The final week leading up to the election hasn’t gone exactly as planned. President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney both had to cancel campaign stops this week due to Superstorm Sandy, losing the opportunity to potentially convince just a few more voters in key swing states. Obama canceled events planned for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, including events in Ohio. According to an Obama for America release, Obama’s Wednesday stops were canceled so he could remain in Washington, D.C., to monitor the storm’s progress. Vice President Joe Biden was scheduled to make appearances in Wooster, Ohio, and Gambier, Ohio, Tuesday as well as Scranton, Pa., Thursday, and all three events were canceled by the Obama campaign Monday.

where he addressed a crowd on recovery efforts. “We are here for you,” Obama told the New Jersey crowd. “We will follow up to make sure you get the help you need until you rebuild.” As the storm passes, many have returned their thoughts to the election. Ohio State political science professor Paul Beck said, “we have not had a catastrophe of this size this close to the election, at least in recent memory,” but doesn’t think it will change the outcome of the election or have much influence on voter turnout. “I think we probably have enough time,” said Beck in a Wednesday interview. With backup generators and relief efforts, Beck said he thinks the polls should be up and running by Tuesday, and that the damage shouldn’t keep determined voters away. Beck said the East Coast states most affected by the storm normally

A tattered flag flies above the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and United States Coast Guard building in New York City’s Battery Park on Wednesday. The events were canceled “to ensure that all local law enforcement and emergency management resources can stay focused on ensuring the safety of people who might be impacted by the storm,” according to a campaign release.

Wednesday Obama took a trip to New Jersey where he flew over the shoreline to access damage from the superstorm with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Following his tour, Obama held a press conference

Tuition could vary based on major in future

Ohio State tuition and fees


Florida students who major in art might soon start paying more in tuition than students who study mathematics, and Ohio State is paying attention to the proposal. The recommendation to vary tuition depending on major comes from a state task force created by Florida Gov. Rick Scott. If approved by the State University System of Florida Board of Governors, Florida public universities could make majors in science, technology, engineering and math, also known as STEM majors, more affordable than arts and humanities majors. The purpose would be to help Florida’s job market by encouraging more students to major in degrees the state’s economy needs most. The recommendations propose freezing tuition for STEM majors for the next three years. Majors with lower job prospects in the state, like those in the arts and humanities, would cost more in order to make up the difference. “As with most issues facing institutions of higher education across the nation, we are following with interest the approach that is seemingly growing in popularity across the U.S. that is, using cost of education as a means of engineering student interest in certain majors or areas of study,” said Wayne Carlson, OSU vice provost of undergraduate studies and dean of undergraduate education. Some opponents of the measure propose just the opposite of the task force’s preliminary recommendations, Carlson said, and suggest charging “engineers more than art students, because their potential income is greater,” But Carlson said he does not agree with ending the one-size-fits-all approach to tuition. “I personally see that there is some merit in the use of tuition to motivate certain majors, such as

source: reporting those in STEM fields,” he said. “I’m not personally in favor of the use of differential tuition approaches.” A better idea would be to prepare students from kindergarten and up to succeed in those majors “rather than using financial incentives”, Carlson said. Some students, such as Samantha Feck, a fourth-year in communication, do not support the idea to vary tuition based on degree. “That’s not really fair, especially if you switch majors,” she said. “It’s not fair to say one major is worth more than another.” However, some students such as Shawn Long, a first-year in science and technology exploration, see the benefits from it. “It’s a good idea to me,” he said, but added that he can see the unfairness in raising prices on non-STEM majors. At OSU, the Board of Trustees are the ones who decide on issues related to tuition and fees for students. There is “no similar line of thinking at this point,” Carlson said. “Although our tuition rate across all

undergraduate majors is the same, some majors have certain program fees that reflect the cost of teaching in those majors. “There are also course and lab fees, for some courses that have specific material requirements that exceed others. This results in a differential cost for some majors, although in no case is it a dramatic difference.” OSU students from Ohio paid $10,037 in tuition and fees for the 2012-2013 academic year, with out-of-state students paying $25,445, according to an OSU website. Across the nation, the average cost of tuition and fees increased by 4.8 percent to $8,655 in 2012-13 from $8,256 in 2011-12 for in-state students at public four-year colleges and universities, according to a report from College Board. The average cost of tuition and fees also increased for out-of-state students by 4.2 percent to $21,706 in 2012-13 from $20,823 in 2011-12, according to the report.

This is the final story of an 11-article series leading up to the Nov. 6 presidential election that will break down the issues dominating political debates. Check back Tuesday for our election coverage. Alam Payind, director of Ohio State’s Middle East Studies Center, said what is unfolding in the Middle East is very complicated. “There’s always something going on in the Middle East,” Payind said. “A simplistic approach

from outside isn’t doing justice to the complicated issues in the Middle East.” Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, however, said during the third presidential debate that his strategy concerning the Middle East is “pretty straightforward.” “To go after the bad guys, to make sure we do our very best to interrupt them,” he said Oct. 22. “To kill them, to take them out of the picture.” Romney did say that his strategy was also a little broader, but during the debate, President Barack Obama found some major discrepancies with the way Romney operates. “What we need to do with respect to the Middle East is strong, steady leadership, not wrong and

reckless leadership that is all over the map. And unfortunately, that’s the kind of opinions that (Romney has) offered throughout this campaign, and it is not a recipe for American strength,” Obama said during the Oct. 22 debate. “My first job as commander-in-chief … is to keep the American people safe. And that’s what we’ve done over the last four years.” The Tunisian president of 23 years, Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, fled his country in January 2011 after a month of civilian protests. About a month later, former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak fled Cairo. Mubarak, who died in June, had ruled Egypt for about 30 years.

campus OSU students try to infuse youth into an aging village thomas doohan Lantern reporter City and regional planning students will travel to Enon, Ohio, to get feedback on a development plan valued at $70,000 to $90,000 they are creating for the village. On Nov. 15, students in lecturer Kimberly Burton’s city and regional planning studio class will carpool to the village in Western Ohio and speak with residents about the plan. “They are working on a comprehensive 15-year plan going forward. They had one in 1995 and obviously they need another one,” said Brendan McIntyre, a fourth-year in city and regional planning who is in the studio class. Enon, situated between Dayton and Springfield, Ohio, has an aging community. Jerry Crane, a councilman and former mayor of the village, said young people rarely come to Enon because of the lack of jobs or entertainment for them. “In 2027, if that trend doesn’t change, we’ll end up a retirement community,” Crane said. The best way to remedy that is to attract young people to the community, Crane said. Burton’s studio is helping make that happen. Burton said students are looking at all the services the government might provide its people in Enon and are making suggestions on how

Storm from 1A vote Democratic by enough of a margin that even if some voters chose not to or were unable to get to the polls, Obama would still win in states like New Jersey and New York. The same, he said, could be expected of Republican-leaning West Virginia that saw heavy snowfall this week. However, Beck said Virginia, the only swing state in immediate danger of heavy storm damage, could be affected by the storm. “Generally it is people who have lesser means, lesser income, lesser wealth … they are fixated on how they are going to get themselves out of this particular disaster rather than how they’re going to vote on Tuesday,” Beck said. Beck said because of the storm, lower-income voters who are known for being more likely to vote Democratic might be put off by the storm or find themselves unable to make it to the polls Tuesday. OSU associate professor of geography Jay Hobgood said that in some areas most affected by the storm, polling locations might have to be moved at the last minute. “I know some towns on the coast of New Jersey are still flooded and they’re rescuing people. Those towns don’t have any electricity,” Hobgood said. “At this point they don’t know if the polling places are underwater.” Romney canceled events Monday as well but returned to Dayton Tuesday for an event originally scheduled to be a campaign rally. In light of the storm however, it was made instead into a disaster relief effort. Obama had to cancel several campaign events in order to attend to the relief efforts, but Beck said if all goes well in recovery during the days leading up to the election, it could work in his favor. However, if efforts are criticized the way they were following Hurricane Katrina, a 2005 Gulf Coast storm that killed nearly 2,000 people, Obama


the decision-makers in the community might use the services to best attract young people. The public meetings, like the one the students will attend on Nov. 15, are important because they give the community an opportunity to tell the students their thoughts on the future of Enon. “We don’t write them in a vacuum,” Burton said. “We get everybody, from little kids, to middle-aged people, to older people, to give us their input so we make sure it is a plan that fits them.” Enon residents want the village to remain a village as young people move in, McIntyre said. The studio class’ plan reflects that public desire in its natural environment section, which makes room for farming and green space. “One of the things the natural environment section is looking at doing is kind of establishing an agricultural trust … which is annexing this farmland that surrounds Enon,” McIntyre said. Annexing the land and keeping it as farmland will prevent the village from being developed into something else. Students in Burton’s studio have also researched different grants and tax incentives that can help finance the development of the village. Burton said the total value of her studio’s written outline ranged between $70,000 and $90,000. “They’re getting some free work out (of) us,” Burton said with a smile. The students’ free work does not go unappreciated in Enon, either.

could see some backlash the same way former President George W. Bush did when people deemed FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) efforts to be ineffective. “If the handling of that (Superstorm Sandy) by FEMA and by the federal government is not perceived to be effective, then it could be returned as negative for the president,” Beck said. Hobgood said as commander-in-chief, Obama has a duty to focus his attention on protecting citizens throughout the superstorm and recovery. “The president sort of has to make the relief efforts his primary focus, that’s his job, and it looks like he’s not doing his job if he doesn’t do that,” he said. “The president has to walk a very fine line. He can’t look like he’s more interested in getting elected than doing this job.” Without the responsibility of handling a natural disaster on a federal level, Romney has been able to stay visible in swing states, however, Beck said the situation puts Romney in a bind. “It probably doesn’t look good for him to be out there bashing President Obama as he has been out on the campaign while President Obama has been handling this disaster,” he said. Hobgood said while there isn’t anything wrong with him continuing to campaign, Romney needs to be “sympathetic to the people who were affected by the storms.” “People want to feel that you care about them,” he said. However, Beck said campaigning shouldn’t be called off completely. “I think it should continue, there’s no question on that,” he said, and added that unless it is interfering with relief efforts, it is important to the democratic process. The Romney campaign has received some backlash for not canceling former campaign rallies all together, but some students don’t think that’s necessary.

One of the things the natural environment section is looking at doing is kind of establishing an agricultural trust. Brendan McIntyre fourth-year in city and reginal planning

Crane added the students’ contributions are important because “we are getting a new perspective of living from seniors in college.” The students are rewarded with appreciation in Enon, but McIntyre said city and regional planning students are required to take two studio classes in order to graduate with the degree. However, in the case of this studio class, there were other incentives for the students. As part of the class’ outreach, they had a booth at Enon’s annual Apple Butter Festival Oct. 13 and 14. Devin Carothers, a fourth-year in city and regional planning, purchased some apple butter during the festival. “I bought two jars of it,” Carothers said. “I’ve almost killed all of it.”

“I honestly really don’t think they should have to suspend their campaign just because of a natural disaster. Maybe temporarily, but only for a few days,” said Sam Frye, a first-year in political science and history. Other students agreed but said the candidates needed to be sensitive about the situation. “I don’t necessarily think that the campaigning should be suspended because of the storm recovery, but I definitely think the candidates have to be more sensitive to the fact that for a lot of people on the East Coast, the election is far from the most important thing that they have to be worried about at the moment,” said Josh Colley, a first-year in chemistry. Romney is scheduled to make an appearance with vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan in West Chester, Ohio, on Friday after returning to a full day of campaigning on Wednesday, when Romney made a stop in Tampa Bay, Fla. and Ryan a stop in Eau Claire, Wis. While Obama has canceled several Ohio events, the state hasn’t been forgotten in the storm. The Obama campaign scheduled an event in Central Ohio Friday morning at the Franklin County fairgrounds in Hilliard, Ohio. Gallup polling was suspended as of Monday due to the storm, but according to data from the most recent seven-day rolling Gallup poll, Obama and Romney were tied at 48 percent for registered voters, but Romney leads 51 percent to Obama’s 46 percent in likely voters. Hobgood said it will be a “week or two before things start to get significantly better” in areas that weren’t hit hard by the storm. However, areas that were severely damaged, such as parts of the New Jersey shoreline, might not be fully recovered for “months if not years.” Joel Thomas and Shay Trotter contributed to this article.

Middle East from 1A Later that year, Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi was overthrown after leading Libya for about four decades. In October 2011, he was violently killed, according to multiple reports. But the revolutions that have come to be known as the Arab Spring are not over. “The turmoil continues in Syria,� Payind said. In Aug. 2011, Obama said the president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, had to go. The Syrian people continue to demonstrate against al-Assad’s regime, which he inherited from his father in 2000. “What we’re seeing taking place in Syria is heartbreaking, and that’s why we are going to do everything we can to make sure that we are helping the opposition,� Obama said during the third presidential debate. “I am confident that (al-)Assad’s days are numbered.� Romney said during the debate that there are four key ways to help the Middle East: better education, more economic development, gender equality and the rule of law. The U.S. has not left these revolutions that have come to be known as the Arab Spring untouched. America’s push for democracy in Middle Eastern countries has been highlighted in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that killed about 3,000 civilians in New York City, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania. Former President George W. Bush made the decision to invade Afghanistan in October 2001 in an effort to disband al-Qaida, the terrorist organization responsible for the attacks, and remove the Taliban regime. Payind said about 60,000 American troops still remain in Afghanistan. Obama plans to end the Afghan war and gradually remove all troops by 2014. “We’re now able to transition out of Afghanistan in a responsible way, making sure that Afghans take responsibility for their own security,� Obama said in the Oct. 22 debate. “And that allows us also to rebuild alliances and make friends around the world to combat future threats.� Then in 2003, America attacked Iraq and pursued Saddam Hussein, who was president from 1979 to April 2003. The last troops were removed in December. “We ended the war in Iraq, refocused our attention on those who actually killed us on 9/11,� Obama said. “As a consequence, al-Qaida’s core leadership has been decimated.� In May 2011, Obama announced that U.S. forces had found and killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, the man responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks. During the third presidential debate, Romney congratulated Obama for killing bin Laden, but said “we can’t kill our way out of this mess.� “We’re going to have to put in place a very comprehensive and robust strategy to help the world of Islam and other parts of the world, reject this radical violent extremism,� he said. Obama said during the debate that five things need to happen in the Middle East: America’s counterterrorism goals need to be supported, countries need to stand by America’s interest in Israel, America needs to protect religious minorities and women, economic capabilities need to be developed and America can’t continue nation building in Middle Eastern countries. The Obama administration is also working to force Iran to abandon its nuclear enrichment. Obama said during the debate that Iran is the “state sponsor of terrorism,� sanctions have been imposed in the region aiming to marginalize Iran. “It is crippling their economy. Their currency has dropped 80 percent,� he said. “Their oil production has plunged to the lowest level since they were fighting a war with Iraq 20 years ago.� Payind said Iran’s economy is in shambles politically and economically. “The sanctions are doing their job,� he said. “The common men, women and children are suffering

from all these economic hardships ‌ but the question is whether it will prevent Iran from furthering the nuclear ambitions or not.â€? Romney said he would’ve put the sanctions in place sooner and he would tighten them. Military action should be a last resort. “We need to increase pressure time and time again on Iran because anything other than a solution to this, which stops this nuclear folly of theirs, is unacceptable to America,â€? he said.

A simplistic approach from outside isn’t doing justice to the complicated issues in the Middle East. Alam Payind director of Ohio State’s Middle East Studies Center

America wants Pakistan to cooperate with its foreign policy, Payind said, but it has a very difficult relationship with the country that often serves as a safe haven for members of al-Qaida and the Taliban. “Pakistan is a nuclear power, so there is not much the U.S. can do,� Payind said. “The collapse of the Pakistani government is a big, huge danger.� And behind their borders, two groups of the Taliban, Afghani and Pakistani, are surviving — although in the minority — with different agendas, but neither want foreign influence in their countries, Payind said. Because of Obama’s position as incumbent, Payind said he has access to briefings and contacts with leaders, diplomats and military personnel that Romney does not. “That is the reality on the ground,� he said. “The sitting president has advantage of having access to all of this information.� Kyle Strickland, a fourth-year in political science and minority affairs coordinator for OSU’s College Democrats , said Romney’s inexperience shows in his lack of opposition to Obama’s policies. “Quite frankly, Gov. Romney doesn’t have foreign policy experience,� Strickland said. “That’s something I think Gov. Romney and Republicans realize, which is why they had to pretty much hug every position of President Obama.� Payind said he and his students noticed the same thing. “If one looks at the last debate between Obama and Romney, Romney almost endorsed the foreign policies that Obama has made,� he said. “My students who watched the debate had the same sort of impression that I had.� According to Romney’s website, his administration would support the groups and individuals seeking democratic values and institutions in the Middle East, and make sure “the Arab Spring does not become an Arab Winter.� Niraj Antani, communications director for the OSU College Republicans , said America’s role in the world is to ensure that people seeking liberty gain it. “I think Gov. Romney will be a president who understands that we have to stand up for these people because no one else will,� he said. Payind said only time will tell what difference the future president will make in the Middle East, and if he’ll stick by his word. Regardless of what unfolds, Obama said America’s presence is necessary. “America remains the one indispensable nation,� he said. “And the world needs a strong America.� Kristen Mitchell contributed to this article.

campus Sherrod Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Students have a lot at stakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hannah brokenshire Lantern reporter With Election Day less than a week away, Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter visited Ohio State students to emphasize the importance of voting and the contrast between candidates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making a lot of big decisions in this election for the future â&#x20AC;Ś and students are going to live that future,â&#x20AC;? said Liz Brown, deputy executive director of the Ohio Democratic Party. Rising college tuition and student loan rates are two issues she believes will have an impact in this election. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be on your feet once you graduate is a real present-day concern, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also about what kind of country are you going to graduate into, what kind of state?â&#x20AC;? Liz Brown said. Her father is running for re-election against Republican U.S. senatorial candidate Josh Mandel. Liz Brown spoke as a component of the Undergraduate Student Government speaker series on Oct. 31, which also hosted Mandel a week ago. Taylor Stepp, Undergraduate Student Government president, said Sherrod Brown was invited to speak but was unable to attend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite striking that the senator is so scared of speaking to students that he sends his daughter instead,â&#x20AC;? said Niraj Antani, communications director for College Republicans. The Columbus Dispatch announced its endorsement of Sherrod Brown for Senate Tuesday, joining The Plain Dealer and the Cincinnati Enquirer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do think it (the endorsement) speaks to the fact that the contrast is so clear in this race,â&#x20AC;? Liz Brown said in an interview with The Lantern. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at a real crossroads in this country.â&#x20AC;? Despite support from three major Ohio newspapers, Antani does not think the announcement will affect Mandelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anyone who makes a vote off of a newspaper endorsement,â&#x20AC;? Antani said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sherrod Brown has been in office for 30 years and Josh (Mandel) is a young guy, a fresh face, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the country and Ohio needs.â&#x20AC;? When Sherrod Brown spoke at the Oct. 9 rally on the Oval before President Barack Obama, he told students, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you live in Ohio you get to decide who the next president of the United States is.â&#x20AC;? And Ohioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prominence as a swing-state has students realizing the importance of their vote. Jacquelyn Daugherty, a third-year in chemical engineering, plans to vote at the Ohio Union polling station on Nov. 6. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Voting this year actually, truly counts,â&#x20AC;? Daugherty said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to determine huge decisions about our futures.â&#x20AC;? Though Daugherty has already made the decision to vote, she urges undecided students to get informed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter which party youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re for, the candidates put in a lot of time and effort to run and five minutes of your time to get informed and can benefit the country,â&#x20AC;? Daugherty said. Stepp said the purpose of the speaker series is to make sure students are best prepared to cast their ballot next week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone we can get (to speak) that can effectively educate voters is beneficial,â&#x20AC;? Stepp said. Antani said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe Liz Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit will make an impact on studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; voting decision.

Antani said. Drew Calabro, government relations deputy director for USG, said Liz Brown provides a new perspective for students because â&#x20AC;&#x153;she is not a political talking head, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not running for election, her father is.â&#x20AC;?

When Geoff Carlston first arrived on Ohio State’s campus in 2008 as the women’s volleyball coach, few questioned his success or experience in volleyball. What most people don’t know is how Carlston ended up coaching volleyball. On most occasions, when people want something, they go after it. For Carlston it was the exact opposite, as volleyball kept finding him. Even though Carlston coached a junior Olympic team at the age of 21, he had no intention of becoming a volleyball coach. “I was 21, coaching at that early age and really had a great time with it,” Carlston said. “And really, I didn’t think a lot about it. After I graduated, I rode my motorcycle around the country and was a ski bum. I was in the Peace Corps, and ended up with a bunch of traveling, and volleyball just kept finding me even when I was in there.” In 1993, Carlston graduated from the University of Minnesota with an undergraduate degree in speech communication but quickly found himself in school a second time, cementing his path to becoming a volleyball coach. “Mike Hebert was at the University of Minnesota, and he had been a Peace Corps volunteer and asked me to come be his volunteer,” Carlston said. “So I was a volunteer assistant there when I was getting my master’s at Minnesota.”

During Carlston’s two seasons as a student assistant coach, the Gophers compiled a 27-9 record and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Carlston went from collecting gold and bronze medals in Holland to being named the Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year four times at Ohio University and, after five years at Ohio, he came back to the Big Ten. “I was excited because you look up on the wall in the gym and you see Michigan State, Michigan, Minnesota and Purdue,” Carlston said. “I grew up in the Big Ten, so first of all it was cool to be a part of this. The coaches that I looked up to forever such as Mike Hebert … to be coaching against them and to be coaching in the same conference was pretty cool.” After finishing with a 12-20 overall record with a 3-17 mark in the Big Ten in his first full season at OSU, Carlston revitalized the team by winning 25 games the very next season and brought the team back to the NCAA Tournament. In the next two seasons, the Buckeyes won 20-plus games and were invited to two more NCAA Tournament appearances. The Buckeyes are ranked No. 15 this year, with a 17-7 overall record. “I’m really proud of how far we have come when we were 3-17,” Carlston said. In his 12 years as a volleyball coach, Carlston has received many accolades, including Coach of the Year. But he said

Pat Brennan Sports editor Ohio State women’s soccer’s season will continue after a big day on and off the pitch. On the field, the No. 21-ranked Buckeyes beat Nebraska, 1-0, in a Big Ten Tournament opening-round match Wednesday to advance to the next round of competition. Off the field, five OSU players received conference honors, the Big Ten announced. OSU, the Big Ten Tournament’s No. 2-seed, got the eventual game-winner from sophomore midfielder Ellyn Gruber just before halftime. Buckeyes freshman goalkeeper Jillian McVicker made one save in the game to help OSU advance. Prior to the game, the Big Ten Conference announced that five OSU players had received honors, including record-setting senior forward Tiffany Cameron. Cameron, along with junior midfielder Danica Wu, was named a first-team All-Big Ten selection to add to her recent success. On Monday, Cameron was named Big Ten Player of the Week for the second consecutive week after scoring twice in a 5-0 win against Indiana to become OSU’s all-time leading goal scorer. After entering the match against the

Hoosiers tied with former Buckeyes Lisa Collison and Lara Dickenmann for the all-time goals lead with 35, Cameron grabbed the record herself with two goals in the team’s regular season finale. Wu was a second team All-Big Ten selection last season and earned the firstteam honor despite missing four games on international duty with Canada’s U-20 team. OSU senior midfielder/forward Kendyl Reed, McVicker and junior goalkeeper Rachel Middleman were also honored by the conference, according to a Wednesday OSU release. Reed was tabbed a second team All-Big Ten selection after posting one assist in 18 starts for the Buckeyes while McVicker was named to the Big Ten’s All-Freshman Team after allowing just four goals in almost 734 minutes in goal this season. Middleman was the Buckeyes’ sportsmanship honoree. Members of OSU women’s soccer were not immediately made available for The Lantern’s Wednesday request for comment. OSU (14-4-1) will continue Big Ten Conference play Friday against either No. 3-seeded Michigan or No. 6-seeded Wisconsin. Kickoff for the tournament’s semifinal-round game is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. in Bloomington, Ind.

OSU junior Meredith Wagner (bib No. 660) runs during the Big Ten Cross Country Championships on Oct. 28 in East Lansing, Mich. OSU finished 6th out of 12 teams and Wagner finished with a time of 20:41.

Ohio State women’s cross-country junior Meredith Wagner returned this season after missing her sophomore year due to injury and is having her best season yet . After sitting out last season, Wagner said she is happy to be back with her team and the Buckeyes’ new coach, Khadevis Robinson . “I was really excited to be back because cross-country is my favorite,” Wagner said. “It was good to have new girls and everyone back.” The Sylvania, Ohio, native earned All-Big Ten honors this week after finishing 12th at the Big Ten Cross Country Championships with a 6-kilometer time of 20:41 in East Lansing, Mich., on Sunday. “I was happy but I wanted to be in the top 10,” Wagner said. “I didn’t exactly reach my goal, but I was still happy.” Robinson credited Wagner’s honors to her dedication and focus from practice to meets. “She has been running extremely well all year. She has been dedicated and she has been doing the small things as far as taking care of her body,” Robinson said. “She has focused on her workouts and I think she can run faster and better.”

Sophomore teammate Michelle Thomas said Wagner deserved the honors she received this week because of her dedication to the sport. “Meredith is such a good runner and a very strong person,” Thomas said. “She works really hard and she keeps her goals in her mind when she is training. She always goes 110 percent at practice and gives it everything she has in order to achieve her goals.” Even though Wagner placed 12th on Sunday, Robinson said he projected the junior to make it into the top 10. “We really thought she would make it to the top 10 but that heel really got to her,” Robinson said. “She was pretty much in the top-10 spot the whole length of the last 40 or 50 meters.” Besides her All-Big Ten performance this week, the junior also had a personalbest 6-kilometer time of 20:35 earlier in the season at the Wisconsin Adidas Invitational on Oct. 12. Wagner attributed her personal-best time to being in shape and listening to her coach. “My coach said I could do it,” Wagner said. “I didn’t think I could at first but once I did, it proved that I am in shape and that I can do it.” Wagner and the Scarlet and Gray are set to race at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional on Nov. 9 in Madison, Wis.


sports Carlston from 5A the satisfaction he gets from his job means more to him than any awards he receives. “I love (volleyball) because … you never know what exactly you’re going to get, which can be stressful on some days, but I love the variety,” Carlston said. “You get to wear a lot of different hats. I mean one day you have to be tough — you have to be the mom, you have to be the dad, you have to be the counselor because you’re dealing with 15 young ladies’ lives.” Senior outside hitter Emily Danks, senior middle blocker Mariah Booth and senior setter Amanda Peterson, who are part of his first recruiting class at OSU, have expressed that Carlston is more than just their coach. He was everything they needed him to be, and then some. “Geoff has influenced me in so many facets of my life,” Danks said. “Throughout my time in this program, I’ve learned things far beyond the realm of serving and blocking. He certainly helped me develop my game, but more importantly, he continuously pushed me out of my comfort zone to develop into a stronger, more confident leader.” One of Peterson’s fondest memories of Carlston happened off the court, during a trip to Hawaii, when the coach encouraged his players to be adventurous. “One of my favorite memories is when we played in last year’s preseason in Hawaii. Geoff let us jump off the cliffs into the ocean,” Peterson said. “I’m guessing that most coaches would instead stifle his players for fear that they would get hurt, but Geoff encourages us to conquer new experiences.” Booth said her favorite memory of her coach was during a preseason retreat, where she shared simple, yet meaningful moments with him. “He and I sat on the couch and played puzzle games before dinner,” Booth said. In every sport, athletes come and go. Carlston said he can’t believe that his seniors, whom he handpicked, are all grown up and will soon graduate and move on to bigger things in life. “The senior class has really allowed me to remember when they were freshman. It seems like 100 years ago,” Carlston said. “They’ve come a long way; we’ve come a long way as a staff and as a program.” Carlston said knowing the impact he’s having on his young players is the best thing about being a coach. “A lot of times, two to three years down the road when they will come back or you’ll get a letter, or you’ll get a parent come up to you and say … just say some amazing things,” Carlston said. “How you have impacted their daughter, or

OSU women’s volleyball coach Geoff Carlston (middle-right) instructs his team during an Aug. 29 practice at St. John Arena. the players come back and say you did this for me and I really appreciate it.” Carlston said being a coach is not just about the numbers. “Like any teacher, (statistics) are the things that sustain you because you never really know at times,” Carlston said. “You’re just in it, you’re competing all the time and you’re trying to push them to be better than what they even think they can be. When they come back and say, ‘Hey, you really made a difference,’ it just reminds you why you do it.”

The day is coming when Danks, Booth and Peterson will hang their jerseys up, and there will be certain things they will miss about having Carlston as their coach. “I think what I’ll miss the most about Geoff is how he always keeps us on our toes,” Danks said. “Whether it’s the drills we do in practice, new gear or surprise days off, he always finds a way to mix things up and keep it interesting and fun.” Carlston doesn’t know how long he will coach at OSU, or what his future holds.

“I mean winning a national championship would be great, and that is always our goal, but ultimately that’s not the lasting stuff, it’s the impact you had on your players,” Carlston said. “So I’m hoping as kids leave our program and look back they say that Geoff really did make a difference in my life. That’s important to me, I’m not going to lie and say it’s not because it is.” Danks said Geoff’s favorite saying is “carpe diem,” which is Latin for “seize the day.” “He lives by that every day,” Danks said, “and encourages us to do the same.”

OSU junior guard aaron Craft (left) and sophomore guard Shannon Scott (right) dribble and direct the offense during an Oct. 30 exhibition game against Walsh at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 83-71.

Scott-Craft backcourt combo in the works eVaN SPeYeR Senior Lantern reporter Coach Thad Matta explored a wide array of personnel groupings in Ohio Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhibition win against Walsh on Tuesday, in hopes of finding a reliable rotation for the regular season. One pairing he said stood out was the guard tandem of junior Aaron Craft and sophomore Shannon Scott. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like that combination out there,â&#x20AC;? Matta said. Craft, one of three returning starters for the No. 4 Buckeyes, has one year of starting experience to his name at OSU. As a starter, the junior averaged 4.6 assists last season, third-best in the Big Ten. When Matta inserted Scott alongside Craft, however, it was Scott who assumed primary ballhandling duties. Craft, who earned preseason All-Big Ten recognition, said he felt comfortable playing off-ball alongside Scott. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m handling the ball or Shannon is,â&#x20AC;? Craft said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not too much changes. With the offense we run, a lot of guys are interchangeable.â&#x20AC;? Craft was still able to make an impact with Scott on the ďŹ&#x201A;oor. Many times Scott found Craft toward the top of the key, allowing the junior guard to facilitate the offense through screen-and-rolls. Craft ďŹ nished the game with a team-high six assists, while Scott chipped in with two more . Junior forward Deshaun Thomas scored a

game-high 25 points and was the beneďŹ ciary of a Craft assist on his ďŹ rst basket of the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Great point guards like Craft and Shannon can get us those scores,â&#x20AC;? Thomas said. Former Buckeyes guard David Lighty was in attendance for the game, and told The Lantern that he too enjoyed watching the back court combination of Craft and sophomore guard Shannon Scott. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice tempo and I like fast-paced,â&#x20AC;? Lighty said. Scott was a highly-ranked recruit in 2011 coming out of Milton High School in Alpharetta, Ga., but was mostly ineffective during his debut season in Columbus. He averaged 1.2 points per game as a freshman while shooting 28 percent from the ďŹ&#x201A;oor . Matta said Scott has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;really goodâ&#x20AC;? in practice lately, and he showed signs of improvement against Walsh. The sophomore scored six points on 3-of-6 shooting, including a contested pull-up jumper which indicated that his jump shot might be coming along. Matta also said that having two point guards on the ďŹ&#x201A;oor will allow them to apply pressure on defense, which Craft believes will translate into easy transition scores. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully (we can) get out and run a little bit,â&#x20AC;? Craft said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(If we) make some good decisions in transition, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always tough to guard.â&#x20AC;? OSU is scheduled to play in an additional closeddoor exhibition game , before ofďŹ cially opening the 2012-13 season in the Carrier Classic on the USS Yorktown in Charleston, S.C., against Marquette on Nov. 9. Pat Brennan contributed to this story.

Ohio State football continued its scheduling ďŹ&#x201A;urry, locking up its fourth home-and-home series in less than a month by securing contests against Boston College for 2020 and 2021 on Wednesday. The Buckeyes will host the Eagles at Ohio Stadium on Sept. 19, 2020, before traveling to Chestnut Hill, Mass., on Sept. 18, 2021. OSU athletic director Gene Smith called BC â&#x20AC;&#x153;a ďŹ ne program from an outstanding conference.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This gives Ohio State fans a chance to watch their Buckeyes in back-to-back games against PaciďŹ c 12 and (Atlantic Coast Conference) schools,â&#x20AC;? Smith said in a released statement. BC athletic director Brad Bates said the matchups against OSU serve as a way for the Eagles to gauge themselves against one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be a great opportunity for our team to measure itself against one of the premier programs in college football,â&#x20AC;? Bates said in a released statement. The Buckeyes are 3-0 against BC and havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played the school since a 38-6 win at the Kickoff Classic at the Meadowlands in New Jersey in 1995. Over the course of those three games, OSU outscored BC, 103-45. The Buckeyes will also face Oregon in 2020 and 2021, after locking in a home-and-home series with the Ducks on Oct. 23. On Oct. 10, OSU announced a rematch against Texas for the 2022 and 2023 seasons. The ďŹ&#x201A;urry of schedule additions began on Oct. 2, when the Buckeyes agreed to a home-andhome series with Texas Christian University for 2018 and 2019. OSU is a combined 16-3-1 against BC, Oregon, Texas and TCU. The Buckeyes continue play in the 2012 season Saturday against Illinois at 3:30 p.m. in Ohio Stadium.

‘Wreck-It Ralph’ wrecking Disney records JOHN WERNECKE Asst. multimedia editor In 1990, Rich Moore co-directed the first “Treehouse of Horror” episode of “The Simpsons.” Twenty-two years later, the Emmy-Award winner is tinkering with more than prime time with the release of his debut feature-length film “Wreck-It Ralph” — and he’s breaking records. Backed by Walt Disney Animation Studios and slated to hit theaters Friday, the film holds the distinction of having one of the highest numbers of individual characters in a Disney movie with 190 of them. The film focuses on the video game character Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly), who grows tired of being the villainous foil to character Fix-It Felix Jr. (voice of Jack McBrayer) and escapes to Hero’s Duty, a new game that lets him be a hero, giving him a chance to prove himself. Moore said the film did not initially focus on Ralph as the main character. “He was like the bad guy character that threw trash at Felix, you know?” Moore said. “Maybe that

his commitment to creating a Ralph character audiences could root for. “I just root for every one of John’s characters and kind of want them to achieve their goals, you know,” Moore said. “He is amazing.” Brian Orchosky, a fourth-year in computer and information science and the primary leader of Ohio State’s Game Creation Club, said the group is planning on seeing the movie due to its video game connection. “Wreck-It Ralph seems like more than simply a movie about video games - it’s also (an) homage to them,” Orchosky said in an email. “That much is obvious because of all the cameos of established video game characters that they have, from the obvious to the obscure.” Brant Finzer, a graduate student in chemistry, said he considers himself an “old game enthusiast.” Finzer said he hasn’t seen any good movies that relate to video games. “I don’t want to admit it, but I’ve seen the ‘Doom’ movie because The Rock was in it. That was just a travesty.” Finzer said. He said he’s hopeful that “Wreck-It Ralph” will have quality video game humor. “I might be able to get a few a chuckles out of it.” Finzer said.


May the force be with Disney in creating its first ‘Star Wars’ film JOEL THOMAS Lantern reporter

There’s going to be a seventh “Star Wars” movie. Oh how I’ve waited to hear those words. I can remember when I was 6 years old and my dad forced me to sit down on the couch and watch some space movie with aliens and dinosaur-looking things. I instantly fell in love with the concept of a lightsaber. This led to, for a span of time, anything remotely close in length to a lightsaber being treated as such and swung around the house. Since that day on the couch, I’ve been hooked on the trilogies. And needless to say, “Star Wars” was an integral part of my childhood and remains integral in my life today. On Tuesday, it was announced that The Walt Disney Co. acquired Lucasfilm Ltd., a film production company founded by “Star Wars” creator George Lucas, for a whopping sum of $4.05 billion. With this announcement came an even more important notice though — in 2015 a new “Star Wars” film, with the working title “Episode VII,” with films eight and nine to follow. This latter announcement comes with a flood of mixed opinions. And here’s mine: Is this really necessary? Don’t get me wrong, I will absolutely be at the midnight premiere of “Star Wars: Episode VII.” “Star Wars” is a fantastic series of films and

should be our main character. And it was at that point that I thought well, yeah, I mean it’s more interesting to watch a story about Donkey Kong than Mario, especially if Donkey Kong is wondering, ‘Why do I throw barrels at this guy? And why do people hate me for doing it?’” Once the writers settled on Ralph for the lead role, they continued to create a record-breaking number of characters. Moore said his time working on “The Simpsons” prepared him to direct a movie with this many characters. “My background is from ‘Simpsons’ and ‘Futurama.’ And ‘Simpsons’ has a gigantic cast,” Moore said. “Over the years that cast has grown so big.” The director was unaware his film had broken any records until a friend brought it to his attention. Moore said breaking the record wasn’t his aim, but the film simply required a large cast. “I mean it’s a big movie, and there are lots of locations,” he said. The cast, which also includes Sarah Silverman and Jane Lynch of “Glee,” brought their comedic talents together by recording their voice-overs together in the same room, Moore said. Reilly especially impressed the director with

MHz Legacy released its debut, self-titled album Oct. 30.

Pack of rappers jump start Columbus’ underground hip-hop scene

Follow Us


MADELINE ROTH Lantern reporter More than 15 years after underground hip-hop group The Megahertz, or MHz, got its start rapping in a record store basement near Ohio State’s campus, it is finally releasing its debut album. But things have changed for MHz over the years, most notably the loss of Camu Tao, who passed away in 2008 after losing a battle with lung cancer. His death prompted the four remaining members of MHz, which include producer RJD2 and rappers Copywrite, Tage Future and Jakki Da Motamouth, to rename the group in Tao’s honor.

MHz Legacy released its debut, self-titled album Tuesday. “The album is a current version of what people had known Megahertz to be,” said Tage Future, whose real name is Elliot McDaniel. “It’s a more polished version of the first time we ever did something together.” The group did not release an official album together until now because each member had been pursuing solo careers. “Everyone got caught up doing their solo thing,” said Copywrite, whose real name is Peter Nelson. “We took for granted the fact that we’re in a group and, not to toot our own horn, but we’re kind of decent at what we do. It got put on the back burner but now we’ve got the solo stuff out of the way.” Nelson said MHz got its start playing in the area

around OSU’s campus, most notably at the Groove Shack, a record store in the Short North which closed in 1997. “We always rapped anywhere and everywhere,” Nelson said, adding Columbus’ music scene, especially its underground hip-hop movement, has changed drastically over the years. “There wasn’t even a music scene when we first discovered the hip-hop scene in ’94, ’95,” Nelson said. “We saw the Groove Shack on public access channel 21. It was this record store that had open mic nights and all these rappers started coming out of the woodwork. We’ve seen the scene grow to being worldwide.”

[ aâ&#x20AC;&#x201A;+e ] â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To Kill a Mockingbirdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to be an open book on C-Bus stage Nicole albanese Lantern reporter â&#x20AC;&#x153;To Kill a Mockingbird,â&#x20AC;? a classic in American literature, is slated to come to life in Columbus. SRO Theatre Company is scheduled to present a play adaptation of Harper Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel 8 p.m. Friday at the Columbus Performing Arts Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shedd Theater. The performance is scheduled to run through Nov. 11. Director Mark Mann, who has been directing for 25 years, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;To Kill a Mockingbirdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? popularity connects people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If there is one thing that all Americans have in common, it would be familiarity with this book,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mann said the book is one of his favorites, and he jumped on the opportunity to direct the play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(I) always wanted to do something with this story, whether it be acting or directing,â&#x20AC;? Mann said. John Kuhn, a Ph.D. candidate in theatre at Ohio State, plays

Atticus Finch, the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer and father to Scout and Jem. Josie Merkle, a Columbus native, plays the grown-up version of Jean Louise â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scoutâ&#x20AC;? Finch, the narrator and protagonist of the story. Kuhn said he is looking forward to playing Atticus Finch, who tries his best to defend Tom Robinson, the black man accused of raping teenage Mayella Ewell. Although many people disagree with his characterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to save Robinson from prison, Kuhn said, his character stood up for what he believed was right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great role,â&#x20AC;? Kuhn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I love about it is that he embodies so much of what is good and right. He teaches good morals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stories like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To Kill a Mockingbirdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are important for us to hear and experience because they serve as great role models for us as far as what our own behaviors should be like.â&#x20AC;? Kuhn called the book an American favorite said he loves the novel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very moving story. It is extremely engaging and

MHz Legacy from 9A Marty Jones, who co-founded Groove Shack in 1993 with Mike Curry, said he thinks the record store relied on MHz as much as MHz relied on it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think one could have made it without the other, meaning I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Groove Shack couldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made it without the kids at the time because Copywrite and Tage and all those guys came into the store and created authenticity,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But maybe those guys might not have had a career without the Groove Shack, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of like one helped the other.â&#x20AC;? When the Groove Shack was first founded, Jones said hip-hop was not the â&#x20AC;&#x153;giant forceâ&#x20AC;? in Columbus that it is today, but when he and Curry started recording the open mic nights and airing them on the public access channel, a wealth of talent was unearthed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was this tremendous talent of local kids just trying to make a living,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The beauty

Kuhn said. Merkle said the play should appeal to audiences because â&#x20AC;&#x153;the story is applicable to today due to racism.â&#x20AC;? She said, however, those talking points are what sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most excited about presenting through the performance.

of those times is there was nothing to win, no prize. Someone lost and someone won that night in a battle. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what these kids were working for, and that was bigger and more important than anything else.â&#x20AC;? Since those days, Nelson said the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music has improved with time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more polished now,â&#x20AC;? Nelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You do something longer and you get better at it, and we can apply that to our music and to our experience. When we were 17, we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sing that hook because our voice would crack. Everything weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done from the first rap weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written has been training for this album.â&#x20AC;? One thing that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed, however, is the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dynamic. Though the members have sometimes gone months without seeing each other, McDaniel said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always easy when they get back to working with each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed that much actually,â&#x20AC;? McDaniel

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love to make the characters come to life,â&#x20AC;? Merkle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am most looking forward to bringing the whole experience of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To Kill a Mockingbirdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to life. I (canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t) wait to tell the story to the audience.â&#x20AC;? Tickets are $10 for students, $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and $15 for the morning performance, and can be purchased on SROâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. Shedd Theater is located at 549 Franklin Ave.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Star Warsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; from 9A I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see its legacy tainted by a disappointing seventh movie. Too often have great films been ruined by sequels. The foremost factor weighing on the next â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Warsâ&#x20AC;? film is that Disney has no experience with making a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Warsâ&#x20AC;? film. There is one main reason why I am afraid of this movie. For as much as I love the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Warsâ&#x20AC;? films, they do have their issues. Episodes IV, V and VI were nearly perfect. Episodes I, II and III, however, could have been better. Episode I had no real main character and featured the most pointless character ever created, Jar Jar Binks. Episodes II and III had to build off of that and, at times, had a pretty shaky plot. What I fear is the continuation of this decline in quality. Lucas will no longer be the director, but he is still being kept on staff as creative adviser. The movies should certainly veer away from how Episodes I, II and III were done. While Lucas directed the first three amazing movies (Episodes IV, V and VI), it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be discredited that he also directed the three most recent disappointments (Episodes I, II and III). I realize â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Warsâ&#x20AC;? was his baby, and I do appreciate his earlier work on the films, but given his latest additions to the series, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably best that he is stepping away completely and giving Disney a shot. Now comes the flip side of my take on a Disney-backed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Wars.â&#x20AC;? The ending of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Warsâ&#x20AC;? movies so far has left me with a desire for more. Will Luke Skywalker try and rebuild the Jedi order? What of Leia? Yoda said that if Luke were to fail, then Leia would be the Jedis last hope. What greatness is she capable of? Obviously she and Han Solo get married and who knows what amazing feats their all-star children will be able to accomplish. There must still be enemies lurking that followed Emperor Palpatine who are willing to avenge him or continue the way of the Sith. There are so many ways the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Warsâ&#x20AC;? universe can be continued. But as far as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m concerned, there is only one certainty in this movie: As long as there are lightsabers, I will love it.

said of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dynamic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Nelson) and I work the closest together â&#x20AC;Ś and as far as the passion for both of us, that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t faltered at all since we were teenagers. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve still got the same level of passion, if not more. I live in Atlanta, but despite us not living in the same city, the music isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affected.â&#x20AC;? Nelson said the new album took about six months to complete, but the group had a deadline in mind the whole time it was making it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted it to come out this year because I dropped two albums this year and (McDaniel) has one solo album dropping this year, so we had to rush the clock to beat the deadline,â&#x20AC;? Nelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always perfectionists so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always things you can tweak and make better.â&#x20AC;? McDaniel agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deadlines are important with cats like us who want to go back and do extra tweaks,â&#x20AC;? McDaniel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It kind of gives us some boundaries and parameters that we have to play within.â&#x20AC;?

McDaniel said MHz Legacy is hoping to play promotional, live shows for the album within the next couple months, but no shows are booked yet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just want to share this project with everybody and allow it to settle in,â&#x20AC;? McDaniel said. Nelson and McDaniel are also slated to be featured in the documentary â&#x20AC;&#x153;Groove Shack,â&#x20AC;? a film made by Jones chronicling the origins of the record store and its contribution to underground hip-hop. Nelson said making the documentary reminded the group that it owes much of its success to Columbusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; underground hip-hop fans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a platinum rapper, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy with how everything is,â&#x20AC;? Nelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d asked us 10 years ago, we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be or what we would sound like, so we want to thank all of Columbus because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve supported us for a long time.â&#x20AC;?
