Testing center ends supplying paper Shannon Roberts Contributing Writer
Parking shortage plagues East Campus Residents outnumber spaces by 1,300 Ben Wallace Senior Contributing Writer
Basic math reveals a glaring parking problem for residents on LSU’s east side of campus. At full capacity, 3,387 students occupy the dorms and apartments east of Highland Road, said Jay High, Residential Life’s associate director of communication and development. But for more than 3,000
students, there are barely 2,000 residential spots available on the east side of campus as of today, according to ﬁgures provided by the Ofﬁce of Parking, Trafﬁc and Transportation. “It’s a case of parking further out than you want to and further than we want you to,” said Gary Graham, director of Parking, Trafﬁc and Transportation. “We have plenty of parking options on the west side of campus. [But] unless we take
something away from commuter or Greek students, then that’s the only option. It’d be solving one problem and starting another.” Not every student who lives on campus buys a residential parking permit. But every student has the option, which unleashes the potential for a localized parking deﬁcit of more than 1,000 spots. “There’s actually plenty of spaces [on campus as a whole],” High said. “They’re just not as close as we’d like them to be.” The closure of almost 100 spots in the horseshoe lot because of
construction on Annie Boyd Hall is only exacerbating the problem. “It’s impossible to ﬁnd a legal spot [anywhere close],” said chemistry freshman Henry Molony, an Evangeline Hall resident. “It’s either the law center or a frat house. It’s completely impractical.” Many residents end up parking in the University Student Recreational Complex lots as the closest available option, especially if they get back to campus late at night. “I don’t even bother looking
Students going to take exams in the Computer-Based Testing Center in Himes Hall may notice some changes as the ﬁrst exams of the semester approach. David O’Brien, assistant director of computing operations for the Ofﬁce of Assessment and Evaluation, said there are two changes that would impact students. Firstly, the center has stopped supplying calculators for students. The second change is that professors must specify how much scratch paper students need and pay for the paper. “When we ﬁrst started the testing lab we envisioned nothing in, nothing out,” O’Brien said of the original decision to supply calculators for students. He said the center eventually reached the point where it had to buy 150 calculators a semester because calculators were disappearing. He also said students would wait in line to use a calculator because the demand for the devices was so high.

Storm could make landfall late Tuesday Staff Report
The University is remaining open as of Sunday night while all eyes are on Tropical Storm Isaac. University, city and state ofﬁcials are bracing for what could be Louisiana’s ﬁrst hurricane of the season, as the storm grows stronger and draws nearer to the state. Early projections saw the storm making landfall close to the Gulf
Coast border of Mississippi and Alabama, but throughout Sunday, the projections slowly moved westward, with the storm center falling just east of New Orleans. Isaac has weakened but is expected to strengthen upon traveling through the Gulf of Mexico’s warm waters with about an 80 percent chance of evolving into a hurricane. Projections had the storm entering the Gulf early this morning. The University has not yet canceled classes and other scheduled events, despite Governor Bobby
Tropical Storm Isaac was about 50 miles southeast of the Florida Keys on Sunday at 9:45 a.m. It is moving west-northwest at nearly 18 mph with maximum sustained winds near 60 mph. It is projected to make landfall in Louisiana on Tuesday.

INTERNATIONAL New Egyptian constitution to be drafted by late September, PM says CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — Egypt will have a new constitution drafted by the end of September and ready to be submitted to a nationwide referendum, the country’s prime minister said Saturday. Hisham Kandil did not specify a date for the referendum, though, according to Egypt’s MENA state news agency. The drafting of a new constitution has been a highly divisive issue in Egypt since last year’s uprising that ousted longtime authoritarian ruler Hosni Mubarak.

To hero-astronaut Neil Armstrong, moon-walk was ‘just doing his job’
Lovebugs descend on La., could be among state’s worst seasons
CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — Neil Armstrong made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step onto the moon. He commanded the historic landing of the Apollo 11 spacecraft on the moon July 20, 1969, capping the most daring of the 20th century’s scientific expeditions and becoming the first man to walk on the moon. He was “a reluctant American hero who always believed he was just doing his job,” his family said in a statement.
HOUMA — This year’s hot and humid weather could make this one of the worst lovebug seasons in south Louisiana, bug experts said. Lovebugs, so called because of their tendency to fly attached to one another while mating, are a problem for the exteriors of vehicles and structures, LSU AgCenter agent Barton Joffrion told The Courier. The insects’ scientific name is Plecia nearctica, but they’re also called march flies, lovebugs and united bugs. “Now’s the time for them to really start, and in the last two or three days, they’ve really started to show up,” Joffrion said
Lawmakers want to start building $2.8M fence along Mexican border PHOENIX, Ariz.

Steve Smith, RMaricopa, tells the Arizona Republic he believes more private donations will come in once construction begins.

Holden faces opposition in November election Megan Dunbar Staff Writer
Since 2004, Baton Rouge Mayor-President Melvin “Kip” Holden has enjoyed city-wide popularity and a landslide 2008 election. But as he begins another bid for a ﬁnal term in November, the path to victory might not be an easy one. Holden currently faces two opponents who hope to uproot him and take the reins of East Baton Rouge Parish. Mike Walker, current mayor pro tempore and head of the Metro Council, poses the greatest threat. Second-in-command Walker has received the endorsement of the GOP. Holden has not yet received any ofﬁcial endorsements, unlike past elections, when Jim Bernhard, the CEO of the Shaw Group, helped to secure support from suburban voters. The other contender is businessman Gordon Mese, who comes
from Baton Rouge with business experience as opposed to a political background. Mese is using only social media outlets to spread the word about his campaign. Mese’s campaign slogan, as it reads on the banner of his Facebook page, is “Against the machine.” The mayor-president’s job consists of duties taken on by the traditional mayor of a city and president of a parish. Citizens of Baton Rouge voted to combine the two positions in 1947, as East Baton Rouge Parish began to ﬁll up and consolidation made more sense. Holden will run on a platform similar to his other elections, pulling from his success over the past eight years and focusing on downtown revitalization and his success in creating jobs. Republican Walker has told local news outlets he wants to focus on cleaning up Baton Rouge crime. He plans to budget for a new police academy.
Mese, with his background in urban planning, said he wants to overhaul the Uniﬁed Development Code to build a city that will attract graduates of the three local higher education institutions. The Uniﬁed Development Code dictates the basics of the city; permits, utilities, and street planning are included, among others. “This race really should be important to students, especially if they want to stay here after they graduate,” Mese said. Not all students are informed about the election. Child and family studies senior Faith Vincent said she doesn’t know who any of the candidates are. Sociology senior Tyler Lathrop said he is undecided about whether he will vote. Voting for the mayoral race will occur on Nov. 6, the same day as the presidential election.

Tobacco-free campus a possibility Taylor Kimball Contributing Writer
Despite the warning signs plastered near the library’s entrance, whiffs of cigarette smoke still linger in the air. Those aromas, along with every other trace of tobacco, could eventually disappear from campus. The Student Health Center is now taking a stance in favor of making the University a tobacco-free campus, said Kathy Saichuk, Health Promotion Coordinator for the center. After remaining quiet about the smoking policy, the health center will now collaborate with other administrators, students, faculty and staff. “I’d like to do it if we could, but it has to be carefully thought through,” said Interim Chancellor William Jenkins. Other colleges in the state like
Louisiana Delta Community College, the LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, Nicholls State University, Southern University and Tulane University are already tobacco-free campuses. More than 700 campuses are smoke-free and 500 campuses are tobacco-free in the United States. Tammy Millican, communication and grants manager for the Ofﬁce of Facility Services, said the University follows city and state policies regarding smoking. The Baton Rouge Code of Ordinances states that smoking is prohibited within 25 feet of the entrance or exit of any public building or facility. The change could affect students, faculty and visitors on campus. Students and professors would be forced to leave campus to smoke, and game days would be tobaccofree as well.

A tropical storm warning was issued for East Baton Rouge Parish around 5 p.m. Baton Rouge residents ﬂocked to grocery stores and gas stations Sunday night, emptying shelves and depleting supplies. The LSU Emergency Operations Center was activated Sunday night, said Ernie Ballard, director of LSU Media Relations. Ballard could not elaborate further on the University’s cancellation plans. On-campus residents can stay in residential halls and apartments during severe weather unless a campus evacuation is mandated. According to the LSU Emergency Operations website, campus evacuations will follow the same procedures as city evacuations, and students with vehicles should consult notiﬁcations from the city when leaving.

O’Brien said the reason why professors must now pay for the cost of the scratch paper is “pure economics.” The cost is four cents per student per exam. “We were spending over $5,000 a year on scratch paper,” he said. When requesting scratch paper, professors must specify whether they want two, three or four sheets of paper. The paper is legal 8-and-a-half by 11 size, O’Brien said. Nutrition sophomore Amanda Clarke said she thinks making teachers pay for paper is “ridiculous,” and that the tuition students pay should cover costs for the testing center. Kinesiology sophomore Hannah Lambert agrees with Clarke, and said it’s impossible for teachers to

The University’s Carl Maddox Field House was designated a Medical Special Needs Shelter by the state, according to a broadcast email sent late Sunday. Any on-campus power outages should be reported to LSU Facility Services. Further information concerning the University’s emergency plans can be found at the LSU Emergency Preparedness website, lsu.edu/ur/lsu_safety. Information on city evacuation procedures, shelters and other emergency information can be found at brgov.com/dept/oep/hurricaneprep. htm. Additional information about the storm and preparedness is available by calling the Mayor’s Ofﬁce of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness at 225-389-2100 or by visiting redstickready.com. Mayor-President Melvin “Kip” Holden advised residents to stay upto-date with the storm’s condition. “As with any storm, we are
urging everyone to continue to make the proper preparations not only for the duration of the storm, but also for the possibility of being without basic services for an extended period of time,” Holden said in a Sunday news release. Jindal detailed the state’s preparation plans at a Sunday afternoon news conference. New Orleans, as well as other southeastern coastal areas, are under hurricane warning as of Sunday night. Some mandatory and voluntary evacuations have already been issued. Jindal said measures taken by universities will vary by campus. He was scheduled to appear at the Republican National Convention this week but may not attend, saying the state is his top priority.
know how much paper a student will need. “Every person is going to use a different amount,” Lambert said. Clarke said she does not agree with the decision to not offer calculators, but she understands the choice. “It makes sense because you’re going to need it in math class,” she said. Lambert said students should always carry a calculator in their backpacks, but sometimes students forget them, so the testing center should have calculators available. Faculty Senate President Kevin Cope said the reason for the testing center’s changes can be attributed to the budget crisis. “I think it’s always nice for the University to provide equipment and other amenities for students, but I
think the No. 1 lesson we can take away from this is that this is one of the consequences from the budgetary situation we ﬁnd ourselves in,” Cope said. He said most students can go to Walmart, Best Buy and other stores to buy a calculator for around $15. Cope acknowledges that many people are going through some kind of hardship right now. Cope said although the issue of calculators and scratch paper is minor, it is a problem. “We are now beginning to see the dangers and absurdities of where the budget situation is going to take us,” he said.

Lance Armstrong, a man whose life has been deﬁned by persevering against impossible odds, did something very un-Armstrong-esque — he surrendered a battle. Facing a lifetime ban from the sport of which he was the poster child a decade ago, Armstrong waved the white ﬂag to the doping allegations brought forth by the United States Anti-Doping Agency. Armstrong didn’t feel like it was a fair ﬁght. “If I thought for one moment that by participating in USADA’s process, I could confront these allegations in a fair setting and — once and for all — put these charges to rest, I would jump at the chance,” Armstrong said in a statement Thursday. One of the most decorated athletes of the 21st century will likely be kicked out of cycling with the door slammed violently behind him. The seven straight Tour de France titles won by Armstrong from 1999 to 2005 will be wiped from the record books. Much like the pointless debate on whether the 2012 Team USA basketball team could oust the 1992 “Dream Team,” we’ll probably never know how much, if at all, Armstrong’s cycling legacy was

Team leader Logan familiar with working for what he has
“Work” is a word that, in his heavily accented speech, LSU junior defensive tackle Bennie Logan uses often. “Guys that’s not in the spotlight, they have to be hungry and humble, they’ve got to be patient with it,” Logan said. “I wasn’t the
high-ranked defensive lineman, so I had to work harder than the ﬁvestars to get into college. … That motivated me throughout my life.” The recruiting circuit barely noticed Logan as a high school junior, even as he was being named Class 2A First-Team All-State. As a senior, his name received some clout when he repeated as an All-State performer, and a late commitment
to the Tigers didn’t cultivate lofty expectations. Three years later, Logan, with the help of his work ethic, has found himself in an unfamiliar position as the anchor of college football’s premier front four and the designated leader of the nation’s No. 3 team. “I was recruited late in the year, so I’m not used to all the spotlight and all of the cameras,” Logan said.

North Carolina State, goalie shut down LSU, 2-1
Tigers fall flat in opening weekend Chris Abshire Sports Writer
Few teams have entered the LSU Soccer Stadium in recent years and left the Tigers or LSU coach Brian Lee visibly frustrated. North Carolina State sophomore goalkeeper Victoria Hopkins made sure the Wolfpack did that Sunday, swatting and swiping LSU (1-1-1) shots out of the goal to spur a 2-1 NC State win, and she did it on one good ankle. Two Tiger defensive breakdowns led to a pair of goals, as the Wolfpack (2-2) overcame an early deﬁcit, and Hopkins saved the day down the stretch against a rabid LSU rally. “Victoria sprained her ankle in warm-ups, but she had to gut it out since our backup has a ﬁnger issue,” said NC State coach Steve Stringthorpe. “She was top notch today.” The loss wrapped up a disappointing home debut for the Tigers, who also played Rice to a 1-1 draw in double overtime Friday night. LSU entered the weekend with a 33-5-7 mark at home since the start of 2007. The Wolfpack win sealed the Tigers’ ﬁrst two-game winless streak on home turf since October 2007. “This has to be a learning experience for us,” said LSU
LINEBACKERS, from page 5 us; he is a physical guy that can run.” Jones is expected to step into the strong side linebacker role after receiving limited chances on the outside in 2011. At 6-feet-2-inches, Jones looks like he wouldn’t weigh his listed 205 pounds soaking wet, but he brings a burst of speed on the outside. Jones is the only other linebacker to have signiﬁcant playing time on his résumé after seeing more snaps at the end of last season. “All the linebackers [this season] are focused,” Jones said. “Everybody is just in it instead of being selﬁsh. The older guys are helping out the younger guys.” Junior Lamin Barrow is expected to get the nod on the weak side, but Chavis and LSU coach Les Miles have alluded to more of a rotation at the position since Barrow is the greenest of the three.

sophomore defender Jodi Calloway. “We know how much of an advantage [home ﬁeld] usually is. It was really disappointing not to defend that.” Despite playing two double-overtime matches within six days of Sunday’s match, the Tigers looked like the fresher team against NC State and grabbed the early advantage. LSU junior midﬁelder Nina Anderson stole a pass near the center stripe in the 28th minute and dribbled down the left side before reversing directions and sending a low cross to senior forward Carlie Banks, who snaked a left-footer past Hopkins from 14 yards out. But the Tigers’ momentum quickly evaporated in the sticky midafternoon heat. State sophomore Shelli Spamer saw LSU’s backline out of position 10 minutes later and arched a 40-yard shot at Tiger goalkeeper Megan Kinneman. Kinneman made the save, but it ricocheted off the crossbar and Wolfpack freshman Shannon Colligan cleaned up the putback after outracing a lethargic LSU defense to the ball. “We got caught ﬂat-footed,” Lee said. “That play turned a game we were on the way to winning two, three to nil and made it a tossup.” Another Tiger defensive gaffe in the 52nd minute sparked NC State’s second goal. Wolfpack sophomore Jessica Baity lobbed a free kick into the penalty box, but
LSU let the ball bounce, which allowed State forward Cheyenne Spade to loop in the game winner from ﬁve yards. “That was even more of a basic mistake than the ﬁrst goal,” Lee said. “It’s Defending 101 that you can’t let a free kick create a chance like that.” From there, LSU poured on the pressure, but Hopkins never strained under it. The Tigers tallied four corner kicks in the ﬁnal 40 minutes and failed to convert several more close-range opportunities to force a third straight overtime game. Hopkins ofﬁcially earned six saves — all in dramatic fashion — but LSU’s best and ﬁnal chance was out of her hands. With three seconds left, LSU freshman Fernanda Piña found the ball at her feet within the goalie box and the goal mostly clear. The moment was quickly lost. She slipped, failing to put a clean foot on the ball and providing an apt conclusion to what Lee called a “sloppy” weekend. “Our concentration wasn’t there,” Lee said. “The girls have to play mentally stronger than they showed the last few days.”
The youth at the linebacker position is what stands out the most when looking at the depth charts. The Tigers have 10 freshmen at the linebacker position this season, and many of them are expected to receive signiﬁcant playing time. Freshmen Lorenzo Phillips, Ronnie Feist and Kwon Alexander are expected to lead the way for the future of Tiger linebackers. Chavis claims his group of greenhorns can ﬁt in with the
veterans to make major contributions on the defensive side of the ball. “With [the younger guys], even if they don’t know exactly what to do, you can expect them to go 110 percent, which you can’t say about a lot of people,” Minter said. “They have a motor. They try to be in every play.”

Monday, August 27, 2012 LOGAN, from page 5 the beginning. Logan earned Southeastern Conference Defensive Lineman of the Week after recording three tackles for loss against Mississippi State. He was responsible for one of Alabama’s missed ﬁeld goals in the “Game of the Century” on Nov. 5, 2011, when he got his ﬁngertips on a second-quarter try. He forced a fumble in the SEC Championship win. “Once I started making plays, it was a thing to me like, ‘Oh, you know you could do it, why are you cheating yourself? Don’t cheat yourself anymore. Just continue working hard to be better and continue dominating,’” Logan said. Work is what he remembers of watching Drake Nevis, the former teammate after whom Logan models himself. It’s what he tries to impart to the younger players with his actions on the ﬁeld and in the weight room. Work is what ultimately led the coaching staff to award Logan with the coveted No. 18 uniform during spring. LSU Coach Les Miles called him a “program guy” at media day and Logan said he was honored to follow players like Richard Murphy and Matt Mauck who have donned the number before him. “[Bennie] called me and he said, ‘My number changed!’ ... I thought he was talking about his cell phone number,’” said Logan’s cousin Harry Garry. “… He was really excited about it. He always had that leadership quality.” Garry helped Logan through a long recruiting process, which Garry said was the result of Logan “never [getting] in the right eyes” at Red River High School in smalltown Coushatta, La. Garry said he thought Logan was also overshadowed: 30 minutes away in Mansﬁeld, fellow class of 2009 recruit Chris Davenport, who’s since converted to offensive tackle for LSU, was garnering the national attention along the defensive line with a ﬁvestar rating from Rivals.com.
It wasn’t until midway through his senior year that Logan began gaining notoriety for his increased strength, size and production. Nebraska and Michigan were pushing hard for him, Garry said. The local Louisiana schools were also in the mix; their proximity to Logan’s home was a positive. So when LSU made itself known as a serious suitor, Garry said it was all over. Logan said Alabama wanted him to visit before he made a trip to Baton Rouge, but he was offered a scholarship by Miles on an ofﬁcial visit Jan. 23, 2009, and signed 12 days later. “Because of the road he took, he could’ve said, ‘Nah, this ain’t for me,’” Garry said. “He stayed humble, he kept doing what he had to do and he kept working hard. That hard work is paying off for him now.” After his breakout season, defensive coordinator John Chavis thinks Logan’s development could mirror another recently departed Tiger. “It was amazing to watch what [ﬁrst-round draft pick] Michael Brockers was able to accomplish in only two years of playing and then watch Bennie grow the same way,” Chavis said. “We certainly expect Bennie to play better this year.” Appearing on the Outland Trophy Watch List in the offseason, Logan knows he won’t surprise anyone this fall. He’s added eight pounds to his 6-foot-3-inch frame in order to take on frequent double teams. Known as a run-stopper, he’s worked on his pass rush to catch blockers off guard. Most of all, he’s working. “I don’t feel like I need to step out and be anything spectacular,” Logan said. “I’m just going to continue doing what I’m doing and work hard at practice. It’s the little things you do that will eventually separate you.”

The Daily Reveille ARMSTRONG, from page 5
inﬂuenced by performance-enhancing drugs. His refusal to ﬁght the allegations makes Lance Armstrong the cyclist no longer relevant. Big deal. The image of Armstrong passing under the Arc de Triomphe with an insurmountable lead in those seven Tour de France victories is a memory I will never forget. More importantly, neither will the millions of cancer survivors Armstrong inspired with his improbable comeback from testicular cancer. The lasting legacy of Lance Armstrong will be one of a person who spread a message of hope to the cancer community. Losing his glory and spot in sports lore doesn’t seem to matter to Armstrong. Why should it?
page 7 Raising cancer awareness 24/7 made much more of an impact on people’s lives than winning championships ever could. Regardless of if he doped, Armstrong’s impact on the cancer community can never be taken for granted. Armstrong parlayed his success in the cycling world to the real world with the Lance Armstrong Foundation. It may have started as a small company in 1997, but it has ballooned into one of the world’s largest organizations and will continue to aid the ﬁght against cancer despite Armstrong’s loss of seven Tour de France titles. You would think with the recent doping controversy, the LAF would see a decline in support. Think again. Since the news of Armstrong’s surrender to the USADA,
unsolicited donations to the foundation have increased by nearly 25 times according to Livestrong Foundation CEO Doug Ulman. People who have had cancer or have seen a family member or friend deal with the disease could care less whether Armstrong gets to keep his championships. Regardless of if he did it clean, Armstrong used cycling to raise awareness for a battle that had just begun. The man who refuses to give up the ﬁght against cancer — that’s the Lance we need to remember. Micah Bedard is a 22-year-old history senior from Houma.

Changes in Tiger TV to better suit student audience LSU STUDENT MEDIA RYAN BRUMLEY TTV Station Manager Many people on campus have never watched Tiger TV, and quite honestly, I understand why. If it played while you were in class, and even when you decided to skip class, why watch us when you just discovered that Netflix recently added “Malcolm in the Middle”? I get it, I honestly do. That’s why we have decided to change the way we bring you our content. We will now play all our shows from 6 to 7 p.m., after you’ve finished daily class work and before your daily helping of sitcoms, “Monday Night Football,” the “Real Housewives of Toledo” (it’s getting good this season) or whatever you watch in prime time. From 6 to 6:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday, you can watch our news show, “Newsbeat.” While for our generation, news can mean watching boring old suit-wearers or listening to Nancy Grace abrasively shout at you, we will bring you news that affects you, our fellow students. Whether it’s the latest in the University’s continual bout with budget cuts, ways the University is better adapting to the 21st century or even tracking a storm that could directly impact campus, we’ve got you covered. If it affects you as a student or as a person, you better believe we’re on it at Newsbeat. We also plan on working with The Reveille, KLSU and Legacy magazine to help bring you the most complete coverage of our University. Whether it’s extended interviews

with campus leaders or video that further enhances our student media colleagues’ already fantastic reporting, we’re working together to give you stories in the best format for your day. From 6:15 to 6:30 p.m., you can check out “Sports Showtime,” a light-hearted look at all LSU sports — not just football, men’s basketball and baseball. And while you can get your LSU football fix from hundreds of
other media outlets, we hope to show you a more human side to the purple and gold — a personal touch you won’t find on ESPN. Also, we hope to bring you more coverage on the New Orleans professional teams, since there is a huge overlap between LSU fans and Saints/Hornets fans. On Saturdays, we will be putting on the “Tiger TV Tailgate Show,” our own version of the famous “College Gameday,” except without Lee
Corso’s mindless rants. At 6:30 p.m., we will be playing a variety of entertainment shows. From “The Ramen,” our well established parody of E!’s “The Soup;” to newer shows like the “The Hot Spot,” which focuses on the latest in pop culture; to “The Big Show,” our satirical take on national and political news — there’s something out there for everyone. We may have a new format, new shows, even new people in charge,
but we still have that same commitment to solid journalism, creative entertainment and to the LSU campus. Contact us at rbrumley@tigertv. tv for any show suggestions, questions or comments. You, the viewer, are always what’s most important to us.

Air Force general sets example for secularism THE DAMN HAMM TAYLOR HAMMONS Columnist As a Christian, it offends me to hear American soldiers are discriminated against because of their beliefs – or rather, non-beliefs. These days, instead of wasting money on lifeless punching bags, the military uses its own atheist soldiers to stand upright while their so-called comrades polish their fists on the faces of American citizens, figuratively speaking. I suppose our military thought this would be an economical use of resources. Perhaps this is why Gen. Norton A. Schwartz, chief of staff of the Air Force, issued an unequivocal mandate ensuring the separation of church and state within the Air
Force earlier this month. This is great progress for our military, but the other branches need to follow suit. Religion is obviously a sensitive topic in the military: death invades the minds of soldiers, and many seek the Bible for comfort. Therefore, an atheist could threaten that feeling of comfort. Many Christians could empathize, but this mentality is destructive to the well-being of our nation — not to mention the welfare of our atheist soldiers. What I do not understand is the mistreatment. In 2008, The New York Times reported a case of mistreatment in the Army. Spc. Jeremy Hall organized a gathering for non-religious soldiers like himself. A few minutes later, Maj. Freddy J. Welborn yelled at Hall and the other attendees for “not
holding up the Constitution” and “going against what the founding fathers, who were Christians, wanted for America.” One would expect a man who leads men into battle to be more intelligent. The First Amendment clearly grants our citizens the freedom of religion or no religion – ol’ Freddy didn’t even have to read past the first one. In the end, Hall’s fighting in Iraq was cut short after receiving continuous threats from fellow soldiers. Hall is not alone when it comes to discriminating against atheists in the military. According to secular.org, over the past five years there have been at least 20 “separate incidents in which military personnel have been harassed, discriminated against and coercively proselytized.”
This is why separating church and state in the military is so essential. It would allow citizens the chance to determine for themselves if hating on atheists is right or wrong. Obviously, the military believes it’s right in some demented way – with the exception of the Air Force. The Air Force is leading the way with Gen. Schwartz’s mandate. An updated Section 2.11 to the Air Force Instruction (AFI) states, “Leaders at all levels must balance constitutional protections for an individual’s free exercise of religion or other personal beliefs and the constitutional prohibition against governmental establishment of religion.” Frankly, I’m all for the Air Force running this country. I have no doubt its citizens would have more freedom.
But I must give the military some kudos for the progress it has made thus far. In the early ’90s, Muslims, Buddhists and Hindus were finally allowed to serve alongside Christians and Jews, and just recently homosexuals were allowed to serve openly. Now it’s time atheists receive the same treatment. We need to advance past the negative stigma of atheism. We need to see people for who they are, not what they believe. We need to be thoughtful, not hateful. Taylor Hammons is a 19-year-old mass communication sophomore from Atlanta. Contact Taylor Hammons at firstname.lastname@example.org; Twitter: @TDR_thammons
Budget sequester will disastrously affect employment SHARE THE WEALTH JAY MEYERS Columnist Earlier this month, nearly 13 million Americans were unemployed — that is, actively seeking work but unable to find any, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition, 8.2 million Americans were involuntarily working part-time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job. It’s undeniable that the unemployment statistics referred to above are the main reasons why our recovery from the “Great Recession” has been so prolonged and why our economy remains in a fragile state. And it looks like things are about to take a turn for the worse. Under the Budget Control Act, most federal programs face an across-the-board cut in January 2013 if Congress does not enact a plan before then to reduce the national debt by $1.2 trillion. Given this fact, one might expect President Obama and members of Congress to be doing everything in their power to pass legislation that would avoid the infamous budget sequester — approximately $109 billion in spending cuts set to take effect in January of next year would have a dramatically negative impact on employment and our economy in general. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The sequester was initially intended to be an incentive for the deficit reduction super-committee created in August of last year to reach a collective, bipartisan deal
to reduce the deficit over the next decade. It was never actually meant to take effect. The sequester was designed to be such an unpalatable option that both Democrats and Republicans would be forced into a bipartisan agreement that accumulated $1.5 trillion in savings over the next decade. In typical fashion, however, the committee failed to reach an agreement. The first year’s sequester is scheduled to start in January with a $109 billion cut evenly divided between defense spending and nondefense spending. Essentially, our elected leaders have chosen to follow in the path of Europe and pursue the very same failed policies of government austerity that produced higher unemployment and did nothing to repair the fiscal imbalances it intended to fix. The Bipartisan Policy Center estimates in a recent report that sequestration would result in defense and non-defense-related job losses for more than one million American workers in 2013 and 2014. And combined with the January expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts, the first year of automatic spending reductions could send the U.S. right back into recession beginning in 2013, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. With the threat of sequestration looming, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned a Senate Appropriations subcommittee earlier this summer that allowing the automatic defense cuts to take place will have far-reaching effects beyond a constrained military. “That kind of sequestration cut across the board will have a serious impact, not only on our men

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., discusses defense spending cuts Aug. 13 at the College of Southern Nevada’s Cheyenne campus.
and women in uniform, but our personnel and the contractors that serve the Defense establishment,” Panetta told the Senate subcommittee. Findings from the House Armed Services Committee outlined how the sequester would affect the military in concrete terms: We would have the smallest Air Force in our history, the smallest Navy since 1915, the smallest ground force since before World War II and the smallest civilian workforce in the Defense Department’s history. Put simply, sequestration amounts to taking a meat cleaver to defense spending resulting in less training for U.S. troops in Afghanistan, significantly less funding for equipment and machinery,
substantial hiring freezes and even the potential for denial of medical services to veterans. But sequestration won’t apply only to defense. It would have a calamitous impact on nearly all federal social programs that promote and protect the middle class in this country — everything from education to job training, medical research, child care, worker safety, food safety, national parks and border security. Take what Education Department Secretary Arne Duncan had to say about the sequester’s effect on education: “The sequestration will put at risk all that we’ve accomplished in education and weaken programs that help children, serve families, send young people and adults to college and make the
middle-class American dream possible.” Slashing spending while our economy still recovers is a tremendously destructive policy that would further hamper economic growth and weaken our already struggling job market. President Obama and Congress must embrace a spirit of compromise in finding a better, fairer solution to the sequester before it’s too late.
