Michigan State. Illinois lost 5-4 in a shootout Friday but came back with a 4-2 victory Saturday. Despite recent success against the Spartans, which included the Illini winning nine of their last 10, penalties and defensive lapses left the Illini (1-0-1) a little disappointed. On opening night, the Illini came roaring out of the gates. Freshman John Olen wasted no time contributing in his debut when he netted a power-play goal just 4:07 into the first period. “It was awesome,” Olen said. “The fans were awesome; it was loud. It was really fun.” After Michigan State countered with its first goal seven minutes later, fellow freshman Kevin Chowaniec scored a goal on the power play with just under a minute left in the opening period. “The first period, I thought we played really well,” Fabbrini said. “We really used our speed to our advantage ... but the second period we got away from all the stuff that worked in the first. Basically, we played about as bad as we have all year.” The second period saw four Illini penalties, which resulted in the tying and go-ahead goals for the Spartans — within 33
Coach: Illini made simple mistakes against Spartans, need to get better BY STEPHEN BOURBON STAFF WRITER
It was a Jekyll-and-Hyde type of weekend for the Illinois soccer team. On Friday, the Illini shut out Ohio State with a 1-0 victory, led by freshman midfielder Taylore Peterson, who tallied the only goal of the match. Steph Panozzo recorded her third shutout of the season in a game that was headlined by rain. “We always play good soccer throughout the game, but I think in Ohio State we played from the first minute to the last minute,” senior forward Niki Read said. “We had no mental breaks, we played our butts off.” Head coach Janet Rayfield felt the same way. “We are certainly excited for the win tonight,” Rayfield said in a press release. “That’s a good Ohio State team, and it’s great to get some wins in the Big Ten. I’m really proud of the way we played soccer. We battled for the ball, and when we possessed it, we made some good decisions.” Sunday, however, was a different story. In a rematch of last season’s Big Ten championship game, the Illini hosted No. 11 Penn State. It took the Nittany Lions only 46 seconds before they found the back of the net, forcing the Orange and Blue to play from behind right off the bat. After that, the Nittany Lions kept up the pace and took a

The Illini went into halftime trailing 3-0, and Penn State added another goal late in the second half to win the match 4-0. It was the first home loss of the season for them. The Illini often had trouble connecting on passes and finishing the opportunities that they had on offense. In addition, the speed of the Nittany Lion’s front line allowed them to get behind the Illini defense, giving them several solid scoring chances. “We were two different teams this weekend, and the team on Friday could beat a lot of teams,” Rayfield said. “The team that played today certainly wasn’t at the level that (it) needed to beat Penn State. They came out on fire, and we came out a little flat.” One positive for the Illini was that the defense adjusted and held down the Penn State offense after allowing three goals within the first 30 minutes of the match. Senior mid-
fielder Nicole Denenberg called it a matter of changing their mentality and playing harder than the way they played at the start of the game. The story was not the same for the offense, which went scoreless for the fourth time this season. “It’s harder to get in behind when they’re so fast,” Read said. “I think our chances were good — they had some good saves, and sometimes it just goes over the bar.” Illinois insisted that it is not concerned, though. Last year, the Illini got off to a slow start at the beginning of Big Ten play, but they bounced back and won the conference championship. “Hopefully we’ll take from this a good lesson,” Read said. “This week at practice, I know we’re going to work hard, and this is going to be in the back of our head, so we’ll be ready for that.”

the fi rst two home games this season, the media would wait for quite some time for Tim Beckman to do his WDWS postgame interview before he’d approach reporters, drenched in liquid, with a smile on his face. In home game No. 3, the media didn’t wait for very long, as Beckman did a short radio interview, discussing Illinois’ 52-24 loss to Louisiana Tech . He then shuffled into the press conference room and dejectedly answered questions thrown his way. Sure his team was upstaged at home against a nonconference team many people probably didn’t expect to dominate, but Beckman need not worry, as conference play is here to save this Illinois team. The season started off with optimism for teams not named Ohio State and Penn State, as little guys Illinois, Indiana and Purdue only had to deal with Wisconsin for Leaders Division supremacy. After nonconference play, the Badgers aren’t looking so hot as they’ve fi red their offensive line coach , and preseason Heisman candidate Montee Ball was involved in
an off-the-field altercation and is now battling a concussion . Indiana and Purdue both had last week off, but each have respectable 2-1 starts to the season. Now that conference play begins, those records go out the window, and everyone has a clean slate to start with. Of the eight remaining games (four at home) for the Illini — keeping in mind this may be one of the worst Big Ten seasons in recent memory — winning six of those games doesn’t seem out of the picture. The only guaranteed losses Illini fans should expect is the team’s its trip to Ann Arbor, Mich., on Oct. 13 and trip to Columbus, Ohio, on Nov. 3. On Saturday, Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson’s four-interception performance was the defi nition of the Wolverines’ continued struggles, but to think Illinois could beat them on the road would only be kicking them while they’re down. Conference play will probably let Michigan get its head right. The other six contests, though, are fair game. Between the four eligible teams, five of their eight games (nine for Indiana and Purdue since those two were off last week, but nonconference games that don’t matter, anyway) are against the other teams within their division, obviously. In the three games that vary,
no team has a distinct scheduling advantage. Wisconsin travels to Nebraska and hosts Michigan State and Minnesota, Meanwhile, Indiana visits Northwestern and hosts Michigan State and Iowa, and Purdue travels to Minnesota and Iowa and welcomes Michigan. Compare that to the Illini’s schedule: Illinois travels to Michigan and Northwestern and hosts Minnesota. And they all seem about equal. Illinois and Purdue have a leg up on Wisconsin and Indiana as it has two of its three contests at home, whereas the Badgers and Hoosiers play two on the road. Now that the disappointing nonconference schedule is over for everyone except the two Indiana teams, the only thing Big Ten fans learned was that conference supremacy is not in the foreseeable future. Out the door are SEC teams and up-tempo offenses to ring in another year of smashmouth, defensive-minded, Midwestern football. For the Illini, it begins with a Penn State team that’s riding a two-game winning streak − something the Nittany Lions haven’t done since 1997 − bringing Team Outlaw to Champaign to take on Team Vulture.
