The NSCS Board of Trustees appointed Beverly Russell to serve as interim director of King Library beginning on Dec. 4, 2012 with a starting salary of $29,982.14.

Chadron State College and its former Head Football Coach, Bill O’Boyle, publicly admitted Wednesday to “major” NCAA “infrac “infractions” that occurred as early as 2007 and continued through 2011. The Nebraska State College System posted on its website the college’s 33-page response and O’Boyle’s 25-page response to the NCAA’s “Notice of Allegations” surrounding football fundraising activities and a lack of institutional oversight. The posting of both documents came five days after The Eagle requested a statement and copies of the college’s response. The NCAA issued its notice in September 2012, alleging four major policy violations. In addition, the NCAA required that the college and O’Boyle respond by Dec. 17, 2012. After receiving a four-day extension from the NCAA, both submitted responses dated Dec. 21, 2012. “Our attorney, Scott Tompsett [of Stinson Morrison Hecker, LLP., Kansas City, Mo.], had an extension approved by the NCAA,” NSCS General Counsel and Vice Chancellor for Employee Rela Relations Kristin Petersen said Friday. The NCAA made four main allegations, each accompanied by from two to six specific alleged violations. Generally, CSC’s and O’Boyle’s statements agreed that violations occurred, but each dis disagreed with some of the specifics. The NCAA’s first main point contained six specific allegations of rules violations concerning a lack of institutional control and “im “impermissible accounts at off-campus financial institutions.” see INFRACTIONS, Page 3

Senate seeks foreign language option

Jan. 14 Meeting

Sara Labor


Lifestyles Editor

The idea of bringing a foreign language program was brought forth. Some key points in the discussion were as follows: ■ Where the program would be available to students. ■ If taking it would count toward students credits. ■ Would there be more than one language accessible to learn.

SENATOR APPOINTED Jorge Flores, sophomore of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, was appointed as a Senator-at-Large.

SENATE SEEKS PRINTING OPTION The current copy-printer in the Senate office will be removed in April; therefore, the discussion of buying or leasing a new one was brought up. It would be cheaper to lease a copy-printer and after five years it would be paid off, rather than buying one for roughly $10,000.

Student Senate discussed foreign language programs, and swore in a new senator at its Monday meeting. T.J. Thomson, vice president, said that Coordinator of Student Activities Laure Sinn talked with him about buying digital licenses for foreign language learning software. Thomson asked for the Senate’s opinion, and said that, if licenses were purchased, the software would most likely be installed on computers in the Student Center. Spike Jordan, senator at large, asked if there would be a way to use the software to get academic credit. Hannah Clark, senator of liberal arts, said that the limited number of computers in the student center might limit the number of students who could use the software. Clark suggested that the software be available all over campus, perhaps in an online portal, or at least in the library. Tiffani Roelle, senator of liberal arts, volunteered to help with the project of getting foreign language software on campus. Jorges Flores, who petitioned to join Senate, was sworn in on Monday. “As students, it is our responsibility to get involved on campus,” Flores said. In other matters, Thomson said that

ask your representatives:

“What changes are you planning on making on campus this year?” “We still want the point of sale systems in the Grille and Cafeteria so students and employees can use credit cards to pay for purchases. We also just distributed a survey to better gauge students’ wants.” – T.J. Thomson, Vice President, Student Senate

Weekly Calendar: Jan. 17–23 - Late night at the Pit Rap Battle, 9 p.m. SC Pit


the multi-function printer in the senate office will be removed, and senators discussed whether to buy a new printer or lease a printer. Thomson said that it would cost $10,000-15,000 to buy a new printer, but Sinn said the lease would be about $179 a month. Thomson said he would research the matter and get more concrete price options for the body. Molly Wedan, High Rise senator, said that the High Rise basement now has all the exercise equipment it will be getting. Wedan said that Tami Fosher, residence life programs manager, said there are plans to get locker type cubbies for students to put their personal belongings in. Also, the weight machines that are currently located in the High Rise Basement will probably be moved due to the fact that they are not very functional, according to Wedan. “High Rise is meant to be for cardio,” Wedan said. Dani Buckley, CAB president, said that CAB approved money for free bowling night, which will be Saturday, and for free movie night, which will be Sunday. Doors open for free movie night at 6:45 p.m. Buckley also said that the annual Martin Luther King Day walk would be 1 p.m. Monday. The walk will begin at Common Cents and end at Memorial Hall.

The college responded that it “agrees that most of the information is substantially correct and agrees that violations occurred.” O’Boyle agreed that a violation occurred, but disagreed, that, despite making deposits and writing checks, he didn’t maintain the “C-Club Account,” one of four accounts involved in the NCAA’s investigation. The second of the main allegations states that O’Boyle provided misleading information to the institution and that he provided inappropriate benefits to prospective and enrolled studentathletes. The college agreed that a violation occurred, but noted “the information upon which the allegations are based was gathered during the investigation conducted by the College and the enforcement staff.” O’Boyle accepted blame for improper recruiting benefits, lack of maintaining supporting documentation, and for the inaccuracy of some of his initial responses. He further stated that he should have fully disclosed all accounts, but disputes the claim that he intentionally provided misleading information. The third allegation states that O’Boyle failed to promote an atmosphere of NCAA compliance by maintaining impermissible off-campus accounts and depositing the proceeds from the “Last Chance for Glory” golf tournament in those accounts.

Benediction creates friction


You can’t waive broke


iscussion in the newsroom this week centered on a common complaint. While we admit that the rhetoric is getting stale, we can’t help but be infatuated with the obscure costs that leave you with nothing but lintlined pockets. We’d all like to think that our money isn’t being squandered and most of the fees aren’t necessarily all that hidden. A quick review of the account activity tab on MyCSC reveals where most of your funds are going this semester. A lot of the fees listed provide for your health and comfort during your time here on campus. If you don’t feel like paying them, chances are you’re not taking the time to enjoy the wonderful accommodations. Look at the technology fee, and ask yourself the last time you said “I hate printing something for free in a campus computer lab.” Or this Saturday night when you’re not out bowling for free, sit alone in your dorm room and silently curse the student activity fee. What are some of the costs that you might not be planning on paying for? Did you know that some internships are treated as online classes, and that most tuition waivers don’t apply to these courses? The cost of these programs pay for Career and Academic Planning Services personnel to validate your portfolio and, give you the credits you’ve earned. However, for those of us that rely on the tuition waivers to make it by, we’re getting short changed. We understand that the college has to recoup in order to pay the hardworking professionals that sift through our paperwork, but why do we have to pay for it out of pocket? For a three-credit-hour internship that’s required to graduate, and the 50 hours of often unpaid labor it takes to equal one credit hour, those costs quickly sour the experience.

Students are charged for multiple fees, some of which they may not be aware of. Photo Illustration by Hannah Clark

ecently, Louis Giglio, the pastor of Passion City Church in Atlanta, Ga., withdrew from an invitation to offer a prayer at President Obama’s inauguration. The reason for his withdrawal was the recent discovery of a sermon preached by Giglio about 15 years ago in which he condemned the act of homosexuality. The discovery of Giglio’s stand has resulted in much outrage within certain interest groups. Many people saw this as déjà vu because of a similar controversy that happened at the last inauguration. Four years ago, Rick Warren (famous author and pastor of Saddleback Church in Southern California) followed through with his involvement in the inauguration ceremony even though he holds the same beliefs that Giglio does.

Much of the media has asked why that standard. The Bible says that Washington is helpless to find clergy- many things are sins, including homomen who do not offend. “Is there no sexuality, which should never be put on religious leader who agrees with ho- a pedestal (though, sadly, many church leaders do). mosexuality?” some may say. The Bible also says a thing or two The problem with this world is we need to catch up with the homosexu- about showing love to all people, als. They were able to find Giglio’s something that many church leaders “flaw,” but I guarantee he has many and homosexuals alike forget to practice. more. My question We should have had “Either the Bible is is why do we bea group of prostitutes outraged at Giglio’s true, or it is false. You lieve the immoral Biblical stand against cannot pick the parts traits condemned in the Bible like fornication.

When the Bible refers to homo- You cannot pick the parts that you like sexuality, it also reveals several other and disregard the ones that may be ofoffenses (adultery, incest, fornication fensive. This would be like your doctor just to name a few). The majority of us refusing to tell you that you have canwould say that the Bible is correct on cer in order to protect you from being heartbroken.

We believe the response toward homosexuality that honesty is a good trait or that it will always be one of condemnation, is wrong for a woman to cheat on her but it should also be one of love regardless of the situation. It is irresponsible husband. In the Bible we find God’s standard, of us to expect Giglio to not do the and we also find that none of us meet same.

Revoking rights is not the solution


he United States was designed as a representative republic; a nation established under a constitution that defines the purpose and limitations of the federal government and the freedoms provided to American citizens. But lately I’m concerned about how many politicians are forgetting their solemn oath to support and defend that constitution. Legislators continue to develop laws that are contradictory, and if losing liberty wasn’t bad enough, as a country we somehow have to function with freedoms that are simultaneously guaranteed and outlawed. The Sixth Amendment to the Franklin Annis Constitution guarantees American citizens the right to a speedy, public Columnist trial. However the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 provided the government power to detain U.S. Citizens indefinitely if they were believed to have supported terrorism. Sure, Sept. 11, 2001, rocked the country with fears of terrorism, but the government stripped away the freedoms of our citizens in order to provide the illusion of security, and now our Second Amendment is being attacked in a similar fashion. The new Assault Weapons Legislation proposed by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, seeks to capitalize on the emotional responses to recent tragedies in order to provide the illusion of security but strips rights away from citizens.

A Congressional Research Service report on Gun Control Legislation dated Nov. 14, 2012, found homicides with firearms decreased after the end of the last Assault Weapons Ban, and found no existing data to support the effectiveness of the last assault weapons ban to prevent crimes perpetrated with banned weapons. The last ban didn’t work, so why are we trying to ban them again? The summary of the new bill is Napoleonic; it outlaws modern semi-automatic rifles and pistols, and forces current owners to be documented and fingerprinted, requiring lawful citizens to prove they are innocent before they can continue to own certain types of firearms. The forefather’s views on firearms places the right to own military grade rifles in the hands of civilians so they can defend themselves and protect this country. During World War II, Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto advised against invading the United States because there would be, “a rifle behind every blade of grass.” So if Sen. Feinstein thinks that the Second Amendment only applies to an organized militia (such as the National Guard), she is terribly wrong. If modern semi-auto handguns and rifles should be banned, why not just repeal the Second Amendment all together? After all, only 47 out of 50 States have Second Amendment-type clauses in their state Constitutions. Maybe our politicians should focus on preserving the nation, rather than stripping away the rights of citizens.

BRUSH Artists amp up mixed media’s social messages Sara Labor Lifestyles Editor


“Artemis’ Presence,” a mixed media by Nita Kehoe falls in line with the multiple other medical artworks by Kehoe in the art show.

ne of my peers mentioned in a class that she was an art major. When my teacher asked what medium she worked in, she replied, “I’m more of an art admirer.” I’ve discovered that I am the art admirer. I have always envied those who have an eye to make art, who have the ability to put what they see on paper or in a sculpture, or, in some cases, on metal. The art show currently located in the Main Gallery of Memorial Hall, however, does not make me envious of the artist, because the real art is in the perception of the observer. Nita Kehoe, the sculpture teacher at the Central Wyoming College, uses her fascination with bodies to create amazing, thought-provoking pieces. Each piece seems to have something new to discover. Kehoe’s “Nature and Nurture” are by far some of the most intricate, eye opening pieces I’ve ever seen. “Nature and Nurture 1” had mostly pink pieces, while “Nature and Nurture 2” is made up of mostly blue pieces. The pink one was my personal favorite of the two. The more I looked at it, the more I discovered. For instance, at first glance, one might just see a bunch of pink things stuffed together. On closer inspection, the viewer might notice the pink Barbie shoe, or the cookie recipe in the corner. The viewer might notice that each intricate piece put on this sculpture, like the frosting tip, tells the story of a nurturing mother. The pink piece seems to demonstrate all those things which are expected of a woman: the femininity, the fashion, the baking. But its story seems to be so much more than that. A key on top of a chest gives one the idea of locking away one’s heart, and a closed eye in the corner gives a calming effect to the hodge-podge group of random things. Kehoe’s piece was very compelling to me. Its story was not an obvious one, instead, the story was meant to be told by the viewer. The viewer has an active part in creating the narrative of the piece. Another piece of Kehoe’s art that stood out was “Delicate Regret,” a piece whose story is much more obvious. A tongue sticks out between razor blades, and feathers cover the bottom. Kehoe says that naming pieces is a very important part of her process. “Delicate Regret” shows exactly what one would think it would: that a sharp tongue leads to regret. Two other artists, Matt Flint and Lonnie Slack, contribute to the exhibit. While Flint’s works did not capture my attention, Slack’s works stood out. Slack develops his photographs on thin pieces of metal. This gives each piece interesting coloring and a beautiful shine. Most of the photos are hauntingly beautiful. One of his most beautiful pieces is “Missing Friends,” a photo of three old, empty chairs. The third chair is darkened and set off in the background, unlike the other two, well-lit chairs. The empty, lost feeling leaves the viewer feeling nostalgic. I found myself wondering what friends were missing from the picture, why the chairs were empty. The photos really stay with a person, and it doesn’t hurt that, because they are developed on metal, the lighting and color change minutely with every angle you look at them from. It sunk in as I appreciated Kehoe and Slack’s pieces that I don’t have to be envious of their talent for art. My talent may not be in putting together amazing sculptures, or drawing, or painting. My talent, rather, is being able to see the stories that artists tell, and this exhibit tells the best stories.

Yellowjackets sting Eagles, 72-65, 77-61 Molly Wedan Sports Editor The Chadron State women’s and men’s basketball team only had one game last weekend against Black Hills State on Saturday. Unfortunately, the Yellowjackets came and conquered by winning both games. To start out the night, the women’s teams battled it out on the court. Chadron came out hot when Dallas Shaw, sophomore guard of Buffalo, Wyo., hit a three pointer 20 seconds into the game. Chadron then kept the lead until a good jump shot by Black Hill’s Bailey Kusser made the score 17-14 with 7:44 left to play. Both teams were neck-and-neck the rest of the

game, but Chelsey Biegler’s 28 points for BHS pulled them ahead for the 72-65 win. Kattie Ranta, junior guard of Rapid City, S.D., led for Chadron with 19 points but had help from Shaw with 14 points and Kate Simonton, sophomore guard of Bakersfield, Calif., with 13. Shaw also led the team in rebounds with 10. “For the most part we have a young and inexperienced team, the more situations we’re able to put ourselves in, like Saturday, the more growth and maturity you’ll see develop,” Head Coach Tim Connealy said. Later that night in the men’s game, action started out the same as the women’s when David Downey, junior guard of Scottsbluff, hit a three pointer, one of the four that he would

make later on. However, the Yellowjackets converted on a pair of turnovers with eight minutes to play, and ended the half 31-30. Coming out in the second half, Black Hills went on a 17-5 scoring drive in the first six minutes of play. A huge factor for Black Hills was their 14 offensive rebounds and 22 second chance points that led them to the 77-61 win. “We have to work on finishing more easy shots in the lane, and cut down on turnovers, we’re shooting ourselves in the foot with those,” Head Coach Brent Bargen said. Both teams travel to play New Mexico Highlands at Las Vegas, N.M., on Friday and Western New Mexico at Silver City, N.M. on Saturday.

‘Wolves take down

Barrett Browne Reporter Thursday, the Chadron State wrestling team captured their first home victory of the season with a 25-18 win over Colorado State University-Pueblo. This win gave the Eagles a 5-3 overall record and a 1-1 record in the RMAC. After the first eight matches, the record between the

two teams was tied at 4-4. But the ThunderWolves had an edge over the Eagles since they produced more pin points than them. Luckily, CSC went on to win the final three matches of the dual to capture a victory. Jordan Debus, junior of Mitchell, started the three match rally for the Eagles with a 5-2 decision victory at 184 pounds.

A bouquet is thrown, a garter is tossed, and scores of people line up for wedding cake. The lucky couple? Bryce Harrington, senior of Grand Island, and Justine Ackie, freshman of Phoenix, Ariz. More than 250 students joined Harrington and Ackie for the mock celebration Thursday night in CSC’s Student Center Ballroom as part of the “Wedding Crashers Bash” event. Event organizer Donald Hlava, senior of Gordon, said the party was intended to allow

participants to experience festivities usually encountered during weddings. The night featured dancing with wedding classics such as The Isley Brothers’s “Shout,” a limbo competition, and prizes for the best dressed attendees. Freddy Culp Jr., junior of Mililani Town, Hawaii, DJed the event alongside student members of the Night of Country Swing campus club. The party was co-sponsored by The Pit and the College Republicans Club. Photo by T.J. Thomson
