For some of Ohio State’s Muslim students, Osama bin Laden was more than a terrorist. The leader of al-Qaida was also a thief, who stole their religion’s identity. Since September 2001, Muslims around the country have struggled with the misperceptions of Islam propagated by a small, but highly visible group of radicals that the Saudi-born bin Laden led. But a week after his death, Muslim students at OSU said they are hopeful that his demise will bring about a new era for Islam. “What really drew me to Islam was 9/11,” said Meredith Spano, a second-year in Arabic and Middle Eastern studies. Spano converted to Islam only a year ago, but said the events of nearly a decade ago sparked her interest in the faith. “It left me wondering, what is this thing that drove people to commit such horrible acts?” Spano said. “But I came to learn it’s so much more than that.” Spano said it was after years of learning about Islam through her own research and talking with Muslims that she finally decided to convert. Spano was raised by Catholic parents and grew up in that church. “It was hard in the beginning,” Spano said of her conversion. “But it’s gotten easier with time. I mean,

I think that Muslim-Americans are immensely glad just like other Americans, not just because of the fear of terror, but also the symbol he represents. We finally have freedom from the boogie man that we’ve feared for the last decade. Shammas Malik second-year Muslim student in political science and international studies

we live in a world where you can be whatever you want, ideally.” The 9/11 attacks brought a great deal of attention to Islam, particularly from non-Muslims like Spano. Unlike Spano, however, many people made assumptions about the faith and reacted violently toward the religion. “I knew some people who were shot at,” said Shammas Malik, a second-year Muslim student studying political science and international studies. Malik said he has never personally been assaulted or discriminated against, but he knew growing up that his faith was not universally respected.

“I think people think of Muslims as these stereotypical, hard-line fanatics,” Malik said. “I mean, Islam is so diverse. This one man does not represent us.” Malik said the death of bin Laden is made even more meaningful for Muslims because of his distortion of their faith. “I think that Muslims more than anyone feel the impact of this,” Malik said. “Because they know what it is like to have their religion hijacked by a mad man.” Despite the negative impact bin Laden had on Islam, Maria Ahmad, a fourth-year in political science and president of the Muslim Student’s association, said she is unhappy with the way the U.S. chose to dispose of his body. “As an American I’m really happy that there is one less terrorist in the world,” Ahmad said. “But he claimed to be Muslim and he should have had the Muslim ritual burial.” The U.S. government said it made an effort to care for bin Laden’s body in accordance with Muslim tradition, but many believe the disposal of his body at sea was not the appropriate choice. Malik, Spano and Ahmad agreed that this was not the traditional burial. “Maybe it was just a miscommunication,” Spano said. “But I hope that they tried to make the effort.” Spano was happy with the president’s decision not to release photos of bin Laden’s corpse,

As new voting legislation moves through the Ohio government, many students might not realize that the voting requirements could become more stringent. Many students living in the university district move locations from year to year, and some do not realize that this could effect when, where and how they vote. “Students are transient. This is a big issue,” said Jacob Foskuhl, associate director of OSU Votes and a third-year in public affairs and Russian. Foskuhl said one of the biggest issues is getting students to understand that they have to re-register. “Some people may think they are already registered because they filled out a registration in 2008 in the dorms, but they may have since moved,” Foskuhl said. “We need them to realize that in order for them (to) vote at the polls, they need to register at their current address.” Petitions are being circulated for Senate Bill 5, which Gov. John Kasich signed at the end of March, limiting the collective bargaining rights of about 360,000 public employees. The petitions have until June 30 to collect about 231,150 signatures. For students’ signatures to be counted in the SB5 petition, they must be registered at the address that they mark on the petition. Joey Longley, the campus region leader for SB5 petition-gathering and a second-year in economics and political science, said volunteers will be working closely with OSU Votes to educate students on how to get registered. “We really want to focus on getting this issue

Students take advantage of online monastery

Want to get married? There are at least 150 students ordained on campus through the Universal Life Church Monastery who could perform the ceremony. The Universal Life Church Monastery is a non-profit organization that provides a free online ordination service. Nationwide, the ULC has ordained about 500,000 people since the mid-2000s and ordained about 4,000 people last week alone, said Andy Fulton, a ULC intern working in public relations and marketing. Anyone over the age of 18 can be ordained, Fulton said. To Tony Boris, a second-year in international studies and security intelligence, getting his ordination began as a joke. “My roommate and I were sitting and joking about things and decided to do it,” said Boris, who received his online ordination in the middle of Winter Quarter. Boris said he and his roommate thought it would be funny if one of them married someone to someone else. Boris said he is a religious person. “If I feel like something bad is going to happen, I do pray. I am praying about retaliations on the U.S. now,” Boris said. He said he attends a Byzantine Catholic church at home. “They (the church) would probably find it a little offensive,” Boris said. “They may get used to it.” He said the Catholic Church wants you to go through the seminary to be ordained. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus was not available for comment. “I don’t think they’d be mad, at least not my priest because we’re close,” Boris

According to its website, those who become ordained through the Universal Life Church Monastery can perform weddings, baptisms, funerals and even exorcisms, regardless of religious or spiritual denomination. Becoming ordained through ULC does not religiously bind a person, but gives them the legal status to perform the aforementioned ceremonies.

campus Plant sale raises money, helps programs keep growing Alex Nelso n Lantern reporter Columbus might have smelled a little sweeter last weekend, as the aroma of more than 650 varieties of herbs, perennials and annuals, vegetables and other plants wafted through the air at the 2011 Spring Plant Sale, Auction and Gardening Fair at Ohio State. The OSU Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens hosted the annual three-day event that raised money for the arboretum, student groups associated with horticulture and other third-party vendors. “It’s our main fundraiser,” said Sue Downey, volunteer chairperson for the Chadwick Arboretum. She said the money raised goes toward the main operating costs of the arboretum, which the university does not fund. “It’s a huge event for us, with a huge need to have success.” Downey said last year’s event raised more than $40,000. The profit for the student groups and programs and third-party vendors varied, with a percentage going to the arboretum. She said at this year’s sale, more than 11,000 plants were bar coded for sale, the majority of which were bought from local wholesalers. Downey said area nurseries donated the 300 auctioned items. Downey said the plant show has been held for about 15 years, and she has been involved for 10 years. It is usually the weekend before Mother’s Day. OSU’s Crops and Soils Club is no newcomer to the event. Jay Witkop, a third-year in crop science, said he has worked the plant sale for the last three years with the club selling peppers and tomatoes. “We use our money to fund the soil and weed science judging teams,” Witkop said. Witkop said in about 24 hours, the club usually sells out of the about 1,500 peppers and 2,500 tomatoes that it grows and makes about $2,000 a year at the sale.

Patrick Sherwood, a second-year graduate student in plant pathology, said the Plant Pathology Graduate Student Association has been involved with the event for about 10 years. “We sell Ohio native wildflowers. We try to keep everything native to Ohio,” Sherwood said. Sherwood said the profits go to the plant pathology graduate student program to help cover research travel costs. “We raise anywhere from $3,000-$4,000,” he said. Anna Conrad, a first-year graduate student in plant pathology, said the plants started growing in the end of January and had required weekly maintenance since. “It’s nice to see the product of your hard work pay off,” Conrad said. Myranda Porada, a third-year in social work, said she saw the signs for the plant sale while driving by and decided to stop with her roommate. “We have a flower bed by the house. We wanted to plant some spring flowers and make it pretty,” Porada said. Downey said the unsold plants are usually either sold discounted to the volunteers or donated to outside organizations like Habitat for Humanity. She said last year many of the plants were used to help build a garden in inner-city Columbus. The plant sale began on Thursday, with a members-only event for the Friends of Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens. The membersonly event featured live music, food and the first pick of plants from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday were free and open to the public, running from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., respectively. Auctions were held each day, with about 100 items available for purchase.

Online ordination is legal matter rather than religious one said. “He might be annoyed and not take it as the joke I meant it to be.” Boris said he sometimes regrets his decision to become ordained as a joke. “I think there should be a process. I don’t think people should do it as a joke like I did,” Boris said. “I don’t really feel right in the back of my mind.” Jim Fitz, a fourth-year in environmental science, said getting ordained was something cool to do. He received his ordination in December 2009 and said he had almost forgotten about his minister status. “It’s kind of silly that not everyone can perform weddings, officiate funerals. I think everyone should be able to,” Fitz said. Although Fitz became ordained on a whim, others said they chose to go through the process with a specific wedding in mind. Chris Costic, who graduated from Ohio State in spring 2009, took advantage of the free ordination service for his cousin’s wedding. “My cousin and his fiancé wanted someone that they knew. I was the first person they thought of,” Costic said. He was 24 when he performed the wedding ceremony.

“I’m not really much of a spiritual person,” Costic said. But Fulton said the ordination is a legal matter and not a religious one. “Religion plays no impact whatsoever,” Fulton said. “It’s ridiculously informal, but it’s legally binding.” According to, the ordination is not religiously binding, as people of any faith can be ordained. It does give those who are ordained the legal status to preform ceremonies such as weddings, baptisms, funerals and even exorcisms. Although Costic did not perform a religious ceremony, he said, “You never really think about the minister’s perspective.” He said it was a unique experience to perform his cousin’s wedding and control the happiest day of their lives. Fulton said one thing he likes about his job is hearing the stories. He said even though the ordination process is only legally binding and has no religious merit, it gives some people the ability to get married that might not have had the chance. A young Indian couple from southern California was wondering if they could have their old Indian pastor from India come to the U.S. and get ordained to perform the wedding, Fulton said. “I can’t think of any other way that would be possible,” he said.

HB 159 could impact student voting on the ballot, as it affects every single Ohioan. Part of this is making sure the petition is being signed correctly,” Longley said. Petitioners will be circulating voter registration forms during the petitioning process and those forms will be passed to the Board of Elections before the signatures are counted, said Greg Schultz, chairman of the Franklin County Democratic Party. Another issue for studentvoters to consider before November is how House Bill 159 could affect their voting. HB 159 is the voter ID bill, which, if passed in the Senate and signed by Kasich, would require all voters to present at the polls one of four valid photo IDs: military ID, U.S. passport, Ohio state ID, or Ohio driver’s license. State-issued university IDs would not be an acceptable form of identification. Present law allows for voters to cast ballots if they simply show proof of address, such as a utility bill, bank statement or worker pay stub. “The example I always remember is in the 2008

presidential election, a student brought the cardboard top of his mother’s care package she had sent him to the dorms because it had his current address on it, and this worked,” said Rep. Michael Stinziano, D-Columbus, former director of the Franklin County Board of Elections and current representative of Ohio’s 25th House District, which includes areas near campus and the Short North. Stinziano said he believes that if HB 159 passes, there will likely be an increase in provisional voting. The bill was passed by the full House on March 23 and is now making its way through the Ohio Senate. Provisional ballots are issued to people who do not present correct forms of ID or whose voting eligibility is in question. These ballots might not be counted for days after an election. “There is a high provisional voting for students on campus already,” Stinziano said. “I think it’s everyone’s preference to not have any hurdles and know that their vote is being counted just like everyone else’s. With HB 159, they will be voting even more provisionally.” Foskhul said this would be extremely difficult. “The current address part of voter registration is already tricky enough and requiring a valid photo ID will be even

decision. In the end it would fuel the feelings of the opposition.” With or without the photos, Muslim students around campus agree the death of bin Laden comes as a relief. “I think that Muslim-Americans are immensely glad just like other Americans,” Malik said. “Not just because of the fear of terror, but also the symbol he represents. We finally have freedom from the boogie man that we’ve feared for the last decade.”

Preparation for changes at the polls Pending passage of House Bill 159, the voter ID bill, changes will be made at the polls which may affect voting college students. What this means for in-state students: Acceptable forms of identification at the polls: - Military ID - U.S. passport - Ohio state ID - Ohio driver’s license State-issued university IDs or any other proof of address (bank statement, pay stub or utility bill) will no longer be accepted. Those who do not present valid identification at the polls will have to complete a provisional ballot to vote. Source: reporting

harder,” Foskhul said. “Students don’t get IDs every four to six months when they move.” Others disagree about the likelihood of HB 159 affecting the way students vote. “Last time I checked, college kids were mobile, competent and capable of getting themselves to the DMV and getting identification,” said Rep. Robert Mecklenborg, R-Cincinnati, who introduced HB 159 in March. “When I was at the board of elections, we took into consideration that a lot of college and university students are a little unique when it comes to factors that impact their voting, like address,” Stinziano said. Former Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, Democrat, worked with the university to help educate students on voting and voter rights, Stinziano said. “One of the initiatives we did was work with OSU housing during freshman move-in last year. We made sure there was a voter registration on every desk, voter information from the secretary of state and information about the Voter’s Rights Institute,” Foskuhl said. Although there has been a change in secretary of state and current Secretary Jon Husted, Republican, has only been in office for just more than 100

days, steps are being taken to reach student-voter audiences, said Maggie Ostrowski, communications director to Husted. “The secretary of state wants to introduce an election reform bill that would allow individuals to register to vote and to submit address changes online. This is more of a convenience for people who use the Internet and easier than having to mail in a registration,” Ostrowski said. Other initiatives include using social media to keep students and young voters updated on voting procedures and important deadlines. “We are trying to think about where young people go to get information,” Ostrowski said. “We have a Facebook, a Twitter and a YouTube now; this is about educating young people.”

student voice Dear Brad: Is ‘senioritis’ a widespread epidemic?

Dear Concerned Student: You are likely suffering from what is known in medical circles as “senioritis.” Do not be alarmed: it is a condition that affects many high school and college students. Symptoms, as you stated, include procrastination, laziness and a general disregard for schoolwork. Students who used to review a research paper with a fine-toothed comb will suddenly finish it a halfhour before it is due, quickly spell-check the paper and say, “Good ‘nuff.”

Hours of intense studying are replaced with hours of watching YouTube clips with notes on your lap. Senioritis often strikes toward the end of a student’s academic career. However, when detected early, it has also been seen in freshmen and sophomores. Students afflicted at such a young age often change their majors to binge drinking or weed smoking, skills they fine-tune throughout much of their adult lives. BRAD MILLER Overcoming the disease is never easy, but there are ways to minimize its effects. For example, it can be difficult to force yourself to be productive once again. Therefore, I suggest you try bringing down the productivity of the people around you. Bringing others down to your level can actually make yourself look better. This strategy might not get

LANTERN Columnist

Dear Brad, I have always been a good student. I study hard for exams and turn in my assignments on time. I even attend Friday classes. But as I approach the end of my college career, these tasks are becoming increasingly difficult. I am finding more excuses to sleep in, skip class and procrastinate. All in all, I do not have the same level of motivation for schoolwork as I once did. As stated before, this has never been my tendency. Brad, can you explain to me what is causing these changes and give me some advice on how I can resolve them? -Concerned Student

you through life, but it should at least get you through the remainder of college. Another tool for combating senioritis is to diminish its effects before they have a chance to do real damage. Try to have your toughest classes out of the way before entering your final quarter. The final 10 weeks is not the time to be stuck taking Atom-Splitting 710. One should load up the schedule with the likes of Wine Tasting, Barrel Rolling and Hopscotch. Classes such as these do not punish laziness, but can still be intellectually challenging, especially if attended while hungover. Finally, it is important not to let senioritis destroy your self-esteem. There might be times when it feels like you are the lousiest student at the university, but odds are there is at least one person who is worse. Take a deep breath and scan campus for someone who you think might be a worse student than you. Finding such a student should make you feel better about your condition. For your own well-being, do not inform this individual of the distinction you have just awarded him or her. In many ways, senioritis can make for an enjoyable final year of college. But amid all the fun, it is important that you buckle down at least enough to get a passing grade. Otherwise, your condition may get exceedingly worse and progress into the next stage: fifth-year senioritis.

Lend a hand to those tortured by tornadoes LANTERN Columnist

The sky turns pink, the thunder claps, the wind picks up, sirens sound: a tornado is coming, what do you reach for? This was the question that the students at the University of Alabama were faced with when a tornado hit Tuscaloosa on April 27. Many did not have basements and were left to hold on for dear life to the foundations of their homes, homes that I would guess are not much different than the ones we reside in here at OSU; EMILY TARA run-down, old and possibly not with the strongest foundations. Imagine being with a boyfriend, girlfriend, friend or other loved one. Imagine them being torn from your grasp. I’ve heard this tragic story of loved ones being found days later, dead. While this is not a pleasant or happy picture, this is the reality for some Alabama students. These people are just like us, with exams and tests, and a million other things to do. Now they have insurance claims, clean-ups and possibly funerals added to their plate as well. There are some groups of students doing what they can to organize trips to help with the clean-up of the campus and the surrounding areas. Being a busy college student myself, I realize this is not possible for nearly everyone to do. So what can we do? I think the best thing is to not take for granted of what we have. I may be biased, but I believe that Ohio State is a unique community: a strong thread of Buckeyes that loop not only Columbus but the globe. I will never forget being in London and seeing a complete stranger wearing an Ohio State shirt and shouting O-H in front of Buckingham Palace and sure enough getting an I-O in response. So Bucks, with that, I challenge you to be thankful each day that you have mismatching socks in your drawer or a pen on your desk to take a test. Or even bigger, to be thankful that you still have a place to sleep, even if that place includes a loud roommate, a rat in your basement or a jammed front door. I challenge us all to think of those in Alabama and remember just how big the storm was. It was more than just a tornado: It was a lifechanging event for many, an event that could have even touched lives here on campus. Let’s extend the depth of our alma mater to those who need it the most and show how firm our friendship truly can be.

Ohio State athlete ‘perks’ are far from freebees Letter to the editor I came across an article in The Lantern (“Ohio State jocks get free socks,” April 28) and I would have to say the way you depicted the athletic program as giving basically “handouts” to athletes in the form of parking passes, fees and health insurance is simply wrong. I myself am a student-athlete and find your tone of the article to be demeaning. I understand the point of free speech, but I strongly suggest that you should reevaluate the issue of “free socks” from an additional perspective. Your use of the word “perk” as if the university is handing us athletes freebees is false. To play at any university for a Division I sport, it takes more than just playing on a high school team. The cost of the “free” scholarship can be countered by the cost of playing on a club team and training. Prior to college, the cost a family must pay to get a child into an elite college recruiting sport

environments. Additionally, they must maintain their athletic ability through multiple coaches, which is extremely expensive. My parents have spent more than $75,000 on my prep career of four years in club ball through traveling nationally, team fees, several coaches and trainers. I believe that your article lacks the understanding of how much I and the fellow athletes put into this university. To wear The Ohio State University across our chest when playing takes more than just an hour a day. Rather, typically six or more when you factor in study tables, practice, lifting, class and individual workouts. In no way are we above any other student on this campus. However, what we do on a daily basis as student-athletes should be heavily considered. We, without a doubt, earn these scholarships and are nowhere close to “free socks” because I honestly believe the majority of students here at

this university could not deal with the strain of our schedules and the demands we have as studentathletes. As far as the section in the article about being reimbursed for parking passes, I think you should look at the fact of where we spend the majority of our time besides class. Our practice fields and courts of St. John, Woody Hayes, and French Field House, etc., are required to have a C pass, an equivalent of a WC or WC5. Without these passes, we would be ticketed for every time we parked there for simply practicing. Maybe that is an issue for the university to have required parking passes for athletic fields, but nonetheless, we are required to have a pass. There are multiple walk-ons that are a part of this athletic program that work just as hard as us scholarship athletes. If getting a parking pass as a “perk”

allows them to come to practice and bring in income for the university then so be it. Free tutoring is beneficial, without a doubt, and the staff at SASSO are fantastic in helping athletes achieve their academic goals. Without them, we could not get the necessary information and help with our hectic schedule. It is essential that we get priority in scheduling because we would not be able to participate in our sports otherwise and go to class. SASSO is not babying us as athletes but rather guiding us and assisting when needed. I do not mean to diminish your argument; I just believe that you should see the perspective of another student-athlete. Thank you, Audrey Plant

No death deserves firecrackers, even Osama bin Laden’s


LANTERN Columnist

I think everyone’s world changed when it was announced May 1, that Osama bin Laden had been killed. There were celebrations: People all over the country crowded the streets, playing music and singing patriotic songs. Here in Columbus, people jumped in Mirror Lake, and on my street, people were honking horns, setting off firecrackers and blasting “Born in the USA.” Through all this celebration, I think that there are some important things that we all need to remember. First, we won a battle – not a war. Killing bin Laden was a huge victory for our war efforts in the Middle East, but it’s not the end. Far from it, actually. There’s a huge risk that his death will spark anti-American sentiment in many parts of the world. There have already been protests decrying his death in Pakistan. We will continue to have military presence in Afghanistan and Iraq for a very, very long time. Keep in mind that we beat Germany and Japan in WWII and still have a military presence in both of those countries (albeit we are not an occupying force).


In that same vein, bin Laden was far from the only person keeping al-Qaida afloat. That’s not really how al-Qaida works. It goes something like this: If a starting player of a basketball team twists his ankle in the middle of a game, they don’t stop playing. They sub in another guy. Sure, he may not be as good as the first, but he’ll get the job done. That’s how al-Qaida is. Bin Laden may have been the most famous face of the organization, but he’s far from the only guy who’s able to get things done. Finally, it’s important to

remember that bin Laden was not the only person to die the other night. This was not a clean kill, with bin Laden getting picked off by a sniper 500 feet away, with just a single bullet. This was a nasty, messy fight in an average suburb, and there were other casualties. Among the casualties was allegedly a woman, who was being used as a human shield. None of this is to say that bin Laden was a good guy. Even in death, he was risking and taking the lives of others. He has taken the lives of thousands, personally and through his plots, and he has forever changed the lives of millions more. My entire life, or at the very least those years when I was aware of politics, has been influenced by the terror this man wreaked. I can absolutely understand the way that some of my peers feel in celebrating his death. I, for one, am glad that this threat had been eliminated. But death is still death, and I simply cannot bring myself to shoot off firecrackers because someone is dead, especially since we still have a long road ahead of us.

Apartheid in the Arab Middle East How can the U.N. turn a blind eye to hateful, discrimination against people because of their race, ethnicity, religion and gender? While apartheid—the legally-sanctioned practice of segregation, denial of civil rights and persecution because of race, ethnicity, religion or gender—has been eliminated in South Africa, where the term originated, it continues to be practiced in many parts of the world, particularly in the Arab Middle East and Iran. Why does the United Nations Human Rights Council continue to attack free, democratic Israel, yet refuse to condemn these true crimes against humanity?

Brenda R isacher, a hat designer, looks at feathers used to embellish hats called fascinators at Over My Head, a hat botique in Upper Arlington.

Royal wedding helps hat shop Amand a Cahoon Lantern reporter Viewers worldwide tuned in to watch The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on TV. While many were interested in watching the romantic wedding, there were other eye-catching moments apart from the actual ceremony, like the headwear of the attendees. Over My Head, a hat boutique located at 1987 Guilford Rd. in Upper Arlington, has seen an increase in demand for hats that are similar to the style worn by Middleton and wedding guests. Hat trends are changing because of Middleton and the royal wedding, said Bethany Golden, owner of Over My Head. Golden said her boutique saw an

increase of almost 50 percent in sales from last year during the hat season, which includes the Kentucky Derby, Hat Day at the Franklin Park Conservatory and wedding season. The hat style that is dominating now is the fascinator, worn by Middleton, Golden said. Fascinators are small hats or headbands worn on one side of the head, Golden said. They are often embellished with feathers, flowers or veiling. Unlike regular hats that have a brim, a fascinator must be attached to your head, Golden said. The definition of a fascinator is that it changes your profile, Golden said. “With a big hat, you see mostly hat (when a person is wearing it),” Golden said. “But with a fascinator, it kind of adds to you, versus getting covered up by a big hat.” Golden said Over My Head sold

Demi Moore wore a hat that was similar to the Middleton-style on the red carpet at the MET Ball, Burkhard said, “which is something you’ve never really seen until now.” Golden said the majority of the fascinators in her store, which range in price from roughly $150 to $450, are made by Brenda Risacher, a local hat designer. Risacher said she does not try to copy the exact hats worn by Middleton. The designer said she makes the hat base, then “starts playing with the feathers and trying to get that whole Kate Middleton look.” Golden said she thinks fascinators should become a fashion staple. “If Kate Middleton continues to wear hats, then I think we’ll see everyone else follow suit,” Burkhard said.

four fascinators for every one regular hat this year. She said the boutique sold one fascinator in 2010 and has sold 38 in 2011. Golden said she thinks the increase in demand comes from women wanting to wear Middleton’s style. “With the popularity of the Royal Wedding and Kate Middleton, I think that femininity is starting to come back,” Golden said. “So you see dresses coming back, and you see headbands and flowers and hair adornments coming back. I think that’s all part of it.” Hilary Burkhard, a fourth-year in fashion merchandising and the former public relations chair of the Fashion Student Organization, said she has seen more embellished headbands at retailers like H&M and Forever 21. Burkhard said those stores are interpreting the fascinator style.

Andrew R annells appears in ‘The Book of Mormon,’ which garnered 14 Tony Awards nominations.

No one cares about the Tony Awards. At least, that’s what my friends keep telling me. It’s true: Broadway’s most prestigious award celebration flies under the radar for a lot of people. The fact of the matter is, no one goes to see plays or musicals anymore. It’s a novelty for tourists with nothing better to do.

This is sad but not altogether shocking. People are more inclined to spend money on an enormous production they know something about than some rinky-dink play. So the Tonys pander to wider audiences who don’t care about art, bringing in celebrity presenters with thin ties to the stage and giving the nominees for Best Revival of a Musical too much time performing. This year, even after just hearing the nominations on May 3, things are already different. Gone are the days of doling out Tonys to undeserving A-listers. (Sorry, Daniel Radcliffe.) Gone are the days of the Best Play award scraping the bottom of the barrel. And, surprisingly, gone are the days of awarding fluffy, mindless productions with no purpose other than to rake in money. While three of the four shows

nominated for Best Musical are based on movies and real-life incidents, the front-runner goes against the grain. Nominated for a whopping 14 Tony Awards, “The Book of Mormon” tells the story of two Mormon missionaries who travel to Uganda to spread their religion in, apparently, the most crass, over-the-top way possible. This is exactly what the theater community needs right now: an injection of good, old-fashioned smut. Because it’s largely uncensored, theater in general has always been a medium of creative people who don’t know when enough is enough. Only two out of the last 10 Best Musical Tony winners have been completely original. At the awards on June 12, “The Book of Mormon” has a good chance of being added to that list.

Concert helps aid Japanese relief fund Sarah marie Thomp son Lantern reporter

Apparently, there is more to high school than prom, Friday night football games and the glee club. Students from local high schools who are involved with the Rotary International’s Exchange Program planned a benefit concert. The fundraising effort, called “Jam for Japan,” was held May 6 at The Bluestone, at 583 E. Broad St. in Columbus. Rotary District 6690, which includes Columbus and southeastern Ohio, sponsored the event. So far, “Jam for Japan” has raised more than $5,000 for an organization

called ShelterBox, which will aid the students in providing necessary items for victims of the earthquake and subsequent tsunami that struck Japan on March 11 of this year. “This is way above and beyond anything we have ever done before, because usually, we do service projects in conjunction with the rotary clubs. This is the first project we have done as just high school students,” said Robin Smith, junior at the Columbus School for Girls, and co-coordinator of “Jam for Japan.” The program acts as a foreign international exchange between rotary clubs throughout the world. “We are so connected with kids from around the world. All of us know someone from Japan, or know a kid

from Ohio who has gone to Japan through our program, so there is really a personal connection there,” Smith said. Several local bands, including The Phantods, Drunk on Horseback and Angel Rocket, donated their time and talent to the relief effort by performing at the concert free of charge. “We are doing this for the joy of it. It is a great, laid-back venue, and everyone is here for a good time and a great cause,” said Robb Jarrett of Angel Rocket. Smith classifies Angel Rocket as an alternative electronica group and The Phantods and Drunk on Horseback as indie rock groups. The diversity in the setlist was accompanied by a great diversity in

the audience who came to support “Jam for Japan.” “There are high school kids, then there are 20-year-old college kids, 30-year-old people who follow the bands and then the rotarians are coming,” Smith said of the crowd. The event took about a monthand-a-half to plan, and the rotary exchange students still have a long way to go , said Quinn Georgic, junior at Buckeye Valley High School and co-coordinator of the event. Donations will be accepted at until the beginning of June, which is when the ShelterBoxes will be organized and sent to those in need in Japan.

The 2011 men’s volleyball National Champions pose with their trophy after being welcomed home to St. John Arena on Sunday. The Buckeyes defeated UC-Santa Barbara on Saturday, 3-2, in 5 sets.

Bringing home hardware Men’s volleyball notches 1st NCAA title in program history ALEX KOPILOW Senior Lantern reporter For this group of seniors in the past three seasons, the story remained the same. A bid to the NCAA Championship semifinals and nothing more. In the 2010 semifinals, the Stanford Cardinal overpowered the Ohio State men’s volleyball team in three straight sets (30-25, 30-26, 30-17). What followed was a long flight home. At that time, coach Pete Hanson told his players to write down their goal for the next season. “Each kid said his goal was to win the National Championship,” Hanson said. Now, a little more than a year later, the mission has been accomplished. All-American outside hitter Jeff Menzel jumped up for a kill on Championship point, but a wall of Steven Kehoe, Kevin Heine and Jason Tobkin stopped him in his tracks. Kehoe connected on the block as the Buckeyes defeated the California-Santa Barbara Gauchos, 3-2, for the program’s first national title. “Our coaching staff told us if we blocked him once in the last five points, we would win the match,” Kehoe said. “I think deep down we believed we earned the right to be here,” Hanson said. “It’s really cool how that came to fruition.” The Scarlet and Gray outplayed the Gauchos in about every aspect of the match, but OSU’s 26 service errors kept UCSB, which had just six service errors, in the match. “I definitely came out tense, and I think a lot of the guys did, especially from the service line,” Kehoe said. Hanson agreed. “It was clearly frustrating,” he said. “(OSU) never panicked. It’s like when a pitcher can’t locate his fastball. It will come, and it did.”

“This osu tattoo stuff is silly. Cats been getting hookups on tatts since back in ’01.” Antonio Pittman and George Washington have more in common than their zero NFL touchdowns. Apparently, it’s not just the United States’ first president who can’t tell a lie. The former Ohio State running back leaked a bit of insider insight on his Twitter on Dec. 23, the day the NCAA announced suspensions of six Buckeye football players for selling memorabilia and receiving improper benefits. Whether Pittman’s claim is true, he seems to have foreshadowed one thing: Tattoo-gate was the tip of an iceberg large enough to make Jack and Rose quiver. “Cats” have apparently “been getting hookups” on cars in Columbus for quite some time, too. But don’t go telling the millions in Buckeye Nation that it’s “silly.” It’s more startling than silly, more frightening than foolish, more jarring than juvenile. The OSU football program is entering uncharted territory. First came discounted tattoos. Then came thousands of dollars worth of sold memorabilia. Then came the revelation that coach Jim Tressel knew about the situation but opted to keep quiet. Then came The Columbus Dispatch report that the OSU compliance department was looking into 40–50 transactions between two car dealerships and Buckeye athletes and their families. Then came news that OSU football players were receiving free stamps at the post office. Then came news that players were receiving Monopoly stickers from McDonald’s without having to buy any Big Macs. OK, I made up the last two. I’m just preparing.

Crew add game No. 7 to thriving unbeaten streak PAT BRENNAN Senior Lantern reporter Of the Columbus Crew’s 13 second-half shots, only one found the back of the net. Columbus fought to a 1-1 tie against Seattle Sounders FC on Saturday at Crew Stadium to extend its unbeaten streak to seven games. But many Crew players, including defender and team captain Chad Marshall, said they expected a win. “They came out and got the early goal, which was upsetting,” Marshall said. “I think that, throughout the entire game, we were the better team. We created better chances. I don’t know what it is, but eventually, we’ll beat these guys.” Seattle forward Fredy Montero provided the Sounders with a 1-0 lead in the seventh minute, scoring a header off a cross from midfielder Erik Friberg. The Crew responded with a 67th-minute penalty-kick goal from forward Emilio Renteria to tie the game. That scoreline held for the rest of the contest. The tie was just the third in the Crew’s history against Seattle and improved their all-time record against Seattle to 0-3-3. Last season, the Crew suffered a 0-2-1 record against the Sounders, which included a 4-0 defeat in league play Sept. 18 and a 2-1 loss at Seattle’s Qwest Field in the United States Open Cup final just 17 days later.

Mounting violations could be program’s downfall Still, this is no longer just a black eye on the program. Both eyes are swollen shut, and there’s no way of seeing what will happen next. When the NCAA delivers its knockout punch, it likely will take OSU years to get back on its feet. It’s like tugging on the string that pulls down the ladder leading to the attic, only when you pull, years worth of storage falls in your face that you didn’t think was there. The untouched boxes sat and accumulated more and more dust over the years. You didn’t pay close enough attention. Now, ridding of that dust will take even longer than it did for it to pile up higher than Mount Everest. It’ll take a monsoon to rinse the dust off compliance director Doug Archie, athletic director Gene Smith, even university President E. Gordon Gee. Thing is, NCAA compliance shouldn’t be relegated to the attic in the first place. For an athletic department sporting the nation’s most varsity teams and one of the largest budgets, for a football program rooted in the sport’s uppermost echelon of history and success, compliance

Tournament MVP Kehoe recorded season-high 66 assists Hanson said it was key to isolate Menzel and force his supporting cast to win the match. “I think when you hold an All-American to 12 kills on 40 swings and he hits .025, you’ve done a pretty good job,” Hanson said. Junior Shawn Sangrey led OSU with a matchhigh 32.5 points and 30 kills. His career-high 30 kills are the most by any Buckeye this season. Kehoe added a season-high 65 assists and was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.

must be the dining room, where nothing gets touched without permission. No one lays a finger on the expensive china without a university official overseeing the encounter. It’ll take much more than Tressel attending a fiveday compliance seminar in early June to eradicate the problems running rampant throughout the program. “We’re very fortunate that we do not have a systemic problem in our program.” Smith said that the same day Pittman suggested otherwise. Clearly, ignorance is no longer bliss at OSU. Ignorance placed Tressel in murky water. Now it’s making Smith and the rest of the athletic department look naive. OSU is working its way toward the NCAA’s “death sentence,” in which it deems an athletic department to have a “lack of institutional control.” OSU avoided that charge in the NCAA’s Notice of Allegations sent to Gee on April 21. But that was before the car reports and before whatever inevitable infraction is unearthed next. Archie’s days appear to be numbered. Tressel’s days appear to be numbered. Even Smith’s clock could be ticking toward zero. It’d be “silly” to rule anything out at this point. “Cats” haven’t been caught red-handed like this before.

Following tie, Crew move to No. 2 in Eastern Conference Crew midfielder Robbie Rogers said he felt Columbus was the better team Saturday. “I really felt like we killed them in the second half,” Rogers said. “I wanted to win that one really bad. I’ll keep this in mind when we go to Seattle.” The Crew outshot Seattle, 13-1, in the final 45 minutes, and also took six corner kicks in the half — three of which came in stoppage time — compared to only one taken by Seattle. Renteria, who spoke through a translator, even said he felt there was much to be desired from his game-tying penalty-kick goal. “I hit it terribly,” he said. Terribly hit or not, Renteria’s goal increased the Crew’s point total in the standings to 13 and allowed them to jump to second place in the Eastern Conference. Columbus now trails the No. 1 New York Red Bulls by two points.

Despite helping to improve the team’s place in the standings, Renteria expressed disappointment in the tie, saying it would have been nice to take three points from Saturday’s match. “There were plenty of opportunities, probably the most I’ve seen since the beginning of the season,” he said. “It would have been nice to get that extra goal.” By contrast, Columbus coach Robert Warzycha said he was satisfied with his team’s play. “I think we started the game pretty well,” he said. “I think there was good balance.” Warzycha also said he was happy to take a result in the form of a tie from Saturday’s match. “The most important thing is the result at the end of the day,” he said. “The result is after 90 minutes. I’m happy that we tied the game.” The Crew next will travel to California for a Saturday match against the San Jose Earthquakes. Kickoff is scheduled for 10:30 p.m.

“For our seniors, it was their last collegiate volleyball game ever,” Sangrey said. “We wanted to go out on top, and that’s what we did.” Kehoe, Sangrey and John Klanac were named to the All-Tournament team. OSU overcame its serving woes with a strong offensive effort. The Buckeyes outhit UCSB .329 to .198, had a 74-45 advantage in kills and led the match in assists, 70-42. The Buckeyes are the third team outside the West to win the title. Penn State won in 1994 and 2008. OSU holds a 1-2 record in national title games. The Buckeyes lost, 3-1, against USC in 1977 and, 3-0, to UCLA in 2000.
