DAN HOPE Oller reporter firstname.lastname@example.org The outlook for the Ohio State football program is positive heading into Saturday’s LiFESports Spring Game. Entering his second season at the helm of the program, coach Urban Meyer has yet to lose a football game, and, with the team’s postseason ban from last season no longer in place, the Buckeyes are expected by many to be national championship contenders coming off a 12-0 season. However, the future of OSU football didn’t look so bright on May 30, 2011, when Jim Tressel, who compiled a 106-22 record over 10 years as OSU’s coach and led the Buckeyes to a national championship in his second season at the school, resigned as coach. Tressel’s resignation came following an improper
benefits scandal that gained national publicity, and has since been dubbed as “Tattoo-Gate.” “Unfortunately we needed to move on, but obviously you would not have created the end of our tenure there the way that it happened,” Tressel told The Lantern in an exclusive interview Friday. On Dec. 23, 2010, the NCAA suspended quarterback Terrelle Pryor, running back Dan Herron, receiver DeVier Posey, offensive tackle Mike Adams and defensive end Solomon Thomas — all of whom played for the Buckeyes at the time — for the first five games of the 2011 season for selling memorabilia and receiving improper benefits from Eddie Rife, owner of Fine Line Ink tattoo parlor. Linebacker Jordan Whiting also received a one-game ban. Tressel was initially suspended for two games by OSU on March 8, 2011 and fined $250,000 for failing to report the violations committed by his players. His suspension was increased to five games nine days later, but his fine was waived following his resignation.
It got worse for OSU. On Dec. 19, 2011, the NCAA sanctioned the OSU football program with a one-year postseason ban, which kept the team out of the Big Ten Championship Game and a bowl game last season, and a nine-year scholarship reduction over three years. Those sanctions came just three weeks following Meyer’s hiring as coach on Nov. 28, 2011. Although it might have ultimately cost Tressel his coaching career — he also received a five-year show-cause penalty in the NCAA’s sanctions, which would result in penalties for any NCAA school that hires him as coach within that time window — he did not express regret for failing to report his players’ violations. “If my fault is on the loyalty side, I’ll take it,” Tressel said.

The university built an enrollment plan three years ago, studying the demographics in Ohio, the Midwest and across the country. Evanovich said that in Ohio, the number of high school graduates has been decreasing over the past three years. The state is losing 2 to 3 percent of high school graduates every year. He said “the same picture is very true in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Illinois.” The solution was to make investments in states, such as Florida, Texas and California, that had “double-digits growths in high school graduates,” Evanovich said. The university already has recruiters placed in Los Angeles, Dallas and Atlanta. “What we really want to do is keep the best Ohio kids here and create a brain gain of really smart students from across the country and now across

There have been more out-of-state applicants to Ohio State than in-state applicants for the first time in school history. However, vice president for strategic enrollment planning, Dolan Evanovich, said it’s part of the university’s strategic plan. “Ten years ago, we had less than 20,000 applications and this year we are just over 35,400 applications and more of those applications are from out-ofstate nonresidents in the first time in the history of the university,” he said. Out-of-state students made up about 19,900 and in-state students made up about 15,500 of the roughly 35,400 applications received.

The Spring Game offers football fans another day to spend in Ohio Stadium, but students aren’t getting the chance this year as the Buckeyes plan to travel to Cincinnati for the game. Ohio State is set to play in Paul Brown Stadium this Saturday, home to the Cincinnati Bengals. The stadium fits about 65,535 attendees; however, Spring Game attendance in 2012 was about 81,100. While traditionally a large number of fans come to watch the team scrimmage, Paul Brown Stadium might not be filled if some students are unwilling to make the approximately two-hour drive from Columbus. Alex Highley, a fifth-year in political science, said he hasn’t even thought about making the trip to what he called a “glorified practice” in Cincinnati and is disappointed he can’t head to the Horseshoe one last time before graduating. “I went the last two years. I’m pretty disappointed; I was never planning on going to Cincinnati just for the Spring Game,” Highley said. Highley said many fans go to the game because it’s merely something different to do in the spring. “The best part about the Spring Game is it’s in Columbus. It’s more

campus Urban Meyer joins Spielman Fund in ﬁght against cancer LIZ DICKEY Lantern reporter email@example.com While many people probably think of coach Urban Meyer as a force on the football field, he’s also making his presence known in cancer research at Ohio State. Meyer and his wife, Shelley, served as honorary chairs of the 2013 Stefanie’s Champions awards luncheon Wednesday at the Ohio Union. Chris Spielman, the face of the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research, introduced them as two people who understand the meaning of service. “We are joining the fight, we are not sitting back,” Urban Meyer said. The Meyers have established the Urban and Shelley Meyer Fund for Cancer Research to benefit OSU’s Comprehensive Cancer Center - Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Urban Meyer lost both of his parents to cancer and spent many hours throughout his parents’ treatments in the OSU medical centers. Urban Meyer discovered his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer during his first year at OSU while working as a graduate assistant. “They actually put her in a room that overlooked the stadium,” Urban Meyer said. “I never forgot that, the way they treated my mom.” When Urban Meyer returned to OSU, he knew he wanted to get involved with the hospitals. He called to set up meetings with people from the medical centers. “We are going to be a part of the new James Hospital and we are going (to) build a room there, a reception room with all kinds of memorabilia,” he said.

OSU football coach Urban Meyer. The coach spoke at the 2013 Stefanie’s Champions awards luncheon April 10 at the Ohio Union. The Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research was started by former OSU football player Chris Spielman and his wife, Stefanie, with the goal of raising $250,000 for breast cancer research. The fund has raised more than $10 million for The James. Stefanie Spielman, who was first treated for breast cancer in late 1990s, died from the disease in 2009. The Spielmans presented awards to this year’s five “Stefanie’s Champions” during the luncheon on Wednesday, which are given to
individuals who provide care and support during times of treatment and are based on nominations from cancer survivors. The five Stefanie’s Champions were to James Caudill, David Zartman, Josh Huffman, Kathy Peugh and Dennis McFadden, all Ohio residents. Caudill, Zartman and Huffman were nominated by their wives, Peugh by her mother-in-law and McFadden by his friend. Cancer costs the U.S. about $125 billion per year, not just in research, but also in lives lost, said Michael Caligiuri, director of the Comprehensive Cancer Center. “The federal government has ﬂat-lined cancer research and now with sequestration, there will be another 9 percent cut to us this year,” Caligiuri said. The sequester is a series of budget cuts set to remove $1.2 trillion from the federal budget over the next decade, “If we are ever going to get ahead, we have to one, reverse the federal trend, and two, we in the mean time have to call on our supporters like Chris Spielman to step up and fill that gap,” Caligiuiri said. Shelley Meyer sees that necessity as well. “Fighting cancer is a cause that Urban and I are extremely passionate about,” Shelley Meyer said. Shelley Meyer’s first-grade friend, Angie, was brought to the Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center after a second bout of cancer was discovered. The diagnosis came two weeks after Shelley Meyer’s friend Angie attended the first home Buckeye game with Urban Meyer as coach. Angie transferred all of her care to the treatment center after her impressive stay, Shelley Meyer said, and continues to fight under the supervision of OSU oncologists. “She is so grateful for the care she has received,” Shelley Meyer said.

RITIKA SHAH Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Ohio State’s new $85,000 Schedule Planner option aims to make registering for classes more convenient for students. Unlike Schedulizer, a third-party website independent from the university that some students use to plan their classes, Schedule Planner is integrated with OSU’s existing course registration system. Rather than selecting individual sections of courses, as Schedulizer allows, Schedule Planner lets students choose which courses they need to take and in turn, will find the most efficient opportunities for students to take those courses. OSU’s new planning service has been available to students since October. Students can find Schedule Planner in their Student Center on BuckeyeLink. They can then use it to export one of many potential sample schedules offered to them to their shopping cart when registering for classes. Schedule Planner was developed by a company called College
Scheduler, LLC. Robert Strazzarino, founder and CEO of College Scheduler LLC, said he conjured the idea for Schedule Planner during his own undergraduate career. “It was my sophomore year of college and I was just making a schedule by hand …I realized there’s tens of thousands of possible schedules,” he said. “I can’t evaluate them all with pen and paper.” Jack Miner, OSU senior associate registrar, said Schedule Planner was implemented due to student backlash toward Schedulizer’s inaccuracy. “One of the issues students were coming to us and saying that they had was the information that website was providing was inaccurate,” Miner said. “We wanted to put a system in that would draw students away from other vendors that were providing bad information.” Schedulizer uses general public records to create their database of classes. For this reason, their system does not update seat availability or other changes in OSU’s schedule. Futhermore, Miner said increasing numbers of students were having

the world because we are using our gateways that we opened up in Shanghai, China and Mumbai, India,” he said. OSU President E. Gordon Gee was recently in Sao Paolo to lay the groundwork for a third center. OSU is becoming more national and international. The goal is to have about 25 percent of OSU’s freshmen be from out-of-state with about 18 percent of that 25 being domestic and the remaining being international, Evanovich said. “We feel that mix of about 75 percent in-state 25 percent out-of-state nonresident is a pretty good mix for a university our size to really be a national and international university,” he said. OSU is pushing to include the best kids from Ohio, the nation, and across the world in order to create a healthy competitive environment and to diversify the university’s population. Even though out-of-state students pay more tuition than in-state residents, Evanovich wanted to point out that this is not the “driver” behind the strategic plan. However, with the sequestration, a series of budget cuts set to remove $1.2 trillion from the federal budget over the next decade, he said “the revenue does help when you have students paying more from nonresidents. It helps in tight economic times.”
Spring Game from 1A like a social event than anything else where you’re just like, ‘Hey, let’s go to the Spring Game and have a good time.’ But this year, I haven’t heard of anyone going to the game,” he said. Stephanie Poeppelman, a second-year in accounting and Block “O” president, will be traveling to Cincinnati for the game, but not with Block “O” members. “Transportation costs a lot of money, so we couldn’t afford to put together a Block ‘O’ road trip,” Poeppelman said. “I think that’s what is deterring a lot of students from going is because of the fact it’s in Cincinnati. That’s two hours away.” Poeppelman will be getting to the game via bus with a limited number of students through the Office of Student Life. She said some of her friends in Block “O” will be going through other means of transportation. Tyler Price, a third-year in human nutrition, is

a more difficult time registering in five to six classes on the semester system rather than only three or four in quarters. “This was really a case where students had said to us over the last year that they’d really like us to develop something that was user friendly and more up to date,” Miner said. Through a partnership between the Office of the University Registrar and Office of the Chief Information Officer, College Scheduler was brought in to create the program for OSU. Miner said a number of other Big Ten schools and Ohio schools have begun using it at their campuses as well, including Penn State, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Wright State. John Wanzer, assistant provost in OSU’s Office of Undergraduate Education, brought a number of academic advisers into the process. He said Schedule Planner will eventually also allow access for them to make changes to students’ schedules. The Registrar’s Office or any department head can go into the program and look at what students are searching for most often. These demand reports could lead to decisions about opening up more sections of a particular class. Jay Searson, CEO of Schedulizer Inc., said in an email that he is surprised OSU decided to create its own system rather than reach out to Schedulizer about accuracy. “It’s certainly true that Schedulizer’s accuracy has suffered since Ohio State moved to the Peoplesoft system,” Searson said. “We appreciate that this is a problem for many students, and are working on some new technology to crawl more quickly.” Searson said OSU’s course scheduling program is hosted on an interface which can be complex. For example, the Department of Chemistry can’t be viewed all at once because it has too many sections. For this reason, Schedulizer can take two days to a week to update. “What’s very strange about the university’s decision

Despite these difficult times for some, the university must stay focused on affordability, so that students aren’t in major debt by graduation day, Evanovich said. This mindset worked well for Elizabeth Fernandez, a third-year in civil engineering, who is originally from Tampa, Fla. She had always wanted to go out of state with OSU being her second choice. However, that changed when the university offered her a scholarship through the Office of Diversity and Inclusions. “All the other out-of-state schools that I got accepted to I did not get scholarships for or not enough scholarships, so since I got the biggest scholarship from here, it definitely helped,” Fernandez said. During hard times, not only is the university thinking about affordability, but students are as well. Charles Smith, a political science coordinating adviser, said the relationship between out-of-state tuition and what OSU can provide is an “internal struggle.” “‘Is my education at Ohio State going to be worth the high cost of having to pay out-of-state tuition?’ And if they are getting over that first hurtle, then I think that is a feather in OSU’s cap because it means that they are willing to come here to get the education that we provide,” Smith said.
a member of Block “O” but will not be making the 100-mile plus trip to watch the game. “I’ve asked a lot of friends and hardly anyone is going unless they have family or friends down there,” Price said. Poeppelman said it’s disappointing the Spring Game won’t be the same this year, but is trying to stay positive. “I’m glad the ‘Shoe is getting renovated, but I can understand students are disappointed with not being able to go,” she said. “It will be a cool change of scenery for the team and fans that will be going.” Highley agreed it would be interesting for the fans attending the game in an NFL stadium but wished he could go to a game at Ohio Stadium one more time. “There are only a limited number of times you get to experience a game in the ‘Shoe and the Spring Game gives you one more chance to do so. But you don’t get that this year,” he said. The Spring Game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.
is that with their help we could easily provide almost real-time accuracy,” Searson said. He added that Cornell University eased the process for Schedulizer by producing a second course list that the company could use to stay up-to-date. “Certainly it uses quite a few fewer dollars to publish a list than to create and maintain an interactive course-planning website,” Searson said. It cost OSU $85,000 to implement Schedule Planner. Wanzer said although Schedule Planner has been available to students since October, it had a low profile rollout to allow opportunities for debugging. Despite the lack of attention, more than 6,000 individual students made use of it in scheduling for Spring Semester. One of these students is Nilang Vyas, a third-year in astronomy and astrophysics and theoretical math. He said while Schedule Planner is convenient, it can get confusing for first-time users. Vyas also said since he takes a variety of classes, he starts planning his schedule in advance. However, Schedule Planner doesn’t give students the option. “One thing that I found inconvenient was that you can’t use it unless your scheduling window is open. I think they should let you use it whenever you need it,” he added. Ephraim Ungar, a second-year in history and English said Schedule Planner is unnecessary. “I could really care less,” he said. “I make my schedule with my advisers and a piece of paper. I don’t need a computer program to do it for me.” Despite initial bugs in the system, many students found Schedule Planner helpful. Members of the OCIO Student Advisory Group were able to test run the software before the general student body. Emily Cadwallader, vice president of the Advisory Group and a third-year in education, said that out of the 35 people at the advisory group meeting, “everybody seemed to positively react to (Schedule Planner).” “I think it’s going to make scheduling a whole lot faster and a whole lot easier,” Cadwallader said.

campus Wounds from 1A Tressel said OSU’s violations were a result of “personal decisions” made by his players. “Sometimes they’re the right decisions, and sometimes they’re the wrong,” Tressel said. Whiting said his violation came as a result of accepting a discount on a tattoo, and said he did not realize he was receiving a discount at the time. “Someone told me it was a certain price, and I said OK,” Whiting told The Lantern in January. “I think the only thing that I probably could have done differently is … after I had got my tattoos, maybe ask, ‘Well, is that shop minimum?’ or ‘Do you offer this to anybody else?’” Whiting said he believes most other players in his situation would have made the same decision he did. “Going through that whole situation, being part of something that was so big, it was hard,” Whiting said. “It definitely was, because you have to go through the situation where you don’t want to be seen in public, only thing you want to do is stay inside … That was hard to deal with, very hard to deal with.” Whiting believes people have misconceptions about the players’ sanctions. “Honestly, I don’t agree with the whole situation or how it went down,” Whiting said. “I honestly feel like, had a lot of the athletes had an opportunity to vocalize their story, I feel like it would be totally different. I think a lot of people would feel differently.” “I haven’t personally been bluntly offered something like, ‘Hey, do you want this?’ … I’ve known guys that have been offered things that have denied them,” Whiting said. “It’s really a hard thing to do, especially when you’re coming from situations where when you’re younger, you didn’t have anything. When you’re growing up and you don’t have anything, you don’t have the luxuries of things, you tend to want to do that (accept benefits).” Although he said getting a scholarship to pay for his education was a “blessing,” he was not able to take full advantage of his academic opportunity while still playing football at OSU. “In some situations, athletes are not able to pursue their academic dreams because of the game that they play,” Whiting said. “For instance, I wanted to do architecture. Unfortunately I could not pursue my architecture dreams at that moment … because football takes a lot of time, (and) so does taking the major of architecture.” Whiting left the OSU football team prior to last season. He transferred to Louisville but did not play last season and is no longer on its roster. He is working on completing his degree in marketing and is currently enrolled to begin classes at OSU again in June. Pryor, Herron, Posey, Adams and Thomas did not respond to The Lantern’s attempts to contact them. Tressel said there are “valid arguments on both sides” of whether NCAA players should be able to profit from playing football, but said it isn’t an excuse for what happened in Tattoo-Gate. “Right now, all you can worry about when you’re working with your student-athletes is that the rules are what the rules are right now,” Tressel said. “If they ever are changed, fine, but until they’re changed, our job is to make sure we do what we’re supposed to do.” Even so, Tressel said he is not sure he could have prevented Tattoo-Gate from happening. “If you’re any kind of competitor or have any kind of feeling for the group you’re a part of, you always look back and say that you wish you would have been better at what you did than you were,” Tressel said. “If you talked to the kids 999 times about things, maybe you should have talked to them 1,000 … but I can’t sit there and say that I know that if this, this and this were done, we wouldn’t have had that problem.”

Tressel said it is “really difficult to pinpoint” whether there were cultural issues within the OSU football program that allowed Tattoo-Gate to happen, but said he did not think it was caused by any “inherent, out-of-control, issues or problems.” “I think there are challenges for every group, especially at the highest level,” Tressel said. “When the young people have the success they’ve had, when the fervor of interest in a program is as high as it was and is, it’s always a challenge to not error. “But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be anything ever happen again at Ohio State or anywhere else,” Tressel added. “It is … really a difficult time we live in … when you have that type of atmosphere, it’s sometimes difficult to navigate. What I always liked about Ohio State and still like about Ohio State is that as difficult as the challenge is, it’s still a great place with a great culture.” Although OSU was in a transition period under then-interim coach Luke Fickell, and in the midst of what ended up being the program’s first losing season since 1988, at the time of Meyer’s hire, OSU’s current coach said he did not believe there was a cultural issue within the OSU program when he was hired. “It was not a cultural issue here,” Meyer told The Lantern during an exclusive interview April 1. “It was a mistake, and we’ve all made mistakes. If there was a cultural issue here, we wouldn’t have won 12 games last year.” Tressel said he was unsurprised by the Buckeyes’ success last season. “A, I knew we had great talent and B, coach Meyer and his staff, those guys win,” Tressel said. “I always say winners win.” Tressel said it was “very disappointing” for last year’s team that they did not get to participate in postseason play as a result of Tattoo-Gate, but he does not think the team allowed that to affect them. “They didn’t allow them to weigh on them,” Tressel said. “They went into the season, they said, ‘OK, we know the score. The score is we only get to play 12 games.’ And so the only thing you can do is do the best you can. They did a great job of blocking that out and I thought they handled that the right way, and that’s what you have to do … because that would do nothing but affect your performance.” Now entering his second season and with the postseason ban in the past, Meyer said he does not feel the scandal’s presence on the program aside from the scholarship reductions, which will continue to be in place for one more recruiting season. “We’re going to be nine, three per year for three years, and that’s real. I can feel it out there, like we should have three more players than we have vright now,” Meyer said. “And someone might say, well it’s only three players.
Well, it’s only (defensive end, 2012 senior) John Simon, Braxton (Miller, junior quarterback) and (senior running back) Carlos Hyde. Who knows who those three players are?” Aside from having fewer scholarships, however, Meyer said Tattoo-Gate has not caused him any additional issues in recruiting. “It’s one of the easiest sells I’ve ever had,” Meyer said of recruiting players to OSU. “We have a very good graduation rate, very good APR (Academic Progress Rate), our support system’s incredible. Then you start talking about facilities, walk around you see great facilities, you see everything’s in order, you see 12-0 season, great momentum.” The APR is a standard used by the NCAA based upon the retention and eligibility of student-athletes measured over a four-year span. In the NCAA’s most-recent APR scores released in June 2012, OSU’s score of 988 (out of a total possible 1,000 points) ranked second to Northwestern in the Big Ten Conference. OSU athletic director Gene Smith told The Lantern during an exclusive interview in February he believes he and his staff have learned from the scandal and have made OSU athletics better as a result. “Right now we’re in a great spot. We just got to keep our strive towards excellence,” Smith said. “I’ve never lost that focus, even when we were going through our challenges.” As for Tressel, he is in his second year at the University of Akron in a non-football position as the university’s vice president of Strategic Engagement. “It’s really busy,” Tressel said. “I used to have 100 guys and a dozen coaches and tried to recruit 20 guys a year and so it was very concentrated, whereas now as the vice president … I’ve got 28,000 students and about 300-400 employees, so it’s been a different experience, and it’s been fun.” Tressel interviewed for the Indianapolis Colts’ head coaching job in January 2012, according to multiple reports, after working as the Colts’ replay consultant for the 2011 season. He said he has not given any thought since joining the Akron faculty about whether he will eventually return to coaching. “I have not woken up one morning and said, you know, I’ve got to go back and coach,” Tressel said. “I did that for a long time and it was wonderful, and we were blessed to have moderate success, and it was just a wonderful profession, existence, calling … but I’ve been really kind of totally embraced a new challenge. “I’ve done that many times (coaching),” Tressel added. “In some ways it’s not quite as exciting when you’ve already done it.”

The Buckeyes are scheduled to make the approximately two-hour trip to Cincinnati and Paul Brown Stadium on Saturday, to play in front of the public for the first time since beating Michigan in late November. Here are things to keep an eye on during the 2013 edition of the Scarlet and Gray scrimmage. Cincinnati Buckeyes returning to their hometown Coach Urban Meyer called playing in Cincinnati a “great idea” and hopes fans fill the stadium even though the game will not be on campus. He said he knows that the players from Cincinnati are looking forward to playing in their hometown. Starting left guard Andrew Norwell is one of those players, and he said he “couldn’t help to be excited for Saturday.” “I love playing in the ‘Shoe, but playing in Cincinnati hits home to me,” the senior from Anderson High School said. “Playing in Cincinnati is going to be great.” Defensive end Adolphus Washington said he is looking forward to playing in an NFL stadium and hopes to play well in front of the 15 friends and family members that are coming to watch. “I got a lot of people coming to the game, and everybody keeps saying they can’t wait to see me play,” Washington said. “If they make it down there, they’ll get to see me.” Both Washington and Norwell said their respective lines are improving each day. Norwell is one of four returning starters on the offensive line, with right tackle being the only vacant position. Sophomores Taylor Lantern file photo

Hartfield jumps his way into track and field lore jon shields Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org After 77 years, Jesse Owens, the former Ohio State track star and the man who thumbed his nose at Adolf Hitler and the idea of “Aryan Dominance” at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by winning four gold medals, has been supplanted in OSU outdoor long jumping lore. Redshirt senior Michael Hartfield set the new OSU record on March 29 at the 86th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays in Austin, Texas, with a personal-best jump of 8.15 meters (26-9.00), edging Owens’ mark of 8.13 meters (26-8.25) set in 1936. “That accomplishment was the biggest one I’ve done,” Hartfield said. “To break a legend’s record, he’s one of the greatest athletes of all time … and it’s been really awesome to put it all together my senior year and break that record which has been my goal since I got here.” Hartfield has been one of the most decorated athletes in OSU track history, garnering three second team All-American honors in the long jump, five All-Big Ten selections for the long and triple jumps and earning the titles of 2011 Big Ten Field Athlete of the Year and the 2011 U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Great Lakes Outdoor Field Athlete
of the Year. On Wednesday, Hartfield was also named Big Ten Field Athlete of the Week, his second time earning the honor this season and the fourth time in his career. His performance at the Jim Click Shootout Saturday, where he earned first-place with a mark of 8.10 meters (26-7.00) in the long jump and first-place in the triple jump with a 15.84 meters (51-11.75) mark, garnered him the honor. But even with all of the accolades and breaking Owens’ record, Hartfield said he isn’t done just yet. “I’m going to keep pushing for another record, try and push a world record,” Hartfield said. “You never know, I just gotta keep working hard and keep pushing the limits and see where it takes you.” The current long jump world record is 8.95 meters, set by Mike Powell from the U.S. in 1991. His jumps coach, Brian Brillon, said when he first met Hartfield, he saw potential for him to break Owens’ record. “When I first met him and we first did some drills, Mike just had that ‘it’ factor,” Brillon said. “And you know when you see ‘it.’ Each year he’s been progressing, and he’s one of those guys determined to get better. He’s a blessing to coach.” Hartfield is already looking ahead to the 2013 Big Ten Outdoor Track Championships, which are set to be held at Jesse Owens Memorial
Stadium on May 10. He said he has a goal to win a conference title as a senior on the Buckeyes’ home track. “I want to help the team toward a Big Ten Championship, that’s still the goal,” Hartfield said. “Let’s try and get a championship … let’s just keep pushing to get better, that’s basically the team goal always.” Brillon said Hartfield’s work ethic doesn’t just inspire the team, but also his coaches. Brillon said Hartfield’s leadership might be his biggest asset. “I think (Mike’s) helped all of us get better,” Brillon said. “He’s helped me be a better coach, he’s helped the other athletes be better just having him on the team, and he brings an atmosphere of competitiveness and excellence.” Hartfield’s jumping career won’t end once he removes the Scarlet and Gray track suit. Hartfield said his personal goals stretch far beyond the confines of the aptly named Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. “I plan to go on the pro circuit and to try and make the world team,” Hartfield said. “Everyone wants to be an Olympian, that’s the peak. I want to make the Olympic team and say I’m an Olympian.” Hartfield and OSU’s next home meet is the Jesse Owens Track Classic, which is scheduled to begin April 19 at 4 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

The Ohio State men’s tennis team will look to avenge its most recent Big Ten loss as it prepares to take on rival Illinois later this week. The No. 5 Buckeyes (24-2, 7-0) have not lost a conference match since April 29, 2012, when the team came up short against Illinois (12-8, 5-2), 4-3, in the 2012 Big Ten Tournament championship match in Evanston, Ill. Having secured a 7-0 shutout victory against the Illini earlier in the regular season, many felt the regular season conference champion Buckeyes were robbed of their seventh-consecutive tournament crown. Reflecting back on the loss, OSU coach Ty Tucker said that he remembers players’ attitudes to have been the major contributing factor. “I remember the attitudes not being there. It (was) a windy, cold day, the ball’s not going through the air fast, we’d beat (Illinois) pretty badly earlier on (in Columbus) in the regular season … then we got (to Evanston), and it’s probably a 48, 49 degree day … and we got outfought. When they were fighting us hard and standing up to us, we looked to not have a good attitude,” Tucker said. Tucker said many of his top performers, such as junior Blaz Rola and senior Connor Smith, lost close matches against Illinois and exhibited “frustrated” behaviors and “deer in the headlights” looks. Rola said the tournament loss to the Illini was one of the program’s hardest losses during his time at OSU. “For the last three years I’ve been here, the final
against Illinois was not only the toughest match to lose, but we weren’t even close to our standards. I think that hurt us the most,” he said. The opportunity to avenge last season’s upset loss is what has fueled the Scarlet and Gray squad for much of the 2013 campaign. “We are really, really motivated. I heard guys (on the team) talking about it through the whole year, and we are really excited to play (Illinois),” Rola said. Redshirt junior Peter Kobelt said he is certain OSU will not underestimate its conference rival when they face off this Friday. “After what happened last year, there will be no (underestimating) happening. We’re going to take them just as seriously as we would take any other Big Ten team,” Kobelt said. “(Illinois) plays well at home, they bring out great crowds, and they really rally off each other, so we’ll be ready to go.” Even with the Buckeyes’ increased focus and motivation toward the Illinois rematch, Tucker and his squad still anticipate a close, hard-fought match. OSU sits atop the Big Ten standings, with the Illini slotted in third place. “In the 16 years I’ve been here as an assistant coach and head coach, Illinois has set the standard. Illinois won a national title, Illinois was the last one to beat us at home, Illinois was the last one to beat us in the Big Ten. All roads always go through Illinois, and it doesn’t matter — it’s like an Ohio State-Michigan football game,” he said. Tucker also mentioned that Illinois’ coach, Brad Dancer, is someone he played tennis against growing up and has known for about 30 years.

Spring from 5A Decker and Chase Farris are looking to fill the void, and Norwell said the starting job has yet to be decided, but currently Decker is running with the first-string offense. “(Taylor) had one of his best practices on Monday and is improving a lot, the same with Chase,” Norwell said. “They’re still battling out, it’s not in stone yet, and it really could be either one of them.” Meyer said not having that position filled is something that is “very bothersome” to him and the coaching staff. “The offensive line kind of set a nice little standard last year. I thought we were the best offensive line in the Big Ten,” Meyer said. “As of practice 13, we are not the best offensive line in the Big Ten.” Washington said the defensive line is looking the best it has all spring. “At the beginning, we were kind of unsure about what we were going to do, but we came out those first couple practices and we went at it with the offensive line,” the sophomore from Taft said. “It just built up confidence and now we are doing pretty good.” Kerry Coombs: Cincinnati is “my town” Defensive backs coach and special teams coordinator Kerry Coombs, a former 50-year native of the Queen City and former coach of football powerhouse Colerain High School, said he could not wait to show the public what the Buckeyes have been working on this spring. “I am just thrilled to be able to go down there with these kids, to share that experience with them and to be in that stadium with them,” Coombs said. “That’s my town. I love that place, so I am excited to be going home Saturday.” Coombs said no matter where OSU plays football, it will help in recruiting, and the people of Cincinnati are looking forward to the chance to watch the Spring Game. “Anytime we can put our product in front of people, that’s going to be a plus for us,” Coombs said. “For the entire city of Cincinnati, I think the people that come to the Spring Game are going to be really excited about that, and I think

It’s really important to play in that environment.” Junior quarterback Braxton Miller will wear a black jersey in the game, as will senior Kenny Guiton, to signify no contact on the Buckeye

Meyer also said that he “is going to carry a baseball bat” with him in order to make sure. Curtis Grant: starting middle linebacker Meyer said he is very pleased with how junior Curtis Grant has developed this spring. Grant, the much maligned top-rated middle linebacker coming out of Virginia in 2011, is widely expected to make an impact next season alongside fellow junior linebacker Ryan Shazier. Meyer named him the starter at the position for now,
and said Grant has a totally different mindset than last year. “He’s the starting middle linebacker of Ohio State right now,” Meyer said. “He wasn’t fully engaged (last year). He is a fully engaged guy right now, and that’s very settling.” Bradley Roby will not play Saturday Redshirt junior defensive back Bradley Roby’s shoulder injury has kept him out of practice, and will prevent him from playing Saturday. Meyer called keeping him out of the game a precaution. The 2013 Spring Game is scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. Saturday. Tickets will cost $18 for club seats, $12 for general reserved season and $5 for children ages 2-6. OSU student tickets will be free and be general admission.

elyse applewhite Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Ohio State women’s lacrosse has had its ups and downs this year, but as its regular season begins to wind down, the team looks to continue its three-game win streak with hard work and dedication. OSU coach Alexis Venechanos said the team knows when to be serious and crack down. “We asked our athletes to be focused and in the moment in whatever they are doing,” Venechanos said. Venechanos, however, also spoke of the team’s energy and sense of humor. “You can’t keep your game face on 24/7, nor can you be silly for 24/7,” she said. With only four games remaining in the 2013 season, the team went from a three-game losing streak into a three-game win streak. Venechanos said the
Buckeyes have stayed positive throughout their 6-6 record this season, an attitude that helped motivate them to win. “The beginning of the season, we were pretty much battletested,” Venechanos said. “We learned a lot from our wins and our losses and it got to a point in our last week where we talked about kind of putting it all together, putting the extra work in and the need for us to piece together everything and get some wins.” And OSU has been putting in that extra work, especially since its season has slowed, Venechanos said. “They have been very competitive at practices,” Venechanos said. “The last few weeks we have had a lot of games and we usually only had a day or two to prepare for another team, but now we have a week to prepare like your normal football schedule.”

RYAN ROBEY / For The Lantern
Members of the OSU baseball team run through a handshake line after a game against Marshall Wednesday at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU won, 5-0.
Fueled by some early hitting and a strong performance from freshman right-hander Jake Post, the Ohio State baseball team defeated Marshall, 5-0, on Wednesday. “All they (the offense) need to do is support this pitching staff and crunch out a few runs,” said OSU head coach Greg Beals. “You give that group of pitchers a four run lead right off the bat, it’s going to be a tough ball game.” The Buckeyes wasted no time to take the lead, scoring four runs in the first inning. Redshirt senior center fielder Joe Ciamacco started the top of the first by singling to center field. After he stole second, redshirt senior infielder Ryan Cypret followed with a base hit to right center, scoring Ciamacco. After senior infielder Kirby Pellant was retired on a
pop up, sophomore right fielder Pat Porter reached on an error when Marshall sophomore shortstop Sergio Leon slipped trying to field a groundball. In the next at bat, freshman infielder Jacob Bosiokovic scorched a double to deep left center to score the runners and put OSU up, 3-0. Marshall redshirt sophomore pitcher Kyle Kessler was then replaced by senior right-hander Matt Hummel. A wild pitch by Hummel allowed Bosiokovic to cross the plate for their fourth run of the inning. The Buckeyes threatened again in the bottom half of the second by putting three runners on base, but they were unable to get them home. A lightning delay in the middle of the third halted action for 40 minutes before play was resumed at 8:05 p.m. The delay did not seem to slow the OSU offense down, however, as they were able to tack on another run in the bottom of the fourth.

sports Like old times, The Masters is Tiger Woods v. the field michael burwell Senior Lantern reporter email@example.com One of the most exciting tournaments in golf is finally here. The top players in the world will stroll down Magnolia Lane to tee it up at the legendary Augusta National Golf Course for The Masters, the first of four annual major championships on the Professional Golfers Association Tour. The 93-player field will feature top players, past champions and even the youngest competitor in Masters’ history: 14-year-old Tianlang Guan from China, who won the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship in November to punch his ticket to Augusta, Ga. (I couldn’t imagine doing anything of this magnitude at age 14). This year’s edition features a common theme from past Masters tournaments: Tiger Woods versus the rest of the field. With three wins in five starts on the 2013 PGA Tour, and regaining the No. 1 ranking in the world after a whirlwind three years, I think Woods is a shoe-in to win for the fifth time at Augusta National. Woods is definitely my favorite to win the Masters, but here are my top-10 players who can also win the green jacket: 1. Brandt Snedeker: If there is anyone in the world who is as hot as Woods, it’s the 32-yearold from Nashville. The winner of the season-long race for last year’s FedEx Cup, Snedeker carried that momentum into 2013, posting a win and four top-three finishes in just seven starts so far on the PGA Tour. 2. Matt Kuchar: After finishing T-3 in last year’s Masters, and picking up a win earlier this year at the World Golf Championship Accenture Match Play Championship, Kuchar’s consistency over the last

Tiger Woods signs autographs before The Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga., on April 9. three years with 21 top-10 finishes makes him a key player to look for this year. 3. Justin Rose: The Englishman hasn’t finished worse than T-17 in eight events on the PGA and European tours this season. Expect him to be in the mix late afternoon on Sunday. 4. Rory McIlroy: The 23-year-old Northern Irishman has had an eventful year so far, highlighted by the switch to Nike golf clubs and inconsistent play so far. But last week’s second-place finish at the Valero Texas Open gave him the confidence he needed to try to win his third major championship. 5. Dustin Johnson: The big-hitting American’s

power of the tee will be crucial to his success this week. Look for him to score some low numbers on the par-5s, and this could be the year for him to break through for his first major championship. 6. Phil Mickelson: A three-time Masters champion playing in his favorite event? You know Lefty is going to bring his A-game to Augusta this week. 7. Lee Westwood: His success in majors in astonishing, except for one stat: wins. Westwood has yet to win that first major, despite having eight top-10 finishes in the last 16 majors. 8. Bubba Watson: The emotional roller-coaster,
and last year’s Masters’ champion, Watson knows what it takes to win at Augusta, especially with his incredible shot-shaping abilities. 9. Ian Poulter: The 37-year-old Englishman knows how to thrive on golf’s biggest stages. A Ryder Cup hero for the Europeans, Poulter will look to improve from his seventh place finish last year. 10. Keegan Bradley: Another big-hitting American, poised to add a second major championship to his impressive resume. When he won the 2011 PGA Championship as a rookie, everyone knew he could handle the pressure of a big-time tournament.
Tennis from 5A
“We just hope that (for) these guys, the motivation will be there from what happened in the Big Ten finals last year, and they’ll understand that Illinois is going to fight. No matter what happens — playing great or playing bad — that you can’t lose the level of intensity or fight.” OSU’s match against Illinois is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. on Friday in Champaign, Ill.
Tucker said if Friday’s match at Illinois is played outside, the weather could play a factor into the outcome and flow of play. The weather is expected to be cloudy in Champaign, Ill., with a high temperature of 48 degrees and 20 mph winds, according to weather.com. “If you play tennis in the Big Ten and you play outside, the ball is going to blow around and the conditions are going to be tough to beat, and it’s not going to be clean tennis,” Tucker said. All else set aside, players’ mentality will be the deciding factor as to who comes out on top, Tucker said.

Bands to give Tax Day a musical twist with C-Bus festival ROSE DAVIDSON Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org To celebrate the ending of tax season, Grandview’s Woodlands Tavern plans to rock the night away — whether everyone has paid their taxes or not. The Back Tax Music Festival is scheduled for Saturday at 7 p.m. at Woodlands Tavern — two days before the country’s official Tax Day on April 15. The lineup consists of eight acts, including local bands William The Accountant, The Saturday Giant, Karate Coyote and Post Coma Network, as well as Secret Colours (of Chicago), Kink Ador (of Nashville), The Nightbeast (of Dayton) and Mike Dillon Band (of New Orleans). “We thought, ‘Hey, let’s celebrate not only Tax Day, but those that haven’t paid their taxes,’ and that’s what a back tax is,” said Kevin Luce, vocalist and guitarist for William The Accountant. The event was planned by the members of William The Accountant, a band that’s been known to play “tax shows” around Columbus. Luce said the band’s name was inspired by his father, an accountant named — you guessed it — William. “(We’re) just trying to say that what we do takes the form of music because I’ve got a guitar and we’ve got a stage, but my dad can do a very similar thing with a calculator and a corner office,” Luce said. Each year, Tax Day is the band’s

The festival’s eight acts are to be broken up between Woodlands Taverns’ two stages — the W2 and the 1040EZ, both named for the show after tax forms. Radio station CD102.5 is a sponsor for the event, and some of the evening’s proceeds will benefit the Autism Society of America. Luce said the philanthropic support was fitting, since April is Autism Awareness Month.
“That was one angle we wanted to play up,” Luce said. “We said, ‘OK, the tax idea is fun and it’s a reason to get people to go there, but at the same time, what’s something we really care about that we also want to share?’” Luce and William The Accountant drummer Chris Murphy work as behavior analysts at Haugland Learning Center in Columbus, an educational facility for autistic children and young adults.

about how autism affects people makes for a better musical experience. “That’s when I think music is at its best,” Luce said. “It’s just about getting people together and celebrating and trying to lean on each other a little bit.” Nic Jados, an Ohio State graduate student in business and bassist for Karate Coyote, said he and his band met the members of William The Accountant last fall and “really hit things off.” “We’ve actually worked with Autism Speaks before,” Jados said. “Some of us used to work in classrooms and stuff
like that, so it’s something that we care a lot about and we try to do a lot of autism awareness types of gigs and fundraisers.” Autism Speaks is an organization dedicated to funding the research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism, according to its website. Paul Painter, booking manager at Woodlands Tavern, said he’s used to putting on larger shows at the venue and was happy to help plan this event with Luce. “I’ve known him for a long time and he always puts on a really good show,” Painter said. While Luce said he’s excited for the event to take place at Woodlands Tavern, he said he hopes to outgrow the venue. “We’re already talking with Paul about how to grow this thing … next year, hopefully Woodlands is too small of a venue to be able to host it,” Luce said. No matter where the event takes place, Luce said ultimately what he wants people actively participating in the festival. “It’s really about people coming together and being a part. I would say if there’s a specific goal, it’s that,” Luce said. “People come and they’re not just witnessing a good night, they’re taking part in it.” Tickets are $10 and each come with a raffle ticket for prizes including albums and gift cards to local restaurants. Woodlands Tavern is located at 1200 W. Third Ave. Doors are set to open at 7 p.m. and the event is scheduled to go until 2 a.m.

Rapper LL Cool J released a controversial song titled ‘Accidental Racist’ with country artist Brad Paisley.
‘Accidental Racism’ a painful, uncomfortable listen, childish take on important message ZACH HOLMES Lantern reporter email@example.com It took me three days to listen to the entire Brad Paisley, LL Cool J collaboration “Accidental Racist.” When I first heard the nearly six-minute song on Monday, I had to turn it off about halfway through. I tried again on Tuesday and did not even make it that far. Wednesday I buckled down and finally endured through the painful duet about racism that has received harsh criticism this week.
The song was leaked on Monday, one day before the release of Paisley’s new album “Wheelhouse,” which includes the song, and it has drawn more attention than the album itself. “Accidental Racist” is a story about a white man who walks into a Starbucks wearing a confederate flag shirt and is waited on by a black man. Paisley goes on to sing about how, despite the fact that he is wearing the flag of the pro-slavery Civil War army, he is not a racist. “When I put on that T-shirt, the only thing I meant to say is I’m a Skynyrd fan / The red flag on my chest somehow is like the elephant in the
corner of the South / And I just walked him right in the room.” The song becomes even more uncomfortable when LL Cool J drops in a verse countering Paisley’s. “Dear Mr. White Man, I wish you understood / What the world is really like when you’re livin’ in the hood / Just because my pants are saggin’ doesn’t mean I’m up to no good.” I appreciate the fact that Paisley and LL Cool J have put themselves out there in a sincere attempt to spread a positive message, but the execution was horrible.
How is anyone supposed to take a song seriously when the lyrics include, “If you don’t judge my do-rag / I wont judge your red flag,” and “If you don’t judge my gold chains / I’ll forget the iron chains.” Such a serious subject matter should not be subjected to such a childish song. The song’s good intentions are so clouded by the juvenile lyrics that most people cannot even appreciate what they are really trying to say: quit judging people. I recommend you listen to the song. Just once. Laugh. Then never listen to it again. But don’t lose sight of the message, it actually is important.
Asian, Latino, Dublin Irish Festivals to offer Columbus cultural experiences during summer BREANNA SOROKA Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Some students are going to leave Columbus for the summer, but the city will continue to thrive throughout the break. Each week, I’ll highlight an aspect of entertainment scheduled to take place in Columbus this summer. The city is home to a variety of ethnicities, many of which hold cultural celebrations year-round. These events easily help to broaden your horizons and give you a better sense of the world without having to travel outside of Columbus. Here you’ll find a sampling of some of the cultural festivities being held in and around the city throughout the summer.

The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are set to perform at the Dublin Irish Festival Aug. 2.
Asian Festival: May 25-26 Scheduled to take place over Memorial Day weekend, this event is set to feature a little bit of something from all of the basic cultural areas. There will be a smattering of distinctive Asian foods including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai, Cambodian, Vietnamese and Indian cuisine offered throughout the weekend, according to the festival’s website. If you consider yourself a foodie, this delectable cultural blowout is not to be missed. If the variety of food offered seems overwhelming, you can still immerse yourself in the culture the Asian Festival offers in many other ways. There are a slew of exhibits and performances scheduled, including live martial arts demonstrations, art showings and even games like Sepak-Takraw (kick volleyball) that will provide a quick taste of Asian culture.
The Asian festival is a free event and provides free parking in designated lots with shuttle rides to and from the event. If you have tried to park anywhere in Columbus, it should be obvious that all of these things combined make for a true luxury in our busy city. The festival is scheduled for May 25-26 at the Franklin Park Conservatory, 1777 E. Broad St. Though the complete schedule of weekend entertainment has not yet been published, the festival is slated to run from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. each day — perfect timing to swing by before or after work and become a world traveler for a day. Festival Latino: Aug. 10-11 For a spicier cultural experience, Festival Latino is the perfect destination. As the name suggests, Latin American heritage will be celebrated throughout the event with various performances and traditional cuisine offered by food vendors. This festival is especially family friendly, featuring an area just for kids with several hands-on activities for the younger crowd. I’m almost tempted to attend the event solely for this — personally, I’m a huge fan of the sing-alongs and soccer skill challenges scheduled for children at this festival. Not only are several musical artists slated to perform during the festival’s two-day period, but cultural dance groups will also have a chance in the spotlight. Among those entertainers slated to appear are musical artists Tony Vega and Obie Bermudez, as well as the dance groups Grupo Caribe and El Corazon de Mexico Ballet Folklorico. Several DJs are also scheduled to spin Latininfused music all weekend for the crowd to shake and shimmy to, meaning this festival can be as interactive as you make it. Festival Latino is a free event scheduled to occur Aug. 10-11 in Genoa Park, located at 303 W. Broad St. It
is scheduled to run from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. both days, so there shouldn’t be any excuses for missing out on this wealth of culture. Paid parking will be made available at several locations near the venue. Dublin Irish Festival: Aug. 2-4 The luck of the Irish will be featured in Columbus long after St. Patrick’s Day has passed in the form of the Dublin Irish Festival. This event is slated to feature a variety of activities that take a look back at traditional Irish culture, musical performances and of course beverage tastings of the finest whiskey and beer around. Hands-on learning is a major part of this festival, and there will be workshops throughout the weekend to teach those in attendance how to knit or create chainmail. If that’s not your thing, feel free to take part in music lessons instead, as long as you can provide your own instrument. No matter where your interests lie, the Dublin Irish Festival probably has something to help you broaden your artistic horizons. A slew of musical acts will also be gracing this festival, such as Gaelic Storm, Brock McGuire Band and the Red Hot Chilli Pipers. A variety of food will be featured through different vendors, but don’t worry if traditional Celtic cuisine isn’t your cup of tea — American foods will also be around. According to the website, some of the food vendors include Big Bamboo Concessions, Alien Corn, Claddagh Irish Pub and The Snack Wagon. So whether you want corned beef and Irish grog or a greasy plate of fair fries, you’re covered. The Dublin Irish Festival is scheduled to occur Aug. 2-4 in Coffman Park at 5200 Emerald Parkway in Dublin. Tickets are $7 for students if purchased before Aug. 1, or $8 when purchased at the gate of the venue. A valid ID is needed at the gate.

[ spotlight ] Columbusâ€™ Own
Fair Trade Fest headed to campus with music, goods
In an attempt to shine light on local music, The Lanternâ€™s â€œColumbusâ€™ Ownâ€? is a weekly series that will profile a new Columbus band every week.
Illogic hopes to â€˜captureâ€™ rap scene
BREANNA SOROKA Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org
CHELSEA SAVAGE Lantern reporter email@example.com When Jawhar Glassâ€™ middle school girlfriend would call him illogical, she didnâ€™t think it would turn into a name that would stick with him for years to come. â€œI came up with (the name) Illogic cause at the time I was in middle school, and I had a girlfriend and she would always tell me how illogical I was and I thought illogic sounded pretty cool,â€? the rapper said. When heâ€™s not at home in Westerville, Ohio, with his wife and children, Glass can be found perfecting his rap music. Since childhood, Glass had his heart set on becoming a musician. Writing his first rhyme at age nine, Glass received his inspiration from the rock and soul music his parents would listen to on Saturday mornings. â€œI was always into music in general and just growing up watching MTV. I just loved the music, and I was already writing short stories and just writing poems, so thatâ€™s how I got started with the whole thing,â€? Glass said. In 1997, Glass said he won the Ohio Hip Hop Expo MC Battle, at 17 years old, where he met people in the industry and became engrossed with the local rap scene. â€œI just tried to write rhymes and I got pretty good at it after a while, and when I was in high school, I would organize battles, and I would get into battles here (in Columbus),â€? Glass said. Glass recently finished working on a new album, â€œCapture the Sun,â€? which is scheduled for release on April 16. The album was part of a collaboration with producer Tony Simon, also known as â€œBlockhead.â€? The duo had previously worked on two EPs together. â€œI was trying to figure out whose production style would best fit my idea I had in my head, and Blockhead was the perfect fit and I just sent him an email asking him if he wanted to work on the record, and here we are three years later,â€? Glass said. Simon said he worked hard to come up with beats that would fit Glassâ€™ ideas for his new album.

Producer Tony Simon, known as Blockhead (left), collaborated with Columbus rapper Jawhar Glass, known as Illogic, on the rapperâ€™s album â€˜Capture the Sun.â€™ â€œMy role as being the producer was making the tracks and sequencing stuff and making sure everything needs to be where it is,â€? Simon said. â€œIt was more of Illogicâ€™s vision. He had everything in mind before the project started getting made.â€? Glassâ€™ inspiration for the album came from his late grandmother. â€œThe idea for â€˜Capture the Sunâ€™ was inspired by something my grandmother would tell me: â€˜Capturing the sun is impossible, but itâ€™s something that if you continue to work at and go after your dreams, they can be attainable if you work hard,â€™â€? he said. Glass said his inspiration also comes from his wife. â€œSheâ€™s a very hardworking woman, and sheâ€™s been through a lot of things in her life, as well as I, and she continues to push,â€? he said. After listening to some clips from â€œCapture the Sun,â€? Sarah Lautenbach, a fourth-year in psychology, said she enjoyed the vibe of the music. â€œI donâ€™t normally listen to rap music, but I can imagine myself listening to this while
Iâ€™m driving on a hot summer day with the windows down,â€? Lautenbach said. Since â€œCapture the Sunâ€? has not been released yet, Glass and Simon havenâ€™t received much feedback. â€œThe videos we put out, the songs people have heard â€” the response from that has been really good, so I feel pretty excited about our collaboration as a whole. I havenâ€™t heard much negativity on the Internet yet, so thatâ€™s something,â€? Glass said. Varun Ramanujam, a fourth-year in communication, said the rapperâ€™s music agrees with his name. â€œI donâ€™t know, it just kind of sounds unorganized,â€? Ramanujam said. â€œI donâ€™t really like it. But itâ€™s pretty cool that somebody from Westerville is actually on iTunes.â€? Glass offered some advice for young rappers aspiring to be successful in the business. â€œIf youâ€™re good then keep going, if youâ€™re not then stop. Thatâ€™s the basic thing, because hip-hop is so saturated with bad rappers, even some of the richest rappers are some of the worst,â€? Glass said.
The Midwest Fair Trade Fest began as a small gathering to celebrate World Fair Trade Day, which is May 11. The event has become a cultural experience aimed to educate people on sustainable living, which is a lifestyle aimed to reduce oneâ€™s use of Earthâ€™s natural resources. â€œOur very first event was basically a potluck,â€? said Connie De Jong, executive director of Global Gallery, a nonprofit in Columbus that sells fair trade and local green goods through its stores. â€œWe just decided we wanted to do something for our volunteers to celebrate World Fair Trade Day â€Ś and every year it evolves into a bigger celebration of culture and itâ€™s been, in a lot of ways, different every year.â€? The Fair Trade Fest is scheduled for Saturday starting at 10 a.m. at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center on campus at 2201 Fred Taylor Drive. The fest is in its 11th year. Fair trade refers to a movement in which producers in developing countries receive a fair price for products through trade. While it was once just a Global Gallery gathering, it has grown into a collaborative event with Students for Fair Trade at The Ohio State University. This group is a relatively new presence on campus, said Sara Stanger, a second-year in globalization studies and co-president of Students for Fair Trade. â€œOn campus, weâ€™re only in our third year as a student (organization), so weâ€™re still fairly new,â€? Stanger said. â€œSince we started, weâ€™ve been working with the Midwest Fair Trade Fest.â€? The Fair Trade Fest is scheduled to feature live entertainment, a marketplace devoted to selling fair trade products and food straight out of Global Galleryâ€™s kitchen. De Jong said the cuisine available at the event is something attendees should look forward to tasting. â€œWe have a really great menu this year â€” it seems like we keep developing more fun things to add,â€? De Jong said. â€œWeâ€™ll have bison momos, which are a Tibetan dumpling, homemade hummus (and) fresh organic strawberry spinach salad.â€? De Jong said there will also be choices available for less adventurous eaters, including a gourmet dish created from a classic sandwich. â€œWe have a three-cheese pasta we call â€˜Grandmaâ€™s Pasta,â€™â€? De Jong said. â€œWe have some really yummy gourmet peanut butter and jelly made with fair trade peanut butter â€Ś Itâ€™s really quite an abundance of yummy things to take in.â€? One of the main forms of entertainment slated to take place at the festival is a fair trade fashion show planned by the Students for Fair Trade. Amy Farrar, a second-year in hospitality management, co-president of the organization and a store manager at Global Gallery at OSU, said the show will be divided into three segments showcased throughout the day.

[ spotlight ] MTV Movie Awards still casual, cutting-edge show ARTS Columnist
If award shows were people, the Oscars would be the slightly snobbish and totally exclusive SHELBY LUM socialite. firstname.lastname@example.org MTV award shows would be the trendy young person who orders really specific drinks at Starbucks. The MTV award shows are notoriously more low-key than the rest. Winners take home the Golden Popcorn or Moonman at the MTV Movie Awards and MTV Video Music Awards, respectively. The movie awards also have a “Best Scared-As-S**t Performance” category. I don’t anticipate the members of the Academy to vote that into existence for the Oscars anytime soon.

In keeping up with its trendy reputation, the MTV Movie Awards must always have the funniest up-and-coming host. This year: Rebel Wilson. In addition to hosting the show, Wilson was nominated for Best Female Performance and Breakthrough Performance for her role in “Pitch Perfect” as Fat Amy. To MTV’s credit, lately it has found comedians on the brink of success, and for some, perhaps the very act of hosting the award show pushed them into success. When Aziz Ansari hosted the awards in 2010, MTV, as usual, released spoofed advertisements for the show. For Ansari’s year hosting the show one of those ads ran as “Who is Aziz Ansari?” because for many of us less trendy people, we had no idea, and unfortunately, those ads didn’t help clarify the matter. But it did update me on how funny he was going to be. Wilson seems to be in a similar position, although she’s more well-known than Ansari was when he hosted. After her role in “Bridesmaids,” the Australian actress and comedian began popping up everywhere. People kept referencing this Fat Amy person — whom I didn’t seem to know. Once
again, MTV has one-upped me on its knowledge of the next best thing. Recently, it was leaked that the “Pitch Perfect” cast might reunite at the MTV Movie Awards, and since then it has been confirmed that the cast (minus lead actress Anna Kendrick) will open the show. According to Huffington Post, “Pitch Perfect” director, Jason Moore, has created a musical number for the cast as battling a capella groups. Because no one can keep up with pop culture and the best new things like MTV, the performing artists, like the host, have recently shot to stardom. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, the masterminds behind “Thrift Shop,” are scheduled to perform at the MTV Movie Awards, as well as Selena Gomez, who will be singing her new single, “Come & Get It.” This year’s award show will likely have the usual shenanigans. Floor-length gowns aren’t mandatory, and E! News won’t be tearing apart who was the worst dressed, or at least not like it does with the Oscars or other award shows. Kristen Stewart might rock her Converse All Stars again, and tuxes aren’t required. The MTV Movie Awards is scheduled to air live Sunday at 9 p.m.
travel the Town A weekly spotlight on one of Columbus’ boroughs.
Upper Arlington not just family suburb, packed with several options for students to explore ROSE DAVIDSON Lantern reporter email@example.com Columbus is brimming with interesting neighborhoods beyond the borders of Ohio State. Each week, The Lantern will spotlight an area in or around Columbus. It’s known to many in Columbus as an affluent suburb with a great school system, but Upper Arlington is more than just a prime place to raise kids. It also has some pretty great places for college students to pass the time in the summer months, all in close proximity to OSU’s campus.
Shop Located at 1675 W. Lane Ave., The Shops on Lane Avenue plaza is just a short drive west of campus. Included in the list of stores are a few sophisticated clothing retailers for younger women, such as LOFT, New York & Company and White House Black Market. Also found in the retail strip is Nurtur the Salon, an Aveda-stocked spa that offers a range of beauty services, from haircuts to massage therapy. Another part of The Shops is a Whole Foods Market. Recently remodeled, the market is now a modern-day mecca for organic food enthusiasts. The aisles are stocked with every type of food imaginable, and on top of that, there are specially
staffed sections for the store’s meat, cheese and baked goods departments. The extensive amount of grocery items is impressive enough, but the store is also equipped with two areas to sit down and eat: one for eating items purchased from the pre-made food section and the other, The Social, for people wishing to sit down and order a freshly-made meal. Dine Just down the road from The Shops at 1315 W. Lane Ave. is Piada, a fast-casual dining establishment with several locations throughout the Columbus area. For a tasty Italian meal on the go, the pasta options at Piada are equivalent to Chipotle’s burritos. The concept is the same — upon arriving
at the counter, diners choose what type of dish they want and then go down the line to select ingredients and additions, such as side items or drinks. The meal prices are relatively close to those of Chipotle, ranging from $6.75 to $8.95 for a main dish. For something sweet to top it all off, there are a couple places nearby to find low-cost frozen treats. Cuzzins Yogurt, also in The Shops, is a do-it-yourself frozen yogurt stop with intriguing flavors that rotate constantly. Customers can choose exactly how much goes into each cup and which of the many toppings to put on, then pay per ounce based on these selections. Directly across the street at 1534 W. Lane Ave. is Graeter’s Ice Cream, a Cincinnati-based company specializing
in the old-fashioned French pot process of creating delicious and creamy dessert scoops. Explore With a handful of free entertainment options, the summer is a great time to be in Upper Arlington. For the past 19 years, the town has held its annual “Taste of Upper Arlington” event, which spotlights dishes from food vendors throughout the community. Last year’s event, which is sure to be similar to this summer’s fest, was held in August and offered free admission, though food samples were sold for $2 to $3.

[ spotlight ] C-Bus to bring in remnants of childhood with toy show LAUREN WEITZ Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org When James Ford started buying and selling toys right out of high school, some people thought it was strange. “I was the guy buying everybody’s toys, and they thought it was crazy like, ‘Why are you buying this stuff?’” Ford said. “I was like, ‘You’ll see.’” More than 10 years later, Ford organizes and operates the biggest toy show in Ohio. The ninth annual Columbus Toy and Collectible Show is scheduled for Sunday at Veterans Memorial and draws in 2,500-3,000 guests in one day, Ford said. Ford is the owner and operator of CTS Promotions, which puts on the annual Columbus Toy and Collectible Show and organizes and promotes other toy shows in different parts of the U.S. This year, Ford said there are more than 120 vendors signed up to sell, with some traveling from Florida and New York for the show.
Ford started the Columbus Toy and Collectible Show in 2003 after the previous operator stopped the show. “We went a few years without a toy show and nobody was bringing one to Columbus,” Ford said. “I didn’t know what I was doing, and I created a show, and the first show I had 150 tables to sell and ended up selling 310. Ever since my show has just rocked.” Since Ford’s first toy show in 2003, the demographic of visitors has shifted. “When I first started, my demographic was 18- to 35-year-old guys that live with their mom in the basement. I love those guys. They got money,” Ford said. “But I’ve been making the show more family-oriented because the moms and dads that grew up in the ‘70s and ‘80s, now they want their kids to see what they collected.” Toys sold at show range from collectibles from the 1950s to present toy lines, Ford said. “The most popular lines we sell are what I call the Big Four: Star Wars toys, Transformers, G.I. Joe and Hot Wheels,” Ford said. “When you get to the girls, that’s a totally different thing. We are looking at vintage Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Ponys and Barbies.”
Due to Disney’s buying of George Lucas’ Lucasfilm in October, Star Wars toys are among the most popular right now, Ford said. “Now that Disney’s bought the new rights to the film, Star Wars toys are booming right now,” Ford said. “It doesn’t matter what it is, Star Wars toys are where it is.” The price range of the toys at the show varies greatly, Ford said. “It could be $1 to $1,000,” Ford said. “There are ‘cheapy’ toys for kids, but for that die-hard collector there are $1,000 toys there.” Even though some of the toys are expensive, Ford said the mint condition collectibles are the most sought-after toys. “These young kids want to collect the older stuff, it’s never going to lose its value. You’ve got to think, 25 percent of vintage toys are where? In a landfill or were played with,” Ford said. “So the mint stuff is really worth a lot of money.” Ford said that the Columbus Toy and Collectible Show offers a lot more variety than comic book conventions.

Lindsay Lohan sits in court for her probation update hearing at the Airport Courthouse, Jan. 17 in Los Angeles.
Lindsay Lohan on “Late Show with David Letterman” On Tuesday night, Lindsay Lohan finally made a public appearance that didn’t involve her being in a courtroom. Letterman’s interview with Lohan on “Late Show with David Letterman” was extremely entertaining yet uncomfortable to witness at the same time. He fired off a round of questions and jokes relating to her obvious struggles with drugs and alcohol, but Lohan wasn’t afraid to make light of her situation either, at one point taking a drink from Letterman’s mug saying “I thought this was going to be vodka.”
“Aren’t you supposed to be in rehab?” he asked, evoking laughter from the studio audience. Lohan said she is set to check into rehab on May 2, describing her previous experiences there as a “blessing.” Country music award winners Luke Bryan took home the coveted Entertainer of the Year award at the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday. Bryan also co-hosted the event with Blake Shelton. Miranda Lambert took home three awards, more than any other artist, including Female Vocalist of the Year, Single Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Taylor Swift was nominated in four categories this year, and apparently it was a surprise that she didn’t win any of them. I think her time has passed, and her new album, “Red,” was not worthy of any awards. Newcomer Hunter Hayes was also nominated for four different awards and like Swift, he did not come home with any.
Remembering Annette Funicello After battling multiple sclerosis for more than 25 years, one of Disney’s original “Mouseketeers” died Monday at age 70. Known by many to be America’s girl next door, Annette Funicello was best known for her role on the “Mickey Mouse Club” and her multiple beach party films throughout the 1960s. My generation however, was not as familiar with Funicello as those before us. The only time I can remember seeing her was in an episode of “Full House” when I was probably in middle school. After reading several articles about Funicello’s life, however, it was clear that she was loved. “Annette was well known for being as beautiful inside as she was on the outside, and she faced her physical challenges with dignity, bravery and grace,” said Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, following the news of her death. “All of us at Disney join with family, friends and fans around the world in celebrating her extraordinary life.”
