Cheerleaders Â Help Â With Â Sandy Â Relief By Â Jennifer Â Newman Â Contributing Â Writer Â | Â N02514746@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
The Â New Â Paltz Â Cheerleading Â team Â has Â taken Â action Â to Â help Â those Â affected Â by Â Superstorm Â San-Â dy. Sandy Â hit Â the Â east Â coast Â on Â Monday, Â Oct. Â 29, Â damaging Â homes Â and Â causing Â power Â outages Â in Â New Â York, Â New Â Jersey Â and Â other Â parts Â of Â the Â Northeast. In Â response, Â the Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â Cheer-Â leading Â team Â has Â been Â taking Â collections Â for Â those Â affected Â in Â Rockaway Â and Â Breezy Â Point Â since Â their Â drive Â last Â Monday, Â Nov. Â 5, Â in Â the Â Student Â Union, Â Â Alicia Â Saia, Â a Â fourth-Âyear Â communication Â disorders Â major Â and Â co-Âcaptain Â of Â the Â cheerlead-Â ing Â team Â said. The Â team Â is Â accepting Â anything Â students Â can Â give, Â but Â the Â families Â who Â are Â now Â without Â homes Â are Â in Â dire Â need Â of Â warm Â clothing, Â blankets, Â non-Â SHULVKDEOH IRRGV ZDWHU EDWWHULHV Ă€DVKOLJKWV gloves, Â garbage Â bags, Â cleaning Â supplies Â and Â over-Âthe-Âcounter Â medications, Â Â Ashley Â Rosado, Â a Â fourth-Âyear Â communication Â disorders Â major Â and Â co-Âcaptain Â of Â the Â cheerleading Â team Â said. â€œAbout Â half Â of Â our Â team Â members Â are Â from Â Long Â Island, Â Staten Â Island Â or Â Queens, Â so Â a Â lot Â of Â us Â have Â close Â friends Â and Â relatives Â that Â were Â af-Â IHFWHGÂ´5RVDGRVDLGÂł,WLVYHU\GLIÂżFXOWWRKHDU about Â family Â and Â friends Â dealing Â with Â the Â after-Â math Â of Â the Â storm Â and Â not Â being Â able Â to Â be Â there Â with Â them Â for Â the Â clean-Âup.â€?

Â However, Â she Â said Â another Â drop Â off Â will Â be Â scheduled Â once Â more Â supplies Â are Â collected. Some Â students Â have Â responded Â negatively Â to Â drives Â on Â campus Â due Â to Â time Â and Â money Â con-Â straints Â like Â Rachel Â Notle, Â a Â second-Âyear Â art Â ma-Â
jor. â€œI Â think Â that Â itâ€™s Â nice Â that Â all Â these Â clubs Â are Â trying Â to Â do Â fundraisers, Â but Â I Â think Â itâ€™s Â frustrat-Â ing Â because Â something Â thatâ€™s Â their Â personal Â cause Â like Â Sandy, Â does Â not Â necessarily Â mean Â itâ€™s Â every-Â one Â elseâ€™s Â cause,â€? Â Nolte Â said. Â â€œAs Â college Â stu-Â dents Â with Â not Â that Â much Â extra Â money, Â itâ€™s Â kind Â of Â obnoxious Â to Â expect Â us Â to Â drop Â everything Â for Â their Â cause.â€? Even Â though Â some Â students Â believe Â it Â is Â hard Â to Â donate Â in Â college, Â having Â a Â large Â organization Â like Â the Â cheerleading Â team Â helps Â to Â get Â the Â word Â out Â about Â funds Â needed, Â Saia Â said. Â â€œWe Â held Â this Â fundraiser Â because Â we Â under-Â stand Â how Â in Â need Â families Â are Â right Â now,â€? Â she Â said. Â â€œIf Â we Â are Â able Â to Â assist Â anyone Â in Â any Â way, Â we Â want Â to.â€?
Printing Â Quotas Â Reinforced Â On Â Campus By Â Elyse Â Hennes Copy Â Editor Â | Â Ehennes24@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
In Â an Â email Â sent Â out Â on Â Friday, Â Nov. Â 9, Â As-Â sistant Â Vice Â President Â of Â Technology Â Jonathan Â Lewit Â addressed Â the Â issue Â of Â students Â overprinting Â on Â campus. In Â his Â email, Â Lewit Â explained Â that Â the Â print Â quota Â system Â was Â implemented Â in Â order Â for Â stu-Â dents Â to Â be Â mindful Â about Â the Â amount Â of Â printing Â being Â used. Â He Â said Â the Â 400 Â pages Â or Â $40 Â given Â were Â considered Â a Â reasonable Â amount Â to Â use Â over Â the Â course Â of Â one Â semester, Â and Â that Â this Â is Â â€œenough Â to Â do Â your Â work Â and Â keep Â our Â overall Â ex-Â penses Â reasonable.â€? However, Â a Â growing Â number Â of Â students Â are Â printing Â two Â or Â more Â times Â their Â quota, Â with Â some Â exceeding Â it Â exponentially, Â Lewit Â said. Â To Â remedy Â this Â situation, Â he Â said Â students Â will Â have Â to Â start Â paying Â for Â printing Â that Â exceeds Â the Â given Â amount Â per Â semester. Â The Â email Â said Â each Â student Â will Â have Â their Â quota Â increased Â by Â $10, Â because Â the Â change Â oc-Â curred Â in Â the Â middle Â of Â a Â semester. In Â addition, Â an Â area Â will Â be Â added Â to Â
Red Â Cross Â Shelter Â Set Â Up Â During Â Sandy Â
my.newpaltz.edu Â where Â students Â will Â be Â able Â to Â purchase Â additional Â pages. Â Students Â will Â also Â be Â able Â to Â purchase Â print Â quota Â cards Â in Â the Â Parking Â 2IÂżFHLQWKHEDVHPHQWRIWKH6WXGHQW8QLRQLQ $5 Â or Â $10 Â increments. Â According Â to Â the Â email, Â beginning Â in Â the Â spring Â semester, Â the Â quota Â system Â will Â be Â in Â place Â and Â everyone Â will Â have Â their Â start-Âup Â quota Â set Â to Â $50 Â â€” Â which Â includes Â the Â original Â $40 Â quota Â plus Â a Â $10 Â increment Â to Â pre-Âcompensate Â people Â for Â inevitable Â printer Â errors. Â Because Â of Â the Â pre-Â compensation, Â there Â will Â be Â no Â refunds Â for Â printer Â or Â print Â job Â failures Â next Â semester. â€œThe Â reason Â to Â bump Â up Â the Â quota Â is Â that Â we Â are Â seeing Â a Â surprising Â number Â of Â times Â that Â peo-Â ple Â seem Â to Â have Â printing Â problems Â and Â request Â a Â credit,â€? Â Lewit Â said. Â â€œRather Â than Â deal Â with Â lots Â of Â individual Â cases, Â we Â just Â bumped Â up Â everyoneâ€™s Â limit.â€? In Â addition, Â Lewit Â reminded Â students Â that Â when Â you Â send Â a Â complicated Â PDF Â to Â a Â printer Â it Â may Â take Â a Â minute Â or Â so Â to Â print. Â Lewit Â said Â the Â printing Â problems Â on Â campus Â seem Â to Â be Â a Â combi-Â nation Â of Â real Â printer Â issues Â and Â people Â who Â send Â
long Â PDFs Â to Â printers Â and Â decide Â not Â to Â wait Â the Â minute Â or Â two Â it Â takes Â for Â them Â to Â print Â and Â then Â send Â it Â again. First-Âyear Â communication Â disorders Â major Â Kristin Â Rowe Â does Â not Â believe Â there Â should Â be Â a Â limit Â on Â how Â much Â students Â can Â print. â€œCollege Â students Â have Â a Â lot Â of Â different Â es-Â says Â they Â need Â to Â write,â€? Â Rowe Â said. Â â€œA Â limit Â on Â paper Â may Â restrict Â the Â amount Â and Â as Â a Â result, Â the Â quantity Â of Â their Â papers.â€? In Â comparison, Â fourth-Âyear Â math Â major Â Dan-Â iel Â Najjar Â believes Â the Â print Â quota Â on Â campus Â is Â a Â good Â idea Â because Â it Â keeps Â people Â from Â printing Â too Â much. Â Najjar Â said Â 500 Â pages Â are Â enough Â for Â a Â majority Â of Â students. Â However, Â people Â who Â take Â many Â classes Â and Â are Â required Â to Â print Â out Â excess Â amounts Â or Â to Â write Â a Â lot Â of Â essays Â should Â be Â given Â more Â pages, Â he Â said. Â Lewit Â said Â most Â students Â print Â much Â fewer Â than Â 400 Â pages, Â while Â some Â print Â only Â a Â small Â amount Â more Â and Â others Â print Â a Â lot Â more. Â â€œThe Â print Â quota Â change Â just Â makes Â the Â ones Â who Â print Â a Â lot Â more Â actually Â pay Â for Â it, Â while Â the Â ones Â who Â print Â less Â are Â unchanged,â€? Â Lewit Â said

The Â Athletic Â and Â Wellness Â Center Â and Â the Â Red Â Cross Â set Â up Â a Â shelter Â in Â Elting Â Gym Â for Â the Â New Â Paltz Â community Â and Â residents Â during Â Su-Â perstorm Â Sandy. Â The Â shelter Â housed Â 11 Â residents Â on Â Mon-Â day, Â Oct. Â 29. Â The Â shelter Â was Â set Â up Â due Â to Â the Â prediction Â of Â heavy Â winds Â and Â rain Â that Â threat-Â HQHGWRFDXVHSRZHURXWDJHVĂ€RRGLQJDQGRWKHU damages. â€œThe Â primary Â purpose Â of Â a Â Red Â Cross Â shel-Â ter Â is Â to Â provide Â a Â safe Â but Â temporary Â place Â for Â people Â to Â take Â refuge Â from Â disasters Â if Â they Â have Â nowhere Â to Â go,â€? Â Rachel Â Altvater, Â a Â fourth-Âyear Â creative Â writing Â major Â and Â Red Â Cross Â volunteer Â said. Â Altvater Â was Â one Â of Â the Â six Â students Â who Â signed Â up Â through Â the Â Department Â of Â Disaster Â studies Â to Â work Â with Â the Â Dutchess Â County Â Red Â Cross Â during Â the Â storm. Â â€œVolunteers Â can Â generally Â be Â expected Â to Â assist Â with Â setting Â up Â and Â breaking Â down Â shel-Â ters, Â serving Â food Â and Â interacting Â with Â the Â shelter Â occupants Â as Â needed,â€? Â Altvater Â said. Â The Â shelter Â has Â the Â opportunity Â to Â open Â on Â campus Â because Â of Â an Â agreement Â formed Â by Â the Â Red Â Cross, Â the Â Ulster Â County Â Emergency Â Coor-Â dinator Â and Â the Â town Â of Â New Â Paltz. Â This Â agree-Â ment Â was Â monitored Â on Â campus Â by Â Mike Â Malloy, Â the Â director Â of Â Environmental Â Health Â & Â Safety Â and Â David Â Dugatkin, Â university Â police Â chief. Â â€œThe Â Red Â Cross Â through Â the Â Ulster Â County Â Emergency Â Coordinator Â reaches Â out Â to Â us Â for Â the Â availability Â of Â that Â shelter Â space Â prior Â or Â during Â a Â local Â event Â when Â they Â are Â determining Â their Â shelter Â needs Â across Â the Â county Â or Â state,â€? Â Mal-Â loy Â said. Stuart Â Robinson, Â director Â of Â athletics Â on Â campus, Â supervised Â the Â space Â to Â make Â sure Â ev-Â erything Â was Â running Â smoothly. Â â€œWe Â only Â provide Â the Â space Â for Â the Â Red Â Cross Â to Â set Â everything Â up,â€? Â Robinson Â said. Â â€œIt Â is Â their Â job Â to Â bring Â equipment, Â and Â then Â leave Â it Â the Â way Â it Â was Â found.â€? Â Robinson Â said Â staff Â from Â the Â Red Â Cross Â were Â brought Â in Â from Â different Â areas Â of Â the Â Unit-Â ed Â States Â to Â help Â out. Â They Â brought Â cots, Â food Â and Â medical Â equipment. Although Â all Â residents Â were Â welcomed Â to Â take Â cover Â in Â the Â shelter, Â animals Â were Â not Â permitted. Â The Â shelter Â suggested Â those Â tak-Â LQJ DGYDQWDJH RI WKH VKHOWHUÂśV EHQHÂżWV VKRXOG bring Â their Â pets Â to Â local Â veterinarians Â and Â kennels, Â Altvater Â said. Â The Â day Â after Â Sandy, Â the Â shelter Â closed.

The Â 54th Â student Â senate Â held Â their Â 10th Â meeting Â on Â Tuesday, Â Nov. Â 13 Â in Â Student Â Union Â (SU) Â 418. College Â President Â Donald Â Christian Â opened Â the Â meeting Â with Â his Â presentation Â on Â the Â Park Â Point Â development Â to Â clarify Â misunderstandings Â and Â misconceptions Â students Â may Â have Â had Â about Â the Â project. â€œI Â hope Â I Â can Â help Â you Â separate Â fact Â from Â as-Â sertion Â and Â innuendo Â and Â rumors, Â some Â of Â which Â is Â not Â true,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œI Â want Â to Â emphasize Â how Â much Â this Â project Â means Â to Â the Â college Â and Â how Â much Â weâ€™re Â interested Â in Â advocating Â for Â it.â€? Christian Â said Â there Â has Â been Â no Â on-Âcampus Â housing Â for Â transfers Â since Â 2007, Â and Â that Â the Â goal Â of Â Park Â Point Â is Â to Â provide Â more Â housing Â for Â transfers, Â faculty Â and Â students Â who Â are Â looking Â to Â move Â off Â campus.

He Â also Â said Â that Â as Â the Â market Â for Â education Â becomes Â more Â competitive, Â Park Â Point Â is Â essen-Â tial Â for Â the Â collegeâ€™s Â future. Â Christian Â said Â these Â apartments Â are Â not Â con-Â sidered Â â€œluxuryâ€?

Proposed Â Salary Â Increase Â For Â Supervisor Â Declined By Â Rachel Â Freeman Managing Â Editor Â | Â Rachel.Freeman17@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
The Â New Â Paltz Â Town Â Board Â re-Â cently Â denied Â a Â proposed Â salary Â increase Â for Â Town Â Supervisor Â Susan Â Zimet, Â but Â granted Â her Â two Â annual Â stipends Â for Â her Â extra Â time Â and Â efforts. After Â stepping Â in Â to Â clean Â up Â the Â budget Â problems Â left Â by Â previous Â su-Â pervisor Â Toni Â Hokanson, Â Zimet Â said Â she Â asked Â for Â $70,000, Â almost Â a Â $20,000 Â in-Â crease, Â but Â will Â instead Â receive Â two Â sti-Â pends Â of Â $9,607 Â for Â this Â year Â and Â next Â to Â compensate Â for Â her Â extra Â work. Having Â served Â as Â supervisor Â from Â 1996 Â to Â 2000 Â and Â continuing Â to Â work Â in Â politics, Â Zimet Â said Â she Â thought Â she Â knew Â what Â to Â expect Â from Â the Â job, Â but Â found Â herself Â in Â an Â unfamiliar Â situation. â€œI Â was Â coming Â back Â 13 Â years Â later Â a Â lot Â wiser Â about Â what Â it Â takes Â to Â be Â a Â supervisor, Â so Â I Â sort Â of Â knew Â what Â the Â workload Â would Â be, Â but Â I Â did Â not Â expect Â to Â walk Â into Â a Â absolute Â disaster,â€? Â Zi-Â met Â said. Â â€œIt Â was Â sort Â of Â like Â a Â tsunami Â LQ WHUPV RI WKH ÂżQDQFLDO ZHOOEHLQJ RI the Â town, Â the Â bookkeeping, Â collecting Â money Â that Â was Â owed, Â following Â up Â on Â grants Â that Â were Â owed Â and Â a Â lot Â of Â other Â problems.â€? Zimet Â said Â she Â was Â comfortable Â with Â the Â amount Â of Â work Â she Â anticipated Â from Â the Â job Â and Â its Â pay, Â as Â she Â would Â still Â be Â able Â to Â work Â on Â other Â projects, Â but Â found Â herself Â working Â constantly Â to Â JHWWKHWRZQRQÂłVROLGÂżQDQFLDOJURXQGÂ´ hindering Â her Â ability Â to Â work Â on Â other Â things Â she Â had Â planned Â on.
Rather Â than Â helping Â the Â town Â prog-Â ress, Â Zimet Â said Â she Â is Â picking Â up Â the Â pieces Â of Â the Â last Â administration, Â help-Â ing Â the Â town Â and Â taxpayers Â receive Â the Â resources Â theyâ€™re Â entitled Â to Â and Â making Â sure Â everything Â is Â complacent Â and Â legal. â€œIâ€™m Â now Â basically Â picking Â up Â all Â the Â loose Â ends, Â tying Â them Â all Â together Â and Â trying Â to Â close Â out Â the Â work Â that Â had Â EHHQ GRQH ÂżOH LW DZD\ DV , PRYH IRU-Â ward Â with Â all Â the Â work Â that Â Iâ€™m Â trying Â to Â do Â for Â the Â town Â going Â forward,â€? Â Zimet Â said. $IWHUKHUÂżUVWIHZPRQWKVLQRIÂżFH Zimet Â said Â she Â told Â Councilman Â Kevin Â Barry Â and Â Councilwoman Â Jean Â Gallucci, Â whom Â she Â had Â ran Â with, Â that Â she Â needed Â to Â cut Â back Â on Â the Â number Â of Â hours Â she Â was Â spending Â because Â she Â was Â not Â being Â paid Â for Â them. Â She Â said Â Barry Â and Â Gal-Â lucci Â encouraged Â her Â to Â continue Â doing Â what Â she Â had Â to Â and Â that Â they Â needed Â to Â get Â her Â more Â money. When Â the Â time Â came Â to Â put Â in Â mon-Â ey Â for Â raises, Â Zimet Â said Â although Â it Â was Â GLIÂżFXOW VKH IHOW LW ZDV ULJKW RI KHU WR ask Â for Â a Â raise. â€œI Â decided Â that Â for Â the Â amount Â of Â work Â I Â was Â doing Â and Â for Â all Â the Â prob-Â lems Â I Â was Â taking Â care Â of Â and Â for Â the Â experience Â I Â was Â bringing, Â I Â felt Â that Â I Â deserved Â the Â money Â and Â I Â put Â in Â for Â it,â€? Â Zimet Â said. Although Â Zimet Â said Â the Â board Â did Â not Â dispute Â her Â value, Â some Â members Â worried Â about Â what Â would Â happen Â if Â she Â did Â not Â run Â again. Â She Â said Â there Â was Â concern Â about Â having Â a Â higher Â salary Â

for Â someone Â who Â might Â not Â do Â as Â much Â work Â as Â she Â currently Â is. What Â was Â recommended Â and Â voted Â on Â by Â the Â majority Â of Â the Â board Â was Â al-Â lowing Â the Â two Â stipends Â to Â cover Â her Â ex-Â tra Â work Â this Â year Â and Â the Â work Â needed Â for Â next Â year Â based Â on Â the Â State Â Comp-Â trollerâ€™s Â Report Â released Â in Â October, Â which Â showed Â a Â multitude Â of Â issues. While Â the Â idea Â of Â the Â stipends Â won Â out Â over Â the Â salary Â increase, Â Council-Â woman Â Kitty Â Brown Â said Â she Â voted Â the Â opposite Â way. â€œI Â voted Â for Â a Â 3 Â percent Â salary Â in-Â crease Â because Â that Â is Â consistent Â with Â the Â maximum Â level Â of Â raise Â we Â have Â given Â for Â the Â 11 Â years Â I Â have Â served Â on Â the Â Town Â Council,â€? Â Brown Â said. Â â€œI Â voted Â against Â the Â stipend Â because Â it Â sets Â a Â dan-Â

Though Â she Â is Â happy Â about Â the Â com-Â pensation Â of Â the Â stipends, Â Zimet Â said Â she Â does Â not Â regret Â asking Â for Â a Â salary Â increase. â€œIâ€™m Â not Â going Â to Â apologize Â for Â what Â Iâ€™ve Â done Â because Â I Â really Â truly Â believe Â that Â nobody Â would Â have Â walked Â in, Â taken Â on Â what Â I Â took Â on, Â did Â what Â Iâ€™ve Â done, Â accomplished Â what Â Iâ€™ve Â ac-Â complished, Â solved Â as Â many Â problems Â as Â Iâ€™ve Â solved,â€?

The New Paltz Oracle
By Maria Jayne News Editor | Maria.firstname.lastname@example.org
The New York State School Boards Association recently honored New Paltz Central School District with the “Be the Change for Kids 2012 Innovation Award” for the district’s K12 Green Classrooms project. The Green Classroom project is com- prised of organic gardens at New Paltz Middle School and High School and Du- zine and Lenape Elementary schools, Jim O’Dowd, a member of the Health Advisory Committee that brought this project into fruition, said. Superintendent Maria Rice said in a press release from the school district that the projects, known as the K12 Gardens, are all externally funded and maintained through donations and grants and are simi- ODU WR VWXGHQWV ³WDNLQJ D ¿HOG WULS ZLWKRXW leaving school grounds.” “The K12 Gardens provide interdisci- plinary and project-based opportunities for our students to learn through direct, hands- on experiences throughout their entire edu- cational career,” Rice said. O’Dowd said although the K12 Gar- dens might consist of fruits and vegetables they are not necessarily for food, but are ac- tually a hybrid of a “classroom/laboratory”
where students can experience what it takes WRJHWSODQWVWRJURZIURPVHHGVWRWKH¿Q- ished product. “[The project] seemed like a good way of equating children with the fact that food doesn’t just come in plastic containers and it’s something they can touch and see,” O’Dowd said. “By seeing them be a part of the whole natural process of watching plants grow they might feel more comfort- able trying vegetables and trying different food options.” Although this program is being recog- nized now, O’Dowd said he introduced this idea to the committee more than four years ago after reading about similar projects at other schools and speaking with a teacher/ farmer that works for the Brook Farm proj- ect in New Paltz. Following this meeting, he said, the project was incorporated into the commit- tee’s Wellness Action Plan and started at the middle school. O’Dowd said the gardening program expanded to other schools in the district af- ter two years due to the interests of parents, students and especially teachers. “Teachers have used [the gardens] in innovative ways to actually teach math and science and art,” he said. “Some of the teachers have taken this project and run

with it, without the teachers there wouldn’t be gardens at Duzine and Lenape.” Rice said she has faith that the K12 Gardens are meeting their goal of fostering a positive learning environment for each student in all four schools in the New Paltz district. “We have met our prime objective to bring a basic awareness to children of healthy plant-based food options while at the same time helping students gain knowl- edge in science, literacy, social studies,
nutrition and the environment,” Rice said in the press release. “The development of the K12 Green Classroom in our schools underscores our dedication to the district’s vision to help our students become citizens of the world who are responsible, ethical, contributing, participating members of lo- cal, national and global communities who value all peoples and care about each other, respecting the environment, working to im- prove the society in which we live and un- derstanding our role in it.”
SAP Committee Members Nominated To Board By Clarissa Moses Assistant Copy Editor | Cmoses59@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
After Student Association Produc- tions (SAP) nominations, the Council of Organizations nominated four can- didates to run for the remaining three seats on the SAP committee. “Unfortunately we have been go- ing through this process for a while this semester and we still have spots open,” Council of Organizations Chair Rose Faber said. Faber said the SAP committee, which consists of 10 students works on large-scale entertainment events. Dur- ing the meeting, she encouraged people to join if they were unhappy with the events last semester. She said that those who do not want to be on the board are welcome to volunteer during the events.
“Normally the big thing that SAP puts on is the concert which happens in the spring but already this semester there are things that we are working on,” Faber said. To begin the nominations, Faber asked each candidate to introduce them- selves to the council and discuss a brief reason why they thought they would be a positive addition to the SAP commit- tee. The candidates included Natalie Skoblow, Elizabeth Pinto, Brittany Jor- dan and Rachel Toy, all of whom were self-nominated. Skoblow discussed her public rela- tions major and music major that com- bined she said “sort of creates music management.” She said her background is helpful for the SAP committee and her good leadership skills can also be an
asset. Toy said as a new student she would like to get more involved with the school and she was interested in helping to plan events on campus. She said that she held jobs in the past which may help her work well on the SAP committee. Unlike Toy, Pinto said she has expe- rience with the SAP committee through volunteering for the SAP events last year. She said she enjoyed her experi- ence with the SAP committee last year and decided that she wanted to become more involved with SAP. Jordan said she wanted to be a part of SAP because she loves music and wants to be more involved on campus. She said she will listen to students’ con- cerns to help address any issues that may arise.

Oladoyin Olanrewaju said she is look- ing forward to seeing what events SAP will hold once the committee is com- plete. “I think it is very good that they took the initiative to nominate them- selves for SAP,” Olanrewaju said. “SAP is very important because they plan one of our biggest events, the spring concert. I hope this SAP committee works their hardest to make sure students’ wants are heard.” Following the nominations, Pinto and Skoblow were elected to the SAP committee during the senate meeting on Tuesday Nov. 13, leaving one seat left to be claimed. “It’s a lot of work to be on the com- mittee,” Faber said. “If you are willing to do it and get up there that’s one step that’s amazing to do.”

The Â Town Â Of Â New Â Paltz Â Renews Â Overdue Â Cable Â Contract By Â Caterina Â De Â Gaetano Copy Â Editor Â | Â Cdegateano64@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu
After Â a Â seven-Âyear Â dispute Â between Â the Â Town Â of Â New Â Paltz Â and Â Time Â Warner Â Cable, Â the Â company Â has Â agreed Â to Â return Â the Â unused Â line-Âextension Â funds Â once Â a Â new Â 10-Âyear Â contract Â is Â approved Â by Â the Â State Â Public Â Service Â Commission. The Â Town Â Public Â Access Â Advisory Â Committee Â and Â Time Â Warner Â Cable Â created Â a Â written Â agreement Â in Â December Â 2011 Â un-Â der Â then Â Town Â Supervisor Â Toni Â Hokanson Â that Â said Â the Â money Â would Â be Â returned Â to Â the Â town Â in Â a Â fund Â for Â educational Â public Â access, Â but Â the Â company Â went Â back Â on Â their Â word, Â Committee Â Chair Â Don Â Kerr Â said. Â Â A Â year Â later, Â David Â Lent, Â a Â member Â of Â the Â Public Â Access Â Advisory Â Commit-Â tee Â said Â the Â committee Â and Â current Â Town Â Supervisor Â Susan Â Zimet Â informed Â Time Â Warner Â that Â they Â would Â seek Â legal Â action Â against Â the Â company. â€œIn Â 2012, Â Susan Â Zimet Â and Â I Â turned Â up Â the Â heat,â€?

Lent, Â who Â served Â as Â town Â supervisor Â in Â 1995 Â when Â the Â original Â 10-Âyear Â contract Â ZDV ÂżUVW LQLWLDOL]HG VDLG GXULQJ WKH ODVW year, Â numerous Â issues Â the Â town Â had Â with Â the Â contract, Â such Â as Â franchise Â fees Â and Â lan-Â guage Â of Â the Â contract, Â had Â been Â resolved. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â However Â when Â Time Â Warner Â decided Â they Â would Â only Â return Â the Â unused Â line-Â extension Â funds Â if Â they Â had Â control Â over Â its Â use Â the Â Public Â Access Â Advisory Â Committee Â and Â Town Â Board Â ceased Â the Â then Â six-Âyear Â overdue Â contract Â renewal. Â â€œThe Â committee Â and Â Town Â Board Â at Â the Â time Â said, Â â€˜No Â wayâ€™,â€? Â Lent Â said. Â â€œâ€˜We Â arenâ€™t Â going Â to Â let Â you Â sit Â on Â the Â money Â and Â tell Â the Â town Â how Â to Â spend Â it.â€™â€? Â Lent Â said Â Zimet Â received Â a Â letter Â two Â weeks Â ago Â from Â Time Â Warnerâ€™s Â attorney Â stating Â that Â the Â company Â wanted Â to Â settle Â the Â disagreement, Â return Â the Â money Â and Â set Â up Â a Â new Â 10-Âyear Â contract. Â â€œThe Â Town Â Board Â will Â move Â ahead Â and Â sign Â the Â contract,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œWe Â still Â have Â to Â identify Â a Â third Â contract Â and Â channel.â€? Kerr Â said Â the Â Town Â has Â proposed Â to Â set Â aside Â $22,000 Â of Â the Â $208,000 Â for Â pub-Â lic Â access Â equipment, Â and Â the Â rest Â will Â go Â into Â the Â general Â fund Â Zimet Â and Â the Â Town Â

Council Â will Â decide Â how Â to Â use. Â Under Â the Â old Â franchise Â agreement, Â however, Â Time Â Warner Â Cable Â would Â pro-Â vide Â the Â town Â and Â village Â with Â $30,000 Â worth Â of Â equipment Â to Â support Â public Â ac-Â cess, Â but Â that Â money Â would Â be Â charged Â back Â to Â Time Â Warner Â Cable Â customers Â in Â the Â bills Â over Â time, Â Kerr Â said. Â The Â Town Â has Â agreed Â to Â take Â any Â equipment Â money Â from Â the Â $250,000, Â he Â said. Â Although Â Kerr Â is Â excited Â this Â issue Â has Â been Â put Â behind Â the Â town Â and Â they Â can Â
begin Â a Â new Â contract Â with Â the Â company, Â he Â said Â it Â was Â ultimately Â all Â about Â a Â large Â corporation Â trying Â to Â avoid Â â€œa Â large Â payout Â negotiated Â by Â their Â predecessors.â€? Â Zimet Â is Â expected Â to Â sign Â the Â con-Â tract Â within Â the Â next Â few Â weeks Â after Â it Â is Â reviewed Â and Â approved Â by Â the Â state, Â Lent Â said. â€œWe Â believe Â everything Â is Â settled, Â but Â >LWLVQÂśWFRQÂżUPHG@XQWLO\RXUHDGWKHGRFX-Â ments, Â get Â a Â signature Â on Â itâ€Śit Â takes Â some Â time,â€?

garden Â event Â is Â and Â programs Â that Â will Â help Â them Â be-Â come Â better Â gardeners,â€? Â Norton Â said. Glembocki Â said Â the Â HVGA Â differs Â from Â traditional Â garden Â clubs Â because Â of Â its Â scope. Â She Â said Â other Â gar-Â den Â clubs Â gather Â individuals Â from Â hyper-Âlocal Â areas Â while Â HVGA Â aims Â to Â bring Â together Â garden Â enthusiasts Â from Â all Â over Â the Â Hudson Â Valley Â and Â create Â programs Â that Â are Â not Â provided Â at Â garden Â clubs. Â A Â paid Â membership Â program Â is Â being Â developed Â as Â well Â as Â trips Â to Â gardens Â across Â the Â Hudson Â Valley. Â According Â to Â the Â website, Â the Â organization Â will Â also Â develop Â classroom Â garden Â curricula Â for Â teachers Â and Â to Â foster Â the Â creation, Â maintenance Â and Â renovation Â of Â public Â garden Â spaces. Â Wilson Â said Â she Â hopes Â to Â continue Â developing Â this Â idea Â while Â sparking Â the Â interest Â of Â younger Â generations Â to Â â€œinject Â some Â young Â bloodâ€? Â into Â the Â gardening Â com-Â munity. Â Though Â she Â has Â received Â warnings Â about Â start-Â LQJDQRQSURÂżWRUJDQL]DWLRQLQDOHVVWKDQLGHDOHFRQR-Â my, Â Wilson Â said Â she Â isnâ€™t Â worried. â€œI Â believe Â wholeheartedly Â that Â the Â timing Â of Â the Â organization Â is Â great,â€? Â Wilson Â said. Â â€œYou Â know, Â ev-Â erybody Â says Â â€˜eh, Â the Â economy, Â youâ€™re Â starting Â a Â non-Â SURÂżWÂś7KDWGRHVQÂśWFRQFHUQPH,WKLQNWKHLQWHUHVWLQ gardening Â is Â absolutely Â [on] Â the Â rise.â€? The Â next Â meeting Â will Â be Â held Â on Â Thursday, Â Dec. Â 13 Â at Â 7 Â p.m. Â at Â Shawangunk Â Town Â Hall. Â
The Â founders Â of Â the Â Hudson Â Valley Â Garden Â Asso-Â ciation Â (HVGA) Â are Â planning Â to Â spread Â the Â organiza-Â tionâ€™s Â roots Â to Â help Â garden Â enthusiasts Â nurse Â their Â bud-Â ding Â interests. Â Laura Â Wilson Â and Â Rebecca Â Glembocki Â met Â sev-Â eral Â years Â ago Â at Â Hodgson Â Farm Â & Â Garden Â Center Â in Â Walden, Â N.Y., Â where Â Wilson Â was Â the Â manager. Â After Â bonding Â over Â their Â mutual Â love Â of Â gardening Â and Â the Â Hudson Â Valley, Â they Â kept Â in Â touch Â as Â their Â career Â paths Â changed. Â Wilson Â created Â the Â Hudson Â Valley Â Garden Â Calen-Â dar, Â a Â website Â dedicated Â to Â promoting Â local Â gardening Â events. â€œI Â wanted Â to Â give Â back Â to Â the Â community Â in Â some Â gardening Â way Â and Â I Â just Â decided Â instead Â of Â donating Â my Â time Â to Â one Â group Â or Â one Â gardener, Â I Â could Â do Â this Â website Â and Â help Â everybody Â by Â giving Â them Â free Â pro-Â motion Â and Â free Â advertising,â€? Â Wilson Â said. Â The Â website Â was Â a Â catalyst Â for Â HVGA, Â Wilson Â said, Â and Â she Â hopes Â to Â showcase Â local Â garden-Âcentric Â businesses Â through Â events Â and Â social Â media Â platforms Â like Â Facebook Â and Â online Â newsletters. Â â€œEverything Â we Â do Â is Â to Â kind Â of Â give Â everybody Â the Â chance Â to Â be Â in Â the Â spotlight,â€? Â Wilson Â said.
One Â way Â Wilson Â and Â Glembocki Â said Â they Â hope Â to Â achieve Â this Â is Â by Â hosting Â a Â winter Â lecture Â series. Â Dur-Â ing Â the Â months Â of Â January, Â February Â and Â March, Â speak-Â ers Â from Â different Â garden Â organizations Â will Â lend Â their Â knowledge Â to Â other Â Hudson Â Valley Â gardeners Â and Â busi-Â nesses Â about Â different Â topics.

Â â€œOur Â meeting Â was Â wonderful,â€? Â Glembocki Â said. Â â€œFull Â of Â energetic, Â enthusiastic Â people Â interested Â in Â HVGA.â€? Wilson Â said Â that Â people Â from Â all Â over Â the Â Hudson Â Valley Â from Â â€œall Â different Â levels Â and Â interestsâ€? Â turned Â out Â for Â the Â meeting. Â She Â said Â she Â was Â especially Â happy Â to Â see Â young Â people Â in Â attendance Â because Â those Â demo-Â graphics Â are Â often Â underrepresented Â at Â garden Â events. Â â€œIt Â really Â was, Â I Â mean Â for Â me, Â the Â ideal Â audience,â€? Â Wilson Â said.

â€œBoth Â of Â our Â organizations Â believe Â that Â this Â topic Â is Â not Â talked Â about Â enough Â within Â todayâ€™s Â society,â€? Â Smith Â said.

Â â€œI Â wouldnâ€™t Â say Â Iâ€™m Â a Â supporter Â of Â traditional Â beauty Â pageants,â€? Â Jenny Â Liba, Â a Â second-Âyear Â psychology Â major, Â said.

A Study In Cultural Spirituality BSU PRESENTS GROUP DISCUSSION ON AFRICAN THEISM By Tanique Williams Copy Editor | Twilliams91@hawkmail.newpaltz.edu “BSU Presents: Afrikan Spirituality,” a Black Stu- dent Union (BSU) hosted discussion, took place Tues- day, Nov. 13 in Lecture Center (LC) 104 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. The discussion, which traveled as far back as the story of Adam and Eve, opened a doorway for students to engage in the topic of African spirituality. Black Studies professors Dr. Karanja Carroll and Kaba Kamene not only educated the group of inter- ested students on the basics of African spirituality, but encouraged them to speak up and share their personal experiences with religion and spirituality. BSU Vice President Jada Young said Carroll, who is also the faculty advisor for BSU, approached her early in the semester about “re-doing” a discussion he led on African spirituality back in 2007. “He saw that Professor Kaba was in the audience
so he asked Kaba to join him,” she said. “From my un- derstanding, Carroll wanted to re-do the program from 2007 and he and Kaba are well-versed in speaking on the topic of African spirituality.” Young said that when it comes to planning events with the Department of Black Studies, the BSU usually tries to cater to the desires of the faculty by adapting what they say to their student-based audience. During the discussion, Kamene spoke about male and female roles in spirituality, citing the biblical story RI WKH ZRUOG¶V ¿UVW KXPDQ EHLQJV +H VDLG LW LV EH- lieved that women are punished with inferiority to men due to the actions of Eve — the woman who tempted her male counterpart, Adam, to eat from the forbidden tree of knowledge after she fell from the creator’s good graces. Kamene said that man should be strong enough to make wise decisions of his own, which is why he has a problem with the history of women being blamed on the Adam and Eve story.
“There’s no way you can have a just man any- thing,” he said. “For every god there’s a goddess.” Carroll said that his concerns about African spiri- tuality revolve around cultural, psychological, philo- sophical and theoretical issues. He said that spirituality is about being conscious of and attentive to “moral, ethical standards.” African spirituality, Carroll said, dictates that what is consumed, whether it be music, food or culture, be- comes a part of a person. “We need to trust ourselves and know that things will happen,” he said. “Trust your feelings.” Young said it’s important that students attend these events because it allows those who are not normally exposed to this level of discourse to learn new things. “I think the Black Studies Department is unique because they offer very stimulating and transformative events that are always relatable to our life experienc- es,” Young said.

Unmasking â€˜The Dork Knightâ€™
ONE (BAT)MAN SHOW MIXES GEEK LOVE AND PERSONAL MEMOIR By Â Carolyn Â Quimby A&E Â Editor Â | Â Carolyn.firstname.lastname@example.org
Some Â men Â canâ€™t Â be Â bought, Â bullied, Â reasoned Â or Â negotiated Â with. Â Some Â men Â just Â want Â to Â be Â dorks. Â Actor Â and Â comedian Â Jason Â Oâ€™Connellâ€™s Â one-Âman Â show, Â â€œThe Â Dork Â Knight,â€? Â ex-Â plores Â how Â he Â got Â his Â scars Â through Â memoir, Â impressions, Â pop-Âculture Â references Â and, Â of Â FRXUVHWKH%DWPDQÂżOPV On Â Sunday, Â Nov. Â 11, Â Oâ€™Connell Â per-Â formed Â his Â show Â at Â 2 Â and Â 8 Â p.m. Â and Â held Â a Â workshop Â for Â Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â students Â between Â the Â performances. Â The Â workshop Â was Â a Â â€œfree-Âform Â conversation, Â lecture Â and Â Q&Aâ€? Â about Â creating Â a Â solo Â piece Â and Â how Â liberating Â â€œself-Âgenerated Â workâ€? Â can Â be Â to Â performers, Â Oâ€™Connell Â said. Â Ally Â Farzetta, Â president Â of Â Alpha Â Psi Â Omega, Â the Â National Â Theater Â Honor Â Soci-Â ety, Â was Â responsible Â for Â bringing Â the Â show Â to Â campus.

Â After Â seeing Â â€œThe Â Dork Â Knight,â€? Â she Â said Â she Â approached Â Oâ€™Connell Â to Â ask Â if Â he Â would Â want Â to Â perform Â the Â show Â
at Â New Â Paltz. Â â€œHe Â did Â a Â special Â showing Â for Â the Â cast Â and Â crew Â of Â the Â festival...and Â I Â saw Â it Â and Â just Â thought Â it Â was Â phe-Â n o m e n a l , â€? Â F a r z e t t a Â said. Â â€œI Â was Â so Â moved Â and Â touched Â by Â it. Â I Â thought Â it Â so Â a p p l i c a b l e Â to Â anyone Â at Â any Â age Â and Â it Â could Â be Â such Â a Â great Â per-Â formance Â to Â put Â on Â at Â a Â college.â€? Â 1HZ 3DOW] LV WKH ÂżUVW XQLYHUVLW\ Oâ€™Connell Â has Â performed Â the Â show Â at, Â but Â he Â hopes Â to Â bring Â it Â to Â other Â campuses, Â he Â said.

Â â€œI Â canâ€™t Â wait Â to Â do Â more, Â and Â am Â hoping Â to Â begin Â by Â bringing Â the Â show Â to Â LIU-ÂCW Â Post Â and Â my Â alma Â mater, Â Hofstra Â University, Â in Â the Â near Â future.â€?
Oâ€™Connell Â said Â he Â had Â the Â initial Â idea Â for Â the Â show Â in Â 2005, Â but Â it Â was Â simply Â â€œa Â showcaseâ€? Â for Â his Â impersonations Â and Â come-Â dic Â â€œmusingsâ€?

Â Oâ€™Connell Â said. Â Farzetta Â said Â the Â show Â â€œworks Â really Â wellâ€? Â because Â of Â its Â simplicity Â in Â light-Â

Â She Â said Â itâ€™s Â just Â Oâ€™Connell Â onstage Â with Â a Â stool, Â talking Â to Â the Â audience, Â doing Â impressions Â of Â Batman Â characters Â and Â giving Â his Â commentary. Â â€œItâ€™s Â a Â deeply Â personal Â show,â€? Â she Â said. Â â€œBy Â the Â end, Â I Â was Â in Â tears. Â Itâ€™s Â very Â beauti-Â ful Â and Â touching, Â but Â itâ€™s Â also Â very Â funny Â at Â the Â same Â time.â€? Â â€œThe Â Dork Â Knightâ€? Â lifts Â the Â mask Â off Â Oâ€™Connellâ€™s Â Batman Â obsession, Â and Â he Â said Â he Â hopes Â people Â who Â see Â the Â show Â are Â re-Â minded Â of Â their Â own Â â€œsometimes Â irrationally Â intense Â feelingsâ€? Â for Â what Â they Â care Â about. â€œIâ€™d Â like Â people Â to Â come Â away Â from Â the Â show Â embracing Â their Â own Â personal Â obses-Â sions Â and Â seeing Â that Â those Â obsessions Â can Â be Â inspirations Â as Â well Â as Â diversions,â€? Â he Â said.

Â â€œI Â always Â thought Â the Â show Â was Â about Â Batman, Â but Â itâ€™s Â actually Â much Â more Â about Â me, Â and Â to Â have Â that Â mean Â something Â to Â people Â â€” Â even Â to Â just Â one Â person Â â€” Â Â is Â more Â than Â I Â ever Â dreamed Â of,â€?

LOCAL ARTIST DESIGNS MURAL FOR THE INNER WALL By Â Carolyn Â Quimby Â A&E Â Editor Â | Â Carolyn.email@example.com
The Â Inner Â Wall, Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â indoor Â rock Â climbing Â facility, Â has Â recently Â undergone Â a Â colorful Â face Â lift. Â Over Â the Â summer, Â local Â artist Â Wendy Â Toman Â painted Â a Â mural Â inside Â the Â gym Â featuring Â a Â bright Â col-Â or Â scheme, Â images Â of Â climbers Â and Â a Â representation Â of Â the Â Shawangunk Â Mountains Â commonly Â known Â as Â â€œThe Â Gunks.â€? Toman, Â who Â moved Â to Â New Â Paltz Â in Â April Â 2012, Â said Â she Â came Â up Â with Â the Â idea Â for Â the Â mural Â when Â she Â went Â to Â the Â gym Â with Â her Â children Â to Â climb Â and Â noticed Â the Â interiorâ€™s Â lack Â of Â color. â€œIt Â just Â looked Â like Â a Â blank Â canvas,â€? Â she Â said. Â â€œThe Â walls Â were Â all Â tan, Â all Â one Â color.â€? Â Glen Â McBride, Â owner Â of Â The Â Inner Â Wall, Â said Â To-Â man Â contacted Â him Â about Â working Â together. Â McBride Â said Â she Â came Â up Â with Â some Â ideas Â and Â sketches Â that Â he Â loved. â€œWe Â were Â looking Â to Â do Â a Â makeover Â anyway Â and Â
she Â kind Â of Â led Â the Â way,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œShe Â gave Â us Â the Â color Â palette, Â the Â idea Â and Â gave Â the Â staff Â and Â myself Â direction.â€? Toman Â said Â her Â goal Â was Â to Â make Â the Â gym Â more Â aesthetically Â pleasing Â and Â family-Âfriendly Â and Â not Â too Â masculine. â€œI Â wanted Â it Â to Â be Â appealing Â to Â females Â as Â well Â as Â males,â€? Â she Â said. Â â€œI Â asked Â if Â it Â was Â okay Â if Â we Â put Â pink Â and Â purple Â on Â the Â walls, Â and Â [Glen] Â said, Â â€˜Yeah, Â itâ€™s Â 1HZ3DOW]LWÂśVÂżQHÂś$OVR,ZDQWHGWRPDNHLWYHU\NLG friendly. Â Kids Â like Â bright Â colors Â so Â the Â kid Â wall Â is Â kind Â of Â a Â rainbow.â€? With Â the Â cold Â weather Â rolling Â in, Â climbers Â who Â spent Â all Â summer Â outdoors Â have Â started Â to Â return Â to Â the Â gym, Â and Â McBride Â said Â the Â â€œresponse Â has Â been Â incred-Â ible.â€? â€œA Â lot Â of Â our Â regulars Â come Â in Â during Â the Â winter Â season Â and Â then Â we Â donâ€™t Â see Â them Â again Â all Â summer, Â so Â a Â lot Â of Â them Â have Â come Â back Â recently...and Â are Â just Â amazed Â at Â the Â changes,â€? Â he Â said. Â
Toman Â said Â she Â was Â â€œnicely Â surprisedâ€? Â when Â she Â started Â to Â hear Â the Â reactions Â from Â college Â students Â who Â had Â been Â away Â from Â the Â gym Â since Â the Â spring Â semester Â and Â saw Â the Â transformation. Fourth-Âyear Â printmaking Â BFA Â Sebastian Â Bauer Â said Â the Â mural Â changed Â the Â gymâ€™s Â interior Â space Â by Â creating Â a Â more Â unique Â experience Â for Â customers. â€œI Â think Â that Â the Â mural Â serves Â the Â purpose Â of Â brightening Â up Â the Â space Â as Â well Â as Â creating Â more Â of Â a Â climbing Â atmosphere,â€? Â Bauer Â said. Â â€œIt Â helps Â mask Â the Â fact Â that Â you Â are Â climbing Â plastic Â holds Â on Â a Â wooden Â wall. Â It Â serves Â as Â a Â graphic Â reminder Â that Â indoor Â climb-Â ing Â is, Â in Â fact, Â linked Â to Â outdoor Â climbing.â€? The Â mural Â process, Â which Â started Â in Â June Â and Â took Â all Â summer Â to Â complete, Â was Â a Â â€œhuge Â effort,â€? Â but Â heâ€™s Â thrilled Â with Â the Â result, Â McBride Â said. Â â€œTo Â me, Â it Â just Â ties Â everything Â together Â now,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œIt Â brings Â everything Â into Â fruition Â that Â we Â envi-Â sioned Â when Â we Â took Â over Â the Â gym, Â because Â it Â just Â cre-Â ates Â an Â atmosphere Â of Â fun Â and Â enjoyment.â€?

â€˜FRIDAYâ€™ PRODUCER WILSON GETS IT WRONG AGAIN By Â Rachel Â Freeman Managing Â Editor Â | Â Rachel.firstname.lastname@example.org
â€œItâ€™s Thanksgivingâ€? Nicole Westbrook Many Â moons Â ago Â I Â wrote Â a Â review Â of Â Rebecca Â Blackâ€™s Â week-Â day Â wreck Â of Â a Â song Â â€œFriday.â€? Â Now, Â Producer Â Patrice Â Wilson Â has Â released Â a Â holiday Â horror Â in Â the Â form Â of Â young Â Nicole Â Westbrookâ€™s Â â€œItâ€™s Â Thanksgiving.â€? While Â Westbrook Â hasnâ€™t Â quite Â reached Â the Â hype Â of Â Black, Â this Â song Â has Â racked Â up Â 6,271,442 Â views Â (442 Â of Â which Â are Â mine) Â as Â of Â Nov. Â 14 Â after Â being Â posted Â on Â Nov. Â 7. I Â will Â now Â take Â you Â step Â by Â step Â through Â this Â video Â (you Â can Â THANK Â me Â later). So Â Iâ€™m Â all Â about Â counting Â down Â the Â days Â to Â Thanksgiving. Â After Â all, Â it Â is Â the Â most Â wonderful Â food Â coma-Âinducing Â day Â of Â the Â year. Â Maybe Â Iâ€™ve Â even Â sat Â on Â my Â bed Â staring Â longingly Â at Â my Â cal-Â endar Â while Â donning Â a Â â€œDance Â Until Â Dawnâ€? Â shirt, Â but Â I Â will Â neither Â FRQÂżUPQRUGHQ\LW
Upon Â hearing Â the Â words Â â€œIâ€™m Â wide Â awake Â and Â I Â should Â take Â a Â step Â to Â say Â thank Â you, Â thank Â you/ Â for Â the Â things Â youâ€™ve Â done Â and Â what Â you Â did, Â oh Â yeah, Â ooh Â yeah,â€? Â I Â have Â to Â admit, Â I Â blushed. Â Ni-Â cole Â Westbrook Â thanking Â â€Śme? Â Â I Â donâ€™t Â know Â what Â it Â is Â I Â did, Â but Â I Â feel Â damn Â good Â about Â myself Â now. We Â are Â then Â brought Â into Â a Â joyous Â montage, Â which Â pays Â hom-Â age Â to Â Blackâ€™s Â earth Â shattering Â lyrics Â describing Â the Â order Â of Â the Â days Â of Â the Â week. Â Westbrook Â so Â kindly Â informs Â us Â that Â â€œDecember Â was Â Christmas/ Â January Â was Â New Â Years/ Â April Â was Â Easter/ Â And Â the Â 4th Â of Â July,â€? Â accompanied Â by Â shots Â of Â middle Â schoolers Â partaking Â in Â each Â holidayâ€™s Â traditional Â activity, Â like Â Westbrook Â showing Â off Â a Â QHZEDVNHWDQGZDWFKLQJÂżUHZRUNVZLWKIULHQGV 2XUJLUOEHJLQVFRRNLQJXSDVWRUPDVH[HPSOLÂżHGE\Âł:LWK a Â turkey, Â hey/mashed Â potatoes, Â hey.â€? Â Even Â though Â sheâ€™s Â all Â smiles Â as Â she Â takes Â the Â turkey Â out Â of Â the Â oven Â and Â mixes Â those Â potatoes, Â my Â heart Â broke. Â Why Â is Â this Â adolescent Â girl Â making Â her Â own Â tur-Â key? Â By Â herself? Â What Â kind Â of Â cruel Â world Â is Â this? Â As Â she Â revels Â in Â all Â that Â is Â Thanksgiving, Â out Â pops Â Wilson Â himself, Â in Â typical Â Ark Â Music Â Factory Â fashion. Â Â While Â his Â two Â gi-Â ant Â diamonds Â will Â remain Â forever Â questionable, Â his Â jewelry Â choices Â fall Â to Â the Â wayside Â when Â you Â stop Â and Â think Â about Â the Â fact Â that Â he Â is Â for Â some Â reason Â lurking Â at Â all Â of Â their Â holiday Â festivities. Â Â Give Â the Â girl Â some Â space, Â man. One Â by Â one Â her Â friends Â arrive Â for Â the Â feast, Â but Â most Â impor-Â
tantly Â Wilson Â comes Â decked Â out Â in Â a Â full Â on Â turkey Â suit Â as Â he Â dances Â LQWR:HVWEURRNÂśVKRPHOLNHWKLVLVDOOÂżQHDQGQRUPDO1R3DWULFH no. Â Â How Â are Â you Â even Â a Â person? Â You Â have Â made Â me Â question Â my Â place Â in Â this Â world. The Â height Â of Â the Â video Â comes Â when Â the Â rap Â is Â for Â once Â del-Â egated Â to Â the Â songstress Â herself, Â instead Â of Â Wilson Â (one Â thing Â I Â am Â truly Â thankful Â for). Â Â It Â is Â within Â this Â rap Â that Â I Â have Â found Â my Â new Â mantra: Â â€œCanâ€™t Â be Â hateful, Â gotta Â be Â grateful.â€? Â Â This Â could Â be Â the Â new Â â€œYOLO.â€? Â â€œCBHGBG,â€? Â anyone? â€œMashed Â potatoes Â on Â my, Â on Â my Â table/ Â I Â got Â ribs Â smelling Â up Â my Â neighborsâ€™ Â cribs.â€? Â What? Â Ribs? Â And Â you Â claim Â this Â is Â your Â â€œfavoriteâ€? Â day, Â Nicole? Â Blasphemy. Â I Â donâ€™t Â even Â eat Â meat Â and Â I Â feel Â personally Â offended Â by Â this. Â I Â donâ€™t Â care Â how Â badly Â you Â wanted Â to Â use Â the Â word Â â€œcribs.â€? Â Youâ€™ve Â crossed Â the Â line. Â The Â line Â thinly Â drawn Â in Â turkey Â grease Â and Â tears. Then Â she Â starts Â singing Â into Â a Â turkey Â leg. Â Itâ€™s Â vaguely Â phallic, Â very Â uncomfortable Â and Â you Â lost Â me Â when Â you Â had Â the Â audacity Â to Â bring Â up Â ribs Â on Â Thanksgiving Â anyway. Â Plus Â I Â considered Â blinding Â P\VHOIZLWKDFLGDIWHUVHHLQJDPLGGOHDJHGPDQLQDWXUNH\VXLWÂżVW pumping Â among Â 12-Âyear-Âolds. Â Although Â this Â anthemâ€™s Â lifespan Â is Â short, Â Iâ€™m Â sure Â everyone Â will Â be Â singing Â it Â on Â Nov. Â 22 Â as Â they Â drink Â heavily Â to Â avoid Â actu-Â ally Â dealing Â with Â those Â family Â members Â they Â only Â see Â that Â one Â day Â when Â weâ€™ve Â â€œgotta Â be Â grateful.â€?

Â He Â stares Â straight Â into Â the Â crowd, Â as Â if Â there Â were Â a Â mirror, Â speaking Â in Â Michael Â Keatonâ€™s Â jittery Â tone Â confessing Â he Â is, Â in Â fact, Â Batman. Â He Â turns Â back Â to Â tell Â his Â mother Â to Â give Â him Â just Â a Â little Â more Â time Â to Â rehearse Â with Â the Â bathroom Â mirror;Íž Â heâ€™ll Â be Â done Â in Â a Â minute. Â Itâ€™s Â refreshing Â to Â see Â geekery Â in Â its Â organic Â form: Â that Â completely Â genuine Â love Â for Â something Â without Â a Â trace Â of Â iro-Â ny. Â When Â Oâ€™Connell Â performs Â his Â one Â man Â show Â â€œThe Â Dork Â Knight,â€? Â he Â serves Â self-Âdeprecating, Â witty Â and Â surprisingly Â heartfelt Â moments Â for Â a Â work Â derived Â from Â a Â comic Â book. Oâ€™Connellâ€™s Â show Â builds Â a Â narrative Â off Â his Â impressions Â of Â different Â characters Â from Â Batman Â canon Â including Â older Â fa-Â vorites Â â€” Â Keatonâ€™s Â Batman, Â Jack Â Nicholsonâ€™s Â Joker, Â Jim Â Car-Â reyâ€™s Â Riddler, Â Danny Â DeVitoâ€™s Â Penguin Â â€” Â and Â new Â classics Â like Â Christian Â Baleâ€™s Â Batman, Â Heath Â Ledgerâ€™s Â Joker Â and Â Tom Â Hardyâ€™s Â Bane. Â Â In Â some Â parts Â of Â the Â show, Â he Â transforms Â in Â posture Â and Â YRLFHĂ€XLGO\EHWZHHQIRXURUÂżYHGLIIHUHQWFKDUDFWHUVKROGLQJ boisterous Â conversations Â with Â himself Â as Â his Â Batman Â characters Â deliver Â harsh Â truths Â about Â his Â professional Â and Â love Â lives. Â He Â later Â mentions Â that Â the Â quirks Â from Â his Â Batman Â arsenal Â have Â wormed Â their Â way Â into Â his Â other Â characters Â in Â his Â work Â as Â an Â ac-Â tor: Â Keatonâ€™s Â brooding Â Batman Â hides Â in Â the Â layers Â of Â his Â Ham-Â let, Â Carreyâ€™s Â Riddler Â is Â under Â his Â Mercutio, Â DeVitoâ€™s Â monstrous Â
Penguin Â stance Â is Â mimicked Â in Â his Â Richard Â III. 7KHLPSUHVVLRQVYDU\LQOLNHQHVVEXWVRPHKRZQRWLQHIÂż cacy, Â to Â those Â they Â pay Â homage. Â Oâ€™Connell Â knows Â his Â strengths Â and Â weaknesses Â from Â every Â angle. Â Even Â the Â newer Â impressions Â that Â arenâ€™t Â as Â well-Ârehearsed Â manage Â to Â remain Â rounded Â and Â accessible. Â Even Â though Â I Â happen Â to Â think Â Bane Â sounds Â a Â bit Â like Â Grover Â speaking Â into Â the Â wrong Â side Â of Â a Â oscillating Â fan, Â Oâ€™Connell Â plays Â on Â the Â humor Â of Â the Â villainâ€™s Â less-Âthan-Âvicious Â YRLFH:KHQWKHOLQHVZHUHPXGGOHGRUGLIÂżFXOWWRXQGHUVWDQG itâ€™s Â done Â on Â purpose. Â A Â stand-Âout Â part Â of Â the Â show Â was Â when Â Oâ€™Connell Â took Â on Â Arnold Â Schwarzeneggerâ€™s Â Mr. Â Freeze, Â using Â the Â governatorâ€™s Â thick Â Austrian Â accent Â and Â seemingly-Âhaphazard Â approach Â to Â act-Â ing Â to Â encourage Â himself Â not Â to Â let Â fear Â force Â him Â to Â give Â up Â on Â his Â own Â acting Â dreams. Â I Â also Â just Â couldnâ€™t Â resist Â the Â ice-Âthemed Â wordplay. Â Call Â me Â a Â glutton Â for Â punishment. The Â strongest Â moments Â in Â the Â show Â were Â the Â rawest: Â the Â ones Â that Â hung Â over Â silence Â between Â the Â punchlines Â that Â com-Â manded Â laughter. Â Â Toward Â the Â end, Â Oâ€™Connell Â turns Â stage Â right, Â staring Â down Â to Â his Â dream Â girl Â â€” Â the Â much Â sought Â after Â com-Â panion Â in Â his Â narrative. Â Sheâ€™s Â smart, Â loves Â to Â draw Â the Â way Â he Â did Â and Â loves Â Batman Â just Â as Â much Â as Â he Â does. Â The Â heart-Âbusting Â moment Â is Â when Â he Â leans Â forward Â addressing Â her Â â€” Â his Â future Â daughter Â â€” Â telling Â her Â that Â itâ€™s Â okay, Â girls Â can Â dress Â as Â Batman Â too. Â Oâ€™Connell Â is Â candid Â in Â discussing Â the Â women Â in Â his Â life Â â€” Â giving Â them Â each Â a Â character Â pseudonym Â and Â honestly Â and Â ma-Â turely Â recalling Â his Â own Â misdeeds Â in Â the Â relationships Â with Â his Â personal Â Poison Â Ivy, Â Vicki Â Vale Â and Â Harley Â Quinn. Â This Â honesty Â is Â so Â powerful Â considering Â his Â self-Âconfessed Â tendency Â to Â place Â women Â on Â pedestals Â and Â the Â general Â tendency Â for Â geek Â culture Â to Â play Â the Â victim Â or Â commodify Â women. Thatâ€™s Â what Â sets Â this Â show Â apart Â from Â other, Â more Â narcis-Â sistic Â one-Âman Â deals: Â Oâ€™Connell Â doesnâ€™t Â always Â see Â himself Â as Â the Â superhero Â of Â his Â story, Â or Â even Â the Â hero Â Gotham Â deserves.

Last Â week, Â an Â Australian Â journalism Â student Â at Â SUNY Â Oswego Â got Â into Â hot Â water Â after Â allegedly Â breaking Â multiple Â codes Â of Â conduct Â at Â the Â college. Â Alex Â Myers Â was Â tasked Â with Â writing Â a Â pro-Â ÂżOHSLHFHRIDSXEOLFÂżJXUHLQWKH2VZHJRDUHDDQG chose Â their Â Div. Â III Â hockey Â coach Â Ed Â Gosek. Â In Â his Â attempt Â to Â write Â a Â well-Ârounded Â piece, Â Myers Â con-Â tacted Â rival Â coaches Â around Â the Â league Â and Â asked Â them Â to Â respond Â to Â a Â few Â run-Âof-Âthe-Âmill Â questions Â about Â the Â coach, Â which Â didnâ€™t Â raise Â any Â eyebrows. Â However, Â the Â ending Â of Â Myersâ€™ Â email Â sparked Â controversy. Â Myers, Â in Â an Â attempt Â to Â gain Â candid Â and Â hon-Â est Â responses Â from Â the Â coaches, Â ended Â his Â email Â ZLWKÂł%HDVIRUWKFRPLQJDV\RXOLNHZKDW\RXVD\ about Â Mr. Â Gosek Â does Â not Â have Â to Â be Â positive.â€? Â What Â transpired Â afterwards Â is Â troubling Â for Â any Â college Â journalist. Â The Â day Â after Â sending Â the Â email, Â Myers Â was Â VXVSHQGHG IURP 2VZHJR LQGHÂżQLWHO\ WROG WR UH move Â all Â of Â his Â belongings Â from Â his Â residence Â hall Â and Â was Â subject Â to Â arrest Â if Â he Â entered Â any Â of Â the Â campus Â buildings. Â Why? Â Because Â he Â allegedly Â vio-Â lated Â the Â universityâ€™s Â code Â of Â conduct. Â Among Â Myersâ€™ Â charges Â was Â a Â section Â of Â the Â FRGHWKDWFRYHUVÂłKDUDVVPHQWLQWLPLGDWLRQVWDON ing, Â domestic Â violence, Â or Â creating Â a Â hostile Â envi-Â ronment Â through Â discrimination Â or Â bias Â toward Â any Â individual Â or Â group,â€? Â and Â even Â more Â disturbing Â Â˛ÂłLQYDVLRQRISULYDF\Â´ As Â journalists, Â we Â are Â expected Â to Â print Â the Â truth.

The Â New Â Paltz Â Oracle
As Â the Â next Â town Â board Â meeting Â regarding Â the Â development Â of Â Park Â Point Â approaches, Â we Â stu-Â dents Â need Â to Â inform Â ourselves Â on Â the Â projectâ€™s Â de-Â tails. Â Additional Â housing Â is Â needed Â for Â the Â college Â community Â so Â the Â fact Â that Â itâ€™s Â being Â addressed Â and Â pushed Â forward Â is Â a Â positive Â achievement Â for Â the Â campus. Â However, Â when Â you Â begin Â to Â sift Â through Â the Â 300 Â page Â Draft Â Environmental Â Impact Â State-Â ment Â (DEIS), Â a Â document Â required Â by Â law Â prior Â to Â construction Â that Â analyzes Â the Â developmentâ€™s Â plan Â and Â its Â effect Â on Â the Â surrounding Â environment, Â the Â report Â indicates Â that Â this Â acclaimed Â addition Â to Â the Â college Â may Â not Â meet Â the Â standards Â for Â sustainabil-Â ity Â set Â by Â SUNY Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â own Â Sustainability Â Plan. Â So, Â what Â is Â Park Â Point? Â Park Â Point Â is Â a Â pro-Â posed Â housing Â complex Â that Â will Â be Â located Â off Â of Â Route Â 32 Â South Â as Â an Â off-Âcampus Â apartment Â option Â VSHFLÂżFDOO\IRUVWXGHQWVDQGIDFXOW\+RXVLQJRYHU 700 Â people Â within Â the Â complex, Â the Â development Â will Â have Â to Â construct Â its Â own Â sewage Â treatment Â facility Â and Â well Â water Â supply. Â The Â location Â of Â the Â complex Â is Â on Â SUNY Â Foundation Â land Â which Â will Â be Â leased Â to Â the Â private Â corporation Â Wilmorite Â to Â be Â VHSDUDWHO\EXLOWDQGSURÂżWHGIURPDQGWKHQKDQGHG over Â to Â SUNY Â control Â in Â 40 Â years. Â Additional Â housing Â is Â needed. Â But Â develop-Â ing Â these Â new Â buildings Â with Â green Â standards Â is Â essential. Â As Â a Â college Â that Â promotes Â itself Â and Â takes Â pride Â in Â renovating Â buildings, Â such Â as Â the Â Crispell Â Residence Â Hall, Â to Â LEED Â Gold Â standards Â and Â strives Â for Â sustainable Â practices Â on Â campus, Â the Â Park Â Point Â project Â is Â a Â bit Â bewildering. Â LEED, Â or Â Leadership Â in Â Energy Â and Â Envi-Â ronmental Â Design, Â is Â an Â internationally Â recognized Â JUHHQ EXLOGLQJ SURJUDP WKDW SURYLGHV YHULÂżFDWLRQ of Â green Â building Â practices Â ranked Â on Â a Â four Â tier Â system Â (Platinum Â being Â the Â highest Â followed Â by Â Gold, Â Silver Â and Â Bronze Â ratings). Â In Â New Â York, Â all Â
SXEOLF EXLOGLQJV DUH UHTXLUHG WR EH FHUWLÂżHG /((' Silver. Â Hereâ€™s Â the Â loophole Â for Â Park Â Point Â â€” Â it Â does Â QRWQHHGWRDELGHWRWKHVHFHUWLÂżFDWLRQUXOHVVLQFHLWÂśV being Â built Â by Â a Â private Â company Â on Â private Â land Â â€” Â VRSUHVVXULQJ:LOPRULWHIRUJUHHQEXLOGLQJFHUWLÂżFD tion Â is Â absolutely Â vital. Â And Â if Â the Â complex Â is Â going Â to Â be Â in Â SUNY Â hands Â in Â 40 Â years Â (and Â who Â knows Â what Â kind Â of Â green Â standards Â will Â exist Â then) Â the Â question Â I Â ask Â is, Â why Â not Â build Â it Â right Â from Â the Â start Â and Â use Â this Â as Â an Â opportunity Â to Â set Â an Â example Â for Â the Â rest Â of Â SUNY Â and Â other Â higher Â education Â institu-Â tions Â for Â establishing Â more Â environmentally Â sustain-Â DEOHDQGHIÂżFLHQWSUDFWLFHV" Some Â concerns Â that Â were Â apparent Â in Â the Â DEIS Â report Â relate Â to Â the Â location Â where Â the Â development Â is Â planned. Â An Â orchard Â was Â located Â on Â the Â site Â and Â a Â pear Â orchard Â still Â operates Â on Â one Â section Â of Â the Â land. Â The Â project Â plans Â call Â for Â a Â newly Â drilled Â well Â for Â the Â water Â supply Â on Â lands Â that Â have Â residual Â pesticides Â present Â in Â the Â soil. Â Soil Â tests Â documented Â high Â lev-Â els Â of Â arsenic, Â and Â water Â tests Â showed Â chemicals Â and Â pollutants Â exceeding Â their Â limit Â within Â the Â ground-Â water, Â including Â decachlorobiphenyl Â (a Â PCB), Â 4-Âter-Â phenyl-Âd14, Â dimethylnirtrobenzene, Â perylene-Âd12, Â DQGWULSKHQ\OSKRVSKDWHXVHGDVDSODVWLFL]HUDQGÂżUH retardant). Â The Â fact Â that Â I Â have Â a Â hard Â time Â pronounc-Â ing Â or Â recognizing Â these Â chemical Â names Â is Â enough Â to Â keep Â me Â from Â taking Â a Â sip. Â More Â research Â that Â is Â communicated Â to Â the Â wider Â community Â needs Â to Â be Â done Â to Â ensure Â the Â safety Â of Â future Â residents Â and Â the Â surrounding Â environment. Just Â recently, Â the Â campus Â released Â their Â Sustain-Â ability Â Plan Â regarding Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â effort Â to Â improve Â and Â encourage Â environmental Â conservation. Â Within Â WKHSODQLWVSHFLÂżFDOO\VWDWHVWKDWÂłWKHFROOHJHÂśVÂżUP commitment Â to Â making Â this Â institution Â a Â model Â of Â sustainability Â and Â a Â center Â of Â environmental Â learning Â will Â not Â cease.â€? Â There Â are Â many Â positive Â goals Â and Â achievements Â within Â the Â plan Â including Â how Â in Â 2008 Â WKH FROOHJH EHFDPH D ÂłVLJQDWRU\ WR WKH $PHULFDQ College Â and Â University Â Presidentâ€™s Â Climate Â Commit-Â
ment, Â a Â national Â program Â that Â facilitates Â the Â expan-Â sion Â of Â environmental Â education Â and Â research Â and Â to Â improve Â environmental Â performance Â on Â college Â FDPSXVHVÂ´,WVSHFLÂżFDOO\H[SODLQVKRZWKHFDPSXVÂś effort Â to Â reduce Â greenhouse Â gases Â and Â become Â car-Â bon Â neutral Â is Â of Â utmost Â concern. Â However, Â when Â going Â back Â to Â the Â DEIS Â for Â 3DUN3RLQWLWVD\VÂłDWWHPSWLQJWREHFRPHFDUERQQHX tral Â is Â a Â laudable Â goal Â for Â this Â project Â but Â will Â remain Â elusive Â and Â impractical. Â The Â cost Â of Â such Â an Â effort Â in Â terms Â of Â consultation, Â design, Â development, Â and Â actual Â construction Â will Â cause Â the Â project Â to Â cease Â as Â a Â viable Â business Â venture.â€? Â Yes, Â up Â front Â the Â cost Â of Â building Â with Â green Â technology Â and Â materials Â is Â higher;Íž Â however, Â the Â return Â over Â the Â years Â will Â prove Â otherwise Â since Â using Â less Â energy Â is Â cost Â effective. Â Â Now Â is Â the Â time Â to Â educate Â yourself Â and Â read Â up Â on Â the Â facts Â on Â what Â the Â campus Â Sustainability Â Plan Â claims Â to Â achieve Â and Â what Â this Â new Â upcoming Â development Â will Â entail. Â We Â are Â all Â aware Â (or Â should Â be) Â of Â climate Â change Â and Â how Â our Â actions Â as Â humans Â KDYHFRQVHTXHQFHV7KHZRUOGÂśVUHVRXUFHVDUHÂżQLWH and Â we Â must Â work Â alongside Â mother Â nature Â on Â this Â one.
