Forbes, chancellor unveil new BEC

University researchers publish study on new, shorter cricket format

Paul Braun

Contributing Writer

Instead of a roaring crowd, cricketers are sometimes applauded by the chirping of their insect counterparts. Attendance for the cricket games is decreasing, but a team of researchers in the Department of Economics may have moved the cricket community one step closer to changing that trend. Economics professor Sudipta Sarangi and former Ph.D. students Bibhudutta Panda and Colin Cannonier co-authored an article that ran in “Business Line,” India’s most popular business daily, answering cricket purists’ doubts about a new format of the game. The game’s new variant is called Twenty20 cricket, commonly abbreviated as T20. Game duration is the only technical difference between T20 and other variants, such as One Day International (ODI) cricket and test cricket. T20 matches typically last two-and-a-half hours, whereas ODI matches take a whole day to

complete and test matches can span five days. Cricket is known as a traditionladen sport, but decreasing match attendance and a failure to capitalize on television profits have prompted this most recent and drastic shift in the game. Sarangi said

Students buy, sell notes online Notehall website causes controversy Emily Herrington Staff Writer

University students have been increasingly using as a class resource and means to earn extra money. Notehall, owned by the textbook rental company Chegg, allows students across the country to buy and sell lecture notes and study guides for specific classes at their universities. Notehall reaches more than 200 schools, including LSU. Chegg communications

manager Angela Pontarolo said in an e-mail that all students are welcome to apply to be note-takers and are hired after an interview process with a Notehall representative. Note-takers earn a base payment of $50 to $200 plus commission for selling their notes, Pontarolo said. Students can purchase notes by buying credits from Notehall. Pontarolo said 100 credits cost $5 to $6.95, depending on the location of the buyer. Study guides cost 100 credits, while individual lecture notes cost 25 credits. Samantha Clement, mass communication sophomore, began working as a Notehall note-taker in the middle of the fall 2011 semester, and she said she earned about $200.

In order to receive the base payment, at least 30 percent of the class must purchase a study guide, Clement said. Clement said about 20 to 30 students bought study guides for the two exams she offered to her 150-person class. She reached her classmates to advertise her notes using Moodle email. “The goal is to help other students out,” Clement said. Getting hired as a note-taker was a relatively easy process, Clement said. She submitted her class schedule and class sizes online and was called for a phone interview shortly after.

Shooting outside Arizona club leaves 14 wounded, three gunmen arrested

Former St. Gabriel mayor guilty in FBI sting, charged of seven felonies

BRAZZAVILLE, Republic of Congo (AP) — Houses and buildings collapsed in the Congolese capital Sunday, entombing inhabitants after an arms depot exploded, killing at least 206 people, officials said, including dozens attending Mass in a church that buckled under the force of the blast. The shock waves shattered windows in a three-mile radius surrounding the arms depot. “It’s like a tsunami passed through here,” said Christine Ibata, a student. Putin claims victory in Russia’s presidential vote despite fraud pleas

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Hundreds waiting outside an Arizona nightclub for a hip-hop show fled in panic as shooting erupted involving three gunmen, leaving at least 14 people wounded. Police arrested one suspect and were hunting two others. “People were running in all different directions, and some people were trying to force their way into the bar to get away,” police spokesman Lt. Mike Horn said. “It was incredibly chaotic, and understandably so. Again, we’re just fortunate that no one was killed.”

(AP) — Former St. Gabriel mayor George Grace has been jailed after his conviction on racketeering and other charges resulting from an FBI sting called “Operation Blighted Officials.” Prosecutors said he might flee to Uganda, where he owns land, before his sentencing July 2. Grace was convicted Saturday evening on seven of 13 felony charges, including bribery, fraud and obstruction of justice. Grace is the sixth Baton Rougearea official convicted in the sting.

MOSCOW (AP) — Vladimir Putin claimed victory in Russia’s presidential election before tens of thousands of cheering supporters Sunday, even as the opposition and independent observers insisted the vote had been marred by widespread fraud. At a massive rally just outside the Kremlin, Putin thanked his supporters for helping foil plots aimed at destroying Russia, sounding a nationalistic theme that has resonated with the prime minister’s core supporters amid a wave of unprecedented protests.

Worst train tragedy in Poland in more than 20 years kills 16, injures 58 SZCZECHOCINY, Poland (AP) — Two trains running on the same track collided head-on in southern Poland in sparks, killing 16 people and injuring 58 in the country’s worst train disaster in more than 20 years. The crash near Krakow turned cars at the front of each train into heaps of mangled metal and toppled others on their sides. Neighbors in Szczechociny alerted by what they said sounded like a bomb rushed to the scene to smash open windows, and survivors emerged in shock.


Same-sex custody battle could change Florida law, fuel debates TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A custody battle in Florida between two lesbians could fuel the growing national debate over the definition of motherhood. It also might force state lawmakers to reconsider a 19-yearold law regarding the rights of sperm and egg donors. The women, now in their 30s and known in court papers only by their initials, were both law enforcement officers in Florida. One partner donated an egg that was fertilized and implanted in the other. That woman gave birth in 2004, nine years into their relationship.

SHREVEPORT (AP) — The City Council has sharply raised fines for residents who park vehicles in their yards. Under action approved this past week, violators could be fined at least $100. The current law is not specific to yard parking. Officers issue the same ticket of $15 fine for illegal parking anywhere in the city. The law goes into effect June 1. A first-time offense nets a $100 fine.

Local boutiques showcase spring styles at F.A.M.E. show Claire Caillier Contributing Writer

Models clad in vibrant clothing with a slight ‘60s inspiration sashayed down the runway to a pulsing beat during the F.A.M.E. Spring Fashion Show at The Office on Friday night. F.A.M.E. — Fashion, Arts, Music and Entertainment — seeks to bring something different to the city’s nightlife, according to Danny Breaux, second-year MBA student and founder of Wildflower Presents, who put on the show. “The fashion shows help promote local boutiques, and they bring people together to do something different than the usual club/ bar scene in Baton Rouge,” Breaux said. One male model donning pink seersucker shorts with a blue plaid shirt danced down the runway, while a member of the audience “made it rain” by throwing dollar bills at models strutting along the catwalk. Local boutiques Aristocracy and Tomato provided the fashions

featured in the show, Breaux said. Wildflower Presents combines all components of F.A.M.E. to provide a unique experience for the Baton Rouge community, Breaux said. “We want to blend the elements of F.A.M.E. together to make our events accessible to different people,” Breaux said. Many of the models showcased were University students, according to Olivia Doize, backstage manager of the affair and a textiles, merchandising and apparel senior. “I try to recruit a lot of LSU fashion students in our fashion shows to give them a chance to network with the boutiques and other models,” Doize said. Doize said her goal is to make the fashion shows the best they can be. “I want it to be as close to a New York fashion show as possible,” Doize said. The fashion shows cater to students and young professionals, according to Doize. “It is something special that they do not do every night,” Doize

said. “We provide culture to our guests.” Doize said this has been her favorite fashion show since she has been involved. “We never really experience a winter, so it’s exciting to get a taste of what spring styles local stores are offering,” Doize said. Dietetics senior Ashton Martin, who attended the show, said the best part was the models’ personalities. “It featured boutiques that I never heard of, so it was nice to see what types of styles were highlighted for the spring season,” Martin said. “I liked the different models that they had since they all had their different type of on-stage personality.” But Martin said the time of the show wasn’t communicated effectively. “We arrived a whole two hours early,” Martin said. “It was also short. I wished I could have seen more styles.” Contact Claire Caillier at

More than 200 LSU law students got their paws dirty — literally — on Friday during Paws for a Cause, an annual day of service sponsored by the Paul M. Hebert Law Center’s Public Interest Law Society and the Student Bar Association. Students and faculty devoted their efforts to organizations including Habitat for Humanity, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the Capital Area Family Violence Intervention Center. Quentin Anderson, a secondyear law student, volunteered at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Baton Rouge, helping to lift and organize building supplies. Anderson said Paws for a Cause is a tradition, even though service events of its kind have only been around for five years at the Law Center. “Everyone knows that when spring comes around, Paws for a Cause will be coming soon,” Anderson said. The Public Interest Law Society is directly funded by the Law Center. Since its founding in 2005, PILS has grown to include three operating branches: community service, pro bono legal work, and career placement and student fellowships. John Devlin, LSU law professor and PILS faculty advisor, said Paws for a Cause is part of the organization’s effort to give back to the surrounding Baton Rouge community. PILS has participated in

semiannual community service projects since 2007. The Student Bar Association teamed up with PILS last year to expand the spring service event and to encourage more students to get involved, Devlin said. Thus, Paws for a Cause was founded. All law students and professors were encouraged to take part in the day of service and volunteer at one of the 18 participating organizations. “We were asked to advertise the event to our classes and were also asked to show up ourselves,” said Bill Corbett, LSU law professor. Hesitant to take any credit for the student-planned day of service, Devlin said that the students do all of the work to put this large-scale event together. “This is all them,” Devlin said. For some students, like Anderson, Paws for a Cause is essential to learn more about their future careers. “The law profession is about service,” Anderson said. “Community service and Paws for a Cause is an extension of that.” Jordan Stone, a second-year law student who was a key planner of Paws for a Cause this year, agreed with Anderson. “It is important for us to give back to the communities that we will ultimately serve,” Stone said.

LSU Press has published a new historical account of a combat unit that loyally fought in the Confederate Army of Tennessee despite the inevitable loss that was to come. The book, “Granbury’s Texas Brigade,” is named after the brigade’s commanding officer, Brigadier General Hiram B. Granbury, and is written by John R. Lundberg, a history professor at Collin College in Plano, Texas. Lundberg used “letters, diaries and regimental documents” to provide the perspectives of the soldiers throughout the battle, according to a news release. According to Lundberg, Granbury’s leadership “led to the group’s overall high morale,” the news release said. The soldiers didn’t give up until the “final surrender.” Lundberg wrote about how the men displayed their love of the Confederacy in varying ways after the war. “‘Granbury’s Texas Brigade’ presents military history at its best, revealing a microcosm of the Confederate war effort and aiding our understanding of the reason men felt compelled to fight in America’s greatest tragedy,” the news release said.

The earliest days of Louisiana will soon be on display in Hill Memorial Library. Beginning March 12, LSU Libraries Special Collections presents “State of Transition: Louisiana Circa 1812,” on display at Hill Memorial until June 2. The exhibit is presented in honor of the bicentennial of Louisiana’s admission to the Union as the 18th state. The collection recognizes the transition of Louisiana from a territory to a state and details the daily life of Louisiana citizens in the early 19th century. “In addition to these topics, the exhibit examines the at times rancorous political process through which Louisiana attained statehood, established its government and became ‘American,’ the War

of 1812 and the unique role Louisiana played in the conflict and institutions such as slavery and religion that made up the fabric of Louisianians’ daily experiences,” according to a news release. Notable items include a letter written by Andrew Jackson to his wife while on his way to the Battle of New Orleans and documents on the 1811 slave revolt, according to the news release. Models of homes from the Antebellum era and artifacts from the LSU Textile and Costume Museum will also be featured. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Hill Memorial Library is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.

High school students encouraged Professor appointed to pursue leadership roles at retreat to Volunteer Health Corps advisory board Danielle Kelley Staff Writer

High school students from across the state learned what it means to be a leader Saturday at the second annual Flagship Showcase, hosted by Student Government and Freshman Leadership Council. Just under 100 high school students from about 20 high schools attended multiple leadership development sessions to discover why they lead, how to handle conflict and how to transition from high school to college, according to Alli Robison, SG director of First Year Experience. “Knowing that conflict in high school is a lot different from conflict in college [is important],” Robison said. “Change is inevitable in that sense, from high school to college.” Denham Springs High School sophomore Bryce Richard said he learned a lot about leadership to bring back to his school. “Leadership isn’t just a role. It’s not for yourself,” he said. “You take a leadership role to help others.” LSU Ambassadors also gave the students a tour. Logansport High School junior Macie Mosley said the tour was her favorite part of the day. “I liked the campus tour because we got to walk around and see everything,” she said. Mosley said she especially enjoyed seeing Mike the Tiger and the echo circle in Free Speech Plaza. Each high school group was accompanied by an adviser, who attended adviser sessions while the students participated in leadership sessions.

College of Agriculture SG senator Robert Bossick, right, tells visiting high school students about the Indian Mounds on Friday during a high school retreat held on campus.

Angela Raymond, sponsor of Logansport High School’s Student Government, said the tour eased her students’ fears of coming to a campus as large as the University. “They’re now feeling better supported now that they know more about campus,” she said. “They’re more reassured. Coming from a small town, those are some fears you have with a campus this size.” Raymond said she learned techniques in her sessions to calm parents’ nerves about sending their students to the University. Denham Springs High School sophomore Carmen Coon said she will now begin to consider the University among her college choices. “I really liked talking to the people who actually go to school here to get a first-person perspective,” she said. “I really like this school. It’s got a bunch of things to offer.” The high school students were

broken into small groups and decided on a group name and chant. Bryce Simon, a kinesiology freshman who was wearing a T-shirt adorned with exotic animals, was one of the leaders of the “Zoo Crew.” “[My] favorite thing to do today was interacting with the group,” he said. “It was fun to see their reaction ... to make the transition from high school to college.” Joaquin (Texas) High School junior Cody Causey said the retreat influenced his decision about where to attend college. “The people are just so friendly. It feels like somewhere I’d fit in. I’m relaxed,” he said. No student fees were spent on the Flagship Showcase since LSU Dining has sponsored the event every year, according to Robison.

E.J. Ourso College of Business Professor Fran Lawrence was recently appointed to the advisory board of the Volunteer Health Corps., according to a news release. “I like being the business voice, and I enjoy the camaraderie outside of my typical acaLawrence demic world,” Lawrence said of her new position. Lawrence, a communication studies professor in the finance department, has been a VHC charter member for five years and has served as treasurer. She said she was “happy to do it” when offered the board position. The release said that although

the organization is still working to define the board’s purpose, “its main goal is to retain and engage critical members rotating off the board.” The VHC is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization that links the private medical community with the public health sector, the release said. Its goal is to minimize delays in treatment and the use of emergency rooms. “VHC provides a critical resource to both the hospitals, as well as the indigent. The physicians relish the opportunity to do mission work in their own backyard, and board meetings are always celebratory,” Lawrence said in the release. The VHC maintains a partnership with the University in which it shares the LSU Health System’s clinic space. “This partnership works to build a healthier community through access to health care for all,” the release said.

the making. The BEC is a standalone structure specifically for the E.J. Ourso College of Business. The business college currently shares Patrick F. Taylor Hall with the College of Engineering but will begin offering classes in the BEC this fall. Keynote speaker Steve Forbes, chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media, emphasized the value of human ingenuity. Because the project was funded during tough economic times, Forbes said the opening illustrates the University’s priorities. “You recognize the importance of the mind, not resources. Minds make resources,” Forbes said. “And this is a good day for Louisiana — not just for LSU, for Louisiana. The mind is supreme. We’re going to develop it.” Forbes said the BEC’s completion sends a message to outsiders

“They mainly want to know if you’re reliable and you’re a hard worker and you take good notes,” she said. While Notehall is marketed as a tool for students to help other students, some have questioned the ethics of using the site. Notehall is banned on the campus of California State University, Chico, because it is illegal to sell notes in California, according to The Orion, the school’s student newspaper. The Orion reported selling notes is illegal because the material is the intellectual property of professors, and selling that material breaches copyright laws. “We strive to fulfill our mission of bringing classmates together in a

that Louisiana is a place for flourishing business. “The opening tells the world that, as never before, LSU is open for business,” Forbes said. The BEC was the cornerstone project of the Forever LSU campaign, which collected more than $750 million from private donors — a feat previously thought to be laughable and unfathomable, former Chancellor Sean O’Keefe said at the ceremony. But despite the huge donations collected, the facility’s funding is not yet complete. Bill Slaughter, president of SSA Consultants and co-chairman of the LSU Business Building Oversight Committee, said about $7.5 million is still needed to finish the job. Slaughter is requesting additional donations, and a list of “naming opportunities” is offered inside the auditorium building. The BEC can be named after a donor who contributes $15 million, virtual setting in hopes of enhancing the overall academic success of college students nationwide,” reads Notehall’s website. Matt Gregory, associate dean of students and director of Student Advocacy and Accountability, said determining ownership of intellectual property is an important dialogue that needs to happen at the University. “We need to determine if the notes out there on Notehall and Noteswap are intellectual property, and if they are, of whom?” Gregory said. Pontarolo said Notehall seeks to respect the wishes of academic authority figures, and students may only post their interpretations of class materials. “If the professor is not comfortable with this, the notes can be

Ourso College of Business Dean Eli Jones emceed the event, and though he will no longer be affiliated with the University because of his new position at the University of Arkansas, he said it’s time to bring new faculty to “complete the job.” Jones did not address his move to Arkansas, though Commissioner of Administration Paul Rainwater broke the ice with a jab about the LSU/Arkansas football rivalry. Finance sophomore Nick Geymann said he’s “a little concerned” about Jones’ untimely departure, but he hopes for the swift arrival of another involved, qualified dean. Geymann said the BEC’s modern design is amazing, and he’s looking forward to moving out of the shared space of Patrick F. Taylor Hall.

Gregory said the University does not have a policy against posting or selling notes online, but PS107 of the Student Code of Conduct states that students may not use University resources for monetary gain. This includes using Moodle and University e-mail addresses, Gregory said. The consequences of a particular incident would vary from case to case, but Gregory said a first offense would not incur severe penalties — it would just be an opportunity to educate students on the policy and help them make better choices in the future.

the idea for this research project was born out of a lunchtime conversation about fast-paced cricket and the glamour of the Indian Premier League. “We started asking, is there any difference between these two games? Because everyone seems to say that T20 is driven by batting performance,” Sarangi said. “It is so short that nothing else seems to matter. It is a very fast game driven by batting and entertainment. We said, ‘Maybe we can actually figure this out.’” Through the statistical analysis of 471 ODI and T20 matches between 2008 and 2009, the research groups found the strategy required to win a T20 match is the same needed to win an ODI match. This is the latest in a growing body of evidence supporting the need to adopt T20 as the norm. Cannonier is a first-class cricketer himself. He has represented St. Kitts on its national team since he was 15 years old. Though he hasn’t formally

retired from cricket, he is now teaching at Belmont University and his opportunities to play are very limited. He hasn’t played professionally since 2008. Cannonier has had experience playing all formats of cricket, mostly ODI and test matches. He described his experience with longer formats as “taxing.” Matches took half the day on Saturdays and lasted from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. “My devotion initially was to the longer form,” Cannonier said. As the shorter games of the Indian Premier League flourish with high attendance, American-style cheerleaders, colorful uniforms and franchises owned by Bollywood film stars, Cannonier said there is an opportunity for the game to expand to the United States. “The chances of [cricket coming to the U.S.] are much greater with the advent of T20,” Cannonier said. “You can see the similarity in duration to baseball. Playing times are friendly for people to watch. People can devote leisure time to it.”

The Daily Reveille Sarangi said the audiencefriendly viewing times T20 offers are crucial to the growth of the sport. “If you are trying to get people to pick up a new sport, and you need them to miss work to watch it, it is not going to happen.” Usman Cheema, civil engineering senior and captain of Metairie Cricket Club, said he sees T20 as a batsman’s showcase and the best development in cricket. “It is pretty exciting because in T20 you have to change everything,” Cheema said. “In ODI you have to plan each inning. In T20 it is all about getting the bat on the ball.” Metairie Cricket Club is one of five teams in the greater New Orleans area that play weekly, Cheema said. Cheema said his team is comprised mostly of LSU and University of New Orleans students, and they play a makeshift format shortened to 30 or 25 overs, similar to an inning in baseball. He said the happy medium of their format takes less time than an ODI but still allows them to play a strategically complete match that lasts all afternoon.

Monday, March 5, 2012 When Cheema first came to the University in 2009, he said he and his friends would play informal matches on a makeshift field with a tennis ball. The games were reminiscent of the ones played in the streets of his native Pakistan, he said. Sarangi said he hasn’t played anything more than an impromptu game of cricket since completing grade school, and his experience with T20 has been purely professional. Sarangi said he’s not sure whether the switch is a good or bad step in the evolution of the game. He is not advocating the switch. “What I can say is that it is happening. You cannot stop it,” Sarangi said. “I do not know if I will enjoy T20. I have not had the chance to watch a whole game of T20 with the halftime and the entertainment, so I do not know. But it seems that this is the way things are going.” CATHERINE THRELKELD / The Daily Reveille

Tennessee led, 45-41, when Barrett was injured, and junior guard Adrienne Webb hit a 3-pointer shortly after the injury to cut the lead to one. But the Lady Tigers would go more than five minutes without scoring after Webb’s shot, allowing the Lady Vols to push their lead to 10 points. Webb connected on another 3-pointer to bring LSU back into the game. She led LSU with 16 points in the contest.

It seems like yesterday the LSU football team was getting throttled by Alabama, 21-0, in the BCS National Championship on Jan. 9. Fifty-three days, to be exact, passed before the Tigers laced up their cleats and took the practice field for spring football on Friday. The spring will give LSU a chance to forget about the past and focus on the future. Had the Tigers defeated the Crimson Tide, they would have an excellent chance to win back-toback national championships. LSU coach Les Miles will return 15 starters from last year’s team, and junior quarterback Zach Mettenberger will take the reins as the Tigers’ starting quarterback. The 2012 LSU Tigers possess more overall talent than last season’s team. The puzzle that coach Miles will have to solve is whether he can discover a few missing pieces to once again make this team a dominant, cohesive unit. I’m anxious to see how new leaders, coaches and starting quarterback will influence how well LSU fares in 2012.

Lady Vols top LSU for third-straight SEC title Luke Johnson Sports Writer

The LSU women’s basketball team made an impressive run in the Southeastern Conference tournament but was undone Sunday night by a familiar nemesis in the championship game, as Tennessee pulled away late, 70-58, in Nashville, Tenn. It was Tennessee’s third consecutive SEC

Tournament title and the 16th in school history. LSU has lost to the Lady Vols the last three times it has made it to the SEC Tournament championship game. “They’re very disappointed,” said LSU assistant coach Tony Perotti in a postgame radio interview. “They did put it all out there ... they just came up a little bit short today.” LSU played the final 14 minutes without AllSEC forward LaSondra Barrett, who was carted from the court and taken to Vanderbilt Medical Center after she took a knee to the head. Barrett fell on the floor and was trying to get up when a Tennessee player’s knee hit her in the head as she ran past. Barrett lost consciousness


Nola, Katz, Rhymes lead Tigers in sweep of Dartmouth Luke Johnson Sports Writer

CONNOR TARTER / The Daily Reveille

Sophomore Ryan Eades pitches Saturday in the Tigers’ 16-3 blowout against the Dartmouth Big Green.

The No. 14 Tigers swept their weekend series with Dartmouth, winning in just about every possible way. There was Friday night, when the Tigers (10-2) rallied from a 4-3 deficit to win comfortably, 8-4. There was Saturday’s 16-3 blowout, in which 20 players participated. Then there was Sunday’s 5-4 nailbiter with a bizarre ending. Dartmouth (0-3) proved to be a resilient team, refusing to go down after LSU opened an early 3-0 lead on Sunday. The Big Green stormed back, and with the game tied at four the Tigers needed to score in the bottom of the ninth to prevent extra innings. After two quick outs, senior shortstop Austin Nola singled, setting the stage for senior third

baseman Tyler Hanover to be the hero. His eyes lit up when he saw a good pitch to drive, and he took a hack at it and popped it up to midcenter field. “I was a little frustrated,” Hanover said. “I felt like I put a good swing on it, but I kind of got under it.” But with nothing in the sky but a ball and a bright, blazing sun, Dartmouth centerfielder Jake Carlson, who entered the game in the eighth inning as a pinch hitter, lost the ball and let it bounce out of his glove. Nola raced around to score from first base, giving LSU its first walk-off win of the season. The fact that Nola was running hard on an easy fly ball to center with two outs wasn’t lost on LSU coach Paul Mainieri. “[Nola] has been around the

game long enough to know that you never take anything for granted,” Mainieri said. “There was no question in my mind that he’d be running hard.” Nola, junior first baseman Mason Katz and junior outfielder Raph Rhymes led the way for LSU, and to say they have been hot lately is a bit of a misnomer. They’ve been sizzling. The three mashed their way through Dartmouth’s pitching staff this weekend, paving the way to a sweep of the Ivy League school that was playing for the first time this season. Katz stole the show most of the weekend by falling just one shy of tying the NCAA record for consecutive plate appearances reached safely with 17. The Harahan native’s batting BASEBALL, see page 15

The LSU softball team managed one victory in four chances over the weekend in Oklahoma, falling to 10-7 on the season. On Friday, junior Oklahoma pitcher Keilani Ricketts shut down the Tigers for seven innings in the circle and blasted a first-inning solo home run to pace the Sooners en route to a 7-0 victory. “In my opinion, [Ricketts] is the best player in the country,” said LSU softball coach Beth Torina said. “There’s a good reason for it, and we saw that tonight.” LSU senior outfielder Ashley Langoni spoiled Rickett’s perfect-game bid in the seventh inning on an infield single to the shortstop. Senior pitcher Brittany Mack surrendered a career-high seven runs in the loss, the Tigers’ first in seven contests. LSU got back in the win column Saturday morning with a 7-4 victory over No. 22 Oklahoma State (8-9), behind a twofor-two, three-RBI performance from freshman third baseman Kailey McCasland.

McCasland opened the scoring in the second inning with a two-run double and added her career-high third RBI on a solo home run in the fifth frame. Mack got the start and pitched 6.2 innings, allowing four runs, two unearned, before junior pitcher Rachele Fico came on to record the game’s final out. “It was a tough strike zone she had to throw in, and I felt the number of pitchers she threw caught up to her at the end of the game,” Torina said. “She battled through it and got a well-deserved win.” LSU once again faced Oklahoma on Saturday afternoon, with Ricketts in the circle. The Tigers’ offense sputtered on the way to a 5-0 defeat. Despite being shut out and accumulating only three hits, Torina said she saw signs of improvement. “We made some nice offensive adjustments against Ricketts,” Torina said. “If we’re able to make adjustments against a pitcher of that caliber, we’ll be able to make adjustments against other pitchers during the season.” Fico pitched seven innings in the loss and allowed five runs, with all but one unearned. In the weekend finale, LSU lost to Oklahoma State, 1-0, in 10 innings to complete a 1-3 weekend.

Fico pitched her way out of a bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the ninth before conceding the game-winning run on a fielding error by freshman second baseman Rikki Alcaraz in the 10th frame. “I just tried my best to keep us in the game as long as I could,” Fico said. “We fought hard, but the other team came away with the win this time.” LSU failed to capitalize on late-game opportunities at the plate and committed four errors in the loss. “We don’t have the room to make defensive mistakes,” Torina said. The Tigers next play Wednesday at 6 p.m. against Nicholls State (4-14) in Thibodaux. Contact Scott Branson at

Tigers start spring practice, Mettenberger in spotlight

Alex Cassara Sports Contributor

Whipping winds and rolling rains couldn’t put a damper on the LSU football team’s good time this weekend as the Tigers held their first practices of the spring on Friday and Saturday in helmets and shorts. “The first day of spring ball is kind of fun,” said LSU coach Les Miles. “There was a lot of enthusiasm.” It was the first time the squad was on the field at the same time since its 21-0 trouncing at the hands of Alabama in the BCS National Championship game, and Miles said he could tell how eager the team was to begin their road to redemption. “They were 13-1, finest record in college. They were conference champions, but there’s one thing they didn’t accomplish,” Miles said. “Certainly, like me, they wanted to win that last one. ... There’s a little bit more want to practice and prepare. I think there’s a group of men there that want to finish.” The spring spotlight is on heralded junior quarterback Zach Mettenberger, as he should become the undisputed leader of an offense that was mired in play-caller controversy over the past season with Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee. 

He looked precise in the opening practices, rarely missing his target as he threw against an invisible defense. “He just needs reps,” Miles said. “He sees the throws. He was sharp today. We have a thumbnail of our offense in at this point but it was a good first day. There was a lot of positives.” Mettenberger said he got together with receivers, tight ends and running backs three days a week leading up to spring practice and felt the payoff was instant.  “We came out here in day one and day two, we were really crisp,” Mettenberger said. “The timing was just a lot better than most first days. That’s just something we need to keep getting better on and hopefully by day 15, we’ll be perfect.” Senior offensive lineman Josh Dworaczyk will return for a sixth season after a knee injury in last year’s campaign earned him a medical redshirt, but he was still limited in practices. He was wearing a white jersey Friday but donned a green shirt Saturday, which is typically worn by quarterbacks to protect them from contact. Dworaczyk participated in individual footwork drills but said he sat out of team run-throughs, which were closed to the media. He could be seen stepping up to mimic the tight end while the linemen took


Meet raises $100,000 to fight breast cancer Hall wins nation best, overall title Alex Cassara Sports Contributor

The fourth-largest home crowd in LSU gymnastics history had a couple of things to cheer about Friday night. When freshman Lloimincia Hall rocked the floor exercise to tie the nation’s top score of 9.975 in the event, the 5,159 fans packing the PMAC screamed. And when former LSU linebacker Bradie James revealed the Fifth Annual Etta James Memorial Meet had raised $100,000 for his Foundation 56, which aims to stamp out breast cancer in Baton Rouge, they roared. “A lot of people worked to get to this point, and it’s been great,” James said. “We want to do some things that are bigger. Everybody had to step their game up, and $100,000 should be enough to make an imprint in this community.” Hall posted a 39.425 allaround score to win her second overall title of the season and spark a 196.550-194.875 victory for the No. 10 Lady Tigers (5-8) over No.

20 NC State (9-4). LSU is now 100 all-time against the Wolfpack. “It’s just a blessing,” said Hall, who was ranked No. 8 on the floor going into the meet. “I go out there and have fun. Floor is like my baby, I love that event. I just have a good time because you can, especially at home, release all your worries.” Freshman Rheagan Courville added two more individual titles to bring her team-leading total to 15, taking the vault with a 9.875 and sharing the uneven bars with sophomore Sarie Morrison by matching her 9.900. It was the first time this season an LSU gymnast scored a 9.9 on bars.  LSU coach D-D Breaux used the special occasion to talk about how important giving back to the community is for her and her athletes. She said James is a “shining example” of what she believes an LSU student athlete is supposed to be, but she wasn’t the only one who walked away from the meet impressed. “The hair was standing up on the back of your neck,” James said of Hall’s floor routine. “I’ve been involved in five of these things, and man, [the gymnasts] just get better and better.” Contact Alex Cassara at

steps, and he said he’s eager to get as much work in as possible. “I’m so excited to be out here,” Dworaczyk said. “I have fresh legs. I want to play again, and wherever that’s at, I’m happy.” Junior cornerback and Heisman finalist Tyrann Mathieu was not present because he was in Atlantic City, N.J., to receive the Chuck Bednarik Award in a formal ceremony. He tweeted that he arrived back in Baton Rouge on Saturday night.

Tigers earn first SEC victory of season LSU opens SEC play

with mixed outcomes

Spencer Hutchinson Sports Contributor

The LSU men’s tennis team notched its first Southeastern Conference victory of the season Sunday with a 6-1 victory against No. 48 Vanderbilt. The No. 17 Tigers, coming off a 5-1 home loss to No. 9 Kentucky on Friday, improved their record this season to 7-3 and evened their SEC record at 1-1. “We knew Vanderbilt was a real feisty team,” said LSU coach Jeff Brown. “You could see that from the beginning.” The Tigers outlasted the Commodores to earn the doubles point and a 1-0 lead, which Brown said was key to the victory. LSU’s No. 39-ranked doubles duo of senior Neal Skupski and sophomore James Turbervill clinched the doubles point for the Tigers in their debut on court one this season. Skupski and Turbervill defeated Vanderbilt’s Gonzalez Austin and Blake Bazarnik, 9-8. The Tigers’ No. 38-ranked pair of junior Olivier Borsos and freshman Chris Simpson also made its season debut on court two with an 8-4 drubbing of Charlie Jones and Anton Kovrigin. “With [Skupski] and Turbervill being at the level they’re at, it allows us some flexibility, so we’ll be able to move people around,”

Junior Olivier Borsos lunges for a ball Sunday in his singles match against Vanderbilt University. The Tigers earned their first SEC victory of the season, 6-1.

Brown said. The Tigers jumped out to an even bigger lead early in singles play when Simpson quickly finished off Bazarnik, 6-3, 6-3, and Turbervill defeated Michael Retta, 6-1, 7-6. Vanderbilt secured its only point when Austin topped Skupski, 6-2, 7-6, but junior Stefan Szacinski sealed the victory for the Tigers soon after with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over Kovrigin. “It was a great feeling clinching a match,” Szacinski said. “I think it was my first time clinching, and I’m a junior.” Szacinski had struggled so far this season with a 2-5 record coming into Sunday’s matchup.

“He’s bounced back from a bad leg in the fall, and he’s kind of just gotten himself going,” Brown said. Senior Tom Knights and No. 66 Borsos also picked up victories for the Tigers on Sunday. “Credit to all the guys on the team, even Neal who lost his match, [he] went down fighting,” Szacinski said. LSU will now prepare for its first SEC road trip of the season. The Tigers will challenge No. 46 Alabama on Friday and No. 12 Auburn on Sunday. Contact Spencer Hutchinson at

The LSU women’s tennis team opened its Southeastern Conference season on the road over the weekend with split results. The No. 43 Lady Tigers’ match against No. 74 Kentucky was delayed until Saturday morning because of inclement weather. The delay did not slow LSU (6-3, 1-1), who won its fifth consecutive match, 4-3, over the Wildcats. “I was really impressed by the performance this team put in,” said LSU coach Tony Minnis. “To go on the road and beat a team like we faced really speaks to our group.” The Tigers started the match by clinching the doubles point, highlighted by senior Whitney Wolf and junior Keri Frankenberger’s 9-8 upset of No. 55 duo Jessica Stiles and Khristina Blajkevitch. Senior Olivia Howlett started with a win in singles, extending

their lead to 2-0. The Wildcats caught up to LSU, evening the score at 3-3 and forcing the match to come down to sophomores Yvette Vlaar and CeCe Witten on court six. Vlaar clinched the match for the Lady Tigers, 6-2, 6-1, giving the squad its first SEC victory of the season. LSU quickly hit the road again to play No. 35 Vanderbilt on Sunday in Nashville. The Tigers were held in check against the Commodores, who won 7-0. Vanderbilt started the match quickly, earning the doubles point in dominating fashion. LSU struggled on all courts in singles as well, as Frankenberger, who lost, 6-4, 4-6, 10-7, to Ashleigh Antal, was the only Lady Tiger to force a third set. The loss snaps LSU’s fivematch winning streak and gives the Lady Tigers their first loss in SEC play. The Lady Tigers play host to No. 25 Alabama on Friday at 3 p.m.

Trio of Tigers qualify for NCAA Michael Gegenheimer Sports Contributor

Three members of the LSU track teams earned NCAA automatic-qualifying spots Friday night when the Tigers hosted the NCAA Indoor Qualifying meet, held for those who had not already earned a bid for the national meet. Senior weight thrower Michael Lauro was the lone Tiger to qualify at the “last-chance” meet, while sophomore weight thrower Denise Hinton and fellow sophomore triple jumper Lynnika Pitts qualified for the Lady Tigers. Hinton had a disappointing performance at the Southeastern Conference Championships last week, when the Lady Tigers’ record holder wasn’t able to make it out of the preliminary round. Hinton bounced back at the NCAA qualifier and broke her own school record, good for the nation’s No. 6 throw this season. The throw earned her a spot in the NCAA Championships. “She didn’t throw well [last week],” said LSU coach Dennis Shaver. “She didn’t even make the final at the SEC championship, so

I was pretty disappointed in that. We’ll see how she does at the national meet.” Lauro improved his personal best three times on the night including a 72-6 1/4 foot throw on his final attempt to put him in the NCAA meet at the No. 6 spot. “Last week, I was being too methodical at the beginning of the throw,” Lauro said in a news release. “[Friday], I pushed the ball harder at the start of the throw so there was no hesitation on the third and fourth turns. That’s what I need to be sure to do at nationals so I can score some big points for our team next weekend.” Pitts rounded out LSU’s qualifiers with a 42-9 3/4 foot triple jump on her final attempt that landed her in the No. 8 spot in the nation. The jump bested her previous personal record of 42-2 3/4 feet, after she surpassed the mark on her second attempt with a 42-3 1/2 foot jump. “We got done several things we were specifically trying to get done, and that’s why we host the meet,” Shaver said. “We were successful in that if we have success tomorrow at Iowa State then I think we’ll be in

good shape going into the NCAA meet.” LSU had two sprinters compete in Iowa State’s qualifier Saturday, when senior Riker Hylton and freshman Aaron Ernest attempted to qualify for NCAA. Hylton was able to improve to the No. 19 spot in the men’s 400-meter dash, which puts him on the bubble for the national meet. After the official list of NCAA participants is released today, the Tiger qualifiers will travel to Nampa, Idaho, from March 9-10 for the national meet. CATHERINE THRELKELD / The Daily Reveille

LSU Rugby tramples Mississippi State, 84-0 Morgan Wampold Sports Contributor

The LSU rugby club didn’t let a weather cancellation stop it from shutting out Mississippi State on Saturday in Baton Rouge. The Tigers (4-0) defeated the Bulldogs (0-4), 85-0, in a rout that marked the second-straight shutout for the LSU squad. The match was originally scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. Saturday, but the UREC’s cancellation forced a relocation to Highland Road Park and pushed the start time to 2 p.m. Four players notched hat tricks, which accounted for 60 of LSU’s 85 points. Among the four were grad student Jase Pickup and sophomores Morgan Mills, Will Middleton and Daniel Dowd. Senior outside center Jeff Levasseur said the offensive effort was something the team has prided itself on this spring, and they continued to build on their reputation in Saturday’s match.

“I don’t want to say we necessarily were scoring at will, but we definitely took advantage of every opportunity [Mississippi State] gave us,” Levasseur said. With their offensive game established early in the season, Levasseur said the Tigers wanted Saturday’s game to be a testament to their defensive ability. But the biggest factor in the win came down to depth, Levasseur said. Mississippi State traveled to Baton Rouge with only 15 players — the minimum required to play — so every player had to play the whole game. Fatigue wasn’t an issue for the Tigers, who used all of the subs allotted to them during the match. But the Bulldogs weren’t without some advantages LSU junior flyhalf Allen Alongi said. “They were way bigger than us in the forwards and backs, but size isn’t everything,” Alongi said.

Senior safety Brandon Taylor, linebacker Ryan Baker and offensive guard Will Blackwell are gone, meaning a new batch of players will have to step up and fill those leadership roles. Sixth-year senior offensive lineman Josh Dworaczyk and junior safety Eric Reid should assume those roles on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. Reid is one of the best defense in the country and will be a firstround pick when he decides to enter the NFL Draft. Two new faces on Miles’ staff are wide receivers coach Adam Henry and defensive backs coach Corey Raymond.  Both coaches are thrust into nearly opposite situations. Henry comes to LSU after serving on the Oakland Raiders’

The Lady Tigers got back within four points with two minutes remaining in the game, but Tennessee went on a 10-2 run to close the game, including a 3-point dagger by senior guard Shekinna Stricklen with 56 seconds remaining. Sophomore forward Theresa Plaisance scored 13 points off the bench for LSU. “She made some great plays for us on the offensive end when we got a little stagnant,” Perotti said. “That’s what you need this time of year. You need everybody to contribute whatever they can.” The Lady Tigers had a difficult road to the championship game, as they had to beat an Arkansas team that defeated them by 20 points earlier in the season and Kentucky, the tournament’s No. 1 seed. It looked like LSU would be knocked out early against the Razorbacks on Friday. After jumping out to a quick 10-2 lead in the first five minutes of the game, the Lady

Of Katz’s 20 hits this season, 11 have been for extra bases. Katz struck out in his first at-bat of the second game, ending his streak. Katz’s average dipped to a still-astronomical .500 clip. But while Katz was a nearly impossible out, clean-up hitter Rhymes was quietly spectacular.

staff for five years. He’ll be stuck with the task of reinvigorating the Tigers’ passing game, which ranked No. 106 in the country last season. The problem is that LSU lost its best receiver when Rueben Randle decided to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft. Sophomore Odell Beckham Jr. and senior Russell Shepard are solid returning contributors, but there is certainly a lack of depth at the position. Look for sophomore Jarvis Landry to have a great spring and vie for the No. 2 starting receiver job along with Shepard. In Raymond’s case, he returns a wealth of talent in the secondary led by the junior safety Reid and junior corners Tyrann Mathieu, Tharold Simon and Craig Loston.  If Loston plays like the No. 1 safety in the country coming out of high school in 2009, this secondary Tigers lost their shooting touch. Down 40-33 with less than two minutes remaining, LSU found it again. Webb and sophomore guard Jeanne Kenney combined to score eight points in the final 1:42, including a game-winning 3-pointer by Webb with nine seconds remaining. Barrett blocked Arkansas’ lastsecond shot to seal the win. Saturday’s Kentucky game wasn’t nearly as close, as the Lady Tigers led by 18 at one point. LSU was deadly from the charity stripe against the Wildcats, connecting on 34-of-43 attempts, while Kentucky made just 6-of-13.

The Daily Reveille will once again be one of the elite groups in the nation. Being a former defensive back at LSU from 1988-91 and having coached on LSU’s National Championship squad in 2007, there shouldn’t be much of a drop-off between Raymond and former defensive backs coach Ron Cooper. But the main thing I’m looking forward to seeing at the Spring Game is how well Mettenberger adjusts to life as LSU’s starting quarterback. Thankfully, Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson have exhausted their eligibility, so the more-talented Mettenberger can give LSU a chance to throw the ball downfield more effectively. There should be much less drama surrounding the Tigers this season, since fans won’t be able to debate whether or not Miles should

page 15 play Jefferson or Lee. Mettenberger gave current Georgia starter Aaron Murray a scare for his starting job when he was a freshman, and he has a chance to be a top quarterback in the Southeastern Conference. Even with multiple outlets pegging the Tigers as the front-runner to win it all in 2012, Miles will not be satisfied until he is able to hoist that crystal football up for the second time.

I have been saying the same thing publicly for a year or more, and it is very important to speak out. Many people feel the same way, but they are too afraid of Anonymous to speak out against them. Anonymous is a small minority of deluded fanatics, who use online forums to make themselves appear more numerous than they are. Please note that my remarks refer only to Anonymous in the USA and UK. People tell me that Anonymous serves some purpose in other nations, and I cannot comment on the accuracy of that statement.” - Sam Browne

Radiohead proves legendary status shows THE NEW FRONTIERSMAN Clayton Crockett Opinion Editor On the latter half of a life lived in a tie and buttoned collar, either the tie asphyxiates the wearer or the wearer loses the tie. One could go the way of Ernest Hemingway — drunken author and father of mainstream depression — offing themselves after a life of work and cynicism, or give up the gun and retire to a simpler life. With a new world tour and an album to propel it, British rockers Radiohead have struggled to find a happy medium. Unsurprisingly, the product is beautiful. Radiohead’s fourth stop in the U.S. had them playing before a crowd of more than 19,000 in Houston’s Toyota Center on Saturday, with Oklahoma’s Other Lives touring as the palette-cleanser. Looking back on the show as a live recording of Radiohead’s “Idioteque” plays in the car taking me home, frontman Thom Yorke’s charismatically carefree stage presence the night before only makes sense in the wake of a life of buttoned collars. The band’s deepening angle peaked out intermittently throughout 1999’s “OK Computer” and became realized in the pairing of “Kid A” and “Amnesiac,” maturing with each subsequent album.

And while 2007’s “In Rainbows” felt like advice from the wise and experienced, the live presentation of latest album “The King of Limbs” feels like the loosened tie and cocktail after an arduous workday. Yorke’s idiosyncratic dancing was once a novelty and a treat — now it’s the star of the show. And with that much flailing and jiving, perhaps Yorke inspired the newest album title (I guess it’s all you can do to get that many pretentious hipsters to dance). The drawling jams of “Limbs” proved to be the perfect complement to the old shouts of “This is really happening” and “Off with his head, man,” especially when you consider the band’s separation-turned-hiatus which followed “In Rainbows.” “Limbs” marks the natural progression noted above. When “In Rainbows” had the band reconsidering their ability to dive deeper yet, now we see a band who has returned to the simple joy of playing together. And Yorke’s jitters, nods and leaps boast the prestigious status which allows him to do so, much like Paul McCartney’s diddy “Dance Tonight,” Robert Plant’s work with Alison Krauss or LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy’s opulent resignation in a soldout Madison Square Garden. Radiohead remembered what they loved about the business, and when you see them on stage, you can tell.

Yorke’s new ponytail must have happened by necessity upon donning his new moves — reserved bassist Colin Greenwood even danced in the corner of stage right. And guitarist Johnny Greenwood’s persistent eyes on Yorke made each new track feel evermore like a group of old friends having fun together. They bore the manner of parents who’ve seen their children go off to college. The show oozed pride and practice, and the band couldn’t have appeared more grateful to the sold-out stadium before them. Even more exciting, the groovy electronic beat of their newest track “Identikit” betrays more fun to be had. And if their show was anything to judge by, Radiohead is excited for the future. The most beautiful thing about

the experience was the looming fact that this band has no necessity to persist: Radiohead solidified its place in music history long ago. The logical conclusion is that they’re only here because they want to be, and from a band like Radiohead, it means a lot. They proved it by closing with classic jam, “Paranoid Android.”

Boi and Akon and wouldn’t book psychedelic act MGMT because of drug references in their music.” Doesn’t Ludacris have such family classics as “War with God,” “Move Bitch” and “Sex Room?” These aren’t drug references, but along with drugs could go sex and violence, right? I am a fan of both Ludacris and MGMT, so I’m excited to see

this year’s version. I would like to see some consistency from Students on Target with their booking, though. See you on the Grounds!

My name is Phil, and I’m a Girl Scout cookie-holic THE PHILIBUSTER Phil Sweeney Columnist Every year, it’s invariable. During the last months of winter’s oppressive reign, I’m always a little blue, a little fuzzy. A little googly-eyed, maybe. It’s not depression. It’s not a more psychiatric iteration of March Madness. But the “om nom noms,” as it’s sometimes branded, is a serious disease, nevertheless. My name’s Phil Sweeney, and I’m a cookie-holic. And I’m not alone. Millions of Americans are seasonally afflicted with “Cookie Monster Syndrome,” otherwise described as “Thin Mint Disorder” and “Samoa-ism.” The illness isn’t entirely understood, but prominent medical professionals are eyeing the Girl Scouts of the USA, of course, as its perpetrator. Girl Scouts, the self-described “world’s preeminent organization

dedicated solely to girls,” peddles its cookies every February to communities across the world. The cookie sale is the organization’s largest fundraiser, yielding nearly $1 billion annually. That’s a lot of dough. Street corners, storefronts and church vestibules resound with the pitter-patter of little feet and the chitter-chatter of little lips. “Would you like to buy some Girl Scout cookies?” they plead with a precious twinkle in their innocent eyes. And seldom is heard a discouraging word — your response to the eager young queenies’ question can be anything but a “no.” Mine, for instance, is another question. With a beaming Savannah Smile, I pat my belly and ask, “Do I look like the type of guy that doesn’t want to buy some Girl Scout cookies?” I figure that’s more courteous than “Me want cookie!” Cookie Monster Syndrome — blame the Girl Scouts. As far as indictments are concerned, though, the finger Indiana

Rep. Bob Morris is pointing at the organization, which marks its centennial this year, is decidedly more clawed. In a private e-mail to House members, Morris explained his decision to abstain from nonbinding legislation celebrating the Girl Scouts in its 100th year. Morris judges the group to be “radicalized” in its ties to infamous pro-choice non-profit Planned Parenthood, abortion and LGBT advocates. Girl Scouts: clandestine conquerors of the world, one cookie at a time. Tough-cookie Morris’ abstention is assuredly half-baked, but there is a degree of validity — a few crumbs, really — to the accusations he levies against the group. For instance, while the organization maintains its independence from Planned Parenthood, in 2004, Cathy Cloninger, then-CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA, explicitly revealed that such a partnership did exist. “We partner with many organizations,” Cloninger said. “We

have relationships with ... Planned Parenthood organizations across the country.” Old news, maybe. But according to a recent Washington Times article, Girl Scouts of the USA tax returns consistently document “annual million-dollar-plus” contributions to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, “an aggressively pro-abortion organization that openly partners with International Planned Parenthood Federation.” As it were, every Girl Scout is “automatically made a member of this umbrella group,” the global affiliate of U.S.-based Planned Parenthood, The Washington Times reported. Either way, speculations of a Girl Scouts-Planned Parenthood alliance are reportedly disrupting this year’s unit-subsidizing cookie sales — which is a detriment to the sisterhood, citizenship and empowerment of American girls. Which is a tragedy, of course. On Saturday, two Girl Scouts heroically pursued a man who had stolen their cookie-sale cash box

outside a Wal-mart in Fort Bend County, Texas. The suspects fled in their vehicle — but not without a fight. “I started hitting the boy that was in the passenger seat. So I think he learned his lesson a little bit. And then they dragged my friend Rachel [Johnson] across the street, driving off real fast,” Iravia Cotton told CNN affiliate KPRC. Her friend agreed the deed was dastardly. “Who steals from a Girl Scout? I mean, seriously, that’s the worst thing ever,” Johnson said. Stealing from courageous Girl Scouts is precisely what Rep. Morris and his associates are doing, ironically — and indeed, it’s the worst thing ever. Ultimately, that shouldn’t be the way this cookie crumbles.

North Korean deal proves diplomacy is capable of success MANUFACTURING DISCONTENT David Scheuermann Columnist Apparently, the United States can pursue diplomacy. After years of hostility and threats, North Korea struck a deal with the U.S. last week to cease nuclear tests, uranium enrichment and long-range missile testing in exchange for 240,000 metric tons of food aid. The deal would also allow inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency to inspect the nuclear complex in Yongbyon, North Korea. The move was a step, if limited, in the right direction and comes at an important time for both countries. North Korea is just coming out of a change in leadership following Kim Jong-il’s death and the promotion of his son, Kim Jong-un, as supreme leader of North Korea. The country is also dangerously low on food, falling below the minimum grain supplies needed to feed each North Korean, according to researchers Stephan Haggard and Marcus Noland. The aid being offered by the United States could help North Korea just get by and have enough food for its population. Meanwhile, the United States has simultaneously been involved in a conflict with another country over its nuclear program: Iran. In a previous column on the escalating situation with Iran, I emphasized that the United States should pursue diplomatic solutions when dealing with the country. This newly-proposed deal with

North Korea is a testament that diplomatic solutions can work, even with hostile countries, and that such solutions should be attempted with Iran. In fact, it’s possible the United States was thinking about Iran as it negotiated with North Korea. The deal could be an example to the country and its people, demonstrating that we can work things out in other ways. Of course, it’s healthy to view these types of deals with skepticism. North Korea has agreed to suspend its nuclear program before. In 2007, North Korea agreed to shut down the Yongbyon reactor in exchange for 1 million tons of oil. However, the country restarted its program after both sides failed to agree on verification measures. It should also be noted that immediately following that deal, North Korea attempted to save face by issuing its usual empty threats about “merciless sacred war” with South Korea. Still, the potential benefits of pursuing such action makes the diplomacy worthwhile. Halting North Korea’s nuclear activities would be a tremendous step for improving relations in the region, and having International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors on the ground in the country would allow the United States and the rest of the world to have concrete facts and data when assessing the country’s nuclear program. Before, we could only work with speculation of what is going on in the country. Pursuing a similar type of diplomatic strategy with Iran could prove to be just as beneficial to the United States.

Of course, Iran isn’t in the same position as North Korea in terms of needs. However, a diplomatic strategy need only bring matters to the table that can be negotiated between the two parties in order to be successful. Still, there are critics to pursuing such a strategy with Iran. Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon stated the strategy used against North Korea will not work when dealing with Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on President Obama to issue explicit threats of military action against Iran.

This is entirely the wrong way to go about resolving the issue. These statements are a way to rile a fearful population into attacking an enemy that poses no immediate threat to our national security. Military threats will only embolden the Iranian government and unite the Iranian people against a common threat. A military strike would do nothing but cost lives and will only disrupt Iran’s nuclear ambitions for a short time. The program would eventually come back, and it would then have the support of its people as a

method of self defense. If the deal with North Korea demonstrated anything, it was that diplomatic solutions can be pursued. We should start with those before we get extreme.
