Ohio State students pay a $37.50 student activity fee every semester to be distributed among services for students. The money’s allocation and the decision behind the process, however, is a conversation that keeps many students in the dark. In the fiscal year 2012, the student activity fee generated $4.48 million, said Office of Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs. He said it usually generates about $4 million. “The amount distributed is a little less because of things like staff salaries and resources (such as the student resource room in the Union),” Isaacs said. In 2012, the amount of the fee that was distributed between the Ohio Union Activities Board, the Discount Ticket Program (D-Tix), student organizations, student governments, Signature Events, Buck-I-SERV, and Pay it Forward was $3.97 million. OUAB receives more than half of the student activity fee funds. Mia Grube, president of OUAB, said the group received 53.2 percent, or $2 million, of the money generated from the student activity fee for the 2012-2013 academic year. OUAB is the group behind Flicks for Free at the Union, craft nights at the Union, the live music series in Woody’s Tavern, movies on the Oval and more. “Other than those set events, we have a lot of freedom and are not required to do the same types of things each year,” Grube said. Grube said OUAB spends as much of its allotment as possible during the year, and the organization keeps detailed records to stay on track.

“Every year, we spend as much of the funds we are allotted as possible, which requires meticulous planning and bookkeeping,” Grube said. Grube said the group has never gone over budget. Members of OUAB tend to overestimate the cost

for events to make sure they will have enough to cover every activity, Grube said. The percentage of the funds OUAB receives has fluctuated over the last 9 years. “When the student activity fee was created in 2003, OUAB received 55 percent. When the (student activity fee) increased in 2010, OUAB’s portion changed to (about 52.7) percent. Last spring was a scheduled review year for how the fee is allocated, and OUAB’s percentage increased slightly to its current levels,” said Grube in an email. Grube could not give the reason behind the percent fluctuation. Some OSU students feel that there should be more awareness made about the fee that is tacked onto regular tuition fees each semester, while others feel that the amount OUAB receives is high, but possibly worth it. “It seems like it’s a lot of money, $2 million,” said Eric Clemens, a third-year in computer and information sciences. “I would like for it to go down, but I find it worth it every now and then,” Alexxa Kuhn, a third-year in communication, said she didn’t even know that such a large percentage of the fee went to OUAB. “I don’t mind it, but I guess I would like to know a little more about it just because you are paying money for it,” Kuhn said. “I don’t really have that much money, but I’m not opposed to paying for it for the extra stuff, but maybe (with) a little more awareness.” The Council on Student Affairs, a subcommittee of the University Senate, makes decisions about the structure of the student activity fee, according to the Ohio Union website. CSA is a representative group of undergraduate, graduate and professional students and faculty and staff members.

Oval fences annoy students



President Barack Obama’s re-election was for many college students, a part of history they could be involved in and their first chance to vote for president. But some OSU students still chose not to cast their ballots. “Honestly, I couldn’t justify voting for either of them,” said Lauren Granchie, a third-year in forestry, fisheries and wildlife. “I didn’t feel strongly enough about either candidate to feel comfortable voting for them. “If one of them would have won and it was the one that I voted for and things went downhill, I’d feel like I contributed to it,” she said. “I didn’t feel either of them would do the best job running our country.” Li Mei, a fourth-year in logistics management and marketing, is working in a co-op program in New York City. She said that even though she could have voted by absentee ballot, she chose not to request one because she didn’t think either candidate was suitable for office. “To be honest, I’m not that educated in either of their policies and what they believe in enough,”

Mei said. “I just feel like we are picking the lesser of two evils because as someone who is about to get a job under (the Affordable Care Act), it’s not fair because all of our hard-earned money is going to people who need it, which is great, but at the same time I don’t want my hard-earned money going away,” she said. Along with candidate indecision and problems with location, some students just didn’t register on time. “I didn’t realize I wasn’t registered to vote until it was too late,” said Dave Grudzinski, a fourth-year in psychology. “But I wasn’t really a fan of either candidate. If I had to pick, I guess I would have given Obama my vote.” Some students said they believe voters aren’t taking the necessary actions to educate themselves in their political decisions. “People are not informed, they are just making these decisions based on what other people say just based on the fact that they are not educated at all,” Mei said. “I know for a fact that unless you are a poli-sci (political science) major, no one keeps in tune with everything that goes on with the government.” Granchie added that the problem with general voters is where they get their information.

“I definitely don’t think that most voters are informed,” Granchie said. “I think they get a lot of their information from very biased sources, so they are making their decisions based upon that, but they are not really making well-informed decisions, they are just forming their own opinions based on what they hear from the media and other people.” Other students think that some voters rely too heavily on their personal ideas.

“People tend to vote based on their own beliefs,” said Grudzinski. “I’m not saying everyone does, but people who strongly support one candidate or the other don’t listen to what the other person has to say.” Mei said that if citizens were really passionate about the direction of the country, they would pay attention to politics all year. “I think people just become political (on Election Day),” Mei said.

The OSU Board of Trustees is set to discuss the Schottenstein Center constrution project this week.

A two-part construction project to renovate the Schottenstein Center is over budget and behind schedule. The Ohio State Athletics Department began the project in June to renovate the locker rooms, expand the strength and conditioning training room and build a new practice gym for the men’s and women’s basketball teams near the northwest rotunda of the center. The Lantern reported in May that the project was originally expected to cost $13.7 million, but will be more because of unexpected construction delays and costs. Ben Jay, senior associate athletics director for finance and operations at OSU, said the project will end up costing $19 million in total. “Due to unanticipated construction issues causing

delay and higher costs, higher than anticipated construction bids coming in and the need to add funds to our construction contingency safety net, we will be going to the Board of Trustees next week to increase the project to $19 million,” Jay said. The Board is scheduled to meet Thursday and Friday to discuss several university matters, including the approval of $1.5 million more for the basketball practice facility. According to the meeting agenda, $1.25 million of the $1.5 million total is to establish “a final guaranteed maximum price (GMP) amendment.” The remaining $250,000 is for “differing subsurface conditions that were encountered during excavation on the interior renovation portion of the project,” according to the agenda. Mike Gatto, general manager at the Schottenstein Center, said the delay of the renovation is due

campus Orange fences on the Oval preserve grass, annoy students liz young Lantern reporter The orange fences on the Oval might be around for a while longer. There to support recently planted grass, the fencing allows the new grass seedlings to become mature enough to stand up to “normal use,” stated Lindsay Komlanc, Ohio State spokeswoman for Administration and Planning, in an email. This might mean the fenced-off areas will remain fenced off until spring, Komlanc said. The grass was planted by the OSU Facilities Operations and Development Landscape Services team. “FOD’s Landscape Services will evaluate each area (in the spring) to determine when we will be able to re-open them for use,” Komlanc said. There have been several big events held on the Oval so far this school year that have contributed to grass damage: Rock the Oval, a free concert for students, was held on the Oval Oct. 4. Five days later, President Barack Obama gave a speech on the Oval to a crowd of about 15,000. “The areas currently under repair do overlap with some of the areas used for events held on the Oval this fall. The lawns on the Oval are used frequently by many people,” Komlanc said. “We regularly re-seed and repair grass in areas that receive high usage around the university.”

There was also temporary fencing in place along Woody Hayes Drive while the university was “establishing grass after the construction along that route,” Komlanc said. She added that there is currently fencing around the RPAC square while grass grows as well. Some students said they don’t like the fences because of their neon orange color. “Normally we all just like sit in the grass (on the Oval) and stuff, and it’s like normally really pretty and open, but now it’s just like in the way of everything and it kind of doesn’t look good,” said Brittany Clemmons, a second-year in human development and family science. Many said they didn’t know why the fences are on the Oval. “I don’t really know what they’re for, so I guess I’m just kind of wondering what they’re about,” said Alexa Pohle, a first-year in exploration. Others said they’re not bothered by the fences because of the construction all over campus. “It doesn’t bother me that much. The whole campus is under construction so I’m kind of used to it by now. I’m not sure why they’re there, I don’t know if I’ve ever like been told why they’re there,” said Marcus Stierwalt, a second-year in accounting. “I assume they’re just to preserve the grass from the concert and when the president came, so I’m fine with that.” Some students added that the university should tell students why the fences are there to avoid further damage.

Fences were set up on the Oval last month following Rock the Oval, a free concert for students, and an Oct. 9 campaign event held by President Barack Obama. The fences were constructed to protect growing grass. “(They should tell us) to make sure that people don’t try to destroy it and stuff. I mean, I wouldn’t personally, but you know, some people just (do) that,” Pohle said. Others said they weren’t fans of the fences,

but they didn’t know what would be a better alternative. “(They) could’ve had fences that aren’t so ugly, but other than that, I don’t know what they could do,” said Seth Baldosser, a fourth-year in English.

OSU campus cafe fueled by nearby organic garden hannah brokenshire Lantern reporter

The garden near the Wexner Center for the Arts on campus is used to provide fresh ingrediants for food prepared at the nearby Heirloom Cafe.


At one spot on campus, food doesn’t travel far from the ground to your plate. In the back of the Wexner Center for the Arts near College Road, an organic garden is being tended, and once it’s crop is yielded, it travels no farther than the Heirloom Café in the Wexner Center. The Wexner Center Chef’s garden is a collaboration between Ohio State’s Ecological Engineering Society, the Wexner Center for the Arts and chef John Skaggs and aims to bring a food-to-fork concept to campus.

“There has been a big push for local food,” said Angelica Huerta, a member of EES. “We’re losing that touch with our environment and our food system.” Skaggs, co-owner of Heirloom Café , said the garden is a way for Ohio State to reconnect with its agricultural roots. “It’s a tie-in to the community on this campus, (OSU) started as an ag (agricultural) school and we’re reminded of that with the garden,” Skaggs said. “That connection of a farm-to-fork or food-to-fork movement is about being part of the process all the way.” It might go unnoticed by some, but Skaggs said his business has felt the garden’s impact.

Fee from 1A “As a general matter, the fee is controlled by the CSA ‌ This ensures that students are ultimately in control of how student activity fee dollars are allocated and spent, and the council vigorously exercises its oversight responsibilities for the fee,â€? said Peter Koltak, chair of the Council on Student Affairs. The CSA ultimately decides the fund allocation of the student fee. While the percentage of the fund that each organization receives is accessible, the reasoning behind the allocation and the fluctuations in percentages cannot. Koltak explained that the fee allocation is determined every five years in a comprehensive review, with smaller reviews during the years in between.

to working out issues with installing a HydroWorx exercise pool in the training room. “We’ve had some challenges with the engineering of the HydroWorx because it’s basically an in-ground pool that’s in the training room area,� Gatto said. “We have to kind of re-engineer that and come up with a different plan. It’s a complex piece of equipment so we have to make sure that it’s right.� The locker rooms were supposed to be finished before the winter sports season started, but OSU basketball and hockey athletes will have to change in the visiting locker rooms until about late November. Gatto said the construction team is working hard to have the locker rooms finished as soon as possible. “First part of the project is getting the locker rooms done,� he said. “It looks like we’re slightly delayed so we’re hoping to have those locker rooms complete by Thanksgiving.� Don Patko, associate athletics director for facilities management , said even though the renovations are taking longer than expected and costing more, it will benefit OSU athletes in the long run. “It will give the men’s and women’s team(s) new locker rooms, it’ll give them new lounges, it will give them a new training room and a therapy area to do some underwater treadmill work,� Patko said. “They will also have a new practice gymnasium up top with a full basketball court and they will also have a new weight room.� Jay said the project is coming along and should

“I think the population is willing to participate in eating healthy if we provide them with fresher food that we have available to us,� Skaggs said. EES member Caitlin Eger said the group likes to think of the project as a partnership with Heirloom. “We wanted to make this project as great as possible for John. We like to think of him as sort of our client,� Eger said. The garden’s location was also a key factor in combining visual arts with culinary arts. “We approached (the garden) from two angles: be beautiful, artistic with landscape architecture and also think of John as our primary client, which involved thinking about the culinary arts,� Eger said. The garden operates on a closed system, meaning the intent is to limit its footprint beyond OSU. Skaggs said about 50 percent of Heirloom’s waste is vegetable that is recycled as compost and then used to fertilize the crops. The idea of a sustainable garden stems from EES involvement in a local summer 2011 permaculture workshop. Huerta defines permaculture as the organization of environmental resources for human benefit with minimal environmental impact. Project funding came from a Coca-Cola Student

Due to unanticipated construction issues causing delay and higher costs ... we will be going to the Board of Trustees next week to increase the project to $19 million.

Sustainability Grant, available through OSU’s partnership with the brand. The grant website said money is awarded to projects that directly contribute to reducing environmental impacts on campus, such as resource conservation and greenhouse gas reduction. In November 2011, EES was awarded $15,000 to begin construction on the garden, and a year later it includes food production and composting capabilities. During the last growing section the garden was home to radishes, garlic, turnips, and potatoes. In preparation for the Winter, the club plans to plant clover or other ground-covering crops. Shadrie Sahaag, a third-year in biology, has not eaten at Heirloom but has been there with a friend. Khan said her friend enjoyed her meal, and Sahaag agreed that she would rather eat at a restaurant where she knew where their food was coming from. “Honestly, I think (the farm-to-fork concept is) a good idea,� Sahaag said, though she had not noticed the garden on campus. Huerta said composting a garden is a labor-intensive process and it allows students to get involved. Student volunteers had the opportunity through the First Year Experience program to work in the garden, and Huerta is hopeful the future will bring cooking classes, garden tours and workshops.

The USS Yorktown at sea prior to its 2nd decommission from the U.S. Navy in 1970.

ANDREW HOLLERAN Photo editor The Ohio State men’s basketball team spent the majority of its offseason training as if it was a track squad. Wind sprints. Suicides. Mile-long runs. That’s the type of training OSU did on the 90-degree days in Columbus this summer to prepare for the upcoming season. “We’ve seen the track this summer more than we’ve seen the court,” said junior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr., a returning starter from OSU’s Final Four team last season. With former standout Jared Sullinger gone to the NBA, the inside-out style of basketball the Buckeyes became accustomed to when the wide-bodied forward arrived on campus two years ago has left. In its place this year is likely to be an up-tempo, transition-based offense that should feature plenty of highlight-reel worthy dunks and big plays. OSU players are excited for the new brand of basketball likely to be employed. “I love it. It’s a lot more fun when you can run up and down the floor. We have a good group of guys that do that,” said junior guard Aaron Craft, another returning starter. Replacing Sullinger will be a challenge for OSU, and a big one at that. Filling in for the two-time All-American will be a combination of sophomore center Amir Williams and redshirt senior forward Evan Ravenel. Former guard William Buford is also gone. Stepping in for the former four-year starter will

Some liken sporting events to wars and battles, but the USS Yorktown has seen and fought in the real thing. Sport will converge with the Yorktown, a decommissioned U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, when the Ohio State men’s and women’s basketball teams will open their 2012-13 seasons against Marquette and Notre Dame, respectively, Friday in the Carrier Classic. Friday’s games, which will take place on a court constructed on the Yorktown’s flight deck, bare no likeness to the battles the warship has seen. Still, OSU coach Thad Matta has an appreciation for the venue’s history. The OSU teams and their opponents’ stay on the ship will last for the duration of the 40-minute basketball games. Retired U.S. Navy Lt. Bob Dorsey, 73, of Milton, Fla., recalled that a typical stay as a sailor on the Yorktown was much longer. Unlike for the basketball teams, a “short” stay, or cruise, on the ship would last six to nine weeks. Long cruises could last six to nine months, and the cruises weren’t for basketball games or other forms of pleasure, but for war.

be sophomore forwards LaQuinton Ross and Sam Thompson. Sophomore guard Shannon Scott will likely get more playing time because of Buford’s departure, too. Together, Buford and Sullinger were responsible for roughly 43 percent of OSU’s scoring last season. What the Buckeyes might lack in terms of experience and developed skill this season, they hope to make up in speed and athleticism. Williams, arguably, is a better runner than Sullinger. Ravenel lost 25 pounds this offseason, likely priming himself for the transition game. Thompson and Ross are lankier and seem to be better leapers than Buford. Scott might be one of the fastest lead guards in the country, according to his coach. “I don’t know if anybody pushes the ball up the floor as quick as Shannon Scott can,” OSU coach Thad Matta said. “He gets the ball from point A to point B as well as I’ve seen.” There isn’t likely to be a hole on the Buckeyes’ roster when it comes to being able to get up and down the floor. “Just about every position we have someone that runs,” Craft said. “I like it, just putting pressure on the defense more times than not. I don’t think teams in the Big Ten are used to playing at that pace.” But the Buckeyes will have to learn how to run, and run effectively, before they can call themselves a premier transition team. And it’s not something that is learned easily. “I don’t think a lot of people realize how smart of a team you have to be to play up and down like that,” Smith Jr. said. “It’s a difficult transition. It’s different than what we normally play.” While the Buckeyes will be more of a run-and-

Dorsey, a former helicopter pilot and President of the Yorktown Association, was stationed on the Yorktown from 1963-1966 and was twice deployed to Vietnam and the South China Sea. Following World War II, during which the ship faced bombings and other forms of heavy combat, the Yorktown was modified for rooting out the Soviet submarine threat during the Cold War. When it became evident that there was no threat of Soviet submarines in the seas near Vietnam, Dorsey’s mission changed, he said. “We were doing basic utility work, moving men and cargo from different ships in the South China Sea,” Dorsey said. “We were also doing what was considered coastal surveillance. They would send us out to investigate various shipboard targets that they would pick up on our radar and we would fly out to sea if there was a threat. And so that was our primary mission.” Then, the mission changed again once Vietnam “was going pretty big,” Dorsey said. “A lot of (planes) got shot down, so our mission really changed to being combat rescue,” Dorsey said. “During all that time, we never lost a single helicopter due to combat loss, which was pretty spectacular.” And there were many missions that launched on the sea and saw Dorsey and

gun type squad this season, there will be times when OSU has to settle down and run its half-court offense effectively. That’s when OSU will probably miss Sullinger and Buford most. “There is a lot of speed and athleticism, but there are some tangible pieces that are going to be missing this year,” Matta said. Those tangible pieces were the players that came up with big buckets down the stretch of games for OSU last season. Running an effective half-court set will be key in making up for what was lost from the 2011-12 team. “When we do have to slow it down, (we have to) execute our halfcourt stuff,” Thompson said. “To say that we’re going to be a running team doesn’t mean that we completely abandon our half-court principles and our half-court execution. We want to be the best of both worlds.” When OSU does push the ball, though, the players said it will be exciting to watch. Matta echoed that statement, saying there were many dunks on the fast break during practice this offseason. That doesn’t mean Matta will let OSU settle for being just a fun team to watch, however. “I’d take effective over exciting any day,” he said. OSU opens its season Friday against Marquette at 7 p.m. on the deck of the USS Yorktown in the second annual Carrier Classic in Charleston, S.C. The game is scheduled to be broadcasted by NBC Sports Network.

other members of America venture into Vietnamese airspace. The missions, while thrilling, Dorsey said, were exceedingly dangerous and included night missions at low altitude. “You know, flying off an aircraft carrier is probably one of the most exciting things most people ever do, and I thoroughly enjoyed it,” Dorsey said. “We did a lot of night flying, which was fairly dangerous … generally, helicopters were limited to a maximum altitude of 200 feet. So on a dark night at 200-feet, you really better pay attention.” Obviously, OSU won’t face dangers like what Dorsey saw. The biggest risk the two Buckeyes’ squads run on Friday is starting their respective seasons with a loss. For the men’s team, it would be the first opening-game loss since a 76-65 defeat to San Francisco on Nov. 21, 2003. OSU women’s coach Jim Foster has never lost a season opener since arriving in Columbus for the 2002-03 campaign. Given the Buckeyes teams’ history of opening-night success, some fans in Columbus might be disappointed to miss the opener. The Carrier Classic will take place in Charleston, S.C., some 10 hours from Columbus by car.

OSU forward Deshaun Thomas, then a sophomore, cuts down the net after the Buckeyes’ March 24 NCAA Tournament victory against Syracuse at TD Garden in Boston. OSU won, 77-70.

Ohio State basketball coach Thad Matta knew what he was getting in Deshaun Thomas. The junior forward is a scorer, but ever since Matta could remember he’s also had a bit of a loose trigger. When Thomas played in the 2009 Class 2A state championship game in his home state of Indiana, OSU’s coach was there to watch. The game’s opening tip went to Thomas who immediately threw up a deep 3-pointer. Air ball. “You haven’t seen anything yet,” Matta said to the person sitting next to him at the game. Thirty-four points and 15 boards later, Thomas’ Bishop Luers High School was hoisting the state championship trophy. Now, the same guy who hurriedly threw up an ill-advised air ball in his high school’s state championship game and admitted that he used to “chuck threes, just play to get that shot up” during his freshman year at OSU is the man who will lead the Buckeyes’ offense this season. Is Matta comfortable with that notion? “Yeah,” Matta said. “I think so.” He might not have any choice. With former forward Jared Sullinger now with the Boston

Celtics and guard William Buford playing professionally in Spain, much of the night-to-night scoring load will be thrust onto Thomas’ broad shoulders. After the Buckeyes’ 2011 tournament run to the Final Four, it appeared Thomas might join his two teammates in the professional ranks. “It was close,” Thomas said of his decision. “I was thinking about it … because I had a great season so I was very close. But then I sat off in my room by myself and I made that decision myself, and I think I made a perfect decision by coming back.” His return is a big reason the Buckeyes — which are playing in what is expected to be the most difficult basketball conference in the country — are ranked No. 4 in both major preseason polls. For the Buckeyes to live up to those expectations, Thomas — who was named a first-team All-American by the Associated Press — will have to play a major role. The OSU forward showed he had the capabilities to be a major player last season, averaging 15.9 points and 5.4 rebounds for the season, and 19.2 points in the NCAA Tournament. Most of his production though, came with the defense focused on Sullinger, giving Thomas a little more freedom. As the only returning Buckeye to average more than nine points per game, the ire of opposing defenses will be fixed upon Thomas.

sports Yorktown from 5A Buckeye Nation will get to see its team play live at the Schottenstein Center again, though. They will return home. In combat on the Yorktown, Dorsey obviously couldn’t make the same guarantee. “As Navy sailors do,” Dorsey said, “you tell your family, ‘Goodbye. I’ll see you when I get back.’” Matta conveyed appreciation for the sacrifice of the Yorktown’s crews during OSU’s Oct. 11 media day. “(The Carrier Classic is) something that these young men, for the rest of their lives, will remember,” Matta said. “Obviously I want

to win the basketball game, but that is one game that is more than the game of basketball. People forget we got guys fighting the war for us right now.” OSU women’s basketball is scheduled to tip off its Carrier Classic game against Notre Dame at 4 p.m. on Friday. The OSU men will tip off against Marquette at 7 p.m. Yorktown takes a starring role The Yorktown has enjoyed Hollywood limelight in her day, having served at the movie set for the movies “The Fighting Lady” and “Tora! Tora! Tora!” (1970). She was also featured in the TV series “Get Smart” (1968) and on the SyFy Channel’s “Ghost Hunters” (2012).

Tayler Hill: ‘Chemistry is there’ for women’s basketball

Thomas from 5A



“I’m pretty sure in the Big Ten it will be different,” Thomas said. “I seen how they played Jared last year and I think this year I’ll probably get some of that.” To prepare him, Thomas’ teammates tried to simulate the added defensive pressure he’ll face during summer workouts. His teammates employed double teams, triple teams and traps in scrimmages, and tried to make things as difficult as possible for him on the offensive end. “That’s going to help us big during the season when he realizes that guys are keying in on him,” said junior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. “It’s not going to phase him because he’s going to be so used to it from our open gyms that he’s not going to think twice.” How did Thomas deal with the added pressure? “Believe it or not, there’s two people guarding him, pulling on his jersey and he still scores the ball,” Smith said. “I mean, I don’t doubt him.” His coach doesn’t either. Matta said Thomas has reined in his free-shooting ways and has turned into a more complete basketball player. “When he came in here as a freshman, if you weren’t sitting on the rim he couldn’t see you when he caught the ball,” Matta said. “He’s added a lot of different things to his game and his basketball IQ just continues to expand. “He’s making himself a complete player.” Thomas and OSU are set to tip off their season Friday against Marquette as part of the Carrier Classic on board the USS Yorktown in Charleston, S.C. Tip is set for 7 p.m.


Yorktown aids in space exploration On Dec. 27, 1968, the Yorktown recovered the astronauts aboard NASA’s Apollo 8 spacecraft, the first manned spacecraft to travel to the vicinity of Earth’s moon and return safely, according to a Carrier Classic release. Apollo 8 Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders splashed down in the Pacific Ocean before a Yorktown helicopter arrived to scoop the astronauts out of the ocean.

Kayla Zamary Lantern reporter Coming into a season with big shoes to fill, the Ohio State women’s basketball team is opening its 2012-13 campaign in a big way. The Buckeyes open their season on Friday at the Carrier Classic against Notre Dame, and OSU is ready to start the year with three returning starters, including senior guard Tayler Hill, a preseason watch list candidate for the Wade Trophy. “I think it’s a big accomplishment personally as a player and it’s a good thing to be named,” Hill said. The senior guard is one of 25 NCAA Division I women basketball players named to the list for the 2013 State Farm Wade Trophy, which is awarded to the nation’s top player each year. The Minneapolis, Minn., native is no stranger to earning awards, either. Hill was a first team All-Big Ten selection last season and a member of the Big Ten’s All-Defensive team for the second succeeding year. Buckeye coach Jim Foster said it was not a surprise for Hill to be included on the list because of her performance last season. “She is a four-year starter, she had a great junior year,” Foster said. “She is a great player from both an offensive and defensive point of view and she is a very respected player.” Hill led the Buckeyes and the Big Ten last season in points scored, averaging 20.4 points per game. She averaged 12.4 points per game as a sophomore. The senior guard does not see herself making a big jump in points this season from her junior year. “I probably won’t jump as high as I did from sophomore year to junior year but around that range or a little higher,” Hill said. “From sophomore to junior year it was all about experience.” Alongside Hill, redshirt senior guard Amber Stokes and junior center Ashley Adams return as starters. OSU will have to do without sophomore forward Kalpana Beach who suffered a season-ending knee injury. Beach served as a starter for the Buckeyes last season. “Kalpana Beach just had surgery and will not play this year, but we got some depth and experience in her position,” Foster said. “We will see who steps up to the challenge.”

OSU guard Tayler Hill, then a junior, drives to the basket during a Jan. 12 game against Northwestern at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 82-72. Foster said junior center Darryce Moore, junior forward Martina Ellerbe and senior forward Emilee Harmon will need to step up to fill Beach’s shoes this season. Despite the loss of Beach, Hill said the team chemistry shouldn’t be affected. “I think it’s a good thing because we have played with each other over the years and have more experience in the front and backcourt and we know where each other are on the floor,” Hill said. “The chemistry is there between us.” Foster said the talent of former point guard and 2012 Big Ten Player of the Year Samantha Prahalis, who graduated and now plays for the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury, cannot be replaced. “Defensively, we are going to have to be a really good basketball team and we show signs of being that,” Foster said. “Offensively, no one player can take the place of Sammy Prahalis and we have to do that with a real team effort, and with every indication I have seen, this team is very willing to do that.” The Buckeyes are scheduled to open the season aboard the USS Yorktown in Charleston, S.C., on Friday against Notre Dame at 4 p.m.

‘Skyfall’ director scripts edgier Bond film


Madeline Roth Lantern reporter

Band basks in folk in Columbus Check Friday for our Columbus’ Own series, which spotlights a local music talent every week.

weekend thursday

Jordan Belson: Films Sacred and Profane 7 p.m. @ Wexner Center’s Film/Video Theater the dan White Sextet 7 p.m. @ Ohio Union’s Performance Hall

With 23 movies spread out over 50 years , it’s safe to say most people know what to expect from the James Bond film franchise. But Sam Mendes, director of the latest Bond film, “Skyfall,” plays by his own rules. “The producers said, ‘We don’t want a Bond, we want your Bond,’” Mendes said in a college conference call. “I think it’s one of the more personal things I’ve ever done before and it’s very much the movie I wanted to make.” “Skyfall,” which is slated to hit theaters Friday, stars Daniel Craig as the suave secret agent charged with saving secret intelligence agency MI6 from an attack by a former agent. Though Mendes is known for directing character-based dramas such as “American Beauty” and “Revolutionary Road,” he said the transition into directing an action film was exciting. “I wanted to get myself out of some habits and scare myself,” he said. “That’s what drew me to it.” Though the last Bond film, 2008’s “Quantum of Solace,” directed by Marc Forster, received mixed reviews from critics and fans alike, Mendes said he didn’t feel pressured to deliver a more crowd-pleasing film. “When I came on, there wasn’t a script and I spent a little time pretending that we didn’t have to do all the things we wanted to do … (to) find out what the story was at the root before adding all those things back in. You tell a story that hasn’t been told before and you push the characters in a direction they haven’t been pushed before,” Mendes said.

‘Skyfall,’ starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, is slated to hit theaters Nov. 9. Citing Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy as inspiration, Mendes said he strived to make a darker, edgier blockbuster film. “We are living in a world where people don’t equate large commercial films with having to be light,” Mendes said. “It’s possible now to be dark and push the envelope a little bit more with bigger movies.” David Hoops, a second-year in exploration, said he is planning to attend the midnight premiere of “Skyfall” at Gateway Film Center. “When I was little, my dad and I would watch them all … so I’ve been a fan for a while,” Hoops said. “I’m going in with no expectations, but I think they’ll try to do some cool stuff to wrap up the Daniel Craig era.” Joey Chagnon, a first-year in mathematics, also said he is a fan of the series and is interested in seeing “Skyfall.”

“I’ve seen all the other Bond movies. It’s a great series,” Chagnon said. “All of the movies seem to follow a consistent pattern — a bad guy trying to do something evil and Bond having to stop him — so I’m expecting (‘Skyfall’) to do the same.” These kinds of fan expectations, however, were difficult to balance, Mendes said. “Everyone has their own opinion of what they want a Bond film to be,” Mendes said. “One minute someone would say, ‘I wish you’d put some more humor into it,’ and the next minute someone would say, ‘It’s so much better now that you’re not trying to be funny.’” As a longtime fan of the Bond series, Mendes said he tried to “tune out” other people’s opinions and make the film into something both his adult self and his 12-year-old self would want to see.

“I think if you think too much about what the audience is going to think, you stop making the film you want to make,” Mendes said. “The nice thing about Bond movies is there’ll be others who come along and have their vision of Bond.” Mendes did, however, incorporate his interest in character development into “Skyfall” by exploring Bond’s history and his relationships with other characters, including Judi Dench’s character, M, who heads MI6 and has a pivotal role in “Skyfall.” “I just wanted to create interesting, multidimensional characters that had a few tricks up their sleeves … and had some kind of layers and depths and some kind of sense of they’re not always what they appear,” Mendes said. “It’s about telling a story, whether the character was called James Bond or not. My way of treating him was not to just assume that the audience knew him at all.” In one scene from the film’s trailer, Javier Bardem’s character, the villainous Raoul Silva, asks Bond what his hobby is, to which Bond replies, “Resurrection.” Mendes said that quote can be applied to the Bond film franchise as a whole. “The franchise has to move on and so much of Bond is about regeneration,” Mendes said. “It’s about regenerating stories when you think you’ve reached a dead end — that was one of the things I was most excited about. “When people say they can’t wait to see the next one, that’s the sign of a successful film, and I hope that’s how people feel after seeing the movie,” Mendes said. Visit Friday for a review of “Skyfall.”

The Whigs is scheduled to perform Nov. 12 at The Basement.

C-Bus to ‘Enjoy the Company’ of rock Halie Williams Senior Lantern reporter After only about a decade of existence, rock band The Whigs’ resume already includes appearances on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” and performances with Kings of Leon, MGMT and The Black Keys. The Georgia-based trio is scheduled to perform Monday at The Basement. Doors open at 7 p.m. Although lead singer and guitarist Parker Gispert said the band loves to play on television, he said the band always looks forward to its Columbus shows. “We’ve played there like eight times and it seems like people are generally ready to party no matter what night of the week it is, and a good amount of kids from the college will come over,” Gispert said. The Whigs is touring in support of its fourth studio album “Enjoy the Company,” released Sept. 18, which Gispert describes as a more optimistic record than past material. “This fourth album, we wanted it to be a positive, inviting rock record and wanted it to be a positive listening experience and we thought the title fit the moods well,” he said. Gispert also said the band’s sound is just “straight ahead, loud, exciting rock music.” Jared Cummans, the guitarist for Ballroom Boxer, one of the opening bands for The Whigs’ show at The Basement, said he enjoys the band’s music and is looking forward to touring with it. “I really like their sound, but for me it’s all

By first glance at Allen Stone, one might find it hard to believe he is an R&B and soul singer. He has wavy, blonde hair that falls to his shoulders, dresses in vintage clothing and dons thickrimmed, grandfatherly glasses. “I have really bad eyesight so the glasses are necessary,” Stone said. “A lot of people ask that, ‘Why don’t you cut your hair and put contacts in and look like every suave R&B singer?’ Well that’s not me, I don’t want to be a Justin Timberlake, I want to be Allen Stone.” Stone is scheduled to perform Saturday at The Basement. Doors open at 7 p.m. “This is me man. This isn’t an act … I’m a backwoods hippie kid from the Northwest, Seattle, Wash. This is how we dress and this is how I dress,” Stone said. Marissa Luther, marketing manager for PromoWest Productions, said The Basement attempts to book a diverse lineup of performers and Stone fits nicely into that lineup.

Allen Stone is scheduled to perform Nov. 10 at The Basement. “We’ve had him before and he’s great to work with and people enjoy his shows,” she said. “We’ll continue to bring him back as long as he continues to be popular on the market.” Stone last performed at The Basement May 5. Sixties and ’70s soul music artists such as Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye were just a few musicians Stone said influenced him growing up, but he did not

discover those artists until he was a teenager. “Somebody gave me a Stevie Wonder record when I was 15 and that was kind of the conception of where my love of soul music came from,” Stone said. In 2009, he released his first album “Last to Speak” on his own label StickyStones Records.

[ aâ&#x20AC;&#x201A;+e ] Band to dispose â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Trashgrassâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on C-Bus Alex Casola Lantern reporter From traditional bluegrass, to newgrass and now â&#x20AC;&#x153;trashgrass,â&#x20AC;? the Rumpke Mountain Boys is bringing its ever-evolving style to Columbus. The band is slated to perform at 9 p.m. Friday at Woodlands Tavern. Vocalist and banjo player Jason Wolf said the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style of music has moved away from traditional bluegrass and the group has created a new genre for itself, which it likes to call â&#x20AC;&#x153;trashgrass,â&#x20AC;? in reference to many styles of music thrown together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a melting pot of all different kinds of stuff,â&#x20AC;? Wolf said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone brings a little spice.â&#x20AC;? Wolf said the band name came accidentally after a few open mic nights with his friends in Cincinnati. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I actually started the band a long time ago,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My friends and I made up parody names and it (was) kind of meant to be a joke. Somehow (Rumpke Mountain Boys) stuck.â&#x20AC;? Wolf said most bluegrass bands name themselves based on the geography of the region theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re based. As a mountain-lover in Cincinnati, Wolf said, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one elevated area to choose from there. Rumpke Sanitary Landfill is located just north of Cincinnati and is one of the largest landfills in the United States. Its nicknames include Mount Rumpke and Rumpke Mountain. Vocalist and guitarist Adam Copeland, vocalist and mandolin player Ben Gourley and vocalist and bassist J.D. Westmoreland also comprise the band that Wolf founded 10 years ago. Its newest album â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trashgrassâ&#x20AC;? released Friday.

being sold at CD release parties. The band, however, is aiming to release songs online and iTunes in the next year. Everyone in the band sings and contributes to writing songs, and Wolf said this creates a mixed taste of music. He said he writes about whiskey, mountains and love gone wrong while other members produce lyrics about campfires and philosophy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things I like is that they all sing and write. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare to find that,â&#x20AC;? Huckaby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not the type of band that plays for an hour-and-a-half. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play all weekend. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come across another band with drive, ambition and passion.â&#x20AC;? Stephanie Roe, a fourth-year in strategic communications and member of the Ohio State chapter of the Music & Entertainment Industry Student Association (MEISA), said she has worked with Dave Weissman, the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s publicist, through MEISA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(MEISA) promotes all things local music with the hopes that students realize there is more than just top 40 out there,â&#x20AC;? Roe said in an email, and added she appreciates the Rumpke Mountain Boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; style of music and performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bluegrass is a very underrated genre of music,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not a lot of people, especially college-age students, realize that, and with the Rumpke Mountain Boys, hopefully that perception can change.â&#x20AC;? Huckaby said he sees a big future for Rumpke Mountain Boys. Wolf echoed that and said the band is pushing to put out two to three albums in the next few years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know us, you should, and if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard of us, you will,â&#x20AC;? Wolf said. Tickets for Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show are $10 through the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. Woodlands Tavern is located at 1200 W. Third St. and the show is open to audiences 21 and up.

Rumpke Mountain Boys is scheduled to perform Nov. 9 at Woodlands Tavern. Jason Huckaby, band manager, said the group wanted to take a different approach on this album, implementing music from one of its live shows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The final product represents what they do,â&#x20AC;? Huckaby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was our goal.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trashgrassâ&#x20AC;? is also the first album produced with the present lineup of band members, which was finalized with the addition of Westmoreland in Nov. 2011, and is only

Stone from 8A â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a distribution deal so I would sell them online and then I would sell them at shows,â&#x20AC;? Stone said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was definitely a difficult thing to do.â&#x20AC;? Conan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien welcomed Stone on his late-night talk show â&#x20AC;&#x153;Conanâ&#x20AC;? Oct. 26, 2011, for his national television debut. He said playing on that large of a stage was â&#x20AC;&#x153;nerve-racking as hell.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You go into kind of a cold room and everyone is told to give you applause and, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weird,â&#x20AC;? Stone said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the easiest place to perform, but it was a huge blessing and a great opportunity.â&#x20AC;?

The Whigs is scheduled to perform Nov. 12 at The Basement.

The Whigs from 8A about the voice and I really love that guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (Gispert) voice,â&#x20AC;? Cummans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty excited to play with the band and I think this is perfect because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a great band and we all really like them.â&#x20AC;? Formed in 2011, Chicago-based Ballroom Boxer draws inspiration from artists such as the Gaslight Anthem, The Strokes and Bruce Springsteen. Ballroom Boxerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name stemmed from several elements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really liked the dichotomy of two kind of contrasting ideas of the gracefulness of a ballroom dancer and the grittiness of a 1930s boxer,â&#x20AC;? said drummer Dave Altier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when Dave and Mike (Altier, guitarist and vocalist) dance they look like boxers,â&#x20AC;? Cummans added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They put their fists up and we always make fun of them.â&#x20AC;? Cummans said that during its live performances, energy is the main focus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us personally, (itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great) to watch a band that really gets into it and moves around,â&#x20AC;? Cummans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the biggest thing we try to convey, we just try to make it a good time for everyone. We like to see everyone dancing and we like to dance ourselves so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just all about that movement.â&#x20AC;? For Gispert, keeping the audience entertained is The Whigsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; objective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Entertainment is the goal. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well worth it to go out to shows (rather than) sitting at home watching TV or playing video games,â&#x20AC;? Gispert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just nothing that is more exciting to me than going to see a good rock show.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show can be purchased at the door for $12. Kuroma is also slated to perform as an opener.

After that opportunity more performances for major audiences proceeded, including on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jimmy Kimmel Liveâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last Call with Carson Daly.â&#x20AC;? Since these performances, Stone signed with ATO Records. This is Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first tour under ATO Records, and it kicked off Labor Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kind of felt like I hit a ceiling a little bit and that was kind of the point where I felt this was the right time to go the label,â&#x20AC;? Stone said. His self-titled album and first album under ATO released July 31. Tickets for Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show can be purchased in advance through Ticketmaster and on the day of the show at The Basement for $15.50.
