Bishop: ‘work to be done’

Court backs same-sex parents The Iowa State Supreme Court now requires both parents to be listed on birth certificates, regardless of sex. By Brent Griffiths

orientation. Sexuality is not private for many people; coming out is something LGBTQ people do in their daily lives.” Robinson said the struggle for gay Christians was especially difficult. “It’s easier to come out as gay to straight people than to come out as religious to gay people,” he said. “The experience has been so harmful, so abusive, anyone who embraces both is kind of an enigma.” Chuck Hurley, the vice president of the Family Leader, previously told The Daily Iowan that the organization remained opposed to same-sex marriage in Iowa. “We will continue speaking the truth and love about marriage, because we love our children and grandchildren, and all the research across all political and cultural divide agrees kids do best when they have a mom and dad,” he said in an

The Iowa Supreme Court expanded on its landmark 2009 decision legalizing same-sex marriage last week by requiring a child’s birth certificate to include both parents’ names. “These realities demonstrate that the disparate treatment of married lesbian couples is less effective and efficient, and that some other unarticulated reason, such as stereotype or prejudice, may explain the real objective of the state,” Justice David Wiggins wrote in the decision. The Gartner v. Iowa Department of Public Health decision changes the previous stance of the state Health Department, which refused to issue birth certificates listing both parents in a lesbian marriage. The decision asked a lower district court to remove a temporary stoppage of requests to add names to certificates — formally providing a route to change the policy. “We’re thrilled with the decision today, and once again, the Iowa Supreme Court guaranteed equal rights for all Iowans,” said Camilla Taylor of Lambda Legal and lead attorney for the Gartners. “The court said we meant what we said in Varnum. Equal is equal.” Taylor said Heather and Melissa Gartner, a lesbian couple, encountered many difficulties after their daughter Mackenzie’s birth. Mackenzie developed severe health issues, which required the birth moth-

The first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church visited Iowa City this weekend with a message. By Nick Hassett

One retired bishop believes that while widespread acceptance of same-sex marriage is inevitable, even in the mainline Christian churches, the hardest part in the debate for equality will be convincing the inland areas of the United States. Bishop V. Gene Robinson, IX Bishop of New Hampshire, shared this message in Iowa City as the first openly gay bishop. “I love being in Iowa,” Robinson said. “The East and West Coasts are the low hanging fruit, but the real work to be done is in the center of the country.” When the 2009 Varnum v. Brien Iowa Supreme Court decision established same-sex marriage in Iowa, many supporters thought the fight had been won. Robinson, of the Episcopal Church, thinks there’s a larger goal to strive for. “There are still hearts and minds to be

won,” he said. “Not everybody is on board with it. Just because some of these things have come to be doesn’t mean the work is over.” Robinson gave a keynote speech at the Congregational United Church of Christ, 30 N. Clinton St., on May 4, capping a day of panels on the topic of same-sex marriage. The panels addressed topics ranging from the legal issues behind same-sex marriage to participating in a congregation as a same-sex couple. One of the panelists, Raven Rowe, said sexuality was not something to be kept in one’s private life and that when she mentions her wife to others, she’s never certain how they’ll react. “There are a lot of people in our world that think sexuality belongs in the bedroom, but sexual identity occurs in our living rooms, our churches,” she said. “I’ve never apologized for my sexual

College of Ed. overhauls its ‘brand’ Officials say the College of Education is moving in the right direction after recent controversies. By Cassidy Riley

Officials say the launch of the University of Iowa College of Education’s new brand honors the past and looks forward to the future. On May 3, the College of Education launched its new brand, “Leaders, Scholars, and Innovators,” by throwing a launch party. Interim Dean Nicholas Colangelo said the new brand is more than a new look. “We wanted a look that says we’ve been here, we’ve really accomplished a lot, but we’re moving toward a vibrant future,” he said. UI Provost P. Barry Butler said he thinks the new brand is representative of what the college is. “The College of Education’s new brand, ‘Leaders. Scholars. Innovators,’ speaks volumes about its strengths,” he wrote in an email. “I support the initiative and extend my appreciation to Interim Dean Colangelo for his forward-looking approach to advancing the college.” Colangelo said the launch is a showing of how strong the college is despite

For Iowa Campaign

Research meshes with UI goals By Stacey Murray

Chris Coffey and Tom Schnell, both University of Iowa professors and researchers, have offices sitting on opposite sides of the Iowa River. Coffey is a professor in the College of Public Health, and Schnell is an associate professor in the College of Engineering. Despite being part of different areas of academia, their research connects under a common goal unveiled as a part of the UI Foundation’s latest fundraising push. “Academic research at all levels is essential for a university to continue pushing the edge of discovery and innovation,” Schnell said. The UI Foundation unveiled the newest fundraising campaign on May 2, “For Iowa. Forever More: The Campaign for the University of Iowa.” Roughly $1 billion has been raised since 2008. The

campaign aims to reach $1.7 billion by December 2016. Dan Sandersfeld, the director of creative services at the foundation, said each college and unit identifies top priorities. Those priorities are then calculated to arrive at the grand total. One of the campaign’s three main goals is ensuring a healthier and more sustainable world. The work of Schnell and Coffey is an example of research made possible by private funding. Coffey, director of the UI Clinical Trials Statistical and Data Management Center, obtained funding from the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s disease. Coffey is studying short-term markers in patients’ bodies to determine if medications are working toward long-term progress. Typically, the medications for this disease take a long time to show benefits, so Coffey’s research aims to measure different chem-

icals in the body to find signs of progress sooner. The research is also an investment for the UI. “Research brings a national attention to the university,” he said. “It helps with the reputation.” Additionally, he said, researching medicine and sustainability pushes the UI into the foreground of academic discussion. Schnell studies human factors of flight, with research interests in Live Virtual Constructive training and flight-training effectiveness. His research analyzes data taken from simulated training and data gathered from pilots in flight to see if the experiences, cognitive workload, and situational awareness are comparable. This allows the training programs to determine if the simulations used in training adequately train pilots for real-life scenarios. “We need to out-educate our competition abroad,”

Schnell said. “The educational pipeline has a very long lag line, especially in STEM disciplines.” While aviation studies and Parkinson’s medication seemingly don’t mesh academically, Coffey said, research in general provides a competitive tool for the university. “It puts us in the playing field with leading institutions,” he said. “It puts Iowa in the conversation.”

Campaign Health The University of Iowa Foundation unveiled its campaign on May 2 with three main goals in mind for the university. This is the first in a three-part series. The goals listed are to: • Educate students at the UI • Ensure a healthier and more sustainable world • Enrich commerce, culture and communities Source: UI Foundation

Metro King nixes Senate run Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, announced he would not run for the seat of retiring Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, leaving Republicans without a candidate. “I believe my duty is to utilize the honor of serving Iowans in Congress by maximizing my effectiveness. I owe it to all Iowans and Americans to give you my best effort and best judgment,” he said in a statement. “I cannot, in good conscience, turn my back on the destiny decisions of Congress today in order to direct

all my efforts to a Senate race for next year, while hoping to gain the leverage to put the genie back in the bottle in 2015.” Speculation had been centered on King after fellow Republicans Rep. Tom Latham, Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey also declined to try to replace the five-term Democrat. Other Republicans have said they would consider the opportunity if King declined to run, including Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Red Oak, who previously told The Daily Iowan her interests

Trial set in lascivious-acts case

Trial has been set for a local man who was accused of forcing a child to touch him inappropriately.

On March 15, Andre Poole, 19, was charged with lascivious acts with a child. According to a police complaint, he was allegedly baby-sitting his cousin’s children when he forced a 9-year-old girl to “rub his erect penis through his pants.” He allegedly threatened to blackmail her if she didn’t do it, the complaint said. The girl later told her parents, who contacted the Iowa City police. Poole’s pretrial conference is set for July 5, and his trial is set for July 16. — by Cassidy Riley

General and unsolicited advice: • Before you get all dressed up and take your girlfriend out for a nice dinner at her favorite restaurant, always call the restaurant first. This helps ensure that the reservations you think you made wasn’t just part of that very real and elaborate sex dream you had last weekend. (Similarly: Don’t be surprised if there’s no walrus eating fettuccini in the bathtub; that was also part of the dream. Weirdo.) • When someone is hitting on you at a bar, and they tell you their name, it is never appropriate to get really excited and inform them that you once had a pet with that same name. It is even less advised that you then tell them the unfortunate circumstances under which that pet perished. Maybe their mother went the same way. (There have been a surprising number of women named “Princess” who’ve gotten hit by cars while chasing Frisbees into the street, you know.) • If you have a cat, and you’re a man, never do squats naked. Cats love to attack dangly bits. Cats have claws and/or teeth. Your dangly bits do not. Probably. • When you’re home over winter break, never go hunting for your Christmas presents under your parents’ bed. Maybe your parents like to get freaky now that you’ve left the house. And maybe they don’t always bother to rinse their toys off afterwards. Maybe you should’ve just wait until Christmas like a good little boy. Maybe you’ve never really stopped crying and only have a humor column as an emotional outlet.

This is the first year the Cambus is extending its hours for the finals week Interdorm route. It will cost $800 for the week. UISG paid for half. Cambus Director Brian McClatchey said UISG proposed the service last semester, but there was not enough time to implement it right away in the fall. He said he hopes it will

be an option during finals weeks in the future. “Obviously, it isn’t reasonable for us to run all night long but at least this gives students a safer ride home late at night,” McClatchey said. Safety is a main concern among UI and Iowa City officials. Chuck Green, the assistant vice president for the UI police, said

College of Education’s new brand The College of Education launched its new brand May 3. Some of the elements of the new brand include • “Leaders, Scholars, Innovators” tagline • Brand new website • Banners and posters profiling individuals in the school Source: Interim Dean Nicholas Colangelo

“One of my biggest recommendations is to try to get rid of the grin-and-grip yearbook photos,” said de-

signer Kevin Mellen in a presentation. “What I’m recommending is very active photography.”

there is not an increase in the number of safety incidents during finals week, but he believes the service will be beneficial. “Once the IMU starts running 24/7 during finals week, officers are put on extra patrol so students know there is someone else in the building,” Green said. “They may feel wary about the quietness and

isolation.” Nite Ride, the service offered for women, will also extend its hours during finals week. The buses will be available from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. UI junior Caroline Kopp and senior Gretchen Nichols said they plan to use the service. “I would study until midnight [during last

semester’s finals week],” Kopp said. “I would usually just walk because the buses would come so infrequently it was just faster to walk. I think [the new Cambus service] is good to have, because it is so late at night, and people are already stressed out enough they don’t pay attention when they’re walking.”

Jill Fishbaugh, the college’s director of strategic communications who was involved in the creation of the new brand, she said the message they are conveying was the product of several focus groups. “The people who make up this college go out and effect change and solve problems because of the education that they receive here,” she said. “[Leaders, Scholars, and Innovators] was the res-

onating message that it seemed that all of the people affiliated with this college represent.” Greg Hamot, a UI professor of teaching and learning, said it looks appealing and the message

comes across well. “The substance of it very much encapsulates what this college means to people and for people in regards to scholarship, the community, and the students,” he said.

Carnival benefits Mobile Clinic The University of Iowa Mobile Clinic hosted its first Spring Carnival fundraiser on Sunday afternoon. By Rebecca Morin

Student volunteers from the University of Iowa Mobile Clinic stationed themselves at a new location on Sunday afternoon in hopes to raise money and attention about the clinic. “[The Mobile Clinic] is not very well supported, and it is just run by med students, and they need help to better serve the population,” said Emily Farmer, a human-physiology major and a volunteer at the carnival. “The clinic is just a great way to help those who do not have health care.” The UI Mobile Clinic, a primarily student-run program, hosted its first Spring Carnival fundraiser on the Pedestrian Mall, sponsored by UI Medicus as well as with the support of UI Carver College of Medicine Student Govern-

ment on Sunday afternoon. The carnival also raised money for the 1105 Project, which is occurring in conjunction with Shelter House. The medical school student government collaborated with the Mobile Clinic on the event, and Wanakee Carr, the president-elect of the student government, said she hopes to continue creating a stronger bond. “We are trying to find ways to become more involved with the clinic,” she said. “This year is the first time we have created stronger connections, and we want to be there to support them in their endeavors.” With a yearly budget of roughly $12,000 provided by grants, donations, and through some financial support from the medical school, the clinic still tries to find extra ways to con-

tinue building its funds. The goal for Sunday’s Spring Carnival was to raise at least $2,100. However, undergraduate Mobile Clinic liaison Reeya Patel said the group members would be happy with whatever amount of money they raise. “If the event is successful, we will keep continuing to try to make it bigger each year,” she said. “We do want to make this a spring event.” The Mobile Clinic has been around for more than 10 years to bring together professional students from different medical disciplines to help diagnose and treat the uninsured and under-insured local populations. The clinic currently serves five sites with locations in Iowa City, West Liberty, and Columbus Junction, and the clinic visits about once a month

at each site. Local businesses and a couple of organizations also helped to contribute to Sunday’s event. Local businesses, including Yotopia, Running Wild, and Bluebird Diner, donated gift-card prizes that totaled more than $1,000. Medicus provided many of the games. Donations from families also helped fund the event. Students from other disciplines also volunteered at the carnival. Students from Physician Assistant Studies set up an information table and gave out free blood-pressure checkups. “We work with the supervising physician in the Mobile Clinic,” said Shelly Hsiao, a first-year physician-assistant student. “A lot of people know about the clinic, but it is also important to get every aspect of it out into public eye.”

Vote ‘Yes’ on the Justice Center I n November 2012, when the original Johnson County Justice Center was presented to the public for a vote, the Editorial Board recommended that the voters reject the bond referendum. The original center narrowly failed to garner the necessary support of 60 percent of Johnson County residents. A slightly altered justice-center proposal will be put to another vote on Tuesday, and, in the intervening months, we have changed our mind with regard to the virtues of the proposed complex that will include a new jail, the Sheriff’s Office, and increased courtroom space. We encourage Johnson County voters to vote yes on the justice center this time around. In November, we opposed the Justice Center on the grounds that it was too expensive and that jail overcrowding might be better combated by diverting more county resources into jail-alternative programs. Our position was naïve; we viewed the debate as too many do, in ideological terms — as a product of the tension between law and order conservatism and libertarianism. But the need for the justice center is ultimately rooted in pragmatism, in real concerns about the long-term health of the county’s facilities. We missed this point originally, and we believe those who view the justice center as simply an oppressive extension of the criminal-justice system continue to miss this point. The bond referendum to be voted is set at $43.5 million, down approximately $3.3 million from November’s asking price. It’s not a massive price cut, but to achieve these savings, the county reduced the size of the new jail from 243 beds to 195, reduced the number of new courtrooms from six to four, and made some cosmetic changes to the building’s façade. We originally criticized the county for failing to adequately pare down the justice-center plan in response to the failure of the first plan. But we recognize now that the current facilities are indeed inadequate and that now, when borrowing money is relatively cheap, is an ideal time to begin a new building project. The current jail is overcrowded; overflow inmates are routinely shipped to nearby counties to be held at a high cost to Johnson County. The jail’s outdated linear design limits the ability of guards to supervise inmate behavior and thus compromises the safety of guards and inmates alike. Difficulties in monitoring inmates mean that more guards are required in the jail at all times. County officials say that the new jail’s pod-based design would significantly improve inmate super-

vision and reduce the number of guards needed to effectively monitor the jail. The county Courthouse also has serious shortcomings. The current building lacks sufficient office space and courtroom space to handle the county’s caseload in a timely manner. Case backlog contributes to jail overcrowding — many of the jail’s inmates are high-risk offenders awaiting trial. But inefficiency in the courthouse also affects Johnson County residents who aren’t in jail; because civil court cases are given low priority, they are often delayed substantially. The justice center will improve efficiency in Johnson County’s courts and improve safety and accessibility in its existing facilities. In our original piece, the Editorial Board stressed the need for jail-alternative programs to reduce overcrowding. There are numerous programs in place to divert people from jail time, including a mental-health-diversion program that reduced the average daily inmate population by around six inmates last year according to county officials. Other such programs are intended to keep marijuana and hard-drug users properly treated and out of jail. Unfortunately, the resources allocated to such programs are limited by the heavy resource burden placed on the county by an overcrowded jail and a backlogged court system. Building the justice center should allow the county to allocate more money to these valuable programs. It is clear that the justice center represents a necessary upgrade to the county’s criminal-justice infrastructure. Some opponents of the center say that upgraded, larger facilities would lead to more widespread imprisonment. We have never subscribed to the notion of “If you build it, then they’ll fill it.” There’s no reason to believe that simply increasing space in the jail would lead to more arrests and incarcerations. Ultimately, this debate is less about the nature of the criminal-justice system and more about facilities and money. The county cannot change the state and federal laws that the police are responsible for enforcing. The current facilities are manifestly inadequate, borrowing costs are low. We should take this opportunity to build the justice center. We encourage Johnson County residents to vote yes on the justice center. Your turn. Do you support the proposed justice center?

Letters to the Editor Who’s extreme? I am writing this, not in response to the entire article that appeared in the DI May 1, but more specifically to the comments made by Jill June, the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland. In the editorial the DI ran, June stated that the amendment stating that personhood began at conception was “an extreme amendment” “far out of the mainstream and could have dangerous consequences.” I have numerous issues with this line of argument. First of all, June represents an organization that has found itself in hot water numerous times in the past few weeks for comments made over its stance on abortion in the wake of the Kermit Gosnell trial currently

underway in Philadelphia. A video has surfaced of a lobbyist for the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates just over a month ago during a hearing in the Florida Legislature that in the case of a livebirth abortion, “any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,” leaving the option of infanticide open. Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania was told of the conditions in the Gosnell abortion clinic and encouraged their clients to go to the Department of Health, but the organization itself did nothing to address the issue. Planned Parenthood, in my mind, is in no position to be lecturing others on “extreme positions” when it comes to abortion. Not to mention it disregards that life beginning at concep-

tion is a belief held by many Christians and is a growing medical consensus (see Rachel Warren’s article “Pro [Whose?] Choice,” Chapman Law Review). The issue of abortion continues to be an extremely divisive issue and statements such the ones made by June do little to advance the argument. Jacob Bourgeois Iowa City resident

Vote YES on justice center I am so proud to live in a community that feels it is important to have a safe and easily accessible courthouse that meets the guidelines for the Americans with Disabilities Act. A courthouse with enough courtrooms to give our citizens a fair and speedy trial; a courthouse that has enough room

so witnesses and prisoners can be separated; a courthouse in which people feel safe reporting for jury duty or going to vote. I am also proud to live in a community that feels it is important to serve all of its citizens, even those in jail. I think it is so important to be able to offer drug and alcohol rehab, mental-health services, money-management and job-skill classes to those who are incarcerated. I think it is important for prisoners’ families to be able to visit, which is often difficult if the prisoner is being housed in a different county. We do not have those things yet, but we will with the passage of the justice center. Please join me in being proud of our community and vote YES on Tuesday. Karla Smith Iowa City resident

Sexual assault too common By Sri Ponnada

Sexual assault can happen anywhere, anytime. UI senior Caitlin Palar was sexually assaulted right here, on this campus, in her own residence hall. But she didn’t report the assault; she really didn’t admit that she had been assaulted and kept her story secret until last week. I met Palar on April 30 at Take Back the Night, an annual march and rally organized by the Women’s Resource & Action Center that has been taking place in Iowa City since the 1970s at the end of every April. This year, dozens of women and some men gathered on the Pentacrest to support survivors of sexual violence who shared their experiences — including Palar, who told her story for the first time. Last January, Palar was with a group of people in a guy’s room. Her room was right across the hall. Eventually, she was alone with him. “Somewhere in the conversation we discovered that we both were proud owners of onesie pajamas, so I went across the hall to my room to put mine on, and when I came back he was wearing his, too,” she said. Palar’s onesie had an Eeyore print. “He then started asking me if I wanted to have sex with him,” she said. “I told him, ‘No, I just broke up with somebody,’ and that I didn’t feel like it. He kept trying to convince me, saying things like, ‘I think we’d be really sexy together, and we live right across the hall from each other, so if we have fun we can keep doing it.’ ” She kept saying no, but he asked her a couple more times. The answer was still “No.” Obviously, “no” means “no.” “He then asked if I would kiss him and I said yes that was fine. I felt comfortable enough with him that we could kiss. While we’re kissing, he started to unbutton my onesie. I pushed his hand away and re-buttoned it, and he just unbuttoned it again and tried to take off my bra. I stopped him and said, ‘I told

you it was OK to kiss me, but I didn’t say it was OK to do anything else.’ ” Palar said that he insisted on going further. Even though she lived right across the hall and noted that she could have easily gotten away, she said was intimidated and scared that he would become violent if she continued to resist. “I started to feel that maybe it’s easier to go along with it and let it happen than try to fight it,” she said, “It’s like a little boy asking over and over and over again if I will give him a cookie. And finally I’m like “Fine. Have your cookie — it’s not that big of a deal.”” He nearly persuaded Palar that it wasn’t a big deal — it was. For months, she continued to feel guilt and regret. She blamed herself for what had happened. “It wasn’t until a couple weeks ago before Take Back the Night that I read on the University of Iowa’s sexual-misconduct policy that explains what he did to me was technically sexual coercion — it was rape — and I could have gotten him in deep s*** for doing that to me,” Palar said. She is not alone. Nearly 1-in-5 women have been raped in their lifetimes, according to the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Almost 1.3 million were raped in the year preceding the survey. Between 2009 and 2010, however, fewer than half of all rapes and sexual assaults were reported. The numbers are frightening, but it’s comforting to know that some people in Iowa City have taken a stand to fight back, to lower the number of victims, and to raise awareness. Palar said she debated whether to share her story. But after seeing an article about a male University of Arizona student who protested a campus event promoting sexual-assault awareness by holding up a sign that read “You deserve rape” and “If you dress like a whore, act like a whore, you’re probably going to get raped” — she was enraged. Palar decided to answer these claims her own way; at the protest she wore the onesie she had reluctantly taken off last year and held a sign that read, “This is what I was wearing when I was sexually assaulted.”

Guest column

We should work on expanding jail alternatives first, not the jail Proponents say we should build a bigger jail to federal standards in order to be able to reduce the numbers of inmates kept there. Using the expected $3 million gained from selling the old jail, that would include more than 190 beds, which can easily expand to 243. This is illogical. We need to reduce the numbers being kept there now, and then see what size jail we need. Crime rates are falling in Iowa. Many of the persons now being kept long-term in the jail are too poor to

bond out and are being held awaiting justice; many of these are black. They have been charged, not found guilty and sentenced. Capping the time spent in jail at eight weeks for those awaiting justice for misdemeanors and 26 weeks for felonies would greatly reduce jail population. Iowa City police and University of Iowa police are responsible for the vast majority of arrests. Iowa City and Johnson County should subsidize the electronic monitoring program, like the

ankle bracelet, so that it is an affordable alternative to jailing. Currently, prisoners must be able to afford to pay $20 per day. The pretrial release program, including release with supervision, should be expanded so that those charged only with victimless crimes are not kept in jail. If more office space is needed to expand and administer jail-alternative programs, it should be rented immediately — not unavailable for approxiamately three years

while it’s being built. Drug arrests have risen disproportionately quickly; in fiscal 2012, most of them were for misdemeanor marijuana charges: possession, drug paraphernalia, failure to affix drug stamp, gathering for use of marijuana. In fiscal 2012, 612 people arrested for drugs were jailed for from one week to over 30 days. These are victimless crimes. Marijuana is the illegal drug most commonly used locally by all levels of society. Let’s accept the slo-

gan of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws (NORML): “It’s normal to smoke marijuana.” The Edward Byrne Grant provides a cash incentive for the local drug task force to aggressively pursue marijuana; the grant application must list the numbers of arrests and amounts seized — down to the least flake. The city could pass an ordinance decriminalizing it by making possession an offense punishable by a citation and small fine, only. The county attorney could stop prosecut-

ing marijuana offenses, so that law enforcement doesn’t bother with those charges. Besides reducing jail population, the benefits of the measures listed here would include improvement in police-community relations and a reduction in racial disparities. Let’s change what we’re doing before we throw money into steel and concrete “to federal standards” (so we can fill those empty beds with federal prisoners?).

News certificate Continued from front er’s constant presence over fears that the other mother may be shut out of critical decisions. “The birth mother had to keep watch on her bedside 24 hours a day, because they were concerned the other parent wouldn’t be authorized for medical treatment,” said Taylor, who is also Marriage Project Director in Lambda Legal’s Midwest Regional Office based in Chicago. “The birth mother had her job security threatened, and it was just a really stressful time that they really shouldn’t have had to go through.” Before the ruling, same-sex couples were forced go through an adoption process to get names of both parents on the birth certificate. Heal and Maggie McKnight, a local couple, went through a $3,000 process to get listed on their daughter Theo’s “T-bone” birth certificate. “…Getting a lawyer for [their daughter] and doing a lot of legal paper work is really not the thing you want to do when you just had a kid,” Heal McKnight said. “It was a big intrusion at a time when you’re just learning how to be a family. There are so many things to figure out, like just making sure you are getting the diapers on right.” The 29-page decision was also a unanimous decision for the Iowa Supreme Court justices, which follows the same lines of Varnum v. Brien. That case three years ago made Iowa the third state in the country to legalize marriage equality. “This is a great step forward, and I am really proud that even with the new justices on the court this is still a unanimous ruling,” said Kate Varnum, one of the lead plaintiffs of the Varnum case. “The [Iowa] Supreme Court values all families, and they recognized this is really the only way it could go if all marriages are treated equally.” Varnum added she hopes Iowans “would not put children in the for more news

Case Timeline On May 3, the Iowa Supreme Court expanded its Varnum v. Brien ruling to require the Department of Public Health to include names of both same-sex parents on birth certificates. • May 2010: Heather and Melissa Gartner case filed in Polk County • January 2012: District court orders state to provide accurate birth certificates • May 2013: Iowa Supreme Court backs lower court’s decision Source: Lambda Legal

crossfire,” echoing Taylor’s sentiments that the May 3 case would not lead to the same backlash Iowa saw in 2009, which led to three justices failing to be confirmed a year later. The Iowa Family Leader, which led the efforts to oust the justices both in 2010 and tried unsuccessfully to get rid of Wiggins in 2012, declined to comment on the ruling. According to its website, the Family Leader believes marriage is a permanent, lifelong commitment between a man and a woman and strongly supports efforts to keep judicial activism in check. The Iowa decision also comes in the same week the U.S. Department of Education changed the 2014-2015 FAFSA to allow applicants to describe parents’ marital status as “unmarried and both parents’ living together” along with removing gender specific terms like mother and father. An official with One Iowa — an organization focused on “fighting for full LGBT equality” — said the case “turned a big corner” for Iowa families, but believes there are still unresolved issues in the state. “… Looking toward the future, we have some of the harshest HIV criminalization laws on the book,” said Matty Smith, the communications director for One Iowa. “We have made some progress this year, but we want to continue to work to move forward that issue.”

BISHOP Continued from front article published on April 4. Kenneth Kuntz, a University of Iowa religious-studies professor emeritus, said the issues raised by the speakers were being addressed around the country and that churches had different ways of interpreting the Bible on homosexuality and gay marriage. “Some mainline churches use a lectionary, with passages from the Old and the New Testament,” he said. “Some ignore the text and use commentaries on the Bible.” Some have argued that certain passages of the Bible support opposition of homosexuality or same-

sex marriage, but Robinson disagrees with that interpretation. Robinson said words in the Bible had to be interpreted with the right context in mind, giving the example of baseball to someone in the year 3000. “Our context changes; it’s culturally bound,” he said. “Without the context of baseball, the phrase ‘out in left field’ loses its meaning completely. We have to understand the context before we can understand those words.” Robinson said the concept of sexual orientation was unknown in the ancient world and that the act of having homosexual relations was seen as going against one’s nature. “You can’t take a modern-day concept and plug it into an ancient text,” he said.

Gene Robinson, IX Bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church, speaks at the Congregational Church on May 4. (The Daily Iowan/Juan Carlos Herrera) Kuntz believes the path for acceptance of same-sex marriage lies with the new generation. “I don’t feel every old person is conservative [on gay marriage], but as we go further into the century, you see people under 20 or 30 say, ‘What’s the big

deal?’ ” he said. “As these people become 30, 40, their views are not going to change.” Rowe also thought youth were more open to gay marriage. “The young people get it, sometimes more than we do,” she said.

Is Floyd Mayweather good for the sport of boxing? No

ing arguably the best fighter in the world serving jail time for beating a defenseless woman does nothing to dispel the stereotype that all boxers are overly aggressive, violent thugs who make a living out of exploiting their violent tendencies. However, the knocks against Mayweather go beyond his legal troubles. According to an interview with his former girlfriend, he apparently had a major gambling problem, often making $250,000 bets on the half-time scores of NFL games with famous rapper and close friend 50 Cent. In the same interview, Mayweather’s girlfriend also criticized him for associating with some less than reputable characters, who she claims ended up breaking into their house and robbing them one night. While many argue that the private lives of professional athletes should be kept separate from their athletic accomplishments, when it becomes a distraction and a black mark for

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is an undefeated, 44-0 world champion boxer who holds titles in five weight classes. Usually, any fighter who can claim that title is a sports marketer’s dream and does wonders for the sport of boxing. However, such is not the case with Pretty Boy Floyd. That is due largely in part to the fact that his most famous knockout of his career came against his former girl friend, Josie Harris, in 2010, for which he served an 87day jail sentence for domestic abuse. Generally, any time one of the best fighters in the sport is out of action for more than a year because he is serving out a jail sentence for beating a woman to the point where she develops a Stage-1 concussion is not exactly the positive publicity that the boxing world needs. Boxing is considered by many to be a dying sport. Violent by nature, it has failed to regain the massive popularity it enjoyed throughout the 1960s and ’70s, and hav-

She pitched 14 innings and allowed just 9 hits. Massey also added two hits in the Sunday contest.

The past two games, I wasn’t hitting that well, so it’s nice to come out early with a hot bat.” Sophomore shortstop Megan Blank struggled a bit over the weekend, garnering four hits in 13 plate appearances without recording an RBI. Her performance dropped her season batting average to .436. Even though Blank didn’t have the performance she’s used to this season, she said the series

a spotless record in all his bouts. There’s talk that Mayweather is a poor role model, with his recently spending time in jail, and he is notorious for placing hundreds of thousands of dollars on sports bets. But in this day and age, it’s hard to find an athlete that fits the cookie-cutter mold of people to look up to who isn’t named Tim Tebow. Saying Mayweather isn’t good for boxing is like saying Tiger Woods is bad for golf or Peyton Manning bad for football. Mayweather promotes his sport in the absolute best way possible: by winning. The May 4 fight raked in at least $32 million for Mayweather, matching the most money ever earned in a bout, a mark set by Mayweather in his last fight, a bout against Miguel Cotto a year ago. In fact, he was the highest-paid athlete in the world last year, earning more than $85 million in winnings, sponsorship

Yes At the ripe age of 36, Floyd Mayweather proved to whatever boxing fans there are left in the world that he is, in fact, the best there is in a sport that is desperately in search for new fans and supporters in the wake of the popularity of mixed martial arts. On the evening of May 4, Mayweather earned his 21st boxing championship belt — this one in the welterweight division against Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero. The win was his 44th in a row, giving Mayweather

contracts, and shares from pay-per-view profits. People say that boxing is tough for casual fans to get into, because they have to order a pricy package through their cable providers to watch a fight that could, in theory, end in one punch. That might be believable if networks weren’t salivating over the rights to carry a fight — Showtime/CBS recently acquired the rights to air all Mayweather fights after he had been with HBO — and the May 4 bout fetched the most expensive price for homeowners looking to order

the matchup to date, a cool $69.99. The pay-per-view numbers aren’t in yet, but it’s likely the Mayweather-Guerrero fight generated the most money from a boxing match of all time. The sports world is run by money; Mayweather is just changing the equation. Instead of boxing generating money because of its overall popularity, as with football or nearly every other sport, Mayweather generates money for boxing by just being Mayweather. — by Ben Ross

The Prime Time League will return to the Iowa City area, providing a platform for basketball players from to play and continue to hone their skills during the summer months. This year will be the 27th installment of the league, which consists of six teams. Under NCAA rules, each team is only allowed to feature two scholarship players that are on the same college squad. Including incoming freshman Peter Jok, Iowa will have more scholarship players on its roster than spots in the summer league. Iowa forward Melsahn Basabe will spend the summer in his home state of New York, and guard Devyn Marble might not compete in the league depending on whether he is selected for a number of summer all-star teams. Each year, organizers hold a draft to select the teams that will compete in the league. Normally, players from Northern Iowa participate in the league, but for the second-straight year, coaches at UNI have decided to bar their players from the league, citing a new rule instituted by the NCAA that allows four practices a week during the off-season, curbing the need to have players compete in such off-season leagues.

Prime Time League founder and cole Smith, and Kali Peschel are all Commissioner Randy Larson said he expected to play. The women’s squad was ranked as is excited about the upcoming season, and the Hawkeyes’ 25 wins this past high as 23rd in the nation last season basketball season and a trip to Mad- and was able to win one game in the ison Square Garden in New York for postseason of the NCAA Tournament.

The Iowa track and field squads were scheduled to compete May 3 in the Messersmith Invitational at Northern Iowa. The meet was canceled because of inclement weather in Cedar Falls. This meet was slated as a tune-up before the Big Ten championships, which will take place May 10-12 in Columbus, Ohio. Head coach Layne Anderson and his women’s team will attempt to have a better performance at the outdoor meet than they did in the indoor championships in February. The team finished in 11th out of 11 teams at the meet and crowned no individual champions. The men’s squad had a better finish than the women — it took seventh place in the meet, and senior Jordan Mullen captured first place in the 60-meter hurdles. However, there is reason to be optimistic for the Hawks, especially senior Majesty Tutson, who was the Hawkeyes’ lone first-place finisher in the Drake Relays on April 25-27. Tutson’s throw gave assistant coach Scott Cappos reason to believe Tutson will finish near the top of the Big Ten standings. “This is setting her up for success at major events; she will be one of the top throwers at the Big Ten championships,” Cappos said in release. Numerous members of the Black and Gold finished very close to the top of events in the extremely competitive field, despite the lack of first-place finishes in Des Moines. Sophomore Gabe Hull (men’s discus) and junior Adrianne Alexia (women’s 800 meters) each won second place.

The Iowa softball team heads to the Big Ten Tournament riding a five-game winning streak.

The Iowa softball team stayed hot over the weekend, concluding its regular season by winning five games in a row and six of its last eight. The five-game winning streak matches a season high for Iowa. Iowa swept the three-game set against Purdue this past weekend with an 8-2 victory on Sunday. The win came after Iowa won the first two games of the series — 2-0 on May 3 and 4-3 on May 4. Both of the earlier games went into extra innings, where Iowa is now 4-0 this season. The series sweep over the Boilermakers also gives the team momentum heading into the Big Ten Tournament Thursday, something head coach Mar-

Not very much separated the Iowa and Michigan baseball teams in a weekend Big Ten series. All three of the games in Ann Arbor were decided by 1 run, but more often than not, the Wolverines came through in the clutch and took two out of the three games. After five innings in the first game on May 3, Iowa trailed 5-1. The club began a comeback thanks to an RBI single by sophomore Anthony Torres in the top of the sixth that cut the lead to 3. Sophomore Jake Yacinich brought the score to 5-4 with a two-run double in the seventh. The Hawkeyes had runners on second and third with two outs in the ninth, but junior Trevor Kenyon struck out to end the game. “We played better baseball,” Iowa baseball coach Jack Dahm said. “We played harder, and we had a lot of opportunities on offense. It was a tough loss.” Iowa needed another comeback to edge the Wolverines in game two on May 4. Michigan again took the first lead with a run in the fourth and 2 in the sixth for a 3-0 advantage. Sophomore Kris Goodman stroked a two-run single in the seventh to make the score 3-2 Michigan, and Bryan Niedbalski hit an RBI single in the eighth to tie the game. It was Niedbalski’s first hit and RBI of the season. The score remained knotted at 3 until the top of the 12th when Niedbalski came up with the bases loaded. The junior came through again with a sacrifice fly that gave the team the lead and eventually the 4-3 win. “Bryan had a very good weekend,” Dahm said. “He hasn’t gotten very many opportunities to play this weekend, but he took advantage of his chances this weekend. It was good to see. He came through with some big hits.” In game three, Iowa took the first lead of the game with 3 runs in the fifth. Sophomore Eric Toole got a bunt single to drive in the first run of the game. Goodman followed with a 2-run double. Michigan struck back with 2 runs in the seventh to make the score 3-2, then took the lead on a 2-run home run off sophomore pitcher Nick Hibbing. The Black and Gold failed to muster a come-
