An annual Halloween-themed bash is set to take over the Short North this weekend.


For the first time in more than three decades, E. Gordon Gee isn’t a university president. He’s traded his ornate Bricker Hall office for a smaller room tucked away across the Oval that’s still awaiting its permanent decor, his grand university mansion replaced by a leased condo in the Short North. The downsize was a long time coming. “I was 36 when I became university president, and one of the things that struck me about this whole thing is when right after I announced my retirement, my daughter came home to visit me, because we were downsizing. I’ve lived in these megahomes for my whole life so I’ve never had to downsize, and we were talking and all the sudden I realized that she’s 36 and she’s the same age that I was when I became university president, and she’s having a wonderful middle part of her life … the truth of the matter is that I never did have that experience,” Gee said Monday in his first sit-down interview with The Lantern since his retirement. In his new role, he aims to be “the academic equivalent of Jack Hanna.” Gee has taken a step back from the top of OSU’s administration and

OSU President Emeritus E. Gordon Gee speaks during an interview with The Lantern Oct. 21. has done it “joyfully so.” He’s working on three books, one in particular about humor in higher education, teaching at Harvard next semester and working on a state higher education initiative. “My assistant tells me I need to

get a real job because (of) the fact that I’m busier than I’ve ever been in my life and enjoying it and having a wonderful time,” Gee said. But Gee has had a “couple of tough years, starting with our football issues,” he said, spanning from the

time of Tattoo-gate, which led to the resignation of former Buckeye football coach Jim Tressel after some OSU players were found to be receiving improper benefits. There’s never a right time to retire, he said, but when he decided that was what he wanted to do, he wanted to make the change swiftly. “I don’t like the long goodbye, so if I’m going to do something, I want to make the transition and do it,” he said. Gee announced he was retiring from his role as university president June 4, days after controversial remarks he made at a Dec. 5 OSU Athletic Conference meeting came under public scrutiny. Comments about Notre Dame and the Southeastern Conference in particular brought national attention. Gee also made comments about former Wisconsin football coach and first-year Arkansas coach Bret Bielema, claiming Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez thought the coach was a “thug.” Gee apologized in a later email and said his remarks about the coach were “unfounded, inaccurate and unfair.” Gee also said Bielema accepted his apology. A March 11 letter to Gee from Board of Trustees Chairman Robert Schottenstein on the subject of Gee’s offensive comments was obtained by The Lantern. In the letter, it was written that the inappropriate behavior would not be tolerated. “On occasion your words that may be intended to bring a bit of levity

Common App glitches cause issues for applicants LEE MCCLORY For The Lantern Although the new system Ohio State has been using to gather applications from prospective students has been acting up as of late, an OSU official said the university isn’t planning to offer other ways to apply. Users of the Common Application’s latest updated version have experienced multiple glitches, including a failure to load parts of the application and for some accounts, a failure to submit transcripts and letters of recommendation, an inability to request letters of recommendation, difficulties logging in and problems registering duplicate payments or not registering payments at all. The Common App, a form prospective college students can use to apply to more than 500 colleges, contracted with Hobsons in order to update the program this fall. Hobsons is an academic success company that offers personalized learning, post-secondary enrollment and student support systems. OSU began using Common App Spring Semester 2013. Other schools

that use the program include University of Cincinnati, University of Dayton, Kenyon College, Miami University (Ohio), Denison University and Northwestern University. Robert Reed, the assistant director of Outreach and Recruitment at OSU, said some counselors are also having trouble with the website and haven’t been able to submit students’ transcripts and letters of recommendation. He has also seen complaints from potential applicants. “Students are worried about us receiving the application in time to be considered for the deadline,” Reed said. OSU’s application deadline was Oct. 1 for Spring Semester 2014 and the priority deadline is Nov. 1 for Fall Semester 2014, including Honors and Scholars applications and merit scholarships, according to OSU Undergraduate Admissions. The latest possible submission deadline for Fall 2014 is Feb. 1. It costs $60 to apply to OSU as a first-year domestic student through the Common App, while $70 is the firstyear international fee. Despite the issues, the admissions office won’t be offering other ways of applying, such as faxing in applications

The final deadline is Feb. 1 and students can apply until then. We’ll certainly work with students. It’s outside their control,” Reed said. Reed said the biggest problems he has seen have been with loading the writing supplement for the Morrill Scholars program, a scholarship through the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Honors and Scholars writing supplement. A Common App press release said

KAYLA BYLER / Managing editor of design the company is aware of the problems and is working on fixing the issues. “As we approach the busy deadline season, we are fully committed to ensuring complete and timely review of applications for all Common Application members, particularly those with Nov. 1 deadlines,” the release read. Reed said he still expects plenty of applicants. “I haven’t heard anything of students being so frustrated they won’t apply,” he said.

Sean Jepsen, a third-year in finance, had his bike stolen in the OSU campus area, but his parents later found it on Craigslist.

When one Ohio State student thought his stolen bike was lost to him forever, a glimmer of hope appeared in the form of a Craigslist post. Sean Jepsen, a third-year in finance, said his parents found the blue 1982 Schwinn Le Tour on Craigslist about a week ago after Jepsen’s older brother, who graduated from OSU with a degree in German in 2009, suggested they check the classified advertisement website to see if they could find the bike. “My parents were Skyping my brother in Germany, and he had got his bike stolen over there, and he said to check Craigslist because people often steal them, then sell them on Craigslist,” Jepsen said. Jepsen said his brother is in Germany looking for employment. Jepsen’s bike was stolen at the beginning of September at the St. Thomas More Newman Center, located at 64 W. Lane Ave. Shortly after that conversation, Jepsen said his mom, who originally

bought the bike for Jepsen’s father in 1982 while the two were dating, checked Craigslist and found the bike listed as the fourth on the page. “I can imagine there was a little uncertainty because the bike looked just like mine,” Jepsen said. “There was one picture (of the bike) and there was one discoloration on the bike that’s unique to my bike. They were shocked when they saw it, and I was too, because this happened over a month after I had gotten my bike stolen.” Jepsen’s parents had previously documented the stolen bike’s serial number and took it with them to look at the bike, which was being sold for $170 out of the garage of private sellers in Grove City, Ohio. “When they were looking at the bike, my dad asked (the sellers) if he could take it for a ride,” Jepsen said. “When he was out of sight, he checked the serial number and it matched.” Jepsen’s parents left the bike with the sellers, who had bought it for $40 from a pawnshop in Columbus and fixed it up, before going to the police, he said.

campus Research focuses on safety of self-operating vehicles Ozguner said the Department of Transportation gathers proposals for university transportation centers that plan to advance technology in transportation through research. He said he believes the team’s proposal, along with OSU’s “history of involvement in transportation research,” aligned with the Department of Transportation’s goals. The university will receive more than $1.4 million for 2013, and the team has requested $1.5 million for next year. Cost sharing with the university will make up the rest of the $4.3 million total over the first two years, Weisenberger said. Weisenberger said the research team is donating a majority of the university’s portion of the cost, including personnel time and equipment usage. Ozguner said he has been studying autonomous cars for years as part of the OSU Control and Intelligent Transportation Research Lab. He said designing the cars’ synthetic intelligence involves understanding real human driving behaviors, which is why the grant-awarded team includes experts from other related fields. “Without collaborating with true experts, it would just be my guess at how humans drive,” he said. “Especially if the autonomous cars will be in mixed traffic, we need to understand what the other (human) drivers might do, particularly if a crash is imminent. Similarly, we need to understand the biomechanics aspects if we are to design with new driving, sensing and sitting configurations.” Weisenberger is also the director of OSU’s Driving Simulation Laboratory, which studies drivers’ behavior. As part of the study, she plans to simulate crashes and measure responses of real drivers in the simulator — for example, if people could be “lulled” by a car that drives itself and not respond fast enough to a crash situation. “It’s important to understand how humans interact with these autonomous systems in ways that will actually enhance driver safety,” she said. John Bolte, director of the OSU Wexner Medical Center Injury Biomechanics Research Center and a member of the research team, said in an email his lab will study reports of real world

AleXA CARSON Lantern reporter Self-operating vehicles will join manually operated cars in the coming years, according to some Ohio State researchers, raising questions about what would happen if an accident happened without a driver in control. Janet Weisenberger, OSU senior associate vice president for research, said those are the questions researchers are focusing on answering. “In a situation where a crash is imminent, when does the vehicle take over? Should the vehicle ever give control back to the human driver? How does the human driver react when the vehicle takes over?” Weisenberger said. “Those are the kinds of questions we will be working on answering.” Researchers from various fields of study are coming together to launch a $4.3 million center to study crash-imminent situations in autonomous, or self-driving cars, with the help of a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The grant was awarded to develop a Crash Imminent Safety University Transportation Center, although Umit Ozguner, a professor of electrical and computer engineering and head of the research center, said in an email that the center does not refer to an actual building but an “umbrella organization.” That organization includes existing research facilities, like the driving simulator, at both OSU and its partner universities. The grant money will be used to fund the research taking place in these facilities. Ozguner said the center will hopefully launch next month. For the grant, OSU is partnering with Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, North Carolina A&T State University, University of Massachusetts-Amherst and University of WisconsinMadison. Researchers will collaborate and communicate via teleconference meetings. Ozguner said there are about a dozen faculty and staff members listed on the proposal, but he expects that number to double with student and graduate student research assistants.

How much does that CO$T? MAY SESSION

It’s FREE, but...

Students enrolled in May Session are still responsible for paying student fees. Students who were enrolled in Summer Semester 2013 were issued a refund after fees were adjusted because of the quarter to semester conversion. In an email to students, Executive Vice President Joseph Steinmetz said: “The session will be structured the same as last year. As was the case this past spring, no tuition will be charged for up to 3 credit hours taken during the May session.”

Adjusted fees for Summer 2013 were:

The OSu Driving Simulation laboratory, located at 1305 Kinnear Road, is set to be used as part of a $4.3m grant to research crash imminent situations and vehicle safety. crashes and resulting injuries to determine if injury data can suggest potential evasive actions by the driver or car that would minimize harm. “We hypothesize that injury data from a particular crash scenario can suggest situations in which the driver should not re-engage and assume control of the vehicle but rather leave the autonomous system in control, because human motor skill or reaction time would be insufficient to mitigate injury,” Bolte said. At the end of the two-year grant, Weisenberger said the research team plans to reapply. Ozguner said research “never is truly completed,” but the team does have long-term goals it’s working toward. “(Research) could lead to new regulations related to autonomous cars on the road, or specific new sensors in cars, or some real-time algorithm to quantify safety,” he said. “Ultimately we want safer roads and a safer driving experience.”

OSU recognized for mental health promotion Students living with mental health conditions:

STACIe JACKSON Lantern reporter Ohio State’s suicide prevention and mental health counseling initiatives were recently recognized nationally, showing some students, faculty and staff OSU is working to combat mental health issues on campus. OSU Counseling and Consultation Services earned the JedCampus Seal this month for its efforts promoting the emotional well-being of students. The seal, valid for two years and given out for the first time this year, recognizes schools that “exhibit comprehensive mental health promotion and suicide prevention programming, based upon evaluation of the school’s survey responses (against the) Jed Foundation’s recommended practices in mental health programming,” according to the JedCampus website. The Jed Foundation is a nonprofit organization working to promote emotional health, prevent suicide and protect the mental health of teenagers and college students, according to the organization’s website. One of OSU’s programs, OSU Suicide Prevention, works with campus and community partners to coordinate a comprehensive suicide prevention program for OSU, according to the program’s website. Suicide Prevention has about 70 Columbus campus, regional campus and community partners who collaborate with the program to make suicide prevention a shared campus responsibility, according to the program’s website. Some of the OSU-Columbus partners include Counseling and Consultation Services, Student Life, OSU Police and University Housing. OSU Suicide Prevention program manager Wendy Winger said the program is funded by Student Life. OSU Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs said in an email Student Life’s “portion of the Suicide Prevention program is $150,000 per year.” Winger said suicide is a difficult issue to focus on, which can lead to campus suicide prevention programs being less prevalent than OSU’s program, which has its own independent office on the fourth floor of the Physical Activities and Education Services building. OSU Counseling and Consultation Service, which aims to help students with stress management, anxiety and depression, among other things, is located in the Younkin Success Center at 1640 Neil Ave. OSU Director of Counseling and Consultation Services Micky Sharma said earning the JedCampus Seal is a positive sign for how OSU operates. “It is a statement to not only our university community but beyond, that

the mental health services and the suicide prevention program are things that Ohio State takes very seriously, puts emphasis on and makes a priority for the betterment of our students,” Sharma said. Sharma said OSU is the largest university and the only in Ohio to receive the seal. “It is an important distinction as well to demonstrate that even on a large campus, we are able to have comprehensive mental health services and prevention programming,” Sharma said. Winger said the award is an emblem of the hard work the Suicide Prevention program has done across the university. “We have received this award as a result of all of our partners working together on suicide prevention,” Winger said. “The strength of the OSU Suicide Prevention program comes from how many partners we have and how much they have all worked together and contributed something towards the effort.” Kaitlin Blackburn, a fourth-year in aeronautical engineering and German, said it is comforting to know OSU provides reliable mental health services. “I’ve never had to personally use any mental health services at OSU,

to some significant issues have, in fact, had the opposite effect,” the letter said. “There have been occasions on which your comments were insensitive and inappropriate and have offended others.” Future mishaps would result in punitive action, including dismissal, the letter said. “A university president needs to always understand you set the standard for the institution. When you don’t, you should be ashamed of yourself, and I was not happy about those comments,” Gee said. Gee called his comments, although made “in great jest,” inappropriate, but said it was gratifying that an official from Notre Dame and his Catholic friends had forgiven him. At 69 years old, Gee said he is “learning every day” and hopes the OSU community can find pride in how he handled the situation that grabbed national headlines. It wasn’t the first time comments Gee made received backlash, and Gee said the “hiccups” will make an appearance in his book on humor. “I always say to everyone, ‘The greatest learning experiences that I have, I think that everyone else has, is to learn from your mistakes and learn from the things you didn’t do right,’ and obviously, particularly in terms of a couple of the other books I’m writing, that will have to be very much apart of my story and what I take a look at,” he said. His transition from the man-in-charge to a more

Some of those students said Common App problems would have slowed down their application process. “Absolutely (the Common App shutting down) would have stressed me out a lot,” said Andy Rielinger, a firstyear in social work who used the Common App to apply to OSU.

behind-the-scenes role has gone smoothly but was somewhat challenging for the two-term former OSU president. “If one gave me truth serum, do I miss the daily activity of the university? I do. Do I miss all the kinds of things that I did? Absolutely. I do not think one could do this for the period of time I have done it without missing those kind of things, but also it was time for me to do something different,” he said. While Gee is no longer the university president, in many ways he remains the face of the university. Students still invite him to parties and stop him for pictures on the Oval and instructors still ask him to speak as a guest in classes. He said he believes the OSU community will adjust well to the new president, but he hopes to remain an important part of the institution in a positive way. “One of my friends used the analogy, that I thought was very interesting, of Jack Hanna. You know, Jack Hanna hasn’t run the Columbus Zoo for a long period of time, but has remained a very important part of the zoo. So maybe I’m the academic equivalent of Jack Hanna,” he said. A university with history like OSU, though, is much bigger than one man. “My goal should be to make sure the next president is the most successful president in the history of the institution,” he said.

First-year in animal nutrition Sarah Eddy, who also used the Common App, said she’d heard of the problems from her high school friends. “One of my friends who is still in high school, her Common App wouldn’t open for a week,” Eddy said. Application submissions through Common App are up 25 percent over the same time period as last year, according to the Common App press release. Thirty-two colleges and universities began to use Common App as their application process for the 2013-14 school year, according to the Common App’s website.

Stephen Jepsen, father of Sean Jepsen, a third-year in finance, stands with his son’s bike the day it was recovered by Grove City police.

Bike from 1A “The police talked to the guys. One of them acted ignorant of the risks from buying things from pawnshops but the other one, who was the more talkative salesman, knew about the risks,” Jepsen said. “They were disappointed of course.” The sellers gave the bike back to Jepsen’s parents for free, even though one of the men asked for compensation for the repairs done to the bike, Jepsen said. “(The bike) got returned in nicer condition than when it was stolen, which is kind of funny,” Jepsen said. Jepsen’s recovered bike will stay with his parents in Chillicothe, about an hour south of Columbus, for now. Jepsen said he doesn’t want to risk having it stolen again because of its sentimental value. He has since gotten a cheaper bike and a better lock, he said. University Police Deputy Chief Richard Morman said it is fairly common to find stolen bikes on Craigslist, in pawnshops and in used bike shops, but didn’t have statistics or exact numbers on the findings. Morman said if students do find their stolen bikes for sale on Craigslist or in a pawnshop, they should contact the police like Jepsen’s parents did. Pawnshops are required to register all of their products with the Columbus Division of Police by a city ordinance before selling them, Morman said. Pawnshops are also required to keep information including sellers’ names, ages, addresses, driver’s license numbers, physical descriptions and the items’ sale prices by law, according to the Ohio Revised Code. Morman said if a student were to find his or her stolen bike in a pawnshop, the student would be

required by law to pay the pawnshop the amount the shop paid for the bike, even though it was stolen. “Hypothetically, if your bike is stolen, and somebody pawns it and they get $50 from the pawnshop, in order to get that bike back, you’re going to have to pay $50,” Mormon said. Lizzy McLennan, a third-year in early childhood education who recently had her bike stolen, said she does not plan to check Craigslist for her stolen bike. “There are too many (bikes) to look through and I don’t have the time,” McLennan said. “Plus my insurance covered my bike and I found a cheaper, used one.” McLennan said in general it’s a good idea for students who have had their bikes stolen to check Craigslist because it could help police recover their property. To further help recover stolen bikes, Morman advises students to take a picture of their bikes’ serial numbers, to use a “U-lock” when securing their bikes and to register their bikes with OSU’s Bug Your Bike program, which helps law enforcement track stolen bikes through a radio frequency identification device. Ronald Balser, director of Security and Protective Services at the Department of Public Safety, said 74 bikes have been registered with the program this year. Jepsen said he attempted to register his new bike with Bug Your Bike about two weeks ago, but at the time, the program was out of the bug devices.

“We also do a lot of programming and outreach presentations all across campus in classrooms, residence halls, through different student groups and at different events,” Sharma said. JedCampus seals were awarded to 30 colleges and universities. University of Kentucky, Boston University, New York University and Yale University were among the other schools that received the seal.


studentvoice US should consider investing in national infrastructure Letter to the editor: In their annual report released earlier this year, The American Society of Civil Engineers gave the United States’ infrastructure a D+ rating . The United States, a country once known for its world-class infrastructure, is now trending toward the bottom of the developed world. Many of our competitors are upgrading their nation’s capital stock every year — particularly China — by adding high-speed rail, upgraded information systems and new roads. So why aren’t we? Especially considering all the new technology the U.S. has invented over the past 20 years, why isn’t it being used to upgrade our nation’s capital stock? Why aren’t we building high-speed rail systems that cut travel time and carbon emissions in half? Why aren’t we upgrading our nation’s Wi-Fi speed? Why aren’t we building new utility systems powered with green energy? Where’s the progress? It’s not just about economic progress. For example, this year in Mount Vernon, Wash., a semi-truck accidentally impacted one of the overhead tresses of a bridge that is daily used by 70,000 citizens and businesses. This set off a chain reaction,

resulting in the 58-year-old bridge nosediving into the Skagit River. Luckily, nobody died; however, the story illustrates the danger of what can happen if our infrastructure isn’t taken care of. A public capital upgrade is needed: not only for the sake of remaining economically competitive worldwide, but also clearly for the sake of our citizens’ safety. Infrastructure spending acts in the short-term as an immediate jolt to our economy. This happens as government expenditure acts as a stimulus, by paying wages to all who participate in the construction. These wages will then be spent throughout the local economies. This effect may be small and temporary, but it’s still a boost. However, real and long-term economic growth will result from the increased productivity of our nation’s capital stock. We can produce more in less time and with less money, on a nationwide scale. Another example is high speed rail, which provides a speedier route for businesses to transport goods across the country, thus saving them time and money. Also, upgrading our communication systems and nationwide Wi-Fi speed would expedite how fast and how cheaply information is spread from business to business across our country. Not only does infrastructure increase

productivity: it brings more business to the U.S. Businesses locate where they can save the most money. A KPMG International survey from a few years back found that 90 percent of business executives said that the availability and quality of infrastructure affects where they locate their business operations. Furthermore, businesses locate where the economy is the most productive. If we want more business here in the United States, we need to upgrade our nation’s capital. It is not necessary that this be done only with public investment. So-called infrastructure banks bring funding from the private sector, and give tax breaks to investors purchasing municipal bonds, which as a result makes money available to local municipalities for infrastructure investment. Both types of investment can facilitate the upgrade we need. But let us see the private sector and the public sector unite to tackle the problem of our crumbling infrastructure: let it happen before the situation becomes dire.

The college lifestyle offers students the means to be constantly surrounded by likeminded and driven individuals with propensities for staying up late and making regrettable decisions, but when it’s time to end the night early to dive into schoolwork or massive multiplayer online role-playing games, Privacy Pop offers students the ability to be secluded from outside distractions. Ryan Guenther Privacy Pop is a bed sory that wraps around one’s mattress creating a personal tent. It can be purchased in sizes fitting twin to queen sized beds. “This advanced bed tent was created especially for college students living in dorms, kids and teenagers that share a room with their siblings and people of all ages who share rooms to cut down on rent costs,” according to the product’s website. Dena Roché, a publicist from Orca Communications Unlimited, LLC told The Lantern via email that the Privacy Pop was designed to block out light in order to provide ideal sleeping conditions for people who work nights shifts and try to sleep during the day. “The Privacy Pop was featured for its sleep promotion qualities on ‘The Doctors’ TV show and was highlighted on the DIY Network’s, ‘I Want That’,” Roche said. Privacy Pop is made of a water repellent fabric and comes suited with double-sided zippers, mesh windows, a portable carrying bag and electronic port openings giving students the

privacy and access to power sources needed to leave NSA agents disturbed by the habits of sexually frustrated teenagers. Still remaining is the question of whether or not students would be interested enough in the potential benefits of Privacy Pop to spend more than $100 turning their beds into outdoor camping equipment. When asked about Privacy Pop, many students were disinterested with several even walking away without giving a response and sporting perturbed looks. This reporter admits he could have phrased his question better than to ask if anyone had any interest in pitching a tent in his or her bed. Kyle Banfill, a fourth-year in English, said he believes purchasing Privacy Pop would be frivolous spending. “Privacy was never really an issue when I was living in the dorms or even last year when sharing a room in a house,” Banfill said. “If I ever needed privacy, my roommates always respected me enough to oblige.” University Residences and Dining Services was unable to provide an answer when asked if Privacy Pop would be permitted for use in dormitories; this reporter was referred to a Dave Isaacs, spokesman for the Office of Student Life, who said there is no policy in place prohibiting students from using such a product in the dorms. Problems would only arise if students on top bunks or lofts used the product and interfered with fire-safety equipment, Isaacs said. With a price tag surpassing $100 and a reported lack of interest, Privacy Pop may never have the opportunity to seclude OSU students to lives of social deprivation and World of Warcraft.

I can remember as a student at Bryan City Schools in Bryan, Ohio, when my parents put up signs in our yard supporting the school levies. No one likes budget cuts in schools, and a failed levy often meant school programs being cut, such as art, music or sports. As a member of Students for Education Reform at Ohio State University, I am concerned about the state of Columbus City Schools and I understand how important it is that all schools are funded in a way that gives every student the opportunity to obtain an excellent education. When it comes to the Columbus City Schools levy pending a vote on Election Day, there needs to be rigorous discussion about whether an increase in property taxes will result in higher achievement for students. In the last 40 years, the United States has more than doubled its per pupil spending on public education accounting for inflation, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, yet student achievement has remained stagnant. It is clear that more than just an increase in funding is needed to improve the outcomes of our students. However, I believe the CCS levy is different as it provides a few specific recommendations that gives it definite potential to increase student achievement: First, the levy increases funding to recruit, train and retain the best teachers by empowering school leaders to make personnel decisions and pairing the district with human-resources professionals to build a talent pool of great teachers and principals. The CCS levy also provides more funding for preschool education. The evidence on preschool education shows that the earlier we invest in students, the more of an impact it has on student learning. The levy grants more funding to high-performing charter schools. Providing more funding to high-performing charters gives an incentive to lower-performing charter schools to improve and rewards the highest-performing charter schools so they can expand and replicate in order to serve more students who are trapped in failing schools. The final aspect of the CCS levy that will lead to higher levels of student achievement is the measure that will establish an independent auditor of the CCS district. Amid allegations of changes to attendance records and test scores, it is becoming increasingly important that CCS strive to be more transparent so the public can obtain detailed financial data and information on schools that can be easily understood. Instead of assuming that schools need more money to solve all of their problems, it is essential for voters to determine whether their money is being spent in a manner aligned with research and evidence that the increased funding will help kids. As Mayor Michael Coleman said when he visited Ohio State Oct. 1, “This isn’t a levy. This is reform.” And I believe this reform is one step in the right direction to ensuring that every student in Columbus has the opportunity to receive a great education.

HighBall to celebrate Halloween, span 2 days T.J. McGarry Lantern reporter This year, Halloween is set to become a two-day festivity in Columbus’ Short North Arts District. HighBall Halloween is a Halloween-themed block party set to be held directly on High Street in between the Short North and the Arena District, roughly between W. Goodale Street and Convention Center Drive, Friday and Saturday. HighBall Halloween is a celebration of the Short North Arts District and Columbus’ artistic talent. The event is put on by the Short North Alliance, which aims to promote area businesses, and features a wide variety of art forms, including music, dance, makeup and costume design. This year marks the sixth anniversary of HighBall Halloween, and for the first time, the event is set to span two days. This year’s producers of HighBall Halloween planned for the celebration to have a multicultural feel. The theme of this year’s event is based off the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, said John Angelo, producer and founder of HighBall Halloween. The event is slated to have face painting and other Day of the Dead staples, like skulls made out of sugar candy and dancing puppet skeletons. “We tapped into that concept a little bit last year,” Angelo said, explaining that the multicultural theme has been greatly expanded for this year’s HighBall. Ohio State’s Department of Design, Center for Latin American studies, Multicultural Center and Department of Fashion and Retail Studies have been heavily involved with HighBall this year, along with other departments. Connie DeJong, a professor of Fashion and Retail Design at OSU, has been working with the Short North Alliance in coordinating OSU’s involvement with the event. “We’ve partnered with the honors and scholars (departments) in learning the Catrina face painting,” DeJong said. “We have brought in a multicultural experience.” DeJong also described some of the departments’ involvements with HighBall Halloween, including the design department’s role creating two dancing skeletons for the celebration. Despite this year’s emphasis on diversity and the Dios de Los Muertos celebration, HighBall Halloween is still focused on supporting the Columbus art scene and the Short North Arts District, said Betsy Pandora, executive director of the Short North Alliance. “A significant portion of the proceeds go to the surrounding neighborhoods,” Pandora said. “We want to keep the Short North Arts district a thing.” As the visionary behind the event, Angelo agrees with that sentiment. “The Short North really celebrates individuality and creativity,” Angelo said. “It is about celebrating people designing really wonderful, over-the-top costumes.” The event kicks off Friday at 6 p.m. At 8 p.m., there is a 5K run called the Costume Zoom, which begins on the south side of HighBall. Participants are encouraged to dress up in their best costumes for the run. “It’s more of a parade than a run,” Pandora said. The race costs $50 to register and includes entrance to HighBall.

Friday’s festivities are set to continue after the run with a wide variety of events, including the Costume Couture fashion show, which is a display of looks and outfits that combine high fashion with costume design. The fashion show is slated to feature musical performances from local bands and DJs and the Grim Reaper’s Dance Party will follow the event, featuring DJ Cale. This year’s HighBall Halloween is also scheduled to showcase a performance from makeup artist and former Columbus resident Tommy Pietch, who was featured on season three of SyFy’s special-effects and makeup artist competition, “Face Off.” “He will be transforming these two dancers into creatures,” said Angelo. “Then, they will perform on stage.” Friday festivities also include a performance from drag queen Nina West, who is slated to do a stage show featuring performance art, comedy and political satire. Saturday, HighBall Halloween continues from noon to 1 a.m. featuring a kid’s costume contest at 1 p.m. and a costume contest for dogs at 3 p.m. The celebration is set to continue Saturday evening with the culminating event of HighBall Halloween: the general public costume contest at 11:10 p.m., which encourages citizens to show off their most creative and elaborate costumes and compete for cash prizes as well as specialty prizes. The general public costume contest is slated to occur alongside various bands, artistic murals and a tailgate for the Ohio State football game against Penn State at 8 p.m. General admission is $5 at the gate. Admission is free for children 12 and under from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday.


Kim Kardashian says ‘yes’ to Kanye West, ignites media frenzy Kim Dailey Lantern reporter Break out the champagne and the party hats folks, there is going to be a Mr. and Mrs. Yeezy. Rapper Kanye West proposed to television personality Kim Kardashian Monday at the AT&T Park, home to the San Francisco Giants, in San Francisco. Because we care, right? E! News reported West rented out the stadium and popped the question in front of family and friends, hiring an orchestra to accompany the moment as the words “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” appeared on the Giants scoreboard. Whether this was meant to be cute or a sheer cry of desperation is up for debate. The gift of marriage was proposed on Kardashian’s 33rd birthday, because a Target gift card wouldn’t suffice. Kardashian posted a picture of the ring in question on her Instagram account Tuesday. The screen’s message from the previous night displayed in the background along with Kardashian’s simple caption of “YES!!!” This is West’s second engagement, after he was

Kim Kardashian (left) and Kanye West at the Givenchy Fall-Winter 2013-14 Ready-To-Wear collection show on March 3. The two became engaged Oct. 21. previously engaged to designer Alexis Phifer from 2006 to 2008, and Kardashian’s third. The reported 15-carat engagement ring is by Lorraine Schwartz, the same jeweler of her last engagement ring, given to her by NBA player Kris Humphries.

With Kardashian being twice-divorced, and going by West’s own advice back in 2005, if he “ain’t no punk holla,” then he’ll want that prenuptial agreement. With E! News as the breeding ground for all things Kardashian, expect coverage over every tiny detail that will answer the questions “everyone” has on their minds. What dress will she be wearing? Will he be wearing his own designer shoes or hers? How many times over could your tuition be paid with the cost of their wedding? West and Kardashian began dating in early 2012, despite Kardashian still being legally married to Humphries. The two were only married 72 days before filing for divorce, and Kardashian and Humphries’ divorce was finalized June 3, 12 days prior to the birth of West and Kardashian’s daughter, North West. Hopefully this marriage will end the Kardashian curse, both for Kardashian herself and for us having to hear about it. Recently, Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, was reported by E! News as separating from Bruce Jenner, her husband of 22 years, and her younger sister, Khloé, continues to be estranged to NBA player Lamar Odom, her husband since 2009, who last played for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Columbus Unscripted Improv Festival to connect local, national improv comedy groups Shannon Clary Lantern reporter The golden rule of improvisational comedy is to always say yes, and Columbus has said yes to hosting a four-day festival honoring the performance art. The second Columbus Unscripted Improv Festival is scheduled to take place Thursday through Sunday and feature skill-building workshops and more than 20 improv acts. Participants are set to come from Chicago, Cleveland and Kansas City to perform alongside locals, including two Ohio State improv groups, Fishbowl Improv and 8th Floor Improv. “We’ve got great teams from Ohio State participating, so it’s really cool that it’s all connected,” said Barbara Allen, a co-organizer of the festival and member of Columbus improv group See You Thursday. Allen helped develop the first Unscripted Festival in 2011. “Some of the groups in Columbus have had the chance to perform at the Chicago Improv Festival (in April),” she said. “And really, our thought was, ‘Why not Columbus? Why not here? Why not having a festival that will showcase the local, regional and certainly national talent?’” Allen said this year’s festival will be larger and more organized than the first, partly because of increased interest in improv locally. “We were flying by the seat of our pants for the last one,” she said. “In 2013, we really wanted to expand the reach. A lot of movement has happened in the last couple years in Columbus with improv. There are probably 22 teams that are solid in performing around (Columbus).” Susan Messing, an improv veteran from Chicago who has performed for over 25 years, is one of the headliners of the festival. “She is a really big name in Chicago and has a terrific comedic style,” Allen said. Messing is set to perform with her husband, Michael Clayton

See You Thursday is one of more than 20 improv groups set to perform at the Columbus Unscripted Improv Festival Oct. 24-27. McCarthy, a former writer for “Saturday Night Live” and “The Drew Carey Show.” Another headliner is Megan Johns, an up-and-coming improviser from The Annoyance Theatre & Bar in Chicago. “She is out-of-control funny and a really powerful comedian,” Allen said. “These are our friends. There is connection to Columbus for them. They are really excited to see us and come back.” In addition to performing, professionals are also scheduled to hold workshops to help strengthen the local improv community, Allen said. “The philosophy is that everyone matters, and we really want to create

spaces for people to perform in Columbus and celebrate people’s art. The key for us is learning by bringing those improvisers to us,” she said. OSU improv groups Fishbowl Improv and 8th Floor Improv are slated to perform Thursday night. Daniel Cleveland, a second-year in biomedical engineering, has been a member of Fishbowl since last year. “I love diving in and exploring random characters,” Cleveland said. “It’s an outlet to this weirdness in me, it gives me a lot of satisfaction.” Cleveland is looking forward to discovering more of Columbus’ improv community at the event. “It will be nice to see local improv outside of OSU,” he said. “I am excited to see them perform, and a big fest like (Columbus Unscripted Improv Festival) is really great for Columbus improv.” Mitra Jouhari, a third-year in psychology and president of 8th Floor Improv, said getting involved in improv was a “life-changing experience.” “I’ve been doing it since I got to college,” she said. “I found this awesome community that was into making people laugh.” Jouhari is looking forward to the performance by Fire & Beer, the house team at the Annoyance Theatre & Bar, which is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. Thursday at Shane’s Dinner Theater. “It’s really cool because normally you would have to travel to see them,” she said. 8th Floor is schedule to host its own fest, the fifth annual Bellwether Improv Festival, Nov. 8-9, Jouhari said. The performances are scheduled to take place at Shane’s Dinner Theater, located at 447 E. Livingston Ave., on Thursday; Studio 35, located at 3055 Indianola Ave., on Friday; and Wild Goose Creative, at 2491 Summit St., on Saturday and Sunday with prices varying depending on the act. Tickets can be purchased online at Columbus Unscripted Improv Festival’s website and at the door the day of the event. Discount tickets are available for students on the festival’s website.

OSU volleyball set to battle No. 2 Nittany Lions Tim Moody Lantern reporter After its ranking took another hit, the Ohio State women’s volleyball team faces a road test against a highly ranked opponent. The No. 24 Buckeyes (14-6, 2-6), who were ranked as high as No. 12 earlier this season in the American Volleyball Coaches Association Top 25 Poll, are scheduled to travel to State College, Pa., for a match against No. 2 Penn State (16-2, 7-1). OSU is coming off a four-set loss at Illinois, but coach Geoff Carlston said the Buckeyes can take some positives out of the loss as they prepare for the Nittany Lions. “We played a lot better, we did a lot of good things,” Carlston said. “We just have to keep improving.” Junior setter Taylor Sherwin said the team needs to stay together as a group and keep working hard every day in practice. “We just (need to) keep working on the things that we need to on offense and defense and keep saying focused as a team,” she said. Freshman defensive specialist Valeria León said it will take hard

I Women’s Volleyball Tournament, has been one of the more successful teams women’s volleyball teams in recent years. That success includes four-straight national championships from 2007-10. The Nittany Lions’ strong reputation has stuck with them ever since.

Gardner a ‘steady, calm influence’ for men’s soccer eran hami Lantern reporter Ohio State captain, Columbus Crew Soccer Academy captain, Worthington Kilbourne captain. Each experience for Sage Gardner has helped him progress as the leader he is today. Gardner, a senior defender for the men’s soccer team, has been a captain for the last two seasons. He said learning by example is what taught him the most. “Freshman year coming in I saw (former Buckeyes) Matt Gold, Konrad (Warzycha), and (Sam) Scales lead a successful team that went to the sweet sixteen,” Gardner said. Gardner attributed much of his growing up to the fact that he was one of three team captains last season. His ability to watch and learn helped developed his leadership. “Last year I got a learning experience being a tri-captain with two other seniors (Chris Gomez and Austin McAnena),” Gardner said. “I got to lead by example but it wasn’t necessarily my captaincy. I got to learn with the other two captains and it just evolved from there. Each year, I’ve progressed as a leader.” Gardner’s definition of leadership is geared toward inspiring his fellow teammates to achieve success. “I strive to come here and really gear myself towards the next level. Even if that doesn’t happen, I think that helps portray that I’m serious, but I also have fun while playing,” Gardner said. “Just showing a lot of confidence and passion, that’ll trickle down to everybody else.” Coach John Bluem noted Gardner has the qualities to be a good leader and has done well at it. “There is nobody on the team that works harder at his game, tries to get better every day

and is consistent in his performance,” Bluem said. “Those traits and qualities are good in a leader.” Gardner was a four year letter winner in high school at Worthington Kilbourne, as well as captain his senior season. He also was captain of his U-18, U-19 and U-20 teams for the Columbus Crew Soccer Academy. He led his academy teams to the playoffs each year and to back to back national championships in his U-19 and U-20 seasons. Gardner said there is no difference between each level’s captaincy and the job does not change. “I would say it’s pretty much the same, same responsibilities,” Gardner said. “I’d say this (season) is a little different because it’s a more adverse situation in terms of our record (2-6-5, 0-2-2).” Bluem said he has noticed Gardner’s progression as a leader. “A year ago, he was a leader on the team, but only through his work,” Bluem said. “He’s been a very steady, calm influence on the team this year. He leads by example certainly more than anything else.” Redshirt-senior defender Ben Killian attributes Gardner’s leadership skills to his passion, ability to care for individuals and his communication. “His passion for the game shows he is always trying to get better,” Killian said. “He cares about each individual on the team – I think that’s huge. It’s easy to over look younger guys on the team, and he does a really good job of talking with them and communicating.” Killian said Gardner’s leadership carries off the field as well. “He communicates with everyone. He talks with you not just about soccer,” Killian said. “If you have any issues, he’s easy to approach and he’ll give you some good advice.” Gardner has started all 71 games of his Ohio State career. In his collegiate career, he has tallied

Senior defender Sage Gardner (5) heads the ball during a match against Northwestern Oct. 20 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The teams tied, 0-0. three goals and two assists. He has also been a part of 22 shutouts thus far. One word came to mind when Bluem and Killian spoke about Gardner’s soccer abilities: “consistency.” “He plays hard every single game, trains hard every single practice and he is an intelligent player,” Bluem said. Killian agreed. “It is hard to be consistent at this level, especially since he’s been starting since he was a freshman,” Killian said. Gardner is a finance major, but hopes to continue his soccer career into major league play. OSU has four regular season games remaining until the Big Ten tournament begins in Columbus. The Buckeyes are slated to play Oakland Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Field hockey looks to get back to winning ways against Ball State Michelle Ritter Lantern reporter


“In a way, they just kind of have that Penn State swag about them because they have been so good these past few years,” senior outside hitter Kaitlyn Leary said. Carlston gave credit to the Penn State coaching staff for the team’s continued success. “They’re the most athletic team in the country,” he said. “(Penn State coach Russ Rose) has done a great job of recruiting ridiculous talent.” OSU is searching for a change in momentum in Big Ten play, and freshman middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe said it would be huge to end the team’s conference struggles against the second ranked team in the nation. “I’m really excited because it’s Penn State, you always hear that it’s the best team ever,” Sandbothe said. “I think the best part is (that) nobody expects we can do it (win). That’s even more motivation.” The match at Penn State will end a three game road trip for the Buckeyes. Action is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday. The team is then slated to return home to St. John Arena to host No. 13 Nebraska at 7 p.m Friday.

After losing to two ranked Big Ten teams this weekend, the Ohio State field hockey team is set to travel to Muncie, Ind., to take on its last non-conference opponent in Ball State. The Buckeyes have struggled securing a win and are currently on a three game losing streak. Their last win came against in-state opponent Ohio University Oct. 6, 2-1. Coach Anne Wilkinson said her team is looking forward to trying new formations on the field and adjusting people to give Ball State a different look. “We’ve kind of implemented a new style of play a little bit, so we are going to try to continue to build on that,” Wilkinson said. “We’ve moved people around positions so we are trying to work out how we are covering different spaces on the field … just getting people used to playing in different areas and being creative on the attack as well.” Wilkinson said her players have been focusing on movement and distribution of the ball. She hoped the changes will help the Buckeye’s chances on offense. “When we play a good team like Michigan, where they are very good at spoiling the play, it’s very hard to generate an attack, so we really are starting to think a little bit more about what we are doing with our restarts and keeping the ball

Sophomore forward Peanut Johnson (3) watches a play develop during a game against Louisville Oct. 1 at Buckeye Varsity Field. OSU lost, 6-3. moving so it’s not where people can double or triple team us,” Wilkinson said. OSU lost to then-No. 19 Michigan Sunday, 2-1. Sophomore forward Peanut Johnson said the Buckeyes are going to carry over the things that work best for them on the field but try to tighten other aspects of their play to pull away with a win.

“Our main focus is to just keep doing the things that we’ve been doing right this weekend and make a few adjustments just to try to keep the winning mentality and just come out with a win (Wednesday),” Johnson said. Junior midfielder Nina Laudahn said the team has worked on areas they needed to improve and are mentally focused on what they want to accomplish in Wednesday’s game. “We practiced corners a lot,” Laudahn said. “I think we are mentally ready now to score and win this game.” Johnson said the games last weekend helped the team learn from each other and become stronger. “These last few games, we really came together as a team,” Johnson said. “We are just excited to carry that on for the rest of the season.” Wilkinson agreed, and added that after this past weekend’s matches, the team is eager to get back on the field. “We practiced really hard (Tuesday) and I think they are excited to get out and get back on the field to play,” Wilkinson said. The Buckeyes are scheduled to start the match with Ball State at 3 p.m. Wednesday. The team will then prepare for another Big Ten opponent against Indiana Saturday at home.

sports Men’s soccer looks to ‘bounce back’ against Oakland Dan Hessler Lantern reporter

Eric Seger / Sports editor

Redshirt-junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov (32) takes a goal kick during a game against Northwestern Oct. 20 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The teams tied, 0-0.

The Ohio State men’s soccer team is getting a break from its Big Ten schedule Wednesday, when it welcomes the Oakland Golden Grizzlies to Columbus. Oakland (5-3-5, 3-0-1) is a member of the Horizon League, but Buckeye coach John Bluem said his team would be wrong to take the small conference school lightly. “We’ve played Oakland many times before and they are a very good attacking team,” he said. “One of the things we’ll have to make sure we do is to first, (is) bounce back after (Sunday’s game). It’s a short turnaround to play again on Wednesday night. We’ll also have to make sure we respect our opponent, we can’t look at Oakland and say, ‘This is a team from a smaller conference and we should be able to win.’ Well you know, that’s not how it’s going to happen for us, we’re going to have to fight every single game as hard as we can if we want to get a result.” Oakland enters the match against the Buckeyes (2-6-5, 0-2-2) coming off a 3-0 loss to another Big Ten team, then-No. 14 Michigan State. The Grizzlies sit in second place in the conference. Defense has been crucial to The Golden Grizzlies’ success this season, as they have only allowed an average of 1.23 goals per game this year. Oakland junior forward Joey Tinnion leads the team with 14 points (six goals and two assists) in 2013.

Bluem said the Buckeyes have been “riding the coattails of an incredible goalkeeper this year,” and the defense will have to remain strong in Wednesday’s match. OSU redshirt-junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov said his job is to keep the team in the game at all times and that the team needs to remain focused in its upcoming matches. “It’s very important to keep the spirits of the younger guys up and make sure that they’re still checked in and focused on the season,” he said. “(The season) is still not over — everything is up for grabs. I think because we’ve been so close, the soccer gods will come through. We’ll get something eventually.” Three of OSU’s last four opponents have been ranked in the top 20 at the time it played them. Sophomore midfielder Zach Mason said confidence from playing those teams, despite losing to all three, will help the team finish the season strong. “We’re going to do what we’ve been doing (in practice),” he said. “I think we have a lot of confidence. You know, we’ll stick to the basics, stick to what we’ve been doing, we’ve been really close and I think we are right there.” Wednesday night’s game is set for 7 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The team’s next match is scheduled against Cleveland State Oct. 27, before it resumes conference play against No. 13 Penn State in Columbus Nov. 2.

Cincy pitching coach Bryan Price named Reds manager Matthew Mithoefer Senior Lantern reporter The Cincinnati Reds decided to hire in-house to its open managerial position. The club’s front office announced the promotion of pitching coach Bryan Price to manager at a Tuesday press conference. News of the hire first surfaced Monday night on Twitter from Fox’s Ken Rosenthal. Reds General Manager and President of Baseball Operations Walt Jocketty said Tuesday that despite a long list of candidates, he and the rest of the front office did not interview anyone else for the job. “Once we had the meeting with Bryan, we saw no reason to go forward (with other candidates),” Jocketty said at the press conference. The club’s CEO, Bob Castellini, described Price as “exceptional,” and said if the Reds did not hire Price, he likely would be heading elsewhere.

The two sides agreed to a three-year contract running through 2016. Price, the 61st manager in team history, steps in for Dusty Baker who was relieved of his duties Oct. 3 after the Reds lost six consecutive games to close out 2013, including the National League Wild Card Game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Baker went 509-463 (.524) during his six seasons in Cincinnati; he took his team to the postseason in three of the past four years. Price has served as the Reds’ pitching coach since 2010. During the 2013 regular season, the Reds’ pitching staff owned the MLB’s fourthbest ERA and led the NL in strikeouts. The year before, Price’s repertoire of bullpen arms led the Majors in saves (56) and was fourth in ERA (3.34). The 2012 Reds’ starting pitchers became just the eighth rotation in MLB history with five pitchers making at least 30 starts each. Price, who has never managed at the professional level, pitched as high as AAA in the minor leagues and served as the pitching coach for both the Mariners’ (2000-2005) and Diamondbacks (2006-2009) before coming to Cincinnati.


The San Francisco, Calif., native interviewed for the Miami Marlins’ managerial vacancy last offseason, and was rumored to be a possible candidate for the Seattle Mariners current opening at the position. Starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo, who becomes a free agent as soon as the World Series ends, told the Cincinnati Enquirer how he felt his former pitching coach would do as a replacement when news broke of Baker’s firing. “I think he’d be unbelievable,” Arroyo said. “He’s as organized as anyone in the game; he holds people as accountable as well as anyone I’ve seen. He doesn’t buy into stereotypical things in the game … Price looks at evidence. He’s a freaking smart guy, he makes his decision on reasonable evidence. Sometimes in baseball we go by hunches, what someone else said or the way things have gone in the past. He doesn’t do that.” According to a September article at, Reds’ starting pitcher Homer Bailey also had positive things to say about Price’s ability to hold people accountable, an area some feel Baker struggled with.

“We are held accountable,” Bailey said. “We demand certain things out of everyone here, whether you’re the No. 1 starter on the team or the mop-up guy, it doesn’t matter. Our expectations are held so high. Some things are just unacceptable. Our starters are expected to go seven innings. We are expected to keep our team in the game. We are expected to put up quality starts.” Price thanked Baker during Tuesday’s press conference, saying “he became a friend and confidant.” Jocketty said other coaching staff decisions for vacant roles have not yet been made. Price will join John Farrell of the Red Sox and the Padres’ Bud Black as the only active managers who were previously a pitching coach.
