Student leaders react to Kasich’s funding points

Ohio Gov. John Kasich speaks at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., Aug. 28, 2012.

FRANCIS PELLICCIARO Lantern reporter Some Ohio State student leaders had mixed reactions to Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s college initiatives, including tying state funding for colleges to graduation rates and giving veterans college credit based on their training. The Republican governor, who has been named by some outlets as a potential presidential candidate for 2016, gave his State of the State speech Monday evening in Medina, Ohio. “They will only get paid if students complete courses or students get degrees,” Kasich said. “College and universities will not get any of these state dollars that have gone to them traditionally based on enrollment.” Miranda Onnen, vice chair of OSU College Republicans and a thirdyear in political science and economics, said she thinks that shift is an important one. “It’s important that we have a culture in Ohio that encourages graduation of college such that students are graduating with less debt. I think between the schools only receiving state funding based on a pattern of success and the increased emphasis on vocation schools, the speech had some great ideas for the future of education in Ohio,” Onnen said in an email. Undergraduate Student Government President Taylor Stepp, a fourth-year in public affairs, said he was proud of what former OSU President E. Gordon Gee had done related to the initiative. “President Gee led this effort,” Stepp said. “I applaud the governor

Winning basketball games, conference championships and making deep runs in the NCAA Tournament likely earns the support of a fan base, boosters and alumni — especially at a school like Ohio State. Buckeye coach Thad Matta has certainly done that in what is now his 10th season at the helm of the men’s basketball program, and is notably the only coach in the country to lead his team to four straight Sweet Sixteens. His record is an impressive 121-27 in those four years, with each team notching at least 28 wins each season. But how does his boss think of him? Apparently, pretty highly. The same goes for when Matta evaluated three assistant coaches, Jeff Boals, Dave Dickerson and Greg Paulus, according to a public records request submitted Feb. 4 by The Lantern and received Monday. Aside from wanting Matta “to assist the department in promoting early non-conference games to strengthen interest and attendance,” OSU athletic director and recently promoted Vice President Gene Smith had nothing but good things to say about the head coach of the men’s basketball team. Smith said Matta “continues to be one of the premier coaches in the country” and called his leadership “outstanding” in the overall comments section of the review. The Buckeyes dominated in the non-conference portion of this season, winning all 13 games on their way to being ranked as high as No. 3 in the country. They won each non-conference game by at least 10 points, except the 64-61 decision against Notre Dame Dec. 21 at Madison Square Garden. The weak non-conference slate might have hurt OSU down the road, as it later dropped five of seven conference games in January. In 2012-13, OSU finished 29-8 overall, winning the Big Ten Conference Tournament and earning a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Buckeyes advanced to the Elite Eight before falling to Wichita State, 70-66. Overall, though, Smith liked the product he saw on the court. “This past year was another remarkable performance competing in a fourth Sweet 16 in a row and advancing to the Elite 8,” Smith said in the review. “The team exceeded all public expectations.”

that’s about 1.6 in every 100 students at OSU


Wake up. Go to class. Work. Do homework. Sleep. Repeat. Some students who work full-time and are enrolled as full-time students at Ohio State leave themselves little room for anything but their responsibilities. Jeff Adams, a third-year in business who works part-time and goes to school full-time, said prior to coming to OSU, he attempted to work 30 hours a week and attend school full-time at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, but ended up dropping out of school. “Some people are gifted and have the extraordinary ability to manage their time and absorb information from their classes,” Adams said. “Out of all the people I have met, there are not that many of them who can, and I certainly can’t do it.” But there are some who balance the workload: of the more than 44,200 undergraduate students enrolled at OSU’s Columbus campus, 1.6 percent work 40 hours a week or more, according to data from the 2012 National College Health Assessment provided in an email from OSU spokesman Gary Lewis.

Matta’s base salary was $3.2 million last year, but he missed out on a $20,000 bonus and a guaranteed extra year added onto his contract because the Buckeyes failed to win at least a share of the Big Ten regular season title. Of all four coaches, Matta’s review with Smith was the only one conducted Sept. 4, despite an athletic department requirement in the report that all completed reviews need to be turned in to Human Resources by July 1. All others were completed on that date. Each coach’s performance — except

Paulus, who was promoted from the team’s video coordinator position to assistant coach July 1 — is broken down into eight subheads: Academic Success of Program, Competitive Success of Program, Commitment to Compliance, Student-Athlete Welfare, Leadership, Communication, Budget Management and Public Relations/Donor Relations. Smith used the categories to assess Matta’s performance, and most were marked

Adams said there are significant differences between being a full-time employee and a full-time student. “There is a lot of time management and personal responsibility involved when you’re a full-time student. When you work full-time, your typical schedule is that you wake up at 5 a.m. … you work until 3 p.m. and the day is done,” he said. “At school, you constantly (have) something going on. There might be something that’s due tomorrow, something that’s due tonight or something that’s due within a week from now. On top of that, your schedule changes every semester, so you have to adjust to that, too.” Fletcher Fiely, a fourth-year in English, said he balances an internship, two part-time jobs and a fulltime school schedule at OSU. “At my restaurant job, I work around 25 hours a week, at my other job at a laundromat, I also work around 25 hours a week, and at my internship, I work 15 hours a week, and I take 12 credit hours,” Fiely said. With his day starting at 8 a.m., Fiely said he usually doesn’t get home until about 10:30 p.m. or 11 p.m. “I always tell people I’d have a better GPA if I had time,” Fiely said. “I’m not doing bad in school, but

Certain animals used for research are no longer allowed to be transported in personal vehicles around campus, among other policy changes concerning the treatment of research animals at Ohio State. The animals are used for research ranging from studying diabetes in cats and monkeys to looking at how diseases progress in various animals. The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, housed within the Office of Responsible Research Practices at OSU, is responsible for updating these policies and has revised five since the beginning of December. Jeff Grabmeier, senior director of research and innovation communications at OSU, said the goal of the IACUC is to protect the research animals. “The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee is composed of faculty members, staff members and institutional veterinarians who review research protocols to ensure the safety and welfare of research animals at Ohio State, inspect facilities where animals are housed to ensure that they meet regulatory standards and make policies that govern the care and use of research animals across the institution,” Grabmeier said in an email. Updates made to the “Movement of Animals Outside the Animal Housing Location” policy Jan. 13 ban the transportation of animals classified as ABSL-2 or higher in personal vehicles around campus. ABSL-2 refers to Animal Biosafety Level 2, a classification indicating that the animal has been “infected with agents associated with human disease and pose moderate hazards to personnel and the environment,” according to the United States’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Derek Grossman, a third-year in animal sciences, said he approves of the policy updates.

“If it directly benefits the safety of the animals and people on campus, then it’s a good thing,” said Grossman, who worked on feline diabetes research with the College of Veterinary Medicine last summer. “Cats would get stressed because they had to get blood taken a lot and their glucose levels would spike because of this. My job was to make sure during procedures that they were calm and not moving around. If the needle is in the arm and they move or jerk, they could nick a vein,” Grossman said. Grossman said he was pleased with the treatment of the research cats. “The cages weren’t small, they had a lot of room to walk around. They had a litter box and toys. The rest of the day when they weren’t in a procedure room, they were out in open rooms with all sorts of climbing area and toys,” Grossman said. Grossman said his experience altered his view on research animal care. “With cats, you can tell exactly how they’re acting and (the cats he worked with) were never upset. I thought animals in

campus Leave a book, take a book in local Little Free Libraries Emily Hitchcock Lantern reporter Have a book? Leave a book. Need a book? Take a book. Little Free Libraries are moving closer to Ohio State’s campus and some students said they want to help spread the word. Todd Bol of Hudson, Wis., built a library box modeled after a schoolhouse in 2009, placed it in his front yard and filled it with free books for his neighbors, according to the Little Free Library website. The idea caught on and there are now an estimated 10,000 to 12,000 registered Little Free Libraries around the world. Rick Brooks, the Little Free Library co-founder and program director, said popularity isn’t the goal though. “It is wonderful that the Little Free Libraries are so popular, but the real value is that it is individual people and neighbors getting to know each other,” Brooks said. “It’s great to be big, but it’s also important to be small and to value the small parts.” Brooks said he met Todd Bol while teaching a workshop in Hudson, Wis. They began exploring social enterprise models and decided to build on the interest they had already seen in Bol’s first library. The idea took off in 2010 when they brought some Little Free Libraries to Madison, Wis., at a street fair after installing them on a bike path, and they’ve been expanding ever since. One of these unconventional libraries is wedged between a light pole and a magazine box in downtown Columbus on East Gay Street. Silver paint covers what was once a newspaper dispenser and bold black letters read, “Free Books.” The libraries are stocked by members of their communities. There are no late fees, no library cards and no telling what books you might find within. About two miles from OSU, Sandy Coen and Florence Jain operate their own Little Free Library from their front yard on Oakland Park Avenue in Clintonville. “You can’t steal a free book,” Coen said. “Our library gives a lot

Their front yard library is a whimsical house-shaped box bearing the inscription, “My Treasures Are Within, Read a book — Return a book.” Brooks said he’s noticed a trend in the kind of books people put in the boxes.

“The books that we hope people are putting in, and they seem to be putting in, are not the books they want to get rid of,”​Brooks said. “They are their favorite books and they want to share the same pleasure they had with somebody else.” The Little Free Library website has a registration system that allows library builders to include their library location on a map. “As far as we know, we’re the first ones in Ohio to have one registered on the website and now there are at least 15,” Coen said. Not all library builders choose to register their creations with the Little Free Library website. Several uncharted free libraries can be found in Columbus, discoverable only by observation. Coen said he does not think many OSU students know of the Little Free Libraries yet, but he hopes the idea will spread. Justin Dunwiddie, a fourth-year in marketing and a student circulation assistant at William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library, said if Little Free Libraries were promoted to students around campus, the idea would catch on quickly at OSU. “The idea of broadening knowledge for anyone and everyone is a great idea,” Dunwiddie said. Jeremy Kundtz, a second-year in biological engineering, said he plans to build his own Little Free Library to put in his front yard on campus. “Words are important and nobody reads or knows what’s going on,” Kundtz said. “If you can get people off of social media and reading, I think it’s a great idea.” Charlie Fryer, a second-year in chemistry, said he was looking at graffiti around East 15th Avenue and North High Street when he first noticed a Little Free Library. He said from what he could tell, many OSU students have not heard of Little Free Libraries or noticed them around Columbus, but he likes the idea. “You never know what you’re going to find there, and there might be a cool book that has more personality to it,” Fryer said. “It’s interesting to think who else might have owned that book before.”

Sharrell Hassell-Goodman was named director of Sorority and Fraternity Life.

The faces of Ohio State’s Sorority and Fraternity Life staff are the same, but their roles and titles have shifted. Sharrell Hassell-Goodman was named director of Sorority and Fraternity Life, effective Feb. 14, after serving as the assistant director. Ryan Lovell, who was the parent, family and alumni relations contact for Student Life, is now the senior director for parent and family and Greek Life, according to an email sent to the Greek community Feb. 14. Dave Isaacs, spokesman for Student Life, said the positions are new and reflect Greek Life’s growing needs. “There are new titles, new positions, but no one leaves,” he said. Hassell-Goodman earned about $49,000 in 2013, and Lovell made about $78,000 in 2013, according to the Columbus Business First DataCenter. Isaacs said in an email Friday he was unsure if the two would be receiving new salaries, but if they are, that information hadn’t been processed yet. Lovell said the new positions are a better fit for Greek Life. “To better position our Greek community for continued successes, we felt it beneficial to better align the structure of the organization with others within Student Life, which are led by a director,” he said in an email.

Med school dean to leave OSU michele theodore Copy chief The dean of the Ohio State College of Medicine is set to head south to assume a new job in May. Dr. Charles Lockwood, current dean, is set to become the new senior vice president of the health system at the University of South Florida, where he will also serve as dean of the USF Morsani College of Medicine. He is slated to stay in his position at OSU through Summer Commencement May 4, said Bob Mackle, spokesman for the OSU Wexner Medical Center. Lockwood was unavailable for comment Monday. Lockwood’s salary in 2013 was more than $731,000, according to the Columbus Business First DataCenter. His salary is set to be $775,000 at USF, according to local Florida media outlets. He has been at OSU since September 2011 and is also the vice president for health sciences and a professor of

Research from 1A research weren’t supposed to be enjoying it but these cats were honestly treated just as well, if not better, than certain house cats,” Grossman said. After the trial, the cats were given homes, Grossman said. “A few of the residents from vet school took some, and the others were put up for adoption,” he said. Not all research animals, however, are so lucky. Olivia Stephenson, third-year in animal sciences and publicity chair for OSU’s Pre-Veterinary Medical Association Club, said she has worked with two rhesus macaque monkeys for diabetes research in the Department of Surgery for the past year. “I take their blood glucose. I prick them with a needle, draw their blood and put it on a reader that tells you what their blood sugar is. Then I give them the appropriate dose of insulin and I feed them,” Stephenson said. Stephenson said overall, she thinks the living conditions of the monkeys, who are intentionally made diabetic, are satisfactory. She wishes, though, they had space outside of their cages to use. “They get toys, like dog toys, but they don’t get huge rooms which is what I wish (the monkeys had). They’re in the cages 24/7 and they don’t come out.


obstetrics and gynecology, according to the College of Medicine website. Before he came to OSU, he was a professor and a chair of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the Yale University School of Medicine. Prior to that, he served as a professor and chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the New York University School of Medicine. He received a bachelor’s of science from Brown University, his medical degree from University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and his master’s of science from Harvard University School of Public Health. Dr. Edmund Funai is set to take over as interim dean May 5. He is currently a professor of obstetrics and gynecology, vice chair of clinical affairs and associate dean for administration at the OSU College of Medicine. Mackle said he did not know how long it would take to find a permanent replacement for Lockwood.

When I first went (and saw this), I was really sad,” Stephenson said. Stephenson said she understands the need for confinement though. “I would like for them to get better treatment, but that would compromise our research. I think they treat them as well as they can, given the circumstances. Mine get to watch Disney movies every day,” Stephenson said. Stephenson said she would like to see places for monkeys to go after the research is over, just as cats used for research have. “With monkeys, you can’t have someone adopt them. Basically when we’re done with the study, they have to die because no sanctuaries will take care of them with diabetes. I would like to see a sanctuary (where) they can go to be happy,” Stephenson said. Other recently updated policies include “Housing Requirements for Animals,” “Validate the Effectiveness of Manual Sanitation,” “CO2 Euthanasia of Rodents including Guinea Pigs” and “Rodent Surgery,” all of which were revised Dec. 20, according to the ORRP website. Policies are changed fairly regularly, Grabmeier said. “The IACUC regularly monitors federal and international groups that issue regulations and

“This facilitated making Sharrell the director of Greek Life and adding her voice to our Student Life leadership team.” Hassell-Goodman has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education, a master’s degree in education leadership and curriculum development and a master’s degree in college student personnel from Miami University. She has worked for the OSU Greek Life community since 2008, according to the Greek Life email. She said she looks forward to continuing the progress Greek Life has made. “Over the past several years, our community has seen tremendous growth, continued academic successes and the development of outstanding student leaders. With over 4,000 members, students who participate in sororities and fraternities have a strong footprint at Ohio State,” Hassell-Goodman said in an email Lovell sent to The Lantern. “As a Greek Life staff within the Office of Student Life, we strive to continue to challenge the members of our community to better themselves within these tenets of leadership, scholarship and service.” Lovell was the assistant director of Greek Life from 2007-09. In his new position, he will work on implementing the Greek housing standard as part of OSU’s secondyear on-campus living requirement, set to begin Fall Semester 2016, and is slated to help with the implementation of the Second-Year Transformational Experience Program in the Greek Life community, the email said.

Work from 1A there’s no doubt in my mind I could have a 4.0 if it weren’t for all of the work that I do.” Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs said Student Life’s Counseling and Consultation Service can help busy students sort through the stresses of their responsibilities. “Balance is the key for anyone who is juggling a great deal in their life,” Isaacs said. Lauren France, a second-year in health sciences, said she takes 18 credit hours but does not work during the school year because she feels her grades would suffer. “I feel like grades are more important and I don’t think I could manage doing both,” France said. Fiely said, though, for him it isn’t a choice of which is more important. “I have to survive. I have rent, I live in a house and I have bills to pay,” Fiely said. “(But) I don’t do it out of necessity … I kind of do it to keep myself motivated more than out of necessity. (You’ve) got to keep

recommendations regarding the care and use of research animals. Whenever these groups change their policies, the IACUC determines if policies at Ohio State should change as a result,” Grabmeier said. Federal and international regulations are not the only source of updates, said Jan Weisenberger, senior associate vice president in the OSU Office of Research, in an email Grabmeier sent to The Lantern. “Researchers can suggest a change to a policy at any time based on their working knowledge. IACUC reviews all policies at least every three years,” Weisenberger said. Weisenberger said what happens to animals once the experiment is over depends on research protocol. “In some cases, animals are humanely euthanized so that researchers can study their tissues or organs to provide information on how diseases progress and the effectiveness of possible treatments,” Weisenberger said. Stephenson said it’s sad to think about the lives of the monkeys used in research. “They were born and taught the proper way to stand so we can inject their insulin. I wish they could experience what it’s like to live freely,” she said.

yourself busy, keep working so you don’t get lazy. It’s so easy to fall into that trap of laziness.” Fiely said he works in a social life when he can and added that breaks are a must. “By the end of every semester, I’m going insane,” Fiely said. “It takes a toll on you physically, mentally — you just get tired and you have to take a day off.” Fiely said the routine of working all the time for two or three years can leave him feeling guilty and anxious if he takes time off, and said it’s easy to become envious and resentful of people who don’t work as much. “It makes me mad sometimes when people try to act like they’re so busy with school,” Fiely said. “Do you know how many things I have to half-ass that I didn’t really want to half-ass?” Fiely said he wants to continue to work hard after he graduates, though. “I hope I always work hard but I hope I get to do it by choice and not by obligation,” Fiely said.

Matta from 1A as “strengths,” with the exception of Commitment to Compliance, Budget Management and Public Relations/Donor Relations. Matta “met performance standards” in those three areas, as noted in the report. OSU’s head coach also dished out positive feedback to his three current assistants in Boals, Dickerson and Paulus in the individual reviews that Matta filled out for each coach. Matta marked each of the eight subheads a strength for Dickerson, the team’s associate head coach, noting his coaching prowess as a reason for the Elite Eight run last year. “Dave’s coaching expertise played a major role in helping our players to be prepared for success on the court,” Matta said in the review. “With his help, our team (won) the 2012-13 Big Ten Tournament Title, and reached the NCAA Elite Eight Round this year.” Matta mentioned winning the 2013-14 Big Ten Conference Championship and reaching the NCAA Final Four as goals and areas of focus for the upcoming year. OSU is currently ranked No. 22 and sits in a tie for fourth place in the conference, 2 ½ games behind No. 16 Michigan. Matta listed no areas that Dickerson needed to improve on overall after last season, noting that his “commitment to the quality of our program and the welfare of our student-athletes is evident in his strong coaching knowledge, and his professional behavior on and off the court.” Boals also received high marks from Matta, but his performance only “met performance standards” in a few areas of the review. Among them are keeping tracking of student-athlete’s progress academically, implementing an appropriate conditioning program for all team members, effectively handling issues or concerns brought up by parents of the student-athletes and following institutional purchasing procedures in terms of the program’s budget. Overall, though, Matta was pleased with

Kasich from 1A for making graduation such a priority for our public education institutions in Ohio.” College Democrats President Vince Hayden, a third-year in political science, said, though, he thinks the plan will benefit OSU but not all schools, adding that it’s easy to find graduation rates, but much more difficult to look at the number of students passing classes. Kasich said he wants to expand vocational training in public schools. “We want kids to have a connection to (vocational education) in the 7th grade,” Kasich said. He also announced plans to give veteran military service members college credit for military training and experience they have had. “If you can drive a truck from Kandahar to Kabul, Afghanistan, you can drive a truck from Columbus to Cleveland,” Kasich said. Stepp said he thinks it makes sense to give veterans college credit for their experiences. “We owe such a tremendous amount to our veterans,” he said. Kasich also proposed a round of tax cuts that would bring Ohio’s income tax rate to less than five percent. He said he wants to reward working people by keeping more of their money in their own hands.

Boals’ work, particularly in preparing the players defensively. “Jeff has been a great asset to our university and our men’s basketball program. He has done a very good job recruiting high character kids who want to earn their degree,” Matta said in the review. “He has done a very good job coaching and assisting with our defensive efforts.” In the area denoted “opportunities for improvement,” Matta noted Boals’ relationships with the players’ parents could be better. “Continue to improve on parent relationships and continue to improve on mentoring members of our staff,” Matta said. “Needs to keep developing professionally and bringing new ideas to the staff.” Paulus’ review is more brief than the other coaches’ because last season he was the team’s video coordinator and not an assistant coach. Matta deemed Paulus’ performance to “exceed expectations” in four categories listed of Job Knowledge and Quality of Work, Communication and Teamwork, Personal Conduct and Management and Leadership. In three of those four sections, Matta noted that an area of focus for Paulus this year was to “assist in the transition of the video coordinator position and the responsibilities that will be given.” Jake Diebler was named Paulus’ replacement the day his promotion was announced. In all, it was clear each member on staff made their respective boss happy in their efforts to help the team reach the Elite Eight last season. The team’s overall GPA was 2.82, with four players — then-senior walk-on guard Alex Rogers, then-junior guard Aaron Craft, then-sophomore forward Sam Thompson and then-freshman guard Amedeo Della Valle — being named Scholar Athletes for finishing the year with a GPA of 3.7 or above. The No. 22 Buckeyes (22-6, 9-6) are set to travel to Penn State Thursday to take on the Nittany Lions (13-14, 4-10) at 7 p.m. Penn State defeated OSU, 71-70, in overtime Jan. 29 in Columbus.

Onnen said she agrees with that philosophy. “Having a tax break such that the state tax rate are at 5 percent is a great idea for Ohio businesses and investments,” she said. “The lower taxes are, the more money is in the pockets of Ohioans to reinvest in the economy. I think Gov. Kasich reestablished his commitment to ensuring the growth of Ohio’s economy in the future.” Hayden, though, said the plan could cause problems. “Reducing tax revenue, no matter where you slice it, ends up being a problematic thing in the long run,” Hayden said. “The problem is the money has to come from somewhere.” Kasich also announced plans for continuing education, including a system to help people who don’t have high school diplomas earn their diplomas at two-year colleges. Kasich is running for re-election this fall, but he said he hopes that doesn’t get in the way of getting his announced initiatives. “Please don’t let the fact that we’re in an election year make us weak (or) too partisan,” Kasich said. “The nation and the world, they have their eyes on Ohio.”

It is never a good feeling to check the headlines and see that a popular celebrity has passed away, but few have made me feel as legitimately sad as those reporting Harold Ramis’ death Monday. Ramis died of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a disease that causes blood vessels to swell, at the age of 69. Comedy films have always been a huge part of my life, and nobody has ever brought the quantity and quality of work Ramis did during his career as an actor, writer, director or producer. During this academic year alone, my roommates and I have watched “Caddyshack,” “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” “Animal House,” “Stripes” and “Ghostbusters.” These are all movies Ramis helped create, along with others including “Groundhog Day” and “Ghostbusters II,” that I have loved for many years and have seen many times. As far as comedies go, those movies mentioned above are among the cream of the crop. Each one had a huge influence from Ramis, no matter what his contributions were. For evidence of Ramis’ instinct for comedy, look no further than the free range for improvisation that he allowed his longtime collaborator Bill Murray in Ramis’ directorial debut, “Caddyshack.” It has been said that nearly all of Murray’s lines as Carl Spackler were ad-libbed in the film, leading to some of the funniest and most memorable lines. This successful move led to director Ivan Reitman allowing Murray the same freedom in “Ghostbusters,” with equally successful results. Ramis’ acting was also noteworthy. Though never the star actor, his dry comedy was a great complement to Murray in “Stripes” and to Murray and Dan Aykroyd in “Ghostbusters.” It is pretty much impossible to imagine “Ghostbusters” without the smart aleck remarks of Ramis’ character Egon Spengler. When I look at my favorite eras of comedy, the 1980s probably stand at the top. So many of those hilarious films were made possible by the genius of Ramis, and I am really sad to see him go. I think everyone, both those in the film industry and those who just enjoy it like me, would agree the world has lost one of its funniest, most talented entertainers. Courtesy of MCT

Writer, film director and actor Harold Ramis died Feb. 24 from autoimmune inflamatory vasculitis.


When six high school sousaphone players fell down on top of each other during a halftime show in Texas, video footage of the pileup went viral. The collision happened in September, but ABC’s “Good Morning America” invited Ohio State’s Marching Band director, Jon Waters, to help the Lake Travis High School marching band try again on national television Monday. “Good Morning America” paid for Waters and two student band members, Ryan Barta and Zachary Naughton, to travel to the Austin, Texas, area to work with the band. The Lake Travis High School marching band performed a one-minute spot live on “Good Morning America” Monday. The routine featured the band creating the “Good Morning America” logo and the tuba section of the band “duplicating the move that resulted in the pileup,” Waters said. Waters, Naughton and Barta worked with the band Saturday and Sunday before its Monday appearance. “It’s been cool to help them out,” said Barta, a fourth-year in business and trumpet player. “You can tell they look up to (the OSU Marching Band).” Naughton and Barta brought along the iPads to help teach the high school band members in Texas. Recently, the OSU Marching Band appeared in an Apple iPad Air commercial, featured for its use of iPads to create a season of halftime shows that regularly received millions of views online. The Lake Travis band has received comparable attention for its mistake — but Waters said the band shouldn’t be discouraged. “It’s a very fine band we’re working with,” he said. Naughton, a fourth-year in electrical engineering and sousaphone player, said he was impressed by the band’s attitude. “They’re a bunch of good kids,” he said. “They’re eager to learn. There are no negative attitudes.” While travel and hotel expenses were covered for Waters, Barta and Naughton, they were not additionally compensated for their time in Texas, Waters said. Though it isn’t every day he’s contacted by “Good Morning America,” this

JACOB HOLLAR Lantern reporter Food trucks might have pervaded the mainstream in the past several years, but now the idea of a store-on-wheels has started to expand beyond the food service industry. Local menswear retailer Pursuit has taken an old potato chip delivery truck and turned it into a nearly $30,000 suit shop. Nate DeMars, owner of Pursuit and Fisher College of Business alumnus, said a suit shop on wheels can seem a bit crazy, but he believes it’s a sound business move. Pursuit’s only physical store, located in the South Campus Gateway, receives a “big chunk” of its business from college students, DeMars said, but that popularity with students doesn’t mean the store would be practical in any given college town. Columbus, DeMars said, can sustain year-round business for Pursuit because of its community of young professionals. But smaller college towns are often “ghost towns” for four months in the year and it’s hard to commit to a store that’s only going to see business two-thirds of the year, he said. The suit truck was a response to that.

“We wanted a concept to take the expertise we’re trying to build at Ohio State and take it to other campuses without having to invest in a brick-and-mortar (store) that’s not going to get (as much) business,” DeMars said. Pursuit’s chief creative officer Shay Merritté, also a Fisher alumnus, said the truck was a great solution, and “mobile retail is one of the trends of the future.” DeMars and Merritté said they considered opening pop-up stores that would visit different campuses for a few weeks or a month at a time before moving on, but something about a truck has always appealed to them. “We’ve had the idea of the truck since basically the beginning of the store and the business,” DeMars said.

Pursuit was founded in 2011 and DeMars, Merritté and the rest of the Pursuit team have been working on making the truck a reality since August 2013. “I scoured the Internet and Craigslist for a long, long time (for the right truck),” DeMars said. He finally found it — the “biggest step van (he) could find” — but there was some major remodeling to be done. The truck needed heat, air conditioning, lighting, storage, generators, dressing rooms and a vibrant paint job. DeMars said the truck cost around $7,500, but all the rest ran an additional $22,000. Almost seven months later, though, DeMars and Merritté said they are happy with the result. The “giant, weird, colorful truck” streamlines the suit-buying process in a way the Gateway store hasn’t managed to, Merritté said. The truck doesn’t and physically can’t offer as many options as Pursuit’s rented location at 1572 N. High St., but Merritté said creating a streamlined layout was simpler in the truck. “For just one guy coming in, the truck is a lot easier and makes more sense. Everything (in the truck) has its own place, and there’s not as much to communicate,” Merritté said. Merritté and DeMars said they have more liberty to set

[ a+e ] Relationships, rivalries revived in new season of ‘Vikings’ ELIZABETH TZAGOURNIS Lantern reporter Some Vikings are set to sail on a new season. The the History Channel’s show “Vikings” is back for a second season. “Vikings” debuted last March with 6.2 million viewers and held an average 4.3 million viewers over the course of its 9-episode first season, according to TV by the Numbers. The show is the first original scripted drama series for the History Channel and follows the journey of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, who is based on a real-life Viking and is played by Travis Fimmel, and his family, friends and fellow tribe members. Rollo, played by Clive Standen, is the younger brother of Ragnar and in a constant state of rivalry with his older sibling. “That brotherly rivalry is always there and it’s always prominent throughout life,” Standen said in a phone interview with college media. “(Rollo) feels like he’s living in his brother’s shadow.” Additionally, Rollo covets his brother’s wife, Lagertha, played by Katheryn Winnick. Lagertha and Ragnar were a formidable pair throughout the first season, but by the end of season one, Ragnar had slept with Princess Aslaug, a woman whom he encountered during his travels. Lagertha must decide whether she can deal with the enormity of Ragnar’s affair and its possible repercussions in season 2. “If you’ve seen some of the trailers, she definitely feels humiliated and feels like she has no choice (but) to leave at some point just to save her pride,” Winnick said. Battle scenes in “Vikings” can often get very violent and realistic with some of the actors performing their own stunts. “You see the whites of the eyes, the fear, the danger. Because when you’re in the middle of a take, sometimes what you rehearsed in the comfort of the studio on your feet, you’ll suddenly end up in the mud crawling around on your feet (and) pulling the guy next to you on the floor,” Standen said. “I (end) up with cuts and bruises all over me but you just don’t feel it when you’re filming … the adrenaline just keeps you going.” Winnick said she also enjoys the rare opportunity the show provides to her and her fellow castmates in portraying historical figures. “You don’t really see that often a character that’s portrayed that’s actually existed,” Winnick said.


Jared Tardiff, a first-year in public affairs, a selfdubbed “history freak” and a fan of many of the programs on the History Channel, said he finds “Vikings” to be the perfect combination of fun and excitement within a historical context. “I really enjoyed the first season. The characters have a lot of depth and are realistic despite the show being about people hundreds of years ago,” Tardiff said in an email. “I think it is extremely accurate and believable. There was a whole episode devoted to Vikings’ religion and rituals, which was very well done (and) captivating but educational.” Standen is also “mad about history” and said “Vikings” was the project he had been waiting for. “As much as I enjoyed doing those (other) shows they were just a warmup for the main event,” he said. “It’s historical drama but it really encapsulates a younger genre.” Standen has also played roles in the TV series “Robin Hood” and “Doctor Who,” among others. As season 2 begins, fans are ready to have questions and cliffhangers from the season one finale answered. “Everybody has their own journey (and) Lagertha definitely has a big journey,” Winnick said. “I would say Lagertha comes into her own in season two. When you think she hits a low, she hits an even lower floor.” The honest depiction of the Viking tribe is what Standen said the show aims to accomplish. “That’s what we want you to believe,” Standen said. “We want you to think that these characters honestly perished, that they’re real people in hard circumstances in a world.” The actors and actresses work to maintain this relatable side of their characters, Standen said. “It’s about the humanity of characters,” Standen said. “The actor’s job is to get to the bare bones of what motivates these characters for acting the way they do. “Vikings” is set to return to the History Channel Thursday at 10 p.m. The new season is set to introduce new cast members Alex Ludwig (“The Hunger Games”) as Ragnar and Lagertha’s son, Bjorn, and Linus Roache (“Law & Order”) as King Ecbert.

Guide to College Fashion

Clear your mind, smile, don’t strive for perfection to sport self-acceptance BREANNA SOROKA For The Lantern In honor of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, this installment of the fashion column is going to be a little different. Body image is such a huge part of the fashion industry — too big of a part, in my opinion. Every day, women are throttled with images of thinny-thin girls, most of whom are prepubescent, and they have it engrained in their brains that they need to look exactly the same if they want any part of society to recognize them as being human. We are taught that perfection means disappearing, and that the smaller you are, the more people will love you. As a lady who has struggled with disordered eating for the past seven years, I’m finally learning to love my body — not just for how it looks, but for what it can do to keep me alive. So instead of tips to stay on top of the trends this week, I want to share with you my mini-guide for learning to appreciate everything your body is and does. Because with that self-love comes a sense of confidence, which is something more stylish and timeless than any other tip I can give you. Clear your mind Find something to do that makes you feel your absolute best while you’re doing it. If yoga is your thing, do it for 10 minutes every

morning to feel good for the rest of the day. If you love running, lace up your shoes and head outside for an instant pick-me-up. If you have a creative streak, do your thing, whether it’s composing, drawing or waxing poetic. The most important thing is to find something that you want to do because it makes you feel great — you won’t love yourself any more if you force yourself to run every day when it’s the bane of your existence or if yoga makes you fall asleep every time you try it. Personal meditation methods are different for everyone. Use daily mantras Yes, they are as cheesy as it gets, but the things you say to yourself have more impact than anything anyone else could say, so you need to make sure you’re speaking and thinking as positively as you can. This doesn’t have to be some New Age, mystical mumbojumbo you don’t even understand — it should be what you love about yourself in the simplest of terms, said in a way that makes the most impact on the rest of your day. Tell yourself you love that you can make people laugh. Let yourself know that you’re grateful your legs can carry you throughout the entire day. Make it a point to compliment each and every single freckle on your face. Change it up every day, and start giving yourself the love you deserve. Don’t strive for perfection Those pictures you drool over in magazines are not real and never will be. The Photoshop techniques used to produce those inhuman

OSU alumna to reveal ‘The 7 Life Miracles’ in book KHALID MOALIM Lantern reporter “Conquer any goal and overcome any obstacle to unlock your dream life,” is the theme of Ohio State alumna Julie Wilkes’ upcoming book, “The 7 Life Miracles.” At an early age, Wilkes was diagnosed with a terminal heart disease and wasn’t expected to live past age 12. Wilkes feared doing physical activity as a result of her health problems in her youth, until her fifth grade gym teacher taught her “fitness could heal your heart,” Wilkes said. From that point onward, her mantra has been “Carpe Diem, to seize the day.” As Wilkes got older, in her 20s, she realized she had a rare second opportunity at life. “When I was 25, I ran my first marathon. It was when I crossed that finish line I realized that my heart has been healed, because I don’t think I would have been able to run that marathon with an unhealthy heart, so I realized at that time I was given a second chance at life,” Wilkes said. Wilkes’ studio, Seven Studios, located at 275 S. Third St. in downtown Columbus, aims to helps clients find their “7 Life Miracles” — which are obstacles Wilkes said she believes everyone needs to overcome to live a full happy life — through yoga, Pilates, boot camp and motivational retreats. Wilkes emphasizes her belief of “The 7 Life Miracles,” also the title of her new book set to be released Tuesday, in her motivational lectures and life coaching sessions that she offers in person, over Skype or over the phone. The seven “life miracles” — embrace, connect, create, empower, choose, climb and inspire — are all intended to help clients find awareness in these areas to live with purpose.

creatures we call people are digital poison destroying any idea of reality we have. Everyone has pores; everyone has bad hair days. If you have to take a hiatus from looking at any media in general, do that — it’s important to recognize that these people represent an unachievable ideal. Your imperfections are what MAKE you perfect and what make you, you. Learn to love them and you will be on the way to a much happier place. Smile You will still have bad days, and you will still sometimes feel like everything about yourself is wrong — we’re only human and are bound to fall back down sooner or later. It’s important to keep a smile even when this happens, no matter how hard it may be, and fight to get back up. Smile because you know you’re on your way to body peace, even if there are a few bumps in the road. Smile because it makes others smile with you. Smile because you look fabulous. The journey to absolute love for yourself is long and one you’ll probably be on for the rest of your life. But each and every time you have a triumph against that little voice in your head telling you that you need to shrink and that you’re not good enough, you’ll get stronger. And remember — the strongest, happiest people are so much more stylish than anyone else. Wear what you want, and love who you are.

TBDBITL from 4A isn’t the first high school band Waters has helped. Waters regularly works with local marching and concert bands when he’s not busy working with OSU, he said. The Lake Travis band “really embraced” the pileup and saw the humor in it, Barta said. The tuba players involved made T-shirts with a picture of the pileup on them, he said. “In the marching band world, this is a really scary reality,” Naughton said. “It only

OSU alumna Julie Wilkes is set to release her book, ‘The 7 Life Miracles,’ Feb. 25. During one of Wilkes’ motivational lectures in her mid-20s, a client suggested that she write a book. “I started to find out when I talked about overcoming obstacles there were seven things that always came up in my lectures, and one day someone had said to me, ‘You should write a book we could take with us,’ so I set to write the book about the seven things I believe will help anyone come over any obstacle to live their best life,” Wilkes said.

A crowd of about 75 people gathered to celebrate the truck’s launch, DeMars said, and the first suit was sold from the truck that night. The truck also made appearances outside the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion on Neil Avenue and in Columbus’ Brewery District over the weekend. It has

Becca Anderson, a third-year in English, said she thought the truck “shows ingenuity.” “Accessibility is super important,” she said. “With food trucks and clothes trucks, stores are not limited to one spot. They can deliver to their customers, offering a one-up on competitors,” Anderson said.

Eran Hami Senior Lantern reporter Senior year of high school: staring out at the volleyball court and eating popsicles, Dustan Neary and Michael Henchy sat with their backs against the bleachers after defeating a high school rival for their first time in 10 years. “That was a pretty cool moment and I think it says something about our friendship off the court,” Henchy said of the time with Neary after the win. Now both juniors on the Ohio State men’s volleyball team, Neary and Henchy were previously high school volleyball teammates at Ventura High School in Ventura, Calif. The pair officially became teammates their sophomore year of high school when they both made the varsity team. Henchy said slowly but surely, he and Neary became good friends. “We didn’t really know each other freshmen and sophomore years. Our junior year we started to hang out a little bit and our senior year he started hanging out with me and my friend group a lot,” Henchy said. “It was more of an every weekend than an occasional kind of thing. Just spent a lot of time hanging out together … we could play pretty much any sport together.” Even though the two are good friends, they agreed they get a little competitive at practice, both in high school and today at OSU, where Neary is a middle blocker and Henchy is an outside hitter. “During high school our coach would have to split us up and put us on separate teams, it was always a battle,” Neary said with a laugh. “We would talk trash through the net all the time. But at the end of practice, we knew we were friends.” After high school, different recruiting processes led them to opposite ends of the country. Neary attended Moorpark Community College in California for two years before coming to OSU. Although Neary started playing volleyball in the fourth grade, he said he had more of a passion for basketball and that hurt him during recruitment. “I played basketball through high school and volleyball was kind of just something I did when I wasn’t playing basketball,” Neary said. “I didn’t start taking volleyball seriously until my junior year of high school … Everybody else had started (playing) earlier and I think

they got noticed earlier, I was late getting into it. My talent was more raw, I guess.” Neary added he transferred to OSU so he could continue his volleyball career. Ventura High School boys volleyball coach Kim Adair said in a phone interview she loved Neary’s laughter on the court. “When he’d make a block or a kill, he would just turn around and have this grin on his face and then he’d get into the huddle and just laugh, just get joy from what he did,” Adair said.

Junior outside hitter Michael Henchy (6) hits the ball while junior middle blocker Dustan Neary (18) watches during a match against Saint Francis Feb. 9 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-1.

Adair said she enjoyed watching him develop a passion for the game. OSU men’s volleyball coach Pete Hanson said Henchy’s level-mindedness makes him a great asset on the court. “Michael brings a real level of steadiness, maturity … I think because we’re a pretty young group right now, that’s important for us,” Hanson said. “He keeps everybody pretty focused on the next play, regardless of what might have happened on the previous play.” Henchy said his decision to come to OSU was an easy one. “I took my official visit to Ohio State, went to a football game and got to meet the guys on the team and it was just a no-brainer from there,” Henchy said. Neary said after deciding to transfer, OSU was always an option because he had a good friend there. “In the recruiting process, I (sought) them (OSU) out first and out of the schools I showed myself to, Ohio State showed the biggest response,” Neary said. “Having my friend here made a difference.” Hanson said Neary’s work ethic was what made him appealing. “When we watched him at a junior college tournament, his team was playing in like eight or nine games in a couple hours and he seemed to play all the games,” Hanson said. “He kind of just kept going, and going, and going … and that is what kind of caught our eye — this guy just works hard all the time.” Henchy said he was excited to hear Neary was considering transferring to OSU to play. “When I found out he (Neary) was thinking of coming here, the wheels started to spin and I started putting in some good words with the coaches. I started telling him more about the campus,” Henchy said. In those two years, the two players kept in touch by emails and texts every now and then, and got to hang out on breaks from school. “After not seeing him that much for two years, I came here and it was pretty much exactly the same, exactly where we started off,” Neary said. On the OSU men’s volleyball team (7-6, 4-2), the two players have worked to become starters. “It’s funny lining up next to him in the front row and looking over and seeing the same thing the entire way through high school,” Neary said.

Redshirt-junior guard Amy Scullion (right) looks for an open teammate during a game against Penn State Feb. 9 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 74-54.

Ohio State women’s basketball redshirt-junior guard Amy Scullion is calling an end to her career on the court after the conclusion of the season. Scullion, who has started all but one game thus far this season, joined seniors centers Ashley Adams and Darryce Moore, forward Martina Ellerbe and redshirtsenior center Aleksandra Dobranic in the pregame Senior Day honors before taking the floor at the Schottenstein Center one final time in a win over Northwestern Sunday. Although she redshirted her first year in Columbus because of a torn ACL and thus has one remaining year of eligibility, Scullion made the decision to end her basketball career in order to attend medical school. “It was obviously a really tough decision,” Scullion said Feb. 18. “I think for my career and my goals, the best thing right now is for me to hang up my basketball shoes.” The decision was made after a conversation with her parents and with coach Kevin McGuff, who said he supports Scullion’s decision. “Obviously she is an extremely bright young

woman with an amazing future ahead,” McGuff said Sunday. “I think it is a great decision. She will be very successful.” Scullion was recruited and signed by former OSU coach Jim Foster, who was fired after the 2012-13 season “without cause,” but Scullion had all positive things to say about McGuff and his current staff. “I really enjoy playing for coach McGuff and I think he is moving the program in a great direction,” Scullion said. “It is hard to not be a part of that (moving forward).” In her final home game, Scullion pulled down eight rebounds, and dished out a career-high three assists to go along with two points as the Buckeyes defeated the Wildcats, 71-62. Scullion is currently in the process of applying to medical schools and said that if she is accepted, she would like to stay at OSU. “I am still trying to get in here (OSU),” Scullion said. “Obviously I would love to stay here.” Scullion said she is also looking into the University of Colorado and Wake Forest University for medical school. Scullion and the Buckeyes are set to conclude their regular season with road games against Iowa Thursday and Minnesota Sunday before traveling to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Tournament.


New collision rule appropriate move for MLB Ryan Cooper Lantern reporter A new rule adopted by Major League Baseball Monday is set to alter one of the only contact plays in baseball — the home plate collision. The adjustment of this old-school play will surely lead to a great deal of objection from fans and former players from a more gritty era, but it has to be considered the appropriate move from MLB commissioner Bud Selig and the MLB Players Association. The experimental rule states that a runner who uses his shoulders, hands, elbows or arms to push through the catcher without any effort to touch the plate will be automatically ruled out, even if the catcher drops the ball. On the flip side, if the catcher attempts to block the plate without possession of the ball, the runner will be called safe even if he doesn’t touch home. A collision at the plate is as exciting as anything in a sport that many people have classified as “boring.” However, it doesn’t seem to have any place left in a time when the safety of players — especially when it comes to head injuries and concussions — is the No. 1 priority. In a sport where players usually don’t

Seattle won, 5-3. have to worry about being targeted physically by a member of the opposition, catchers — who already the most physically demanding position — are put at an unfair risk. Off the top of my head, I can think of several gruesome injuries to a catcher from a home plate collision. Former Miami Marlins center fielder

Scott Cousins broke San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey’s leg in 2011, and former Los Angeles Angels catcher Bobby Wilson sustained a concussion and left ankle sprain in 2010 from a collision with New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira. Arguably the most infamous collision came in 1970 when the Indians’

Ray Fosse’s career was derailed by a separated shoulder from a violent collision courtesy of former-Cincinnati Reds third baseman Pete Rose — in the All-Star Game, no less. The justification for physical contact with the catcher has always been the fact that catchers wear protective gear not found on position players, but it is clear this is not enough. The flaw with the new rule is it says a catcher would be allowed to block the plate if the umpire determines he needed to do that in order to field the ball and contact could not be avoided. This turns the ruling into an umpire’s judgment call, which will inevitably lead to a controversial situation somewhere down the line. The MLB said video replay would be allowed to determine the correct call in a situation like that, but that could just lead to more confusion and outrage. Still, this rule was a long time coming and had to be done. Of course, as a baseball fan, I will miss the heart-pounding action of a base runner barreling into a catcher who is squeezing the ball with all of his might. But I would rather miss out on that action than see another catcher’s season end because of a violent play, because that is not what baseball, or any sport, is about.
