Coke contract complicates ‘healthy vending’ options Parking to no CAITLIN ESSIG Managing editor for content Ohio State made a move to “healthy vending” at the start of this year, but students, staff, faculty and visitors can still get their fill of Coca-Cola products from the machines. In the switch, only foods deemed unhealthy were phased out, leaving some to consider what else the university might do for nutrition on campus. As aligned in the university’s 10-year, $32 million contract with Coca-Cola, soft drinks are available to be purchased in at least 438 vending machines across campus, but some experts said these drinks can be detrimental to consumers’ health. “The caloric drinks, aside from providing calories, aren’t really doing anything beneficial for our diets, and are likely doing a detriment to our diet and our health,” said Carolyn Gunther, assistant professor in the Department of Human Sciences in the Human Nutrition program. “Diet soft drinks compared to caloric soft drinks are better when you’re just talking about calories, but there’s nothing really inherently good either about a diet soft drink.” Gunther, whose research at OSU focuses on healthy vending, said although research isn’t definitive yet, the sugar substitutes found in diet soft drinks might also be detrimental to one’s health. University officials have been mum on whether OSU’s contract with Coca-Cola might hinder healthy initiatives on campus. OSU spokesman Gary Lewis spoke for OSU Business Development on the topic. “The university continues to promote and encourage health and wellness in a number of campus initiatives for faculty, staff and students,” he said in an email about whether the availability of Coke products affects people’s ability to be healthy on campus. Gunther said while she thinks OSU is a leader in “improving the diet, physical activity and health of its students,” the university could still do more. “We would be real trailblazers in the field if we removed the sugar-sweetened beverages … It would be radical,” she said. “That’s one opportunity for improvement because there’s so much data indicating that sugar-sweetened beverages, and that includes caloric soft drinks, are detrimental to our health and put us at an increased risk for obesity.”

KARLY RATZENBERGER / Design editor OSU chief wellness officer and associate vice president for health promotion Bernadette Melnyk said, however, the university is already taking the necessary steps toward offering more healthy options. “Offering foods and beverages that meet nutrition standards in vending machines is a promising, low-cost approach for helping people to maintain a healthy weight,” Melnyk said via an email from Lewis. “Providing healthy, nutritious and affordable options for faculty, staff, students and visitors is important, so they can be healthy.” According to OSU’s Your Plan For Health website, all university vending machines were to include “products selected for healthy snacking” as of Dec. 31, and while no soft drinks were set to be phased out, the proportion of non-sugar-added beverages was to be “a much higher percentage.” “Coca-Cola is a valued partner in the university’s healthy vending initiative,” Lewis said. “And

there are more low and no-calorie offerings (that) are now available at the Medical Center. Everywhere on campus where regular beverages are sold, students will also find a low or no-calorie option available. Additionally, providing choices and making information readily available to consumers is always important and allows students to feel good about the decisions they make based on their own circumstances.” He added that Coca-Cola intends to make calories more visible to consumers. “Coca-Cola has rolled out a ‘Calories Count’ Vending Program across the entire campus, providing clear calorie information on vending machines and reminding consumers that all ‘calories count’ in the choices they make,” Lewis said. Some vending machines on campus, however, did not have calories displayed as of Wednesday night, although some without calories posted did sport signs reminding consumers that “calories count” and to “check then choose.” In the university’s contract with Coca-Cola, it is outlined that there must be at least 438 vending machines on campus selling Coke products. However, there is no clause in the contract outlining what the proportion of certain drinks in these machines must be. Interim President Joseph Alutto said he wasn’t sure that the availability of soft drinks would keep anyone from being healthy on campus. “I haven’t seen any evidence that it hinders the process (of being healthy),” he said in an interview with The Lantern Feb 11. “It opens up conversations for us, and it’s one of the things we look at.” However, Sally Kuzemchak, a registered dietitian in the Columbus area, agreed with Gunther that soft drinks’ availability on campus might be detrimental based on the high concentration of sugar and empty calories in some of the drinks. “The body doesn’t register those calories like it does with food,” she said. “So the research is showing you can just drink and your body is not registering ‘I just took in 300 calories,’ and so you’re still hungry. So then it can just lead to a lot of unwanted calories. You have a lot of students on campus trying to watch their weight and be healthy

Residents received an email Monday that said parking policies are set to change in the 2014-15 academic year. Buckeye Village residents currently have free parking for residents with one or two vehicles offered as part of their rental rates, according to the University Housing website. The email, however, stated “parking no longer will be included as part of the Buckeye Village housing contract” beginning Aug. 1.

LaQuinton Ross not suspended for fight

KARLIE FRANK Lantern reporter Some Ohio State student leaders said they support several of Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman’s newly announced initiatives for the city, including a plan to improve the education system and draw in a national political convention. Coleman addressed the importance of improving Columbus City Schools among other initiatives aimed at “sharing success” in his State of the City address Wednesday evening. “The greatest threat to the success of Columbus is our failure to prepare our children for the future,” Coleman said. Coleman said to address the 34 percent of Columbus City School children that enter kindergarten unprepared, the government is launching a program called “Early Start Columbus.” The city is set to invest $5 million in Early Start Columbus to develop long term pre-kindergarten plans for 4-year-olds to better prepare them for kindergarten and reduce the number of children being held back, Coleman said. Undergraduate Student Government President Taylor Stepp said after the address he was pleased with the announcement of the initiative. “It was interesting to hear the direction Coleman is going with education. I was involved with … a number of initiatives for Columbus City Schools and it’s great to see education is still a priority,” Stepp said. The most expensive initiative announced by Coleman was a $2.5 billion, 30-year program called “Blueprint Columbus.” The program aims to use innovation and sustainability to build parks and green space in Columbus while dealing with sewer issues. “Blueprint will keep storm water from entering sewers in the first place,” Coleman said. “We will convert the eyesore, blighted, vacant and abandoned land into new parks and neighborhoods all across the city of Columbus.” Coleman also announced other initiatives, including one to help solve the problem of filling jobs, not creating them, in Columbus. The City of Columbus is slated to invest $1.5 million in FastPath, a Columbus State Community College program aimed at educating the unemployed in job-related skills and “putting people back to work,” Coleman said.

Junior forward LaQuinton Ross (10) is held back by senior guard Aaron Craft (4) during a fight in a game against Northwestern Feb. 20 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 76-60.

ERIC SEGER Sports editor In college basketball, sometimes getting a victory off the court is as important as getting a win on it. That was the case for the No. 24 Ohio State Buckeyes Wednesday against Northwestern, when the team learned leading scorer junior forward LaQuinton Ross would not be suspended after he was ejected for his involvement in an on-court scuffle in the second half of OSU’s 76-60 win. After a missed shot, Wildcat redshirt-senior

forward Nikola Cerina shoved OSU junior center Amir Williams, causing members from both teams to come to the floor. Ross then shoved Cerina and redshirt-senior forward Drew Crawford, ultimately leading to his ejection. Cerina was also shown the door upon further review by the officials, and he is set to be suspended for Northwestern’s game against Indiana Saturday. Lead official Ray Perone said after the game that because Cerina “took a swing with a closed first or closed hand” at Williams, by rule he must be penalized for committing an act of fighting. “He does not have to make contact — the fact he swings with a closed fist is deemed to

be a fighting act,” Perone said in a released statement after OSU’s win. Perone went on to say since this was the first time Cerina participated in a fight this season, he is only suspended for his team’s next game. After the game, OSU coach Thad Matta said he would be “shocked” if Ross was suspended, but admitted to not having seen everything that happened. “It happened so quick,” Matta said. “I saw the guy shove Amir into the basket support and from there it was sort of melee — not melee, that’s a bad term — but just a little bit unorganized if you will.”

campus OSU students, professors prepare to protest violence in Ukraine FRANCIS PELLICCIARO Lantern reporter

Arrests made in thefts of trinkets, laptop KAYLA BYLER Managing editor of design A 28-year-old woman was arrested for stealing more than $40 worth of “small ribbons and trinkets” from the Scarlet Ribbon Gift Shop at the Wexner Medical Center Friday at about 10:30 a.m. A 20-year-old male student was arrested for theft after being reported by a 21-year-old male student at the 18th Avenue Library Feb. 6. Stolen property included a MacBook Pro laptop valued at $1,300. The arrested man was also found to be in possession of drugs, according to a University Police report. There were 17 total thefts reported on Ohio State’s campus from Feb. 12 to Wednesday. University Police reported a female student Feb. 13 for having a fake New York driver’s license after the female’s wallet was dropped off as lost and found. While attempting to locate the wallet’s owner, an officer discovered the license. When the student came to pick up the wallet, the officer confronted her and she admitted to the license being fake. The officer seized the license, then told the woman he would forward the case to Student Conduct, according to a University Police report. In other arrests this week, a 46-year-old man not affiliated with OSU was arrested for disorderly conduct at the Schottenstein Center Feb. 11 at about 11:30 p.m. after an OSU men’s basketball game against Michigan. A male student reported assault at Morrill Tower Sunday at about 1 a.m.

Some Ohio State students and professors are set to head to the streets of Columbus this weekend to protest the violence in Ukraine. Protests are slated to take place this weekend in Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dayton and Toledo to raise awareness about violent protests occurring in Ukraine, said Christine Charyton, an OSU associate professor of neurology. Anti-government protests in Ukraine reached their highest point of violence yet Tuesday as police clashed with Ukrainian protesters in Kiev. At least 25 people died Tuesday, including nine police officers, according to The New York Times. Ukraine is a nation slightly smaller than the size of Texas and is bordered by Russia to the east and Poland and Romania, as well as other smaller countries, to the west. It has a population of about 44.6 million people, according to the CIA World Factbook. President Viktor Yanukovych posted a statement on his presidential website Wednesday that announced a truce and the beginning of negotiations. “President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych held a meeting with Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Rybak and members of the Working Group on the Settlement of Political Crisis,” the statement read. “Following the meeting, the parties declared: 1. Truce, 2. Beginning of negotiations aimed at cessation of bloodshed and stabilization of the situation in the country for the sake of civil peace.” Charyton is set to help lead one of the protests in Columbus this weekend. “The main thing is to raise awareness because most people don’t even know where Ukraine is located,” Charyton said. Charyton’s father was a Ukrainian immigrant. She said Ukrainians are often a silent minority who want to educate people about what is going on in their nation. Charyton said the protests in Columbus will be held by people who want to raise awareness to protect family members in Ukraine. The protests in Ukraine began in November and are a product of East-West tensions, which have pitted those who relate more to Europe against those who are closer to Russia. In November, Yanukovych decided not to sign agreements with the European Union that would have strengthened ties between Ukraine and the EU, which showed he preferred to have stronger ties to Russia.

Ukrainian protesters raise a national flag over a barricade on Grushevsky Street in downtown Kiev during clashes with riot police Jan. 25. Russia has a long history of influence over Ukraine, as Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union until 1991. Many Ukrainians have a desire to move away from that legacy and make their nation more like those of Western Europe. U.S. President Barack Obama made a statement Wednesday about the protests. “We have been watching very carefully, and we expect the Ukrainian government to show restraint, to not resort to violence in dealing with peaceful protesters,” Obama said. “There will be consequences if people step over the line … And that includes making sure that the Ukrainian military does not step into what should be a set of issues that can be resolved by civilians.” Seamus Kelleher, a third-year in business who is planning to participate in this weekend’s Columbus protest, said the Ukrainian government does not have the same checks and balances as America’s government. “It is a democratic system, but one that is full of corruption and backdoor deals,” Kelleher said. He recently had an internship with the Ukrainian parliament and said his grandparents immigrated to America from Ukraine, and he is also a member of the Ukrainian Society at OSU. “It’s not something that can go unnoticed. The people are fighting for a democracy that supports their ideals,” said Yuliya Vanchosovych, a secondyear in international studies who came to America from Ukraine when she was 8 years old. “The only people who get arrested right now are

protesters,” said Marianna Klochko, an associate professor of sociology at OSU-Marion and program adviser for the Ukrainian Society, who emigrated to the U.S. from Ukraine as a graduate student in 1998. She is slated to be one of the leaders of the protests in Columbus. She said there have been no government investigations of the violence because nobody wants to go on record and get their hands dirty. Klochko said some Ukrainian people expect America or the EU to step up and help them. “Ukrainian people are really looking for actions, and they’re not seeing those. They’re seeing words,” Klochko said. The protest in Columbus is set to take place Saturday in front of the John W. Bricker Federal Building, located at 200 N. High St., from noon to 2 p.m. The next day, protesters in Columbus plan to drive from St. John Chrysostom Byzantine Catholic Church, located at 5858 Cleveland Ave., to the Ohio Statehouse, located at 1 Capitol Square, and from there to the corner of High Street and 15th Avenue adjacent to OSU’s campus, waving flags and protesting along the way, Charyton said. Lesia Mural, a fourth-year in civil engineering and a member of the Ukrainian Society at OSU, said the protestors in the U.S. are sending their thoughts to those in the Ukraine. “We might not be with you physically, but we are with you spiritually and we are standing outside in the cold with you,” Mural, whose grandparents came to the U.S. from Ukraine, said.

Coke from 1A and these drinks are just sabotaging those efforts.” She added, though, that because of OSU’s deal with Coca-Cola, doing away with soft drinks on campus might not be feasible, but the university has a responsibility to take other approaches to creating healthy options. “I understand the university has a deal (with Coca-Cola),” Kuzemchak said. “And I’m sure it’s a very lucrative deal. And I understand that they can’t eliminate those but I think definitely making sure there is water, bottled water as well as water fountains (is important).” Kuzemchak said eliminating soft drinks in vending machines would be a healthy move, calling it the “final frontier” for becoming a more healthy campus. Alex Lewis, a third-year in medical dietetics, said she chooses not to drink pop because she considers herself “slightly more health conscious” than others. “I guess I just know what makes my body feel good and what makes it not feel good, so I do the best I can in terms of that,” she said. “But nobody’s perfect, we always harp on ‘everything in moderation.’ So there’s nothing bad about having one Coke, but once you get into the bad habits, it kind of goes downhill.” She added, though, she thinks the university is taking necessary steps to addressing nutrition on campus through initiatives such as healthy vending. “With each passing day, we’re getting closer to maximizing nutrition on campus, because with each year there are new ideas and new energy on campus, so I think that’s a positive thing,” she said. Tori Gosy, a first-year in biomedical science, said she has taken advantage of the healthier vending options. “I have noticed the changes because this semester (I’m) trying to go for a more healthy approach,

because last semester I was more busy and didn’t really think about it,” Gosy said. “We’re college students so we’re busy, and we don’t have time to stop, and so we go for whatever’s easiest. So I think that’s great (that there are more healthy options).” She said she doesn’t think the abundance of soft drinks available in vending machines affect students too much. “I don’t think it stands in the way. Obviously there’s temptation if there’s a machine filled with water bottles next to a machines filled with soda, you’re going to be more tempted (to choose soda),” she said. “So (the soda vending machines) are there, and it’s good people have the option but it’s not forced on us.” While Kuzemchak said the university providing the option for students to choose healthy snacks is a step, she noted those options must also be affordable to actually benefit students. “Just making sure students have access to these healthy things, I think that is No. 1, and to make sure those things are affordable, too,” she said. “So often the healthy stuff is more expensive, the salad is more expensive than the burger, whatever it is — just making sure students can afford to make those choices if they’re made available.” Gunther agreed that convenient, healthy options need to be the most accessible to students. “So I think if we’re trying to be the healthiest campus in the U.S., including our faculty, staff and students, then it is for sure a good first step to have only healthy options available in vending, in part because students are so reliant on convenient sources of food,” she said. “Students are by definition living very hectic lifestyles that are sometimes erratic, you know, their schedules are, so there is a heavy reliance of college students on vending as a source for purchasing foods and beverages in part just because of the stage of life that they’re in.”

Parking from 1A apartments through the university, intended for Ohio State students with spouses or children. Students are able to chose between a pass that includes parking “directly around Buckeye Village as well as any C location on campus and overnight parking in Lane and West Lane garages” for about $620 each year or a pass that offers daily and overnight parking on West Campus for $402 yearly. The prices “will increase no more than 5.5 percent for next year,” according to the email. Some students, though, have spoken out against the policy changes. “I wouldn’t say that anyone was really surprised with the email, disappointed yes, but not really surprised,” Andrew Skabelund, a Ph.D. student in African history, said in an email. “Extracting money from single moms and foreign students who are limited in the hours they can work during the week is not something I will stand for.” In Spring Semester 2013, a similar decision was announced and residents were initially told they would have to pay more than $600 for a parking pass. After some residents signed a petition protesting the changes, however, the university announced that parking would remain free for the following year. “I’m not surprised, I almost expected to receive such (an) email. (Petitioning for and getting free parking) last year didn’t really conclude anything,” Shuai Dong, a third-year graduate student in pharmacy who currently

uses a B pass, said in an email. A B pass allows parking on central campus surface lots. Skabelund said a petition was started again this year protesting the costs. “After organizing last spring, we were assured that we wouldn’t have to pay the parking fee CampusParc was asking, and we assumed that CampusParc had listened to our concerns,” he said. “It wasn’t that we were unwilling to pay, it’s just that they were trying to force parking on us that we didn’t really need.” Skabelund said he and his wife have a car but he has never used it to park on campus other than at Buckeye Village. CampusParc took over daily operations of OSU’s parking in September 2012 as part of a 50-year, $483 million contract between OSU and QIC Global Infrastructure. David Hoover, communications director for CampusParc, however, said the decision to charge for parking at Buckeye Village was a university decision and was not made by CampusParc. Hoover referred The Lantern to Student Life for comment. “While CampusParc operates the university’s parking system — including parking at Buckeye Village — the university continues to set policy related to campus parking, including permit classifications,” Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs said in an email. Isaacs also said the university made the decision “in order to be consistent in its approach to parking for students who live in university housing, regardless of location.” The email Buckeye Village residents

received said monthly housing rates will not be raised for the following academic year. Current rent at Buckeye Village is $545 per month for a one-room apartment and $685 per month for a two-bedroom apartment, according to the University Housing website. Isaacs said there is more time this year for residents to make a decision about living for next year, as they were given more notice of the new cost of parking passes. “Last year, because the contract renewal timeline was compressed, the university chose to fund parking at Buckeye Village,” Isaacs said. “This year we are giving residents significantly more time to prepare for this change and make housing decisions for next year.” The email students received said the deadline for signed contracts is March 28. It also said Buckeye Village will continue its bus service to and from campus, which Student Life funds at a cost of about $125,000 annually. Skabelund said he and his wife have discussed the possibility of moving after hearing the announcement of parking increases. “You can find much nicer apartments at comparable prices in the area,” he said. Dong also said she would consider moving. “As for myself as a resident, I don’t feel confident enough living in BV without having to budget out parking fee in the future. So I will definitely look for new places that’s more cost-effective,” she said.

half. But Northwestern, led by Crawford, went on a 13-1 run to take a 25-16 lead. OSU stormed back to finish the half on a 21-8 run and took a 37-33 lead into halftime. Ross scored 13 points in the first half on 4-6 shooting, and the Buckeyes shot 9-11 from the free throw line in the game’s opening 20 minutes. Northwestern shot just 1-2 from the line in the first half. OSU wasted no time extending its lead in the second half, as two free throws by Craft and a 3-pointer by junior forward Sam Thompson within the first minute of play extended the lead to nine. Thompson’s hot hand continued, as he hit back-to-back jumpers to make the score 49-35 with 16:21 left. He said after the win, the Buckeyes decided enough was enough after the Wildcats got up nine. “For whatever reason, we woke up. I think they got up seven or nine and we kind of just drew the line,” Thompson said after the game. “And that’s what we talk about needing to do. We talk about having to have that killer instinct to put teams away and I think on both ends of the ball, we did that.”

The lead swelled to 20 after a jump shot by junior guard Shannon Scott with 12:20 left, and the Wildcats only got as close as 16 the rest of the way. Craft finished with 14 points, passing former Buckeye John Havlicek for 33rd on OSU’s all-time scoring list with 1,232 points. Before getting ejected, Ross poured in 16 points, a team-high. Smith Jr. finished with 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Crawford led all scorers with 22 points for Northwestern. Up next, OSU is set to take on Minnesota Saturday at the Schottenstein Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m., and as the Buckeyes head into their last four regular season games, Matta said he’s liking what he’s seeing. “I like the direction we’re heading. I think in February, we’ve lost one time. This is historically when we’ve tried to play our best basketball,” Matta said. “Just who knows what’s going to happen every time you take the floor. And that’s why we’ve done as much as we possibly can to keep the focus on us in terms of us getting better.”

Ross from 1A Senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. said after the win Ross apologized to the rest of the team in the locker room and is ready to put the incident behind him. “He’s ready to move on from it, and (LaQuinton is) a great player and sometimes those situations get the best of you,” Smith Jr. said. “I think he fully understands what he did and what he shouldn’t have done and I think going forward, everything will be all right.” After the officials sorted out the fouls from the incident, 10 free throws were shot among the two teams, including two each by senior guard Aaron Craft and Williams, making all four. Northwestern redshirt-junior guard JerShon Cobb shot four for the Wildcats, only making two, and freshman forward Nathan Taphorn made one of two to leave the score at 70-53. Aside from the scuffle, the Buckeyes (21-6, 8-6, fifth in the Big Ten) largely used a late first half run that continued early in the second to stave off the Wildcats (12-15, 5-9, ninth in the Big Ten). OSU led early, 15-12, after a layup by senior guard Aaron Craft with 11:34 left in the first

For the briefest of moments, coach Urban Meyer wasn’t sure what the future held for his starting quarterback, Braxton Miller. Miller was at the end of his junior season and potentially off to the NFL, leaving Meyer in search of a new starter. But that feeling of uncertainty didn’t last. “It wasn’t very long … Braxton and I have a very good relationship,” Meyer said Feb. 5 at National Signing Day. “We waited until after the (Orange Bowl). And I told him my opinion that he could become a very high draft pick if he continues to improve, and he said, ‘That’s what I thought.’ It wasn’t much more than that. We met together as a family. Had a very positive conversation and made the decision. Never at one time (did he) say, ‘What should I do?’ Because I wouldn’t tell him. That’s their business. But I gave my opinion as far as how much he could grow as a quarterback.” Miller didn’t have the same hesitation as his coach, and was confident he would come back. “I always knew I was going to eventually make that decision and I was going to come back,” Miller said Wednesday. The junior quarterback said his decision was easy because he still had things he needed to do for OSU. “Getting a degree, things like that,” Miller said. “You want to accomplish things that you didn’t accomplish in your first three years so I felt like I left little things on the field … it’s a lot of things I think about and that’s why I wanted to come back.” Miller announced his decision to return to Ohio State for his senior season Jan. 9 after compiling a 28-8 record in his first three seasons at the helm for the Buckeyes. The two-time defending Big Ten offensive player

Junior quarterback Braxton Miller (5) falls into the end zone during a game against Michigan Nov. 30 at Michigan Stadium. OSU won, 42-41. of the year, Miller’s versatility as a player isn’t lost on anybody involved with OSU football. “To replace a dynamic (player) like a Braxton Miller, what he can do with the football, with his feet, it’s thinning the play, those are all kinds of things that are not coached,” running backs coach Stan Drayton said Feb. 5. “A lot of what he does is not coached. That would have been devastating. Not to say that we would not have survived the moment … What he brings to the table is something special, and it would have been dearly missed.” Miller heads into the 2014 season as OSU’s fourth all-time leader in rushing yards, and although the 2,535 yards needed to tie Archie Griffin for first seems out of reach, he only needs 715 yards to pass Eddie George and take over the second spot on that list.

Women’s basketball looks to salvage season against Nebraska JAMES GREGA JR. Lantern reporter With just four remaining regular season games on the schedule, the Ohio State women’s basketball team (14-14, 4-8) is attempting to salvage what is left of a disappointing season. The Buckeyes sit at .500 on the season and are set to play their fourth straight game against a ranked opponent while trying to end their four-game skid. OSU is 2-7 against opponents ranked by the AP this season. Coach Kevin McGuff said with the current losing streak, he wants to see more leadership from his players, something he said starts with his upperclassmen. “It is kind of a challenge to our seniors,” McGuff said. “They have to rise to the occasion here and make sure we practice well and make sure we are ready to go in these games.” With the season winding down, McGuff said he would like to send the seniors out on a high note. “They are really good kids and they try to do what they can to help their program be good,” McGuff said. “They have done everything we have asked them to do. I have enjoyed coaching them and hopefully we can find a way to put them in a position to be successful down the stretch.” OSU is scheduled to play the first of their final two home games of the season this week against No. 17 Nebraska (19-5, 9-3) Thursday. Sunday afternoon’s matchup against Northwestern (14-11, 4-8) is the Buckeyes’ home finale and Senior Day. With the only meeting against the Cornhuskers this regular season looming, McGuff said his team needs to come ready to play. “They are playing really well … they seem to be peaking at the right time,” McGuff said referencing

Sophomore guard Cait Craft looks for a teammate during a game against Penn State Feb. 9 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 74-54. Nebraska’s current six-game winning streak. “They score the ball really well and are very proficient on offense.” The Cornhuskers are currently third in the Big Ten in scoring offense as they average 75.3 points per game. Nebraska boasts the conference’s top-ranked scoring defense, allowing just 61.9 points per game, which does not bode well for the Buckeye offense which ranks last in the Big Ten in scoring. Echoing her coach, redshirt-junior guard Amy Scullion said Nebraska’s efficiency on offense will prove to be a challenge, but not an insurmountable one.

“Nebraska is tough. They are really disciplined and they execute well,” Scullion said. “But it is a team that — if we defend well — we have a chance (to beat).” For the Buckeyes to be successful, they will need key contributions from role players such as junior guard Raven Ferguson, who said the Buckeyes feel confident against Nebraska’s man-to-man defense. “We enjoy when people play man, because we get a lot of one-on-one situations,” Ferguson said. “We feel like we can beat anybody.” Ferguson, who is OSU’s second-leading scorer with 10.9 points per game despite coming off the bench for most of the season, said one of the biggest challenges for the Buckeyes is their lack of depth. “Our numbers are really low and that affects us as far as subbing goes,” Ferguson said of OSU’s lack of available players. “I know we can still get through that. Those are things that you have to overcome when you play basketball.” Ferguson and senior center Ashley Adams have been the only two constant bench players to see action in recent weeks with junior guard Maleeka Kynard battling a nagging injury, although recently redshirt-freshman Lisa Blair has seen an increase in playing time. The Buckeyes have also been without redshirt-sophomore forward Kalpana Beach for the second straight season after she underwent a second knee surgery in April. Beach has not played since her freshman season in 2011-12, in which she started 30 games. The Buckeyes are scheduled to play Nebraska at the Schottenstein Center Thursday at 7 p.m., and the Senior Day action against Northwestern is slated for a tipoff of noon Sunday.

Coincidentally, Miller amassed exactly that many yards on the ground in 2011, the least productive rushing season he has had as a Buckeye. As long as Miller does not seriously regress as a ball carrier next season, eclipsing George’s career total of 3,768 yards should be an attainable feat. He is also eighth all-time on the career passing yardage list. If Miller can accomplish his third consecutive year of passing for at least 2,000 yards, he would surpass Bobby Hoying for second place and would be within striking distance of Art Schlichter’s record of 7,547 yards. Although the offense does return five starters — Miller, sophomore offensive lineman Taylor Decker,

Even though Columbus is currently experiencing some of its warmest temperatures this winter, the Ohio State baseball team isn’t quite tepid enough. A week after splitting a four-game tournament slate in Florida, OSU (2-2, 0-0) looks to bounce back as it returns to the Sunshine State this weekend for its second tournament in as many weeks. The Buckeyes are set to be a part of the UCF Tournament in Orlando, playing host Central Florida Friday, The Citadel Saturday and Oklahoma Sunday. Redshirt-junior pitcher and first baseman Josh Dezse said it is important OSU has a productive week of practice and rolls into this weekend with a mindset to win. “They are going to be three great teams. These are teams we can’t take lightly. Any games we can’t take lightly if we want those 40 wins to get into the national tournament at the end of the year,” Dezse said. “We’re going to

go down, we’re going to play Buckeye baseball like we know how to play, and hopefully the outcome is in our favor.” Even though Central Florida has a reputation for a being a strong ball club — one that has made it to the NCAA Tournament two of the last three years — junior outfielder Pat Porter said OSU should be in the thick of it Friday. “It should be a good game. I hear they have some pretty good guys and they’re a pretty solid team,” Porter said. “I think we’re a really solid team too though and we can definitely hang with them.” Senior pitcher Greg Greve and junior pitcher Ryan Riga look to set the tone for the Buckeyes in Orlando as the top two starting pitchers in OSU’s rotation. Riga, who led the Buckeyes to a 1-0 win over Auburn Feb. 15 with six shutout innings was named Big Ten co-Pitcher of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday. “Riga was just on point against Auburn. We couldn’t ask him to throw a better game than that. It was very impressive,” Dezse said.

sports Braxton on being named MVP: ‘I cherish the little things’ ERIC SEGER Sports editor Two years. Two Silver Footballs. Ohio State junior quarterback Braxton Miller’s trophy case is getting quite full. Miller received his second consecutive Chicago Tribune Silver Football — an award given annually to the Big Ten’s Most Valuable Player — during a timeout of the OSU men’s basketball game against Northwestern Wednesday. “I cherish things like that, man. They don’t come too easy,” Miller said after receiving the award. “First three years was rough. Two different offensive playbooks, coaches switching in and out. But I just kept my mind straight, just played my game and things like this come upon. Just blessed. I walked past the board the other day, and my name’s right under Troy Smith’s and I texted him and I’m like, ‘Check this out. Man, I’m right behind you, man.’ He said, ‘That’s a good look so keep it up.’” Miller — who was named the Big Ten’s MVP Dec. 12 — became just the fourth player in conference history to win the award twice, and the first repeat winner in 24 years. Chicago Tribune’s Teddy Greenstein presented the award to Miller Wednesday, mentioning that he

Junior quarterback Braxton Miller lifts the Silver Football, given to the Big Ten’s MVP, Feb. 19 at the Schottenstein Center. was one of four players to win the award in backto-back years. “Nobody has ever won it three times, so congrats on the two-peat and good luck on the three-peat,” Greenstein joked. Miller threw for 2,094 yards and 24

touchdowns in 2013, while rushing for an additional 1,068 yards and 12 scores. His 3,162 individual all-purpose yards this season were third-most among all Big Ten players in 2013. “I am incredibly proud of Braxton,” OSU coach Urban Meyer said in a Dec. 12 press release. “To be one of only four players to win this award twice is a testament to the exceptional young man we have quarterbacking the Buckeyes.” OSU’s quarterback announced he would return to Columbus for his senior season Jan. 9, after leading the Buckeyes to 24 straight wins as part of back-to-back 12-win seasons in 2012 and 2013. “I just sat down with the coaches and just observed everything, made sure we were making the right decision. We went over everything and it wasn’t too hard of a decision. At first I was thinking heavy about everything that was going on at the time: Orange Bowl, Big Ten Championship Game, National Championship Game. But after everything settled down, I made the right decision with the coaches,” Miller said Wednesday about his decision to come back. Co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman was on hand to see Miller get his second Silver Football, and Herman said he is more proud of his quarterback for this one rather than the one last year because of how he’s developed as a passer.

“I think this one meant a lot more knowing what he had gone through to improve his overall game. I think he won it the year before, he was the starting quarterback of an undefeated team, played well, made a lot of plays but I think this year he won it for being a quarterback,” Herman said Wednesday. “That was important for him and important for us to take the necessary steps to improve offensively. He’s on a really good trajectory of improvement right now and that makes me proud, probably more proud of this one than the first one because of how he won it and what he had to do to win it.” Despite the 24 straight wins, the Buckeyes only have a pair of Big Ten Leaders Division Titles to show for it after being ineligible for postseason play in 2012 and falling to Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship Game Dec. 7, 34-24. OSU also lost the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl Jan. 3 to No. 12 Clemson, 40-35. Miller and the Buckeyes are set to begin their 2014 campaign Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.


Coach Hanson: Libero the ‘quarterback’ on volleyball court ZOE CHRYSOCHOOS Lantern reporter They’re often the first player to touch the ball when it enters their side of the court. They lead the defense every match while having top-of-the-line passing skills. Those are just some aspects of play that go into fulfilling the role as a libero on the volleyball court. Men’s volleyball consists of six players on each side of the court, and one position in particular stands out from the rest. “We wear a different color jersey and we are not allowed to play front row. Unfortunately, we don’t get to hit the ball or serve,” senior libero Danny Baker said. This specific player is called the libero, and can

be defined as the rearmost roaming defensive player in volleyball, however coach Pete Hanson said the primary skill coaches are looking for in a libero is their passing ability. “The digging skill is very important, but recently we have looked at this position as more as an asset to the offense,” Hanson said. Hanson said a successful libero is similar to the “quarterback” role of volleyball and takes ownership of the back row. Along with excelling in particular athletic skills, this player also must portray many key personality traits. “You are looking for someone who is aggressive, confident, communicative and a take-charge kind of a player, and that is what we try to tell our guys who are playing that position,” Hanson said. A libero is considered to be a defensive and passing specialist that can sub for any player in the back row at any time during the match.

“The main job of my position is to be the defensive leader on the court. It’s the libero’s job to cover as much of the court as possible when the opposing team plays it back to our side,” freshman libero Gabriel Domecus said. Because of the fast-paced nature of volleyball, these players need to have skill on offense and defense and the libero is in charge of communicating with the team and making sure every player is in place and on their toes, ready for whatever is going to happen next. “Our main job is to take control of the defense and passing. We need to communicate before, during and after each play to make sure everyone is on the same page,” Baker said. Next up, OSU is scheduled to take part in a weekend series against Grand Canyon Friday and Saturday at St. John Arena. Both matches are set for 7 p.m.

Baseball from 5A Junior pitcher and closer Trace Dempsey said the Buckeyes have to work on slowing down the game and other fundamentals this week in practice. “We got exposed in a couple areas of the game. It showed there is always stuff to improve on,” Dempsey said. “We’re going to work on that this week here at practice, get a good week of practice in and head down to Orlando.” Scoring no runs in the first or second innings of their first four games, the Buckeyes are aiming to get baserunners on early in Orlando, Porter said. “We talked about how important each pitch of the game is and how important getting the first batter on base is,” Porter said. Dempsey added that even if the Buckeyes do get behind early, they have the ability to compete in any situation. “We can play from behind and we can come

out hot early — we can play all facets of the game,” Dempsey said. After missing all of last season with a stress reaction in his back, Dezse said he was relieved to get a hit in the Buckeyes’ first game of the season against Connecticut last weekend. “It was really nice because I know I was stressing just a little bit. It’s been a while since I’ve been on the field and getting that (hit) out of the way really loosened me up,” Dezse said. With the first weekend behind them and the season underway, all that matters for OSU moving forward is getting victories, Dezse said. “Obviously, we started out hot with two wins and we played OK, but then OK wasn’t to our expectation,” Dezse said. “We expected to play a little bit better than that. What we take away is we have some things to work on.” First pitch between OSU and Central Florida is set for 7:05 p.m. Friday.

sports Troubles in Brazil could pose problem for World Cup ASST. SPORTS editor

While most of the world is invested in the Winter Olympics, there are those of us that are counting down the days until June 12. That day marks the beginning of the DANIEL ROGERS greatest single event in sports: the World Cup. Brazil is hosting this year’s tournament, and the excitement has been building for four years since Spain claimed its first World Cup title in 2010. The questions from pundits are wide-ranging, to say the least. Can the Spaniards repeat? Will Brazil claim its record sixth title, this time on home soil? Will it be Argentina’s Lionel Messi or Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo who will solidify their claim at being the world’s best player by leading their team to glory on the sport’s biggest stage? When one pictures a Brazilian World Cup, images of Pelé, Garrincha, Zico and Ronaldinho come to mind. A truly beautiful version of the beautiful game. But while happiness and excitement run rampant, if you peel back the layers, you will find a much darker scene.

Demonstrators participate in a protest against the rising public transportation prices, and the Brazilian government’s lavish spending for the FIFA Confederations Cup and World Cup soccer events June 19 in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. As the clock ticks down until Brazil take on Croatia in Sao Paulo June 12, there are still issues in Brazil. Five of the 12 host sites for matches at the World Cup were intended to be finished by the end of 2013 but were still under construction as of last Saturday according to a report by The Guardian. The worst of these was the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, which until Tuesday was under threat of

losing its right to host to another city if it did not pass a FIFA inspection. Although the city passed, the idea that this puts on display is a scary one: if Brazil can’t have these stadiums ready by its initial deadline, what faith can we have that it will be ready for the actual tournament? According to the same report by The Guardian, there have also been six worker deaths

junior wide receivers Devin Smith and Evan Spencer, and junior tight end Jeff Heuerman — it loses four starting linemen, something that could play a big role in determining Miller’s success next season. “Now, Braxton Miller also did those things behind four veteran offensive linemen,” Drayton said. “To me, that’s the issue that we think about in that war room there, is how we put five guys in front of him where he can feel comfortable. We know he’s going to continue to develop and mature in his growth toward the game. However, we’ve got to put some guys around him where he’s feeling comfortable.” One of the biggest benefactors of Miller’s decision to stay in school is the corps of Buckeye wide receivers. During his career at OSU, Miller has attempted 668 passes, while all other quarterbacks on the current roster have a combined two attempts. Even though the receivers would have been fine no matter who was under center, wide receivers coach Zach Smith said having Miller’s experience returning is a big boost for the unit.

in the construction and renovation of these stadiums. Protests have also been a big problem in the lead up to the World Cup. Periodically throughout the summer of 2013 and stretching into this year, the youth of Brazil have poured into the streets to protest the money that’s being poured into the World Cup despite a failing economy, which pales in comparison to the violent deaths directly related to Brazilian football that have occurred in the past year. The situation right now seems like a powder keg, and that one little spark could cause the whole thing to blow. Will the tournament go on, even with the chaos in the streets and the questionable safety of the stadiums? Yes. But the likelihood that it will go off without a hitch decreases by the day. For an event so romanticized by soccer faithful — myself included — this is a frightening precedent that is being set. If a country thought to be so ingrained in soccer, particularly on the national level, is struggling like this, what will it be like for those less culturally impassioned by the sport (Qatar 2022 comes to mind). Will I still tune in to every match I can, voraciously cheering on the U.S. Men’s National Team as they attempt to escape their so-called Group of Death and advance? Of course I will. But some part of me will be on the edge of my seat for a different reason. I will be waiting and wondering if and when the next negative thing will happen, and what could happen to the legacy of the greatest sporting event in the world.

“It’s huge. Braxton’s a great player and my guys love Braxton taking the snap,” Zach Smith said. “We’re confident with whoever the quarterback is but having a guy like Braxton that, one, is as talented a quarterback I’ve ever seen and two, if a play’s not there — my guy isn’t open, whatever it is — he can keep a play alive. The number of big plays that come from Braxton Miller’s feet and throwing the ball in a scramble situation … my guys love that.” Herman added that although a lot of what Miller brings back is positive it isn’t all going to be easy for the quarterback. “As improved as he got on the mental side of play of quarterback he can still get a whole lot better,” Herman said Wednesday. “He can make the same leap this year and still have work to do. So just the confidence, the studying of the game, studying of defenses and studying of our plays now that we’ve done kind of the same thing two years in a row.” Miller is set to get his next crack at the field Aug. 30 when OSU is scheduled to play Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.


someone is Looking for You There IS a superior intelligence “out there” -- and a loving one too. Your creator greatly desires for you to acknowledge Him, and to come to know Him and His ways. Don’t be deceived by evolutionism. All creation screams of intelligent design! The mathematical odds of DNA alone evolving are virtually nil. Evolutionism is the only “science” that violates the laws of thermodynamics right from the start, and is not based on any observation. God exists, and the Bible is His Word. What is unique about the Bible? For one thing, it is the only book with fulfilled prophecy. Check it out yourself! For starters, try (current situation) Psalm 83 and Zechariah 12; (reformation of Israel after nearly 1900 years) Isaiah 11:11-12, Isaiah 43:5-6, Isaiah 66:8, Jeremiah 16:14-15, Jeremiah 31:7-10, Amos 9:9-15, Ezekiel 34:12-31, and Ezekiel 36; (crucifixion/ suffering of Christ) Psalm 22 and Isaiah 53; (future situation) Zechariah 13:7-14:21. “Too hard to read and understand” you say? Try the KJV/Amplified parallel bible (book) or KJV/Amplified/Complete Jewish parallel bible (, and for a strict literal translation from the originals try Young’s Literal. “It’s all in how you interpret it” you say? The Bible, despite numerous transcribers over hundreds of years, is remarkably consistent, and interprets itself. Our creator is the actual author (2Peter 1:1621). Beware of modern, liberal translations from “the higher critics” which seriously distort the Word! Finally, if there is a God, why is there so much evil? We have rejected God, and now see what it is like to live in a world where God has permitted us (temporarily) to rule ourselves. Give up your lusts, and come to God and follow His ways (Jude 1:18-25). All that this world has to offer is as nothing compared to what He has in store for those who love Him

but they’re all friends. They visit each other’s shops and go to each other’s events,” Stiffler-Dean said. Mick Evans, managing partner for retail operations at One Line Coffee, located at 745 N. High St., said this collaboration and competition is making the coffee industry stronger in Columbus. “We’re on the precipice of even greater collaboration, as the coffee culture has really honed and developed. But it’s also at the point where style is becoming very important, and shops are becoming more specialized. There’s been an evolution of quality that just wasn’t here a couple years ago, and the competition between different shops has helped make everyone better,” Evans said. One of the ways Columbus’ coffee community gathers is through the North Market Coffee Roast — a public event held at the North Market where roasters and shops get together to educate, celebrate and show off what they know about coffee for the public. North Market Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe said the event is growing. “In past years, it was a collection of local coffee roasters that gathered for a day at the market and provided samples of their wares. This year we are moving the event a month later and outside due to the popularity — last year we had thousands show up and it was inside,” Wolfe said in an email. Wolfe further explained Columbus’ local coffee growth by comparing it to his experiences on the West Coast. “Columbus is at the forefront of local coffee for sure. I moved from L.A. three years ago and there were not nearly the amount of local roasters as we have here, there are 10 million folks there and most of them drink Starbucks,” Wolfe said. McIntyre said the North Market Coffee Roast was one of the reasons Columbus made her list. “I loved the North Market Coffee Roast, it was just so cool. You have all these people coming together from all aspects of the industry, and people are really enthusiastic about it, which was exciting to see,” McIntyre said. Erik Fenstermacher, manager of campus’ Boston Stoker, located at 1660 Neil Ave., said it is the customers who are making the local coffee industry grow. “Each year, increasingly higher standards are being set from customers, which is a great thing for the industry,” Fenstermacher said.

NICK ROLL Lantern reporter

Columbus might have been off the grid for coffee aficionados in the past, but not for much longer. Emily McIntyre, writer for coffee website, gave Columbus and four other cities — Houston, Oklahoma City, Sacramento, Calif., and San Diego — attention for their well-developed, yet under the radar, coffee communities in her article “5 Underrated Coffee Cities” on the coffee website. McIntyre said that the criteria for her list — which mentioned local businesses such as Café Brioso, One Line Coffee and Boston Stoker — required a different number of things. “First of all, there have to be a certain number of independent shops and a certain number of roasters. Then there’s the quality aspect, which varies a lot and makes cities unique. The people involved in the coffee culture have to people (who are) enthusiastic and knowledgeable as well,” McIntyre said. McIntyre also added that the “maturity of the coffee scene” is what usually separates the underground cities from the coffee giants — New York, Portland and Seattle — along with a lack of press coverage. Some members of Columbus’ coffee industry shared similar sentiments. “The coffee culture in Columbus is under the radar even here, but the national recognition it’s been getting has legitimized it for the people in Columbus,” said Jeff Davis, president of Café Brioso, a coffee house and roaster located downtown at 14 E. Gay St. Tim Stiffler-Dean, CEO of Guddina Coffee, a website that helps people purchase micro-roasted coffee and find shops in their area, said the community as a whole is what makes Columbus’ coffee stand out. “With the guys in Columbus, it’s a healthy but friendly competition. They’re all doing their own thing, all trying to make better experiences for people, MATTHEW LOVETT / Asst. arts editor

behind Kinetic is to offer visitors a menu based on an athlete’s ideal diet, geared toward the health-conscious. “(We originally wanted to create) a restaurant designed for athletes,” Tuchow said. “So like fueling your body before a workout, after a workout and really getting the maximum potential you can get from work and practices and everything that you do.” Tuchow and O’Brien came together as business partners after “a decade plus” of friendship. O’Brien said the two went to the same elementary school and have been friends ever since. “We’ve known each other for half of our lives,” Tuchow added. The concept for Kinetic emerged after a lunch meeting between the two friends last March, Tuchow said.

“At the time, I (had) neat ideas for products and entrepreneurial ventures,” he said. “And one of Andy’s projects that he was working on at school was really related to one of the ideas that I had. They were both basically healthier eating, fast-casual dining restaurants or something (similar).” O’Brien said the pair ultimately decided to invest in a food truck because of the lower overhead costs of owning a mobile kitchen compared to a traditional restaurant. “Starting a restaurant (often) costs upwards of a million dollars, whereas the startup cost of a food truck is much lower,” he said. “It’s more obtainable for our circumstances, being recent college graduates.” O’Brien also said owning and operating a food

Ellen Page is gay, ‘The Voice’ loses judge in pop headlines

Actress Ellen Page, who announced Feb. 14 she was gay in a speech given at Time to THRIVE in Las Vegas.

SALLEE ANN RUIBAL Lantern reporter This is part of a weekly series called “Pop Opinionsâ€? where The Lantern offers its take on the week’s pop culture news. Ellen Page Is Gay Actress Ellen Page, known for her lead role in “Juno,â€? announced Friday at the Human Rights Campaign’s Time to THRIVE event that she is gay. Time to THRIVE was a conference held in Las Vegas to promote issues of the gay community. “I’m here today because I am gay. And because ‌ maybe I can make a difference,â€? Page told the crowd. People being honest about themselves is always a good thing. I don’t have a snarky comment about that. Wittle Wentz “Pete Wentz is having a baby!â€? I announced to my boyfriend at lunch. I was focused on my iPhone (typical) and he was focused on food (so typical). “Who’s that again?â€? he asked. I stared at him in disbelief as he stared at me with a mouth full of pasta. It was then that I remembered the wise words of my roommate, “Most people outgrew their sixth-grade punk phase, Sallee.â€? If you outgrew your skinny jeans and eyeliner, let me refresh your memory. Pete Wentz is the bassist of (recently reunited) rock band Fall Out Boy — “Sugar We’re Goin’ Downâ€? and “Thnks fr th Mmrsâ€? ring any head-banging bells? His baby mama is girlfriend and model Meagan Camper. All I know about her is that her eyebrows are intense and it scares me. Wentz announced the big news Monday via Instagram, as all big news should be. He already has a 5-year-old son, Bronx, with ex-wife Ashlee Simpson.

Frontman Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon performs at the Schottenstein Center Feb. 18. Visit for a review of the show.

I am hoping the new Wittle Wentz will have a creative name too, like Brooklyn or Manhattan. Maybe even Queens? Cee Lo Leaves “Voice� Cee Lo Green announced on “Ellen� (DeGeneres, not Page) Wednesday that he will not be returning to NBC’s “The Voice� after his hiatus this season. I know what you’re thinking: Who still watches “The Voice?� Answer: My mother. My mother loves Cee Lo. Many women watch “The Voice� to stare at the “Sexiest Man Alive,� Adam Levine. My mother watches for Cee Lo and his outrageous outfits and elegant cat, Purrfect. “The Voice� might drop to zero viewers now but my mother has nothing to worry about. Cee Lo says he is working with NBC on “several new co-ventures including a new music show.� Good, ‘cause we didn’t have enough of those already.

Looking for recent or soon-to-be graduates for Summer 2014!

Miley’s Bangin’ (and Not So Bangin’) Wardrobe Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz Tour kicked off in Vancouver on Valentine’s Day. If there’s one thing the Internet preys over, it’s Miley’s fashion. And they have been feasting on photos of her concert costumes. I actually tend to like Miley’s style. I like the short hair. I am a huge red lipstick fan. Girl shares my love of leather (jackets) too. She has a Jessica Rabbitinspired red dress she wears during the concert that I would slay for. There’s also a bedazzled oversized shirt with her face on it, which at first is a little weird, but let’s be honest — if I was famous enough to get away with it, I so would. A marijuana leaf printed leotard though? A leotard that’s cut so high up that I get killer wedgies just looking at it? No thank you. OMG IDC LOL News broke Tuesday that Adam Brody (“The O.C.�) and Leighton Meester (“Gossip Girl�) secretly got married. I was always listening to Fall Out Boy when the girls that sat in front of me in high school algebra discussed those shows, so this has no significance to me.

[ spotlight] Columbus’ Own

In an attempt to shine light on local music, The Lantern’s “Columbus’ Own� is a weekly series that will profile a new Columbus band every week.

Columbus musician goes from rapping to reggae in band Shrub MADELINE POEDTKE Lantern reporter Reggae band Shrub is making waves in the Midwest music scene. Jay Shawberry, also known as Jay Shrub, vocalist and founder of the Columbus-based band, said music has always been something he wanted to do. Circa 2009, Shawberry said he was rapping and producing music in his basement when he realized he wanted to go further. “I put an ad on Craigslist and found a guitar player who’s also a producer within 10 minutes of putting the ad up,â€? Shawberry said. Shawberry then hired additional studio musicians and started creating Shrub’s first EP “SeĂąorita,â€? which was released in February 2010, according to the album’s iTunes page. “At the time, we didn’t really have a band, it was more of a studio thing,â€? Shawberry said. “When (the album) came out, we were happy with the product so we decided to get all the studio musicians together and go play live shows.â€? Shrub played its first live gig in March 2010. Since then, Shawberry said he and rapper Jason “Lyricalâ€? Woodward are the only remaining original members. “The personnel in the band just (kept) changing over time and it feels like now we have the right formula,â€? Shawberry said. When he was a student at Bowling Green State University,

Kinetic from 8A truck is financially a “lean business,â€? and with the money saved by operating with a smaller staff, Kinetic can afford to incorporate high-quality local ingredients into its dishes. “Obviously, when you’re getting something that’s not just from a factory, it’s going to be a little more expensive,â€? O’Brien said of Kinetic’s use of locallysourced ingredients. “But we’ve kind of built that into our business model.â€? Tuchow and O’Brien said Kinetic’s menu is still a work in progress, but the truck is set to offer noodle, grain and salad bowls, as well as smoothies and snacks. Customers have the opportunity to create their own combination bowls consisting of a base, protein and fresh vegetables. Other options include 20 pre-set bowls designed by O’Brien. “I have a culinary background ‌ I’ve worked in kitchens my whole life,â€? O’Brien said. “So I kind of know what goes well together.â€? Some of Kinetic’s pre-set bowl combinations include

Shawberry said he developed an interest in reggae music while working at a record store. “I had always been a fan of the (reggae) stuff on the radio like UB40 or Jimmy Cliff,� Shawberry said. “So I had heard reggae but now I was listening to things I’d never heard of before (at the record store).� Shawberry said his interest heightened when he saw reggae artists Burning Spear, Buju Banton and Beres Hammond perform at Nautica Pavilion in Cleveland in 1997. “I could not believe what I was feeling listening to this music,� Shawberry said. “(Hip-hop) was what I was into up until that point, and then one day, it completely changed.� After that concert, Shawberry said he “just fell in love� with the genre. “It’s not even the roots thing or just dancehall or dub or anything like that; it’s everything about (reggae) that I love and appreciate,� Shawberry said. After various changes in Shrub’s line-up, Shawberry said he was excited to have bass player Benny Coleman join the band in 2013. “(Coleman) plays bass and the kid loves reggae as much as I do and you get to that point where (the band) is starting to come together now,� Shawberry said. “You find people that have common interests and that’s the key to making the sound we want.� Coleman, a first-year in jazz studies and bass performance at Ohio State, said he first got into music because his dad is a drummer.

a buffalo chicken bowl, a barbecue chicken bowl and a steak fajita bowl. Tuchow and O’Brien said they plan on making the menu at Kinetic “accessible� to customers with specific eating habits and dietary restrictions, as several items at Kinetic are set to be gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian or vegan. “I am kind of applying things I learned in the nutrition and food science classes I’ve taken,� O’Brien said. “I’ve just designed the menu with those kind of dietary restrictions in mind.� Pricing on the prototype menu shows Kinetic’s bowls ranging from $7 for a chicken bowl to $8 for other proteins, like steak and tofu. Smoothies range from $4 to $6 for 16- and 32-ounce sizes, respectively. Tuchow and O’Brien said they hope Kinetic’s menu encourages visitors to consider the fuel they put into their bodies. “(Kinetic) is a word that to me inspires movement, like kinetic energy,� Tuchow said. “Our slogan, ‘What fuels you?’ kind of goes to that energy.� Bailey Oliver, a second-year in marketing, said

eating healthy food on campus can sometimes be a challenge. “It’s really hard. Even the salads at the library cafes and stuff aren’t even that healthy,� she said. Oliver said she would be willing to try Kinetic’s food, depending on the convenience of the truck location. Justin Faulhaber, a first-year in history, said he would pay a visit to Kinetic after reading through the online menu. “I feel like I would check it out,� he said. “The smoothies looked good.� Although Kinetic is not slated to open until spring and details about where they plan to park their truck have yet to be hashed out, Tuchow and O’Brien are already looking toward the future. “We have this spirit of ‘We’re young and we can do this,’� Tuchow said. “We have been meeting the right people and we want to take on this challenge.� Like most food trucks, Kinetic’s daily location is set to be announced to followers via social media. “(Kinetic) will kind of be around everywhere,�

O’Brien said. “Really the only way to know (where we are each day) is to follow us on Twitter.� Tuchow also said he hopes to expand Kinetic’s impact on the Columbus community by using “social media for social good.� “Our generation likes to touch on social good and give back to the people around them and all of those good things,� he said. “We are so down-tothe-bone healthy and we’re doing it in such a unique way with local, farm-fresh (ingredients) and with the sustainability practices that we’ll be taking. I feel like that’s what sets us apart.�
