Snow removal serves as window into Upcoming state school funding issues

Since the beginning of the spring 2014 semester, KU and surrounding schools have seen what seems to be a record number of canceled or delayed classes due to snow. This winter is sure to carry with it one of the highest snowfall totals in recent memory, with more snowstorms coming before spring fully hits. With these unusually high snowfall totals, students are becoming increasingly frustrated with KU’s handling of plowing parking lots and sidewalks. Many commuters are dependent on the local roads and parking lots being plowed to get to and from their classes, and huge patches of ice still have not been cleared up around campus sidewalks. Student Government Board (SGB) president Nick Imbesi believes, Nick Imbesi sits at his desk in the SGB office. Nick Carson, News Editor however, that most students have misplaced their blame for the sub-par conditions, and He also said that he has seen no effort from was quick to blame Gov. Tom Corbett.

KU SGB fights final exam schedule change University wants to shorten final exam schedule for second consecutive semester By Nick Carson News Editor

For the second semester in a row, Student Government Board (SGB) president Nick Imbesi finds himself and his office fighting to keep KU’s final exam schedule longer than the university would like. Last semester, KU and the SGB worked out the current schedule, which lasts a full school week, despite the fact that the university wanted to join many others who have finals in just four days of a week. Imbesi said that a four-day finals schedule is just too much for students in the stressful time that is the end of the semester. “I don’t think it’s fair to our students to try to cram the same amount of finals into less days when it’s already stressful for our students,” Imbesi said. Imbesi also said that he is confused at KU’s attempt to once again shorten students finals schedule, mainly because of the little time that has passed between KU’s last proposed exam schedule and this current proposal. “We fought against a four-day final exam schedule, and we won for this semester and now they’re see FINALS page 3

The Edge at Kutztown will be expanding across the street from its current location in order to keep up with the growing off campus housing demand for KU students. The Edge property manager Vance Whetstone-Yacomes said that the expansion will include a full size gym, swimming pool and cottage style housing. He said this expansion is necessary in order to keep up with the off campus housing competition such as Advantage Point, which is set to start leasing in the upcoming school year.” The growing competition for student housing in Kutztown has Whetstone-Yacomes determined to keep up with the other properties and draw students into the Edge with its new accommodations. Whetstone-Yacomes said the details of the expansion are still in the works and there is no final word on what exactly they will look like. However, the pool and fully equipped gym have been confirmed. The price is not currently set, but is definitely going to increase due to the new amenities. The Edge’s new competitor is advantage Point, which will be a little closer to campus than the Edge and will be next to Golden Bear Village South. Advantage Point will have a spa-like pool and three apartment buildings five stories high. There will be a patio area furnished with a grill, outdoor volleyball court and a clubhouse. “A main concern for on campus

as well as off campus housing however is the drop in enrollment. Enrollment was set for 10,600 this year, but projected for 10,000 or less next year. This could cause a serious decrease in demand for housing. Due to this, The Edge plans to make the expansion a phase construction and add on when there is more demand for housing,” said WhetstoneYacomes. Director of Housing, Residence life and Dining Services, Kent Dahlquist, said he thinks the off-campus housing for students would be a wonderful opportunity. He also said that new construction is a lot safer and will create a better living environment for students. Although there has been new construction and more off-campus housing, there has not been a significant decrease in on campus housing. Dahlquist said, “Students are actually moving back oncampus for safety reasons.” The lack of security in offcampus housing such as The Edge seems to create an uneasiness in students. Freshman Gabby Noto said, “I would love to live in nice new apartments off campus like The Edge, but security issued worry me and I feel like they won’t be monitored as well as on campus.” Junior Heather Kovacs, a current resident at the Edge and said, “I love living here and the new amenities like the gym and pool sound amazing. I wish they would be done while I was attending school here still.” Freshman Joshua Martinez said, “I am excited to see what offcampus housing has to offer and I think the amenities and freedom in the off-campus housing are great.

Wholesome Food Cafe & Catering brings healthy food options to Kutztown community K

Healthy options becoming more popular among dining services By Ellyn Kershner Contributing Writer

For Pam Moseley, owner of Wholesome Food Café & Catering, eating healthy is a “way of life.” Moseley opened the café, one of the newest additions to the Kutztown community, on Aug. 8, 2013. Students, faculty, and members of the community are highly interested in this new venue, which offers a unique outlet for healthy eaters. Moseley saw a need for natural foods in the Kutztown community, where healthy food venues are lacking. Second Nature, Global Libations, and Subway are three healthier food venues popular in the community, but are still limited in what they offer. Wholesome Food Café took the place of A Taste of Crepes on Main Street. The café is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Healthy food is a very important part of the Moseley family’s business. The organic process begins at the family’s farm, where

the meat they raise is grass fed Angus beef. Moseley said, “We try to incorporate organics and natural meats and produce in our personal daily diet.” Café customers vary from students, members of the community, vegetarians, and more. Although there is no specific target audience for the café, “the student population is definitely an added bonus.” Moseley said. One returning customer, Jacob Riddle, a 28 year old resident of Kutztown, commented on the café in the community. “It definitely filled a gap for natural, actually whole foods, as opposed to the sloppy, greasy foods that are typical of college towns,” he said. His favorite food on the menu is the Pesto Chicken Wrap for $6.50. Owners of the Firefly Bookstore in Kutztown frequently eat at Wholesome Food. “We are very happy to have another great restaurant for lunches in downtown Kutztown,” said coowner Matthew Williams. Student organizations are showing interest in the new venue as well. Kutztown’s VEG Club was happy to hear about the new café, which accommodates their need for non-animal products.

President, Lou Ryan, was slightly disappointed in the café’s menu, but added Wholesome Food Café to the “VEG Guide” of vegan and vegetarian friendly restaurants. The people of Kutztown are expressing a growing enthusiasm for healthy food venues and concern for their personal nutrition. One student athlete, Andrew Wesner, said, “Eating healthy is essential to every athlete, because if you eat good, you feel good, and will perform better.” Wesner is a junior business major and member of the university’s wrestling team. Scott Bradshaw, a health and wellness professor at Kutztown, commented on the campus’s limited healthy options. “Most seem very high in carbs” he said. Bradshaw believes that students can eat healthy “with a little planning and some basic education.” In the future, Moseley would like to hold dinners once a month and donate the proceeds to a local charity. Most of all, Moseley enjoys meeting new people and cultivating relationships. According to the family’s positive feedback from residents, students and businesses, the community is happy to have them.

trying to push forward it again and I’m not really sure why because our stance has not changed,” Imbesi said. Imbesi also said that one of the biggest areas of confusion between the four and five-day final exam schedule is a recent policy for students with multiple finals on the same day. Imbesi said his office enacted a policy in which students can have finals rescheduled if they have three or more finals on one day, or if they have two or more finals scheduled at one time. Imbesi believes that this policy helps relieve some of the stress that final exams can bring, and is not sure if this policy can remain in place with a four-day schedule. When asked if the proposed schedule would interfere with this stress relieving policy, Imbesi said “I don’t know the answer to that question. I’m going to see exactly how this is going to work out, but I can’t see how that would work out.”

Overcrowding at Rec Center ongoing issue for KU students

Multiple activity options not enough to prevent tightly-packed facilities By Cole Davidheiser Contributing Writer

The recreational center (Rec Center) on KU’s campus is one of its most widely used buildings. However, according to students, there is an overcrowding issue within the facility that needs addressing. Junior Derek Stefano said, “As a freshman, I learned a serious problem at the Rec Center is overcrowding, and that’s what drove me to come to the gym outside of Kutztown for the past two years.” The staff in previous semesters took tallies of students using different areas of the gym every hour. This semester however, the staff is now looking for large groups in particular areas at a time. The facility is open Monday through Thursday from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Fridays. This gives students a wide range

of time to make it to the facilities, but with classes being held at most of those hours, most students are only free between the hours of 4 to 9 p.m. and the problem has still persisted. “Consequently the busiest hours are between 4 to 9 p.m.,” said Amy Sandt, director of

recreational services. “These times make a one hour workout easily prolonged into a two hour deal,” said Matthew Frizalone, a senior. The Rec Center has added an outdoor basketball court, more group exercise class opportunities to students during busy hours

and has changed the rock wall climbing hours. Sandt said that these additions have all had an impact on the overcrowding. “These options seem to be growing in popularity among students,” Sabdt said. Frizalone however disagreed.

“While the new hours on the rock wall are nice and the basketball courts replaced the eye sore that once stood, this is not solving the overcrowding issue,” he said. “I think some of these aspects of the changes made here at the gym cause the Rec Center to be more crowded. This issue has caused my friends and I to find alternative times to come to make sure I can get the machines I need,” said Zachary Mitchell, a staff member of the Rec Center. The staff members sit at the desk and monitor the number of students who swipe their ID cards to get access into the gym. They then use those numbers and compare them to previous records to learn if overcrowding is going up or down. “The numbers of students using the Rec Center are actually down compared to previous semesters, but the issue of overcrowding has surfaced to the staff,” says Sandt. “The Rec Center staff is constantly looking for new ways to battle this issue and always open to new ideas of how to overcome it,” she said.

Inexpensive Valentine’s Day ideas on campus for couples, long distance relationships, and singles K

By Ashley Fries Opinions Editor

COUPLES

Campus may not seem like the most romantic place to spend your Valentine’s Day, but with a passionate touch, anything can become a romantic time with the person you care about. Here are some ideas to make your Valentine’s Day on campus special. Bake something with or for your special someone. Head down to Rite Aid and pick up a box of brownie mix or like product and spend time baking together or as a surprise. Buy some cheap flowers. Across from the Wells Fargo next to the Strand Movie Theater on Main Street, there is a flower shop with lovely flowers at a reasonable cost. If you cant afford it, make some homemade flowers. Just Google how to make homemade flowers, choose the one you like the best and go from there! Go see a movie at the Strand. If you have Netflix, Hulu, or like service, you can also jump on there. Find a movie you will both enjoy, cuddle in with a nice blanket, some popcorn and some hot chocolate and enjoy! Eat at home. Either make a meal together or make it as a surprise for them. You can find plenty of cheap meal ideas for college students online. If you are able, I recommend buying candles to really set the scene for romance. If you have a few bucks to spare, eat dinner cheap at local restaurants. Airport Dinner has good yet cheap food. Go out for coffee at one of the local shops, or if you are of age, go out for a Valentine’s Day drink. You can also cook dinner at home, and then go out for desert. If you have a little money for presents, you can pick up a bunch

ENDING NOTE FROM THE EDITOR

Valentine’s Day can be tricky at college, but it can be done. Furthermore, it can be done without breaking the bank and without havening to leave our little home of Kutztown. In the end, consider what you love most about your partner or yourself and go from there. Just make it personal, put thought into it, have fun, and be safe. Valentine’s Day is truly the holiday where the gift comes from the heart. Happy Valentine’s Day to all from The Keystone staff!

KU winter New bill threatens separation of church and state safety K

By Kevin Gareau Contributing Writer

By Brenna Everdale Assistant Opinions Editor

On Thursday, Feb. 8, the KU Office of University Relations sent out an email apologizing for the hazardous campus conditions. Despite the hard work of the snow and ice control teams, several areas of the campus could not be cleared in time for class. The result was a very dangerous and slow walk to and from class on Thursday and Friday. In the mass email, the Office of University Relations admitted the main pathways had been insufficiently cleared and instructed students to use the ADA accessible walkways, effectively redirecting the majority of foot traffic to these routes. This is by no means a perfect solution, as it creates congestion along these pathways, making it harder for students to get to class. These paths are also longer, adding to the time it takes to get to class. Thus, many students will naturally be tempted to take the more dangerous routes in order to get to class on time.

Snow on Main street

Kimberly Marandola, Photography Editor

According to Kutztown’s policy on Weather Related Schedules, “The decision to cancel, close, delay openings, or close early is made by the president of the university in consultation with the provost and a designated vice president.” Perhaps in the future this winter, President Cevallos will cancel or delay classes if the ice cannot be effectively cleared in time. We must all remember that rough winters are simply a reality of living in Pennsylvania, and even if the president failed to make the right call, nobody can be blamed for bad weather. So remember to take responsibility for your own safety this winter by sticking to the ADA accessible walkways and reporting problem areas on campus to the Facilities Work Control Center at 610-683-1594 or wcc@kutztown. edu. If you keep a car on campus, remember to keep a shovel in the trunk in case you get stuck in the parking lots. You can even borrow one from both MSU and the Housing and Residence Life Office.

A new bill has passed that will require most public buildings to have the words “In God We Trust” displayed. I am a humanist and do not believe in a supreme being whether it be Yahweh, Allah, Jehovah, Vishnu, or Zeus. So, not only am I opposed to the words “In God We Trust,” but also any statement that gives legitimacy to a deity. This country is one founded on secular principles, and the display of such statements as “In God We Trust” violates our separation of church and state. Furthermore, why are we discussing this? Why is this important? We should be focusing on something more useful like the

tion reform in fifty years. NPR also reports that the Republican stance on this was that the bill should go through. Why? Because, according to Virginia Representative Randy Forbes, “it is appropriate for Members of Congress and our nation - like our predecessors – to firmly declare our trust in God.” Our president, on the other hand, has stated that he thinks the country’s motto is actually what it has been really since its inception: “E pluribus unum.” or “Out of many, one.” That is a statement of unity we can all get behind because we are all human and any one of us can identify with those words. As a union, we are a nation of many nationalities, ethnicities and lifestyles. We do not need belief in a god to bring us together.

KU Presents! hosts children’s theatre

Local children get comfortable acting in two shows on Feb. 15 By Emily Leayman Editor in Chief

After only a week of rehearsals, over 50 of the children from the community will participate in Missoula Children’s Theatre’s “Hansel and Gretel” on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 2 and 4 p.m. in Schaeffer Auditorium. According to KU Presents! Director Robin Zaremski, tickets for either show can be purchased for $12 in the KU Presents! Box Office this week during the rehearsals from 4 to 8 p.m., the day of the show or online at kutztownpresents.org. The process started when two directors from Missoula held an audition on Monday, Feb. 10. The children who signed up went through auditions from 4 to 6 p.m. The Missoula directors “had it down to a science,” said Zaremski, having children do exercises such as certain casting challenges. By the time the group took a break at 6 p.m., they had the cast list and were ready to practice. The children were put into groups based on their age, according to Zaremski. Older children got speaking roles, while younger children were more likely in

groups. The cast also rehearses at different times from Tuesday to Friday, depending on their parts. The technical rehearsal is on Friday. The Sunshine Players, a KU student group that organizes performances with children, is assisting with the rehearsals and show. Johanna Forte, part of the KU Presents! Cultural Arts Committee, and advisor of the Sunshine Players, wanted the group to help out with the show. Forte, also director of the KU Honors Program, got Honors students to volunteer to supervise the children alongside the Sunshine Players. Honors students will also usher, as they did for a past KU Presents! program, Ensemble Español. Missoula Children’s Theatre came to KU before with a performance of “The Princess and the Pea” in January, 2009. Zaremski said they are coming back because their last show was very successful. KU Presents! is recording the show for parents. Zaremski believes it is a good program to get children out of the house in the winter and is a “no pressure” way of getting them comfortable with performing and being onstage. She hopes that many students, along with the Sunshine Players and volunteers, will come out to see the production that was produced in only a week.

Artist profile: Nick Stover

KU junior shares his love of art on campus By Megan Bratton

Assistant A&E Editor

Junior Nick Stover said he first applied to KU’s art program because his high school teachers recommended Kutztown’s respected communication design department. He is continuing his love for art and has been a featured artist in the McFarland Student Union building. His current project that is being featured was created for his Illustration course. The project was to illustrate a person and passenger who are traveling on a voyage. “I decided to depict a sitter on the voyage through life that is embracing infinite intelligence,” Stover said. “The digital painting

combines a photorealistic and a painterly style to show the struggle between achieving infinite intelligence and the imperfections of mankind.” Stover said that he first started to enjoy art when he was in elementary school. He became active in it and continued to take art classes throughout high school. He is a communication design major with concentrations in graphic design and illustration. The communication design program pushes students by assigning challenging projects and setting deadlines. Stover said his favorite professor is Rick Salafia. “His class was my very first class I had here,” he said. “His immense knowledge of art, design and conceptual thinking is what sparked my passion for design.” Though Stover is enjoying his artwork during college, he contin-

ues to look into the future. After he graduates, he plans to move to New York City to search for a career in graphic design. “I would ultimately like to work in a small design studio,” he said. Art professors provide students with a wide variety of projects to assure that each student is gaining a broad education, as well as practicing their preferred skills. Stover said that he tries to make conceptual design work that is specific to who he is designing for. “I have been enjoying using experimental techniques in my design to create meaningful and unique pieces,” he said. To gain professional experience, Stover is a monitor in the print lab in Sharadin Art Building. He is also the assistant for the communication design department. Stover became an art major so that he could wake up every day and

express his creativity. “We get to use art and design to solve problems, which is exciting to me,” he said. While he loves his major, he finds it stressful at times because there is always work to do. “It is time consuming, but I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else with my life,” said Stover. His favorite project is the conceptually illustrated book that he

created for Ralph Waldo Emerson’s, “Nature.” “I am a huge Emerson fan, and I enjoyed depicting his text with visuals. It [the book] included a lot of research and experimentation, which I love about the design process,” said Stover. For younger students interested in an art major, Stover said to work hard, find inspiration in everything, make meaningful work and find a mentor to learn from.

K ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Local band spotlight: Keep Out of Reach

KU alumni continue their passion for music By Haley Bianco Arts & Entertainment Editor

Three former KU students formed a band while attending school and are still rocking out. Since graduating, the rock based band, Keep Out of Reach, has expanded and now includes Pat Day on drums and percussion, Nygel Flaherty as the lead vocalist, Dylan Flaherty as lead guitarist and back up vocalist, Kyle Schreiber as bass and vocalist and Joseph Tomlin on piano, organ

and harmonica. The band credits their musical influences to Tom Petty, The Black Keys, The Beatles, U2 and Kings of Leon. Keep Out of Reach considers their songs as mainly rock/ alternative, but they also experiment with other genres, including blues, country and folk music. “We quickly built a reputation for having a very diverse sound,” said band member, Dylan Flaherty. “People have told us after shows that they enjoyed the fact that our originals never sound the same and that we make the covers our own.” The band is open-minded

The fact that these folks can think so creatively and innovatively is one of their greatest assets,” stated astrology.com. The energy around an Aquarius is strong and vibrant, which is emphasized by their stern approach to accomplishing tasks in their own creative, offbeat way. “I feel like some people don’t fit their horoscopes at all, but I really am the epitome of an Aquarius,” said KU senior, Geena Wallace.

Men’s basketball gets revenge on Golden Rams Kutztown defeats West Chester for the first time since 2010 By Lee Finkelstein Staff Writer

On Saturday Feb. 8, Kutztown’s men’s basketball team defeated West Chester for the first time since 2010 with a final score of 73-70. Freshman point guard Fred Dukes IV, who usually comes off

snagged four rebounds. Connolly shot 3-for-4 from the three-point line, and was 100 percent from the free throw line hitting 8-for-8. Six of them came in the final 15 seconds. His 19 points are the most since he scored 20 in the season-opener on Nov. 15. He also pulled down six boards. “It took us a while to recover from a poor start, but I thought we controlled the tempo in the second half,” head coach Bernie Driscoll said. “Ryan and Fred had great games for us tonight.”

the bench, started his first game of the season and had a career high 18 points. Dukes and sophomore orward Ryan Connolly had a combined 37 points in the game. After defeating West Chester, currently in second place, Kutztown is now tied for fifth place in the PSAC East with Millersville. Kutztown overcame a 16-point deficit and did not lead until the last 1:19. Being 18-for-18 from the free throw line in the second half was a key factor in their come-from-behind victory. KU made 26 of its final 27 free throws to seal the deal. Dukes was 6-for-6 from the stripe, and drained a clutch three-pointer with the shot clock expiring that gave Kutztown its first lead of the game with 1:19 to play. In 33 minutes, he dished out a game-high four assists and

Kutztown’s defense held West Chester to just 33 points in the second half. They trailed by a game-high 16 points with 3:37 to play in the first half. West Chester then made two free throws with two seconds left as KU trailed 3729 at halftime. With 2:23 to play, Elijah Jackson made two free throws to bring KU within two (62-60) for the first time of the second half. West Chester continued to make quick driving layups but continued to foul and Kutztown answered by making both free throws. Point guard Austin Beidelman scored 11 points while fellow freshman Josh Johnson led the team in rebounding with seven. The Golden Bears will continue their road trip on Wednesday, Feb. 12 when they face off against Cheyney University at 8 p.m.

Andre Reed `05 Selected to Pro Football Hall of Fame

Former Golden Bear first ever to be inducted into football immortality By Bryan Salvadore Sports Information Director

Kutztown University graduate Andre Reed was selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. He will be inducted on Saturday, August 2, 2014. Reed was one of seven members selected for induction into the Hall of Fame.   Reed’s journey to immortality passed through Kutztown University, where he was one of the most prolific wide receivers in small college football history. He wore number 88, and is the first player in Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) history to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.   “On behalf of the Kutztown University community, I want to congratulate Andre and his family on this prestigious honor,” Kutztown University president F. Javier Cevallos said. “With his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Andre will forever

be remembered as one of the best ever to play at the highest level of professional football. It is also a special night for Kutztown University and Golden Bear Athletics.  We are very proud to be associated with our very own pro football hall of famer.”     A 1991 Kutztown University Athletics Hall of Fame inductee, he was named to the NCAA Division II Football Hall of Fame in 2002. In 2004, Reed was inducted into the Lehigh Valley Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. In October, he was added to the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame. Reed was a four-year letterman at Kutztown from 1981-84, making 142 career catches for 2,002 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Women’s basketball falls to West Chester

Golden Bears unable to overcome second half run By Zach Payne Staff Writer

The Kutztown University women’s basketball team fell to West Chester University by the score of 81-65 on Sat. Feb. 8, at Hollinger Fieldhouse in West Chester. The Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Eastern Division matchup was a close game for most of the first half, but the Golden Bears were ultimately unable to regain momentum after a late first half run by the Golden Rams. Heading into the second half, West Chester (16-6, 11-1 PSAC East) extended its 8-0 run to an 11-0 run with a three-pointer. From that point on, Kutztown (714, 4-7 PSAC East) played from behind, and they were never able to pull the game to within one possession. The Golden Bears narrowed the deficit to four points a few times in the second half, but they couldn’t get over the hump. An 8-0 run by West Chester with under six minutes to play in the

game essentially sealed the deal. West Chester earned the win Kutztown standout Advia on Saturday by controlling the Campbell put together another rebound game.

Remaining KU Wrestling Schedule

By Alex Slocum Sports Information Graduate Assistant

The Kutztown University wrestling program maintained its third slot in the newest edition of the NCAA Division II Super Region I Rankings released Tuesday afternoon. There were no adjustments to the team rankings from the poll released Jan. 28.
